PART #1 - BIBLE'S "Prophetic Vocabulary" OPENS PROPHECIES!

       These posts are lovingly dedicated to my parents; 
         -and to the memory of Robert H. Hayden Jr.,

  •        who sparked a young man's quest to seek out and learn of the truth contained within Scripture.


BUT MOREOVER;
       To my children and grandchildren

       FOR THE DAY that THE LORD moves their hearts to SEEK AND FOLLOW THE TRUTH.




 

         Countless generations have sought to understand the Prophecies contained in the Books of Daniel and Revelation.




       If one has been researching Biblical Prophesy for any amount of time, it must be increasingly obvious that this deceived world is a "Bottomless Pit" of CONFLICTING EXPLANATIONS of Prophecy.     








So how are God's Children to ever know; 

-WHICH ONE 

-of the hundreds of "DIVERSE explanations" 

-is THE ACTUAL TRUTH Scripture is trying to reveal?











The Bible has a definite story to tell.



IF WE TRULY SEEK to understand that story;


       -we simply have to STOP trying to LEAD THE STORY, 

with diverse CONFLICTING denominational explanations we were TAUGHT BY THE WORLD; 






  • and JUST LISTEN TO THE ACTUAL STORY that God has preserved for His TRUE children for THOUSANDS OF YEARS.


John 14
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.











       It IS NOT the intent of this post 
to try to convince anyone that America IS that GREAT CITY BABYLON that is to be destroyed in one hour!






       It IS the intent of this post to present NON-DENOMINATIONAL 
ORGANIZED easily verifiable 
SCRIPTURAL and HISTORICAL FACTS
IN A SERIES OF SHORT EASY TO READ POSTS, to a World Wide Jury THAT IS SEEKING VERIFIABLE TRUTH 

 






In Scripture;


we are told that ANY DISPUTE REQUIRES TWO or THREE WITNESS'S to resolve. 


Deuteronomy 19
15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: 

-at the mouth of two witnesses, 

-or at the mouth of three witnesses, 



-shall the matter be established.










       Please understand that the disturbing evidence submitted for your consideration 
is NOT based upon HUMAN theories, speculation, assumptions, or ANY HUMAN religious  denominational teachings or tradition;





  •  but is based strictly upon; 


  • The TESTIMONY 
        of FIVE TRUTHFUL WITNESS'S:

       

       -Daniel


       -John(in Revelation)


       -Jesus Christ HIMSELF


       -GOD HIMSELF


       -"Documented Human History"











Depending upon what you seek that has led you to this place, 


remember ONE THING as you read through the following TESTIMONY;


Romans 4
3 For what saith the scripture? 

Abraham believed God, 


and it was counted unto him for righteousness.







      As a JUROR; 

it is ENTIRELY UP TO YOU to determine WHAT or WHOM YOU CHOOSE TO BELIEVE!


    






LET US START;


Consider this;


  • ISN'T TRUE PROPHECY ACTUALLY JUST HISTORY WRITTEN IN ADVANCE?




prophecy

noun   proph-e-cy

Simple Definition of prophecy

  • : a statement that something will happen in the future
  • : the power or ability to know what will happen in the future
Source: Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary







IF PROPHECY REALLY IS HISTORY WRITTEN BEFORE IT HAPPENED, wouldn't Documented Human History be the KEY to understanding Biblical Prophecies?


 




ESPECIALLY IN THE "LAST DAYS";



       WOULDN'T comparing Biblical Prophecy against "Documented Human History" be 

the ONLY true test of FULFILLED Prophetic accuracy, and 

serve to pinpoint our CURRENT place in time within prophecy?







However, 

for most of us there IS just one minor stumbling block. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



Biblical Prophesies are full of "SYMBOLISM".  



       -Great Red Dragon

       -Great Harlot

       -"Little Horn"


       -"Great City" Babylon






        The REAL difficulty lies within OUR HUMAN ABILITY to understand Biblical "SYMBOLIC" Prophecies to compare against readily available Documented Human History.




           IS THIS NOT TRUTH?

           




  Let's face it, . . . 


       Sometimes trying to understand what is written in the Bible is just plain tough.






And BECAUSE OF this DIFFICULTLY IN UNDERSTANDING WHAT IS WRITTEN;




The TRUE challenge FOR THOSE SEEKING WISDOM AND TRUTH IS REVEALED:



-INTERPRETATION









BUT WHAT IF; 
the Bible contained not only . . . . . . . . . 


-"THE MYSTERY" humans seek to understand


-But also "THE KEY" to unlock those mysteries for God's TRUE CHILDREN which seek the truth.







       The first EVIDENCE presented for JURY consideration could be called a "PROPHETIC VOCABULARY".





