10-1-11 -  This was more of a vision.  This was like a drum - divided horizontally into 6 rows.  On each row was a man figure - but I just see that as a head with wings.

I was told that the row was divided into 12 sections, and the man figure would move to the side every three spaces which were hours at a time, but each row was 3 spaces (hours) apart and they all moved at the same time around the  clock (drum)




10-1-11 - DREAM - I was moving into a new apartment, which was wallpapered green with flowers on it..  I had left all my furniture and clothing at my mothers house.  the clothes were all in a basket in her Master bedroom closet.

I had a telephone on a small table, and it rang in the middle of the afternoon.  The caller was IESOUS (/GREEK NAME FOR JESUS) and he asked me to go to lunch with him, but it was already 3 p.m. and I thought he was drunk so I turned him down saying that I had eaten lunch at 1 p.m.  After I hung up, I regretted saying, "No" and used redial to call him back because I didn't know what his number was. 

When I called him back, his mother answered and she said that he had already left and I had missed him.  I told her to tell him I was sorry that I had said, "No" and hung up, regretting my answer to him.

I then started getting female visitors who had come to see my apartment.  that was all there was to see was the empty rooms, but they had no problem with that.  My daughter was with them as well. 

I had some 'stuff' with me, and I started sorting it out, trying to decide what to keep and what to give away, and what to throw out.

I started with the jewelry, and I had a whole bowl of strung beads, some of which ;looked like red worms to me.  One of the girls found two sea shells she said she would keep to make a power bracelet with them. 

I'm not sure what kind of power you get from two sea shells, but I let her have them.

I had a necklace that was made of wood pieces on what looked like shoe string..  I offered that to two black women who were sitting on the floor at the far end of the room, thinking they might relate it to African tribal jewelry, but they turned it down, so I kept it.

I ended up with small jewelry tools, and I decided to keep those, because tools and screws and bolts and nuts might always have a use in the future.

My daughter said she was going to go home, but before she left, she changed clothes and left me her underwear which was pretty, so I decided I would wash it and wear it myself instead of going all the way back to my mother's house for my old clothes.  I figured I could buy all new clothing instead of making that trip back there again just for old clothes.

About that time, I noticed that I had a group of black goats, and there was a box on the floor with some sticks of wood branches in it, and one of the goats went over to the box and pooped in it.  The poop sprayed out of the goat like a thousand little bombs - all over the sticks.I realized that I could save some of those sticks myself, so I ran over to the box and sorted out the good sticks from the badly shaped sticks and  decided to potty train the goats to use the box to relieve themselves in, but the good sticks were okay on the side of the box.

I then started going through a cloth bag of stuff, and found a small booklet.  The title of it was The Songs of Ruth".  I quickly flipped through the booklet, and the songs looked like Bible verses.

I woke up then, visualizing the drum/clock with the winged heads, knowing I could draw them and figure out why they were moving every three hours to a new space around the clock.


NOTE FROM DEE:  Since I had this dream, I've had a lot of computer problems which still continue but after deleting some programs that might have caused the problem and restoring the computer to a month ago, things are better, if not perfect.


During this time, I have had four Jesus dreams (in other words, the Jesus figure looked like the typical Jesus paintings we normally see in images that others have painted. 

One of the visions I had was just the head of Jesus  - no body - and his lips were moving like he was talking to me, but I couldn't hear anything.  Eventually, the head got smaller and smaller and moved up and off t

  on the right side of my vision.  It's possible that what he said I've heard before in the Bible, or it was downloaded and it will come to me in the future. Right now I don't know what to make of it.

The other dreams of Jesus were all Templar related as though I was being shown what the Templars did in history.  I will give links for that information.

What I found interesting is that this dream was about the Song of Ruth, which I did do some research on.  Page 49 of this blog also contains a dream of Ruth (my aunt) who wanted me to do hands-on healing for a person with Parkinson's disease. That might be related to this one.




    5-31-99 - DREAM - I was sending links of metaphysical and ESSIAC (every 3rd link) to my friend Ruth. As I was waking up, wondering why I was sending these files to Ruth.

    4-6-08 - DREAM - I was living in an apartment in Milwaukee which was brightly lit. In the mail I received a gift. There were three dress pins which represented the parts I and two friends had played in a stage play in the past. One was IOESOUS - which was an all white mother of pearl pillar. One was a wide silver pillar with mother of pearl rings at the top and bottom named ISIS, and mine was a delicate white mother of pearl pillar with rings of gold at the top and bottom and labeled GLORY - an angel I had played.

    Then two of my friends walked by who went up on a stage to dance a square dance together. One wore a silver dress - ISIS, and the other wore leather and he had wild reddish brown frowsy hair and he looked like Evil Dick from the Big Brother TV show, and they did a square dance together. I wished I could be up on that stage with them dancing but I didn't have a part in their play.

    I then went home to New Berlin and I didn't find any people there - only 5 caged brown terrier dogs, and one white terrier dog running free with a butch hair cut on her head. (My kids)!



    What are the 2 sticks talking about in Ezekiel 36:19?

    Q. What are the 2 sticks talking about in Ezekiel 36:19?

    A. The two sticks are actually scepters, ornately carved wooden instruments that Kings held as a symbol of authority. Sometimes they were covered in gold and jewels. By putting Joseph’s scepter that’s in Ephraim’s hands and Judah’s scepter together, God will make them into one scepter.

    Israel split into two kingdoms about 900BC, one called Ephraim and the other called Judah. In the passage God is talking about re-uniting the divided Kingdom in the Last Days after He has re-gathered them and making them back into one. According to verse 24 A descendant of David’s (the Messiah) will be King over the whole nation.

    Some Mormons incorrectly call themselves the descendants of Ephraim. They also make the false claim that the sticks are really scrolls. They say that one is the Book of Mormon (Joseph’s stick which they say refers to Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon that he wrote) and the other is the Bible (Judah’s stick). They teach that God will join the two into one gospel at the End of the Age.

    Mormon Missionaries sometimes use this verse to teach that Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, is mentioned in the Bible and that Mormonism is closely related to Biblical Christianity.

    But the context of the passage is the reunion of the 12 tribes of Israel in the Kingdom Age, and therefore the Joseph of Ezekiel 36 is clearly the son of Jacob and father of Ephraim. And the Hebrew word translated stick in Ezekiel 36 is never translated scroll anywhere in the Bible.

    book of Ruth

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search
    • Daniel

     Biblical Hebrew: Megilath Ruth "the Scroll of Ruth") is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible, Tanakh, or Old Testament. In the Jewish canon the Book of Ruth is included in the third division, or the Writings (Ketuvim). In the Christian canon the Book of Ruth is placed between Judges and 1 Samuel.[1] It is a rather short book, in both Jewish and Christian scripture, consisting of only four chapters

    The full title in Hebrew is named after a young woman of Moab, the great-grandmother of David and, according to the Christian tradition, an ancestress of Jesus:מגילת רות, Megillat Ruth, or "the scroll of Ruth", which places the book as one of the Five Megillot. Goswell argues that while Naomi is the central character of the book, Ruth is the main character, and so the book "can be considered aptly named."[2] The other Biblical books bearing the name of women are the Book of Esther and the Book of Judith (except among Jews and most Protestants, who exclude the Book of Judith as apocryphal).



    The Book of Ruth is named after the Moabite woman who was joined to the Israelite people by her marriage with the influential Boaz of Bethlehem.

    The book contains a beautiful example of filial piety, pleasing to the Hebrews especially because of its connection with King David, and useful both to Hebrews and to Gentiles. Its aim is to demonstrate the divine reward for such piety even when practiced by a stranger. Ruth's piety ( Ruth 2:11), her spirit of self-sacrifice, and her moral integrity were favored by God with the gift of faith and an illustrious marriage whereby she became the ancestress of David and of Christ. In this, the universality of the messianic salvation is foreshadowed.

    In the Greek and Latin canons the Book of Ruth is placed just after Judges, to which it is closely related because of the time of its action, and just before Samuel, for which it is an excellent introduction, since it traces the ancestry of the Davidic dynasty. One might characterize the literary form of this book as dramatic, since about two-thirds of it is in dialogue. Yet there is every indication that, as tradition has always held, it contains true history.

    There is no certainty about the author of the book. It was written long after the events had passed ( Ruth 4:7), which took place "in the time of the judges" ( Ruth 1:1).

    Chapter 1


    1 Once in the time of the judges there was a famine in the land; so a man from Bethlehem of Judah departed
       with his  wife and two sons to reside on the plateau of Moab.

        The man was named Elimelech, his wife Naomi, and his sons Mahlon and Chilion; they were Ephrathites
        from Bethlehem of Judah. Some time after their arrival on the Moabite plateau,

                 3 Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons,

                 4 who married Moabite women, one named Orpah, the other Ruth. When they had lived there about ten years,

                 5 both Mahlon and Chilion died also, and the woman was left with neither her two sons nor her husband.

                 6  She then made ready to go back from the plateau of Moab because word reached her there that the LORD
                    had visited his people and given them food.

                 7 She and her two daughters-in-law left the place where they had been living. Then as they were on the road
                   back to the land of Judah,

                 82 Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Go back, each of you, to your mother's house! May the LORD
                     be kind to you as you were to the departed and to me!   

                 9    May the LORD grant each of you a husband and a home in which you will find rest." She kissed them
                       good-bye, but they wept with loud sobs,

                   10  and told her they would return with her to her people.

                   11 3 "Go back, my daughters!" said Naomi. "Why should you come with me? Have I other sons in my
                           womb who may become your husbands?

                    12   Go back, my daughters! Go, for I am too old to marry again. And even if I could offer any hopes, or
                          if tonight I had a husband or had borne sons,

                    13   would you then wait and deprive yourselves of husbands until those sons grew up? No, my daughters!
                          my lot is too bitter for you, because the LORD has extended his hand against me."

                    14   Again they sobbed aloud and wept; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-bye, but Ruth stayed
                          with her.


    "See now!" she said, "your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and her god. Go back after your sister-in-law!"


    4 But Ruth said, "Do not ask me to abandon or forsake you! for wherever you go I will go, wherever you lodge I will lodge, your people shall be my people, and your God my God.


    Wherever you die I will die, and there be buried. May the LORD do so and so to me, and more besides, if aught but death separates me from you!"


    Naomi then ceased to urge her, for she saw she was determined to go with her.


    So they went on together till they reached Bethlehem. On their arrival there, the whole city was astir over them, and the women asked, "Can this be Naomi?"


    5 But she said to them, "Do not call me Naomi. Call me Mara, for the Almighty has made it very bitter for me.


    I went away with an abundance, but the LORD has brought me back destitute. Why should you call me Naomi, since the LORD has pronounced against me and the Almighty has brought evil upon me?"


    6 Thus it was that Naomi returned with the Moabite daughter-in-law, Ruth, who accompanied her back from the plateau of Moab. They arrived in Bethlehem at the beginning of the barley harvest.



    1 [1,2 ] In the time of the judges: three generations before the end of the period of judges; cf Ruth 4:21-22. Bethlehem of Judah: to distinguish it from the town of the same name in the tribe of Zebulun ( Joshua 19:15). Ephrathites from Bethlehem: belonging to a Judean clan which settled in Bethlehem; cf 1 Sam 17:12; 1 Chron 2:50-51; 4:4.


    2 [8] Mother's house: the women's part of the dwelling; cf Judges 4:17; Song 3:4.


    3 [11] Have I other sons . . . husbands? Naomi insisted that her daughters-in-law remain in their own country only for the sake of posterity. If she had had other sons, the levirate law would have obliged them to marry the widows of her deceased sons to perpetuate the names of the deceased; cf Genesis 38:8; Deut 25:5, 6.


    4 [16-17] An example of heroic fidelity and piety. Ruth's decision, confirmed with an oath, to adhere to her mother-in-law impelled her to abandon her country and its pagan worship.


    5 [20-21] Naomi: "amiable" or "pleasant," suggesting God's favor toward her. The Almighty has brought evil upon me: the ancients regarded adversity as a punishment from God for personal sin, as if good and evil were always repaid in a temporal and material manner.


    6 [22] Barley harvest: early April. This circumstance favored the events of the narrative that follow.

    Chapter 2


    Naomi had a prominent kinsman named Boaz, of the clan of her husband Elimelech.


    1 Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, "Let me go and glean ears of grain in the field of anyone who will allow me that favor." Naomi said to her, "Go, my daughter,"


    and she went. The field she entered to glean after the harvesters happened to be the section belonging to Boaz of the clan of Elimelech.


    2 Boaz himself came from Bethlehem and said to the harvesters, "The LORD be with you!" and they replied, "The LORD bless you!"


    Boaz asked the overseer of his harvesters, "Whose girl is this?"


    The overseer of the harvesters answered, "She is the Moabite girl who returned from the plateau of Moab with Naomi.


    She asked leave to gather the gleanings into sheaves after the harvesters; and ever since she came this morning she has remained here until now, with scarcely a moment's rest."


    Boaz said to Ruth, "Listen, my daughter! Do not go to glean in anyone else's field; you are not to leave here. Stay here with my women servants.


    Watch to see which field is to be harvested, and follow them; I have commanded the young men to do you no harm. When you are thirsty, you may go and drink from the vessels the young men have filled."


    Casting herself prostrate upon the ground, she said to him, "Why should I, a foreigner, be favored with your notice?"


    Boaz answered her: "I have had a complete account of what you have done for your mother-in-law after your husband's death; you have left your father and your mother and the land of your birth, and have come to a people whom you did not know previously.


    May the LORD reward what you have done! May you receive a full reward from the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge."


    She said, "May I prove worthy of your kindness, my lord: you have comforted me, your servant, with your consoling words; would indeed that I were a servant of yours!"


    At mealtime Boaz said to her, "Come here and have some food; dip your bread in the sauce." Then as she sat near the reapers, he handed her some roasted grain and she ate her fill and had some left over.


    She rose to glean, and Boaz instructed his servants to let her glean among the sheaves themselves without scolding her,


    and even to let drop some handfuls and leave them for her to glean without being rebuked.


    She gleaned in the field until evening, and when she beat out what she had gleaned it came to about an ephah of barley,


    which she took into the city and showed to her mother-in-law. Next she brought out and gave her what she had left over from lunch.


    So her mother-in-law said to her, "Where did you glean today? Where did you go to work? May he who took notice of you be blessed!" Then she told her mother-in-law with whom she had worked. "The man at whose place I worked today is named Boaz," she said.


    3 "May he be blessed by the LORD, who is ever merciful to the living and to the dead," Naomi exclaimed to her daughter-in-law; and she continued, "He is a relative of ours, one of our next of kin."


    "He even told me," added Ruth the Moabite, "that I should stay with his servants until they complete his entire harvest."


    "You would do well, my dear," Naomi rejoined, "to go out with his servants; for in someone else's field you might be insulted."


    So she stayed gleaning with the servants of Boaz until the end of the barley and wheat harvests.



    1 [2] Let me go and glean . . . grain: even the poor, the widow, the stranger, and the orphan had a right to glean at harvest time; cf Lev 19:9; 23:22; Deut 24:19-22.


    2 [4] The LORD be with you: courtesy and religious feeling characterize the salutations of the Hebrews. This greeting is used in the Christian liturgy.


    3 [20] One of our next of kin: literally "our redeemer," a near relative of the same clan who had the right and duty to restore the land which an impoverished kinsman had alienated ( Lev 25:25-28), and to marry the widow of a relative who had died without male offspring so as to raise up posterity to his name ( Deut 25:5-10).

    Chapter 3


    When she was back with her mother-in-law, Naomi said to her, "My daughter, I must seek a home for you that will please you.


    Now is not Boaz, with whose servants you were, a relative of ours? This evening he will be winnowing barley at the threshing floor.


    So bathe and anoint yourself; then put on your best attire and go down to the threshing floor. Do not make yourself known to the man before he has finished eating and drinking.


    1 But when he lies down, take note of the place where he does so. Then go, uncover a place at his feet, and lie down. He will tell you what to do."


    "I will do whatever you advise," Ruth replied.


    So she went down to the threshing floor and did just as her mother-in-law had instructed her.


    Boaz ate and drank to his heart's content. Then when he went and lay down at the edge of the sheaves, she stole up, uncovered a place at his feet, and lay down.


    In the middle of the night, however, the man gave a start and turned around to find a woman lying at his feet.


    2 He asked, "Who are you?" And she replied, "I am your servant Ruth. Spread the corner of your cloak over me, for you are my next of kin."


    He said, "May the LORD bless you, my daughter! You have been even more loyal now than before in not going after the young men, whether poor or rich.


    So be assured, daughter, I will do for you whatever you say; all my townspeople know you for a worthy woman.


    3 Now, though indeed I am closely related to you, you have another relative still closer.


    Stay as you are for tonight, and tomorrow, if he wishes to claim you, good! let him do so. But if he does not wish to claim you, as the LORD lives, I will claim you myself. Lie there until morning."


    So she lay at his feet until morning, but rose before men could recognize one another. Boaz said, "Let it not be known that this woman came to the threshing floor."


    Then he said to her, "Take off your cloak and hold it out." When she did so, he poured out six measures of barley, helped her lift the bundle, and left for the city.


    Ruth went home to her mother-in-law, who asked, "How have you fared, my daughter?" So she told her all the man had done for her,


    and concluded, "He gave me these six measures of barley because he did not wish me to come back to my mother-in-law empty-handed!"


    Naomi then said, "Wait here, my daughter, until you learn what happens, for the man will not rest, but will settle the matter today."



    1 [4] Uncover a place at his feet, . . .: confident of the virtue of Ruth and Boaz, Naomi advises this unusual expedient to her daughter-in-law for the purpose of introducing her claim.


    2 [9] Spread the corner of your cloak over me: be my protector by marrying me according to the duty of a near kinsman; cf Deut 25:5; Ezekiel 16:8.


    3 [12] Relative still closer: who had a prior right and duty to marry Ruth.


    Chapter 4


    1 Boaz went and took a seat at the gate; and when he saw the closer relative of whom he had spoken come along, he called to him by name, "Come and sit beside me!" And he did so.


    2 Then Boaz picked out ten of the elders of the city and asked them to sit nearby. When they had done this,


    he said to the near relative: "Naomi, who has come back from the Moabite plateau, is putting up for sale the piece of land that belonged to our kinsman Elimelech.


    3 So I thought I would inform you, bidding you before those here present, including the elders of my people, to put in your claim for it if you wish to acquire it as next of kin. But if you do not wish to claim it, tell me so, that I may be guided accordingly, for no one has a prior claim to yours, and mine is next." He answered, "I will put in my claim."


    4 Boaz continued, "Once you acquire the field from Naomi, you must take also Ruth the Moabite, the widow of the late heir, and raise up a family for the departed on his estate."


    The near relative replied, "I cannot exercise my claim lest I depreciate my own estate. Put in a claim yourself in my stead, for I cannot exercise my claim."


    5 Now it used to be the custom in Israel that, to make binding a contract of redemption or exchange, one party would take off his sandal and give it to the other. This was the form of attestation in Israel.


    So the near relative, in saying to Boaz, "Acquire it for yourself," drew off his sandal.


    Boaz then said to the elders and to all the people, "You are witnesses today that I have acquired from Naomi all the holdings of Elimelech, Chilion and Mahlon.


    I also take Ruth the Moabite, the widow of Mahlon, as my wife, in order to raise up a family for her late husband on his estate, so that the name of the departed may not perish among his kinsmen and fellow citizens. Do you witness this today?"


    All those at the gate, including the elders, said, "We do so. May the LORD make this wife come into your house like Rachel and Leah, who between them built up the house of Israel. May you do well in Ephrathah and win fame in Bethlehem.


    6 With the offspring the LORD will give you from this girl, may your house become like the house of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah."


    Boaz took Ruth. When they came together as man and wife, the LORD enabled her to conceive and she bore a son.


    Then the women said to Naomi, "Blessed is the LORD who has not failed to provide you today with an heir! May he become famous in Israel!


    He will be your comfort and the support of your old age, for his mother is the daughter-in-law who loves you. She is worth more to you than seven sons!"


    7 Naomi took the child, placed him on her lap, and became his nurse.


    8 And the neighbor women gave him his name, at the news that a grandson had been born to Naomi. They called him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.


    These are the descendants of Perez: Perez was the father of Hezron,


    Hezron was the father of Ram, Ram was the father of Amminadab,


    Amminadab was the father of Nahshon, Nahshon was the father of Salmon,


    Salmon was the father of Boaz, Boaz was the father of Obed,


    Obed was the father of Jesse, and Jesse became the father of David.

    1 [1] Took a seat at the gate: i.e., of the city, where business affairs were settled.


    2 [2] Ten of the elders: to serve as judges in legal matters as well as witnesses of the settlement of business affairs; cf Deut 25:7-9.


    3 [4] Poverty had obliged Naomi to sell the land of her deceased husband. The law permitted the nearest kinsman to redeem the land and thus preserve the family patrimony; cf Lev 25:25.


    4 [5-6] The heir of Elimelech's field had died without children ( Ruth 1:5). The nearest of kin could now redeem the land but he must also take Ruth, the widow of the late heir, to wife to perpetuate the family of the deceased; cf Deut 25:5-6. The first male child of such a marriage would be the legal son of Mahlon and grandson of Elimelech.


    5 [7] Take off his sandal . . .: by this act the near relative renounced his legal right, both to the field of Elimelech and to the marriage with Ruth. The custom mentioned in Deut 25:6 is somewhat different.


    6 [12] Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah: the right which Judah unwittingly satisfied for his daughter-in-law Tamar (Genesis 38), Boaz willingly rendered to Ruth.


    7 [16] Placed him on her lap: took him as her own; cf Genesis 30:3; 48:12; Numbers 11:12.


    8 [17] The father of Jesse, the father of David: indicating the place of Obed, Jesse and David in the line of Judah and the ancestry of Christ, the Messiah; cf Matthew 1:5-6.

    baphomat goat   666 The picture on the right is from a Canadian hard rock record label





    In India, Nepal, and much of Asia, goats are kept largely for milk production, both in commercial and household settings. The goats in this area may be kept closely housed or may be allowed to range for fodder. The Salem Black goat is herded to pasture in fields and along roads during the day but is kept penned at night for safe-keeping. [27]

    Popular Christian folk tradition in Europe associated Satan with imagery of goats (see Pan (mythology)). A common superstition in the Middle Ages was that goats whispered lewd sentences in the ears of the saints. The origin of this belief was probably the behavior of the buck in rut, the very epitome of lust. The common medieval depiction of the Devil was that of a goat-like face with horns and small beard (a goatee). The Black Mass, a probably-mythological "Satanic mass," was said to involve a black goat[who?], the form in which Satan supposedly manifested himself for worship.

    Thiruvenkadan, A.K, Characterisation of Salem Black goats in their home tract,

    R. Johanan knew of 300 kinds of shedim living near the town of Shiḥin (Giṭ. 68a). It is dangerous to walk between two palm-trees (Pes. 111a). Demons are particularly hurtful at night. It is unsafe to salute a person in the dark, for he might be a demon (Meg. 3a); to sleep alone in a house, as Lilith may seize one (Shab. 151b); to walk alone in the night or in the morning before cockcrow (Ber. 43a; Yoma 21a; compare Cock); to take water from one whose hands have not been washed in the morning (Ber. 51a). Especially dangerous are the eves of Wednesday and of the Sabbath, for then Agrat bat Maḥlat, "the dancing roof-demon" (Yalḳut Ḥadash, Keshafim, 56), haunts the air with her train of eighteen myriads of messengers of destruction, "every one of whom has the power of doing harm" (Pes. 112b). On those nights one should not drink water except out of white vessels and after having recited Ps. xxix. 3-9 (the verses mentioning seven times "the voice of the Lord") or other magic formulas (Pes. 3a). Another perilous season is midsummer noon from the 17th of Tammuz to the 9th of Ab. Then the demon Keṭeb Meriri reigns from ten in the forenoon to three in the afternoon. He has the head of a calf, with one revolving horn in the middle, and an eye on the breast, and his whole body is covered with scales and hair and eyes; and whosoever sees him, man or beast, falls down and expires (Pes. 3b; Lam. R. i. 3; Midr. Teh. to Ps. xci. 3; Num. R. xii.). Demons assume the shape of men, but have no shadow (Yeb. 122a; Giṭ. 66a; Yoma 75a). Attimes they are black goat-like beings (; Ḳid. 72a); at other times, seven-headed dragons (Ḳid. 29a). "Like angels, they have wings and fly from one end of the world to the other, and know the future; and like men they eat, propagate, and die" (Ḥag. 16b; Ab. R. N. xxxvii.). They cause the faintness of students and the wear and tear of their dress in the schoolhouses and assemblies of the learned (Ber. 6a). But they are not always malign spirits. As they, by virtue of their semi-celestial nature, can overhear the decrees of heaven, they may be consulted by men as to the future; this can be done by means of oil and eggshells; only on Sabbath is this forbidden (Shab. 101a). Hillel and Johanan ben Zakkai understood their talk just as King Solomon did (Mas. Soferim, xvi. 9; B. B. 134a; Suk. 28a; Giṭ. 68b; Ker. 5b; Pesiḳ., ed. Buber, 45b).

