Finally someone thinks......
The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.
A new integration bill (covering letter and 15-page action plan), which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.
In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society." The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands. The integration will not be tailored to different groups." The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants.
For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law. The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner, "it is not the government's job to integrate immigrants." The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.
More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013. If necessary, the government will introduce extra measures to allow the removal of residence permits from immigrants who fail their integration course. The measures are being imposed by the new center-right government of Conservatives (VVD) and Christian Democrats (CDA), with parliamentary support from the anti-Islam Freedom Party (PVV), whose leader, Geert Wilders, is currently on trial in Amsterdam for "inciting hatred" against Muslims. As expected, Muslim organizations in Holland have been quick to criticize the proposals. The Moroccan-Dutch organization Samenwerkingsverband van Marokkaanse Nederlanders, which advises the government on integration matters, argues that Muslim immigrants need extra support to find a job.
The umbrella Muslim group Contactorgaan Moslims en Overheid says that although it agrees that immigrants should be better integrated into Dutch society, it is opposed to a ban on burqas. But polls show that a majority of Dutch voters support the government's skepticism about multiculturalism. According to a Maurice de Hond poll published by the center-right newspaper Trouw on June 19, 74 percent of Dutch voters say immigrants should conform to Dutch values. Moreover, 83 percent of those polled support a ban on burqas in public spaces.
The proper integration of the more than one million Muslims now living in Holland has been a major political issue ever since 2002, when Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn was assassinated for his views on Muslim immigration, and since 2004, when Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was stabbed to death for producing a movie that criticized Islam. Muslim immigration to the Netherlands can be traced back to the 1960s and 1970s, when a blue collar labor shortage prompted the Dutch government to conclude recruitment agreements with countries like Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Muslims also arrived in the Netherlands as asylum seekers and refugees, mainly from Afghanistan, Bosnia, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia. There are now an estimated 1.2 million Muslims in the Netherlands, which is equivalent to about 6 percent of the country's overall population. Moroccans and Turks comprise nearly two-thirds of all Muslims in the Netherlands. Most Muslims live in the four major cities of the country: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht.
As their numbers grow, Muslim immigrants have become increasingly more assertive in carving out a role for Islam within Dutch society. For example, a documentary aired by the television program Netwerk in June 2009 reported that Dutch law was being systematically undermined by the growth of Sharia justice in the Netherlands. In December 2004, the Dutch Ministry of the Interior published a 60-page report titled From Dawa to Jihad. Prepared by the Dutch intelligence agency AIVD, the report says that the Netherlands is home to up to 50,000 radical Muslims whose key ideological aim is to target the Western way of life and to confront Western political, economic, and cultural domination. The report concludes that Dutch society is poorly equipped to resist the threat of radical Islam because of "a culture of permissiveness" that has become synonymous with "closing one's eyes" to multiple transgressions of the law.
As for Interior Minister Donner, he has undergone a late-in-life conversion on the issue of Muslim immigration. In September 2006, while serving as justice minister, Donner provoked an outcry after saying that he welcomed the introduction of Islamic Sharia law in the Netherlands if the majority wants it. He also said Holland should give Muslims more freedoms to behave according to their traditions. After applauding Queen Beatrix for respecting Islam by not insisting that a Muslim leader shake hands with her during a visit to the Mobarak Mosque in The Hague, Donner said: "A tone that I do not like has crept into the political debate on integration.
A tone of: 'Thou shalt assimilate. Thou shalt adopt our values in public. Be reasonable, do it our way.' That is not my approach." Fast forward to 2011 and Donner now says his government "will distance itself from the relativism contained in the model of a multicultural society." Although society changes, he says, it must not be "interchangeable with any other form of society." -

During his State of the Union speech on Tuesday evening, Barack Obama is going to promise to make life better for middle class families.
Of course he has also promised to do this during all of his other State of the Union addresses, but apparently he still believes that there are people out there that are buying what he is selling. Each January, he gets up there and tells us how the economy is “turning around” and to believe that much brighter days are right around the corner. And yet things just continue to get even worse for the middle class. The numbers that you are about to see will not be included in Obama’s State of the Union speech.
They don’t fit the “narrative” that Obama is trying to sell to the American people. But all of these statistics are accurate. They paint a picture of a middle class that is dying. Yes, the decline of the U.S. middle class is a phenomenon that has been playing out for decades. But without a doubt, our troubles have accelerated during the Obama years.
