Star of David = Jesus Christ = Morning Star = Star of David

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.

– Revelation 22:16

THE DOWNWARD TRIANGLE: the Root…of David
THE UPWARD TRIANGLE: the Offspring of David
BOTH TRIANGLES AS ONE: the bright Morning Star
__________________________________________

* Five Proofs that Jesus Christ = Morning Star of David *

WWW.PROOF #1)
In Revelation 22:16, we see [Jesus] Himself claiming that He is the very “Star of David” Himself, by stating that I am the Root and the Offspring of David THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR. If He is the Morning Star and offspring of David then by definition he Himself is the “Star of David.” (The Star of David Attack, by Rabbi/Brother Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky, Yourarmstoisrael.org)

WWW.PROOF #2) Yeshua [Jesus] said, “I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star.” Perhaps, just perhaps, the Star of David represents not only Israel and the Jewish people, but even the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ).(IS THE STAR OF DAVID KOSHER? Rick Chaimberlin, hemaemet.org)

WWW.PROOF #3) The star is made up of equilateral triangles representing the trinity, three equal sides, one triangle.. One is pointing to heaven, the other to earth, representing the God of heaven and earth…Messiah Yeshua [Jesus] is the Star of David, the Star of Jacob, the bright and morning Star. (What is the Star of David? by thereistruth, Christianityboard.com)

WWW.PROOF #4) Ruth quotes: ‘I Jesus…am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star’. IS THIS NOT THE STAR OF DAVID…wonderful insight…with further reflection, it appears that Jesus is the Star of David……. (Hebrew and the Star of David, Heaven Awaits, heavenawawaits.wordpress.com)

WWW.PROOF #5) The Star of David is an exciting and vivid reminder of our future when we will be like Him [Jesus Christ], shining in that day when we see Him, as He really is, the bright and Morning Star of David Gilyahna/Revelation 22:16. (The Star of David Attack, by Rabbi/Brother Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky, Yourarmstoisrael.org)
________________________

THE CATHOLIC BELIEF: The six-pointed star is the emblem of the Royal House of David even to this day. Christ Who is born of the House of David, can truly claim this emblem as His own. (Star of David, JESSE TREE SYMBOLS. Ewtn.com)

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.

– Revelation 22:16

THE CONCLUSION: Revelation 22:16 is a direct Biblical reference to the six-pointed Star of David as the primary symbol of the Morning Star, Jesus Christ. The passage’s specific location at the very end of the very last Book in the Christian is no coincidence. Basically, the last thing that Jesus Christ has to say to billions of his followers even today, at the very end of the very last book in the Judeo/Christian Bible, is that He is ‘the bright Morning Star’ (Lucifer in Latin).

I, Jesus Christ, am Lucifer…

The Wickedness of the Swastika

The swastika was not widely utilized by followers of the Abrahamic religions. Where it does exist, it is not portrayed as an explicitly religious symbol.

– Swastika, Wikipedia

The two swastikas, also commonly referred to as broken, or crooked, crosses are in a moral sense, the epitome of wickedness and evil. Some might claim that the swastikas are symbolic of nature itself, given the fact that water drains one way in the North and the opposite way in the South, or that tornadoes and hurricanes resemble them in their destructive activity. This is all true, but in the moral dimension, in the acts and practices of mankind, the swastikas are best seen as representing the forces which are actively opposed to the Judeo-Christian tradition and the Bible. This can best be visualized in the following manner:

 
Forces of

Creation

          swastikart2gifLEFT.gif image by Judas999

swastikalft2gifRIGHT.gif image by Judas999

 Direction Counter-Clockwise
Standard Clock
Clockwise
 Orientation The West
 The Center
The East
 Gravitation The Right
 The Middle
The Left
 Planet The Moon
 The Earth
 The Sun

This simple chart is a form of Judeo-Christian truth containing multiple layers of facts and traditions which combine to form a comprehensive truth that will inevitably be understood by everyone. For starters, here are few basic factual cornerstones which provide ample proof concerning the standard truth shown

