The Contemptible King

The following is from a chapter from a book i am working on.  It’s a basic rough draft but given the shortness of the time I want to put as much out as I can.  Please feel free to comment or critcize as you feel the need to.

Messianic Crazy

Wherever one turns, mankind appears to be in the throes of Apocalyptic trepidation, Messianic fervor, and End of Time anxiety.Religious fanaticism manifests itself in wars, rebellions, and the slaughter of infidels. Armies amassed by leaders of the West are warring with armies of the of the East. Carnage engulfs cities and towns; the high and the mighty seek safety behind protective walls.

It appears that a clash of civilizations is at hand.  East versus West, Religion against Religion, one political system against another, brother against brother.  But it is all subterfuge, obfuscation. Smoke and mirrors.

Realistically a clash of civilizations is taking place, but it is one which has  been created purposely by a cabal of influential families, the super wealthy and powerful. It is not coming about due to some Divine Plan, but is a planned coup d tat by unscrupulous fanatical men.

Biblical prophecy from our point of view is the result of an interaction between man and the Sentient Conscienceness of the Universe (called God or the Universal Will): God established an order for harmonious living for humanity.  Man decides he would rather go it alone.  Certain despotic leaders – politicians, captains of industry, religious figureheads, ect,. then decide to create their own version of Utopia, a New World Order, outside the parameters established by God. Thier agenda creates chaos and suffering on a massive global scale.  The Biblical Prophecy is triggered to preserve humanity.

Paradigm shifts for nations, cultures and civilizations cannot occur on their own through attrition, but are heralded in through a charismatic messianic leader who can mesmerize populations to accept a new ideology, even one which may ultimately lead to their own destruction.  Two of the most notable messianic leaders of the last few centuries is Napolean who led Europe into the so-called Age of Enlightenment, and Adolf Hitler, whom we will discuss in more detail.

Money Power Promoting the Messianic Complex

Unknown to most people is that war-time messianic leaders are funded by the same cabal of influential families over and over again. These notable families control the financial institutions of the world including the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the Bank Nationale Paris, and the Bank of Italy, and have financed and propped up every ‘messianic’ war leader of the last 200 years who was viewed as a deliverer:

Napoleon

Lenin & Stalin- 40 million Russians exterminated

Adolf Hitler- 6 million Jews exterminated

Mao Tse Tung- 60 million Chinese exterminated.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt- NWO puppet

Barak Hussien Obama- intimately tied to the international bankers.

Enter the New Messiah

The individual identified as Barak Obama is quite frankly a profound mystery, an enigma which appears to have been purposely crafted at the highest levels of oligarchy, and presented to the world and specifically to America, to bring about a civilization level paradigm shift.  He is a man with a destiny, though not of his own making but, to bring about a change in the affairs of human government.

While this may sound epic and historic, the truth is far from the noble endeavors suited for great leaps of progress.  Rather, the ascendancy of Barak Obama are the machinations of tyrants and small minded men, set on domination and cruel slavery.

In looking at Barak Obama in the sense of prophetic fulfilment, the enigma grows even more.  As I studied the biblical texts concerning the coming of the contemptuous world leader spoken of by Daniel, I was amazed at the level of fulfilment and at the same time bewildered concerning how easily the people of America were decieved.

How could the American public be so duped by a smooth talking flim flam man from Chicago, without so much as a proper vetting regarding the man who would have his finger on the nuclear trigger?

It appears that his ascendancy was a well orchestrated coup d tat.  The fact is that conditions in America and the world were conducive for the appearance of a young messianic leader.  In fact not only were they conducive, but those conditions were brought on by careful planning and manipulation of the political, financial, and religious institutions.

But the most intriguing and ultimately the most dangerous is that this man is strangely characterized by a profound alignment found in one of the oldest religious traditions on the planet. More than 2500 years ago, a prince of the Jewish people foretold of a wicked leader who would seek to destroy the Jewish people and would desire to change the times and law. The literal reading actually says that he would,“…hope to change the times and law…” key wording of the 2008 Obama Hope & Change campaign platform.

The New Amerikan Paradigm

Barack Obama has a messiah complex.  This is not supposition but a well established pattern. And many people think that he is a messiah figure, particularly Black America.

