I find it interesting that just as I had forewarned everyone to read the last article before they make a judgment or perhaps if they couldn’t find the stomach to read what they believed to be an essentially Christian doctrine to just ignore it and go on and read one of my many other articles solely centred on Jewish doctrine. But typically, there were those that sent in letters to the administrator, perhaps not realizing that the author and the administrator are one and the same, demanding that this ‘Messianic Christian’ and his propaganda be removed from the site. I guess, after I stopped laughing, because calling me a Messianic Christian is like calling Moses a Moloch worshipper, I recognized it is exactly that mentality to shoot from the lips first and then maybe, just maybe, actually read and evaluate what is being said which led to the first misinterpretation of this book leading to our crushing defeat by Hadrian’s armies. Rabbi Akiva was so intent on believing that 7th star that I mention in the first chapter of these articles being held out in Samuel’s hand to Eleazar had to be a reference to Simeon bar Kozba, that he had him change his name to Bar Kochba, or the Son of the Star. Of course after are downfall, everyone started referring to him as Bar Kosiba, or the Son of the Lie, but that was only natural after they had sacrificed everything. The reference of being a liar was not only attached to Bar Kochba but to Rabbi Akiva as well, because even when he was trying to advocate Simeon as the chosen one, there was a large number of the rabbis that had allied themselves with the Romans and were in direct opposition to both of them. Perhaps if they had united behind Akiva, they could have actually made his interpretation of Eleazar’s Revelation come true, but they were so busy trying to appease their Roman overlords, they removed any chance of eventual success. So it brings me back to my original statement that perhaps we should spend more time reading, understanding, mulling over what is being said, before we start spewing false accusations. As you will see in this next chapter, there is an overload of content that indicates that the seventh star being held out was intended for Eleazar and no one else. The second chapter is about Eleazar; it is not about Yeshua. In fact the insertions or references to Yeshua are so poorly done that they are incongruent with the context of the chapter which is about Eleazar and his works, and how it is he that opens the seven seals and no one else. Now the fact that Eleazar didn’t pick up the mantle and in fact ran as far as he could to escape this responsibility means that the seventh star was still there for someone to grasp and be the deliverer. So this is an admission by Eleazar that he had failed to do so, but was now telling his successor, whomever that may be, of what should be done and what he should expect.
The Works of Eleazar
"I know your works, and behold, I have set an open door before you which no man can shut, because you have a little power, and you have kept my word and have not denied my name."
WHETHER THIS IS SAMUEL OR YAHWEH TALKING TO ELEAZAR, THE MESSAGE IS THE SAME. THEY HAVE WATCHED OVER HIM, KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE DID AND HOW HE FAILED IN PICKING UP THE MANTLE BUT EVEN IF HE DIDN’T DO AS EXPECTED, THERE IS NO TURNING BACK. THE EVENTS OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN AND THE ADVENT OF THE MESSIAH ARE NON-STOPPABLE, THE DOOR IS OPEN AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT. SIMILARLY, AS IN MY CASE, WHERE I HAVE WRITTEN FOR YEARS OF HOW WE MUST FIND A WAY TO PREVENT ARMAGEDDON, IT HAS NOW BEEN MADE CLEAR TO ME THAT THIS WAS A FOOLISH NOTION ON MY PART. NEITHER ELEAZAR NOR I HAVE THE AUTHORITY, THE STRENGTH OR THE POWER TO PREVENT WHAT GOD HAS ORDAINED. IT IS INEVITABLE. AS ELEAZAR HAS NOW REDEEMED HIS HERITAGE, ABANDONED THE FOOLISHNESS REGARDING YESHUA, GOD IS WILLING TO GIVE HIM THIS LAST CHANCE TO REDEEM HISMSELF BY SHOWING HIM WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THAT DESIGNATED TIME
9"Andbehold, I grant some of the synagogue of Satan, of those who say about themselves that they are Jews and are not, but they are lying, behold, I shall make them come and worship before your feet and to know that I love you." 10"Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also shall keep you from the trial that is going to come over the entire inhabited world, to test the inhabitants of The Earth."
