It’s been a long time since I last posted anything here. I’ve been busy though.
It amazes me that I still have a blog to post to. Wordpress is patient.
I see that the format for creating posts has changed and I’m going to have to explore to understand the changes. I don’t have anything new, but I do have a major change to one of my pages that I need to make… if the page is still there?
The change concerns my Jesus page. The change won’t appear today due to my concern over what I think is WordPress policy concerning posts. I believe they consider the post to be theirs after it’s actually posted. I can’t let that happen to this document, but I do want to post it here as long as I can retain ownership/copyright. I’ve got to do some research about this?
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to the blog world again. I may become active again?
I decided that this blog should be about teaching the truth. I am going to do my best to keep my essays short and to the point. Hopefully, this will be the longest essay I post from now on.
To me this is the beginning point and everything hinges on what gets disclosed in this essay. If we don’t get this right then nothing else we believe about the Bible or the Tanakh means anything.
First: all English versions of the Bible are translated from the original Hebrew. So, is the Bible the unquestionable word of God or is the Tanakh (Old Testament) the unquestionable word of Yahuah? I believe it’s important for each individual to establish whether the translation is the word of the creator or whether the original Hebrew writings were the words of Yahuah the creator? It’s a matter of faith and each person must answer that question for themselves.
To me, the Bible doesn’t start in the book of Genesis it starts in the book of Exodus. The reason? Every book has an author and that includes the book called the Bible. Almost all books identify the author. It’s in the book of Exodus where the author of the Torah and by extension the Tanakh firmly identifies himself.
Exo 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
Exo 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
See! So now we have the King James version of what was said. I’ll show you what it looks like in Babylonian Hebrew:
Exo 20:1 וידבר אלהים את כל־הדברים האלה לאמר׃
Exo 20:2 אנכי יהוה אלהיך אשׁר הוצאתיך מארץ מצרים מבית עבדים׃
Do you see the bold word in the Hebrew sentence directly above this? That’s a proper name. Its proper pronunciation (in my educated opinion) would be “Yahuah.” There is a big difference In the names found in the English translation and the original Hebrew writings. The English version states that the Lord God is the author of the Bible while the Hebrew version declares that Yahuah Elohecka is the author. Elohecka simply means, “your Elohim (your God). Why is this important?
The words “Lord” and “God” are either titles and not proper names or they are proper names for pagan deities. Our Creator is very particular about his name and how it’s used. I won’t go into that here except to point out the Scriptures where he says he’s particular.
Here is an English version for the reason that this is important:
Exo 20:3 “You have no other mighty ones against My face.
Exo 20:7 “You do not bring the Name of Yahuah your Elohim to naught, for Yahuah does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught. (The Scriptures)
And then there is this:
Joe 2:27 “And you shall know that I am in the midst of Yisra’ĕl, and that I am Yahuah your Elohim and there is no one else. And My people shall never be put to shame. (The Scriptures)
It’s even acknowledged in the New Testament that there is only one name that we can use by which we can be saved:
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
If there is only one name then which one is it? We had better get this one right or we have a problem. We can’t claim ignorance anymore if we’ve heard the truth and reject it. We have to study to show ourselves approved.
You can argue with me and my logic but you can’t argue with what’s written especially with what was written in the original language in the Tanakh. I realize that I didn’t include anything about Jesus or Yahusha here. I did that on purpose. The only one relevant here in this discussion is Yahuah. Call on Yahuah if you want salvation and he’ll dispatch his son Yahusha the Mashiach to save you.
What’s the bottom line? If we call on anything or anyone other than Yahuah then we are calling out the wrong name and on the wrong deity. Doing so will get us nowhere. We’ll probably hear this from our Creator, “depart from me… I never knew you!” If you don’t have enough courtesy to call your creator by his proper name then he probably won’t acknowledge you either.
I received a notification by email the other day that said that my student loan payments were going to go up to $443 per month but that I may re-qualify for a lower payment plan based on my income. I did not file a tax return for last year and I could lie about my income if I wanted to. I have to admit that I don’t want to pay these people any more than I have to. I know that my payment will be more than what I pay now, which is $0.00 per month, if I don’t lie, but I decided that I would rather pay more than lie about it.
You see, there are other things at stake here. The Scriptures plainly say that all liars will find their part in the lake that burns with fire. Well, I certainly don’t want to end up there so I decided the best thing to do is to tell the truth. Money is important in this life but, it certainly won’t be in the next. We won’t have to worry about the next life if we don’t make it there. There is a whole list of offenses that will get you thrown into the lake that burns with fire.
I’ve already touched on the subject but, it’s worth touching on again: most people pay lip service to believing what it says in the Scriptures. What they do, if they don’t like what they read, is change or twist what they believe the Scriptures should say. They do this in order to obfuscate issues in order to make themselves feel better. However, they don’t stop there.
I can’t prove this but, I believe that they don’t truly believe in Yahuah so they don’t have a problem teaching concepts that are contrary to what it says in the Scriptures. They teach their twisted ideas to others, including their children, not knowing that doing so will lead to their destruction. Why else would they teach such stuff if they were true believers?
I would like to believe that I am a true believer so I choose not to lie about my income. You see, we get a lot of opportunities to prove that we can indeed learn. If we can’t learn and change and override our basic instincts then we are defective. Yahuah will not allow defective individuals into his kingdom. That’s why he made us mortal: so that if we prove to be defective we can simply be eliminated. This isn’t cruel; it’s necessary. He has no intention of torturing those who prove to be defective he just plans on eliminating them.
I know that if I published this essay that I will undoubtedly come under fire for what I’m going to say next: homosexuals, liars, thieves, murderers, adulterers, people who practice bestiality, those who engage in incest and those that worship false the Elohim will find themselves burning in the lake that burns with fire if they can’t change. They will have proven themselves to be unredeemable.
The world is full! There are few, including those who claim to be true believers, who are willing to follow the rules. The reason? The rules go against what they desire for their life. They engage in the activities listed above or others and they have no intention of stopping.
I have to admit that there are those who claim to be true believers who follow Christianity or other religions who, when shown the truth about the things that they believe, find themselves unwilling to make changes. They do a very good job of towing the line according to what they’ve been taught but, they don’t want to stop worshiping false Elohim. I will be fair: it took me a long time to understand how important using the true name of our Creator is. It took me many years before I made a change. However, change I did because the seed finally sprouted and bore fruit. Now I share this information with as many as I can. I doubt that there have been very many who have changed because of what I’ve told them.
I’ve even tried to spur them to look the truth up for themselves however, some want to believe that the English translation is the only version to believe in… Especially the King James version of the Bible. If pushed, they will admit that the King James version is a translation but, they believe that the translation is the inspired work and not the original version. So, on and on it goes. The lies are passed down from one generation. Occasionally, an exception appears, and someone in the lineup makes a change. It’s these people who make changes now that I believe are being called for a future important purpose.
Those who are being called now, if chosen, are to be the future rulers and priests in the coming kingdom. It will be their job to teach the people how to keep Torah. They’ll do this for 1000 years without the interference from ha-Satan. Then, after 1000 years, ha Satan will be loosed one more time to see who will prove to be defective and who won’t be.
What I’m praying for is: that the vast majority of people will prove to be redeemable. I know that there will be some who will choose to end it all. I believe that it is those who will choose to end it all who were chosen to be used as a tool to test the world. They will have no desire to enter into the kingdom.
How many out there have problems with cavities in their teeth please raise your hands. Now, how many of you would like to fix those problems? Hmm…I thought so…everyone would. Well, I’m here to tell you that IT IS possible to fix most of those dental caries without going to your dentist. How do I know?