The day after Barack Obama was elected president, Larry Younginer knelt in front of the congregants at his East Pointe suburban Atlanta congregation and offered a prayer of thanks:

“Lord, we have again come to you in prayer, and you have heard our cries from heaven, and you have sent us again from the state called Illinois, a man called Barack to heal our land…”We pray that you will build a hedge around him that will protect him from those who would do him harm.”

Younginer, like many others was convinced that Obama was destined to be president. The mere fact that he won the presidency against the odds has caused some Christians, particularly African-Americans, to see the hand of God in his victory after so many years of struggle.

Regarding the messianic credentials of Obama, Lawrence Carter, Dean of the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel said:

“It is powerful and significant on a spiritual level that there is the emergence of Barack Obama 40 years after the passing of Dr. King,” said Carter. “No one saw him coming, and Christians believe God comes at us from strange angles and places we don’t expect, like Jesus being born in a manger.”

“The Amateur,” a new book by Edward Klein’s quotes  David Axelrod, President Obama’s  former senior campaign adviser, as saying Barack Obama is the ‘Black Jesus’  because of his messiah complex:“[Barack Obama] is the living, breathing apotheosis of the American melting pot,” Klein quotes Axelrod as saying.

And the adoring mainstream bought and sold media loves to promote him as such. All during the 2008 presidential campaign, the media ramped up the messianic hype surrounding Barack Obama.

In June 2009, Newsweek editor Evan Thomas responded to Obama’s Cairo speech by telling Chris Matthews:

Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn’t felt that way in recent years. So Obama’s had, really, a different task We’re seen too often as the bad guys. And he – he has a very different job from – Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is ‘we are above that now.’ We’re not just parochial, we’re not just chauvinistic, we’re not just provincial. We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God…

The leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, referred to Barak Obama as “the messiah” before a crowd of Black Muslims:

“You are the instruments that God is gonna use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

Chris Matthews of MSNBC puts the phenomenon of Obama on the scale of christian scripture, telling the NY Observer that “I’ve been following politics since I was about 5. I’ve never seen anything like this. This is bigger than Kennedy. [Obama] comes along, and he seems to have the answers. This is the New Testament. This is surprising.”

According to Klein, Micah Tillman, lecturer in philosophy at the Catholic University of America, called Obama “the Platonic philosopher king we’ve been looking for the past 2,400 years,” elevating him even above Jesus, the so-called christian Messiah.

And Oprah Winfrey has called him “The One.  In Des Moines, Iowa, during the 2008 Presidential Campaign, Winfrey said, “For the very first time in my life, I feel compelled to stand up and to speak out for the man who I believe has a new vision for America,” and told the audience of 15,000 said, “I am here to tell you, Iowa, he is the one. He is the one!”

A 2010 Newsweek cover depicted Obama as “god of all things” in a pose reminiscent of the Hindu deity Shiva.

In a 2008 article by Jake Tapper, in which he wrote:

It’s as if Tom Daschle descended from on high saying, “Be not afraid; for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: for there is born to you this day in the city of Chicago a Savior, who is Barack the Democrat.”

The Obama/Hitler Cult of Personality

The hysteria surrounding Barak Obama’s rise to power have frightening parallels with Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Obama’s phenomenal ascension is unique in American politics. No American politician has made such an impression on Americans. He receives admiration and adoration from his admirers on an unprecedented level, reminiscent of worship but with a messianic flare. Obama effect on the unprecedented crowds who flock to his public speeches appear to be in an almost trance-like state.

Hitler’s charisma and oratory skills,  both inspired and elevated the masses. Hitler himself believed that he was anointed or chosen (a messiah) and his  destiny was to lead Germany to glory and institute a new social order for the world.

Obama seems to exude the confidence of an anointed one and the certainty of a true believer regarding his own greatness. When asked by an interviewer if he ever had doubts about his foreign policy experience, Obama replied, “Never.”

The Nazis party held rallies which created a religious tone. Hitler’s appearance was carefully crafted to give the impression of divine favor. His propaganda machine, projected Hitler as the messiah of the fatherland – Germany. An American who had visited Germany at the time of Hitler’s ascendance to power observed, “They think Hitler is God.”

Consider the election of both leaders. Both men were brought to power in an atmosphere of economic insecurity and instability. Just months before President Obama’s election, the mortgage and credit markets of the United States crashed.

