Aug 30, 2014 Has the church suplanted Israel as God’s chosen?

leave a comment »

This post by Pastor Bob is an eye opener of details for me. In particular the number 77 for both the mention of Israel and the church in the New Testament. The Lord has placed a burning love in my heart for both. At the beginning of this blog(http://twelvebooks.wordpress.com/2008/06/ ) I posted several times concerning the # 77 and how the Lord has used it with me.

One of the important statements of the post is about the city of Jerusalem. This city will have the seat of the ruler of the Universe Jesus Christ in the millenium. For this reason Satan who seeks to place his throne in the same place to dethrone Jesus will place the whole world against the Jews. The Antichrist possessed by Satan will defile and sit in the throne for the second half of the Tribulation (3 1/2 years or 1,260 days). The false prophet which I believe will be the last Pope in the Catholic church and that it could be Pope Francis will play a very powerful role as detailed in Revelation 13.

My position on the biggest Christian church in the world, the catholic church is that Satan does not have full control of it or its members, the clergy or the Cardinals and Bishops. They will oppose the infiltration and complete control of Satan till the Rapture occurs. Two names that come to mind recently are John Paul I who was poisoned when he was to expose the cabal of Masonic Luciferian Cardinals at the Vatican. Another dearly admired by me is the ex Jesuit Malachi Martin who was also pushed down the stairs where he lived and killed.

All the Christian churches of the world and all the denominations have been infiltrated in one way or the other to some degree by Satan and his minions. Pastor Bob you have mentioned this fact before and I agree with that opinion.

“Compare and Contrast Israel and the Church”


All Doves:
 
The Apostle Paul in 1st Corinthians 10:32 offered an vital axiom that provides more than anecdotal evidence that there is a distinction drawn in the Bible on the behalf of the differences between Israel, the Gentiles, and the Church.  Biblically speaking, in God’s Master Plan of Redemption for the world, “Give none offence, neither to the Jew, or the the Gentile, nor to the Church of God.”  In stating this out of context, let me just add that the entire 10th chapter of 1st Corinthians buttresses this explicit distinction, that many prefer to choose to ignore in order to protect their anti-Semitic bias.
 

Israel and the Church are “two distinctively and different entities”, each with a different framework of reference, purposes, goals, promises, and blessings.  This will be seen in the long list below that compares and contrasts the entity of Israel and the entity of the Church.The facts are indisputable in this regards, Israel is mentioned 2,566 times in 2,294 verses of the Bible, in both the Old and New Testament.  In contrast, the Church is mentioned 77 times in 76 verses.  As noted in another post, the Church is not mentioned until Matthew 16:18.  The Gospel of Matthew only mentions the Church twice.

Consider where we find the 77 references to the Church in the New Testament:

Acts – 19X
Romans – 3X
1st Corinthians – 16X
2nd Corinthians – 1X
Galatians – 1X
Ephesians – 9X
Philippians – 2X
Colossians – 4X
1st Thessalonians – 5X
Philemon – 1X
Hebrews – 2X
James – 1X
1st Peter – 1X
3rd John – 3X
Revelation – 7X

Consider which New Testament books do not mention the Church and ponder why so?  I’ll let that task be your job to consider.

In another post I offered a “Compare and Contrast Between the Rapture and the Second Coming”.  This will be well worth the reader saving for reference.  It like the other post will prove important when you have to deal with explaining the difference between Israel and the Church, or the Rapture and the Second Coming.

Most importantly, the usage of the word “Israel” in the New Testament needs to be noted.  The term Israel is used 77 times in the New Testament.  Not once is it used, in relation to or of the Church, including Galatians 6:16.

The wags at the “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” site are regular posters of the anti-Semitic author, Joe Ortiz, who wrote two books on the topic, ‘The End Times Passover’ and ‘Will Christians Experience Great Tribulation’.  I consider Joe Ortiz a brain-washed ex-Catholic.  He is a prodigy of Roman Catholic education, where the “Fear of God” is drilled into a child.  He has Roman Catholic demons in his psyche.  Catholic education – (“AGR”) is “AuthorityGroup ThinkRidicule ” based.   Catholic Jesuit education dictates:

++ Do not question the Catholic Church’s authority!
++ Do not deviate from the Catholic Church “group-think”!
++ Ridicule all individualism or independent thinking that goes against Roman Catholic Doctrine!

He left Catholicism during his teenage years, but Catholicism’s demons still hold him in the clutches of their bondage.  He is, as the Jesuits’ state, “a Catholic for life”.  Mike Gendron is an Evangelical Protestant evangelist (ex-Roman Catholic) who conducts a ministry, ‘Proclaiming the Gospel’ to Roman Catholics.  He knows the methods of brain-washing conducted by Roman Catholic clergy and nuns.

The major perpetrators of anti-Semitism, in the form of “Replacement” theology was Roman Catholicism under Constantine and then later under Augustine, and it has prevailed in much of the non-Christian world ever since.  It began “Replacement” theology and has worked every angle possible to wrest and take control over physical Jerusalem.  There is ample proof of how the Vatican is using its power to accomplish this Satanic goal.  It is the only avenue for the Antichrist to gain control of the sacred Hebrew sites.  In spite of the diplomacy and endearing terms towards Israel today, Rome will continue to work its plan to take over control of the locations revered and sacred to Jews and Christians.

Until you understand the spiritual battle being waged that has existed for control over Jerusalem for nearly 2,000 years, you will not understand the larger picture, as to why nearly fifty wars have been fought over the land of Jerusalem since long before Jesus walked the land, or which is revealed in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9, nor will you understand why Roman Catholicism is such a curse on the world, and particularly, Biblical Judaism.  Satan’s mandate is to destroy every living Jew, even if he has to use his minions to provoke the world against ALL Judaism, true and false.

As I noted, Joe Ortiz states in his book that he was raised and educated (brain-washed) as a Roman Catholic but left Catholicism when he was a teenager.  Enough said about what I stated previously about Catholic education.  His very first chapter of the book has devoted close to 100 pages to “Replacement” theology or the theological term “Supersessionism”.  He devotes nearly 100 pages of his book, 1/5th of the book to the take-down of Israel.  But he carefully couches his words so as not to reveal specifically that term, or that he is against Israel.  His book is full of contradictions despite the fact he says that it took him 20 years to write it.  It is published by a vanity press (which means to be self-published in the publishing industry).

