In April 2009 the Idaho Observer published an article called, “Revelation and the Rothschild connection,” which was written by Anne Wilder Chamberlain. Now, 9 years later in 2018, it is once again widely being used as propaganda to defend and advance unbiblical teachings such as Covenant theology, Amillennialism and Replacement theology. After I received a number of requests for my opinion on this document, I decided to publish this article on HEAVENLY REMNANT.
The abbreviations used is this article are as follows:
AWC – Idaho Observer / Anne Wilder Chamberlain and their sources
HR – Heavenly Remnant
Amills – Amillennials and those who support Covenant and Replacement theologies
HALF A BIBLE
According to AWS, to support Hitler’s genocidal agenda, the Church hierarchy removed as many as 72 books from the Bible. Ironically, those who support the AWS article are the same ones who choose to be known for following Sola Scriptura. They are also the ones who say that Satan is already bound. I strongly doubt that God would have allowed a single man to remove more than half of His Word, thus leaving all generations subsequent to the Hitler era with less than half a Bible. By believing this lie, they basically give Satan undeserved credit. In addition, with Hitler’s hatred towards the Jews, I am surprised at all of the Scripture he “allowed” to remain, which speaks about God’s positive plans with the nation of Israel.
THE OLD LIE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF DISPENSATIONALISM
AWS says that Christians predominantly believed that all Biblical prophecy had been fulfilled, until some “believers” changed this position in the early 19th century through fearmongering. AWS then also mocks these “believers” as those whose only remaining “hope” is to be raptured off this planet and into heaven before God destroys this wicked world. They call John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) the father of dispensationalism. Ironically, AWS themselve only quotes from books and articles written by Amills in the 19th to 21st centuries to back their unbiblical views.
While modern premillennialism depends upon Scriptural foundations for its apologetic and theological statement, it has nevertheless a significant historical context. It is regrettable that moderate dispensationalism and premillennialism has seldom had fair consideration in historical treatments of Christian doctrine. Peters in his classic work, “The Theocratic Kingdom,” cites no less than fifteen advocates of premillennialism in the first century. While his classification in some cases no doubt is debatable, in others it is undisputed. The notable testimony of Papias, who was associated with the Apostle John, is of special weight. Papias who lived in the first century and the beginning of the second lists as adherents of premillennialism Aristio, John the Presbyter and the Apostles Andrew, Peter, Philip, Thomas, James, John, and Matthew. He certainly was in a position to know their views, and his testimony is an important link in sustaining the fact that the disciples continued in the Jewish expectation of a kingdom on earth. Peters also lists as premillenarians Clement of Rome, Barnabas, Hermas, Ignatius, and Polycarp. In contrast to these clear evidences, not one adherent, not one line of evidence is produced sustaining the idea that any first-century Christians held Augustinian amillennialism—that the interadvent period was the millennial. Further, there is no evidence whatever that premillennialism was even disputed. It was the overwhelming-majority view of the early church.
THE SCOFIELD BIBLE
As always is the case with these twisters of Scripture, AWS also attempted to link dispensationalism to the Scofield Bible. Well, I do have a surprise for them. What I have learned about prophecy and God’s relationship with Israel, I learned from the KJV and related versions of God’s Word. The difference comes in as some believe the Bible exactly as it was given by God, while others add the “wisdom” of men, by applying unverifiable allegorical interpretation.
REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY AND ANTI-SEMITISM
AWS disputes the view of God’s 7,000 years cycle of time and the fulfilment of prophecy regarding the reformation of Israel in 1948. AWS also calls dispensationalist Christian Zionism because they believe that “God is able to graft [the Jews] in again” and to fulfill all the promises made to the genetic seed of Abraham.
AWS also insults the blessing of Isaac in Genesis 27:29 concerning Israel, which reads, “Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee.” According to them, this has fallen away during the curse of Balaam (Numbers 24:9), when “God told Moses that if Israel did not keep His commands and decrees, He would destroy them from the face of the land (Deuteronomy 6:15-16), which he has done twice—In 585 BC and again in 70 AD.”
AWS further states that the “state of Israel,” as a geographical location, was given to Abraham in 2081 BC (Genesis 15:17-21) as part of a covenant. When Jesus came, he brought the new covenant and Israel fell, to be replaced by Christianity. Jesus told His disciples, “This is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” AWS even goes as far as asking the question whether dispensationalist premillennial theology is a Luciferian plan to cause Christians to think if they go against Israel, that they are going against God and delaying the second coming of Christ.