 

– In nature, the Sun (man’s Left hand) rises in the East travels across the sky and sets in the West to be replaced by the Moon (man’s Right hand).
– The Left hand of Man is symbolized by the Sun because Judeo-Christian practices and traditions are the future, and they have been founded upon the civilized use of the left hand to clean the butt after defecation. This proves mankind more than capable of progressing, advancing, and perhaps even evolving well beyond their animal roots.
– The backwards (counterclockwise) nature of mankind’s Right hand is perfectly symbolized by the swastika twisted to the left, a sign of pure evil. God’s original plan for man to never kill or eat any animal has yet to be fulfilled and was a direct commandment of God even before the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1:27-31).
– The Northern Hemisphere has always been considered up, not down, to be above and not below, superior, not inferior. Just as nearly everyone is Right-handed, tellingly symbolized by the Swastika twisted to Left, literally all water located North of the equator usually always drains down to the Left. The opposite is true in the Southern Hemisphere.
– Mankind’s RIght hand (the Moon) eats and drinks the dead material of plants and animals, while his Left hand (the Sun) assists in leaving behind feces, that which will someday become soil where more life can take root, grow, and prosper. This is much like how death traditionally symbolized by the moon (man’s Right hand) feeds on life, especially through aging and disease, just as the sun (man’s Left hand) provides life and continually gives away its heat and light without ever stopping.
– Mankind’s Right hand was created by God to do good, but throughout history he has done evil instead.
– The brutality and insanity exhibited by the Nazis, whose flag featured a swastika twisted to the Left, clearly shows that extremist, fanatical politics (perfectly represented by the two sick and twisted swastikas) are inherent enemies of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

Tragically, the pride and arrogance of some anti-Christian thinkers continues, most especially those who deliberately reject obvious, age-old Judeo-Christian truths as being incompatible with their neo-Pagan outlook. At the same time, their blatantly crooked patterns of thought also appear more than willing to accept evil, perversion, hypocrisy, corruption, nepotism, and crime as the normal state of reality both in this world and the next. The simple, basic symbolic view of reality as shown above stands in clear opposition to their modern, relativistic viewpoint, just as the Bible clearly describes their crooked thinking, which has not changed for thousands of years.

Better is the poor man walking in his simplicity, than the rich in crooked ways. (Proverbs 28:6)

He who loves transgression loves strife. He who raises his door seeks destruction. He who has a crooked mind finds no good, and he who is perverted in his language falls into evil. (Proverbs 17:19-21)

Her feet go down to death, her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life, her paths are crooked, but she knows it not. (Proverbs 5:5-7)

Discretion will guard you. Understanding will watch over you, to deliver you from the way of evil, from the man who speaks perverse things, from those who leave the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness; who delight in doing evil and rejoice in the perversity of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.  (Proverbs 2:11-15)

Both swastikas turn away from the central cross to clearly indicate their deliberate turning away from obedience and practices of the Judeo-Christian laws of God. Thus, the overall understanding that the Judeo-Christian age-old dislike and animosity towards both symbols provides a clear foundation for the simple moderate truth of the Bible and the natural wisdom of the Cross to prevail. There is a also a solution to the problem of man’s crooked ways and paths which is clearly described throughout the Bible. The instructions to mankind are quite explicit and that is to never turn aside to the left hand or to the right hand, thus resulting in the crooked swastika. Here are the pertinent BIblical passages:

Do not turn to the right hand nor to the left, Remove your foot from evil. (Proverbs 4:27)

And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left. (2 Kings 22:2)

You will be careful to do therefore as the LORD your God has commanded you, you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.  (Deuteronomy 5:32)

According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do. Thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall show thee to the right hand nor to the left. (Deuteronomy 17:11)

(So) that his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children, in the midst of Israel.  (Deuteronomy 17:20)

Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them. (Deuteronomy 28:14)

Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you, do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.  (Joshua 1:7)

Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right hand or to the left. (Joshua 23:6)

