DEAD MEN’S BONES
Finale (Part XIV)
Dead Men’s Bones has documented the prophetic parallels
phenomenon, in that Spiritual Israel is presently re-enacting the primary
infraction committed by Old Testament timeline Physical Israel, as they
turned away from the LORD, and sought to integrate the Baalim
gods into a council of deities which included Yahweh.
Citing the seemingly logical
academic rationale that any religious manuscripts that coincide with the
time of the writing of the Old Testament are crucial in helping us to
understand the transmission of the Scriptures, excavated writings from the
ancient near East are especially prized. Further, when religious documents
extolling familiar names like Baal and Ashtaroth
were discovered, the scholars excitedly took the lead in sequencing the data,
and placed the information in what they deduced was the appropriate time frame.
The problem, of course, is that scholars have the same problem as the rest of
the world, as they also have that flawed human heart, which serves as
the receptacle for the ungodly deceit which has plagued our species from the
As the understanding of
antiquities in the Middle East invariably must be synchronized with either the
Old Testament, or Egyptian chronologies, the scholars usually seek to anchor
newly found records with what they consider to be established timelines drawn
from the Egyptian epoch. This means that early sequencing errors that
have gone uncorrected are compounded when adjacent histories are linked to them
– and this is precisely the case in extra-biblical records which document
national histories that were adjacent to Biblical history.
Just as people of faith are faced
with supposedly empirical evidence the world is billions of years old (when the
far more trustworthy information in the Bible vividly describes a young earth),
the individual is faced with choosing which perspective is valid. An untold
number of students can testify of how they’ve been oppressed by bigoted
educators who are versed in Darwinism, and Biblically centered students know
they run the risk of failing their geology class if they refuse to conform.
A towering intellect named Immanuel
Velikovsky discovered significant errors in the sequence of world
history, but because his research validated the veracity of the Bible, he was
persecuted and oppressed for the whole of his career as a result of his
perceptive understanding. Nevertheless, Velikovsky’s prodigious abilities
enabled him to produce multiple volumes of revisionist history, notwithstanding
the fact the spirit of the age is in a millennia long war against the truth.
As archaeological projects
continued to accumulate data concerning ancient peoples and kingdoms, the
results were always massaged and manipulated until the consensus worldview
assimilated the data – and the errors were perpetuated, compounding an
already chaotic understanding of world history. The relevant findings, related to
subjects of interest to Biblically literate individuals, are therefore
consistently skewed, and the results are usually Spiritually corrosive. In the
case of heathen religious documents discovered since the dawn of archaeology
and the study of antiquities, cuneiform writings detailing the religion of the
ancient Canaanites shows a sophistication and theological maturity which is
foreign to the time of the Exodus, but is consistent with antiquarian
materials anywhere from 400 to 700 years later.
As the scholars believe the
records written and compiled by Moses were codified at a later date than the
events themselves, the “experts” – in their demonstrably
inaccurate dating efforts, have moved the documents which extol the worship of Baal
and Ashtaroth, to a time when they would be the original, and the
Biblical Scriptures would be the imitator -- when the opposite is true. What is
truly sad is the ease with which the Christian academicians accepted this
anomalous worldview, which, in turn, profoundly affected articles of their so
called faith. The present day acceptance of the so called Divine Council
is the tragic result.
Ironically, those who are
Spiritually regenerated in Christ have never needed to discover Christ’s
empty tomb to believe in the resurrection, and despite scholars telling us Moses
supposedly plagiarized writings dedicated to Baal, we can
read in the 2nd book of the Bible the LORD instructed Moses to
record the story of the Exodus in a book – at a time that
could very well be a thousand years before the story of Baal was ever
“And the Lord said unto
Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in
the ears of Joshua” (Exodus 17:14).
Not long after that, but well
before the Israelites entered into Canaan – the land where
the Baalist religious histories were alleged to have been written before
the Israelites conquered the nation – the Old Testament tells us Moses
heeded the LORD’s instructions, for it references the writing that God
instructed Moses to produce.
“And he took the book
of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said,
All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient” (Exodus 24:7).
