Joshua the Son of elohim gave this warning about the Abomination of Desolation as an unmistakable sign to his followers that the end of the world was near:
Joshua told his followers to read the 11th chapter of the Book of Daniel in order to see the sign that would immediately precede His Coming. At that time, most of the Jews used the marvelous translation called the Greek Septuagint. Here is that reference from the Book of Daniel:
Daniel chapter 11 is a continuation of the terrifying dream seen by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon of a colossal image representing 4 world empires who would rule the world until the end of time.
Nobody could interpret the dream for the king, so at last Daniel (whose name was changed to the pagan Belteshazzar) told the king the dream.
Daniel (Belteshazzar) told the king that the horrifying image represented 4 world empires. These empires were: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.
With a name like JEHOSHUA, the Jews fully expected the miracle-working Messiah to conquer the Romans like Joshua the son of Nun conquered the Canaanites in the Promised Land....To their great disappointment, he came as a spiritual conqueror only to defeat Sheol or Hades. . . and save the Romans . . . and the Jews . . . from their sins!
Daniel Chapter 11 continues the vision of Daniel Chapter 2 but the starting point is the mighty clash between Persia and Greece under Alexander the Great:
World conqueror Alexander died at the young age of 33 leaving no heirs. His empire was divided up among his 4 generals who became the founders of Greek dynasties.
The 4 generals of Alexander the Great became founders of Greek dynasties which ruled until the coming of the Romans.
Greek became the lingua franca of this 3rd universal empire represented by the thighs of brass in the image of King Nebuchadnezzar.
If ever a translation was divinely inspired . . . it was the Septuagint....The impact of the translation on the Hellenic World was incalculable.
Persians could now read about the exploits of their hero Cyrus the Great written 200 years before he was born.
Greeks could now read of the marvelous exploits of Alexander the Great written before he was even born.
It also prepared the world for the coming of the divine Redeemer and showed plainly how to translate the Names of the true God into Greek.
Here is the Greek Septuagint translation of 3 of the most important names in the Hebrew Old Covenant. The words are in lower case Koine Greek.
Joshua the son of Nun's original name was Hoshea, meaning SALVATION....Moses changed his name to JEHOSHUA meaning JEHOVAH is salvation.(Numbers 13:16).
Naturally, Satan was not content to allow this great translation to go unchallenged.
His champion to wipe out the Scriptures was a man by the name of Antiochus Epiphanes.
Antiochus substituted Zeus for JEHOVAH!!
Antiochus prohibited the worship of JEHOVAH in the great Temple in Jerusalem and put a statue of Zeus in the Temple. That was the Abomination of Desolation.
Antiochus was a type of the Antichrist predicted in the New Covenant. He put a statue of Zeus in the Temple. Here is a quote from the noncannonical Book of Maccabees:
Mount Olympus was the site of the main temple of Zeus–one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World... Zeus was a wrathful god always ready to hurl his thunderbolts at his deluded devotees who called him "Father."
Zeus was a wrathful god always ready to hurl his thunderbolts at his deluded devotees.
During his reign, Antiochus Ebegan a systematic destruction of the Septuagint:
Here is a quote from the great Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus:
The persecuting career of Antiochus Epiphanes ended when JEHOVAH struck him with a disease and he died miserably at the age of 52.
Emperor Diocletian continued the persecution of Antiochus
For 250 years after the Resurrection of Christ, Christianity was making remarkable progress against paganism. The New Covenant Scriptures were finished about 100 A.D., and added to the Septuagint to complete the Christian Bible.
Around 150 A.D., this completed Bible was translated into Latin. The effect of this translation for the Latin speaking world was electrifying.
Naturally, Satan was not content to allow this great translation to go unchallenged.
His champion to wipe out the New Covenant Scriptures was a man by the name of Gaius Aurelius Valerius Diocletianus called Diocletian in English.
Diocletian began the persecution by sacrificing to Jupiter (Zeus) to make his war against the Christians a success:
The terrible persecution that followed lasted 10 years and the only places that the Christian Scriptures survived were North Africa, Britannia, and outside the Roman Empire.
Even the pagan books opposing Christianity were destroyed because they would give away the real name of the Messiah.
Emperor Constantine put his idol in the Christian Temple!!
In the Holy Scriptures, St. Paul frequently speaks of the true Christians as the Temple of the Lord; the Israel of elohim, or the House of JEHOVAH:
When the persecution ended, Emperor Constantine (a worshipper of Apollo) changed the time and place of the Resurrection of Christ. A new "Christ" emerged which looked a lot like ZEUS with the effeminate long hair.
Paganism has always sought to substitute its false gods for the true God of Israel. When Paul and Barnabas were preaching the Gospel, the pagans mistook them for Zeus and Hermes:
The Greek pantheon consisted of 12 main gods and Christ had 12 disciples. There are many other amazing similarities between paganism and Christianity. Satan knows the Scriptures and he knew that Joshua (a type of the Messiah) chose 12 disciples and each disciple was represented by a STONE. (Joshua 4:4).
Jerome changed JEHOSHUA to Jesus!!