Joe Ortiz is obsessed with his “Replacement” theology, as much if not more than the pope himself. In spite of the fact that he is not a theologian, and often he fails to back up his view with relevant Scripture references, his bigotry is like an over-sized red traffic signal light.  He does not hesitate to tell his reader that he has studied the Biblical text using common translator lexicons and wordsmiths such as ‘Vine’s’ and others.  But from having read his book online, his weakness in both the English text and the Biblical languages is revealed by his lack of familiarity with Greek and Hebrew in order to understand the nuances of the Biblical texts that are not obviously explicit, but rather implied, inferred, and presented in the form of typology and thematic literature.  In Judaism, there is an expression, “three Jews, means four opinions”.  This occurs because Hebrew is a living dynamic language, which he obviously does not seem to grasp.

I have taken the time to read Joe Ortiz’s first book, available on line; but if you read the “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” web site, where you can read it, posted in segments, and in full, as a rebuttal to those of us who hold a Pre-Tribulation Rapture position.  Lacking a cogent, and cohesive case for his diatribe, he hides behind “proof-texting”, and not always accurate at that.  Joe is a P.R. man and knows how to hype his book using blog sites and “proof-texting” as a way to support his unusual theory, and yet claims his book refutes definitively the Pre-Trib position.  From the wags at the “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” site, it is evident and quite obvious they have bought into his P.R. press accolades, hook, line, and sinker.  Read the Amazon.com P.R. blurb for his book-hype and you will see what I am referring to.

Joe Ortiz claims Jesus was not a Jew.  He mailed a video to a number of Christian web sites that reflects his anti-Semitism bias and bigotry.  The video was titled “How the Jews Stole Christmas”.  He mailed it out just prior to the Christmas 2012 season.  The timing could not have been anything more than a ploy other than to gain shock impact with the recipients getting Joe Ortiz’s gift video two days before Christmas.  The video was fallacious on a number of levels.  Joe believed that Jesus was Aramaic, a proof-positive indicator he didn’t know as much as he thought about Jews.  Here is a quote just below, that he made to one of those that disagreed with him about Jesus earthly ethnic identity:

[[Joe:  "He was?  I thought he was Aramaic, but born in the area known as Judah?  Did he practice what is written in the Talmud?  Isn't that what it means to be Jewish?"]]

In this brief quote from a reply to a published Christian author and scholar, Joe Ortiz revealed his total lack of basic Jewish knowledge and understanding of what it means to be a Jew:

++
He [Joe Ortiz] didn’t know Jews are people descendant from Jacob, such as David, and Jesus, clearly told in          the Matthew and Luke genealogies.

++ Aramaic is a language, not a race of people.

++ The Talmud came into use after the destruction of the Temple many years later.

Jesus is even explicitly described as being from the Tribe of Judah – a true Jew even in the original usage of the term:  “And one of the elders said to me, “weep no more; behold, the lion of  the tribe of Judah, the root of David has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”  -(Revelation 5:5).

To my recollection, all scholarly lexicons shows that the New Testament used the word “Jew” for all 12 tribes that descended from Jacob.  In the New Testament era “Jew” was equivalent and interchangeable to the term “Israelite” or “Hebrew”.

The word “WE” in John 4:22 is inclusive, We worship which we know, for salvation is from the Jews.” According to John, Jesus said that and His use of “WE” is His identification as a Jew.  Joe Ortiz’s words confront us with a major dilemma:

1.  The Bible has an error and Jesus never said it.
2.  Salvation comes from the Jews but Jesus was not a Jew.
3.  Salvation is through Christ alone as the Jewish Messiah.

There is no doubt that Joe Ortiz believes that because Jesus’ statement in John 4:21-22 infers that God used the Jewish people to deliver His Word and to incarnate Himself as the Jewish Messiah.  Furthermore, the New  and Old Testament were written by Jewish people except for Luke who penned Luke/Acts and of course, the primary dispute, that Jesus was an ethnic Jew.  So in that sense salvation was delivered to humanity through the Jews.

One of the wags at the “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” site quoted a statement on their site, on August 14th, 2014, that “The Church DID NOT begin on the day of Pentecost.”  That statement speaks volumes about the hosts of the “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” site.  It is such an absurd statement and a reflection of profound Biblical illiteracy on the part of the wag over there.  The wag went on to quote Mr. Ortiz.  The wag shows a regular lack of basic Bible knowledge, but even more, a far greater egregious proclamation of arrogance to call God a liar, and to defile the Word of God.  My post here was provoked by the wag’s statement that the Church did not begin on the day Pentecost!  That is absolutely NOT true.  It is a boldface lie!

There is so much more that identifies Mr. Ortiz as a brain-washed ex-Roman Catholic anti-Semite.  To devote one-fifth of his book to attacking Israel, in the first chapter of the book, truly reflects where he stands on Israel.  Today, there are so many that misinterpret the Bible, misapply, misuse, or fail to differentiate the distinction between Israel and the Church, and thus, they merely prove they are either ignorant, illiterate, or bigots, or all of named adjectives.

Keep your ears tuned to listen for the trumpet call,

Have a blessed week in the Lord’s presence.

Aug 30, 2014 The rapture and the second coming, two distinct events

leave a comment »

This article was posted by pastor Bob in fivedoves.com and explains with references the very important distinction between the Rapture and the Second Coming. Thank you Pastor Bob for this excellent comparison. I concur with your assessment that it leads to the conclusion of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church.

“Compare and Contrast The Rapture and The Second Coming”


All Doves:There are many people that still dispute the issue of a Rapture of Bible-believing Christians.  While I have focused my posts on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture, much of the liberal Church today rejects the very idea of such a Rapture of Bible-believing Christians.  The folks that come from a “Covenant/Reformed” hermeneutic, which represents 90% of the Church – Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, United Presbyterians, United Methodists, Nazarenes, Wesleyans, Christian, Church of Christ, Reformed Presbyterian, and a few others are so confused they can’t seem to recognize the difference between the Rapture and the Second Coming.

