By now all should see that the underlying and original writing by Eleazar not only has application to our time but that the initial message was intended for his own people, being the Jews and it was only after extensive alteration, doctoring and rewriting, that the Christian version of John’s Revelation was arrived at. So welcome back to the next chapter in the retelling of the Book of Eleazar. For those of you that are attempting to draw comparisons to what is written in the Christian book of Revelation, then by now you will have seen that much of that which has been removed bore no semblance to the actual story being told and essentially was propagandist in nature, inserting references to Churches and to Yeshua without any unification or justification to the context or content of the visions that Eleazar (Jochanan) is describing. Similarly, you will notice the chronology in that Christian version is entirely out of sequence and appears to have had pieces of a particular story cherry picked out and inserted in other places in order to generate an entirely new meaning. No where is this more evident in what I have compiled as the 4th Chapter of Eleazar's book. By reuniting the threads of a particular storyline, you will see that the confluence of the original prophecy is quite clear and its intended message quite different from that which the Christian world has come to believe will be their Tribulation. Eleazar had visions; he saw things he couldn't explain in the framework of his existence but in our time, some of his visions become commonplace. The metaphors of his description have been mistakenly taken literally and four almost two millennia have become the stories used to terrify a people submerged into the dark ages, where evil magic reigned supreme. As you will see in the manner in which I was instructed to read this book, the events are just as terrifying but in a manner that we are already beginning to see in our time. When Jews defending themselves against armed Palestinians can be tarred with the same brush of being terrorists as Obama has done, when Netanyahu has to fly to Moscow to appeal to Putin for support, when comments that the Mufti inspired the Nazis to pursue their Final Solution can raise headlines in the media that the Israeli Prime Minister is a Holocaust Revisionist, when the Arab world can apply to UNESCO to have the Wailing Wall declared a historical Muslim site, then you know that the time that Eleazar is describing is upon us. For those that have ears, let them see, for those that have eyes, let them hear, and if you cannot comprehend the true meaning of my phrase which I have used and expressed for years, a deliberate rephrasing of the Christian doctrine, then you will struggle to accept what is about to befall us all.
In this fourth chapter the events of the war will be more clearly defined and we will see how the battle see-saws between the opposing forces. The hiatuses that occur in the war are as much to do with our own naïve beliefs that when our enemies stop firing rockets, then they must be coming to their senses and are prepared to sit around the peace table, rather than accept the obvious that they just ran out of rockets and are waiting for the next shipment. All this will be made clear in this chapter as you read it.
The Beginning of Chapter Four
1. And I saw another Angel* who descended from Heaven and he wore a cloud and a rainbow of the sky on his head and his appearance was like the Sun, and his legs like pillars of fire. THE SEVEN COLOURSOF THE RAINBOW, SUGGESTING THAT ELEAZAR IS NOW BEING DELIVERED A MESSAGE FROM YAHWEH. REMEMBER THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NUMBERS FROM MY EARLIER ARTICLE.
2And he had a small scroll opened in his hand and he placed his right foot on the Sea, but the left on The Earth; 3And he shouted with a loud voice like a roaring lion, and when he shouted, seven thunders spoke with their voices. ONE COULD EASILY OVERLOOK THE PLACING OF THE FEET BUT THE QUESTION THAT SHOULD BE ASKED IS WHY MENTION IT AT ALL. MOST OF US WILL LEAD WITH OUR RIGHT FOOT. IT IS A NATURAL PHENOMENUM AND THIS THEN LETS OUR LEFT FOOT TAKE THE STEP TOWARDS THE DIRECTION OR PATH WE INTEND TO GO. THEREFORE THIS ANGEL IS COMING FROM ACROSS THE OCEAN TO DELIVER THE MESSAGE. THIS FORCE OF GOD IS NOT ARISING OUT OF EUROPE OR THE MIDDLE EAST BUT FROM THE LANDS THAT ARE DIVIDED BY WATER FROM THESE CONTINENTS.
