This series of articles will attempt to use a Biblical perspective as a means of understanding the push of conspiracy theorists toward anti-Semitism.
Please understand that if you are an anti-Semite, this series isn’t for you. I believe, as Paul, that anti-Semites are ignorant and conceited.
“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.” Rom 11:25.
As such, I don’t expect you to “get it” much like the modern atheist won’t “get it” when you give them evidence of God’s existence. If you go down the path of atheism or anti-Semitism, then you cross into territory where you DON’T WANT evidence unless it fits your agenda. Another example would be the Roman Catholic handling of history in my last series of articles.
The Bible is a Jewish book (Rom 3:2). Your Saviour is a Jew. The apostle to the Gentiles was a Jew. If you curse the Jews, then you are cursed according to Numbers 23:9. And yet in spite of all this evidence there are fools who pretend to go by the Bible and yet go against the Jewish people. If that doesn’t persuade you to love the Jews (Rom 11:28), then certainly nothing in this article will.
This series is for people that actually want to know why conspiracy minded people tend towards anti-Semitism. The answer is that they have fallen for what I term “The Hofjuden Fallacy”.
“Hofjuden” is a German word that would be translated in English as “Court Jews”. What I propose to demonstrate is that the real dark powers and forces of the world USE Jewish people to deflect attention away from their own activities so that they can sneak away and still maintain the appearance of being “squeaky clean”. The powers that run the conspiracies of this world will be shown to be the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.
We will see how this is given as a precedent in the Bible and then we will look at the most clear example in history: communism. This will be fleshed out over the next couple of articles.
First, I would like to look at the story of Naboth to see how the Bible predicted that conspiracy people would end up being anti-Semites. Amazing how God knows this stuff ahead of time…
We are in I Kings 21.
1 And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jez-reelite had a vineyard, (type of the land of Israel – Isaiah 5) which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. (type of Antichrist)
2 And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, (world covets the land of Israel) that I may have it for a garden of herbs, (candid admission that world can’t make land of Israel as abundant and bountiful as it should be [borne out by 2000 years of Gentile occupation of the land which turned “Palestine” into a wasteland]) because it is near unto my house: (just look at a map, Israel is right in everyone’s way) and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; (read up on the other locations that people tried to move the Jews to, including Uganda, Madagascar, and Siberia.) or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
3 And Naboth said to Ahab, The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee. (None of the other Zions work out. Israel is their land)
4 And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jez-reelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread. (Amazing how the Gentiles can’t figure out how to handle Israel and it messes them up.)
5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, (Type of Roman Catholic Church – Rev 2) and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?
6 And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.
7 And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. (Now we’re starting to see who the real power behind the throne is. The Bible says of Rome that, “by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” [Rev 18:23])
8 So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, (Roman Catholic forgeries could fill an entire encyclopedia…Note the corruption of church history by Rome given in our previous series of articles) and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth. (Political manipulation is the name of Rome’s game.)
9 And she wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, (Rome is REALLY pious…) and set Naboth on high among the people: (See how the plan is to lift a guy up in order to make them a better target to tear down.)
10 And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, (here’s your conspiracy theorists. Notice they are run by Rome. The modern equivalent is Alex Jones and guys like Jay Dyer. The rule of thumb is that if they cannot get to the conclusion that Rome is running things, then they are either an idiot or a pawn in Rome’s control. Either way, dump them if you’ve got any sense.) saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die. (We see Israel, in type, is pictured as dead in the Church Age and into the Tribulation, like the dry bones in a valley in Ezekiel 37. See also Isaiah 26:19-21 and Hosea 13:14)
11 And the men of his city, even the elders and the nobles who were the inhabitants in his city, did as Jezebel had sent unto them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent unto them. (It’s like reading the headline behind the headlines. Rome is running the shows behind the shadows in 2021. Have no doubt of that.)
12 They proclaimed a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people.
13 And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before him: and the men of Belial witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. (Politics and Religion. The two things that matter the most that people say we should never discuss… Notice that this has nothing to do with evidence. Did Naboth do this? No one knows. There is nothing that I can think of that says you should kill a man for blaspheming the king. Also, notice that on the subject of blaspheming God, the real culprits are Jezebel and Ahab. See how evidence doesn’t even factor into the equation?) Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died.
14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead.
15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.
16 And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it. (Happens in the Tribulation.)
17 And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, (If you had any doubt of my last comment, this should remove it. We are now literally in Rev 11 where Elijah preaches to the Antichrist [Ahab, in type.])
18 Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it.
19 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine. (Antichrist dies in the land of Israel.)
20 And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? (The Antichrist is a Jewish man that hates Jewish prophets [we see this phenomenon throughout history, especially in Judas Iscariot [the Son of Perdition…]. One could make the argument that the Antichrist is the ultimate fulfillment of the idea of Hofjuden.) And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.
21 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, (looks like Psalm 109:13 to me.)
22 And will make thine house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the provocation wherewith thou hast provoked me to anger, and made Israel to sin.
23 And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
24 Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat. (The whole episode ends with a reference to the end of the Tribulation and the end of the Battle of Armageddon in Rev 19 where we see birds coming to feed on the remains of those in the Antichrist’s army.)
Brother, if this stuff doesn’t blow you away and make you appreciate that book, then nothing can. The God of history is “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” Isa 46:10.
If you can’t see this stuff, then you’ll be bound to fall for the Hofjuden fallacy. My next article will go more into an actual Biblical example of a Hofjuden in Scripture: the Story of Joseph in Egypt. After that we will trace this principle through the last 1000 years or so and make application to today. Lord willing, this will shed some light on history and conspiracy theories for you.
The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. Psa 119:130
