"Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for your salvation, O Lord." Genesis 49:16-18.

 

Striking Distance

L.C. Thomas

        I received an E-mail sometime back asking me if I thought that the Antichrist would come from the lost tribe of Dan. Since that time I've wanted to do this article, and although I believe that he will come from the same region where the lost tribe now resides, his family tree is connected to the tribe of Judah instead. Jeremiah 8:16, contrary to popular belief, does not say that the Antichrist was born a member of the tribe of Dan, it merely states that the snorting of his horses was heard from Dan

        According to the prophecy given to him by his father Jacob in Genesis 49:16-18 above, Dan is destined to play a very unique part in the last days, because out the twelve tribes of Israel he is the only one waiting on the salvation of the Lord at the time of the end. And Jacob called to his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days, Genesis 49:2. Many experts believe Jacob was telling Dan that he was cursed by depicting him as a serpent, but in my opinion his father was telling him just the opposite. By the time appointed the lost tribe of Dan will be blessed above all the other tribes of his brothers, and all you have to do to verify this is read what is said in the book of Revelation.

        The horseman that the tribe of Dan will cause to fall backward in the last days is described in Revelation 6:2. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The bow carried by this rider ties him to Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Genesis 10:9-10. The Bible says that Babel was located in the land of Shinar or the land of Sun worship, which was ancient Egypt (not Babylon as most believe) because Genesis 11:2 says that Nimrod and company left their home in the east (Babylon) and traveled west to the land of Shinar (Egypt) and dwelt there

        Egypt is the key that unlocks the mystery of the last days because it is where Joseph (the favorite son of Jacob) wound up after being sold into slavery by the other founding members of the twelve tribes of Israel, his brothers. Joseph took a wife and had two sons while living in Egypt, Manasseh (the oldest) and Ephraim. In Genesis 48:1 Joseph is informed that his father Jacob is on his death bed so he took his two sons and went to see him. During this visit, before Jacob blessed his twelve sons, he blessed the sons of Joseph giving him one portion above his brothers in Genesis 48:14-22. A clue to the significance of this portion is given in Genesis 48:19. And his father refused, (to put the favored blessing of his right hand on Manasseh) and said, I know (he is the oldest) my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations. 

        The full meaning of this verse was not given until several thousand years later when the book of Revelation was written, and even then the meaning remained hidden because many scholars believe that the name of Dan was omitted from the hundred and forty and four thousand in Revelation chapter seven because the tribe began to follow Satan. In my opinion Dan is no more guilty of following Satan than any of the other tribes of Israel, because Ephraim is not mentioned in Revelation with the other tribes either, even though 12 thousand from the tribe of his less favored brother were sealed along with the others. So if you believe that Dan fell from favor with the Lord, then you must believe that Ephraim did so as well, and in both cases Jacob foretold the exact opposite. Unless you are willing to say that God will renege on the covenant made with Jacob through his forefathers, then you must concede that the seed of Ephraim is still destined to become a multitude of nations favored over the tribe of his older brother Manasseh, and Dan will be waiting on the salvation of the Lord by the end of the last days.

        Jeremiah the prophet tells us that the tribes of Ephraim and Dan were not mentioned with the others in Revelation 7:1-8 because they were busy doing the work of the Lord in the last days, and because of this (in Revelation 7:9-14) they stood before the throne as a group separate from the other tribes. For a voice declares from Dan, and publishes affliction from mount Ephraim. Make you mention to the nations; (the other tribes) behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah, Jeremiah 4:15-16. 

        The prophets of the Old Testament, such as Jeremiah and Ezekiel, were referred to by God as watchers and they were always chosen from among the seed of Israel. Since these watchers come from a far country I think it's safe to assume that they are of Jewish descent, but give out their voice from somewhere outside the nation of Israel, because the prophecy given by Jacob to Judah was as follows. The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh (Jesus) come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his clothes in the blood of grapes: His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk, Genesis 49:10-12. 

