The Origins And Empire Of Ancient Israel

THE ORIGINS AND EMPIRE OF ANCIENT ISRAEL

This is Book One of a series of four books that give us a fresh look at the early history of Israel … with special emphasis on the little-known and immensely important events that helped to shape our modern world.  Covers Israelite history from the call of Abraham through the global “Phoenician” Empire of Kings David and Solomon.

Here is the untold story evidence that God’s People visited distant lands in Europe and America in ancient times. The central theme of this book is the biblical Covenant which God made with the Patriarchs and their descendants. This included the biblical promise of numerous descendants who would build powerful wealthy nations. This exciting story is told with the aid of over 100 maps charts and illustrations. The book begins with the call of Abraham and the elements of the unconditional Covenant which God made with the Patriarchs and their descendants. Strong evidence is presented that the real Mt. Horeb on which Moses and the Israelites received the Torah and made a covenant with God is not in Egypt’s Sinai desert but rather in another location identified both in the Bible and by physical evidence existing to this day. The role of the Israelite tribes in the ancient Sea Peoples is shown to parallel accounts about them in the book of Judges. This book then reveals new information about King David the warrior king who united the tribes of Israel made lasting ties with Tyre and Sidon and built an Israelite Empire. This book documents that the Israelites were not only major players in ancient history but actually became the leading powers on earth under Kings David and Solomon. When it is realized that the Israelite tribes had major roles in that time it becomes easier for the reader to understand that the ten tribes have also had major roles in the world’s geopolitics from that time forward.

EXCERPT from Chapter 6, Pages 206-232

PHOENICIAN MARITIME SKILLS
It has long been known that the Phoenicians had the sailing and navigational skills to make long, trans-oceanic voyages to distant continents. The reader may be surprised that this has already been documented by many historians. In 1834, Sir William Betham wrote:

The advancement of the ancients in the science of navigation has been much underrated.”29

The late Dr. Cyrus Gordon was a highly regarded archeologist and historian of modern times. A 1996 issue of the magazine, Biblical Archeologist, contained several articles devoted to his career and his many accomplishments.30 Dr. Gordon wrote the following about the Old World’s awareness of the New World.

The evidence points in the direction of an ancient maritime system of which the Mediterranean was only a part…This is reflected in the Timaeus of Plato, which tells of an…ancient Atlantic Order with interests extending from America into the Mediterranean. It is futile to…forget his plain reference to the continent that seals off the Atlantic Ocean on the West. This continent — which Plato mentions without more ado because it was well known to his reading public — can only be America.”31 (Emphasis added)

The McClintock and Strong Cyclopedia, offers the following information about the navigational skills of the Phoenicians that enabled them to navigate across the oceans.

They steered by the…last star in Ursa Minor; and they could cast reckonings from the combined application of astronomy and arithmetic (Strabo, xvi, 2, 24). This nautical application of astronomy is ascribed by Callimachus to Thales, a Phoenician…”32

Thomas Moore’s History of Ireland, written in 1843, adds:

…at no time, however remote, has the interposition of sea presented much obstacle to the migratory dispositions of mankind…the Phoenicians, with far more knowledge, it is probable, of the art of navigation, than modern assumption gives them credit for, were to be seen in the Mediterranean, the Baltic, the Atlantic, — every where upon the waters.”33

Thomas Johnston’s 1913 book, Did the Phoenicians Discover America?, offers much evidence on the mechanics of Phoenician navigational skills and tools. He begins by saying “the compass…was clearly a Phoenician invention,”34 and adds that the Phoenicians determined suitable sailing seasons by the “rise and setting of the Pleiades.”35 Johnston adds:

Once…steering by a stellar object took…place (which was clearly of Phoenician origin), supplemented by the use of the magnet, which enabled the navigator when the weather was cloudy to determine his position and direction (also, it is equally clear, a Phoenician invention), then the last obstacle to a complete mastery of the sea was removed.”36

Johnston explains that early magnets utilized “loadstones,” which were stones with magnetic properties. These served as compasses by always pointing to magnetic north when suspended or when allowed to float freely in a “water compass.”37 The Phoenicians’ ingenuity was remarkable, as it allowed them to know their ships’ heading and direction, whether it was day or night, clear or cloudy. This ability would allow them to not only cross the oceans with confidence, but maintain reasonably-fixed sailing schedules, an important aspect to the commercially-minded Phoenicians. Dr. Barry Fell commented on the Phoenicians’ regular sailing schedules to ancient America, as noted earlier.

The reader might justifiably wonder at this point, given the extensive evidence of Old World civilizations in ancient America, why America’s history books have not been updated with this new information. The reason is, unfortunately, that the modern academic establishment as a whole is in a state of denial regarding these discoveries because the facts overthrow “established” theories.

Dr. Fell noted that some archaeologists were so deeply in denial about the realities of ancient America that they tried to dismiss clearly readable ancient inscriptions as “accidental markings made by plowshares and roots of trees…(and) colonial stone cutting drills.”38 Ancient American dolmens, megalithic monuments consisting of a large slab stone positioned atop smaller supporting stones, have been found in New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts, which parallel Old World dolmens. These locations are all near the ancient Phoenician/Celtic temple and calendar complex called “Mystery Hill” in New Hampshire. These obviously man-made structures have even been called glacial “erratics”39 to deny the obvious evidence of Old World ties to ancient America. It is unfortunate that some in modern academia have resorted to such unscholarly, fanciful extremes to maintain a state of denial regarding the evidence of Old World civilizations in ancient America. As a result, the exciting story of ancient America’s history has been largely withheld from the American public.

Unfortunately, the concept that “Columbus discovered America in 1492” has become such a cherished dogma that it now commands an almost superstitious devotion from modern academics. Columbus was a very brave mariner, but he was clearly preceded by other discoverers and colonists from the Old World who settled the New World millennia before Columbus. Columbus’ voyage was a courageous effort reestablishing New World links after the Dark Ages, but it is now known that such links commonly existed prior to the Dark Ages.

So far, we have discussed only the Phoenician inscriptions and presence in the New World. As noted earlier, the ancient Egyptians were also allies of King Solomon during his reign. Their navies were also skilled in oceanic navigation, utilizing the Semitic inhabitants of ancient Libya as their mariners. The ancient Egyptian-Libyan fleets sailed across the Indian Ocean and sent exploration and mining expeditions into the Pacific Ocean. The Egyptians mined gold in Sumatra,40 and writings and drawings of their Pacific explorations are found as far as the Hawaiian Islands41 as “the Egyptians roamed the Indian and Pacific Oceans for gold about 1000 B.C.”42 The date “about 1000 B.C.” is significant as that is the time when the united kingdom of Israel, under Kings David and Solomon, moved to world prominence, with the Phoenicians and Egyptians serving as Solomon’s allies. That the Egyptian fleet would be searching a large portion of the world for gold during a time which included the reign of King Solomon will become most significant when we later examine King Solomon’s insatiable appetite for gold!

Israelite Colonies in the New World

So far, we have only scratched the surface of the subject of ancient civilizations being present in North America. Let us examine additional evidence of their presence in the ancient New World.

Consider the languages of the triple alliance of Israel, Egypt and Phoenicia in the time of King Solomon. Their languages included the Semitic language shared by the Israelites and Phoenicians (with mere dialectal differences), Egyptian, and the language of the North African-Libyan sailors of the Egyptian navy. Let us now examine evidence that North America was both explored and colonized by people speaking Phoenician-Hebrew, Egyptian, and ancient Libyan.

Dr. Barry Fell’s book America B.C. includes much evidence of the exploration of American soil by ancient people with the above language groups. We have already examined evidence from his book that the Phoenicians had a significant presence in North America, and that the Phoenician god Baal was worshipped at an ancient temple site in New Hampshire. Rawlinson cited the habit of the Phoenicians in bringing their religion wherever they went, and building temples in their colonies to honor their deities,43 so the existence of a temple dedicated to Baal at the ancient New England temple site is consistent with their habits.

Explorations and settlements in ancient America would logically be concentrated on major inland waterways, and evidence of their presence has been found in such locales. A major archeological find, a stele inscribed with ancient Old World languages, was found in 1877 in a burial mound near Davenport, Iowa. Unfortunately, this New World equivalent of the Rosetta Stone was largely ignored because no one could read it. The false dogma that no Old World explorers prior to Columbus could have been on our continent also affected people’s perceptions. If it had been discovered in Europe, it would surely have been recognized for what it was: a tri-lingual archeological stele of ancient cultures. Since it was found in the American Midwest, it had to wait approximately a century to be appreciated. Surprisingly, one of the reasons the stele was initially rejected was that it contained “some signs resembling Hebrew and others resembling Phoenician.”44

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_m5011ad0

This ancient stele contains joint inscriptions in three ancient languages: Iberian-Punic (a language related to and descended from Phoenician-Hebrew), Egyptian, and ancient Libyan.45 These are the language groups of the triple alliance that the Bible reveals began in the reign of Solomon! Since this ancient stele confirms these groups were traveling and working together in the interior of North America, it indicates that this alliance not only existed but also had a global reach!

Indeed, Dr. Fell described this stele, shown above, as “one of the most important steles ever discovered.”46 Why then, is this priceless evidence of ancient exploration in North America not featured in history textbooks? Again, we are confronted by the refusal of modern academia to accept the obvious because of their devotion to the false dogma that nobody could have discovered America before Columbus. ‘

This ancient Iowan stele, attested by Dr. Barry Fell to be genuine, confirms that the language groups of King Solomon’s alliance were cooperating in joint-expeditions as far away as the American Midwest! Unless it was a well-established practice for the nations with these language groups to be in joint expeditions, there would have been no need for parallel inscriptions on the same stone. Dr. Fell dates this stele as follows:

The date is unlikely to be earlier than about 800 B.C., for we do not know of Iberian or Libyan inscriptions earlier than that date. The Egyptian text…may merely be a local American copy of some original. That original could be as old as about 1400 B.C., to judge by the writing style…it seems clear that Iberian and Punic speakers were living in Iowa in the 9th century B.C…” 47 (Emphasis added)

Dr. Fell also wrote that this ancient inscription found in Iowa could date to “around 700 B.C.”48 A dating of 800-700 B.C. is very consistent with biblical accounts of that period. That these language groups were still acting in such close concert with each other that they left a trilingual inscription at that time indicates that they were still cooperating very closely in trans-oceanic voyages. The Bible reveals an alliance of these linguistic groups was established under King Solomon during the tenth century B.C. The terms “Iberian” and “Punic” indicate languages that are closely related to and descended from the Phoenician-Hebrew language. Indeed, the term “Iber-ian” comes from the name “Eber,” the forefather of the Hebrews. The term “Iberian” proclaims Hebrew roots. Dr. Fell noted the “Phoenician character” of the Iberian inscriptions on either side of the Atlantic.49 Solomon’s reign began in obedience to God, but by 800 B.C., when the Iowan stele was apparently inscribed, the Israelite-Phoenician-Egyptian alliance had embraced paganism.

The makers of the Iowan stele may have been looking for raw materials to exploit; by then they had exhausted the copper mines of Lake Superior. However, because of Assyria’s growing pressure on Israel and the Phoenician city-states during 800-700 B.C., one motive for their voyage to North America may have been an effort to find a safe refuge from the Assyrian menace.

The next book in this series will confirm that the Phoenician-Israelites had extensive settlements in the Iberian Peninsula, modern Spain and Portugal, during most of the first millennium B.C. The ancient stele in Iowa may have been made by Israelites and Phoenicians who sailed from Iberian settlements. A date of 800-700 B.C. for this stele confirms that the triple alliance of Israel, Egypt and Phoenicia lasted long after the lifetime of King Solomon. The Bible records that the ten tribes of Israel forsook worshipping the Creator God after Solomon’s death, and adopted the religious customs of Egypt, Tyre and Sidon. Biblical accounts show Israel and Phoenicia were still very closely allied during the reign of King Ahab of Israel (circa 850 B.C.), and there is no evidence that their alliance suffered a breach until approximately 721 B.C., when Israel ceased to be a nation in the Mideast. Also, after Israel and Judah split into two separate Hebrew kingdoms, Egypt did fight periodic wars with Judah. Peaceful relations apparently prevailed between Egypt and Israel during that time. Therefore, the Iowa stele showing that these ancient nations were still working together around 800 B.C. in the New World is consistent with biblical accounts.

Dr. Fell wrote that this ancient stele and other artifacts were found in an Iowan burial mound.50 That this burial mound from about 800 B.C. confirmed the presence of Semites and Egyptians in ancient America, begs the following question: How many other burial mounds in ancient North America were made by Old World cultures?

Another stele exhibiting an ancient Egypto-Libyan script was found on Long Island, New York. (See photograph on opposite page) This inscription, according to Dr. Fell, “probably dates from about the ninth century B.C.”51 In his discussion of the inscriptions found on the Davenport and Long Island steles, Dr. Fell noted clear similarities between the written script of the Micmac/Algonquin Indians and that of ancient Egypt.”52 This analysis indicates that the Egyptians continued trading with ancient American inhabitants long after the kingdom of Israel fell to the Assyrians.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_3ebf3557

Additionally, another stele was unearthed in Oklahoma with reference to the Phoenician and Egyptian gods of Baal and Ra, with an inscription described as “an extract from the Hymn to the Aton by Pharaoh Akhnaton [which]…dates from the thirteenth century B.C.”53 This stele is written in Iberian-Punic (related to Hebrew/Phoenician), but is dated by Fell as “scarcely older than 800 B.C.”54 This stele also supports the biblical account of Israelite-Phoenician-Egyptian cooperation. Why is Pharaoh Akhenaton mentioned in an Egyptian writing in ancient North America? At this point, some striking information about Egyptian history finds a solid parallel in biblical events.

David Rohl’s book, Pharaohs and Kings, offers a revised chronology of Egypt’s dynastic rulers, which proposes remarkable parallels to biblical events and personalities. It has long been known that the reign of the “heretic” Pharaoh, Akhenaten (Dr. Fell’s “Akhnaton”), marked a temporary period in which an Egyptian ruler rejected the pantheon of Egyptian gods and required a virtually monotheistic devotion to the god “Aten” (or “Aton”). Rohl’s new chronology of Egypt’s dynasties has Akhenaten being a “contemporary” of King David of Israel!55 If this is the case, it argues that this inscription may have been made soon after the reign of Solomon, as it had to be a time when Israel, ruled by Jeroboam, had turned to paganism but when there were Egyptians still loyal to the beliefs of the “heretic” Pharaoh Akhenaten. Akhenaten’s belief-system was rejected by later Pharaohs, so it is difficult to make sense of a “hymn to Aton” (Akhenaten’s god) being present with an Egyptian contingent much past the reign of Jeroboam of Israel.

The internal turmoil in Egypt caused by Akhenaten’s rejection of traditional Egyptian deities provided a golden opportunity for King David’s Israel to focus all of its attentions eastward against Assyria while devoting scant attention to Egypt as a potential rival. The Bible relates that Egypt became Israel’s ally during King Solomon’s time, so Israel’s border with Egypt was secure during his reign as well.

David Rohl makes the following observation about this time:

During the period of Akhenaten’s reign and for decades afterwards Egypt became militarily impotent, due almost entirely to the politically naive rule of the heretic…The prosperous northern empire…had rapidly disintegrated…This chaotic era…would have provided the opportunity for a new state to come into being in Canaan — this is precisely what happened.”56 (Emphasis added)

In other words, Egypt was “impotent” during the reign of King David and also “for decades afterwards,” that is, during the reign of King Solomon! One reason for Egypt’s relative decline was the rise of Israel to world power status. The “impotence” of Egypt was also caused by the severe internal stresses resulting from the Pharaoh’s rejection of the old Egyptian pantheon, to which the priests and much of the populace remained loyal. The internal stresses in the reign of Akhenaten would have kept Egypt at the brink of civil war, unable to project power outside its own borders. Also, since Solomon’s reign was a time of peace and Egypt was allied to Israel, there was no need for Egypt to be warlike. When Israel’s civil war later split Israel’s tribes into two rival kingdoms, Egypt quickly attacked Judah and Jerusalem, reasserting its influence over its northern regions. (I Kings 14:25-29 )

However, Egypt attacked only Judah, but remained an ally of the northern kingdom of Israel, formed by the ten tribes of Israel. The first king of the northern Kingdom of Israel, Jeroboam, had been a courtier and friend of Egypt’s Pharaoh (I Kings 11:40 ), and one of his first official deeds was to institute the worship of Egypt’s apis bulls in the northern kingdom of Israel! (I Kings 12:28-30 ) King Jeroboam chose to seek security in alliances with Egypt, Tyre and Sidon instead of obedience to God. Jeroboam’s rejection of Israel’s God set a pattern for future kings, which would never be reversed. While the smaller kingdom of Judah periodically had good rulers who served God, the northern kingdom of Israel never returned to God. The ten tribes were politically, socially and religiously immersed into the “Phoenician” culture that was also allied with Egypt until the fall of Samaria.

The famous “Amarna tablets,” which preserve many letters to Pharaoh’s court from rulers of petty city-states in Palestine during the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten, take on a whole new perspective in David Rohl’s revised chronology. It is known the Amarna Tablets were written in the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten, as they were found in the ruins of Akhenaten’s capital city, Amarna. Egypt’s other Pharaohs ruled from other cities.

The events described on the Amarna Tablets coincide with biblical events and mention prominent biblical characters. In David Rohl’s words:

…the Amarna period is contemporary with the rise of the Israelite Monarchy…the Amarna letters log the whole process, beginning with the Hebrew revolt in the central hill country of Palestine at the beginning of King Saul’s reign and ending with the assault upon Jerusalem in the eighth year of King David.” 57 (Emphasis added)

It is a vital clue that the Amarna tablets seem to end with the eighth year of King David’s reign. That is the year that David conquered Jerusalem and became king over all the united tribes of Israel. (II Samuel 5:1-10) When David unified all the tribes of Israel under his unified command, the petty city-state rulers who had been writing to Pharaoh Akhenaten ceased their messages. The reason is obvious. David tolerated no opponents as he consolidated the territory under his rule; rulers of city-states within his claimed domain either submitted to David or they died. The Amarna letters mention the leaders and activities of a group of people called “the Habiru,” which is an obvious term for “the Hebrews.” Rohl notes the “Sumerian logogram-form” for the word “Habiru” is “SA.GAZ.”58 The term “SA.GAZ” is a form of the root word of the Israelite forefather “Isaac,” [the “Saga,” “Sacae,” or “Saka”], which Genesis 21:12  and 48:14-16  had prophesied would be the name attached to the birthright Israelite tribes.

David Rohl asserts that the Amarna Tablets identify Israel’s King Saul as “Labayu,” a king who rose to power in Palestine. King Labayu wrote letters to Pharaoh Akhenaten in the Canaanite tongue, which is “simply early Hebrew” in David Rohl’s words.59

For a full accounting of the Amarna Tablets’ description of biblical events and personalities, the reader is referred to David Rohl’s aforementioned book. However, several instances will be cited here. Many readers are familiar with the story of David’s close friendship with Jonathan, the son of Saul. This friendship infuriated King Saul (I Samuel 20:30-31 ), and this story is also found in the Amarna Letters. As David Rohl describes it:

In Labayu’s third letter to Pharaoh (EA 254) we learn that the king’s son…has been implicated in the activities of the Habiru [David’s rebel band]. This is without the knowledge of his father. Labayu [Saul] writes: ‘…the king wrote for my son. I did not know that my son was consorting with the Habiru. I herewith hand him over…’ Here again is a clear parallel with the story of King Saul’s reign.”60

The Bible records that Saul died fighting the Philistines in a battle that the Hebrew Israelites lost. (I Samuel 31) One of the Amarna letters to the Pharaoh is from the Philistine King of Gath, the city of Goliath, who tells Pharaoh of Labayu’s death:

Let the king…be informed that the Habiru (singular) who was raised up against the lands; the god of…my lord, delivered him to me, and I have smitten him.”61

The obsequious language of the Philistine king indicates that while Egypt was in temporary decline, the chieftains of Palestine recognized that they were still in Egypt’s “sphere of influence” and they wanted to not alienate the Pharaoh. It was not until David united all of Israel’s tribes that Egypt’s titular influence in Palestine ended. According to Rohl, the following biblical characters are named in the Amarna letters. David is referred to as “Dadua,” and Rohl supports his conclusion by noting:

In its earliest Hebrew form the name David is written Dwd [cf. I Samuel 16:13 ]..The Septuagint renders the name as Dad [cf. I Kings 2:33  (ALEXANDRINUS COPY) and Ecclesiasticus 47:1 ].”62 (Latter emphasis added)

Rohl also notes that Joab, King David’s army commander, is named “Ayab” (Hebrew: “Yoab”) in the Amarna Letters,63 and that David’s father, Jesse, is called “Yishuya.”64 Non-Israelites mentioned in the Bible are also identified by Rohl in the Amarna Letters. He cites Goliath as being the “Gulatu” of the Amarna records, and he identifies biblical Syrian kings, Hadadezer of Zobah and Toi of Hamath, as being named in the Amarna Letters. Rohl also identifies one Amarna Letter (EA 256) as being from the short-lived king of Israel, Ishbosheth (Saul’s son), who mentions he cannot find “Ayab” (Joab) as he also mentions the biblical personalities of Baanah (Benenima), David (Dadua) and Jesse (Yishuya) in his account. Baanah eventually assassinated Ishbosheth and brought the king’s head to David, the son of Jesse, who executed Baanah for his regicide (II Samuel 4). It is noteworthy that all the personalities mentioned in Amarna Letter EA 256 actually do interact as contemporaries in the Bible.

