MELCHIZEDEK, MICHAEL, AND WAR IN HEAVEN
James R. Davila
After surveying the surviving accounts of the eschatological battle between the forces of good and evil involving the warrior angel Michael or Melchizedek, I have proposed a reconstruction of the branching trajectories of the myth. I trace the origins of the story back to Canaanite and Israelite traditions about the conquest of Leviathan and the revolt of an astral deity and suggest that Michael was the first angelic protagonist to replace Yahweh in both myths, with Melchizedek--the divinized priestly figure--in turn replacing him in some versions. Eventually Jesus Christ, Gabriel, and the attending angels were absorbed into some reflexes of the story. The antagonists included Leviathan, the dragon (combined with the serpent and Satan), Belial, and the archons of Gnostic mythology.
1996 May 18 – Lead My Children Out Of The Darkness
I had asked the Lord if he wanted me to homeschool my children in September of 1996 and he answered with a very vivid dream of being with Moses as he led the children of Israel out of Egypt. A man’s voice told me, “Kathy, lead my children out of the darkness”.
preparing the way for the Lord and I, Jesus am coming to live with you. I am bringing your father with me to make a
very special celebration for America as the birthright holder of the Tribe of
Joseph/Ephraim and referred to in the bible as the Northern Kingdom of divided Israel.
You were born early on Coronation Day for
Queen Elizabeth a descendant of Judah who has held the scepter until the coming
of Shiloh (Jesus) and who was crowned upon the coronation Stone of Scone, the
very rock upon which Jacob laid his head at Bethel when he wrestled with Penuel
the angel who renamed him Israel. Bethel means House of God and it was upon
this rock that God would build his house.
Your sister Linda
was born on December 25, the day of Mary's immaculate conception in Nazareth
and your younger sister Leslie was born on September 9 the corresponding day in
Elul in 2 BC in Bethlehem. Your brother was born on December 4 the first day of
the Advent Season which marks the events of the first and second coming of
Jesus of Nazareth.
As a double witness
to your special calling I gave you four children as I did for your parents.
Thirty years after your birth I gave you three girls in a row and thirty years
after your brother's birth I gave you a son, all four of whom have received Jesus.
I have encapsulated this to show my intent to the world, that this was not random happenstance. I AM the Lord your God and I am coming to live with my people."
From the moment I knew that Jesus was my Lord and Savior, I have been a witness to Christ as my knowledge and understanding of God has grown from miniscule beginnings to into a mighty tree of depth and breadth of awareness of the awesome nature of his being from before Jesus was born as a man through all his incredible achievements up to and including this present day. I have never for one moment doubted my faith in him and Jehovah and I have quietly and privately many times been a witness as I have recorded my own path to understanding and especially the interactive part Father and Son have played throughout my life and ultimately to my destiny. The major part in the earthly realm of my witness has been to discover and discern the true identity of America as the descendants of the tribe of Ephraim, the holder of the birthright which is the dominion of earth to be headed by Jesus as King of kings, as well as the reality that Father prophesied a reunification of the twelve tribes of Israel as represented by the southern kingdom of Judah and the northern kingdom of Ephraim. This carnal marriage was to be a precursor of the establishment of the Stone Kingdom as prophesied in the Book of Daniel. I am witness to this reunification as well as the kingship of Jesus.
"Deconstructionism - is it a valid way to interpret the Bible?"
Answer: Deconstructionism is basically a theory
of textual criticism or interpretation that denies there is any single correct
meaning or interpretation of a passage or text. At the heart of the
deconstructionist theory of interpretation are two primary ideas. First is the
idea that no passage or text can possibly convey a single reliable, consistent,
and coherent message to everyone who reads or hears it. The second is that the
author who wrote the text is less responsible for the piece's content than are
the impersonal forces of culture such as language and the author’s unconscious
ideology. Therefore the very basic tenets of deconstructionism are contrary to
the clear teaching of the Bible that absolute truth does exist and we can
indeed know it (Deuteronomy
32:4; Isaiah 65:16; John 1:17–18; John 14:6; John 15:26–27; Galatians 2:5).
