Michael Jackson Justice: Casting Lots Part 2

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

Casting Lots Part 2

There Is No Prophet In Gaming God

"And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile."

We left off “Casting Lots, Part 1” discussing Galatians 1, posted on a blog that I follow during the same time word came to me to seek out why God was angry with Balaam.  We ended with:

In prayer I had asked God “where do you want me to go from here.  This I prayed in the evening, and by morning, I had an answer; Two actually.

One came from another blogger whom I follow, which quoted the verses from Galatians 1 concerning those following “another gospel” not of Christ.

The second came in the form of a question:

What did Balaam do to make God angry?

If Balaam accepted “no” as an answer from God, what was it he did wrong?  Why is he used as an example through a great majority of the Bible?

The Error of Balaam

We’re going to cross paths again with the Mormon church/Latter-Day Saints, but it’s not just the Mormon church.  There are many churches leading people astray, and many organizations calling themselves churches will soon gather under one umbrella.  They are side-swiping large chunks of scripture in favor of doctrine, because that is what their seminaries and schools of theology are teaching them to teach.

This is what got every prophet in trouble with the religious leaders of their time.  God revealed the truth to them, they taught the people, and the leaders sought to discredit, oppress, persecute and/or kill them because this bit into their hold on people.  It diminished the power and influence of the religious leaders. 

Beguiling Unstable Souls

We reviewed this in Paul’s letter again, to the Galatians:

"Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet."

Then again in the letter of Jude, which 2 Peter 2 substantiates:

"Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core."

Balaam is mentioned in both of these passages.  2 Peter 2 warns of those who beguile unstable souls with covetous practices, following the way of Balaam who loved the wages of unrighteousness.

In the letter of Jude, these who follow the way of Balaam in running greedily after reward and are “rebuked”; and we learn of the devil coveting the body of Moses (whom the Jews trust) and the archangel Michael stops them.  These speak evil of those things they know not, and corrupt themselves with what they know naturally (physically). 

Is it possible to be in the world and not of the world?  Jesus did it, and when called, most prophets did it, but not without affliction from others, and even affliction within.  Most churches don’t even know they are of the world, because they have been trained right out of the meaning of the scriptures.

In John’s vision of the end, this practice of using wealth, power and influence is used to seduce the chosen from the truth; even Jesus was tempted by the devil with the wealth and kingdoms of the world in Matthew 4.

In the verse in Revelation, Balaam is mentioned again in Christ’s instruction to John about what to tell the church in Pergamos.  Within this church are those who hold the doctrine of Balaam.

"And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication."

It is here in these passages that we learn the rest of the story of Balaam and why God was angry with him.  Balaam did what God told him, and said only what God told him to say; but for gain, he taught Balak how to put a stumblingblock before those of Israel. 

This is where God showed me that “Balaam” is where He wanted me to go next.

Balaam, Balak and Babal

We had briefly mentioned Balaam before, back on the article “The Road To Damascus” in August of last year.  During that time we were awaiting the possible “inauguration” of the new “One World Trade Center”.

Well, on November 3, 2014 (11/03/2-14), the New York Post announces that the “One World Trade Center” is open for business.  Their first tenant, “Conde’ Nast” began moving in.   We know what the “One World Trade Center” symbolizes and the “fall” of the “twins” symbolizes.  We discussed this back on June of 2013 “Contending Over The Body Of An Angel”.   A date of opening was not published until this past Monday.  That many years off schedule testifies of a specific timing of future events.

The Bible testifies of the “fall” of the “towers” in Isaiah 30:25 as an event of the end times.

Wikipedia reports that the building “opened November 3, 2014” but the observation deck is not yet open and may not be until 2015.

What does the One World Trade Center have to do with Balaam?  Nothing, directly.  The completion of the “One” World Trade Center is another “marker” in a timeline of a chain of events to come.

Who is Balaam?  Balaam’s story takes place mostly between Numbers chapters 22 through 24.  During those chapters, Balaam obeys God and refuses Balak’s bribes to curse Israel.

"Balaam refused to speak what God didn't speak and would not curse the Israelites, even though King Balak of Moab offered him money to do so." – Source, Wikipedia

In Numbers 25:3-5, Israel joins unto Baalpeor, committing whoredom with the daughters of Moab and eating things sacrificed to their idols and bowing down to their gods.

In Numbers 22:4-5 Balaam comes into the picture as Balak, the king of Moab at the time, sends messengers to Balaam who was a prophet.  In these verses it says:

"And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time.

5 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:"

In verses 5-7 we run into the verse where the “lign aloes”  trees are mentioned, and where Jacob’s “seed shall be in many waters”, this was what Balaam prophesied to King Balak’s chagrin:

"How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!   6. As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the Lord hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters.

