It’s not by accident that there is so much confusion and disagreement within Christendom regarding Bible prophecy, specifically in the Book of Daniel, as it pertains to Israel.
Deep within the voluminous Babylonian Talmud, the “holiest” and superlative book within the Jewish religion that calls Jesus Christ a “bastard” and the “son of a whore”, is a brief rabbinic command and warning to Jews regarding anyone who attempts to understand the Book of Daniel’s prophecy of the advent of the Messiah, known as the Seventy Weeks prophecy.
“Rabbi Samuel b. Nahmani said in the name of Rabbi Jonathan: Blasted (cursed) be the bones of those who calculate the end. For they would say, since the predetermined time has arrived, and yet he has not come, he will never come.”[i]
There is a variation of this rabbinic command circulating on the Internet that is falsely attributed to “Talmud Law, p. 978, Section 2, Line 28”. Regardless, it accurately reads,
“May the bones of the hands and the bones of the fingers decay and decompose, of him who turns the pages of the book of Daniel, to find out the time of Daniel 9:24-27, and may his memory rot from off the face of the earth forever.”
For those not familiar with Christian Bible prophecy (eschatology: theology pertaining to death, judgement, and the final destiny of mankind), Daniel 9:24-27, which discusses the pivotal final week of Daniel’s prophecy, has been interpreted for the majority of Christianity’s existence as pertaining to the rebuilding of Jerusalem in anticipation of the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, culminating in His death and resurrection, totaling a prophetical span of 490 years. End of story. No gaps, no postponements, no future earthly kingdom, no Jewish theocracy, no Israeli state, no rapture, just 490 consecutive years, fulfilling the Seventy Weeks prophecy. (For a thorough explanation of the weeks, read here.)
DANIEL 9:27 And he (Messiah) shall confirm the covenant ( Rom 15:8) with many for one week (70th): and in the midst of the week he (Messieh) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (by the Cross), and for the overspreading of abominations (of the anti-Messiah Pharisees and Sadducees) he shall make it (the old Temple) desolate, even until the consummation (70AD destruction), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (the Temple torn down not one stone remaining upon another).
Most evangelical groups have been led to believe that the above passage is talking about some anti-Christ figure instead of Jesus. And consistent with the rabbinic command to obscure the timing of the fullfillment of the Seventy Weeks, evangelical Protestants have no specified dates for the weeks, just that they will be fulfilled sometime in the future. So it turns out that evangelicals are obeying the anti-Christ Babylonian Talmud over the Bible.
One can’t help but think that the new interpretation, which basically twists the scripture to mean that Daniel’s final week was mysteriously cast off from the preceding 69 (gap theory) and is still yet unfulfilled (postponement theology), is a direct result of the Talmudic command that was foisted onto Christendom’s new evangelical movement, resulting in perhaps the greatest heresy of all time: Christian Zionism.
Cyrus Ingerson Scofield: crypto-Zionist who changed America
Support for Israel, the Jews, and the Zionist state isn’t natural for Christians. It is a heresy that has been learned over the last 100 years as a direct result of the Jewish-Masonic subversion of scripture.
Cyrus I. Scofield brought Judeo-Masonic England’s Puritan-based millenarian heresy to America in the late 19th century, and was helped by Jews like Samuel Untermeyer (his handler?) in creating the Scofield Reference Bible of 1909, which would be used to infuse Jewish-Masonic heresy into Biblical exegesis (interpretation). This reference Bible came with Jewish-Masonic-friendly footnotes side by side with Biblical scripture. The Zionist establishment arranged it so that this reference Bible was the standard among Protestant leaders and teachers. This ensured that the majority of preachers would be in agreement when indoctrinating their unknowing masses with Jewish-Masonic teachings on the future, specifically relating to the idolization of the state of Israel, which would come into existence in 1948, not long after Scofield and his work changed America’s thinking regarding Israel and the Jews, and not long before America’s foreign policy was shaped as a direct result of the false interpretations contained within the Scofield footnotes.
