|The trail of the Serpent
began in the garden of Eden, when Lucifer incarnate the
beast and persuaded Eve to accept carnal reasoning
against the revealed Word of God. Before God changed his
form and placed him upon his belly, the Serpent was a
man-like creature. He could conduct intelligent
conversation, and in appearance he looked human, a big
handsome giant of a fellow. But he didn't have a soul and
was pure animal. Nonetheless, his seed could and did mix
with the human race. His hybrid offspring are with us
today. They have a soul, but they are not on the Book of
Life, and not redeemable.
Eve knew that on this occasion she wasn't speaking with the beast, but with Lucifer in the beast. He didn't openly deny God's Word; rather, he enticed Eve to reason against it. We are not to add to or take from the revealed Word of God, and if there's something we do not understand we must not presume to interpret It to match our ideas.
God's spoken Word is the original seed. It is Spirit, and Life. When we add to or take from It, we make death. "Reasoning" against the revealed Word of God is called spiritual Serpent's seed. Once Eve had accepted the seed of Satan's lie against God's Original Word into the womb of her mind, she yielded to adultery with the beast, receiving the Serpent's physical seed into the womb of her body. The fruit of that seed was the bastard Cain.
So there is spiritual Serpent's seed, and there is natural Serpent seed. God is building His Kingdom, His Church, by understanding or faith in His revealed Word. Through all the Ages, the saints were written epistles of God's Word spoken for their day. Their lives were the manifestation of what His Word foretold He would do in their day.
Therefore when we accept creeds and private interpretation against the revealed Word of God, it's the "hiss of the Serpent" and death to our soul today, as surely as it was death in the garden of Eden. God is His Own Interpreter. He knows precisely what His Word means and He doesn't need man's help or interpretation to make It work.
God interprets His Word by bringing It pass. For instance, He said through Isaiah that "a virgin shall conceive". It took a long time, but in the right season a virgin received His spoken Word from the Angel Gabriel, and she did conceive. Otherwise He sends a prophet and vindicates that prophet. In our day, He sent William Branham who was more abundantly vindicated in this wicked and adulterous generation than any prophet of earlier dispensations. This is now recorded history you may confirm for your own satisfaction.
One Word off the Bible is the hiss of the Serpent, and the kingdom of Satan, for "strait is the gate (man shall live by every Word, not add to or take therefrom), and narrow is the way that leads to eternal Life (in other words the entrance is by a deep revelation). And but few . . . "
(How many was that?) ". . . Few there be that find It."
So forget about your multinational multi-million-member denominations -- they are not in the economy of God. They're "the broad way that leads to destruction." They represent the hiss of the Serpent. So does my preaching if I'm teaching error. And so does your understanding if you fail to prove it by God's unchanging Word and receive error I did not teach. Let's establish this by the Words of Jesus Christ.
John 8:43-47, "Why don't you understand Me? It's because you can't receive My Message.
You are of your father the Devil, and seek to gratify the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks naturally: for he is a liar, and the father of lies. Yet when I tell the truth, you don't believe Me.
Who can accuse Me of unbelief in God's revealed Word? Then since you can't convict Me of sin, why don't you believe Me? He that is of God hears His Words: therefore the reason you're not able to hear them is because you're not of God."
From the garden of Eden we have spiritual Serpent's seed or the seed of discrepancy, which can be so close to the revealed Word of God it would almost deceive the very elected if it were possible. But the elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God because by God's foreknowledge they're predestinated to become the manifested Word for their Age. Amen! His sheep receive His Word and are born-again. Although the "saved" are among the rest, they are not His sheep and can never be born-again.
We can trace the trail of the spiritual Serpent's seed very easily by comparing his thoughts expressed as doctrine and manifested in deeds throughout history from Eden. And we can identify those who were his followers by comparing their lives with the Word of God revealed for their days. The seed or Word of God is understanding or Light. But the seed of the Serpent is Darkness. How can two walk together unless they're agreed on the revealed Word of God? There can be no fellowship between children of Light and the children of Darkness. They are at enmity with one another (II Corinthians 6:14).
The Fall in the garden of Eden reproduced the physical seed of the Serpent in Cain, and the seed of Adam in Abel and Seth. Cain was a hybrid of the spoken Word Serpent, and Eve, who was a by-product taken from the side of Adam, who was the spoken Word. Cain is not on the Book of Life. Nor are his descendants today. From the very beginning, the Bible speaks of two lineages. And God placed enmity between them. Enmity is hatred.
