Israel’s decision to remove metal detectors from Al-Aqsa Mosque that offended Muslims is “a step in the right direction, but it is not enough”, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Wednesday. This reveals that no matter what, God’s enemies will never stop their insatiable desire to rule over Jerusalem. Now Erdogan’s government is also demanding Berlin to give up the Altar of Pergamum (Altar of Zeus) as the Turkish Anadolu Agency reported today.
So will Erdogan’s government succeed again and should Germany give back the Altar of Zeus to Turkey?
The typical westerner today would rather fight over Zeus, the very symbol of Satan, more than to fight over Jerusalem.
But these days to say that God hates all evil, including paganism would get you equated with Muslims.
The West today laments more over the Taliban destroying the statue of Buddha in Bamyan Afghanistan and weeps over the pagan ruins of Palmyra in Syria when ISIS destroyed it, while they say zip about the infestation of neopaganism and homosexuality throughout the world. Today, the transvestite has more rights and the world demands they join the military. Today the world does not mind plunging us into old Greek practices where sodomy and paganism was the norm in the military.
Today even France brings us what might be the 21st Century capper. Two weeks ago the newly crowned French President Emmanuel Macron just said he will rule like the Roman god Jupiter (Zeus) and he was not joking. Mr. Macron is going godlike, comparing himself not only to the Roman Jupiter, but, because Jupiter is just a renaming of the original Greek god of gods, Zeus.
“Macron himself has said he plans a “Jupiterian” presidency – as a remote, dignified figure, like the Roman god of gods, who weighs his rare pronouncements carefully.”
And while the West bickers, the other self-proclaimed god, Erdoğan, gets what he demands. Even stubborn Israel finally capitulated over the ‘metal detectors’ and removed them from the Temple Mount. Now Turkey demands Israel remove the security cameras as well. The demands never end and the world capitulates giving up on Jerusalem and holding tighter to Zeus. Yet only when misery hits hard, that churches are filled with weeping hypocrites.
Erdoğan still bickered even more: “Israel is attempting to damage the Islamic character of Jerusalem with new practices every day by taking advantage of the current weakness of Muslims,” Erdoğan said during an event to discuss higher education in the Islamic world at the presidential complex in Ankara.
But its not only Jerusalem that is on Erdoğan’s top agendas. Yesterday, the Turkish Parliament began a process to recover the Altar of Zeus (Pergamon Altar) which many Christians view as the “seat of Antichrist”.
“Four political parties have demanded a parliamentary committee to investigate into the Zeus issue,” Bulent Turan of the ruling Justice and Development Party said which was also announced by Turkey’s Anadolu Agency.
The ancient Altar of Zeus and Pergamon city near the western province of Izmir had been evacuated to Germany. They are exhibited in Pergamon Museum in Berlin.
And its not as if Turkey has no temple to house this altar; last year the Hurriet Daily News stated “The Zeus Lepsynos Temple from the 2nd century B.C. will be revived to regain its former glory, as archaeological excavations continue in the ancient city of Euromos in the western province of Muğla’s Milas district.”
Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University Archaeology Department academic said they were working hard to best promote the Zeus Temple after quality restoration work.
So why the focus on Zeus?
What we observe daily as Christians is lamentable; the world is heading towards absolute evil where Zeus and even Odin worship is growing. Today “Iceland has seen a dramatic increase in the followers of its indigenous pagan movement in recent years, making Odin worshippers the country’s fastest-growing religion” the BBC announced. The total of Icelanders who revere Odin, Thor and the Goddess Freyja has leapt 50% since 2014. 50% in only three years should alarm us.
And in Asia Minor where sixteen centuries ago, Christianity finally came to that region, sweeping away all pagan religions, yet today it is reverting backwards. While Turkey is 99 percent Muslim and Christians assume that Greece is 98 percent Orthodox Christians, the ugly truth is that Greece has a growing number of Greeks who oppose Christianity in favor of Zeus with alarming numbers reaching to hundreds of thousands.
