“In that day, the remnant of Israel, the survivors of the house of Jacob, will no longer rely on him who struck them down but will truly rely on Yahveh, the Holy One of Israel.  A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God.  Though your people, O Israel, be like the sand by the sea, only a remnant will return.”                                                                                                                                                                                                           Isaiah 10.20-22

Yahveh will have compassion on Jacob; once again he will choose Israel and will settle them in their own land.  Aliens will join them and unite with the house of Jacob.                                                                                                                                                                                                           Isaiah 14.1

 

 “Glorious return” or “final solution”?                                

Since 1948 Jews have been returning to the Land of Promise under a Zionist platform to rebuild the nation, even to the ancient glory which it knew under King David, even to the establishment of Greater Israel[1], stretching from the Sinai to the Euphrates.  Is this the great return described in prophecy?  Do we need to differentiate the returning people from those who claim to be their guardians?  Should we set to one side those who come to the land of promise out of hope in the promise and out of hope in the God of the promise, while, on the other side, we set the aggressive power structure which has assumed the role of orchestrating the return and the political agenda of these people?  Is it possible that the dream of return is being used by powerful forces in order to position millions of Jews in a battle which will produce no victory for the Israel of God, but rather threatens to become a Zionist enabling of a Final Solution?

Hitler did not hate the Jews because they were good bankers.  Hitler and his Vril, Thule, and Ahnenerbe societies were drinking the wine of occultism.  Behind every overt political agenda they despised the Jews because they were the people of the Book, the people of Torah, the descendants of Abraham.  They despised the people and the Book because they represent the Law of the Creator God.[2]  They despised the Law and the Creator because occultism, Gnosticism, and Kabbalah all celebrate a cosmology where Lucifer sits enthroned over all things, where the Creator  [“demiurge”] is blamed as the source of an imperfect Creation, and where his Law is scorned as an impediment designed to restrain the natural excellence of man.

Hitler is dead, but the heirs of his occultism are alive and well, revealing their true colors in the halls of Zionism[3], within the Muslim elite[4], in the Vatican[5], and in the media of popular culture.  The same Madame Blavatsky who inspired Hitler is also the source of the Theosophy which is professed to be the philosophical guide of the architects of the United Nations.[6]  Do not imagine that the occult elites have any love for the Israel of God or for the God of Israel.  They despise Torah and divine law.  When the opportunity arrives, the leaders of the nations, who are broadly devoted to the occult agenda, will take pleasure in visiting holocaust once again upon the nettlesome People of the Book.

Scripture has significant things to say about an apocalyptic time when, just in advance of the arrival of a global society, the armies of the nations will surround Jerusalem.  On the one hand, it will be a time of unspeakable horror, from which people in the neighborhood of Jerusalem should flee:

“…then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.  Let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of the house.  Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak.  How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!  Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath.  For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again.  If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened…”                                                           Matthew 24. 16-22

Luke’s record includes a few additional specifications:

“When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.  Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.  For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written….Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”     Luke 21.20-24

There will be huge suffering.  But Zechariah tells us that there is another side to the story.  Yahveh will use this moment once again to demonstrate to Israel his faithfulness.  When they are without hope and without claim of virtue, he, by his mercy, will again reveal to them who it is who first formed them as a nation, who took a wandering Aramean and made his children into a nation, who redeemed that nation from Egypt, and who is faithful to all his promises to Abraham and the patriarchs in spite of centuries of rebellion:

“I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling.  Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem.  On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations.  All who try to move it will injure themselves.  On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares Yahveh.  “I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations….On that day I will make the leaders of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves.”                             Zechariah 12.2-6

It appears that in spite of the dreadful nature of the conflict between Israel and the nations, and in spite of the suffering of Israel, it will not become a day of victory for the nations.  The nations will run into trouble.  “All who try to move [Jerusalem] will injure themselves.”  The nations forget that the God of Israel is hopelessly loyal, that he is a romantic, and that he loves even the dust of Jerusalem.  Many will be saved, even among those who imagined that they would establish Jerusalem by their own hand.  What will be the offshoot of this gracious intervention obstructing the armies of the nations?

“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication.  They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.                       ”Zechariah  12.10,11

They will at last recognize their king, Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel!

I recently received an email from a man in Israel who actively seeks out people in all nations who might recognize themselves as belonging to one of the ten tribes of Israel.  He is searching beyond the domain of mainline Judaism in the belief that the settlement of Greater Israel will require the return and settlement of the descendants of the “lost” ten tribes.