The Amarna Letters appear to be the account of Israel’s rise to power in the time of David. If Pharaoh Akhenaten was a contemporary of King David, it explains why Egypt was passive during the glory days of Kings David and Solomon of Israel. It may also explain why an Egyptian Pharaoh became fascinated with monotheism, the religion of the resurgent Israelites. It took time for Egypt to reassert itself after the domestic turmoil caused by Akhenaten’s reign. When Egypt allied itself to Israel, Tyre and Sidon, it was in a weaker international position. King Jeroboam of Israel later forged strong links between Egypt and the northern kingdom of Israel during his reign, and discoveries of Hebrew-Egyptian-Phoenician artifacts in ancient North America confirm this alliance lasted for centuries.

We have seen evidence that Baal-worshipping Hebrew-Phoenicians were in ancient America, but what about worshippers of the God of Israel? One major barrier to finding relics of worshippers of God (Yahweh) is that such worshippers were forbidden by God to build elaborate altars. In Exodus 20:24-26 , God commanded the Israelites to make plain altars of earth or natural stones which had not been shaped by any tools, and added that altars not be placed at the head of staircases. These instructions effectively eliminated the man-made religious structures that the pagans built, and which can be unearthed by archeologists today. There could have been many worshippers of Yahweh in ancient America at the time that Israel served God under King Solomon, and there would be little evidence of them because of God’s instructions on altar-building. Also, Exodus 20:23 records that God forbade making “gods of gold and silver,” and the second of the Ten Commandments forbids the manufacture of any “graven image” as part of religious worship. This further eliminates the types of artifacts (idols) which pagan worshippers commonly manufactured. God gave these instructions so people would keep their minds focused on God and His laws, and not on physical objects.

However, there is evidence that worshippers of Yahweh, the God of Israel, were present in ancient America. At Hidden Mountain, near Los Lunas, New Mexico, the Ten Commandments were written on a large stone in ancient Hebrew. Dr. Fell noted that “the inscription, written in ancient Hebrew letters of the style of the Moab Stone, about 1000 B.C., was not translated until 1949.”65 A dating around 1000 B.C. would place this inscription during the reigns of Kings David and Solomon of the united kingdom of Israel when Israel was, indeed, serving the God of the Bible. (The famous “Moabite Stone,” referred to above, was found in the Mideast and refers to wars between Israel and Moab in the ninth century B.C., during the time of the separate kingdoms of Israel and Judah.) George Morehouse, a geologist who studied this ancient Hebrew Decalogue inscription, estimated the inscription to be 500-2000 years old based on the weathered patina of the rock.66 However, accurately dating the inscription on the basis of weatherization was made very difficult, if not impossible, by the fact that the inscriptions had received periodic scrubbings which removed evidence of weatherization needed for dating.67

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_m2bb63be9

Further complicating the dating of this ancient Hebrew inscription is the statement that “the punctuation [of the inscription] matched that of ancient Greek manuscripts, such as the Codex Sinaiticus of the fourth century A.D.”68 Dr. Fell’s discussion of this artifact stated that separation points like those in this inscription date as early as 1200 B.C., but that the oldest known record of some punctuation marks (carets to denote an insertion to correct an omission) date to the Codex Sinaiticus of the fourth century A.D. This does not date the Hebrew inscription to the fourth century A.D.,69 but is rather an example of the oldest known occurrence of a similar punctuation mark. How long such punctuation was used prior to the fourth century A.D. is not known.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_m15b2756c

In view of the above, this Los Lunas inscription pre-dates the arrival of Columbus by at least a thousand years, but it most likely dates to the time of King Solomon for several reasons. The first reason is that the inscription is in the Paleo-Hebrew characters in use from approximately 1200-600 B.C., which includes the reign of King Solomon. A second piece of evidence is what the inscription says! Since it is an inscription of the Ten Commandments given by God to Moses, it was obviously made by Israelites at a time when they worshipped the God of the Bible. Since the Kingdom of Israel quickly degenerated into pagan practices after the reign of Solomon, it argues that this inscription was made during the reign of Solomon when God’s laws were the standard for the nation. I Kings 10:22  records that Solomon’s sailors undertook voyages that returned after three years with samples of wildlife, apes and peacocks, from other continents. Such fleets could easily have visited the New World during a three-year voyage.

Another factor powerfully supporting a dating of this ancient Hebrew inscription to the time of Solomon are the economic and logistic realities in the ancient world. Transoceanic expeditions and colonization efforts in the ancient world required a very large commitment of monetary and human resources. The source of such resources had to be the king of a wealthy nation. Because the New Mexico inscription is in ancient Hebrew, the sponsor for that ancient expedition had to be a very wealthy king of the ancient Israelites! Solomon was the wealthiest ancient King of Israel, and he reigned at a time when the Israelites kept the Ten Commandments.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_m155e830c

The high cost of financing trans-Atlantic voyages is verified when one considers the European colonization efforts, which began when Columbus “rediscovered” America in 1492. European colonization at the beginning of the modern era required the backing and approval of national monarchs in order to occur at all. Even companies with a large presence in the New World, such as the Hudson’s Bay Company, conducted their efforts only with the support and favor of a reigning monarch. Those who would argue for a more recent date for the Los Lunas inscriptions are confronted with this major problem: What Old World nation in the fourth century A.D., or any other date more recent than Solomon’s reign, would fund exploration and/or colonization efforts in the New World which would leave behind ancient Hebrew inscriptions? Since there were no powerful and rich Hebrew-speaking nations in the fourth century A.D., any such proposed dating lacks the support of any logical historical context for its occurrence.

Because the Los Lunas inscription proclaims its makers were devoted to the God of the Ten Commandments, we are limited to those kings of Israel who could have funded international expeditions during Israel’s brief period of loyalty to God. This requirement limits the prospective dating of the Los Lunas inscription to the reigns of Kings David and Solomon.

The kings of Israel that followed David and Solomon were, almost without exception, apostates who served Baal and other idolatrous gods. Under later kings, any sailing fleets would have left inscriptions devoted to pagan gods, as in the inscriptions on the tri-lingual, Davenport artifact. The kings of Judah who survived until about 587 B.C., had several righteous kings whose followers served God, but Judah was a small nation with few resources to fund and mount such expeditions. Judah had interludes of resurgent national power, but there is no record that Judah was ever a naval power. I Kings 22:48-49  and II Chronicles 20:36-37  record that righteous King Jehoshaphat tried to build a fleet for Judah, perhaps to compete with the fleets of Israel-Phoenicia, but God himself intervened to stop Judah from becoming a naval power.Therefore, the only logical historical context for the making of the Los Lunas inscriptions is still during the reigns of either King David or King Solomon.

Since King David was a warrior with little interest in scientific endeavors, the reign of King Solomon is the most logical milieu for any expeditions or colonization efforts which had Israelites carving inscriptions in ancient America proclaiming a loyalty to the God of the Bible. Also, King Solomon’s insatiable scientific curiosity about the world’s flora and fauna (I Kings 4:29-33 , 10:22 ) made him eager to fund international expeditions.

This author has personally visited and inspected the Los Lunas inscription, and the site is located adjacent to a large, dry river-bed. This vanished river would formerly have been a major tributary of the Rio Grande River during a wetter climate when the river flowed freely. As the dry river-bed attests, there was once enough water in the ancient Southwest to support thriving colonies. It is likely that the ancient Israelites established a colony at the Los Lunas site during the time of King Solomon when the area could be reached via sailing routes from the Gulf of Mexico and the tributaries of the Rio Grande River. When the climate reverted to its dominant arid condition, the colony would have been abandoned.

In an apparent attempt to discredit the validity of the ancient Hebrew translation of the Los Lunas inscriptions, some artifacts were “discovered” in the region of the Los Lunas inscriptions and certain individuals asserted that these new “artifacts” indicated that the Los Lunas inscriptions were Greek (not Hebrew) writings from about 500 B.C. In a 1986 court trial, it was conclusively demonstrated by expert epigraphers/linguists that while the Los Lunas inscription is a valid Hebrew rendition of the Ten Commandments, the other “artifacts” and the supposed Greek translation were hoaxes.70

Additional evidence of ancient worshippers of the Bible’s God in ancient America has been noted on a “Decalogue Tablet” (an artifact bearing an ancient Hebrew inscription of the Ten Commandments) unearthed in Ohio in 1860. Besides having the Ten Commandments inscribed on it, the tablet includes a depiction of “an individual meant to represent Moses [which] has been carved in considerable detail on the ‘front’ of the tablet…[and] a ‘handle’ at the bottom of the tablet, which may have been constructed to accommodate a strap.”71 The presence of a handle on this tablet indicates that it served as a portable object, which could accompany worshippers of God as they were traveling in ancient America.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_26969ebf

This “Decalogue Tablet” was found with grave goods in an ancient American burial mound. Its presence suggests that the person interred in the mound may have been an ancient Levite present with Israelite explorers or colonists in ancient America. It has been noted that the Hebrew inscription also has some characteristics of “the old Phoenician alphabets.”72 A Hebrew inscription with Phoenician features is exactly what ancient Israelite inscriptions should be like. The Israelites were close allies of the Phoenicians and shared a common culture and navy from the time of King David until the fall of Israel circa 721 B.C. Their artifacts would naturally exhibit the traits of both cultures.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_9d8b7b6

While this artifact unearthed from an Ohio burial mound cannot be specifically dated, the alphabet used indicates that it was made by ancient followers of God who spoke Hebrew. While it would be tempting to date this artifact to the time of King Solomon, the fact that it was engraved with square Hebrew letters indicates a date several centuries more recent than the Los Lunas tablet, which exhibited the more ancient Paleo-Hebrew letters. This raises the possibility that there were Israelite colonists in the New World who remained loyal to the laws of God long after Old World Israelites abandoned them. Linguistic traits in the New World could also be retained for a greater length of time due to their remoteness from the Old World and its linguistic changes.

More evidence of a Hebrew presence in ancient New England, in the area of the 20 acre “temple site” discussed earlier, is seen in the presence of hundreds of Hebrew-Semitic root words in the languages of the Eastern Algonquin Indians, as Dr. Barry Fell documented.73

Whatever the dating of the above artifacts, such discoveries provide firm archaeological support to the Bible’s assertion that the ancient Israelites sponsored wide-ranging fleets and were one the major nations of the ancient world. Since the Ten Commandments in ancient Hebrew have been found in both Ohio and New Mexico, it confirms that ancient Israelite explorations and/or colonizations of the New World were widespread. These facts may be disconcerting to “establishment” sources who cling to the flawed dogma that “Columbus discovered America in 1492” no matter how voluminous the evidence that Israelites and other Old World civilizations sent explorers or colonists to the New World. This evidence will become ever more voluminous and convincing as this book series continues.

Hundreds of inscribed Phoenician, Celtiberian, and Basque stone grave markers, dated to 800-600 B.C., have been found in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania.74 The inscriptions on these artifacts had been identified as Phoenician decades prior to Dr. Fell’s research,75 but these facts were incompatible with the dogmas and assumptions of modern historians so they were ignored.

The Egyptian presence in the New World has been found in the writing system of the Wabanaki/Micmac Indians (an Algonquin tribe) of Maine,76 in an ancient tablet found on Long Island in New York,77 and on the Iowa stele mentioned earlier in this chapter. Also, it has been documented that the ancient Egyptians sailed the Pacific Ocean as afar as Polynesia and Hawaii as they “roamed the Indian and Pacific Oceans for gold about 1000 B.C.”78(Emphasis added) The date of “1000 B.C.” parallels the golden age of Israel’s Empire days under Kings David and Solomon when the Bible records that Egypt was allied to King Solomon’s Israelites.

An inscription in ancient Ogam and Libyan, the language of Egyptian sailors, was found near the Rio Grande River of Texas, indicating North Africans sponsored by an Egyptian/Libyan king named Shishonq visited North America in ancient times.79 The ancient inscription is translated as, “A crew of Shishonq the King took shelter in this place of concealment,” and Dr. Fell’s commentary on the inscription states: “several kings of this name ruled Libya and Egypt between 1000-800 B.C., an era when North African voyagers began to explore the New World.”80 (Emphasis added)

Whether this inscription dates to the reign of King Solomon or not, it further confirms that nautical travel between the Mediterranean Region and North America took place in ancient times. The phrase “Crew of Shishonq the King” may indicate that the king himself was on the voyage. Obviously, monarchs would not likely have come to the New World unless it was considered safe to leave their home kingdoms. A period of peaceful stability, as during King Solomon’s reign, would have been an ideal time for such journeys. Also, the Bible records that many monarchs did undertake international visits during the reign of Solomon. (II Chronicles 9:23-24 ) The Bible mentions an Egyptian ruler named “Shishak” (i.e. “Shishonq”) sacked Jerusalem during the time of King Rehoboam of Judah. (I Kings 14:25-26 ) While Shishak’s Egypt attacked Judah, the smaller Jewish kingdom, it did not attack the much larger, northern Israelite kingdom of Israel. Indeed, Egypt’s Shishak was a friend of King Jeroboam of Israel (I Kings 11:40), so the ten tribes of Israel in the northern kingdom of Israel likely cheered Shishak as he attacked Judah, their estranged Israelite brothers.

Dr. Fell cited the work of Gloria Farley, who “made notable finds of ancient inscriptions left by Libyans, Celts and Phoenicians who ascended the Mississippi, Arkansas and Cimarron Rivers.”81 The evidence is compelling that the ancient alliance of Israel, Egypt, Tyre and Sidon extensively explored North America during biblical times, following the river courses in Phoenician ships.

It is significant that Dr. Fell noted the time period of “1000-800 B.C.” as marking a period of significant Old World exploration of the New World. This time frame exactly parallels Bible records showing international travel and commerce flourished with fleets undertaking multi-year voyages and visiting other continents. This time frame begins with the reign of Kings David and Solomon, but continues through much of the history of the northern kingdom of Israel, the dominant partner in the Phoenician alliance until Israel fell circa 721 B.C. The conclusion is inescapable that the record of ancient history verifies the biblical accounts. The Bible is not a detailed history of all that happened in the ancient world, but it confirms what archaeology and epigraphy have shown about the real state of commerce and travel in the ancient world.

Israel’s “Phoenician” Empire

Many historical accounts confirm that the beginning of the first millennium B.C., marked a golden age for Phoenicia. Historian Philip Hitti states:

Phoenician trade on an international scale in textiles, metalwork, pottery, glass, timber, wheat and wine gave the country three centuries – beginning around 1000 B.C. – of prosperity unmatched in its history.”82 (Emphasis added)

Secular evidence that Phoenicia’s greatness began around 1000 B.C. is critically important since it coincides precisely with the period during which King Hiram of Tyre allied his people to King David’s Israelites. Since the Israelites were of a common race, language and culture with the Phoenicians, the true Israelite role in “Phoenicia’s golden age” has not been recognized. In fact, it was Israel’s golden age rubbing off on the Phoenician city-states! Israel was the dominant partner in the Phoenician alliance with Tyre and Sidon serving as junior partners. This conclusion is supported by the facts that Phoenicia’s “golden age” did not start until it allied itself to Israel, and that their “golden age” ended when Israel fell. The small city-states of Phoenicia were unable to sustain any “golden age” of international power apart from their alliance with Israel.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_m5ad3a454

At this juncture, new observations must be made about the term “Phoenicia.” This book has so far referred to the inhabitants of the city-states of Tyre and Sidon as “Phoenicians,” and to the inhabitants of Israel as “Israelites.” However, the term “Phoenicia,” when applied to the ancient world in the time frame 1000-700 B.C., designates the combined alliance of the Israelites and the city-states led by Tyre and Sidon. It must be realized that the people we call “Phoenicia” did not give themselves that name. The term “Phoenicia” is derived from a Greek word, which the Greek historians used to describe several nations living on the Eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. George Rawlinson wrote:

“At first, the term [Phoenicia] was used [by the Greeks] with a good deal of vagueness, of the Syrian coast generally between Asia Minor and Egypt.”83 (Emphasis added)

The Encyclopedia Judaica states that “the Greek name Phoinike is first mentioned by Homer,”84 and it adds:

though the exact extent of the region called Phoenicia cannot be determined, the name is clearly the Greek equivalent of Canaan.”85 (Emphasis added)

Lionel Casson, author of The Ancient Mariners states concerning the Phoenicians:

Even their name is a puzzle. They called themselves Sidonians, from the city that was their chief center until Tyre outstripped it about the beginning of the first millennium B.C., and their land was Canaan. It was the Greeks who named them the ‘Phoinikes’ [Phoenicians]…”86 (Emphasis added)

The above accounts all indicate the term “Phoenicia” included a region much larger than just the small city-states on the eastern Mediterranean coastline. What harmony with the Bible! I Kings 5:6  also uses the term “Sidonians,” but that same chapter of the Bible shows King Hiram of Tyre becoming the leader of the Phoenician city-states at the beginning of the first millennium B.C! Casson’s account also affirms concerning the Phoenicians that the land of Canaan was “their land!” It is well-known that “the land of Canaan” was the territory of the Israelites! The Bible actually provides us with contemporary information about who was in the Phoenician alliance, and why it became so powerful as the first millennium dawned.

Bk1-ch6-Phoenician-Maritime-Skills-pp206-232-1_html_2c8e4e2c

The Greek age of Homer is identified in Halley’s Bible Handbook as being contemporary with Israel’s golden age under Kings David and Solomon.87 The Encyclopaedia Britannica lists many optional dates for Homer’s birth, including 1159 B.C., 1102 B.C., 1044 B.C., and 830 B.C. 88 The Encyclopedia Americana states:

Ancient tradition…plac[ed] Homer in the 9th century B.C….These [poetic sources] suggest a date, now widely accepted, in the last half of the 8th century B.C.”89

While no one knows the dates of Homer’s lifetime, all of the above suggested dates coincide with the period that the Israelites lived in Canaan.This is important because if Homer and his fellow Greeks originated the term “Phoenicia,” they did so at a time when the city-states of Tyre, Sidon, etc., were so closely linked to the Kingdom of Israel that they were virtually one entity.

The word “Phoenicia” is, therefore, derived from an initial Greek description of the area known to us as the land of Canaan and the broader Levantine region of the Eastern Mediterranean. The term “Phoenicia” was applied to this area at a time when Israel was the dominant power in the region; therefore, the original application of the term “Phoenicia” included Israel. The Encyclopedia Americana succinctly confirms the above conclusions in these words:

The name ‘Phoenicians’ was given by the Greeks to the inhabitants of the coastal region of present-day Lebanon and the adjacent shores of Israel and Syria in the first millennium B.C. No evidence exists that they called themselves by any such name.”90 (Emphasis added)

This explains why the term “Phoenicia” is absent from the Bible. Unlike modern history texts that reflect Greco-Roman perspectives, the Bible was written from a Hebrew perspective, and it records the names by which the “Phoenicians” referred to themselves. Such names included “Israel,” “Sidonians,” “people of Tyre,” and even the names of Israel’s large tribal units.

