I am in siege of Tyre. The book of Ezekiel chapter twenty nine verses 18 and 19:
"Son of man, Nebuchadnez'zar king of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre; every head was made bald and every shoulder was rubbed bare; yet neither he nor his army got anything from Tyre to pay for the labor that he had performed against it.
Therefore thus says
the Lord God: Behold, I
will give the land
An odd heading; is it not, for me to say' "That I am in siege of Tyre," and to quote what was said regarding a king of Babylon? But then I am a mystery, a mystery in the minds of the sons of man. And as I speak on this heading I am walking a tightrope.
For while it is certain that none of the peoples, historians, nor theologians, have understood what it is that the Lord is revealing here, I am plotting down words to reveal the mystery spoken of the Lord my God.
Or at least so it may seem, for while I may be clarifying some things I am also keeping that which is to be kept. I in fact will be making these and other passages of the Scriptures even more confusing to the sons of men than they already are.
Chapters 26 and 27 as well as 28 of the book of Ezekiel speaks of you, of the men of this 21st century, of all of you, but who among mankind has an eye for understanding? And so the word will be assayed upon you.
I, for example have never even been in the Middle East, nor is this day that city of Tyre on the shores of the Mediterranean under siege. How therefore do I say to have such a city under siege, and am likening myself to king Nebuchadnez'zar -- if not by allegory from the word of God, and for the purpose of showing what is in a word to lend wisdom to the wise, and as such folly to the unwise?
Allow me to make a proposition; Shall we, you and I, speak on life, on the life of every man woman and child? And yes let us speak on it. But I am not one to disregard the commandments of the Lord my Father, wherefore I, as we, will only consume such meat that cloves the foot.
In speaking of life therefore we shall hardly speak of the seventy years, or even the hundred of years that a person may live on this earth, but in speaking of life we must speak of all of life, of all the many trillions of centuries that each one of the children of the human race will have to pass through; since the Lord made us in His own image, meaning also that we are to endure into forever.
If by example we are to speak of the sea, the whole great ocean, shall we take a table-spoon of it, and liken it to the sea? That table-spoon of it; as one should realize, is but a very minute part of it. Equally so our days upon this earth, is but a forthcoming, a very minute part of the span of life that is to be ours.
Why then O you historians, and you theologians are you at all times in defining the Scriptures looking no further than your nose is long? Are you not virtually blind in doing so? And how as such, being blind and all; are you to behold the whole of the ocean, with no more than a table-spoon of it to your beholding?
You are a naughty people, you are consuming meats that are not to be consumed, the meat you are consuming is of such animals that do not split the hoofs. They do not divide, you are not looking both ways, to consider the one as well as the other. You are not considering this life in the light of the life that is to come. Nor are you chewing the cud.
You think that by coming forth from the womb, and being tapped on the behind, that such is life and nothing more, that it ends right there? Have you never seen a child suckle the breast? Or are you so ignorant not to realize that God made the two breasts upon a woman for a very good purpose?
And have you any inkling as to what it means to suckle the breast, and how not only as a child a man suckles the breast, but even in manhood he rejoices at the breasts, fondling them, and placing his mouth upon them; he is as were he in heaven joyfully entertaining himself upon that by which life giving sustenance came into him.
The breast after-all has this meaning, that it furnishes man with the milk of understanding. It has this meaning to be knowledge and apprehension.
That once being taught in the milk of it, flowing forth from within, being wholesome, he furthers himself with solid food, and never at all forgets the breast, even as at all times they look so beautiful, and so inviting, and delicious to behold, and caress upon.
God indeed gave the woman these beautiful delicious breasts for a very good reason, and not only for the delight of man, but for knowledge - as its purpose and nature dictates.
For so again once a good and wholesome knowledge has come into him, he rejoices at it, like those weaned from the breast and having come to maturity always rejoice at the breast, those lovely breasts placed upon himself, upon his own flesh.
And what is the purpose, or the token that there are two breasts upon our bodies, not just one but two very lovely rounded breasts to delight upon?
Do not stick to just one knowledge, but consider both sides, just like the meat that we are to consume must have the foot cloven, to consider not just this life, the days of this earth, but consider the days to come as well, and these even more than just this day.
Drink therefore from both of her breasts, and caress yourself upon the both of them, and be infatuated by them, since these were made for life, and are life.
I therefore admonish you my reader to also drink from my breast, for that which proceeds from me comes from within, it is wholesome, and not anything from a bottle in which impurities may be mixed as your theologians are good at. And for wisdom; my breasts are twain.
Shall we now return to the quotation that we started with, and my image that was represented in Nebuchadnez'zar? It serves little purpose for me to beat around the bush, hiding myself, wherefore I might as well put it plainly; how Nebuchadnez'zar was that table-spoon of ocean water, with me the rest of that whole ocean.
And O what a daring person I am to call myself a king, even an everlasting king. But no, I was not the one to set a crown upon my head, but the Lord did, as Enoch prophesied in electing me of His very own Son.
And as the prophet Baruch did in calling me not a, but "The" Star of Gentiles. And Daniel goes as far as to call me a prince of the very covenant of God, a covenant for the redemption of all mankind.
Who therefore am I to deny it when the Almighty One revealed all these things to me, and taught me so many secrets much of which I cannot pronounce. I know very well that royal blood ran through my veins from the very day that the Lord formed me in the womb, and she my mother in the flesh is blessed above many.
