How many even examine what this prophecy is all about:
“See, they will come from afar— some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan” (Isaiah 49:12)
From distant lands in the northern hemisphere “from afar” and the west, Christians will flee including the Coptic Egyptian Christians from the “region of Aswan”.
How in the world did Isaiah know that the only major Christians in the Middle East will be the Egyptian Christians? And how is it that westerners and northerners will flee the coming persecution? And there is more, the Muslims will convert by the droves. I love ignored prophecies. To continue our prophetic study on the coming Second Exodus of Christians listen or continue reading:
If Isaiah was strictly addressing ancient Cyrus why does Isaiah say this about Cyrus:
“Thus says the Lord: The labor of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and of the Sabians, men of stature shall come over to you and shall be yours: they shall walk after you, they shall go bound with manacles: and they shall worship you, and shall make supplication to you: only in you is God, and there is no God besides you. Truly you are a hidden God, the God of Israel the savior.” (Isaiah 45:14-15)
The question is this speaking of the historic Cyrus when Cyrus here is God? This reveals that the most flawed approach to interpreting scripture is the historic approach for Solomon the wise gave the main key to interpret:
“That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastics 1:9)
So if history repeats why the historic approach? And who is more qualified to give the methodology of interpretations: your modern scholar or Solomon the wise? Prophecy reveals that history repeats. The church, like ancient Israel will have the captivity in Babylon and Egypt. Prophecy says it though most cannot find it. An Exodus out of Babylon and Egypt from the hands of a pharaoh also must repeat. When Isaiah 45 says of Cyrus “only in you is God, and there is no God besides you!” this cannot be speaking of ancient Cyrus but Christ the Cyrus. The name Cyrus has been the topic of discussion amongst historians, linguists, and scholars who conclude that Cyrus is Persian pronounced “Kuruš” meaning “the Sun” Greek Κῦρος, Kȳros, Elamite Kuraš, Babylonian Kuraš, In Aramaic and the Arabic Bible Kwrsh and kwrš (see ancient Greek historians Ctesia and Plutach,Artaxerxes 1. 3). Messiah also has the title “the sun”. This is revealed in Malachi 1 and Psalm 84:
“But unto you who fear my name the Sun of justice shall arise” (Malachi 4:2).
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield;The LORD will give grace and glory;No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11)
The first question we need to ask is this: did God give a messianic title “My anointed” to the righteous pagan named Cyrus? Not exactly. “My anointed” in Isaiah 45 is preserved for Christ’s Second Coming. The prophecy was ultimately speaking of Christ and His allegoric name “the Sun”. The historic Cyrus was simply a type.
Isaiah 11 (the Second Exodus) is not an isolated prophecy for it ties with Isaiah 45 adding more credibility to what we presented so far. If the ultimate fulfillment of Isaiah 11 and Isaiah 45 is for the Jewish people or it being an ancient historic Exodus or tie to the re-creation of the state of Israel we ask these a Jesus-style question: when and how was Cyrus worshipped by the Hebrews as God?
Isaiah 11 and Isaiah 45 are two amazing prophecies that prove a major conversion of Muslim nations the context of both are ignored. God is reserving much of the Old Testament prophecies to guide the church in the coming days.
Cyrus in Isaiah 45 assisted the exiles of God’s people (Israel) on an Exodus from Babylon to rebuild the temple. But this was the minor exodus, the microcosm of Isaiah 45’s ultimate fulfillment. If one carefully examines Isaiah 45, and like Isaiah 11: this is a Grand Exodus of Gentiles out of a mystery Egypt which Ezekiel 32 and Isaiah 19 paints a coming world with an allegoric Pharaoh with the cult of ancient Egypt spread to nations that never knew ancient Egypt. Isaiah 45 is a dual prophecy. One cannot have a Cyrus without an Exodus and even the Temple, for this was the primary reason of both prophecies; Isaiah 11 and Isaiah 45.
