THE GATES OF HELL

When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matt 16:13-18

Copyright 2011 In most cases, I have retained the words and syntax of the King James scripture references as they appear. On occasion, and only after careful study, a word is changed in order to reveal a more accurate rendering. The anglicized name Jesus is replaced with Yahshua throughout. Likewise, the Holy name of God, Yahweh, replaces the generic term God. If this offends you, know that I am offended by those who, in willful disobedience to His Word, would defy His command to praise, fear, love, trust in, swear by, walk in and call upon the blessed holy name of Yahweh our Creator, Sovereign, Redeemer and King. To omit the name of God, or worse, to use an indistinct substitute, is a blasphemy more cursed than to deny Him altogether.

The end times is a confusing subject. One of the reasons for the confusion is due to the fact that prophecy often anticipates future events that will occur in a setting that didnt exist when the prophecy was written. How would the prophet Ezekiel have described an inter-continental ballistic missile or a nuclear exchange? How would John the Beloved have described communism, modern weaponry, suicide bombers or biological weapons? Students of prophecy throughout the ages have scratched their heads reading prophecies predicting events that will take place in a milieu that didnt exist in their day. They had no basis for anticipating or even understanding how those prophecies could possibly come to pass. Even in our own day future prophecies which may come to pass just a couple decades from now might seem absolutely baffling! Technology is continually advancing, political winds change, social acceptability standards shift, and even science has been redefined as we move forward into the time of the end. Fortunately there are milestones, patterns, signs of the times, making it possible to anticipate and recognize prophesied events when they come to pass. The book of Revelation was dictated by Yahshua (Jesus) himself. The Koin Greek word for Revelation is the word apocalypse, meaning unveiling. The express purpose of the book is to reveal, not to obscure or hide what will come to pass. Its an extremely orderly book, and follows a pattern flawlessly. Much of the book is past history, even a portion chronicling future events has already come to pass. We are now living in that period of time anticipated by the book of Revelation. Recent history has borne out the predictions in Revelation. Another reason for the confusion about end-times events is that until now it hasnt been possible to understand the pattern of the ages appointed to this creation. Events transpiring around us fulfill daily what Revelation anticipated. The book is teeming with trip-wire terms that lead us into concepts and principles found throughout the Bible. Revelation acts as an outline, putting these into their proper context and perspective. Imagine you ordered all the materials necessary to build a house. If the roof shingles arrived first, you couldnt install them because you dont have a roof to put them on. The framing cant go up until the foundation is laid. Everything must be done in its proper order. Without a knowledge of the proper order, a house cant be built. Biblical prophecy is like that. Even understanding an orderly book like Revelation requires a knowledge of the pattern God has embedded in his word from the very first verse. This book is dedicated to revealing the encryption, the pattern, that is the key to unlocking prophecy. It is my sincere desire that all who read this book will gain a deeper knowledge of our creator, sovereign, redeemer and king. 5

Introduction
I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Do you get the feeling that even though Jesus [Yahshua] assured us they wont succeed, it is strongly implied here that theyre going to try like hell? Hitler himself said, "Let me control the textbooks and I will control the state.1 If you were the Father of Lies and it was your goal to fortify the gates of your stronghold against the people of the living God, would control over the educational establishment be on your short list of things to do? William Blackstone, the writer of the definitive treatise on common law, which our forefathers relied upon heavily to establish the Constitution of the United states of America, considered Gods Law as binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid derive all their force, and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original"2. If you were the Prince of this World would you consider it important to replace Gods authority over government with a substitute that instead seeks to exclude God? In Prov. 11:1, Solomon, arguably the wisest man who ever lived, said: A false balance is abomination to Yahweh7: but a just weight is his delight. If you were the Deceiver would you want to gain control over banking and commerce to direct wealth solely to the advancement of your purposes while harassing and impeding the purposes of the righteous? In Luke 4:8 Jesus (Yahshua) speaking directly to Satan said: It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. If you were the Murderer From The Beginning would you promote a false prophet and a false religion whose end is to divert people away from salvation and into a path that leads to death and hell while justifying the murder of those who will not convert? Well; if you were the father of lies, the Prince of this World, the deceiver and murderer, and your goal was to replace truth with falsehood, you would ultimately fail. Gods Word is truth. Truth is absolute. Just as there are physical laws that function as absolutes in this universe, there are spiritual laws that are absolute and incontrovertible. Consider the physical law of equilibrium. An ice cube becomes warmer as the drink becomes cooler. As in temperature, so in gravity, every day the sun upsets the equilibrium of the earth, and every day the forces of nature again seek their own level. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. (Eccl 1:7) Natures forces seek the course of least resistance as they find the place where a balance is found. There they remain at rest until they are again disturbed. We refer to the balance of nature in recognition of the fact that all facets of nature are self-regulating, each finding their balance. Truth and error mirror this balance. There is a code for moral and ethical conduct that has come to be known as natural law. Mr. Blackstone considered this as dictated by God (Yahweh) himself2. The dynamic of an imbalance, whether in truth or in nature, sets into motion a process whereby the imbalance runs a course back to equilibrium. 6

Since the fall of Adam there have been people and nations whose ideologies have run contrary to Yahwehs truth. These individuals, cultures or societies were not at rest. Any departure from Yahwehs command will fester into malignancy and decay, intensify to a point of destruction, or progress through stages of discovery until the deviation is purged and equilibrium restored. Jesus (Yahshua) spoke about the gates of hell that wouldnt prevail against His Church. Why wouldnt they prevail? They cannot prevail because His Church is built upon the foundation of Christ, the Son of the living God who is the way, the truth and the life. Truth isnt relative, neither is it flexible. Truth is the standard and balance; it is the equilibrium, so to speak, of the universe. Christs Church is built upon the one who is the way, the truth and the life; anything contrary is divergent from Yahwehs order and can never succeed. Anything contrary must, and will, succumb to the eventual and ultimate restoration of equilibrium. In this book we will identify the strong delusion prophesied by Paul in his epistle to the Thessalonians; the gates of hell which will, in time, run aground upon the rock of Jesus Christ (Yahshua HMashiyach). The lie cannot prevail because it is a deviation from Yahwehs truth, justice, equity and love; the unmovable rock that will grind them to powder. Sound science bears out the truth of Yahwehs Word, valid Government derives its authority from Yahwehs Law, equitable commerce prospers best when the light of God (Yahweh) is brightest and true religion gives glory to the creator of life, the giver of the law, the one who paid the price for our sin who will reign throughout the ages to come.

CHAPTER 1

DEFINING TERMS
What Is The Church
The word church is the translation of the Greek word ekklesia. Ekklesia is a compound word made from the root word kaleo5, from which we get our English word called. It is combined with the prepositional prefix ek, properly translated out, out of or out from. The church, therefore, is an assembly comprised solely of those who have been called out. The Church is a living organism, not an organization. Christ is the head of this body, and Christians are members in particular. There can be only one church as there is only one Christ. When Jesus asked Peter in Matt 16:15 whom say ye that I am? Peter responded by saying Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Yahshua (Jesus) then made the pronouncement that it would be upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.6 If you are in a religious organization built upon any other foundation than Christ, the Son of the living God, you are not in Christs Church. If you are in a religious organization that has been built upon the foundation of a government granted 501(c)(3) corporation, it is not built upon the foundation of Christ, the Son of God (Yahweh). Every corporation must conform to laws written solely to advance the interests of the State. The writer of James 3:11 asks Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Gal 4:9 warns But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? If you are in a corporate religious group, you are involved with an organization that has forsaken the headship of Christ, the Son of God, and has placed themselves in bondage to the weak and beggarly elements of this world, consider 2 Cor 6:16-17b: God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord. Prov. 26:11 says; As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. If after having been called out into the body of Christ, a body of believers then incorporates, it has been re-venued back into the jurisdiction of the prince of this world. The required transformation into the image of its new lord creates a two-headed monster. One head desires to drink from the river of living water; the others sole refreshment is its own vomit. Every corporation must conform to rules and codes not required of living men and women. Here are the Ten Commandments handed down by the 501(c)(3) churchs new lord, the State: I. Thou shalt not attempt to influence legislation either directly or indirectly. II. Thou shalt not talk to legislators about legislation III. Thou shalt not engage in activities related to non legislative decisions, such as opposing or supporting the issuance of regulations IV. Thou shalt not make available the results of nonpartisan studies

V. VI. VII. VIII. IX.

Thou shalt not respond to requests to testify before legislative committees Thou shalt not support or oppose political candidates Thou shalt not engage in partisan political campaign activities Thou shalt not distribute partisan "voter education" information Thou shalt not attempt to persuade the public one way or the other on candidates or issues X. Thou shalt not allow groups or individuals to use your facilities and equipment to campaign for candidates What is the motivation to incorporate? Mammon. The State grants certain economic benefits like the ability to sue and be sued at law, the ability to have a church bank account, hire employees, the ability to purchase and own land, and of course, tax exempt status. Codes governing corporations have requirements that dictate how the corporation must be organized, how they are governed and how they must function. Luke 16:13 tells us that No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. KJV When a body of believers organizes as a corporation, even a non-profit taxexempt religious corporation, such as a corporation sole or a 501(c)(3), it is a fiction, becomes a servant of government and ceases to be governed by Yahweh. It is no longer part of the body over which Christ is the head, it becomes a corporation according to government codes, statutes, rules and regulations, and its head becomes the State, its creator. By incorporating, the church cedes authority to the State. But by this act of submission, it bestows upon the State authority over all areas of church operation. The church organization can no longer be accountable solely to Christs commands, which are superseded by any command the State may choose to place upon it. The States Ten Commandments conform the church into the image of the State to carry out its will, purpose and intent. This church can no longer obey the Great Commission; the 501(c)(3) must grovel before its new lord as it carries out the contrition commission. In the eyes of the law ordained of men it has become a fiction, an organization; it is no longer a living organism with Christ as its head. The corporations master doesnt care about religious issues, all corporations are under their jurisdiction, and they are the sole authority over all corporations. As the High Priest of Israel ceded the priesthood to Rome by the declaration We have no King but Caesar, so has the 501(c)(3) declared; We have no Lord but the Prince of this World by the decision to incorporate. Just as the Jews were evicted from the land of promise by their new Lord, so the Laodicean State church has been evicted from their place before Christ among the 24 elders. The irony is that a church that hasnt incorporated is tax immune and free from all the rules, regulations, codes and statutes that the government creates! The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America declares, Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof. This includes tax laws! The true church has no obligation to pay tax! Gifts and donations made by members of the body are entirely tax deductible. But by incorporating, they hand over authority to the State to both grant their tax exemption, and

to take it away! The Free Church is free indeed from any meddling on the part of the State and federal governments! Many 501(c)(3) church leaders reading this book right now are putting it down and muttering something like This guy doesnt know anything about the business of running a church. However, if its a business, its precisely what Christ drove out of the Temple, and it is not Christs church. Contrariwise, if its Christs church, its not a business. I make no apology for the position I must take. I am sorry for any church leader who has a concrete mind with respect to their decision to remove themselves from the authority of Christ, the Son of the living God, and place themselves under the authority of man, and the governments created by men. (In case you dont know what a concrete mind is, its a mind that has been thoroughly mixed up, and permanently set.) As Esau sold his birthright to his brother for a mess of pottage, this church, (falsely so-called), has forsaken their birthright by organizing as a corporation, and, as all corporations, it is a creation of the State. It is, therefore, no longer free to function as part of Christs Church, it is in subjugation to another lord. As such, it is not, and cannot be, a threat to the gates of hell. In organizing as a State-defined organization, they have entered into a covenant with the very forces that cannot prevail against the true church. If you are part of such an organization, become a Berean* and get out of that impotent organization posing as Christs church. *Acts 17:11 [The Bereans] were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Certainly I do not advocate forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, but if you cannot find a fellowship where Christ is the head over the body of believers, start or attend a home fellowship where you can meet with other Christians to provoke one another to good works through exhortation and prayer. In short, a 501(c)(3) church cannot freely preach Christ, His Kingdom or His Truth. They must honor first and foremost the prince of this world, his kingdom and his lie. They have removed the armor of a Christian (Eph 6) and have turned their swords into plowshares before the victory is won. Being unarmed and vulnerable, they are a liability to Christs purpose to assault the gates of the enemy. As Joshua hamstrung the purposes of Yahweh by making a covenant with the Gibeonites, so have these hamstrung the purposes of Yahweh by making a covenant with the enemy of our souls. Ive heard it said that healthy sheep reproduce, but these have made themselves eunuchs in Christs flock. Matt 22:14 says, many are called, but few are chosen, but if youre talking about 501(c)(3) churches, it can only be said that many are cold, and a few are frozen.

What Are The Gates of Hell


In the ancient world, cities were surrounded by a wall. The gate was the primary means to gain entry into a city. Because it was designed to defend against hostile intruders, city gates were often heavily defended. A large city often had more than one gate, each having similar strategic defenses against any who would forcibly enter the city. Some cities had narrow vertical openings flanking the approach to the gate designed to protect archers as they launched their arrows at the unwelcome. Some gates had vantage points above them, providing defenders a tactical advantage from which stones could be thrown, or hot burning oil dumped.

10

The Bible gives us an example of the effectiveness of the gate of a city: In an attempt to cover up his sin with a married woman, David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah. And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die. 2 Sam 11:14-15 Joab knew exactly where to position Uriah so that he would be killed . . . near the gate of the city. 16 And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were. 2 Sam 11:16 Here, then, is the explanation to David explaining Uriahs death: we were upon them even unto the entering of the gate. And the shooters shot from off the wall upon thy servants; and some of the king's servants be dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also. 2 Sam 11:23-24 The gate of a city, therefore, is a formidable rampart favoring the defender. In Matt 16:18 Yahshua (Jesus) said, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. In order for this parable to make sense, it must be understood that a gate is a fixed defensive position, not an offensive weapon system. When Yahshua (Jesus) said, I will build my church, hes not talking about building his church at some remote location far removed from the gates under discussion. When you consider the nature of a city gate, Yahshuas (Jesus) statement can mean only one thing; the church is an offensive force, not a stationary structure. Christ is not building a castle off in the distance; hes recruiting an assault force! By definition both here as well as in the Great Commission, the church of Yahshua (Jesus) is indeed an offensive force designed, provisioned and equipped to mount an assault on the very gates of the walled city of hell. Is hell, therefore, a city? Answer me this: Is heaven a mustard seed? (Matt 13:31,) Just as heaven is not a literal mustard seed, hell is not a literal city. Yahshua (Jesus) simply used this parable as a device to communicate more clearly its character so we could understand better through imagery this facet of its nature. So, in the imagery of gates and cities, Christs church is an offensive force whose purpose is to mount strategic assaults upon the gates of the walled city of hell. Lets explore what the gates and walls of hell are defending in order to grasp the concept of this city in the context of Yahshuas (Jesus) parable. To understand what the gates of hell are defending, its necessary to understand the nature of the defender. 2 Thess 2:3-4 says: 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. Our adversary is the one who would oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped. He aspires to sit in the temple of God showing himself that he is God. Therefore, there is truth, and there is one that opposes and exalts himself against the truth.

11

Let us turn to Isa 60:18 to examine the gates of the coming Kingdom of our Lord: Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. Here we find that the walls established by Yahweh are Salvation, and His gates are Praise. Further, violence shall no more be heard in His land, nor wasting or destruction. What would we expect to find if we were to examine the gates, walls and nature of Satans counterfeit kingdom? Would the walls of his city be designed to turn men away from the path that leads to salvation? Would his gates direct mens praise away from Yahweh and to himself as he seeks to be like the most high? In 2 Thess 2:11-12 we read that Yahweh shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a (the) lie: Of the many mistranslations of the King James Version of the New Testament, the replacement of the word the (direct object) with the word a (an indirect object) in this passage is one of the more serious. It is not a lie that is the subject of this verse, but the lie. What is the lie, and who is it that perpetrates this lie? In 2 Thess 2:9-10 we read about him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Confronting his adversaries in John 8:42-45, Yahshua said unto them, If Yahweh were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from Yahweh; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. From this we know that Satan is the father of lies, there are those whose lusts blind them from receiving the truth and that those who believe the lie cannot believe the truth, and this prevents them from being saved. The Gates of Hell, therefore, are the defensive positions designed to protect The Lie from the assaults of Christs church. The defenders of the gates of hell are those equipped with the lie.

What Is The Lie


What is the strong delusion, the lie, that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness? A lie is anything that isnt the truth. There is only one truth; everything else is a lie. But what is the lie specifically? The lie is the foundational basis for the rejection of the truth. The serpent told the first lie when he said, Yea, hath God said? Eve didnt hear Gods command to Adam firsthand; the command to Adam occurred before Eve was formed. When the serpent questioned the veracity of Eves belief that God commanded not to eat of the tree in the midst of the Garden, he was contradicting Adam; in other words, he was calling Adam a liar. How often have you heard the bible is full of contradictions or some other

12

allegation that the Word of God is flawed or unreliable? The purpose of these contentions is to make the case that God doesnt exist. The lie, therefore, is that God doesnt exist. Atheism is the name of the belief that no God or gods exist. Anyone with a world-view constructed upon a foundation of atheism has no choice but to reject true science and embrace the pseudoscience of spontaneous generation, that life simply arose as a complete self-replicating organism capable of increasing in complexity. To believe such fanciful nonsense requires great faith, faith that must extinguish every fact and truth that gets in the way. Such a conceptual framework must reject absolutes in favor of relativism, and can lead to no other conclusion but moral equivalence, which is forced to accept that any behavior as acceptable (including rape, abortion, homosexuality, theft, oppression, slavery and even murder) and then considers its victims as nothing more than the losers in the struggle for life. Lets contrast the foundational basis for understanding The Truth against the lie that stands in opposition to the truth of Yahwehs Word:

The Truth of Origins


Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. The first verse in the Bible succinctly sums up the origin of time, space, matter and energy, attributing the creation of our material universe to the design of Elohim. An investment of careful thought and consideration of the creation around us cannot lead to any other possibility. C.S. Lewis book Mere Christianity quite logically demonstrated this.