    Barnes' Notes on the Bible

    Thou hast doves' eyes ... - Thine eyes are doves behind thy veil. So also in Sol 4:3; Sol 6:7; Isaiah 47:2, "veil" is better than "locks."

    That appear from ... - Or, "that couch upon Mount Gilead." The point of comparison seems to be the multitudinousness of the flocks seen browsing on the verdant slopes of the rich pasture-lands Numbers 32:1; Micah 7:14.

    Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

    Thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks - Perhaps this refers rather to a sort of veil worn by many of the Eastern women, but especially in Egypt. It is a species of black cloth made of the hair of some animal, probably the black goat; is suspended from the head by silken cords, one of which comes from the crown of the head, down the forehead, to the upper part of the nose, just under the eyes, at which place the veil begins; for the forehead and the eyes are uncovered, except the cord above mentioned, which is ornamented with gold, silver, and precious stones, according to the circumstances of the wearer. This partial veil not only covers all the face, the eyes and forehead excepted, but the neck also, and hangs loosely down over the bosom. One of them, lately brought from Egypt, now lies before me.

    But the clause, within thy locks, מבעד למתך mibbaad letsammathech, is not well translated, either by ourselves or by the versions. Jerome's translation is an indication of the meaning: Absque eo quod intrinsecus latet; without that, or independently of that, which lies hidden within. The Septuagint, Syriac, and Arabic have, besides thy silence. Calmet contends that none of these gives the true meaning, and that the word tmu tsemath has not the meaning of hair or locks wherever it occurs, and has quite a different meaning in Isaiah 47:2. St. Jerome on this place expresses himself thus: Nolentibus gui interpretati sunt transferre nomen quod in Sancta Scriptura sonat turpitudinem - Ergo Ktmu tsammathech, quod Aquila posuit, verenda mulieris appellanatur cujus etymologia apud eos sonat sitiens tuus. Calmet translates: Vous etes toute belle, won amie; vous etes toute belle: vos yeux sont des yeux de colombe; sans ce que la pudeur et la modestie tiennent cache. I leave the translation of these to the learned reader. See another description under Sol 4:7 (note).

    As a flock of goats - Because it was black and sleek, as the hair of the goats of Arabia and Palestine is known to be; which, with its fine undulation, is supposed to bear some resemblance to the curls or plaits of a woman's tresses. The mountains of Gilead were beyond Jordan, on the frontiers of Arabia Deserta.

    Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

    Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair,.... The same as in Sol 1:15; here repeated by Christ, to introduce the following commendation; to express the greatness of his love to his church; and show that he had the same opinion of her, and esteem for her, notwithstanding what had passed between that time and this;

    thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks; the same comparison; see Gill on Sol 1:15; only with this difference, here her eyes are said to be "within her locks": which, whether understood of the ministers of the Gospel; or of the eyes of the understanding, particularly of, the eye of faith, as has been observed on the above place; do not seem so much to design the imperfection of the sight of the one or of the other, in the present state, as eyes within or under locks and in some measure covered with them, hinder the sight of them; as the modesty of either of them; locks being decently tied up, as the word signifies (i), is a sign thereof, as the contrary is a sign of boldness and wantonness. Doves' eyes themselves are expressive of modesty and humility, and, this phrase added to them, increases the idea; such ministers, who have the largest gifts, greatest grace, light, and knowledge, are the most humble, witness the Apostle Paul; and this phrase expresses the beauty of them, not only in the eyes of Christ, but in the eyes of those to whom they publish the good tidings of salvation: and so it may denote what an exceeding modest grace faith is, which receives all from Christ, and gives him all the glory, and takes none to itself; and what a beauty there is in it, insomuch that Christ is ravished with it, Sol 4:9; and seems rather to be the sense here;

    thy hair is as a flock of goats; like the hair of goats, so Ben Melech. Hair adds much to the comeliness of persons, and is therefore frequently mentioned, both with respect to the bride and bridegroom, in this song, Sol 5:1; and so in all poems of this kind (k); and one part of the comeliness of women lies in their hair;

    "let a woman, says Apuleius (l), be adorned with ever such fine garments, and decked with gold and jewels, yet, without this ornament, she will not be pleasing; no, not Verus herself.''

    The women (m) in Homer, are described by their beautiful hair; nor is it unusual to compare the hair of women, and represent it as superior to a fleece of the choicest flock (n). And here the church's hair is said to be like the hair of goats, for that is the sense of the expression; and which is thought to be most like to human hair, 1 Samuel 19:13; and it is compared to that, not so much for its length and sleekness, as for its colour, being yellowish; which, with women formerly, was in esteem, and reckoned graceful (o); this being the colour of the hair of some of the greatest beauties, as Helena, Philoxena, and others, whose hair was flaxen and yellow; hence great care was taken to make it look so, even as yellow as gold (p): the Jewish women used to have their perukes, or false hair, of goats' hair, and still have in some places to this day (q); and it should seem the Roman women also had, to which the poet (r) refers. And the church's hair here is said to be like the hair of a flock of goats,

    that appear from Mount Gilead; or rather "on Mount Gilead", as Noldius: Gilead was a mountain in the land of Israel, beyond Jordan, famous for pasturage for cattle, where flocks of goats were fed, as was usual on mountains (s); and, being well fed, their hair was long, smooth, neat, and glistering; and so to spectators, at a distance, looked very beautiful and lovely; especially in the morning at sun rising, and, glancing on them with its bright and glittering rays, were delightful. So R. Jonah, from the use of the word in the Arabic language, which signifies the morning, interprets it, which "rise early in the morning"; and which, as Schultens (t) observes, some render,




    NUMBERS 15

    15:32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

    15:33 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.
    15:34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

    15:35 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.
    15:36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.
    15:37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
    15:38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
    15:39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes , after which ye use to go a whoring: (15:37-38)
    God's instructions for making fringes on garments
    Immediately after ordering the execution of the sabbath breaker, God gets down to some more important business -- like instructing the people on how to make fringes on their garments.

    "Seek not after your own heart and your own eyes."
    Should we follow our own hearts?

    15:40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
    15:41 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.

    16 "Son of man, take a stick of wood and write on it, 'Belonging to Judah and the Israelites associated with him.' Then take another stick of wood, and write on it, 'Ephraim's stick, belonging to Joseph and all the house of Israel associated with him.'

    Is Ezekiel 37 a prophecy of the Book of Mormon?

    Click to View

    A. The official position of the Mormons is taken from their own writings:

    1. "Ezekiel saw in vision the coming together of the stick of Judah, and the stick of Joseph, signifying the Bible and the Book of Mormon...The Nephites were then of the tribes of Joseph, and their record or 'stick' is as truly represented by the Book of Mormon as is the 'stick' of Judah by the Bible." The Articles Of Faith, p. 276, by Talmage
    2. "Significantly, the joining of these two books of scripture as a dual witness for Jesus Christ was foreseen more than twenty-five centuries ago by Ezekiel 37." Read the book of Mormon it can change your life, p5, Utah 1975
    3. "Now granting that the Bible is the stick of Judah, where is the stick of Joseph?...Until someone can explain where the record of Joseph is, the Book of Mormon stands unrefuted in its claim to be the stick of Joseph." A Marvelous Work and a Wonder, P66 LeGrand Richards.

    B. What does Ezek 37:16-28 really say?

    ""And you, son of man, take for yourself one stick and write on it, ‘For Judah and for the sons of Israel, his companions’; then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.’ "Then join them for yourself one to another into one stick, that they may become one in your hand. "When the sons of your people speak to you saying, ‘Will you not declare to us what you mean by these?’ say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will put them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand." ’ "The sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. "Say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king will be king for all of them; and they will no longer be two nations and no longer be divided into two kingdoms. "They will no longer defile themselves with their idols, or with their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. And they will be My people, and I will be their God. "My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd; and they will walk in My ordinances and keep My statutes and observe them. "They will live on the land that I gave to Jacob My servant, in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their sons and their sons’ sons, forever; and David My servant will be their prince forever. "I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever. "My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. "And the nations will know that I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever." Ezekiel 37:16-28

    1. Does stick refer to a scroll or a tribe?
      • Hebrew word stick never refers to a book or scroll etc. God would have used Hebrew, "sepherescroll & book" or "megillahroll or volume"
      • Even if it means scroll the B of M was written on Gold plates not a wooden scroll!
      • Heb, "matteh", is translated branch, rod & is the most common root for "tribe"
      • Similar to Num 17:1-3, where names of each tribe written on each stick as symbol.
    1. Mormons see the entire text of the Book of Mormon being written on the stick! But what was to be written on the sticks? The Book of Mormon? No! Ezekiel tells us the exact words, "For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions." NOTHING MORE was to be written on the sticks. This proves that Ezek 37 IS NOT a prophecy of the Book of Mormon being written!!!
    2. Who was to write on the sticks? Nephi? No! Only Ezekiel was told to write on both sticks! If this is a prophecy of the book of Mormon being written, then why is Ezekiel the one doing the writing??? For Mormonism to be correct, the text should have said that Ezekiel would write on the stick of Ephraim (the Bible) and Nephi to write on the stick of Manassah (the book of Mormon). There is no room for the book of Mormon in Ezek 37!!!

    God told only Ezekiel to write only this on the stick:

    Mormons believe this is what was written on the stick:


    C. Ezekiel interprets the prophecy for us very much like Jesus did in His parables

    Will the Third Temple be Built in Jerusalem?

    updated 7-26-04


    Jerusalem, by virtue of the number and diversity of people who have held it sacred, may be considered the most holy city in the world. To the Jewish people it is the Biblical Zion, the City of David, the site of Solomon's Temple and the eternal capital of the Israelite nation. To Christians it is where the young Jesus impressed the sages at the Jewish Temple, where he spent the last days of his ministry and where the Last Supper, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection took place. Also greatly venerated by the Muslims, it is where the prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven. While highly charged with intense religious devotion and visited by countless pilgrims and sages, Jerusalem has also been ravaged by thirty centuries of warfare and strife.

    5-9-03 - DREAM - I was in a huge room, where a meeting had been called. I was with a man named David.

    Something needed to be repaired.

    I was shown the female pattern for the repair.

    Then I was shown the male pattern for the repair.

    Then I was shown there was only one female patch and it had been placed inside a jar of some kind of crystalline fluid, and it was swirling in a circle. It seems that the female was an angel, who was to use this patch. I couldn't figure out how the angelic female patch could be used when it was in a closed jar.

    Then I was shown 25 of the male patches, but they were turned up and held up like shields and all of a sudden, all these men were on white horses and the men and horses became crystalline white - all lined up in a row like warriors, holding up their shields to fight in a coming battle.

    David said that he didn't feel right about something about this job, so I advised him, "If something doesn't feel right, the best thing to do is to go forward and move on!"

    It was time to leave then, and we crawled over a counter-like barrier in the doorway - out into a dimly lit hallway where some teenage girls were walking by.

    One of the girls asked, "Who are you?" I answered , "Me!"

    "Who is Me, she asked.

    I answered by pointing at myself, "ME!" My name was unimportant.

    In 1999, I had these visions:

    July 3, 1999


    I lay in the bed in the dark . . . awake, yet seeing somehow, thousands of white horses, with warriors dressed in white, riding in straight rows, like on a road, eight wide. They were riding down the front of my face from the top of my head. I could not recognize faces, nor race . . . it was all white.


    I lay in the bed in the dark . . . awake, yet seeing somehow, thousands, upon thousands of white horses, with warriors dressed in white, riding eight abreast in straight rows, like on a road. It was as if these horses were on two screens of television, one screen on each of my thighs, moving upward from my knees towards my body. These horses and riders too, were not recognizable as any particular race of people. Everything was white. I was afraid to move . . . afraid that if I moved that it would all disappear. Yet, it went on and on . . . endlessly. Finally, I had to move. However, it didn't end when I rolled over. The thousands of white horses with their riders continued to ride upward from my knees towards my body. There was no stopping them.

    REVELATION 9:16 "And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them."

    (This is 200 million)

    See: Revelation 9:16

    See: Dreams of the Rider on the White Horse

    Chapter 19
    1 After this I heard what sounded like the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying: "Alleluia! 1 Salvation, glory, and might belong to our God, 2 for true and just are his judgments. He has condemned the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her harlotry. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants."
    3 They said a second time: "Alleluia! Smoke will rise from her forever and ever."
    4 The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, "Amen. Alleluia."
    5 A voice coming from the throne said: "Praise our God, all you his servants, (and) you who revere him, small and great."
    6 Then I heard something like the sound of a great multitude or the sound of rushing water or mighty peals of thunder, as they said: "Alleluia! The Lord has established his reign, (our) God, the almighty.
    7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory. For the wedding day of the Lamb 3 has come, his bride has made herself ready.
    8 She was allowed to wear a bright, clean linen garment." (The linen represents the righteous deeds of the holy ones.)
    9 Then the angel said to me, "Write this: 'Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb." And he said to me, "These words are true; they come from God."
    10 I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, "Don't! I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brothers who bear witness to Jesus. Worship God. Witness to Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
    11 Then I saw the heavens opened, and there was a white horse; its rider was (called) "Faithful and True." He judges and wages war in righteousness.
    12 His eyes were (like) a fiery flame, and on his head were many diadems. He had a name 8 inscribed that no one knows except himself.
    13 He wore a cloak that had been dipped in blood, and his name was called the Word of God.
    14 The armies of heaven followed him, mounted on white horses and wearing clean white linen.
    15 Out of his mouth came a sharp sword to strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod, and he himself will tread out in the wine press the wine of the fury and wrath of God the almighty.
    16 He has a name written on his cloak and on his thigh, "King of kings and Lord of lords."
    17 Then I saw an angel standing on the sun. He cried out (in) a loud voice to all the birds flying high overhead, "Come here. Gather for God's great feast, 18 to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of military officers, and the flesh of warriors, the flesh of horses and of their riders, and the flesh of all, free and slave, small and great."
    19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered to fight against the one riding the horse and against his army.
    20 The beast was caught and with it the false prophet who had performed in its sight the signs by which he led astray those who had accepted the mark of the beast and those who had worshiped its image. The two were thrown alive into the fiery pool burning with sulfur.
    21 The rest were killed by the sword that came out of the mouth of the one riding the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

    7-26-04 - VISIONS - As I awoke, I heard a loud telephone ring once in my left ear. I waited for the message and I saw over and over and over a divided temple tent - the outline pieces were always purple, and the tent itself sand colored. Only the first scene showed a pointed red flag at the top of the tent. Each vision showed me only part of the tent - but since all the colors were the same - I believe they were all part of the same temple tent. I was told that, "She will start the war."

    The temple tent was much divided.

    See the verse below to describe who 'she' is.

    (Revelation 12:4-5) "the dragon kept standing before the woman who was about to give birth, that, when she did give birth, it might devour her child. And she gave birth to a son, a male, who is to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was caught away to God and to his throne."

    (Genesis 49:10) "Judah, neither the commander's staff from between his feet, until Shi´loh comes; and to him the obedience of the peoples will belong."
    Notification of the coming Shiloh or Messiah and the requirement of obedience predates the Mosaic law code as does the Abrahamic covenant, just as the Abrahamic covenant was not replaced by the law code, neither was the prophecy of the coming Shiloh. The Jews knew this and even named a city Shiloh where the temple tent was stationed for many years before the temple was built in Jerusalem. On Genesis 49:10, a Commentary edited by F. C. Cook (p. 233) notes: "All Jewish antiquity referred the prophecy to Messiah." Looking for a specific command in the law code requiring the Israelites to obey the Messiah is just looking for a loop hole that doesn't reasonably exist. Was Jehovah pleased when the Jews refused to listen to his prophets? The law covenant was provisional on the Israelites obeying Jehovah and those he sent. (Exodus 19:5-6) "now if YOU will strictly obey my voice and will indeed keep my covenant, then YOU will certainly become my special property out of all [other] peoples," How could the Jews be listening to Jehovah if they refused to listen to his son the Word of God?

    Actually in the Law code the Jews were specifically told to obey the one who was the to be the coming Messiah.

    (Exodus 23:20-21) "Here I am sending an angel ahead of you to keep you on the road and to bring you into the place that I have prepared. Watch yourself because of him and obey his voice. Do not behave rebelliously against him, for he will not pardon YOUR transgression; because my name is within him."

    See: the temple tent numbers:

    A few days ago I had this dream:

    DREAM: 7-20-04 -

    I was living in a house with a large picture window at the front. It looked rather like the rolling dry hills of California. Suddenly, it looked like someone was dropping bombs on something on the other side of that hill.

    Suddenly, I saw a group of Arab guys coming along the side of the field. They were wearing large wrap-around turbans and long robes against the heat. These weren't uniforms - they were all drab colors, yet different from each other as well. They weren't walking in the road - they were walking along the edge of the field. They disappeared into a hole in the side of the hill they walked into.

    I was rather stunned by their disappearance, but when we got up next to where they disappeared, I could see into a cave-like aperture - covered over by dry corn stalks as a shade. Inside the Arab men had chairs and tables and were partying.

    "And men shall enter the caves of the rocks and the holes of the ground, from before the terror of the LORD, and from the glory of his majesty, when he rises to terrify the earth. In that day men will cast forth their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship, to the moles and to the bats, to enter the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs, from before the terror of the LORD, and from the glory of his majesty, when he rises to terrify the earth. (Isaiah 2:10:22)

    I asked Joe what they were doing. He said that they were partying and waiting for what was coming. It had something to do with the 4 and the 5.

    This happened several more times. The men were always in small groups - I didn't count the men- it seemed like there was 11 or 12 of them in each group.

    Joe and I went back home and I saw what Joe was writing on the table. He had outlined a paper - on the list he had the words "pollen path 6", a few separate words, and "the day of the bright 11"

    It was followed by a couple more words. I didn't know what that meant - "the day of the bright 11"

    Rev 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and [there were] seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

    Note that the verse above: Rev. 12:4-5 also fits this dream.

    Significant symbols related to 13 are extensive, of course. A good place to start is the camp positions of the Tribes in Numbers 2. The 12 Tribes camp in quadrants around the temple/tent/Tabernacle. The symbols of the four main Tribes are The Four Living Creatures, which correspond to the Zodiac signs of the solstices and equinoxes during the Age of Taurus. They align again in the Age of Aquarius. The "extra" or 13th Tribe are the Levites, who stay with the Tabernacle. So, the arrangement is a reflection of Heaven above.

    This seems to be the basis of the 12 Apostles with Jesus, The New Jerusalem, the Knights of the Round Table, and the 13 stars in the Star of David on our National Seal, representing the original states.

    The "two anointed" are the High Priest and King. The High Priest is from the Levite Tribe, and the King from the Tribe of Judah. They are represented by Joshua and Zerubbabel in Zechariah 3 and 4, where they are called the two olive trees that stand beside the Menorah (golden lampstand with seven lamps). The two olive trees stand up after 3 1/2 days in Revelation 11:11.

    To add to this puzzle, I noted that today's date adds up to 21. In June, 2004 ago we received this e-mail:

    In a message dated 6/10/2004

    This was the phone number given to me by my Father in a dream two days ago.

    [Hebrew letters & (Ehyeh, I AM) = 21)]

    **This is getting interesting because my son Matthew had his dream...2 days ago.**

    Subj: Fwd: Matthew's Dream
    Date: 6/12/2004
    Hi Dee,

    Just a quick one - my son Matthew had a very short dream the other night ... about the only thing he was able to see was the calendar ... this time he was able to get a year as well as a month. The month was July, the year was 2567.

    Now, I added up the time frame, and I have somewhat of a theory ... so just bear with me because it's only a "What If" theory. Okay, 2,567 days = 7 years and 12 days. Matthew dreamt this on the 9th. So, 7 years and 12 days from the time Matthew had this dream would make it June 21, 2011. Now, a lot of Christians subscribe to the tribulation/mid-tribulation/post-tribulation ideology, which is supposed to be 7 years long.

    What I'm wondering is, if his dream could possibly signify that the beginning of this tribulation has started, or is just about to start So, if the period of this tribulation is exactly 7 years, and it's due to start sometime soon (if it hasn't already) then that could conceivably mean that the starting date, from the date of Matthew's dream to the exact start of the 7 year period, could be June 21st....11 days from now.

    In the meantime, I found this and thought it might possibly apply somehow:

    **And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

    Exodus 3.14

    The Divine Name I AM THAT I AM (GR 543) is God's memorial name unto all generations. God defined it this way so that when the Lord Jesus Christ came to earth and declared this name, there would be no question as to His identity as Almighty God.

    God actually gave two names in Exodus 3.14. The long form I AM THAT I AM and the short form I AM. We have the identity:

    (Ehyeh, I AM) = 21

    The significance of this relation is overwhelming: The Gospel of John, the I AM Gospel lies on Spoke 21! It also integrates with the Isaiah 43 - John connection, as discussed in the Inner Wheel article The Eternal I AM. Furthermore, it integrates with the Shin KeyWord (Shem, Name)! And beyond that, the pronoun "Asher" is
    synonymous with the pronomial particle indicated by the letter Shin, which is maximized on Spoke 21 in the Book of Ecclesiastes! Endless wonder! Divine Perfection!

    The Number 21 is the Sixth Triangular Number, which means it is the sum of all the digits up to and including Six:

    21 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = Sum(6)

    Likewise, Six is the Third Triangular Number:

    6 = 1 + 2 + 3 = Sum(3)

    And 3 is the second Triangular Number:

    3 = 1 + 2 = Sum(2).

    Thus, 21 is a triple triangualar number:

    21 = Sum(Sum(Sum(2)))

    The Number 21 factors as: 21 = 3 x 7

    The Numbers 3 and 7 are a kind of division of Unity in the sense of 10 = 3 + 7. They play an essential role in Creation. Most notably in the value of Genesis 1.1:

    Sum Genesis 1.1 = 2701 = 37 x 73

    The Number 2701 is the 73rd Triangular Number, and both 37 and 73 are prime. In fact, they are palindromic primes!

    * The Number 21
    I AM [Ex 3.14]

    Meditation [S# 1901]

    Joyful, Good [S# 3190]

    Surely, Truly [Ps 23.6]

    Factors: 3 x 7

    Related Numbers: 37, 73, 543, 2701 **

    **Anyhow, like I said, it's just a theory, but something to think about.... I think there's just too much numerical/sacred number significance to bypass this**

    This is Joe Mason's comment:

    Subj: The 21
    Date: 6/12/2004

    You and Matthew seem to be right on the money! Thanks for sharing all this with us. We feel that it is of great

    I have followed "The 21" for quite a few years. It is late, so I will just give some links here.

    An e-mail was sent to a group I was in back in late 1996. It includes a dream about "The 21." I already had some information about the Penultimate Letter, Shin, number 21. The vision of "The 21" is on two sites that I found -

    The 21 (

    The 21 (ufonet)

    Interestingly, I had big coincidences related to the town of Morgan Hill back in 1990. After I read the vision, I drew a diagram of The 21 and realized it was a 6 x 6 x 6 triangle. I didn't know about triangle numbers back then.

    The 1991 Barbury Castle triangular formation has the same pattern in terms of dimensions. Below is a link to a 21 fold crop formation from last season.




    8-6-01 - DREAM - I was shown that there is a political group which is distrusted and is known as the '21' They were shown to mow their lawns in circles about 3 feet across such that the center of the circle was slightly higher than the grass around it. The circles were mowed in perfect rows of these circles. In a secondary view of the circles, it was like double circles locked together. They are highly distrusted.

    8-7-01 - DREAM - I had the same dream for the 4th time this week. But this was like a flash 'knowing' not the dream itself. I'm certain it was about 'The 21' again.



    8-7-2001 - I seems it is time to bring up this topic again because of a dream I had last night. I didn't know quite how to research the dream since the internet does recognize the word 'the' in a search, so I ended up with 31,000,000 (million) sites which I had to
    whittle down using other words from the dream. Firstly, here is the dream symbolism I was given:

    "I was shown that there is a political group which is highly distrusted and is known as 'THE 21". They were shown to mow their lawns in circles about 3 feet across such that the center of the circles were slightly higher than the grass around it. The cirles
    were mowed in perfect rows of these circles. In a secondary view of the circles, it was like double circles linked together. Basically, all I was shown was how they mowed their lawns. "

    It wasn't until after I did my research and found some references to "THE 21" in two ways that I remembered that I had done this page about the terrorist bombings and it fit together. The first reference that fit was an article from Great Britain about 21
    groups they were prohibiting, linked to Usama Ben Ladin. The other reference was to Hezballah, which I had heard about but didn't pay any attention to in the past.

    What does the word Armageddon mean? “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon” (Rev. 16:16).

    Armageddon is on the Plane of Esdraelon, in the Valley of Jezreal (15x15x20 miles). There is the Town/fortress of Megiddo.

    The battlefield of Armageddon will total some 20,000 square miles. The dimensions are as follows: from Megiddo in the north to the Sinai in the south, to the Mediterranean Sea in the west to Jordan in the east.

