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), "because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a LIE ... but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (2 Th. 2:10-12). He blinds the eyes, and closes up the ears, of the ungodly, so they may not see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and He should heal them" (Matt. 13:15). He "confounds the wise and makes their knowledge foolishness" (Isa. 44:25). "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. 115:6-8). 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). The CODE is "a good deal of ASTROLOGICAL fancy" as the early church knew (p.842, vol.8, Encyc. Brit. 11th ed.). "We see not our (zodiac) SIGNS; there is no more any PROPHET (to interpret), neither is there among us any that knoweth HOW LONG" (Ps. 74:9). 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. But the Bible defines its own SYMBOLS. "Do not interpretations belong to God?" (Gen. 40:8) and "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him" (Ps. 25:14). "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7). A "LEGEND" is therefore needed:

• Afflict (soul) -- Fast (Isa. 58:5; Ps. 35:13) which has the double meaning of accelerate or go without food.
Ab -- Father whence Abba. (e.g. Ab-ra-ham)
As -- Often left out, but implied. For instance, Nabal's "heart died within him, and he became a stone" (1 Sam. 25:37) rather than "as a stone." Also, "I have made thee a god to Pharaoh" (Ex. 7:1) rather than "as a god". Also, "Thou shalt be to him instead of God" (Ex. 4:16) rather than "as a god." Also, "his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt" (Gen. 19:26) rather than "as a pillar of salt".
Adon -- Governor or Regent, whence Adan, Adin, Adon, Chaddon, Chedon, Haddon or Hedon.(e.g. Esar-haddon; Nebu-chadn-ezzar)
Argo -- Argo means "company" in Hebrew. What company? Canopus, the chief star, tells us: "the possession of Him who cometh". Another star in Argo called Sephina means "multitude" in Hebrew and may be where we get the word "Ship" (Jonah 1:5). Perhaps the Egyptian account of the Flood may be Typhon, a personification of the sea (the Greek word Fumo seems to confirm it), enticing Osiris into an ark, which was then closed, and he was forced to sea. It is a curious fact that he embarked on the 17th day of the month Athyr, the very day, most probably, when Noah entered the ark ("in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month" -- Gen. 7:11). Plutarch writes that the Constellation Argo (G and K being commutable letters) represented the ship of Osiris. The Greeks called both a ship and temple, Naos. Bochart supposes the Ark was built at Strabo's Cyparisson, near a passage leading to Babylon and Seleucia. She drifted towards the north; hence the star Canopus, in the southern hemisphere, is on the ship's stern: which is so named from the Saxon stern, and the Islandic starn, a star.
Arrows -- bitter words (Gen. 37:4)
Ararat -- "the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat" (Gen. 8:4). The word Ararat occurs in three other places in Scripture: 2 Ki. 19:37; Isa. 37:38; and Jer. 51:27. In the first two it is rendered Armenia. Josephus, quoting Berosus, agrees saying, "It is said there is still some part of this ship in Armenia, at the mountain of the Cordyaeans; and that people carry off pieces of the bitumen, which they use as amulets." (Ant. 1:3,6) Mohammed's Koran says, "The ark rested on the mountain Al-Judi" (11:46). That name was probably a corruption of Giordiaean corrupted from Carduchian or land of Kurds (Kurdistan). In the three texts where "Ararat" occurs, the Targum of Onkelos has Kardu; and according to Buxtorf, the term "Kardyan" was in Chaldee synonymous with "Armenian". The Persians call it Kuhi Nuch -- Noah's Moutain. The Armenian etymology of the name of the city of Nachchevan which lies east of it is "Noah's lodging".
Avatar -- The word avatar combines three ancient words for "to come". Ab or av, from ba "to come"; at from atha "to come" and ar or arah "to come". The avatars are his comings to save, to deliver, whenever the earth and man are in peculiar danger. Nine are past, the tenth is yet to come.
Armageddon -- Har is "a mountain" & megiddo is "of men cut to pieces". Septuagint translates Zech 12:9 "megiddon" as "cut up or destroyed". Where Sisera & Jabin were defeated (Judges 5:19-20; Ps. 83:9).
• Amen -- Amen-hotep (false sungod) or our Lord whose name is Amen (Rev. 3:14; 2 Cor. 1:20) -- Truth.
"All" -- In order to prove that Noah's flood was LOCAL and LIMITED, some scholars assert that when the Bible uses the word "ALL", it means "MOST" or "SOME". "ALL the high hills that were under the WHOLE heaven were covered" (Gen. 7:19-23) doesn't really mean "ALL", they say. For instance, notice other usages: "the famine was over ALL the face of the earth ... the famine was extreme in ALL the lands" (Gen. 41:56,57) meant "the land of Canaan" (42:5) and other nearby lands, they say. "ALL the cattle of Egypt died" (Ex. 9:6) yet "the servants of Pharaoh" later had "cattle" (9:20). "The hail smote EVERY herb of the field, and brake EVERY tree of the field" but a few days later, the locust "did eat every herb of the land, and ALL of the fruit of the trees, which the hail had left" (Ex. 10:5,15). "ALL the people brake off the golden ear-rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron" (Ex. 32:3) meant "Whosoever hath any gold" (32:24). "This day will I begin to put the dread of thee, and the fear of thee, upon the nations that are under the WHOLE heaven" (Deut. 2:25) meant Canaanite nations and those bordering on Canaan, they say. "And ALL the earth sought to Solomon to hear his wisdom" (1 Ki. 10:24). Passages are numerous in which the phrase "ALL the earth" signifies only the land of Palestine (Deut. 34:1; Isa. 7:24; 10:14; Jer. 1:18; 4:20; 8:16; 12:12; 40:4; Zeph. 1:18; 3:19; Zech. 14:10). At Pentecost "there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of EVERY nation under heaven" (Acts 2:5) -- defined as "Parthians, Medes, Elamites, Mesopotamia, Judaea, Cappodocia, Pontus and Asia Minor, Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, Libyans, Romans, Cretans and Arabians" (2:9-11). Paul said the gospel "was preached to EVERY creature which is under heaven" (Col. 1:23).
• Angel -- Messenger (Daniel 8:16; 9:21, Luke 1:19, 26, Hebrews 1:14); Star; Bishop (Rev. 1:20) applied to men (in Haggai 1:13; Malachi 2:7 & 3:1). How many angels are there? Over fourteen million (Rev. 5:11). What is their purpose? They are "ministering spirits ; sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation" (Heb. 1:14); "to keep thee in all they ways" (Ps. 91:11) "contending with the devil" (Jude 9); and fighting with the devil (Rev. 12:7-8); they destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire from heaven (Gen. 19:13); and smote 185,000 Assyrians (2 Ki. 19:35) and one was sent to destroy Jerusalem (1 Chr. 21:15). They "gather together his elect" (Matt. 24:31). What are they capable of doing? They "excel in strength, and are greater "in power and might" than men (2 Pet. 2:11). They can "fly swiftly" (Dan. 9:21). "We are made a spectacle to angels" (1 Cor. 4:9). Abraham, when sending his servant to get a wife for Isaac, tells him, "The Lord God shall send his angel before thee" (Gen. 24:7). Two angels were sent to deliver Lot out of Sodom (Gen. 19:15). Daniel said, "My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lion's mouth, that they have not hurt me (Dan. 6:22). Angels ministered to Jesus after his fasting and temptation (Matt. 4:11); and an angel strengthened him while in his agony in the garden (Luke 22:43). An angel told Cornelius that his prayers were heard, and his alms had in remembrance in the sight of God: and directed him to send for Simon Peter, that he might learn the way of salvation through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 10:3). The angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought the apostles forth, when shut up by the High Priest and those with him (Acts 5:19); and afterwards delivered Peter from prison; his chains dropping off and the iron gate opening of its own accord (Acts 12:7). Angels ministered comfort to the women at the sepulcher of Jesus; and to the apostles when Jesus ascended into heaven (Acts 1:10). Some of them sinned (2 Pet. 2:4) and kept not their first estate (Jude 6) but left their habitation to be reserved in everlasting chains under darkness, until the day of judgment because they lusted after women on earth and envied man's potential (Gen. 6:2-4; Josephus, Philo, Origen, Tertullian, etc.). Different cultures around the world call them demons, Jin, faries, giants, or fates.
• Americans -- "World-beaters" has a good and bad connotation. "Yank" (YOWNaiQ -- a suckling child -- Num. 11:12) sounds like ankh, a pagan cross. "A number of men" (Rev. 13:18) is 666. "Rank" is stink. Manasseh means "Forget" because America has forgotten God. But "Who is it that overcomes the world? (a "world-beater") Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God (1 John 5:5).
Alone -- Duty often requires standing ALONE. Enoch "wisely retired from" men and hid from corrupt society (Jasher 3:2-18). He was ALONE. David said, "I am become a stranger to my brethren and an alien to my mother's children" (Ps. 69:8). A LONER. Regarding our Lord, "They all forsook him and fled" (Mark 14:50). We are "strangers and pilgrims" (ALONE) in this world (Heb. 11:13).  "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a FEW find it" (Matt. 7:13-14). Paul said, "At my first answer no man stood with me, but ALL MEN FORSOOK ME " (2 Tim. 4:16). "Be ye holy (SEPARATE), for I am holy (SEPARATE)" (Lev. 19; 1 Pet. 1:16). "I will not go up in the midst of thee, for thou art a stiff-necked people, lest I consume thee in the way" (Ex. 33:5) -- UNCONTAMINATED.
Amraphel -- The identity of Amraphel and Hammurabi is now unanimously accepted by Assyriologists and Biblical critics. Phonetically, the two names are identical. The variants of the second form are Ammi-rabi, Ammurapi, and Hammum-rabi, etc. Hammu, or Ammu, was in all probability the name of a god, as it is found in many compound names such as Sumu-hammu, Jasdi-hammu, and Zimri-hammu. The element rabi is very common in Babylonia and it means "great"; the full name, consequently, means "The god Ammu is great". "The subjects and princes of Nimrod called his name Amraphel" (Jasher 11:6). According to Rab and Samuel, Amraphel is identical with Nimrod also (see Gen. 14:1,9).
• Actor -- One who follows a Script(ure) from memory (good); alternately the word for Greek (Javanese) actors was "hypocrites" (bad) because pretentious. 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). Noble is another possible sense whence derived, the epithet hero, heroic, high, dignified, from the primitive root Her, whence we also trace the German "Herr." The Gothic Her is a cognate. The word in Sanscrit is used as well-born or lord. It is used in Hebrew and Arabic as a lion-like man, brave, invincible (Isa. 21). Thence the conquering invaders in every land have been called Aryans. This term has taken the place of those awkward compounds, Indo-Germanic and Indo-European. These Arians did not spring from Japheth.

• Balloon -- Alot of hot air that allows a person to escape from a losing argument
• Borrow -- "Let every man borrow of his neighbor" (Ex. 11:2). "Ask" or "beg" is a better translation of the same word in Proverbs 20:4. See also 1 Sam. 20:28 "asked" and Nehemiah 13:6 "obtained I leave" and 2 Chr. 20:25 "spoil" may be the best translation. The Egyptians were afraid of them and glad to be rid of them. They therefore gave them whatever they asked lest their refusal should be a means of detaining them, and bringing more plagues upon themselves.
• Baptize -- Immerse in water. Use a mikvah (pool of running water). Jacob and his family when they renounced their strange gods were commanded to "be clean and change your garments" (Gen. 35:2). At Sinai the people "washed their clothes" (Ex. 19:14) and came not near their wives (19:15).
• Baal -- Master or Ruler, whence Bel, Bal, Pal, Pil, Pol, Pul. (e.g. Bal-adan; Sar-dana-pal-us; Nabo-pol-assar; Tiglath-pil-ezer).
• British -- Covenant Man (Hebrew)
• Bear -- Medo Persia (Proverbs 28:15, 2 Kings 2:23-24, Daniel 7:5). None of the Arabic names in Ursa Major or Minor have any7 reference to a bear. Dub in Hebrew is a bear. Dubhe is strength in Hebrew and Chaldee. The bear was probably named from its strength. El Acola is explicitly sheepfold in Hebrew and Arabic. In the Persian zodiac there are three damsels walking as "the daughters of Ash," and the same figures in Ursa Minor and Argo.
• Beast -- King or Kingdom / government / political power (Daniel 7:17, 23)
• Blue (Ribbon of) -- Remembers the Law (Numbers 15:38-39). Part of the prayer shawl or poncho that every Bible-follower should wear. Keeps fringe from unravelling.
• Brass, Tin, Iron, Lead, Silver dross -- Impure Character (Ezekiel 22:20-21) of violating "my law" (22:26). "They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters" (Jer. 6:28). "Brazen". "They are bronze, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are even the dross of silver" (Ez. 22:18). "Get the lead out." "Tin man"
• Bread -- Word of God (John 6:35, 51-52, 63); Christ's body
• Brother -- whoever does the will of my father (Matt. 12:46-50); contrasted with foreigner (Deut. 17:15).The Old Testament says the same: "Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy sojourners who are in thy land within thy gates" (Deut. 24:14) (who follow your laws).
• Book of the Law -- Deuteronomy (Deut. 31:24-26)
• Book of the Covenant -- Exodus 21-23 (Ex. 24:7)
• 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) The common herd of untutored rabble. The vulgar throng.
• Baal Peor -- "Naked god" was probably the same infamous deity as the Greek Hermes and the Latin Priapus
• Blasphemy -- From Leviticus 24:11, the Jews teach that the name Jehovah cannot be pronounced without blaspheming, because the original will bear that interpretation (Lev. 24:16). But it should be observed that the original word "Nakav" signifies to curse as well as barely to name or pronounce. As it is rendered in Numbers 23:11,13,25,27, 24:10 and Job 3:8, it will bear no other interpretation.
• Buddha -- Statue of a black man with wide nose, thick lips and wooly hair. Buddha was a negro called Cush who was known as Thoth in Egypt (Philo's intro to Caesarea's Praepar.) and Hermes ("son of Ham") in Greece. "Hermes or Thoth (was) an Ethiopian" (or Cushite) (Diod. Sic.). Cush (Buddha) was Mercury in Rome; Teut in Germany (Lucan Pharsal. 1:444-6); Odin in Scandinavia; and Woden in Mexico (Buddha in Tamul is Poden; P & W are identical in Sanscrit). In Mexico, human sacrifices were offered to a god with negro features called Wodan (Prescott's conquest of Mexico 3:6 p.168). "Wodan of the Chiapenese (Mexicans) was the grandson of" Noah (Humboldt Mex. Res. 1:320 p.134). Woden's Day in Germany is Buddha's day in China or Mercury's day in France. Buddha's triratna is Mercury's Caduceus. Hyginnus says, "for many ages men lived ... all speaking one language. But after Mercury interpreted (divided) the speeches of men ... the same individual distributed the nations. Then discord began" (Fab 143 p.114). Cush created "Chaos" at the Tower of Babel. Janus says, "the ancients called me "Chaos." (Ovid, Fasti 1:104) (cp. Jer. 1:2) Some scholars think Phut moved to India and became the "divine Buddha" there -- the father of Buddhism. Others believe Boodha ("He who cometh") is derived from Bootes the constellation which means "He who cometh" (Mazzaroth, chapter: Mythology of India, p.21).
• Black -- black (horse) -- Roman famine and death "Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine" (Lam. 5:10; Matt. 24:7; Rev. 6:5; Job 10:21); judgment of sin (Jude 13); grief. "We have walked mournfully" (margin "in black") (Mal. 3:14). Black (sackcloth) -- “You removed my sackcloth (grief) and clothed me with joy” (Psalm 30:11; Jer. 14:2). "I clothe the heavens in black and make sackcloth their covering.” (Isa. 50:3) "I go about blackened but not by the sun" (Job 30:28,30). By the burning ulcers and black scabs, Job's skin was black (Job 2:7-8). Two witnesses are "clothed in (black -- 6:12) sackcloth" (11:3) because they're mourning (Ps. 30:11). Why are they mourning? Because they are hungry, poor, hated (Luke 6:2) and persecuted "for righteousness' sake" (Matt. 5:10). The "world hath hated them because they are not of the world" (John 17:14). "Because you are not of the world... the world hates you" (John 15:19). "Everyone that doeth evil hateth the light ...lest his deeds should be reproved (John 3:20). Christianity is not about "winning friends." Jeremiah 8:21 says, "For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me." The root means rather 'foulness' or 'squalor' than 'blackness' (cp. Job 6:16,)" (Pulpit Commentary). He is sad in visage with grief (Joel 2:6).

• Christian -- "Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" (Rom. 8:9) "Holy Spirit, whom God hath given to them that obey him" (Acts 5:32). "By their fruits you will know them" (Matt. 7:16).
• Crown -- A Glorious Ruler or Rulership (Proverbs 16:31, Isaiah 28:5, Isaiah 62:3)
• Consecrate -- (for the priesthood) Literally means "Filling your hand" with the sacrifice offered up to God (see 2 Chr. 13:9; Ex. 29:24; Lev. 8:27)
• Chariot of Fire -- Elijah (2 Ki. 2:12); Elishah (2 Ki. 13:14); "and it was upon the seventh day that Enoch ascended into heaven in a whirlwind, with horses and chariots of fire" (Jasher 3:36).
• Circumcised -- converted (Rom. 2:29); "decapitated"; uncircumcised means anything not suitable for use. Moses explained that he was "not eloquent, but slow of speech" (Ex. 4:10) and therefore of uncircumcised lips" (Ex. 6:30). Jeremiah says of the Jews that "their ear is uncircumcised" (Jer. 6:10) meaning "they cannot hearken". He also says that the House of Israel "are uncircumcised in heart" (9:26) meaning they don't seek knowledge. Also when the fruit of trees was not to be eaten it was called uncircumcised (Lev. 19:23). In Exodus 4:25-26, Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and it fell to the ground (not "cast it at his feet"). Then said Zipporah to her son, "A bloody relation (Heb. chatan) thou art to me" (not "husband"). It was a customary form ceremony. Like becoming a "blood brother". Aben Ezra on this text says that the child on the day of his circumcision was called "chatan" (a relation). "So he let him go" could be equally rendered "And she departed from him" (referring to Zipporah) to her father Jethro since it would have been dangerous to carry the child further, the inflammation rising to its height on the third day after circumcision (Gen. 34:25). Herodotus says that the people of Palestine learned this practice from the Egyptians (Her. 2:104). But the books of Moses, that command circumcision, were published above a thousand years before Herodotus. When Joseph became famous in Egypt, it is not hard to conceive that circumcision became fashionable in Egypt at that time. In fact, one of the proofs Joseph gave to his brothers to prove he was indeed Joseph was probably showing them he was circumcized. He told his brothers to "come near to him" and the Egyptians "to go out" (Gen. 45:4). It was a private secret part of his anatomy. This would be no proof at all if Egyptian civilization were all circumcized at this time.
• Church -- body of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23).
• Cannibal -- Cahna-Bal (priest of Baal who ate small children sacrificed to Baal) (Ps. 106:28,37) . In Mexico from twenty to fifty thousand victims were said to have been offered yearly.
• Cornerstone -- Christ (Eph. 2:20)
• Candlestick -- Church of God (Rev. 1:20); red radius wax candle with lunar white flame or solar flame or solar brass holder.
• Covenant Man -- Brit ish (Hebrew)
• Character -- The ability to determine right from wrong, and then to choose right and avoid wrong even if everyone else disagrees and opposes you.
• Clothing -- Character; it can be filthy rags (Isa. 59:6; 64:6) and iniquity (Zech. 3:4); or it can be praise (Isa. 61:3); vengeance (Isa. 59:17) and "I put on righteousness and it clothed me" (Job 29:14)
• Cancer -- Cancer means "Kan" (cattle) + Kir (gained). There is no trace of a Crab or Scarab beetle in Genesis 49. The star name Asselli means asses or cattle. On Issachar's standard was the strong ass, still recognized in the stars of Cancer, where two stars are called the northern and southern ass, and in the name Statio Typhonis, the ass having been the emblem of Typhon.
• Cock's crow -- Mishna Bava Kamma 7:7 says, "We may not raise chickens in Jerusalem." The trumpet sound called "the cock" or in Latin "Gallus." 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).
• Calendar -- Ingathering, when they gathered in the fruit of the land, is said to be in the end of the year (Ex. 23:16). Yet it was celebrated in the seventh month (Lev. 23:34,39). To reconcile these two passages, realize that Israel had two calendars -- civil and religious. April became the first month of the religious calendar (Ex. 12:2,18; Lev. 23:5; Num. 28:16; 32:3) and October was the first month of the civil calendar.
• Congregation -- The ASSEMBLY of Elders and Magistrates, not the whole body of Israelites. There were twelve captains of the twelve tribes named (Numbers 2:3-25 & 10:14-28). Also there were 58 heads of families next in rank to the twelve (Num. 26:5-50): Reuben 4, Simeon 5, Gad 7, Judah 5, Issachar 4, Zebulon 3, Manasseh 8, Ephraim 4, Benjamin 8, Dan 1, Asher 5, and Naphtali 4 called "princes of the CONGREGATION" . Adding 58 + 12 = 70 "princes of the CONGREGATION". "He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the CONGREGATION of the Lord. A bastard ... an Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the CONGREGATION of the Lord" (Deut. 23:1-3) -- not excommunicated from the benefits of society, but excluded from being a judge. Isaiah 56:3-5 makes this distinction clear. Foreigners and eunuchs that obey the Bible will be given "a place and a name better than of sons and daughters". But judges need courage, and the consequence of the loss of the male organs is a lack of courage. See Numbers 10:27; 35:12,14,25; Joshua 20:6 where the CONGREGATION is spoken of as judging, or sitting in judgment. See also Leviticus 8:3 where Moses is commanded to gather the CONGREGATION together and the ASSEMBLY was gathered together. And Leviticus 9:1 where the ASSEMBLY is defined as Moses, Aaron, his sons, and the elders of Israel. They sat in the gates of cities (Deut. 16:18; 21:29; Lam. 5:14). The death penalty was prescribed for disobedience to judges (Deut. 17). The supreme magistrate is called a king (Deut. 17:14) and is chosen from among themselves. (see San Hedrin) The fact that judges were sometimes called kings is evident because in several of the transactions in Judges which occurred during the interregnum of the judges, the statement is made that they occurred "when there was no king in Israel" (Judges 17:6; 18:1; 19:1; 21:25) -- that is, in the interim between the reigns of judges.
• Counterfeit -- An idolatrous golden calf worship festival is called a Feast of Jehovah (Ex. 32:5). This is a common excuse of all idolaters. Cicero apologizes for the worship paid to images in his day (Cic. de Nat. Deor.) and Julian tries to excuse his own idolatry (Jul. Fragm. Orat. five Epist. p. 292). By this very argument the Bishop of Meaux (Papist Rep. and Misrep.) tries to evade the charge of idolatry, which is made by Protestants against the image-worship of the Church of Rome.
• Cronus -- (Kronos) How do we know Cronus and Ham are the same person?
1. The descent of Cronus (Ham) from Ouranus and Ge (Noah & his wife) is acknowledged in all heathen Theogonies (Hesiod, Apollodorus, in Diodorus Siculus's account of the Theologia Atlantiorum, and in Euemerus Messenius transcribed by Eusebius).
2. Comparing the number of generations set down in Sanchoniathon from Protogonus to Cronus with the number of generations set down in Moses from Adam to Ham, there are eleven in both authors.
3. Uranos has another son besides Cronus, named Iapetos, the Greek equivalent to Noah’s son Japheth (Yapet). Japheth and his offspring represent the Greeks and other European groups.
4. Hesiod's Theogony 154-166 says Cronus or Kronos (aka Belus -- Eusebius Prep For Gospel, p.375) castrated and deposed his father Uranos. This parallels what Ham did to Noah: Uranos, like Noah, is a patriarch responsible for populating the world. Uranos’s youngest son (Cronus) performs a shameless act against him, like Noah’s youngest son, Ham, does to him (Gen. 9:22).
5. Furthermore, Eusebius Prep. Evangel. 9:17 says, "There was at first Belus, who is Cronus (Ham); but of him came another, 1. Belus, and 2. Canaan, who was or begot the father of the Phoenicians; his son too was 3. Coum, whom the Greeks call Asbolos, the father of the Aethiopes, the brother of 4. Mestraim, the father of the Egyptians" (Eusebius Prep. Evangel. 9:17). Adjusting this translation to the four sons of Ham (Gen. 10:6) is easy enough since Canaan and Misraim are mentioned by both Eusebius and Moses. The third name Coum is slightly altered from Cush, the Shin being changed into a Mu, only to express the accusative case in a form more like the Greek termination of that case. The fourth name Belus, the successor of his father Ham in the dominions over Africa, must be Phut who bears the title of his father among the Babylonians since he is here called by the Chaldean title of honour Belus. Cronus must therefore be Ham.
The name Jupiter was given to Ham in later ages (Jupiter-Amon) by the Greeks (Japethites), who were fond of foreign gods, to whose proper name they prefixed Jupiter, as in Jupiter-Belus, Jupiter Casius, etc. But this was incorrect since Jupiter and Ham (Amon) were brothers, not the same person. Ham is known as Jupiter-Amon by Egyptians, Thammuz or Adonis by Phoenicians, and Saturn by Sanchoniatho.
Thoth was Cush, who was not the "son" of Mizraim, but his successor. When Typhon (Shem) killed Osiris (Mizraim), Thoth (Cush) was appointed king in his place by Cronus (Ham) (see Sanchoniathon). Therefore Thoth (Cush) is the "successor" of Mizraim, not his "son" (p.202, Worship of the Dead). Belus (Cush), the first king of Babylon, was king of Africa also (Lempriere, Egyptus).