       Did you know that when "SYMBOLIC" Prophetic Words are used in Scripture, Scripture ALWAYS PROVIDES THE INTERPRETATION OF THE SYMBOLIC WORD? 



       As we will soon learn, this IS the TRUTH!




      If one can absorb this KEY UNDERSTANDING, it is amazing how quickly the scales fall from the eyes, and the Prophecies instantly begin to reveal their mysteries.










       A "Prophetic Vocabulary" simply uses the TRANSLATION PROVIDED WITHIN SCRIPTURE of those "SYMBOLIC" Words.





       BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY; 




       The Bible's "Prophetic Vocabulary" ALSO;


  •  ALLOWS God's Children TO READ and Understand BIBLICAL PROPHECIES!






THERE IS NO NEED FOR HUMAN

       -SPECULATION
     
       -THEORY or, 

       -DENOMINATIONAL INTERPRETATION;



Because SCRIPTURE INTERPRETS ITSELF!!!






EXAMPLE:
  • Daniel 7:3 shows us 4 BEASTS

  3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.    






  • Daniel 7:17 tells us these 4 BEASTS are 4 KINGS

17 These great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings, [which] shall arise out of the earth.







       If our "Prophetic Vocabulary" IS BASED UPON SCRIPTURAL INTERPRETATION, would not the "SYMBOLIC" word;

 

 

  • BEAST = KING / KINGDOM?





       One may also notice that the SYMBOLIC Word "SEA" is translated as EARTH.








       Using THE TRANSLATION PROVIDED BY SCRIPTURE(Daniel 7:17)


Daniel 7:3 actually reads;

3 And four great KINGS/KINGDOMS came up from the EARTH, diverse one from another.



Daniel 7
23 Thus he said, The fourth BEAST shall be the fourth KINGDOM upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.





       Below is a list of "SYMBOLIC" Prophetic Words taken from the Books of Daniel and Revelation.
  





This list INCLUDES THE INTERPRETATION  provided by SCRIPTURAL INTERPRETATION.



  • BEAST  =  KING / KINGDOM

  • SEA  =  EARTH / Population of Souls
  • MOUNTAIN  =  KING / KINGDOM

  • HORN  =  KING / KINGDOM

  • STAR  =  ANGEL

  • CANDLESTICK  =  CHURCH

  • HEAD  =   KING / KINGDOM

  • WATERS  = PEOPLE / KINDREDS / TONGUES







       At this time THE DEFENSE would ask YOU, the Jury, to verify whether the above is truth.


       PINK Links to godrules.net are provided for each Chapter of the Bible that is being explored, so the Jury can verify that what is written is truth.








-Or you can simply continue to believe 
what the world has taught you to believe.




ROMANS 12
And be not conformed to this worldbut be ye transformed by the re-newing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 
 







       Consider the "SYMBOLIC" word MOUNTAIN.



DANIEL 2

  • In Daniel 2:34 and 2:35  we are shown a stone cut without hands that became a great MOUNTAIN that filled the whole earth.

 

  • In Daniel 2:44 and 2:45  we are told the stone became a great KINGDOM that filled the whole earth.





       In our "Prophetic Vocabulary" would not the SYMBOLIC word MOUNTAIN  =  KINGDOM?


  • STONE became great MOUNTAIN  
  • STONE became great KINGDOM









       Consider the "SYMBOLIC" word HORN.



DANIEL 7

  • In Daniel 7:7 we are shown a 4th dreadful beast with 10 HORNS

  • In Daniel 7:24 we are told the 10 HORNS are 10 KINGS.

 


 DANIEL 8

  • In Daniel 8:3 we are shown a Ram with 2 HORNS.

  • In Daniel 8:20 We are told the 2 HORNS are 2 KINGS.

 

  • In Daniel 8:5 we are shown a He Goat with 1 notable HORN.

  • In Daniel 8:21  we are told the 1 notable HORN is the 1st KING of Greece.

 


REVELATION 17

  • In Revelation 17:3 we are shown a scarlet beast with 7 HEADS and 10 HORNS.

  • In Revelation 17:12 we are told the 10 HORNS are 10 KINGS without kingdoms





      In our "Prophetic Vocabulary" would not the SYMBOLIC word HORN = KING?









       Consider the "SYMBOLIC" words CANDLESTICK and STAR.



REVELATION 1

  • In Revelation 1:12 we are shown 7 CANDLESTICKS.

  • In Revelation 1:16 we are shown 7 STARS

 

  • In Revelation 1:20 we are told the (7 CANDLESTICKS are 7 CHURCHS) and the (7 STARS are 7 ANGELS).

 






      In our "Prophetic Vocabulary" would not 
STAR  =  ANGEL and CANDLESTICK  =  CHURCH?







