The False Messiah of 1666
In 1666 Sabbatai Zevi declared himself to be the messiah. More than half of the world’s Jewish population in the 17th Century came to accept and follow him as their messiah. Sabbatai Zevi, who proclaimed salvation through sin, was condemned as a heretic by many contemporary Rabbis.
“Then, if anyone says to you, behold, here is the Christ, or there he is, do not believe him. For false christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:23-24
“Take heed that no one deceives you.” Matthew 24:4
“For many will come in My Name, saying, I am the Christ and will mislead many.” Matthew 24:5
Salvation Through Sin
Sabbatai Zevi was born on 1st August 1626, in Anatolia, present day Turkey. He was a Sephardic Jew, ordained a Rabbi in Smyrna (now Izmir, Turkey). Sabbatai Zevi was active throughout the Ottoman Turkish Empire, teaching from the Talmud and the Kabbalah. Sabbatai Zevi’s message of redemption through sin was enthusiastically received by many. Fast days became days of feasting, sexual promiscuity, adultery, incest and orgies. He taught that every Law was to be broken. Religious taboos such as against eating of pork and every form of sexual immorality was not only permitted but encouraged.
Sabbatai Zevi (1626 – 1676) was described by his contemporaries as an exceptionally charismatic Rabbi and Kabbalist, an eccentric mystic who attained a massive following of more than a million devotees during his lifetime. The publication of the Lurianic Kabbalah made Zevi extraordinarily popular in the 17th Century amongst Jewish people throughout Europe and the Ottoman Empire.
The Lurianic Kabbalah promoted an occultic deeper meaning for Jewish mysticism drawing from ancient Babylonian occultism and numerology.
The Occultic Power of Dates and Numbers
Sabbatai Zevi emphasised the magical supernatural relationship between events and time, through letters and numbers. The numerological value of dates contributed greatly to the widely held expectations and hopes of the Jewish messiah to arrive on the 18th day (6+6+6) of the 6th month, of the year 1666.
Visions and Dreams
One eyewitness, Rabbi Leib Ben Ozer, wrote that Zevi was: handsome, possessed an enchanting presence and singing voice. Many wrote that there was none like Zevi in stature and his face burned with intensity like fire. Many of his contemporaries claimed to have been converted to following Zevi when he appeared to them in dreams by the side of their beds. Many Rabbis of the time publicly testified to having seen visions in which Sabbatai Zevi appeared to them by their beds. They would awake professing belief in him as messiah!
Professor Gersham Sholem, explained that a sincere expectation has arisen in the psyche of many Jews that their messiah would come and lead them back to establishing a Jewish homeland.
Maniac – Depressive Psychosis
According to some critical interpretations of his behaviour, Sabbatai showed signs of what modern scholars call maniac-depressive psychosis. He publicly displayed ecstatic behaviour, often followed by bouts of depression and seclusion.
However, many of his modern-day followers argue that his behaviour was simply what one should expect from religious mystics such as a Sufi: meditative chanting, trances and ecstatic dancing.
The Sufi Connection
According to Professor Avraham Elqayam, a faculty member of the Jewish Philosophy Department at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, Sabbatai frequently engaged in Bektashi Sufi rituals. In fact, Sabbatai Zevi’s grave site in Albania remains a Sufi shrine to this day.
Zevi’s socially immoral and religiously unacceptable behaviour led to him being expelled from Smyrna around 1650. For years he wandered through Greece, Thrace, Egypt and Syria.
Rabbi Nathan of Gaza
However, in 1665 his life changed forever when he met Rabbi Nathan of Gaza, in Palestine, who persuaded whim that he was indeed the messiah to usher in a new age. Rabbi Nathan convinced Sabbatai Zevi that he needed to formally reveal himself in the year 1666 to fulfil messianic prophecy.
Acceptance and Rejection
Zevi soon gained further support from the Diaspora by promising Jews a return to their homeland and a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. Although Zevi received strong support and was very popular amongst Jewish people, the leading Rabbis of Jerusalem rejected Sabbatai’s claims that he was the messiah. The Rabbis of Jerusalem ordered him to leave the city, or be excommunicated.
Sabbatai returned to Turkey where the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire allowed him free reign to build up a phenomenal following. Jews from all over the world, from as far afield as England to Persia, from Germany to Morocco, from Poland to Yemen, poured into the Ottoman Empire to see, hear and meet their messiah.
“Your Head or The Turban!”
