While agents of the Jewish-Masonic cryptocracy work around the clock spreading lies and disinformation, many sincere people are getting sucked into their traps. One of the fastest spreading fallacies of these agents is the conspiracy theory that the Catholic Church—through the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), the Pope, and/or the supposedly still-existing Knights Templars—are running the New World Order conspiracy.

“It’s not the Jews!” these agents and their naïve dupes claim. “We have been fooled for the last 400 years into thinking the Jews are leading the NWO when it’s really the Jesuits, the Vatican, and the Black Pope!”

The game of these agenturs is very simple. Everything that has been typically attributed to Jews for hundreds of years, for example, the creation of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, the drafting of the Satanic Babylonian Talmud, and even Zionism itself, are all the work of the Jesuits. It’s a rewriting of history. Take every historical book from the last 2,000 years that names “Jews,” cross it out, and replace it with “Catholics” or some euphemistic term that indicts the Church and you have the Jesuit conspiracy meme summed up.

From attributing the creation of Zionism to an excommunicated Jesuit named Franciso Ribera to blaming the rise of Hitler and Nazism on the Church, there is no place the Jesuit memers won’t go. It borders on clownish with absurd claims that the Jesuits sunk the Titanic, created Islam, and assassinated John F. Kennedy. Of course, the grand proof they present of this alleged Jesuit conspiracy is Jewish Adam Weishaupt’s (founder of the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati) education under the Jesuits—something these Jesuit memers almost always bring up. Hypocrisy runs deep among these anti-Catholics, as they say in one breath that it is wrong to blame one group of people (especially Jews) and in the next breath they blame all the world’s problems on the Church. These clowns must have low regard for their audience for them to believe their blatant double standard goes unnoticed.

One hand tied behind the back
Before I go on here, I want to point out that this is not to absolve the Catholic Church of clerical abuses and legitimate corruption within it. And, of course, there is the heretical Second Vatican Council that has been foisted upon Catholics, which further maligns the legitimate faith and demonizes (at least in Protestant eyes) Catholics in general. This council is the handcuff that has one hand of the Church behind its back—done so that She would not be able to defend herself against the Judeo-Masonic onslaught going on. With the Church on the ropes, so to speak, the Jesuit meme is a sucker punch.

*a note on semantics

Meme
I would define a meme as the mindless replication or imitation of a concept or idea, especially a false one. Much of the popularity of the Jesuit meme is due to dupes, especially in conspiracy circles, who mindlessly accept, without verifying, the Jesuit meme and then replicate it.

53a5fd185b71aProponents of the Jesuit conspiracy meme
Based on their worldview, the Jesuit conspiracy meme is a convenient scapegoat and tool of self-deception for several groups, including but not limited to:

  • Jewish groups, Zionists (Jewish and Protestant)
  • Seventh Day Adventists
  • COINTELPRO
  • New or naïve conspiracy researchers
  • New Agers
  • Evangelicals, fundamentalist Protestants, Calvinists
  • Freemasons, Enlightenment thinkers
  • Catholic haters

The idea that Jews are running the NWO is rather inconvenient for them and exposes them for what they are. You would be hard pressed to find a Jesuit memer who is the slightest bit anti-Zionist. Many of them also happen to endorse other irregular conspiracy theories, like that of “reptilians” and “death fakers”. Then there are some who pretend to be anti-Zionist but with the appendage that the Vatican is really behind the Zionists. The fact of the matter is, the idea that there exists a Judeo-Masonic conspiracy has been a cultural belief for hundreds of years; whereas the Jesuit conspiracy is the counter-culture belief, in other words, the revolutionary belief. Furthermore, the Judeo-Masonic conspiracy theory has a huge amount of evidence behind it while the Jesuit theory has next to none. Jesuit theorists count on memetic replication, because if one actually checks their claims against recorded history, they theorists will be revealed as frauds.

The list of Internet personalities replicating the Jesuit meme seems to be growing by the day.

