A quick Note about the Tomorrowland Movie
Many good men and women throughout history have poured over The Book of Daniel and The Revelation in an attempt to divine the future of mankind. Little did they know or understand the true nature of those two books as you will learn on this page. In this last generation before the end time, we do not need to look so far back into the past to figure out what is going to happen in our lifetime.
If you are not familiar with the movie Tomorrowland, just know this for now. It is more important than The Book of Daniel in the Old Testament and the The Revelation in the New Testament combined. Let me repeat this in case you think I misspoke. The Tomorrowland movie is more relevant to the end times than the two most highly revered apocalyptic books in the Bible. Why? Because the movie was produced by the very same people who wrote those two books, the progeny of Jove, and the movie is clearly more recent and decidedly more relevant.
Significant Parallels between The Book of Daniel and The Revelation
I am beginning at the end with this section. It is an observation after countless hours studying this subject. But in the end it is for me the most significant perspective from my point of view. I see a parallel between these two books in the historical sloppiness of The Book of Daniel and the inconsistent character of Christ Jesus as presented in The Revelation in comparison to the rest to the New Testament. I believe both the historical sloppiness and the inconsistent character of Christ Jesus are faint echoes of the contempt the progeny of Jove feel for religion. They are planting these books in Jewish and Christian canons and cannot be bothered to exercise even this minimalist level of care. This very same contempt for humanity can be seen in the sloppiness of the faked moon landings and domestic terrorist or false flag attack of September 11, 2001 in New York City (“magically” remember as 9/11, the emergency telephone number in the United States of America).
Both Apocalyptic Books were Planted in the Bible
The numbering of the books in the Protestant Bible is how we know the progeny of Jove were in complete control of the church in Rome for at least 200 years after Constantine the Great, the time during which the biblical canon was established. The books of Daniel and Revelation were planted in the Hebrew Scriptures and Christian Bible by the progeny of Jove. They are using these books as vessels to communicate to their progeny, the “brotherhood” hundreds and thousands of years into the future. The message contained Daniel is comparable to the one contained in the Tomorrowland movie. Revelation had an entirely different purpose, but no doubt was inspired by the thought that they could once assert their dominance of the entire world by planting yet another apocalyptic book in a religious canon. Doing so fuels their utter contempt for all things religious. I have often thought of how they must laugh at the religious insanity these two books have inspired in modern day Christians.
Once again we find the progeny of Jove’s greatest weakness is in signing their work with sacred numbers.
Note that regarding the Book of Daniel as the 33rd book of the Hebrew canon requires counting the books as we do those in the Protestant Old Testament (i.e. 39 total) and is based on Babylonian Talmud, a fact which is not insignificant in this context.
The planting of these two apocalyptic books in the Scriptures is the most powerful evidence available to us that the progeny of Jove have been in control of the Western world for much longer than any of us are willing to admit. How do we know the Book of Daniel was planted in the third division of the Scriptures (referred to variously as as the Ketuvim in Hebrew, the Hagiographa in Greek, or the Writings in English) by the same progeny of Jove who also planted the Book of Revelation in the New Testament? In other words, How do we know Daniel is a fictitious character?
You must not overlook the obvious. Do a simple search for “Daniel” in the Bible. Outside of the Book of Daniel and Matthew and Mark quoting the same statement made by Christ Jesus in the New Testament, there are only six references to “Daniel” in the Bible. The first is in 1 Chronicles 3:1, which refers to a son of David, who reigned bout 1000 BC. So this is not the same Daniel. The second reference to “Daniel” is in Ezra 8:2, which is a list of names of the people who returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity. Daniel did not return and died about this time (538 BC). Next is Nehemiah 10:6. Here “Daniel” appears in a list of priests who signed (or “sealed”) a covenant with God. Our Daniel is already dead. This is someone else. All that leaves is three references to Daniel in the Book of Ezekiel: Ezekiel 14:14, Ezekiel 14:20, and Ezekiel 28:3.
But because of the Four Faces of Ezekiel (the 23 of 600 B.C.), we already know that the Book of Ezekiel has been touched by the progeny of Jove.
The “prophet” Daniel never existed. He is a fictional character who for whatever reason is the very definition of Vaticinium ex eventu. The so-called prophesy in the Book of Daniel is discussed in detail on page № 65. Book of Daniel. Adding the name “Daniel” to three verses in Ezekiel is a somewhat obvious effort to substantiate his existence for posterity. It worked. The problem is this guy doesn’t really exist. Care must be taken not to draw too much attention to what you are doing. More than one alteration of scriptures in existence for hundreds of years was too risky. This is why outside of the Book of Daniel, Ezekiel is the only book that even mentions his name. Stop and think about this for a minute. Is not Daniel the Moses of his generation? Both men were Jews who rise to positions of prominence in a foreign country where their people are enslaved. Both men hobnob with the most powerful men in the world. By all rights both men should be heroes. Yet, absent the Book of Daniel, no one would know this guy ever existed.
Moses is mentioned 784 times in the Bible compared to Daniel’s 70 (only five of which are outside the Book of Daniel). Sure Moses parted the Red Sea, but Daniel survived the lion’s den. And Moses led his people out of captivity, but because of Daniel and his friends the God of the Jews was honored and respected by Babylonian kings. He must have been greatly loved and admired by the other Jews in Babylonia.
Why do not the prophets Haggaj, Zechariah, and Malachi never mention his name. Not once. This makes no sense unless Daniel never existed.
The Jews returned from captivity in Babylon in 538 BC. Haggai is dated at 520 BC. Zechariah is dated at 520 to 518 BC. And Malachi is dated at circa 400 BC. You would think at least one of these guys would lament the fact the Daniel stayed behind in Babylonia. Not a word. It’s as if he didn’t exist. Why? Because he really did not exist. Daniel is a fictional character.
Furthermore, read the three verses, especially Ezekiel 28:3.
behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
This is the progeny of Jove speaking to their posterity.
From where I am sitting, this makes me think of the poorly faked moon landings and sloppily executed “attack” on September 11, 2001. Once you pull back the curtain on this Wizard of Oz and allow yourself to see the truth, not only do the progeny of Jove seem a lot more human, but the truth is they get sloppy because at some level they do not believe anyone is paying attention. The intent of Ezekiel to bolster the credibility of Daniel as an extraordinary prophet is painfully obvious. Here are the other two verses from Ezekiel. They are identical.
The word of the Lord came again to me, saying, Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God.
Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast: 20 though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.
Tossing his name in with Noah and Job further inflates Daniel’s status. But that’s it. That’s all the hero of the Babylonian captivity gets, mere bread crumbs. Close to nothing. Why? Because anything more would have been potentially problematic. This page will attempt to identify exactly when the Book of Daniel was added to the Scriptures. Doubtless, his name was added to Ezekiel at the same time. We expect to find that this was done during a period of great disruption. But even then, plastering Daniel’s name all over the Scriptures would have been noticed by scribes and priests. These three very minor changes somehow went unnoticed.
But something more is going on here. Of all the men in the Scriptures who could have been used as examples of good men God would not punish for the sins of others, NOAH AND JOB ARE NOT JEWS. How weird is that?
This is an example of the progeny of Jove talking over our heads. Basically, read from their perspective, what these two verses are saying is that Daniel is not a Jew, which is to say he’s fictional. This gives the “behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee” a whole new meaning. Considered as a whole, these three verses are telling the reader to look for a hidden message in the Book of Daniel. And what is that message? I am desperate to rewrite page № 65. Book of Daniel. Doing so is long overdue. But this is what I say about the Book of Daniel after delving into the Tomorrowland movie:
The Book of Daniel was the Tomorrowland of its day in that it encoded for posterity the exact year in which the destruction of the entire world occurs.
Both are vessels for a very special message, and that message is the exact year in which the Fifth World ends. Tomorrowland was necessary to reveal the year to the 144,000. In the case of the Book of Daniel, it was a precaution against some unforeseen event that wiped out the progeny of Jove leadership. This is some of the most guarded knowledge ever, but for the sake of humanity they could not risk it being lost in the two intervening millenia.