• Cherub -- A winged bull with human head was called Kirub by Chaldeans and Assyrians from the 10th to 5th century BC. It was a composite of man, lion, ox and eagle where each had four faces and four wings and was "full of eyes" (Ez. 1:10; Rev. 4:6-7). The Greeks called them Griffins or Gryphs who guarded the gold of the north. Egyptians called them Sphinxes. The winged bulls and winged lions planted at the gateways of Babylonian and Assyrian palaces and temples were looked upon as supernatural watchers who guarded the entrance from evil, just as the Cherubim guarded Paradise from sinful man. The Assyrian word kurubu means a large bird of prey -- an eagle or vulture (p.135, Beginnings of History, Lenormant).
• 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. Cush or Hermes was also called Mercury, Thoth, Thoyth, Tautus, Trismegistus, etc.
• 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.
• Cloud -- "a CLOUD of witnesses" (Heb. 12:1); "Thou shall be like a CLOUD to cover the land, thou, and all thy HORDES, and MANY PEOPLE with thee" "a GREAT COMPANY, and a MIGHTY ARMY" (Ez. 38:9,15; Jer. 4:13)

• Dew -- Scripture; "My doctrine shall drop as the rain; My speech shall distill as the dew" (Deut. 32:2).
• Dirty
-- iniquity (Zech. 3:4)
• Dragon -- Satan or his agency:  the Roman Empire; China; the Ottoman Empire.(Isaiah 27:1; 30:6, Psalms 74:13-14, Revelation 12:7-9, Ezekiel 29:3, Jeremiah 51:34). 
• Dove -- Holy Spirit (Mark 1:10)
• Decan -- Three decans per sign that develop or extend the meaning of that sign to which they belong. "In the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established" (2 Cor. 13:1). "A threefold cord is not quickly broken" (Eccl. 4:12). For instance, in Aries, where the Lamb BREAKS the BONDS of his church, Cassiopeia is SETTING FREE her hair; Perseus is BREAKING BONDS of Andromeda; and Cetus (Satan) is BOUND and SEALED. Albumazer, in his enumeration of the Decans, says that "they were known all over the world, and had caused long speculation, and that many had attributed to them a divine and even a prophetic virtue."
• "Delight in the Lord" -- (Ps. 37:4) means "Delight to do God's will" (cp. Ps. 40:8; Pr. 11:20; Jer. 9:24; 1 Sam. 15:22) "and he shall give thee the desires of thy heart"
• "Do Not Be Afraid" -- this phrase appears 365 times in the KJV Bible.
• Debt -- An ingenious substitute for the whip and chain of the slave-driver. "Borrower is slave to lender" (Pr. 22:7). Mortgage means "death pledge".
• Dark -- Knows not where he goes (John 12:35); hateth his brother (1 John 2:9) (with a cause -- Ps. 139:22)(without a cause -- Matt. 5:22) To "open my dark saying" is to reveal a riddle (Ps. 49:3-4).
• Dagon -- Oannes. How do we know Cush was Oannes? 1. "Ninus is Nimrod" (Appollodoros, Fragments 68). 2. Semiramis was first the wife of the Syrian (Assyrian) chief Oannes (aka Dagon) from whom Ninus took her (Diodorus Siculus Bibliotheca 2:6). Oannes was probably Nimrod's own father, Cush. The story agrees exactly with the Grecian myth of Vulcan, Venus and Mars where Venus was first the wife of Vulcan (ie Cush), and was taken from him by Mars (ie Nimrod). According to another tradition, he dethroned Djemschid (Cush) and married his sister (p.76, Worship of the Dead). 3. Ninus and Semiramis were the first rulers of the Babylonian Empire (Cory's Fragments p.66). "The wife of Ninus and his successor in the kingdom was Semiramis" (p.431, Eusebius, Prep. For Gospel). 4. He became the HUSBAND of his MOTHER (Bunsen's Egypt vol.1, pp.438-439; Rawlinson's Herodotus vol.1 essay 10, pp. 625,626). Since "Cush begat Nimrod" (Gen. 10:8), we know Cush's wife was Nimrod's mother. Therefore Cush was Oannes or Dagon. Bryant observes that a stone Idol in Easter island was named Dago, the Phenician Dagon.
• Day -- Not our modern 24-hour day, but 12 hours ("Are there not twelve hours in the day" -- John 11:9); Babylonians and Assyrians knew of no other than "The day and night were equal, six hours of day, six hours of night" (Cuneiform Inscriptions of West Asia, vol. 111., pl.51, Nos. 1 & 2). The twelve Babylonian hours were reckoned from one sun to the other, just as Censorinus says (De die natal., 23). Literal year (Ez 4:6, Nu 14:34) "For it is the DAY of the Lord's vengeance, and the YEAR of recompenses for the controversy of Zion" (Isa. 34:8); 1000 years ("one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" -- 2 Pet. 3:8). If the earth didn't rotate originally till the Fall, a day would have equalled a year in Eden. Once it started rotating on its axis, a day was only 24 hours.
• Deceitfulness of Riches -- What are the lies that wealth promises us? What are these fiscal falsehoods? 1. "Getting money is the goal of life." It is not. "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul"? (Matt 16:26) “But seek first the kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matt 6:33). “It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). 2. "Money gives a life of ease and comfort." Usually not. "A man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth" (Luke 12:15). Before you know it the things you own begin to own you. Responsibilities increase. Stress and worry increase. Every possession, every investment, every business requires more and more of your time and attention to hold it all together. Soon what felt like freedom begins to feel like slavery. "The more possessions, the more distractions." -- Hillel "You cannot serve both God and Money" (Matt 6:24). 3. "You can get rich quick" . No you can't. Not long term. Studies show that the vast majority of lottery winners are in an even worse financial situation a few years after winning a jackpot than they were before. Why is that? Proverbs 13:11 Says, "Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase." Why is this so? Because "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." "Get rich quick" schemes breed "Get poor quick" reactions. That's why they don't work. "Easy come, easy go." The success doesn't last. Working diligently and consistently over time with savings and investment will result in increase. But Ponzi schemes, MLM programs, the lottery and gambling only give an illusion of success. This is the "prosperity of fools" (Pr. 1:32). There are many stories of lucky lotto winners whose lives were seemingly cursed after winning big. Stories have been written about this amazing paradox. How do they lose millions of dollars in five to ten years? 1. Crack addiction. 2. IRS. 3. Charity to friends. 4. Vacations. 5. Partying. 6. Donations to church. 7. Gambling. 8. Lawsuits and divorce. 9. Quit job. 10. Suicide. Provide things honest in the sight of all men by rejecting financial vanity and being a faithful and diligent worker (Rom 12:17; Eph 4:28). Both God and men will respect your character and reward your efforts."The prosperity of fools shall destroy them" (Pr. 1:32). "Those who desire [crave] to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1 Tim. 6:9-10) 4. "Poverty is a curse and riches are a blessing" Not necessarily.  In the Old Testament each year King Solomon received 666 talents of gold (1 Ki.10:14). In the New Testament the letters of the Greek word "euphoria," from which the word "wealth" is translated, total 666. Wealth is a great corrupter of people and institutions.  King Solomon had great wealth and yet ended up an apostate. Poverty long restrained poor nations from the vices of luxury (degeneracy). Great nations degenerate under the influence of riches and the diligent poor nations take their place throughout history.
• Demon-worship -- Demons are envious of good men, detering them from righteousness, lest by men's perseverance in good conduct, those men should attain a happier result from Destiny than the demons did. Eve may have been seduced by mistaking a serpent for an angelic seraph since "seraphim" means "fiery ones" (angels -- Isaiah 6) and Isaiah also uses "saraph" to describe a "fiery flying serpent" that is not an angel. Serapis, the king of Hell, is from Sarph, Celtic for a serpent. Some angels were called Seraphs, from flying serpents of a shining appearance. The Egyptian Cneph was figured as a serpent with a hawk's head to denote his sagacity and vigilance. In fact, Satan is an apostate seraph, the genuine Serapis, an obsolete god of Egypt in the time of Herodotus and deemed by Porphyry the Prince of Demons. (Eusebius Praep.) He "deceiveth the whole world" (Rev. 12:9) out of envy so that men depart from virtue and good conduct and commit vice. He has used oracles such as Delphic, Dodonean and Ammonean. Moses teaches us that God permits pseudo-prophets (Deut. 13) to try the faith of mankind. But where an oracle utters cruelties; as when the Messenian conduct they should attain as were told to devote a virgin to the infernal Gods; Agamemnon, to slay his daughter: Or fallacies, as that Pyrrhus the Romans should subdue: Croesus a great power should subvert; so on Alexander's application in his last illness, Serapis said, It is best for him to stay where he is: They may truly subscribe to the Clarian Apollo's confession, "We are angels endued with an inconsiderable portion of the Godhead." In this equivocal manner a Druidess told Diocletian, "He would be Emperor, when he had slain Aper, a Boar; many Boars he slew unsuccessfully, till he recollected that Numerian's father in law was named Aper. Cambyses was told he should die at Ecbatan ; he avoided the Median city, but died at Ecbatan in Syria. But Ammon's oracle plainly told Cimon's legates, that "Cimon was with them" (Plut. Cimon); similar to Samuel's prediction respecting Saul. On their return they found that Cimon was at that time dead. Pyrrhus was told, " He should die when he saw a Wolf encounter a Bull." He died on the day of his seeing this sight represented on the monument of Danaus. Sylla was told, he should die in the height of his life; the truth of this prediction he experienced and attested. The head of Orpheus told Cyrus, their deaths shouId be similar. These accounts prove the operations of those apostate spirits; most times cruel; often fallacious; some times predicting such truths as their powers could attain to; aiming by it to seduce man, by rivalling God's prescience. There is such a coincidence between Calphurnia's dream, and the Augur's prediction, concerning Cesar's murder, that it seems quite unreasonable to conclude both fortuitous, confirmed as they were by the event. So when Tiberius told Galba, he should have a taste of empire; and when Thrasillus declared his own imminent danger to Tiberius, invisible spirits seem to have conducted the omens, otherwise quite precarious. Tacitus records Vespalian's miraculous cures under the influence of Serapis, whom he says some esteemed Esculapius; some, Osiris; some, Jove ; some, Pluto; some also deeming his image to have been removed to Racotis from Memphis. Horrid expiations invidiously intended to rival the grand expiation by the Woman's seed, begin from earliest antiquity; for Manetho wrote that Amosis abolished human victims in Egypt; Hercules did so in Gaul; Cecrops at Athens. Demons prescribed their own rites of invocation; Hecate appointed her own statue to be of Ivory, or Parian marble, with golden sandals, entwined with a Snake from head to foot. Theurgy, or (not to fay divine information in consequence. Hence many surprising predictions to avert calamity (inflicted by demons) through remedies more horrible even than those calamities; as by interring alive a male and female Gaul and Greek in Rome; or the human sacrifices to the Minotaur. Plutarch writes that "Araxes, king of Armenia being promised success against the Persians if he would sacrifice his two daughters, slew those of Miefalcus, an Armenian Lord; but fleeing from his resentment was drowned in the Helmus, from him named Araxes." Thus the most evil actions were considered divine ceremonies.  "If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them, Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul" (Deut. 13:1-3). The Carthaginians, when beaten by Agathocles, sacrificed 200 noble youths. Vobiscus says, Aurelian consented to sacrifice all his captives at the instance of the Sibylline oracles. The Moabites even sacrificed their children in flames of fire to Moloch; which in Celtic signifies a molester. Also there are examples of spirits at work at Zoan and Endor in Scripture."Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee" (1 Sam. 15:23)."Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of demons" (1 Cor. 10:20). Then "the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him" (1 Sam. 16:14). A medium (ob -- skin bottle filled and possessed by a demon-- Lev. 20:27; Job 32:18-19) and a witch (a harlot who gives her body to a demon in exchange for services -- Ex. 22:18; 2 Ki. 9:22) both voluntarily "drink" the "cup of demons" by participating in magic, oracles (Acts 16:16), spirit-writing, voices of the unseen, omens, tokens, spells, potions, amulets, charms, fetishes, relics, images, pictures, crosses, apparitions, "signs and lying wonders" (2 Th. 2:9), clairvoyance, insensibility to pain, becoming "mesmerizers like the Philistines" (Isa. 2:6; Jer. 27:9-10), table-turning, table-rapping, wee-gee boards, levitating objects and people, seances, remote viewing, crystal balls, worshipping "all the host of heaven" (2 Ki. 21:3-6), using drugs (Gal. 5:20; Rev. 21:8), communicating with the dead (teraphim ancestors "spoke" -- Zech. 10:2; 1 Sam. 15:23) and "they sacrifice to demons" via idolatry (Zech. 13:2; 1 Cor. 10:19-21) and passing their children through the fire (St. John's Eve) (Deut. 18:10-12). Demons dwell inside idols (Lev. 17:7; Deut. 32:17; Ps. 106:37; 1 Cor. 10:19-21). "For all the gods of the nations (Jupiter, Mars, Venus, etc.) are demons" (Ps. 96:5; 2 Chr. 11:15). "Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto demons" (Ps. 106:37; Lev. 17:7). Demons "forbid to marry and command to abstain from meats" (1 Tim. 4:3). "They call those gods which, if they had life and breath, and a man should meet them unexpectedly, would pass for monsters." -- Varro, the Roman historian. The word necromancer (Deut. 18:11) means "one who enquires of the dead". The priests of Persia could perform artful tricks by the power if the devil. They were called Magi, from which we derive the word magician, since these Magi, at least up to the time of Smerdis, taught that the Evil Spirit was to be worshipped as well as the Good Spirit. That opens the door to demon possession.
• Dog -- Has good and bad connotations: Dogs can detect the scent of drugs, explosives, and can track fugitives. Their sense of smell is possibly 100,000 times as acute as humans. Dogs can hear sounds in much greater ranges - both pitch and volume, and are capable of hearing and pinpointing sounds at a much farther distance. They are therefore used to guard and keep watch. Israel's watchdog (Isa. 56:10). Toto pulled back the curtain on a wizard and bit a witch. A dog can also refer to underdog (Matt. 10:16); "black dog" (depression) (Job 30:28-30); treated like a dog (John 3:20). Adjective "dogged" means stubborn and determined; verb "to dog someone" is to follow closely and continuously and cause difficulty; Other meanings include "shameless woman" (Ecclus. 26:25); male prostitute (2 Ki. 23:7); and apostate (2 Pet. 2:22; Matt. 7:6).

• Egypt -- Iron furnace (Jer. 11:4); sin (Heb. 11:25-26; Rev. 11:8).
• Earthen Vessel -- human body (Lev. 14:5; 2 Cor. 4:7; 13:4); human body a house of clay (Job 4:19).
• Euphrates -- Drying up (Rev. 16:12) means fall of Turkey just as "swelling of the Jordan" (Jer. 49:19) means rise of Israel. Compare Isaiah 8:7 -- Assyria.
• Earthquake -- political upheaval. It signifies "the REMOVING of those THINGS that are SHAKEN ... that those THINGS which cannot be shaken may REMAIN.... a KINGDOM which cannot be moved" (Heb. 12:27-28).
• Evil Eye -- The phrase seems to mean STINGY. For instance “thine eye be evil against” (Deut. 15:9) could be translated "SELFISH toward." Likewise, “his eye shall be evil toward” (KJV) means “he will act SELFISHLY toward” (Deut. 28:54,56). The contexts indicate that those referred to refused to share with those who had less. SELFISHNESS also fits the context of Proverbs 28:22 describing one who “hastens after wealth.” In Proverbs 23:6 the context allows the RSV translation of “STINGY.” SELFISHNESS or envy is the apparent meaning of Matthew 20:15 and may possibly be related to the situation in Matthew 6:22-23 and Luke 11:34.
• Elijah -- He will "restore all things" (Matt. 17:11). "He shall turn the hearts of the FATHERS to the CHILDREN and the hearts of the CHILDREN to their FATHERS" (Mal. 4:6) meaning "If you were Abraham's CHILDREN, then you would do the things Abraham did ... If God were your FATHER, you would love me" (John 8:39-44). What did Abraham do? "Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws" (Gen. 26:5). How do we love Christ? "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15). "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments" -- 1 John 5:3). ELIJAH thus turns the "disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord" (Luke 1:17). Elijah teaches us to obey the Bible.
• East, West, North and South -- "forward" (kedem), "backward" (acharon), "left" (smol) and "right" (yamin) (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) or "Hinder Sea" (Sea Behind one). 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; Isa. 11:14). Right hand (south) (Josh. 17:7; 2 Ki. 23:13; 1 Sam. 24:24). Left hand (north) (Gen. 14:15; Josh. 19:27). The Romans considered as unfortunate all omens relating to human affairs that occurred on the left side: For instance Virgil said, "If my mind had not been perverted" (literally had not been on the left side). It was the reverse of this when the heavens were to be consulted, as the right hand of the divinity was supposed to be to the left of the person looking upward, and making his appeal." (A New Dictionary of Quotations by John Farquhar Shaw, p.424)
• Eyes Opened -- Spiritual Discernment (Matthew 13:10-17, 1John 2:11) Adam named the snake Nachash meaning "diviner" or "foreteller" since Eve had been told that her "EYES SHALL BE OPENED and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Gen. 3:5). "And the EYES of them both WERE OPENED, and they knew that they were NAKED" (Gen. 3:7). Adam and Eve became ASHAMED of their NAKEDNESS -- an evil they didn't know before because it didn't exist before. The Lord "OPENED HER EYES, and she (Hagar) saw a well" (Gen. 21:19). "Then the LORD OPENED BALAAM'S EYES, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the roadway with a drawn sword in his hand" (Num. 22:31). Later, Balaam "whose EYES ARE OPEN" actually prophesied Israel's future (Num. 24:1). "Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please OPEN HIS EYES that he may see.” So the Lord OPENED THE EYES of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha"" (2 Ki. 6:17). "Then the eyes of those who see will not be blinded, And the ears of those who hear will listen" (Isaiah 32:3). "Then their EYES WERE OPENED and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight" (Luke 24:31). "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints" (Eph. 1:18). Whose eyes are opened? "The SECRET of the Lord is among them that fear Him" (Ps. 25:14) and "MYSTERIES are revealed to the meek" (Ecclus. 3:19). People don't realize that WISDOM comes from first OBEYING His COMMANDMENTS. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of WISDOM. A good understanding have all they that (first) DO HIS COMMANDMENTS" (Ps. 111:10). "I have more UNDERSTANDING than all my teachers ... I UNDERSTAND MORE than the ancients, because I KEEP THY PRECEPTS ... Through thy PRECEPTS I get UNDERSTANDING" (Ps. 119:99-104). "Because thou hast REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I will also reject thee ... seeing thou hast FORGOTTEN the LAW of thy God, I will also forget thy children" (Hos. 4:6). "The Holy Spirit which God hath given to them that (first) OBEY HIM" (Acts 5:32). "If ye continue in MY WORD, then are ye my disciples IN DEED; and (then) ye shall KNOW THE TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32; 2 Tim. 3:16). "If any man will DO HIS WILL (to the best of his knowledge at the time), HE SHALL KNOW of the the DOCTRINE, whether it be OF GOD" (John 7:17). 

• Fire -- Holy Spirit (Luke 3:16); God's jealousy (Ez. 36:5); God's wrath (Ez. 38:19). Scripture (Jer. 5:14; 23:29; Job 41:19)
• Faith -- Substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1). Noah never saw a drop of rain during the 120 years he constructed the ark
• Flood -- army (Isa. 8:7; 17:12; 59:19; Ps. 144:7); ungodly men (Ps. 18:4)
• Firstfruits -- first resurrection
• Furnace of Iron -- Egypt (1 Ki. 8:51); furnace of affliction -- Babylon (Isa. 48:10-22).
• Fowl -- nations (Ez. 31:6)
• Fruit -- Works / Actions (Galatians 5:22)
• Fig Tree -- Jewish nation (Luke 13:6-9; Hos. 9:10; Jer. 24:3-10; 29:16-17) -- May 14th 1948
• Forehead -- Mind (Deuteronomy 6:6-8, Romans 7:25, Ezekiel 3:8-9)
• Feet -- Your Walk / Direction (Genesis 19:2, Psalms 119:105)
• Famine -- Dearth of Truth (Amos 8:11)
• Field -- World (Matthew 13:38, John 4:35)
• For -- Should be translated "although" in Gen. 8:21, Gen. 48:14, Ex. 42:17 and Psalm 25:11.
• French -- Those who fight for liberty, equality and fraternity (good); Those who trade rights for privileges under contract -- who enfranchise and raise their hands and take an oath (bad). Demon-influenced people (bad) (Rev. 16:13).
Fear -- To "fear God" (Gen. 22:12) by obeying Him is good.  But to be "fearful" (Rev. 21:8) of man and therefore disobey God is bad.
• Freedom -- Bible followers cannot be kept slaves. They must become rulers. "The Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail: and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath" (Deut. 28:13). "Five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you" (Lev. 26:8). Abraham defeated a superior force of four kings (Gen. 14:15). The Egyptian master put all that he had into the hands of Joseph, a slave; and this slave after was raised to be ruler of all Egypt (Gen. 39:3-4). Why? "The Lord was with Joseph, and the Lord made all that he did to prosper" (Gen. 39:3-4). Gideon defeated the Midianites ( (Judges 7:2,19). Jonathan defeated the Philistines (1 Sam. 14:6). David, a fugitive fleeing from King Saul, was eventually made king. Why? David walked "in my ways" and did "what is right in my sight, to keep my statutes, and my commandments" (1 Ki. 11:38; 15:5). David's mighty men defeated their enemies (1 Chr. 11). Daniel, a captive, is made first president over 120 princes ruling a kingdom (Dan. 5:29; 6:1). The captive Mordecai is made next to king Ahasuerus over the greatest kingdom then in the world (Esther 10:3). The wicked Ahaz was forced to become a servant of the powerful king of Assyria (2 Ki. 16:7,18). His son Hezekiah threw off the yoke. How? Hezekiah "trusted in the Lord God of Israel: he clave to the Lord and departed not from following him. And the Lord was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth" (2 Ki. 18:5,,7). The preface to the ten commandments continually reminds the people of God that once they were slaves: and also who made them free. "I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage" (Ex. 20:2). As "kings" "we shall reign on the earth" (Rev. 5:9). Part of the mission of the Lord Jesus Christ was "to preach deliverance to the captives, to set at liberty them that are bruised" (Luke 4:18).
• Frogs -- Liberty, Equality and Fraternity are the frog's names and they give tyrants indigestion (good). Liberty, equality and fraternity are vomited out of the mouth of emperor, sultan and pope; French Fraggoi (Rev. 15 & 16); unclean spirits (bad) (Rev. 16:13); The frog SWELLS while it croaks. Therefore, its a familiar symbol of ARROGANT claims put forth with NOISY PERSISTENCY. EVIL PROPAGANDA is therefore the persistent croakings of FROGS all night long. "FALSE teachers ... speak great SWELLING words of vanity ... they promise ... liberty" (equality and fraternity) but they themselves "are the servants of CORRUPTION" (2 Pet. 2:1-19). Scriptures are rejected (bad).
• Filthy Language -- "But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth" (Col. 3:8). Yet the Bible mentions the words "bastards" (Heb. 12:8), "sons of belial" (SOB)(Judges 19:22), "dung" (shit) (Ps. 83:10), etcetera. Paul said to Barjesus: "O full of all guile and all villany, thou son of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?" (Acts 13:10; ERV)
• Face-Saving -- Perception is everything (Deut. 9:28; 1 Ki. 20:28: Pr. 26:5). God WITHDRAWS HIS HELP from those who claim they got rich and successful on their own. They will "surely perish" who forget that God helped them and "worship" "other gods" instead (Deut. 8:11-19). "My glory I won't give to another" (Isa. 42:8). "I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: LEST THOU SHOULD SAY, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them. Thou hast heard ... I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; LEST THOU SHOULDEST SAY, Behold, I knew them" (Isaiah 48:5-7). We should follow God's example (Matt. 4:19) and STOP HELPING any man who is ungrateful to us for our voluntary kindness to them. God precisely defines his actions so as to avoid such misunderstandings: "Not for thy righteousness ... dost thou go to possess their land, but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee" (Deut. 9:5). Also, "BECAUSE THE SYRIANS SAY that I am a god of the hills and not of the plains, I will deliver all this great multitude into thine hand" (1 Kings 20:28), which he might not have done otherwise. Not because "you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all people" (Deut. 7:7). God might have even destroyed wicked Israel, but "LEST THE LAND (of Egypt) from which thou brought us out SAY, Because the Lord was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them" (Deut. 9:28), he preserved Israel. "The people who are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, LEST ISRAEL VAUNT THEMSELVES AGAINST ME, SAYING, Mine own hand hath saved me" (Judges 7:2). God says, "If I were hungry, I would not tell youfor the world is mine along with everything in it." (Psalm 50:12). Elijah said, "Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the ... sacrifice, and on the wood" three times (1 Ki. 18:33-34). "Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice" (18:38) SO NOBODY WOULD BE ABLE TO SAY IT WAS A COINCIDENCE OR ACCIDENT. Abraham said, "I will not accept even a thread, or a strap of a sandal, or anything that belongs to you, LEST YOU SHOULD SAY 'I have made Abram rich.' Elisha said, "Were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee" (evil Jehoram, king of Israel) (2 Ki. 3:14). "Answer a fool according to his folly, LEST HE BE WISE IN HIS OWN CONCEIT" (Pr. 26:5). "How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? ... hear me, O Lord ... LEST MINE ENEMY SAY, I have prevailed against him" (Ps. 13:2-4). "But he, WILLING TO JUSTIFY HIMSELF, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbor?" (Luke 10:29).

• Goat -- Greece (Daniel 8:21); Islam
• Gopher Wood -- Cypress wood because the radical consonants in the Greek and Hebrew words are the same; for Cypress in Hiberno Celtic is Cufar; and because the cypress is eminently distinguished for its durability, and the power of resisting injuries incidental to other kinds of wood; while its resinous properties would tend to render it impervious to water. Most writers favor the idea that the ark was built in Babylonia or Chaldea, where history relates that there was so great a quantity of Cypress, in the groves, in the time of Alexander the Great, that that prince built a whole fleet out of it, for want of other timber. Even Chaldean tradition makes Xisuthrus set sail from that country.
Grass -- "All flesh is grass" (Isa. 40:6).
• Grace -- Unmerited favor; gift of God (Eph. 2:20)
• Grove -- Obelisk or steeple. Isis the wife of Osiris honored his phallic member by setting up images of it in temples for worship (Eusebius Preparation For Gospel, p.60) after Typhon (Shem) had cast it into a river.
• Generation -- "three score and ten" (Ps. 90:10; Matt. 24:34 from 1948-2018) (70 years); forty years (Nu. 32:13; Matt. 24:34 from 31-70 AD); 100 years (Gen. 15:13-16; Acts 7:6); 30 years Gemini to Gemini (360° months/12 months per year = 30° years).
• Gemini -- "two witnesses" (Rev. 11:3). The right eye of Pollux and the left eye of Castor together give the proper perspective. Each witness is blind in one eye. "Son of my sorrow; son of my right hand."
• Graven images -- Both Jacob's blessing and Moses' blessing illustrate that animal and human forms were present on the banners of Israel. A Man on Reuben's banner. A Lion borne by Judah. The Bull of Joseph. The Eagle or Snake of Dan. Balaam also evidently had the Lion of Judah before his eyes. It was therefore the worship of these "likenesses" that was forbidden, not the "likeness" itself. In the temple of Solomon were cherubic images made of lion's and oxen's bodies with eagle's wings and human heads. Israel had been punished for desiring the golden calf to go before them, but Solomon was unblamed for forming the twelve oxen that upheld the molten sea (1 Ki. 7; 2 Chr. 3:16; 4:5).
Gossip -- "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor" (Ex. 20:16). Even the truth can be gossip (Dan. 6:13) when revealing secrets to others who don't have a need to know about someone who isn't dangerous because he has repented (Ex. 23:1).  But warning others who have a need to know about a real danger is lawful when the sinner hasn't repented (1 Tim. 5:20). This isn't gossip. 
• Gold -- Pure Character Precious and Rare (Isaiah 13:12; Dan. 2:38); Immortality "I shall come forth as gold when tested" (Job 23:10; 1 Pet. 1:7); "The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of GOLD and silver" (Ps. 119:72) "It is difficult to distinguish true friendship from that which is counterfeit, unless something occur to try it as gold is tried in the fire." (Cicero Epist. fam. 9:15) Pliny the Elder mentioned that gold is the only metal not harmed by fire. "The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold; how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter" (Lam. 4:2).
• God -- "God is love" (1 John 4:8). "He is the Rock! His work is perfect, For all his ways are just; A God of faithfulness without iniquity (injustice), Just and upright is He." (AMP) Depending on varying circumstances and variable people, He can be merciful (1 Chr. 16:34; 2 Chr. 30:9; Lam. 3:22); unmerciful (1 Sam. 6:19; 1 Sam. 15:2-3; Jer. 13:14; Heb. 12:29); spares the righteous (Ez. 18:9,19; 33:19); slays the righteous with the wicked (Ez. 21:3-4); grants our prayers (Luke 11:10; James 1:5); won't listen to our prayers (Isa. 1:15; Micah 3:4; James 4:3); cannot lie (1 Sam. 15:29; Heb. 6:18); sends forth lying spirits (1 Ki. 22:19-23); is good to all (Ps. 145:9); hated Esau (Mal. 1:2-3); laughs at sinner's overthrow (Pr. 1:26); has no pleasure in it (Ez. 18:32); fearful to fall into his hands (Heb. 10:31); not fearful (2 Sam. 24:14); His anger slow and brief (Ps. 30:5; 103:8-9); fierce and lasting (Nu. 25:4; 32:13; Ps. 85:5); peaceful (Rom. 15:33; 1 Cor. 14:33); warlike (Ex. 15:3; Isa. 51:15); hardens men's hearts (Josh. 11:20; Isa. 63:17; John 12:40; Rom. 9:18); they harden their own hearts (Pr. 28:14; Heb. 3:8); punishes men for their own deeds (Deut. 24:16; Ez. 18:4,20; Rom. 2:5-6); punishes for others' deeds (Ex. 20:5; Josh. 7:24-26; Ez. 18:2); a respecter of persons (Ps. 138:6; Gen. 4:4-5); not a respecter of persons (2 Chr. 19:7 Deut. 10:17; Acts 10:34; Rom. 2:11; Eph. 6:9; 1 Pet. 1:17); tempts men (Gen. 22:1; 2 Sam. 24:1; Matt. 6:13); does not tempt them (James 1:13); the author of evil (Isa. 14:7; Jer. 18:11; Lam. 3:38; Ez. 20:25; Am. 3:36); not the author of evil (Deut. 32:4; Ps. 5:4; Jer. 29:11; 1Cor. 14:33); He is visible since Abraham ate and drank and conversed with Him calling him the "Judge of the whole earth" (Gen. 18:1-25) and Jacob wrestled with Him saying "I have seen God Face to Face" (Gen. 32:24-30); Moses, Aaron, Nadab and Abihu saw Him (Ex. 24:9-11); Moses saw his back (Ex. 33:23) etcetera. This can only be accounted for by what Isaiah called "the Angel of God's presence" (Isa. 63:9) and observing that Stephen says the law was given by the disposition of angels, and that it was an Angel who spoke to Moses in Sinai saying "I am Jehovah thy God". This Person later was known as Yeshua the Messiah, who was the God of the Old Testament (Col. 1:16; John 5:37; Eph. 3:9; James 4:7; Heb. 13:8; 1Cor. 10; John 1; Mal. 3:1; Heb. 1). But referring to God the Father, "There shall no man see my face and live" (Ex. 33:20). He is called the invisible God (1 Tim. 1:17), "whom no man hath seen or can see" (1 Tim. 6:15-16) and John says, "No man hath seen God at any time" (John 1:18; 6:46).

