All The King’s Horses And All The King’s Men…

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again! A look at the nightly news can tell us that this world is sick and confused and growing more ill and dazed as time ticks on.

Well, as I have said before, various kinds of people are looking for various kinds of things and most of those things are pipe dreams and just won’t happen. What will happen as per guaranteed prediction, however, has been place in regulated, accepted religious works and NOT through so-called ‘psychic flimflammary’, wishful thinking or self-delusional fantasies. It is true that we are not given the exact times of these future events but the wisdom comes from recognizing the closeness of these occurrences.

Unfortunately, certain estranged sects among the various accepted religions of this world are trying to ‘push things’ to a certain conclusion. This means that they are declaring that they have the power to ‘sway’ the ONE LORD to do their fondest desires or beliefs. That notion of trying to ‘push the ONE GOD into something’ is utterly repugnant to normal human thought!

A certain malaise, however, has entered into the world as well as a certain ‘feeling’ that all is not well in our little garden called Earth. Greed and certain ‘ways of doing things’ have just about guaranteed our future’s near total extinction as a species as was prophesied in the Holy Books –for the WILL OF ALLAH WILL PREVAIL.

But many fear that WILL due to ignorance, arrogance, pride, forgetfulness, stubbornness or evil intentions! A sick person with a dangerous disease knows that he is very ill and goes to a doctor for some kind of fix-it solution but an ‘ignorant’ person is unaware of the signs of danger and does not go to the doctor for advice or medicine and ends up the worse for wear.

That is half the puzzle! The other half is what happens when the person sees a ‘quack’ doctor who dispenses idiotic solutions and phony medicine? So in a buyers’ market, ‘let the buyer beware’. The religious translation is let NOT the faithful be deluded or ignorant but wise.

The second part of the puzzle is the cruncher! The doctor the patient is trying to see is synonymous with the ‘religious expert’ or shepherd to the flock (congregation) but some of those shepherds would make a common leach look charitable. So common sense and a good dose of patience with a lot of persistence thrown in at getting at the facts are the medicines needed to keep the wolf away from the door.

We know that there are many evil or careless high-level men in countless organizations (political or otherwise) who have enough sycophants around them to manufacture stupidity and slavery against their own citizens and get away with it by the power of the gun (money and torture). Yet the general public has a right to call for clarification in religious notions which is and still remains the bread of life.*

One reason that will NOT be a favorite pastime is that the seeking after truth is not accounted very high on the priority list for survival – spiritual or physical. Naturally, that statement should be challenged every step of the way. However, when such sayings like, “We wouldn’t be in this mess IF WE FOLLOWED/LIVED (THE TRUTH, DO THE RIGHT THINGS, REALLY BELIEVED OR FOLLOWED THE COMPANIONS) is repeated like a broken record seemingly every week, then something is apparently wrong.

There are a few answers to the puzzle but it wouldn’t do much good because the drama of life has to be lived out. THE CANDY LAND EXPERIENCE OF REACHING THE ‘GOAL’ COMES AT A PRICE AND WHAT HAS BEEN SET IS NOT GOING TO BE UNSET JUST BECAUSE THE PARTY WILL SOON BE OVER.

“And do not insult {by taunting} those whom they worship besides GOD, lest they insult GOD wrongfully without knowledge. Thus, have WE made fair-seeming to each people its own doings {ways}; then to their LORD is their return and HE shall then inform them of all that they used to do”.                                Quran (6:108)

Of course the above verse has gradients for the various meanings of ‘those whom they worship besides God’ from outright deniers of THE ONE GOD, self-worshipers, those who worship many gods, those who worship the forces, those who have hidden agendas mixed in with their supposed worship of THE ONE GOD as in the various sects setting up differences between the peoples from the same religion.

Of course  logic dictates that the penalty for this varies with the crime! Hence the looking eagerly for repentance and submitting one’s self to the EVERLIVING ONE – ALLAH.

And logic dictates that it is NOT so easy to change ways as in a snap of the fingers because life was made in a certain way as in ‘Thus WE have made fair-seeming to each people its own doings’… Talk about the saying that “There is NO Power and NO strength except in ALLAH” definitely has some meaning!