Cyrus means “Sun” and so Christ is allegorically called “the Sun of justice”. Isaiah 45 was ultimately designed to address the rescue plan. But whom He rescues will amaze you. Read carefully:
“I have raised him up to justice, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and let go my captives, not for ransom, nor for presents, says the Lord the God of hosts. Thus says the Lord: The labor of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and of Sabians, men of stature shall come over to you, and shall be yours: they shall walk after you, they shall go bound with manacles: and they shall worship you, and shall make supplication to you saying: only in you is God, and there is no God besides you. Verily thou art a hidden God, the God of Israel the savior.” (Isaiah 45:13-15)
“See, they will come from afar— some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan” (Isaiah 49:12)
There are several issues to cover; “Let go my captives” is freeing the prisoners of Antichrist “who made the world as a wilderness And destroyedits cities, Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’ (Isaiah 14:17)
No one can dispute Isaiah 14 is of Lucifer-Antichrist. No one can dispute he “sits on the lofty mountains (that is nations, plural):“I will sit on the lofty mount, on the lofty mountains towards the north: I will go up above the clouds: I will be like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:13-14). And Zechariah warns to leave these “lofty mountains which are towards the north” when he states:
“Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north,” declares the LORD, “for I have scattered you to the four winds of heaven,” declares the LORD. “Come, Zion! Escape, you who live in Daughter Babylon!” (Zechariah 2:7)
And here “See, they will come from afar” which is distant lands “some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan” (Isaiah 49:12).
There is hardly any notable population of Christians in the Middle East left besides “the region of Aswan,” the Coptic diehard Christians.
“He did not open the house of his prisoners” this Antichrist system will prevent the truth from spreading and enslave Christians just as Pharaoh did to Israel. One can forget the First Amendment, which we already see being suppressed. In reality one could find more freedom in Haiti, in the US the truth is squashed by absolute social and legal pressure. Today in the US even a female soccer player was not allowed to abstain from supporting the sodomite agenda by refusing to take their mark on her uniform and tomorrow on certain grounds the Constitution can be suspended and such persecution be etched into law and the 13thamendment prohibits slavery but only on one condition:
“Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
“Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”
So slavery in the U.S. is legal under one condition, if one commits a crime. And by that be prepared to soon become criminals for refusing to take their syncretistic badge of servitude. Hard to believe? It was hard to believe during Nazi Germany. Amos 6 warns:
“Woe to you who are at ease in Zion, And trust in Mount Samaria, Notable persons in the chief nation, To whom the house of Israel comes!” (Amos 6:1)
Whenever you read “mount” it is an empire and Samaria is allegoric for syncretism. Zion is the church and it is at ease trusting a fallen empire. Woe to the ones who trust in the empire of Samaria (syncretistic) “notable persons” are distinguished elite whom the state of Israel come to rely on.
Which today is “the chief nation” “to whom the house of Israel comes?” Which nations today welcome the “house of Israel” and it backs them? And when it becomes a crime to abstain from supporting such evil agendas, we shall be persecuted and the 13thamendment allows it. We cannot tell you the amount of persecution we got already since mockers look for such things to mock and we will not give them the time of day. Our days are numbered and we hope you print our lessons for your safekeeping and that is all we can say.
Isaiah 49 speaks of an Exodus from “afar” “some from the north” “some from the west”. Should there be any doubt that the north and west is where such persecution would be most prevalent? And then God focuses on another spot which should not be so significant but in God’s eyes it is “some from the region of Aswan” in Egypt. Aswan’s Christians are the bravest. The migration is likely heading south since Christ comes with His saints as “whirlwinds of the south”:
“The Lord GOD will blow the trumpet,
And go with whirlwinds from the south.” (Zechariah 9:14)
So are we to start heading south? Unless God sends a clear message to do so we remain put. Our message is to prepare for when that day comes that you understand and not be hit as a deer in the headlights for if one travels to a distant land do they not consider what to pack for the long journey? But what we write about is to cause you begin to think, consider and prepare the oil in your lamps. You need to stop, pause and think about these prophecies and here are my two Jesus-style questions: 1—are these from the “Aswan region” Hebrews or the “Israel of God?” How could Hebrews be migrating from the “Aswan region” where there are no Hebrews? 2—How did Isaiah know that His most die-hards reside in the “Aswan region” out of all places? Probably the most diehard committed Christians today on earth live in Aswan. Just google “Aswan” and “Copts” and indulge yourselves in reading all about their resilience and their persecutions. In Aswan a Coptic child understands the Bible better than your scholars for he uses his spirit and not just his mind.
So in Isaiah 45 we haveSabeans “men of stature” (Arab princes and kings) including Egyptians and “Cush” (Africans, simple and poor folks, the most die-hard against Sodom) come “bound with manacles” (a sign of penance) all these fall down and make supplication and worship Christ saying: “Truly You are God” and “only in you is God, and there is no God besides you.”