THOSE THAT HAVE DISTORTED THE CONCEPTS AND TEACHINGS OF THE ORIGINAL SYNAGOGUE ARE NOTHING MORE THAN MEMBERS OF THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN. THEY PRETEND THEY HAVE INHERITED THE BIRTHRITE OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, PREACHING THAT THEY ARE THE TRUE JEWS AND THOSE OF US THAT ADHERE TO TORAH ARE NO LONGER CHOSEN, BUT WHEN THE TIME COMES NEAR, MANY OF THOSE THAT HAVE BELIEVED IN THE FALSE CHURCH WILL RECOGNIZE THEIR ERROR AND START RETURNING TO THE TORAH. THIS WAS NEVER HAPPENING IN AKIVA’S TIME. IN FACT IT WAS THE OPPOSITE. PEOPLE WERE FLOCKING TO THE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE AND NOT TO OUR BELIEFS. CONVERSIONS TO JUDAISM WERE ON THE DECLINE. IN FACT IT WASN’T UNTIL THE 20TH CENTURY THAT A STEADY STREAM OF CONVERTS BEGAN FLOCKING TO JUDAISM AND IT HASN’T BEEN UNTIL THE LAST FEW DECADES THAT THE REVIVAL OF KARAISM AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW KENISSAHS HAS BEGUN. THIS TIME BEING SPOKEN OF, IS NOW AND THE WORSHIPPING OF THE FEET OF THE MAN IS A REFERENCE TO SWEARING LOYALTY TO NOT ONLY THE EMBODIMENT OF THE JEWIS FAITH BUT THE MESSIAHS THAT WILL COME AS WELL. THOSE THAT WILLINGLY COME OVER TO US WILL BE SPARED AS WELL. . THIS WAS NEVER FEASIBLE BACK IN 132 AD BUT AKIVAH STILL BELIEVED THE SURROUNDING TRIBES AND ARAB SATRAPS WOULD COME AND FIGHT WITH BAR KOCHBA. IT NEVER HAPPENED!
11"I come at once. Hold fast whatever you have, lest someone take your crown."
A REFERENCE TO ELEAZAR THAT HE IS OF THE HOUSE OF DAVID AND THEREFORE FROM HIS FAMILY WILL COME THE MESSIAH. IT IS ALSO AN ADMONISHMENT THAT HE WAS SO READY TO GIVE UP THAT INHERITANCE BY HAVING HIS SISTER ANOINT YESHUA IN HIS STEAD.
12"And I will make the overcomer a pillar in The Temple of God and he will not go outside again, and I shall write upon him The Name of my God, and the name of The City, The New Jerusalem, which descends from my God."
THIS FALSE MESSIAH, THIS FALSE GOD THAT THE CHRISTIANS HAVE CREATED FROM YESHUA, NOTHING MORE THAN A JEWISH TEACHER, IS NOTHING MORE THAN A FALSE IDOL, A STATUE OF STONE THAT WILL SERVE NO OTHER PURPOSE THAN TO SERVE AS A PILLAR WITHIN THE NEW TEMPLE, A REMINDER TO ALL OF HOW THEY ABANDONED THE PATH, NEVER TO SEE THE LIGHT AGAIN. THE NAME OF YESHUA WILL BE ERASED FROM THAT PILLAR, TO BE FORGOTTEN IN TIME, BECAUSE ONLY THE NAME OF YAHWEH WILL EVER BE SPOKEN OF AGAIN, IN A NEW JERUSALEM.
15"I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot; because it is necessary that you be either cold or hot," 16"And you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you from my mouth." 17"Because you said that you are rich, and, 'I have prospered, and I lack nothing', and you do not know that you are sick and wretched and poor* and naked," 18"I counsel you to buy gold from me, proved by fire, that you may prosper, and white garments to put on, lest the shame of your nakedness be revealed, and eye salve to apply that you may see." 19"I rebuke and discipline those whom I love. Be zealous therefore and return."
