The Synagogue of Satan Revealed at Last!!

The Lord Jesus Christ said:

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2:9).

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. (Revelation 3:9).

The symbol for ancient Israel was the Menorah . . . not the hexagram!!

Originally, the hexagram was an Egyptian good luck charm to protect from evil and put curses on enemies. Its origin dates back to the time of the Pharaohs.

The Arabs found the hexagram in Egypt and it became a common Muslim symbol.

Both Muslims and Khazars were/are mercenaries to defeat the enemies of Old Rome.

Today, their leaders use the Pentagon funding of the Khazar state to fill the Muslims with hatred toward the United States and its Triune God given Constitution.

Saint Paul warns us (Triune Christians) NOT to be IGNORANT of Satan’s devices:

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. ( II Corinthians 2:11).

Saladin (Salah al-Din) is a great hero in the Muslim world and almost considered a "saint" in the Latin West because of his lenient treatment of the defeated Crusaders.

The Khazar state is doing an excellent job for the advancement of Islam in Great Britain and the United States.

The defeat of the Crusaders by Saladin, and their ejection from Jerusalem in 1187, made Saladin a celebrated Muslim hero and greatly increased the prestige of Islam in Western Europe. Obviously Saladin is a GREAT HERO to the Khazars because they adopted his 6 pointed star as their national symbol.

Amin Al-Husseini was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and spent most of World War II with Hitler in Berlin.

Obviously, they had long discussions about how to establish a Khazar state in the Mideast, and about how to get the Muslims very, very angry at the heirs of the Reformation, namely Great Britain and the United States!!

Germany was the home of Saint Martin Luther, who was the first to clearly prove from Scripture and history that the POPE and Islam were indeed Antichrist:

Antichrist is the pope and the Turk together; a beast full of life must have a body and soul; the spirit or soul of antichrist is the pope, his flesh or body the Turk. The latter wastes and assails and persecutes God’s church corporally; the former spiritually and corporally too, with hanging, burning, murdering, &c. But, as in the apostle’s time, the church had the victory over the Jews and Romans, so now will she keep the field firm and solid against the hypocrisy and idolatry of the pope, and the tyranny and devastations of the Turk and her other enemies. (Table Talk of Saint Martin Luther, p. 193).

The end of the world came for the Jewish nation in 70 A.D.

The end of the world came for the Jewish nation in 70 A.D., after the Romans besieged the city and leveled the Temple flat with the ground. This was a great fulfillment of the words of Jesus:

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:24).

The end of the times of the Gentiles at the END OF THE WORLD was also predicted by another real Jewish prophet named Daniel:

Thou (Nebuchadnezzar) sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. (Daniel 2:34-35).

This monument in Rome was erected by Emperor Titus to commemorate his victory over the Jews in 70 A.D.

The world famous Arch of Titus in Rome is also a monument that verifies the predictions of Jesus about the complete and final destruction of that nation!!

The predictions are so accurate that skeptics like to say that the gospels were written after 70 A.D.

The Menorah or 7 branched candlestick from the Arch of Titus.

The 6 pointed star is an ancient SUN worship symbol!!

The 6 pointed star comprising 2 pyramids is an ancient sun worship symbol. It is an adaptation of the pagan rosette or wheel symbol. The Samaritans brought that symbol from their homes in Babylon and it is found in many of the Samaritan synagogues.

Here are a few great images from the book Jewish Symbols in the Greco-Roman Period, volume 7.

The reason for the existence of the State of "Israel"

St. Paul the Apostle used GREAT PLAINESS of speech when he predicted momentous events that would happen before the Second Coming of Christ and the end of the world:

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (II Thessalonians 2:1-12).

This is one of the GREATEST and PLAINEST of the great prophecies of the Bible. The inspired Apostle makes it as plain as daylight that even a BLIND MAN could not fail to see that Antichrist would have to be revealed FIRST before the end of time would come.

