The Whig theory of history began in the early to mid 19th century, and it has taken over: it's still with us. It's still dominant despite criticisms in the 1930s and '40s. Basically, the Whig theory of history is that history is an inevitable march upward into the light. In other words, step by step, the world always progresses, and this progress is inevitable. (Rothbard lecture: Ideologies and Theories of History, 1986, emphasis added)
I remember believing this paradigm as a public school kid growing up in the 1980s. It was assumed that racism, bigotry, violence, poverty, crime, and other societal ills would lessen as time marched on. And it was a no-brainer that technology, medicine, and standards of living would only get better as we kids grew older. We were told that life expectancy would keep increasing with technology, and there would be many comforts that would come to us that were not previously available to past generations. Technology has increased for sure, but does that represent progress? The coming Beast system cannot happen without certain technological advances, and it will be anything but "progressive" in the literal sense of that word. The truth, as Rothbard points out in the lecture series linked above, is that the Whigs and Progressives were wrong: history is not some "inevitable upward march into the light...," it's a crapshoot, a perilous descent into unchartered territory, a chaotic jumble of people, places, and events, an iconic struggle between liberty and power. If an institution or government espouses a narrative that is varnished and squeaky clean, you can know that at best they are hiding details, and at worst deliberately lying to you... no such thing happens in history.
History is nothing but the individual and collective sum of human action, or in other words, the consequences of human choices. And it's a mess... a big... complicated one. In contrast to the Whig theory of history, the prophecies in scripture paint a much different picture of the future, one far more ominous. But with that foreboding comes a glimmer of hope, because light does not come through men who lead civilizations through time, light comes from God. And we are promised that when the "whole earth shall be in commotion... and when the times of the gentiles is come in, a light shall break forth among those who sit in darkness" (T&C 31:6). That light shall be the fulness of Christ's gospel, with an accompanying Spirit that will help us navigate the events that will be coming on the earth, events that are explained in coded language in scriptural prophecy. Although it was not meant for us to fully understand the events before they happen, there is enough in scripture to help us prepare and avoid deception by false prophets and false miracles that will deceive many before Christ's return.
The Book of Mormon is the key to understanding the prophecies of the last days, especially the words of Isaiah repeated by Nephi, Jacob, and Christ Himself. Jesus gave away the biggest clue in grasping what Isaiah wrote when he told the Nephites the following:
And now behold, I say unto you that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently, for great are the words of Isaiah. For surely he spake as touching all things concerning my people which are of the house of Israel. And all things that he spake hath been and shall be, even according to the words which he spake. (3 Nephi 10:4, RE, emphasis added)
Did you catch the clue? Isaiah spoke of things that hath been and shall be. In other words, he used coded language to tie the Jewish past in with the American/Gentile and Jewish present. The names and places he uses are ancient, but the application of his words are modern. I believe this is what Nephi meant when he said that his people didn't understand Isaiah because he had not taught them, "the manner of prophesying among the Jews." The other Old Testament prophets use similar language: a blend of past history with future prophesy in no apparent order or coherency. It's a gigantic jigsaw puzzle, meant to be assembled piece by piece until a picture begins to form. I believe the Lord had the Jewish prophets write this way for at least two reasons: one, to give us a cursory understanding of what is to transpire in the last days, and two, to get us familiar with Jewish history and culture to help us in our mission to recover them in the latter-days. (The Jews also used satire and humor in their prophesying, read this short blog post to learn a little more about that).
So what does all of this have to do with the coming Beast system? The truth is, no one knows exactly what that will look like, and all sorts of scenarios have been offered since John wrote Revelations. Some speculate today that technology will be utilized to manipulate humanity into a system of totalitarian slavery involving artificial intelligence, transhumanism, biotechnology, digital currency, and one-world government. I do not doubt that all of the above will be used as part of the Beast system (we know it will be a one-world government), but I don't want to waste writing space on my blog speculating on details the Lord has not revealed to us. I believe there were at least two reasons (and I'm sure there are more) why Nephi wasn't allowed to tell all of his vision of what John saw: one, if it was committed to writing and published Satan could simply change some of his tactics to bring it about and call God a liar, and two, if we know everything that is going to happen in the future it would diminish the test that we will be required to go through in choosing whether we will take the mark of the beast.
There has to be a choice, and it has to be made with faith. If we were given the answer before the test it would be too easy. I think that God expects us to spend years diligently attempting to assemble the pieces of the puzzle, line upon line, precept upon precept, until we have enough of the truth in our hearts to be able to withstand the temptation to take the mark. I believe that when this system is presented to the world, with its accompanying miracles, it will sound so good, it will be so logical, it will be so spiritual (Satan can appear as an angel of light), so aesthetically and carnally pleasing (a blend of spiritually and quantum physics), that it will be extremely difficult to resist. It will be presented as a solution to all of the world's problems, and just like in the days of Noah, there will be few who resist it. Remember, this is Satan's big moment in history, what he has been preparing for throughout the ages. His final chance to globally implement his agency-destroying plan in the flesh, his raison d'etre, his magnum opus, his one opportunity to force the entire world to fall down at his feet and worship him. You better believe that he is going to package it in a deal that you'll think you can't pass up. The soothing voices (all religions will go along with him) will tell you take the mark so you can eat and live, buy and sell, "let big brother take care of you," they will say, "he will make everything better, trust in him and go back to sleep"... and as soon as he assumes power, he will kill anyone who doesn't fall at his feet. It will be the ultimate bait and switch.