As shown in the chart above, the Christian Cross, symbolizing the entire Biblical tradition, stands in direct opposition to the two swastikas and their multiple layers of wickedness and disobedience. For the Judeo-Christian believer, God’s Left and Right Hands are utilized for mercy to soften justice, for fairness to balance exceptionalism, and for understanding to oppose efficiency. while obedience to His commandments helps to save people from the consequences of their own crooked ways and paths. In sum, both the swastikas represent a deliberate turning away from the truth of the Cross, and the truth about God the Father. The LORD God of the Bible desires that no-one lose their way forward by turning aside to the left or the right, both of which are step backwards and away from the goodness and light of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

The Judeo-Christian, Part I.

Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

– Ecclesiastes 12:13

Part I. Moses, a Scientific Genius 3,000 Years ahead of His time

For many of today’s intellectuals, modern science, most especially Darwinism, has led them to conclude that the Judeo-Christian tradition is not only an out-dated concept, but a primitive superstition which may even prove to be incompatible with modern, secular society. What nearly everyone seems to have overlooked is the sheer ancient scientific genius that can be clearly seen in the first chapter of Genesis. In just a few short verses, this particular text mentions the Big Bang, the stellar evolution of the universe, the general geophysics of Earth formation, and the exact sequence of biological evolution as seen on this planet. In other words, secular intellectuals must admit that the Genesis account of Creation, what they usually dismiss as mythological, is closer to the modern scientific understanding of the natural world than any other rival Creation legend. As one scientifically-minded Judeo-Christian believer puts it:

The ancient Bible (including Genesis 1) was written, around 3,300 years ago, as it is understood today. Only in the past two hundred years has science started to be capable of recognizing the (apparently) correct scientific sequence of those events. And they have turned out to be REMARKABLY similar.

– Genesis and Science ARE Compatible!

Seen carefully, the real question that remains unanswered is how the orphan son of a lowly Israelite mother named Moses, who was raised and educated by the Pharaoh’s daughter, ever became so enlightened and informed about how the sun and the stars, along with Earth and all its life-forms ever came into existence. Since the time that Moses was still living in ancient Egypt, around 1,300-1,500 B.C., modern scholars have now determined that, in general, Egyptian civilization never really developed any actual scientific knowledge at all, except their exceptional building skills and clever agricultural know-how. Egyptian hieroglyphics, as deciphered by modern experts, reveal that the society Moses was brought up in was woefully ignorant about the skies above them and the wild-life that surrounded them. In short, ancient Egypt was a polytheistic, superstitious, slave-based kingdom completely ignorant of astrophysics, biological evolution, and nearly any other scientific field of study. On the other hand, the Book of Genesis is either an indication of supreme intelligence or one of the luckiest guesses about the sequence of evolution ever known in the history of the world.

Genesis 1 depicts the unfolding of the Divine energies in the sequence Earth, plants, marine animals, terrestrial animals, and humans – precisely the sequence confirmed by evolution.

– Orthodoxy Today

In stark contrast to the mental nonsense of ancient Egypt, the first chapter of Genesis written by Moses is like that of a well-informed modern scientist deliberately writing a semi-legendary account of Creation and clearly intending it for the common man of Israel to understand. Back then most people were illiterate, completely ignorant, and basically frightened of the unknown, which included the skies above them and the wild animals who lurked at the edges of Egyptian society. Obviously the author set out to write a short, fact-based account of the world’s primordial origins which would both educate and inspire the common people, as well as the readers that came after him, yet remain absolutely valid metaphorically. Seen carefully, the story of Genesis is like an incredibly poetic saga of a wise and merciful sorcerer or wizard who looks deeply into a dark, magic cauldron and then casts His spells through His thunderous words, thus causing the universe to be magically brought in existence.