Let's seal that with the Word of God. I John 3:10-12, "We can tell the child of God from the children of Satan: the unrighteous are (spiritual Serpent's seed and) not of God; and he who doesn't love his brother is not of God, (because he displays the enmity God set between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam). The Message from the beginning was that we should love one another.
Not like Cain, who was begotten of that wicked one, (not Adam, but the Serpent that was cursed of God), and slew his brother because his own works were evil, and his brother's were righteous." (This shows us that physical Serpent's seed are also spiritual Serpent's seed, because like Cain they're unable to apprehend the faith).
Cain's race is not on the Book of Life. It came through the Flood in the person of Noah's wife, Naamah, who was not the mother of his three sons. It was reproduced by her incest with Ham. There is absolutely no sense in preaching to the physical Serpent's seed as they are not among God's creatures or creation. They may be nice folk and good citizens -- church-goers; even preachers -- pay their tithes and sing in the choir, but they will never be in the Kingdom of God and they have no Kinsman Redeemer.
God destroyed the world by Flood because of miscegenation between the descendants of Adam and of the lineage of Cain (Genesis 6:4). The offspring of such relationships is always physical Serpent's seed, unable to breed itself onto the Book of Life (which is the genealogy of Adam). Jesus prophesied that this great sin would repeat in the days of Christ's "parousia", and we see it all around us today (Matthew 24:37). That was Satan's evil intent behind the changes to immigrations laws in countries such as the United States and Australia. It's one of the purposes of the United Nations, its ugodly "Declaration of Human Rights," and the many wars and subsequent refugee programs it sponsors.
Genesis 10 identifies the races, cultures and civilizations making up the physical Serpent's seed on this side of the Flood and these may be identified among the modern nations. We'll leave their identification as a revelation between you and God,and follow the trail of the Serpent through the Bible to one group who identify themselves as Esau/Edom whilst pretending to be Jacob/Israel.
Something of which we must be conscious throughout this lesson is that Satan cannot create; he's an impersonator and a fraud. But his impersonations are so close as would almost deceive God's elected. This explains why the Bible is full of twins, only one of which is of God. It also explains why God is a Separater, calling His own out of the world into His Word.
Brother Branham said, "Every revival, always produces twins -- it's true. When there was a birth from Isaac and Rebekah, it produced twins. When the world was created, it produced twins -- two trees. And when Cain and Abel were born, it produced twins. When Ishmael and Isaac was born, it produced two. And when Esau and Jacob was born, it produced two. One of them, natural (one of them of the earth); the other one Supernatural. And one looked at the natural, intellectual; the other one walked by the Spirit. It's always been that way. When the Lutheran church came forth . . . in every revival that's ever been borned in the world produces twins. Every revival has twins. They have a bunch in there that's carnal believers and a bunch of spiritual believers. Every revival produces an Esau and a Jacob."
In the garden of Eden, Eve's first-born, Cain, was of the Devil by the Serpent, whilst his step-brother, Abel, was of God by Adam. Noah had three sons in the righteous line but Ham was evil. His incest with his father's wife reproduced the Serpent seed on this side of the Flood.
Ham's sons in the righteous line founded Babel, the original name for Babylon. It means "confusion," and was literally started by Cush, the son of Ham, but was brought to a kingdom of power and grandeur under his son, Nimrod, the mighty hunter. Nimrod, according to the Genesis eleven account and also according to profane history, set out to accomplish three things. He wanted to build a strong nation, which he did. He wanted to propagate his own religion, which he did. He wanted to make a name for himself, which he also accomplished. Nimrod's accomplishments were so monumental that the kingdom of Babylon was called the head of gold amongst all world governments. That his religion gained prominence is proven by the fact that Scripture identifies it with Satan completely in Isaiah 14 and Revelation Chapters 17-18. And by history we can prove that it overran the entire world and is the basis for every system of idolatry, and the theme of mythology. Although the names of the gods differ according to the language of the people it is the same Trinity. That he made a name for himself and his followers goes without saying, for as long as this present age goes on, and until Jesus reveals Himself to the 144,000 elect Israelites, Nimrod will be worshipped and honored as "God the Son", but in the church, not the temple where he was originally adored (II Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 13:4; compare The Seven Church Ages 182:1).
