THE CUTTING EDGE
MESSIAH TO COME FROM THE THRONE OF KING DAVID
"Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever." [Isaiah 9:7]
"The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne." [Psalms 132:11]
"And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness." [Isaiah 16:5]
Israel's promised Messiah - Redeemer will come from the bloodline and lineage of King David! The above verses are just a few of the many which promise that Messiah will come from David; for this reason, we have Matthew 1, a chapter that demonstrates Jesus' lineage, unbroken all the way back to King David. Because this lineage is so important, the first chapter of the first Gospel is devoted to this subject. As the prophetically learned Jew knew right well, Messiah would come from David. Listen to the first verse of Matthew 1 explain:
"The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." [Matt 1:1]
Today's religious Jew also understands that the Messiah for whom they are still awaiting must come from the Throne of David. Therefore, before they will accept any person's claim to be Antichrist, they are going to demand a genealogy which "proves" that the person claiming to be the Jewish Messiah is truly from the House of David. This requirement is one tall order, folks! When you also tie in this requirement with the prophecy that Antichrist must come from the Revived Roman Empire [Daniel 9:27], you realize the staggering obstacle facing anyone who would even think of staging such an appearance on the world scene.
Question: How does a Gentile "prove" his Jewish lineage back to King David?
Answer: Through the invention of the lie called the Merovingian Bloodline Genealogy!
Before we get started on our study, remember one fact: if Antichrist can somehow plug his genealogy back to Jesus Christ, he is "home free" to King David!
The lie called the "Merovingian Bloodline Genealogy" accomplishes this feat. This is the lie that will enable Antichrist to "plug" his genealogy into that of Jesus Christ and thus all the way to King David. Listen now to a succinct definition of this bloodline.
"The Merovingian Bloodline traces back to Jesus and His descendants, i.e., Mary Magdalene and the child she bore. This bloodline was threatened by the Catholic Church so the truth had to be hidden. The Priory of Sion was assigned to protect the information about this bloodline." [ABC Documentary, "Jesus, Mary, and da Vinci", aired 11/03/03]
Let us now begin our study.
GNOSTICISM - SATANIC DOCTRINE REBORN
In Part 1 of this series, we show the details of this ABC documentary, "Jesus, Mary, and da Vinci"; a very important portion of their argument that Jesus never died, but married Mary Magdalene -- by whom they had a child -- required them to go outside Scripture. The extra-biblical argument they put forward came from the "Gnostic Gospels". These "Gospels" purportedly showed that Jesus was repeatedly very affectionate to Mary Magdalene, kissing her on some body part to the point the disciples got angry.
The really deceptive part of this ABC presentation was that they presented these Gnostic Gospels as if they carried equal authoritative weight to the four Gospels in the Holy Bible! They quoted from them just as a genuine Christian would quote from the Bible and they presented "Bible scholars", who examined the meaning of certain words in the original Greek language, just as Protestant Bible scholars, teachers and preachers have done for centuries. The end result is that many people who do not know their Bibles and who are not discerning will probably be deceived into thinking these Gnostic Gospels are as genuine as the real Bible.
Therefore, let us begin our study be examining the Gnostics so you may appreciate the terribly Satanic, blasphemous material presented to all the peoples of the world on November 3, 2003, by ABC TV.
Gnosticism According To Satanic Doctrine
"The name Gnostic means wisdom or knowledge, and is derived from the Greek, Gnosis. The members of the order claimed to be familiar with the secret doctrines of early Christianity. They interpreted the Christian Mysteries according to pagan symbolism. Their secret information and philosophic tenets they concealed from the profane and taught to a small group of only especially initiated persons." ["The Secret Teaching of All The Ages", by Manly P. Hall, 33° Freemason, The Philosophical Research Society, 1988, page XXV; Emphasis was in original]
Jesus taught all the principles of the Kingdom of God quite openly. Listen to Him explain:
"Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing." [John 18:20]
In other places, the Bible declared that His Kingdom was "freely given".