THIS TIME THE WORKS OF THE EARLY CHURCH ARE BEING CONDEMNED. THERE IS NO HALFWAY IN THE WORSHIP OF GOD. THERE IS NO CONCESSION TO PAGANISM IN ORDER THAT THEY CAN ADOPT MONOTHEISM. YOU EITHER BELIEVE IN THE ONE AND TRUE GOD OR YOU DO NOT. THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN WHICH CHRISTIANITY IS PREACHING. BUT BECAUSE THE CHURCH WAS GROWING AND PROSPERING, IT DID NOT EVEN REALIZE HOW WRETCHED IT TRULY WAS. RETURN TO THE JEWISH FAITH AND FIND REDEMPTION. DENY THE NAKED TRUTH ONCE AND FOR ALL THAT YOU ARE PAGANS, WORSHIPPING THE IDOL OF A MAN, AND NOT RECOGNIZING THEIR OWN SHAME WHICH IS EXPOSED AS NAKEDNESS TO ANY TRUE BELIEVER IN YAHWEH. NOR DO THEY SEE HOW BLIND THEY ARE TO THE TRUTH BUT GOD IS WILLING TO PROVIDE THE SALVE FOR THEIR EYES IF THEY ARE WILLING.
After these things I saw, and behold, a door opened in Heaven, and a voice which I heard like a trumpet speaking with me saying, "Come up here, and I shall show you whatever is granted to happen after these things." 2And at once I was in The Shekinah, and behold a throne fixed in Heaven, and upon the throne sat he; 3And he who sat was as the likeness of the appearance of Jasper red quartz stone and of red and white Sardius, and a rainbow of the clouds which encircled the throne was like the appearance of an emerald; 4And around the throne, twenty four thrones, and upon those thrones, twenty four Elders who sat wearing white garments and crowns of gold upon their heads.
MUCH OF THE VISION BEARS A RESEMBLENCE TO THAT DESCRIBED IN EZEKIEL. THE GREEK LANGUAGE HAD NOTHING TO TRANSLATE FROM THE WORD SHEKINAH SO INSTEAD USED THE WORD SPIRIT. BUT ONE CANNOT ENTER INTO A SPIRIT BUT THE CHRISTIANS CONTINUED TO USE THE WORD SPIRIT FOR THE PAST TWO MILLENIA EVEN THOUGH IT NEVER MADE SENSE TO THEM. IT ONLY LED TO THEIR CONFUSION OF THE TRINITY WHICH IN ITSELF IS A FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND JEWISH CONCEPTS BUT THAT WILL BE FOR A MUCH LATER ARTICLE. THE ‘HE’ OF WHICH ELEAZAR SPEAKS OF SITTING ON THE THRONE IS YAHWEH. NOTICE THAT HIS DESCRIPTION OF THE ALMIGHTY IS WITHOUT FORM, A MYRIAD OF BRILLIANT COLOURS, STONES THAT HAD THE COLOUR OF FIRE AND ICE SIMULTANEOUSLY, MISTS OF GREEN CLOUDS CIRCLING ABOUT THIS CENTRAL FIRE. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL IMAGE FILLED WITH THE POWER AND AWE THAT IS TRULY YAHWEH, BUT NOTICE THERE IS NO MENTION OF EVER SEEING YESHUA AS THE CHRISTIAN EDITORS WILL INSIST IS DESCRIBED IN THIS IMAGE. AS FOR THE TWENTY-FOUR ELDERS, I WILL REMIND EVERYONE OF WHEN KING DAVID INITIALLY SET UP THE TEMPLE PRIESTHOOD BASED ON THE 24 AARONIC FAMILIES THAT EXISTED AT HIS TIME. WHAT IS CLEARLY BEING STATED HERE IS A RETURN TO THE PRIESTHOOD, THE OLD PRIESTHOOD, AS GOD HAD INSTRUCTED DAVID TO ESTABLISH. THERE IS NO TALK OF YESHUA AS THE LAST PRIEST AND AS I MENTIONED, THERE IS NO REFERENCE TO HIM AT ALL.
