Chapter 48, part 1: HAARP, Yokes, and the Wine of Mystery Babylon
Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, part 141—Mystery Babylon is God’s servant!
To introduce today’s lecture, I trust our readers will remember how some lectures back I was teaching so much history and quoting so very few Bible verses that I felt I had to explain to those not familiar with my teaching style that such an emphasis on history was absolutely necessary in order to understand how God has caused the fulfillment of His prophetic word.
I also stated back then that there would also be lectures in due time that would be just loaded with Scriptures. Well, this is one of those. This is lecture #48 in a series called Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom. The title of this lecture is HAARP, the Yokes, and the Wine of Mystery Babylon.
The previous lecture was called The Yoke of Mystery Babylon: Wooden or Iron? We closed last time by my giving you a thumbnail sketch of this idea of the wooden yoke versus the iron yoke. I told you that I would present the unabridged version in the next lecture, so that is what we shall now commence.
If you recall, we noted how Mystery Babylon, headed by the House of Edom, had used every evil trick and cunning device to gain control over the money system of America. They finally succeeded in formalizing that in the form of the Federal Reserve System in late December 1913 and early 1914 when it commenced operation.
Although the head of the Fed—as it is called—is appointed by the President, one should not make the mistake of thinking that the Fed is a government agency. The Fed has stockholders, and the secret owners of the Class A stock are the families of the House of Edom, as we delineated in a prior lecture.
Unlike other corporations where profit is made and distributed to the owners after considerable costs of labor and materials are deducted, consider how the Fed makes money for its secret owners.
In brief, the Fed was granted the power to create money out of thin air and lend it into circulation and then charge interest on those loans to boot! It is quite an ingenious scheme of theft and fraud when you think about it.
With that virtually unlimited number of blank checks, so to speak, at its disposal, the House of Edom has thus been enabled to not only gain control over our government, but it also enables their control over all the major corporations (including the banks, and the Fortune 500) through the stock market and through the power of bank loans.
We could further review how this same control filters down over all the dominant media and education and medicine and law and many churches—the combined effect of all of that keeps the population in the dark as to what has happened to them and to their freedoms.
In other words, the net result of all this is that America has been put into a form of bondage, of economic slavery, of captivity, with pervasive mind control, for the past 100 years. But it was so cunningly and deceitfully done that we, as a nation, have not even known that we have been enslaved.
And therefore, in the Bible, this worldwide system is denoted as a mystery... Mystery Babylon the Great. I shared with you Ron Oja’s revelation that because the Fed came into existence by the signature of President Wood-row Wilson, that it was part of God’s sign language to those with eyes to see, that we had been placed under the wooden yoke.
Mystery Babylon is a world-ruling system and while we in America were placed under the wooden yoke, the countries of eastern Europe and those of the Soviet Union were placed under the iron yoke. It was Winston Churchill who first referred to those people under the brutal domination of communism as being behind the iron curtain.
To us who understand this as God’s sign language, it showed the contrast between the iron yoke and the wooden yoke. The wooden yoke is a much lighter form of bondage and captivity. Let us now examine these symbols in God’s word.
Jeremiah 27:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD [Yahweh], saying,
2 Thus saith the LORD [Yahweh] to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,
Allow me to paint a word picture for us here concerning these bonds and yokes. Having looked up the Hebrew words, I visualize the yoke like this. You may have seen a picture of it, depicting bygone eras when a person had a yoke around their neck to help them carry two buckets of water, one on each end of the yoke.
The yoke itself was a piece of wood that was about four to five feet long, maybe about two inches thick and the width varies because it is rounded out where it fits around your neck and then tapers off a bit as it goes out to the ends. Then there is a rope on each end which is attached to a bucket of water or whatever the burden is.
The word “bonds” could have been rendered “bands” just as well. It refers to the leather straps which attached to the yoke on one end and then it is fastened on the other end it to your body, whether it goes around your neck or under your arms. The point is that the yoke was a device to enable you to carry a burden.
Thus it is a fitting symbol for a nation that is in a bondage or captivity. The people of the nation bear the burden of that servitude in one manner or another. Alright, with that picture in mind, here is what Jeremiah was commanded to do with these sets of yokes and bonds or bands. First, he was instructed to wear one on his own neck.
Jeremiah 27:3 And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah;
Some of you may have noticed that in verse one, it says: In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah,” and here it says “...unto Zedekiah king of Judah.” The problem is that Zedekiah did not reign until about 11 years after the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim.
Some Bible commentators think that this apparent contradiction is a scribal error. I am always reluctant to call supposed contradictions scribal errors. That’s a slippery slope. I always look first for another way to reconcile the supposed contradiction. In this case, I think there is a way to understand it without resorting to calling it a scribal error.
Here is how I see it. We know that the Bible is a very compact set of books in that it often greatly condenses a story, thus omitting much material that would explain many questions which are raised.
If you have read the book of Jasher, you get some idea of just how much more there was to many of the stories all the way from the story of Adam and Eve up to Joshua.
This could be a story that is likewise condensed. It could have happened that God told Jeremiah early in the reign of Jehoiakim to make all those yokes, and he himself would have worn his own yoke beginning at that time. I do not imagine that he wore it every day, but perhaps only from time to time.
But then, about eleven years later, under the reign of King Zedekiah, God told Jeremiah to pull the rest of the yokes out of his closet and send them at this time to the various kings by the hand of their ambassadors. And along with the yokes, went some instructions to the ambassadors on what they should tell their respective kings was the meaning of this yoke.
Jeremiah 27:4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD [Yahweh] of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;
5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.
May I just say that here we have another incontrovertible statement by God Almighty concerning His absolute and total sovereignty over all of His creation.
6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.
You caught that, didn’t you? God says that this king of Babylon—who was as abominable and evil as any ruler that ever was—that that man was God’s servant!
We have been studying about the House of Edom and the rulers of Mystery Babylon for many lectures now and may I suggest to you that every one of them is the servant of the Most High God. From the various players from the House of Rothschild and the House of Rockefeller to Mr. Lloyd Blankfein, the Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs.
I may have mentioned this previously but Blankfein was widely criticized for a half-joking remark in which he described the role of a Goldman Sachs and investment banks in general as doing "God's work."
That remark was in connection with his being asked about the gazillions of taxpayer dollars being used to bail out the big banks from which Goldman Sachs profited greatly.
Blankfein may have been half-joking but biblically, is he telling the truth, yes or no? ...Yes! And given that the ancient king of Babylon had a prophetic dream in which he saw an image of a man with a head of gold, do you think there is any of God’s sign language in the fact that one of the top financial firms in Mystery Babylon is named Gold-man Sachs?
Further, given what we have learned in this series about how Mystery Babylon falls, could we say that God is in the process of sacking the gold man? I think so.
