"To Seek out that which was Lost..."

Chapter Three

    Rome was ruled by kings for about 300 years, from its foundation to the setting up of the rule by consuls At first two consuls were elected from among the patricians (Fathers or Elders, i.e., the nobility). Later this was changed by the uprising of the Plebians to give them representation in the affairs of the state, so that one of the consuls was elected from the patricians and one from the plebians. Thus Rome became a republic, giving equal representation to the upper and lower classes.

    "The Roman Empire unlike ('It was diverse from all the beasts that were before it" —Daniel 7 :7) all preceding empires, was not the creation of a great conqueror; no Sargon, nor Thothmes, nor Nebuchadnezzar, nor Cyrus, nor Alexander nor Chandragupta, was its fountainhead. It was a republic; it grew by a kind of necessity through new concentration and unifying forces that were steadily gathering power in human affairs." —The Outline of History H. G. Wells.

    Because other units of peoples round about were becoming a menace to Roman security, a union of Italian legions was set up, and eventually a united states of Rome was formed. As we have already seen, Italy had been populated by Iberians (Hebrews) Phoenicians (Hiksos), Zarahite Jews, Naphtalite Israelites, and so on, the very people H. G. Wells calls "Aryans, Keltics, Etruscans and Nomadic Shemites" —and by some of the Trojans, (Danites). These, in order to insure the continued existence of their liberties, combined forces and became united under the banner of Rome, with the Fascist Standard made up of the Battle Axe and a bundle of ten sticks bound together so that they could not be easily broken--- prophetic of the ten tribes eventually to be gathered within its geographic boundaries.

    Notwithstanding this, the western division of Greece led by Pyrrus made incursions against the Romans from time to time. About 275 B. C. Pyrrus with his Greeks--- alter having defeated the Romans, turned his attention to subjugating Sicily. Carthage, fearing that to have the Greeks in Sicily was a threat to its own existence, made an alliance with Rome, and brought the sea power of Carthage against the Greeks. When the Carthaginian fleet appeared at the mouth of the Tiber, the Romans were encouraged to renew the struggle against the Greek Pyrrus and his forces, and defeated them. This was the signal for Roman eastern expansion. Slowly but surely Rome expanded south to northern Africa and Egypt, west to Spain and France, then east to Armenia, Mesopotamia, Palestine, and north to England. By A. D. 115, Rome had become the greatest empire that had ever existed. Little by little power was delegated to the central government and eventually this concentration of power brought about a dictatorship. This fulfilled Daniel 7:23—"The fourth Beast shall be the fourth empire upon the whole earth and shall tread it down and shall break it in pieces." It also brings the Colossal Image of Nebuchadnezzar's vision down to the legs of Iron as was prophecied, "The fourth empire shall be strong as iron; forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things; and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise (Daniel 2:4 ) ." I wonder if the reference in both of these scriptures to "breaking in pieces" does not refer to the eventual reducing of the empire to the toe stage, and the division into the ten toes, spoken of by Daniel in Chapter 2:41.

    In the foregoing, I have endeavored to present the reader a cumulative series of facts, and I offer them as evidence to establish a Hebraic-Israelitish origin of the Roman Empire. These were but the forerunners of the other migrations of their brethren yet in the East that were still to come. We have seen how the many Italian states being compelled by fear of a superior power, joined themselves together and eventually formed a united states of Roman provinces, which later through expansion and concentration of power became a mighty empire.

    Next I intend to show that with the coming of the barbarians (Barb-aryans) their Israelitish brothers from the East, the centralized power of Rome was broken —not to be replaced by another World Empire, but to remain divided so that each group of invaders, or tribe, could inherit a portion in which to establish itself with a home base, from which to go forth and colonize, to create not one empire, but seven, as we shall see. These seven are to continue to exist until the time of the end, when once more through a world - wide emergency they will be compelled to unite in a united states of white racial units to form the last beast power described in Daniel and Revelation, in turn to be destroyed and replaced by the Universal Kingdom of Yahweh and His Anointed Ones.

The Ten Barbarian Tribes

     We ended the preceding section by tracing Nebuchadnezzar's vision of the Colossal Image to the stage of the fourth empire, or the legs of iron (Daniel 2:33, 40). We conclude with the Roman Empire at its zenith of power. In this section we will view the reduction of this fourth empire to the toe stage or its disintegration and the division into the ten toes, or its component parts, the Ten Tribes of Israel. —This will also conform to the vision of Daniel, as recorded in 5:6&8.

