Sabbateanism is the matrix of every significant movement to have emerged in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, from Hasidism, to Reform Judaism, to the earliest Masonic circles and revolutionary idealism. The Sabbatean "believers" felt that they were champions of a new world which was to be established by overthrowing the values of all positive religions .” – Gershom Scholem

  • This world was created by God and He retains the ownership of it. Psalms 24:1

  • God gave mankind the authority to manage the earth. Genesis 1:26-29

  • Mankind rebelled and fell into sin, and instead of being blessed, man became cursed. God decided to exterminate all people. Genesis 6:1-8

  • Only eight people survived after the flood. When they disobeyed God, He scattered them to every part of dry land on the earth. Genesis 11:1-9

  • Then God divided them up into nations and set the boundaries for them. (Acts 17:24-27; Deuteronomy 32:8) From the days of Nimrod until now, people and boundaries have been shifted around by man.

  • Abraham came from Ur; he lived in Haran until God called him to live in Canaan. He promised the land to Abrahams descendants. Genesis 12:1-7; 17:8

  • God promised that Abraham would be the father of many nations. Genesis 17:4-6

  • God specifically told the children of Israel that they could only possess the land of Canaan as long as they were walking with Him. Deuteronomy 28:47-68; Genesis 17:8-9

  • The Bible records that the land of Israel was lost in two stages. The 12 tribes were split into two kingdoms. (1 Kings 11:9-13) The 10 Northern tribes formed a kingdom called Israel with its capital as Samaria and the 2 Southern tribes formed a kingdom called Judah with its capitol Jerusalem.

  • The Northern Kingdom was taken into captivity by King Sargon of Assyria in 721 BC and the land was settled by strangers. (2 Kings 17:1-41) Later some remnants filtered back into the land and intermarried with gentiles and were given the name Samaritans because they were half Hebrew and half gentile.

  • The inhabitants of the Southern Kingdom became known as Jews. John 4:1-43

  • The Babylonian army invaded the Southern kingdom in 587 BC.

  • God used King Cyrus of Persia to allow the Jews back into Jerusalem after He had destroyed Babylon. The Jews were never able to regain full control of the land or the sovereignty of Jerusalem.

  • From 587 BC, Canaan was ruled by Gentile empires which allowed Jews to live in the land but not to rule it.

  • The only time that the Jews gained control over Jerusalem was from 165 BC to 63 BC when Judas Maccabeaus led a revolt against Antiochus Epiphanes.

  • The Roman army captured Jerusalem in 63 BC.

  • When Jesus was about 30 years of age and proclaimed to be the Messiah, some Jews wanted to use him to start a rebellion against the Romans, drive them out and set up the Kingdom of Israel again. John 6:14-15

  • The Jewish leadership brought a curse upon the Jewish people that will remain until Jesus returns. (Matthew 27:17-26) Jews as individuals can escape the curse if they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

  • The Jewish Leadership revolted and took control of Jerusalem for a short time. Then the Roman general Titus came with a large army in 70 AD and slaughtered approximately one million Jews. Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed and God’s word was again confirmed that the children of Israel that they couldn’t live in the land if they rebelled against Him.


Around 1500 AD, cabalistic Jews began to filter back to the land of Israel. Joseph Nasi (mid 16th century) was a close friend of the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. He was very rich and wanted to resettle Jews back into the land of Palestine. His plan involved sending ships to collect Jews from Italy and bringing them to Tiberias, but it could not be carried out because a war broke out between Turkey and the city state of Venice. From around 1540, Jews began to resettle in Jerusalem and Safed around Galilee.

Isaac “Ari” Luria (1534-1572)

Issac Luria was a German-Jewish Rabbi. At this time, rabbinical scholars around Safed began to openly practice the teachings of the Kabala. Luria further developed the Kabalistic teachings of re-incarnation.

Isaac Luria considered himself to be the “Messiah, the son of Joseph,” who according to Jewish legend would precede the real Messiah, the son of David. He spread the message among the Jews that the Jewish Messiah would begin to rule in 1648. At the same time, the Christian community started to believe that the Antichrist would appear in 1666.

Sabbatai Sevi (1626-1676)

Sabbatai Sevi was born in Smyrna Turkey and died in exile in Albania. He was of Spanish-Jewish origin and studied to become a rabbi. He came in contact with the Kabbalah in his studies and made it his major study. In 1648, he started to proclaim himself to be the Messiah. He had a personal prophet by the name of Abraham Nathan from Gaza. Nathan studied the writings of Isaac Luria and claimed to have apocalyptic visions that showed him to be the prophet to usher in the coming of the Messiah. He moved in “charismatic gifts”. He convinced Sevi that he was the messiah and that he (Nathan) was his prophet. After some mysterious supernatural events by Nathan, the messianic awakening of Sabbatai Sevi began on the 17th of Sivan (May-June) 1665.

Although Sevi was rejected by some Jewish people, the majority of Jews came to accept him as the Messiah. He was arrested while on a ship from Smyrna to Constantinople by the Turkish navy.

On September 16, 1666, Sevi was brought before a court of the Sultan of Turkey and charged with rebellion against the Turkish government. He was given an ultimatum to prove he was the messiah with a miracle or face execution. He dropped to his knees and asked the Sultan to accept his conversion to Islam. The Sultan accepted and he was given a new name Azis Mehemed Effendi. Three of his rabbinical followers who accompanied him also converted to Islam. The Jewish people were shocked and turned to Nathan for answers. It was then that the true nature of the Kabbalah was brought out to the masses. Nathan explained that Sevi had to commit apostasy in order for him to obtain salvation for his followers. The Jews split up over this issue and some turned back to the old form of Judaism but large numbers turned into “secret” Jews who were strong believers in Sabbatai Sevi and the messianic utopia for Israel which would later become Zionism. The birth of Zionism would follow later through another Jew named Jacob Frank

Sevi continued having visions, writing them down and spreading them in secret to his Jewish followers. He traveled regularly to Constantinople where he would secretly teach and minister his Jewish followers. They were Muslims outwardly but this was only a cover. Sabbattai and his three rabbis were arrested after a Jewish prayer service on September 12, 1672. On December 15, 1672, Sevi was tried for blasphemy against Islam. He should have received a death sentence but was sentenced into exile to the province of Morea (Albania). Nathan continued preaching that Sevi was the messiah and encountered strong resistance from Jewish non-believers. To his followers, Sevi was continually paying the high price of redeeming the Jewish people from sin. They believed that Sevi would some day become king of Israel and subdue all Gentile kingdoms. After more visions, Sabattai Sevi died on the Day of Atonement in 1676. Nathan convinced Sevi’s followers that he was resurrected. Nathan claimed to have been visited by Joshua and Caleb who appeared to him. Nathan lived in Sophia Bulgaria and kept claiming that Sabbatai Sevi was the true messiah and that there would be no other one but him. Nathan died on January 11, 1680.

Summary of Sabbatai Sevi Messianic Movement

Jews around the world united in “falling into apostasy,” becoming hidden Jews who would take Gentile names and publicly live like Gentiles but secretively were followers of the Kabbalah and Sabbatai Sevi.

The Jewish leadership started to work on a plan to bring Jews back to Palestine. The ones in “apostasy” advanced quickly into government positions in a number of nations and set the policies for the nations. Within the next 300 years, the new global organization was able to control the nations and most of the economic activities.


Moses Hess (1812-1875)

Moses Hess was born in Bonn, Germany and died in Paris, France. He was practiced Orthodox Judaism but broke away and embraced the Kabbalah. In 1837, he anonymously published his first book, “The Holy History of Mankind,” which revealed his ideas on anarchic socialism. In 1841, he founded the radical newspaper, “Rheineische Zeitung.” In 1842 he promoted Karl Marx, a German Jew to chief editor. Hess introduced Marx to the Freemasons and to communism. In 1844, Hess introduced Marx to the German Jew Friedrich Engels.

Moses Hess is considered the father of two political movements: communism and Zionism. He was buried in Cologne, Germany, but in 1961 his remains were re-buried in the graveyard of Kineret (Lake of Galilee, Israel) next to the graves of other founders of the modern Zionist socialist movement.

Some of his writings:

  • 1841, Die Europaische Triarchie: Promoting a formation of socialism based upon German philosophy, French politics and British political economy.

  • 1862, Rome and Jerusalem, the Last National Problem: Promoting Socialism, but he also wrote, “I have always been strengthened by the Hebrew prayers.”

  • On the Right of Labour

  • On Social and Economic reform

  • The red Catechism for the German People: Hess wrote, “My religion is the socialistic revolution.”

The writings of Hess promoted that outside of Judaism the following should happen:

  • No person should own any private property. (land, house, car, furniture, etc)

  • All humans should be moved into a classless society that is ruled by a group outside the law.

  • In order to force people into one classless society, it may be necessary to incite different groups against each other to prevent them from working together and destroying the very fabric of current society.

  • To force a socialistic revolution using Judaism, racial strife and the battle between different classes in society.

  • A Socialist must embrace Internationalism, with the exception of Jews, there should be no patriotism. Only Jews should be patriotic about Israel.

Hess believed that his ideology could be carried out under the banner of the Jewish Rothschild family. He publicly swore destruction and death to anyone who resisted his teachings on socialism, but in private, he was a religious Jew.

Hess told Karl Marx that the Jews had been given the task to transform the Gentiles into wild animals. Meanwhile his public teachings appealed to the young European people because life was hard for the working class. Here was a system that took the wealth from the rich and allowed all people to live a wonderful life in a utopian socialist society.


Theodor Herzl (1860-1904)

Theodor Herzl was born in Pest, Hungary and died in Vienna, Austria. Even though he graduated from law school in 1884, he became a writer involved with Zionism. He wrote books and various plays about the problems facing the society of his day. From 1891 to 1895, Herzl served as the Paris correspondent for the Vienna newspaper, “The Free Press,” an influential liberal Vienna daily newspaper.

