A vassal king is a king who owes allegiance to another, more powerful king or emperor. A vassal kingdom is a kingdom whose ruler has pledged subservient loyalty to another. When people think of vassals, they think of the feudal system in medieval Europe. However, the concept originated much earlier.
Lamentations 1:1: How lonely sits the city (Jerusalem)
That was full of people!
How like a widow is she,
Who was great among the nations!
The princess among the provinces
Has become a tributary (serfdom)!
In the Bible, we find the term “vassal” or “tributary” in Lamentations 1:1. The word “tributary” is used to describe the sad state of Jerusalem after its fall to the Babylonians.
BLESSINGS AND CURSES
God gave the land of Israel (Promised Land) to the sons of Jacob; however, their ownership of the land was contingent on their obedience to the Mosaic Covenant. In the book of Deuteronomy, chapters 26-28, Moses laid it all out very clearly. God would richly bless Israel if they followed HIS COMMANDMENTS (YHWH), and He would curse them if they worshipped idols and followed other “gods”.
Deuteronomy 28:31: Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will not eat of it; your donkey will be snatched away from you, and will not be restored to you; your sheep will be given to your enemies, and you will have no one to save you. 32 Your sons and your daughters will be given to another people, while your eyes look on and long for them constantly; but there will be nothing you can do. 33 A people whom you do not know will eat the produce of your ground and every product of your labor, and you will never be anything but oppressed and mistreated continually.
ANCIENT ISRAEL – A VASSAL NATION
In the period just before the fall of Samaria in 722 BC, Kings Menahem and Hoshea of Israel were forced to acknowledge the sovereignty of Assyria.
In fact, most of the kings of Judah from the time of Ahaz to the fall of Jerusalem in 586 b.c. were vassals first of Assyria and then, after its fall, of Babylon. Except for the brief period of Maccabean rule, the whole subsequent history of the Jews was one of vassalage—to Egypt, Syria, and the Romans. Vassal kings had a good deal of wealth and dignity, but they had to pay tribute to the powers to whom they were subservient, and they could stay in office only as long as they were permitted by their overlords.
Because a vassal king was subservient to a more powerful king/kingdom, they were required to bow to the will of their overlord if they wanted to remain in power. FREEDOM was an ILLUSION in this feudal type of system.
The church often teaches that the “blessings and curses” were only for ancient Israel as part of the Mosaic Covenant. They tell us that we Christians are under a NEW COVENANT, so “blessings and curses” do not apply to us. While it is true that Christians are under a New Covenant, which is a Covenant of Grace for each individual that saves us from ETERNAL DEATH, it is also true that God can and DOES CORRECT the Christian for trampling down the blood of Christ.
Hebrews 10:28: Anyone who has ignored the Law of Moses is put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severe punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? ? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Why is it important for us to understand the concept of a “vassal king”?
Because what was will be again, there is nothing new under the sun. We are watching the nations of the world (particularly the Western Christian nations) quickly become vassal states of the New World Order.
This means that the leaders or vassal kings of these nations must BOW to the will of their overlords, or they will not remain in power. This also means that the nations whom they rule are not actually free nations. There is now only the ILLUSION of freedom.
Formally, the system of “serfdom” officially ended in 1789; however, it still exists under the guise of “global initiatives”. The Bible speaks of man’s final kingdom that comes together just prior to the return of Jesus Christ. This final kingdom will be a conglomeration of ten nations or regions that come together to form a single ruling entity that will reign over the entire world.
Revelation 17:12; “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
Revelation 17 tells us who is heading up this powerful end-time kingdom – THE BEAST. The beast is another name for the antichrist, the man who will rule the world under the power and authority of Satan. 😈The enemy’s dark kingdom has a hierarchical structure in which the antichrist is the “head” whose job is to implement Satan’s will on this planet.
