Emperor Trump’s Golden Eagle

Trump, The King David of Evangelical Jews, wants his chosen ones to carry a RED STATE CARD with the image of a golden eagle. Never before in the history of any Democracy, has an ex-president made an attempt to designate True American Patriots, from Treacherous Americans, employing his personal official standard, in this case A GOLDEN EAGLE!

There was no call for King Herod to massacre the innocent new born children in order to murder the Messiah. He did burn many Jewish leaders alive for approving the cutting down of the Roman eagle that he allowed to be put on the gate of God’s temple, thus breaking the Commandment about graven images.

The Republican Emperor tried to weaponize the Department of Justice and have our Laws declare him THE WINNER, when he knew he was THE LOSER! This eagle is a symbol of THE INSURRECTIONISTS who I want to own the Emperor’s card that will come WITH A ID NUMBER – THE MARK OF THE BEAST – so God can better take hold of the weeds that have grown high amongst the golden sheaves of wheat – and cast them into the fire. Add up the numbers you see on these cards.

Come get your cards – your loyal ones! Be – more than you can be!

The sequence of numbers on these cards is COUNTING. It is forbidden to count Jews. David did this and caused a plague. The Governor of Florida is being called ‘The Pied Piper of Covid19’. It now occurs to me John the Baptist was conducting a CENSUS – with a atonement and purification – which is permissible. Herod counted the elders when he gathered them in the amphitheater. Did he make them swear a oath to Rome, and thus they were counted?

Last night I felt this powerful and dreadful energy aimed at me. We were in the eye of the storm. Prepare for a powerful darkness from those who concluded God – is not on their side.

John ‘The Nazarite’

He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.— Matthew 13:24-30,

Trump wants his supporters to carry special gold ‘Trump cards’ | The Independent

In one message attributed to Trump himself, he said the selected card would be carried by “Patriots all around the Country,” a term he has often used to describe his supporters.

Donald Trump has been ridiculed for wanting his fans to carry golden “Trump cards”, with his critics comparing four designs on offer to far-right, or “Nazi”, iconography.

His supporters were asked in fundraising emails on Wednesday to chose between four golden cards with the former US president’s signature on the front, because “they ALWAYS know best”, Mr Trump wrote.

The golden eagle in Jerusalem: History repeats itself – The Jerusalem Post (jpost.com)

A top official almost resigned because of Trump’s ‘direct instructions’ to weaponize the DOJ for ‘improper ends’: report (msn.com)

A top official at the Justice Department was prepared to resign in January because of then-President Donald Trump’s “direct instructions” to use the department to push bogus claims of election fraud, CNN reported.

To curry favor with Rome, King Herod put a golden eagle outside of the Temple of Jerusalem. Like other military standards, this eagle was carried into battle. The presence of the eagle meant the presence of the Roman Legion. By placing one at the gates, Herod was making a powerful statement regarding Jerusalem’s sovereignty under Rome. Making idols was forbidden to the Jewish people, even if there was no attempt to worship them. Yet the Romans regarded eagle standards as holy symbols, anointing them on special days. Two respected teachers of the law, Judas and Matthias, spoke to religious scholars about this violation. A group of these men pulled down the golden eagle and cut it into pieces. The king’s captain detained 40 participants, along with Matthias and Judas, and brought them before Herod. They explained that they made the choice to destroy the idol because they upheld the laws of Moses, and loved their religion. Offended, Herod gathered Jewish leaders together in a theater. He lectured them about all of the things he had done for them, including improvements to their Temple. The Jewish leaders were all afraid of Herod, and relented. Herod had those responsible for the sedition burned alive. He appointed a new high priest: one subordinate to Herod and Rome.

Archelaus is mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew (chapter 2 verse 1323). An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and told him to get up and take Mary and Jesus and flee to Egypt to avoid the Massacre of the Innocents. When Herod the Great died, Joseph was told by an angel in a dream to return to the land of Israel (presumably to Bethlehem). However, upon hearing that Archelaus had succeeded his father as ruler of Judaea he “was afraid to go there” (Matthew 2:22), and was again warned in a dream by God “and turned aside to the region of” Galilee. This is Matthew’s explanation of why Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea but grew up in Nazareth.

