Jeremiah 27 – Nebuchdnezzar’s Victory & Adolph Hitler

Hitler was definitely psychotic, but I used to think he killed the Jews because Jesus was a Jew, we learn new things all the time.  It is said that you learn more when you listen, rather than talk.  Hitler has a better chance going to heaven then Obama does.

Nebuchadnezzar
They conquered many of their neighbors and built their capital city of Babylon into one of the most beautiful cities in the world.After the death of King Nebuchadnezzar in 562 B.C., the Chaldean Empire quickly fell into decline. By 539 B.C. they were conquered by the Persians.

Jeremiah 27 Nebuchadnezzar’s Victory

1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

27:1-29:32 – further attempts by Jeremiah to counteract the teachings of false prophets, who were claiming that Babylon’s doom was near and that rebellion against Nebuchadnezzar was therefore warranted and desirable.

2 Thus saith the LORD to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,

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;

4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD 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.

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.

Cylinder annals of Nebuchadnezzar that mentions building projects of temples in Babylon, Borsippa, Larsa and Sippar for the gods Marduk, Nabu, Shamash and Ishtar. It also recounts rebuilding city walls.

7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son’s son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.

8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.

9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:

“Diviners…dreamers…sorcerers” – forbidden in is (see Lev 19:26; Deut 18:10-11).  The Hebrew word for “dreamers” is a loanword from Akkadian  (the language of Assyria and Babylon).

10 For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.

11 But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the LORD; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.

12 I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live.

13 Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the LORD hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?

14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

15 For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.

16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD’S house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

“Vessels of the LORD’s house” – some were carried off to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar in 606 B.C., others in 597 B.C., still others would be carried off in 586 B.C.

17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?

18 But if they be prophets, and if the word of the LORD be with them, let them now make intercession to the LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, go not to Babylon.

19 For thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the residue of the vessels that remain in this city,

20 Which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took not, when he carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;

21 Yea, thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem;

22 They shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith the LORD; then will I bring them up, and restore them to this place.

Adolph Hitler

Hitler, like so many evil people in the world today, wanted One World Order.

There are many books written on Adolph Hitler and they don’t all coincide, so everything I say here is my opinion of all that I have read.  Hitler was not an atheist or Satanist, but undoubtedly a horrible person, but not necessarily the person that some people think he was.

Was Hitler one of Satan’s Puppets?  I would have to say, certainly not and more than likely Satan hated Hitler because not only did Hitler not use his power for Satan’s benefit, but he believed in Jesus.  Hitler was no Billy Graham, and he didn’t use his influence for God either, he used it only for himself. 

Yesterday I said to be one of Satan’s Puppets you have to:

1. Defy Jesus and speak against Him publicly and convince people to do likewise or

2. Defy Jesus so horribly that they turn to Satan for help, or 

3. Place power, money or anything before Jesus, or

4. Worship Satan by living his way or by word of mouth of sign. 

Hitler treated people horribly, cruelly, but I doubt if anyone prayed for Satan’s assistance, they probably prayed to God.  Even if they did pray to Satan, Hitler had nothing to do with it.

Hitler was brought up Catholic Christian, and he expressed his Christian views when he was an adult.  Yet, he didn’t grow up to be a true Catholic, sorry to say but he may have been worse than the Catholics, and that’s a tough one to beat.  Hitler grew up to be a psychopath, possibly even schizophrenic, and his view on things were always correct in his eyes. 

Nobody but God could tell him what to do or not to do, and the only reason God could do that is because many of Hitler’s actions were performed due to the way he interpreted the scriptures.  God didn’t actually talk to him.

Hitler read over 130 books about Jesus and His ways, as well as the Bible, but he didn’t always interpret it correctly.  Like in Gen 1:26:

And God said, Let’s make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish over the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Hitler believed that the man God made in His image was the German:

The Germans were the higher race, destined for a glorious evolutionary future. For this reason it was essential that the Jews should be segregated, otherwise mixed marriages would take place. Were this to happen, all nature’s efforts ‘to establish an evolutionary higher stage of being may thus be rendered futile.

Hitler didn’t attend church regularly and later criticized the Church for their rejection of his reformation of a unified German Church, but at no time did he criticize God or Jesus.  He actually worshiped Jesus, in his way.

Hitler had devoted much of his entire political life to deeds aimed at creating a race of people in the pure image of God.  In the image of God as Hitler saw Him, the same way the Catholics do it.

Hitler held many hysterical beliefs which not only include, God and Providence but also Fate, Social Darwinism, and ideological politics. He spoke, unashamedly, about God, fanaticism, idealism, dogma, and the power of propaganda.