4And when the seven thunders spoke, I was ready to write, and I heard a voice from The Seventh Heaven, which said, "Seal that which the seven thunders spoke and do not write it.” ONCE AGAIN CONFIRMATION OF THE NUMBER SEVEN SO THAT WE KNOW THAT THIS IS THE LORD’S SIDE. ELEAZAR UNDERSTOOD THAT SUCH A LONG AND DETAILED PROPHECY COULD BECOME CONFUSING TO THE READER, SO HE HAS INSERTED THE NUMBER CODE SO THAT THE READER WILL NOT BECOME LOST. IN CONCEPT IT WAS A CLEVER WAY THAT THE READER COULD INSTANTLY KNOW THE POSITION AND SIDE UPON WHICH THE IDENTITY IN THE VISION WAS SIDING. BUT WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE OF THIS INTENDED GUIDE, THE CHRISTIANS HAVE MISTAKENLY ASSIGNED ROLES INCORRECTLY TO MUCH OF WHAT ELEAZAR SAW. THE SPEAKING OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS IS THE SOUND FROM THE ARMADA AS ITS HEAVY GUNS RAINED SHELLS DOWN UPON THE ENEMIES OF GOD, THE SOUND OF THEIR FIRING WAS DEAFENING LIKE CONTINUOUS THUNDER. ELEAZAR WAS READY TO PROPHESIZE THAT THE WAR WOULD BE OVER, THAT THE FORCES OF GOD WOULD BE VICTORIOUS AS HE WATCHED IN HIS VISION THE BOMBS RAIND DOWN ON THE ENEMY BUT HE WAS CAUTIONED NOT TO DO SO. THAT HIS TIME TO WRITE WAS PREMATURE AND THE WAR WAS STILL FAR FROM OVER
5And the Angel whom I saw was standing on The Sea and upon the dry land, raising his hand to Heaven. 6And he swore by him who lives to the eternity of eternities, him who created Heaven and that which is in it, and The Earth, and that which is in it: "Time shall be no more." OR IN OTHER WORDS, THERE IS NO AVOIDING THE INEVITABLE. THE TIME HAS COME TO FIGHT FOR THE TRUE BELIEFS, FOR THE MORALITY AND DECENCY THAT GOD INSPIRES US TO ACHIEVE THROUGH HIS HOLY WORDS.
7"But in the days of the seventh Angel, when he shall sound, the mystery of God is completed, which he foretold to his Servants The Prophets." ELEAZAR IS CONFIRMING THAT HIS IS THE LAST PROPHECY. EVERYTHING FROM THE OTHER PROPHETS HAS BEEN LEADING TO THIS TIME, OR THE END OF THE TIMES AS WE KNOW THEM. A NEW AGE WILL BE REBORN AFTER THIS ONE, BUT FIRST IT MEANS SURVIVING THE WAR.
8And I heard a voice from Heaven again speaking with me and it said, "Go take the little scroll that is in the hand of the Angel who stands on the land and upon the Sea." A DIRECT COMMAND FROM GOD TO ELEAZAR. THERE IS NO INTERCEDING PERSON, NO YESHUA OR THE LAMB THAT THE BOOK OF REVELATION AMONGST THE CHRISTIANS CONSTANTLY REFERS TO. ELEAZAR IS HIS CHOSEN FOR THIS MISSION. NO YESHUA, AND NO CHRISTIAN INTERPRETERS. THE TIME IS NOW FOR ELEAZAR TO PROPHESIZE.
9And I went to the Angel and I told him to give me the little scroll and he said to me, "Take and eat it and your belly will be bitter to you, but it will be like honey in your mouth." 10And I took the little scroll from the hand of the Angel and I ate it and it was like sweet honey in my mouth and when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. BEING CHOSEN IS SWEET, AN HONOUR TO BE SELECTED BY GOD. BUT THE MESSAGE OF THE PROPHET IS RARELY A SWEET ONE. TO TELL PEOPLE THAT THEY WILL SUFFER AND LIKELY DIE IS NOT A MISSION THAT ANYONE DESIRES. IT IS A BITTER ONE TO PREACH, AND THE PROPHET WILL ALWAYS BE RELUCTANT TO DO SO. MANY OF THE PROPHETS TRIED UNSUCCESSFULY TO EVADE THEIR MISSIONS, ONLY TO BE REPRIMANDED BY GOD BUT ELEAZAR ACCEPTS AND HE IS NOW RESTORED TO HIS POSITION AS PROPHET OF THE LORD. MANY WILL LOSE THEIR LOVED ONES BUT THE PROPHET MUST INSPIRE THEM BEYOND THEIR GRIEF AND SORROW.
