Father we come to you in the precious name of Jesus and bless your name. You Alone are the True and Living God and there is none beside you.  Let Your Kingdom come in the earth. It is your desire that we live in divine health and protection from the snares of the adversary. We pray now that the Earth  Citizens will experience that Divine Health and that we will drink from the River of Life which flows from your Throne, oh heavenly Father.

We pray now for provision of  HEALTH, healing and protection from the Ebola virus. We ask you now to send forth  Your Holy Angels to Ebola stricken nations of West Africa – bring LIFE, HEALTH and HEALING. We bind that filthy spirit of infirmity in everlasting chains and cast it back to the pits where it belongs.

Father, we forgive those who have sinned against us and will not continually harp on their errors. We ask now that you forgive us our sins.

We pray that you will deliver us from this evil plague and other ills in the planet. Do not allow the adversary to overcome the planet with death and destruction. We bind the spirit of death in the name of Jesus and command the plague to cease.

Father in the name of Jesus we lift up the blood stained banner of the cross and plead the blood of Jesus over these nations that are particularly affected by the Ebola virus. Thank you for deliverance now in the name of Jesus. You are more than able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think, for the Kingdom, Power and Glory belong to you in Jesus name. Amen.

Thank you Father for hearing and answering in Jesus name. Amen.

1. Introduction to “Jerusalem is the GARDEN of Eden”

I had begun to write about the River Pison when I decided to explore the Hebrew word for GARDEN .

I did so because I had been thinking about  Archangel Gabriel’s Words that  “Israel is Eden, Jerusalem is the Garden of  Eden” (#Archangel #Gabriel’s Question About The Garden Of #Eden).

As I reviewed the Hebrew word for “GARDEN”  my eyes were opened to  an astonishing discovery  which  confirmed Archangel Gabriel’s Words that “Israel is Eden, Jerusalem is the Garden of  Eden.”

Here are the key texts:

And the LORD God planted a GARDEN1588   and there he put the man whom he had formed.

And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the GARDEN1588, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

And a river went out of Eden to water the GARDEN1588; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads…

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the GARDEN1588 of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the GARDEN1588   thou mayest freely eat  (Genesis 2: 8 – 10; 15 & 16).

2. Gan, the Hebrew word for the GARDEN of Eden

A review of the cross references show that Gan,  the Hebrew word for GARDEN  was used specifically in reference to the:

  • GARDEN  of Eden
  •  GARDEN  of Eden, which was the point at which River Eden parted into four heads.
  • location of the Tree of Life
  • site of the temptation and fall of the human race into sin.

 The translators of the Hebrew text used other synonyms for  GanThese synonyms, when applied to Eden/Jerusalem, reveal that is was:

  • well watered – Genesis 13: 10; Isaiah 58: 11.
  • a garden of herbs – Deuteronomy 11: 10; 1 Kings 21: 2.
  • associated with Kings’ palaces or dwellings – 2 Kings 21: 18.
  • enclosed – Songs of Solomon 4: 12 (parallel in Isaiah 5).
  • a place where spices, pleasant fruit, flowers like lillies,  cedars and other trees grew – Songs of Solomon 4: 16 & 6: 2; Ezekiel 31: 8& 9.
  • the garden of the Lord/His place of relaxation – Genesis 13: 10; Isaiah 51: 3; Ezekiel 28: 13; Ezekiel 31: 8& 9.


3. The secret that JERUSALEM IS EDEN is hidden in  GANAN/H 1598, the root word for GARDEN/Gan

As I read the texts related to  GAN/GARDEN  I decided to explore its root word  GANAN/H 1598.   GANAN/H 1598 occurs eight times in seven verses in the Hebrew concordance of the King James Version of the Bible.

GANAN/H 1598, the root word for GAN/GARDEN  is used specifically in reference to the city of Jerusalem:

  • For I will defend1598 this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake – 2 Kings 19: 34.
  • And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend1598 this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake – 2 Kings 2o: 6.
  • As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend1598 Jerusalem; defending1598 also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it –  Isaiah 31: 5.
  • For I will defend1598 this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake – Isaiah 37: 35.
  • And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend1598 this city -  Isaiah 38: 6.
  • The LORD of hosts shall defend1598 them… –   Zechariah 9: 15.
  • In that day shall the LORD defend1598 the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.  – Zechariah 12: 8.

These texts serve to reveal that:

  1. Jerusalem is the GAN/GARDEN  of Eden.
  2. God will defend His GAN/GARDEN from extinction by enemies because of His Promise to David. I pray that Israel will take comfort in the Word of the Lord and look to Him for refuge and defense.

Father I ask now for blessings, peace, angelic prosperity and protection upon your people Israel.

4. Comparisons

I found three Hebrew and  one Greek word that are used for Garden. However,  they do not refer at all to Jerusalem as the Garden of  EdenGANAN/H 1598 is the only  word that does so very specifically -

  1. ginnah/H 1594
  2. gannah/H 1593
  3. garden of cucumbers 4750
  4. Greek word – garden 2779




The Garden Of Eden

Keys to Understanding the Parable of the Garden of Eden

The Parable of the Garden of Eden – Secret One

#Archangel #Gabriel’s Question About The Garden Of #Eden

The Temptation And Fall Of Adam And Eve

The Tree of Life

1. On what day did God institute His Creation New Year?

Scriptures reveal that God established the Law of New Years by inaugurating Earth’s first New Year on SUNDAY JANUARY 1st on YEAR 1.  However, we see that humans have deviated from God’s established patterns:

  • The Gregorian calendar begins arbitrarily on any day of the week
  • The Jewish New Year (which is Nisan, according to scriptures), begins in the middle of the month of April.

Should we worry about the deviation from God’s established pattern?

Yes. God established patterns for light, darkness, days and years for a reason. I have seen, for example, a terrible consequence of beginning new days at midnight.  As I have shown, God’s pattern for new days or the 24 hour day cycle is sunrise to sunrise.   Here are FIVE consequences of starting days at midnight:

  • At least two days over lap.
  • For example, Monday 29th August “began” at midnight.
  • This means that we stole about 6 hours of Sunday
  • Sunday overlapped with Saturday
  • This is nothing but bedlam as far as God is concerned.

Detailed examination of the Holy Scriptures will reveal that people up to the time of Christ began days from sunrise to sunrise. Time therefore has “changed”, in a sense, under “newer and more modern” calculations.

2. On what day of the month did God command Moses to celebrate the Jewish New Year?

Exodus reveals that God gave the Jews a New Calendar system in order to reestablish His System for celebrating New Years on Sunday January 1st.   When God established the Jewish New Year He commanded Moses:

“This month shall be … the BEGINNING  of months… it shall be the  FIRST month of the year to you” (Exodus 12: 1)

On what day was that FIRST Jewish New Year?  The answer is revealed directly in the book of Exodus:

  • The Passover was celebrated in the evening of Saturday 14th Abib or Nisan
  • The Jews left Egypt on  Sunday 15th Nisan
  • This readily tells us that SUNDAY was the first day of the Jewish New Year and therefore the month of Nisan.

This is a perfect match with God’s Creation Calendar. I can easily show you other texts supporting this teaching that God always began New Years on Sunday 1st.

3. Is it important to follow the New Year pattern that God established?

Yes, it is:

  • God’s pattern of beginning New Years on Sunday 1st helps humans to keep accurate calculations of days, weeks, months and years.
  • Humans have disrupted God’s established order and chaos is the result.
  • We would have been able to match dates and days in history without using a calendar.
  • God uses NEW symbolically to refer to ENTIRELY NEW BEGINNINGS
  • Beginnings speak of new creation and renewal – God always starts on a new page.
  • People and nations that are renewed begin with God (three people with one name); God moving, God breathing or outpouring His Spirit, God speaking and establishing new things.

Most of all, when we follow God’s patterns, we begin to think like Him and understand how He thinks. I hear the Lord say that this is the MOST CRITICAL thing.  Blessings!

1. God commanded Adam to SUBDUE the earth

I wrote in the previous post that God made Adam in His image and likeness, thereby establishing proprietary rights to His creation.  Furthermore, God then made Adam King over the earth by first delegated the rights of  direct rule or DOMINION of the earth and its living creatures, including satan and his demons:

Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and SUBDUE it and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Gen 1: 28).