How are such references made to a pagan named “Cyrus?”
Therefore, the title “anointed” (Messiah) is ultimately for Christ. Cyrus whom God said of him: “I have named you, though you have not known Me” (v.4) cannot be the Messiah, yet Messiah is “savior” or “rescuer” and so the Hebrews have their savior of the time, yet the church will have the ultimate rescuer when Christ returns “riding on a swift cloud and is coming into Egypt” (Isaiah 19:1).
But then we find a replacement of the Muslim creed: “there is no God but Allah,” when the converts respond to the ultimate Cyrus with: “there is no God besides you” (the other Sun, Christ).
In Isaiah 45 we find the fulfillment of Numbers 24 “And Edom shall be an inheritance, and Esau his enemy shall be an inheritance” of Christ.
Therefore, this part of the prophecy is not regarding the historic Cyrus. God ordained the name Cyrus (who rescued Israel out of Babylon) the title “sun” as a clue to the OneWho also brings the exiles out Babylon; that is this “Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and the Abomination of the Earth” and her daughter is in the far north (northern hemisphere) and is why it says “they come from afar” “some from the north”.
And this is the parallel we find throughout prophecy; one is a small (Cyrus) and the other is a Grand Cyrus (Christ).It all adds up, two comings; one is humble, the other is grand, two Israels; one is the small tribes of Israel and the other includes the grand Gentile nations, two Cyruses; one small “Cyrus” the other is Grand “Christ”, two testaments; one revolves around a small temple, the other are prophecies of a grand Temple, Christ’s church, a Temple from Heaven, Mt. Zion, Heavenly Jerusalem; we have two Jerusalems; one earthly the other heavenly, two Arks; one is God residing in a box, the other is God residing in the most pure of all women, the victorious Eve, St. Mary; two continual sacrificial systems; one is small that God ended, temporary animal sacrifices, the other is grand, Christ’s perpetual sacrifice forever.
There are two, tares and wheat. The tares read and switch literal to allegory and allegory to literal. In fact, this is how one recognizes a tare whom Christ already warned that He gave the allegory so that the tares miss it (Matthew 13:11,14,15). There are two “virgins” one God curses is because she claims to be His own and she is not and is why God calls fallen Christendom in the north as “virgin daughter of Babylon” (Isaiah 47:1) This is no virgin. At times God even curses “virgin daughter of Zion”. This also is no virgin. Even the ten virgins Christ spoke of half are not virgin in their heart, for if they were they would enter. Christ is giving a clue: the key there is that God is addressing the claimers using their own label, these make believe they are “saints” and are not. These represent the bulk majority. This should be a prophetic clue that such entity God is addressing is an entity that carries the correct title but does not have the proper deed to enter.
The rule of the two is that God has always chosen one (good) over the other (evil). The evil one does not think he is evil. He is self-deceived. This is hinted from the beginning of scripture (Cain vs. Abel) all the way to the Apocalypse (Harlot vs. Bride). There are redeemed Israel (few) and unredeemed Israel (bulk majority). And if anyone takes offense when we say that the bulk majority are “tares,” Christ set the two; there is a “narrow gate” and then there is a “wide gate”.
This is what Christ prescribed. This is why we include the most shocking prophecies never considered by any modern interpreter we researched; redeemed Muslims who convert are clearly included. Even within the church there are two: Virgins who get in, must keep a proper sacrifice, and then there are claiming virgins who are left out (like Cain) for having the wrong recipe for sacrifice. Drinking grape juice is no sin, the sin is that the grape-juice advocates are rebels. The story of Cain and Abel is in itself a prophecy between these two divides; one says ‘fruit is adequate enough’ and the other says sacrifice.
We shall have the battle of the twobetween Our Lady of Fatima with her seed (“the seed of the woman”) and the Muslim Fatima al-Zahra and her seed which is an entire study for later. Muslim Sufi and Shiites too consider themselves the seed of Fatima al-Zahra, which is the false mother. If you do not know your mother you are a spiritual bastard. There are only two cities: the city of God or the harlot city.There are two destructions, one with water (Noah) and the other for the global rainbow flag carries of Sodom with the true global warming: fire.
Unless interpreters recognize the allegoric and the dual nature of these prophecies and their link to Malachi’s Eucharist and incense offering.