    God gathers the nations. “I will gather all nations and will bring them down onto the valley of Jehoshaphat” (Joel 3:2).

    Demons also gather the nations. “I saw three unclean spirit . . . for they are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth unto the kings for the earth and the whole world, to gather them into battle of that great day of God almighty” (Rev. 16:14). Because of the nations hatred of God. “The nations were angry” (Rev. 11:18).

    There will be two final events leading to this battle. The drying up of the Euphrates River. “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared” (Rev. 16:12).

    Then comes destruction of Jerusalem.

    What is the meaning behind the Euphrates River drying up before Armageddon? “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared” (Rev. 16:12).

    How does the city of Jerusalem relate to Armageddon? Perhaps the saddest event during the tribulation will be the siege and destruction of the Holy City. This will be the forty-seventh and last takeover of the beloved city of David.

    Why will God laugh at the Armageddon? “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision” (Psa. 2:4)

    What are the unprecedented ways that God will punish His enemies Armageddon? God will laugh concerning man’s puny efforts to fight against Him at Armageddon. “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision” (Psa. 2:4).

    The final onslaught will occur in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, an Old Testament name for the New Testament Kidron Valley. “I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land” (Joel 3:2).

    God will punish the nations in an unprecedented way. “And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard” (Micah 5:15).

    The most horrible plagues ever known will fall upon them. (Zech. 12:4; 14:12-15) They will be crushed as overripe grapes. “And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth” (Isa. 63:6).

    What will be the role of believers at Armageddon? “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean” (Rev. 10:11,14).

    What does the phrase mean “blood to the horses bridle”? Their blood will flow out in a stream 200 miles long and as high as a horse’s bridle. “And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs” (Rev. 14:20). Vultures will then be summoned to feast upon the dead bodies of the warriors. (Isa. 66:24; Matt. 24:28; Luke 17:37; Rev. 19:17,18).

    What will be the immediate results of Armageddon? A trembling and demoralization in soldiers. “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem” (Zech. 12:2). And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour” (Zech. 14:13). A tremendous light produces astonishment and blindness. “In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness” (Zech. 12:4). The army will “melt.” “And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth” (Zech. 14:12).

    (This sounds like a nuclear blast)

    A river of blood 200 miles long and “bridle” deep. “And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs” (Rev. 14:20). Great stench. “Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood” (Isa. 34:3).

    Antichrist and the false prophet are cast into the bottomless pit. “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” (Rev. 19:20).

    "Armageddon" the word means "mount of Megiddo," which refers to a small mountain overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. This great valley has been ground zero for many warriors over the past centuries...

    During the past 4000 years or so, at least 34 bloody conflicts have already been fought at the ancient site of Megiddo and around the Jezreel Valley. The Egyptians, Canaanites, Israelites, Midianites, Amalekites, Philistines, Hasmonaeans, Greeks, Romans, Muslims, Crusaders, Mamlukes, Mongols, French, Ottomans, British, Australians, Germans, Arabs and Israelis have all fought and died there...

    The Bible tells us it will be at this great valley where all Nations of the World will come together for a world war like no other through out the history of the world. (Joel 3:12)

    Each conflict and World War that has ever been fought over the past centuries has bought us a step closer to Armageddon... Including the War on Terror today...

    The Bible also calls the final battle of Armageddon the:

    1. wrath of the Lord (Isaiah 26:20)
    2. hot anger of the Lord (Ezekiel 38:18)
    3. dread of the Lord (Isaiah 2:10)
    4. vengeance of God (Isaiah 35:4)
    5. grapes of wrath Isaiah (63:1-6; Revelation 14:14-20)
    6. great banquet of God (Ezekiel 39:17-20; Revelation 19:17-18)

    Here are some important facts we do know about the battle of Armageddon according to the Bible...

    It takes place at the end of the Tribulation (Rev. 16:16).
    It involves all the nations of the world (Joel 3:12).
    It pits all nations against the Lord and His anointed (Ps. 2).
    It ends with the revelation of Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev. 19:11 -- 21).

    When will this war take place?

    The Bible is silent to the exact date and time the war does take place...However, most Bible scholars are in agreement that the Battle of Armageddon begins some time after the mid point and ends at the very end of the Tribulation period... (Rev. 16:16)

    There are four time factors that allow us to arrive at the approximate time of the war between Russia and Israel.

    The war takes place in the "latter years" (38:8), or the "latter days" (38:16).

    The war can only take place when the Jews are in their land. This prophecy could not have been fulfilled before 1948. Any invasion of the Middle East by Russia previous to statehood for Israel would have been meaningless in regard to this prophecy. The enactment of this scene in the last days also guarantees the survival of Israel until the war with Russia. Were the Arabs to succeed in destroying the Jews, it would be impossible to fulfill Ezekiel's prophecy.

    At the time of the invasion of Israel, Russia must be a major military power, a fact that guarantees the survival of Russia until the war with Israel. The increase of Russian military might is well known, but that immense and fearsome buildup would have no prophetic significance if the Jews were not in their homeland. Conversely, the gigantic Russian arms effort in view of the present Middle East situation must be seen as preliminary to an attack on Israel as prophesied by Ezekiel.

    This war between Russia and Israel must take place when the Jews are dwelling securely in their land. The threat of Arab invasion will therefore have been removed to the point that the Jews feel safe: "And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates" (Ezek. 38:11).

    The Coming War of Armageddon and the Power of the Antichrist...

    And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week... " (Dan. 9:27)

    The Beast (Antichrist) the world leader of the western alliance or the revived Roman Empire makes peace with Israel and guarantees her safety and security at the beginning of Daniel's seventieth week, which is the last seven year period of Daniels prophecy called the tribulation period...However, the Antichrist is not in complete control of the world at this point...

    ARMAGEDDON: A series of great battles (WARS)...

    The Beast must first fight for total control of the earth. To gain ultimate dictatorship and control of the earth, he will have to face the military strength of both the Russian confederacy and a powerful Eastern force, called China. Along with all of their eastern and middle eastern allies...Which includes, Persia (Iran),Ethiopia which includes Sudan, and Libya...Gomer, Togarmah which is modern Turkey will also be allies of Russia...(Ezek 38:5,6)

    The war with Russia will be a brief battle... but deadly beyond what we could ever imagine...

    "But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many." Daniel 11:44

    Russia's attack on Israel will be one of the most destructive battles in history. Ezekiel's description of the battle is as follows:

    ...Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him through all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone (Ezek. 38:19-22).

    The prophet's vision carries with it many characteristics of a nuclear war. There are earth rocking explosions. Mountains collapsing and destroyed. Rain, hail, and fire become part of the deadly picture as nature erupts in rebellion against the forces marching to bring destruction to the Jewish community.

    While details of military action in this war are very few, we know that the weapons used during this battle will provide fuel for seven years...Some believe that the majority of the weapons coming down from the Northern mountains on horse back will be made out of wood...We also know that the dead will be buried in the Valley of Hamon east of the dead sea and the task will take seven months. (Ezek 39:9--13)

    The defeat of Russia will make it clear to the Jewish community that God has protected them: "Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD (Ezek. 38:23).

    The casualties of the Russian army is so great that only one-sixth of the fighting force is left after the battle: "And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel" (Ezek. 39:2).

    There are two important developments that will follow the defeat of Russia....

    First, the attack by Russia will give the Antichrist an excuse for full occupation of Israel under the pretense of protection and safety and will, along with his defeat of the huge Eastern force (Rev. 9:16), extend his power over the entire world.

    Second, the divine protection of Israel as prophesied by Ezekiel and proclaimed to the world by 144,000 Jewish evangelists and writers throughout the closing time will turn many Jews to their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ...

    The Eastern Force As Described In The Book of Revelation

    Following the miraculous defeat of the Russian armies and their allies for Israel's sake, the Antichrist will then vent his fury against the massive Eastern force of 200 million Chinese that is moving toward the Middle East to challenge his power. The casualties in this war will total one-third of the world's population.

    Here is John's description of this great battle in the Book of Revelation...

    And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For this power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt" (Rev. 9:15 -- 19).

    It is not difficult to envision that nuclear weaponry will be used and in the populous Eastern nations and Russia... The destruction that is unleashed by the Antichrist will be beyond what this world has ever seen before...

    1. The army will melt. And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth (Zech. 14:12).

    2. A river of blood 200 miles long and bridle deep. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs (Rev. 14:20).

    3. Great stench. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood (Isa. 34:3).

    Excerpted from:

    Dome of the Rock

    "As the navel is set in the centre of the human body,
    so is the land of Israel the navel of the world...
    situated in the centre of the world,
    and Jerusalem in the centre of the land of Israel,
    and the sanctuary in the centre of Jerusalem,
    and the holy place in the centre of the sanctuary,
    and the ark in the centre of the holy place,
    and the foundation stone before the holy place,
    because from it the world was founded."

    Midrash Tanchuma, Qedoshim.

    This is the oldest Muslim building which has survived basically intact in its original form. It was built by the Caliph Abd al-Malik and completed in 691 CE. The building encloses a huge rock located at its center, from which, according to tradition, the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven at the end of his Night Journey. In the Jewish tradition this is the Foundation Stone, the symbolic foundation upon which the world was created, and the place of the Binding of Isaac. The Caliph Omar is said to have cleared the waste which had accumulated on the rock during the Byzantine period. The structure is octagonal and the dome is borne by a double system of pillars and columns. The walls, ceiling, arches, and vaults are decorated with floral images. The dome, on the inside, is covered with colored and gilded stucco. Abd al-Malik marked the end of the construction with a dedicatory inscription (still visible) which reads: "This dome was built by the servant of God Abd al-Malik Ibn Marwan, emir of the faithful, in the year seventy-two" (Hejira 72 in the Muslim calendar is691/692 CE). Under the Abassid ruler, Caliph al-Mamun (r. 813-833), repairs were carried out, and the caliph also seized the occasion to replace the tiles bearing al-Malik's name with others bearing his own name as the building's founder. However, since he failed to replace the tiles bearing the original date, the ruse was easily discovered.

    Built atop the earlier location of the Temple, the Dome of the Rock was built by the Muslim ruler Abd el-Malik in 688-691. Because of its situation on bedrock, the numerous earthquakes over the centuries have not caused significant damage to the structure (unlike its neighbor Al Aqsa mosque). This shrine was covered by a lead dome from 691 until it was replaced with a gold-colored covering in 1965. Because of rust, the anodized aluminum cover was again replaced in 1993 with a gold covering.

    The location of the First and Second Temples

    Under the level pavement are vaulted chambers known as "Solomon's Stables," traditionally said to date from Herod's enlargement of the Mount. To the right, is the gray dome of Al Aqsa Mosque. At the far right is the Western Wall (the Kotel), the Jewish prayer area. The traditional location of the First and Second Temples lies in the immediate vicinity of the Dome of the Rock. The proposed Northern site for the Temples is just to the left at the stairs. The southern Site for the Temples lies midway between the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa mosque, under an Islamic ablution fountain known as El Kas. The level of the bedrock of Mount Moriah outcrops within the Dome of the Rock and is just beneath the paving stones of the surrounding platform. However, to the south the bedrock drops steeply towards the City of David and the junction of Hinnom and Kidron Valleys.

    The Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem measures approximately 45 acres in extent. It is surrounded by a trapezoidal wall: The south wall measures about 910 feet, the North about 1025, the east wall about 1520 and the west wall about 1580 feet in length. The average height above sea level on the platform is about 2400 feet above sea level. Most of the buildings and surface features are Islamic - no visible traces of the First or Second Temples can be found on the platform currently. The area is park-like in its settings with plants of trees and shrubs and many ancient buildings and monuments added over the past 1300 years of Moslem stewardship of the site.

    The present-day platform area of the Temple Mount lies topographically just below the peak of a Jerusalem ridge system known as Mount Moriah. This is the site David purchased from a Jebusite named Ornan late in his reign. King David prepared the area in order build a permanent House of God to replace the Tabernacle of Moses which accompanied the Jews after their Exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land. David had the plans drawn up for a building whose dimensions were twice those of the Tabernacle, and he amassed great quantities of building materials: stone, cedar, and much gold and silver. However, it was his son Solomon who actually built the First Jewish temple (1 Chronicles 22:14-15, 28:11-20).

    The ridge system where the Temple Mount is now located is believed by many reputable sources to be the site where Abraham was told to sacrifice Isaac (Genesis 22:1-2). While Solomon built the First Temple about 3000 years ago, Abraham's visit to Mt. Moriah was about a thousand years earlier.

    Consecrated Ground

    According to Rabbinical sources both the First and Second Temples were built on the same foundations, at the same location somewhere on the Temple Mount. The site had to be consecrated ground that had not been previously used for tombs and that was not a previous pagan worship site ("high place"). The innermost sanctuary of the Temple, the Holy of Holies, or Kodesh Hakodeshim, where the Ark of the Covenant was placed, marked the exact center of the world, and was the innermost zone in holiness or sanctity in Jewish thought. The manifest presence of God, the Shekinah, was centered between the cherubim of the Ark and especially noted at the dedication of the First Temple---

    When Solomon had ended his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. And the priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD's house. When all the children of Israel saw the fire come down and the glory of the LORD upon the temple, they bowed down with their faces to the earth on the pavement, and worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD, saying, "For he is good, for his steadfast love endures for ever." (2 Chronicles 7:1-3)

    Moving outwards from the Holy of Holies one came to The Holy Place, and then to the Courts of the priests, and of the women and of the Jewish people, then the Court of the Gentiles, and so on, out into the world in decreasing degrees of holiness.

    In one of his final discussions with his disciples (Matthew 24), Jesus predicted the destruction of the Second Temple. It was in fact leveled to the ground on the 9th day of the month of Av in 70 C.E. The temple was thoroughly razed and the site has been so extensively modified during the late Roman, Moslem and Crusader eras that considerable doubt exists as to where the temples actually stood.

    Excerpted from:

    Did Abd al-Mâlik Build Dome Of The Rock To Divert The Hajj From Makkah?

    On 27 August 2002, the archaeologists of the Israeli Antiquities Authority warned that the southern wall of the Temple Mount is in great imminent danger of collapsing. They stated that the bulge in the wall has become much larger. Last year the bulge was 70 cm [2.25 feet] and was 30 meters [98 feet] long. The bulge has now increased to over one meter [3 feet] and is much longer. The bulge was first noticed after Tisha b’Av last year immediately after the Temple Mount Faithful had carried the cornerstone for the Third Temple to the area in front of the southern wall of the Temple Mount.

    The archaeologists also stated that if the wall collapses, the Al Aqsa mosque will collapse together with it. In addition, the other two illegal mosques that have been built over the past years will also collapse. They were built when they changed the Hulda entrance to the Temple Mount and the so-called Solomon’s Stables and made them into the largest mosque in the Middle East. Both of these holy places, together with the southern wall, were built by the Israeli King Herod and completed by 10 BCE. They were part of the Temple complex. On the southern wall were the Double Gate and Triple Gate which were known as the Hulda Gates after the prophetess Hulda and were used as the main entrance for millions of Jewish pilgrims in the Second Temple. The Hulda Tunnel and Solomon’s Stables (which were never stables and did not exist in the time of King Solomon; there were erroneously called this by the Crusaders) remained exactly as they were at the time of the Second Temple until recently when the Arabs on the Temple Mount covered the beautiful ornamentation and the pillars and illegally converted the area into a mosque.




    (May 5, 2003)

    "We are taking steps towards opening the Temple Mount to Jews." So said Jerusalem Police Chief Mickey Levy today, at a small ceremony in honor of the approaching Independence Day celebrations. He said that because of the sensitivity of the matter, he could not specify what steps are being taken.

    Several months ago, Levy said that after the war Iraq, the Temple Mount - Judaism's holiest site - could be opened to Jews, after having been closed to them since the onset of the Oslo War in Sept. 2000. The Yesha Rabbis Council reminded Levy of his words last week, and today responded with appreciation to Levy's statement: "We congratulate him and hope that this black stain upon Israel's independence will soon be removed. The test is in deeds, and not in words."

    "There is a wide perception that the Western Wall is Judaism's holiest site," recently explained Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, Rabbi of the Western Wall and Jewish Holy Sites. Actually, however, "the holiness of the Wall is derived exclusively from the fact that it is a remnant of the Temple Mount - which is truly the Jewish people's holiest site."


    A Letter to President Bush

    by Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed

    May 2, 2003 - Nissan 30, 5763

    To: Hon. George Bush, the President of the United States

    First Lady Mrs. Laura Bush

    Greetings and blessings.

    I would like to congratulate you and the entire American nation on your successful mission against the cruel dictator from Iraq. The toppling of his corrupt regime opens a window of hope for a new era in the Middle East and the entire world.

    This, then, is the hour to right the terrible wrong that has been done to the Jewish Nation over the past 2,000 years. Expelled from their land and homeless, the Jews have wandered throughout the centuries from country to country. Yes, 50 years ago, with G-d's help, we merited our own state - but it is one that has never known a day of peace, and has never enjoyed its own recognized borders. Who knows if it is not you, Mr. President, who has been chosen as the agent to restore the People of Israel to its own small land in the borders delineated in the Bible?

    The People of Israel is intertwined with its Land - all of it - from the depths of its very soul. All the Prophets predicted that we would return - and lo and behold, this is happening in front of our eyes.

    To counter this, Arab terrorist organizations, backed by Arab countries, have made it their goal to wage war against the restored State of Israel, vowing to battle until its destruction. They wish to perpetuate the theft of the Promised Land from its rightful owners, the Jewish People.

    Hon. President and Mrs. Bush, you who began this holy mission of uprooting and destroying evil - please finish the job! Terrorist organizations such as the PLO - which to this very day are headed by some of the worst terrorists of the 20th century - are no different than the regime that until recently ruled Iraq. They will never make peace with Israel! Every attempt to reach an agreement with them brings more bloodshed, as happened with the Oslo Accords.

    The only real solution is to rectify the historic wrong and enable the People of Israel to return to their entire land. Every program that stands in opposition to the Prophets' Road Map cannot succeed. I ask you to stand by Israel's side, help it return to its entire land, and be a partner in the only "guaranteed" process - the Peace Plan laid out by the prophets!

    The communities of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza are populated by idealistic and values-guided Jews, who have withstood and overcome the tremendous difficulties of life in the dark shadow of constant terrorism. They are firmly implanted in, and bonded to, their land. Jews simply cannot be uprooted from places like Beit El and Shilo; to do so is almost a contradiction in terms.

    The word of G-d will stand forever. I implore you not to be a partner to those who wish to go against the word of G-d, as expressed by the Prophets.

    With blessings and great respect,

    (Rabbi) Zalman Baruch Melamed

    Rabbi of Beit El and Chairman of the Rabbis Council of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza

    Shalom and welcome to the home page of the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement. The goal of the Temple Mount Faithful is the building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in our lifetime in accordance with the Word of G-d and all the Hebrew prophets and the liberation of the Temple Mount from Arab (Islamic) occupation so that it may be consecrated to the Name of G-d.

    Endtime prophecy becomes a reality in the pilgrimage of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement to the Temple Mount during Pesach 5763 (2003)

    The Message: Rebuild the Temple immediately!

    The model of the Temple carried to the Temple Mount during the Pesach pilgrimage.

    1,933 years after the Temple has lain in ruins and the Jewish People has been exiled, the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement made a pilgrimage to the Temple Mount and brought an Omer offering during Pesach. In this way endtime prophecy became a reality on the most holy place in the world — the heart, soul and focus of the G-d and people of Israel. For so many years the Temple Mount has been separated from its children; the People of Israel and the Shekinah has mourned, longed for, and missed them so much. So again the children of Israel made a pilgrimage again like their forefathers.

    Despite the fact that the Temple Mount was still closed to its children by the Israeli Government, it was a connection between the heart and soul of the Temple Mount and the heart and soul of Israel. On the other hand, it was so sad to find the gates of the Temple Mount closed to the children of Israel who thousands of years earlier had built this place and dedicated it to be the eternal house of the G-d of Israel. However, deep in our hearts, we knew that time is short and that the march of the endtime movement of G-d — The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement — is the march of the prophetic endtime plans and vision of G-d towards their fulfillment in our lifetime.

    The main message of this march was that the Arab Islamic foreigners and enemies, which are still on the Temple Mount, are now experiencing their last days on the most holy place in Israel. Neither they, nor anybody else in the world, can prevent the march of the G-d and people of Israel back to the place where the house of G-d will soon be rebuilt.

    In front of the holy mountain we could feel the presence of G-d so strongly calling on everyone of us and Israel saying -

    "And the angel who talked with me said to me, Proclaim, saying: Thus says the L-rd of hosts; I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great zeal. And I am very much displeased with the nations that are at ease; for I was only a little angry, and they furthered the affliction. Therefore thus says the L-rd: I have returned to Jerusalem with mercies; my house shall be rebuilt in it, says the L-rd of hosts, and a measuring line shall be stretched over Jerusalem. Proclaim further, saying, Thus says the L-rd of hosts; My cities shall again overflow with prosperity; and the L-rd shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem." (Zechariah 1:14-17)

    "Again the word of the L-rd of hosts came to me, saying, Thus says the L-rd of hosts; I was zealous for Zion with great zeal, and I was zealous for her with great fury. Thus says the L-rd: I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth; and the mountain of the L-rd of hosts the Holy Mountain. Thus says the L-rd of hosts: Old men and old women shall again dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for the fullness of days. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets. Thus says the L-rd of hosts: If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvelous in my eyes? says the L-rd of hosts. Thus says the L-rd of hosts: Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and they shall be my people, and I will be their G-d, in truth and in righteousness. Thus says the L-rd of hosts: Let your hands be strong, you who hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, who spoke on the day that the foundation of the house of the L-rd of hosts was laid, saying that the temple might be built." (Zechariah 8:1-9)

    This exciting and holy event was held by The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement on 18 Nissan, the fourth day of Pesach 5763, (Sunday, 20 April 2003) at a very critical time of prophetic redemption in Israel. Actually the event started two days earlier on Friday when members of the Movement went to the fields of Israel to cut the Omer, the first grain, to fulfil one of the most important commandments of G-d in the Torah which our forefathers did for thousands of years as an important part of Temple worship at Pesach.

    Ze’ev, Gershon and Yoel from the Faithful Movement cutting the Omer.

    "And the L-rd spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the people of Israel, and say to them, When you come to the land which I give to you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest; And he shall wave the sheaf before the L-rd, to be accepted for you; on the next day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. ... And you shall count from the next day after the sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete; To the next day after the seventh sabbath shall you count fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal offering to the L-rd. ... And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before the L-rd with the two lambs; they shall be holy to the L-rd for the priest. And you shall proclaim on the same day, that it may be a holy gathering to you; you shall do no labour in it; it shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not make clean riddance up to the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning of your harvest; you shall leave them to the poor, and to the stranger; I am the L-rd your G-d." (Leviticus 23:9-11,15,16,20-22)

    The grain which we cut was very beautiful — tall and full. This was as a result of the blessings of G-d on the land of Israel — a winter with much rain as a gift from G-d. It reminded us of the situation of the land in the Biblical times and the blessings of G-d on the land to be a land of milk and honey. This was after almost 2,000 years of destruction and foreign control in the land when it became like a wilderness. The law of G-d said that the land can only be a land of milk and honey when He dwells in the land. Now when Israel has been brought back to the land by G-d , the land has again become a land of milk and honey. We were so grateful to bring the first fruits of this blessing as an offering to G-d on His holy mountain in Jerusalem as an offering of thanks, appreciation, and love.

    Part of the Omer in a basket and the model of the Temple in front of the Temple Mount.

    On Sunday morning the Omer was carried in a basket to the Temple Mount. This symbolised the deep connection between the G-d, the people, and the land of Israel. This renewed Biblical event moved the hearts of everyone.

    The model of the Temple which was carried to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall and the Western gate of the Temple Mount was another exiting event. After almost 2,000 years of destruction, the beautiful model of the Temple could be seen by the mountain of G-d and many Israelis who came to the pilgrimage and for the priestly blessing. The message was that the Temple should immediately be rebuilt. We brought the model with us to this holy place as an opening for the fulfillment of the desire of 1,933 years of longing by the Jewish People and many other friends of the G-d and people of Israel all over the world. The model was surrounded by many pilgrims who showed a deep interest with regard to the beauty of the building and the worship in it. We shared with the pilgrims that we had already started to prepare the architectural plans for the Third Temple and that large cornerstones are ready for the start of the building process.

    In front of the Western Gate of the Temple Mount, with our faces towards the site of the Holy of Holies, like our forefathers we again swore faithfulness to the G-d of Israel, His holy mountain and Jerusalem.