All the Reformers applied this prophecy to the Papal DYNASTY and all over Europe the Pope was called the Antichrist….Here is a quote and a prayer by the great Saint Martin Luther:

Oh Christ, my Lord, look down upon us and bring upon us the day of judgment, and destroy the brood of Satan at Rome. There sits the Man, of whom the Apostle Paul wrote that he would oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God—the Man of Sin, the son of perdition . . . What is the Temple of God? Is it stones and wood? Did not Paul say, The Temple of God is holy, which Temple ye are? To sit —what is it but to reign, to teach and to judge. Who from the beginning of the church (German, gemeinde: congregation) has dared to call himself master of the whole church (German, gemeinde: congregation) but the Pope alone. None of the saints, none of the heretics ever uttered so horrible a word of pride. (Luther’s Works, vol. 2. p. 281.)

This prophetic teaching (historicist) was playing havoc with the Roman church. Millions were escaping and obeying the Lord’s command to "come out of Babylon"(Rev. 18:4).

The Jesuits and the Counter Reformation

The Jesuit order was founded in1534 by 2 Spaniards: Don Francis Borgia and Ignatius LIEola. One of their main goals was to end the hemorrhage from the church of Rome by getting the Protestant Christians to stop calling the Pope the Antichrist.

Two of the brightest Jesuits were commissioned to write commentaries in Latin opposing the Protestant application of the Antichrist to the Roman church. One of them was Francisco de Ribera and the other was Cardinal Robert Bellarmine. These 2 authors could not deny or ignore the plain statements of Scripture about the Antichrist, but they said he was just one individual and pushed him into the far distant future— just before the end of time…. This scheme called Futurism was highly successful in putting ALL of the Protestants who embraced it into a sound spiritual sleep!!

Francisco de Ribera, S.J. (1537-1591).

Cover of the Futurist book by Francisco de Ribera.

Francisco Ribera was a Jesuit doctor of theology who wrote a 500 page Latin commentary on Revelation (Apocalypse) entitled: In Sacrum Beati Ioannis Apostoli, & Evangelistiae Apocalypsin Commentarij, and he published it about the year 1590…. This commentary was never translated into any other language, and was for the eyes of the hierarchy only!!

In order to remove the Catholic Church from consideration as the Antichrist power, Ribera proposed that the first few chapters of the Apocalypse applied to ancient pagan Rome, and the rest he limited to a yet future period of 3 1/2 literal years, immediately prior to the Second Coming. During that time, the Roman Catholic Church would have fallen away from the Pope into apostasy. Then, he proposed, the antichrist, a single individual, would:

Cardinal Robert Bellarmine, S.J. (1542-1621).

Persecute and blaspheme the saints of God.
Rebuild the temple in Jerusalem.
Abolish the Christian religion.
Deny Jesus Christ.
Be received by the Jews.
Pretend to be God.
Kill the two witnesses of God.
Conquer the world.

All of this would be accomplished in just 3 short years according to Ribera!!

Cover of Cardinal Robert Bellarmine’s Futurist book.

Robert Bellarmine is best known for his opposition to fellow Jesuit Galileo and his HELLiocentric theory. He also wrote a book in Latin entitled: Disputationes de controversiis christianae fidei, or Polemic Lectures Concerning the Disputed Points of the Christian Belief Against the Heretics of This Time. This book follows the basic outline of Francisco de Ribera’s book with the reign of Antichrist limited to a few years way off in the future.

3 Apostles of Futurism—Manuel Lacunza, Edward Irving and John Nelson Darby.

As we said before, the previous 2 commentaries were written in Latin and restricted to the eyes of the hierarchy only….The Jesuits used 3 authors to introduce the masses to the Futurist interpretation of the prophecies:

Manuel Lacunza, S.J. (1731-1801).

Edward Irving, S.J. (1792-1834).

John Nelson Darby, S.J. (1800-1882).

Manuel De Lacunza, a Jesuit from Chile, wrote a manuscript in Spanish titled La Venida del Mesías en Gloria y Magestad (The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty), under the pen name of Juan Josafat Ben-Ezra about 1791. Lacunza wrote under an assumed "Jewish" name to obscure the fact that he was a Catholic, in order to give his book better acceptance in Protestantism, his intended audience. An advocate of Futurism, Lacunza was deliberately attempting to take the pressure off the papacy by proposing that the Antichrist was still far off in the future. His manuscript was published in London, Spain, Mexico and Paris between 1811 and 1826.