However, the Kingdom of Satan is NOT given freely; rather, the secret doctrines comprising the devil's kingdom are always hidden from the public, given only to the select few. For this reason, these nefarious doctrines have always appealed to the inherent snobbish nature of a prideful man. Since most natural leaders are very proud of themselves, this appeal to their pride -- i.e., that they will know things hidden from the "profane", the average person -- has been successful in attracting unredeemed men to secret societies in every era of time for the past 4,000 years.
"He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" [Romans 8:32]
"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God." [1 Cor 2:12]
Here, Masonic author, Manly P. Hall, has just told us that Gnosticism "concealed from the profane and taught to a small group of only especially initiated persons." This fact makes them an occult secret society, before you ever get to their blasphemous doctrines!
Notice, also, that the Gnostics claimed to know "secret doctrines" of Christianity, i.e., a "Mysteries Religion". Always, Satan entices the unsaved with promises that Christianity contains "secret doctrines", as this is his way of getting around the bold truth of the Bible! Just as Satan whispered in the ear of Eve, "Did God really say?", so he is whispering in the ears of members of his secret societies, "God did not really say"! Or, saying to the elect few, "These are doctrines hidden from the masses, that God knew He could not reveal to the common people".
Thus, occultism has "Secret Doctrines", and "Secret Gospels", and the "Secret Years of Jesus Christ", all given in order to circumvent the true teaching of the Holy Bible.
Finally, notice that the Gnostics interpreted true Scripture "according to pagan symbolism". In other words, they re-interpreted key Christian doctrine according to Satanic pagan beliefs and doctrines, a dastardly practice called "syncretism". Their symbolism thus reflected these pagan beliefs. God expressly forbids mixing His Truth with Satan's untruth! Such a practice is called "Leaven", i.e., false doctrine. Listen to what the Apostle Paul said about leaven.
"A little leaven (a slight inclination to error, or a few false teachers) leavens the whole lump - it perverts the whole conception of faith (and) misleads the whole church." [Galatians 5:9; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
The Apostle Paul fought hard against Gnostic heresy in his Epistles, because he realized that their doctrine will "pervert the whole conception of faith" and will most definitely "mislead the whole church". You will see a good example of this reality in our discussion here. Without the Gnostic doctrine called the Merovingian Bloodline, Antichrist cannot arise, thus demonstrating how important Gnosticism was, and still is, to Satan.
Now, let us go back to 33° Mason, Manly P. Hall, for more information about Gnosticism:
"Simon Magus, the magician of New Testament fame, is often supposed to have been the founder of Gnosticism ... [Ibid.]
Now, this is hot news, indeed! Simon Magus was the founder of Gnosticism! We meet Simon Magus as he is thrust into conflict with the apostles Peter and John. In fact, Simon was a Sorcerer, a practicing Satanist, and when he saw the apostles performing miracles he knew he could not perform, he assumed they were performing these miracles by exercising a higher degree of occultism than he knew; this was the same error the Pharisees made when they viewed Jesus performing his miracles, as they assumed he was drawing His power directly from Beelzebub, one of the chief princes of Lucifer [Mark 3:22; Luke 11:15-19; Matthew 12:24-27]. Jesus condemned this idea so strongly He created a new sin, the Unpardonable Sin! But, the very fact that the Pharisees would come to this conclusion demonstrates the reality that they were members of a secret society [Hear "Secret Societies Killed Jesus Christ", Audio Tape set].
After Simon the Sorcerer "believed and was baptised" (Acts 8:9-13), he offered to buy the occult knowledge by which the Apostles were performing their miracles, to which Peter boldly replied:
"Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God." [Acts 8:20-21]
Therefore, even though Simon had "believed" and was baptised, his heart was still not right with God. Many Bible scholars believe Simon's repentance and profession of belief was never genuine, but only undertaken so he could get closer to the apostles to learn the source of their secret power. Tradition states that Simon went back to his old ways after failing to secure the source of the Apostle's power. Listen:
"However favourably this or any other (scholar) may speak of Simon, he is generally supposed to have 'grown worse and worse, opposing the apostles and the Christian doctrine, and deceiving many cities and provinces by magical operations'." Adam Clarke's Commentary
This statement must be correct, for here we see the most authoritative Masonic author of the 20th Century, Manly P. Hall, stating that Simon Magus - Sorcerer - was the founder of the secret society known as Gnosticism.