11And he said to me, "A time is given to you again to prophesy unto the nations and peoples and languages and many Kings". THIS IS THAT TIME. ONCE AGAIN THE WORDS OF ELEAZAR MUST BE REINTERPRETED AND SHOWN TO BE THE VOICE OF A JEWISH PROPHET WITH RELEVENCE TO OUR TIME. EVERYONE MUST COME AND HEAR THE TRUTH OF THE WORDS AND RECOGNIZE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN CORRUPTED FOR TWO MILLENNIA BUT ARE FINALLY BEING RESTORED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO WHOM THEY BELONG. THE MESSAGE WAS GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE LONG AGO, ONLY TO BE MISINTERPRETED BY PEOPLE LIKE RABBI AKIVA, THEN BY THE CHRISTIANS, BUT NOW IT IS ONCE AGAIN BEING RETOLD AS IT WAS INTENDED AND THIS TIME ALL WILL COME TO KNOW IT IS TRUE.
1.And a reed was given to me like a rod and the Angel was standing and said, "Rise and measure the Temple of God and the altar and those who worship in it," TAKE MEASURE OF THOSE THAT HAVE REMAINED FAITHFUL AND TRUE TO TORAH. SEEK OUT THOSE THAT ARE THE FAITHFUL REMNANT FOR THEY ARE FEW AND HARD TO FIND BUT THEY MUST BE UNITED IN THE COMING BATTLE.
2"And the inner court of the Temple leave out and do not measure it, because that is given to the Gentiles, and they will trample The Holy City forty two months. FALSELY THE CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS HAVE CLAIMED TO USURP THE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, DENYING THE SANCTITY OF OUR PRIESTHOOD, THE TRUTH OF OUR RELIGION AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO FOR WHAT WOULD APPEAR SUPERFICIALLY TO BE ANOTHER THREE AND A HALF YEARS BUT YEARS SHOULD BE REPLACED BY GENERATIONS. THE MAJOR CONFLICT MAY LAST ONLY 42 MONTHS BUT THE FIGHTING, TERROR, AND DESTRCUTION WILL CONTINUE FOR THE EQUIVALENT OF THESE THREE AND A HALF GENERATIONS OR APPROXIMATELY 140 YEARS. THIS IS A COMING WAR OF IDEALISM, AND THOSE ARE NEVER ERADICATED QUICKLY. THE CONCEPTS, PERCEPTIONS AND IDEALS OF PEOPLE DO NOT DIE WITH THE DEFEAT OF ONE PERSON. THAT SHOULD BE CLEARLY EVIDENT FROM NAZISM WHCH STILL EXISTS, RESURFACES CONSTANTLY, AND WILL NEVER BE ERADICATED BECAUSE THE IDEALS ARE STILL PURSUED BY A MINDSET THAT WE WILL NEVER COMPREHEND. RADICAL ISLAM IS NO DIFFERENT AND IT WILL NEVER BECOME TRULY EXTINCT, EVEN IN DEFEAT.
3"And I shall grant the two witnesses to prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days while wearing sackcloth." CHRISTIAN EDITORS INSERTED ‘MY’ IN FRONT OF THE TWO WITNESSES, IN ORDER TO TRY AND RATIONALIZE THEIR ROLE IN THESE EVENTS BUT CLEARLY THE ANGEL SPEAKING DOES NOT HAVE HIS OWN PROPHETS. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY IS THE TIME STAMP OF 2260 DAYS OR AS WE HAVE COME TO SEE, DAYS OFTEN REPRESENT YEARS. IF WE LOOK AT THIS WAR GETTING WELL UNDERWAY BY THE YEAR 2020 (MORE LIKELY TO BEGIN IN EARNEST IN 2017) AND ADD TO IT THE 140 YEARS OF ITS LASTING EFFECTS, THEN WE SEE THAT ELEAZAR IS SAYING THAT THE WORLD HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO SPIN OUT OF CONTROL FOR THE 2260 YEARS SINCE YESHUA TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN BUT AFTER THIS TIME PERIOD IT WILL BE FINALLY BE RESTORED AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
