ON THEOLOGICAL ISLAM
The witness of the Ancient Peasant
in the Name of the Flawless Book
1 The words of the Compilation, son of obedience, even the prophecy: So says the man to “God is with me,” even to “God is with me and so I shall prevail”:
2 Though I am more brutish than a man and lack the understanding of men,
3 And though I have not learned wisdom, yet I have the knowledge of holy matters.
4 Who has gone up to Heaven, having come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound up the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name, and what is the Name of His Son? — for you know that.
5 Every utterance of God is without flaw; He is a shield to those who trust in Him.
6 Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be proven a liar.
See even see how the esoteric-supplemental-distortional Oral Law concept of the Pharisees, who strained out the New Testament but swallowed that, as in Matthew 23:24, traces its ultimate origin back to the heretical overview of the text of the Pentateuch adopted by Jeroboam the son of Nebat and his counsellors, as in I Kings 12:25-33; and compare Exodus 32:1-6; Leviticus 23:33-34; and Zechariah 14:16; and truly there was not a word of all that Moses commanded that is not written in the book of the Law, for Joshua “wrote there upon the stones before the children of Israel a copy of the Law of Moses that he had written. And afterwards he read all the words of the Law with its blessings and curses, according to everything that is written in the book of the Law. There was not a word of all that Moses commanded that Joshua did not read before all the congregation of Israel,” as in Joshua 8:32, 34-35; and compare Deuteronomy 4:2 and 12:32; and Matthew 23:2-3 was said only in scorn and mockery, as the remainder of the holy discourse plainly establishes.
Now the last of the ethnic Jews departed this world as in Luke 13:1-9 (and compare Ezekiel 5:3-4 in the context of chapters 4 and 5) at the end of 1260 days, a time and times and half a time from 98 A.D. when the book of Revelation was given, but 1290 from the days of the Roman siege of Jerusalem, in the very year of the war of great Babylon against the men of the Jacquerie, even in 1358, and as per Revelation 12 (and compare Ezekiel 20:33-38; also Zechariah 5), at the time of “the even of the dawn” when “the sanctuary and true tabernacle, that the Lord pitched, and not man” was cleansed, 2300 years after completion of work on its appurtenances and those of its court and its formal dedication in the twenty-fourth regnal year of Solomon in 942-941 B.C. (Daniel 8:14, 26; Hebrews 8:2; I Kings 6:1, 37-38; 7:1, 13-8:2; 9:10), for Israelite rule over Jerusalem is reckoned as extending for 390 years in Ezekiel 4:5 and 9, that is from 998, the first year of David’s 33-year reign there as opposed to Hebron (II Samuel 5:5; I Kings 2:11; I Chronicles 3:4; 29:27) through 608, seventy years before 538, Cyrus’ first year, and so Solomon, whose service was not perfect and whose forty-year reign was made a type of the rule of the later Davidic kings over Judah and Jerusalem, as in Ezekiel 4:6, came to the throne in 965, and as is generally affirmed — for we were grafted in, but the chosen ethnics were cast off and driven from the world, and then we were alone the remnant of Israel and the sole surviving vestige of the people of the Jews; and this was precisely 500 years after the Exodus, as is apparent from these references and the sequence of events as indicated in I Kings 6:1-9:11, which occurred therefore in 1441 B.C., and the New Testament age extended from 3 B.C. when the birth of John the Baptist was foretold by Gabriel to his father Zechariah, as in Luke 1:5-25, through 98 A.D., and as above; and see then how the exact count of years, being 1438, that had elapsed between the Exodus and the beginning of the New Testament age, freedom upon freedom and even as grace upon grace, was observed again from the date of the giving of the book of Revelation and until the martyrdom of the two prophets spoken of in that book in 10:11-11:14 at Munster in January of 1536, and as discussed at length elsewhere; and these were entirely of truth as is that booklet of 10:1-10, and are over against and not at all of the type of that figure, first of higher critics, behind the sixth plague of 9:12-21 with which this unit of the second woe is introduced.
