Word Study from the Scriptures
The word listed in the Greek of the Strong's Lexicon* under number 2453 having been translated J-e-w by the early translators causes more confusion than any other word in the Bible. The word J-e-w (plural J-e-w-s) is so translated in the New Testament some 187 times in the majority of our English translations. The word J-e-w, however, is a generic or made-up term that should not be in the Bible at all, and I shall prove that fact in this study.
The word (Strong's 2453), in its original languages, means that one is either from the one tribe of Judah or that one is a resident of Judea. And a resident of Judea might be a person of any race or religion. One would simply have to live in the area of Judea to be a Judean. A true Judahite would have to be born from the seed-line of the Patriarch Judah, just as the Lord Jesus Christ was.
If the early translators had transliterated Strong's 2453, that is, if they had exchanged each letter of the Greek word into its equivalent English letter, the word would have looked like this: Ioudaios, which is eight letters, not three like J-e-w. Many words have simply been transliterated in the Bible, causing their actual meanings to be confused. Such is Strong's Greek word number 32, angelos. Number 32 is transliterated into the English as angel. The word angel, however, gives us no information as to the actual meaning of the word. The word means messenger. The messenger can be from God—or from Satan. And too, the messenger can be a human one. John the Baptiser is called a messenger (Strong's 32) by Jesus in Matthew 11.10. And Paul calls himself a messenger (Strong's 32) from God in Galatians 4.14. II Corinthians 11.7 mentions a messenger (Strong's 32) sent by Satan. The shameful transliteration of angelos (Strong's 32) has caused much of the mysticism regarding Divine Messengers. With the following examples we shall prove the inconsistencies which translators have made in translating and transliterating words in our Bibles. Remember, a consistent method is essential for a good translation. Linguists call such a translation a concordant one. Take the English word Hebrew or Hebrews (Strong's 1445). The transliteration is as follows for the singular and plural:
Transliteration: Hebraios Hebraioi
English Bibles: Hebrew Hebrews
Take the word Israel (Strg. 2474) and Israelite (Strg. 2475):
Transliteration: Israel Israelites
English Bibles: Israel Israelite
Another clear case of pure transliteration is found in the word Judea (Strg. 2449):
English Bibles: Judaea or Judea
Yet notice what translators have done with the word Ioudaios (Strg. 2453), which means either Judahite or Judean, according to its particular context:
Greek Transliteration: Ioudaios Ioudaioi
English Bibles: Jew Jews
Translators have taken it upon themselves to translate or transliterate at their leisure, aiding Satan's great deception by convincing people that those who today call themselves "Jews" are actually of the same seed-line as the Lord Jesus Christ. But what should we think of the people who claim to be Israelites, yet do not accept Jesus as God and Saviour of the Universe? Should we believe their claims? The Apostle John settles that question for us in 1 John 2.22-23:
A liar is one who denies that Jesus is the Christ. The liar—the one who denies the Father and the Son—has the character of the Antichrist! 2.23. Everyone who denies the Son cannot have the Father. The one who acknowledges the Son also has the Father!
When studying the Scriptures, the above verses should be a foundation stone concerning what and whom we believe. And when commentators and translators disregard these verses by taking the word of "liars," such as the ones who claim descent from the tribes of Israel, yet reject Christ—and are indeed His most virulent adversaries—we must reject the places in their commentaries and translations where they have believed these "liars"!
Over the centuries the ever-evolving English language, has added letters and spellings that have varied greatly since the Authorised Version of the King James Bible appeared in 1611. At that time Strg. 2453 was spelled Iewe (plural Iewes) instead of J-e-w or J-e-w-s. The Lord's name was spelled Iesus instead of Jesus. John was Iohn; the river Jordan was Iordane; Judea was Iudea. (Obviously the English letter J was not in use at the time.) And spellings of other words have changed too. For example, the words up and upon were spelled vp and vpon; the word dove was doue; Thessalonians was Theffalonians; delusion was delufion; strange was ftrange; even was euen; believe was beleeue; Jehoshaphat was Iehofhaphat. Translators neither translated Strong's Greek number 2453 nor transliterated it. The word J-e-w (which evolved over the centuries into its modern spelling) translators placed into the Bible because a people exist who call themselves by that name—and they claim that the word encompasses all twelve tribes of Israel. But where is the Scriptural authority to make the word J-e-w a synonymous term for all the tribes of Israel? Obviously, no Scriptural authority exists which gives us the right to use the word J-e-w as an all-encompassing term for all the seed-line of Israel.
But you might think that the doctrine came from one of the people who called himself an Israelite. He was an early “historian,” and he was not a Christian. In fact he was a Pharisee! His name was Josephus. And he began the false doctrine which claims that the one word that means either Judahite or Judean should be used for all twelve tribes of Israel (Josephus, Ant. xi, 5-6), today translated/interpreted J-e-w. And although Jesus, John, Luke, and Paul always make a sharp distinction between Israel and the Judean scribes and Pharisees “who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets (I Thessalonians 2.15),” traditional Christendom has accepted Josephus’s word without questioning it in the least. And this fact remains true even though some scholars such as McClintock and Strong have noted that the word originally covered only the tribe of Judah, and that it was Josephus who invented the idea of having the word cover all the tribes (pg. 905 Vol. IV, McClintock & Strong Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, & Ecclesiastical Literature).
So the Hebrew and Greek word can neither be properly translated nor transliterated into the word today spelled J-e-w. It is a deception and Yet, although the Apostle John clearly warned us that "anyone who does not accept Jesus as the Christ is a liar," most translators, commentators, Bible historians, preachers, and traditional Christians believe the people who make the claim that the word J-e-w is a term which does indeed encompass all the tribes!
Our conclusion is that we should never use the word J-e-w except when quoting someone who has used it! And then we are better off calling it the "J-word." For it is unquestionably a major part of Satan's deception, and none of us should aid him in it! What Satan managed to do with the J-word was rather ingenious to say the least. He realised that he could not have the word transliterated, which according to consistency would also properly translate it into Judean or Judahite. If his translators had done that, the average Bible students' antennae would have immediately shot up! They would have asked, If one is from the tribe of Judah and the other simply a resident of Judea, then who and where are the other eleven tribes? So Satan invented a generic term for the world of Judeo-Christianity to use, where the word “Jew” has thus so easily slithered into our English translations.
And how can translators reconcile translating the verb Ioudaidzo (Strg. 2450) with "to live as do the Jews," as the King James translators did in Galatians 2.14? The verb Ioudaidzo (Strg. 2450) means "to take up the laws of the Judean Scribes and Pharisees." And when the word is transliterated into the English word Judaize by later translators, we might ask how they can transliterate Ioudaidzo (Strg. 2450) in Galatians 2.14, and in the same verse translate Ioudaios (Strg. 2453) with the word J-e-w! A consistent translation requires both words either to be translated or transliterated.
following is what several historians, linguists, and religious authors have to
say about "Judaism" and its origins and who the people are today who
call themselves “J-e-w-s”:
was not evolved from Judah; it was in Babylon that Judaism first became that
which it was and still is."
conclude that, "The
distinction between Israel and Judah can best be expressed in the phrase,
which may sound paradoxical, but yet aptly characterises the true relationship
of the two people: The Israelites were not Jews!" (Harmsworth,
History Of The World. Vol. 1,
speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a Jew or to call a
contemporary Jew an Israelite or Hebrew.”
(Jewish Almanac, 1980)
The absurdity of using the generic term J-e-w instead of Judahite or Judean, to represent collectively both those born from the tribe of Judah and those who are residents of Judea is easily seen in the following example: The Greek word translated J-e-w in most Bibles is Ioudaios (which is derived from Strg. Greek 2455, Ioudas, English Judah). And the main Hebrew word is Yehudiy, Strg. Hebrew 3064 (which is derived from Strg. Hebrew 3063, Yehudah, English Judah). Both base words are the terms for the patron of the tribe of Judah. But instead of being called Judahites, we are to believe that Judah's offspring are J-e-w-s. If that translation is proper, then in order to be consistent, the offspring of the tribe of Ephraim, instead of becoming Ephraimites, should become Eews! Benjamin's offspring should be known as Bews instead of Benjamites! Instead of Levites, Levi's offspring should become Lews! Simeon's children would become Sews instead of Simeonites! And Zebulunites would become Zews! Make any sense? Well, that is exactly that which has taken place in our English Bibles.
Yet, as ridiculous as it would be to call a Benjamite a "Bew," it is no more ridiculous than the fact that most translators, commentators, and Bible historians tell us that the word J-e-w circumscribes all twelve tribes! We might also ask why Judah (Strg. Hebrew 3063), which is first used in Genesis 29.35, is not translated J-e-w. If his offspring are to be J-e-w-s, then it should follow that his name would have been J-e-w. But if that had been done, Satan could not have used the word J-e-w to represent all twelve tribes! Every Bible student would have known that the word J-e-w represented only one tribe; and then Satan would have had to invent another word to represent all twelve tribes.
Below are the Scriptures where Strg. 2453 is used in the N.T. It is properly translated with the words Judahite or Judean. Remember! A Judahite is a person who is a member of the one tribe of Judah by birth. Therefore, when the word Judean is used, it simply means that one is a resident of Judea or is from the land of Judea, and the word has absolutely no implication as to what race the person is.
Most of the time, however, the people addressed in the Bible as Judeans are not true Judahites! That is, they are not actually from any of the tribes of Israel by birth. They are an admixture of most all the races, just as Luke tells us in Acts 2.5 & 10-22 where he informs us that there are people among the Judeans from “every race under the sky.”
Take the time to go through the Bible that you read the most and scratch through the word J-e-w or J-e-w-s, and replace it with either Judahite or Judean! Do it and you will extinguish Satan's fiery darts of confusion. Read your Bible in this light and see the difference and note the clarity and constant flow of thought.
Matthew: The word in the following verses should be translated Judahites: 2.2; 27.11; 27.29; 27.37. In this one verse it should be Judeans: 28.15.
Mark: Judahites in 7.3; 15.2,9,12,18,26.
Luke: Judahites in 7.3; 23.3,37,38,51.
John: Judean in 5.1; 7.2; 11.55. Judeans in these verses except where the word is used more than one time in a particular verse and then the proper translation is thus set off in parenthesis: 1.19; 2.6,13,18,20; 3.25; 4.9 (twice in this order: Judean & Judeans); 5.10,15,16,18; 6.41,52; 7.1,11, 13,15,35; 8.22,31,48,52,57; 9.18,22 (Judeans twice); 10.19,24,31, 10.33; 11.8,54; 12.9; 13.33; 18.12,14,20,31,36,38; 19.7,12,14,20,21 (three times in this order: Judeans, Judahites, & Judahites), 19.31, 19.38, 19.42, 20.19.
Judahite in John 18.35.
Judahites in 3.1; 4.22 (The proper translation of the last phrase of this verse is "because Salvation originates from the Judahites"; the phrase refers to Christ who came from the tribe of Judah), 6.4; 11.19,31,33,36,45; 12.11; 18.33,39, 19.3,19,40.
Acts: Judean in 13.6; 19.14; 24.24 (it is feminine here, but Judean is fine), 24.27.
Judeans in 2.5,10; 9.22,23; 10.39; 12.3,11; 13.45,50; 14.2,4,5,19; 16.3; 17.1,5,10,13,17; 18.5,12, 18.14 (twice); 19.13,33; 20.3,19; 21.11,27; 22.30; 23.12,20,27,30; 24.9,18; 25.2,7,8,9,10,15,24; 26.2,3,4,7,21; 28.19.
Judahite in 10.28; 16.1 (feminine), 18.2 (twice, Judahite & Judeans), 18.24; 19.34; 22.3.
Judahites in 13.5,42,43; 14.1 (twice); 16.28; 18.4,19,28; 19.10, 17; 20.21; 21.21; 22.12; 24.5; 28.17,29.
In Acts 10.22, in the King James Bible the phrase "among all the nation of Jews" should be translated "all the races among the Judeans." This phrase without a doubt proves that there were many races of people among the Judeans. In Acts 21.39 Judahite. In Romans 11.1 Paul tells us he is from the tribe of Benjamin, and then see I Corinthians 9.20 where he states that he "became as a Judahite to please the Judeans, in order to benefit the Judahites."
Romans: Judahite in 1.16; 2.9,10,16,28,29; 3.1; 10.12.
Judahites in 3.9,29; 9.24.
I Corinthians: Judeans in 1.22; 10.32. Judahites in 1.23; 12.13.
In I Corinthians 9.20 the verse should read, "And I became as a Judahite to the Judeans, that I might benefit Judahites."
II Corinthians: Judeans in 11.24. By beginning to read where the subject starts at II Cor. 11.19, it is obvious that in this verse Paul did not accept the people whom he called Judeans as either Israelites or Hebrews.
Galatians: Judeans in Galatians 2.13. Judahite in 3.28. Judahites in 2.15. In 2.14 the word is used three times in this order: Judahite, Judeans, & Judeans.
Colossians: Judahite in 3.11.
I Thessalonians: Judeans in 2.14. This is one of the most important verses in the Scriptures, informing us as to who killed our Lord, the Prophets, and what their fate is. Read it and think of what the future brings for these hybrid offspring of Satan. And rejoice!
I Thessalonians 2.14-16:
For you, brothers, became imitators of the Ever-Living’s Assemblies at Judea, those who are in union with Christ Jesus, because you certainly suffered the same persecutions by your own people, just as they certainly suffered persecutions by the Judeans, who indeed killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and brutally persecute us. Certainly God is displeased with them. And being hostile toward all mankind, so as to fill their sins to the limit at all times, they try to stop us from telling the races that they can be saved. But God’s wrath will come on them at the end!
Revelation: Judahites in 2.9 & 3.9.
In the Old Testament it is better to use Judean (singular) and Judeans (plural) in every place that Strg. Hebrew 3062, 3064, and 3066 are used, because when the Hebrew wants to specify that people are from the tribe of Judah it will use a phrase such as "the men of Judah," which, for example, is found in Jeremiah 43.9. There are only a couple of exceptions, and they’re marked. Below are the Scriptures where you should place either Judean or Judeans:
II Kings: 16.6; 18.26,28; 25.25.
II Chronicles: 32.18.
Ezra: 4.12,23; 5.1,5; 6.7,8,14.
Nehemiah: 1.2; 2.16; 4.1,2,12; 5.17.
5.1,8; 6.6; 13.23,24: Judahites.
Esther: 2.5; 3.4,6,10,13; 4.3,7,13,14,16; 5.13; 6.10,13, 8.1,3,5,7,8,9,11, 13,16,17, 9.1,2,3,5,6,10,12,13,15,16,18,19,20,22, 23,24,25,27,28,29,30,31; 10.3.
Jeremiah: 32.12; 34.9; 38.19; 40.11,12,15; 41.3; 44.1; 52.28,30.
The lesson we should learn from this study is that we must all search the Scriptures regularly and prayerfully, allowing our Lord's Spirit to guide us—never receiving a tradition as truth! Thus we must follow the orders which the Lord gave to the Judean Scribes and Pharisees in John 5.39: Search the Scriptures, because you think them to contain ever-existing life. Indeed, they testify about Me! The Judahites at Berea did just that very thing when Paul and Silas presented the Message to them in Acts 17. Notice their actions in the following passage:
Acts 17.10-11 So the brothers at once sent both Paul and Silas to Berea during the night, and after their arrival they went into the Judean synagogue. But these were racially pure—not like those at Thessalonika! So they accepted the Message, being in an impassioned state concerning It—daily examining the Scriptures in order to verify the teachings.
Follow the examples set forth for us in the Scriptures. Never use the J-word except when quoting someone! Never receive anything as truth from anyone who does not accept Jesus as the Christ! Never accept anything about the Scriptures from people who believe anything that the "liars" claim. Then, the Ever-Living will gush forth blessings upon your Spirit—for the ageless ages! As stated above, make the following Scriptures your foundation for deciding whether you can believe someone or whether you must doubt all he says:
A liar is the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ!
The liar—the one who denies the Father and the Son—has the
character of the Antichrist!
2.23. Everyone who denies the Son cannot have the Father. The one who acknowledges the Son also has the Father!
people meet the requirements in the above Scriptures, then give them the
benefit of not doubting them. If
they do not, doubt them immediately regardless of from whom they may claim
*Strong’s Lexicon: In this study, I have used the numbering system set up by James Strong in his 19th century lexicon and concordance. This numbering system allows English readers to look up and study both Hebrew and Greek words which they could not otherwise find because of the language difference. Strong’s is not, however, to be used to translate, for as a rule it gives only general definitions. Proper translation can only be carried out by specific methods, by the study of words and phrases in their specific and general contexts, by the study of the particular author and his normal usage of the word or phrase, by the word or phrase’s extra biblical usage, and etc.
· A SEMITE (or "Shemite") is someone descended from Shem, one of the sons of Noah.
· A HEBREW (or "Eber") is someone descended from Heber one of the great-grandsons of Shem. So all Hebrews are Semites, but not all Semites are Hebrews.
Six generations after Heber, Abraham was born to his line, so Abraham was both a Hebrew and a Semite, born of the line of Heber and Shem. Isaac was born of Abraham, then Jacob of Isaac. Jacob's name was changed to "Israel," and he fathered 12 sons. His sons and their descendants are called Israelites, and they would be both Semitic and Hebrew. Many non-Israelites were called “Jews” (Judahites, Judeans) simply because they lived in Judah or claimed to follow the religion of the Judeans. The self-styled or so-called "Jews" of Judaism today are not, nor ever have been Israelites, Hebrews or Semites but rather Chazars (Turkish Mongol Huns). There is a veritable mountain of evidence, even from Jewish sources that clearly confirms the Jews non-Semitic heritage.

