    Dear Real Zionist News Family -

    Believe it or not, the text of this Video took hours upon hours of research.

    And believe me, OUR site, Real Zionist News, will ALWAYS be on the “cutting edge” of current events — whether it be the Vids, the Articles, or YOUR comments here on the RZN Comments Section. We ALL deserve an award for TRUTH in Media wouldn’t you say?

    Now, the “rebels” are NOT united, no, not by any means.

    The Zio-picked “National Front For The Salvation Of Libya” has a mean contender in the “Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.”

    There will be MORE civil strife, infighting, “car bombs” — suicide terror — ALL yet to come.

    And Gaddafi is one tough dude. Air strikes BOMBING his SOVEREIGN country by the Zionist Jews behind the scenes: WICKED Lieberman, NeoCONmen Jews, Kristol, Wolfowitz, Kagan, will NOT bring Gaddafi down. Only US boots “on the ground” could Possibly enact the Jew-loved “regime change.”

    Let’s see how this whole miserable WICKED Jew-inspired catastrophe all plays out. Hopefully, the Jews will eat unkosher crow.
    —-
    On Another Note.

    Although I refuse to be discouraged by the dropping numbers of donations — EVEN THOUGH I am working harder than ever to “earn a living” — I have to resort to CONTINUAL appeals for FINANCIAL help.

    Zionist News Online.

    I have to ($$$) pay ($$$) for:

    A Dedicated Server
    A Web Manager
    A Computer Technician
    Anti-Hacking Software
    Server-Watch Software
    Multiple Domain Names
    Remote BackUp Services for RZN
    Video Backups On Vodpod & Vimeo
    Research Materials
    Picture Upload Software
    News Subscription Services

    And Now:

    I have to buy a ($$$) Whole NEW “Specially Built” COMPUTER ($$$) to accommodate a ($$$) NEW VIDEO EDITOR ($$$) so that I can start making “movies” and documentaries.

    Many enjoy and like to comment on this RZN Comments Section but THIS COMMENTS Section is INCLUDED in the VERY HIGH COST of running this site.

    So.. I NEED ($$$) FINANCIAL HELP ($$$) dear Real Zionist News Family.

    My greatest concern is that for the last 4 months I have been spending more $$$ than what has been coming in.

    But THANKS to just a FEW benefactors that in their Christian good will WANT TO KEEP THIS SITE and my ministry ON LINE and ON THE STREETS, the shortfall has been recovered by THESE FEW.

    Again, PLEASE Consider Helping Me FINANCIALLY so that I don’t have to KEEP calling and depending on the “Few” to keep it all happening.

    “The REAL Tribe Seeking Regime Change In Libya”
    By Brother Nathanael Kapner
    Copyright 2011
    All Rights Reserved

    The Zionist media smokescreen would have people think the Libyan ‘Unrest’ is all about tribal warfare among the 140 different tribes in Libya.

    In REALITY, there is only ONE tribe behind the civil war in Libya - the JEWISH globalist Rothschild tribe fronted by Talmudic Jew Senator, and deadly dual citizen, Joseph Lieberman.

    The united forces of Zionist blood lust –Lieberman, the Neocons standing on their Project For A New American Century, and World Jewry – are demanding a new, more malleable puppet be installed in Libya.

    Once again, a sham Jew ‘humanitarian mission’ has penetrated another sovereign nation… bombing the smithereens out of a hapless, outgunned country with ‘humanitarian-tipped’ depleted-uranium munitions, reducing a country to nuclear ruins.

    In an Op-Ed Feature of the Wall Street Journal last week, Lieberman cut right to the chase – this time stripping his rant of any ‘humanitarian’ veneer – demanding that Obama effect a “regime change” to replace Jewry’s latest bogeyman, Muammar Gaddafi…so the TRIBE can take control of Libya’s oil and other resources.

    Lieberman argues that arming the ‘rebels’ will pave the way to a ‘democratic’ utopia (Read: Judaic hegemony) in Tripoli. How many times do Americans have to hear the same Zionist tribal lies before they figure the game out?

    The Talmudic Senator also claims the rebels are under the ‘moderate’ leadership of the “National Front For The Salvation Of Libya” headquartered in Washington.

    The truth is the group was founded, propped up, and funded by the CIA and Israel’s Mossad in 1981 – and is now using the name, the “Transitional National Council.”

    What lies, what doubletalk, what filthy deception!

    Lieberman also insists that any claims of “jihadists” being part of the rebel-mix are hollow.

    He’s lying…big surprise. For in Libya itself – not in Washington – the opposition is dominated by quite another faction, the “Libyan Islamic Fighting Group,” a group of mujahideens dedicated to replacing Gaddafi with an Islamic Caliphate.

    Using ‘democratic’ slogans for the benefit of Western Zionist news cameras – and Western Jewish funding – suits them just fine on the road to installing an Islamic sultan.

    But, in fact, the propaganda machine is firmly in the hands of Washington-centered Zionist puppet, Ibrahim Sahad, head of the Libyan Transitional National Council, who spins the usual lies before American audiences of “atrocities” and “massacres” by the new Hitler, Muammar Gaddafi.

    So, when you hear about Libyans being involved in ‘tribal’ wars, remember it’s the Zionist Jewish TRIBE you should really be hearing about.

    Even if CIA asset, Ibrahim Sahad, makes it to Tripoli, the TRIBE truly in charge will be the one from Tel Aviv!

    Yo Bro. Nathanael,

    The current agitprop from our FERAL (federal) GOVT is making me dizzy, and if it keeps up I’m going to develop a split personality disorder.

    Recall 9/11. Those of us here know it was the Israelis/Mossad but liar-in-chief George Bush said it was 19 Islamic Extremists. So I thought these were the bad guys. After all Iran is an Islamic state and they are our (Israel’s) enemy #1.

    So, let’s review: Iran - Islamic extremists - bad; 9/11 - Islamic extremists –bad; Libya — Islamic extremists — GOOD! This reminds me of the Roman god, JANUS, the dude with two faces. He’d say one thing and then twist his neck and contradict it with the other face.

    So far nobody in the Arab world has won anything with these revolts. In Egypt the #1 man, Mubarak, has retired and #2 his chief of the army has taken over. He’s a more vicious man than #1. He’s in charge of the US Rendition program, which is best called Tourism Torture, where you tour countries where torture is legal.

    Please support honest journalism, that you won’t see in your local Jewspaper.

    Brother Nathanael, fair and balanced journalism with a decidedly anti-semitic kick. And an aftertaste that doesn’t wear off quickly, lol.

    If you read here, please TITHE here. Please visit Bro. Nathanael’s online collection plate. It works! He will even write you back in thanks. Freedom isn’t free and nor are his expenses, cameras, computers, etc.

    Help OUR MAN take journalism to the next level. I know times are rough out there (they are here) but give what you can. You will be blessed in the long run

    Greetings in our Lord Jesus Christ, dear Br. Nathanael,

    Excellent presentation, and once again, dear brother in Christ, no punches pulled, straight to the point, and loaded with obscure facts not usually covered in the corrupt propaganda of the Jew-owned Media, that you find with your wonderful depth of research.

    It is so true, especially the focus on the various aspects of the ramping up against Libya and Qaddafi following the same old “Axis of Evil” script spewed through Lieberman’s lying lips.

    You summarized much of America’s problem right here:

    “Once again, a sham Jew ‘humanitarian mission’ has penetrated another sovereign nation… bombing the smithereens out of a hapless, outgunned country with ‘humanitarian-tipped’ depleted-uranium munitions, reducing a country to nuclear ruins.

    “Lieberman argues that arming the ‘rebels’ will pave the way to a ‘democratic’ utopia (Read: Judaic hegemony) in Tripoli. How many times do Americans have to hear the same Zionist tribal lies before they figure the game out?”

    Wake up, America, oh, please wake up!!!

    All of the Neoconned bogus wars against other countries - Iraq, Afghanistan, and the rest of the PNAC-targetted African and Middle East countries — are simply repugnant to the US Constitution because Israhell is not the 51st state of these United States.

    It really is astonishing how the Constitution is jettisoned by the US government’s knee-jerk reflex every time the Jewish Lobby screams for protection of the only democratically elected insane asylum in the Middle East.

    God bless you, dear +BN, and thank you for tireless labors and excellent standards of honest, truthful reporting.

    Is it just me, or are all the people tithing to Brother Nathanael feeling the blessings of our Lord?

  7. michael mazur April 4, 2011 @ 4:55 am

    I noticed Br Nathanael made no mention of 50,000 Black African mercenary troops - a significant omission, I guess because he didn’t believe it, even though there were 90,000+ entries for the search term ‘50,000 black African mercenaries Libya’ to entice him.

    But, an entry dated 4/4 linked to a lengthy Wayne Madsen (whom I trust) article clarifies things a great deal, for he says that the 50,000 is just a ‘ disinformation ploy by the CIA to stoke racist fervor among Libyans rebelling against Gaddafi.’

    For a whole month I was trying to square this story with the US/NATO assault on Gaddafi, given that serious cross purposes seemed to be therefore emerging between Israel and US/NATO, if at the same time 50,000 Black African mercs had been sent in by Israel in support of Gaddafi.

    Israel’s grip on US/NATO is therefore as strong as before, though there is much unwillingness by US/NATO to get into a ground war there as it is too hard to sell to domestic audiences.

    Al Qaeda: Pawns of CIA Insurrection from Libya to Yemen

    Under Bush and Cheney, the alleged presence of Al Qaeda was used as a pretext for bombings and invasions.

    Under Obama, an overstretched and moribund US-UK imperialism is using Al Qaeda as its own irregular infantry in the effort to harass and cripple the nation-states of the world, causing them to disintegrate into a tribal, sectarian, criminal, and warlord chaos.

    In the current phase, Al Qaeda has resumed its original status as CIA guerrillas. As a result, civilization itself is threatened across vast areas of the globe. If you are skeptical, just take a look at the city council of Darna, Libya.

    Globocop is on a roll!

    Odyssey Dawn is now over.

    Enter Unified Protector - led by Canadian Charles Bouchard. Translation: the Pentagon (as in Africom) transfers the “kinetic military action ” to itself (as in NATO, which is nothing but the Pentagon ruling over Europe). Africom and NATO are now one.

    The NATO show will include air and cruise missile strikes; a naval blockade of Libya; and shady, unspecified ground operations to help the “rebels”. Hardcore helicopter gunship raids a la AfPak - with attached “collateral damage” - should be expected.

    This is NATO’s first African war, as Afghanistan is NATO’s first Central/South Asian war. Now firmly configured as the UN’s weaponized arm, Globocop NATO is on a roll implementing its “strategic concept” approved at the Lisbon summit last November (see Welcome to NATOstan, Asia Times Online, November 20, 2010).

    Dear Brother Nathanael,

    I think the most important issue today is how the alternative media and internet are being infiltrated by an army of Zionist Jews posing as Christians and Jewish converts to Christianity.

    Then they say misleading and outright crazy things aimed at making a mockery of those who are genuinely interested in exposing the truth.

    Sometimes they make a mock attack against another hasbarat in order to refresh their camouflage, but a true understanding of the Jewish mind always leads to a person being able to see through these impostors.

    What is even more heartbreaking is that sometimes these pretenders even manage to divert the time, energy and yes money of the sincere but guileless goyim. Of course they are laughing all the way to the bank, as they have little need for money themselves. It’s just sheep shearing.

    Sometimes these people make theatrical costumes in red and black, or pose as Nazis in their storm trooper uniforms calling for “another Hitler”.

    But people who expose them get silenced, their comments end up deleted, they lose their you tube channels and even, as in the case of Curt Maynard (may his memory be eternal) get set up in an assassination which is made to look like a suicide or murder-suicide.

    Golly, it’s sure lucky nothing bad has happened to you.

    To all -

    Could it be that the Jews in the US want the dollar to remain as the world reserve currency?

    They depend on the dollar so much for their own support.

    Is this why they are trying so hard to corral the oil of the world? From the BIG picture, they surely realize that there is not enough of that yellow rock-gold to go around.

    Maybe they want oil to take the place of the gold in the world. It seems that they are unable to get rid of the 4 billions of the world population that they have planned to do without a HUGE international WWIII. And it seems that they are having trouble getting one started.

    No, I personally think that they are buying time. The Jew thinks that he has everything wrapped up. But I understand that during the TARP hearings, Ben Bernanke looked scared.

    Imagine that-a Jew looked scared.

    I think he was afraid that he and his fellow cabal travellers had lost it. Well, they will still lose it. Watch and see.

    P.S. Brother Nathaniel, I will be sending you a donation in a couple of weeks.

    Where do these so called “rebels” get the funding to buy the sophisticated weaponry that is required to take on a government?

    They have machine guns, rocket launchers and tanks amoung other deadly weapons.

    They must be funded by some wery wealthy entities. Follow the money and find the true war mongers.

    “Our Man in Tripoli”

    Moussa Koussa was “Our Man in Tripoli”.

    The circumstances of his defection as well as the history of his collaboration with the CIA and MI6, suggest that, for the last ten years, he has been serving US and Allied interests, including the planning of the “pro-democracy” armed insurrection in Eastern Libya.

    Fidel Castro on Libya

    I see Libya as a member of the Non-Aligned Movement and a sovereign State of the nearly 200 members of the United Nations.

    Never, a large or small country, in this case with only 5 million inhabitants, was the victim of such a brutal attack by the air force of a militaristic organization with thousands of fighter-bombers, more than 100 submarines, nuclear aircraft carriers, and sufficient arsenal to destroy the planet many times over. Our species had never encountered this situation and there had been nothing similar 75 years ago, when the Nazi bombers attacked targets in Spain.

    Now, however, the criminal and discredited NATO will write a “beautiful” little story about its “humanitarian” bombing.

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24105.

    Escalation of the Conflict: NATO Takes Command of the War on Libya

    The Vatican’s senior representative (vicar apostolic) in Libya, Bishop Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, recently decried the fact that NATO air attacks “are killing dozens of civilians.”

    He added that “In the Tajoura neighborhood [of the Libyan capital, Tripoli], around 40 civilians were killed, and a house with a family inside collapsed.”

    In early March Bishop Martinelli had pleaded against the “further spilling of blood” in the country, warning against outside intervention and saying any attempt at a military resolution of the Libyan crisis would only escalate the level of violence.

  14. Brother Nathanael April 4, 2011 @ 7:21 am

    @michael mazur -

    I could find NO proof whatsoever of African mercenaries sponsored by Israel/Mossad sent in to support Gaddafi.

    Those asserting this “Israel-sponsored” mercenary in support of Gaddafi provided NO PROOF at all.

    Simply for someone to say they have “inside information” or even make the claim whether openly or tacitly to have “inside information” is NOT proof.

    ALL of my assertions can be PROVEN.

    Simply Google anything that I assert and you will find all the support you need for what I state in my Vids AND in my Articles LOADED with embedded links and/or Bibliographies.

    In answer to arjan — sometimes.

    As for NATO merging with AFRICOM, NATO has always included North Africa so as to encompass the Mediterranean Sea.