For all that has been speculated on this last-days event, the words of John comprise just a few short paragraphs. He writes:
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the powers of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and those therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceives those who dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast, saying to those who dwell on the earth that they should make an image to the beast which had the wound by a sword and did live.
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads, and that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom: let him that has understanding count the number of the beast, for is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred sixty-six. (Revelation 4:9-10, RE)
Giving life to an image is interesting imagery. Throughout scripture the Lord often chastises His people for worshipping dumb idols. The word dumb simply means that the idol does not speak or move. This is Satan's one chance to give life to an image in front of the entire world, whatever that looks like. The image of the beast will speak and move. How will this happen? Will Satan or one of his minions possess an avatar that will come to life? Will it be made of some kind of biotechnological material? Like a bio suit? Or is the entire thing figurative and not literal? It is interesting to ponder, but merely speculative in nature, and will not be the subject of this post. What I will focus on is what Christ said to the Nephites, things that have been and shall be. I believe that the key to understanding the future is studying the past, and that the two are interlinked and seen by God simultaneously. This post, and the next, will be about the relationship between the whore, or Mystery Babylon, and the Beast, who they might be, and how God will allow them to destroy each other. As you will see dear readers, this is part of His covenant to the house of Israel, He promises to protect His people from these sycophants, by filling the great pit which has been dug for the people of the Lord with those who digged it. God's satire and irony are truly mind-blowing. Let's go down the rabbit hole...
Bread Crumbs From the Prophets
The record of Jewish persecution of Gentiles is a long one and they have sometimes been carried out with unspeakable cruelty; the Old Testament itself is in some chapters obviously anti-Gentile. (Ibid p. 28)
Can you see how they have flipped things around? Remember it was God who commanded the Israelites to destroy the heathen nations so they could possess the promised land. We don't understand all the reasons why the Israelites were commanded to slaughter other civilizations. Perhaps the Old Testament has been so mistranslated that what actually occurred was that the heathen nations destroyed each other, much like the Nephites did. The latter is more in-line with God's pattern of allowing the wicked to destroy the wicked. However, we do not know all the reasons why God does what He does. Regardless, the Jewish past is no excuse to treat them with the disdain that has characterized their mistreatment in the 20th century. Consider the words of the Lord to Nephi in regard to the Jews:
O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine ancient covenant people? Nay, but ye have cursed them, and have hated them, and have not sought to recover them. But behold, I will return these things upon your own heads, for I the Lord hath not forgotten my people. (2 Nephi 12:9, RE)
More on the Jews later, but for now let's get into the history of some infamous secret societies.
The Rosicrucians and the Templars
Before I get in the prophecies of Daniel and John and their Atlantean imagery, a brief explanation of the differences between English and French Freemasonry is necessary. According to Mr. Daniel, both branches were organized in the 1700s, but came from other fraternities originating from much earlier. The English branch was infiltrated by the Rosicrucians, a secret society that formed centuries earlier. They thought of themselves as "esoteric" masons, and believed in a divine universe that one could tap into to lessen suffering, were pantheistic and humanistic, and subscribed to occult doctrines such as alchemy and astrology. They backed the Glorious Revolution of 1688, in which the Stuart dynasty was overthrown and replaced with the James dynasty, and "absolute monarchy" was replaced with "Constitutional monarchy" based on the Magna Charta. They incorporated a strategic mix of Christianity and paganism, in the tradition of Catholicism and Constantine "to attract Protestant Reformers to their Order," and were steeped in Hermeticism (from the Greek god Hermes), which involved "mystical, magical, or occult sciences." (Scarlet and the Beast, pp. 30-31)
After the Glorious Revolution, they named themselves "free" masons, hence the modern term Freemasonry. They believed they had to be free men to be initiated into the mysteries, and "should be free in all their thoughts and actions..." However, this freedom they wanted for themselves, the adepts, and not for us, the profane. Their emblem is an affront to Christ, and is literally the symbol of a serpent. According to Mr. Daniel, it consists of:
...a red rose twined around the base of a cross. The rose is the phallic occult symbol of the serpent. Together, the rose and the cross became known as the "Rosy Cross," or "Rose-Croix," hence the name Rosicrucian. (Ibid, p.31)
The Templars, or the Knights Templar, were the second branch of Freemasonry to form (more on the first later), organizing themselves as a military priesthood by their first Grand Master, Hugh de Payens, in 1118. They were initially a religious organization, named after the temple at Jerusalem, and were the backers and financiers of the Crusades. They were led by a committee of 9, and their order had 13 degrees of initiation (both 9 and 13 are esoteric numbers). They endeavored, as Alma explained, to enforce their priestcraft by the sword, and "adopted the famous splayed red cross of the Merovingian kings of France, placing it on their mandes, swords, buildings, and gravestones" Some conspiracy researchers believe they possessed the lost treasures of Solomon, estimated at a value around $14 billion (in 10th century dollars), which they used to become the world's first international bankers. Mr. Daniel writes:
Their domicile is of great significance, for somewhere beneath it was allegedly buried the unfathomable wealth of Solomon. As the Templar's fame increased, so did their wealth. According to standard histories, one source of their wealth was gifts from kings and princes grateful for their services... As their wealth and influence grew, the Templars "developed into an efficient military organization that adopted absolute secrecy to cover all internal activities. (Ibid, p.32)
As they increased in fame, they began to be noticed by powerful adversaries, notably King Philip Iv of France, who, reigning in the 11th Century on the brink of bankruptcy, began to covet their wealth and land. He labeled them as religious heretics, who like the Cathars, subscribed to Gnosticism, which is the practice of replacing faith with knowledge (this is one meaning of the G on the compass and square symbol the Masons use today). Remember, in the garden of Eden parable, it was the serpent who offered Eve the gift of knowledge (ye shall be as the gods, knowing good from evil). Later, the Templars adopted the symbol of the skull and crossbones, "the symbol of death." Mr. Daniel explains that "in Free-masonry, the skull and crossbones became the symbol of the Master Mason..." (Ibid, p.33)
If any of you wonder where the legend of Friday the 13th came from, it was on that day in October of 1307, that king Philip famously ordered the arrest of all the Templars in France. In 1314, after Philip's Inquisition of the Templars, their Grand Master Jacques de Molay, and other offenders were burned at the stake. Those who escaped fled to Scotland and allied themselves with king Robert Bruce against England, even fighting alongside the the Scots in the Battle of Bannockburn. There in Scotland, they remained underground and continued their society unmolested for another four centuries. In the 1700s, they aligned themselves with prince Charles Edward Stuart, son of James Stuart VI (creator of the King James Bible, and also a Mason), a descendent of Robert Bruce, again in a short-lived war against England. Prince Charles was attempting to regain his Scottish throne, and was backed by a group of Templars who called themselves Jacobites, after their martyred leader Jacques de Molay. They were repulsed and beaten in less than a year, and the Scottish Templars returned to France, who, as Mr. Daniel writes:
...founded the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, quickly developing it to 32 degrees by 1755. In 1801 all French lodges accepted the Templar Scottish Rite degrees. That same year the Scottish Rite of Charleston, S.C., created the 33rd and final degree in Templar Freemasonry. (Ibid, p. 34)
The Stuarts were deported to France, after which the Rosicrucians freely infiltrated and dominated the British throne and Church of England, and it was this flavor of Freemasonry that was imported to America first. They established themselves in York, England as York Masonry, and become known as the York Rite, while the Templars established themselves as the Scottish Rite. That is why when America was colonized they named one state New York. The York Rite was the more religious sect, and they always endeavored to control both church and state, while the Scottish Rite is the atheistic sect, who favored a democracy divorced from religion. Both sects of Masonry were established in America, the York Rite first in Virginia, and the Scottish Rite in Charleston, South Carolina. The York Rite is made up of the wealthy and aristocratic classes, while the Scottish Rite consists of lower and middle classes. The Scottish Rite broke up into two jurisdictions in America, the Northern jurisdiction established in Boston (infiltrated by the York Rite during the war of 1812), and the Southern jurisdiction in Charleston. Mr. Daniel explains the difference as follows:
We can make some general observations regarding the Northern and Southern Jurisdictions of American Freemasonry. The Northern Jurisdiction, which we can identify with in American politics with the Eastern Establishment, is right-wing or moderate. It is the headquarters of America's aristocracy and is primarily Republican. The Southern Jurisdiction is left-wing or liberal, more or less comprised of the working class and common laborer, and usually Democrat. There are crossovers in both Jurisdictions, and when voters in America take sides on issues, we are caught up in this Masonic struggle of conservative versus liberal, right-wing versus left-wing, big business versus labor, free enterprise versus socialism. etc. (Ibid, p. 36)
As you can see, the entire political spectrum is controlled by the same entities, differing only slightly in theory and principle. They both are vying for world domination and power, but through different tactics based on different philosophies. If you look at the back of a one-dollar bill, you'll notice an eagle facing west, (representation of the ancient Egyptian phoenix, associated with Horus the sun-god) with two wings. One wing has 32 feathers and the other has 33, representing the highest degrees of Freemasonry. Both wings are controlled by the same brain, and the tail feathers number 9, just like the original council of the Knight's Templar. There are 13 layers to the pyramid, thirteen arrows, thirteen leaves on the olive branch, and of course thirteen stars and thirteen stripes representing the thirteen colonies (13 represents perfect government, or all the constellations plus the sun; the cross used by both Templars and Rosicrucians represents the cross of the Zodiac, not the cross Christ was crucified on). The eye in the capstone representing the unfinished pyramid (or Satanic trapezoid) represents the eye of Horus, or the all-seeing eye of Lucifer. Both branches of Freemasonry share these occult symbols, and the only disagreement is who will control the New World Order, or Novus Ordo Seclorum. Take a look for yourself:
And the blood of that great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall turn upon their own heads, for they shall war among themselves, and the sword of their own hands shall fall upon their own heads, and they shall be drunken with their own blood. (1 Nephi 7:4, RE, emphasis added)
