Satan's Counterfeit Israel, Antichrist & World Rule
Revelation 17:18, “And the woman
which thou sawest
is that great city,
which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”

The ACCURATE way to look at Israel, the Antichrist and world government is to see Present-Day Israel, the Antichrist and the Antichrist's rule over the world as Satan's counterfeit of true Israel, Jesus Christ and Christ's Millennial Kingdom.
According to Revelation 17:18 (our text verse), Jerusalem is that great city, The Great Whore, which reigneth over the kings of the earth! Or more specifically, the Illuminati (hierarchy of the power of darkness) who control Israel and the United States reign over the kings of the earth. Of course, Lucifer (Satan) is at the top of the hierarchy of power. Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
The Devil imitates everything that God does, trying to deceive mankind. A classic example is the Antichrist, who will come in an attempt to trick the world into receiving him as the true Messiah.
Most Bible students have concluded that the Catholic church is The Great Whore, but Mystery Babylon includes all of today's false religions that are a part of the New World Order. The occult All Seeing Eye, Obelisk (such as the Washington Monument) and The Great Pyramid are all a part of the Ancient Mystery Religion of Egypt, and continued from Babylon until present-day, which has been at work by Satan in the world since the tower and city of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9, and since the serpent offered Eve knowledge of good and evil in exchange for eating the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:5-7). To the point, the Ancient Mystery Religion, which is the core of New Age and Theosophy, is Lucifer worship!
When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit (thus disobeying God), they became “as gods” in Genesis 3:22 (hence the “322” used by the Skull & Bones secret society. Lucifer offers men “godhood” by ascending through multiple levels of occult enlightenment (e.g., Kaballah has 125 levels, Freemasonry has 33 levels, et cetera). In the occult (which means hidden) there is always something you don't know, which is intended to keep men “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2nd Timothy 3:7). Kaballah is a substitute for the Gospel. Freemasonry is a substitute for the church.
Whereas it is the New Testament Church which is God's vehicle for evangelizing the world; Freemasonry is Satan's vehicle to bring to fruition a New World Order and prepare the masses to embrace the coming man of sin, the Antichrist (the Beast). In order to prepare people to receive the “MAN OF SIN” (2nd Thessalonians 2:3), social groups must be desensitized to the awfulness of sin; hence, the reason for the moral meltdown of America, Europe and the world. Satan is the Boss of Hollywood, the cesspool of iniquity of the world! Hollywood's Satanic Antichrist Preparation.
Whereas the Bible prophesies that Jesus Christ Himself will return one day to sit upon the literal throne of David and reign over the earth triumphant from Jerusalem; the Antichrist is Satan's gimmick (substitute) for Christ, professing himself that he is the Messiah, God (2nd Thessalonians 2:4). Since the Antichrist is a counterfeit, naturally he is going to need a counterfeit Israel. And if Satan needs a false Israel for his false Messiah, then he also needs false Jews. Jesus warned in Revelation 2:9 about false Jews of the synagogue of Satan who claim to be true Jews. For nearly everything in God's prophetic plan, the Devil has a counterfeit to deceive the human race. We even see the trio of the False Prophet, the Beast and the Dragon—imitating God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
And yes, Satan has many counterfeit Bibles too (like the perverted New International Version [NIV]), imitating the genuine King James Bible. It is very sad, even depressing, when I stop to realize that so many Independent Baptist churches these days are supporting a counterfeit Israel, reading from a counterfeit Bible, and in many cases even teaching a counterfeit plan of salvation based on a counterfeit understanding of repentance (aka, Lordship Salvation). Satan is a master counterfeiter!
If you understand that the coming Antichrist is Satan's imitation of Christ, then it should also become obvious to you that Satan has a false Israel too. Whereas Biblical Christians are looking for the return of Jesus Christ to establish His earthly kingdom; heathen Zionists are looking for their false Messiah, the Antichrist, to reign over the world. The New World Order will be the Antichrist's counterfeit of Christ's true coming kingdom during the 1,000 year millennium. The Antichrist will claim to be the Messiah, even proclaiming to be God from the temple in Jerusalem, but he will be an imposter. The unsaved world will eagerly follow the Antichrist when he comes, but many will refuse. At the halfway point through the Tribulation, the Beast (Antichrist) will demand worship of his image from everyone on earth or they will be executed! This event is called The Abomination Of Desolation!
So we see that there will be a false Christ (Messiah) and a false Israel. The true Israel will be regathered to the Promised Land only when Jesus returns to set up His kingdom, and not before. The attempt to restore Israel since 1948 is a Zionist movement by Marxist/Communist false Jews who are led by the international banking cabal. The Illuminati by war and bloodshed put Israel back onto the map in 1948 as a vehicle by which to control the kings of the world. How does Israel rule over the kings of the earth? It's the international banking cabal. Their official headquarters is The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR created the United Nations (UN)! Starting to get the picture?
