The Abrahamic Covenant, by Dr. George B. Fletcher, Ch. 15, Part 2

Chapter XV
Part 2
World Revolution
     The second chapter of 2 Thessalonians is an amazing chapter of appalling horror and unspeakable glory. 0£ horror, because it speaks of the coming of a Man of Sin before Christ's Second Advent (vs. 3); of glory, because it speaks of the Second Coming of Christ, who shall destroy the Wicked One with the brightness of His coming (vs. 8. Of horror, because it speaks of the reprobate, from among both Jews and Gentiles, to whom shall be sent a strong delusion, and they be given up to all deceivableness of unrighteousness to believe a (the) lie (vss. 9-12); of glory, because it speaks of the elect, from among both Jews and Gentiles, for whom the apostle give􀂀 thanks and for whose comfort and consolation he prays (vss. 13-17). This chapter furnishes one of the supposed proof texts for the pre-tribulation rapture theory, namely, verses 6 and 7. The Scofield Reference Bible in a footnote on this chapter under the heading "The Order of Events" says:
     "... (3) The removal of that which restrains the mystery of
     lawlessness (vss. 6,7). The restrainer is a person -- 'he', and
     since a 'mystery.' always implies a supernatural element
     (Matt. 13;11, note), this Person can be no other than the Holy
     Spirit in the Church, to be 'taken out of the way' (vs. 7;
     l Thess. 4:14-17)."
     This interpretation we believe to be erroneous. C.F. Hogg and W. E. Vine (ardent premillennialists) in their Exegetical and Expository Notes On First and Second Thess­alonians say concerning this theory, that, --
     "It is without support in other parts of the New Testament ...
     The suggestion seems to be of quite modern origin, there is
     apparently, no trace of it in early writings on the subject ...
     The word until he be taken' in 2 Thess. 2:7 translating the
     Greek word 'GINOMAI' literally means, 'until he, or it
     become'; the tense is momentary. The word 'out of the way'
     translating the Greek "EK MESOU', literally means 'out of
     the midst.' "
They offer a paraphrase:
     "Only (there is) a restrainer now (who will restrain) until out
     of the midst (of the human race) there come to be, and then
     (come} to be revealed, the Lawless One. Or thus: -- "Only
     (there is) a restrainer now who will restrain until it, i.e.,
     lawlessness, show itself (as at 1 Thess. 1:5) out of the midst,
     (no longer an influence working in secret but a character­istic
     of the age), and then shall be revealed the Lawless One. "
     Hogg and Vine make this further enlightening comment that the restraining power is Gentile Dominion, which con­tinues until the "times of the Gentiles be fulfilled" (Luke 21:24), existing authorities being ordained to act in restraint of lawlessness {Rom. 13:1-7; 1 Pet. 2:13-17).
     ''When the appointed days of Gentile Dominion have run
     their course (Luke 21:24) this restraint will cease, and the
     individual, probably a Jew, see Daniel 11:37, sufficiently
     gifted to recognize the opportunity and to seize it, will
     assert a personal ascendancy over the law, and finally
     'raising the standard of ATHEISTIC PANTEISM will
     proclaim him­self the INCARNATION OF THE ABSOLUTE,'
     and so become the object of their worship".
     This rapture of the Church before a seven year period of tribulation is not found in this scripture. This pass­age - 2 Thess. 2:6, 7 -- is teaching that before Christ returns there shall come first a great falling away (vs.3) to be followed by a universal breakup of constituted law and order among the nations, and upon the resulting ruin, chaos, and confusion there will develop something out of the midst which will be "after the working of Satan," with all deceivableness of unrighteousness (vss. 6-10). That which develops "out of the midst" (not something taken away) will be some kind of "one world government" which the Communist One World conspirators hope will be realized through the United Nations Organization or some similar organization. This one world government will be of such a Satanic, supernatural nature all earth dwellers shall be deceived and wonder after it, except the elect whose names are written in the book of life (Rev. 13:3, 8).
     2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12 goes on to reveal that, be­cause men receive not the truth in the love of it, God shall send them strong delusion (a working of error), that they should believe a (lit., "the") lie, (with specific reference to the lie of 2 Thess. 2:4, viz. that man is God; compare with Gen. 3:5; Rom. 1:25; John 8:44); that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. We are witnessing in our day the fulfillment of this prophecy of universal lawlessness. We are witnessing the Communist plan for universally rubbing out all national, religious, cultural, and racial lines and submerging the world in a Lawless, formless, characterless chaos for easy domination. To say that there is still another, more grandiose plan beyond that for which the Communist-Socialist mach ine was set up -- the last and final world government that shall ascend out of the bottomless pit and go into perdition (Rev. 17: 8,11) -- is indeed to' challenge the credulity of most of us, especially of us Anglo-Saxons who are too busy with ou#; humdrum routines to pull the propaganda curtain aside and see the giant hiding there. That giant is political ZIONISM dedicated to the establishment of one. vast world power kingdom, with the Jews as the ruling race. Its pro­gram is set forth in detail in The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, and in the Books of the Talmud.