Common fallacious arguments of the Jesuit conspiracy meme

  • The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) created Freemasonry (through the Knights Templars] and is implicitly masonic itself
  • Excommunicated Jesuit Francisco Ribera created Zionism/premillennial dispensationalism
  • The Jesuits/Vatican control the monetary system
  • The Jesuits control Hollywood
  • The RCC created the religion of Islam (yes, they really claim this)
  • The RCC created the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati through Jesuit-trained (actually a converso) Adam Weishaupt
  • The RCC published (created?) the Babylonian Talmud
  • The RCC created the Nazis and is responsible for all anti-Semitism
  • The Jesuits are behind the CIA, Federal Reserve, and communism
  • The Jesuits ignited the French and Russian revolutions

Basics of the Jesuit meme: The Black Pope
The Jesuit theorists claim that the head of the Jesuits, the Superior General, is the “Black Pope”—one whose power supersedes that of the Pope and, subsequently, the Holy Church. This Black Pope and his Jesuits are said to be leading the New World Order conspiracy; although, none of the Jesuit memers can give a clear explanation as to what the Jesuits’ supposed goal of world domination is and why they seek this. In contrast, with the Judeo-Masonic conspiracy theory, the goal is quite clearly the overthrow of Christianity and Western Civilization. With the New World Order, regardless of who one think is leading it, it’s clear to anyone that the NWO conspiracy is attempting to dismantle all religions, especially Christianity. So, why would the supposed leaders of that conspiracy, the Jesuits, be working to destroy their own Christian-based institution? If one says the Jesuits are not Christian in the first place and this is why they are leading the NWO to destroy religion and Christianity, then one has to admit that either a). the Catholic Church also is not a Christian institution (which would require a whole new set of evidence and proof), or b). the Jesuits are saboteurs of the Catholic Church and Christianity in general. If one answers with “a”, then the root of the problem is not the Jesuits but the Catholic Church itself, since the Catholic Church predates the Jesuits. But the Jesuit memers don’t focus on this. The focus is all on the Jesuits. This is the clearest evidence that they have other motives for propagating this theory. Now, if the answer is “b”, then we can speculate as to who is really behind the Jesuits, since it couldn’t be the Catholic Church itself. Seeing as the first Jesuits were overrepresented with Jews and a Jew, one Ignatius Loyola, founded the Jesuits, it’s plausible that a Jesuit conspiracy against the Catholic Church and society were being orchestrated by Jews. Add to this the fact that Jews were closely involved with the Protestant Reformation, around the time the Jesuits were formed, and the plausibility becomes stronger. Further evidence that the Jesuits, if they are acting on behalf of the Church’s interests, are a failed world conspirator is in the fact that world trends are going in the opposite direction of everything Catholic, be it the Church’s pro-life stance, anti-modernism, traditional marriage, etc. Add to that the world’s slide towards nihilism and the Jesuit conspiracy theory loses even more credibility.

The “Black Pope’s” alleged fronts: Knights of Malta, Catholic universities

“Jesuit Trained” – Jesuit conspiracy theorists claim that the Black Pope works to subvert society by positioning Jesuits in high positions of power throughout the world via the Knights of Malta and Jesuit training centres (Jesuit-founded universities). Since Jesuit universities are open to the public and do not require students to be Catholics, much less Jesuits, it’s a little ridiculous for the Jesuit theorists to claim that so and so is a Jesuit agent or “Jesuit trained” merely because they went to a Jesuit-founded university. But that’s exactly what they do. Due to the spread of the disease of modernism, Jesuit universities are now more or less secular and hostile to the Catholic Church. For example, many Jesuit-founded universities advocate—not just accept—homosexual rights, abortion, women’s liberation, LGBT rights, etc. Historian E. Michael Jones, a well respected traditional Catholic, was fired by one of these supposed Catholic universities because he simply stood for traditional Catholicism. Whether a result of the Jesuits or Second Vatican Council proscriptions, these Jesuit universities cannot be considered Catholic other than by having Catholic roots. The claim of someone being “Jesuit-trained” is vague and meaningless in the context in which these Jesuit theorists give. They have to provide more than just someone’s mere attendance at a Jesuit-founded university. And with their claim that many Jesuits are secret members, they think they can disregard the burden of proof further more.