Now, let us examine some of the tenets of Gnosticism so you can appreciate the terrible manner in which it seeks to damage the precious simple faith we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. You will see how much terrible influence one man can have who gives himself up to the power of the "Evil One", for Simon Magus developed a very slick counterfeit Christianity, creating doctrines that will enable Antichrist to arise. Truly, some men have great power beyond their grave!
Let us examine Gnostic Doctrines so you can see how pernicious and Antichrist they truly are. Once again, we turn to Manly P. Hall:
"The Gnostics were divided in their opinions concerning the Demiurgus, or creator of the lower worlds ... One group of Gnostics was of the opinion that the Demiurgus was the cause of all misery and an evil creature ... Some Gnostics were of the opinion that the Jewish God, Jehovah, was the Demiurgus. This concept, under a slightly different name, apparently influenced mediaeval Rosicrucianism, which view Jehovah as the Lord of the material universe rather than as the Supreme Deity ..." ["The Secret Teaching of All The Ages", by Manly P. Hall, 33° Freemason, The Philosophical Research Society, 1988; Emphasis was in original]
Can you imagine the blasphemy inherent in this doctrine? In this belief, the Gnostics fulfill Bible prophecy, beliefs that Antichrist would present to the world:
They place Almighty God - Jehovah God -- into the ranks of an inferior god who just created the "lower worlds". What does Antichrist prophecy foretell?
"And the king (Antichrist) shall do according to his will; he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished ..." [Daniel 11:36; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Of course, Freemasonry teaches this very same thing about Jesus, except they go one step further to say that an inferior god created Jesus! Listen to Albert Pike:
"Communicating movement to Chaos, she (Mother of the Living) produced Ialdabaoth, the Demiurgis, Agent of Material Creation ... Ialdabaoth, to become independent of his mother, and to pass for the Supreme Being, made the world and man, in his own image ... the image of Ialdabaoth reflected upon matter, became the Serpent-Spirit, Satan, the Evil Intelligence. Eve, created by Ialdabaoth ..." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, Teachings of the 26°, Prince of Mercy, p. 563]
Once more, we see an instance in which Freemasonry proves itself identical to all the Satanic mysteries, just as Pike boasted (Page 624, 28th Degree). They teach the doctrine of the Demiurgis, and they teach other "astonishing things against the God of gods". Further, Pike goes on to brag about the "Christian Gnostics" -
After covering the specific beliefs of the various "Christian Gnostic" groups, Pike declares their one common belief: "... there is no doubt that all the Gnostic sects had Mysteries and an initiation. They all claimed to have a secret doctrine, coming to them directly from Jesus Christ, different from that of the Gospels and Epistles, and superior to those communications, which in their eyes, were merely exoteric. This secret doctrine, they did not communicate to everyone ... hardly one in a thousand knew it." [Ibid., p. 542]
Now, let us return to Manly P. Hall for more "astonishing things" the Gnostics believed. Prepare to be shocked:
"To the Gnostics, the Christ was the personification of Nous, the Divine Mind, and emanated from the higher spiritual Aeons. He descended into the body of Jesus at the baptism and left it again before the crucifixion. The Gnostics declared that the Christ was not crucified, as this Divine Nous could not suffer death, but that Simon the Cyrenian, offered his life instead and that the Nous, by means of its power, caused Simon to resemble Jesus." [Hall, op. cit., P. XXVI]
This teaching is most definitely Antichrist, for it separates Jesus' physical body from His Spirit, here called the "Christ Consciousness spirit". Returning to Albert Pike, we see that Freemasonry teaches the very same false doctrine. Jesus the man, according to this "leaven", did not realize he was Messiah until His baptism. When the Dove descended from Heaven, that was a symbol that the "Christ Consciousness" had come upon Him, and He realized He was the Jewish Messiah. However, this "Christ Consciousness" spirit left Him before the crucifixion. Once again, this is Antichrist teaching. Listen:
"And every spirit which does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him, is not of God [and] does not proceed from Him. This nonconfession is the spirit of the antichrist ..." [1 John 4:3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Now you firmly know that Gnosticism is clearly the "spirit" and doctrine of Antichrist! Keep this in mind as you contemplate the fact that this ABC documentary positively quotes the "Gnostic Gospels" in their strong desire to "prove" the Merovingian Bloodline Genealogy that will allow Antichrist to arise.
