Dealing With ‘Die Falscher’
Former award winning ‘Times’ correspondent, Lawrence Malkin, brought out a book in 2006 called ‘Krueger’s Men,’ the true story of ‘Operation Bernhard.’ Very quickly, the book was turned into a compelling film which competed at the Berlin Film Festival in 2007. The Film was called ‘Die Falsher’ or, ‘The Counterfeiters.’
Major Bernhard Krueger, a conspicuously correct SS engineer, ran a production line of Jewish prisoners in ‘Sachsenhausen’ concentration camp near Berlin. Operation Bernhard was named after him and the intent of the Nazi operation was to destabilise the British economy by flooding the country with counterfeit Bank of England, £5, £10, £20, and £50 notes! From 1942 to 1945, the Nazi’s forged more pound notes than all the reserves in the vaults of the Bank of England, some 132 million pounds equivalent in 2008 to over 3 Billion pounds! The plan was that the German air force would drop the money over Britain, but in the end it was used to finance the failing war machine, pay off many of its spies, bail out its fleeing war criminals and finance their flight to other countries. Much of it eventually ended up in the bottom of Lake Toplitz, but Malkin also suggests that some of it was used by the Israeli underground to finance the founding of Israel in terms of its military, its infrastructure and the return of the Jewish Diaspora.
Despite the German air force being almost destroyed and therefore not being able to drop the counterfeit notes over Britain, the use of them abroad by the Nazis was rife and rampant, so much so, that the Bank of England and Britain, in order to prevent the counterfeits from infecting the economy, imposed a wartime blockade on bringing notes of £5 and above, into the country!
There is of course a methodology of attack here and also a principle of protection for us to take note of. Frankly, in these mad days in which we live, I think we need to put the latter into practice, post haste!
I hope the method of spiritual attack is clear. If you want to disrupt and destroy a spiritual economy then flood the market with counterfeits, fraudulent goods of such high copycat quality, that they themselves even believe they are the ‘real deal.’ This has always happened, this is happening today and I believe, will happen all the more as we approach the end of days.
There is little you can do to stop such a greedy and lying invasion, save to thoroughly examine the source and quality of the goods on offer. This can only be done by blockading the export of such spiritual destructive weevils and discouraging the importing of the same. Please! Don’t go bringing that destructive rubbish back here!
The church is not a totalitarian regime, neither is it a government agency with emergency powers to block and to quarantine! However, the leaders of the church do have the authority, do have the necessity, do have the holy duty even, to both exclude and examine any teaching from the pulpit which might destroy the general economy of the local church, which is fed and nourished, guided and directed through the preached Word. The pulpit needs to be protected and saved from such insidious and fatal infections.
Let’s not be deceived. The devil is out to destroy our spiritual economy. So far, he’s doing a damn good job of it as well. Leaders! You must rise up and protect the pulpit before it is all too late.
Listen: - But there were also lying prophets among the people then, just as there will be lying religious teachers among you. They'll smuggle in destructive divisions, pitting you against each other — biting the hand of the One who gave them a chance to have their lives back! They've put themselves on a fast downhill slide to destruction, but not before they recruit a crowd of mixed-up followers who can't tell right from wrong. They give the way of truth a bad name. They're only out for themselves. They'll say anything, anything, that sounds good to exploit you. They won't, of course, get by with it. They'll come to a bad end, for God has never just stood by and let that kind of thing go on. God didn't let the rebel angels off the hook, but jailed them in hell till Judgment Day. (2 Peter 2:1-5 from THE MESSAGE: by Eugene H. Peterson.)
Pray:- Lord, help us be aware of all the tactics of total war and then let us be astute and wise in dealing with ‘Die Fascher, ’ in Jesus name we ask it, amen!
