Michael A Hoffman II, historian and writer, is the founder of Independent History & Research. He was educated at the University of New York and is a former reporter for the New York Bureau of the Associated Press.

Hoffman is the author of several books, including the well known, Judaism’s Strange Gods. His newsletter, The Hoffman Wire, is sent out weekly to thousands of supporters.

Br Nathanael: Is Judaism based on the Old Testament Scriptures?

Michael Hoffman: No. By the time of Christ, Judaism was based on the “Oral Law.” The New Testament speaks of this as the “traditions of the elders.” Jesus Christ denounced and condemned the “traditions of the elders” in the Gospel of John Chapter 5 and in the Gospel of Mark Chapter 7.

After the Jewish leadership crucified Jesus Christ, and their subsequent killings and persecution of Christians throughout the Roman world, the rabbis committed to writing the “traditions of the elders” which formed the first part of the Talmud called the Mishnah.

This occurred in Babylon toward the end of the second century A.D. All subsequent books of the Talmud were composed in Babylon from the third century until the end of the sixth century A.D.

Br Nathanael: Is then Judaism based on the Talmud and not on the Bible?

Michael Hoffman: The hermeneutic system of Judaism is not based on the Bible but on the Talmud. This must be understood when dealing with the rabbis and their submissive flock. Judaism, though much in vogue with Evangelicals and Roman Catholics, is totally alien to the only Biblical religion on earth today, Christianity.

Br Nathanael: You said above that Jesus Christ denounced the traditions of the elders? How so?

Michael Hoffman: The rabbis teach that the revelation granted to Moses had been delivered in two forms, a smaller revelation in writing, and the larger one kept oral.

The rabbis claim that the so-called “oral revelation” had been transmitted by the leaders of each generation to their successors—by Moses to Joshua; and then to the elders; to the prophets; to the men of the Sanhedrin; to the leaders of the Pharisees; and finally to the earliest rabbis who saw themselves as heirs of the Pharisees.

This supposed transmission of the Oral Law, the “tradition of the elders,” was challenged by Jesus who termed it “commandments of men which nullify the Word of God.”

Thus Jesus made the tale of the transmission a fraud. It is a lie concocted in hell to claim that Moses issued two sets of law, one written and public – the other oral and secret. In the entire Bible there is nothing to support this imposture.

Br Nathanael: So the oral tradition of the Jews is not consonant with the Old Testament?

Michael Hoffman: Not at all. The spurious claim of an oral “tradition of the elders” bequeathed by God to Moses is anti-Biblical, just as Jesus asserted.

Christ very simply illuminated the fact that if the Pharisaic tradition had indeed been from Moses, then they would have become Christians. For Christ rebuked them saying, “Had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me, for he wrote of Me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe My words?”

Here Jesus annihilated in one stroke the basis for the religion of Judaism and its conceit of an oral tradition given to it by Moses. For had such a tradition existed it would have testified of Jesus the Messiah. Instead, Christ tells them point blank that they do not follow Moses!

Br Nathanael: When speaking of the centrality of the Talmud in Judaism, you refer to the “rabbis and their submissive flock.” How then does the Jewish secularist figure into this submissive flock?

Michael Hoffman: All of those within the polity of Judaism, even the Jewish secularist, give tacit allegiance to the rabbis. How often have we heard from any of them when challenged with the Messiahship of Jesus, this response: But the rabbis do not believe in Jesus!

Well of course they do not believe! How could they? For as Jesus stated in his reproof to the Pharisees, their tradition is a denial of what Moses wrote about the coming of the Messiah in the Person of Jesus Christ. Moreover, as regards the Jewish secularist, he exhibits the same chauvinism and racism as the Talmudists.

Br Nathanael: With the Talmud being the basis of Judaism, how then does one bring the Gospel message to the rabbis and their followers?

Michael Hoffman: When presenting Old Testament proofs of the Messiahship of Jesus to the rabbis and their followers – one must penetrate the iron-clad grid of the Talmudic mind-set which according to Christ’s assertion makes the Scriptures of none effect.

From the outset, the Christian must realize that the rabbis and their followers do not know their own Scriptures, and for that matter, do not care to know them. For they view the Talmud as superceding the Scriptures. Much patience is required when bringing the Gospel message to them, and perhaps at times, stern reproofs are necessary.

Br Nathanael: What do you mean by saying that the Jewish secularist exhibits the same chauvinism and racism as believers in the Talmud?

Michael Hoffman: The main tenet of Judaism is Jewish self-worship. Judaism has as its “god,” not the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but the worship of the Jewish people.

Jewish self-worship is at the core of the Talmud. The secularist amongst them shares in this self-worship. For the Talmud teaches that the Gentile is a lower form of humanity. They all believe that they have this special-ness about them, believing the myth that they, not the Christians, are the “chosen people.”

Coupled with the false notion that they are the “chosen people” – regardless of their unethical conduct, their gross distortions of the God of the Bible, their unbelief, their hatred of Biblical Christian culture, (which has afforded them asylum in Christian nations), and their persistent rejection of Jesus the Messiah – the Talmud teaches that those within Judaism are of a higher form of humanity than others. For they pray both in the synagogue and in their homes, “I thank Thee O God that Thou has not made me a Gentile.”

Br Nathanael: You say that the Talmud has made the Scriptures of none effect. How so?

Michael A. Hoffman: In the Gospel of Mark Chapter 7, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees saying, “You make the Word of God of none effect by your tradition that you have handed down.” There is little in the Talmud which refers to Old Testament Scriptures – but rather, teachings that are contrary to the Scriptures.

The Talmud teaches that a Jew may *kill, **steal, and ***lie to non-Jews with impunity -yet all of these actions are in violation of the 6th, 7th, and 9th commandments of Moses. Here is but one example of the Oral Law making the Word of God “of none effect.” [*Tractates Sanhedrin 58b; **Baba Mezia 24a; **Sanhedrin 57a; ***Baba Kama 113a]

There is also the Talmudic nullification of the sin of King David, by which sin, Christians have learned to shun the sins of adultery and hostility, reciting the penitent words of King David in Psalm 51. But the religion of Judaism will have none of this! For the Talmud states: “whosoever says King David sinned is mistaken.”

According to the Talmud the practice in those days for men going to war was to give their wives conditional divorces. The Talmud states that Bathsheba was no longer married and hence decrees that King David did not sin.

What the rabbis are actually saying is that it is God who is mistaken–yet the Word of God clearly declares that David sinned by killing Uriah the Hittite and committing adultery with his wife: “Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house because thou hast despised Me and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.” (II Samuel 12)

Br Nathanael: Is it true that the Talmud blasphemes Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary?