Knights of Malta – Jesuit theorists, where they can’t malign someone based on their university attendance, malign them by their membership with the Knights of Malta or even if someone displays a logo or symbol[i] bearing the remotest resemblance to the symbols of the Knights of Malta or the Jesuits. If those canards fail, they outright deceive their audience by falsely associating the Catholic Knights of Malta—officially called Sovereign Military Order of Malta—with Freemasonry. Speculative freemasonry’s York Rite has a degree titled Order of Knights of Malta (click on the image to the right to see a larger view of the masonic structure of degrees). The Vatican has issued a clarification stating that it does not recognize any other group using the Malta name but its own.

“…the Holy See recognises and supports only the Sovereign Military Order of Malta – also known as the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta – and the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. The Holy See foresees no additions or innovations in this regard.

All other orders, whether of recent origin or mediaeval foundation, are not recognised by the Holy See. Furthermore, the Holy See does not guarantee their historical or juridical legitimacy, their ends or organisational structures.

To avoid any possible doubts, even owing to illicit issuing of documents or the inappropriate use of sacred places, and to prevent the continuation of abuses which may result in harm to people of good faith, the Holy See confirms that it attributes absolutely no value whatsoever to certificates of membership or insignia issued by these groups, and it considers inappropriate the use of churches or chapels for their so-called “ceremonies of investiture”.[ii]

 

The Jesuit theorists must not have foreseen this embarrassing repudiation of their claims that the Jesuits and the Catholic Church are somehow masonic because of the Malta link. Perhaps had they done some actual research, they would have seen this coming and abandoned the lie. Furthermore, Freemasonry uses Jewish and Protestant names for its degrees as well. Using their reasoning, we could argue that Jews and Protestants are masonic because of this also.

The Knights Templar – Some Jesuit theorists will go so far as to say that the RCC founded freemasonry through the Knights Templar, a military order established by the Church at the beginning of the Middle Ages (the Templars eventually became corrupt and apparently compromised with gnosticism, and the Church disbanded them accordingly). Because the freemasons (an occult group established long after the Catholic Templars had been abolished) have a masonic title called “Order of Knights Templar Commandery”, part of the York Rite initiation, some confuse the two different Templar groups. Of course, the Jesuit theorists capitalize on this confusion and try to say that the two are one and the same. They elaborate on how the Medieval Templars supposedly evolved into what is now called freemasonry (they completely ignore the fact that the Catholic Church abolished the Templar order). The apparent gnostic influence on the Catholic Templars, before they were disbanded, was likely due to the spread of Kabbalism, so the Kabbalah is the root of what eventually became freemasonry, not “Templarism”. Consider that the written Kabbalah came into prominence in the 12th and 13th centuries, the same time the Templars were rising in power.

“The Jewish connection with modern Freemasonry is an established fact everywhere manifested in its history. The Jewish formulas employed by Freemasonry, the Jewish traditions which run through its ceremonial, point to a Jewish origin, or to the work of Jewish contrivers . . . . Who knows but behind the Atheism and desire of gain which impels them to urge on Christians to persecute the Church and destroy it, there lies a hidden hope to reconstruct their Temple, and in the darkest depths of secret society plotting there lurks a deeper society still which looks to a return to the land of Judah and to the re- building of the Temple of Jerusalem?”[iii]

Today, there is no organization called the Knights Templar, yet Jesuit conspiracy sites are full of references to them as if they still exist and run the world. Columnist Atila Sinke Guimarães explains in detail the history of the Knights of Malta and the Templars in contrast with their masonic imitators.[iv]

The suspicious trajectory of the Jesuit conspiracy theory
Whether the Jesuits were guilty of the charges laid against them in their early days, it’s highly suspicious that most, if not all, groups supporting theories against them were in league with Jews, be they Protestant reformers (late middle ages), Enlightenment thinkers, masonic/illuminist agents (18th and 19th centuries), and Jewish lobbies (20th and 21st centuries). All of these anti-Catholic groups are themselves accused of organizing and/or leading international conspiracies, so they have the motive to deflect criticism of themselves and provide a scapegoat in the hopes of saving face. Modern Jesuit conspiracy theorists appear to target two audiences: anti-Catholics and conspiracy researchers. The latter targeting functions to manage opposition to the NWO conspiracy and is further evidence that the Jesuit theorist meme is actually advancing the NWO’s revolutionary progress.

