Know Your Pharmakeia

Well, it’s been about three weeks since my last post. The lapse in writing certainly hasn’t come from any lack of things to write about! Amid the chaos that has touched so many places around the world, often with actual physical violence, I and my family are all well. I have simply been very busy and also, it has been very tempting to put aside writing from one day to the next, waiting to see if the dust will settle, and if it does, what kind of world will emerge. Well, I don’t see the dust settling anytime soon and the urge to write is strong, so here I am. It really seems like the last two or three weeks have shown us that there is truly no absurdity that is out of bounds. Nothing is too ridiculous or shameful to have millions of people rally around it. Very dark times. Really, at the rate we are going, anything is possible. I wish I never had to witness such a shameful, shameful thing, as brainwashed White people kneeling before blacks and begging for forgiveness (often while wearing their stupid covid-masks). I wish I never had to witness the whole world lionizing a man who had lived as a bandit and died as a bandit. It is like the Jews begging for Barabbas. But that’s the reality of this degenerate world. Very perverse. God, please hasten salvation to mankind.

My goal, however, is not to write about the riots and the mental illness surrounding them, but to continue writing what I had started a few weeks ago:

“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” (Revelation 18)

The original Greek behind the word “sorceries” is pharmakeia. This is the Greek word from which we get the English word pharmacy. To the pre-modern mind, the line between sorcery and medicine, if there even was one, was but faint; for one, both had a lot to do with the concocting of potions. Secondly, both of these crafts were generally the province of a single specialist, hence, the “witch-doctor”. Moreover, the consumption of pharmaceuticals always entailed altered states of mind and possibly even near-death experiences. While the modern mind feels certain that a bold line now separates sorcery and medicine, I am of the opinion that the line is not a great deal more solid than it was in earlier ages.

Biblical Greek, it is interesting to see, does know of “magic” and “magicians” (mageuo and magos). Simon, the sorcerer of Acts 8, is a practitioner of mageuo, for example. There are about half a dozen instances of magicians (or magoi) in the NT. Thus, in theory, the Word of God could have warned us about the sorcery-mageuo of “Babylon“, but instead chose to warn us about her sorcery-pharmakeia. I definitely think there is something to that. In fact, I think the significance is undeniable, especially in light of the current corona deception.

I am hardly the first person to write a blog article about the curious appearance of pharmakeia in the text of the Apocalypse. Some internet commentators (the “extremists”) have endeavored to show that all medicine is, by virtue of this verse, at odds with the will of God and therefore inappropriate for Christians; referencing also Galatians 5:20. Others, in turn, (the “moderates”) have countered by insisting that the extremists are reading an overly specific significance into the term’s ancient meaning. As you study pharmakeia for yourself, be aware of these two camps. I get what the moderates are saying and I think some extremists may indeed take too sharp a position, for we find no clear condemnation of general medicine anywhere in the Gospels or the Epistles. Jesus healed many people who, the text tells us, had long tried to gain recovery through the medicines of the times. Nowhere does He rebuke them for having tried medicines. In fact, Jesus even compares Himself to a doctor that came to heal those sick of sin. Luke also was a “beloved physician”. I will suggest that an even greater proof of the (general) permission that Christians have to take medicines is the fact that for two millennia the Church’s Magisterium has allowed it and has only forbidden specific medicines on specific grounds.

On the other hand, I think it is completely possible for Revelation-18-pharmakeia moderates to be too dismissive of the implication of this verse. Ask yourself, How is the Whore of Babylon going to deceive all the nations? Shall it be through a jew doing magic tricks? Is that the pharmakeia that will beguile everybody? David Copperfield? . . . Or will the pharmakeia be the combined effect of a thousand advances in pharmaceuticals, which step by step, brain cell by brain cell, have burned out the intellectual and moral core of the world?

The Church has consistently condemned the use of mind-altering street drugs as well as chemical contraception and abortifacients. Indeed, these very categories of pharmakeia are exactly the things which demoralized the Boomer generation and ushered in the hell-world we have today. I repeat: Boomers and their “mind-opening” drugs, Boomers and their birth-control pills and abortion pills — this is a TREMENDOUS part of the groundwork of the rapid social degradation of the last 60 years. We would not be in this bad of a situation without pharmakeia — not by a very long shot. Of course, we must also include here the many legal anti-depressants, pain-killers, and anti-ADHD medications that have been corrupting an ever greater portion of the population. We should also include the drug cocktails that make sex-changes “possible”. The more you look, the more you see pharmakeia as the poison which sickens the world and at the same time the glue that holds the sick, broken pieces together.