     There is only one philosophy, or body of teaching in the whole world today that has come down in unbroken line from ancient Babylon, and that is the Jewish Babylonian Talmud. The Talmud is a many volume compilation of Jewish history and traditions and the· teachings of ancient Rabbis. One of its most important elements consists in interpre­tations of the Law of Moses by Rabbis over a period of centuries, in legal decision after legal decision. The Encyclopedia Britannica (p. 771, Vol. 21, 1949 edition) says: "The Talmud is still the authoritative and practical guide of the great mass of the Jews," still not all the Rabbis accept the Talmud, with its glorification of secrecy, and cunning, and its incitation of blood-letting and conquest. Jews claim their religion is based upon the Law of Moses, but Talmudic Professor Louis Finkelstein wrote in The Pharisees, published in Philadelphia, Pa., by the Jewish Publication Society of America, in 1946:
     became Medieval Rabbinism, and Medieval Rabbinism
     became Modern Rabbinism. But throughout these
     changes of name, inevitable adaptation of custom, and
     adjustment of Law, THE SPIRIT OF THE ANCIENT
     The book of Traditions, which is the Talmud, is the only book that Jesus our Lord did specifically condemn (Mark 7:13). The apostle Paul drew attention to the erroneous teachings of the Rabbis, and their rulers, because "they knew Him not nor yet THE VOICE OF THE PROPHETS, which are read every Sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in con­demning Him" (Acts. 13: 27).
     The authorship of the Protocols has been a debatable question, but are reported to have been adopted at an International Conference of Jewish Rabbis and Elders. They were published by Professor Sergyei Nilus of Russia in 1905 and translated into English and published by Victor Marsden, correspondent of The Morning Post (London). The copy of the original at the British Museum bears the stamp of August 10, 1906. The Jews claim that the pro­tocols are spurious and cite as evidence of that fact the judgment of the trial court at Berne, Switzerland, which was a court of their own selection and obviously biased. The trial court did sustain their contention, but the case was appealed, and reversed by the appellate court. The final judgment acquitted the defendants of the charge or libeling the Jews, by the publication and distribution of the Protocols, and inferentially established their authenticity. It is explicitly stated that the end in view is to subjugate all governments to their super­-government, and the Jewish super-government is to be an autocracy with a Jewish Sovereign at its head. The Elders of Zion speak of the present era which they claim to have established as a "transition period" which had to be brought about before the final world dictatorship can be proclaimed. All writings by communists, socialists, inter­nationalists, and one worlders agree that this is but a "transition period." During this period governments will be made to crumble and the people will become so distrustful of their own national governmental systems that they will cry out for a world government which will ensure peace and security, even at the cost of their liberties and free­doms. When that time comes, the United States is to be converted into a world government in fact, with dictatorial powers vested in an "Elite" and -- if the "Elders of Zion" have their way -- the "Elite" will govern through a man selected by them, and enthroned as a "King sitting on the Throne of David."
     Protocol XVII:4 - "The King of the Jews will be the real Pope
     of the Universe, the patriarch of the international Church."
     From Serge Nilus's "Introduction to the Protocols" we quote paragraph 7, which briefly summarizes one of the means by which this world domination is to be achieved

     "7. The destruction of the social and economic structure of
     Christian states will also be brought about by the destruction
     of industrial prosperity, through speculation and constant
     strikes, 'throwing masses of workmen out of employment,
     artificially raising wages, thus increasing the cost of the
     necessaries of life, and finally by bringing about a general
     economic crisis and the disorganization of financial systems.
     The financial strength of the various non-Jewish states will
     also be undermined by causing them to over-burden them-
     selves with foreign and national loans on an ever-increasing
     scale, which will ultimately lead to bankruptcy."
     We believe that "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" whatever particular children of Satan were inspired to write them -- are the precise , historically authen­ticated plan of the Anti-Christ to overcome the world, make all, "both small and-great, rich and poor, bond and free" worship the Beast Rev. 13:16). Thus will be ful­filled the prophecy of the Apostle Paul as given in 2 Thess. 2:3, 4, namely, that the "son of perdition who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped;" will as God sit in the temple of God, "showing himself that he is God." The statement of Henry Ford given in an interview published in the New York Times of February 17, 1921 is startlingly true today as is evident to anyone reading the Protocols and observing the present world situation.
