Joshua and the Fall of Jericho

//Joshua and the Fall of Jericho

Monday, August 8

Jehovah your God is with you wherever you go.Josh. 1:9.

Jehovah God really was with Joshua wherever he went. For instance, consider what happened as the Israelites were encamped near the Canaanite city of Jericho. In 1473 B.C.E., Joshua sent two men to spy out Jericho, and there they met the prostitute Rahab. She hid them on the roof of her house, concealing them from potential captors sent out by Jericho’s king. Rahab told the Israelite spies: “I do know that Jehovah will give you the land . . . , for we heard how Jehovah dried up the waters of the Red Sea before you . . . and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites.” She added: “Jehovah your God is God in the heavens above and on the earth beneath.” Because Rahab aligned herself with Jehovah’s organization of that time, God saw to it that she and her household were spared when the Israelites conquered Jericho. Rahab exercised faith, had reverence for Jehovah, and showed respect for his people.

COMMENTARY

After wandering in the vast wilderness for 40 years, until the entire generation of the faithless had died off, Jehovah’s angel led the Israelite camp to the banks of the Jordan River. On the other side lay the Promised Land. It was at that point that Joshua was commissioned by God to lead the people into the country that Abraham had traveled through approximately 500 years before. But before the people would inherit a land described as flowing with milk and honey, they would have to fight.

The first city they encountered was Jericho. Every kid who has ever gone to Sunday school knows the story. The Israelite warriors were instructed to march around the city following a solemn procession led by seven priests with seven rams horns, followed by the priests carrying the golden ark of the covenant. On the seventh day they were to march around the city seven times and then the priests were to blow their rams horns and the warriors were to shout a mighty war cry. At that the walls of Jericho came tumbling down —all except for the portion of the wall where the house of Rahab was, the prostitute who had faith in Jehovah.

But this is not merely a bedtime Bible story. It is a portent – a pattern of things to come, of deeply hidden sacred secrets to be revealed during the Revelation of Christ.

The name Joshua is the shortened form of the name Jehoshua, which is the Hebrew name we pronounce in English as Jesus. Does that mean Joshua typifies Jesus? Yes and no. Joshua, as you likely know, along with Caleb, were the two faithful spies who had gone into the land of Canaan with the 10 others. It was because of his faithfulness that he was appointed to lead Jehovah’s people after Moses died. So, in that respect Joshua symbolizes the faithful and discreet slave whom Christ said would be appointed over all of his master’s belongings.

The appointment of the faithful slaves will take place when the master comes to inspect his household at a time his slaves think not to be it. Conversely, the coming of the master results in the condemnation of the unfaithful slave.

The 40 year trek of the unfaithful Israelites disallowed them from entering the Promised Land. In that respect this typifies the removal of all persons doing lawlessness by Jehovah’s powerful angels as a precursor to the establishment of the new heavens and the the new earth.

Christ’s coming to judge his slaves then results in his coming alongside the faithful, which is what the Greek word “parousia” means.

Now, here is where it gets interesting. Prior to the Israelite army marching around Jericho Joshua had a close encounter with a supernatural being. Here is what the account says: When Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua walked up to him and asked: “Are you on our side or on the side of our adversaries?” To this he said: “No, but I have come as prince of Jehovah’s army.” With that Joshua fell with his face to the ground and prostrated himself and said to him: “What does my lord have to say to his servant?” The prince of Jehovah’s army replied to Joshua: “Remove your sandals from your feet, because the place where you are standing is holy.” At once Joshua did so. Joshua 5

According to the 12 chapter of Daniel the great prince who stands in behalf of God’s people is Michael. And as we know the designation of God’s people passed from the Israelites to the Christians, so that the prophecy really applies to Jesus standing up for God’s people during the tribulation.

Interestingly, the prince of Jehovah’s army appeared to Joshua immediately after all of the Hebrews had been circumcised, which was immediately followed by the Passover on Nisan 14, when the daily-appearing manna from heaven stopped. According to Christ he himself is the true manna, the bread from heaven that gives life. Paul said that Christ is our passover. So, the cessation of the manna typifies that Christ’s sacrifice will be completed as regards those who are in the new covenant —those who have finally had the hearts circumcised by God. And this occurs before the end of this world, at the coming of Christ.

Paul confirmed that when he wrote to the Corinthians regarding the end of the observance of the evening meal involving the bread representing Christ’s flesh, and the cup, saying: “For whenever you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he comes.

But the significance of Joshua’s experience with the prince of the army is that he portrayed the holy ones who will see Christ during his glorious presence, when he manifests himself to them. It is at that point the holy ones become Christ – or rather the brothers of Christ, through whom Christ lives vicariously. The fact that the Israelites were required to show deep respect for Joshua and obey him as if he were God foreshadows the judging of the sheep and the goats based upon their support of Christ’s brothers during the conclusion. 

Having seen the prince of the army Joshua typifies the chosen ones who will see Christ and who will then be given the assignment of witnessing again —announcing Jehovah’s judgments upon the doomed world. As Jehovah was with Joshua, Christ will be with his brothers everywhere they go. 

Of note, the work of the two witnesses leads to the blowing of the seventh trumpet and the great earthquake that flattens a tenth of the city and ultimately brings to ruin those ruining the earth.

The final witness is what was enacted upon the plains of Jericho, when the holy assembly marched around the city seven times and the walls came crashing down.

    That is a very strengthening article and has brought a good understanding to the significance of Jericho that I never knew before. Also, I never knew Jehovah had an organisation back then according to the watchtower! I wonder who the governing body members were!

    • 1914for100Alex

      That’s one of my favorite parts about this site. Robert puts things into a perspective you never thought of before. I used to look at the OT as part prophecy, part history. The history stuff I figured was obviously to fill us in on how we got to where we’re at, and also for moral guidance. I never realized the parallels to the conclusion. It’s funny how obvious it seems once you read Robert’s articles.