The sword of their own hands is the military power they created, the beast that at first does their bidding but eventually develops a mind of its own. Can you see God's wisdom playing out in this scenario? The people of God, i.e., Zion, will not have to fight against the beast, God will do that for them by simply letting prideful people wrangle over power. In the meantime, they will be too frightened to come up against Zion because the elements will protect that holy city. The wicked will say:
Let us not go up to battle against Zion, for the inhabitants of Zion are terrible, wherefore we cannot stand. (T&C 31:15)
This will not be because those dwelling in Zion will be some mighty military force, it will be because of the power of the Lamb of God, that Nephi said will descend upon the Saints. The very elements and animals will obey them, this is the promise to the righteous. The account of Enoch in Genesis (the inspired version) gives us full disclosure as to the kind of miracles we should expect to attend the future Zion:
And so great was the faith of Enoch that he led the people of God, and their enemies came to battle against them, and he spoke the word of the Lord, and the earth trembled, and the mountains fled - even according to his command - and the rivers were turned out of their course, and the roar of the lions was heard out of the wilderness. And all nations feared greatly, so powerful was the word of Enoch, and so great was the power of the language which God had given him. There also came up a land out of the depths of the sea, and so great was the fear of the enemies of the people of God that they fled, and stood afar off, and went upon the land which came up out of the depths of the sea. And the giants of the land also stood afar off. And there went forth a curse upon all the people who fought against God. (Genesis 4:13, RE)
Can you imagine living through and witnessing those events? Powerful armies and giants fleeing because of a spoken word, because of the language of God, a language so powerful that animals and elements respond to it. This will happen again dear readers, many prophets testified of these things (both in figurative and literal language) transpiring in the last-days Zion. The king of Assyria and his master the beast will not be able to stand against Zion. This is God's covenant to the house of Israel, this is the Great and Marvelous work and wonder of the last days. God will preserve His people in Zion, and He will lead others from all over the world safely to it, even if He has to cast up a land bridge out of the great deep. We ought not doubt the power of God, instead of relying on weapons and armies, this will be accomplished with simple faith. John hinted to those who will choose to fight with weapons by this admonition to listen:
If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity. He that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Revelations 4:8, RE)
Did you catch that? No weapons will be necessary to protect Zion. No conventional methods of war (capturing people and fighting with weapons) will be used in Zion. John is trying to tell us that those who pursue these methods will perish with the rest of the whore who fight against Zion. The patience and faith of the Saints is to trust in God to protect them. To actually believe that He will fulfill His promises. This could mean doing nothing to defend themselves, as did the Anti-Nephi-Lehis, as terrifying armies are rapidly advancing upon them. Can you imagine the faith that you must have in such a scenario? The weapons used by the king of Assyria will be technologically advanced... such as nukes, bioweapons, weather manipulation, AI robot soldiers, advanced air craft, energy weapons, or anything else you can imagine out of a sci-fi thriller. Whatever it is doesn't matter, God is more powerful. The earth and the animals will make light work of the Assyrian's armies, and whoever is left will be consumed by the scourge. We ought not be afraid of man, whose breath is in his nostrils, for those who fight against Zion shall be as the dream out of a night vision, who will eat and drink in their dreams, but will find themselves hungry and thirsty upon awakening. In other words, they will think they can easily subdue Zion, but will be surprisingly repulsed when they try. They will daydream about conquering it, but reality will overtake them.
I was planning on getting into the prophecies of John and Daniel in this post, but I'm realizing that there is far too much material. That will have to wait until part three, but before I end, there is somewhat more to say about the Jews, God's ancient covenant people. They have been painted as the Cabal behind the New World Order, a so-called Jewish conspiracy. Nothing is farther from the truth. While there may be some Jews involved in the Illuminati, most are not, and God has not forgotten them.
A Hiss and a Byword
And as for those who are at Jerusalem, saith the prophet, they shall be scourged by all people because they crucified the God of Israel and turn their hearts aside, rejecting signs and wonders, and power, and the glory of the God of Israel. And because they turn their hearts aside, and have despised the Holy One of Israel, they shall wander in the flesh, and perish, and become a hiss and a byword, and be hated among all nations. Nevertheless, when that day cometh, saith the prophet, that they no more turn aside their hearts against the Holy One of Israel, then will he remember the covenants which he made to their fathers. (1 Nephi 5:37, RE, emphasis added)
The word hiss in noun form is a "continued sound, commonly expressing disapproval or contempt," and one cannot say the word without making a provocative sound. Snakes and lizards hiss to warn other predators to back off; it is a word associated with enmity. A byword can mean "something that has become proverbial (famous)," usually satirical in nature. The preposition by can mean "at, near, about, or close at hand," and in a nautical sense can mean, "sailing to the wind and off it, in one direction then another." The Jews have truly wandered in the flesh and been scourged, enslaved, and persecuted by nation after nation, from ancient Babylon and Rome to modern Germany and Palestine. They have been scattered throughout the entire world just as Nephi has prophesied. But are they truly involved in a global conspiracy to created a one-world government patterned after ancient Babylon? Absolutely not. Such an undertaking is a Gentile one, but as we shall see, the Jews have been the scapegoat for it.