The Two Witnesses in Revelation are The Book of Daniel and The Revelation
I refuse to answer the question why I think the books of Daniel and Revelation were written by the progeny of Jove. The evidence must be regarded as a whole on this page and pages № 65. Book of Daniel and № 66. Book of Revelation. In this section, I will discuss not only the “two witnesses” but also references to “time, times, and a half”
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
This is one of two references to thousand two hundred and threescore in Revelation. Here is the other:
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Likewise there are two references to 42 months in Revelation:
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
There are also two references to three and a half.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Do you see a pattern here? The general thought is that the 1,260 is a reference to 3 ½ years on a (Babylonian) calendar and the 42 months is the equivalent. I disagree. Both numbers are meant to represent 3 ½ without reference to time. Why?
For a people such as the progeny of Jove who think in numbers, the ubiquitous sevens in Revelation is a cannonade of thought inevitably driving the reader’s attention to the “two witnesses” and the Book of Daniel through the use of 3 ½ in both texts. The mechanism is unmistakable once you open your eyes to it. Beyond merely linking the two books, this mechanism screams, “There is something of immense importance in the Book of Daniel. Find it!”
There are only two places in the Bible that reference “time, times, and a half.” One is in Daniel and the other is in Revelation.
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
What is happening here? The authors of Revelation are referencing Daniel. Why? Because the progeny of Jove wrote both of these books. They are numerically linking them in a somewhat obvious way, which makes the following quote from Daniel particularly important:
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Daniel was written well before the birth of Christ. There is no way its author could have anticipated the Christian religion. I fully acknowledge this, but my response is that Daniel was the Tomorrowland of its day. The progeny of Jove were writing a masterwork in terms of hiding arcana in the Scriptures of their greatest foe. This was either fortuitous language or the progeny of Jove anticipated another religion or something akin to the Jewish Scriptures in which they would make reference to this odd phrase “time, times, and a half” in the two millennia that separated them from the coming axial tilt.
The half in “time, times, and a half” and the reference to dividing in “time and times and the dividing of time” are both intended to provide a link to Daniel in the distant future. In as much as the progeny of Jove leave nothing to chance, I believe they intended to invent this second religion and in the process give rise to a people who would hate the Jews as much as they do. That religion I believe to be Islam. Yes, I believe the progeny of Jove invented Islam. It is a militaristic religion for a reason. But then Christianity happened. This they could have never seen coming. But once it was obvious that this new religion had an unusually devoted following, one that could give rise to a religious movement that would dwarf Judaism, the progeny of Jove threw their full weight behind it and the book of Revelation was born.
Why is the number seven so prevalent in the Book of Revelation?
Because 3 ½ + 3 ½ = 7
The progeny of Jove think in numbers. The emphasis on the number seven is intended solely to capture the attention of the “Brotherhood” in some distant time and then point them back to Daniel where the year is encoded. This is a precaution against the unthinkable, a break in their chain of leadership owing to some unexpected natural disaster.
The whole purpose of Daniel is to preserve the year in case something like this happens. Revelation has other purposes, but the most important one is clearly to make sure the Brotherhood realizes that Daniel is very important. This is why “time, and times, and half a time” is so critical. It is the phrase that links the two books. There are two references to 1,260, 42 months, and three and a half days for this very reason. Everything is pointing to the second “time, times, and an half” in Daniel.
I will not comment on the significance of it, but there are a total of 55 sevens in Revelation. You can be sure this is profoundly important.
Everything is math when it comes to the progeny of Jove, and the numbers in the two apocalyptic books in the Bible are very reminiscent of the Tomorrowland movie. I see great similarity between the two. All this reminds me of something Alder Av Grunn once told me. He said his father told him not to read the Bible, but rather to count it. The progeny of Jove have been with us for at least 2,600 years. That they were smart enough to use our religious texts for their own purposes should not come as a surprise to you.
The Book of Daniel
Christ Jesus’ use of “abomination of desolation” is what I call a “tag phrase.” When I am searching for an electronic copy of a document online, I select an unusual combination of words from the text of the document (the tag phrase) and then enter this into Google using parentheses. It is a flawless way of finding things online.
Here are the closing words of that book (Daniel 12:8-13 in the AKJV):
And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. [bold-red emphasis added]
Christ Jesus knows the Book of Daniel is apocalyptic. He knows his followers in the end time would be trying to decipher the meaning of Daniel. He is using the tag phrase “abomination of desolation” to point to this specific series of numbers at the end of the book.
Countless books, magazine articles, and websites have written about this subject, but they all create a convoluted reality in which we are asked to jump through hoops to believe the encoded year in which to expect the “Day of the Lord.” It took me one evening to see through all this nonsense. One evening. I knew as in all things, the truth is always simple. Likewise, the math in the Book of Daniel is very simple.
Here is an interesting quote from A Testimony of Jesus Christ – Volume 2: A Commentary on the Book of Revelation
This somewhat validates my theory that Christ Jesus was using “abomination of desolation” as a tag phrase to point to the end of the Book of Daniel.
The Math is Simple
The math surrounding the Book of Daniel can get really bizarre.
I knew existing date interpretations were too complicated. What I saw from the moment I looked at the Book of Daniel was that it began with a very pronounced date and ended with two numbers that looked very much like years, not days.
Adding the years at the end of the book to the date at the beginning of the book is the first thing I did. That day is etched into my memory because I had already discerned the true end date of the Maya Long Count calendar (December 21, 2018). The two ancient artifacts were in perfect agreement.
So let’s just add these two numbers referenced at the close of Daniel (1290 + 1335). Their sum is 2625. Suppose those are just years? Could it be that simple?
The first sentence in the Book of Daniel:
In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.
And the last paragraph:
And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
I cannot help but to see in this structure of the message in the Book of Daniel a faint echo of Revelation 21:6
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
The progeny of Jove have been in control of the Fifth World sense at least 600 B.C. Knowing them, I cannot help but to suspect that they are immortalizing the anniversary of some year that is very important to them. But what I know for sure is that the Book of Daniel is providing us with what computer programmers call a “checksum” with which to verify the end date of the Maya Long Count calendar.
607 BC + 2,625 years = 2018 AD
Just another coincidence? More confirmation bias? Not if you’re me. Not if you’re the one figuring out all of this. I feel sorry for the reader. Instead of seeing it for yourself, you must now hear it from another. That alone introduces doubts that do not haunt me. You really must pull this out of the realm of the abstract and make it real. For me, it has been real since that day I first discovered it.
So what does all this mean? The answer to that question is also very simple. The author of the Book of Daniel knew the correct end date of the Maya Long Count calendar. The Maya Long Count calendar is the intellectual masterpiece of all time. The people who designed it were spoken of the world over.
The Maya Long Count calendar significantly predates the writing of both the Book of Daniel (which scholars generally agree was sometime in the second century BC) and the New Testament. This is critical to your understanding of the Bible.
After Venus and Mars assumed their current orbits centuries before these books were written, the new solar system configuration was studied all over the world. This is what led to the discovery of when the Earth would be subject to the next axial tilt and the subsequent development of the Maya Long Count calendar to mark the year. That calendar is very, very old, most probably dating back to around 600 to 700 BC. Christ Jesus obviously learned about all of this either while in Egypt or while traveling around the world during the missing 18 years of his life.
Why 1290 and 1335?
But why divide the number of years into 1290 and 1335, besides the obvious answer to obfuscate their intended use? This question haunted me for years.
Daniel says “Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.”
1335 x Phi(𝛟) = 2160
This is yet another anti-cipher intended for anyone who figured out that you were supposed to add 607 BC + 2,625 years = 2018 AD. The people who designed this encoding knew how hard it would be for us to believe it. It points to the Maya Long Count calendar which ends not on December 21, 2012, but 2160 orbits of Jupiter from the start of the ancient Yuga calendar off India. I lose patience with those whose minds are so obstinate that everything is a coincidence. Everything is one thing. And that one thing is the coming axial tilt. We are living in the end times.
