Bible SYMBOLS Defined


Why is the Bible cloaked in SYMBOLS? Jesus said, “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in PARABLES, that seeing they may NOT SEE, And hearing they may NOT UNDERSTAND” (Luke 8:10). "But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and FALL BACKWARD, and BE BROKEN, and SNARED, and TAKEN." (Isa. 28:13). "He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot" (Pr. 9:7). Our Lord spoke in parables so they wouldn't be responsible for their sins. We shouldn't cast our "pearls before swine" (Matt. 7:6). "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him" (John 6:44). The rest "have eyes but do not see" and "ears but do not hear" (Jer. 5:21). Noses but can't smell (Deut. 4:28; Ps. 115:6). The Bible is written in CODE to HIDE its meaning from the unconverted. That way only those who OBEY the Scriptures will understand. None of the WICKED will understand (Dan. 12:10), but "a good understanding have all they who DO his commandments" (Ps. 111:10). Knowledge brings RESPONSIBILITY for actions. But "If ye were blind, ye should have no sin" (John 9:41). Many of the apocalyptic prophecies were given while the prophets were in a HOSTILE foreign land. One reason God cloaked the prophecies in SYMBOLS was to PROTECT the messages. A "LEGEND" is therefore needed:

• Afflict (soul) -- Fast (Isa. 58:5; Ps. 35:13) which has the double meaning of accelerate.
Arrows -- bitter words (Gen. 37:4)
• Amen -- Amen-hotep (sungod) or our Lord whose name is Amen (Rev. 3:14; 2 Cor. 1:20) -- Truth.
• Angel -- Messenger (Daniel 8:16; 9:21, Luke 1:19, 26, Hebrews 1:14); Star
• Americans -- "world-beaters" (has a good and bad connotation); "Yanks" sounds like ankh, a pagan cross. "A number of men" (Rev. 13:18) is 666. "Rank" is stink. Manasseh means "Forget".
• Actor -- One who follows a Script(ure) from memory (good); alternately the word for Greek (Javanese) actors was "hypocrites" (bad) because nobody wants to acknowledge the "elephant in the room" by stating the unpopular truth that "The Emperor has no clothes." They want to conform to "the majority." Wishful thinking becomes hypocrisy.
• Arians -- Herodotus says the Medians were ARII (7:68). Reuben, Gad and half-Manasseh were placed by Tiglath-Pileser in the mountain district of Great Media, a region expressly called HARA (1 Chr. 5:26; Ar being a mountain). In fact all ten tribes of Israel were placed in the "cities of the Medes" (2 Ki. 17:6). Also the Arian language is Hebraic, and like Hebrew, has three sibillants (Moore, Lost Tribes, pp.288-290, 299). HARA was named ARIA, ARIANA and ARACHOSIA by the Greeks (see Ptolemy). It contains the city of HARAT. According to the black obelisk discovered in the ruins of the palace of Nimrod which is now in the British Museum, the people or leader of the ARIANS was called ESAKSKA (Isaac) and their principal cities were "Beth-Telabon, Beth-Everak and Beth-Tsida" in 670 B.C. These ARIANS must have migrated to Thrace because, according to Stephanus, Thrace was called ARIA. Diodorus Siculus says, "many conquered peoples were removed to other homes, and two of these became very great colonies: the one was composed of Assyrians and was removed to the land between Paphlagonia and Pontus, and the other was drawn from MEDIA and planted along theTanais (the River Don in ancient Scythia -- the modern Ukraine, north of the Black Sea, in southern Russia)." (2:43) Notice the areas from which these colonies came -- Assyria and MEDIA. The very areas to which the House of Israel was taken captive! "So was Israel carried away out of their own land TO ASSYRIA unto this day" (2 Kings 17:23). "The king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away INTO ASSYRIA and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the River of Gozan, and in the CITIES OF THE MEDES" (2 Ki. 17:6). Herodotus also mentions a people "north of Thrace" "who dress in the MEDIAN fashion" and "claim to be colonists from MEDIA" (5:9). From Thrace they migrated to Germany since Tacitus mentions the HARII there in SE Germany (Ger.43). The Thracian SCYTHIANS pricked and stained their bodies (Herod. 5); so did the ARII of Germany (Tacitus); the BELGAE of Britain (Caesar de Bell. Gall.), and the PIKS of Norway and Scotland (Herodian; Claudian). We believe that ARIANS or Nordic peoples are found primarily in NW Europe today. Their mission is to BLESS all nations of the earth (Gen. 22:18; Micah 5:7). Rawlinson (in "Herodotus", essay iii, p.325) says, "that the Medes were a branch of the great ARIAN family, closely allied both in language and religion to the Persians (Keturah's descendants?), another ARIAN tribe, seems now to be generally admitted....Darius Hystaspes, in the inscription upon his tomb, declares himself to be a Persian, the son of a Persian, an ARIAN of ARIAN descent." (p.77. Who Are We? By Harrison)The word aristocrateia meant primarily the rule of the Arii (nobility). The Gothic Her is a cognate. These Arians did not spring from Japheth.