The Lie of Origins


What is the lie? Since it is difficult to tell a lie of such grandiose proportions without being found out, The Lie must cover up its flaws through deception. The communist manifesto is based upon the foolish assertion that the matter in the universe has always existed. Since the time this assertion was set forth, atoms have been analyzed and it has been discovered that a great deal of energy is required to hold them together. Since it is demonstrable that no energy source is perpetual, the energy holding atoms together must be decaying, and thus they must have had a point of origin. The new explanation, therefore, is that in the beginning . . . nothing. Unless I missed something, this is the new explanation of those who would attribute everything we see around us to a series of unguided coincidences with no purpose or meaning. These maintain (with variations to the theme) that an intersection of dimensions resulted in an explosion of great force from literally no matter whatsoever. The result of this big bang, through epochs of billions of years, is imagined to have produced the complex interrelationships between heavenly bodies, complicated biological order and intricate symbiotic systems we call the balance of life involving innumerable diverse living things. All this without any direction from any intelligent source, but, rather, with no intentional or intelligent input from anything or anybody anywhere at all. Just as the Bible begins to tell the truth with a foundational premise, so does the lie begin with this foundational premise. Just as the truth of Yahweh is built upon the 13

foundation of Genesis 1:1 and the introduction of time, space and matter by the power of an intelligent, loving, purposeful creator, so the lie is built upon a foundation of anarchy and chaos with no guiding force, intelligence or designer whatsoever. These two conceptual frameworks are polar opposites. And what are the implications of each? Yahwehs Truth requires that all aspects of the universe are the way they are because He designed them to suit His purposes. Gen 2:1 tells us that The heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. Yahweh created the host of the heavens and the earth. He created the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, the beast of the field, and every living thing that moveth upon the earth. This is the science of Yahwehs Truth. What is the science of the lie? That a series of unguided mistakes and entirely random accidents resulted in the millions of varieties of plants, animals and microorganisms that all interact to form a balance of nature, but no intelligence had a hand in the establishment of their intricate order, all in complete disregard for the fundamental observed laws of physics.

The Truth of Government


If we build upon the acknowledgement of a purposeful creator, we would necessarily establish a government which has as its foundation the principles of Yahwehs law, knowing that we are accountable to our creator and will stand before him in judgment on the last day. Yahweh gave us his perfect law contained in the five books of the Torah. Among Christians, the Law of Moses is a point of heated debate, so I will summarize as briefly as I know how so we can put a potentially divisive issue behind us: How should a Christian, a gentile believer in the Jewish Messiah, regard the Law of Moses? Eph 2:8-9 says For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. KJV It is important to remember, however, to enhance our knowledge of salvation by considering Titus 2:11-12 which says For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; It is, therefore, safe to conclude that salvation is not by works, but those who are in Christ will live soberly, righteously and godly in this present world. So what is the standard, what is the measure? How do we know what is expected of us in this regard? Lets take a look at Acts 15:19-21: 21 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to Yahweh: 20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day. Upon conversion, gentile believers were to be burdened with no more than four guidelines to facilitate being called out from the world, the flesh and the devil. The

14

meaning of verse 21 is abundantly clear that they would naturally attend a synagogue where Moses is read, for in every city he is preached. What is, therefore, a Christians obligation when it comes to the Law given to Moses? Without examining each of the 613 laws contained in the Torah, lets instead examine them as if they could be divided into four general categories: 1. Laws that have a physical cause and effect association, which benefit us solely in the flesh. Im sure that because Yahweh loves us, it grieves him that we take harm in our body because we are ignorant of these laws, or we choose to disobey them, but disobedience to these laws wont otherwise affect our relationship with Yahweh. Laws of this nature include the sanitary laws and the dietary laws. Understanding the nature of these laws helps us to understand the concern our loving heavenly father has for us, and this then serves to guide us in decisions regarding other things we know to be harmful to the flesh. Though Moses didnt mention tobacco or smoking, it should be a forgone conclusion that if Yahweh cared so much that he didnt want us to harm ourselves by being exposed to too many germs by eating with unwashed hands, he certainly wouldnt want us to harm ourselves through the use of tobacco, marijuana, narcotics or any one of hundreds of harmful substances in our modern culture. 2. Laws involving the priesthood and the temple. For almost 2,000 years there has been no Jewish temple, and no Jewish priesthood. Therefore, at present, nobody CAN keep these laws. Not even Jews. 3. Laws involving symbolism. Laws like prohibitions against wearing wool/linen blend garments: Wool keeps one warm, linen keeps one cool, blending the two (in symbolism) is to be lukewarm. Hopefully youre reminded of Rev 3:15-16 where Christ said I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Or laws requiring binding the word of Yahweh upon the forehead or arm. We are to read the word and retain it at the forefront of our every decision, and apply it in everything we put our hand (arm) to. These are laws where we are to appreciate the symbolism and apply the principle, but not necessarily obey the letter literally. I do not fault those who do keep them literally; as they do so as an act of remembrance to keep the principle fresh in their minds. 4. Laws reflecting the nature and character of Yahweh. Adam was created in the image of Yahweh, so our salvation (restoration) involves a literal obedience to these laws so that we may be restored into the image of Yahweh. These would include laws reflecting the nature and character of Yahweh; his faithfulness, his righteousness, his steadfastness, his holiness. These are those laws from which our rights derive. If there were no commandment against murder, there would be no right to life. The command Thou shalt not steal establishes our right to property ownership. Six days shalt though work establishes our right to work and earn a living without the burden of involuntary taxation or

15

restrictions such as to social security requirements or mandatory labor union membership. Thou shalt not commit adultery establishes the right of all children to be born to married parents. Even believers who adamantly maintain, we arent under the law will concede that Christians are obligated to a moral code. While on one hand its fine to walk in love in response to Yahshuas admonition in Matt. 22:37-40, it is important to consider the warning in Prov. 14:12 that There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Jer. 17:9 Tells us this is because The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Those laws that reflect the nature and character of Yahweh, therefore, are the standard and basis for righteousness and holiness. Hos 14:9 asks: Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? and prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are righteous, and the just shall walk in them: but the wicked shall fall therein. Geneva Bible 1560 ed. True Government, therefore, derives its authority from Yahwehs revealed truth to man in that it is in agreement with His righteous Word, specifically those laws reflecting His righteous nature and character and the unalienable rights that emanate from them.

The Lie of Government


Government based upon the lie has no moral compass because its foundation has no purpose or direction. Void of any obligation to honor Yahweh, men who pursue power always seek to establish a master/slave relationship. Men have conceived many methods to rule over others. The most repulsive is false religion where the head honcho is to be considered a god; examples of this would be the Pharaohs of Egypt, the latter Caesars, or Jim Jones style cults. Totalitarian regimes exemplified by the Third Reich of Hitler or imperial Japan serve as other examples. Another example of a master/slave governing concept is that of monarchy. The idea of royalty has been employed throughout history with mixed results depending entirely upon the individual on the throne. Whether a true monarchy or an oligarchy, the result is the same; a ruling class utilizing their consolidation of arms against a disarmed populace. A monarchy is always exemplified by classes of people; the privileged and the peasantry, the royals and the subjects, the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, etc. These cast aside the fact that man is subject solely to his creator, all men being equally obligated to obey the law of YHVH, none born into servitude to other men, and none born to rule over other men. Perhaps this is what Jesus meant when he said The truth shall set you free. In our day, outright tyranny is usually cloaked in a sugar coated deception of Marxism (also known as communism, socialism, liberalism and lately, democracy). No matter the nomenclature, it will always result in the master/slave relationship between a ruling class, or dictator, and the masses, so in an attempt to be brief, I will here list the ten planks of the communist manifesto as the model for government based upon the lie. You will note that in each and every point, it is the direct opposite of the rights established by Yahwehs Word: 1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes. 2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

16

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance. 4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. 5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. 6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State. 7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. 8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. 9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country. 10. Free (meaning State funded and controlled) education for all children in public schools. Combination of education with industrial production. It will not come as a shock to anyone familiar with 20th century history that both communism and fascism liberally took it upon themselves to ignore Gods command Thou shalt not murder. History reveals that a governments rejection of Gods order most often means rejection of ALL Gods commands. The entire world responded to the brutality and genocide of Hitlers Third Reich, but far fewer are outraged at the untold millions of lives aborted since 9 men on the Supreme Court decided for the other two branches of the federal government, the 50 states and all the people therein that a womans right to choose is a private matter. (While a mans right to choose whether he should wear a motorcycle helmet is not!) Do we trust this government to decide who gets a replacement liver or kidney dialysis? Or which medication will be received by which category of people if there is a biological weapon attack? I always wonder why it is that only the most Marxist political candidates want universal health care. Whats their true intention considering their disdain for the Word of Yahweh and the people of Yahweh and his command concerning murder?

The Truth of Commerce


A just weight and balance are the LORD's: all the weights of the bag are his work. It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness. Prov. 16:11-12 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small. But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deut 25:13-16 A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. Prov 11:1 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

17

Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt. Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD. Lev 19:35-37 What, then, is a just weight and balance? A balance is a device comprised of a beam on a pivot with equal-weight trays on both sides. When a weight was placed on one side of a scale, the exact amount of product placed on the other side of the scale could be determined. This same principle extends to paper money. A dollar is a unit of measurement representing one ounce of silver8. As in the scale-balance, so in the dollar. A just weight is the same whether youre dealing with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker. A dollar is a unit of measurement; it represents one ounce of silver8.

The Lie of Commerce


He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? The LORD's voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it. Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable? Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights? For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth. Therefore also will I make thee sick in smiting thee, in making thee desolate because of thy sins. Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down shall be in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and that which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword. Mic 6:8-14 The same principles hold true whether youre dealing with weights and measures or dollars of silver. Just as unscrupulous men used heavier weights when buying and lighter weights when selling, the unscrupulous of our own day and age still strive to pervert the just weight and measure. Theyve accomplished it by replacing our use of genuine silver with so many paper dollars. Many trusting people still believe that paper money represents precious metals, kept safe in a vault somewhere, and that paper money can be redeemed for a consistent weight of silver or gold. This changed in 1933, but it is the concept of redemption that reveals the fraud. If a dollar can be redeemed for an ounce of silver, it is a genuine dollar, if it cannot be, it is counterfeit. Modern-day moneychangers have so greedily corrupted their way in the earth that theres not enough silver in the entire world to exchange for all the paper dollars that exist. With electronic funds transfer so prevalent in our society, these banksters (the moneychangers of our age) dont even have to go to the trouble or expense of printing dollars. Now, dollars are just blips on a computer screen that cost absolutely nothing to create!

18

This, however, is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wickedness of these corrupt banksters. The full extent of their corruption is far too voluminous for the limited intent of this work. For a thorough handling of money mechanics I recommend a book entitled The Creature from Jekyll Island by Edward Griffin.

The Truth of Religion


At His trial, Yahshua said to Pontius Pilate To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. At that point Pilate asked Yahshua What is truth? Had Pilate heard Yahshua preach, he would have heard Him say I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. The apostle John tells us The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. This is an elaboration of John 1:1, giving us greater clarity of His identity: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Yahweh, and the Word was Yahweh. But the most significant verse of all is that Yahshua brought us information pertaining to that which exists beyond our ability to know. John 1:18: No man hath seen Yahweh at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. In John 8:40 Yahshua further reinforced this when he framed the following allegation: But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of Yahweh: this did not Abraham. In John 14:9 Yahshua asserted, he that hath seen me hath seen the Father And in John 10:30 he clarified this beyond equivocation when he said I and my Father are one. In 1 Thess 2:13 Paul wrote when ye received the word of Yahweh which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of Yahweh Due to the inability of man to know that which exists beyond our event horizon, truth cannot be proven. It is, therefore, necessary to believe truth. This begs the question, Why is it important to believe the truth? The answer is: Because truth has been made discoverable. If truth were undiscoverable, it would not be important. It is because Yahweh has entered our time/space/matter dimension in order to reveal truth to us that a consequence now weighs upon us to believe truth. The most commonly quoted verse in the Bible is John 3:16: For Yahweh so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Yahweh warned the first man in Gen 2:17 that the consequence of disobedience to the one and only commandment given at that time would result in death. We know from Rom 1:18 who will perish, for the wrath of Yahweh is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Rom 1:25 further describes those Who changed the truth of Yahweh into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. We learn from 2 Peter 3:9 that The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. John 3:17-21 elaborates on the love of

19

Yahweh; For Yahweh sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of Yahweh. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in Yahweh. 1 Tim 4:3 spoke of them which believe and know the truth. John 4:24 tells us that Yahweh is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth Dan 9:13 gives us an insight into what is required in order to understand truth: As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before Yahweh our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth. Thats interesting; turning from iniquity results in an understanding of truth! Moses spoke of Yahweh in Deut 32:4, when he wrote: He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. In Ps 31:5 King David prayed Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Yahweh God of truth. Redemption from death is the result of turning from iniquity and believing the truth. These last three references pre-date the birth of the Son of Yahweh, so what are we to conclude regarding the redemption of those who believed the truth prior to Yahshua, the bearer of truth, being sent into the world? The logical conclusion is that time is irrelevant to truth, and redemption is not captive to chronological progression. Thus truth supersedes time past and time future. Truth is, therefore, absolute. Acts 16:30-32 records a conversation between Paul and the keeper of the prison where he was being held: The keeper of the prison asked Sirs, what must I do to be saved? To which Paul answered Believe on the Lord Yahshua Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord. What word of the Lord did Paul have? They had the Tanach, what Christians call the Old Testament. Since 1948 we have been in the last days, the end of the church age. There is a time of change coming soon. Just as there was a change when the language was confused at Babel, and just as there was a change after Yahshua remained faithful unto death, so will there be a change when gentile believers are resurrected from off the earth. But truth will not change, nor will the outcome for those who do not believe. That we can believe truth attests to the fact that the spirit of man is not a product of the finite, but of the infinite. It is only the corporeal that is constrained within the envelope of this time/space/matter dimension. Unfortunately, our spirit is confined within the body. But in the course of time this temporary container will be overcome by the process of age and decay and our spirit will be released from its prison.

20

Those who have embraced and inhabited the truth will find inclusion into that which they have chosen. Those who have defined themselves in this life as against the truth by their embrace of the lie will find no place there. That the spirit survives the death of the body is the focus of Rev 20:13 the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. It is, therefore, not so much our focus that determines our reality, as it is our belief that determines our destiny. The absolute of truth is inescapable but the consequence of destiny is not. Understanding fact is a function of the mind. Believing truth is a function of the spirit. There can be only one truth. All else is falsehood and error. Embracing truth has an eternal benefit, rejecting truth has an eternal consequence.

The Lie of Religion


The Fourth and final Wall of Hell
Do you remember Luke 9:54-56 when James and John said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them? Yahweh is the author of life who holds out the promise of abundant life. In this section, I intend to give you an insight that will carry you into the subject of the following chapter by revealing to you the false religion based upon the lie. Rev 6:8 reveals the essence of the false religion that rises to great prominence upon the earth. It is first necessary to resolve a mistranslation in this passage. And I looked, and behold a pale [green] 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. The mistranslation involves the color of the horse. We get our word chlorophyll from the stem of the Greek word translated pale in this verse. Everywhere else in the entire Bible where this word is used, it is translated green (or a green plant). The only place where it is rendered pale is in this verse. (Because this is a Greek word, the reference to the entire Bible is meant as a reference to both the New Testament and the Septuagint) William Tyndale, the first man to translate the most reliable body of Greek manuscripts into English, actually translated this word green! It was the King James commission who changed this word to pale. Why would they do that? I suspect they changed what they considered plain, repetitive or uninteresting language to make it sound more erudite, poetic or colorful. Unfortunately, changing units of code in an encryption such as the symbolic imagery in a passage of prophecy has hidden its meaning for millions who never studied the original language. Why is the color of the horse so important? For over 1200 years, the color green has been associated with Islam, for centuries it has been the color of their banner carried into battle. Christopher Beam writing for slate.com tells us that green was: Mohammed's favorite color. The Islamic prophet is said to have worn a green cloak and turban, and his writings are full of references to the color. A passage from the Quran describes paradise as a place where people will wear green 22

garments of fine silk. One hadith, or teaching, says, "When Allah's Apostle died, he was covered with a Hibra Burd," which is a green square garment. As a result, you'll see green used to color the binding of Qurans, the domes of mosques, and, yes, campaign materials. Green has other properties, too, that make it a natural fit for Islam and the Middle East. It's a symbol of nature and lifeespecially potent in the dry desert. Mohammed invoked this connection when he wrote about a folkloric figure called al-Khidr, or "the Green One," who symbolizes immortality. . . Green comes up a lot in Islamic history. It was the color of the flag of the Fatimid Caliphate, the last of the four Arab caliphates. During the crusades, Islamic soldiers wore green to identify themselves. . . Some say the banner under which Mohammed fought in the war on Mecca was green with golden trimming. . . For centuries in Persia, only descendants of Mohammed, known as the Sayyids, were allowed to wear green turbansanyone else would be punished for it . . . More recently, the color has become associated with Hamas, which sports a bright green flag. In al-Jahiz, Tarbi, p.137 Mohammed declared, "The sight of green is agreeable to the eyes as the sight of a beautiful woman" In Islamic cosmology, Mount Kaf encircling the terrestrial world, is made of green, whose colour is reflected by the celestial vault. According to Encyclopaedia of World Art (Rome, 1959, 4:723), "Green was probably the colour of the Prophet himself and of his descendants through his daughter Fatima. This colour is mentioned in the Koran and was considered the restorative and healthful colour of paradise itself." Abu Rimthah Rifa'ah Taimi relates: "I saw the Prophet wearing two green garments." (Abu Daud, 1520:1135). Ibn Yala narrates, "I saw the Prophet circumambulating round the Kaba, wearing a green sheet, passing under his armpit" (Tabaqat, 2:536). I understand Mohammed wore a green brocade robe into battle. Today Mohammeds green turban is in a museum at the Badshahi Mosque in Pakistan. For centuries Islam has been known as The Green Menace. In contrast with Judaism and Christianity, Muslims are commanded to kill those who do not submit to their Allah. As we have seen for years, adherents of Islam undertake terrorist endeavors that kill without respect for wealth, gender, status or age. The text, therefore, says that his name that sat on this green horse is Death, and Hell followed with him. In the first four seals of Revelation, the horse and the rider represent two separate things. In the relationship of horse and rider, the horse is the vehicle. A vehicle is a device used to arrive at an intended destination. The horses in these passages represent ideologies comprising the strong delusion based on The Lie and the riders represent those in the saddle who use each ideology as their vehicle to achieve an end. The end goal of the deceiver is to leverage these four horses and horsemen to attain world domination. The remaining text of each verse reveals in some way the nature of the period under discussion. With respect to the name of this final horseman, the Bible gives us an interesting insight; 1 Cor 15:26 tells us The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. I find it 23