When it comes to economics, he is completely and utterly clueless, and the policies that he has implemented are eating away at the foundations of our economy like a cancer. The following are 27 facts that show how the middle class has fared under 6 years of Barack Obama…
#1 American families in the middle 20 percent of the income scale now earn less money than they did on the day when Barack Obama first entered the White House.
#2 American families in the middle 20 percent of the income scale have a lower net worth than they did on the day when Barack Obama first entered the White House.
#3 According to a Washington Post article published just a few days ago, more than 50 percent of the children in U.S. public schools now come from low income homes. This is the first time that this has happened in at least 50 years.
#4 According to a Census Bureau report that was recently released, 65 percent of all children in the United States are living in a home that receives some form of aid from the federal government.
#5 In 2008, the total number of business closures exceeded the total number of businesses being created for the first time ever, and that has continued to happen every single year since then.
#6 In 2008, 53 percent of all Americans considered themselves to be “middle class”. But by 2014, only 44 percent of all Americans still considered themselves to be “middle class”.
#7 In 2008, 25 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 29-year-old age bracket considered themselves to be “lower class”. But in 2014, an astounding 49 percent of all Americans in that age range considered themselves to be “lower class”.
#8 Traditionally, owning a home has been one of the key indicators that you belong to the middle class. So what does the fact that the rate of homeownership in America has been falling for seven years in a row say about the Obama years?
#9 According to a survey that was conducted last year, 52 percent of all Americans cannot even afford the house that they are living in right now.
#10 After accounting for inflation, median household income in the United States is 8 percent lower than it was when the last recession started in 2007.
#11 According to one recent survey, 62 percent of all Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck.
#12 At this point, one out of every three adults in the United States has an unpaid debt that is “in collections“.
#13 When Barack Obama first set foot in the Oval Office, 60.6 percent of all working age Americans had a job. Today, that number is sitting at only 59.2 percent…
#14 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the average duration of unemployment in the United States has risen from 19.8 weeks to 32.8 weeks.
#15 It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.
#16 At the end of Barack Obama’s first year in office, our yearly trade deficit with China was 226 billion dollars. Last year, it was more than 314 billion dollars.
#17 When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent. Today, it is over 101 percent.
#18 The U.S. national debt is on pace to approximately double during the eight years of the Obama administration. In other words, under Barack Obama the U.S. government will accumulate about as much debt as it did under all of the other presidents in U.S. history combined.
#19 According to the New York Times, the “typical American household” is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a decade ago.
#20 The poverty rate in the United States has been at 15 percent or above for 3 consecutive years. This is the first time that has happened since 1965.
#21 From 2009 through 2013, the U.S. government spent a whopping 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs.
#22 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to 46 million.
#23 Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had full-time jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceedsthe number of women that have full-time jobs.
#24 One recent survey discovered that about 22 percent of all Americans have had to turn to a church food panty for assistance.
#25 An astounding 45 percent of all African-American children in the United States live in areas of “concentrated poverty”.
#26 40.9 percent of all children in the United States that are living with only one parent are living in poverty.
#27 According to a report that was released late last year by the National Center on Family Homelessness, the number of homeless children in the United States has reached a new all-time record high of 2.5 million.
Unfortunately, this is just the beginning.
The incredibly foolish decisions that have been made by Obama, Congress and the Federal Reserve have brought us right to the precipice of another major financial crisis and another crippling economic downturn.
So as bad as the numbers that I just shared with you above are, the truth is that they are nothing compared to what is coming.
We are heading into the greatest economic crisis that any of us have ever seen, and it is going to shock the world.
I hope that you are getting ready.

Three weeks ago, when looking at the latest NY Fed data of foreign gold held at the largest central bank gold vault in the world, we showed that in the month of November not only was a near record amount of gold withdrawn from the NY Fed, which at 42 tons was the single biggest monthly outflow at the NY Fed in over a decade...
... but that though the end of November, all of the Netherlands' 122 tons of gold withdrawals had been fully accounted for. This brought up an interesting question:
"... net of the Netherlands withdrawals, there is some 44 tons of extra gold that has been also quietly redeemed (by another entity). The question is who: is it now the turn of Austria to reveal in a few weeks that it too, secretly, withdrew some 40+ tons of gold from "safe keeping" in the US? Or was it Belgium? Or did the Dutch simply decide to haul back some more. Or did Germany finally get over its "logistical complications" which prevented it from transporting more than just a laughable 5 tons in 2013? And most importantly, did Germany finally grow a pair and decidenot to let "diplomatic difficulties" stand between it and its gold?