• Babylon -- Rome & Constantinople (Rev. 17); New York, Meccah & America (Rev. 18) -- apostasy, confusion, rebellion (Gen 10:8-10; 11:6-9, Rev 18:2-3; 17:1-5)

• Cock's crow -- Mishna Bava Kamma 7:7 says, "We may not raise chickens in Jerusalem." Cock's crow refers to the "call of the man" (Temple Crier in Temple precinct) or "call of the rooster" everywhere else (Gemara Yoma 20b). What did the Crier say? ""Rise up, O priests, to your service, and Levites, to your platform, and Israelites to your posts!" (Matt. 26; Mk 13:35; Mk 14; Luke 22:61; John 13:38).
• Cush -- pronounced in Chaldee "Khawos", which without the digamma, becomes "Khaos." "The ancients called me (Janus) CHAOS" (Ovid Fasti 1:5:104) "Bel is confounded" (Jer.50:2) meaning "the Confounder is brought to confusion." He "divided the speeches of men ... then discord began" (Hyginus Fab 143,p.114). The symbol of Janus is a club used to "break in pieces" (Pr. 25:18; Jer. 51:20) just as Cush's Tower of Babel scattered men abroad. "Cup" is "Khus" in Chaldee.
• Cup -- (Golden) Babylon (Jer. 51:7); drunkenness, sorrow, astonishment & horror (Ez. 23:32); punishment (Jer. 25:17; 49:12); war (Jer. 51:39); fury & trembling (Isa. 51:17-21); "can ye drink of the cup that I drink of?" (Mark 10:38). "Cup" is "Khus" in Chaldee.

• East, West, North and South -- "forward", "backward", "left" and "right" (KJV) denote "east", "west", "north" and "south" -- the spectator being supposed to look toward the rising sun (Job 23:8-9). Thus Ishmaelites dwelt "before" (east of) Egypt (Gen. 25:18; also Gen. 16:7; Ex. 15:22; 1 Sam. 15:7). Mahaneh-dan "behind" (west of) Kirjath-jearim. The Mediterranean Sea is called "the uttermost" (western) sea (Deut. 11:24; Joel 2:20; Zech. 14:8). The wind of the sea is the west wind (Ex. 10:19). The west side is in Hebrew the seaward side (Ex. 27:12; 38:12). Right hand (south) (Josh. 17:7; 2 Ki. 23:13; 1 Sam. 24:24). Left hand (north) (Gen. 14:15; Josh. 19:27).

The "Lord shall punish ... the HIGH ONES ...the KINGS ... Then the MOON shall be confounded, and the SUN ashamed" (Isa. 24:21-23). The Lord's "fury" is "upon all their ARMIES ... all the HOST of HEAVEN (government) shall be dissolved ... fall down" (34:2-4). "Spiritual wickedness in the HEAVENLIES" (Eph. 6:12). "The LIGHT of the wicked shall be put out" (Job 18:5). As Jesus said, "After the tribulation of those days shall the SUN be darkened, and the MOON shall not give its light, and the STARS shall fall from heaven" (Jerusalem destroyed 70 A.D.) (Matt 24:29). Eusebius describes the ruling Roman GOVERNMENT as "celestial powers, the SUN, the MOON and the STARS" (Eccl. Hist. 10:4). The father is SUN or chief ruler, mother is the MOON and children are STARS or subordinate (Gen. 37:9-10). EARTH is "all flesh" (Gen. 6:11-12).