It is HR’s humble opinion that such claims could only be made by the blatant ignorance or twisting of Scripture. Amills always agree with Scripture up to the point where it talks about God’s punishment of Israel but conveniently ignore the rest of Scripture which deals with the physical and spiritual restoration of the Jewish nation. By applying the “wisdom” of man, the make God out as a broker of promises and a liar.
THE ”KHAZARIAN” TOOL
They go on to say that the state of Israel has a connection with the Rothschilds and calls it the “Armageddon plot.” Once again, predictably, the favourite “Khazarian” tool used by Amillennialists is also being applied to all Jews by AWS.
In short, AWS and those who practice Replacement theology use the following story:
“By 1823, the Rothschilds had taken over the financial operations of the Catholic Church worldwide. As the 19th century came to an end, it is estimated that the Rothschild family controlled half the wealth of the world. In 1914, at the start of World War I, they financed the Germans, the British and the French and controlled the three main European news agencies and used them to stir the public into fervour for war. A Rothschild agent then sent a Zionist delegation from America to Britain with a promise to bring America into the war on the side of the British, provided the British agree to give the land of Palestine to the Rothschilds. America entered the First World War on April 6, 1917.
On 2 November 1917, the British Foreign Secretary drafted a letter commonly known as the, “Balfour Declaration,” which gave the House of Rothschild 80 percent of the land now called Israel for “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”
On September 1, 1939, the Second World War started when Germany invaded Poland. Using the slaughter of Jews in Germany to bring hatred against the German people, with this war the Rothschilds would also increase the power of communism to a level equaling that of united Christendom. The war went as planned: $billions were spent, millions were killed and the state of Israel was created. Tribunals were convened after the war to investigate and punish Nazi war criminals. If there was any mention as to which bankers were providing Hitler with financial assistance, that testimony has been edited from the historical record.
In 1945 giant steps towards the Rothschilds’ goal of world domination were achieved when the United Nations was approved. In 1947 the British transferred control of Palestine to the United Nations, which resolved to have Palestine partitioned into two states, one Jewish and one Arab, with Jerusalem to remain as an international zone. In the spring of 1948, the Rothschilds bribed President Harry S. Truman with $2 million in campaign funds to recognize Israel as a sovereign state. The flag of Israel was unveiled and, despite tremendous opposition, the emblem on the flag is a blue colored version of the Rothschild red hexagram.
The House of Rothschild funded the Nazis and then founded Israel, not as a home for Jewish people, but as a base for the terrorists who created that state in order to operate a global terror and political manipulation network. The influence of its intelligence arm, Mossad, is vast for this tiny country because it is funded by the Rothschild global power elite. The motto of the Mossad is probably the most disgusting secret service motto in the world: “By way of deception, thou shalt do war.
Political Zionism is an agency of Big Business. It is being used by Jewish and Christian financiers in this country and Great Britain, to make Jews believe that Palestine will be ruled by a descendant of King David who will ultimately rule the world. What delusion! It will lead to war between Arabs and Jews and eventually to war between Muslims and non-Muslims. That will be the turning point of history.
Genuine Jewish people are being used. Jewish leadership has perverted the idea of a holy people chosen to advocate morality into a ‘self chosen’ elite to take God’s place. But when critics suggest that the ‘chosen’ are being misled and betrayed, they are accused of being ‘anti-Semitic’ and charged with ‘hate-crimes.’”
HR is of the opinion that if this is actual history, then so be it – it does not change God’s prophecy about the return of the Jews to their land and the creation of their state “in one day” (Isaiah 66:8). As a matter of fact, who can say that God didn’t use the provided piece of history to achieve the fulfilment of this prophecy? Remember, Satan cannot do anything if God doesn’t allow him to. God often allow the devil to exercise his evil plans and then turns it around and uses it for His own purposes and glory.