And now that we have taken step number one, let us add this much to that first step how I came to be called a king of Babylon, after which I shall insert the words which I spoke so long ago, that thereafter we can go into more detail regarding other matters.
The term Egypt has a twofold meaning, it refers to the land of Egypt as you see it today, or as it was, and it refers to the whole of the world, wherefore at times I denoted that alternate meaning by saying; "The greater Egypt."
The term Babylon then has likewise a twofold meaning, it can mean Babylon, the city or country as it was, with its second meaning also as the world in its whole. But there is this difference between Egypt and Babylon in the world as a whole.
Egypt, the greater Egypt, is simply the whole of the world with the exception of Israel, or as one might say, the world of Gentiles. Babylon on the other hand denotes wickedness, wherefore in saying Babylon, or the greater Babylon, one refers to the world in its wickedness.
I therefore as a king of Babylon, am in fact a king of the wicked. Israel as the sons of God are herein excluded, having David as a king over them. This concludes that there are two kingdoms each having its own king, the sons of God with David at their head, and the whole of the Gentile nations with a Lion as their head.
A lion indeed, since a lion is part of the animal world and he is king of all the beasts. Quite correctly therefore it is most fitting that those men which are wicked acting like they are as yet like the beasts should have a beast, namely the Lion for a king unto them.
It is the pride of men that causes them to be like the beast, even as that was made crystal clear by that Nebuchadnez'zar of old, who for his pride was factually reduced to a beast.
Remember my people, and you that are reading my essays, that everything said or done in the Scriptures has a purpose, a very real purpose, all of them being for education. And so, yes, I am a Lion, a king of beasts, a king of Babylon, king of the wicked, wherefore also I speak to them as such, and am reproving them for that wickedness of theirs.
Not that I am wicked, or at least having come to maturity, with this aim, and notation, that my people may follow my lead, and my example unto them.
For I in all respects am a part of Israel, being brought up in her very heights, I, like so much of Israel, and some of the Gentiles, am a son of God, for which cause David, king of Israel, is also my king, and I his subject.
For did not the Lord say to man that he was to rule all the beasts of the earth, and to subdue them? While then David is man, and I a Lion, I am subjugated by Him. And this will become crystal clear in a day as yet to come. And while I am also as Daniel said; "An anointed one, a prince," I am twofold like so much else is twofold.
Now it is time to take ourselves to step number two, inserting for you my words of long ago.
The Lord spoke by Ezekiel regarding Tyre how well He created her, or rather how well she accommodated herself in gathering wealth and beauty to herself, being the center or port of trade for many goods from and to many nations.
Then further on the Lord judges Tyre, giving her to know her ruin, because Tyre in her wealth and in her beauty that she gathered with her wisdom and cunning came to say that "She was perfect in beauty."
She became proud in her heart and said; "I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods in the midst of many people, or as it reads, in the heart of the seas."
Accordingly, the Lord is casting down her pride, for while she is but a man she considers herself so all wise as were she a god, or gods. As then Tyre may be wiser than Daniel in gathering temporal wealth, Daniel is wiser to gather for himself an everlasting wealth.
As thus Tyre is judged, let us ask just "who" Tyre is, or to what or to whom she bears allegory. And let us also ask who or what Egypt is in allegory, and its Pharaoh. And also who Nebuchadnez'zar was and to whom he bore allegory so that I might explain how and in what way I have yet some years left in my siege against Tyre.
Egypt, is the land of Egypt its nation, and Egypt is also the world as a whole in its many nations, as it may also be said, Egypt, and the greater Egypt, or Egypt and the world.
Tyre then, as that city by the seashore, can also be seen as the world, but in this context; as the heart of the sea, translated as the heart of the people.
As then the heart is the pump, so it is the pump of the people, the mechanism or machinery that keeps the blood flowing, the industrial center, and the commerce.
And so with "Tyre" it comes to mean; the industrious people, all those which built and gather wealth, who have taken this world for their home and who keep the economy going, or as to say; to keep the blood flowing. Among these therefore we can rank the wise and the cunning, as also the princes and leaders of the people.
Tyre thus is the world as a whole in that context. For are it not these who say "that there is no God," and/or "that they are alone," boasting of their abominable evolution, and who at all times are correcting God in all His word as if they were the wiser.
As then it states, "Because your heart is proud, and you have said, "I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas." This conveys how these many men look at the world as if the course thereof is in their hands and that they are the wisdom and the rulers thereof.
But their business dealings, ill as they were, have gotten them into trouble as the Lord says; "Your rowers have brought you out into the high seas", and "the east wind has wrecked you in the heart of the seas."
God made her (her, that is to say, the pride of men), like the signet of perfection, full of wisdom, as He says, on the day when He created her (or them). "With an anointed guardian Cherub I placed you", so the Lord speaks, and; "that she was blameless in her ways from the day she was created."
But she did not remain so, for iniquity came into her, as the Lord said; "Till iniquity was found in you, in the abundance of your trade you became filled with violence, so you sinned."
Tyre, that is, the elite of men, or the pride of men corrupted their wisdom with the folly of greed, and pride entered into them for their beauty, falling in love with their splendor rather than with truth and humility. Therefore the Lord says; "I will cast you to the ground," and; "So I cast you as a profane thing from the Mountain of God, and the Cherub drove you out".
