Learning More About the Two Witnesses
With everything we have discovered about the Two Witnesses in this Bible Code, we began to realize that we still did not know the story this Bible Code was trying to tell us. Sometimes, in our search for truth, we try to force the Bible Codes to tell us what we want to believe. Other times, we hope the Bible Codes will vindicate our favorite doctrines. We have seen in other cases that what we think the Bible teaches is not what it teaches at all. The Two Witnesses doctrine is one of those cases. Instead, we have found them to be two men who were alive and witnessed the death and resurrection of Yahushua Ha'Messiach (Jesus Christ), but who are still living today. We know their names: Lazarus and Joseph of Arimathaea. What we don't know, for the most part, is who they were throughout the centuries.
We asked Olaf Hage (before he died on October 21, 2016), a Christian historical researcher from Maine and author of an upcoming book Paradise Found, to offer comments on this Bible Code. His recent research has discovered that Lazarus and Joseph have appeared in history in many disguises. To learn more about his research on this subject, check out his website. You can subscribe to his research reports by sending an email. One of the facts you will learn from his research is how many times the Two Witnesses have saved our world from the brink of disaster. When we considered what Mr. Hage has taught us and applied it to our Bible Code, we begin to realize that there is more to this code than we first realized.
When we discussed the early results of this code, Mr. Hage suggested we see if there were any Marian Apparitions connected with this code. He pointed out that 2017 would be the 100th anniversary of the Marian Apparitions at Fatima, Portugal. He further thought that at least one of The Two Witnesses might be there to counteract what the Marian Apparitions might be doing. When we ran a time-stamp date on this code, we indeed got 2017. However, when we ran Fatima in the code, we struck out. We did however, get a very connected Mary in this code, so we realized this was referring to some kind of a Marian Apparition. To get a further idea of what we were dealing with, we ran a 2015 time-stamp and got another hit. Beyond this, what we got was a total surprise.
The History of Alqosh, Iraq
The real shock came when we discovered where the Marian Apparitions were taking place: Alqosh, Iraq. It is a very interesting city from a biblical standpoint as it is the home of the prophet Nahum.
The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite. (Nahum 1:1 KJV)
History records this small city as containing one of the palatial homes of famous Assyrian King Sennacherib, the attempted conqueror of the Southern Kingdom of Israel or Judah (II Kings 19:16-36, II Chronicles 32:1-22, Isaiah 37:17-37). This king unfortunately, had the misfortune of encountering one of the great kings of Judah: Hezekiah. King Hezekiah was very faithful to YHWH and served Him all his days. His faithfulness, the faithfulness of his country, and their trust in YHWH saved them from being cruelly conquered and scattered throughout the earth like what the Assyrians did to the Northern Kingdom of Israel, just a generation before. To defend Judah from the Assyrian siege, King Hezekiah's engineers developed a water system to keep the city's residents hydrated and to improve sanitary conditions. Even with the engineering marvels, King Hezekiah still called upon the YHWH to protect them. YHWH responded by sending his angel to smote the Assyrian army. The Assyrians lost 286,000 troops in one day. With the loss of his massive army, King Sennacherib was obliged to return to Nineveh where he was slain by his own sons:
And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead. (II Kings 19:37 KJV)
And YHWH sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his elohim, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword. Thus YHWH saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all other, and guided them on every side. (II Chronicles 32:21-22 KJV)
And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead. (Isaiah 37:38 KJV)
The story of Alqosh does not end with the fall of the Assyrian empire even though the Bible never mentions the city again. In the fifth century, the area was a center for the Nestorian faith. This is notable by the existence of the Rabban Hermizd Monastery, which the Nestorians built in A.D. 640. The monastery is notable, even today for its collection of Aramaic manuscripts of the Bible and the epistles of other eastern church fathers. Many of these manuscripts have never been translated into English. As a result, most historical scholars have no idea of the real Christian history of this region.
Even though the monastery is now under the leadership of the Chaldean Catholic Church, it still stands as a bulwark against the Sunni Islamic terrorist group: Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or ISIS/ISIL. Interestingly enough, they are mentioned in this Bible Code. Various news reports tell of ISIL's attempts to capture the city in 2014 and turn it into yet another Islamic center. It seems that the Two Witnesses are again party to saving a biblical landmark from falling into the hands of ISIS/ISIL. When most of the people abandoned the city in the face of an ISIS/ISIL attack, a group of men and boys successfully defended the city. Even though Alqosh, Iraq is only 50 miles from ISIS/ISIL's capital of Mosul, Iraq, they have failed in all their attempts to take the city. Even now, most of the residents have returned to Alqosh and many Christian refugees have made a home there.
