A Picture Paints a Thousand Words?

Someone sent me some information yesterday (1/16/00) that is very interesting. They also sent a picture but seeing I can't send that through the list I'm going to rehash what they said but try and do it so that you don't necessary need a map (although I would highly recommend it).

They start off with a reference to Og, king of Bashan:

Deuteronomy 3:11
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead [was] a bedstead of iron; [is] it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits [was] the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.

Og

05747 `Owg {ogue}
probably from 05746;; n pr m
AV - Og 22; 22
Og = "long-necked"
1) the Amorite king of Bashan and one of the last
representatives of the giants of Rephaim

Long necked, buried in Amman, Jordan.

Moza: If you were to look at a picture of the Middle East you would see that the borders of Jordan look like the flat- topped head of a man with a long neck.

Keep the image of a man's face turned to the south and continue reading.

...Daniel 11
19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.

Fort of his own land, Mecca! Jordan is facing Mecca!

Moza:
(Merriam Webster's Geographical Dictionary): Mecca also Mekka or Arab. Makkah, anc. Macoraba. Capital of Hejaz, W Saudi Arabia...a holy city and chief pilgrimage destination of Islam; birthplace of Muhammad, founder of Islam, c. 570 AD; contains the Great Mosque with the Kaaba and sacred Black Stone.

The head of the man is pointed at Saudi Arabia which holds the holiest sites of Islam.

Please see our earlier study on "Locusts" for more info regarding Mohammed, Arab nations and the correlation between them and locusts.

Revelation 9
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, [Sinai] and their faces were as the faces of men. [Jordan]

8 And they had hair as the hair of women, [Lebanon] and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. [Jordan]

9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; [Iraq, iron, oil] and the sound of their wings [Saudi Arabia, Syria] was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, [I have to get another map!] and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

God painted their borders with Rev. 9!

Moza: Jordan's border looks like the bottom 3/4 of a man's head and neck, Israel makes up the rest of the head (possibly hair?). Projected off to the left of Israel is the Sinai which does look like a crown. Lebanon is projected off to the right of Israel and looks like long hair. The "body" of the man is Iraq and his "wings" are Syria on the "back" of the man and Saudi Arabia in front of the man.

As far as the tails of scorpions, Uzbekistan and Pakistan seem to be more in the shape of scorpion's tails than anything else but they seem to be pretty far removed from the man (but then again, men aren't usually described as having scorpion's tails). I might be just projecting what I think should be the tail in this description but otherwise, everything seems to match up just like [it was] stated [earlier].

Remember, these borders were only drawn very recently--before the latter half of this century this study would have been impossible to do.

This study seems appropriate as the weekly reading in the Synagogue for this week starts off with the plague of locusts before the Exodus and goes through until the Israelites are set free.