Prophetic theorists, as part of
the current generation which is corrupt to the core, posture as though the
cumulative research over the last century now yields a refinement of
understanding of the things of God. Conversely, our ancient Scriptures
themselves do not testify of a surge in understanding and discernment
during the end times. The Scriptures do not tell us we will fully
recognize how religion was developed, and how God can be proven to exist. The
fact is, the Scriptures describe a time, shortly before the end of the age, in
which theoretically intelligent people will be so deceived they
will turn away from the truth.
“Professing themselves to
be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:22)
Instead of telling us the people
the LORD selected to embody His words to the rest of human kind will intensely follow
His instruction set (because their “scholarship” progressed to the
degree they’ve gained a balanced understanding of history), the
Scriptures predict that those who should have known better will be deceived
to the degree that they arrange to brutally execute the Son of God who loved
“He is despised and
rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid
as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed
him not” (Isaiah 53:3).
Instead of telling us that mankind
will progressively draw near to God because of our ability to assimilate and
wisely apply knowledge to our circumstances, the Word of God tells us the
Christians will recapitulate the ancient sin of Israel, and turn away
from the LORD and embrace lies.
“And they shall turn away
their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (II Timothy
As we’ve labored to point
out, the primary temptation of ancient Israel was related to the incessant pull
towards following the multiple deities collectively labeled the Baalim
and the Ashtaroth. Further, as the present work has sought to
establish, the flawed Divine Council Paradigm is largely dominated by
documents which prominently feature Baal – thus confirming
the dual fulfillment formula our ministry has dubbed Twin Timelines.
Moreover, in earlier writings we
have repeatedly asserted that theological error is never random. In this
regard, we point out the Greek word rendered error in our New Testament,
is rendered delusion in other verses, and it is the LORD Himself
who delivers that delusion to those He deems appropriate.
“And for this cause, God
shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a
lie….because they received not the love of the truth” (II
Thessalonians 2: 11, 10).
This means it is a deluding
error, which the LORD Himself sends, to those who are perishing, when they
refuse the Spirit which would draw them to the truth, “that they might be
saved.” This fulfills an Old Testament prophecy, which speaks of a time
of desolation, which occurs in the LORD’s interactions with mankind.
“I also will choose their delusions,
and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer;
when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose
that in which I delighted not” (Isaiah 66:4).
Since these texts tell us the LORD
chooses their delusions – a word that is synonymous with error
– we can see that error is definitely non-random. Therefore, as we
pick up the trail of prophetic fulfillment in our time, we can anticipate the
course in which these errors will proceed. One of the hidden facets of the Divine
Council Paradigm is the implication that, even though the fallen angels
(“gods” or elohim in the text) crossed over into evil, and sought
the worship due the LORD, God supposedly continues to provide a venue in
which they can interact with Him.
This is, of course, contrary to
what the New Testament tells us, for the Bible does not indicate the
fallen angels are engaged in some ungodly assembly managed by the LORD.
Instead, the Word of God, which has been published for many centuries, clearly
indicates these fallen ones are bound in supernatural restraints.
“God spared not the angels
that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of
darkness, to be reserved unto judgment” II Peter 2:4).
This means that when the LORD
removed “the sons of God” who intervened in human history by
breeding with the “daughters of men” (Genesis 6:2, 4), the culprits
forfeited their standing as the sons of God. Further, they were not replaced
by Israel, as Israel was not comprised of non-fallen angels. The
inheritance of the fallen angels, as the sons of God, was superseded
by the subsequent covenant God made with flesh and blood Israel, who were then
clearly identified as the sons of God in Scripture.
“Ye are the sons of the
living God” (Hosea 1:10).
Just as Esau’s
foolish course of action greatly benefitted his brother Jacob
(who was subsequently chosen by the LORD to become Israel), the
window of opportunity for Esau expired, and he could never again obtain
the eternal inheritance he once threw away.
“Esau, who for one
morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that
afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was
rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully
with tears” (Hebrews 12:16, 17).
Just as Jacob did not
share the status of Israel with Esau, the blessing of the angelic
sons of God who sinned cannot continue concurrently with Israel’s
anointed position as the sons of God under the Old covenant. Once
again, Israel did not replace the fallen ones; their blessing as the
children of God superseded the blessing of the fallen angels who
forfeited the enormous honour of being called the LORD’s children. It is
the same way with the Spiritually reborn sons of God in Christ, who rejoiced at inheriting the birthright, when the
physical Israelites repeated the pattern.
“Behold, what manner of
love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons
of God” (I John 3:1).
In another example of the shadow
and the substance, the LORD speaks of how the sacred honour of being chosen
by God should be decisively embraced, as the Israelites were told to eat
the Passover lamb with great haste, while the offer was still valid.
“And thus shall ye [consume
the passover lamb]; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your
staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste” (Exodus
When one of his disciples wanted
to put off following the lamb of God, in order to bury a family member, the
LORD told him not to hesitate.
“But Jesus said unto him,
Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead” (Matthew 8:22).
When the Apostle Paul
compared Old Covenant Israel to a cultivated Olive Tree, and the Gentiles to a
wild tree whose branches were later grafted in to God’s plan for
salvation, the former Pharisee cautioned the Gentiles concerning the truly
sacred nature of being allowed in to the LORD’s kingdom.
”For if God spared not the
natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the
goodness and severity of God; on them which fell, severity; but
toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also
shalt be cut off” (Romans 11:21, 22).
We could make the same analogy
regarding the devilish angels who corrupted the world – an offense
resulting in the LORD bringing the great flood, when every man, woman, and
child (except the Remnant in the ark) -- was executed. In the light of the
scope of this catastrophic judgment, it is completely illogical to think that
flesh and blood Israel would adamantly insist the LORD bequeath a
portion of their inheritance to the fallen angels, because they were formerly
the sons of God.
And yet, through Israel’s
recurring embrace of the Baalim and the Ashtaroth
devils, that’s exactly what happened. As we’ve already seen, the
Scriptures document how King Solomon integrated the worship of Baal
and Ashtaroth into the magnificent temple of the LORD – and
the subsequent ruin of Israel.
In view of the documented pattern
of Twin Timelines, the analogies are clear. When the fallen
angels found themselves cut off from their standing as the sons of God,
using political intrigue and murder, the flesh and blood vessels hosting them
exerted their remaining power in the Spiritual dimension to influence their
successors to mingle the religion of the Gentiles, with that of the LORD, as
they sought to reclaim their lost birthright.
When the descendants of Esau
– known as the Edomites and the Idumaeans -- found
themselves cut off from their standing as the descendants of Israel known as
the Jews, utilizing political intrigue and murder, they sought to
be counted as Jews through the Idumaean King Herod.
When the seventy
rulers of the Jerusalem ruling council known as the Sanhedrin saw that Jesus
would be proclaimed the King of the Jews by the populace in Matthew 21:15,
using political intrigue and murder, they sought to retain their position
through the prosecution and execution of the Nazarene.
When the Sanhedrin saw that even
the grave could not hold Christ, the devils who inhabited them drove them to
join the Christians, and try to mingle the religion of the Jews with the Gospel
in Acts 15:1, as they sought to reclaim their lost birthright.
When the Apostle Paul
demonstrated that scholarship apart from the Spiritual life of Christ (his
“much learning” in Acts 26:24), should be thought of as
“dung” in Philippians 3:8, the Jews vowed to kill him in Acts
23:12, as they sought to reclaim their lost birthright.
As the New Testament conclusively
shows the Christians are the “Israel of God” in
Galatians 6:16 and the “light of the world” in Matthew 5:14, the Baalim
devils, through the flesh and blood vessels hosting them in the Christian body,
are seeking to replace the mediation of Spiritual Israel shining the light of
God to the Spiritual Gentiles, as they are still seeking to reclaim their lost
However, the salvation in Jesus
Christ as the only begotten Son of God, is unique, and eternal, and it is without end for
those whom He has chosen.
“There is one God, and one mediator between God and
men, the man Christ Jesus” (I
As the Scripture says, to
everything there is a season – and as this world is indeed passing away,
we would all do well to recognize today is the day to declare the acceptable
year of the Lord.
“We then, as workers
together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in
vain. For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of
salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now
is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:1, 2).