• Harlot -- Apostate Church/religion (Isaiah 1:21-27, Jeremiah 3:1-3; 6-9)
• Holy -- Set APART or SEPARATED from everything else to do a specific job. "Be ye holy (SEPARATE), for I am holy (SEPARATE)" (Lev. 19; 1 Pet. 1:16). For instance, "SEPARATE from sinners" (Heb 7:26). Saint, sanctify and sanctification mean separated, separate and separation.
• Heads -- Major powers/rulers/governments (Isa. 7:8-9); ancient and honorable rulers (Isa. 9:14-15); mountains (Revelation 17:3, 9-10)
• Hair -- Subjection (1 Cor. 11:10)
• Hill -- Small nation (Micah 4:1-3; Isa. 2:1-3)
• Hurrah -- The word "shout" in the KJV is from the Hebrew "Haru" which has become the English Hurrah
• Horse -- Strength & Power in Battle (Job 39:19, Ps 147:10, Pr 21:31); White --False Prophet; Black -- death; Red -- War; Pale (Green) -- Sickness (Matt.24; Rev.6)
• Horn -- King or kingdom (Daniel 7:24; 8:5, 21-22, Zechariah 1:18-19, Revelation 17:12). First Samuel 2:10 says,"The Lord shall ...give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed."
• Horn (Little) -- Papacy or Islam (Dan. 7)
• Honey -- happy life (Ezekiel 20:6, Deuteronomy 8:8-9)
• Hand -- Deeds / Works / Actions (Ecclesiastes 9:10, Isaiah 59:6)
• Healing -- Salvation (Luke 5:23-24)  
• Harvest -- End of World (Matthew 13:39)
• Horus -- Porphyry derives the name Horus from the division of time -- Hour.
• Hamas -- What justifies butchering innocent Jewish civilians including children, burning Jews alive, beheading Jewish babies, and taking Jewish women and girls captive to rape them? "The Day of Judgment will not come until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say, 'O Muslim, O servant of God, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.' (Sahih al-Bukhari 2925). Also "slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive" (sura 9:5). And "fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh" (9:73). A Medinan verse says, "strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh" (66:9). The genocidal Koran is HAMAS's Constitution. HAMAS even uses Palestinians as human shields (in hospitals & apartments) and blocks escape routes for Palestinian evacuees attempting to leave Gaza. Many Palestinians hate HAMAS. "Egypt will become a desolation and Edom a desert wasteland, because of the violence (Heb. HAMAS) against the children of Judah, because they shed innocent blood in their land" (Joel 4:19; TLV). Psalm 140:1 says "preserve me from the violent (Heb. "HAMAS") man." The Islamic terrorist organization today in Israel is called "HAMAS." Hamas is an acronym of the Arabic phrase "Harakah al-Muqawamah al-Islamiya", meaning "Islamic Resistance Movement". This acronym, HMS, was later glossed in the Hamas Covenant by the Arabic word "hamas" which itself means "zeal", "strength", or "bravery". Isaiah 60:18 says, "Violence (Heb. HAMAS) shall no more be heard in thy land".
• Hermes Trismegistus -- El Macinus, Abulfaragius, and other Arabic writers call Enoch Edris, or the glorious, saying he was skilled in astronomy and other sciences, and that he was Hermes Trismegistus. The Jews (as in the Targum of Jonathan) call him the great scribe, and say that he was the first who composed books of astronomy. So Eupolemus, who says he was the first inventor of astrology, and not the Egyptians. However some ancient writers think Seth was Hermes Trismegistus and the inventor of astronomy. Adam, Seth and Enoch seem to be the three great ones who originated astronomy.
• Homer -- (900 BC -- "no more than 400 years" before me -- Herodotus 2:54) Pope, his translator, says "Though he has some very low thoughts (the gods with base, human impure passions), yet he has more noble and excellent ones than any other writer: his style bears a greater resemblance to the sacred writers than any others, and his writings a remarkable parity with Scripture." A general spirit of piety pervades his works; we find in them much of divine truth, though perverted. There is a constant acknowledgement of the gods; and man's dependence upon them is shown by the continued offering of prayers and sacrifices; particularly before engaging in battle, or entering on any great enterprise. The principle which pervades the poem is, "Those who revere the gods, the gods will bless." Diodorus, accuses Homer of pilfering the sybil Daphne's poems.
• Herodotus -- He wrote his history when forty years old (Pliny 12:4) in the first year of the 84th Olympiad, 310 years after the foundation of Rome and 444 before Christ. Herodotus was told by the Egyptian priests, that after 3000 years the dead would rise again.
• Hesiod -- (900 BC -- "no more than 400 years" before me -- Herodotus 2:54) Hesiod professed to write under the inspiration of the Muses. His accounts of creation and of the early facts in the world's history are evidently founded on the Mosaic history. Passing by, and leaving out, God the Creator, Hesiod makes Chaos first ("without form and void"); and next the earth; and then by means of Love, Erebus (probably from Heb. erev -- evening) and Night appear; and day or light from darkness; then the heavenly bodies are born from the earth; and last of all, from Coelus and Terra, the heaven and the earth, Saturn, the first of the gods is born. Many facts in the early history of mankind are also plainly referred to by him. In his description of the different ages he speaks of masn's first estate of purity and happiness (Eden); then of a degenerate race "by angry Jove engulfed;" (Flood) and then of a third, a race of "many-languaged men" (Tower of Babel). Hesiod speaks of the share woman had in bringing evils on the human race, thus: at the instigation of Jupiter, Vulcan "Moulded from the yielding clay A bashful virgin's image ... a pernicious kind; A bane to men; ill helpmates of intolerable toils". This Pandora (Eve) opens a casket to release all the evils upon the human race. Yet hope remains within -- the promised seed of the woman -- the Messiah, Hope of the world. (Buy Elton's rhyming translation of Hesiod).
• Heroes -- Greek word HEROES derived from EROS (sexual love) according to Plato. The angels who SINNED (Job 4:18; 15:15) and had sex with the daughters of men, producing these HEROES, did not "preserve their dignity and having left their own habitation" will be "bound with eternal chains and reserved for the judgment of the great day" (Jude 6). Hebrew "Gibborim": Genesis 6:4 "mighty men" and "men of renown" and Genesis 10:9 "mighty hunter". Plato said the HEROES are demigods, for they are all born of the (sexual) LOVE of a god (angel) for a mortal woman, or (sexual) LOVE of a goddess (angel) for a mortal man (Plato's Cratylus 399). Herodotus remarked that the Egyptians were the only people among whom this belief did not exist (2:50). This corruption resulted in the Flood (6:5-7). "Why dost thou boast thyself of thy wickedness, powerful (gibbor) man?" (Ps. 52:3). The German "Herr" (high, dignified) may be a cognate. Also Aryan (Lord, noble).
• Hour of Temptation -- Called "hour" because 15° of a 360° zodiac day is 1/24 of the time (15 x 24 = 360). Seven years from 21 Jan 2017 till 4 Jan 2024 during which the United States (Virgo -- Virginia) in particular will drink from a venom-poisoned cup (COVUS [cobra venom] from seven-headed hydra snake) and have liberties taken away (purple-cord bound [quarantine & isolation] and gagged [masked]) and be jailed (Corvus is a jail bird behind red radius bars for disobeying mandates) and suffer death (vaccine side effects -- flag at half mast). Kosher slaughter of Americans because inspected by a Rabbi. About 600 million humans injured or killed by Covid vaccines so far globally as of May, 2023.
• Hyksos -- Hyc in Hebrew means king. Sos means shepherd in Hebrew. But Josephus adds that Hic or Hac, in Egyptian, means a captive. Manetho explains "Hyksos" as "Prince of the Shepherds." His authorities evidently called the invader Shiku-Shasu -- "Princes of the Beduin." (Ancient History of the Nearer East by Hall). That sounds alot like "FIRST of the NATIONS." “Amalek the FIRST of the NATIONS; but his latter end shall be that he perish forever.” (Numbers 24:20). “FIRST of the NATIONS” (Hyksos) refers to their position and ranking at that time, since they were not great in earlier times (their forbearer was Esau) like the Babylonians, Assyrians, and Egyptians. They were Arabians (Against Apion 1:52). Specifically Amalekites (pp. 64-65, Ages in Chaos). Their king Agag (Nu. 24:7) was known as Apop (Manetho). This is because the early Hebrew letters g (gimel) and p (pei) show a striking resemblance, both looking like the number 7 (Ages in Chaos, p.72).
• Hebrew -- One who CROSSES over: "Abraham the Hebrew" (Gen. 14:13) (into the Promised Land). It is due to the CROSS of Christ that we pass from worldly and unconverted to Bible-followers.
Hatred -- It is wrong to hate a brother (Lev. 19:17; 1 John 2:9)  "without a cause" (Matt. 5:22).  It is murder (1 John 3:15).  However, it is right to "hate evil" (Pr. 8:13) people.  "I hate them with perfect hatred" (Ps. 139:22).  Anybody who hinders righteousness including "father, mother, wife, children, brothers, sisters" and even your "own life" (Luke 14:26) should be "hated" in some sense.
• High Places of the Earth --  Isaiah 58:13-14 says, "If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure ("desire" or will -- #2656 of Strong's) on my holy day, and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Eternal, honorable, and shalt honor him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure (will), nor speaking thine own words (cp.Isa.55:8-9); Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Eternal; and I will cause thee to RIDE UPON THE HIGH PLACES OF THE EARTH (high places "in PRAISE, and in NAME, and in HONOR" -- Deut.26:19. Also, the high places OF DIVINE WORSHIP -- 1 Ki.3:2; and DEFENSE -- Isa.2:15; and GOVERNMENT -- Jer.51:24-25)
• Heritage of Jacob -- To "feed thee with the HERITAGE OF JACOB thy father" (Isa. 58:14) means the "LAND" -- Ex.6:8; ETERNAL LIFE -- Ps.61:4-8; God's "TESTIMONIES" -- Ps.119:111 and VICTORY -- Isa.54:17. "If you be Christ's (a Christian), then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Gal. 3:29). "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the EARTH" (Matt. 5:5). "The promise to Abraham or to his descendants" was "that he would be heir of the WORLD" (Rom. 4:13).The WORLD itself was the "HERITAGE OF JACOB," since in him and his seed "all the families of the EARTH were to be blessed" (Gen 28:14). To own the EARTH "forever" (Gen. 13:15) implies eternal life (Ps. 61:4-8) by obeying his testimonies (Ps. 119:111). “If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments” (Matt. 19:17). "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven" (Matt. 7:21).
• Heaven -- Government (Rev. 10:1) The SUN, MOON and STARS are political leaders. "His THRONE shall endure as the SUN before me, it shall be established ... as the MOON" (Ps. 89:36-37). 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).

• Incense -- prayers of saints (Rev. 5:8; Ps. 141:2); red radius stick of incense with lunar white smoke or solar brass holder. Perfume incense was offered on golden altar twice a day (Ex. 30:34-38; 25:6; 37:29)
• Ignorance of the law -- is an excuse since "to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin" (James 4:17) and "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains." (John 9:41) "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48). "If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:22).
• Inverse Square Law -- Intensity of SOUND is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source of sound to listener. Intensity of LIGHT is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from observer to source of light. GRAVITATIONAL force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the center of the planet to the center of the sun. MAGNETIC force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between two magnetic poles.
• Instruments (wicked men are) -- For thousands of years the seed of the serpent, though under a curse, built the great cities, furnished the kings of the earth, and had the power of the world; while the seed who was blessed, had to live by faith -- as heirs of an inheritance not yet received. Cain built a city and became its mayor. Nimrod built and ruled Babylon. Esau's descendants were dukes ruling cities, while Jacob's descendants were slaves in Egypt. God permitted the selling of Joseph into slavery by his brethren. Pharaoh is told by the Lord, "Even for this purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee" (Ex. 9:16). God sent "the rod of his anger" "against an hypocritical nation, to take the spoil and to tread them down like the mire of the streets" (Isa. 10:6). The Assyrian king was used to chastise the Jews (Isa. 10:7). The Devil claimed that "All the power of the kingdoms of the world is delivered unto me and to whomsoever I will I give it" (Luke 4:6). The deceitful Tiberius, with absolute power, was bringing the world into slavery, when our Lord said, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's" (Mark 12:17). The detestable, bloodthirsty Nero was emperor when Peter wrote, "Honor the king" and "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake; whether it be to the king as supreme" (1 Pet. 2:13,17), etcetera. Pilate boasted to our Lord, "Knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee?" (John 19:10). Our Lord responded, "Thou couldest have no power against me, except it were given thee from above" (John 19:11). Jesus also "being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain" (Acts 2:23). God says, "I have created the waster to destroy" (Isa. 54:16). Scripture says, "The powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever, therefore, resisteth the power resisteth the ordinance of God" (Rom. 13:1). To carry out his designs, God sometimes raises up and gives power, for a season, to wicked men; even to usurpers, wading through blood to a throne. In consequence of Solomon's idolatry, God sent a message to Jeroboam, which made him king od the ten tribes after their revolt (1 Ki. 11:9,31). He sent Elijah to "anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: and Jehu to be king over Israel" (1 Ki. 19:15) though they would obtain those kingdoms by killing the sovereigns then reigning over them.
• 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. Sharon Turner declared that the birthplace of the SAXON tribes is located in the very neighborhood where the Israelites were taken captive. He says, "They were a German or Teutonic, or Gothic race. Of the various (so-called Scythic) nations which have been recorded, the Sakai or Sacae are the people from whom the descent of the Saxons may be inferred, with the least violation of probability. They seized Bactriana, and the most fertile part of Armenia, which, from them, derived the name Sakasina. That some of the divisions of this people were really called Sakasuna is obvious from Pliny; for he says that the Sakai who settled in Armenia were named Sacassani, which is but Sacasuna; and the name which they gave to that of Armenia which they occupied is nearly the same sound as Saxonia. It is also important to remark, that Ptolemy mentions a Scythian people, sprung from the Sakai, by the name of Saxons." (KS = X; Amos 7:16) Where did the Anglo-Saxons come from, according to their own national traditions? "A careful perusal of the Eddas and Sagas will enable us, with the help of the ancient Greek and Latin writers, and without any serious break in the chain of events, to make out a fairly continuous history which throws considerable light on the progenitos of the English-speaking people, their migration northwards from their old homeon the shores of the Black Sea, their religion, and the settlement of Scandinavia, and other countries." (1:6). "The mythological literature of the north bears evidence of the belief prevalent among the people, that their ancestors migrated at a remote period from the shores of the Black Sea, through south-western Russia, to the shores of the Baltic." (1:25 Du Chaillu, The Viking Age).
• Idolatry -- Obedience is worship (Deut. 8:11). Whoever you obey is your god (Matt. 4:10). Therefore obedience to evil men is idolatry. Even if the order itself is harmless, the act of obeying the order establishes a precedent. What would normally be right to do becomes wrong since it is perceived as submission to evil men. DISOBEY because "Like a polluted fountain is a righteous man who GIVES WAY before the wicked" (Pr. 25:26). "For YOU TOLERATE IT, if a man orders you around, takes what is yours, puts on airs of superiority or slaps you on the face" (2 Cor. 11:20). Obedience to evil men is idol worship. DO NOT CONFORM even if the command is not in itself wrong. Perception is everything (Deut. 9:28; 1 Ki. 20:28: Pr. 26:5). Submission lends legitimacy to the arrogant and presumptuous tyrant. Don't buy the toy for your spoiled brat. Let him cry and pout instead. Buying a toy is not normally wrong, but God "opposes the proud" (James 4:6) and so should we. The presumptuous and arrogant demeanor of the one giving the command is itself enough cause to DISOBEY even an otherwise innocent command. DISOBEY self-appointed tyrants lest your obedience be misunderstood as GROVELLING SUBMISSION and therefore idol worship. Don't encourage and strengthen the hands of evildoers (Jer. 23:14).

• Jordan -- death (Romans 6:4, Deuteronomy 4:22)
• Jerusalem (above) -- mother of us all (Gal. 4:26)
• Jar-Vessel -- Person (Jer. 18:1-4, 2 Cor. 4:7); human body a house of clay (Job 4:19).
• Jericho -- Not only the corrupt Canaanite city that fell (Josh. 6), but the fall of the Roman Empire (Rev. 17) and the fall of the United States (Rev. 18) also
• Jacob's Trouble -- Jacob's Trouble (Jer. 30:7) will be a "week" of "seven years" (Gen. 29:27) for Israelites before the marriage to Christ.
• 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.
Judging -- Judging is commanded: "Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?" (1 Cor. 6:3)  and "he that is spiritual judgeth all things" (1 Cor. 2:15) and "judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24) versus judging is condemned: "Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matt. 7:1).  What is the synthesis?  We are not able to read another person's mind or determine their intent.  We can't judge thoughts.    But we can judge a tree by its fruit (Luke 6:43-45) -- words and actions. But the judge had better be righteous since "why beholdest thou the splinter that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the log that is in thine own eye?" (Matt. 7:3). The same criteria you use against others will be used against you.     

• Know -- Have regard and love for. "The Lord KNOWS the way of the righteous" (Ps. 1:6) but "there arose up a new king over Egypt who KNEW NOT Joseph" (Ex. 1:1).
• Koran -- "They said in boast 'We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary. But they killed him not, nor crucified him." (The Koran denies the crucifixion.) How do you know the Koran is not the Word of God? The Koran says the Bible is a previous revelation of God and the Koran says it is true and to believe it. Why don't Muslims believe the Bible then? Muslims will say, "Because its been corrupted." But what does your Koran say about whether the words of Allah can be corrupted? They'll say that the words of Allah cannot be corrupted. See, that's the problem. If the Koran is true, the Bible is true. And because the Bible is true, the Koran is false. "O ye people of the Book! (Jews and Christians) You have nothing to stand on unless you observe the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from the Lord" (Sura 5:68). The Koran is telling Jews and Christians they ought to obey the Old and New Testament. But these Scriptures contradict the Koran.
• 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)
• Kindness Toward Evil -- God "makes his sun to rise on EVIL and good and sends rain on just and UNJUST" (Matt. 5:45). Jesus washed the feet of the twelve and JUDAS was one of them. Our own parents were kind and generous to us as children. Did we do anything to deserve their kindness? "Do not say, 'I will repay evil'; Wait for the Lord, and He will save you" (Prov. 20:22). "Don't mistreat foreigners. You were foreigners in Egypt, and you know what it is like" (Ex. 23:9). We should love our neighbor as ourselves (Matt. 19:19) and who is our neighbor? Luke 10:37 defines a "NEIGHBOR" as "He that showed mercy" (or "kindness" -- RSV) toward you. Yet on the other side of the issue, we read such warnings as not to "strengthen the hands of EVILDOERS" (Jer. 23:14) and "ShouIdest thou HELP the UNGODLY, and LOVE them who HATE THE ETERNAL? Therefore, there is WRATH UPON THEE from before the Eternal" (2 Chr.19:2). "If a man comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into the house, neither bid him Godspeed; For he that biddeth him Godspeed is partaker of his evil deeds" or as another translation has it, you shall not say to him, “You are welcome.” "Whoever welcomes such a person SHARES in his EVIL deeds" (2 John 1:10-11). Only those who keep the commandments abide in his love (John 15:10; 14:21-23). God "HATEST all workers of iniquity" (Ps. 5:5). As Tobit said, "Scatter your bread on the graves of the UPRIGHT, but do not give to SINNERS" (4:17). Or as Jeshua said, "Give to the GODLY man, and do not help the SINNER; Do kindness to the HUMBLE-MINDED, and do not give to the UNGODLY ... so that he may not come to control you with it" (Ecclesiasticus 12:5). "It is not meet (right) to take the CHILDREN'S bread, and to cast it to the DOGS" (Matt. 15:26).  Where you draw the line with others is where it will be drawn for you (Matt. 7:1-2).
• Kingdom of God -- The Gospels teach TWO KINGDOMS of God. First notice the human, PHYSICAL Kingdom of ISRAEL: The human kingdom of Israel from Moses through Solomon till captivity foreshadowed the Kingdom of God (1 Sam. 12:12; 1 Chr. 28:5). The BRITISH EMPIRE later foreshadowed the Kingdom of God (Hosea 12:10). The "kingdom (physical) shall be taken from you, and given to a (physical) nation bringing forth the fruit thereof" (Matt.21:43). "Whosoever shall fall upon this (physical) stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it shall grind him to (physical) powder" (Matt. 21:44). This is the Israelite "stone cut out without hands" (Dan. 2:45). As truly as the four kingdoms (Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome) were material, human kingdoms, so surely is the FIFTH STONE Kingdom a real material kingdom ruled over by kings, and made up of men. Now notice the references to the SPIRITUAL Kingdom of HEAVEN: "But "my kingdom is not of this world (spiritual)" (John 18:36). "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (spiritual)" (John 3:3). "The kingdom of heaven (spiritual) is at hand" (Matt. 3:2)."Like a grain of mustard seed (spiritual)" (Matt. 13:31). "And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the (spiritual) kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom (physical) shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt. 8:11-12). "Flesh and blood cannot inherit the (spiritual) kingdom of God, nor can corruption inherit incorruption" (1 Cor. 15:50). "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators (date rape), nor idolaters (x-mass tree), nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves (non-tithers), nor covetous (pornography), nor drunkards (pot smokers also), nor revilers (preachers who ignore one side of an argument), nor extortioners ("trick or treat") will inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Cor. 6:9-10). 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). Not of this world now (John 18:36).  Only those saints who OBEY the Bible NOW will qualify to rule with Christ our Lord in the future (Dan. 7:18).

• Lamb -- Jesus / sacrifice (John 1:29, 36; 1 Corinthians 5:7)
• Lion -- Babylon (Jeremiah 50:43-44, Daniel 7:4,17,23)
• Lascivious -- licentious (Jude 4); sensually unbridled; libertine; lewd; lawless; immoral. For example, visiting temple prostitutes and having drunken orgies.
• Let -- Restraint (2 Th. 2:6); 476 AD when Roman Emperor Romulus Augustulus was "taken out of way" (to Constantinople) to make room for "Man of Sin" (Pope). Isaiah 43:13 "who shall let (hinder) it?"
• Leopard -- Greece (Daniel 7:6)
• Leprosy / Sickness -- Sin (Luke 5:23-24)
• Locusts -- kings and captains of armies (Nahum 3:15-17)
• Law of Moses -- First five books of the Bible (Luke 24:44; Acts 28:23)
• Love -- keep his commandments (1 John 5:3); walk after his commandments (2 John 6)
Lust -- There is nothing wrong with lusting after delicious food (Deut. 14:26) or a beautiful virgin if you both are unmarried.  "Whosoever looketh upon a wife (not woman. Greek word gune can be translated woman or wife) to lust after her hath already committed adultery (not fornication. You can't commit adultery with an unmarried woman) with her in his heart" (Matt. 5:28). "Sex appeal" was created by God.  But don't lust after another man's wife (Matt. 5:28; Job 31:1). Such coveting is idolatry (Eph. 5:5; Col. 3:5), so pornography is idolatry if the woman in the picture is married.
• Leaven -- Sugar (sweet, unleavened) turned to CO2 & alcohol (sour, puffed up) by fermentation (corruption). Doctrine of Pharisees & Sadducees (Matt. 16:12); hypocrisy (Luke 12:1); malice & wickedness (1 Cor. 5:8). A substance that causes dough to rise is leaven. For instance, sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) when heated by baking, decomposes to produce gas (CO2) which forms bubbles in the batter making it rise. Water (H2O) is another byproduct.
Lying -- Abraham lied about Sarah (Gen. 20:2)(good), jewish midwives lied (1 Cor. 10:11) (good), Rahab lied about spies (Josh. 2:1-16) (good), David deceived Ahimelech (1 Sam. 21:2) (good), etc. and these were "examples unto us" (1 Cor. 10:11) of protecting the innocent.  But those who lie to defraud (Col. 3:9; Rev. 22:15) (bad) will not inherit the kingdom.
• Lamp -- Word of God (Psalms 119:105). To "remove thy lampstand" (Rev. 2:5) or to have one's "lamp put out" (Job 18:6; 21:17; Pr. 24:20) or "walk in darkness" (Isa. 59:9) refers to Scripture being taken away so a person is unable to follow Jesus (John 8:12) while to "light my lamp" (Ps. 18:28) is to give Scripture to a person.
• Levites -- The whole number of Levites amounted to 22,300 (Num. 3:22,28,34: 7,500 + 8,600 + 6,200), which seems very small in proportion to the rest of the tribes, when we consider that Judah had 74,600 (Num. 1:27), and the rest each about 40,000, and none so few as 30,000. What happened to the Levites? Perhaps many of them were those idolaters who had been slain for worshipping the golden calf. Three thousand were slain in one day and many others died of the plague (Ex. 32:28,35). And what confirms this opinion, is that when Moses called out and asked, "Who is on Jehovah's side?", no persons are said to have come to him but of the tribe of Levi (32:26). And then he says to them, "slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor". Then later when Moses is blessing the tribe of Levi before his death, and praising their behavior, he says, "Who said unto his father, and to his mother, I have not seen him, neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his own children" (Deut. 33:9). The Levites had strife "at the waters of Meribah" (Deut. 33:8). It is fascinating to learn that the total number of Israelites was 603,550 (Num. 1:46) which is exactly the same number made at collecting the Poll-Tax for building the Tabernacle (Ex. 38:26). Yet the Levites were not now numbered. Therefore, just so many persons must have arrived at the age of twenty among all of the rest of the tribes, as the whole number of Levites that were then upwards of twenty amounted too. This confirms the scripture, "I have taken the Levites for all the first-born of the children of Israel" (Num. 8:18).
• Letters (radical & servile) -- Those who have not studied the Hebrew may be surprised why certain letters are considered as fixing the meaning of the word, and others as of no importance; in that language they are distinguished as radical and servile, a difference which may be traced in all languages. As in English, m, n, t (as th), and s, and all the vowels, are servile, or changeable, modifying, not changing the sense of the word. For instance in Hebrew Mishkan means God's tabernacle (M + shekinah) and Migdol means "Great tower" (M + gadol). Thus in English meat is what we eat, oxen is the plural of ox, they the plural of he, she the feminine of he. Notice that the sense is not changed whether we add or subtract the vowel from around to round and arise to rise. The verbs exemplify the changes of the vowels, as sat, set, sit, and sot, one who has sat too long to drink. So of all the Northern dialects. In Arabic, though grammars do not so call them, these letters are used as servile. The Greek affords similar instances; in Latin and all its derived languages, the same usage is obvious. Thus therefore in the name Sirius, the identity with Seir the Arabic, and Oseir or Osir in the ancient Egyptian, has never been questioned; the English and French Sire, the English Sir, are obvious derivatives from the primitive root of Sirius, which means to rule. Again, in the name Orion, the final n is according to the Arabic usage intensitive, giving force. The word does not perhaps at present exist in this particular form in Hebrew, but is regularly formed by the Hebrew usage, as he who cometh forth, as also by the Arabic, he who cometh. Both these names, however, we have through the Greeks.  