4"These are the two olive trees and the two menorahs, which stand before the Lord of the whole Earth*." 5"And whoever seeks to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths and consumes their enemies and those that choose to harm them; so it is given to them to be killed." DID ELEAZAR SEE THE CHASM WITHIN JUDAISM THAT EXISTS TODAY? PERHAPS. THE DIVISION BETWEEN STRICT ADHERENTS OF THE TORAH AS IN KARATIES, AND THOSE THAT PURSUE THE TALMUD AS IN RABBANITES, BUT THEY ARE TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN AND THEY WILL STILL BE PROTECTED AND THEY WILL STILL SURVIVE AS THEY HAVE DONE AGAINST ALL THEIR ENEMIES FOR THE PAST 3200 YEARS. NO OTHER PEOPLE UNDER SUCH CONSTANT THREAT OF TOTAL ANNIHILATION HAVE EVER DONE SO IN HUMAN HISTORY. THE REFERENCE TO THE OLIVE BRANCHES AND THE MENORAHS IS A CLEAR INDICATION OF THEIR JEWISH HERITAGES, THAT OF THE PRIEST (OLIVE) AND THAT OF THE STATE OR KINGDOM (MENORAH). AT THE TIME WE WILL BECOME AWARE OF WHOM THESE TWO MESSIAHS ARE (FOR THOSE WISHING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE TWO MESSIAHS READ MY ARTICLE ON THE ‘TWIN MESSIAHS) MANY WILL SPEAK OUT AGAINST THEM AS IS OUR NATURE THROUGHOUT HISTORY IN WHICH WE HAVE OFTEN PROVEN TO BE OUR OWN WORST ENEMY.. JUST AS KORAH AND DATHAN SPOKE OUT AGAINST MOSES, THERE WILL ARISE FROM AMONGST OUR OWN PEOPLE THOSE THAT WILL QUESTION THEIR AUTHORITY AND TRY TO UNDERMINE THEM. BUT ALL THESE ATTEMPTS WILL FAIL. I MERELY HAVE TO THINK OF ALL THE JEWISH DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS AND THE SENATE WHOM HAVE BLINDLY FOLLOWED OBAMA AND ARE EITHER BLIND OR IGNORANT OF HOW HE HAS UNDERMINED OUR JEWISH AND ISRAELI STANDING IN THE WORLD.
6"And these have been under the authority to close up the sky that the rain would not descend in the days of those with prophecy, and they now will have authority to change water to blood and to smite The Earth with all plagues as much as they wish." THE JEWS HAVE ENDURED THE TORMENT AND SUFFERING UNDER THE CONTROL OF FALSE RELIGIONS THAT DENIED THE TRUE PROPHETS BUT THAT WILL NOT BE THE CASE ANY LONGER.JUST AS YAHWEH DELIVERED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM EGYPT THROUGH THE PLAGUES HE INFLICTED ON THAT LAND, SO TOO WILL THEIR BE A RECKONING AND THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN THE PERSECUTORS FOR SO LONG WILL BE AFFICTED LIKE THE PLAGUES OF OLD. BUT FIRST THEIR WILL BE TORMENT AND SUFFERING. JUST LIKE MOSES, THEY WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH A PLAGUE OF NATURAL DISASTERS. BUT JUST LIKE MOSES, REMEMBER THAT PHARAOH’S HEART HAD HARDENED AND HE WOULD NOT LET THE PEOPLE GO EVEN AFTER SUFFERING THE FIRST NINE PLAGUES. THEY HAVE BEEN GRANTED MILITARY AUTHORITY TO SEE THAT THE ENEMIES WORLD IS TURNED INTO A PARCHED AND DESTROYED LAND, BUT THAT MEANS THE LOSSES ON BOTH SIDES WILL BE HEAVY FOR ANY THAT ARE WAGING WAR IN THOSE LANDS WILL BE CAUGHT BY THE DEVESTATION.
The Beast of Chapter Four
7"And when their testimonies are complete, The behemoth that will ascend from the Sea* will make war with them and will conquer them and kill them." WHEN THEIR TIME OF PREACHING IS FINALLY FINISHED, AND THOSE THAT ARE CONVINCED TO FIGHT IN THE NAME OF GOD ARE UNITED, THEN WILL THE MIGHTY NATIONS CROSS THE SEA, TRANSFERRING MASSIVE TROOP NUMBERS IN ORDER TO FINALLY END THIS ONGOING STRUGGLE. TO ELEAZAR, THE VISION OF AIRCRAFT CARRIERS, DESTROYES, BATTLESHIPS, WITH THEIR GREAT HULKING STRUCTURES AND GREY HULLS WOULD HAVE BEEN A VISION OF A GIANT BEHEMOTH. HE WOULD HAVE HAD NO OTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT. THE CHRISTIAN TRANSLATION OF BEAST IS A MODERN SYNONYM BUT IN ELEAZAR’S TIME, THE ARAMAIC WOULD HAVE BEEN SIMPLY BEHEMOTH.
