This blog looks at some interesting lists in Corinthians. Before that some clarifications on last week's blog.
In last week's blog I worked out the math for the modern prophetic interval of Joshua's time in the tomb. His entry into the tomb was fulfilled in the Jewish return to the Modern nation of Israel. The document signing dates for that event in 1948 get us the day-accurate starting point for measuring that time.
May 14, 1948 is the public signing date, when 400 officials were invited to a public signing ceremony. The 62 hours turn into 28,272 modern prophetic interval days. As I detailed last time, it lands on the following date...
13016-09-15 (2025-10-09) #4,748,115
We can adjust this back by 2 days to the private signing of that document and then on October 7 of 2025 we would hit the 2 year anniversary of when Hamas fighters entered (more precise, were let into) southern Israel about 3 weeks ago.
The date above is perhaps still interesting because it lands on the mid-month date, 09-15 in this case. That phases with normal plague series dates that are also likely rolling along.
The headlines this past week suggest the USA and Israel are getting ready to invade Gaza on the ground. That of course triggers Hezbollah and the rest of the Arab world to come to the Palestinian's defense. Or not, there is debate on that point too. The world might let the US, Europe and Israel get away with genocide. That genocide can escalate to World War 3 in a matter of hours.
I would not expect any escalation to happen very rapidly. Cooler heads will slow this down. Instead I would expect intense headlines in that venue to keep hitting monthly for the next 2 years. This is slow, even though the news suggests this will be fast.
Another way to say this is I expect this to be more punctuated. Likely headlines that shift the situation on the ground will land when the calendar is rolling the mid-month start of prophetic months, so YYYYY-MM-15 on the calendar most commonly. Edge of months can also happen, so YYYYY-MM-01 on the calendar is also a place to watch.
That October 2025 season is very close to the middle of a 7 year interval ahead of Noah's Flood related dates in 2029. 7 years are always 2550 days, but they do not always phase with calendar dates. Here is the 7000th anniversary of the Noah Flood date in 2029...
13020-02-17 (2029-02-22) #4,749,347
So we can check the difference between these 2 days to see what is going on...
4,749,347 - 4,748,115 = 1,232 days.
An interval of 1260 days is the most common reference to 1/2 of a 7 year interval. So that October 2025 date is about 1 month beyond the middle of the 7 years ahead of Noah.
The 2nd half of 7 year intervals are more precisely 1290 days. So that October 2025 date has some slop in it for related headlines. Ezra's arrival may follow some earlier headline by about 2 months.
I have been scanning for any sort of well written article that might give deeper history of events in Israel. The link here is to a long article posted on unz.com in April of 2019. Better than perhaps any other source than I have seen, it explains the situation in Israel and it explains how we got here.
The article does a nice job of defining terms. It is also giving a detailed history of how we got here, starting in the 1300s when the Roman Catholic church first started persecuting Jews.
Note that it was written before events these past few weeks so it is not based on the emotion of the moment. It does a very good job of defining important terms. Which I will share below and likely adopt in my own use.
If you have time for a 9,500 word article, I would recommend reading it yourself. It is very well cited, so you can go deeper on any of the main points. It also importantly covers the known history of Ezra the high priest. It is a prophetic echo of Ezra that we are expecting in 2025, so we should be alert to a bunch of details.
Let me review for everyone here on the blog the key details from that article.
1) Starting in the 1300s the Roman Catholic church began threatening Jews in Western Europe. Most were forced to convert to Christianity. They retained their racial identity, but as Catholics could then occupy high offices in the church and in the royal courts of Europe. The western church created the very thing they were so afraid of.
2) By the 1800s it became apparent to many Jews that they were in a position to eventually take back Jerusalem from the Arabs. The article especially cites Jewish UK PM Disraeli as having intentionally directed the British military to those ends because of his religious goals of recovering Palestine for the Jews.
3) In the mid 1800s this became a point of dispute within the Jewish communities themselves. Some felt that being Jewish was a religious statement, perhaps a racial statement, but not a national statement. Reformed Jews represented the best known group that held to this position. The other group were and are known as Zionists. This group felt that they were destined to recover Palestine and Jerusalem. This group also felt they should use any means at their disposal to make this happen.
4) Another name for the Zionists is Neoconservatives or Neocons. All references to neocons (and globalists) are simply references to the Zionists. This is the group that effectively controls the US Federal Government, including the purse, military and political agendas even to this day.
