KJV - Matthew 8:2, “And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.”
JND - Romans 1:20, “for from the world's creation the invisible things of him are perceived, being apprehended by the mind through the things that are made, both his eternal power and divinity,—so as to render them inexcusable.”
KJV - Romans 1:20, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
JND - Romans 10:9, “that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from among the dead, thou shalt be saved.”To confess “the Lord Jesus” is something quite different than to confess “Jesus as Lord.” You do not have to confess Jesus as the Lord of your life to get to Heaven. This is the damnable heresy of Lordship Salvation, which heresy is unfortunately taught in nearly every neo-evangelical church cults today. Where do you think such pastors get that damnable doctrine from? They get it from counterfeit Bible versions like the John Nelson Darby Bible (JND).
KJV - Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
JND - 1st John 5:7, “For they that bear witness are three:”Here you can clearly see where they again removed the Trinity, that is, the Godhead. The Devil's modern Bible revisions all make a brutal assault on the Godhead, Jesus' deity and the blood of Christ.
KJV - 1st John 5:7, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
JND - John 1:3, “All things received being through him, and without him not one thing received being which has received being.”KJV - John 1:3, “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

MR. GRANT HAS with very great diligence collected much valuable information as to that section of Plymouth Brethren who follow Mr. Darby. As on all hands, with a diligence never exceeded, and a subtlety never equaled, they are laboring to seduce the members of our churches to the subversion of the truth and the overthrow of the needful order and discipline of our Zion, it may be well to disseminate information concerning their sentiments and tactics.
SOURCE: “Mr. Grant On 'The Darby Brethren,'” by Charles Spurgeon from his June 1869 edition of the 'Sword and Trowel'A British author and newspaper editor named James Grant (1802-1879) wrote this:
“With the deadly heresies entertained and taught by the Plymouth Brethren, in relation to some of the most momentous of all the doctrines of the Gospel, and to which I have adverted at some length, I feel assured that my readers will not be surprised at any other views, however unscriptural and pernicious they may be, which the Darbyites have embraced and zealously seek to propagate.”
SOURCE: Grant, James (1875), 'The Plymouth Brethren: Their History and Heresies.' London: William Macintosh, p. 60John Darby is considered by most theologians to be the father of modern-day Dispensationalism (a false doctrine). I don't like dispensational teaching, simply because the Bible does not teach it. Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) said that dispensational teaching is an overlay to the Scriptures, to help the student. Dr. Ironside said it is not Bible doctrine, it is just an overlay. Albeit, I humbly disagree. I think it is doctrine, because it affects the student's mindset and attitude toward the Bible. In the worst case of ultra-dispensational teaching, it indoctrinates a student with the heresy of Zionism, compelling the student to idolize manmade Israel instead of emphasizing preaching the Gospel as the Bible intended.
Greetings again, friends and foes. We are continuing our deep dive into the Rothschild/Zionist agenda. I’m getting some great emails from you sharing insight into this historic plan to pervert the gospel—a plan which certainly seems to have succeeded. I appreciate the time you take to share. Some have asked for references and footnotes. Those will be in the upcoming book, but I am swamped with notes and formatting and need more time to organize. However, I will give you three of the many resources I am drawing from in the event you wish to do your own research: The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand and Yael Lotan, The Thirteenth Tribe by Arthur Koestler, and DNA Science and the Jewish Bloodline by Texe Marrs.
Why is this story important for the preterist community and Fulfilled! Magazine readers? Because regarding the nation of Israel, Zionism is the polar opposite of what we understand about fulfilled prophecy. This Zionist view has derailed, stunted, perverted, and impeded the spread of the “fulfilled gospel” and hindered the Church in its mission. Zionism teaches a future coming of Christ and an earthly kingdom. Here is a perfect example why Zionism should be defeated: In September 2022, Pastor Michael Miano (Blue Point Bible Church, Blue Point, NY) and his family took a Sunday off to visit a local Church in an act of unity in the community. As Pastor Miano and his wife were enjoying the sermon, he received a tap on the shoulder from one of the Church’s leaders. They asked Michael and his family to leave as he is guilty of teaching the “false doctrine” of preterism.
This is what Rothschild, Scofield, Dallas Theological Seminary, Pat Robertson, John Hagee, Tim LaHaye, Billy Graham, and countless others have created; a perverted religion where ignorant segments of the body can’t discern Scripture. Zionism is an ‘antichrist’ spirit. Had Rothschild never engaged the services of Scofield, the Church might have continued on its path of understanding the complete work of Yeshua. We have a huge task in front of us, but don’t you feel the tide turning? I’m sensing it in the social media comments and posts by preterists. Even non-believers are coming to an understanding of how corrupt and wicked the Rothschild family was/is, and how ‘un-Jewish’ Jews truly are. So, hang in there, keep studying history. Dig. Research. Pray. God has lifted the blinders and we need to share all we can. Especially about the loving, forgiving kindness of the Father. Yes, He can and has gotten ‘mighty riled up’ with kinfolk in the past and has every right to do so in the future. But we are His kids, and He loves us, even when He disciplines us!