After Israel fell, the term “Phoenicia” remained on the smaller city-states of Tyre, Sidon, etc., even though they lacked the manpower to sustain the empire that had existed when they were allied to the Israelites. However, during the period of 1000-700 B.C., the term “Phoenicia” meant the alliance of Israel and the city-states of Tyre, Sidon, etc. It is not technically correct to say the Israelites were “allied to the Phoenicians” because Israel itself was the dominant member of the allied people on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea who were called “Phoenicians” by the Greeks. This explains why international power and influence characterized the “Phoenicians” from approximately 1000-700 B.C., the time when Israel was in the alliance, and why the term “Phoenician” describes a people with severely reduced numbers and influence after 700 B.C., when the Israelites were absent and the city-states were left all alone.

This series of books will sometimes refer to “Phoenicians” and “Israelites,” but the reader should realize that, during the lifetime of the kingdom of Israel, the term “Phoenicia” included the Israelites.

Philip Hitti also notes: “around 1100 B.C., Egyptian wisdom writing reached its highest ethical point…[it] counsels against arrogance, snobbery, ill-temper, and oppressing the poor. [It]… stresses courtesy, deference, contentment, tolerance and kindness…it served as a source for certain Hebrew Proverbs.” 91 The Hebrew proverbs referred to are, of course, those attributed to Solomon at the beginning of the first millennium B.C., and found in the book of Proverbs in the Bible. Whether Solomon borrowed these from the Egyptians or whether it was in fact the other way around is a valid question. The time dating of “around 1100 B.C.” is so close to the reign of Solomon that the case can easily be made that the “wisdom” of the Egyptians was learned from their ally, Solomon. The above virtues are all regularly found in the Bible as elements of how God expects us to deal with other people. It is significant that Egyptian wisdom “reached its highest ethical point” at the general time that Egypt was allied to King Solomon, the wisest king who ever lived! The fact that Egypt’s Pharaoh became Solomon’s father-in-law (I Kings 9:16 ) also offered an easy pathway for Solomon’s wisdom to flow to Egypt’s elites.

From the above accounts we find international power attributed to the Phoenicians and wisdom characterizing the Egyptians at a time the Bible states both had allied themselves with King Solomon of Israel, who was exceedingly powerful and wise.

Best Kept Secret From Hell-Part 1 of 2

Best Kept Secret from Hell – Part 1:
Satan’s Master Plan to Deceive Millions of Believers
(The Best Kept Secret from Hell)

Beloved Christian, is it possible that you can you be baptised, reborn and speaking in tongues and then land up in hell-fire? I want to share with you something that Yeshua (Jesus) said that is earth-shattering and defies description…

Do you know that Typology is a system of Scripture interpretation applied by early Scholars to the Hebrew Scriptures (the Old Covenant – OT), by which certain events, images, and personages of the “pre-Christian” era could be understood as prophetic types or figures foreshadowing the life of Messiah.

Typology—literally, the study of types—is thus a method of re-reading the Old Covenant in context in terms of the New Covenant; so that Adam, Isaac, Jonah, and other characters are pre-figures of Yeshua, and so on.

In this Book it will be proven from the Typology study of Yeshua seen in His fulfilment of the Five Offerings of Leviticus, and from the very words He spoke in the New Covenant that you can indeed go to Hell even if you are reborn. This is one of the most crucial teachings and is specifically aimed at the re-born Believer and not the non-believer.

Another Coffee Break

Deliver Us From Evil, Part 14

Last week, we started off a bit differently than we have in the past, and this week’s Coffee Break is no different. Last week, we dealt with the effect of curses, and the non-effect of causeless curses. This week, let’s talk about deliverance from the need to compromise.

In Psalm 122:6, David writes, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.  Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.  For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.  Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.

Then Ezekiel prophesies, “Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the LORD: unto us is this land given in possession.  Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.

Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.  And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.  But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 11:14-21)

Brother! What a mouthful!  Now, before we get too far along in this and you begin to wonder where I’m headed in this discussion, let me lay a clear foundation.

In Exodus 34:10-17, we read the following: “And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.  Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee: But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:

For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.  Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

OK.  That ought to be a good start. You DO understand, do you not, what we’re talking about here?

God made it absolutely, abundantly clear that the nation of Israel was NOT to compromise with, make covenants with, nor co-habit the land of their inheritance with the seven nations whom He had pronounced His judgment upon. Let’s not forget that the judgment against these seven nations actually goes back many hundreds of years even before Israel was in captivity in Egypt. It began with a homosexual act committed by Ham against his father, Noah, while he was in a drunken stupor.

Lest you think I’m off on some wild hair, let me take you back to Genesis 9:24-25 where we read, “And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.  And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Let’s be clear about this. Noah didn’t pronounce this most incredible of curses because Ham had simply pulled his robe off to look at him while he was drunk. Verse 22 of the same chapter tells us (KJV) that Ham “saw the nakedness of his father” and then went and bragged to his brothers about what he had done. 

Gesenius, in his Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, tells us that the phrase “saw the nakedness of” is a metaphor for engaging in an illicit sexual act — regardless of whether it refers to male or female.

The fact that Ham committed this act was horrific enough as it was, but to commit it upon his father was an unspeakable act of treachery and betrayal, never mind the fact that he subsequently laughs and brags to his two brothers. I know it seems like I’m going around a 40-acre field, but bear with me for a moment.

Thus Noah pronounced a curse upon Canaan, the firstborn son of Ham, along with all of the seed to follow in that lineage. The Amorites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites and the Girgashites were all descendants of Canaan. God specifically promised the lands of these nations to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob/Israel; and He subsequently told Moses that HE would drive them out of the land before Israel.  Israel, however, was NOT to covenant with them, not to compromise with them in any way, not to intermarry with their sons and daughters.

In fact, they did just that.  Only one of the seven nations actually disappeared — the Girgashites. Both Scripture and history tell us that they fled from the land before the oncoming Israelites.  Joshua began the compromise with the nations when he failed to check with the Lord concerning the Gibeonites. Had he done so, he would quickly have learned that they were Hivites who were using their deceptive and manipulative skills in order to survive and avoid their destruction at that moment in time.

Let’s not forget that this tactic of the Hivites was already well established when the sons of Hamor — and particularly Shechem — sought a covenant with Jacob in the matter of Jacob’s daughter, Dinah.  The story unfolds in Genesis 34.

We see Shechem and Hamor talking with their fellow-Hivite elders and saying, “These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters.

Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised.  Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs be ours? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us.” 

The picture is quite obvious. Once they’ve intermarried with the descendants of Jacob, their intention is to gobble up everything they’ve got. It was a spirit that ruled the entire nation of Hivites. Deception, trickery, lies, false promises, manipulation, using sexual seduction — you name it — all were characteristics of these people.

And the Hivites were not alone in these characteristics. Those these traits were the dominant traits of the Hivites — and each of the other seven nations had their own specific traits, cultural identities and characteristics — the use of deception and trickery in order to gain control of their enemies was common to all seven nations.

Hence, the Lord gave Moses a direct order to kill, to destroy every last man, woman, child, cattle and beast of the field belonging to these nations: not to save alive any portion of their existence, but to blot them out.

Got the picture?

Good.

Let’s take this the next step. Most of those people who call themselves “Palestinians” are, in fact, descendants of one or more of these accursed nations. The present-day Gaza Strip is the old stomping grounds of the Philistines, who were an Amorite tribe. Palestinians occupying the so-called “West Bank” historically are descendants of the Amorites and Hittites, along with a mix of Ammonites (present day Amman, Jordan [and one of the oldest cities in continuous existence for thousands of years] gets its name from its Ammonite forbears). The name, Palestine, actually derives from its origin in Philistia (the Philistines).

Here’s a problem.  Israel’s old – and now imprisoned — Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, announced his intention to divide the city of Jerusalem and give away — unilaterally, if necessary — half the city to the Palestinians. That ultimately cost Olmert his Prime Ministership, and eventually saw him tried for fraud and corruption.

If memory serves me correctly, it was Winston Churchill who once said, “Peace at any price is no peace at all.”

Olmert’s efforts to gain peaceful coexistence with the Palestinians were doomed before they ever got off the ground.  He sought, once again, to compromise with a people who have made it abundantly clear (and have never renounced this) that their ultimate purpose is the control of and eradication — if necessary — of all Jews in Israel, along with the expunging of the name of Israel from the lands and territories they want to call Palestine. Olmert, in fact, was simply repeating the mistakes made by the leaders in Israel more than 3300 years ago.  His labors and efforts — in ignorance, I am sure – could have brought a curse upon the nation and the people.

With Hamas now in control of the Palestinian people, their intentions have become very overt, whereas before they were more covert. Before I go on with this, let me make something very clear.  We are not talking about a people, even though we make reference to the Palestinians. There are many Palestinian people who would just as soon live in peace and prosperity with the Jews. There are many of them who don’t care anything whatever for a so-called nation of Palestine.  There are many of them who actually are committed Christians.

What I am referring to is a spirit in control of the leadership of these people. It is the same spirit that Israel needed to overcome that was in control of the nations that occupied that region prior to its being given to the descendants of Israel by the Lord God.  This is a “principality,” a “ruler of the darkness” of the region. Once again, we see this spirit seeking the elimination and annihilation of God’s people, Israel, just as it did when the Lord gave the lands to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by divine covenant.

And once again, we saw the leaders in Israel seeking a compromise in order to bring an end to the perpetual conflict that has plagued the region. While it isn’t hard to understand the desire for peace, peace at any price — including the giving away of one’s inheritance, and especially half of a city that has the most incredible history of any city in the world: a history of God’s purposes and His covenant with a people who have chosen a relationship with Him — results in no peace, and ultimately the destruction of those who capitulate to compromise.

David well knew the history of Jerusalem before he wrote, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” and then prophesied, “they shall prosper that love thee.”

That said, one of the purposes of today’s Coffee Break is to alert Christians to a conspiracy of Satan — actually a conspiracy that has existed for millennia — and call the body of Christ to prayer and intercession for Jerusalem, and for the nation of Israel. I believe it is incumbent upon us as believers to pray the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecy, to wit:

Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.  And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

Let’s make it clear. The Palestinian inhabitants (under the control of this evil spirit), “The inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the LORD: unto us is this land given in possession.” The gathering of the people, as prophesied by Ezekiel, began many years ago. The assembling out of the countries where Jews have been scattered for centuries has been taking place since the 1940’s. What has not yet manifested is “a new spirit” and God’s promise that “I will take the stony heart out of their flesh.

In the coming days and weeks, I call upon all of you who read this to join us in concerted prayer and intercession for Jerusalem, and for Israel.  God has a purpose here, and I will not stand idly by knowing that purpose, and fail in my responsibility to cry out on behalf of the city, and the nation.

There’s a whole lot more I could say on this, but hopefully, this will adequately spur you to prayer, to intercession, to praise, to High Praise, to worship, to “battle worship.”

This is a warning to those who would compromise with the Enemy.  Beware, my brothers and sisters! Compromise leads to destruction!

Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus – Part 7
By Dr. Roy Blizzard

Most of what we do in the body is immature anyway.  That’s right.  Unfortunately about 90% of what the body does today is immature.   Did you ever come into an assembly of the saints and they would give a tongue and it would be that long.  And there would be an interpretation come and it would be that long.  Or somebody get up with a tongue and it sounds like gibberish and the interpretation would be, “my little children, thus I say unto thee, thy praises have gone up before me and I have heard thy prayers and I have the praise….”  Have you wondered about it and what was happening?  Did it bother you?  It just to do me the same way until one day, right in the middle of it, I mean it was going on around me, it was just like the Lord jerked a knot in me and brought me up short and said, “One thing you need to understand, Mr., the body has to be afforded the opportunity to be immature or they’ll never grow to maturity.”  What should our response be when we see immaturity in the body?  We ought to say glory to God.  There’s another one of God’s children taking another step towards maturity.  Do you want to know a real indication of maturity?  The willingness on the part of the individual in the pew to receive correction from those who have been placed in a position of spiritual authority over them.  Whenever some dear sister stand up and interrupts the pastor in the middle of his sermon with a tongue and the pastor says, “Sister, sit down.   That’s not the time or the place.  The Holy Spirit doesn’t interrupt himself. You sit down and be quiet until I’m through and the Holy Spirit is through ministering through me and then we’ll see if he has something to say through you.”  Then you sit down and say, “Glory to God, I’m learning.” But let me tell you this, because of who it is that is in you and because of the capacity that you have in God, for all of the manifestations of the spirit, faith, knowledge, wisdom, miracles, healings, prophesy, discernment of spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues to be flowing in and through you to minister life and health to the body, you need never to shrink back in fear moving out in faith believing in God for miracles in your life.  I don’t know about you, but I’d rather make a mistake for God than I would make one for the Devil.  I’d rather make a fool out of myself for God than make a fool out of myself for the Devil.  That opportunity must be afforded for God’s people whenever they come together to minister fellowship one to the other.  Why do we come together?  If we’ve been commissioned as kingdom to go, where have we been commissioned to go?  Into the cities and into the villages to do what?  To take the authority over the devil, to lay hands on the sick and they’ll recover, then why do we come back together again?  We think we come back together to hear somebody preach at us.  But preaching is to be done to the lost by you.  So whenever we come back together why do we come together?  Because all of the time during the week if we know who we are and what we are and who it is that’s in us we have been out there expending that energy of God and now we need to come back and get those spiritual batteries recharged. 

               Who is it that’s in us?  Jesus Christ.  Who is Jesus Christ?  God.  What has he given us?  His power.  His Holy Spirit to do the work that he’s commissioned us to do.  What is that work? To be the kingdom of God.  What is Kingdom?  Those people over whom God is ruling and who are demonstrating the rule of God in practical application in their lives.  What is the commission of kingdom?  To go unto the cities and the villages to take the authority over the devil and he’ll flee from before you.  To lay your hands on the sick and they’ll recover and to say that the kingdom of God has come near you.  Why do we come back together?  To get our spiritual batteries recharged, to get our needs met in order that we might get back out there and active—be the kingdom of God. 

              Do you believe that?  Are you ready to do it?  Are you ready to be it?  Now is the time–let’s do it. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds, not by emotion, not through experience, but by knowledge.  The renewing of your mind because knowledge is power and ignorance is powerlessness.  I hope that the power of the Holy Spirit rises up in you and that you will come to know and understand as you’ve never known before who and what you are.  Who it is that’s in you, the capacity that you’ve got in God, and the commission that’s yours as kingdom.

Much to the disappointment of many, pigs are on the unclean list. Modern day science, however, has shown time and again the wisdom in commanding us not to eat swine.)
  9. Hebrews 7:12 – A Change in the Law (Video: 23:43 minutes long. Some argue that Hebrews 7:11-12 where it indicates there has been a change in the law means that the Torah has been done away with, nullified, and no longer applies. A careful examination, however, shows that it means no such things and only supports the difference between a heavenly priesthood and the Levitical earthly one.)

Reveals the lost history of Parthia, a massive Asian empire which was the equal of Rome, lasted five centuries and produced the Magi who visited the Christ Child.

EXCERPT from Chapter 3, Pages 123-151

HIS CHILDHOOD YEARS (BIRTH TO AGE 12)

Much has been written about the life of Jesus Christ, the historical person whose name is attached to the many different denominations of Christianity that exist today. In fact, so much has been written that one might wonder whether anything truly new could be written about this one life. As the reader will see, new facts about the life of Jesus Christ can be ascertained by combining the accounts of the Bible with secular historical accounts and traditions about the time in which He lived. This chapter is not intended to be a complete history of the life of Jesus Christ. It will cover those aspects of His life and times which have not been generally known.

The prior chapter dealing with the Parthian Empire discussed historical events shaping the world into which Jesus Christ was born. When some surprising information about His life is added to the history contained in the previous chapter, it can be seen that Jesus Christ actually played a role in the great power politics which occurred between the empires of Parthia and Rome. The Bible hints that He could have played a much larger role in the political affairs of that era if He had chosen to do so.

Did Jesus Really Live?

There is no doubt that the person, Jesus Christ, actually lived in Palestine at the beginning of the first century A. D. While some skeptics doubt this fact, this chapter will begin by offering firm evidence that Jesus Christ was a real, historical person.

Josephus, a Jewish historian of the first century A. D., regarded the life of Jesus Christ as an established fact. In Antiquities of the Jews, Josephus wrote:

“there was about this time, Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man, for He was a doer of wonderful works, — a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews, and many of the Gentiles. He was Christ; and when Pilate [Pontius Pilate, Roman Procurator of Judea], at the suggestion of the principle men among us, had condemned him to the cross…He appeared to them alive again the third day, as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him; and the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.”1

In this account, written shortly after Christ died, Josephus not only gave us a powerful witness that Jesus Christ truly lived, but also provided an independent corroboration of many of the biblically-discussed events of His life. Josephus refers to him as “a wise man,” and wonders whether He was more than a mere man because of the “wonderful works” He did. That a non-Christian, Jewish historian of the apostolic era writes of the miracles of Jesus as actual facts offers contemporary support to the Bible’s accounts about them. Josephus agrees with the testamental writings that Jesus was sentenced to be crucified by Pontius Pilate at the behest of the Jewish Sanhedrin, “the principle men among us.” Josephus also acknowledged that Jesus Christ fulfilled many prophecies of the Hebrew prophets about the Messiah, and even refers to His resurrection as an historical fact!

Josephus’ reference to Jesus as “the Christ” acknowledges that Jesus was the Messiah, “the anointed.” Since a non-Christian source so close to the actual time of Christ has confirmed these facts of His life, the musings of modern skeptics questioning Christ’s existence are without merit. Josephus could speak with eyewitnesses of Jesus’ life; modern skeptics are almost two millennia removed from the events, and their writings are merely speculative. Jesus Christ did live, and the writings of Josephus substantiate the Bible’s claims of His performance of supernatural deeds as well as His being raised from the dead.

Roman secular sources agree with Josephus. Celsus, an anti-Christian writer of the Roman Empire in the second century A.D., wrote: “It was by magic that He [Jesus] was able to do the miracles which He appeared to have done.”2 Here a Roman opponent of Christianity grudgingly acknowledges the reality of Christ’s “miracles,” which he labels as “magic.” However, Quadratus, writing in approximately 117-134 A.D., “urged people to believe in Jesus because the effect of His miracles continued up to the present — people had been cured and raised from the dead, and ‘some of them…have survived even to our own day.’”3 Tacitus, the famous Roman historian, writing about the Christians just decades after the death of Christ, stated:

“Nero fabricated scapegoats — and punished…the notoriously depraved Christians (as they were popularly called). Their originator, Christ, had been executed in Tiberius’ reign by the governor of Judea, Pontius Pilate.”4

Tacitus’ comment about Christ appears as a mere aside in an overall account of events in the reign of Nero. It is particularly compelling evidence that Jesus Christ really did live! Tacitus was no fan of Christ or Christianity, and he had no “axe to grind.” His account that “Christ” was a real person crucified by Pontius Pilate is highly credible as Tacitus refers to it as an official act of Pontius Pilate within His overall accounting of Rome’s activities.

Clearly, Roman accounts confirm that Jesus Christ lived, and that He was executed in Judea during the administration of Pontius Pilate. Even His detractors acknowledged that He performed supernatural deeds. Whatever your views about Jesus Christ, we begin with the fact that He, indeed, lived and died when the Bible states that He lived and died, that He performed marvelous deeds, and that He made a major impression on the civilization of His day.

Let us now review the historical setting into which Jesus Christ was born. The Roman and Parthian Empires were both powerful, well-established “superpower” rivals at the time Jesus was born. Rome ruled the Mediterranean region, and Parthia ruled Asian lands from modern Syria to the Indus River. Palestine was located within the Roman Empire, but was close to the Euphrates River constituting the Parthian border.

