Isaiah 63: Big Brother

Babylon the Great of Revelation is the sixth head of the beast that rises out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns. This sixth head of this beast, and the ten horns, the Biblical nations of Israel in Genesis 49 [not to be confused with nation of Israel in the Middle East], are brothers according to the Biblical record. Their story goes back to the passing of the birthright in Genesis from Abraham to Isaac to our patriarch Jacob/Israel. The brother, who is the sixth head, felt cheated out of his heritage, the birthright, and its inheritance. And he made a prophetic vow to kill his brother. In Isaiah 63, Edom, who has grown into a host of people today, is expounding their side of the story as they explain it to God. They are pointing out why they, and not the nations of their brother Israel, should be the rightful heir to the inheritance. Our headlines are a direct reflection of Isaiah's prophecy being fulfillled, events that impact our lives, all the while edging us closer to the emergence of Babylon the Great. This article links the Biblical identity of Edom to names in the news.

Tail Wagging The Dog?

We hear the term anti-Semitic bantered around in the media quite often, especially in protest of the nation of Israel’s recent military actions against the Palestinians. But do you ever wonder what it means? Or do you just assume it refers only to the Jews? When someone has hostility towards the Jews, say as much as Jews have hostility towards the Arabs in Palestine, often they are accused of being “anti-Semitic.” This is somewhat ironic in that the Jews make up a small percentage of the total world population of those who are Semitic. In fact, the Palestinians themselves are Semitic peoples. And it wasn’t until 2005 that the Semitic Jewish population surpassed the Semitic Arab population in Israel/Palestine. [Semitic Population]