5And from the throne proceed thunders and lightnings and voices, and seven lamps were burning before that throne, which are The Seven Spirits of God. 6And before the throne, a of glass as the likeness of crystal, and in the midst of the throne and around the throne, four beasts that were full of eyes, front and back. 7The first beast was like a lion; the second had the likeness of a calf; the third beast had a face like a man and the fourth beast, the likeness of a flying eagle. 8Each one of these four beasts stood and had from its appendages and over it six surrounding wings, and from within they are full of eyes and are not silent day or night, saying, "Holy, holy, holy, LORD JEHOVAH God* Almighty, who was and is and is to come."
THE SEVEN MENORAHS REPRESENT THE SAME SEVEN EPOCHS, OR TIMES OF THE MESSIAHS AS HIGHLIGHTED IN THE PREVIOUS ARTICLE. THE BEASTS DESCRIBED THOUGH SIMILAR TO EZEKIEL ONCE AGAIN ARE THE SEPPHARIM OF THE TEMPLE BUT WHEREAS EACH WAS A COMPOSITE OR CHIMERA OF ALL FOUR ANIMALS, THEY HAVE NOW BEEN SEPARATED INTO THEIR INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS. EACH COMPONENT IS CAPABLE OF GREAT POWER, AND ELEAZAR WILL FOCUS ON THIS. BUT NOTICE THAT AGAIN THE ONLY REFERENCE IS TO YAHWEH, THE ONE AND ONLY GOD, THE ONE WHO WAS, IS AND WILL BE THROUGH ETERNITY. THIS IS UNLIKE THE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE THAT CLAIMS YESHUA WAS THERE AT THE BEGINNING AND AFTER HIS FIRST EXISTENCE ON EARTH WILL COME AGAIN. HE SERVES NO PURPOSE SINCE THE ONE AND ONLY GOD IS ETERNAL AND REQUIRES NO OTHER.
9And when these four beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him who sits upon the throne; to The One Living to the eternity of eternities, amen, 10The 24 Elders fall down in front of him who sits upon the throne and worship The Living One for the eternity of eternities, amen, and cast their crowns before the throne saying, 11"You are worthy, Our Lord and Our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you have created all things, and by your pleasure they exist and were created."
ONCE AGAIN THE CONFIRMATION THAT THERE IS ONLY YAHWEH. THERE IS NO DENYING IT AND ONLY YAHWEH IS WORTHY OF BEING ‘GOD’. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR ANYONE ELSE. WHAT ELEAZAR IS STATING HERE IS A MESSAGE TO ALL THE MINIANS AND CHRISTIANS THAT THEY ARE WRONG. THAT HE WAS WRONG FOR INITIALLY SUPPORTING THE MOVEMENT. THAT THEY MUST ALL RETURN NOW AND THROW THEMSELVES BEFORE YAHWEH AND ASK FOR HIS FORGIVENESS.
The Seven Seals
And I saw in the right hand of him who sits upon the throne, a scroll inscribed from the inside and from the outside, and sealed with seven seals.* 2And I saw another mighty Angel preaching with a loud voice: "Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loosen its seals?" 3And there was none able in Heaven or in Earth, nor any under The Earth, to open the scroll and to open its seals and look upon it.* 4I was weeping much because none was found worthy to open the scroll and to loosen its seals, 5And one of the Elders said to me, "Do not weep; behold, you are The Lion from the tribe of Judah, The Root of David, and will prevail to open the scroll and its seals."