Aptly, it was in his letter to the Romans that Paul wrote, "When they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, until they became vain in their imaginations, and through darkness of heart accepted a corrupted religion to the extent that they worshipped creatures and not the Creator." (The first church of Rome had became pagan shortly after AD39 when Claudius banished the Jews. Descendants of the apostates were among the founders of the Roman Catholic false church which was established by Constantine in AD325. The doctrine of the Roman Catholic church was never Christian).
Remember, Satan was a creature of God (Son of the Morning). It is Satan who is vicariously worshipped. And during the tribulation, "ALL that dwell upon the earth whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life shall worship Satan" (incarnate in the Pope of Rome as once he incarnate the beast in Eden, and Judas Iscariot in Gethsemane -- Revelation 13:8).
Thus where once Truth was disseminated amongst men, and all held to that one Truth, there later came a day when a vast group turned from God and spread a diabolical form of worship around the world. History bears out that those of the tribe of Shem, that stood with the unchanging Truth, were in solid opposition to those of Ham who turned away from Truth to the devil's lie. You see there were two religions and two only, and the evil one became world wide.
The polytheistic religion of the enemy began with the Trinitarian doctrine. It was way back there in antiquity that the "one God in three persons" idea came into existence. How strange that modern theologians have not spotted this; but evidently just as duped by Satan as their forebears, they still believe in three persons in the Godhead. Let us be shown just one place in Scripture where there is any authority for that doctrine.
While the descendants of Ham went on their way in Satanic worship which involved a basic concept of three gods, there's not one trace of the descendants of Shem believing such a thing, or having any ceremonial worship that involved even a type of it. In Genesis 18, Abraham, the descendant of Shem, saw only ONE God with two angels. And as Israel believed: "Hear, O Israel, the Lord thy God is ONE God", would it not seem strange if there were three persons in the Godhead?
Because of Abraham's faith or clear understanding of His Word, God made a Covenant with Abraham and his seed forever. In the natural, the promised seed was Isaac, yet Satan impersonates Isaac in the figure of Ishmael among the Moslems to this day. Good and Evil are so often represented through Scripture in pairs: brothers or twins. As God separated Abraham from Babylon, He separated Isaac from his step-brother. In the Spiritual, Abraham's promised Seed was Christ. Those born-again through faith in Jesus are joint heirs with Him.
Isaac had two sons in the righteous line: one was evil and married into the Serpent seed lineage. So did Judah, from whom as regards inheritance, came our Lord -- God intervened through Judah's affair with Tamar, to preserve the holy seed.
Judas Isacriot who betrayed our Lord, was Jesus' brother in the Church; so respected by the disciples he was their treasurer. It's always "so close it would almost deceive the very elected".
Babylon became the center of Satanic worship. Monotheism turned to polytheism in Babylon. The devil's lie and mysteries rose against the Truth of God and the mysteries of God in that city. But when Babylon fell to the Medo-Persians, its priest-king, Attalus fled to Pergamos with his priests and sacred mysteries. There he set up his kingdom which flourished over the years nurtured by the god of this world. After a succession of priest-kings, Attalus III, died without an heir and willed the kingdom to Rome. Julius Caesar then took both the kingdom physical and spiritual for he became Pontiff Maximus of the Babylonish religion in 63BC and was thereby priest-king. This title passed to the following emperors until the time of Gratian who in AD375 refused to wear the robe and assume the title, determining first and foremost to be an orthodox Christian.
Through the influence of the monks of Mount Carmel, a college of Babylonian religion originally founded by the priests of Jezebel, Damasus, bishop of Rome, took the title in AD378. So the head of the Babylonian order became ruler of the Roman church. Thus Satan united Rome and Babylon in one religious system as the Babylonian rites were introduced. Thereafter God no longer refers to Pergamos as "Satan's seat," nor does He say that is where Satan dwells. The throne room is now in MYSTERY Babylon, in a city on seven hills. Its head is antichrist for he has usurped the position of Christ Who alone can forgive sins. Yes, Pontiff Maximus is with us today.
The development of "overseas" or "Hellenistic" Christianity was concurrent and parallel to the development of Rabbinic Judaism. In many respects it is its mirror image, for Rome has impersonated the Israelitish high priest, introduced holy water for the waters of separation, reintroduced the Passover as the pagen feast of "Easter," and established the Babylonian mysteries in place of God's Word as the Jews have replaced the Law and the prophets with the Cabala and Talmud. Both were not only willing to live with Roman power -- they owed their continued existence to its sponsorship, as evident in their persecution of the true Church.