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

– Genesis 1:1-2

Even so, this fun and entertaining folk-tale of a seven-day ritual of great power and magic also remains completely embedded with scientific facts, which were probably meant to be taught centuries later when the simple minds of the ancient, gullible listeners were better able to understand them. One must remember that the precise details of the Darwinian theory of evolution can only be grasped by well-educated thinkers fully versed in physics, mathematics, chemistry, and biology. Remember, not a single one of the ancient Israelites whom Moses was addressing knew anything about the molecular structure of DNA or the mathematical concept of random chance or probability. Not only that, there is also the spiritual issue of man’s special relationship to God, the mysterious entity who hides behind the curtain of material reality. A primitive mind could easily misinterpret the Darwinian model of history and then wrongly assume that their beloved pet dog, cat, or monkey, is just as worthwhile as their fellow human beings who have been blessed by God to rule the animals, not deify them as the ancient Egyptians did. The gods they worshipped were seen as humans with various animal heads placed upon them, an absurd impossibility. This was not the case with the God of Moses and his fellow Israelites, whom they had oppressed and enslaved.

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.

– Genesis 1:27

Genesis clearly reiterates the obvious truth of the real world that the Biblical God’s last, ultimate creation known as men and women must, like good brothers and sisters, look after each other first and foremost, because none of the other animals will ever feed, clothe, or truly love their rulers known as man. They don’t know how. Rather than the violent chaos of Darwinian ‘survival of the fittest’, Genesis depicts a God that, in turn, rules benevolently over mankind. The account written by Moses is also followed by a repeated emphasis that all men must try to obey their Creator’s instinctive commandments against theft, murder, adultery, and lying, concepts that other life-forms clearly don’t and may never comprehend. Modern evolutionary scientists know quite well that mankind is far superior, and completely different, than any other animals, including the apes and gorillas which came long before God endowed Adam with a hand-made immortal soul. These moral and ethical lessons are basically what the Judeo-Christian Creation story is clearly intended to proclaim, not the exact number of eons involved in stellar evolution, or the evolutionary reason behind the horns of goats and sheep..

Evolution contradicts a literalistic interpretation of Genesis. However, according to Roman Catholicism and most contemporary Protestant Churches, biblical literalism in the creation account is not mandatory. Christians have considered allegorical interpretations of Genesis since long before the development of Darwin’s theory of evolution.

– Theistic Evolution, Wikipedia

Put bluntly, modern man knows quite well that most of the stars and planets which came into being originated billions of years ago, while biological life slowly developed over the course of hundreds of millions of years. However, primitive man had absolutely no clue how any thing had been created. Most were too busy working hard to survive and feed their families to ever really question the material world that surrounded. Thus, to cater to all the ancient Israelites, Moses probably chose to keep the Creation account short and simple for the sake of his primitive audience, most of whom could not even count up to ten. However, the factual and scientific sequence of Earth’s formation and the evolution of life on this planet can still be clearly seen in his Creation ‘story’.

Theistic evolutionists argue that it is inappropriate to use Genesis as a scientific text, since it was written in a pre-scientific age and originally intended for religious instruction; as such, seemingly chronological aspects of the creation accounts should be thought of in terms of a literary framework.

– Theistic Evolution, Wikipedia

What does emerge from the Genesis text is a concise understanding concerning the sequence of events leading up to the present solar system (Astrophysics) along with an implied knowledge that carefully classifies life-forms into scientifically-based categories like plants or animals, birds or insects, fish or mammals, and even carnivores and herbivores (Zoology). Not only that, but the seven-day period of Creation shows an absolutely unmistakable background knowledge of the correct sequence of Darwinian evolution (Biology). Remember, this account was written more than 3,000 years ago in a culture that sincerely worshipped the sun (a hot ball of gas) and moon (a freezing cold desert rock) as supernatural gods who ruled over them.

There are very few instances where the Bible and science stand face-to-face regarding established facts. The most prominent of these is the story of Creation in Genesis.

– Genesis and Science ARE Compatible!