I majored in Civil Engineering for two years before transferring to a Christian College, in preparation for ministry that required its students to write essay type questions for all exams because they believed essay exams better prepared a student for graduate school.  I could bet money that would be the fact that any exam I took would begin with the question, “Compare and Contrast………..”  I had two semesters of Russian History, and my final exam for the second class was, “Compare and Contrast the Causes of the Russian Revolution of 1917″.  That was it, just a single question.  I had two hours to answer that one question.  I filled up five “blue” books, that were used in college written exams back in the 1960’s.

I thought it might be helpful for the reader if we did a “compare and contrast” between the Rapture and the Second Coming.  There are 28 distinctions between the two that follow below.  I just hope they line up like I typed them:

The Rapture:                                                                            The Second Coming:

1.  At the Rapture, Jesus comes FOR His Church.                   1.  At the Glorious Appearing (Second Coming),
(John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17).                                   Jesus comes WITH His Church.  (Zechariah

3.  At the Rapture, Christians are taken first and                      3.  At the Glorious Appearing, the wicked are taken
unbelievers are left behind.  (1 Thessalonians                         first, but the righteous (the Tribulation saints)
4:13-18).                                                                                   are left behind.  (Matthew 13:28-30).

4.  At the Rapture, Jesus will gather His Bride, the                   4. At the Glorious Appearing, Jesus will execute

Revelation 19:11-21).

5.  The Marriage of the Lamb takes place in                             5.  War on Earth comes AFTER the Marriage of

15:51-54).                                                                                 14:4-5; Revelation 1:7, 19:11-21).

10.The Rapture can happen at any time … maybe                  10. The Glorious Appearing will occur at the end of
even now which is why we are to be WATCHING                     seven-year Tribulation period.  (Daniel 9:24-27;
for the return of Christ Jesus!  (Revelation 3:3;                         Matthew 24:29-30; 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-8).
1st Thessalonians 5:4-6).

11. At the Rapture, no angels are sent to gather                      11. At the Glorious Appearing, angels will be sent
the Church.                                                                                to gather people together for judgment.
(Matthew 13:39,41 & 49; Matthew 24:31;
Matthew 25:31; 2nd Thessalonians 1:7-10).

12. At the Rapture, those who died in Christ Jesus                  12. At the Glorious Appearing, Christians will return
will return with Jesus to recover their resurrected                       with Jesus already in their resurrected bodies
bodies.  (1st Thessalonians 4:14-16).                                       riding on white horses.  (Revelation 19:11-21).

13. At the Rapture, Jesus doesn’t return riding                         13. At the Glorious Appearing, Jesus will return
a white horse.                                                                            riding a white horse.   (Revelation 19:11).

14. The Rapture will bring with it a message of hope                14. The Glorious Appearing will bring with it a
and comfort.  (1st Thessalonians 4:18; Titus 2:13;                    message of judgment.  (Joel 3:12-16;
1st John 3:3).                                                                             Malachi 4:5; Revelation 19:11-21).

15. The world is deceived.  (2nd Thessalonians 2:3-12).          15. Satan is bound.  (Revelation 20:1-2).

Aug 29, 2014 Putin tells adversaries to remember Russia has a lot of nuclear weapons in their arsenal

leave a comment »

The apocalyptic language of the book of Revelation ( http://biblehub.com/kjv/revelation/1.htm ) would be hard to understand absent the technological advances found in the world at the present time. Nuclear weapons are at the forefront of the threat facing humanity in today’s world. It is hard to imagine any all out military attack between powerful nations that could be successful absent the introduction of these weapons. Islam is not in the dark of this knowledge and it drives many Islamic countries in the pursuit of these powerful weapons.

In the article below Putin reminds the reader of the fact that Russia is in possession of such an advance large arsenal and will not hesitate in using them. This threat is implied in his statement.

Ezekiel 38-39 sees Gog (Russia) allied with Persia and other Islamic nations with the intent of taking Israel.

Don’t mess with nuclear Russia, Putin says

Ukraine Conflict: Russia Escalates War of Words

Ukraine Conflict: Russia Escalates War of Words

LAKE SELIGER Russia (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Friday Russia’s armed forces, backed by its nuclear arsenal, were ready to meet any aggression, declaring at a pro-Kremlin youth camp that foreign states should understand: “It’s best not to mess with us.”

Putin told the assembly, on the banks of a lake near Moscow, the Russian takeover of Crimea in March was essential to save a largely Russian-speaking population from Ukrainian government violence. He said continued fighting in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists launched an uprising in April, was the result of a refusal by Kiev to negotiate.

Ukraine, and Western governments, accuse Russia of sending troops and armor to back the separatists in a conflict that has already killed over 2,000 people. Russia denies the charge.

“Russia is far from being involved in any large-scale conflicts,” he said at the camp on the banks of Lake Seliger. “We don’t want that and don’t plan on it. But naturally, we should always be ready to repel any aggression towards Russia.

“Russia’s partners… should understand it’s best not to mess with us,” said Putin, dressed casually in a grey sweater and light blue jeans.

“Thank God, I think no one is thinking of unleashing a large-scale conflict with Russia. I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers.”

Putin spoke easily with the students, many of whom looked to be asking scripted questions about demography and history. Other times he accepted gifts or, smilingly, played down their praise.

When a student said that she had not heard a single negative comment about Putin’s presidency from camp speakers, he responded with a grin that “objectivity” was important.

His tone darkened when speaking on Ukraine, blaming the United States and the European Union for the “unconstitutional” removal of Kiev’s former Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovich and replacement with a pro-European government.

He said eastern Ukraine did not agree with Yanukovich’s removal and was now subjected to “crude military force” from government planes, tanks and artillery.

“If those are contemporary European values, then I’m simply disappointed in the highest degree,” he said, comparing Ukraine’s military operations in the east of the country with the Nazi siege of Leningrad in World War Two.