The mother of harlots, that is English Freemasonry, did not begin as the Rosicrucians, but were first known as the Priory of Sion. Sion is a French word for Zion. They existed before the Knights Templar, and were actually the creators of that order. They created them as a military unit to protect the Holy Grail, which to the exoteric meant the fictitious cup held by Joseph of Arimathea that caught the blood of Christ, the golden cup held by Scarlet as seen by John. However, the esoteric meaning of the Grail is a bloodline, the bloodline of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, known as the Merovingian bloodline. Scarlet's golden cup is full of "abominations and the filthiness of her fornication," because it is the utmost sacrilege and blasphemy. This is where the origin of the counterfeit Jewish connection to the cabal begins. Satan has endeavored to blame the Jews from the beginning, and to skew the divinity of Christ by morphing Him into a mere mortal man. Let me explain.
The Priory of Sion do not believe that Jesus Christ was divine, but they do believe He ascended from a royal bloodline, the bloodline of king David. According to legend, Christ was rescued from the cross, revived by Joseph of Arimathea, escaped with Mary and fathered children with her. These children would give rise to the Merovingian dynasty, owners of the Holy Grail and the self-imposed rightful heirs of the throne of David, a lineage which they believe gives them the right to rule the world. The Hapsburgs from Austria are the descendants of the Merovingians and still claim to be in possessing of the spear that was thrust into Jesus' side. In fact, it is on display in a museum in Vienna. However, no one knows where the Grail is (that is because it doesn't exist).
If any of you have seen Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, this "bedtime story" is retold in modern entertainment. George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are familiar with this fable, and have put it out there in plain sight for the world to see. Do you remember what Sean Connery said at the end of movie when Harrison Ford asked him what he found from the adventure? The answer was illumination, a direct reference to the Illuminati and the mystery schools. This story was unearthed by two researchers who wrote a book entitled, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, first published in 1982, which is quoted extensively throughout Mr. Daniel's book. Mr. Daniel explains that after the authors "embarked on a ten-year investigation that took them throughout Europe," one part of the "astounding repercussions" that ensued was the Hollywood trilogy Indiana Jones. Here is a free PDF of the book.
What does this have to do with the Jews? According to Reverend J.R. Church, in his book, Guardians of the Grail, published in 1989, the legend goes that after Jesus and Mary produced children, they [Mary and the children] fled to France when Rome destroyed the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D. Church writes:
There [France] they found refuge in a Jewish community. Future generations of her offspring were said to have married into the royal Frankish family and by the fifth century produced a king. His name was Merovee. He was the first in a series of kings called the Merovingian bloodline. It is said that the offspring of Merovee were noted for a birthmark above the heart - a small red cross. This symbol eventually became the emblem of the Guardians of the Grail.
Merovee, king of the Franks from 447 to 458 A.D., was an adherent of the religious cult of Diana. His son, Childeric I (458-482 A.D.) practiced witchcraft. His son, Clovis I (458-511 A.D.) adopted Christianity in 496 A.D. In 496 A.D., the Bishop of Rome made a pact with Clovis, the grandson of Merovee, and king of the Franks, calling him the "New Constantine," giving him authority to preside over a "Christianized" Roman Empire. (The term "Holy Roman Empire" was not officially used until 962 A.D.)
The so-called offspring of Mary Magdalene were thus established as leaders of the empire. (Quoted in Scarlet and the Beast, p. 58)
In one foul swoop, Satan managed to incorporate the Jews and the Christians into his mystery religion as a means to deceive the world into rejecting both as God's people. The Jews became part of the conspiracy to control the world, and the Christians became copy-cats of the Babylonian sun worship religions of old. If you recall in The Last Crusade, when the assassins are pursuing Indiana in the action-packed boat chase, after a struggle with one of them he reveals to Indy the red cross birthmark on his chest. He tells Indy that he is part of a brotherhood that is sworn to protect the Holy Grail with their lives. This is an illusion to the Knight's Templar, who were charged with that very order by the Priory of Sion. But ironically, the Templars, basking in their new-found wealth and prestige, broke away from the mother branch and went their own way. They held sway with kings all throughout Europe, so it begs the question as to how king Philip Iv was able to crush them so easily. The answer is that he was backed by the powerful Priory of Sion, the mother of harlots herself attempting to destroy her own personal Frankenstein. But as we have seen, that Frankenstein found refuge in Scotland and later France, and has become the French Freemasonry of today, still in conflict with its mother, English Freemasonry. This story will keep playing out in the future, precisely as the prophets have foretold.