      • Bklyn Kevin

        If one peers long enough at the Jericho account they will soon realize how Daniel and John of patmos got their inspiration from Jehovah’s holy spirit concerning the 42 months as well as the 3 1/2 years.

        Romans 15:
        4 For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.

        2 Timothy 3:16
        All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness,
        17 so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.

        John 14:
        26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you.

        2 Peter
        21 For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were moved by holy spirit.

        1 Corinthians 10:
        11 Now these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for a warning to us upon whom the ends of the systems of things have come.

        • 1914for100Alex

          So that’s why it makes so much sense! That’s what I get for taking a 25 plus year break from all of this lol. 1 Corinthians 10:11 sums it up nicely.

        • Cathii D’Anthonii

          Kevin, I don’t see the reference to 3 1/2 years.

    Can someone point me to the discussion around the two witnesses please and their meaning. I cant locate it. Thanks.

    Where does Robert King’s ability to retain such bountiful knowledge come from? I can barely remember my own name at times little lone unlimited scriptural fact and figures as Robert does, Robert’s kin sharp intellect is absolutely amazing to me.

    • Bklyn Kevin

      1 John 2:27
      And as for you [Robert King], the anointing that you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to be teaching you; but the anointing from him is teaching you about all things and is true and is no lie. Just as it has taught you, remain in union with him.

      John 14:26
      But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you.

      John 15:26
      When the helper comes that I will send you from the Father, the spirit of the truth, which comes from the Father, that one will bear witness about me;

      John 16:13
      However, when that one comes, the spirit of the truth, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak of his own initiative, but what he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things to come.

      • Song of Hannah

        Bro Kevin, I am certain sharing those scriptures are not only informative to NWOB9S9014, but I am thinking, they must of great encouragement to Robert too, who has faithfully kept to his post, with very little encouragement, over several years. ?

        • Bklyn Kevin

          Robert is truly like the steward described in Matthew 13:52.B.
          every public instructor, when taught respecting the kingdom of the heavens, is
          like a man, a householder, who brings out of his treasure store things new and
          old.”
          Let a man so appraise us as being subordinates of Christ and stewards of sacred secrets of God. Besides, in this case, what is looked for in stewards is for a man to be found faithful 1Corinthians 4:1-2.

          And Brother Robert has been doing just that, being a faithful steward and subordinate
          to Christ in respect to feeding the sheep, a public instructor who has been bringing out from his storehouse old and new treasures and making known to the people Jehovah’s dealings.

    • Burt Reynolds

      Yes it’s wonderful that someone can have that much subject matter to mind. But when you consider who made the brain that we have and how flesh is made to think and be concious, the creator of memory, the creator of love and to hate what is bad, hearing, sight, taste…..and what we need right now, insight. It makes the heart beat softly with deep appreciation.

  • Rob

    Hi y’all.
    I remember zoning out at meetings when they would talk about the anointed or how to arrive at 1914, (it’s been 20 years) I was never all that studious but things just didn’t ring true. Here, it all makes sense, harmonious, beautiful really. I’m grateful to have found this site and I feel like I am on the right track again. I am trying to get right with Jehovah and shake off the entanglements that I have brought upon myself, it’s not easy and I know there is not much time left. It sure is a refreshing and exciting, feeling, (to say the least) to have Jehovah’s word stirring in my heart again and to have a hope.

    I have a question. I need to understand how/when the baton got passed from the Jews to the Christians and an understanding of the different covenants and how they came about. These things along with the succession of world empires, etc. are a bit disjointed for me.

    Although I am learning more and more everyday, it would be great if there were a somewhat succinct, chronological ordering of events, maybe bullet pointed and with hyperlinks. Is that too tall an order? Does anyone know of such a thing? A History of God’s Word for Dummies, so to speak. I think it is mostly “up there” in my brain, I’ve heard all the stories growing up in the truth.

    So glad to be a part of this forum, thank you brother King and all here.

    • ROLEE ALLEN

      I can tell you what helped me get my mind “De-Watchtowered” after a long hiatus from spiritual study of Jehovah’s word the bible…I not only began reading the scriptures intently from Genesis – Revelation…I read Brother Kings book Jehovah Himself has become King , even listen to the audio, still do….I was totally out of focus…things are a whole lot clearer now…I suggest taking one subject and breaking it down…its hard for me to do that because Ive been starving for truth…I can assure you that if you are sincere, Jehovah will help you find what you are looking for…Brother King does a great work explaining Jehovah’s will and judgements…there is no waste of material on this site….good to see you are finding your way, it took me way too long…I hope to encourage you Brother

      • Welcome Rolee,
        Glad to have you here! God is bringing back into his fold the many of his sheep who were scattered and lost on account of the wicked shepherds: “‘I myself shall feed my sheep, and I myself shall make them lie down,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘The lost one I shall search for, and the dispersed one I shall bring back, and the broken one I shall bandage and the ailing one I shall strengthen, but the fat one and the strong one I shall annihilate. I shall feed that one with judgment.'” (Ezek. 34:2-16) Then the congregation will again function as it did in the first century, and we will see God’s holy spirit in action upon his holy people as it was back then.

        • ROLEE ALLEN

          Thank you Brother.. I appreciate all of your comments!

    • Welcome Rob,
      Glad to have you with us.
      You zoned out for a good reason!
      The foundation of the Society itself is based on the lie that Jesus returned in 1914, at which time he is said to have set up his kingdom, and appointed his “faithful and discreet slave” over all his earthly belongings; pointing to the signs we have seen since that date as prove of their claim. (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21) But, according to Jesus’ own words, the signs he gave regarding his presence (parousia) are evidence of, not that he has already arrived, but rather of the fact that he is “near at the doors,” and that “the kingdom of God is near.” (Matt. 24:32,33; Luke 21:29-31) Immediately upon his arrival, Jesus will do away with the man of lawlessness; and judging by the signs Jesus gave, that time is indeed very near at hand.—Matthew 24:48-51; 25:14-30; 2 Thess. 2:8; Rev. 3:3.

