Chapter 16—The Rise of Financial Babylon, Part 2

Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, part 49—Israel becomes one fold with one Shepherd

At about the midpoint of the previous installment, I stated that I must now do some extensive biblical and historical review in order for my readers to see how this all fits and makes sense, up to and beyond the rise of financial Babylon, right up to today. We are in the midst of that review. Continuing from where we left off…

We find during the time of Jesus, that Herod, the king of the Jews, was an Idumean”—the Bible says—which is the Greek-derived form of the word for Edomite. Actually, Herod was only half-Edomite. His other side was of true Judahite ancestry.

By the way, you will hear me use that term Judahite” from time to time. I do that to distinguish it from the word Jew,” as it is commonly understood today. As we have just seen, over a century before Christ, the Jewish people absorbed Edom under forced conversions.”

So when I use the term Judahite,” I am referring to those who were true descendants of the patriarchs, Judah and his father, Jacob-Israel. My use of the term Judahite” therefore excludes those who were descended from Jacob’s twin, Esau-Edom.

Interestingly, all of the apostles, with the exception of Judas, were from Galilee. Galilee was the area where the descendants of the tribe of Benjamin had settled after the return from the Babylonian Captivity four hundred or more years before Christ.

However, we must remember that the apostles James and Jude were the half-brothers of Jesus, and therefore, like Jesus, they also were descended from Judah, although they most likely lived in Galilee.

Judas, on the other hand, is identified as Judas Iscariot, which means man from Kerioth.” Kerioth was a town in the land of Edom, so you can draw your own conclusion about his likely ancestry.

Back in the book of Jeremiah, there are two kinds of Jews which God describes as good figs” and bad figs.” That is a fig-urative description, of course. Back at the time of Jeremiah, all the figs—both good and bad—were literal Israelites of the Judah nation. No Edomites there, as far as I can tell.

However, by the time our Savior had come along, the Jewish people had become somewhat mixed with Edomite blood, as we have just seen.

Next, recall the very unusual behavior of Jesus as He passed by a tree and cursed it, remember that? It is a good thing that the green Police, the environmentalist extremists, weren’t around then, or Jesus would have been in big trouble!

But what kind of tree was it? ….Yes, it was a fig tree! If Jesus cursed it, you can be sure it was not the good figs, but He was cursing the bad figs. It represented the Jewish nation, and more specifically its evil and corrupt rulers—and thus in another place, Jesus spoke to and about the rulers of the Jewish nation when He directed this their way in …

Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

Now turn to John, chapter 10. As we lay another stone in our foundation for understanding financial Babylon here, you will recall that Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd. Moreover, God’s people Israel are called His sheep” in numerous places in the Old Testament.

No other nation or group of people are ever called His sheep. According to the Bible, only Israelites are sheep. With that in mind, can you understand then what Jesus was really saying in this section of the gospel of John?

John 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

Do you hear that? Jesus says that He knows who His sheep are; that is, He could discern who His Israel people were, because remember, Jesus is living and ministering among a nation of people who had been intermingled with Edomites for over a century now.

Not only that, but Jesus declares that His sheep recognize their Shepherd. He said I am known of mine.” And remember, the true sheep among them were descended from those of the Kingdom of Judah who had returned from exile in Babylon.

Going way back, over seven centuries before Christ, the ten-tribed nation of Israel had not only been deported out of the land of Israel, but they never came back. Where were they? (And hence the idea of the ten lost tribes of Israel.) Well, they were not lost to the Savior. He then spoke about them in verse 16:

John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

There are several important points to notice here in John 10, but first, let’s take a quick look in Matthew 3. The first point is that Jesus identifies them as other sheep. They were not goats, not pigs, not vipers or snakes or dogs; they were sheep. That is, in Bible symbolism, they were Israelites.

By the way, when He called them sheep, everyone understands that it is symbolic language; that sheep is a metaphor, a figure of speech. No one takes that literally. Keep that in mind as one encounters other residents of the Bible zoo.” So consider now when John the Baptist first came on the scene.

Matthew 3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation [meaning: offspring] of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Now before we get back to John 10, just realize that all the descendants of Esau-Edom could also claim Abraham as their father, and they would be correct, wouldn’t they? John the Baptist continues:

Matthew 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Now returning to the gospel of John, chapter 10 and verse 16 (above), we see that Jesus declared there were other sheep, but that they were not of this fold. What fold? We should first explain the meaning of the word fold” here.

The Greek word is aule {ow-lay’} and although we could get very deep into the symbolism with all the nuances of the word, suffice it to say for our purposes here that it referred to (from the lexicons): a roofless enclosure by a wall, in the open country, in which the flocks were herded at night, a sheepfold.”

It could also refer to a house itself. So can you see that Jesus has thus referred to only two folds of sheep? Can you see that those would be the sheep that are enclosed,” so to speak, in the two Houses of 12-tribed Israel. Those two Houses were the ten-tribed House of Israel and the two-tribed House of Judah.

When Jesus said this fold,” He was obviously referring to those of the House of Judah who were right there in Judea. The other fold was the ten-tribed House of Israel which had gone into the Assyrian Captivity and which tribes had never returned to the old land of Israel.