The Priory believe that they are the rightful rulers of this world. They trace their lineage back through the Jews to the line of David, who is associated with the Lion of Judah, or the constellation Leo. During the Summer Solstice, Leo is positioned at the top of the Royal Arch of Heaven, when the sun shines the brightest. This is their symbolism of their supposed right to rule, and is where the modern symbol of the lion portrayed by MGM studios comes from. They are putting it right in your face. It is also ensconced in the Disney movie The Lion King. This is why the lion has long been associated with England and her monarchies. It is a symbol of Mystery Babylon ruling from her country of origin, England, and more specifically, London, the location of the Mother Grand Lodge. According to Mr. Daniel, the Priory's claim to Jewish monarchy is a usurpation of the Davidic line (the real King is Jesus Christ, whose Kingdom is not of this world, not yet anyway) and is blasphemous. Mr. Daniel makes an interesting connection between the "synagogue of Satan" and the Philadelphia church mentioned by John. Synagogue of Satan is just another way of saying the church of the Devil, and what John could've actually been doing (in Old Testament prophet style), was using the church in Philadelphia as a typology of the future role of Mystery Babylon. Mr. Daniel explains:
Jesus speaks of such a heresy in Revelation 3:9, where He admonishes the Philadelphia Church, representing Church history from approximately 1750 to the 1900s: "Behold, I will make of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and know that I have loved thee. (Ibid, p. 59)
In a later chapter, Mr. Daniel offers a more detailed analysis. John made another reference to the synagogue of Satan in Revelations 2:9, admonishing the church at Smyrna. Mr. Daniel makes the following fascinating connection:
The churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia were located in Asia Minor, today's Turkey, where the Eleusinian mysteries were immensely popular. These mysteries could be termed, "the synagogue of Satan" since, upon completion of the 12th degree, the initiate was pronounced a Jew. Certainly, Revelation 3:9 testifies to the Eleusinian mysteries during the first 100 years of so of Church history, while at the same time it prophesies of the Mormons, the Jehovah's Witnesses and similar anti-Christian cults in our day. More specifically, this Scripture refers to Scottish Rite Freemasonry during the last 250 years, considering that the period prophesied for the Philadelphia Church age began around 1750. Many theologians agree that the seven Churches in the book of Revelation are prophecies of the various ages of Church history... (Ibid, p. 169)
The brand of Mormonism he is referencing is the Brighamite sect, as it was he and Heber who incorporated Scottish Rite Freemasonry into the religion. Joseph Smith has been blamed for this, and sadly, most scholars, including Mr. Daniel, are blinded to this truth. Regardless of his views on Mormonism, the point is that both branches of Freemasonry claim Jewish origin, which is false. Like John said, "they say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie." Mr. Daniel asserts that the Scottish Rite had added the 32nd degree around the time "the Philadelphia Church age began to emerge." He further elucidates that "it was called the Jewish Rite because its system was based upon the Jewish Cabala. Yet, it was founded by Gentiles" (Ibid, p. 170). Later, the Jewish Cabala was instrumental into developing the 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite, further implicating the Jews in the conspiracy. The influence from the Jewish Cabala was merely a front, as the real rites of Freemasonry come from ancient pagan religions. The story of Freemasonry is the infiltration of one group after another, just as Moroni said, the secret plans and oaths of the Gadianton robbers are "had among all people," which means all people have felt their influence, and some of those people have been their scapegoats.
Mr. Daniel quotes former 33rd degree Mason Dr. J. Blanchard, author of the two-volume set Scottish Rite Masonry Illustrated, where he made the following remarks, succinctly summing up how Masonry uses religion to its own advantage:
Let the authoritative teaching of Dr. Mackey be continually borne in mind, that: - "the mission and object of Masonry is the worship of the Great Architect of the Universe." It follows that the lodges must have something for their dupes to do, called worship. And what could wicked men and devils invent craftier or better suited to deceive the simple, than this very scheme of "the Ancient Scottish Rite," which now rules the rites of the world. It seizes and appropriates all of religion but its holiness and justice; and all of Christ but his truth and his atonement. It mixes things sacred with things profane, till the whole compound is profanity; and quoting the Bible as if it believed it true, which notoriously it does not, it has finished a dark system which angels flee from and devils inhabit. Every lodge is a Synagogue of Satan and its ritual is Sorcery. (Ibid, p. 170, emphasis added)
Mr. Daniel adds a further insight of his own, bringing the entire picture in full view. The sobering reality is that any group, any secret society, any religion, any movement, and any government, can be infiltrated and subjugated. He writes:
Herein lies the danger of Freemasonry. Any individual can subvert any secret society. A Weishaupt, a Lenin, a Hitler, or the Beast of the Apocalypse can take over by superimposition, leaving he lower degrees completely ignorant. Any group (such as the Priory of Sion, the Templars, the Bolsheviks, the Nazis, or Scarlet of the Apocalypse) can do the same. Through this pyramid system naive initiates can be controlled by Satanists, Luciferians, New Agers, atheists, pantheists, communists, fascists, or terrorists. Because their bloody oaths demand unquestioned obedience to the unseen rulers above, the lower degrees blindly follow all dictates handed down to them. (Ibid, p. 173)
The Jews are innocent bystanders in all of this, some have been involved in the real Cabal, like for instance Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, but the vast majority of Jews are just regular folks like you and me. God is attempting to gather them with the Book of Mormon, they are promised to be gathered back to Jerusalem before Christ comes again. But if Satan can create confusion about these people, he can attempt to thwart those plans. Before I end, there are just a few more key points that illustrate the confusion about Jews. As you will see, the so-called Jewish conspiracy is perpetuated by Gentiles in Jewish clothing, and the real Cabala is nothing but Nimrod's old-time mystery religion revealed anew.