He had had found me on the internet and considered me a reasonable prospect.  He then sent me a very cordial letter, explaining that he and his associates are devoted to this ingathering of Greater Israel and would I not be ready to undertake the beginnings of a conversation in which we “attempt to recognize all that we hold in common and attempt to downplay our differences?”  I copy here excerpts from his letter:

“Dear Lawrence,

“I looked at your Site.  Great insight and wisdom.  The fact that we may interpret things a bit differently while we agree basically, makes for this persistent division which keeps us all apart. …So you mentioned the Blessing of Abraham.  Let me briefly spell out my vision here….Btw the place where God gave the first Promise in this regard [Gen. 12.12] to Avraham is only some 25 km away from our Guest House here in Shomron [Samaria] Israel.  It is my favorite spot to take guests, because this is where it all started in regard of which it will all end!… In later confirmations of this Promise, God defines it to Abraham becoming a father of an uncountable nation of people.  Later development in Scripture defines this at a Time when his descendants will RETURN from across the earth.  Those in the world who do believe in this RETURN apply it to Jews [Tribe Judah] only.  [I am an orthodox Jew myself, as is my colleague, Rabbi F.]  Problem is, there are only 14 million Jews world wide [7 mil in Israel].  We are much into the topic of the Greater Israel these days – Biblical promise incl. lands of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan [ref. Wikipedia].  14 million Jews by far is insufficient to settle even the current disputed land territory of Israel!  So?

“Our favorite topic which we promote thru …[our organization] sees multiple millions of people from ALL nations in this Promise – virtually the re-identified souls from the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel who HAVE to return acc. to Prophecy.  YOU are one of them – hence our discussion!  We find many daily.  There will be hundreds of millions in the end – it is a vast expanse of Land.  The 10 Tribes intermingled with ALL nations during the 2800 years of exile.  It will be the GREATEST Event ever, their RETURN!

“Problem is [the hard part] that the world also will claim this Abrahamic Blessing – on their easy wishful thinking terms.  The entire matter of the Exile acc. to Scripture is a Divorce.  When the Great Husband in His Mercy receives the harlot Bride back, surely it is still on His never changing terms; surely she now has to tow the line?

“This is the problem.

“The subject is so wide that it can go FAR to keep us in agreement.  We will tackle the rest later – or just learn to forebear each other for it while we stride along HOME to the Promised Land.  Here are some links – tell me what it says to you….”

The links were true to what was being suggested in the email, that they are recruiting candidates to go out and settle Greater Israel, presumably immediately consequent upon the moment when the Zionists make a move and take control of the ancient boundaries of Greater Israel, which includes much of the land mass of those countries listed in his email.

Many people, Zionists in particular, believe that Israel can be legitimately whatever Jews make it to be.  That model might be true for France or England or the United States or ancient Rome.  They are what they are.  They live under no antecedent claim demanding a certain determinant character in the polity.  If a great man establishes himself as monarch, the nation may be, without stigma, a legitimate monarchy.  Should the people revolt and establish themselves as a republic with a constitution, they are what they have chosen to be, a constitutional republic, without need for apology.

Israel is not like the other nations.  Yahveh formed it for himself by covenant with descendants of Abraham.  Israel now belongs to its Messiah, its anointed king, Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, and it can set no meaningful course estranged from its king.

After the formative days at Mt. Sinai, Moses sent twelve spies to investigate the land of promise prior to the advance of the people northward.  Only two returned with confidence that by God’s power they could overcome great obstacles and take the land.  The people refused to answer Moses’ call to go forward.  Then God pronounced judgment on them, told them that because of their inability to trust him they would now be bound to remain in the desert for forty years, and only the next generation would be allowed to enter the land.  The pride of the people being stung, they then said, “Okay, we will go!”  Moses then warned them that they would be setting out without the blessing and guardian Presence of Yahveh.  They set out anyway, and they were crushed in combat.

An Israel which divests itself of its God is an Israel with no past and no future.  Israel was born in the promises of Yahveh to Abraham.  It was formed through covenant with the patriarchs, establishing God as royal Lord, and the people of the covenant as his subjects.  Repeated prophecy marked Israel as the foundation from which would come the child of destiny, “the seed of the woman who crushes the head of the serpent.”  The prophets of Israel revealed that the one who would crush Satan would be the Messiah of Israel, and for him the generations waited in anticipation.

The Messiah came to Israel and gave himself as Passover sacrifice.  Just as the blood over the doorways of Goshen warded off the angel of death, so the sacrifice of Yeshua released mankind from the curse of death.  He re-engineered the nation state to become a kingdom in the hearts of men across the planet, men and women who are bound to Yahveh through the Spirit of Yeshua indwelling them, men and women who yet look forward to the return to earth of Yeshua and the establishment of the brick and mortar Israel of promise.