      Take Rolex Allen’s advice below. & don’t be a stranger. Look forward to hearing more from you.

      Very glad to have you Rob. I too have felt a renewed soul after joining here.

    • T L C

      My story sounds a lot like yours. I’m glad you are finding your way!!! I agree with @ROLEE917:disqus that Brother King’s book, ‘Jehovah Himself Has Become King, will help you. I purchased the hard back copy because I LOVE to read but it is sooo much information. I personally benefited more from the audios and I listened to them ALL the time. Some chapters I had to listen to numerous times but I would jot down things I had questions about and do research on those things. I would sometimes go to jw.org to search to kinda confirm the belief system I had previously (I have been away for almost 20 years as well and some things are a little foggy) and compare it to what I was learning from Bro King to verify within myself what made most sense. Hands down, when it comes to prophecy, the society has nothing on Brother King’s interpretations of the things to come. Jehovah’s spirit is truly with him…

      A Conclusion of a System. https://e-watchman.com/conclusion-of-a-system/
      Excerpt:
      As the Watchtower points out, God brought the Jewish system to a conclusion, not only with the sacrifice of Christ, but emphatically so when the Roman legions obliterated the center of Jewish worship – Jerusalem. But before the holy city was razed Jehovah brought into existence a new system of worship centered on Christ; hence, the Christian Age began. According to the Insight on the Scriptures Paul wrote his letter to his fellow Hebrews around 61 CE., or only about five years before the disgusting thing appeared in the holy place, signaling the imminent end of the Jewish system.

      Interestingly, Paul referred to “systems of things” – plural. In the first century only one system came to an end – the Jewish system. And it is also worth noting that while the Greek Scriptures speak of the manifestation of Christ in his flesh the word is more commonly used in reference to his glorious manifestation during the parousia. Since there is an ultimate, glorious manifestation of Jesus at the conclusion – that is to say during the harvest – it appears as if the reason Paul referred to the conclusion of the systems (plural) is because at the return of Christ multiple systems will be concluded. Not only the Christian Age, but also the political system that has been in place for this present age – extending back to antiquity – to Rome, Greece, Persia, etc.

      How and why will the Christian system conclude? It will end because it will have accomplished its purpose. Just as the Jewish system fulfilled it’s mission to produce the Messiah, the Christian system will conclude when the complete number of the seed of Christ is fulfilled and a great crowd has been gathered. Simultaneously, the earthly political system will go into convulsions – a great tumult, as the second Psalm foretells.

    • Witness for the Almighty YAH

      The Mosaic Law covenant was kept in force for 3.5 years after the Messiah died for the YAH’s (now incorrectly and unscripturally called the Jews) (Dan 9:27). Then the new covenant, which for the 3.5 years was only open to the YAH’s, was then opened up to believers from the nations, who were called ‘Messianics’, not Christians. (Rev 1:11 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1%3A11+&version=CJB)
      (Acts 11:22-26 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1%3A11+&version=CJB) (Rom 11:25,26) (Gal 6:16) (Rom 2:28,29)

      The 7 world powers throughout history are the 7 nations that acted as the world ruler for a period of time. These 7 super powers were each under the control of one of the 7 powerful satanic ‘princes’ that Satan recruited to join him in opposition to YAH’UAH, our Creator. (Dan 10:13,20) The first world power was Egypt, then Assyria, then Babylon, then Media/Persia, then Greece, then Rome, then the City of London/United States.

      • LW

        I definitely agree with you regarding the demonic principalities being over various geographic locations. The precedent is there when the angel battled the prince of Persia for 21 days.

      • LW

        Do you agree with this?

        Satan has led the occult to believe that antediluvian man was of the Aryan race.

        • Witness for the Almighty YAH

          My research on the subject is that Satan has lied his human leaders throughout history. He tells them that they are the offspring of the ‘gods’, just like the ‘nephilim’, who were the ‘Aryan’ race. The ‘Aryans’ were the ones who were the offspring of the wicked spirits before the flood.

          In most Bibles, the offspring of the wicked spirits are translated phonetically from Hebrew as ‘nephilim’. That Hebrew word should be translated as ‘violent giants’ and include the wicked spirits who changed themselves into physical beings. Their physical offspring is what is known in the occult as the ‘Aryan’ race and are what most Bible readers now know as the ‘nephilim’.

          These wicked spirits that claim to be the ‘gods’ that came to earth before the flood to produce physical offspring. This ‘Aryan race’ that came from the ‘human gods’ were to rule the earth and collect all of its precious metals and minerals.

          This ‘Aryan race’ were given the ‘divine right’ by the ‘gods’ to rule the earth. Ten of the ‘Aryan’ offspring of the ten powerful wicked ‘warrior’ spirits ruled over 10 regions of the continent of ‘Atlantis’ before the flood.

          Apparently, when the wicked spirits changed their spirit bodies into
          physical bodies to produce physical offspring, their own physical skin and the skin of their offspring was white and possibly ‘glowed’. That is what the depictions of the ‘Aryan’ race show them as looking like.

          Then after the ‘gods’ returned to the spirit realm and their ‘Aryan’ offspring were killed in the flood, Satan concocted the lie that the ‘gods’ once again mated with human woman after the flood and that the Luciferians that serve him have the same bloodline as the original ‘Aryan’ race.

          They were born by the ‘gods’ to rule over the ‘monsters’, who were originally called ‘mansters’. These ‘monsters’ are the rest of the human race that they wee falsely taught are the offspring of the ‘gods’ mating with the rhesus monkey.