“Small villages and large cities surrounded by the Ukrainian army which is directly hitting residential areas with the aim of destroying the infrastructure… It sadly reminds me of the events of the Second World War, when German fascist… occupiers surrounded our cities.”

Aug 29, 2014 ISIS and Islam a threat to all by JD Farag

leave a comment »

Islam has been a threat to Western civilization and the world since the time of Mohamed. There are two branches of Islam and both present a mortal danger to democracies and the rest of the non Muslim world.

Islam mascarades as a religion of peace while the Qumran tells the opposite. It is a brutal dictatorship with the intent of world conquest and domination. In areas where it dominates it becomes and imposes a government with sharia law. People are forced to submit to their system or become slaves. It treats women and non Muslims as lower than animals.

The danger is real and free societies should rally to pass laws that forbid Islam in all its forms. The basis for this assessment is that Islam promotes the killing and enslavement of subjects. They can not co-exist with other humans who do not promote their ideology or religion and they kill and maim to obtain their goals of domination. Is Islam the only peril in the world today, no!!!, but it is the one who is attracting the most attention.

There is also the threat of those who want to impose a one world government and impose a dictator whom we call the Antichrist. Behind these forces we can find Satan who will use Islam to start a WWIII that will give the opportunity to these behind the scene people to conquer the world.

What is going on at the moment is the preamble of the time known in the Bible as the Apocalypse which will last seven years of 360 days each.

Jesus Christ returns to earth at the end of this period and will purge the nations of all evil doers. Then the one thousand year kingdom of Jesus Christ will start.

 

August 25, 2014 The veracity of the Bible by the number 7

with 3 comments

This post by pastor Bob covers a subject that most Bible believers do not know and it is the use of the number seven to verify God as the author of the Word as shown in the Bible. Thanks very much pastor Bob.

Not to long ago some other Israeli mathematicians proved using computers and mathematics that encoded in the plain text of the Torah there is a code that contains the names and history of major persons and events in the history of the world. This phenomenon was made popular by the book the Bible Code by Michael Drosnin.

I have always used the number 77 and 777 as a means of communicating with God. The last time this happened was about an hour ago. I had just visited the engineering company I worked many years ago and was giving a testimony of this blog and that Obama was the Antichrist and that Pope Francis was the false prophet and gave them the blog name and address. Returning home on Miller street and the Palmetto Expressway I stopped for a red light and the car beside me had a license plate BUE 777 which was a confirmation to me of the correctness of my testimony less than 4 minutes after leaving them. God is wonderful and encouraging.

“God’s Heptadic Signature -1″


All Doves:Unfortunately, the information to follow is virtually unknown, to most of the world.  All be it for computer geeks, mathematicians, and Bible linguists you would probably never hear of this amazing information anywhere.  The Bible, specifically, the King James Bible, contains a numerical pattern design known as a “Heptadic” design.  It is God’s Signature of authentication.

The numerical structure of the Holy Bible has been studied closely in the past, and is the subject of numerous volumes of writings.  None are more provocative than the works of Dr. Ivan Panin.  His signature work was ‘The Inspiration of the Scriptures Scientifically Demonstrated’.

Ivan Panin was born in Russia on December 12, 1855.  Having participated in plots against the Czar, he was exiled from his homeland at an early age.  After studying in Germany for some years, he came to the United States and entered Harvard University.  He graduated from Harvard in 1882 and made the conversion from agnosticism to Christianity.  He made a discovery in 1890 that showed a phenomenal mathematical design underlying both the Greek text of the New Testament and the Hebrew text of the Old Testament.  From that point on Ivan Panin devoted over 50 years of his life to exploring the numerical structure of the Scriptures, generating over 43,000 pages of detailed hand-penned pages of analysis notes.

The discovery became known as the “Heptadic Structure” of the Bible.  The recurrence of the number “seven” – or exact multiples of seven – is found throughout the KJV Bible.  The Sabbath on the seventh day; the seven years of plenty, and the seven years of famine in Egypt, the seven priests and seven trumpets marching around Jericho; the Sabbath Year of the land.  All are well-known examples of the number “seven” found in the Scriptures.  Don’t forget the “seven” years it took Solomon to build the Temple, and Naaman washing in the river “seven” times.  Then the book of Revelation is filled with the surface pattern of “sevens”.

To the general population, and even the Christian community, these patterns appear as some sort of a riddle or strange joke.  However, there is a much deeper meaning to the number “seven” as Ivan Panin discovered.  There are amazing numerical properties hidden within the Biblical texts – both the Old Testament Hebrew and the New Testament Greek of the Textus Receptus manuscripts – that not only demonstrate an intricacy of design but also testifies to a “supernatural” origin!

One of the simplest and most provocative aspects of the Biblical text is the vocabulary used to compose it.  The number of vocabulary words in a passage is normally different from the total number of words in a passage: some words are repeated.  It is easy, for example, to use a vocabulary of 500 words to write an essay of 4,000 words.

As an example, the first 17 verses of the Gospel of Matthew are a logical unit, or section, which deals with a single principal subject: “the genealogy of Christ”.  These initial 17 verses (the verse divisions were added in the 13th cenury for convenience) contain 72 Greek vocabulary words that are authenticated as God’s inspired Word through their “Heptadic” structure.  However, this numerical structure only work’s with the original Greek – the Textus Receptus – from which the King James Bible was translated.  The “Westcott and Hort Greek New Testament” (from which all other Bible versions were translated) add “Achaz/Ahaz” in Matthew 1:9, thereby voiding the numerical authentication and proving it to be a counterfeit.  Stop right here for a moment.

I have answered a basic question that the reader will naturally ask, “why hasn’t the Christian world learned of this information?”   Publishers of other Bibles, such as Thomas Nelson or Zondervan, and the several Bible Societies would quickly lose profits from lost sales of Bibles translated from the corrupt Greek text of Wescott and Hort if this became widely known in the world.