2.  What  did God mean by this command to SUBDUE the earth? 

Kabash (H3533) is the Hebrew word for subdue. I again explored how the word was used in the scriptures in order to paint a picture of what God meant when He told Adam to subdue the earth.  I was relieved to discover that kabash occurs 15 times in 13 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV

  • the second reference to the word subdue occurred when Moses spoke to three tribes telling them that they had to go over Jordan with the others and war against the Canaanites until the Lord had driven out His enemies and subdued the land (Num 32: 21-22).
  • Joshua 18: 1 showed that the Israelites warred against    the Caananites, taking possession of their cities and property and as a result the land was subdued before them. 
  • 2 Samuel 8 is a brief description of  how King David subdued enemy nations in war. He took possession of their territories, placed Israeli forces there, made the people  his servants, made them bring gifts/dues to him.  King David was a terror and his enemies feared him
  • King David commanded the people to help Solomon his son, since the Lord had helped him to conquer the nations and subdue them (1 Chronicles 22: 18)
  • To subdue means to bring someone else into bondage or make them a servant or slave (2 Chro 28: 10; Neh 5: 5; Jeremiah 34: 11, 16)
  • Weapons are used to subdue enemies (Zech 9: 15)

3.  Adam was therefore given the right to exercise military strength over God’s enemy satan

It is  important to twin the words subdue and have dominion because God twinned them in Genesis 1: 28.  In discovering their meanings, we find some important revelations:

  • God commanded Adam to treat satan as an enemy and not as a friend
  • Most of the references to the action of subduing  relate to the conquest of the Land of  Canaan in which ungodly, demon worshipping nations were replaced with people who God called “a Kingdom of  priests and a holy nation” (Ex 19: 6)
  • We can therefore infer that God’s intent when  He created Adam was the deposing of satan
  • God also intended that HIS  KINGDOM  OF RIGHTEOUSNESS would be transfered into the earth through an earthly ruler 
  • Adam’s job was to fill up the earth with God- like people who would worship and serve Him  AND keep the devil in his place so he would have no territory to occupy.
  • Adam and Eve were commanded to rule over the devil with strength;  prevail against him; run him out of their earth; and teach their descendants to rule as Kings and Princes in the earth. 
  • If  you scan through the Old Testament, you will discover that the nations of the earth understood the concept of ruling as Kings and Princes in the natural sense.  However, they gave up control  of the invisible realm to the devil, allowing him to subdue them and bring them into bondage of  many heinous sins.
  • Time does not permit, but you will see that God called Abraham a Father of  many nations.  Jacob was called a Prince because he had prevailed with God.  Ishmael was also a ruler who produced 12 princes, but ungodly men.


4.  There are two realms of  rulership – the natural and the invisible.

Here are some important questions that I would like you to answer:

  • Are you ruling  in the natural realm but a victim  to satan? 
  •  Are you like God or like satan?
  • Are you a member of  the Kingdom of  God or the Kingdom of  satan?
  • You will know whose Kingdom you belong to based on the beliefs and lifestyle practices that you pursue
  • God’s  Kingdom can be entered only by  a rebirth of that tainted, sinful spirit.  To read more about the transformation of  your spirit, please visit



1. What was the covenant that God made with Adam?

The Lord drew to my attention the covenant that He had made with Adam.  By virtue of the fact that Adam had been created by God,  the following  truths were established:


  • God automatically had exclusive rights to  be called Adam’s  God.  
  • God did not sign a licensure agreement with the devil or   give “resale rights”  to satan.  Even in a natural sense, people retain rights to their inventions and ideas, patenting them for protection. 
  • Adam  had a right to love and obey God.
  • Genesis explains God’s patent rights on human beings


God demonstrated His rights to Adam in several ways. By:

  • making  Adam  a replica of  Himself
  • breathing “His”   Spirit into Adam
  • preparing  a  home, food, wealth, leisurely occupation and a companion for him
  • testing him in the naming of animals to see how well he would reflect  the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, discernment etc of  God.  Animals come in species, categories etc so this was not as simplistic as it appeared.
  • Teaching Adam His Word
  • giving him a commandment  to obey His Word only as well as the dangers of  rebellion
  • giving him blessings of the covenant


2. Blessings that come with obedience of the covenant  with God – dominion.

When God initially revealed His thoughts about man, he said that  He would create him in His own image and likeness and let them have DOMINION  in the earth (Gen 1: 26).  Here are some important revelations:

  • God made man like Him and to have dominion like Himself.  God rules in heaven and earth is His footstool.
  • The dominion of  man was spoken in a  command in the same way that  God said “let there be light etc”
  • The  dominion of man is the INITIAL  blessing that is revealed and is  important  to the  Law of   Prominence.  
  • Being like God is related to the dominion of man
  • Dominion is inherent  to God’s nature.
  • God established the covenant even before the man was actually formed – this is His prophetic plan for the human race. We are His and should love and obey NO OTHER GOD.
  • Dominion meant that God delegated rulership of the earth to Adam and he was given the  title of  Earth King under God   


3. What is dominion?

Radah  (H 7287) is the Hebrew word used for DOMINION in Genesis 1: 26.  I tracked its usage in scripture and found the fascinating results:

  • dominion over the fish of the sea,  fowl of the air, cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth (Gen 1: 26 & 28).  Since we are speaking in the spiritual and natural, God commanded man to rule over satan.  Humans portray demons in the form of  fishes, cattle (the Hindus worship cattle); serpents (the  Greek demon of  medicine was a serpent around a staff), scorpions and creeping things  etc.  Now do you  understand why the serpent was more subtil than any other beast of the field?  How about the signs of the zodiac?
  • Dominion refers to ruling
  • Reigning over enemies, killing them, causing them to flee even when no chase is being made (Psalm 18)
  • Ruling over people, the mighty, noble, geographic regions  (Psalm 149; Daniel 10)
  • Delegating  authority to Chiefs and Princes who would rule the  people
  • Rule with strength – no one would revolt
  • To prevail

I gave additional references to show that  God gave man dominion in BOTH the natural realm and  invisible realm.  Humans have learnt how to tame wild animals  and harness the natural resources of earth to a greater extent.  However,  we are still held captive to a tormenter who holds great power and ability to bring people into addiction and death.  If dominion related solely to being wealthy, educated etc tell me why many wealthy people are drug addicts etc  and why nations are at war. 





Blessings and more to come!

1.  God told me to tell you that the temptation and fall of man is written in a parable 

It is important for us to understand that the account of the temptation and fall of man  is written in a parable.   God showed me that this parable is  parallel to  the way Jesus  taught  hidden truths about the Kingdom of  God by saying, “the Kingdom of heaven is like unto…”   

The parable of the temptation and fall of man is a behind the scenes view of the conflict between the Kingdom of heaven/God and the kingdom of  darkness.  It is written in a parable for several reasons:

  • to allow only seeing eyes to discover the truth
  • to show us the key players and scenarios in the conflict between the Kingdom of  God/heaven and satan
  • to show the ROOT  of the human condition – our spiritual eyes  that were designed to be open to God were ruthlessly gouged out by a merciless liar, murderer and thief.  Our fore parents were taken  into captivity and made to serve the devil, imprisoned in darkness of sin and ignorance of  God’ s  Word/truth.
  • to show that Adam came under satan’s control when he  broke his covenant with  God (say what? More on that later!)
  • to hide the sordid details of the sins and rebellion  of  Adam and Eve  (rated above R)
  • to show that  there is a natural and spiritual realm and how to identify the parallels in scriptures (only seeing eyes will see.  Father, please open my eyes).
  • to explain the nature of the conflict between the children of the kingdom of  God/heaven  and the kingdom of hell



2.   Key to the parable of the temptation and fall of man

  • the Lord God commanded the man =  Word of God; covenant with man
  • eat = practice; partake of;  believe the doctrine of  devils;  fellowship with devils (1 Corinthians 10)
  • surely die = your spirit will disconnect from Me; you will lose your purity;  you will die to truth; lose your authority to satan;  come under satan’s power and become his slave. 
  • Tree of life = Jesus, Word of God; Word of Life  
  • tree of the knowledge of good and evil = satan;  doctrine of devils, sin
  • fruit = doctrine; results; lifestyle
  • serpent = devil, satan
  • beast =   demon
  • field = earth


3. How do we explain the following events if the account of the  fall and temptation was written literally?

A. The death of  Adam and Eve by eating a fruit

  • Why didn’t Adam and Eve drop dead immediately after having eaten the fruit?
  • Would an apple kill anyone in the literal sense?
  • Wouldn’t it be more logical to say that the fruit was a  poison berry?
  • Why did satan make a new offer – you will not die but your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.