Michael Hoffman: The Talmud indeed blasphemes Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary. Tractate Sanhedrin 106a says that Jesus’ mother was a harlot: “She who was a descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters.” Also in Tractate Shabbath 104b of the Talmud, it is stated: “Miriam the hairdresser had sex with many men.”

As regard the Talmud’s treatment of Jesus Christ, Tractates Sanhedrin 107b and Sotah 47a say: “Jesus was sexually immoral, worshipped statues of stone and brick, was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness, and refused to repent.” And even a more vile blasphemy is written in Tractate Gitten 57: “Jesus is in hell, being boiled in hot excrement.”

Br Nathanael: What attitude then should Christians take towards Judaism?

Michael Hoffman: Christians must understand that the religion of Judaism is anti-Biblical. The true religion of the God of Israel is Christianity not Judaism. Judaism is simply a perversion of God’s original revelation to the Hebrew nation–it is the very religion of nullification of the Old Testament.

Now what fellowship has light with darkness? What fellowship has Christ with Belial? What fellowship has the true worship of God with idols and “Judaism’s strange gods?” None!

Brother Nathanael @ September 12, 2007


  1. Amine March 22, 2008 @ 4:04 am

    The Jews are using the Christians against the Muslims.

    The Muslims and the Christians have lived since the birth of Islam together and in harmony. For us as Muslims, Jesus is one of the greatest prophets and messenger of God Almighty and he is part of our faith.

    Denying Jesus is a blasphemy in Islam. He was born miraculousely from the Virgin Mary by God’s permission. I would like my brothers and sisters the Christians to know that.


  2. admin March 22, 2008 @ 8:59 am

    Dear Amine –

    The Jews have nothing to do with regard to relations between Christians & Muslims.

    Muslims made many martyrs out of Orthodox Christians some by horrible unspeakable tortures during the Turkish/Muslim yoke between 1453 & 1821 culminating in the hanging of our great St Patriarch Gregory V by the murderous Turks.

    Dear “Brother” Nathaneal,

    Verily, you can take the Jew out of the Synagogue, but you can’t take the Synagogue out of the Jew.

    Thank you for barking at Sister Amine; very Christian of you. Please tell us why you belive Allah — Arabic for God (recited by any Christian Arab by the way in Prayer to God In Arabic ..) — is a “FALSE” god. (Also please “fix your caps lock” …)

    The Qur’an Teaches — and it is *they only* instance of Allah (The GOD) speaking to HIS Creation outside of what HE Spoke Direct to Moses — The It IS The Book That Makes Things Clear.

    You, “Brother” Nathanael were rude to Sister Amine. You will consider that The GOD — Allah in Arabic to you, got it? — IS All Knowing and you are just a critter that needs to be “Saved”.

    Keep remembering that. That would put things in Perspective, “Brother”.

    Cause as already mentioned in this thread, my LORD IS A Consuming Fire …

    Now, try to be a Good Tree, say Salaam, Meaning Shalom, to Sister Amine … OR else ..

    +Hugs and Kisses

    Dear “Spear Of Destiny,”

    This comment section is really not a venue to spread the religion known as Islam.

    This comment section is designed to comment on the Anti Christian agenda of the Jews.

    Not once do I vilify or censure Islam on my many articles. So really, you think to spread your prophet Mohammed and the religion here will get you anywhere? I trow not.

    A FATWAH was put out on Pope Benedict for baptizing a known Muslim. Islam has proven over the centuries to be a religion of Death Sentences, marauding, and murder. What really has Islam offered society but DEATH SENTENCES, murder, and oppression?

    Since the 1990’s Muslims have murdered over 2,000,000 animists and Christians in Sudan. But China and the Jews own oil in Sudan and are preventing any intervention.

  5. Mark Glenn April 2, 2008 @ 7:27 am

    While I consider Br Nathanael a friend and an important ally in the struggle to expose the evil tenets of Judaism, I must agree with Amine and take exception with Br. Nathanael’s views of Islam.

    To suggest that the Jewish agenda has nothing to do with the present ‘clash of civilizations’ between Christians and Muslims is in fact incorrect. This present war between the 2 faiths is no accident, it is the classical Jewish tactic of pitting 2 sides against each other for the benefit of Israel.

    And while I appreciate Br. Nathanael’s fervor for Jesus, which I also share, I would also suggest that he not be led down the anti-Islamic path that has been carved out for the Christian west by Jewish liars.

    There is much to be gained in defeating this present evil by the Christians and Muslims working together on common ground.

    As a Christian who has studied both the Bible and the Koran extensively I can state that the Koran has some of the most beautifully-written religious verses I have ever encountered.

    ‘The Lord works in mysterious ways,’ as the old saying goes and it may very well be that it is in His agenda for the Christians and Muslims to work together on this one instead of being at each other’s throats.

    As Jesus said, ‘Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free’ and having said that, I would encourage anyone entertaining anti-islamic views to take a 2nd look at what REALLY is contained in this faith before biting down on that Jewish hook. mg

    My dear brother in Christ Mark Glenn!

    This site is dedicated to exposing the Jews and their Anti Christian agenda.

    Not a single one of my articles published on this site has any disparaging words to say about Islam & Muslims.

    To the contrary, I have defended their rights in the Gaza Strip, the orange groves stolen from them in Jaffa, as well as the rights of the Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land.

    But when the Muslims come to this Comment Section NOT to comment on the Jewish agenda and the evils of Zionism – but rather to promote their religion of Islam, I MUST speak my mind on Islam.

    Please dear Mark, my brother in Christ Jesus, see my 3 articles:

    “The Evils Of Zionism” @

    “From Zion With Hate” @

    “Kill Civilians? The Talmud Tells Me So!” @

    I am someday going to be murdered by the Jews. I got a death threat last month from one them. But I do not fear to express myself and my opinions. Do keep me in your prayers dear Mark my brother in Christ.

  7. admin April 2, 2008 @ 12:04 pm

    Dear Mark,

    As I stated so many times on COMMENTS throughout this Site, I have never said anything disparaging regarding Islam or Muslims.

    Many Muslims have been coming to the Comment Sections not to put in their thoughts of the Jewish agenda, but to PROMOTE Islam and their prophet, Muhammed.

    Christ warned us in Luke 21 and Matthew 24 NOT to receive any others who claim revelation that is FALSE.

    St Paul said that if any bring a “gospel message” contrary to what the apostles delivered, let that one be ANATHEMA! (Galatians 1)

    I deal with FACTS dear Mark, and that is why the Jews are trying to bring this Site down.