MEROVINGIAN BLOODLINE EXPLAINED
During the documentary, the ABC anchorwoman, Elizabeth Vargis, interviewed Henry Lincoln, one of the co-authors of the key book on the Merovingian Bloodline entitled "Holy Blood, Holy Grail". As we noted earlier, during this interview, Vargis succinctly stated the entire argument from Lincoln's book. Even though we quoted this definition in Part 1, let us repeat it here; this is the brief, but complete, definition of this bloodline lie.
"The Merovingian Bloodline traces back to Jesus and His descendants, i.e., Mary Magdalene and the child she bore. This bloodline was threatened by the Catholic Church so the truth had to be hidden. The Priory of Sion was assigned to protect the information about this bloodline." [Vargis]
Lincoln enthusiastically confirmed that Vargis "had it right"! She understood.
Since the documentary positively quotes Lincoln in his book, "Holy Blood, Holy Grail", I retrieved the volume off my bookshelf and re-read the last three chapters, as these were the summation chapters which drew all the separate strands together. What I discovered was that Lincoln was far more firm in his appearance in the ABC documentary on November 3, 2003, than he was in the book, published in 1982! In the book, we see many instances where Lincoln uses the indefinite words, "may, maybe, might, perhaps, and still cannot prove".
Why would the ABC documentary be far more positive about the reality of the Merovingian Bloodline than the 21-year-old book? Why would Lincoln be far more firm in this documentary than he was in his book? The only difference we can think of is that the appearance of Antichrist is far closer now than it was in 1982, and now is the time to condition the people to believe this lie.
Since this book is so key, let us examine key excerpts:
Jesus Was Not Crucified
"If Jesus' family did, indeed, find refuge in Gaul, their overlords, by the fifth century, would have been the Arian Visigoths ... with Visigoth patronage and protection it would have been secure against all threats from Rome ... Dagobert II married a Visigoth princess whose father was name Bera ... Despite the pact between the Church and Clovis, the Merovingians had always been subject to Arianism ... The Arien view of Jesus was quite in accord with that of the Koran. In the Koran, Jesus is mentioned no less than thirty-five times under a number of impressive appellations ... At no point, however, is he regarded as anything other than a mortal prophet, a forerunner of Muhammad and a spokesman for a single, supreme God ... the Koran maintains that Jesus did not die on the cross: 'they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they thought they did ... there was a substitute - generally, though not always supposed to have been Simon of Cyrene. Certain Muslim writers speak of Jesus hiding in a niche of a wall and watching the crucifixion of a surrogate - which concurs with the fragment already quoted by the Nag Hammadi scrolls." ["Holy Blood, Holy Grail", Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln, 1982., p. 386-7]
Judaism And The Merovingians
'The heresies, then provided us with no decisive confirmation of a connection between Jesus' family and the Merovingians, who appeared on the world scene some four centuries later .. At first glance, the evidence, such as it was, seemed to be meager. We had already considered the legendary birth of Merovee ... child of two fathers, one of whom was a mysterious aquatic creature from across the sea ... while the fish symbolism was suggestive, it was hardly conclusive ... And while the Merovingian royal bloodline was credited with a sacred, miraculous and divine nature, it was not explicitly stated anywhere that this blood was, in fact, Jesus." [p. 387]
In the documentary, Lincoln firmly and positively presented this hypothesis that the first queen of the Merovingians was impregnated by a "fish creature from the sea", which he said was clearly symbolic of the fish symbol the early Christians used for identification. The viewer is left with the impression that Lincoln considers this legend to be quite real, i.e., that this Merovingian legend substantiates that Jesus was the "fish creature" and Mary Magdalene was the first Merovingian queen.