• Mountains -- kingdoms or governments (Isaiah 2:2-3, Jeremiah 17:3; 31:23; 51:24-25, Ezekiel 17:22-23, Micah 4:1; Daniel 2:35, 44-45)
• Morrow -- (Ex. 32:30) some time in the future, not always the day following. For instance, Genesis 30:33 where it is translated "in time to come". See also Ex. 13:14, Deut. 6:20,Josh. 4:6, 21, and 22:24.
• Mount Seir -- Mount Hor. "The Horites dwelt in Seir formerly, but the children of Esau succeeded them when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead" (Deut. 2:12). That son of Esau that conquered it was called, for distinction sake, Seir the Horite (Gen. 36:20). Notice near the beginning of the 40 years, the Israelites went up presumptuously and the Armorites "destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah" (Deut. 1:44). Then again at the end of the 40 years we read that they were stationed at Mt. Hor (Num. 20:22,27) or Hormah (21:1-3)-- the "way which the spies had gone formerly" (21:1)
• Melech -- King, whence Malek, Malka, Moloch. (e.g. Abi-melech)
• "Ministration of Death" -- Carrying out the death penalty, usually by stoning (2 Cor. 3:7)
• Milk -- "as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word" (1 Pet. 2:2).
• Music -- Notice "when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand; so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him" (1 Sam. 16:23). Notice "when the minstrel played ... the hand of the Lord came upon him" (2 Ki. 3:15) and he prophesied.
• Mulberry Tree -- "Canis Minor" (2 Sam. 5:23-24; 1 Chr. 14:14-15; Rev. 11:4)
Monkey -- A monk (minister) monkeying around with Scripture; he throws monkey wrenches into the works whenever someone tries to obey the Bible. He turns blue in the face trying to convince others to blindly obey him rather than the Bible. An archbishop is actually called a Primate. Policemen have a similar problem. Monkey business. Rules for me but not for thee. Turning a blind eye to perpetrator's crimes while sticking victim under microscope.
• Man of Sin -- The man of sin is not to be understood as an INDIVIDUAL who is yet to appear in the world, but of a SUCCESSION of individuals, since the Roman Empire was broken up into ten kingdoms in the fifth century, and it would leave fourteen centuries unaccounted for in the scheme of Scripture prophecy. Notice the frequent scriptural precedents for a SUCCESSION: for example, in Numbers 35:25-28, the line of High Priests is mentioned as "the High Priest." In 1 Samuel 8:11, the SUCCESSION of kings of Israel are called "the king." In Daniel 2:37-39, a SUCCESSION of several kings from Nebuchadnezzar to Belshazzar is spoken of in the SINGULAR number. In Isaiah 5:3-7, the whole nation of Israel is described under the term "the man of Judah," the Hebrew word rendered "men" in the Authorized Version being in the SINGULAR number. In Romans 1:17, all the faithful are included in the word of SINGULAR number, "the just" man. In 2 Timothy 3:17, St. Paul speaks of a SUCCESSION of Christian ministers under the term "the man of God." And in Titus 1:7, he speaks of the higher order of ministers under a singular noun as "a bishop." So St. John, in his second epistle, verse 7, describes "the Antichrist" as "MANY deceivers." All these passages serve to show that a SUCCESSION of individuals are described by a SINGULAR noun.
• Mercury (poisoning) -- Dental fillings cause mercury poisoning. Replace with inert ceramic or some other harmless substance.
• Mouth -- "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" (Matt. 12:34; cp. Pr. 15:28; Pr. 18:4); "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Pr. 23:7).
• 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.
• Messiah (Proof that Jesus is the) -- Jesus said, the Scriptures "testify of me" (John 5:39) and "all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms (Old Testament), concerning me" (Luke 24:44). What things? Where? "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself" (Luke 24:27) because "to him give all the prophets witness" (Acts 10:43). Old Testament scripture is a "shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the thing" (Heb. 10:1). 1. The serpent would bruise Messiah's heel (through crucifixion) (Gen. 3:15). To heal us, he was lifted up on a pole and became sin (a brazen serpent) for us (Num. 21:9). 2. He was the Passover Lamb (Ex. 12:6) who freed us from bondage to Egypt (sin), silent before his accusers (Isa. 53:7), selected "four days" (4000 years) before being killed (Ex. 12:3-6), "according to the scriptures" (1 Cor. 15:1-4) with no bones broken (Ex. 12:46; Ps. 34:20; John 19:36). They "pierced" his "hands and feet" (Ps. 22:16; Zech. 12:10). 3. He carried the wooden crossbeam to Mount Moriah (Mt. Vision from Heb. "Raa" meaning "to see" [Gen. 22:14]) like Isaac carried the firewood there (Gen. 22:6). Both were tied to it. "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day, he saw it and was glad" (John 8:56). By a miracle from God, Sarah gave birth to Isaac when she was "past age" (Heb.11:11) just as by a miracle Mary gave birth while still a virgin (Isa. 7:14). 4. Falsely accused and assumed to be guilty (like Job), he was hated (Isa. 53:3-4) and rejected by his brothers (Luke 19:14) and sold for thirty pieces of silver (Ex. 21:32; Zech. 11:12) just as Joseph was hated and rejected by his brothers and sold for twenty pieces of silver (Gen. 37:28) -- the price of a slave in both cases. All eventually will bow the knee to Christ as they did to Joseph (Gen. 41:43) who was separated, Nazir (Gen. 49:26; Deut. 33:16) from his brethren. 5. Samson was a Nazirite (Judges 13:3-5) just as Jesus was called a Nazarene "that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets" (Matt. 2:22-23). Both Samson and Jesus spoke in parables (Ps. 78:1-2; Matt. 13:34-35). Samson was arrested by a mob of his own people of Judah and ultimately voluntarily gave his life for them while in Philistine captivity (Judges 15:6-13). Likewise, Jesus was arrested by a mob of His own people of Judah (Mark 14:43-50) and died voluntarily for them while in Roman captivity. He was a suffering servant (Isa. 53). 6. Moses came out of Egypt just as Jesus did (Hos. 11:1) and picked twelve men to search out the Promised Land (Number 13) just as Yeshua, "a prophet like me" (Deut. 18:15), picked twelve men to search for Bible followers to enter the kingdom of heaven (Mark 3:13). Moses brought the letter of the law, which reveals sin (Deut.). Yeshua brought the spirit and intent of the law, which reveals sinful intent. He "will magnify the law, and make it honourable" (Isa. 42:21). Moses' face shone at his second coming down the mountain (Ex. 34:29) just as Christ's face will shine at his second coming down the mount (Rev. 1:16). "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me." (John 5:46). 7. Six steps led to Solomon's throne (2 Chr. 9:17-19) just as 6000 years lead to the Messiah's Millenium of wealth (1 Ki. 3:13), wisdom (4:29) and peace (1 Chr. 22:9). 8. Joshua (Yeshua) will cause Israel (Bible-followers) to inherit the Promised Land (Eternal Life) (Deuteronomy 1-4). The 42 encampments before Joshua's bloody conquest (Num. 33) parallel 42 generations from Abraham to Yeshua's bloody conquest (Matt. 1). 9. With a stone, David smote Goliath, a bronze and iron giant, after killing a lion and bear (1 Sam. 17). In the same way, Jesus is the Stone (1 Pet. 2:8) that smites the gold (lion), silver (bear), bronze and iron image of man (Daniel 2:34). Both David and Jesus were kings over all Israel for thirty-three years (2 Sam. 5:4-5; 1 Ki. 2:11). Herod died in 4 BC. which is when Jesus was born. Jesus began his ministry at about thirty years of age (Luke 3:23). So did David. Priests must be 30 years old (Num. 4:30-31). Three Passovers are recorded for Jesus ministry. Then he died in 31 AD making 33 1/2 year ministry. Both David (1 Sam. 16:1-4) and our Lord Jesus (Micah 5:2) were born in Bethlehem. Jesus was David's seed (2 Sam. 7:12; Jer. 23:5-6). 10. Elijah was forty days without food in desert (1 Ki. 19:8) and Jesus was forty days without food in the desert (Matt. 4:1-2). Elijah was "three years and six months” in the wilderness, and during that time there was no rain and a great famine was in the land (James. 5:17; 1 Kings 17:7; 18:2). After that, Elijah exposed the errors of Jezebel's priests and put an end to their sacrificing, the true God was honored, and copious rains followed (1 Kings 18: 41-45). Then Elijah "went up ... into heaven" (2 Kings 2:11).  In the same way, commencing in the middle of the seven years, Jesus will "put an end to sacrifice and offering" (Dan. 9:27) indicating a "three years and six months" ministry to a spiritually-starving earth (27-31 AD) fulfilling Daniel's 70-weeks prophecy. The pharisees were exposed. Yeshua was then "taken up ... into heaven" (1:11) and gave his Holy Spirit (former and latter rain). 11. When our Lord returns with "his face ... like the sun, and his clothes ... dazzling white" (Matt. 17:2) on Yom Kippur, the whole world will repent. Jonah typified this glorious second coming by having his skin bleached white inside the belly of a fish. Just as the Ninevites worshipped the fish god and so repented at the preaching of a man who came out of a fish after three days, so also the world now worships a living resurrected God and so will repent at the preaching of our Lord Yeshua who came out of the grave after three days, when he returns from heaven. Yes "he was buried, and ... rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). The beached fish vomited Jonah onto dry land, and then probably died, pointing forward to how the grave was destroyed by our Lord’s resurrection. "The (sea) weeds were wrapped about my head" (Jonah 2:5) just as Jesus had a crown of thorns on his head. On the first day in the city, Jonah told them that in 40 days God would destroy Nineveh (Jonah 3:4), just as Jesus told the Jews that in 40 years God would destroy Jerusalem (Matt. 16:4). 12. "About 2000 cubits" (Josh. 3:4) separated the ark from Israel just as about 2000 years separate the first coming of our Lord (26-27 AD) from the resurrection of Christians (2026 AD). "Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me" (Psalm 40:7).
• Matching Funds Principle -- In Exodus 17:11 Israel prevailed against Amalek when Moses RAISED HIS HANDS. But when he lowered them, Amalek prevailed. In 2 Kings 13 an arrow was defined as "the Lord's deliverance" (13:17) and the king of Israel was told to "smite upon the ground" with those arrows but HE ONLY SMOTE THREE TIMES so God only gave him three victories over Syria (13:19). In Numbers 14 the Israelites SPIED OUT CANAAN FOR 40 DAYS and concluded "We are not able to go up against the people" (13:31); "let us return into Egypt" (14:4) and thereby broke their "promise" (14:34), so God gave them 40 years of punishment (14:34). In 2 Kings 5:10, Elisha told Naaman to "WASH IN THE JORDAN SEVEN TIMES" (5:10) to be clean of his leprosy. When he did it, he was healed. In 1 Corinthians 11:29-30 Paul pointed out that CONSUMING "BREAD" and "WINE" at Passover symbolize our Lord's body and blood for healing and forgiveness of sin. Those who merely treat it as a regular meal are "weak and sickly" and many "sleep" (11:29-30). Therefore when we are commanded to "eat unleavened bread seven days" (Ex. 12:15) and "dwell in sukkahs seven days" (Lev. 23:42), let us realize there are important consequences to obeying or disobeying -- matching funds. Small acts of obedience to the Bible have large consequences.
• Menes -- Herodotus says, "the first man to rule Egypt was Min" (Her. 2:4, 99). Diodorus 1:45 says, "Menas was the first who reigned over the Egyptians ... the descendants of the above-mentioned king, fifty-two in all (ending in Ramses XII), reigned more than 1400 years." Misraim is identified with the first Egyptian pharaoh Menes (George Syncellus quoting Manetho's Book of Sothis). Eratosthenes, in Syncellus (p.127, Chronography) and Eusebius (Chron. Graec., p.17) affirm "Menes ... is also Mestraim" which is known to be the Greek manner of expressing the Hebrew name Mizraim by both Eusebius and Eupolemus. But how did they know?
1. Misor and Menes had the same man as father (The father is Ham [Amun; Hammon] who is called Cronus by Plutarch, Diodorus Siculus and Sanchoniatho)("Osiris ... his father (was) Amun" (Ham) -- Eusebius Prep. Evang. book 2). Mizraim's (or Misor's -- Isa. 19:6) father was also Ham (Gen. 10:6)
2. Misor and Menes had the same man as son (Misor's son is Thoth [Sanchoniathon] ; Menes' son is Athothes [Eratosthenes]. Athothes just has a Greek termination of es. Remember that Aram [1 Chr. 2:9] became Ram [Luke 3:33]; Eleazar became Greek Lazarus; and Shepherd King Apachnas [Josephus] became Pachnas [Africanus]) -- all dropping the initial vowel.
3. Misor and Menes both built the same city after the dispersion at the Tower of Babel about 2203 BC. Menes, the first king of Egypt, is said by Herodotus to have built Memphis (Her. 2:99) (a Greek corruption of Mene-phis; It was called Meneph by Arabians -- Bochart. But Arabians also call this city Mezer; and Turks call it Mitzir. So the city was named after both men.
Thus the last three kingly successions of Sanchoniathon: Cronus, Misor and Thoth answer to the first three in Eratosthenes: Jupiter Hammon (implied from the fact that the kings rule from Thebes -- No-Amun), Menes and Athothes. Sanchoniathon begins his history with Protogonus (Adam) and brings it down to Cronus (Ham), Misor (Mizraim) and Thoth (Cush, the second king of Egypt). Eratosthenes begins his catalog with Jupiter Hammon (Thebes or No-Hamun), Menes (Misor), and Athothes (Cush). In fact, Eratosthenes names a total of 38 kings of Thebes, Egypt, reigning for over 1055 years. This brings us down to the Siege of Troy and is a secular history that agrees with Bible history. If they reigned only in Thebais (southern Egypt), as the title of Theban Kings implies, this allows the Hyksos to rule in the north of Egypt (15th, 16th & 17th Dynasties overlap). Then the Theban kings take over even the north (18th Dynasty). The Hyksos never ruled over all of Egypt (Josephus Against Apion 1; Euseb. 10:13). (The first dynasty of the Thinites in Manetho also begins with Menes and Athothes.) Menes became a false god called Meon as in Baal-Meon (Nu. 32;38; 1 Chr. 5:8; Ez. 25:9), Beth-Meon (Jer. 48:23) and Beth-Baal-Meon (Josh. 13:17; 21:36).
• Mongrelization -- God's way is everything "AFTER ITS KIND" (Gen. 1:11). "God is not the author of confusion" (1 Cor. 14:33). Exodus 20:14 is a direct command against INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE. It says, "Thou shalt not commit ADULTERY." WHAT DOES "ADULTERATE" mean? "To corrupt, debase, or make IMPURE by an ADMIXTURE of baser materials; as, to adulterate liquors, or the coin of a country" (Webster's 1828 Dictionary). The Hebrew word for "ADULTERY" means "to commit ADULTERY" (Strong's #5003). If the seventh commandment merely means "extramarital sexual relations," then it is redundant since the tenth commandment also says, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife." Deuteronomy 22:10 says, "Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass TOGETHER." (a marriage of different types) Leviticus 19:19 says, "Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender (breed) with a DIVERSE KIND: thou shalt not sow thy field with TWO KINDS OF SEED." Deuteronomy 22:9 tells us we shouldn't MIX SEED, "lest the fruit ... be DEFILED." This is not written for the sake of plants and animals only, but "for our sakes" also (1 Cor. 9:10).
• Masturbation -- If a narcissist idolizes himself; and if someone who commits suicide is a self-murderer; then a masturbator is someone who commits homosexuality with himself.
• 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. "And there shall be (Zodiac) signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars" (Luke 21:25).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) "MILLSTONE" (18:21) RUDDER (James 3:3-6) or KIPPAH (1 Cor. 11:4-5). The DARK MOON in eclipse is a "SEAL" (7:2), "WOUND" (13:3), "BOTTOMLESS PIT" (20:1), "COAL" (Rom. 12:19-20; Pr. 25:22), "OPEN SEPULCHER" (Rom. 3:13) 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.
• Meddling -- "Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done THEE no harm" (Pr. 3:30). "Who are you to judge ANOTHER MAN'S SERVANT?" (Rom. 14:4). Proverbs 20:3 says, "It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife, but every fool will be MEDDLING" (KJV & RSV). "He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife NOT BELONGING TO HIM, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears" (Pr. 26:17). When Christ was asked to arbitrate a dispute, he said, "Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?" (Luke 12:14). When Peter enquired about the personal future of John, Christ said, "If I will that he tarry till I come, IS THAT YOUR BUSINESS? Follow thou me" (John 21:22; KJV & Phi.).The definition of MEDDLING is giving unwanted help and advice when you have no right. It is the opposite of MEDALLING -- earning a medal in an athletic contest. When other people MEDDLE in your life, you then have a right to MEDAL in their life.
• Millenium -- The word “millennium” is derived from two Latin words: mille, meaning “thousand” and annus, meaning “year.” Millennium therefore means “thousand years.” We read in 2 Peter 3:8 that "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." Also, "a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday" (Ps.90:4). Revelation 20:1-7 mentions a period of "a thousand years" during which Satan is chained and the saints live and rule with Christ. This thousand-year period is called a "rest" which Christians can "enter into" if they aren't "disobedient" (Heb.4:1,6,10,11; ASV, Gspd, Moffatt, Ber, Bas). Just as God physically created the earth in six literal days, making man in his physical image, and rested on the seventh day, so also he is creating his spiritual image of moral character in man for 6000 years before the Millenium when man will have a chance to rest. The Sabbath is "a shadow of things to come" (Col. 2:16-17). The penalty God threatened Adam with was that, "in the day thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" which caused Adam as well as all his descendants to die within 1000 years of their birth. A week is therefore 7000 years.
• Mark (of the beast) -- In Exodus 31:13 and 17 we read that the Sabbath "is a SIGN between me and you throughout your generations, that ye may know that I am the Eternal who doth SANCTIFY you....It is a SIGN between me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Eternal made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed." Regarding one of God's annual Sabbaths, we read: "it shall be for a SIGN unto thee upon thine HAND, and for a memorial between thine eyes (FOREHEAD), that the Eternal's law may be in thy mouth" (Ex.13:9). "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart ... And thou shalt bind them for a SIGN upon thine HAND, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes (FOREHEAD)" (Deut.6:6-8). "Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a SIGN upon your HAND, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes" (FOREHEAD) (Deut.11:18). (See also Pr.7:2-3; Rev.7:3-4 & 14:1) But most people will not accept God's Sabbath in their MINDS or refuse to work with their HANDS. Their THOUGHTS (agreeing with God's ways) and ACTIONS (obeying God) will not surrender to God or obey him. What we BELIEVE and who we OBEY determine whether we have God's SIGN or Satan's MARK. Revelation 13:16-18 says, "And he (the beast with two horns like a lamb) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK in their right HAND, or in their FOREHEADS: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the MARK, ("of the beast" with ten horns -- Rev.16:2) or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.... Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six." Since the MARK is "OF the beast" (Rev.16:2), we need to know who the beast is. Who is the beast? John said, "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. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion, and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat (throne), and great authority" (Rev.13:1-2). "Beasts" are defined as "nations" (Ez.31:6) or "kings" (Dan.7:17) or "kingdoms" (Dan.7:23). The "sea" or water symbolizes "peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues" (Rev.17:15). The "horns" are "kings" (Dan.7:24; Rev.17:12). The "heads" are "mountains" (Rev.17:9) or governments (Jer.51:24-25; Isa.2:2; Micah 4:1) and the "dragon" is "Satan" (Rev.12:9; 20:2). Daniel 7 reveals that four successive world empires are symbolized by a "lion" (Chaldean or Babylonian Empire, 625-539 B.C.), a"bear" (Medo-Persian Empire, 558-330 B.C.), a "leopard" with four heads (Alexander's Greco-Macedonian Empire, 336-146 B.C.), and a fourth "diverse" beast with "ten horns" (Dan.7:7) matching the description of the beast John saw. This would be the ROMAN EMPIRE (31 B.C.-476 A.D.) which swallowed up and absorbed all the others and embodied the strongest physical and military characteristics of all its predecessors. Therefore, the MARK of the BEAST is the MARK of the ROMAN EMPIRE. The "number of the beast" is also "the name of the beast" and "the number of a man" (Rev.13:17-18). The founder and first king of Rome was ROMULUS. The Roman Empire was named after him. In Hebrew, the name is ROMIITH (R=200, O=6, M=40, I=10, I=10, TH=400) and in Greek the name is LATEINOS (L=30, A=1, T=300, E=5, I=10, N=50, O=70, S=200). It signifies "Latin Man" or "the name of Latium," the city where both the Roman people and their language came from. Both names add up to 666. But what about the beast which had "two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him" (Rev.13:11-12)? Since a "Lamb" is defined as Christ (John 1:29; Rev.7:14), a "beast" with "two horns like a lamb" would be an ecclesiastical world government, exercising both spiritual and temporal authority (church and state -- the two horns), and appearing to be Christian, but teaching doctrines of Satan (the dragon). This PAPACY wielded all the power of the ROMAN EMPIRE from 538 A.D. to 1798 A.D. -- 1260 years (Rev.12:6,14). The "image of the beast" (13:15) was a likeness of the Roman Empire. As Myers Ancient History says, "there had begun to grow up within the Roman Empire an ecclesiastical state, which in its constitution and its administrative system was shaping itself upon the imperial model" (p.582). Since a "woman" symbolizes a "church" (2 Cor.11:2; Eph.5:25), the "great whore" of Revelation 17 is the same Roman Catholic Church as the lamb-like beast. This "woman ... is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth" (17:18) and she sits on "seven mountains" (17:9). The Roman poets Virgil and Horace both call Rome the "Seven-Hilled City" (see Georg.2:535; Aen.6:784; Carmen Saec.7). Remember that the saints "are they that KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS of God, and the faith of Jesus" (Rev.14:12). "And the dragon (Satan) was wroth with the woman (church), and went to make war with the remnant (last generation) of her seed, which KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" (Rev.12:17). But "the wrath of God (seven last plagues)" comes "upon the children of DISOBEDIENCE" (Eph.5:6; Col.3:5-6). The great day of the Eternal is near ... that day is a day of wrath ... and I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like blind men because they have SINNED against the Eternal" (Zeph.1:14-17). Yes, the cups of the wrath of God are poured out upon "the men who had the MARK of the BEAST" (Rev.16:1-2). Therefore, the MARK of the ROMAN EMPIRE must be COMMANDMENT-BREAKING just as much as the SIGN of GOD is KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS. Christians refuse to have the MARK of the ROMAN EMPIRE. But just as the SIGN of GOD was more specifically SABBATH-KEEPING, since that is one of the most obvious outward SIGNS of OBEDIENCE, so also SUNDAY came from the sun worship of the pagan Roman Empire. SUNDAY is the primary MARK of the BEAST (cp. Rev.14:9-11; 15:2; 19:20; 20:4)! It was Constantine, emperor of the Roman Empire, not a pope, who made Sunday the day of rest for "Christians." On the seventh of March in 321 A.D. an unusual edict was issued by Crispus and Constantine, often designated as the earliest Sunday law. It reads as follows: "on the venerable DAY OF THE SUN let the magistrates and people residing in cities REST, and let all workshops be CLOSED. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not suitable for grain sowing or forvine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost." (Codex Justinianus, lib.3, tit. 12, 3; translated in History of the Christian Church, by Schaff, vol.3, p.380) But it was enforced by the Roman Catholic Church. At the Council of Laodicea in 364 A.D., the Roman Catholic Church decreed that "Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, resting rather on Sunday. But, if any be found to be Judaizing, let them be declared anathema from Christ."  The Catholic Church caused them to be killed because when they were branded "anathema" (a heretic), the state police of the Roman Empire began torturing them until they either died or recanted. Laws became so strict that no man could buy or sell, hold a job, or engage in business unless he worked on Saturday and rested on Sunday. The same is true today in many areas. The Sabbath is the only commandment altered by the Roman Empire. In Daniel 7:25 we read that this "little horn" (cp.7:8) PAPACY "will think to change the times and the laws" -- the time for the Sabbath law. "Because they received not the love of the truth (SABBATH), that they might be saved ... for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie (SUNDAY); that they all might be judged who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (2 Th. 2:10-12).  

• Neighbor -- "Thou shalt love thy NEIGHBOR as thyself" (Lev. 19:18). But who is your "NEIGHBOR"? "The STRANGER who dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt" (Lev. 19:34). "Do unto OTHERS as you would have them do to you" (Matt. 7:12; Luke 6:31). Who are these "OTHERS"? A GOOD SAMARITAN (not a Levite or Priest) who is kind to you (Luke 10:25-37).
• Navigate -- To go from point A to point B on a map using a compass for direction, a watch for time and a speedometer for rate of speed where speed (mph) times time (hrs) equals distance travelled (in miles).
• Nakedness -- One's wife (Lev. 20:11,20,21); sinfulness (Rev. 3:18).
• Nile River -- Named after King Nilus (Diod. 1:2) who lived after the Trojan War and cut the country into a variety of canals. Before that the river was called Egyptus after King Egyptus of Upper Egypt (Her. 2; Homer's Odyss. 4 & 14) from which the country also got its name. In the time of Joshua the Hebrew name of the river Nile was Sihor (Joshua 13:3; 1 Chr. 13:5) -- from the muddy color of its waters at the time of its increase. See also Isaiah 23:2 and Jeremiah 2:18.
• Nabi -- Prophet, whence Nabo, Nebo, or Nebu. (e.g. Nabo-pol-assar; Nebu-chadn-ezzer; Nabon-assar).
• Nimrod -- From Hebrew "MERED" to REBEL (e.g. "murder"; "marauder"). Combine the prefix EN (meaning "king" in Babylonian) with the Semitic root "marah" (MR) in Hebrew which means BITTERNESS as well as DISOBEDIENCE. From this root is derived "marad" (MRD), or REBELLION, which is the origin of the Israelite slang term Nimrod ("rebellious king")(the Babylonian Nin-Mir-Rud), or (NMRD). They were insulting King Marduk/Merodach (EN MRDK). Also Ninus since he built Nineveh (Gen. 10:11) and Nineveh means "Habitation of Ninus" (Spanish Nino -- child) or Marduk or Merodach the Babylonian god, with an N prefixed. A similar change has been made in the name Assur or Assuruk, the god of the Assyrians. An N prefixes it to create Nisroch. The Roman god Mars is also Nimrod. "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. Kronus (Ham) used a sickle to castrate and depose Uranus (Noah), his father, with the help of Gaiea (Naamah) his mother. Plutarch says that the wife of Cronus (Ham) was called Nemaus.
• Name (My) -- Defined as "KEPT MY WORD and hast NOT DENIED MY NAME" (Rev. 3:8). Also "IN WORKS THEY DENY ME being abominable and reprobate" (Tit. 1:16). "You will be hated by all because of MY NAME" (Matt. 10:22) defined as keeping my commandments.
• New Song -- After David had been "brought ... up ... out of an horrible pit," he said that God "hath put a NEW SONG in my mouth" (Ps. 40:3). David also said, "I will sing a NEW SONG unto thee, O God ... who delivereth David, his servant, from the hurtful sword" (Ps. 144:9-10; cp. 33:3; 96:1; 98:1; 149:1). Therefore, a "NEW SONG" means "a new DELIVERANCE" from some kind of trouble. But in type the "NEW SONG" was the British NATIONAL ANTHEM -- "God Save The King" composed in 1652. By the Act of Settlement in 1689, it was once and for all determined that the British monarch must be a Protestant. That was something to SING about. At succeeding coronations, the monarch was required to take the Oath that he will defend the Protestant Faith and maintain the Act of Settlement. In 1910 the Declaration was "watered down."