  8. Deezy May 19, 2008 @ 11:05 pm

    Br. Nathanael,

    You have no need for me to act as your apologist but allow me a couple of words if I may.

    Br. Nate has a very focused theme. Zionism.

    His silence on Islam should not be taken as patronage. Islam just isn’t on the menu here. Though when he is forced to comment on Islam he is historically on target.

    Read The Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia fame). You will find that one of the problems Lawrence faced leading the Arabs against the Turks was the fact that the Turks most often fought to the death rather than be captured alive by Arabs.

    The reason Turks fought to the death was because if captured they were sodomized, tortured in sundry ways then beheaded.

    Not only did this make fighting the Turks more difficult it was a PR nightmare.

    Great work Br. Nate!

  9. InSiSt May 27, 2008 @ 11:07 am

    I have found this issue ( Judaism’s Strange Gods ) most clarifying and very important.

    Hoffman’s work and Brother Nathanael’s work is of high value as to clarify the subject of Judaism as to the Oral and Written Law. For people like I in the Christian camp it has always been a puzzle why it is so difficult for the Jews to accept Iesous Xristos even if only reading the Old Testament; and for 2000 years.

    Now it is easier having in mind the tradition of Talmud.

    – A Talmudist Joel Ben David in London was encouraged by a messianic Jewess to read the Bible ( OT ) itself, and when he read the 1-5 Books of Moses he said: this is completely different from what the Rabbis taught us. He became later on a Christian. His wife dared to read the Gospel Matthew and she said: why has nobody told us about this?

    – Not to be sure, but I think that the power of the New Testament is so great that the Rabbis and the likes did not dare to take anything of it into Talmud unveiled, frightened that those who read the Talmud thus will become Christians.

    That is the reason of the obscurity in all the hints to Jesus letting them stay as secrets (kryptons) so that the Rabbis may well interpret the secrets for their students, explaining who it is.

    The explanations of Rabbi Gil Student are thus only attempts to wall up for a massive critique if the objections in a common opinion gets many enough. ( See postings from Rachel and Christian further up the page).

    – As to the fight on Islam, don’t be mad Amine and Spear of Density: +BN slapped my face too previously. What we hope is that those of Islam will manage to receive Isa as their personal Saviour Son of God, making the Muslims really think and wonder. We are concerned for all mens soul. Eternal Life.

    – But first of all we are most concerned with the dangerous power of Zionism and Judaism, and for my matter: the Zionist Christians. My question is: what will happen if the Jews get this world power as God’s People like the christosionists hope?

    The Jews will get rid of the New Testament for ever, if possible, and stop anybody to think and believe in the NT teachings. Period. This never comes to the mind of the Christian Zionists.

    As Hoffman points out: The Jews worship themselves. For the Jews the suffering servant in Jesaja 53 is not Messiah but the people of Israel, and this view will become progressively more important to them proportional to a growing view among Jews that the passage is the Messiah Jesus.

    Their Holocaust Industry is a corollary of this view, and the global antisemitism is growing on this ground. Christian Zionists help maintaining the proud view of Jews: they are the chosen people before all nations. This view and pride are blocking their ability to humble themselves.

  10. suraci May 29, 2008 @ 11:59 am

    “The Jews have nothing to do with regard to relations between Christians & Muslims.”

    Nathaniel, I’m intrigued by this statement. Can you please expand on this point, as I believe that Neocons are overwhelmingly Jewish Israeli/American citizens, and that they are behind the current war on terror which is of course a war on Islam, being fought using mainly Christian soldiers against Muslims.

  11. Fuzzy May 30, 2008 @ 2:31 pm

    Funny, zionists like Rachel like to dish it to Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims with horrendous lies squeal neo-nazi or antisemite when the get a lick of the truth stick. LOL!!!

  12. Edward June 6, 2008 @ 12:59 pm

    I would venture to ask just one question for Moslems, Jews, and Christians: Whom did Abraham offer for sacrifice on Mount Moriah, was it Isaac or Ishmael?

    You learn the answer to that and you learn the answer to whom the true God is: god of Islam or the god of Jews or the god Christians. As the saying goes, “There can be only one” Choose you well this day whome ye shall server. Just my opinion though.

  13. Suffer None to Effect July 11, 2008 @ 4:03 pm

    The Zionist agenda is clearly communist and stirred up the ultimate unrest being a war between the christains and muslims.

    Or perhaps over many decades, as dictated through the Talmudic bible, the complete wars and genocides between these two religions.

    Mohammed and some of Islam’s holy figures were false prophets, constructed by Talmudic Judaism. Original greek subversives, gods like Baphomet and Mohammed were created out of the Talmud.

    The Babylon Talmud is as bad, nearly worse than the Babylon Koran it is woven from total complete misunderstanding and evil.

    Islam is mostly a peaceful religion. It was the false followers of a Saladin, the Islamic state of the sepulchur all in the hands of Talmudic Jews- which caused Islam to fall and become an unclean vile religion.

    Islam and Talmudism were born from the same cloth, the Oral law. The original teachings of the Arabs did not condone pedophiles, blaspehmy on the holy city, as this was added in after the Zionists re-printing of the Talmud during the fall of Jerusalem.

    The Taliban came from this violent backwards thinking anathema to the original words of God.
    Muslims and Christains should stop being duped by the Talmudists, into fighting eachother which lets the chosen ‘people’ destroy the temples.

  14. Bill B. July 24, 2008 @ 8:58 am

    Thank you Bro. Nathaneal for sharing your knowledge and insights.

    As Christ said, ‘I do not pray for this world’ as it is governed by the Prince of Darkness. The God of Jesus Christ is in ultimate control of the world and its people, and all the world’s people will see the Truth of Christ on the Last Day, where Christ Himself will judge the living and dead.

    Those led astray by the Tulmud and false leaders and prophets will see the Truth at that time, as we pray for the conversion of those Jews who will listen to you at this time.

  15. John Wayne August 10, 2008 @ 9:31 am

    @ Amine

    The on going persecution of Christian minorities in Muslim dominated countries contradicts your claim;

    The Muslim invasion and continued occupation of Constantinople, historic center of Christendom, also contradicts your claims!

    Furthermore, let us remember that Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and “Palestine” were all Christian lands until the invasion by Arab Muslims shortly after Muhammad arrives on the scene!

    Until recently, Lebanon as well was Christian land!

    Recall that Charles Martel stopped the advance of the Muslim crusaders at Tours, France in 732.