It was to this end that the Lord called for Nebuchadnez'zar and his army to cast down and humble Tyre - as a token and a lesson to all the world of men.
And in particular these men as we outlined in the heart, the pump of the seas, that pride is an abominable thing, and that it cannot but destroy them that are stained with it, and that their wealth by all their wisdom is a fleeting thing.
Recall how the Lord brought plagues upon Egypt after which He delivered His people Israel? It was a token of what is again to happen on a greater scale, the whole of the world, as the greater Egypt.
For even so the affairs with Nebuchadnezzar in its time serves as a token in what will come to pass on a greater scale, like I said; the chapters of Ezekiel from 26 to 32 pertain equally to those living in the twenty first century.
And so I have laid siege against Tyre - that is, against that world of men these last years in all that I have said and put into writing for them to hear, putting them to reprove and destroying their wisdom. Only, they have ignored me, I have not as yet overcome their city.
My siege is against them, but they are a well-fortified city to overcome. And accordingly my siege is to continue until the day that I shall overcome them and take all their spoils unto me.
Nebuchadnez'zar now in his seventh year of siege did not know how these inhabitants of Tyre would leave him without spoils, in that by the time he took the city they had depleted it from its valuables, shipping it off and casting it into the sea.
And so they deprived Nebuchadnez'zar of his spoils, and of the wages for his men, his army, which he for a long thirteen years held the city under siege before it was taken.
I on the other hand, by the pre-figuration shown, know before hand that they are to deprive me of wages, as also that I have yet years left in my siege against them. For the thing that is shown here in that city of Tyre with Nebuchadnez'zar humbling her, and how he obtained no spoils, but received Egypt as the price of his wages for his labors against Tyre, which he did as a servant of God, laboring for Him.
This is figurative for that world of men as in the heart thereof, in and of all ages, and of another king whose labors will be rewarded with the price of the whole world. Because I am left without my reward from the heart of men; the Lord is giving into my hand the world as a possession, the whole of the Gentiles.
As therefore the Lord said; "Behold, I will give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnez'zar king of Babylon, and he shall carry off its wealth, and despoil it and plunder it, and it shall be the wages for his army. I have given him the land of Egypt as his recompense for which he labored because they worked for me, says the Lord God."
So the Lord will give into his hand the whole of the world, and appoint him a prince thereof - even as Nebuchadnez'zar at that time was king of the whole world. And not as to him alone, but to all the sons of the God - as in - "wages for his army."
For just as the sons of God labored for the Lord their God, serving Him and this shall be our reward, that we shall receive the world and all its men, and all its wealth shall be ours from the hand of God.
Here the words end that I spoke so long ago.
Some of the historians now, not very bright creatures, all those that scrutinize the Scriptures; are prone to say, that the Lord God is in error, how these things did not occur, and that it was Alexander the great who subdued Tyre. But like I said, these many that scrutinize the Scriptures are not very bright fellows.
For this is unassailable that all that which is recorded in the Scriptures is very correct and if not already brought to pass, will be brought to pass.
Many things are recorded, and came to be done as a token, and or prelude to what was to follow, the table-spoon of sea-water having been shown is but a token to the whole of the sea.
Tyre was a city on the mainland, with a satellite on a rock a bit offshore in the Mediterranean. Nebuchadnez'zar was send against the mainland city, placing it under siege for thirteen years before it was taken. And all that he did and did not do to that city and its inhabitants have specific meanings in which I do not at this time care to go into.
Alexander the Great then (as a second Nebuchadnez'zar) for his obsession to have a victory against the impossible took that satellite of the city on the rock in the sea, with much labor and much difficulty. These things also have due meanings at which currently I do not care to go into.
Nebuchadnez'zar thus made the token of taking Tyre, of overcoming all the industrious and rich merchants of the earth, taking a long time to complete the same, (symbolically one more year than 12). While the second Nebuchadnez'zar, the one coming after him, in name Alexander, completed the destruction of Tyre, taking away the very heart in the sea.
And O how I speak in riddles, even to spell thirteen in a different way, and to speak of a second Nebuchadnez'zar; for as yet -- if so you will take it -- there is a third Nebuchadnez'zar by whom all will be completed, the whole word of God, in every aspect thereof.
So my dear reader is prophecy, it is further than one's nose is long, and the sea is more than a spoon full.
This sentence alone encompasses a world of wisdom, but I will not give that advantage to the doctors of religion, and for a cause to it behold that which I am speaking under "BLINDNESS," further down in this page.
For the moment now I am going to pass up where Egypt becomes wages for the armies of king Nebuchadnez'zar, to pass on to chapter 30 of the book of Ezekiel, where the Lord said: "Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord God: "Wail, `Alas for the day!' For the day is near, the day of the Lord is near; it will be a day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations.
sword shall come upon
"A day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations." Of what day or time do you think the Lord is speaking when He will devastate the Greater Egypt, the whole of the world, since that is what the term Egypt here refers to?
Whatever that king of Babylon then did to Egypt in his day is but a token of what the real king of Babylon, the enduring king will do to it.
If you are reading my words on a day that is not yet the Sabbath, it is as yet to come, or in progress, but many of these will not be able to read my words since their flesh may already be in the belly of the vultures, or they have died of starvation, or are cut down by the sword, or as men might conclude vaporized by the heat of atomic explosions.