       Consider the "Symbolic" word "HEAD";




Daniel 2 
In Daniel 2:32 we are shown a "HEAD OF GOLD"


In Daniel 2:37,38  we are told that the "HEAD OF GOLD" was KING Nebuchadnezzar




In our "Prophectic Vocabulary" would not the word 

HEAD = KING/KINGDOM?
(Note: as we will soon discover, this IS NOT the ONLY Scripture that verifies this translation!)



       Consider the "SYMBOLIC" word WATERS.



REVELATION 17

  • In Revelation 17:1 we are shown a HARLOT that sits upon many WATERS.

 

  • In Revelation 17:15 we are told the WATERS are PEOPLES / NATIONS / TONGUES.

 








       Is it becoming obvious that HUMAN INTERPRETATION OF PROPHECY IS NEVER NECESSARY, simply because SCRIPTURE ALWAYS PROVIDES THE CORRECT INTERPRETATION?
      



       Does one also begin to notice CONSISTENCY within the INTERPRETATIONS PROVIDED BY SCRIPTURE?



DANIEL 12
12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.











       The Bible has a definite story to tell.



       To understand that story we simply have to STOP trying to LEAD THE STORY, with diverse CONFLICTING DENOMINATIONAL explanations



  • and JUST LISTEN TO THE ACTUAL STORY that God has preserved for His TRUE children for THOUSANDS OF YEARS.





     The BEST PLACE to START any Story is at the VERY beginning.





     In the next post we will put our "Prophetic Vocabulary" to the test for truth, as we expose Satan's "Greatest Story Never Told", and America's TRUE place within that story, BEGINNING with the Book of Daniel.









      If your spirit has recognized that there is truth contained within this, and all these 32 posts, please share this website with those that you love, that are also seeking truth.



May God bless,



































PART #2 - THE TRUE BATTLEGROUND



       In Post #1, you were introduced to, and were asked TO TEST the truthfulness of, what could be called a "Prophetic Vocabulary".



       Using this "Prophetic Vocabulary", if one can put aside whatever a "deceived" world has taught

and just listen . . . . . . . . . . . . . 


- The TRUE STORY that Scripture is trying to tell begins to reveal itself.



       In PART #2, BEFORE we hear the TESTIMONY of Danielit is necessary to gain laser sharp focus on another CORE understanding

- the TRUE BATTLEGROUND of God verses Satan.






       But this understanding will also come with an inescapable choice.  Which side will you seek to stand on.



       That choice begins, or ends with a single word;



       -Truth








       -IS THE BIBLE 100% TRUTH?



       One can summarily conclude that the Bible is TRUTH



       or one can simply dismiss the Bible as a collection of fairy tales, 




       or one can purpose to TEST what has been written for truth or falsehood.
(most never take this path)

John 14
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to passye might believe.







       Religious Denominations tend to talk about Good and Evil;

       BUT, . . . . . . . .


       In it's most basic form, it would appear that the TRUE BATTLE being described within Scripture is between; 



       TRUTH and FALSEHOOD.






       To support this understanding, let us hear the TESTIMONY of Scripture.





Consider TRUTH verses LIES!





       WHAT does SCRIPTURE SAY IS the Truth, and WHY is THE TRUTH so important in God's EVERLASTING Kingdom?





     In John 14, JESUS HIMSELF 
TESTIFIES that HE (JESUS) IS THE TRUTH!


JOHN 14
 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 







        And then Scripture TESTIFIES of another THAT IS NOT TRUTH.



       The ENEMY OF TRUTHLIES.






       In John 8, Scripture TESTIFIES SATAN is THE FATHER OF LIES.

JOHN 8

44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

  






So, WHAT IS IT that Scripture is trying to reveal to us?



 


       Could this be OUR FIRST GLIMPSE of TWO SPIRIT BEINGS,



John 4
24 God [is] a Spirit: 
and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.





Could this be OUR FIRST GLIMPSE 
of TWO SPIRIT BEINGS AT WAR WITH EACH OTHER,

known to human beings in this world as;



-(Jesus)[Spirit of Truth]


-(Satan)[Spirit of Error]







1 John 4
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. 


Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.







Perhaps this "TRUTH" THING is a "little deeper" than it first appeared?




TRUTH(Jesus)
 JOHN 14
 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,



verses 



LIES(Satan)!


JOHN 8

44 . . . . . there is no truth in him

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.







      IN THAT LIGHT,

      IT WOULD APPEAR,


  •  the ENTIRE CONTEXT of Scripture 


  • is centered on GOD'S contention with HUMANS REJECTION OF TRUTH!







       Consider this;



  • IF JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUTH,

       -What are we rejecting, . . if we reject truth?