I’m living proof that the system I’m about to describe works, but first a little background is in order. I’ve been actively pursuing ways to achieve optimum health for more than twenty five years and it’s been a long tough road with many detours and distractions along the way. I’ve experienced six tooth extractions, two crowns and five mercury amalgam fillings over the years. My mouth was and still is a disaster area. If only FEMA could step in with some funding for the problems I could do everything I need to permanently fix all of the bad results from years of neglect and abuse. Before you can fix problems you must know their root cause.
There is, for the most part, one root cause for poor dental hygiene: MALNUTRITION!
That’s correct, we don’t eat enough of the correct foods to promote a healthy mouth. Our problems with dental caries stems from a poor diet that is devoid of the nutrients necessary for healthy teeth. And just so you know: tooth decay IS NOT THE RESULT OF BACTERIA! How could that be? Lets first consider how a tooth is designed.
A tooth has many parts:
and a Crown
Most of us know these parts but there is at least one other part that most of us aren’t familiar with: Dentinal Tubules. There are about three miles of them in each tooth and they range in size from 1.3 – 4.5 microns. These little tubes go from the heart of the tooth to the surface. What are they for?
If you are like me then you may erroneously believe that a tooth is a static part of the body that starts out whole and eventually over years wears out. To deny this seems ludicrous in light of what commonly occurs as we age. But, if this were true then why should a tooth have a blood supply and nerves? This last question is one that has popped up with me from time to time but wasn’t something that I felt compelled to do research on. That is, not until I had a problem that needed fixed.
I was blissfully eating a salad and was crunching down on a raw carrot when the carrot broke through the crown, enamel(rotted), and partially decayed dentin to finally impinge on the blood vessels and nerves in that tooth. Needless to say this brought on instantaneous and exquisite pain. I dug the offending food bit from the tooth that was now screaming bloody murder at me. This was the beginning of at least two weeks of high level pain for me. I couldn’t go to the dentist as I couldn’t afford it. I finally located a discount dentist that x rayed my entire mouth and pronounced that I needed to have a root canal done on that tooth. The cost was out of the question even with his reduced prices. He also declared that the tooth was dead since it wasn’t bothering me at the time( I had eliminated all of the sweet foods my sister-in-law was feeding me). I briefly considered having him pull the tooth as a less expensive approach to my problem but this would create additional chewing problems for me. This sent me on a search to discover if there was a way to save this tooth naturally. I found what I was looking for and also found out what all of those miles of microscopic tubes were for.
Those little tubes carry nutrients necessary for the rebuilding of the tooth structure from the blood supply of the tooth to its surface so that the tooth can be re- mineralized. I also found out that the tooth can’t be re-mineralized if the hormone system is out of whack leaving the tooth to fend for itself against the onslaught of acids and mechanical wear. This hormonal system is comprised of the parotid glands that are regulated by the hyp0thalamus in the brain. So, when we develop cavities it’s because our hormone system is shut down due to poor diet and not due to bacteria. If you think about it this is another extreme way our body has for talking to us. We’ve ignored a host of other complaints from our body until it finally gets our attention some other way. So what do we do?
We have to suck it up and change our diets. It’s that simple. I found that, at least for a time, I needed to include fat soluble vitamins in my diet and minerals from sources I’ve come to shun. I believe these nutrients have vegetable sources but for now I’ve included things like fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil in my diet. I’ve also included stock made from soup bones that contains marrow. I’ve also eliminated potatoes and tomatoes from my diet and grains that aren’t properly prepared. Why grains?
It’s my opinion that we, like cows, weren’t meant to eat a diet high in grains. Grains are the seed of a new plant which can’t survive as a species if we eat all of it’s seed. Grains contain anti-nutrients that block the absorption of the nutrients contained in the seed that are needed by the developing plant. I believe this is part of a defense system for the plant species. When we suffer from nutrient deprivation we begin to develop physiological problems that make us feel bad. This is our body talking to us that lets us know that we need a dietary change. It’s at this point that we run to the doctor so that he or she can prescribe some kind of a medicine to block the symptoms we’ve developed. So, the only way to get at those nutrients in the seed is through special processing that eliminates those anti-nutrients. These aren’t difficult to do, but they are time consuming and time seems to be one of the things we are short on. So, I’ll include some sources for you at the end so that you can begin your journey toward mouth health.