nation, and their country was called by the Greeks and Romans 'Idumea' (Mark

York Times article Reveals that European-Descended Jews are Counterfeits and
have no Blood line to Abraham!
The fact that most of those who call themselves Jews are not Jews (Rev. 2:9) and have no claim to the lands of Palestine because they have no genetic relation to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob can no longer be suppressed. The October 29, 1996 N.Y. Times, in an article entitled, "Scholars Debate Origins of Yiddish and the Migrations of Jews," states:
"Arching over these questions is the central mystery of just where the Jews of Eastern Europe came from. Many historians believe that there were not nearly enough Jews in Western Europe to account for the huge population that later flourished in Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine and nearby areas.
"By reconstructing the Yiddish mother tongue, linguists hope to plot the migration of the Jews and their language with a precision never possible before.
"It has even been suggested, on the basis of linguistic evidence, that the Jews of Eastern Europe were not predominantly part of the Diaspora from the Middle East, but were members of another ethnic group that adopted Judaism.
"...One linguist has recently argued that Yiddish began as a Slavic language that was 'relexified,' with most of its vocabulary replaced with German words.
"...Even more troublesome are demographic studies indicating that during the Middle Ages there were no more than 25,000 to 35,000 Jews in Western Europe. These figures are hard to reconcile with other studies showing that by the 17th century there were hundreds of thousands of Jews in Eastern Europe.
"...Some scholars believe the roots of Yiddish, and even the Ashkenazi people themselves, lie much farther east. In his 1976 book, “The Thirteenth Tribe,” Arthur Koestler made the startling suggestion, never taken seriously by linguists, that the Eastern European Jews were not really Semitic -- that they were largely descended from the Turkish Chazars, who converted en masse to Judaism in medieval times.
"More recently, Koestler's controversial thesis has been revived and expanded in a 1993 book, The Ashkenazic 'Jews': A Slavo-Turkic People in Search of a Jewish Identity (Slavica Publishers), by Dr. Paul Wexler, a Tel Aviv University linguist.
"Wexler uses a reconstruction of Yiddish to argue that it began as a Slavic language whose vocabulary was largely replaced with German words. Going even further, he contends that the AshkeNAZI Jews are predominantly converted Slavs and Turks who merged with a tiny population of Palestinian Jews from the Diaspora."
are the 4 verses in the Bible containing the word "antichrist."
”Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”
Note:- Antichrists, - Plural, More than a singular antichrist!
”Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”
Question? Do the Jews of today deny the Son of GOD?
Answer: - Yes!
”And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
Question? Do the Jews deny that Christ, the Messiah, has come in the flesh?
2nd John 1:7
”For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess (acknowledge) not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”
Question? Do the Jews acknowledge that Jesus Christ, Jesus Messiah or the Messiah, has come in the flesh?
the apostles were expecting the return of Jesus Christ in a relatively short
time period. From their letters you can see they thought it would occur in the
lifetime of most of their readers. They
therefore expected the antichrist even sooner!! The description of the
antichrist in John's letters describe a person or
already present in the world AT THAT TIME!
foremost opposition to the Gospel in the days of the Apostles are the same
group which are the main opposition to Jesus Christ today.
Jewish Hatred Against Jesus Christ
Was there an organized Jewish conspiracy against the life and ministry of our Saviour - the Lord Jesus Christ?
the Scriptures speak for themselves!
. . of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own
prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are
contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that
they might be saved, to fill up their sin alway: For the wrath is
come upon them to the uttermost."
In the earthly life and ministry of our Lord, He encountered much opposition as He travelled throughout the ancient land of Palestine in doing the work that His Father sent Him to do. During the first century the land of Palestine where Jesus lived and ministered was divided into three Roman provinces. They were Galilee to the north where Jesus lived as a child and began His ministry; Samaria located in central Palestine where He ministered to the woman at the well in John chapter 4; and Judea to the south where He encountered most of His opposition from the leadership of the Jewish nation and was eventually illegally tried, falsely convicted and crucified as a result of the scheming efforts of the Jews and their manipulation of the Roman civil authorities.
In the Gospel of John the Apostle records the masterful discourse of Jesus that He gave concerning His equality with God and His manifestation as being the living bread sent down from heaven (chapters 5-6). After giving this discourse and seeing the open anger of the Jews in response to His message, He left Judea where Jewish Pharisaism was in total control, and returned to Galilee, which offered Him more personal safety. John records:
The Jewish leadership, which included Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, Chief Priests and the Sanhedrin heckled and taunted the Lord Jesus as He conducted His teaching and healing ministry among the people. Their purpose was to catch Him in heresy and blasphemy and eventually use it as evidence against Him at His trial (Luke 20:19-26).
of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets,
and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to
all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be

to the uttermost."

It contains discussions concerning every aspect of Jewish life and

on the Book of Jude
Lord's half brother, Jude, whose actual Israelite name is Yuda, has written an
importunate letter for Christians of all eras. Rather than consoling us
about the Lord's saving works, he is urgently warning us about the impostors
who live among us, eat with us, work along side us, marry into our families,
rule over us in our government and courts, and always claim to be on our side
- yet are really our mortal enemies.
Just as Jude was, almost all the early Christians were Israelites or Judahites, as were all the original Apostles; and it is the true House of Israel that brought the world the Christ-Message, and a small remnant continues doing so today. That remnant listens to God's warnings, while the rest of the true House of Israel sleeps a deep sleep that their enemy placed on them through 2000 years of brainwashing. It shall remain thus until the Lord's Return!
Jude informs us quickly that these impostors reject the Lord Jesus as the Sovereign God and Saviour. That's the first indication of who these impostors are. So now ask yourself, Which race is famous for that?
Toward Jude's goal of writing an importunate warning, he has left us with a powerful and informative letter - one that should make all believers sit up and take a more thorough view of their surroundings.
Most of the Christian world, however, has not paid any attention to these warnings, and so, worship the Christ-haters instead of the Christ. Most Christians today are content to accept their particular denominations' modified form of salivation (and with it all its ritual stipulations), and willingly ignore the hundreds of warnings about their common enemy - and so because of that, don't even recognize who their enemy is.
Jude has left us many keys and tip-offs as to exactly who these impostors are. One we find in the word I've translated "impious," a word Jude uses a total of six times in his short letter. It has the equivalent meaning to a Hebrew word used way back in Deuteronomy, and it means in that context someone who knows there's a God, yet has no respect or regard for Him or His teachings.
God uses the word in that sense when informing Moses what He's going to do to our people because of their lack of faith in Him and their desertion from Him. Succinctly, He says He's going to turn this impious race loose on us as our punishment - He will make them powerful and us powerless.
Don't think that hasn't happened. For no matter what part of the world you live in these impostors control most of your government, its laws, it court decisions, and its foreign policies. They control the value of your money through the Federal Reserve Bank. They also strongly affect the ways your ministers teach about Christ and Who He is, because most of our people believe their blasphemous claim that they come from the same genetic seed-line as Moses, Jakob, king David, our Lord, and all the Divine Couriers!
Don't let any preacher or any person tell you that He's taken that curse of punishment off of us in "this age of grace" - by means of the Cross or otherwise! He's not retracted that punishment! For it is grace to us that God is punishing us. God punishes only those He loves!
But irrespective of how this punishment affects us and our lives and the people and world around us, it is our duty to take the Scriptural warnings regarding these impostors seriously, and not allow them to pull us away from our true heritage and from our Lord and God, Jesus Christ.
So take note of every trait that Jude tells you about these beasts, for they are wily and subtle in their deceit, and we need all the help we can get to stay clear of their slanderous lies and satanic doctrines.
Notice what the Lord says to Moses concerning what He will do to our people for their apostasies; and notice His use of the word I've translated "impious":
20. And the Ever-Living exclaimed: "I shall hide My face from them - I shall see how they windup - For they are *a corrupt race - sons who have no faith!
They provoked Me with a counterfeit god - They made Me furious with their
vanities - So then I shall provoke them with a counterfeit race! I shall make
them furious by means of an impious race.
*a corrupt race with no faith!: This is what God says about our people! Notice the definite difference between the two races mentioned here - one is corrupt and has no faith in their Redeemer even though He's shown them much favour; the other knows He exists, yet has no respect or regard for Him, which is exactly like their progenitors Satan and Kain. The former race He still loves and thus punishes; the latter race He has no feeling for and only uses them as whips on the backs of His people.
*a counterfeit race/an impious race: Notice the two words modifying the word race: they are counterfeit (fakes) in the sense that they claim to be a race that they are not; and they are impious because they have no respect for our God - they work night and day trying to pervert every good thing He's done.
These are the same impious impostors who during the Lord's time went by the titles Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes, and Scripture Lawyers, and who persecuted the Lord at every turn, eventually murdered Him, then continued their evil work by terrorizing the Divine Couriers and eventually murdered all of them. Today they continue to be the race that causes divisions among our people, just as Jude informs us in verse 19.
Jude's message is that they live among us today! They haven't gone anywhere! They're still here among us as you read! And although he does not say to rid ourselves of them, we are still to beware of them - to realize who they are, and to avoid following their evil teachings. To do that you must know them, their teachings, and their character traits.
As a last point on exactly who these people are, Jude notes in verse four that these impostors deny the Lord Jesus - so as you read this letter ask yourself, What one singular race is both adamant about denying the Lord and is also famous for it?
The following is a fresh translation from the most recent edition of the Majority Text.
Jude's Letter to the Called, Separated, and Preserved
Jude, a slave belonging to Jesus Christ, and a brother of James, to those called out, separated by God our Father, and preserved by Jesus Christ:
2. Compassion, peace, and love be increased to you!
Purpose of the Letter
3. Loved-Ones, having been in the process of making every effort to write to you about the common salvation, I received a need to write to you urging you to fight diligently for the faith which has been delivered once and for all to the Separated-Ones.
4. For certain people have sneaked in among you, the ones who were written about long ago for the purpose of the following condemnation: impious people attempting to pervert the grace granted to us by the Ever-Living into unrestrained lawlessness - even denying the only Sovereign-Lord God, indeed our Lord Jesus Christ.
Three Examples from the Old Testament Serve as Warnings
5. Now I want to remind you, your having once understood the following things: that the Lord delivered a people out of the land of Egypt; secondly, He destroyed those not believing.
6. And also those fallen-angels who did not stay in their realm of rule, but on the contrary, having deserted their own residence, He has held them under darkness in eternal chains, for the purpose of punishing them on the Great Day He returns.
7. In a similar manner to the fallen-angels, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them indulged in unnatural passions - even having chased after the same sex - they are displayed before all as a fiery, ever-existing warning. They are undergoing a judicial sentence.
The Three Sins of the Impious
8. In spite of these warnings, in the same way these self-deluders also certainly defile the flesh, and reject our authority, and slander honourable Christians.
How Michael Handles Satan
9. But Michael the archangel, when disputing with the devil - he argued about the body of Moses - he dared not bring a slanderous verdict against him, but instead, said: "The Lord rebuke you!"
The Impious Understand the Physical Not the Spiritual
10. But what things they do not comprehend, they slander. And what things they understand physically - like unreasoning animals - they are corrupted by these things.
Doom to and of the Impious
11. Extreme anguish to them, because they travelled the way Kain went, and poured themselves out to the same deceit Balaam committed for money, and perished at the rebellion Korah led against Moses!
Jude's Graphic Description of the Impostors
12. These people are hidden reefs dining with you in your love-feasts, irreverently gorging themselves. They are empty clouds blown about by various winds. They are late-autumn trees - barren, doubly decayed, plucked up by their roots.
13. They are wild sea waves foaming up their shameful deeds. They are wandering stars for whom the darkest blackness has been preserved for a certain age.
The Previously Predicted Doom of the Impious
14. And Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these too, declaring, "Pay attention: the Lord is coming with His separated myriads, to carry out judgment upon everyone,
15. and to convict all the impious people for all of their impious deeds which they impiously committed, and for all the harsh things the impious sinners spoke against Him."
Further Description of the Impious
16. These people are complainers, faultfinders, walking according to their own lusts. Also, their mouth speaks arrogant words, faking flatteries on you for gain.
Orders to Keep Previous Warnings in Mind
17. But you, loved ones, keep in mind the teachings which were foretold by the Couriers sent by our Lord Jesus Christ, because they continually informed you of the following:
18. that in the last period scoffers will exist, walking according to their own impious lusts.
Final Description of the Deceivers
19. These people are the ones who cause divisions - animals - not having a soul.
Jude's Final Orders to Christians
20. But you, loved ones, edifying yourselves by means of your separated faith, praying in a separated spirit, you must keep yourselves in union with the love which comes from God,
21. eagerly awaiting the compassion which comes from our Lord Jesus Christ and that carries us into ever-existing life.
It's Your Decision Whom to Show Mercy Upon
22. So indeed have compassion upon some, distinguishing for yourselves which ones.
23. And respectfully deliver others, snatching them out of the fire, hating even the garment which has been stained by the carnal.
24. Now to Him having the ability to keep us from stumbling, and to stand us unblemished in a state of jubilation before His Glorious Face;
25. to the only wise God - Who is our Saviour: Honour and Majesty, Sovereignty and Authority, certainly at this time and for all the ages! Amen.