Then Treasury Secretary Paulson then lied an told the country that we were on the edge of an “economic abyss.”  President George W. Bush made repeated media appearances suggesting we were in danger of finding ourselves in another Great Depression if we did not act quickly, another lie. Americans saw the Dow Jones Index lose over half its value and many people lost a significant portion of their savings.

The situation in the Weimar Republic of Germany was much the same. Hitler assumed power amid growing public disenchantment with the Versailles Peace Treaty whose provisions crippled the country with huge reparations payments, climbing debt, and skyrocketing inflation. The result was that millions of Germans lost their savings.

In 2007 America experienced the most serious recession since the Wall Street collapse of the 1929 which triggered the Great Depression. In a time of extreme economic chaos, each candidate offered his nation the promise of a return to economic normalcy.

Both Hitler and Obama appealed to their citizenry’s cry for political change. Each man symbolized hope for an idealized future. By the end of President Bush’s second term, a majority of the US population did not approve the manner in which the administration had handled the War in Iraq. Bush was viewed in negative terms around the world and the US had lost standing globally because of this perception.

Hitler’ candidacy was seen as an opportunity to correct the failed German experiment with democracy. The Weimar government was seen by most voters as weak. Successive chancellors had acquiesced to a series of humiliating international demands including a French occupation of the industrial Ruhr Valley, internationally imposed limits on the size of their military, and a schedule of reparations that would reach to the year 1987. In contrast, Hitler stood for reoccupying the Ruhr Valley, rescheduling the debt, defending German minorities living in other countries, rebuilding the army, and returning Germany to its “rightful place” among European powers. Candidate Obama promised responsible spending, an end to the war in Iraq, and an improved American image around the world.

Adoring media in each country celebrated each man as a saviour, a messianic leader. A sycophantic Bought and Sold Media described Mr. Obama as The One, a term initially used by Oprah Winfrey to identify the new American Messiah King.

Adolph Hitler was also portrayed as a German messiah, sent to lead his nation out of bondage. Both were hailed more as heaven sent redeemers and less like less politicians seeking the highest office in their respective countries and. The consensus in both countries immediately after the elections was a general feeling that everything would be “different”” under the new leader.

Both men were seen as young and energetic, and able to bring new ideas, a new vision for the country. Hitler’s campaign slogan was, “Everything must be different!” Obama claimed that he would “fundamentally transform” America.

Both leader’s created an added layer of bureaucrats, answerable only to them. In the U.S., President Obama appointed some three dozen “czars,” who were to oversee areas of governance previously under the supervision of cabinet secretaries and accountable only to Obama and outside the purview of Congress.

Chancellor Hitler as well created czar-like positions for political appointees who were responsible only to him. In fact, Hitler’s cabinet convened only once during his 12 years in power. In both governments, these czars were intentionally given overlapping and competing areas of responsibility. Constant bickering and turf battles were encouraged as this engendered a sense of reliance upon, and loyalty to, the chancellor or president as the final arbiter in these disputes.

Both regimes obsessed with healthcare, their shared commitment to the notion of public health at the expense of private wealth, their political and economic partnership with big business, their devotion to radical environmentalism, their desire to create a civilian army to serve the state, their fondness for large orchestrated events where adoring followers pledge themselves to their leader, their use of crises as a political tool, their willingness to demonize enemies and portray them as dangerous to the nation, their shared interest in animal rights, their obsessive focus on youth both as a tool of propaganda and as an audience for it, and finally their shared commitment to the use of informants.

Other notable similarities are:

Hitler promised to change the world, to create a new social order and to go after the allegedly wealthy Jews who he claimed were responsible for the suffering of the average German. Obama employs some of the same utopian us against them rhetoric when he talks about taxing the rich.

Hitler created a Gestapo, a national police force that would crack down on a dis-armed and defenceless population at will. In a speech he delivered at Colorado Springs on July 2, 2008, Obama called for a national police force. In that speech he said: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Hitler rose to power with the help of a small group of influential  disreputable men who shared his political outlook and worldview. This is a biblical characteristic outlined in the Book of Daniel which we shall develop later.

Obama changes the American Flag to the ancient symbol of Horus Sun worship as a campaign logo. Hitler changes the German Flag to the ancient symbol of Black Sun worship, the Swastika. Both leaders had been surrounded by numerous controversies concerning birth certificate, citizenship and religion. Obama’s real family identity and his name Soetoro gets buried by the Bought & Sold Media.