Five decades before the birth of Jesus, Rome and Parthia fought several battles with one being fought near Antioch of Syria (very close to Palestine).5 In about 40 B.C., the Parthians launched a major assault which drove the Romans out of Asia! For three years, 40-37 B.C., Palestine was within the Parthian Empire and was ruled by a Jewish vassal king of the Parthians named Antigonus. At that time King Herod, the Roman king of Judea, fled from the Parthians in fear of his life. While the Parthian-sponsored rule of Antigonus was brief, it was apparently popular with the Jews. When the Parthians withdrew across the Euphrates, Antigonus, with Jewish support, attempted to maintain himself as king of the Jews, but was defeated by Herod. Mark Antony, the Roman leader famous for his dalliance with Cleopatra, ordered Antigonus beheaded, and Josephus records that this was done to compel the Jews to accept the hated Herod as their king.6 Mark Antony afterward led a massive invasion of Parthia in 37-36 B.C., but his army was utterly defeated by the Parthians.7

To help modern readers gain a frame of reference for these ancient events, these Roman-Parthian wars were more recent events for the people at the time Jesus was born than World War II and the Korean War are to modern readers. Parthian rule over Palestine was, therefore, vividly remembered by many in Jewish society as being preferable to Roman rule.

Parthia’s victory over Mark Antony led to a long period of peace between Rome and Parthia, with the Euphrates River serving as the border between their two vast empires. This prolonged period of peaceful relations lasted from 36 B.C. until 58 A.D.,8 including not only all of Jesus Christ’s life, but also the early period of the Apostolic Church as well. Rawlinson records that it was an established Roman policy not to provoke a Parthian war during that period of time so long as both empires agreed to coexist on separate banks of the Euphrates River. Rawlinson comments on this peaceful interlude as follows:

“It is a well-known fact that Augustus left it as a principle of policy to his successors that the Roman Empire had reached its proper limits, and could not with advantage be extended further. This principle, followed with the utmost strictness by Tiberius, was accepted as a rule by all the earlier Caesars…”9

As long as the Caesars wanted peace with Parthia, Roman officials along Parthia’s border, such as King Herod and Pontius Pilate, knew they risked their positions and lives if they entangled Rome in an unwanted war with Parthia.

Without this period of Parthian-Roman detente, it would have been impossible for some of the events of Jesus Christ’s life to have occurred, as we shall see. The first such event was the coming of the Magi, or “Wise Men” to pay homage to Jesus. We read of this event in Matthew 2:1-12 , which becomes more important when considered in the overall context of Roman-Parthian relations.

Parthia’s Magi Visit Jesus (and Frighten Jerusalem)

As discussed in the previous chapter, the Magi were powerful members of the Parthian bicameral body that elected Parthian monarchs and wielded great influence within the empire. One assembly was composed of members of the royal family (the Arsacids), and the other consisted of the priests (the “Magi”) and influential Parthians of non-royal blood (the “Wise Men”). The Magi and Wise Men were jointly known as the Megistanes.10

Matthew 2:1  states that “wise men from the east” came to worship Jesus. The term “Wise Men,” which appears in Matthew 2:1 , is not a generic description of these visitors, but was the proper title of Parthian Megistanes. The Greek word translated “wise men” is “magian,” literally meaning “Persian astronomer or priest,”11 from which we derive the word “Magi.” Parthia governed Persia at the time of Christ, so the “Wise Men” cited in the Bible were Parthian nobles and/or priests. While traditional Christian accounts of this episode celebrate the coming of “the three wise men,” the Bible does not limit the number of visiting Magi-Wise Men to three men. Indeed, biblical events and the realities of that time argue for a much larger contingent of Parthian Magi.

Since we saw in previous chapters that the Parthians were descended from the ten tribes of Israel and that their priests were likely descended from the tribe of Levi, it is likely that this delegation of Magi consisted of leading members of the ten tribes of Israel. Because there were numerous Jews of the tribe of Judah in Parthia’s empire, they may have been represented as well. Consequently, the delegation of Magi could easily have consisted of at least ten or twelve men representing the various tribes of Israel.

Also, the Bible confirms that the Magi did not visit the young Jesus in the manger at Bethlehem as most nativity scenes depict, but rather visited Jesus in a house somewhat after His birth. Matthew 2:11  states that this visit of the Magi took place in a house (not at the manger) when Jesus was old enough to be called “a young child.” Luke’s version of Christ’s birth (Luke 2:8-40 ) mentions the shepherds’ arrival at the manger, but makes no mention of any Magi visiting Christ while He was “in the manger.”

Matthew 2:8  adds that Herod sent the Magi “to Bethlehem” after conferring with the Jewish hierarchy about the prophesied location of the Messiah’s birth. They cited Micah 5:2  that the Messiah would originate in Bethlehem, and they were likely familiar with Daniel 9:25-26  which predicted that the arrival of the Messiah was due at that time. Herod privately met with the Parthian delegation, and enquired when “the star” which they followed had first appeared. He apparently learned that this period of time was almost two years because he killed all male children in Bethlehem under two years of age in an attempt to kill the Messiah, whom he regarded as a competitor for his position as king of the Jews.

Although the Bible tells us that “the star” appeared to the Wise Men almost two years prior to His birth, this offers inexact information in determining how old Jesus was when the Wise Men came to him. The Wise Men were prominent people in Parthia when “the star” appeared, and they had to make a very time-consuming journey to reach Judea. It took time to prepare the costly gifts to present to the Messiah, set their affairs in order for a long absence, organize and equip a caravan, obtain an armed escort for protection and make the slow, lengthy journey to Judea in a caravan of pack animals. Since the “star’s” appearance was not necessarily timed to coincide exactly with the time Jesus was born, He may have been a few months (or up to two years) old at the time of the Magi’s arrival.

Consider also that Matthew 2:1-3  states:

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. Saying, where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod the king heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.” (KJV)

The arrival of the Magi’s caravan in Jerusalem was a very public affair because “all Jerusalem” was “troubled” by their arrival. What was it about the Magi’s caravan that scared the Roman leaders and the whole city of Jerusalem? The Magi, a delegation of high Parthian officials, came to Jerusalem in a caravan loaded with costly treasures and escorted by a strong force of armed Parthian soldiers! Since the Magi were high officials of the Parthian government, they would routinely travel with a substantial escort of Parthian soldiers to guarantee their protection. Since they were traveling with many costly treasures to present to the newborn Messiah, their escort may have been unusually large.

The Magi’s caravan would have included large numbers of servants, animal-handlers, cooks, etc. for such a long journey. These people alone would have constituted many hundreds of people! Given the fact that many high Parthian officials and very expensive treasures were in the caravan, there may have been many thousands of Parthian soldiers escorting the caravan! This is not an overstatement.

Josephus records that treasure caravans bringing expensive offerings to Jerusalem from Jews living in Parthian territory did so with “many ten thousand men” as escorts.12 In ancient times, traveling with expensive items was dangerous. There was danger not only from brigands, but also from local satraps who might use their armies to conquer a treasure train passing through their territories. If Jewish commoners from Parthia were allowed to travel to Jerusalem with the equivalent of several infantry divisions as escorts, would an important delegation of Parthia’s ruling class and a treasure train of gifts have been accompanied by any fewer armed escorts? If the Parthian column had included “many ten thousands” of soldiers, it would have justified the widespread fear in Jerusalem caused by their arrival. In the previous chapter, we learned that ancient Chinese historical accounts recorded that the Parthians sent 20,000 cavalry just to escort a Chinese ambassador into Parthian territory.

Plutarch records that Surenas — a Parthian military commander and, no doubt, a member of the Megistanes — traveled on routine business in a caravan of cavalry, servants, and attendants the size of “a baggage train of 1,000 camels…at least ten thousand men.”13 If one Parthian leader traveled with so large a caravan on routine business within Parthia, how large was the caravan of the Magi — a whole delegation of Parthian nobles carrying great treasures to worship a “new-born king?” It was large enough to frighten the whole city of Jerusalem!

The Wise Men coming to Jesus were not bringing just a few samples of gold and other precious things that they carried in their personal saddlebags. They were coming to worship a royal-born child, so they likely had a whole train of pack animals loaded with “gold, frankincense and myrrh!”

Their caravan was so huge that it was a “cause celebre” in Jerusalem. The whole city was in an uproar over their arrival, and that argues for a very visible and impressive Parthian caravan arriving in Jerusalem. The sheer size of the caravan, its treasures and its escorts awed King Herod and the whole city to the point they were all “troubled.” This indicates that the Parthian caravan had so many armed escorts that many feared it was an invasion force coming to besiege Jerusalem and start a new Roman-Parthian war. However, their reason — coming to visit a royal-born Messiah — could have electrified a city of Jews who intensely wanted the Messiah to come and free them from Roman rule! The Jewish hierarchy understood the Parthians were looking for the Messiah as they quickly looked for Messianic prophecies to locate the city of His birth.

After their consultations with Herod and high Jewish officials, the Parthian delegation traveled to Bethlehem to worship Jesus and present their gifts to him. By this time, Matthew 2:11  states Jesus and Mary were living in “a house,” so they were no longer staying at the manger. The Magi’s journey to Bethlehem would have been closely followed by Herod’s spies.

Joseph was then warned by an angel to flee quickly into Egypt (Matthew 2:13 ) to avoid Herod’s impending slaughter of Bethlehem’s young male children. Since Herod’s edict applied only to Bethlehem, there would have been no need for Joseph, Mary and Jesus to flee unless they were still in Bethlehem. Since Joseph and Mary actually lived in Galilee (Luke 2:4 ), the fact that they were in a house in Bethlehem indicates that this must have been weeks after Jesus’ birth while Mary was regaining the strength to make an overland trip back to Nazareth. Their flight to Egypt took them completely out of Herod’s area of jurisdiction.

Herod made the mistake of assuming the Messiah would be born to a family native to the Bethlehem area. Since Luke 2:39  states that Joseph, Mary and Jesus returned to Galilee not long after Jesus was born, it seems apparent that the stay of Joseph, Mary and Jesus in Egypt was very brief. Historical sources disagree on the year of King Herod’s death, but there is persuasive evidence that Herod died soon after giving his cruel order to murder the boy babies of Bethlehem. Matthew 2:14-19  states that Jesus and His parents returned from Egypt as soon as Herod was dead, and the account implies their stay in Egypt was brief.

This author acknowledges that there are differing scholarly and historical viewpoints concerning the year of Jesus Christ’s birth. While many people assume that Jesus Christ was born in a theoretical “year zero,” scholarly options for the year of Jesus’ birth focus on the time frame of 5 B.C. to 2 B.C.

It is significant that Jesus’ parents were faithful to God’s law requiring circumcision on the eight day (Leviticus 12:2-3 ), and to Jewish custom by making an offering to God at the Temple in Jerusalem to consecrate their firstborn male child. (Luke 2:21-24 ) This is an important observation as it shows Jesus was raised by a Jewish family that devoutly obeyed God’s laws.

When the Parthian column arrived at Jerusalem, the Parthian Magi came directly to King Herod, quite open about their reasons for being in Roman-occupied Palestine. They informed Herod that they had come to worship “He that is born king of the Jews.”

It is a tribute to the power of Caesar’s policy that the Roman-Parthian peace be maintained that war did not result from this statement, for Herod could easily have taken it as an insult. He could have flown into a rage, and yelled “How dare you ask to see another ‘king of the Jews’ besides me; I am king of the Jews!” That Herod swallowed his gargantuan pride, and meekly answered the Parthians is quite noteworthy. This is a tribute not only to Caesar’s policy to maintain the peace, but also to recognition that a sizeable Parthian army had come to Jerusalem as escorts of the Magi. Herod’s meek response to the highly provocative question of the Parthian officials does imply that he was intimidated by the many Parthian soldiers who accompanied the Magi.

Because the whole city was “troubled” by the Parthians’ arrival, the presence of so many Parthian soldiers surely sparked rumors in Jerusalem that a new Parthian-Roman war was imminent. Herod may even have suspected that the Parthians’ question was designed to provoke an incident, which would lead to an outbreak of hostilities and his removal from the throne. Herod and all Jerusalem was surprised, but relieved to learn that the Parthian Magi and soldiers had arrived with peaceful intent. Herod may have been expecting to hear an ultimatum for the surrender of Jerusalem to Parthia when the Magi were ushered into his presence.

Some observations must be made about the “star” which led the Magi to Jesus. Some have proposed that this star was a comet or a celestial phenomenon although the biblical accounts indicate that this was not the case. The biblically-described “star” moved, leading the Magi over a long east-to-west route from Parthia to Judea, and Matthew 2:9  states that it finally “stood over where the young child was.” Simple logic confirms that no comet or celestial phenomenon in the sky could possibly pinpoint a single city, much less “stand over” an individual child on the earth’s surface! Nevertheless, that is what the biblical “star” did.

The Bible periodically uses the word “star” to represent angels (Job 38:7 , Revelation 1:20 ), and there is good reason to believe that the “star” which led the Parthian nobles to a specific child in a specific house in Judea was an angel of God. Nothing else makes sense. Only an angel, a spirit being, could literally “stand over” the baby Jesus to designate one specific child to the Parthian nobles.

Also, nothing in the biblical account indicates that this “star” was visible to anyone other than the Magi-Wise Men! Matthew 2:2  states that the Magi saw “the star,” but the context argues no one else ever saw it. Verse 7 relates that Herod asked the Magi when “the star” appeared to them, indicating no one in Judea was aware of any such “star.” If a striking celestial object had appeared in the sky, Herod and his astrologers would already have known the exact date and hour on which it had appeared.

After leading the Parthians to Judea, the “star” disappeared, forcing the Parthians to ask Herod for directions. After the Magi left Herod, the “star” again appeared to them, led them directly to Bethlehem (Luke 2:9 ), and finally “stood over” one specific child, Jesus. Verse 10 states the Magi rejoiced that the “star” had again appeared to show them where to go! Obviously, a “star” which appeared, disappeared and reappeared for the Magi (but which was apparently not seen by any other humans) had to be an angel. Supporting this fact is that Luke 2:8-15  records that the birth of Jesus was announced to shepherds by angels speaking to them out of a heavenly light which accompanied their appearance. God also used an angel to warn Joseph to flee to Egypt. Since God used angels to direct the movements of persons in the events surrounding Christ’s birth, it would have been completely consistent for God to also send an angel to guide the Magi’s movements.

Having found Jesus, the Magi worshipped him, offering costly gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense. They were then warned by God in a dream (Matthew 2:12 ) not to return to Herod, resulting in the prompt exit of the Magi and their many escorts from Judea. When Herod realized that he had been fooled, he wrathfully killed all the young male children of Bethlehem in a vain effort to kill the Messiah. However, there is no indication that Herod made any attempt to overtake or punish the Magi. As high Parthian nobles, they had “diplomatic immunity,” and Herod dared not anger Caesar by provoking the Parthians. Also, Herod’s garrison troops could have been vastly outnumbered by the size of the Magi’s military escorts.

There is another important aspect of this remarkable episode. While it is not surprising that Jewish leaders during Herod’s reign were sufficiently familiar with the prophetic writings to pinpoint for Herod exactly where the Messiah would be born, it is surprising that God was working so closely with members of the Parthian ruling class! This makes no biblical sense unless: (A) the Parthians were descended from the ten tribes of Israel and (B) the Magi (Parthian priests) included some Levites. During His ministry Jesus Christ asserted that He had not been sent to the gentiles, but only to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 15:24-28  shows the reluctance of Jesus to assist a gentile.

Throughout the Old Testament God worked almost exclusively with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. It was not until after the death of Christ that gentiles were given equal access to the God of Israel. The fact that God was working intimately with the Parthian nobility — sending them angelic messages, giving them divine messages in dreams — confirms that the Parthians had to be descended from the ten tribes of Israel which had migrated into Asia.

The fact that some of the Parthian ruling classes were apparently worshippers of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is most revealing. God obviously considered these Parthians to be “righteous” men under the terms of His laws or He would not have been dealing with them so personally. That educated Parthians were ready to visit and worship the Messiah at the time of Christ’s birth indicates they were also familiar with the prophecies of the Old Testament. Who but transplanted Israelites would have been looking for the Messiah at that time?

Although we are jumping ahead in the narrative, consider the events of Acts 2:9  which states Parthians were among those who made pilgrimages to Jerusalem for the Feast of Weeks, known to Christians as Pentecost Sunday. Verse 9 also mentions “Medes, Elamites, and dwellers in Mesopotamia” as being present at this feast, and all these regions were provinces of the Parthian Empire. We know that portions of the ten tribes had been relocated to “the cities of the Medes,” so the presence of devout visitors from Media most likely designates people from the ten tribes of Israel who still lived in Media. Interestingly, verse 9 also mentions “dwellers…in Asia” were present. The word “Asia” has clouded origins, but the Encyclopaedia Britannica states, “It is probable that it [“Asia”] has an Assyrian or Hebrew root, and was used first…with a specific or restricted local application, a more extended signification having eventually been given it…”14

As briefly mentioned in chapter two, one of the Scythian tribes was called the “Asii” (or “Asiani”).15 Since the “Asiani” were one of the Scythian tribes bearing the name of Isaac, the Sacae or Saka, the Bible’s reference to “Asians” attending the Feast of Weeks could indicate that Scythians were also present in Jerusalem at that time. This further indicates that the Parthians and Scythians were the displaced members of the “lost ten tribes of Israel.” The non-Israelite populations of Asia had no cultural interest in the worship of the God of Israel; only the ten tribes of Israel would retain such a custom.

It was not unusual for large pilgrimages originating in Parthia to travel to Jerusalem to worship the God of Israel. Josephus’ statement that caravans from Parthia arrived in Jerusalem under the protection of “many ten thousand men”16 was noted earlier. These must have been magnificent treasure trains to have warranted the protection of a sizeable army. Such huge protection of a sizeable army. Such huge “offerings” going to Jerusalem from Parthia indicates that significant numbers of people within the Parthian Empire worshipped the God of Israel. This meant that, at the time of Jesus and Herod, there was a great deal of travel and trade between the Parthian Empire and the Roman province of Judea. It also shows that there was a strong sense of community between Judea and many regions of the Parthian Empire. If a caravan of Parthian commoners could be escorted by “many ten thousand men,” how many escorts would accompany a caravan of Parthia’s nobility?

The Parthian nobility did not “travel light.” Plutarch records that Surenas, a high Parthian noble, had an entourage of ten thousand men when he traveled “on his own affairs” on routine business. Just one Parthian noble was accompanied by such a huge and imposing caravan when he traveled on routine business! Think how much larger would have been the caravan of a group of perhaps ten or twelve Parthian nobles, the Magi, travelling, not on routine business within Parthia, but through dangerous terrain with rich treasures and into Roman territory! Parthians believed in large numbers of armed escorts for VIPs. When an ambassador came to Parthia from China, an escort of 20,000 armed Parthian cavalrymen greeted him!18

Now you can understand why the whole city of Jerusalem was frightened when the Parthian Magi arrived to look for the young child of royal birth. They were accompanied by a gigantic caravan from Parthia moving toward Jerusalem. This column was escorted by many thousands of Parthia’s military cavalry. Many in Jerusalem feared the Parthians had come to start a war and besiege the city.

The Royal Lineages of Jesus Christ

In an earlier chapter it was shown that the Magi were loyal to one dynasty, the Arsacids, whose members continuously ruled Parthia. It was shown that many rulers of Parthian and Saka kingdoms had names incorporating the word “Phares” (PH-R-S). This indicates that the Arsacids were descended from the seed of David, who was the first king of the Phares family. (Matthew 1:2-6 ) The kings of Judah of the Phares dynasty are listed in I Chronicles 3:9-17 , but verses 18-24 reveals that the royal lineage continued to flourish after Judah’s captivity. Indeed, David’s dynasty was given high status in the Babylonian Empire. (II Kings 25:27-30 ) This post-exilic elevation of the Davidic dynasty in Asia likely led to their serving as vassal kings over captive Israelites under Babylonian and Persian masters. Their later elevation to the throne of Parthia fulfilled the prophecy of Jeremiah 33:17  that David’s descendants would always rule over the descendants of the ten tribes of Israel. This may explain the unshakable loyalty of the Parthians to the Arsacids. With the Parthians being Israelites, and the Arsacids being descended from King David, the Arsacids were the only dynasty in Asia that was racially, historically and culturally related to the Parthian people.

Since Matthew 1:3-17  tells us that Jesus Christ was a descendant of Phares and King David, Jesus was a distant relative of the Parthian ruling dynasty, which also descended from Phares and David. The bloodline relationship of Jesus to the Parthian Arsacids serves as a further explanation for the homage paid to Jesus by the Parthian nobility. It was customary for the Parthian Magi and Wise Men to keep track of male Arsacids in foreign nations. In some cases they sent to foreign nations, Scythia and Rome, to summon male relatives of the Arsacids to come to Parthia to serve as king. As mentioned in the previous chapter, some Parthian rulers killed every male relative they could find in an effort to eliminate potential rivals to their throne. This compelled the Magi to look for distant individuals who had the same bloodline as the Arsacids, the lineage of Phares and King David. At the time of the birth of Jesus, the recent Parthian emperor, Phraates IV, who reigned 37-2 B.C., had killed many male relatives, including his own father and almost thirty brothers.19 Male Arsacids at the time of Jesus’ birth were in very short supply.