So now I finally know why 2,625 was divided into 1335 and 1290. Thanks to an anonymous contributor. This is the first time anyone has ever helped me. He uses the “Nordic pseudonym” Alder Av Grunn. Thank you, Mr. Grunn. Please note that 1290 is nothing more than the difference of subtracting 1,335 from 2,635. You should not try to find meaning in it.
I tell you of a truth, the progeny of Jove have a sense of humor. I see evidence of it everywhere. Take for example Daniel 2:16. Here it is important to realize that the progeny of Jove not only wrote both the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation, but they also numbered the chapters and verse in the Bible.
Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.
The interpretation not of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, but of the message encoded in the Book of Daniel is time, the end times to be exact.
When was the Book of Daniel canonized?
“The same things are reported in the records and in the memoirs of Nehemiah, and also that he founded a library and collected the books about the kings and prophets, and the writings of David, and letters of kings about votive offerings. In the same way Judas [Maccabeus] also collected all the books that had been lost on account of the war which had come upon us, and they are in our possession.” 2 Maccabees 2:13-14
“Nothing specific is said about what Judas collected other than that they were books lost in the war with the Seleucids.”
Nehemiah’s library is too early. Translation from Revelation to Canon: Studies in the Hebrew Bible and Second Temple Literature, James C. Vanderkam, 2002, “Revealed Literature in the Second Temple Period” p. 6-7
The 22 Books of Josephus
Before I say anything else, you need to understand I think Josephus was an integral part of the Roman bastardization of Christianity, and as soon as I hear his name I become suspicious. I think he is a tool of the Roman elite (i.e. the progeny of Jove in his time). And I am very suspicious of what you are about to read.
…we have the names of our High priests from father to son set down in our records, for the interval of two thousand years. And if any of these have been transgressors of these rules, they are prohibited to present themselves at the altar, or to be partakers of any other of our purifications. And this is justly, or rather necessarily done: because every one is not permitted of his own accord to be a writer; nor is there any disagreement in what is written. They being only prophets that have written the original and eldest accounts of things, as they learned them of God himself, by inspiration: and others have written what hath happened in their own times, and that in a very distinct manner also. For we have not an innumerable multitude of books among us, disagreeing from, and contradicting one another: [as the Greeks have:] but only twenty two books: which contain the records of all the past times: which are justly believed to be divine.† And of them five belong to Moses: which contain his laws, and the traditions of the origin of mankind, till his death. This interval of time was little short of three thousand years. But as to the time from the death of Moses, till the reign of Artaxerxes, King of Persia, who reigned after Xerxes, the Prophets, who were after Moses, wrote down what was done in their times, in thirteen books. The remaining four books contain hymns to God; and precepts for the conduct of human life. ’Tis true, our history hath been written since Artaxerxes very particularly; but hath not been esteemed of the like authority with the former by our forefathers; because there hath not been an exact succession of Prophets since that time.
Rather than citing this translation by William Whiston, I have copied his title page. The quote is from his translation of Flavius Josephus’s Against Apion. The bold-red emphasis is added. The complete translation of Against Apion in a most pleasant format is available on a University of Chicago website as part of The Genuine Works of Flavius Josephus the Jewish Historian.
The translator William Whiston is himself somewhat famous. The following footnote references his “Essay on the Old Testament.”
† Which were these XXII sacred Books of the Old Testament, see the Supplement to the Essay on the Old Testament, pag. 25-29, viz. those we call Canonical, all excepting the Canticles. But still with this farther exception, that the book of Apocryphal Esdras be taken into that number, instead of our Canonical Ezra: which seems to be no more than a later epitome of the other. Which two books of Canticles, and Ezra, it no way appears that our Josephus ever saw.
I should very much like to read what he says about these twenty-two books, but as of this writing I have exhaustingly searched both the Internet (including archive.org) and the Library of Congress and cannot find a copy. I’ve asked the Library of Congress for help locating a copy and if I can find one will update this text. An important footnote William Whiston added to the title page of his translation reads in part:
As to the time, and place when and where these two books were written; the learned have not hitherto been able to determine them, any farther than that they were written some time after his Antiquities, or some time after A.D. 93. Which indeed is too obvious at their entrance to be overlooked by even a careless peruser. They being directly intended against those that would not believe what he had advanced in those books concerning the great antiquity of the Jewish nation. As to the place, they all imagine that these two books were written, where the former were; I mean at Rome. And I confess that I myself believed both those determinations, till I came to finish my notes upon these books: when I met with plain indications that they were written not at Rome, but in Judea, and this after the 3d of Trajan, or A.D. 100. See the VIth Dissertation, § 3.
So William Whiston is convinced Flavius Josephus is writing about these twenty-two books (what is presumably the original Hebrew canon) sometime after 100 AD at or very near the time of his death. An equally respectable translator and scholar was Henry St. John Thackeray who translated Josephus; with an English translation by H. St. J. Thackeray, in eight volumes by Josephus, Flavius for The Digital Loeb Classical Library (Harvard University Press), 1926. The following two pages are copied from an original edition available on archive.org. They are from the Introduction to Volume 1, “THE LIFE AGAINST APION” (which are titles of “The Minor Works” written by Flavius Josephus at the end of his life), pages vii and viii.
Henry St. John Thackeray gives essentially the same date for the publication of Against Apion, which is around the year 100 AD, but in any case after the publication of the 20-volume Antiquities of the Jews in 93 or 94 AD.
Okay, so if we can prove that these 22 books are the same as the Mikra (or Hebrew canon) of today (the Protestant Old Testament), then we can say that the Book of Daniel was written sometime after 168 BC and included in the Mikra no latter than 100 AD.
Late first-century c.e. sources such as Josephus and 4 Ezra offer proof that the number of books was fixed (their numbers for the sacred books―22 [= the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet; Josephus] and 24 [= the numbers of letters in the Greek alphabet; 4 Ezra]―actually refer to the same books differently counted). Josephus also comes close to specifying precisely which books were involved. By the time he wrote the canon was closed. —Vanderkam, p. 11 [bold-red emphasis added]
Who wrote the Scriptures? …Samuel wrote the book which bears his name and the Book of Judges and Ruth…Jeremiah wrote the book which bears his name, the Book of Kings, and Lamentations…The Men of the Great Assembly wrote (Mnemonic KNDG) Ezekiel, the Twelve Minor Prophets, Daniel and the Scroll of Esther. —Translation of M. Simon in The Babylonian Talmud, Part 4, vol. 2 (ed. 1 Epstein; London: The Soncino Press, 1935). Quote and citation from Vanderkam, p.9
The first strong indication that Flavius Josephus is involved in planting the Book of Revelation in the Hebrew scriptures is the following implied warning to anyone who might consider adding to, subtracting from, or altering the Jewish scriptures.
And how firmly we have given credit to these books of our own nation, is evident by what we do. For during so many ages as have already passed, no one has been so bold, as either to add any thing to them; to take any thing from them; or to make any change in them. But it is become natural to all Jews, immediately, and from their very birth, to esteem these books to contain divine doctrines; and to persist in them: and, if occasion be, willingly to die for them. For ’tis no new thing for our captives, many of them in number, and frequently in time, to be seen to endure wracks, and deaths of all kinds, upon the theatres; that they may not be obliged to say one word against our laws, and the records that contain them. —Against Apion, Flavius Josephus, from Vanderkam translation, p. 8
In other words, Do not question the Book of Daniel!
Revelation 22:18-19 echoes these words of Flavius Josephus.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
The Book of Ezra is a book of the Hebrew Bible; which formerly included the Book of Nehemiah in a single book, commonly distinguished in scholarship as Ezra–Nehemiah. The two became separated with the first printed rabbinic bibles of the early 16th century, following late medieval Latin Christian tradition.