THE PRECEEDNG SENTENCE TELLS US CLEARLY THAT THE SCROLL HAS NOT BEEN OPENED. IN FACT, NO ONE HAS YET BEEN FOUND THAT COULD OPEN THE SEAL. WHEN THE GREEKS TRANSLATED THIS SENTENCE INTO THEIR CHRISTIAN GOSPELS, THEY COMPLETELY IGNORED THE PREVIOUS SENTENCE AND TURNED THIS ONE IN TO THE PAST TENSE SAYING THAT IT HAD ALREADY BEEN OPENED BY THE LION OF JUDAH, TRYING TO SUGGEST THAT YESHUA HAD ALREADY OPENED IT BUT THIS MAKES NO SENSE WHEN YOU READ THE NEXT SENTENCE WHICH CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES THAT IT IS ELEAZAR, AS THE LION OF JUDAH AND ROOT OF DAVID THAT OPENS IT.
And I saw when I opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of The Four Beasts speaking like the sound of thunder: "Come and see*." 2And I heard* and I saw and behold, a white horse, and he who sat upon it had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he went out and gave victory, and was conquering and would conquer.
NOW THAT WE ARE CLEAR THAT IT IS ELEAZAR OPENING THE SEALS AND NOT ANYONE ELSE, WE CAN APPRECIATE THAT HE IS BEING SHOWN EXACTLY HOW ARMAGEDDON WILL TAKE PLACE. FIRST THERE IS AN INTENSIVELY WAGED WAR THAT IS TAKING OVER A PARTICULAR PART OF THE WORLD. I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A REFERENCE TO CURRENT EVENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST WITH THE RISE OF ISIS AND THE SPREADING OF THE CALIPHATE.
3And when I opened the second seal, I heard the second Beast which said, "Come." 4And a red horse went out, and to him who sat upon it was given to take peace from The Earth and to kill each one, and a great sword was given to him.
THIS IS FOLLOWED BY THE INITIAL CONFLICT BECOMING A WORLD WIDE CONFLAGARATION. THE ENTIRE GLOBE BECOMES INVOLVED IN THE CONFLICT. IT IS NO LONGER ABOUT ISIS AND ITS NEIGHBOURS, AND NOW THERE ARE MULTIPLE NATIONS INVOLVED AND EACH FIGHTING ONE ANOTHER FOR THEIR OWN GAINS AND REASONS.
5And when I opened the third seal, I heard the third Beast saying, "Come*", and behold, a black horse, and he who sat upon him had a balance scale in his hand. 6And I heard a voice from among The Beasts, which said, "A two-quart measure of wheat for a denarius* and three two-quart measures of barley for a denarius, and you shall not harm the wine and the oil."
THE THIRD EVENT IS ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. THE BIG CORPORATIONS ARE NOW INVOVLED IN SUPPORTING THE WAR EFFORTS FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL GAIN. OIL IS A MAJOR FACTOR. NATIONS WITH OIL HAVE A DOMINANT ROLE IN DETERMINING WHICH SIDE DESERVES SUPPORT. THERE IS NOT GOOD VERSUS EVIL, AS WE WOULD LIKE TO BELIEVE SHOULD UNDERPIN THE DECISIONS OF WHO TO SUPPORT IN A WAR. IT IS NOW BEING DETERMINED BY THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.
7When I opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of a Beast saying, "Come*." 8And I saw a pale horse, and the name of him who sat upon it was Death, and Sheol joined him and authority was given to him over a fourth of The Earth to kill with the sword, with starvation, with Death, and by the animals of The Earth.
BETWEEN 300 AND 400 MILLION PEOPLE WILL DIE IN THE CONFLICT. IT WILL NOT BE A QUICK WAR. IT WILL BE A WAR THAT LASTS FOR AN EXTREMELY LONG TIME AND THE NUMBERS WILL JUST STEADILY INCREASE. SOME DIE AS A DIRECT RESULT OF THE WAR, THE MAJORITY WILL DIE FROM THE DISEASE AND STARVATION THAT IS CAUSED BY THE WAR.
9And when I opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been murdered for the word of God (and for the testimony of Yeshua*) which they had. 10And they cried with a great voice, and they were saying, "How long, LORD JEHOVAH, holy and true, do you not judge and avenge our blood upon the inhabitants of The Earth?" 11And to each and every one of them was given a white robe, and it was said that they should rest for a little season of time until their companions and their brothers were also perfected, who were going to be killed, even as they had been.