    WW2 spread into North Africa as Germany sought to control the petroleum available as well as acquire control of the Mediterranean Sea. This strategy was not much different from how the Roman Empire expanded to take over the same real estate.

    NATO takes responsibility for the Suez canal and its surrounding region while AFRICOM covers everything south of the Sahara to include Kenya and the Bar el Maghreb at the entrance to the Red Sea. While much is made of keeping the Straits of Hormuz open in the Persian Gulf, the Bar el Maghreb leading into the Red Sea and to the Suez canal are just as vital to supplying Europe with petroleum.

    On another note, technology exists to extract petroleum from what are currently local yet “difficult sources.” No sooner will gasoline cost $5.00 per gallon than these sources will be tapped. The subsequent outflow will bring gasoline prices down below $2.00 per gallon. If this happens within sixteen months, Obama is nearly assured of reelection as the long-awaited recovery in the business cycle comes to fruition.

    Sadly, we will have to put up with this special-high-intensity-training through the current storm of events prevailing upon us. As soon as there is some relief from current pressures, it will be time to prepare for the next round of unseen events to shake up civilization.

  18. David April 4, 2011 @ 9:16 am

    The only problem I see with all this Jewish / Goyim dichotomy is that it simply isn’t true.

    For example, it’s the Rothschild banking cartel that has taken over Europe through the EU and the USA with the Federal Reserve. All other spin offs and organizations are funded by this family.

    By making it a war of Jew vs Goy aren’t you helping the Rothschild family by not exposing the fact that they became the most powerful banking family in the whole of Europe after the battle of Waterloo?

    I understand that the Talmud is full of anti non-Jew statements, but the same is true of Islamic teachings. Most Jews don’t even know that their holy text is the Talmud…they are just puppets themselves!

    Will you please do an expose on how the Rothschild family bought up the UK stock exchange after forwarding false information about the victors to the King?

    Thank you…

  19. Andrew Jackson April 4, 2011 @ 9:28 am

    Good and balanced episode dear Br. Nathaniel.

    The possible African mercenaries in Libya are still an unresolved question in my mind. As you said let us observe how this will unravel.

    Anytime anyone hears “Al-Qaeda” or “Islamic fundamentalism,” just replace those words with “MOSSAD/CIA,” and the puzzle will be easily solved.

    Hamas is a case in point; it was founded and funded by the Shin Bet, and may have broken loose later, even though they still occasionally provide some excuses for the Israeli Destruction Forces (IDF) to bomb, kill, and maim Gaza civilians at will.

    Remember KOSOVO? The “Muslim freedom fighters” who slaughtered the Orthodox Christians and started the war, and continue to destroy churches and monasteries right under the nose of an acquiescent NATO? Another classic MOSSAD/CIA operation, from start to finish.

    I am wondering if the Japanese nuclear catastrophe, set off by an earthquake and tsunami, could perhaps be a warning to France (which has 58 nuclear power stations) the UK and the US, to show them what could happen to them if they refused to invade Libya.

    The timing is very close. And I have read that the security company in charge of the power plant in Japan is Jewish and that there was some unexplained delay in acting to minimize the damages.

    And also we know that earthquakes can be set off by HAARP. So…

    Brother Nate South Korea NEEDS your HELP!

    The Korean-Talmud Love Affair

    Reports of the Talmud being a national classic in South Korea have been floating around for several years, but it’s now official:

    The country’s ambassador to Israel, Ma Young-Sam, told the “Culture Today” TV show that Talmud study is now a mandatory part of the country’s school curriculum.

    In addition, it is said, almost every home in South Korea boasts a Korean version of the Talmud, and mothers commonly teach it to their children, who call it the “Light of Knowledge.”

    Full article here: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/143192

    I read the article and immediately thought of you. I do know many Koreans have embraced Christianity so wonder how they could read & fall in love with such a anti-Christian book.

    @ Amir,

    What you have to understand Amir, as Dr. David Duke (no one has been more conscientious of the plight of the Palestinian than he) stated, in an open letter to Roger Waters (ex-lead singer of the British rock band Pink Floyd) Waters also is a protester of the Zionist regime, we American people, well many, don’t support Israel or the Zionists.

    Many Americans that do are brainwashed, almost like they are on drugs.

    Sticking up for Palestinians has cost me family members, reputation, actual threaten physical violence, but I do it because it is what God, and Christ want.

    As it states, the true “David” is now the Palestinian, and many in the west are Goliath.

    No true Christian would turn his back on any suffering people, and God knows the Palestinians have had more than their share.

    US, UK, FRANCE AND NATO HYPOCRITES

    What we are witnessing in Libya is hard to believe, the globalists must think that the citizens of their respective countries are stupid.

    SOME FACTS:

    -The “willing” say that they are protecting the civilians. ARE THERE NO CIVILIANS ON GADDAFI’S SIDE? WHY DO THEY BOMB ONLY THE LOYALIST TROOPS?

    -They should explain to us sheeple how do you enforce a no-fly zone by BOMBING INFANTRY AND TANKS (e.g. with AC-130 gunships). Are they dangerous for NATO’s warplanes?

    -It made me LAUGH to see them discussing ARMING THE REBELS! Does it get any meaner than this? An ARMS EMBARGO works BOTH WAYS, it is there to smother the fighting by letting BOTH SIDES run out of ammo and weapons. This hair-splitting discussions transpire the TYPICAL JEWISH SPIRIT. What can we expect from people that even try to cheat God !

    This war is for GEOSTRATEGIC reasons and for OIL. The US is bankrupt, it is in desperate need of oil. Its DAILY consumption (2010 data) of 19 million barrels is in contrast to its domestic production of only 5.5 million barrels (and declining!). Numbers are official!

    http://www.eia.doe.gov/steo/

    Result? 13.5 million barrels EVERY DAY must be IMPORTED, this gives an astronomic number of 567.000 BILLION US DOLLARS EVERY YEAR, just to pay for the OIL ACCOUNT! And this is paid mostly to “non-integrating states” such as Libya, Venezuela, Iran, to name a few!

    Result? If the US goes BANKRUPT, financing the US war machine is effectively impossible and the Jews LOSE their BATTERING RAM against all Nations!

    HOW CAN THE JEWS ESCAPE THE DEVASTATING JUDGEMENT OF OUR LORD IN HEAVEN?

    THEY BETTER REPENT, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

    HEMP is the link GOD made between humans and the Earth and everyday we do not make use of HEMP and all it can provide we suffer. The fact that INDUSTRIAL HEMP is illegal and demonized in the U.S. is very much proof of many of the claims on this site.

    We do not need nuclear power or fossil fuels in anyway what so ever. WE NEED INDUSTRIAL HEMP.

    It’s GOD’s gift to the human race and we have shunned it for no reason other than the greed and lies of evil people. PLEASE EVERYONE. Do some research. Get informed. DEMAND INDUSTRIAL HEMP.

    VERY SERIOUS!

    Reverend Ted Pike JUST posted an article on his site DENYING the Book of Esther as being part of the Biblical Canon.

    Reverend Ted Pike MUST be corrected of his error in denying the Biblical Book of Esther as being part of the Old Testament canon.

    Perhaps because he uses the King James and not the Septuagint he has gotten this errant view on the Biblical, Canonical book of Esther.

    Also, the BIBLICAL Book of Esther is TOTALLY MISUNDERSTOOD by Christian Zionists AND Rev Ted Pike for this book MUST BE UNDERSTOOD in its “cultural” / Old Testament Polity context.

    Please inform the misinformed Rev Ted Pike all of you who understand the seriousness of his denial that INDEED the 4th Century AD Holy Fathers of The Holy Orthodox Church RECOGNIZED the Biblical Book of Esther to be part of the Old Testament Canon and Holy Scriptures.

    It was the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church THAT ESTABLISHED the Biblical Canon of BOTH the Old and New Testaments.

    Here is Rev Pike’s Email address: tedpike@truthtellers.org

    I already contacted Jeff Rense of Rense.com to allow me the opportunity to refute Rev Pike’s error if the article gets posted on Rense.com. Here is the article by Rev Pike @ http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/PseudoBibicalEsther.html

    In Lecture IV of St Cyril of Jerusalem of the 4th Century AD to those preparing for baptism — he states SPECIFICALLY that the Book of Esther is part of the Biblical Canon.

    St John of Damascus of the 9th Century in his Exposition of The Orthodox Faith asserts the same.

    This is VERY SERIOUS for Reverend Ted Pike to DENY the canonical book of Esther as there is a warning for those who “subtract or add” to “what is written.”

    ONCE AGAIN - The Book of Esther is TOTALLY MISUNDERSTOOD by Christian Zionists AND Rev Ted Pike for this book MUST BE UNDERSTOOD in its “cultural” / Old Testament Polity context.

    The book of Esther (Monica Lewinsky of her age) is about a Persian King that while inebriated demanded his queen to dance naked in the court. The regal Queen of Iran refused.

    A certain Mordechai seized the opportunity to terrorize a Jewess — do read Esther — to do what the Noble Queen would not. Dance like a WHORE in front of the assembled court.

    Esther is about Genocide — 80,000 people killed in span of 3 days — of Haman and his tribe (which were not Persians, by the way ..). It is indeed part of the Biblical canon. A perfect record of a genocidal race.

    It has always amazed me that while even the Hebrew Bible recognized the decisive role played by Iranians in liberating the Jews from their captivity — Isaiah 45 names the Iranian King as a Messiah! — the Jews NEVER celebrate that event.

    Instead, every freaking year for the past n thousand years they celebrate the whoring of Esther and the unjust (how could it be otherwise? think) of 80,000 innocent souls.

    @Iranian -

    Which Bible do you use?

    Which ‘Opinion’ do you serve? Your own, obviously.

    NO WHERE in the HOLY SCRIPTURES does it speak in the HOLY BOOK of Esther of a “queen dancing naked” before an “inebriated King” and granting out of lust her request.

    Perhaps in your FANTASIES this is what you envision for your lusting spirit.

    You are ON THE EDGE of BLASPHEMY and you better be careful.

    As I STATE ABOVE - the HOLY BOOK OF ESTHER MUST BE UNDERSTOOD in its “cultural / Old Testament polity context.

    The “Israel of God” (ESTABLISHED BY GOD even though He is not mentioned in the book BUT Inferred!!!) THE CHURCH - was ABOUT to be wiped out throughout the Persian Empire, which would have EXTERMINATED the race from which The Messiah was to come, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Yahweh of the Old Testament.

    THUS - SOMETHING DRASTIC HAD TO BE DONE!

    Now, there is a cultural component to “warfare” in the Old Testament that people like you living in the 21st Century HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT.

    I don’t have time to go into it BUT I advise you my friend to STOP Making up FALSE TALES about what is in the Holy Writ.

    As I warned Reverend Ted Pike, there is a BIBLICAL warning for those who “add or subtract” from “what is written.”

    On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Bizzetha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains that ministered in the presence of Ahasuerus the king,

    To bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to show the peoples and the princes her beauty; for she was fair to look on.

    Brother N,

    Iranian women did NOT wear veils. To “show beauty” is to be understood in that context. For surely, the ‘face’ of the Queen of Iranians was not a hidden matter. It was her “beauty” that was a matter of intimacy.

  43. Brother Nathanael April 5, 2011 @ 12:17 am

    @Iranian -

    What you just wrote above — Exactly PROVES My point.

    What you quoted above was regarding the Queen Vashti NOT Esther.

    NO requests were asked or granted in that opening narration of the HOLY Book of Esther.

    A king “making merry with wine” does NOT prove “inebriation.”

    EVEN if so, Queen Esther was NOT INVOLVED here. Only LATER did she make her request and was granted NOT in any context as you originally stated of her “dancing naked” before an “inebriated king.”

    THANK YOU For PROVING MY POINT!

    Also, as regards Queen Vashti you would be hard pressed to prove that she was “dancing naked.”

    This is because SHE REFUSED to come to the king! And thus, an NEW Queen was sought for.

    THANK YOU AGAIN for PROVING MY POINT!

    You see, dear “Iranian” - I KNOW THAT YOU are NOT “Iranian” — I have read the Holy Bible from cover to cover over 200 times.

    You will NEVER pull your errant, unfactual “opinions” over my SCRIPTUAL eyes!

    The Orthodox Church TEACHES Regarding The BIBLICAL Book Of Esther

    First of all, that the Israel of God, the Church, was about to be exterminated by Imperial Order of the Persian Empire that extended through the civilized world.

    Two, although Mordechai may not have had proper motives in bringing his orphaned niece, Esther, to the palace to be hopefully selected as the new Queen, afterwards he realized WHEN THE “Israel of God” was about to be exterminated, that his niece had come be Queen for “SUCH A TIME AS THIS” so that she could SAVE the Church.

    It was either for the race from which the Messiah Jesus was to come to be saved or be lost.

    The HIDDEN PROVIDENTIAL HAND of God, although not mentioned, is SEEN in PRESERVING the Church and INSURING the coming of the Messiah to overturn the curse of death.

    World War III Scenario? The War on Libya, the US- NATO Agenda and the Next Great War

    by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

    In the 1930s the US, Great Britain, and the Netherlands set a course for World War II in the Pacific by conspiring against Japan. The three governments seized Japan’s bank accounts in their countries that Japan used to pay for imports and cut Japan off from oil, rubber, tin, iron and other vital materials. Was Pearl Harbor, Japan’s response?

    Now Washington and its NATO puppets are employing the same strategy against China.

    Protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, and Yemen arose from the people protesting against Washington’s tyrannical puppet governments. However, the protests against Gaddafi, who is not a Western puppet, appear to have been organized by the CIA in the eastern part of Libya where the oil is and where China has substantial energy investments.

    Eighty percent of Libya’s oil reserves are believed to be in the Sirte Basin in eastern Libya now controlled by rebels supported by Washington. As seventy percent of Libya’s GDP is produced by oil, a successful partitioning of Libya would leave Gaddafi’s Tripoli-based regime impoverished. http://www.energyinsights.net

    The People’s Daily Online (March 23) reported that China has 50 large-scale projects in Libya. The outbreak of hostilities has halted these projects and resulted in 30,000 Chinese workers being evacuated from Libya. Chinese companies report that they expect to lose hundreds of millions of yuan.

    China is relying on Africa, principally Libya, Angola, and Nigeria, for future energy needs.

    In response to China’s economic engagement with Africa, Washington is engaging the continent militarily with the US African Command (AFRICOM) created by President George W. Bush in 2007. Forty-nine African countries agreed to participate with Washington in AFRICOM, but Gaddafi refused, thus creating a second reason for Washington to target Libya for takeover.

    A third reason for targeting Libya is that Libya and Syria are the only two countries with Mediterranean sea coasts that are not under the control or influence of Washington. Suggestively, protests also have broken out in Syria.

    Whatever Syrians might think of their government, after watching Iraq’s fate and now Libya’s it is unlikely that Syrians would set themselves up for US military intervention. Both the CIA and Mossad are known to use social networking sites to foment protests and to spread disinformation.