As a successful play-write, Herzl was able to use his influence to promote the idea of an independent Palestinian state. With the rising of anti-Semitism in France, he began to write articles and plays promoting his ideas of how to solve the Jewish issues by having young Jews join the Socialistic movement en mass. He later took a hard stand that the only solution to establish a homeland for the Jewish people was a mass exodus of Jews from countries which were anti-Semitic. In 1895 he wrote a plan to relocate Jews to Palestine. He looked for financial backing from the Rothschild’s when he presented his plan. Max Nordeau (1849-1923), a Hungarian Jew became a supporter of it.

Solomon Rothschild with the "hidden hand" of the Illuminati

In 1896, Herzl published a book called, “Der Judenstaat,” in which he outlined his plan to relocate the Jews to Palestine. The first step was to build a strong political base. The book stirred up emotions in the Jewish community worldwide. The Jewish communities in Western Europe rejected the proposal while the poorer Jewish communities in Eastern Europe and Russia embraced the idea of a Jewish homeland; the Zionist Movement was born with Theodor Herzl as the Father. Herzl knew that a gradual colonizing would only stimulate anti-Semitism, so he advocated a population transfer under international supervision.

Summary of Herzl’s Plan:

First was the transfer of the “desperate Jews” fleeing oppression in Russia due to the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, in 1881, by a group of Jewish conspirators. This first group of Jews would be retrained for labor to cultivate the soil and build the infrastructure of the homeland

The second group brought in would be the poor Jews from Eastern Europe who would create vast labor pools which would be used to develop the nation commercially.

Once the infrastructure had been built and the farmers were able to support the people, then the prosperous Jews would be transferred to capitalize on the new Jewish state’s trade. The objective would be to bring in Jewish businessmen who could build up the economy of the nation.

The final transfer would be the wealthy Jews who would move in and live comfortably in the land that had been built by sweat and labor of the first three groups.

Theodor Herzl anticipated resistance from comfortable Jews and wrote, “Old prisoners do not willingly leave their cells… Perhaps we shall have to fight first of all against many an evil-disposed, narrow-hearted, short-sighted member of our own race. Whoever can, will and must perish, let him perish, but the distinctive nationality of the Jews neither can, will, nor must be destroyed. Whole branches of Judaism may wither and fall, but the trunk remains.”

Very few leaders of the Zionistic movement were religious. Many of them didn’t believe in God nor had a regard for the Old Testament. Most of them were atheistic or agnostic and similar to secular Jews today. It was not Judaism, but anti-Semitism created by the Jewish leadership which antagonized the Gentiles that helped to create the political state of Israel. Herzl’s plan outlined two organizations that needed to be built before the transfers of Jews could start:

1. “A Society of the Jews” to manage the affairs of the emerging Jewish state. The organization was formed in 1899 with the name “Jewish Colonial trust” was incorporated in England with 2 million Pounds.

2. “The Jewish Company,” a financial banking system. This would take care of the transfer of the wealth of the Jews as they move. In exchange for their current financial status, they would be compensated with land, machinery and homes in the new state. It would also take charge of their former financial matters and sell them of to “honest anti-Semites.” The Jewish National Fund was established in 1901 to purchase and cultivate land in Palestine, and in 1903, a subsidiary bank called, “The Anglo-Palestine bank,” was opened.

Theodor Herzl promised Christian governments good discounts on former Jewish holdings and had no mercy on Jews. They were to give up all their homes, savings, properties and business and move to Palestine and live in kibbutzim.

When Jewish people rejected the idea, Herzl warned them, “Great exertions will hardly be necessary to spur on the movement. Anti-Semites need only to do what they did before and then they will create a Jewish desire to emigrate where it did not previously exist.”


Various groups have worked separately with achieving the goals of Theodor Herzl:

  • Marxist group for Emancipation of Labor formed by George Plekhanov, (a Russian gentile who married a Jewess named Roza) and the Jewish Marxist’s Vera Zasulich, Lev Deutch and Pinchus Axelrod. They were later joined in 1895 by Vladimir Lenin, a Russian Gentile who married the Jewess Nadezhda Krupskaya, and went back to Russia and started an underground movement. He was arrested and sent to Siberia, released in 1900 and ended up in Geneva.

  • Anti-Jewish publication in Vienna called “Ostara” started by a half Jew named Adolf Joseph Lanz who married to Jewess Libenfels, changed his name to Dr. Georg Lanz von Liebenfels and later added the title Baron. The magazine was blatantly anti-Semitic and promoted the Roman Catholic Church and the pure Aryan race.

  • “The Thule Order” was a secret society created by Lanz. It later played a major role in the formation of the Nazi Party and the rise of Adolf Hitler. In 1907 Lanz hoisted up a Swastika flag over the castle in Werfenstein.

  • In 1909 Adolf Hitler (a half Jew) met with Lanz and became his student.

Lanz told Lenin in Switzerland, “We counter-revolutionaries give Jews the right to create their own state in Palestine.”

  • Benito Mussolini at the age of 19 moved to Switzerland and became a student of Marxism. He moved back to Italy after he met with Jewish International Communist leaders.

  • At this time the system was in place to move Jews from Europe to Palestine.In order to get the Jews moving, Theodor Herzl become the “Shepherd” and Hitler became the “Prosecutor.”

  • Some Jews were upset and angry; others were excited about the plan.

Theodor Herzl tried selling his idea at various times:

  • The Jewish congress in September 1898.

  • Private meetings with the German Emperor Wilhelm II on October 18, 1898 and November 2, 1898. Under pressure from rich Jewish Bankers, Jewish leaders in Germany and Jewish Newspapers in Germany.

  • Private meeting with Sultan Abdul Hamid II of Turkey on 17 May 1901, since Palestine belonged to Turkey. Under pressure from Jewish Bankers again, the Sultan asked for Financial aid for Turkey before opening up Palestine. A second meeting with the Sultan in 1902 was refused.

  • 4th Zionist congress in 1900

  • Testimony in the Royal commission in England where he met with The Rothchild banking house.

  • Meeting with Russian Minister of Interior Baron Vyacheslav K von Plehve. Russia promised to lobby with Sultan of Turkey

  • 6th Zionist congress in August 1903.

  • Greater Action committee in April 1904.

Theodor Herzl died on July 3, 1904. He left behind a foundation to build upon despite tough resistance from wealthy Jews

Sabbatean-Jews plotted the Armenian Holocaust!

Business as usual is a powerful motivating force especially when Jews like the Rothschilds are running an oil business. Banking is the forte of the Jewish House of Rothschild. But raw materials–especially oil–are money in the bank.

The Young Turk movement, AKA Committee of Union and Progress, arose out of the Rothschilds’ oil interests in the Black Sea area of the Ottoman Empire in the late 1800s. ‘Creating stability’ in an incendiary realm was necessary for the Rothschilds’ new oil enterprise Baku Oil. The instability of the Armenian Christians financial and intellectual prominence in the area was not ‘good for business.’

Thus hand-picked Jews of Salonika, Jews made up the majority of the city’s population, and foreign agitators such as the Russian Zionist, Vladimir Jabotinksy, the editor of The Young Turk newspaper, were just what the Rothschilds needed for ridding the source of that instability, the Armenian Christians.

Now, the Zionist Young Turks who sought for the break up of the Ottoman Empire in order to obtain Palestine–and the House of Rothschild, who needed a Jewish-controlled Turkey and hegemony over the entire Middle East, could work together. This meant funding for the Jewish Young Turks and revolutionary subversives for the Rothschilds.

Historical background of the Jewish "Young Turks"

1680: Sabbatai Zvi, a Turkish Jew, proclaims himself to be the Jewish Messiah in Salonica. After amassing a following of thousands of Jews - he led them on a Zionist exodus to Palestine. On the way he decided to become a Muslim. Many of his followers saw this as God's plan and also became Muslims.

1716: A group called the “Donmeh” forms in Salonica of Sabbatai Zvi’s followers headed by Sabbatai Zvi’s successor, Baruchya Russo. By the early 1900's, the Donmeh numbers in the hundreds of thousands. They were known as Crypto Jews because though outwardly appearing to be Muslims, they were still Jews following the customs of the Jewish occult Kabbala which Sabbatai Zvi taught. They continue in their fervent, (yet secret), Zionist vision.

1860: Jewish Hungarian Zionist named Arminius Vambery becomes an advisor to the Sultan Abdul Mecit while secretly working as an agent for Lord Palmerston of the British Foreign Office. Vambery tries to broker a deal between the Zionist leader Theodore Herzl and Sultan Abdul Mecit over the creation of Israel but fails.

1891: Out of the Donmeh a Zionist political group forms called The Committee of Union and Progress, later called The Young Turks. The group is headed by a Freemason Jew by the name of Emmanuel Carraso who organizes the secret Committee of Union and Progress in Geneva with the help of the Rothschilds.

1895-1896: Sephardic Jews of Salonika together with the Turks massacre Armenian Christians in Istanbul.

1902 & 1907: Two Congresses of The Young Turks meet in Paris to plan, prepare, and effect the penetration the Sultan’s army leading to the military coup of 1908.

1908: The Jewish Young Turks revolt and force the Sultan Abdul Hamid II into submission.

1909: The Jewish Young Turks rape, torture, and slaughter over 100,000 Armenians in the city of Adana, also known as Cilicia.

1914: The Jews of The Young Turks create unrest, turmoil, and bolster the paid Serbian assassin, Gavrilo Princip, which leads to World War I.

1915: The Armenian Holocaust engineered by the ruling Jews of The Young Turks, leaves 1.5 million Armenian Christians starved, tortured, and murdered.

1918: Jew Mustafa Kemal ‘Attaturk’ ascends into leadership.

1920: Russian Jewish Bolsheviks supply Attaturk iwth 10 million gold roubles, 45,000 rifles, and 300 machine guns with ammunition.

1921: Attaturk occupies the Port of Batu in conjunction with the Russian Jewish Bolsheviks ceding it to the Bolsheviks five days later. The Rothschilds are delighted.

1922: Jewish Khemalists orchestrate the burning of Smyrna resulting in the ‘ethnic cleansing’ of over 100,000 Armenian and Greek Christians left tortured, starved, raped, and dead.