Jewish Zionism today, constitutes the last blatant racist ideology still
surviving, with the state of Israel the last outpost of real
"Apartheid" in the World. Israel
constitutes by its mere existence a complete defiance to all international
laws, rules and principles, and the open racism manifested in the Jewish State
is a clear violation of all decent ethics and morals known to Man. The
so-called "Holy Land" has been a nation by default, scourged by
blood and fire ever since the degenerate politics of Pharisaic Judaism first
blazed its bloody trail in 1948. There has been no peace and can be no peace
in that ravaged land, openly founded upon the racist subjugation of three
million men, women and children, dismissed as mere . . "human
State Of Mind
I...took the train homewards, to Jaffa. The train carried a few Africans, probably illegal immigrants judging by their shy looks. A Romanian building team was gulping beer and burping loudly. They were imported from their impoverished East European land to build the houses for immigrants, as the Jews do not want to be employed in construction in Israel as well as in California. A Jewish Israeli lawyer in black yarmulke leafed papers in his semi-opened briefcase. A blond and armed Israeli soldier talked Ukrainian with its fricative h's to his corpulent girlfriend. He extolled his own heroic fight against the multitude of Arab terrorists under her admiring eyes. A group of Moroccans discussed the closure of Acre steel plant and their slim chances to find another job. The crisis is deepening, one of them said - it is as bad as in 1966.
The train rode through Haifa, and I thought of hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of Americans, Jews and Christian Zionists, who lobby, pray, support and pay - no, not for the Jewish state built on the ruins of Palestine. It would be bad enough; but reality is worse. I thought of millions of Palestinians, rotting in refugee camps and jails, dispossessed, expelled - not by the monster of evil occupation and land grabbing, but by something worse - by a ghost.
The Jewish state is a virtual state that quickly loses all remaining connection to reality. This ghost of a state kills people and collects money in America; it continues some nefarious existence, like the legal term, "estate of the deceased". Its fields are worked by imported guest workers, guarded by imported Russians and Ethiopians, explained by Israeli professors teaching forever in American universities and by brave generals on the lookout for a big shake. Unemployment grows daily, vital services are on strike; the tourist industry has collapsed, hotels are boarded up and other branches of national economy are close to collapse. Israelis buy flats in Florida and Prague, while houses in Israel could not be sold. Sharon's desire to punish Palestinians was similar to punishing one's own left hand: Palestinians and Israelis are intertwined and integrated, and this separation kills the economy of both.
From far away America, Israel looks like a giant, a nuclear state, a great friend of the United States, a Jewish state that is a source of pride for American Jews. A visitor leaves our shores with a strong feeling of our identity and prosperity. Only we, permanent residents, know that it is a cardboard sham. Israel is collapsing, as its active citizens emigrate in despair, while generals complete the destruction of the country. A cruel fate befalls the native Palestinians: a ghost kills them, a spiritless body walking in Zombie-like trance the corridors of the Congress and the deserts of the Middle East.
For the sake of this spectre, important American Jews squeeze every penny from their employees and countrymen, cut down on pensions to the old, no assistance for children, reduce the health and education budget, dry up help to starving Africa and Latin America, build improbable coalitions with notorious racists of Pat Robertson's kind, demand the wholesale destruction of Iraq, bless the bombing of Afghani refugees, keep Afro-Americans in their ghettos, undermine their host society, making enemies of themselves and to America. These deeds are vile enough, but they are useless as well. The Zionist experiment has practically collapsed. It can run for many years to come on a life-supporting machine as a brain-dead vegetable. It can kill people, maybe even start a world war. It cannot become alive.
The Jewish state of Israel is a state of mind; it is but a projection of the American Jewish mind. Worries and problems it articulates are American Jewish problems. For Israeli "Jews", there is no need of segregation, of war, of subjugation of natives. We eat no bagels with lox, speak no Yiddish, read no Saul Bellow or Sholom Aleichem, and avoid synagogues. We prefer Arab food and Greek music. My neighbourhood has seven pork butchers to a kosher one. Forty per cent of Tel Aviv weddings are done outside the Jewish framework: young Israelis prefer to go to Cyprus to get married, just to avoid contact with Rabbis. Tel Aviv is the gays' capital of the Middle East, though according to Jewish law, gays should be exterminated. If American Jews would not bribe Israelis on a large scale, we would just forget about the Diaspora and dissolve into the hospitable Middle East. If they continue to bankroll us, we shall oblige them with a small show of Jewishness.
We are master-sellers of illusion, and as long as there are buyers, we shall provide. In 1946, a group of dedicated men from all over the world came to Palestine under the aegis of the UN. They were sent to prepare the ground for the partition of the land. Among other places, they came to the southernmost kibbutz Revivim in the arid Negev, and came across a wonderful flowerbed with roses, anemones, and violets in front of the kibbutz office. In their report, the members of the delegation expressed their amazement and stated, "Jews make the desert bloom, let them have Negev."
As they left, the kibbutz youngsters went out and pulled the flowers out of the sand: they had bought fresh flowers the same morning on the Jaffa market and had planted them as props for the duration of the visit. This small outlay transferred Negev with its two hundred thousand Palestinians to the Jewish state. The Majority of them were expelled across the newly drawn border, to the camps of Gaza or Jordan. It was cruel and useless: even now, fifty years later, Negev south of Beersheba has a smaller population than in 1948.
In order to populate depopulated lands, Mossad broke and terrorised the Jewish communities of North Africa. The Jews were brought in, sprayed with DDT lice-killer and placed into refugee camps that soon became towns of Netivot, Dimona, Yerucham. They are still there, in the towns of unemployment and misery, drawing social benefits and probably disliking Ashkenazi Jews as much as anybody could. Not in vain, they write "Ashkenazim to Auschwitz" on the walls of their towns.
A few weeks before the Intifadah, Israeli establishment imprisoned a hugely popular leader of Oriental Jews, Rabbi Arie Deri. Tens of thousands of Moroccans gathered at the gates of the jail demanding his release. Intifada saved the skins of Ashkenazi Jews from the civil war, but not forever.
Thus the conjuring tricks of Revivim, conquest of Negev, expulsion of Palestinians, destruction of Moroccan Jewish community succeeded separately and failed altogether. Zionist leaders dreamed to make Palestine as Jewish as England is English. They failed. Palestine is Jewish as Jamaica is English.
The land of Palestine is being ruined now, in front of our eyes. Its beautiful old villages are bombed to oblivion; churches are emptied of their flock; olives are uprooted. Such ruin did not befall the land since the Assyrian invasion 2700 years ago. Nothing could comfort us in the face of this great destruction, and certainly the people connected to it - whether Israeli killers or their American Jewish supporters - will be damned forever.
Still, a wry irony of history will remain as a footnote in the books of the future: the Jewish leadership committed these crimes in vain, and received no profit out of it. Even if the last Palestinian would be crucified on the hill of Golgotha, even that would not bring to life the virtual Jewish state of Israel.

am a Christian who came to Israel with a deep awareness--instilled by my
parents and my academic background--of the horrific abuses the Church has
inflicted on Jews for two millennia.
the winter and spring of 1995, under the auspices of my organization,
Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT), I visited with numerous Israelis and
Palestinians involved in peace and human rights work. After meeting with
grassroots organizers in the West Bank city of Hebron, we received an
invitation from the mayor's office to set up a project there.
knew before the project started in June 1995 that my knowledge of the history
of Christian anti-Semitism would be both a burden and a tool. On the whole, my
knowledge has been a useful tool that has helped our team in Hebron establish
warm relationships with dozens of Israeli peace and human rights activists. It
has helped us connect Israelis with Palestinians who are facing home
demolition and ongoing harassment from Israeli soldiers and settlers. To do
our work, our team has had to open ourselves to the pain and suffering that
begat the pain and suffering that begat the pain and suffering ad infinitum.
at the moment, I only feel the "burden" part. I am tired and sick at
heart from what I have seen over the last two years, and I have done almost
nothing for the last three days besides deal with the fallout from death
threats that some Kachnik--probably at the behest of the Hebron settlers--has
made against my co-workers there.
I first sent Tikkun my reflection piece on Israel at fifty, I tried to convey
my ambivalence--how I juggle my relationships with Israelis and Palestinians,
my evangelical/fundamentalist upbringing, the realities of what I see, and the
historical context that gave rise to Zionism.
Michael Lerner, told me it came across as emotionally detached.
you want to know how I really feel about Israel after having worked for nearly
seventeen months as a human rights activist in Hebron? You don't want the sion
that I give in presentations to Mennonite Churches that emphasize our conflict
resolution work? You don't want the version I give Jewish friends to avoid
seeing that veil of pain drop across their faces? You don't want the version
that I tell the children in my household so they won't grow up thinking
Israelis are bad people?
you so sure you want to open those doors that my rage has strained against for
the past two years? Are you? Well here it goes. Israel makes me want to throw
things at a wall until the plaster shatters and my arms are too sore to hurl
anything else. Israel makes me wish that my theology permitted me a purgatory
where folks like Ariel Sharon would have to experience every bit of the pain
and terror they have inflicted on their victims over the last decades. Israel
makes me want to point my finger, like Emile Zola, like the prophet Nathan, at
Netanyahu and his cronies, and say: "J'accuse--You are the man," as
silent wraiths heap corpses of ewe lambs, slaughtered on the altar of Israeli
expansionism, at his feet. God! Do you have any idea what you are asking of
me, when you say you want something less detached? I have expended enormous
energy to subdue my passion so that I don't repulse those who are only
moderately interested in my work. I walk on eggshells so that I do not
detonate the passion of others who are too involved with the conflict.
of what I have witnessed, I can report only with detachment: I have seen a man
with his hands and feet blown off, skin boiled red, thrashing about like a
seal. I have seen men picking up little bits of people stuck to asphalt,
walls, and trees in Jerusalem. I have seen Israeli soldiers in Hebron beckon
settlers to come over and spit on terrified young men they have detained at a
checkpoint. I have seen the huge grin on the face of a man holding me up by
the hair with his left hand as he drew the other hand back to punch me in the
ear. From the ground I watched him run away with my camera held over his head
like a football, surrounded by other settlers in white shirts and black pants.
They laughed and cheered as though he had made a touch down. I have been
called "Nazi"; I have been spat at times too numerous to mention. I
have on many occasions had Miriam Levinger cackle at me, "Don't say I
didn't warn you."
have listened as countless soldiers and settlers who have never had a civil
conversation with a Palestinian--let alone eaten with them, lived with them,
babysat for them as I have--tell me all about what Arabs "are like."
I have heard Israeli soldiers tell me, "you have seen nothing," when
I confront them about physically abusing young Palestinian men they had
detained against the wall across from our apartment. I have stood one too many
times in front of tearful Palestinian women asking me "Laish? Why? Why?
WHY are they doing this? What have we done?" as they nursed the bruises
of their children who had been attacked by soldiers or settlers. I have
listened to their sobs and wails as bulldozers plowed into their houses while
Israeli soldiers laughed and cheered. My bile, my tears, well up as I write.
Before I went to Hebron I lived under the illusion that houses and human
bodies were solid. I didn't know they could come apart so easily.
is better to detach. It is better to think of myself as a biological organism,
made up of a finite amount of fluids, because otherwise I think my tears, my
vomit, would drown the Fertile Crescent.
year before I joined CPT, I finished a book, We Are the Pharisees, in which I
examined ways the Church has used Jesus' diatribes against the Pharisees as
anti-Semitic propaganda. I wrote "... until we understand our horrible
history of persecuting the Jews, we cannot really talk with [Jews] on issues
surrounding the state of Israel and Israeli-Palestinian relationships. Some of
my friends have expressed impatience with the way Jews "use" their
past persecutions in order to justify Israeli policies. I believe this is the
wrong approach. As long as we refuse to listen to the Jews regarding their
history, the Jews have every right to refuse to listen to us. We need to
understand why Jews throughout the world crave the security that came with the
founding of the State of Israel." I received my author's copies a week
before I flew to Israel for the first time. As I re-read my words today, I ask
myself, "Do I still believe them? Do I still believe anything I believed
before the Israeli-Palestinian conflict infected me?" I am able to rise
above my rage long enough to realize that, yes, my words still hold true. Even
given my experiences in Hebron, I don't think there is much I would add or
a Christian white European American I want to take responsibility for the
injustices in the Middle East. If I can take responsibility for what has
happened, that gives me a small measure of control, right? The silence roils
in my stomach. I will continue. I still believe I have an obligation to follow
Jesus' command that I love my enemies. Can I love Mr. Shektman, Miriam
Levinger, and the anonymous Kachniks currently threatening the lives of my
friends in Hebron? Yes, I can love them. They were not born hateful. I
know--no, I am certain--that God loves them.
friends have told me that W.B. Yeats' "The Second Coming" has become
especially meaningful to them to them in the last few years--"things fall
apart; the centre cannot hold."
lines from that poem that leap out at me are, "the best lack all
conviction, while the worst/Are full of passionate intensity." Is that
what you meant, when you said you wanted less detachment and more passion?
Because there has to be some emotional force that matches those who
vociferously defend their right to treat others with contempt? What if the
passion only adds to the cumulative rage mushrooming in the region? What if it
makes me lose control and betray the principles of non-violence to which I
have committed my life? What if my detachment is the only thing holding me