The Nazi fallacy
So blind to history, the Jesuit theorists assume that because the Catholic Church is anti-Jewish by nature, restricted Jewish influence in society, especially during the Middle Ages, and helped spread anti-Jewish conspiracy theories, it must be that it was also in league with or brought about the rise of Nazi Germany’s racialist policies. Jewish lobbies share in common with Jesuit theorists this malicious libel against the Church. They blame Catholicism for the rise of Hitler and the alleged Holocaust of 6 million Jews. What they won’t tell their audience is that the Nazis propagated Jesuit conspiracy theories themselves—Hubert Hermanns’ The Jesuit: The Obscurantist without a Homeland[v], for exampleand persecuted and murdered Jesuits on account of their membership. But more importantly, Roman Catholic opposition to Judaism has always been on the grounds of the Jew as a “theological construct” created in opposition to Christ, in the words of Catholic historian E. Michael Jones. Papal decrees against Jews throughout the Church’s 2,000-year history maintains that Jewry should be resisted on the grounds of their rebellion against Christ and that Jews should be restricted from positions of influence in society, should they seek to subvert the Catholic theocracy. Papal bull Sicut Judaeis, first issued during the Middle Ages, is emphatic that Jews are not to be harmed. Furthermore, Catholics are forbidden on pain of excommunication to force convert Jews or take their property. Pope Callixtus II states in the original bull:

“[The Jews] ought to suffer no prejudice. We, out of the meekness of Christian piety, and in keeping in the footprints or Our predecessors of happy memory, the Roman Pontiffs Calixtus, Eugene, Alexander, Clement, admit their petition, and We grant them the buckler of Our protection.”

It’s obvious that because of the Jewish penchant for antagonistic behaviour, the Popes foresaw the potential for resentment of the Jews to evolve into pogroms. It’s absolutely absurd to think that the Catholic Church could in any way have brought about the “Holocaust” of the Jews, especially considering that 18 successive Popes re-affirmed Sicut Judaeis. The Church has not changed its stance in this respect. The Catholic Church never endorsed, either officially or unofficially, the policies of Hitler and the national socialists. Catholic opposition to Judaism then is quite different from Nazi opposition, which was based entirely on the assumption that Jews were racially corrupt.

The Jesuit theorist runs into a major contradiction when he attempts to say that Nazism is a Jesuit creation, because then he must account for his other theory that the Jesuits also supposedly created Zionism—something that runs contrary to Nazism. I won’t elaborate here, but the evidence suggests that Nazism is actually a Jewish creation, using a Cabbalist dialectic of opposites, which paved the way for establishing the illegal state of Israel in 1948 as well as the Holocaust dogma of Judaism[vi], which has undeservedly become iconic in recent history. There is also evidence that Hitler was not legitimate opposition to the Jewish money power, and even evidence that Hitler himself may have been Jewish.[vii]

Protestants Rewrite Bible

The Zionist fallacy
It seems the Jesuit theorist rests his entire claim that the Jesuits created Zionism on one obscure Jesuit who postulated a theory that was never established as Catholic dogma. It’s true that Jesuit Francisco Ribera (1537-1591) did advocate some views that would fall into a “futurist” eschatological point of view; however, it was not millenarianist, or of the premillennial dispensationalist type that lies at the root of the Christian Zionist heresy.[viii] Zionism comes from an arrested rendering of the Old Testament concept of a chosen people. This is why the Jews murdered the Old Testament prophets who tried to correct them on their perverted supremacist vision of what it meant to be God’s chosen people. This is one of the reasons why the Jews also murdered our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, for He pointed out the deception and evil in their supremacist yearnings. The whole Ribera claim is inconsistent in that Ribera allegedly concocted his views as counter-reformation teaching. But the Reformation was advocating futurism (specifically millenarianism), so how could he be countering it with more futurism (his supposed futurism was really amillennial)? Jesuit theorists are grasping at straws with this one. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that because the Jews rejected Jesus, they still await at future Messiah (futurism) when he will supposedly rule and reign with the Jews on the present Earth. Futurism, really messianism, is essentially Jewish. Furthermore, Ribera didn’t write his 500-page commentary on the Book of Revelation to start a new idea. He was indeed countering the Reformation propaganda of millenarianism, which held that the Papacy was the anti-Christ, Beast system, and the coming world messiah would destroy it and set up his millennial reign on Earth, headquartered in Jerusalem. Catholic teaching holds that the Church’s reign on this Earth since Christ died and was resurrected is evidence of fulfillment of Christ’s reign on Earth; therefore, a future millennial reign is not necessary.