The following is a sample of he Matthew 1:1-17 “Heptadic “seven” structure” discovered by Ivan Panin:

1.   The number of words which are nouns is exactly 56 times, or 7 x 8.
2.   The Greek word “the” occurs most frequently in the passage exactly 56 times, or 7 x 8.
3.   The number of different forms in which the article “the” occurs exactly 7 times.
4.   There are two main sections in the passage:  verse 1-11 and 12-17.  In the first main section, the number of             Greek vocabulary words used is 49, or 7 x 7.
5.   Of these 49 words, the number of those beginning with a vowel is 28, or 7 x 4.
6.   The number of word beginning with a consonant is 21, or 7 x 3.
7.   The total number of letters in these 49 words is exactly 266, or 7 x 38-exactly.
8.   The number of vowels among these 266 letters is 140, or 7 x 20.
9.   The number of consonants is 126, or 7 x 18-exactly.
10. Of these 49 word, the number of words which occur more than once is 35, or 7 x 5.
11. The number of words occurring only once is 14, or 7 x 2.
12. The number of words which occur in only one form is exactly 42, or 7 x 6.
13. The number of words appearing in more than one form is also 7.
14. The number of 49 Greek vocabulary words which are nouns is 42, or 7 x 6.
15. The number of words which are not nouns is 7.
16. Of the nouns, 35 are proper names, or 7 x 5.
17. These 35 nouns are used 63 times, or 7 x 9.
18. The number of male names is 28, or 7 x 4.
19. These male names occur 56 times, or 7 x 8.
20. The number which are not male names is 7.
21. Three women are mentioned – Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth.  The number of Greek letters in these three names is         14, or 7 x 2.
22, The number of compound nouns is 7.
23. The number of Greek letters in these 7 nouns is 49, or 7 x 7.
24. Only one city is named in this passage, Babylon, which in Greek contains exactly 7 letters.

Those are just a few of the many Heptadic “sevens” structures that authenticate the King James Bible as God’s inspired Word.  And to help you understand the uniqueness of these properties, try to design a genealogy – even a fictional one – that meets the following criteria:

1.  The number of words must be divisible by 7 evenly.  (In each of these constraints, it is assumed that the                     divisions are without remainders).
2.  The number of letters must also be divisible by 7.
3.  The number of vowels and the number of consonants must be divisible by 7.
4.  The number of words that begin with a vowel must be divisible by 7.
5.  The number of words that begin with a consonant must be divisible by 7.
6.  The number of words that occur more than once must be divisible by 7.
7.  The number of words that occur in more than one form must be divisible by 7.
8.  The number of words that occur in only one form shall be divisible by 7.
9.  The number of nouns shall be divisible by 7.
10. Only 7 words shall not be nouns.
11. The number of names in the genealogy shall be divisible by 7.
12. Only 7 other kinds of nouns are permitted.
13. The number of male names shall be divisible by 7.
14. The number of generations shall be 21, also divisible by 7.

Amazing as that might be, there are even more features in the numerical structure of the words themselves.  Both the Hebrew and Greek language also use the letters of the alphabet for numerical values.  Therefore, any specific word – either in Hebrew or Greek – has a numerical value of its own by adding up he values of the letters in that particular word.  The study of the numerical values of words is called gammantria or gematria.

The 72 vocabulary words in Matthew 1:1-17 add up to a gammantrical value of 42,364, or 7 x 6,052.  Exactly!  If one Greek letter was changed, this would not happen.

The 72 words appear in 90 forms – some appear in more than one form.  The numeric value of the 90 forms is 54,075, or 7 x 7,725.  Exactly!

It becomes immediately obvious that hidden below the surface are aspects of design that cannot be accidental or just coincidence.  Remember, the rabbis say that “coincidence” is not a kosher word!

In my next post, I will pick up with the second portion of the Matthew text I began with here above.

There are two books in print that discuss this topic from different perspectives, and they are:

‘Theomatics’ by Del Washburn
‘373 – A Proof Set In Stone’ by Dr. Peter Bluer

Not to be overlooked is the work of Mike Hoggard, ‘The King James Code’.  This book is an excellent introductory level book of understanding the pattern of the “Heptadic Design Feature”.  It is not technical or mathematical and provides anyone interested in this theme a basic understanding of God’s omnipotence  Mike Hoggard also has a second book titled ‘By Divine Order’.  Another basic book is Ed Vallowe’s book, ‘Biblical Mathematics’.  Ed Vallowe’s book goes through the meaning of Biblical numbers from 1 to a thousand.  All three of these are available from Amazon or independent Christian book stores.  Don’t even try to order these titles from Family Christian Stores.  FCS or FBS, its original name are owned by Zondervan Publishing.  They have a vested interest, as he copyright owner of the NIV Translation, not to publicize anything that exposes the corrupt modern Bible versions.

I realize that this may be too overwhelming for the average reader; however, I have been studying this topic for more than three decades, and long ago concluded what the group ‘Computers for Christ’ at Stanford University have confirmed by computer and mathematical analysis to be true. – that the only true Bible is the King James Bible.  I correspond with Dr. Bluer through the Internet and keep abreast of his continuing research.  Dr. Bluer is an “honors” Ph.D. mathematician at a university in the UK.

During my last years as a resident pastor of a church I authored a copyrighted worship bulletin insert series that provided Biblical and theological knowledge.  I did over 800, and many of them were devoted to the invisible “seven” in the Bible.  I’ll explain.

The Bible contains visible “sevens” as follows:

++ The word “seven”        463 occurrences in 391 verses
++ The word “sevenfold”      6 occurrences in 5 verses
++ The word “sevens”          2 occurrences in 2 verses
++ The word “seventeen”   10 occurrences in 10 verses
++ The word “seventeenth”  6 occurrences in 6 verses
++ The word “seventh”     120 occurrences in 115 verses
++ The word “seventy”       61 occurrences in 60 verses
A total of 668 times

There are 200+ of the invisible “sevens” such as the “seven” miracles recorded in the Gospel of John.  John only identifies “seven” miracles performed by Jesus Christ, while the other Gospel writers record many more, with Matthew recording the most.  There is a reason why John only records “seven” such miracles.  I’ll discuss it more later on the incredible authentication signature of the Creator.

Have a blessed day in the Lord’s presence,

“God’s Heptadic Signature -2″


All Doves:In this post we are going to be looking at the second portion of the Matthew 1:18-25 passage to illustrate the Divine “Heptadic” Design Structure or Feature, that serves to authenticate who the real Author of the Bible is.