The ACCURATE way to look at Israel, the Jews and the Antichrist is to see Present-Day Israel, the Antichrist and the Antichrist's rule over the world as Satan's counterfeit of true Israel, Jesus Christ and Christ's Millennial Kingdom.
Is it so hard to believe that present-day Israel is a satanic decoy for true Israel? True Israel will accept her true Messiah, Jesus. Present-day Judaism which controls Israel rejects Jesus as the Messiah. They are wholeheartedly looking for the false Messiah of the Antichrist, which is why he will stand in the Jewish temple one day and claim to be God (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:14; 2nd Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 13:15).
WALL STREET AND THE RISE OF HITLER (by Antony C. Sutton)
The nation of Israel was put back on the map in 1948 by the Rothschild's led banking cabal. William Guy Carr in his timeless book, PAWNS IN THE GAME, documents the history of the international banking cartel and how they've started and financed BOTH sides of every major war in America since the Revolutionary War of 1776 (full book, .PDF file). Truth is stranger than fiction!
Also, read THE NEW WORLD ORDER by S.Z. Batten written in 1919. Batten appeals to the church to wake up to the reality that the New World Order will use war to accomplish their goals. The book was written after World War I, but before World War II. Batten states on page 148, “Christianity has suffered much from the wrong thinking of bad men, but even more from the small thinking of good men.” What a true statement!
If you don't get anything else from this article, recognize that the nation of Israel today is a counterfeit. God has not gathered His people yet. Present-day Israel is controlled by Marxists and Communists, haters of Christ and the Bible. The Bible teaches that 144,000 Jews of the tribes of Israel (Revelation 7:4) will be saved at the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation. During the Tribulation God restores His covenant with Old Testament Israel. The Times Of The Gentiles will end at the Rapture. Then Israel will become the main focus once again.
Present-Day Israel Is Not The Fulfillment Of Bible Prophecy
Here is an accurate, Biblical and excellent statement from Pastor J. Vernon McGee (1904-1988) concerning why present-day Israel is NOT the fulfillment of Bible prophecy . . .
“Israel is just like any other nation. Some think they're a little brutal, but my friend, they're on the defense over there, you can be sure of that. And they have to exercise a strong defense system. They're not backing that land in fulfillment of prophecy. They have returned to the land, but they have not yet returned to the Lord. When they return to the Lord there will be blessing. They have not yet done that!
...they went out in 70 A.D. And they actually have never returned to the land according to the Word of God. Now hear me very carefully because this is very important to see. They have returned to the land today, and it's remarkable what has happened over there, but it's not the fulfillment of prophecy, because the prophecy says when they return they'll return TO GOD!”
SOURCE: Pastor J. Vernon McGee; THRU-THE-BIBLE; Hosea 2:19-23 and Hosea 3:4.
In his “THRU-THE-BIBLE” commentary for Hosea 3:5, Dr. McGee stresses the truth that there are more Arab Christians in Israel today than there are Jewish Christians. Upon a return trip to visit Israel, Pastor McGee makes the startling comment, “Over there there's no turning to God, at all!” While visiting he saw a big motto in Israel which read: “SCIENCE WILL BRING PEACE TO THIS LAND.” Israel is a Godless nation today! Dr. McGee cites a credible source as saying that there are less than 300 Israelites that are real believers in Israel today! The Russian Catholic Church owns much land in Israel today, as do Greek Orthodox and Muslims. Hosea 3:5 evidences the fact that Israel's present return to the land is not the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy today.
Albeit, God's people (the elect, born again believers) will be gathered when the Lord returns (Jews and Gentiles included, Galatians 3:29). Again, only born-again Christians will be gathered to the Promised Land (Galatians 3:26-29). Kindly, no Christ-rejecting Jew will ever escape the fires of Hell, and no Christ-receiving Gentile will ever be denied residence in the New Jerusalem. Israel has not been restored yet. Hosea tells us that in the End Times that Israel will SEEK AND FEAR THE LORD (this hasn't happened yet). . .
Hosea 2:21-23 and Hosea 3:5, “And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the LORD, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel. And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God. ... Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.”
Judaizers who openly reject Jesus as the Messiah will be cast into the Lake of Fire for their unbelief (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:15). Jesus told Nicodemus (a Jew), “Ye must be born again” (John 3:1-7). No Christ-rejecting Jew will enter into the Promised Land simply because they are biologically related to Abraham. The PROMISE made to Abraham's seed (descendants) only apply to those who are in Christ...
Galatians 3:26-29, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
We must distinguish between the true nation of Israel that God will restore verses the present-day fraudulent State of Israel put there by men...