    The Muslim crusaders were thrown back into southern Spain, which they had invaded in 711, where they would battle Christian knights for the next 700 years! Slowly but surely, the Christian knights fought back the Muslim invaders until they were expelled from the Iberian peninsula.

    Pope Urban launched the western “crusades” in 1095, a whopping 384 years AFTER the Muslim crusaders had invaded southern Europe–Spain! Even more centuries had already passed since the Muslim invasions of formerly Christian lands in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, etc!

    Sicily and other parts of southern Italy were also invaded by Muslim crusaders!

    3 times the Austrians would repel the Muslim crusaders at the gates of Vienna!

    The last western “crusade” ended in the 14th century, yet the Muslim crusaders attacked and sacked Constantinople in 1453!

    Frankly, few things are as ridiculous as seeing Muslims carry placards condemning the Pope for “crusades”…outside the Hagia Sophia Cathedral in CONSTANTINOPLE!

    Finally, can you please explain what exactly is the difference between the American Indians and the fate of Egypt’s Copts, or Syria’s Syriacs, Iraq’s Chaldeans, Lebanon’s Maronites, etc at the hand of Arab Muslim crusaders?

    Bro Nate,

    I thank you for your work. I know how tiring it can be trying to talk to these people. They are brainwashed to the max.


  17. The Last Word December 27, 2008 @ 5:03 pm

    “Rev. {22:18} For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    {22:19} And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.”

    Some 700 years later came Mohammad and shaped a new religion to suit himself and the local culture, he pretends to embrace “the book” and also stays away from “the people of the book”. He re-writes and paraphrases “the book” freely. He was not a lettered man, had he been able to read perhaps he would not have created this/ese new cult/s. (sunni/shiaa)

    I was born and raised a Catholic. At least I feel I am a devout believer in Lord Jesus Christ.

    The Jews killed Christ, there’s no doubt about it. Then Christianity became a powerful religion around the 4th and 5th century due to Emperor Constantine.

    Then there was the birth and rise of Islam, and since then Jews have been acquiring the hatred of both Muslims and Christians alike. They have been persecuted by both these 2 super-religions at different periods of time, or by others in different geographical boundaries eg. the nazi killing of Jews.

    Or hatred between Palestine and Israel which caused so many wars between Muslims and Jews. this persecution of the Jews is actually a PUNISHMENT FROM GOD, for their killing of the Messiah of the world LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    ISRAEL IS NOT in JUDEA at Present:

    ‘and Yerushalaim (Jerusalem) will be trampled upon by the Gentiles (children of Japeth) until the time of the End.’…said Yeshua.

    So we know who is fighting for Judea (both sides) are the Gentiles, and that will remain ‘until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled…and then shall the Son of Man come.’

  20. Servant of All Mighty August 23, 2009 @ 11:31 am

    Greetings all,

    A day will come when everyone will stand before an infinite God. That day, you will understand the innocence of Muslims. If you conduct a little research, you will find that terrorist Arab nationalism stems from Israeli intelligence officers shortly after the second world war. Hamas was funded initially by Zionists, in order to create a problem that was never there.

    Tell me, how do you expect a man to react, when his country is occupied, his children murdered for kidneys, his wife mother and sister raped for pleasure. What would you do? Now take a look at what’s going on in Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel. You are all unjust. Change your ways.

  21. Paul B September 28, 2009 @ 12:10 am

    Both Islam and Judaism are old fashioned and evil religions. Islam has clearly led to a backward society, Islam was practicing slavery from the very beginning. The philosophy that a nation practices is what determines its current condition. The old Testament clearly states that you will be the head you will not be the tail.

    If therefore a nation has become a third world nation it is because it does not obey God’s word. The tree is known by it fruit. The sun never set on the British Empire and America became a great nation. However both America and England are in decline as a result of abandoning obedience to morals.

    What is the fruit of Judaism? Is it not hatred? Is it not a Holocaust? The idea that the God of the universe would give Moses a secret interpretation of the Law leading to a racist interpretation, is utter nonsense. Time indefinite does not mean forever. It means for an indefinite period of time. God rejected the Abrahamic Covernant in favor of the early Christian Church on Pentecost.

    The practice of the Talmud only leads to hatred and such hatred only leads to an extermination. Moses clearly said so in the Law. The Talmudic interpretations only lead to an extermination. The Ethiopian Jews have no Talmud. Moses married an Ethiopian.

    Since they have no Talmud or secret interpretations of the Law it proves beyond reasonable doubt that Moses never had any secret interpretations. In all history while living in Ethiopia the Ethiopian Jews were never persecuted. The best thing that the Ethiopian Jews can do is to get out of Israel before they get holocausted with the Talmudic Jews.

    Since God lives forever he will most likely use time to prove that he is right and that Jesus is the way the truth and the light. The American Civil War was considered to be a second coming for the opening words are. “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.” Many armageddons will probably take place before any final victory by the God of eternity comes to pass.

    This web site is about the war between good religion and bad, But what about the war between people who wish to save the planet and those who seek its destruction?
    Environmentalism will probably be the next armageddon. False religions are destroying themselves and Liberals are saying that we have to save them from their foolishness.

    But if we spend all our money and resourses to save people from foolishness we will be unable to save ourselves. A lifeboat is limited as to how many people it can carry.

    Israel is a falied state, each Israeli is supported by American Taxpayers to the tune of about $22,000. As a result of supporting Israel and their wars in Afghanistan and Iraq America is going broke.

    America is sinking its own lifeboat. The captains of the lifeboats are breaking the rules to keep the lifeboats afloat so the passengers of the lifeboats are going to have to throw the captains overboard.

    I am a Catholic struggling with my faith.

    My personal belief is that no matter what you believe, if you follow Jesus’s commandment, Love one another, how can we go wrong?

    That is the whole problem right there. We do not love one another. If we did, there would be no wars or evil doings.

  23. perplexed101 May 31, 2010 @ 2:23 am

    After having learned the power holders of this earth… I have to say that the author of this blog has true virtue of bravery.

    I noticed the *pitting* together 2 variances of beliefs, Islam and Christianity. It has become more than abundantly apparent that this is the case. I guess people don’t notice the expansion for land grabbing that is going on in the Middle East.

    “Buy when there’s blood in the streets” (Baron Rothschild in 1871).

    Do you really believe that this is truly the work of a holy crusade? To go after one man and end up having Gentiles die for the name of 3rd world depopulation legislation (Kissinger) or being the sword for God?

    No m’friends what is at work here is not new and certainly not order… led by NA-tional ZI-on once again but with bipartisan help with Bolshevikian secular “Chosenites.”