• Oil -- Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:2-6, Revelation 4:5;1 Sam. 16:13; John 16:13; 1 John 2:27)
• Olive Trees -- witnesses (Rev. 11:3-4)
• Orpheus -- Before Hesiod's time, he taught that "In the beginning were chaos and a thick darkness; that light burst forth; that the sun, moon and stars came out of chaos; and that man was formed out of dust, and was endued with a rational soul by a supreme creative divinity. Thales, six centuries later, after learning wisdom in the East, taught nearly the same.
• Obedience (to human government) -- Did the same Peter who quoted Acts 5:29 "Obey God rather than men" suddenly change his mind in 1 Peter 2:13-16 when he said, "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake"?
• Oath -- Is a perjury oath a form of worship? Oaths are taken to superiors (Heb. 6:16). Make no covenant with them (Ex. 23:32). Christ said not to swear at all (Matt. 5:34). Abraham swore that he would treat King Abimelech justly (Gen. 21:30). An oath is a religious ceremony according to every dictionary and encyclopedia. You bind your soul with an oath (Num. 30:2,10; Lev. 5:4). You raise your hand to heaven (Gen. 14:22; Deut. 32:40; Dan. 12:7). William Tell refused to salute Judge Gessler. It is what grants jurisdiction (Latin juro = oath; Latin diction = spoken). In Roman times gladiators assumed a physical position while pledging allegiance. In medieval times a fealty oath granted absolute in personam jurisdiction to your lord. (contrary to the first commandment: "Thou shalt have no other gods [magistrates or judges are elohim Strong's H430] before me" -- Ex. 20:3). Voluntary perjury oath signatures on paper are still all that is necessary in a government court today. In Boyd v. United States, 116 US 616, at p. 632 "any compulsory discovery by extorting the party's oath ... is abhorrent to the instinct of an American." The right to remain silent is a right to avoid oaths. It is the foundation of the Fifth Amendment. The Levellers main tenant was that refusal to take an oath was an inalienable right beyond the reach of any jurisdiction. In 1966, in Miranda v. Arizona, 384 US 436, p. 459 footnote 27 acknowledged that the fifth Amendment evolved from a 13th century law commentary that "the principle that no man is to be declared guilty of his own admission is a divine decree." A pledge of allegiance is a voluntary test oath that requires the assuming of a physical position. In 1943 the Supreme Court in Board of Education v. Burnette prohibited mandatory pledge of allegiance. They ruled at 319 US 624 p. 644 that "a failure because of religious scruples, to assume a particular physical position and to repeat the words of a patriotic formula" is a legal right, because if the pledge were mandatory, it would be a prohibited test oath, prohibited by the Constitution. The Supreme Court said that "Such a statutory exaction is a form of test oath, and the test oath has always been abhorrent in the United States."
• Oracle -- All men feel the need to get advice from God. The Scriptures are called "living oracles" (Acts 7:38; Rom. 3:2; Deut. 18:19). But people reject these oracles. Therefore, Satan -- the father of lies -- has endeavored to supply this need. The ancient heathen oracles were his counterfeit. The responses were always in some enigmatic or ambiguous form so that whatever future event might unfold, the credibility of the oracle would be sustained. That of Jupiter Dodona in Epirus; of Apollo at Delphi in Phocas, near Mount Parnassus; and the temple of Jupiter Ammon in the deserts of Libya, were the principal ones. Homer mentions the two former only. In process of time they became so multiplied that there were not less than twenty-five oracles in the small provInce of Boetia. These were consulted not only on important public questions, but likewise on the affairs of private life. According to the heathen tradition, Mount Parnassus was once tenanted by a mighty serpent, which had the power of speech and delivered oracular responses from a sacred cave. This Delphic serpent, which was called Python, was, according to the tradition, slain by Apollo. From this fabulous monster the name Pythius was communicated to the god, and Pythia, or Pythoness, to the priestess, who, after receiving the vapor of inspiration through the cleft of a rock, delivered the responses. The oracular temples were generally located in deep forests or steep, craggy places. The tripod or chair, on which the priest or priestess was seated, was sometimes over the mouth of a cavern; the vapor issuing from it was said to have an inspiring or infuriating effect on those who were upon it. Just as Jacob said, "I will not let Thee go, except Thou bless me" (Gen. 32:26), so also Athenian messengers during the war with Xerxes said to Apollo at Delphi, "We will never depart from thy sanctuary without a favorable answer, but will remain here until we die." A young woman with the spirit of Python was able to identify true servants of God (Acts 16:6). The magicians of Egypt were able to turn their rods into snakes just like Moses did. But Porphyry said, "Since Jesus began to be worshipped, no man has received any public help or benefit from the gods."
• Olympus -- From Omphial meaning "the oracle of the god Ham" perverted in time to Omphalos by the Greeks and Umbilicus by the Latins. Thus Delphi, the grove of Jupiter Ammon, Enna, the island of Calypso, and many other places of similar nature all had the title Omphalos, or Umbilicus and were absurdly supposed by the poets to be the center of the earth, as the navel, they thought, was in the midst of the human body. Olympus is a variant of Omphalos, being composed of the same radical elements slightly transposed by the Greeks. This blissful mountain is a memorial of Eden where God talked to man.
• Oannes -- Satan spoke to Eve through the serpent (Heb. Ha Nahash) in the Garden of Eden promising her wisdom. The serpent became the common emblem among the oriental nations of superhuman wisdom. Later a fish-like man (Oannes) taught Babylonians. Berossus speaks of Oannes as a "daemon." Oannes is the Greek form of the name, and as there is no "h" in Greek, Ha Nahash would become anaas and with the article -- Oanaas. He taught them about "all kinds of (witch) crafts"? How to "establish (ziggurat) temples" and (Babylonian) "laws"? When a Philistine idol of Oannes (Dagon) fell down before the Ark, "only the fishy part" was unbroken (1 Sam. 5:4; YLT).
• Osiris (or Isiris) -- Osiris had Canaan for a brother and Ham for a father. Therefore Osiris was Misor (Mizraim) (Gen. 10:6). According to Sanchoniathon, Isiris was "the inventor of three letters, the BROTHER of that Chna (CANAAN), who was first called a Phoenician" (Euseb. Prep. Evangel. 1:10). Stephanus of Byzantium says "Chna is Phoenice or Canaan, and Chna are the Canaanites." Cush (located in Assyria & Arabia) and Phut (in Africa & India) were brothers of Canaan but not in Egypt. MIZRAIM (or Misor) was the BROTHER of CANAAN in Egypt. "M" in Hebrew is a servile letter often omitted; it means "from" in Hebrew; leave it out and the name is Isor; add to it a Greek termination "is" from Philo Byblius (the Greek translator), which Greek authors always do to Eastern names, and it is Isoris or Isiris or Osiris. "Osiris, having married Isis, many ways promoted the good of that (Egyptian) kingdom; but especially by building the chief city thereof (Memphis), called by the Greeks Diospolis [but the Jews called it Hammon No] and therein erecting the temple of his PARENTS, whom the Greeks called Zeus and Hea; but the Egyptians are known to call HIS FATHER Amun, as the Jews Hamon or HAM" (Eusebius Prep Evangel. book 2). (History of Sanchoniathon, p.99). Misraim built THEBES.
• Ouranos (Uranus) -- Noah. How do we know Ouranos was Noah? 1. The descent of Cronus (Ham) from Ouranos and Ge (Noah and his wife) is acknowledged in all heathen Theogonies (Hesiod, Apollodorus, Diodorus Siculus, and in Euemerus Messenius transcribed by Eusebius). 2. Uranus had another son besides Cronus, named Iapetos, the Greek equivalent to Noah's son Japheth (Yapet). 3. The Sibylline oracles speak of Cronus, Japetus and Titan as the three sons of Noah (Cory, p. 52). Also the principal Titans are said to be Saturn (Ham), Japetus and Typheus (Lempriere Classical Dictionary art. Titanes) which are Ham, Japheth and Shem (Gen. 5:32). 4. Hesiod's Theogony 154-166 says Cronus castrated and deposed Uranus. Uranus, like Noah, is a patriarch responsible for populating the world. Uranus's youngest son (Cronus) performed a shameless act against him, like Noah's youngest son, Ham did to him.

• Pale horse -- Roman disease and pestilence (Matt. 24:7); green (Greek chloros).
• Pegasus -- From "Pega" meaning "chief" in Hebrew (as "Pacha") + "sus" meaning "horse" in Hebrew.
• Pythagorean Theorem -- For any 90 degree triangle, length of side A squared + length of side B squared = length of hypotenuse squared. Pythagoreans knew God as Tetractys (Tetragrammaton). Pythagoras is affirmed by Josephus, Porphyry and others to have to have conversed with the Hebrews. Aristotle de Coelo says, "Those Italians who are called Pythagoreans affirm that Pyr is in the center, and that the earth being itself one of the stars circling or revolving about that centre produces night and day." Plutarch considered Pyr as synonymous with Helius, and mentions Pythagorean teachers as maintaining that the earth revolved round the sun.
• Purple -- Royalty (Mark 15:17, Judges 8:26)
• Pharaoh -- "king" in Egyptian; Phiraon in Arabic means "a crocodile." The Arabs call the Egyptians Phiraon koumi, "the people of the crocodile", rather as a name of contempt. Ezekiel 29:3 calls "Pharaoh ... the great crocodile".
• Paycheck -- A bribe to forget your dreams and morals. A leash to keep you as a slave of men. A string to control you as a puppet.
• Peace -- "Salama" or Islam (Dan. 8:25).
• Prevent -- Precede (1 Th. 4:15).
• Pleiades -- "Wasat", an Arabic name either of the Pleiades or of their brightest star, transmitted by Ulugh Beigh from early Arabian astronomy, means "the CENTER". So does the Greek name "Alcyone" (Ps. 104:4). So does the Latin name "Vergiliae" which means "CENTER of the revolving". One of the greatest achievements of modern astronomy was the discovery that the CENTER of our entire Galaxy of stars is the Pleiades. Yet apparently ancient astronomers knew this fact long ago.
• Precession of the Equinox -- The spring equinox passed from Taurus to Aries in 1865 BC. Giving Aries the standard 30 degrees, with a rate of one degree every 72 years (72 x 30 = 2160), we must add 2160 years for the spring equinox to pass from Aries to Pisces. Therefore in 295 AD the spring equinox passed from Aries to Pisces. Yeshua -- the Lamb of God's -- entire human life and ministry occurred when the equinox was in Aries.
• Punishment -- God will reward and punish men for their actions on judgment day (Matt. 25:46). But even before that, in our present lives, punishments are inflicted in consequence of actions which have an immediate benefit or pleasure but delayed suffering. For instance sickness and early death are the consequence of intemperance of alcohol, use of drugs or fornication. The delayed punishments are often much greater than the immediate pleasure. The ignorance of youth does not prevent the punishment. The success, happiness or misery of later years depend largely upon how the young pass their youth. We have seasons and opportunities for procuring advantages at certain times, which if neglected, can never be recalled. If the farmer lets his seed-time pass without sowing, the whole year is lost to him beyond recovery. Repentance is often too late to relieve poverty, sickness, infamy and death. The effects of their own causes overwhelm them beyond possibility of remedy or escape. "Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; but you have set at naught all my counsel, and would have none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity" (Pr. 1:24-29).
• Pillar -- prophet, apostle or wise patriarch (Gal. 2:9). "Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars" (Pr. 9:1). The seven "pillars" of wisdom are men (Gal. 2:9) from Creation in 3960 BC till 967 BC. "Seven men who can render a reason" (Pr. 26:16). They are Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and David.
Pirate -- "Illegal" radio stations from "pirate ships" (e.g. Radio Caroline; Radio London) allow gospel to be preached to Britain (Pirates of Penzance)
Pride -- Human "pride" is bad (James 4:6; Jer. 9:23) but godly "pride" is good (2 Cor. 7:4; Gal. 6:4)  Boasting about self is only appropriate when others wrongly belittle you.    Also when God works miracles through you, false modesty is blasphemy (Rom. 15:17).   But boasting can be quite dangerous also. Remember Nebuchadnezzar.
• Planets -- The visible PLANETS (moon, sun, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Mercury) form a seven-branched MENORAH held by Sagittarius (Rev. 1:12,20; 2:1; 3:1); a scroll with SEVEN SEALS (5:1); a SEVEN-HEADED DRAGON when they are near Hydra (12:3; 17:3,7); or seven "GOLDEN GIRDLES" on seven angels who are given SEVEN "CUPS" of freedom (the second Passover cup -- ten plagues) from Aquarius (15:6-8; 16; 21:9). Balak built SEVEN ALTARS for sacrifice to seven planets (Num. 23:1-25). They imagined the SEVEN DAYS of the week to be under the respective influences of the seven luminaries (Herod. 2:82; Dio Cassius Can. Chron. p. 448).
• Personification -- "Moses gave Gilead unto Machir, the son of Manasseh, and he dwelt therein" (Num. 32:40). Yet Machir was long dead. His descendants dwelt therein. The same personification of the Israelites is often found in Scripture described as Israel himself.
• Permission -- When God said, "I will harden Pharaoh's heart" (Ex. 7:3), it means God permitted Pharaoh to harden his own heart (v. 22). Or as Paul expressed it, that "God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering this vessel of his wrath fitted to destruction" (Rom. 9:22). It being a common method of expression among Hebrews to attribute an action to the person who permits it to be done. Thus Joseph is said to do whatever the prisoners did in the prison where he was the keeper in charge (Gen. 39:22). Nebuchadnezzar claimed to have built Babylon himself even though he employed thousands of men in the task (Dan. 4:30). "Thus we know Pharaoh "hardened his (own) heart" (Ex. 8:15,32; 9:34; 1 Sam. 6:6) and God allowed it. Again notice that Israelites "made the calf, which Aaron made" (Ex. 32:35) by his commanding them to do it. Also notice that "I (God) will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables" (Ex. 34:1) but Moses actually wrote those "words" by God's command (Ex. 34:27-28). What does this say about "permissive" parenting of disobedient children?
• Priapus -- How do we know Priapus (Peor) is the same person as Mizraim (Menes)? 1. The LXX makes Meon a deity. 2. Meon was so great a title of honor that it is given to God himself in Scripture (Psalm 90:1; 91:9) and translated "Dwellingplace." The Lord is our "Meon" (Dwellingplace) -- not Mizraim (Psalm 90:1; see also Psalm 91:9). 3. Egyptian cities named in honor of Baal-Meon (Num. 32:38; Josh. 13:9,17,21; 21:36; Jer. 48:23; Ez. 25:9; 1 Chr. 25:8), in the plain of Misor (See Josh. 13:9,17,21; 21:36; Jer. 48:21 in Septuagint), were associated with the idol Peor (See Targum of Jonathan regarding Num. 32:38) which was a derogatory name for Meon. David sang about those who were "joined (sexually) to Baal-Peor" (Ps. 106:28). Peor (Opener of vagina) is only used by Jews in Scripture and rabbinical books so it must be an insult. There is no evidence that heathen authors ever used this name for their god. Priapus comes very near to it. This implies that Meon or Menes (Mizraim) was Peor (Priapus). Hierom often tells us Peor is Priapus. Isaiah leaves out "Meon" -- the idol's name -- in Isaiah 15:2, just calling a town "Beth". The Israelites changed the name of the city Baal Meon when they rebuilt it, just like that of Nebo, because these were false gods. 4. Plutarch tells us that in Osiris's feast called Pamylitia, his shameless phalli are carried in procession. They are three times as big as normal. Herodotus in his Euterpe assures us the phallus was movable. Lucian calls it erect. We know that Osiris was Mizraim (Menes or Meon) from proof already given. Priapus was known for his phallus also. "Peor" simply means "Opener" (of the vagina). 5. Priapus is the same as Dionysus according to Suidas. The Greek Dionysus is the same person as the Egyptian Osiris as proven by Diodorus, Herodotus and especially Plutarch. Therefore Priapus is Osiris whom we already have proven to be Mizraim (Meon or Menes). 6. Baal Pe'or, honoured with lewd rites, was Priapus ; Pe and Phe are prepositives; Gwr and wr in Celtic signify man ; thus Pe'or is the man ; and Peor Apis, as Bryant observes is Priapus; that is the man Apis; the first Apis was that Meon or Menes who was Misor:

• Quiet -- Jacob was a quiet man (Heb. "tam" ) or tame -- civilized (Gen. 25:27) -- a simple honest man. The Septuagint renders it, "without guile".
• Quails -- Hebrew "salav" probably refers to locusts rather than quails. The "flesh" given to Israel in Numbers 11:18 were probably locusts, not quails, because 1. the wind brought them (11:31) 2. They covered about 40 miles in diameter and two cubits deep (11:31) and 3. were spread in the sun to dry, like locusts are (11:32). All three of these expressions agree better with locusts than quails. But in addition, 4. Wisdom of Solomon 16:2 describes them as "ugly" (Quails aren't ugly) and 5. Scorpio is alternately a locust marked with red radius line in Numbers 11.

• Red/Scarlet -- Sin/corruption (Isaiah 1:18, Nahum 2:3, Revelation 17:1-4) or sacrifice (Rev. 19)
• Red Radius Line (or blue, or yellow, or green, etc.) -- "My tongue is the (red radius) PEN of a skillful writer" (Ps. 45:1); "a ROD of iron" (Rev. 19:15); "harp" STRINGS (Rev. 15:2); MENORAH (Rev. 1-2); shoe LACES (Isa. 20:2); broken REED (Isa. 36:6); hand PLOW (Jer. 26:18); sorcery HAT (Jer. 27:9); BALANCES (Jer. 32:10); BELLOWS ((Ez. 22:20); kidney-bladder anatomy (Lev. 7:4); BLOOD (Lev. 8:23); MENSTRUAL CHART (Lev. 15); THRESHER (Lev. 26:5); "a RIBBAND of blue" (Nu. 15:38-40); divining ROD (Deut. 18:10); SHIN (Ex. 13:9,16); a "PATTERN" (Ex. 25:40); a "K" for KOSHER (Rev. 18); a FOUCAULT PENDULUM (Rev. 10); CROSS (Rev. 11); ROPES of a WINE-PRESS (Rev. 14); LABARUM (CHI- RHO) (Rev. 5-6); KAABA (Rev. 9); FORK TONGUE (Rev. 13); GUILLOTINE (Rev. 16); RUDDER of Argo ship (James 3:3-6)
• Reapers -- Angels (Matthew 13:39)
• Ram -- Medo Persia (Daniel 8:20)
• Ribs (three) -- Babylon, Egypt and Lydia (Dan. 7)
• Righteousness -- All thy commandments (Ps. 119:172); "the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (John 12:48).
• Ring -- Authority (Genesis 41:42-43, Esther 3:10-11)
• Rock -- Jesus / truth (1 Corinthians 10:4, Isaiah 8:13-14, Romans 9:33, Matthew 7:24)
• Red horse -- Roman war (Matt. 24:6)
• Rooster -- "before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice" (Mark 14:30). Lepus (rabbit) is alternately a rooster.
• Rod -- anger & correction (Isa. 10:5,24; Lam. 3:1; Pr. 10:13; 22:8,15); (measuring) rod -- canon of Scripture (Rev. 11)
• Race (Olympic) -- The Christian life (Heb. 12:1; 1 Cor. 9:24-26; 2 Tim. 4:7; Phil. 3:13-14) of the Saxon Race which is the White Race primarily at the present time. Notice "his people ... all his saints ... the children of Israel" (Ps. 148:14). "You only have I known of all the families of the earth" (Amos 3:2). "I called him (Abraham) alone" (Isa. 51:2).
Rebuke -- Show the ignorant sinner where he is wrong lest you be held accountable for his mistake (Lev. 19:17; Pr. 26:5; Ez. 33; Matt. 18:15-18). But why behold a speck in your neighbor's eye if you have a log in your own? (Matt. 7); Also "He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife not belonging to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears" (Pr. 26:17). "I cannot hold my piece" (Jer. 4:19).
• Resurrection -- A wicked person's name is “blotted out” (Ex. 32:33; Deut. 25:19; 29:20; Ps. 69:28) of the Book of Life. This implies a resurrection for the righteous. "Death is swallowed up in victory" (1 Cor. 15:55). "Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust ... the earth shall cast out the dead" (Isa. 25:8). "Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead" (Isa. 26:19). “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live." (Ez. 37:14). "Death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning" (of the resurrection) "God will redeem my soul from the grave" (Ps. 49:14) "Many that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake" (Dan. 12:2) "Thou will not leave my soul in hell" to "see corruption" (Ps. 16:10). "As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness" (Ps. 17:15). But I will wait "till my change come" (Job 14:14). "For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God" (Job 19:25-26). "As in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive" (1 Cor. 15:22) "And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt" (Dan. 12:2). God "kills and makes alive", "He brings down to sheol and bringeth up" (1 Sam. 2:6-10). Even in the apocryphal books we read about the resurrection: "God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of his own eternity" (Wisdom 2:23). "Of the twelve prophets ... let their bones flourish again out of their place" (Ecclus. 49:5).
Responsibility -- What is your responsibility? Knowledge of a situation times control of a situation equals responsibility for that situation (Ez.33:2-7). Rights are proportional to responsibilities. Liability must be limited to what a person would have stood to gain. A concubine who commits adultery can only be scourged "because she was not free" (Lev.19:20). As Christ said, "If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin; but now they have no cloak for their sin" (John 15:22). "Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin. But now ye say, we see. Therefore, your sin remaineth" (John 9:41). God ignores mistakes (Acts 17:30) but "unto whom much is given, of him shall be much required" (Luke 12:48). Those who deliberately disobey will be beaten with many stripes while those who accidentally disobey will be beaten with few (Luke 12:47-48). Why not remain perfectly ignorant then? Because if a man falls off a cliff and dies, he may have been ignorant of the cliff (not responsible) but he must still bear the penalty (death). "Not guilty by reason of insanity" doesn't mean "not penalized." God has given us various identifying "SIGNS" such as Sabbath-keeping (Ex. 31:17) and putting the Law on our hand and forehead (Deut. 6:8 & 11:18) to set us apart from idolaters and lawbreakers and identify us to the world as responsible covenant-keepers who therefore have rights. 
Revenge -- As 1 Peter 3:9 says, "Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should INHERIT A BLESSING" when dealing with LEGAL AUTHORITY. This is because we reap what we sow. But on the other side of the coin, "eye for eye" is biblical and "the rest will hear and fear" (Deut. 19:18-21) when you are the LAW. "Do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother" (Deut 19:19). "For you tolerate it, if a man orders you around, takes what is yours, puts on airs of superiority or slaps you on the face" (2 Cor. 11:20). Why tolerate evil? Why "strengthen the hands of evildoers" (Jer. 23:14)? "Shouldest thou help the ungodly and love them who hate the Eternal? Therefore there is wrath upon thee from before the Eternal" (2 Chr. 19:2)? "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed swiftly, the hearts of men are set in them to do evil" (Eccl. 8:11). (See 1 Pet. 2:21-23; 3:9; Eph. 4:31-32; Rom 12:17-21; 1 Th. 5:15;  Pr. 24:29). 
• Rights & Responsibilities -- Rights are proportional to responsibilities. They are two sides of the same coin. Those who won't fulfill their responsibilities, forfeit their rights. The right to life only exists for those who don't murder. The right to private property only exists for those who don't steal. The right to freedom only exists for those who are law-abiding respecting other's freedom. A Sabbath-breaker is legally dead, even though he is defacto alive. An idolater who gives presents to a tree on the winter solstice is legally dead even though he is defacto alive. A sacrilegious thief (non-tither) is legally dead even though he is defacto alive. Those on death row have no rights. Dead men have no rights to complain about anything-- even if they are still alive.
• Resonance -- An alternative to contagious virus theory (viruses don't cause disease): If you put DNA or RNA in water (beaker one); then put a collection of nucleic acids (the chemicals that make up the DNA and RNA) in a separate water beaker (beaker two), in another part of the room; then shine UV or infrared light on beaker one; in time the exact same sequence of DNA or RNA will form out of the raw materials in beaker two. No study has proven that any virus is contagious. Viruses are not alive.