Weishaupt, Rothchild, and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
Consider the facts. Raised in the ghettos at Frankfurt, Rothschild was well aware of the despicable plight of the Jews. Restrictive laws against Jews would not permit him, even as a wealthy man, to break out of these horrid conditions. He died in those same ghettos without realizing his dream. His sole purpose in life was to free the Jews from this contemptible state, while at the same time building a future for his family - an honorable Jewish tradition. No thought of conspiracy ever entered Rothchild's mind, nor corruption taint his practice. To the contrary, he labored to never make so much as an accounting error. Furthermore, his honor was upheld with praise from his royal patrons. when the Revolution did come, royalty, fearing for their lives and their riches, turned to Rothschild for help. He did not let them down. Although Rothchild never betrayed his royal customers, he really had no concern as to who would rule Europe, so long as his own interests, and that of the Jews, were protected... (Ibid, p. 166)
Mr. Daniel's opinion is an interesting one, sometimes we have ideas about historical figures that are loaded with bias, and Rothschild has been linked with a Jewish conspiracy of international bankers for sure. But sometimes people are in the right place at the right time to make them appear guilty of something that they are innocent of. His story could be such a case, but regardless, linking Rothschild with an international Jewish conspiracy for world domination is a weak argument at best, and omits many of the facts.
Finally, a famous document that has long been considered a hoax painted a group (197 to be exact) of unnamed Jewish delegates as the perpetrators behind a world conspiracy to create a one-world government. That document is called The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. It was alleged to have been the minutes of a three-day meeting held in August of 1897, the first Zionist Congress at Basel, Switzerland. The Protocols consisted of 24 documents containing details about future plans to enslave the world, and was the major source of the anti-Semitism that spread throughout Europe before the rise of Hitler. The Protocols were first published in Russia in 1903, conveniently during the climax of Jewish Reform that began in the mid 1800s. According to Mr. Daniel, German Grand Orient (French) Freemasonry sent Reform Jews to destroy Jewish Orthodoxy in Russia in 1840, eight years before Karl Marx would publish the Communist Manifesto. These infiltrators were charged with "destroying Russian Jews through assimilation into Russian society." The Czarist regime backed the Reformers, and began forced assimilation programs that ended in violent pogroms (organized massacres) of innocent Jews. Jewish resistance to the terror that ensued resulted in a push for a return to Palestine, the Jewish homeland, and thus the modern Zionist movement was born. Mr. Daniel writes:
Zionism was an escapist reaction that grew from the anti-Semitic seeds sown by the Reform. Within four decades Zionism became a nationalistic movement of Jews around the world. Herzl created the first Zionist Congress held in Basel, Switzerland in 1897. Twenty years later Russia experienced "the vengeance of the Jews" in the Bolshevik Revolution, so stated those who had read and believed the "evidence" of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion. (Scarlet, p. 290)
Mr. Daniel uses the French spelling (Sion) for the Protocols of the Learned Elders of "Zion, because he believes that the document was created in France decades earlier by Grand Orient Freemasonry... by those who "say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie." The Russian Revolution was a watershed moment for Jewish persecution, both sides of which were financed by Jewish bankers. Alexander Kerensky, vying to establish a democratic government, was backed by the Rothschilds, and by orthodox Jews, which he won full emancipation for on April 5th of 1917. On the other end of the spectrum, was Bolshevik Vladimir Lenin, funded by Max Warburg, who, in a bloodless coup, toppled the Kerensky government in October of that same year. After Kerensky fell, Rothschild diverted his funding to the White Russians, until they too began to persecute the Jews. With the help of American corporations, the Bolsheviks would defeat the Whites and assume full power of the Provisional Russian government by 1919, and the result was a mass exodus of Jews escaping to the west, settling in Germany.
Meanwhile, the Anglo-American establishment was pushing the propaganda of the Protocols, specifically two high-ranking Freemasons, Henry Ford and Winston Churchill. Ford reproduced the Protocols in a book titled The International Jew in the early 1920s, while young Churchill, Great Britain's secretary of War, was charging "the Jews with engineering a world wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization." During Hitler's rise to power, he had discovered the Protocols, and would record in Mein Kampf that they were proof of a Jewish conspiracy, which he used to justify the ritual slaughter of six million Jews. However, Hitler was also a high ranking Mason, and could've been aware that the Protocols were a forgery blaming the Jews for a conspiracy that was actually being perpetrated by Gentile Masons. Along with Lenin, Hitler too was funded by American corporations (See Antony C. Sutton, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler) during his rise to power, and was probably privy to inside information. But his zeal to establish world government too quickly ended in millions of deaths and carnage worldwide.
