When I was growing up, I thought that the threat to America was atheistic communism. After all, communist countries were clearly trying to stamp out Christianity. (They still are!) But in the 1980’s my perspective began to change. I began to see the world situation in biblical terms, where “Mystery Babylon” (or Secret/Hidden government of Babylon) was subverting churches and religion in general in order to prepare the way for occultism, witchcraft, and satanism.
In other words, it was becoming increasingly apparent that the real goal was not to destroy men’s belief in spiritual things or in an afterlife. The goal was to establish an occultic religion that no longer recognized the true God as having Creator’s Rights to rule the earth. It was to displace Jesus Christ as the Anointed One (Christ), called to rule the earth.
In His place, these occultists sought to usurp the earth for themselves. Strangely enough, they actually believed that this could be accomplished only by following God’s laws and by fulfilling prophecy. The problem was that their view of God’s was skewed by the rebellious condition of their hearts, which sought to use the law of God in a way that was advantageous to themselves.
In other words, they followed the traditions of men, rather than the law of God. They perverted the intent of the law by their misinterpretations, even as the Scribes and Pharisees had done in Jesus’ day.
Secondly, prophecy too was perverted, mostly in the past 2 centuries when the dispensationalist theory was invented by Darby and perpetuated by Scofield. In the early 1900’s Scofield was backed financially by a Jewish lawyer named Samuel Untermyer, who was one of the framers of the Federal Reserve Act and president of the occult Lotus Club in New York. His motive was undoubtedly political, laying the groundwork to convince Christians to blindly support the planned Jewish State.
This is a long story in itself, but the bottom line is that these occultic Zionists were planning to set up a Jewish state and needed the support of the churches to accomplish their goal. They found the Plymouth Brethren to be the perfect avenue to accomplish their goals, so they financed Scofield to write the notes in the Scofield Bible. Then they published his Bible through the Oxford University Press, even though it was not their policy to publish unknown authors.
This popularized the notion of Zionism that was arising at the same time that communism was advancing in the world.
Traditional Judaism forbade Jews from returning to the Holy Land prior to the coming of the Messiah. Millions of Jews today still hold that position and refuse to move to the Jewish state. Nonetheless, World War 2 lit a fire under European Jews, making it seem like a good idea for Jews to have their own state in Palestine. Persecution of Jews in Russia motivated Russian Jews to move as well.
The communist revolution in Russia was financed by Jewish bankers such as Jacob Schiff of the Kuhn Loeb bank. The early commissars of the Soviet Union came mostly from the Lower East Side of New York City. From then on, wealthy Jews persecuted lower-class Jews, first by pressuring them to convert to atheism, and second by making life so uncomfortable that many would see Zionism as a wonderful opportunity.
What few understood is that there was a subtle but steady push to replace religion with the belief in the occult. Faith itself was being replaced by positive thinking. Faith in the promises of God was being replaced by faith in man’s promises and affirmations, conjured up by the hopes and desires of men, rather than by the revelation of God.
In 1910 those who plotted the Federal Reserve Act gathered at Jekyl Island and met in a room that was built directly over an ancient altar of human sacrifice. There they used the occult to put a spell on their work so that men would be blinded to the precise nature of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The spell worked well, and from then on, only a few understood how it put America into financial bondage.
This corresponded to the Laodicean church era that began at the same time. This was the Church of the Captivity, which ran parallel to the 7th Old Testament Church. I wrote about this in The Revelation, Book 1, chapter 11.
Because the church did not repent during the Holy Spirit revivals in the early 1900’s, it became blind, poor, and naked, not knowing that it was heading into captivity in 1913.
The occult nature of big business has become more and more visible in recent years. As the time of God’s Kingdom has approached, we have seen opposition from some very wealthy men who hired witch doctors to issue curses and to hire assassins to try to stop those who have been called to be leaders in the coming Kingdom.
Their attempts have failed many times, and God has allowed them to try in order to prove to occultists everywhere that their power is no match for the power of Jesus Christ. As their power proves to be inadequate, God gives them the opportunity to repent and to recognize Jesus Christ as the One truly called to rule the world. Meanwhile, we undergo a measure of hardship and trouble in spiritual warfare, so that the enemies of Christ may have time to join the winning side.
We are here to tell them that God loved the world so much that He sent His Son to die on their behalf, paying the penalty for their sins. “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him” (John 3:17).
Our message, as ambassadors of the Kingdom of God, is to bring a message of reconciliation, “namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them” (2 Corinthians 5:19). We are not called to pass on a message of “turn or burn.” It is a message of reconciliation. It is a peace offering.
Many witches, satanists, and occultists are angry with God because the church has presented Him as being an unjust tyrant with a scorched earth policy. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Let me be the first to apologize for Christian blindness. I too was once blind to the true nature of God. I then learned about the Abrahamic calling, which was to be a blessing—not a curse—to all families of the earth (Genesis 12:3; Acts 3:25, 26).
God has vowed to save mankind—including all of His enemies. He will win them over by His love, not by His raw power. Those who turn to Him now will receive the greatest reward.