When the Magi were led by God to pay homage to the young Jesus, they doubtless learned that Joseph, Mary and Jesus were all related to the Parthian dynasty! Indeed, they may already have known that Jesus was an Arsacid, related to Parthia’s kings. When the Magi came to Herod, they said:

“Where is He that is born king of the Jews?” (Matthew 2:2, KJV )

This statement confirms that the Magi arriving in Jerusalem already knew that Jesus was “royal-born,” and it implies that they knew He was related to Parthia’s kings. If they did not know that fact prior to their arrival, they learned it during their visit with Joseph, Mary and the young Jesus. Indeed, because Phraates IV, the emperor of Parthia, had killed so many of his male relatives, the Magi were surely to find surviving males of the Davidic bloodline.

Consider some important information. When the Babylonians conquered Judah, they brought King Jehoiachin of Judah and many of his royal family to Babylon. (II Kings 24:15 ) After languishing in prison for years, King Jehoiachin was exalted into the position of a favored vassal king in the Babylonian empire. I Chronicles 3:17  reveals that Jeconiah had many sons and grandsons, who very likely also became vassal kings in Asia after Jehoichin died. One of Jeconiah’s sons was “Salathiel” (I Chronicles 3:17 ), who lived in Asia, not Judea. Salathiel, later spelled “Shealtiel,”20 was the father of Zerubbabel. (Ezra 3:2 ) Matthew 1:12  and Luke 3:27  confirm this as well.

Zerubbabel’s name includes the root word “babel,” indicating he was born in Babylon. Zerubbabel was one of the leaders of the group of Jews who left Asia and returned to Jerusalem during the time of Ezra and Nehemiah under the auspices of Persian kings. Zerubbabel had a prominent role in the rebuilding of a Jewish presence in Jerusalem and Judea, and he is mentioned frequently in the books of Ezra and Haggai and once in the book of Nehemiah. Joseph, the human “father” of Jesus Christ was a descendant of Zerubbabel. (Matthew 1:12-16 ) So Jesus Christ was born into a very prominent and famous family in Judea, one known to be descended from the Kings of Judah. Since His royal progenitors formerly lived in Asia and had included vassal kings of the Babylonians, the Parthian Magi may have been very well aware that they were coming to visit a family of Arsacids! Babylon was then ruled by Parthia, so its records were available to the Magi. Because Phraates IV had killed so many males of the royal Parthian dynasty at that time, the Magi were compelled to look outside Parthia’s borders for male Arsacids who were eligible for the throne of Parthia.

Now consider this: Because Jesus was eligible for the throne of Parthia, so was His human father “Joseph.” Christian mythology tends to personify Joseph as an obscure, poor “carpenter” struggling “to make ends meet.” But the possibility exists that he was, in fact, well-to-do. The account in Mark 6:3 , for instance, indicates that Jesus himself was a “carpenter,” but in that day someone in the building trades business was often more of a “building contractor,” involving all aspects of construction. This could possibly have been a very responsible position.

The concept of Joseph and Mary being “poor” partly comes from the “manger scene” of them staying in a lowly manger when Jesus was born. However, they did not stay there for lack of financial resources. When they arrived in Jerusalem, they tried to stay in a lodging house, but everything was “booked solid” in the city. (Luke 2:7 ) As soon as the crowds thinned out, they promptly relocated to a rented “house” in Jerusalem. (Matthew 2:11 ) Also, it takes financial resources to travel. When God warned Joseph to flee to Egypt quickly, he obviously had the financial resources on hand to afford a hastily arranged, indefinite stay in a foreign nation. (Matthew 2:13-15 ) Either Joseph was not a “poor carpenter,” or these funds came from the gifts of the Magi at Jesus’ birth.

Jesus was descended from the kings of Judah through both His father and mother! While Matthew 1 gives Joseph’s descent from Judah’s dynastic line, Luke 3:23-33  gives Mary’s descent from king David. Both Joseph and Mary were direct descendants of King David, the kings of Judah, related to the Davidic kings in Asia and had Salathiel and Zerubbabel as common ancestors. However, Joseph and Mary’s immediate ancestors were descended from two different sons of Zerubbabel. (Matthew 1:13-16 , Luke 3:23-27 ) Some confusion exists on this point, as it is easy to not grasp that Luke 3’s account gives Mary’s lineage. Henry Halley explains this point as follows:

“The commonly accepted view is that Matthew gives Joseph’s line, showing Jesus to be the Legal Heir to the Promises given Abraham and David; and that Luke gives Mary’s line, showing Jesus’ blood descent, ‘Son of David according to the flesh’ (Romans 1:3 ). Mary’s genealogy, in accord with Jewish usage, was in her husband’s name. Joseph was the ‘son of Heli’ (Luke 3:23 ), that is, ‘son-in-law’ of Heli. Jacob was Joseph’s father (Matthew 1:16 ).”21

Jesus was a “blue-blooded” son of parents descended from royalty. This remarkable relationship meant both Joseph and Jesus were distant relatives of Parthia’s kings. Because Parthia could offer the kingship to any relative of the Parthian king line, not just the oldest son or closest relative of the previous king, both Joseph and Jesus Christ were potential claimants to the throne of the Parthian Empire! While the Bible does record Jesus’ royal lineage of the seed of David, it does not specifically mention His relationship to Parthia’s dynasty. However, as we shall see later in this chapter, the Bible implies that this relationship existed.

Since the Magi who worshipped Jesus were members of the body which selected the kings of Parthia and kept track of male Arsacids, they must been ecstatic to find living descendants of King David. The Magi no doubt discussed the possibility that this child Jesus, born under such unusual circumstances, might one day take the throne of Parthia. While the Bible is silent on their future contacts, this delegation of Parthian Magi likely would have stayed in contact with Jesus in future years and monitored the events of His life. If the Parthians had a Messianic understanding, Jesus would have been seen as an acceptable ruler because He was a son of David.

Did the Magi Almost Cause a Roman-Parthian War?

Let us consider that the visit of the Magi to Jesus may have been a factor in a political crisis that almost led to a new Roman-Parthian war. Recall that from 40-37 B.C., Parthia had ruled Palestine and Syria before the Romans drove them back across the Euphrates River. That war ushered in a long period of Parthian-Roman détente which included the entire lifetime of Jesus Christ. However, a great Parthian-Roman war was barely averted in 1 A.D. when a “summit conference” was held between the Parthian emperor, Phraataces, and Caius Caesar, the grandson of Augustus Caesar on an island in the Euphrates River (i.e. neutral territory). Roman sources recorded that:

“The armies of the two chiefs were drawn up on the opposite banks of the river [the Euphrates], facing one another; and the chiefs themselves, accompanied by an equal number of attendants, proceeded to deliberate in the sight of both hosts.”22

This “summit conference” averted war, but how could the Magi’s visit have had a role in this crisis?

The Bible’s account of the Magi visiting Jesus ceases when the Magi left Judea and returned to Parthia, leaving the impression that the issue was concluded. However, if we consider the geopolitical realities of that time, there is no way that the Magi’s exit from Judea ended the matter.

Matthew 2:3  records that Herod and “all Jerusalem” were troubled by the arrival of the Magi. Jerusalem was a commercial city at the nexus of major trade routes, and it commonly received caravans of thousands of people. Three tired Magi arriving from the east would not have made a ripple in the city’s calm. For that matter, caravans from Parthian territory could arrive in Jerusalem with many thousands of armed escorts, and such events did not trouble the city. However, the arrival of Parthian Magi — Parthia’s nobles and priests — in Jerusalem escorted by a large army of Parthian soldiers was unprecedented and unrepeated in the history of the city of Jerusalem. This occurred at a time when Parthia and Rome had a peace treaty, and no major Roman or Parthian military forces had crossed the Euphrates River in over three decades. The arrival of a large Parthian military force in Jerusalem escorting high Parthian officials was militarily provocative and could justifiably be seen by King Herod and the Romans as a treaty violation.

When Parthia had occupied Palestine, it had crowned its own vassal king, Antigonus, as ruler of Judea. When the Magi, Parthia’s official king-makers, came to Jerusalem looking for “a new king of the Jews,” it must have sounded to Herod and the Romans that the Parthians were trying to reassert their claim to Judea and dethrone Herod. Their speaking directly to Herod, who was Rome’s “king of the Jews,” about wanting to find a “new king of the Jews” could be seen by the Romans as very close to a declaration of war, given the region’s history. The fact that King Herod “bit his tongue” and made no rash statement to the Magi and treated them with deference argues that the Parthians must have had an intimidating number of troops at Jerusalem to compel Herod to be so uncharacteristically meek. Since a major Roman-Parthian treaty had been in effect for over three decades, Rome felt unthreatened in the region, and would, consequently, have had only a small garrison in Jerusalem.

Caesar’s decree that no Parthian war be provoked also put Herod in an awkward position. While the Magi and Parthians were in Judea with no harmful intent, there is no way the Romans could be sure this “visit” was benign in nature. After the Parthians left, Herod “blew his stack” (Matthew 2:16 ) and vented his pent-up rage by murdering all male children in Bethlehem under age two. Official reports surely had to be filed with Augustus Caesar in Rome about this highly unusual event.

Herod was justifiably fearful of Parthian intentions in the area. Hadn’t they come to anoint a replacement for him as “king of the Jews?” Hadn’t they also deceived him by leaving the area without his knowledge? Herod’s murderous act in Bethlehem would also have inflamed Jewish residents, and rumors of revolt against the hated Romans would have intensified. Faced with a possible Parthian invasion and/or a Jewish revolt, Herod needed more Roman soldiers in the region. In his reports to Caesar, Herod surely cast himself in a favorable light, warning Caesar that the Parthians had crossed the Euphrates, made a military reconnaissance to Jerusalem to spy out the city’s weakness and were openly talking about crowning a “new king of the Jews.” Because the Parthians’ arrival in Jerusalem had scared the whole city, news of this extraordinary event would have spread quickly along the trade routes. Roman honor had been slighted, and Rome usually responded to such an insult.

However, the Romans could not respond immediately. Rome had been sapped by the costly civil wars between Brutus and Octavian and also Octavian against Mark Antony and Cleopatra. These wars were fought in the eastern half of the Roman Empire, so Rome’s military forces in the east had been depleted and disorganized. Augustus Caesar could not be entirely sure whom to trust with an army, lest another civil war break out in the east. Herod the Great was a firm ally of Augustus, but Herod was soon to die, leaving Augustus with no close ally in the East to whom he could entrust an army. Also, Rome and Parthia were facing a possible conflict in Armenia over succession to the throne of Armenia. In both Armenia and Judea, the issue was whether Rome or Parthia would choose the kings of those nations. Also, Rome had to finance, train and equip an army to fight the Parthians. Rome’s armies under Crassus and Mark Antony had been “clobbered” by the Parthians, so Rome would need extra time to assemble an army to challenge Parthia. Rome’s leadership crisis is described by George Rawlinson as follows:

“Augustus [formerly “Octavian”], from the time that he heard of the Armenian troubles, and of the support given them by Parthia, seems never to have wavered in his determination to vindicate the claims of Rome…[but] hesitated as to the person whose services he should employ…He would have been glad to employ Tiberius; but that morose prince had deserted him and…was living in self-chosen retirement. Caius, the eldest of his grandsons, was, in B.C. 2, only 18 years of age…the extreme youth of the prince caused him to hesitate…and the consequence was that Caius did not start for the East until late in B.C. 1.”23

In other words, Rome’s political situation compelled a delay in responding to Parthia’s real provocation in Judea and apparent provocation in Armenia. The situation was further muddled by the death of Phraates IV, Parthia’s emperor when the Magi visited Jerusalem.24 Since Phraates IV and Herod the Great had died by the time Rome’s army was ready, all the major principals had a fresh viewpoint by the time Rome and Parthia had their “summit conference” at the Euphrates River in 1 A.D.

Although historical accounts mention only the Armenian dispute, it is significant that the Parthian and Roman armies did not confront each other in Armenia. Their confrontation was along the Euphrates River, which had been crossed by the Parthian armed column led by the Magi. Everyone in the region breathed a huge sigh of relief when war was averted. As we shall soon see, if a war had been fought ending the Parthian-Roman detente, much of Jesus Christ’s ministry in Judea could not have occurred.

If the armed Parthian column led by the Magi provoked the Roman-Parthian confrontation in 1 A.D. during which war was averted, a date of 2 B.C. for Christ’s birth is more logical. If He had been born in 4 B.C., there would be too great a gap between that year and the Roman response in 1 A.D. However, a gap from 2 B.C. to 1 A.D. would be understandable given the political realities of that time.

The Bible says little else concerning the early years of Jesus Christ. Luke 2:40  states that Jesus “waxed strong,” and was filled with wisdom and favored by God. Luke 2:41-50  tells us that Jesus, at age twelve, amazed the teachers in the Temple with His wisdom. This passage confirms that Jesus was being raised by His parents according to the Laws of God, as His family annually attended the Passover in Jerusalem, the location of the Temple. Jesus would have been seen by others as a devout, brilliant son of a prominent Jewish family.

Another Coffee Break

Deliver Us From Evil, Part 13

As the sparrow in her wandering, as the swallow in her flying, so the causeless curse shall not alight.”  (Proverbs 26:2, Amplified Version)

How can I curse those God has not cursed? Or how can I [violently] denounce those the LORD has not denounced?” (Numbers 23:8, Amplified Version)

Today I’d like to take a few minutes and share with you some of my own personal experiences in the realm of causeless curses.  Some of what I share you’ve heard me share previously, so bear with me if you’ve read it or heard it before.

Anyway, Good Morning, all you Blessed People!  Sorta got started there a bit different than normal.  Pull up a chair, set a spell, and pour yourself a cup of this good Columbian brew.

By my best recollection, the year was 1980.  The Alaska Pipeline was in full operation and oil was flowing out of the Prudhoe Bay fields at near pipeline capacity.  The economic benefit to America was enormous because we now had a huge source of domestic oil flowing to replace oil we’d been buying abroad.

I was heading up CBN’s operations in Alaska, growing the broadcast ministry of the 700 Club throughout Alaskan communities primarily through the profits from two businesses — Arctic Slope Audio (a retail electronics business) and North Slope Communications (a UHF-VHF business radio communication supplier for government and corporate entities) — and pastoring Inupiat Christian Center in Barrow at the same time.  Wheww!  I look back now and wonder how I kept up with it all.

The business operations and broadcast ministry were both in high gear, but it was the ministry at Inupiat Christian Center that was creating a furor amongst religious people.  We were dealing with some pretty heavy demonic activity in the arctic, and the ministry of deliverance — by itself — provokes controversy.

As the opposition to our ministry in the realm of deliverance increased, our family began receiving hate mail and death threats on a consistent basis.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I answered the phone only to hear a muffled voice on the other end of the line saying something like, “The next time you step out the door, you’re going to get a bullet through the face,” or perhaps, “You’re a dead man, you know.”

My children began to be threatened and attacked.  Debbie — our oldest daughter (and an adopted Eskimo — was shot at six times.  Chris and Melodie were assaulted on numerous occasions on their way home from school.  There were a couple of times when they came home bruised and bloodied after being attacked in the dark (this was during the 66-day dark cycle when the sun never rises).  Young men in their twenties would lie in wait for them knowing the route they walked coming home from school, grab them, pick them up and throw them in mid-air against the side of a building repeatedly, and then run away.

Accusations of criminal activity were being leveled against me.  I’ll never forget the day there was a knock at the door.  When I answered, there were two police officers with guns drawn and pointed at me, demanding to come in and search my home.  Whatever the accusation was, the most mystifying part was the fact that in the process of raiding our bedroom, they took sheets, bedding and clothing, bagged them up and walked out the door without a word.  We never got an explanation, and the items were never returned.  No charges were ever filed.

Driving down the street one day, headed toward our retail business (Arctic Slope Audio), a rifle shot rang out, and a bullet penetrated the van I was driving just inches behind me.  A few weeks later, I was in a construction shack on land we had acquired for building a new church going over the drawings of the planned building with one of the elders in our church.  We were standing in front of a window talking, and suddenly pulled back from each other.  It was an involuntary and spontaneous thing — obviously orchestrated by the Holy Spirit.  As we drew back from each other, the window exploded between us and a bullet narrowly missed me.

I opened the door, looked out, and saw a man standing about 300 feet away with a rifle and scope aimed at me.  I hollered at him, “Hey!  What do you think you’re doing?” and took off running towards him.  It obviously was not what he was expecting and shocked him.  He dropped the rifle as he turned to run in the opposite direction.  He reached down, snatched up the weapon, took off running around the corner to a waiting vehicle and took off.

If I were to say that things were getting pretty intense, you could easily appreciate it.  Pardon me for getting so graphic here, but I’m drawing a picture to help you understand the nature of this spiritual opposition.

It was about the same time as this latter event that Scott Hessek called me from CBN in Virginia Beach.  Scott was the guy who initially hooked me up with CBN in the fall of 1976, and he and I had become pretty close friends.  He called me to let me know that Pat Robertson had just had a guest on the 700 Club who’d returned from a trip to Russia.  During the pre-show discussion (and again after the program had ended), this man had shared how he had learned of a group of men and women — practicing witches, psychics, warlocks, etc. — had decided to experiment with their so-called “psychic” power.

They had a hatred of America and decided to focus a series of curses against America’s economy by specifically targeting the Alaska pipeline.  They were commanding the pipeline to blow up and cursing it on a daily basis.  They were also cursing Christian leaders in Alaska.

Scott said to me, “Brother, I know you’re going through it right now, but hang in there.  God has positioned you for the defense of believers, and to protect the pipeline.  Now you know where the opposition is coming from, and you know how to deal with it.”

It wasn’t much later when I received another phone call — this one from a Pastor Thornton in Kennewick, Washington.  We’d never met, I didn’t know him (in fact, never heard of him), and he didn’t know me.  The Holy Spirit awakened him that morning, gave him my name and phone number and gave him a vision of what I was going through and standing against.  His word to me was something like this, “Brother, we don’t know each other, but the Lord obviously knows you.  You are standing in the gap for God’s people.  The Lord spoke to Ezekiel one day and told him that He was searching for someone who would stand in the gap for His people.  In that instance, He told Ezekiel he had not found anyone.  In this instance, He found you and you agreed.  You are engaged in warfare against the enemy, and God wants you to know you are winning!  Stand fast, my brother.  Stand fast!  The victory has been given you.”

I immediately called our church fellowship together for a week of fasting and prayer.  The following Sunday, we went as a group to the beach and stretched our hands out towards the general direction of Russia.  We spoke with one voice and in full accord, “We cancel out this curse in the name of Jesus and send it back where it came from.  Whatever the Enemy has intended for harm here, we command it to return upon him.”

We then asked the Lord to show up in the midst of those practicers of the occult and display His power and glory in such a manner as to halt their evil activities.

Within a matter of weeks the following events appeared in the local and national news.  The first event was a report that the FBI had learned of a plot to blow up the pipeline.  They caught the conspirators no more than hours or days before they would have created an explosion that would have taken the pipeline out of commission for many months.  The FBI investigators found plastic explosives already in place with radio-controlled triggers set to detonate at various key points.  The plot was interrupted before the devices could be set off.

The next event reported in the news was that there had been a massive explosion on the Siberian oil pipeline.  The destruction was such that it put the pipeline more than a year behind schedule.

The third report came months later.  We heard via some ministers in Russia that the group of witches, warlocks and psychics had broken up.  Apparently the Lord showed up in their midst (we never heard the exact details) in such a way that it scared the living daylights out of them.  Whatever God did, He ended their demonic conspiracy against the USA, against the Alaska Pipeline, and against Christian leaders.

The whole experience ended for me any question of the authority we have in Christ Jesus over the power of Satan — no matter where or how he seeks to employ it.