    "If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy." (Psalm 137:5,6)

    Like the pilgrims in the time of the First and Second Temples we prayed the Hallel Psalms (Psalms 113-118). These exciting psalms were also heard in front of the other gates of the Temple Mount by the pilgrims from the Faithful Movement and the other pilgrims who joined them when we went around the gates and walls of the Temple Mount. This was accompanied by the Levites who played the music as they did in the times of the Temple. This was a special moment when the Shekinah heard the pilgrims praying and singing:

    "I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the L-rd. I will pay my vows to the L-rd now in the presence of all his people, In the courts of the L-rd's house, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!" (Psalms 116;17-19)

    This was not the first time that friends from outside Israel have marched together with us to the Temple Mount and, through them, the Word of G-d in Isaiah became a reality: " Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples." (Isaiah 56:7)

    The Pesach pilgrimage of The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement was an important stage in the campaign of the Movement for the rebuilding of the Temple. One month from now, on 29 May, the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will again march to the Temple Mount on the day commemorating the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967. Time is short and we know that we have to continue to conduct our holy campaign even more intensively and to bring to pass the prophetic and godly endtime revolution on the holy mountain of G-d and to remove the pagan foreigners from the site of the Holy of Holies and from all the holy mountain of Zion. The Jerusalem Day march will be another important stage in this holy campaign. We shall do everything to ensure that the exciting prophecy of Isaiah will soon become a reality on the Temple Mount and Jerusalem:

    "Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; from now on there shall no more come to you the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake yourself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem; loose yourself from the bands of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. ... How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace; who brings good news of good, who announces salvation; who says to Zion, Your G-d reigns! The voice of your watchmen is heard; together shall they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when the L-rd returns to Zion. Break forth into joy, sing together, you ruins of Jerusalem; for the L-rd has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. The L-rd has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our G-d." (Isaiah 52:1,2,7-10)

    Everyone is called on to participate in this historic event and to march with the Temple Mount Faithful Movement to the Temple Mount through the historical streets of Jerusalem. We are living at a very godly and exciting time in the history of Israel. Expect major godly events in the near future.

    Why is the "Rock of Ages" holy? Now inside the (Islamic) Dome of the Rock, it's said to be the site where Abraham "sacrificed" Isaac, inaugurating the Jewish Covenant. Hyam Maccoby claims that Judaism really did begin with a Human Sacrifice. Are Isaac's remains there? Must the Jewish Temple be built on the exact spot?

    Genesis: 22

    1 Some time afterward, God put Abraham to the test. He said to him, "Abraham," and he answered, "Here I am."

    2 And He said, "Take your son, your favored one, Isaac, whom you love, and got to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the heights that I will point out to you."

    3 So early next morning, Abraham saddled his ass and took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. He split the wood for the burnt offering, and he set out for the place of which God had told him.

    4 On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place from afar.

    5 Then Abraham said to his servants, "You stay here with the ass. The boy and I will go up there; we will worship and we will return to you."

    6 Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and put it on his son Isaac. He himself took the firestone and the knife; and the two walked off together.

    7 Then Isaac said to his father Abraham, "Father!" And he answered, "Yes, my son." And he said, "Here are the firestone and the wood; but where is the sheep for the burnt offering?"

    8 And Abraham said, "God will see to the sheep for His burnt offering, my son." And the two of them walked on together.

    9 They arrived at the place of which God had told him. Abraham built an altar there; he laid out the wood; he bound his son Isaac; he laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

    10 And Abraham picked up the knife to slay his son.

    16 The angel of the Lord said, "By Myself I swear, the Lord declares: Because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your favored one,

    17 I will bestow My blessing upon you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the sands on the seashore; and your descendants shall seize the gates of their foes.

    18 A;; the nations of the earth shall bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed My command."

    19 Abraham then returned to his servants, and they departed together for Beer-sheba; and Abraham stayed in Beer-sheba.



    Much is being said about the restoration of the Temple, who will build it, and when will it be built. The first Temple was Solomon's; the second one was Hezekiah's which was extensively remodeled by Herod. The Mashiach, Kind David will build the Third Temple in Jerusalem and it WILL NOT be built before that time:

    Zec 6:12-13 "Then speak to him [Joshua], saying, 'Thus says ETERNAL of hosts, saying: Behold, the man [Kind David] whose name is the BRANCH! From his place [in the grave], he shall branch out, and he shall build the Temple of ETERNAL. Yes, he shall build the Temple of ETERNAL. He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule on his throne. So he shall be a priest [Elijah] on His throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both."'

    The Third Temple will be a physical Temple, and then after it is built ETERNAL states He will dwell there:

    Ezek. 43:7 "And He said to me, `Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the Children of Israel forever. No more shall the House of Israel defile My righteous Name, they nor their kings, by their harlotry or with the carcasses of their kings on their high places.'"

    The English word "dwell" in verse seven is from the Hebrew word 7 "shakan" and means to reside or permanently stay. Note the resemblance to the word "Shekinah."

    Thus, ETERNAL will put His Shekinah Glory into this Third Temple and He will dwell there, among His people forever. Another scripture that states the same is: Haggai 2:1-5 "In the seventh month, on the twenty-first of the month, the word of ETERNAL came by Haggai the prophet, saying: 'Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying: Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing? Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says ETERNAL; 'and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,' says ETERNAL, 'and work; for I am with you,' says ETERNAL of hosts. 'According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!'"

    That verse is saying that although the Shekinah Glory of the ETERNAL left the first physical Temple and it will not be back until the Third-the final Temple is built. He states My Spirit remains among you fear not! Therefore, we do have access to ETERNAL and His Righteous Spirit now, today. Then again, our CREATOR promises peace:

    Haggai 2:6-9 "For thus says ETERNAL of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land. And I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this Temple with Glory,' says ETERNAL of Hosts. The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says ETERNAL of Hosts. 'The Glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says ETERNAL of Hosts. 'And in this place I will give peace,' says ETERNAL of Hosts."

    There will come a day when both Houses of Israel will be at peace, when the ETERNAL will again dwell among His people. However, that is yet a ways off, because before the destruction and regathering of Israel, a work is being done in the end-time: A work that is dedicated to working for the reuniting of Israel. A work that will tell Israel who they are and what their sins are; in hope they will repent. For ETERNAL in speaking to Solomon about the first Temple has stated:

    2 Chron 7:12-14 (TLB) "One night ETERNAL appeared to Solomon and told him, 'I have heard your prayer and have chosen this Temple as the place where I want you to sacrifice to me. If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust swarms to eat up all of your crops, or if I send an epidemic among you. 14 Then if My people will humble themselves and pray, and search for Me, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land. I will listen, wide awake, to every prayer made in this place. For I have chosen this Temple and sanctified it to be My home forever; My eyes and My heart shall always be here."

    The Third Temple: Blueprint for War?

    "Simulation" Altar

    JERUSALEM, Aug 8, 1997 (AFP) - While Jews mourn the destruction of their Second Temple by the Romans in 70 A.D., Jewish extremists are planning to rebuild the structure on its former site where Islam's third holiest shrine now stands.

    The incense, prayers and vines for sacred wine are ready for the "messianic era, when peace will reign throughout the earth," said activist and lawyer Baruch Ben Yossef, who works in a chic neighborhood just outside Jerusalem.

    According to Jewish tradition, rebuilding the Temple will hasten the coming of the messiah.

    But before they can achieve universal peace, the extremist faithful are prepared for a final battle because reconstruction of the Temple would mean the destruction of the 1,300-year -old Al-Aqsa mosque complex.

    The Moslems built on the Temple ruins the complex which includes the Dome of the Rock, the place from which the Prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven in the seventh century, according to Moslem tradition.

    "It's like an army. We must train to be ready when war breaks out," Ben Yossef said.

    "The first stage is to pray en masse in the complex, then to demand the building of the Temple," he said.

    Ben Yossef told AFP he organizes an annual meeting of the "builders of the Third Temple" in Israel which more than a thousand people attend. "Seven years ago, there were only 30 of us," he said.

    A huge golden chandelier has already been made in the United States and future high priests are able to train for animal sacrifices on a "simulation" altar near the Dead Sea.

    "An architect has even drawn up a plan for Jerusalem involving new parking lots for the millions of pilgrims who will come for the Passover sacrifices," Ben Yossef said.

    The extremists have come into conflict with the Moslem authorities who manage the mosque complex, the Israeli chief rabbinate, whose position is that Jews may not pray there, and the Israeli police, who have formally banned them from the site.

    The rabbinate has launched a campaign against Jewish prayer at the site ahead of Tisha B'Av, the saddest day in the Jewish calender which commemorates the Second Temple's destruction and falls on Tuesday.

    "It is forbidden to ascend the Temple Mount because of the risk of desecration" of the Second Temple's holy of holies, where the ark was kept, a statement from the chief rabbinate said.

    A Jewish extremist, Yitzhak Yallouz, said: "The leaders are afraid of the international community's reaction. They don't dare to tell the world that the site is ours."

    Yallouz is buying stones cut in the Negev desert with donations and stockpiling them for use in the Temple's reconstruction.

    The former graphic designer from Paris firmly believes in the "miracle" of the Third Temple.

    "God will provide the finishing touches. When I am involved with the stones, I feel that something is moving in heaven," he said, pointing to four flagstones stored in his trailer at the Kokhav Yaakov settlement in the West Bank.

    He calculated that he will need six million such stones.

    While waiting for the messiah, the extremists go to the complex along with tourists, and are regularly questioned by the police.

    "I go there to show a Jewish presence. But incognito, with sunglasses and a hat," said Fievel Handler, a former hippie from the US state of Minnesota.

    The Moslem authorities do not rule out the risk of confrontation over the holy site.

    "I view the actions of these extremists with total seriousness," Hassan Tahbub, the minister of Moslem property or Waqf, told AFP.

    "But I am sure that the government is wiser than they are and is not seeking to unleash a battle whose end no one can predict," he said.

    Israelis on the Alert for Apocalyptic Cult Violence

    Jewish extremists plot to blow up Al Aqsa mosque

    Israeli experts fear of apocalyptic holy war if Jewish extremists succeeded to bomb the mosque

    January 08, 2001


    - Israeli experts say they fear Jewish fundamentalists are plotting to blow up mosques on a holy site at the heart of the Israeli-Arab conflict and could spark an apocalyptic holy war if they succeed.

    Blowing up Al Aqsa could imperil Israel’s existence

    '... if a Jewish group bombed the mosques the Muslim world would declare a war on Israel.'

    In a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak made public this week, former Shin Bet secret service chief Carmi Gillon and former police commissioner Assaf Hefetz warned that an extremist strike "would likely lead to all-out war and unleash destructive forces that would imperil Israel’s existence." Control of Muslim’s holy shrines in Al-Haram Al-Sharif, Al Aqsa mosque compound, (or the so-called Temple Mount to Jews) lies at the core of tensions between Israelis and Palestinians and is one of the most divisive elements in a new US peace plan.

    The blueprint forwarded by US President Bill Clinton would reportedly give Palestinians control over the upper section of the compound and its mosques, while Israel would retain control over the “Western Wall” below and the underground section.

    Fears that Israel is on the brink of ceding sovereignty over Judaism’s holiest site, the third most sacred in Islam, is galvanizing extremists, according to the Keshev Center for the Protection of Democracy in Israel.

    A new report by the center found tens of thousands of people, many with convictions for "violent, ultra-nationalist activity," had recently been active in Temple Mount groups.

    Result a “Total apocalypse”

    "These Temple Mount lovers want ideologically and practically to build the third Jewish Temple where the mosques now stand," Keshev director Yizhar Be’er said.

    "The result would be a total apocalypse because if a Jewish group bombed the mosques the Muslim world would declare a war on Israel," he said, adding that Jewish extremists had been helped with financial backing from fundamentalist Christians.

    According to Jewish claims, King Solomon built the First Temple at the site 3,000 years ago. A second temple was built on its ruins centuries later and was destroyed by the Romans in AD 70. Some extremists maintain only a third temple on the spot will herald the Kingdom of God.

    Keshev said at least 10 groups as working to bring about the third temple, including the "Small Sanhedrin" organization.

    Keshev maintains the group meets regularly in Jerusalem’s Old City where it plans how to bring about a religious state. He says that activists practice sacrificial slaughter in a West Bank settlement as part of preparations for a new temple.

    A spokeswoman from the Mitzpe Yericho settlement rejected the accusation. "People here study theory about Temple practices. They are not doing anything and they are not sacrificing. (The claim) is funny," she said.

    Rabbis warn against concessions

    Israeli Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau and other leading rabbis have said that no Jew has the right to make concessions over the Temple Mount.

    Former security chiefs Gillon and Hefetz warned that the rabbinic calls could be "interpreted as permission to attack the mosques on the Temple Mount" by extremists seeking to avenge the deaths of Jews killed by Palestinians in recent violence.

    Such fears were rejected by “Western Wall” Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, who told Israeli radio on Sunday that people taking the law into their own hands were "not part of Judaism and no rabbi would permit this".

    But even secular Israelis believe ceding the site is one concession too many. An opinion poll in Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper last month showed 57 percent opposed transferring the so-called Temple Mount, even if Israel kept the “Western Wall” below.

    Fourteen weeks of the Palestinian Intifada in which some 333 Palestinians have been killed, have strengthened the resolve of Jewish activists who see the conflict as part of a divine master plan.

    "Events today are a part of the end of time and battle of nations after which will come God’s judgment of all the enemies of Israel," said Gershon Salomon, leader of the Temple Mount Faithful that wants to build the third Jewish temple.

    Gershom Gorenberg, author of "The End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount," said political leaders must be sensitive to both sides.

    "For politicians to ignore the fears, even if they seem irrational and unjustified, is like sticking a claustrophobic in a box. It’s dangerous political blindness," he said.

    Background Info

    Long history of attempts to destroy Al Aqsa

    Following the Israeli capture of East Jerusalem in 1967, Israel announced it would respect the status quo of the religious sites in Jerusalem. At that same time, however, a movement began among religious nationalists in Israel to gain a foothold on the Haram al-Sharif in order to build a new temple there on what they claim is the site of the destroyed first and second Jewish temples.

    In 1969, an Australian set fire to Al Aqsa’s southeastern wall. Though linked to messianic groups, the man was declared insane and deported.

    There has been a serious growth in right-wing religious nationalism in Israel over the past 30 years. Settlements are built on biblical sites and religious rationales employed by the right wing to justify political policies that violate international law.

    In the 1970s extremist groups devoted to retaking the so-called Temple Mount began a campaign of provocation and violence against the Al-Haram Al-Sharif, including the digging of tunnels, attempts to enter the area by force and, increasingly, efforts to bomb the two mosques. Between 1978 and 1982, the Waqf documented 200 acts of desecration and provocation on or near the Haram al-Sharif by Israeli extremists.

    In 1982, Allan Goodman, an Israeli soldier with an American passport, charged into the Haram Al-Sharif, spraying worshippers with gunfire, killing two and wounding 30.

    In the early 1980s, the Haram Al-Sharif was seriously targeted for destruction by Israeli underground terrorist groups. In January 1984, a terror cell was arrested while trying to scale the walls around Al-Aqsa carrying arms and explosives. Several months later, members of a larger cell were arrested as they placed bombs under Arab buses in Jerusalem

    The massacre of 17 unarmed Palestinian civilians and the wounding of hundreds more by Israeli soldiers at the site in 1990 was sparked by a group called “The Temple Mount Faithful,” who were marching to set a cornerstone for the building of a temple on the site of Islam’s third holiest shrine.

    In 1969, 14 Waqf properties were damaged by Israeli digging in the area. In 1971, a tunnel partially collapsed the Rabat Kurd building on the Mount. Three years later, serious cracks were discovered in the wall of Al-Juwhariya School due to tunneling. Other tunnels dug by extremist groups to get near the Mount to pray have caused damage and clashes in Jerusalem in the past.

    Recent history shows that the actions of extremist groups on all sides can undermine the stability of the entire region. Mix provocation by religious zealots with deep frustration over the lack of progress in the peace process and there is little wonder that the West Bank and Gaza turned back so quickly into a killing zone.

    Officials: Jewish extremists may crash plane on Temple Mount
    By Jonathan Lis, Yuval Yoaz and Nadav Shragai

    Israeli security officials have recently become increasingly concerned that right-wing extremists might be plotting an attack on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to derail Israel's planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. The Shin Bet security service and the police are preparing for a number of possible terror attack scenarios at the sacred Old City site, Israeli security sources said on Saturday night.

    Speaking on the Channel Two "Meet the Press" program yesterday, Public Security Minister Tzachi Hanegbi confirmed that the security establishment had identified rising intent among right-wing extremists to carry out a Temple Mount attack.

    "There is no information about specific individuals, because the Shin Bet and police would not let them continue [with their plot]," said Hanegbi. "But there are troubling indications of purposeful thinking, and not detached philosophy... There is a danger that [extremists] would make use of the most explosive site, in the hope that a chain reaction would bring about the destruction of the peace process."

    Security sources on Saturday night said possible actions included an attempt to crash a drone packed with explosives on the Temple Mount, or a manned suicide attack with a light aircraft during mass Muslim worship on the Mount. Other possibilities include an attempt by right-wing extremists to assassinate a prominent Temple Mount Muslim leader, perhaps from the Waqf Islamic trust.

    Yehuda Etzion, one of the leaders of a plot in the early 1980s to blow up the mosques on the Temple Mount, said Sunday that blowing up the Dome of the Rock, the gilded mosque at the center of the compound, was a "worthy" goal, but that it was not the proper way to fight the disengagement initiative.

    "Losing one's patience after so many years of distortion is something understandable," Etzion told Army Radio. "Is this a worthy act? First of all, it is worthy. On the other hand, it is unworthy as an act to thwart the disengagement."

    Israeli security sources speculate that the assassination scenario might be chosen, even though it would not cause mass injury or damage to the Al-Aqsa mosque or the Golden Dome shrine. The aim of the Temple Mount attack conspiracy, they said, would be to carry out a visible provocation that sparked violent confrontation in the territories.

    Due to stringent security routines at the Temple Mount, Israeli security officials said Saturday, right-wing extremists would find it virtually impossible to use conventional routes to penetrate the site with explosives. Hence, the possibility of a large bomb being planted at one of the Muslim holy sites is "a lower-level possibility."

    Saturday's disclosures about possible Temple Mount terror plans were preceded in recent months by a number of troubling indications. Nine months ago a suspect in a Jewish underground terror group affair, Shahar Dvir-Zeliger, told authorities a prominent West Bank settler activist had planned a Temple Mount attack. Zeliger cited two other names of West Bank settlers, suggesting the two were involved in the Temple Mount attack conspiracy.

    Last Thursday, the Temple Mount Faithful group petitioned the High Court, asking to be given clearance to go up to the Holy Site for prayers later this week for Tisha B'Av.

    WWI 40 million - WWII 88 million - Rev 9:16 - WWIII - 200 million

    I am not a preacher, nor a theologian. I am a seer, a visionary. I'm don't feel that I'm good at analyzing what I see many times because what I see is frequently so symbolic it takes days of study and discussions with other people to figure out the possible meaning of my visions. Sometimes I don't recognize the event specifically until after it has happened, such as the Oklahoma bombing, and the death of Princess Diana.

    This time, there can be no doubt of what I saw. Though very strange, there was no doubt to what I was seeing and what it means, though I couch that statement carefully because I do not know the timing of it.

    There were actually two separate events, one right after the other, and because they are so strange, one might laugh and say, "That woman is just nuts." But before you say that, you might get out your Bible and take a look at the book of Revelation. Turn to Chapter 9. My visions fit into Chapter 9 verse 16.

    While I looked up the verses that fit my vision, my eyes strayed to Chapter 8 and I saw there verses that fit events that we have already gone through in the last few years it seems, events that are going on now, and events predicted for later this year.

    I almost stopped breathing while I read these verses. It was like seeing reality in my mind's eye . . . remembering the television shows of recent days, . . . remembering the prophecies of Nostradamus, and other prophets we've seen and heard of more recently.

    Since we are on the Internet a great deal of time, we are more aware of events than most people who don't have computers. Our friends keep us informed of what is going on with the sun, the moon, Mars, the stars, and the solar system. These events going on as we speak seem almost more important than daily events like the weather, the recent heat wave, politics, the ending of the Kosovar/Serbian war, etc. As we speak, there is threat of war between Pakistan and India. Israel and Lebanon are also warring with each other. Iraq is working towards nuclear capability and other weapons of mass destruction that are biological and chemical. There is threat of nuclear war every day, and yet these sky events are even more threatening because they affect everyone.

    Now, let me get back to my visions of the early morning of July 3, 1999, only mere days before the prophecies of Nostradamus are due to come true according to those who study them. These visions take us to the book of Revelations, the most worried about book of the bible, the most mysterious and the most misunderstood.

    I almost hesitate to put these visions into words. I don't even want to write them down . . . maybe if I don't write them down, they can't come true. But, I know I am not the only one seeing these visions. God and the angels don't give these messages to only one person. They are given to many, and we see over and over how dreams and visions are repeated. We gather them together . . . the ominous portents of events coming which we don't want to believe . . . events that keep pointing out one by one the verses of Revelation that are coming true in our own time.

    We write down these dreams, keep them in a files, go on with our daily lives . . . work, eat, sleep, dream, work, eat, sleep, dream, just like everyone else. Life has to be lived. Families must be raised; children protected and disciplined; loved ones gathered together. Tell them they are loved. Hug the children. We don't know if and when we will ever see them again. Events going on in the world now don't leave us with trust that life is normal. Life is not normal. One can't even send a child to school and know that they will return alive. Life is full of uncertainty. Life is scary. But, we must continue to put one foot in front of the other and carry on. Life is to be lived . . . one day at a time.


    I lay in the bed in the dark . . . awake, yet seeing somehow, thousands of white horses, with warriors dressed in white, riding in straight rows, like on a road, eight wide. They were riding down the front of my face from the top of my head. I could not recognize faces, nor race . . . it was all white.


    I lay in the bed in the dark . . . awake, yet seeing somehow, thousands, upon thousands of white horses, with warriors dressed in white, riding eight abreast in straight rows, like on a road. It was as if these horses were on two screens of television, one screen on each of my thighs, moving upward from my knees towards my body. These horses and riders too, were not recognizable as any particular race of people. Everything was white. I was afraid to move . . . afraid that if I moved that it would all disappear. Yet, it went on and on . . . endlessly. Finally, I had to move. However, it didn't end when I rolled over. The thousands of white horses with their riders continued to ride upward from my knees towards my body. There was no stopping them.




    "And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them."

    (This is 200 million)



    The beginning of Chapter Nine talks about a war lasting for 5 months and a star falling from heaven unto the earth. That was the fifth angel blowing its trumpet. In verse 12 we see this: "One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. (13) And the sixth angel sounded and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God. (14) saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. (15) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men."

    In John's vision, the horses had breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone; and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

    Verse 18 says, "By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. (19) For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails, for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt."

    (20) "And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils and idols of gold and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood; which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: (21) Nether repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. "


    The Bible tells us that one massive army will come from the North . . . Russia, a second army will come from the East . . . China. The third army will come from Ethiopia , Israel, Saudi Arabia, Great Britain, and the U.S.A.

    The war will take place in Israel. The book of Ezekiel, Chapter 39 tells us in numerous verses that the war will be there. It couldn't have happened prior to 1948 because there was no country of Israel until then. There has for many centuries been an anti-semetic force. Jews are leaving Russia by the thousands and moving to the United States. Remember the Holocaust! In the United States, there is tremendous anti-semetism by many groups.

    This will be a nuclear war. See 2nd Peter 3:10 - "The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Nothing else can cause this kind of heat and destruction but nuclear or atomic weapons.

    The judgement of Fire: A sea of glass:

    Psalms 97 (1)"The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof, (2) clouds and darkness are round about him; righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne (3) A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. (4) His lightnings enlightened the world; the earth saw, and trembled. (5) The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. (6) The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
    Isaiah 66:15 - "For behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. (16) For by fire and by his sword will the lord plead with all flesh; and the slain of the Lord shall be many. (17) They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord."
    Ezek. 20:47 "And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree; the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein. (48) And all flesh shall see that I the Lord have kindled it; it shall not be quenched."
    Joel 2: 1-11 - (1) Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; (2) A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains; a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. (3) A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea and nothing shall escape them. (4) The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. (5) Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. (6) Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. (7) They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: (8) Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. (9) They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. (10) The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. (11) And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army; for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"
    Mal 4:1 - "For, behold the day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble, and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch."
    Rev. 8:7 - "The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. (8) And the second angel sounded and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea; and the third part of the sea became blood. (9) And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. (10) And the third angel sounded; and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; (11) And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. (12) And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. (13) And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!"
    Rev. 9:18 - "By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. (19) For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

    Where will the armies come from?

    Joel 2: 20 and 31 - "But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
    Daniel 11:13 - "For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches." (The entire chapter)
    Daniel 11:40-45 - "And at the same time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass away. (41) He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. (42) He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape. (43) But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans, and the Ethiopians, shall be at his steps. (44) But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. (45) And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
    Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
    38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
    Ezekiel - 39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
    39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: 39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. 39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 39:5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. 39:7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
    Ezekiel 38 and 39

    Jacob's Trouble:

    Jer: 30:3 - "For, lo, the days will come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord, and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. (4) And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. (5) For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. (6) Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? (7) Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it, (8) For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him.
    Rom. 11:26- "And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob. (27) For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
    Zeph. 1:14 - "The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord; the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. (15) That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness. (16) A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. (17) And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord; and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. (18) Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord's wrath but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy; for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.