7. He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted."

It continues verses 10-11, Balak is angry because Balaam for the third time had blessed, instead of cursed Israel.

"And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed them these three times.   11. Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote thee unto great honour; but, lo, the Lord hath kept thee back from honour."

So Balak accuses the Lord of keeping Balaam back from honor.  Things change in Numbers chapter 25:

"And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.   2. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.

3. And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.   4. And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel."

Israel joins “Baal-Peor” in Numbers 25.   Who is “Baal-Peor”?

"Baal-peor "lord of the opening," a god of Moab and Midian"

“Lord of the opening”?  What opening?  The Pit?  Would this be the “angel of the pit?  They have joined themselves unto the lord of the pit?  Note that “Baal-Peor” is almost identical to “Balaam the son of Beor” in Numbers 22.

According to Abarim Publications, “Beor” means “a burning” or “consuming” to “a cleansing by burning”.

Beor is identical to Peor save the first consonant.  So out of scripture we get:

Balaam (Not of the people/destroyer of the people) son of Beor (consuming/cleansing), of Pethor (Interpreter of dreams).

Pethor –
“A town in Assyria”.  – Source,

Pethor –
“Interpreter of dreams” or “to interpret”.

Abarim also defines a possible translation of “Balaam” as “confuser of the people”.

All this takes place in a general area that is also associated with Asshur, son of Shem who settled with his family just north of where the land of “Abraham of Ur” was located.  As a matter of fact their borders over this time overlapped.

A short narration tells us that this takes place on the opposite side of the Jordan from where Joshua later takes Jericho.

"The main story of Balaam occurs during the sojourn of the Israelites in the plains of Moab, east of the Jordan River, at the close of forty years of wandering, shortly before the death of Moses, and the crossing of the Jordan. The Israelites have already defeated two kings on this side of the Jordan: Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan. Balak, king of Moab (Numbers 22:2), consequently becomes alarmed, and sends elders of Midian and his Moabite messengers (Numbers 22:4–5), to Balaam, son of Beor, to induce him to come and curse Israel.” – Source, and Scripture in Holy Bible

Moses is still in the picture here and if you will remember, dies during the book of Deuteronomy, even though God foretells him in the book of Numbers.  Aaron is stripped of his garments and dies on the mountain in Numbers 20; and Moses is shown the promised land that he cannot enter before he dies on the mountain in Deuteronomy 34.  It is interesting to note that Deuteronomy 34:7 says "Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated."

No wonder the devil wanted his body in Jude 1:9.  It says Moses “eye” was not dim.  Remember what Jesus said about the eye being single, then the whole body is filled with light in Luke 11:34.

The events with Balaam take place shortly before Joshua receives his instructions from Moses, then from God to “cross over” the Jordon on dry ground, to take the city of “Jericho”.

The location of “Pethor” which according to Abarim publications may not even be a location but a title, is still under debate.  However, the “Samaritan Pentateuch”, the “Vulgate” and the “Syriac Peshitta” say something interesting:

Balaam's location, Pethor, is simply given as "which is by the river of the land of the children of his people" in the masoretic text and the Septuagint, though the Samaritan Pentateuch, Vulgate, and Syriac Peshitta all identify his land as Ammon." - Source, Wikipedia

Ammon is not the same as “Amman”, at least not Geographically.  Remember it was stated that the designation “Pethor” was debated on whether it was a location or a title.  We theorized that “Pethor” etymologically meant either “interprets” or “interpreter of dreams”.  If we separate this word into syllables for a truer “root” word, we end up with “pe-thor”.

Pe = Paq/pac/pact; agreement, contract, covenant.  From root “pac” Sanskrit “pasa” – cord, rope; Greek pag – to fix, join together, unite. ”

Thor = "Odin's eldest son, strongest of the gods though not the wisest, c.1020, from Old Norse Þorr, literally "thunder," from *þunroz, related to Old English þunor (see thunder (n.)). His weapon was the hammer mjölnir ("crusher").; ThursdayRoman Jupiter was identified with the Germanic Thor. "

Pe+Thor = unite with/covenant with Thor.

Since we have covered the Syriac Christian language as that of “ktav avri” and associated it with the “earliest” language after the flood, that of “Abraham” of “Ur” meaning “origin/earliest”, let us take a quick look at the Syriac Peshitta:

Syria’s Secret Once Again

Damascus, Syria

Remember, “new” is not always “true”.