Lincoln continues in his book:
"Such fragments were provocative, but they provided only tenuous support for our hypothesis -- that a bloodline descended from Jesus existed in the south of France, that this bloodline intermarried with the Merovingians, and that the Merovingians, in consequence, were partly Judaic." [p. 388] - Once again, Lincoln is very tentative in his book, but very firm in the ABC documentary.
"Jesus was of the Tribe of Judah, and the royal house of David. The Magdalen is said to have carried the Grail - the Sangraal or 'royal blood' - into France. And in the eighth century there was, in the south of France, a potentate of the Tribe of Judah and the royal house of David, who was acknowledged as king of the Jews. He was not only a practicing Jew, however; he was also a Merovingian. And through Wolfram von Eschenbach's poem, he and his family are associated with the Grail ... in 1165-66, Benjamin Tudela ... reports that in Narbonne there were 'sages, magnates and princes at the head of whom is ... a descendent of the House of David as stated in his family tree." [P. 395]
"Holy Grail" = Mary Magdalene's Womb
"If our hypothesis is correct, the Holy Grail would have been two things simultaneously. On the one hand, it would have been Jesus' bloodline and descendants -- the 'Sang Raal', the 'Real', or 'Royal' blood of the Templars, created by the Prieure de Sion, were appointed guardians. At the same time, the Holy Grail would have been, quite literally, the receptacle or vessel that received and contained Jesus' blood. In other words, it would have been the womb of the Magdalen - and by extension, the Magdalen herself ... It can be proved that many of the famous 'Black Virgins' or 'Black Madonnas' were early in the Christian era shrines not to the Virgin but to Magdalen and they depict mother and child ... the Holy Grail, then, would have symbolized both Jesus' bloodline and the Magdalen, from whose womb that bloodline issued." [Ibid.]
During the documentary, this point was huge, as Vargis returned time and again to the "Last Supper" painting of Leonard de Vinci to "prove" that Mary Magdalene was the "receptacle" of Jesus' blood because she was carrying His child! Remember, in occult literature, the "Holy Grail" was reported to be the cup Jesus used during the Last Supper, and that was carried to the crucifixion scene to catch some of Jesus' blood as it flowed down the cross. The "hard right turn" that this book and this documentary takes is to argue that, rather than being the cup, the Holy Grail was really Mary Magdalene carrying Jesus' unborn child as she fled to what is today southern France.
Reaching To Prove Their Point
"In A.D. 70, during the great revolt in Judaea, Roman legions under Titus sacked the temple of Jerusalem ... But the temple of Jerusalem may have contained more than the treasure plundered by Titus' centurions. In ancient Judaism ... Messiah was to be a priest-king whose authority encompassed spiritual and secular domains alike. It is thus likely, indeed probable, that the temple housed official records pertaining to Israel's royal line -- the equivalents of the birth certificates, marriage licenses, and other relevant data ... If Jesus was indeed 'King of the Jews' the temple is almost certain to have contained copious information relating to him. It may even have contained his body -- or at least the tomb, once his body was removed from the temporary tomb of the Gospels ... By 1100 Jesus' descendants would have risen to prominence in Europe ... They themselves would have known their pedigree and ancestry. But they might not have been able to prove their identity to the world at large; and such proof may well have been deemed necessary for their subsequent designs. If it were known that such proof existed, or even possibly existed, in the precincts of the temple, no effort would have been spared to find it. This would explain the role of the Knights Templar - who under a cloak of secrecy undertook excavations beneath the temple in the so-called Stables of Solomon ... there would seem to be little question that the Knights Templar were, in fact sent to the Holy Land ... they would seem to have found what they were sent to find, and they brought it back to Europe. [p. 400-1; Emphasis added]