For those readers already familiar with the identification of the Whore of Babylon which I maintain on this blog, namely, that it is to be understood as Jerusalem, and as such, represents the spiritual, military, and political brain of the jewish nation, there may be some questions as to whether the pieces fit. Is there, after all, any peculiar connection between the jewish elite and pharmakeia? Oh, yes.

The birth-control pill was not only invented by the jew Gregory Pincus, but apparently, even the “co-inventor” status of lapsed Catholic John Rock was a carefully crafted ploy to distract attention from the jewishness of the whole affair — a common tactic of theirs well documented by Kevin MacDonald. Then you’ve got Israel-based Teva Pharmaceuticals, the WORLD’S LARGEST PRODUCER of generic drugs. The Jews are really big into drug production. Ultra shabbos-goy Ted Cruz is even suggesting that America ought to dump China get all of its drugs from Israel, our greatest ally. Interestingly, Israel is apparently leading the way in the development of vaccines and other treatments for covid-19.

We also, can’t forget the infamous Sackler family, the jewish owners of Purdue Pharma who have gotten into big trouble with the feds lately for pushing over-prescriptions on people through a kick-back scheme they set up with doctors. They sure like to get people drugged up, those jews… And this is not a new development. Like the Sackler family, the jewish Sassoon family, often called the “Rothschilds of the East” made a massive fortune pushing opium on the Chinese in the 19th century. The Chinese government eventually resorted to armed conflict with the British (the Sassoons operated as British subjects) in order to resist their country being massively demoralized by drug abuse. This is known today as the Opium Wars.

People generally don’t remember the Opium Wars or think much about the case with Purdue Pharma. Most people don’t think it’s all that big of a deal that so many people use drugs — legal or illegal — to get by day to day and I don’t see anybody with any power standing up to do anything about it. So, it looks like we are on track to just have more and more drugs pushed on us until God destroys satan and his children. All you can do is look out for your family and those who are close to you. Stay vigilant against pharmakeia. Obviously, any upcoming concoctions meant to treat this “deadly” coronavirus should be rejected no matter what. Even if you are not one to see this coronavirus situation as a matter of eschatological importance, you must realize that these governments and pharmaceutical firms have showed a very wicked hand, and it would be tragically foolish now to have any belief in their good intentions or in their ability to keep you unharmed from their “helpful” interventions. Seriously, do not — DO NOT — submit to any corona vaccines or other corona treatments. I’m not claiming right now that a corona vaccine would necessarily be the mark of the beast, but we can see that it is at least very similar in nature, given all the talk about vaccine passports, etc. The idea that the system is promoting is that only people who have proof of immunity can resume the full gamut of normal life, and this includes, in their words, the emergence of holographic tattoos or tracking chips embedded in each person.

To summarize: I don’t believe doctors or medicine are intrinsically evil, but the current situation has clearly been about much more than simple medicine. At best, they see you as a cash cow, at worst, they see you as part of the masses that they want to exercise a whole new level of domination over. You need to firmly resolve that you will not comply, that you will sooner be put to death than to be put to the needle.

Before closing, I want to touch upon another element of our text in Revelation 18, namely the part where the punishing angel says that a number of aspects of life in the “Great City” will never exist again — “with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee . . .”

You see, almost no goys realize what this is referring to. But I, with my personal experience in the dark bowels of Orthodox Judaism, will make it clear. This is a reference to a song called “Od Yishama” (hebrew: “There shall yet be heard”) — a standard song sung at every wedding and other celebration of significant character (called simchot).

 

The reason this song is sung at weddings and other significant celebrations is because the text is very joyous and points to the greatest joy; the reign of the Messiah in Jerusalem and the ultimate salvation of the Jews and the redemption of the whole world. Interestingly, as many of you are aware, the Old Testament often uses the symbolism of a wedding to depict the the ultimate Redemption and the union of God and His people in perfect and eternal happiness. The text of the song is derived from the Book of Jeremiah, specifically 33:10,11 —

“Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast, the voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.”

