The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue, are a set of biblical principles relating to ethics and worship, which play a fundamental role in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

  1. I am the Lord thy God / Thou shalt have no other gods before me
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother
  6. Thou shalt not kill
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery
  8. Thou shalt not steal
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
  10. Thou shalt not covet

Why the Ten Commandments ?

That is simple, if you live by these 10 rules, you live in peace.

Prophecies for Iran

Hundreds of years before Christ, in the ancient empire of Persia, a fiendish plot was hatched. A palace officer named Haman decided to exterminate the Jews. We can read the account in the Bible’s book of Esther, and it makes us realize some things never change.

Persia is modern Iran.

Queen Esther foiled that plot, and the blowback on Haman was the ultimate punishment: he was hanged on the very gallows he built to murder Jews. What will be the fate of today’s mullahs in Tehran, thirsting as they do for Jewish blood? For more than a decade, the regime in Iran has specifically threatened to wipe Israel off the map, and the country’s rapidly-advancing nuclear program will be poised to do the trick.

Or is something else in play ?

For Bible prophecy students, the whole affair is hair-raising in the extreme, because never before have nuclear weapons posed a threat to the state of Israel. Indeed, the Jewish state has never admitted to having nuclear weapons, and has “enjoyed” a nuclear-free Middle East. Until now. Check out all books by Bill Salus !

The Prophecy of Elam - http://www.alamongordo.com

Revealing the Ancient Prophecy of Elam.

As Salus notes, a nuclear confrontation with Iran (when the Israelis say “Never again,” they mean never again) and Israel would have catastrophic implications for the Middle East and the world beyond, as oil supplies would have a domino effect on nations’ economies. Salus has delved into the prophecies of Jeremiah and Ezekiel to reveal a scenario far more dramatic than a Hollywood film.

Salus is particularly good at unraveling prophecies, using historical research and Scripture as his benchmarks. He points out that contrary to some popular opinion, Bible prophecy is not some murky tangle. In fact, he says Ezekiel 38 is a “well defined” passage that speaks of a confederation and invasion of Israel in the last days.

And Salus also points out fascinating data — his trademark — that escapes even sharp researchers. For example, he says that the mullahs’ stranglehold on their own people is perhaps not so much of a stranglehold after all:

“From approximately 500 believers in 1979 [the year of the Iranian Revolution], to several million today, Iran is the fastest-growing evangelical population in the world. Christianity is burgeoning so rapidly that the rogue Islamic regime has instituted harsh policies to curb its growth.”

Isn’t that stunning? There’s much more to stun in “Nuclear Showdown.” Salus has produced another thriller (though non-fiction!) by highlighting some overlooked prophecies that might point to the current Iranian situation.

Though most commentators focus on ancient Persia/modern Iran, Salus points out that most miss the focus on Elam, an ancient nation that predates Persia.

Salus shows us that Jeremiah 49:34-39 is considered by Iranian Christians to refer to a looming catastrophe: “The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts:

Behold, I will break the bow of Elam,
The foremost of their might.
Against Elam I will bring the four winds
From the four quarters of heaven,
And scatter them toward all those winds;
There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.

“For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies
And before those who seek their life.
I will bring disaster upon them,
My fierce anger,’ says the Lord;
‘And I will send the sword after them
Until I have consumed them.

“I will set My throne in Elam,
And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says the Lord.
‘But it shall come to pass in the latter days:
I will bring back the captives of Elam,’ says the Lord.”

This “Judgment on Elam” is startling, especially if Iranian believers today are correct, because it means that a mass exodus will take place from Iran in the near future, with Iranian refugees dispersed to foreign countries: not to launch terror attacks, but to evangelize the nations!

In a supreme irony, the mullahs’ lust for power and nuclear arms is pushing the Iranian people to do the very thing the Islamic Republic most detests.

Dear reader, if you are even remotely interested in Bible prophecy, you owe it to yourself to get a copy of “Nuclear Showdown.” Salus has produced another sensational effort that is sure to stimulate much discussion as we peer into the rapidly unfolding near future.

The Book Of Daniel

The Book Of Daniel

Apocalyptic visions in Daniel : The four visions of chapters seven to twelve are an early example of apocalyptic literature and, in contrast to the earlier chapters, are introduced in the first person. One feature of this section is Daniel’s reliance on heavenly figures to interpret and explain his visions. The historical setting of the first chapters does not appear, except in the form of regnal dates. Chapter seven is written in Aramaic while chapters eight to twelve are in Hebrew.