deconstructionist approach to interpreting the Bible comes out of postmodernism
and is therefore simply another denial of the existence of absolute truth,
which is one of the most serious logical fallacies anyone can commit. The
denial of absolute truth is a logical fallacy because it is a
self-contradictory statement. No one can rationally deny absolute truth because
to do so one is forced to state an absolute—which is what he is saying does not
exist. When someone claims that there is no such thing as absolute truth, ask
him, “Are you absolutely sure of that?” If he says, “Yes,” then he has made a
statement contradictory to his very premise.
philosophies that come out of the postmodernism, deconstructionism celebrates
human autonomy and determines truth by the intellect of man. Therefore,
according to the postmodern thinker, all truth is relative and there is no such
thing as absolute truth. At the heart of postmodernism and deconstructionist
thought is pride. The deconstructionist thinks that he can discover a personal
or social motivation behind what Scripture says and therefore can determine
what is “really being said.” The result is a subjective interpretation of the
passage in question. Instead of accepting what the Bible actually says, the
deconstructionist is arrogant enough to think he can determine the motive
behind what was written and come up with the “real” or “hidden” meaning of the
text. However, if one were to take deconstructionism to its logical conclusion,
then the findings of the deconstructionist would themselves have to be
deconstructed to determine what the deconstructionist “really” said. The
endless circular reasoning is self-defeating. When one thinks about how
fundamentally flawed this type of thinking is, one is reminded of 1 Corinthians 3:19, “For
the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, ‘He is
the one who catches the wise in their craftiness.’”
deconstructionist does not study the Bible in order to find out the meaning
intended by the writer but to attempt to discern the cultural and social
motives behind what was written. The deconstructionist is only limited in his
interpretation of a passage by his own imagination. To the deconstructionist
there is no right or wrong interpretation, and the meaning of the text becomes
whatever the reader wants it to be. One might imagine what would happen if
legal documents such as wills and deeds were read this way. This approach to
Scripture fails to recognize the fundamental truth that the Bible is God’s
objective communication to mankind and that the meaning of the passages comes
Instead of spending
time debating deconstructionism or other postmodern theories, we should
concentrate on exalting Christ and emphasizing the sufficiency and authority of
the Scriptures. Romans
1:21–22 sums up most postmodern thinkers who hold to such theories as
deconstructionism: “For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as
God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their
foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.”

Gemini [Kathy] and Libra [Jesus]
Simeon rules Gemini and Levi rules Libra as brothers in violence. Both constellations symbolize the number two. The Gemini are brothers [Jacob and Esau] and Libra the scale for settling debts [Jesus the Messiah].
That they "hamstring oxen" can be seen when the sun rises into Gemini, making the stars of Taurus appear to descend as if hamstrung. In the zodiac circle, Gemini lies above and next to Taurus, and Libra is opposite Taurus. Astronomically, when the sun ascends into Gemini, Taurus falls away from the sun. And when the sun enters Libra, Taurus is in full descent.
Jacob says he will divide and scatter the brothers in Israel, which means the two constellations are not in juxtaposition; one is next to Taurus and the other is opposite Taurus.
and Levi are brothers; weapons of violence are their swords.
6O my soul, come not into their council; O my spirit, be not joined to their company; for in their anger they slay men, and in their wantonness they hamstring oxen.
7Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; and their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel. (Gen. 49:5-7)
As slayers of men, Gemini includes two bright stars called the twins. In ancient mythology, the Gemini twins were warlike heroes who avenged the kidnapping of their sister Helen to Troy.
In Genesis 34, their sister Dinah was raped by Schecham the son of Hamor the Hivite. Simeon and Levi took revenge by murdering the father, son and all the males of the city. Not content to stop there, they plundered the city.
the third day, when they were sore, two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and
Levi, Dinah's brothers, took their swords and came upon the city
unawares, and killed all the males.
26They slew Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went away.
27And the sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled; (Gen. 34:25-27)