particularly poignant that this is the name ascribed to the rider of the fourth and final horse of the Apocalypse inasmuch as his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.) so in effect, it is the final of the four enemies which will be destroyed at the return of the risen Lord at the second coming. This, of course, is a shadow of things to come, and typifies the end of the final age appointed to this earth, the Kingdom Age, the end of the world, when the final fulfillment of this verse takes place and death itself is destroyed. Another interesting insight into this is that of Isa 28:18: And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; It seems Yahweh has no respect for all the deals the Israeli leadership has cut with the rider of the Green horse whose name is death and is followed by hell. It is interesting to scrutinize the cryptic phrase that follows Rev. 6:8: 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. Islam now claims 25% of the worlds population as its adherents, so the prophecy is fulfilled that they are given power over the fourth part of the earth. The following assertion in the narrative to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth begins with an infinitive, so it is unclear whether they will actually put to death 25% of the earths population, or that they simply have power over 25% of the earths inhabitants, and this practice of killing is the standard operating procedure of those adherents. It would be tragic indeed if 25% of the earths population were murdered by the activity of this final rider. It would, however, enjoy the irony of poetic justice upon the preceding horseman whose wealth and power derives from an abundance of population producing and consuming goods and services in peace as well as in manufactured wars. But I am getting ahead of myself. Also fascinating at this juncture in history is the means of killing utilized by this entity identified as; sword, hunger, death, and the beasts of the earth. These deserve further scrutiny: Sword: Both representative of warfare, and particularly prominent in the Koran as the instrument used to kill the infidel. Hunger: I dont think this can be misunderstood. Starvation is a means utilized to oppress non-Muslims over whom Sharia law has the influence to afflict economic hardship. It is, therefore, certainly being fulfilled in Islamic countries. Because areas under the influence of Islam lack secure property rights, these regions generally undergo a process of desertification whereby lands are exploited for what they produce on their own, but are seldom improved for fear they will be taken for the cause of Allah (google Darfur). In Islamic countries, the generalization that the rich are very rich, but the poor are among the poorest the world has ever seen is all too often correct. Death: Prior to recent history, the meaning of this idiom was a topic for debate; after all, how do you kill someone with death? With the advent of the suicide bomber, not only are we certain about its meaning, but are also certain that this fourth seal has already been loosed. Additionally, I wouldnt limit the fulfillment only to those deceived into strapping a bomb onto their bodies, using their own death to kill others, but also to those who would hijack airplanes to steer into buildings. The beasts of the earth: In years gone by I often accepted this to mean the voracious beasts of the earth; the lions and tigers and bears. A few bible translations actually

24

insert the words wild beasts, though unsavory, unclean or just plain nasty might be equally good translations. In view of the issues and controversies of these last days, however, I think it is safe to embrace the opposite end of the size spectrum with respect to the beasts of the earth. Could the words of the apostle John be taken as meaning the microscopic beasts of the earth? It appears to be very likely in light of current biologic weapons technology, its economic cost of production, the ease with which they are manufactured & transported, and their exponential dispersion due to their contagious nature.

and Hell followed with him


The Allah deception involves a substitution. The English word God is used to translate the Arabic word Allah, but Yahweh of Judaism and Christianity is not Allah. The substitution of a false prophet and a false god as a replacement for the truth of the living and true God Yahweh is the most deceptive shell game ever played. The Allah of Islam is the antithesis of the Almighty. He does not command his adherents to love, rather, he commands them to slay the infidel. He does not command them to turn the other cheek, rather he commands them to be at war with non-Muslims until the day of judgment. He does not command them to be at peace with all men, rather he commands to set ambush. He doesnt command them to Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness, rather he commands, not to take the Jew or the Christian as your friend. In a previous section we saw how the government of Satans lie of Marxism is the polar opposite of Yahwehs righteous law. So in the Allah of Islam we see the polar opposite of the nature and character of Yahweh. Yahweh is the creator of life, but the name of the rider of the green horse is Death. Yahweh so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son so that men might lay hold upon eternal life, but to embrace Islam is to follow a leader named Death to a destination called hell, the exact opposite of the purpose of the living and true God. Another characteristic of Islam that sets it apart from every other religion is that it is a world domination ideology. It is very clear to me that Revelation 6:8 describes Islam as it exists in our day and time now at the end of the age. If the fourth horseman of the Apocalypse does indeed intend to describe Islam as it exists in our day and time, perhaps the previous three horses and horsemen describe other world-domination ideologies as well. Lets compare the prophetic symbolism of the words Yahshua dictated to John in Revelation 6 with current events that have already transpired at the end of this age and see what world-domination ideologies fit their description:

25

CHAPTER 2

HELLS FORTRESS World Domination Ideologies


The Third Horseman of the Apocalypse
The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are numbered; first seal, second seal etc. Their fulfillment, therefore, occurs in chronological progression. Each uses symbolism to depict the nature and character of the time period being examined. Being prophetic, these four horsemen have been misunderstood by even well meaning Christians as nothing more than war, famine, pestilence and death. This, however, is nothing more than a trite dismissal of a prophecy that is so terse, so cryptic, that proper interpretation was nothing less than impossible until it had come to pass. Lets work backward from the final horseman examined in Chapter 1 to see how closely the preceding three horsemen have characterized what we find already written in our history books. Rev 6:5-7 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 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. Satan stated an ambition in Isaiah 14:13-14. In this passage he makes four boasts which assert his desire to have dominion, he then summarizes his announcement by saying I will be like the most high. Here it is for your review: I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yahweh: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isaiah 14:13-14) It must be remembered that the pattern of Yahwehs throne is comprised of four cherubim with Yahweh in the center. In Rev 21:23 we see the glory of Yahweh as the light of the New Jerusalem; light often represents truth in symbolism. We have already established that Satan is a liar and the father of lies. Therefore, since Satans ambition is to be like the most High (who has a throne, a King and a kingdom based upon the truth), isnt it logical that the fulfillment of Satans boast would be to establish his kingdom based upon the lie? After all, the throne based upon the truth is already taken!

26

Weve already examined the foundational lie, the denial of the very existence of Yahweh. These four deceptions flow from this foundation and share the quality of being world domination ideologies. These are the deceptions of darkness that blind those who would enter through the Gates of Hell. As the fourth (green) horse represents Islam, the third (black) horse is the economic world domination ideology of central banking. In our examination of central banking, you will see that it is essentially nothing more or less than a deception involving the issuance of counterfeit money. Not all paper money is counterfeit. When you write a check, the idea of a check is that it can be taken to your bank and redeemed for money. The idea of paper money is the same. A paper dollar bill is supposed to represent money that is kept safe at another location; essentially genuine paper money is a warehouse receipt. Paper money traditionally has a redemption clause on its face. In 1933, however, House Joint Resolution 192 was passed allowing the removal of the redemption clause and the issuance of federal reserve notes. While it is true they are simply ink on paper representing nothing of value in any vault or warehouse, (and have no intrinsic value whatsoever themselves), its even worse than that. These federal reserve notes are created in response to a promise to pay. Say the federal government needs money. They issue a bond, the Federal Reserve enters the amount authorized by the bond in its assets column and the treasury then issues money. But wait! We havent yet discussed fractional reserve banking! Fractional reserve banking is a practice whereby only a fraction of the banking institutions assets are actually on hand to satisfy whatever demand is made on the banks reserves. The amount of money issued in response to a government bond (promise to pay at some future date) can legally be many times over the amount of the bond. The bog becomes even deeper when you consider that the money issued in excess of the bond is then loaned to others, including the private sector economy. When a signature is obtained on a loan application, that signature constitutes another promise to pay, and as you have probably guessed, that too is entered into the assets column at the bank, and again generates many times over the amount of the promise to pay under the fractional reserve banking practice! Money is created in response to your promise to pay being entered into the banks assets column, then they loan the asset your signature created back to you and extract usury from you for the privilege of borrowing it! An honest man or woman may ask How can a bank issue loans in excess of assets on hand? Dont forget that the assets were discussing are notes of debt, not something of intrinsic value like silver or gold. Theres no such thing as a run on a bank whose assets consist solely of debt! The Constitution of the United States of America establishes silver and gold as money. 31 U.S.C. 5112(e) sets forth the value of one dollar as one ounce of silver8. The definition of counterfeit money, therefore, involves the issue of redemption. Unless a dollar bill can be redeemed for one ounce of silver, it is counterfeit. So what is a dollar worth? Prior to 1933, the redemption clause clearly set forth their value. They were silver certificates and it said so right on their face. A silver certificate dollar was worth one ounce of silver. So what is a federal reserve note worth? It represents debt; a note is a promise to pay. When youre holding a federal reserve note, youre holding a note promising to pay. But what is it promising to pay?

27

In 1968, the U.S. Senate voted to remove the gold backing from federal reserve notes. On August 15, 1971 President Richard M. Nixon announced that the U.S. Treasury would no longer redeem dollars in gold for any foreign treasury or central bank. This action took the nation off the gold standard; no longer could dollars be redeemed for the legal amount of one ounce of silver as required by law. So if they arent redeemable in silver or gold, what are they worth? The answer is; what you see is what you get . . . they are only worth what you think theyre worth. Its a pyramid scheme, a confidence scam. The more people who figure it out, the less effective the scam will be. If youre still lucky enough to get someone to exchange them for goods or services, consider yourself fortunate. Its similar to the game musical chairs. When the music stops, those left with piles of federal reserve notes will have no place to sit, nowhere to spend the worthless paper. Once again we see the master/slave relationship being advanced by those who would rule over men. By law the federal reserve note is for all debts public and private. The master dictates the slave must use his counterfeit money. Economic deception on a global scale designed to dominate through the threat of economic devastation those that dont bow to the will of the enemy of our souls. So much for all men are created equal and authority being established by the consent of the governed. In 1 Tim 6:10, the Bible warns, the love of money is the root of all evil. Further, that those who coveted after money have erred from the faith! Government sanctioned Counterfeiting (aka fiat money) isnt peculiar to our generation: Kublai Khan, the 13th century Mongol emperor who ruled China decreed that those who refused to accept the paper money he issued would be executed. Paper money had been more or less abandoned in China by the 15th century9. In 1294, paper money was forcibly introduced in Persia, but led to economic disaster. In 1716 John Law persuaded the Duke of Orleans (the French regent for the young Louis XV) to allow him to issue paper currency through his newly formed "Banque Royale". At first it did well, but like all confidence scams, the bank and the scheme collapsed. There wasnt enough gold and silver in France to back up all the paper money issued9! When Governments engage in counterfeiting, it is usually accompanied by threat of coercion. Use this money or else! It must be tempting for Private banks to cook their books, but what we see practiced by banks today goes far beyond mere double-entry bookkeeping. Fractional reserve banking, though made legal by a corrupt body politic, is still a violation of the sound economic principles found in Gods Word. What is reflected in Revelation 6:5, however, isnt mere dishonesty; it is Satanic in origin and an ambition to economically dominate the entire world. Men who propel governments into war solely to convert war into perpetual debt and debt into perpetual war cannot possibly believe their accomplishments benefit mankind. The only possible motivation for men such as these is to consolidate global economic domination under the Prince of this World. It is this writers opinion that the great depression was a manipulation on the part of the enemy of our souls using these unscrupulous bankers to weaken free countries as a prelude to their financing of rising militaristic regimes of the period, including Imperial Japan and Adolf Hitlers Third Reich.

A stable currency makes the market cycle an impossibility. Interest rates result solely from market forces when a currency doesnt fluctuate in value. It is the rise and fall of interest rates that result in stock and bond booms and busts. This cannot be explained in any way other than an intentional manipulation of the market designed to create losers every time the market swings. Its nothing short of insider trading, illegal for the rest of us, but perpetrated on the grandest scale for the benefit of those who control it. The black color of the horse in Revelation 6:5 can be taken as the black or secret nature of the financial organizations perpetrating this fraud, as the epitome of evil (the love of money), as a pun referring to the black side of the financial ledger, or as the oil industry, which has become the Achilles heel of our western economy. Youll notice in the text that follows, theres an admonition not to hurt the oil and the wine. Is this a reference to the prohibition of alcoholic beverages, which was the mechanism used to establish many of the numerous alphabet soup police agencies we have today? Whether the color black represents secrecy, the black side of the financial ledger or oil is a peripheral issue, the fact that world economies are manipulated at both the investment as well as the money supply side, makes the prediction of this prophecy particularly poignant. The word balances in this passage is a very interesting Koin Greek word. It literally means coupling. The two sides of a balance are coupled in much the same way as two oxen are coupled by a beam on a pivot. Everywhere else in the New Testament this word is translated yoke. Evidently, at the time of the writing of the New Testament, the same Greek word translated yoke could also be translated balance if the context required it. You may disregard the words a pair of in the King James, as the word is singular. Because commodities and financial transactions are in view, the translators of all versions of the Bible opted for the latter, which, of course, is entirely reasonable. Consider for a moment the meaning of the alternative rendering: the word yoke carries with it the implication that those who manipulate and control our economy are driving us like a farmer drives his oxen to plow his field so that he may reap a harvest. I believe that God, who knows the end from the beginning and intercedes in the affairs of men to suit his own purposes, may be responsible for the equivocal nature of this word just so it could mean both for this single verse! Though this ideology doesnt directly involve military conquest to expand its influence, it needs only to finance the rise to power of a tyrant like Hitler, Tojo or Sadaam and threatened nations line up like ducklings for the loans needed to acquire military armament sufficient to meet the threat. This is why no coercion is necessary, its a game played by banksters: manipulating world events, knowing men will die in the theatre of war for no better reason than to increase the filthy lucre flowing into their pockets. Under the third horse the population of the earth has increased exponentially. Obviously more people means more consumers, more workers, more soldiers on the battlefields, more slaves under the yoke of this economic taskmaster. We in America so cherish our democracy in spite of the fact that it was founded as a republic and structured as a confederacy, both of which have become financially

29

subservient to the Federal Reserve Board which is not a federal agency, has no reserves, and is certainly not governed by any elected representatives. As an ideology this economic empire is as empty and fruitless as any departure from Gods order and can only meet its end, as all deviations from Gods perfect order eventually must. Because these men disobey the requisites laid down in Yahwehs Word, true happiness and fulfillment will always elude them: 1 Tim 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

The Second Horseman of the Apocalypse


3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 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. Rev 6:2-3 Remember again, that each horse is an ideology based on the lie and serves as a vehicle to achieve world domination. Here the ideology is socialism, or (red) communism, and though the underlying premise it is based upon is atheistic Darwinism, its guiding philosophy is domination through the elimination of the injustices that arise from capitalistic influences. In each country where a communist revolution takes place, multitudes are murdered. The targets for murder are generally the educated, the wealthy and the religious. The educated are not easily deceived by propaganda; therefore they are targeted for elimination. The wealthy have the ability to compete for influence with their wealth, so they also find themselves the target of murder. The religious are committed to a cause other than the cause of communism; so, being counter-productive to the interests of the state they too are slated for death. All this under the guise of eliminating the counterrevolutionaries from among the proletariat. If it werent so tragic, it would be comic. The tragedy, of course, is that these, who reject the love of Christ and his invitation to be born from above into an eternal heritage, perpetrate widespread destruction, desolation and death. It causes me great curiosity why these, who have no moral compass, wish to institute a government run health care system. Evidently, they wish to be the ones who decide who lives and who dies, who gets life-saving medical treatment, and who does not. How will they decide which list YOU get on? Are you a counterrevolutionary? Remember: the horse is the vehicle, the ideology. The rider on the other hand, refers to those in the saddle, those who think theyre more highly evolved, more politically ruthless, more financially savvy or more adept at deceiving those intimidated by the pretention of silly religious hats and garb & rites and rituals. The rider is not necessarily a true believer in the ideology, and in the case of all these deceptions, the ruling elitists simply use the ideology to take power and expand their base of dominance. In the case of Red Communism, the Marxist ideology isnt solely spread through revolution. Wickipedia defines The Fabian Society as a British socialist movement, whose purpose is to advance the principles of Social democracy via gradualist and

31

reformist, rather than revolutionary means. This communist organization actively infiltrates academia and the media as well as the apparatus of governments for the purpose of advancing their agenda through the polarization of popular opinion on issues. The Cloward-Pivin Strategy is another means being utilized by those who would subvert a free people. : First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. Cloward-Piven's early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Allinsky as their inspiration.10 Our Constitutional Republic in America has been hijacked by those deceived by the strong delusion of Marxism. Knowing over 90% of Americans believe in God, the lamestream media has been hijacked in the effort to cover up the intentional subversion of liberty and freedom in this nation that was once the beacon of hope to the rest of the world. Propaganda didnt end with the axis powers of WW2; its only the word that has fallen out of widespread usage. Orwellian double-speak has become the order of the day as Communists hide behind softer, more acceptable words, like social democracy, liberal and progressive as they sew discord among free people. In effect, the prophecy of John has been fulfilled by communism in that they have taken peace from the earth through this divide and conquer tactic of fomenting unrest in order to create a groundswell of support for the lie. Yahshua warned his disciples about this period. In Matt 24:24 Yahshua warned 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. Yahshua then summed up in verse 28 by saying For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles [vultures] be gathered together. Why did I replace the word eagles with the word vultures? Because the word can be translated either way, and in this passage the word is referring back to the false Christs and false prophets of verse 24. The word translated carcase then, refers to the feeble and sickly in the body of Christ who succumb to the lie. If you are a diligent student of Gods word, you will find that every time the Greek word ptoma (translated carcase here) is used in the Bible, it refers to one slain in a contest to the death. We are involved in a life and death struggle for the hearts and minds of men. The enemy of our souls has disarmed the corporate churches and anesthetized those in attendance. It is the task of you and I to come out of her that you be not partakers of her sins . . . and to sound the alarm that we might awaken the Sunday-morning Christians! It is a fact that all those who reject the truth of Yahweh and embrace the lie, who worship and serve the creature more than the Creator, will ultimately be relegated to the dustbin of history in the day when the meek inherit the earth. Nobody is on the fence.