We now know the answer, and it was, indeed, the latter with confirmation coming from the Bundesbank itself. As the German Central Bank announced earlier today, after withdrawing an embarrassing 5 tonnes of gold from New York in 2013, its rate of repatriation soared, and in what appears to have been just the past two months, has transferred a whopping 85 tonnes of gold from 80 feet below street level at Liberty 33 back to Frankfurt!
The Bundesbank successfully continued and further stepped up its transfers of gold last year. In 2014, 120 tonnes of gold were transferred to Frankfurt am Main from storage locations abroad: 35 tonnes from Paris and 85 tonnes from New York. "Implementation of our new gold storage plan is proceeding smoothly. Operations are running very much according to schedule," said Carl-Ludwig Thiele, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank.The Bundesbank took advantage of the transfer from New York to have roughly 50 tonnes of gold melted down and recast according to the London Good Delivery standard, today's internationally recognised standard. "We also called on the expertise of the Bank for International Settlements for the spot checks that had to be carried out. As expected, there were no irregularities," said Mr Thiele.According to its new gold storage plan, unveiled in January 2013, the Bundesbank will be storing half of Germany’s gold reserves in its own vaults from 2020 onwards. This necessitates a phased transfer to Frankfurt am Main of 300 tonnes of gold from New York and all 374 tonnes of gold from Paris.Since the transfers began in 2013, the Bank has relocated a total of 157 tonnes of gold to Frankfurt am Main - 67 tonnes from Paris and 90 tonnes from New York. This is equivalent to roughly 23% of the total quantity to be transferred. The following table gives an overview of the gold that has been transferred to date.As at 31 December 2014, the Bundesbank's gold reserves were stored at the following locations.
And the punchline:
The Bundesbank assures the identity and authenticity of German gold reserves throughout the transfer process - from when they are removed from warehouses abroad until they are stored in Frankfurt am Main. As soon as the gold was removed from the warehouse locations abroad,Bundesbank employees cross-checked the lists of bars belonging to the Bundesbank against the information on the bars removed. Finally, once they arrived in Frankfurt am Main, all the transferred gold bars were thoroughly and exhaustively inspected and verified by the Bundesbank. When all the inspections had been concluded, no irregularities came to light with regard to the authenticity, fineness and weight of the bars.
A curious amount of precautions and safeguards when transporting the "safe" and "untainted" gold held at the NY Fed to Frankfurt. Almost as if the Bundesbank, gasp, did not trust the quality and content of the NY Fed-held gold, nor its well-meaning intentions.
Ironically, it was exactly one year ago that we wrote "Germany Has Recovered A Paltry 5 Tons Of Gold From The NY Fed After One Year" in which we wrote:
The official explanation was as follows: "The Bundesbank explained [the low amount of US gold] by saying that the transports from Paris are simpler and therefore were able to start quickly." Additionally, the Bundesbank had the "support" of the BIS "which has organized more gold shifts already for other central banks and has appropriate experience - only after months of preparation and safety could transports start with truck and plane." That would be the same BIS that in 2011 lent out a record 632 tons of gold...Welt goes on to "debunk" various "conspiracy websites" that the reason why the gold is being melted is not to cover up some shortage (and to scrap serial numbers), but that the gold is exactly the same gold as before. Finally, to silences all skeptics, the Bundesbank says that "there is no reason for complaint - the weight and purity of the gold bars were consistent with the books match." In conclusion, Welt reports that in 2014 "larger transport volumes" can be expected from New York: between 30 and 50 tons.
Welt was off by just 50% with the full 2014 repatriated amount hitting 85 tons in what appears to have been a year-end scramble following the Netherlands repatriation shocker. And, as it turns out, all it took for the Bundesbank to send its repatriation amounts surging is for the Dutch to show it how it is done: i.e., by plane because crossing the Atlantic with a Brinks' truck full of gold certainly presents some "logisitcal challenges."
Sarcasm aside, it is quite clear that "logistical difficulties" is merely a politically correct strawman. Recall the real reason for the paltry repatriation by Buba in 2013, as explained by Deutsche Bank two months ago:
... the gold community paid great attention to the decision of the German Bundesbank to “bring German gold home”. At the beginning of 2013, the Bundesbank announced it would repatriate 300 tonnes of gold stored in the US by 2020. It is well behind schedule, citing logistical difficulties. Yet diplomatic difficulties are more likely to be the chief cause of the delay, especially seeing as the Bundesbank has proven its capacity to organise large-scale gold transports. In the early 2000s, the Bundesbank incrementally repatriated 930 tonnes of German gold held by the Bank of England.