• See -- Hear. "Behold your eyes see (hear)... that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you" (Gen. 45:12) in Hebrew. "All the people saw (heard) the thunderings and the noise of the trumpet" (Ex. 20:18).
• Seed -- Descendants / Jesus (Romans 9:8, Galatians 3:16)
• Sar -- a chief; whence Czar, Sire. Kai-sar is a Persian title meaning chief (Sar) king (Kai). (e.g. Kai-sar)
• Salt -- Preservative from corruption and decay (righteous thoughts, words and actions) (Matt. 5:13). Ten righteous men would have saved Sodom (Gen. 18:32). In the same way, the worldwide church saves the world; and the world will be burned up when Christians are removed from it by a resurrection.
• Stink -- Not a literal smell; but instead anything offensive; "ye have caused our fragrance to STINK in the nose of Pharaoh, and in the nose of his servants -- to give a sword into their hand to slay us." (Ex. 5:21) "Saul had defeated the garrison of the Philistines, and also that Israel had become a STENCH to the Philistines" (1 Sam. 13:4; ESV). "Afterward Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have ruined me! You’ve made me STINK among all the people of this land—among all the Canaanites and Perizzites. We are so few that they will join forces and crush us. I will be ruined, and my entire household will be wiped out!” (Gen. 34:30; NLT). "I hate I despise your festival days, and your solemn convocations STINK." (Amos 5:21; ISV)
• Sin -- Transgression of the law (1 John 3:4); whatsoever is not of faith (Rom. 14:23).
• Sothic Cycle -- A cycle of 1460 years in the calendar of ancient Egypt. The Egyptian calendar had a year of fixed length, 365 days, with no leap years. This phenomenon was the Egyptian Sothic Cycle, based on the star Sirius (called Sothis by the ancient Egyptians). The error with respect to the 365-day year and the heliacal risings of Sirius amounted to one day every four tropical years, or one whole Egyptian calendar year every 1,460 tropical years. The dates for the start of each Sothic cycle are fortunately known because the Roman historian Censorinus fixed the coincidence of New Year’s Day and heliacal rising of Sothis in AD 139. Taking into account a slight difference between a Sothic year and a year of the fixed stars, the years 1322, 2782, and 4242 BC are taken as starting points of a Sothic cycle.The Sothic cycle or Canicular period is a period of 1,461 Egyptian civil years of 365 days each or 1,460 Julian years averaging 365¼ days each.
• Stone -- Christ's kingdom; Britain (Dan. 2); Jacob's Bethel Stone of Scone (Gen. 49:24). When this statue of Daniel 2 is placed flat across Europe with each part of the human anatomy placed over its corresponding GEOGRAPHICAL area, the FIFTH stone kingdom's identity becomes obvious. It is "cut out without hands" (Daniel 2:34) from the continent by means of Noah's Flood creating the English Channel. Notice the comparatively shallow depth of the English Channel. It is 20 fathoms or 120 feet deep -- a fathom being six feet. God created a defensive moat around the British Isles to protect them from the idolatry of Roman Catholic Europe. Britain was cut out of Europe politically and religiously at about the time of the Protestant Reformation. Notice that the STONE has to be ABOVE the feet in order to FALL on them. As Jesus said, "the kingdom of God shall be taken from you (Jews of Palestine who reject me as Messiah), and given to a nation (the "Lost Ten Tribes of Israel" in Britain) bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall upon this STONE shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall FALL, it will grind him to powder" (Matt. 21:43-44). Daniel 2:44 says, "And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people (or be conquered by another nation), but it shall BREAK in PIECES, and CONSUME all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever." ABRAHAM is the heir of the WORLD (Rom. 4:13). "And the STONE that smote the image became a great mountain (Great Britain) and filled the EARTH" (Dan. 2:35). Therefore, the world-ruling STONE empire has to be ABRAHAM'S descendants. "Thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles" (Isa. 54:3). The British Empire with its Coronation STONE (as well as the United States) became that STONE Kingdom, the FIFTH world empire after Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Pagan Rome, and Papal Rome (Gen. 49:24). After the "seven times of the Gentiles." In 1936 the British Empire was eight times the area of the previous Roman Empire which had been the largest of the four Gentile empires. The Union Jack flew over one quarter of the land surface of the earth and governed one quarter of the world's population -- it filled the whole earth -- the sun never set on the British Empire. The Roman Empire could have been put comfortably inside Australia. Babylon was 605,000 square miles. Medo-Persia was 1,360,000 square miles. Greece was 1,757,000 square miles. Rome was 2,375,000 square miles and the British Empire was 16,769,000 square miles. If the British Empire is not the STONE Kingdom, then why didn't Daniel see this largest-of-all empires as part of the statue? Does it make sense that the British Empire would not be mentioned in the Bible when all the other lesser empires of the world have been mentioned?  Israel was to grow up to become the FIFTH or STONE Kingdom in ignorance of her origin and destiny (Dan. 2:44; Rom. 11:25; Gen. 49:24). When Philip II learned of the result of the expedition, he declared, "I sent the Armada against men, not God's winds and waves". Karl Marx wrote, "England seems to be the ROCK against which all revolutionary waves are broken." Napoleon said, "If it were not for England I would conquer the world." Fascist Benito Mussolini complained in 1938 that "Italy has no FREE ACCESS to the oceans; she is actually a PRISONER ... The bars of that PRISON are Corsica (Fr.), Tunisia (Fr.), Malta (Br.) and Cyprus (Br.), and its guards are Gibraltar (Br.) and Cyprus (Br.)" William Shakespeare described England as "This fortress built by Nature for her self Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious STONE set in a silver sea Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands, This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England" (Richard II, Act 1, vv.4-11). Certainly Bible prophecy wouldn't ignore the BRITISH EMPIRE which -- with the UNITED STATES -- ruled one third of humanity, when prophecy mentions SMALLER empires such as Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. Since the British are not any of these four empires, but came AFTER all of them, they must be the FIFTH STONE kingdom that rules the world. GEOGRAPHICALLY the British Isles fulfill the prophecies of the stone cut out of Europe -- "the stone of Israel" (Gen. 49:24).
• Stone heart -- unconverted (Ez. 11:19; 36:26; 2 Cor. 3:3); smitten (converted)
• Silver -- Pure Words & Understanding (Proverbs 2:4; 3:13-14; 10:20; 25:11, Psalms 12:6)
• Serpent -- Satan (Revelation 12:9; 20:2)."They call those gods which, if they had life and breath, and a man should meet them unexpectedly, would pass for monsters." -- Roman historian Varro
• "Spoke Unadvisedly" -- (Psalm 106:33) "Hear now ye rebels! Must WE fetch you water out of this rock?" (Num. 20:10) No credit to God for the miracle. Thus Moses had to smite the rock twice (Num. 20:11) since the water didn't issue at the first stroke that he might be made sensible of his error and give God glory. "Ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel" (Deut. 32:51).
• Shinar -- The Tower of Babel is said to have been built in “a plain in the land of Shinar” (Gen 11:2) also known as Sumer. The whole of Babylonia is designated Sumer and Accad, and among their other titles the Babylonian and Assyrian monarchs always are called "king of Sumer and Accad". Sumer comes from Heb. Shingar. But ng is frequently changed in Accadian into m. Thus their word Dingir (God) becomes Dimmer, and Dingira (a surname of the goddess Istar) becomes Dimir. In this way Singar or Sungar became Sumer or Shumer in which form it is met constantly on the monuments. Sennaar of Babylon is mentioned by Hestiaeus the Milesian (Ant. 1:5 & Eusebius de pr. ev. 9:15) and the city of Singara in Mesopotamia is mentioned by several (Ptolemy table 4; Pliny Nat. Hist.; Amm. Marc.). As for the difference between the words Shinaar and Singar, it is very small, considering in the Hebrew, the same character stands for the Ain and the Ghain. For instance either Gomorrah or Amorrah is correct. Either Gazah or Azzah (Gen. 10:19).
• Sackcloth -- Sackcloth is black (Isa. 50:3; Rev. 6:12) and is associated with mourning (Ps. 30:11). Two witnesses wear sackcloth (Rev. 11:3).
• Stick -- Scepter (Ez. 37:16-17) From 917 BCE to 1603 CE = 2520 English [Joseph’s] and Scottish [Judah’s] crowns and thrones were as separate as two sticks.
• Star (fallen) -- fallen angel (not Gabriel but Lucifer)(Rev. 9:1)
• Sword -- Word of God (Eph. 6:17, Heb. 4:12). "His maker gives him his sword" (Job 40:19). Two-edged sword (Rev. 1:16; 2:12,16; Heb. 4:12). Both Old & New Testaments proceed out of Christ's mouth. Two witnesses.
• Speak -- Meditate -- "Speak to (Meditate about) the earth" (Job 12:8); Judges 5:10; Ps. 69:12 and Ps.145:5 use the same word (7878) translated "speak".
• Scythian -- Herodotus says, "SACAE is the name the Persians give to all SCYTHIAN tribes" (7:64) because "in ISAAC shall thy seed be called" (Gen. 21:12).
• Seal -- Holy Spirit in our hearts (Eph. 1:13; 2 Cor. 1:22; Rev 7:2-3) "The Lord knows them that are his" (2 Tim. 2:19) "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption" (Eph 4:30).
• Six Hundred Sixty Six -- The word for “bad”, "wicked" or "evil" in Hebrew is ra. This word (Hebrew #7451) occurs 666 times in the Hebrew Bible. King Solomon received “666 talents of gold per year” (1 Kings 10:14, 2 Chronicles 9:13; New English Translation),which was a "heavy yoke" of taxation (1 Ki. 12:4), alongside his many wives (700 plus 300 concubines which “turned away his heart after other gods” -- 1 Kings 11:4), both of which are warned against in Deuteronomy 17:17 "that his heart turn not away". Solomon said, "I gathered me also silver and gold, and treasure such as kings and the provinces have as their own; I got me ... women very many … whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them; I withheld not my heart from any joy …. Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do; and, behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was no profit under the sun. … This also is vanity and a great evil” (Ecclesiastes 2:3-21). In the New Testament the letters of the Greek word "euphoria," from which the word "wealth" is translated, total 666. Another New Testament word which has the value of 666 in Greek is "paradosis" meaning "tradition" (Acts 19:25; Matt. 15:2). Paradosis: P=80, a=1, r=100, a=1, d=4, o=70, s=200, i=10, s=200. Wealth and tradition are the two great corrupters of people and institutions. Catholic traditions have "equal authority" with Scripture.
• Satan -- Satan is the Prince of the power of the air; hence comes his name Diabolus, Devil, from Hiberno Celtic Dia, God and Abheil or Avel, Air. A serpent in Irish is Aithid; which also signifies a fiery person; hence Hate, the Greek Ate; and probably Hades. Of Ate Homer relates, "Jove whirled her headlong down, forever driven, From bright Olympus and the starry heaven; Thence on the nether world the fury fell, Ordained with man's contentious race to dwell."
• Swamp -- The great whore "sitteth upon MANY WATERS" (Rev. 17:1) and Babylon "dwelleth upon MANY WATERS" (Jer. 51:13). Recall that the Euphrates (Tiber; Hudson) ran through Babylon (Rome; NY) and sometimes OVERFLOWED its banks. Meccah's Kaaba was located in a valley and rains created a FLOOD problem. Sholtz, Watson, Abrahams, Murchison, and Paddock (excluding Bowman) spell SWAMP.
Shiloh -- "Go wash in the pool of Siloam, which is by interpretation, SENT" (John 9:7) The Vulgate Latin translation renders Shiloh (Gen. 49:10) as "He who is or shall be SENT". "As the Father hath SENT me, so SEND I you" (John 20:20). Hence, Paul calls "Jesus Christ the Apostle, ie "the One SENT" (Heb. 13:1).
• Sukkot -- "We that are in this TABERNACLE (Greek "skenoma") do groan, being burdened ... that MORTALITY might be swallowed up in life" (2 Cor. 5:4). "Know ye not that your BODY is the temple of the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor. 6:19) for about "threescore and ten" years (Ps. 90:10). "God hath said, I will DWELL IN THEM and walk in them" (2 Cor. 6:16).
• Saints -- "his people ... all his saints ... the children of Israel" (Ps. 148:14). "You only have I known of all the families of the earth" (Amos 3:2). "I called him (Abraham) alone" (Isa. 51:2). "Ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and of the household of God" (Eph. 2:19). Saint, sanctify and sanctification mean separated, separate and separation.
• "Some" -- Many or all. Notice that "in the latter times (Christian dispensation -- 1 Pet. 1:20; Gen. 49:1,10) SOME shall depart from the faith" which means MANY -- the Roman Catholic Church. For instance, "If SOME of the branches be broken off.... God hath concluded them ALL in unbelief" (Rom. 11:17, 32); and when Paul mentions "SOME of the Israelites as idolaters", Moses specifies the same as "ALL the people" (1 Cor. 10:7; Ex. 32:3, 6). Also, when Paul spoke of "SOME" murmurers, Moses described them as "ALL the children of Israel" (1 Cor. 10:17; Nu. 14:2).
• 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.
• San Hedrin -- There were twelve captains of the twelve tribes named (Numbers 2:3-25 & 10:14-28). Also there were 58 heads of families next in rank to the twelve (Num. 26:5-50): Reuben 4, Simeon 5, Gad 7, Judah 5, Issachar 4, Zebulon 3, Manasseh 8, Ephraim 4, Benjamin 8, Dan 1, Asher 5, and Naphtali 4 called "princes of the congregation" . Adding 58 + 12 = 70 "princes of the congregation". When the tribes of Reuben and Gad desired their portion on the other side of Jordan, the princes of the congregation were consulted (Nu. 32:2). When the Israelites made peace with the Gibeonites, the princes of the congregation sware to them (Josh. 9:15). In a dispute about the right of inheritance, the daughters of Zelophehad came before these princes of the congregation (Josh. 17:4). See also Num. 27:2,31, 26 & 36:1. (see Congregation)
• Shadows -- Priests who offer GIFTS "serve unto the example and SHADOW of heavenly things" (Heb. 8:5); "For the law having a SHADOW of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those SACRIFICES which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect" (Heb. 10:1).
• Sabbath -- Rest from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. A type of the Millenium after 6000 years: "a thousand years is as a day" (2 Pet. 3:8; Ps. 90:4; Heb. 4:9; Col. 2:16-17; Rev. 20:1-6) Adam died the 1st day after living 930 years since "in the day thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die" (Gen. 2:17).
• 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".
• Samson -- (Hercules) The twelve labors of Hercules correspond to the twelve signs of the zodiac. Yeshua is therefore Hercules (Samson).
• Saturn -- How do we know Saturn was Cush and Nimrod? 1.) "Saturn was the first sovereign of Babylon" (Hislop quoting Eusebius pp.31-32 Two Babylons). Both Cush (Belus) and Nimrod (Ninus) were the first two kings of Babylon (Scaliger). 2.) Saturn ate his own children (p.231 Hislop; Hesiod Theogonia line 485). A "Cahna Baal" means a priest of Baal (Lev. 18:21; Jer. 19:5; 32:35). Both Cush and Nimrod were cannibals. 3.) Saturn's birthday was December 25th -- called the Saturnalia. His wife Semiramis claimed an evergreen tree grew out of a dead stump (Ez. 6:13); and that Horus her son was Nimrod reincarnated. They were worshipped as "Madonna and child" with presents under the tree on the anniversary of his birth. Fortuna and Jupiter in Rome. Aphrodite and Adonis in Greece. Astarte (Easter) and Baal in Canaan. Both Cush and Nimrod were husbands of Semiramis (Dio. Sic. 2:6). 4.) Saturn hid in Rome which was named Saturnia after his death. Latium actually received its name because Saturn (lit. "conceal") was supposed to be hidden there (latere -- "to lie hidden"; Ovid Fasti 7:238; 3:29; Aeneid 8:319). Cush first wore the papal Dagon miter; and the Apennine Mts. of Italy were anciently called the mountains of Nembrod. (Nimrod). 5.) Saturn (Cronus -- "horned one") was known in Chaldee as "Satur" (a goat-legged deity -- Pan or Faun or Satyr translated "demon" in Lev. 17:7). S=60 + T=400 + U=6 + R=200 = 666. Thus a black goat-man with hooves and horns became an image of Satan (Lev. 16:10). In fact, Satan and Saturn are the same word, one early Latin and the other late Latin. Both Cush and Nimrod were evil. Nimrod was "a mighty hunter against the Eternal" (Gen. 10:9) while Cush caused "chaos" at the tower of Babel.
• Second Coming (When?) -- Just as there were 2000 cubits between the Ark and the Israelites, so there are 2000 years between 26-27 AD and 2026-2027 AD. From when "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen" (Rev. 18:2) on 11 Sept. 2001 (sun fire in Ophiuchus) till "in the (lunar) cup which she (Virgo) hath filled fill to her double" (Rev. 18:6) is 300 degree months bringing us to 2026. From when the Philadelphia Era began in 1517 with the "open door" of the Protestant Reformation (sun in Sagittarius) till the lunar "crown" (Rev. 3:11) on Taurus that is a two-pronged key that "opens" (+149
°) and "shuts" (+360°) (Rev. 3:7) is 2026. From when "a branch shall grow out of his (Jesse's) roots" (Scorpio's eight limbs look like roots) in 26 AD till "ye (Canis Major) draw water out of the (solar & lunar) wells of salvation" (Isa. 12:3) is 2000 years ending in 2026. From when "he (Auriga) sat on the (Milky Way) Mount of Olives" and "the (Gemini & Orion) disciples came unto him privately saying, Tell us when shall these things be and what shall be the (Zodiac) sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" (Matt. 24:3) in 30 AD till "the eagles (Lyra, Aquila) be gathered together" (Matt. 24:28) and "they shall (lunar eyeball) see the (Sagittarius) son of man coming in the (Milky Way) clouds of heaven with power and great (solar) glory" (Matt. 24:30) is 2026 AD. From when the (lunar) axe is laid at the (Scorpio) root" (Matt. 3:10) till (Perseus' "sword" and Hercules' "club") fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his (solar golden) wheat into the garner" (3:11-12) is 2026 AD. From when our Lord "weighed the (brown lunar crescent) mountains in (Libra) scales" (40:12) and "the nations ... as the small (brown) dust of the (Libra) balance" (40:15) in 539 B.C. till our Lord (Sagittarius) "measured the (blue solar) waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out (blue solar) heaven with the (red radius line compass) span" (the distance between the tip of the thumb and the tip of the little finger when the hand is fully extended)(40:12) and "Behold, the nations are as a (blue) drop of a (black Zodiac circle) bucket" (40:15) in 2026 A.D. is 2564° years till He brings "his (solar blue earth -- "they shall inherit the earth" -- Matt. 5:5) reward ... with him" (40:10). "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength (a resurrection in 2026 A.D.); they shall mount up with wings as eagles (Aquila; Lyra; Cygnus); they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint (in a resurrection in 2026 A.D.) (40:31).  From when "I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands (lunar shield and red radius line spear held by Gemini), wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the (red radius line) walls, and I will assemble them (Gemini) into the midst of this city" (Jer. 21:4) and "Mine (lunar red) heart within me is (half moon) broken because of the prophets; all my (Milky Way) bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom (a red lunar cup of) wine hath overcome ... For the land is full of (red radius line) adulterers ... For both prophet and priest (Gemini) are profane (red moon); yea, in my (red radius line) house have I found their wickedness, saith the Lord" (23:9-11) and "I will ... make them drink the (red lunar) water of gall" (a metaphor for snake venom -- Deut 32:33) (23:15) because "they are prophets of the (lunar red) deceit of their own heart" (23:26) "that use their (lunar red) tongues, and say, He saith" (23:31) to their "perpetual shame" (red radius line in Canis Major) (23:40) in 585 B.C. until "I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their (red radius line) folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase" (Coma and Virgo pregnant) (Jer. 23:3) is 2026 AD.  From when "I will (red radius line) break his (crescent) yoke from off thy (Taurus) neck, and will (red radius line) burst thy bonds, and (Gemini) strangers shall no more serve themselves of him" (Jer. 30:8) in 539 B.C.; and from when "I was chastised, as a (Taurus) bullock unaccustomed to the yoke" (Jer. 31:18) in 539 B.C. TILL "I will satiate the soul of the (Gemini) priests with (solar white) fatness" (31:14) in 2026 A.D. and men appear to be travailing with child: "Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins (Gemini), as a (pregnant) woman in travail, and all faces are turned into (solar white) paleness?" (30:6) in 2026 A.D., is seven times around plus 44° years. Clockwise from "the day that I lifted up mine (Aquarius;Castor; Cepheus) hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt (the Exodus in 1446 B.C.) into a land that I had espied for them, flowing (out of Aquarius's bucket) with (lunar white) milk and (solar golden) honey" (Ez. 20:6)(sun in Gemini) till "I will bring you out from the (Gemini) people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty (Aquarius; Castor; Cepheus) hand, and with a stretched out (Aquarius;Castor; Cepheus) arm, and with fury (solar fire from red radius line Aquarius' bucket) poured out" (Ez. 20:34) at the Second Coming of our Lord in 2026 A.D. (moon in Aquarius) is 3471° years  which is 9 laps plus 231° years more.  
• Sibyl -- Babylonians worshipped the god Sibi as the "collective personification of the seven evil spirits" and the word sibi means seven (Mythology of All Races, Langdon, p.147). The god Sibi seems to have survived in India to this day as Siva, who is also worshipped as a seven-headed serpent (The letters "b" and "v" alternate in many languages). The priestess who claimed to listen to and speak for the serpent was called a sibyl and the books of these priestesses were Sibylline books. The serpent's voice is a hiss, and the hissing letters of our alphabet are called sibilants. The Latin word sibilo means to hiss and is at times directly connected with the voice of the serpent (see this word in Harper's Latine Dictionary). In Apte's Sanscrit dictionary we find Siva defined as "serpent" and "the number seven." Our own word "seven" seems to be related to this Sibi-Siva root as is also the root sep meaning "seven" in such words as septet. In Egypt the word Sep is defined as "serpent," "chief of seven," the word "Seba" is "serpent of evil" and Sepa is "serpent." (An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Budge) and "a mythological serpent fiend." On the other hand, the name "Sibyl" in Hebrew means "an ear of corn" (grain) pointing to Virgo the Virgin. In this constellation we find Subilon (a spike of wheat) and Subilah (who carries). The plural is "Shibboleth." Cicero's opinion of the Sibylline books was "that they were rather calculated to extinguish than to propagate superstition." Consequently their subject was not the idolatrous religion of Rome. Cicero also informs us that they predicted a king who was to arise about that time, whose sovereignty was to be universal, and under whose rule the world should be at peace. The Sibyl seems next to say, "The virgin comes who shall bear the promised progeny of heaven, who shall revive the worship of that Deity, long hid beneath the idolatries of the iron age, whose early reign, whose age of gold, he shall restore." (Virgil thought Peace treaty of Brundisium in 40 BC under the consulate of Pollio was the commencement). Therefore, when the CHURCH (Sibyl) is righteous, she is VIRGO, or a seven-branched MENORAH. When the CHURCH (Sibyl) sins, she is a seven-headed SNAKE. "He says he means to clear his mind of me" refers to those who left AC and the WCG because of its VENOM. "Let's not quibble Sibyl!" A Bible follower must leave the WCG (Sibyl) and must also leave the UNITED STATES (Sibyl) in order to be free to obey the Bible.
• Star -- Who are the STARS? The seven lighted wicks or "STARS" or "angels" are messengers of the seven churches (Rev. 1:16,20; 12:4, 7-9; Job 38:7) -- the LEADING human TEACHER of each church. The Torah READER (Luke 4:16; Acts 13:15,27; 15:21) or WRITER or MESSENGER (Haggai 1:13) of the Synagogue was known as the "angel" of the Synagogue. "Angels" (Heb. "elohim") can refer to human "judges" or "rulers" (Ex. 22:8,28; Ps. 82:6). The twelve STARS in Joseph's dream represented the LEADERS of the twelve tribes of Israel (Gen. 37:9-10). In Balaam's prophecy, our LORD is a "STAR out of Jacob" (Num. 24:17-19). The little horn "cast down ... the STARS to the ground, and stamped upon ... the MIGHTY and the HOLY PEOPLE" -- Jews and Christians (Bible followers) (Dan. 8:9-24). "They that turn many to RIGHTEOUSNESS" are like "the STARS" (Dan.12:3). Our Lord says, "I am ... the bright and morning STAR" (Rev. 22:16). "STARS" therefore represent RIGHTEOUS RULERS described as burning wicks. "And there shall be (Zodiac) signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars" (Luke 21:25).
• Sun -- The SUN is not to be worshipped. It is a servant (shemesh) that visually becomes part of the constellation it is travelling through. "And there shall be (Zodiac) signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars" (Luke 21:25). 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 one of the "SEALS" keeping the Milky Way scroll closed (6:1; 8:1) or Satan (Cetus) bound (20:3) or God's servants protected (7:3). 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). It is VOMIT (2 Pet. 2:22). The sun is also a symbol for Jesus / the gospel (Psalms 84:11, Malachi 4:2, Matthew 17:2, John 8:12; 9:5)
• Shem -- "Sem" executed Nimrod (Wilkinson, Egyptians vol.5, p.17) "by the power of God" and then cut his body into pieces (vol.4, pp.330-332; cp. Judges 19:29) or tearing him limb from limb (p.81, Sanchoniathon). Shem was also known as "Sheth" (Num. 24:17). Typho was called Seth (Epiphanius, Adv. Haeres., book 3). Plutarch gives to Typhon the titles of "Seth" and "Smy", and the latter in Greek would be "Smu" which is evidently the same as "Semu". Therefore, another account reads: "Set, the brother of Osiris, rebelled against him and cut his body in pieces" (Rawlinson's Egypt and Babylon). Both Seth and Shem are synonymous and mean "the appointed one" (p.65, Hislop). He was called Sydyc (Melchizedek -- p. 47. Sanchoniathon). "Adonizedek king of Jerusalem, the same was Shem" (Jasher 16:11). Just as Nimrod was torn in pieces in Babylon by the hand of Shem when his body was dismembered and the pieces distributed throughout the cities of Nimrod's dominion, so also Orpheus was torn to pieces in Thrace, and Bacchus was torn to pieces in Greece, and Osiris was torn to pieces in Egypt. As further proof that Typhon was Titan, or Shem, it is related by Plutarch that when Typhon was subsequently conquered, he fled away and begat Hierosolymus and Judaeus (Plutarch De Iside, S. 31; Cumberland's Sanchoniathon, p.108). That is Hierosalem, or Jerusalem, and Judea. This is a mystical way of saying that he was the founder of Jerusalem and the ancestor of the Jews. This tends to identify Shem with Melchizedek, whose name means "righteous king," and who was king of Salem or Jerusalem. As "priest of the Most High God" (Heb. 7:1), he was evidently the origin of the name Jerusalem, or Hierosalem, "Hieros" or "Hiereus" meaning "priest." Typhon overcame Osiris "not by force or open war, but, having entered into a conspiracy with SEVENTY-TWO of the LEADING MEN of Egypt, he got him into his power and put him to death, and then cut his body into pieces and sent the different parts to so many different cities throughout the country" (Wilkinson's Egyptians 4:330-332). This agrees with Diodorus who reported that Egypt was divided into SEVENTY-TWO Nomes and each had a JUDGE (Diodorus 1:48-58; Hislop, p.64 note). Ancient Greeks recognized Shem as Typhon of Egypt and he was also recognized as such by Herodotus (485-425 B.C.) and Plutarch (46 B.C.). Plutarch says that Shem was a fair person with a red complexion. “TYPHON HAD RED HAIR” (De Iside et Osiride , 362. xxx). Shem (Typhon -- a derogatory name applied to him by the Egyptians) “was red in complexion” and “had red hair.” For an account of Nimrod’s death at the hands of Shem (Typhon) see Diodorus of Sicily, Vol. I, Book 1, para. 21, and para. 88. Notice the following interesting quote: “RED oxen, however, may be sacrificed, because it is thought that this was the colour of TYPHON (Shem), who plotted against Osiris [another name for Nimrod] and was then punished by Isis [Semiramis] for the death of her husband. Men also, if they were of the same colour as Typhon, were sacrificed, they say, in ancient times by the kings at the tomb of Osiris; however, only a few Egyptians are now found RED in colour, but the majority of such are non-Egyptians” (Diodorus of Sicily, Book I, para. 88).
• Scorpions
-- "children of Israel" (Ez. 2:6; Amos 7:8); Roman catapults called "SCORPIONS" threw stones weighing a TALENT each (Wars 5:6:3; Rev. 9:10; 16:21) in 70 AD. Being around "rebellious" "impudent" and "stiffhearted" men is like dwelling "among SCORPIONS" (Ez. 2:6). Rehoboam's reply to the deputation who wanted him to lighten the tax burden was, "I will chastise you with SCORPIONS" (2 Chr. 10:14) or impose OPPRESSIVE TAXES. In 612 A.D. Mohammed publicly proclaimed his mission to convert all so-called Christians and infidels to the Koran. These were Greek and Latin "CHRISTIANS" who were image-worshippers and idol-worshippers in practice -- who weren't "SEALED with the Holy Spirit" (Eph. 1:13) because they didn't depart "from iniquity" (2 Tim. 2:19). Moslems called them "dogs and infidels" and treated them accordingly. Arabs offered conquered peoples the choice of accepting the Koran, or of PAYING TRIBUTE MONEY, or of death by the sword (scimitar like a scorpion tail in shape and thrust point first just like a scorpion tail would strike). Christians could buy their liberty to continue in their own religion, but only at the cost of HEAVY TRIBUTE. This is the meaning of "as the torment of a SCORPION." See Jeremiah 8:3 and Job 3:2 for examples of those who prefer death to life. Historians often refer to Papal Edicts and Bulls as the "thunders" from the seven-hilled city of Rome. Therefore we read that "seven thunders uttered their voices" (10:3) in reply. Gibbon uses the word and says "The spiritual thunders of the Vatican depend on the force of opinion; if that opinion be supplanted by reason, the sound may idly waste itself in the air" (ch. 70). Luther said, "Terrible as the lightning and the thunder, fulminatory Bulls and anathemas impended over the heads of those who incurred pontifical displeasure" (Antichrist Revealed, p.47). John was told to "write them not" (10:4) because he was only to "write ... true and faithful" words (Rev. 21:5). Similarly, Luther replied to the Pope's final Bull thundered in June 1520, by gathering an audience outside the walls of Wittenberg where he deliberately burned the Papal Bull and Edicts. In this manner the "seven thunders" were "sealed up" (10:4) which is portrayed astronomically by a full moon SEAL pushed onto Scorpio's SEVEN-segmented, poisonous stinger -- 1 Cor. 15:56. (1633 A.D. -- 180 degree-years from Orion) The full moon censors libel and blasphemy ("the sting of death is sin" -- 1 Cor. 15:56) while the sun radiates truth. What happened on this lunar date? What was the pope's libel? If we add 180° YEARS, we arrive at 1633 when Papal bulls and edicts were "thundered" from the seven-hilled city of Rome (seven-segmented Scorpio stinger -- 1 Cor. 15:56) to condemn Galileo for believing in HELIOCENTRISM. The Papal condemnation of Galileo for "having believed and held the doctrinewhich is false and contrary to the sacred and divine Scriptures, that the Sun is the center of the world and does not move from east to west and that the Earth moves and is not the center of the world" -- June 22, 1633 -- required him to recant by swearing an oath. Is the earth stationary and do the sun, moon, and planets revolve around it perhaps once per day (cp. Ps. 93:1, 96:10, 104:5, 1 Chr. 16:30 and Eccl. 1:5)? Galileo believed that the earth was ROTATING which can be proven with Foucault's PENDULUM (Scorpio and the FULL MOON plumb bob suspended from Scorpio's stinger with red radius line string) swinging in a constant plane of oscillation (Milky Way path) from one side (the lunar extreme) to the other (the solar extreme) yet appearing to travel ina full circle (Zodiac) in 24 hours at the poles and 48 hours at 30 degrees latitude. Once again, the FULL MOON NEUTRALIZES Scorpio's stinger using it as a pendulum. "SEAL up those things which the seven thunders uttered" (red lines represent speech) (10:4). To prove that the earth REVOLVES around the SUN, simply observe the same section of sky six months apart (SUN and MOON positions 180° apart) with a telescope and the stars (black zodiac) will seem to shift positions due to PARALLAX. Also RETROGRADE MOTION of planets is most easily explained by HELIOCENTRIC model...
• Seven-Part Timeline of the Apocalypse -- 1.) Chapters 1 & 2: The Ephesian Era existed from sun in Sagittarius ("eyes like a flame of fire ... out of his mouth ... two-edged sword" -- Rev. 1:12-17) (96 A.D.) clockwise opposite to full moon in Gemini ("thou hast LEFT thy first love" (2:4) 180° away from Sagittarius = 276 A.D.). These Christians survived until the reign of Bahram II (276-293) when "Zoroastrianism was promoted in the empire and other religious communities were persecuted." (Christianity in Iran, A Brief History by Massoume Price). Our Lord "removed the [gold radius line FULL MOON] candlestick out of his place" in Persia (Rev. 2:5). The Smyrna Era existed from 303 to 313 A.D. which was the "tribulation ten days" (2:10) -- Diocletian's persecution 10° years -- from the lunar CRESCENT sword in Sagittarius (303) ("death" -- 2:10) to the SUN crown in Sagittarius (313) ("crown of life" -- 2:10). The Pergamos Era existed from the sun in Sagittarius (313) ("he who hath the sharp sword CRESCENT with two edges" -- 2:12) to Capricorn (+30° = 343) ("Satan's seat" -- 2:13) and back to Capricorn (+ 360° = 703 A.D.) again ("where Satan dwelleth" -- 2:13) since the phrase is mentioned twice. The black pot of "hidden (white & round) manna" (Ex. 16:14,31) is portrayed by a white crescent since the black lid is ajar. It was brought forth on Yom Kippur when the High Priest returned to bless the people after a GOAT was sacrificed. By 703 the Byzantine North African territories of Algeria and Tunisia, as well as Morocco, fell to the Islamic Empire and many Christians fled to Spain. Also in 703 Armenian Christian nobles or nakharars were massacred in Nakhichevan Cappadocia by Moslems -- whose sign was a CRESCENT. Satan "dwells" in Islam. (2.) Chapters 2 & 3: The Thyatira Era existed for 1260 years (Jezebel's "space to repent" -- 3 1/2 years -- Rev. 2:21 & James 5:17) from sun in Sagittarius (96 A.D.) ("eyes like a flame of fire" -- 2:18) clockwise to full moon in Gemini (+1260° = 1356 A.D.) ("her CHILDREN " -- 2:23). The Bubonic Plague in 1356 A.D. was Jezebel's "(sick) bed," "great tribulation" (Rev. 2:22) and "I will kill her CHILDREN" (2:23). Likewise with the French defeat at Poitiers in 1356 and the Golden Bull of 1356 which made it law to choose the German emperor without Papal approval. The FULL MOON in Gemini is a WHITE swollen LUMP in the groin area called a bubo. Symptoms include gangrene which causes skin tissue to turn BLACK. The Sardis Era existed from Gemini (1356) ("her CHILDREN" --2:23) to Ophiuchus (1507) ("HOLD fast ... defiled their garments [by holding a slimy unclean snake] ... WALK with me" -- 3:3-4) or 151 years. In Roman times Ophiuchus was known as Asclepius who was a healer who learned the secret of IMMORTALITY, hence "a name that thou LIVEST " (3:1) -- Asclepius. King Uladislaus of Hungary in 1507 was presented with two letters VICIOUSLY denouncing the followers of John Huss -- known as Bohemian Brethren. He therefore forbade their meetings and destroyed their books. Their clergy were made prisoners. This was Scorpio's lunar CRESCENT stinger under Ophiuchus. The Philadelphia Era existed from Sagittarius (1507-1517 A.D.) ("he that hath the KEY of David" [CRESCENT arrow] -- 3:7) clockwise to Taurus (+149° = 1666) ("KEY ... openeth and no man shutteth" -- 3:7) the moon door with TWO-PRONGED KEY back to Taurus again (+ 360° = 2026 A.D.) ("shutteth and no man openeth" -- 3:7) the moon door on Yom Kippur of 2026. Why 1666? Because that is when the Fire of London, the Bubonic Plague on London and battles between the Dutch and English fleets occurred indicating to many the "end of the world." The Laodicean Era exists from Hercules (1507 -- when Martin Luther was ordained a priest) to Andromeda (+159° = 1666) ("neither cold nor hot" -- 3:15) and back to Andromeda (+360° = 2026 A.D.) ("neither cold nor hot" -- 3:16) again. The phrase is mentioned twice. Notice that Andromeda is located on the Spring equinox of March 21 which is "LUKEWARM." Andromeda is "wretched, and miserable, and poor, ... and naked" (3:17), chained to a rich lifestyle. Consumed by the fish of debt. Hercules (Samson) is "blind" (3:17). She is out of synchronization with Perseus, her husband, and therefore is lacking the gold (SUN), white clothing (MILKY WAY) and eyesalve (gibbous MOON of Taurus) that our Lord (Sagittarius) has to offer. The 15 degrees of Andromeda-Laodicea are the "hour of temptation" (Rev. 3:10 & 18:10,17,19) which our Lord will keep Perseus-Philadelphia away from because if "a day is a (360-day) year" (Nu. 14:34; Ez. 4:6) and there are 24 hours in a day, then each "hour" is 15°. How does Perseus-Philadelphia avoid this "hour of temptation"? Perseus has wings on his heels and flies north. By travelling up the Al-Can Highway (Milky Way) to Whitehorse (Sagittarius), Perseus goes from "hot" (April 20 to May 20; "fiery trials") to "cold" (Nov. 23 - Dec. 22) and avoids "lukewarm." Whitehorse itself is "hot" in summer and "cold" in winter also. Perseus-Philadelphia tastes yummy. Notice that other constellations that see the danger are also in flight along this road (Aquila, Cygnus & Lyra). But when Andromeda tries this, Sagittarius spits her out of his mouth and the Milky Way becomes his sputum. She doesn't taste good. Laodicea's LUNAR door to the Lamb is BARRED with a red bar. The door is either the heart of Taurus or the anus of Aries -- depending on whether she loves him or not. Aries continually knocks on the door of her Taurus heart. (3.) Chapters 5 & 6: John was exiled by Domitian to Patmos in 86 A.D. This is indicated by the CLOSED-door CRESCENT IN ARIES. (Aries -- "Lamb ... having seven HORNS and seven EYES" -- Rev. 5:6). But the "Lamb OPENED one of the SEALS" (Rev. 6:1) for preaching Christ is Lord and God. In other words, John was RELEASED from Patmos 10° years later by Nerva in 96 A.D. when Aries kicked the SUN-seal off the lunar CRESCENT "UNDERNEATH" with his hoof. If we add 240° years to 86 A.D. we get 326 A.D. when Constantine executed his eldest son Crispus and his second wife Fausta (CRESCENT in Sagittarius). Adding 10° years, we arrive at the SUN in Sagittarius. Constantine's DEATH in 337 A.D. (Sagittarius -- "a pale horse: and his name ... was DEATH" -- Rev. 6:7) was 241° years clockwise after John's revelation on Patmos in 96 A.D. (see Irenaeus Heresies & Eusebius Eccl. Hist.) Constantine's reign of 24 years (313-337) was a microcosm of the 241-year pagan Roman Empire. Chapter 7From 337 A.D. (sun in Sagittarius -- "SEALED ... of all the tribes ... of Israel" -- Rev. 7:3-4) we add 30° years to come to 367 when Picts, Scots, Saxons, and Franks attacked Roman Britain from all sides (Res Gestae 27:8). The Zodiac and Britain are both surrounded. Adding another 30° years we come to 397 when Stilicho repelled a Pictish, Irish and Saxon attack on Britain. Adding 30° years more we arrive at 427 A.D. Vortigern allowed Jutes, Saxons, Angles, Franks and Frisians into Britain to keep Picts out in 425-427. Etcetera. Finally we come to 697 A.D. On his death in 690, Theodore of Tarsus left behind a well-organized Sunday-keeping church in almost all of Britain. SUN-SEALED. Meanwhile 144,000 Celtic Bible-followers were SEALED with the Saturday Sabbath and LUNAR method of calculating Passover. The FULL MOON formed a SEAL in OPPOSITION to SUN-worship all around the Zodiac. MOON-SEALED. It is very likely that Eadfrith produced the Lindisfarne Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in Gaelic) prior to 698 in order to commemorate the elevation of Cuthbert's relics in that year, which is also thought to have been the occasion for which the St Cuthbert Gospel was produced. (4.) Chapter 8: Adding a 50-year Jubilee Cycle (8:1-3) to 337 (when Constantine died -- Rev. 6:2), we arrive at 387 A.D. (CRESCENT in Sagittarius) when Magnus Maximus invaded Italy in order to dispose of Valentinian II. Theodosius led an army against him and KILLED him the same year. Adding 120° years ("ONE THIRD" of the Zodiac -- Rev. 8:7-12) we come to 507 A.D. when Clovis I defeated the Visigoths in the Battle of Vouille (CRESCENT in Aries). Adding 15° years ("half an hour" -- 8:1) brings us to the SUN in Sagittarius on 402 A.D. when Alaric's Visigoths entered Italy. On 6 April 402, in Pollentia, the Visigoths, were distracted and celebrating Easter SUNday when Stilicho decided to attack. (Sagittarius -- Alaric "stood at the (church) altar (Ara), having a GOLDEN [sun] censer" -- Rev. 8:3). Although there was no clear victor, Stilicho managed to capture Alaric's wife, children, and other important relations. The Visigoths left Italy after losing the subsequent Battle of Verona to Stilicho in 402 A.D. Theodoric the Ostrogoth later married his daughter Amalasuntha to the Visigoth Eutharic, but Eutharic DIED in 522, so no lasting dynastic connection was established. (Sagittarius, not Aries, "opened seventh [SUN] SEAL" -- Rev. 8:1). Also in 522 the Catholic Burgundian king Sigismund KILLED his own son Sergeric, who was Theodoric's grandson (SUN-wound in Aries). From the start of this dynasty till its demise was 120 years just as from Sagittarius clockwise to Aries is 120° or "ONE THIRD" of the Zodiac (Rev. 8:7-12). This was probably our Lord's own royal blood line dynasty. Chapter 9aIf we add 360° years to 402 A.D. (sun in Sagittarius) we come to 762 A.D. when Al Mansour laid the foundation of the new capital at Baghdad (back again to Sagittarius -- "horses ... on their heads ...CROWNS like gold" -- Rev. 9:7). If we subtract 7°-12° years from our solar reference point of 762 A.D., we come to 750-755 A.D. -- the bow in Sagittarius: Abbasids assumed control of the Islamic world from 750-937 A.D. and moved the capital to Baghdad Iraq. But Spain fell under the control of an escaped descendant of the Umayyad family -- a second caliph who landed in al-Andalus and created the "Golden Caliphate", Abd al-Rahman. He was recognized in Cordova Spain in 755 A.D. -- just as the bow of Sagittarius looks like TWO goat HORNS. Whenever we encounter TWO HORNS, a new caliphate begins. Then in 788 a new Idrisid Caliphate of Maghreb (Morocco) rebelled against the Arabian Caliphs and established an independent state corresponding to the lunar crescent horn near the tail of Sagittarius ("tails like scorpions" -- 9:10; 788-974 A.D.). Notice that the Moslem goat (Capricorn -- Dan. 8) now has THREE HORNS or CALIPHATES (Abbasid, Umayyad and Idrisid). The Fatimid Caliphate (909–1171) was founded in 909 as the higher of two HORNS of Taurus by the eleventh Imam Abdullah al-Mahdi Billah and spanned a large area of North Africa. If we add 150° years ("five months" -- Rev. 9:5) clockwise from 762, we arrive at 912 A.D. (gibbous MOON in Taurus) when Abd Ar Rahman III of the deposed Umayyad Dynasty, conquered Andalusia from the Abbasid Caliph and reigned (912-961). This was called the Cordoba Caliphate of Spain (912-1031 A.D.). This is the lower horn of Taurus -- 3° later. Notice also the BLACK CRESCENT horn and WHITE gibbous TURBAN crown horn on Taurus -- indicating a total of FOUR contemporary CALIPHATES (Abbisid, Idrisid, Fatimid and Cordoban or Umayyad). Notice also the image of TWO much larger, 150°, HORN CRESCENTS forming the timeline -- indicating the duration of the Moslem goat's empire. Adding the second "five months" (Rev. 9:10), we come to 1062 A.D. (Libra -- Fat Arab CRESCENT "weighed in the balances, and art found wanting" -- Dan. 5:27). Persian Buyids ruled Baghdad from 932 till 1062. Seljuks took over from 1062 till 1258. Chapter 9b: From 1062 A.D. (sun in Sagittarius -- "horses ... on their heads ...crowns like GOLD " -- Rev. 9:7) we add 391° years ("an hour, a day, a month and a year" -- Rev. 9:15) to get 1453 A.D. (lunar crescents in Capricorn -- "four HORNS of the GOLDEN altar" -- Rev. 9:13). On April 27, 1062, Turkish leader Togrul Beg married the Caliph's daughter establishing himself in Islam. He died the same year and was succeeded by Alp Arslan who crossed the Euphrates at the head of the Turkish cavalry (Gibbon ch. 57, p.12). On May 29, 1453 A.D., the Turks conquered Constantinople. At least three more 391-year periods had their fulfillment before the Ottoman Empire ended. Chapter 10: On the 26th of May, just days before Constantinople fell (29th May) in 1453, Greek scholars fled west with illuminating Bible manuscripts -- like a Greek Olympic TORCH held by Orion giving light, making the Bible available to Europe and causing the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation. From 1453 A.D. (Orion -- "mighty angel ... his face as ... the SUN" -- Rev. 10:1) we add 180° years to arrive at 1633 when the Papacy condemned Galileo for believing the earth rotated and revolved around the sun (FULL MOON pendulum attached to Scorpio's stinger proves Galileo right and therefore SEALS "up those things which the seven thunders uttered" -- 10:4) (seven-segmented Scorpio stinger -- 1 Cor. 15:56). By 1483 Caxton published the earliest verses of the Bible to be printed in English. Chapter 11: Luther was born 1483 and Zwingli born 1484. From 1483-4 A.D. (sun in Gemini: "two witnesses ... FIRE proceedeth out of their mouth" -- 11:3-5) + 30° years, equals the 5th of May, 1514 when "the beast (Leo) ... shall ... kill them" (burned at the red radius stake in the sun in Leo -- nothing is left of them) when the ninth session council orator officially declared: "Now no one contradicts, no one opposes." Adding 3 1/2 years (11:11), we arrive at 31st Oct, 1517 when Luther posted his 95 theses to the golden Wittenburg Church doors in Germany, defying Papal Rome and inaugurating the Reformation (sun pumpkin in black cat Leo). After 3 1/2 rotations, Gemini goes from prostrate to right-side up. Pope LEO X excommunicated Luther in 1521. William Tyndale met with other reformers in the White Horse Tavern exactly 3 1/2 years (11:11) from 1517 (SUN in Gemini) in 1521 when the FULL MOON door swung open in the Sagittarius White Horse Tavern. The same "hour" (1517 + 30 degree-years = within 1547), a tenth of the city or 36 degrees of Virgo's 43-degree length, fell beneath the horizon (11:13) symbolizing Papal loss of Protestant England in 1534 with the Act of Supremacy. Henry VIII declared himself head of the English church in 1535 and thus "shut (papal) heaven" (11:6). He expropriated minor monasteries and ordered the Bible placed in every church (1536). England has 36 counties. The remaining seven degrees of Virgo represent papal loss of "seven" (11:13) provinces of Protestant Holland in stages beginning in 1548. If we add 1260° months (11:3) to 1483 (105 years), we arrive at 1587 when Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded; in 1587 Francis Drake also sailed into a crowded Cadiz harbor and destroyed some 30 Spanish ships; and 1588 when the Spanish Armada was defeated (FULL MOON cannonball in Sagittarius: "temple of God was OPENED in heaven ... and there was seen the ark (Argo -- British Navy) -- Rev. 11:19). "The horse and his rider (Sagittarius) hath he thrown into the sea ... they sank ... as a stone ... as lead" (Ex. 15:1-10). (5.) Chapter 12In 34 A.D. Stephen was stoned (Acts 7:59) "to end a (490-year) vision and a prophet" (Dan. 9:24) + 280 years (nine months' pregnancy [270] plus "ten days" [10] labor pains of Diocletian's persecution -- Isa. 13:8; Matt. 24:8; 1 Th. 5:3; Rev. 2:10) = 313 A.D. (Virgo: "woman clothed with the sun ... brought forth a man rule all nations with a rod of iron" -- Rev. 12:1-5) when Constantine became emperor of Rome and legalized "Christianity" by the Edict of Milan + 293 degree-years = 606 A.D. when Emperor Phocas gave Pope Boniface III supremacy over other churches (eclipse in Cancer: "ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns" -- Rev. 13:1). Also from the sun in Virgo (12:1) 313 + 17° years ("MOON under her [Virgo's] feet" -- 12:1) = 330 when Constantine stole the treasures and statues of the PAGAN temples in Greece to decorate New Rome (Constantinople) and dedicated Constantinople and prohibited PAGAN rites in his new capital. The MOON symbolizes "RULERS of DARKNESS" (Eph. 6:12; Col. 1:13). Constantine put the "MOON under her feet" (12:1). Rome fell in 476 when Cetus began (2 Th. 2:7-8). Also 313 + 150° months = 325 A.D. (moon in Aquarius: "earth opened her mouth" -- 12:16) "when the enemy shall come in like a flood" (Isa. 59:19), the crescent-shaped moon-mouth under Virgo opened up gibbously at Aquarius (324-325) to swallow Licinius's army in 324 when Constantine defeated him at the Battles of Adrianople, Hellespont, and finally Chrysopolis on 18 September 324, and then shut him up within the walls of Byzantium (another open mouth) and executed him in 325 A.D. Notice a white lunar frown before, and a black lunar grin after. The earth opened her mouth in 318 A.D. also and swallowed up armies in burial GRAVES. (150° divided by 30 earth days = 5 lunar days + 313 = 318 A.D.). Constantine's son Crispus was leader in victorious military operations against Franks and Alemanni in 318, 320 and 323. Chapter 13From 19 Feb 607 A.D. (eclipse in Cancer: "ten horns, and upon his horns ten CROWNS" -- 13:1; "mouth as a lion" -- 13:2) when Emperor Phocas gave Pope Boniface III supremacy over other churches + 331 degree-years = 937 A.D. (sun in Gemini: "FIRE ... from heaven ... in the sight of MEN" -- Rev. 13:13) when de facto Abbasid power in Baghdad ended, symbolized by the Caliph's bodyguard being massacred, who were the last body of troops (Gemini) still loyal to the Abbasid dynasty (937); and the NAHRAWAN Canal (Milky Way) being blocked and breached to flood the countryside to impede the advance of an army in 937-938. It heavily impaired local Baghdad agriculture for centuries to come and succeeded in destroying the agriculture of the region, hitherto the breadbasket of the Abbasid capital. Also local provinces refused to send (gold sun coin) tax revenues back to Baghdad (black Zodiac). Now 607 + 1260° years ("42 months" -- 13:5) = 1866-1867 A.D. (moon in Capricorn: "another beast...two horns...image [reflection] of the beast" -- 13:11-15) when the Battle of Sadowa occurred where Papal Austria was overthrown by non-Roman Catholic Prussia. Garibaldi overthrew the Papal Venetia in October 1866; and Italy crowned its first king, Victor Emmanuel in 1866. Also, Romania became independent of the Ottoman Empire in 1866 and Serbia became independent one year later. Also 607 + "42 months" (13:5) = 5 Oct 610 A.D. (moon in Capricorn: "another beast...two horns...image [reflection] of the beast" -- 13:11-15) when Emperor Phocas died. Also 607 + "42 months" that "power was given unto him [the pope] to continue" (13:5) = 1866-1867 A.D. when the Battle of Sadowa occurred where Papal Austria was overthrown by non-Roman Catholic Prussia. Garibaldi overthrew the Papal Venetia in October 1866; and Victor Emanuel allied himself with Prussia in 1866 and was rewarded with Venetia. Now 606 + "42 months" (13:5) = 1866-1867 A.D. when Romania became independent of the Ottoman Empire in 1866 and Serbia became independent one year later. Thus "power was given unto him (the sultan) to continue 42 months" (13:5) only.  (6.) Chapter 14: If we add "1600 furlongs" (years or degrees) (14:20) to 96 A.D., we arrive at the victory of Prince Eugene at the Battle of Zenta on 11 Sept. 1697, resulting in an end to Catholic-Moslem wars, and the Peace of Ryswick signed on 15th Sept. 1697 A.D. ending wars between Catholic and Protestant (SUN in Sagittarius -- "man, having on his head a golden CROWN, -- 14:14), as well as the British Anti-Catholic Settlement of 1697. Sagittarius also has "in his hand a ... (lunar) SICKLE" since Ottoman invaders of Hungary were routed at the Battle of Mohacs Aug. 12, 1687 and Venetians took Athens from the Turks on Sept. 28th, 1687. More importantly, on Sept. 26th, 1687 Amsterdam's city council voted to support William of Orange's invasion of England, which became the Glorious Revolution. Adding 57° years to 1697 we come to 1754 (SUN in Aquarius: "one of the four beasts gave ... seven GOLDEN CUPS" -- 15:7) when Louis XVI was born -- last king of France. Adding 180° to 1697 brings us to 1712° months (Lyra) or 1871-2 lunar° years (Cygnus) or 1874-5 prophetic° years (Aquila) or 1877 solar° years (Sagittarius) (FULL MOON in Gemini: "GRAPES ... FULLY RIPE" 14:19). The Milky Way vine "trodden" by Gemini can be either the Moslem or Roman Catholic vine. Therefore, the red GRAPE under Gemini is the Battle of Vilmergen in 1712 or Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 -- both Catholic defeats; or the 1875-1877 Herzegovina Uprising against the Ottoman Empire or the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878 -- both Moslem defeats. Adding 180° to 1754, we arrive at 1769° months (Lyra) or 1928-9 lunar° years (Cygnus) or 1931-2 prophetic° years (Aquila) or 1934 solar° years (Sagittarius) (FULL MOON in Leo: "GRAPES ... FULLY RIPE" -- 14:19). The Hydra vine "trodden" by Leo can be either the Moslem or Roman Catholic vine. Therefore, the red grape under Leo is the Russo-Turkish War from 1768 to 1774 or the Battle of Sabilla (1929), Kufra (1931), Kashgar (1933) or the First and Second Battles of Urumqi (1933-34) -- all Muslim defeats -- "and blood came out of the winepress" (14:20). Chapter 15: If we include Louis XVI's life from 1754 till he summoned the Estates-General in 1789 and gave these angry Frenchmen power (sun in Aquarius -- "one of the four beasts gave golden CUPS full of the wrath of God" -- Rev. 15:7) and add 129° years, we arrive at 1883-1918 A.D. (Gemini --"scorch men with FIRE" -- Rev. 16:8) from when the Triple Alliance was signed (1883) till the end of World War One (1918). This lower class of Frenchmen convened in the Salle des États in Versailles on 5 May 1789, ("temple ...of the testimony in heaven [government] was opened" -- 15:5) (gibbous moon-door opened for Girondins and Jacobins -- together as Gemini) till 1799 A.D. (120° months of Gemini moon) when Napoleon overthrew the Directory and became military dictator for 15 years. Chapter 16: 1789 A.D. (sun in Aquarius: "one of the four beasts [Aquarius] golden CUPS full of the wrath of God" -- 15:7) + 129° years = 1918 A.D. (sun in Gemini: "scorch men with FIRE " -- 16:8). 1789 + 120° months = 1799 (moon in Gemini which looks like a guillotine blade falling: "upon the men" -- 16:2). The French Revolution's SORE from 1789-1799 was Catholics having their heads cut off. 1789 + 18° years = 1807 (sun in black Aquarius River that's not circulating.) which marked the last significant naval battle called Battle of Copenhagen: British seized the neutral Dano-Norwegian fleet so it couldn't be used against Britain. 1789 + 6° years = 1795 (Jupiter in black Aquarius River that's not circulating). Napoleon's Revolutionary Wars were waged from 1795 till 1815 against the Roman Catholic ruling classes of other nations. 1789 + 17° years = 1806 (Venus in Pisces). Emperor [sun] of Austria abdicated (Cetus captured by fish). Notice that Cepheus is now behind bars which are heads on pikes. 1918 - 120° years = 1798 (Mars in Pisces). French army captured Rome and Pope arrested and taken away (Cetus tied to fish and pulled). 1918 - 92° years = 1826 (Saturn in Pisces). The Sultan massacred the Janizzaries (Cetus skewered). 1918 - 7° years = 1911 (Mercury neck collar for guillotine in Gemini). The first use of the plane in war was the Italian-Turkish War in 1911. Cetus represents the return to the status quo after 1815. Three vomited frogs or three World Wars (16:13-16), occur in 60 years (two laps around the Zodiac): From the first frog till the second frog is 360° months or 30 years which brings us from the Kaiser's beginning in 1914 till Hitler's end in 1945 (16:13). The "whole world" implies World War. Then finally the Viet Nam War which ended in 1975. It should have been called World War Three. Both World War One and Two were Papal attempts to reverse (REGURGITATE) the FRENCH Revolution and conquer FRANCE. The Viet Nam War was similar -- a Papal attempt to conquer FRENCH Indo-China (mostly Buddhist) and make it Catholic. (7.) Chapter 17: Garibaldi overthrew the temporal power of the Papal States in 1866-1870 A.D. and they incorporated into the Italian Kingdom of Victor Emmanuel who entered Rome 20 Sept. 1870, exactly 1260 years or "42 months" (Rev. 13:5) after 606-610 A.D. (sun in Cancer: "ten horns...burn her with FIRE" -- 17:16) + 130° years = 11 Sept. 2001 (sun in Ophiuchus-Hercules) when the World Trade Center's Twin Towers were both hit on September 11, within "one hour" of eachother (18:10), and fell (Hercules -- "angel come down ... having great power, and the earth was made BRIGHT with his GLORY" --Rev. 18:1). 1870 - 288° years = 1582 (crescent in Virgo: "golden CUP in her hand" -- 17:4) when the Gregorian Calendar was adopted setting the arbitrary date for "Easter." Also 20 Sept. 1870 (sun in Cancer) - 287° days = 8 December 1869 (crescent in Virgo: "golden CUP in her hand" -- 17:4) when the First Vatican Council convened defining "Papal Infallibility." Since that council did not formally close till 1960, other "abominations and filthiness" discussed at the Vatican could be included in the golden cup. Chapter 18: 20th Sept. 1870 (sun in Cancer: "ten horns...burn her with FIRE" -- 17:16) Rome captured by Italian King Victor Emmanuel II. If we add 130° years to 1870, we come to 11th Sept. 2001 A.D. when the World Trade Center's Twin Towers were both hit on September 11, within "one hour" of eachother, and fell (SUN in Ophiuchus-Hercules -- "angel come down ... having great power ... earth was made BRIGHT with his GLORY" --18:1). Adding 180° months = 11 Sep 2015 (MOON in Taurus: "a mighty angel took up a STONE...and cast it into the sea" -- 18:21) when a crane collapsed in Meccah + 492° days = red radius lunar trumpet on first full day of Trump's presidency -- 21 Jan 2017. One year later (19 Jan 2018) the border wall is on the table in Congress. This is the first bar of the bird cage or rope around Virgo. If we add 300° months to 11 Sep 2001 = 2026 (MOON in Virgo: "in the [LUNAR] CUP which she hath filled, fill to her double" -- 18:6) at the return of our Lord and Savior, Islamistan and Aztlan (composing what was formerly the U.S.) will be "thrown down"? Chapter 19If we add 25° years to 2001, we arrive at "Great Trumpet" (Matt. 24:31) of Yom Kippur, 2026 A.D. -- the VISIBLE Second Coming of our Lord, WITH his saints (SUN in Sagittarius -- "His eyes were like a flame of FIRE " -- 19:12). He chains and seals Satan the same day (SUN & MOON in Cetus: "set a SEAL upon him" Satan -- 20:3). But the actual SECRET rapture "FOR his bride" on the LONG BLAST of the "last trump" of the Feast of Trumpets (CRESCENT in Sagittarius -- "out of his mouth goeth a sharp SWORD " -- 19:15) may occur on 4 Jan 2024 instead. The "gathering together" comes right after the man of sin is revealed (2 Th. 2:3) (Abomination) which means a mid-trib rapture. "The Son of Man will come (secretly) when LEAST expected" (Matt. 24:44; Luke 12:40) -- not on Rosh HaShanah. The two witnesses (Gemini) ascend "up to heaven in a (lunar) cloud" (Rev. 11:2) three-and-a-half years after they begin testifying (Rev. 11:3). Notice that the (red radius) "rod of iron" (19:15) is also a LONG red TRUMPET. Just as Constantine's coming put an end to persecution against Christians, so Christ's coming will put an end to persecution against Christians. "Birth pangs" begin (Rev. 2:10; 1 Th. 5:3). Furthermore, 4 Jan 2024 (moon-door opens for five wise virgins: "heaven OPENED " -- 19:11) when Yeshua may graciously resurrect "we which are alive" (1 Th 4:17) to become immortal. But this LUNAR DOOR CLOSES in 2026 when Christ "shutteth and no man openeth" (Yom Kippur) (Rev. 3:7). Adding 335 days to Yom Kippur 2026, our Lord will defeat this world's hostile armies on Sept. 21, 2027 (Ophiuchus -- "angel standing in the SUN " -- 19:17). Chapter 20: If we add 1000° years to 2026 A.D. (+ 360° + 360° + 280°), we arrive at 3026 A.D. when Satan is released again to deceive Gog and Magog (sun in Gemini: "FIRE came down ... and devoured" Gog and Magog -- 20:9). The 12 moons are "THRONES" (20:4) and "BOOKS" (20:12) in 30-degree intervals which may indicate the right to a "speedy trial" or regular Bible study every lunar day or month. (counter-clockwise indicates a pole-shift has taken place in 2026 -- Isa. 24:1) Chapters 21 & 22: "No need of the SUN " means no time anymore; everything is eternal so it is ECLIPSED. "I will give to him that is athirst of the water fountain of life freely" (21:6), so there are twelve LUNAR CUPS. The "lake which burneth with FIRE " (21:8) is an ECLIPSE opposite the lamb. The "twelve GATES were twelve (LUNAR) PEARLS" (21:12, 21) that wax and wane as they open and close. "The lamb is the (FULL MOON) LIGHT of it" (21:23). Also "twelve kinds of (LUNAR) FRUITS " (22:2) and "her (Virgo) LIGHT was like a most precious jasper STONE (amber fire orange cp. Rev. 4:3 & Ez. 1:27) in the form of a gold wedding RING or gold CROWN -- solar corona laid at her feet).