The freemason fallacy
Equally as absurd and related to the Zionist fallacy is the claim that modern freemasonry is a continuation of the Catholic Knights Templars—Catholicism itself. Forget that Popes have issued decrees condemning freemasonry and its Enlightenment, libertarian offshoots; forget that Catholicism itself is philosophically and ideologically opposed to freemasonry, the Jesuit theorists are most persistent with this fallacy. Instead of providing any evidence that the Catholic Church is behind freemasonry, the Jesuit theorist will simply make the reach by associating the Church with freemasonry through the Knights Templars and Knights of Malta confusion. That’s their evidence—semantics.

Papal pronouncements against freemasonry and its offshoots—specifically “Americanism,” which sprang from the Enlightenment and masonic libertarianism—include but are not limited to the following:

Clement XII, Constitution “In Eminenti”, 28 April, 1738;
Benedict XIV, “Providas”, 18 May, 1751;
Pius VII, “Ecclesiam”, 13 September, 1821;
Leo XII, “Quo graviora”, 13 March, 1825;
Pius VIII, Encyclical “Traditi”, 21 May, 1829;
Gregory XVI, “Mirari”, 15 August, 1832;
Pius IX, Encyclical “Qui pluribus”, 9 November, 1846;
Pius IX, Allocution “Quibus quantisque malis”, 20 April, 1849;
Pius IX, Encyclical “Quanta cura”, 8 December, 1864;
Pius IX, Allocution “Multiplices inter”, 25 September, 1865;
Pius IX, Constitution “Apostolicæ Sedis”, 12 October, 1869;
Pius IX, Encyclical “Etsi multa”, 21 November, 1873;
Leo XIII, Encyclical “Humanum genus”, 20 April, 1884;
Leo XIII, “Præclara”, 20 June, 1894;
Leo XIII, “Annum ingressi”, 18 March, 1902 (against Italian Freemasonry);
Leo XIII, Encyclical “Etsí nos”, 15 February, 1882;
Leo XIII, “Ab Apostolici”, 15 October, 1890.

To demonstrate the seriousness with which the Church took of the heresy of freemasonry, 12 different Popes issued a total of 23 three papal pronouncements against it. No other heresy has received more attention.

The Judeo-masonic ambition to overthrow throne (monarchy) and altar (Catholic Church), which is well documented, was achieved through a series of subversions[ix] and revolutions—the French Revolution being one of which was most successful, as France was as stronghold of the Catholic theocracy. England, where Catholicism had been overthrown during the 16th-century reign of apostate King Henry VIII, was already under the control of freemasonry (specifically Rosicrucianism) and Enlightenment thought at the time of the French Revolution. Of course, the Jewish-masonic alliance was already well established during the 16th-century Protestant Reformation, so the Reformation was a natural fit for the anti-Catholic revolutionary arsenal of the cryptocracy; in fact, all the evidence suggests that freemasonry is a covert extension of Judaism—a sort of philo-Semitic religion with perhaps more aggressive methods than Judaism in destroying Christ’s influence on Earth. The Jesuit theorist will distort and twist history in all kinds of ways in a desperate attempt to fit their anti-Catholic, pro-Jewish worldview. It then becomes imperative for the reader to understand real history in order to see through the lies.

The Illuminati fallacy
When Adam Weishaupt founded the Order of the Illuminati in Bavaria in 1776, it seems he intended to prevent the Jesuit order, which had at that point been suppressed by Pope Clement XIV, from regaining their former position in Europe.[x] Weishaupt was not a Jesuit himself; however, Jesuits educated him during his youth. Jesuit theorists focus only on this, while ignoring the more important manoeuvrings that were going on during the formation of Illuminist systems. Additionally, Weishaupt did not invent the concept of Illuminism, which was based on a perversion of the Catholic sacrament of confession.