Incredible as it may seem to some, the Messiah's name was not Jesus of Nazareth but JOSHUA of Nazareth. After Constantine changed the time and place of the Resurrection, Jerome, under orders from Pope DAMNASUS, completed the Great Apostasy by changing the Saviour's name.
Names DO NOT translate from language to language but almost always sound the same in every language.
For instance, Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi is not called Joseph Green in English; nor is Italian Hero Giuseppe Garibaldi called Joseph Garibaldi. Julius Caesar is still called Julius Caesar as William Shakespeare is called William Shakespeare throughout the world.
The Hebrew names JEHOSHUA and Miriam were translated as JESUS and MARY by Jerome.
The only name Jerome did not change was CHRIST, but CHRIST is not a name but a title meaning Messiah in Hebrew. Cyrus the Great–a type of the Messiah–is also called CHRIST or ANOINTED in the Old Covenant
Cyrus the Persian, a type of the Messiah, was NAMED 200 years before he was born . . . so it is beyond belief that the real Messiah's name was not givenbeforehand!!
JEHOSHUA of Nazareth–The BRANCH of JEHOVAH
JEHOVAH is the most frequently used name of God in the Old Covenant. Translated into English it means THE ETERNAL or I AM THAT I AM:
JEHOSHUA means JEHOVAH is SALVATION. That was the name given to Joseph by the angel:
The Messiah's birthplace of Bethlehem was predicted by the prophet Micah (Micah 5:2). The time of his birth was predicted by Daniel the Prophet (Daniel 9:27); so it is absolutely incredible that His name was not given also.
At that time, every Jewish father wanted to name is son Joshua because they knew that the Messiah's name would be Joshua. Most Jewish women knew also that the mother of the Messiah would be named MIRIAM because we meet so many women named MIRIAM during the ministry of Christ.
JEHOSHUA grew up in Nazareth with his mother Miriam, his stepfather Joseph, 4 brothers and at least 2 sisters.
Matthew says that the prophets predicted that the Messiah would be called a Nazarene:
Nowhere does it say directly in the Old Covenant that the Messiah would be from Nazareth but plenty of hints are given. Isaiah the Prophet said:
All scholars know that Nazareth means BRANCH. Even the "Catholic" Encyclopedia admits it:
Here is how Jerome translated Isaiah 11:1:
JEHOVAH gave the name of our great HIGH PRIEST in advance:
Here is how Jerome tried to hide the name of the Messiah:
St. Paul devotes the entire Book of Hebrews to teaching about our great HIGH PRIEST, Joshua the Son of God.
Jerome changed Miriam to Mary or Maria!
In the Book of Acts–the only surviving history of the first years of Christianity–Miriam, the humble mother of Joshua of Nazareth—is only mentioned once....All of her subsequent history was also destroyed by Emperor Diocletian.
At the time of Christ, all the world worshipped the great female goddess under different names. The Greeks called her Artemis and the Romans called her Diana or Venus:
Money–what St. Peter calls filthy lucre– was a big motivation in the worship of Artemis (I St. Peter 5:2).
Mary or Maria is actually Diana of the Ephesians whose image fell down from Zeus:
There is a very good possibility that the image was a meteorite stone and is now worshipped at the Kaaba in Mecca!!
Zeus was the wrathful god always ready to hurl his thunderbolts at his devotees but Diana was the caring, compassionate one.
As well as the brisk trade in images, filthy rites were performed at the temple of Diana. Thousands of male and female prostitutes were on hand to help the people worship the goddess.
The talking idol in the Christian Temple today!!
Antiochus put a DUMB IDOL in the holy Temple of JEHOVAH in Jerusalem. The statue itself was harmless because it neither could see nor hear nor talk.
For the past 1600 years, a series of pagan Pontiffs or vicars of Zeus have reigned in Rome as vicars of CHRIST . . . and all claim to be the mouthpiece of the Almighty:
That was a quote about the talking idol named the Pontiff or Pope from handwriting on the wall Daniel the Prophet.
The Book of Revelation is just a continuation of the Old Covenant Book of Daniel.
Jupiter is the Roman name for the Greek Zeus....The statue of Jupiter was renamed St. Peter . . . and the statue of Venus was renamed Mary or Maria . . . and thus paganism continued to flourish at Rome under the guise of Christianity.
Islam eliminated the Divine Names completely!!
The substitution of the Divine Names begun by Jerome was completed by their complete elimination by Islam....Hebrew and Arabic are very similar languages so JEHOVAH should sound the same in both languages.
After the Apostle Paul met JOSHUA of Nazareth on the Damascus Road, he immediately went to preach Christ to the Arabs:
The Arabs knew the JEHOVAH was the name of the one true God but Muhammad and his followers eliminated the Name completely from the unholy Koran.
The Vatican used the Muslims to destroy the Christians and their Bibles in the Middle East and North Africa. Islam's destruction of Christians and their Bibles also extended to Persia, India, and China. Until now, Islam's advance into Western Europe was stopped by Polish King Jan III Sobieski.
The image of Diana of the Ephesians was a meteorite stone and both religions are so similar that it could be the very same stone that is now worshipped at the Kaaba in Mecca!!
You won't find the name Joshua mentioned once in the unholy Koran. As a matter of fact, the name Alah means CURSING in Hebrew:
