I published this extract from my book ‘Understanding the Apocalypse’ in 2012. It is worth another fresh look at what has happened in this year 2013. The full chapter may be read on our Blog in Chapter 13 under the title of the above book.
The False Prophet – the false religion. Before we deal with verse 13:11, let us look at what to expect in the False Prophet.
The False Prophet is the combination of Ecclesiastical Freemasonry and Ecclesiastical Zionism and Communism. The Masons and Zionists have infiltrated every church in the world, no exceptions. There are Zionist Cardinals and Masonic Cardinals in the Vatican. Protestants were the founders of Freemasonry in England in 1717, and so it is not surprising that Zionism and Masonry would have a home in those ‘churches’ who promoted them.
The False Prophet is controlled by the money of Zionism, the political power of Freemasonry, and the Godless state of Communism. Together with his ecclesiastical power, and using the UN laws and the World Council of Churches, he promotes ecumenical ‘religious tolerance’ to further his own agenda. The persuasive power of the False Prophet, and the economic, military and terrorist forces behind him, make it so that all who do not obey him will be annihilated. He controls the power to persuade people to accept the ‘swastika of the end times’ which is the mark of the beast, in order to be able to work, to earn money, to buy food and essentials. This is not the micro-chip so widely touted, but an even more sinister approach. It is the era of the invisible government of money, it is the plastic revolution.
The False Prophet of ecclesiastical ecumenism disregards what God said: “Man shall not be strengthened by wickedness, and the root of the just shall not be moved” (Pr 12:3). The False Prophet will initially seem to honor all monotheistic religions, and have them on a par with each other, making Christianity, Judaism, and Islam the same, claiming that all are good. He will not proclaim that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, Eucharist, King of All Nations. He will be politically skillful in placating the religion from whence Truth comes, by certifying as dogma some facts to keep the ‘flock’ faithful to him, while at the same time silently and unobtrusively compromising basic truths. When truth is compromised, it is no longer truth, but heresy. These are some of the traits to watch for in the False Prophet.
Understand some of the forces at work to make way for the False Prophet. The ‘man’ imagined, ‘man’ conceived, ‘man’ made, World Council of Churches was formed in Amsterdam in 1948, the same year in which Israel ‘gained’ sovereignty! Through the World Council of Churches, the False Prophet will attempt to abolish the Name of Jesus Christ, which is the original Roman Catholic Church, and will make it illegal and punishable by death for anyone to belong to, or practice the faith of Christ. Already the United Nations on 25 November 1981 have declared their power over religion. The United Nations General Assembly adopted without vote, decision 36/412, the “Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief.” It is interesting to note that “Iran said the United Nations was a secular body, and secular bodies were not qualified to deal with religious matters: Iran accepted the Declaration saying that it was in “Total conformity with Islamic Jurisprudence” ( UN Yearbook, 1981. p 881). This Iranian Moslem condemnation and endorsement alone should alert all of professed ‘Christendom’ to be aware of the deadly peril contained in this rather subtle and seemingly innocuous “Declaration.” Be aware of the powers granted to the United Nations, and endorsed by the political leaders of the world.
Here again I include some points which Mr. Hoffman states which pertain to the False Prophet:
1. The Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.”
2. Any scrutiny of Jewish holy books by Christian investigators is characterized as a “tyrannical proceeding.”
3. Under the Talmud’s counterfeit Noahide Laws, the worship of Jesus is forbidden under penalty of death, since such worship of Christ is condemned by Judaism as idolatry.
4. Meanwhile various forms of incest are permitted under the Talmudic understanding of the Noahide code.
5. “While the Christians do generally accept the Hebrew Bible as truly from God, many of them (those who accept the so-called divinity of Jesus) are idolaters according to the Torah, punishable by death, and certainly will not enjoy the World to Come.”
6. If Gentiles refuse to live a life of inferiority, then this signals their rebellion and the unavoidable necessity of Jewish warfare against their very presence.
7. The Talmud authority takes precedence over the Old Testament in Judaism, and in the Israeli state it nullifies the Bible. Jesus Christ condemned the traditions of the Mishnah (early Talmud) and those who taught it (Scribes and Pharisees), because the Talmud made void the teachings of the Holy Bible. See how Our Lord pointed out and condemned the Mishnah: “There assembled together unto Him the Pharisees and some of the scribes, coming from Jerusalem…and asked Him: Why do not Thy disciples walk according to the tradition of the ancients, but they eat bread with common hands? But He answering, said to them: Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me…Making void the word of God by your own tradition, which you have given forth. And many other such like things you do” (Mk 7:1-13).
8. Today, in 2012, the Pharisees teach for doctrine the commandments of rabbis, not God. There is however a tiny Jewish sect called Karaites which makes considerable effort to adhere to the Old Testament alone, and are most hated and severely persecuted by orthodox Jewish rabbinate. It is my opinion that these are the Israelites of whom St. Paul wrote: “For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery (lest you should be wise in your own conceits) that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should come in, and so all Israel should be saved, as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, He that shall deliver and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob” (Rm 11:25,26).
9. Penalty for disobeying rabbis deserves death.
10.Talmud says Jesus’ mother was a whore: “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters.”
11. It says Jesus is in hell, and was executed by a proper rabbinical court for idolatry, inciting other Jews to idolatry, and contempt of rabbinical authority.
12. It attacks Christians and Christian books and one statement states: Jews must destroy the books of the Christians, i.e. the New Testament.