By the way, that tooth has begun to re-mineralize and no longer causes me pain. The remaining dentin has begun to become hard and no longer is tender when I have to pick something out of that fissure. It’s a big one and one that I’ve been informed will never fill in. I have been informed that the cavity may develop a shield of enamel to protect what remains of the tooth. I can then have the hole filled by a dentist who can put a no drill filling made up of certain composites(not mercury) there to further protect the tooth. I don’t consider this as a final answer to my problem.
Ok, here goes some sources where you can begin to find information: The Healthy Home Economist and “Cure Tooth Decay Heal & Prevent Cavities With Nutrition” by Ramiel Nagal.
Now here’s the tough part: most people WILL NOT do anything for themselves. They’d rather leave their problems to someone else to solve. That’s when it gets expensive both in monetary value and in health issues.
I’m going to be harsh here. What I’m describing is the real world we live in and I’ll make my point now so you don’t have to read the rest of this: we are rotting on the inside and trying to mask it by covering ourselves with cosmetics, lotions and cremes, fancy clothing and expensive medicines and surgery to cover up our ill health. It’s disgusting.
We pat ourselves on the back when we answer a questionnaire about our lifestyles that declares that we’ll live to be 97 years old. Yet, what that questionnaire won’t tell us is that we’ll have to rely on the doctor to get us there by swallowing their sorcery while they carve away pounds of rotting flesh. Living a life in pain for thirty years while being unable to take care of ourselves isn’t living. Is living this way really necessary?
Achieving abundant health can be very difficult. Why? Because we live in a society that has discarded it’s foundation. The foundation that we’ve discarded is the one that is natural and that we evolved or were created in. It’s the foundation that we are told is outdated that will lead us to ill health. Our society has led us to believe that we must rely on those who pose as authorities of the state, that is those that have been licensed by the state, to tell us how to achieve something that they know little about.
Our society is so removed from it’s foundation that too many of us have never eaten something fresh from the garden. The food we eat comes from giant collective farms where the animals are raised in cages and fed foods in quantities that are alien to their physiology. Cattle are fed grains and waste products from other food manufacturing processes and never see a pasture let alone a blade of grass that they were created to exist off of. Chickens are raised in houses containing multiple tens of thousands of other chickens in a choking atmosphere of ammonia fed on a “vegetarian” diet of processed grains that in no way resembles the foods they were designed to eat. You’d be amazed at what a real free range chicken will eat and it won’t all be vegetable. None of these animals would ever mature to their natural age on these diets, but it’s not necessary for them to do so because they quickly go to slaughter where we the people consume their corrupted flesh. And the vegetables?
The vegetables we eat are genetically modified and come from more of these industrialized giant farms and are bathed in a host of poisons they are designed to tolerate. These genetically modified vegetables are toxic in their own right and are nothing that our bodies know fully what to do with. Add to that the fact that they are picked and processed long before they have matured in their natural state then shipped for many days to distant locations where they sit on a shelf for many more days until almost all of the nutrition has long evaporated from them. Then we eat all of these things and get sick.
Now that we’re sick we go to the doctor and demand that they make us better. But, what do they do? They prescribe more toxic chemicals that further assaults our physiology. We are then prescribed more potent poisons to offset the harmful side effects of the previous poisons and when we develop other severe problems we are told that we must suffer at the hands of the butcher for relief. The butchers hack and gut and carve away our flesh then prescribe even more poisons when they are done doing that. All of these butchers are all too glad to take your currency, or anybodies currencies for that matter, so that they can live a life of ease. But, I seriously doubt that the lives these butchers lead are really that wonderful. After all, they suffer from the same problems the rest of us do: extreme ignorance.