    Dan 12:1 - "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. (2) And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (3) And they that be wise shall sine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (4) But thou O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. (5) Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. (6) And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? (7) And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand, and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. (8) And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? (9) And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end."
    Zech: 12: 2-3 -"Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. (3) And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (4) In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. (5) And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God. (6) In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left; and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. (7) The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. (8) In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them. (9) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
    Joel 1:3 - 10 - "Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. (4) That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten. (5) Awake ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine because of the 'new wine' for it is cut off from your mouth. (6) For a nation is come up upon my land, strong and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. (7) He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
    Math. 24: - 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 24:25 Behold, I have told you before. 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:28 For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    Rev: 6 - 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 6:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondsman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
    Rev. 9-18 "By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths, (19) For there power is in their mouth, and in their tails, for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads and with them they do hurt.

    Greatest defeat in history

    Eze. 39-(1) - "Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tybal: (2) And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel. (3) And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of they right hand. (4) Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. (5) Thou shalt fall upon the open field; for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God. (6) And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.
    1Thess 5: "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you, (2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. (3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction shall come against them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
    Eze. 39 (12) " And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea; and it shall stop the nose of the passengers; and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog. (12) And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying them, that they may cleanse the land.

    When will this happen?

    Ezekiel 38: 8 -"After many days thou shalt be visited; in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them."
    Ezekiel 38:16 - "And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, it will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. "
    Daniel 11:40 - "And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over."
    II Thess: 2 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. "

    All of God's word is NOW being fulfilled. -

    Christ will return AFTER Armageddon and AFTER we have 10 nations in the European economic community.

    This battle will take place in the middle of the 7 years. It will be at the 3 1/2 year mark. A Peace pact will be made with Israel - in the midst of the 7 years, this peaceful leader will break his covenant and break his treaties: 38:11 . When they say they have peace and safety, then the war will break out. This is the tribulation period. Rev. 3:10 -

    How can we escape? -

    Rapture - the snatching away -

    1st Thess. 4:16 -18 - "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (18) Wherefore we comfort one another with these words.
    1Cor: 15:51 - "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be change, (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised, incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    Rev: 4:1 - "After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which much be hereafter.

    Here is a little something to chew on.
    In this dream, I am visited by my aunt Doris who is deceased many years. I don't think I've ever dreamed about her before.
    1-14-07 - DREAM - I was in the living room of a house. We were each sitting at a desk and working on taxes. A lawyer came in to help Joe with the taxes. He was wearing a yellow shirt and light tan suit. It came to me that he hadn't changed clothes in 4 days, so I tried to nail my little blue calculator to the desk so he wouldn't steal it.
    Just then, my aunt Doris came in. I was really excited to see her. I wanted to tell her about my Mom and how well she is doing. (She is also deceased- a year now)
    She said, "Let's go into the kitchen so we can talk." I was so anxious to tell her about my Mom, I jumped up and followed her to the kitchen.
    The kitchen was a mess. I obviously hadn't cleaned recently, and I grabbed a rag from the counter and got it wet and started to wipe off the kitchen table.
    Aunt Doris sat down at the clean end of the table, while I was still wiping up food crumbs and said, "Next week is the start of Gog - Ma Gog. My church doesn't know exactly which day, but they wanted you to know because they think you are the best psychic they have ever seen."
    I didn't know what to say. I didn't even know she went to church or which church if she did attend church.
    She continued speaking, and said something about a Mr. Steuben being involved.She may have given me his first name also but if she did, I didn't catch it.
    I noticed then, there was a row of about 12 black stick-pens laying side by side on the table. I didn't move them but wiped the table around them.
    I started to tell her the dream I had right before she came to the house, but it came to me that the dream was not understandable to me, and it wouldn't interest her, so I let myself wake up in mid-sentence.
    End of dream

    The name Doris is probably used for a reason as is Mr. Steuben.
    Greek a dorian woman, of the sea , A Sharp Knife; Region of Ancient Greece ,

    DORIAN masculine form of DORIS or short form of ISIDORE or possibly form of DARIUS. The name was first used by writer Oscar Wilde.

    DORIS "of Doris" (Greek). Doris was a region of ancient Greece where the Dorian tribe settled. Doris was also the name of a minor Greek goddess of the sea

    Doris was a sea goddess in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys (who were also sea gods/goddesses). Doris had many, many sisters. She was the wife of the sea god Nereus, her half-brother. She had fifty daughters, called the Nereids. Doris was not one of the goddesses who lived on Mt. Olympus.


    I noticed that a von Steuben signed the Declaration of Independence and that fits the dream scenario as well.

    Re: Israel is Gog

    You see you right, almost about the location. But you don't realize one thing about it. The Khazars who converted to Judism and became the Ashkenazi Jews who make up 95 percent of the Jews today. They sat in the lands of Gog and Magog and latter after holding out against the Monguls where finally pushed north by the Muslims into the lands of Poland, Germany and Russia later to flee to the United States and what is now Israel. 5 million in Israel and 6 million in the United States. This is how these Jews are Gog and Magog.

    This is from Jewish sources.

    Jewish sources
    A letter in Hebrew dated AM 4746 (985–986) refers to "our lord David, the Khazar prince" who lived in Taman. The letter said that this David was visited by envoys from Kievan Rus to ask about religious matters — this could be connected to the Vladimir conversion which took place during the same time period. Taman was a principality of Kievan Rus around 988, so this successor state (if that is what it was) may have been conquered altogether. The authenticity of this letter, the Mandgelis Document, has however been questioned by such scholars as D. M. Dunlop.

    Abraham ibn Daud, a twelfth-century Spanish rabbi, reported meeting Khazar rabbinical students in Toledo, and that they informed him that the "remnant of them is of the rabbinic faith." This reference indicates that some Khazars maintained ethnic, if not political, autonomy at least two centuries after the sack of Atil.

    Petachiah of Ratisbon, a thirteenth-century rabbi and traveler, reported traveling through "Khazaria", though he gave few details of its inhabitants except to say that they lived amidst desolation in perpetual mourning.

    He further related:

    Whilst at Baghdad saw ambassadors from the kings of Meshech, for Magog (medieval Christian writers said that the Khazars lived in the land of Gog and Magog) is about ten days' journey from thence. The land extends as far as the Mountains of Darkness (a term often used to describe the Caucasus). Beyond the Mountains of Darkness are the sons of Jonadab, son of Rechab (an official in the court of King Josiah of Judah). To the seven kings of Meshech an angel appeared in a dream, bidding them to give up the laws and statutes, and to embrace the laws of Moses, son of Amram. If not, he threatened to lay waste their country. However, they delayed until the angel commenced to lay waste their country, when the kings of Meshech and all the inhabitants of their countries became proselytes, and they sent to the head of the academy (i.e., the Gaon of Sura or Pumbedita) a request to send them some disciples of the wise. Every disciple that is poor goes there to teach them the law and Babylonian Talmud. From the land of Egypt the disciples go there to study. He saw the ambassadors visit the grave of [the prophet] Ezekiel…"

    The account of the conversion of the "seven kings of Meshech" is extremely similar to the accounts of the Khazar conversion given in the Kuzari, and in King Joseph's Reply. It is possible that Meshech refers to the Khazars, or to some Judaized polity influenced by them. Arguments against this possibility include the reference to "seven kings" (though this, in turn, could refer to seven successor tribes or state micropolities).

    Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

    Off the top of my head-
    12 pens = 12 tribes of Israel
    I also found this:
    "Revelations tells of the end of the world, when Gog and Magog are let loose. Saint Augustine describes it in his book City of God as: "And when the thousand years are finished, Satan shall be loosed from his prison, and shall go out to seduce the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, and shall draw them to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea." This, then, is his purpose in seducing them, to draw them to this battle. For even before this he was wont to use as many and various seductions as he could continue. And the words "he shall go out" mean, he shall burst forth from lurking hatred into open persecution. For this persecution, occurring while the final judgment is imminent, shall be the last which shall be endured by the holy Church throughout the world, the whole city of Christ being assailed by the whole city of the devil, as each exists on earth. For these nations which he names Gog and Magog are not to be understood of some barbarous nations in some part of the world, whether the Getae and Massagetae, as some conclude from the initial letters, or some other foreign nations not under the Roman government. For John marks that they are spread over the whole earth, when he says, "The nations which are in the four corners of the earth," and he added that these are Gog and Magog. The meaning of these names we find to be, Gog, (a roof), Magog, (from a roof )- a house, as it were, and he who comes out of the house. They are therefore the nations in which we found that the devil was shut up as in an abyss, and the devil himself coming out from them and going forth, so that they are the roof, he from the roof. "

    The Jewish calendar has 12 months of 30 days each. As represented by the camp positions of the 12 tribes in Numbers 2, it is a reflection of the Zodiac. The basic idea is to make things on earth like those in Heaven. The New Jerusalem is based on the same pattern as expressed in Revelation 21.

    The New Jerusalem

    Rev 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

    Rev 21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

    Rev 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

    Rev 21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

    Rev 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

    Rev 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

    Rev 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

    Rev 21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

    Rev 21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

    Rev 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

    Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

    Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

    Rev 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

    Rev 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

    Rev 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

    Lost Tribes Of Israel Study Maps
    4 Volume Set (paper), 35,000 Word Text
    by Daniel R. Walsh
    Volume I: The Pre-Exodus Flights

    This volume examines the Zarahite reign in Egypt; they were known as Hyksos, which means the Shepherd Kings. It covers the flights of this Zarah Branch of Judah and the sailing Tribe of Dan to Greece, Troy, Spain, Britain, Ireland, etc. Particular attention is paid to the Hebrew voyages of Danaus, Cadmus, Chalcol, Darda, Brutus and Corineus, and the Danaans. Source material includes the ancient histories and legends of Egypt, Greece, Ireland, and Britain. The reader will learn that the greatest Grecian stories, such as Jason and the Argonauts and the famous Trojan War, actually involved descendants of these first groups of Israelites that left Egypt prior to the Exodus. This volume also contains a basic history of Jacob's Pillar, which is the Stone of Destiny used in British coronations.

    Volume II: Deportations By Assyria

    This volume introduces the reader to the House of Judah and the House of Israel. It examines the House of Israel's deportations to the Assyrian buffer zones. It covers their war with Urartu, their break away from the buffers, their conquests in Phrygia and Lydia, their arrival at Arsareth, Moesia, and Scythia, and their migrations to Scandinavia and Western Europe. Special attention is given to their changing names as discovered in the archives of Assyria, on the monuments of Persia, and in the writings of the ancient Greeks. Their names include Beth Khumri, Ghomri, Gimira, Cimmerians, Celts, Isaac, Isaaca, Iskuza, Sacae, Skuthae, Scythians, Germani, and Saxons.

    Volume III: Jeremiah's Journey

    Volume III examines the history of the House of Judah with King David's perpetual throne. It traces Jeremiah's journey to plant the Hebrew Princess Tea Tephi in Ireland, as found in Irish tales. It also takes a detailed look at the Hebrew Milesians that were in Egypt during the reigns of Pharoahs Psamtik I and Hophra. The reader will follow Gallam the Milesian from Scythia to Egypt, where he acquired the Hebrew Princess Scota; Gallam and Scota's voyage from Egypt to Spain; and the Milesian invasion of Ireland from Spain. The evidence will show that King David's dynasty survives today in Britain, with Jacob's Pillar.

    Volume IV: The Christian Connection

    This Volume examines Christ's connection to the divorced House of Israel. Using the histories and legends recorded in Southern France and Britain, the miracle voyage of Joseph of Arimathea, Mary Magdalene, Lazarus, etc. is traced from Caesarea in Palestine to the Lost Tribes living in Gaul. Joseph's journey to Glastonbury in England is shown on the map. The reader will also learn data on the Hebrew kings Bran, Caractacus, and Arviragus in the days when these famous Silures fought the Romans for control of Britain. The Apostle Paul's connection to the Silurian royal house of Caractacus, Claudia, and Linus is examined, along with Paul's mission and letters (Biblical Epistles) to the Lost Tribes. Paul's trip to Spain, Britain, Belgae, Helvetia, and Mount Julius is traced using clues found in the Sonnini Manuscript, which is a document known as the Lost Chapter of Acts.


    The 12 tribes of Israel were seeded into the DNA of the genome of all human creations. Is-Ra-El is not Hebrew. It is the knowing bestowed to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as: Is = The I Am Presence, Ra = the Greater Light, and El = the conversion of Light into matter.

    Numbers 24:2 - And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him.

    24:3 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

    24:4 He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open:

    24:5 How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, [and] thy tabernacles, O Israel!

    24:14 And now, behold, I go unto my people: come [therefore, and] I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days.

    24:15 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

    24:16 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, [which] saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open:

    24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

    24:18 - And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.

    24:19 - Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

    Specific names given in the Bible had cryptic meanings and the fact that she was known as the Tender Twig in the Bible, and as Tea Tephi in the Annals of the Irish Masters, signifies TT - connected with the Twin pillars of Moses - the Ark of the Covenant and Freemasonry. She was the young 'twig' of the vine of the House of David. [note: Moses was Ahkenaten; See: ]

    In the Bible the sister is not named, only mentioned as a princess; also in the Annals of the Irish Masters, she is not named. However, Scota, as mentioned earlier above, was the mother-in-law of Princess Tea Tephi Mor.
    Scota's son, Heremon/Eochaid/Heber, was of the tribe of Dan - the Tuatha de Danaan. There are many gods and goddesses of this tribe, bound up in Irish mythology, including the children of Don/Dan who were regarded as deities in the sky. Another of the gods of Dan, was Odin who is also Thor in Scandanavian mythology. 'Dan' in Danmark (Denmark) and Scandan... prescribe to where the tribe of Dan left their mark as they traveled towards the British Isles.

    Gog and Magog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Magog in Genesis

    The first occurrence of "Magog" in the Bible is in the "Table of Nations" in Genesis 10, where Magog is the eponymous ancestor of a people or nation (without any accompanying apocalyptic symbolism, or mention of Gog, although "Magog" may mean "the land of Gog"):

    2. The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras

    3. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. (Genesis 10:2-3)

    Gog and Magog in the Book of Revelation

    Gog and Magog are mentioned again in Revelation 20:7-8:

    7. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

    8. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (KJV)

    Here, Gog and Magog are identified as the nations in the four corners of the earth, and their attack is represented as an eschatological crisis after the Millennium, to be vanquished by divine intervention. The language of Gog and Magog's destruction is very similar to that of their mention in Ezekiel.

    In terms of extra-biblical Jewish tradition, Gog the 'prince' has been explained being one of the 70 national angels — of whom all except one, Michael (the guardian angel of Israel), are fallen angels. According to this interpretation, Gog is the angel of a nation called Magog (literally meaning "of Gog" or "from Gog"). Gog in this view represents an apocalyptic coalition of nations arrayed against Israel.

    Josephus identifies Magog with the Scythians, but this name seems to have been used generically in antiquity for a number of peoples north of the Black Sea.

    According to one modern theory of dispensationalist Biblical hermeneutics, Gog and Magog are supposed to represent Russia. The Scofield Reference Bible's notes to Ezekiel claim that "Meshech" is a Hebrew form of Moscow, and that "Tubal" represents the Siberian capital Tobolsk. During the Cold War this identification led Hal Lindsey to claim that the Soviet Union would play a major role in the End Times.

    Some legends of Hungarians and certain Celtic peoples say they are descendants of Magog. Poseidonius, for example, mentions that the Cimmerians, considered to be the original ancestors in Celtic traditions, were derived from gug and guas.

    This stopped Gog and Magog from threatening them. Contemporary scholars believe that this wall might be in the Caucasus Mountains at Dariel Pass.[4]

    Gog and Magog are also mentioned in the sayings of the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, as the sign of the nearness of the Doomsday, and that they will destroy the civilizations (The Books of Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Al Muslim). These reflect the Qur'anic prophecies:

    “ But when Gog and Magog are let loose and they rush headlong down every height (or advantage). Then will the True Promise shall draw near - (Qur'an 21:96-97)

    Gog and Magog as Ashkenazi Jews
    Islamic scholar Ibn Kathir, in his historical work, Al-Bidayah wa'l-Nihayah (The Beginning and the End) located the tribes of Gog and Magog between the Black Sea and the Caspian, stating that they refer to the Khazars.

    According to the Lord Mayor, the giants Gog and Magog are traditional guardians of the City of London, and images of them have been carried in the Lord Mayor's Show since the days of King Henry V.

    Gog Magog Hills
    The Gog Magog Hills are about three miles south of Cambridge, said to be the metamorphosis of the giant after being rejected by the nymph Granta (i.e. the River Cam).

    Gog and Magog in Ireland
    Works of Irish mythology, including the Lebor Gabála Érenn (the Book of Invasions), expand on the Genesis account of Magog as the son of Japheth and make him the ancestor to the Irish. His three sons were Baath, Jobhath, and Fathochta. Magog is regarded as the father of the Irish race, and the progenitor of the Scythians, as well as of numerous other races across Europe and Central Asia.

    Partholon, leader of the first group to colonize Ireland after the Deluge, was a descendant of Magog. The Milesians, or people of the 5th invasion of Ireland, were also descendants of Magog.

    The Coming War of Gog and Magog, an Islamic Invasion?

    by Jennifer Rast

    Contender Ministries

    Ezekiel 38 through 39 tells of a future invasion of Israel by a vast coalition of nations that surround it. As we read the headlines in the newspapers of today, and witness the conflict in the Middle East, it's not hard to imagine that this invasion prophesied over 2600 years ago, could be fulfilled in our lifetime. Ezekiel 36-37 predicts a gathering of the Jews to the nation of Israel, which will be followed by this massive invasion. For 19 centuries the Jewish people were scattered throughout the world, and until May 14, 1948 there was no nation of Israel to invade. With the nation of Israel now a reality, the stage seems set for the war that will usher in the tribulation and the rise of the Antichrist; a war that will end with the destruction of Israel's enemies by God Himself, and lead to the signing of a peace treaty with the Antichrist.

    As you read Ezekiel 38 and 39, it isn't just the creation of the nation of Israel that makes this prophecy seem likely to be fulfilled in the near future. The nations that God tells us will form this coalition against Israel seem more likely now than perhaps ever before to form just such an alliance. To understand the prophecies of Ezekiel about this future invasion, it's important to understand who the players will be.

    There are many theories as to who will join in this future invasion of Israel. Before going through a list of the individual nations, I'll list some of the more common theories you'll hear when studying the prophecies from Ezekiel 38.

    Ezekiel 38:1-6 The word of the Lord came to me; Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: 'This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army - your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops - the many nations with you.'

    1. Hashemite Kingdom Theory: The Islamic Nations will come against Israel either by an Iraqi-led, Jordanian led, or Turkish led coalition. The enemy from the north refers to the areas of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq. These Islamic nations make up the lands occupied by Magog, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech and Tubal.

    2. Caucus Theory: Gog and Magog are the Arab nations in an alliance with the Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union. This theory leaves out most of Russia, and includes only the southern part.

    3. All Europe theory: Gog and Magog are the sons of Japeth thus the originators of the European races. Gog and Magog therefore indicates all of Europe. This is not a widely held theory and I could find little support for it.

    4. Russian Theory: The Hebrew word 'rosh' in verse 3 is identified with Russia, 'Tubal' with Tiblisi or Tobolsk and 'Meshech' with Moscow, therefore Gog and Magog refers to Russia. This is one of the most commonly held views and is based on a different interpretation of the Hebrew word Rosh (used as a noun rather than adjective), similarities in the pronunciation of words, and the Greek translation of Rosh referring to a tribe of people found in what is now Russia.

    5. Indo-European Theory: Gog and Magog include the nations descending from Japheth: Russia, the Caucasus(Turkey), Iraq, and the Islamic republics of Central Asia. The coalition is an alliance of Arab nations, Muslim republics, Georgia, southern Russia and the Black sea area.

    These are some of the theories you will find if you do any research into the prophecies of Ezekiel 38. You may also find interpretations that are a combination of these, and in fact, I tend to find more evidence for a version of the Indo-European and Caucacus Theory.

    Before looking at the participants of this invasion in more detail, it's important to understand that the war described in Ezekiel 38 is not the same as the war that will come at the end of the tribulation when Jesus returns to defeat the Antichrist and establish his millennial kingdom. How do we know this? The war at the end of the tribulation, known as Armageddon, is a world war. Revelation tells us that this battle will involve all nations. The war described in Ezekiel includes specific nations that invade Israel. Also, Armageddon is at the climax of the tribulation, while the war described in Ezekiel comes well before then.

    Ezekiel 38:1-7 gives 10 names as participants in the invasion of Israel that will follow the regathering of the Jews to their homeland. First mentioned, is the land of Magog. The most common identity for Magog is in Central Asia. The Jewish historian Josephus said, "Magog founded the Magogians, called Scythians by the Greeks. Scythians were a nomadic tribe who inhabited the ancient territory from Central Asia across the southern part of ancient Russia." Today this area is inhabited by the former Soviet Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and possibly northern parts of Afghanistan. All of these nations that make up the land of Magog have one thing in common - Islam. Militant Islam has been on the rise in these countries since the fall of the Soviet Union, when Islam no longer had to be practiced secretly. Radical Islamic groups such as the Islamic Renaissance Party, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, and Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islam are working to reunite central Asian nations and ultimately the entire Muslim world. It is from this part of the world that a leader will arise to bring together a great coalition of nations to invade Israel.

    Probably the most debated verse is Ezekiel 38:3. There are two main views on the identity of the Nations God is referring to in this verse. I'll list both here, and let the reader decide which sounds most reasonable.

    Rosh as Russia

    Some versions of the Bible translate the Hebrew word 'rosh' in verse 3 as a noun referring to a place in Russia. The least credible support for this view is that Rosh sounds like the modern-day name Russia and Meshech sounds like Moscow. In this translation they treat rosh as a proper name. The Greek translation translates Rosh as the proper name Ros. Because the ancient Sarmations were known as the Ras, Rashu, and Rus and inhabited Rasapu which is now Southern Russia, some feel this verse points to Russia as the prince of Rosh. Another support sited for this view is that verse 6 and 15 say the invasion will come from remote parts of the north, and Russia is more remote.

    Rosh as chief

    Other versions of the Bible translate 'rosh' as an adjective. The argument here is that in the Massoretic text the words 'chief prince' carry the accents Tiphha and Zaqeph-gadol. The Tiphha appears under the resh of the Hebrew word 'rosh'; the Zaqeph-gadol appears on top of the sin of the Hebrew word 'nish'. The Tiphha to the right, underneath the initial consonant of the world 'rosh', or chief, is prepositive and does not mark the tone syllable. The world 'nish' or prince has the accent Zaqeph-gadol which is disjunctive and indicates a pause. So, verse three would read:

    "Behold, I am against thee, o Gog, the prince, {pause} chief of Meshech and Tubal"

    Rather than:

    "Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal."

    Here 'rosh' is translated head or chief as it is 423 other times in the Old Testament.

    In short, if you believe 'rosh' should be translated as a proper noun you may find the interpretation that Russia will be a part of this coalition more reasonable. If you believe 'rosh' should be an adjective here, you need only concern yourself with who Meshech and Tubal are. I tend to have a problem with the "it sounds like Russia" theory, and find the translation of rosh as an adjective more believable, but to each his own.

    Meshech and Tubal in verses 2 and 6, were the names of the 6th and 5th sons of Japheth, the son of Noah (Gen. 10:2). Ezekiel 27:13 also mentions Meshech and Tubal as trading partners with Tyre (Modern Lebanon). It's likely that Meshech and Tubal refer to the ancient Moshi/Mushki and Tubalu/Tibareni who dwelled in the area around, primarily south of, the Black and Caspian Sea in Ezekiel's day. Today these nations would be in the modern country of Turkey, parts of Southern Russia and Northern Iran. All areas with a Muslim majority.

    Verse 6 adds Gomer and Beth-Togarmah to the coalition. "Gomer" was the first son of Japheth. The Gomerites were the ancient Cimmerians, expelled in 700 B.C. from the southern steppes of Russia into what is today Turkey. "Togarmah" is the 3rd son of Gomer and beth at the beginning of the name is the Hebrew word for 'house' or 'place of'. In Ezekiel's time there was a city in Cappodocia (Modern Turkey) known as Tegarma, Tagarma, Til-garimmu, and Takarama.

    The possibility that four of the names mentioned in Ezekiel are now in Turkey makes a pretty strong argument for Turkey being a part of the invasion of Israel. Current circumstances in that country also lend this view some credibility. Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, Turkey has been gaining inroads into Central Asia (Magog). It is also linked to Central Asia both ethnically and linguistically, and has a growing number of political parties that support opposition to Israel, establishment of a Turkish Islamic Republic, and the worldwide rule of Islam.

    Verse 5 brings three more names into the mix. God tells us that "Persia, Cush and Put will be with them".