For thus spoke the Lord concerning that Greater Egypt in that day: "Those who support Egypt shall fall, and her proud might shall come down; from Migdol to Syene they shall fall within her by the sword, says the Lord God. And she shall be desolated in the midst of desolated countries and her cities shall be in the midst of cities that are laid waste."
The words; "Her proud might shall come down." And O how these Russians think that they can take on anything, and no less these overbearing Americans as if they are a mighty power. I will laugh at them, that I will do, at their boasting when their boast is made into nothing, and their cities are in ruins.
is then O you proud boasters that you will have no choice but to admit that it
was not of me, not even of a king of Babylon, but like the Lord said; "Then
they will know that I am the Lord,
when I have set fire to
Are you the helpers of the world, you Yankees, as you portray yourselves dictating to all the world? You are not helpers, but helping them from the shore into the crevasse, you are no more than oppressors, oppressing all that are near and far.
it will come like a surprise. I spoke to you for more than half a century,
yet you would not hear me. And so then it will come on a sudden and with
surprise, just like the Lord prophesied that it would saying: "On
that day swift messengers shall go forth from Me to terrify the unsuspecting
Ethiopians; and anguish shall come upon them on the day of
Egypt's doom, translates into the doom of the whole world of Gentiles, and like the Lord said; "Lo, it comes."
And now let us see by whom your demise will come, you that inhabit the earth, and take no account of God, nor of His statutes. Thus spoke the Lord God: "I will put an end to the wealth of Egypt by the hand of Nebuchadnez'zar king of Babylon. He and his people with him, the most terrible of the nations shall be brought in to destroy the land, and hey shall draw their swords against the world and fill the land with the slain."
In page 56 entitled; "Lamb and the Lion," I portrayed two ways in which the inhabitants of the earth will be devastated, in one by a single Person, and secondly by a large army.
I did so in order to confuse the unwise even more than they are already confused. In the above then the Lord speaks of that whole army to unsheathe their swords against the greater Egypt.
Whom then might that army consist of? Do you think that I will enlist you of the world, wicked as you are to serve me in my righteous judgments? No, not likely. I do not want any sissy's, nor anyone that is uneducated. It will, as it reads; rather be the most terrible of the nations, the most fearful ones, the ones that cannot be overcome.
The ones enlisted with me, are in some manner of speaking of your nations, and yet they are foreigners, a race of brave ones not of this world. They are just like me, they hate all that is wicked, nor do these have the fear of anything, but of the Lord their God and my God.
And they are invincible, not a single one of them will fall, and though they handle the sword, not a one will be harmed in any way. Your profits and the wealth you have gathered will vanish from you, "By my hand, so the Lord said, He will deplete all your wealth."
does not the prophecy read further saying: "And
I will dry up the
And you doctors of the Scriptures digging into historical records will as yet say, that none of these things came to pass? No of course not, your eyesight does not pass the length of your noses, how then are you to see what is but a token for what is yet to come?
We are evil men, are we not? Refusing to help you out, and foreigners indeed. And in case you have but an inkling of what "desolation" really is, just wait and see, it will become crystal clear to you, to all of you that lend me but a fake ear, or half an ear. Nor is it only that part which I quoted that will become crystal clear, but every part as proclaimed by Ezekiel.
It is recorded that Egypt shall be uninhabited for forty years, that the Lord will drive out the Egyptians, like it was to Israel to scatter them among the nations. It is recorded by Ezekiel in his twenty ninth chapter verse 11, as it reads: "No foot of man shall pass through it, and no foot of beast shall pass through it; it shall be uninhabited forty years."
The scholars of the Scriptures now have a very difficult time with this, how in their view this never happened, how the king of Babylon did not devastate Egypt to that extend. But like I previously said, these are poor fellows with no knowledge, nor insight, and that they are blind, so blind in fact that anything beyond the length of their noses is unseen.
The part where it states; "for forty years," is in verse 11, if then they were so bright to track back a little to verse 5 of the same chapter, it reveals as to "when" that will come to pass where it reads; "And I will cast you forth into the wilderness, you and all the fish of your streams; you shall fall upon the open field."
That is the first part of the sentence, and now for the second part; "And not be gathered and buried. To the beasts of the earth and to the birds of the air I have given you as food."
When do you suppose that is to be when the inhabitants, not only of Egypt, but of the Greater Egypt as well -- will be as dung upon the ground, with none to bury, nor weep over them?
It my blind fellows is on the day of the Lord, on a single day, and not from sun-up to sun-down, since it will be a day of no sun, and no moon, but of clouds, when the Son of God takes vengeance on all the earth.
Or verse 7 in chapter 32; "When I blot you out I will cover the heavens, and make their stars dark, I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give its light."
So you see all one has to do is to have the ability to see further than his nose is long, for all that is written in the Scriptures is of the Lord, and nothing is more certain than the word of the Almighty Lord. It is in that day when all the world will indeed know that the Lord is God, and His word a certainty, even as He said:
"Then all the
This ought to be a lesson for any nation, that if you are going to help someone, be realistic, be for real, and not like these Egyptians in their days, as well as many others, even the Yankees, that when they reach out to help someone about to fall over a cliff, with their help they push him over the cliff.