Darby Plants the Seeds
Before examining Scofield’s life, we need to understand John Nelson Darby, the principle figure from whom Scofield borrowed his biblical analysis. Darby was a Satanist, Freemason, and agent of the Rothschild-owned British East India Company. Darby’s family owned Leap Castle, renowned as the most sinister and occultic castle in Ireland’s history. Darby became a leader of a Christian sect called the Plymouth Brethren. He is generally credited with originating the “Secret Rapture” doctrine and made several trips to America to spread his “vaccine” of heresies.
Darby used many terms in common with occult Theosophists: he referred to Jesus as “the coming one” (the term New Agers use for the Antichrist); referred to God as the “architect” (same phrase employed by Freemasons, meaning “God” for the uninitiated, but “Lucifer” to true initiates); and many other occult phrases. Darby even penned his own satanic version of the Bible. The Illuminati always knew they could not perform a wholesale transformation of the Bible, because it would be recognized and rejected. Therefore, the approach through the centuries has been to whittle it away: a word here, a phrase there—the universal strategy of boiling the frog.
Darby slyly introduced satanic wording into the biblical text. For example, in the King James rendering of John 6:69, Peter told Jesus: “And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.” Darby rendered this: “And we have believed and known that thou art the holy one of God.” In the King James, “Holy one of God” is a title for Jesus used only by demons.
Scofield Spreads Darby Like a Virus
In 1897, Theodore Herzl began hosting the Rothschild-backed Zionist congresses in Switzerland, developing the plan for a Zionist takeover of Palestine. On August 29, 1897, Herzl predicted that within fifty years there would be a Jewish state. And that would have been . . . 1947. Coincidence? Knowing this scheme would require Christian approval, Herzl approached Pope Pius X in 1904, who very politely told him where he could stick his plan. After being rejected by the Catholics, the Rothschilds knew Protestant support would be essential. But this could only be achieved by tampering with the Bible to make it appear God himself had ordained Jews to retake Palestine. Such a Bible needed to come from a non-Jew, someone with credentials as a theologian. And thus emerged Cyrus Scofield and his reference Bible.
Scofield started out as a crooked Kansas lawyer and politician. In 1881, the Atchison Globe reported: “C. I. Schofield [sic], who was appointed United States District Attorney for Kansas in 1873, and who turned out worse than any other Kansas official, is now a Campbellite preacher in Missouri. His wife and two children live in Atchison. He contributes nothing to their support except good advice.”
That same year, the Topeka Daily Capital published this:“Cyrus I. Schofield [sic], formerly of Kansas, late lawyer, politician and shyster generally, has come to the surface again, and promises once more to gather around himself that halo of notoriety that has made him so prominent in the past. The last personal knowledge that Kansans have had of this peer among scalawags, was when about four years ago, after a series of forgeries and confidence games, he left the state and a destitute family and took refuge in Canada. For a time he kept undercover, nothing being heard of him until within the past two years when he turned up in St. Louis, where he had a wealthy widowed sister living who has generally come to the front and squared up Cyrus’ little follies and foibles by paying good round sums of money. Within the past year, however, Cyrus committed a series of St. Louis forgeries that could not be settled so easily, and the erratic young gentleman was compelled to linger in the St. Louis jail for a period of six months.”However, court cases against Scofield were inexplicably dropped. As Joseph M. Canfield, who is probably Scofield’s most thorough biographer, noted: “The very sudden dropping of the criminal charges without proper adjudication suggests that Scofield’s career was in the hands of someone who had clout . . .”
Scofield immersed himself in Darby’s teachings and made rapid ecclesiastical progress: by 1881 he was already pastoring in St. Louis, despite having no seminary training or religious education.
In 1882, Scofield moved to Dallas and began an extended term as pastor of the First Congregational Church. Possibly this move was necessitated because his criminal past and familial irresponsibility were too well known in the Kansas-Missouri region. As Rev. John S. Torell wrote:“There were a number of wealthy and political power brokers in the membership of the First Congregational Church in Dallas . . . I do know that most churches in the United States are heavily infested with Freemasons. George Bannerman Dealey was a member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church in the later part of his life. But he was also heavily involved in the occult, majoring in the Scottish Rite of Masonry with a 33rd degree and active as a Shriner, and was also a member of the Red Cross of Constantine. Most likely he had a hand in getting Cyrus into Masonic circles and particularly the Lotos Club in New York.”Meanwhile, back in Kansas . . . in 1883, Scofield’s wife Leontine, and her children, were granted a divorce on the grounds of abandonment. Within six months of the divorce, Scofield married a new wife, Hettie.
The apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, “But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel” (1st Timothy 5:8). Scofield’s fans gave him a free pass on this teaching and, big surprise, the Scofield Reference Bible makes no commentary on this verse.
Although Scofield became quite wealthy from his reference Bible, there is no evidence that he ever shared his riches with his abandoned family, or ever made restitution to the people whom he had defrauded in Kansas and Missouri.
By 1892 Cyrus began using the title “Dr. Scofield.” However, there is no evidence Scofield ever received a doctorate. He never attended a college or seminary. Again, this deceit was performed to erase any “red flags” from those doubting his new version of the Scriptures.