• Isaac's sons -- SAXONS by race (Gen 21:12; Am.7:16) or by grace (Gal. 3:29; Eph. 2:12-13). Since the Hebrew alphabet was originally written without vowel points, there was no "I" in ISAAC. "If ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed" (Gal. 3:29) -- SAXONS by grace.

• Jew -- "He is a Jew who is one inwardly and circumcision of the heart" (Rom. 2:29); "salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22). Paul called himself a Jew (Acts 21:39; 22:3) after he accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour and after he received the Holy Spirit.

• Keys -- of knowledge (Luke 11:52); of David (Rev. 3:7); of kingdom (Matt. 16:19); but not perfectly understood at "Caius College" (Latin). Janus (Nimrod) and Cybele (Semiramis) each had a key to supposedly open the doors of the kingdom of heaven. The key was the mark of sacred or civil office. Ancient keys were of great size, and might well be borne upon the shoulder. Aratus compares the constellation Cassiopeia to a key. "When the bi-folding door the warder bars, His crooked key depicts her glittering stars." (Aratus Phaen. v. 192)
• Kingdom of God -- A literal kingdom with Jerusalem as its capitol (Jer. 3:17) and Christ as its King (Luke 1:32-33) ruling the entire earth (Rev. 5:10) for a thousand years (Rev. 20:4), speaking one pure language (Zeph. 3:9) using Biblical laws to govern (Matt. 5:19-20). Only those saints who OBEY the Bible NOW will qualify to rule with Christ our Lord in the future (Dan. 7:18). The BRITISH EMPIRE foreshadows the Kingdom of God (Hosea 12:10).

• Memorials -- Ex. 12 & Lev. 23 define the Sabbath & holy days as memorials, not shadows. "This do, in REMEMBRANCE of me" (Luke 22:20) "from year to year" (Ex. 13:10), once a year (Luke 2:42), not weekly on Sunday (Acts 20:7), or "as often as you" (1 Cor. 11:26) want.
• Milky Way -- The MILKY WAY (a long green streak bordered by two white streaks) is "WHITE HAIR" (Rev. 1:14), "WHITE RAIMENT" or "WHITE ROBES" (1:13; 3:4-5,18; 4:4; 6:11; 7:9; 19:8), the AL-CAN highway (3:10), SPUTUM (3:16), an "EMERALD RAINBOW" (4:3; 10:1), a green "SEA of GLASS" (4:6; 7:1,3; 15:2) a white "CLOUD" (10:1; 11:12; 14:14), a "SCROLL" (5:1-9; 6:14; 10:2,8-10), the green trunk of a "FIG TREE" (6:13), a "GREAT MULTITUDE" (7:9), the "SMOKE" of "INCENSE" (8:4) or of the "PIT" (9:2) or of "TORMENT" (14:11) or of "GOD" (15:8) or of "HER BURNING" (18:9,18; 19:3) and "FIRE from the ALTAR" (8:5), "GREEN GRASS" (8:7), a "GREAT MOUNTAIN" (8:8), a "STAR FELL" (8:10; 9:1), "STREET" (11:8), "FLOOD" (12:15-16), white "SAND of the (green) SEA" (13:1; 20:8), "FIRE COME DOWN" (13:13; 20:9), "MOUNT ZION" (14:1), BITTER HERBS (16), Christ's "ARMIES" in white uniforms; the world's "ARMIES" in green uniforms (19:14,19), a "GREAT CHAIN" (20:1), "GOG and MAGOG" (20:8) and the green "RIVER of WATER of LIFE" (21:6; 22:1; 22:17). The STARS symbolize "CLOUDS" (1:7), "EYES" (4:6-8), weeping TEARS (5:4; 7:17; 18:11; 21:4), FALLING "STARS" (6:13; 12:4), or "FIGS" (6:13), a "SCROLL" rolled up (6:14), falling "ROCKS" (6:16), 144,000 "SERVANTS OF OUR GOD" (7:3; 14:1), "HAIL" (8:7; 11:19; 16:21), the "SEAL OF GOD" (9:4), "200,000,000 HORSEMEN" (9:16), "GENTILES" (11:2), a "MARK" (13:16; 14:9-11; 15:2; 19:20), "GRAPES" (14:18), "SORES" (16:2,11), HOLES in matzah (16), "GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES and PEARLS" etc (17:4; 18:12,16), "ARMIES" (19:14,19), "FOWLS" (19:17), "SOULS" (20:4), "CAMP of the SAINTS" (20:9), the "DEAD" (20:12-13) and "LEAVES" (22:2).
• Moon --The MOON'S position in the zodiac makes it a part of the constellation it is travelling through. The CRESCENT is a "HORN" (Rev. 5:6; 9:13) on Capricorn, or a "SICKLE" (14:14), or a two-edged "SWORD" (1:16; 2:12,16; 6:4; 19:15,21) that comes as a thief in the night (3:3) in the hand of Sagittarius. Two opposing CRESCENTS form a "BOTTOMLESS PIT" (9:2). The HALF MOON phase or thereabouts is a "BOWL" (16:2), or "CUP" (17:4; 18:6) in Virgo's hand. The gibbous phase is a BUCKET LID (11:6) or CROWN (3:11). The FULL MOON is a "LAMPSTAND" (2:5; 21:23), "WHITE STONE" (2:17), "MANNA" (2:17), "EYE SALVE" (3:18), "SEAL" (7:2; 10:4) or "MILLSTONE" (18:21). The DARK MOON in eclipse is a "SEAL" (7:2), "WOUND" (13:3), "BOTTOMLESS PIT" (20:1), or "LAKE OF FIRE" (20:10). The MOON is a "DOOR" or "GATE" that opens (FULL) and closes (CRESCENT or NEW) (3:7-8;20; 4:1; 11:19; 15:5; 19:11; 21:13). It is a "MOUTH" that opens (full) and closes (crescent) in a frown or smile (12:16; 13:5) or "BOOKS" (20:12), "FRUIT" (22:2) or "PEARLS," black or white, (21:21) in any lunar phase.