I am not making the sons of men wise ones now am I? But by reiterating what was prophesied I am giving food for thought, and at least am revealing more than any of those brainless doctors of religion have done. Shall I then continue to reveal more of what is written?
It is written: "I will give it into the hand of a mighty one of the nations, he shall surely deal with it as its wickedness deserves." And whom do you presume that mighty one might be, if not its very king, not the one of old, but the new enduring one, who is distasteful of all wickedness, and who hates it with every fiber in his body.
And was not his name by allegory Nebuchadnez'zar, the very head of the statute, the golden head, king of all the earth? And what of his armies, of whom is the Lord speaking when He said; "I have cast it out," when He Himself would no longer have them, but He gave the whole lot of them into the hand of a foreigner, into the hand of a mighty one.
"Foreigners, the most terrible of the nations will cut it down and leave it," so the Lord said. For yes why should I remain, and not rather leave the plain with all those dead ones in it. I cannot even stand the stench of them while they were alive, let alone when they are dead.
And so the word continues: "On the mountains and in all the valleys its branches will fall, and its boughs will lie broken in all the watercourses of the land; and all the peoples of the earth will go from its shadow and leave it. Upon its ruin will dwell all the birds of the air, and upon its branches will be all the beasts of the field."
As thus the valleys are full of corpses, of them that ruled the earth, and of the rich and mighty, and of them that adored violence, the whole strength of the Greater Egypt being broken, with the vultures gorging themselves, then the rest of the people will no longer pay heed to such men or such teachers, but rather flee from them and all that they procured, to look for a better way, a more honest word.
Then will come the time, when my word will be heard, along with every other word of truth and righteousness. Then also in a day it will come to pass where the Lord gave me to prophecy, that I would shade them under my branches, and even so I said, built their nests for them.
I at times complained that I am no more than a stump of a tree, and that on waters edge, with no life to be seen upon me, for as yet my siege of Tyre has to end, and Alexander has yet to slaughter the rest of Tyre.
All this while though the Lord gave me to understand that I was destined to become one of the highest trees, while at the same time the Lord would trim down all those other trees that presumed to have taken in my place in the forest.
For is not this what the Lord gave us to understand when He said: "All this in order that no trees by waters edge may grow to lofty height or set its tops among the clouds, and that no trees that drink water may reach up to them in height."
Before I quote the rest let us understand what it factually is that is said here. Putting it in other words it states; that none of the rulers and/or teachers of this earth will have any boasting that they were the great ones, since these as such were evil men and not educated in righteousness.
But that instead it are the righteous, the sons of God, the faithful ones, and educated who are to have the heights in the world, who are to have the glory of ruling as well as in teaching. None of this world's rulers or well known ones are to have any name or glory at all, since these things belong to the sons of God, to such as God deemed to grant the same.
The names and the glory and honor of all those many trees, the men of this earth, that were not foreigners, is to vanish, with only the sons of God to have glory and honor.
For where do you think the Lord will transport them so that their names will be forgotten? "They are given over to death, to the nether world among mortal men, with those who go down to the pit." So the Lord said.
"Among "mortal" men," so it reads. Mortal in that they are to die, while the sons of God are never mortal, but immortal, that cannot die, nor ever will. A deep pit is made for them that thought they were somebody, and large at that to house all of them.
And shall that not be obvious to you that are wise, beholding how the Lord has raised my horn, while He gives me to trample upon the rulers of this earth? For though I may have been a dead stump of a tree, with the Lord nothing is impossible, nor is He about to give glory to them that are wicked, nor allow them to have for long the glory that they stole from others.
Who now is to weep over the fall of these many that gloried in the earth? "When it (or they) goes down to Sheol I will make the deep mourn for it, and restrain its rivers, and many waters shall be stopped; I will clothe Lebanon in gloom for it, and all the trees of the field shall faint because of it.
I will make the nations quake at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to Sheol with those who go down to the Pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, will be comforted in the nether world. They also shall go down to Sheol with it, to those who are slain by the sword; yea, those who dwelt under its shadow among the nations shall perish."
And yes how these trees, the remaining one will faint on account of it, and the nations tremble when all these are made corpses, with their spirits incarcerated. Those however that were already in the nether world, in the pit, their spirits incarcerated, these at all least will be somewhat comforted, that even these, their very offspring has come down to them.
Comforted, that for the atrocities of their offspring, they likewise did not find immortality, lest these fathers alone should suffer for a wickedness that is not condoned by the Maker of all. And weep for them that these too did not see it fit to keep the statutes of the Almighty One.
As now we may speak of my wages, I have not been underpaid, except by the sons of men, if at all they had anything to pay me with. If by example I were to sell the secrets to the foundations of the earth, the very fundamentals of the sciences for the sum of one trillion dollars, it would be a bargain.
But how would the sons of men find such a sum to pay me with, since they would have to dip their hand into my very own treasury, to pay me out of my own treasury. And what an irony that would be. Thus I furnished them with those secrets free of charge, even as I received it free.
Am I now speaking of what was said of the Lord that He would reward the king of Babylon with the whole of Egypt, men women and children along with all the wealth that may be found among them.
If thus the whole of the Gentile world is given me, its wealth along with every person in body as well as in soul to own them lock stock and barrel, how is any man for payment not to dip his hand into my very own treasury?