I recommend you get your Bible, as we need to unpack a couple things in order to understand this text. First, you might know that Jeremiah was a prophet of doom par excellence. While most of the OT prophets do utter a fair share of dire warnings to the children of Israel, probably none can match Jeremiah for breadth of depth of ominous forecasts. Interestingly, this passage comes as a rare message of encouragement in the overall background of doom and this motif of singing brides and singing bridegrooms actually appears three other times in Jeremiah once at 7:34 and once at 16:9 and once at 25:10. All three of these are doom-passages and talk about God’s plan to punish the inhabitants of Jerusalem by taking away the voice of mirth, and the voices of the bride and bridegroom, etc, and leaving the city desolate. It is only 33:10 that uses the motif in a positive way. Why the difference?

The answer is that the first three passages, the doom passages, all refer to the same event, namely the conquest of the land of Judah by Nebuchadnezzar (25:9). The fourth instance, in chapter 33, describes God’s plan to restore the Land of Judah (since it will have been made desolate by Nebuchadnezzar’s army). There will again be heard the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, the voice of the bride, etc. However, there is an important element to this prophecy. God’s plan goes far beyond the rebuilding and revitalizing of Jerusalem, we read further on the chapter 33 that the city is restored specifically to be the royal place from which the Messiah shall reign —

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.” (verses 14-16)

In other words, God was promising to revive Jerusalem, yes, but not merely so that the Jews could enjoy themselves. The Jews needed to understand that this was an act of magnanimity on God’s part, that the merciful Father in Heaven was giving them another chance and this chance was inextricably bound up in welcoming the Savior into the world and recognizing Him as King and humbly serving Him. It is clear to us, especially in our present day, that there is no sense to any nation singing and dancing and celebrating anything if it does not first have a right standing before God, who is the source of all true joy.

But, we are about 2000 years after the King entered the royal city toward which God granted such special clemency, and we know what happened. In the words of Christ Himself, which He spoke in a parable —

“Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him. But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid. And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.” (Luke 20)

The Jews — the majority anyways — rejected and murdered the Messiah. They had an encounter with the Divine Logos and were ground to powder. In spite of myriad signs and wonders, including the veil of the temple being torn, the miracles of the Apostles, the sacking of Jerusalem by Titus, etc, the ranking Jews, rich in chutzpah, continued their program of Judaism and, as though that were a little thing, crafted all kinds of the most blasphemous lore about Jesus Christ and generally made a great deal of their identity all about being not-Christians. Thus they go on through history as if they did not make the greatest error, as if they did not mistake their destiny in the most tragic way possible. The Bridegroom came to Jerusalem, His bride, and was murdered.

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.” (Revelation 18:7)

Thus, it becomes very clear why Revelation 18 pronounces doom upon the Harlot in the terms that it does, what with the taking away of the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride, the voice of mirth, the light of the candle, etc. It is saying that there is no more chance for her, ever again. Jerusalem, and all that it stands for, to wit, the capital of the Jews and their religion, is eternally doomed. They can sing and dance all they want, but it won’t change the judgment.

Interestingly, this is why St John saw a New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven —

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” (Revelation 21)

Thus, all of God’s promises throughout the OT about God and His people dwelling together forever in Jerusalem are fulfilled, albeit in a New Jerusalem, for the original Jerusalem was clearly irredeemable, condemned, and expressly replaced. This would be good to bring up with your judeo-“christian” friends, “Say, Pastor Mack, you make such a big deal about Jews and Jerusalem, well, right here it says God is going to destroy Jerusalem and replace it with a new one of His own making. What do you make of that?”

You see, here’s the deal; the most basic meaning of “antichrist” is simply that which is opposed to or in place of Christ. That’s the basic meaning of the Greek “anti”. True, there are additional, incidental details of antichrist, but the essential meaning is simply that which opposes or (attempts to) replace Christ. Obviously, we could identify the Jews by this alone, and indeed, this is how they identify themselves, ignorant that they paint themselves with the blackest of all marks for those who know the Scriptures.

Stay off of drugs, guys, including “christian” zionism. The End is here.