The ten “kings without a kingdom” are the ten rulers who take council with the beast and assist with Satan’s dark plans. These ten kings have no kingdom, so they are not rulers / Presidents/Prime Ministers or kings that we would likely recognize. Instead, they work behind the scenes as puppet masters 🎭ruling over the vassal kings whom they have appointed over the nations. These ten powerful “kings” without a kingdom could be bankers, tech giants, pharmaceutical giants, etc. You can rest assured they are the EXTREMELY WEALTHY powerbrokers of the world.
ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE
While the world watches with great anticipation to see who will win the “elections” in various nations such as the United States, Brazil, Sweden, Israel, Italy and others…. for the most part, the ten kings have already determined who will win these elections.
Sadly, the majority of western nations are now vassal states of the New World Order (man’s final kingdom). The whole election process is a great theater and ALL the world is the stage. 🎭. There is a reason that DOMINION voting systems are being used. In the Garden of Eden, mankind transferred DOMINION of the world to Satan.
many of the elections are not real. This was proven in 2020 in the United States. By the global response to American President Donald Trump, it is obvious that he was NOT part of their “plan”. Clearly God intervened in the 2016 US “election” for His purposes, perhaps to give the nation of America the time to repent.
Luke 13:6: And He (Jesus) began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. 7 And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Look! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’
8 But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, leave it alone for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; 9 and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.’” (tfj: Donald Trump was President for 4 years).
The majority of candidates running for office are vassal “kings” who pay tribute to the New World Order. On the outside, they SAY the right words, they speak of freedom and sovereignty of their own nation, but behind the scenes, they are implementing POLICIES that are dictated TO THEM by the global antichrist kingdom.
Why IS GOD ALLOWING THIS?
The Western Judeo-Christian world has ABANDONED their first love (Jesus Christ) ✝️ and turned to “other lovers (idolatry). Just like ancient Israel, Western nations such as those in Europe, North America (USA/CANADA), Australia, and others have turned to baal worship.
Who is baal? Baal was the name of the supreme “god” worshiped in ancient Canaan and Phoenicia. Baal was a “god” of prosperity. He was a “god” of sensuality and sexual promiscuity. Many people think that ancient mythological “gods” were only fairytales, and not real. The truth is, the SPIRITS behind those ancient “gods” are VERY REAL and they are still alive and well today. These are the “Baalim” (many “baals” of the Old Testament) who are actually FALLEN ANGELS AND Demons masquerading as gods.
All idolatry is ultimately devil😈worship.
In artistic depictions and archeological finds, Baal took the shape of a bull or ram and had associations with fertility.
You might be thinking, I don’t know anybody who worships “Baal”. Most people today would not KNOWINGLY worship baal (Satan). However, Baal worship in our modern society is VERY POPULAR, even if it isn’t “named” as such. Many, many people are WORSHIPPING Baal through DECEPTION. Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ TOLD US that there would be GREAT DECEPTION in the last days so slick, so popular that it would deceive even the very ELECT if that were possible (Matthew 24:24). As it turns out, this deception has found a home in many Christian churches, in Jewish Synagogues, in Islamic masques, in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is the prophesied One World Religion.
Abortion (child sacrifice) sexual immorality (LGBTIQQ community), wealth/entitlement and the “selfie/ME” generation, humanity as nothing more than a “beast” (evolution) are all antichrist values (woke / progressive values).
These are the same values that were revered by ancient Baal worshippers. Even Climate Change is a part of this antichrist religion that seeks to worship the CREATION rather than the CREATOR.
Two thousand years ago Christianity ✝️pushed these licentious values into the shadows. However, in these last days, they are COMING OUT of the shadows and are here in our face. Billions of people around the globe are embracing these values, believing themselves to be “modern”, “woke”, “cool”, or “inclusive“…. but they are DECEIVED. 🧑🏻🦯
You will hear New World Order vassals and “influencers” often using the phrase “Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity”. On the surface this sounds “good”, but underneath, they are promoting open borders (global governance/tower of Babel), gender confusion, homosexuality, abortion (child sacrifice) and Marxism, all antichrist values, the same values revered by ancient baal worshippers.