Here, let us use your Sola-Scripturato prove it beyond shadow of doubt. My Jesus-style question to these is this: blind leading the blind connect the dots and answer why God chose the name “sun” and why both “open the gates” but only one shuts it for the old covenant?
This is a grand-check-mate. The clue is in Isaiah 45, verses 1 & 6, which applies the same usage and the perfect connect found in Malachi 1 regarding the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. First here is Isaiah 45:
“Thus says the LORD to His anointed, To Cyrus [the Sun], whose right hand I have held—To subdue nations before him And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double doors, So that the gates will not be shut” (Isaiah 45:1)
“That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is noother.” (Isaiah 45:6)
In Isaiah 45 Cyrus opened the double doors, that is the sacrificial system “from the rising of the sun to its setting” is a clue. Cyrus allowed Israel to “open the gates” of the temple to resume animal sacrifices from sunrise to sundown. But only Christ shuts the double doors. God later on (after the Hebrews rejected Christ) shuts it and Malachi then prophesied the end of animal sacrifices using the same terminology “shut the doors” and “rising of the sun”:
“Who is there even among you who would shut the doors, So that you would not kindle fire on My altar in vain? I have no pleasure in you,” [Israel] Says the LORD of hosts, “Nor will I accept an offering from your hands.For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations [gentiles], and in every place incense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My name will be great among the nations [gentiles],” says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 1:11).”
“In every place incense is going to be offered to My name?” Tell us Sola-Scripturists, where is thy incense? This is no allegory you literalists become allegorists for only such verses? Tell us Sola-Scripturists, did the historic Cyrus shut these gates? The “grain offering” is the Eucharist and it is a perpetual sacrifice even in accordance to using your Sola Scriptura. Now what becomes of your Luther? The historic Cyrus (the sun) opens the gates for the Hebrews and Christ (the other sun, the true king Cyrus) then shuts these gates and opens them for the Gentiles so that the sacrifice must continue from sunrise to sunset for God’s people (the Church) since the scriptures demanded the sacrifice is “forever”. Tell us Sola-scripturists, how is the sacrifice to be observed “forever?”
This is the transfer of authority to the Gentiles to becoming the custodians of these gates for the rest of humanity to enter. Here God speaks clearly that He will no longer accept the temple’s burnt offerings and a new standard a “better offering” is established with the Eucharist, a pure “grain offering” (as Daniel calls “daily sacrifice”) from sunrise to sunset. That is “from the rising of the sun” is an allegory that after the ascension, Christ fulfills Isaiah 45 to open the door until the setting of the sun (when “the sun” dims and no longer give His light at the end of the world under Mystery Babylon), that until then, one thing is certain, that the Gentiles (non-Jewish Christians) will offer the daily sacrifice the “hidden God” spoken of in Isaiah 45. And if one has difficulty with His name being “the sun” would calling Him “a branch” be an insult making Christ a twig? God forbid.
Therefore, it is the limited circulated interpretation (which attribute to pagan Cyrus the ultimate title “Messiah”) that is lacking. Prophecy is written for all times to be our torch to light the way in different eras of history so that for ancient Israel, the prophecies spoke of a rescuing Cyrus and for the second advent, these same prophecies still speak of a rescuing Messiah out of Mystery Babylon:
“I have raised him up in righteousness, And I will direct all his ways; He shall build My cityAnd let My exiles go free, Not for price nor reward,” Says the LORD of hosts. (Isaiah 45:13)
Is this another Exodus of Hebrews? These exiles (Second Exodus), Isaiah confirms includes converted Muslims in Egypt:
“And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.Then the LORD will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day, and will make sacrifice and offering; yes, they will make a vow to the LORD and perform it.” (Isaiah 19:20-21)
This is a literal Egypt and Isaiah 11 and Ezekiel 32 are allegoric Egypt.
The prophecies are set in such fashion so that the tares think that Egypt is doomed while they are good to continue in their Eucharist-void disco-tech worship services.
“The Egyptians will know the LORD in that day”is the conversion of Egypt’s Muslims most likely after the “city of destruction” Cairo is nuked inIsaiah 19:18:
“In that day five cities in the land of Egypt will speak the language of Canaan and swear by the LORD of hosts; one will be called the City of Destruction”.
Before Cairo is destroyed the Christians will flee. They have a Mother that always looks after them for she saved them from destruction at Zeitun.