Once again, Moses shows a highly advanced, basically unheard of, theological outlook (Universal Monotheism) which clearly believes the one, true God created all material reality from nothing at all, except his own Divine will-power (Judeo-Christian-Islam). Where did Moses ever learn these incredibly complex and scientifically-based doctrines, thousands of years before anyone else even came close to understanding them? There is no way he was taught these things from the ancient Egyptians who were basically ignorant, primitive Pagans who left behind no scholarly or scientific writings, with the sole exception of absurd, nonsensical legends concerning many different gods, such as the Egyptian book of the dead.

The story in Genesis 1 of the Bible, about the beginning of everything, is fully compatible with modern science. It actually even PROVES that modern science is on the right track! And modern science has CONFIRMED that Genesis presents the proper sequence of events!

– Genesis and Science ARE Compatible!

Today’s arrogant skeptics and agnostic, or even atheist, scientists love to point a finger at the God-fearing Christians who insist the world was created by God in just seven days. Historically speaking, the most literate Judeo-Christian believers of the past never truly believed in the seven day mega-miracle of Genesis. In reality, both Christians, and the Jews before them, have nearly always understood that the seven day time period was allegorical, like a child’s educational story, and that the real world actually took much longer to form. As one source describes:

Evolution contradicts a literalistic interpretation of Genesis. However, according to Roman Catholicism and most contemporary Protestant Churches, biblical literalism in the creation account is not mandatory. Christians have considered allegorical interpretations of Genesis since long before the development of Darwin’s theory of evolution.

– Theistic Evolution, Wikipedia

Although some Pagan Creation myths are quite poetic and meaningful, the fact remains that not a single ancient Creation story ever truly addresses the material world’s origins in a scientific manner, with the sole exception of the Book of Genesis. Nearly every one of them is an obvious fairy tale composed of non-existent monsters, heroes and villains, while some of them also include grotesque imagery and even blatant sexual perversion as an integral part of biological life’s creation. Indeed, they all seem to be fictional and childish renditions of numerous rival ‘gods’ who fight and smite each other like criminals on the loose, occasionally looking down upon mankind as worthless inferiors solely created for their amusement, and who were destined to be ruled by them due to their ‘Divine’ right of authority. This is far different than Genesis which depicts a singular, all-powerful, all-knowing, peaceful God surrounded by His Angels who wait silently and obediently for their Creator to complete His authentic creation of the material universe. Instead of laughing or mocking mankind, the God of Genesis blesses them and their fellow life-forms, the fish and the birds, thus making a concise distinction between life (living beings like plants, animals, and man) and death (inanimate objects like air, water, fire, and earth).

With this approach toward evolution, scriptural creation stories are typically interpreted as being allegorical in nature. Both Jews and Christians have considered the idea of the creation history as an allegory (instead of a historical description) long before the development of Darwin’s theory. An example in Christianity would be the earlier writings by St. Augustine (4th century)…Three noted Jewish examples are that of the writings of Philo of Alexandria (1st century), Maimonides (12th century) and Gersonides (13th century).

– Theistic Evolution, Wikipedia

Much unlike the rival Greco-Roman religion, which was eventually toppled by Christianity, the Hebrew God in Genesis does not bless the sun (Apollo), the moon (Diane), the planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter) at all. Tellingly, He only blesses the biological life-forms He has created. His blessing also includes a totally accurate prediction that mankind is destined to fill the earth with many different descendants and are intended to rule the lesser animals responsibly and wisely, just as He rules over man, His last and most God-like creation. What follows is a comparison between the Genesis Creation story and modern scientific fact which clearly shows the unbelievable, nearly miraculous, similarities between the two accounts:

RELIGION: In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.(Genesis 1:1-2)
SCIENCE: Modern Physics state that, before the Big Bang, reality was nothing than a singular point of darkness which had near infinite density and mass that eventually exploded, thus creating the known universe.

RELIGION: And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning- the first day.(Genesis 1:3-5)
SCIENCE: Modern Astrophysics now claim that the material universe started with a massive explosion of light and heat that filled the entire universe. (God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light). Over time, the light and energy subsided and either collapsed into stars or planets (God saw that the light was good) which continued to moved outwards in all directions (He separated the light from the darkness) and away from the initial Big Bang’s location. This continued expansion created more and more dark space (darkness), nearly void of all energy, in between all the steadily increasing number of stars and planets (light). Planets began to revolve around larger stars called suns which then rotated upon their axis, thus causing periodic intervals of light (God called the light ‘day’) and darkness (the darkness he called ‘night’).

