An Eye For An Eye


Matthew 5:38-42 NET  "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'  (39)  But I say to you, do not resist the evildoer. But whoever strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other to him as well.  (40)  And if someone wants to sue you and to take your tunic, give him your coat also.  (41)  And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two.  (42)  Give to the one who asks you, and do not reject the one who wants to borrow from you.

It is said the Old Testament “eye for an eye” law was originally intended to deal with a societal problem by attempting to limit personal revenge. (Refer to Exodus 21:24, Leviticus 24:20, and Deuteronomy 19:21)  It did not allow individuals or families to take revenge, but was a guideline for the court.

Jesus says we should patiently bear such insults and offences, and not resist an evil person who insults us this way. Instead, we trust God to defend us. The central truth of this entire section is that Christians should go beyond what others expect of them. 

It has been commented the purpose is to encourage unbelievers to be attracted to God by His people's actions.  That statement sounds good and it may be a peripheral benefit, but is it the original intent?  The book of Acts contains many references to the persecution of the apostles including:  beatings; prison; stoning; James killed with a sword; Stephan killed by stoning; and others.  In the majority of instances, this persecution added people to the Kingdom of God.  The persecution was almost always initiated by the Jews, the very people the Kingdom was originally presented.  Has anything changed? 

This commandment of Jesus can be difficult for the people of today, even professing Christians.  Fortunately, most people live in a society where the extremes of the commandment are rarely an issue, but for how long?  For the Christians living in the Middle East, China, India, South Asia, and several other places, it is currently a major concern.  The group known as the Illuminati and their subgroups along with the Zionist Jews who seem to control Hollywood, pornography, banks, the USG, Israel, and other infrastructures around the world do not care for any organized religion.  These religions include Christian, Judaism, and Islam.  Yes, it is true, the Zionist leaders dislike actual professing Judaism, and from articles that have been written, professing Judaics aren’t particularly fond of the war-mongering controlling Zionists.  The goal of the new world order is to eliminate all monotheistic religions.

Albert Pike
Albert Pike (1809 – 1891):  Southern Brigadier General during the civil war; Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry (1859-1891); purported organizer of the KKK; and Illuminati member with Adam Weishaupt and Giusseppe Mazzini.

It is presumed that Pike experienced occult conversations with a demon acting as a spirit guide.  Information from some of these conversations was written in a letter to Mazzini.  The letter was supposedly in a glassed frame in a London library.  Prior to WW1 it apparently disappeared from the library and is now being denied that it ever existed.  It was copied by a Canadian Naval officer prior to its disappearance and that is the version available today.  Supposedly written before WW1, it predicted there will be three world wars to prepare the earth for the rule of Lucifer.  (Pike never uses the name Satan).  The first two world wars went as Pike predicted.  We are still waiting for the third one.  Following is the script of WWIII from Pike’s letter:

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."

It is my belief that Satan (demons, Lucifer, fallen Angels, whatever) are inveterate liars and that a half-truth is also a lie.  The serpent told Eve a half-truth when he said “you will not surely die”.  Adam and Eve did not immediately die, but they were expelled from Eden without access to the Tree of Life and they eventually died after leading a hard life.  The demon, Lucifer, or Satan told Pike there would be three world wars.  Two have pasted and the future third war appears imminently possible. 

When presented with a non-Biblical prophecy, supposedly from demons or spirit guides, my first reaction is to compare the demon-prophecy with scripture.  If the prophecy appears to be possible within the framework of Biblical eschatology and the envisioned timeline of the 70th week of Daniel or a Biblically prophetic precursor then it is kept on the table as a reasonable issue.

Note the letter claims the war will be between Israel and Muslims.  This appears to be a real possibility.  Some modern commentators may claim that it will be the Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel 38-39 and others will say it involves Psalms 83 or the Obadiah prophecy concerning Edom.  It is my opinion that WWIII (if it occurs) will be none of these:  but it could possibly provide the means for the appearance and advance of the beast empire of Revelation 13 and 17.

As mentioned above, the goal of the new world order (and predicted by Pike) is to eliminate all deistic monotheism (the belief in one God through reason).  The Albert Pike WWIII would essential eliminate Islam and Judaism if events go as planned.  The contracted effects of a WWIII, according to Pike, would confuse Christians and atheists to the point of disillusion so as to minimize their influence.  This would produce a climate hospitable to a new world religion of idolatry in the form of a Luciferian (or Satanic) mindset.

The primary issue with the above predictive plan is the power it is based on:  which would be the power of Satan and demons.  They may call their “god” Lucifer but the actual power is Satan (and both names may be the same entity).  As said earlier, Satan is a liar and does not tell the complete truth.  Satan may have a variation of the plan.  He apparently does not intend to share the power of the world with anyone:  whether they are Illuminati; CFR; Zionists; Council of 13; or City of London bankers.

The 70th week of Daniel (some call it the 7 years of tribulation) will eventually come to pass.  When it will begin is unknown, but it appears to be quickly approaching (however I have said that before and was wrong).  Just in case you (the reader) are alive when it occurs and you believe that you are a Christian then please remember Matthew 5:38-42.  This will be a period of extreme Christian persecution with effects such as:  detention; execution; destruction of property; theft of property; starvation; and torture.

"Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of my name.  (Matthew 24:9 NET)

"You must watch out for yourselves. You will be handed over to councils and beaten in the synagogues. You will stand before governors and kings because of me, as a witness to them.  (Mark 13:9 NET)

But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear such a name.  (1 Peter 4:16 NET)

Jesus may have left those words for that particular period. 

When they arrest you and hand you over for trial, do not worry about what to speak. But say whatever is given you at that time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.  (Mark 13:11 NET)