So who really authored the Protocols? Mr. Daniel documents in his book that in 1935, the court of Berne in Switzerland ruled that the Protocols were Jewish, but were rather of French origin. Specifically, they were a plagiarism of a French book entitled the Dialogues of Geneva, anonymously published in Brussels in 1865. Mr. Daniel records that the real author of the Dialogues was discovered and arrested by the police of Napoleon III, a lawyer named Maurice Joly. He spent two years in jail for authoring the revolutionary document, and, as it turns out, Joly was a Freemason, and a close friend of the famous French poet Victor Hugo (author of the Hunchback of Notre Dame), both were members of the Rose-Croix order in France. Mr. Daniel writes:
From 1844 until his death in 1885, Victor Hugo was the Grand Master of the Priory of Sion. The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, suggest that the Rosicrucian order to which both Joly and Hugo belonged was the Priory of Sion. (Scarlet, p. 292)
As you can see, the Jews never had a fighting chance to redeem themselves. They have been framed in a carefully crafted conspiracy carried out by English Freemasonry, the very Mother of Harlots. The Jewish Cabal is a myth, one that Satan perpetuates in an attempt to destroy God's covenant people, and to confuse the rest of us as to what is really going on in Israel. Someday, God will show the world that His "wisdom is greater than the cunning of the Devil," and all of His people (who repent) will be restored to their lands of promise, while those who dig pits for them will fall in themselves.
The Protocols today are not taken seriously by anyone, and this too is part of the genius of blaming them on the Jews a century ago. Considered a hoax, they have been collecting dust on the proverbial bookshelves of fringe conspiracy theory, but they do reveal the ancient Babylonian System, the modus operandi of how the Globalists are planning to establish world government, and they are doing it right under our noses.
The Babylonian System
- Men are incapable of self-government, and therefore need to be ruled by violence and terror. Political freedom in an abstract idea, not a fact. Right lies in might. A good politician shouldn't be guided by morals (Machiavellianism)
- Education will be used to destroy individual autonomy. Intellectuals will be in the employ of the elite to mold popular opinion.
- Poverty will be used as a weapon against the masses. Education will be used to mold society into divisions and classes. The basis of human life is social existence (a cog in the wheel of society), national schools will teach division of labor and inequality. Divide (into social classes) and conquer as a means of control.
- Religion must be destroyed. All faith must be undermined and replaced with "arithmetical calculations and material needs." In other words, materialism.
- The masses will be led by lies and the elites will control all money and capital.
- Huge monopolies will be established, economic controls will keep the "Gentiles," i.e., the profane, enslaved.
- Universal war. The buildup of armaments, the creation of police states, using the threat of war and violence to keep the masses fearful and easy to rule.
- Legalese must be created to skew the true meaning of law and order. Lawyers and judges will work against the people. Economists will be employed by the State to justify the elite control of finances. (I wrote an article about legalese last winter, entitled Slavery by Consent)
- The elites will create a "Jewish" super-state, i.e., a one-world government. They refer to it as an "international super-government."
- Their goal is world power. They will create chaos amongst all the nations to use as a pretext for one-world government. They control politics and hand-pick presidents. Liberalism (classical liberalism, remember this was written in the mid 1850s) is "poison."
- They are wolves in sheep's clothing. "Secret Masonry" is the basis of their organization. They will use the machinery of the State to "make Law, Right, and Justice," according to the "Legislative Corp," i.e., which they refer to us "the editorial committee of the laws and decrees of the ruler."
- They will control the press. They will change the meaning of the word "freedom." They will destroy freedom of the press. They will use "the instrument of thought" as "an educative means on the hands of our government." Only lies will be printed (fake news).
- Bread and circuses. They will keep the working classes distracted with "amusements, games, pastimes, passions, people's palaces [idols], competitions and sports."
- They will abolish all religion except theirs (atheism). Christians will be especially targeted. The name of Christ will be forbidden.
- They control secret societies. Low-ranking Freemasons will be do their bidding without realizing it. They will use coups and clandestine operations to control nations. They view the profane as cattle. They will demand absolute obedience to "patriarchal" and "paternal" leaders.
- They will change history: "we shall erase from the memory of men all facts of previous centuries which are undesirable to us, and leave only those which depict all the errors of government of the Goyim." They will use "object lessons" to "turn the Goyim into unthinking submissive brutes."
- They will destroy (infiltrate) the clergy. They will launch a crusade against Christianity until it is completely destroyed. All subjects will bow to the State and comply with obligatory duties and services.
- They will govern by fear. Their appointed rulers will have the indiscriminate power of capital punishment. Criminals will be arrested on mere suspicion (thought crime).
- Political crime, i.e., crimes against the State, will be included with theft and murder. Sedition and treason will be defined as speaking against political rulers.
- They will destroy capital through inflation. They will cause depressions and recessions as a means of control. The gold standard will be obliterated. Usury will be used to keep individuals and nations subservient to the elites.
- Manipulation of the money supply, using government debt to keep the masses enslaved to interest and taxes (Hamiltonian idea of public debt).
- The justification of committing horrendous acts of evil to bring about order (ordo ab chao).
- They will demand absolute obedience from the Goyim when their "Chosen One of God' will finally be crowned as King. Whoever does not comply will be executed.
- Others will rule under the "Chosen One," others whom they call kings who descend from the Davidic line (this is right in line with the philosophies of the Priory of Sion, i.e., English Freemasonry).
