    Either the Bible is very curt in its explanations, or Jehovah intuitively knew the exact moment of one's death, for in the case of both Aaron and Moses, he told them exactly when to die. With Aaron, one day he had instructed Moses, Aaron and Aaron's son, Eleazar, to climb Mt. Hor, where Moses stripped Aaron of his priestly garment and placed it on his son, and right on cue, Aaron died on the mountain top. Curious, since he had been well enough to climb the mountain; quite a feat for a hundred twenty-three-year-old man! In the case of Moses, he "went from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, and there he died."
    Again it is curious that he was apparently in good health, not only able to climb the mountain, but the Bible also says: "his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated." Whatever the cause of his death, the people mourned his passing for thirty days. The Bible says: "There arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face."

    When the Hebrews entered the promised land, under the leadership of Joshua and the Chief Priest, Phinehas, grandson of Aaron, Jehovah assisted them. As they approached the Jordan River, led by the priests carrying the "ark of the covenant," Jehovah parted the water, magnified Joshua in the sight of the people and sent an angel to bless him. After celebrating the "passover" in Gilgal, the distribution of manna ceased and the people began to eat "the fruit of Canaan."

    Carrying the "ark" into battle, they conquered Jerico, Ai, Hazor and neighboring towns, brutally killing the people, their livestock and burning the towns. The Bible reports: "There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel ... for it was of the Lord to harden their hearts."
    Setting up the tent of the "tabernacle" at Shiloh, the Hebrews divided the territory they had conquered. The Bible doesn't mention that they had just disobeyed the majority of the Ten Commandments by carrying out these vicious acts of genocide. Another sanctuary was then set up in Gilgit, near Jerusalem.

    The Philistines not only ruled over the Hebrews for forty years, but also stole their most precious possession, the "ark of the covenant," but because it caused them such great pain, they only kept it for seven months. When the Hebrews gathered to celebrate its return, Jehovah killed fifty thousand and seventy of them because they dared to look into it! Can you imagine fifty thousand dead bodies'? (ehii ).

    The surviving Hebrews were faithful for twenty years, and finally, with the help of Jehovah's "great thunder [technology]," subdued the Philistines. Of this technological help, the Bible says: "The stars in their courses fought against the enemy with thunder and hailstones that discomfited and slew them with it great slaughter; that the Lord may do his strange work and bring to pass his strange act.''
    These high-tech "blasts" would indeed appear as it "strange act" to the primitive Bedouin people!
    When the last judge, Samuel, began to age, his sons ruled in his stead, but due to their evil ways, the Hebrews demanded a king. Jehovah warned against the evils of monarchy, but when they would not listen, he chose Saul, a "goodly man" who stood "higher than any of the people." After Jehovah put his spirit upon Saul and "gave him another heart," Samuel anointed him as the first Hebrew king.

    When David was at death's door, he was provoked by Satan or Jehovah--the scriptures are contradictory, one indicating that Satan and Jehovah are the same person--to "number" the inhabitants. But when he did so, Jehovah sent a "plague" upon the people.
    When seventy thousand people died, David, like Moses, pleaded with him not to be so harsh.

    After David's death, his son Solomon donned the crown, and when Jehovah asked him what he wanted, Solomon answered: "Wisdom." Thus "Solomon's wisdom [knowledge] excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country.

    A point that is often missed is what Solomon actually did with his gift of "wisdom [knowledge]". He married foreign women; tolerated all religions, and encouraging unity. He surpassed the Hebrew idea of separatism by making foreign alliances; delegated authority to others; and hired foreign craftsmen (stone masons) to build the temple. He was not narrow minded, arrogant or exclusive, and had a great appreciation for craftsmanship. But these qualities greatly displeased Jehovah; broad-mindedness and free thinking are always a threat to a dictator.

    Because Jehovah was against the monarchial system, he did not speak directly through the kings, but through the prophets, who became their advisors. Many of the early prophets wrote books that have since been Iost. Most of the prophets were dignified and well accepted by the kings, although Hanai and Micaiah were imprisoned for their dire predictions. But the most colorful of all the prophets, Elijah, "clad in a hairy mantle,"
    was a thorn in the side of the rich kings with their elaborate palaces. The wicked King Ahab and his wife Jezebel, who, around 900 BC, tried to implant the worship of Ba'al, threatened to kill all the prophets, causing Elijah to seek refuge in a cave, where he was fed by a raven.
    He was later fed by an angel who told him to "stand upon the mount before the Lord."

    As Jehovah passed by with a "strong wind that broke the rocks into pieces and caused an earthquake," his voice, instructed Elijah to anoint a king over Syria and Israel, stating that he still had seven thousand faithful souls in Israel who had not bowed to Ba'al. Performing many "miracles," Elijah brought a child back to life, parted the waters and brought fire from heaven to consume a captain and his army. As a grand finale, after "parting the Jordan River, he ascended into heaven in a "chariot of fire!
    When Elijah was "taken up in a chariot [spacecraft]," the people had a curious reaction. Not understanding what had happened, they began to look for him, "lest the spirit of the Lord hath taken him up and cast him upon some mountain or into some valley."


    Why would they make this assumption unless they had previously encountered this difficulty? Does this remind you of today's "abduction" claims, in which people are taken into a craft, then returned in some remote place? This was mentioned again in the New Testament when Philip was taken up and set

    The first writings of the prophets to be preserved were those of Amos and Hosea, who prophesied around 760 to 730 BC. Amos, the shepherd and naturalist, who was not trained by any of the schools for prophets, hailed Jehovah as the God of all nations and warned that the "covenant" with the Hebrews could be "broken."
    Jehovah threatened to destroy Israel by fire, but Amos talked him out of it and Jehovah finally "repented" for his drastic thoughts.
    Hosea, warning against social injustice, spoke of Jehovah's love, healing and forgiveness for his "betrothed Israel [his bride]." Later, however, Jehovah contradicted this lovely statement declaring that he had "divorced" Israel.