THE ONE GOD does NOT make mistakes or empty promises NOR does HE make rash decisions. The human race has, for example, been promised something very devastating as in the ‘return’ of Gog and Magog and that might happen within the next twenty or so years of this writing give or take a few years (it ALL DEPENDS ON ALLAH’s WILL) – so having ‘false hope’ that THE ONE GOD will repent from HIS PLAN is obnoxiously misplaced foolishness.

Those who appreciate the truth, no matter what form it takes, should feel happy at least deep down inside that there is a ONE GOD WHO CARES FOR THE TRUTH, JUSTICE, MERCY AND SALVATION OF THE HUMAN SOUL THAT COMES TO HIM WILLINGLY AND BOWS DOWN TO HIS GREATNESS IN HUMBLENESS.

The last article, It Is What It Is talked about a certain ‘great city’ (Rome) and perhaps shocked some people. The idea of those two verses that I used was that they were only a concept and a construct of what can be called a general ‘characteristic’.

By taking the ‘greatness’ soul-wise of the obedient servant Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) as to his presentation to the world of a sinless man living for the sake of ALLAH and compare him and his devotion with the animalistic greed, false practices and false pagan ways of darkness which has led men of various ages away from the truth into darkness, sin and forgetfulness, we find an understanding in the expression… ‘Having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornications’… and… which reigns over the kings of the earth.

This idea was already expressed in the New Testament when it was stated that man cannot {nor will he be allowed to get away with it} serve both GOD and mammon {at the same time}. For that is like saying man can worship Satan and GOD at the same time!

No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve {both} GOD and mammon {at one and the same time}.       Matthew (6: 24)

Are the verses that I took from the Book of Revelations naming Rome as mammon? No, they are not. They are merely forecasting the degradation of the true teachings of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) by a ‘mixing of the leaven with the lump of what has happened previously many times in the past (to all of the prophets’ teachings of which there were 124,000 prophets in number).

Abu Dharr told that he asked ALLAH’s Messenger who was the first of the prophets and he replied that it was Adam. He asked if he was really a prophet and he replied, “Yes, he was a prophet to whom a message was given.” He asked ALLAH’s Messenger how many messengers there had been and he replied, “There have been three hundred and between ten and twenty all told.” In a version on the authority of Abu Umama, Abu Dharr told that he had asked ALLAH’s Messenger the number which made up the full complement of the prophets and he replied, “A hundred and twenty-four thousand among who were three hundred and fifteen messengers all told.”     (Ahmad)

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament agree that the symbolic word ‘leaven’ represents something akin to evil. It is often used to symbolize corrupt doctrine or corrupt religious practices which can filter into the real practices and like leaven cause the dough to become corrupted from the original unadulterated ‘flat bread’ or original sayings, beliefs or practices. That word ‘corruption’ is an important word to remember as it calls to mind NOT to mix true worship with the symbolic ‘whoredoms’ of false worship or concepts.

Your glorying is NOT good. Know you not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?

Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1 Corinthians (5: 6 and 8)

With the introduction of anti-truths and paganism issuing forth by dynamic decree from the center of religious prestige called in the Book of Revelations – ‘that great city’ (And the woman which thou saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth Revelation (17: 18). Not only that but these ‘decrees’ will have a lot of influence on how other countries will have their political and social fabric shaped and re-shaped by those in power.

The words ‘reign over the kings of the earth’ is on a multi-level type of understanding. It deals not only with leadership but also with the rank and file (the people) as we have been told by the Prophet (pbh) in that the son of Adam if given a valley of gold would NOT BE SATISFIED UNTIL HE GETS ANOTHER VALLEY OF GOLD ON TOP OF THE FIRST ONE.

Ibn ‘Abbas reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “If the son of Adam possessed a valley full of gold he would want to have two valleys, yet his mouth will only be filled by earth {in death}. Allah turns towards those who turn in repentance.”     (Muslim)

Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle said, “If Adam’s son had a valley full of gold, he would like to have two valleys, for nothing fills his mouth except dust. And Allah forgives him who repents to Him.”

Narrated ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said, “Who among you considers the wealth of his heirs dearer to him than his own wealth?” They replied, “O Allah’s Apostle! There is none among us but loves his own wealth more.” The Prophet said, “So his wealth is whatever he spends (in Allah’s Cause) during his life (on good deeds) while the wealth of his heirs is whatever he leaves after his death.”

