The Mesha Stele ( the Moabite stone)

11 Feb

DCF 1.0The Mesha Stele (also known as the “Moabite Stone”) is a stele (inscribed stone) set up around 840 BCE by King Mesha of Moab (a kingdom located in modern Jordan). Mesha tells how Kemosh, the God of Moab, had been angry with his people and had allowed them to be subjugated to Israel, but at length Kemosh returned and assisted Mesha to throw off the yoke of Israel and restore the lands of Moab. Mesha then describes his many building projects.

The stone was discovered intact by a missionary at the site of ancient Dibon (now Dhiban, Jordan), in August 1868. The next year it was smashed by local villagers during a dispute over its ownership, but a “squeeze” (a papier-mâché impression) had been obtained, and fragments containing most of the inscription (613 letters out of about a thousand) were later recovered and pieced together. The squeeze and the reassembled stele are now in the Louvre Museum.

The stele, whose story parallels, with some differences, an episode in the bible’s Books of Kings (2 Kings 3:4-8), provides invaluable information on the Moabite language and the political relationship between Moab and Israel at one moment in the 9th century BCE. It is the most extensive inscription ever recovered that refers to the kingdom of Israel (the “House of Omri”), it bears the earliest certain extra-biblical reference to the Israelite god Yahweh, and — if French scholar André Lemaire’s reconstruction of a portion of line 31 is correct — the earliest mention of the “House of David” (i.e., the kingdom of Judah).

2Ki 3:4 And Mesha king of Moab was a sheepmaster, and rendered unto the king of Israel an hundred thousand lambs, and an hundred thousand rams, with the wool.
2Ki 3:5 But it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel.
2Ki 3:6 And king Jehoram went out of Samaria the same time, and numbered all Israel.
2Ki 3:7 And he went and sent to Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab hath rebelled against me: wilt thou go with me against Moab to battle? And he said, I will go up: I am as thou art, my people as thy people, and my horses as thy horses.
2Ki 3:8 And he said, Which way shall we go up? And he answered, The way through the wilderness of Edom.

Mesha Stale Translation

1. I am Mesha, son of KMSYT (Kemosh[-yat]), the king of Moab, the Di-
2. -bonite. My father was king of Moab thirty years, and I reign-
3. -ed after my father. And I built this high-place for Kemosh in QRH (“the citadel”), a high place of [sal-]
4. -vation because he saved me from all the kings (or “all the attackers”), and because let me be victorious over all my adversaries. Omr-
5. -i was king of Israel and he oppressed Moab for many days because Kemosh was angry with his
6. land. And his son replaced him; and he also said, “I will oppress Moab”. In my days he spoke thus.
7. But I was victorious over him and his house. And Israel suffered everlasting destruction, And Omri had conquered the lan-
8. -d of Madaba, and he dwelt there during his reign and half the reign of his son, forty years. But Kemosh
9. returned it in my days. So I [re]built Baal Meon, and I the water reservoir in it. And I bu[ilt]
10. Qiryaten. The man of Gad had dwelt in Ataroth from of old; and the king of Israel
11. built Ataroth for him. But I fought against the city and took it. And I slew all the people [and]
12. the city became the property of Kemosh and Moab. And I carried from there the altar for its DVDH (“its Davidic altar”?) and I
13. dragged it before Kemosh in Qerioit, and I settled in it men of Sharon m[en]
14. of Maharit. And Kemosh said to me, “Go! Seize Nebo against Israel.” so I
15. proceeded by night and fought with it from the crack of dawn to midday, and I to-
16. -ok it and I slew all of them: seven thousand men and boys, and women and gi-
17. and maidens because I had dedicated it to Ashtar Kemosh I took [the ves-]
18. -sels of YHWH, and I dragged them before Kemosh. And the king of Israel had built
19. Yahaz, and he dwelt in it while he was fighting with me, but Kemosh drove him out before me. so
20. I took from Moab two hundred men, all his captains. And I brought them to Yahaz, And I seized it
21. in order to add (it) to Dibon. I (myself) have built the ‘citadel’, ‘the wall(s) of the forest’ and the wall
22. of the ‘acropolis’. And I built its gates; And I built its towers. And
23. I built a royal palace; and I made the ramparts for the reservo[ir for] water in the mid-
24. -st of the city. But there was no cistern in the midst of the city, in the ‘citadel,’ so I said to all the people, “Make [for]
25. yourselves each man a cistern in his house”. And I hewed the shaft for the ‘citadel’ with prisoner-