“It wasn’t the goal of world domination, which, in the popular mind at the time, the Illuminati shared with the Jesuits that the public found as upsetting; it was the means whereby the Illuminati were going to achieve those goals. Weishaupt took the idea of examination of conscience and sacramental confession from the Jesuits and, after purging them of their religious elements, turned them into a system of intelligence gathering, spying, and informing, in which members were trained to spy on each other and inform their superiors.”[xi]

Jewish writer Bernard Lazare, an anti-Catholic, seems to brag about the Jewish orchestration of secret societies and the Illuminati:

“There were Jews around Weishaupt, and Martinez de Pasqualis, a Jew of Portuguese origin, organised numerous groups of Illuminati in France, recruiting many adepts to whom he taught the doctrine of reintegration. The lodges founded by Martinez were mystical, whilst the other orders of Freemasonry were rather rationalist. This permits one to say that the secret societies represented the two sides of the Jewish mind: practical rationalisation and pantheism.”[xii]

Some historians credit Martinez de Pasqualis with creating Illuminism, not Weishaupt.

The Illuminati wasn’t so much an organization as much as it was a concept of blackmail and espionage that was soon adopted by almost all secret societies, and it is still in use today. Talk about the Illuminati’s influence on society is sort of a red herring, especially in the way that it is used today. Modern conspiracy researchers portray the Illuminati as the end all, be all…as a highly organized institution, which it isn’t. It’s a concept or system. The Jesuit theorist obsession with Weishaupt, the Illuminati, and their supposed collaboration with the Jesuits shows their inclination to sensationalism rather than historical accuracy.

Henry Makow duped by Zionist

The Fall of Jerusalem

The Fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

By Timothy Fitzpatrick
August 12, 2014 Anno Domini

Normally I wouldn’t critique an article from Henry Makow’s website, as he posts from a number of different authors and on a wide variety of topics, not with all of which I agree. But because of the sensitive nature of the last month, the Gaza massacre, and because Mr. Makow is a popular anti-Zionist researcher, I felt it incumbent upon me to call out what I see as the Zionist subversion of his website.

On August 9, Makow published an article by Chris Glover entitled Is Israeli Aggression Based on End Times Prophesy? A quick search turned up nothing about the author, so there is little we can go on about the author’s motives other than what he has written. The article argues that despite the “satanic assault on Gaza”, it’s all going according to Bible prophecy and the media’s heavy focus on Gaza is hastening worldwide indignation against Israel, which the Bible supposedly said would happen in the “end times.”

Glover sets the tone early in the article for his propaganda with,

According to the Bible and the Book of Revelations, all the nations of the world will turn against Israel during the end times.

This is the typical premillennial-dispensationalist heresy of futurism—the myths of which I dispel in The Jewish command to deceive Christians about Bible prophecy (I asked Mr. Makow to republish this article at his website in response to Glover’s piece, but there has been no action on it at this time). Firstly, it makes the profound error of assuming that today’s Israel constitutes the Israel spoken of in the Bible and that God has any use for the physical nation of Israel as it was over 2,000 years ago. Furthermore, to support this heretical contrivance, the author makes a weak argument for what he perceives as the increased media attention on the Gaza massacre. Frankly, the media has under-reported the matter and, in the case of American media, portrayed Gaza as the villain. But that doesn’t matter to Glover. He must stretch the truth in order to support his remaining arguments. And any truths Glover tells, like that the Mossad-CIA alliance is behind the ISIS-ISIL threat, is overshadowed by his eschatological confusion.

After Glover has sucked the reader in with talk of false flags in the Middle East and Ukraine, which are mostly true, he finally lays down another heretical bombshell.

He will have a covenant with Israel and crush its enemies. But Israel must be hated by the nations in order for this to happen. Is this what the mainstream media is playing into at the current time?

Another typical futurist lie based on a misinterpretation of the Book of Daniel, Chapter 9, verse 26-27, where it’s supposedly talking about an anti-Christ figure making a seven-year peace treaty with Israel and it’s Islamic neighbours. In reality, this portion of Daniel is talking about Jesus confirming the New Covenant with all who would believe. The time period in which Jesus was prophesied to confirm this was seven years—the final week of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks.