of Jewish Ritual Murder
(Edited from Mr. Martin's series on Communism)
- Willie Martin's Web Site
the purpose of brevity, the following is a heavily edited expose’ on
Jewish Ritual Murder. A Talmudic sanctioned ritual which is being
conductedin our day, just as it has for centuries.
On May 1, 1989, the Oprah Winfrey show had as its guest a person who,
as a young girl, was forced to participate in a ritual in which a
Christian infant was sacrificed. The amazing thing about this guest is
that she was not affiliated with some unknown radical blood letting
cult, but simply that She Was A Jew.
According to an article on the show in the "Chicago
Tribune," the woman was "undergoing long-term psychiatric
treatment," apparently because of the horrific nature of her
experience. The newspaper article is quoted below in its entirety.
Protest Sacrifice Tale On Oprah Show
York Times News Service
of television viewers and the leaders of several Jewish and civil
liberties organizations have protested allegations on a popular talk
show last week that some Jews practice ritual killing of children. The
allegations were made by a guest using the pseudonym ‘Rachel’ on
'The Oprah Winfrey Show,' a widely viewed syndicated talk show. During
the program, broadcast Monday, Winfrey introduced the guest as someone
who was undergoing long-term treatment for a multiple personality
disorder. The woman told Winfrey that she had witnessed the ritual
sacrifice of children and had been a victim of ritualistic abuse
guest also said of such practices: 'there's other Jewish families
across the country - it's not just my family.' The assertions were
made during a program that focused on the cult murders of at least 13
people whose bodies were found last month near Matamoros, Mexico. The
woman's comments provoked hundreds of angry phone calls and letters
from Jewish and civil liberties groups, spokesmen for the groups said
in interviews late last week. Jeffrey Jacobs, the chief operating
officer of Winfrey's production company, Harpo Productions Inc.,
denied Winfrey had acted irresponsibly in broadcasting the interview
since she had emphasized on the show that the guest spoke only for
herself. He added that Winfrey and her producers would meet with
representatives of the Jewish and civil liberties groups next week in
Chicago, where the show is taped. Winfrey was travelling Friday,
Jacobs said, and was unavailable for comment. Early in the interview
Winfrey said, 'This is the first time I have heard of any Jewish
people sacrificing babies, but anyway -- so you witnessed the
The woman responded: 'Right. When I was very young, I was forced to
participate in that, and which I had to sacrifice an infant.' The
guest was repeatedly identified by Winfrey as being Jewish. At one
point, the woman asserted that (Jewish) ritual sacrifices occurred in
other Jewish families around the country and that they were known to
the Police." (end of article)
all Jews are aware of the blood rite and its importance to the Jewish
cult, only the most important Jewish leaders, the rabbis and the
wealthiest members of the Jewish community, are allowed to participate
in the blood-drinking rite. Kastein states, on page 173, that the
ordinary Jews are forbidden to participate in the rite. One reason for
this is the fact that the practice of ritual murder is ‘fraught with
danger’ for the entire Jewish Community if discovered.
uprisings against the Jews during the past two thousand years have
stemmed from the discovery of this practice, and the resulting
attempts of the non-Jews to punish the Jews for murdering non-Jewish
children. The principal reason that this crime is so often discovered,
is that the naked, pierced body of the child, once it has been drained
of blood, must be thrown on a trash heap.
The Jewish rite forbids burial of the body, even though
this would conceal all evidence of their crime. The Talmud, the Holy
Book of the Jews, defines all non-Jews as beasts, and by Jewish law,
the burial of beasts is forbidden. Therefore, the Jews try to conceal
their crime by throwing the corpse of the murdered child down an
abandoned well, where it may not be discovered, or by hiding it in
some manner, which will not constitute burial.
many cases, the body is discovered, and then the Jews either are
attacked by the non-Jews, or they spend thousands of dollars bribing
witnesses and officials, and attempting to frame some gentile as a
"sex murderer." Bribery and intimidation of public officials
and newspapermen is always the first step in this campaign. In the
United States, since many of these are Jews, no bribery is necessary,
as every Jew knows that it is his first duty to conceal the evidence
of ritual murder. It is also customary for the Jews to pay off the
murdered child's parents with a large sum of money, which in many
cases means that they will not prosecute.
Jewish Ritual Murder Still Exist? At one time or another the Jews have
been expelled from every country in Europe. And in almost every case
it was over the charge of Ritual Murder. The accusation was that
during the Jewish feasts of Purim and/or Passover, extremist Hassidic
Orthodox Jewish sects would sacrifice a Christian youth for their
blood. It was then dried and the powder mixed into triangular cakes or
bread for eating in order for the Jews to gain atonement in the eyes
of their god. It is possible that Purim blood might sometimes have
been held over for the Passover.
History Of Jewish Human Sacrifice: The ancient Khazar Jews along
with others of that Near East era, followed a common custom of human
sacrifice. The practice was to burn a young person upon an altar
called a Tophet. The Old Testament of the Bible mentions this practice
and condemns it. Around the Tophet altar, drums would be beaten loudly
to drown out the cries of the children being burned alive. In the
pre-Christian era, the Priests of Baal would blow trumpets to drown
out their screams. The Carthaginians also were worshippers of Baal and
sacrificed children on a massive scale. When faced with defeat in
Syracuse in 310 B.C., history records
that the sons of 500 nobles were cast into a fiery pit, or
Tophet, from a scaffold shaped in the likeness of their god Baal.
recent Excavations at Gezer, the archaeologist R.A.S. Macalister notes
that the bodies of sacrificed young children are found in every
stratum of Jewish remains from the earliest times. Photographs of the
children's bodies are published in Macalister's book, although the
book itself, like most works, which attest to the criminal nature of
the Jews, is now almost unobtainable. It is classified as a rare book,
and most rare book dealers are Jews.
the Bible, Isaiah 57:3-5 the prophet, talking of the Jews of his day
says: "But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed
of the adulterer and the whore. Against whom do ye sport yourselves?
Against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? Are ye not
children of transgression, a seed of falsehood, Enflaming yourselves
with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys
under the clefts of the rocks?"
the phrase, "ye sons of the sorceress," Isaiah calls
attention to the fact that Jewish ritual murder is a black magic rite.
It is customary for the rabbi, as he drinks blood, to invoke the
presence of Satan, who will then presumably carry out the wishes of
the Jews. The drinkers of blood also swear eternal obedience to Satan
during the blood rite. Isaiah also calls attention to the fact that
here the children are slain "under the cleft of the rocks."
This refers to the Jewish ban against burying the slain gentile child,
and to hiding the body in the rocks in the hopes that the gentiles
will not discover their crime.
Jewish Encyclopaedia, Vol. VIII, page 653, published in 1904, says, "The
fact, therefore, now generally accepted by critical scholars, is that
in the last days of the kingdom, human sacrifices were offered to Yhwh
(Yahu, or Jehovah), as King of Counsellor of the Nation, and that the
Prophets disapproved of it."
also is interchangeable with Baal, the Golden Idol, and Satan, who is
thought to have been a minor god of the Jews, and an instrument of
Baal. The two themes of Jewish history are blood and gold, and every
practice of the Jews is inextricably bound up with these two factors.
expose of the subject of Ritual Murder was written in great detail by
Arnold S. Leese, entitled "My Irrelevant Defence on Jewish Ritual
Murder," London, 1938. Addressing the issue of sacrifices, Mr.
Leese states: "Let a Jew speak for us here: 'Bernard Lazare, a
Jew who was stated (Jewish Encyclopaedia, 1904, Vol. VII, p. 650) to
be 'without any religious convictions.' wrote what he himself
described as 'an impartial study of the history and sociology of the
Jews.' calling his book L'Antisemitisme; in the 1904 edition of this,
Vol. II, p. 215, he writes, after mentioning the accusations against
the Jews of Ritual Murder: 'To this general belief are added the
suspicions, often justified, against the Jews addicted to magical
practices. Actually, in the Middle Ages, the Jew was considered by the
people as the magician par excellence; one finds many formulae of
exorcism in the Talmud, and the Talmudic and Cabbalistic demonology is
very complicated. Now one knows the position that blood always
occupies in the operations of sorcery. In Chaldean magic it had a very
great importance. Now, it
is very probable, even certain that Jewish magicians sacrificed
children; hence the origin of the legend of ritual sacrifice.
Thus Lazare tries to absolve the Jews of the ritual murder
charge by saying that they were guilty, but that it was done from
motives of sorcery, rather than as a key element in the practice of
the Jewish religion. He apparently has not read the Bible, or noted
Isaiah's denunciations of the Jews as sorcerers and murderers of
children. Of course the Jews killed children during their rites of
sorcery, as Lazare admits, but these horrors were committed as
essential rites of the Jewish religion.
Eric Bischoff, a famous German Jewish scholar, has found the explicit
authorization of the practice of Jewish ritual murder in the Thikunne
Zohar, Edition Berdiwetsch, 88b, a book of cabbalistic ritual, as
follows: "Furthermore, there is a commandment pertaining to the
killing of strangers, who are like beasts. This killing has to be done
in the lawful (Jewish) method. Those who do not ascribe themselves to
the Jewish religious law must be offered up as sacrifices to the
(Jews) high god (Satan)."
of Christian children by the Jews usually occur during the important
feast-days, Purim, one month before Easter, and Passover, at Easter.
Jewish law prescribes that the gentile victim at Purim, a Jewish
holiday as the Jewish victory over the gentiles, may be an adult. Also
if no gentile victim can be obtained, dried blood from a previous
victim may be used. However,
a Jewish law is quite specific that the victim at Passover must be a
White Child (as the Whites are the True Israelites, and the Jews know
this) under seven years of age, who must be bled white, crowned with
thorns, tortured, beaten, stabbed, and finally given the last blow by
being wounded in the side, the dagger prescribed to be in the hands of
a rabbi, in a complete re-enactment of the crucifixion of Christ.
This incredible, vindictive ceremony reassures the Jews that
even if a few of the gentiles are alerted to the true nature of this
scourge, as Christ so clearly railed against them, the Jews will
always win out by murdering the critic. Consequently, many critics of
the Jews are slain in these terrible ceremonies.
the United States, perhaps the most famous victim of Jewish ritual
murder was the son of Charles Lindbergh, which occurred on March 1,
1932, during the time of the annual Jewish celebration.
Lindbergh's son was chosen because Lindbergh himself was the
most logical person to lead the gentiles against the Jews. His son was
slain as a warning to him to decline this service. Lindberg's father,
a Congressman, had led the fight against Paul Warburg of Kuhn, Loeb
Co., when Warburg succeeded in getting a subservient Congress to pass
the Federal Reserve Act. The elder Lindbergh had published a book,
which was burned by Federal agents during World War I, even though he
was a Congressman at the time. He was well aware of the nature of the
Jewish power problem. Now that his son was world-famous, after his
feat of flying solo across the Atlantic, the Jews feared that he might
be persuaded to lead a gentile revolt against their power.
had already planned World War II, in which Germany was to be the
sacrificial victim, and now they brought in an almost illiterate
German, Gerhart Hauptmann, and convicted him of the killing.
Symbolically, Hauptmann, like Christ, was also a carpenter, a
profession that made him a logical victim for the Jews.
Hauptmann's defence was that a Jew named Isidor Fisch had
hired him to do some carpenter work, and had paid him with the bills,
which proved to be from the Lindbergh ransom money. Although the
existence of Fisch was proven, he could not be located during the
trial. The court was like the one which had convicted Jesus, for it
only accepted evidence which the Jews allowed to be presented.
reality, of course, one cannot believe anything which is accepted as
evidence in an American court, due to the facility of the Jews for
manufacturing evidence and due to the prevalence of Jewish lawyers and
judges in all American court rooms. This was also the first of many
efforts of the Jews to vilify the Germans so that America would be
more easily deceived into fighting a Jew's war.
A book entitled "The Jew, the Gypsy, and El Islam,"
indicates that the Talmudic god of the Jews (Not the God of
Christians) is a blood loving god: "The Talmud declares that
there are two kinds of blood pleasing to the lord, viz: (1) that of
Paschal holocaust (Easter sacrifice & the Feast of Purim); (2)
that of circumcision."
to the Jewish Encyclopaedia, 1903, Vol. IV., p. 90, when performing
the operation of circumcision on children, the mohel (Jewish Rabbi who
does the circumcision): "takes some wine in his mouth and applies
his lips to the part involved in the operation, and exerts suction,
after which he expels the mixture of wine and blood into a receptacle
provided." Among the Jews themselves, the blood rite is an
integral part of the ceremony of circumcising Jewish males.
What the Jewish Encyclopaedia does not tell us is that this
mixture of wine and blood is then drunk by the rabbi, as a great
delicacy. No other people in the world today enacts such a primitive
blood rite, save, perhaps, some Stone-Age natives in the deepest
jungles of the Congo or New Guinea.
of Christianity is a well-hidden tradition among the Jews. One of the
principle feast-days is that of Purim. This feast is an orgy of hate
against Haman, the story of whom is found in the Book of Esther of the
Old Testament, the only Jewish book in the entire Bible.
The story is that Xeroxes, King of Persia, became enamoured
with a Jewess, Esther a prostitute, and made her Queen in place of his
rightful wife. Haman, the King's minister, complained to him of the
conduct of the Jews who, he said, did not keep the laws of the land,
and obtained from the King an order to slay them.
Esther pleaded with the King and prevailed upon him to
summon Haman to a banquet. There, Queen Esther further prevailed upon
the King to spare the Jews and hang Haman on a gallows prepared for
the execution of her guardian. Instead of the Jews being destroyed,
their enemies were slaughtered, including Haman's ten sons, who were
feast is often celebrated by an exhibition of gluttony, intoxication,
and curses on the memory of Haman; and even to this day the Jewish
bakers make cakes, laced with dried Christian blood, in the shape of
human ears which are eaten by the Jews on this day, and are called
"Haman's Ears," revealing once again the incredible,
inherent hate and barbarism of the “chosen” in our midst.
festival at which Ritual Sacrifice has sometimes been indulged in is
Chanucah (Which is called Hanukkah today) which occurs in December,
commemorating the recovery of Jerusalem under the Maccabees in B.C.
165. Although hate is the principal motive, superstitious traditions
are also involved, one being the association of blood-sacrifices with
the idea of atonement; some Jews have confessed that Jewry cannot be
“saved” unless every year the blood of a Christian is obtained for
the purpose of ritual consumption.
Jewish Encyclopaedia, 1903, Vol. III, pp. 266-267, gives a list of
Accusations of Ritual Murder (Sacrifices) made against the Jews
through the centuries; 122 cases are listed in chronological order,
and no less than 39 of them were made in the 19th century! There were
far more than double the number of Blood Accusations made in the 19th
century than in any previous century, according to this authoritative
Jewish list. The list of
Ritual Murder Accusations made by a converted Jew, Cesare Algranati,
in 1913, and published in Cahiers Romains; there are listed 101
accusations, of which 28 were made in the 19th century and only 73 for
all the eight preceding centuries! Even the Jew Roth gives the
argument away, for he says: "The nineteenth century proved little
less credulous than those which proceeded it." (Ritual Murder
Libel and The Jew, 1935)
fact that the charges increase in number as the age becomes more and
more enlightened is particularly significant, because the Jewish Money
Power and its silencing activities are more developed than ever before
and has been instrumental in reducing the number of charges by
covering them up. It is absolutely amazing that there are always
influential Judeo-Christian men/women who can be induced, when Jewish
interests are at stake, will declare to all the world that there is
nothing improper in not attempting to examine these charges of Ritual
Sacrifice by the Jews; and to declare them as lies by
Yet the record is clear if one is inclined to study and learn.
are few such examples: "Then the Jews in Cyrene (on the
modern Tripoli coast of North Africa) choosing as their leader one
Andreas, slew the Romans and Greeks, and devoured their bodies, drank
the blood, clothed themselves in the flayed skins, and sawed many in
half from the head downwards; some they threw to wild beasts and
others were compelled to fight in single combat, so that in all
220,000 were killed. In Egypt they did many similar things, also in
Cyprus, led by one of them named Artemion; and there another 240,000
were slain." (From the account of Dio Cassius in the 78th Book of
his history, dated A.D. 117, Chapter 32)
"Baena (Cordoba Province): Ninety-one assassinations, mostly by
shooting, hatchet blows, or strangling. Others were burned alive. Two
nuns who had been dragged from the convent of the Mother of God, had
their religious medals, with the figure of the Virgin, nailed into the
sockets of their eyes. La Campana (Seville): Reds, led by a woman,
Concepcion Velarde Caraballo, who either killed or was responsible for
killing 11 persons in prison. The prisoners were fired on until they
fell, covered with petrol, and set on fire. Some were still writhing
in the flames when the city was entered. Lore del Rio (Seville): 138
assassinated. They were dragged to the cemetery, lined up, and shot in
the legs, being burned alive as they fell in a trench. When the town
was entered hands could still be seen writhing above the ground."