 Obama tries to conceal his Muslim Faith and Foreign Citizenship by manipulating his Birth Certificate. Hitler’s real family identity and his Jewish name Schickelgruber gets buried by the adoring media. Hitler tries to conceal his Jewish roots by entering Austria and chasing down his Birth Certificate.

Hitler established the Hitler Youth that sang songs of nationalism praising the Fuhrer. Obama has a chain gang Youth Group singing Alpha Omega blindly praising Barak Obama on Youtube.

Obama has George Soros and the Illuminati Kings (the Rothschilds) as financial backers. Prescott Bush (Union Bank) and the Rothschild’s were the financial backers of Hitlers regime.History shows that Hitler used voter fraud and poll manipulation to gain power. Minister Joseph Goebbels controlled  all News Media in Germany and the countries occupied by the Nazi regime. Obama has used voter fraud and poll manipulation which will be highlighted in a future chapter.

Hitler  was also responsible for the false flag burning of the Reichstag in 1933, an act which ended the German democracy and consolidated all power in the hands of Hitler and the Nazi Party. If we follow the pattern, Obama could initiate a false flag for the same results.  There are some very consistent reports that such a scenario is at least being discussed within the inner circle at the Department of Homeland Security, according to an inside source.  Is it credible?  Thats anyones guess, but we should not rule it out.

Who is this Man?

All this spoken of a man, who came out of no where, who has spent 5 million dollars in legal fees to hide his personal records.

America has a right to know who it is who has taken control of our nation, including his personal background, his legal records, his school records and any record which gives us insight into what his motivations are and where his loyalties lie.

We don’t care what the pundits say and we don’t care what Oprah Winfrey has to say.  We want proof.   Who is this man who has his finger on the nuclear trigger and occupies the most powerful office in the world?

We are living in trying times. Times which test the convictions people adhere to.  We are living in an era which is being fundamentally transformed.  The Globalist Agenda has accelerated in recent years and particularly in the last four years. They are determined to create a Global Government.

The Christian prophetic tradition which has dominated the media in the West has portrayed the end time despot who they call Anti-Christ as a person who is imbued with immense political power who is basically the devil’s imp.   This person is all-powerful and only God can destroy him. While this popular view is prevalent it lacks biblical support.  The book of Daniel, the pre-eminent biblical text on the End of Days, portrays this person not as an all-potent tyrant but as a figure-head, a puppet in the control of a small group of powerful puppet-masters.

The prophetic book of Daniel clearly states that this end-time despot comes to power through the workings of a small but extremely powerful elite:

“And in the latter times…when transgressors have completed their transgression, there shall stand up a king of fierce countenance, understanding stratagems. And his power shall be mighty, but not of his own power…”

“And after the league made with him shall work deceitfully; and he shall come up and be strong with the help of a small group.”

Daniel clearly is showing that the one that Christianity calls Anti-Christ is under the control of a powerful cabal of powerful and influential people.  This group we believe is known by many monikers: The New World Order, the Money Trust, the Money Power, The Illuminati and so on.  We believe Christian (and Islamic) ideology and theology has obscured the landscape to what is actually taking place.

We shall also show that the United States was overthrown from it’s inception by the forces of what is now known as the Illuminati and most of it’s presidents are connected by bloodline to one another or are agents of this powerful cabal.  With this said it is very likely that Barak Hussien Obama is part of those blood lines.  He most definitely is an agent of theirs as our evidence will show.

Many religious traditions speak of a man who would take power in the last days.  A man of low moral character, a tyrant unfit for the office which he holds.  The prophet Daniel calls him the Contemptible King.  He bears a striking affinity to Barak Obama.

Obama Coup De Tat Continues

Obama Trying to Cripple the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has been hearing arguments about the constitutionality of Obamacare, and nearly all of the analysis seems to show that their is a good chance that our Supreme Court will block the federal government from seizing more power.

Predictably, liberals are furious that the court may deny them new unlimited power.  Their tactic is to call into question the very legitimacy of the Supreme Court.  They are claiming that because many important cases have recently been decided on 5-4 lines with Justice Kennedy siding with the 4 constitutional constructionist judges that the court is no longer “impartial.”  They are calling into question the integrity and objectivity of loyal public servants at the highest level.