Or why for that matter should I wish for any payment when I cannot possibly fathom all the riches that are already given me, all such as the Lord endowed upon me? And are not we all His property? For in making any offering to the Lord, one has no choice but to take that which the Lord has lend him.
How thus is one to give when he has nothing of himself to give, except this one ingredient, namely; to be thankful, to show gratitude, to offer to the Lord his heart in full gratitude. For other than that man does not have anything but what is given him and lend to him of the Lord his Maker.
The doctors of religion now in scrutinizing the Scriptures that are beyond their means, are so fond of finding verses to apply, of making quotations relevant to the point, or perhaps only to their minds. And for the moment allow me to be as foolish as they are, but with intend.
(Jeremiah 43:10--) "Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadnez'zar the king of Babylon, My servant, and he will set his throne above these stones which I have hid, and he will spread his royal canopy over them."
Hidden stones indeed in full view of Judah, of the rebels in Judah that love to associate with the world, wherefore it will come to a surprise for them when a king of Babylon comes to seat himself right at the doorstep of the kings of the earth. Meaning; when the enduring Nebuchadnez'zar shows up.
king then: "Shall

Any takers? Some will say; "It never happened," others will be dumbfounded, and still others will concede that it is yet to be done, especially when they see it done right before their eyes. Then O you people I will indeed go away in peace, for as the Lord said; "I am a king of peace."
And now from Ezekiel 26:5; "She shall be in the midst of the sea a place for the spreading of nets; for I have spoken, says the Lord God; and she shall become a spoil to the nations." It is Tyre of which the Lord is speaking here, of all the merchants of the earth, together with its rulers, and all those oil tankers that they consider the life-blood of their commerce.
Weather you believe me or not, or the word of the Lord, she will indeed become a bare rock, with her points sticking out above the surface looking for a degree of mercy. Nor will it be all so close to the shore, but rather in the midst of the sea, in the midst of that large sea. Then that sea will behold men that spread their nets with this aim, to catch fish.
And yes why should any man attempt to catch fish that is not for consumption, but simply to catch fish, both large and small, and of every sort? Since then I related to you who "she" is, and she be in the midst of the sea, do you presume that the nets will be spread for her? I am propounding to you a riddle, a riddle that will clarify itself in a day to come.
Here however I must curtail my speech lest I should lose my balance walking that tight-rope that indeed I am walking.
For those doctors of religion however, who claim that the king of Babylon never did destroy those that were offshore upon the rock of Tyre does it not clearly in Ezekiel 26:8, state that Nebuchadnez'zar was to slay with the sword the daughters of Tyre on the mainland, repeating the word; "mainland"?
And did not Alexander also become a king of Babylon, though he came after Nebuchadnez'zar? Then for verse 7, the demise of Tyre was to come upon them from the north, yet that king of Babylon, Nebuchadnez'zar was rather to the east of Tyre as well as of Sidon. He then may have attacked from the north, but his coming was from the east.
And yet there is a Nebuchadnez'zar that truly is from the north, an enduring king of kings. So how my dear doctors and historians do you read? And what is your knowledge of history?
Would you like to hear what some of the blind in the earth concoct from the Scriptures? Quote: "It makes Yahweh a petty, vindictive deity who will punish Egyptians in the distant future for something that their ancestors did, and it makes possible the explanation of any prophecy failure in any religion.
in the prophecy could simply say that even though it has not yet been
fulfilled, it will be "someday." That type of "logic"
may impress biblical fundamentalists, but rational people will see it for
exactly what it is--desperation to cling to belief in prophecies that have
been discredited by time.
Rational people will do more than that, for in the first place the Lord made it quite clear by the lips of Jeremiah how all of these were to be blind. As then I quote the words spoken anyone with understanding will realize how along with historic events these words of the Lord came to pass, and are exactly as spoken.
Jeremiah 26: "Therefore hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah who dwell in the land of Egypt: Behold, I have sworn by My great name, says the Lord, that My name shall no longer be invoked by the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying; as the Lord lives."
Unless now I define upon this it will not come to any realization. Look around you in all the world among all the Gentiles, is there any Jew with understanding? Any prophet or teacher that truly knows the word of the Lord? There is not a one, they are all idol worshippers, none with any vision or understanding of the Lord.
For their very wickedness Judah and Israel shortchanged itself, so that the Lord would no longer place His word in any of them. And the Lord went as far as to hand many of them over to cruel nations that killed and burned them by the millions. (German Holocaust as one such)
For so the Lord continues: "Behold, I am watching over them for evil and not for good; all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by famine, until there is an end of them."
Being in the land of Egypt is being in the world among all the nations as the sons of Israel have been for many centuries. And clearly note how the Lord promised this as He said; "Until there is an end of them."
And so throughout all these centuries the Lord unsheathed His sword against them by the hand of the Gentiles where they sojourned. Take therefore a good look around you if you can find any Jew, any man of Judah with understanding upon whose lips the word of the Lord may be.
It is their own word which they speak, since the Lord swore that He would no longer place His Holy word upon their lips. And so it has come to pass, there is not any of them this very day, as there has been throughout these many centuries. Therefore I said "Blindness," for these are blind along with those of the Gentiles that presume to know the word of the Lord.
then as the Lord continues to speak, He said: "And
those who escape the sword shall return from the
The remnant few in number; has indeed returned from among the Gentiles to the land of Israel, have they not, as is evident Israel being a State again, and increasing in numbers? But O how blind these still are, for it is not as yet the day that all of those left among the Gentiles will have come home.