Deep Underground Military Base. Esau will try to hide

10 Feb

hugetunnelDeep underground Military bases or D.U.M.B. as its ironically called, is a Military installation that is set ether in side a mountain or deep underground.  Unknown to most people in the U.S. is a dark secret that has been right under your nose. The main function for these D.U.M.B. is to act as a bunker and safe haven for the powerful, super rich, and most influential people of the world. if  you have seen my previous post “Esau and the Horites” you know that the Edomite nations are not new to living under the earth. Job talked about them living in the rock and mountains

Job 30:6 To dwell in the cliffs of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks.
Job 30:7 Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together.
Job 30:8 They were children of fools, yea, children of base men: they were viler than the earth.

Whats unknown to them is that fact that this is prophecy being fulfilled. This fact was shown to me by a brother named Ya’qah Ban Yashral. Their is something Esau is scared to death of and its not the fall of society.

Isa 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
Isa 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

Isa 2:19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caues of the earth for feare of the Lord, and for the glory of his Maiestie; when hee ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
Isa 2:20 In that day a man shall cast his idoles of siluer, and his idoles of golde which they made each one for himselfe to worship, to the moules and to the battes:
Isa 2:21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rockes, for feare of the Lord, and for the glorie of his Maiestie; when hee ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

Starving North Koreans ‘are forced to eat their children’

31 Jan

I am not saying Koreans are Israelite but this is a prophecy in the Holy Scriptures

Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

January 28, 2013 – NORTH KOREA – Hungry parents in North Korea have been caught eating their children to avoid starvation, according to reports. One father is said to have been executed by firing squad for killing his two kids for food. And it has sparked fears there could be further cases of cannibalism in the country. The Sunday Times told how undercover reporters recorded several horror stories from inside the poverty-stricken nation. They included one man who dug up his grandchild’s corpse to eat and another who boiled his child and ate the flesh. Thousands of North Koreans are feared to be starving to death while their chubby leader Kim Jong-Un regularly dines on banquets. It is claimed that more than 10,000 people could have died from in the provinces south of the capital Pyongyang alone. One informant in South Hwanghae, said: “In my village in May a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad.” The informant told how the man even offered meat from his daughter and son to his wife when she returned from a business trip. He was arrested and sentenced to death after she informed the authorities and the children’s bodies were found. The reports were originally compiled by Asia Press using “citizen journalists” working inside the country.  One official told them: “In a village in Chongdan county, a man who went mad with hunger boiled his own child, ate his flesh and was arrested.” There is not enough food to go round the 24 million people who live in North Korea. Many face starvation because of grim conditions for food production including crippling droughts. But it is also under strict sanctions because of its nuclear ambitions. However just last week the defiant country outraged the world as it announced plans for a third nuclear missile test. –Sun

There are many Israelite Groups who feel that we (Israelites) should not store food for massive Dearth and world food shortages that are coming. Consider the story of Joseph and how he saved Egypt from starvation by storing food. When  you go shopping and put food  inside your refrigerator, that  is a form of storing.There are clear indicators and warnings in the Scriptures that The Most High Elohim YHWH shows his people to use wisdom and prepare.

Act 11:27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.
Act 11:28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.
Act 11:29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:
Act 11:30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

We see a clear testament of how Agabus got a vision from the the spirit of YHWH that there would be a starvation in the land during his time. We also see that from this, the Disciples sent food and provisions to those who needed it. This took a level of preparation to take heed to his, this is also not that much different for the story of Joseph.

Jer 19:8 And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.
Jer 19:9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.

The above verse is speaking of the siege of 70 AD which is also spoken of by Christ in the book of Luke. But we can see that a similar account of 208415-starving-kids-north-koreathe heathens going through this also. preparation is a factor of wisdom during a time of distress, but this does not in any fact take away from YHWH.