    These intelligence services are the likely conspirators that the Syrian and Libyan governments blame for the protests.

    Caught off guard by protests in Tunisia and Egypt, Washington realized that protests could be used to remove Gaddafi and Assad. The humanitarian excuse for intervening in Libya is not credible considering Washington’s go-ahead to the Saudi military to crush the protests in Bahrain, the home base for the US Fifth Fleet.

    If Washington succeeds in overthrowing the Assad government in Syria, Russia would lose its Mediterranean naval base at the Syrian port of Tartus. Thus, Washington has much to gain if it can use the cloak of popular rebellion to eject both China and Russia from the Mediterranean.

    Rome’s mare nostrum (“our sea”) would become Washington’s mare nostrum.

    “Gaddafi must go,” declared Obama. How long before we also hear, “Assad must go?”

    The American captive press is at work demonizing both Gaddafi and Assad, an eye doctor who returned to Syria from London to head the government after his father’s death.

    The hypocrisy passes unremarked when Obama calls Gaddafi and Assad dictators. Since the beginning of the 21st century, the American president has been a Caesar.

    Based on nothing more than a Justice Department memo, George W. Bush was declared to be above US statutory law, international law, and the power of Congress as long as he was acting in his role as commander-in-chief in the “war on terror.”

    Caesar Obama has done Bush one step better. Caesar Obama has taken the US to war against Libya without even the pretense of asking Congress for authorization.

    This is an impeachable offense, but an impotent Congress is unable to protect its power. By accepting the claims of executive authority, Congress has acquiesced to Caesarism.

    The American people have no more control over their government than do people in countries ruled by dictators.less proud than was Japan in the 1930s and is unlikely to submit to being bullied and governed by what China regards as the decadent West. Russia’s resentment to its military encirclement is rising.

    Washington’s hubris can lead to fatal miscalculation. Washington’s quest for world hegemony is driving the world toward World War III.

    China is no less proud than was Japan in the 1930s and is unlikely to submit to being bullied and governed by what China regards as the decadent West. Russia’s resentment to its military encirclement is rising. Washington’s hubris can lead to fatal miscalculation.

    Dear Orthodox Brother Nathanael,

    Indeed the barbarian Xerxes (the translation Artaxerxes is false) celebrated a feast for 180 days where he had invited 15,000 barbarians in order to drink and eat and do other obscenities, like the Romans later also did.

    In the last 7 days of those orgiastic days he called his wife Astir (which means star) in order to show her beauty to his drunken co-barbarians.

    She did not come, because she was GENTLE. During the next four years the Old Testament does not tell us what happened, but we know from Greek historians like Herodot or Xenophon that the Persians were at war in Greece, where we kicked them out of Europe (about 480 b.C.).

    After these four years Xerxes wanted to marry a new wife and among the candidates he chose Esther for her beauty and her virtues. Mardochai taught her to be stable in her faith and her people, and she did it.

    Unfortunately the people know nothing about Septuagint, the Old Testament translated in Greek in the time of King Ptolemy.

    The Military Tax Collector Is Here Again

    Source
    Activist Post

    Gerald Celente, one of the world’s premier trend forecasters, recently made the boldest statement of his 30-year career. In the special report you’ll see below, he admonished the American people to “grow up” and take action about the latest debacle/war in Libya being waged in our name and on our dollar.

    He did NOT advise calling your senator, writing Congress, or any one of the other completely ignored protests by an oligarchy long past caring about the will of the people. He advised to stop paying taxes that support these wars.

    Serious tax protest always has been one of the fastest ways to land yourself in the ever-expanding American prison system. Why do you think this is?

    Because the system knows that it is the Achilles heel of the corrupt leadership and their crony corporate interests who steal from the American people to fund a military that is being assigned increasingly dangerous, doomed-to-failure missions that will only generate worldwide hatred for military personnel, America, and its people.

    The time has come for people of conscience to realize that a minimum of 54 cents of each tax dollar funds the military. Which is not to say this money supports the military. It only supports those who make money from military action.

    So, next time you write that tax check, then please at least add into the subject line: Halliburton, Kellogg Brown and Root, or any one of the other war profiteers who will reap your “support” of the military.

    Gerald Celente is correct: we need peace. Our leadership, according to every poll, is not listening to, or interested in, what we have to say. The time has come to withdraw support of their failed missions by making the strongest peaceful statement possible: refusing to pay for war.

    I would welcome reading Brother Nathanael’s refutation of Ted Pike and hope that that does not depend on Rense’s agreement to post it on Rense.com.

    The Primacy of the Roman Catholic Church is the TRUTH.

    The Orthodox would agree with everything we [ the Roman Catholics ] say concerning the origins of the Bible, but would just claim the Catholics broke away from the true (Orthodox) Church in 1054, rather than the other way around.

    There is no argument which can be made unless it deals with this issue – the historical issue of the Catholic Church’s primacy.

    With Orthodox “truth” like this, Christians cannot be led toward a right and balanced and Christ honoring discussions and understandings of Jews in today’s world.

    With wrong understandings regarding the primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, there will simply be disseminated more Christ dishonoring chaos, confusion and untruth, a few of the devil’s favorite things.

    The union of the church you wish is the Ecumenism, and that’s the religion of the Antichrist.

    I would deny Christ if I don’t tell you the truth.

    The primate was never of importance. Because Rome was the capital city when the Popes of Antiochia, Alexandria (the most important churches of that time!) Constantinople, Jerusalem and Rome met, the Pope of Rome was primus inter paris, that means, first among equals.

    The role of pope of Rome in the seven Holy and Apostolic Councils was not of any importance.

    We have a very complex situation in the U.S. due to the ethnic groups interfering with the decision of “who is in charge” of the military, foreign policy, economy, religious beliefs, etc.

    We cannot have a majority of Zionist Jews in any establishment. There should be affirmative action and quota when electing and hiring personnel.

    The problem America is facing today is one of “ethnicity individualism” rather than “We the People of America guided by the Constitution.” There is no unity and that in large part is due to the Zionist control and hatred toward other races mainly the Muslims and Christians.

    Zionist Jews have a serious psychological problem and that is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    Why I say this is, because the Jews are constantly over occupied in gaining control of monetary, status quo, usurpation of geography, etc. for their selfish survival. I have realized that most of the Jew Slaves that work for their Jew Masters undertake the mission for survival only.

    They despise and do not trust each other. The people have risked their lives and are paid with nothing. The meeting in the synagogue or other places is just a facade to show the world there is unity amongst them.

    Zionist Jews are afraid that U.S would collaborate with the Arab world and attack the Zionist culture. I believe that U.S. has played an immense role in deceiving the Jews. They have used Mujahideen to train the rebels to attack Ghaddafi’s group and on the other hand, U.S. under Obama has used African mercs to support Ghaddafi.

    It seems that this war in reality is between the good forces of U.S. and the wicked Zionist groups in the U.S.

    Politics has several heads and we the sheep are getting confused by the media, the politicians, and the goal of the defense department.

    I wish Lieberman and gang travel to Israel rather than create a civil dissension in the U.S. America will a peaceful country if this group leaves.

    America can start all over again with the help of God. This nation is a Christian nation and those of other religions should assimilate as best as they can in order to maintain the peace and unity.

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO FORGOT THAT GOD WAS WATCHING EVERYTHING GOING ON AND AS TO WHOM WAS GOING TO DEAL WITH THESE EVIL FOLKS,TAKE COMFORT IN THE WORDS OF THE LORD GOD.

    Micah 3
    Wicked Rulers and Prophets

    1 And I said:
    “ Hear now, O heads of Jacob,
    And you rulers of the house of Israel:
    Is it not for you to know justice?

    2 You who hate good and love evil;
    Who strip the skin from My people,[a]
    And the flesh from their bones;

    3 Who also eat the flesh of My people,
    Flay their skin from them,
    Break their bones,
    And chop them in pieces
    Like meat for the pot,
    Like flesh in the caldron.”

    4 Then they will cry to the LORD,
    But He will not hear them;
    He will even hide His face from them at that time,
    Because they have been evil in their deeds.

    5 Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets
    Who make my people stray;
    Who chant “Peace”
    While they chew with their teeth,
    But who prepare war against him
    Who puts nothing into their mouths:

    6 “ Therefore you shall have night without vision,
    And you shall have darkness without divination;
    The sun shall go down on the prophets,
    And the day shall be dark for them.

    7 So the seers shall be ashamed,
    And the diviners abashed;
    Indeed they shall all cover their lips;
    For there is no answer from God.”

    8 But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the LORD,
    And of justice and might,
    To declare to Jacob his transgression
    And to Israel his sin.

    9 Now hear this,
    You heads of the house of Jacob
    And rulers of the house of Israel,
    Who abhor justice
    And pervert all equity,

    10 Who build up Zion with bloodshed
    And Jerusalem with iniquity:

    11 Her heads judge for a bribe,
    Her priests teach for pay,
    And her prophets divine for money.
    Yet they lean on the LORD, and say,

    “ Is not the LORD among us?
    No harm can come upon us.”

    12 Therefore because of you
    Zion shall be plowed like a field,
    Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins,
    And the mountain of the temple[b]
    Like the bare hills of the forest

    This comment is off-topic, but nonetheless deserves attention.

    The recent fiasco in trying the co-conspirator Khalid Sheikh Mohammed under military commission in Gitmo has the Zionist/Mossad hand. The attorney general, Holder is debating that his trial hearing should be held in the civilian court.

    Don’t you think that we the people have a right to hear his confession? Are the Zionist perpetrators afraid of Khalid Sheikh to blurt out the truth in public? I pray to God that this man will tell the truth; nothing but the truth.

    I was shocked to see the picture of this man. He looks terrible. I hope truth prevails, because they use Muslims to partner with their crimes and the Zionist masterminds hide behind them. I hope Holder will fight for a civilian hearing.

    I write this, because justice does not seek impartiality, but the truth irrespective of race, etc.

    Xerxes had already sent out orders throughout the kingdom to destroy the Jews and couldn’t lift the mandate.

    He was able to send out orders that made it legal for the Jews to protect themselves from the onslaught. They fought in self-defense!! Read the whole story before you comment.

    Esther was pampered for over a year with cleansing and perfume before meeting Xerxes.

    During this time he was meeting with his generals to plan a new attack on Greece after getting his ass handed to him the first time. Esther went to Xerxes under fear of death to protect her people and she said if “I perish, I perish.”

    Truly Understanding The Book Of Esther
    By Brother Nathanael Kapner
    Monastic, Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR)

    Although Reverend Ted Pike means well in his effort to plug the flow from which Zionism may find its fountainhead by denying the Book Of Esther as being part of the Old Testament canon, I find him chargeable of “throwing out the baby with the bathwater.”

    Indeed, the BIBLICAL Book of Esther is TOTALLY MISUNDERSTOOD by the Synagogue, Christian Zionists, AND sadly, Rev Ted Pike, for this book MUST BE UNDERSTOOD in its “cultural” / Old Testament Polity context.

    First of all, the 4th Century AD Holy Fathers of The Holy Orthodox Church RECOGNIZED the Biblical Book of Esther to be part of the Old Testament Canon and Holy Scriptures.

    It was the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church THAT ESTABLISHED the Biblical Canon of BOTH the Old and New Testaments.

    In Lecture IV of St Cyril of Jerusalem of the 4th Century AD to those preparing for baptism — he states SPECIFICALLY that the Book of Esther is part of the Biblical Canon.

    St John of Damascus of the 9th Century in his “Exposition of The Orthodox Faith” asserts the same.

    Now, in TRULY understanding the Biblical Book of Esther, the Orthodox Church teaches that The “Israel of God” - THE CHURCH - was ABOUT to be wiped out throughout the Persian Empire, which would have exterminated the race from which The Messiah was to come, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Yahweh of the Old Testament.

    THUS - SOMETHING DRASTIC HAD TO BE DONE.

    The HIDDEN PROVIDENTIAL HAND of God, (although God is not mentioned in the Book of Esther), is SEEN in PRESERVING the Church and INSURING the coming of the Messiah Jesus to overturn the curse of death by using Queen Esther to avert the annihilation of The Church, “The Israel of God,” from which the Messiah Jesus was to come.

    For although Mordechai may not have had proper motives in bringing his orphaned niece Esther to the palace to be hopefully selected as the new Queen, after-wards he realized WHEN THE “Israel of God” was about to be exterminated, that his niece had come be Queen for “SUCH A TIME AS THIS” so that she could SAVE The Church and preserve the race from which the Messiah Jesus Christ was to come.

    The Jewish people of today have forfeited the right to be called the “Israel of God” since they denied, yes, and even their leaders crucified their true Messiah, Jesus Christ.

    And in still using the methodologies of the Old Testament of “warfare” which the New Testament did away with, (although wars of justifiable self-defense are allowed by the Orthodox Church), the Jewish people, as focused in their rogue State of Israel, use the Book of Esther and the attendant Feast of Purim, to perpetuate hatred toward the Gentiles through violent means.

    This said, by “throwing out the baby with the bathwater,” that is denying the Book of Esther as being part of the Biblical canon, Reverend Ted Pike avoids one error by making an even more serious error in using his own opinion to decide which books of the Bible are valid and which are not.

    This could only lead to denying the ENTIRE Bible as valid. I call upon my good friend Reverend Ted Pike to thus see his error and correct it.

    The real tribe which should be seeking repentance is the “Gentiles.”

    Jews, who are mostly atheists, do not know God, but Gentiles born under the Christian faith should know better how to conduct their lives.

    These I believe will be judged more harshly by God than the atheists who do not know God for they “dwelt in the house of the Lord” so to speak.

    And yet they live in opposition to Him by living in opposition to the entire Ten Commandments, which have by tradition, been placed as the centre of their lives, by their forefathers and even their not too distant, preceding generation. But which they whilst all the while knowing them, for they are written on their heart and engraved in their laws, have now been abandoned by them.

    If they would return to true Christian living, God would grant them victory over all their enemies both foreign and domestic.

    The “Jews made me do it” argument when it comes to pornography, abortion, bribery, the reason the government of America is compromised to the devil through the Jews and their malignant cancer freemasonry, which they control, and every other offence against the Ten Commandments is spurious in that it is akin to the excuse ” the devil made me do it.” Which no one accedes is a legitimate excuse.

    The representatives of the people have the greatest fault here because if they would set the example others would follow.

    If the Gentiles would only return to their God by obeying the rock of their faith, the Ten Commandments, which Christ sealed with his own blood on their behalf, no enemy, either an interrnal minority ethnic group, or a majority outside adversary, could prevail over them.

    Further to the above, like Christians, those Jews who believe in, honour and obey the Ten Commandments are not the problem. I don’t think anyone would argue with that.

    So it is unfair, as it is also with Christians, to lump them in with their aetheist and even satanist co-ethnics.

    Just as the politicians who have a grave responsibility and accounting before God at the last judgement bear the majority of the blame, so too the leaders of religion which call themselves Christian but are not, but do follow the atheistic Jews openly in the sight of God will also bear the wrath of God at the last judgement.