Red Revolution in Spain, A.D. 1936)
the Magick, in Paris, France:
"...it was the theory of the ancient (Jewish) magicians that any
living being is a storehouse of energy varying in quantity according
to the size and health of the animal (non-Jews), and in quality
according to its mental and moral character. At the death of the
animal this energy is liberated suddenly. The animal should therefore
be killed within the Circle, or Triangle, as the case may be, so that
its energy cannot escape...For the highest spiritual working one must
accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest
force. A (Christian) male child of perfect innocence and high
intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim."
(Magick, by Master Therion, published in 1929 by the Lecram Press,
Paris, France) A footnote
on p. 95 says: "(4) It appears from the Magical Records of (the
Jew) Frater Perdurabo that he made this particular sacrifice on an
average about 150 times every year between 1912 and 1928."
today the Jewish sects who keep the Passover by solar computation,
indulge in these bloody sacrifices of Christians on that feast-day; an
account is given of a visit to the scene of a sacrifice on Mount
Gerizim in this century, and these words were used: "I have heard
the wild, primitive scream of triumph as the knife is withdrawn from
the neck of the (Christian) lamb of sacrifice."
paragraph from the B'nai B'rith Messenger, 1936: "The
sophisticated Pharisee (Jew) of the 20th century unceasingly gives
thanks that he has outgrown the fables and rituals of the Ancients.
The worldly-wise man loves the evident and is exasperated by that
which is not evident. Plutocrat and proletarian alike regard
themselves a victimized by that person whose words or actions they do
not understand. We love the obvious because it flatters us, and hate
the mysterious because it damns our intelligence with faint praise.
Riddles are irksome. (Which is why Christ always spoke in parables
when speaking before the Jewish Pharisees. They did not like it, did
not understand the parables and He knew it) The modern cry is for
facts. Yet, with facts for his fetish, the modernist is more foolish
than his forebears. Decrying superstition, he is most superstitious;
rejecting fancies, he is the fanciful product of a fictitious age. The
modern world is bored with its own importance; life itself has become
a botheration. Suffering from chronic ennui, how can a world ever
become interested in anything but itself? Smothered in their
self-complacency, these all-sufficient ones ask for facts. But what
facts are there that fools can understand? How can the helpless
superficial grasp the hopelessly profound, for are not realities
reserved for the wise (Jews)?" Although this paragraph is
clothed in nonsense it is a picture of a Ritual Sacrifice, with the
victim crucified. And is merely showing the contempt the Jew has for
Christians because they cannot understand this type of wording.
Foxe's Acts and Monuments of the Church records Ritual Sacrifice, as
did the Bollandists and other historians. The Prior, William Turbe,
who afterwards became Bishop of Norwich, was the leading light in
insisting that the crime was one of Jewish Ritual Sacrifice; in the
Dictionary of National Biography (edited by a Jew) it is made clear
that his career, apart from this Ritual Sacrifice, is that of a man of
great strength of character and moral courage.
are now many Jewish hospitals in the United States, which are owned
and operated by Jewish doctors and nurses. A few unsuspecting parents
who place their children in these institutions for minor ailments are
stunned to be told, a day or two later, that the child has suddenly
passed away. In many such cases, the child has been removed to a
synagogue and murdered by the prescribed ritual. The bloodless body of
the victim is then turned over to the parents. This procedure also
obeys the Jewish prohibition against the burial of a gentile, for the
Jews simply allow the parents to take care of the burial.
therefore, behoves American parents to avoid leaving their children
unguarded in the presence of a Jewish physician or placing the child
in a hospital run by Jews. Any parent should think twice about
abandoning a helpless child to a people which has a history of five
thousand years of murdering children under such horrible
circumstances. And any parent should be able to visualize the horror
of the handsome, perfectly formed body of the child on which they have
lavished such loving care, being stripped and laid down on a table
while Jews, their eyes filled with blood lust and hatred of the
Christians, gather round the child and pierce its flesh, and drink its
blood, and call down curses upon the name of Jesus Christ.
could go on and on with case after case for literally hundreds of
pages, but we believe this should suffice to show that the Jews did
and still engage in blood sacrifice of mainly Christian children for
their ceremonies. In other words, the Jews have a god which finds
murdered blood pleasing. In the words of Mr. Leese, "What sort of
a people is this whose god finds the blood obtained from mutilation of
human genital organs as 'pleasing?'"
from the Jewish writer Charles A. Weisman's Book "Who is
"During the Middle Ages Jews were found guilty of ritual murder
of Christians in England; at Norwich in 1146, and Lincoln in 1225; in
France at Blois in 1171; and in northern Italy at Trent in 1475. Even
the Jewish Encyclopaedia lists 121 Ritual Murder cases from 1146 to
1900, which were tried in courts. Many of the listings show
convictions and the mode in which guilty Jews were executed."
(This is referenced to The Jewish Encyclopaedia, Vol. III, (1903) pp.
from "Who is Esau-Edom?": "From 1900 to 1939's there
have been about another twenty cases of ritual murder by Jews. Even to
this day there are reports of ritual murder of (Christian) children by
certain extremist Hasidic Orthodox Jewish sects." (The
Pharisees were originally identical with the Hasidim or Hasidic sect
of Judaism. The Jewish Encyclopaedia Vol. IX (1905) p. 661)
from "Who is Esau-Edom?": "Abortion has become an overt
means of child sacrifice which Jews have instituted under their de
facto law. A more covert means of (Christian) child sacrifice has been
by their infamous 'ritual murders, which Jews have been accused
through the ages.' In this practice 'the blood of the sacrificed
gentile (Christian Child) is mixed with flour to make the unleavened
bread eaten at Passover.'" (The Illustrated Atlas of Jewish
Civilization, Ed. Martin Gilbert, MacMillan Pub. Co., 1990, p. 125)
are many well-respected authors who have attested to this silent fact
of Jewish Ritual Murder, for it is not the uneducated who make such
claims. Sir Richard Francis Burton described the Jewish Ritual
Murder of Father Thomas and others in his manuscript "Human
Sacrifice among the Sephardim or Eastern Jews" (which was later
published, in part, as "The Jew, the Gypsy, and el Islam").
Well-respected Russian writer V.V. Rozanov described such
activities in his book "The Relationship of Jews to Blood."
Dr. Vladimir Ivanovich Dal, a Russian physician and author of
the Dal Living Dictionary (who even has a current postage stamp in his
honour), described this in his book "Searching for the Jews who
Murder Christian Babies, and How These Jews Use the Babies'
Blood" (later published as "Notes about the Ritual
Murders"). Well-respected veterinarian Dr. Arnold Leese,
whose books about animals even impressed the queen, wrote about these
wicked crimes in his book! "Jewish Ritual Murder." Likewise,
Hellmut Schramm, Ph.D., described such vicious crimes in his book
"Jewish Ritual Murder: An Historical Investigation." Russian
attorney and Duma member G.G. Zamyslovsky described these vicious
crimes in his book "The Murder of Andrei Youshchinsky."
Recently, in the United States, Philip DeVier, Ph.D., wrote about this
in his brilliant 256-page book "Blood Ritual." Matt
Hale, J.D. (doctor of law), published a book (2002) based on a speech
entitled "Jewish Occult Murders: How and Why Jews Sacrificed
Non-Jewish Children as Part of Their Religion." Harrell
Rhome, Ph.D., also describes these wicked acts in his book (2002)
"Debacle in Damascus: The 1840 Jewish Ritual Murder Case of
the Old Testament we read about children "passing through the
fire." This is a euphemism, of course; for this actually
referred to Jews, who followed the occult rites of “the star of
their god,” tossing children in a burning pit called a Tophet.
In an ironic fact, the term "holocaust" itself is
actually derived from the practice of Jews making a burning sacrifice
to their deity, as English dictionaries prior to 1950 will attest.
me briefly quote Dr. Vladimir Ivanovich Dal from the above-cited book
on these crimes:
weak, unsatisfactory searching of investigators, the different tricks
of Jews, their impudent and stubborn denial, not infrequently a
bribery, the confidence by the majority of educated people in that an
accusation is merely the infamous slander and, finally, the humanity
of our criminal laws--all these things saved the Jewish culprits,
nearly every time, from deserved execution. And they--by using
their machinations, by giving false oath assurances of innocence, and
by using false propaganda that suggested such accusations were merely
the result of accomplished injustice with slander built on
them--almost always were well prepared for such accusations. The
Jews punished those who demonstrated credible evidence against them.
In the year 1817 [in Russia], a law was enacted on February 28
that the Superior Command announced on March 6: It was prohibited to
even suspect the Jews of such crimes, and the opinion that the Jews
needed no! n-Jewish blood was called a prejudice. Meanwhile, an
examination of the places where the secret training of Talmudists took
place recognizes the realization of this mutilation-murder, and the
impartial view put forth in these case productions convinces, without
doubt, the truth of their validity."
Hatred For Christians Rekindled
infamous sermon by Rabbi Leon Spitz, illustrates the message by which
the flames of hatred are rekindled every spring in the synagogues:
"...Let Esau (As the Jews have stolen the name Israelites from
the True descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: Israel; they call
the True Israelites by their name: Esau) whine and wail and protest to
the civilized world, and let Jacob raise his hand to fight the good
fight. The anti-Semite understands but one language, and he must be
dealt with on his own level. The Purim Jews stood up for their lives.
American Jews, too, must come to grips with our contemporary
anti-Semites. We must fill our insane asylums with anti-Semitic
lunatics. We must combat every alien Jew-hater. We must harass and
prosecute our Jew-baiters to the extreme limits of the laws. We must
humble and shame our anti-Semitic hoodlums to such an extent that none
will wish or dare to become their 'fellow-travellers.'
"Thanks to the terrible power of our International Banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews, since Christians massacre each other and make more room for us Jews. Wars are the Jews' Harvest: The Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over 100-million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars, and the end is not yet." (Rabbi Reichorn, speaking at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben-Iudah, 1869, Henry Ford also noted that: 'It was a Jew who said, 'Wars are the Jews' harvest'; but no harvest is so rich as civil wars.' The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem, Vol. III, p. 180).
ritual murder has now reached its zenith, but is not finished yet!