Edward Irving, a Jesuit in disguise, translated Lacunza’s work from Spanish into English in a book entitled: The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty with a Preliminary Discourse, published in London in 1827, by L. B. Seeley & Sons, which included Irving’s own lengthy preface.

John Nelson Darby, another Jesuit in disguise, is wrongly called the father of Futurism or Dispensationalism even though that system is usually attributed to him. He was a prolific writer and traveled widely in Europe and the U.S. as an "evangelist" for Futurism. His prophetic scheme was enthusiastically accepted in Great Britain, Canada and the U.S.

Obviously if you invent a prophetic scheme based on "Jews" rebuilding the ruined Temple in Jerusalem, you must have "JEWS" and somehow get them back to Jerusalem…. Inventing "Jews" was no problem for Rome because the Bible mentions fake or counterfeit "Jews" as existing 500 years before Christ .

These fake "Jews" were called Samaritans, and lived north of Jerusalem. The most notorious Samaritan was called Simon the Sorcerer who visited Rome about 50 A.D., and actually founded the Roman church in the Imperial city.

The synagogue of Satan at Dura Europos

Fake "Jews" were found throughout the Roman Empire and one of their most famous "synagogues" was discovered in 1932….The synagogue was located in the most eastern outpost of the Roman Empire called Dura Europos. Dura Europos was discovered in 1920 by a British army captain named M. C. Murphy:

By 1920 the British army maintained only a tenuous hold on the parched Syrian desert along the middle Euphrates River. In March of that year, Captain M. C. Murphy and a company of British soldiers bivouacked in a ruined desert fortress near the village of Salihiyeh, overlooking the Euphrates. From British headquarters at Abou Kemal, a day’s march down river, Murphy sent a letter to his commanding officer, Lt. Colonel G. Leachman.

While at Salihiyah I discovered on the 30th inst. some ancient wall paintings in a wonderful state of preservation. The paintings are in the west corner of the fort and consist of life-size figures of three men, one woman, and three other figures partly obliterated. The colours are mainly reds, yellows and black. There is also some writing which I have tried to reproduce below.
I should be glad if you would forward this to the proper quarter.

Leachman dispatched Murphy’s report to the civil commissioner, Colonel A. T. Wilson, with a covering note.

As a result of our occupation of the old fort at Salihiyah and the digging of trenches, a certain amount of finds have been made. The paintings to which the attached refers are most interesting and should, I think, be seen by an expert. If your American archaeologist is still about, it would well repay him to come and see this. The films enclosed are of the pictures. Could you please have them developed. If anyone comes up, it should be soon for obvious reasons. (Hopkins, The Discovery of Dura Europos, p. 1).

Dura Europos is a little known archeological site on the Euphrates River.

It contained a "synagogue" with all types of images—something strictly forbidden to real Jews.

The Dura Europos "synagogue"—one of the most startling archeological discoveries of the 20th century—is little known outside of academic circles. Here is a report about its discovery by archeologist Erwin R. Goodenough:

Few archeologists have had so amazing an experience as that of five young people when in November 1932 they saw the painted walls of a third-century synagogue emerge from the sands of Dura Europos. Their names should be freshly recorded: Clark Hopkins, Director; M. le Cte. du Mesnil du Buisson, Vice-Director; Miss Margaret Crosby; Frank E. Brown; and Van W. Knox. Others joined them when the magnitude of the discovery showed the need. The original group had gone out carefully coached by Franz Cumont, René Dussaud, and, above all, Michael Rostovtzeff, who, with his usual flair for the best place to dig, had spotted the great mound of sand on the desert side of the city. Here, it turned out, a whole row of buildings had been preserved, including not only the synagogue but also the earliest known Christian meeting room or baptistry, and a magnificent Mithraeum. (Goodenough, Jewish Symbols in the Greco-Roman Period, p. 177).

The Dura Europos "synagogue" is considered to be the world’s oldest preserved Jewish "synagogue." Discovered in 1932 at Dura Europos, it was dated by an Aramaic inscription to 244 A.D. It contains a forecourt and house of assembly with frescoed walls depicting people and animals, and a Torah shrine in the western wall facing Jerusalem. The frescoes are now displayed in the National Museum of Damascus. Because of these frescoes, the "synagogue" was at first mistaken for a Greek temple.