Jacob Henry Schiff (1847-1920) was a German Jew who moved to New York in 1865 and became a protégée of the Rothchilds. He married the daughter of Solomon Loeb, a Jewish banker. Schiff became the head of the bank in 1885. His wife’s sister, Nina, was married to Paul Warburg (1868-1932) of the Jewish Warburg banking house in Hamburg, Germany. He also moved to New York and became a partner in the bank Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Paul Warburg became the first chairman of the federal reserve in 1913. His brother Max Warburg (1867-1946) stayed in Germany and helped to finance the German war efforts during WWII. At the same time Paul Warburg financed the war effort of the American government. It is interesting to note that WWII was financed from both sides by the same banking family, the Warburgs and Kuhn, Loeb and Co. Another brother, Felix Warburg, married the daughter of Jacob Schiff and later became the Chief Operations Officer of Kuhn Loeb & Co.

During the 1890’s, young Marxists/Socialist Jews who emigrated from Eastern Europe to the United States received terrorist training in America under the Jewish Masonic Lodge (B’nai B’rith). They returned to Russia and tried to overthrow the Russian government through a revolution. Russia started to refuse American passports and punished the Jewish terrorists. As a result, American Jews accused the Russian Government of being Anti-Semitic.

Jacob Schiff and the Jewish leadership wanted to teach Russia a lesson and encouraged Japan to demand concessions from Russia and relinquish territory from its Eastern part. Russia refused and as Japan got ready to attack. Jacob Schiff arranged a financial boycott of Russia and financed Japanese war efforts. Russia was starved for cash and Japan had all the financial aid it needed. The war began on February 8, 1904. While the war was raging, the Marxist/Socialistic Jewish terrorists struck from within Russia with assassinations of government officials and law enforcement personnel. Prime Minister Viachelav von Plehve was assassinated and the Tsar of Russia sued for peace. Russia ceded territory to Japan between August 9 and September 5, 1905. Jacob Schiff was present at the signing of the peace treaty on September 5, 1905. On December 16, 1905, three hundred Jewish Marxist/Socialist terrorists were arrested following the Black Sunday revolution. Schiff was determined to overthrow the Russian government and replace them with a Marxist leadership. He and his International Banker friends arranged to starve the Russian government of any loans while a stronger nation like Germany would be used to attack Russia. WWI was being planned!


Between 1905 and 1914, Russia progressed very well with landownership programs for farmers. Russia gave voting rights to its people and raised their standard of living. Tsar Nicholas gave Russia a representative government and a constitutional monarchy. A legislative body called the “Duma” was created and free elections were held. Jewish Marxist terrorists tried to assassinate Premier Stolypin in 1906. The second assassination attempt succeeded when a Jewish attorney Mordecai Bogrow shot and killed the Premier in 1911. By 1911, Russia produced 40% of the world’s crop of grain products.

The Russian population was angry with the Jews because they knew it was the Jewish leadership that had set up all the public violence in order to overthrow the government. Russian mobs attacked Jewish stores and homes and over 800 Jews were killed. The violence continued and by 1911 approximately 50,000 Russians had been killed in bombings, shootings and mass attacks on civilians. In 1906 approximately 600 Jewish Marxist/Socialistic terrorists were executed by the Russian Government. The world started blaming the Russian government of being anti-Semitic. Between 1907 and 1908 another 2,328 Jewish Marxist/Socialistic Terrorists were executed by the Russian Government after trials of military tribunals. The result is that about 35,000 Jewish terrorists fled to Palestine, United States and Europe.

Stalin with the "hidden hand" of the Illuminati

Joseph Stalin (1879-1953)

Joseph Stalin was half Jewish and half Russian. In 1903 he was recruited by the Russian secret police and led a double life. He was arrested 8 times; he escaped and continued his work in the Marxist/socialist movement.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870-1924)

Vladimir Lenin was also half Jewish and half Russian. He was a Marxists/Socialist that worked for the Jewish world leaders. He was arrested a few times and sentence to exile in Siberia where he married his Jewish wife. After he served his sentence, they lived in Germany, Belgium, England, Poland, and Switzerland before returning to Russia. He was never employed but lived a life of luxury in Europe. He was a member of the French freemasons “Art et Travai.”

Trotzky (Bornstein) with the "hidden hand" of the Illuminati

Leon (Lev) Trotsky (1879-1940)

Leon Trotsky’s real name was Leiba Bronstein. He was under the training of Alexander Parvus (whose real name was Israel Gelfand) during high school. Parvus was a Russian Jewish freemason. He not only taught Trotsky in the Talmud but he also introduced him to the Kabala, Zionism and Marxism/Socialism. Trotsky became a member of the freemasons and the B’nai B’rth.

The Russian police arrested him twice, each time he was sentenced to exile in Siberia but escaped both times. Together with Lenin, Trotsky and Parvus helped arrange the Russian revolution. Trotsky was finally deported to the United States where he lived under the protection and payroll of Jacob Schiff.

In an interview with the publication, “New American Journal,” on February 3, 1949, John Schiff, the grandson of Jacob Schiff told the interviewer that his grandfather had given 20 million dollars to start the Russian revolution. Other American Jews and Gentiles who also donated to the cause of the Russian revolution were Paul Warburg, Harriman, Rockefeller, and J. P. Morgan.

In 1917, Lenin and Trotsky started the process of taking over Russia. Joseph Stalin joined the group as a double agent, working also for the Russian government. Some 8,000 Jewish revolutionaries joined at St. Petersburg to form the core of the emerging communist party. These men took leadership in the Red Army and in the terrible “Cheka” later renamed to NKVD and then renamed again to KGB.

The Russian revolution was in reality a Jewish takeover of Russia in the midst of WWI, in preparation for the formation of the state of Israel and the coming Jewish Messiah.

American Jewish Committee (AJC)

The AJC was started in 1906 by Jacob Schiff and 60 other well-known influential German Jews to forward the Jewish cause in the United States. The majority of the Eastern European Jews were not happy with the AJC. The AJC considered itself the upper class since they were very rich and the majority of the Eastern European Jews were not Marxist/Socialists but were simply trying to survive in a hostile world. But the Jewish leadership had an agenda of creating a homeland for the Jews in Palestine. Russia and the United States would be used to force the creation of a homeland for the Jews in 1948 when they forced a positive vote at the United Nations.

Jacob Schiff and his friends lived a life of luxury in the United States as did the Marxist/Socialist leaders in Western Europe while young Jewish activists were sent into Russia to stir up trouble. Most of them ended up sacrificing their lives. WWI had been planned for some time and was ready to be implemented.


The World Government secretly promised France and Great Britain the numerous German colonies as spoils of war once Germany was defeated. These colonies included Togo, Cameroon, Namibia, Mariana Islands, Caroline Islands, Marshall Islands, Western Samoa, New Guinea, Rwanda, Burundi, and Tanzania.

A total of 29 nations lined up against Germany and its allies. All of the nations involved in the war had been prepared beforehand. The national bankers were all notified that a war was about to break out; orchestrated and controlled by the World Government through the Rothschild family. Investors were lined up at the stock markets in the different countries and industries were geared up for war production with enormous profits for the operators and shareholders. The war started when Prince Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife were assassinated while on a state visit to Bosnia on June 28, 1914. Austria demanded concessions from Serbia, which was a state of Russia and called on it for protection. Austria called on Germany and on August 1, 1914, Germany declared war on Russia and soon France declared war on Germany. During 4 years and 3 months of the war, 8 million soldiers and 20 million civilians died.

Stalin, Lenin and Trotsky would play a major role in 1917 in the take-over of Russia where millions of people were tortured and killed. Together with 200 Jewish revolutionists, they were transported by train through countries of Germany, Sweden and through Finland to St. Petersburg. This operation involved the secret police of Germany, Sweden, Great Britain and traitors within the Russian Okhrana. The Jewish world leadership sponsored the transfer under leadership of the Warburg banking family.

Trotsky had 20 million dollars in gold coins with him when he arrived in St. Petersburg. This was used to buy the non-commissioned officers of the two regiments in St. Petersburg. With the help of these two regiments that were staffed by Trotsky’s American trained officers, Lenin and Trotsky were able to take over St. Petersburg and set up the Communist regime with the Red Army. The armed forces that remained loyal to the Tsar formed the White Army.

A total of 14 nations sent troops into Russia to protect the Bolshevik revolution and defeat the White Army. In Western Europe, the war was raging and German troops were fighting against British, French and American troops, while in Russia the British, French, American, German and Japanese troops worked together to defeat the White Army. In 1918, the Bolshevik government of Lenin and Trotsky signed a peace treaty with Germany.

Finland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia used this opportunity to declare their own independence while a civil war raged in Russia. There was a terrible hate towards Jews in Russia due to the fact that the Bolshevik leadership was Jewish. More than 100,000 Russian Jews were executed by the White army. The civil war lasted from 1917 to 1920.

During the civil war, Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky ruthlessly killed all opposition and only allowed Communists to work and organize in the Soviet Union. The Russian Jews had no problems; they organized and traveled at will in and out of Russia. This proves that the Bolshevik leadership was in itself a Jewish revolution aimed at taking over Russia.

The Versailles Treaty

The German government sued for peace in October of 1918 and asked President Woodrow Wilson of the United States to act as mediator. The American delegation included members of the American Jewish Committee and the American Jewish Congress (Group of Zionistic Jews), such as:

  • Julian W. Mack (1866-1943)

  • Rabbi Stephen S. Wise (1874-1949)

  • Louis D. Marshall (1856-1929)

  • Jacob de Haas (1872-1937), Editor of London Jewish World and Zionists and personal friend of Theodor Herzl

  • Nachman Syrkin (1868-1924), founder of Socialist Zionism

  • Jewish delegations from Palestine, Canada, Russia, Ukraine, Poland Eastern Galacia, Romania, Transylvania, Bukovina, Italy, Greece and other nations.

Google: Benjamin Freedman Speech

A group was formed during the congress called, “Committee of Jewish Delegations to the Peace Conference.”