    The Roman Empire in its glory, having centralized its power in the Chief Magistrate, made him Emperor-Dictator. This power in the hands of one man brought abuses. With the increase of power came increased arrogance; and while the masses either through fear or favor supported this condition, the better classes abhorred it, and were ready to welcome any movement that would break such concentration of power, even though it meant the breaking up of the union, in order to eliminate such totalitarian tyranny. Eventually these internal rumblings grew more distinct, and dissatisfaction grew more manifest. In the Fourth Century A. D., after the death of Constantine the Great, the empire was divided into two parts, the western portion with its capitol at Rome and the eastern portion with its capitol at Constantinople. This division conformed to the scriptural symbol of the two legs of the Colossal Image of Nebuchadnezzar's vision. The death knell had sounded; the divided Empire could no longer fight off the incursions made on it by the Franks, the Allamani, and the Goths, especially when these outside attacks were welcomed by the better classes in the Empire, who disapproved the corruption and arrogance of dictators. The 'fifth column" undoubtedly did some boring from within. This weakened the strength of Rome so as to make it easy for the rest of the invading hordes of barbarians (Barb- Aryans), so that by the seventh century the great Empire of Rome had succumbed to the ravages of the Angles, Goths, Huns, Allamanni, Longobards (Long beards), Herulli, Vandals, Suevi, Burgundians and Franks. These so-called barbarians (Bearded-Aryans) had dwelt in that portion of the old Medo-Persian Empire that the Romans did not assimilate —in what is known to history as the northern forest belt, or the Black Forest, stretching from Germany to Turkestan north of the Caucasus. From there wave after wave of marauding tribes entered into western Europe to challenge the might of the Roman Empire.

    It is not the purpose here to give a detailed history of the decline and fall of the Empire of the Caesars. It is enough to say that the ten different tribal waves of invaders finally succeeded, not only in destroying the flower of the Roman Empire, but also, in dividing it among themselves as was forecast by the vision of Nebuchadnezzar in that portion described as the ten toes of the Colossal Image.

    These waves of so-called barbarians were in fact the bulk of the Ten Tribes of the Israelites, left in what had been the northeastern part of the Medo-Persian Empire. These now came west in fulfillment of the prophetic program which Yahweh had planned. Therefore the westward urge moving them to their eventual destinations! Consider the final symbol in that prophetic image recorded in Dan. 2 —the legs of iron, the two divisions of the Roman Empire, as they are now divided into the ten toes of the feet. The ten toes are the ten divisions into which the empire was divided, according to the prophecy,

"And where as thou sawest the feet and the toes, part of the potter's clay, and part of iron, the empire shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the empire shall be partly strong and partly broken" —Marginal reference: brittle or fragile.

    This verse has been very obscure and has baffled many Bible students, but, if we read the last word in Daniel 2 :42, as fragile, or easily-broken, instead of "broken," most of the difficulty disappears when we take into consideration that from the arrival of these waves of incoming tribes, Europe became a "free for all." Many superficial boundries were created; and as one writer puts it, "How countless the nations which swam forth, in mingling indistinct hordes, constantly changing the geographical limits, incessantly confounding the natural boundaries." Many changes have taken place on the face of what was once the Roman Empire —some of these in our own times. We have seen nations appear like mushrooms, only to disappear as quickly as they came. The disintegration of the Roman Empire caused by these hordes left iron (strong and unbreakable) and clay (weak) to become pawns in the hands of the mighty and to be exploited by them at will. These weak "clay" nations, being easily broken, appear and disappear at the whim and will of the strong "iron" nations, while the latter grow and develop into powerful empires.

    "Whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with the miry clay."—Dan. 2 :43.

    In the history of the nations that developed from the disintegration of the Roman Empire, many attempts have been made to maintain the status quo, but with no success. Intermarriage, (mingling themselves with the seed of men) has been the standard practice between the royal families of Europe, in an effort to keep peace, and, at the same time to obtain protection for the weaker nations, so as to perpetuate their existence. In spite of all their attempts, they have failed as the scripture said they would, because iron does not mix with clay. Competition among rival forces has been, and is still going on; the small nations striving for mastery, lock in life and death struggles. In all human endeavors we must remember the old saying, "Man proposes and Yahweh disposes." Long ago the final boundaries of the Israel people were drawn, and in spite of their desire to establish their own boundaries, we read in the Scriptures:

    "When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel." —Deut. 32:8.

    The historical barbarians did not come to put an end to the Roman Empire with the idea of replacing it with another world empire, but to divide it so that each of them could inherit a portion in which to establish itself a home from whence to go forth colonizing and developing the lands of the backward races, especially those of the Hamitic peoples whose territory was to be developed by Shemitic genius, according to Genesis 9 :26.

    Judging from the Jacobic blessing, of Genesis 49, and the Mosaic blessing, of Deuteronomy 33, the division of the patrimony of the Ten Tribes appears to be as follows: Reuben—France; Simeon—Wales; Zebulon—the Teutonic group; Issachar— the Slavic Block; Dan—Southern Ireland; Gad—Scotland; Asher—Holland, Belgium and Switzerland—the peace block; Naphtali—the Latin Block; Ephraim—the British Empire; Manasseh—the United States of America.