The First Horseman of the Apocalypse


Rev 6:1-4 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. 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. The white horse represents far more than simply the ideology of white supremacy as later intellectually justified by the theory of evolution promoted by Charles Lyel as well as Erasmus and Charles Darwin and others. It is the cornerstone and rational for European imperialism and colonization, but most specifically the Dated to between 1400 and 600 BCT, the 'Uffington British Empire. White Horse' appears on a hilltop a mile and a half A crown was given to him; even south of the village of Uffington, England. today, a reference to the Crown is generally accepted as a reference to the Crown of England. The bow in the hand of the rider is obviously a weapon of war, but it wasnt solely the Anglo-Saxons that went forth militarily conquering and to conquer. Many thousands suffered and died under the quest of not only the British, but the other white nations of Europe as well, to conquer and colonization the less evolved peoples of the earth. Darwinian ethnocentrism is the summation of the lie that provided the rationale for the white Europeans who went forth conquering to establish the empires of Britain, Spain, France, Portugal, Denmark, Germany et al. Certainly financial gain was one motivation; the love of money is the root of all evil, but after severing the bond with the Romish church in the early 16th century, Britain needed to expend its sphere of influence in order to remain competitive with the old Roman order. The world, both new and old, felt the jack-boot of the British. The British Empire spread in all directions, usurping dominion on every continent, establishing British colonies to reap raw materials for industrialized Britain. The Roman church had always held firm against evolution theory, but the Church of England did not. In spite of numerous revivals both in England and Europe, it was ultimately the lie of evolution theory that reduced the temperature of the body of Christ in Britain and Europe to room temperature. Both the size and influence of the Empire grew, and with them the British brought their science to the heathen horde. The lie that rocks liquefied into soup and simply sprang to life millions of years ago, that the Bible teaching about creation is

33

nothing more than a quaint superstition of a bygone era and that men are not accountable to a sovereign God. Quite possibly the most contemptible practical joke of all time, the theory of evolution, has infected all the world as a result of this period of European expansion.

Darwin on the ten-pound note indicates the significance of his influence on Britain.

In their arrogance following World War I, the British and the newly formed League of Nations re-apportioned many nations without regard to ethnic influences. I believe these newly drawn borders were an attempt to make these nations vulnerable and more easily manipulated. This classic divide and conquer tactic is straight from Satans handbook. The blowback and backlash from this shortsightedness created instability in the world that is still felt today. This combined with the Versailles treaty created fertile ground for the circumstances leading to World War II. The rider of the White Horse had gone forth conquering and to conquer, and by the time the smoke settled, England had conquered peoples all over the earth, to the extent they could boast that the sun never set on the British Empire. The British Empire wasnt without its obstacles, however. The American colonies posed a significant roadblock to British worldwide hegemony when a Christian General named George Washington quite miraculously halted their expansion in the western hemisphere. The passage of time and the expense of two world wars have compromised both the momentum and the will of the British, ending the geographic expansion of their domain, although the intellectual and political influence of this rider continues to the present day. It is the purest irony indeed that the notion of white supremacy, the intellectual rationale for British colonization of inferior races, is precisely the guiding principle of the NAZI movement, which came dangerously close to strangling the life from England. It is axiomatic that ones sins will be ones undoing, the confiscation of land by squabbling European nations being the impetus for the first world war, and the second rising from the ashes of resentment from the first. While were on the topic, lets examine the NAZI movement in greater detail.

34

The Throne of Satan


In counterfeit parallel to the pattern of Yahwehs throne in heaven, Satans throne arises in the midst of these four world-dominion ideological movements. Hitlers fascism eerily reflects the most poignant characteristics of all of the four ideologies. Its cornerstone was white supremacy (specifically Aryan), it was socialist, it exerted state-control over the economy, and both axis powers of Germany and Japan employed death (suicide strategy) as a tactic. The Kamikaze pilots of Japan are well known, but few have heard of Rammkommando Elbe, the Nazi units also known as the Luftwaffe Storm Group. It was stipulated to these that every fighter pilot who lands an undamaged machine without scoring a kill will be court marshaled. Their rules of engagement included instructions to ram the bomber if weapons failed or the gunfire was ineffective. Hitler often issued the order to fight to the last man in defense of the fatherland, though this order was more often than not disobeyed as his generals surrendered en masse. Though the Third Reich was not Islamic, it is well documented that Hitler was an occultist and virulently anti-Semitic. Numerous predominantly Islamic nations aligned themselves with Hitler and his genocide against the Jewish people. Concentration camps in Arab North Africa reaped a grim harvest parallel to the better-known camps in Europe. Keep in mind that the Allah of Islam is al-illah, the moon god of the ancient Sabeans, the god of the night, the god of darkness. Even today Islam is represented by the symbol of the crescent moon, the phase that reflects the least light of the sun. Fascinating indeed is that the symbol of the NAZI movement is a perversion of the cross. And lets not forget the traditional symbol of Japan is the dragon, the deceiver of Eve and prime mover of the fall of man. (The Japanese home islands form an image of a dragon.) Numerous nations had entered into non-aggression pacts with Hitler, including Neville Chamberlain of England and Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union, but Hitler violated them all. Hitler sought world domination, beginning with white Europe and Britain, and then the communist regime of the U.S.S.R. in operation Barbarossa. If he hadnt been stopped he would have set his sights on the U.S. and the predominantly Muslim Middle East as well. As an aside, there are those who insist on a strict dichotomy between communism and fascism, citing that communism is left wing and fascism is right wing. This is a fallacy arising from left-wing intellectualism. The truth is that Thomas Jefferson is credited with coining the political spectrum. Jefferson evaluated governments based on a scale of liberty vs. totalitarianism. On the right end of the spectrum would be total lack of government, total liberty. [I dont use the term anarchy to define the absence of

35

government because only a society comprised of people whose behavior is governed by an inner conviction of Judeo-Christian morality can enjoy true liberty without laws or government.] On the left end of the spectrum is totalitarianism; defined as government intrusion into every aspect of the lives and livelihoods of the citizenry. By Jeffersons paradigm, both communism and fascism would be extreme left-wing forms of governance. Todays left-leaning academics would have us accept fascism as being rightwing, but nothing is further from the truth. Fascism and socialism are simply different forms of left-wing totalitarianism. The truth these intellectuals would love to hide from you is the obvious fact that the government of a free people has no choice but to move leftward as the populace becomes less and less moral, requiring more and more laws to restrain the lawless behavior of those with no regard for the rights of others. Separation of Church and State is the clarion call of the left You cant legislate morality is their credo as our republic slowly sinks into the mire of totalitarianism. If not for Christian America, a nation that embraces liberty, entering the war, would all the other allies combined have brought the ambitions of the Third Reich to an end? If they had, Soviet style communism would have dominated all of Europe. American involvement tested and proved Yahshuas promise that the Gates of Hell shall not prevail against His Church. Because I am not a prophet, I dont know what the future holds. I do, however, know the one who holds the future, and that His promises will come to pass. Promises such as 2 Thess 2:6-12: And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Yahweh shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe [the] lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess 2:6-12 This passage describes the outcome of the end of this age. Consider the following quote and see if you agree that the time period described in scripture has come to pass: "The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power--Political, Monetary, Intellectual, and Ecclesiastical." - U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, his book No Apologies, 1964 Do you still wonder who the players are and when will it come to pass? What a privilege to have Yahwehs Word so accessible now at the end of this age when we need it the most. 36

CHAPTER 3

SHALL NOT PREVAIL The Mystery of the Last Days


What Yahweh Hath Wrought
We must not forget that Yahweh is in control. Though the darkness of Satans counterfeit kingdom rises around us, these gates of hell shall not prevail against the true ekklesia over which the Christ, the Son of the Living God is the head. In this chapter I wish to share with you many mysteries of Yahwehs Word. In order to lay these out before you, I need first to lead you into an understanding of 1 Cor 2:9. Im sure youve heard verse 9 of this passage quoted many times. More often than not, it is quoted out of context, and taken to mean the exact opposite of what it intends to establish. Here is verse 9: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which Yahweh hath prepared for them that love him. Standing alone, anyone would jump to the wholesale conclusion that nobody, including Christians, can know what Yahweh hath prepared for those them that love him. Now lets look at the remainder of the passage: 10 But Yahweh hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of Yahweh. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of Yahweh knoweth no man, but the Spirit of Yahweh. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of Yahweh; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of Yahweh. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of Yahweh: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Do you have the Spirit of Yahweh? If you dont, then youre not a Christian! Romans 8:9 tells us if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. If you believe that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh, then flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven just like Yahshua told Peter. If you do, lets explore together some of the works of Yahweh through this age-end prophesy in Revelation 6. If you dont, go immediately before the throne of Yahweh in prayer, confess and turn from your sin, lay hold on the forgiveness provided by the sacrifice of Yahshua HMashiyach and ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Yahshua, The King Of The Jews Declared


Yahweh often uses the works of His enemies to accomplish His purposes. Consider Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea, while sitting upon the official Roman seat of judgment, made the official proclamation THIS IS YAHSHUA THE KING OF THE JEWS. This written declaration was publicly posted in the three predominant languages

37

of the region after the evidence was examined at an official Roman trial where Yahshua was found guilty of the charge! Why is this significant? Adam was given dominion over this earth. When Adam sinned against Yahweh, he was still in dominion over this world. BUT as Paul tells us in Rom 6:16 to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? So Adam, having obeyed the voice of his wife who was deceived by Satan, became the servant of sin, the servant of the deceiver. Yahwehs order was turned upon its head. The four world-ruling empires that arose as the prophet Daniel prophesied are an extension of that servitude. These four empires, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome, are not an extension of Yahwehs order, but that of Satan. Yahweh had given the land of promise to the descendants of Israel, yet at the end of that age, Rome had usurped dominion over that heritage. Pilates written declaration of Yahshuas capitol offense constitutes an official proclamation of Rome establishing Yahshua as King of the Jews! The fallen House of Adam, having God-given dominion over the earth (though under the auspices of Satan, the de-facto master over Adams descendants) was masterfully maneuvered into a move by the Lord of Hosts to declare Yahshua, the Son of Yahweh, The King of the Jews. But if you think thats something, Pilates soldiers put a robe of royal purple upon him, and his soldiers crowned him and bowed the knee before him! Not only did they find him guilty of BEING the King of the Jews at an official and binding Roman trial, but they also proclaimed it publicly in writing and performed the rites normally associated with a coronation!

Yahshua, The King Of The Jews Reigns


In Rev 5:5 we read, The Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. What do the seals unleash upon the world? Lets consider Daniels prophecy again. Daniel foretold four world-ruling empires that would dominate Israel until the beginning of the church age. Though these four empires acted in direct opposition to Yahwehs command, they accomplished his purposes nonetheless. In the book of Revelation, we have another prophecy concerning the last days of another age. We are, at the time of this writing, nearing the end of the age appointed to the ekklesia, the church of Yahshua HMashiyach (the Messiah). Instead of four world-ruling empires, we have Yahshua HMashiyach, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, having been obedient unto death, having prevailed, found worthy to break the seals which unleash the four world-ruling ideologies outlined in Revelation 6 upon the earth. Yahshua came to seek and save that which was lost, but the enemy of our souls seeks to subjugate men using the strong delusion to deceive them, and substitute the lie to seduce men to reject the truth. Just as the four empires of Daniels prophecy sought dominion over the land appointed to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the patriarchs of the nation Israel, Satans ambition at the end of this age is to use these four ideologies to usurp dominion over the hearts and minds of men that Christ died to redeem.

38

Wasnt Satans boast that he would sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north? What were the words of Christ in Matt 24:24? That if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Just as the prophecy of Daniel took almost 500 years to come to fruition, so the four world-dominion ideologies unleashed by the first of the four seals in the book of Revelation have taken roughly the same time period. The British Empire is considered to have begun around 1485, although the split with Roman Catholicism didnt occur until 1534 Under Henry VIII, under whose leadership money and land, formerly belonging to the Roman church, was nationalized. Bibles, formerly prohibited by the Romish church from being published in the vernacular of the people, began to enjoy wide distribution in English. From the time of the British Empire, we have seen the events depicted in Revelations seals play out. But, just as Yahweh used Satans works to accomplish His purposes at the end of the age appointed to Israel, so Yahweh has used Satans ambition at the end of this age to accomplish His purposes now in our time. As the expression goes; they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. Yahwehs Purpose For The White Horse As discussed earlier, the break from the Roman church removed the prohibitions against the theory-tale of evolution as an alternative explanation for the origin and development of the material universe and all living things. Almost immediately following Britains establishment of the Church of England in competition with Roman Catholicism, evolution theory increased in influence, as did the domain of Britain. As the British Empire became more vast and powerful, so did the theory. The Ottoman Empire was broken in World War 1 and the United Kingdom was granted control of Palestine by the Versailles Peace Conference. Also established was the League of Nations, which in June of 1922 passed the Palestine Mandate. The Palestine Mandate outlined Britain's responsibilities and powers of administration in "securing the establishment of the Jewish national home". In spite of the fact that the area originally granted for the Jewish homeland was greatly reduced, it was this first of Satans four horseman that ultimately accomplished Yahwehs purposes with respect to the establishment of the chosen people back in the land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yahwehs Purpose For The Red Horse The Czars of Russia dealt harshly with Jews, but with the rise of red communism and Joseph Stalin came both persecution and murder of many categories and ethnicities of peoples, but the Jews had a place to go. Not all Jews went to Israel, maybe not even the majority. Just as Yahweh showed Gideon how to reduce the number of people to go up against the Midianites from 32,000 all the way down to 300, so Yahweh used the events initiated by the rider of the Red Horse to arrange for those Yahweh intended to fulfill Ezekiel 37 to compel them back to the land of promise. Ezek 37:21-22 Thus saith the Lord YAHWEH; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

39

22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; Yahwehs Purpose For The Black Horse Just as Yahweh used those who usurped land to provide His people a land, and as he used those who pervert nations to bring the Jewish nation forth, Yahweh has used those who economically devastated peoples and nations to enrich His chosen people. Consider the following quote by Willy Stern in The Weekly Standard12: Take the economy. In the fourth quarter last year, when the global economy went all to hell, Israel's annual, quarter-over-quarter rate of GDP was only off 0.5 percent, the best figure in the industrialized world. (The United States was off 6.3 percent and Japan 12.1 percent.) "Think about the resistance of our economy in recent times," suggests Zvi Eckstein, deputy governor of the Bank of Israel. "Our prime minister [has a stroke]. The war in Gaza. The war in Lebanon. The government gets replaced. But we've maintained a stable macroeconomic structure and a strong high-tech sector." What's the secret? Ayelet Nir, chief economist at IBI, an Israeli investment firm, lists six major reasons Israel's economy has done well of late: A very conservative banking system--without most of the complex and problematic financial instruments found in the United States. No mortgage crisis in a country where putting 50 percent down isn't unusual, and banks often ask for guarantors. A current account surplus since 2003. Negligible inflation. Prudent governmental fiscal policy. Healthy integration into the world economy. Last year, 483 Israeli high-tech companies raised a whopping $2.08 billion from local and foreign venture capital investors. (Only U.S. companies raised more.) All the major tech players--Google, Microsoft, IBM--have large research centers in Israel. They go where the talent is.12 The counterfeit money economies of the world dont simply print money to spend it; this funny-money is loaned to people and governments. Almost every country in the world is in debt up to their eyeballs with one notable exception; Israel. Israel has consistently paid back the loans. We know from Prov 22:7 that The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. The debt nations, therefore, are compelled to serve the interests and purposes of the lender. Perhaps this is the explanation for Zech 14:1-2, which reads: Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; Whether they like it or not, they are compelled to dance to the pipers tune. So what results from that battle? The next verse tells us how Yahweh responds: Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. Zech 14:3 Zech 14:16 tells us how things will be from that point on: And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And whom did Rome find guilty of being The King of the Jews? Thats right, the same one who is The LORD Of Hosts.

