Our goal now is to recover the letter perfect inspired text of the Bible. This article details the problem and our general steps to get there.
David's Fallen Tent
The tabernacle was most famously set up by Moses and Joshua son of Nun after their generation had come out of Egypt. It was first set up about 2 years after leaving Egypt. It was carried across the Jordan and then came to permanent rest in Shechem. This was the location of Abraham's ranch. It was the center of national life across the Judges.
That tent that contained and important set of Tabernacles items. That tent lasted until the time of David. David had moved the national capital from Shechem to Jerusalem. He wanted to build a house to contain those items. He was rebuked for wanting a house instead of a tent.
David's son Solomon rejected the prophetic word to leave the tent alone, and instead built a house. The tent and its artifacts were lost to the public from that point forward.
Amos 8 and Acts 15 both speak of the recovery of David's fallen tent as an end-times event.
These passages mean there will be a recovery of the Tabernacle of Moses and most importantly the inspired contents.
Purpose Of Content
The original Exodus era accounts of the Tabernacle are very obscure. Moses of the passages that describe that tent easily fall by Acts 15 based rules of additions.
It seems that later editors wanted that tent to be the archetype for their pagan temples, so they wrote in how it was a place of sacrifice.
We believe this tent was setup to hold a series of items that explain the design of inspired text.
The text itself is built on letter forms that are themselves proven by study of an extensive set of 3d models.
Those models were kept at that tent for public access and education.
Those 3d models were presented in a series of carriers, called 'creatures' in most English Bibles. Those carries are seen prophetically by later writers. They were never seeing something new, they were always seeing items in the lost Tabernacle. Ezekiel is especially filled with these visions. Zechariah is another.
Each of the 4 3d model sets requires its own special carrier that shows off that particular set's 3d design. Each carrier also shows off some aspect of how inspired text is designed.
There are a bunch of other items that also go in that tent. Each has an important role to play in teaching about the design systems that prove the text is not written by men.
These include, but are not limited to, the following:
Joseph's Robe. A specially designed cloth that lays out the canvas on which inspired text is written.
Moses' Staff. A staff engraved with the audit pattern that is valid for 1 line of inspired text. Like Moses divided the sea, that staff divides inspired from uninspired text.
A Lamp. A very special lamp that explains principles of the audit and manuscript multiplication.
Lamp Stands. An unknown number of basket like bases for the lamp. These explain the ciphers used for additional volumes.
Qu Map Case. One of the 4 cases used for holding 3d models. Details of the design for this are known to us.
Fig Tree. The subject of various NT parables, Nathanael famously sat under this tree.
Other cases. For the other 3d model sets. Details for these designs are as yet unknown.
A chest. Details unclear.
Commandments. A reproduction of the engraved commandments stones.
Other items. We most likely do not know all the items.
These items become the basis for the full manuscript recovery work which naturally follows the fabrication of these items. We believe this is exactly what Joshua did at Capernaum before his public ministry began.
Let me list specific goals so readers here can understand what we plan on doing.
Goal #1) Prophetic Inspiration
Our immediate goal is to find a place where we can finish the designs for these items. It needs to be a spiritually peaceful place where we can spend time with Joshua and work out these designs.
We have been moving around since 1998. Every few years our location has changed and the nature and type of work done has shifted at each new location. We are now looking for the place that Joshua has chosen for this final phase of the recovery work.
This goal translates into our need for provision for such a place. We may have already been shown the exact property, but it will require provision before we continue.
Our recovery work does not significantly continue until we are located in this as yet unknown place.
Goal #2) Article Fabrication
The next goal is to fabricate each of these items using 3d printers and plastic. This will likely be done in parallel to #1 above.
These could be done in more ancient materials later, but plastic is a relatively inexpensive material and allows quick iteration while working on designs.
Goal #3) Manuscript Preparation
The by-hand recovery of the text requires a clean manuscript that reflects the text as passed to us from history. We are basing this work on the Syriac Peshitta. Public domain copies are available, but they are often wrapped in copyrighted envelopes.
There are spelling disputes between the texts that can be freely downloaded, so those disputes must be worked out, typically by hand.
Most English Bibles use an English versification system. The downloaded texts use a different system. To be most useful, the English system needs to be used.
The common address system of Books, Chapters and Verses then needs to be extended to a 4th level, Words. This text will then have a word accurate address system accurate. As individual words are found to be inspired, their original word-level address will be tracked as those words assemble into the inspired documents.
The goal here is to produce a reference Paleo Alphabet copy of a standard Bible. That text also needs a new app to display it. Think of it as a full featured Paleo interlinear version of the BRB currently found on our website.
We also intend to migrate all of the meta-data that exists in the BRB into this new Paleo Bible. That meta data helps inform other work that will follow.
Goal #4) Paleo Lexicon
All of the words in the Paleo Bible need to be brought into lexicon for that Paleo Bible. We need to build that lexicon.
The design is complicated by the various ways words are spelled. In the Bible text they are spelled with added vowels. In inspired forms they are spelled without added vowels, even though these are the same words.
So, this is not a simple lexicon as is commonly used with standard Bibles.
All paleo word definitions must be worked out at the same time. The inspired spelling provides the dictionary definitions. Early readers may not know how to work that system, so we need to work out an example definition for every inspired word.
Goal #5) Paleo Testimony
Passage in the Paleo Bible that are found to be inspired will be copied into a new text, the Paleo Testimony. If you have followed the blog this is also known as the Adam Text.
The current TT app is doing the same process in English. The English TT text is currently quoting inspired text from the BRB. In this paleo form it will be assembly inspired fragments from the Bible into a new and complete Paleo manuscript.
The only text that comes across into the TT is that which passes pass the audit pattern(s).
Goal #6) Ciphers
One of the 3d model sets can be used to create a set of ciphers. Those ciphers explain how to multiply the base text into additional volumes.
Those ciphers must be worked out through 3d modeling
Once modeled those ciphers become decorations for a set of items found in the tent.
Goal #7) More Volumes
There is strong evidence in the text that one proof of inspiration is that the base document can be multiplied into additional volumes. The parables of feeding the 5000 are built on this manuscript feature.
Once the base document starts to take form, and once the ciphers are done, it should be possible to start generating those additional volumes.
Goal #8) Sharing
At some point through this process it should be possible for us to start confidently sharing this work with a broader audience. We are currently cautious because of a serious risk of creating evil twins if we speak in detail too much too soon.