In 2007, former advertising executive Doreta Peppa managed to do something no one had done for 1,600 years. Dressed in flowing robes and carrying a couple of white doves, she performed a pagan ceremony at the Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus. As a representative of Ellinais—an organization dedicated to reviving ancient Greek forms of worship—she became the first priestess to hold such a ceremony since the days of the Christian Roman Empire. Soon the world will see Asia Minor like a dog going back to its vomit.
Outraged at this flagrant breach of Greek law, the Orthodox Church objected and the liberal media (of course) went on the attack against the Orthodox Church. In the seven years since Peppa’s illegal ceremony, opinion has shifted dramatically. Today, hundreds of thousands of Greeks from all walks of life openly worship the old Gods. Leftist academics, right wing Greek nationalists, new age types, and environmentalists all gather under the Hellenistic banner. Today paganism has become legal in Greece when it was outlawed a few years ago.
Across the country, the group holds ceremonies and organizes all-night revelries to the glory of Zeus. They even consider Greece to be under Christian occupation and champion a return to the ancient traditions.
Hellenization began in 1996 spearheaded by the Supreme Council of Ethnic Hellenes, a founding member of the European Congress of Ethnic Religions. The movement aims to unseat the influence of the Orthodox Christian church and return Greece to ancient Greek philosophies, ideals, and pagan religion.
The reason that such movements grow is simple, the over focus on race, heritage and ethnicity.
“At the core of the movement is the restoration of a lost cultural identity,” said Angelo Nasios in Patheos Pagan. “Reminding the Greek people what their authentic self is. For centuries, the Greek people have been subjugated to Orthodox Christianity, which has been against Hellenism from the beginning.”
Jesus not only equates Zeus (or Jupiter) with Satan, but he stated that Satan’s ‘throne’, or spiritual base, was geographically located in Asia Minor. It is for this reason that lucifer must establish a spiritual stronghold and headquarters making Asia Minor the significant role in the Last-Days Antichrist Empire.
And now Erdoğan is honing in on Jerusalem getting this fallen world closer to judgment day.
“Those who criticize our country whenever possible suddenly become silent when the issue is Palestine, Jerusalem, or Muslims’ rights or laws,” president Erdoğan said.
“We must not close the door of Al-Aqsa against Muslims of the world” insisted Erdoğan.
But opening Jerusalem for all Muslims is done to initiate a fervor and pilgrimage of Muslims. This is the “flood” towards Jerusalem. The “flood” against Jew and Christian is not only coming from the Muslim world but from many other directions where antisemitism is growing leaps and bounds even within Christendom.
The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has intervened in the continuing crisis surrounding the Jerusalem holy sites by accusing Israel of undermining the city’s “Islamic character”, in comments likely to further inflame tensions amongst Muslim states.
Erdoğan’s intervention looks set to raise the temperature again, with Israel’s foreign ministry accusing Turkey of behaving as though the Ottoman empire still existed.
Emmanuel Nahshon, Israel’s Foreign Ministry spokesman responded by saying that the Turkish president’s words were “delusional” and “distorted.”
“The days of the Ottoman Empire are over,” Nahshon said.
But Nahshon is naive. He does not read his Bible. The Jesus-style question that will challenge all, Muslim, pagan, leftist, alt-right neo-Nazis, liberal Christians and liberal Jews is this: how is it that only one God predicted that the Ottomans are returning?
So what are we to expect here, Turkey or Greece to build a gigantic structure as it was in the 2nd century B.C. as a temple dedicated to Zeus?