Jewish tradition has long attributed authorship of this historical book to the scribe and scholar Ezra, who led the second group of Jews returning from Babylon to Jerusalem (Ezra 7:11–26). Ezra 8 includes a first-person reference, implying the author’s participation in the events. He plays a major role in the second half of the book, as well as in the book of Nehemiah, its sequel. In the Hebrew Bible, the two books were considered one work, though some internal evidence suggests they were written separately and joined together in the Hebrew canon (and separated again in English translations).
The Book of Nehemiah has been, since the 16th century, a separate book of the Hebrew Bible. Before that date, it had been included in the Book of Ezra; but in Latin Christian bibles from the 13th century onwards, the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah become separated; a separation that became canonised with the first printed bibles in Hebrew and Latin.
The Nevi’im are divided into two groups. The Former Prophets (Hebrew: נביאים ראשונים Nevi’im Rishonim) consists of the narrative books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings; while the Latter Prophets (Hebrew: נביאים אחרונים Nevi’im Aharonim) include the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and The Twelve minor prophets.
Unless you believe in prophesy (I do not, especially not with the level of detail found in Daniel, and have recently dedicated an entire page to the subject), the inclusion of the “line in the sand” story of Antiochus IV Epiphanes being met by Gaius Popillius Laenas in Egypt and the aftermath of that meeting dates the writing of the Daniel to no earlier than 168 BC. As I write this, I have yet to study the Jewish canon, but I can tell you this much for certain, as a matter of logical consistency the inclusion of the Book of Daniel had to be sometime after 168 BC.
Modern scholarship suggests that the most recently written are the books of Jonah, Lamentations, and Daniel, all of which may have been composed as late as the second century BCE.
There is no scholarly consensus as to when the Hebrew Bible canon was fixed: some scholars argue that it was fixed by the Hasmonean dynasty (140–40 BCE), while others argue it was not fixed until the second century CE or even later. —Wikipedia, Development of the Hebrew Bible canon
Now this is interesting because we may safely assume that much like Constantine the Great took control of Christianity in order to plant the Book of Revelation in the New Testament, the progeny of Jove must have taken control of Judaism long enough to plant the Book of Daniel. The question is, When did this happen? Obviously, it must have been after 168 BC, but was this the work of the Greeks or Romans?
If you look at the  footnote in the above Wikipedia quote after “some scholars argue that it was fixed by the Hasmonean dynasty (140–40 BCE), it reads, “Philip R. Davies in The Canon Debate, page 50: ‘With many other scholars, I conclude that the fixing of a canonical list was almost certainly the achievement of the Hasmonean dynasty.'” Well, he cannot be right. The difference between 168 and 140 is 28 years which is not enough time for this forged book to gain acceptance in the Jewish community. Moreover, the “Hasmonean dynasty” is practically synonymous with the Maccabees
The Maccabees (/ˈmækəˌbiːz/), also spelled Machabees (Hebrew: מכבים or מקבים, Maqabim; Latin: Machabaei or Maccabaei; Greek: Μακκαβαῖοι, Makkabaioi), were a group of Jewish rebel warriors who took control of Judea, which at the time was part of the Seleucid Empire. They founded the Hasmonean dynasty, which ruled from 167 BCE to 37 BCE, being a fully independent kingdom from about 110 to 63 BCE. They reasserted the Jewish religion, partly by forced conversion, expanded the boundaries of Judea by conquest and reduced the influence of Hellenism and Hellenistic Judaism. —Wikipedia, Maccabees
It is highly unlikely that a forged book could have been canonized at this time. In fact, the thought that the Book of Daniel, which was written sometime after 168 BC could have survived the scrutiny of orthodox Jews at this particular time in history and been canonized by the Hasmonean dynasty was for me initially preposterous. Then I came across this passage in Wikipedia.
The Hasmonean bureaucracy was filled with men with Greek names, and the dynasty eventually became very Hellenized, to the annoyance of many of its more traditionally-minded Jewish subjects. Frequent dynastic quarrels also contributed to the view among Jews of later generations that the latter Hasmoneans were degenerate. One member of this school was Josephus, whose accounts are in many cases our sole source of information about the Hasmoneans. —Wikipedia, Hasmonean dynasty
(I included the last sentence in this quote for a very specific reason I will return to momentarily.) So let’s say it was remotely possible. The problem then is that Antiochus IV Epiphanes would not be acting on his own, any more than he would have defied Popilius and marched on Alexandria. The progeny of Jove have long ago morphed into the Roman elite. And planting the Book of Daniel in the Hebrew Bible is not something they would have entrusted to this madman.
After more than 100 years of Jewish independence under this Hasmonean dynasty, Roman rule is established when Pompey conquers Jerusalem in 63 BC. This is followed by Herod the Great’s Siege of Jerusalem in 37 BC.
Tired…general logic is to look for first break with history (or last accurate “prophecy”) which may be the latest date before which it could be canonized
Most readers of the Holy Bible have a good feel for what it was like in Jerusalem at this time because of the familiar stories of King Herod negotiating with the Jewish Rabis
SLOW DOWN WE NEED TO FULLY ANSWER THE QUESTION WHY. REVELATION WAS PLANTED FOR THE MISDIRECTION IN THE END TIMES. WHY WAS DANIEL PLANTED? MERELY TO ENCODE THE CHECKSUM? IS THAT REALLY ENOUGH?
The fact that jews were divided into different groups throughout the second-temple period must be remembered. How far any canonical decision would have been effective would have depended on the extent of authority possessed by those who made the decision. Their authority may not have covered all Jews, whether in the land of Israel or in the diaspora. —From Revelation to Canon: Studies in the Hebrew Bible and Second Temple Literature, James C. Vanderkam, 2002, “Revealed Literature in the Second Temple Period“p. 3

The “Council of Jamnia” is a Myth
According to the Wikipedia Council of Jamnia page, Heinrich Graetz proposed this theory in 1871.
Westminster Theological Journal 38.4 (Spr. 1976) 319-348.
The real value of the “council of Jamnia” myth is in the suggestion that the Writings canon was not closed at the time. James C. Vanderkam says as much in Revelation to Canon: Studies in the Hebrew Bible and Second Temple Literature, “Revealed Literature in the Second Temple Period:”
…J.P. Lewis, S.Z. Leiman, and R. Beckwith have pulverized the thesis that a “council” of Jamnia/Yavneh closed the third and final division of the canon. The details of the arguments regarding Jamnia need not detain us; suffice it to say that our few sources for the academy at Yavneh and its deliberations indicate that of the Writings the status of Song of Songs and Ecclesiastes alone was discussed. In addition, the discussions appear not to have centered about whether to admit these books to the canon; the issue was whether they should remain in the canon. This scholarly group, the extent of whose authority is unknown, in all likelihood did not close the canon. —Vanderkam, p. 11-12 [bold-red emphasis added]
Thus if we can date the supposed council at Jamnia, we have a date at which we can say that the books included in the Writings (which inclused Daniel) are still open for debate. Here are a collections of quotes that suggest a date
Based on these, and a few similar references, Heinrich Graetz concluded in 1871 that there had been a Council of Jamnia (or Yavne in Hebrew) which had decided the Jewish canon sometime in the late 1st century (c. 70–90). —Wikipedia, Council of Jamnia.

The Threefold Division of Jewish Scripture
Recommended Reading: From Revelation to Canon: Studies in the Hebrew Bible and Second Temple Literature, James C. Vanderkam, 2002, “Revealed Literature in the Second Temple Period”
And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
It was either called “the Other Books,” or “the Remaining Books,” or “the Writings,” even “the Holy Writings.” It became common to identify this Third Division by the name of the book which introduced it — the Book of Psalms. There was nothing odd in using this procedure from the Jewish point of view because they customarily named the Book of Genesis by the first Hebrew word that introduced it. This was also true of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and even the Book of Lamentations. There can be little doubt that Christ was referring to the whole of the Third Division (all eleven books) when He made His reference to the Psalms.