RELIGION: God said, ‘Let there be a vault between the waters to separate the waters below from the waters above.’ So God made the vault and separated the waters under the vault from the waters above it. And it was so. God called the vault ‘sky.’ And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. (Genesis 1:6-8)
SCIENCE: Modern Meteorology and Geophysics contends that when Earth first began to form, a large amount of water was repeatedly lost into outer space (waters above the vault) as steam was constantly being spewed upward from the hot, unstable lava flows on the planet’s surface (separated the waters under the vault from the water above it). This process (separated the waters) continued until a viable atmosphere (a vault), which could retain all the water vapor rising upwards, eventually formed and became the blue sky (God called the vault ‘sky’). Then, because of all the steam being released from the depths of the earth (waters below) by volcanoes, a thick layer of clouds (waters above) finally covered the whole planet. This process occurred repeatedly over the course of hundreds of millions of years (separated the waters under the vault from the waters above it). Finally, all the water once released upwards as steam then finally became trapped underground indefinitely (waters below). This additional water (waters below) has remained there as volcanic activity has slowly subsided. Nonetheless, oceans (water under the vault) have continued to condensate and rise upward to form clouds (water above it) which then fall down again via the rain and snow called precipitation.

RELIGION: And God said, ‘Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.’ And it was so. God called the dry ground ‘land’, and the gathered waters he called ‘seas.’ And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:9-10)
SCIENCE: Modern Geology states that, at first, earth became a seething mass of lava (water) that began cooling into solid rock (dry ground). In time, the steam from tons upon tons of water trapped below ground caused torrential rains (gathered waters) which covered the earth (dry ground) with oceans. Because of all the initial violent volcanic activity on Earth’s surface, there was no permanent sea level or stable land mass to sustain life. Then a single mega-continent formed slowly, but permanently (the dry ground ‘land’) which was then completely surrounded by a gigantic single body of water (water…gathered to one place).

RELIGION: Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.’ And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning- the third day. (Genesis 1:11-13)
SCIENCE: Modern Evolutionary Biology claims that, even though simple single-cell life-forms, may have first formed underwater, the first multi-cellular complex life-forms to appear on earth were plants and trees (Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds’). Only during the past 2,000 years has man has confirmed scientifically that every distinct species of plants can only reproduce themselves. (The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds). Before then, the vast majority of people gathered fruit, nuts, berries, etc, from the wild because they never figured out how to keep their seeds, plant them (plants bearing seed according to their kinds), and grow enough crops to avoid starvation. Even in ancient Egypt, the most advanced civilization on earth at the time, most, if not all, of the Egyptians and enslaved Israelites, never knew that the seeds found in fruit must be buried in order to reproduce themselves. The cultivation of fruit and nuts, called orcharding (trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds) happens to be a fairly recent, post-Moses, discovery (And God saw that it was good).

Isn’t that interesting? Composed around 3,300 years ago, Genesis had told us that plants came before any animals, and now science has proved why that was true, because of the animals’ need for oxygen that the plants first created. Science is not confronting Genesis, but supporting it!

– Genesis and Science ARE Compatible!

RELIGION: And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.’ And it was so. God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. (Genesis 1:14-19)
SCIENCE: Modern Geophysics theorized that plant life on earth may have first appeared under a constant blanket of clouds that continued to obscure the stars and moon for millions of years, with the sun barely visible behind the dirty, ash-filled cloud cover. Indeed, this may well have been the case throughout the age of the dinosaurs and early mammals. For millions of years, primitive man had absolutely no sense of time or any idea about how to keep track of it. (God made two great lights-the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness). Besides for Mesopotamia (Abraham’s native civilization) Ancient Egypt was the only human society in the entire world (except East Asia) that had ever mapped the stars and actually realized their repetitive positions on a yearly schedule which corresponded to annual growing seasons for crops. Even so, only a miniscule number of elite magicians and ‘priests’ within Egypt had ever actually learned how to do this (God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years’). Most of man looked up and saw the lights as supernatural monsters or immortal gods ruling over them, not just inanimate, non-living lights that neither thought nor moved on their own (And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night’).

