“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9
Evangelicals consistently misidentify the synagogue of Satan as “Israel,” underscoring one of the most salient errors of Protestantism—that every dyslexic with a censored/abridged/bowdlerized “bible” who neither has at hand nor understands the original texts, who fails to understand what is literal, what is rhetorical, and what is allegorical, imagines himself his own little pope. The Hagee-ites and other Judaizers don’t understand—don’t want to understand—that the Old Law is dead and there is a New Chosen People.
The “synagogue of Satan” (Apocalypse 2:9; 3:9) was instrumental in the development of the Scofield Reference Bible that forms Zionist dispensationalism. The children of the Father of Lies and Murder want to trick today's Chosen People into believing that prophesies of return from the Captivities, prophesies of Antiochus and the Maccabees, and prophesies of Jesus Christ's First Coming instead apply to the End Times and the synagogue of Satan's project in the Middle East.
The synagogue of Satan instigated and abetted all the major heresies, including Protestantism and Islam. Protestants returned the “favor” by instigating and abetting Zionism. In the 16th century, after Henry VIII’s break from the Church a lapsed Anglican clergyman Francis Kett encouraged his followers to go to Palestine because Jesus was “gathering his people in Jerusalem in his owne person.” Kett’s rabid anti-Catholicism remains one of the most enduring tenets of “Christian” Zionism. Protestant “Good Queen Bess” Elizabeth I eventually burned Kett at the stake, but English Puritans continued to foster bizarre beliefs about the lost tribes of Israel, an obsession that they imported to the Netherlands and then to America. John Winthrop of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, then John Mather, his son Increase Mather, and grandson Cotton Mather proselytized a proto-Zionism. Cotton Mather promoted the 17th century “messiah” Zabbatai Zevi until Zevi apostatized into, of all things, Islam of the Ottoman Empire. Shocked into recognizing his own gross errors, Cotton Mather recanted his Judaic obsessions shortly before his death, but others continued to run with the same exegetical errors.
The world recognized the humiliating failure of the proto-Zionist “messiah,” yet shameless Protestants still proselytized proto-Zionist rhetoric: British travel entrepreneur Thomas Cook, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitfield, and others. In 1793 a former British Royal Navy officer, Richard Brothers, proclaimed himself “Prince of the Hebrews.” In 1814, a 64-year-old “prophetess” Joanna Southcott announced that she was the woman of Apocalypse chapter 12 and that she was pregnant with the new “messiah.” She died without child a few weeks after the anticipated birth. One of Queen Victoria’s Prime Ministers, Lord Palmerston, became the first significant crusader for returning “Jews” to Palestine. In his 1853 letter to then-Prime Minister Aberdeen Shaftesbury, Palmerston wrote one of the most enduring deceits of Zionism. Against overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Palmerston penned that Greater Syria was “a country without a nation” in need of a “nation without a country.” The claim of “British Israel” fanned the flames of global British Imperialism by the “chosen” and led to the infamous Balfour Declaration.
In America, the Puritans were followed by a succession of Zionists, most known among them John Nelson Darby of “dispensationalism” and its Zionism, “rapture,” and other heresies. What irony that Jewish-spawned Protestantism itself spawned Zionism long before any “Jews” adopted the heresy. Eventually, “Jews” like Theodor Herzl and Samuel Untermeyer adopted Zionism and they, in turn, adopted and financed the ex-convict Cyrus Scofield who wrote his Scofield Reference Bible, a farce that has seduced a century of evangelicals and other maniacal “Christian” Zionists.
“As a young con-artist in Kansas after the Civil War, he met up with John J. Ingalls, an aging Jewish lawyer who had been sent to Atchison by the ‘Secret Six’ some thirty years before to work the Abolitionist cause. Pulling strings both in Kansas and with his compatriots back east, Ingalls assisted Scofield in gaining admission to the Bar, and procured his appointment as Federal Attorney for Kansas. Ingalls and Scofield became partners in a railroad scam which led to Cyrus serving time for criminal forgery. While he was in prison, Cyrus Ingerson Scofield began studying the philosophy of John Darby, pioneer of the Plymouth Brethren movement and the ‘any moment now’ rapture doctrine.
“Upon his release from prison for forgery, Scofield deserted his first wife, Leonteen Carry Scofield (a Catholic), and his two daughters Abigail and Helen, and he took as his mistress a young girl from the St. Louis Flower Mission. He later abandoned her for Hettie Hall von Wartz, whom he eventually married. Following his Illuminati connections to New York, he settled in at the Lotus Club, which he listed as his residence for the next twenty years.”
It was in New York that Scofield presented his ideas for a new Judeo-Protestant “Bible” concordance, and was taken under the wing of Samuel Untermeyer, who later became chairman of the American Jewish Committee, president of the American League of Jewish Patriots, and chairman of the Non-sectarian Anti-Nazi League, the same Samuel Untermeyer who started World War 2 in his 1933 declaration of war on behalf of World Jewry against Germany.
Untermeyer introduced Scofield to numerous Zionist and socialist leaders, including Samuel Gompers, Fiorello LaGuardia, Bernard Baruch and Jacob Schiff. These were the people who financed Scofield’s research trips to Oxford and arranged the publication and distribution of his Concordance.
We have seen a succession of Protestant showmen who have prostituted the Gospel of the Beatitudes for “another gospel” (2 Corinthians 11:14) of genocide, genocide even of Palestinian Christians. Not satisfied by Jesus’ Sacrifice on Calvary, “Christian” Zionist false prophets with their private interpretations work for the return of animal sacrifices in a third temple, promoting the Temple Institute, the Temple Mount Faithful Movement, and the “cattlemen of the Apocalypse,” more gentile profiteers who hope to provide an unblemished sacrificial red heifer, while foolishly expecting to be “raptured” and exempt from all the horrors of the Anti-Christ whose coming they cheer—many of them profiting far more than Judas in their betrayal of Our Lord. By their political activism and against Matthew 24:36, malignant “Christian” Zionists presume to advance the hour of His Second Coming.
“But the prophet, who being corrupted with pride, shall speak in my name things that I did not command him to say, or in the name of strange gods, shall be slain.”