There are still many more in America, and in many other nations, all of them blind with no teacher anointed of God among them. And these as well as those that have returned are still ignorant of this that it is the word of the Lord that will stand, and not theirs. For while the Lord said; "Mine or theirs," that realization is yet to come upon them.
There now is a token, or a sign if you will, the Lord saying: "This shall be the sign to you, says the Lord, that I will punish you in this place, in order that you may know that My words will surely stand against you for evil." That the Lord would punish them in and among the Gentiles is quite a fact of history, is it not - as anyone should well know.
But are these Jews taking it as a sign, or the Gentiles, how very accurate the word of the Lord came to be brought about? Do these Israelites factually realize how there is no seer among them, and the reason for it?
And as for you Gentiles, do not flatter yourselves as if you were any better than my beloved children of Israel, for among you there is none either, except that the Lord procured for one, (or hopefully more) from among them.
By Isaiah the Lord spoke of one that He would make of him a messenger of good tidings to Jerusalem. It was of a person who would speak of many new things that no man had ever heard before, and no one would answer him, or have any counsel at his word.
This was done of me; so many new revelations, with no-one to hear. For if they had heard then the word by Isaiah would not have been correct.
And yet there is something about that king of kings that latest Nebuchadnez'zar, the enduring one, how when the Lord promised him the whole world as wages, since he as such did not receive anything from that race of Tyre, the hearts of the people, He spoke saying:
that day I will cause a horn to spring forth to the house of
I now know before hand that not all that many in Israel will be too thrilled with me, even though I am bringing good news, for along with it I am also reproving them for their wickedness and for the ignorance of their minds.
But all these words I spoke to show how aside of that one anointed one of the Lord, there would be none in the world to have the anointing of God upon him, not among the Jews, nor do I expect any if few from among Gentiles.
For once again I might remind my reader how the Lord spoke to Israel that He would send one of a foreign tongue to them, to speak to them. And I indeed am of a foreign tongue. I know but these languages Dutch and English and I am found to speak only in English.
All things are of the Lord, for if the Lord had not purposed it, how could it be? And now I am speaking in a wisdom that does not reside with the sons of men, I am relating what the Lord has taught me, in the understanding He has given me, that I might know Him and His Word. And who among the sons of men is to contradict me, for I will speak as I will.
By Isaiah the Lord said; "Who has purposed this against Tyre , against the bestower of crowns, whose merchants were princes, whose traders were the honored of the earth? The Lord of host has purposed it, to defile the pride of all glory, to dishonor all the honored of the earth."
How often thus must I pronounce that with Tyre the Lord is referring to the merchants and traders of the earth, to them that enriched themselves at the expense of the many poor and needy? And that all the honored in the earth will be dishonored? As then the Lord overthrew Tyre as well as Sidon with the then king of Babylon, The Lord went on to say:
And she is remembered, the seventy days of years came, all of these seven months of days as the Lord had spoken. The whore is once again inviting all her lovers to lie down with her. And she has grown fat, she is very large committing adultery with all her lovers from all over the earth.
so the Lord said that it would be, and so it has come, and will be, as Isaiah
the end of that time period (seventy years),
the Lord will visit
I now am disgusted in having to hear of and in looking upon that whore, how lewdly she is committing adultery with all the earth, and growing more fat, and more bold than even her sister was. But the hire that she is taking will not serve her for long, nor will it be hers, but it will come to the sons of the Lord, to whom all the wealth of the earth has been ordained.
For so it was spoken how all the wealth of Egypt would come to the king of Babylon, to a royal person, to serve him and his mighty army, all the sons that were raised in righteousness. And how was it spoken? By Isaiah it was; reading;
"Her merchandise and her hire will be dedicated to the Lord; it will not be stored or hoarded, but her merchandise will supply abundant food and fine clothing for those who dwell before the Lord."
thus O you foolish and blind in the earth are you to deny me my wages, and
that which is to serve them that are with me? For So the Lord spoke, and so
it will be, namely;
"I will put an end to the wealth of Egypt by the hand of Nebuchadnez'zar king of Babylon. He and his people with him, the most terrible of the nations shall be brought in to destroy the land, and hey shall draw their swords against the world and fill the land with the slain."
And yes even that last part; "Fill the land with the slain," will be as spoken. And so have I spoken, for He taught me, He alone.
What do I care for wages, or for any riches? I for one do not have the love of money, nor for any glory of man. I am not conceited, but far too generous even to my own hurt.
As then the Lord said; "I will give the land of Egypt to a Lion as wages for his army, because he that king, worked for Me." I am hardly elated, and perhaps because I already knew this for so long, it has grown with me.
But more so because I took a good look at my wages, at that which I was to inherit, and having done so, I was nearly to vomit of what my eyes were forced to behold. I thought by myself; "Who would even want to be a king of this class of people, of such a wicked race that wallows in the ignorance of their minds?"
How then does anyone expect me to be elated, when it is said to me; "You are to be a king of kings, you are to be a ruler of all the nations."
And not just of those which you currently behold, but of all those of the past and of those as yet to come. That whole innumerable multitude will be yours to own them, not only in body but in spirit as well.