    Some readers will criticize the statement that the United States is a part of the division of the Roman Empire. However, the United States is not considered here as part of the geographical empire, but as part of the invading force which disintegrated it, and later developed farther west. Do not forget that the United States is only a liitle over one hundred and fifty years old, nor that this hemisphere was not discovered until the Fifteenth Century A.D. The Roman Empire broke up between the third and seventh centuries A. D. and therefore the ancestors of Manasseh, the tribe destined to inherit this land, and to found this western empire, were with the original invaders and dividers of the Old Roman Empire, and as such formed a part of the original invading tribes. As for the other three tribes of original Israel, they were disposed of as follows: Levi, who was the priest, received no landed portion outside the Temple area and was to be dispersed among all the tribes, to be educators of Israel according to his Patrimony (Deut. 10:9 and 18:1-2). Judah and Benjamin were joined into one nation under Rehoboam (See 2 Kings 12: 21 ) and they have remained so until now. They are known to us as the Jews. These two Tribes, Or the Jews as we know them, after the next World Peace Conference will emerge as a national entity, will prove to be the Two Horned Beast of Revelation 13. and will yet play a part toward the unification of the united states of the white races of the world, or what the Scripture describes as the Seven-Headed, Ten-Horned Beast.

    The small nations that have intermittently appeared and disappeared will soon be eliminated, to encumber the ground no more. They will be swallowed up by the big nations, probably something along this line: The Baltic group with the Slavic Block, the Scandinavian group with the Teutonic block and the non-Slavic group of the Balkans with the Latin Block. Nevertheless these seven Empire nations shall endure; England, Germany, France, Italy, Holland-Belgium-Switzerland, the United States, and the last to be be formed but not the least, —a union of Slavic States, whatever the name, under the protective influence of Germany. This last will be formed by divorcing the white Russians, the Ukranians, and kindred peoples from the U.S.S.R., and uniting them with the rest of the Slavic nations to form a single group. Then these seven empire nations will federate in one great combination forming a United States of white (Aryan) nations of the world.

    We have scriptural bases for these statements. Look in the Book of Daniel, and read, "And after this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and brake in pieces and stamped the residue with the feet of it; and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. And I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots; and behold in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man and a mouth speaking great things."—Daniel 7 :7-8.

    The first part of the seventh verse describes the Roman Empire in the zenith of its power. The last part shows its division by the ten tribes as symbolized by the ten horns which eventually developed out of the beast. This division was not completed until after the seventh century A. D. This ten-fold division continued many years in unsettled geographical demarcations, but eventually each ethnological or tribal group gravitated toward its prophetic designation and finally the principal ones settled in their home bases. From this point they begin to develop as typified: ten horns coming out of the beast. One little horn (Ephraim) from his island home, rose up to uproot these three horns (tribes) nearest to him—Gad in Scotland, Simeon in Wales, Dan in Ireland, (leaving but seven to develop into independent units.) Besides the Scriptural or prophetic evidences for the above statement, one phase of physical evidence remains: here are three separate peoples with distinct cultures, languages and characteristics, who at one time existed as three separate and distinctive kingdoms, but which have been uprooted and regimented under the Union Jack without losing their individuality. This was the initial step toward what eventually became the British Empire. It is out of this little horn that the final world dictator will come (Dan. 7:8; Rev. 13:5). Other tribes also developed in the course of the ages, each one becoming an Empire in its own right: altogether seven empire nations as we see them today. Behold the wonder of prophecy, a beast with ten horns, (tribes) but seven heads (empires). This symbol is multiplied four times: Daniel 7:7; Revelation 12:3; Revelation 13:1; and Revelation 17:1, 7. In Daniel 7:7 it is shown in a divided state. In Revelation 13 it is still divided, but in the process of unification after it receives its mortal wound. And in Revelation 12:3 and 17:1-7 it is shown in its unified state, the United States of the white nations of the world. This apostate Ten Tribes of Israel united politically in the Beast, or union of empires, and ecclesiastically in the unified Christian Church headed in the Church of Rome (Rev. 17: 3-4). In Revelation 17 we read: "The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and it shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition; and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life front the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, yet is." —Rev. 17:8.

    Let us examine this verse. "The beast that thou sawest was," the former Roman Empire, "and is not," that is, it was disintegrated, broken up, or went into chaotic condition," and it shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, ( literally chaos ) that is come back again in a unified state from the disintegration of 1400 years, and then "go into perdition" (be so completely destroyed that it will never be remembered) . The remainder of this verse describes the inability of the natural mind to conceive such a possibility. A European federation? "Impossible," they say. Yet Yahweh has spoken, and it shall come to pass.

