One of the most important passages in Scripture is Daniel 2.
The corruption of King Solomon’s rule, followed by the foolishness of his successor son, Rehoboam caused a civil war which split the nation of Israel into a Northern Kingdom (“Israel”) and a Southern Kingdom (“Judah”). Judah maintained Jerusalem as its capital and Israel adopted Samaria as its capital.
Both fell under God’s Judgment for apostacy. Both received Prophets who warned them.
In both cases, the Prophets sent by God were ridiculed, persecuted, punished, imprisoned and sometimes killed.
Between 732 and 740 B.C.1, the Kingdom of Assyria began a 20-year conquest of the Northern Kingdom of Israel.
A century later, the Southern Kingdom fell.
In 605 BC, Nebuchadnezzar II, king of Babylon defeated Pharaoh Necho at the Battle of Carchemish, and subsequently invaded Judah. To avoid the destruction of Jerusalem, King Jehoiakim of Judah, in his third year, changed allegiances from Egypt to Babylon. ~ Wikipedia
The populations of both were carried into captivity. In violation of the Law of Moses (Deuteronomy 7:3), the Children of Israel were forced to inter-mingle and inter-marry with their pagan neighbors. It was a cunning military tactic which diluted the national identity of conquered nations and inhibited them from rebelling against their captors. It is the real reason Western nations have been inundated with immigrants by traitors in their own governments, both legal and illegal aliens. While angry citizens aim their ire at the immigrants, the real culprit is Rome.
Babylon was a kingdom empowered by the Devil’s Simulation; a Luciferian system based upon sexual perversion and suffering of the innocent. It was a system that maintained the strictest secrecy and power through to this very day until I exposed it with my latest book, Eaters of Children.
Kings honored the Satanic source of their authority in many ways. One of them was to ritually castrate young boys.
The “mother goddess” has taken on many forms through the centuries, “Columbia” being one of the more recent versions.
What has been consistent, however, has been the connection to debauchery, fixation on reproduction and proof of dedication by causing the innocent to suffer.
These are all foundational to the Devil’s Simulation.
In Greece, the mother-goddess Cybele was honored in such fashion. The most iconic example of blood-sacrifice to Cybele was the slaughter of a bull upon her altar, known as the Taurobolium.
The consort of Cybele was Attis, a youth who was so dedicated to her that he cut off his own genitals in her service.
The voluntary or involuntary castration of young men became a key part of pagan rites.
Such boys were presented to kings as cowed servants, guaranteed not to interfere with royal harems.
These abominable practices go back to the dawn of “civilization”.3
Across the centuries it was learned that court “eunuchs” could also be employed as minstrels known as “castrati” (singular, “castrato”). …
With good reason is the practice known by an Italian term. It wasn’t until 18615 that the practice was finally outlawed in Italy but it continued to be openly “tolerated” and secretly encouraged by the Vatican at least until 1959.
Thousands of boys were mutilated regularly, ostensibly to give them singing voices unattainable any other way but most never sang after they were victimized. ~ Eaters of Children, Cirucci, CreateSpace, Sept. 11, 2017, pp. 7, 8
Rather than inflict this crime upon their own populations, kings would often take the children of nations they captured. This is likely what happened to the Prophet Daniel and his comrades Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah (who were given the Babylonian names Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego). Out of respect for God’s servants, Scripture makes no mention of this but it is almost certain that Daniel would not have been placed in close proximity of the King and under the authority of the Chief Eunuch unless he was one himself. It was a terrible price to pay but it also put Daniel in position to become one of the most powerful men in the world at his time.
The Book of Daniel explains that God sent King Nebuchadnezzar a powerful, disturbing dream. He sought an explanation from his soothsayers but their usual procedures of taking what was known and putting an unverifiable spin upon it angered him.
… in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams, and his spirit was troubled and his sleep left him. Then the king gave the command to call the magicians and the astrologers and the sorcerers and the Chaldeans to tell the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. The king said to them, “I have had a dream, and my spirit is anxious to understand the dream.”
Then the Chaldeans spoke to the king in Aramaic, “O king, live forever. Tell your servants the dream, and we will tell the interpretation.”
The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, “The command from me is firm: If you will not make known to me the dream with its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces and your houses shall be made a dunghill. But if you tell the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor. Therefore tell me the dream and its interpretation.”
They answered again and said, “Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will tell the interpretation.”
The king answered and said, “I know of certainty that you are bargaining for time, because you see that the command from me is firm: If you will not make known to me the dream, there is but one decree for you. For you have agreed to speak lying and corrupt words before me until the circumstance is changed. Therefore tell me the dream so that I know that you can tell me its interpretation.”
The Chaldeans answered before the king and said, “There is not a man on the earth who can tell the king’s matter, inasmuch as no great king or ruler has ever asked such things of any magician or astrologer or Chaldean. Also, it is a rare thing that the king requires, and there is no one else who can tell it before the king, except the gods whose dwelling is not with flesh.”
For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon. Therefore the decree went out that the wise men should be slain. And they sought for Daniel and his companions to be slain.
Then Daniel answered with discretion and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king’s guard, who had gone out to kill the wise men of Babylon. He answered and said to Arioch the king’s captain, “Why is the decree from the king so urgent?” Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel. Then Daniel went in and desired of the king that he would give him time in order that he could tell the king the interpretation.
Then Daniel went to his house and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, so that they might ask for compassion from the God of Heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. ~ Daniel 2:1-17, Modern English Version
Daniel beseeched God to give him understanding of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and it was granted to him. He bravely used it to proclaim YHWH as the one, true God before the most powerful man in the world.
Daniel answered in the presence of the King and said, “The secret which the King has demanded, the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers cannot tell the king. But there is a God in Heaven who reveals secrets and makes known to King Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream and the visions of your head upon your bed are these:”
“As for you, O king, your thoughts came into your mind upon your bed about what would come to pass hereafter, and He who reveals secrets makes known to you what shall come to pass. But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living man, but for the purpose of making known the interpretation to the king, and that you might understand the thoughts of your heart.”
“You, O king, were watching, and there was a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you. And its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You watched until a Stone was cut out without hands which struck the image upon its feet, which were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors. And the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found. But the Stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole Earth.”
“This was the dream. Now we will tell its interpretation before the king. You, O King, are the King of kings. For the God of Heaven has given you a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. Wherever the sons of men dwell, or the animals of the field, or the fowl of the heavens, He has given them into your hand and has made you ruler over them all. You are the head of gold.”
“After you, another kingdom inferior to you shall arise, and a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the Earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, for iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, it shall crush and shatter all these. As you saw the feet and toes, partly of potters’ clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided. But there shall be in it some of the strength of the iron, inasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. As the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. Whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave to one another, even as iron does not mix with clay.”
“In the days of these kings the God of Heaven shall set up a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the Kingdom shall not be left to another people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the Stone was cut out of the Mountain without hands and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God has made known to the King what shall come to pass hereafter. And the dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.” ~ Daniel 2:27-45, Modern English Version (some capitalization added for clarity and to correct disrespect)
Christian and secular historians are nearly unanimous in their explaining the four major kingdoms:
* Head of Gold: Babylon
* Chest and Arms of Silver: Medo / Persia
* Belly and Thighs of Bronze: Greece
* Legs and Feet of Iron and Miry Clay: Rome (and no-human allies)
What they have been quiet about is how the military empire of Rome transformed into the religious empire which rides world power just as the Bible predicted.
“After this I was seeing in the visions of the night, and lo, a fourth beast, terrible and fearful, and exceedingly strong; and it hath iron teeth very great, it hath consumed, yea, it doth break small, and the remnant with its feet it hath trampled; and it [is] diverse from all the beasts that [are] before it; and it hath ten horns.” ~ Daniel 7:7, Young’s Literal Translation
The four beasts of Daniel’s vision in Chapter 7 are the same as those of Nebuchadnezzar in Chapter 2. Note the “great iron teeth” of the fourth beast.
One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the Great Harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the Earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the Earth were made drunk with the wine of her sexual immorality.”
Then he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filth of her sexual immorality. On her forehead a name was written:
BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the Saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.
When I saw her, I marveled greatly. Then the angel said to me, “Why do you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast, which you saw, was, and is not, and is to ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to destruction. Those who dwell on the earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world will marvel when they see the beast that was, and is not, and is to come.”
“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. Concerning the Beast who was, and is not, he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to destruction.”
“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom yet, but they will receive authority as kings for one hour with the Beast. These are of one mind and will give their power and authority to the beast. These will wage war with the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings. Those who are with Him are called and Chosen and Faithful.”
Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the Harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. These ten horns and the Beast which you saw will hate the Harlot; they will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God has put in their hearts to fulfill His Will, and to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the Words of God are fulfilled. The woman whom you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the Earth.” ~ Revelation 17, Modern English Version (some capitalization added)
The seven hills of Rome are so legendary even “user-edited” Wikipedia acknowledges them with a special entry.
The split of the fourth kingdom is also easy to define in history.
Charlemagne’s crowning made the Byzantine Emperor redundant, and relations between the East and the West deteriorated until a formal split occurred in 1054. The Eastern Church became the Greek Orthodox Church by severing all ties with Rome and the Roman Catholic Church — from the pope to the Holy Roman Emperor on down. ~ Dummies.com
The scandals in the “Eastern Rite” / Orthodox Church seem not as well-covered as those of the Catholic Church.
Orthodox clergy are allowed to marry before being ordained but not afterward.
This may have reduced the number of scandals but they still exist.
Thirty-two years old, struggling with severe mental illness, the man turned in desperation to his church, the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco.
But soon after the man implored the Rev. Michael Rymer to be his “spiritual father” and guide him through his troubles, the priest allegedly seduced him without revealing that he had been exposed to HIV, court records show.
The priest allegedly entangled the mentally ill parishioner in a long-running, illicit relationship, offering religious salvation while inflicting sexual abuse.
“I was going to Father Michael when I was in my worst state,” the man later testified. “When I would go to him to help me, he would help me, and afterward he would take advantage of me. That was his method of continual operation over and over again.”
Over a 14-year-period, several church officials learned that the priest was HIV-positive, and they suspected he was having sex with his parishioner, according to court records. But they did not report Rymer’s misconduct.
The priest’s alleged sexual abuse of his vulnerable parishioner seemed destined to remain a secret masked by a church hierarchy steeped in tradition rich with incense and icons.
But the man’s psychiatrists urged him to complain. And with encouragement from a San Francisco-based watchdog organization that monitors sex abuse in the Eastern Orthodox Church, he filed a lawsuit accusing the priest of sexual battery and the church of negligence.
Rymer and the church have denied wrongdoing. But after San Francisco Superior Court Judge Patrick Mahoney ruled that the church might face potentially high punitive damages, the defendants settled the case at a closed court hearing on Thursday from which members of the media and the public were excluded.
The man’s lawyers, Terry Gross and Monique Alonso, declined to comment but said in court papers that despite blatant evidence of clerical misconduct, “the Church deliberately turned a blind eye.” Carla Hartley and William Wilson, attorneys for the church, also declined comment but said in a brief that the church had acted appropriately.
Many Lawsuits Against Church
The Rymer case is the latest sex abuse settlement to roil the 1.5 million-member Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, part of the worldwide Eastern Orthodox Church, which split from the Roman Catholic Church in the 11th century.
In the past decade, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese has paid more than $10 million to settle sex abuse cases, according to the church. The archdiocese faces pending lawsuits alleging sex abuse by priests in Texas, Florida, Illinois and Arizona.
Meanwhile, more than two dozen Greek Orthodox priests around the country have been criminally convicted, sanctioned by the church or sued for sexually abusing parishioners, according to the San Francisco-based watchdog group. The organization is called Pokrov, for an Orthodox church icon that represents the protection of Mary, mother of God. ~ San Francisco Chronicle
Naming the Orthodox victim advocate group after an “icon” of the “mother of God” is an ominous sign that they will not receive justice.
Miriam was vessel that bore Jesus in His human form, God has no mother. The “Mary” of Rome is the reincarnated “Semiramis”, “Isis”, “Cybele” and “Columbia” of the Devil’s Simulation.
In Greece, Orthodoxy openly runs government as it does secretly in Russia. 2005 saw the outing of some of its skulduggery.
Greece’s Orthodox church, buffeted by sex and corruption scandals, met in emergency session yesterday amid lurid claims that have included one newspaper publishing photographs of a 91-year-old bishop naked in bed with a nubile young woman.
Scrambling to resolve the worst crisis in the church’s modern history, the embattled spiritual leader, Archbishop Christodoulos, convened the rare meeting as allegations of skulduggery, sexual improprieties, trial rigging, drug and antiquities smuggling engulfed the institution.
“I humbly ask for forgiveness from the people and the clerics who, for the most, honour… the cassock they wear,” he said addressing the 102-member Holy Synod, the church’s ruling council.
“There is a lot that must be done to put our house in order,” he conceded before proposing a series of reforms.
Greeks have watched dumbfounded as allegations of their priesthood’s dissolute lifestyle have unfolded on their television screens.
Snatched tape-recordings, aired nightly, have revealed rampant homosexuality among senior clerics who, unlike ordinary priests, are under oaths of chastity.
The alleged debauchery has not been limited to monastic cells. Last week, claims emerged that Metropolitan Theoklitos of Thessaly, a leading churchman, had been arrested on suspicion of drug dealing in a police raid on a notorious nightclub in Athens.
The priest was reportedly rounded up with Seraphim Koulousousas, the archbishop’s former private secretary, also implicated in another “unholy affair” involving gay sex with a bishop. ~ The Guardian
In the shadow of the Acropolis, Greeks are witnessing a scandal-plagued showdown — involving allegations of drug-dealing bishops, bribe-taking judges and a mysterious fugitive — that could permanently sever the ancient bonds of church and state.
A series of stunning revelations has uncovered what seems to be a powerful criminal element within the leadership of the Greek Orthodox church. Run by bishops accused of serious crimes, the ring is reported to exert control over Greek politicians and judges, and to have used the church’s almost unlimited powers to build a mafia-like hierarchy of wealth and corruption.
This week, the scandal threatened to reach the very top of this secretive church. Archbishop Christodoulos, the 66-year-old leader of the church, has been accused of working with a convicted drug smuggler named Apostolos Vavilis, who is wanted by Interpol and believed to be hiding in Italy. The archbishop said this week that the relationship is innocent, but police want to question Mr. Vavilis about his role in the church, where he allegedly acted as an envoy at the highest levels.
The church, which for decades has seemed immune to criticism, has begun to be shaken. During the ceremonial inauguration of a new Greek president on Saturday, half a dozen members of parliament stormed out of the legislature, and dozens more refused to stand, when the archbishop entered the chamber in his ceremonial headdress and carrying his sceptre.
“These are issues which must be confronted,” MP Fotis Kouvelis, one of the six who walked out, said in an interview in his office earlier this week.
“We believe the church has delayed in confronting these corruptions — consequently, there is a responsibility in the hierarchy of the church to answer for these events … for us, the only answer is a severance of the powers and responsibilities of the church from those of the state.”
A majority of Greeks now believe that the archbishop should resign, according to a poll this week, but it will not be easy to transform a church that is older, and in many ways mightier and wealthier, than the modern Greek state.
The Orthodox Church is a state religion, its 10,500 priests and 10,000 theologians paid government salaries similar to those earned by high-school teachers. Its 81 bishops are far more powerful, earning tax-free salaries similar to those of cabinet ministers and at least twice again that much from fees for weddings, baptisms and funerals, from the rental of burial plots and from the construction and renting of apartments on church property (which is legal). ~ The Globe and Mail
Actually, Greece is to be commended. Where Rome controls all the rest of world governments unbeknownst to their citizenry, at least Greeks know who really runs things.
Clearly, the Prophet Daniel knew what he was talking about.
As we’ve told you repeatedly, Rome likes to commit crimes hiding behind Jews.
Searches via the Roman-controlled internet are quick to substitute Jewish Orthodox scandals that are much more robust in the staggering secret control of government.
The Harlot of Babylon even controls our information. It’s no coincidence that the founding of the world’s most powerful search engine, “Google”, is on the anniversary of the founding of the Jesuits: September 27th.
As a result, if one tries to search “Google” for “Orthodox scandals” the primary results are from those committed by Orthodox Jews.
It is truly ironic that Rome gets her “Papal Court Jews” to so eagerly betray their own. The Great Harlot emplaces Jews like “Dave Seaman” to be the acceptable name and face of the 2016 “PizzaGate scandal” and then use him to promote how the Jews at the New York Times have “outed” the criminal deviancy of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
But even when they are patsies, Rome’s Jews still get the same protections of any of her pedophiles.
Brooklyn district attorney Charles Hynes has refused a freedom of information request for details of child sex abuse prosecutions in the Orthodox Jewish community, amid questions over the veracity of his arrest figures.
The refusal coincides with the collapse of his most vaunted prosecution after appellate court judges ruled this week for a mistrial in the case of Baruch Lebovits, sentenced in 2010 to a maximum 32-year jail term.
Lebovits was convicted in March 2010 of abusing a 16-year-old boy. The DA’s office said it is prepared to retry the case. But victims’ advocates say his mistrial is a major setback in their efforts to encourage other child sex victims to risk community censure and come forward. Advocate Joel Engelman said the decision was “extremely demoralising”.
Last month the Guardian reported that the DA was facing accusations that he has failed to tackle up the cover-up of abuse in Brooklyn’s Orthodox community – the largest Orthodox community in the world outside Israel. Rabbinic leaders are accused of hampering efforts to uncover abuse, and many victims face intimidation and threats to prevent them pressing charges.
The Guardian and the Jewish Forward paper had submitted freedom of information (FOI) requests for details of cases. But this week Hynes’s office informed the Forward that it was denying its request, because the close-knit nature of the Orthodox community meant disclosing the names of defendants would reveal the identities of the victims. The DA’s spokesman, Jerry Schmetterer, confirmed that the Guardian’s request would also be refused on the same grounds.
The statement refusing the FOI request marks the first admission by Hynes that suspected child abusers from the Orthodox Jewish community receive exceptional treatment. ~ The Guardian
It’s quite courageous of The Guardian to post an ancillary story on the special treatment Jewish clergy receives from “secular” government. What is missing, however, are the overwhelming number of stories showing who Catholic clergy get this treatment and more…about 20-to-1 more (both treatment and stories). For that, you’ll need to get Eaters of Children.
Proving the Pedocracy has an absolute lock on all power positions even down to a big city District Attorney, the change of the guard in Brooklyn brought no change.
After initially facing up to 32 years in prison for eight counts of child sexual abuse, Baruch Lebovits walked out of Riker’s Island last week a free man. He had served just under 16 months of total prison time.
That Lebovits, a cantor from the ultra-Orthodox Borough Park section of Brooklyn, was even convicted is seen as a victory considering the difficulty of prosecuting abuse in that community. However, his release is disappointing, if not surprising, for those who hoped Brooklyn district attorney Kenneth Thompson would be the man to end decades of ultra-Orthodox sex abuse cover-ups.
Thompson beat out Charles Hynes for Brooklyn DA, ending a reign that last more than 23 years. Towards the end of his time as DA, Hynes was scrutinized for his perceived unwillingness to prosecute crimes against the ultra-Orthodox, especially in regards to sexual abuse. At best, his administration appeared exceptionally lax, and at worst, it willfully obstructed justice. He was famously reluctant to release the names of convicted sex abusers in the Orthodox community. His office let Rabbi Yehuda Kolko get away without jail time or registering as a sex offender. Instead, Kolko received a plea deal that allowed him to plea guilty to child endangerment. The DA claimed the alleged victims—first graders in Kolko’s class—were unwilling to testify, but chief of the Kings County sex crimes division, Rhonnie Jaus, publicly said that their parents had been willing to put the kids on the stand. It was one of many cases that raised questions about Hynes’ willingness to prosecute ultra-Orthodox sex abuse.
Many critics of abuse and corruption in the ultra-Orthodox community hoped and believed Thompson would bring justice to Brooklyn. For his part, Thompson openly criticized Hynes’ record on crimes committed by the ultra-Orthodox. “Every community in Brooklyn has to be treated the same,” he said during a 2013 interview. “When I become Brooklyn DA, I’ll make sure there’s equal justice for everyone, under the law.”
In fact, days after Thompson was elected last November, he requested that Hynes freeze any new ruling on the Lebovits case. Thompson said he wanted to ensure a “full opportunity to review the Lebovits matter and participate in the decision to take the case to trial or dispose of it by way of a guilty plea.” The Jewish Week reported that sources said Hynes was expected to dispose of the case with a lenient plea deal. Ultimately, Thompson did the same, if not worse.
According to a transcript of the plea deal hearing from May 16, 2014 reviewed by The Daily Beast, Lebovits served even less time than was proposed during negotiations. ~ The Daily Beast
But when it comes to the rape and abuse of the innocent, Rome is still the reigning King.
—or, rather, “Queen”.
- Many accounts use the Luciferian dating system of “B.C.E.” and “C.E.” These are a ludicrous re-write which maintain the same start point (an inaccurate dating of the Birth of Jesus Christ) but re-name “Before Christ” to “Before Common Era” and “Ano Domini” (Latin for “In the Year of Our Lord”) to “Common Era”.