  • Secretary General Leo Motzkin (1867-1933), a personal friend of Theodor Herzl

  • World Zionist Organization

  • B’nai B’rith

  • The peace deal imposed harsh conditions on Germany. The Jewish leadership had written into the treaty the assurance of a Jewish homeland in Palestine (a province of the Turkish Ottoman empire), including Jewish rights in other nations. The Peace treaty was signed on June 28, 1919.

Six years later when Hitler lead Germany, he bitterly complained about this treaty being the work of Jewish bankers.

The “Balfour Declaration of 1917” was made while WWI was still raging. The British government by the hand of Arthur Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary, made a declaration and asked Lionel Walter Rothschild to bring this declaration to the attention of Zionist Federation. It was endorsed by Britain’s allies in the war. It was finally endorsed by the League of Nations. The Balfour declaration recognized the right of Jewry to Palestine, while Palestine was still a province of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. From this moment on, the Zionist Jews claimed that they have a legal right to Palestine through “International Law.” This claim makes a mockery of the law that God gave Moses and the promise to inherit the land if Israel was to keep Gods law. There was a penalty (the loss of the land) if Israel were to depart from the Lord. (Deuteronomy 28)


Betar is a Jewish organization that helped bring Jews to Palestine. It was founded in 1923, in Riga (Capital of Latvia) by Vladimir Jabotinsky. The organization started as a youth revisionist movement but later developed into a para-military terrorist organization. It is named after the Jew Joseph Trumpeldor (1880-1920). Trumpeldor served in the Russian Imperial army. After attending the first Zionist Congress in 1897, he returned to Russia and founded a Zionist society in Pyatigorsk. He graduated from St. Petersburg University in 1912. He evolved into an anarcho-socialist, which promotes taking over rural areas and using them to launch terror against the state until it had been destabilized and destroyed, and a Zionist and called for the settling of Palestine of agricultural Jewish collective farms. He moved to Palestine and worked as a laborer when the war broke our in 1914. The Turkish government expelled him to Egypt, where he met Jabotinsky. In March 1917, Trumpeldor traveled to Russia with the mission to establish a Jewish legion of 100,000 Jewish soldiers to fight its way down to Palestine and free it from the Turks. When Lenin ordered the legion to be disbanded, Trumpeldor formed a Jewish self-defense organization and became involved in He-Halutz, a pioneer organization of Jewish youth that trained its members for pioneering work and self defense in Palestine. When he arrived in Palestine in 1919, he offered British General Henry Allenby help in forming a Jewish legion of 10,000 Russian Jews. After he was turned down, Trumpeldor worked to unite the different trade unions in order to make it easier to bring more Jews to Palestine. In 1920 Trumpeldor was killed in an attack on Galilee. His efforts only paid off after his death.

By 1939, Betar had 100,000 Jewish members in 26 countries and formed the National Workers Federation in 1934. Betar members became powerful under-ground fighters in Palestine where they attacked Arab and British troops.

The first Jewish naval training camp in Civitavecchia, Italy in 1934 and in Riga Latvia in 1935 were established and manned by Betar. As was the first Jewish training center in Paris (1934), Lydda Palestine (1938), Johannesburg South Africa (1939) and New York (1941). Since 1948, Betar groups have formed 45 new settlements particularly in occupied territories. The Zionist leaders have at their disposal a powerful private organization. If a dirty job is therefore needed somewhere in the world, Betar forces can be dispatched without any trace to the Zionist leadership.

The plan to take Palestine from the people living there was not known to the majority of Jews. Although a part of the Jewish leadership knew about it and opposed it, the majority of the Jews were deceived by the Zionist leadership. Most were deceived into believing that the Jewish population in Palestine could be built up peacefully and a Jewish state would eventually emerge. Most of the Jews were comfortable with this approach, especially in Eastern Europe and Russia; however, the Jewish people in Western Europe and North America had no intention of being part of this pioneering effort because they were educated and generally more well-off with homes and businesses. Therefore, the Zionist leadership had to create some kind of force to convince the skilled Jews of Western Europe and North America to leave their security and start over as pioneers. The Zionist leadership decided to target the Western European Jews as the American Jews could not be subjected to harsh pressure since they were financing the Zionistic movement. Theodor Herzl’s 38 year old plan was going to be implemented.


In the early 1920’s and early 1930’s, large amounts of money were given to the Nazi party from Jewish banks.


Rudolf Rezso Kastner (1906–1957)

Rudolf Kastner was born to Jewish parents in Transylvania (Hotel "Vier Jahreszeiten + Dracula" / "Vier Jahreszeiten + NaZis"), a state of Austria which was transferred to Romania. Kastner studied and became an attorney, journalist and a leader in the Zionist youth movement “Aviva Barissia” and “Ha-lhud ha-Olam.” He moved to Budapest in 1942 and joined a local Palestine Foundation Fund which was a fundraising organization of the World Zionist Organization. He also held the post of Vice chairman of the Hungarian Zionist Federation.

Kastner was in the top management of the Zionist movement and authorized to negotiate with the German Nazis and make deals with them. He was accepted by Hitler’s regime as Zionist leader representing Hungary. Early in WWII, he had open channels to Henrich Himmler (1900-1945). When Adolf Eichmann (1906-1962) traveled to Budapest in March 1944, he met with Rudolf and worked out some deals after Hungary surrendered to Germany during the war.

In the early days of Hitler’s government, an arrangement had been worked out between Nazis and Zionists to transfer Jews to Palestine in exchange for payment to the German Government. Only a small number of Jews were allowed to escape. Of the 750,000 Jews in Hungary, 550,000 were sent to their deaths in German extermination camps.

Kastner did not work alone. Joel Eugen Brand (1906-1964), a Jew from Transylvania started to work with him in 1943 in rescuing Jewish refugees. Brand received an message from Adolf Eichmann to travel to Turkey and convey the message to the Jewish Agency that Hungarian Jews would be spared and released in exchange for military supplies. A meeting took place with the Jewish agency on June 16, 1944. Brand was arrested by British security forces en route to Palestine and sent to a military detention center in Cairo, Egypt. There he was allowed to meet Moshe Sharrett (1894-1965) the head of the Secret Security Commission of the Jewish Agency and a high official in the Zionist movement. The British Government refused to accept the German offer and the shipment of Hungarian Jews to the death camps began. However, Kastner was able to negotiate with Neutral nations, and some trucks and other supplies were given to the Germans that resulted in 1,786 Jews being released into Switzerland. Kasztner’s efforts were marginal compared to the 550,000 Hungarian Jews who died in Germany. Many of the Hungarian Jews were kept no more than three miles from the border with Romania and were only guarded by a small group of German soldiers since Germany was losing a lot of manpower to the losses against the Allied forces. There were also very strong underground fighters in Hungary which could have overpowered the Germany soldiers. Instead of being warned and helped to flee, Kastner told the imprisoned Jews that there was no danger and that they should just be patient. The Jews trusted their Zionist leadership and sat like cattle outside a slaughterhouse waiting for their deaths.

Later, after WWII, Rudolf Kastner was given a government position in Israel as member of the Mapai party. In 1953, he was accused by Malkiel Gruenwald of collaborating with the Nazis and being the direct cause of the deaths of Hungarian Jews. The Israeli government took it very seriously and tried to protect Rudolf Kastner by ordering the Israeli attorney general to file a criminal lawsuit against Gruenwald! On June 22, 1955, the judge found that the case against Rudolf Kastner had merit and so the Israeli cabinet voted to order the attorney general to appeal it to a higher court. A vote of no confidence was introduced in the Israeli Parliament, and when Zionists refused to support the vote, it caused a cabinet crisis. If the truth of the Holocaust came out, it could bring down the Zionist Movement and threaten the very existence of Israel. Most Jews didn’t know that the Zionists worked with the Nazi’s. If the public were informed about the truth, they would react with horror and outrage. The Supreme Court would have started its hearings in 1958, but the Zionist movement couldn’t take the chance being incriminated if Kastner testified. As a result, Kastner was assassinated on March 3, 1957. On January 17, 1958, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the late Rudolf Kastner.


The story of Rudolf Kastner and his collaboration with the Nazi’s was reported in a book called “Perfidy” by an American born Jew named Ben Hecht (1894-1964). Ben was a staunch supporter of a Jewish state in Palestine at first but in the end he became a strong anti-Zionist. His book is a well-documented expose of the Zionist movement and how the Zionist Leadership worked with the Nazis in the annihilation of their fellow Jews to create such a hostile climate in Europe that Jews had no other option but to immigrate to Palestine.

More evidence

In 1977 Rabbi Moshe Schonfeld published a book called “The Holocaust Victims.” Schonfeld confirmed the writings of Ben Hecht and wrote that the Zionist leadership was concerned only in the creation of the state of Israel, not with saving Jewish lives. The book had photocopied documents supporting the charges of betrayal against the following three people:

1. Chaim Weizmann (1874-1952), a Zionist Leader and the first President of Israel.

2. Rabbi Stephen Wise (1874-1949), a Hungarian born Jew living in the USA.

3. Yitzhak Grunbaum (1879-1970), a Polish Jew and the chairman of Jewish Agency, a high leader in the Zionistic movement and Minister of Interior of the first Israeli cabinet in 1948

Paul Wallenberg was the Swedish ambassador to Hungary. He arrived shortly after 438,000 Jews were deported from Hungary to their deaths in German extermination camps. He issued Swedish passports to approximately 35,000 Jews and made Adolf Eichmann (Der jüdische Eichman) furious. As the Germans would march Jews in what was known as death marches, Wallenburg and his staff would go to train stations and hand out passports to rescue the Jews from being taken. This upset Rudolf Kastner ( Merkel = Angela Kastner = IM Erika ) and his Zionist teams because the goal of the Swedish team was to transport as many Jews as possible to Sweden as soon as the war was over. This was contrary to the goals of the Zionist leadership who were implementing Herzl’s plan. Any surviving Jews were to be taken to Palestine, not Sweden. Wallenburg succeeded in bringing out more Jews than Rudolf Kastner ever did. When the Soviet army invaded Hungary in January 1945, Wallenburg was arrested on January 17. He was charged with espionage and murdered. Paul Wallenburg had exposed the cooperation of the Zionist leadership with the Nazis and this was a secret that could not be let out. Therefore, the Communist/Zionist leadership eliminated a noble man who had given his all to save Jewish men, women and children.

