Six Zealot Leaders and Four Edomite Leaders

Six Zealot Leaders and Four Edomite Leaders

Revelation 17

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and…

The mark of Cain was the letter Vav : in gematria represents the number six

Revelation 13

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Three and a Half Years Ministry of Jesus

Revelation 12

1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

Annas ben Seth

Revelation 13

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

The imagery of the revelation of Daniel and John comes ultimately from the Canaanite myth of Baʿal's battle with Yamm (lit. "Sea"), symbolic of chaos. The sea beast (Annas) is a chaotic beast.

Annas [also Ananus or Ananias), son of Seth (23/22 BCE –…

One of the most significant characteristics of Second Temple Judaism is the wide variety of texts that circulated among different groups of Jews.  We are accustomed to treating these documents in classes, based more on their transmission than their literary and theological characteristics.  So we speak of Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, and Dead Sea Scrolls, designating in the first and last instance specific groups of texts collected in some way in Antiquity.  Pseudepigrapha is a catch-all…

The Resurrection of Daniel 12:2 Fulfilled or Future?

The Resurrection of Daniel 12:2 Fulfilled or Future?

This is the latest book from Don Preston and I just starting reading it tonight and was so knocked over by so many of the futurist fallacies exposed by Preston and decided to see if anyone else was reading it and like to chime in.

I'm only into @page 25 but the material presented by Preston is so devastating to the futurist view of…

Mattathias ben Theophilus : The Eighth and Last High Priest of House of Annas

 Revelation 17

8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Mattathias ben Theophilus : Theophilus was the son of Annas and the brother of Eleazar, Jonathan, Matthias and Ananus, all of whom served as High Priests.…

Siege of Jerusalem 63 BC : Pompey the Great

Revelation 8

1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 And…

Revelation 11

1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Redeeming Culture

Since 1972, these United States have been an almost silent witness to around 55 million murders! Most recently in the news are homosexual marriage licenses. For the past 40-50 years, society ( culture ) in this great nation have taken a decidedly down-hill turn. This is barely to mention even the wars & rumors of war that the U.S. Inc. has embroiled its subjects in!

Society in these United States & Western Culture in general has become so corrupt that I'm sure our Founding…

After this, the judgment

Heard Greg Laurie on the radio today, and he was answering bible questions. One question asked if this is the only day of salvation. He said yes, and if a sinner doesn't accept Christ now, in this life, then there are no future opportunities. His proof text was Hebrews 9:27

"27And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes…

The Covenant Family of God

Scripturally speaking, there is no doubt that we who have entered into Covenant with the Body of Christ ( both the Creator Himself & the Body of His Son ) are 'sons of God' ( Matthew 5:9, Romans 8:14, Galatians 3:26 )! There are those who have not, whether through ignorance or stubborness ( rebelliousness ) entered this Covenant & so cannot & should not be called 'sons of God'. The question before us today is, 'can they or should they be considered children of God,…

The Presence Within; the Community of Divinity

As much talk as there is these days about how so many doctrines are in need of a fresh look & possibly revision, in light of concepts like Covenant Protology & Eschatology, one subject that has come under scrutiny lately is that of 'pneumatology', or the Study of the Holy Spirit! Although related by necessity to the doctrine of the Trinity, or the three-in-one, this post will focus, not so much on whether the Holy Spirit exists as a separate Person from the Father & Son, but whether… Continue