Continuing on with the first chapter of Matthew, take a look at the pattern of “seven” in verses 18-25.  This is also a logical unit, or section, which deals with a single principal subject: “the history of Christ’s birth.”  These 8 verses contain 77 Greek vocabulary words that are authenticated as God’s inspired Word through their “Heptadic” structure.  And, once again, this numbering structure only work’s with the original Greek – “Textus Receptus” – from which the King James Bible was translated.  No, it does not work with the Geneva Bible if you are wondering.  The “Westcott and Hort Greek Text” (from which all other modern Bible versions were translated) omits the phrase “her firstborn” (in Greek “autos prototokos”) in verse 25, thereby voiding the numerical authentication and proving it a counterfeit.  Let’s stop for a moment right here.

Can you guess why the “Wescott and Hort” new Greek text left out this expression “her firstborn”?  It was done to protect Roman Catholic doctrine that teaches Mary did not have other children.  Wescott and Hort were pro-Roman Catholic Anglican priests and bishops.  Those that have done exhaustive research and study of what Wescott and Hort did to perpetuate a fraud, with their new Greek text, on such a massive scale in eliminate anything that would call into question Roman Catholic doctrine and teaching.

The significance of this is found in the fact that God’s “Heptadic” Design would not replicate itself in the corrupted Greek and Hebrew manuscripts, as well as in the English translations.  Only the Greek “Textus Receptus” and the Hebrew Masoretic text faithfully reveal God’s inspiration.  In my Bible courses, especially the Gospels, as students, we had to outline the content on large 12″ x 18″ graph paper as part of our weekly assignments.  Lesson assignments throughout the time frame duration of the course, were dealt with in chapter form.  Just like elementary school, we had to break down each verse using proper grammar principles.  I used the Greek and Hebrew to substantiate the verse diagramming work in English to support the English text.  To the best of my knowledge, it is rare for seminary students today to be required to do basic linguistic and grammar diagramming of the text.

To this point, I have identified two reasons why the “Heptadic” Design is not touched by the Christian community:

In part 1, I noted that it could curtail and impact the sale of the modern counterfeits if the public knew about this being a means of validating God’s inspired Word.  Then, secondly, above, I noted how a corrupt Greek text was used for all modern translations to benefit the Roman Catholic Church doctrine of Mariology.

Here follows the material that Ivan Panin found in Matthew 1:18-25 and the existence of the “Heptadic” Design Factor:

1.  The number of words in the seven word passages is 161, or 7 x 23.
2.  The number of vocabulary words is 77, or 7 x 11.
3,  Six Greek words occur only in this passage and never again in Matthew.  These six Greek words contain                 precisely 56 letters, or 7 x 8.
4.  The number of distinct proper names in the passage is 7.
5.  The number of Greek letters in these seven proper names is 42, or 7 x 6.
6.  The number of words spoken by the angel to Joseph is 28, or 7 x 4.
7.  The number of Greek forms of words used in this passage is 161, or 7 x 23.
8.  The number of Greek forms of words in the angel’s speech is 35, or 7 x 5.
9.  The number of letters in the angel’s 35 forms of words is 168, or 7 x 24.

There are words in Matthew’s passage just described that occur nowhere else in the New Testament.  They occur 42 times, or 7 x 6; and have 126 letters, or 7 x 18.  How was this organized, if not by God, for the skeptic?

Even if Matthew contrived this characteristic into his Gospel, how could he have known that these specific words – whose sole characteristic is that they are found nowhere else in the New Testament – were not going to be used by the other writers?  Unless we assume the absurd hypothesis that he had an agreement with them, he must have had the rest of the New Testament before him when he wrote his book.  This would mean that the Gospel of Matthew had to be written last.

It so happens, however, that the Gospel of Mark exhibits the same phenomenon.  It can be demonstrated that it would have had to be written “last”.  The same phenomenon is also found in Luke, John, James, Peter, Jude and Paul.  Each would have had to write after the other in order to contrive the vocabulary frequencies!  Therefore, you can demonstrate that each of the New Testament books had to have been “written last”.

There is no human explanation for this incredible and precise structure.  It has all been “supernaturally” designed.  In the next post in this series, we will examine the evidence of this function as it is found in the first book of the Bible, Genesis.  The “Heptadic” Structural Design Feature has been tested by Biblical linguists on the Apocrypha and not one of the spurious books of the Apocrypha reveal in any way, this Divine Signature Authentication.

Another excellent resource on the general theory concerning Bible numerics is the 7-volume work of F.W. Grant, ‘The Numerical Bible’.  For some odd reason, I never purchase the set, however, I do access it through the Princeton Theological Seminary library in research work.  It is nearly 700-pages long and was originally published in 1897.  F.W. Grant died in 1902.

May your week ahead be richly blessed.

“God’s Heptadic Signature -3″


All Doves:In this post on “God’s Heptadic Signature” we will be looking at its existence in Genesis 1:1.  In the Hebrew text of Genesis 1:1, Ivan Panin carefully examined and discovered an incredible phenomenon of multiples of “Seven” that could not been explained by accident or random chance.  Genesis 1:1 is composed of “seven” Hebrew words containing a total of 28 letters.  In this very first of the Bible, Ivan Panin discovered 30 separate codes involving the number “seven”, with the following being only a partial list:

1.   The number of Hebrew words equal “seven”.
2.   The number of letters equal 28, or 7 x 4.
3.   The first three Hebrew words translated “In the beginning God created” contain 14 letters, or 7 x 2.
4.   The last four Hebrew words “the heaven and the earth” have 14 letters, or 7 x 2.
5.   The fourth and fifth words have seven letters.
6.   The sixth and seventh words have seven letters.
7.   The three key words:  God, heaven and  earth have 14 letters, or 7 x 2.
8.   The number of letters in the four remaining words is also 14, or 7 x 2.
9.   The shortest word in the verse is the middle word with “seven” letters.
10. The Hebrew numeric value of the first, middle and last letters is 133, or 7 x 19.
11. The Hebrew numeric value of the first and last letters of all “seven” words is 1393, or 7 x 199.