    The democratic nations are fighting hard to keep this from happening, by maintaining many small nations and by trying to break up large nations into smaller units, so that those which have may keep others from having economic self-sufficiency. But it will not work. Necessity will eliminate the smaller nations from the next political set-up. The day of small nations is past. Aggregation, and not segregation, is the order of the day.

    The present struggle in Europe will not end with victor and vanquished. It will end with elimination of the small nations and the dividing of spheres of influence among seven empire nations, who are the ten horns, or tribes of Israel. This will not be settled on the battlefield, but at the conference table —along ethnological or tribal lines. And then, to avoid a recurrence of the former chaos, a federation will be founded of Aryan, or Shemitic, peoples of the world having the Hamitic (black) races subservient. The Japhetic (Gentile or yellow-brown) race will be excluded. The Asiatics, in turn, will form a union of Mongoloid races headed by Gog (Eze. 38). Propagandists even now, through peace organizations, editorialists and pamphleteers are busy formulating public opinion in favor of a federal union of nations. Sentiment for this trend of world affairs is steadily gaining toward such a combination —toward a powerful and ''invulnerable" union of nations that will be able to enforce its will on its constituents, even as the Scripture says, 'Who is like unto the beast (Empire), and who is able to make war with him?"—or it. Rev. 13:4.

    This will come to pass, not as proposed by man, but as ordained by Yahweh. For further important details consult your daily newspaper.

Greetings! For the record I found this an eye opening study! Not only is it based soundly on Scripture.. but it is also historically verifiable.. (if one takes the time to look). Of course one will have to take into account.. that there are always more than one side to the story.. and historians (you gotta love them) also tend to have varying opinions. As always Pray for the Guidance of IaHUeH's SetApart (Singular) Spirit...

Are you familiar with the booklet called 'GOD' Deity of the Nations?

And if so do you agree with what it says on page 58 in regards to the number/name of the beast and Jesus Christ?

I enjoyed the reading and it is scriptualy proven!! My concern is that I'am interested in collecting all the bibles (scriptures) that contain the name YAHUWEH & YAHUSHUA I also read earlier that there was a reference to a sacred name new testament where can I purchase one or two if you can help please email me back at ebenyahu@hotmail.com

Very interesting and convincing deliberation. As a "sarmatian" (samarian?)which is based on old Polish fables, I feel much better about my heritage.