2Ki 6:25 And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver.
2Ki 6:26 And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king.
2Ki 6:27 And he said, If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress?
2Ki 6:28 And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.
2Ki 6:29 So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son.

Pro 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

Lam 4:9 They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.

Pro 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 
Pro 6:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 
Pro 6:8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

Bar 2:2 To bring vpon vs great plagues, such as neuer happened vnder the whole heauen, as it came to passe in Ierusalem, according to the things that were written in the Law of Moses,
Bar 2:3 That a man should eat the flesh of his owne sonne, and the flesh of his owne daughter.

We see that this is all through the whole Bible and in different time periods. We should prepare and keep wisdom for the latter days and of things to come. But what of the people who say that we should not store food in our house, and turn it into a sin to do so ie; some of your “Elders.”

Jer 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. 

2 esdras 15:57 Thy children shall die of hunger, and thou shalt fall by the sword. Thy cities shall be broken down, and all thine shall perish with the sword in the field.58 They that are in the mountains shall die of hunger, and eat their own flesh and drink their own blood, for very hunger for bread and thirst for water.

Psa 37:25 I haue bene yong, and now am old; yet haue I not seene the righteous forsaken, nor his seede begging bread.

Did he say AHYH (ahayah) or YHWH (Yahawah)?

23 Jan

One of the many questions I get asked is what is The Most High’s real name. I can understand the frustration when this subject comes up for brothers coming into the knowledge of who we really are. Now before I undertake this request, the first thing I tell them is this, 1. We are from a land where our way of thinking was different from the western Roman mind set.  2. The Torah was written in one language; Hebrew. So there are some words in Hebrew that can’t really be translated correctly. And after I give a short Grammar lesson, I will tell the true and correct name of the Elohim of Israel.

I know there are some who say Ehyeh (Ahyah) and some who say Yhwh, But I noticed a really dangerous trend within Israel. None of my people really and fully understand our ancestral language. I will try to provide some knowledge on this subject however, keep in mind this is not an attack on anyone or any specific Camp of people, this is just accurate proof of what the name of the God of Israel really is. So let’s look at the account of Moses in Exodus 3:14 in comparison to the next verse (Exodus 3:15) because there are a lot more clues than what most people may notice.

   Exodus 3:13  And Mosheh said unto the Elohim, Look, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, The Elohim of your fathers hath sent me to you; and they will say to me, What is his name? What will I say?

Hello-my-name-isExodus 3:13 ויאמר משׁה אל־האלהים הנה אנכי בא אל־בני ישׂראל ואמרתי להם אלהי אבותיכם שׁלחני אליכם ואמרו־לי מה־שׁמו מה אמר אלהם׃

So we can clearly see that Moses is willing to do the task asked of him.  All he needs is a name from the Elohim speaking with him so he can tell them who He is.

Exodus 3:14  And Elohim said to Mosheh, Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh: and he said, Thus shalt you say to the sons of Israel, Ehyeh (ahyah) hath sent me to you.

Exodus 3:14 ויאמר אלהים אל־משׁה אהיה אשׁר אהיה ויאמר כה תאמר לבני ישׂראל אהיה שׁלחני אליכם׃

Now in verse 14 we see that the name given to Moses is Ehyeh(ahyah) אהיה I find it interesting that we always see and hear other names of God, but never really Ehyeh. Yet right here in verse 14, we see the name Ehyeh(Ahyah). But let’s take a look at the root of the name Eheyh.

The root is היה H-Y-H (hayah) if we conjugate the verb in the first person this is what we get

היה
hâyâh      STRONG’S HEBREW CONCORDANCE
haw-yaw’
A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): – beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.