Adam Liptak has stated in The New York Times: “Should a bare majority of justices composed solely of the court’s Republican-appointed members strike down a Democratic president’s signature legislative achievement, the public perception of the court may be altered.” Some scholars are already wondering how much damage, if any, a party-line ruling striking down the disastrous Obamacare law would do to the court’s prestige, authority and legitimacy.”

Several facts buttress these scholars’ concerns. First, the current court’s decisions are seldom unanimous, and  some are bitterly divided. Second, the court is closely balanced between a quite conservative bloc and a relatively more liberal bloc. Also,  ideological divisions on the current court perfectly line up with political partisanship seen in the Congress – for the first time in many decades, all Democrats on the court are relatively liberal, and all Republicans are relatively conservative.

The American people can stomach principled ideological disagreements, but they hate partisanship in law and politics. Partisanship poisons the water and is the reason many of us detest politicians (I personally would prefer to drop them into a deep hole and cover it to keep them away from us civil human beings – let them battle between themselves where they can’t do much harm).

Within the poisonous context of a highly polarized presidential election, a health-care decision decided by five Republican justices against four Democratic judges will be so easy to caricature, that it is a sure bet that many politicians will not shirk from attacking the court on partisan terms. And President Obama has himself also shown only limited restraint in challenging the Supreme Court for its decisions (e.g., on Citizens United). It is little wonder that legal observers see the court as quite vulnerable.

This, of course, is part of the Power Elites agenda to create conditions for an Amerikan coup de tat.  By de-legitimizing the Supreme Court, they can sidestep any legal restraint that the court would impose and replace it with one of their liking, more in line with their totalitarian desires.

Arm yourselves, the war is coming.

Kristallnacht – Lessons in History

Night of the Broken GlassNovember 9-10 marks the anniversary of the Nazi pogrom known as Kristallnacht when the Nazi’s terrorized the Jews of Germany with violent attacks  throughout the German Reich and in the  Sudetenland.  In actuality, the pogrom began on November 8 and continued until November 11 (in  Hannover and the free city of Danzig, which had not then been  incorporated into the Reich). There followed associated operations: mass arrests, detention in concentration camps, and a wave of so-called  aryanization orders, which completely eliminated Jews from German  economic life.  The  pogrom passed into history as Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass).

Events Leading Up to Kristallnacht

The other ordinances added to the Reich Citizenship Law, dated November 14-28, 1935, sought to define who exactly was considered  Jewish.  It also created a basis for measures limiting the scope of Jewish occupations and the opportunities for young Jews to get an education. Following the Anschluss (annexation) of Austria in March of 1938,  200,000 Austrian Jews were brought under German control and exclusion of Jews from the economy began first through the removal of Jewish manufacturers and business chiefs and their replacement by “commissars” in charge of “aryanization,” the expropriation of Jewish owned businesses.From January to October 1938, the Nazis aryanized 340 middle-sized and small industrial enterprises, 370 wholesale firms, and 22 private banks owned by Jews. The November Kristallnacht pogrom was the peak of a series of events intended to expel the Jews from economic life and to force a hurried emigration.

Adolf HitlerThe Fourth Decree (July 25, 1938) under the Reich Citizenship Law deprived Jewish doctors, as of September 30, of their practices among Jewish patients. An edict by the police president of Breslau dated July 21 ordered that shops and businesses belonging to Jews should bear a notice: “Jewish Firm.” Air Ministry political-economic guidelines of October 14, 1938 were accompanied by a recommendation, summed up by Hermann Goring (then head of the ministry): “The Jewish question must now be grasped in every way possible, for they [Jews] must be removed from the economy.”

Herman Goring was in favor of the creation of Jewish ghettos in German towns. His words gave notice of a general anti-Jewish offensive in the coming weeks. The triggering of the pogrom can be attributed to the fatal wounding of the German diplomat Ernst vom Rath on November 7th 1938 in Paris by a 16-year-old Polish Jew Herschel Grynszpan.

The Night of the Broken Glass

During Kristallnacht, at least 267 synagogues were burned down or destroyed, and in many cases the ruins were blown up and cleared away. Approximately 7,500 Jewish businesses

kristallnacht

Night of the Broken Glass

were plundered or laid waste. At least 177 apartment blocks or houses were destroyed by arson or otherwise.  More than 30,000 Jews were sent to detention camps.  36 Jews were openly murdered.  It is hard to grasp the hatred that could compel so many to unrestrained violence and murder.  Germany had been the home to many Jews for over 900 years.  The Jewish presence in Germany had help establish Germany’s high culture.  In one night all that was wiped away.