40

I find it strangely ironic that just as Yahshua the Son of Yahweh was put to death by Rome and was resurrected, so also the nation Israel was put to death by Rome in 70AD, but now has been resurrected as the Kingdom Age approaches. A resurrected nation to be ruled by a resurrected King. Yahwehs Purpose For The Green Horse That brings us to those who would pervert the worship due to the living and true God. Tasked by the League of Nations to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine, the British, the empire that conquered and subjugated nations, established the Jewish homeland. Ironic, isnt it? That same homeland was populated and the nation of Israel established as a result of pogroms and persecutions throughout Marxist regions driving Jews to their homeland. The healthy, stable Israeli economy now glitters in contrast to nations with crumbling central-banking economies. And now the green horse of false religion will soon run a course set by Yahweh, who alone knows the end from the beginning, to involuntarily establish JudeoChristianity as the sole true religion. Just dont ask me how, it hasnt happened yet, but the pattern is unmistakable. Dont make the mistake of believing that all prophecy is just around the corner. Many of these prophecies may be as far off as 2048. Abraham and Sarah waited long decades and finally gave up on the promise of God before trying to make it happen themselves by involving Hagar to hatch the fulfillment of the prophecy themselves. Yahweh doesnt change his schedule because our patience wears thin. Isaac was born 13 years after Ishmael was born. Likewise, it could be 2018 before the seventh seal is opened and the seven trumpets begin to sound. (Dont get upset with me yet, this date is discussed in the final chapter) Ezekiel 37 describes the end result of those trumpets. Ezek 37:22-28 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

41

And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore. Please be aware that Ezekiel lived well after the death of King David, so when he writes David my servant shall be king over them, hes referring to a direct descendant of David, but it must be one who escapes the curse upon Jeconiah and the seed royal (Jer 22:30 Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.) Yahshua has full right to the heritage of the house of Judah as the adopted son of Joseph, husband of Mary, but being the Son of Yahweh, he escapes the curse upon the seed of Jeconiah in Jer 22:30! Who, besides the only begotten Son of Yahweh, qualifies to fulfill this prophecy? Nobody! And it is he who will soon lead the nation into the promises as the age appointed to the gentile church ends at the last trump. Yahwehs Purpose For The Seven Trumpets Before leaving this section, I thought you might be interested in a verse in the book of Revelation that describes what the seven trumpets achieve: Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. What is so devastating about the seven trumpets that it brings about such an unconditional surrender by the forces of darkness to our Lord and his Christ? I wish I could tell you. It will be fascinating to behold the events as they are unleashed, particularly the last trump as it parallels the last trump of Joshua when the walls of Jericho came tumbling down. Ive reserved a balcony seat to view these events, and would like you to join me. Why do I say this? Because of 1 Cor 15:52 which says 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. This passage, then, serves as a mileage marker, it identifies for us the moment when Christ will begin to reign. The 24 elders confirm this in Rev 11:17 when they say thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. We know from 1 Cor 15:25 that he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. So the same event, the sounding of the last trump, triggers the resurrection of the just, the beginning of the Kingdom Age and the beginning of the end for the enemies of Yahweh as he then begins to pour out his wrath to destroy them which destroy the earth. (Rev 11:18) Knowing were in the midst of the events transpiring in these passages, what then should we do?

CHAPTER 4

OCCUPY TILL I COME Endure Unto The End


Until then, Assault the Gates
Yahshua came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the age. Amen. Matt 28:18-20 Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:15-16 Power (NT: 1849) authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right, strength.3 You will notice in Rev 5:5 the only one found in heaven and earth worthy to open the seals was the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Yahshua alone has All Power. He has broken the seals to accomplish His purposes, not the purposes of the enemy. He is using the ambitions, purposes and tactics of the enemy against him. The symbolic imagery is the same here as it is in our time; the lion has always been regarded as the king of the jungle. In his realm, the lion is king, in the realm of His creation, Yahshua has All Power; he is King. We are His assault force behind enemy lines commissioned, provisioned and equipped to mount an assault on the very gates of the walled city of hell. Why do you think Paul wrote Eph 6:10-18? Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of Yahweh, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of Yahweh, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of Yahweh: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; These seven accoutrements of warfare will be necessary when we assault the gate of our enemy.

43

Our enemy has many soldiers prepared with his lie. You, therefore, must have prepared yourself with the truth. You will be assaulted with the arrows and spears of accusations and innuendo, so it is vital that you put on righteousness as your breastplate so that these cannot find their mark. Relativism and moral equivalency will be poured down upon you from the positions above the gate, so you need to be prepared with the gospel of peace. The knowledge of the fall of man, that men are born into sin, but that Yahweh sent his son to pay the price of death that men might lay hold upon eternal life. This is not equivalent to other religions and Yahweh who created all things is not compared to whatever else men may call god or is worshipped. Yahwehs word is the sound foundation of truth and no man can annul it for it is absolute above any other philosophy; all else is the shifting sand of error. The world, the flesh and the Devil himself will rush headlong toward you to tempt you to sins large and small, so shield yourself with faith. Hope is good, but hope is not faith. It is good to trust Yahshua, but trust is not faith. Faith is the substance of those things you hope for, and the evidence of those unseen things that are the basis for the life you live in Christ. Your steadfastness to resist temptation to sin is the evidence that substantiates your true liberty in Christ having been delivered from the yoke of servitude to sin. Once your mind is renewed by Yahwehs Holy Spirit and you are washed from your sin and walking in Christ, rocks of doubt hurled by our enemy cannot impede you because your helmet of salvation can withstand far worse. After you have withstood this gauntlet, you will engage the enemy, but not by might, nor by power, but by the sword of the Spirit, which is The Word of Yahweh. But this is not a battle we are to left to fight alone; any field commander knows the importance of communication. The seventh and final item in our warfare is that essential field radio of prayer, for it is our Lord and King who coordinates the front line battle from his place at the right hand of Yahweh the Father until the day when every eye shall see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory when He will be clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, his name is called The Word of Yahweh. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahweh. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:15

Prepare For Battle


2 Tim 2:15 instructs us to Study to shew thyself approved unto Yahweh, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. When the Israelis were in the wilderness, Yahweh provided them bread from heaven. The people, however, called it manna. It couldnt be gathered for someone else, everyone had to gather their own. In this way, it is like Yahwehs Word. You must gather it for yourself.

44

We are called to gather together for fellowship, admonition and prayer. Prepare yourself as Paul admonished us in 1 Cor 14:26 when ye come together, everyone of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. Walk circumspectly so you wont be ashamed when you offer an admonition in love to one of your Lords wayward sheep. And prepare your heart so that your prayer is effective, for the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16) If you are a member of Christs Ekklesia, make Christ your head daily by reading His Word. Prepare your heart in prayer, and walk the walk, dont just talk the talk. Your Christianity isnt only for when youre at church. The purpose for fellowship is to prepare, equip and provision each other for battle. Prepare yourself with Yahwehs Word to be sure, but also be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Prepare For The Battle Against Evolution


Knowing the enemy of our souls has prepared a contradiction to the truth that Yahweh created the heavens and the earth and that he made the animals to bring forth after their kind, prepare your mind to know the positions of the enemy, but more importantly, study to show yourself approved by understanding the facts in evidence even better than those who have fallen for the lie. There are any number of books written by men of faith that can prepare you to vanquish this lie. The highest authority on this subject is Dr. A.E. Wilder-Smith. His book entitled The Natural Sciences Know Nothing of Evolution shows how the Natural Sciences themselves demonstrate the error of evolution theory. Learn how to use sound science to refute the false theory of evolution. I believe all of Dr. Wilder-Smiths books are available through the Word For Today ministry. Duane T. Gishs book Evolution, the Fossils Say No examines the fossil record to establish that there is no archeological evidence for evolution. As a matter of fact, it is entirely absent from the geologic record. The book Refuting Evolution by: Dr. Jonathan Sarfati can be found among the many materials made available through the ministry of Kent and Eric Hovind on his website http://www.drdino.com/. Dr. Henry Morris is another outstanding resource; you might want to begin with his book Biblical Creationism. You can use the time you spend watching television with your family to prepare for battle. Instead of paying $79 a month to bring the filth of the world into your home through a cable or satellite to pollute your family, use that money to buy from the multitude of videos and DVDs available from numerous sources online. Dr. Kent Hovinds website alone offers dozens if not hundreds of items. Just navigate to http://shopping.drdino.com/shopping.php?cat=DVDs and explore the many titles available. If you dont like Kent Hovind because hes being persecuted for his faithfulness in prison, utilize Ken Hams ministry, Answers in Genesis. 1 Peter 2:15 says For so is the will of Yahweh, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: Hasnt the fool said in his heart There is no God?

45

You dont have to be exceptionally gifted or particularly handsome. Never forget that Yahweh has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and Yahweh hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath Yahweh chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. 1 Cor 1:27-29 In other words, you and I are just who the Lord is looking for to accomplish his purposes! Wasnt the prophet Samuel impressed with the eldest three sons of Jesse, but Yahweh told Samuel that He has not chosen these, but ruddy little David out tending the sheep. It was with a David that Yahweh slew a Goliath.

Prepare For The Battle Against Marxist Liberalism


A friend once asked me if I thought that men like Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck and Michael Savage are the prophets of our time. Prophets or not, they certainly stand against the Marxist insanity that threatens the liberty of the free world. The Constitution of the United States of America is unique as a founding document for a nation. No other government that Im aware of has ever been established upon the sovereignty of the common man. Most, if not all, governments ordained by men establish a master/slave relationship between those who govern and the governed. In the united States, We The People established the supreme law of the land, and then elected public servants to carry out the law as we delivered it to them. We The People are the Sovereigns, and government is our servant. Yahweh created man; three simple words. But within these three simple words are implications so vast, and responsibilities so profound that upon these simple three words rest all justice and judgment in all times and in all places under heaven. Though men may attempt to flee from the weight of these words, none can. Psalm 2 gives us a profound insight into the battle against those who would reject the law of Yahweh. Herein we see the motive and method for Marxism and any other government of men that would enslave the heritage of Yahweh: Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

46

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. It is certainly a vain thing for men to set themselves against the LORD, yet these would break the bands of the absolute authority of Yahwehs Word and substitute asinine principles that tend only to desolation. No Marxist regime has ever brought about better conditions for those enslaved thereby. They have certainly brought death, however, it is estimated that 262 million men, women and children have been murdered by these regimes in the 20th century alone.4 Marxist sympathizers generally know only sound bites. The mantras they chant are extremely simplistic and are designed more to rouse the rabble than they are to actually persuade using facts to draw a logical conclusion or intellectually consider all sides of an argument. Most liberals dont even know that the blather they mindlessly spout is Marxist at its foundation! Usually they will flatly deny the connection between Marxism and their liberal views! Be prepared to show these ignorant souls the devastation that results from the beliefs they hold. That they have believed a lie, and are treading the broad road that leads to destruction. Acquire a grasp of the logic of this deceit, that to reject the law of God is to reject God as our creator and sovereign Lord. To reject Gods authority over man is to reject that he is loving, wise, and has provided the path to eternal life. A rejection of Gods attributes and character is to reject the very existence of Yahweh. A world-view constructed upon a foundation without Yahweh has no choice but to reject true science and embrace the false science of spontaneous generation, that life simply arose as a self-replicating organism capable of increasing in complexity. To believe such fanciful nonsense requires great faith, faith that must extinguish every fact and truth that gets in the way. Such a conceptual framework must reject absolutes in favor of relativism, and can lead to no other conclusion but moral equivalence, which is forced to accept that any behavior is acceptable (including rape, abortion, homosexuality, theft, oppression, slavery and even murder) and then considers its victims as nothing more than the losers in the struggle for life. An atheist cannot lay claim to having rights, as rights are God-given and established by the absolute final authority of Yahwehs Word. Human rights are not rights at all as they are subject to the decisions of men our equals, not by an authority greater than man. The command of Yahweh to Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy is the foundation of labor laws and is the source of the right to have one day off from work each week. The command to Honour thy father and thy mother deprives any government any authority to intervene in any way in the decisions a parent makes for his child. The parent is solely responsible before Yahweh, as this command requires that a child be in submission to the decisions of the parents. The right to educate a child in whatever manner the parent deems fit derives from this command of God. The command Thou shalt not kill establishes the right to life, especially, the life of the most vulnerable among us, including the unborn. The command Thou shalt not commit adultery establishes the right of the unborn to be born to parents bound by an oath to a life-long commitment of marriage. The right to a governmental legal structure that regards unfaithfulness, prostitution, sodomy and

47

any other extra-marital sex as unlawful, and in which marriage is defined as one man and one woman for life. The command Thou shalt not steal secures the right to absolute property ownership, and against government taxation of property, against fines, confiscation of property and impound of cars. The command Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour creates the right against confidence scams and to honest and open government, fair elections, the whole body of facts and evidence being permitted in trials, the right to unfettered responsible speech. The command Thou shalt not covet; the right to aspire to property, possessions and position beyond what my peers might be able to achieve. These are the foundations of a healthy society, a society free from the oppression, injustice and desolation that result from unbridled sin. Any people that honor Yahweh in the formation of their government will have security, justice, wealth and peace as the natural result.

Prepare For The Battle Against The Moneychangers


Use Real Money Silver and gold cannot be inflated. Precious metals remain constant in value in comparison to other commodities. Like all commodities, the price of silver and gold fluctuates according to market forces, but in the long run, they inevitably return to the same proportionate value relative to other commodities. Doesnt it make sense that if you were opposed to prostitution, you wouldnt patronize prostitutes! Neither would you extend your approval to those who do. Thats just common sense. If you were adamantly opposed to smoking, you wouldnt buy or use cigarettes. Its just logical that if you were in moral opposition to fractional reserve banking and the resulting devaluation (theft of value) of federal reserve notes, that you wouldnt want to be an accessory to the crime of counterfeiting by using it, but would want to use an alternative form of exchange if one were available. Well, many are available. Technically every time you buy something youre entering in to a private agreement to trade a product or service for something else of value. The selling party is not forced to accept what you offer in exchange for the product. If you offer a sheep for a set of luggage, its unlikely the cashier at Wal Mart will accept your terms of payment. If you, however, simply drop an Aspen, Liberty or any other precious metal exchange medium into the cashiers hand and the transaction goes through with both parties in agreement, the private contract between parties does not involve the government. Render Unto Caesar What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar's.

48

Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. Matt 22:17-21 KJV Of Men and Corporations I want to be sure you understand that it is not my intention here to encourage tax evasion. Government has valid functions and has valid financial needs. Though it may be a fact that much that the federal government meddles in is a result of over-reaching the boundaries established by the Constitution, and that the federal behemoth has lost sight of its proper role relative to its purpose to serve the people, these issues are neither the subject nor focus of this writing. I would be willing to pay more tax to be restored to my proper venue, to the rights ordained by Yahweh's Word and to the liberty established by the Constitution of the United States of America. Fortunately, the Constitution is still the supreme law of the land, and Yahwehs word has always been, and shall always be the final authority above anything else in the dealings and affairs of men. Churches arent the only ones being deceived into accepting a status other than what Yahweh intended for us. Sadly, the government of the united States of America has engaged in a practice by which they have enslaved men made in the image of Yahweh, by tricking them into accepting a venue and jurisdiction shared with corporations in that they are under the rule of governments made by men, and not by God. These tactics have converted almost the entire population of our country into chattel; into nothing more than warehouse merchandise and issued a warehouse number we know as a social security number. By playing little games involving the capitalization of names, and by changing your given name into a repugnant variation by substituting an initial for one of your given names, they trick you into thinking that you are the person indicated by that spelling. Its all but impossible to function financially without forfeiting all your God-given and Constitutionally secured rights. In exchange were forced to settle for civil rights, privileges and immunities granted, not by God, but by men seeking to establish a master/slave relationship. All those laws that would otherwise apply only to corporations then bind you. In short, you become merchandise that can be bought and sold. The Book of Revelation lists all forms of merchandise and includes souls of men right after slaves. Heres the passage for your review: And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

49

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Rev 18:9-14 Two verses later Rev 18:15 says: The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing Who are these merchants that are made rich by merchandising in the souls of men? We dont know their names. These moneyed elite, like the banksters on the Federal Reserve Board, no longer make their names known. Its only a guess who buys and sells people that have been converted into merchandise. It has become common practice to ask someones First, Middle or Last name. As a living man created in the image of Yahweh and solely under the jurisdiction of Yahweh, you have a family name and you have a given name. Corporations dont have family names and given names. Anyone with a family name and a given name is a living creation of Yahweh whose family traces back to the first man, Adam, who Luke 3:38 tells us was a son of Yahweh. If you are also born from above into the family of Jesus Christ the Righteous, you are a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven as well, having been born again as a direct descendant of the last Adam, Yahshua HMashiyach. Yahweh Created Man, Therefore, men will never rule over Yahweh. Yahweh is sovereign over men. Man Created Government. In order for government to be pure, holy, right and just in ruling over men, it must itself be subject to the law of Yahweh and carry out His law. Any law deviating from Yahwehs Holy law is null and void ab initio/nunc pro tunc (from the beginning as if it never took place). Man is only subject to the law of his creator. Men are not subject to any law, rule or government established by other men, for as the framers of the Constitution rightly observed, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Any law, rule or government that does not have a direct lineage to Yahwehs Word is not a law, rule or government with any authority to have jurisdiction over men. Any government, therefore, that is a creation of men, cannot rule over men. Over such a government, men are sovereign, and as a fiction created by men, government is the subject. A government ordained of men can only rightly govern by the authority of the law of Yahweh, or by the consent of those governed. Government Created Corporations A corporation is a fiction, an idea, an entity that has a presence at law among men, but it has no rights because it is not a man. Its creator is the government and it is wholly subject to the laws made by that government. Yahwehs Word does not create, nor does it govern, fictions such as corporations. Yahwehs righteous law governs men; mens acts, omissions and interactions, and the reprisals, repercussions and consequences that arise from the violation of those laws. But

50

corporations are a creation of the governments created by men. Men and corporations do not have equal standing before the law. Yahwehs law governs men. Unless a law has its basis in Yahwehs law, it has no force or validity over men. All laws applying to men have an enacting clause on their face establishing a direct lineage back to the tradition of the Supreme Law of the Land (the Constitution) which has at its basis God-given rights. Corporations are not men and thus are subject to the laws made by governments ordained of men because Yahweh neither created them, nor does the law of Yahweh govern them. The 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz skillfully weaves the theme of venue and jurisdiction into the movie through the use of a colored (color of law) world called Oz where people of diminished stature (status) sing of being nothing more than fictions (Lollipop Guild, Lullaby League) whose benefactor is a good witch named Glenda (Government lender [FDIC banks]). Dorothy encounters other full-size people including a scarecrow without a brain (representing those deceived by the scam), a tin woodsman, representing those whose metal (precious metals/money) was rusted (seized) making productivity impossible, and a cowardly lion (representing moral cowards too timid to take a stand). Dorothy also finds an enemy in the wicked witch of the west (western central banking) who wouldnt otherwise care about Dorothy except that she has on a pair of Ruby-red slippers (representing her life [the life of the flesh is in the blood]). A living man or woman with God-given rights is a threat in the colored fiction-land of Oz, so the witch wants to get her, and her little dog too (Toto = Latin for everything). Dorothy at one point tries to take off her ruby slippers, but discovers that as long as shes alive they wont come off. The witch then sets up an hourglass because, these things must be done delicately (by a slippery slope of incrementalism and gradual encroachment of rights). Dorothy Finally encounters the wizard behind the levers of power, but discovers hes a fraud (the US government has been a corporation since Lincoln and declared bankruptcy in 1933), and even though his hands are on the levers of power, his only skill is in floating balloons, but admits his balloons arent reliable to get you where you want to go. The balloon having failed her, she finds that by bringing to bear her standing (that which she has been standing in [ruby slippers], being a living flesh and blood descendant of the first man created by God and accountable solely to God) she can return to Kansas (the venue and jurisdiction of the black and white common or natural law). The Matrix is another movie about the re-venue deception of a fictional world, but is so obvious; its not worth taking the time to elaborate upon.