Makow, or Glover, introduce the article with a couple of passages from the Old Testament:

Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup, one that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

—Zechariah 12:2-3

The Orthodox Christian interpretation of these two passages is that they were fulfilled in 70 A.D., when Rome—an empire of many nations, the world as such—encompassed Jerusalem with a siege, slaughtered one million Jews (according to Josephus), looted and burnt the Temple, and left Jerusalem utterly desolate, as Jesus said would happen.

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate : and I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. —Luke 13:35

This effectively and permanently ended the Jewish age of history. Any chance for the Jews to receive salvation now lies with their acceptance of Christ. Israel as a nation is now no longer needed, as the bigger picture, as was intended from the beginning, is that all peoples, from all nations would come to the truth.

The only sense in the “world turning against Israel” is with respect to the Church, which is the true Israel of God. That certainly is and will continue to happen, which will hasten the real end times. And Israel, as we know it, will likely not even exist in the end times, although Jerusalem will likely by the capital of some New Age one-world government. But what Glover is advancing is fundamentally Zionist, despite his seeming distaste with “Zionist-Kabbalists”.

 

Ted Pike brings in Zionism through the back door

Ted Pike ZionistBy Timothy Fitzpatrick

Before I begin this brief critique of so-called truth teller Reverend Ted Pike, I want to redefine the definition of Zionism to something I feel is more accurate.

Zionism: the belief that God has set aside a tract of land in the Middle East for ethnic Jews for all eternity as long as they are obedient.

Ted Pike, a well known “anti-Zionist” in the anti-Zionist community, is actually perpetuating the Zionist myth, although in a subtler manner, through his “Bible studies” at his website TruthTellers and in his documentary videos, specifically The Other Israel and Zionism and Christianity: Unholy Alliance. With titles like these, you would think there would be no hint of Zionism in his teachings on Bible prophecy, but, unfortunately, this is not the case. And with his campaign against the Babylonian Talmud and Jewish ADL-sponsored hate laws, his anti-Zionism appears even more legitimate.

Pike a premillennialist Zionist

Give even a casual look at the roots of Christian Zionism and you will inevitably encounter a prophetical teaching known as premillennial dispensationalism. Many evangelical Christians and Protestants the world over adhere to this heretical school of thought, which is driving the end times delusion and the massacre by Israel of almost all of its neighbours, especially the Palestinians. What may surprise subscribers of Pike is that while he is not a dispensational believer—which, in this context, basically teaches that Jews are saved under their own Mosaic covenant (the law)—he does believe in premillennialism, which teaches that the Seventy Weeks Messianic prophecy in the Book of Daniel, the millennial reign of Christ, and the redemption of the Jews have not yet taken place. Some may argue that one can be anti-Zionist and premillennialist simultaneously, but, as Pike demonstrates in his confused prophetic world, it’s pretty much impossible. Pike claims a “remnant” of Jews will be saved in the future end times and will re-obtain the land, even though there was already a remnant of Jews saved in the time of Jesus, the apostles, and at the 70 AD destruction of Jerusalem. I guess he doesn’t think Jesus’ redemptive work at His first coming was good enough to save all who would believe, so Jesus must come a second time redeem the Jews separately, at which point Jesus supposedly sets up an Earthly Zionist kingdom for 1,000 years. This is not taught in the Bible. It is a Jewish-centric heresy based on exclusivism—an exclusivism taught only in the unholy Babylonian Talmud and Kabbalah. To Bible scholars, this heresy is known as postponement theory—a sort of postponed Zionism.

Pseudo anti-Zionism

A word about anti-Zionists in general. Orthodox Jewish “anti-Zionists” are only anti-Zionist in the sense that, if Jews are disobedient to God, they do not obtain the right to dwell in Israel. So, these anti-Zionist Jews are actually Zionists, according to my definition above. They do believe that Jews would have a right to dwell in Israel, just as long as they are obedient. In other words, they are only anti-Zionist while the Jews are disobedient. Pike basically echoes these same pseudo-anti-Zionist beliefs. So, Pike, too, is a Zionist and believes the Jews will return to the land when Jesus supposedly comes a second time to redeem only the special Jews and rapture everyone else. The redemptive work of Christ on the cross is not enough for Pike and his Jewish gods. No, Christ must come again, merely for the sake of the special Jews, who rejected and crucified Him.