A man was sent to us, well in fact many men have been sent, but I’m only going to focus on this one in particular, who warned the people of his day about all of this. We get his warnings through the fog of time. Here’s one of his warnings:
Mat 23:25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are filled with plunder and unrighteousness.
Mat 23:26 “Blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and dish, so that the outside of them becomes clean too.
Mat 23:27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you are like whitewashed tombs which outwardly indeed look well, but inside are filled with dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
Mat 23:28 “So you too outwardly indeed appear righteous to men, but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness.1 Footnote:1See 5:20.
Mat 23:29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous,
Mat 23:30 and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in the blood of the prophets.’
Mat 23:31 “Thus you bear witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who did murder the prophets –
Mat 23:32 and you fill up the measure of your fathers!
Mat 23:33 “Serpents, brood of adders! How would you escape the judgment of Gehenna?
These modern authorities are the same scribes and pharisees from His brief time in the flesh on this earth. They look good on the outside, but are foul and putrid on the inside. Oh, I’ll admit that there are many of these authorities who have the best of intentions and are misled by the scribes and pharisees who trained them, but this doesn’t mean that they aren’t rotten and putrid on the inside also.
So, I’ll ask you a question: would you like to be cured of your disease without the poisons and butchering that we are led to believe in? I’ll say that the vast majority of us are too fearful to rely on anything other than what we were raised to believing in. What if something else doesn’t work? Will we have passed the point of no return? How do we know that those who promote other alternatives to poison and butchering aren’t wolves in sheep’s clothing? See what I mean: too far removed.
Most of us are just as foul and putrid on the inside as these modern scribes and pharisees are. We bath daily and then slather toxic cremes and lotions all over our bodies to cover up the foul stench that emanates from our rotting flesh. We run to the dentist to drill and gouge out our rotting teeth that are nothing more than one of the many signs of our sick perverted life style.
We’d rather sit at the computer than we would go tend a garden. Who has time. After all, when it’s all said and done with we’d only plant those GMO’s then bathe them in poison anyway. Or we’ll raise our chickens in structures and feed then the same sick diet that the ones from the store are fed on. We’ll get sick anyway.
Even when we are willing to try something we are often unwilling to follow the complete protocol then we blame our failure on something that might have worked if we had only been honest and persevered to our goal. We’ll say something like this: “oh, I tried that and it didn’t work.” But, even if the protocol was bogus we often decide to forgo any other natural options because of our one failure. No, most of us are out for the quick and easy fix: let the doctor fix me.
Then, all too often we are unwilling to do something because it’ll set us apart from our friends and families. We would become outcasts who are considered lunatics and malcontents so we allow others to lure us back to their sick perverted ways. What’s really sad is that we perpetrate this lifestyle on young helpless victims who are our children who then grow up to get even farther off the foundation. However, it won’t be you that is a lunatic when you succeed at becoming healthy it’ll be your friends and family who are crazy.
Will this rant actually help someone? Only the master of the universe יהוה knows. I’ve only written what came from my heart. So!
Do you want healed of your cancer and other diseases? Take the hint from the future king of this world: clean the inside of your vessel first. Clean it with good food from good sources. Do what is difficult at first that becomes easier with time. Resist the pull of your friends and family go go along with them to their destruction.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins , and lest you receive of her plagues(self inflicted sicknesses, illnesses and diseases) .1 Footnote: 1Jer. 51:6 & 45.
Jer 51:6 2Flee from the midst of Baḇel1, and let each one save his life! Do not be cut off in her crookedness, for this is the time of the vengeance of יהוה, the recompense He is repaying her. Footnote: 1Rev. 18:4.
Jer 51:7 Baḇel was a golden cup in the hand of יהוה, making drunk all the earth1. The nations drank her wine, that is why the nations went mad! Footnote: 1Rev. 17:1-18.
