The Fallacy Of Book Of Isaiah !!!



                                                             


1.Isaiah (770BC-?)
2.Cyrus (576 BC–530 BC)


The Jewish apologists would have us believe that Isaiah prophesied specifically that Cyrus would be Babylon's conqueror and would enter through gates, and that he made this prediction over 140 years before the event. What most people do not realize in reading Isaiah 44:28 is that  Cyrus  was not even born when this prophecy was made , there is a massive gap of 200 years between both . In reality, this section of Isaiah was written shortly before 537 BCE.

Yet Isaiah defying all the limitations , something no prophet has ever attempted ,would be indulging in such predictive predictions.Has this been so , I am pretty sure Isaiah would have even given us the name of Jesus with the same accuracy as he did of Cyrus.

Isaiah prophesied in the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah (1:1). His ministry thus occurred in the Period  ca. 740-701 B.C. This was some 150 years before Cyrus came to the throne!

I  have amply stated that Isaiah never fulfilled any prophecy like:
a) Isa 21: 2, 9
Go up, O Elam, and lay siege O Media...Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the images of her gods he has shattered to the ground."

Babylon's gods were not destroyed and tumbled to the ground and shattered by battle-crazed enemy warriors. Babylon peacefully surrendered in 539 BCE to Cyrus the Persian (not to a Median lead coalition, Cyrus having defeated and absorbed the Median empire ca. 560 BCE).

According to a clay cylinder called the Cyrus Cylinder, Cyrus made a great show of respecting and honoring Babylon's gods, even asking for their blessing on him and his son as the new rulers of Babylon. Marduk's hand was held by Cyrus and later his son as part of the swearing in ceremonies for Babylonian kings !

 In short we call these pseudo prophecies a phenomenon of “Prophecies of Retrodictioni.e prophecies were not written until after the occurrence of the events that they describe.

YHWH And The Failed Prophecy Of Jebus !!!


                                                                                                           


                                  YHWH And The Failed Prophecy Of Jebus


     In Joshua 3:10 the eponymous Jew is quoted as saying the following:
“Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.”
This is a repetition of a promise had from God's own lips in earlier books. And this is what actually happened:
“As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day. [Joshua 15:63]

The Serpent Chronicles-3

                                                                         

                                          Nachash And Nehebu-kau Connection

The word for "snake" in Hebrew is "Nachash", whose root has multiple definitions. One of Enki’s Sumerian epithets was BUZUR; it meant both "He who solves secrets" and "He of the mines," for the knowledge of mineralogy was considered knowledge of Earth’s secrets, the secrets of its dark depths.

Moses too fashioned Nahash Nehoshet(Copper Serpent) to stop the epidemic that was afflicting the Israelites during the Exodus; and our analysis leaves no doubt that by that he intended to summon divine intervention of G-d Enki , as it was an emblem of Enki.
The combination of biology with mineralogy and with the ability to solve secrets reflected Enki’s status as the God of knowledge and sciences, of the Earth’s hidden metals; he was the one who set up the mining operations in southeastern Africa.

A passage in II Kings 18:4 reveals that this copper serpent, had been kept in the Temple of Yahweh in Jerusalem for almost 700 years uninterrupted , until the time of King Hezekiah. Coincidence?

Have you ever wondered why did an almighty YHWH needed to resort to an idol of serpent to heal the wandering Hebrews? Why he could’nt  just heal them with mere click of fingers. I am sure an almight G-d who can split Red sea into two for crossing , such a feat is mere child’s play.  

I have asked this question  trillion times and no one gives any answer seems to know, guess they don’t teach critical thinking in Synagogues. I deeply fear that there are some other reasons too that need to be taken into consideration. I feel that the instincts for ruthless pursuit of nothing but the truth ,an unbiased mind , piercing discrimination , evidence gathering- scenario envisioning wit , analytical mind and many such qualities which  are simply  beyond the scope of organized religions who are just happy with their sheep followers. They don’t possess adequate research and penetrating insight to solve the hidden enigmas via independent scrutiny and investigation. Their only estasy lies  in maintainance & continued upwards congregational demographics

Nehebu-kau is Egyptian Serpent Diety. In early depictions, he is fully serpentine, while later on he appears with a human body and a snake head. One version has him as  son of Selkis (Serket), a scorpion goddess, which emphasizes his later role of restoring the  health of those who have been bitten by scorpions and other venomous creatures.  However  another version renders him as son of Geb and the snake goddess Renenutet.  Perhaps this is  the earlier one, for he would have inherited the nourishing aspects of his mother, who was known as “She who nourishes”.