        You must remember what I said in a previous article about Satan knowing what is in the Bible better than anyone on the planet. Jacob's prophecy in Genesis 49:10-12 is foretelling why Satan will choose to insert his seed into the tribe of Judah before the last days. Jesus is referred to in the Bible as the Lion of Judah and this fact is key in knowing which tribe the Antichrist will rise from because in Judges 14:1-9 Samson kills a young lion by the vineyards of Timnath. He returns to the carcass of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass. The bees are important because they symbolize the devils of Egypt, which by the time of the end will have taken up residence in the body of the Lion of Judah, or the covenant that was established and left behind by Jesus. 

        Since the tribe of Judah will control the land of Israel in the last days (the land of milk and honey) they will be the target of the Antichrist's seduction. After bellying up to the bar with the son of the Devil their judgment will become clouded and the mistake I wrote about in Israel Be Warned will be made, because according to the prophecy of Jacob, the descendants of Judah are found with eyes red from drinking the wine of the Mother of Harlots from Revelation 17:1-6 in the last days

        This is why Revelation 7:9-14 says; After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, of all nations, and kindreds, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and with palms in their hands...And I said to him, (the angel next to me) Sir, you know (who these people are). And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Judah's clothes were washed in the blood of grapes tying him to the bees of an altered and worthless covenant. 

       The meaning of the verses we've covered so far becomes quite clear when they are looked at in their proper context. After 144,000 souls are sealed from what most scholars believe to be the twelve tribes of Israel, a great multitude from the lost tribe of Dan along with the descendants of Ephraim (the youngest son of Joseph) will be gathered up separately for standing fast in the word of the Lord at the time of the end. 

        The extra portion that was given to Joseph at the time of his fathers death was another tribe descended from his two sons. The name of Manasseh listed in Revelation 7:6 was mistaken for a full tribe, because Manasseh and Ephraim were considered to be only half tribes, making up a thirteenth or extra portion. The 144,000 gathered from the tribes listed in Revelation 7:1-8 come from only eleven and a half of the total number of tribes. Members from the other tribe and a half are not mentioned until verses 9-14.

        The far country made up of all nations, and kindreds, and peoples, and tongues is the United States for two reasons. First, Jeremiah 4:15-16 states that Dan is now living on mount Ephraim or one of the seven mountains discussed in Time Lock. Since Israel sits at the crossroads of world commerce between the three mountains or continents that were known to exist up until the time of Columbus, I thinks it's safe to say that the mount Ephraim referred to by Jeremiah is not located there, because he specifically said that it was located in a far country. Reason number two is that thousands of Jews migrated to this country from all over the world shortly after it began to form. The fact is (and I've mentioned this before) the highest concentration of Jews in the world is not in Israel, it is here in the United States. 

        I would also venture to say that many descendants of the children of Israel, unless they have traced their family roots, are unaware of their heritage because many Jewish names were changed when their ancestors began to Americanize some two centuries ago. In fact, some families changed their names before ever leaving the old countries in order to avoid being persecuted while they were still living there because they were branded and persecuted by the Christians of Europe and Russia as Christ murderers. This was one amazing feat of blame shifting in my opinion, because all Christians in those days received their marching orders from Rome of all places, and Rome at the very least aided in the death of the Savior it claims to worship. 

        Now that I have established that the lost tribe of Dan made its way to the United States, I'd like to explore how it was connected to the rise of the Antichrist. If you read The Night Watchman on a regular basis you will be familiar with what I'm about to say next. The Merovingian dynasty of Central Europe contains the family tree of the Antichrist. The seed was planted by Satan himself when he was in human form at the tower of Babel. He incarnated there into the body of the high priest of Shinar in order to become the lover of the wife of Nimrod and the father of her child. 

        After plotting with the high priest and then successfully murdering her husband, the wife of Nimrod was turned into a living goddess known as the queen of heaven (see Jeremiah 7:17-20). Her son (Satan's offspring) was worshipped with her as the ever popular sun god or Nimrod reborn, and this was the beginning of the worship of the mother of god and her child. It was a preemptive strike that happened thousands of years before the birth of Jesus and was done in anticipation of his arrival just over 2000 years ago. This is why I keep telling you that Satan is an expert on the word of God and he has been sorely underestimated by those who lead the world's churches. In a single move he created the bloodline that would produce the false Messiah, and at the same time he began the religion that would be blended with the covenant of Jesus and placed into the carcass of the lion (Israel) so it could be used in the final seduction in the last days

        Revelation 17:8 verifies that Satan has lived in a human body before because it refers to him as the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. The fact that he has lived more than one lifetime is also why God sounds like He is talking to him in certain verses of the Bible, even though He is calling him by another name. Ezekiel 28:1-19 is a prime example of this. In verse two God says to Ezekiel, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus says the Lord God. Chapter 28 starts out like God is telling Ezekiel to give a message to an earthly prince, but by the time you reach verse fourteen there can be no doubt who the message is really for. You are the anointed cherub that covers (archangel in charge); and I have set you so: you were upon the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire (the planets of our universe). 

