The Origin of Anti-Semitism

Scripture: Genesis 7 v 11 - 13: "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 
 12  And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
 13  In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;"

In a 19th century book by Alexander Hislop called The Two Babylons I discovered some hidden gems, one of which was new knowledge concerning Noah's son, Shem.

He was the original Shemite, from whom the Jews, not yet a people separated for God's purposes, became known as Semites.  From this we also get the word, anti-Semitic, or against the Jews.  Seeing as this is such a volatile global issue, what did Shem do that caused his name to be so contentious?

Abraham came after the Flood and was led by God into the Promised Land.  His son, Isaac, was the father of Jacob and Esau, and Jacob was named "Israel" by God.   Jacob was the father of the twelve patriarchs of the tribes of Israel.  Yet the dishonour falls on Shem!

I have also written about Semiramis and Nimrod from Babylon who lived at the time that the tower of Babel was built.  This was an astrological observatory and part of the Occult religion that was observed by the Babylonian Priesthood.  Nimrod was elevated to the god, Baal, by Semiramis, his mother, who then married him to become a goddess.  She was a very powerful witch, and throughout these regions which Nimrod conquered, she and he were known by many different names.

Nimrod was the great hunter of men's souls.  He conquered many lands.  In Egypt, he and his mother were known as Isis and Osiris, the mother and child.  He was also known as Baal, Bel, Bul, Hercules, Adonis, and Tammuz.

Semiramis was also known as Diana, the huntress, Astarte, Artemis, Ashtoreth, and Chingmoo in China.  In ancient artworks she is depicted with a tower on her head, which is the tower of Babel.  The transformation of this  Occult pair to be central in the Roman Catholic worship was when the mother and child figure was transposed onto Mary and Jesus.  

Many statues of Semiramis and Nimrod were just renamed Mary and Jesus.  Nimrod was born on 25th December, Jesus was not, so connect the dots.  The Church of Rome became compromised when the Senate had an even number of Christians and Baal worshippers.  It spilled over into the mingled confusion manifested today.

When Nimrod was in Egypt conquering and plundering the land, he got into a deadly battle with Noah's son, Shem.  Shem killed Nimrod and chopped his body into twelve chunks and sent one piece into every land he had conquered to let them know the ogre was dead.  Shem then became known as Hercules because he had defeated the evil hunter.  Shem was still of the people who lived for hundreds of years in their full strength.  Nimrod was born under the new dispensation of 3 score plus 10 year lifespan.

Here lies the original hatred for Shem which has spilled over onto the Jews throughout history.  Rome has dominated, and totally crushed, and cruelly ruled over Israel.  The barbaric crucifixion deaths, over 2 million of them, are a sacrifice to Baal in the form of Tammuz.  His sign was a T the shape of the crossbar on a pole.  These are the legendary names for Nimrod.

Baal was a monster to whom new born babies were sacrificed into his image's giant mouth, into huge burning pyres.  Just before they died they had their heads sprinkled with water and were named.  This is the fore-runner of baby baptism as introduced by the Roman Catholic Church and still a tradition in the mainline churches today.

Nimrod the Hunter spread the worship of Baal over Asia, Europe, Asia Minor and parts of Africa.  God had tried to stop the spread through confusing the languages at the time the tower of Babel was built.  The religion grew along with the wealth, costly garments, golden chalice and altars, all of which are visible in the Vatican, Catholic cathedrals, High Anglican Cathedrals and the watering down of the gospel.

The additions to the Bible, which form a solid part of Catholic teaching are the elevation of Mary to goddess stature, which neither she nor God desired.  She now has Immaculate Conception i.e. born sinless like Jesus, and is called Co-Redeemer with Him.  She ascended alive into Heaven, like Jesus, but hers is called the Assumption, and it is a false assumption.

The prayer beads, straight out of the Occult, are largely prayers to Mary, ten repetitive Hail Mary's followed by one Our Father and one Glory Be.  The teaching that the way of salvation is through Mary who will intercede with her Son for all sinners, is heresy.    The teaching of believers going to Purgatory, a place of fire to be cleansed of sin, is heresy.

The Vatican has made billions of Euros, dollars or gold and jewels from people being urged to buy expensive Masses for the souls in Purgatory to elevate them to Heaven.  It's happening every day!  

It contradicts the Bible in 2 Corinthians 5 v 6 - 9: "Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7  (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8  We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9  Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him."

There is only one other place a soul goes after death and that is the eternal fire of Hell.  No amount of prayer or money can change this destination.  The fires the dying are seeing on their way out are not Purgatory but Hell for following a religion that started out Christian but lost its way.  Dear Catholic people this is a cry from my heart to reach you and give you a chance to know Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, full of love, peace, joy, mercy and forgiveness.

Here is God's Word for anyone trapped in a false religion.  2 Corinthians 6 v 14 - 18: "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."

This deviation started because of Shem and the knowledge that he killed Nimrod, or the god Baal.  It's the hidden root throughout the ages that has never been exposed to the light.  

It has caused many cults and false religions to emerge.  After the confusion of languages one of the countries that got a new religion was India.  Their god Brahma, was originally the God of Abraham, and they started out as strong believers in truth.  It changed over the centuries into a multi-deity form of worship, but the seeds of truth are still around and there have been hundreds of thousands of Indian people who have been saved by Jesus in recent years.

So now we know that anti-semitism stems from an ancient grudge and hatred for Shem, son of Noah, who killed Nimrod, and became Hercules in his place.  It has brought much suffering to the Jews over the centuries.  But those who are worshippers of the one true God will always be persecuted by those who oppose Him.

Father Your Word says that all people will be judged by their attitude to Israel.  She is Your yardstick for true or false belief.  She is Your chosen and the Apple of Your eye.  She has been moulded and disciplined from ancient times by judges, kings, prophets and especially, You.

Truly, what are the Jewish people doing today that deserves such hatred and threats of annihilation?  At worst they are defending themselves against malicious terrorist attacks.  They defeated their attackers in 1967 and annexed the conquered lands, as they have every right to do.  They are blocked by Palestinians from praying and worshipping God on the Temple Mount, their most holy place.  It's wrong!

The last page of the Holy Bible refers to her, long after the church has been raptured.  Revelation 22 v 17: "And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for this new light on an old and continuous problem.  I hope and pray that some, if not all, who unjustly persecute Jews and Christians, will come to know the truth because their eternal lives depend on it.  May Your love shine into every heart and bring us into union with You.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.