During the 2008 political campaigns, Flo Ellers sent out an email (and Jim Bramlett forwarded it on to me) concerning the meeting and report that came from Bree Keyton concerning the curses being pronounced upon John McCain and Sarah Palin by those witches, warlocks, shamans and practicers of the occult in Mombassa, Kenya, it brought back a flood of memories of my own experiences in Barrow, Alaska, and the effectiveness we had as a small group of believers in reversing the curses.  Flo was kind enough to send me a CD recorded during Bree’s meeting (I contacted her following the email) and I listened to her report as she detailed her experiences in Kenya.  I realized that it was time to mobilize Christians everywhere to exercise their authority in Christ Jesus.

When Jesus taught the disciples to pray, the very first thing they were commanded to pray was, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

By instructing prayer in this manner, Jesus made it clear that God restricts his involvement in the affairs of men to the way His people pray.  He certainly has the power to come banging out of Heaven and force His will on earth, but that would defeat His objective for a people who love Him and choose His will of their own volition.

Hence, he awaits the praise and worship, the prayers and the intercession of His people acting in concert and agreement with Him so that His will can be enacted on earth (and in earth — us!) as it is already enacted in Heaven.  His Kingdom already rules in Heaven, but He expects us to act in agreement and in accord with His will in order to implement that will on the earth.

We don’t have to be timid at all about reversing curses sent against God’s people, against this nation and against those whom God has chosen for leadership.  The final authority to cancel out those curses is ours.  Let’s go back to the verses with which we began this Coffee Break.  Curses are “causeless” (Hebrew: chinnamdevoid of cost, where innocence exists, for no reason) when we are covered by the blood of Jesus, when we meet God’s conditions, and when we exercise the authority of the Throne of God in accordance with His will.

Take a look at the effort of Balak (Numbers 23), the King of the Moabites, to bring a curse upon Israel.  He was deathly afraid of Israel — particularly after seeing how Israel was destroying nations far more powerful than they.  Balak knew that Israel’s ability to defeat these nations was supernatural, that it came from a God far more powerful than the ones he and the Moabites served.

He decided, therefore, in his ignorance of God and God’s blessing upon His people, that he would find a prophet in Israel who could be bought.  Since that prophet would speak from some (imagined) magical power, whatever curse or incantation he spoke would come to pass.  He would therefore have that prophet pronounce a curse upon Israel.

Folks, this is the root of all curses.  Fear!  Paralyzing fear!  Only those who have an unholy terror of God and His righteousness, and want nothing to do with Him and His people, seek to curse those people who live under the blessing of God.

Why else do you think evil and wicked individuals are attempting to cast spells and curse our President, Donald Trump?  He has boldly taken a stand for righteousness and righteous issues.  Whether he has failings in other areas or not, he has put himself squarely on God’s side.  That makes him the target of those who are afraid of God’s power and authority sweeping this nation and sweeping out the filth that has corrupted our courts, our laws and our government.

When Balaam was seduced by the offers of money, power over men, and the esteem he thought he could get by honoring Balak’s request to curse Israel (prophets were feared in Israel, but not highly regarded, and they lacked the kind of civil authority that appealed to Balaam), he ran into a brick wall…..literally!  Being a prophet, however, he had the anointing of a prophet.  What Balaam didn’t realize was that God’s anointing would not permit him to speak curses against a nation of people in whom — despite their failings and their sins against God — the blessing of Abraham resided.  (See Genesis 12:3)

Any effort to curse the people of God using God’s power and authority would be without cost and without — and this is the important aspect! — reason of guilt because they were answerable to God, and to God alone, NOT to any other nation or people!  Thus, when Balaam stood up to prophesy under the anointing of God, what came out of his mouth was not curse, but blessing.

Rise up, Balak, and hear; listen close to me, son of Zippor; God is not a man that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man that He should feel repentance or compunction [for what He has promised].  Has He said, and shall He not do it?  Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?  You see, I have received His command to bless Israel.  He has blessed, and I cannot reverse or qualify it………….

Surely there is no enchantment with or against Jacob, neither is there any divination with or against Israel.  [In due season and even] now it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What has God wrought!”  (Numbers 23:18-20; 23, Amplified Version)

Numbers 24 then goes on to show how Balaam finally willingly yielded to the Spirit of God and commanded the blessing on Israel that Balak was trying to prevent, and sent the curse that Balak intended back upon the Moabites AND all those nations that were rising up against the people of God!  The following chapter relates the rout of the Moabites in battle and all those who were attempting to curse Israel.

Finally, God’s command to Israel (see Deuteronomy 23:3-6) was very specific concerning Moab and Ammon:

An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever: Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.  Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee.  Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days forever.

Yeowch!!  Pretty strong, wouldn’t you say?  THAT, my friends is how God sees those who attempt to curse His people.

America was founded as a nation under God.  It was founded for the propagation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The efforts of people to curse the prospective leaders of this nation just because they represent righteousness and Godly leadership and Godly principles puts them in the same category as the Moabites and Ammonites.

That gives us the authority as believers in Jesus Christ to send those curses back where they came from and to declare and decree instead the blessing of the Lord upon our President, Donald Trump, and Vice-President, Mike Pence.

Fellow Christians, will you agree with me on this?  Will you stand with us here at River Worship Center against these intended and causeless curses, instead declaring the blessing and favor of the Lord upon our President and Vice-President?

Thank you.

Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus – Part 6
By Dr. Roy Blizzard

Our Father which art in Heaven hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  What does it mean thy kingdom come?  Kingdom?  We’ve talked a little bit about kingdom in our seminar together and we’ve said that for the Rabbis and for Jesus kingdom was always in the NOW.  It’s present tense.  But, we might ask ourselves the question, what is the difference between kingdom of heaven and kingdom of God as it is used in the New Testament.  (Matt. 5:3 – “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”)  Here we have the term used kingdom of heaven.  (Luke 6:20 – “And he lifted up his eyes upon his disciples and he said, ‘Blessed be the poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.’”)  Parallel passage to Matthew 5.  One is Matthew’s account and one is Luke’s account.  Matthew says kingdom of heaven and Luke says kingdom of God.  What’s the difference?  Is there a difference?  Yes, there is…one of them is Hebrew and the other is Hellenistic.  One is the Hebrew way of saying it and the other is the Greek way of saying it. 

Kingdom of heaven is the Hebrew way of saying Kingdom of God.  The Hebrews had an aversion against using the name of God and as you know they would never use the name of God which was YHVH.  But no self-respecting, religious, righteous Jew would ever speak the name of God.  Only one man, the high priest, was allowed to do this and only on the Day of Atonement as he went into the Holy of Holies.  They even had a rope tied around him when he went into the Holy of Holies and bells on the bottom of his garments so that when he pronounced the name of God and spoke the name of God if he wasn’t spiritually right with God and God struck him dead they could drag him out with the rope.  So heaven is a euphemism for God.  I’ve sinned against heaven means that I have sinned against God.  But it simply has to do with the Jews aversion for taking the name of the Lord their God in a light manner.  You remember, one of the Ten Commandments says thou shalt not take the name of the Lord your God in a light manner.  This may come as a shock to some of you.  That does not mean thou shalt not cuss or use profanity.  It doesn’t have anything to do with it.  Nowhere in the Bible does it tell you that you can’t cuss.  Do you know why?  Because it’s impossible to cuss in Hebrew.  There are no curse words in Hebrew.  Hebrew is the holy language.  No curse words in Hebrew.  If you want to curse you’re going to have to go to Arabic with is very colorful.  You could go to German, English, Russian but you can’t curse in Hebrew so this doesn’t have anything to do with using profanity.  After all, vulgarity, or profanity, is nothing more than just the feeble attempt of the uneducated mind to express itself forcefully anyway.  But the Bible does tell us that we’re going to be judged for every idle words that comes out of our mouth.  There are a lot of idle words that come out of our mouth that aren’t necessarily cuss words.  This particular injunction, or commandment, is that you shall not take the name of the Lord your God in a light manner.  So, the Jews won’t even speak the name of God because he’s so holy and righteous.   Even the word God itself they’ll corrupt slightly to keep from pronouncing the word God (Elohim) they’ll say elokim.  Or if their writing it out in English G-d.  They won’t spell it out because they have an aversion for using the name of God in a way that might be irreverent.  The Jews had all kinds of euphemisms for God like the place, the name, heaven (I’ve sinned against heaven and against thee). Kingdom of heaven means kingdom of God.

But the Gentiles don’t have such an aversion to using the term God, or the name God, so the Gentile way of saying it, or the Greek way of saying it, was kingdom of God.  Kingdom of God and kingdom of heaven is the same thing. 

In Hebrew kingdom of heaven, and I cannot overemphasize this, was always here and now.  The whole idea of kingdom is a development of one passage of scripture that we find in Ex. 15:18.  If I ask you where is the first mention of kingdom in the Bible you’d never get it unless you knew Hebrew and you knew it very well.  The first mention of kingdom in the entire Bible is in Ex. 15:18 where it says, “and the Lord will reign forever and ever.”  What does that have to do with kingdom?  In Hebrew each word is based on a root or stem form.  By adding prefix letters or media letters or suffix letters we build a whole family of words.  So the idea of King, or reigning or ruling, is the root malach from which we get the word king melech from which we get the noun mal koot (kingdom), the very is to lem loch (future tense-third person singular)em loch, the Adonai (the King literally).  “The Lord will King forever and ever.”  There can be no King without a kingdom.  There can be no kingdom without a King.  So this is, in the Biblical text, the first mention of the whole concept of kingdom.  This develops to such a degree that by the time of Jesus the Rabbis hope for the rule, or the reign, of God to be extended over all of the earth.  They understood this concept of king or kingship that it became the principle theme in the Old Testament.  King, the King that was to come.  Are you the one who was to come according to Zechariah 9:9?  Do you remember the king that was going to come to rule and to reign having salvation in his hand?  This idea develops to such an extent that in Judaism to this very day any benediction that contains no reference to the divine kingship is no benediction at all.  So when you look in the Jewish prayer book, over and over, page after page talks about kingdom and kingship all the way through so that every blessing, every benediction, begins, “Blessed art thou O Lord our God, King of the Universe.”  Without the word King the blessing is no blessing at all. 

For the Rabbis kingdom was where God was ruling, or those people who were ruled by God.  Our problem has been, as in the Beatitudes, with this proverbial future.  We read about there shall be, or will be, the kingdom of heaven.  They shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven and all of a sudden we come up with a concept of future tense.  Kingdom is something out there, it’s something that’s coming, it’s something that we’re going to inherit, that pie in the sky by and by.  For the Rabbis kingdom was always in the now. 

Who was it that was to come and prepare the way for kingdom?  John (Matt. 11)  Let’s look at the whole scripture in its context.  Jesus is increasing in his fame, and John is diminishing.  John is sitting in prison languishing and he wants to know if he’s going to get out, so he sends his disciples to Jesus and he says, “I want to know if you’re the habah of Zech. 9:9?”  Jesus sends back, “Isaiah 28, 35, 45, 42, 66.”  And John says, “Well, the time of my departure is at hand.”  Jesus goes on and asks the multitudes concerning John, “What did you go out to the wilderness to see?  A reed shaken in the wind?  No, I tell you a prophet, and even more than a prophet because this is he of whom it was written, ‘Behold I send my messenger before thy face which shall prepare thy way before thee.’ Verily I say unto you, among those born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist. Notwithstanding, he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”  What does that mean?  Does that mean that the smallest person in heaven is going to be greater than John the Baptist?  If John the Baptist was great on this earth he’s going to be great in heaven.  Does that mean that John the Baptist isn’t in heaven?  No, what does it mean?  Then he goes on and says something else very difficult.  “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence and men of violence take it by force.”  Does anyone know what that means?  It’s magnificent.  Jesus is hinting back at a passage in the O.T. on which there was, in his day, a rabbinic midrash, or a rabbinic commentary, and it indicates that Jesus was familiar both with the passage and with the rabbinic commentary on that passage.  The passage to which he’s referring is Micah 2:12, 13.  Let’s look at the picture that Jesus is painting.  I will surely gather all of you O Jacob, I will surely collect the remnant of Israel.  I will bring them together as sheep in a fold, as a flock in the midst of their pasture.  They shall swarm with men and hum with their much noise.  The breaker, destroyer, leader, messiah (what is that talking about?).  It’s the same word that’s used in Matthew 11 translated “men of violence.”  It’s the word ha poretz…poretz is the one breaking down or breaking through.  Notice that he says, “The breaker will go up before them, they will break through passing through the gate and go out through it and their King shall pass on before them and the Lord at their head.”  Look at the picture.  God said, that one day he’s going to gather all of his people together.  He’s going to collect the remnant of Israel and bring them together as sheep in a fold.  As I read that I have the mental image in my mind of Israel, I can close my mind and I can see the rolling hills and I can see the shepherds on the sides of the hills with their flocks and I can see the sheep folds.  I have seen many of these sheep folds and have been in many of them as well as the working shepherd’s caves.  Many times the sheep fold will be built in front of a rock outcropping or in front of a cave in which the shepherd can take his sheep and protect himself and the flock from the elements during the spring and winter months of the year.  The sheep fold, in Israel, is nothing more than a rock fence and it’s built of all sizes of rocks and their just piled up one on top of another.  It’s constructed circular or as a square on front of a rock outcropping or a cave but sometimes in the middle of nowhere in the middle of a field and in the evening the shepherd will bring his sheep into the fold to protect them from the beasts and the elements.  He’ll stay there with them all through the night tending them, caring for them, and then the next morning he’ll go down and knock down a section of the wall and then lead the sheep into pasture.  Jesus, in this pasture, is making a fantastic, exciting commentary on Micah 2:12, 13.  It indicates that he’s also familiar with the Rabbinic Midrash on this subject because the Rabbinic Midrash on Micah 2:12, 13 says that in v. 13 the King is Elijah and the Lord is Messiah.  Jesus goes one in Matthew 11:13, for all the prophets and the law prophesies until John. But if you receive it this is Elijah that is to come.  You see how he’s referring back using this Rabbinic midrash and painting the picture and he says, “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been breaking forth, (God has collected all of his people into the fold and now John the Baptist, the ports, the one knocking down the rocks, knocking down the side of the fold, has gone up knocked down the fold, knocked down the wall, and now I, Messiah, Lord, am leading a noisy multitude into pasture and into victory.  It has nothing to do with violence or men of violence.  “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has been breaking forth and now I, King Messiah, am leading a noisy multitude out into pasture and into victory.”  For Jesus kingdom was those people over whom he was ruling and who were demonstrating his rule in their lives.  “Among those born of women there was none greater than John the Baptist, but he that is least in my kingdom now is greater than he.”  Why?  Because of the commission that he gave to his kingdom and because of the capacity that his kingdom has.  John’s commission was simply to prepare the way of the Lord.  But for those who were ruled by Jesus, who were a part of his kingdom, their commission was something entirely different.  Not only different but much greater in scope, in activity and in power.

How do we know those who are in kingdom?  How do we recognize those that are a part of kingdom?  Matthew 7:16-21, “You shall know them by their fruits.   Do men father grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree brunet forth food fruit; but the corrupt tree brunet forth evil fruit…Every tree that brunet not froth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that says unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”  What does he mean, not everyone that says unto me Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom?  Those who are a part of Jesus’ movement, his disciples, his followers, they always call him Lord.  Those who not a part of his movement, those who are on the outside, always call him Rabbi or teacher.  You can always tell if the person is in the kingdom or out of the kingdom by the way that they address him.  Those in the kingdom call him Lord.  He goes ahead to emphasize that not everyone that calls me Lord, that says unto me Lord, Lord, is going to be a part of my kingdom.  But he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  How does that fit in with everything that he said about the Beatitudes, attitudes for kingdom people to be in?  Blessed are the poor in spirit for these are the people over whom God is ruling.  These are those who constitute the kingdom. These are those who make up the kingdom.  What did we say poor in spirit meant?  Those who have repented of their sin, who are thoroughly penitent, who had turned to God and loved his word and kept his commandments.  Not everyone that says unto me Lord, Lord is going to be part of the kingdom but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  By their fruits will you know them?  What are to be the fruits of kingdom people?  That gets us back to the discussion that we had briefly in our last session, “How do I lay up for myself treasures in heaven?”  Not by playing church, not through faith, not through experience, not through emotion, not through ceremony or ritual, not through giving of your tithes, not by being religious. How do I lay up for myself treasures in heaven?  By ministering to the needs of people on a very basic fundamental level of need out there.  What is the commission of kingdom?  To go into the cities and villages and lay your hands on the sick and they’ll recover.  Take the authority of the devil and he’ll flee from you, but more than that to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to care for the sick, and the orphans and the widows and the strangers, to visit the prisoners and to minister to the needs of the people on a very basic fundamental level.  This is the commission of kingdom.  God didn’t call us as his people out of the world to form some kind of little bless me club or praise the Lord society.  He called us to be the kingdom of God.   Who and what is kingdom?  Where is kingdom?  You tell me.  The kingdom of heaven is in you.  Is that right?  Is that what the word says?  Who is the kingdom?  You are.  What is the kingdom?  It’s what you are.  Who else is in you?  The Bible says, Christ in you, the hope of glory.  Who else is in you?  The Bible says, do you now know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit that is in you?  But you’re not your own, you were bought with a price.  Therefore, glorify God in your body.  It’s no coincidence that all of these terms are used and they all refer to the individual over whom God is ruling. 

Christ in you the hope of glory?  What does that mean?  I can understand that only when I understand who he is.  God.  So if Christ is in me then who is in me?  God.  Eph. 3:16, “May he grant you out of the rich treasury of his glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit himself indwelling your innermost being and personality.  May Christ through faith actually dwell, settle down and abide and make his permanent home in your heart.  May you be rooted deeply in love and found securely in love that you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all of the saints what is the breath and the length and the depth of it.  That you may really come to know practically through experience for yourself the love of Christ which far surpasses mere knowledge without experience.  That you may be filled through all your being unto all the fullness of God.  That is may have the riches measure of the divine presence and become a body holy filled and flooded with God himself.”   That’s the capacity that the man of God has.  With Christ in you becoming a body holy filled and flooded with God himself.  You say, that’s wonderful, but unless you know who God is you haven’t got the faintest idea as to the real implication of that.  We know who Jesus Christ is, he’s God.  But who, and what is God?  Who is it that’s in me? God.  I have the capacity to be a body holy, filled and flooded with God.  But who’s God.  What is God?  If I ask you to tell me in one word the word that best describes the essence of God.  That is, what he is, we’re not talking about a characteristic of deity but essence.  Love is not the answer.  Spirit is not the answer.  The essence of deity what is it?  Power.  What is another word for power in English?…energy.  God is energy, pure unadulterated energy.  That’s the reason that we call him omnipotent.  It’s not that energy is God, but God is energy, power.  You want to want to know what kind of energy?  What kind of power?  The Bible says that my faith we understand that the totality of the universe as we now see it was created ex nihilo out of nothing simply by the word that went forth out of his mouth.  Let there be light and there was light.  Pure unadulterated energy.  I made a study a little while ago on the subject of energy.  I found out that there are two different kinds of energy.  One kind is called potential and I can best describe it by telling you that I like to hunt.  I hunt a lot of times with a bow.  I have a compound bow with a 55 pound draw, and when I put an arrow in it and I pull back to draw and it breaks over I’ve got 55 pounds of stored energy.  That arrow isn’t going to go anywhere or do anything, and not going to hurt anything until I let it go, but when I let it go and that bow flips that arrow out and it strikes the target heat is generated, energy is created and the potential energy is converted to kinetic energy and kinetic energy is both creative and restorative and that’s the difference between a miracle and healing.  Energy is both creative and restorative.  It will create and it will restore.  That’s the difference between miracle (creative) and a healing (restorative).  Who is it that in us?  Christ in us the hope of glory.  Who is Christ?  God.  We have the capacity to become a body wholly filled and flooded with God himself and he has given us his holy spirit, his power to empower us to do the work to which kingdom was commissioned.  His Holy Spirit is within us which means that all of the manifestations of the spirit should be flowing in us and through us to minister life and health to the body.  We’ve been confused about this.  We’ve talked about the 9 spiritual gifts.  I want the gift of healing and pray for it.  You can pray for the gift of healing from now until the day that you die and you’ll not get it unless you need to be healed because there isn’t such a thing as a gift of healing except for the person who has been healed.  Nowhere in the Bible are these 9 things that we see recorded in 1 Cor. 12 called spiritual gifts.  They are the 9 ways in which the Holy Spirit manifests himself in the life of every believer.  Every believer who is a saved, born again, spirit filled with the Holy Spirit living and dwelling within them, child of God has the capacity for all 9 of these manifestations of the Holy Spirit to be working in them and through them to affect life and health to the body.  That’s who we are.