So one can argue that ‘raw capitalism’ has failed because it is only a cheap imitation of Islamic capitalism! This can be easily fathomed when one is introduced to what really is Islamic capitalism. Islamic capitalism, however, is not well known in today’s world.

When men strive with might and glory for the increase in the buck in raw capitalism, millions in the various cities all over the world are allowed to live 4 to 6 to a room and dozens have to share a communal, filthy bathroom. In this scenario, the youth have no chance for jobs and the natural pattern of getting married just doesn’t exist and this leads to depression and frustration.

There are many cities of this type found throughout the world of course but I was thinking about Alexandria and Cairo to name but a few and for a good reason. Remember the Dark Ages and Middle Age of Europe? Disgusting wasn’t it due to primitive conditions. Remember the ‘glory’ of the Islamic countries in that age? How is it that the advancing age has turned the tables into the reverse?

For one thing, having slaves and colonies to cheat the indigenous people gives more money to the ‘conquerors’ supposedly to invest more in their own well being. And if these people are later emulated by copying how to maintain the economic advantage without obtaining the elicit advantage in the first place of cheating other peoples except their own kind, it is only natural that the system would eventually fail unless it would be propped up by deficit spending – to keep the people happy – which further increases the witlessness of deficit spending.

It is obvious that ‘raw capitalism’ will eventually destroy a society and create havoc amongst the people as people strive to grasp ever more gold for their pockets while gaining nothing for their acquirers except more humiliation in the end because of their lack of blessing. Thus, society becomes like what we see in the areas of glitter surrounded by the bitter pill of wretched poverty.

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam: I asked the Prophet (for some money) and he gave me, and then again I asked him and he gave me, and then again I asked him and he gave me and he then said, “This wealth is (like) green and sweet (fruit), and whoever takes it without greed, Allah will bless it for him, but whoever takes it with greed, Allah will not bless it for him, and he will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied. And the upper (giving) hand is better than the lower (taking) hand.”

The poor grow poorer and the rich grow richer while the others ‘fight hard’ to maintain materialistic normality so they won’t sink into the economic abyss. But many sink and thus we find the anomaly of the shrinking middle class.

So the ‘kings of the earth’ are not lions, tigers or bears but the human race!!! Have we, the human race not demonstrated our alleged superiority over the lower animal kingdom? Thus part of the puzzle has been solved when we reflect back on the ‘greed’ aspect of the anti-christ – as to a concept and a construct as was mentioned before on that aspect of the other type of anti-christ.

The fact that ROME was alluded to as ‘the city’ is NOT such a mystery when Truth and the Pagan patterns are aligned. It is just a symbol for the true way being soiled by ‘foreign substances’ like mixing the leaven with the lump (found as a New Testament prophecy) or taking any true prophets’ words including the words of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) and causing them to be adulterated thereby committing a ‘whoring’ relationship with falsehood while giving birth to diseased thoughts and practices past off as divine revelation.

This of course was a prediction found in the Book of Revelations of what will come about with the key mentioning of those ‘church-imperial colors’ – purple, scarlet and gold.

But it was a Mercy to the world that Prophet Muhammad (pbh) was sent so as to have built up over time a counter balance to the above monster talked about in Revelations. That counter balance was a tempering effect against certain behaviors and was to eventually allow various peoples to make choices and not be completely swallowed up by that monstrous whore.

This tempering effect can be seen from the developments from the ‘Age of Reasoning’ that showed many secret adaptations of Islamic thought being incorporated into ‘European/early American philosophy. And just like with the sciences including math and medicine, the advancement was a type of ‘in-house’ credit by declaring “Arabs Who?”

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornications.     Revelation (17: 4)

And the woman which thou saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.          Revelation (17: 18)

Once again, perhaps the reader was taken aback by such audacity as portraying the ‘city’ of Rome as this villainous and filthy harlot. For one thing, it is not too fruitful to deal with so-called ‘esoteric’ writings and the Book of Revelations is filled with esoteric stuff that perhaps serves a purpose to a few but does NOT offer a common interest to the many.


In this day and age when many ‘things’ are opening up or being uncovered, it comes as no great surprise to see new angles on certain things being investigated. But how are they perceived? If they are perceived in convincing man that the ONE GOD exists and that HE and HE ALONE is the ONLY ONE that should concern our major thoughts and be in our hearts as in seeking out ways to please HIM, then by all means a good purpose has been served.