The excavation of this amazing archeological find was a cooperative endeavor between the French Academy of Inscriptions and Belles-Lettres and a team from Yale University in the U.S.

This startling discovery contains dozens of images of Biblical scenes which were strictly prohibited by the 2nd of the 10 Commandments. There is no need to marvel however because this "synagogue" is not Jewish at all but a fake Samaritan imitation— the veritable synagogue of Satan:

Moses leading the Exodus from Egypt.

Torah shrine.

Moses giving water to the Israelites in the wilderness.

Samuel anointing David.

Ezra reads the Law of Moses.

There are literally dozens of Biblical scenes depicted on the walls of the "synagogue". Many of them look like Roman Catholic and Byzantine icons which reveals their true Babylonian origin.

Proselytes by lions—the fake "Jews" or Samaritans came from Babylon!!

The fake "Jews" had their origin about 600 years before Christ, when the king of Assyria deported the real Jews to Assyria and replaced them with 5 pagan tribes:

Until the LORD removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day.
And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.
And so it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they feared not the LORD: therefore the LORD sent lions among them, which slew some of them.
Wherefore they spake to the king of Assyria, saying, The nations which thou hast removed, and placed in the cities of Samaria, know not the manner of the God of the land: therefore he hath sent lions among them, and, behold, they slay them, because they know not the manner of the God of the land.
Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land.
Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Bethel, and taught them how they should fear the LORD.
Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt. (II Kings 17:23-29).

When these pagan transplants were attacked by lions, the king of Assyria sent a Jewish priest to instruct them in the worship of the "god" of the land believing that JEHOVAH was just another tribal deity or local "god."

One of those tribes from Mesopotamia was called Cuthah or Cutha. Mohammad—the founder of Islam— belonged to the Koreish tribe which traced its origin right back to Cutha!!

The real Jews despised the Samaritans for blending paganism and Judaism and referred to them derisively as "proselytes by lions."

Sanballat the Samaritan opposed Nehemiah in repairing the Temple!!

After the end of the Babylonian Captivity, the decree to reestablish the state of Israel and rebuild the Temple was given by king Cyrus in 457 B.C. Many years later, Nehemiah was sent to REPAIR the Temple and he was mightily opposed by Sanballat—Samaritan governor of Samaria:

But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. (Nehemiah 4:7-8).

The Samaritans had synagogues throughout the Roman Empire!!

By the time of Christ, the fake "Jews" were well dispersed throughout the Roman Empire with their own "synagogues." When anyone entered a city of the Empire they had to distinguish between a real Jewish synagogue and a Samaritan "synagogue."

And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.(Acts 13:5).

And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.(Acts 14:1).

The Bible never uses superfluous language unless absolutely necessary because that would be like saying that somebody went to Mecca and went to a Moslem MOSQUE!!

The real Jews were taxed out of existence!!

By 70 A.D. all the smart Jews had converted to Jesus their Messiah…. The rest were possessed by a spirit of folly and madness and decided to take up arms against the Roman government….General Titus conquered Jerusalem and over a million Jews were slain or sold into slavery. This was an exact fulfillment of the words of Jesus:

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:24).

Prior to the destruction of the Temple, all male Jews over 20 had to pay an annual half-shekel tax for the upkeep of the Temple. This amounted to a substantial sum— about $250 dollars a year in today’s money. The Roman government even facilitated the transportation of this money to Jerusalem.

After the Jewish revolt, Emperors Vespasian and Domitian ordered the Jews to pay this money directly to Rome. This left the Jews 2 choices: convert to their Messiah Jesus or become Gentiles and serve the pagan gods of Rome…. Emperor Domition was particularly greedy and resorted to EVERY form of extortion:

Domitian’s agents collected the tax on Jews, with a peculiar lack of mercy; and took proceedings not only against those who kept their Jewish origins a secret in order to avoid the tax, but against those who lived as Jews without professing Judaism. As a boy, I remember once attending a crowded Court where the imperial agent had a ninety-year-old man inspected to establish whether or not he had been circumcised. (Seutonius,The Twelve Caesars, p. 308).

With the downfall of the Jewish nation, the Samaritans had the perfect opportunity to supplant the real Jews— their centuries old rivals.