          It is a satanic twist to what the Bible truthfully states. The wicked
          spirits did change themselves into physical beings to mate with humans and with animals, which is where the ‘dinosaurs’ came from, but they all were all destroyed in the flood.

          The Luciferians, have been taught that they have the same blood type as the ‘Aryans’, claim that they have ‘blue blood’, which comes from the ‘unique’ and ‘special’ bloodline of the ‘gods’. This is the reason for the ‘negative’ blood type. The ‘negative’ supposedly shows that they do NOT have ‘rhesus’ monkey blood in their own blood.

          Those with a ‘positive’ blood type are supposedly the human ‘monsters’ whose blood tests ‘positive’ for ‘rhesus’ monkey blood.

          That is supposedly why the Luciferians that rule the world think that they are ‘gods’ on earth, and only marry and mate within their ‘bloodlines’ in order to keep it ‘pure’. They look at the rest of the human race as ‘dumb animals’ to be used and then disposed.

          Hitler was mislead to believe that the ‘perfect’ race were blue
          eyed, blond haired humans, which just how the ‘Aryans’ are depicted as looking like. He was striving for the ‘perfect’ human race in Germany, which is why he had no problem exterminating those who were not blue eyed, and blonde haired.

          Modern science has disproved that false theory, so now Satan has
          children of adult ‘monsters’ called ‘little monsters’ when
          they act bad and ‘kids’, as in young ‘goats’, who will be destroyed. Satan has twisted Matthew 25 to his servants, but we know the reality is that the wicked, stubborn ‘goats’ who do not help the
          brothers of the Son of God during the ‘last days’ are the ones to be
          destroyed. (Mt 25:31-46)

          This wicked view of human ‘monsters’ is why the Luciferian ‘New World Order’ is called the ‘despicable thing that depopulates’, or the ‘disgusting that that desolates’. They think like Prince Phillip, who stated that ‘he would like to return to earth after he dies as a ‘virus’ to kill off 90% of the world’s population’. The human ‘monsters’ that survive to worship the NWO ‘beast and its image’ are to be used as slaves for the Luciferian human ‘gods’.

          Satan’s entire fabrication of the bloodline of the ‘Aryan’ race, is of course, a satanic lie. There will be 10 ‘regions’ on earth, just like in ‘Atlantis’, which is depicted as 10 ‘horns’ and 10 ‘toes’ in prophesy. In the New World Order, region 1 will be made up of what is now known as US, Canada and Mexico. (Rev 13,17) (Dan 2:43)

          • LW

            Wow, thanks for that detailed explanation. I initially read that statement on a “Christian” site which outlined Satan’s program to duplicate the Second Coming of Christ and it listed as one of those points the goal to remake human society into their version of the “new man”.

            Nonetheless, it is all a big deception.

            • Witness for the Almighty YAH

              “Satan’s program to duplicate the Second Coming of Christ… “.

              This will occur, as outlined in ‘Project Blue Beam’. This program was exposed by a Canadian journalist Serge Monast as a program that Satan, and his minions in the US government, had planned in order to put the New World Order in place, before YAH’s ‘appointed time’. (Dan 11:29-31, 12:11)

              The fake ‘second coming’ will occur 45 days after the start of the Great Tribulation with ‘Jesus’, as the false Son of God, coming to ‘save’ mankind.

              Also, I slightly edited the last paragraph of my last comment. You can read it and my other comments by clicking on my user name.

            • did the demons need project blue beam in pharaoh day? no. i doubt they will depend on it now

            • Witness for the Almighty YAH

              Is English your first language? We all know some people that are hard of hearing, but what about people like you who are is ‘hard of thinking, reading and comprehending’? That’s much worse!

              What I said was ‘This program was… planned in order to put the New World Order in place before YAH’s ‘appointed time’. (Dan 11:29-31, 12:11)

              I believe that the ‘fake ‘second coming’ will actually occur 45 days after the start of the Great Tribulation with ‘Jesus’, as the false ‘Son of God’, coming to ‘save’ mankind.’ (Dan 12:11,12, Matt 24:4,5)

              All hidden truths like this one, and others found on the internet, fulfills Bible prophecy (Dan 12:4) (Mark 4:22) The actual history of ‘Project Blue Beam’ occurred in the 1980’sn and is history that anyone can now look up for themselves. It was part of the US ‘Star Wars’ program that was implemented during the Reagan administration.

              As I stated, it was a ‘plan to get the New World Order put in place’… BEFORE the ‘appointed time’.

              When Satan is kicked out of heaven, he will be able to perform all kinds of satanic miracles to trick people, including the fake ‘2nd coming’ of Jesus Christ, the fake ‘Son of God’. He will not need to use ‘blue beam’ or any other man-made, demon inspired project… he will do it himself! (2 Thess 2:9,10)

            • i do have poor english and comprehending is difficult. my apologies.

              im sure demons are in ties with government because they are the present earthly government.

              the fake second coming already began as project Invisible Presence. i dont know much about Satan being able after being cast down any differently then he is now.

            • Witness for the Almighty YAH

              Hahaha… ‘project Invisible Presence’! Thanks for that one. I’m going to use that if I discuss ‘project blue beam’ with anyone. That’s hilarious!

              As far as the plans of Satan and the Illuminati, they have wanted to set up the New World Order as far back ass Nimrod and the Tower of Babel. In more recent times, they wanted to set up it up using Great Britain and the head of it in the 16th century. https://boingboing.net/2015/02/19/john-dee-was-the-real-life-mer.html?fk_bb

              It is obvious that the Almighty has held them off from doing so, in line with the scriptures at 2 Thessalonians 2:7 and Acts 1:7. ‘At the appointed time’ they will be able to do what Satan has always wanted to do, which is try to get everyone to worship his One World Government ‘Beast and its image’, so that they will go into the ‘lake of fire’, just as he will. He’s going down, and he wants to take as many of God’s human creation, as possible, with him.

              One of the ways to get everyone to worship his ‘Beast’ is to create a fake 2nd coming’ of Jesus Christ, the fake ‘Son of God’. As prophesied, many will be mislead. (Mt 24:4,5) I believe he will cause many different apparitions of the fake ‘Son of God’ to appear in many countries, all speaking in the native language. This will fool everyone into worshiping the NWO, by ‘Jesus’ calling it ‘God’s Kingdom’ and claiming it has finally ‘come’ to earth to ‘save’ mankind.

              ‘Project Blue Beam’ had the fake 2nd coming’ of Jesus Christ as one of it’s features. A fake ‘rapture’ was another one. So the ‘Blue Beam’ project clearly indicates that Satan’s plans were to get the New World Order started… before the ‘appointed time’.

              Ever since the flood, Satan has had work thru humans and the governments that he controls, to get anything done in the physical realm here on earth. He cannot do things directly anymore, as he and the wicked spirits are in ‘chains’ in ‘tartarus’. (2 Peter 2:4, Jude 1:6)

              The satanic plan was obviously thwarted by the Almighty until the ‘appointed time’, as has other military activity that could have ‘taken peace from the earth’ before YAH’s appointed time. (Rev 6:4) (listen to this interview with an ex-illuminati from the 19.5 minute until shortly after the 20th minute) http://www.deagle-network.com/the-nutrimedical-report-show-hour-one-thursday-august-4th-2016/)

              2 Thessalonians 2:5-12 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

              I expect you remember now how I talked about this when I was with you.

              You will probably also remember how I used to talk about a “restraining power” which would operate until the time should come for the emergence of this man.

              Evil is already insidiously at work but its activities are restricted until what I have called the “restraining power” (of God) is removed. When that happens the lawless man will be plainly seen—though the truth of the Lord Jesus spells his doom, and the radiance of the coming of the Lord Jesus will be his utter destruction.

              The lawless man is produced by the spirit of evil and armed with all the force, wonders and signs that falsehood can devise. To those involved in this dying world he will come with evil’s undiluted power to deceive, for they have refused to love the truth which could have saved them.

              God sends upon them, therefore, the full force of evil’s delusion, so that they put their faith in an utter fraud and meet the inevitable judgment of all who have refused to believe the truth and who have made evil their play-fellow.

              The Plan for the NWO has always been there..I’ve read it was supposed to have been implemented from the year 2000, but it wasn’t the appointed time. Even though we don’t know the day and hour, based on the revelations published on this site and otherwise, coupled with an awakening of sorts experienced by most, can’t we say that this is the time…and that the appointed time is not another distant point in the future (as in 50-60 years from now)?

              Otherwise what is the point of having learned all of what we have come to know, if world shaking events do not occur in our lifetime?

            • Witness for the Almighty YAH

              If you read my previous comments, I have been pointing to the ‘night’ of October 24th, 2016 in the United States when the ‘death stroke’ will occur, or on October 25th, depending on what time zone a person is in when the US is ‘slaughtered to death’.

              1. There is an unknown period of time after Eve was created in order to allow the Devil’s ‘test’. The Almighty was well aware of Satan’s desire ‘to be like God’ in having his own creation. (see my other comments)

              2. So, the Creator left a ‘gap’ between Eve’s creation and the end of the 6th day, and the start of His 7th creative ‘day’, which is God’s ‘day of rest’.

              3. Adam was created during the 6th ‘creative day’, now believed to be 6,000 years before 1975. He was alone in the ‘garden of Eden’ for an unknown number of years, but I believe he was alone for 30 years. That means Eve was created 6,000 years before 2005. (1975 + 30yrs = 2005)

              4. I believe Adam was alone for 30 years because a man did not become a ‘man’ in the Mosiac Law until he was 30 years old.

              5. Most importantly, the Son of God did not become the ‘Messiah’ until he was 30 years old. Also, Joseph, originally Yoseph, was not appointed as ‘chief’ over all of Pharoah’s belongings in Egypt until he was ’30 years old’.

              6. Also, ‘Yahuchannon the Immerser’ did not start his ministry until he was 30 years old.

              7. As a side note, he is not ‘John the Baptizer’. The Vatican wickedly changed his name and title to ‘John the Baptizer’. They did this in order to hide the Creator’s true name, as the ‘Yahu’ portion of God’s Name is within Yahchannon’s name. A portion of God’s true Name is within a total of 137 names in the Bible, as well as the Holy City of ‘Yahrushalom’. (read my comments on the Creator’s true Name)

              8. The real reason that the Vatican’s satanic bible ‘scholars’ changed Yahuchannon’s title to ‘baptizer’ is because it is accordance with the satanic ritual of pouring oil on the forehead of an ‘initiate’ into a satanic cult, such as the Greek satanic cult of ‘Christos’. A person is that pours oil onto the forehead of an ‘initiate’ is a ‘baptizer’. The term ‘baptizer’ was not inserted into the scriptures until the 14th century.

              9. We do not know exactly how long the time was between Eve’s creation and the end of the 6th day, but if the ‘1335 days’ ends on the summer solstice, June 20th, 2020, then 15 years was the length of time after Eve was created before the 7th day began.

              10. So if the ‘Great Tribulation begins this year, then counting ‘1335 days’ backwards from the summer solstice on June 20th, 2020, we arrive at the evening of October 24th, 2016. That will be the day will ‘approach as a ‘thief in the night’ and the ‘Tribulation’ will begin.

        I watched the above video, it was really so much garbage! Try reading ‘Jehovah has become king.’ Or any of the scores of articles on this site regarding end time events. You’ll be much better served!