The Marian Apparitions of Alqosh, Iraq
On January 22, 2015, an information board called The Assyrian Voice reported that in the area of Alqosh and Nineveh, people were seeing what some claim was a Marian Apparition. These claims were addressed by L.A. Marzulli on his website on May 13, 2015. Citing an article on an unofficial Roman Catholic website: Unveiling the Apocalypse, Mr. Marzulli took issue with the validity of these apparitions (as we do as well). When we showed a preliminary rendition of this code to Olaf Hage, he suggested we look for the demon god Lilith in this code. When we ran the word, it indeed appeared in the Bible Code. He explained that much of the Mariolatry we see in the Roman Catholic Church today comes from the work of demon god Lilith. This demon is found in only one place in the scriptures: Isaiah 34:14, but there, it was questionably translated "screech owl."
Mr. Hage also pointed out that an estimated 20,000 apparitions of the Virgin Mary we have seen since the first century (when the first one occurred at Saragossa, Spain in A.D. 40 and was witnessed by James the Elder, one of the twelve apostles). Mr. Hage further explains that the apparitions always demand that a shrine be built to it on the site (at considerable cost to the local people) and that they worship the ground where the apparition appeared. The most famous examples of Marian Apparitions are the ones at Fatima, Portugal and Lourdes, France but there are thousands of other Marian shrines around the world. In the Middle East, the most famous Marian Apparitions were at Zeitoun, Egypt in 1968-1971 and at Warraq al-Hadar, Giza, Egypt on December 11, 2009. That changed on January 21, 2015 when people started seeing a Marian Apparition in Algosh, Iraq. The spec in the middle is supposedly the Virgin Mary. A closeup of the middle shot in this picture gives you this picture shown to the right. Some people claim the image is of the Virgin Mary at Alqosh, Iraq. The Roman Catholic Church has yet to comment on the visions.
The Two Witnesses vs. the Demon God Lilith vs. Cain (Allah)
As we examine the code and the information contained herein, we begin to realize that a three-way war is erupting between Lilith (via the Marian Apparition), Cain (via ISIS/ISIL), and the Two Witnesses (representing the Christians of Alqosh). The stake is the Rabban Hermizd Monastery and its treasure trove of manuscripts and artifacts. The code is not clear as to whether the Two Witnesses intend to move the manuscripts and artifacts in the monastery to a safer, more secure place, or whether they intend to stay there and ensure the safety of Alqosh. Major Tom Baird (ret.) wrote a book titledThe Copper Scroll Incident that suggests they are covertly moving artifacts out of that region right now. His second book will give us even more information about this smuggling operation. What we do know is that eventually, when they make their claims to the world, they will have to present documentary evidence to prove their validity as witnesses of the death and resurrection of Yahushua Ha'Messiach. We see this in the book of Revelation Chapter 11:
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. (Revelation 11:3-6 KJV, Emphasis ours)
When you read of the power the Two Witnesses posses, it would not be a problem for them to repel conventional attacks from ISIS/ISIL. The ISIL leaders will have to call upon Cain (they call him Allah, the "moon god") to assist them with their new attacks. The Marian Apparition also gives the Two Witnesses another problem. Likely some form of UFO (Unidentified Flying Object), Lilith would also like to get its hands on the manuscripts and artifacts of Alqosh. Since we see the year 2017 in this Bible Code, we know this battle will be very drawn out.
The Miracle of Alqosh
The Bible Code tells a story that no major media outlet wants to tell. We have a small but ancient city named Alqosh in the fractured country of Iraq. Located just 50 miles from the capital of the terrorist group ISIS/ISIL, every military analyst would suggest that Alqosh should be totally in the terrorist group's hands. When they attacked Alqosh in 2014, the media reports suggest that a few men and boys bearing small arms repelled their attacks. The Bible Code suggests that they had help. It seems that Joseph and Lazarus used their own firepower to help repel ISIS/ISIL. The code also indicates that ISIS/ISIL is not going away anytime soon (Even though the Russian did serious damage to the group in the past few years). The code says these events will continue into 2017, as the demon god Osiris (Cain) wants the treasures in the city's monastery.
The situation gets more complicated on January 21, 2015 when Marian Apparitions start lighting the skies over Alqosh. The Code indicates that the Marian Apparitions are the work of the demon-god Lilith, who would also like to have the artifacts contained in the city's monastery. We have seen strong correlations between the Marian Apparitions at places like Fatima, Portugal and what we are seeing here. It is clear that both demonic forces want what is in the monastery.
That is why the Two Witnesses are there... the monastery contains important artifacts and manuscripts that they will need when they actually appear on the world scene in Jerusalem and start their 1,260 day prophetic trek. People are not going to believe they witnessed the death and resurrection of Yahushua Ha'Messiach unless they can come up with documentary proof to back up their statements. The demon gods Lilith and Osiris/Cain would like to make sure the Two Witnesses do not get this documentary evidence. It should go without saying that Joseph and Lazarus need our prayers. They are the biggest event of the end times and they will have to fight the Terrible Beast System directly.
UPDATE April 14, 2019: The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS/ISIL) has now collapsed and Kurdistan now controls Alqosh. Since they have taken control, they are rebuilding the city's infrastructure and have started maintianing some kind of order. We have found a Twitter Page that keeps track of news in the region. We will always wonder if the Two Witnesses had some part in the destruction of ISIL.