In Memory Of A.B. TRAINA Edited and revised by Jerry D. Todd Sr. 666 WHO IS IT? WHAT IS IT? "Let him that hath wisdom count the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a man-(Adam), and his number is 666." -Rev. 13:18. Many Bible students in many ages have tried to identify the usurper who the Bible says will sit in the Temple of Yahweh, saying that he Is Elohim. John the Revelator tells us that the name of this usurper is to be identified by the ciphering of the number, whose numerical value is Six hundred Sixty Six. Many theories have been advanced, and all have been acclaimed as the true inspired interpretation. It is in the interest of truth that we examine all these, that is, as many of them as we may be acquainted with, to find whether they are true, using the Word of scripture as the final criterion. The most prominent of these so-called true interpretations is the one put forth by most of the Protestant churches, and particularly advocated by the Seventh Day Adventists. This is, that the number 666 is the numerical value of the name, or title, that the Pope wears on his tiara. That name is Vicarius Filiis Dei. Now we are told that if we cancel all the letters in this name that have no numerical value in Latin, then take all the letters in the name that have a numerical value and add them together, we will have discovered the Man of Mystery, the anti-Christ, the "Beast", the "666". Here follows their method of computation . First Word and Numerical Value V ----- 5. I ------ 1. C ----- 100. A R I ------ 1. U ----- 5. Second Word F ... I ------ 1. L ----- 50. I ------ 1. I ------ 1.S Third Word D ----- 500. E I ------ 1. Total 666. ---------------------------------------------------------. Thus proving to their satisfaction, that the papacy is the Beast, and that the pope of Rome is the man whose number is 666. .An argument against this has been raised that there have been many popes, and there may be more popes to follow. Which of these will be the 666? The Seventh Day Adventists and others of like mind have answered that it does not mean literally the number of a man, but rather, the number of a religious system, of a hierarchy. Well, all of this seemed acceptable, and the majority of Bible students believed it until somebody else came out with another "true" interpretation of 666. This time it was not -a real tiara, but an imaginary one, a halo around the head of a prophetess. The guiding spirit of a large denomination known as the Seventh Day Adventists. The name of this prophetess, or guiding spirit, for she is now dead, is Ellen Gould White. In computing this, we are going to use the very same principle of interpretation as we did in the case of the pope. We are going to cancel letters that have no numerical value in Latin, and use only those letters that have a numerical value. Then by adding these values together, we discover another phenomenon. Using the W as a double U (U has the same numerical value as V), by doubling this in double U we get 10. Name and Numerical Value E / L --- 50. L 50. E / N ---/ Second Name G / 0 / U --- 5. L ---50. D --- 500. third Name W --- 10. H / I ---- 1. T / E / Total 666 Now if this method of computation is the correct one, we. find that the Prophetess of the Seventh Day Adventists, as well as the Pope of Rome, proves to be the 666, of the Beast of Revelation. Now all of this would be amusing, If it were not so confusing. While we had only the Pope of Rome as the 666, we could all agree as to whom John meant, but now with two of them, and both of them the heads and guides of their respective movements, we are confused as to which of these is the Beast. The defenders of the Seventh Day Adventists protest and say, "The Bible says it is the number of a man, and not a woman. Mrs. White is a woman." But in retort we may answer as they answered in the case of the Pope: it is the identification of a religious system, a hierarchy. And an institution of religion is personified in the Scriptures as a woman. See Rev. 17:5. Later on some students of the Bible came out with the fact that there was a difference between the woman (the harlot) and the Beast of Revelation on which she was riding. The harlot truly represents the religious system with its spiritual head, while the Beast is a definite symbol of a political organization. We are told in Daniel 7:17 that it represents kingdoms, empires, or national governments. Therefore, if it is a political institution, the head of this kingdom or national government must be the man whose name numerically computed make up the number 666. It took a long time to do this, but in 1916 when we were in the first world war, some very ingenious Bible student made a wonderful discovery. He found the man who as the head of a powerful empire would fill the bill. And by a system discovered by him, the name or title of the Emperor of Germany did total up to 666. Now let us follow this system of computation. The title of the Emperor of Germany was Kaiser. Now please note that there are six letters in the word, and that six Is the mysterious key which will open the secret that has been closed for centuries. We will write the title Kaiser in a perpendicular form as follows, using for a numerical value the numerical position of that letter in our English alphabet. Name Numerical Value Key Number K --- 11 Key Number 6 A --- 1 Key Number 6 I --- 9 Key Number 6 S --- 19 Key Number 6 E --- 5 Key Number 6 R --- 18 Key Number 6 -----------/-------------------- 66 -------/---------------- 6 Now add these three columns together and Eureka! you have the number of the Beast.. Thus a good many students of the Bible went through the first world war, and even through the period of reconstruction, believing that the Kaiser was the beast the Bible, speaks about, and despite his losing the war, that he would come back in power some day, and then he would be revealed as the Beast of Revelation 13 and 17. But alas, the news of his death at Doorn evaporated that theory leaving us still without the solution to the mysterious 666. We were in a Second World War, and again Bible students went to work to unravel the mystery and reveal to the world the identity of the Beast whose number is 666. And here is the result of that investigation. The greatest of the then