When professors of the mathematics faculty at Harvard University were presented with this Biblical phenomenon they naturally attempted to disprove its significance as a proof of divine authorship.  However, after valiant efforts these professors were unable to to duplicate this incredible mathematical phenomenon.  The Harvard scientists and mathematicians used the English language and artificially assigned numeric values to the English alphabet.  They had a potential vocabulary of over 400,000 available English words to choose from to construct to construct a sentence about any topic they chose.  Compare this to the limitations of word choices in the Biblical Hebrew language that has only 4,500 words choices available that the writers of the Old Testament could use.  Despite their advanced mathematical abilities and access to computers available today, computer and mathematicians have since been unable to come close to incorporating 30 mathematical multiples of “seven” as found in the Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1.

The fact is the number “seven” permeates the totality of Scripture because the number speaks of God’s divine perfection and perfect order.  Ivan Panin discovered literally thousands of such mathematical patterns underlying all of the books of the Old and New Testament before his death in 1942.  As I recall, Panin offered a financial prize, the amount escapes my memory at the moment, but the prize went unclaimed.  He ran a large page ad in the ‘New York Sun’ and other newspapers, but no one had claimed the prize nor could explain his discovery.  The story soon was overtaken by other news that pushed Ivan Panin’s discoveries to the pages of old news and ultimately into oblivion.

These patterns Ivan Panin discovered appear in the vocabulary, grammatical forms, parts of speech, and particular forms of words.  When you consider the incredible details of this mathematical phenomenon you realize that the change of a single letter or word in the original languages of Greek and Hebrew would destroy the pattern.  Now you can understand why Christ Jesus declared that the smallest letter and grammatical mark of the Scriptures was preserved by God’s Hand:  “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”  -(Matthew 5:18).

In addition to the work of Ivan Panin, and others, the “Heptadic” Feature or “Heptadic” Structural Design is God’s way of authenticating the Textus Receptus/Masoretic Text (the basis for the KJV Bible) as being genuine.  This was stated back in the early 1990’s by Grant Jeffrey, author of many books on the Bible, Bible prophecy, and Biblical Studies.  From the beginning of the Bible, beginning in Genesis 1:1 we were provided this key.  The word or number “seven” is clearly identified with something being “finished” “complete” or “spiritually full”.

Just before I began my nearly year-long study on the “Theme of the Bride”, I had nearly completed my own study of the “Theme of Seven in the Bible”.  I spent six months, took a clean (no hand written notes) and began to highlight in color, the patterns, occurrences, and while I, for the most part completed the study, I have come to the conclusion that it is incomplete, because I discover new discoveries all the time that eluded me at the time I was focused on gathering the appearances in the KJV Bible.   My more recent discoveries have dealt with the “multiples” of “seven” of the less obvious occurrences.  One of the books of the Bible that are filled with “sevens” is the book of Revelation.  I believe, if my memory is correct, we find 54 different visible uses of the number “seven” in Revelation  There are others that are less obvious to the reader.

It is my position that the “Theme of Seven in the Bible” has a number of purposes for its existence.  Many consider it as some sort of riddle, others recognize its spiritual connotations, but throughout my lifetime, I have felt God was impressing upon my spirit that this is a matter of disproving critics of the Bible.  That’s evident by the fact you do not find this “Heptadic” Design in any of the other ancient Biblical manuscripts.  In fact, this is another reason to disregard the so-called “lost books of the Bible” and the Apocrypha, which have been computer analyzed to see if the “Heptadic” Factor could be found in those spurious works.  When Wescott and Hort set about to create a “New Greek” text, they used what have become to be known as suspect manuscripts, mostly having originated in Egypt.  By what we now know about how Wescott and Hort did to support Roman Catholic doctrine, changing, eliminating, and adding words, it becomes more conclusive that God foresaw the day when men would attempt to change God’s Sacred Word.  This “Heptadic” Factor actually serves to discredit the heretics attempting to create their own Bible and passing it off as the real thing when in fact it was bogus.

“CBS 60-Minutes” aired a segment in July of 2014, about an art painter, by the name of Wolfgang Beltracchi.  His paintings have brought him millions of dollars in a career that spanned 40 years.  His paintings made their way into the museums of the world, galleries, and private collections all over the world.  He painted fakes of famous artists, and painted what he thought the great masters might have painted, passing them off as works of the real masters.  He was exposed because of one minor little detail.  When asked if he thought he did anything wrong, by Bob Simon, of CBS, Wolfgang said, “yes, I used the wrong titanium white, yeah’.  What I thought was such an incredible twist to the story of this world-class forger, was the fact, that experts who are regularly called into authenticate a painting by some recognized painter, are no longer willing to put their name on the line because many of the paintings painted by Wolfgang Beltracchi, art experts have authenticated as genuine by world-recognized masters have since been exposed to be forgeries by Wolfgang Beltracchi.  Beltracchi’s success in outwitting even the professional experts who authenticate paintings to be the genuine by a famous painter has stunned the art world, because no authenticating expert is willing to risk certifying a painting as genuine in case he has been tricked.  Art experts are very hesitant to use their expertise and the business of authenticating art works is risky business, for fear of legal matters.  Francis O’Connor is the world’s top Jackson Pollock expert; and he says he can spot a fake Pollock in a second, but these days is keeping his opinions to himself.  He fears being sued for certifying a forgery as being genuine!

The point of sharing this illustration in the problem of authenticating the great masters of the art world analogy is to point out the wisdom and foresight that went into the Bible by the Creator of the world, most likely, had in mind, the likes of Wescott & Hort, and those that have offered counterfeit Bible texts as if it were simply a Rolex watch.  I have been told by a couple of jewelers the Rolex watch is the most counterfeited item in the world, and that was confirmed by an individual on a radio talk show that investigated knock-offs, and counterfeit products.  In the last twenty-five years, there have been hundreds of bogus manuscripts offered up as “lost manuscripts.”  Their credibility of being genuine can still be tested by the use of the “Heptadic” Design.