He’s a powerful G-d, not subject to magic, nor can he be harmed by water or fire. That precisely the reason why our Fictitious YHWH needed to first of all send a entirely imaginative serpent who is fiery in nature straight out of Marvel Comic Books
J and later create a scenario with equally fictitious figure (Read: Moses) to invoke the presence of Nehebu-kau.When the  reciter of the Book of the Dead spell declares, “I pass eternity like Nehebu-kau”, no doubt he is referring to his eternal invulnerable nature.
Nehebu-kau is known for the ‘seven  cobras’  he swallowed, another plagiaristic attempt of Hebrews of how Moses ‘s Stick turned snake swallowed Pharoah’s snakes.  Jeremy Naydler in "Temple of the Cosmos" also gives him title "Provider of  Life-Energies" (page 36).

YHWH & The Failed Prophecy Of Babylon !!!

Famous Firdos Square In Iraq
                                                         


        “Babylon…shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make a fold there. But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there;…and satyrs shall dance there…and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.”   - Isaiah 13:19-22, Jeremiah 50:39-40.
         Obviously, there has never been a time since Isaiah that Babylon (modern Iraq) was uninhabited. People lived there during New Testament times according to Matthew 1:11-12, 17, Acts 7:43, and I Peter 5:13; and it is still inhabited today. Arabians still visit there, shepherds still make their folds there, and Iraq has never been known for its dancing satyrs.

1.Isaiah noted that Babylon would be destroyed by God. He would cause the Medes to lead a coalition of nations against the city, destroying it in bloody warfare. This event would secure the release of God's people from their oppressors (Isa 13:1-22; 14:22).

2. Isaiah's staement, "Its time is close at hand and its days will not be prolonged," suggests that he was not envisioning a slow economic decline of Babylon beginning ca. 305 BCE under the Seleucids and extending to the 1st century CE, when the last cuneiform clay tablets were composed honoring the city's gods.

3. Isaiah understood that upon Babylon's destruction by God, that his people would be freed from their Babylonian oppressor and that Israel would would "take captive their captors." Israel/Judah NEVER took "captive" the Babylonians, even after their release from the Babylonian Captivity by Cyrus in 539 BCE.

4. Isa 21: 2, 9
Go up, O Elam, and lay siege O Media...Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the images of her gods he has shattered to the ground."
Babylon's gods were not destroyed and tumbled to the ground and shattered by battle-crazed enemy warriors. Babylon peacefully surrendered in 539 BCE to Cyrus the Persian (not to a Median lead coalition, Cyrus having defeated and absorbed the Median empire ca. 560 BCE).

According to a clay cylinder narrating the fall of the city (called the Cyrus Cylinder), Cyrus made a great show of respecting and honoring Babylon's gods, even asking for their blessing on him and his son as the new rulers of Babylon. Marduk's hand was held by Cyrus and later his son as part of the swearing in ceremonies for Babylonian kings !

Isa 43:14, 47:1-15

"
For your sake I will send to Babylon and break down all the bars, and the shouting of the Chaldeans will be turned into lamentations."
No gate bars were broken down by Cyrus. The gates were opened in peace, welcoming him as a saviour. There were no lamentations over dead Babylonian warriors within the city or widows and slain children.

"The Nabonidus Chronicle confirms that Ugbaru (Gubaru) and his troops entered Babylon without a battle on October 12th. Cyrus himself did not enter the city until October 29th. The inhabitants of Babylon greeted Cyrus not as a conqueror but as a liberator, and spread green branches before him." (p.87, Yamauchi)

Isa 47:1-11
"Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans !...I will take vengenace, and I will spare no man. Our Redeemer -the Lord of Hosts is his name-...you shall no more be called mistress of kingdoms...These two things shall come to you in a moment, in one day; the loss of children and widowhood shall come upon you in full measure...disaster shall fall upon you...and ruin shall come on you suddenly..."


Isaiah appears to be saying that IN ONE DAY -in a moment- disaster will strike the city, she shall be in ruin. This prophecy was unfulfilled. Babylon did not experience "disaster," i.e., slain residents, breached walls, broken-in gates, houses on fire by looting enemy warriors.