     "The only statement I care to make about the Pro­tocols is
     that they fit in with what is going on. They are sixteen
     years old, and they have fitted the world situation up to this
     time. They fit it now."
     In further confirmation a book of 118 pages, entitled The Jewish Utopia by Michael Rigger outlines the authentic and complete plan of the Zionists for world domination. The Jewish Utopia is a compilation, the sum total of the prophecies, teachings, plans, and interpretations of the foremost Rabbis and Jewish tribal leaders of the past 2500 years -- since the time of the Oral Law and the beginning of the Babylonian Talmud, with its double standard for Jews and non-Jews, and its nationalistic, militant interpretation of the Torah (the first five books 0£ the Old Testament). The regard in which The Jewish Utopia is held by the Rabbinate may be surmised from the printed Texas University Library seal inside the front cover, which says the book was "Presented by the Kallah of Texas Rabbis, 193911 to The Abraham I Schechter Collection of Hebraica and Judaica" of the University Library.
     The Utopia cherished by the Talmudic Jews is an ultimate "new social order," which, it would seem, the Zionists hope to establish after they have used Socialism, Communism, Fabian Socialism, and possibly a third world war to gain their ends. Jewish encyclopedias and other authoritative writings likewise present Socialism in a friendly light, or make outright boasts to reconstruct the world (compare Psa. 2:1-3). Sizeable Socialist organizations and movements today are of Jewish origin, and/or Jewish management. On the first day of May in 1776 in Munich, Germany, an organization called the Illuminati was launched by a group of atheists and free thinkers under the leadership of the Jew, Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt was a cunning human devil whose dream in life was to fulfill the program laid down in Babylonia of old, of placing the whole world under one government. To accomplish this, Weishaupt set forth the following pro­grams: Abolition of all governments, abolition of in­heritance, abolition of private property, abolition of patriotism, abolition of family, and abolition of religion. These six plans by which he had proposed to destroy all orderly society have remained a part of the Communist program until this day. Weishaupt's program soon found an important place in the thinking of a young Jewish boy by the name of Karl Marx. Together with a friend of his, Fredrik Engels, they worked out the theory and tactics of revolutionary proletariann socialism, otherwise known as Communism. Communism is a modern version of the Jewish world state which was dreamed of by their fathers in Baby­lon five centuries before the birth of Christ. Evidently Socialism like its twin Communism, is largely to be a temporary vehicle, for the destruction of race, nations, and conquest of private property. Norman Thomas, six times a candidate for President of the United States on the Socialist party ticket said, "The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name of Liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation." Socialism is a process through which a capitalistic, free­-enterprise system can be used to siphon off its own economy and liberties and be brought over to a U.S.S.A.- a United States of Soviet America. BASICALLY, AND BY PRINCIPLE, Socialism and Communism ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. They are ideological brothers. They both believe in State ownership of the means of production and distribution. One is simply the soft sell, and the other the hard sell - one by the ballot, the other by bullets - one by evolution and the other by revolution. Socialism is like a man with cancer. He goes on fairly comfortable for years and suddenly wakes up with a sore side. He goes to the doctor and is sent to the hospital and an exploratory operation is performed. It is .found that he is literally alive with cancer. They sew him up, and send him home, and within a few months he dies. Socialism, as is being practiced in America, has already silently crept into the very vitals of the body politic, and only God knows whether we, through our free-enterprise system, still have the strength to throw off the cancer of Socialistic Communism and live. According to The Jewish Utopia its leaders will scorn the doctrine of equality which they now so diligently spread among us after the Jewish-Socialist­Comrnunist machine seizes the power. Christianity will be suppressed, forgotten or so infiltrated and changed as to remain only a name, its adherents actually worshipping the Torah and Babylonian Talmud.
     "Israel will be a living testimony to the absolute unity of
     God. Consequently, IN THE IDEAL ERA, there will be
     no people who will believe in the division of the Godhead
     into two or more parts, or persons. Only those peoples who
     believe in one God will survive in the ideal world." (The
     Jewish Utopia).