Hitler held strong faith in all his convictions. He justified his fight for the German people and against Jews by using Godly and Biblical reasoning. Indeed, one of his most revealing statements makes this quite clear:

Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.

NOTE: The above quote and any others, unless it says otherwise, came from Hitler’s book “from Mein Kampf.”

The Jews

Hitler not only presented his religious beliefs in his speeches, but his own private notes reveal the influence of the Bible, long before he came into power. In one of his notes, he describes the Bible as the monumental history of mankind and used the old testament race laws as the foundation for his views against the Jews, which later turned into the Nazi Nuremberg race laws [Maser, p. 282].

My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice… And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.

Adolf Hitler, in a speech on 12 April 1922 (Norman H. Baynes, ed. The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 of 2, pp. 19-20, Oxford University Press, 1942) Martin Phipps, October 18th, 2004.

There are many suggestions why Hitler hated the Jews, but no one really knows the reason for certain but here are a couple ideas:

The Jews were responsible for bringing negroes into the Rhineland with the ultimate idea of bastardising the white race which they hate and thus lowering its cultural and political level so that the Jew might dominate.

The Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end…spying on the unsuspicious German girl he plans to seduce…..he wants to contaminate her blood and remove her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew hates the white race and wants to lower its cultural level so that the Jews might dominate.

When you tell a lie, tell big lies. This is what the Jews do, working on the principle, which is quite true in itself, that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility….

Hitler was a big fan of Jesus way before he became the leader of Germany.  Jesus’ words against the Jews could easily be why or part of why he hated the Jew.

I know they 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 (Rev 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 (Rev 3:9).

The question is: “Is Hitler in heaven or hell?”

I believe Hitler was saved, not because he didn’t defy Jesus, and not because he killed all the Jews, but because I believe he loved Jesus in his heart and I just can’t imagine anyone that once they love Jesus could not repent at the very end.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings (Jer 17:9-10).

Nobody but God knows where Hitler’s heart was in regard to Jesus.  It’s not just a person’s mind or behavior that sentences them to hell or not:

Jesus said unto them, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind (Matt 22:37).

Most of Hitler’s actions were against God, but as his below quote says,

I am fighting for the work of the Lord.

If he really believed that what he was doing was right than he was on the right track.

Yet, Hitler, like everyone, would have to repent before he died and nobody knows if he did or not.

If he didn’t repent then even though his actions were done for God, they would put him in hell.

Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matt 7:21-23).

But if he repented then he would go to heaven:

If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 Jn 1:9),

Then Peter said unto them, repent and be baptized everyone f you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38).

King David probably killed more people than Hitler did, but what I would see maybe more treacherous than that , is what he did to Uriah and why he did it.   In case you don’t know the story I’ll summarize it quickly:

Uriah was probably King David’s second best military officer and Bathsheba’s husband.  Bathsheba was beautiful and one day while Uriah was out there killing the enemy for the king David had Bathsheba brought to him so he could sleep with her and she got pregnant.

David didn’t like her being pregnant with his child because that would not look good on his resume.  He had to keep her pregnancy secret, but how?

David had Uriah come back from the field and he figured he would sleep with his wife and would think the child was his.  Of course when Uriah came back he brought all of his troops back with him and they had to sleep outside.  Uriah didn’t feel it would be fair for him to go home so he also slept outside with them.

The next day David got Uriah drunk, believing that would certainly work, but Uriah was dedicated to his troops and he again slept outside with them.

David got really worried and since he couldn’t put the pregnancy on Uriah he sent a message to his top military officer, Joab, telling him to set up Uriah so the enemy would kill him and then David married Bathsheba (you can read the story at 2 Sam 11:1-12:15).

That did not please God, and David would have found himself in hell, but he repented and God forgave him (2 Sam 12:13), but David still had to be punished for his actions so God killed  David and Bathsheba’s child.

Look at the world today, the Jews are involved in every world organization, they basically control the world at this time and they are worse than the Catholics, the Muslims, they are even worse than the Bush’s and the Obama’s.

I don’t respect Hitler, nor do I condone what he did, but I do admire his intelligence.  I cannot think of any leader throughout the world that is not evil, they defy God, and roll over for Satan.  No one in the world has been as evil as Hitler and has not defied God.

Supposedly Hitler killed 6,000,000 Jews, but lately that has somewhat been proven to be an incorrect amount, it was much, much less.  But that is neither here nor there, many people hate him for killing so many Jews.  Maybe we should hate him for not killing enough?  I’m talking about the Jews that really aren’t Jews, 98% of the ones that are in Israel today.

I do wonder though if there were others that hated the Jews as much.   Hitler was obviously a reader so I wonder if he read things bad about the Jews that others had said?