However, after Sabbatai publicly proclaimed that the next year the temple in Jerusalem would be rebuilt, the Sultan was galvanised into action. Fearing a revolt that would lead to this province declaring independence from the Ottoman Empire, the Sultan confronted Sabbatai Zevi with the choice of either publicly converting to Islam, or being beheaded. As the Sultan delicately put in: “Your head or the turban!” The turban was a symbol of converting to Islam.
It came as a shock to many of his supporters that their supposed long-awaited messiah denounced his Jewish faith on the spot and chose to wear the Islamic turban to keep his head! Zevi publicly converted to Islam and adopted a new Muslim name: Aziz Mehmed Effenti – (“Power of Mohammed”). From then on Zevi was on salary as a servant of the Sultan with the cryptic title: “Keeper of the Gate.”
Conversion to Islam
Zevi continued unabated in his messianic activities and also continued to receive the full support of the Islamic authorities and the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. While Sabbatai’s formal conversion to Islam dismayed and disillusioned many of his followers, many took it as a sign to also convert to Islam, while maintaining their Jewish identity and mystical Kabbalah Sabbatean practices.
One of these Sabbatean cults, primarily located in Anatolia (modern day Turkey) were called the Dönmeh (which translates to religious converts a derogatory term which they themselves never used).
To Build Back Better
Sabbatean followers explained his apparent apostasy as a “descent into the grossest reality, or husks, of creation” in order to “reclaim the lost sparks of divine light” to repair the world! These Kabbalist concepts were used to justify his heretical, apostate and degenerate behaviour.
Redemption Through Deception
According to Reb Yakov Leib Hakohain, the current director of Dönmeh West, a Californian Sabbat organisation founded in 1972: Sabbatai’s conversion to Islam was not an act of cowardice, or apostasy, that betrayed the Jewish people because his conversion was one of the mystical Ma’asin Zarim that the messiah was destined to perform based upon their reading of the Kabbalah.
False Conversions to Subvert Religions
In keeping with Isaac Luria’s prophecies in the Lurian Kabbalah, these actions of breaking laws, being a false convert, deception and degeneracy, were essential to bring about conditions that would set the stage, initiate, or directly expedite the fulfilment of Jewish messianic prophecy. Jews were to play an active role in bringing about and bringing forth god’s kingdom on earth by infiltrating, subverting and destroying every other religion and kingdom on earth.
To Harness Evil for Good
The Kabbalah teaches a mystical synthesis between pagan teachings which preceded the Torah and gnostic elements of Judaism. The task is not to destroy evil but “to return it to its source.” To “include the left within the right, to uplift the fallen sparks.” The Chaldean, or Babylonian, mysticism and occultism provided “the most authentic version of the Kabbalah.”
To Undermine and Replace Every State and Religion
This new “philosophic paradigm provided a spiritual justification for proactive Zionism to bring about the formation of a Jewish state” which would undermine and replace all other states worldwide. The mystical Lurianic Kabbalah transformed the messiah from a popular conquering national hero to a supreme cosmic conqueror.
Build Back Better
The goal was not merely the emancipation of Jews from the yoke of the Gentiles, but of fundamental transformation of the entirety of creation affecting material and spiritual worlds alike. This was to lead to, in the words of Gersham Scholem: “A ratification of the primordial catastrophe of the breaking of the vessels (Shevirat Hakelim).” Or repairing the world. The goal was to break everything down so that it can be “built back better.”
According to Sabbatai Zevi, the acts that God’s people must take include deliberate forays into the world of sin, where “the illusory nature of evil could be more readily exposed and the sparks elevated to their source.”
Infiltration and Subversion
With the declaration of Sabbatia Zevi as the messiah in 1666, the Zionist goal of infiltrating, subverting and ultimately replacing every other religion and kingdom and transforming every government on earth into a new world order became a central focus.
The New Age
Rabbi Nathan of Gaza declared that they were entering into a new age where all religious laws prior to Sabbatai Zevi were essentially “obsolete.” Now traditional religious taboos such as eating of pork, which was forbidden by Jewish dietary law, was abolished. Former fast days were now to be feast days.
Making the Forbidden Permissible
One of the oft quoted prayers of Zevi was: “Blessed art Thou Lord our God, King of the Universe, who makes the forbidden things permissible.”
Strange Acts to Rescue Divine Sparks
Sabbatai Zevi declared that his duty was to descend through the gates of impurity into the impure realm of Kelipot and to “rescue the divine sparks” still imprisoned there. The messiah was constrained to commit strange acts (Ma’asim Zarim) which included apostasy, adultery, theft, idolatry, deception and covetousness. All of these breaking of every Law of God was “necessary” for the fulfilment of messiah’s mission.
