Israel: The Synagogue of Satan (Part 4)Submitted by Pastor Chad Wagner on Sunday, March 24, 2019.
9. The scripture does not prophesy of a time when Israel would be gathered into the land of Palestine as a nation again after the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70AD. A. But it does prophesy of a time when Edom would try to be rebuilt, but God would destroy it (Mal 1:4). i. The unelect, unbelieving Jews are spiritually the Edomites, whom God has indignation against forever (Mal 1:1-4 c/w Rom 9:6-13 c/w Rom 11:7-10). ii. They don't believe their own scriptures (Luk 16:31; Joh 5:46-47). iii. They deny that Jesus is the Christ and are therefore antichrists (1Jo 2:22-23; 2Jo 1:7,9). iv. They hate Jesus Christ, which their writings in the Talmud show, and therefore they hate God the Father (Luk 10:16; Joh 15:23-24). a. "Did Jesus of Nazareth deserve that a search be made for an argument in his favor? Surely he incited others to idol worship, and regarding such a person the Torah says (Deuteronomy 13:9): "You shall not spare, nor shall you conceal him," teaching that no efforts should be made to find arguments that might lead to his acquittal! Rather, it must be that the case of Jesus was different, because he had close connections with the non-Jewish authorities, and those authorities were interested in his acquittal. Thus it was necessary to give him all the opportunity to clear himself, so that the justice of his conviction not be challenged." (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 43a) b. "He then went and raised by incantations the sinners of Israel. He asked them: Who is in repute in the other world? They replied: Israel. What about joining them? They replied: Seek their welfare, seek not their harm. Whoever touches them touches the apple of his eye. He said: What is your punishment? They replied: With boiling hot excrement, since a Master has said: Whoever mocks at the words of the Sages is punished with boiling hot excrement." (Babylonian Talmud, Gittin 57a) (i) "The partly censored Soncino Talmud refers to Jesus in this passage [Gittin 57a] as "sinners of Israel." However, the early Babylonian Talmud manuscript preserved in the Vatican library (generally referred to as Vatican 130), as well as the fourteenth century Babylonian Talmud - Munich Codex Hebraicus 95 (generally referred to as Munich 95) - have the name of Jesus in place of the code-phrase "sinners of Israel," which was inserted in later, redacted editions, such as the Vilna. The Soncino restores Jesus' name to this passage in a footnote (footnote no. 4 to Gittin 57a in the 1990 edition)." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 242) (ii) Therefore, the Talmud states that Jesus is in hell being boiled in hot excrement. c. "Jesus...stood up a brick to symbolize an idol and bowed down to it. Jesus performed magic and incited the people of Israel and led them astray." (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 107b) d. "The Talmud (Babylonian edition) records other sins of "Jesus the Nazarene": 1. He and his disciples practiced sorcery and black magic, led Jews astray into idolatry, and were sponsored by foreign, gentile powers for the purpose of subverting Jewish worship (Sanhedrin 43a). 2. He was sexually immoral, worshipped statues of stone (a brick is mentioned), was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness, and refused to repent (Sanhedrin 107b; Sotah 47a). 3. He learned witchcraft in Egypt and, to perform miracles, used procedures that involved cutting his flesh—which is also explicitly banned in the Bible (Shabbos 104b)." (Jews & Hasidic Gentiles - United to Save America, Who Was Jesus?, http://www.noahide.com/yeshu.htm) v. Therefore, if the rebuilt nation of Israel is a fulfillment of prophecy, it is a fulfillment of the prophecy of the rebuilt nation of Edom which God hates and will destroy. 10. "Judeo-Christian" values are a sham. A. Judaism does not share Christian values. Consider what Judaism has to say about the following. i. Abortion a. "Rashi, the venerated twelfth century Judaic interpreter of the Bible and Talmud, says of the fetus: "lav nefesh hu - it is not a person." Rabbi Meir Abulafia decreed, "So long as the fetus is inside the womb, it is not a nefesh, and the Torah has no pity on it." The noted Judaic legal scholar Rabbi Isaac Schorr stated: "The sense of the Talmud is that a fetus is not a person" (Responsa Koah Schorr, no. 20). The Talmud contains the expression "ubar yerech imo" - the fetus is as the thigh of its mother, i.e., the fetus is deemed to be part of the pregnant woman's body. The Greek philosopher Aristotle regarded the unborn child in its first seven days as a "secretion" (ekrysis). In rabbinic law the status of "secretion" lasts for the first forty days of gestation. In Judaism the woman is not regarded as pregnant until the baby in her womb is more than forty days old." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, pp. 312-313) b. ""...polls have shown that more Jews support abortion rights and Roe v. Wade than any other religious or ethnic community in the United States, according to the Union for Reform Judaism." (Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Jewish Women Blast Bush Policies at Huge Abortion-rights Rally in D.C., www.jta.org) c. ""It’s so important that we do this under Jewish auspices,” said Roni Berkowitz, president of the Chesapeake Jewish Reconstructionist Federation, which represents the Washington area. “It’s not just a matter of choice. The Talmud teaches us there are times that it is incumbent on women to have an abortion,” she said, referring to instances where abortion is allowed if the mother’s life is in jeopardy." (Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Jewish Women Blast Bush Policies at Huge Abortion-rights Rally in D.C., www.jta.org) d. "According to Isser Unterman, Chief Rabbi of the Israeli state (1964), with regard to the fetus designated a rodef [pursuer]: "The fetus before birth need not be protected and his status renders abortion not murder."" (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 315) e. The Bible teaches that a child is created at conception (Isa 7:14 c/w Mat 1:23) and murder is always wrong (Mat 19:18). ii. Fornication a. "Here is what Judaism actually teaches about pre-marital sex: "Akdamot, an academic journal on Jewish thought published by Beit Morasha, analyzed the opinions of leading halachic authorities from the Middle Ages, such as Nachmanides, and those of the modern era, such as Rabbi Ya'acov Emden, and showed that many permitted sexual relations without marriage. In an arrangement sanctioned by Jewish law, according to these opinions, the woman becomes a pilegesh, or concubine. Neither the man nor the woman has any obligations or rights, but both must adhere to family purity (Niddah/menstruation) laws in accordance with Halacha."" (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 55) b. The Bible on the other hand completely forbids fornication (1Co 6:18; 1Th 4:3). iii. Pedophilia a. "...intercourse with a boy under nine years old is not considered a significant sexual act..." (Babylonian Talmud, Ketubot 11b) b. "If a boy under the age of nine perpetrated sodomy upon an adult, the adult is not liable for punishment, for the intercourse of a boy under nine years of age is not legally an act of intercourse. Since a child less than nine years old cannot commit sodomy, he can also not be the object of sodomy." (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 54b) c. "Our Rabbis taught the following Baraita: "If a woman acted lewdly with her minor son, in the course of which he engaged with her in the first stage of sexual intercourse, the School of Shammai say: He disqualified her from marrying into the priesthood. And the School of Hillel disagree and say that she remains fit to marry into the priesthood."" (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 69b) d. "In the particular circumcision rite (bris milah) mandated in many Hasidic sects, the mohel (rabbinic circumciser) performs fellatio on the infant (metzitzah b' peh). Hence, every Judaic boy in various Hasidic sects has been homosexually molested since birth. In June, 2006 the New York State Department of Health renewed its permission for metzitzah b' peh. In the Kabbalah, ritual fellatio of Judaic baby boys is of considerable significance." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 361) e. ""If a girl is less than three years old, it is permitted to be secluded with her. Likewise, if a boy is less than nine years old a woman is permitted to be alone with him." (Kitzur Shulchan Aruch: Classic guide to Jewish Law (Metsudah Pubications, 1996), v.2, p. 1023)" (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 362) f. "If a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl, it is nothing, for having intercourse with a girl less than three years old is like putting a finger in the eye." (Babylonian Talmud, Ketubot 11b) g. "Though the Talmud's permission for the heinous crime of child molestation is virtually unknown among the