belligerent nations of the world was unquestionably the United States of America. The leader of tills great nation at that time was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. If you apply the same system of computation that we applied in the cases of VICARIUS FILIIS DEI, head of the Catholic Church, and Ellen Gould White, head of the Seventh Day Adventist church, you will discover that the equivalent number of the name of the former ]President of the United States, is exactly 666. And please bear in mind that it is the number of a political system. The K has the same sound as the Greek and Latin X, and it has the same numerical value. F / R / A / N / K ---- 10. L-- 50. I ---- 1. N / D --- 500. E / L --- 50. A / N / O / R / O / O / S / E / V --- 5. E / L --- 50. T/ Total 666. Was then our President the Beast of Revelation 13: and 17:? Assuredly, NO. We could go on and compute the name of Adolph Hitler, and by using the same method, get 666 out of his name, and perhaps we could do it with Stalin, if we knew his full name. But the very fact that using the same method we get the same result in every case confuses the issue all the more. It is evident that these different schools of Bible students have overshot their mark. They have proved too much, therefore proving nothing at all. The real truth was so near to them that they could not see the forests for the trees were in the way. They were trying to interpret truth where it did not exist. Revelation 13:16-18 has been corrupted and mistranslated, and no amount of interpretation of the text as it stands in the King James Version can ever bring any truth to the people of Yahweh. The key to the mystery is found in the 14th verse of Revelation 13, where we are told that the two-horned beast (JUDAH AND BENJAMIN) deceived them that dwell on the earth, and suggests to them (that dwell on earth) that they have a unified religion, and set up ONE DEITY, or IDOL (image), for the ten-horned beast (the ten Tribes of Israel), then united into a "United Nations", to worship. This movement is now on foot. The large religious groups are even now formulating their plans for such a move, and the Re- formed Jewish leaders are advancing the idea, as are the Judo-Christian pulpits, such as the one in the Rockefeller church in New York. Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, its pas- tor, has already put out feelers for a union of nations with ONE HEAD and a union of churches with ONE NATIONAL DEITY. That they would do this is clear in the Bible. It is there to warn us not to have anything to do with these movements, but wait patiently for the coming of the Saviour, YahwShua the Mashiaach (Messiah). The unity of nations, UNITY OF CHURCHES, and THEIR ONE NATIONAL DEITY are not of Yahweh, but of Satan. Let us go on with our subject. In Revelation 13:15 we are told that if any refuse to worship the IMAGE (or IDOL, or Deity) which the beast will set up, he shall be killed. At this point it would be well for us to stop here and go to Daniel to find a precedent, so that we may have it for a guide in future consequences. In Daniel 3, we read of Nebuchadnezzar's making an image of gold, sixty cubits high and six cubits broad and setting it up in the plains of Dura. Then he issued a general order to all his officers entrusting them with the observance of the law, that all people residing in the realm, regardless of race or creed, would have to worship this image which the head of the Babylonian beast kingdom had set up. We have been led to believe, by the religious leaders of the past and of the present, that this image was a statue of Nobuchadnezzar. This is an error. It was not a statue of Nebuchadnezzar, but of his 'ZARA' anointed Seed of Genesis 3:15. A saviour deity, which was worshipped under many names and titles. The proof of this is that when Nebu-chadnezzar (May Nebo protect the Seed-Crown) had the three Hebrew children for questioning, he asked them, "Do ye not serve my GODS (Deities) nor serve the GOLDEN IMAGE (or idol) that I have set up)?" (Daniel 3:14) The answer was, "Be it known unto you, 0 King, that we will not serve thy GODS (Deities) nor worship your GOLDEN IMAGE (Idol) which thou hast set up)." - Daniel 3:18. Please notice that neither the question nor the answer made mention of a statue of the king, but rather-of the GOD, or IDOL, of the king, which idol -had been erected for national worship. Further proof may be had in the final dispensation of their case, when, in the 28th verse, Nebuchadnezzar said, "Blessed be the Elohiin of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent His angel and delivered His servants that trusted in Him, and have changed the King's word, and yielded their bodies that they might not serve, nor worship, any GOD (Deity) except their own ELOHIM" (Daniel 3:28). Now let us find out, if we can, what was the name of the deity that Nebuchadnezzar, the head of the first of the four beasts, or empires, set up. If we have that name, and can prove that the succeeding Beast nations worshipped the same deity, we may have a definite clue to the identity of the 666 that has long evaded our search. In the study of the pagan religions of the past, we learn that the same deity was worshipped by many communities, but called by a different name, every one of these names representing the SUN as the giver of life. The Babylonian NEBO was known also by the name of MARDUK, or Merodach, the same as the Greek Mercurios, or Mercury. In Isaiah 39:1 we have a triple name of this deity, as the official name of the king of Babylon, which when analyzed means MERODACI-I-BAAL-Adon. Adon is the same as the Jewish Adonay and the Greek Adonis, found also in the marginal rendering of Ezekiel 8:14 as Tammuz, and Baal-Peor; known also in Tyre as Melcarth, and as Hercules, or Haracles; known by the Romans and Greeks as Jupiter, and Zeus. The following is copied from The New International Encyclopedia, Vol. 13, subject, Merodach. "Marduk appears originally to have been the solar god, but, as in the case of other gods, his nature is not single, and hence appears In literature as a stern god. In the artificial astronomical system of the Babylonian scholars which identified the chief deity with the stars, Marduk is identified with the planet Jupiter