The very idea that the Jewish priests in charge of the Temple in A.D. 70 would have hidden Jesus' body and/or His "equivalents of the birth certificates, marriage licenses, and other relevant data" reveals an astonishing lack of Biblical knowledge! Jewish Orthodox priests had totally rejected Jesus Christ and had been instrumental in pressuring Rome enough to carry out consistent persecution against Christians. In fact, the persecution was so bad within Israel that the Jewish Christians were scattered widely in an arc leading in all directions away from Jerusalem, just as Jesus had predicted would happen [Acts 1:8}
How bad was the persecution of the Christian Church? Let us go to a Bible Commentary to discover:
"After our Lord's resurrection the first attacks against His disciples came from the high priest and his party. The high-priesthood was then in the hands of the Sadducees, and one reason which moved them to take action of this kind was their `sore trouble,' because the apostles "proclaimed in Jesus the resurrection from the dead" (Acts 4:2; Acts 5:17). The gospel based upon the resurrection of Christ was evidence of the untruth of the chief doctrines held by the Sadducees, for they held that there is no resurrection. But instead of yielding to the evidence of the fact that the resurrection had taken place, they opposed and denied it, and persecuted His disciples. For a time the Pharisees were more moderate in their attitude toward the Christian faith ... But gradually the whole of the Jewish people became bitter persecutors of the Christians." [International Standard Bible Encyclopedia]
Untold thousands of Born Again Christians -- mostly Jewish Christians -- suffered terribly at the hands of Roman authorities who had been coerced into action by Jewish threats to create rebellion if the authorities would not persecute. Every Roman governor was expected by Rome to keep peace and stability in the lands over which they had been assigned. If rebellion was consistently springing up in a particular location, Rome would not wait too long before they took a hard look at the Roman governor, to see if he was mismanaging his region; therefore, Roman governors were very susceptible to blackmail by shrewd local leaders who threatened to instigate continual rebellion unless their demands were met. Since the most important issue to Jewish religious leaders from Jesus' crucifixion to the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70 was the burgeoning Christian Church, Roman governors were continually being threatened with insurrection if they did not persecute Christians.
With this understanding, how logical is it that the very Pharisees and Sadducees who were responsible for the Temple up until the moment of its utter destruction would have hidden Jesus' public records like birth records, and/or his body? The chance of this occurring was absolutely, completely zero! Therefore, this entire line of thinking that Jesus' public records were likely hidden in the Temple, waiting to be discovered, is nonsensical.
However, the old Nazi explanation of "truth" as viewed by propaganda still holds true: "Truth is not what is; truth is what people perceive it to be".
Knights Templar - Secret Society of Baphomet
In creating this Merovingian Bloodline myth, occult authors place much credence in the likelihood that the Jewish priests probably did hide Jesus' public records beneath the Temple just before the building burned to the ground. Then, they place even more credence in the story that the Knights Templar soldiers found much of these documents -- and much treasure as well -- when they seized control of Jerusalem; after much excavation, this story continues, they secretly moved both the treasure and the artifacts back to Templar headquarters in France. Speculation abounds that, perhaps, they even found the Ark of the Covenant, another important piece of archeological treasure Antichrist will need when he rebuilds Solomon's Temple.
Now, the story turns from the Templars military excursions to the Holy Land to their demise at the hands of the French king, working under the auspices of Pope Clement V.