• Neighbor -- Anybody who is kind to you (Luke 10:25-37).
• Nakedness -- One's wife (Lev. 20:11,20,21)
• Nimrod -- From Hebrew "MERED" to REBEL. Ninus since he built Nineveh (Gen. 10:11) and Nineveh means "Habitation of Ninus" (Spanish Nino -- child) or Marduk or Merodach or Mars. "Osiris was black" (Plutarch De Isid. et Os. 2:359). Bacchus (holding a wine cup-- Heb. khus) means son of Cush (Anacreon p. 296) -- Nimrod.
• Naamah -- Noah's wife, seduced (Lev. 18:6) and taken by Ham to Babylon where she became Noah's Nemesis (Naamah + Isis: Gen. 4:22) -- like the whore of Rev. 17 with wine cup in her hand to make Noah (and the world) drunk.

• Star -- Angel/messenger (Rev 1:16, 20; 12:4, 7-9, Job 38:7); king (Nu. 24:17-19); Bible follower (Dan. 8:10; 12:3);

• Sword -- Word of God (Ephesians 6:17, Hebrews 4:12). "His maker gives him his sword" (Job 40:19).

• Smoke -- Heresy that obscures the light (Rev. 9:2) or God's anger (2 Sam. 22:9; Deut. 29:20). Thy Word (the Bible) is a lamp (Ps. 119:105); therefore the Koran must be dark smoke that obscures that light.

• Sam -- the last representative judge of Israel (Ex. 20:19; 1 Sam 8:7) that God spoke through was rejected in favor of a human king instead. ("persona non grata") Uncle Sam has been rejected by Americans. Manasseh ("Forget") forgot God. Using "separation of church and state" as an excuse, the Bible has been removed from our schools and government. "The LORD said unto SAMuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not (only) rejected thee, but THEY HAVE (also) REJECTED ME, that I should not reign over them." (1 Sam. 8:7) The Bible is how he COACHES us and TRAINS us to transform us into "Sam-sons".

The sun is one of seven "EYES" of the Lamb (Aries) (Rev. 5:6) or the flaming "EYES" of Sagittarius (1:14; 2:18; 19:12).