When the debate about the Nazis working with the Zionists would not go away, the Jewish Leadership decided that something must be done to put the issue to rest. If the gentile population found out about the dark shadow over the formation of Israel, it could undermine current and future support for the state of Israel that cannot exist without the billions of dollars it receives in aid every year from the United States.

Edwin Black, an American born Jewish writer and journalist was asked in 1978 to investigate and write a history of the events. With a team of more than 10 Jewish experts, the project took five years. The book was named, “The Transfer Agreement,” and it accurately points out a whole list of Jews in the Nazi leadership but the conclusion innocently states that the Zionists who negotiated the transfer agreement could not have anticipated the concentration camps and gas chambers. The book is very well researched but still doesn’t tell the history of the Zionist movement and the ideology of Theodor Herzl. Most importantly, it leaves out Herzl’s words that “if whole branches of Jews must be destroyed, it is worth it, as long as a Jewish state in Palestine is created.”

Edwin Black’s book is a great documentation, but it is sad that he and the Jewish Leadership are not willing to face the facts that the Zionist Leadership was the cause of the Holocaust. It is even more sad to think that the Jewish people suffered tremendously during the Nazi regime caused by their own leadership. They were sacrificed for the cause of establishing a “kingdom” on earth, which has no place for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (Matthew 23:13-15) Some day in the future the Jewish people will understand that their Messiah, which their ancestors rejected, was the Son of God. (Zechariah 12:10-14)

In 1964 a book by Dietrich Bronder (German Jew) was published in Germany called, “Before Hitler came.” (Bevor Hitler kam) The book tried to come to grips with why the German Jews turned on their own people and caused so much destruction of innocent people. The answer given in the book states that the driving force behind the Jewish Nazis, was the old dream to have a Messiah who could establish a world rule with the Jews in power. The same ideology as can be seen in John 6:14-15.

The most prominent Gentile and Jewish-Nazi leaders were:

Documents supporting the “exceptions” that Hitler made for German Jews serving in the Nazi party numbered around 1,200. There were 2 Field Marshall’s, 10 Generals, 14 Colonels, 30 Majors and thousands of lower ranking officers and non-commanding officers who received these exceptions.


From a rational and economical point of view, it doesn’t make sense that the Nazi leaders initiated the total destruction of German Jews and other Jews in Western Europe by their own accord. Historical records show that the German Jews were the most assimilated. Germany had established a friendly atmosphere for Jews since the mid 1850’s which caused them to prosper greatly. They owned and operated banks, factories, and businesses throughout Germany, especially exports which was the lifeblood of the economy. German Jews posed no threat to Germany; in fact, the German economy had become very dependant on them. The German Jews saw themselves as more noble than the eastern European Jews. In the 1920’s the head of the German Jewish bank in Hamburg, Paul Warburg, even advised the German Prime Minister Ebert to stop the migration of Jews from Eastern Europe.

Warburg later told a Wall Street courier that “with Jews, Hitler means the Polish Jews who polluted Germany since World War I began.”

The Nazi leadership was in their late 20’s to early 30’s who had become disillusioned with the different administrations, having lived through WWI and seen the destruction of the German economy. They had been drawn into the occult and many members of the Nazi leadership were members of the Thule Society which had connections to American and British freemasonry. The Nazi religion was a mixture of Thule Society and the Scandinavian religion of the Nordic gods and the myth of the pure Aryan race with blond hair and blue eyes.

The young German Jews were angry with the Jews in England and the United States and blamed them for starting WWI and destroying Germany. The strong Eastern European Jews who made up the Zionist movement had a fanatical dream of establishing a new Israel.

God was not the one who created the political state of Israel in 1948; it was the work of sinful men. Most of the people in the Zionist movement were atheistic, agnostic or followers of the occult Cabala or Talmud.

Moses Hess, Theodor Herzl and other Zionist leaders never mentioned that God had spoken to them to undertake this project. Instead, they were driven by communism/socialism. What they didn’t know was that the force which drove them was the Devil himself. (Revelation 13:1-2)


Why Hitler and his Jewish followers decided to destroy the Jews in Europe is a mystery that won’t be fully known until the Great White Throne Judgment. All that we know is that the Nazi’s and the Zionists entered into an unholy alliance of death and murder which caused pain on a scale that humanity had never before experienced. Theodor Herzl’s book written in 1896, “Der Judenstaat,” spelled out the destruction of some Jewish communities in order to motivate other Jews to move to Palestine.

Something is wrong in the way that history has been written since 1945. The sanitized history that Hitler and his Nazi’s were all stupid and didn’t know what they were doing doesn’t make sense! Hitler was ambitious and intelligent, he understood that killing off the German Jews and their businesses would have been a suicidal disaster for the struggling economy.

If Hitler really hated the Jews, it would have been smarter to hide his hatred and build up the military power economy first, then attack the different nations, and then afterwards, turn on the Jews. Therefore, a power much stronger than Hitler, the Zionist movement with its blue print laid out by Theodor Herzl, and forced him into the policies he made.

The Antichrist is going to rule from Jerusalem someday where he will sit in a temple which is not yet erected. God is not going to establish a temple in Jerusalem and institute sacrifices again. This goes directly against the teaching of the New Testament and is blasphemy against Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 9:11-26)

God doesn’t have a special salvation plan for Jews. There is only one way for Jews and Gentiles to be saved and that is through Jesus Christ. (John 3:1-8, John 14:6, Acts 4:8-13, Galatians 3:26-29)

Die Messiasvorstellung im Judentum

Die Verkennung JESU als Messias und GOTT den Sohn hat im Volke Israel im Laufe der vergangenen zwei Jahrtausende zahlreiche Pseudo-Messiasse hervorgebracht. Im folgenden geben wir einen kurzen Überblick.
In Zeiten schwerer Bedrängnis des jüdischen Volkes traten immer wieder Männer auf, die messianische Ansprüche erhoben. 

Die daraus hervorgegangenen Messias-Bewegungen zielten darauf ab, die Zukunft des jüdischen Volkes zu gestalten: Sie sollten seine politische Selbständigkeit wieder erlangen und/oder Palästina wieder für das Volk Israel erobern und den Tempel wieder errichten.

Sobald sich ein Mann fand, der es verstand, seiner Umwelt den Glauben an seine messianische Berufung einzuflößen, verdichtete sich die Sehnsucht nach nationaler Erlösung rasch zu einer messianischen Bewegung. Solche Bewegungen waren mit dem Glauben an den Erlöser, der “am Ende der Zeiten” kommen sollte, an den Messias also, eng verknüpft. Sein Wirken sollte mit den Weissagungen der Propheten und den Visionen Daniels (gegebenenfalls auch mit anderen Schriften, die sich mit den “letzten Dingen” befassten) übereinstimmen.


Die Pseudo-Messiasse (= Lügen-Messiasse) hatten natürlich auch nichts mit Sündenvergebung zu tun. Da sie doch selbst allesamt elende Sünder und zudem ohne Vollmacht von GOTT waren, wie hätten sie auch dem Volk EINE BLEIBENDE UND EINE VOR GOTT GÜLTIGE VERGEBUNG VON SÜNDEN gewähren können? In ihrem gesteigerten messianischen Bewusstsein forderten solche Schwärmer und Träumer verstärkte religiöse Praktiken wie Bußübungen, Fasten, ..., vom Volk, wodurch sie von GOTT die Erlösung erzwingen wollten, Einige traten als gläubige Männer der Tat auf und wollten (mit Waffengewalt!) die Befreiung Israels herbeiführen. Andere waren leichtsinnige Abenteurer, und bei wieder anderen zeigte sich eine Mischung verschiedener soeben angeführter Vorgangsweisen. Beim Volke galten sie als Wundertäter, die die vorgesehenen Funktionen des Messias übernehmen durften.

Hatte nicht schon JESUS darauf hingewiesen, dass nach Ihm FALSCHE MESSIASSE kommen werden? Ja! In Seinen Endzeitreden warnt JESUS klar und eindringlich: 

  • “23 Wenn dann jemand zu euch sagen wird: Siehe, hier ist der Christus, oder dort, so glaubt es nicht! 24 Denn es werden falsche Christusse und falsche Propheten auftreten und werden große Zeichen und Wunder tun, um, wenn möglich, auch die Auserwählten zu verführen. 25 Siehe, ich habe es euch vorhergesagt. 26 Wenn sie nun zu euch sagen werden: "Siehe, er ist in der Wüste!", so geht nicht hinaus; "Siehe, er ist in den Kammern!", so glaubt es nicht! 27 Denn wie der Blitz vom Osten ausfährt und bis zum Westen scheint, so wird auch die Wiederkunft des Menschensohnes sein. 28 Denn wo das Aas ist, da sammeln sich die Geier” (Matthäus 24,23-28).

Starke Nationen (Geier), die Israel bedrängen, bewirken, dass sich im Volk der Juden Führerpersönlichkeiten mit dem Anspruch erheben, sie seien der von GOTT verheißene Erlöser  (Befreier)  aus der Knechtschaft des Feindes.

Den wirklichen Messias, DEN BEFREIER AUS DER KNECHTSCHAFT DER SÜNDE, hat ISRAEL jedoch VERKANNT. Israel hat sich gestoßen "an dem Stein des Anstoßes, wie geschrieben steht: 

  • 'Siehe, ICH (GOTT) lege in Zion EINEN STEIN DES ANSTOSSES und EINEN FELS DES ÄRGERNISSES, und wer an Ihn glaubt, wird nicht zu Schanden werden' (vgl. Jes.8, 14; 28:16; 1. Petr.2,6-8)"; Röm. 9,32b.33. 

Als Kompensation für das Verwerfen JESU als Messias und aus SEHNSUCHT NACH EINEM MESSIAS NACH EIGENEM(!) GESCHMACK (nämlich: nach einem POLITISCHEN BEFREIER!) haben Teile des Volkes Israel bereits mehrmals Männern die Ehre des von GOTT verheißenen Messias gegeben. Wir wollen nun einige dieser Lügen-Messiasse kurz und in chronologischer Reihenfolge beschreiben. Dabei erheben wir aber keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit.