• Tail -- false prophet (Isa. 9:14-15)
• Ten tribes (lost) -- ten servants (Luke 19:11-27); ten virgins (Matt.25); ten pieces of silver (Luke 15:8) or ten lepers (Luke 17:12)
• Tithing -- Ten percent of your increase is the Lord's. Otherwise you're a thief (Mal. 3:8).
• Tongue -- Language / Speech (Exodus 4:10)
• Time -- 360-Day-Year (Daniel 4:16, 23, 25, 32; 7:25; Daniel 11:13 margin); Times -- 720 Days (Daniel 7:25, Revelation 12:6, 14; 13:5)
• Trumpet -- alarm; loud warning of God's approach (Exodus 19:16-17, Joshua 6:4-5; Joel 2:1)
• Thief -- Sudden, secret rapture coming to "steal" his bride (1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, 2 Peter 3:10); "taken" (Matt. 24:40-41)
• Thorns / Thorny Ground -- Cares of this life (Mark 4:18-19)
• Tables of the Covenant -- Ten Commandments (Deut. 9:9,11)
• Truth -- God's Word (John 17:17); "thy law is the truth" (Ps. 119:142); "he shall judge the world in righteousness, and the people with his truth" (Ps. 96:13). "the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (John 12:48).
• "Thigh" -- Euphemism for the PENIS by Bible translators. It was the universal custom for anyone making a vow to place his hand upon either his own sexual member or upon that of the other person concerned. No higher testimony could be given or asked than the PENIS, the representative of Yahweh. Thus when Abraham asked his servant to swear to him, he said: "Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh: and I will make thee swear by the Lord, the God of heaven, and the God of earth" (Gen. 24:2). Another instance is "And the time drew nigh that Israel must die; and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, if now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me" (Gen. 47:29). And in Lamenations we read: "We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians to be satisfied with bread" (Lam. 5:6). God himself reviles Pharaoh for breaking the covenant when "he had given his hand" (Ez. 17:18); and when Solomon was made king of Israel "all the princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons likewise of King David, submitted themselves unto Solomon the king" (1 Chr. 29:24) which should instead read, "gave the hand under Solomon". The ancient Egyptians adopted a similar practice, the individual taking an oath grasping his own PHALLUS. We have also the account concerning the engagement, by Tyndarus, of the suitors of Helen to avenge her, in which he is said to have compelled them to swear upon a horse's testicles. A similar method of taking the oath persists to this day among the Arabs, the testator placing his hand upon hix own sexual organ.
• Tree of Life -- Obedience to the Bible (Rev. 22:14)
• Thule -- Servius writes that Thule lies to the north-west of Britain, towards the Orknies and Ireland, and enjoys continual day-light, when the sun is in cancer (Geor. 1): this exactly determines Thule to be Iceland. Bochart shows that Thule is Syriac for Umbrae; so named from the long nights in winter; whence Statius says, "Nigrae Littora Thules" (Sylv). Pliny tells us that according to Pytheas, night lasted six months at Thule, an island six days' sailing northward from Britain, and within one day's sailing from the Frozen sea (2:75; 4:16).
• Temple -- assembly of believers (1 Cor. 3:9,16; 6:19). In 2 Corinthians 6:16 we read, "And what agreement hath the naos (temple) of God with idols? for ye are the naos (temple) of God." Ephesians 2:19-21 says, "Ye are ... the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone; in whom all the building ... groweth unto an holy naos (temple) in the Lord." First Corinthians 3:16-17 says, "Know ye not that ye are the naos (or temple) of God ... If any man defile the naos (temple) of God, him shall God destroy: for the naos (temple) of God is holy, which naos (temple) ye are." The "man of sin ... sitteth in the naos (temple) of God, showing himself that he is God." (2 Th. 2:3-4). 
• Tabernacle -- human body (2 Cor. 5:1)
• Transubstantiation -- Claiming to turn bread and wine into body and blood of Messiah. In St. Peter's in Rome, during the coronation of a new pope, he is carried up to the throne above the High Altar where the throne is built into the architecture. He sits literally "above that which is called God" since a consecrated host is placed on the High Altar. The priest actually claims to "create his Creator" through "transubstantiation."
• Toledoth -- Each section of Genesis which carries on the purpose of the book begins with the phrase "These are the generations of" (2:4; 5:1; 6:9; 10:1; 11:10; 11:27; etc). The word Toledoth ("generations") refers not to what goes before, but to what comes after. The toledoth of Abraham are those who sprang from him, not those from whom he sprang. In Ruth 4:18, the toledoth of Pharez are his descendants, not his ancestors. The choice of the line of blessing mankind is narrowed more and more. First it is Shem's, then Terah's, then Abraham's, then Isaac's, then Jacob's. All confess that the book was finished centuries before any indication that Israel had a blessing for gentiles. But we now know that every step in the selection of race was taken with absolute correctness. Christ came from this selection. Therefore "the toledoth of the heavens and the earth" (2:4) are not the origin of the heaven and earth; they are on the contrary, the things for which the heavens and earth were created, namely man and human history. The critics blunder. It's not a second account of Creation in reverse order at all. But a description of the origin of the garden of Eden which was created after Adam was formed. Every new section of the book begins with just such a recapitulation. Its never a mere repetition.
• Times -- Don't observe "TIMES" (Lev. 19:26; Deut. 18:10-14). Paul is referring to pagan celebrations in Gal. 4:8-11 (Sunday, Easter, X-mas). "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-Worship -- "Shall I bow down to a tree trunk?" (Jer. 44:19) "When ye offer your gifts ... ye pollute yourselves with all your idols" (Ez. 20:31).  Thus saith the Eternal, Learn not the way of the heathen ... For the customs of the people are vain; for one cutteth a TREE out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They DECK it with SILVER and with GOLD; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright like the palm tree, but speak not" (Jer. 10:2-5). “Little children, keep yourselves from IDOLS” (1 John 5:21). “A CORRUPT TREE bringeth forth EVIL fruit” (Matt. 7:17). "Thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon ...The Lord has broken the rod of the wicked ... All the lands are at rest and at peace; they break into singing. Even the PINE TREES and the cedars of Lebanon exult over you and say, ' Now that you have been laid low, no woodsman comes to CUT US DOWN'" (Isa. 14:5-8).
• 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 (Job 15:30; Ps. 1:3; Jer. 17:8; Ez. 20:46-47; 21:3-4; Hosea 14:8; Luke 23:31). The two olive trees of Romans 11 are Jews (good) and "Gentiles" (Greek Israelites -- wild) and thus Paul defined Rev. 11. "ISRAEL ... his beauty shall be like the OLIVE TREE" (Hos. 14:6). "The Eternal called thy name, A green OLIVE TREE... house of ISRAEL and ... house of JUDAH" (Jer. 11:16; see also Zechariah 4:3,11-14 and Romans 11). Isaiah 61:3 also mentions these "TREES of RIGHTEOUSNESS." 
Turning the Other Cheek -- Not good: "For you tolerate it, if a man orders you around, takes what is yours, puts on airs of superiority or slaps you on the face" (2 Cor. 11:20). "Like a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked" (Pr. 25:26). David slew Goliath (1 Sam. 17). Yet very good: "Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also (government official's right -- John 18:22-23; Acts 23:2-3). And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also (creditor with legal right -- Ex. 22:25-27). And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain (government soldiers and couriers had the right -- Luke 23:26). Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away" (beggars' rights in seventh year release -- Deut. 15:1-9) (Matt. 5:38-42).  By being kind to your enemy, you heap coals of fire (shame) on his head (Pr. 25:22; Rom. 12:20). "For Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps" (1 Pet. 2:21). "As a sheep before his shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth" (Isa. 53:7). "Why do you not rather take wrong? Why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded" (1 Cor. 6:7). "Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense" (Pr. 19:11). It depends on whether you're dealing with a LEGITIMATE RIGHT or just an EVIL BULLY.
• Tammuz -- How do we know Tammuz is the same person as Mizraim? Who is "My brother Timmy" (Chariots of Fire)?
1. Ta-Miz (Tammuz) or Da-Miz (Dumuzi) is composed of two words. "Miz" which is short for Mizraim; and "Ta" or "Da" which is the Egyptian equivalent of "Theos" of the Greek or "Deus" of the Latin. It is a verb meaning "to give." Thammuz is the Hebrew name of Adonis, or Osiris, or Menes.
2."Osiris (Mizraim) ... was killed by Typhon (Shem) his brother ... who ... divided the body into twenty-six parts ... Isis... wife of Osiris, avenged the murder ... having slain Typhon (Shem) ... became queen of Egypt ... found all except one part of the body of Osiris ... and gave them to the priests throughout all Egypt to be worshipped." (p.59, Eusebius, Prep. For Gospel) Another account reads: "Set (Shem), the brother of Osiris (Mizraim), rebelled against him and cut his body in pieces" (Rawlinson's Egypt and Babylon). A third account reads, "When the false prophet named Thammuz preached to a certain king that he should WORSHIP the seven STARS and the twelve SIGNS of the ZODIAC, that king ordered him to be put to a terrible death ... And hence arose the custom every year, on the first day of the month Thammuz, to mourn and to weep for Thammuz" (Maimonides, More Nevochim, p. 426). Therefore Tammuz is Osiris (Mizraim).
3. Notice parallel accounts: Just as Typhon overcame Osiris "NOT BY FORCE OR OPEN WAR" (Wilkinson's Egyptians 4:330-332), so also Manetho wrote, "There was a king of ours whose name was Timaus (Thammuz -- Cumberland's Sanchoniathon, p. 359-360; Theta and tau are letters easily exchanged in Greek.). Under him it came to pass ... men ... our country ... with ease subdued ... YET WITHOUT OUR HAZARDING A BATTLE WITH THEM. So when they had gotten those who governed us (Tammuz) under their power, they afterwards burned down our cities and demolished the temples of the (false) gods (cp. Num. 33:52; Deut. 7:5, 25-26), and used all the inhabitants in a most barbarous manner, nay, some they slew and led their children and wives into slavery. At length they made one of themselves king, whose name was Salatis (or Saites or Shem -- first king of 15th Dynasty) (Manetho, from Josephus, Contr. Apion 1:14-15)