Instead they had become lost” over the intervening centuries as they migrated mostly in a northwesterly direction. Therefore, some 600 to 700 years later, many of them were then residing in Asia Minor (modern Turkey) and many more millions of them had already begun to spread across Europe and into Scandinavia and the British Isles.

Of course, they had long since lost their name and identity as Israel and they were known under a multitude of other names. At one point in His ministry Jesus directed his 12 apostles in Matthew 10, to…

Matthew 10: 5 … Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

And therefore, after the ascension of Jesus, many of the apostles began going throughout those areas preaching the good news to the other fold of sheep. But let’s get back to John 10 and verse 16 once again.

The third point concerning this verse is that Jesus declared that these Israelite people, including the sheep people of the other fold, the lost Israelites in Europe, would hear His voice, and they all would become one fold. Now if Jesus declared something, do you think He could have been mistaken? No, if Jesus said it, it was going to happen.

So what happened? Hold that thought while we continue down in verse 19 because we are coming to something extraordinarily significant. What was the result of Jesus speaking so boldly as this?

John 10:19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.

Hmmm… Why do you suppose there was a division among them? Do you suppose it could have anything to do with the fact that many among them were of Esau-Edom? Let’s see.

24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.

26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Oh, my! Do you understand what Jesus just said? He was addressing some of the Jews who were antagonistic to Him and He plainly told them: you do not believe because you are not Israel! My Israel people hear my voice. They follow Me.

Well, what are followers of Jesus Christ called? Christians. So now, what happened? Well, there was a separation which occurred during, but especially after, the ascension of Jesus.

After Pentecost, many true Judahites who had actually been disbelievers and had actually been part of the mob calling for His crucifixion, then had a change of heart and mind. They repented.

These sheep heard the voice of their Shepherd. But in the next few decades great persecutions arose against them in Judea, so that the true Judahites who had now become Christians fled the country. They joined up with Christian Israelites of the other fold in Europe. They became one fold, with one Shepherd! And over the centuries, Europe became known as Christendom, the dominion of Christ!

Who retained the name Jews?” Primarily those of Edom. Therefore, that which has transpired over the intervening centuries was actually a fulfillment of a prophecy for the latter days, which is found in Isaiah.

Isaiah 65:14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

15 And ye [and it is speaking here about the Jewish nation] shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD [lit., Yahweh] shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:

That new name is Christian, of course. I hope you are beginning to see how this fits together now as we view it all down through the centuries. In Jeremiah’s time there were good figs and bad figs; but all Judahites, as far as I can tell.

However, by the time of Christ, Edom had become mixed into the Jewish nation, and Jesus cursed the Jewish nation—the bad figs—because they brought forth no fruit and He said the kingdom would be taken from them and given to a nation which would bring forth the fruits thereof.

Now I want to insert at this point a similar disclaimer such as I did repeatedly when discussing Roman Catholicism. God’s Word deals with nations or people groups, as well as individuals. Just because someone is of physical Israelite blood and ancestry, that does not mean that they are automatically saved or that they will be in the millennial kingdom.

No one is saved by race (ancestry), but only by grace. Any true Israelite who rejects Jesus as his King and Savior is just as lost as anyone else. Conversely, just because someone has some Jewish and/or Edomite and/or Canaanite and/or Khazar blood or ancestry, that does not mean that all those people as individuals are automatically excluded from salvation.

And I write this knowing that I have many friends of all sorts of racial and family ancestries who will be reading this teaching. After all, as you know (if you have read our Statement of Faith, we teach that God will ultimately save all human beings.

Some of that will take place in the ages to come. Meanwhile, God has predestinated certain people groups—such as true Israel, and false Israel (Canaanite Red Edom, now known as Jews)—to play their parts in God’s great drama of the ages. But individuals in those groups can opt out” and become Christians now.

So the bottom line is, that no individual reading this essay should despair of being left out of the kingdom, simply because of their ancestry. There is provision for everyone to be in the kingdom, but it is only through faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior, Messiah and King.

And so, all of this long discourse stretching back into the previous blog is to bring us to the truth which is politically incorrect to state, but which cannot be denied, and that is that the merchant bankers are exactly what Jewish sources admit and which fits the truth of the Bible to a tee.

Namely, that Esau-Edom are not only Canaanites and therefore merchants but as Jews, they were and are, the bankers. International banking (merchant banking) is predominantly controlled by certain very powerful Jewish families.

It is not a so-called conspiracy theory.” It is fact for those who care to investigate. And we shall delve into this much more deeply in the chapters to come.

Moreover, it should go without saying that we are not talking about your local neighborhood bank and the personnel there. They are like the Catholics in the pews. In general, they have no idea of the system they are part of.

Coming back to Rabbi Prinz now, I brought forth the research of Dr. Prinz into our discussion several lectures ago for multiple reasons. First, because it was not only pertinent to our discussion of the fulfillment of the prophecies about the dragon and the little horn of the papacy, but this was information which I daresay is scarcely known even today, even among Roman Catholic priests, let alone the parishioners in the pews.

Secondly, I brought it into the discussion because I foresaw that it would provide a connection later on in this series as we came to the modern era and the rise of financial Babylon. And we are now at that point of connection, which we shall take up immediately in the next installment. Stay tuned!