Vanderkam also agrees that “psalms could refer to the third division of the Hebrew Bible.” Regarding Luke 24:44, he specifically says,
Here again a tripartite division is enunciated, with the third being called “psalms”. This could refer to the book of that name or possibly it is a cover term for a section of the scriptures that is not further defined. The intention of the saying seems to be inclusive: the entire scriptures testify to Jesus and are fulfilled in him. [both quotes from page 7, bold-red emphasis added]
(1) “The Law, the Prophets, and Others of like kind.” (2) “The Law, the Prophets and the Other Books.” (3) “The Law itself, and the Prophets, and the Remaining Books.” Ecclesiasticus, Prologue 1:1
the unanimous opinion of early Jewish scholars expressed conviction that the Old Testament scriptures had been selected and placed in an official order by Ezra the priest (with the help of Nehemiah) in the 5th century B.C.E.
—From Revelation to Canon: Studies in the Hebrew Bible and Second Temple Literature, James C. Vanderkam, 2002, Revealed Literature in the Second Temple Period, p.
For rabbinic assessment up to the 17th century of our era we can quote Humphrey Prideaux:
“He [Ezra] collected together all the books of which the holy scriptures did then consist, and disposed them in their proper order, and settled the canon of scripture for his time. These books he divided into three parts: first, the Law; secondly, the Prophets; and thirdly, the Ketubim or Hagiographa, i.e. the Holy Writings; which division our Saviour himself takes notice of in Luke 24:44.” —Connection of the Old and New Testaments, Humphrey Prideaux, vol. I. (London: 1858), pp.318–319
Vanderkam on the threefold divisions in Prologue to Ecclesiasticus…
Ketuvim, (Hebrew), English Writings, Greek Hagiographa, the third division of the Hebrew Bible, or Old Testament. Divided into four sections, the Ketuvim include: poetical books (Psalms, Proverbs, and Job), the Megillot, or Scrolls (Song of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations of Jeremiah, Ecclesiastes, and Esther), prophecy (Daniel), and history (Ezra, Nehemiah, and I and II Chronicles).
The Writings in the Protestant Old Testament are organized differently than the Ketuvim because it is based on the Septuagint in which the
The Hebrew canon has three divisions: the Torah (Law), the Neviʾim (Prophets), and the Ketuvim (Writings). The Septuagint has four: law, history, poetry, and prophets, with the books of the Apocrypha inserted where appropriate. This division has continued in the Western church in most modern Bible translations, except that in Protestant versions the Apocrypha are either omitted or grouped separately.
The Oldest Extant Copies of the Book of Daniel
The Septuagint is of no use in studying the origins of the book of Daniel, but it seemed prudent to at least discuss why this is so in that the Septuagint is the oldest extant copy of the Bible. I removed the discussion to a subsection. I think it should be read for the sake of completeness.
Before the Qumrān scrolls were found, the oldest extant copy of the Book of Daniel was the Septuagint.
The Septuagint (from the Latin: septuāgintā literally “seventy”, often abbreviated as LXX and sometimes called the Greek Old Testament) is the earliest extant Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures from the original Hebrew. —Wikipedia, Septuagint
The three oldest surviving copies of the Septuagint are known as the Great uncial codices. They are the Codex Vaticanus, Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Alexandrinus. Codex is just another name for very old handwritten books as opposed to the scrolls they replaced. In this context, a codex is best thought of as a larger collection of writings such as the Old Testament or the entire Bible, whereas the term manuscript is usually reserved for handwritten copies of individual books within these larger collections, such as the Book of Daniel. The distinction is primarily between handwritten copies versus printed books, with a codex or manuscript implying antiquity. The term uncial refers to a particular style of handwriting that uses only capital letters. I usually think of it as old German writing. In fact, I have a very old German Bible written in the uncial script.
It is not known when the Greek Septuagint was translated from the original Hebrew text which is now lost to history. If that date were known, it would be more relevant to this discussion than the date of surviving copies.
Another legend holds that the translators were sent to Alexandria by Eleazar, the chief priest at Jerusalem, at the request of Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285–246 BCE), though its source, the Letter of Aristeas, is unreliable. Despite the tradition that it was perfectly translated, there are large differences in style and usage between the Septuagint’s translation of the Torah and its translations of the later books in the Old Testament. —Encyclopedia Britannica, Septuagint
Our discussion of the Septuagint ends abruptly with the fact that all three of these codices were written after the time of Constantine the Great, which is to say, after the Roman bastardization of Christianity during which time the Book of Revelation was planted in the New Testament, which makes them entirely unreliable for the purpose of understanding how the very same progeny of Jove planted the Book of Daniel in the Writings of what became the Old Testament for Christians. In fact, there is some speculation that one or more of these codices may be surviving copies of the which Emperor Constantine used to cement the place of Revelation in the Christian canon.
The Only New Testament Reference to Daniel
There are only two references to Daniel in the New Testament. One is in Matthew and the other in Mark. In Matthew 24:15-18, Christ Jesus references the Book of Daniel when he says:
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. [emphasis added]
And in Mark 13:14-16, the same saying was recorded as follows:
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judæa flee to the mountains: and let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: and let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
Here is an Interesting new translation from http://www.2001translation.com/MATTHEW.htm, which claims to be non-denominational:
So when you see the disgusting destroyer that was spoken of through the Prophet Daniel standing in the Holy Place (let the reader pay attention to this), those [who are living] in Judea should flee to the mountains! The man who is standing on his roof shouldn’t go down to remove things from his house, and the man who is standing in his field shouldn’t [go back home] to get his clothes.
There are many “signs” of the end times in Matthew 24, but none is more important than this one. Why? Because it is the last one given before Christ Jesus says to “flee into the mountains.” His use of “flee” and the deliberately exaggerated urgency of the last two sentences could not be any clearer. This is the last sign before the end. It is therefore profoundly important to understand the real meaning of the phrase “abomination of desolation.” I can assure you, it does not mean what you think.
Vaticinium ex eventu in the Book of Daniel
If the book is a plant by the progeny of Jove, the author most assuredly would have known the Egypt would be under Roman control for the foreseeable future. The stuff he got wrong does not date the writing. This is a mistaken belief no one else will understand.
As we see in Daniel 7:2–11:39, especially Daniel 11, the Book of Daniel utilizes vaticinium ex eventu, by its seeming foreknowledge of events from Alexander’s conquest up to the persecution of Antiochus IV in the summer of 164 BCE. However, Daniel knows neither about the re-dedication of the Temple (1 Maccabees 4:52–54) nor about Antiochus’ death, both of which happened late in November and December of 164 BCE. Therefore, Daniel 11:40–12:3 is no longer vaticina ex eventu but genuine predictive prophecy. Modern scholarship considers the stories of the first half legendary in origin, and the visions of the second the product of anonymous authors in the Maccabean period (2nd century BCE). Its inclusion in Ketuvim (Writings) rather than Nevi’im(Prophets) was likely because it appeared after the canon for those books had closed, and the dominant view among Jews and scholars is that Daniel is not in any case a prophetic book but an apocalypse. However, in the Christian canon Daniel is listed under the Major Prophets. —Wikipedia, Vaticinium ex eventu
References to Jeremiah
Correcting Some Historical Discrepancies
Nebuchadnezzar is Antiochus Epimames (Antiochus the Madman)
Antiochus IV Epiphanes
…the name Nebuchadnezzar contains a disguised reference to Antiochus to those acquainted with Hebrew numbering. The Babylonian king of 605 – 562 BCE was in fact called nabu-kuddurri-usur which should be transliterated into Hebrew script as NeuchadRezzar (as it is in eg. Jeremiah 46:2, 39:11). The change of that one letter gives this name the same numerical value in Hebrew (which had no separate numbers and so used letters to represent numbers) as the name Antiochus Epiphanes. This is too coincidental to be accidental and too contrived to be miraculous. —Westminster College, The Dating of the Book of Daniel, no date, unattributed, accessed February 17, 2019
Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard, saying,
against Egypt, against the army of Pharaoh-necho king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah.
The Divine Comedy
The divine comedy is that all of the insanity that grips modern Christians, the rapture, tribulation, pre-tribulation, premillennialism, mid-tribulational premillennialism, prewrath, partial pre-tribulation pre-millennialism, post-tribulation rapture, postmillennialism, amillennialism, millennial kingdom, etc., etc., etc., is fueled by the belief that the symbolic language used in these esoteric works is the God speaking to mankind.