B. God told Adam and Eve that they would “surely die” the day that they ate the fruit. Did He mean instant,  physical death?  Not at all.  The aftermath revealed that  the results of the fall were  of a spiritual nature…

  • Adam and Eve did not drop dead immediately 
  • their eyes opened although they were not physically blind
  • they became aware of  their nakedness and became ashamed
  • They did not go to the grave immediately, but  God  killed an animal to atone for their sins  
  • Why didn’t God kill them Himself  if the “apple”  had failed to do so?  
  • God symbolically dressed them in leather in a climate that was perfect in order to help them cover their nakedness.  Humans are still obsessed over the issue of  external covering and  neglect the godly  growth and development  neglect the inner spirit. 
  • Why did God ban Adam and Eve from access to the literal tree of life if the initial death was intended to be a physical one? 

Blessings and more to come!

1. What did satan mean when he told Adam and Eve that their “eyes will be open”

Paqach (H6491) is word used for  the phrase “shall be opened” and is found 20 times in 18 verses in the KJV of the Old Testament.   I  read and categorized the usage of the word in each verse in order to understand what satan promised to eve. The opening of the eyes was  also used in these verses:

  • Adam and  Eve’s eyes were opened after they sinned (Gen 3: 7)
  • God opened Hagar’s eyes and she saw a well of water in the wilderness as she wandered with Ishmael her son (Gen 21: 19)
  • The son of the Shunnamite woman opened his eyes after Elijah resurrected him from the dead (2 Kings 4: 3 – 4)
  • Prophet Elisha prayed for his servant’s eyes to be opened, thus allowing him to see the invisible angels surrounding and protecting them  (2 Kings 6)
  • Prophet Elisha blinded the Syrian army then told them he could show them the way home, but led them instead to the  King of Israel (2 Kings 6: 18 – 20)
  • Prophet Isaiah spoke about Jesus who would open the blind eyes and bring the blind out of the prisons (Isa 42: 7)



2.  What does the word  “paqach”  reveal about the opening of  the eyes?

Paqach is the same word used  in the phrase ““the opening the prison” in Isaiah 61: 1.  I wrote about this truth a few days ago at     http://pppministries.wordpress.com/2010/04/13/gods-exchange-…owledge-of-god/

In order to fully  understand the temptation and fall of Adam and Eve, we have to interpret the context  in a spiritual and not a natural sense.   This truth of interpretation will be supported when we answer  FIVE  questions:

  1. Were Adam and Eve were in full possession of their sight? Yes
  2. Since they were not physically blind, why did satan promise to open their eyes?
  3. Why did he promise them the knowledge of good and evil?
  4. Why do we commonly assume that the fruit of the tree was  an apple?
  5. Why would an apple kill two healthy people (“it keeps the doctor away”)

The current usage of  the word paqach reveals the following truths:

  • By telling Eve that her   eyes would be opened to good and evil, Satan suggested that God had hidden something from them, arousing resentment against God.
  • By telling them that their eyes would be opened to good and evil, satan suggested that they were dead.  God had told them they would die if they had this information.
  • Satan aroused lust for the knowledge of good and evil by giving  Eve a demonstration of power. This is suggested as  the dialogue said – “when the woman saw… “
  • Adam and Eve  received information that they had not know prior to  this exposure.  This is seen in the opening of Hagar’s eyes to a well that had either been hidden to her OR one that God had placed in her path.
  • They received information about the invisible realm that God wanted to protect them from
  • Satan promised them that the opening of  their eyes would make them become like God, implying a form of rebellion against God that was equal to the one that led to his exile from heaven.



1. The goring out of the captive’s eyes

I’ve been writing about the horrific practices of  oppressors who would take captives  in war and other forms of aggression. The captives and their families would be bound and taken off  to foreign lands as slaves.  Not satisfied, the captors would in some cases GORE OUT THE EYES of the captive as in the catastrophic situation of  Samson and also King  Zedekiah of  Judah whose eyes were gored out by the Babylonians. 

These captives would not have been given an anesthetic and a hot metal  instrument would be used for this  procedure. The captors  would mercilessly restrain the captives as they kicked and screamed against the searing, relentless agony.  Dripping and bleeding, the captives would then be forced to walk  the long miles to the prison house, not afforded any privileges of their status. Samson was a President and Zedekiah a King. 


2. Adam and Eve were the first captives whose eyes were gored out  by satan 

According to Ezekiel 28, spurred by his own beauty, wisdom, influence and wealth, the devil said, “I am a God, I sit in the seat of God in the midst of the seas”.  This is the place where God’s throne is surrounded by the sea of glass (Rev 4: 6).   Satan had once been a very important person in heaven.   He had been present in the Garden of Eden and was at one time  a prodigious musician and priest who played a leading role in heaven.   Forgetting that he was a created being, satan warred against God, but  Archangel Michael threw him  out of heaven so fast that he and his demons fell to the earth with the speed and electricity of lightning (Lk 10: 18  Rev 12: 7-10 ).

Once in the earth, satan determined that he would rule the earth and its inhabitants and establish himself as god in the earth and its airspaces.  However, he had heard God telling Adam and Eve to subdue the earth and have dominion over all its living creatures.  He knew that that these were military tactics and that Adam and Eve had authority to overpower him with the word of  God and  rule him.  

Therefore, in order to rule the earth from them, satan had to EITHER to Kill  Adam and Eve OR take them into captivity, bind them hands and feet,  and gore out their eyes.  By blinding them to God’s  truth, they would be unable to obey God and he. satan, would have control of their power forever. 

Studying Adam and Eve carefully, he discovered that Eve was more likely to give up her power in exchange for something that he could give to her. 

Here are the tactics that satan used against Adam and Eve:

  • he introduced a suggestion of doubt to Eve when he asked “hath God said?”
  • He told Eve that she would not surely die if she ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  His first choice was to kill them.
  • He told her that her eyes would be opened 
  • Adam and Eve would be like God (The lust to be God and rule heaven and earth lay at the root of satan’s fall)
  • You will  know good and evil 






The Lord alerted me today that some people are having great difficulty believing that the devil is represented in the book of Genesis by the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This is because we have been taught, for some reason,  that Adam and Eve ate an apple in the garden.  I need therefore to add further clarity. If you read Genesis and the scriptures carefully, you will find that the word fruit, while meaning real fruits produced by trees, is also used to represent:

  1. teachings or doctrine
  2. evidence of the inner condition of the spirit
  3. people e.g. offspring
  4. productivity
  5. words are the fruit of the mouth
  6. work done for  God

1. Fruit or food (s) are used to refer to teachings or doctrines

God told the Jews that they had “… plowed wickedness … reaped iniquity… eaten the fruit of lies:” (Hosea 10: 13).  False prophets had been lying to them causing them to sin, just like the false prophet in the garden of Eden, who had appeared in such a pleasant and engaging manner to Eve. Jesus told us to beware of false prophets, because they are ravening wolves inside. Satan was a ravening wolf,  mercilessly killing  Adam and Eve, a murderer from the beginning as the Lord said.

Jesus also used the imagery of food if not fruit, to refer to His teachings. He said:

  • eat my flesh and drink my blood (Jn 6: 53-60)
  • I am the Bread of Life (Jn 6: 48-51). My teachings will give you life, but beware of the leaven of the scribes and Pharisees
  • I am the Living Bread (Jn 6: 53-60)
  • that the bread of the Last Supper represented his body while the wine represented HIs blood
  • I am the Water of Life (Jn 7: 37-39)

Apostle Peter also told the disciples to desire the sincere milk of the word for spiritual growth.

Science shows that the food that we eat will either nourish or harm our cells, leading to growth or death.  Poor nutrition will lead to obesity, cancer and other nutritional disorders. The devil’s diet led to the immediate death of Adam and  Eve’s spirit (loss of fellowship with God, infection with sin) AS WELL AS slow physical deterioration and death.  Will you eat or believe and practice the devil’s doctrine which is really based on half-truths OR will you believe the pure word of God and be saved? (Jn 8: 51).

2. Fruit is used to refer to the outward evidence of the inner condition of the spirit

People who obey God’s wisdom will produce its fruit such as an excellent spirit, prudence etc while those who refuse to follow His  wisdom will produce fruits of perversion, frowardness etc (Prov 8).

God told Jeremiah that He deals with people according to the “fruit of our doings”:

“I the LORD search the heart, [I] try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the fruit of his doings”  (Jer 17: 10)

We saw that Adam and Eve produced fruits of their sins. They began to cover up, hide from God an they became evasive. He had to deal with them accordingly by preventing access to the tree of Life.  While the fruit of sin will bring forth death and every evil work, the fruit or evidence of God in a believer will be God – like characteristics such as love, joy, peace etc (Gal 5: 22-23)

3. Fruit referred to  people

Fruit was used to refer to people such as offspring who were called “fruit of thy body” (Deut 28: 4); and fruit of the womb  (Ps 127: 3). God called the nation of Israel a “basket of summer fruit” that has only a temporary lifespan (Amos 8: 1,2).