    Persia is a pretty easy one. In 539 B.C. the Persians conquered the city of Babylon. You only need look at a map of the ancient Persian Empire to see that it was centered in the nation known today as Iran. In fact Iran was called Persia until 1935 when it was changed to Iran and then to the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 during the Iranian Revolution. It's no secret that Iran is an archenemy of Israel and the West, and a supporter of the Palestinians. They are actively working to get other Arab countries to change camps in their cooperation with the U.S. and Israel.

    The ancient kingdom of Cush in Ezekiels time was the land just south of Egypt on the Nile River. Today this land is occupied by Sudan. Sudan is home to the National Islamic Front, is ruled by an Islamic military dictatorship, a strong supporter of Iraq, home to Osama bin Landen from 1991-1996, and harbors countless Islamic terrorist groups. Sudan would easily fit into the coalition as it is already close allies with Iran, trading military supplies for docking rights on the Red Sea shipping routes.

    Ancient Put was the land just west of Egypt, or what is today Libya. Libya is another sponsor of terrorism, and openly refuses to recognize Israel's right to even exist. When the coalition against Israel is formed, Libya won't have to be asked twice to join.

    Verse 6 adds "and many people with you." The nations listed specifically are all somewhat distant from Israel. By adding "and many people with you", God may have been indicating that those nations and peoples in closer proximity to Israel will join the Jihad. Other nations that might join the alliance are Iraq, Syria, Jordon, and Egypt. All of them are Islamic nations, and all of them would not hesitate to support the destruction of Israel were the opportunity to join such a vast coalition presented to them.

    Below is a list of the nations that are listed in Ezekiel as Israel's last-days enemies:





    Russia or Chief

    Ancient Sarmatians known as Rashu, Rasapu, Ros, and Rus.


    Translated as the adjective Chief.


    Central Asia

    Ancient Scythians - Islamic southern republics of the former Soviet Union with a population of 60 million Muslims. This territory could include modern Afghanistan.



    Ancient Muschki and Musku in Cilicia and Cappadocia.


    Turkey (also southern Russia and Iran)

    Ancient Tubalu in Cappadocia.



    Name changed from Persia to Iran in 1935.

    Ethiopia (Cush)


    Ancient Cush, south of Egypt.



    Ancient Put, west of Egypt.



    Ancient Cimmerians - from the seventh century to first century B.C. in central/western Anatolia.



    Til-garimmu - between ancient Carchemish and Haran (southern Turkey).

    Many peoples with you

    Other Islamic nations

    Possibly Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt

    The reasons God gives us for the enemies' invasion of Israel are further proof that the attack will be an Islamic invasion.

    The first reason God gives for the invasion in Ezekiel 38 is a desire by the coalition to cover the Jewish land and wipe them off the face of the earth. Urged on by a hatred of the Jewish people they will seek to destroy them and the nation of Israel. This is the stated goal today of almost every Islamic nation in the Middle East. The only nations not currently in a declared state of war with Israel are Egypt, Turkey, and Jordan, yet they would certainly be glad to see Israel eliminated if presented with a willing leader and an opportunity to rid the Middle East of Islam's archenemy.

    God tells us that they also come to "seize plunder…and to capture great spoil". Many verses in the Quran advocated plundering for the benefit of Islam and there are several instances of this war tactic throughout the history of Muhammad's life. In fact, it is a common theme in his teachings.

    This invasion of Israel and attack on the Jewish people will indeed be a Jihad, but it will also be the final Jihad.

    Ezekiel 38:13 "Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, 'Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?'"

    As this invasion develops, a few countries will make a lame protest. This isn't hard to believe when you look at the indifference most nations display as Israel is repeatedly attacked by terrorists.

    The specific nations who question Gog's actions are "Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish". Sheba and Dedan are not hard to identify. These were ancient names for what is known today as Saudi Arabia.

    Tarshish is most commonly agreed to be ancient Tartessus or the area of present day Spain in Western Europe. In Ezekiels day, Tarshish was in the farthest west regions of the known world. By referring to Tarshish and all her merchants, Ezekiel could have been indicating that Western Europe will join with Saudi Arabia in denouncing the invasion. Interestingly, Saudi Arabia is the only Arab nation to consistently side with the West against radical Islamic elements around the world. The royals of Saudi Arabia mostly side with the West out of an interest in self preservation, and at times oppose us behind the scenes, but they would most probably put on a show of opposition to radical Islam in order to maintain the support of western governments.

    A similar alliance has been seen once before during the Gulf War of the early 1990's. The U.S., Western Europe, and Saudi Arabia were allied against Iraq, while Russia, Iran, Sudan, Libya, and most other Middle East nations either aligned with Iraq, or against the U.S. either by directly opposing it, or by remaining neutral.

    The good news is that God wins. God will come against the invaders Himself and destroy them. Verses 19-20 say that there will be an earthquake so great that people all over the world will tremble. In the ensuing chaos, nations will begin to turn on each other. The confusion will lead to the largest case of death by friendly fire ever seen.

    Verse 22 of Ezekiel tells us that there will be plagues, torrents of rain, hailstones, and burning sulfur. Just as God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, he will destroy these invading forces. Once again, God will make it known to all the nations that He is the Lord. He will give the nations proof that He is the Holy One in Israel.

    This war against Israel will pave the way for the Antichrist's military rule over the world and his demand that the world worship him as God. With Islam defeated and the Christian Church raptured, opposition to worshipping a man as God will be greatly reduced. Those who are left would have no army with which to mount much of a protest.

    So, how should Christians respond to this prophecy? In Ezekiel 39:6,7, and 28 God says that this end-times battle will happen that "they will know that I am the Lord". This message that God's purpose is to cause Israel and the other nations to know He is Lord is repeated over 60 times in Ezekiel. By learning about prophecy and teaching it to others, people will be able to see the glory, majesty, and sovereignty of God in the fulfillment of His divine word. By knowing our Bible and teaching it to others, they will be able to see that there is a divine creator, and a plan for them. Through Jesus Christ and the salvation he offers us freely, there is victory and an eternity more glorious than they can imagine.


    Chamish - War Of Gog And Magog Coming
    By Barry Chamish
    A terrifying scenario of an upcoming Middle East war is being discussed in Israeli political circles. As the American terror death toll may surpass that of Hiroshima, the consensus among public opinion and top ranks of the military, untouched by the ruling illuminati caste, will be to strike back at Islam where it hurts the most.


    Three days ago, someone (that will do until he chooses to accept credit) left over a thousand sensitive documents concerning the Rabin murder at my home.

    I called the economics writer Yaacov Verker and asked him to drive by and look at the material. He would have arrived the next day but it was too tragic for both of us. The day after the bombings in New York and Washington, he speed-read the material and discovered the smoking gun.

    It is the results of tests on Yigal Amir's hands, a half hour after he supposedly shot Yitzhak Rabin. Inspector Arieh Moshe, of the Israel Police Crime Laboratory, conducted a Feroprint test of Amir's hands to measure the amount of gunpowder on them and compare the composition of the gunpowder with that of the bullet casings. He found that, "The results of the testing were insignificant." NO GUNPOWDER WAS ON AMIR'S HANDS. This is an impossibility if he shot Rabin with real bullets. After almost six years, we had the proof that Amir did not murder Rabin.

    Yaacov phoned Knesset Member, Michael Kleiner and told him the stunning news. Mr. Kleiner is head of the Herut Movement, for most of Israel's history, the country's most powerful opposition party. Today, it has been neutralized by forces led by Ariel Sharon. The next day, Mr. Kleiner's secretary called and requested that I meet MK Kleiner at a gathering of Herut Party members in Tel Aviv.

    I just returned from the meeting with Mr. Kleiner and numerous party leaders. A few told me that those behind the slaughter in America were the same people who brought us the Oslo "peace" process and the Rabin murder. They described the next stage of the Hell to be brought upon this planet.

    The Scenario

    1. America will demand proper retaliation for the grotesque loss of its citizens, for the wrecking of its economy and for the destruction of its most potent monolithic symbols. Only the bombing of Islam's most potent symbol, the Kaabah in Mecca, will satisfy the calls for equivalent justice.

    2. Saudi Arabia will be taken over, its oilfields will repay America's losses, and rebuild the twin towers, as well as the wrecked economy. (Which may have been the real motive of the destruction of the buildings. Somebody was behind the theft of trillions of dollars from the American economy in the last few years. No one will ever know who after this week).

    3. The American public will not allow the oil companies to exploit them and the Saudi profits will go directly to rebuilding lower Manhattan and then straight into the people's pockets.

    4. Naturally, most Moslems will object to the American takeover and that will slowly lead to the destruction of Islam. But not before the world is engulfed in violence comparable to that of World War II.


    After the grief and shock subside a tiny bit, in November, I want to come to New York. I want to speak to those victims, Jewish and gentile, of the tragedy and tell them a side of their misery no one else will; why Israelis and Americans are dying to ignite a war to change the ruling status quo of the planet. And why the Rabin murder may hold the key to exposing and defeating these evil forces.

    If any organization or group, no matter how small, will be willing to sponsor me, I'll come. If there is no budget, I'll cover the expenses. If you think I should be heard where the bombs struck, please contact me.

    Date: 18/11/2005
    A latter-day Gogand Magog
    By Aryeh Dayan

    A strange meeting was held two weeks ago in the office of Israel Prison Service ?(IPS?) Commissioner Yaakov Ganot. His two guests − the director of the Israel Antiquities Authority ?(IAA?), Shuka Dorfman, and the authority's archaeologist in the northern district, Dror Barshad − had already paid him several visits during the past year. But the latest meeting was different than the earlier ones, particularly because the pleasant, calm atmosphere that characterized them was replaced this time by a feeling of tension.

    Nine months ago, when the Israel Defense Forces transferred authority for the prison located at the Megiddo junction to the IPS, the latter decided to build permanent structures to replace the tents in which the army had housed the prisoners. The prison authorities called in the IAA, as required by law, to carry out archaeological excavations to confirm that construction on the prison grounds was permissible from an archaeological perspective. In all their previous meetings, the senior officials from the IAA reported to the commissioner on the archaeological artifacts they had discovered, and then announced the "release" of an additional section of the site for construction. But their tidings were different this time.

    They told Ganot that they had uncovered a mosaic floor in the southwest corner of the prison compound. Their initial assessment: The floor was from a Christian church that dated back to the middle of the third century or beginning of the forth century C.E. This is a discovery of enormous importance, they explained, because it is the first time the remains of such an ancient Christian church have been found in Israel.

    This has great historic-scientific significance, they explained, as well as importance with respect to tourism. Tens of thousands of Christian tourists and pilgrims will be interested in coming to see the mosaic. This discovery, they announced, obligates the IAA to continue digging in the area in an attempt to uncover additional important findings, and prevents the authority from approving any construction there.

    Ganot congratulated his guests on the scientific achievement, but as their conversation continued, signs of confrontation became apparent − a confrontation that will likely intensify during the coming months. While IAA officials spoke about the tremendous scientific importance of the mosaic floor, the commissioner spoke about the IPS's shortage of space and reminded them that only four of 10 planned cell blocks had been built and that the construction of the others is being delayed, mainly due to the excavations. When Dorfman and Barshad said that the discovery will garner international publicity for Israel, Ganot reminded them that the IPS has already invested tens of millions of shekels in building the Megiddo prison, which plays a central role in the service's expansion plan. At the end of the meeting, it was nonetheless decided that for now, the IPS would continue to cooperate with the IAA, but it was also clear that the two sides are conflicted over the future of the site where the floor was discovered.

    "The Megiddo junction is not an appropriate place to locate a prison," the deputy director of the IPS, Dr. Uzi Dahari, told Haaretz. "To the west of the intersection is Tel Megiddo, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO this year, and to the east we have now uncovered the new site. This is a place where tourism should be developed. The prison needs to be moved from there."

    "The prison could be moved to another place and its wall could be moved so that the mosaic would remain outside the jail. But the mosaic could also be moved to another place," the prison commander, Sharon Shoan, says in response. "These three options exist, and it all comes down to a question of money. It must not be forgotten that the security establishment is desperate for more prison cells."

    The IPS commissioner himself has refrained from personally commenting on this issue at this stage. According to his office: "We'll carry out any decision the state makes" and "if the Finance Ministry provides the money to move the prison, then we'll move the prison."

    If other archaeologists do not contradict the initial assessment by the IAA, the floor uncovered at Megiddo by one of the authority's archaeologists, Yotam Tefer, will be categorized as one of the most important findings discovered in Israel in recent decades. Its importance derives not only from the fact that it is part of the oldest church ever discovered here, but also because it dates back to the period in which Christian rituals still were conducted in secret.

    "The images and writing on the floor, and the pottery and ceramics found adjacent to it, lead us to the conclusion that we uncovered a floor of a public structure that served ritual purposes," Tefer says. "We are not entirely sure that we can call this a church, because we have never uncovered a church in Israel that was built before the year 325 and we simply do not know how churches built here at that time looked."
    The year 325 is when Christianity was declared the official religion in the Roman Empire. Until then, the Christians in Palestine, as in the rest of the empire, were compelled to carry out the rituals of their religion in secret.

    Fish and tables
    There are four pictures and three Greek inscriptions on the floor discovered at Megiddo. Based on these findings, IAA archaeologists assume that these are the remains of a church that dates back before the year 325. Prof. Leah Di Segni, an expert on ancient inscriptions from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who deciphered and translated the texts found at Megiddo, supports their assumption, but also stated that a more precise dating could only be done after additional remains are uncovered.

    Additional artifacts are apparently buried under the stratum where the floor was found. Di Segni has determined that the formulation of the inscriptions and the form of their letters testify to the fact that they were written prior to the declaration of Christianity as a legitimate religion in the Roman Empire.

    According to the IAA, one of the inscriptions mentions the name of a woman: "Akeptus, the devout, dedicated the table to God, Jesus Christ, as a memorial." IAA officials explain that the fact that the inscription mentions a "table" and not an "altar" indicates that it was written when Christianity operated "underground" and conducted its rituals around simple tables rather than altars, as was customary thereafter. The fact that fish are pictured on the floor and not crosses also testifies to its antiquity: At the beginning of the fourth century, fish were still used as the main symbol of Christianity.

    "The crossroads at Megiddo was considered during that period to be one of the most important intersections in Palestine, if not the most important," says Dahari, the deputy director of the IAA and a lecturer in archaeology at the University of Haifa, who wrote his doctoral thesis on ancient Christianity. The route leading from Caesarea in the west to Beit Shean in the east merged at Megiddo with the road that connected Be'er Sheva and Hebron − via Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nablus, Jenin and Megiddo − with Acre, Tyre and Sidon in the north. "Megiddo is a high point," Tefer explains, "from which it is possible to look to the north toward Nazareth and to the east toward the Jezreel Valley and Mount Tabor."

    The large military base that served the Roman legions during the third century was located to the west of today's Megiddo junction, and was evacuated at the end of that century. The civilian population in the Megiddo area, according to Dahari, was composed of Christians, Jews, Samaritans and pagans. The religious mixture changed during the fourth century: The Jewish population assimilated within the Christian population, and the Jewish village Othnai located adjacent to Megiddo was replaced by a large Byzantine city,

    Maximianopolis. Dahari says that this city became an important Christian center, headed by a bishop. Before the ancient mosaic floor was discovered, IAA excavators working at the Megiddo prison found a
    number of items that originated in that city.

    Possible confrontation
    Several days after the discovery of the mosaic was first reported on Channel 2, there were still many people milling about in the tent that has been built over it. Dozens of reporters and television crews from all over the world arrived at the site that morning. Many of them said that their editors had expressed great interest in what was perceived to be a discovery that could shed light on ancient Christianity. During the afternoon, one could see additional groups of visitors arriving one after another to look at the floor that has survived for nearly 1,700 years. They mingled with workers from the IAA, with the prisoners that assisted them, with wardens − until the place looked much more like a museum than a prison.

    Alongside a group of IPS officials, who peered at what had been hidden under the concrete floor where the beds of thousands of Palestinian administrative detainees had been for decades, was a group of archaeologists from several universities and research institutes. The IAA had invited them to come to hear their views on the significance of the findings and the best way to preserve them. Along with an economist representing the Government Tourist Corporation, who came to make an initial assessment of the economic potential of the discovery, there were senior staff from the Israel Nature & National Parks Protection Authority, who came to check the possibility of linking the new site to Tel Megiddo − an archaeological site it manages on the western side of the intersection.

    Amid the tumult they created, there was also a photographer roaming around, equipped with cameras and sophisticated lighting tripods, who photographed the mosaic from every possible angle. President Moshe Katsav is due to give the pictures that were taken to Pope Benedict XVI in Rome this week. The Vatican's ambassador in Israel, Pietro Sambi, was one of the first to take interest in the discovery, shortly after the initial report was broadcast.

    The main question that occupies everyone, and will continue to do so during the coming months, is what to do with the ancient and important floor: leave it within the walls of the prison, move it for display elsewhere, or leave it in situ and move the prison to another location. This is a thorny question whose answer many parties will seek to
    influence, but only the government will cast the deciding vote here.

    According to the Christian faith, Mount Megiddo, called Armageddon in the New Testament, is the site where the apocalyptic war of Gog and Magog will take place; following this war, Jesus is supposed to rise again and bring redemption to the world. To judge by the current rumblings, three statutory bodies have already begun to plan for a miniature war of Gog and Magog
    here: the IAA, which will seek to extend its jurisdiction over the important findings, the parks authority, which will seek to annex it to Tel Megiddo, and the IPS, which will not want to give up the premises of the facility where the discoveries were made.

    Meanwhile, the IAA has decided to transfer the mosaic to its laboratories to conduct vital maintenance and preservation work, but they made a point of emphasizing that this was only a temporary move and that the floor would be returned to its original spot after this work is completed.
    IPS officials, meanwhile, are saying: "We are elated about the value of the mosaic, just as much as the IAA's officials." But they make a point of emphasizing the extreme shortage of prison space and the fact that they had already invested a large sum in expanding the Megiddo Prison prior to the discovery.

    The decision concerning whether to turn the Megiddo area into an international tourist site or to keep the prison there will ultimately be made by the government. But the members of that government are currently preoccupied with much more pressing issues.

    The tourism minister, Abraham Hirchson, was quick to declare, already at the beginning of last week: "The prison should be moved to another spot and Megiddo should be developed into a tourist site that will attract hundreds of thousands of tourists." However, it is doubtful whether any of his colleagues, who are currently busy securing their political futures, have given any thought to the future of the ancient Christian church at Megiddo. The fate of the mosaic will apparently be decided by the next government, whenever it is formed.

    WORLD STAGE | Rumors of the ultimate war

    Armageddon: Soon?

    The crises in the Middle East have some saying the end times are near.

    The Kansas City Star

    “Israel cannot allow Iran to be nuclear, and America cannot allow Iran to be nuclear.”


    John Hagee and Stephen J. Stein are of completely different minds when it comes to predicting whether the world is fast approaching the biblical “last days.”

    Hagee, an author of 21 books and a San Antonio pastor with a worldwide radio and television ministry, is convinced recent armed conflict in the Middle East and the specter of Iran are proof that the apocalyptic battle of Armageddon — the war to end all wars to be fought in Israel — is not far off.

    “The end of the world as we know it is rapidly approaching,” Hagee writes in Jerusalem Countdown, the latest of his six books on the end times.

    Stein, on the other hand, is an Indiana University emeritus professor who has made a study of the apocalyptic predictions held by people like Hagee, and to date, he contends, they’ve all been wrong.

    “There have been evangelical preachers in America talking about the end times for more than 2 1/2 centuries,” said Stein, author of The Continuum History of Apocalypticism. And the end has yet to come.

    Historically the volume of talk of “end times” prophecies, of the “final days” and of Armageddon increases when armed conflict breaks out in the Middle East, such as the recent war between Israel and Hezbollah. And now, for Hagee in particular, the standoff involving the United States, Israel and Iran is a sign of biblical prophecy.

    To arrive at these predictions, conservative Christian pastors like Hagee and the Rev. Jerry Falwell interpret sections of the Old Testament, particularly the books of Ezekiel and Daniel, as prophecy, or predictions, of coming events.

    Falwell recently said that “the present-day events in the Holy Land may very well serve as a prelude or forerunner to the future battle of Armageddon and the glorious return of Jesus Christ.”

    Christians who subscribe to this biblical interpretation generally come from the conservative Protestant wing of Christendom. Other branches of Christianity, such as Roman Catholics and many mainline Protestant denominations, express little interest in end-times discussions. Among those who believe certain world events point back to biblical prophecy, not all agree about how it will come or when.

    Is Iran Magog?

    Earlier this week President Bush and Iran’s president spoke separately to the United Nations. One issue on which the men disagreed is whether Iran should be allowed to develop its nuclear energy program, with the possibility it could build a nuclear weapon.

    Iran plays a major role in how Hagee sees Old Testament prophecy playing out in the present.

    “Israel cannot allow Iran to be nuclear,” he said in an interview, “and America cannot allow Iran to be nuclear.” Stopping Iran could mean some kind of conflict.

    “Just before us is a nuclear countdown with Iran,” he wrote in Jerusalem Countdown, which came out earlier this year, “followed by Ezekiel’s war (as described in Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39), and then the final battle — the battle of Armageddon.”

    To Craig Koester, however, Hagee and others are reading too much into the Bible. That approach, said the author of Revelation and the End of All Things, “generally involves arranging verses from the Bible in different ways to create scenarios of the future.”

    “Sometimes,” said Koester, who teaches New Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minn., “they try to link specific verses with events happening in the news today.”

    Hagee, however, is not the only author who sees Iran having a major role in the final days. Best-selling Christian author Joel C. Rosenberg, whose novels deal with Bible prophecies, said the next war on the prophetic timetable will be what Bible scholars call the war of Gog and Magog.

    Rosenberg foresees this fight “involving a military alliance between Russia, Iran and a group of other Mideast countries who try to wipe Israel off the map. Russia and Iran have never had a military alliance in the 2,500 years since the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel wrote that prophecy, but they are forming one today.”


    To the keepers of the Countdown to Armageddon Web site (, Armageddon is actually a battle “where God finally comes in and takes over the world and rules it the way it should have been ruled all along.”

    In his book The Shadow of the Apocalypse, Paul Crouch, co-founder of the conservative Christian-oriented Trinity Broadcast Network, writes, “Jesus Christ … will rescue Israel, avenge those who have suffered in his name, punish the wicked, redeem the earth, imprison Satan and reign victorious over the earth.”

    The name Armageddon is found in Revelation 16:16. It is part of a vision of the Apostle John in which kings from the East gather to oppose God. The name in Hebrew means Mount of Megiddo.

    “Since Megiddo was a place where various armies were defeated (in history),” Koester said, “the name Armageddon is suitable for the battle at which the forces of evil are defeated at the end of time.”

    The battle represents the final showdown between the forces of good and evil, said Cathy N. Gutierrez, religion professor at Sweet Briar College in Virginia, who writes on religion topics.

    “While all three major monotheisms — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — believe in some version of an ultimate conflict between these forces, the use of the word Armageddon itself usually denotes a Christian understanding of these events,” she said.

    “The second half of the Book of Daniel (chapters 7-12) is the original Judaic source for an apocalypse, or the final confrontation,” she said. “The Book of Revelation in the New Testament relies heavily on the predictions in Daniel, and many people have tried to use the two in conjunction to predict the arrival of the end time.”

    In addition to Revelation 16:16, the chapters of Isaiah 63, Joel 3 and Zechariah 14 also speak of the final victory of God, Koester said.

    “The battle itself is pictured in Revelation 19:11-21, where Christ appears as a rider on a white horse,” he said. “Literalistic interpreters generally focus on the devastation of the battle and link it to modern military technology, though they usually have to ignore the fact that the people in the vision are riding on horses.

    “Interpreters who read Revelation literalistically will argue that armies will gather at the site of the ancient town of Megiddo,” Koester said. “… Other interpreters point out that the Old Testament names used in Revelation frequently have a symbolic meaning.”


    During the recent fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, author Rosenberg told CNN that he sees Bible prophecy unfolding bit by bit in the Middle East right now. He has put forth his theories of events leading to the last days in novels such as The Ezekiel Option and The Copper Scroll and an upcoming nonfiction book, Epicenter: Why the Current Rumblings in the Middle East Will Change Your Future.

    “There’s no question that we’re living in what the Bible calls the last days,” he said.

    But Gutierrez said that throughout history the end-times prophecy passages have been interpreted to relate to many different times and events.

    “In the 20th century the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union were seen as signs,” she said. “With the uncertainty in the world and particularly with any crisis in the Middle East, people reach to the idea of Armageddon in order to explain contemporary suffering and to fit scary events firmly into a divine plan so that history at least does not seem random or out of control.”

    Stein added, “Some Christians have talked about the re-establishment of the state of Israel, the rebuilding of the temple in Israel, the conversion of the Jews to Christianity, etc., as signs of the times that precede the final struggle,” he said. “Others have identified the defeat of secular forces as the result of the battle. Any opponent or enemy can be linked to the evil side.”

    Koester said he doesn’t think the Bible gives a step-by-step description of events that will take place at the end of time.

    “Biblical prophecies give Christians the confident hope that God will defeat evil in the end,” he said. “… The Scriptures call Christians to put their faith in God rather than in their abilities to know where we are on God’s time line.”