Historical Patterns

Most are not aware of the historical religious connections to the Nazi’s Kristallnacht Pogrom.  Almost all the measures taken against the Jews during Kristallnacht and through World War Two stem from idea’s developed almost four centuries ago.   For the last 1900 years, the Church has been seen as the Jewish Peoples most enduring enemy.  Granted, for centuries, the Catholic Church persecuted and exiled Jews and Judaism.  There were even attacks on Jews and Jewish villages, torture and public burnings and innumerable other hate crimes that could be leveled at the Church.  But the Catholic Church is not directly responsible for the Kristallnacht pogrom, though it certainly lent itself to the air of Jewish animosity which has most assuredly affected numerous Christians and their families including various Christian denominations.

Martin Luthers Legacy

On November 9-10 1938, on the birthday of Martin Luther, the so-called Father of the Reformation, the Nazi’s Kristallnacht Pogrom set in motion the agenda of Martin Luther’s work, “The Jews and thier Lies” – written in 1543 some 400 years before the Nazi’s committed  the genocide of over 6 million Jews in their hideous ‘Jewish Solution.’   In his work, ‘The Jews and thier Lies’, Martin Luther displays his virulent and hated filled anti-Semitism – “What then shall we Christians do with this damned, rejected race of Jews?”  His advice to Christians is summed up in a few points which he outlines as follows

  •  Thier synagogues should be set on fire…..this should be done for the honor of God and Christianity
  • Thier homes should be broken down and destroyed
  • They should be put under one roof or stables, like gypsies in order that they realize that they are not masters in our land…
  • They should be deprived of their prayer books and Talmuds in which such idolatry, lies, cursing and blasphemy are taught.
  • Thier rabbi’s must be forbidden under threat of death to teach anymore…
  • Passport and traveling privledges should be absolutely forbidden to Jews.  For they have no business in the rural districts, since they are not nobles, nor officials, nor merchants…
  • Let the government deal with them in this respect, as I have suggested….but whether the government acts or not let everyone be guided by his own conscience and form for himself a definition or image of a Jew.  When you lay eyes on or think of a Jew, you must say to yourself:  Alas, the mouth that I behold has cursed and execrated and maligned every Saturday my dear Lord Jesus Christ….

As one can see, many of the above points of advice that Martin Luther gives to the Christians of his day was enacted and carried out by the Nazi regime:

  • the burning of synagogues, Torahs, Talmuds and personal homes
  • They were herded into Ghettos and Concentration Camps
  • Many rabbi’s were tortured and killed, not to mention the millions of other innocent Jewish men women and children
  • The German government enacted laws which restricted, prohibited or outlawed Jewish travel, business and education.
  • It should be noted that Luther’s encouraged citizens to act against the Jewish people if the government would not.

As a matter of survival Jews and Judaism should never forget the treatment that we received at the hands of the Christian Church, be it Catholic or part of the Protestant Reformation.  History has a way of repeating itself if we lose sight of it.   One story that has stuck with me for many years was that during World War Two, there was a railway that ran past a Lutheran church in some nameless German town.  The Nazi’s used that rail to transport Jews to the concentration camps on a daily basis.  As the train drew closer to the Church, the congregants would sing louder in order to drown out the loud engine, which they knew carried hundreds of doomed Jews to their deaths in the ovens and gas chambers.

During a crucial time period, when the Christian Church could have done something about the Jewish Genocide being perpetrated in Germany, the response was deafening.  Instead of organizing the great numbers of admitted Christians into a formidable force, the response was to do nothing at all.  Many of the Church leaders in the Reich were crippled by fear.

There were however shining lights within the Christian community.  Men such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of the few church leaders who stood in courageous opposition to the Fuehrer and his policies until his death in the Flossenbürg concentration camp in 1945.  Israel remembers him as one of the righteous gentiles from among the nations, may his name be for a blessing.

In this crucial time we find ourselves in, when the holocaust deniers are not simply crazy Nazi sympathizers, but heads of State, let us not forget the lessons of history and the key players who were responsible for laying out the plans of our destruction.  Already we see the rising anti-Semitism coming from old enemies and some new.

 

Remember……A single lit candle can dispel much darkness.  Be a light in a world that grows ever dark with every moment……..Remember the past for the sake of our future.

“I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you.”
