False Messiah : Sabbatai Zevi


On the Jewish holy day of mourning, Tisha B’Av, a man named Sabbatai Zevi was born in Smyrna under the Ottoman Empire. Sabbatai Zevi’s name is significant because it literally means “Saturn” or “hexa” which is the number 6 in Jewish Gematria. Sabbatai lived a normal Jewish life where he studied the Talmud and Haleakala, and even attended a yeshiva under the Rabbi of Smyrna, Joseph Escapa. Sabbatai had a deep fascination with mysticism and Kabbalic magic.

At the age of 22, Sabbatai began declaring to the world that he was the true Messiah. In order to prove this claim, he started to pronounce the Tegragrammaton (name of God) which was forbidden in Haleakala laws. Sabbatai lived a pious life of a mystic in Smyrna, but he didn’t have the following needed to prove that he was the Messiah. Approximately 3 years later, Sabbatai and his disciples were excommunicated from Smyrna, though the next 7 years of his life are unknown. In 1658, Sabbatai was in Constantinople where he met a preacher named Abraham Yachini who confirmed Sabbatai’s “Messianic mission”. Yachini is said to have forged a manuscript in archaic characters which bore testimony to Sabbatai’s Messiah-ship. It was entitled “The Great Wisdom of Solomon”, and began:

“I, Abraham, was confined in a cave for forty years, and I wondered greatly that the time of miracles did not arrive. Then was heard a voice proclaiming, 'A son will be born in the Hebrew year 5386 [the year 1626 CE] to Mordecai Zevi; and he will be called Shabbethai. He will humble the great dragon; … he, the true Messiah, will sit upon My throne.”

With the document he needed to prove his Messiah-ship, Sabbatai decided to head to the land of Salonica which was the epicenter of Jewish Kabbalists at the time. He proclaimed himself as the Messiah, and began hosting all sorts of mystical events. The Rabbis of Salonica banished him from the city shortly after. It is unclear the route he took after his second banishment, but research suggests he landed in Jerusalem.

In Jerusalem, he resumed his life of ascetic practice which many interpreted as proof of his piety. He was said to have a good voice when he sang psalms and would attract large crowds of listeners. Gradually, he began to develop the following he needed. At the time that Sabbatai was in Jerusalem, the community was poor due to heavy taxes imposed by the Ottoman government. The community decided that Sabbatai should be the one to appeal the Kalabi for money and support. He succeeded in getting the funds to pay off the Turks which further raised the notion that he was the Messiah.

Sabbatai Zevi declared himself the Messiah in1666 after accumulating a huge following for helping pay Jerusalem's debt. He attracted more than half of European Jews and promised to return them to their homeland in Palestine. He inverted every teaching into the Talmud into his own version of the teachings.

  • No more guilt
  • No more sin
  • No right or wrong
  • No more ten commandments
  • No more fasting, only feasting
  • No more Sabbath

Sabbatai preferred the teaching of the Talmud over the Torah and tried to remove the Torah from Jewish tradition. Sabbatai’s beliefs eventually caught up to him when the Sultan of Turkey demanded that he convert to Islam or die. Sabbatai eventually converted to Islam to avoid death, but his poison was already released onto the world.



One century later, a man named Jacob Frank expanded upon and continued his occult philosophy. Frank claimed to be the reincarnation of Zevi and the living Messiah of all Jews. Frank and his disciples were even more wicked.

Below are a few excerpts from his writings:

“Since we can’t all be Saints, let us all be sinners.”

“The best way to emulate God is to cross every boundary, transgress every taboo and mix the sacred with the profane just as God did.”

Frank taught that incest, rape, pedophilia including sodomy of young boys were encouraged.

In 1773, Jacob Frank traveled to Frankfurt, the birthplace of the modern banking cartel. There in Frankfurt, he formed an alliance with Adam Weishaupt and Meyer Amshel Rothschild called the Order of the Illuminati. The purpose of the alliance was to win control of the worlds gold and central banking. Overtime, the alliance sent their agents overseas to America, these agents included John Jacob Astor, Jacob Shift and Paul Walberg where they infiltrated the privatization of the Federal Reserve system. Weishaupt's mission was to take control and undermine the hierarchy of the Catholic Church.


The teachings of Zevi were purely evil in nature, however Jews of the 1600s bought everything he claimed because they witnessed him perform miracles and saved the city of Jerusalem. One century later, a man named Jacob Frank claiming to be his reincarnation expounded upon his teachings and installed the Jewish banking cabal as well as the failing Catholic Church we see today. Every teaching these two men expounded upon went against the spiritual teachings of the Torah, yet desperation allowed their belief systems to catch on amongst Jews to the point where modern Jews still use their system.

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