The power and brutality of Rome was operating in both to drive out and to declare heretical the Christianity of the apostolic saints. That faith has been restored by God in these last days through His prophet, the late William Branham. In Judaism, what was left was a legalistic shadow of former glories bereft of apocalyptic and Messianic tendencies. In Christianity, a largely Hellenized, other-worldly mystery cult, the real religious legacy of 300 years of Roman religious genius and assimilation.
Organized Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism are two sides of the same coin. They developed in conjunction with each other and both followed a policy of accommodation towards Rome, which no doubt is why both survived. Both are spiritual Serpent's seed. The main difference is that one is pro-Law, while the other is against it.
The Babylonian Talmud, completed in about AD500, exalts Babylon as the "centre of religion and learning" (Kethuboth 111a, Exch. 146). Babylon was the "Vatican" of world Talmudism.
The Pharisees recognized the Law of Moses; they also claimed there was a great body of oral tradition of at least equal authority with the written Law, and many claimed that the Tradition was of greater authority. By their tradition, they undertook to explain and elaborate the Law. This was the "Tradition of the Elders", to which the name of Talmud was later given. It had its beginning in Babylon, during the Captivity of Judah, where it developed in the form of commentaries by various rabbis, undertaking to expound the Law. This was the foundation of Rabbinic Judaism, or Pharisaism.
Judaism was very different from the religion of Israel. The late Rabbi Stephen Wise, who was the Chief Rabbi of the United States, expressed this conclusively, saying: "The return from Babylon, and the adoption of the Babylonian Talmud, marks the end of Hebrewism, and the beginning of Judaism." The Jewish Encyclopedia tells us that the Talmud is "the product of the Palestinian and Babylonian schools" and is generally referred to as "the Babylonian Talmud".
Jewish and Christian scholars agree it was Jesus Christ's flagrant rejection of this "Tradition of the Elders" and His open confrontation with the powerful Pharisees that created the climate that led to His death. Jesus declared that these "traditions" had blinded the eyes of the people to a true understanding of the Law, and the prophecies which related to His Coming as Messiah.
The religion of both Judaism and Roman Catholicism is actually the Babylonian mysteries posing as the Word of God. As we have already seen in our previous studies and as the Jews themselves admit, the vast majority of their people are naturally Esau/Edom. Catholicism is spiritually Esau/Edom, having rejected the birthright of Christ and although God gave Rome "space (of almost a thousand years) to repent of her (spiritual) fornication; (even sending Martin Luther to reform her ways, but ) she repented not" (Revelation 2:21).
In Revelation 18:4, there are two Babylons. One is Hollywood, the propaganda capital of the International Jews whence they brainwash and pollute the minds of the whole world with their filth. Los Angeles and 1500x3-400 miles of California, America's most populous state, will sink their Babylon beneath the Pacific Ocean at the close of the Gentile dispensation which is the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The second Babylon is Vatican Rome, which will be destroyed by atomic bombs some time after she breaks her covenant with the International Jews (in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week).
Please open your Bibles at Numbers 24:21-24.
Earlier in this series, we studied the prophesies of Balaam. "When Balaam looked upon the Canaanites, he said, 'Strong is your abode, your nest is in the rocks. (Because he foresaw how they would join with Israel in the mountainous country of Napthali). Nevertheless you'll be wasted until Assyria finally takes you away captive'."
And he took up his parable, and said, 'Alas, who shall live when God does this and establishes Assyria'!" (He was prophesying 700 years into the future to the time when Tiglath-Pilesar would carry away both the Canaanites and Israel -- II Kings 15:29).
"And Greek and Roman ships shall come from the coast of Cyprus, and oppress both Assyria and all of the Hebrew people, including Israel: then they too must be destroyed."
Balaam saw the new threat from the Western people of Alexander and Rome. The overthrow of Assyria, and finally Judah, brings Babylon onto the scene and the "times of the Gentiles" which encompass the empires of Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.
We have traced that pagan spirit from Babylon through to Imperial Rome into Papal Rome. We've seen how both Judaism and Catholicism are related, or if you like, brothers. They are each impersonating the Word of God, are enmity with one another, and vying for world dominion. They are also at enmity with the real Jacob/Israel.
Rome hates natural Israel and wants to establish her headquarters in Jerusalem. She also hates Spiritual Israel, the true Church of God, who stand upon His unchanging Word. The Jews who are Esau/Edom hate the natural descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and seek their blood and the birthright. They established the present State of Israel on the blood of Semitic Israelites and Semitic Palestinians shot by the Stern and Irgun gangs (Blood in Zion, Saul Zadaka). They also hate Spiritual Israel, the true Church. Together with Rome they will martyr the 144,000 elect Israelites, and seek the blood of Christ's Church, but She'll have been translated before one hair of her head could suffer harm, and they will martyr the foolish virgin.