EVERYTHING BELOW HERE FROM OLD PAGE…
This page is deceptively simple. So is truth. Were I to stack all the books, magazine articles, and websites written about this subject, they would reach the moon. I have written less than 1,500 words. It is my belief that the Book of Daniel encodes an exact year that is in perfect agreement with the Maya Long Count calendar. There was a time when this meant everything to me. I see it now as just one of many “end times markers.” They are not exact. They are just the ancients screaming at us to stay alert because we are living in the end times.
I mean no disrespect, but the warnings of the ancients are what I call “end times markers.” They are not exact. And now we must accept at least the possibility that they have been partially or fully negated by either altering of the year in which Christ Jesus was born or altering history itself by making changes to the Anno Domini timeline. I have yet to begin even seriously researching this possibility, but I am collecting references at the top of the № 34. The Problem with Time page.

The third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah
Here is the first sentence in the Book of Daniel.
In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.
There are two parts to this sentence Exactly what year this opening sentence of the Book of Daniel represents is more contentious than I originally thought. Secular historians favor 587 BC, including the Siege of Jerusalem (587 BC) article in Wikipedia, or to a lessor extent 586 BC. Christians favor 607 BC and to a lessor extent 606 BC. My take on something like this is that one must always be suspect of the secular historians misdirecting thought away from anything that might point to the actual year of the event. That may sound paranoid, but from where I am standing the extend to which the Progeny of Pythagoras is willing to go to misdirect and distract us at this point in time includes the possibility of nuclear war.
Pythagoras predates Christianity
It is important to realize that the secret societies, in particular the Pythagoreans, were alive and well long, long before the man we refer to as Christ Jesus was born. Then as now, knowledge of the coming destruction of the world was highly guarded information.
If you do not understand that Christ Jesus was constrained in what he could say about the end time then you do not understand his reality. Christ Jesus at one time says his words will always be with us and at the same time is careful not to be too specific in what he says about the end time. He knew that if he went too far in warning the people that in the intervening two thousand years the secret societies would only make greater efforts to destroy or mutilate his teachings. This is why the average person has no idea that he is a man of science. Matthew 24 is some of the most subtle communication in the whole of the Bible. Even given his careful choice of words, “and the winters will be severe” was stripped from Luke 21:11 in all but Lamsa’s translation of the Aramaic. I would go as far as to say that Christ Jesus gave his life so that he might draw our attention to the Book of Daniel and thereby know when to expect the end.
The Matrix Connection
The runtime for both the original Matrix and Matrix Reloaded movies is 2 hours and 16 minutes. This is something you will want to remember while reading this page. There are only two movies that I can say with authority were made by the progeny of Jove.
The Matrix and Tomorrowland.
The name of the ship in the original Matrix movie is the Nebuchadnezzar.
Mark 3:11 is the metaphysics of the Matrix.
And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
The intent here is clearly to identify the main character of this movie as the reincarnation of Christ Jesus. But beware. The original Matrix movie was released on March 31, 1999. In it, while riding in an elevator a comment is made by one of the characters that it looks like every floor is wired with explosives. There was no reason for this comment. In the movie, the building does not explode. Then they get out on floor 101, which is, of course, very prominently displayed. I will leave it as an exercise for the reader to get from this observation to The Illuminati Signature on the World Trade Center. This is not unlike 2001: A Space Odyssey in which Stanley Kubrick films a flag mysteriously waving is a completely closed and empty room. The messages are subtle, but they are very real.
Research Notes for the Book of Daniel
On this page, I do not use the terms Biblia Hebraica, (pretentiously Latin), Hebrew Bible (offensively Christian), of Tanakh to refer to the canonized Jewish texts. I do not like the acronym TaNaKh because it is clear to me that the Masoretic Text was adulterated in the worst possible way. This is discussed in the The Biblical Deluge (650 years off) section of the № 34. The Problem with Time page and in the The Genealogy in Genesis section of the № 37. 3100 BC, Genesis of the Fifth World page. The intensity or ferocity of resentment I feel toward the Rabbinic Judaism for this change in the sacred texts is unnatural and closely related to the discussion in the How Close are We to the End? section of the № 23. End Times page. Instead I consistently referred to as the Mikra, or “Readings.”
Tanakh is an acronym of the first Hebrew letter of each of the Masoretic Text’s three traditional subdivisions: Torah (“Teaching”, also known as the Five Books of Moses), Nevi’im (“Prophets”) and Ketuvim (“Writings”)—hence TaNaKh. The books of the Tanakh were passed on by each generation and, according to rabbinic tradition, were accompanied by an oral tradition, called the Oral Torah. The three-part division reflected in the acronym “Tanakh” is well attested in the literature of the Rabbinic period.
During that period, however, “Tanakh” was not used. Instead, the proper title was Mikra (or Miqra, מקרא, meaning “reading” or “that which is read”) because the biblical texts were read publicly. Mikra continues to be used in Hebrew to this day, alongside Tanakh, to refer to the Hebrew scriptures. In modern spoken Hebrew, they are interchangeable. —Wikipedia, Hebrew Bible
Mikra, I believe, is the historically correct term for referring to the Jewish canon.
First Principle: We know better what was done with Revelation. Assume similarities and work backwards; not all at once…history added later…why multiple language…why do Catholics have more text?
This is a critically important part of what I call the Roman bastardization of Christianity. I am confident that the primary purpose for publishing the Fifty Bibles of Constantine was specifically to solidify the inclusion of Revelation in the New Testament canon.
There are few pages the author regards as more important than this one. That the Roman bastardization of Christianity included the planting Revelation in the Bible is for him beyond question.
It is not out of pride I say this, but so that the reader may know I arrived at this conclusion on my own, that I tell you now the following text written by Manly P. Hall was found only recently, much to my delight, long after I developed the ideas in this section. It would be hard to describe how it felt when I first read these words on November 20, 2018. It was like fighting a bunch of bullies in elementary school when your big brother who is in high school shows up and chases them off.
…upon the weight of evidence furnished by its own contents the Book of Revelation may well be pronounced a pagan writing–one of the sacred books of the Eleusinian or Phrygian Mysteries. As a corollary, the real author of a work setting forth the profundities of Egyptian and Greek mysticism must have been an initiate himself and consequently obligated to write only in the symbolic language of the Mysteries.
—Manly P. Hall, “The Mystery of the Apocalypse,” The Secret Teachings of All Ages
If I were to brag, it would be to point out that I reached the conclusion on my own that this was a work of the Phrygians. To hear Manly P. Hall say the same thing, is music to my ears.
The Revelation was written by the Phrygians
“I am the Alpha and Omega” appears four times. This is the progeny of Jove self-identifying as Phoenicians, the invention of the alphabet being perhaps their greatest accomplishment in those times.
The Book of Revelation was written by the Phrygians, specifically by the Montanists, if not by the priest Montanus himself. Constantine The Great took control of the church in Rome in part so that it could be included in the Bible.
Revelation was the last book accepted into the Christian biblical canon, and to the present day some churches that derive from the Church of the East reject it. Eastern Christians became skeptical of the book as doubts concerning its authorship and unusual style were reinforced by aversion to its acceptance by Montanists and other groups considered to be heretical. This distrust of the Book of Revelation persisted in the East through the 15th century. —Wikipedia, Book of Revelation
Here it is worth noting that the Church of the East preserved Luke 21:11. In the one case, the progeny of Jove is trying to delete something from the Bible (Luke 21:11) and in the other they are trying to add something (Revelation). My money is on the Church of the East.
The Book of Revelation is the 27th book of the New Testament and the 66th book of the Bible. These people cannot help themselves when it comes to sacred numbers. Unless and until you understand this fundamental trait of the progeny of Jove, you will not be able to track their movement through history. It is their one great weakness. They cannot help but leave their mark on things, not unlike the branding of cattle. And their mark is sacred numbers.