8"And their corpses came into the street of The Great City, which spiritually is called Sadom and Egypt." 9"And then they of the peoples and generations, languages and nations will look upon their corpses three and a half days, and they will not allow their corpses to be placed in tombs." THE LANDING FOR THE INVASION IS EGYPT AND THE FORCES WILL ENGAGE IN A GREAT BATTLE NEAR THEBES. THIS IS CLEARLY INDICATED BY ELEAZAR BY THE SADOM OF EGYPT. THE שהדום של מצרים, MEANGING THE DOOM OF EGYPT (OR FOOT-REST OF EGYPT) WHICH WAS IMPROPERLY TRANSLATED AS SODOM AND EGYPT BY THE CHRISTIAN EDITORS, IS A REFERENCE TO STATEMENTS MADE IN ISAIAH 20. OBVIOUSLY IF ELEAZAR WANTED TO REFER TO A CITY WHICH HAD REACHED THE LOWEST LEVEL OF HUMAN BASEDNESS, THEN HE WOULD HAVE SAID SODOM AND GEMORRAH. HE WAS NOT ONE TO CHOOSE HIS WORDS CARELESSLY. BUT AS A REFERENCE TO ISAIAH, THIS BECOMES VERY OBVIOUS IN ITS INTENTIONS. ASSYRIA DID CONQUER EGYPT AND RULED IT BETWEEN THE YEARS OF 656-39 BC. THEBES WAS SACKED AND THE NORTH WAS HELD FIRMLY UNDER ASSYRIAN CONTROL. THIS G4 THAT I MENTIONED LAST ARTICLE, WHICH WILL STILL FIRMLY HOLD WHAT CONSTITUTED THE ANCIENT ASSYRIA, INSPITE OF THE HUGE INVADING ARMY FROM THE WEST, WILL STILL MANAGE TO CONQUER THE LANDS BETWEEN IT AND WELL INTO EGYPT. WHEN ONE EXAMINES THE LOCATION OF THEBES ON A MAP THEY WILL SEE JUST HOW MUCH LAND HAS BEEN CAPTURED, AND THE NUMBER OF CORPSES THAT WILL RESULT. THE NUMBERS WILL BE STAGGARING AND THOSE OF US FIGHTING ON BEHALF OF THE WESTERN NATIONS, WITH OUR MYRIAD OF LANGUAGES FROM SO MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, WILL BE OVERWHELMED BY THE SLAUGHTER.
10"And the inhabitants of The Earth will rejoice over them and they will celebrate and they will send gifts to each other, because of the two Prophets who tormented the inhabitants of The Earth." IN THIS CASE, TWO FALSE PROPHETS THAT HAVE TORMENTED THE EARTH AND CAUSED THIS EVENT TO FINALLY TAKE PLACE AND NOT A REFERENCE TO THE OLIVE AND THE MENORAH. THERE HAVE BEEN ONLY TWO PROPHETIC PERSONALITIES THAT ALTERED GOD’S INITIAL PLAN OF HAVING HIS CHILDREN BRING THE TORAH TO THE WORLD. THESE TWO BEING YESHUA AND MOHAMMED. THEY HAVE PROVEN TO BE THE UNDOING OF THE TORAH FOR OVER TWO THOUSAND YEARS AND THEIR RIVALRY HAS NO RESULTED IN ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION. WHEREAS WE FROM THE WEST WILL BE HORRIFIED BY THE SLAUGHTER, OUR ENEMIES, AS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THEIR WAY, WILL BE JUBILANT, DANCING IN THE STREETS AND CELEBRATING THEIR HANDIWORK. CHRISTIAN EDITORS TRANSLATED H’ERETZ AS ‘THE EARTH’ IN THEIR VERSIONS BUT IT CAN ALSO MEAN "THE LAND" AS IN THE HOLY LAND WHERE JEWS HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED AND EXILED AS LONG AS THESE TWO PROPHETS HAVE RULE. IGNORING THE FACT THAT THESE PAST FEW SENTENCES WEREN’T POSITIVE OUTCOMES BUT INSTEAD WERE VICTORIES BY THE ENEMIES OF MANKIND. ONE MY WONDER HOW TWO RELIGIOUSLY OPPOSED FORCES COULD BE UNITED IN THEIR JUBILATION OVER A SLAUGHTER OF THIS MAGNITUDE, THEN ONE ONLY HAS TO LOOK AT THE LONG HISTORY OF THE CRUSADES AND SEE HOW THEY GLORIFIED IN THEIR DEATH AND DESTRUCTION WHILE THEY SLAUGHTERED ONE ANOTHER.