    They are both cut from the same cloth, although one has the motto: ‘Oh captain my captain,’ while the other “it takes a village to raise one child.” Taking care to swerve your thinking carefully and if you can keep up, it equates to nothing more than oligarchial mandate = global democracy (superficially).

    If Christendom destroys the Muslim by the employ of the Jew then who will the Good Samaritan be if it be not the Christian? Who will truly have the charitable heart?

    I guess it will then be in the hands of the doubting Thomas; the agnostic, for surely have they no Good Samaritan till judgement comes.

    GOD liberated Israel from Egypt. But in a short time Israel went a whoring after other gods.

    Would GOD give Oral Laws to people with such short memories? And as is claimed, that the Talmud orginated from the Oral Laws, this makes the Talmud Questionable.

    The Bible states of satan demanding the body of Moses. Has this got something to do with these so called Talmudic Oral Laws?

    Dear amine

    Dear friend, thanks for your sincerity.

    Still being a sincere believer questing the truth, I must make you a confession.

    Islam was created by Jews to destroy Christianity.

    Mu-hamad is the nick-name of a war leader, but not his name.

    The name Mu-hamed is inexistent in the known Arabic names that we have thru pré islamic sources.

    This name is written in the Holy Bible:

    ISH-HAMED which means man (ISH) of predilection (hamed).

    Many parts of the Kur’an are stories taken directly from the Bible, Talmud, Mishnah and Zohar.

    The so called rassul is not a nabi, but a rassul. Still rassul comes from RAZIEL the angel who spoke to the prophets.

    The NASARA (Judeo-Nazareans mentioned in the Koran) taught during 250 years before 622 AC to the bedouins that they were the sons of Abraham and that the holy land (al ard) had to be re-taken from the Byzantines (al rum).

    Byzantines were Christians who were hated by the Jews.

    Jews needed man power for war against Al RUM. They manipulated the bedouins.

    Then the rest of the story you know it.

    Nevertheless, let me tell you that the first circle near the prophet of Islam were all Jews:
    UBBAYE, ibn warraka , ibn THABIT, etc

    It is said that in Arabia, people were pagans? right? Worshipping stones, statues, but were not Christians! ok!!

    Tell me why they have found remains of churches in the United Arab Emirates? How come?

    Why is it strictly forbidden to excavate and do archeological research in all SAUDI ARABIA? Why? Fear of unpleasant discoveries?

    Because under the Saudi soil, its full of destroyed churches destroyed by these Jewish haters and their bedouin followers called later : mu-slamin (translation of the Aramean: NASLIMA: perfection)

    Jews destroyed the Arabic Christian faith, and, manipulated and created Islam from the beginning. Just like the Bolshevik revolution that they created to destroy the Orthodox Church. They did the same with churches etc.

    Still the Jews were kept away from these Jewish soviet slaughters. Strange? No?

    Dear amine my brother, study the Bible, accept the justice and love of God JEHOVAH and the message of his Messiah Iéshouhah.

    The truth must be said.

    I love Abraham (peace be upon him), I love Moses (peace be upon him), I love Jesus (peace be upon him) and I love Muhammad (peace be upon him).

    But the Jews and the Christians hate me for loving their prophets.

    And none of them it seems care to even know what Muslims believe:

    Muslims are told by their book that they are not Muslim (those who submit to God) if they do not revere ALL the above. But most Christians would side with the Zionists than the Muslim!

  28. John August 19, 2011 @ 7:52 am


    I appreciate your work exposing the International Zionist. However, I think even minimal research will be sufficient to have an accurate understanding of what Islam is and represents.

    Books I’d recommend are “101 Questions You Asked About Islam” by Mehmet Ozalp or “Essentials of the Islamic Faith” by M. Fethullah Gulen, if you are interested.

    The Zionist owned media depicts Islam inaccurately.


    A Muslim

  29. Ramon Beach November 1, 2011 @ 7:26 am

    Regarding Islam:

    Islam as a RELIGION is opposed to the Bible.

    This does not mean that Muslims who sincerely want to know the truth will not be saved, for Christ has other sheep that He will bring unto Himself (see John 10:16; Rev.18:4).

    God wants men (even those who are Muslims) to have a saving knowledge of Christ, and He does this by not only revealing to them a spiritual knowledge of Himself, but also showing the vanity of false gods (see Jer.10:1-11; Isa.44:6-10; Psalm 96:5; 1Tim. 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9).

    In short, men must know the truth or the faith of Christ to be saved (Eph.2:5,8). Amen.

    Dear All,

    Allow me to correct some misconceptions regarding Islam.

    Now if your daughter is raped by some Moslem, who is guilty? Islam or the perpetrator ? The answer is the perpetrator. Islam never teaches its followers to kill, rape, maime etc…but its followers may do it on their own accord – just like followers of any other religion.

    But why do many a follower of Islam (up to today) left us in bad taste ? The answer is simple. Islam has been corrupted long long ago by Satan and the Anti-christ.
    By the third caliphate many of its followers were corrupt.

    Corrupt people do many bad things don’t you think ? I have no plan to defend them. True Moslems shouldn’t defend the guilty and the corrupt.

    Ali bin Abu Talib tried to change things but sadly he was asssasinated on his fifth year of rule. After that Satan and Anti-christ have a field day until the end of times – that is now. So the true forces of Islam have been subdued for the last 1400 years.

    But the message of Islam is still unchanged. Moslems believe at this stage of the end times Jesus Christ and the Mahdi would appear and they would slay the Anti-christ.

    I’d be surprised if the ISRAEL entity would last this decade.

    Bear witness if what I am saying is true.

    Dear Br. Nathaneal,

    I praise and thank you for your good works and the courage you have shown to us all. I have read all the comments related to your article ‘Judaism’s Strange Gods’.

    Many of them spoke facts and some opinions, all of which are telling the story of the world is presently divided into many beliefs.This is perfect for the enemy -“Divide and conquer.”

    It is time for the truth to be told, and I myself thought I knew enough to be sufficiently prepared for these last days, however, I was wrong.This information happened to come from a man I had converted from disbelief to belief,because everything I had revealed to him was true.

    Then,in his undertaking to see whether what I had shown him was true or not, he came across a copy on a DVD of what came to be mind boggling. It tells of the history of the world since 1534 AD. It is packed with historic truths that will shock the world. To clear the air a little, the only thing I did not agree with was the author’s perception of the Jews, however, do not think this is a Jewish book.