I LEFT IN THE BRACKETED PART WITH THE ASTERIK BESIDE THE NAME YESHUA BECAUSE EVEN IN THE ARAMAIC VERSION WHICH I’M USING FOR THIS TRANSLATION, THE EDITOR OF THAT BOOK NOTICED THAT THE BRACKETED WORDS APPEARD TO BE A RESULT OF LATER EDITING AND MARKED IT SO. I WANTED TO INCLUDE IT TO DEMONSTRATE HOW EASY IT WAS TO CHANGE THE JEWISH CONTEXT OF THIS BOOK TO A CHRISTIAN ONE SIMPLY BY SOME MONK ADDING A FEW WORDS. THIS FIFTH SEAL IS A COMMENT ON HOW MANY MILLIONS OF JEWS WILL DIE BETWEEN ELEAZAR’S TIME AND THE TIME OF THE ARMAGEDDON. WE KNOW THE NUMBER IS IN MILLIONS. WE WERE TORTURED AND MURDERED FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN WE WOULD NOT GIVE UP OUR FAITH IN YAHWEH. ALL OUR DEAD CRIED OUT FOR VENGEANCE BUT NONE WAS FORTHCOMING. NOW WE HAVE A PROMISE THAT THE TIME IS AT HAND. A TIME WHEN THE WORLD WILL TRY TO ELIMINATE US AGAIN AS IN ‘GOING TO BE KILLED’ BUT THIS TIME IT DOES NOT HAPPEN. WE WILL FIGHT BACK AND WE WILL AVENGE THEM. THIS COULD ONLY HAPPEN WHEN WE WERE AT A TIME IN HISTORY WHEN WE WERE STRONG AGAIN. CAPABLE OF LAUNCHING A COUNTERATTACK THAT WOULD SHATTER OUR ENEMIES. HISTORICCALLY, THAT TIME IS ONLY FEASIBLE NOW. AS JEWS, THIS IS THE ONLY TIME WE HAVE AN ARMY, AN AIRFORCE, AND LET’S BE TRUTHFUL, THE NUCLEAR CAPABILITIES TO HIT OUR ENEMIES HARDER THAN THEY CAN HIT US. THIS CERTAINLY WASN’T THE TIME OF BAR KOCHBA AND THIS IS WHERE RABBI AKIVA MADE HIS GREATEST ERROR IN JUDGMENT. HE BELIEVED THEY HAD THE SUFFICIENT ARMS AND WEAPONRY TO DO SO. HE THOUGHT YAHWEH WOULD INTERVENE AND MAKE UP FOR THEIR SHORTCOMINGS. BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS SENTENCE STATES. WE, AS THE BROTHERS BEING REFERRED TO, WHO ARE HIGHLY HONED AND ARMED (AS IN PERFECTED) MUST DO IT OURSELVES.
12And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake, and the Sun was blackened like sackcloth of hair, and the whole moon became like blood. 13And the stars of the Heavens fell upon The Earth, like a fig tree casting its figs when it is shaken by a strong wind. 14And the Heavens were parted like scrolls being rolled up, and every hill and all the islands were moved from their places. 15And the Kings of The Earth and The Princes and Captains of thousands and the rich and the mighty and every Servant and every Free Person, hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16And they said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us.”," 17"Because the great day of his anger has come, and who is able to stand?"
GUESS I DON’T HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS ONE IN GREAT DETAIL. NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST. THE CLOUD, THE WIND, THE SHAKING OF THE EARTH, THE MASSIVE DESTRUCTION, ALL INDICATE WEAPONS THAT WE HAVE TODAY. THE BAR KOCHBA REVOLT WAS BASED ON A METAPHORIC INTERPRETATION OF THESE SENTENCES RATHER THAN THE LITERAL ONE WHICH ELEAZAR INTENDED. THEY COULDN’T IMAGINE ANYTHING LIKE A NUCLEAR WEAPON SO THEY COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THAT ELEAZAR WAS DESCRIBING ACTUAL EVENTS. THE CHRISTIAN MONKS ADDED A FEW WORDS TO SENTENCE 16 TO SUGGEST THAT THEY WERE HIDING FROM THE LAMB BUT AGAIN THOSE MONKS COULDN’T APPRECIATE THAT THE DESCRIPTION WAS LITERAL AND FELT THEY HAD TO INSERT A REFERENCE TO YESHUA EVEN THOUGH IT DIDN’T FIT WITH THE DETAILS.