4. Ham was also called Thammuz. This is not unusual. Ham and Phut were both called Belus as a title (Praep. Evang. 9:17 p.419). Wilkinson says that the different gods "take eachother's characters and attribues" (pp.9-10, Egyptians). Eusebius well says, "It must be confessed the ancient writers have very much confounded these ancient names with one another." In addition to titles of office used successively, this may be due partly to the custom among the ancients of speaking of all the direct descendants of an important person as his SONS. Also, the word BROTHER was anciently used to describe all parallel branches of a family. For instance Typhon (Shem) was called the BROTHER of Osiris (Nimrod) (Lempriere).  
• Thoth -- How do we know Thoth and Cush are the same person?
1. Hyginnus says, "for many ages men lived ... all speaking one language. But after Mercury interpreted (divided) the speeches of men ... the same individual distributed the nations. Then discord began" (Fab 143 p.114). We know Cush created "CHAOS" at the Tower of Babel (Gen. 10:8-10 & 11:9), hence his name came to mean "CHAOS". Janus, father of the gods, says, "the ancients called me CHAOS" (Ovid Fasti 1:104). "Bel (Cush) is CHAOTIC" (Jer. 1:2). But who was Mercury? "Tautus was called Hermes" (Mercury) -- Sanchoniathon. "Hermes" actually means "son of Ham" -- Cush. On the reverse of an Etruscan medal of Janus a club is shown, and the name of the club in Chaldee is derived from the word which signifies to 'break in pieces" or "scatter abroad" (Hislop, p. 27 note) implying Janus was the cause of the human race being scattered abroad.
2. Humboldt says, "Woden of the Chiapenese (Mexicans) was the GRANDSON of that illustrious old man, who at the time of the great Deluge in which the greater part of the human race perished, was saved on a raft together with his family. Wodan cooperated in the construction of the great edifice which had been undertaken by men to reach the skies; the execution of this rash project was interrupted; each family received from that time a different language; and the great spirit Teotl ordered Wodan to go and people the country of Anahuac (Mexico)." (Humboldt Mex. Res. 1:320 p.134). Cush was Wodan who was ringleader in building the Tower of Babel. Hermes ("son of Ham" --Cush) in Greece was worshipped as Odin in Scandinavia; and Woden in Mexico (Buddha in Tamul is Poden; P & W are identical in Sanscrit). In Mexico, human sacrifices were offered to a god with negro features called Wodan (Prescott's Conquest of Mexico 3:6, p.168). Woden's Day in Germany is Buddha's Day (Boodwar) in China or Mercury's Day (Mercredi) in France. Buddha's triratna is Mercury's caduceus. Tacitus says Woden was Mercury (Germ. 9) The star Mercury is called "Buddha" by the Hindus (Asiat. Res. 1:162). The mother of Mercury was Maia (Lempriere Mercury) and this was also Buddha's mother's name. Bel was called "All-Wise" (Rawl. Herod. 1:599-600) just as Buddha means "All-Wise". Buddha had a wide nose, thick lips and wooly hair. He was a negro called Cush (Gen. 10:6-8). "Hermes or Thoth (was) an Ethiopian" (Cushite) (Diod. Sic.). Hermes was called Tautus or Thoth in Egypt (Philo's intro to Caesarea's Praep.); Mercury in Rome; Gothic Tuisto or Teut in Germany (Lucan Pharsal. 1:444-6); and "Teutates" by the Gauls (Lactant. Instit. 1:21); "Tautus was called Hermes" (Mercury) -- Sanchoniathon. Herodotus refers to the mummification of ibises, Thoth's sacred bird, in Hermopolis, the city of Hermes (2:66).
• Typhon -- How do we know Shem was Typhon?
1. "Osiris (Mizraim)... was killed by Typhon (Shem) his brother ... who ... divided the body into twenty-six parts ... Isis ... wife of Osiris, avenged the murder ... having slain Typhon (Shem) ... became queen of Egypt ... found all except one part of the body of Osiris ... and gave them to the priests throughout all Egypt to be worshipped." (p.59, Eusebius, Prep. For Gospel)
2. The Sibylline Oracles speak of Cronus, Japetus and Titan as the three sons of Noah (Cory, p.52). Also, the principal Titans are said to be "Saturn" (Ham) "Japetus" and "Typheus" (Lempriere, art. Titanes).
3. Typho was called Seth (Epiphanius, Adv. Haeres., book 3). Plutarch (de Isid. et Osir. p.367, 371 & 376) gives to Typhon the titles of "Seth" and "Smy", and the latter in Greek would be "Smu" which is evidently the same as "Semu" (Wilkinson's Egyptians 3:138). Shem was also known as "Sheth" (Num. 24:17). The first king of the 15th Dynasty was Saites. The Hyksos fortified a town called Avaris (aka Typhonius) located in the Nomus Saites (Josephus) or Nomus Sethroites (Africanus) (Against Apion 1:14) where Seth-Typhon was worshipped. Both Seth and Shem are synonymous and mean "the appointed one" (p.65, Hislop).
4. Sydyc (Melchizedek -- p. 47. Sanchoniathon) lived at the same time period as Shem. When Typhon was subsequently conquered, he fled away and begat Hierosolymus and Judaeus (Plutarch De Iside, S. 31; Cumberland's Sanchoniathon, p.108). "Adonizedek king of Jerusalem, the same was Shem" (Jasher 16:11).

5. Manetho says Menes (Osiris) was killed by a Hippopotamus (Cory, p. 94). "At Hermopolis they point out a statue of Typhon in the form of an hippopotamus" (Plutarch Isis & Osiris, 50:1), so just substitute Typhon (Shem) for the hippo and there is no contradiction.

• Unicorn -- "a wild ox" (Num. 24:8). The Septuagint has unicorn for Reem. The Vulgate has rhinoceros for Reem. Arabs call a large species of elk Reem.
• Ursa Major -- "Can you guide the Great Bear (Aysh) and her cubs?" (Job 38:32). The ancient Jewish commentators on the book of Job say that Ash is the seven stars of the Great Bear. But the Arabs still call this constellation Al Naish or Annaish, the assembled together, as sheep in a fold. In the three stars miscalled the tail, where we find the name Benetnaish, there is also Mizar a guarded or enclosed place. Another name is Alioth, the ewe or she-goat, near which is the star Al Cor, the lamb, in Arabic also Seya, the lamb. Other names in this constellation , El Acola, also is a fold. Phacad is a watched or guarded place. Dubhe in Hebrew is a she-bear. But in Arabic Dubah is cattle, and in Hebrew Daber is a fold. In the Egyptian planisphere there is no figure of a bear. The Persian and Indian spheres have no picture of a bear either, but instead have three maidens, no doubt the three daughters of Ash. The flock is the Lord's church
• 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: eating pork, ham, bacon, clams, crabs, shrimp, fat or blood; masturbating for men and refusing to practice Niddah (separation & bathing after menstruation every 28 days) for women. Even petting dogs. Shaking hands. Getting married to an unconverted woman (no Niddah).
• Usury -- "If thou lend money to any of MY PEOPLE that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an USURER, neither shalt thou lay upon him USURY" (Ex. 22:25). "Take thou no USURY of him, or INCREASE: but fear thy God; that thy BROTHER (torah-keeper -- Mark 3:35) may live with thee" (Lev. 25:36). "Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? ... He that putteth not out his money to USURY" (Ps. 15:1-5). Ezekiel 18:13 speaks of one who "Hath given forth upon USURY, and hath taken INCREASE: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him." Deuteronomy 23:19 says, "Thou shalt not lend upon USURY to thy BROTHER (torah-keeper -- Mark 3:35); USURY of money, USURY of victuals, USURY of any thing that is lent upon USURY." Even 1% INTEREST is forbidden (Neh. 5:7-11)."The BORROWER is servant to the lender" (Pr. 22:7). "He that by USURY and UNJUST GAIN increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor" (Pr. 28:8). "Unto a STRANGER (Heb. "nokri" -- wicked enemy nation who disobeys the torah) thou mayest lend upon USURY; but unto thy BROTHER (torah-keeper -- Mark 3:35) thou shalt not lend upon USURY: that the Lord thy God may bless thee" (Deut. 23:20). "Also thou shalt NOT OPPRESS a STRANGER (Heb. "ger" -- sojourner in Israel who obeys the torah): for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt" (Ex. 23:9). "Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the STRANGER (no USURY for torah-keeper), as for one of your own country (no USURY for torah-keeper): for I am the Lord your God" (Lev. 24:22) "And if thy BROTHER be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a STRANGER, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. Take thou no USURY of him, or INCREASE: but fear thy God; that thy BROTHER (torah-keeper -- Mark 3:35) may live with thee. Thou shalt not give him thy money upon USURY, nor lend him thy victuals for INCREASE" (Lev. 25:35-37). But Christians quote Matthew 25:27 to justify USURY. The way it should be understood, the servant says, "I know you're a covetous crook, reaping the harvest of others. So I played it safe and hid your money." The way it should be understood, his master says, "Since that is what you believe, why didn't you put my money in the bank and obtain more DISHONEST GAIN for me through INTEREST?" Far from justifying usury, this parable actually condemns it (cp. Luke 19:11-27). The Parables of the Talents doesn't reverse the Old Testament condemnation of interest. While the master chastises the lazy servant for burying his talent, and unfavourably compares this with putting the money out at interest, he judges the servant ‘by his own words’. If the servant had truly believed that his master was a ‘hard man’, then he should have put the money out at interest, since this is what would be expected. Receiving interest is ‘reaping where one has not sown’ – it is what hard men do (Luke 19:22, 23). There is a clear distinction between risking money actively in a business venture and putting it on deposit at interest – reaping where one has not sown.

• Vineyard -- Church that should bear fruit (Luke 20:9-16); house of Israel (Isa. 5:7)
• Veil -- A veil was the distinguishing mark of a married woman (Gen. 24:65). Thus Abimelech reproved Sarah for going without a veil (pretending to be Abraham's sister) by saying, "I have given thy BROTHER one thousand pieces of silver, Behold it is to (buy) thee a COVERING OF THE EYES (a veil to protect the face from wanton lust), unto all that are with thee and with all other: thus she was reproved" (Gen. 20:16). The veil was so she should not desire to be looked at by any other, or to look at any other man. But there is no rigid requirement that this verse refer to a veil since Jacob said of Esau, “I will appease him,” (Gen. 32:20) lit. “COVER HIS FACE” without reference to any veil. And Job 9:24 says, “he COVERETH THE FACES of the judges” (using money not a veil); and 1 Samuel 12:3 says, “of whose hand have I taken a ransom to BLIND MINE EYES therewith”(using money not a veil).
• Vine -- Children of Israel (Ps. 80:8; Hos. 10:1); men of Judah - vine of Sorek (Isa. 5:1-7; Jer. 2:21); Jesus - the true vine (John 15:1)
• Venom -- False criticism (Rom. 3:13); cursing and bitterness under their lips (Ps. 140:3); bitter words (Ps. 64:3-8).
• Voting -- "Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you" (Deut. 1:13). Josephus adds that Jethro advised him to choose such persons as the whole multitude have tried and do approve of.

• Wedding -- seven days (Judges 14:2,10,12; Gen. 29:27-28).
• Wedding Garment -- Tallit (prayer shawl) (Matt. 22:12)
• Wine -- blood/covenant / doctrines (Luke 5:37); Christ's blood
• Walk with God -- Noah and Enoch "walked with God" (Gen. 5:24; 6:9). Genesis 17:1 says almost the same thing: "walk before me" (Abram). "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3)
• Was -- "the earth WAS without form and void" should be "the earth BECAME without form and void" (Gen. 1:2) just as Lot's wife "BECAME a pillar of salt" (Gen. 19:26)
• White linen -- Victory / righteousness of saints (Revelation 19:8; 3:5; 7:14; Dan. 11:35)
• Wolf -- Enemy of sheep (Matthew 7:15)
• 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).
• Wings -- Speed-Protection-Deliverance (Deut. 28:49, Matt. 23:37); extremities of land (Job 37:3; 38:13; Isa. 11:12) as E. & W. Roman Empire (Rev. 12:14)
• Water (Living) -- Holy Spirit / Everlasting Life (John 7:39; 4:14, Revelation 22:17, Ephesians 5:26)
• Waters -- Inhabited area; "peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues" (Revelation 17:15). "Raging of the sea" is "madness of the people" (Ps. 8:1-3)
• White -- righteousness (Revelation 3:4-5; 7:14; 19:14; Dan. 11:35)
• Woman, Pure -- True Church (Jeremiah 6:2; Isa. 62:5; 2 Corinthians 11:2, Ephesians 5:23-27; Rev. 19:7-8) "I may present you as a chaste VIRGIN to Christ" (2 Cor. 11:2).
• Woman, Corrupt -- Apostate Church (Judges 2:17; Ezekiel 16:15-58; 23:2-21; Hosea 2:5; 3:1; Revelation 14:4; Rev. 17:1-7). A church cannot also be a 501(c)3 government corporation. You cannot serve two masters. "Throughout the ages men have suffered death rather than subordinate their allegiance to God to the authority of the State." (U.S. Supreme Court in Girouard v. U.S., 328 US 61 (1946)).
• Washing his garments in wine -- Bloody slaughter of foes (Gen. 49:11; Isa. 63:3; Rev. 19:11-15)
• 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),
• Way -- "The narrow way" (Matt. 7:13-14) is spoken of as "the way of the Lord" (Gen. 18:19), "the way" (Ex. 32:8), "the good and right way" (1 Sam. 12:23), "His way" (Ps. 25:9), "the way of wisdom" (Pr. 4:11), "the way of righteousness" (Pr. 8:20) "the way of life" (Pr. 10:17), "the way of holiness" (Isa. 35:8), , "the good way" (Jer. 6:16), "the way of truth" (2 Pet. 2:2) and "the right way" (2 Pet. 2:15). Christ is that "Way" (John 14:6). You must deny yourself (Luke 9:23), take delight in God's law (Ps. 1:2) and do God's will (Matt. 7:21)
• 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" (Rev. 18:23) -- 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). VACCINES should be considered drugs also (Rev. 18:23). First you control the drug, then the drug controls you. Then it takes your soul. Captopril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor drug that is used to treat high blood pressure. Its main compound is derived from a species of PIT VIPER found in Brazil. Prialt is derived from the VENOM of CONE SNAILS and is used by some of the estimated 22 million adults in the US who suffer from severe and chronic pain. Another drug class mentioned is Byetta, which lowers blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes. Its main ingredient, extendin-4, is found in the saliva of the Gila monster, a large LIZARD species native to the southwestern US and northwestern Mexico. Insulin was the first ever SNAKE VENOM-based peptide drug to be developed. Venom-based drugs like Integrilin, which is made from the VENOM of the pygmy RATTLESNAKE, has been used to treat COVID blood clots.
• White horse -- Protestant reformers all gathered together at the WHITEHORSE INN in Cambridge from 1517 to 1525 to discuss Luther's writings (Rev. 11) and generate the Protestant Reformation. If these events have a PARALLEL in the end time, then this LOCATION is where Christian reformers should gather together again to help generate another better Protestant Reformation at our Lord's second coming. Even further back in British history, Celtic Christians gathered together in WHITEHORN Scotland, north of England, by 697 A.D., because of Roman Catholic persecution (Rev. 7). Again, if this event has a PARALLEL in the end time, then persecuted Christians must gather together in WHITEHORSE Yukon, north of British Columbia, because of religious persecution which will happen soon. Even further back in 449 AD, when Hengist and Horsa claimed the Isle of Thanet, they planted the Saxon banner of a WHITE HORSE. WHITEHORSE has always been a place of safety. "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done, is that which shall be done" (Eccl. 1:9). God says, "I change not" (Mal. 3:6). He is "the same yesterday, today and forever" (Heb. 13:8). Just as scholars ran from the Roman capitol, Constantinople, to WHITEHORSE Cambridge in 1453, so also Christians must run from the American capitol, Washington DC, to Whitehorse Yukon today (Rev. 10). In Revelation 12:6, "the prepared" is "Ha KUN" and "prepared place" is "YAD KUN." See Strong's Hebrew #3027 and #3559. If the Book of Revelation was originally written in Hebrew, then "PLACE PREPARED" may have actually sounded alot like the English name "YUKON". "When ye therefore, shall see the OBAMA-nation of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place...flee into the (YUKON) mountains" (Matt. 24:15-16). Obama stood at the Wailing Wall on July 2008. Obama stood in the White House on Jan 20 2009. Obama stood in the Church of the Nativity on 22 Mar 2013. Will Obama stand inside the Holy of Holies [inside the Dome of the Rock] at some point in the future? "For then (4 Jan 2024) shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time ... And except those days shall be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (alive)" (Matt. 24:22). "Come out of her (United States), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Rev. 18:4). Many Americans sense the DANGER and are quickly FLEEING out of the United States. Music “shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman ... shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee” (Rev. 18:22-23). This sounds like an EMP. Revelation 19:11-14 says, "And I saw heaven opened (Canadian citizenship granted) and, behold, a WHITE HORSE (Yukon) ... And the armies that were in heaven (Canada) followed him upon WHITE HORSES (in Yukon), clothed in fine linen, white (snowy) and clean" (unpolluted). "I have set before thee an open DOOR (a Canadian Custom's door), and no man can shut it ... hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown" (Rev. 3:8-11). "Because thou hast kept my word patiently, I (Jesus Christ) also will KEEP thee from the hour of temptation (15 degrees of US flag in Rev. 18), which shall come upon the whole world" (Rev. 3:10). Who is speaking? Our Lord who is sitting on a WHITE HORSE (Rev. 19:11) (Sagittarius) and promising us PROTECTION. WHITEHORSE Yukon must therefore be somehow PROTECTED. One narrow two-lane highway in and out. Thick wilderness forests all around. Gas stations few and far between on the Alaska Highway. Places to fish and hunt plentiful. Far from other population centers. Protected from an EMP blast in mid-America (Rev. 18)? "Let him who is on the housetop (Yukon) not come down (to the United States)" (Matt. 24:17). Canadian banks are more stable and safer than American banks since they avoided taxpayer-funded bailouts. Four Canadian banks are listed on top ten strongest in the world on a Bloomberg Markets magazine ranking. Not so with American banks. Americans are in a "lukewarm" (Andromeda) climate while those in WHITEHORSE Yukon are "cold or hot" (Sagittarius) (Rev. 3:15-16). WHITE HORSE can alternaterly mean Roman false counterfeit religion (Matt. 24:5) or Israel's true religion (Rev. 19:11); Sinlessness (Rev. 7:14); Victory (Rev. 6:1-2)

•X-Mas -- The winter solstice festival in honour of the new birth of the young SUN when at midnight they entered the subterranean sanctuary, whence the priest presently came forth crying: "The virgin hath brought forth; the light is about to begin to grow again." This ceremony took place each year on the 25th of December, the day of the Natalis Solis Invicti, in the oriental worship of the SUN. Called the Festival of Mithra in Persia; or "the "Awakening of Melquarth" at Tyre; or Saturnalia at Rome;

•Yeshua -- Jesus Christ, our King and High Priest. How a King? "Our Lord sprang out of Judah" (Heb. 7:14). He is "the Lion of the tribe of Judah" (Rev. 5:5). How a High Priest? John the Baptist's father was the priest Zecharias, of the course of Abias, or Abijah, the eighth course of the LEVITE PRIESTHOOD (1 Chr. 24:10; Luke 1:5); John the Baptist's mother was "of the daughters of AARON, and her name was Elisabeth" (Luke 1:5). Elisabeth was also COUSIN to the virgin Mary (Luke 1:36). Therefore the two families had intermarried -- Levi and Judah -- the House of DAVID with the House of AARON. "But Christ being come an HIGH PRIEST of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us" (Heb. 9:11-12). This and other related Scriptures imply AARONIC descent of Christ. The change that occurred was the combining of Kingship with Priesthood. They should no longer be separate in the new "Righteous King" (Melchizedek). "He is our peace, who hath made both one (Israel and Judah), and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us. Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of TWAIN ONE new man, so making peace" (Eph. 2:14-15). 

• Zion -- City of David (1 Chr. 11:5); Jerusalem (Ps. 147:12); heavenly Jerusalem (Heb. 12:22-24)
• Zoroaster -- (from Schur -- to contemplate & aster -- star) Also called Zerdusht. There were at least two great men by that name. The first was a king and an astronomer, not long after the deluge, who is said to have originated fire worship. The second, contemporary with the prophet Daniel, and supposed to have been one of his disciples, is said to have restored the ancient religion of the Magi, perhaps that patriarchal faith which had preceded the time of the first Zoroaster, and from which the Magi who hailed the new-born Savior may have learned to expect and to adore Him. Zoroaster predicted to the Magi (chiefs of Persia) the future appearance of a star announcing the birth of a mysterious child, the Almighty Word which created the heavens, whom he commanded them to adore. So affirms Abulfaragius, a well-known Arabian writer -- Hyde de Vet. Rel. Pers.
• Zodiac -- Mazzaroth (Job 38:32) or Mazaloth (2 Ki. 23:5) -- the twelve signs. Instead of deriving "zodiac" from Zao "to live" because the zodiac is full of living creatures, why not derive the word from the primitive root Zoad "way, going on by steps" (2 Sam. 6:14; Hab. 3:12; Ps. 68:7). "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way" (Ps. 37:23). The balance in Libra is not a living creature, nor the vase for Aquarius, nor the bow for Sagittarius. The zodiac teaches the way of salvation in twelve steps: a Virgin (Virgo pregnant with sun) would give birth to a son of God pictured by the actual sun as it passed through her body. Divine scales of justice (sun in Libra) would require "bruising his heel" on the cross (Scorpio's death sting is orange swelling sore) to pay for the sins of humanity. But the Savior bruises Sorpio's head and conquers death (Sagittarius' face shining like the sun) and give life to his followers (a living fish) by his sacrifice (Capricorn goat a burnt sacrifice) and let them drink the golden living waters of the Holy Spirit (Aquarius pouring out the sun) which then breaks the bands of sin (sun cutting Pisces' bands) because the Lamb was wounded for our transgression (sun wound in Aries' side). He will return (Taurus with golden sun crown on his head), this dual-natured King with golden words (Gemini), and shelter his people (sun in Cancer) from the day of Wrath when this "Lion of the tribe of Judah" will destroy that old serpent the Devil (Leo pouncing on Hydra). The zodiac is also symbolic of many things including a "winepress" where constellations are stomping solar grapes as they circle holding red radius lines for stability (Rev. 14:19). The "small (Ursa and Canis Minor) and great (Ursa and Canis Major), rich (Cassiopeia) and poor (Ophiuchus; Virgo), free and bond" (Pisces; Andromeda) (Rev. 13:16) "birds flying overhead (Cygnus, Lyra, Aquila, Corvus)... eat the flesh of kings (Cepheus) and captains (Perseus) and mighty men (Hercules; Orion) and horses and riders (Pegasus; Centaurus; Sagittarius) ... all men (Auriga, Gemini, Aquarius), both free and bond, both small and great" (Rev. 19:18).