    Make your clothes clean therefore NOW in the time of visitation by God on you, of the punishments which you have so rigorously and persistently accumulated for yourselves in heaven with much labour in your rebellion.

    Even now, and those yet to come are the mercy of God poured out on you as a final warning to repent.

    The Book of Esther was written by the priest Ezra. I stand by the event that took place in Persia.

    Esther is depicted as a church who finds favor with the King to deliver her people from assault or annihilation. Mordecai said to Esther that she had found favor with the King at a time such as this, because God had placed her there and used her for a mission against all odds. The King was a powerful man who ruled the entire regions up to India.

    The Political Jews are using it to desecrate their faith in the God of Israel.

    What do we learn for the future? God can use people to save the remnant of Israel from their enemies.

    Similarly, in the Book of Revelation it states that there will be two witnesses; either Enoch & Elijah who will spread the message of Yeshua/Jesus and thereby 144,000 people from the 12 tribes will accept Jesus during the time of tribulation. So just rejoice! God has his own ways of protecting his remnant.

    However, in the Septuagint, the Greek version, the word “God” appears several times. The first time is verse 1:9 which describes a dream of Mordechai in which people “cried unto God.”

    Also, the Septuagint version describes Esther’s personal spiritual prayers.

    Sorry Bro Nate, HE MAKES A GREAT POINT: If Jesus is the Word, as we know he is, how do either of you refute his quote. Jesus being the Word: inspired both New and Old Testament? ( Please don’t CENSOR my posts)

    “Did Jesus, the Word of God who has inspired all other Scripture, inspire the book of Esther with its admonition to kill possible enemies before they kill you? Did Jesus inspire a book that glorifies Jews and omits all mention of the God of the Jews? Quite the contrary: Jesus deflated Jewish self-righteousness and racism. He admonished Jews to turn the other cheek to their Roman oppressors and warned that he who takes up the sword will die by the sword.” Extracted quote from Ted Pike

    Who Wrote Esther?

    THE PSEUDO-BIBLICAL BOOK OF ESTHER –
    MAINSPRING OF ZIONISM

    By Rev. Ted Pike
    5 Apr 11

    Every book in the Bible condemns the violent racism of modern Zionism… except one: the book of Esther. The source of the annual feast of Purim, Esther celebrates the Jews’ slaughter of more than 75,000 Gentiles. No Biblical book has so influenced evangelical attitudes toward Israel, especially in approving Israel’s brutality against Arabs. Esther thus plays a pivotal role for both Jews and Christians in their unconditional defense of the state of Israel.

    For nearly 2,000 years, a minority of Christian scholars have been troubled by the book’s omission of anything truly spiritual. Athanasius, some of the church fathers, and Martin Luther rejected it as apocryphal. The book never mentions God; nor do its protagonists, Esther and Mordecai. The Jewish people are delivered from annihilation yet never resort to prayer or thanking God afterward.

    Instead, this book exalts and appeals to racist Jewish tribalism and appetite for revenge. It began the now familiar Zionist theme: long-suffering Jews as victims of irrational hatred from murderous Gentiles. It celebrates the triumph of Jews who obtain peace not by faith in God but by slaughter.

    Ancient as it is, Esther’s message is current. It echoes the cries of Jewish protesters in Israel last month who shouted, “Kill Arabs! Kill those who want to destroy Israel! Kill them before they kill us! ”

    Is Esther a Jewish Fable?

    The story begins with King Ahasuerus (possibly Xerxes) around 450 B.C. desiring a new wife to replace rebellious Queen Vashti. But the names of the book’s hero and heroine, Mordecai and Esther, are derived from “Marduk” and “Ishtar,” the head male and female deities of Babylon! This should sound alarm bells to Christians.

    Why would supposedly pious Jews accept the names of the chief gods of Babylon, the moral cesspool of antiquity? Why is God’s name never mentioned, yet these names of Babylonian arch-deities are constantly honored?

    At the time of its writing (perhaps 150 years after Jewish exile under Nebuchadnezzar) Jews were rapidly reflecting Babylonian/Persian culture. The Jewish Encyclopedia indicates that by that time lay teachers, the “Sopherim,” forerunners of the scribes and Pharisees, were already absorbing the theology, customs, and superstitions of Babylon. Much of this would be included in the later Babylonian Talmud. At that time it was highly popular to name children after Marduk and Ishtar. In revealing that Jews were doing the same, Esther reflects an increasing Babylonian influence on Jewish theology and culture.

    In chapter 3 the king promotes a Hitler persona, Haman, above all princes in his kingdom. Did this really happen? The meticulous chronicles of Persia record no such person or, for that matter, “Queen Esther” or Mordecai.

    Haman hates the Jewish Mordecai and seeks to destroy all Jews. This is the classic Jewish stereotype: Gentiles inexplicably infected with the satanic “disease of anti-Semitism,” compelled to destroy God’s chosen people.

    The king, responding to a proposal made by Haman, thinks genocide of Jews in his kingdom is a good idea. Really? The record of the Persian kings was general respect for subdued peoples, not capricious annihilation.

    Mordecai, hearing of the “Holocaust” to come, laments but does not cry to God. Instead, he utters a loud and bitter wail, not unlike the “Never forget!” litany of modern Judaism. Esther takes action but with no reference to the Almighty. Fasting is commanded, but without even lip service to the God who could give such deprivation meaning and power.

    (Fasting is not uniquely Biblical or intrinsically demonstrative of faith in God. Ezekiel, in fact, reveals that apostate Jewish women wept in mourning for Tammuz, goddess of Babylonia. Ezekiel 8:11) Mordecai counsels Esther with high-sounding but pseudo-scriptural admonitions (Esther 4:13-14).

    The crisis ends when Haman, after attempting to hang Jewish Mordecai, is hung on his own gallows. It is discovered that Mordecai had once protected the king from assassination yet received no reward.

    Mordecai is exalted to the right hand of power in Persia. Now favorable to the Jews, the king authorizes the Jews to kill all of their enemies who are suspected of murderous intent. The book indicates that the king, having made the decree that the Jews should be killed, is bound under the laws of the Medes and Persians which says that imperial decrees cannot be revoked. Thus, he is forced to keep his original edict intact, while giving Jews the right to kill Gentiles first.

    Actually, this is a phony dilemma. By granting Jews the right to kill Gentiles, he has already blatantly violated his own edict. If the story were true, it would have been a small thing for the king to let Gentiles in all of his far-flung provinces know that special blessing and protection were now given to the Jews, throwing a wet blanket on any persecution of them. Again, the general history of Persia reveals the extreme unlikelihood of the Esther narrative.

    Yet the book asserts that on the day when the Jews should have been destroyed they attacked their enemies first, slaughtering more than 75,000. This is an act of war in a foreign land, a blatant violation of God’s commandment to the Hebrews under Moses not to take war into foreign lands (Deut. 2).

    The rationale of Esther is that if Jews suspect bias motivation against them that will endanger Jewish lives then it is their God-given right to take preemptive action and kill Gentiles first. This is exactly what the Talmud recommends, and it infuses the mentality of the IDF in Israel against Palestinians today. It is the basis on which the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith portrays Jews as perennial victims of hateful, anti-Semitic, even homicidal bias motivation on the part of Gentiles. Such paranoia deeply undergirds ADL’s mentality that only hate crimes laws, outlawing such forbidden thoughts, can solve the problem of anti-Semitism.

    Jewish revenge under Mordecai is the basis of the feast of Purim, celebrating both Jewish paranoia and vengeance. It is now the ethical standard for the Jewish right to revenge in Palestine. It also empowers Israel to violate the sovereign territory and air space of other nations in order to violently stop possible aggression against Israel. Doesn’t Mordecai’s program perfectly express Israel’s demand that the U.S. and other nations join her in launching preemptive air strikes against Iran?

    The book concludes with Mordecai exalted to power in Persia. It forgoes even a mention of God. Some have suggested that either Ezra or Nehemiah wrote the book of Esther. Yet in both the books named after them, these great prophets took every opportunity to supplicate, praise, and thank God—actions conspicuously and perversely absent from Esther.

    Who Wrote Esther?

    Did Jesus, the Word of God who has inspired all other Scripture, inspire the book of Esther with its admonition to kill possible enemies before they kill you? Did Jesus inspire a book that glorifies Jews and omits all mention of the God of the Jews? Quite the contrary: Jesus deflated Jewish self-righteousness and racism. He admonished Jews to turn the other cheek to their Roman oppressors and warned that he who takes up the sword will die by the sword.

    The Talmud says Esther was written by the “men of the great synagogue,” the proto-Sanhedrin of 120 elders during the beginning of the intertestamental period following the last of the great Hebrew prophets. This is probably close to the truth. It casts great suspicion on the canonicity of the book.

    Jesus said “the tradition of the elders had made the law of God of none effect.” (Matthew 15:1-8) Esther was a Babylonian import to Judea, and it is almost certain that the priests of Jerusalem, on the recommendation of Babylonian proto-Pharisees, enshrined it in the Hebrew canon.

    There is one more powerful reason to believe this. The Dead Sea scrolls date back to between 150 and 70 BC and include the oldest known copies of the Old Testament. The Scrolls were preserved by the Essenes, who disapproved of the Pharisaic establishment in Jerusalem. This historic collection contains every book of the Old Testament exceptEsther.

    Esther continues to bear evil fruit, right up to the latest news from Israel about Jewish settler violence against the Palestinians. Truly inspired Scriptures like Habakkuk, Malachi, and Zechariah—which existed just before the appearance of Esther—do not stimulate the persecution complex, self-righteousness or anti-Gentile violence that Esther does. Earlier, Jeremiah 29:4-9 strongly admonished Jews to dwell at peace and seek the welfare of the nations in their dispersion.

    Who Decides What is Scripture?

    In the final analysis, every believer has the right to decide whether a book of the Bible bears witness to divine inspiration. The Christian is not bound to mindlessly follow church councils in any age. Personally, the Holy Spirit forbids me to recommend Esther.

    Some may object, saying, “Shouldn’t we be generous and see the overall high-minded message in Esther?” If an expert is analyzing a possibly counterfeit $100 bill, he does not adopt a “positive” point of view. He gives tenacious attention to the ways the bill under suspicion does not live up to the genuine. Every Christian is obligated to similarly “try the spirits… for many false spirits are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

    Someone may also object that God would never allow His Bible to be contaminated. Well, He allowed His perfect creation in Eden to be so corrupted. Christ permitted one of His twelve disciples to be taken over by the devil. God does not want us to trust in anything above Himself, even in the Book He inspired. His Holy Spirit’s still small voice, “leading into all truth,” remains our ultimate authority. The Holy Spirit guided the remaining eleven disciples perfectly. He can also guide us in a world of counterfeit voices.

    Rejecting Esther does not undermine the rest of the Bible. Holy Scripture (excepting Esther and perhaps the Song of Solomon, which was introduced during the same period) bears powerful witness of divine inspiration. Truly inspired Scripture is as impervious to attack as a Sherman tank before a BB gun.

    In conclusion, do Christians have the right to include a book in the Bible which does not mention God’s name, offers no prayer or thanks, and exalts Jewish heroes and the Jewish people while demonizing Gentiles? Esther does not emphasize that we are saved by abiding in God through faith. Instead, it says Jews are saved by being suspicious of the motives of others, even killing them en masse.

    I am not in danger of heresy by excluding Esther from the Bible. Those most in danger are those evangelicals in our time who stand on this book to sanction the most despicable atrocities by Israel against the Palestinians. (See, Israel: Founded on Terror)

    All books have value when they are put in to the context when written. Even though we mock Spielberg and his ilk, when put in to the context of our modern times, it shows the programming that Nation States subject their citizens to.

    The Bible is an excellent book however, I believe it’s been flawed by the hand of mankind and centuries of manipulation.

    Like having a time machine to see what your neighborhood looked like a 1000 years ago. It would be nice to have known what the original Bible conveyed to us.

    Indeed, the BIBLICAL Book of Esther is TOTALLY MISUNDERSTOOD by the Synagogue, Christian Zionists, AND sadly, Rev Ted Pike, for this book MUST BE UNDERSTOOD in its “cultural” / Old Testament Polity context.

    First of all, the 4th Century AD Holy Fathers of The Holy Orthodox Church RECOGNIZED the Biblical Book of Esther to be part of the Old Testament Canon and Holy Scriptures.

    It was the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church THAT ESTABLISHED the Biblical Canon of BOTH the Old and New Testaments.

    In Lecture IV of St Cyril of Jerusalem of the 4th Century AD to those preparing for baptism — he states SPECIFICALLY that the Book of Esther is part of the Biblical Canon.

    St John of Damascus of the 9th Century in his “Exposition of The Orthodox Faith” asserts the same.

    Now, in TRULY understanding the Biblical Book of Esther, the Orthodox Church teaches that The “Israel of God” - THE CHURCH - was ABOUT to be wiped out throughout the Persian Empire, which would have exterminated the race from which The Messiah was to come, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Yahweh of the Old Testament.

    THUS - SOMETHING DRASTIC HAD TO BE DONE.

    The HIDDEN PROVIDENTIAL HAND of God, (although God is not mentioned in the Book of Esther), is SEEN in PRESERVING the Church and INSURING the coming of the Messiah Jesus to overturn the curse of death by using Queen Esther to avert the annihilation of The Church, “The Israel of God,” from which the Messiah Jesus was to come.

    For although Mordechai may not have had proper motives in bringing his orphaned niece Esther to the palace to be hopefully selected as the new Queen, after-wards he realized WHEN THE “Israel of God” was about to be exterminated, that his niece had come be Queen for “SUCH A TIME AS THIS” so that she could SAVE The Church and preserve the race from which the Messiah Jesus Christ was to come.

    The Jewish people of today have forfeited the right to be called the “Israel of God” since they denied, yes, and even their leaders crucified their true Messiah, Jesus Christ.

    And in still using the methodologies of the Old Testament of “warfare” which the New Testament did away with, (although wars of justifiable self-defense are allowed by the Orthodox Church), the Jewish people, as focused in their rogue State of Israel, use the Book of Esther and the attendant Feast of Purim, to perpetuate hatred toward the Gentiles through violent means.

    This said, by “throwing out the baby with the bathwater,” that is denying the Book of Esther as being part of the Biblical canon, Reverend Ted Pike avoids one error by making an even more serious error in using his own opinion to decide which books of the Bible are valid and which are not.

    This could only lead to denying the ENTIRE Bible as valid. I call upon my good friend Reverend Ted Pike to thus see his error and correct it.

    @ Vox -

    You are QUITE WRONG.

    The Holy Scriptures in their DIVINE INSPIRATION have been PRESERVED by the Orthodox Church over the centuries AND ARE PROFITABLE, as St Paul teaches:

    “ALL SCRIPTURE is INSPIRED BY GOD and is PROFITABLE for For Reproof, FOR CORRECTION, FOR DOCTRINE, For Instruction in Rigtheousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly instructed unto ALL GOOD WORKS.”

    Holy Scriptures are NOT FLAWED!

    This is what I wrote to Rev. Ted Pike, whom I respect and admire in many respects, but who is unfortunately WRONG on the book of Esther.