Flavius Josephus (37-100 n.Chr.), jüdischer Geschichtsschreiber und Priester, berichtet von einer starken messianischen Bewegung. Sie entstand nach (!) dem Tode von König Herodes Agrippa I. (gestorben im Jahre 44; vgl. Apg. 12,1; 1,21-23) und der damit einhergehenden Umwandlung Judäas in eine römische Provinz (allerdings war Judäa bereits zwischen 6 und 41 unmittelbar der Verwaltung der römischen Prokuratoren unterstellt). Die damalige politische Lage Israels (schlechte wirtschaftliche Verhältnisse,...) brachte ihren POLITISIEREN- DEN MESSIAS hervor, der den Jordan spalten und damit dem Volke seine Erlöserberufung beweisen wollte. Josephus nennt einen Zauberer und angeblichen Propheten namens THEUDAS, der unter dem Prokurator Cuspius Fadus (44-46) hingerichtet wurde. Auch seine Anhänger wurden von den römischen Besatzungstruppen niedergemetzelt. (Dieser Theudasist mit dem Theudas, den Gamaliel in seiner Rede erwähnt, nicht identisch; der Theudas von Apg.5:36 trat etwa zwei Jahrzehnte vor JESUS Wirken auf).

Der Ägyptische Prophet
Nach dem Bericht von Josephus (Der Jüd. Krieg 11,13,5, vgl. Apg. 21,38) folgte dem Theudas bald ein anderer Erlöser, der sog. “ÄGYPTISCHE PROPHET”, der einige tausend Anhänger um sich scharte und der gemäß der Prophetie Sacharjas den Ölberg spalten wollte (Sach.14,4). Seine Gläubigen wurden um das Jahr 55 zerstreut, und er selbst ergriff die Flucht.

Der Führer der Zeloten, MENACHEM, erfreute sich bei seinen Anhängern messianischer Anerkennung. Davon sind noch Andeutungen im Talmud erhalten. Die Zeloten waren eine radikale politische jüdische Richtung, die auf den Aufstand Judas des Galiläers (vgl. Apg.5,37) zurückgeht. Sie besaßen ein starkes Nationalgefühl und lehnten die Besteuerung der Juden durch die römische Besatzungsmacht unter dem Landpfleger Quirinus strikt ab. Die von den Zeloten entfalteten theologisch-messianischen Ideen zielten darauf ab, GOTT als den einzigen Regenten der jüdischen Nation anzuerkennen. Schließlich wollten sie die Römer mit Gewalt vertreiben, wodurch im Jahre 66 der 7-jährige jüdische Krieg entfesselt wurde. Zur Zeit dieses ersten jüdischen Aufstands schlugen die Juden eigene Münzen. Die Rückseite des Silberschekels trug die Inschrift “Jerusalem, die Heilige (Stadt)”. Während der Kämpfe tobten die Zeloten nicht nur gegen die Römer, sondern auch gegen gemäßigte Elemente im eigenen Volk. Der Freiheitskampf der Zeloten wurde von den Römern unter dem Oberkommando des Sohnes des Kaisers Vespasian (69-79), Titus (später Kaiser von 79-81), blutig unterdrückt. Dabei kamen tausende Juden ums Leben. Flavius Josephus war schon im Jahre 67 als gegen Rom kämpfender jüdischer General in römische Gefangenschaft geraten, IM JAHRE 70 FIEL JERUSALEM (ZERSTÖRUNG DES TEMPELS) und im Jahre 73 das letzte Bollwerk der Zeloten, nämlich die Festung Massada in der judäischen Wüste, die einst von Herodes I. in den Jahren 36-30 v. Chr. ausgebaut worden war. Diese wurde nach längerer Belagerung unter dem römischen Feldherrn Flavius Suva und seiner (zehnten) Legion erstürmt, wobei die dort Widerstand leistenden Zeloten Massen-Selbst- mord begingen, um nicht in die Hände der Römer zu fallen. - JESUS prophezeite diesen jüdisch-römischen Krieg in Seinen Endzeitreden (zum Beispiel: Mt.24,1.2; Mk.13,5-7; Lk. 21,20-22). Bald nach diesem ersten jüdischen Krieg schrieb Josephus sein bedeutendes Werk “Der Jüdische Krieg”. Es enthält in sieben Büchern die Geschichte des Landes Israel, von den Makkabäerkriegen (ab 167 v.Chr.) bis zum Fall der Zelotenfestung Massada (73 n. Chr.).

Bar Kochba
BAR KOCHBA (= "Sternensohn", in Anlehnung an die Sternenweissagung des Bileam in 4.Mo. 24,17), der eigentlich Schimon ben Kos(e)ba hieß, war der Führer der Juden im zweiten jüdischen Aufstand gegen die Römer (132-135). Selbst von dem bekannten Rabbi Akiba (um 50 geboren, 135 hingerichtet), Vater des Rabbinismus, wurde er als Messias bzw. als Messiaskönig begrüßt. Akiba deutete den Bileamspruch als Zustimmung zur messianischen Anerkennung seines Günstlings Bar Kochba, der den von Hes .37,24.25 und den Qumrantexten (Qumran hatte eine Zweimessiaslehre) auf den neuen Davidmessias angewandten Titel “Fürst” führte, obwohl über seine eventuelle stammbaummäßige Abkunft von David nichts bekannt ist. Auch in diesem zweiten jüdischen Freiheitskrieg, dem Aufstand des Bar Kochba, wurden eigene Münzen geprägt. Die Rückseite der Silbertetradrachme trug die Inschrift “Befreiung Jerusalems”; andere Münzen trugen neben Bar Kochbas Name auch den Namen eines Priesters, genannt Eleazar (vgl. die Funde von Murabbaat in der judäischen Wüste an der Westseite des Toten Meeres). Anfangs hatte Bar Kochba glänzende militärische Erfolge gegen das Römische Imperium unter Kaiser Hadrian und dementsprechend großen Zulauf von Anhängern. Doch gelang es dem von Hadrian aus Britannien herbeigerufenen Feldherrn Julius Severus, nach kurzer Zeit Jerusalem einzunehmen. Schließlich nahm er im Jahre 135 auch die Festung Bether (bei Bethlehem) ein, wohin sich Bar Kochba zurückgezogen hatte, und wo er dann nach hartnäckigem Widerstand im Kampf fiel. Das Land Israel wurde in “PALÄSTINA” (= “LAND DER PHILISTER”) umbenannt. ... - Nach dieser Niederlage wird der ehemalige Held Bar Kochba in den talmudischen Quellen “Ben Kozeba” (= “Lügensohn”; vgl. Sanhedrin 93b) genannt.

Mose aus Kreta
Auch im Ausland waren Messias-Bewegungen nicht selten, obwohl die Geschichte nur wenige festhielt. Etwa um die Zeit, als die im 4. Jhd. entstandene römische Staatskirche ihre Konzilien von Ephesos (431) und von Chalkedon (451) abhielt, um einige, vom biblischen Standpunkt aus nicht haltbare philosophische Dogmen zu fixieren (z. B. wurde 431 für Maria, der Mutter JESU, die Bezeichnung “Mutter Gottes” gebilligt), trat auf der Insel Kreta ein gewisser MOSE auf. Er wollte die Juden Kretas durch ein gespaltetes Mittelmeer hindurch, auf trockenem Boden, nach Palästina bringen. Viele stürzten sich ins Meer und ertranken.

Abu-Isa Isfahani
lm 7. Jahrhundert kam die von Anbeginn mit der jüdischen Religion rivalisierende Religion des Islam auf (schon der “Prophet” Muhammad, der Begründer der neuen Gesetzesreligion des Islam, ließ wegen machtpolitischer Erwägungen viele Juden in Arabien umbringen, zwangsumsiedeln, ...), und ein neuer Feind (oder besser gesagt: ein alter Feind unter dem Namen einer neuen Religion) entstand: die Araber. In den von den Arabern eroberten Ländern Vorder- und Mittelasiens entstanden unter dem dort ansässigen jüdischen Volk immer wieder messianische Bewegungen, die eine politische Befreiung ihres Volkes anstrebten. Während der Wirren im arabisch-omaijadischen Kalifat in den letzten Jahrzehnten des 7. Jhds. versuchte der Schneider und “Prophet” ABU-ISA ISFAHANI (hebr.: Isaak ben Jakob Obadja) aus Isfahan in Persien einen Aufstand gegen die Araber. Isa ist das arabisch-muslimische Wort für JESUS. Seine Anhänger wurden nach ihm Isawiten genannt. Abu-Isa (arab.: Vater-Jesus) soll, obgleich ganz unwissend, auf wunderbare Weise mehrere Schriften verfasst haben. In der Zeit des Omaijaden-Kalifen Abd Al-Malik von Damaskus, um 685 bis 705, gab er sich als Messias aus und wollte die Juden aus dem Galut (= gewaltsame Verbannung aus dem Heimatland, im Gegensatz zur Diasporá) befreien und ihre politische Selbständigkeit wieder herstellen. Abu-Isa setzte gemäß Ps. 119,164 sieben Pflicht-Gebetszeiten ein, verbot den Genuss von Wein und Fleisch (außer dem Fleisch vom Hirsch und vom Geflügel, nicht aber vom Huhn), erklärte den Opferkult für aufgehoben und verbot die Ehescheidung selbst im Falle des Ehebruchs. Als Abu-Isa an der Spitze einer Schar von zehntausenden Anhängern die Muslime angriff, geriet er in Gefangenschaft und wurde hingerichtet. Aber seine Anhänger, die sich teilweise um seinen Schüler Judgan versammelt hatten, glaubten nicht an seinen Tod, sondern daran, dass er in einer Höhle verborgen lebe. Sie erwarteten seine Wiederkunft als Messias, um Israel vom Joch der Völker zu befreien. - Die Isawiten gingen allmählich im sogenannten Karäertum auf, das, von Anan ben David in Persien begründet, einige Jahrzehnte später entstand. Doch lebten Doch in der ersten Hälfte des 10.Jhds. etwa 20 Isawiten in Damaskus.