on the Demi-gods of Genesis 6
I. Who Are The Nephilim?
all the unimaginable Biblical phenomena on Earth, the progeny of this union
between extra-terrestrials and humans is the most bizarre. Man has paid little
attention to them until now, for the fact of their existence has been shrouded
in legend. But can they be dismissed as myth any longer? In this end time
hour, many strange phenomena are occurring. Jesus said, "As the days of
Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be" (Matthew
24:37). It was the wickedness of humanity and the abominable union of the
supernatural with the natural that moved God to judge the world. We are fast
approaching a new period of God's wrath. The return of these super creatures
may even now be a real threat to us.
NEPHILIM: ETYMOLOGICAL EVIDENCE
are these beings? A clue to their identity is found in their name--Nephilim.
The word itself is Hebrew, and it is first used in Genesis 6:4.
There were giants in the earth in those
days: and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of
men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of
old, men of renown.
is translated "giants" in the Authorized King James Version, but
"giants" is in no way a complete description.
Commentators like Lange trace the word "Nephilim" to the root
"Niphal" meaning "distinguished ones." This corresponds
perfectly with the "men of renown" at the end of Genesis 6:4,
nevertheless it is not a generally accepted translation.
Others have sought the root of the word in the Hebrew consonants
"npl" as found in Psalm 58:8. Here it means "miscarriage."
Accepting this theory, the Nephilim would be those superhuman beings that
resulted from miscarriages. Genesis Rabbah (26:7) seems to confirm this
translation when it states: Nephilim
denotes that they hurled the word down, themselves fell (naflu) from the
world, and filled the world with abortions (nephilim) through their
Most scholars, however, reject both these interpretations and trace the word "Nephilim" to the Hebrew root "Naphal" meaning "to fall." The Nephilim are the "fallen ones." A direct reference to the fallen angels who sired them. Some writers such as Ben Adam believe the word "Nephilim" refers to the fallen angels themselves and not to their offspring.
Because of some uncertainty in the translation of the Hebrew word, more and more Bible versions are now leaving the original word untranslated. Thus the New International Version renders the passage: "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days..." (Genesis 6:4). This also does justice to the fact that the definite article precedes the word in the original. "The Nephilim were on the earth..." The same definite article is also found in the other biblical passage where the word "Nephilim" occurs, namely, Numbers 13:33. "We saw the Nephilim there..."
Interpreting the Nephilim as "the fallen ones" dismisses the suggestion of one modern author that belief in the Nephilim could lead to racism. He fears that people would boast of having celestial blood in their veins and consider themselves superior to those of ordinary, human ancestry. To claim descent from stellar explorers could lead to a class distinction surpassing anything ever seen in society, but he need have no such qualms! If the Nephilim are stellar, they are also infernal. To claim descent from such beings would be to admit an ancestry from Hell. Although there is no etymological evidence to justify "giants" as an accurate translation for "Nephilim," such a translation is not without merit. In more senses than one, Nephilim were giants.
GIANTS IN SIZE
For one thing, they were giants in size and strength. Much documentation of the exceptional physical stature and super- human strength of the Nephilim exists, and this is not in the least surprising, knowing that they were "fathered" by angels. Angels as already stated, do "excel in strength" (Psalm 103:20). They are greater "in power and might" than men of earth (2 Peter 2:1 1).
What applies to holy angels, applies equally to the offspring of these rebellious angels. Their moral fall does not seem to have reduced their physical prowess. The Book of Enoch states that their "height was like the tallness of cedars and whose bodies were like mountains." A modern author describes them in the following terms: Perverted power and strength are (thus) conspicuous attributes of fallen angels. This titanic energy is displayed in the supernatural strength demons can impart to the human body when they enter it and possess it. (2)
The New Testament supplies many such examples. One of the most noted is that of the Gadarene demoniac, who by his super-human strength could snap fetters and break chains. John Wesley in his journal entry for May 2, 1739, writes of a certain John Haydon, a respectable person, present in one of his meetings, and who "fell off his chair and began screaming terribly and beating himself against the ground ...Two or three men were holding him as well as they could. The man then roared out, "O thou devil! thou cursed devil! Yea, thou legion of devils! thou canst not stay! Christ will cast thee out!"' Fortunately, after prayer, Wesley reports that "both his body and soul were set at liberty." These and countless similar examples are reminiscent of what happened to the seven sons of Sceva in Acts 19. A demonised man out-numbered seven to one, was able to overcome all seven by a phenomenal show of strength. The Bible states that they were fortunate to escape from the house naked and wounded.
A SECOND INCURSION
In Genesis 6, where the word "Nephilim" is first used, we are told that the Nephilim appeared on the Earth just before the Flood, and that their appearance was the main reason for the Flood.
main reason for the Flood was mankind's total rebellion against God, Genesis
6:5-8, "The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth,
and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil
continually. And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it
grieved him to his heart. So the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I
have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping things
and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them." But Noah
found favour in the eyes of the LORD.--ed.)
followed another incursion of these fallen angels at a later date, (i.e.,
after the Flood,--ed.).
We read in Genesis 6: "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and also afterward..."
(N.I.V.). This data is found in Numbers 13:33: "We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim)" (N.I.V.). This second eruption was probably on a more limited and restricted scale than the first. Nevertheless, God ordered their complete destruction.
One has often wondered at the severe an extreme measures that God asked Joshua to put into effect once he entered the land of Canaan. God commanded him to "utterly destroy them." (The Canaanites were not these giants, they were descended from Ham's son Canaan--the post-flood giants, the offspring of fallen angels merely lived in the same land--near Hebron and in parts of what is now Jordan.--ed)
have found it difficult to reconcile this with the character of God. One can
only surmise that God had a special reason to issue such a command. Could it
be that God knew the heritage of these Nephilim?
God was aware that the Canaanites and their neighbours manifested the whole gamut of demonical practices, and that they were a threat to the character and destiny of His chosen people Israel, who were entering the land at that time. This is why He warned the Israelites not to imitate the occult practices of these people whom they dispossessed. With the same unmatched anger that He had displayed in Genesis 6, God orders the complete extermination of the inhabitants of Canaan. "But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee" (Deuteronomy 20:17). However, Israel, as so often in her history, failed to obey God, and there is reason to believe that some of the Nephilim survived (Joshua 13:13, 16:10; Judges 1:28-34).
progeny of these Nephilim went under various names. We read of the Anakim,
descended from Anak (Numbers 13:28); the Rephaim, descended from Rapha; the
Zamzummims, the Emims, the Avims, etc. All shared the characteristics of being
huge, tall and strong. Rabbi Bahya ben Asher, a Spanish Cabalist, claimed the
Nephilim were heads of the family called "sons of God." They were so
called because terror fell on those who saw them. As the virility of the stock
declined, they were called Anakim and later Rephaim. (7) Here is an Old
Testament description of the Emim: "The
Emim dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the
Anakim; which also were accounted giants, as the Anakim; but the Moabites
called them Emims. (Deuteronomy 2:10, 11)."
men were such giants that the Israelite spies who went in to reconnoitre the
land, cowered before them: "And
there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we
were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
Josephus, the noted historian of the first century A.D., described these
giants as having "bodies so large and countenances so entirely different
from other men that they were surprising to the sight and terrible to the
hearing." (8) And he adds that in his day, the bones of the giants were
still on display! Deuteronomy 3:11 describes one of these giants in more
only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants: behold, his bedstead
was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? Nine
cubits was the length thereof and four cubits the breadth of it, after the
cubit of a man."
super king-sized bed! In modem measurements it was 18 feet, 6 inches long, and
8 feet, 4 inches wide! Some of these giants carried spears that weighed from
ten to twenty-five pounds. One carried a spear whose staff was "like a
weaver's beam" (II Samuel 21:19). Goliath wore a coat of armour that
weighed 196 pounds, and he was said to be about nine feet tall. Some of these
giants had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot.
FROM OUTSIDE THE MIDDLE EAST
giants were not confined to the Middle East. Two dozen human footprints of
abnormal size have been found in the Paluxi riverbed, Texas, some of them
measuring eighteen inches long. Other giant markings have been discovered in
such diverse places as Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and California. In the
Mt. Vernon area of Ohio, Dr. Wilbur G. Burroughs of the Geological Division of
the Berea College, Kentucky, reported finds of human foot prints 23.75 cm.
long and 10.25 wide! Near Antelope Springs, Utah, William Meister discovered
in 1968 two human footprints 32.5 cm. long and 11.25 wide.
giant footprints have been discovered in other countries especially in the Mt.
Victoria region of Australia. Not
only do we have footprints of giants but actual skeletons as well. In 1936
Larson Kohl, the German palaeontologist and anthropologist, found the bones of
gigantic men on the shore of Lake Elyasi in Central Africa. Other giant
skeletons were later found in Hava, the Transvaal and China. The evidence for
the existence of giants is incontrovertible. "A scientifically assured
fact," says Dr. Louis Burkhalter. (9)
Nephilim also were giants in knowledge. According to the Book of Enoch, God
was incensed against the fallen angels partly because they disclosed certain
classified information to humans. The ancient world associated demons with
special esoteric knowledge and with superior intelligence. The word
"demon" in Greek (daimon) comes from the root meaning
"knowledge" or "intelligence." The Scriptures also testify
to the fact that demons have access to knowledge and information denied to
ordinary mortals. We read in the Gospels how they recognized and acknowledged
the deity of Christ when humans seemed totally blind to the fact. When the
Gaderene demoniac saw Jesus, he fell down before him, and cried out,
"What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high?"
(Luke 8:28). These demons recognized Jesus at the beginning of His ministry,
way ahead of His own disciples.
the Book of Acts, with the same supernatural knowledge, demons recognized the
mission and message of the Apostle Paul. The possessed damsel at Philippi
cried, "These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto
us the way of salvation" (Acts 16:17). This happened at a time when the
people of Philippi had no idea who Paul was, nor did they know the nature of
his mission. We cannot but note that every recorded statement made by demons
in the New Testament concerning Christ or Paul was one-hundred percent
of Alexandria suggested an interesting reason for this superior knowledge of
demons: It is evident, since they
are demoniac spirits, that they know some things more quickly and more
perfectly than men, for they are not retarded in learning by the heaviness of
a body. Examples of this trait in
demons are supplied by various missionary organizations. They tell us how
people possessed by evil spirits acquire superior knowledge, far above that of
their brethren. In an editorial in Christian Life Magazine we find these words
concerning the murder of five young American missionaries in the jungles of
Ecuador in 1956:
at Arajuno mission base knew in a few hours what had happened when five
missionaries deep in Ecuador's Auca territory in 1956 failed to make radio
contact with anxiously waiting fellow missionaries. How? They asked a local
witch doctor. He obliged by falling into a trance, calling up his favourite
demons and asking them to tell him where the missing missionaries were.
According to the friendly Indians, they heard demons leave the scene
and, in a short time, returned with the message that the missionaries were in
the Curaray River with Auca lances in them."
L. Nevius, a medical missionary in China at the end of the last century
gathered a significant compendium of data on this subject. After sending a
detailed questionnaire to Protestant missionaries all over China, he gleaned a
vast amount of information about the symptoms of demonism. One characteristic
he found again and again was the prevalence of superior knowledge and
intelligence in the possessed person--even on subject matters of which the
person had no prior knowledge.
may well supply the key to the great knowledge and expertise that
characterized certain men in ancient times. As already seen, such knowledge
and expertise by "primitive" men continue to defy explanation. P.J.
Wiseman admits to this mysterious factor:
It was expected that the more ancient the period, the more primitive
would excavators find it to be, until traces of civilization ceased altogether
and aboriginal man appeared. Neither in Babylonia, nor Egypt, the land of the
oldest known habitations of man, has this been the case. (10)
Custance pertinently states this strange sequence right at the beginning of
human history: "...an
unbelievably long time with almost no growth; a sudden spurt leading within a
very few centuries to a remarkably high culture; a gradual slowing up, and
decay, followed only much later by recovery of lost arts and by development of
new ones leading ultimately to the creation of our modern world. What was the
agency which operated for that short period of time to so greatly accelerate
the process of cultural development and produce such remarkable results?"
this agency be the Nephilim? Could this expertise have been imparted by beings
from outer space? And could this explain the mysteries surrounding Stonehenge,
the Mayan Caracol, Tiahuanaco, the Bay of Pisco, and particularly the Great
Pyramid? Did the knowledge necessary to construct these monolithic structures
come from the Nephilim? Were they the ones responsible for what Custance calls
the "climax at the beginning"? (12)
for the Great Pyramid, many scientists suggest a date back in the generations
preceding the Flood. If so, those happen to be the very times of the Nephilim,
the generations of the "giants" and of the "men of
renown." But what if it could be proven that the Great Pyramid was not
built until after the Flood? There is still no problem.
The pyramids are made of fossiliferous limestone derived from flood deposits,
so the pyramids definitely do not predate the Flood--ed.)
not Noah and his family have carried this information with them into the Ark,
and transmitted it later to their descendants? According to the Babylonian
version of the Flood, the "Chaldean" Noah was made to bury his books
before the Flood, and then disentomb them after emerging from the Ark. But
there is still another possibility: Could this knowledge have come from the
second eruption of the Nephilim, which occurred after the Flood?
we go further back, could one find a linkage between this esoteric knowledge
and the "tree of knowledge" found in the Garden of Eden? We know
that this was the one tree whose fruit Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat, or
even touch (Genesis 2:17, 3:3). Why was this tree so named? Few commentators
have shed any light on its meaning. Many dismiss the account as mere
symbolism, without even telling us what the symbolism is supposed to
represent. Others look upon the passage as poetry; conveniently forgetting
poetry is often the truest history. It not only relates facts but interprets
them as well. Poetry has been described as "history written from the
inside rather than from the outside, and therefore incomparably truer. (13) Or
in the words of British author Graham Green, "Poetry is the photography
of the invisible."
we applied this principle to the "tree of knowledge." If it is a
symbol, then obviously it must be a symbol of something. Or if poetry, then it
must convey some inner truth. But why should one speculate and search for
cryptic meanings when the truth may well be on the surface. Obviously, the
"tree of knowledge" must have something to do with knowledge, or why
should it be so named? It undoubtedly contained the key to certain divinely
classified material that God did not want early man to possess. But somehow,
and it could well be by means of the Nephilim, early man did come to possess
that knowledge--at least a part of it.
was knowledge that primitive man could never have discovered on his own.
Indeed, it was knowledge beyond the capacity of modern man! Kelly Segraves
reminds us: "With all our intelligences, we cannot figure out how
pyramids were constructed." (14)
true, the construction of the pyramids has been reviewed and re-examined in
recent years. No supernormal or supernatural factors need to be invoked to
explain their construction--ed.)
ask again, could this intelligence have been transmitted by the "sons of
is not the only country that has pyramids. A whole network of them can be
found around the planet--in Cambodia, Shen Shi, China, Thailand, Mexico,
Nazca, Yucatan, Alaska...How does one account for such advanced scientific
technology, on such a universal scale, and in such prehistoric times?
the answer be man's longevity at that time? The average age span before the
Flood was close to nine hundred years-- thirteen times the proverbial
"three score and ten." This, of course, provided exceptional
opportunity for learning, research, experimentation and the accumulation of
knowledge. If only modern-day scientists could live that long! But longevity
alone could never account for the specialized knowledge that our forefathers
possessed. Their awesome expertise indicates a source outside of themselves.
No other viable explanation can be offered except that mankind was
pre-programmed from the depths of space.
Bible not only supplies the key to the source of this knowledge, but to the
way it was transmitted--space-beings called "fallen-angels." As we
have seen, such extraterrestrials possess superior knowledge. This they
transmitted to man in direct contradiction to God's wishes.
Satan, the leader of fallen angels, is himself a creature of rare
brilliance and inimitable genius. The Latin translation of his name,
"Lucifer" (from the Hebrew "Helel"), comes from a root
meaning "brilliance" or "magnificence." This is a trait he
shares with his cohorts. He and they have access to classified, divine
information, and are cognizant of hidden things (See Acts 16:16, 17).
to Professor C. S. Dickerson, "The source of their knowledge is found in
their superior created nature and in their vast experience, as they lived
through many thousands of years observing and collecting information."
L. Nevius, after surveying demon possession in China, documents the amazing
knowledge revealed by the demon- possessed: "Many persons while demon
possessed give evidence of knowledge which cannot be accounted for in ordinary
ways. They often appear to know of the Lord Jesus as a divine person and show
an aversion to, and a fear of Him. They sometimes converse in foreign
languages of which in their normal states they are entirely ignorant."
AND BARNEY HILL
and Barney Hill of New Hampshire, while returning home from a vacation in
Canada in 1961, spotted a flying saucer and pulled off the road to watch it
land. The engine of their car went dead, but they have no recollection of what
happened after that. The next thing they remembered was being close to home...
sixty miles south! After this bizarre experience, they suffered from
nightmares, anxiety syndromes and ulcers. They finally consulted a
psychiatrist, the noted Dr. Benjamin Simon of Boston. By the use of hypnosis,
he was able to induce from them--quite independently of each other--the story
of those missing hours. Both told the same story. Taken aboard the flying
saucer, they underwent physical examination by the humanoid occupants. Tape
recordings were made of their story (given under hypnosis), and a book was
published. Later, an NBC television movie was made of the event.
T. Friedman, a nuclear physicist, studied these reports and was greatly
impressed. But what finally convinced him was the map drawn in 1964 by Betty
Hill of a star system unknown to science at the time. Betty claimed that she
had been shown this map aboard the UFO, and revealed the details of it under
hypnosis. The astronomers who examined the map at that time, dismissed it. But
since 1964 new evidence has appeared on the subject--star systems that were
invisible in 1964 have now been discovered. And an amazing fact has come to
light. Dr. Friedman explains: "Using
these new data, a computer came up with a map of the Zeta Reticuli
system--faint stars 220 trillion miles away - which astronomers agree matches
Mrs. Hill's precisely." (17)
in wickedness is another distinction of the Nephilim. Sired by demonic beings,
their character and activity certainly reveal the nature of the "fallen
of the legends surrounding the cross breeding between the natural and the
supernatural depict subhuman behaviour. To the last one, the semi-gods of
mythology--Zeus (the Roman Jupiter), Poseidon (Neptune), Eros (Cupid), Hermes
(Mercury)--were violent, wanton, lustful and promiscuous beyond restraint.
They constantly engaged in sex orgies and seduction, and produced the
strangest of offspring. Emil Gaverluk tells of Zeus:
"He disregarded marriage laws and engaged in love affairs with
members of both sexes. Zeus married Hera, his sister. One of the loves of Zeus
was Europa. He seduced her by becoming a bull and carrying her away. Another
was Leda, daughter of Thestios, King of Aetolia and the wife of Tyndereus,
King of Sparta. But this did not stop Zeus...Athene was the daughter of Metis
by Zeus. Metis tried to evade him. He seduced her. She warned him that if he
did this again and the child was a male, that child would depose and conquer
him. Zeus didn't like the sound of this and took no chances. He swallowed the
child whole. Zeus' amorous victories illustrate the actions of uncontrolled
spirit-beings lusting after human flesh." (18)
is only one example from Greek mythology of the evil associations between
spirit-entities from space and human beings from Earth. But it was not only
the spirit-beings who acted this way; they seem to have passed on the trait to
their descendants. The Nephilim,
in this respect more than in anything else, were close imitators of their
fathers. They reflected the works of their demon ancestry. And just as there
are degrees of goodness among the saints, so there are degrees of evil among
the demons. Evidence of this is recorded in Matthew 12:43-45. It tells of the
unclean spirit returning to occupy the house from which he had been displaced,
and returns with "seven other spirits more wicked than himself."
of the degree of evil, all demons are regarded by God as vile and depraved. A
recurring biblical adjective is "unclean" (Matthew 10:1, Mark 1:27,
3:11). These spirits are both morally and spiritually unclean, and the same
distinctive applies to their progeny on Earth. What is more, those who traffic
with such beings, frequently end up like them. Indeed such is the degree of
their degradation that the Lord abandons them to their own depravity. Romans
1:24-32 graphically states that "God gave them up." The depths of
their degradation and the infamy of their immoralities, puts them on a level
lower than animals. Abandoned by God to the consequences of their wickedness,
and deranged by demonic harassment, people have been driven to insane asylums
and even to suicide.
it any wonder when incorrigible spirit-beings and rebellious humans cooperated
to pollute Earth, to seek genetic control and produce hybrids that threatened
the race itself, and even tried to thwart the very plan of God, that God
should intervene in a judgment terrible to behold?
Nephilim were giants in pride also. Lord Acton claimed that power corrupts,
and absolute power corrupts absolutely, as does knowledge. With their superior
intelligence and knowledge, the Nephilim soon succumbed to the sin that became
the downfall of Lucifer--pride (1 Timothy 3:6). Like Lucifer, his followers
also dreamed of being gods, desiring to control and rule the Earth. Their
advanced knowledge was the desired diet for their egotism. Such knowledge
wedded to an already arrogant nature led to self-deification. They craved
divine honours and religious worship. This was the ambition of Lucifer, of the
Nephilim, and of every fallen creature. They were propelled in all that they
did by self-will, self-determination, self-glorification, and ultimately
self-deification. No wonder Josephus refers to the Nephilim as "sons who
were overbearing and disdainful of every virtue."
fascination with the occult and otherworld phenomena is amazingly significant
today. At no other time has he been more conditioned to accept the possibility
of extraterrestrial life. Having once escaped his Mother Earth, man now
strains at his celestial tether, wondering what or who lies beyond the final
frontier. With this star ward look, the stage could be set for the coming of
the unwelcome guests from space. The "days of Noah" are again here;
perhaps even now agents from another realm are plotting the return of the