Be blessed that God’s Word can’t be conterfeited,

Pastor Bob

God has hidden the identity of the Antichrist in Genesis 1:1 in the Hebrew. This discovery was so far out that I wanted to verify Myself the steps he took which I did. The article is A Number Sent From God (John Tng) written by John Tng.

Israeli airstrike kills 3 senior Hamas leaders

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — An Israeli airstrike in Gaza killed three senior commanders of the Hamas military wing Thursday, delivering a likely blow to the organization’s morale and highlighting the long reach of Israel’s intelligence services.

The pre-dawn strike leveled a four-story house in a densely populated neighborhood of the southern town of Rafah, killing six people, including the three senior Hamas commanders.

The trio had played a key role in expanding Hamas’ military capabilities in recent years, including digging attack tunnels leading to Israel, training of fighters and smuggling of weapons to Gaza, Israel said.

It was not immediately clear if their assassination would prompt a change in Hamas strategy in the current round of fighting with Israel or diminish the group’s ability to fire rockets at Israel. The military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, is a secretive organization.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said Israel “will not succeed in breaking the will of our people or weaken the resistance,” and that Israel “will pay the price.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the “superior intelligence” of the Shin Bet security service and the military’s “precise execution” of the attack.

The killing of the three top Hamas commanders will likely buy Netanyahu some time as the Israeli public becomes increasingly impatient with the government’s inability to halt rocket fire from Gaza.

Israel and Hamas identified the three commanders killed in the 3 a.m. airstrike in Rafah’s Tel Sultan neighborhood as Mohammed Abu Shamaleh, Raed Attar and Mohammed Barhoum.

Gaza police and witnesses said several missiles hit the four-story building.

Hamza Khalifa, an area resident said the house was struck without warning. “We only heard multiple F-16 (warplane) missiles, one after the other, six or seven missiles,” he said.

Several hours later, a large earth mover was still clearing mounds of debris and wreckage.

In pinpointing the whereabouts of the Hamas commanders, Israel likely relied to some extent on local informers. Israel has maintained a network of informers despite its withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, in some cases using blackmail or the lure of exit permits to win cooperation.

Al Majd, a website linked to the Hamas security services, said Thursday that seven suspected informers were arrested in recent days and that three were executed. It provided no further details.

It was the second time during the Gaza war that the website announced suspected informers had been killed by Hamas.

The Rafah attack came a day after an apparent Israeli attempt to kill the top Hamas military leader, Mohammed Deif, in an airstrike on a house in Gaza City.

Deif’s wife and an infant son were killed in that strike, but the Hamas military wing said Deif was not in the targeted home at the time.

The back-to-back targeting of top Hamas military leaders came after indirect Israel-Hamas negotiations in Cairo on a sustainable truce broke down Tuesday. Gaza militants resumed rocket fire on Israel, even before the formal end of a six-day truce at midnight that day.

Since then, Hamas and other groups have fired dozens more rockets, and Israeli aircraft have struck dozens of targets in Gaza, dimming prospects for a resumption of the Cairo talks.

Despite the crisis, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was holding talks in Qatar on Thursday with Hamas’ top political leader in exile, Khaled Mashaal, and the emir of Qatar. Before the collapse of the truce talks, Abbas had planned to use the meetings in Qatar to urge Mashaal and his Qatari backers to support an Egyptian cease-fire plan.

Hamas has rejected the Egyptian proposal, saying it contained no commitments by Israel to ease the border blockade of Gaza. The blockade was imposed by Israel and Egypt after the Hamas takeover of Gaza in 2007.

Hamas leaders said they could not accept a deal they feared would restore the closure regime that was in place before the start of the latest round of fighting on July 8. The border restrictions prevent most Gazans from traveling outside the crowded coastal strip and bar most exports.

Since the Gaza war erupted six weeks ago, more than 2,000 Palestinians have been killed and about 100,000 left homeless, according to the U.N. and Palestinian officials. Israel lost 67 people, all but three of them soldiers.

It was unclear if the killing of the three Hamas commanders would affect its ability to fire rockets. Israel estimated that Hamas had 10,000 rockets before the war and lost about two-thirds of its arsenal since then.

In a joint statement, the Israeli military and Shin Bet security service emphasized the importance of Abu Shamaleh, Attar and Barhoum to the Hamas military operation.

Abu Shamaleh had been the top Hamas commander in southern Gaza, it said. Attar was in charge of weapons smuggling into Gaza, the construction of attack tunnels and had played a role in the capture of an Israeli soldier, Gilad Schalit, in 2006. Barhoum was a senior Hamas operative in Rafah, the statement said.

Abu Shamaleh was a confederate of Deif’s who was involved in planning and carrying out at least four major attacks on Israeli soldiers since the 1990s, including one in 2004 that killed four and wounded 10, the statement said.

Attar, it said, was responsible for orchestrating a series of complex attacks on Israeli targets, including through the Sinai Peninsula in neighboring Egypt.

“This morning’s strike sends a clear message to those responsible for planning attacks, we will strike those that have terrorized our communities, towns and cities, we will pursue the perpetrators of abduction of our soldiers and teenagers, and we will succeed in restoring security to the State of Israel,” said an Israeli military spokesman, Lt. Col. Peter Lerner.

In addition to the Hamas operatives, three others were killed in the Rafah strike, including a resident of the house and two neighbors, according to Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Kidra.

The neighbors were identified as Hassan and Amal Younis, the parents of Issam Younis, the director of Al Mezan, a leading human rights organization in Gaza.

At least 20 people, including four children — among them three brothers, and their father — were killed in 31 airstrikes across Gaza, according to al-Kidra.

Israel also hit at smuggling tunnels along the Gaza border with Egypt and at agricultural lands west of Rafah in Thursday’s airstrikes.

The military said 18 rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza since midnight Wednesday, compared to more than 210 over the previous 30 hours.

An Israeli was seriously wounded when a mortar hit south of the southern city of Ashkelon on Thursday, it said.

In a nationally televised address Wednesday, Netanyahu showed little willingness to return to the negotiating table after six weeks of war with Hamas.

“We are determined to continue the campaign with all means and as is needed,” he said, his defense minister by his side.
