CSB (John 16:33) 33 I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the (Satan’s) world.”
In part 1 we talked about our adversary, Satan, and who he is.
Who the children of Satan are and how to recognize the children of Satan.
And we have spoken about the children of the kingdom, the faithful Christians.
Satan is the great deceiver of all people, just as the children of Satan want to mislead us:
CSB (2 Corinthians 11: 14-15) 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself is disguised as an angel of light. 15 So it is no great thing if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their destiny will be according to their works.
The great deceiver ultimately wants to humiliate God (YHWH) by misleading all people.
Protect yourself with the weapons of faith (2 Cor. 10: 4) to be able staying faithfully under tribulation:
CSB (Proverbs 27:11) 11 Be wise, my son, and bring my heart joy, so that I can answer anyone who taunts me.
Theme; Judaism with its traditions.
What is the reason we are going to discuss Judaism so thoroughly?
Because Judaism occupies a much more powerful place in world affairs, as many Christians may realize. And in the very last days that will increase overwhelmingly.
The traditions in the Mishnah and the Talmud
In Jesus’ days there were various Jewish sects with different beliefs, such as the Pharisees, Sadducee’s, Zealots and Essenes.
The Pharisees regarded the entire Old Testament, the Tanakh, as inspired by God.
And along the written Torah (the 5 books of Moses) they also considered the oral Torah, the oral traditions, as inspired by God to Moses.
The Pharisees and Scribes tried to impress Jesus with their traditions:
CSB (Mark 7: 5-9,13) 5 Then the Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, “Why don’t Your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders, instead of eating bread with ritually unclean hands?” 6 He answered them, “Isaiah prophesied correctly about you hypocrites, as it is written: These people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. 7 They worship Me in vain, teaching as doctrines the commands of men. 8 Disregarding the command of God, you keep the tradition of men.” 9 He also said to them, “You completely invalidate God’s command in order to maintain your tradition!….13 You revoke God’s word by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many other similar things.”
Jesus didn’t want anything to do with their oral traditions. They make God’s word powerless.
The Babylonian Talmud is the most extensive and used the most.
It goes without saying that Jesus also didn’t want anything to do with the traditions in the Talmud. Jesus did not spare the Scribes and Pharisees to denounce their behavior:
NKJV (Matthew 23: 12-13) 12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. 13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
NKJV (Matthew 23: 27,33) 27 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness…. 33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?
Jesus was clear, the Scribes and Pharisees behaved like children of Satan.
Already long, the Jews aren’t God’s people anymore
With Abraham and his descendants, God had chosen a people for His Holy name at the time:
NKJV (Deuteronomy 28:10) 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.
Years later, the Jewish people (the people of God at the time) were told that the Messiah would be a prophet like Moses:
NKJV (Deuteronomy 18:15) 15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear….
Unfortunately, the Jewish spiritual leaders did not accept the promised Messiah when Jesus appeared to them. They were determined to kill Him:
NKJV (John 11: 47, 53) 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, “What shall we do? For this Man works many signs…. 53 Then, from that day on, they plotted to put Him to death.
NKJV (Luke 19: 41-42) 41 Now as He drew near, He saw the city (Jerusalem) and wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.
The prophet Isaiah already prophesied about deception by the Jewish leaders:
CSB (Isaiah 3:12) 12 ….My people, your leaders mislead you; they confuse the direction of your paths.
The privileged position for the Jews as God’s people came to an end 3.5 years after Jesus’ resurrection (see Daniel 9:27). Christians now form God’s people:
CSB (Acts 15: 14) 14 Simeon has reported how God first intervened to take from the Gentiles a people for His name. (see also Luke 2: 25-32)
CSB (Romans 9: 24-26) 24 on us whom He also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? 25 As He also says in Hosea: I will call “Not-My-People,” “My-People,” and she who is “Unloved,” “Beloved.” 26 And it will be in the place where they were told, you are not My people, there they will be called sons of the living God.
The Christians out of the Jews and out of the Gentiles have believed the truth of God’s Son and applied it in their lives.
The different Jewish movements
Judaism is a multicolored collection of movements and beliefs.
Jews believe in one God, that the Jewish people is the chosen people and in the coming of the Messiah.
The Sephardic Jews
A number of Jews moved from Israel to the countries with which they traded, such as Spain.
Also, after the destruction of the 2nd temple in 70 AD by the Romans, many Jews left Israel. Sephardic Jews are the descendants of Jews who have lived in Spain and Portugal for generations and played a role in banking, commerce and science.
In 1492, the Sephardic Jews in Spain were forced to convert to Christianity. Jews who adhere to Judaism while presenting a different faith to the outside world, are called crypto Jews.

The Ashkenazim Jews
According to researchers, the Chazars or Khazars were a Turkish nomad people.
Khazaria was an empire full of Babylonian occult idolatry, worship of Satan.
In the year 740 AD, the pagan Khazar kingdom converted to Judaism.
(The Thirteenth Tribe: The Khazar Empire and its Heritage by Arthur Koestler)
In the 13th century, the surrounding countries attacked them and they fled to the whole of Eastern Europe. They are called the Ashkenazim Jews (Ashkenaz was the grandson of Japheth). They are Jews by assumption, not by descent, according to an Israeli scientist: https://www.darkmoon.me/2013/top-israeli-scientist-says-ashkenazi-jews-came-from-khazaria-not-palestine/
This is also confirmed by Dr. Eran Elhaik, a geneticist (Genome Biology and Evolution): https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2013-01/oup-nss011413.php
Professor AM Poliak of the University of Tel Aviv stated: “The vast majority of world Judaism comes from the Khazar Jews.” (+/- 90%)
Kabbalah and the Zohar
From the 2nd century on, the word kabbalah referred to received traditions in the Talmud, relating to the oral law.
It is an esoteric (for initiates only) intended method in Jewish mysticism.
The kabbalah mainly concerns mystical or hidden secrets.
The most important book of the kabbalah is the Zohar.
The Zohar (appearance, brilliance) is a collection of books with very cryptic and much erotic language and deals with the mystical tradition.
Rabbis applied an intense form of meditation (such as transcendental meditation) and by repeating the mantra’s they made their heads empty and thus opened the door for demons.
They wanted to get to know God’s thoughts, but learned the thoughts of demons with their lies, mixed with truths. Many rabbis went to Safed (Galilee-Israel). According to them, the Messiah would appear there as first. Rabbi Isaac Luria, according to his own words, saw hallucinations during the meditation and preached the non-Christian reincarnation.
Rabbis in Judaism
The title ‘rabbi’ is mentioned for the first time in the Mishna and the Talmud.
After the destruction of the second temple in AD 70, it is rabbinic Judaism that became the successor of Judaism of the Pharisees.
According to tradition, Moses was the first rabbi and from the 2nd century AD, Rabbi was an official title. His main activities are that of counselor on traditions, teacher and interpretation of Jewish law.
From the 2nd century AD until around the 18th century AD, Jewish communities were under pressure from their rabbis. They were strictly closed societies.
Rabbinical courts imposed fines, flogging, imprisonment, and even death by stoning according to the Talmud.
With their Kabbalistic mystical doctrines that stem from Babylonian occultism, they certainly do not represent the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The aim of Zionism was to found a Jewish nation in Palestine. The Balfour declaration was a letter written in 1917 by British Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour to Lionel Walter Rothschild, in which the British government expressed support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
A number of spiritual leaders from the various ultra-orthodox movements believe that only the Messiah should establish such a homeland. Especially within Hasidic Judaism there are many movements that strongly oppose Zionism.
They are afraid that their messiah will not come as long as there is a Jewish state.
Those who are against Zionism do not automatically have to be anti-Semitic. Semitism refers to Sem, one of Noah’s three sons. This therefore mainly concerns a language group.
“Of the Jewish population, about one third are religious and two thirds are secular, many of whom are” traditional “, indicating a strong affinity with Orthodox Judaism without leading a fully religious life.” (source Wikipedia)
Chabad and the laws of Noah
Hasidic Judaism is an ultra-orthodox division within Judaism and originates in Eastern Europe. Hasidic Judaism consists of dozens of Hasidic movements.
Noahides, followers of the seven Noahide laws, are members of a new ultra-orthodox Hasidic religion.
Chabad-Lubavitch is one of the best-known ultra-orthodox Jewish Hasidic movements.
In 1983, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, leader of the Lubavitch movement, urged his followers to actively participate in activities to inform non-Jews about Noah’s seven laws.
Rabbi Schneerson’s views:
“The body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of [members] of all nations of the world…. An even greater difference exists in regard to the soul. Two contrary types of soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.”
The first international Noahide congress in Jerusalem was July 17-21, 2016.

The Noahide laws (Noah’s laws) are seven ancient laws that Jewish Rabbis see as the basis of civilized society. They represent the ‘absolute minimum’ for all people, including non-Jews or Gentiles. They are called the Noahide laws because it is believed (according to the Talmud) that they were given to the children of Noah after the flood.
Non-Jews who comply with the laws of Moses are called righteous Gentiles by them.
Noah’s laws are certainly not Biblical laws given to Noah. (In Gen. 9: 1-7 God’s instructions are given to Noah and his sons)
According to the Talmud, these are the laws of Noah:
- Belief in God: He who created everything. There is none besides Him and no one should turn away from Him.
- Blessing Hashem (God, literally ‘the name’): Respecting the Creator and the sages who are familiar with His Torah, and respecting the places of worship where the Torah is learned and prayers are recited to him. It is forbidden, God forbid, to speak harshly against them or to curse them.
- Stealing: The preservation of the rights of others to property and honor and body and not to desire to take anything belonging to others that is not for sale.
- Killing: Do not shorten the lives of people, including the lives of the terminally ill. The opposite is also true; to invest efforts to heal diseases and maintain health.
- Have mercy on creatures: Not to be cruel to animals. One of the most forbidden acts is eating the organ or limb from a live animal. The animal must first be killed in a way that is less distressing such as cutting the neck.
