Writing for Veterans Today, Dragan Filipovic wrote a fascinating and very enlightening report on Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu entitled Bibi: A False Messiah.
An ardent disciple of the radical Jewish Zionist Chabad-Lubavitcher leader Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, Netanyahu is the quintessential personification of Schneerson’s ultra-racist doctrine of Jewish supremacy.
When they first met in 1984, Chabad-Lubavitcher leader Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson prophecied that Benjamin Netanyahu shall become Israel’s prime minister who will “pass the sceptre to the Messiah.”
Of course, the Messiah already came, and Schneerson and his Pharisaical ancestors hung Him on a cross. And as we know, the Messiah had a forerunner, and his name was not Netanyahu; it was John—John the Baptist. And just exactly what “sceptre” does the lying, murdering antichrist Netanyahu have to “pass” on to anybody?
Let’s not forget that the vast majority of America’s evangelicals sit at the feet of Zionists such as Schneerson (they go by other names, of course: John Darby; C.I. Scofield; J. Dwight Pentecost; Clarence Larkin; Lewis Sperry Chafer; John Walvoord; Hal Lindsey; John Hagee; Robert Jeffress; Franklin Graham; Greg Laurie, et al.) and adopt what is now evangelicalism’s major faith system: Christian Zionism, which regurgitates Schneerson’s theology that the Messiah is coming again to establish David’s kingdom on earth. As such, I’m sure many evangelical pastors are also regurgitating Schneerson’s prophecy that Netanyahu is indeed the forerunner of Messiah’s return.
Rabbi Schneerson always supported Israeli wars and opposed any retreat. In 1974 he strongly opposed the Israeli withdrawal from the Suez area. He promised Israel divine favors if it persisted in occupying the land. After his death, thousands of his Israeli followers played an important role in the election victory of Binyamin Netanyahu. Among the religious settlers in the occupied territories, the Chabad Hassids constitute one of the most extreme groups. Baruch Goldstein, the mass murderer of Palestinians, was one of them.
Author Alison Weir condemned Schneerson in Why is the US Honoring a Racist Rabbi?:
… some of the more extreme parts of Schneerson’s teachings – such as that Jews are a completely different species than non-Jews, and that non-Jews exist only to serve Jews – have been largely hidden, it appears, even from many who consider themselves his followers … such views profoundly impact the lives of Palestinians living – and dying – under Israeli occupation and military invasions.
Likewise, Israeli Rabbi Levi Sudri spoke of “the many parallels between the prime minister and Jonathan, the son of Biblical King Saul”, and claimed that Netanyahu serves the function of Moshiach ben Yosef (Messiah from the house of Joseph) being the first part of the two stage Messianic process which includes the reestablishment of the Davidic Dynasty and the completion of the Third Temple:
“It is very clear that we see in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he is fulfilling his destiny as Moshiach ben Yosef, that is to say, the reincarnation of Jonathan,” Rabbi Sudri told Breaking Israel News ... “The name ‘Netanyahu’ (נתניהו) is composed of the same letters as the name, “Jonathan (יהונתן).”
This sentiment was repeated by Rabbi Moshe Ben Tov, who after attaching a mezuzah in the prime minister’s office, made a remarkable statement to Netanyahu, “It is very important that your love of Israel continue until the Moshiach comes because you are going stay in office and are going to meet him. You are the one who will give him the keys to this office.”
Blasphemy and antichrist occultism are ubiquitous throughout Scheerson’s theology. The international war criminal, mass murderer and genocidal maniac Benjamin Netanyahu is a reincarnated Old Testament Jonathan? He’s going to give “the keys” of David’s kingdom to Messiah? Seriously? And Christian Zionists try to accuse me of believing crazy doctrines!
Rabbi Sudri’s play on words comparing the Hebrew spelling of “Netanyahu” with that of “Jonathan” reminds me of how Scofield Futurists compare the number 666 to, well, anything they want to compare it to as proof that the former predicts the latter.
It’s all spiritualized poppycock!
“For Orthodox Jews committed to reestablishing the Temple, both the present problems of the world and the problems faced by the Jewish people will be solved only by rebuilding.”
There are millions of evangelicals who also believe that the Bible predicts the building of a third Jewish temple in which Old Covenant animal sacrifices will resume as part of Messiah’s return.
The Bible predicts no such thing. What mockery and blasphemy against the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross!
