Jeremiah 11 – Judah Has Broken the Covenant & The Illuminati

Yesterday we talked about Jesus’ Second Coming and the signs He told us to look for (Matt 24:3-51) so I believe that the time is coming.  Things on earth are going to get much worse and I find it exciting.  

What I find humorous is all these morons, like presidents Bush and Obama, Crooked Hillary, the Illuminate, the Church of Satan, the Jews, the Catholics, the Muslims and the rest of the idiots like them.  They have no idea that they mean nothing to Satan, they are pawns doing his evil work and they, like him, will be spending eternity in hell. 

Istanbul
Few archaeological sites seem as entwined with conflict, ancient and modern, as the city of Karkemish.
The scene of a battle mentioned in the Bible, it lies smack on the border between Turkey and Syria, where civil war rages today.

Twenty-first century Turkish sentriesoccupy an acropolis dating back more than 5,000 years, and the ruins were recently demined. Visible from crumbling, earthen ramparts, a Syrian rebel flag flies in a town that regime forces fled just months ago.

A Turkish-Italian team is conducting the most extensive excavations there in nearly a century, building on the work of British Museum teams that included T.E. Lawrence, the adventurer known as Lawrence of Arabia. The plan is to open the site along the Euphrates river to tourists in late 2014.

The strategic city, its importance long known to scholars because of references in ancient texts, was under the sway of Hittites and other imperial rulers and independent kings.

However, archaeological investigation there was halted by World War I, and then by hostilities between Turkish nationalists and French colonizers from Syria who built machine gun nests in its ramparts. Part of the frontier was mined in the 1950s, and in later years, creating deadly obstacles to archaeological inquiry at a site symbolic of modern strife and intrigue.

I can just see them all hanging out at the Water Cooler asking, “So what happened?”

This is all good for us, us that walk with Jesus, because that means He’s coming soon.  I am so excited to be with Jesus. 

Anyone with any sense knows that people don’t have any special powers, only the devil and his demons can actually cause evil things to happen.  People are greedy for power and money, like the mob in Chicago, New York, Las Vegas, New Orleans, etc. 

Jeremiah 11
Judah Has Broken the Covenant

1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

11:1-13:27 – because of Judah’s violations of its covenant obligations the people will be exiled to Babylonia.  The section is perhaps to be dated to the reign of Josiah.

11:1-17 – God’s people have broken His covenant with them.

2 Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;

3 And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,

“Cursed be the man” – the phrase – Cursed be he – appears at the beginning of every verse in Deut 27:15-26 (Jeremiah wrote the book of Jeremiah and Moses wrote the book of Deuteronomy).  Blessings resulted from obedience to the covenant; curses resulted from disobedience.

4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:

5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD.

6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them.

7 For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.

8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked everyone in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.

9 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.

11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.

12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.

The Lion Gate at Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite Empire.
The gate, dated to the 13th century BCE, was flanked by two towers. The head of the lion on the left had already been broken away in antiquity. It has been reconstructed in 2011. The lions were put at the entrance of the city to ward off evil.

The Hittites occupied the ancient region of Anatolia (also known as Asia Minor, modern-day Turkey) prior to 1700 BCE, developed a culture apparently from the indigenous Hatti (and possibly the Hurrian) people, and expanded their territories into an empire which rivaled, and threatened, the established nation of Egypt.

They are repeatedly mentioned throughout the Hebrew Tanakh (also known as the Christian Old Testament) as the adversaries of the Israelites and their god.

According to Genesis 10, they were the descendants of Heth, son of Canaan, who was the son of Ham, born of Noah (Genesis 10: 1-6). The name they are known by today, therefore, comes from the Bible and from the Amarna Letters of Egypt which reference a “Kingdom of Kheta” identified today as the `Kingdom of Hatti’ (the designation the land of the Hittites was known by) but their own documents refer to them as Nesili, as do others of the time.  

The Hittite control of the region is divided by modern-day scholars into two periods:
• The Old Kingdom (1700-1500 BCE)
• The New Kingdom, also known as the Hittite Empire (1400-1200 BCE)

There is an interregnum between these two which, to those who accept that version of history, is known as the Middle Kingdom. The discrepancy between those scholars who recognize a Middle Kingdom and those who do not arises from the fact that there was no discontinuity between the Old Kingdom and the New, merely a `dark age’ of less than 100 years about which little is known.  

The Hittite Empire reached its peak between under the reign of King Suppiluliuma I (c.1344-1322 BCE) and his son Mursilli II (c.1321-1295 BCE) after which it declined and, after repeated attacks by the Sea Peoples and the Kaska tribe, fell to the Assyrians.

13 For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.

14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.

15 What hath my beloved to do in mine house, seeing she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest.

16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.