    WHY?

    Because he is reading it from the tampered Masoretic Text and not from the AUTHENTIC TEXT, THE SEPTUAGINT!!!!!!

    As an Orthodox Christian, I know what the original and correct Bible is. It was canonized by the Orthodox Church and is STILL used by the Orthodox Church.

    In Christ Yahweh (Ο ΩΝ),
    The God of the Old and New Testaments.

    AJ

    Dear in Christ, Rev. Ted Pike,

    Your disdain for the book of Esther is understandable, since its Masoretic version is written in a purely political perspective and does not even mention the name of God even once. The original text is however preserved in the Septuagint.

    If you read it in the link below you will see that several paragraphs have been completely deleted by the Jews after the Pharisaic council of Yavneh (Jamnia) in 90 AD and by the Masoretes up to the 11th century.

    The vision of Mordechai, the prayers of Esther and Mordechai, and the Macedonian nationality of Haman have been excised by the Jews.

    The Jews tampered with the Masoretic text for centuries, until it was finally fixed in the 11th century. It is tragically the text used in the Catholic and Protestant translations, whereas the Orthodox Bible is based on the Septuagint.

    Please read the LXX version of Esther here, and compare to the MT.

    http://ecmarsh.com/lxx/Esther/index.htm

    Below are some relevant comments I have previously written:

    SEPTUAGINT versus MASORETIC texts of the Old Testament.

    Or

    Another example to show that the Christians, and not the Jews, are the Chosen People of God.

    The Old Testament of the Orthodox Church, the Church established by the Lord Jesus Christ, is the translation into Greek of the Hebrew text (now lost) made by Jews in the 3rd century B.C.

    It is known as the Septuagint (from the Latin septuaginta, seventy, because legend has it that seventy or seventy two translators were said to have done the work: it is abbreviated LXX).

    Some version of the LXX was cited by the Lord Jesus Christ and His Apostles in the New Testament, and by the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Catholic Church.

    Saint John Chrysostomos (+ 407) explains:

    “So long as (the Old Testament)… remained in the Hebrew tongue, nobody at that time was likely to be interested in it, the rest of the human race (non Israelites) being reduced to utter savagery.

    “But when Christ was due to appear and call the whole world to Himself, not only through the Apostles but also through the Old Testament authors — for they too guide us to faith in the knowledge of Christ — then it was that He caused the Old Testament works, like some entrances and paths previously closed by the obscurity of the language, to be opened up to all-comers through translation, so that all who came flooding in all directions from the nations and traveling these paths might succeed through them in coming to the kingdom of the inspired authors …, adoring the Only-Begotten Son of God.”

    “That was the reason that even before the time of the coming of Christ they were all translated, since if they had remained in the Hebrew idiom alone — and yet David had said, ‘Ask of Me (God the Father) and I shall give You (God the Son) the nations for Thy inheritance, and the ends of the Earth as Thy possession’ (PSALM 2:8)— how would the Syrian or the Galatian or the Macedonian or the Athenian have been likely to realize what was said, with Scripture remaining in obscurity?”

    “Likewise, Isaiah cried out, ‘He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, like a lamb mute before its shearer’ (ISAIAH 53:7); and again, ‘There will be a root of Jesse, and one rising to rule nations: in Him nations will hope’ (ISAIAH 11:1); and again, ‘The Earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, like floods of water covering seas’ (ISAIAH 11:9). And David further said, ‘God ascended with a shout, the Lord with sound of a trumpet’ (PSALM 47:5); and again, ‘The Lord said to my lord, Sit on My right hand until I put Thy enemies under Thy feet’ (PSALM 110:1).”

    “Since, then, the Old Testament foretold the Passion, the Resurrection, the Ascension, the Seat at the right hand, His Second Coming, and in short all the contents of the New (Testament), Divine Grace before the coming of Christ arranged for the translation of the Scriptures (from Hebrew into Greek), lest these things remain unknown to the nations due to come later, and they be unacquainted with the force of Old Testament composition.

    “It was to render (the Old Testament scriptures) useful, not for those from the nations alone, but also for those Jews scattered everywhere throughout the world who had lost the Hebrew language.”

    The 1851 translation of the Septuagint by Sir Lancelot C.L. Brenton is virtually the only version in English, and is therefore valuable.

    The writings from which all modern Roman Catholic and Protestant Bibles render the Old Testament are known as the Masoretic text, from massorah, the vast body of notes on pronunciation, accents, and variant sources written — from 600 A.D. to the 10th century — in the margins and at the end of manuscripts by Jewish scribes known as Masoretes (God tells the house of Israel through the prophet Ezekiel: “I will take note of you as you pass under My rod. And I will bring you into the bond [be-ma-so-ret] of the covenant” [EZEKIEL 20:77]).

    This later Hebrew text, the Masoretic Text (abbreviated MT) is often corrupt — one rabbi said it is twenty five per cent unintelligible — and filled with anti-Christian emendations.

    In her book ECUMENISM: A PATH TO PERDITION (on line at ecumenism.tripod.com) Dr. Ludmila Perepiolkina (now an Orthodox Christian nun whose name I do not know) writes in the chapter Falsifications of Holy Scripture:

    “The mission of both the Old and the New Testament Church had always been and still remains to guard and to preach the inviolate divinely-revealed Faith and God’s Promises, the Holy Scriptures and Tradition.

    “Well known is the particular care with which the text of the Scriptures was guarded in the Old Testament times, when every Biblical manuscript which was damaged or contained mistakes was subject to destruction, when no one having some speech defect could even be admitted to reading aloud from the Scriptures in public.

    “The ancient Church translation of the Old Testament books into Greek, the so-called Septuagint, was accomplished in the 3rd century B.C. by the specially appointed and God-chosen men, and it was done with all possible precautions and reverence, and under the direct protective guidance of the Heavenly Church …

    “Worthy of the original (Hebrew) are the canonical translations accomplished by holy men in the New Testament Church: that of Blessed Hieronoymus (Jerome), translating from the Old Hebrew, with due regard for the Septuagint (at first: he later changed his mind), into Latin; and of the Saints Equal to the Apostles Methodios and Kyril (translating from the Greek text of the Septuagint) adapted by the Church into Church Slavonic.

    “From the period of the Reformation onwards …, translations of the Bible into ethnic languages appearing in the West already have an imprint of Protestant teaching, such as Luther’s… In the most recent times there are no longer any restrictive barriers to the development of even the most extreme and blasphemous false teachings.

    “The spectrum of translations and transpositions of the Bible has widened accordingly.

    “It could not have been otherwise, inasmuch as Holy Scripture belongs only to the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, and its use out of contact with the ecclesiastic and Patristic tradition — and even in opposition to it, which is characteristic of all religious communities that have fallen away from the Orthodox Faith — inevitably entails distortion of …Scripture.

    “According to the Fathers, one who is outside the sacramental communion of the Church cannot but deviate into heresy and away from preaching true Orthodoxy.

    “Human folly is not the only cause of distortion of truth. The word of God is hateful to the ‘father of lies,’ the devil, who, with the help of his minions, attempts to pervert it in every way possible.

    “With the falling away from God of those who became His killers and called down upon themselves and their descendants the Blood of the Son of God Whom they crucified (MATTHEW 27:25), there began a conscious corruption of the Old Testament books once carefully guarded by (the Jews). Messianic prophecies were the first to undergo this corruption.

    ” ‘Rabbis corrupted the contents of the Scriptures to suit their own malicious intentions …, and (they) still keep modifying it,’ wrote Euthymios of Chodovo in 1705 (CONTRIBUTION OF THE SAINT PETERSBURG THEOLOGICAL ACADEMY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF BIBLE STUDIES, Hieromonk Aleksy, Moscow 1986, p. 205)… Such accusations have been heard since Apostolic times … In (the Masoretic text) practically all prophecies about the Savior of the world have been distorted in such a manner that they could not be seen as referring to the Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    For example: in GENESIS 49:10 the LXX says “A ruler shall not fall from Juda (the tribe which began with Judah the son of Jacob, the tribe from which will come the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Christ), nor a prince from his loins, until there come the things stored up for him (the prince from Juda’s loins is the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Christ), and He is the expectation of the nations.” That last sentence is not in the MT.

    In the LXX HOSEA 6:2 says: “On the third day He shall raise up and we shall live.” The MT says “on the third day He shall restore us,” dimming the reference to the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    In the MT missing from HABAKKUK 3:5 are the words, “Before His face shall go the Word (Logos),” that is, the Lord Jesus Christ.

    In the LXX Isaiah 42:19 says, “And who is blind but My servants?” (plural). The MT, though, says, “And who is blind but my servant?” (singular). Jews use the MT to demonstrate, to their satisfaction, that the Lord Jesus Christ cannot be the servant depicted in Isaiah, because their text says the servant is blind. Yet the older text, the LXX, says “servants” — which means all Israel is blind, but not Christ.

    In the LXX MIKAH 6:15 prophesies the passing away of the Law which Christ gave through Moses: “You shall sow, but you shall not reap; you shall press the olive, but you shall not anoint yourself with oil; and shall make wine, but you shall drink none: and the ordinances of My people shall be utterly abolished:” the MT omits the last sentence.

    The LXX AMOS 4:13 proclaims “For behold, I am He Who strengthens the thunder and creates the wind and proclaims to men His Christ.” The Masoretes omitted the last phrase.

    In the LXX Habakkuk says, “For the vision is yet for a time, and it shall shoot forth at the end, and not in vain; though He should tarry, wait for Him, for He will surely come and will not tarry.” The Masoretes rendered “He” as “it”, to de-Christify the sacred text.

    Well, the pre-Christian pre-Masorete Jewish translators who gave us the LXX rendered the words that the pre-incarnate Christ spoke to Moses from the burning bush — ’EHYEH ASHER EHYEH’ — as εγω ειμι ο ων (ego imi o on).

    In Orthodox Christian icons the nimbus that surrounds the head of Christ is inscribed ο ων, which means “He Who Is.” By this means the iconographers were transmitting the Orthodox Christian teaching that Jesus Christ is GOD, He Who spoke to Moses. He has not tarried.

    Discovery of the Qumran manuscripts (Dead Sea Scrolls) …, relating to the first century B.C. (i.e., to the pre-Masoretic period) has conclusively resolved in favor of the Septuagint, the centuries-old controversy of the comparative merits of the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Old Testament.

    It has turned out that the manuscripts removed from the Qumran caves contain all the variants of the text which are available in the Greek Septuagint manuscripts and which seemingly undermine their authority. Nevertheless, these conclusions are hushed up … [by the Jews and the modernist so-called scholars].

    Along with the widespread modernizations of liturgical language and rites, the introduction of the Western Gregorian calendar, and other countless concessions to the spirit of the times, these translations based on the Masoretic text increasingly destroy the link of these churches with their own Orthodox past, and prepare the ground for any further reforms aimed at the creation of the ecumenical pseudo-church of Antichrist.”

    Because of this tampering with the Masoretic text, Jewish scholars cannot support their claim that the MT brings us closer to the language in which God spoke to man.

    Indeed, even the Jewish translators of TANAKH (that is the Torah, the Neviim, and the Ketuvim; the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and the Writings): A NEW TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES ACCORDING TO THE TRADITIONAL HEBREW TEXT (The Jewish Publication Society, Philadelphia, New York, Jerusalem, 1985), after asserting that their work “represents the collaboration of academic scholars from the three largest branches of organized Jewish religious life in America” (xv), admit that sometimes the translators “did not understand a word or passage” (xviii).

    The Jewish author of the preface offers the opinion that “the prophetic books contain many passages whose meaning is uncertain” (xix), and yet Jews are “certain” that those passages are not about Jesus Christ.

    For instance, concerning DANIEL 9:26, which says the anointed one will be destroyed, the editor writes: “meaning of Hebrew uncertain.” For him, it must be uncertain, for it is about the Lord Jesus Christ! The author of the preface admits that “to provide an intelligent rendering, modern scholars have restored to emending the Hebrew text” (xix).

    He admits, too, that some of these emendations came from the LXX! The old Hebrew text from which the LXX was made was of course more accurate than the Hebrew texts which compose the Masoretic tradition.

    The author of the preface even admits that “the traditional accentuation occasionally has been replaced by an alternative construction.” His final admission: “The as yet imperfect understanding of the language of the Bible or what appears to be some disorder in the Hebrew text makes sure translation of many passages impossible” (xx).

    And yet Jewish Biblical scholarship is founded on the assumption that the MT is superior to the LXX. But even the rabbis of the Talmud, the written collection of oral teachings which the Pharisees and their spiritual descendants the rabbis claimed God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai, say that God Himself inspired the hearts of each of translators of the LXX (MEGILLA 9a), which would include the translation of ISAIAH 7:14 as “a virgin (παρθένος) will be with child and will give birth to a son…,” an 8th century B.C. prophecy of the Virgin Conception and Birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Saint Justin Martyr (+ 150) tells us that the Jews “had altogether taken away many Scriptures from the translations effected by those seventy elders.”

    Therefore we should be very suspicious of the Roman Catholic and Protestant, and now Pseudo-Orthodox, tradition of using the Masoretic text as the source for the Old Testament.

    The SEPTUAGINT is the original and true WORD OF GOD, without any shadow of a doubt!!!!!!!!!

    The SEPTUAGINT IS THE OLD TESTAMENT OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH!!!!!

    The Jewish and Protestant custom of substituting for the Name Yahweh the words “the LORD” is well known. Jewish scribes, thousands of times, pointed (gave vowel signs to) the Name Yahweh — which is part of the Hebrew verb “to be,” and it means HE IS — so that the reader would pronounce it “Adonai,” which means “Lord.”

    They did this thinking they were showing the Almighty respect by not causing whoever would read the text to utter the Name of God and thereby relegate Him to the mundane realm of just another thing among things.

    We’re told the Jewish scribes were trying to preserve the otherness of God, so they would have the reader say Adonai (Lord) each time the original text had said Yahweh. The Protestant translators of the King James Bible (1611) rendered Adonai (truly, Yahweh) in English as “the LORD,” the capitals meaning, “The Name of God, Yahweh, was originally used, but we Protestants shall adopt the Jewish custom and have you the reader avoid pronouncing it, as if we were all ‘pious’ Jews.

    The Protestants adopted the Jewish canon chosen by the rabbis at Yavneh in 90 A.D. and excluded the seven so-called apocryphal books (TOBIT, JUDITH, FIRST MACCABEES, SECOND MACCABEES, ECCLESIASTICUS, WISDOM, and the longer version of ESTHER), all of which the Jews who had translated the Septuagint had included in the 3rd century BC.

    These so-called apocryphal books were however included in the first edition of the King James Bible!

    Of course both the Jews and the Protestants are gravely in error, since Yahweh Himself says, “This Is My Name for all time: thus I am to be invoked for all generations” (EXODOS 3:15). How can we invoke the Name without being able to read it or say it?