1And after this, I saw four Angels standing over the four corners of The Earth and holding the four winds, that the winds would not blow on The Earth, neither on the Sea, neither on any tree. 2And I saw another Angel ascending from the dawning of the Sun and having the seal of THE LIVING GOD, and he cried with a loud voice to the four Angels to whom it was given to harm The Earth and the Sea, 3And he said, "Do not harm the land, neither the Sea, nor the trees, until we seal the Servants of God on their foreheads."
THE CATSTROPHIC CHANGES TO THE EARTH WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO PEAK. TIME FOR PEOPLE TO REORGANIZE. TIME FOR THOSE THAT ARE TRUE BELIEVERS IN THE TORAH TO REASSERT THEIR FAITH IN YAHWEH. AS IT IS SHOWN IN THE NEXT SENTENCE THAT SALVATION IS RESERVED ONLY FOR THOSE WITH FAITH IN THE ONE GOD.
4And I heard the number who were sealed - one hundred and forty four thousand, from all the tribes of Israel:
AN INTERESTING NUMBER 144,000. IF I LOOK AT THE 12 ORIGINAL TRIBES, THEN IT MEANS 12,000 FROM EACH TRIBE TO BE SAVED AS MENTIONED IN THE NEXT SENTENCE. SINCE THE 12 TRIBES NO LONGER EXIST, THEN IT IS A REFERENCE TO THOSE THAT IN THE TIME OF ARMAGEDDON RECOGNISE THEIR FALSE BELIEFS, REPENT AND CONVERT TO JUDAISM, NOT IN THE SENSE OF A LEGAL CONVERSION BUT ONE WHICH IS INSCRIBED ON THEIR HEARTS. TWELVE THOUSAND WAS CONSIDERED IN ELEAZAR’S TIME TO BE A SIZABLE TOWN OR CITY. A REFERENCE THEN TO AN ALLIANCE OF TWELVE NATIONS OR GROUPS THAT ARE FIGHTING ON BEHALF OF GOD AND THE MORAL TRUTHS FOUND IN THE TORAH. THIS ALLLIANCE OF THE TWELVE WILL PREVAIL BUT THE COST IN DEATH AND DESTRUCTION WILL BE HEAVY.
5From the tribe of Yehuda, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Reuben*, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand; 6From the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Naphtali, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Menashe, twelve thousand; 7From the tribe of Shimeon, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Issachar, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand; 8From the tribe of Zebulon, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand sealed.
9After this I saw many multitudes which were impossible to count, which were of all people, generations, nations and languages, standing before the throne *, and wearing white garments and with palms in their hands. 10And they shouted with a great voice, and they were saying, "Salvation to our God, and to him Who sits upon the throne *. 11And all of the Angels were standing around the throne and The Elders and The Four Beasts, and they fell before the throne on their faces, 12Saying, "Amen! Glory and blessing and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength to our God for the eternity of eternities! Amen!"