Jer 51:45 “Come out1 of her midst, My people! And let everyone deliver his being from the burning displeasure of יהוה. Footnote: 1Rev. 18:4. Emphasis mine
What’s so special about Tomorrow? Well, that depends on who you are. If you’re a Christian you’ll remember it as Pentecost. If you are a practicing B’nai Yisrael then it is the day we received the Torah of יהוה at Mount Sinai. What difference does it make? That also depends on who you are.
If you’re a Christian you’ll remember it as the day that the followers of Jesus Christ received the Holy Spirit and that 3000 new converts were added to the new church. But, then that’s all it’s going to mean to you because the average Christian doesn’t place any more significance to this special day. After all, it’s not something that is commanded of them to observe. To most Christians it’s just another day.
To the B’nai Yisrael, and the Jews who are a part of Yisrael, it’s a very special time. It’s the time when they received the Torah of יהוה at Mount Sinai. There is the ritual counting of the Omer where fifty days are counted from the Sabbath after the waving of the wave sheaf offering. You see, the Law of יהוה was what was given to the Children of Yisrael and it brought them life; unlike the laws of man do which brings death. Chag Shavuot is a day of celebration for B’nai Yisrael. It’s also a day that they don’t go to their jobs on. Hey, what a blessing: another day off. But, what’s so special about that?
It’s like this: there was a special blessing that the B’nai Yisrael received from יהוה for obeying his commands. Here’s part of that blessing:
Exo 19:1 In the third month after the children of Yisra’ĕl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, on this day they came to the Wilderness of Sinai.
Exo 19:2 For they set out from Rephiḏim, and had come to the Wilderness of Sinai, and camped in the wilderness. So Yisra’ĕl camped there before the mountain.
Exo 19:3 And Mosheh went up to Elohim, and יהוה called to him from the mountain, saying, “This is what you are to say to the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, and declare to the children of Yisra’ĕl:
Exo 19:4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Mitsrites, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.
Exo 19:5 ‘And now, if you diligently obey My voice, and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be My treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine –
Exo 19:6 ‘and you shall be to Me a reign of priests and a set-apart nation.’ Those are the words which you are to speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl.”
Whoa, I want that! This is also something that is promised in the Brit Chadesha.
Rev 1:5 and from יהושע Messiah, the trustworthy witness, the first-born from the dead, and the ruler of the sovereigns of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
Rev 1:6 and has made us sovereigns and priests to His Elohim and Father, to Him be esteem and rule forever and ever. Amĕn.
Rev 1:7 See, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth shall mourn because of Him. Yes, Amĕn.
Ho, woe be it for those who don’t follow the rules because they will weep when they see the Messiah coming and haven’t kept his Commands. What are the Messiah’s Commands? They are the same ones given the B’nai Yisrael at Sinai. The ones where the B’nai Yisrael are commanded to observe the counting of the Omer and to keep Shavuot a special day forever. Brothers and sisters we don’t want to miss anything…not even the gift of the Ruach haQodesh (holy spirit). Don’t you think that you will receive the gift of the Ruach haQodesh the same as those who were followers of the Messiah did on Pentecost? If your heart is inclined toward your creator then doing what He requires brings blessings with it. You won’t have to weep at the Messiah’s coming you’ll rejoice.
You see, you’ll receive the Ruach haQodesh because you’re heart will be open to it just like those who gathered in Jerusalem did two thousand years ago. That’s what being obedient brings for us. It’ll give you the power you need to keep the Commands of יהוה . Don’t buy into the lie that those commands are outdated and done away with. They aren’t. They were given to B’nai Yisrael to observe forever and guess what…you won’t get in through the gate to the new city if you’re not B’nai Yisreal having one of the names necessary to enter the gate that has your name on it. Do some study and figure out why there are twelve gates with the different names of the twelve tribes of Israel on them.