There were only four Gentile world kingdoms and Papal Rome reigns to the consummation. The Jews rejected Jesus Christ, the revealed Word of God, so all of Israel are spiritual Serpent's seed. Those who were not came into the Church. God only deals with Israel as a nation and in her own land. And as He won't deal with Israel until the Gentile dispensation is fulfilled (Romans 11:25-27), we'll follow the trail of the spiritual Serpent seed through the worldly church -- in particular, Rome, the mother of harlots and abominations.
Now much of our sermon tonight will be a history lesson, for those who control the past can also control the future. A self-appointed elite or self-chosen people present a selective gloss or outright lies and call it "history". Truth that would expose the deadly nature of Cain in Esau/Edom through the centuries, murdering Jacob/Israel for a birth-right that can never be his, is buried. Satan and his children hate the truth of Genesis and Revelation which declare their beginning and their end.
In AD311, Constantine the Great legalized Christianity and stopped the persecutions. He brought it into the government so it could be controlled or would work in close co-operation. The following year he claimed to see a sign of the cross in the sky and in AD321 designated Sunday a general holiday. In AD325 as president of the First Nicea Council he declared the FALSE doctrine of the Trinity, the doctrine of Christendom, organized the Roman Catholic church, and the Apostle's Creed was written to enshrine its falsehood. By AD330 Constantine ceased issuing coins with the image of the Sun-god with whom he was identified.
Forty-six years later the Germanic tribes crossed the Danube into the Empire, led by the Visigoths. In AD476 at Ravenna, Odovacar, the Herulian, deposed Romulus Augustulus, the last Emperor in the West, marking the traditional end of the Roman Empire. Gradually the Empire faded away -- it did not have a massive fall.
The First Reich was that founded in AD 800 by Karl der Grosse, known to the West as Charlemagne. Charlemagne's crowning in AD800 began the rise of the Carolingians (AD800-924) which is regarded by historians as a revival of the Roman Empire. He was crowned by the Pope while kneeling in prayer before the altar of St. Peter, setting a precedent for the papal claim to the right to select, crown, and even depose emperors that was asserted, at least in theory, for nearly 700 years.
Charlemange's rule was followed by the later German Emperors. The Holy Roman Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, and so-on, were all dominated by German peoples. So you can see that historically, despite the hatred, there has also been an alliance of sorts between Rome and the Sephardim of the Western division of Empire against the Ashkenazim of the Eastern Arm. This association did not commence with World War II which was the predetermined outcome of controlled conflict between Marxist Russia, the Ashkenazim puppet state, and Nazi Germany, the Sephardim puppet that resulted in the deaths of millions of Christians and non-Jews, the weakening of the morals and massive transfer of Gentile wealth -- for their bankers supported both sides in the conflict and International Law guarantees repayment, or at least fiscal servitude -- and the establishment of their "Jewnited" Nations, a giant step closer to the creation of their long term plan for totalitarian one world government. Rome is also working towards one world government, and with support from the Sephardim and the Black Nobility of the Ashkenazim, she will succeed in restoring the Empire.
The Crusader's occupation and division of the Eastern Roman Empire and Constantinople in the 12th and 13th centuries, effectively linked East and West, and the Imperial crown was awarded to Baldwin of Flanders. The Holy Roman Empire generally occupied the West, while the Hapsburg Dynastic lands were mainly outside the Empire, in the East. The Hapsburgs ruled both halves from AD1273-1806. Charles V was their most prominent ruler.
The Turks brought the Eastern Empire to a close in 1403 when they destroyed Constantinople. Some aspects of the Eastern Empire were transferred to Imperial Russia under Ivan III (the Great) who was regarded as the first national sovereign of Russia. His marriage to Zoe (Sophia), niece of the last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI (Palaeogus) in 1472, was arranged by the Pope in the hope of bringing the Russians into the Roman Church. "Czar" or "Tsar", the title of the monarch of Russia, is a form of Caesar.
When the German Emperor's powers were being dismantled, the Popes accumulated the titles, ranks, offices and duties of the Emperors and Empire, as earlier they had taken the title and powers of the Babylonian high priest, Pontifex Maximus. The church Curia used the structure and procedures of the Imperial chancery; the Emperor's vestments were usurped by the popes, and so forth.