It is a "golden CROWN" on Sagittarius's head (2:10; 6:2; 9:7; 14:14) or "ten CROWNS" on the ten horns of Cancer (13:1). It is a "golden CENSER" (8:3) in the hand of Sagittarius, and a "golden ALTAR" (9:13) of Capricorn -- since both a goat and an altar have horns. The SUN is the "FACE" (10:1) or halo of Orion and "FIRE" in Gemini (11:5; 13:13; 16:8; 20:9) or Cancer (17:16). The SUN "CLOTHES" Virgo (12:1) and also makes her look pregnant "WITH CHILD" (12:2). The SUN is a "golden CUP" (15:7) or bucket in Aquarius's hand that is poured out, or the "GLORY" (18:1) of Ophiuchus. As a solar eclipse, both SUN and MOON form a "BOTTOMLESS PIT" (20:1) or "LAKE OF FIRE" (20:10,14-15) in Aries or Virgo (21:8) (and GOLD RING). The sun is also a symbol for Jesus / the gospel (Psalms 84:11, Malachi 4:2, Matthew 17:2, John 8:12; 9:5)
.

"Many were superstitiously addicted to the observance of TIMES, and made divination and conjectures upon them ... In the celebration of these TIMES (they) set up lamps in the marketplace, and crown their doors with garlands" (Bingham's Antiquities of the Christian Church, pp. 1123,1124).
• Tree -- Cross; People (Isa. 61:3); Nation (Deuteronomy 21:22-23, Psalms 92:12; 37:35). "All flesh is GRASS" (Isa. 40:6; 51:12) and "the glory of man like the FLOWER" (1 Pet. 1:24; James 1:10). "When the wicked spring like GRASS and ... do flourish... they shall be destroyed forever" (Ps. 92:7). All human rulers are TREES. "The TREE ... it is thou" (Nebuchadnezzar) (Dan. 4:20-22). "The Assyrian was a CEDAR" (Ez. 31:3; Judges 9:8-15). King David sang, "I am like a green OLIVE TREE " (Ps. 52:8) and the Jewish nation is likened to a FIG TREE (Luke 21:29-31). Green trees signify the righteous and dry trees the wicked (Ez. 20:46-47; 21:3-4; Luke 23:31).
• Tree of Life -- Obedience to the Bible (Rev. 22:14)

• Unclean (person or thing) -- Not immersed in water; not baptized. Since uncleanness is inevitable, why did Paul say no unclean person will inherit the Kingdom of God? (Gal. 5:19-21; Eph.5:3-6; Col. 3:5-6; 1 Cor. 6:9-10) Because some uncleanness is a deliberate choice: masturbating for men and refusing to practice Niddah (separation & bathing for 7 of every 28 days) for women.

• Winds -- "winds of war" (Jeremiah 25:31-33, 49:36-37; 4:11-13, Zechariah 7:14) A mighty WIND is an ARMY (Jer. 4:11-13; 49:36; 51:1-2; Dan.7:2-3).

• Wild -- Ishmael is like a "wild donkey" (Gen. 16:12) or unconverted. Esau is contrasted with Jacob -- "wild vs civilized" (tam - tame), "hairy vs smooth" (Gen. 25:27)
• Wisdom -- To depart from evil (Job 28:28); fear of the Lord, keep His commandments (Ps. 111:10; Pr. 9:19); If you continue in my word (John 8:31-32); All scripture (2 Tim. 3:16).
• Witchcraft-Sorcery-- “PHARMACY” (mistranslated “witchcraft”) or "MEDICATION" in Galatians 5:20 is a work of the flesh (Gal. 5:20). Again the King James mistranslates the Greek word, PHARMAKEIA, this time as “sorceries" -- this word means "the use or administering of DRUGS". “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the . . . PHARMACISTS . . . shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rev. 21:7-8). The word is mistranslated “sorcerers”. It comes from the Greek word PHARMAKEUS which means one who prepares or administers DRUGS --“a DRUGGIST " or “a PHARMACIST" or a “poisoner” (Strong‘s Exhaustive Concordance). First you control the drug, then the drug controls you. Then it takes your soul.

• Zion -- City of David (1 Chr. 11:5); Jerusalem (Ps. 147:12); heavenly Jerusalem (Heb. 12:22-24)