The “apocalyptic” sections of Daniel consist of three visions and one lengthened prophetic communication focusing on the destiny of Israel :

  • Vision of the great beasts

The vision in the first year of Belshazzar the king of Babylon (7:1) concerning four great beasts (7:3) representing four future kings (7:17) or kingdoms (7:23), the fourth of which devours the whole earth, treading it down and crushing it (7:23); this fourth kingdom is represented by a beast with ten horns representing ten kings, followed by a further wicked king who subdues three of the ten (7:24), speaks against the Most High and the saints of the Most High, and intends to change the times and the law (7:25); after ‘a time and times and half a time’, this person is judged and his dominion is taken away (7:26); finally, the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven are given to the people of the saints of the Most High (7:27)

  • Vision of sanctuary elements

The vision in the third year of Belshazzar concerning a ram and a male goat (8:1-27) which, we are informed, represent Media, Persia (the ram’s two horns), and Greece (the goat). The goat with a mighty horn becomes very powerful until the horn breaks off to be replaced by four “lesser’ horns. The vision focuses on a wicked king who arises to challenge the “army of the Lord” by removing the daily temple sacrifice and desecrating the sanctuary for a period of “twenty three hundred evening/mornings“. Rams, goats and horns were used in the service of the sanctuary.

  • The prophecy of seventy weeks

The vision in first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus (9:1) concerning seventy weeks, or seventy “sevens”, apportioned for the history of the Israelites and of Jerusalem (9:24) This consists of a meditation on the prediction in Jeremiah that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years, a lengthy prayer by Daniel in which he pleads for God to restore Jerusalem and its temple, and an angelic explanation which focuses on a longer time period – “seventy sevens” – and a future restoration and destruction of city and temple by a coming ruler.

  • The vision of the kings

A lengthy vision (10:1 – 12:13) in the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, regarding conflicts between the “King of the North” and the “King of the South” (= Egypt, 11:8). Starting with references to Persia and Greece it, again, culminates in the description of an arrogant king who desecrates the temple, sets up a “desolating abomination”, removes the daily sacrifice, and persecutes those who remain true to the “holy covenant“. Yet the saints receive God’s kingdom.

The prophetic and eschatological visions of Daniel, with those of Ezekiel and Isaiah, are the scriptural inspiration for much of the apocalyptic ideology and symbolism of the Qumran community’s Dead Sea scrolls and the early literature of Christianity. “Daniel’s clear association with the Maccabean Uprising and those against Rome are a possible factor in the eventual downgrading of it, to include a redefinition of the role of prophet, keeping in mind that at roughly this time the Hebrew canon was being evaluated and adopted. (Eisenman 1997, p 19f).

In Daniel are the first references to a “kingdom of God“, and the most overt reference to the resurrection of the dead in the Tanakh.

The discovery of the first Dead Sea Scrolls in a remote Judean Desert cave in 1947 is widely considered the greatest archaeological event of the twentieth century. Bedouin treasure hunters and archaeologists ultimately found the remains of hundreds of ancient scrolls. These fragile pieces of parchment and papyrus, including the oldest existing copies of the Hebrew Bible, were preserved for two thousand years by the hot, dry desert climate and the darkness of the caves where they were placed. The scrolls provide an unprecedented picture of the diverse religious beliefs of ancient Judaism, and of daily life during the turbulent Second Temple period when Jesus lived and preached.

GENESIS

Among the oldest known copies of Genesis, the fragment of the Scroll shown here contains the description of the first three days of the creation of the world. 4Q Genesisg Date: 100–1 bce, Late Hasmonean Period, Language: Hebrew

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was formless and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep; And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”— GENESIS 1:1–2

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

Date: 30–1 bce, Herodian Period Language: Hebrew

This small scroll preserves one of the earliest known copies of the “Ten Commandments” (the Decalogue), a central dogma in Judaism and Christianity, and the majestic description of their divine revelation at Mount Sinai. “I am the Lord your God who took you out of the Land of Egypt out of the house of bondage. You are to have no other gods but me.”— DEUTERONOMY 5:6-7

PSALMS SCROLL

Date: 1–68 ce, Herodian Period Language: Hebrew. “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity”