The goal of re-establishing Israel, almost 2,000 years after God had it destroyed in 70AD by General Titus and the Romans, has been the longtime goal of Jews and Freemasons hoping to bring about their own concept of heaven on Earth. Since the Jews rejected Messiah, they would have to attempt to create their own Kingdom of God, with themselves as the central figure of worship. The Jews have perpetuated this anti-Christ utopian vision through the freemasons and Protestant groups like the Hussites, Albigensians, Puritans, and many modern evangelical groups, like the Southern Baptists.
Historian E. Michael Jones elaborates,
“…When European Christians first came in contact with Jews in significant numbers, ‘the desire of the poor to improve the material conditions of their lives became transfused with phantasies of a new Paradise on earth, a world purged of suffering and sin, a Kingdom of the saints.’ …The temptation to look for heaven on earth was known as Judaizing, which took messianic inspiration from a distorted interpretation of the Old Testament, but usually without the further distortions of the Talmud. It was a perennial temptation for Christians who failed to find solace in ‘a messiah who suffered and died [and] a kingdom which was purely spiritual.’ The Book of Daniel, the Christian Scripture most likely to be corrupted by Judaizers, seemed to prophesy an earthly kingdom while also offering a key to understanding history in the parable of the colossus with the feet of clay.”[ii]
The rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, in direct defiance of God, who destroyed it in 70AD, is a constant theme throughout Freemasonry and secret societies, as well as establishing Jerusalem and Israel as the central hub of the world (world government). Through Kabbalah, which is basically Jewish magic, Jews and masons believe they can attain their goals of creating an earthly paradise. Since the Renaissance, they have experimenting with various methods of achieving this, whether through black and white magic, alchemy, divination, transhumanism, technocracy, or necromancy, to name a few. The Babylonian Talmud itself can only have been inspired by fallen angels, passed down from generation to generation by willing anti-Christ rabbinical authorities.
Has the past century been shaped by a mere misinterpretation of the Book of Daniel?
It might seem incredible, especially to non-Christians, that the whole Jewish-Masonic mess in which we currently live could be based upon this rabbinic command to mislead Christians on the timing of Daniel’s weeks. But it’s Messianic implications are huge. The correct interpretation puts Christ at the centre of prophecy, namely that He fulfilled most of it, save the final judgment. The rabbinic-inspired interpretation, which most evangelical Protestants embrace, puts Jews at the centre of Bible prophecy and the Seventy Weeks fulfillment, which is extremely idolatrous. Are we, as a nation accepting Scofield heresy, being cursed by God for worshipping Israel and the Jews and abandoning the true God? Consider the outcome of a world without Scofield’s heresy. There would have been no support for the Jewish-Masonic goal of creating the state of Israel, no support of the Jewish people as God’s chosen, no need for the Nazis to pave the way for the creation of the state of Israel, no endless wars for Israel, no slaughter of the Palestinians…and perhaps many more alternate outcomes.
“If there had been no Scofield Bible, American presidents influenced by Christian Zionism, such as Truman, Johnson, Reagan and George W. Bush, would most likely have been less sympathetic to Israeli demands, and consequently more attentive to U.S. interests”, writes Israel Shamir. “Moreover, the American people might have been spared the well-publicized pro-Israeli rants of John Hagee, Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell, not to mention the lucrative End Times “prophecy” peddled by Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye.”[iii]
One can certainly see why the rabbis would invent such a curse. Calculating Daniel according to exactly how it is written would have hindered their plans for attempting to set up their false kingdom.
“May the curse of heaven fall upon those who calculate the date of the advent of the Messiah, and thus create political and social unrest among the people.”[iv]
This Satanic proscription not only deceives Christians and the Western world, it deceives Jews, who are being hindered by the rabbinic theocracy from seeing Jesus as the fulfillment of Daniel’s weeks.