PROPHECIES AND THE FALL OF JERUSALEM IN 70 AD
According to them, the book of Revelation was not written about 95 or 96 AD, but written prior to the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. They say that the prophesies of Isaiah, Joel and Daniel and of Jesus in Luke 21 and Matthew 24 therefore refer to the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. They believe that their theory is backed by words such as “distant future” and “imminent” (going to happen “before the end of this [Jesus’] generation”). According to AWS there is nothing in the Bible, indicating that Christ will return to begin a one thousand-year reign upon a literal throne in the Middle East and save us from this evil world. AWS further mocks the idea of an Antichrist and the warnings against radio frequency identification (RFID) tags that could relate to “the mark of the beast.” AWS says, “Rather than recognizing typical metaphorical biblical prophesy of “the sun being darkened and the moon not giving light,” Sellers calls it, “A period of seven years of disaster that will end with Christ’s defeat of evil at Armageddon.”
They say that the “end of the age” referred to in Revelation and Matthew is the same as that spoken of in Daniel but it refers to the end of the old covenant between God and Israel, made with Abraham. According to them, the Apostle Paul was saying that this covenant had expired (Galatians 4:31-5:2), as Paul completed his mission to bring the word of God to “all the earth.” (Romans 10:18; Colossians 1:5-6; Titus 2:11).
AWS even tried to show a tie between the “sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind [that] filled all the house….and appeared unto them cloven tongues as of fire (Acts 2:2)” and “the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory….with a great sound of a trumpet (Matt. 24:30-31)” In HR’s opinion this is an excellent example of how Amills would go to any extremes in twisting holy Scripture to defend their unbiblical theology and eschatology.
Irenaeus (A.D. 180), a student of Polycarp (who was a disciple of the apostle John), wrote that the apocalyptic vision “was seen not very long ago, almost in our own generation, at the close of the reign of Domitian” (Against Heresies 30). The testimony of Irenaeus, not far removed from the apostolic age, is first rate. He places the book near the end of Domitian’s reign, and that ruler died in A.D. 96. Irenaeus seems to be unaware of any other view for the date of the book of Revelation.
Clement of Alexandria (A.D. 155-215) says that John returned from the isle of Patmos “after the tyrant was dead” (Who Is the Rich Man? 42), and Eusebius, known as the “Father of Church History,” identifies the “tyrant” as Domitian (Ecclesiastical History III.23).
Victorinus (late third century), author of the earliest commentary on the book of Revelation also agreed with the date of 95 / 96 AD.
The contents of the book of Revelation also suggest a late date, as the following observations indicate. The spiritual conditions of the churches described in Revelation chapters two and three more readily harmonize with the late date. The church in Ephesus, for instance, was not founded by Paul until the latter part of Claudius’s reign: and when he wrote to them from Rome, A.D. 61, instead of reproving them for any want of love, he commends their love and faith (Ephesians 1:15) (Horne 1841, 382).
NO GREAT TRIBULATION EXPECTED
AWS tells us that Daniel 9:24-27 refers to the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of Prince Titus in 70 AD. His “desolations” and the “tribulation” in Matthew 24:29 refer to the judgment of Judah (part of Israel) for persecuting the saints.
In Matthew 24:21 says, “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Many worse things happened in the world since the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD and what is described in Revelation 6-19 would make the 70 AD event look like a Sunday school picnic.
JESUS, THE “ANTICHRIST”
AWS makes a ridiculous remark about Daniel 9:27 which reads, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.” They say that the “he” in this verse refers to Christ when, after 3 1/2 years of ministry (midweek), he died on the cross and became the ultimate sacrifice.
If only AWS had read the previous verse (26) they would have noticed that the “he” is the “prince” to come to destroy, namely the Antichrist, Daniel 7:26 says, ““And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined.”
THE TERM “ANTICHRIST”
According to AWS, the term “antichrist” is only listed in the Bible three times (I John 2:18, I John 4:3 and II John:7). They therefore question the motive of Christians who “denounce and demonize” the United Nations, Europeans, Russia, Iraq, Muslims, the media, liberals, freethinkers and international bankers as those who will team up with the Antichrist. Furthermore, AWS clearly doesn’t understand the prophetic reference as they also argue that Babylon is already “a ruins.”
Although the Apostle John was the only Bible writer to use the name antichrist, he did not only used the word “antichrists” when he spoke about false prophets and teachers. 1 John 4:3 says, “And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming and is now already in the world.” In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 the Antichrist is called the Man of Sin. Revelation 13:5-8 calls the Antichrist “the beast.” In Daniel’s prophetic vision of end days, he described the Antichrist as “a little horn” in chapters 7, 8 and 11.