And the donkey of Balaam of Numbers 22:21-33 is a manifest figure of the elect, and Balaam himself who rides and beats her and whose moral sense and faculty of wonder are so cauterized that he does not so much as bat an eyelash when she begins to speak represents the elitist in his guise of ecclesiastic — and latterly secular ideologue — who makes of religion a control device and truncheon of wickedness, perverting the words of the living God, and he struck her three times and the third with his staff, she who never spoke but yet knew what the child of the evil one could not know, and these are distorted forms of Judaism and Christianity under which the Scripture of truth is hidden but preserved and then Islam that substitutes an exegetical overview of the Christian Bible for the text itself which is declared flawed and redundant and so suppressed, and he wishes for a sword at the end which is a figure of the Marxist ideology and its blind ever churning will, being the impress within it of the Judaic mind-set, to drive its adherents to self-destruction and through that to destroy the world, but the sword is found in the hand of the angel, and so it is Balaam, now a figure for the Russian, who dies by the sword without victims alone, as in 31:8. And the phrase rendered “three times” here appears once more in the Bible in Exodus 23:14, where it means “three pilgrimages” or literally “three walkings” and so bears the nuance of times, which nuance comes to the fore in the three Balaam account instances, though the term is incomprehensible unless one calls to mind its earlier occurrence in reference to Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. Now these “three times,” still “three walkings” literally, represent the three religions of the wider Biblical area, for the salient characteristic of Passover is the prohibition of leaven and the injunction regarding unleavened wafers, that is, of the type of dietary prescriptions, which prescriptions are viewed as representative of the Mosaic code as a whole in the words of Paul; and Passover is connected to Pentecost by the count of the seven weeks as a figure of the unity of the Law and the Gospel and the fulfillment of ancient prophecies in and through Christ, and on the fiftieth day of the count two wave loaves are brought as firstfruits — and the Holy Spirit was poured out on Pentecost, and so these two are the Jewish and Gentile components of the ancient church; and see Leviticus 23:9-21; and Tabernacles which no count connects with the earlier “walkings” became connected among all feasts to the heresy of Jeroboam, and as above, and so serves as a figure for Islam, which is grounded in a work of heretical exegesis, as though the heretical overview of a Pharisee or Christian ecclesiastic had replaced the Scripture, which was then suppressed; but the count of bullocks of the offerings of the seven days of Tabernacles arises to seventy bullocks, as in Numbers 29:12-34, being the same as the count of peoples of the Biblical region of Genesis 10 — and see how that number therefore represents all peoples in Deuteronomy 32:7-9 — and so the overthrow of all heresy and false teaching at the end of days is represented by the universal celebration specifically of Tabernacles to which the impurity of false doctrine had especially adhered, as in Zechariah 14:16-19; and note the especial warning to Egypt there, as though she is a figure for the entire region of Islam of this our day. And might we not well expect that a work as innovative as this Koran of the Muslims, as though it was a second New Testament, would contain instances of fulfilled prophecy, and even as the New Testament is filled with such instances, rather than substituting the fruit of human genius (and even in accord with its manifestly elitist conception of Deity as a disembodied computer-type mind — but surely He came with the flesh of Heaven into this world which is His dream) for the supernatural? And the Scripture plainly rejects out of hand the claim of an innovator such as Muhammad to prophethood who does not even attempt to validate his mission through verifiable instances of fulfilled prophecy, saying in Deuteronomy 18:22, “In a case where the prophet speaks in the Name of the LORD, but his word does not occur, even come to pass, that is the word that the LORD has not spoken, but out of his arrogance has the prophet spoken it: have no fear of him.”
And note yet further in this regard the discipleship of Japheth to Shem foreshadowed in Genesis 9:18-27 and how Shem is called “the brother of Japheth the great” in 10:21, he to whom the prophet had guaranteed enlargement and even at the expense of Shem, and of whose seed the Scripture witnesses in 10:5, “From these will national settlement-enclaves separate themselves into countries of their own, each one according to its language, even according to their family groupings, to become nations in their own right,” and how it is therefore in gravity of character that these two are brothers — but the Synagogue of Satan is under the most bitter curse forever and its end is only physical extermination — and how an unparalleled vision appeared to Paul at the gateway to the all-Japhetic world bidding him to enter, as in Acts 16:6-10, and this after he had been forbidden by the Spirit of Jesus to preach the holy word in the bordering regions; and that it was at this time that the prophet Luke, the only non-Jewish New Testament writer, and as per Colossians 4:11 and 14, joined Paul’s entourage, even the beloved physician, as though he is a symbol of that prodigious vigor of intellect, mixed blessing as this is, of the European; and how all this manifestly foreshadows the passing of the Scripture of truth from the Middle East to the classical region of Christendom to such an extent that for many ages Christian and European were virtually synonymous terms and the Semitic world had become in a sense, and even as it remains to this very day, cut off; and see the westward trending of the journeys of Paul even within Europe as recorded in the Scripture and how he writes in Romans 15:24 and 28 of an intent to visit Spain, which is a manifest figure of the great expansion of Christendom beginning so many ages later here in this Western Hemisphere. And this process will continue until the people of all five continents and all islands of the two great world seas have been incorporated within the twelve tribes of the Israel of God, and as in accord with the symbolism displayed in the miracle of the five loaves and two fish and the twelve basketsfull remaining; and perhaps the seven other loaves that remained seven represent, and as discussed individually elsewhere, America, the Tahuantinsuyu, Germany, Ireland, Palestine, Biafra, and Japan.
