One day during our study together, the matter of the German Holocaust came up and I asked him if that word was Hebrew or Yiddish. He told me that it was a perfectly good Bible word. I challenged him, stating that the word holocaust was not to be found anywhere in the Bible. I confirmed that truth by double-checking in my Strong"s Exhaustive Concordance. Where upon he opened his Douay-Rheims to a dozen Scriptures containing the word holocaust. One of these is found in Numbers 29:1-2:"The first day also of the seventh month shall be venerable and holy unto you; ye shall do no servile work therein, because it is the day of the sounding and of trumpets. And you shall offer a holocaust -for a most sweet odour to the Lord, one calf of the herd, one ram and seven lambs of a year old, without blemish."
With that insight, the lights went on for me. Wow! Do you see that? Do you get the significance? I will always be in debt to my Catholic friend for showing me the word holocaust in his Bible. It unraveled a mystery. My Bible says that Israel was to make burnt offerings unto the Lord. So, the Hebrew word for burnt offering can be also translated as holocaust!
Studying together, we found that the word holocaust was used more than 150 times in the Catholic Bible, but never once in the King James, or any other Bible translation in my library. That word is not used in the 1599 Geneva or the highly accurate Ferrar Fenton. Noah Webster, the great linguistic scholar who first gave us his famous dictionary in 1828, also published a very good translation of the Bible. He did not use the word holocaust for burnt offering.
Holocaust is a strange word used by both Christians and Jews describing what they characterize as "Germany"s final solution to the Jewish Question." Yet, holocaust has neither a Hebrew, Yiddish, German or English origin. It is a word that has a Greek origin, meaning, "to be burnt whole." How that Greek word managed to get into the Hebrew translation of the Catholic Bible, I can only speculate, and we will discuss that in a later lesson.
What is important for this lesson is that any holocaust is a "burnt offering to a god." In the Old Testament, as you will see by looking up the phrase burnt offering in Strong"s that it appears more than 150 times defined in his word #5930.
[editors note: confirm for yourself that the Hebrew word translated as "burnt offering" can be translated as "holocaust" using a Strong's Concordance for Numbers 29:1-2 and Hebrew Lexicon for Hebrew word #5930]
Sometimes it was a burnt offering commanded by Almighty God which was holy and good. Other times it was an- abomination done by Satan"s Seed to Moloch [Molech] or Astarte [Astereth]. Sometimes the Bible uses the phrase "passing through the fire to Moloch." This is a holocaust that is an abomination, but it is still a burnt offering to a god. Remember, regardless of whether the burnt offering is to Almighty God, or whether the holocaust is for the pleasure of the pagan god Moloch, it is a sacrifice. Holocausts are sacrifices! The burnt offering to Almighty God, done by Israel, was the sweet smell of cattle and sheep consumed on the altar. The holocaust of the Seed of the Serpent was always the sacrifice of their own children, making them pass through the fire ? holocaust -- to Moloch [II Kings 23:10]. These people did not sacrifice an enemy person or the people of a neighboring race to their god Molech, because such would be no sacrifice. Instead, as in the Holocaust in Germany during World War II, they always sacrificed their own people.
The Zionist Jews put the poor, lower class Jews among their kinsmen through the fire to Molech, so that through that sacrifice the State of Esau-Israel might come into being. By their words, and the use of the word holocaust, they have made that admission.
Unable to resist disclosing the tell-tale marks of the Serpent race, these sons of Moloch falsely claim that Six million Jews died under Aryan domination during the six years from 1939 to 1945. They have attempted to make the German people in particular, and the rest of the Caucasian people of the world in genera], guilty of the Holocaust which they, themselves, brought about as their sacrifice for Esau-Israel! The German people, most of whom believed Catholics or Lutherans, had no intention of sacrificing their Seed unto Moloch, Molech, Ashtoreth or Astarte, and they did not do so. Don"t you see? If the Germans did it to the Jews, it could not properly be called a holocaust. By their own lips, the Jews have, once again, betrayed themselves.