I love ignored prophecy especially when the multitudes of interpreters fail to connect the dots. Egypt today already speaks a Semitic language: Arabic, the most essential language in translating the Aramaic and lost language of the Hebrew scripture and is why it is primarily used to translate the Bible. “The City of Destruction” confirms Zephaniah 1, the destruction of all “strong cities”. “Every city was made desolate; he will shut up the house so that no one can enter.” (Isaiah 24:10)“Look, the Lord is ruining the world and will make it desolate” (Isaiah 24:1) and the only place to be is in the Islands of the sea:
“Therefore the glory to the Lord will be in the islands of the sea; the name of the Lord will be glorious.” (Isaiah 24:15)
“The LORD reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad!” (Psalm 97:1).
“The glory to the Lord will be in the islands of the sea?” To interpret “Islands of the sea” one first must interpret “sea” as peoples, nations, tribes and different tongues. So to be on an “island” on a sea of peoples is significant to how small in numbers God’s people will be and to signify they are separate from this world as they roam the wilderness.
But here is another Jesus-style question: how did ancient Cyrus fulfill the prophecy in Isaiah 45 regarding the conversion of the Sabians including Cush and Egypt? Did the ancient Cyrus make them convert? No sane person would accept this. And how did Cyrus fulfill the following (which is the meeting of the saints raining from heaven with the redeemed on the converted earth):
“Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness; Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together. I, the LORD, have created it.” (Isaiah 45:8)
And who are these saints? Scriptures tell you:
“Gather My saints together to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice” (Psalm 50:4).
These are the ones who took Communion on the Altar of Perpetual Sacrifice. These are gathered to meet Christ while the others are left out.
To “bring forth salvation” is not regarding a people who are already saved. The prophecy in Isaiah 45 gives Christ a unique feature: “Verily thou art a hidden God”. Indeed, Christ is likened to the sun not only because His light shines upon a world of darkness, but also the sun is used in prophecy as an allegory of the resurrection and also is an expression of the light of the church. So when the sun grows dark, is an allegory for faithlessness (the falling away in II Thessalonians II) just prior to His second coming. One can exchange the name Kurus with its proper translation from Aramaic “sun” and the message flows in perfect harmony with Malachi’s prophecy regarding “the Sun of Justice” which serves multiple purposes. Cyrus’s campaigns continue all the way to Isaiah 60 to the wedding where He discusses Him saving His bride:
“For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Then to Christ God says:
“They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side.” (Isaiah 60:3-4)
The “you” is not the Jewish people on an earthly Jerusalem. God speaks to a corporate entity—The Son, The Saints, the Angels in heaven, the Bride: “call you The City of the LORD, Sion of the Holy One of Israel” (Isaiah 60:14) He reveals to His Son and His bride encouraging: “Lift up your eyes all around and see”. This fulfills: “He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied” (Isaiah 53:11). And what is “the labor of His soul”? Was it not a bride? This is similar to Jacob’s love for Rachel and how he endured the torments of Laban. To the Son He says of His bride: “The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.” And God here addresses the Bridegroom and the Bride as one (a corporate entity). Even at times of darkness, He encourages that His victory will repeat when Kedar (the Arabs) and then “the coastlands” (the West) will soon come after. Imagine that wonderful relationship in heaven as you read Isaiah 60, the promise of a bride for His Son who suffered much to redeem His beloved and the Father kept the promise to prosper His seed. God congratulates and comforts Him and His bride saying:
“Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. The multitude of camelsshall cover your land, The dromedaries of Midianand Ephah; All those from Sheba shall come; They shall bring gold and incense, And they shall proclaim the praises of the LORD. All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, And I will glorify the house of My glory. “Who are these who fly like a cloud, And like doves to their roosts? Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me; And the ships of Tarshish will come first, To bring your sons from afar, Their silver and their gold with them, To the name of the LORD your God, And to the Holy One of Israel, Because He has glorified you. “The sons of foreigners shall build up your walls, And their kings shall minister to you; For in My wrath I struck you, But in My favor I have had mercy on you. Therefore your gates shall be open continually; They shall not be shut day or night, That men may bring to you the wealth of the Gentiles, And their kings in procession.” The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, The cypress, the pine, and the box tree together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary; And I will make the place of My feet glorious. Also the sons of those who afflicted youShall come bowing to you, And all those who despised youshall fall prostrateat the soles of your feet; And they shall call you The City of the LORD, Sion of the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 60:2-14)
“They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar”. This “altar” is not where you put drums and guitars. It is “the altar of sacrifice” the Eucharist. “They shall bring gold and incense” “I will make the place of My feet glorious. Also the sons of those who afflicted you Shall come bowing to you, And all those who despised you shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet”.