    Furthermore, and most important, I repeat: one sees on Orthodox Christian icons in the nimbus surrounding the sacred head of the Lord Jesus Christ the inscription “ο ων,” that is, “εγω ειμι ο ων,” the Greek translation of what God spoke to Moses, out of the burning bush: “I Am He Who Is” (EXODOS 3:15): Jesus Christ is Yahweh — as is the Father and as is the Holy Spirit, for God is indivisibly Triune.

    I have demonstrated that the Jews have distorted and changed the original text of the Old Testament with a palimpsest of multiple emendations, which is what the present Masoretic Text really is.

    I have also demonstrated that the Septuagint, used exclusively by the Orthodox Church, is the correct original text, which is used in all OT quotes in the New Testament.

    For example:

    St. Steven the Proto-Martyr says that a total of 75 souls went down with Jacob to Egypt, including Joseph and his family.

    Acts 7:[14] Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.

    The Masoretic text (MT) contradicts the NT and says 70 souls.

    Genesis 46:27 (MT) All the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.

    The SEPTUAGINT (LXX), however, gives the correct number, the same as in the New Testament.

    Genesis 46:27 (LXX) All the souls of the house of Jacob who came with Joseph into Egypt, were seventy-five souls.

    Food for thought!

    Since the Jews distorted the OT, they would also surely strive to distort the NT, with their allies, the wayward “churchians,” the liberals, atheists, and humanists.

    In Christ Yahweh (Ο ΩΝ),
    The God of the Old and New Testaments.

    @ Bro Nate,

    “The HIDDEN PROVIDENTIAL HAND of God, (although God is not mentioned in the Book of Esther), is SEEN in PRESERVING the Church and INSURING the coming of the Messiah Jesus to overturn the curse of death by using Queen Esther to avert the annihilation of The Church, “The Israel of God,” from which the Messiah Jesus was to come.” - Bro Nate

    That is an excellent reply too, Nate, I never looked at it in that vain, but you are right, the race had to be preserved for the Messiah to come forward.

    Also, we mustn’t forget in the Old Testament: divinity had not yet become man, or have the “human experience” it is also why you see such a paradigm shift from an “eye for eye” to “turn the other cheek.

    Why would anyone not want to keep posting? It is just Pike’s opinion, he put his opinion forward, and you gave an equally good retort from your Orthodox dogma and teaching.

    I have to admit, I still cradle the fence, not sure which is right?

    Brother Nathanael, what do you think about this Masoretic vs. Septuagint thing? In all honesty, I am confused. I am reading the King James Bible since the beginning of 2010, and I love it. Is there any proof that the Jews altered the Masoretic text?

    The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls does not prove anything.

    But - it should make all CHristians feel better about the MINIMALITY of human error in Bible translation and transcription over the centuries, and better about the possibility of manipulated Bibles

    A pleasant thought that may be true is that God planned this discovery to answer that very possible doubt people had about the authenticity.

    According to sources I trust (such as the below YouTube video) the words in the Dead Sea Scrolls match up very very closely and accurately to today’s Old Testament

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxdoJJhVsEA

    This video corroborates what - Justice now - says about the book of Esther, that it was not discovered.

    Like Brother Nathanael says this lack of discovery of the Book of Esther in the Dead Sea Scrolls doesn’t prove anything either way about the legitimacy of the book of Esther

    However, I think it is somewhat significant that all the other books were found except for the book of the Esther. It might even be an argument FOR the authenticity of the Book of Esther, it also might be an argument against its authenticity.

    For now, I don’t share Bro Nathanael’s reverence for the opinions of the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church, though I have nothing against them either.

    As a devout Catholic, I accept everything Holy Mother Church teaches, including the Book of Esther. I just thought it was interesting that the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) contain no evidence of that one book. Not sure what that means.

    Another recent and possibly *more” exciting archeological find was discovered in Jordanian caves a few years ago, near the caves where the DSS were found. An Israeli Bedouin found/bought/stole little books of lead codices with images of Jesus which have been scientifically dated to around 2,000 years ago.

    So how does Israel get their hands on these finds? The Jordanian government is demanding their return, since by International law antiquities belong to the country in which they are discovered. Good luck with that. Israel still won’t return the DSS! Interestingly, the Israeli Bedouin now has an attorney from Haifa!

    A rich New York Jewish businessman bought the DSS and donated them to Israel. They were put up for sale in the Wall Street Journal on June 1,1954 by Syrian Orthodox Metropolitcan Athanasius Yeshue Samuel.

    Of course, we don’t NEED the DSS or codices or the Shroud of Turin to confirm our faith, but it’s exciting to think we could find empirical evidence of at least the early Jewish converts’ belief in the Messiah to corroborate the New Testament. Kind of like the True Cross that St. Helen found in the Holy Land, i.e., not necessary but nice to have nonetheless.

    If these codices support a finding that Christ was the Messiah, look for Israel to control them and never release them.

    Cultural Cleansing in Iraq: Why Museums Were Looted, Libraries Burned and Academics Murdered By Prof. Raymond W. Baker, Prof. Shereen T Ismael, Prof. Tareq Y. Ismael
    Publisher: Pluto Press 2010

    Why did the invasion of Iraq result in cultural destruction and killings of intellectuals?

    Convention sees accidents of war and poor planning in a campaign to liberate Iraqis. The authors argue instead that the invasion aimed to dismantle the Iraqi state to remake it as a client regime. Post-invasion chaos created conditions under which the cultural foundations of the state could be undermined.

    The authors painstakingly document the consequences of the occupiers’ willful inaction and worse, which led to the ravaging of one of the world’s oldest recorded cultures. Targeted assassination of over 400 academics, kidnapping and the forced flight of thousands of doctors, lawyers, artists and other intellectuals add up to cultural cleansing.

    This important work lays to rest claims that the invasion aimed to free an educated population to develop its own culture of democracy.

    Wow, this article made me question my whole belief system. Interpreting the Bible on my own.

    http://orthodoxinfo.com/inquirers/tca_solascriptura.aspx

    I was baptised as a baby child in a Greek Orthodox Church.

    However, I never looked at the Orthodox faith on my search for God. Now I have to reconsider my state.

    If it is not too much to ask for, Brother Nathanael, could you pray for me?

    Dear Basileos,

    I assume you are of Greek Orthodox origin.

    Please know that Orthodoxy is the biggest, most important treasure that you have inherited. it is most important, most valuable, by far even from your Greekness, which I am sure you are very proud of - and rightly so.

    If there is anything at all that you should keep hold of from your heritage, then it is the True and Orthodox Cristian Faith.

    But the heavenly gifts of the Spirit, are so much more valuable than the gifts of the flesh.

    Therefore, please consider looking more into the Orthodox Faith, and I mean the real faith, the theology, dogmas,methods and practices and recover this treasure for yourself.

    The Septuagint, as many stated before me, is the authoritative text, written in the indisputable defining language of Christianity, which is Greek. That’s not to say that other languages cannot be used in Christianity of course, but it rather means that Greek was by the grace of God, used in order to preserve the integrity and specificity of the written Word.

    This is because, Greek is the ultimate God given tool for describing something specifically, without ambiguity and error. And this is NOT because of the Greeks ,for Greek belongs to anyone who cares to be specific, and not just the Greeks, but rather because of Gods providence and preparation of the “grounds” so that Greek could eventually be used to preserve scripture.

    And it was not only scripture that was preserved in this way. Christianity’s defining dogmas and theology, were almost all expressed in Greek, for the same reasons and by the providence of God. Take a look at the first 7 ecumenical councils, the Creed (or Symbol of the faith) and the writings of the Fathers, on which any later “version” of Christianity was based on. They were all recorded in Greek.

    The reason for this, I am sure to the dismay of many westerners, is far from just circumstantial as I stated above.

    The Old Testament, is absolutely NO exception to this fact. Again, by the providence of the Holy Spirit, it was made so, that it was written in Greek, so that in that specific version, the integrity of what is written and expressed remains safe, indisputable, unmodifiable and incorruptible.

    For any attempt to corrupt it, will lead to heresy. a single example of this, is the obvious “filioque” change that the Roman religious community has taken upon it self to introduce and support. The result? Blasphemous heresy.

    And a more hands on view:
    Not only does the Septuagint predate the Masorah, but, it was the Septuagint that was quoted by Jesus Christ, and generally in the New Testament.

    In contradiction to what the western world believes, Jesus Christ and certainly His Apostles, were saturated in the prevalent for the time Greek Hellenistic culture, which of course included at least basic knowledge of Greek, if not extensive knowledge. This situation compares well to the prevalence of the English language in practically all nations today, where people of most nations know at least a little bit of English, of not taught to a good level at school from an early age.

    And this was something that was present for many years before the Arrival of Jesus Christ in this world. And this is the practical reason for the existence of the Septuagint in the first place, so that the Hebrews of that time, who knew Greek better than the Hebrew of the time, could read the Scripture from a text that was fully understandable.

    Take for example:

    A quote of Psalm 40 (or 39 depending on which version you have), is used VERBATIM, in the New Testament Hebrews 10:6. The quote in Greek, matches EXACTLY the Septuagint (no need to know greek to see that the words are matched exactly):

    As quoted in the New Testament:
    θυσίαν καὶ προσφορὰν οὐκ ἠθέλησας, σῶμα δὲ κατηρτίσω μοι· 6 ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ περὶ ἁμαρτίας οὐκ εὐδόκησας· 7 τότε εἶπον· ἰδοὺ ἥκω, ἐν κεφαλίδι βιβλίου γέγραπται περὶ ἐμοῦ, τοῦ ποιῆσαι, ὁ Θεός, τὸ θέλημά σου.

    As written in the Septuagint:

    θυσίαν καὶ προσφορὰν οὐκ ἠθέλησας, σῶμα δὲ κατηρτίσω μοι· ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ περὶ ἁμαρτίας οὐκ ἐζήτησας. 8 τότε εἶπον· ἰδοὺ ἥκω, ἐν κεφαλίδι βιβλίου γέγραπται περὶ ἐμοῦ· 9 τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ θέλημά σου, ὁ Θεός μου,

    Thus, it is the Septuagint that is validated trough the New Testament. And not the Masorah based collection of writings that in many cases have changes which are there obviously to usurp and alter the meaning of the Old Testament, not the least of which, is the Prophecies of our Saviour Jesus Christ.

    I am afraid, that this kind of comparison, can ONLY be done with the original language of the Bible. It is therefore wise for any seekers to at least consider that what they believe about the Bible, cannot be verified until they can know for sure, what the Truth is in the original texts.

    As I said before, it is NOT required to know Greek to be a Christian. However, if a need arises to verify and validate scripture or any Christian Dogma, then, referring back to the Greek, is the way to find out the Truth.

    In Christ our Lord,

    Stav

    On another note,

    It must be obvious to anyone, that if what Ted Pike claims is wrong, which it is of course, then, a couple of serious questions are automatically raised, to any thinking person:

    1) If this prevalent protestant thinking is so wide spread and so wrong, then what other errors are also prevalent within these communities?

    2) And if there are serious errors in the understanding of the origin of scripture and acceptance of the full scripture, then, is it not time, to correct these errors and return to the original Church, who have kept their faith correct, unaltered and genuine?

    The answer to 1) is obviously, yes, there is a severe lack of understanding of the Christian Faith, Jesus Christ, His message, the Church and it’s traditions, within these communities.

    The answer to 2) is then obviously, yes, it is time that whoever wants to be 100% correct and 100% Christian, then they MUST reconsider what community they belong to, and MUST try to understand fully the full extent and depth of Christianity.

    It is time, to shed their “fear of the Jews” and stick closely and faithfully with the WHOLE Truth and nothing but, REGARDLESS of the consequences…

    “What About the Apocrypha?

    The 11 to 16 books of the Apocrypha were written in the 400 years between the close of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New. While the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches treat some of these books as Scripture, Protestant Christians never have. Why is this?

    The Jews never considered them as part of the Hebrew Scriptures. They believed that there was, throughout that period, no voice of the prophets in Israel. They looked forward to a day when “a faithful prophet” would appear (1 Maccabees 9:27).

    For the Jews, God’s revelation of the Scriptures through the prophets ended around 430 BC with the book of Malachi.

    Jesus and the Apostles never considered the Apocrypha as part of the Scriptures. Although there are hundreds of quotations and allusions to the Old Testament in the New Testament, never did Jesus or the apostles quote from the Apocrypha.

    Incidentally, the authors of the Bible do refer to other books, but this does not make them Scripture. For example, Jude 14–15 refers to the book of Enoch, which is not part of the Roman Catholic Apocrypha.

    Unlike the Old Testament prophets, none of the books of the Apocrypha ever claimed divine authority. Some parts of the Apocrypha contain historical blunders.

    The community who copied the Dead Sea scrolls never gave the same authority to books of the Apocrypha as to the Old Testament books.”

    “Who is pushing the Septuagint?

    So why do we still hear the story? Why do people give it a second thought? Are there other reasons why they still try to use the Septuagint to find “original readings” that were supposedly “lost from the Hebrew”?.

    1. Roman Catholics Need It

    According to the Roman Catholic Douay Bible:

    “…the Septuagint, the Greek translation from the original Hebrew, and which contained all the writings now found in the Douay version, as it is called, was the version used by the Saviour and his Apostles and by the Church from her infancy, and translated into Latin, known under the title of Latin Vulgate, and ever recognized as the true version of the written word of God” —Preface,1914 edition.

    So Roman Catholics desperately want the Septuagint to be genuine —even inspired! You see, the so-called Septuagint is where they got the Apocrypha (books that are not inspired and have no place in our Bibles). If the Septuagint goes, then the Apocrypha goes with it!

    2. Ecumenical Textual Critics Need It

    The supposed text of the Septuagint is found today only in certain manuscripts. The main ones are: Codex Sinaiticus (Aleph); Codex Vaticanus (B); and Codex Alexandrinus (A). That’s right. The Alexandrian manuscripts are the very texts we call the Septuagint!

    In his Introduction to The Septuagint with Apocrypha: Greek and English (1851) Sir Lancelot Brenton describes how some critical scholars have attempted to call the Septuagint by its real name, the Alexandrian Text, but the name never stuck. Thus he admits that they are one and the same.

    So we have textual critics who believe desperately in the 45 Alexandrian manuscripts (against more than 5,000 copies favoring the Textus Receptus). They use these to translate all modern New Testaments. But these Alexandrian manuscripts also include the Septuagint Old Testament (with the Apocrypha). They have fallen for a trap.

    Catholics now argue the following: If you accept the Alexandrian text (which modern scholars use as the basis for all new translations) for your New Testament, then you also have to accept the rest of the Alexandrian text (Septuagint), which includes the Apocrypha. What we are seeing is the development of an ecumenical Bible, including the Apocrypha. Some versions have already gone this way. For many Protestants, all roads are truly leading to Rome.

    3. We Don’t Need It.

    But do we Christians need the Alexandrian manuscripts? Not at all! For the Old Testament we have the Preserved Words of God in the Hebrew Masoretic text. For the New Testament we have the 5,000-plus manuscripts in Greek, plus the many early translations spread abroad, to witness to the actual words of Christ and His apostles.