The psychology of the Sabbateans was utterly paradoxical. Essentially its guiding principle was: whoever is as he appears cannot be a true believer. In practice, this meant that true faith could not be faith which men publicly profess. On the contrary, true faith must always be concealed. For a Sabbatean it is their duty to deny their true faith outwardly, because it is a seed planted in the bed of the soul and it cannot grow unless it has first been covered over.
Through Concealment and Deception
This theme of a secret, hidden, or occultic, identity, became part of this Sabbatean religious philosophy. In essence, a true act cannot be committed publicly, to be seen by the world. Like true faith, a true act must be concealed. Because only through concealment could it negate the falsehood of what is explicit.
A Revolution of Values
So, through a revolution of values, what was formally sacred became profane and what was formally profane, became sacred. The Sabbatean Sect which flourished during the lifetime of Sabbatai Zevi and afterwards continued to indulge in wife sharing, religious sex orgies, adultery and incest.
Comparisons and Connections
It is thought by some scholars that Zevi had some deep connections with the Bektashi Sufi order of Islam. Some similarities through the Sabbatean Dönmeh and the Bektashi Sufi practices include the deliberate violation of Kashrut/Halaal, ritualistic group sex and wife-swapping, ecstatic singing, or chanting, mystical Kabbalah and belief in the hidden occultic reading of the Torah and the Koran.
The Festival of the Lamb
The Sabbateans in Salonika regularly held a celebration on the 22nd Day of the Hebrew month of Adar, known as The Festival of the Lamb. This festival included getting drunk and extinguishing the lights. In the total darkness there was religious sexual sharing of wives and daughters.
Regeneration Through Degeneration
Their teaching was that as a grain of wheat must rot in the earth, before it can sprout, so the deeds of believers must become fully rotten before they can germinate in salvation. This conveys the Sabbatean theology in a nutshell: Salvation comes through sin. Redemption is achieved through deception.
The Sabbatean Roots of Freemasonry and Marxism
According to Gershom Scholem: Sabbateanism is the matrix of every significant movement to have emerged in the 18th and 19th Century, from Hasidism, to Reformed Judaism, to Freemasonry and Marxist Revolutionary Communism.
To Establish a New World Order
Sabbatean believers teach that they are the champions of a new world order which will be established by overthrowing the values of all other religions and kingdoms. They teach the “holiness of sin.”
Jacob Frank – The False Prophet of Sabbatai Zevi
Fifty years after the death of Sabbatai Zevi, Jacob Frank was born. Jerry Rabow in his book The Untold Story of 50 Jewish Messiahs, reported that Jacob Frank believed that he was the reincarnation of Sabbatai Zevi.
What Was once Forbidden is Now Commanded
Jacob Frank continued and extended the paradoxical teachings of Sabbatai Zevi declaring that with the coming of the messianic age, Zevi had transformed sexual prohibitions of the Bible into permissions and obligations. The only way to purify the soul is through sexual immorality and orgies. Debauchery is therapy.
The Therapy of Debauchery
Jacob Frank asserted that the God of the Bible is evil and Jews need to reject every moral law and commandment. The only way to a new world order was through the total destruction of Christian civilisation. Jacob Frank insisted that child sacrifice, rape, incest and the drinking of blood were perfectly acceptable and necessary religious rituals. Salvation is through sin. Redemption is achieved through deception.
Domination Through Infiltration
Jacob Frank also convinced his followers that the only way for their special form of Judaism to survive was for them to outwardly become Christians just as the Dönmeh had descended into the world of Islam.
Purification Through Transgression
Jewish authorities in Poland excommunicated Frank and his followers and rejected his concepts of purification through transgression.
Apostacy and Debauchery
Jacob Frank then converted to both Islam and Catholicism. He held annual spring time Lamb Festivals which consisted of drug use, sacrifice, nudity and the exchanges of spouses and daughters for immoral religious sex. Frank preached that true Jewish believers were to cross every boundary, transgress every taboo and to mix the sacred with the profane. Eve Frank (1754 – 1816) his daughter, was called the holy matron of the Sabbatean movement. She served as a central figure in the sex rituals of the sect in Poland.
Jacob Frank had approximately 50,000 disciples. But, although his following was smaller than that of Sabbatai Zevi, Jacob Frank’s cult would grow to become far more influential as it recruited some of Europe’s most influential royalty, nobility and the richest bankers on earth.
