DEAD MEN’S BONES
In the opening salvo of Dead Men’s Bones, we
noted how the prophetic pattern of twin timelines may be seen, as
the Christian body in America is recapitulating the sins which were
characteristic of ancient Israel.
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and
that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under
the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
This adage from Solomon is narrowed in the New
Testament, as the Apostle Paul tells us that all the things which
happened to Israel occurred as Spiritual signposts for the Christians, as
“types” (symbolic pointers), to help us recognize what God is doing
in our midst, in the New Testament era.
“Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are
come” (I Corinthian 10:11).
In ancient Israel, the conflict between the LORD (Yahweh
in the Biblical manuscripts) and the lord (Baal in the heathen manuscripts)
was the premier conflict in many Old Testament accounts. As the religious
writings of the Mesopotamian nations looked very similar to the religious
history of the Israelites, many began to believe that Baal was
just another name for the LORD.
For example, in the non-Hebrew writings of the Gentile nations,
the Baal accounts spoke of how Fallen Angels once
bred with the daughters of men – and the hybrid offspring were powerful
“gods” who ruled. In these Mesopotamian
“scriptures,” the top god (who was named El) –
with his co-regent Baal – decided to bring about a great
flood which would destroy the world. However, in the confusing pantheon of
gods, and human-hybrid gods (the offspring of the human-demigod union just
mentioned), a righteous man named Utnapishtim was warned of the
coming catastrophe, and instructed to build a big boat so he and his family
Various writings from the ancient near East – such as the
above account drawn from the Epic of Gilgamesh – even used
some of the same ancient words as the Hebrew manuscripts of the Old Testament.
Other documents, such as Enuma Elish, provided similar parallels
to the Biblical account of creation. The discovery of the Baal Cycle,
in which details of the worship of Baal is prominent, thrilled
scholars as they noted extensive similarities to the Old Testament.
These writings were the result of excavations in Syria, and they
trace back to Ugarit – a locale thought to be Caananite
at the time when Joshua and the Israelites conquered the region
– a period just after the days of Moses and the Exodus.
As scholars have long believed large portions of the Old
Testament were edited and codified centuries later than the periods described
(such as the Exodus, and the rule of the Kings of Israel), they
concluded the Ugaritic “scriptures” were the
original, and the Hebrew Old Testament was heavily derived from these heathen
documents. Most Christians are unaware of the fact that Biblical scholars
routinely accept this perspective, even as they conceal their beliefs (or try
to put a scholarly spin on the data) from the general populace. For instance,
one school of theology openly acknowledges their belief that at least some of
the Psalms were originally praises of Baal, which Hebrew scribes
supposedly changed to fit their religion.
“In fact, these Psalms were most likely originally
Ugaritic or Canaanite hymns to El which were simply adopted by
Israel” (Ugarit and the Bible, Quartz Hill School of Theology)
Popular Christian authors, such as Michael Heiser,
a frequent guest of Tom Horn’s Rapture Cult TV show Skywatch,
slyly claims the heathen writings greatly “influenced” both Old and
New Testament Scriptures.
“The story of creation, the genealogies before the flood,
the flood itself, and the tower of Babel incident all have secure connections
to Mesopotamian material that is much older than the Old Testament”
(The Unseen Realm, Michael S Heiser, page 101).
Heiser even agrees with the above mentioned Bible school which
stated the Ugaritic writings extolling Baal, were
copied in the books of Moses – with the Hebrew authors simply changing
the name of the deity from Baal to Yahweh. For instance, in one of several
similar statements, Heiser wrote about verses where the Scriptures have the
LORD present in the clouds. In this regard, the Christian apostate again stated
the verse was originally penned by Mesopotamian authors describing Baal:
“The biblical writers occasionally pilfered this stock
description of Baal as cloud rider and assigned it to Yahweh”
(Unseen Realm, Michael Heiser, page 251, emphasis mine).
In short, Heiser is saying the writers of the Bible
plagiarized writing dedicated to Baal, and passed it off as the Word of the
Multiple sources in “Christian” academia even tell us
these Caananite “scriptures” were the model for the prophecies of Daniel
7 – once again, reducing the Word of God to an imitation of the
Satanic Baalim texts. Indeed, when we hear how each new generation of Bible
school students (who are destined to become pastors, teachers, and authors) no
longer believe in things like the virgin birth or the literal return of Christ,
we can see just how the foundations of our faith were replaced by this supposed
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous
do?” (Psalm 11:3).
Unfortunately, these examples are not the exception; they typify
the state of “Christian” scholarship at universities, seminaries,
and a multitude of Bible schools. The prophetic pattern of twin timelines,
in which the Christians recapitulate the history of the Israelites (wherein
ancient Israel embraced Baal on a wholesale basis), is now full
steam ahead. However, the real LORD of the Bible, Yahweh, has promised
to intervene when the evil rises up to unprecedented heights.