Holy Roman Empire[edit]

The German Imperial Eagle (Reichsadler) originates from a proto-heraldic emblem believed to have been used by Charlemagne, the first Frankish ruler crowned Holy Roman Emperor by the Pope in 800, and derived ultimately from the Aquila or eagle standard, of the Roman army.

An eagle statue was placed on the roof of the Carolingian palace, and an eagle was placed on the Imperial orb of Otto IIIFrederick Barbarossa popularised the use of the eagle as the Imperial emblem by using it in all his banners, coats of arms, coins and insignia.[1]

The Ottonian and Salian emperors had themselves depicted with the Roman “eagle sceptre”, and Frederick II depicted the imperial eagle on his coins. Before the mid-13th century, however, the eagle was an imperial symbol in its own right, not yet used as a heraldic charge depicted as part of a coat of arms.

An early depiction of a double-headed eagle in a heraldic shield, attributed to Frederick II of Hohenstaufen, is found in the Chronica Majora by Matthew Paris (ca. 1250). The Segar’s Roll (ca. 1280) likewise shows the double-headed eagle as the coat of arms of the King of Germany.

The eagle also appears in the seals of imperial cities: that of Kaiserswerth in the 13th century, besides Lübeck (14th century), Besançon[year needed]Cheb[year needed], and others.

Use of the imperial eagle as part of the imperial coat of arms of a ruling emperor dates to after the end of the interregnumSigismund of Luxembourg used a black double-headed eagle after he was crowned Emperor in 1433. From this time, the single-headed Reichsadler represented the title of King of the Romans, and the double-headed one the title of Emperor.[1] Over the following century, Albert II of Germany was the last King-elect of Germany who did not go on to be crowned emperor. After the German Reformation, beginning with Ferdinand I (1558), emperors were no longer crowned by the pope.

The Teutonic Order under Hermann von Salza had the privilege to display the Imperial eagle in their coat of arms, granted by Emperor Frederick II.[citation needed][dubious – discuss] The black eagle was later adopted when the Teutonic State was transformed into the Duchy of Prussia in 1525,[clarification needed] and a modified version was used in the arms of Royal Prussia (1466–1772).

Modern use[edit]

In 1804, Holy Roman Emperor Francis II established the Austrian Empire from the lands of the Habsburg Monarchy, and adopted the double-headed eagle, aggrandized by an inescutcheon emblem of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine and the Order of the Golden Fleece, as its coat of arms; the Holy Roman Empire was subsequently dissolved in 1806. Since 1919 the coat of arms of Austria has depicted a single-headed eagle. Although not a national symbol in the modern sense, the Reichsadler evoked sentiments of loyalty to the empire.[2]

Following the revolutions of 1848 in the German states, the Reichsadler was restored as a symbol of national unity: it became the coat of arms of the short-lived German Empire and subsequently the German Confederation from its restoration in 1850 until its dissolution in 1866. It was once again restored in 1871 when a single-headed eagle with a Prussian inescutcheon became the insignia of the German Empire; the single head was used to represent the so-called Kleindeutschland, i.e. it excluded Austria. After World War I the Weimar Republic under President Friedrich Ebert assumed a plain version of the Reichsadler, which remained in use until 1935.

During Nazi rule, a stylised eagle combined with the Nazi swastika was made the national emblem (Hoheitszeichen) by order of Adolf Hitler in 1935. Despite its medieval origin, the term “Reichsadler” in common English understanding is mostly associated with this specific Nazi-era version. The Nazi Party had used a very similar symbol for itself, called the Parteiadler (“Party’s eagle”). These two insignia can be distinguished as the Reichsadler looks to its right shoulder whereas the Parteiadler looks to its left shoulder.

After World War II the Federal Republic of Germany re-implemented the eagle used by the Weimar Republic by enactment of President Theodor Heuss in 1950.