When the Knights Templar temple-fortress headquarters in Paris was attacked on Friday, October 13, 1307, by the French forces of King Philip, the official "take-down" of the order was inefficient. Listen to a secular historian describe the situation:
"There is ample evidence that de Molay and his principal officers had to have been aware that something was stirring ... The Templar master for Paris issued an order to every Templar commandery in France to tighten security and under no circumstance to reveal anything regarding the secret rituals and meetings ... just before dawn (October 12, Thursday) an event would occur of such shattering dimensions that the date, Friday the Thirteenth, would live for centuries in the minds of millions as the unluckiest day of the year. And indeed it was for the Order of the Temple as Philip's troops descended on every Templar commandery over an area of one hundred fifty thousand square miles to put fifteen thousand men into the chains that had been made ready for them." ["Born In Blood: The Lost Secrets of Freemasonry", by John L. Robinson, p. 131-133]
While the attack against the Templars proceeded only fairly well in France, foreign states in Europe were not being helpful to either King Philip or Pope Clement V. In fact, many of the Templars had escaped the clutches of King Philip's soldiers and fled to an adjoining state that was resisting the Pope's call for them to arrest all Templars within their borders. While fleeing to several European foreign countries, the word went out that England and Scotland were the most lenient to the Templars and the most resistant to the Pope. Therefore, Templars fled in large numbers to these lands, setting up the secret society that would ultimately become Freemasonry [Robinson, p. 159-170].
The bottom line concerning the Knights Templar is that these occult authors believe the Knights did discover evidence linking Jesus to Mary Magdalene and proving He had a family; these occultists further believe the Templars entrusted this evidence to the Priory of Sion, and that from this evidence, the genealogy charts that this ABC documentary showed were created.
Now that we understand the importance of the Knights Templar, let us now return for more information from Lincoln's book, "Holy Blood, Holy Grail".
The Final Humanistic Lie
"Quite simply, there is no reason why Jesus could not have married and fathered children while still retaining his divinity. There is no reason whatever why his divinity should be dependent on sexual chastity. Even if he were the Son of God, there is no reason why he should not have wed and sired a family. Underlying most Christian theology is the assumption that Jesus is God incarnate .... God taking pity on His creation, incarnated Himself in that creation and assumed human form. By doing so He would be able to acquaint Himself at first hand ... with the human creation ... But could God, incarnate as Jesus, truly claim to be a man, to encompass the spectrum of human experience, without coming to know to of the most basic, most elemental facets of the human condition? Could God claim to know the totality of the human existence without confronting two such essential aspects of humanity, as sexuality and paternity?" ["Holy Blood, Holy Grail", Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln, 1982. p. 408-9]
This conclusion is certainly blasphemous, and reminds me of the prophecy, quoted above, that Antichrist will speak "astonishing things" against the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. But, there is a deeper level of complete spiritual blindness exhibited in this quote. Modern Humanism is nothing more, nor less, than the assumption that all of man's problems can be solved from within man. A corollary to this belief is that sexuality is one of THE keys to understanding human psychology. Modern advertising has discovered that sex sells almost every product on earth, which is why we see so much sexual content in our advertising.
Therefore, it is not surprising to see this occult belief that Jesus could not really know what it was like to be a human unless He married and had sexual relations! I have never, ever thought that my beloved Savior was "lacking" because he never had sex! The emotional feelings created by sex between a man and a wife are also felt between a parent and their children, for example -- feelings of bonding, love, and commitment. Certainly, Jesus experienced these kinds of human relationship, so He was certainly not lacking in an experiential understanding of these emotions in humans.
Further, these occult authors show their lack of Biblical understanding when they state that God decided to become human because he took "pity on His creation". The Bible teaches that God decided in Eternity Past that He would come in human form to die for the sins of His Elect! He did not create man first, then take pity on His creation and decide to incarnate to "help them". Before He created the first molecule of this present world, and certainly before He created the first man and woman, the Godhead decided that the Son would incarnate, carry out His ministry and go to death on the cross! His death was no accident, nor was Jesus taken aback by the sudden passions swirling in and around Jerusalem at this time, passions that many say abruptly overwhelmed Him and caused Him to be killed.
No, Jesus knew in Eternity Past that He would come to die as a perfect sacrifice for sin.