Prepare For The Battle Against Islam


To understand Islam in infinite depth, navigate to the web site: http://www.prophetofdoom.net The Prophet of Doom website is unbelievably thorough and meticulously documented. They pull no punches and lay out the truth about Islam for all to see. I couldnt possibly craft a better expos of Islam if I tried. So rather than re-invent the wheel, I opted to direct you to the wheel inventor. If you wish to prepare yourself for encounters with Muslims, heres a site that can help you: http://www.answering-islam.org. If you simply wish to donate money toward a ministry dedicated to sharing Christ with those repressed by Islam, heres a site that is doing just that: http://awm.gospelcom.net. Our military, as adaptable as they are, has engaged an enemy that cannot be defeated militarily. The bottom-line function of any formal military is to kill people and break things. These methods alone can never change a culture wherein the hearts and minds of men and women are fully immersed in a deception. Dont misconstrue this as voicing a protest against the war. The government has an obligation to act in the interests of the nation and to engage external threats. It is not my intention to disparage our rightful government or military in these pages. As individual Christians, however, we must remember who we are and whom we serve. Yahshua never called down lightning on his enemies, nor did he command legions of angels to dispatch Rome from the land of promise. Its not Yahwehs will that any should perish, but that all should lay hold upon the gift of life. The weapons of our warfare are spiritual, and our success isnt measured in bodies slain on a battlefield, but in souls gathered into heaven. There will come a day when the wicked are dispatched from the earth, but it should be our prayer that we would be effective in winning as many souls to repentance so as to make the number destined to hell as small as possible. It is because the end of the age is near that we need to seek to be more and more faithful, knowing that men whom Christ died to redeem will perish. We are still living in that period of time described in the seals, specifically the fifth seal. It is possible that the sixth seal will be opened at some time in the next seven years, more on this later. Luke 21:28 tells us that when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Perhaps this parallel will help elucidate matters for us.

The Walls of Jericho


Just as Canaanite usurpers had established themselves as rulers of the land which Yahweh gave to the descendants of Isaac and had built an impenetrable fortress, so the four ideologies of the four horsemen have established a fortress now at the end of this age to ensnare all who live upon the earth. The parallel to Jericho is the four walls used to create a fortress to defend those who would usurp the heritage of the people of Yahweh: 1) Though not scientific, Darwinism has become the litmus test for all science, defending their gate against all who do not accept its premise of godlessness. 2) Though not just, communism (socialism/liberalism/democracy) subverts any nation who cherishes freedom. Through infiltration and intimidation, they work 52

within free societies to create polarized factions through which they ruthlessly eliminate their opposition and make the 10 planks of the Communist manifesto (liberalism) their litmus test for political correctness. 3) Though not equitable, Satans counterfeit money economy will, through economic sanctions, IRS audit, real estate and asset seizure, wage garnishment and/or wrongful employment terminations bankrupt any nation or individual who doesnt dance to its tune. 4) Though not the worship of the true and living God, Islam puts to death those who dont bow to their false prophet and their Allah whose real identity is revealed in Rev 6:8 as Death. Academic hegemony, political hegemony, economic hegemony and religious hegemony all flowing from The Lie, and Satan in the midst of this worldly counterfeit of Yahwehs heavenly throne. The Lie of Yea, hath God said? disputes the veracity of Eves lord, Adam, as well as casting doubt on Yahweh himself who gave the command. This lie enables men to believe they are the master of their own destiny and the captain of their own fate. Base an academic foundation, a government, an economy or a religion upon this shifting foundation and the result is instability, injustice, desolation and ultimately, destruction and collapse. The tragedy is that in casting off the knowledge of Yahweh and seeking to become gods they create their own enslavement. Christ clearly taught to Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to Yahweh the things that are Yahweh's. Mark 12:17. Tax money (with Caesars image upon it) can be rendered again to Caesar, but that which was created in the image of Yahweh should be rendered only to Yahweh. Each of the four horsemen seek to receive to themselves that which is reserved solely to Yahweh; the subjugation of the hearts and minds of men. The one sole threat to the fortress of Jericho was the children of Israel who followed the Lord their God. The threat to the fortress established upon the lie by the ruler of this world today is also the people of Yahweh. The Canaanites had usurped that which was given to Abraham, Isaac & Jacob, and Jericho was their fortress. In our day, the katoikeo epi tees gees (those descended from the house [of Adam] upon the earth) have usurped that which was purchased by Yahshua HMashiyach (this being the dominion of the earth and its inhabitants), and the walls of their fortress are these four spheres of influence through which they will seek to dominate all men which dwell upon the face of the earth. Lets look more closely at the Jericho campaign in an attempt to understand the battle that will soon take place as the end of the age draws near.

The Jericho Campaign


Its necessary at this juncture to bring the reader up to speed regarding a mystery involving the imagery of the throne of Yahweh. Before the throne of Yahweh (seen both in Ezekiel 1 and Revelation 4) are four living creatures described as being like a man, an ox, an eagle and a lion.

53

(Please dont scan right now; its important that you concentrate your focus on this very intricate parallel in order to understand the prophecies of the Bible as they pertain to our time.) Yahweh, who created the heavens and the earth, left His signature on his creation, as well as on His Word, using this same pattern of one surrounded by four, examples include: The four rivers in Genesis 2 flowing from one central point, Adams dominion over the four categories of living creatures upon the earth, the marching formation in the wilderness with the Levites & tabernacle in the middle, The ribbon of blue on the four corners of the garment of Hebrew males. the four precincts of the temple with the porch being the central feature, the four corners of the earth, the four winds, the quadrants of the heavens (yes, this is biblical) and there are many many more. But the one Id like to bring forward for your examination is the four ages appointed to this creation. If youre a well-studied disciple of Yahshua, as I hope you are, you may be asking yourself where exactly in the Bible is the passage that talks about the four ages appointed to this creation. Ill save you some time scouring the Bible encyclopedias and commentaries. You wont find it. There are four patriarchs who serve to demarcate the four eons of time appointed to this creation. a. Each patriarch is brought forth by a direct intervention of Yahweh. b. Each arises from something that is incapable of bringing forth life of itself. c. Each in some way faces death and lives to tell about it. d. From each are people of two natures divided, one rebellious, and the other righteous. e. From each patriarch arises a distinct people and a culminating witness, who each bear the distinguishing characteristic of their patriarch. 1. The first of the four patriarchs is Adam. The patriarch of mankind was a direct creation of Yahweh(a), brought forth from the dust of the ground(b), disobeyed a command of Yahweh under penalty of death(c), but lived to tell about it. Cain and Abel were his sons(d). From Abel descends those who called upon the name of the Lord, but from Cain descended a rebellious people from whom God took the breath of life in the flood that covered the earth. At the end of the first epoch appointed to this creation, mankind finds themselves in a place called Babel led by a man named Nimrod(e) whose perversion of the worship of the one true God remains legendary to this day. 2. The second patriarch of an age is Isaac, brought forth from the womb of a 90 year old woman(b) by a miracle of Yahweh(a), was obedient unto death at the hand of his father Abraham(c), but lived to tell about it, and from him was born Esau (Edom) and Jacob(d) from whom arose the Chosen People(e) whose defining characteristic is faithfulness unto death. Because the end of the age of Israel is divided by the 70week prophecy of Daniel, John the Baptist is a kind of a pinch hitter fulfilling the role of the culminating witness (Elijah) in part until Israel enters into the promises at the end of the age appointed to the church. John the Baptist, about whom Yahshua said Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the

54

Baptist, fulfilled the Gilgal model in baptizing Yahshua and heralding the call of repentance to the nation Israel. Though he was born of a woman well beyond childbearing age as Isaac was, he is not the culminating witness simply because there remains the 70th week to Israel. 3. The third patriarch ushering in our Church age is Yahshua, born of a virgin(a&b), crucified, dead and buried, but rose the third day(c). From him descends all those born from above(d) to a heavenly heritage, as well as those whose faith rests in a man known as Pope and a priesthood organization that has persecuted the true church for centuries. As Yahshua was resurrected, so the witness(e) at the end of the age reflects the character of the patriarch of the age. Like Jesus, when the culminating witness at the end of the age finishes his testimony (Rev 11:7-12) the beast . . . shall . . . kill them . . . And their dead bodies shall lie in the street . . . And after three days and an half . . . the Spirit of life from God entered into them . . . And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud. You may ask Why are there two witnesses at the end of this age? The answer is Because the Church Age Is parenthetical. That is, it occupies the period of time between the 69 weeks of years of Daniels prophecy, and the 70th week appointed to Israel, which coincides with the end of the Church Age. Thus, these two witnesses occur simultaneously, one is the culminating witness for the age appointed to the church, and the other marks the final week of the divided age appointed to Israel. So, does the resurrection reflect the nature and character of both Isaac and Yahshua? You bet! The nation Israel was put to death by Rome who renamed the region Palestina. Just as Jesus was put to death and resurrected, so has the nation Israel been resurrected now at the end of this church age. One resurrected to earthly promises, the other to heavenly, both resurrected to abundant life. The sealing of the 144,000 and the resurrection of both witnesses after three days is Yahwehs testimony in prophecy that the nation Israel will enter in to the heritage of faithfulness to Yahshua the Mashiyach of Israel. 4. The fourth and final patriarch of the last age appointed to this creation is Emmanuel, the firstborn from the dead(a,b&c), The two peoples divided, one worldly, and the other spiritual(d) are best understood in light of Matthew 25: When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

55

Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. As Cain dispatched his righteous brother Abel from the earth early in the first age, at Messiahs triumphant return, the one who shed his blood to redeem what Adam lost will dispatch from the earth those who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness: 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 (King James Version): And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. The culminating witness? Im not a prophet and were not told directly, but I believe it will be Enoch(e). Enoch has some unique credentials; he was himself resurrected and hasnt died yet, his testimony is recorded in Jude 14-15, and it sounds a lot like what the witness at the end of the Kingdom age might say: And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. And as the verse above testifies, he is the seventh from Adam; is it a leap that he will culminate the final age appointed to man that happens to occur in the seventh millennia since creation? If nothing else, its an interesting play on idioms. The natures of the four living creatures before the throne of Yahweh are reflected in the four patriarchs of the ages. The man, the ox, the eagle, and the lion. Adam, the first man. Isaac, faithful unto death as an ox that cannot be forced to the altar, but must go willingly. (the only kosher of the four living creatures before the throne) Yahshua, the Son of man, which is in heaven, symbolized by the eagle. And Emmanuel, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the one who will reign for the final 1000 years appointed to this earth. In Ps 90:10 the Psalmist writes, The days of our years are threescore years and ten. Threescore and ten constitutes a creation week of decades.

56

Apply the creation weak template over the millenniums appointed to this earth in scripture, and it would appear the centuries appointed to this earth are, likewise, threescore and ten. From Adam to Isaac were 2,000 years. From Isaac to Yahshua 2,000. From Yahshua to the last trump 2,000 with the final 1,000 years pertaining to the Kingdom age. After all, a day with the Lord is as a thousand years; in six days work, on the seventh day rest. Six thousand years with a seventh millennial rest. With this under our belt, lets return to Joshua.

The Pattern
The pattern of the throne of Yahweh is again observed in the book of Revelation. As Yahweh is in the midst of the four living creatures in heaven, Yahweh himself is in some way in the midst of each of these models he established. After John is transported to the day of the Lord, there are four sevens revealed to him. These four sevens arent random. The seals feature the house of Adam, the trumpets have to do with Israel, the thunders pertain to the church and the vials the coming Kingdom. Chronologically Yahweh himself became manifest in the flesh between the eon appointed to the progeny of Isaac and the eon appointed to those born from above into the family of the Son of Yahweh. So also will Yahweh appear in the midst of these four sevens. After the Trumpets we see the Lord in the midst of these four manifestations of this divine pattern in the form of the true Church being called out of the earth at the last trump. This parallels the model of the Temple. The temple serves as an architectural model of the ages appointed to man. The first age begins with Adam, culminates with Nimrod. Ultimately the descendants of Adam are judged and scattered, Babel is destroyed. This period is represented by the precinct of the Temple known as the court of the gentiles. The second age begins with Isaac, temporarily ends with John the Baptist, and is scattered at the destruction of the Temple in 70AD. This period is represented by the precinct of the Temple known as the court of the Jews. The central feature of the court of the Jews is the Brass Altar. Like the cross, the altar is tetrogonos. This word refers to having four angles or quarters. It is translated foursquare. As the brass altar is the final structure in this court, Christ came into the world at the end of the second age to offer himself an offering for sin. Beyond the altar of sacrifice in the court of the Jews was the staircase rising to the porch of the temple, which represents the ascension of Christ rising to heaven where he now sits at the right hand of Yahweh. Isnt it interesting that the porch, the central feature of the temple represents heaven, where Christ now sits at the right hand of Yahweh? Just as the Nation Israel was freed in the chronological midst of the four empires who dominated the Promised Land at the end of the age appointed to Isaac, so the Church will be taken to meet their Lord in the air in the midst of the four sevens of Revelation, at the last trump. The third age begins with Yahshua, whose defining characteristic is his resurrection from the dead, and ends with the resurrection of those born from above into the

57

heavenly family of Yahwehs only begotten Son. This period is represented by the precinct of the Temple known as the Holy Place which contains: o the seven-branched candlestick (Yahshua said I am the vine, ye are the branches with reference to the church), o the table of leavened showbread (leaven symbolizes sin and by extension, the gentile church which, by and large, doesnt considers itself under the law [of Moses]), and o the altar of incense, also called the golden altar (Yahshua said in this world ye shall have tribulation). Incense yields a sweet-smelling savor by undergoing a process of fire, symbolizing the gentile church which undergoes a process of fire through that promised tribulation which worketh patience Rev 3:10 says: Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. and o the veil that separates it from the Holy of Holies. The fourth age will begin in Revelation 11:15 with Emmanuel, God with us. This period is represented by the precinct of the Temple known as the Holy of Holies. Everything in this area is overlaid with gold. The Ark of the Covenant resides herein and the mercy seat, the throne of the King, which rests upon it and the law written on the tables of stone within it (the foundation of the Kings authority). This age will end with us being with Yahweh in the new heavens and new earth in which dwelleth righteousness throughout the ages to come. Christ opened the seals allowing Satan to bring The Lie, the strong delusion to its full culmination. But Yahweh is not mocked. No pendulum can remain at the end of its path of travel, it must return to center. Since the fall of Adam there have been people whose ideologies have run contrary to Yahwehs truth. Truth and error mirror the balance of nature. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. Truth seeks its own level. Yahshua said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. As in nature, so in the ages of time, the restoration of all things to the truth in Christ is inevitable. Equilibrium must and will be restored. A tidal wave cannot be stopped. In the Second World War, when Japanese soldiers were faced with hopeless odds, they would engage in a Bonsai charge. The hope was to strike fear in the heart of their enemy so that they might inflict as much destruction as they could with the final act of their life. Just as Pharaoh drowned as he pursued the children of Isaac through the midst of the sea, once the church is liberated from the bondage of this world in the resurrection of the just, Satan is destined to parallel these. Knowing he is defeated, he makes his bonsai charge with those whose loyalty, and fate, is sealed. Those who have chosen the broad road finally arrive at their destination in the final seven as destruction rises to meet them. The end of this age then draws nigh, as does their appointment with death and the judgment that follows. In Matt 25 we read about the day . . . 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

58

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. The words everlasting and eternal in verse 46 are a mistranslation arising out of a doctrinal misunderstanding. The Greek word for both is a form of aion (eng. eon). Properly aion should be translated to indicate an eon, or a period of time. Any other translation is considered to be an extension of its foundational meaning. In other words, the translator took liberties in ascribing other meanings to the word to suit his own doctrinal understanding or assumption. In this verse, the unrighteous are dispatched into punishment specifically during the living age appointed to this earth. This makes more sense from a doctrinal standpoint because we know that the unrighteous dead will rise following the Kingdom Age in the resurrection of the damned, so if they were in this verse dispatched to everlasting punishment, it wouldnt be everlasting if it were punctuated by the second resurrection event. I dont think there would be coffee breaks or field trips from everlasting punishment. Additionally, it should be noted that the events of this verse do not occur in heaven. Rather, it takes place When the Son of man shall come in his glory, to the earth. So in the latter half of the verse, the righteous are permitted to continue upon the earth into the living age following this defining event. Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he. Isa 41:4

59

At some point, both the age appointed to Isaac and the age appointed to the gentile church will end. The church age ends at the resurrection when the last trump sounds, but Jews will be faced with one of only two choices before the time appointed to the progeny of Isaac comes to an end: 1. Reject HMashiyach and share the destiny of those descended solely from Adam, (the wrath of Yahweh contained in the final 7 vials) or 2. By faith follow the one who is The King of the Jews, receive the seal of protection from Yahwehs wrath and enter into the Kingdom Age promises. The heritage of the descendants of Isaac (who [in symbolism] represent the sacrificial ox) is faithfulness unto death. Their faithfulness through their suffering in this life was the fulfillment of that picture. The age yet to come is symbolized by the lion; the lion of the tribe of Judah. Those of Israel in that day who receive their King, will be (in symbolism) parallel to those who followed Joshua into the land of promise to vanquish the fortress of Jericho, dispossess the usurpers and possess the land of promise. The 7 trumpets in Revelation are a parallel of the Jericho event. Because the fifth seal occurs in heaven, there are no indicators upon earth from which to extrapolate when it begins or ends, more on this later. The sixth seal, however is much more overt. When we begin to observe the events of the sixth seal, we will know the sealing of the 144,000 is taking place and the seven trumpets are about to sound. The sealing of the 144,000 in the sixth seal reminds us of the plagues in Egypt that had no effect upon the Hebrews. From the judgments of the first trumpet onward, Yahweh makes a distinction between those who are sealed and those who are not.