Seren aus Syrien
Nur etliche Jahre später, ebenfalls noch in der Zeit der Omaijaden-Kalifen von Damaskus (661-750), tauchte in Syrien ein neuer Pseudomessias auf: SEREN(US), auch SCHARINI genannt. Er gedachte, die Muslime aus Palästina zu verdrängen und fand bei den Juden zahlreichen Anhang. Offenbar wurde er von den gesetzestreuen Juden bekämpft, so dass er sich durch Abschaffung mehrerer Gesetze des Talmud (besonders der Speiseverbote) am offiziellen Judentum rächen wollte. - Zu einem Waffengang scheint es hier gar nicht erst gekommen zu sein, denn Scharini wurde ergriffen und vor den Kalifen Jazid geführt. Dem Kalifen tat er kund, dass er die Juden betören wollte, worauf ihn der Kalif den rechtlichen Behörden der Juden zur Bestrafung übergab (721 n. Chr.). Nachdem seine Gefolgs- leute öffentlich ausgepeitscht worden waren und dem talmudischen Gesetz erneut ihre Treue gelobt hatten, wurden sie wieder ins Judentum eingegliedert.

David Alroy
Im Zeitalter der KREUZZÜGE herrschte unter den Juden sowohl in Europa als auch im Orient eine messianische Stimmung. Damals tauchten mehrere Lügen-Messiasse auf, deren Namen nicht überliefert sind, darunter ist einer aus Jemen (1172), von dem der mittelalterliche Religionsphilosoph Maimonides (1135-1204) in einem Sendschreiben (Iggeret Teman) redet. Eine der bekanntesten Messias-Bewegungen jener Zeit war diejenige des DAVID ALROY. Er hieß auch Menachem ben Suleiman Al-Ruhi. Er stammte aus Amadia in Aserbeidschan und rief sich um 1160 selbst zum Messias aus (natürlich betrachtete er sich als “Messias” im Sinne des Judentums, nämlich als politischer Befreier und Held, und nicht als Befreier von der Sünde(!) im Sinne des biblischen Verständnisses). An der Spitze der kriegerischen Bergjuden wollte er den messianischen Kampf gegen die muslimischen Machthaber aufnehmen und Jerusalem von den Muslimen befreien. Seine Messias-Bewegung reichte bis nach Bagdad, das von 750 bis 1258 Zentrum des Kalifenreiches der Dynastie der Abbasiden war. Schließlich wurde Alroy auf Betreiben seiner Feinde, die ihn mehrmals warnten, das ganze Judentum mit seinem Aufruhr zu gefährden, durch seinen eigenen Schwiegervater hinterhältig im Schlaf umgebracht. Dadurch verlief sich seine Anhängerschaft allmählich, obgleich die pseudo-messianische Gemeinschaft, der nach ihm benannten "Menachemiten", noch etliche Jahre unter den Juden Aserbeidschans bestand.

Abraham Abulafia
Jerusalem war von 1099 (= Ende des ersten Kreuzzuges) bis 1187 Mittelpunkt des von den Kreuzfahrern errichteten Königreichs Jerusalem. Nach der Wiedereroberung Jerusalems durch die Sarazenen (1187 siegt Sultan Saladin aus der Dynastie der Aijubiden in der Schlacht von Hattin in Galiläa) und dem missglückten dritten Kreuzzug (1189-1192) wuchs die messianische Stimmung in Europa. Von 1211 ab wanderten zahlreiche jüdische Gelehrte (etwa 300) aus England, Nord- und Südfrankreich ins Land ihrer Väter ein. - Die messianische Stimmung wurde auch wegen der Judendiskriminierungen durch Papst Innozenz III. (1198-1216), insbe- sondere wegen des 4. lateranischen Konzils (1215) mit seinem Ämterverbot und seiner Kleiderordnung für Juden, verstärkt, - Dazu kam noch der große mongolische Völkersturm, der für viele Juden als Beginn der Erlösung galt. 1223 siegten die Mongolen in brutalen Kämpfen in der Gegend der Don-Mündung am Schwarzen Meer, 1240 in Kiew und 1241 in der Schlacht von Liegnitz/Niederschlesien und am Sajo-Fluss/Ungarn. Schon im Jahre 1235 sollen sämtliche Prager Juden aus der Stadt ausgezogen sein, um sich nach Palästina durchzuschlagen. Mit der Verbreitung des kabbalistischen Mystizismus stieg auch die Zahl der Schwärmer, die sich messianische Eigenschaften zuschrieben. In der zweiten Hälfte des 13. Jhds. trat der in Saragossa (Spanien) 1240 geborene und nach 1291 gestorbene ABRAHAM ABULAFIA als Messias auf (vor allem in Sizilien) . Diesem folgten später mehrere andere Kabbalisten. Er führte ein unstetes und abenteuerliches Leben. Mit 18 Jahren wanderte er nach Palästina aus, und später hielt er sich in Spanien, Griechenland und Italien auf. Hier sammelte er auch Schüler um sich (Joseph ibn Gikatilla, ...). Im Jahre 1280 wollte er Papst Nikolaus III. zum Judentum bekehren. Abulafia bezeichnete sich als Vertreter einer “prophetischen Kabbala”, indem er durch Askese, Zahlen- und Buchstabenmystik (speziell im Hinblick auf die Gottesnamen) eine unmittelbare Vereinigung mit Gott anstrebte. Für ihn galten die Religionsphilosophie und die theoretische Kabbala als Vorstufen jener höheren Kabbala, deren Inhalt Lehre und Gebrauch der Gottesnamen bildet. Zu seinen Lebzeiten tauchte der Sohar (= “Lichtglanz”), das klassische Hauptwerk der Kabbala, geschrieben in einem dem Rabbinischen ähnlichen Aramäisch, zuerst in Spanien auf. Von einigen Kennern wird Abulafia für den Verfasser gehalten. Im kabbalistischen Judentum erlangte der Sohar neben Bibel und Talmud - die Bedeutung des heiligsten Buches.

Ascher Lemmlein
Der von der röm. kath. Kirche ab 1391 in Spanien auf die Juden ausgeübte Druck endete 1492 auf Betreiben des Großinquisitors Tomas de Torquemada mit deren Ausweisung. Vier Jahre später wurden die Juden auch aus Portugal ausgewiesen. Nach der Vertreibung der Juden aus Spanien war die Zeit für das Auftreten eines politischen Messias wieder einmal reif. Um 1502 rief sich der deutsche Jude ASCHER LEMMLEIN in Istrien zum Messias aus und forderte von seinen Anhängern, zu denen auch mehrere Rabbinen zählten, Andacht, Fasten und Buße als Bedingungen für die bevorstehende Erlösung für sie. Durch den Messias würden sie in einer Wolken- und Feuersäule zurück ins Land der Väter, nach Erez Jisrael (hebr. Name für Palästina), gebracht werden. Nicht nur in Italien (Friaul, ...), sondern auch in Deutschland fand Lemmlein Anhänger. Als aber die von Lemmlein in Aussicht gestellte Frist für dieses Geschehen ablief, geschah nichts, und dadurch wandte sich so mancher enttäuschte Jude dem Christentum zu.

Salomo Molcho
Auch das Auftauchen von Männern wie David Reubeni, der zu einer Art jüdischen Kreuzzuges gegen die Türken aufrief, und SALOMO MOLCHO, der sich selbst messianische Bedeutung zuschrieb, zog eine Messias-Bewegung nach sich. Im Sprachge- brauch des ausgehenden Mittelalters und der beginnenden Neuzeit ist ein Marrane ein zur römisch katholischen Kirche zwangsbekehrter Jude der iberischen Halbinsel, der sich aber insgeheim weiterhin zu seinem jüdischen Glauben bekennt. Salomo Molcho wurde um 1500 geboren und starb 1532 auf dem Scheiterhaufen. Als portugiesischer Marrane hieß er Diego Pires. Das Auftreten des aus Arabien (Chaibar) stammenden, den Kreuzzug propagierenden Reubeni in Portugal entzündete bei Molcho eine phantastische Schwärmerei. Bis dahin war er Geheimschreiber an einem hohen Gerichtshof in Lissabon gewesen. Nun aber kam es zur offenen Rückkehr zum Judentum. Er vollzog eigenhändig die Beschneidung an sich und nahm den Namen Salomo Molcho an. Von dem offenen Bruch eines Marranen mit dem Katholizismus befürchtete Reubeni im Zeitalter der Inquisition wohl eine Schwächung seiner eigenen bereits erworbenen politischen Stellung am portugiesischen Hof und wies möglicher- weise deshalb Molcho ab. Er riet ihm, sich zunächst in die Türkei zu begeben, wo er in Saloniki (damals türkisch und ein Zentrum der Kabbalisten) von Josef Taitazak in die Geheimnisse der Kabbala eingeweiht wurde und in Edirne (= Adrianopel) mit Josef Karo, dem Verfasser des “Schulchan Aruch” (= “gedeckter Tisch”), in Verbindung trat. Später hielt er sich in Palästina, besonders in Safed, dem Zentrum der orientalischen Kabbala, das nach der Vertrei- bung der Juden aus Spanien entstanden war, auf. 1529 n. Chr. war er in Rom. Dort lebte er, um einer messianischen Legende Folge zu leisten. 30 Tage lang, in Lumpen gehüllt, unter dem bettelnden Volk an der Tiberbrücke gegenüber dem Papstpalast, hatte Visionen, die auf die nahe bevorstehende Ankunft des Messias hindeuteten, schickte Sendschreiben hierüber an seine Freunde in Saloniki und predigte von den Hoffnungen in der großen Synagoge der Hauptstadt. Die Inquisition wurde jedoch auf ihn aufmerksam, so dass er sich nach Venedig aufmachte, wo er 1530 mit Reubeni zusammentraf. Inzwischen wurde Rom, wie Molcho angekündigt hatte, von einer schweren Überschwemmung, und Portugal, das Zentrum der Marranen-Verfolgung, von einem Erdbeben heimgesucht. Diese Ereignisse waren für Molcho der Beweis für den Anbruch der messianischen Zeit. Nach Rom zurückgekehrt, predigte er nunmehr ganz offen den “Untergang Edoms” (= Roms) und die Ankunft des Messias. Dabei gewann er für seine visionäre Propaganda sowohl Juden als auch Katholiken, ja selbst Papst Clemens VII. Doch setzte der einfluss- reiche jüdische Arzt Jakob Mantino bei der Inquisition die Verurteilung Molchos zum Tode auf dem Scheiterhaufen durch. Er floh nach Deutschland und begab sich gemeinsam mit Reubeni (mit einer hebräischen Fahne) nach Regensburg, um auf dem im Jahre 1532 mit dem Ziel der Glaubenseinheit zwischen Katholiken und Protestanten einberufenen Reichstag zu Regensburg Kaiser Karl V. zu einem Kriegszug gegen die Türken zu bewegen. Der Kaiser empfing beide zu einer Audienz. Doch wurden sie festgenommen, nach Mantua in Italien gebracht und der Inquisition übergeben. Molcho, erneut zum Feuertod verurteilt, lehnte eine begnadigende Rückkehr zur röm.kath. Kirche ab, und so starb er im Jahre 1532 den Tod eines jüdischen Märtyrers.