THE PHRASE, AND THE LAMB, WAS INSERTED TWICE INTO THE SENTENCE BY THE EDITING MONKS. THE EDITOR OF THE ARAMAIC TEXT MARKED THEM AS LIKELY ADDITIONS AND I HAVE REMOVED THEM. I HAVE LEFT THE ASTERIKS SO YOU CAN SEE WHERE THEY WERE AND HOW THEY REALLY DO APPEAR AS UNLIKELY INSERTIONS AS IF SOMEONE WAS DESPERATE TO ENSURE THAT CHRISTIANS KNEW THAT YESHUA WAS SOMEWHERE IN THE PICTURE, EVEN THOUGH ELEAZAR FULLY DESCRIBED THE SCENES WITH YAHWEH ON THE THRONE AND THE 24 ELDERS WITHOUT ANY PREVIOUS MENTION OF YESHUA. WHAT IS IMPORTANT ABOUT THIS SENTENCE IS THAT AS I POSTULATED THE VALUE OF 12,000 MIGHT BE REFERRING TO NATIONS OR AN ALLIANCE OF COUNTRIES, THAT IS SUGGESTED IN THIS SENTENCE THAT THERE IS A COALITION OF PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE GLOBE FIGHTING FOR GOD OR AT LEAST FOR THE PRINCIPLES INSPIRED BY GOD.
13And one of The Elders responded and he said to me, "Who are these wearing white garments and from where have they come?" 14And I said to him, "My Lord, you know." And he said to me, "These are those who came from great suffering and they have purified their garments and whitened them in blood*." 15"Because of this, they are before the throne of God, and they serve him day and night in the Temple and he who sits on the throne will dwell with them." 16"They will not hunger, neither will they thirst, and the Sun will not assail them, neither any heat."
ONCE AGAIN IT IS CLEAR THAT ELEAZAR IS THE ONLY INDIVIDUAL OTHER THAN YAHWEH OF GREAT IMPORTANCE THROUGHOUT THIS CHAPTER. IT IS ACTUALLY THE ELDER ASKING HIM IF HE KNOWS WHO THESE PEOPLE GATHERED REPRESENT. IT IS A TEST OF KNOWLEDGE FOR THE ELDER ALREADY KNOWS. HE WANTS TO SEE IF ELEAZAR UNDERSTANDS AND IS TRULY REPENTANT FOR HIS ABANDONMENT OF HIS MISSION OVER SIXTY YEARS AGO. ELEAZAR TELLS US THAT HE WAS AWARE IT WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A RHETORICAL QUESTION BY SAYING TO THE ELDER THAT HE ALREADY KNOWS THE ANSWER. PRIMARILY IT IS THE JEWS THAT HAVE SUFFERED GREATLY BUT IN ALL THAT SUFFERING NEVER ABANDONED OUR BELIEFS. WE WHITENED OUR GARMENTS LIKE THE LINEN BURIAL SHROUDS THAT WE STILL WRAP OUR DEAD BODIES IN. THUS THE REFERENCE TO WHITENING THEM IN OUR OWN BLOOD. LATER THE EDITING MONKS INSERTED ‘OF THE LAMB’ WHERE THE ASTERIK IS TO GIVE THE SENTENCE A CHRISTIAN FLAVOUR BUT IT IS CLEAR THAT THE ELDER IS REFERRING TO THE SUFFERING OF JEWS THAT STILL PRACTICE THEIR FAITH.
I hope that it is becoming clear to those reading this series of articles how this book that the Christians have referred to as Revelation, really originated as the Book of Eleazar, and it is only after they’ve inserted a few reference and sentences here and there after we abandoned the book of prophecies as heresy following our defeat during the Bar Kochba war, that they took it on as one of their own. But more importantly, I think we have to read the book, obviously without the inaccurate Christian insertions, as I’m now presenting it, in order to appreciate how it is proving to be very prophetic of our time. In the next article, Eleazar will open that seventh seal. He is the prophet that is telling us what will happen. He is the loyal servant of Yahweh that failed in his mission and only after he fully returned to his Jewish traditions, roots and faith was Yahweh willing to show him the glimpse of our future. In some ways he may be the greatest prophet of all, because Yahweh was able to transfer through him all the imagery of the prophesies from the other prophets that preceded him. And please, for those that are going to write the administrator, being myself, that they believe there is a Christian messianic preaching on this site, take the time to read the article and recognize that as Karaites you must finally open your eyes and stop believing the rabbinic traditions that everything that didn’t have their seal of approval must be a sin. Only by opening your eyes will you actually hear the truth.