        Many of you have written and said that you find it hard to believe that demons are walking the earth in human form. Perhaps that is how they have gotten away with so much down through the centuries. Regardless of whether you believe it or not, Satan was loosed from prison (see Revelation 20:1-10) in Genesis 3:1, and along with the angels that follow him has lived many lifetimes since. You were shown the trail they left with their monuments as they moved through time in Pestilence. Now I will show you how they wove mythology and legend in and out of reality over the years to aid in your confusion. 

        Satan taught the kings of Egypt at the tower of Babel (the Great Pyramid) how to worship him as Osirus, the god of death and resurrection. The fact is, Osirus was in human form at the garden of Eden and was the serpent who said unto the woman, You shall not surely die: For God knows that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, Genesis 3:4-5. This is what was taught to the Pharaohs of Egypt in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid. This is also why Napoleon stumbled out of the chamber disoriented (see Divided By One) during his visit to the Great Pyramid, and it is also why he adapted the beehive as one of his symbols. 

        Contrary to popular belief the Great Pyramid of Egypt is not a tomb, it is a temple where the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were taught to be as gods. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years, Genesis 6:1-3. These verses tell us that thesons of God (angels or demons, which ever you prefer) were in human form along with men, and they were mixing their numbers with ours. I can't make it any plainer than that.

        Osirus, the Egyptian god of death and resurrection was said to dwell among the stars of the constellation of Orion. The fact is, the pyramids on the Giza Plateau are laid out on the ground in the shape of the constellation of Orion. There are two stars missing however, diagonally across from each other at the corners. When you couple this fact with the information given in Genesis 11:1-9 you can begin to understand that the Great Pyramid is more than just a burial chamber. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain (plateau) in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there...And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven. The top or capstone of the Great Pyramid was made of gold and is missing because it was looted in antiquity. As I've stated before, the ancient Egyptians equated gold with the spirit, which is why the tower of Babel had a top that may reach unto heaven. 

The pyramids at the Giza Plateau showed to be that of a mirror image of the constellation of Orion.  STRIKING DISTANCE

        The importance of the two missing pyramids in the mirror image of the constellation of Orion on the ground is explained in Genesis 11:8. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. In other words they didn't finish it, which means that the Giza Plateau in Egypt is where the kingdom of Nimrod began, and this theory is further backed up by what the Bible says in the book of Exodus. 

        After leaving Egypt and arriving at the foot of the mountain of God in Saudi Arabia, Moses was called upon to receive the Ten Commandments. The second law given to him was this. You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven, Exodus 20:4. The layout of the pyramids on the Giza Plateau is exactly that, a likeness of something in heaven. Then in Exodus 20:25-26 God tells Moses, And if you will make me an alter of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone: for if you lift up your tool upon it, you have polluted it. Neither shall you go up by steps unto my altar, that your nakedness be not discovered thereon. If the Great Pyramid of Egypt is nothing else, it is a giant stairway to heaven made completely of hewn stone. More important than that though, is that your nakedness be not discovered thereon, because the word nakedness leads us right back to Genesis chapter three where Adam and Eve were found in the garden of Eden knowing for the first time that they were naked.