Halley writes, "The spirit of Imperial Rome passed into the church . . . The Popes of Rome were the heirs and successors of the Caesar of Rome. The Vatican is where the Palace of the Caesars was" (Halley's Bible Handbook, p. 731).
During the reign of Pope Leo I, the Roman church set up an ecclesiastical state which, in its constitution and administrative system, was shaping itself on the Imperial model. "Its system of ecclesiastical organization and a principle of social authority distinguished it from all the other religious bodies of the age" (Christopher Dawson, The Making of Europe).
Tensions between the German leaders and the Popes have continued ever since. Tensions between the pagan Roman spirit of Emperor worship or the divine kings who reign as incarnations of the gods, and the "Holy" Roman Catholic element will resurface close to the end as revealed in Revelation 17:16-18; 18:4-20, and Isaiah 47:1-15.
The woman who sits aloft the city of seven hills and is the mother of the Protestant harlot churches (Revelation 17:5), has modeled herself upon the political structures of the Roman Empire which experienced a mixing of religions from the second to the fourth century AD, to produce what it is: the Babylonian Mystery Religion of so-called "Christianity". That Church has adopted so much of the Babylonian and Hellenistic mysteries that Scripture calls her "Mystery Babylon."
This won't be a future mixing of Christianity and Eastern religions. It's been with us for almost 2,000 years! When a new world order seems possible, a new Pope will come out of the UN in New York and the monarchies of Europe will assume renewed overt influence.
Despite any amount of plotting and planning by the leftist faction within the Jesuits or others, the Babylonian Mystery Religion won't, suddenly overnight, become an Eastern religion. Remember the motto of the Catholic Church: Semper Eadem (always the same) -- there's no way the globalist left will triumph in the Catholic Church -- it may seem that way -- but historically and prophetically the traditionalist conservatives will win out in the end. The same old historic system, the enemy of Jacob/Israel, will triumph over the left.
Remember Daniel chapter two? Rome rules to the consummation. When all the kingdoms of the world have fought for dominion and fallen, Israel will remain and have an everlasting dominion (Daniel 2).
It should also be realized that the Catholic Church have their own variant for a new world order -- a Catholic order. Writing on "Who Leads the New World Order?" in Liberty magazine, Clifford Goldstein astutely notes: "The pope, obviously, has a spiritual vision for the new world order. Unlike other leaders fuzzily conjecturing about the new world order, John Paul has a Christian vision. The pope believes that neither oppressive Marxism, with its godless ideology, nor materialistic capitalism, with its financial inequities, is an acceptable system . . . the pope envisions a new world order centered and dependent upon Christ" (Goldstein, 1992 p:18)
The Holy Roman Empire was an attempt to revive the Western Roman Empire dissolved in 1806, at the behest of Napoleon. And Germany remained in a state of dissolution until the advent of the Second Reich, of the Hohenzollerns, in 1871. "Kaiser" is a form of "Caesar" -- head of the ancient Roman or Holy Roman Empire ruled by the Hapsburgs in the East from 1804-1918 (Austria), and Germany in the West from 1871-1918.
The Second Reich was destroyed in 1918 and the Weimar Republic substituted for it, by the various foreign victors. More recently, the concept of the Third Reich (1934-45) held by Adolf Hitler asserted the Empire's continuity with the First Reich (800-1806), and the Second Reich (1871-1918). When the Third Reich was destroyed in 1945, new political institutions were once more imposed by victorious foreigners.
If you are able stand back and view the broad panorama of modern history, you will see that the political structure of the Roman Empire in its many forms has figured decisively in the affairs of central Europe. And leaving aside natural Israel, we can discern the spiritual conflict between Esau/Edom in the form of the Papal Roman Empire of Catholicism, and Jacob/Israel of Christianity. (Here again you will see natural Esau/Edom as a fifth column in a corrupt organized impersonation of Protestantism fighting Rome as in Ireland at the present day).
The Holy Roman Empire disappears from view during the years of the rise of Britain and America, which prosper through God's grace and Bible faith. But there was an enemy within, in the form of Esau/Edom, the self-styled Jews.
After the demise of Khazaria they established themselves in Venice and Genoa. They married from the Venetian and Genoese oligarchies into the Royal houses of Europe in the early part of the twelfth century. Then they set up in Amsterdam and captured the British Throne through the Khazar Jew, William of Orange. They infiltrated the Protestant Churches, set up the Jesuit Order against Rome and the Protestants, organized Free Masonry, and by introducing the Babylonian fractional reserve banking system (or usury), became so powerful they are now a parallel government in most countries.