Jesus referred in His teaching on false prophets, referred to two types –  good or bad false prophets or trees which produce good or bad fruit. In this parable, he said that we will know what is hidden in the prophet’s spirit by the fruit they produce. Good/true prophets trees will produce good fruit, while corrupt prophets/trees will produce corrupt fruit  (Mt 7: 15-20). If we apply Jesus’ revelation to the sin in the Garden, we will immediately understand that Adam and  Eve had no problems before they submitted to the temptation of  satan the false prophet.  He was false because he mixed truth with lies that would lead to eternal death.  Adam and Eve’s descendents were plagued by the knowledge of good and evil whose fruit was hatred, murder, lies, violence and all forms of rebellion against God.

 4. Fruit referred to productivity

Those who  fear the Lord will be productive  (Ps 1: 3) even  in their old age (Ps 92: 14).  In the parable of the Gardener and the vine, Jesus referred to unproductive believers who bore no  fruit. They had withered and dried up as a result of disconnecting from fellowship with Him. This was the situation of Adam and Eve as well as Cain. Like the branch in the parable of  John 15, they were now worthy of nothing but to be cast out of the Garden. God in His mercy, however, purged them, but did not permit them to physically live forever. Cain was cast out however, because he refused to bring forth fruits of repentance and remained obstinate about his sin.

Fruit referred to words that  we speak

Scriptures also refer to words as the fruit of the lips. If we speak good, we will reap good, but people speaking violence reap violence (Prov 12: 14  &13:2). We are also told that we will either live or die based on what we say with our lips. Proverbs 18: 21 teaches that if we love life we will speak life, but if we love death we will speak with the lips.

Jesus said that the things that come out of our mouths are really evidence of what we possess in our spirits. The spirit or the inner person is really a store house. If good is inside the spirit, we will speak good, while an evil person will bring forth evil from the spirit:

 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh (Lk 6: 45).

 Fruit referred to evidence of our work done for God

God expects believers to bring forth fruit, symbolic of other believers (Jn 15: 8).

Blessings and have a great day!

1. The devil is the serpent who tempted them

While the  word serpent is used literally in scriptures, it is used figuratively to represent wicked people who are venemous like serpents (Ps 58: 4); people who bite when they are not charmed (Ecc 10: 11). The word dragon  is also used in both Old and New Testament as a synonym for serpent. For example:

  • Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon (Strongs 8577 = tanniyn) shalt thou trample under feet   (Ps 91: 13)
  •  For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents (Strongs 8577 = tanniyn) : but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods (Ex 7: 12)

Rev 12: 9 is the scripture that clearly shows that the devil is the serpent that taught Adam and Eve to sin:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man-child (Rev 12: 7, 9, 13)

This scripture refers also to past events when the devil rebelled and was cast out into the earth.  Chief Prince Michael cast him out of heaven so hard that Jesus chuckled and said that he fell like lightning (Luke 10: 18).  Once on the earth, Eve became a target.  

Genesis 3: 1 explains that the devil, the serpent (Strongs 5175 = nachash) was more subtil or crafty (Strongs H6175 = `aruwm) than any beast of the field.

2. Eve had befriended the devil, spending time with him

God called the devil a beast,  a derogatory statement.  Micheal told me that the devil is not even worthy to be called an “it”. That beast, the devil, used a friendly approach which led to Eve succumbing to his teachings.  God revealed this friendship between them when He  told the serpent that He would break up their friendship and cause them to hate each other:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Gen 3: 15).

God’s words to the devil shows us that Eve and the devil had become great friends, although they had been expressly forbidden. The Lord had told them not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. However, Eve was presented with a mixture of truth and lies. The devil spoke  truth when he said that her eyes would open and that she would become like a god, knowing good and evil if she did what he said. However, she believed him rather than God when he lied and said that she would not die.  

She and the devil had become friends. She looked at his presentation and saw that the tree THE DEVIL, was pleasant (she did not discern the deception). Furthermore, she really believed that he had the ability to make them “wise” (Gen 3: 6). Eve became resentful, believing that God had hidden knowledge from them and that she and Adam should have access to this knowledge. Following the devil’s instructions, she and her husband did all kinds of things that God knew would harm their spirits and their relationship with Him.

3. The devil, representing the tree of knowledge of good and evil influenced them to do so

Why  did God permit the devil into the earth? That’s another discussion.  Why was he called the tree of knowledge of good and evil? (Gen 2: 9). What is bad about “good”? Minister Winston first taught me in 2006 that God used the imagery of a tree to represent people – Satan (tree of knowledge of good and evil) and Jesus (Tree of Life). Following God’s example, writers in Scripture continued with the imagery.  For example, the  writer of Psalm 1 compared those who walked in God’s ways to trees that bring forth fruit in his season (Ps 1: 3). Adam and Eve were warned not to eat from the tree. That is, do not eat its fruit.

4.  They sinned because they believed satan’s knowledge and submitting to his way of evil, gained access to death

Eve, having listened to this pleasant-looking devil, took what he said and invited Adam to join in the quest for his version of knowledge and wisdom.  However, we have spoken already about the disastrous effects. What was the fruit that Eve ate? Was it an apple, as we commonly say? As I said in the previous post, the word fruit is used literally in scripture until Proverbs 8, when it is used figuratively.  My mind blew when I read this chapter this morning and I had to do so repeatedly. 

God’s wisdom, which existed before the earth, is personified, crying to us to listen to it. The chapter does three things:

  1. highlights the characteristics of wisdom, which is really an element of God’s character or Spirit
  2. it contrasts God’s wisdom with the devil’s wisdom
  3. it reveals that God is the source of true wisdom (Prov 8: 22-34

Wisdom is a characteristic of God’s Spirit and those who respect Him will  also be wise. God, who is Wisdom, reveals this as follows. God:

  • has an excellent spirit (like Jesus and Daniel)
  • speaks right things, truth (satan lied), righteousness
  • hates to speak wickedness, or anything froward or perverse
  • instructs
  • is prudent
  • discovers witty inventions
  • hates evil, pride, arrogancy, a froward mouth
  • counsels right, gives sound wisdom, is understanding and strength
  • bestows power to kings, nobles and princes
  • gives judges the ability judge
  • loves those who love Him
  • reveals Himself to those who seek Him early
  • gives durable or lasting riches and honor (not one that is gained by foul means)
  • is the way of righteousness and judgement (Adam, Eve and the devil were judged fairly)

God is the source of wisdom/He is wisdom

In very eloquent and majestic  words, Proverbs 8: 22- 32 shows that God was wisdom before the beginning, from everlasting, even before the earth was created and at its creation. His way leads to joy,  blessings, wealth, life and favor with God.

Proverbs 8 shows some of the elements of the spirit of the devil. Satan is every thing that God is not. He is perverse, lacking understanding, a liar, perverse, speaks and does evil. He is froward (Strongs 8419) – lacking faith in God (Deut 32: 20); speaks evil things (Prov 2: 12); rejoices and delights in evil (Prov 2: 14),  plans evil and mischief and sows discord (Prov 6: 14 and 16: 30); does not speak what is acceptable (Prov 10: 32); spreads tales and separates chief  friends (Prov 16: 28); lusts after women and commits adultery in the heart  (Prov 23: 33).

Now I would like to ask if you know anyone with any of these characteristics. You do? Then think of what the devil is possibly like on a small scale. Using Proverbs 8 as reference, you can explore the Hebrew words relating to the elements of God’s wisdom. This will point you to all that the devil is not.  I hope that this teaching instructed you just as it instructed me.  Let us pray that God will give us the spirit of discernment that He possesses.  He answered all of the questions in the Garden, needing no one to tell Him exactly what had happened. If you are weak and falling to temptations, there are many ways in which you can be helped. Start by confessing, asking for cleansing, then walking with the Lord for protection and deliverance from the evil one.