      • Rev 2:24 you go beyond what is written

        • Witness for the Almighty YAH

          If I am trying to discuss scriptures, how is that ‘going beyond the things written’ in the scriptures? If you are still around, are you going to tell the true anointed ‘who have insight’ that they are ‘going beyond the things written’ when they ‘give understanding to the many’? (Dan 11:33)

          You remind me of the final part of the scripture at Dan 12:10 ‘None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand’.

          You also falsely and wickedly imply that I have ‘learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets’ (from Rev 2:24) because I shared some information that is easily found on the internet?

          How is watching or listening to an interview that is NOT discussing how to contact wicked spirits or how to perform satanic rituals like the witchy Witchtower does, mean that I am ‘learning the so-called deep secrets of Satan’?

          Long ago, the scriptures pointed out the ‘princes of darkness’. I am discussing those verses in the Bible, and yet you claim I am ‘going beyond the things written’ in the Bible and ‘learning the so-called deep secrets of Satan’? (Dan 10:13,20) The only thing I am going beyond is what the witchy Witchtower falsely teaches!

          The scripture below truly applies to you:

          2 Peter 3:16 New Living Translation

          16 speaking of these things in all of his letters. Some of his comments are hard to understand, and those who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters to mean something quite different, just as they do with other parts of Scripture. And this will result in their destruction.

          You are ‘from your father the devil, a liar’. The only question about your slandering me is will this ‘result in … (your) destruction’?

          • Beverly kenyon

            Ohhh, You really are away with the fairies! Do not call DA wicked, a liar, his father is the Devil and how he’s gonna be destroyed! He merely disagreed with you on some of your points then it was up to you engage with him to get your point across politely…next minute your preaching fire and brimstone and getting personal. Once you start doing that you’ve lost the argument mate! DA absolutely love the Father in heaven and his Son, no one on this this can say otherwise…no, not even you..and I wouldn’t mind every time I see your name pop up on this site I look forward to see what you have to say because you’re knowledgeable and some of what you write is actually interesting…. it gets the person reading it, thinking. So you’re letting yourself down by hurling insults and worst of all using scripture to do it for you when you’re way off the mark! I like your fire and zeal for Jehovah but do not knock down someone who believe just like you do. You can’t judge someone…you’re a human..dust, no better than DA. Don’t be unkind when we’re all struggling and trying to stay close to Jehovah. There’s no need!

            • Witness for the Almighty YAH

              Excuse me?

              1. First of all, do you believe in the obeying the Almighty’s command at 1 Timothy 2:12?

              2. Second, I stated that he was ‘ignorant’ and a ‘tool’ for his ‘father the devil, who is a slanderous liar’. Satan can, and does use the ignorant as a tool, just as we read about at Mt 16:23.

              3. I did NOT state that he WAS wicked, but that he ‘reminds’ me of the final part of the scripture at Dan 12:10 ‘None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand’.

              4. I also did not state that he absolutely ‘would be destroyed’, but I stated that he was acting wickedly by his false, slanderous claims and that the ‘question is’ will he continue to ‘twist the scriptures to his own destruction’. It is a question for him to consider before he makes any more wicked, false accusations.

              5. He can be ‘remorseful’ and ‘reform’ his behavior before his ‘heart gets hardened’ and it is too late. (Ephesians 4:18, Prov 28:14) It is NOT about being ‘repentant’, which is Catholic term referring to the ‘sacrament of penance’ that Catholic Bible ‘scholars’ wickedly changed in place of ‘reformed’. (compare 2 Peter 3:9 on page 494 at http://www.heraldmag.org/olb/bsl/Library/BIBLES/Diagltt/Diaglott.pdf)

              6. ‘Repentance’ means receiving forgiveness of sins from a Catholic priest, which used to mean paying ‘indulgences’ in order for sins to be ‘forgiven’. Paying money to the Catholic church or confessing sins to a priest and doing ‘penance’ cannot forgive anyone of their sins.

              7. Third, did you comprehend that he did not ‘merely disagree’ or even comment on any particular point that I wrote about, but instead, he falsely and wickedly implied/suggested/claimed that I am ‘learning the deep things of Satan’.

              8. That’s a lying false accusation (Prov 6:19), a wicked twisting of the scriptures, and a slanderous lie! He got very ‘personal’ with me, which you seem to overlook!

              9. I posted a link to ‘an interview that is NOT discussing how to contact wicked spirits or how to perform satanic rituals, like the leaders of the witchy Witchtower perform in secret’, yet he suggested that I am ‘learning the so-called deep secrets of Satan’! Did you understand what he was implying when he quoted Rev 2:24?

              10. He also falsely stated, as he has before, that I am ‘going beyond the things written’ in the scriptures’, even though I’m discussing the scriptures! The term ‘going beyond the things written’ is referring to
              going beyond what the scriptures allow. The scriptures do not allow anyone to put themselves or any human on a pedestal by becoming a ‘follower of men’, which is what Paul was referring to. (1 Cor 4:6)

              11. ‘Going beyond the things written’ does not mean that we are to only discuss what an individual believes to be scripturally true. The person may ‘know nothing, and understand even less’ when it comes to the scriptures, so who are they to decide what is ‘allowed’ to be discussed? What I am trying to do is share my research and understanding on many scriptural subjects. Did you understand what he meant when he made the false accusation that I am ‘going beyond the things written’?

              12. Another thing is, that we ARE to judge people, but it is with ‘righteous judgement’. (John 7:24, Mt 12:27, Luke 11:19, 1 Cor 5:12,13, 6:4, 15:33)

              13. What we are not allowed to do is ‘condemn’ people or even state that they are ‘righteous’. Only the Father and the Son of God can do that. (1 Cor 4:3,4) (Rev 22:12)

              14. The satanic ‘man of sin/man of lawlessness’ has twisted the scriptures and replaced ‘condemn’ with ‘judge’ in in the Bible in order to ‘water down the scriptures’. The result is that people can commit wickedness that is condemned in the Bible and then falsely state that ‘no one is allowed to judge them’ or falsely claim that ‘we are not to judge’.

