The Unexpected Cosmology

Two Mules for Naaman’s Cosmic Turf War - ONE CANNOT help but wonder, in the midst of his desperation, if the honorable captain of the kings host in Syria had already gashed himself with knives, perhaps even commissioning others to perform the sacred rites, only to be told by the high-priest that Baal was away on business, or had fallen asleep, or was […]

“Go Serve Other Gods…” The Biblical Worldview of King David (1 Samuel 26) - THE KILLING of the Philistine giant Goliath by the shepherd boy David did not go over nearly as well as one might expect. The initial twist to the plot is that the King of Israel wanted the child whom the Prophet Samuel had anointed dead. There were of course other complications, but the short of […]

The Untold Story of Babel—Confusion of Tongues (and Inheritance of Gods) - EDEN’S VISION had failed, and that is putting it lightly. Yahweh’s created image and the sons of God who had copulated with the daughters of men had failed so miserably in their commissioned tasks that “it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.” We […]

Nations of Inheritance | According to the Sons of God or Children of Israel (Deut 32:8-9)? - MY READER is likely well informed regarding my desire to honor the Textus Receptus, the Greek New Testament by which both the King James Bible stands upon and  the Reformation took flight—though I am not beholden to it. The bad blood pitted against the Codex Sinaiticus and the Codex Vaticanus by those indebted to the […]

Micaiah Overhears a Lying Spirit - A HUNDRED and fifty years ago Saul took his own life and now the wicked King Ahab of Israel has asked Jehoshaphat king of Judah if he would agree to join him at Ramoth-gilead for battle.

The Tragedy of King Saul & the Necromancer - “THEN SAMUEL TOOK THE HORN OF OIL, and anointed David in the midst of his brethren, and the Spirit of Yahweh came upon him from that day forward (1 Samuel 16:13).” Though we are not intimately told about the judicial sessions going on behind the scene in heaven, the reader who is well informed on […]

Paralyzed Under the Gaze of the Creeping Planets (Job 38) - ASKING SUCH inconsequential questions as “How many angels dance on the head of a pin” has long been accredited to the sort of arguments of absurdity, or reductio ad absurdum in Latin, which aided and abetted in the crippling of medieval scholasticism while the Turks occupied themselves with more practical matters—mainly, the conquest of Constantinople. […]

The Ancient Hebrew Pantheon According to Psalm 82 - THE HEBREWS were still hopelessly captive in Babylon when the Prophet Daniel had a rather hopeful vision. “As I continued looking,” he wrote of heaven, “a multitude of thrones were set up and the Ancient of Days took His seat amongst them.” Much earlier on, the Bibles aboriginal writer began the book of Job describing […]

The Fatal Silence | MYSTERY BABYLON & the Lake of Fire according to 1 Enoch - LONG AGO TWO HUNDRED ANGELS DESCENDED upon Mount Hermon in order that humanity might learn the mysteries of heaven, and then one day, while Azazel, Semjaza, and the lot of their fellow transgressors were sitting around weeping, the Prophet Enoch met them. He had been asked to write a petition on their behalf, that they […]