— PSALMS 133:1
This book of Psalms is one of the best preserved biblical scrolls, containing 48 psalms, including 7 that are not found in the standard Masoretic version of the Bible. An additional prose passage provides one of the most ancient references to King David as the composer of the book of Psalms: “and David, the son of Jesse, was wise, and a light like the light of the sun… And he wrote 3,600 psalms.” Psalm 133, shown here, praises peace and togetherness.
MINOR PROPHETS SCROLL
Date: 50–1 bce, Herodian Period, Language: Greek. The “Twelve Minor Prophets” scrolls from the Judean Desert offer early evidence for the compilation of these short prophetic books into a single literary work. This particular fragment, from a Greek translation of the Minor Prophets discovered in the Cave of Horror at Nahal Hever, contains a prophecy of Micah about the End of Days and the rise of a ruler out of Bethlehem.
NON-BIBLICAL SCROLLS
Non-biblical texts discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls offer us a tantalizing glimpse of life during the Second Temple period and the opportunity to understand the attitudes, desires and aspirations of the people of that time. Most of the scrolls from the Qumran caves are religious writings from the Second Temple period. Some of these reflect the life and philosophy of a distinctive group that called itself the “Yahad” (“Community”). At other sites, the major finds were administrative and personal documents dating from the catastrophic Judean revolt against Rome in 132–135 ce.
Dead Sea Scrolls Predictions and Psalms Scroll 11Q Psalmsa Prophecies - http://www.alamongordo.com - Book of Psalms is the Best Preserved Biblical Scroll with 48 Psalms and 7 more that are not mentioned in the Masoretic Version of the Bible
ENOCH
Date: 150–50 bce, Hasmonean Period Language: Aramaic. The book of Enoch was not included in the canon of the Hebrew Bible. It tells of Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, who lived for 365 years and “walked with God”. The displayed fragment describes the heavenly revolt of the fallen angels, and their descent to earth to cohabit with the daughters of men and to reveal secret knowledge to mankind, a story hinted at in Gen. 6:1-4.
APOCRYPHON OF DANIEL
Date: 50–1 bce, Herodian Period, Language: Aramaic. The Dead Sea Scrolls contain extensive apocalyptic literature relating to the final messianic battle at the End of Days. The Aramaic Apocryphon of Daniel describes either a messianic figure or a boastful ruler that will arise as “Son of God” or “Son of the Most High”, like the apocalyptic redeemer in the biblical book of Daniel. The text calls to mind the New Testament proclamation of the angel Gabriel concerning the new-born Jesus: “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High… ” (Luke 1:32)
THE BOOK OF WAR
Date: 20–50 ce, Herodian Period, Language: Hebrew. The Book of War details an apocalyptic 40-year battle between the forces of good and evil. This fragment preserves a blessing to be recited by the leader of the surviving community upon their victory in the final battle, at the end of time: “God Most High will bless you and shine his face upon you, and he will open for you his rich storehouse in the heavens.” God and his holy angels will bestow abundance and fertility upon the holy congregation, and protect them from plagues and wild animals.

Prophecies Beyond 2012

Prophecies Beyond 2012

Willaru Huayta

This Peruvian “spiritual messenger” says that 2013 is the end of the Inca calendar, and in that year- a “huge asteroid” 3 times larger than Jupiter [ That would bereally BIG 😉 ] will pass close to earth, causing cataclysms that will kill off most of humankind.

Joan Parisi Wilcox

In her 1999 book, Keepers of the Ancient Knowledge – the Mystical World of the Q’ero Indians of Peru, Joan Parisi Wilcox, who has been trained to the highest level of Q’ero priesthood, reveals the Q’ero Prohecy of spiritual evolution and a Golden Age. The prophecy is incorporated into a 16th century Catholic philosophy of 3 ages. These are the Age of The Father, the Age of The Son, and the Age of the Holy Spirit. The latter, which the Q’ero call Taripay Pacha, began in the period between August 1 1990 and August 1 1993, when the world underwent a cosmic transmutation called a pachakuti.

The Taripay Pacha is the period extending approximately from 1990/1993 to 2012 during which mankind will spiritually evolve – it is the “Age of Meeting ourselves Again”, when time will end. The book covers Andean shamanism including the “engaging of the energy body”.

Daniel 11:5 and the King of the South

The King of the South (Muammar al-Gaddafi ?) shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he [Gaddafi son] shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

Quatrain III – 27  Nostradamus

The Libyan Prince powerful in the Occident [West], The French will become so enamored of Arabia, Studied in letters he will condescend The Arab language into French to translate. Muammar al-Gaddafi self-appointed heir, whom I believe must be one of two elder sons, Saef al-Islam or Khamees al-Gaddafi, becomes somekind of “powerful” in the Western world and there will be especially a connection with the French. His influence in the West will in part be a result of his shared hatred of the non-Arab Asians, including the Turks.

As Nostradamus next demonstrates, the “Libyan Prince” will also fuse Christianity and Judaism with the Sunni form of Islam largely practiced by the Arabs of the Middle East. He will possess great charisma and sex appeal since the Arab customs and dress will be somekind of “imitated” by French society. He will also be a great master of negotiation and a powerful orator, representing Africa and most of the Arab Middle East, thus becoming a true king of the south.

It is impossible to know for certain if Saef al-Islam will fulfill this prediction. However: Unless Muammar al-Gaddafi regime is overthrown, it goes without saying that the Libyan Prince will have to be one of his sons. Saef or Khamees al-Gaddafi are the best psychological candidates because they are more likely to have motive than their other brothers (both were wounded as children during the 1986 US air raid on Tripoli and Benghazi).

Between the two, Saef al-Islam is a name which resonates with galvanic power and, translated, means the sword of Islam. However, readers may keep alternative candidates in mind (should others present themselves) when reading quatrains applied to the Libyan Prince. He will come to power upon the death of his father in the year 2018.