    It reveals who the true Antichrist is! It is the Anti-(against)-Christ and the Ante-(instead of)-Christ, both one and the same. This book is 730 pages,and I point this out,because there are several others available, yet they are only 645 pages and they miss a very important piece of information concerning the assassination of JFK and all those involved in it.

    The name of this book is – “Vatican Assassins: Wounded In The House Of My Friends” and it is written by Eric Jon Phelps and can be found at @

    I cannot recommend this book any higher. May the Lord Jesus be with you, and God Bless.

    I just found this web site. I believe the Antichrist has to be Jewish also.

    For people to go whoring after him, he has to be believable. Jews, Muslims, and Christians are looking for a messiah.

    The important warning in the Bible is that Satan comes first! When the man of sin, claiming to be Messiah, sits in Jerusalem, do not fall for his lies.

    If you can still pinch your skin, he is not Christ. The True Christ comes LAST (777), Satan comes FIRST (666).

    Thank you, Br. Nathanael, for your insight, wisdom, and great warnings.

    May God Bless and Keep YOU as you watch and sound the alarm.

  33. Nicole August 1, 2013 @ 10:49 pm

    I really appreciate this site, thank you.

    1 comment on the first comments from 2008, the difference between allah and the God of Abraham, is striking; since I do not have time or room I will give the first and MOST important reason/difference. YHWH is the God of the living, Allah is the god of the dead.

    Like the Talmud ( I have read much of it ) the Qur’an has been watered down for Westerners. The Qur’an reads much like the Talmud, one quote, ” Do not befriend the Jews or the Christians for they are friends of each other”…”Kill ALL unbelievers, strike off their fingers and hands then their feet…behead them all”…

    Christ came preaching LOVE, where do you find murder and hatred? He said “the greatest thing a man can do is to lay down his life for his friends”…-Love is giving NOT taking.

  34. abey September 9, 2013 @ 6:13 am

    They who before their eyes, God brought them out of “EGYPT” who in so short a span of time completely forgot their redemption, to worship through a Golden calf.

    How can such of low memory be trusted with Oral laws, for even the written laws to the applications in the Spirit & truth of it, they had corrupted long before the arrival of Jesus.

  35. Irene Bonney April 7, 2014 @ 2:27 am

    True history supports this article about the con of the supposed holocaust of Jews.

    A few of us who meet to hear our preaching of the word, that now includes a fuller knowledge of Judaism, are astounded. Why?

    That we all of our lives in Australia have heard heresies regarding Israel, end times and the millennium. We marvel at the ignorance, blindness and worship of “Israel”(?) that I myself have said is almost replacing Christ.

    This revealing of the truth as above should be declared far and wide so that millions of blind Christians may understand they are yoked to the Devil’s children as Jesus has said these Jews are and believe His words.

    Thank God I have family who also see the truth instead of following the false teaching in our churches.

  36. Conor MacNessa April 25, 2014 @ 8:52 pm

    There was a controversial cult of monotheism in ancient Egypt that cut short one pharoah’s career.

    I believe the cult continued on after that pharoah, threatening to rip apart Egypt.

    The monotheistic Egyptians took Moses on as their leader, even though he was brother of Pharoah. Moses may have been a monotheist, or not, but he was at the head of a bold experiment to create a client or satellite state in Canaan.

    The Egyptian oligarchs didn’t want a semi-exiled group of fellow countrymen returning to Egypt to cause a civil war, after all, they wanted them out, to avert a civil war, in the first place. But they had to create in these monotheists a sense of separate national identity.

    They forgot they were Egyptians. The leaders of Israel never forgot. Since the Bronze Age, the Egyptians and the Parthians have tilted over control of the whole area. They were equally matched, and neither nation could dominate for long.

    Cleopatra seduced Caesar to swing the mighty Romans to her quest to finish off Parthia, by then called Persia. Caesar was murdered before he could commit armies to the lady’s grand fancy. Now, the point.

    Israel has the same foreign policy today that Egypt had ages ago. Enlist a powerful ally, to do the heavy lifting in the quest to dominate the Middle East. Cleopatra wanted Rome to supply the manpower, while today’s Israel wants the modern Rome, the USA, to neutralize her enemies, especially Parthia, I mean Persia, I mean, IRAN!!!

    This idea that Israel is just a homeland for pious Jews is baloney. Israel will use us, cunning, and patience, to create a Mid-East empire, a super state, run from Tel Aviv. That’s how I see it.

    Brother Nathanael,

    I’m not a follower/promoter of the religion of Islam. But regarding your statement on the genocide of Orthodox Christians during three reign of the Ottoman empire, I would like to suggest you look into 2 sources:

    1. Financing and creation of Ottomans (1299) by the BIS – Switzerland (1291), controlled by the Jewish bankers.

    2. Heads of the Ottomans was a JEWISH BROTHERHOOD whose members publicly changed their faith to Islam but retained their original Talmudic faith.. I found out after much research that they were called *Dönmeh*.

    Thank you for reading.

    God bless you for your work.

    I’ve been studying Judaism for the past 45 years.

    I was born in Colombia and I discovered that both my surnames in Spain Franco’s regime (I was living in the oldest Jewish neighborhood in Europe, Seville). By 1492 98% of Portugal were Jewish.

    I completed 50 years living in USA and very proud of them. For many years I practiced both Roman Catholicism and Judaism.

    Not anymore when someone, a young big Hassidic came to me in a supermarket in Boston, (I live in Miami), and gave me a real photo and talked to me about his first real Jewish Messiah. I couldn’t believe my eyes specially when he said hes about to come.

    I DO agree: Only Old Bible. No new bibles nor Talmud, and Ishmael was a reality. They are all triple first cousins.

    I do belong to the main Jewish organizations in the greater Miami area. I am 100% pro-Israel. I do not blame on the Palestinians but in the end, the whole “Story” is still a real “Mess”.

    Excellent and very unusual article.

    Thanks a lot.

    JMP if you wnt to write me back, you’re more than welcome.

  42. Jovin January 4, 2019 @ 4:40 pm

    Dear Natanael

    In one of your videos on youtube, you talked about the “Davening”. I became interested in what you said in that video and especially about what you mentioned in the last part of the video – about “Shekinah,” and “Iansof” (Did I get the last name of Iansof right? I do not know how to spell it only how it sounded when you mentioned it)

    As I understood what you said in the video; when a Jew is exercising “davening” he is imagining having intercourse with “Shekinah” to complete some kind of connection with (as I heard it be named) “Iansof”.

    I searched google and other search engines for information about Iansof, but did not find any mention of it.