  • AND IF "THE TRUTHIS GOING TO RETURN IN THE CLOUDS . . . . . . . .




       Consider what happens to a falsehoodonce the indisputable truth is revealed?








IT IS A PROVEN FACT THAT FALSEHOOD 

CANNOT EXIST IN THE PRESENCE OF TRUTH!




Malachi
 2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he [is] like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:


Revelation 2:16
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quicklyand will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.







17 Sanctify them through thy truth: 


thy word is truth.




JOHN 1
 14 And the Word(TRUTH) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

17 For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.







       Do you recognize a BIGGER PICTURE beginning to appear . . . . . . .


regarding the DEPTH of "a concept" 


WORD;
 known as "TRUTH"?







       Which "Spirit" did Christ send to mankind after HIS ascension into Heaven?



       The Spirit OF TRUTH

       . . . . . . . . . . . to GUIDE US INTO?

John 16

13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.









       What does Scripture TESTIFY WAS JESUS SOLE PURPOSE of COMING INTO the World?



JOHN 18
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. 



To this end was I born, 
and for this cause came I into the world


that I should bear witness 

UNTO THE TRUTH. 


Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.










       Who does Scripture say are COUNTED as GOD"S CHOSEN PEOPLE?

ISAIAH 26
2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.








       What does SCRIPTURE TESTIFY is the "PROTECTION" of GOD'S PEOPLE?

EPHESIANS 6
 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;







     Is there Scriptural TESTIMONY regarding THOSE THAT DO NOT LOVE THE TRUTH?


2 THESSALONIANS 2
10 And with all deceivableness of   unrighteousness in them that perish
because they received not the love of the truththat they might be saved.


11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:


12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 




       So, ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE it appears that there are what humans might consider  


TWO CONCEPTS 

TRUTH - Jesus Christ

verses


LIES - Satan



-which are DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED to each


-and are involved IN some EPIC SPIRITUAL CONFLICT!







        - One ENTITY(CHRIST) 

  • IS TRUTH;


        - The OTHER ENTITY(Satan)

  • LIES TO DECEIVE AWAY from TRUTH



REVELATION 12
 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satanwhich deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.



Consider the definition of the word "DECEIVED";

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/deceive
Dictionary

deceive

verb de·ceive \di-ˈsēv\

: to make (someone) believe something that 
is not true


de·ceivedde·ceiv·ing

Full Definition of DECEIVE

transitive verb
1
archaic :  ensnare
2
a obsolete :  to be false to
b archaic :  to fail to fulfill
3
obsolete :  cheat
4
: to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid







       So the following verse COULD BE changed to read;

REVELATION 12
 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satanwhich 

causes the whole world to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid


: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.




      Unfortunately for humanity; 

- the most DIFFICULT THING 


  •     is that people just CANNOT SEE, much less fathom, how THEIR DENOMINATION has strayed from the truth!







But SCRIPTURE states "THE WHOLE WORLD"

What is the definition of the word "WHOLE"?



Dictionary

1whole

adjective \ˈhōl\


 complete or full : not lacking or leaving out any part

having all the parts : not divided or cut into parts or pieces








       So here is where it starts to get really hard for most humans.



       Because ALL of the "organized" Religions and Churches of THIS WORLD, 


       - ARE A PART OF THE WORLD,





       And SCRIPTURE TESTIFIES that the WHOLE WORLD (not lacking or leaving out any part ) 



has been deceived by Satan. . . . . . . . . . . . . 

 accept as true or valid what is false or invalid 

       SATAN'S DECEPTION includes and involves EVERY WORLDLY 
  • Kingdom / Government (lacking none)


  • Educational System (lacking none)



  • Organized religion (lacking none).









ALL BELIEVE they have heard truth and KNOW TRUTH, but Scripture says that; 


       Just because we ALL BELIEVE the "world is flat"DOES NOT MAKE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT, TRUTH!



IF Satan's lies are SO CONVINCING that EVEN THE VERY ELECT are IN DANGER; 

       should you really feel secure in what the world has taught you is truth?



So now the choice is yours.


You can dismiss what has been stated as foolishness, 


or you can chose to follow the truth, no matter where the truth would lead you, . . . . 


and read a REAL LIFE horror story that not even Stephen King could conjure up.




       In the next post, we will begin examining;


  • SCRIPTURAL PROPHECY 



COMPARED TO 


  • ACTUAL DOCUMENTED, VERIFIABLE HISTORICAL EVENTS


in an effort to POSITIVELY IDENTIFY Daniel's 4th Dreadful Diverse Beast;




       -Starting at the VERY BEGINNING OF THE STORY, in The Book of Daniel.






Psalms 25
Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: 
for thou [art] the God of my salvation

on thee do I wait all the day.