    So the Septuagint story is a hoax. It was not written before Christ; so it was not used by Jesus or His apostles. It is the only set of manuscripts to include the Apocrypha mixed in with the books of the Bible, so as to justify the Roman Catholic inclusion of them in their Bibles. And it is just those same, perverted Alexandrian codices — the same ones that mess up the New Testament — dressed up in pretty packaging.

    Let’s stick to our preserved Bible, the King James Bible in English, and leave the Alexandrian perversions alone.”

    @ Brother Nathanael

    “I WILL FIGHT TO THE DEATH FOR THE HOLY FATHERS OF OUR HOLY CHURCH!”

    Jesus Christ says in Matthew 23:9-10:

    “And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be you called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.”

    Why then are you calling the early followers “Holy Fathers”?

    Either you are a follower of Jesus Christ or you follow the “traditions of men”.

    Either you “die for the holy fathers” or you live for eternity in Christ!

    Your choice brother…

  99. Michael Kelley April 6, 2011 @ 8:06 am

    Dear Andrew Jackson,

    In support of your most needed lesson about the Masoretic Texts vs. The Septuagint, I would like to offer this research in support:

    The difference between the texts could not be more striking than in the case of Judges 19:2. Here the Jews have added a whole sentence to the original text:

    LXX: Judges 19:2 “but his concubine left him and returned to the house of her father, to Bethlehem in Judah. She returned there for four months”

    Masoretic Text: Judges 19:2 “And his concubine played the harlot against him, and went away from him unto her father’s house to Beth-lehem-judah and stayed there four whole months.”

    What we appear to have here is a revision of the text which intends to make the Levite’s actions appear at least to be superficially justified, whereas the LXX makes it pretty clear that she is an innocent victim of abuse at the hands of all the men who use her.

    This is consistent with the historical and ongoing need of the Christ-rejecting Pharisee rabbis for self-justification and the appearance of aggrieved or victim status.

    Another interesting tie-in, is that the most authoritative book in Judaism, the Babylonian Talmud (not the Torah which is only to be interpreted through the Talmud) says that the Blessed Virgin “played the harlot” herself, and she too was from Bethlehem in Judah, making it seem possible that this post-Christian revision of the OT was intended to cast aspersions on our most pure and faithful saint by way of implying that the women of Bethlehem were always whores:

    Sanhedrin 106a . Says Jesus’ mother was a whore: “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters.” Also in footnote #2 to Shabbath 104b it is stated that in the “uncensored” text of the Talmud it is written that Jesus mother, “Miriam the hairdresser,” had sex with many men…

    Perhaps the Masoretic Text even does symbolic violence to her, as she is in some way symbolically tied to this unnamed concubine from Bethlehem.

    In fact, there is little or no justification (except where the Masoretic text has been added to for this explicit purpose) for anything the Levite does in Judges 19. From the outset we have a member of the priest class behaving in a hard hearted and self-serving manner. He takes a concubine, which is a lawful wife but one who is only entitled to room and board, a sort of live in sex slave. While the law permits this, it does not bless it.

    Second, she returns to her father to get away from him, presumably (in the LXX) because he abuses her. The Levite shows up to claim his property, her father tries to persuade him to stay there for his daughter’s sake, detaining him for several days with generous hospitality, but the Levite owns his daughter by law, and eventually takes her away again. On the road they stay as guests in the Gibeah, a city of Bejaminites, where as in Sodom the men of the city demand to rape the Levite. Instead, the cowardly Hebrew abandons his wife to be savagely beaten and raped by the men and he goes back inside.

    Beaten from head to toe, the concubine has only strength left to crawl to the threshold of the house where her husband is staying, but instead of being brought in and ministered to, she is left out in the cold to die while the Levite gets a good nights sleep. In the morning he loads her up on his donkey like a sack of potatoes, and upon returning home cuts her body apart, which is presumably so revolting in appearance being covered from head to toe in bruises and cuts, that it tells a story and gives evidence to what happened to the twelve tribes.

    Following that is a war in which the key episode is repentance and oblation to the ark of the covenant at Bethel before Israel is granted victory over the Benjaminites by divine providence. But, disturbingly, the story ends by saying that even after that, “…every man did that which was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25) Compare this to the New Age and Witchcraft motto: “Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”

  100. Brother Nathanael April 6, 2011 @ 8:35 am

    Dear Joshua -

    St Paul called himself a “father” when he told the Galatians that “though they might have many teachers but one FATHER, for he had begotten them through the Gospel.”

    Also, you call your own parent, “Father, or perhaps, “dad” … same thing.

    What Christ was trying to teach the Jews who were under the thrall of the Pharisees was that they were NOT to allow these pseudo-religious leaders to USURP the authority of God in their relationship to the people = WHICH = as Michael A Hoffman points out in his book, Judaism Discovered, the Jewish leaders EVEN TODAY still do in their Talmudic mind-set.

    Your choice, either to remain in your narrow-minded mind-set in taking “Bible verses” out of context, or getting baptized into the TRUE CHURCH, the Holy Orthodox Church wherein the Holy FATHERS do not usurp the authority of Christ.

    To All

    There is another angle which I personally have of the Old Testament stories.

    What if God chose those known today as the Jews to try to save them from his severe chastisement for their manifold sins? What if those known today as Jews have for thousands, perhaps millions, of years been guilty of the same sins. The sins of their father, the devil whom they follow. God is eternally merciful and this could be why he chose them.

    He sent his son, Yeshua-Jesus, through them to ask for their reprentance from their sins. Sins that all of the prophets had accused them of. God, the Father, even promised to blot out the sins of their past if they would do so. But they never did.

    Throughout the Old Testament, the Jews are shown as killing everyone in sight. Could this be the reason that God himself made the Old Testament part of the bible? He wanted the world to see just how bloody they were? And how will they be saved if they are to be saved? Only God knows.

  104. ET April 6, 2011 @ 1:12 pm

    Donna, one thing I learned that prior to creating the Universe, Adam, and Eve, God had issues with Lucifer who rebelled Him.

    He was cast to the earth. However, God had to show his justice by creating man in His image to worship him by free-will and not by a robotic machine.

    When the Serpent saw God had created man in the garden of Eden and the beautiful nature for man’s sustenance, the serpent was envious. The story goes on to show that Eve was deceived and the human race fell short to the glory of God.

    Not only the first human creatures had to leave the garden of Eden, but received a judgment and were cursed.. (Genesis). Thereafter, Satan the Lucifer held the key to death and Hades. His rampant deception we are witnessing today.

    God in His wisdom used His own Son reincarnate God to die for us so that by His death we can be healed. Yeshua/Jesus holds the key to death and Hades.

    We have everlasting life in Yeshua; He paid it all. He has defeated Lucifer and his time is short.

    Discussing about the Jewish remnant, they are rebellious despite seeing many miracles of God. They need a new birth in Yeshua rather than the laws.

    The law is good, but does not bring in the salvation of deliverance. Only by confession and faith in His son Yeshua that they can have a new life.

    God is patient and long suffering and He in His perfect plan of redemption will deliver Israel from bondage of sin and wickedness.

    God cannot be mocked and his justice is for sure. His patience should never be underestimated. God’s words stand forever true.

    During Noah’s time, people mocked at him while he took many years to build the ark. He warned people and lo and behold, the rain and flood arrived!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Septuagint

    The FIRST english translation of the Septuagint was made in 1808, so for hundreds of years all English speaking Christians read the wrong Bible???

    Are you serious? This is NOT common sense.

    The King James Version is the ONLY reliable English translation of the Holy Scriptures!

    For PROOFS read “New Age Bible Versions” by Gail Riplinger or watch her videos on youtube.

    BTW the best and most accurate German translation of the Bible is “Schlachter 2000″, which is like the King James Version based on the Textus Receptus!

    Dear Joshua,

    The West is by any objective standard corrupt, Judaized and fallen away from the grace of God. How is it NOT common sense that the English speaking people have been reading the wrong Old Testament?

    Preface to the KJV proclaims Zionism under the whore witch queen E-lizard-beth, and evokes a comparison between King James and the Sun, in an obvious reference to Masonic and Egyptian pagan belief:

    “Great and manifold were the blessings (most dread Soveraigne) which Almighty GOD, the Father of all Mercies, bestowed upon us the people of ENGLAND, when first he sent your Majesties Royall person to rule and raigne over us.

    “For whereas it was the expectation of many, who wished not well unto our ZION, that upon the setting of that bright Occidentall Starre Queene ELIZABETH of most happy memory, some thicke and palpable cloudes of darkenesse would so have overshadowed this land, that men should have bene in doubt which way they were to walke, and that it should hardly be knowen, who was to direct the unsetled State:

    “The appearance of your MAJESTIE, as of the Sunne in his strength, instantly dispelled those supposed and surmised mists, and gave unto all that were well affected, exceeding cause of comfort; especially when we beheld the government established in your HIGHNESSE, and your hopefull Seed, by an undoubted Title, and this also accompanied with Peace and tranquillitie, at home and abroad.”

  110. Joshua April 7, 2011 @ 12:08 pm

    @ Michael Kelly

    One of the reasons that the West TODAY is so corrupt is that since the early 1900s most people in the West do NOT read the King James Bible or other Bible translations based on the Textus Receptus!

    Most people TODAY read Bibles translated from CORRUPTED manuscripts (e.g. Septuagint) from Alexandria, Egypt. Alexandria at that time was the hotbed of occultism:

    “The libraries [of Alexandria] were surely in decline under Christians who, following their triumph over pagans, Jews, and Neoplatonists, found the Hellenic riches of the libraries discomfiting. Their anger reached a fever pitch in the fourth century A.D.:

    Theophilus, patriarch of Alexandria, desired the site of the temple of Serapis for a church; he set loose a mob of Christians, who destroyed the pagan temple, and perhaps, the books of its library as well…

    The libraries of Alexandria probably shared a modest fate, moldering slowly through the centuries as people grew indifferent and even hostile to their contents. Ancient Greek, never a linguistic monolith in any case, became incomprehensible to Alexandrians of the Christian era with their mixture of Coptic, Aramaic, Hebrew, Latin, and Koine, or demotic Greek.

    Ignored by the generations to whom they were indecipherable, the scrolls would have been damaged…stolen, lost, and yes, burned. They were replaced by writings of the Fathers and Doctors of the church and by the thinning literature of the declining Roman world.”

    Antioch vs. Alexandria

    “…the about 5250 manuscripts of the New Testament can be divided into two groups: the vast majority coming from Antioch (the original text) and a very small minority from Alexandria (the spurious text).

    Alexandria and Egypt are mentioned in the Bible exclusively in a negative way: see GENESIS 12:10-12; EXODUS 1:11-14; EXODUS 20:2; DEUTERONOMY 4:20; DEUTERONOMY 17:16; REVELATION 11:8; ACTS 6:9; ACTS 18:24; Acts 21; ACTS 27:6.

    Alexandria was a centre of education and philosophy (COLOSSIANS 2:8) which it received from Athens in about 100 B.C. (ACTS 17:16). There was a school of the Scriptures founded there by one Pantaenus who was a philosopher.

    Pantaenus interpreted scripture both philosophically and allegorically. That is to say that philosophically he believed truth to be relative, not absolute. He did not believe that the Bible was infallible.

    By looking at the Bible allegorically he believed that men such as Adam, Noah, Moses, and David existed only in Jewish poetry and were not true historical characters. He was succeeded as head of the school by Clement of Alexandria and later by Origen. Men who shared his scepticism.

    It was Origen, deceived by the duel intoxicants of education and philosophy who upon receipt of pure copies of scripture altered them to parallel his twisted thinking.

    He is the father of all Bible critics and is not only responsible for the physical manuscripts which delete such verses as LUKE 24:40, ACTS 8:37 and 1 JOHN 5:7, but he is also responsible for the Alexandrian philosophy parroted by so many of our fundamental scholars who claim that “The Bible is perfect and infallible” with one breath and then state, “The Bible has mistakes and mistranslations” with the very next.

    It is this demented ideology that gave birth to the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts in the first place. Thus we see that not only are the physical manuscripts of Alexandria corrupt and to be rejected, but the Alexandrian philosophy, that the Bible has mistakes in it and must be corrected, is even more subtle and dangerous and must be forsaken by true Bible believers.”

    “What was it about Antioch that was so attractive to God that He chose it as the centre of New Testament Christianity?

    Antioch although it was a cultural centre, had not abandoned itself to pagan religion, pagan education and pagan philosophy, as had such prominent sites as Rome, Athens, and Alexandria.

    It might also be weighed that Antioch, unlike the above-mentioned cities, or even Jerusalem, was located almost exactly in the middle of the known world, and was built at the crossing of the East-West trade routes. It even boasted a seaport, via the Orontes River. These are all important attributes for the capital of Christianity, which is known for its mobility.

    It may be that many of the original autographs of Paul’s epistles were penned in Antioch. In the second century, a disciple by the name of Lucian founded a school of the Scriptures in Antioch.

    Lucian was noted for his mistrust of pagan philosophy. His school magnified the authority and divinity of Scripture and taught that the Bible was to be taken literally, not figuratively as the philosophers of Alexandria taught. So Antioch is not only the point of origin for the correct family of Bible manuscripts, but is also the source for the ideology that accepts the Bible as literally and perfectly God’s words.

    From Antioch we receive the pure line of manuscripts culminating in what is known as the “Received Text” or Textus Receptus.”

    Dear Joshua,

    You make some credible points about Origen, but you do not properly answer the question of Old Testament texts by involving an argument about New Testament texts. It is rather fallacious to try to answer one with the other. Origen ~ 150 A.D. ; Septuagint ~ 300 B.C.

    Also, your criticism of Alexandria, where Ptolemy ruled and where the Septuagint was compiled, takes on the character of a superstition rather than a principled argument. It is from Scripture that we learn that Jesus, Mary and Joseph fled to Egypt according to the instructions given by an angel of the Lord, in order to escape Herod’s wrath.

    If what you suggest is true, then you imply that this was a bad idea of God’s because of how pervasive and evil the culture of Egypt was. Talk about revision! Is all this necessary in defense of the Masoretic Text? Why don’t you give us a real lesson about how good and righteous the antichrist Jews who compiled the Masoretic Texts were, so that we can learn how to rely on their superior counsel in all matters religious?

  118. Stav April 8, 2011 @ 8:57 am

    Dear Joshua,

    There is no point debating this anymore. The proof is 1.000.000% absolutely conclusive.

    1) It is the Septuagint that is quoted in the New Testament WORD FOR WORD. Thus it is the Septuagint that is validated in the New Testament.

    2) It is the Masorah which lacks whole texts and includes heavily altered texts that make the proof that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah.

    3) The Christ-hating Jews, who compiled the Masorah, corrupted it ON PURPOSE to hide the fact that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah and HIDE THE FACT that Jesus Christ incarnated for ALL the nations. And why wouldn’t they? That’s their number ONE purpose in life!

    Would you trust a wolf to keep safe your sheep? Would you trust a psychopathic pyromaniac with a box of matches and some gasoline? Would you trust a pedophile with your own child?