5) After recovering Jerusalem in 1948, the Jewish community went through another round of debate. Should all Jews move to Israel? The Zionists were now shown correct. They had succeeded in recovering Jerusalem. They had the upper hand in this debate.
But, they eventually realized it was better to have a split capital structure. One capital would be in Jerusalem while the other Jewish capital would remain in New York City. That is the situation we still see.
(This includes the UN and the home to the US Federal reserve. It is also home to one of the most corrupt court systems on earth, as Martin Armstrong testifies, so they can abrogate any law that might get in their way. Think Trump's trial too.)
6) That entire community holds to Ezra's version of the OT. That Ezra was the OT compiler/editor was first published in the western world in 1670.
(Christians have never liked this idea because it grates against Luther era doctrines of inspiration. Of course Ezra era OT edits grate against Christian sensibilities too. There just isn't an obvious way to be rid of Ezra's work. We seem to be able to fix this problem, thus the importance of understanding this history. It may be the basis for a future Reformation.)
7) Ezra was Persian. He was commissioned by what today we know of as a Persian king. (Think 2025, more below.) In Ezra's rewrite he uses the famous OT Hebrew divine name Yahweh in ways that marks his work. At times the term is used as it was in Persia. Persia's distinct god was a god of the skies. Ezra also uses that term as the god of the Jews. Ezra's edits of Solomon's era turn Solomon's temple into something bigger than it was and into a builder of a temple to the same god as Persia.
8) The article concludes with a warning that to understand Zionist goals we need to understand Ezra's edits of the OT. Building a world capital in Jerusalem, turning the entire rest of the world into their serfs are but 2 key points.
That article fills in a bunch of questions. Is the Deep State anything other than Zionists? No. Is Masonry a branch of Zionism? I think so, Yes. Indeed, the Masonic focus on Solomon's Temple is a giveaway that they are following Ezra just like Zionists.
James Lindsay has done a bunch of work to identify the 'world religion' and its various modern manifestations. This is part of the Zionist agenda to create distraction from themselves.
The term 'neocons' is a polite public name, but Zionists would be a more technically correct term.
Russia and Arab regions in the Middle East do not appear to have been so heavily infiltrated as western Europe. This might explain Zionists starting war in Ukraine against Russia. It also explains the desire for war against Iran. These are presumably areas without full Zionist control.
The American empire is likely an expression of Zionist control of earth, as the British empire was before. NATO control of Europe must also be considered another expression of Zionist control.
This point has implications on what we should expect come 2025. If there is an Ezra from Persia arriving in Jerusalem in 2025, then something has happened with NATO in Europe too. Perhaps something has also changed in the USA. Remember though that there is more trouble in 2029, so this is far from over in 2025.
Ezra is not the only editor. But he is the most important to the political organization of the world we live in. As we are supposed to build our world view from the text, we know of Ezra as villain 5 of what are 6 villains. So it is fully in bounds to learn about what his work has done in the world.
Each of the other editors has a place in the villain list too. But the community that Ezra created still runs strong. It still terrorizes the world. Ananias, villain number 6, was in Ezra's tradition, so the 2 worked as a team. Comments at Joshua's trial involving threats against Pilate suggest they felt they had control over Rome in that era too.
The article above puts heavy emphasis on the geographic differences between Nebuchadnezzar's Babylon and the Persian kingdom further east. By modern standards it is not that far. Persia was part of the Babylonian empire with 120 provinces stretching to India. But, we need to understand Persia as a fundamentally different place.
The story that matters to this split is late in the Book of Daniel. The lamp and the handwriting on the wall marks the end of Babylon, and the shift to the Medes and Persians.
If we are watching for history to simply repeat, we can expect an Ezra figure to arrive in Jerusalem in 2025, with a commissioning letter from a king based in Persia.
Though ancient Ezra creates the religion of modern Jews, this new Ezra may create something else, and not himself be Jewish at all. Ezra was himself building on an earlier set of edits. We can guess what religion this new Ezra might build upon.
At the same time, in 2025, Joshua starts to prophetically rise from the tomb. The resurrected form of Joshua can finally be seen, at least initially by a few people. I take this study personally. I believe it is the historical timing for some of our reformation style work. We are not late to getting this work done. We are still early.
Ryan and I have spent quite a bit of time this past several weeks rewriting the tag support used in the BRB. Most of the public work is done, though another large update to that code should be rolled out next week.
Ryan has been working poetry formatting, which is the most dramatic visual change. He has also, finally, been able to mark up lists of things as they appear throughout the text.