II: Sons of God, Daughters of Men
craving of demons for a body, evident in the Gospels, offers at least some
parallel to this hunger for sexual experience." -Derek Kidner
1947 an Arab boy tending his sheep accidentally discovered an ancient cave
near the Dead Sea. In it were found a priceless collection of ancient scrolls,
which soon became known as the Dead Sea Scrolls or the Qumran Texts. Among
these writings was one known as the Genesis Apocryphon. At first it was
thought to be the long lost Book of Lamech. Although the scroll consisted of a
speech by Lamech and a story about some of the patriarchs from Enoch to
Abraham; it was not that book.
to the Bible, Lamech was the son of Methuselah and the father of Noah. He was
the ninth of the ten patriarchs of the antediluvian world.
It is significant, however, that the Genesis Apocryphon mentions the
Nephilim, and makes reference to the "sons of God" and the
"daughters of men" introduced in Genesis 6. The Apocryphon also
elaborates considerably on the succinct statements found in the Bible, and
provides valuable insights into the way these ancient stories were interpreted
by the ancient Israelites.
The copy of the Genesis Apocryphon discovered at Qumran dates back to the 2nd century B.C., but it was obviously based on much older sources. When discovered in 1947, it had been much mutilated from the ravages of time and humidity. The sheets had become so badly stuck together that years passed before the text was deciphered and made known. When scholars finally made public its content, the document confirmed that celestial beings from the skies had landed on planet Earth. More than that, it told how these beings had mated with Earth-women and had begat giants.
this story myth or history, fable or fact? Specialized research has revealed
that many ancient legends have a basis in fact. But to answer the question,
let us consult the most authoritative document known to man--the Bible.
Genesis 6:1-4 the "sons of God" are captivated by the beauty of the
"daughters of men." They subsequently marry them and produce an
offspring of giants known as the Nephilim. Genesis goes on to say that these
Nephilim were "mighty men" and "men of renown."
"Sons of God"? "Daughters of men"? What sort of
beings were these? Were they human or did they belong to an alien species from
THE SONS OF GOD
is no problem in identifying the "daughters of men" for this is a
familiar method of designating women in the Bible. The problem lies with the
"sons of God." Three major interpretations have been offered to shed
light on this cryptic designation. First,
a group within Orthodox Judaism theorized that "sons of God" meant
"nobles" or "magnates." Hardly anyone today accepts this
potentially dangerous view.
some interpret the "sons of God" as fallen angels. These were
enticed by the women of Earth and began lusting after them. Many reputable
Bible commentators have rejected this theory on psycho-physiological grounds.
How can one believe, they ask, that angels from Heaven could engage in sexual
relations with women from Earth? Philastrius labelled such an interpretation a
many famed scholars contend that the "sons of God" are the male
descendants of Seth, and that the "daughters of men" are the female
descendants of Cain. According to this view, what actually happened in Genesis
6 was an early example of believers marrying unbelievers. The good sons of
Seth married the bad daughters of Cain, and the result of these mixed
marriages was a mongrel offspring. These later became known for their
decadence and corruption; indeed, it reached such a degree that God was forced
to intervene and destroy the human race. This comment of Matthew Henry could
be taken as representative of those holding this view:
"The sons of Seth (that is the professors of religion) married the daughters of men, that is, those that were profane, and strangers to God and godliness. The posterity of Seth did not keep by themselves, as they ought to have done. They inter- mingled themselves with the excommunicated race of Cain." (1)
in spite of the excellent pedigree of the proponents of this theory, their
argument is not convincing. Their interpretation is pure eisegesis--they are
guilty of reading into the text what is obviously not there.
Their interpretation fails on other grounds as well. At no time, before the Flood or after, has God destroyed or threatened to destroy the human race for the sin of "mixed marriages." It is impossible to reconcile this extreme punishment with the mere verbal strictures found elsewhere in the Bible for the same practice. If God is going to be consistent, He should have destroyed the human race many times over!
contrast made in Genesis 6:2 is not between the descendants of Seth and the
descendants of Cain, but between the "sons of God" and the
"daughters of men." If by "sons of God" is meant
"sons of Seth," then only the sons of Seth engaged in mixed
marriages, and not the daughters. And only the daughters of Cain were
involved, and not the sons. And another strange assumption is implied: that
only the sons of Seth were godly, and only the daughters of Cain were evil.
The strangeness is compounded when one seeks for evidence that the sons of Seth were godly. We know from Genesis that when the time came for God to destroy the human race, He found only one godly family left among them--that of Noah. Where were all the other supposedly godly sons of Seth? Even Seth's own son could hardly be called righteous. His name was Enos, meaning "mortal" or "frail." And he certainly lived up to it! Genesis 4:26 reads, "And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord." That statement seems harmless enough, but what does it mean when it says that it was only now that men began to call upon the name of the Lord? Upon whom did Adam call? And Abel? And Seth himself?
scholars give us a more literal and exact translation to this verse:
"Then men began to call themselves by the name of Jehovah." Other
scholars translate the statement in this manner: "Then men began to call
upon their gods (idols) by the name of Jehovah." If either of these were
the correct translation then the evidence for the so-called godly line of Seth
is non- existent. The truth of the matter is that Enos and his line, with few
noted exceptions, were as ungodly as the other line. The divine record could
not be clearer: "all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth"
In the Old Testament, the designation "sons of God" (bene Elohim) is never used of humans, but always of supernatural beings that are higher than man but lower than God. To fit such a category only one species is known--angels. And the term "sons of God" applies to both good and bad angels. These are the beings of whom Augustine wrote: "Like the gods they have corporeal immortality, and passions like human beings." (2)
designation "sons of God" is used four other times in the Old
Testament, each time referring to angels. One example is Daniel 3:25, where
king Nebuchadnezzar looks into the fiery furnace and sees four men, "and
the form of the fourth is like the Son of God." The translation is
different and clearer in our modern versions, "like a son of the
gods." Since Jesus had not yet become the "only begotten son"
of God, this "son" would have had to be angelic.
example is Job 38:7 which says the sons of God shouted for joy when God laid
the foundations of the Earth. Angels are the only entities that fit this
designation since man had not been created at that time!
In Job 1:6 and Job 2:1 the "sons of God" came to present
themselves before the Lord in Heaven. Among the sons of God is Satan--a
further implication that the "sons of God" must have been angels.
the designation "sons of God" is consistently used in the Old
Testament for angels, it is logical to conclude that the term in Genesis 6:2
also refers to angels.
OF GOD: THREE CATEGORIES
the New Testament, born-again believers in Christ are called the children of
God or the sons of God (Luke 3:38, John 1:12, Romans 8:14, 1 John 3:1). Dr.
Bullinger in the Companion Bible states: "It is only by the divine
specific act of creation that any created being can be called 'a son of
God.'" This explains why every born-again believer is a son of God. It
explains also why Adam was a Son of God. Adam was specifically created by God,
"in the likeness of God made He him" (Genesis 5:1). Adam's
descendants, however, were different; they were not made in God's likeness but
in Adam's. Adam "begat a son in his own likeness, after his image"
was a "son of God," but Adam's descendants were "sons of
men." Lewis Sperry Chafer
expresses this in an interesting way when he states:
"In the Old Testament terminology angels are called sons of God
while men are called servants of God. In the New Testament this is reversed.
Angels are the servants and Christians are the sons of God." (3)
is thus clear that the term "sons of God" in the Bible is limited to
three categories of beings: angels, Adam and believers. All three are special
and specific creations of God. As for the use of the term in Genesis 6, since
it cannot possibly refer to Adam nor believers in Christ, we conclude that it
has to refer to the angels whom God had created.
FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT
New Testament passages shed further light on Genesis 6. They are Jude 6-7 and
2 Peter 2:4. These verses indicate that at some point in time a number of
angels fell from their pristine state and proceeded to commit a sexual sin
that was both unusual and repugnant. Jude 6-7 states:
"And the angels which kept not
their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in
everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as
Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves
over to fornication, and going after strange flesh..."
angels not only failed to keep their original dominion and authority, but they
"left their own habitation." Habitation is a significant word: it
means "dwelling place" or "heaven." And the addition of
the Greek word "idion" ("their own") means that they left
their own private, personal, unique possession. (4) Heaven was the private,
personal residence of the angels. It was not made for man but for the angels.
This is why the ultimate destination of the saints will not be Heaven but the
new and perfect Earth which God will create (Revelation 21:1-3). Heaven is
reserved for the angels, but as for the beings referred to in Jude 6-7, they
only did these angels leave Heaven, they left it once-for- all. The Greek verb
"apoleipo" is in the aorist tense, thus indicating a once-for-all
act. By taking the action they did, these angels made a final and
irretrievable decision. They crossed the Rubicon. Their action, says Kenneth
Wuest, "was apostasy with a vengeance." (5)
to the specific sin of these angels, we are given the facts in Jude 7. As in
the case of Sodom and Gomorrah it was the sin of "fornication" and
it means "going after strange flesh." "Strange" flesh
means flesh of a different kind (Greek "heteros"). To commit this
particularly repugnant sin, the angels had to abandon their own domain and
invade a realm that was divinely forbidden to them. Says Wuest: "These
angels transgressed the limits of their own natures to invade a realm of
created beings of a different nature." (6)
confirms: "It was a
departure from the appointed course of nature and seeking after that which is
unnatural, to other flesh than that appointed by God for the fulfilment of
natural desire." The
mingling of these two orders of being, was contrary to what God had intended,
and summarily led to God's greatest act of judgment ever enacted upon the
New Testament verse may have bearing on Genesis 6. In I Corinthians 11:10,
Paul instructs that a woman should cover her head as a sign of subjection to
her husband, and also "because of the angels." This observation has
intrigued commentators through the years. Why this sudden reference to angels?
Could it be a reference to what happened in Genesis 6 where angels succumbed
to the inducements and physical charm of the women of Earth? Obviously, Paul
believed that an uncovered woman was a temptation even to angels. William
Barclay mentions an old rabbinic tradition, which alleges that it was the
beauty of the women's long hair that attracted and tempted the angels in
offspring of this union between the "sons of God" and the
"daughters of men" were so extraordinary that it indicates an
unusual parentage. In no way could the progenitors of such beings be ordinary
humans. Their mothers possibly could be human, or their fathers, but certainly
not both. Either the father or the mother had to be superhuman. Only in such a
way can one account for the extraordinary character and prowess of the
offspring. God's law of
reproduction, according to the biblical account of creation, is
"everything after his kind." God's law makes it impossible
for giants to be produced by normal parentage. To produce such monstrosities
as the Nephilim presupposes super- natural parentage.
is a Hebrew word translated in the Authorized King James version as
"giants." "There were giants in the earth in those days"
(Genesis 6:4). It is true that they were giants in more senses than one.
However, the word Nephilim does not mean "giants." It comes from the
root "naphal," meaning "fallen ones," and most modern
versions of the Bible have left the word "Nephilim" untranslated.
the Greek Septuagint was made, "Nephilim" was translated as
"gegenes." This word suggests "giants" but actually it has
little reference to size or strength. "Gegenes" means "earth
born." The same term was used to describe the mythical "Titans"
-- being partly of celestial and partly of terrestrial origin. (7)
Hebrew and the Greek words do not exclude the presence of great physical
strength. Indeed, a combined supernatural and natural parentage would imply
such a characteristic. Angels, according to Scripture, are known for their
power. They are often referred to as "sons of the Mighty" (Psalm
103:20). Therefore, if the ones who sired them were strong and mighty, it
could be assumed that their offspring were likewise.
evidence exists in Scripture that the offspring of mixed marriages (believers
and unbelievers) were giants, excelling in great strength and might. No
evidence can be found anywhere in history for that matter. Such an
interpretation poses impossible assumptions.
the word "Nephilim" is used in Numbers 13:33, the question of size
and strength is explicit. Here we are left in no doubt as to their superhuman
prowess. When Joshua's spies reported back from Canaan, they called certain of
the inhabitants of Canaan "giants." "And there we saw the
Nephilim, the sons of Anak, which come of the Nephilim, and we were in our own
sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
commentators have speculated that the Nephilim of Numbers 13 belonged to a
second eruption of fallen angels, since the earlier Nephilim had been
destroyed in the Flood. And they see an allusion to this in Genesis 6:4, where
it states that "there were Nephilim in the earth in those days; and also
after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men."
Could it be that the "after that" was a reference to the Nephilim
found in Canaan during the Israelite entry into the land? If so, it could
explain why the Lord commanded the total extermination of the Canaanites, as
He had earlier ordered the near annihilation of the human race.
-- NO RESURRECTION
Book of Isaiah says that the Nephilim and their descendants will not
participate in a resurrection as is the portion of ordinary mortals. Isaiah
26:14 reads: "They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they
shall not rise." The original Hebrew word translated "deceased"
here is the word "Rephaim." It would have saved a lot of
misinterpretation if the translators had left the word as it was in the
original. The verse actually reads: "Dead, they shall not live; Rephaim,
they shall not rise." The Rephaim are generally understood to be one of
the branches of the Nephilim, and God's Word makes it clear that they are to
partake in no resurrection. But with humans it is different: all humans will
be resurrected either to life or to damnation (John 5:28-29). (Note: the
Nephilim had human mothers, but no human fathers, so they were not considered
members of Adam's race. Only the members of Adam's race are offered
redemption--the angels are not. Thus when they died the Nephilim spirits could
have become disembodied and free to roam, seeking other bodies of men or
animals to possess and dwell in. It has been suggested that this group of
fallen spirits is responsible for the phenomenon of demon possession in the
have already seen that the Greek Version of the Old Testament (The Septuagint)
translated "Nephilim" as "gegenes;" we shall now inquire
how it translates "sons of God." In some of the manuscripts it is
left as "sons of God," but in the others-- including the Alexandrian
text--it is rendered by the word "angelos." This text was in
existence in the time of Christ, but there is no indication that He ever
corrected or queried it. Can we not assume from His silence that He agreed
with the translation!
OF THE TEXT
Having studied all the arguments in favour of "sons of Seth," one concludes that the only argument that is valid among them is that of rationality. "Sons of Seth" is an interpretation that is more palatable to human reason. Reason can never subscribe to the incredible notion that fallen angels could have sex relations with women of Earth. Angels have no physical bodies! They do not marry! They belong to an entirely different species of being! The mind revolts against such absurdity. So, what does one do? Settle, of course, for an easy, rational interpretation--sons of Seth and daughters of Cain. But what if the meaning of Scripture is clearly otherwise? There is the rub! Scripture is clearly otherwise! To impose a human interpretation at the expense of the obvious meaning of the divine Word, is a rape of the biblical text. Furthermore, when one deals with the world of the supernatural, rationality is never an argument.
the most conclusive argument for interpreting the expression as
"angels" is the simplest one of all. If the writer of Genesis wanted
to refer to the "sons of Seth" he would have just said so. If God
had intended that meaning, then the verse would undoubtedly read, "the
sons of Seth saw the daughters of Cain that they were fair..." But the
Bible meant something far more sinister--the sexual union between angels from
Hell and evil women from Earth. Because of the gravity of such a union, and
its dire consequences for the human race, God moved to destroy the race before
it could destroy itself--except for one family which had not been
made man in His own image, the highest of all His earthly creations. While God
said that everything He made was good, He considered man very good. Man had
been made for fellowship with God Himself, but he soon turned his back upon
his Maker and worshipped the creature more than the Creator. Before many
generations, the human race was being polluted by this abominable union with
demons. It seemed that Hell and Earth were in league together against the God
of Heaven. God's righteous anger was such that He regretted having made man.
"And God saw that the wickedness
of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of
his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made
man. ..."(Genesis 6:5-6)
was specifically because of this ultimate sin that God brought about a deluge
of such magnitude that man and beast were drowned from the face of the Earth.
In the words of old Joseph Hall: "The
world was so grown foul with sin, that God saw it was time to wash it with a
flood: and so close did wickedness cleave to the authors of it, that when they
were washed to nothing, yet it would not wash off, yea, so deep did it stick
in the very grain of the earth, that God saw it meet to let it soak long under
the waters." (14)
Noah and his immediate family were the only ones immune from this great
judgment is significant. Genesis 6:9 says, "Noah was a just man." He
stood out as an example of righteousness and godliness in a perverse age. Like
Enoch before him, Noah also "walked with God." But there was another
reason why Noah was spared, one that seems to have escaped most commentators.
Genesis 6:9 says that Noah was "perfect in his generation." Does
this mean moral and spiritual perfection? Hardly. Genesis 9:20-23 disproves
any such perfection. What, then, does the Bible mean by calling him
"perfect"? The Hebrew word is "tamiym" and comes from the
root word "taman." This means "without blemish" as in
Exodus 12:5, 29:1, Leviticus 1:3. Just as the sacrificial lamb had to be
without any physical blemish, so Noah's perfection. In its primary meaning, it
refers not to any moral or spiritual quality, but to physical purity. Noah
was uncontaminated by the alien invaders.
alone had preserved their pedigree and kept it pure, in spite of prevailing
corruption brought about by the fallen angels. (15) And again: Noah's
bloodline had remained free of genetic contamination. (16)
This implies, of course, that all the other families on Earth had been
contaminated by the Nephilim. It also proves that the assault of Satan on the
human race had been far more extensive than realized. It is no wonder that God
pronounced such a universal fiat of judgment.
As for the fallen angels who participated in the abomination, God put
them in custody "in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment
of the great day" (Jude 6). This is sometimes interpreted as Tartarus or
the "nether realms" (2 Peter 2:4). This would also explain why some
fallen angels are in custody and why others are free to roam the heavens and
torment mankind. Such a drastic
punishment, both for men and angels, presupposed a drastic sin, something
infinitely more evil and more sinister than mixed marriages. It was nothing
less than the demonic realm attempting to pervert the human world. By genetic
control and the production of hybrids, Satan was out to rob God of the
people He had made for Himself.
Satan had succeeded in corrupting the human race, he would have hindered the
coming of the perfect Son of God, the promised "seed of the woman,"
who would defeat Satan and restore man's dominion (Genesis 3:15). If Satan had
by any means prevented that birth, he would obviously have averted his own
doom. Satan did succeed to a large extent. It was for this reason that God
drowned mankind in the Deluge.
the "sons of God" as fallen angels, the question immediately
arises--do angels marry? In Matthew 22:30, Jesus said angels neither marry nor
are given in marriage. This seems a clear and emphatic negative. However, it
does not preclude the possibility of such a thing happening--obviously
contrary to the will of God. And it does not preclude fallen angels, who had
rebelled against God already, from cohabiting with women of Earth, as the
Scriptures state. Some interpret
the words of Jesus as meaning that angels do not marry among themselves. Is it
because they are all male? Or is it because celestial beings are deathless and
thus need no offspring. Only terrestrial beings need to find immortality in
their children. (17) But if they do not need to marry and procreate, is it
still possible that they could engage in sexual acts? If not among themselves
then with human spouses? Jude seems quite explicit on the matter: the angels
left their own habitation, and gave themselves over to fornication, going
after strange flesh. In other words, they were capable of performing human
functions--eating, drinking, walking, talking, even sexual activity and
fact that angels do not marry does not in itself prove they are sexless.
Throughout the Bible, angels are referred to only as men. Finis Drake writes:
"It is logical to say...that the female was created specifically for the
human race in order that it could be kept in existence; and that all angels
were created males, in as much as their kind is kept in existence without the
reproduction process. Angels were created innumerable to start with (Hebrews
12:22) whereas, the human multitudes began with one pair." (18) Even in
the next world, when the saints will dwell in their resurrection body and live
forever, it does not imply that they will be sexless. The Bible teaches that
everyone will have his own body in the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:35-38).
No suggestion is made that they will be unsexed. Furthermore, Christ remained
a man after His resurrection.
other question has been raised. If the fallen angels who lusted after women of
Earth in Genesis 6 have been interred in Tartarus with "everlasting
chains," how does one explain the demons who have been operating since
then? They seemed to have been quite active during the ministry of Jesus, and
are busy again in our day. Following this reasoning, some share the conclusion
of Kent Philpott: However one
might wish to interpret Genesis 6: 1-4 to link this passage with the verses in
2 Peter and Jude seems to post far more problems than it would solve. But 2
Peter 2.4 and Jude 6 clearly assert that the rebellious angels are being kept
prisoner in the "nether gloom." If they are prisoners, they could
not very well function as the demons are described as functioning in the New
Testament. (19) But Philpott
failed to see that there are two categories of fallen angels: Those cast out
of Heaven with Lucifer, and who are still free to torment mankind; and those
who fell the second time by committing carnal acts with the daughters of men.
The spirits in this second category are those chained in the nether regions.
seems clear to me that the "sons of God" are none other than fallen
angels, and, because of their further sin of lusting after the "daughters
of men," many (of the responsible angels) were imprisoned by God. Both
the near annihilation of the human race and the incarceration of the fallen
angels in Tartarus indicate the magnitude of the sin they committed. By such
drastic judgment, God saved the human race from a calamity worse than the
physical death originally imposed upon them.