There is no Israel apart from the rule of its Redeemer over it.  The promises to Abraham are in every way accomplished through Christ alone, and there is no redemption or salvation of Israel apart from her Messiah.  The Zionist entity which is rooted in occultism and Qabala cannot claim to be the Israel of promise.  A “nation of promise” which spurns the source of all its promise is a study in delusion.  In the links which O. sent me I found mention of our king sadly missing, and so I wrote him this reply:

“My Dear O.,

“I want very much to share in that which we hold in common and agree to disagree on that which we see differently.  We must also agree to speak freely and honestly and without compromise those things which are in our hearts.

“It would be sad if we should entertain ourselves with half truths because half truths are all that we know how to share.  We are in a time of real emergency, so that in this time I want to share as clearly as possible those uncomfortable truths which grieve me. 

 “I am very much of the mind of my Orthodox friends in Neturei Karta, knowing that there can be no kingdom of Israel without the Messiah of Israel.  On this ground they vigorously reject the Zionist agenda.   I do, however, part company with Neturei Karta where they await a first appearance of the Messiah, while I know that Yeshua is the Messiah, ruling in this time over a living kingdom, transcendent Israel.

 “If Abraham had been a normal sort of man, eager to cash in on God’s promise of land, then after his battle with the kings he would have made a deal with Melchizedek, telling him, ‘With my army, my resources and my alliances; with your established kingship and priesthood, and with your impenetrable city….together we can make this thing happen — this which has been promised to me by God: two people like us can establish the kingdom of heaven on earth!  Let’s do it!’

 “But Abraham was not a normal man.  He was the exception, and that is why God loved him. He waited on God and accepted nothing, not even grazing land, unless it was from the hand and providence of Yahveh.  He knew that the Promised Land was far more than a promise of land.  He knew that it was a promise of the ultimate kingdom in which man and God are in total union.  He knew that this promise was meaningless short of the royal Presence of the Messiah.  

 “Abraham was in no rush to step out in advance of his king. Therefore he also had plenty of time to conduct himself honorably with his Philistine friends, even making alliances….alliances meant to extend into our time.[7]

 “It is worth noting that, contrary to the credo of all Dominionists [Christian, Muslim, and Jew], the faithful do not conquer the world and then the Messiah comes.  The final muster described in Revelation reveals that our king appears ready for battle and the troops of heaven follow his royal lead:

 Then I saw heaven open wide – and there was a white horse!  His rider is faithful and true, yea just are his judgments and his warfare; his eyes are a flame of fire, on his head are many diadems, he bears a written name which none knows but himself.  He is clad in a robe dipped in blood [his name is called THE LOGOS OF GOD], and the troops of heaven follow him on white horses, arrayed in pure white linen…And on his robe, upon his thigh, his name is written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.                                Revelation 19.11-14,16

 “Abraham knew that only under the Messiah — however many centuries it should take — shall the promise be fulfilled, because the promise IS the Messiah: God in the presence of man, total covenant union, “I will be your God and you will be my people.”

“I,  Lawrence, at this moment, in Chicago, own that union with the Messiah of Israel. He is today on the eternal throne of David, the Lamb in the midst of the very throne of God, in total union with Yahveh: Yahveh Yeshua Ha Mashiach, a code inscribed in the Tanakh in equal letter spacing.[8]

 “I am, even now, though stationed at a remote outpost, participating in the union of the twelve tribes who, all of them, are true to their only possible Lord and king, Yeshua Ha Mashiach.

“This outpost is in many ways lonely.  I yearn to be near my brothers and fellow subjects of the king.  I yearn for the dust of the earthly Jerusalem.  I would love more than anything to find myself stationed in the Land of Promise — if it could be in response to the will of my king and, as always, in loyalty only to the rule of my king.  I could never give fealty to the Zionist entity which, I fear, plays Herod to the Papal Caesar.

 “I am  concerned that your program for the return of the ten tribes is not centered on the Messiah and is even organized very deliberately along lines of genetics.  The promise goes far beyond genetics.  What are we to make of Obed Melech, Ruth, Zipporah, Naaman and a host of others — even Nebuchadnezzar who ultimately knelt and praised Yahveh as his God.

“Zionism is the antithesis of true Judaism.  Who will rule your greater Israel?  Who will rule your union of the tribes?  Only the Messiah may rule.  But no one will be ruled by the Messiah but those who recognize him as Messiah.  The Jews reject his kingship. The Christians reject his kingship.  And the Muslims reject him.