We did not expect this work to trigger a wave of discovery. But, we have been shocked by what he is finding.
The link here is to 2 Corinthians 6. As a design goal, most of the notations in the BRB text are disabled and not shown by default. You must enable them in the top right menus to see them. To see what I am discussing here, you need to find and enable 'lists.'
In that chapter, starting at verse 4, is a newly marked list.
In the regular text this is a list of 28 things. For good reasons Ryan believes Ananias, the last editor/villain, added 3 entries to what was an inspired list of 25 things. He has marked the 3 entries he considers added using the normal FA marking.
If you scroll down, and have Filters enabled, you will see a FA for 'Filter Ananias' in verse 8. At this verse are the 3 likely additions to the list.
So what remains is a list of 25. What do lists of 25 always mark? How could Ryan know with some assurance what 3 items do not belong in this list? How would you verify his work?
Lists of 25
The notation for list items always shows the rank and the range for the list. Like a numerator and denominator in a fraction. The range of the list will grid against all other lists of the same length. Some important fundamental idea sits behind all lists of the same length.
For lists of 25, these are the 25 thrones in the Revelation throne room. They are filled by the 25 kings. Popularly these are 25 Angels. These 25 are the writers of inspired text. These are all walk-off kings.
The context of this list in 2 Corinthians 6 is that Paul is explaining what it means to be a minister of god. In other words, he is listing off characteristics that each of us as followers of Joshua should exhibit when we are conducting Joshua's business.
The list itself has 25 attributes, each described by a short phrase. But, once we know that this is the list of the inspired writers, then we can use that list to find back-stories for each of these items. The back stories are in the stories of the kings themselves.
Let me give you a few examples to get you started.
The 1/25 entry is Enoch. The term is patience. Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken. He is the best example in this list of a king who demonstrated patience.
The 2/25 entry is Noah. The term is Tribulations. Noah's world was destroyed in his day and he followed Joshua to survive through it. We are to do the same.
From this point forward the exact English words that should be used are unclear to translators. There is dispute in the Greek, of course, because of another layer of translation. But there is also an issue of what these technical vocabulary words actually mean.
Take 3/25 for example. Distresses is the word Ryan is using as I write this. Abraham is the king. What distress did he go through? It is either departing the high society of Ur to live in tents. Or it is his age. Maybe some combination.
4/25 Isaac. Imprisonments. We don't normally think of him as spending time in a modern prison. But he was not allowed to go find his own wife. For some reason he appears to be imprisoned at the ranch.
Note importantly the list gives us back stories to find what Paul means for each of these terms. Each of those back stories tells us something about their biographies that commends them for walk-off status. Each give us a long story to know what Paul is saying. It gives us a story that needs to be imitated by each of us.
5/25 is Jacob. Paul's term is snares. Jacob's problem was the tricks Laban played on him to keep him trapped in Laban's service.
6/25 is Joseph. Paul's term is bonds. Of course Joseph was taken to Egypt in bonds.
7/25 is Moses. Paul's term is tumults. Probably this means something about how society that Moses knew collapsed around him. First, when he fled Pharaoh at age 40 and then again when he lead all of Jacob out from Egypt. Perhaps also the trouble he had with his public that wanted to go back to Egypt.
You should be able to imagine how Paleo word definitions will eventually help pick the matched historical story that Paul intended his readers to go find.
This is fun, but I don't want to take the whole list away from you. You can work the rest out on your own. The last item, 25/25, is a term that Paul repeats at the bottom of the chapter itself. It is a reference to Joshua.
This list, and others like it, seems to be a way for readers to learn what material is inspired in other areas of the book. If you do work down the list you will find that there are specific stories that illustrate each of these kings. Some are short, like Enoch's age, but most are involved.
Those stories must be inspired. So in the end, they must be part of the inspired Testimony of Joshua.
As Ryan is finding these lists he is finding stories in the OT that must have at least an inspired core. Not all of these stories are currently included in the TT app. They will be brought back as this work progresses.
List of Villains
If you continue reading down the chapter linked above you will see another list. This time a list of 6. These are of course the 6 villains, Solomon, Ahab/Jezebel, Nebuchadnezzar, Mordecai, Ezra and Ananias.
Paul is contrasting the 25 walk off kings, and their examples to the rest of us that we should copy, against the 6 villains that we should not be copying.
That list of 6 should not be hard for regular readers here to unpack, so I will also leave it as something to try on your own.