              15. The two words are very similar in Greek, krinó meaning to ‘judge’, and katakrinó meaning to ‘condemn’. So it was easy for satanic Bible ‘scholars’, under the influence of Satan, to switch ‘condemn’ to ‘judge’ in the scriptures, which is exactly what they did.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Yes, I do believe in obeying the Almighty’s commandment but I was not teaching or exercising authority over a man (I take it that man is you), I was merely standing up for my friend and that’s what I do for my friends. What century are you from and have you just landed on the Mayflower in a very tall hat and pantaloons? I have read your very informative post, very impressive but spin it every which way you want you did call DA wicked and have continued to use that word in relation to him and no he is not from Satan. I appreciate you sharing your research and understanding, I really do as I love learning from others, a thing I get to do on this site but DA gave you his opinion, as hard hitting as it was you should’ve just took it on the chin and ask why did he think that. But instead you started ranting in your so called righteous indignation and trying to overwhelm me into submission with your knowledge. I don’t want to offend you or hurt your feelings but I’m not backing down from what I wrote in my original post to you regarding the matter. Once again, I have respect for your love for Jehovah and his word and your knowledge but I won’t sit in silence when I see a person who I care about and think of as a friend being put down.

            • Witness for the Almighty YAH

              You were attempting to correct a brother… that is disobeying the Almighty! Standing up for a person that is in the wrong is NOT a righteous act! Quit trying to ‘prove yourself right’, when you are NOT!

              When you pray, why don’t you tell YAH’UAH, the Almighty, that His ‘centuries old’ command is from the ‘Mayflower’?

              You ignorantly, and blasphemously, call the Almighty ‘Jehovah’, which is just another name for the Devil, just like ‘Beelzebub’, ‘Belial’, and ‘Lucifer’. Read my comments about the true Name of the Sovereign by clicking on my user name and scrolling down.

              Also, there was no ‘spin’ on DA’s comment. I have never before referred to him as ‘wicked’, so that means you are a liar, just like the original Jezebel (actually Izabel because there is, and never was, a ‘j’ in the Hebrew or even Greek, language. The ‘j’ was added as the 26th letter to the English language in 1630).

              My comment correctly stated “You remind me of the final part of the scripture at Dan 12:10 ‘None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand’.”

              I think that scripture applies to you as well!

            • Beverly kenyon

              I’m not being funny but you’re making me laugh with some of the thing you’re saying….I might’ve been a Jezebel or Izabel in the late eighties early nineties but I’m a reformed character now! Don’t care what it is I will stand up for my friend! I said YOU had stepped off the Mayflower because you’re talking like you’re from another century. Call me what you like…sticks and stones..blah de blah! Yes, I will check out the name as you’ve kindly mentioned. Now I’m wicked as well! Thanks a lot!

    • Joe Dman

      Believe it or not, you’re not the only one who has felt a little overwhelmed and wanted an easy to read road map. ROLEE’s comment is spot on, just dive in and it will eventually come together along with vigilant prayer and Bible reading. I did the same thing: read the book, watched all the podcasts and read all the articles. But those articles are stacking up, it would be a tall order to start from the beginning, but it’s like digging for hidden treasures and this site is the mother load. Page one and two is the archive of past articles. The podcasts are similar to the Drama’s at the conventions. It’s the thing we most look forward to. We’re supposed to get at least one a month. My favorite article is imaging paradise: https://e-watchman.com/?s=imagining+paradise&lang=en It’s a lure if you will, and much more inviting than the bland renditions of paradise the Watchtower depicts.

    • im not sure what youre asking but…

      one thing that throws people off into inaccurate thinking is the word Jew. Jew was just a slang term to discribe Jehovah fearing people from Judah. the term caught-on and so all people known by their worship to Jehovah became known as Jews from or located in Judah or not. later Jesus came into to picture as a human on earth, as Christ, as an example on how to walk as a Jew. so then those Jews, or people of Jehovah God, that accepted Jehovah’s son became followers of Christ – Christain.

      real Jews are Christain.
      worded differently, true people of the true God Jehovah are followers of his only begotten son Jesus.

      Jews that rejected Gods son Jesus up to this day are still called Jews but they really are not people of Jehovah.

      • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

  • Burt Reynolds

    A question here. Joshua found this warrior with drawn sword barring his way near Jericho. On asking what side he was on, the Angel told him who he was and immediately, Joshua abased himself and took off his sandals as he was told. Is anyone here in tune with the contextual history of the people at that time, because to me at least, this has a bearing on the coming events. Considering that Satan is always turning himself into an angel of light ( like the ‘new light’ we see as an excuse from the watchtower on a daily basis!) I wonder how we will react given the appearance of Christ and the Angels. It seems that in those days, the populous was very much more familiar with the knowledge of Jehovah than we are, even here. If I was stopped on a road by someone proclaiming to be an angel, I would be querying his credentials, given that it might even be a demon in sheeps clothing so to speak. The sights coming our way will be miraculous, and our society is about as far away from Jehovah as it is possible to be without our actually leaving the planet. Back in the days of Joshua, Jehovah was so much more in the minds of people; an entity. Today, to most of the world, he is a myth and his coming will be beyond our comprehension. How, in what way, did they understand Jehovah those thousands of years ago so that we might learn from their experience?

    • 1914for100Alex

      I’ve always envisioned the people of those days as far more accepting of miracles and seeing things that would make most of us freak out. And it’s for the exact same reason you stated. People were much closer to Jehovah at that time. The other side of the coin is that Satan and his demons appeared to be more active also. They made themselves into false gods and used their powers more frequently it seems.