Anybody with eyes to SEE😎will UNDERSTAND what is happening…...Humanity is being GROOMED by the antichrist😈
Ephesians 5:5: For this you know with certainty, that no sexually immoral or impure or greedy person, which amounts to an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
6 See that no one deceives 🤥you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partners with them;
John 14:6: Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me. ✝️
MODERN BAAL WORSHIP
THE GOLDEN CALF 🐂
Exodus 32: 3 So all the people tore off the gold rings which were in their ears and brought them to Aaron. 4 Then he took the gold from their hands, and fashioned it with an engraving tool and made it into a cast metal calf; 🐂and they said, “This is your god, Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.” 😱
A massive, fuming bull with red eyes is carried into the stadium by women pulling chains.
Supposedly this bull ceremony was supposed to represent slave labor of women in the 19th century. However, it is clear that this bull scene represents much more than a worker strike.
When the women drop the chains, the bull gets angry and starts trampling around as everyone cowers in fear.
Then, for several awkward minutes, people gather around the bull to worship it. There are no other words to describe what is happening. The word “Worship” means to submit or BOW DOWN.
The name Lucifer means “light bearer” and these people are literally “bearing light” to honor the bull.
This is all Luciferian symbolism. Lucifer (an angel) was the name the adversary (Satan – fallen angel) before he FELL (sinned).
Look at these people PROSTRATING themselves to the bull. This is highly symbolic and proof that the bull represents more than a worker strike (or whatever). The definition of “to prostrate” is to be stretched out with face on the ground in adoration or submission.
Here is another image of people prostrating themselves to a bull-like figure. His name: Baal.
The REBUILT TOWER OF BABEL was also present at the 2022 Commonwealth games.
Revelation 17:3: And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. (tfj: The woman is MYSTERY BABYLON (NEW WORLD ORDER), and the Ten horns represent the ten “kings” without a kingdom who are RULING the NEW WORLD ORDER along WITH the ANTICHRIST).
Baal worship is nothing new. It has been around for millennia. However, it has been operating in the shadows for the past 2000 years as Christianity took CENTER STAGE. Today, baal worship is out in the open, worn LOUDLY and PROUDLY 🏳️🌈 repackaged under a different name.
“WOKE / INCLUSION / PROGRESSIVE values (“social justice”)”.
Numbers 25:1: “While Israel was staying in Shittim, the men began to indulge in sexual immorality with Moabite women, who invited them to the sacrifices to their gods. The people ate and bowed down before these gods. So Israel joined in worshiping the Baal of Peor. And the Lord’s anger burned against them.
In the New Testament, Jesus calls Satan Beelzebub (Baʿal Zebub), forever associating Baal with Satan😈 and the “prince of demons”.
As Christianity spread across the Mediterranean and around the globe, Baal BECAME THE FACE OF EVIL. 😈 THE BLINDERS CAME OFF AS THE Gospel of Jesus Christ spread. People began to SEE the TRUTH. ✝️
But we have REGRESSED. People are now being raised to believe that they are “enlightened”, and that Christianity is some old, stodgy “religion’ for the ignorant.
1 Timothy 6:20: Timothy, protect what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly, empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”— 21 which some have professed and thereby have gone astray from the faith
POST CHRISTIAN/ANTICHRIST WORLD
Many people today are saying that we live in a “postChristian world“. Postchristianity is defined as the situation in which Christianity is no longer the dominant “religion” of a society which has gradually assumed values, culture, and worldviews that are not Christian.