THE JEWS IN CHURCH HISTORY

For the next 1,600 years there were Jewish converts from time to time (often forced to convert), but there was no meaningful outreach to the Jews. The Church became captive to Replacement Theology. Church leaders argued that God had washed His hands of the Jews when they rejected Jesus. The Church had replaced Israel and had inherited the promises and blessings of the Jews. God had no purpose left for the Jews. They were a people without hope, doomed to wander the nations and be persecuted wherever they went.11
At the beginning of the Reformation there was hope this attitude might change. Martin Luther was initially very sympathetic to the Jews because he believed their rejection of the Gospel was due to their recognition of the corruption of the Roman Catholic Church.
But when they continued to reject the Gospel, Luther turned on them with a vengeance. In 1543 he wrote an anti-Semitic diatribe in which he referred to the Jews as “stupid fools” and “the great vermin of humanity.” Having dehumanized and demonized them, Luther then proceeded to call for the burning of their synagogues and houses. He further suggested that their sacred writings be seized, their rabbis be forbidden to teach, their money be confiscated, and they be compelled into forced labor.12
Needless to say, Hitler gleefully quoted Luther as he rose to power and launched the Holocaust.13 It is for this reason that to this day, the Holocaust is fixed in Jewish minds as a Christian crime.

Laws of Counting Jews

Parshat Bamidbar

  AdvancedBy Aryeh Citron

The first part of the Book of Numbers discusses the census of the Israelites that Moses conducted after the erection of the Tabernacle. Several reasons are given for this census; among them:

1) Out of love for His people, G‑d counted us at important junctures of our history. The completion of the Tabernacle was one of these occasions.1 2) To ensure that the Jews had sufficient numbers to merit the dwelling of the Divine presence upon them.2 3) To ascertain how many warriors the Jews would have in their upcoming battles to conquer Canaan.

Nachmanides3 explains that rather than count the people directly, the method of counting was to collect a half-shekel coin from each person and then count the coins.

“And the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which shall neither be measured nor counted.”This method is described in the book of Exodus, in the context of an earlier census4: “When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to G‑d an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. This they shall give, everyone who goes through the counting: half a shekel…”

To actually count Jews directly is forbidden,5 as the prophet6 says: “And the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which shall neither be measured nor counted.”

What is the reason for this prohibition? The commentaries say that counting Jews directly can bring a judgment on the individuals who, if not deemed worthy, may be punished.7

In addition, the Panim Yafot8 explains that when the Jews are in a state of unity, they are connected to their Source and do not need added protection. When they are counted as individuals, they become “separated” and are subject to individual scrutiny.

For this reason, King Saul counted his army by means of requiring each soldier to submit one shard of pottery, which he then counted,9 and later on by using kid goats.10

King David, on the other hand, forgot this prohibition and counted the Jews directly.11 This resulted in a plague which killed some 70,000 Jews.

Some say that King David certainly did not forget the prohibition, and he, too, counted the Jews indirectly; the problem was that he performed the count simply to satisfy his own curiosity, and not for a specific purpose. Counting Jews without a purpose is forbidden even if done indirectly.12

Although the prohibition against counting Jews is not included in the Code of Jewish Law, it is discussed by the later Halachic authorities.13

Some of the details of this law are:

  1. In place of counting individuals, it is permitted to count a particular body part such as noses or fingers.14 However, the commentaries say that one should not use a limb whose removal would be life threatening.15
  2. Once one has counted in a permissible way, it is not forbidden to say the actual total number of peopleWhen counting for a minyan, it is customary to use a Torah verse that contains ten words instead of using numbers.16 The verse usually used is: “Hoshiah et amecha u’varech et nachalatecha ur’em venas’em ad ha’olam.” “Save Your people and bless Your inheritance, and tend them and elevate them forever.”17
  3. Another common method is to say: “Not one, not two, etc.”
  4. Some permit counting if it is done in one’s mind and not audibly.18 Others forbid this kind of counting as well.19
  5. Once one has counted in a permissible way, it is not forbidden to say the actual total number of people. We see this from the fact that the total numbers of the various tribes are stated in the Torah.
  6. One should educate children to observe this law.20
  7. A Jew may not participate in a counting even if he is not the one actually doing the counting. When a census is conducted in Israel, there is some controversy as to whether it is halachically acceptable to participate.21
    One argument for allowing participation is that the counting is only of written names and not of actual people. In addition, the total numbers produced by the census include many non-Jews. Many contemporary halachic authorities agree that one should not participate in the census unless it is done in such a way that the number of people per family is simply not calculated.22