Come, let’s celebrate together in the New Jerusalem because we have one of those names.
Many times in the past I’ve posted that there are many bad translations in the bible. I also like to point out now that though many of these bad translations were done on purpose, many if not most were done totally out of ignorance.
This ignorance is due to a shift in time and space between when the writings were originally written and when they were translated. The other problem was that the original writer may not have had the technological knowledge to accurately describe what he was writing about and the translator had the same problem thus compounding the matter. Let’s take a look at such a writing.
First, before I do I’d like to give credit where it’s due. The first time I heard about the following story it came from Michael Rood and I don’t know that anyone else has found it. Now to the story.
Zec 5:1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.
Zec 5:2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
Zec 5:3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.
Zec 5:4 I will bring it forth, saith יהוה of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
Zec 5:5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
Zec 5:6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.
Zec 5:7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a womanH802 that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
Zec 5:8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
Zec 5:9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two womenH802, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.
OK, in verse one Zechariah describes a flying roll(scroll, the Hebrew word is megilah) then he gives it’s dimensions. Michael Rood claims that the word translated in the KJV as breadth should be girth or circumference. I’m not sure where he got that from as the word translated into “breadth” seems to mean just that but, then there could be room for error. The description so far is of a tube or cylindrical object that is half as wide as it is long. If Michael is correct that it should be a circumference of 10 cubits then it would be approximately one sixth the width in proportion to its length and if true it would resemble various modern missiles in size.
At any rate we have a flying object, missile shaped or not, that is apparently carrying something in it because the angel reveals what “goeth forth”. In verse seven the angel shows Zechariah some sort of a basket with a lead lid. Inside the basket is what translators describe as a “woman”.
The word for “woman” in Hebrew is:
The first form is the feminine of H376 or H582; the second form is an irregular plural; a woman (used in the same wide sense as H582).: – [adulter]ess, each, every, female, X many, + none, one, + together, wife, woman. Often unexpressed in English.
This is interesting because one of the Hebrew words for “fire” is:
Feminine of H784; fire: – fire.
See, the problem here is that originally there were no written vowels in Hebrew. Even modern Hebrew doesn’t have a vowel system so the letters for woman and fire are the same Hebrew letters: aleph, shin and hay. There is a slight difference in pronunciation between the two words.
So what’s really in the basket flying around that consumes or destroys both timber and stone? Well, if it is a woman then that’s one more BAD woman in my estimation. I believe Michael is correct that what Zachariah is seeing is not a woman but some kind of a fire. It’s interesting that this fire is in a basket that doesn’t burn up and that has to be kept under a lead lid. Doesn’t sound like any normal fire to me. And it’s also fascinating that the delivery vehicle seems to be some kind of cylindrical object that could possibly be some form of modern missile. Now I need to point out the second mentioning of woman or women.
The word used in verse nine is nawshim (pronounced nawsheem) and that does in fact mean “women” which is the plural form of woman meaning more than one woman. In Hebrew, generally all of the words used in a sentence must agree in gender, tense and number with the subject of the sentence. In other words: if the subject is masculine then all of the adjectives and verbs must be in their masculine form. Since the word for fire, eshshah, is feminine then it would be easy for a scribe to say “well, this can’t be correct, two WOMAN isn’t correct so I’ll just correct it and make it two WOMEN (nawshim). It’s possible that the scribes that copied this statement that Zachariah made, into the Tanahh, did so from a previous document that had come from somewhere else? This is just speculation because I feel that the they couldn’t handle two fires with wings flying around so they used the word nawshim to agree in number since there isn’t a plural form of the word ishah for fire. Again this is just speculation on my part.
You see, it was expressly forbidden for anyone to change one tiny part of the Torah and much latter this rule applied to the Tanakh as well. But, the Torah is just the beginning of the Tanakh which is the whole Old Testament (gasp). But generally the messages made to the council by the prophets were recorded and when the prophet proved himself to be true then the prophets messages were put into the Tanakh. Anything could have happened between the time Zachariah delivered his message and the time they were formally included in the writings. Now, once formally included in the writings then the law applied that expressly forbid changing anything.