    But Hagee is unwavering in his faith that his assessment that Ezekiel’s prophecy is coming to life today.

    “Following Ezekiel 38, Russia will give military leadership to the radical Islamics who want to destroy the state of Israel and control Jerusalem,” he said. “That is the battle of Gog and Magog. And God himself will destroy the Russian-Arab coalition. The world will see God defending Israel as it hasn’t seen since Pharaoh.”

    Statement: Events such as the rebirth of the state of Israel, wars and instability in the Middle East, recent earthquakes and the tsunami in Asia are evidence that we are living in what the Bible calls the last days.


    Israeli Nuclear Strike On Iran Turned Back

    A recent strike by nuclear-armed Israeli Air Force fighter-bombers bound for targets in Iran was turned back after being intercepted by U.S. fighters over Iraq, this reporter has learned.

    Two sources have independently confirmed the encounter, which took place on January 7, 2007. Though the first informant offered few details beyond an initial tip, a second source long-known by this reporter to have well-placed U.S. and “non-U.S.” military and government contacts provided specific information regarding the raid, which was aimed at the radical religious ayatollahs holding ultimate power in Iran.

    Israeli nuclear strikes are not unprecedented. Soon after Desert Storm, U.S. Navy pilots told this reporter in Kuwait how in late 1990 Israel made good on its pledge to respond in kind to WMD attacks by launching nuclear-armed aircraft against Baghdad following a lethal assault on Tel Aviv by Scud missiles tipped with chemical warheads. That air strike was called off when the Americans refused to provide the vital IFF codes needed to fly through U.S.-controlled airspace.

    When questioned concerning the “Identification Friend or Foe” transponder codes needed to overfly Iraq today, this source said that allied Israeli aircraft are routinely provided “squawk codes” when flying missions aimed at acquiring the characteristics of air defence radars triggered by their approach to Syrian, Jordanian, Iranian and U.S.-controlled Iraqi airspace.

    This source added that visiting IAF warplanes are routinely “topped off” by American aerial refueling tankers, but only on condition that the Israeli jets fly a “racetrack” holding pattern—and do not continue “downtown” toward Iran.

    The designated turn back point is the “160 station”—a clearly charted tapline road located 160 kilometers from Baghdad. Any aircraft proceeding beyond this point must declare its intentions. Otherwise, a USAF F-15 will take position off its wingtip. After waggling its own wings to attract attention, if the interloper fails to turn back, the American Eagle “drops behind and gets tone” by locking a Sidewinder anti-aircraft missile onto the offending plane.

    According to this very reliable source, on two previous occasions Israeli fighter-bombers armed with nuclear bombs have headed “downtown” before being turned back over Iraq.

    The January 7th mission, which trespassed beyond 160 station before being recalled by Israeli authorities, comprised three IAF F-16s. Each carried conventional munitions—as well as a single 20-kiloton nuclear bomb.

    This report of an attempted nuclear strike contradicts military analysts who have long maintained that Israel would deploy as many as 25 I-model F-15 fighter-bombers from the 69th Squadron based at Hatzerim Air Base in the northern Negev, about 50 miles south of Tel Aviv. Any Israeli Air Force attack, it is believed, must first suppress Iranian air defenses, while ensuring that enough conventionally-armed F-15s get through to set back that country’s widely dispersed nuclear program for many years.

    The latest model F-15 can carry as much ordnance as a neighborhood-flattening World War II B-17 heavy bomber. As the independent think tank Strategic Forecasting points out, the IAF “has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to conduct long-range strikes”—including the 1976 raid on Entebbe, 2,600 miles from Israel, and a 1985 attack on the PLO headquarters in Tunis, 1,500 miles away. []

    But Iran’s air defenses are far more formidable than any the Israeli Air Force has yet faced. Manufactured at the KBM factory near Moscow, Russian-supplied SA-18 Igla-S mobile missile batteries are said to be highly effective against low-flying jets. According to Russian intelligence sources known as DEBKA, the Igla’s mobility “makes them difficult to target and limits the maneuverability of Israeli planes.”

    DEBKA has also revealed that Russian advisers from the Raduga OKB engineering group based in Dubna near Moscow have completed installing two advanced radar systems around the Bushehr nuclear reactor on the Persian Gulf. Codenamed “Tin Shield”, the mobile 36D6 systems are modified to protect Iran’s Russian-supplied nuclear facilities from American or Israeli aircraft, stand-off missiles, and cruise missile attacks. On January 12, 2006, Tin Shields also went operational around the uranium enrichment plants at Isfahan in central Iran.

    Other air defenses supplied by Moscow to Syria—and most likely Iran—include advanced mobile SS-26 Iskander-E surface to surface missiles carrying a 1,000-pound multiple warhead capable of dodging air defense radars and electronic jamming, as well as surface-to-air SA-10 “Grumble” missiles capable of engaging several targets simultaneously at various altitudes, and SA-18 “Grouse” shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles fitted with a 4.5-pound high-explosive warhead. The SA-18 has a maximum range of 5.2 kilometers and a maximum altitude of 3.5 kilometers.

    Another major worry for Israeli pilots is Iran’s first satellite. Carried into orbit by a Russian booster in October 2005, the Sinah-1 can provide a “look down” capability to spot low-flying aircraft long before they intrude Iranian airspace.

    “The Iranians’ space programme is a matter of deep concern to us,” said an Israeli defence source at the time. “If and when we launch an attack on several Iranian targets, the last thing we need is Iranian early warning received by satellite.”

    Moscow has also supplied an estimated $1 billion worth of advanced Tor-M1 anti-missile systems capable of destroying guided missiles and laser-guided bombs dropped from high-flying aircraft. “Once the Iranians get the Tor-M1, it will make our life much more difficult,” worried an Israeli air force source. “We can’t waste time on this one.” [; Sunday Times Dec 11/05; Dec 11/05]

    According to DEBKA, Moscow intends to secure its investment at Bushehr “against the fate of the Saddam Hussein’s French-built Tamuz nuclear center, which the Israeli air force bombed out existence 24 years ago.”

    Fitted with modified drop tanks to extend their range, a trio of smaller, more agile F-16s presents a much more difficult challenge to Iran’s defenders than a larger force of twin-engine F-15s. Renowned for their ability to “tweak” American-supplied weapons, the Israelis have, according to my inside source, managed to reduce the F-16’s radar profile “to the size of a kid’s tricycle.”

    As he described it, “We fuel ‘em up and they go off the reservation, hit afterburners, hit the deck, and vanish...”
    Demonstrating his insider knowledge, he further noted that the Israelis have modified the original drop tanks supplied by the Americans to simultaneously feed the F-16’s single engine, thereby avoiding the fuel management distractions required to keep the fighter in balance using the one-tank-at-a-time U.S. system.

    Also unlike their USAF counterparts, Israeli F-16s can simultaneously jettison their spent underwing fuel tanks without the risk of a tumbling drop tank striking live ordnance suspended under the fighter’s wings.

    But even fitted with drop-tanks, unless assisted by USAF tankers or allowed to land in Iraq, low-flying F-16’s will burn too much fuel to return. Unless they receive a message in flight to turn back, this source said, Israeli pilots “have already been told before they get into the plane they are not coming back.” He added that volunteer pilots are prepared to fly their nuclear bombs “into their targets” if necessary.

    On January 7, after crossing into Iranian airspace, the three ground-hugging nuclear-armed Israeli F-16s would have turned north. Using conventional munitions, the jets would have attacked the 3rd Tactical Air Base at Hamadan to preclude pursuit by the obsolete Iranian air force F-4s stationed there.

    Because the small Israeli strike force was expected to be flying a one-way mission, more modern Iranian F-5s and MiG-29s based at the 2nd Tactical Air Base at Tabriz would not have presented a problem on egress. []

    This source further stated that the crowded Iranian capitol and the “huge” Revolutionary Guard training facility at Hamadan are “defined targets.” He added that Hamadan is also the Revolutionary Guard’s “central depository for WMD.”

    Late in 1990, as a Desert Storm gathered on Iraq’s western border, a convoy of six blacked out transport trucks departed a heavily guarded al-Jesira factory loading dock just outside Mosul. The vehicles included a 1983 red and white Scania transport van, a 1985 Scania with white cab and red box, an orange 1975 MAC truck, an orange 1986 Scania, a brown and white Volvo truck of unknown vintage, and another Scania transport sporting an orange cab and red box.

    Already targeted by allied war planners, the al-Jesira Factory produced the uranium hexaflouride used in the difficult technical task of turning low-grade uranium into highly enriched uranium for weapons purposes.

    License plates obscured with mud, and traveling only at night, the trucks drove south to a second loading stop in Baghdad, before turning east into Iran. According to a declassified U.S. military intelligence report, the containers sent to Shiite Teheran by Saddam’s dissident Shiite generals were clearly labeled: “Tularemia,” “Anthrax,” “Botulinum” and “Plague”.

    Their gift package also included an advanced Hewlett Packard computer, and a Linatron X-ray machine marked “pbg”. Both were shipped from Iraq’s nuclear weapons facility at Mosul, along with sealed containers of uranium hexafluoride. Details of these WMD transfers were contained in a September 30, 2004 U.S. Department of Defence intelligence report widely distributed among U.S. government and military leaders: Filename:22010744.91r, PATHFINDER RECORD NUMBER: 11224; SUBJ: TRANSFER OF NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) MATERIEL DURING DESERT STORM [original text:]

    Also contradicting military aviation experts and IAF cover stories, this source revealed that the intended targets on July 7th were not aimed at turning Iran’s five heavily defended nuclear reactors into as many Chernobyls. Nor could the Israeli attackers expect to hit Iran’s hundreds of widely dispersed nuclear research facilities. Instead, the January 7 mission objective was to pre-empt Teheran’s ability to attack Israel by eliminating Iran’s “Command and Control”—the religious leadership holding the “go codes” required to launch an Iranian attack on Israel.

    “This cuts off the head of the snake and makes response impossible,” my source said. “Decapitating” the country’s top leaders is possible, he went on, because they tend to feel safer by congregating. “Iranians are so untrusting of the communications networks and methodologies most other people use, they don’t use the Internet,” he asserted. “They use the ‘sneaker net’ to walk the message over.”

    According to a London newspaper, a “massive” Israeli intelligence operation has been underway in Iran since that country was designated the “top priority for 2005.” [Sunday Times Dec 11/05]

    But my source described “years” of insertions of Israeli agents into Iran. Besides locating that country’s underground nuclear installations, Israeli “moles” are principally charged with “pinpointing individuals that would have to be taken out,” he said. “To assure that the government is nonfunctional, you have to go at least 10 people back” from Iran’s top religious and political leaders.

    “ It’s like a fatwa,” he continued. Acting as “target designators,” Israeli agents equipped with miniaturized homing beacons “stay glued” to Iranian leaders.” Because Iran’s religious and civil leadership often holds meetings on trains, a single well-timed Israeli strike “can take them all out,” he affirmed. “Going downtown, goin’ for the black robes, they have on the ground confirmation.”

    Unlike a conventional high-explosive bomb, detonation of a hydrogen bomb ensures “success” in aborting a perceived Iranian attack by frying that all of that country’s computers, phones, radio and other electronic equipment in a massive Electromagnetic Pulse. Because Iranian military electronics are not “hardened” against EMP, and because Iranian war-fighting doctrine stipulates that commanders “use everything they have and hold nothing in reserve,” this source pointed out that if an Israeli air raid is suspected, “all their stuff will be lit up.” As a consequence, after an EMP from an atomic air burst, “Everything on will now be permanently off.”

    So will everyone caught in the initial blast wave and firestorm extending more than a dozen miles from the mushrooming blast’s epicenter, as well as all those caught in the radioactive fallout that follows. Ensuring regional radiation sickness, the sharkay day wind blows from NW to SE over Iran and surrounding countries, before shifting 180 degrees during the nighttime shamal.

    With Iranian missiles able to hit Tel Aviv and the Israeli nuclear plant and atom bomb dump at Dimona, and major powers pledged to Teheran’s defense, how Israel and the world expects to escape the moral, military and political consequences of another Hiroshima was not explained.

    According to my informant, the three “warning” nuclear strikes launched against Iran and aborted by Israel came in response to threatening military moves that accompanied belligerent public statements by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    “When they start to deploy, you decapitate so they can’t issue a go order,” he said. “What would you do if your country was as small and vulnerable as Florida? If someone keeps saying they are going to punch you in the face, and then they start to get up out of their chair, what are you going to do? When it’s the survival of your family, the survival of your [race], there are no rules.”

    Though this source would not confirm the other two dates, one Israeli nuclear strike might have been

    launched shortly after December 14, 2005, when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a “myth” and suggested that Israel’s Jews be relocated to Europe or Alaska.

    Dubbing Ahmadinejad, “Admin-job”, this source dismissingly described the Iranian President’s role as “tech support” for the radical ayatollahs, whose national constitution calls for unremitting terror attacks against Israel and the United States—despite near unanimous opposition by Iran’s predominantly younger demographic.

    Because Ahmadinejad “does what the black robes tell him,” the Iranian president’s pre-approved public utterances are taken seriously by Israelis, who reportedly became alarmed just prior to

    January 7 when the Iranian political leader made a short radio statement to his nation saying that a “consolidated” response was required to Bush “and the Zionists”. That the Iranian president issued his address over more publicly accessible shortwave radio, instead of making his usual televised announcement was apparently considered especially menacing by Israeli intelligence.

    Likening Israel to a tiny white desert scorpion that is “utterly fearless” in its own defense, this source emphasized that its leaders are “more than deadly serious” in defending their UN-imposed homeland. Determining the point where Iran becomes “a mortal threat” to Israel’s security by crossing the so-called red line “is a minute by minute decision,” he said.

    That red line was said to be breached in March 2006, when an Israeli army assessment warned that Iran was capable of enriching enough uranium to start producing nuclear weapons within three years. The previous December, Israeli President Ariel Sharon had declared, “Israel—and not only Israel—cannot accept a nuclear Iran. We have the ability to deal with this, and we’re making all the necessary preparations to be ready for such a situation.” []

    Israel’s military intelligence chief Aharon Zeevi Farkash also warned the Knesset, “If by the end of March the international community is unable to refer the Iranian issue to the United Nations Security Council, then we can say the international effort has run its course.” [; Sunday Times Dec 11/05; Dec 11/05]

    Writing for Newsweek and the Associated Press, Mideast journalist Robert Parry observes, “Bush is looking for ways to ‘double-down’ his gamble in Iraq by joining with Olmert—and possibly outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair—” in a desperate roll of violent dice.

    Despite Israeli President Ehud Olmert’s misadventure in Lebanon, which has inflamed public sentiments against Israel and vastly strengthened Hammas—as well as Tony Blair’s deepening disgrace, and the resounding defeat of Bush’s war policies in the November 7, 2006 congressional elections—the three leaders have recently conducted private discussions: Olmert meeting with Bush on November 13, Blair visiting the White House on December 7, and Blair conferring with Olmert in Israel on December 18.

    Sources close to Parry say “the three leaders are frantically seeking options for turning around their political fortunes as they face harsh judgments from history for their bloody and risky adventures in the Middle East.”

    But the veteran correspondent adds, “There is a clock ticking… If the Bush-Blair-Olmert triumvirate has any hope of accomplishing the neoconservative remaking of the Middle East, time is running out. Something dramatic must happen soon.”

    Parry refers to that “something” as “Armageddon.”

    “I would expect an attack in the next six months,” concurred Larry Johnson, a former deputy director in the State Department’s counter-terrorism office, earlier this month. “This is not just planning for possible military contingencies. There is real planning underway for carrying out a military strike against Iran”—a strike the Israeli military has reportedly already attempted three times. [Consortium News Jan 8/07]

    Faced with rising clamor for his own ouster among the American populace, and outright refusal by his top generals to carry out a previously ordered ground attack against Iran using B61-11 nuclear bombs, George Bush continues to defy nearly everyone, while claiming to receive his apocalyptic instructions directly from God. [New Yorker, Apr 17/06]

    According to DEBKA, after stating in April 2006 that U.S. intelligence does not believe Iran could produce a nuclear weapon within a decade, then Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte “infuriated neoconservative hardliners who wanted a worst-case scenario on Iran’s nuclear capabilities, much as they pressed for an alarmist view on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction before the U.S. invasion in 2003.”

    As DEBKA sees it, “Bush’s neocon advisers fear that if Bush doesn’t act decisively in his remaining two years in office, his successor may lack the political will to launch a preemptive strike against Iran.

    “Attacks on Iran and Syria also would fit with Bush’s desire to counter the growing Shiite influence across the Middle East, which was given a boost by Bush’s ouster of the Sunni-dominated government of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.” [ Jan 24/05]

    The Washington Post agrees, reporting how “Bush began pondering how best to throttle Shiite expansionism” after the neocon fantasy “of a U.S.-orchestrated transformation of the Middle East had turned into a nightmare of rising Shiite radicalism.” [Washington Post, July 16/06]

    Bush’s closest advisers also blame Syria and Iran for supporting Iraq’s defenders. “Lacking the military and political capacity to expand the conflict beyond Iraq, the Bush administration turned to Israel and its new Prime Minister Ehud Olmert,” DEBKA says.

    By summer 2006, Israeli sources were describing Bush’s obsessive interest in finding a pretext to take down Syria and Iran. Toward this end, he removed the American Ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad when that moderate Muslim objected to Bush’s decision to hang Saddam Hussein. (While governor of Texas, Bush set an all-time record for hangings there.)

    Parry also notes that on November 8, two days after Donald Rumsfeld’s memo urging a “minimalist” U.S. presence in Iraq, and the day after American voters threw the Republican majority out of the House and Senate, Bush fired his Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld “for going wobbly on the war.” [Consortium News Jan 8/07]

    On January 4, 2007 Bush replaced his two top Middle East commanders after Generals John Abizaid and George Casey opposed his military escalation in Iraq. Alluding to upcoming attacks on Iran and Syria, Bush stated, “I’m not predicting any particular theater, but I am predicting that it’s going to take a while for the ideology of liberty to finally triumph…” [Consortium News Jan 8/07]

    By then, he had already dispatched U.S. marines and two carrier task forces to the coast of Iran.

    Working for the Canadian think tank, Global Research, Ottawa-based Middle East analyst Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya has pieced together Bush’s personal war fleet.

    Now on station in the Persian Gulf, “Expeditionary Strike Group 5” includes more than 2,000 marines from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Equipped with landing craft and 38 helicopters, the marines are not going to bolster U.S. forces inside Iraq. Instead, they are prepared to “rapidly deploy” on orders received from either of two-men comprising the National Command Authority—the President, or the Secretary of Defense.

    The Expeditionary Strike Group’s flagship, the marine assault vessel USS Boxer is accompanied by the massive dock landing vessel, USS Dubuque, the troop ship USS Comstock, battle cruiser USS Bunker Hill, guided-missile destroyers USS Benford and USS Howard, and HMCS Ottawa. Though ostensibly joining its American ally to prosecute the “War on Terror,” prior to steaming for Iran the Canadian frigate took part in Strike Group 5’s anti-submarine drills off Hawaii aimed at countering Iran’s diesel-electric submarines.

    Leading this attack armada is the nuclear carrier USS Enterprise escorted by the destroyer USS McFaul, the frigate USS Nicholas, the battle cruiser USS Leyte Gulf, the attack submarine USS Alexandria, and the fast combat support ship USNS Supply.

    A second powerful Strike Group comprises the similarly escorted nuclear aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower. One of these naval strike groups is steaming in the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea; the second is bottled up in the Persian Gulf.

    As Nazemroaya narrates, “The Persian Gulf could be closed off and turned into a shooting gallery” by Iranian forces deploying advanced Chinese and Russian anti-ship missiles, as well as 225 miles-per-hour torpedoes.

    In addition, Iran’s huge hovercraft fleet is augmented by missile-firing drones and helicopter squadrons, silent submarines, and new “Joshan” PT boats capable of speeds in excess of 45 knots. Equipped with a variety of missiles striking beyond 62 miles, the Joshans’ rapid-firing 76-mm shells can shred sea and air targets within 19 kilometers at altitudes up to 23,000 feet.

    While such a pornographic catalogue of costly killing machines reads like a Tom Clancy thriller, the results of war in the Persian Gulf will be widespread death and chaos ashore, major casualties for the U.S. and Canadian navies, and worldwide economic and political spasm following the closing of major oil tanker routes through the Strait of Hormuz

    Anticipating heavy losses, overall command and control of both Carrier Air Groups has for the first time been transferred onshore. The U.S. Coast Guard vessel USS Midgett has also been dispatched to assist U.S. and Canadian naval vessels wrecked by the Iranian armed forces.

    Retired Colonel Gardiner, who once taught military strategy at the U.S. National War College, declares that the U.S. carrier deployments are “very important evidence” of Bush’s intentions to wage war against Iran. “It’s a very significant order, and it’s not done as a training exercise,” Gardiner noted. “You cannot issue a PTDO and then stay ready for very long,”

    A PTDO requires all crews to be onboard, and all ships and aircraft ready to deploy by a certain date—in this case, October 1, 2006. “I think the plan’s been picked: bomb the nuclear sites in Iran,” says Gardiner. “It’s a terrible idea. It’s against U.S. law and it’s against international law, but I think they’ve decided to do it.”

    Toward this end, Bush has appointed Admiral William Fallon as the new head of Central Command (CENTCOM) for the entire Middle East Theater of Operations. The former Navy pilot will oversee two ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as any American involvement following Israel’s proxy attacks on Iran.

    According to DEBKA, “Though not considered a Middle East expert, Fallon has moved in neoconservative circles… attending a 2001 awards ceremony at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.” JINSA lobbyists dominate U.S. Middle East policy by encouraging the White House to directly link “American defense policy and the security of Israel.” [DEBKAfile Jan 24/05]

    Award-winning Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk also links “Vice-President Dick Cheney, the arch-hawk in the U.S. administration” to the powerful JINSA. “Richard Perle, chairman of the Pentagon’s Defence Policy Board, is still an adviser on the institute, as is the former CIA director James Woolsey,” Fisk adds. “Perle advises the Defence Secretary…”

    As Jeff Halper, an Israeli professor of anthropology and Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions points out, “Israel is a center of neocon ideology and mobilization. Many of the founders of neo-conservatism in the 1970s and most of its prominent advocates today are [Zionists]. This is not an irrelevant fact, nor is it ‘anti-Semitic’ to say so.”

    Though opposed by many Jewish people, Zionists believe “every inch of the Holy Land should belong to Israel, and that there should never be a Palestinian state,” explains The Guardian’s Matthew Engel. [Days of Deception by William Thomas]

    Robert Parry worriedly observes that U.S. naval strike forces currently steaming off Iran offers “perhaps a last chance at achieving the regional transformation that has been at the heart of Bush’s strategy of ‘democratizing’ the Middle East through [more] violence if necessary.”

    Another source familiar with high-level thinking in Washington and Tel Aviv believes that an unstated reason for Bush’s troop surge is to bolster Baghdad’s Green Zone in anticipation of a mass uprising among Iraqi Shiites following attacks on Iran by Israeli and American forces. In addition to appointing a known “technocrat” to head CENTCOM, Bush has also replaced America’s top spy chief, John Negroponte with retired Vice Admiral John McConnell.

    “Navy, Navy, Navy,” my source noted. “Do you see a pattern? The Gulf of Tonkin was started by the Navy. Admiral Crowe covered-up the shootdown of the Iranian Airbus” (by USS Vincennes), and the electromagnetic-beaming “poppers” used to interfere with the minds and moods of Iraq’s populace and national leadership were “a U.S. Navy invention put in place by the Office of Naval Intelligence.”

    As for George Bush Senior—the man who gave the world the first Gulf War, more than 740,000 Iraqi deaths, and a thousand burning oil wells—”Navy,” he added. Regarding his son, this source pointed out, “He gets rid of everyone who’s telling him ‘no’. That to me is dangerous because there’s no fail-safe.”

    Providing a “fail safe” for pressing home the January 7 nuclear strike were three IAF F-16s. “Only one needs to reach the target,” this source explained. “Of the other two, one is to take out resistance or hold hostage, the third is backup.”

    He meant American “resistance”. In order to defend its national interest, if ordered to prosecute their attack on Iran, Israeli warplanes are prepared to take on their American sponsors, my source stated. But instead of dog-fighting over Baghdad, he described how altimeter-armed nuclear bombs set to go off at a specific altitude would prevent American fighters from shooting down the Israeli jets.

    “Which way will the surge surge?” I asked.

    My source laughed grimly. “We need a surge protector,” he declared. On January 7, the Israeli nuclear strike was turned back over al-Samawah, “a hair away from an-Nasiriyah. That was not the first time. It’s not going to be the last time. But every time it happens, it goes further and gets closer. There is no way to turn this off. This is not an ‘if’ – it’s a ‘when’”.

    In a move that must have sent chills through wintertime Europe, a pugnacious Putin has reportedly informed EU leaders that he will “pull the plug” on Russian oil and natural gas shipments if Israel attacks Iran.