    No? Then why do you trust Ano Domini Anti-Christ Jews to give you an Old Testament of THEIR making and manipulation? And it WAS manipulated and altered, the proof is virtually inexhaustible!!!

    What else do you want to see the truth? 1) above, should be enough for you, since all you trust is Scripture. If you don’t get it now, then you are clearly saying all you are saying simply to support your own misguided beliefs.

    There’s nothing to it, accept the truth, and you will feel much better for it! Why continue this futile attempt to prove the unprovable?

  119. Stav April 8, 2011 @ 9:25 am

    And Dear Joshua,

    To make things 100% absolutely clear, factually and practically in all possible ways and close the matter once and for all:

    Above in my previous post, I quoted the Greek text:

    A quote of Psalm 40, is used VERBATIM, in the New Testament Hebrews 10:6. The quote in Greek, matches EXACTLY the Septuagint (no need to know Greek to see that the words are matched exactly):

    As quoted in the New Testament:

    θυσίαν καὶ προσφορὰν οὐκ ἠθέλησας, σῶμα δὲ κατηρτίσω μοι· 6 ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ περὶ ἁμαρτίας οὐκ εὐδόκησας· 7 τότε εἶπον· ἰδοὺ ἥκω, ἐν κεφαλίδι βιβλίου γέγραπται περὶ ἐμοῦ, τοῦ ποιῆσαι, ὁ Θεός, τὸ θέλημά σου.

    As written in the Septuagint:

    θυσίαν καὶ προσφορὰν οὐκ ἠθέλησας, σῶμα δὲ κατηρτίσω μοι· ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ περὶ ἁμαρτίας οὐκ ἐζήτησας. 8 τότε εἶπον· ἰδοὺ ἥκω, ἐν κεφαλίδι βιβλίου γέγραπται περὶ ἐμοῦ· 9 τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ θέλημά σου, ὁ Θεός μου,

    Just look at the words, THEY ARE IDENTICAL.

    Now, look at your KJV and see the ERROR:

    Hebrews 10:5 KJV

    Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

    Psalms 40 KJV (Masorah)
    6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, 8 I delight to do thy will, O my God:

    THEY DON’T MATCH. IN THE GREEK THEY MATCH. See it now? No? read it again then. Count the words. Get it?

    Are you STILL going to claim that the KJV is an optimal translation? If yes, then WHY does the original MATCH the Septuagint, and in the KJV it DOES NOT? Are you STILL going to try to escape the absolute and as plain as can be facts above?

    Yes, Joshua, you in the English speaking West, HAVE INDEED been reading a sub-optimal text to say the least. The proof is just a few lines above this sentence. Period.

    There is nothing else to say, case closed, if you don’t do what you have to do now that you know, then you will reap the consequences.

  120. Joshua April 8, 2011 @ 10:19 am

    @ Stav

    We are talking about TRANSLATIONS in ENGLISH (or German, etc.) here, not about “originals”! Not everybody in the world reads Greek, you know.

    The King James Version is the best ENGLISH translation of the Bible and THAT I can PROVE!

  121. Ton Nuiten April 8, 2011 @ 11:21 am

    Is Gog On the Move?

    Many Christians believe there will be in the future an attack on mass scale against Israel by many nations under the leadership of a certain “Gog from Magog.”

    Many Christians believe too, that this “Gog” is no other than Russia. Many Bible teachers, as for example Hal Lindsey, wrote about it. They were assured that Russia (or the USSR as it then was called), was the only nation which was eligible for “Gog.”

    There was no other nation which was qualified for this role, as they thought it would be. But it is more than 21 years now, that Communism has disappeared. Before we going on, let’s ask the question: who are the allies of this mysterious “Gog?” When we will take our Bibles and look for Ezekiel 38, a chapter which speaks about “Gog”:

    “And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying: Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.” (verse 1) In verse 3-6, we read about some of the allies of Gog:

    “Persia” (or Iran as it now is called), “Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer and all his bands; the house of Thogarma of the North quarters, and all his bands; and many people with thee.”

    Well, who is this “Gog” who will in the end times attack Israel? And what has this to do with what is happening now in Libya (and in the nearby future with other African and Asiatic nations?)

    Did we remember, that former president of the U.S., George W. Bush brought a visit to Israel on January, 9, 2008? Well, during his arrival, he received a scroll, a “megillat” the “megillat-Bush.” In this scroll, Mr. Bush was addressed with these words:

    “In the Name of the Lord, Eternal God. To the honorable Mr. George W. Bush, President of the United States of America. Who comes seeking the presence of the Most High God, to Jerusalem, city of God, Divinely chosen site of the Holy Temple, eternal city of our land, “the joy of the entire earth” (Psalms 48:3), may it be rebuild and established speedily and in our days, Amen!

    Esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, THE CHIEF PRINCE OF MESHECH AND TUBAL (Ezekiel 38:1), leader of the West!” (capitals added)

    When we consider this, and we look at what is happen now in Libya and what will happen next in Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and in the future in other African nations, it is my conviction that the “Gog” in Ezekiel 38 and 39, is no other than America!

    When Libya and the aforementioned countries are vanquished, they will be the allies of Gog from Magog, who will with his numerous allies invade Israel. It is possible that this event will be the judgment of God on the Jewish nation because of the many sins which she until than has committed. But after that, it will be Gog and his allies which will be destroyed by fire from heaven.

    Apparently, when a remnant of Jews has called on the Name of the Lord Jesus when they will be in big trouble, they will be saved from total destruction, when the Lord Jesus will return. Because it is written:

    “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see Me henceforth, till ye shall say: Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.” (Matthew 23:38-39)

    Read Ezekiel 38 and 39 for yourself and after that, visit this site:

    Dear Joshua,

    It does not matter what you can prove. And it’s not a matter of language or translations either. You did not understand my post.

    Here is your Better Old Testament:

    http://www.ecmarsh.com/lxx/

    Combine that with the NT as found in the KJV, and you have a BETTER Bible that the Church has already proved to be so, hundreds and hundreds of years ago.

    There’s no need for you to prove anything else. If you deny this fact, then see for your self: Compare the quotes in the NT that point to the OT and see which one matches the best, EVEN in English. The one that matches the closest, is the one to go with.
    (Hint: The lxx)

    And if the OT as included in the KJV is proven not to be as good as it should be, then this means that there is a better Bible (Even in English) for you to read, does it not?

    Finished with this now, you have everything you need to find a better (English) Bible that even you can prove is better.

    Thank you Brother Nathaniel for vindicating the Book of Esther.

    Many well intentioned patriots like David Duke misunderstand this book and denigrate its place in the Biblical Cannon.

    It is very easy and popular today to knock this Book, so I think your determination not to go with this flow demonstrates very powerfully your integrity and courage, and it makes me even gladder that I was able to send $30 to you this month.

    I would like to send $120 to you next month, assuming my SS doesn’t get cut.

    Gary DeMar has a very sound teaching suggesting that the battle against the Hamanites in the Book of Esther was the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecied Gog and Magog in chapters 38-39.

    In other words, Esther fulfills Ezekiel and Gog and Magog already happened long ago!

    It’s also important to realize that the image of Gog and Magog in Revelation 20 is not the same as that in Ezekiel 38-39.

    A simple proof is that following Ezekiel’s vision the Jerusalem Temple is rebuilt, while following Revelation 20’s Gog and Magog, the Heavenly Jerusalem descends and it contains NO TEMPLE, since God is its light and Jesus its lamp.

    Ted Pike has responded to your challenge to him about the Book of Esther:

    http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/NatKapnerWatchmanOnWall.html

    I would advise you not to get distracted by this man and dragged into an unproductive theological food fight with him. Our enemies love it when internal dissension besets us all.

    But I will leave it to you to discern how best to deal with him, and I trust that God will impart to you His precious wisdom to help you be wise as a serpent but gentle as a dove. (Not like so many American Christians who are deadly as serpents and wise as birdbrains…)

    In Christ,

    PS - Walid Shoebat appeared on Sid Roth’s show claiming that Islam is the true anti Christ faith, that Protestants erred about the Catholic Church, that the schism between eastern and western Christianity is trivial compared to the threat of Islam and that Jesus Himself is targeting the Moslem world today.

    He seems to ignore the fact that the fourth beast in Daniel is Roman Europe and not Africa…

    I always find Dr. Roberts writings to be of great importance as well as very informative. He is correct on every account and unfortunately these things will come to pass.

    As long as the Zionists continue to corrupt our nation and its government, we will be in trouble. We will increasingly become poorer and resembling more of a third world nation. This is their objective.

    The entire Obomber administration is now made up of Zionist Jews. Every single one. They have only one reason for being there: to the benefit of Israhell and not America.

    This administration is no different than the previous one, maybe even worse as Obomber is becoming more and more dictatorial.

    I have suspected from the very moment the rebellion in Libya was not what it appeared to be. Now my suspicions have been confirmed; but what can I do about it?

    Try to inform my fellow citizens is like shouting into the wind. Most are too brainwashed to be able to think for themselves let alone to try to reason with them.

    They have become nothing more than automatons who accept without question any lie, deceit or propaganda they are fed. I really don’t know if they can be helped. They are just too brainwashed and most don’t care as long as they have NASCAR, American Idle and stupid brain-dead sitcoms (produced by Zionists) to watch.

    They will do so even up to the point where the mushroom clouds appear on the horizon.

    It’s too bad, we could have reached the stars but it seems that we have doomed ourselves through our own laziness greed and ignorance.
    It’s time to gather guns, ammo and food and prepare yourself for whatever comes.

    Sarkozy who sees himself as the new Bush and all his clique in the US, in the EUand Israel are waiting in the wings: dans les coulisses de la mort — madly and hopelessly hoping to take over the Libyan oil fields.

    I hope the Libyan people - some of whom think he is a saviour - will realise that he is there and involved in the slaughter of civilians with his Zionist killing machine, for what he and the Tribe can get out of a sad and deplorable situation.

    The North Africans and the people from the Middle East are one and the same. We will not allow these pests to take over our lands. They have done enough damage in other countries and have left a trail of desolation in Irak, people suffering from cancer and poverty while they reap the rewards of illegal and bloody wars, loot houses, empty museums of their artifacts, leave scores of women giving birth to still-born babies and children born with only one eye, one leg, one arm, deformed.

    These shameless murderers have no place in OUR WORLD. They must be brought up to justice by the whole world community and be made to pay for their crimes instead of making fun and a mockery of people’s lives while robbing them of their property, lying to their teeth, aggressing anyone anywhere and getting away with murder and genocides.

    We will not allow them to take over the oil reserves of any place. They should know by now that no-one is afraid of them or their weapons of mass destruction, of their nuclear bombs, their sonic sirens or their stupid alarms no matter how loud they are. We will not bow to these monsters nor allow them to take away our pride and dignity.

    We will stand up and expose all their crimes anytime, any day because we deserve better than to be conned repeatedly, mocked by Dhimmis and the likes whose lives we have saved, whose lives the Christians and the Muslims have saved many times over, to whom we have given the right to practice their religion and live in peace among us.

    We will not tolerate their arrogance and their warmongering against US who have protected them for centuries and allowed them to carry out their businesses without interference and in good faith. These people have betrayed US and have let us down big time.

    It is up to US, the international community to put this right and find a remedy to this international problem and to these psychos who are destroying our lives and abusing our human rights, their position and their power.

    We will never be their slaves nor their supporters as they are committing far too many crimes flaunting their blood-money, fortunes stolen from investors, taken without the approval of taxpayers, to corrupt government officials and all crimes of criminals and mercenaries whom they use as hitmen/hitwomen and who are paid to provoke and attack us daily.

  131. DJAMILA April 25, 2011 @ 2:21 am

    Many people are afraid of Jews.

    When they see injustice at work, at home, in their area, many refrain from reporting some crimes because they do not trust their police or killing machine who torture citizens in front of them, because they fear retaliation, i.e. losing their job or being tortured or even murdered if they witness and try to combat crimes.

    Many people who have written some truths about Jews have been assassinated, have lost their jobs, have committed suicide, are in hiding, are persecuted, their families and friends are and have been persecuted by this new inquisition who terrorise the entire world with wars, tortures, beatings, unfairness, injustices, attacks, aggressions, lies, prosecution each time we open our mouth.

    Their hordes start cacophonies of sirens whenever we turn on the computer, spy on us assault us openly in the street and commit many many other crimes.

    For a decade we have been bombarded with images of war, destruction, bombardments of infrastructures, of villages, attacks against whole wedding parties, guests, bride and bridegrooms for the sheer pleasure of the Zionist warmongers and their supporters and allies.

    In the name of what? Their biased media helps to instil fear and provoke reactions. The warmongers know full well that when they will kill 11 members of the same family, there is a good chance of retaliation from the last 12th surviving member.

    Their provocation could pay off and this will justify their counter-attacks and claim victory over what they themselves are: the real terrorists.

    Here in the UK and in France, their hordes keep provoking and harassing fully French citizens from North African background, and when they riot because they have had enough, they call them thugs amongst other names like racailles — a swear word used by the Zionist anti-muslim Sarkozy whose parents were Jewish immigrants from Hungary.

    Then he will go to the Arab world smiling and looking for juicy contracts worth billions of dollars as well as expecting the red carpet. Arab leaders must understand there is no need to butter up the likes of this president as they have no respect for us.

    They enjoy large commissions worth billions of dollars, huge pay packets, as all the perks which come from working in our countries and give nothing in return but misery for our immigrant population.

    Many are fully fledged citizens whose parents and ancestors have built France with their hard labour, sweat and their own hands, have built their roads in their offshore colonies like the Reunion, Martique, in Noumea and Guadeloupe have built schools, roads, houses, churches, entire estates, working from dawn till dusk chained and badly nourished, badly housed and badly treated; i.e., often beaten up when they could not stand up anymore.

    France has also to remember that the revenues from our fertile land have helped her become a superpower.

    Despite this, the French government keeps singing the praises of colonization and refuses to say sorry for multiple genocides committed through 132 years of hell:

    Razzias, gassing entire tribes in hermetically closed caves, in silos burning people alive, multiple uses of tortures like burning prisoners with cigarettes and stabbing patients in hospitals, poisoning babies, water boarding and electrocutions with water and electricity used on members of my family during the Algerian war of independence, shooting, shooting prisoners dead so they won’t have to feed them or look after them.

    The mass murders, mass graves, the theft of land and private property and now the disgusting and relentless attacks by the Sarkozy police and his CRS mostly from his own faith and some Zionists, neo-nazis, provocations through illegal searches of young people, the shooting of innocents and so on.

    Instead of tackling these problems of racism, Sarkozy the Zionist is attacking the veil. Does the veil bark? Does it bite, shoot people, torture anyone, it is a weapon directed at anyone, white phosphorous bombs, a nuclear bomb, an atomic bomb a threat to anyone?

    So women have chosen to chose their faces for religious reasons. What is his problem, while racism is rampant in the country which do not want to accept her past crimes, change its attitude towards those who have made her what she is and say at least sorry.
