In these times there is a lot of speculation about a One World Religion and the antichrist. Will the antichrist be worshiped as a Pope like the early reformers believed, will he be a european business man as fantasized in the Left Behind series, would he be a Muslim messiah called the Mahdi, or is he the long awaited Jewish Messiah? And how will all of these competing ideologies be untied into one universal framework of worship?
The Apostle John in the prophetic Book of Revelation gives a little insight into this future leader and system. In Chapter 13 we read,
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Revelation 13:12
Most people read this as predicating an antichrist world-leader that is hurt, or assassinated only to be miraculously resurrected or reanimated in some way (Computer AI, transhuman cyborg, advanced human hybrid?). The Antichrist or beast, is also seen as a system that demands compete allegiance and worship when considering Revelation 13:15, a living system that knows your allegiance and will kill you if it is not worshiped in totality,
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. Revelation 13:15
Note, the word “image” in these passages is the Greek word we use for icon, εἰκών, or the English word for “image.” It refers to a physical token. Jesus used this same word when asking for a coin with the image of Caesar embossed into it when he brilliantly confounded the Pharisees by saying “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s” in Matt. 22:21. This use by Jesus also correctly conveys that the word εἰκών is used as a financial unit of measure and instrument.
So, with the Mark of the Beast in Revelations we are introduced to a future One World Religion and economic system. This system will employee the use of a physical marking or token that denotes a person’s religious worship of the Beast through the use of an idol-like image associated with the global messianic leader. This mark is a symbol that denotes worship and used much like a coin, or token of transaction. This system will require the participation of everyone, no matter their religious background or secular philosophical leanings and most people will be compelled to join finding common ground inside this unified system underneath the antichrist.
The question is, how, in a technologic and scientific age is the devil going to reconcile the messianic aspirations of the practicing Abrahamic faiths (Jewish, Muslim & Christian), with an increasingly secular humanist worldview among the scientific and scholarly communities of higher education? How will Satan merge these competing and opposed viewpoints into a single perspective of worship? The answer is Judaism.
A Call for a Global Messiah
With the Abrahamic faiths it is easy to see how they can all be duped into believing this antichrist leader could be their own messiah. The Muslims are primed for the arrival of their conquering prophet the Mahdi, the Jews are also eagerly awaiting the rival of their war like messiah, and the Christian Zionists who have been thoroughly Judaized are also looking for the return of their “Jewish” messiah.
In fact, a call for unity and partnership among the Abrahmic faiths is currently being organized as we speak,
“…hosted by Turkish opinion leader Adnan Oktar, was that global salvation requires Christians, Jews and Muslims to stop fighting one another, and instead come together in brotherly union.
A press release regarding the event published by Mr. Oktar’s office included the following excerpts:
Mr. Oktar underlined the positive role of religion, saying that problems between peoples “can be solved only by means of religious people since religion puts a complete end to hatred. The solution is love, friendship and brotherhood as described in Torah, Bible and the Qur’an. Religious people should come together, stand in solidarity.” Mr. Oktar also cited the following passages from the Torah after praying for the appearance of Moshiach whom he believes will be the only solution for peace:
“Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another?” (Malachi 2:10) (Israel Today)
This recent press release for this event literally states, that world peace can only be achieved when Christians, Jews, and Muslims come together under the appearance of the Moshiach or Messiah.
If hearing these proclamations among world religious figures does not cause you alarm, what will? This is shaping up to be the real antichrist era. Add to it the globalized economic and technological systems and we are living the words of Revelation out, in current events and headlines daily.
But what about all of the secular humanists? They would rather a total abolishment of religious thinking and trappings in the world. The entire scientific establishment responsible for so much of the technologies that make a world economic beast system possible would reject any type of religious veneer on a global system wouldn’t they? Of course they would, the atheists and humanists of the world love to mock and persecute religious communities especially Christianity.
This is why a Jewish Beast System makes so much sense.
Bridging the Divide
An article in the Huffington Post just over a year ago entitled the Jew/Atheist Paradox cited a Harris Survey and a Pew Research study that attempted to answer a profound question. Why are most Jews atheists, seeing they have a rich history of religious faith? And why do Atheists favor them so much over other faiths?
“When I recently wrote about Godless Jews, I cited a Harris survey that surprised a lot of people. The majority of Jews don’t believe in God. They are atheists. What makes this result even more interesting is another finding in a Pew Research Center survey on how Americans feel about different religious and nonreligious groups: Jews are viewed the most warmly of all groups and atheists the least warmly. Go figure!
Other than members of their own sect, evangelical Christians give Jews the highest rating. This is a case of unrequited love because Jews rate evangelical Christians the lowest, below Muslims. Not surprisingly, Jews and atheists regard each other warmly, while both rank evangelical Christians at the bottom.