That purpose may open some people up to a more practical study of ‘religion’ as a unifying factor and an appreciation for the truth and in searching out the truth rather than a clannish or tribal insistence that ‘we’ are correct simply because ‘we’ belong to a certain blessed religion/race, nationality or country.

So what is the Book of Revelations found in the New Testament and should we be concerned about it? The answer is NO!!!

First of all, this little book found at the end of the New Testament is, to put it mildly, esoteric in nature. It would be helpful, however, to understand some basic stuff about this book which will give a reason for the ‘NO’ answer above.

In my opinion, I believe that that the New Testament should be like the Quran in certain respects which unfortunately for the Bible is not to be. The Quran contains ONLY THE UNALTERED, UNTOUCHED WORDS OF THE ONE GOD AND NOT SAYINGS OF THE PROPHET (PBH) OR EVEN HADITH QUDSI (Sacred Hadiths considered the direct WORDS of ALLAH but words expressed in Muhammad’s own words).

As I have stated in the past, the writings of Paul and even the Acts of the Apostles should not be put ‘in’ the New Testament. The list gets expanded as to throw out all things except the four Gospels.

This does NOT mean that the ‘other’ writings are not trustworthy – far from it. It means that they don’t reach the same level of ‘direct revelation’ to the prophet Jesus (pbh) and therefore cannot be considered as the strongest source of revealed truths because quite frankly they (those writers) were NOT on the same level as Jesus was. In fact, much of those other pieces of writing do show a great deal of truth as was seen by the various authors but that means according to their ‘lights’ and not necessarily according to the real Reality.

The puerile argument that the Holy Ghost (Archangel Gabriel) was constantly hovering over those people causing their writings to be perfect is nothing more than a statement of ignorance brought forth by weak-minded individuals who are afraid of the truth. That much is a ‘given’ (admitted to) even by their own highly placed scholars who thanks be to ALLAH are not TV Evangelists!

Secondly, the New Testament would have to be in the ‘original’ language to the revealer (Jesus) as it was being revealed (by Gabriel). The Greek language which was not the language of the people where Jesus spoke or came to (he was but sent ONLY to the lost sheep of the House of Israel) was not the language impressed upon the servant Jesus (pbh) as that which was to be revealed to the people.

But he answered and said, I am NOT sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.       Matthew (15: 24)

Having gotten that out of the way, let us take a closer look at the Book of Revelations. This book was NOT universally accepted as a true book by the ‘church’ at first but through various stages; it gained enough ground to be accepted as a type of ‘revealed’ piece of literature.

The date and author of this work is NOT WITHOUT DOUBT by scholars so that puts this little book into a mystery class. However, there are things that can be ‘guessed’ with some degree of accuracy.

It is to be suggested that this ‘book’ was first written down some time in the 90s AC by either John the Disciple of Jesus (pbh) or John’s disciple. The best ‘guess’ at this point in time with all things considered including scriptural analysis is that this book was ‘authored’ by a man known as John the Presbyter.

John the Presbyter is NOT one of the true disciples of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) and he never saw Jesus in the flesh either. John the Presbyter is considered an obscure figure in early church history but that doesn’t mean that this little book is false. It just means that this book is NOT to be classified as ‘scriptural revelation’.

Perhaps the best way to look at who is this ‘Presbyter’ is to look at what can be gleaned from an ancient Christian source – Papias of Hierapolis. He mentions several Presbyters who would be considered in this day and age as followers of the original disciples of Jesus (pbh). A type equivalent to a Presbyter in Islamic history would be the ‘Tabi’een’ or one of those that belonged to the second generation who did not see Muhammad (pbh) but knew of him from those who did – his original Companions.

Furthermore, this book ensued by way of a dream to that particular person it came to and according to Prophet Muhammad (pbh) a dream if it is true, is one-forty sixth part of prophecy. The other piece of the puzzle comes from knowing the difference between a personal gift and Holy Revelation!

