Listener Q + A
- embarrassing heading?
Are you aware that an embarrassing heading [in Google search results] is on
a website of yours out there?
- embarrassing heading
So far as we know, this is
hacked into our search results and is not actually in our website at all. We
have checked and these words are nowhere in our site. Someone has made this
happen in a way that we don't understand and don't know how to get rid of.
- Google search results?
Shalom Eliyahu and Dawn, Thought you might want to see what I came across
when doing a Google search for "messianic blog". "Men's Health: #####! ...

- Google search results
Thanks for emailing us
about our Google search results. We are aware of this and have scoured our
site for a source of this abomination. This "Men's Health" add does not
originate at our website. It's presence in our Google search results is
clearly an attempt to torpedo us by somebody, maybe even Google themselves.
At this point we don't know exactly who is responsible for this. This is
just more of the same battle we are fighting here every day to get out the
- preferred version?
This is something that has been on my mind for many years and in your last
broadcast you mentioned a few versions of the Bible and some problems you
found with the translations. Do you have a preferred version?
- preferred version
Thanks for your question. I've not yet found a single
translation that I feel I can rely upon. All translations seem to have their
strengths and weaknesses. In my study I use e-sword a lot, with multiple
Bibles and Bible study helps and constantly compare to the original
languages. If you don't have e-sword you can get it free here:
- 5500 year old calendar?
I was doing some study on the Ruach ha Kodesh and came upon a
website who claims they have a 5500 year old calendar. Unfortunately they
reject the lunar calendar. I was wondering if you would mind taking a quick
look at the page..
- 5500 year old calendar
The calendar advocated at the website link you forwarded is
their interpretation of, their translation of, Enoch Chapter 72. Since
Enoch, the purported writer of this book, lived before the Flood they claim
this calendar to be 5500 years old. While there are problems with that
claim, let's test its implications at face value.
According to the widely accepted chronology of James Ussher the Exodus from
Egypt occurred in 1491 BC. This date is not universally accepted and is held
by some to be as much as two centuries off. For our purposes this debate
doesn't matter, because, in any event, the Exodus from Egypt occurred
roughly 2,000 years AFTER the alleged Enoch calendar.
Why is this important?
It is important because, Israel has its own calendar, given to
Israel at the time of the Exodus, and all of the Appointments of YHWH given
to Israel in the Torah are set according to THAT calendar. Therefore, EVEN
IF there were a different calendar of Enoch, that calendar IS NOT the
calendar Israel was to use in keeping the appointments. Israel must follow
the Torah! (Ex 12:2, Deut 16:1)
The calendar given to Israel is the one explained in my book,
This is the calendar Israel is to follow in keeping Yah's appointments.
While I have not researched this particular group in depth, there are a
number of warning signs that scream out at me immediately. The first is the
use of "code" language for ordinary words. There is no good reason why the
concepts being conveyed cannot be conveyed in plain English for English
speakers. Instead, the language is intentionally cryptic and technical. This
is a tactic some groups use like a smokescreen to cover over what would
otherwise be recognized as clear fallacies of fact and logic. The word SCAM
comes to mind.
Our last program on "The Restrainer" got a lot of
positive feedback from you, our listeners. I was so blessed to see
that, because I broke all the "radio rules" to bring that program to
you. Conventional radio wisdom is that radio hosts are not supposed
to read more than a few words at a time - certainly never a whole
chapter from the Bible in one reading, like we did. Also,
definitions and explanations of Greek and Hebrew words are to be
avoided on the air at all costs - that's just way too mind-numbing
for most people to follow. "Most people" maybe, but not our
listeners! And finally, NEVER publicly kick the foundation out from
under a beloved sacred cow on the air - like say, the pre-trib
rapture theory - or you will lose your audience. Again, that applies
to "most people" but not our audience! What blessed me about
your positive response to "The Restrainer" is what it says about
you, listeners of On the Road to Tsiyon. You really are
Encouraged by your warm response to our last program,
I was all set in my mind where the program would go next - then I
got an email from Aunt Susan about the latest machinations of the
Vatican. As I looked into this more deeply I was amazed to see how
these very events are a perfect example of exactly what we are
discussing in 2 Thessalonians 2! I know you will be informed, amazed
and horrified by the blasphemous words emanating from Vatican
spokesmen just last week. Not only will you learn about that on this
latest program, but much more importantly, you will learn about the
plot that is behind it and how all of that figures into Scripture
Blessings and Shalom,
Eliyahu ben David