    I did find a little bit about Shekhinah, but that information was not enough either, at least for me to be able to get a deeper understanding of what you where telling us about in your Youtube video about the Dovening

    Could you be so kind and explain in a little more detail about Iansof, even if i got the name wrong?

    I am certain of that you described some kind of entity and if you could also describe some information about Shekinah, the history and the deeper meaning behind these two words are what I am recquesting foremost. But I would be as thankful if you could describe the act of davening over all in as much detail as you have the strength to do.

    So much is secret about the Jews, that I do not expect to find this kind of informaion on internet. But if you have links that is relevant to this, I will be very thankful to receive them.

    I must add to this my request the level of appreciation I have for your information on Youtube. Watching the videos have so often made my mind more clear again, and raised my moral and spirit when I have had a bad day.

  43. Brother Nathanael January 4, 2019 @ 4:55 pm


    It’s Yiddish: לאַנדסמאַן (landzman) for landsman, which means “fellow Jew.”

  44. KathJuliane January 6, 2019 @ 11:10 pm

    Dear Jovin,

    I located the Video you were speaking about titled Satan at the Wailing Wall.

    This must be what you were referring to that +BN described:

    “Now, what Rand Paul should have known is that the Wailing Wall is the seat of a Satanic ritual outlined by the 13th Century Jewish occult system known as the Kabbalah as expounded in the Zohar and expanded upon by the 18th Century Hasidic Movement.

    You see, this so-called ‘Divine Presence’ at the Wailing Wall is actually the Kabbalistic feminine emanation of their false god, the “Shekinah.”

    Watch closely how the rabbis thrust their pelvises and penises back and forth in a prescribed prayer movement called “davening” in which the Jew copulates with the ‘Shekinah’ in order to give birth to an erotic union with the ‘Ein Soph,’ the Kabbalistic masculine emanation of their false god.” – +BN

    The easiest pocket description of the Ein Soph in various forms of Jewish mystical philosophy (which is actually Greek philosophy based on Plato’s divine emanations given a Jewish twist) is the Wikipedia entry on Ein Sof or Ein Soph.

    Pharisee Jews have never had a problem with Greek philosophy as much as they hated Greeks.

    The Jew Philo of Alexandria was a Roman citizen and a Platonic philosopher.

    The very influential Moses ben Maimon, commonly known as Maimonides was a medieval Sephardic Jewish philosopher who became one of the most prolific and influential Torah scholars of the Middle Ages. He closely followed Aristotle’s philosophy as his own.

    What’s noted at Wiki accurate enough for the purpose of forming a framework for what +BN is talking about concerning the kabbalistic gibberish, the interpretations which vary from mystical of rabbi to mystical rabbi and their schools.

    Lurianic mysticism is one branch of Kabbalah, and Zohar is another tradition, there are other branches such as the ancient Merkebah (Chariot) mysticism, and depending on the rabbi or rebbe (Yiddish) often there’s cross-pollination between traditions, rabbinic schools, mystics, charlatans, false-messiahs, etc.

    Which is what happened with Jacob Frank of the notorious Polish Catholic “Frankist” Jews, self-styled themselves as “the Zohar Christians” in their day, who claimed to be anti-Talmudists, and believed in the Holy Trinity after Frank’s entire following was baptised into the Roman Catholic Church in Polish Ukraine, after losing a disputation with the local Rabbinic authorities.

    Born Jankiev Lebowicz, son of a rabbi in Poland, Frank early came under the influence of the Sabbatarians (the followers of Shabbetai Tzevi) and later also, when visiting Turkey, of the Jewish Donmeh sect — crypto-Jews who were outwardly practicing Muslims.

    He declared himself to be an embodiment of the Messiah and adopted a doctrine of the Holy Trinity in which he was the holy king.

    Taking Sabbateanism to new conceptual heights, Frank preached that anyone could find redemption through purity, but his unique way was finding redemption through impurity. Accordingly, Frank’s mystical seances were enlivened with sexual orgies.

    Returning to his homeland, he was attacked by the Talmudists and eventually he and his followers became Catholics, professing conversion to Christianity.

    After Frank allowed himself to be worshiped as the Messiah, however, he was imprisoned by Catholic authorities at a monastery and released some thirteen years later only when the Russians partitioned Poland in 1773.

    He then resided in Vienna and other places before his death in Offenbach. His daughter Eve continued to lead his followers.

    The Zoharists were being persecuted at this time as heretics by the Rabbinic authorities who wished the Church to burn their fellow Jews at the stake.

    In desperation the Zoharists and their families sought church protection and put on a veneer of anti-Talmudism in order to gain the protection of the ecclesiasatical authorities, professing their near Catholic faith and doctrines in the most ambiguous of terms as revealed to them through the Zohar, such as the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, etc.

    Jacob Frank, leading his Zoharist Christians to the waters of salvation which would remove his group from the clutches of the autonomous Polish-Lithuanian Rabbinate government and by virtue of baptism make them Polish Catholic citizens under different set of laws, neglected to say that the Trinity his “Zohar Christians” believed in were the divine embodiments of Sabbatai Svei, Rebbe Berechiah, and himself, Jacob Frank, aka “the Lord” and “the Messiah”.

    The Ain Soph is usually represented by the 11th century medieval Kabbalistic Tree of Life and its Ten Emanations that most non-Jews might be familiar with.

    From Wikipedia:

    “According to Gershom Scholem, the Ein Sof is the emanator of the ten sefirot. Sefirot are energy emanations found on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.[4]

    “Ein Sof, the Atik Yomin (“Ancient of Days”), emanates the sefirot into the cosmic womb of the Ayin in a manner that results in the created universe.

    “The three letters composing the word “Ayin” (אי״ן), indicate the first three purely intellectual sefirot, which precede any emotion or action.[5] The order of devolution can be described as:

    000. Ayin (Nothing; אין‬)
    00. Ein Sof (Limitlessness; אין סוף‬)
    0. Ohr Ein Sof (Endless Light; אור אין סוף‬)
    -.Tzimtzum (Contraction; צמצום‬)
    1. Keter (Crown; כתר‬)
    2. Chokhmah (Wisdom; חכמה‬)
    3. Binah (Understanding; בינה‬)
    4. Chesed or Gedulah (Loving Kindness or Mercy; חסד‬)
    5. Gevurah or Din (Power or Judgement; גבורה‬)
    6. Tiferet (Beauty or Compassion; תפארת‬)
    7. Netzach (Triumph or Endurance; נצח‬)
    8. Hod (Majesty or Splendor; הוד‬)
    9. Yesod (Foundation; יסוד‬)
    10. Malchut (Realm; מלכות‬); is also called Kingdom, or Shekhinah, Shekinah, Shechinah.