11"And after three and a half days, The Living Spirit from God entered into them and they stood on their feet and The Spirit of Life fell upon them* and great fear came over those who saw them." THREE AND A HALF DAYS, JUST AS WITH THE 42 MONTHS, OR THREE AND A HALF GENERATIONS, THE REFERENCE TO THE SLAUGHTER IS THAT IT WILL GO ON FOR THIS VERY EXTENDED PEIORD OF TIME. BUT IN THAT TIME, THOSE THAT HAVE STOOD WITH YAHWEH, THE JEWS AND THE OTHERS FAITHFUL TO HIS LAWS WILL GATHER THEIR STRENGTH AND ONCE AGAIN THEY WILL ASSERT THEMSELVES OVER THEIR ENEMIES AND THEY WILL FIGHT WITH THE DETERMINATION TO WIN, WHICH INCLUDES RELEASING WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION IN ORDER TO END THE BATTLE ONCE AND FOR ALL. AND FROM THE ENEMY CAMP AFTER THIS LONG TIME, THEY WILL COME TO FEAR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE AND RECOGNIZE THAT THE EVEIL FOR WHICH THEY FOUGHT WAS INHERENTLY WRONG.
12"And they heard a great voice from Heaven that said to them, 'Come up here.' And they went up to Heaven in a cloud and their enemies gazed at them." AN ENDLESS WAVE OF BOMBING AND AERIAL ATTACKS THAT IS SO DENSE THAT THE PLANES APPEAR TO BE A MASSIVE CLOUD APPEARING OVER OUR ENEMIES.
13"And in that hour there was a great earthquake and one out of ten cities fell, and the names of men who were killed in The earthquake were seven thousand, and the rest were in fear and gave glory to God who is in Heaven." THE RELENTLESS WAVE OF BOMBINGS WITH WEAPONS CAPABLE OF LEVELLING CITIES RESULTS IN 10% OF ALL THE STRUCTURES AND LAND DESTROYED IN THE REGION. THE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION IS SO GREAT THAT THE ENEMY SUES FOR A TREATY. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE BATTLE IS OVER BUT SUCH IS NOT THE CASE AS WE SEE FROM THE NEXT LINE.
14"Behold, two woes are gone and, behold, the third woe comes at once." A SECOND HIATUS IN THE NEVER ENDING WAR. AS IS OUR NATURE, WE ASSUME THE BEST OF INTENTIONS FROM OUR ENEMIES. WE STILL HAVE NOT LEARNED AND SOON THE FINAL WOE WILL BE UPON US.
As the end of Chapter Four indicates, we that stand at the right hand of the Almighty have survived but only two of the woes. We took the battle against the localized armies, militias, and terrorist groups of our enemy and it would appear that we have soundly defeated them. But this is the Middle East where common sense and logic does not prevail. This is a region where a world has constantly waged war over a narrow coastal strip of land from which civilizations, cultures and religions have been birthed entirely out of proportion with its size or significance. And whatever one assumes to know about the region, they quickly come to the realization that they know nothing. God instructed Saul to kill every man, woman, child, and beast of the Amalekites and accept no ransom for their lives, but in his mercy, Saul decided to spare them from the total eradication, ultimately leading to his demise and loss of his kingdom to David. Eleazar's vision will show us in the next few chapters how little we've learned from this classic story in the Torah. The prophecy that Eleazar took from the Angel was definitely a bitter pill to swallow and no amount of sugar to follow would ever remove the sourness from the belly. We are not far away from the time of the events in this story. You can see that on your news channel, in the voices of some politicians that have seen the truth of the current events. A crushing tide is rising and we are not prepared. Woe to us, we are not prepared!