There is another reason many evangelical Christians strongly support the land of Israel and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, perhaps even more so than most Jews. In a word, it’s “rapture.” According to the strangest book in the New Testament, Revelation, there will be a final apocalyptic battle in Armageddon, where Israel triumphs. Jesus then will return, take believers up to heaven, and incinerates everyone who doesn’t believe in Jesus, including Jews. So much for God’s chosen people! (If I were to watch this event unfold, I’d have the evidence to become a believer. But I guess I would be too late because evidence-free beliefs are required ahead of the event.)”
“Jews are viewed the most warmly of all groups and atheists the least warmly.” While the author went on to ramble about his own misconceived thoughts on why Jews are mainly atheists, this opening couple of paragraphs rightly describes the paradox. The concept of atheist Jews flies in the face of reason seeing their history. But it does make sense if you consider that agnostic Judaism is an off-shoot of thinking that extends itself back into the very time of Jesus Himself.
To answer this question let’s look at history.
It was the Sadducees of Jesus’ days that were associated with the wealthy political class; they were also the rulers of the Temple and the Levitical Priesthood. You have to remember that up till John the Baptist a prophet had not been seen in over 400 years in Jerusalem. These years were called the Years of Silence. The religious classes in Israel took a turn for the worst during this time, they either became hyper-legalistic Pharisees, or extremely liberal living for excess like the Sadducees. Both though, had become cynical and skeptical that prophets still existed, much less the prospect of a coming Messiah.
According to Josephus, the Sadducees believed that:
- There is no fate.
- God does not commit evil.
- Man has free will; “man has the free choice of good or evil”.
- The soul is not immortal; there is no afterlife.
- There are no rewards or penalties after death.
- There is no resurrection of the dead
It was this hyper-rich and influential political class who were effectively what we would call liberal atheists despite their connection with the Temple. They were socially liberal and rejected much of the oral traditions maintained by the Pharisees. Their ideas about God, death, sin, and the afterlife are still maintained even to this day by modern non-orthodox Jews.
The motto of the modern Jew, is the motto of the Sadducees “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” Jesus addressed this in his parable to the rich young fool who undoubtedly lived under Sadducee philosophy,
“.. thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 12 19-21
While these agnostic views have been reorganized countless times under different groups and headings the core doctrine of the Sadducees are still accepted and adhered to by modern Jews the world over. These were people so focused on material gain, entertainment and pleasure they thought nothing of God and His judgment, because they didn’t fear his judgments disbelieving in an afterlife.
This is why Judaism has always been associated with communism; it easy assimilates into an atheistic worldview because of this ancient connection. The wealthy Zionists know this and have played communism and Jewish angst against western capitalism for over a century now as a means of control through warring superpowers.
It really makes no sense outside of this realization that the modern state of Israel isn’t organized as a religious theocracy, seeing their heritage and ancestral lands play such a huge part in their identity. Instead Israel is a secular democracy that openly embraces its secularism. As noted in this Haaretz article entitled, How Israel Went From Atheist Zionism to Jewish State,
“Zionism as a national movement that rebelled against historical Judaism was mainly atheistic. Most of its leaders and activists ceased believing in redemption through the coming of the Messiah, the long-standing essence of Jewish belief, and took their fate into their own hands. The power of the human subject replaced the power of the omnipotent God.” (Haartez)
Anything goes in Israel, they have the largest LGBT population and protections on earth, their corporations have no moral restraint specializing in spying, bio-engineering, drugs, organ-trafficking and warfare. They have no problem manipulating the United States into paying them billions in foreign aid, all the while causing the American military men to die in wars they start in the region. The manifest destiny of the Zionist agenda is, to hell with everyone else, we will get ours at the expense of the world if we must.
Israel is truly the melting-pot of secularism and the Abrahamic faiths, how this all came to pass, to me is nothing short of long-game planning by Satan Himself. Satan who wishes to be worshiped as the culmination of the Abrahamic faiths as a messianic god, yet stands in total defiance to the Creator Himself by mocking God as dead.
So, as far as homogenizing the world’s religions and secular humanists into a One World Religion only the Zionist state of Israel can provide the melting pot of ideologies and connected faiths to bring this to fruition.
Let’s face it, a One World Religion is a tall order to fill. The plausibility of some other entity like the Pope being able to unify all the faiths, and secular humanists the world over becomes statistically impossible. The Pope is a supporting figure maybe, but not THEE figure.
Only Israel and their quasi-faith-based-atheism could meet the qualifications satisfying everyone towards a One World Religion and form of economic worship. Then when we consider the Zionist control of the economy itself it becomes patently clear where we are at and where we are headed. We are smack dab in Mark of the Beast/antichrist territory are we not? Muslims, Christians, Jews and even atheists are being deceived, and conned toward this end. What giant global crisis must unfold to bring all of this to pass? Your guess is as good as mine. But the fact is, it’s happening, and I pray that your soul is in the safety and care of Jesus as your Savior. To worship or appease this system is damnation, scripture makes this clear,
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:” Revelations 17:9-10
If all of the other prophecies have come true, why shouldn’t this one? The ancient Sadducees and Pharisees killed Jesus in Israel, and these modern ones will deliver Jerusalem into the hands of the antichrist to the cheers of the world. How many simpletons will fall for it, only God knows.