The Peshitta (Classical Syriac: ܦܫܝܛܬܐ pšîtâ for "simple, common, straight, vulgate"), sometimes called the Syriac Vulgate, is the standard version of the Bible for churches in the Syriac tradition. - The five excluded books were added in the Harklean Version (616 AD) of Thomas of Harqel.[2] However, the 1905 United Bible Society Peshitta used new editions prepared by the Irish Syriacist John Gwynn for the missing books." - Source, Wikipedia

The mention of rewrites by Harqel and an Irishman later in 1905 left me unsatisfied with this.  I disregarded the "Irish Syriacist" and leaned on Harqel who included the five missing books of the New Testament.

The Harlean version stated:

"The Harklean version is an Aramaic language Bible translation by Thomas of Harqel completed in 616 AD in Egypt.

The version is partly based on the earlier Philoxenian version, partly a new and very literal translation from the Greek New Testament.[1]" - Source, Wikipedia

I saw "earlier Philoxenian version" and clicked on that:

"The Philoxenian version (508) is a revision of earlier Syriac versions of the Bible. It was commissioned by Philoxenus of Mabbug and completed by his chorepiscopus Polycarp. Philoxenos' revisions were initiated by concerns that some of the Peshitto readings gave support to Nestorian theology.[1] It became the received Bible of the Syrian Miaphysites during the 6th century.

It was followed by the Harklean Version, an Aramaic language Bible translation by Thomas of Harqel completed in 616 AD in Egypt which was partly based on the Philoxenian version, and partly a new and very literal translation from the Greek New Testament.[2]" - Source, Wikipedia

This is a brief description of “Nestorian theology”.  It is irrelevant for now to the subject of the Syriac Christian Bible.  I read "The Philoxenian version (508) is a revision of “earlier Syriac versions of the Bible" - and since that was in blue hyperlink I also clicked on that -

Syriac Versions of the Bible -
"Syria played an important or even predominant role in the beginning of Christianity. Here is where the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of Luke, the Didache, Ignatiana, and the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas were written. Syria was the country in which the Greek language intersected with the Syriac, which was closely related to the Aramaic dialect used by Jesus and the Apostles. That is why Syriac versions are highly esteemed by textual critics." - Source, Wikipedia and Bruce M. Metzger (1977). The Early Versions of the New Testament. Oxford: Clarendon Press. p. 4–5.

Note where they mention some translations have been "lost", and most copies of this version are held in European libraries/museums, extracted from as far away as China:

"It is possible that some translations have been lost. The majority of the manuscripts are now held in the British Library[citation needed] and in other European libraries. They came from countries like Lebanon, Egypt, Sinai, Mesopotamia, Armenia, Georgia, India, and even from China. This is good evidence for the great historical activity of the Syriac church.[2]" - Source, Wikipedia

This is where another source we studied on the Semitic language of “Syriac” said the “language of Syriac Christianity” was spoken in most of the “Fertile Crescent”, Western Asia and as far south as the Indian Isles.

From the “Syriac Alphabet” I clicked on the link “Syriac Language”.  It is here I found something interesting:

"Syriac /ˈsɪriæk/ (ܠܫܢܐ ܣܘܪܝܝܐ Leššānā Suryāyā) is a dialect of Middle Aramaic that was once spoken across much of the Fertile Crescent and Eastern Arabia.[1][2][5] Having first appeared as a script in the 1st century AD after being spoken as an unwritten language for five centuries . . .

It became the vehicle of Syriac Christianity and culture, spreading throughout Asia as far as the Indian Malabar Coast and Eastern China,[8] and was the medium of communication and cultural dissemination for Arabs and, to a lesser extent, Persians. Primarily a Christian medium of expression, Syriac had a fundamental cultural and literary influence on the development of Arabic,[9] which largely replaced it towards the 14th century.[3] Syriac remains the liturgical language of Syriac Christianity." - Source, Wikipedia

Wow.  Still spoken today in “Syriac Christianity” and was spread throughout Asia as far as Indian Malabar Coast and Eastern China” (now you know the motive behind “colonization” in the last thousand years).

Let me remind you of the Aleppo Codex, and the Mossad of Israel's great "search" for those that have the missing pages of the one they ordered turned over to them from the Karaite Jews, now called "ISIS" and misspelled as "Kharijites".  See "Contending Over The Body Of An Angel" and recently "Syria’s Secret".

Assyria also covered the area where the older Semitic, Syriac language was spoken.  It was also spoken in much of the Middle East, western Asia and down to the Malabar Coast in India, up through Southern Turkey.

Balaam was not from any of the tribes of Israel.  He was of the children of Amon, from Lot’s side of the family and were given lands by God until they came up against the children of Israel.

Would you like to know what the children of Ammon are up to today?