- Prohibition of prostitution: The mitzvah (Bible commandment) to build a proper family life. It is a severe prohibition to commit adultery with a married woman. It is also forbidden to perform a same-sex marriage. Also forbidden is sexual intercourse with animals and homosexuality.
- Laws: To establish courts to judge justice and to direct society and obey the orders and decisions of the courts. (according to them Gen. 18:19)
According to Jewish tradition, the first six of these seven laws were given to Adam in the Garden of Eden (the law not to eat living animals is questionable, since Adam did not eat animals (Gen. 2: 16-17, 3: 17-19). The 7th law was according to them added, during God’s covenant with Noah.
Anyone who breaks any of these laws is subject to the death penalty by beheading (Talmud tract Sanhedrin 57a).
Idem; “The Encyclopedia Judaica, 1192” … violation of any one of the seven laws subjects the Noahide to capital punishment by decapitation. “
If we go back to what Jesus experienced during his preaching:
NKJV (John 5:18) 18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.
The Jewish leaders wanted to kill Jesus because He, as the Son of God, made himself equal to God. And what if Christians are asked the following question by the Sanhedrin:
Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and is the promised Messiah?
Your answer will most likely be: Yes, I believe that.
That Christian response is in two ways in violation with ‘the laws of Noah’;
1 Jesus is the Son of God – (law 1) 2 Jesus is the promised Messiah – (law 2)
Jesus said, we can expect global troubles:
NKJV (Mark 13: 8) 8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.
In 1991, both houses of Congress in the US approved a bill signed by President George HW Bush, which states that the Noachide laws are founded upon “the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society… on which our great nation was founded ” (H.J.RES.104.ENR).
Ronald Reagan George W. Bush
Barack Obama Donald Trump
Now, there is freedom of religion in the US, but in a state of emergency or martial law, other laws apply. Then such a Noahide law can become fully effective. That will be the beginning of the great religious persecution, not only through Islam with its own God and expected Messiah, but also through Judaism:
NKJV (Revelation 20: 4) 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands….
Herewith, the Talmud calls for the death penalty for pagans who break the Noahide laws.
It is the rabbis’ plan to gain power over the non-Jews via the unscriptural laws of Noah, to rule the world with the non-Jews in slavery.
They want to combine all Abrahamic beliefs, Islam, Judaism and the Christians (or the ones who sometimes declare to be). For Christians, Jesus is without a doubt the promised Messiah:
CSB (John 4: 25-26) 25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will explain everything to us.” 26 “I am [He],” Jesus told her, “the One speaking to you.”
Also Noah’s seventh law has major consequences.
The UN will have to be relocated to Jerusalem in a different form, as will the International Court of Justice in The Hague, which they believe should be relocated to Jerusalem.
Rabbi Dov Stein, Secretary of the Sanhedrin, described the urgent need to replace the United Nations:
‘The United Nations has failed in its mandate by rejecting God as the creator and the Noahide Laws common to all of mankind.’
The Rabbis say that the Jewish people will bring peace, that they become the place of worship and where judgments will be made. As the chosen people, they now want to be in control of the goyim (the Gentiles). They get their ideas from the following Scriptures:
CSB (Isaiah 2: 3-4) 3 and many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us about His ways so that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction will go out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 4 He will settle disputes among the nations and provide arbitration for many peoples. They will turn their swords into plows and their spears into pruning knives. Nations will not take up the sword against [other] nations, and they will never again train for war.
CSB (Isaiah 61: 5-6) 5 Strangers will stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners will be your plowmen and vinedressers. 6 But you will be called the Lord’s priests; they will speak of you as ministers of our God; you will eat the wealth of the nations, and you will boast in their riches.
Unfortunately, both parts are written for the new earth, for God’s kingdom. A kingdom led by the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ with the saints as priests and kings.
That Jews will reign as kings and priests will therefore happen, but not with them, but with the saints of the Jews together with the saints of the Gentiles. There are already many Noahides worldwide, mostly former Christians who have fallen back to Talmud Judaism:
NKJV (2 Peter 2: 1) 1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
Judaism as a theocracy with the expectation of their Messiah
The promised Messiah was very clearly foretold by the Jews in Isaiah and Daniel:
NKJV (Isaiah 9: 6) 6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
NKJV (Daniel 7: 13-14) 13 “I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, And they brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.
NKJV (Daniel 9:25) 25 “Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;….
However, the Rabbis (and also the Imams) are still awaiting their own Messiah.
For Christians, everything is based on faith in the Christ. We can take an example of the faith of a Roman centurion, a man under authority, in Capernaum:
MKJV (Matthew 8: 6-8,10-12) 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” 7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed….. 10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! 11 And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
The Jews were the sons of the Kingdom, but many unfortunately showed little faith in Jesus’ words, mostly out of fear of the Jewish leaders. Be never afraid of people:
NKJV (Matthew 10:28) 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
In the following article; Frankism, Jews spread around the world as businessmen and owners of (central) banks, the small group of super-rich on earth and what this small group of super-rich are managing, what is their agenda.