Please read the New Covenant Scripture carefully:
But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. (Hebrews 9:11 – 15)
For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. (Hebrews 10:1 – 4, 6, 9 – 14)
The very idea that part of Christ’s return would include a return to Old Covenant animal sacrifices completely nullifies the promises of the passages above and makes the eternal atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross completely meaningless.
Christopher Bollyn reports that Netanyahus’s father, Benzion Mileikowsky, was the executive secretary of Vladimir Jabotinsky, the founder of Revisionist Zionism calling for the military conquest of all of Palestine and expulsion of the non-Jewish population, and that his son always furthered those goals:
9-11 was an essential part of the Zionist deception, a terror spectacle designed to change U.S. public opinion and drag the United States military into the Middle East – to fight Israel’s enemies … Netanyahu’s first book, International Terrorism: Challenge and Response, is based on the speeches given at the Jerusalem conference in 1979.
Netanyahu has made a career of pushing the Israeli war strategy known as the ‘War on Terror’. It is a strategy of conquest in which the United States and its allies fight wars in the Middle East on behalf of the Zionist state and its war agenda. Creating a greater state of Israel, a goal of the terrorist groups that created the Likud party in the 1970s, is part of the plan.
Finally, after two frustrating decades in power and five failed coalitions, the stars had aligned for Netanyahu when in December 2022 he managed to form by far his most radical cabinet which gave him a free rein to finalize his longed-for Greater Israel plan.
Haaretz journalist Alon Pinkas described Netayahu’s coalition government as, “A kakistocracy extraordinaire: government by the worst and least suitable collection of ultranationalists, Jewish supremacists, anti-democrats, racists, bigots, homophobes, misogynists, corrupt and allegedly corrupt politicians. A ruling coalition of 64 lawmakers, of whom 32 are either ultra-Orthodox or religious Zionist.”
But this is exactly the type of cabinet which the Rebbe would have desired, and all Bibi had to do then was wait for another “9-11 moment“ to set his biblical plan in motion. Serendipitously, that event took place on October 7 in the form of the Hamas operation Al-Aqsa Flood which was triggered by repeated storming of the Al-Aqsa mosque – the third holiest site for the Islamic world – by Jewish zealots under heavy police protection and a deliberate provocation which prompted the exact reaction which the Zionist regime was seeking.
Like his fellow Likudnik and predecessor Ariel Sharon, Netanyahu is prepared to drag the rest of the world down with him in case of disaster, as Philip Giraldi recounts: “… when former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was queried about how the rest of the world might respond to Israel using its nukes to effectively wipe out its Arab neighbors, he responded ‘That depends on who does it and how quickly it happens. We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force… We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.’”
Slowly but inexorably, the U.S. is being drawn into a conflict with Iran.
To keep from facing serious felony charges in Israel for corruption, bribery, etc., Bibi would not hesitate to start World War III. It seems to me that that is exactly what Bibi intends to do. He is committing genocide in Gaza. He has ramped up military attacks against Lebanon and the West Bank. He has manipulated the U.S. and the U.K. into beginning a war with Yemen, and he is talking openly about attacking Iran directly.
(And did you notice that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell last week joined Bibi in urging Joe Biden to attack Iran? I say notice, because, as I said in this column on January 11, McConnell is the third largest recipient of bribe money from the Israeli lobby in Congress. That’s just a coincidence, of course.)
At some point in the near future, the war in Gaza could become a full-out regional war, which would draw in not only the U.S. and Great Britain but also China and Russia.
And contrary to the fanciful expectations of evangelicals, there will be NO RAPTURE. There will be NO “seven-year tribulation,” NO third Jewish temple, NO earthly Davidic kingdom and NO reestablishment of national Israel. This is all phony, false prophecy claptrap that saturated evangelical churches, colleges and seminaries at the beginning of the 20th century via Cyrus Scofield’s Zionist bought-and-paid-for notes contained in the Scofield Reference Bible.
Furthermore, economists everywhere are saying that the global hegemony of the U.S. dollar is already over. The complicity of the Feds and Congress critters in committing the mother of all Ponzi schemes against the American people on behalf of the bankers/politicians/war profiteers, etc., have decimated America’s economic stability—not to mention our military readiness.
All of this to ingratiate themselves to this international war criminal and his band of antichrist Zionists who see themselves as “God’s Chosen People” and Benjamin Netanyahu as the forerunner of the Messiah.
But, in fact, Netanyahu is not a forerunner of Messiah; he is an ambassador of Hell. And that’s exactly where the people—and nations—who follow him are going.