Most Corrupt and Terrifying
Gershom Scholem describes Jacob Frank as: “One of the most frightening phenomena in the whole of Jewish history, a religious leader, who for whether purely selfish motives, or otherwise, was, in all his actions a truly corrupt and degenerate individual.”
Follow Their Messiah into the Abyss
Jacob Frank taught that one has to free oneself from all laws, conventions and religions, to adopt every conceivable attitude and to reject it, to follow their messiah step by step into the abyss. The annihilation of every religion was the true way.
Cast Down to The Bottom of The Abyss
In order to ascend one must first descend. No man can climb a mountain until he has first descended to its foot. Therefore, we must descend and be cast down to the bottom rung, for only then can we climb to the infinite. This is the principle of “Jacob’s Ladder”, which is “shaped like a V.” “I did not come into this world to lift you up, but rather to cast you down to the bottom of the abyss.”
Rejecting All Law and Authority
Jacob Frank taught antinomianism, the rejection of all law and Libertinism, the rejection of all authority. He demanded from his followers voluntary abasement and utter shamelessness. A Sabbatean needs to be able to commit every sin without any sense of shame, remorse, or guilt.
Nihilism and Deception to Destroy Christian Europe
Jacob Frank’s Kabbalist interpretations led to Nihilism. He taught that one conquered through deception. Frank taught that Israel’s exile was not a consequence of its sins at all, but part of a plan to bring about the destruction of all Gentiles throughout the world. To establish a Jewish state back in Palestine was not sufficient. The whole order of the world, especially Christian Europe, must be subverted and destroyed.
The Illuminati and Rothschild Connections
In his classic book, To Eliminate the Opiate, Rabbi Marvin Antelman revealed that Jacob Frank got his financing from the Rothschild financial empire based in Frankfurt and worldwide influence by his alliance with Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati.
Rothschild and Weishaupt Form the illuminati with Frank
When Jacob Frank entered Frankfurt, an alliance had already begun between Mayer Amshel Rothschild, the immensely wealthy banker of Frankfurt and Adam Weishaupt who was the son of a Jewish Kabbalist Rabbi in Bavaria. Educated by Jesuits, Weishaupt became a Roman Catholic priest and then formed an alliance with Mayer Rothschild.
The Launch of The Illuminati New Age
On 1st May 1776. Weishaupt chose the timing of the launching of the Illuminati in accordance with Sabbatean Kabbalist teachings. He chose the 1st May because May, the 5-month added to the first day equals 6. He chose 1776 because the 4 numbers of this year add up to 21 (1+7+7+6 = 21). Also, the sacred number 6 + 21 = 27, another number with occultic Kabbalist powers. They believe this because it is formed by multiplying three by nine. Weishaupt carefully chose this date because he believed that even the greatest plans would be doomed to failure if not carried out at the most numerical advantageous time.
Adam Weishaupt, Mayer Rothschild and Jacob Frank launched the Illuminati on 1st May 1776 in Frankfurt with the long-term political goals of:
1. Abolition of all monarchies and all governments.
2. Abolition of private property and inheritances.
3. Abolition of nationalism.
4. Abolition of the family and the institution of marriage.
5. Abolition of all religion.
6. Establishment of compulsory communal education for all children.
Anyone who has read Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto of 1848 will immediately recognise the Illuminati agenda clearly articulated.
Understanding the Times and The Threat
It is impossible to understand the present Cancel Culture, BLM, Gender Confusion, Lockdown Lunacy, Masquerade Madness, Covid Cult, Salvation by Vaccination, Christphobia, Hollywood Degeneracy, Indoctrination through Education, Mainstream Media, United Nations and European Union pronouncements and activities without understanding the Sabbatean roots of the New World Disorder.
The Jeffrey Epstein Connection
In many ways Jeffrey Epstein epitomises the Sabbatean religion. The weird cubic temple with Islamic type dome on Jeffrey Epstein’s Island which reportedly led down to an underground chamber has been described as a sex-dungeon and Luciferian temple. The building is painted with blue and white stripes, the same colours as the flag of the State of Israel. Jeffrey Epstein certainly seemed to epitomise the Sabbatean philosophy of unrestrained sexual debauchery and deception.
The Harvey Weinstein Hollywood Connection
So too did Hollywood producer, sexual predator and rapist Harvey Weinstein and many of his highly influential friends, which include world leaders. Understanding Sabbateanism helps one understand the times and the threat that confronts us. “While they promise them freedom, they themselves are slaves of depravity.” 2 Peter 2:19