of the Romans, (and the Zeus of the Greeks)." As the head of the Pantheon he receives such titles as "the King of the Gods", "King of Heaven and Earth", "The Supreme God", and the like. The chief temple of Marduk stood in the city of Babylon, and was known as the E-SAG-ILLA, the lofty house. The name of the idol that Nebuchadnezzar set up in the plains of Dura was the chief deity of the Babylonians, the NEB0- MARDUK-BAAL Adon. These names, with many others, all apply to the SUN-DEITY. (See Ezekiel 3:16). This may be found in the study of the ancient pagan religions. The next Beast empire that succeeded Babylon was the Medo-Persian. History tells us that Cyrus the Medes set up a national Deity, and his name was ORMUDZ, or HORA-MAZDA, the "shining light" - the same SUN-GOD of the Babylonians, under another name. The next in line of successive Beast empires was Greece; and she in turn raised up a national IDOL, and called him Zeus, the Sky-deity or Sun-deity. This was the very same deity that the Medes and Babylonians before them had worshipped. This was followed by the Roman Beast empire, which set up the worship of Jupiter, the Latin version of the same Sky-deity, whose name the Persians called Mithra, and whose birthday, by the way, is still celebrated on the 25th day of December, at the time of the winter solstice. This was the same date celebrated in Tyre, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Of the setting up of the worship of this deity under various names in the different Beast nations, sacred literature records two instances in the past and one in the future. The first is found in Daniel 3; the second in First and Second Maccabees. It will be well for us, having read, Daniel 3, to read the account in the Maccabees and thus establish a precedent for the Identification of the future IDOL yet to be set up, and we shall identify him not only by name, but by number. "Moreover, King Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people (one faith), and every one should leave his (religious) laws: So all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king. Yea, many also of the Israelites consented to his religion and sacrificed unto idols and profaned the Sabbath. For the King had sent letters by messengers Into Jerusalem and the cities of Judah that they should follow the strange laws of the land, and forbade burnt offerings in the temple: and that they should profane the Sabbath and the festival days and pollute the sanctuary and the holy people, and set up altars and groves, and chapels of idols, and sacrifice swine's flesh and unclean beasts. That they should leave their children uncircumcised, and make their souls abominable with all manner of uncleanness and profanation, to the end that they might forget the law (of Yahweh) and change the ordinances. And whatsoever would not do according to the commandment of the king, he should die. In the selfsame manner he wrote to his whole kingdom and appointed overseers over all the people, commanding the cities of Judah to sacrifice city by city. Then many of the people were gathered unto them, to wit, every one that forsook the law, and so they committed evils in the land, and drove the Israelites into secret places, even wheresoever they could fly for succor. Now the fifteenth day of the month of Casleu (December), in the 145th year, they set up The Abomination of Desolation (Abominable idol), upon the altar, and builded idol-altars throughout the cities of Judah on every side, and burnt incense at the doors of their houses and in the streets. And when they had rent in pieces the books of the Law, which they found, they burnt them with fire. And whosoever was found with any book of the Testament, or if he consented to the Law (of Yahweh), the King's commandment was that he should be put to death. Thus they did to the Israelites every month, to as many as were found in the cities. Now on the Five and Twentieth Day of Casleu-(December 25th), they did sacrifice upon the Idol-Altar; which was upon the altar of Yahweh." This ought to give us a clue to the identity of the IDOL to which they sacrificed, for It was the deity whose birthday the pagans celebrated on the 25th day of December, long before the Saviour was born. Note that on the 15th day of December they set up the image of the Abominable Idol, and that on the 25th day they offered sacrifices to it. In 1 Maccabees this Idol is not named. In 2 Maccabees 6, we are told what this idol is, which Is set up in the place of Yahweh in the holy temple. "Not long after this the King sent and old man from Athens to compel the Jews to depart from the laws of their fathers, and not to live after the laws of Yahweh. And to pollute also the temple in Jerusalem and call it the Temple of Jupiter (Zeus) Olympus, and that at Garizim, of Juipter the defender of the strangers as they did desire that dwelt in that place. The coming of this mischief was grievous to the people." - 2 Maccabees 6: 1 to 3. Herein is the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet revealed. It is the Abominable Idol of the Gentiles, the Sun-deity, the Jupiter of the Romans, the Zeus of the Greeks, the Houra-Mazda of the Persians, the Marduk-Baal-Adon of the Babylonians, the Melcarth of 'the Tyrians, the Toth of the Egyptians, and so on, ad infinitum. The same image of the same idol was put up by Nebuchadnezzar on the plains of Dura, and was placed by Antiochus Epiphanes upon the altar of Yahweh. The only difference was the Latin translation of the Babylonian Baal-Marduk, Amon, the Phoenician Adoni-Baal, the Persian Mithra, whose birthday is still the 25th day of December, at the time of the winter solstice. In Greece, the Sky-deity, Zeus, had for his main evangelist, Nike the Goddess of the Nike-laity, or Nikelaitans of Revelation 2, who are charged by the Savior as the corruptive force in the Church of Ephesus and the Church of Pergamus. These were the people responsible for the substitution of YahwShua the Mashiaach (Messiah) with the Greek zeus-soter, or Zeus-Savior. In Matthew 24, our Saviour, in his prophetic sermon, said that there would be a repetition of the prophecy of Daniel, which had been fulfilled in part by Antiochus Epiphanes when he set up the abominable idol, ZEUS, or JUPITER, on the altar of Yahweh. The