The Most Serene Republic of Venice, ruled by an oligarch of Khazar Jews, sought to dominate the world following the collapse of the Roman Empire. It bequeathed to us slavery, financial usury, and political "divide and conquer" strategems such as the controlled two-party dialectic that makes a charade of our pseudo-democratic system of government today.
You thought this was the work of Englishmen, didn't you? You were Wrong! It was the work of Esau/Edom hiding behind the British Flag, in the form of the old East India Company and similar patents. Englishmen paid the bills and lay down their lives, but Esau/Edom organized the wicked rape and pillage, and they made the profits. They still make the profits. Whom do you think benefits when the US bullies Iraq or some other country? Certainly not US electors. America was silent when it was reported to the UN and on NBC in 1948, that the Zionists had bacteriological laboratories in Palestine, and that Jews had confessed to poisoning the Gaza water supply with typhoid and dysentery germs. Yet the world is "outraged" when Iraq is found to have similar weaponry purchased from the United States. What about China, Britain, Israel, Russia, France, or the US itself? The beneficiaries are Esau/Edom from the City of London whose minions staff the US Administration, whose masters manufactured and sold the biological agents and other "weapons of mass destruction" to Saddam's Iraq.
Behind the scenes of the warfare and national rivalries witnessed in the pages of history is the hatred between the Edomite Jews and Rome who have fought for dominion, like Esau and Jacob, since the days of the Caesars. Modern European history has little to do with the British, Italians, French, Germans, or Russians, etc., Rather is it the out-working of the Learned Elders of Zion, seeking world dominion for which they will pay any price.
Eventually establishing themselves in the City of London, (which is a private Corporation, not unlike Vatican City State in Italy), they have manipulated empires much as the popes of Rome, but rather more covertly. They were the "hidden hand" behind all major wars and revolutions, manipulating the nations, with a holocaust of hundreds of millions of Christians. Their leaders boast of this in their books. According to Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, "One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail" (February 27, 1994). Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, head of the Kever Yossev Yeshiva (school of Talmud) in Nablus has stated, "The blood of the Jewish people is loved by the Lord; it is therefore redder and their life is preferable." According to a pamphlet compiled by Rabbi Ginsburg entitled, Five General Religious Duties Which Lie Behind the Act of the Saintly, Late Rabbi Baruch Goldstein, May his Blood be Avenged, "the killing by a Jew of a non-Jew, i.e. a Palestinian, is considered essentially a good deed, and Jews should therefore have no compunction about it." History is the unfolding of long term plans by the hidden hand of powerful men behind the scenes, who know not God (Babylonian Talmud; Cecil Roth, House of Nasi; History of the Jews of Italy, 1946, Jewish Publication Society of America; Disraeli's writings; Rodkinson (M. Levi Frumpkin), "History of the Talmud" in his translation of the Babylonian Talmud).
You'll note the Old Empire was the enemy of Britain and America during World Wars I and II. Britain is Esau/Edom's base. Britain's Empire is their Empire. The former Colonies, including Australia and America were always, and continue to be Jewish colonies. Once the British taxpayer provided the soldiers and the Navy to enforce their will. Today it is their United Nations and a military force made-up from several nations, paid for by the taxpayers of those nations, to enforce the policies of this elite.
To imagine that Britain, America, Japan, Australia or any nation in the developed world is a democratic and independent sovereignty is foolishness. We have the sham democracy of a two party system controlled by the City of London.
However, the International Jews are mistaken in thinking that they will be able to impose a NWO through America and Britain. The day will come when the Germans and their European allies will reign supreme once more. America and Britain will not be able to stop the Fourth Reich (Revelation 17:12; 13:4-10). The Black Nobility of Europe are waiting in the wings to save Europe from liberalism and globalism, believing that their lessons have been learned and that they will be benevolent rulers in the future House of Europe. It will be an empire that will bring stability and prosperity to the world (Daniel 8:25), which, after the coming depression and earthquake, will be without US leadership.
The United States is portrayed in Scripture as the lamb-like beast that rises out of the land and it will be subservient to the Beast that arose from the sea (Revelation 13:11-13; 17:3). The sea used in the prophecy is the Mediterranean, and the peoples of the Bible are from the countries that surround this sea. Those who are not of the Bible are predominantly to the East of these nations. The leadership will center around the countries of Europe and the Middle-East.