17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.

18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it: then thou shewedst me their doings.

19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.

20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I revealed my cause.21 Therefore thus saith the LORD of the men of Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that thou die not by our hand:

“Men of Antothoth, that seek the life” – “A man’s enemies are the men of his own house” (Mic 7:6; quoted by Jesus in Matt 10:36).

22 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine:

23 And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, even the year of their visitation.

“Remnant” – the conspirators of Anathoth, not its entire population since 128 men of Anathoth returned to their hometown after the exile (see Ezra 2:23).

The Illuminati

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

And he doeth great wonders so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword and did live.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom.  Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is Six hundred three score and six (Rev 13:5, 13-18).

The Illuminati was founded by Adam Weishaupt, a professor of canon law, on May 1, 1776, in Ingolstadt (Upper Bavaria).  They called themselves the Perfectibilists and were the most radical offshoot of The Enlightenment. 

This group was now known as the Bavarian Illuminati. While it was not legally allowed to operate, many influential intellects and politicians counted themselves as members.

Even though there were some known Freemasons in the membership it was not considered to be endorsed by Masonry. The fact that the Illuminati did not require a belief in a supreme being made them particularly popular amongst atheists. 

This, and the fact that most members were humanists, is the reason for the widespread belief that the Bavarian Illuminati wanted to overthrow organized religion.  

In 1785 Duke Karl Theodor of Bavaria banned secret societies, fearing some might be a threat to the government.  It had been believed that the Illuminates had ceased to exist it the late 1700s, but it survived. 

Weishaupt had fled to Germany, where he began expanding his philosophies of a one world government and the Illuminati spread throughout Europe, picking up 2,000 members across Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, and Italy. 

It is believed that organization started the French revolution to further its goals of a society ruled by reason, but most historians say that claim is highly improbable. 

Because of the connection between the Illuminati and Freemasonry, many speculate that Illuminati played a part in the early history of the United States. Many of the founding fathers were Freemasons and it is believed that and the Skull and Bones club is an American branch.

Secrets of the Illuminati Revealed!
Everyone knows that there is a secret society as old as mankind itself that runs the world and pulls the strings behind the scenes.

However, our knowledge of a secret society is only the beginning. Just who are these all-powerful individuals who control our lives without us even knowing it?

The famed Harvard symbologist Dr. Hugh Janus explains that this group is known as the Illuminati, so named because they Illuminate and rule the world in anonymity.

But how do they stay so far under the radar? Apparently, the Illuminati are able to dictate world affairs though the use of a complex series of messages that are hidden all around us.

Dr. Janus uses the ten dollar bill as one of many examples:

Look at one of your ten dollar bills ad you’ll see the symbols Dr. Janus highlights. Above is a point by point breakdown of the hidden code and messages placed in the ten dollar bill by the all powerful group known as the Illuminati.

Mysterious symbols on paper money and even monuments in Washington, DC have been attributed to Masonic influence. 

The Illuminati has become a super-secret society that has penetrated governments, finance, science, business, and the entertainment industry with one goal in mind: world domination. 

For Christians, this seemingly far-fetched idea may hold a grain of truth from the book of 1 John. John mentions the coming of the Antichrist, a charismatic leader who will take control of the world’s governments and rule for 42 months. 

Many who study Bible prophecy say the Illuminati are laying the groundwork for the Antichrist. Some of the wildest speculation links everything from wars to depressions, rap music to TV commercials to the Illuminati’s overall plan to pacify people for the gradual takeover. 

Over the years, the Illuminati have become a popular topic for movies, novels, websites, and even video games. Theorists blame the Illuminati for everything from the Great Depression to world wars. 

Today 

It is believed that the Illuminati is still operating and managing the main actions of the governments of the world.  It is believed that they wish to create a One World Order based on humanist and atheist principles. 

Supporters of this idea say organizations like the United Nations, European Union, the World Health Organization, the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, G-20 Economic Group, the World Court, NATO, Council on Foreign Relations, World Council of Churches and various multinational corporations are pawns of the New World Order, nudging the world closer and closer to this socialist, one-economy, one-religion future.

Whether there is any reality behind all this is a moot point for believers in Jesus Christ, who hold to the truth that God is sovereign. He alone controls planet Earth and His will can never be thwarted by man. 

Even if there is a grand plan to merge all the countries into a one-world government it cannot succeed without God’s permission.  God’s plan of salvation could not be stopped by the high priests or Romans, nor will His plan for humanity be pushed aside by any human conspiracies. 

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ is assured.  Only God the Father knows when it will occur. Christians, in the meantime, can be certain that events will play out exactly as Scripture says: 

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 (2 Thess 2:7-9).

Speaking of Louisiana and evilness, I’m curious about Voodoo.