“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of
the Lord shall lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:19).
The reality is that long ago, the “scholars” were
presented with the astonishing evidence that large amounts of ancient history
have been wildly distorted, as the evidence actually shows the Mesopotamian
writings were derived from the Scriptures – not the other way around.
The truth is, a brilliant writer named Immanuel Velikovsky (1895-1979),
dedicated years to a revisionist history project which demonstrated enormous
chronological errors have crept in to secular and religious history, and the
result is a discrepancy of a period between 400 and 700 years in almost every
major antiquarian kingdom.
In a series of books entitled Ages In Chaos,
Velikovsky convincingly showed historian’s early error in synchronizing Egyptian
History with the Old Testament chronology. Most early history is either
synchronized with the Biblical record, or ancient king’s lists of Egypt.
In an elaborate, well documented effort, the Jewish writer showed how many
Egyptian kings had multiple names and titles, including throne names, religious
names, and dynastic names. There are documented examples of Pharaohs who had 30
different names. Because of this, the majority of scholarship counted the
reigns of many of these kings multiple times – thereby stretching their
tenure far longer than the time which actually elapsed.
Further, relying on dubious dating techniques, and what we now
call junk science, the net result caused a huge disconnect between
parallel Hebrew history and Egyptian historical accounts – invariably
discrediting the validity of the sequence of events in the Old Testament.
For example, the Bible tells of ten devastating plagues which destroyed Egypt
when they oppressed the Israelites, but the Egyptian records from that period
show no such turmoil. However, there are records of terrible cataclysms
which struck Egypt, but the “scholars” tell us the time in which
they occurred was hundreds of years from the time of the Passover and the
The Egyptian annals tell us the first pyramid was designed by
Egypt’s first Grand Vizier – a highly revered figure named Imhotep.
Archaelogical records from Egypt tell us he came to power during a great famine
which lasted 7 years, and he lived to be 110. The Egyptian
monument called The Stele of the Famine, tells us the Pharaoh
asked Imhotep, who the records say was a foreigner, what
to do about the famine. Most biblically literate believers will recognize him
to be Joseph, who was sold into slavery by his brothers.
Genesis tells us the Pharaoh made him Grand Vizier as a
result of his able handling of the famine, which the Bible said lasted 7
years. The Bible also says he lived to be 110 – but the
“scholars” tell us they can’t be the same man, because they
claim there’s a difference of about 700 years in their history.
An ancient Egyptian artifact, known as the Ipuwer Papyrus,
tells of how Egypt was once devastated through mysterious, destructive events.
However, the scholars quickly dismissed the connection to the Passover,
as they were already convinced the Exodus never happened. Ipuwer’s
Papyrus tells of a sequence of devastating events.
“….Plague is throughout the land. Blood is
everywhere…the river is blood” (Papyrus Ipuwer, 2:5, 6;
2:10, cited in Velikovsky, Ages In Chaos, page 44.)
The book of Exodus details identical circumstances:
“And [Moses] smote the waters that were in the
river…and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood”
At the border of Egypt and Palestine is the shrine of El
Arish. Chiseled in stone, it is an Egyptian account a great catastrophe
in which the king of Egypt died. The Egyptian text describes a time of great
“The land was in great affliction. Evil fell on this
earth…it was a great upheaval in the residence…nobody left the
palace….neither the men nor the gods could see the faces of their
next” (Velikovsky, Ages In Chaos, page 58).
The Scriptures tell us of identical conditions.
“And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and
there was darkness over the land of Egypt…They saw not one another, neither
rose any from his place” (Exodus 10:22, 23).
The Egyptian El Arish inscription goes on to tell how the
Pharaoh perished in a “whirlpool” while fighting against
“His majesty leapt into the place of the whirlpool”
(The Antiquities of Tell El Yehudiyeh, page 73).
The inscription provides an incredibly important detail in that
it actually names the location where the Pharaoh died:
“His majesty [here are words that are missing] finds on
this place called Pi-Kharoti” (Ages In Chaos, page 63).
The divinely inspired account known as your Holy Bible
tells the tale:
“But the Egyptians pursued after them…and overtook
them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, before Baal
Zephon” (Exodus 14:9).
