Listener Q + A
On one of your radio broadcasts, you mentioned something about a
monolithic site (huge stones of some sort ??) what is the correct name of
the site and can you give me a web address that gives information about
Baalbek Trilithon Megalith
Thanks for your question about the Baalbek
Trilithon Megalith. These links will get you started on an amazing
What do you think of Abraham as being from
India? India's heritage and culture are much, much older than either
Judaism or Christianity or Islam, so it makes some sense that a
Brahman's emigration from India (Brahma-Abraham) took place ... the
entire Bible story originating from the distortions of history,
watered down at best.
Thanks for writing with your question.
You asked me what I think, so I'm going to tell you exactly what I
The speculation that Abram was from India has no confirmation from
any source. On the other hand, Genesis (11:26-32) and a number of
other ancient sources all tell us that Abraham was a native of "Ur
of the Chaldees" which was located in ancient Sumerian Mesopotamia
in the Fertile Crescent. Samaria is often called the "cradle of
civilization" since it produced the first cities and the first
writing - predating Egypt, India or any other postdiluvian culture.
The section of Genesis that reports on Abram's father Terah and his
family, beginning with the word's "Now this is the history of the
generations of Terah" is an original family history from the
time period and location on which it is reporting, that is, from "Ur
of the Chaldees" of Abraham's day. Nothing could be more
authoritative than this as to Abraham's family origins. (Gen 11:27)
Gill's commentary sums up some of the other ancient documentation
regarding Abram's origins:
[Haran, Abram's brother died] in the land of his nativity, in Ur of
the Chaldees; Ur, which Ben Melech renders a valley, was the place
of his birth, as it was of Abram's; it was in Mesopotamia, that part
of it next to Assyria being called the land of the Chaldeans; hence
these are spoken of as the same by Stephen, Act_7:2 mention is made
by Pliny (b), of a place in those parts called Ura, which seems to
be the same with this: Eupolemus (c) says,"that Abram was born at
Camarine, a city of Babylon, some call Urie, and is interpreted a
city of the Chaldeans;''now Camarine is from "Camar", to heat
or burn, and Ur signifies fire, so that both words are of the same
signification: Josephus (d) says, that Haran died among the
Chaldeans, in a city called Ur of the Chaldees, where, he adds, his
grave is shown to this day.." (b) Nat. Hist. l. 5. c. 24. (c) Apud
Euseb. Praepar. Evangel. l. 9. c. 17. p. 418. (d) Antiqu. l. 1. c.
6. sect. 5. (e) Shalshalet, fol. 2. 1, 2. Jarchi in loc.
I will excuse your dismissive assumptions regarding the Bible on the
grounds that you obviously haven't really studied it. As one who has
devoted a life-time to the study of Scripture I will tell you this:
The Scriptures contain solid historical truth that can be entirely
relied upon. This is true regarding Abraham, and everything else the
Scriptures talk about. This has been superabundantly proven and
continues to be proven daily. Those who do not hold a careful and
complete study of Scripture as their primary intellectual foundation
(against which they test all other knowledge) remain fundamentally
uneducated, and therefore ignorant, no matter what else they think
The Bible is the truth. Ignore or minimize it at your own peril.
- The Big Picture DVD
Just finished watching "The Big Picture" - and I
love it. It is just what I need in order to put things together. I
say, "need," as I am not at the point where I have it down pat, and
I really need to read the WORD, study what you have said, and
ruminate on it. I love the art work you use on the video. It adds a
dimension to it as you take in what is being said. You and Dawn both
have a daunting task before you, and certainly need all of our
prayers, as well as us spreading the word, but GOD never starts
something HE is not able to finish, and HE uses us to do the task.
I told my family they have to sit and listen to it with notebook in
hand, and not allow anything to disturb them - really take in the
message. I believe this is the only way people will begin to
understand what is being said. I doubt very much if I would have
been open to this message 20 or 30 yrs. ago. If the LORD hadn't
already showed me, from HIS WORD, "Who Is A Jew" and how that all
goes together, I doubt very much that I would have understood it
then. We just have to be prepared by our LIVING GOD. HE never fails,
and HIS timing is essential.
Thank you so much for being there when HE called you to take on
this great task, and saying, "Yes" to HIM. Our family will certainly
be praying for you, Dawn and your family.
During the coming decade science fiction will
rapidly become science fact, as a giant globalist COMMERCIAL
spacewave takes mankind to the edge of the final frontier - into
Obamaspace. Globalist Space Corporations are the next big thing.
All of this is already underway and will rapidly move mankind
toward the final conflict.
Blessings and Shalom,