1. Introduction

Adam and Eve were created in the image and likeness  of God (Gen 1: 26-27; 5: 1,2).   However, they followed the devil’s teachings and gave him access to their spirits by obeying him. They therefore took darkness in to their spirits when they sinned against  God.  Here is what happened:

  • Satan taught Adam and Eve godless, sinful behaviors that were not a part of their spirits at the creation. God had breathed His Spirit into them and they were pure and innocent when in the sinless state. As a result of sin, their spirits  lost the light of God and they came under the dominion of the kingdom of darkness. 1 John 1: 5b says that God is Light and there is absolutely no darkness in Him. In fact, Light was the first thing that God imparted to the earth.
  • The spiritual DNA of sin and rebellion against God was passed on to all humans and all humans came under the curse of sin (1 Cor 15: 22, 45). 
  • Satan and his ways represented the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  To explain further, the word “fruit”  is used literally in scriptures until  Proverbs 8: 19 when wisdom said that her fruit was better than life.  While good things are the fruit of wisdom,  Proverbs 8 showed that those who lack wisdom are wicked, perverse, lack understanding, pride, arrogancy among others. This is a true picture of the devil.  To illustrate further, Jesus also used the  imagery of fruit to describe the outward evidence of the true condition of wicked human spirits (Matt 7: 15-23). 

 2. The fruit of sin in Adam and Eve

What was the fruit of  Adam and Eve’s sin? They had eaten or partook of the devil’s doctrine and now showed evidences that they had learnt new behaviors:

* they became aware of sin – eyes opened and they knew they were naked, having become aware of  desire, lust and sin.

* they began to cover up – noone admitted to his/her role in the rebellion. Adam blamed Eve and Eve blamed the devil.  We know that  Adam was fully aware of what he was doing (1 Tim 2: 14).

* They became afraid of God and began  to run from rather than  to Him – they hid and did not reveal their location to the Lord.

3.  Can sin be transferred?

Yes. There is a law of spiritual inheritance, just as there is a law of physical inheritance.  This is the reason that Cain, the first child, learnt to sin? Adam and Eve became infected with the sin trait and possessed the ability to pass on the sin DNA to their offspring. God had given them His DNA – which was every thing pertaining to life and godliness. Adam and Eve were created to be righteous, faithful, fearing God, understanding the fear of God fruitful, full of might, wise, self controlled etc. They were also created to be productive – to be fruitful, multiply, replenish  and subdue the earth. However, sin created blackened infection in Adam and Eve’s  spirits, causing their spirits to lose the light and life of God.  This was now an unnecessary burden for the human spirit to bear. The spirit of man now has a craving for wrongdoing and sin became the chronic infection of the spirit, in the same way that an untreated illness becomes chronic or even fatal. In the same way that offspring inherit all kinds of physical traits from parents, the trait of sin passed on to all of Adam and Eve’s offspring.  

 I’d like to use an example from scripture to illustrate.  Jesus warned the disciples to beware of the leaven or doctrine of the Pharisees (Mt 16: 11,12). Apostle Paul later warned the disciples that  a little leaven  or yeast leaveneth the whole lump (Gal 5: 9). In other words, it only takes a little bit of yeast in flour to make a large amount of bread. It only takes one wrong person or doctrine to lead others astray. Apostle Paul also aptly stated that ‘as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Cor 15: 22). First child Cain is a sad example of the effect of sin in the human race.

Here are other examples. Isaac’s wife Rebekah was a devious woman and taught her son Jacob to lie to his father and cheat his brother. She learnt from her father and brother Laban.  Jacob’s wife’s Rachel stole her father’s idol and lied about it. She learnt from her father Laban, the master trickster who was famous for cheating his nephew Jacob. OK. Enough of the soaps!  Jacob’s wives Rachel and Leah (who were sisters) vied violently with each other for Jacob’s favor, often involving their children. What kind of example were they setting?  We don’t know what transpired in the Adam and Eve home, but somehow Cain learnt from them. Moreover, the devil might have had conversations with him. I somehow feel that satan played a role in the murder of Abel, a true worshipper of God.

I think that I should stop here, but there is a lot more to cover. Thanks for reading. Blessings.

1. Review of how we came around to the 70 year countdown

In a previous post about the fourth World Super Power of Daniel 7, I began to explore the meaning of a statement, “dividing of times” in Daniel 7: 25:

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.

I wrote the following posts in succession in order to answer that question and discovered that God set patterns in place for the occurrence of  events in history that related to the Birth of Messiah. As I write and review the patterns, I see clearly that three Super Powers – Babylonian, Median – Persian and Roman  played a key role in these 70 year countdowns:

What Is The Dividing (pĕlag/H6387) Of Times In The Holy Scriptures?

“Times” In The Earth – Countdown In Sevens – Eras Of Time

Review Of Archangel Gabriel’s Prophecies: Where is The 2014 Earth In God’s 70 Year Calendar?

2. Amazing Discovery #1 –  There Is A Division, Matching And Mapping Of Time Between Creation And The Time Of The Birth Of Christ

As I reviewed  “Times” In The Earth – Countdown In Sevens – Eras Of Time, I became curious about the year in which the earth was divided. Scripture tells us that it was at the time of Peleg’s birth. I discovered that from the post  How Old Is The Earth? that Peleg was born in 1757. Ha! Here is 7 reemphasized in 1757! God is saying something to us!

Even more curious, I reviewed the timeline in the post “Times” In The Earth – Countdown In Sevens – Eras Of Time to see if there was any match. To my amazement, 1750 was the first year of the 25th seventy year countdown from AD 70  or from the birth of Christ.

Since 1750 was the first year of a new 70 year countdown and 1757 was the first 7th Year in that countdown (1750 to 1820), we can induce that God counted that 7 as a Year of Release. .

In 1757 God released the earth from the Babel Rebellion by dividing the languages and by scattering the people upon the earth in keeping with His command to Adam and Eve.

As I examined the data and saw that 1757 CE was the 7th year of a new 70 year countdown, God opened my eyes and I saw that there was an exact match between time from Creation and time from the birth of Christ. Time was prophetically divided at the time of the birth of Christ.

I asked the question, what are the corresponding events in 1757 CE? Can humans predict future historic events based on this matching of time?

God in His Wisdom divided time, thus simplifying the matter of  humans redeeming time. He did so because He knew that  modern day humans would count time backwards up to the birth of Christ, then forward thereafter, confusing the issue. Humans count time backward, because by and large, they are confused about when time began. God in His Wisdom confirms that time began at His Creation of Earth.

The First Day of the Birth of Christ = The First Day of Creation.

Prophetically speaking, the Light of the World appeared on the Day of the Messiah’s birth

Day of Messiah’s Birth = Creation Day 1 or Year 1 of Earth

70 CE



























1960 – 1967 + 1974 + 1981 + 1988 + 1995 + 2002 + 2007 (SEVEN 7s) + 2014 (first of a new seven) + 2021+ 2128 + 2135 + 2142+ 2149 +


3. Other Examples Related To The Matching Of Time Between Creation And The Time Of The Birth Of Christ

I refer to the post How Old Is The Earth?

  • 66 CE – Great Jewish Revolt against the Roman Government.
  • 66th Year after Creation  – Was this the Year of Adam and Eve’s Rebellion?
  • The 1960s in earth history are equated with
  • 70 CE - destruction of Herod’s Temple. Was this the time of the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden?
  • 1948 – Abraham was born.
  • 1948 - May 15th. Israel was reborn as a nation.  This was God’s birthday gift to their Patriarch Abraham.
  • This means that Israel experienced 1878 years of exile, four times the number spent in Egypt. There are still Jews to be repatriated. Meantime, their cries go up to heaven as they labor under adverse conditions in many nations. Lord, please hear your people and have mercy.

  • February  17th 1656 BC – First day of the Flood of Noah’s era.
  • 1656The Jews were expelled from Britain in 1290 uder the reign of King Edward I and re-admitted in 1656 under the Cromwellian Protectorate (The Cromwell Association, 2001, Visit Jewish London, nd). Archangel Gabriel thanks the British.
  • 2014 – Abraham was 66 years old.
  • 2048 - Isaac was born. Which key world leader would be born into the Jewish nation in 2048?
  • 4288 - Birth of Messiah. Will the earth be here in 4288? I believe so.

4. Other matches in Jewish history related to the 70 year Countdown

June 6 – 10, 1967 – six day Israeli war in which Israel destroys the Egyptian air force on the ground, conquers and occupies Sinai and Gaza, conquers the West Bank from Jordan and the Golan Heights from Syria.

1967 symbolizes a Release since it is the 7th Year after 1960, which is the first year of the 28th seventy year from AD 70. June also matches Day 3 of Creation in which God moved the waters of oppression from over the earth and dry land appeared.


Archangel Gabriel just told me that the doctrine of the dividing of times can be explored from many angles. Humans must understand the dividing of times or eras in order to be able to live in wisdom in the earth and to know where we are on God’s Prophetic Calendar.  I refer you again to “Times” In The Earth – Countdown In Sevens – Eras Of Time.


Israel’s War of Independence

During the early hours of the morning of Thursday 11th December, 2014, I dreamt that I was standing on the shore of the beach in Kingstown, somewhere around Rose Place. I faced the land and my back was towards the ocean.

In the dream, I was standing at the base of a powerful, huge wave of white water about 6 feet high. I could feel the force of the water, but held my right hand up in the middle of that wave, I spoke and commanded it to return in the name of Jesus. The dream then ended.

The Father assured me that St. Vincent and the Grenadines will not be affected by tsunamis and I am standing firm on His Promise. I am however, reminding Vincentians to place the Father at the center of this season. It is about Christ, although it is not really the time He was really born.

Let us remember the sad events of Christmas Eve 2013 when the nation was flooded as in the days of Noah and several Vincentians lost their lives. I therefore urge every one to take the time to worship, reflect and focus on heaven – Peace on Earth, good will to men.

Archangel Gabriel revealed the 2014 Earth’s position in God’s 70 Year Calendar or Countdown

I ended the previous post with a 70 year countdown from the Year AD 70 which was the time of the Jewish exile from the land of Israel. AD 70 was also the 70th year after the Birth of Christ the Messiah. Archangel Gabriel gave a prophecy to us through beloved Prophet Daniel which revealed that there would be 70 year countdowns from the declaration of the rebuilding of Jerusalem and release from the Babylonian captivity to the birth of Messiah:

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and (plus) threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the prince of the people that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined (Dan 9: 25 & 26).

King Cyrus gave this declaration in 539 BC. In a previous article titled, Countdown To The Messiah – Time of His Birth, Ezra the scribe confirmed this in Ezra 1: 1 – 3:

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah
Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem

I showed that from 539BC, time of the fulillment of the prophecy, the countdown took place as follows:

    • 7 seventy years (490 years) from 539 BC to 119 BC then7 seven year periods (49 years) from 49 BC.
    • The birth of Messiah was in the 50th year of that countdown.
    • 7 seven year periods (49 years) from 119 BC to the time of the birth of Christ.
    • Therefore we know that Christ was born in the Year of Jubilee.
    • Microscopically, these countdowns parallel the celebration of the Feast of Weeks, which is from Passover to Pentecost.We see that Jubilee is parallel to Pentecost, the time of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit..


A new 70 year countdown begin at the Year of the Lord’s advent

We can safely begin a new 70 year countdown from the birth of Christ based on Archangel Gabriel’s prophecy and the timing of the exile from the land in AD 70. This is God’s way of confirming the Archangel Gabriel – Daniel prophecy as well as Jeremiah’s prophecy regarding the 70 year exile. AD 70 was a significant clue to remind the Jews about Jeremiah’s prophecy and to remind His people to call on God.

However, when counting earth’s position in God’s calendar, we need to refer to the calendar given to Moses and the Jews. The birth of Christ took place on this calendar, in which April or Abib is the first Jewish month and September is the 6th Jewish month given on the Jewish calendar.

The timing of this calendar was confirmed because Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary in the 6th Jewish month, parallel to the day of Adam’s creation and to announce the creation of the last Adam:

And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adamwas made a quickening spirit (1 Corinthians 15: 45).

And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit (1 Corinthians 15: 45).

Key patterns revealed in the 70 year countdown which give a clue to the interpretation of time

Let us review key events in earth history since then, beginning with the Jews then other nations.

As I reviewed Countdown To The Messiah – Time of His Birth, I saw key patterns during the 70 year countdown which took place from the fulfillment of Archangel Gabriel’s prophecies. We need to pay attention to the repition of these patterns in Arab, Jewish and World history and events:

This is seen in 539 BC – 1st year of the 1st 70 year of the 490 year countdown.

a. Appearance of new World Empires/Superpowers (Middle East, ??others) with

b. key interconnections occur between the Empire of the Medes and Persians and the Jewish diaspora/nation in the beginning of a 70 year countdown with

c a stirring up in the Jews to return to God

  • King Cyrus conquers the Babylonian Empire from Belshazzar the Babylonian.
  • His Empire of the Medes and Persians represents the ram with two horns (Daniel 8: 20).
  • King Cyrus passes a law regarding the release of the Jews for the rebuilding of the Temple and circulates this throughout the Empire
  • God stirred up the spirit of the “chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites… . to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem” (Ezra 1: 5).
  • Ezra wrote that the people who went up from the captivity repossessed their cities by the 7th Jewish month = October. This is prophetically significant since it aligned perfectly with the Blowing of the Trumpets (day 1), Day of Atonement (Day 10) and Feast of Tabernacles.
  • Parallels AD 70 with the exile from Israel by the hand of the Romans, 4th beast of Daniel 8..

330 BC – 2nd year of the 4 th 70 year countdown

a. New World Power arises/takes over previous.

b. New era in the earth

c. forcible conquest of earth peoples with their forcible conversion to the belief system of the new world order

  • Alexander the Great conquers the Empire of the Medes and Persians in fulfillment of prophecy (Daniel
  • Alexander’s kingdom/SuperPower, represents the rough goat of Daniel 8: 21
  • Alexander attempted to convert the world religion, politics, culture to Greek.
  • this 4th 70 year represents a new era/season of time in the earth.

BC 63 – Romans conquered Jerusalem

a. Emergence of a new World Power

b. social, political, religious, moral implications for the planet, Jews and Christians.

c. humans are worshipped as god

d. rigorous persecution of Christians

e. birth of the Messiah 63 years later.

e. Murder of the Messiah 95 years later in a joint collaboration between Jewish religious and Roman political system

f. Represents the 4th beast of Daniel 8

  • occurred during the final 70 year countdown of the 490 years .
  • this final 70 of 490 years occurred between 119 BC – 70 BC.
  • BC 63 represents the 63rd year of this final 70 year countdown
  • and the 482 nd year of the 490 countdown
  • Romans conquered Jerusalem (last 7 years of this period63rd

BC 7 – Archangel Gabriel appears to Mary in the 6th Jewish month

  • announcement of Messiah’s birth
  • end of 400 years of silence from heaven.
  • renewal and restoration of the Jewish race.
  • salvation of all nations from sins


The key is to match these periods of time with the 70 year countdown in the post “Times” In The Earth – Countdown In Sevens – Eras Of Time .

I believe that we will also be elicit patterns in history and to possibly chart future patterns in order to redeem the times since the days are evil.



  • the 1st year of a new 70 year period
  • 4th 70 year period since 20 AD
  • this is a twin – 1st and 4th – a new era
  • 6 is the creation of man
  • 1960s represented the creation of a new, rebellious world order of new age, hippie movement and drug culture, removal of prayer and bible from schools, Civil Rights Movement.
  • Instead of light, the earth entered a period of darkness which still has deleterious effects on the nations, particularly America which led this movement.


  • first of a new 7
  • 8th of the 70th which started in 1960
  • emergence of a new Islamic state in Iraq, with implications for Christians, Jews and other infidels.


Archangel Gabriel on the seventy year countdown to the birth of the Messiah

Archangel Gabriel on the seventy year countdown to the birth of the Messiah

Cyrus  King Of Persia aka King Darius The Mede, Son of Ahasuerus

Review of the previous post

In the previous post I answered the question  What Is The Dividing (pĕlag/H6387) Of Times In The Holy Scriptures?  Based on my current understanding of the scriptures, I believe that the fourth beast will reign until God overturns its rule by overtaking the kingdom with the Kingdom of Christ.This will be timed by the appearance of the eleventh horn.

As I wrote last week’s post, I wondered how God counts times and eras – then the answer came clearly. I was reminded about the prophecy that Archangel Gabriel gave to Prophet Daniel about the TIMING of the Messiah’s birth. The Archangel said that Messiah’s arrival would be timed in 70 year Countdowns.

God counts time in 7s and we need to understand the prophetic significance of the Law of 7s in order to

  • correctly interpret the timing of events prophesied in the scriptures
  • understand the season of time in earth history and current affairs
  • understand our plan and purpose in the earth

God taught the Law of 7s  to the human race

Scriptures re veal that God set out the Law of 7s  to symbolize creation, full completion of an event and the onset of a new era.  Our Father God set the pattern for counting time in 7s and we see that early members of the human race understood and applied the  Principle or Law of 7s.

I see too, from the examples in scripture, that God revealed the Law of 7s to the entire human race and not just to the Jews who were selected as a nation of worshipers from the human rebels of earth.

The Law of 7s was therefore practiced by the Creator and therefore by our early ancestors:

  • 7 days of creation freed the earth from nothingness.
  • God rested on the 7th day, showing by example that the human body and spirit need to recuperate.
  • God commanded Noah to take the animals into the Ark by 7s before the flood.
  • God sent the flood 7 days after Noah and his family were safe in the Ark.
  • The ark rested in the 7th month, on the 17th day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat –  Genesis 8: 4.
  • Noah sent forth a dove to see if the water had abated from the earth, but it returned to the Ark. He waited for  7 days before sending it out again.
  • Noah waited another 7 days before sending out the dove, but it did not return. Seven + seven = 14. It took a double seven of time before the earth lost the waters and was recreated as in the beginning.
  • The earth dried on the 7 and 20th day of the second month.

Do you know that God sent the Flood because the people were too busy to include Him in their lives? The Father just told me that they never rested  much less  worshipped. They lived carefree lives of fun, parties, pleasure and drunkenness. Jesus told us that they were consumed with eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.

Jesus reveals too, that the earliest members of the human race  believed in and practiced male – female marriage and walked on two legs rather than on all fours – Luke 17: 27.

  • Lamech lived 777 years while everyone in his time lived to over 800 +.
  • Jacob, poor soul, served 7 years for Rachel.
  • Jacob bowed  7 times to the ground when he met his brother Esau after years of bitter separation.
  • King Pharaoh’s dream about 7 years of famine featured animals and ears of corn in  groups of  7s.

I asked the Father (an aside) why He didn’t reveal the imminent famine to Jacob. The response that Jacob did not have the resources to prepare and would have panicked.

God applied the  ceremonial laws of 7s in the Jewish Tabernacle:

  • 7 lamps in the Tabernacle.
  • the High Priest wore his garments for 7 days of ministry.
  • 7 days of consecration for the priests and the items pertaining to the Altar.
  • the priest dipped his finger in the sacrificial blood and sprinkled it 7 times before the vail of the sanctuary.

Laws of 7s related to health

  • a woman who delivered a male child was to remain unclean for 7 days.
  • 7 days of isolation for skin infections.

Laws of 7s applies to major feasts of the earth, as revealed to the Jews

  • In the fourteenth day (7+ 7) of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover – a double rest – Leviticus 23: 5.
  • The Feast of Unleavened bread began on on the fifteenth day of the first month – Leviticus 23: 6.
  • 7 days for the Feast of Unleavened bread, a rest and fast from leaven and lengthy work of bread making & giving of offerings to the Lord – Exodus 12: 15, 19, Leviticus 23: .
  • Count 7 sabbaths from the day after the Passover, then celebrate the Feast of Pentecost on the 50th day with firstfruit offerings to be waved to the Lord – Leviticus 23: 15.  Now we celebrate the Death & Resurrection of the Lord.
  • A memorial of blowing of trumpets is to be celebrated on the first day of the 7th Jewish month. It was a sabbath, , and a holy convocation unto the Lord – Leviticus 23: 34 – 40.
  • The tenth day of this 7th month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you. This is the time for the church to intercede for the nations
  • The fifteenth day of this 7th month shall be the Feast of tabernacles for 7 days unto the LORD – Leviticus 23: 34.
  • There was a 7 day celebration with waving of branches and dwelling in booths.  The booths symbolized the Blood washed Body/Tabernacle/House/Temple of Christ gathering in His House to worship and praise Him.

Law of 7s applies to Civil Law

  • Celebrate a Sabbath of Rest every 7th year – Leviticus 25: 4.
  • There was a Release of debts at the end of every 7 seven years – Deuteronomy 15.
  • The Jews were commanded to number 7 sabbaths of Years then to celebrate the Jubilee every 50th year – Leviticus 25: 8.
  • The Year of Jubilee was ushered with the trumpet of the Jubilee on the tenth day/day of atonement of the 7th month. This Divine parallel of the Day of Atonement with the ushering of the Year of Jubilee symbolized our freedom in Christ, a shadow of THINGS TO COME.
  • 70 years for the land to rest until the return from the captivity – divine punishment for rebellion and failure to enter the natural and spiritual rest of God.

The Law of 7s applied to the entrance of  Messiah

Other application of the Law of 7s

  • enemies would flee 7 ways if they attacked the obedient – Deuteronomy 28: 7
  • To conquer Jericho, God instructed that the army was to march around the city once a day for six days and 7 times on the 7th day. Seven priests carrying trumpets were to go before the ark and were to blow the trumpets on the 7th day. The army was commanded to shout when the priests made a long blast with the ram’s horn in order to topple the walls – Joshua 6: 4 (man/new season).
  • Samson had 7 miraculous locks of hair which were never cut – until Delilah.
  • Elijah told Naaman to wash 7 times in the Jordan in order to be healed of leprosy – 2 Kings 5: 10.
  • Jesus fed 4000 plus people with 7 loaves and got 7 baskets of bread at the end of the meal – Mark 8: 6 – 8.
  • The Book of Revelation is full of 7s.

Next time I will attempt  to show how God divides time into eras using the Law of 7s. However, I wrote previously about the Countdown to the Messiah, which is a classical example of how the Father measures time.We will not be lost and will actually become prophetic people when we understand and apply this Law of 7s. Halelujah.

Seven in the scriptures

Review of the meaning of times in the previous post

The previous post was titled, “What Is The Time, Times And The Dividing Of Time In Daniel 7: 25?” In the post, I explored the meaning of times in the text of Daniel 7: 25 and concluded that it could refer to eras of time.

In contrast, we saw that a parallel,  time, times and half a time (Revelation 12), referred to the 3. 45 years duration of time in which  Jesus and His family remained in Egypt in order to escape Herod’s murder of young children living in Israel.

Related texts for the word dividing in Daniel 7: 25.

The core text is Daniel 7: 25 and it refers to the anti – God rebellion of the eleventh horn of the fourth beast:

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/H5732 and times/H5732 and the dividing of time/H5732 (Daniel 7: 25).

Pĕlag (H6387) is the word used in the text for “and the dividing.”  When we make inferences from the usage of one of the root words, we see  a direct reference to the division of the earth,  division of watercourses and the division of tongues:

And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided…H6385 – Genesis 10: 25 & 1  Chronicles 1: 19.

Who hath divided H6385 a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder (Job 38 :25).

Destroy, O Lord, and divide H6385 their tongues H3956: for I have seen violence and strife in the city – Psalm 55: 9.

Historical references to the division of the languages of the earth

According to scriptures, the earth was divided in the days of Peleg, hence his name. This referred to the division of languages after the flood. Scriptures teach that all humans spoke one language after the flood. The human race occupied limited areas on the planet and tried to conglomerate and rebel against Almighty God.

The key related events are found in Genesis 10 & 11:

  • the rise of Nimrod, son of Cush (H3568), ancestor of the Ethiopians and firstborn son of Ham (H 3568).
  • Nimrod was a famous, mighty hunter in the earth – Genesis 10: 8, 9 & 1 Chronicles 1: 10.
  • Nimrod founded of the Kingdom of Babel H894 aka Babylon, which is modern-day Iraq, some parts of northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey, and southwestern Iran.
  • Led by Nimrod, the population began to build a city and a tower in Babel in order to worship their god and to maintain supremacy. Tower symbolized a place of defense.
  • Psalm 55: 9 infers that violence and strife accompanied the founding of the City and Tower of Babel.
  • Babel represents a geographic location of  armed conflict, violence, strife, confusion and rebellion against God.

However, God divided the languages (synonym for tongues/H3956: in scriptures), and scattered the people over the face of the earth:

And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded

And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do

And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do

Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech

So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city

Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth – Genesis 11: 5 – 9.

Other usages of tongues in scripture reveal the depth of the rebellion surrounding the construction of City Babel and Tower Babel

As I reviewed scriptures in which the word tongues was used, I saw the following truths which reveal the depth of the rebellion surrounding the construction of City Babel and Tower Babel. I hasten to add that this will be the scenario in the earth when the Father brings the rule of the fourth beast to an end.

When the cross references are made, we see that one reason for which God ironically divided the languages related to the use of the peoples’ tongues to.

  • move their tongues against each other  to bring about strife  – Joshua 10: 21.
  • flay each – the scourge of tongues – Job 5: 21.
  • hide wickedness and speke deceit  – Job 20: 12; Job 27: 4;
  • speak mischief and vanity – Psalm 10: 7.
  • backbite against each other – Psalm 15: 3.
  • speak against God or set their mouth against the heavens (characteristic behavior of the 11th horn) – Psalm 73: 9.
  • speak lies, a word that is repeated many times in this cross reference.

The dividing of watercourses

The dividing of the watercourses (trench of water, conduit and little rivers) is another text in which the word dividing in Daniel 7: 25 is cross referenced:

Who hath divided H6385 a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder (Job 38 :25).