     This is a repudiation of the doctrine of the Trinity traditionally held by Christians and substitutes the Unitarian concept in its place. There will be no worship of Christ as the Son of God. This world-wide apostasy has gone so far that the National Council of Churches in America, claiming to represent about three-fourths of all Protestants in America, has reached an agreement with the American Jewish Committee whereby that Jewish nationalist power machine supplies a s1;􀁟am of "educational" films and literature to these Christian denominations, works with the National Council staff' in preparing Sunday School and Church literature, and has the privilege .of censoring any other NCC "Christian" literature (American Jewish Committee Re_p9rt, 1953). In the American Jewish Committee's pub­lication called the Committee Reporter in the summer of 1956·there was outlined the methods it had developed :for destroying Christmas observances in American schools.
Thus, the present Zionist and Communist-Socialist programs preaching brotherhood, Socialism, UNESCO, the Genocide Pact, the so-called covenant of Human Rights, the glorification of the United Nations, identify them­selves as part of the program of Jewish nationalism using Socialism and Communism to move us toward the goal of a one world government. In confirmation of the above view­point concerning "the rest were blinded" (Rom. 11:7), the following interesting excerpt is taken from a letter purported to have been written to Karl Marx by his fellow Jew, Baruch Levy, as quoted in La Revue de Paris, June 1, 1928, p. 574:
     "The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will
     attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the
     abolition of frontiers, by the annihilation of monarchy which
     has always been the support of individ­ualism, and by the
     establishment of a world re­public in which the Jews wi11 every-
     where exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this new world
     order the children of Israel, who are scattered over the world,
     will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition; and
     this will more particularly be the case if they succeed in getting
     the working masses under their control. The governments of the
     different peoples forming the world republic will, through the
     victory of the Proletariat, fall without difficulty into the hands of
     the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish
     private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of
     the State. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in
     which it is said, that when the Messianic time has come, the Jews
     will have the property or the whole world in their hands."
     Or again, another quote from Feodor Dostievsky, famous Russian author and philosopher, writing in 1880 -
     "It is the Jew alone with his bank, who is the master and who
     rules all Europe ... The Jew with his bank is the master of
     Education, of civiliza­tion, of Socialism above all, by means of
     which the Jew is going to tear up Christianity by the roots and
     destroy its civilization. And when nothing but anarchy remains,
     the Jew will put himself at the head of all. For while propagating
     Socialism among a11 the Nations, the Jews will remain united
     among themselves; and when the wealth of Europe is dissipated,
     the Jew's Bank will remain."
     We recapitulate what we have said in this chapter so far: (1) The apostle Paul divides the Jews into two classes: "The election of grace," and "the rest (that) were blinded" (Rom. 11:7). (2) Within the reprobate portion of the nation there is a hard, radical, revol­utionary core of conspirators who, together with other international Bankers, aim at a world-wide overthrow of civilization, and upon its ruin to build a super-Jewish world state. (3) The channel of this conspiracy may possibly be political Zionism in the light of the Pro­tocols, Rabbinical writings, the Talmud, The Jewish Utopia, and various reports of the American Jewish Committee. (4) The Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul has re­vealed that the Second Coming of Christ will be preached by a two-pronged series of events: (a) A great falling away; and (b) a breakup of constituted authority of law and order among the nations, -- a general universal reign of lawlessness in all areas of life, out of the midst of which will develop a world government of some kind, and if the leaders of Zion -- the rest that are blinded - have their way, it will be Jewish. (5) This conspiracy of world domination and enslavement of the peoples of earth with the annihilation of all religion, especially the Christian faith, will almost succeed in totally breaking the "power of the holy people" (Daniel 12:7) -­not Jews, but saints, true believers on the Lord Jesus Christ, whether Jew or Gentile. (6) The world, given up to a strong delusion, or working of error to believe THE LIE, will wonder after the beast (the symbol of a univer­sal, total anti-Christian world power embodied in a One World Government, whose head will be the Man of Sin), and worship him, except the election of grace whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life (compare Matt. 4:8-10; Rev. 13:8). (7) At the peak of almost total success in destroying all faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and liquidating all who profess it, the Lord Jesus Christ will be revealed from heaven, and consume the Wicked One with the spirit of His mouth and destroy the total kingdom of darkness with the brightness of His coming, and that forever. Seeing this people the Jews, together with the Gentiles, are blinded by the god of this world, namely Satan (2 Cor. 4:4), let all true Christians pray most earnestly for their salvation and faithfully in compassion and love preach the gospel to both Jew and Gentile that they might be saved (Rom. 10:1-3. 12, 13). Romans 10:21 declares -- "But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobed­ient and gainsaying people." Christ's arms of mercy are extended to them still, even as when here in the days of His flesh He said, "0 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and YE WOULD NOT" (Matt. 23:37). "I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, HIM YE WILL RECEIVE" (John 5:43) .