Which leads us to the only relevant question: now that the "diplomatic difficulties" have been overcome and the Bundesbank is back on track to repatriating precisely the right amount of gold from the NY Fed to indicate that it has far less faith in the US central bank than it did when it was barely conducting any transfers in 2013, just how worse as the diplomatic difficulties now? We expect to get at least a partial answer on Thursday when Mario Draghi finally announces his long-overdue €500 billion QE program, with Bundesbank's Jens Weidmann, sitting quietly in a corner, and ignored by the ex-Goldman head of the ECB, contemplated just how much more, if not all, gold (there is still some 517 tonnes of gold left to be repatriated to Germany from NY and Paris) he should withdraw now in preparation for the "next steps"?
One thing is certain: Germany sends its kindest gratitude to Ukraine, whose gold, now long gone, is most likely to be found in a far safer, and remelted, state somewhere in the bowels under Wilhelm-Epstein-Straße, number 14 in Frankfurt am Main.

Nimrod developed systems to replace man’s walk with God in every aspect of life with absolute dependence upon those systems of control (system vs. relationship). I believe there are three basic facets of Babylon or, as many prophecy teachers have designated, the “Three Babylons.”
In the last days, God will judge these three interlocking Babylons (or Babylonian systems). They are 1) Financial Babylon; 2)Political Babylon; and 3) Religious Babylon
Let’s define each of these for the sake of clarity.
Financial Babylon: Financial Babylon controls not only the finances of the world, but any resource that can translate into wealth: precious metals, gems, energy (oil, electric, nuclear power, etc.), water, food, medicine, illegal drugs, media, education, and even people (remember, in Babylon, people are considered a resource).
This financial control is established through an international, centralized banking system operated solely by the Elite. Nations no longer manage their currencies; they are handled through this central banking system. The Federal Reserve is no more controlled by the government than is Federal Express. Doc Marquis points out in his video series, The Secrets of the Illuminati, that all the nations involved in the War on Terror or those that are part of the Arab Spring (i.e., Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, etc.) refused to become a part of the international, centralized banking system of the Rothschild dynasty. The turmoil within those nations is designed to change the governmental regimes to ones that will be more compliant to the control of their finances by Financial Babylon (with the side benefit of inflating the price of oil, another control mechanism). Usually, the first part of nation building that the US assists with, after the change in regimes, is the establishment of a centralized banking system.
I also believe that Financial Babylon is the most powerful of the three. Finances build political parties, fuel elections, sway politicians’ votes, control who gains media coverage, and even control which ministries move into prominence and whose messages are suppressed (although the Internet is currently giving voice to many faithful ministries today). This influence is so pervasive in the United States that, in a study published by Princeton University, researchers declared that our nation was no longer a democracy: it is now an oligarchy.[i] Wikipedia defines an oligarchy as follows:
Oligarchy (from Greek ὀλιγαρχία (oligarkhía); from ὀλίγος (olígos), meaning “few”, and ἄρχω (arkho), meaning “to rule or to command”) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next, but inheritance is not a necessary condition for the application of this term.[ii]
How has America moved from a democracy to an oligarchy? The answer is: Through the riches and control of Financial Babylon. Without the proper financial backing, few candidates have any chance of winning elections.
This control of finances has answered so many questions for me, even beyond politics.
- Why are there no real differences in our political choices when it comes time to vote? Not only is there little difference anymore in the philosophical beliefs of the candidates, but the same agendas continue to move forward regardless of which party is in control. The only variation is the speed in which they are accomplished.
Why has education been on a downward spiral over the past hundred or so years in the US? Secularization has transformed education from training students how to obtain knowledge and use critical thinking to indoctrinating them to serve in the New Babylon, as dumbed-down bricks in Nimrod’s wall. This was achieved through control of secondary schools by federal mandates and funding. Control of postsecondary schools was accomplished through secular accreditation and the Title IV Guaranteed Student Loan Program.[iii]
- Why is there always some type of shortage of resources worldwide? The resources of our planet (to include the food supply) should easily accommodate nearly fourteen billion people. (Scarcity inflates prices, causes civil unrest, and can control which nations thrive and which ones decline.)
- Why do many good ministries and ministers often struggle, while other ministries with questionable doctrines and practices explode on the scene and become the new standard? Financial Babylon initially funds them, while Religious Babylon trains them to sway the masses through media and Christianized mysticism (more on this later in our study).