The Battle Strategy


The battle strategy given by God to Joshua was to march around the walled city of Jericho once each day for six days. On the seventh day, they were to march around the city seven times in a particular formation; seven priests blew seven trumpets (the shofar, or rams-horn trumpet, the same trumpet used to initiate the jubilee after seven Sabbaths of years or 49 years) and the people shouted. The walls of Jericho then fell down and the city fell to the people whos God is the LORD. In Revelation there are also 7 trumpets, and the four walls of Satans fortress will fall as easily, for they are not established upon the rock of truth, they are hobbled together upon shifting sands of falsehoods. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matt 7:24-27 KJV Lets look at the parallel to the 7 trumpets of Revelation in Joshua 6: it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city. KJV

60

Now lets look at Revelation 11:15: And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. KJV In both instances, following the seventh trumpet, there was a great shout of voices. In both instances there was a pronouncement of property changing hands. In the two verses below we see that in both instances, there was an event involving both judgment and reward; In Josh 6:24 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD. 25 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho. KJV And in Revelation 11:18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. In a preceding section in this book, we examined the Temple and its environs as it parallels all of human history. In the Holy place of the temple there was a veil separating the Holy place from the Holy of Holies. Symbolically, this veil separates the church age from the kingdom age. Consider the meaning of Revelation 11:19: Rev 11:19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. Revelation 11:19 provides us with a mileage marker; it gives us a point of reference with respect to when this demarcation in history takes place. This marker tells us that we are transitioning from the last days of this age into the kingdom age, represented by the Holy of Holies in the temple where the Ark of the Covenant (testament) resides. Why is this a recognizable mileage marker? Because each precinct of the temple parallels the four ages appointed to this creation. This passage depicts the veil of the temple being opened and the Ark of the Covenant being seen beyond. In other words, the kingdom age is just ahead, and nothing unholy can enter therein. This is why When the Son of man shall come in his glory those deceived by the strong delusion are dispatched into everlasting punishment. Those who embraced the lie and rejected the one who is the way, the truth and the life cannot enter the Kingdom Age.

The Trumpets
At the time of Joshua, it was the sounding of seven trumpets that brought down the walls of Jericho. Clearly, the 7 trumpets in Revelation represent what will culminate in the toppling of the stronghold of Satan and his subjugation of the heritage of Yahweh. Following the Jericho campaign, there were other battles, but Jericho was the stronghold of the Canaanites. Though this was but the first battle when they entered the land, it signified the eventual and ultimate victory by the Israelites. The seven trumpets of Revelation clearly parallel the trumpets of the Jericho campaign. The trumpets of Revelation, being the second seven (1. seals, 2. trumpets, 3.

61

thunders, 4. vials) in the pattern of the throne of Yahweh (man, ox, eagle, lion), pertain to the ox, or the house of Isaac upon earth. It is my belief that it is in the trumpet judgments that Yahweh will judge those nations that oppose and exalt themselves against the people whose God is Yahweh. It is then at the seventh and last trump that gentile believers are resurrected in parallel to the same pattern. By way of (reinforced) explanation, as Yahweh is in the midst of the 4 cherubim, so is there a divine manifestation in the midst of every fourfold pattern that parallels Yahwehs throne. The reason the order of the images of the cherubim is first man, then ox, then eagle, then lion is due to the order of the ages or epochs appointed to this earth. The first score of centuries pertained to the fallen house of Adam (man), the second 2,000 years to the Chosen People descended from Isaac (ox), the third epoch pertains to those born from above into the family of Yahshua the son of Yahweh (eagle) and the final millennium to Emmanuel (lion) in the coming Kingdom Age. Yahweh fulfilled the prophecy to Abraham that Yahweh would provide himself a lamb by providing himself in the form of his Son. He did this at the end of the second epoch appointed to this creation. Following the resurrection, the third epoch we refer to as the church age began. If you are a student of the Bible, you will recall that the Babylonian captivity ended before the end of the Median/Persian empire (the second of four) and before the Greek (third). Symbolically, the Chosen People went up to Jerusalem from captivity. Likewise following the second of four sevens in Revelation, the church is resurrected before the thunders and vials. You may question why the thunders make their pronouncement in the sixth trumpet. It says clearly in Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished. I take this to mean that the pronouncements of the thunders (a mystery because it is sealed and not revealed) wont be manifest until the church is gathered to Christ in heaven at the last trump. At the time of this writing in the year 2011, anti-Semitism is on the rise as it was in Europe before the holocaust. In 1939, prior to he holocaust, the worlds Jewish population was estimated at 17 million11. The 6 million Jews murdered during the holocaust constitute roughly one third of that population. A quick look at the trumpet judgments of Revelation reveals they are one third effective. Here are the pertinent phrases for your review: Revelation 8:7. The first angel sounded, . . . and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8. And the second angel sounded, . . . and the third part of the sea became blood; 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 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. Revelation 9:14. 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.

62

15. 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. Could it be that the trumpet judgments are the vengeance of Yahweh upon the remnant of the house of Adam upon the earth for the mistreatment of the Chosen People at their hand? Thats my guess, bolstered by the fact that the word third part occurs 12 times! One for every tribe of Israel? What a hint!

Israels Prophesy
Understanding the pattern of Yahwehs throne and seeing this pattern in the works of God throughout His Word often illuminates otherwise difficult passages of scripture. There is a very obscure prophecy about the times in which we live encrypted within a series of pronouncements made by Jacob over his 12 sons just before his death. When the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness under Moses, they were divided to march under four banners. The standard of the tribe of Reuben bore the image of a man, the standard of the tribe of Ephraim bore the image of an ox, the standard of the tribe of Dan bore an eagle and a serpent, and the standard of the tribe of Judah bore the image of a lion. These (as by now you recognize) are the same images depicted upon the cherubim before the throne of God. (The exception is the serpent, but you will see in a moment why this is significant.) As elaborated in the preceding section, the four ages appointed to this creation correspond each with one of these creatures. The standard of Reuben parallels the first man, Adam. The standard of Ephraim parallels the ox, (an animal which by virtue of its size and strength cannot be forced to the altar, but is faithful unto death as was Isaac in obedience to Abraham his father). The standard of Dan, upon which is depicted an eagle, clearly represents those born from above of Yahshuas church. And last, but not by any means least, the lion of the tribe of Judah representing Emmanuel the King of kings and the Kingdom age. As we are in the last days of the ages appointed to both the re-gathered nation Israel as well as the church, I would like to focus on the prophecy of Israel over his son Dan whose standard bore an eagle and a serpent. Before we probe the substance of the prophecy, it must be noted that in Gen 49:1 Jacob introduced these prophecies in this manner: Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. These prophecies, therefore, pertain to the last days, specifically, the period beginning with the re-gathering of the nation Israel into the land in 1948 AD. Here is the entire prophecy over Dan in Gen 49:16-18 KJV: Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD. Make what you will of the first and last clauses; I would like to focus specifically on the portion in bold above. 63

I find it intriguing that this prophecy over the tribe represented by an eagle on their standard contains verbiage referencing horse and rider similar to the seals in Revelation wherein is a description of four horses and four riders and, again, the context pertains to the last days! Are we to understand that this prophecy pertains to the last days of both the divided age appointed to Israel and the age appointed to the church against whom the gates of hell will not prevail? Read on. Israel was resurrected as a nation in 1948, and thus has been a nation 63 years as of this writing. What follows is what I believe is the fulfillment of this prophecy based on a creation week of decades (structured according to the three-score and ten model). Please keep in mind that the image on the standard of Dan is the eagle which (in the model of the four ages) pertains to the Christian epoch, so the fulfillment wont involve the nation Israel, it pertains to gentile Christians; specifically, a nation founded on Christian principles whose national symbol is the eagle! How was the white horse (representing white supremacy) bitten in the heels in a Christian nation represented by an eagle 20 years after Israel became a nation? Perhaps it was fulfilled in 1968 when President Lyndon Johnson signed the final of four civil rights acts establishing equality to all races under the law, (The Civil Rights Act of 1957, the more forceful Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968, Title VIII, also known as the Fair Housing Act) What about 1988 after the second score of years? Was 1988 a significant year in the fulfillment of the red horse of communism being bitten on the heel and falling backward? In the final year of Ronald Reagans Presidential administration (1988), this President of a country represented by the eagle, abruptly ended disarmament talks with the leader of the Soviet Union when he was asked to end the Strategic Defense Initiative program (a key component of his strategy to bankrupt the evil empire). This key event was the pebble that snowballed into the ultimate breakup of the Soviet Union causing the Red horse of Communism to fall backwards. Certainly other factors were involved; the labor strikes in Poland, plummeting oil prices etc., but it is widely accepted that Ronald Reagan was the prime mover of the strategy to afflict economic hardship on the communist regime of the Soviet Union in order to end their economic viability as a military super-power. What about the black horse of central banking 20 years later in the third score of years. Is the banking collapse of 2008 the fulfillment of Jacobs prophecy over his son who is represented by an eagle on his standard in the wilderness? It fits the pattern. Was it borne of intentional causation from within the Bush Administration? Thats not as relevant as the time and locale of its fulfillment. It occurred right on time, 20 years after the red horse was bitten on the heels in the Christian nation represented by an eagle. In none of these instances was the horse or rider vanquished. In all cases the ideology merely suffered a setback, i.e. it fell backward and was thus prevented from achieving absolute world domination. The final horseman of the Apocalypse has not yet been bitten on the heel by the serpent in fulfillment of Jacobs prophecy. The last significant date will be when the final ten (of the three score & ten) passes, so we will expect the final, green, horse to be bitten on the heels and fall backward in 2018.

64

I have no doubt that this prophecy will be fulfilled upon the final horse (the green horse). I just have no idea what form it will take. Will it be an American president who fulfills the prophecy? Considering the first two (possibly three) it seems likely. It is largely unknown how President (as of this writing) Barack Hussein Obama will conduct himself relative to Islamic interests here or abroad. I pray he will be a force for good and not for evil in the world, but willingly or unwillingly he and his presidency will play into Yahwehs ultimate plan, so I personally dont intend to lose any sleep over it. You cant stop a tidal wave, and you cant stop a prophecy. Its going to happen and all we can do is look back after it happens and say, Oh, look, it happened! It doesnt matter who is president at the time Yahweh intends for these prophecies to be fulfilled, they WILL come to pass, and exactly as He intends. Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he. Isa 41:4 When the Pharisees told Yahshua to make his disciples shut up, he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. Luke 19:40 KJV Yahweh doesnt need a faithful statesman like Alan Keyes, Chuck Baldwin or Ron Paul to accomplish his will. It would be nice, but wasnt it a Roman governor named Pontius Pilate who declared Yahshua to be the King of the Jews; in writing, on a public notice? Wasnt it Cyrus, a gentile emperor who issued the commandment to rebuild the temple, and financed the venture? And I wouldnt call LBJ a saint either, but he was the instrument God chose to sign the Civil Rights legislation in the 60s. Will the Obama administration be a willing instrument in Gods hand, or will he kick the can down the road to another presidential administration? It really doesnt matter, Yahweh is in the drivers seat and the only thing kings and presidents can do is roll the cars window up and down or play with the radio. Because Yahweh is in the drivers seat, our only choices are to stay in the bus and get there safely, or get out and be left behind. You may want to review Israels prophecy over his son Joseph representing the nation Israel in these last days. It fits quite well. You will find it in Gen 49:22-26.

Future Speculation, The Abrahamic Model


As Bereans (Acts 17:11) we are called to be responsible regarding what we accept as truth. For this reason, please dont blindly accept my end-times paradigm (which immediately follows). Just as scientists are expected to test hypothesis by controlled experimentation on carefully calibrated instruments using substances of tested, known molecular values in order to prove what is fact, so we are called to test spiritual things by the Word of the living God in order to prove what is true. Because future prophecy isnt something that anyone should be dogmatic about, I ask for your grace as I simply lay out some possibilities solely for interests sake. Im not trying to mislead you, this is my personal belief, but you are responsible before the Lord for what you believe and why you believe it. With that proviso noted, here goes: The patriarch Abraham was born 1,948 years after Adam was formed. We know this because in Genesis the ages of men are given when their offspring are born. When you add up the numbers, you will discover the exact year Abraham was born. Now lets

65

change gears to the time in which we live. The modern nation Israel was born (so to speak) 1,948 years after Yahshua, the last Adam, was born. Naysayers may dismiss this coincidence using arguments about corrupt calendars or disputes about contemporaneous events that cast doubt as to when Yahshua was actually born. I accept the Gregorian calendar date because it fits. It is a matter of fact that AD represents the Latin phrase "anno domini" which means "in the year of our Lord. In my humble opinion, when Dionysius Exiguus calculated the date for 1 AD back in the year 575, I bet he probably knew better than his modern day detractors when Yahshua was born. My view of the last days involves a parallel between the birth of Abraham 1,948 years after Adam, and the birth of the nation Israel 1,948 years after the last Adam; Yahshua. Did you know that in Gen 15:13-16, Yahweh tells us how long a generation is? Yahweh said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full What conclusions can we draw from this? One possible conclusion is based upon the fact that Isaac, the child of promise was born to Abraham one generation, or 100 years after Abrahams birth. Will the fulfillment of the child of promise take place 100 years, or one generation after Israel was resurrected as a nation? I believe so. Yahshua told us in Matt 24:34 that This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. What generation was he referring to? He was referring to Matt 24:29, and to that generation beginning Immediately after the tribulation of those days. If you wish, you may go back to Gen 11:8-9 where the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel Why is this significant? Its significant because there are no historical narratives or intervening text between this event and the introduction of Abraham. If the birth of Abraham 1948 years after the first Adam parallels the birth of the nation Israel 1948 years after the last Adam, then the judgment of Babel parallels the tribulation of recent history. What tribulation am I talking about? Tribulation would be a good word for describing the Holocaust, wouldnt it? You may recall from a previous section where I expressed my view that the genocides and atrocities of the axis powers in World War II were the result and culmination of the four world domination ideologies that sought to usurp Yahwehs order upon the earth. Hitlers embrace of all four ideologies of Satan positioned him conceptually in the midst of the four, just as Yahweh is in the midst of the four living creatures; In the holy place, as it were. But Hitlers efforts were not successful because the gates of hell are not appointed to prevail against the church of Yahshua HMashiyach. Just as Abrahams birth followed close upon the heels of the confusion of the language and the scattering at Babel, so the gathering of the nation Israel and the

66

restoration of a pure language constitutes a parallel work of God following the defeat of Hitler, another man of sin, parallel to Nimrod. Based on this, I believe 2048 AD, (one generation/100 years after 1948 AD), may be the year Yahshua (Emmanuel) fulfills the parallel of Isaacs birth and returns to reign. No, Im not setting dates. Im not trying to convince you that you should sell everything and go stand on a hilltop on some day in 2048. The title of this section is Future Speculation, not Future Dogmatism. As a conceptual framework, this view provides a kind of backdrop against which we can arrange various furniture to see how it makes the room look. If the first four seals (four horsemen of the Apocalypse) represent the period of time beginning with the formation of the British Empire (from about 1534 AD), followed by the rise of communism, central banking and Islamofascism, culminating in the devastating genocides and ultimate defeat of the axis forces in WWII, then the fifth seal represents the present 70 year three score and ten discussed previously, extending from the birth of the nation Israel in 1948 to 2018. Why do I say that? Lets look at the fifth seal: 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: 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? 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. Rev 6:9-11 KJV In view under the altar are the souls of those that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony that they held. Are these those that were slain in the pogroms, genocides and barbarous militarist assaults of the Hirohito, Stalin and Hitlers regimes? These cry for vengeance, but are told to wait until their fellowservants also and their brethren that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. In other words, the atrocities of the four world-domination ideologies will be felt throughout the period appointed through the time of the fifth seal as well. And we have experienced just that. Mao Tse Tung killed millions, as did Pol Pot in Cambodia, the Hutus in Rwanda likewise, North Korea, Lebanon, Darfur Sudan, the killing of Christians and Jews (and many others) has not ceased to the present day. But when the sixth seal is broken things change materially. Because the sixth seal has very distinct fulfillments, we can be certain it has not yet been opened. I know of a certainty that I cannot prophetically predict future events. Looking back in time and identifying fulfillment of prophecy is very different than guessing how future prophecy will be fulfilled, so lets look at the words of Yahshua. Matt 24: 29-30a says 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: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven What exactly will the sign of the Son of man be? Might it be the same pattern we see in the throne of Yahweh as presented in Ezekiel and Revelation? I think it will be.