      I believe that Satan toning it down a bit is all part of his plan. By making people question his existence, they in turn question God’s. I also believe making people believe in ghosts is a trick to make people question the Bible. If someone sees or hears from a dead person they know, or even don’t know, they’re whole belief system is going to be challenged. Why? Because people “know” what they see and experience. They can’t see God, but they sure saw that ghost, so they must be real. And the Bible says nothing about us coming back as ghosts to haunt people.

      As you stated, we’re so far from Jehovah as a society, people would rather believe in aliens than the God of the Bible. Years ago I had a paranormal experience at a known haunted establishment. I always laughed it off as a marketing ploy, but one day I found out it was real. It wasn’t anything scary like out of Poltergeist. It was what people that believe in ghosts would describe as a “playful spirit”. You know, the soft and cuddly demons as opposed to the ones like in The Exorcist lol. The thing is, when it happened I knew exactly what it was. I didn’t get scared. At all. It was more of a “you’re kidding me” attitude. I realize this is nothing compared to having a spirit standing in front of me with a sword, but my point is, if you believe it’s less likely to give you a heart attack 🙂 Those of us here will know exactly what’s going on, and be far better prepared to deal with the supernatural. I’m like you. I’d be asking for credentials too, but at least we have some Bible knowledge to test the spirit’s words against. That doesn’t mean we can’t get tricked, but it’s an advantage many don’t have at all.

      • SkinnyAndShort

        You saw a demon that presented itself as harmless? If you don’t mind me asking, what actually happen? Did any interaction happen?

        • 1914for100Alex

          I didn’t actually see it. It was more of a “what it did” type of thing. It started out with me being out with a handful of friends. One of my friends excused herself to go to the bathroom, but when she came back she was really shaken up. She said there was something in there with her and that she could feel it watching her. Being the good friend that I am, I proceeded to tease her. We know each other well enough that she knows I believed her and was just messing around. A little while later it was my turn. I excused myself to the men’s room and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. No weird feelings or anything. I went to the sink to wash my hands and turned on the faucet. So far so good. Water came out just as it should and I washed my hands. What happened next was crazy. I turned the faucet off and the water stopped coming out, but the sound of the water coming out and splashing around in the sink didn’t stop. I stood there watching it and thought to myself “you’ve gotta be kidding me”. Most people would have probably freaked. I reached out and turned the faucet back on, and water came out but there was no additional sound of water coming out. It just blended right in with the sound I was already hearing. I shut it off, and this time it worked as it should. I walked out, sat down with my friends and told the one that had gotten scared that yep, you’re not crazy.

          The only way that I can explain why I wasn’t scared is, for one, it wasn’t like something out of a horror movie. I have no idea how I’d react to a violent manifestation. What I’ve taken away from it is that it didn’t strengthen my belief in Jehovah or the devil or any of that, because I never doubted it.

        • ROLEE ALLEN

          I made the mistake of dabbling in the occult, using a ouija board as a joke several years ago when I was younger and much more stupid!….worst mistake, it worked and I began to have issues with unimaginable demonic influence…STAY AWAY from all of it!..They would NOT let me go or leave me alone….Only many years later and NOT with my own power could I break the hold..the demons don’t give up, expecially if you give them an invitation…Praise Jehovah and may the demons tremble at His Holy name….I am only mentioning this to stress the importance of not letting your guard down, even as a joke, because it most certainly is not!

      • LW

        I agree it has been subdued, but like you said that is all about to change. The thing is, people who don’t engage in occult practices think the demons and the spirit world is pure fantasy. For someone who has dabbled in such, it would be much easier for them to appreciate the truth about Jehovah and Jesus. Even raised as a JW, we would not (and should not) be involved with those things. So if such an evil being directly challenged a JW face to face, we’d see how strong their faith in God really is..heh

        • 1914for100Alex

          I’ve read several stories about people dabbling in the occult that get more than they bargained for and turn to God. I suspect this is due to them having no clue what they’re playing with, and when they find out just how real it is, they want nothing to do with it. Personally I won’t, nor have I ever, considered playing around with that stuff. I’ve read about it, but being raised JW I think I have a different understanding of what I’m reading versus your average person. I was never intrigued by it. It was more educational reading regarding what these people think.

    I am convinced of, and understand the relationship between Jehovah and Jesus and the the basic bible truths I have been taught since i was a young boy. I can find these in the bible and they have never left my heart. Thanks to this site, I’ve got the 1914 delusion sorted out, I understand the anointing of Christ’s brothers, the overall timing of things, and so much more, it’s awesome!!! I am so appreciative of this and will continue to dive in, I am actually probably a bit obsessed with the adventure. I wish my capacity to learn was as great as my appetite.

    Years ago, there was a sister who gave me an approximately 10″ wide X 4′ long card stock fold out. It was a timeline that had on it dates that corresponded with biblical events. It started from creation, the garden of Eden and progressed through the flood to the Abrahamic covenant and so on, I wish I still had it. This is what I am after, I will make it myself if I can’t find it somewhere. It will include references on why one can trust the bible and links to back up each point in time along the way. Just the basic facts, the details will fill themselves in.

    Thanks again for the encouragement, I plan on going to the Sunday public talk this week, I’m letting you all know so that I might hold myself to it!

    Joshua= Jesus
    Joshua=faithful and discreet slave (Jesus= faithful and discreet slave?) FDS= human=GB??
    Manna=Jesus
    angel prince=Jesus
    Joshua=holy ones
    holy ones=anointed (144000?)
    Joshua=chosen ones (144000?)
    Jehovah was with Joshua=Jesus is with his brothers
    angel prince (Jesus) is with Joshua= Jehovah is with Joshua