Greek Nike-laity (Nikelaitans) having succeeded in substituting Zeus in the place of YahwShua the Mashiaach (Messiah), the unsuspecting church has been deceived into perpetrating this deception to the end that the world is ready once more to set up a unified religious worship, not of the One they think they have been worshipping, the Son of Yahweh, but of the abominable idol, JUPITER-ZEUS, MARDUK-BAAL-ADONIS-MITHRA of the pagans, who are but masks behind which Satan, the archenemy masquerades. Yahweh, in order to help us identify this preposterous monstrosity, told us that the name of this IDOL translated into numbers is 666. The Greek Zeus has been transliterated into different nations as follows: Hesus, Easus, Gesu, lezus, and Jesus, so that today he is now being worshipped in the entire world by different variations of this name. Now let us come to the climax; Yahweh's identification mark of this Idol whose numerical equivalent is 666. In the Greek, the language that the New Testament is now written in, there are no numbers such as we have. Their numbers are the letters of the alphabet according to their numerical value. Now this is the original text from which we get the 666: "Here Is Wisdom, let him that has understanding compute the number of the Beast, for it is, the number of a man-(Adam), and his number is 666." - Revelation 13:18. This cryptic number '666' is a deliberate act of the writer to use a name disguise, so that only the wise in spiritual things would understand it. This identification mark of this "ABOMINABLE IDOL" and of its human representatives was not for the outsider or worldling to understand, but only for the wise in YahwShua - those who keep the commandments of Elohim and the Testimony of YahwShua the Mashiach, for whom it, is written, "Unto you It is given to understand the mysteries of the Kingdom". The principal of using disguises for pagan deities was not new with John the Revelator, but was used in the Old Testament by other prophets. There is no doubt that the Aramaic language In which the book of Revelation was originally written, contained the name of the IDOL which had previously defiled the temple in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes, and again would be used to defile the temple (the Body of Mashiach) thus at the time of the establishing of the Roman apostasy up to the close of this age. The name of that IDOL was ZEUS the Sunday God. They did this by using symbolic language, as is evidenced by the Hebrew text of Rev. 13:18. They disguised the name of the "ABOMINABLE IDOL" by cryptic Aramaic letters 'SS MYSS-TWAM SS' which = 666, which when those anointed of the Holy Spirit to understand the mysteries of the Kingdom, read 'YSS' as YeSuS (Jesus). When it was transliterated into Greek, he faithfully translated it X Z S (Kristos Zeus) which when read as a number it is 666, but the very same characters read as letters would spell out--the name of the 'IDOL' they were to watch-out for. As we said before--In Greek this number 666 is written as follows 'SS MYSS-TWAM SS'. These are the letters whose equivalent in Greek to English are X Z S. Now in Webster's international Dictionary we are told that the capitol X, written by itself, Is the abbreviation for the Greek Kristos, or the English Christ. So if we sound Z and S, instead of reading them as numbers, as do the Greeks, we have the word ZUZ, or Zeus. The complete letters would be X Kristos, Z-S-Zuz. Reading the Greek letters X Z S, as numbers, we have 666; reading them as letters we have the name of the deity KRISTOS ZEUSS, or CHRIST JESUS. The name and number of the abomination that maketh desolate (70 & 135 CE.), that is standing where it should not, or, as the Hebrew of Daniel has it, "the abominable Idol." This has usurped the place and dignity of YahwShua the Mashiaach (Messiah), and the whole world has been carried away with this deception (Mat 4:5). The statement in Revelation 13:18, that "it is the number of a man", bears evidence, when we consider what Isaiah says: "Oh Yahweh our Elohim, other lords (Heb. Baals) have had dominion over us, but henceforth only thy Name will we mention. They are dead and shall not live, they are deified men, therefore thou hast visited them and thou will make the memory of them to perish." -Isaiah 26:13-14. What is the name that is written in our foreheads? Is it JESUS CHRIST, the name of the abominable IDOL, or YahwShua the Mashiach (Messiah), the son of the Everlasting Yahweh. Revelation 14:1 says that the saints who meet the Lamb on Mount Zion have His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. (The marginal rendering). But in Revelation 17, the members of the Babylonian harlot church have the names of blasphemous idols, Lord, God, Jesus, Christ, written on their foreheads. Where do you live, on Mount Zion, or Babylon? Note that the true Mashiach (Messiah) in the last days is identified through His true followers as follows - Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints, they that keep the commandments of Elohim, and the faith-(conviction of the truth) of YAHWSHUA. In retrospect one cannot ignore the identification of the true Body of Mashiach YahwShus in the following of Revelation 12:17 - And the dragon-(Gen 3 seed) waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed-(Gen 3:15), that keep the commandments of Elohim, and hold the TESTIMONY-(Eduwth) of YAHWSHUA = Yahweh Saviour. Fot those who may not understand the TESTIMONY-(Hebrew. EDUWTH), this is talking about the Tent of Tabernacle in the Wildreness that held the pattern of Yahweh's true Mashiach. Exodus 25:40 And see that thou make them after their pattern, which hath been showed thee in the mount. John 2:19 YahwShua answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. John 2:21 But He was speaking of the TEMPLE-(EDUWTH) of His body. The believers in the true Mashiach YahwShua are identified - 1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of Elohim, and that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you? Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn. What Temple are you? Do you keep the commandments of Yahweh Elohim and the Testimony of YahwShua = Yahweh-Savious? Isa 43:11 May Yahweh open your eyes, is my prayer. Scripture Research Association