The list can go on and on. When you open your eyes to the reality of the influence of the threefold cord of Babylon, you see it in every aspect of our lives, from politics to the supermarket to your local church!
Babylon always uses riches to entrap and to control. God’s blessings are outside the control and influence of Babylon. The only way to gain God’s blessings is to walk out of Babylon (to depart) and to start walking with Him in all areas of your life so He can make you whole.
Political Babylon: The Founding Fathers in American politics viewed government as a necessary vice. When government works, it is small and provides some basic safeguards. This is true in a nation all the way down to the local church. When Babylon infects any type of governmental structure, it begins to grow like a cancer that swallows up everything around it. One of the telltale signs of any political system infected by Babylon is revealed in the following statement about Nimrod:
Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it was through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power.[iv]
When government insists that true happiness (source of supply and well-being) can only come through its hands (i.e., socialism or communism) and it begins to oppress anyone or anything that does not align with its agenda, then you are dealing with the influence of Political Babylon.
There are only two real positions in life: dependence upon the Babylonian system or dependence upon the kingdom of God. Over the past few decades, it has appeared that many ministries and believers have prospered by standing with one foot in both kingdoms—straddling the fence. In the days ahead, the servants of Nimrod will spring their trap and all of these compromising ministries will be confronted by the proverbial fence post.
In the history of America over the past hundred years or so, we have seen the ebbs and flows of Political Babylon.
As the influence of the Church increased, the power of Political Babylon decreased. When the salt nature of the Church decreased within society, the influence of Political Babylon increased. Today, Financial and Religious Babylon have teamed up against the Church at large. They have created a pseudo-spiritual system that makes us think we are walking with God and making huge impacts upon society. All the while (or in reality), the influence of Political Babylon grows within our culture and true spiritual holiness is lost within the Church.
Religious Babylon: To understand Religious Babylon, we need to understand several things. At the time of Shem and Nimrod, there were only two religions on the planet. The religion of Shem was to walk with the God of Creation, submit completely to Him, and walk in His ways (i.e., follow His commandments). The Institutes (religion) of Nimrod were exactly the opposite. Nimrod opposed all of the commandments of God (lawlessness) and set up a demonically inspired program of walking within a system rather than walking with God. When the languages were confused at the Tower of Babel, the people scattered and the names changed, but the concepts of the Institutes of Nimrod stayed the same.
When Abraham was called out of Babylon (contained within his bloodline), a departure from the Institutes of Nimrod occurred. Abraham and his descendants walked with God and learned His ways (commandments). Eventually, the children of Israel found themselves in bondage as slaves in Egypt—another version of Babylon.
When Moses brought the Hebrews out of Egypt by God’s grace and they became a nation, Israel stood within history as the only religion that was the antithesis to the religion of Nimrod. All other religions on the planet were some variation of what started in Babylon. In fact, if you go to the Intertestamental Period during which Antiochus IV Epiphanes entered Jerusalem, erected a statue of Apollo, sacrificed a hog on the altar of God, and established the Institutes of Nimrod over Judea, these practices would have worked perfectly in any other nation. All other nations were based on the same concepts; they would just change the names of their gods. Within Judea, such things were an abomination. Antiochus found himself hunting down and killing all of the faithful who refused to bow to his demands. (I am sure he was not prepared for such resistance.) Eventually, the Maccabees rose up and drove him out of Judea three years to the day from when he started his war on the ways of God.
After the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, Christianity began as a new branch of Judaism: Christ’s followers were known as the Nazarenes. Jews and Christians stood together in unity against the Institutes of Nimrod. Rome began its persecution of the Jews in both the first revolt in AD 70 that resulted in the destruction of the Temple and the second revolt in AD 132. That resulted in the complete destruction of Jerusalem; all Jews were forbidden to even travel through the area. With this persecution, Gentile believers began separating themselves from their Jewish counterparts. There was also a great deal of animosity against both Jewish and Gentile believers, because they would not fight in the second revolt. At the beginning of the second revolt, Rabbi Akiva declared Simon bar Kakhba the Messiah. Because of this action, believers in Jesus felt that if they fought, they would be endorsing Simon as Messiah and would be denying Jesus.[v]
This drift away from our Hebraic heritage continued over the next several centuries. Church leaders such as Origin declared that God gave Greek philosophy to lead Gentiles to Jesus, while the Torah was solely for the purpose of leading Jews to Jesus. (Note: in Origin’s history with the church, he was declared a heretic many times.) This separation of Gentile believers from their Hebraic heritage was completed under the leadership of Constantine.