Samaritans supplanted the real Jews after the destruction of Jerusalem!!

Samaritans were found in every city of the Roman Empire and these Babylonian moneychangers were especially engaged in commerce and banking. The banking profession with its usury was strictly prohibited to all real Jews. Here is a quote from a history of the Samaritans:

There is much significant evidence to the effect that the Samaritans in pursuit of trade were scattered over the western world. Their inscriptions have been found at Athens. Members of the sect were extensively engaged in banking at Constantinople, where " Samaritan" was synonymous with "accountant. (Montgomery, The Samaritans, p. 152).

The philosophy of the banking profession is: LET THE MONEY DO THE WORK. This is diametrically opposed to the 4th Commandment which says:

Six days shalt thou (you) labour, and do all thy work. (Exodus 20:9).

The Samaritans not only supplanted the real Jews, but they also supplanted true Christianity at Rome, by using a tool of Satan named Simon Magus or Simon the Sorcerer!!

Simon the Sorcerer was a Samaritan!!

The most infamous Samaritan was Simon the Sorcerer who was confronted by St. Peter in the Book of Acts. This man later went to Rome, performed all sorts of magic tricks, and a statue was erected in his honor. Eusebius calls him the Father of all Heresies:

And after the ascension of the Lord into heaven the demons put forward certain men who said they were gods, and who were not only allowed by you to go unpersecuted, but were even deemed worthy of honors. One of them was Simon, a Samaritan of the village of Gitto, who in the reign of Claudius Caesar performed in your imperial city some mighty acts of magic by the art of demons operating in him, and was considered a god, and as a god was honored by you with a statue, which was erected in the river Tiber, between the two bridges, and bore this inscription in the Latin tongue, Simoni Deo Sancto, that is, To Simon the Holy God. And nearly all the Samaritans and a few even of other nations confess and worship him as the first God. And there went around with him at that time a certain Helena who had formerly been a prostitute in Tyre of Phoenicia; and her they call the first idea that proceeded from him. Justin relates these things, and Irenaeus also agrees with him in the first book of his work, Against Heresies, where he gives an account o the man and of his profane and impure teaching. It would be superfluous to quote his account here, for it is possible for those who wish to know the origin and the lives and the false doctrines of each of the heresiarchs that have followed him, as well as the customs practiced by them all, to find them treated at length in the above-mentioned work of Irenaeus. We have understood that Simon was the author of all heresy. From his time down to the present those who have followed his heresy have feigned the sober philosophy of the Christians, which is celebrated among all on account of its purity of life. But they nevertheless have embraced again the superstitions of idols, which they seemed to have renounced; and they fall down before pictures and images of Simon himself and of the above-mentioned Helena who was with him; and they venture to worship them with incense and sacrifices and libations. But those matters which they keep more secret than these, in regard to which they say that one upon first hearing them would be astonished, and, to use one of the written phrases in vogue among them, would be confounded, are in truth full of amazing things, and of madness and folly, being of such a sort that it is impossible not only to commit them to writing, but also for modest men even to utter them with the lips on account of their excessive baseness and lewdness. (Christian History of Eusebius, p.115).

All of this history about Simon the Sorcerer founding a counterfeit "Christianity" at Rome is admitted by the Catholic Encyclopedia:

But Justin Martyr and other early writers inform us that he afterwards went to Rome, worked miracles there by the power of demons, and received Divine honours both in Rome and in his own country. Though much extravagant legend afterwards gathered round the name of this Simon, and in particular the story of a supposed contest in Rome between him and St. Peter, when Simon attempting to fly was brought to earth by the Apostle’s word, breaking his leg in his fall, it seems nevertheless probable that there must be some foundation in fact for the account given by Justin and accepted by Eusebius. The historical Simon Magus no doubt founded some sort of religion as a counterfeit of Christianity in which he claimed to play a part analogous to that of Christ. (Catholic Encyclopedia, article "Imposters").

Editor’s Note

Other groups joined the Samaritans or fake "Jews" throughout the centuries; the most notable being the Khazars— a Turkish tribe from Eastern Europe. This would explain the large number of fake "Jews" in Eastern Europe. In order to be accepted as real Jews, the Samaritans had to get rid of the most overt manifestation of paganism which was the use of images or icons.