The Egyptian and Hebrew accounts are obviously parallel, but the
scholars still tell us they are separated by hundreds of years. Because
Velikovsky’s radical revisionism demonstrated that vast amounts of
scholarship are in significant error, his work was vigorously attacked (and
widely persecuted by vested interests) on a wholesale scale. The Spiritual
dimension is clear, as Velikovsky’s reconstruction showed the
Biblical accounts to be strikingly accurate. After Ages In Chaos,
he undertook a retelling of the Assyrian chronicles in a book (now published by
Christian Media) entitled The Assyrian Conquest –
and this work also showed historical dating to be inaccurate an average of 400
to 700 years.
After Ages In Chaos, Doubleday published Ramses
II And His Time, an astonishing work which shed new light on the Ugaritic
texts – including the Baal Cycle. Ramses II And His Time
showed the cuneiform writings (found at Ras Shamra/Ugarit), which the
conventional chronology places late in the 2nd millennium BC, should be
assigned a date centuries later – at a time when the Old Testament was
For example, consensus history has at least one of the kings of Ugarit
– a royal named Arhalba – as a contemporary of Mursilis,
who was a Hittite king. However, Velikovsky has proven that Mursilis was
actually a Hittite name for Nabopolassar, who was the
father of Nebuchadnezzar. This means the period of the Ugarit
written accounts we’re examining was actually centuries later than the
scholars have been taught. In other words, Immanuel Velikovsky’s
resynchronization of world history shows the Baal materials
– which the faithless Bible scholars now universally claim inspired the
Bible writers – came after the Old Testament accounts were
compiled, not before. To put it another way, Velikovsky’s massive
research showed the Baal materials were not written in Joshua’s
day at the conquest of Canaan – they belong to a time as late as the neo-Babylonian
Empire, hundreds of years later.
No wonder Velikovsky was so viciously blacklisted far and wide.
The Bible tells us that in the last times, the LORD of glory
– the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – will send a strong
delusion, which will facilitate His judgment of individual men and
women who are in significant error, because they have not received the love of
“And for this cause God shall send them strong
delusion, that they should believe a lie…because they received
not the love of the truth” (II Thessalonians 2:11, 10).
It’s worth noting the Greek word in the New Testament
manuscripts rendered delusion in the above verse is rendered error
in another passage. In short, God will send a potent, deluding error in the end
times. In reviewing this stunning data, I can’t begin to calculate how
many times believers have told me they just want the truth – which is, in
itself, a lie. You don’t want the truth, and neither do
I, as it’s simply not in us. The Bible says we are all liars.
“There is none righteous, no, not one…there is none
that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God”
(Romans 3:10, 11).
The fact is, it is the Spirit of the LORD which God places within
us, which seeks after Him – as apart from Him, there is not one who seeks
the truth. Once again, this is a core facet of the New Covenant, which tells us
it is the Spirit of God in us which loves the truth. Indeed, the
Scriptures tell us we are NOW in the great Falling Away, and that
Snare has already come upon all those who dwell on the earth.
“For as a snare shall it come on all them
that dwell on the face of the whole earth” (Luke 21:35).
At Christian Media, we don’t dwell on the Earth
(among the allegorical Dead Men’s Bones), for we are born
again in the Spirit of God, and our citizenship is in heaven, where we
are now seated in Christ.
“But God…hath raised us up together, and made us sit
together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:4, 6).

To Be Continued
Christian Media also has a regularly issued companion
letter commenting on the material seen in DEAD MEN’S BONES, as well as other current
topics related to Bible Prophecy. The latest edition of that letter (labeled a Ministry
Status Report (MSR) and COMMENTARY) which goes to everyone who has
requested our materials, has even more prophetic information concerning issues
of importance to our generation. Further, Christian Media has an
eye-opening online on-demand video elaborating on the crucial facts seen in
this article —
which also includes how the system of Baal has quietly encroached
on Christianity through the faulty research of scholars. However, the enemy has
already sown tares in this vineyard, and we choose not to provide the website
links here, as those who think they’re doing God service are tirelessly
trying to excise the truth from the Internet.
Viewing of the online video on this subject is completely
free, and we greatly desire as many as possible will see it (a new video will
replace it in another week), but to examine this subject further, we ask for a
green light from you to send you the link. Further, because there are many
vested interests which are threatened by the facts the Christian
Media ministry provides, regular efforts are made to penetrate our ranks
– including hacker attacks. Incredibly, we’ve already proven that
“Christian” parties have actually hired hackers to take down our
websites. Thus, we desire to weed out those who are insincere about further
examinations of the truth of the Gospel, so we send the links to our Internet
materials via surface mail.
As we move through the wilderness of this world, even our
Internet domains are subject to be seized by the dark powers, so we urge all
those who hear the voice of the LORD in these Communiques to seek the
LORD while He may yet be found. As those who have inherited the light of God
through Christ’s marvelous work,
“[We] must work the works of him that sent [us], while it
is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