RELIGION: And God said, ‘Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.’ So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.’ And there was evening, and there was morning- the fifth day. (Genesis 1:20-23)
SCIENCE: Modern Biology is fairly confident that animal life first came into being in the oceans underwater. Dinosaurs came next and are said to be the early ancestors of all of today’s bird species (God blessed them and said, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth’). Fish and Dinosaurs filled the entire planet long before the appearance of any mammal. Some of the ocean’s animal life-forms were absolutely huge, even larger than any land-based dinosaur (So God created the great creatures of the sea) and existed long before them as well.

RELIGION: And God said, ‘Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.’ And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:24-25)
SCIENCE: Modern Zoology categorizes animals, all of whom bleed red blood, into distinct subgroups such herbivores (livestock), carnivores (wild animals) both of which are mammals, while distinguishing the birds and reptiles (creatures that move along the ground) as animals who are not, in fact, mammals (God said, ‘Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.’ And it was so). Evolutionary Biology is quite confident that warm-blooded mammals were the last type of animal to appear on earth long after plants, fish, and birds, or dinosaurs (God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds). While some rare individuals within ancient societies may have vaguely understood the modern theory of species, the vast majority had little idea that, for the most part, there are distinct species of animals that can only reproduce themselves through members of the exact same species. This includes very similar, nearly identical, types of species. Hawks cannot breed with eagles, cheetahs cannot breed with leopards, elk cannot breed with deer, and crocodiles with alligators (God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds). Moses, the author of Genesis, shows an incredible knowledge about scientifically-verifiable animal speciation, literally thousands of years before modern Zoology confirmed this reality (And God saw that it was good).

RELIGION: Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’ (Genesis 1:26-29)
SCIENCE: Modern biology is confident in their proclamation that man, the species called Homo Sapiens, was the last species to have ‘evolved’ on planet earth, long after every other life-form (So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them). While nearly every member of primitive society knew about the existence of many types of animals, the vast majority feared them, sometimes for good reason, and had absolutely no idea that within centuries man would have domesticated vast flocks, herds, and different breeds of many types of animals (God blessed them and said to them…’Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground’). At the same time, none of them would have ever imagined the accuracy of God’s ancient recommendation (or prediction) to increase in population and colonize every corner of the earth, eventually establishing huge cities on every single continent and among every major culture in the world today. (God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it). Man is unique is not knowing or identifying different individuals by smell (like an animal), but by looking at their facial features (our likeness) thus explaining the vast diversity of facial features found in every man, woman, and child (God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness). Molecular Biology has also discovered that male sperm contain exactly 50% male sperm (xy DNA) and 50% female sperm (xx DNA) (In the image of God he created them, male and female He created them).

Modern scientists need to stop being so instinctively anti-religion and open their minds to the poetic genius that Moses and his Book of Genesis can bring to today’s world once their arrogant ridicule and denial of the Judeo-Christian tradition comes to an end. The ‘primitive’ scientific accuracy metaphorically hidden in the Genesis Creation legend remains completely unexplainable, even now, yet can be clearly seen in black and white for all to see.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of the Judeo-Christian.

The Cornerstone, Part I.

The Stone the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone.
By the LORD has this been done this and it is wonderful
in our eyes.

– Psalm 118:22-23

Part. I. Seeing Eye to Eye about the Cornerstone

Welcome to the Cornerstone Series, a continuing set of articles and posts mostly about the Eye of the Pyramid and the Star of David. Here are just a few examples of what this mysterious symbol actually means when it comes to meeting eye to eye about metaphor and allusion:


Abel, the lamb slain since the foundation of the world.