67

This passage parallels Rev. 6:12-16 stars falling to the earth may be due to earth passing through an intense asteroid shower (since the Greek word translated stars is the word asteros). The sun throws off whats known as a solar storm every day. The earths magnetic field protects us from the radiation of this solar storm, but out in space, it would shred an unprotected object and scatter its debris onto the earth. A comet coming between the earth and the sun would be shredded by the solar storm and the debris would fall to the earth. A comet or some other heavenly body traversing through our solar system could conceivably eclipse the sun if it were large enough. Matt 24:29 tells us the powers of the heavens shall be shaken, suggesting that there may be other forces involved, possibly an electromagnetic or gravitational field of a large celestial body. Such a force might exert considerable influence on earths tectonic plates fulfilling Revelation 6:14 which says that every mountain and island were moved out of their place. A strong enough electro-magnetic field could also have an effect similar to a pulse weapon, rendering all unshielded digital equipment useless. Rev 6:12 says there will be a great earthquake, so I purchased earthquake insurance and I recommend you do the same. It says men are going to be so afraid that they, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains for fear of what will be ahead. Are the dens of the mountains an allusion to the literally thousands of underground shelters, tunnels and bunkers that exist in the world? I dont know, but I do recommend you fall on the rock now before it falls on you and grinds you to powder (Matt 21:44). It could be that this worldwide earthquake collapses all underground shelters, is this why the passage says theyll hide in both dens and rocks of the mountains? Nothing is certain at this point; absolute clarity can only exist after it comes to pass. I cant comment definitively on these things because I only know that it will take place, I have no idea how it will take place. We are called to recognize the signs of the times and it is to that purpose this book was written. And though were not expected to know the future, we are called to know the one who holds the future. Being held in the hand of Yahshua, who, in turn, is in the hand of Yahweh, is a great comfort in these last days as we approach the end of the age. As you are now aware, Yahwehs Word has an orderly arrangement, and that order is parallel to the pattern of His throne in heaven. Yahweh appointed the ages and knows the end from the beginning. None of us are spectators; were all passing across the stage in this third act. The curtain will be closing soon so the fourth and final act can begin, so choose the part you play wisely as some parts get cut before the climactic final act begins. When will it begin? Lets explore some possibilities knowing were dealing with future events and blind speculation. Contemporary eschatology has all of Revelation play out in 7 years. Obviously the views I embrace differ markedly from this status quo. If 2048 marks the return of Yahshua parallel to the birth of Isaac 2,048 years after the first Adam, then the sixth seal, all seven trumpets, the seven thunders as well as the seven vials all occur between now and 2048. Lets see if we can take this further, but before we do well need to deal with one question: When will the first resurrection (aka rapture) take place? At the last trump, of course, but when will that be? Heres what Gods Word says in Matt 24:31 & 36:

68

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. . . . . . But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Does it make sense for us to try to pinpoint the day and hour? No, I believe it would be a futile gesture. But please note that it doesnt say we shouldnt speculate about the signs of the times. Lets recap: As we have seen in the seals, those who invest themselves in Adams rebellion against the righteousness of Yahwehs commands have been given the stage to perpetrate their idea of a world order with complete disregard for the influence of Yahweh, mans rightful sovereign, or His written word. At the time of this writing in the year 2011, it would appear theyve made a complete mess of things. The trumpets may possibly be vengeance from Yahweh specifically upon or against those who oppose or oppress the descendants of Isaac and the nation Israel. More on this in a moment. The sixth trumpet is fascinating as it introduces the seven thunders. To take this paradigm one step further, if the seals feature the house of Adam and the trumpets the house of Israel, then the thunders feature the gentile church. Unfortunately the thunders are shrouded in mystery. The prophet John began to write what the thunders uttered, but the angel told him to seal up what the thunders are all about. I believe that is because their fulfillment occurs in heaven against the rebellion of Lucifer, (aka Satan) and Ill tell you why. The promises to Israel pertain to the land of promise and a status before Yahweh upon the earth. (Dont take this to mean Jews dont go to heaven, numerous passages refer to faithful Jews being gathered to their fathers. Yahshua himself spoke about Lazarus being in Abrahams bosom and he refuted the Sadducees in Mark 12:26-27 saying: Have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. Implying that their lives continued after death). By contrast, the promises to the church are heavenly, as is our heritage and standing as being born from above and citizens of heaven as reflected in the imagery of the eagle. Thus, I believe that the thunders in the sixth trumpet are merely announced in the sixth trumpet, as the very next event is the seventh or last trump when the church is resurrected from off the earth. The fulfillment of the seven thunders may occur in heaven either prior to, or concurrent with the final seven vials that take place upon the earth. The church, in concept, is a resistance force behind enemy lines loyal to the King in exile (you do remember that we are his assault force equipped to do battle against the gates of hell). Once the King is restored to his rightful Kingdom, the resistance force is gathered to follow their king. Revelation 11:15 (the last trump) triggers this gathering as it says the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ. This is more often than not referred to as the rapture or the first resurrection, but this is NOT the point at which Emmanuel returns to reign upon the earth. When will the resurrection of the church take place? Lets take the parallel to Abraham further and see where it leads. Gen 12:4&7 gives Abrams age when he first set foot into the land of promise. Here it is for your review:

69

4 Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran . . . . 7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: If the period of the fifth seal extends to 2018, its reasonable that the events of the sixth seal follow immediately afterward. As we discussed, the events of the sixth seal are unmistakable. There is nothing in the text about how long the very distinct fulfillments of the sixth seal take to be fulfilled! If, however, the trumpets of Joshua parallel the trumpets of Revelation, then they didnt sound until after they entered the Promised Land. Abraham was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran to enter the Promised Land. If this event parallels the sounding of the trumpets in Revelation, then it could occur in 2023, 75 years after 1948. Thus, the events of the sixth seal may take the 5 years from 2018 to 2023 to come to pass. I do believe that the sixth seal marks the end of the period of time appointed to the house of Adam. What follows is the vengeance of Yahweh in the trumpets as previously stated. If the trumpets take five years from 2018 to 2023, will the nation Israel enter into the land of promise, that is, into the fulfillment of the promises given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when the nation is 75 years old in the year 2023? Maybe . . . maybe not! I do, however like the symbolism of the parallel that Abram left Haran and crossed the river to enter the land when he was 75 years old. At some point before the end of the age, the nation Israel has to cross the river from fulfilling the symbolism of Isaac, who was faithful unto death like the sacrificial ox, to arrive at their appointed place at the right hand of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah who will vanquish the usurpers (the Jericho parallel) and rule with a rod of iron for the final 1,000 years appointed to this earth; the final ten of the three-score and ten centuries appointed to this creation. Crossing the river has other implications as well, particularly the Gilgal model. When the children of Israel followed Moses out of Egypt to go to the Promised Land, Moses didnt lead them all the way into the Promised Land, it was at the bank of the river where the leadership was transferred to Joshua. By the way, Joshua, Jesus and Yahshua are all the same name, just transliterated differently. It was after the nation Israel crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land that those born in the wilderness were circumcised and they magnified Yahshua (Joshua) who then led them to vanquish the usurpers and occupy the Promised Land. It is in the sixth seal that twelve thousand from each of the twelve tribes are sealed, lending this view additional credibility. You will notice, however, that Dan is missing from among the twelve tribes sealed. Why? Because the eagle is the symbol on the standard of Dan. The eagle is the symbol of the gentile church, and the church doesnt remain upon the earth once the final angel sounds his trumpet, so it doesnt need to be sealed to be protected against the wrath of Yahweh. Are Jews descended from the tribe of Dan not sealed for protection from the wrath of Yahweh? Rev 7:4 says, there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Are the Jews of the tribe of Dan among all the tribes of Israel? Yes they are. Are they, therefore, sealed against the wrath of Yahweh? According to this verse they are. Just because my feeble brain cant reconcile this discrepancy doesnt mean Yahweh cant fulfill his Word. I know Im missing something here, when it comes to pass we can look back and say Oh, look, so thats how it happened!

70

Also in the sixth seal an innumerable multitude in heaven are revealed. These are identified as having come out of great tribulation. My view is that this Great Tribulation includes all the atrocities in the earth perpetrated by the four horsemen of the Apocalypse all the way to the end of the fifth seal, or 2018 AD when the seventy years last days of Israel are fulfilled. Many Christians remind me that were not appointed unto wrath, and that is correct. But it was Yahshua himself in John 16:33 who assured us that In the world ye shall have tribulation . . . Its not until after the rapture at the seventh and last trump that the wrath of God is poured out upon the world. The seventh seal initiates the seven trumpets, conceptually parallel to the seven trumpets in the book of Joshua. Following the trumpets (and the rapture of the church) comes seven vials of wrath. Christs first coming may have occupied 33 years between the first two epochs and the final two epochs appointed to this earth. In other words, the span of his lifetime was parenthetical, the third epoch appointed to the church age may not have begun until 34-AD. This would push the end of the 2,000-year church age out to 2034 AD. If youre thinking Christ was 33 years old when he was crucified, youre right! But since he was born in 1 AD, he was 1 year old in year 2, and 33 years old in year 34. I find it fascinating that it was in the year 1534 AD that Henry VIII (who began what became the Church of England) usurped land and money from the Roman Catholic Church. Does this demarcate the beginning of the first horseman of the Apocalypse; the white horse? Is this the final one fourth (500 years) of the 2,000-year gentile church age? If it is, then 2034 may be the year of the resurrection of the church. If this is correct, then 2034 would also be the last trump, the final of Revelations seven trumpet judgments. This is all theory and talk is cheap. The Bible says no man knows the day or the hour . . . so Im not adamantly invested in this mind exercise. Whether youre dismissing my theory as heresy or embracing it as brilliant, you should know that I might change my mind tomorrow! Im not doctrinally invested in this viewpoint; its just an exercise. But I do like this because it compliments another parallel to Abrahams life. Abraham was 87 when Ishmael was born (Ishmael was 13 years old when Isaac was born, so subtract 13 from 100). 87 years after 1948 AD brings us to the year 2035. Ishmael was Sarah & Abrahams attempt to fulfill Yahwehs promise that Abraham would have a son. In other words, Ishmael was an exercise in disbelief. He was a selffulfilling prophecy, as it were. Will the one the Bible calls antichrist arise in 2035AD parallel to the birth of Ishmael? Maybe, maybe not! If the last trump triggers the rapture of the church, then the vials of wrath in the seven vials may coincide with the revealing of antichrist. Since the future is a puzzle, and we wont have all the pieces until the events have come to pass, we cant be certain. But I like how these pieces fit together. This brings us to my somewhat unique view on the wonder in heaven that follows the sounding of the seventh trumpet. I was going to end my rant without delving into this, but since were exploring ideas from a solely speculative perspective, it seems the appropriate setting in which to touch on this as well. The wonder in heaven begins in Rev 12:1. Some maintain that this wonder depicts an overview of events both historical as well as future. Can we predict future events with any certainty from such imagery? I certainly cannot, and I have not pretended otherwise. I believe its important

71

to be careful not to be dogmatic in ascribing specific events to future prophecies, especially those heavily laden in symbolism such as these in the book of Revelation. The danger is that we become invested in our viewpoint and miss the proper interpretation when it comes to pass and doesnt fit our expectations. Isnt that what happened when Yahshua entered history in the center of the four ages appointed to this creation? The religious leaders of the day were looking for a messiah to come and vanquish Rome and Rule sitting upon the throne of David. Many Christians writers have predicted in great detail what the future holds based on prophetic passages, and though they may have been financially successful selling books, these books are either oft-revised, or soon forgotten. Were so quick to adopt labels to categorize and pigeonhole ourselves and others. Is it so important whether or not someone is pre/a/post-millennial or pre/a/posttribulation? For years Ive identified myself as pan-trib, because I intend to simply wait and see how everything pans out. So, just for interest sake, lets consider the wonder in heaven vision. You have, no doubt, heard of the Zodiac. The concept of the houses of the Zodiac so permeates ancient writings, that it is a forgone conclusion that it pre-dates them all. This word is not found in the Bible. The Hebrew word Mazzaroth (meaning chambers, divisions or sections), however, is (though in modern astrology it only pertains to the twelve southern constellations). I believe that, prior to the flood of Noah, there was a particulate ice canopy that surrounded the earth. I believe it was held in place as a result of the Misner effect, that is, that water, or ice in crystalline form, responds to a magnetic field, and that ice can be suspended magnetically, and I believe it was held in suspension by the earths magnetic field. It was probably an effective shield against the harmful radiation from the sun. This may be one of the reasons ante-deluvian people enjoyed life spans averaging 911 years. Before we continue, lets take a quick look at Gen 1:14. Here Moses tells us that God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: The lights in the firmament of heaven were, among other things, for signs! I believe that the ice shield had an effect similar to a prism. I believe the light of the stars and galaxies in the heavens were refracted into the various bands of color according to the color and intensity of each individual star. Being that Elohim placed the stars and galaxies in the heavens, I believe he placed them strategically so that the refracted colors of the individual stars in the night sky melded into a pictorial canopy from one end of the heaven to the other. As the earth revolved, one could view in pictures the signs God placed in the sky for us to see, and they were clearly those scenes that God intended when he created them. I believe these scenes depicted the plan of God for the ages. Even in the corrupted Zodiac, we have Virgo the virgin, Leo the Lion, Taurus the ox, Aquarius depicts one from whom flows water. Other constellations regale us with legends of serpents being crushed in the head, eagles and dragons and other symbolically relevant pictures. Further, I subscribe to the Hovind Theory that a comet crashed through our solar system leaving the rings around Saturn, numerous craters on the moon (predominantly on one side) and instantly freezing mammoths on the surface of the earth at temperatures possibly colder than 300 degrees below zero. Part of this comet destroyed earths ice canopy as its debris was flung throughout our solar system

72

After the canopy collapsed, falling upon the earth in the form of 40 days of rain, only Noah and his family were preserved. Every magnet declines in magnetism over time. Once this ice canopy was collapsed, the fact that the earths magnetic field didnt re-establish it indicates that either the field was no longer strong enough to support another canopy or some other unknown factor(s) prevented it. Now stars and galaxies appear as nothing more than bright dots in a dark sky, and any legends of the pictures that had adorned the heavens have been corrupted into the ungodly study we know today as astrology, and the legend of any depiction of scenes into the signs of the zodiac. That the stars predict the future is today a remnant of that knowledge from before the flood when the constellations were signs of things to come. At the end of this age following the sounding of the seventh trumpet when the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord, it may be that at that moment the earth will be restored and a regenerated magnetic field will once again be capable of re-forming the ice-canopy. Through these 4,300 years the earths position relative to the stars has changed significantly. The wonder John sees in heaven in Rev 12:1 could be the images that will adorn the night sky after the ice canopy is restored as Yahweh provides us a pictorial legacy in the heavens to remind us that He knows the end from the beginning and His purposes will ultimately come to pass. Equilibrium restored; the one who is the way, the truth and the life taking His rightful place throughout the ages to come, for only he is worthy. The wonder John sees is a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. Bible expositors almost universally agree the woman is Israel. Is she seen here as being clothed in the light of truth after having conquered Islam (the moon under her feet) and having a crown of twelve stars, (representing the spiritual descendants of Yahshua, the gentile church), adorning her head? Its future, so your interpretation of the symbolism is as good as mine. But as I previously cautioned, the interpretation of future events involves imperfect speculation (unless you are a true prophet). So Im sure your own eschatological views differ from my own, and the next 37 years will test them all. Until that time, I would like to think that this book has blazed trails where none have trod before. What youve read may be as clear as mud. It might be of some benefit to go over it again with Bible in hand to allow the scriptures themselves to enlighten your comprehension. Context does always enhance understanding. Besides, Paul commended the Bereans for searching the scriptures daily to confirm that what he was preaching was in alignment with the Word of Yahweh. To embrace the truth is to have a part in that Kingdom Age. To embrace the lie is to be dispatched from the earth when the final curtain falls on this age. Yahshua said: I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. Matt 26:29 KJV In that day perhaps the Lord will lift his cup and say L'Chaim To Life as the righteous of Isaac and Yahshua take their respective positions in the living age, the final of seven millennium appointed to this creation. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and

with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Isa 9:7

THE END
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yahweh, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Eccl 12:13 Sanctify the Lord Yahweh in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. 1 Peter 3:15 There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against Yahweh. Prov 21:30 be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph 6:10 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. Isa 54:17 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but the victory belongs to the LORD. Prov. 21:31 6:10 For Yahweh shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Eccl 12:14 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left Isa 24:5-6 And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust Isa 25:12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. Isa 24:12

Dont fear the gates of hell. Equip yourself so those who defend the gates of hell fear you!

In most cases, I have retained the words and syntax of the King James scripture references as they appear. On occasion, and only after careful study, a word is changed in order to reveal a more accurate rendering. The Holy name of God, Yahweh, is utilized throughout. Likewise, the anglicized Jesus is replaced with Yahshua. If this offends you, know that I am offended by anyone who would omit the name of God and use an indistinct substitute, thus, I have inserting the names Yahweh and Yahshua though these spellings do not appear in the KJV. 8.