The US is bankrupt NOW. In 1962 Brother Branham said, "The present government is spending . . . tax money that they'll be collecting forty years from now." America's in debt to the tune of about five trillion dollars now. After the earthquake sinks California, her economy and her dollar will be so low, you'll need a submarine to find it.
The coming ruler of Europe will be a Devil-incarnate Pope, backed by ten kings we call the Black Nobility (Revelation 17:13). As such he will be Emperor. The Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire were chosen by electors comprising royalty, aristocracy and the upper echelon of the clergy. After three and a half years of world peace and prosperity driven by a successful European economy dominating a world trading structure, will come three and a half years of dictatorship and brutal war.
Were time to continue, we would find neither Europe nor America is prepared for the global competition of the next century. For America, the progressive shift of wealth and power to Asia would be humiliating and destabilizing, because they are controlled by Pharisees of the City of London who cannot be sure to control the Chinese and Muslims without military might.
Some of these non-Christian people are of their own kind, and they are wise to them as Dr. Mahatier of Malaysia and the Chinese have demonstrated. They are not so ruthless in business but unlike the once Christian nations of the West who once expelled Esau/Edom, they are prepared to say "no".
Bible believers know that "time" will not continue. One day very soon these people whose economies are presently being raped by the IMF and World Bank in order to recoup the losses of the International Bankers and to transfer their assets from paper to real wealth, will turn the tables and manifest that they are the "Kings of the East" (Revelation 16:12).
The European Union is more and more taking a shape that parallels the Holy Roman Empire in the West and the lands of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire in the East, thus reconstituting the old Roman Empire. Inevitably, the forces that will dominate this new European Order will encompass Germany working closely together with France, Poland and Italy on the one hand, and the Roman Catholic Church in co-operation with the Eastern Orthodox Church in Europe, and a secondary pact with America and the Protestants, and the self-styled Jews.
Previous attempts at European unity -- the Hanseatic league, Holy Roman Empire and Napoleon's attempts, were anti-British, and anti-Jewish bankers (which is of course much the same thing). Attempts at European unity were a defense against Esau/Edom destroying the political systems, culture, liberty, youth, energy and religious faith of Christendom, pitting brother against brother, in a war of attrition -- fixing the fight, financing both sides from behind the scenes, and pretending to be innocent of the affairs. "Without their ability to create fiat money, most modern wars would not have occurred" (G. Edward Griffin, The Creature from Jekyl Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve).
Now listen to this: In 1934 Prince Lowenstein wrote, "For the New Germany for which we are fighting is founded on its mission of universal service . . . the beginning of the Reich . . . dates from the time when the Roman Empire united all the barbarous tribes . . . Hence the foundations are Roman and will remain so until the end of time . . . a unified worldwide Reich . . . those who fail to understand the real history of the Roman symbol are constantly misunderstanding its significance . . the effects of which will appear anew in the future -- "The Holy Germano-Roman Empire" . . . there is thus a fraternal relationship between the Roman and German state-ideas . . . young Germans enlisted in enormous numbers in the Roman legions . . . Even the Caesarean world empire was strongly influenced by German forces; in Gaul, as well as in the East against Pompey, Germans won the victories for the Roman eagles. . . . If only our voice could be joined with that of the Vatican, which today forms the one point of stability in the general madness . . . 'Catholics of all lands -- unite!' is the challenge that must precede the approaching revolution in the West. This Protestantism was the real forerunner of atheism and is guilty of having forced millions out of the Christian community" (Lowenstein, After Hitler's Fall, 1-4; 12:3; 53; 194:5).
He believes that the Roman Eagle will be a major symbol of the coming Reich, together with the cross. So did Daniel and Jesus. It might be said to be an impersonation of the Laodicean Church Age. As a matter of interest, the extended arm salute was used by the ancient Hittites (Edomites), Romans, Germans of the Middle Ages, Spanish Falangists and Italian Fascists, as well as the Nazis.
We sing: "O come, O come Emanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that mourns in lowly exile here, until the Son of God appear. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emanuel, will come to thee O Israel".
Zechariah 14:20-21 said, "In
that day HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD shall play from the bells
of the horses (like the bells on
garment of beauty and holiness of the high priest on the
day of Atonement); the pots in the
LORD'S house shall be holy like the bowls before the
altar. Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy
unto the LORD of hosts: those who sacrifice shall take
them to seethe: and in that day there shall be no more