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: When the time draws near (when the Resurrection is near) a believer’s dream can hardly be false. And the truest vision will be of one who is himself the most truthful in speech, for the vision of a Muslim is the forty-fifth part of Prophecy, and dreams are of three types: one {a} good dream which is a sort of good tidings from Allah; the evil dream which causes pain is from the Satan; and the third one is a suggestion of one’s own mind; so if any one of you sees a dream which he does not like he should stand up and offer prayer and he should not relate it to people, and he said: I would love to see fetters (in the dream), but I dislike wearing of necklace, for the fetters is (an indication of) one’s steadfastness in religion. The narrator said: I do not know whether this is a part of the hadith or the words of {another relater} Ibn Sirin.     (Muslim)

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The vision of a pious man is the forty-sixth part of Prophecy.  (Muslim)

Because one cannot pour 5 liters of liquid into a one liter container, the capacity of the container would show waste if this were to happen. Hence, what is given to a one liter container is but one liter only so as to prevent waste. This translates into the quality of the ‘dream’ being given and measured to the quality of the receptor (receiver) who in this case was one of the Johns mentioned above.

The Book of Revelations is not only a dream transmitted piece of literature but it is also a gift-type of literature as a kind of PERSONAL PRESENT for showing endurance and a ‘sign’ that he, the receiver, did indeed not live in vain nor was he forgotten by his LORD.

Therefore, it becomes a personal message rather than a universally shared religious message. That can be easily seen by the ten million and one different meanings people throughout the ages have given this piece of literature as well as its esoteric nature and its many riddles.

All of the prophets came with a clear message to the people who were opened in their hearts to hear that message. Otherwise why give the people a message to follow that is undecipherable? Therefore, a book which cannot be easily deciphered in its basic instruction cannot be considered as Holy Writ. It is as simple as that! Yet see how many people want to ‘hang on’ to this book as if they knew what it was talking about.

Such a piece of literature would NOT be considered as being a part of any Holy Book due to its mysterious nature and messages within a message that only the receiver would know for sure. Otherwise, true religious teachings would be regulated to only a chosen few and the purpose of SALVATION FOR MANKIND IN GENERAL WOULD ONLY BE A JOKE. So in actuality it is the ‘clarity and unity of purpose’ without contradictions that the ONE GOD sent down to mankind to be utilized, studied, practiced and understood by man in general that is of the most benefit to man.

To think otherwise is to revel in the idea of ‘fool’s gold’ being worth a fortune and ‘real’ gold being counted as practically worthless! The bread of life mentioned above is basic for those who seek out SALVATION. In short this bread of life means:

And I (ALLAH) created not the jinns and humans except that they should worship ME (Alone). I seek not any provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for MY creatures) nor do I ask that they should feed ME.             Qur’an (51: 56-57)

*The bread of life is the basic existence of life and the existence of life is for a very real purpose. The purpose is to get to understand something of the relationship between GOD and man (sometimes called the purpose of life or the realization that HIS WAY IS THE ONLY WAY EVEN UNTO SALVATION), the relationship between man and man (man’s relationship to his own species) and the relationship between man and his environment (surrounding, nature, natural laws, etc.) on the way towards salvation or self-willed rejection of such.

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, I said, you are gods?”

If HE {in derision} called them ‘gods’ unto whom the Word of GOD came, and the scripture cannot be broken;            John (10: 34-35)

Then do you see such a one as takes as his god his own vain desire? ALLAH has knowing (him as such) left him astray and sealed his hearing and his heart (and understanding) and put a cover on his sight. Who then will guide him after ALLAH (has withdrawn Guidance)? Will you not then receive admonition?    Quran (45: 23)

And they have taken (for worship) gods other than ALLAH to give them Power and Glory!    Quran (19: 81)

The building blocks for the shaping or building of ‘our house’ are in the actions that are brought forth making us who we are (truthful, liars, meek, bold, braggart, fool, wise, thief, kind, loyal, honest, sincere, complainer, provocateur, patient, stubborn, helpful and the list goes on and on.

So the ONE GOD multiplies that which is good for the credit of our balance at the ‘end of days’ and limits the damage of the negative acts that the follower may be saved through HIS MERCY and KINDNESS. Thus, we all are in debt to HIM such that HE ALLOWS us to put ‘our house’ in order:
For whatever good deed you send on before your souls, you will find it with ALLAH. It will be improved and richly rewarded by HIM.
Quran (73: 20)
Whoever does a good deed will be repaid tenfold, but those who do a bad deed will only be repaid with {only} its equivalent and they shall not be wronged.

Quran (6: 160)