public and is never mentioned in the establishment media, among Talmud researchers it is notorious. This portion of tractate Ketubot concerns Halakhic definitions of sexual intercourse. In this particular ruling it is stated that copulation with girls below the age of three cannot be considered sexual activity because, although penetration ruptures her hymen, such intercourse is merely "like putting a finger in the eye," since the hymen at this age will eventually regenerate ("just as a finger stuck in an eye will cause the eye to water, yet the eye will heal and return to its former state, so the hymen of a girl under three will rupture during intercourse but will heal later"). Once her hymen grows back, the little girl is regarded as lawfully still a virgin. Hence the Talmud recognizes no sexual intercourse as having occurred and therefore exacts no penalty for coitus with a female child of less than three years of age." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 362) h. The condemns fornication (1Co 6:18; 1Th 4:3). i. Incest is especially condemned (1Co 5:1). j. How much more so is pedophilia a heinous sin! k. These quotes from the Talmud prove that Judaism is a desperately wicked, evil religion. iv. Lying/breaking oaths a. "The rabbis rule that "if the teacher is telling stories which are not true, but is doing so leshem shamyim (for the sake of heaven), so long as he doesn't make a habit out of it, there is a place to be lenient in this matter, however, one should try to minimize this."" (Michael Hoffman (quoting Rabbi H. Oberlander), Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 146) b. "Rabbi Samuel Strashun: "...if no practical benefit is gained by telling the truth, and some form of emotional gain is attained with a lie, then the lie is permitted."" (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 160) c. The Bible condemns lying (Eph 4:25; Col 3:9). v. Bribery and judicial activism a. "The rabbis put a high value on manipulation of gentile judges and courts. In America we have seen the extent to which the law has been made by judges rather than legislatures representing the will of the people. This usurpation is Talmudic. Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser: "The growth of Talmudic Law, in all its aspects, was for the most part, the work of judicial interpretation rather than of formal legislation...The judge served in effect as a creator of law and not only as its interpreter..."" (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 164) b. Maybe it is not just a coincidence that judicial activism has increased in America during the same time that Zionism has grown. B. Judaism is no friend of Gentiles. i. "A non-Jew who engages in the study of the Torah is liable for execution." (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 59a) ii. "Even the kindness of gentiles toward Jews is a sin." (Babylonian Talmud, Bava Batra 10b) iii. "Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai who said: "Even the best of the gentiles should be killed."" (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 140) iv. "[Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai] is revered as the architect of the Kabbalah." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 141) v. "If a gentile kills a Jew, the gentile is to be killed. But if a Jew kills a gentile, the Jew is to go free. (BT Sanhedrin 57a)." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 192) vi. "Yitzhak Ginsburg is "one of the Lubavitcher sect's leading authorities on Jewish mysticism, the St. Louis born rabbi, who also has a degree in mathematics, speaks freely of Jews' genetic-based, spiritual superiority over non-Jews." Ginsburg told Jewish Week, "If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish like has an infinite value. There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life."" (Michael Hoffman (quoting Jewish Week, April 26, 1996), Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 192) vii. "All gentile children are animals" (Babylonian Talmud, Yebamoth 98a) viii. "Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world - only to serve the People of Israel...With gentiles, it will be like any person - they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one's donkey would die, they'd lose their money. This is his servant... That's why he gets a long life, to work well for his Jew. Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created." (Michael Hoffman (quoting the article: "Yosef: Gentiles exist only to serve Jews" in the Jerusalem Post, October 18, 2010), Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 206) ix. ""The founder of Lubavitcher Hasidism taught that there is a difference of essence between the souls of Jews and the souls of gentiles, that only in the Jewish soul does there reside a spark of divine vitality...Moreover, this characterization of gentiles as being inherently evil, as being spiritually as well as biologically inferior to Jews, has not in any way been revised in later Habad writing."" (Michael Hoffman (quoting The New Republic, May 4, 1992), Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 218) C. Judaism has the utmost disdain for Christians. i. "Christianity is judged to be idol worship by every major halachic authority from Maimonides to the Chafetz Chaim. Idol worship is a death penalty offense under the "Noahide" laws. Jesus himself is frequently referred to as an "idol" in popular Orthodox Judaic literature." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, pp. 199-200) ii. The following are paraphrases by Michael Hoffman of the teaching of the Talmud concerning Christians and Christianity. a. "Christians are allied with hell, and Christianity is worse than incest. (BT Avodah Zarah 17a). "Going to prostitutes is the same as becoming a Christian. (BT Avodah Zarah 17a). "Those who read the Gospels are doomed to hell. (BT Sanhedrin 90a). "When the Messiah comes, he will destroy the Christians. (BT Sanhedrin 99a). "Christians ("min" or "minim") and others who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations. Sanhedrin 90a. Those who read the New Testament ("uncanonical books") will have no portion in the world to come. (BT Rosh Hashanah 17a). "Jews must destroy the books of the Christians, i.e. the New Testament: "The Books of the Minim (Christians) may not be saved from fire, but they must be burnt in their place." (BT Shabbat 116a)." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, pp. 238-239) D. Judaics have included decoy texts in the Talmud to keep Gentiles from finding out what they really think of them. i. "Judaism has decoy statements threaded within its sacred texts intended primarily for gentile consumption." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 122) ii. "Rabbis resort to decoy texts to deceive Christians and gentiles. Apologists for Judaism allude to the saying of R. Meir in BT Abodah Zara 3a: "A gentile who studies God's law is equal to a high priest." They do so in the expectation that their gentile audience has never heard of another text, BT Sanhedrin 59a: "A non-Jew who engages in the study of the Torah is liable for execution." (Michael Hoffman, Judaism's Strange Gods, p. 60) iii. These texts make it easy for the Rabbis to conceal their true feelings toward Christians and Gentiles. 11. The modern nation of Israel is a Satanic counterfeit of God's ancient nation of Israel. A. It has been used by Satan to deceive millions of professing Christians into supporting his agenda. B. Because of dispensationalism, most so-called Christians today support the nation of Israel spiritually, politically, and financially (through the government, and some personally). C. The support of the nation of Israel has bankrupted the US through all of its wars in the Middle East and has left millions dead, maimed, and displaced from their homes. D. Because of Zionist, dispensational teaching, most Christians are expecting Jesus to return and reign on his throne in Israel on this earth for 1000 years. i. This heresy has prepared millions of Christians to accept a false Christ. ii. This false Christ could be the messiah that the Jews are waiting for who they believe will come and exalt the nation of Israel and give them world dominion E. Many Christians are deceived into believing that they must support the nation of Israel or they will be cursed by God. i. This is due to a faulty understanding of Gen 12:3, Gen 27:29, and Num 24:9. ii. This promise was made to Abraham and his seed (Gen 12:3 c/w Gen 22:17-18 c/w Gen 26:4 c/w Gen 28:14). iii. Jesus Christ was the seed to whom the promise was made (Gal 3:16). iv. All that are in Christ, both Jews and Gentiles, are Abraham's seed and heirs of that promise (Gal 3:29). v. Therefore, those who bless the Israel of God (Gal 6:16) (God's elect Jews and Gentiles - Gal 6:15) will be blessed and those who curse them will be cursed. E. We should not be helping the ungodly nation of Israel because they hate the LORD (2Ch 19:2 c/w Luk 10:16 c/w Joh 15:23-24). F. This is one reason that the wrath of God is upon our nation (2Ch 19:2).