Listen to the Apostle Peter enunciate this most important doctrine:
"Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it." [Acts 2:22-24]
This one verse speaks of the "determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God" in Eternity Past, where God decided that His Son would come to earth to die for sinners; and this same verse speaks to the omnipotent power by which God raised Jesus up from the grave. Since God possesses omnipotent power, He could certainly have prevented Jesus' crucifixion, to intervene if His Son has "lost control of the situation". Indeed, Jesus speaks to this specific issue:
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus agonized all night over His impending death, spending much time in prayer to His beloved Father. When the Roman Guard came to arrest Him, one of the apostles pulled his sword and sliced off the ear of one of the soldiers. Jesus heals the ear and then tells His apostle:
"Then Jesus said to him, Put your sword back into its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will immediately provide Me with more than twelve legions [ more than 80,000] of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must come about this way?" [Matthew 26:52-53; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
God's power decided in Eternity Past that Jesus would come to live, minister, and die a perfect sacrificial death on the cross. If Jesus had commanded 80,000 angels to deliver Him from the cross, all of God's prophecies of this sacrifice for sins would have come to nothing, and God would have been proven a liar! Therefore, Jesus died a predetermined death by exercising His omnipotent power to ensure that all the Old Testament prophecies concerning His death, burial, and resurrection would occur exactly as they had been uttered!
Jesus death on the cross was and shall always be, history's supreme example of the victory of a loving, Sovereign God over Death, Hell, and Satan!
THE FINAL GOAL -- A PRIEST-KING OVER ALL
"... there would seem to be little point in the Prieure de Sion's elaborate designs -- unless those designs are in some crucial way linked with politics. Whatever the theological repercussions of our conclusions, there would seem, quite clearly, to be other repercussions as well -- political repercussions with a potentially enormous impact, affecting the thinking, values, the institutions of the contemporary world in which we live ... In many of its documents Sion asserts that the new king, in accordance with Merovingian tradition, would 'rule but not govern'. In other words, he would be a priest-king who functions primarily in a ritual and symbolic capacity; and the actual business of governing would be handled by someone else -- conceivably the Prieure de Sion ... Needless to say, our understanding ... can be only speculative. But they would seem to include a theocratic United States of Europe - a trans- or pan-European confederation assembled into a modern empire and ruled by a dynasty descended from Jesus. This dynasty would not only occupy a throne of political or secular power, but quite conceivably the throne of Saint Peter as well." ["Holy Blood, Holy Grail"; P. 410-411]
"There is also, increasingly, a desire for a 'true' leader - not a fuhrer, but a species of wise and benign spiritual figure, a priest-king, in whom mankind can safely repose its trust. Our civilization has sated itself with materialism and in the process become aware of a more profound hunger. It is now beginning to look elsewhere, seeking the fulfillment of emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs. Such an atmosphere would seem eminently conducive to the Prieure de Sion's objectives. It places Sion in the position of being able to offer an alternative to existing social and political systems ... How might the advent of Jesus' lineal descendant be interpreted? To a receptive audience, it might be a kind of Second Coming." [Ibid., P. 412-413]
Thus, the Merovingian Priest-King is the ultimate goal of all this planning and scheming; occultists call him "The Christ", but the Bible calls him "Antichrist". The key to understanding this issue and to why it has been aired now is to realize that the coming Antichrist cannot hope to deceive the Jewish people that he is their long-awaited Messiah unless he can prove his genealogy all the way back to King David. However, if they can "prove" a genealogy that plugs into the physical Jesus in most people's minds, Matthew, Chapter One will take them instantly back to King David.
Therefore, it is imperative that both Jew and Gentile believe this Merovingian Bloodline Genealogy lie. Since most people forget what they have been told in less than 24 hours, it seems logical that a worldwide airing of this lie would occur just before Antichrist arises, not 10 years before. Of course, ABC might be planning many more such airings for the some years so that the majority of the peoples of the world would really get the message! We really cannot, at this point, be dogmatic about the final timing of all events.
But, as events seem to be swirling quickly to some sort of a climax, the airing of this ABC special is interesting, to say the least. What did Jesus say we should be doing as we recognize that the End of the Age is coming to a climax as we correctly join current world events to prophecy? Listen:
"Keep awake then and watch at all times, be discreet, attentive, and ready, praying ..." [Luke 21:36a; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Jesus also counseled:
"Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near." [Matthew 21:28; Ibid]
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