public does not seem at all aware of the fact that the scientific
establishment has a double standard when it comes to the free flow of
information. In essence, it goes like this... Scientists are highly educated,
well trained and intellectually capable of processing all types of
information, and they can make the correct critical distinctions between fact
and fiction, reality and fantasy. The unwashed public is simply incapable of
functioning on this high mental plane.
noble ideal of the scientist as a highly trained, impartial, apolitical
observer and assembler of established facts into a useful body of knowledge
seems to have been shredded under the pressures and demands of the real world.
Science has produced many positive benefits for society; but we should know by
now that science has a dark, negative side. Didn't those meek fellows in the
clean lab coats give us nuclear bombs and biological weapons? The age of
innocence ended in World War II.
the scientific community has an attitude of intellectual superiority is thinly
veiled under a carefully orchestrated public relations guise. We always see
Science and Progress walking hand in hand. Science as an institution in a
democratic society has to function in the same way as the society at large; it
should be open to debate, argument and counter-argument. There is no place for
unquestioned authoritarianism. Is modern science meeting these standards?
the Fall of 2001, PBS aired a seven-part series, titled Evolution.
Taken at face value, that seems harmless enough. However, while the program
was presented as pure, objective, investigative science journalism, it
completely failed to meet even minimum standards of impartial reporting. The
series was heavily weighted towards the view that the theory of evolution is
"a science fact" that is accepted by "virtually all reputable
scientists in the world", and not a theory that has weaknesses and strong
series did not even bother to interview scientists who have criticisms of
Darwinism: not "creationists" but bona fide scientists. To
correct this deficiency, a group of 100 dissenting scientists felt compelled
to issue a press release, "A Scientific Dissent on Darwinism", on
the day the first program was scheduled to go to air. Nobel nominee Henry
"Fritz" Schaefer was among them. He encouraged open public debate of
defenders of Darwinism embrace standards of evidence for evolution that as
scientists they would never accept in other circumstances.
have seen this same "unscientific" approach applied to archaeology
and anthropology, where "scientists" simply refuse to prove their
theories yet appoint themselves as the final arbiters of "the
facts". It would be naive to think that the scientists who cooperated in
the production of the series were unaware that there would be no
counter-balancing presentation by critics of Darwin's theory.
Milton is a science journalist. He had been an ardent true believer in
Darwinian doctrine until his investigative instincts kicked in one day. After
20 years of studying and writing about evolution, he suddenly realised that
there were many disconcerting holes in the theory. He decided to try to allay
his doubts and prove the theory to himself by using the standard methods of

painstakingly put every main tenet and classic proof of Darwinism to the test.
The results shocked him. He found that the theory could not even stand up to
the rigours of routine investigative journalism.
veteran science writer took a bold step and published a book titled The
Facts of Life: Shattering the Myths of Darwinism. It is clear that the
Darwinian myth had been shattered for him, but many more myths about science
would also be crushed after his book came out. Milton says:
experienced the witch-hunting activity of the Darwinist police at first hand.
It was deeply disappointing to find myself being described by a prominent
Oxford zoologist [Richard Dawkins] as "loony", "stupid"
and "in need of psychiatric help" in response to purely scientific
(Does this sound like stories that came out of the Soviet Union 20 years ago
when dissident scientists there started speaking out?)
launched a letter-writing campaign to newspaper editors, implying that Milton
was a "mole" creationist whose work should be dismissed. Anyone at
all familiar with politics will recognise this as a standard Machiavellian
by-the-book "character assassination" tactic. Dawkins is a highly
respected scientist, whose reputation and standing in the scientific community
carry a great deal of weight.
to Milton, the process came to a head when the London Times Higher
Education Supplement commissioned him to write a critique of Darwinism. The
publication foreshadowed his coming piece: "Next Week: Darwinism -
Richard Milton goes on the attack". Dawkins caught wind of this and
wasted no time in nipping this heresy in the bud. He contacted the editor,
Auriol Stevens, and accused Milton of being a "creationist", and
prevailed upon Stevens to pull the plug on the article. Milton learned of this
behind-the-scenes backstabbing and wrote a letter of appeal to Stevens. In the
end, she caved in to Dawkins and scratched the piece.
what would happen if a politician or bureaucrat used such pressure tactics to
kill a story in the mass media. It would ignite a huge scandal. Not so with
scientists, who seem to be regarded as "sacred cows" and beyond
reproach. There are many disturbing facts related to these cases. Darwin's
theory of evolution is the only theory routinely taught in our public school
system that has never been subjected to rigorous scrutiny; nor have any of the
criticisms been allowed into the curriculum.
is an interesting fact, because a recent poll showed that the American public
wants the theory of evolution taught to their children; however, "71 per
cent of the respondents say biology teachers should teach both Darwinism and
scientific evidence against Darwinian theory". Nevertheless, there are no
plans to implement this balanced approach.
is ironic that Richard Dawkins has been appointed to the position of Professor
of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University. He is a classic
"Brain Police" storm trooper, patrolling the neurological front
lines. The Western scientific establishment and mass media pride themselves on
being open public forums devoid of prejudice or censorship. However, no
television program examining the flaws and weaknesses of Darwinism has ever
been aired in Darwin's home country or in America. A scientist who opposes the
theory cannot get a paper published.

considered anomalous by the precepts of his theory of evolution.
to our bastions of intellectual integrity, Forest Mims was a solid and skilled
science journalist. He had never been the centre of any controversy and so he
was invited to write the most-read column in the prestigious Scientific
American, "The Amateur Scientist", a task he gladly accepted.
According to Mims, the magazine's editor Jonathan Piel then learned that he
also wrote articles for a number of Christian magazines. The editor called
Mims into his office and confronted him.

has the unpleasant odour of a witch-hunt. The writer never publicly broadcast
his private views or beliefs, so it would appear that the "storm
troopers" now believe they have orders to make sure
"unapproved" thoughts are never publicly disclosed.
OR NOT TABOO?
the monitors of "good thinking" are not just the elite of the
scientific community, as we have seen in several cases; they are television
producers and magazine editors as well. It seems clear that they are all
driven by the singular imperative of furthering "public science
education", as the president of the Cambrian Institute so aptly phrased
there is a second item on the agenda, and that is to protect the public from
"unscientific" thoughts and ideas that might infect the mass mind.
We outlined some of those taboo subjects at the beginning of the article; now
we should add that it is also "unwholesome" and
"unacceptable" to engage in any of the following research pursuits:
paranormal phenomena, UFOs, cold fusion, free energy and all the rest of the
"pseudo-sciences". Does this have a familiar ring to it? Are we
hearing the faint echoes of religious zealotry?
ever gave science the mission of engineering and directing the inquisitive
pursuits of the citizenry of the free world? It is all but impossible for any
scientific paper that has anti-Darwinian ramifications to be published in a
mainstream scientific journal. It is also just as impossible to get the
"taboo" subjects even to the review table, and you can forget about
finding your name under the title of any article in Nature unless you are a
credentialed scientist, even if you are the next Albert Einstein.
restate how this conspiracy begins, it is with two filters: credentials and
peer review. Modern science is now a maze of such filters set up to promote
certain orthodox theories and at the same time filter out that data already
prejudged to be unacceptable. Evidence and merit are not the guiding
principles; conformity and position within the established community have
replaced objectivity, access and openness.

15, 2002 -- Why have I only now found out about this?
We can argue about who is most to blame, but the facts remain the
same: Congress and the White House have been helping to
establish a theocracy in America. That's right, in America --
the nation that used to be a land of religious freedom.
And now, since the advent of the 9-11 war, the would-be leaders
of this theocracy are stronger than ever. Little stands
between them and the realization of their plans.
The Chabad Lubavitchers also rely on the works of renowned Jewish
teachers such as Maimonides. Of course they rely on the Torah;
but note that the word "Torah," in Jewish religious
discourse, is somewhat elastic; it can denote (1) the Pentateuch
(the first five books of the Old Testament), (2) the Old Testament
in its entirety, (3) the Old Testament in its entirety, and the
Talmud, and (4) the entire body of Jewish religious literature.
For contemporary Lubavitchers, the most admired is late Rabbi
Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the "Lubavitcher Rebbe," or
simply "the Rebbe." (Jewish people call a rabbi with whom
they have a close and personal relationship their "Rebbe."
Since I feel as though I have a close and personal relationship with
him -- having read much about him -- and since I am not Jewish, I
will use the Americanised form of the word and call Rabbi Schneerson
"the Reeb." )

different sort. They want to make all Jews -- Reform, Conservative

Jews like Lieberman and Reform Jews like Fleischer standing
side-by-side working the Lubavitcher program. Lubavitchers
don't want to convert non-Jews to Judaism -- they want Jews to
understand they are a class apart from everyone else.

Schneerson in a White House Proclamation.

According to this book, all non-Jews are totally satanic creatures 'in whom there is absolutely nothing good.' Even a non-Jewish embryo is qualitatively different from a Jewish one.

The late, highly revered Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the 'Lubavitcher Rebbe' who headed the Chabad movement and wielded great influence in Israel as well as in the U.S., explained that, 'The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: ‘Let us differentiate.’ Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have a case of ‘let us differentiate’ between totally different species. This is what needs to be said about the body: the body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of [members] of all nations of the world [i.e., Gentile people] . . . A non-Jew’s entire reality is only vanity. It is written, ‘And the strangers shall guard and feed your flocks’ (Isaiah 61:5). The entire creation [of a non-Jew] exists only for the sake of the Jews . . . '

SON OF GOD IS . . .
So we have now learned Jesus was not the Son of God, but a false prophet. Who is the Son of God, then?
In the book of Exodus, G-d openly proclaims His son to the world: "Thus says the L-rd: My firstborn son is Israel. 'Israel' is the Jewish people -- all of them. The Jews were chosen by G-d to be His special 'son,' to be, in the words of the Bible, 'a kingdom of priests and a holy nation' for the whole world . . .
Read "Who is the Son of G-d?"
If a heathen smites a Jew, he is worthy of death . . . He who smites an Israelite on the jaw, is as though he had thus assaulted the Divine Presence; for it is written, 'One who smiteth man [I.e., an Israelite] attacketh the Holy One.' (Sanhedrin, 58b.)
A Jew -- any Jew -- is the Divine Presence, the Holy One. Get it, dummy?
KING REEB . . .
The Rebbe is a direct descendant of King David and has received a true prophecy from G-d that we who are alive in this generation shall be the first in history to see the coming of the true messiah. Many Jews are eagerly anticipating the Rebbe's resurrection from the grave, ready to re-establish the Sanhedrin and anoint the king.
HAS THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS
In our generation, the spiritual leader of the Jewish people--and
therefore of the whole world--is Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson
(known as the "Lubavitcher Rebbe"), in New York . . .Did
you catch that -- the Reeb is the leader of the Jewish people AND
THEREFORE THE WHOLE WORLD. So now we see how the Pyramid of
Power is shaking out. From "Who is the Son of G-d?"
AND BUSH INVENT HISTORY
Now let's go back in time to the reign of Bush I, when Congress
passed, and Bush signed, Joint House Resolution 104, Public Law
102-14. In House Joint Resolution 104, the birthday of Rabbi
Menachem Schneerson, March 26, 1991, was designated as
"Education Day, USA." You may have noticed that in 2002,
the Rebbe's birthday was on March 25, not March 26. More of
that later. Here is JHR 104, Public Law 102-14:
Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great Nation was founded . . .
Ah! You think they're going to mention, perhaps, the great
Christian precept "do unto others as you would have them do
unto you," or even the Ten Commandments?
I am a real Christian . . . a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus . . .
To see Jefferson's comments in context, go to: <
Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws . . .
Naugahyde Laws? No, that's not Naugahyde, that's Noahide .
. . Never heard of them! What are they?
WOULD YOU BELIEVE . . .
Explanation No. 1: "Noahide" is the adjectival form of "Noah." So perhaps God passed down laws to Noah that somehow we overlooked? No, I just scrutinized Genesis in my King James version, and on two Bible Internet search engines. God did not pass down seven laws to Noah, and Noah did not pass down seven laws to anyone else.
All of these laws are derived from specific passages in the Torah, which G-d gave to the Jewish people at Mt. Sinai.
Let's try to be logical. Noah lived and died in Genesis.
Mt. Sinai is not mentioned in Genesis. Moses lived in Exodus
and beyond. God handed over the Ten Commandments to Moses at
Mt. Sinai, in Exodus. Therefore God could not have given Noah these
laws at Mt. Sinai, for Noah had already died, back in Genesis.
And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
But as you can see, there is not one mention of seven laws in
that verse, despite what the Talmudic sages tell us.
All of these laws are derived from specific passages in the Torah, which G-d gave to the Jewish people at Mt. Sinai.
Ah! The operant word is "derived." The Pharisee
scholars derived, or reasoned, the laws into existence.
So . . . just as Athena sprang from the head of Zeus, so the Noahide
laws sprang from the heads of the Pharisees.
Our Rabbis taught: seven precepts were the sons of Noah commanded: social laws; (5) to refrain from blasphemy, idolatry; adultery; bloodshed; robbery; and eating flesh cut from a living animal (1) . . .
Footnote 5, for the above passage, says: "I.e., to establish
courts of justice, or, perhaps, to observe social justice
(Nahmanides on Gen. XXXIV, 13): Hast. Dict. (s.v. Noachian precepts)
translates 'obedience to authority.'"
These commandments may be regarded as the foundations of all human and moral progress. Judaism has both a national and a universal outlook in life. In the former sense it is particularistic, SETTING UP A PEOPLE DISTINCT AND SEPARATE FROM OTHERS (emphasis added) by its peculiar religious law. But in the latter, it recognises that moral progress and its concomitant Divine love and approval are the privilege and obligation of all mankind. And hence the Talmud lays down the seven Noachian precepts, by the observance of which all mankind may attain spiritual perfection, and without which moral death must inevitably ensue. That perhaps is the idea underlying the assertion (passim) that a heathen is liable to death for the neglect of any of these . . .
Let's pause here for a moment and notice the phrase I put in
emphasis: " . . . setting up a people distinct and
separate from others . . . "
YOUR NEW RELIGION, PART II

most important message anyone will ever read, as it may make the difference in
where they will spend ALL of eternity.