But typically to the hypocrisy and “copy and paste” style of Amills , much later in their article, AWS change their tune and said, “the Zionism, Freemasonry, organized Jewry, Imperialism, Jesuits, Vatican, Intelligence agencies, mass media, etc. are among countless octopus arms. Its motive is to protect its priceless but fraudulent private monopoly over public (government) credit (money creation). It needs a ‘world government’ to protect its unlimited wealth and power. It’s ideology of world tyranny, Illuminism…. preaches that man (i.e. the bankers) can usurp the place of God and redefine truth,” destroying Christianity, nation-states and family by promoting homosexuality and promiscuity and the end of inheritance and private property. Christians must recognize that the teachings of Jesus have been subverted to suit the cause of a satanic cult determined to destroy civilization and institute a violent police state. It has banished God from public life and placed itself as the regent “governing authority” in top political seats and in church hierarchies worldwide.”
So what AWS is actually doing, is acknowledging that their will be an Antichrist system called “Babylon.” As long as we do not call it part of unfulfilled end time Bible prophecy!!
THE THIRD WORLD WAR
According to AWS, the third world war would be played out by stirring up hatred of the Muslim world for the purposes of playing the Islamic world and the Zionists against one another. While this is going on, the remaining nations would be forced to fight themselves into a state of mental, physical, spiritual and economic exhaustion. Organized Jewry and its Masonic allies are following this script, based on end times biblical prophesies. It calls for mass destruction of all people. The New World Order would then rise from the debris.
AWS says that the Cabalists (students of the Jewish Cabala) are the actual anti-Semites. Set up as scapegoats for the diabolical few, duped Jews cover for the Rothschilds, who have suppressed normal Jewish cultural/spiritual expression while hijacking the Jewish people via “anti-Semitism” into advancing their Illuminati banker plan for world government dictatorship.
Once again, we see the hypocrisy of the Amills. They disagree on the reality of an Antichrist with a “Babylonian” system, but that is exactly what AWS is describing here.
In addition, if the Cabalists are the actual anti-Semites, then Amills are indirectly advancing the course of the Cabalists!!
THE 144,000 “GOOD” CHRISTIANS
AWS mockingly refers to the 144,000 Jews in Revelation as the “good guys,” or “a phalanx of 144,000 Jews who accept Jesus.” They say that prominent Christian leaders condemned this story as “unscholarly” and a “perversion” of the Bible.
The fact that the 144,000 are specifically linked to the twelve tribes of Israel is never taken into consideration when Amills touch on this issue.
AWS further says that John Nelson Darby created the idea of the rapture, and sarcastically refers to the rapture as the “two second comings of Christ.” AWS specifically rejects the fact that 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 refers to a rapture. They argue that Jesus’ prophesies and those of the Old Testament refer exclusively to the Jews of that day, for whom the resurrection was extremely important, not to the Gentiles at some indistinct future time. “Darby’s difficulty was solved by assuming that the Gospels were addressed partly to Jews and partly to Christians.”
AWS makes the statement that the popularity of dispensationalism and its corresponding “rapture” theory has declined sharply since the 1970’s due to what they call “notorious corruption in evangelical organizations and because many of today’s Christians recognize the “rapture” is not in the Bible.”
An in-depth study of Bible prophecy provides many indications of a rapture (but this is an entire subject on its own.) Amills hardly ever knowledge that the doctrine of the rapture is built on many other pieces of Scripture as well, other than 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17.
AWS ends its article with the following paragraph: “As Christians, we are obligated to research the origins of our beliefs; no longer can we accept—on faith alone—what we have been taught regarding end times theology. An Idaho Baptist elder recently said that we must change our hearts to be open to what God wants us to do; get quiet, away from life’s clutter as Jesus did and listen. Then act. We have something the NWO doesn’t have and that is Love. We must focus on that.”
From a Pre-millennial point of view, that is exactly what we are also pleading and praying for. The only thing I would like to add as part of my conclusion, is the fact that our love should also include a truth and a love for God’s Word, without adding to or taking away from it, the way Amills do.
It is interesting to see how Amills always blatantly ignores the detailed content of Romans 11, Zechariah 12-14, Joel 3 and many other prophetic passages which relate to God’s plan for the nation of Israel.
Furthermore, they never refer to Revelation 22, as it totally destroys their believe that the book of Revelation is not a prophetic book that relates to the second coming of Christ.
Let us refrain from the deception and propaganda spread by Amills. They are not seeking for truth, but only for the approval of their man made theologies.
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