A watercourse was divided when King Hezekiah diverted the waters of the River  Gihon from East to West Jerusalem via an underground tunnel called Siloam Tunnel. These waters empty into the Pool of Siloam where Jesus healed a blind man.

We now have the dividing of time, the dividing of tongues and the dividing of the watercourse. 

Prophetically speaking, the fourth beast would rule UNTIL there is an uprising in which God ushers in a new era in which the tongues of its dominant eleventh kingdom are divided.

God will cause the people of the fourth beast to begin to speak the language of His Kingdom as the Water of Life is divided and flows to them from the nations that are drinking of  Christ. The result is healing of their blindness, removal of violence, strife, rebellion and worship of the false god.



Pool of Siloam


We read about the judgment of the four kingdoms of Daniel 7 in the post,  The Ancient Of Days Judges The 4th Beast And Gives The Kingdom To Christ And His Church.”

However, there is an unexplained phrase related to the dominion of the eleventh horn that arose out of the fourth kingdom. The scripture says that this eleventh horn would be given power to change times and laws for  ” a time/H5732 and times/H5732 and the dividing of time/H5732.”

What is the meaning of this prophecy?

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/H5732 and times/H5732 and the dividing of time/H5732 (Daniel 7: 25).



`Iddan (H5732)  is the word used for time in  Daniel 7: 25, and it is used in the scriptures to mean:

a. an instant in time

at what time H5732 ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up – Daniel 3: 5.

b. a period of time

The phrase till “seven times H5732 pass over…”  him were written in reference to the duration of time that King Nebuchadnezzar would be driven from among men and live like an animal (Daniel 4: 16, 23, 25 & 32).

I saw striking things about these verses:

1. The phrase   till seven times H5732 pass over him/thee was repeated four times for emphasis, indicating that we need to pay attention.

2. The number seven represents 7 days of creation. King Nebuchadnezzar was judged for seven  times because he claimed to be the  builder of the Kingdom of Babylon, and because he failed to give glory to God who had given him the power to rule.

3. I also saw a number pattern between the verses in which the phrase seven times H5732 pass over occurs. They are 7 – 2 – 7, confirming the duration of the King’s judgment.

Let his heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let seven times H5732 pass over him – Daniel 4: 16.

... let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times H5732 pass over him – Daniel 4: 23.

That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times H5732 shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will – Daniel 4: 25.

And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen,  and seven times H5732 shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will – Daniel 4: 32.

As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time H5732 - Daniel 7: 12.

The question we need to ask is, “what is the duration of seven times in the judgment of Nebuchadnezzar?”   The answer may or may not help us to answer the meaning of a time in Daniel 7: 25.


Time (`iddan /H5732) comes from a root word which says that “… all our righteousnesses are as filthy H5708 rags” (Isaiah 64: 6).  According to the Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon in blueletterbible.org, the text compares human righteousness to the to the monthly menstruation of a woman, which was considered to be unclean under Moses’ law.  During the childbearing period, women menstruate once per month by divine appointment.

Here are the possible interpretations:

  1. Menstruation takes place for a period of time – the childbearing years only, then there is a cessation or the menopause. On average, this lasts about 39 years (12 – 51).

** Time in the text could have a duration in which events occur, then there is a cessation after which this time will not occur in the earth again. This could possibly refer to an ERA.

In a period of 39 years, time would be 10 years, times would be 20 years and half a time would be 5  years.

2. Adolescence marks the time of onset of menstruation. It is a period of discovery and change, a transition to adulthood, independence from parents and sometimes rebellion against authority.

**  The corollary could be that time would begin at a period of discovery, change and transition in the earth. For example, in the 1960s, America went through transition and change.  It was a period of the sexual revolution, the hippie movement, drug use, abolition of prayer in schools, Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement.

Note that the 60s is symbolized by the number 6. It is the day of the birth and period of the rebellion of Adam. I believe that Adam rebelled around age 60, hence the reason why the earth reeled in the 1960s.

3. I will not examine the other interactions between the pituitary gland, ovaries and uterus in the menstrual cycle.


When I reexamined  the text of Daniel 7: 25, I saw that the eleventh horn would change the times and laws UNTIL a time/H5732 and times/H5732 and the dividing of time.

I almost missed the word UNTIL.  That fourth world power would rule UNTIL an era or a time of rebellion and change comes that would topple its dominion in the earth.

Prophet Daniel  saw that the fourth beast would rule UNTIL  a new era in which the nations would rebel against the political rulers. We have seen this begin to happen.



Pĕlag (H6387) is the word used in the text for “and the dividing.” One of the root words from which pĕlag/H6387  refers to the dividing of the tongues at the Tower of Babel where God judged the earth’s population by introducing many languages:

And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided…H6385 – Genesis 10: 25 & 1  Chronicles 1: 19.

Destroy, O Lord, and divide H6385 their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city – Psalm 55: 9.

This is a mystery. If the dividing of tongues refers to God giving many languages as a judgment for rebellion, what does the dividing of times mean?

The key revelation about the 4th beast of Daniel 7

I identified the 4th beast or World Empire of Daniel 7 in the post titled “The 4th Beast Or World Power, Its 11th Horn And The Changing Of Times And Seasons.”  The key revelation of this post is that the 4th beast, while the most terrible of the four, will be judged and entirely destroyed by God.

The vision reveals God sitting in judgment in the Court of Heaven

Prophet Daniel’s vision gave the startling revelation of the judgment of the 4th World Empire by the Heavenly and Eternal God. At the beginning of this episode, the Prophet was shown into the heavens in which he saw two members of the God Family – the Son of Man who is Christ, and the Ancient of Days, the key member of the God Family who Christ referred to as Father during His earthly ministry.

While earthly thrones and kingdoms ruled and terrorized the saints and people of earth, the Ancient of  Days set up thrones of judgment in His ETERNAL in heaven. The end of this and every other judgment preceding it was the casting down of the kingdoms of earth. This calls to mind the words,

“the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever” (Revelation 11: 15).

Prophet  Daniel said that the Ancient of Days had hair like pure wool and wore a garment that was white as snow. Apostle John saw Jesus the replica of the Father in  Revelation 1: 13 – 15, with this revelation teaching us that God is ONE.

When read carefully, the text of Daniel 7 specifically reveals that God came forth to  judge and totally annihilate the 4th Empire in the vision.

This Empire had so aggravated God that it was not permitted to remain even though the other three Empires had been also judged and “had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time” (Daniel 7: 12). Apostle John confirmed this vision in Revelation 13: 2, because the World Empire of the new era was like a leopard, with feet like a bear, and mouth like a lion.

Prophet Daniel saw that God sat in judgment with “thousands upon thousands” and “ten thousand times ten thousand” saints in attendance.  The books of records in heaven were opened because God had kept record of the activities and works of this 4th World Empire, A beautiful parallel is also found in Revelation 20: 11 – 12:

“While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

“As I looked,“thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.

10 A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him.
Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.

11 “Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire.

12 (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.)

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works (Revelation 20: 11 – 12).

The vision reveals that ALL power belongs to God and His Christ

Prophet Daniel saw in the vision that All power and authority were given to the Son of Man, who is Christ. He came with the clouds of heaven. In the root, the Hebrew word for clouds is a poetic reference to Christ being enshrouded in clouds to hide His brightness and glory, which humans cannot tolerate. The references show that the Lord would appear to His people in the cloud and speak from inside, with the cloud being evidence of His Presence.

Jesus the Father was prophetically referred to as the Son of Man covered in the clouds because the vision shows Him after His Ministry in the Earth. While in the earth, His heavenly brightness and glory were hid by the clouds or His body of flesh. In the vision, we also see all things being put under His feet and His promotion to Head of His Church.

13 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man,[a] coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.

14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9: 6).

Christ gives the authority and power into the hands of His church

As Daniel continued in the vision, he saw that the Kingdoms of earth, including the 4th, would rage against the saints and would be permitted for a time to prevail. However, the Ancient of Days pronounced that the Saints had the right to rule in the earth forever and would be given full rule in the fullness of time. One day the earth will no longer be ruled by ungodly men and women and the laws will be those of the Kingdom of God, as Apostle John saw:

The Interpretation of the Dream

15 “I, Daniel, was troubled in spirit, and the visions that passed through my mind disturbed me.

16 I approached one of those standing there and asked him the meaning of all this.

“So he told me and gave me the interpretation of these things: 17 ‘The four great beasts are four kings that will rise from the earth.

18 But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever—yes, for ever and ever.’

19 “Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws—the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left.

20 I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell—the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

21 As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them,

22 until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.

23 “He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.

24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings.

25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.[b]

26 “‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever.

27 Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.’
