Sabbatean Frankist-Freemasonic Chronology
The Mystical Jewish Messiah of the 17th century, Sabbatai (Shabbatai) Tzvi, promised to depose the kings of the earth, unite the ten lost tribes and restore Israel. When Sabbatai approached the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire he thought that the Sultan would have the humility to recognize his greatness and humble himself. The Sultan would have met a man who was clearly greater than himself. Sabbatai would receive the Sultanate and rule the known world. He originally intended to accomplish these goals overtly, however, when the Ottoman ruler threatened to kill him rather than hand over his throne, Sabbatai Tzvi understood that he had to take his messianic movement underground. His goals had to be achieved with stealth and deception. His movement was labelled “Apostate Messianism”. Though he would loose the open support of most rabbinic authorities and mainstream Judaism, his faithful followers would be assigned the task of continuing his mission.
Forty-one years after Sabbatai Tzvi’s physical death, his hidden followers would establish Freemasonry in England. Freemasonry would continue Sabbatai Tzvi’s agenda of achieving world rule. Freemasonry linking up with Illuminism has indeed, through revolution and wars, overthrown the monarchies of the world. Freemasonry/Illuminism has taken the reins of the Jewish, Catholic (Vatican) and the Islamic world, united the remnant of the lost tribes through the establishment of the European Union and has “restored” Israel.
The infidel “rabbinic” European Jews who had abandoned Sabbatai Tzvi were decimated by the Freemasonic Holocaust of World War II. The Masonic State of Israel would be granted independence by the Masonic United Nations.
1492- Jewish Expulsion from Spain1492- The first known Illuminati order (Alumbrado) was founded in 1492 by Spanish Crypto-Jews, called ‘Marranos’.
1494- The first evidence of Jews in Tudor England after the expulsion.
1527- Ignatius Loyola, while studying at Salamanca, was brought before an ecclesiastical commission on a charge of sympathy with the alumbrados, but escaped with an admonition.
1588- The Converso (a Jew or Moor of medieval Spain and Portugal who professed to convert to Christianity in order to avoid persecution or expulsion) Dr. Hector Nunes was lauded as a hero for being the first to warn of the sailing of the Spanish Armada.
1589- Christopher Marlowe’s anti-Semitic play, The Jew of Malta, was first performed.
1594- Queen Elizabeth I’s physician, a Converso named Dr. Roderigo Lopez, was implicated in a plot to assassinate Elizabeth. He was tortured, tried and hanged on what is suspected to be a false charge of treason. Anglo Jewry then fled to the Low Countries, often disguised as Spanish or Portuguese Roman Catholics.

1639- Sabbatai Tzvi reaches bar-mitzvah (13 years old)
1640- Manasseh Ben-Israel named to head Yeshiva (enabled by the Bankers Perreiras) enabling him to focus on writings. Manasseh was most profoundly interested in Messianic problems. He was full of Cabalistic opinions. He entered into correspondence with Christina, Queen of Sweden, ostensibly regarding matters of Hebrew learning, but probably with the design of getting her help in obtaining for the Jews admission into Sweden. But his chief attention was directed to securing the readmission of Jews into England. [Antonio de Montezinos, nee Aaron Levi, a 17th century Converso who reclaimed his Jewish ancestry after fleeing the Inquisition in Portugal, went to Peru in search of a "holy people" rumoured to be living among the Amazon Indians. On a remote jungle river near the Ecuadorian border, Montezinos was greeted by a band of light-skinned "Indians" in dugout canoes. On learning that he was an Israelite from across the seas, the fair complexioned aborigines recited the "Shema Israel" and announced they were descendants of the tribe of Reuben. On his return to Amsterdam, Montezinos shared his discovery with a famous Converso rabbi, Menasseh Ben-Israel, who broadcast the news on his printing press that the Biblical prophesy had been fulfilled. He predicted that the scattered tribes of Israel were soon to reunite in Jerusalem to rebuild Solomon's temple and usher in the Messianic age.]
1647- Oliver Cromwell conspires with Manasseh Ben-Israel’s agent to execute English King Charles I. [An entry for June 6th 1647, from Oliver Cromwell to an Ebenezer Pratt, says (in modern language): "In return for financial support will advocate admission of Jews to England; this, however, impossible while Charles living, Charles cannot be executed without trial, adequate grounds for which at present do not exist, Therefore, advise that Charles be assassinated, but will have nothing to do with procuring an assassin, though willing to help with his escape."
Ebenezer Pratt's reply was on July 12th 1647 : "Will grant financial aid as soon as Charles removed and Jews admitted, assassination too dangerous. Charles should be given the opportunity to escape, his recapture will then make trial and execution possible. The support will be liberal, but useless to discuss terms until trial commences." Another trial was ordered by Cromwell because his agreement with his backers in Amsterdam was that Charles would be executed. The indictment against Charles was drawn up by Isaac Dorislaus, the agent in England of Manasseh Ben-Israel, one of the main funders from Amsterdam of the Cromwell 'revolution'."]
1642- Sabbatai began the Kabbalistic meditative discipline “Climbing Sephirotic Ladder” (The Lost Messiah page 26)
1707- Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato born. Luzzatto admitted to being influenced by the writings of Nathan of Gaza, Sabbatai Tzvi's "prophet." He claimed that the positive elements of Sabbatai Tzvi's teachings could be separated from the “heretical” elements, but few rabbinic authorities agreed with this opinion, since Sabbateanism was a powerful wave sweeping over the Jewish community. A bitter controversy ensued concerning the verity and propriety of Luzzatto's activities and claims. Luzzatto's house was searched and evidence that he engaged in magical practices was found. He was compelled to cease and desist from teaching Kabbalah.

Announcing that, “He will proceed to the river Sambatyon to bring back the Lost Tribes". Sabbatai Tzvi and Nathan the Prophet felt an empathy for Jesus. According to Sabbatean belief, the soul of the messiah had been reincarnated 18 times from Adam onward, including, probably, Jesus. Reportedly Sabbatai Tzvi once exclaimed: "What has Jesus done that you ill-treated him thus? I shall see to it that he will be counted among the prophets.

At that time a new type of Jew was emerging, one who had acquired some Western education and had adjusted his behaviour to conform to the standards accepted among gentiles, to the extent that he now could aspire to full membership in their society. This new Jew first made his appearance among the Sephardim of England, Holland, and France and afterward among the Ashkenazim of all Western countries. After the 1780's he became a permanent feature of European social life as becomes evident from the number of Jews who kept knocking at the doors of the Masonic lodges.
1732- Another Jew, Edward Rose, was initiated in a Lodge presided by Daniel Delvalle, 'eminent Jew snuff merchant' as characterized in a report in the Daily Post of 22 September 1732. Without doubt, Delvalle must have preceded Rose by several years, to have reached the high position of Master of the Lodge. Furthermore, Bro. Mathias Levy, in an article entitled 'Jews as Freemasons' published in The Jewish Chronicle in 1898, claims that the initiation took place 'in the presence of Jews and non-Jews.' These other Jews present must have been Masons themselves, initiated at an earlier date.
1734- 6,000 Jews live in England. The Jewish upper class still consisted of brokers and foreign traders, but Jews gradually entered all areas of life. The first Jews were Sephardim.