Isaak Lurja
Später galten als Messiasse die bekannten Kabbalisten ISAAK LURJA (1534-1572) und CHAJIM VITAL (1543-1620), der nach der Heimat seiner Familie CALABRESE zubenannt war. Lurja wurde zum Begründer der neueren (“lurjanischen”) Kabbala und hat u.a. die im Sohar nur angedeutete Seelenwanderungslehre ausgebaut. Im Chassidismus wurde sie dann zum allgemeinen Volksglauben. In Safed, der Höhenstadt in Galiläa, der Wirkungsstätte Lurjas und Vitals, von wo aus man aufgrund einer Sohar-Stelle das Auftreten des Messias erwartete, sammelte sich eine zahlreiche Jüngerschaft (z.B.: Jakob Zemach, Israel Sarug). Sie schrieb die nur mündlich gegebenen Lehren des früh verstorbenben Meisters nieder und verbreitete sie dann in allen Diaspora-Ländern der Juden (Deutschland, Hol- land, Italien, Polen, ,..). Und dadurch entstanden im Volk gewisse Messiaserwartungen.

Schabbatai Zwi
Eine der nachhaltigsten Messias-Bewegungen war die des SCHABBATAI ZWI (1626-1676) in der zweiten Hälfte des 17.Jahrhunderts. Schabbatai Zwi wurde 1626 in Smyrna (= Izmir/Türkei) als Sohn jüdischer Eltern geboren. Bereits als 15-jähriger Knabe war er mit der talmudischen und rabbinischen Literatur und bald auch mit dem Sohar und den Schriften des Isaak Lurja und Chajim Vital aufs innigste vertraut. Einige Zeit lebte er dann völlig asketisch und ließ sich deshalb von seinen beiden ersten Frauen scheiden. In den Kreisen der Kabbalisten war die Ankunft des Messias aufgrund einer Soharstelle für das Jahr 1648 vorausgesagt worden. Von dieser Anschauung erfuhr auch Schabbatai Zwi, der, als er von den Judenmetzeleien in der Ukraine erfuhr, diese als die “Geburtswehen des Messias” bezeichnete und die Zeit für ein aktives politisches Eingreifen in die Geschichte der Juden für reif hielt. Mit der Begründung, dass der Messias, für den er sich hielt, schon gekommen sei, wagte er den 4-buchstabigen Gottesnamen (Tetragramm) öffentlich auszusprechen. Seiner Meinung nach würde auch bald die Zeit für politische Erfolge anbrechen. In Kairo lernte er in einem kabbalistischen Zirkel einige weitere Anhänger kennen. Bald sahen die Schabbatianer in dem aschkenasischen Juden aus Gaza namens Nathan den Propheten Elia, der nach der Überlieferung den Messias begleiten würde. Als Zwi bald darauf wieder nach Kairo kam, wurde er in jenem Zirkel bereits als Messias empfangen. Hier vermählte er sich mit einem Mädchen namens Sara aus Polen, das sich bereits vorher selbst als die künftige Braut des Messias ausgegeben hatte. Flugschriften und flammende Aufrufe, verfasst von Nathan von Gaza, gingen in die ganze Welt hinaus, um im Judentum die sichere Überzeugung von der Ankunft des Messias zu wecken. Auch Fasten, Kasteiungen usw. wurden ausgerufen. . . . Zwi hatte in vielen Ländern seine Anhänger, und zwar sowohl unter Rabbinen als auch unter Laien. Auch der Religionsphilosoph Spinoza (1632-1677), der 1656 aus der jüdischen Synagoge ausgeschlossen wurde, sah in Zwi eine mögliche Hoffnung für die Juden. ... Doch die muslimischen Türken nahmen Zwi in Gewahrsam und zwangen ihn unter Androhung der Todesstrafe zum Übertritt zum Islam (1666). Als Ausläufer dieser schabbatianischen Bewegung kann auch der neuere Chassidismus und in gewissem Sinne der Frankismus (benannt nach Jakob Frank, einem Anhänger von Zwi) betrachtet werden. Jakob Frank (1726-1791) wurde in der heutigen Nord-West- Ukraine geboren.). - Zionistische Bewegungen, die zwar mit der Zielsetzung “Palästina für das jüdische Volk” auftreten, aber des religiösen Elements entbehren, sind eher als “säkularisierter Messianismus” einzustufen.

Menachem Schneerson
Seit 1948 gibt es im Orient wieder einen Staat namens Israel, und viele Juden aus verschiedenen Ländern der Welt sind inzwischen ins Land ihrer Väter heimgekehrt. Auch das heutige ungläubige Israel ist gerade dabei, einem falschen Messias (vgl. Joh. 5,43 u.a.) sein Vertrauen zu schenken.

Erst kürzlich versandte die weltweit organisierte jüdisch-orthodoxe “Chabad-Bewegung”, die von zahlungskräftigen Juden finanziell unterhalten wird, die neueste Ausrufung ihres Messias Rabbi MENACHEM SCHNEERSON (auch “Lubawitscher Rebbe” genannt) an alle Haushalte, und zwar mit der Überschrift “Lang lebe der König” und dem Untertitel “Der letzte Schritt zum wirklichen und vollen Heil”. Hier wird aufgefordert, mehr in der Thora zu studieren und die “guten Taten” zu praktizieren. Nun gilt nur noch, den “König Messias, den Rabbi von Lubawitsch, zu krönen”, was durch die Verkündigung “Lang lebe unser Herr, Meister und Rabbi, der König-Messias in Ewigkeit” zu geschehen hat. ... Obwohl die heutigen Juden keine Stammbäume bis in die alttestamentliche Zeit aufweisen können, behauptet die Chabad-Bewegung, dass ihr Messias dem königlichen Hause David entstamme. Und: “Seine Eminenz, der Rabbi von Lubawitsch, ist neben seiner Genialität und Rechtschaffenheit bekannt für seine besonders königliche Erscheinung”. Unter Bezugnahme auf Jes. 25,8 und 40,4 untermauern die Chabad-Leute die Messianität ihres Rebben und behaupten, dass jeder, der an ihn als den Messias glaubt, nicht aus dem Buch des Lebens gestrichen wird, ... In dieser Kundgebung ist auch von der Wiedererrichtung des Tempels durch den Messias und der Sammlung der in alle Länder der Erde zerstreuten Juden die Rede. Ferner davon, dass der Messias gemäß Sach. 9,10 Kriege für Gott auf Wegen des Friedens führen würde. Auch der Sohar, das magisch-mystizi- stische Buch der Kabbala, wird im Aufruf zur “Krönung des Königs” erwähnt. Gegen Ende dieser Proklamation erfolgt in einer Krönungsformel die Aufforderung an den jüdischen Leser, diese Kundgebung mit vollem Namen zu unterschreiben und auch den Namen der Mutter und anderer Freunde anzugeben, wodurch ihnen dann der Segen Gottes zuteil würde. Rabbi Schneerson, für den die Chabad-Juden seit Jahren weltweit Werbung betreiben, lebt im fernen New York und hat bisher noch nie israelischen Boden betreten. An diesem Pseudo-Messias sehen wir, wie spät es an der Weltenuhr bereits ist und wie nah DIE WIEDERKUNFT DES WIRKLICHEN MESSIAS, nämlich des HERRN JESUS, bevorsteht.

Die Messiasvorstellung im Judentum

A) Kollektive Messiasvorstellung:
DAS GESAMTE VOLK ISRAEL wird nach Jesaja 53 als GOTTESKNECHT betrachtet.  Durch sein Leiden und seinen Dienst führt es die Nationen zur Gerechtigkeit und Erlösung.

B) Personale Messiasvorstellung!
Der Messias der Juden ist EIN POLITISCH- RELIGIÖSER HELD, der Israel politische Befreiung bringen soll. Ihm obliegt die Aufgabe der nationalen Wiederherstellung des jüdischen Volkes.

ER VERSÖHNT DIE MENSCHEN NICHT MIT GOTT, wie JESUS es tat, und IST NICHT MITTLER ZWISCHEN GOTT UND MENSCH, wie der Mensch JESUS es ist, und deshalb gibt es durch ihn auch KEINE SÜNDENVERGEBUNG von GOTT, wie sie JESUS schenkt.

Im Judentum ist man in der personalen Messiasvorstellung geteilter Meinung. Im Zuge der talmudischen Entwicklung tritt zu dem MESSIAS BEN DAVID (dem königlichen Messias) als sein Vorläufer ein MESSIAS BEN JOSEF (ein kriegerischer Messias) (Rabbi Dossa in Suk. 52a). Er sammelt die zerstreuten Kinder Israel und richtet in dem von Feinden gereinigten Jerusalem den alten Tempeldienst wieder ein. - Als ein Eckpfeiler des jüdischen Glaubens ist die Bitte um das baldige Erscheinen des Messias in das tägliche Gebet aufgenommen worden.