    Heightening tensions, military exercises involving Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan forces were held in late August 2006. At the same time, China and Kazakhstan held joint “anti-terrorism” drills. That same month, war games coordinating Russian, Chinese, CSTO and Iranian forces took place throughout Iran.

    In September 2006, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan also held joint “anti-terrorism drills” aimed at blocking U.S. and NATO “interference”. During this time, China and Tajikistan also conducted their first joint military exercise.

    “Roughly 12,000 mostly American troops in Afghanistan will begin to integrate with NATO in October 2006,” Nazemroaya further notes. Following attacks on Iran and Syria, NATO and the U.S. anticipate intervening in Pakistan, where the collapse of General Musharraf’s government could place Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal in the hands of that country’s al-Qaeda and Taliban opposition—and perhaps Osama bin Laden. [Global Research Oct 1/06; Navy Times Sept 12/06; Time; CNN Sept 17/06 Nation Sept 28/06]

    Seeking further provocation with Teheran, on January 11, 2007, U.S. forces stormed the Iranian consulate in the northern Iraqi town of Irbil, seizing six staff members, computers and classified papers. Bush presaged the embassy raid by pledging to take a hard line towards Iran and Syria, whom he accused of “destabilizing” a country plunged into anarchy by the American occupation.

    The U.S. also accuses Iran of seeking nuclear arms to counter the American and Israeli nuclear arsenals. Denying both charges, Tehran recently warned the U.N. General Assembly that escalating U.S. military involvement in the Middle East “threatens to drag the world into war.” [BBC Jan 11/07]

    “ These war plans must be taken very seriously,” warns Global Research director Michel Chossudovsky. “The world is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The U.S. has embarked on a military adventure, a long war, which threatens the future of humanity. In the weeks ahead, it is essential that citizens’ movements around the world act consistently to confront their respective governments and reverse and dismantle this military agenda.”

    This Canadian analyst further urges, “What is needed is to break the conspiracy of silence, expose the media lies and distortions, and confront the criminal nature of the U.S. Administration and of those governments which support it.”

    As a Democratic Congress moves to block Bush’s latest military escalation, spontaneous street protests calling for his immediate impeachment have broken out in Santa Cruz, California and other U.S. cities. These demonstrations are expected to grow. Calling by cell phone from the raucous streets of Santa Cruz, resident Rich Valles said, “I’m getting the strong feeling that the American people are soon going to be taking this to Washington—where they will be joined by the army.”

    In the end, it may be even more important to impeach Washington’s militaristic mindset, then the hangman it personifies.

    (Ch. 16 - 22)

    -- XVI --

    1) I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, Go a and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the earth!

    2) The first went, and poured out his bowl into the earth, and it became a harmful and evil sore on the people who had the mark of the beast, and who worshiped his image.

    3) The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man. Every living thing in the sea died.

    4) The third poured out his bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5) I heard the angel of the waters saying, You are righteous, who are and who were, you Holy One, because you have judged these things. 6) For they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets, and you have given them blood to drink. They deserve this. 7) I heard the altar saying, Yes, Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.

    8) The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9) People were scorched with great heat, and people blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues. They didn’t repent and give him glory.

    10) The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain, 11) and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores. They didn’t repent of their works.

    12) The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates. Its water was dried up, that the way might be made ready for the kings that come from the sunrise.

    13) I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, something like frogs; 14) for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, the Almighty.

    15) Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn’t walk naked, and they see his shame.

    16) He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo.

    17) The seventh poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came forth out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done!

    18) There were lightnings, sounds, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men on the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty.

    19) The great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

    20) Every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21) Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, b came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.

    1) One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, Come here. I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute, that famous city that sits on many waters,

    2) with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality, and those who dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her sexual immorality.

    3) He carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.

    4) The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of the sexual immorality of the earth.

    5) And on her forehead a name was written,


    6) I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered with great amazement.

    7) The angel said to me, Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.

    8) The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into destruction. Those who dwell on the earth and whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel when they see that the beast was, and is not, and shall be present. a

    9) Here is the mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills, on which the woman sits.

    10) They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, the one is, the other has not yet come. When he comes, he must continue a little while.

    11) The beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he goes to destruction.

    12) The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour.

    13) These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast.

    14) These will war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him, called and chosen and faithful.

    15) He said to me, The waters which you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages.

    16) The ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the prostitute, and will make her desolate, and will make her naked, and will eat her flesh, and will burn her utterly with fire.

    17) For God has put in their hearts to do what he has in mind, and to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God should be accomplished.

    18) The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

    1) After these things, I saw another angel coming down out of the sky, having great authority. The earth was illuminated with his glory.

    2) He cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and she has become a habitation of demons, a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird!

    3) For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality, the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from the abundance of her luxury.

    4) I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you a have no participation in her sins, and that you a don’t receive of her plagues,

    5) for her sins have reached to the sky, and God has remembered her iniquities.

    6) Return to her just as she returned, and repay her double as she did, and according to her works. In the cup which she mixed, mix to her double.

    7) However much she glorified herself, and grew wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning. For she says in her heart, ‘I sit a queen, and am no widow, and will in no way see mourning.’

    8) Therefore in one day her plagues will come: death, mourning, and famine; and she will be utterly burned with fire; for the Lord God who has judged her is strong.

    9) The kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived wantonly with her, will weep and wail over her, when they look at the smoke of her burning,

    10) standing far away for the fear of her torment, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For your judgment has come in one hour.’

    11) The merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise any more;

    12) merchandise of gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet, all expensive wood, every vessel of ivory, every vessel made of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble;

    13) and cinnamon, incense, perfume, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, sheep, horses, chariots, slaves, and human lives.

    14) The fruits which your soul lusted after have been lost to you, and all things that were dainty and sumptuous have perished from you, and you will find them no more at all.

    15) The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, will stand far away for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning;

    16) saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was dressed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls!

    17) For in an hour such great riches are made desolate.’ Every shipmaster, and everyone who sails anywhere, and mariners, and as many as gain their living by sea, stood far away,

    18) and cried out as they looked at the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like the great city?’

    19) They cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had their ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her great wealth!’ For in one hour is she made desolate.

    20) Rejoice over her, O heaven, you a saints, apostles, and prophets; for God has judged your judgment on her.

    21) A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down, and will be found no more at all.

    22) The voice of harpists, minstrels, flute players, and trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. No craftsman, of whatever craft, will be found any more at all in you. The sound of a mill will be heard no more at all in you.

    23) The light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you. The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will be heard no more at all in you; for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery all the nations were deceived.

    24) In her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on the earth.

    1) After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, Hallelujah! Salvation, power, and glory belong to our God:

    2) for true and righteous are his judgments. For he has judged the great prostitute, who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and he has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

    3) A second said, Hallelujah! Her smoke goes up forever and ever. 4) The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah!

    5) A voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all you a his servants, you a who fear him, the small and the great!

    6) I heard something like the voice of a great multitude, and like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!

    7) Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready.

    8) It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine linen: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

    9) He said to me, Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ He said to me, These are true words of God.

    10) I fell down before his feet to worship him. He said to me, Look! Don’t do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.

    11) I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war.

    12) His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself.

    13) He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called The Word of God.

    14) The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen.

    15) Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with a rod of iron. He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty.

    16) He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

    17) I saw an angel standing in the sun. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the sky, Come! Be gathered together to the great supper of God, b

    18) that you a may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, and small and great.

    19) I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army.

    20) The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.

    21) The rest were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, the sword which came forth out of his mouth. All the birds were filled with their flesh.

    1) I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.

    2) He seized the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole inhabited earth, and bound him for a thousand years,

    3) and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were finished. After this, he must be freed for a short time.

    4) I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as didn’t worship the beast nor his image, and didn’t receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with Christ for the thousand years.

    5) The rest of the dead didn’t live until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

    6) Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with him one thousand years.

    7) And after the thousand years, Satan will be released from his prison,

    8) and he will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

    9) They went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. Fire came down out of heaven from God, and devoured them.

    10) The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

    11) I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them.

    12) I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.

    13) The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works.

    14) Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.

    15) If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

    1) I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.

    2) I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband.

    3) I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, Behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

    4) He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away.

    5) He who sits on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new. He said, Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.

    8) But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, a idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

    9) One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who were loaded with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me, saying, Come here. I will show you the wife, the Lamb’s bride.

    10) He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,

    11) having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, as if it was a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

    12) having a great and high wall; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.

    13) On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

    14) The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

    15) He who spoke with me had for a measure, a golden reed, to measure the city, its gates, and its walls.

    17) Its wall is one hundred forty-four cubits, c by the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.

    18) The construction of its wall was jasper. The city was pure gold, like pure glass.

    21) The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Each one of the gates was made of one pearl. The street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

    22) I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple.

    23) The city has no need for the sun, neither of the moon, to shine, for the very glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.

    24) The nations will walk in its light. The kings of the earth bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.

    25) Its gates will in no way be shut by day (for there will be no night there),

    26) and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it so that they may enter.

    Fascinating "end-times" beliefs of some fundamentalist, "evangelical" Christians


    - by Norio Hayakawa

    One of the main characteristics of America's Neo-Conservative movement (although it seems to have lost its momentum these days) with the backing of Fundamentalist/"Evangelical" Christians, is their total support of Israel through the belief that contemporary Israel is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies and the the U.S. must continue to support the State of Israel, no matter what.
    A large number of America's Fundamentalist Christians and "Evangelicals", therefore,
    believe that we are living in the "end-time" period of God prophetic calendar. I think that it is important to point out some of the "end-time" scenarios as envisioned by the supporters of this view.

    Here is the typical order of prophetic events to come, as outlined by many Fundamentalist Christians and "Evangelicals" who hold on to the so-called Pre-Millenial, Dispensationalist, Pre-Tribulation viewpoints


    They seem to believe that this could easily begin with the escalation of the Middle East conflict, involving Israel. There is no doubt in my mind that Iran and Syria will initially play a major role in this conflict.
    The Ezekiel 38 scenario includes the attempted invasion into Israel by all Islamic forces (led and orchestrated by the northern-most power, i.e., Russia) and will conclude with a miraculous Israeli victory.
    They believe that it is suggested in the Bible that it will take 7 years to bury the dead from this unprecedented conflagration. (The U.S. could be involved, directly or indirectly in this conflagration, they explain).


    According to their belief, the Ezekiel 38 scenario will conclude with the appearance of the Anti-Christ who will create a Peace Treaty between Israel and the Palestinians (and all Islamic confederation).
    (It was recently reported that Iran's Ahmadinejad believes that he could be the one that could be welcoming the coming, long-awaited Islamic prophet, "Imam" - i.e., the "Anti-Christ", to the Fundamentalist Christians)


    They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario could also conclude with the simultaneous disappearance of millions of people from this earth, which will result in total chaos, confusion and fear among the global populace. This, they say, is the "Rapture". It will be a mysterious, mass "evacuation" of the believers to meet the Lord in "mid-air". (The physical bodies will be mysteriously and instantaneously converted to celestial bodies). In other words, "born-again" believers will be translated from one side to the other side, i.e., from the earthly plane to the heavenly dimension and will meet Jesus in "mid-air".
    The "Rapture" (from "raptare", to "snatch" away, as in the eagle "snatching" away her baby when danger comes and taking it away to a safer location, etc.), is a supernatural event clearly suggested in the Bible that has not happened yet in the history of mankind, but will be certain to happen, according to most of these pre-tribulationist/dispensationalist believers.
    It will be an inexplicable, instantaneous disintegration of all atomic particles of each of our cells of our tissues, i.e., the instant conversion of our physical body into a spiritual, celestial "body" which will be swooshed up into "mid-air". In other words, they believe that "in the twinkling of an eye", our physical bodies will go through a mysterious sudden transmogrification (a favorite word used by John Keel) and will be lifted up to meet the Lord in "mid-air". Our entire physical bodies (the tissues, the cells will go through a sudden, inexplicable atomic fission-type transformation, they say.
    They believe that the "Rapture" is a conduit prepared by God for us to escape the coming global wrath know as the Tribulation (comparable to the days of Noah, when God safely placed a few faithful believers in the ark first and then caused the rain to downpour thereafter).
    Pre-tribulationist/dispensationalists believe that this unprecedented event will take place simultaneously with the appearance (the revealing) of the Anti-Christ. The Anti-Christ will not be able to come to power until the "body of believers" (together with the presence of the Holy Spirit) is removed from this earth. Only then, at that moment, can the Anti-Christ come into power.
    The "Rapture" will literally be a celestial wedding, the union of the bride (the "church" or the "body of believers") and the Groom (Jesus Christ). This "wedding" celebration in the air will last for 7 days, which could be equivalent to 7 earthly years.

    Directly related or not to this "Rapture" concept, there is an interesting item written by the Bard of Ely entitled:



    When the Anti-Christ appears on global emergency TV news conference, many of these Fundamentalist Christians say that he would calm down the frightened people of the earth with his ingenious, well-calculated explanation regarding the sudden disappearance of millions of people from the earth; this could be when "UFOs" are brought up; the Anti-Christ could use some type of "extraterrestrial" intervention explanation. (By the way, in the U.S., the majority of the so-called Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians hold on to the viewpoint that somehow the "UFO" phenomenon is "Satanic" or "diabolical". These groups seem to believe that "UFOs" will play a major role in these future biblical prophecies. Some theorists even believe that if a global government of some sort is to be set up intentionally (by force) in the future, there are several ways to accomplish it. Creating wars is one example, they say. Creating other series of "crises" is another, such as manipulating natural global catastrophes, or even creating artificial ones. We all heard of the "ORDO AB CHAOS" theory. They also point out that Henry Kissinger at one time suggested that should the world suddenly face an external threat (i.ei., from "outer space") whether REAL or PROMULGATED, it would accelerate a cry for a global unified government. They say that Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev also had allegedly made such similar remarks, that if the world is faced with such an extraterrestrial threat, we will all forget our differences and be united as one to defend this earth from such threats. Can the "world government" stage a deceptive, "alien-contact-landing" scenario? If the secret government were to stage such a fake, "extraterrestrial" type of event, it would definitely be beneficial to them if there remains an adamant element of society who have always believed in "UFOs" and "aliens"). In any case, Fundamentalist, "Evangelical" Christians seem to believe that somehow the Anti-Christ will come up with a brilliant, convincing explanation for the "Rapture" event and that somehow, (supernaturally) the world will have a sigh of relief by his explanation.


    That will be the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation Period (i.e., the "New World Order" of the Anti-Christ, the first half of which will be relatively peaceful, and the second half of which will be an iron-fisted rule of the Anti-Christ, who will declare himself to be God at mid-point).


    Towards the end of the 7th year, nations such as Red China (and the rest of the "Kings of the East") will challenge the dictatorship of Anti-Christ's Europe-based New World Order and will begin to cross the Euphrates and make a move towards the valley of Megiddo.
    This battle, the battle of Armageddon, will be the final global battle.
    During the climax of this battle, celestial forces led by Jesus Christ (and accompanied by those who had been "raptured") will descend and will destroy all earthly forces.


    Jesus Christ will rule from Israel for a 1000 years. This is the Millennial Kingdom.


    At the end of the 1000 years, there will be a minor rebellion by the descendants of those who may have survived the Armageddon and continued to procreate, thus having physical bodies. That minor rebellion will be crushed by God.


    This is the gist of the events to occur in the near future, according to many of the so-called Fundamentalist, Dispensationalist, Evangelical, Pre-Millenial and Pre-Tribulational Christians.
    Is this all wild, "science fiction"?
    Maybe. But again, no one knows.
    Does it hurt to believe in this "unbelievable" scenario?
    These "Evangelical" Christians seem to say that it won't hurt at all to believe that such scenarios could come true.
    They say that they have nothing to lose by believing in it even if it doesn't come true, but everything to gain if it indeed takes place, if one is a believer. Personally I subscribe to this viewpoint


    President Bush in An Ancient Land!

    Recently, President George W. Bush arrived in the State of Israel on what he referred to as a “peace mission.” His date of arrival was January 8th, 2008, a new moon and the first day of the Hebrew month Shevat. This is the eleventh month in the Hebrew calendar. In addition to that, forty years have now passed since the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967. With those numbers in mind: first day, eleventh month, and forty years, consider the words of Deuteronomy 1:3 & 8, as follows: “And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the Lord had given him in commandment unto them……Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.”

    I find it rather remarkable that President Bush would show up on that very day with the intention of not only dividing the ancient land to create a Palestinian State, but also to divide the city of Jerusalem itself! President Bush set forth a checklist for creating the new State of Palestine, which would force the State of Israel to give up the West Bank, Golan Heights, and East Jerusalem. (18) Is President Bush by his actions catapulting us into World War III and bringing forth the final fulfillment of Scripture? This is a touchy and sensitive issue for Jews and the Moslem world. It is Jerusalem that is the prime point of contention. In Zechariah 12:2-3 we read as follows: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

    When President Bush arrived in Israel, he was presented a document called Megillat Bush, or the Bush Scroll. It was presented by the New Jewish Congress, the Sanhedrin, and the Holy Temple and Temple Mount movements. The scroll declared and reasserted Divine right for the Jews to have an undivided land of Israel and city of Jerusalem. I have a copy of this scroll in front of me, and the striking thing about it is the title by which President Bush is called. The two lines preceding the second paragraph of the scroll read as follows: “Esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, The Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal. (Ezekiel 38:1) Leader of the West.” (19) Why would the high councils of the State of Israel call President Bush by this title? Ezekiel 38:1-3 reads as follows: “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” The remainder of the chapter goes on to tell us that this “chief prince” brings forth a great war in the Middle East, involving many nations. Are we, at this very time, witnessing the fulfillment of some of the last prophecy? How much more specific can it get?

    We also know that President Bush is continually railing against Iran as a great threat to peace. Will this Gog of the land of Magog, the chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal, start a war with Iran? If he does, we must all take note of the fact that on December 27th, 2007, Russia declared that they would supply Iran with full air defense. The Russian High Command also issued the following statement: “Our capabilities outstrip the U.S. Patriot missile system. The S-300 missile systems could inflict significant damage to the U.S. or Israeli forces were they to attack Iran.” (20)

    I must mention one more amazing thing that comes to mind when I consider the title given to President Bush by the high officials in the State of Israel. When George W. Bush stole the election for the first time and became President, I was in contact with a person whose late father had been a member of the secret order known as the Skull and Bones. This woman had the documents to prove what she was saying, and there is no way I will ever release her name to anyone. Here let it be noted that when George W. Bush was initiated in the Tomb of the Skull & Bones at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, he was given a new name, even as all initiates are given a new name upon completion of their initiation. The name given to George W. Bush was Magog!...


    I guess it's time to read The Bible.

    Gog, Magog, and the Scroll of Bush

    "And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal."

    Ezekiel 38:1-3
    "And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord."

    Ezekiel 39:6

    An historic event occurred in Jerusalem this January, an event chronicled widely in Israel's newspapers but omitted entirely by America's Zionist controlled and owned press. President George W. Bush, visiting the nation of Israel, was presented with a rabbinical decree, the Scroll of Bush. The Scroll declared that he, Bush, is none other than the prophesied Gog, of the land of Magog; that is, Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal.

    Even as America's economic crisis grew deeper, with hundreds of thousands losing their homes due to mortgage foreclosures, the U.S. stock market sliding south, the U.S. dollar sinking like a rock against foreign currencies, and labor statistics showing unemployment rising as more and more American workers are laid off and manufacturing sent overseas, our President George W. Bush embarked on Air Force One on an eight day trip to Israel.

    Yes, like bloody Roman Emperor Nero, who reportedly fiddled while Rome burned, a callous and indifferent George Bush left a desperate country and people gasping for breath to go to the Middle East and consult with his superiors—Zionist rabbinical overlords.

    Arriving on 666, a Prophetically Appropriate Date

    He arrived in Jerusalem 1/09/08, numerically translated in occult numerology as 666. On 1/11 (the 11th of January), he and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert, along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, were taken down into the earth, inside Zedekiah's Cave, for a clandestine ritual and black mass conducted by the Grand Master of Israel's Freemasons. The same day, Bush visited Yad Vashem, Israel's version of the Holocaust Museum, where he stayed exactly 90 minutes, a number again translating into 666.

    George W Bush with Israeli Flag
    While in Jerusalem, President Bush and Prime Minister Olmert met with the press and referred to several key dates approaching. March 20th would signal the Jewish holy day of Purim, commemorating the mass murder and genocide by the Jews of more than 75,000 Gentile "enemies" of Persia (Iran) in the days of the Jews' Queen Esther. On May 8, Israel celebrates its 60th anniversary. Finally, President Bush predicted that by the end of his term in 2009 (2x9=18, translating again, into that number 666), there will be a peace treaty between the Palestinians and the Israelis. The treaty will insure that the Palestinians will forever be squeezed into their pitiful, apartheid, poverty-stricken ghettos, while the victorious Jews enjoy the fruits of their crimes, luxuriously living in an enlarged, Greater Israel.

    But those things were not the most significant that happened during Bush's historic visit. No, that occurred on the third day when, at a banquet, President Bush was presented with the Scroll of Bush, a document made out on ancient parchment and signed by the three most spiritually prominent Jews on planet earth:

    • Rabbi Adin Steinzaltz, High Priest of the Sanhedrin
    • Rabbi Haim Richman, Chief Rabbi of the Holy Temple
    • Dr. Gadi Eschel, Chief Representative of The New Jewish Congress
    The Scroll of Bush (Page 1)
    The Scroll of Bush identifying the U. S. President as the "esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekial 38:1) Leader of the West!" (Click to enlarge)
    The Scroll of Bush, the first page of which is pictured here, pompously claims to be promulgated, "In the Name of the Lord, Eternal God." Of course, this is not Jesus Christ, since the Jews hate and despise Jesus Christ and brand him an illegitimate bastard and blasphemer in their Judaic Holy Law, the Talmud. Jesus himself said their "Lord" is, in fact, the Devil!

    Bush Identified as Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal

    The Scroll goes on to address Bush as, "The Honorable Mr. George W. Bush, President of the United States of America." Then, however, in a most shocking and prophetic manner, the Scroll of Bush, a document representing the entire Jewish nation both in Israel and dispersed throughout the world, a document composed by and authenticated by the highest religious rabbis on the planet, addressed Bush by yet another title:
    "Esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekiel 38:1), Leader of the West!"

    Oh my, oh my. This is an occult mystery of tremendous prophetic significance, one so incredibly deep and so stunningly revealing that I am offering to my friends this month an exhaustive 60-minute audiotape/CD investigative report, carefully and fully explaining what all this means (Gog, Magog, and the Scroll of Bush—Jewish Sanhedrin Honors President George W. Bush as "Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal" Tape or CD).

    There can be no doubt that President Bush knows exactly why he holds the satanic title of "Gog, of the land of Magog," also known as Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal. The "Leader of the West," as the Rabbis also put it, "shall be incarnated and possessed by Satan himself in the last days. The Scriptures say he, as Chief Prince, "shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea" (Revelation 20:7-8).

    Bush toasts Israeli Prime Minister Olmert
    President George W. Bush toasts Israeli Prime Minister Olmert during a visit to Jerusalem where Bush was presented the Scroll of Bush honoring him as Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal; That makes Bush "Gog, of the land of Magog."

    "Magog" of Skull and Bones

    The Tomb: Home to the Skull and Bones
    The Tomb, the mausoleum-like dwelling of the 15 bonesmen chosen each year to become favored alumni of the Order of Skull and Bones. Both President George Bush, Sr. and his son, President George W. Bush, were initiated into this secret society. Each was given a secret name and Senior Bush’s name was Magog.
    Decades ago, as George Bush, Sr., lay naked in a coffin, inside the bowels of the Tomb, the macabre, mausoleum residence of the Order of Skull and Bones, located next to the old town cemetery in New Haven, Connecticut, his fellows performed a hellish death ritual and raised George from his sarcophagus. They gave him, as they do all initiates, a new name. Hence more, George Herbert Walker Bush would secretly be known by the Brotherhood as "Magog."

    Now, on a mission for his infernal Lord Lucifer, comes President George W. Bush, son of the bonesman named "Magog," to Jerusalem, Israel. There, the chief religious officials—including the High Priest of the reconvened Sanhedrin, the same devilish body that so long ago commanded that Jesus our Lord be tortured and crucified on a primitive wooden cross—recognized and honored Mr. Bush as Gog, of the land of Magog, Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekiel 38:1).

    The Unwise Haven't a Clue

    Imagine: Three hundred million people residing in the U.S.A. and only a few—the wise who believe and honor the word of God and the Lord's prophetic scriptures—are able to understand the profound nature of such a cardinal event. Of course, the rabbis and the Masons of Israel, disciples of Satan—they know. But America's Senators and Congressmen, America's TV news celebrities, America's radio talk show personalities, and the dumbed-down, Christ-rejecting masses—they haven't a clue.

    The wise and informed, however, understand and shall be rewarded. But the careless and wicked shall perish in their ignorance and stupidity. Such is truth. Such is prophecy.

    "And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."

    Daniel 12:9-10