What we need to understand is that certain continuity exists between the various gods of beast empires. For instance, in ancient Egypt they worshipped Ra, the Sun god. In Babylon, there was Murdock, the Sun god and Sin, the moon god (or goddess). The Greeks worshipped many gods, but viewed Zeus—the god of the sky and thunder—as the king over all of the other astral deities. Later, the Romans also worshipped Zeus under the name Jupiter. There is significant evidence to view the Allah of the Muslims as the Arab counterpart to Baal, Sin, Zeus, or Jupiter. In pre-Islamic times, Allah-worship, as well as the worship of Baal, were both astral religions in the sense that they involved the worship of the sun, the moon, and the stars.
Yet strangely, prophecy is being fulfilled and today the worship of Zeus and Odin is becoming a creeping reality.
But when Jesus spoke of Pergamum He did not refer to the Pergamum Altar as the throne of Zeus, but rather as the throne of Satan. We can assume that Jesus made this point for a reason: the world will ultimately worship Lucifer. While the various beast empires worshipped an assortment of gods under different names, Jesus actually referred to Zeus—the chief god of the ruling beast empire—as Satan. Zeus was Satan dressed in a Greek toga. This point is crucial as we attempt to understand the nature of the work of Satan on the earth in the Last-Days. We at Shoebat.com have already identified the re-emerging Islamic Empire as the final Beast Empire. We may also now identify Allah as Satan. Satan has no limits or borders he has to abide by when it comes to deception. Today many ‘Christians’ follow Satan while they make-believe that they follow the God of the Bible and their numbers grow leaps and bounds.
Not only does Jesus equate Zeus (or Jupiter) with Satan, but he also states that Satan’s “throne”, or spiritual base, was geographically located in Turkey. As unusual as this may sound, Satan may actually establish a geographical stronghold or a spiritual capital of sorts. This is not surprising. As late as the 19th century, this throne remained in Turkey, also the location of the capital of the Ottoman Empire. Beyond this, Pergamum was relatively close to Ionia (roughly one hundred miles north) which is also mentioned in Zechariah 9 where Christ will combat it in His Second Coming. All factors considered, this passage in Revelation 1, by naming Turkey as the location of Satan’s throne, also confirms Turkey’s significant role in the Last-Days Antichrist Empire.
In two campaigns, starting in 1879, Satan’s throne, or the Pergamum Altar, as it is now called, was excavated by a German archeological team. The altar was shipped out of the Ottoman Empire from the original location and was reconstructed in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin in the 19th century. Today, the altar still sits in Berlin where it can be seen alongside other monumental structures such as the Ishtar Gate from Babylon.
Erdoğan’s interest in the altar should not be strange but revealing. In 1934, Adolph Hitler became the dictator of Germany. Hitler ordered construction of the Tribune at Zeppelin Field in Nuremberg specifically for the purpose of his Nazi rallies. Several volumes have been written detailing the deeply occultist nature of the Nazi regime. Not surprisingly, then the Nazi architect of the Zeppelintribune, Albert Speer, actually used the Pergamum Altar as the model for what essentially became the premier Nazi pulpit. The Fuhrer’s podium was located in the middle of the replica of the Pergamum Altar. In light of Hitler’s brazen anti-Semitic spirit, and the horrors of the holocaust that accompanied his career, one can only conclude that Hitler did indeed conjure up a measure of that satanic spirit that was present in Pergamum.
Today an anti-Semitic dark spirit is rising and our detractors are growing. Today it has become the norm to belabor slogans of racism and ultra-nationalism all hidden in the name of ethnic and national pride. To these we say: don’t kid yourselves the same dark anti-Semitic spirit that seems to have followed this ancient satanic altar to Germany, will now also find a welcome home in Turkey which is already bickering over Jerusalem.
Satan is plunging the world back to pagan roots. Therefore, we must strive through Christ to return Christendom to its Christian glory. God will have a day of reckoning when He will finally end all evil by completely destroying the wicked. In the meanwhile, protect your children by keeping them distant from this world and the underworld. Infuse in them what the Church fathers did before us: Christian zeal and the love for Christ the King, even if it costs them martyrdom. Teach them not to fear death, but to fear God. Tell them that no one can take their soul for their souls belong to Christ.