Universalism or Zionism?

The Bible, as well as the Early Church for 1,500-plus years, has taught that Old Testament Zionism was a temporal means to an end and, in and of itself, was never the intention of God from the beginning. It was to be a mere model of the true Zion, which was to be the entire world in obedience to God and the entire Earth as the land for believers in Christ Jesus. This is where we get the word “Catholic.” It means universalism, not exclusivism as the Zionists preach. This universalism, not to be confused with the secular definition of the term, has been taught by the Early Church onwards through the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. It wasn’t until Illuminist Jews and Freemasons wised up and distorted Bible prophecy that we were propagandized with this premillennial Zionist teaching. That and a twisting of Daniels 70-weeks prophecy has confused the good majority of American Christians and resulted in their unwavering support of Israel and Jews. It has also robbed them of enjoying the blessings from living under the millennial reign of our Lord Jesus Christ, who ascended to His throne almost 2,000 years ago. Premillennialists like Pike would have you believe that Jesus hasn’t ascended to His Throne yet. Pike can only conclude that Jesus is waiting in limbo somehwere.

Pike’s hyper Preterist strawman

Pike attempts to justify his false prophecy by putting all alternative views to premillennialism into the tiny box of hyper, or full, preterism. Full preterism is a heretical prophetical view that teaches that absolutely all Bible prophecy has been fulfilled. Without getting too technical, the Early Church’s prophetical teaching has always been more of a partial-preterist or historical view, which basically means that the majority of Bible prophecy has been fulfilled, especially the crucial Seventy Weeks Prophecy. Partial preterism and historicism are very different from hyper preterism, but that doesn’t matter to Pike; he is setting up a strawman. It also allows Pike to endorse the Judeo-Masonic inspired Seventy Week gap theory. Pike and his evangelical Zionist cohorts, including John Hagee, twist the Book of Daniel so that the final 70th week is separated (for no Biblical or logical reason) from the preceding 69 weeks, and tosses into the future so that Jews can be elevated again to godhood. I shall soon post a comprehensive article on the 70 Weeks deception and how it is based in a Rabbinical command to deceive Christians.

Ted Pike’s rabbinical connection

In 2006, author Michael Hoffman alerted his readers to Ted Pike’s connection with Orthodox Jewish rabbi Daniel Lapin. Hoffman points out Pike’s compromise in supporting Lapin merely because he is a perceived cultural conservative and the false belief that it’s only leftist or secular Jews that are out to get us. He illustrates how this Jewish dualism plays both liberals and conservatives alike in a sort Hegelian dialectic. Hoffman writes,

Orthodox Judaics have positioned themselves on both sides of the issue. Orthodox Judaic Foxman represents the Leftist ideal of secularism, while Orthodox Judaic Lapin is seen to attack Foxman in public, while offering support for the Right. To penetrate and overthrow this dialectic, we must anticipate the ultimate synthesis toward which this rabbinic chess game is oriented.

Part of Pike’s response to Hoffman reads,

One of the most powerful tools for awakening the church and nation was provided by Rabbi Daniel Lapin of ‘Toward Tradition,’ a politically conservative, orthodox Jewish organization in Seattle…Actually, Rabbi Lapin’s persistent admonitions to American Jews to deeply appreciate America and its Christian culture fulfill God’s command to exiled Jews to seek the peace and welfare of the nations in which they dwell (Jer. 29:4).

hopeofisraelPike is insinuating the heresy that a remnant shall be saved in the future and bring all Jews back into Israel while endorsing an Orthodox Jewish Rabbi, who is under the curse of the Babylonian Talmud and Kabbalah. Pike has been duped. The idea that a remnant of Jews will be saved, as described in the Book of Romans, in the future, is another postponed Zionism heresy. James B. Jordan wrote a brilliant piece shattering this myth, The late author Phillip Mauro wrote extensively on the lies of postponement theory, especially in The Hope of Israel.

A call to repentance

This post is not meant as a personal attack on Ted Pike. He appears to be sincere in his convictions, as heretical and confusing as they are. I hope this post will alert subscribers of Pike as well as Pike himself to the anti-Christ nature of his prophetical views.