So even though “the darkness shall cover the earth” God still repeats His victory and the same peoples who brought to Him at the sole of His feet in the manger gold, frankincense and myrrh from Kuwait and from Persia and Arabia, these will come again, be blessed and be redeemed.
The story of the manger with the magi kings is prophetic and repeats.
Then He speaks of the gates:
“Therefore your gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day or night”.
The gates were shut (for Israel) and were re-opened for the Gentiles (see Malachi 1). It is all allegorically interpreted. If not, how do we interpret: “You shall drink the milk of the Gentiles, And milk the breast of kings” do male kings have breasts and otters like cows that Christ milks them? But with time, for the wise, we gain much. God promised that Knowledge increases:
“And thou, Daniel, close the words, and seal the book to the time of the end; until many are taught, and knowledge is increased.” (Daniel 12:4).
And so it is with understanding the living words of God. Understanding prophecy is like man’s first attempts to dissect the human body centuries ago. So he thought he had a good grip on the basic functions, yet when centuries passed by he began to probe further to see that it is way more complex than he previously thought.
So then we discover for the first time the inner makings, a complex creature with DNA including the brain, which we can hardly fathom with all its complexities. Then we probe further to only discover a genome containing 20000-25000 genes (3 billion letters). The approximate number of atoms necessary to encode human DNA is 200 billion.
Likewise when we begin to understand the DNA strand of scriptures, the richness and uniqueness of the Semitic expression chiseled way back in history to prophetically and continually defy all the scholars who simply grasped it as when they initially began to dissect the human body.
So we begin to see fulfillments in the double, triple and quadruple applications for each verse or even by using one word and as time pass knowledge increases.
The Bible (as simple as it appears) is so well knitted together to form the full story. Every verse and at times even a single word involve a major prophetic theme.
In the end, we all realize that we cannot simply jump into prophecy without being a surgeon, without comprehending the keys to unlock God’s ways to explain His mind and even then we can never in a million years fully explain it as we cannot fully explain the brain or the DNA.
God’s ways are not man’s ways. Each and every verse has a unique feature like a strand of DNA so intricately tied with the rest of scripture to see how they all glorify God and reveal His plan for the salvation of man. None of us will be able to unravel every detail until after these events are all accomplished.
And so we have so many verses applying to short and then long-term fulfillments that repeat like the regeneration of the cells, all interwoven making them difficult to put in sequential order since they surprise us and revive again and then repeat again. The historic ones seem to repeat so as to fulfill Solomon the Wise “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” (ECC 1:9)
Ancient cataclysmic events repeat. From Babel and Sodom to Jerusalem surrounded by its enemies, it all repeats from ancient Israel from the seven-headed beasts to the seven eras of Christendom’s history. Unless we comprehend such repeats we can never comprehend the prophecies.
Another key in understanding prophecy is to unravel names, words and allegories and the meanings behind using these names and words that pertain to the living.
In scripture we find summaries declared first and detail explained after. And even all this detailed language—with all of its history passed and future—all of its stories—all of its intricate complex DNA—all of its inductive links and cross references—can be stuffed into three words: Christ conquered death.
He is in the Manna. He is the Hidden God which the Sabian confesses to Cyrus “the sun” that God is in Him (the ultimate Cyrus). So few see this in Isaiah 48. The Bible is God’s wonderful gift. Not even the most precious gem, ruby or diamond is worth the discovery of its ancient parchments. It confounded the best archeologist and always in the end silences the ardent critic where for missing a verse, their entire manuals end up in the waste, while scripture stands as an anvil, crushing every hammer.
Even the Semitic language; where in the West can they find a word that can represent so much? Immanuel is not simply a name, but is regarding it’s meaning: the living “God with us” and even this “God with us” cannot be completely fathomed by man.
The ones who ignored the Old Testament allegory missed Christ and so shall it be in the Second Coming and the Second Exodus. We can never fathom how an observance “Passover” is to be observed “forever” (Exodus 12:14). How do we observe “Passover” in heaven where “eye has not seen” “or has it entered into the heart of man…”