“I suspect that Zionism is actually Rome’s Final Solution and that the conflagration to come will actually cost the lives of many who are in the land of promise in search of true covenant union with their God.

 “Yeshua said that when the Abomination that causes Desolation is in the holy place, flee to the mountains.  I believe that a precursor of the Abomination is now in the holy place.  The Dome of the Rock is an obscenity upon the Temple Mount, and most obscene is that there in the place of sacrifice, on the inside and the outside of that edifice, in the tile work, are numerous inscriptions devoted to the denial of the divinity of Yeshua Ha Mashiach.  Therefore it is not time to pretend that all is well in Jerusalem.  It is not time to take more land from the Palestinians and erect more Jewish homes.  It will soon be time to flee to the mountains, for the great battle surrounding the land of promise is soon to begin.  Only following the return of our Messiah in power and glory will it be time to take comfort in Jerusalem. 

“Please do not ally yourselves with the Muslims in denying the truth of our own king! our own Messiah who went to the cross, fulfilling the prophecies of Isaiah, of Jeremiah, of Zechariah, of Moses.  

“The goals of the Zionists have nothing in common with the goals of the God of Israel.  Do not expect glory to come from their machinations.  Do not expect the blessings of Yahveh upon them.  Yahveh will not bless any entity which artificially names itself “Israel” and ignores its Messiah. 

 “Dear O., I am compelled to speak out these things.  It would be wonderful to hear from you speaking just as openly the concerns of your heart, as I am sure that there is so much that I cannot see from here, and I would read it with the greatest interest.  No matter how far apart we are, our dialogue could mean a great deal to many people.  We share the hunger for Yahveh, our wonderful King.  We share the dream of the promises to Abraham.  We share the blessing and the burden of the whole covenant, even in its amplification into the new covenant as promised by Jeremiah and Ezekiel, the covenant transformation by which circumcision becomes circumcision of the heart through the agency of the Spirit of Yahveh cutting into our hearts.  

Yours,

Lawrence

O.responded to me within a matter of days, in a tone of renunciation. He classified my letter as pure “anti-Semitism.” He told me there are two kinds of people, those who are with Israel and those who are not.  He told me that I was one of those who are not.

 

iii

The truth is, there is another side which I am unable to reconcile with the views which I expressed to O.  It is simply this:  When I see Israel under attack I feel wounded in my own self.

However much their path has been distorted by Zionism, the people of Israel are my teachers, and they are the descendants of those who have given their lives for centuries to preserve the Torah and the culture of worship of Yahveh.

However much the land is being unfairly divided, it is the land upon which Yeshua shall once again walk, and it is the land where I will know him face to face and kneel at his feet.  However much I want to call attention to the arrogance of the Zionists, I am overcome by the arrogance of Islam.  Muslims are not ignorant of all that has transpired between the living God and the people whom he created, and yet they would pretend that the call of Mohammed supersedes the truth of Yahveh. [It has even become popular in Islam to deny that the Temple Mount was ever the home of Solomon’s Temple!]  However much the Zionists would like to define the right of a genetic group to the land, it is this land which shall someday be the home of people from every nation on earth.  As seen in the opening quotations,

Yahveh will have compassion on Jacob; once again he will choose Israel and will settle them in their own land.  Aliens will join them and unite with the house of Jacob.                                                                               Isaiah 14.1

I am just such an alien who swears fealty to the king of Israel.  I also am one of those mentioned by Zecharaiah,

This is what Yahveh Almighty says, “In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.’”    Zechariah 8.23                       

What am I to do?  If I run to Jerusalem, how long will it be before I and others are obeying the call of Yeshua to flee to the mountains?   It is not we who establish Jerusalem.  It is he who establishes the city. Our fates are inseparable from the city, but he must lead us.    

You who call on Yahveh, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. Isaiah 62.6,7

I believe that in this time of rapid change we must carry in our hearts the burden of Jerusalem and of the Land of our Promise.  For myself, at this moment, I feel compelled to call out to those who are putting their lives and their future in the hands of the Zionists and encourage them to swear fealty to no one but the Messiah of Israel, Yeshua Ha Mashiach.  His is the power, and his alone is the final victory:

“As for the ten horns you have seen, they are ten kings who have no royal power as yet, but receive royal authority for an hour along with the Beast; they are of one mind, and they confer their power and authority upon the Beast.  They shall wage war on the Lamb, but the Lamb will conquer them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings – the Lamb and the elect, the chosen, the faithful who are with him.”                                                                          Revelation 17.11-14

We must be still, study God’s word, and listen in our hearts for his voice of direction.