Sign Petition Banner

Thank Wendy’s for its amazing pro-adoption work helping children

Sign our petition thanking Wendy’s and DTFAWhile Planned Parenthood frequently purports to be about “choice,” just .03 percent of their services included adoption referrals. The abortion giant is frequently the recipient of lavish media and corporate support, while truly pro-life efforts like adoption get overlooked.

As Live Action News explains, while celebrities are loudly screaming their support for Planned Parenthood and abortion, there are others who are quietly doing the hard work of truly helping vulnerable children, women, and families in need.

And instead of donating to Planned Parenthood like Netflix, Ben and Jerry’s, Converse, and many other far-left companies are doing, Wendy’s has launched a campaign to donate up to $500,000 toward adoption programs.

Since 1992, fast-food chain Wendy’s and its partner, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, has at its heart the interests of children who are in foster care waiting to be adopted. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national, nonprofit public charity dedicated exclusively to finding permanent homes and loving families for the nearly 155,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems.

In fact, when you go into a Wendy’s restaurant, you will always see numerous signs, posters and food packaging promoting the adoption of children nationwide through its foundation.

As an adoptee himself, Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas always held the cause of adoption close to his heart. He credited his summers in Maine with his grandmother as teaching him the value of hard work and perseverance. He also credited his time eating in local restaurants with his father after his adoptive mother died with making him value restaurants as a place of sharing and family closeness.

These core values led Thomas to found one of the most successful fast food chains in the U.S., and his success in business spurred him on to philanthropic advocacy in founding the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

 

Cartoon Network Pride Happy

Sign Petition to Cartoon Network!

Alerting all parents! Cartoon Network celebrates LGBTQ pride month by using one of its extremely popular shows to encourage children to “stand proud.” As most are aware, LGBTQ activists have designated June as “pride month” to celebrate alternative sexual lifestyles and gender identities, and Cartoon Network tweeted last week celebrating the movement. “We want to wish everyone a HAPPY PRIDE and encourage all of our LGBTQ+ fans to stand proud all year long!” the network, which is owned by Warner Bros., tweeted along with emojis representing a rainbow flag, a heart, and a unicorn. The tweet also included a picture of characters from its popular show Powerpuff Girls and the hastags “pride,” “happypride,” “#powerpuffyourself,” “#pridemonth,” and “#powerpuffgirls.”

However, Twitter is not the only place where Cartoon Network is promoting LGBTQ pride. Cartoon Network is also doing so through its online store and some of its cartoon characters.

Last year, it is believed that Cartoon Network’s animated show Steven Universe became the first children’s show to feature a same-sex wedding proposal. The proposal was between female characters named Sapphire and Ruby.

Additionally, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Timeseries aired a scene in its series finale last year that showed two female characters kissing each other on the lips. The scene confirmed years of speculation that the two were lesbians.

Cartoon Network claims to be “the best in original, acquired, and classic entertainment for youth and families.” However, many parents would disagree with the network pushing an agenda that contradicts their own beliefs on sexuality and marriage. 

Another warning for all parents:

On a side note, but definitely worth mentioning, after nearly a decade, the popular My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series is coming to an end. In the upcoming episode, “The Last Crusade,”written by Nicole Dubuc, set to debut this Saturday, June 15, at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Discovery Family. It has already aired overseas. The long absent parents of the young pegasus Scootaloo are at last introduced, finally answering a longstanding plot point that left many wondering. But that’s not the only significance of the episode. Early in the story, Scootaloo and her friends, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, known collectively as the Cutie Mark Crusaders, meet with Scootaloo’s current caretakers, Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty.

It soon becomes evident that Holiday and Lofty are not siblings or even in-laws but in fact a romantic lesbian couple. In case there’s any doubt, Michael Vogel, a writer/producer for MLP and former vice president of development for Hasbro, confirmed their relationship via Twitter: “When I say ‘cute couple,’ I’m saying that Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty are a cute couple. Yes.”

 

Drag Queens and Libraries

PETITION: Tell U.S. libraries to stop pushing ‘drag queens’ on our kids!

LifeSite and Personhood Alliance are combining forces to combat the new and twisted phenomenon of the “Drag Queen Story Hour” taking over America’s libraries.

You might think that if you live outside of a big, liberal city like San Francisco or New York, your children will be safe at your local library, right?

Think again.

A cross-dressing man is coming to a library near you, to teach your child about “gender fluidity,” and YOU are actually helping to fund him with your state, local and federal tax dollars.

Believe it or not, there is a well-orchestrated, subversive plan being promoted by the American Library Association, to promote a phenomenon known as “Drag Queen Story Hour” (DQSH) to small-town American libraries, in order to “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and give kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”

Get the inside story on this plan and how your tax dollars are being used to push it forward.

When groups of concerned parents mobilized in Texas, Ohio, Kentucky and South Carolina against this perverted and subversive campaign, the American Library Association responded with orchestrated training strategies on how to how to be a “secret librarian advocate operative.”

Please click on the link below to find out more about this infuriating, but true story.

Then, please SIGN this petition to Loida Garcia-Febo, the President of the American Library Association, to tell her to immediately stop the subversive efforts by the American Library Association to pervert the children of small-town America.

LifeSiteNews and the Personhood Alliance will hand-deliver the petition to the American Library Association’s Washington DC offices, and tell them to focus on promoting literacy and not homosexuality and perverted notions of sexuality.

If you live in the DC metro region (Washington DC, Maryland or Virginia), we are also asking you to contact us, to join a prayer vigil on Sunday, June 23 at 1:30 pm outside of the St. Mary’s County Public Library at 21677 FDR Blvd, Lexington Park, MD 20653.

We will assemble and prayerfully stand in opposition to this perverse attempt to corrupt our children. Please join us!

Again, please join us in telling the American Library Association, and those promoting the corruption of our children, that we will NOT go along with their subversive activities. 

1. SIGN and SHARE this petition so that we can deliver the signatures to the American Library Association’s Washington DC offices.

2. If you are close to the DC metro area, come to our peaceful, prayer vigil on Sunday, June 23 at 1:30 pm in Lexington Park, MD.

May God bless you and protect our children.

Israel_s Lost Empires

ISRAEL’S LOST EMPIRES

Was ancient Israel a land-locked national or a seacoast trading empire? In this fascinating study, Steven Collins details the little-known story of Israel’s ancient empires. Examines the diaspora of all 12 of the tribes of Israel from the Promised Land and documents two huge ancient empires which they founded.

CHAPTER 4 EXCERPT: THE SCYTHIAN “SACAE”

THE ASIAN “SONS OF ISAAC”

There is a common misconception that the ten tribes of Israel “disappeared” when they migrated into Asia. Nothing could be further from the truth! For many centuries, ancient historians knew both who the Israelites were, and where they went. They were not “lost” at all.

Consider one such example. Flavius Josephus was a Jewish military commander, a Pharisee, and an historian of the first century A.D. He wrote this about the ten tribes of Israel who were in Asia:

“…there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers.”1 (Emphasis added)

Eight centuries after the ten tribes of Israel migrated to their new Asian homelands,Josephus knew that their population had become too numerous to estimate, and that the Euphrates River served as their western border.

Ezra 4:1 records that contingents of only three tribes (Judah, Levi and Benjamin) returned to Palestine in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah. They were the forebears of Judean Jews living in Judea at the time of Christ and Josephus. Judah, Levi and Benjamin were part of the former kingdom of Judah (II Chronicles 11:1, 14), not the kingdom of Israel (i.e. “the ten tribes of Israel”). Josephus affirmed that while contingents of Jews lived in Palestine, the ten tribes of Israel stayed in Asia. This is important because it refutes the misconception that the ten tribes migrated back to Palestine and were included with the Jews at the time of Christ.

The Ten Tribes of Israel Become “the Scythians”
Scythian HorsemanJosephus asserts that the ten tribes of Israel were still in Asia in the first century A.D. His comment that the ten tribes were an “immense multitude” indicates we should expect to find very large masses of Israelites in Asia in the first century A.D., not isolated little remnants. An inevitable result of nations having very large populations in the ancient world was the achievement of political and military power, and we will see that the Asian Israelites had attained such power long before the time of Christ. Josephus’ comment that the Israelites were “beyond Euphrates” tells us that the Asian Israelites were then located north and east of the Euphrates River. As the reader will see, it is not difficult to locate the Israelites in Asia.

The Bible contains promises concerning the Israelites that must be mentioned before the historical evidence is examined. A prophecy in Hosea 1:6-10, stated that although God would “utterly take away Israel [from Palestine],” he would, thereafter, make their population “as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered.” This prophecy about an innumerable population for the ten tribes had been fulfilled by the time of Christ, as Josephus confirmed. This illustrates an important lesson: God always keeps His promises and fulfills His prophecies.

Also, the Bible promised that the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) would perpetually be known by a particular name. Genesis 21:12 records God’s promise to Abraham that:

through Isaac shall your descendants be named.” (RSV)

God’s “covenant” blessings upon Abraham were inherited by Isaac and Jacob, whose name was changed to “Israel.” Genesis 48:14-20 shows that Jacob- Israel passed on these blessings to the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. Therefore, while the name of “Isaac” could generally apply to any of the Israelite tribes, the term would most specifically identify the descendants of the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. Therefore, we should look for the Israelites in Asia or elsewhere to be known by various forms of the word “Isaac.” As we shall see, secular history confirms that many large population groups in Asia did come to be known by variations of the name “Isaac.”

Chapter two discussed several waves of migrations into Asia by the ten tribes of Israel. The captivity of the Israelites who withstood a three-year Assyrian siege in Samaria is the most famous, but it is actually the least significant of the Asian migrations. Assyrian cuneiform records state that a mere 27,290 Israelite captives were taken from Samaria.2 The other two migrations involved far more people.

About twenty years before the fall of Samaria, the tribes of Gad, Naphtali, Reuben, and one-half the tribe of Manasseh were carried captive into Assyria (II Kings 15:29, I Chronicles 5:26). While the captives from Samaria represented only one city in the territory of the tribe of Ephraim, this earlier captivity involved the entire populations of at least three and one-half tribes. The Israelites taken in this captivity can be conservatively estimated in the hundreds of thousands. Also, as we learned in chapter two, many Israelites fled the final Assyrian invasion, voluntarily migrating into the region of the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. Since this body of Israelites had a military escort of 220,000 soldiers as they migrated,3 it easily numbered over one million people.

Many inhabitants of Israel’s capital city, Samaria, were taken to the cities of the Medes (II Kings 17:6). We will begin our search by looking for a group of people who were not physically present in Media before the fall of Samaria. One historical account records that Assyria’s King Esarhaddon in 674 B.C. was confronted by an alliance of “Mannaean, Median, and newly-arrived Cimmerian forces.”4 (Emphasis added) The “newly-arrived” Cimmerians were the Israelite Samarians who had been settled among the Medes only a few decades earlier. Webster’s New World Dictionary states that “Cimmerian” is pronounced “Si-mer-e-en;”5 the consonants of “Samarian” and “Simereen” are a perfect match. That these “Cimmerians” were “recent arrivals” in Media adds weight to their identification as Israelite captives from the city of Samaria.

The Israelites who migrated to the Black Sea region became known as “Scythians.” The Encyclopedia Britannica records the Scythians as first being present in Eurasian locations in the seventh century B.C.6 The Encyclopedia Americana adds:

“The Scythians…are those tribes that occupied this territory [the region north of the Black Sea] from about 700 B.C.”7 (Emphasis added)

Another account of the Scythian arrival in the Black Sea region is found in The Scythians, by Tamara Talbot Rice, which states:

“The Scythians did not become a recognizable national entity…before the eighth century B.C…By the seventh century B.C. they had established themselves firmly in southern Russia… Assyrian documents place their appearance…on the shores of Lake Urmia [just south of Armenia] in the time of King Sargon (722-705 B.C) a date which closely corresponds with that of the establishment of the first group of Scythians in southern Russia.”8 (Emphasis added)

These accounts are all consistent with the historical records cited in chapter two that the Israelites migrated to the Black Sea area toward the end of the eighth century B.C. Rice’s account indicates the Black Sea Scythians arrived in southern Russia via a route that included territory south of Armenia in 722-705 B.C. That is exactly the time period the Israelites were migrating from their homeland, and it also indicates the Scythians originated in a former homeland south of Armenia. That place was Palestine, the location of the old kingdom of Israel.

Later in this chapter, we will see other Scythians came to live far to the east of the Black Sea Scythians. Tamara Rice’s book includes a map showing that the burial sites of these “related clans” of the Scythians have been found as far eastward as the Pazirik/Altai region where the old Soviet Union joined the western edges of China and Mongolia.9

The opening of a burial mound of these eastern Scythians was the subject of an article in the October, 1994 issue of National Geographic magazine. It had the following commentary:

“The Pazyryks thrived in these steppes…in the sixth through the second centuries B.C. They were horsemen …[and] shepherds…Dozens of such tribes rose on the steppes of Eurasia in this era, creating a deceptively uniform culture labeled Scytho-Siberian…The Greek historian Herodotus faithfully detailed much of the life of the Scythians, a powerful, semi-nomadic people who lived north of the Black Sea between 800 B.C. and 100 B.C.”10

A female mummified in the burial vault must have been a prominent Scythian as she was buried with several horses and grave goods with gold ornamentation. An earlier excavation in the area had yielded “two skeletons with European features” who were buried with weapons and ten horses. These eastern Scythians were one of many clans on the steppes related to the Scythians of the Black Sea region. The fact that some of their burial mounds yield skeletons “with European features”11 will become increasingly important later in this chapter and in the next book in this series.

The Scythians were frequently called the “ Saka,” or “ Sacae.” The Encyclopedia Britannica states that the terms:

Saka [ Sacae] and Scyths…were regarded as synonymous.”12 (Emphasis added)

The Greek story of Xenophon mentions the “Sacians” of Asia had “suffered very severely” at the hands of the Assyrians,13 and a Roman writer, Pliny, stated the Scythians were “descended from slaves.”14 These accounts can only describe the Israelites: they bore the name of “ Isaac” (“Sac”-ians), the Israelites truly were descended from a race of slaves (freed from Egypt in the Exodus), and they had suffered the complete destruction of their old kingdom of Israel at the hands of Assyria.

It is very significant that the Scythians were known as Sacae or Saka. As cited earlier, Genesis 21:12 promised that Abraham’s future descendants would be known by the name of Isaac. The ancient Hebrew language did not list vowels; therefore, the name Isaac would be represented by the consonants SC or SKSac-ae is the word Isaac with the Latin plural “ae” attached. That these “Sacae” are recorded as living near the Black Sea soon after many Israelites migrated there supports the contention that they were relocated Israelites.

Speculation that the Scythians originated in the interior of Asia is clearly refuted not only by the above account of Tamara Rice, but also by the images found on Scythian artifacts. A Russian art book (translated into English) reproduces many examples of Scythian artwork showing Scythians with bearded, Semitic features, not Mongoloid features.15 The McClintock and Strong Cyclopedia reproduces images of a Scythian family and a Scythian horseman, footman and general.16 All depict Scythians with obvious Caucasian and Semitic features, indicating that their origin was in the Fertile Crescent, not the interior of Asia.

Not all ancient people bearing the name “Scythian” were descended from the ten tribes of Israel. The term “Scythian” was sometimes used generically to describe any tribe with a nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyle. Some “Turanians” were also called “Scythian” or “Sacae.” The Turanians may have had a Japhetic descent, with the term “Turanian” perhaps based on Tiras, one of the sons of Japheth. (Genesis 10:2) The Dniester River, which empties into the Black Sea, was anciently called the “Tyras” River, further supporting such a conclusion. It is possible to confuse the “Sacae Scythians” and “Turanian Scythians,” as George Rawlinson observed:

“The term ‘Scythic’ is not…ethnical. It designates a life rather than a descent, habits rather than blood. It is applied by the Greeks and Romans to Indo-European and Turanian races indifferently, provided they are nomads, dwelling in tents…living on the produce of their flocks and herds…”17

Two races were called Scythians: the Indo-European “Sacae” and the “Turanians.” The terms “Sacae” and “Saka” do indicate an Israelite ethnicity, but the term “Scythian” can sometimes include non- Israelites as well.

In 653 B.C., the Medes and Cimmerians allied with the Scythians under a leader named “Phraortes” against the Assyrians. They lost their war with the Assyrians (and Phraortes died),18 but it is significant that the Scythians were anti- Assyrian. Once it is understood that these Scythians were Israelites, their antipathy toward Assyria is understandable. The Scythians and Cimmerians were kinsmen; the Encyclopedia Britannica calls the Cimmerians a “Scythian tribe.”19 Here we see Israelite tribes joining the Medes to fight the Assyrians mere decades after they left Palestine.

Their leader’s name, “Phraortes,” was a Hellenized form of “Phares,” a name of the tribe of Judah. Genesis 49:10 promised that dynasties of kings would come from Judah, and Jeremiah 33:17-22 prophesied that the descendants of King David, also of the Phares line, would become very numerous and would perpetually rule over descendants of “the house of Israel.” Jeremiah prophecied this after the house of Israel (the northern ten tribes) had migrated to Asia. The name “Phraortes” indicates that descendants of King David were ruling Asian Israelites soon after their removal from Palestine, showing that God had not forgotten His promise to David’s progeny. (II Samuel 7:8-17) One of the last kings of Judah, Jehoichin, was taken to  Babylon as a captive (II Kings 24:8-15), but a later Babylonian king “set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon.” (II Kings 25:27-30) Jehoichin, David’s descendant, became a high vassal king in the Babylonian Empire. He fathered many sons (I Chronicles 3:16-24), making the royal seed of King David numerous in Asia. The kings of Babylon apparently placed these royal descendants over captive Israelites, fulfilling God’s promise to King David that his seed would rule over the ten tribes of Israel! Almost from the beginning, these royal descendants were the kings of the Asian nations and empires of the Israelites.

What happened to the Israelites — the tribes of Reuben, Gad, Naphthali and one-half of Manasseh — who were carried captive by the Assyrians about twenty years before Samaria fell? It is recorded that the “ Scythians” were not only located in the Black Sea region, but also in Mesopotamia, just east of Assyria. The Encyclopedia Britannica states that: “A Scythian power had grown up in the old kingdom of Ellip, to the east of Assyria…[by] Ecbatana.”20 History records that Scythian powers developed in two locations: one by the Black Sea and the other east of Assyria.

The Scythians located east of Assyrian in modern Iran were descended from Israelites taken captive by the Assyrians, while the Sacae Scythians in the Black Sea region were descended from Israelites who fled there to avoid Assyrian captivity. The captive Israelites soon displaced the nation of Ellip into whose region they had been placed. What nation had been displaced by the Israelites who migrated to the Black Sea and Caucasus Mountains? This region was previously called Urartu. William Culican’s The Medes and the Persians states that Urartu was “enfeebled by Scythian incursions.”21 Tamara Rice’s book, The Scythians, records:

“in the area roughly corresponding to present-day Azerbaijan, the kingdom of Urartu had crumbled. The Scythians, under their king Partatua…firmly established themselves in… Urartu itself, where they set up their capital at Sakiz…”22 (Emphasis added)

A Scythian capital was named “Sakiz,” honoring the Israelite patriarch, Isaac. Who else but the relocated ten tribes of Israel would name an Asian city in honor of Isaac? Their territory was in the modern region of Armenia and Azerbaijan, between the Black Caspian Seas. One of their first kings was named “Partatua.” Ancient languages often interchanged the letters “p” and “b.” Try saying these letters yourself; they have very similar sounds and are called “labial consonants.” When you change the first “p” in the Scythian king’s name to a “b,” you have “Bart-atua.” The first syllable of his name “Bart-” preserves the root word of “B-R-T,” the Hebrew word for “covenant.” As the reader knows from previous discussions in this series on Israelite history, the consonants “B-R-T” are a distinctive identifier of the tribes of Israel.