Does that not seem like a payment much too excessive for the labors that the Lord imposed upon me for these last fifty years? Or is there any kind of payment that can be greater than that? How am I possibly to govern such an immense multitude? Solomon said that the glory of a king is in the multitude of his subjects.
What immense glory therefore the Lord has presented upon me to grant me the whole of the human race, excepting but these namely the sons of Abraham. How am I to feel having received such a grandiose payment, and such glory as Solomon depicted? How would you feel having labored for a spoon full of the ocean -- to receive the whole ocean to yourself?
Is it even to be imagined, or come to some realization for any man to not merely govern, but to own such a multitude of men women and children, the kind of creatures I love more than anything that may be found upon the earth? For I indeed love all of them, even while I hate all their doings. A very mixed up person as I am.
O my people, my people, though you are not my people, I came to the point of refusing the very payment, the wages which the Lord awarded me with, for in looking upon them I said; "I do not want these people O Lord, they are not fit even to live, let alone be ruled."
But the Lord my God and Father is the stronger to me, and reiterated that I will be their king, likens or no likens, that I indeed am between a rock and a hard spot. Therefore as He once showed me a cup, and said to me: "Whatever I set before you, you shall drink, and you shall understand."
It was knowledge and wisdom that came into me, by which and in which I requested of Him, that He ground this whole lot of people, the whole grand number of them into powder. And yes I am speaking in wisdom and in the knowledge of what will be and how it will be, all such secrets as the Lord revealed to me.
That Greater Egypt therefore will be mine, but not mine only, since there is a that very large army that labored with me, and the Lord did say; "It shall be wages for his army." And yes what a very large army it will be, like I once spoke to Israel how in the day of the Sabbath I wanted them to multiply, seeing how I have need of them.
Am I now speaking of that army which took Tyre on the mainland, or those many with Alexander that took the rest of Tyre? Hardly so, I am speaking of my friends, of the many that likewise are anointed of the Lord Most High, for these are my branches, and like the Lord by Ezekiel in his 17th chapter said; "And under it will dwell all kinds of beasts; in the shade of its branches birds of every sort will nest."
How thus do these historians and doctors of the Scriptures read when it clearly states that none but such few as the Lord would anoint would understand?
A RIVER TO SPEAK
How does a river speak? Shall it be by the noise of its rushing waters? Indeed it does since its waters translates into teachings, and wheresoever that water goes it makes waves, and enters into all the many that thirst, which are then filled by it.
How many rivers now are there upon the earth? It is irrelevant as to how many there may be since the Lord spoke of but seven rivers. But these rivers that He spoke of were larger than any river upon the earth. How therefore may the Lord have been speaking of any earthly river, when His rivers were larger than any to be found upon the earth?
His rivers, those of the Lord, translates into teachers, and for for all the number of them, teachers that is, found in the earth, there were but seven greater than any. Thus we conclude that there are but seven of the greatest teachers in the earth, all of them rivers whose waters came from the Throne of God.
Will now you my reader name them? Four of them were to empty themselves into Israel, with the remaining three to empty themselves into the great sea, namely the sea of Gentiles. As then I have spoken on this elsewhere some time ago, and you wonder about all the many words that I have spoken pouring myself into the great sea, the seventh and last of these was to emerge from the West.
I now did not say, that he was from the West, but rather that he was to emerge from that direction. And so you my people figure it out, as for me I will speak no more on that. But I will continue with this King of Babylon, the one who is more correctly called; "a King of Peace."
The prophet Ezra, also known as Esdras was given a vision, and so he said: "And I beheld one like a Lion aroused up from the forest, and I saw that he sent out a man's voice to the eagle and said; Listen you eagle, I will speak with you, the Most High says thus unto you."
That "THUS," is what you are reading, and also what the whole world will hear in a day that is not far off from the day that I am recording these words here. For by Ezekiel in chapter 30 the Lord said;
will strengthen the arms of the king of
Pharaoh meaning; "king," may also be translated as rulers, as the rulers of the earth. Wherefore in plain terms, that king of peace, also known as "the Lion," will stretch out his hand against the rulers of the earth to cut them down with the sword, with the sword of the Lord that is. For again Isaiah said that he would trample upon them.
If then you are still wondering who this fellow is, this bold fellow, that is speaking so boldly like no other man, with a knowledge like no other man, I will quote to you what the Angel of the Lord said to the prophet regarding that king of Babylon, also depicted as a Lion. He spoke thus: (Book of Esdras 13:13-15)
the Lion whom you saw rising out of the forest, and roaring and speaking to
the eagle, and rebuking her for her unrighteousness with all the words which
is the anointed, which the Highest has kept for them and for their
wickedness unto the end.
shall reprove them, and upbraid them with their cruelty.
For he shall set them before him alive in judgment, and shall rebuke them, and correct them. But the rest of My people, those who have been preserved upon My borders, these he shall deliver with mercy, and he shall make them joyful until the day of judgment."
"Anointed one," so as the Angel said, to come in the ending of the times. Wherefore when you see all these things taking place, know him to be of the Lord Most High, anointed to the task for which the Lord had kept him to come in his time.
And for still more confirmation check out Esdras chapter 6, verses 9 to 12, where with the coming of that Lion, the foundations of the earth are understood, an understanding that could not possibly come of any man, as recorded by Jeremiah 31:37.