    Malkuth, Malchut or Malchus, also identified as Shekhinah, is the tenth of the sephirot in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.

    It sits at the bottom of the Tree, below Yesod [this divine feminine attribute of God is on the earthly plane, except sometimes instead of attributes, the sephiroth confusedly become deities depending on the Jewish mystic or ecstatic rabbi].

    This sephirah [Malkut-Shekinah] has as a symbol the Bride which relates to the sphere of Tipheret, symbolized by the Bridegroom/King in the divine plane.”

    You can tie yourself in knots trying to follow and make sense of it, but the kabbalists have indeed eroticized their relation to “Shekinah”.

    The concept of “shekinah” is from the Talmud. It is often identified with the glory of God mentioned in Scripture (Ex. 16:10; 24:16; 40:34), even by Christians, but the Hebrew term for “glory” in Scripture is “kabowd”; “shekinah” is never used.

    In Christianity, the Shekinah means the glory of God, frequently revealed by the symbols of fire and cloud in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, its associated with the indwelling presence of the Spirit of God/Spirit of Christ in the Christian heart — the Emmanuel, God-With-Us (God dwelling or tabernacling with us).

    Although Christians experience the energies of God, including His glory, they never penetrate beyond the cloud to the inner essence of God, which remains hidden.

    On the Judaic side, in neutral terms, the Shekinah appears often in the Babylonian Talmud, and it refers to a manifestation of God or the presence of God. It is likened to the flow of divine energy or the reflected light of God.

    The Talmud says, “Whenever ten are gathered for prayer, there the Shekinah rests” (Sanhedrin 39a), and, “Wheresoever they were exiled, the shekinah went with them” (Megillah 29a).

    In Kabbalah, shekinah is supposed to be the feminine aspect of God.

    Shekinah is supposed to abide in and permeate particular objects such as the Temple Mount.

    Many of those who pray at the western wall of the Temple Mount are trying to connect with God via Shekinah.

    The Zohar identifies the Shekinah with the “sabbath bride” (“Shabbat Hamalka”) who visits those who celebrate the sabbath.

    There is an obvious connection with ancient goddess worship as described in Encyclopedia Mythica using Jewish reference sources:

    “Queen of the Sabbath.” Among the goddesses representing either the female side of Yahweh or his consorts, such as Asherah, Shekhina, Anath, and Lilith, Shabbat Hamalka has a unique personality and origin.

    “Her myth strongly influenced Jewish thought, and contributed to the strength of home and family that had improved the odds for physical and spiritual Jewish survival.

    “The name means Queen of the Sabbath, and the entity is the personification of the Jewish day of rest, Saturday.

    “She still possesses a prominent position in Judaic mythology. For example, Israeli children, even in completely nonreligious surroundings, still sing songs to her every Friday afternoon (in Hebrew “Erev Shabatt” meaning the Sabbath Eve) before the Queen “descends” from Heaven to grace the world for twenty-four hours.

    “When the Jews started their return to Palestine, long before the state of Israel was declared, new mythology had to be created or recreated. Shabbat Hamalka, prominent and romantic, was one of the first candidates.

    “The great National Poet Chaim Nachman Bialik, who was an expert on folklore and mythology, had a lot to do with preserving the image of the Queen in the renewed home of the Jewish People.

    “He invented “Oneg Shabbat,” meaning “Sabbath Joy,” and combined the customs of group study, festive dinner, lectures, and singing of both old and new songs. The custom spread to the United States and is still observed by many.

    “Her origin is extremely ancient, and as the centuries rolled, Shabbat Hamalka acquired magical qualities, combining the character of Queen, Bride, and Goddess.

    “In addition, she took on strong erotic/romantic and cosmic/spiritual significance. The usual Judaic connections to Akkadian myths exist in her image, because the word Shabbat resembles the name of the Akkadian feast of the full moon, Shabbatu.

    “The romantic character of the two holidays also had much in common. For example, marital intercourse on Friday night was considered a sacred duty, exactly like the sacred sexual activity during Shabbatu. However, the Akkadians never had a weekly day of rest – the idea seems to start in the second chapter of Genesis.

    “On Friday night, all the men, representing Yesod, went to receive the Bride in the open fields around town.

    The poetry they recited for the ritualistic greeting included many allusions to the ‘Sacred Apple Orchard,’ a mystical place where God and his consort Shekhina celebrated their union and conceived the Souls of the Just. The connection to Ashera, who was always worshiped in glades and groves, is obvious.

    “Each man returned home to be received by his wife, who represented the Shekhina/Shabbat.

    All other females of the household were also honored on Friday evening.

    “The husband picked up branches of myrtle, the symbol of marriage which was always prepared for weddings as well.

    He then recited Chapter 31, Verses 10-31 of the Book of Proverbs, describing the ‘Woman of Valor,’ and relating the verse mystically to both his wife and Shabbat Hamalka, thus merging their images for the evening in a cosmic/spiritual context.

    “The ritual and festive meal continued well into the night, leading to the hour of midnight, when it was considered a spiritual duty to retire and have a sacred sexual union between husband and wife.

    “Midnight was chosen because according to Kabbalistic tradition, this was the exact time when the highest aspects of the male and the female sides of the [Jewish] godhead performed their own union.

    “Judaism never considered sexual activity to be sinful or distasteful. Nor did it assume it was a pleasure only for the man and a mere duty for the woman, as some other religions or customs did. …

    “Therefore, the mutual feeling of sanctity and love between husband and wife, mirrored in the mystical union between God and Shabbat Hamalka, was essential in establishing the strong Jewish home mentioned above.

    “At the end of the day, the men assembled again, usually at the rabbi’s house, for the ‘Melaveh Malka’ ritual, meaning ‘Farewell to the Queen.’ The ceremony included singing songs in her honor, eating and drinking, and a lecture or discussion.

    “The Queen then departed and the work week, full of hardship and sometimes suffering, was about to begin again.

    “The entire community, however, was always keenly aware that Shabbat Hamalka would never be away from them for more than six days” (Ilil Arbel, “Shabbat Hamalka,” Encyclopedia Mythica).

    Wow. Totally fantastic.

    Never stop fighting guys!

  46. Bud Mattison November 5, 2021 @ 7:21 pm

    Well said.

    Jewish Bankers hate Muslims because Muslim nations don’t allow central banks in, and the Jews hate Christians because they know that Christians are the true chosen people.

    That is why they are constantly busy pitting Christians against Muslims. Divide and conquer.

    They’re good at working both sides of the street.