This book was not added to the biblical canon until almost 400 years after the birth of Christ Jesus. And it is unlike any other book in the New Testament. I find the popular belief that it was written by a Christian and that it has anything whatsoever to do with Christ Jesus to be absurd.
The Book of Revelation was planted in the New Testament. It is not a revelation. It is propaganda. Specifically, it is critically important misdirection intended for the masses at the end times.
One of the few things I count extremely hard to understand is that the author of the Book of Revelation was either given extreme latitude in writing these supposed prophecies so that they would sound as if they were written by a Christian, or he may actually have been a Christian. Here is the paragraph before the last one in Revelation 13 in which the “number of the beast” is mentioned:
If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
What he is saying here is essential that they will not succeed. Their plans will fail. I long ago concluded that the author of this book was closely connected to the progeny of Jove, necessarily one of them, but secretly or in the process of writing the book became a believer in the man he was studying. From where I stand, I hear the voice of someone saying “these guys are really smart, but not so much so that I cannot speak directly to you.”
False Prophecy (Misdirection) in the End Times
The Book of Revelation includes a self-validating “prophesy” concerning the state of Israel, which is the primary reason it was authorized by the progeny of Jove. The Jews are being corralled back into Palestine for their complete and total annihilation. If religion is an anathema to the progeny of Jove, Judaism is their oldest foe in this regard. They are intent on the total destruction of these people.
The Book of Revelation is all about misdirection. Its primary purpose is to “prophesy” the formation of the state of Israel and then state (falsely) that the Temple will be rebuilt before the end. It will not, but the so-called “prophecy” about Israel was apparently so miraculous that everyone is standing around twiddling their thumbs waiting for the Temple to be rebuilt so that the end can come. This is the misdirection. This is why the Book of Revelation exists.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
In the Book of Revelation, the “false prophet” is always closely tied to the beast. In the end, they are both thrown into the “lake of fire.” I propose that in this case, when the author refers to the “false prophet” that he is referring to the false prophecies in the Book of Revelation, the very ones he is being forced to write and that are discussed on this page.
The entire purpose of WWII was to create the state of Israel and make the Book of Revelation look as if it really were written by someone who could magically see into the future. This is part of the “If you can’t beat’em, join’em” strategy that was implemented when the Roman elites (who were the progeny of Jove in their day) took control of the church in Rome at the end of the third century and bastardized the Christian religion. And it worked. A huge segment of the world population will not hesitate to explain to you that it is impossible for this world to be utterly destroyed by a catastrophe unless and until the Jews rebuild their Temple.
The rebuilding of the Jewish Temple is misdirection. This will never happen, but Christians will be complacent and unobservant of the end times, secure in their knowledge that the apocalypse cannot happen until the Jewish Temple is rebuilt. Why? Because the state of Israel was created, exactly as “prophesized” in Revelation. Ergo, the Book of Revelation must be the “word of God”? Right? Wrong! The Book of Revelation is one grand deception perpetrated over a period of more than 1,700 years. The rebuilding of the Temple is the very “false prophesy” the Book of Revelation abhors.
It’s nonsense, but a necessary and critical part of their plan to keep us asleep. Real “prophecy” is extrapolating current events and trends into the future. In other words, it is a special kind of thinking, perhaps a gift or inspired, but not God tapping you on the shoulder and whispering stuff about the future into your ears because he thinks you are somehow special or better than your contemporaries. An example of real prophecy is Matthew 24:20 and Luke 21:11 (“and the winters will be severe”). Read that if you want a sure sign of the end times. The Progeny of Jove was concerned enough about the specificity of that prophesy that they tried, unsuccessfully, to remove from the Bible.
This deliberate misdirection extends to the so-called “anti-Christ” also. Everyone is waiting for him to show, like the play Waiting for Godot. The power of this misdirection at a psychological level is immensely important. It is a critical part of keeping the masses asleep in a deep state of hypnosis on a par with gradualism or the doctrine of Uniformitarianism. This is yet something else I count difficult to understand. At some profoundly deep level, the misdirection in the Book of Revelation that has everyone waiting for Godot (i.e. the “anti-Christ”), the doctrine of Uniformitarianism, the CIA backed “conspiracy theory” terminology, the Panem et Circenses (Bread and Circuses) of politics in the United States of America, etc., etc., etc., all of it combines so that at this critical moment in the history of our world, somewhere in the back of everyone’s mind is a billboard flashing the message “It’s just another day. Nothing special is going to happen tomorrow.” Any why? Why is this so important? Oh my friend, the answer to that is simple. The Progeny of Jove has been planning for this event for thousands of years. They must maintain control of the airways and major traffic arteries up until the last moment in order to get everyone to what Virgil called the Vault Profound, the modern-day equivalent of their underground cities in Anatolia in which Phrygians survived the last great catastrophe.
So do not think for a minute that the author of Revelation is handing you some piece of information that can be used to divine exactly what is going to happen or when. As far as I know, I am the only person in the world who knows what 666 means, and it took me six years to figure it out. How do I know that I am right? I know their mindset. And I know like everything else that the answer would of necessity involves the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, which along with the planet Jupiter has been counting down the days for thousands of years now. I know that I am right. I can say with complete and utter confidence that after 1,600 years of guessing by my fellow human beings, that you now know exactly what 666 means. It is an indirect pointer to the end of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. See also The Militarization of Police Forces.
In exchange for planting very specific false prophesies and misdirection in the Book of Revelation, its authors were given carte blanche in the writing of it. They were Phrygians, but more importantly, they were Montanists, which is to say they were Christians. I do not wish to engage in an argument of whether Revelation was written at the request of the Romans or was an existing book they simply modified before adding it to the end of their New Testament canon. The important point to grasp is that it contains two messages, one scripted by the progeny of Jove (the Roman elites) and the other by Christians who were in an immensely unique position.
An Example of the Misdirection
one of millions that occur every day throughout the entire world
Here is a good example of how this misdirection has mesmerized the thought of good men who might otherwise be looking around and asking more important questions:
Patrick Heron believes the pagan Sibyl may actually have pointed to a false Christ who appears during the end times Apocalypse, and that the Novus Ordo Seclorum prophecy of a coming special “son” who leads mankind to a New World Order could be fulfilled anytime. According to scripture, Heron says, the near future will produce a man of superior intelligence, wit, charm, and diplomacy who will emerge on the world scene as a savior. He will seemingly possess transcendent wisdom that enables him to solve problems and to offer solutions to many of today’s most perplexing issues. One of his most important accomplishments at the very outset will be to broker a peace treaty between the Jews and Palestinians. He will also lead the charge in rebuilding the long awaited Jewish Temple. This is especially interesting given that, just this month, an Israeli archaeologist and Hebrew professor claims to have pinpointed the exact location of the original Jewish Temple, a potentially important step toward the fulfillment of the Temple reconstruction prophecy.
According to some, this Antichrist will appear at first to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Dan. 8:23). With imperious decree he will facilitate a one-world government, a universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed, until at last he exalts himself “above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:4).
When asked why he believes prophetic signs at this point in history could be pointing to the Antichrist and the end of times, Patrick Heron says, “I believe God is warning people, giving them one last chance to believe before the judgments of God, as revealed in the Book of Revelation, begin to fall on earth.” . —”Talk Of Apocalypse Reaches From US President Down“
The utter Impossibility of Rebuilding the Jewish Temple
Methinks God’s chosen people have lost their way.
What’s the difference in the following two pictures? None from the perspective that both groups are praying to something that is completely meaningless.

Anyone who reads this website knows I have been in close proximity to Jews my entire life and that my domestic partner of 15 years now is a Russian Jew, though she practices Buddhism. So I feel no need to pull my punches when I say the would-be comedian Hillel Richman disgusts me. Little does he know that flat earth is a CIA-directed effort to discredit anything on YouTube. I discuss this reality on page № 2. Conspiracy Theories (CIA Document 1035-960), Flat Earth, and the Propaganda of Mass Conformity. He is mindlessly jumping on a bandwagon about which he understands nothing for the sake of appealing to the Jewish masses, for the sake of popularity. It upsets me to even think about this man and how cheaply he sells his intellectual integrity. He is a disgrace to every living Jew on the planet.