Solomon was in a different category, because he ruled over the denizens of the upper world as well as of the lower. (Babylonian Talmud, Mo’ed IV, Megillah 11b)


The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. (Psalm 118:22)

 


So the LORD put a mark on Cain, lest anyone should kill him at sight. (Genesis 4:15)

 


The princes of Zoan have acted foolishly, the princes of Memphis are deluded. Those who are the cornerstone of her tribes have led Egypt astray.(Isaiah 19:13)

It forced all the people…to be given a mark on their right hand or their forehead, so that no one could buy or sell except one who had the mark of the beast. (Revelation 13:16-17)


The LORD says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.’ (Isaiah 28:16)


Solomon was in a different category, because he ruled over the denizens of the upper world as well as of the lower.(Babylonian Talmud, Mo’ed IV, Megillah 11b)

‘No rock will be taken from you for a cornerstone, nor any stone for a foundation, for you will be desolate forever,’ declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:26)

 


The gold that Solomon received every year weighed 666 gold talents. (I Kings 10:14)

 

Then I saw another angel…holding the seal of the living God. He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels…‘Do not damage the land or the sea or the trees until we put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.’ I heard the number of those who had been marked with the seal, one hundred and forty-four thousand marked from every tribe of the Israelites. (Revelation 7:2-4)

This calls for wisdom: let anyone with understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666. (Revelation 13:18)

 


Legend states that Christ was crucified with three 9 inch metal nails.


The calm, deceitful eye of Cain who was ‘a murderer from the beginning [and] when he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of all lies.’ (John 8:44)


Number 9, Number 9, Number 9. (Revloution, by the Beatles, the White Album)

 


God will wipe away tears from off all faces. This means from the faces of non-Jews as well as Jews. (Babylonian Talmud, Genesis Rabba 26)

Medical science tells us that, for whatever reason, our eyes actually see everything upside down. The brain is then required to reverse the images it receives, thus resulting in normal visual perception .

If all your life is given up to the pursuit of earthly things, it is quite consistent for you to look downwards; but if you pursue the higher life, look upwards. (Talmud, Midrash Psalms 32)


‘Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.’ (Genesis 4:11)

 

May the LORD God bless you in the name of the Judeo-Christian Tradition.

 

The Devil’s Bible, Part IV.

For the Devil too can quote Scripture…

– American Proverb

Part II. The Bible and the Bathroom

Some may just call it a case of metaphorical coincidence, or a dirty sense of humor, but the Bible does seem to include a few key passages that refer directly to indoor plumbing in general and to the steel (iron) flusher in particular found attached to literally all 20th Century toilets. Did the Prophets know about the modern world or were they given direct access to the most advanced systems of waste disposal available 2,000 years ago? It’s hard to say, but even Angels, and perhaps the Holy Ghost, can sympathize with mere mortals who must still obey the call of nature in a proper, civilized manner and hopefully raise all of their children to do the same. Here are the pertinent Biblical passages:

Toilet Training and Biblical Prophecy

TOILET TRAINING: A young mother gives birth to a baby boy who is destined to someday lose his diapers and become properly toilet-trained which includes the use of the steel flushing toggle.
PROPHECY: And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne. (Revelation 12:5)

TOILET TRAINING: She will teach him to use his left hand to wipe himself, and then flush it all down using the steel flush toggle into the sewer to be sanitized and properly disposed of
PROPHECY AND HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father. (Revelation 2:27)

The Proverbial Rod of Iron

TOILET TRAINING: Her Son may need Encouragement to Cure his Occasional Constipation
PROPHECY: You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery. (Psalm 2:9)

TOILET TRAINING: Sometimes vomiting and/or diarrhea may occur when the bathroom toilet should be immediately utilized and then flushed down using the steel toilet toggle.
PROPHECY: And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword with which He shall smite the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron; and He treadeth the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (Revelation 19:15)

The Rod of Iron

Cursed be the Devil, cursed be me.