        What the serpent taught to Adam and Eve was the same thing that he taught to the royalty of Egypt for thousands of years afterwards. The forbidden fruit of the garden wasdesired to make one wise in Genesis 3:6, and this wisdom was Oneness or the stripping away of the veil that separates the spirit world from our own. Removing the veil (or body) and exposing the spirit (or soul) was referred to by God as nakedness. The serpent in the garden was teaching his own ways again to a new breed of people that had been created this time in God's own image. We were created in God's own image after the destruction He wrought between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 because He didn't like what Satan had done to the race created In the beginning

        It is this image of the serpent throughout the Bible that caused the tribe of Dan to be mistakenly cast on the side of the Devil in the last days, first, because his father said that he would be a serpent by the way in Genesis 49:17. The other reason is that Jeremiah 8:16-17 says of the Antichrist, The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein. For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, says the Lord. A cockatrice is a mythical animal that is part bird and part snake. It was tied to Dan because the original symbol used on the standard of the tribe was a red adder on a white background with a gold crown on its head. The adder was later replaced by an eagle, which was known for destroying snakes by hunting and eating them. 

        I believe the theory tying Dan to the cockatrice of Jeremiah to be wrong however, because Isaiah 14:29-31 says that the cockatrice attacking all of area around Israel in the last days that was once known as Palestine, will come from the serpents root...and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent (or missile), for there shall come from the north (Europe) a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times. The people living in and around the nation of Israel (the Middle East) are going to die by the truck load when this day comes, which is why Isaiah says that none shall be alone in his appointed times.

        Below you will find three pictures. The one on the left is of a statue of Osirus and the crown on its head is shaped unmistakably like a beehive. You will also notice that it has a serpent on the front of it making Egypt in my opinion the serpents root. All you have to do to verify this is read what is said in Genesis 3:14. And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and every beast of the field; upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life.  

        About 16 to 20 thousand years ago the climate of Egypt began to change. What had once been a green and fertile garden became a dry and dusty desert that will remain that way for as long as the nation of Egypt exists. Somewhere around 4 to 5 thousand years ago, as He was leading the people of Israel out of Egypt, God inflicted one last plague on the land that finished it off as the world's premier power of the day. Rainfall in the area surrounding Egypt decreased by twenty percent for two-hundred years causing the annual Nile floods to decrease creating a famine in the land. Carved into the stone of their own monuments is the fact that they cooked and ate their own children in order to survive, and some of them even stooped to recycling the children they ate by eating their own excrement. If that isn't fulfilling the curse of Genesis 3:14 (upon your belly shall you go) I don't know what is!

        The middle picture below is of the pyramid texts, which are said to be a record of ancient times. They are not carved on the walls of the Great Pyramid, but were placed instead on the walls of some of the smaller pyramids located elsewhere in the area. The three stars on the right side of this picture are referring to the star religion that was practiced inside the Great Pyramid itself by the cult that worshipped Osirus around 12,500 years ago.

         The picture on the right is of President Bush meeting with the leaders of Europe in the summer of the year 2001. The stars in this picture are an exact match to those in the middle and show you why the snorting of the Antichrist's horses was heard from Dan. It's because the headquarters of the United Nations is located in New York City, which the Bible says has now become the habitation of devils...and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird in Revelation 18:2.

Osirus the beehive shaped crown with the serpent on the front further prompts my opinion that Egypt is the serpent's root.  Striking Distance The pyramid texts are said to be a record of ancient times.  Striking Distance IIs it coincidence that these stars match those stars of the previous picture know as The Ancient Texts?  Striking Distance

        You can dismiss what you see in these pictures as coincidence, but your dismissal of the evidence won't change the truth of the matter. The fact is we were told by Jesus to watch for this very sign in Matthew 24:37-39, because when asked by the disciples in Matthew 24:3-4, what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world...Jesus answered and said in verses 37-39. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For in the days that were before the flood they (the angels of Satan) were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  

        This was a direct reference by Jesus to Genesis chapter six and the sons of God. Verses 1-3 can be found above so I won't repeat them, but verse four I will repeat, because I've used it before. It says, There were giants in the earth in those days (prior to Genesis 1:2); and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men, which were of old (before man), men of renown.

        Two of these men of renown are sitting next to the President of the United States in the picture above, and they are why Revelation 18:2 says that New York City has become the habitation of devils...and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird the United Nations has to offer. Our so called European allies have thrown an awful lot of hateful language at America lately, so I thought I'd return the favor by showing you who they really are. The man sitting next to President Bush is the Prime Minister of Sweden, who did all the talking in front of the cameras for the European Union at this press conference. Here is the bird used by his country.