It was, in the first place, declared improper to follow the custom of the Jews in the celebration of this holy festival, because, their hands having been stained with crime, the minds of these wretched men are necessarily blinded….Let us, then, have nothing in common with the Jews, who are our adversaries…. Let us…studiously avoiding all contact with that evil way.…For how can they entertain right views on any point who, after having compassed the death of the Lord, being out of their minds, are guided not by sound reason, but by an unrestrained passion, wherever their innate madness carries them….lest your pure minds should appear to share in the customs of a people so utterly depraved….Therefore, this irregularity must be corrected, in order that we may no more have any thing in common with those parricides and the murderers of our Lord…. no single point in common with the perjury of the Jews.[vi]
Constantine’s goal was to create a catholic (universal) religion based upon the power of Rome and its stream of the mystery religion. Following the occult “onion” principle, the outer wrap was a veneer of Christianity, but within, it was completely the Institutes of Nimrod. Therefore, the Feasts of the Lord(which are all about Messiah) and the commandments of God had to be replaced with new universally understood pagan holidays and new catholic commandments.
We now stand in a period of human history in which the religions that are various versions of the Institutes of Nimrod are beginning to realign. Exactly how that will play out is yet to be seen—although, I must add, they will surely be seen very shortly. The only ones who resemble the faith of Shem, Abraham, Moses, and Paul are the Remnant—those who have purged themselves of the influence of the Great Whore and are walking in the power of covenant with Almighty God.
This is why we must be faithful Bereans and carefully examine our ways. We must cleanse ourselves from the leaven of Babylon and adhere to a pure faith that is based on the completed work of Jesus and the Word of God. To quote the Reformers of old, our cry must be sola Scriptura (“only Scripture”)!
I believe this prophetic cry is being renewed by the Holy Spirit again in our generation. With the level of spiritual warfare in the last days, we cannot fight against something we are still plugged into and depend upon. We must separate the clean from the unclean in our lives, from sinful acts and attitudes to polluted ways of living. The apostle Paul reminds us about this dynamic relationship with the trice Holy God of Creation:
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14–18)
We need the Holy Spirit to dwell in us fully; we need Almighty God to walk among us in the days ahead. In fact, we’re talking survival here. Survival supplies and dehydrated food will only take you so far. It is the manifested presence and leadership of God in your life that will tip the balance in your favor! Please understand that Paul was writing to believers in these verses, and he wasn’t merely referring to marriage.
This Jewish rabbi named Paul, who was from the School of Hillel and trained by the famous rabbi, Gamaliel, was discussing how important it was for these formerly pagan Gentile believers to completely leave the Institutes of Nimrod behind and to walk completely with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Notice the affirmation of Abraham’s call in verse 17: “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean.” Notice that I did not include “thing” in this quote. In the KJV, the word “thing” is in italics. This means that it did not occur in the original Greek text. (In 1611, these dedicated and faithful translators were not well versed in their Hebraic heritage.) When the apostle Paul used the term “unclean,” he was using a Torah term that included everything the commandments of God declared as “unclean”—from items to practices. He expected his readers to open up their Bibles (which at that time only included Genesis through Malachi), study what God said was unclean, and separate it from their lives. In theological terms, we would call that “sanctification” (both a lost truth and a lost art these days within the body of Christ).
Over the years, I have found that when I write out explicitly all of the Institutes of Nimrod and its concepts for believers, the first thing they do is get upset…with me. It is not my fault that so much of what we do and accept, as common practices, did not originate in the Word of God; but the truth is that the carnal nature loves Babylon and most everything associated with it. Satan has done a great job of Christianizing his concepts over the centuries, turning them into big warm fuzzies and wrapping them in a big red bow. It takes two things for you to overcome: (1) sensitivity to the convicting power of the Holy Spirit, and (2) honest research. Some of my students, who were originally so upset with me for pointing these things out, eventually became the greatest advocates for biblical holiness—once they did their own research. (Although a good number spent many days arguing with themselves over their conclusions.)
Never accept anything at face value. The enemy of our soul has become adept at deceiving righteous men into accepting unrighteous practices. Research extensively, dig deep, and do not go for the easiest answer, what is popular, or the path of least resistance. Be like Jacob, who dared to wrestle with God over his pending confrontation with Esau. It was during the action of wrestling that Jacob’s walk changed and he became Israel. There is a transformational wrestling match waiting for you; it will free you from the influence of Babylon and prepare you to become a world overcomer as we witness firsthand the unfolding of end-time prophecy.