The Encyclopedia Britannica refers to the Scythians as “newcomers” to the area in the seventh century B.C.,23 and William Culican’s book, The Medes and the Persians, states that Scythian numbers and influence grew in the seventh century B.C.24 Since the Israelites migrated into Asia at the end of the eighth century B.C., their rise to prominence in the seventh century B.C. is very consistent with biblical accounts.

Scythian Culture and Society
Historians tell us the Scythians were agriculturists who both planted crops and followed their herds (hence the word “nomads”). The old Israelite lifestyle from the days of Abraham revolved around agriculture, and they both planted crops and were herdsmen. Ezekiel 27:17 records the Israelites had been food exporters in the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. A Jewish historian cited by Col. Gawler in an earlier chapter stated that the Israelites fled through Armenia from the Assyrians, and went “with their flocks, and turned nomads.”25 The Scythians carried on the Israelite traditions of being agriculturists, food exporters and “nomads” dwelling in portable dwellings as they followed their flocks and herds. Zenaide Ragozin’s book, Media, records:

“Some seventy years after the time of Herodotus we find from contemporary evidence that 600,000 bushels of Scythian corn went to Athens alone each year.”26

If 600,000 bushels of grain went to one Greek city each year in the fifth century, B.C., one wonders how much the Scythians exported to the world as a whole.Herodotus confirmed that the Scythians grew corn for use as an export crop,27 and the production of a voluminous grain crop shows the Scythians were skilled farmers, not “hunter-gatherers.”

Scythian agriculturists had civilized tastes. William Culican, in The Medes and the Persians, states:

“…it was to the Scythians that Achaemenid objects had greatest appeal. The dinner services, upholstered beds and thrones designed for the mess tents of Persian officers on field duty admirably suited the…nomadic Scythian leaders. Scythian tombs were elaborately furnished and…the Scythians not only had a close relationship with the Medes and Persians but supplied from their Ural territories much of the gold on which Persia depended.”28

Tamara Rice also wrote concerning the Scythians:

“…their wealth and love of finery won them the good will of the great Hellenic merchants established along the shores of the Black Sea…the Scythians already displayed an extraordinary ability to appreciate and assimilate the best in the art of their day.”29

The above accounts are significant. A nation that possessed wealth, enjoyed fine tableware and upholstered beds, and exhibited an “extraordinary” appetite for the fine arts is one that prizes the material comforts of a civilized society. The fact that Scythia had a well-developed gold mining, refining and exporting industry indicates that not all Scythians were farmers or ranchers. Their gold mines indicate that some Scythians were involved in industrial pursuits, and their success in the gold trade confirms that they possessed the technological expertise to process gold ores into beautiful finished products. These Scythians had originated in the kingdom of Israel’s “Phoenician” homeland. The Israelite-Phoenicians were a very civilized, prosperous people who enjoyed a civilized society and excelled in international commerce. It is not surprising that their Asian descendants exhibited these same attributes. Like their Scythian progeny, the Phoenicians had been excellent goldsmiths. The McClintock and Strong Cyclopedia states that the Phoenicians:

“…manufactured all kinds of beautiful vessels and ornaments in gold, silver and ivory…”30

The Scythians manufactured some of the ancient world’s most elegant works of gold art. Books have been written which display their artistic abilities.31 Their civilized tastes and sophisticated skills indicate that their origin was in the Mesopotamian/ Mediterranean region, not the wild steppes of deepest Asia. A comment by Georges Charriere, author of the bok, Scythian Art: Crafts of the Eurasian Nomads, also confirms the Scythians migrated into the Russian steppes from the south, not from the north.

Speaking of the “characteristic animal style of Scythian art,” Charriere wrote:

“There is no ground for concluding that this style had its birth in the Altai or in any other region of Siberia. Along with the other elements of the Scythian culture, it was derived from the cultural heritage of the ancient East and originated in the peripheral regions of Assyria, among the Iranian-language tribes settled in the north of Iran.”32 (Emphasis added)

Charriere is speaking specifically of the Scythians who lived east of the Caspian Sea. While the Black Sea Scythians descended from Israelites who fled to that region to avoid Assyrian captivity, the eastern Scythians evidenced an origin in “the peripheral regions of Assyria” and “the north of Iran.” The Bible records that the Israelites who did go into captivity were settled “in Assyria” (II Kings 15:29) and in the “cities of the Medes.” (II Kings 17:6) The “cities of the Medes” were in “the north of Iran.” Here we see strong cultural evidence that the eastern Scythians were originally subjects of the Assyrian and Medo- Persian Empires, and moved into the Russian steppes from the south. These Scythians were the Israelites who had, indeed, been captives in the Assyrian Empire and were transplanted to the north of Iran. When the Assyrian and Medo- Persian Empires fell, these Israelites were freed from their captors, and they migrated into the steppes east of the Caspian Sea. II Kings 15:29 and 17:6 identify these captive Israelites who became the eastern Scythians as the tribes of Naphthali, Gad,Reuben, one-half the tribe of Manasseh, and the Ephraimites who had been besieged in Samaria.

Georges Charriere also notes linguistic evidence that the Scythians migrated into the Russian steppes from the south, not from northern Asia. He wrote:

“…the steppes as far as the Altai Mountains were inhabited by Scythians or Sacian tribes — Persian-speaking peoples of Central Asia, similar to the Scythians in their economic organization, way of life and culture.”33 (Emphasis added)

Obviously, if these Scythians had originated in the northern, interior regions of Asia, they would not have been a “Persian-speaking” people. The fact that their many tribes spoke a language of the Persian Empire confirms not only that the Scythians had once lived within the Persian Empire, but that they had lived there for a considerable period of time. This would be an expected trait of the Israelite captives who had lived within the Assyrian and Medo-Persian Empire for centuries.

It was mentioned earlier that the “Scythians” included both the Sacae and the Turanians. In addition to the civilized Scythians, there were ignorant and uncouth tribes on the steppes. Herodotus, a Greek historian of the fifth century B.C., affirmed that the civilized Scythians lived close to some very uncivilized tribes, which he described in these words:

“the Man-Eaters, a tribe that is entirely peculiar and not Scythian at all…[and] the Black Cloaks, another tribe which is not Scythian at all.”34

Herodotus confirms the civilized qualities of the Scythians and the backwardness of “non- Scythian” tribes in the following blunt words: “The Euxine Pontus [the Black Sea]…contains — except for the Scythians — the stupidest nations in the world.”35 (Emphasis added)

In these accounts, Herodotus used the term “Scythian” in an ethnic sense to designate the civilized “Sacae.” However, as noted above, other writers sometimes used the term “Scythian” to describe all the tribes living in the Russian steppes.

Colonel Gawler cites Epiphanius as stating “the laws, customs, and manner of the Scythians were received by other nations as the standards of policy, civility, and polite learning.”36 He also cites the following from book viii, iii, 7 of Strabo’s Geography:

“Aeschylus too…says, ‘but the Scythians governed by good laws…’ And this is still the opinion entertained of them by the Greeks; for we esteem them the most sincere, the least deceitful of any people, and much more frugal and self-relying than ourselves.”37

Strabo was a Greek writer during the first century B.C. Modern students are taught to think the Greco-Romans were the most civilized people of the ancient world, yet Strabo’s account offers the opinion that the laws, frugality and self-reliance of the Scythians excelled that of the Greeks! Strabo even declares that the Scythians excelled all nations in their sincerity and honesty. Strabo, a prominent Greco-Roman, seems to assert that the Scythians were the most civilized people of his time.

There is an additional record that the Scythians of South Russia had their origins among the Semitic nations of the Mideast. Zenaide Ragozin’s Media states:

“… Scythians was not a race name at all, but one… used for all remote, little known, especially nomadic peoples of the north and northeast, denoting tribes…of Turanian as of Indo-European stock: to the latter the Scythians of Russia are now universally admitted to have belonged.”38 (Emphasis added)

The term “Scythian” came to represent a lifestyle as well as a racial group. However, the highly civilized Scythians of South Russia were known to be Indo-European,” not “Turanian.” This adds more confirmation that their origin was among the Indo-European nations south of the Black Sea, not among the uncivilized nomads in the interior of Asia.

The evidence clearly indicates that the Scythians moved into the Russian steppes from the south, not from the north! A large body of the ten tribes of Israel moved from Palestine to the Black Sea region of south Russia when Samaria fell. Even as the Israelites were herdsmen and exporters of grain, so were the Scythians. Even as the Israelites had been skilled in metallurgy from the time of Solomon, so were the Scythians. Even as the Israelites had civilized tastes, so did the Scythians. The Israelites were descendants of Isaac, and the Scythians bore the name of Isaac (“Sac-ae” or “Sak-a”). The Israelites fled into the Black Sea regions in about 721 B.C., and the “Scythians” were first noted in the Black Sea regions soon after this date. There is no doubt about the origin of the Scythians: They were displaced Israelites building a new homeland in the Black Sea region and in parts of the Russian steppe.

Herodotus records that the Persians called all the Scythian tribes “Sacae.”39 Latin writers substituted an “x” for the “c” or “k” in Sacae/ Saka and called them the “Saxoi” or “Saxones.”40 This provides even more evidence that the Sacae Scythians were the of the ten tribes of Israel. The Israelites were known by these names before they ever left Palestine!

Assyrian records mention the rebellion of the Esakska, who called themselves “BethSak” or “House of Isaac” in their own country.41 Here we have an Assyrian confirmation that the Israelites were known by the name of Isaac (the root word: “Sak”) prior to their migrations into Asia. The word “beth” is a Hebrew word meaning, “house.”42 The Israelites continued to bear the Hebrew racial names “Saka” or “Sacae” after their migration into Asia. The prophet Amos cited the term “House of Isaac” (i.e., Beth Sak”) as describing the ten-tribed northern kingdom of Israel just decades prior to the fall of Samaria and the Israelites’ migrations to Asia. (Amos 7:16)

The biblical book of Jeremiah confirms that many of the ten tribes of Israel migrated to the Black Sea region. Jeremiah 3:3-12 contains a message from God to both the Jews (Judah) and the ten tribes of Israel. This message was given a century after the ten tribes of Israel were conquered by the Assyrians. In verses 6-10, God warned that Judah was repeating the sins that had caused the kingdom of Israel to fall. In verse 11, God states: “Backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.” This confirms that the Jews and the northern ten tribes were still separate entities, and that the ten tribes were in a better standing with God than were the Jews at the time of this message! That is consistent with accounts presented in an earlier chapter that the people of the ten tribes who migrated to the Black Sea region had implemented religious reforms. Jeremiah 3:12 directs this statement to the ten tribes of Israel:

“…proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful…” (KJV)

If all ten tribes of Israel were taken captive to Assyria, this message to the Israelites would have been sent “to the east” since Assyria was located east of Jerusalem. Jeremiah 3:12 acknowledges that most of the ten tribes of Israel were then located not to the east but to the north of Jerusalem. If you check a map or globe, you will confirm that the Black Sea region is located due north of Jerusalem. Jeremiah’s message to the ten tribes (“Israel”) was directed toward the Black Sea region where the Scythians (the “Sacae”) lived.

Many have the mistaken impression that God forsook the ten tribes of Israel when they migrated from Palestine. Not at all! Jeremiah directed a favorable message from God to them about a century after Samaria fell. Hosea 1:10 records that God promised to vastly increase the population of the ten tribes of Israel after he expelled them from Palestine. Josephus’ quote at the beginning of this chapter indicates God had fulfilled that prophecy by the first century A.D. In Jeremiah 51:5, it is also stated:

“For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the Lord of hosts…”(KJV)

This was written circa 595 B.C., long after the ten tribes went into captivity. God was still guiding the destinies of both the ten tribes of Israel and the Jews even after the ten tribes left Palestine. How could he forsake them? They were the “birthright” seed of Abraham, and God’s covenant with Abraham’s descendants was unconditional! In greatly expanding the ten tribes’ population, God was keeping His promise to Abraham! Genesis 13:16 and 48:14-16) God also kept His promise in Genesis 21:12 and Genesis 48:14-20 that Abraham’s descendants would be known by the name of Isaac. Because this promise primarily applied to the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, many of the Scythians known as the “Sacae” would be from those tribes.

God did not give the great “birthright” blessings of the Abrahamic covenant to the tribe of Judah (the Jews). These birthright blessings were permanently given to the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh in Genesis 48. The one Abrahamic blessing specifically given to the tribe of Judah was the promise that dynasties of kings would emerge from that tribe. (Genesis 49:10) This was fulfilled when King David’s descendants founded many dynasties of kings, as will be examined more extensively in the next book in this series.

The famous “Amarna Tablets” are very ancient records of letters from Canaanite rulers to Egypt’s Pharaoh desperately calling for help against the powerful invasions of a people called the “Haberi,” “Habiru,” etc. These invaders were the Hebrews, as documented in David Rohl’s book, Pharaohs and Kings. (see the first book in this series) Mrs.Sydney Bristowe, in Oldest Letters in the World, wrote the following about the Amarna Tablets:

“The great importance of the Amarna Tablets has not been recognized because apparently, the translations have been unwilling to admit that the Israelites are mentioned upon them…the name Haberi…is hardly seen in these translations, yet that name, appears frequently in the tablets and leading philologists certify that it stands for the Hebrews (Israelites)… Another name mentioned upon the tablets is Saga which is said to be identical with Haberi (Knudtzon, Die El-Amarna Tafeln, p. 51), and is proved to be so by the fact that it occurs upon the Behistun Rock in Persia where, according to Sir Henry Rawlinson, it represents the Israelites (the Sakai or ‘House of Isaac’).”43 (Emphasis added)

Mrs. Bristowe’s book cites a German book and Sir Henry Rawlinson in support of the conclusion that the Amarna Tablets identify the Israelites. Dr. H.R. Hall, a former Keeper of the British Museum’s Department of Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities, wrote in his book, The Ancient History of the Near East:

“It seems very probable that the SA-GAZ’…and…the Khabiru who devastated Canaan in Akhenaton’s time are no other than the invading Hebrews…In my own view, the probabilities are all in favor of the identification.”44 (Emphasis added)

Both the above authors agree with David Rohl that the Habiru were the Hebrews, and that the Amarna tablets record a Hebrew invasion of Canaan. Bristowe and Dr. Hall favor the time of Joshua for this invasion, while David Rohl assigns it 400 years later to the time of King David’s conquest of all the cities of Canaan. This author finds Rohl’s evidence persuasive. Accounts that the Hebrews were known as “Saga” or “Sagaz” indicate an obvious similarity to “Saka” or “Sacae” (“g” and “k” are closely related guttural consonants). This confirms that the name of Isaac, so firmly stamped on the Scythians, had also been applied to the Israelites in Palestine at least since the time of King David.

Israelite Customs among the Scythians

The inscriptions on the Behistun Rock also link the Scythians to the Israelite/Phoenicians. The Persian ruler, Darius, proclaimed a victory (circa 516 B.C.) via a huge inscription on a mountain near Behistun (or “Behistan”). It depicts Darius receiving the leaders of captive nations who are being led before him via ropes tied around their necks.45 The Encyclopedia Britannica states that the last captive in line is “a Scythian wearing a tall, pointed cap.”46 Herodotus was cited above as stating that the Persians called all the Scythians “Sacae,” so a cultural characteristic of the Sacae was the wearing of tall, pointed caps.

That only the Scythian captive wore this hat identifies it as a trait unique to the Scythians. Herodotus commented on this Scythian headgear: “The Sacae, who are Scythians, have high caps tapering to a point and stiffly upright, which they wear on their heads.”50

Wearing a tall, pointed cap was also a cultural trait of the Israelite-Phoenicians. Evidence of this Phoenician trait has been found in both the Old World and in ancient America. In the Old World, an example of Phoenicians wearing such caps is found on a relief from Persepolis as shown in the Encyclopedia Americana.47 Dr.Barry Fell’s America B.C. shows a terra-cotta figurine found in an American burial mound depicting a Phoenician with a tall cap, the “characteristic high-crowned hat, the hennin, worn on formal occasions.”48 Israelite high priests wore tall hats called miters. (Exodus 28:37-29:6) The miter had a “forefront” (Exodus 28:37), and a blue decoration “high upon the miter” (Exodus 39:31), verifying that it was a tall cap. This type of headgear was adopted by Israelites in leadership positions. Harper’s Bible Dictionary shows tall, pointed hats as an example of “Hebrew royal attire.”49

The matching headgear of the Israelite-Phoenicians and the Sacae- Scythians is one more cultural factor supporting the conclusion that the Scythians were the displaced ten tribes of Israel. Further evidence of the Israelite origins of the Scythians is found in this comment of Herodotus  about them:

“They make no offerings of pigs, nor will they keep them at all in their country.”51

Such a prohibition is very consistent with the well-known Hebrew custom of forbidding the use of swine for either consumption or sacrifice because it was an “unclean” animal. (Deuteronomy 14:7-8) Who else but displaced Israelites would be observing — if readers will pardon the oversimplification — a “kosher” lifestyle in the Russian steppes? Herodotus also records that one of the Scythian kings was named “Saulius.”52 Given the Hebrew-Israelite background of the Scythians, the namesake of this Scythian king was Saul, the first Israelite king. (I Samuel 9)

Herodotus also records that “The Scythians themselves say that their nation is the youngest of all the nations…[and] from their first king…to the crossing of Darius into Scythia was, in all, one thousand years…”53 Col. Gawler analyzed Herodotus’ record as follows:

“Now Darius’ expedition against the Scythians was about 500 B.C., and 1000 years before that brings us to the time of Moses.”54

Significantly, the Scythians traced their origin as a nation to the approximate time of Moses. It was after the Exodus, under Moses, that the Israelites truly became a nation with their own distinct culture, sovereignty and laws.

Additional evidence that Scythia was a new Israelite homeland is the appearance of the name of the Israelite tribe of Dan in the Black Sea area. The tribe of Dan was known for giving its tribal name to geographic locations (Joshua 19:47). The rivers emptying into the Black Sea were formerly known as the Ister, Tyras, Borysthenes, and Tanais, but, after the Scythians migrated into the region, their names were changed to the Danube, Dniester, Dnieper, and Don Rivers.

            Collier’s Encyclopedia states: “The names of the…rivers Danube, Dnestr, Dnepr and Don are Scythian…”55

The tribe of Dan was split into two homelands in Palestine: one on the seacoast and one in a land-locked area in the north of Israel. In a previous chapter, we saw evidence that many Danites migrated to Ireland when Israel fell, but the prominence of the name Dan in Scythian areas indicates that other Danites joined the migration into the Black Sea regions. A major Scythian tribe was named the Dahai or Dahae, which may also indicate the tribe of Dan.

One of the most prominent Scythian tribes was the Massagetae, most likely indicating the Israelite tribe of Manasseh. Note the similarity between the Scythian Massa-getae, and the Massae-scyli, a tribe that lived in Carthaginian territory (the Israelite origin of Carthage was discussed in the previous chapter). Manasseh was one of the largest tribes of Israel, so large that it received two territories for its population when Joshua conquered Canaan. As one of the largest tribes, Manassehites logically would have been among the Israelites who founded Carthage, as well as being one of the more recognizable tribes in Scythia.

Guidelines for Permitted Work on the Shabbat: A Practical Guide What You Can and Cannot Do

Guidelines for Permitted Work and Activities on the Shabbat: A Practical Guide What Can and What Cannot Be Done on Shabbat.

A book written for the Beloved Christian, Sabbatier, Messianic and even the Orthodox who desire to know more about the Biblical Day of Rest…

Beloved, there are certain work allowed by God on the Shabbat (the Hebrew word meaning ‘Rest’) and certain work are not allowed. The mysterious clue lays in the Hebrew word that the forbidden work on the Shabbat is CONNECTED to ‘creational work’ as God rested on this day, and not the ‘other’ pleasurable work, that may be a BIG surprise to you.

Hebrew Sages and Scholars down through the ages have studied the deep-seated Hebrew ‘work’ words connected to ‘creation’ and came up with only thirty-nine general categories of labour that are forbidden on the Shabbat. The rest you can obviously do at leisure and is in total agreement with even the striciest Jewish Rabbis.

This is very very interesting as to what pleasurable things you can and cannot do. I have tried to give the best practical and legal ramifications without violation God’s Word.

With that in mind, let’s reason together as we explore the Biblical “truths” concerning the Shabbat.