And speaking of flat earth, where did this guy buy his Yarmulke?
The Jews are praying to a retaining wall of what remains of a Roman encampment in use when Jerusalem and the Second Temple were utterly destroyed in 70 AD. It’s madness. Shear madness.
Because of this intellectual freak show, would-be savior of the Jews, I am going to let real Jews present this subject, individuals who care more about their people than they do popularity. King David would have been proud of both of these individuals. I know I am.
On second thought, it was the Christian goy (Jewish for infidel ) who brought these facts to the attention of our religious forebears, the Jews. I think we deserve some credit.
I never take anyone’s word when quoting ancient texts. I insist on finding the quote myself. And it never ceases to amaze me how careless people can get when quoting something as critically important to mankind as eyewitness accounts to the fact that there was an artesian well inside of Solomon’s Temple. It’s not just a defining fact in locating the Temple. It is the raison d’être for the location of the City of David. And in the tiny community that was the original so-called “City” of David, would not this fount have been located within the walls of Solomon’s Temple? Of course it would. Where else would it be?
Gihon Spring is Jerusalem.
You cannot pursue this knowledge without thinking.
This is one of those Internet things where someone says something and everyone else just repeats it without the due diligence of fact checking. This quote is not from Proof of the Gospel, which has no chapter 38. It is from Preparation for the Gospel, Volume 1, Chapter 38 written by Eusebius of Caesarea “ad 260/265 – 339/340), also known as Eusebius Pamphili … was a historian of Christianity, exegete, and Christian polemicist.” (Wikipedia, Eusebius). The difference is Demonstratio evangelica versus Praeparatio evangelica. I think someone once said God is in the details. How apropos. But if you are going to tell an elderly Jewish man who visits the Wailing Wall frequently praying for Israel and the fate of the Jews, I think you owe him the decency of attributing the quote correctly.
Note that Eusebius of Caesarea lived (and prospered within the Christian church hierarchy) at precisely the time when the progeny of Jove were taking control of the church in order to plant the Book of Revelation in the Bible and more generally to bastardize Christianity. He became the Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine circa 314.
The “City” of David was tiny. It is better described as a small town.
Who among you can honestly contemplate this situation for more than a moment and not conclude that the necessity of designing and building a gravity flow water distribution system for the Gihon Springs is why these people did not live higher up on the hill? It is easy for us to wrongly conclude they would have built Solomon’s Temple on the top of the hill because at some level we more or less assume the availability of a pressurized fresh water system. And who among you will deny that Solomon’s Temple was built over the source of Gihon Springs? The water flowed into the Temple. It was a blessing. It is the reason why they are there.
The Romans were able to occupy the high ground (as military doctrine dictates) because they had the wherewithal to build an aqueduct to provide water to their fort. The necessity of doing so is why this ground was available in the first place.
I am including the previous three chapters in addition to the frequently quoted chapter 38 in order to provide greater context and because they too emphasize the importance of Gihon Spring to Jerusalem. Keep in mind while reading this that 40 furlongs is exactly five miles. The “City” of David is a gross exaggeration by today’s definition. I say again, the water was everything as you can now read for yourself. And please do pay special attention to the reference to “the High Priest’s fountain.” Would that not be within the Temple? The sentence highlighted in yellow is the one everyone on the Internet quotes. I am at a loss to explain why it is considered more important than a reference to “the High Priest’s fountain.”
‘TIMOCHARES, in his Life of Antiochus, says that
Jerusalem has a circuit of forty furlongs, and is
difficult to take, being shut in on all sides by abrupt
ravines: and that the whole city is flooded with
streams of water, so that even the gardens are
irrigated by waters which flow off from the city. But
the country from the city as far as forty furlongs is
without water: but beyond the forty furlongs again it
is well watered.’
‘THE author of the Metrical Survey of Syria says in
his first book that Jerusalem lies upon a lofty and
rugged site: and that some parts of the wall are built
of polished stone, but the greater part of rubble; and
that the city has a circuit of twenty-seven furlongs,
and that there is also within the place a spring which
spouts up abundance of water.
‘PHILO too says, in his Account of Jerusalem, that
there is a fountain, and that it is dried up in winter,
but becomes full in summer. And in his first Book he
“Νηχίμενος δ’ ίφίπερθε τί θαμβηίστατον ίλλο
δίρκηθρον συναοιδί μεγιστοίχοιο λοετροίς
ίείματος ίμπίπλησι βαθίν ίίον ίξανιείσης.”
‘And so forth. Again, lower down he adds to these a
description of the refilling:
“For flashing from on high the joyous stream,
Flooded by rain and snow, rolls swiftly on
Beneath the neighbouring towers, and spreading o’er
The dry and dusty ground, far-shining shows
The blessings of that wonder-working fount.”
‘And the rest that follows. Then again, concerning the
High Priest’s fountain and the canal that carries off
the water, he proceeds as follows:
“A headlong stream by channels under ground
The pipes pour forth,”
‘And all that follows this.’
Thus far then our quotations from Alexander
BUT Aristeas also, in the book which he wrote
Concerning the Interpretation of the Law of the Jews,
gives the following account of the waters in
[ARISTEAS] ‘Now the house looks towards the
East, and the back part of it to the West. The whole
site is paved with stone, and has slopes towards the
proper places for the influx of the waters for the
purpose of washing away the blood from the
sacrifices: for many myriads of cattle are offered on
the several feast-days.
‘And there is an inexhaustible reservoir of water, as
would be expected from an abundant spring gushing
up naturally from within; there being moreover
wonderful and indescribable cisterns under ground, of
five furlongs, according to their showing, all round
the foundation of the temple, and countless pipes
from them, so that the streams on every side met
together. And all these works have been fastened with
lead at the bottom and the side-walls, and over these
has been spread a great quantity of plaster, all having
been carefully wrought.’
Now without further ado…
The Temple Mount is not where the world thinks it is from the Hubcap _ Truth filter for You Tube channel:
Now I am going to tell you what no one else will. Larcius Lepidus, the commanding officer of the X Legion, was the progeny of Jove. They were in the process of abandoning Rome for South America and the plan was to bury the treasure of the Jews underneath their encampment on the so-called Temple Mount so that it could be recovered when they returned, which was the mission of the Knights Templar.
They deliberated started the tradition that the location of their military base used to destroy Jerusalem was the location of the Second Temple. Why? The progeny of Jove hate the Jews. The Book of Revelation and WWII were an insidious plan to make everyone think that what is about to happen in a few short years from now cannot happen until the Temple is rebuilt. But that is as impossible as it is for you to believe what I am telling you. I talk about it elsewhere on this website and will not rehash it here.
The world is not what it seems my friend. The progeny of Jove live for one day and for one day only. The Bible calls it the “day of the Lord.” There will never be a Third Temple because Judaism is about to collapse. No Jews will survive what is about to happen. They have been herded together in Israel to facilitate their annihilation at the hands of an ancient enemy they have grossly underestimated. And I am not talking about the Muslims. They too will be annihilated. I am talking about the progeny of Jove.

The Book of Revelation was written by the Phrygians. It is misdirection. Yes, it correctly predicted the formation of the state of Israel, the return of the Jews to their Promised Land. But the Progeny of Pythagoras started WWII. Herding the Jews back to the Middle East was one of the war’s two main objectives (the other being to throttle down population growth). Doing so makes the Book of Revelation seem to be just that, the “inspired word of God.” Far from it. The Jews are being corralled in the former land of Palestine because, for geographical reasons I will address in a separate page, it is one of the last places on Earth you would want to be right now. In fact, the only other place I can think of that is more sure to be completely destroyed by the coming axial tilt is the West Coast of the United States of America. No one survives in either of these locations. The misdirection is things like the rebuilding of the temple. This will never happen.