- 1st person  is  Eh-yah(ahyah) אהיה: I exist,  I am, To be as seen in Exodus 3:14 the verb ehyah literary means to exist or something to come to past as seen in Gen1:3

Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Gen 1:3 ויאמר אלהים יהי אור ויהי־אור׃

- 2nd person is Th-yah תהיה: you exist, you are or thou shall be as seen in Exodus 3:16

- 3rd person is Yh-wha יהוה : He exist , he is, or he shall be as seen in Exodus 3:16. but let’s take a look at Ehyah(Ahyah)

אהיה

Ehyah(Ahyah)

This is the first person which means I Exist and we can also translate this as I will exist but one of the differences between biblical Hebrew and English  is that biblical Hebrew only has two tenses “perfect tense” and ” imperfect tense.” The Ehyah is an imperfect tense. Now I can go into a lesson on tenses but we will save that for another time, But understand that a “perfect tense” is a completed action and an “imperfect tense” is an incomplete action (and this my friends is one of the many problems with our people when it comes to Hebrew Grammar. You can know as many Hebrew words as you want, but if you don’t know how to use them, you will apply western rules to an eastern language.)      These tenses are related to action. Hebrew is a very action oriented language that centers around concepts that you can see, feel, smell, and taste. Our language is based on solid functionality.

But English tenses are past, present, and future which are related to time. So you see, that when you translate a Hebrew verb into English, you have to translate a verb from a language based on action into a language based on time so you can see the obvious problems with this. And it doesn’t always work out the right way and this is the main problem with translations. The Japanese language kinda has this problem with English also. When you are reading the bible in Hebrew and you understand these concepts the translation problem doesn’t exist because your reading the Torah and Tanakh with a Hebrew mind and you’re thinking in Hebrew concepts. However for the edification of our people, we are going to have to convert this Hebrew verb into a English verb.

As stated above the “imperfect tense” is an incomplete action. This could be an action that was started but not finished, or an action that has yet to be started. So Ehyah can be translated as “I exist” (English present tense) or “I will exist” (English future tense.) We can also render it as “I am” ( using the verb “to be.”)  Look at the phrase in verse 14:

                   Ehyah Asher Ehyah 

so we have Ehyah and Asher. Asher is a relative pronoun, and can be translated as: which, who,what, because , or that. It’s really about the context that’s being used and that will be a factor in how it’s translated. We can translate this as

I will exist because I will exist

I exist because I exist

I am who I am

I will be who I will be

I am that which exist

When a translator is translating the text, he has to chose from these Five translations what would be the best translation to put in the text. However because the Hebrew language is such a dynamic language, there is no one right way to render this. Essentially all of these translation are right. In Hebrew one word can mean 20 different things in English and in English 1 word can be said 20 different way in Hebrew, Its about context of usage. Now let look at Exodus 3:15

Exodus 3:15  And Elohim said Again to Mosheh, Thus you will say to the sons of Israel, YHWH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, hath sent me to you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Exodus 3:15 ויאמר עוד אלהים אל־משׁה כה־תאמר אל־בני ישׂראל יהוה אלהי אבתיכם אלהי אברהם אלהי יצחק ואלהי יעקב שׁלחני אליכם זה־שׁמי לעלם וזה זכרי לדר דר׃

So the Elohim gives his name again but this time its different (יהוה)YHWH. The two names YHWH and AHYH are related to one another. Again here is the verb  היה Hayah and now here is the Hebrew verb Hawah הוה. It is identical in meaning and usage Lets look at the word Hawah

הוה

Hawh

- 1st person is eh-hawh “I exist”, or “I am”

- 2nd person is th-hawh “you exist” or ” you are”

- 3rd person is Y-hawh  ” he exist” or “he is. ”   Notice that this is in the third person. It’s important to know that all Hebrew names are words with meaning. A good example would be Sarah which was  Abraham’s wife. Sarah in Hebrew is shrah ( שׂרה) the root for this is shr (שׂר) which means a head person (of any rank or class): – captain (that had rule), chief (captain), general, governor, keeper, lord, ([-task-]) master, prince, ruler. Adding the “Ha” at the end would make this a feminine word giving you Shr-Ha, a mistress that is a female noble, princess or queen. So names like yahweh, yahua, yahueh, yehovah, or Jehovah etc mean nothing at all because there not Hebrew words. the Most High Elohim told Moses to give his name in the 3rd person, Because Moses was going speak in the 3rd person, meaning Moses (a 1st person)was going to speak to Israel(a 2nd person)about the Elohim he spoke with(a 3rd person)YHWH-IAM