A world that is no longer Christian is not simply “post Christian”, it is ANTICHRIST. Mankind was created to worship SOMETHING. If we refuse to worship our Creator (YHWH/JESUS CHRIST/HOLY SPIRIT) we WILL worship something else. And in sneaks Baal (satan). To many, he (SATAN) is the “cool kid on the block”. 😈
- He is the “kid” who not only allows sexual sins, but he also encourages them. (LGBTIQQ agenda) 🏳️🌈
- He is the “kid” who “respects pronouns” (encouraging mental illness and confusion)
- He is the “kid” who says, “You be you”, do as thou wilt.
- He is the “kid” who says, “live your best life, get all YOU can out of life NOW because it’s all about YOU”. 🪞
- He is the “kid” who encourages drugs, alcohol and new age practices (WITCHCRAFT.) 🧙🏻
- Baal is the “god” of “prosperity and wealth”. 💰💰💰 Baal was popular in the days of ancient Israel, and he is popular now, whether people realize it or not!
For nearly two thousand years, Baal went underground, into the shadows, waiting for “his time” to return. Baal took this time to regroup, waiting for the time when he would launch his final campaign for world domination. The 20th century was “the time” he would begin to re-emerge from the shadows. Fiat money, technology, mass media, ENTERTAINMENT, gave him his “in”. He began to worm his way back into society, keeping Christian parents busy, making sure each generation had less and less faith. He even wormed his way into the Church.
JUDGEMENT IS HERE
When ancient Israel turned to IDOLATRY (baal worship), God allowed them to be taken over by more powerful nations. Initially, these powerful nations (Egypt, Assyria, Babylon) set up vassal kings in Israel to pay them tribute. Wicked kings are the RESULT of a nation filled with wicked people.
In Hebrew, the word wicked (rasha) is the antonym of the word righteous (tsadiyq). The Hebrew word “rasha” (wicked) means to “depart” as in “departing from God’s ways“.
|For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. (Psalm 18:21 RSV)|
Ultimately, both Israel and Judah were torn apart, shredded, and completely destroyed, the bulk of their inhabitants either killed, enslaved, or exiled into other nations.
At this time, the New World Order, also known as the beast kingdom in the Bible, has risen. The New World Order is NOT a “conspiracy theory” or “disinformation”. This is what the Propaganda media will tell you and sadly, many people BELIEVE them because they get “their truth” from the fake media and not from the Word of God! The New World Order IS BIBLICAL, although it is not called by that name in the Bible. The New World Order worships Baal because it gets its POWER and AUTHORITY from the devil. 😈
The New World Order is still working behind the scenes, secretly installing and controlling its vassal kings. However, soon it has a plan to rise to the forefront, no longer working in the shadows. It loves the symbol of the phoenix who rises from the ashes.
Currently, most Western nations have been subjugated by the New World Order. The final judgement, the Great Tribulation, is a time of war and destruction…and the rising of a “new kingdom”. The Bible tells us that God will allow the enemy to destroy the nations (WWIII) and bring their New World Order to the forefront for the final three and a half years. To the unbelieving, the New World Order will INITIALLY seem like an answer to prayer because it will appear to bring peace to a war-torn world. But believe me, it will be a DYSTOPIAN NIGHTMARE.
WHAT ABOUT GOD FEARING PEOPLE?
You may be wondering…what about God fearing people? Why would God (YHWH) allow those who have not bowed the knee to baal, to suffer the same fate as the wicked? God’s ways are not our ways, His ways are Higher. There were people in ancient Israel who did not bow the knee to Baal. Some of them did die with the rabble; however, they are not lost – they are in the Kingdom of Heaven. Others, like Daniel and Jeremiah – God protected. Still, even Daniel and Jeremiah did eventually die and are also in the Kingdom of Heaven.
We have to TRUST that God can (and will) protect us through the storms.
God does have a divine rescue plan for His people to rescue us from the clutches of the enemy – THE RESURRECTION/RAPTURE. No man knows the day or the hour…. but by the looks of the world, it has to be SOON.
All we can say is “Be ready, for jesus comes at a time that we “think not”!