So, there are just some things we won’t know for the time being. But, I personally believe that Michael Rood’s interpretation is correct: the thing Zachariah saw was a modern nuclear missile.
Time to duck and cover (if you really think that will help)!
I used to consider myself to be a Christian, but I’m proud to announce that I no longer will accept that title. Why? Let’s take a quick (hopefully) look at this title.
One of the first places I went to for the origins of the term “Christianity” was Wikipedia. There is usually some pretty good information there and there was this time also. Here’s a few excerpts from the article found there:
“A Christian ( pronunciation (help·info)) is a person who adheres to Christianity, an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. “Christian” derives from the Koine Greek word Christ, a translation of the Biblical Hebrew term Messiah.”
“Another term for Christians which appears in the New Testament is “Nazarenes” which is used by the Jewish lawyer Tertullus in Acts 24. Tertullian (Against Marcion 4:8) records that “the Jews call us Nazarenes,” while around 331 AD Eusebius records that Christ was called a Nazoraean from the name Nazareth, and that in earlier centuries “Christians,” were once called “Nazarenes.” The Hebrew equivalent of “Nazarenes”, Notzrim, occurs in the Babylonian Talmud, and is still the modern Israeli Hebrew term for Christian.”
Well, so far so good…huh? I want to comment on the first quote: an “Abrahamic monotheistic religion”???? What’s monotheistic about a Trinity? Abraham would roll over in his grave if he knew that his name was associated with this pagan concept. Any way, here’s a link to the article itself: Christianity.
As you can see the original title for a person who followed the Meshiach was Nazarene. If I had to wear a title then this one might not be so bad except for it’s association with the name and religion of Jesus Christ. Why? There is a lengthy explanation for this, but I’ll say this: I adhere to the same belief that Yahoshua the true Meshiach adhered to and not the hybridized pagan belief system called Christianity. A very good book to read to get you started on your lengthy education about Christianity is Lew White’s tenth edition book “Fossilized Customs“. I had read one of his earliest versions many years ago that helped to get me set on the correct path. Anyway, back to Christianity.
I had bought several copies of Lew White’s latest edition to loan out or give away and I started to reread it. It has always been an eyeopener and this time was no exception Lew White asserts that the word Christianity actually comes from the word “cretin” which he said meant “a fool”. There are many implications to the connection between cretin and Christian if true. Well, I know better than to take anyone’s word for a thing and I had to look this up for myself. That’s what took me to Wikipedia. But, sadly even there you won’t find the information about the word Christian or Christianity to make this connection directly so I turned to one of my most favorite sources: Webster’s Dictionary.
Here’s what Webster’s has to say about the word cretin:
Main entry: cretin
Etymology: French cretin, from the French dialect cretin, literally, wretch, innocent victim, from Latin Christianus Christian
1 : one afflicted with cretinism
2 : a stupid, vulgar, or insensitive person : CLOD, LOUT
Well, I didn’t see anything about the word “fool” there, but I didn’t use Lew’s dictionary as a source either. I don’t think Lew White was far from the mark though. It would appear that the word cretin and Christian had their origin in Latin and that it was applied to the followers of Yahoshua because they were fools to follow the future possible king of the kingdom of Parthia, who were major enemies of Rome for hundreds of years, in defiance of the mighty Roman empire. Just my opinion here. What happened between then and now are revealed in Lew White’s book. I’ve done enough study to prove to myself that Christianity today is nothing but pure paganism.
So a word to the wise: don’t be a fool and follow Christian doctrines in defiance of someone far more powerful than Rome: YHWH. He won’t forgive a person who willingly knows and breaks his Torah. Be a follower of Yahoshua and keep Torah.
