An archive and reformatting from Brainout's original blogs (oldest starts at the bottom as it moves up to the newest). The advantages of having moved it here are fourfold:  all of the resources can be linked back internally (which means when you download a copy of this website it'll be self-contained),  the formatting is internal to the website now, and it's not at risk of being lost from whenever blogspot.com goes under or removes/deletes content,  the content and comments are no longer 'shrunk' until you open the dedicated entry since all entries are now here in their entirety,  any broken URLs have been redirected to the wayback machine. It's also much faster and easier to read (in my opinion). Any videos from 3rd parties which have been deleted are unfortunately lost now.
As for the video status, I've now finished the Magnificat meter series, so now will get back to 11 GGS on Paul's meter in Eph1:3-14, picking up at Diocletian, syllable 283 NOW (in May). I've done 13 more videos covering Diocletian and Constantine, but will only upload one per week, each time on Thursdays. Average time per video is about 40 minutes.
Really, it's faster if you just read Ephesians1REPARSED.doc at syllable 283 et seq. If you prefer htm, just replace 'doc' with htm. In either case, you need to download the BibleWorks fonts, because I've not yet mastered Unicode (sorry). The pdf version won't navigate well, but does 'recognize' the internet links: Eph1DecreeSyllablesREPARSED.pdf.
The Synoptics series (proving Mark is the THIRD Gospel and Matthew first), is posted on Fridays. Still in Luke 1 and 2 by way of Haggai, proving Luke and Matthew's Chanukah wordplay.Still have to finish the other series, too. If you have a priority preference, tell me here or on Youtube.
Because Google Blogger is now ugly GLARING white, and nearly impossible to READ for making posts, I'll rarely post here anymore. Will be doing most of the new stuff in Youtube as 'brainouty', with off-Youtube docs and htms in the video descriptions.
So here's a vid I just made which summarizes the import of my websites and videos. All of them tie to the words in this video: https://youtu.be/tWxj6FOyWCs
I will find another way to make blog entries, away from Google. Will announce the new blog in a final post here, and in Youtube. It will take me months to figure out where to go, now. Google designers are now crazy. They're destroying the readability of Youtube, and now Blogger.
Currently I'm working on documenting the Hebrew Meter ties between Psalm 90, Isaiah 53, Daniel 9 and even Ephesians 1:3-14, proving that Paul's playing DANIEL in Ephesians 1. It's awesome, and unknown to Christendom, so it MUST be documented live in video using standard mss critical editions you can check yourself. That project, in addition to the other unfinished video projects I've been involved in over the past year, has left precious little time to tighten up the wording in the webpages. But I'll get to it, eventually!
Thank you for your patience! Come visit me as 'brainouty' in Youtube if you want to comment or complain!
I finished the 72 videos demonstrating why KJVO is a satanic movement. You can view them in my 'brainouty' channel or in my playlist at SatStrat2.htm#KJVO. Here are the videos. The links take you straight to Youtube, where you can also read the video descriptions. Two embedded videos below, help you see the tenor.

I now realize why people get so unhinged when you tell them the Bible is mistranslated: they don't understand how God creates Perfection amidst imperfection. They think there should be One Perfect Specimen sitting in a museum somewhere, pristine. LOL. Okay, then only Christ Himself, should be in Heaven, too.
Yet look: here we are, all sinners, many saved, still imperfect, yet considered Sons of God in Christ Jesus (Gal 3:26). So if that isn't a compromise to Perfection, and in fact IS a perfection, why wouldn't God do the same thing, with His Word? After all, the Word is in the hands of, and maintained by, imperfect people.
See, God lives INSIDE you. Each God. So you are simultaneously perfect and imperfect, all at the same time, for that reason. There are many Bible verses and keywords describing this fact. Quickly coming to my mind from the Holy Spirit (principle of John 14:26, HE brings the verses to your mind), are:
I did several videos on this topic of How God's Perfect Word is preserved IN AGGREGATE, in a BODY, a TEAM, not just one 'player'. Click here, then watch Parts 1c-1f, on how 1Cor12:7, proves from the Greek, how God's Word is a TEAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__f_Ssthzko. But the best of the videos I've done on this, is (click here), 'How I use Bible Translations'. Important audio links are in that video's description, to help you understand How God makes Perfection 'live' inside imperfection. It will really help you understand how to live the spiritual life, once you understand how God preserved Perfect Word despite all the copying errors, translation errors, attempts to hide Bible, etc.
The theological title for How God Communicated His Perfect Word is 'Verbal Plenary Inspiration', and it addresses this Perfection amidst imperfection, issue. Usually you'll hear VPI defined kinda like this: 'God so supernaturally empowered the original writers of Scripture such that, without waiving their personalities, writing style, or any other human factor, His Full and Perfect Communication was transmitted to the human race.' So Paul sinned, but wrote Perfect Canon. Same for Moses, David, etc.
So God's Word is a TEAM: team of original writers, team of copyists, team of translators, each one fallible but with SO MANY of them, you still can know God's Perfect Word, as it's still PRESERVED. After all, you have the Perfect Holy Spirit as the WITNESS to what those Words are. Just use 1John1:9 regularly, study God's Original Words in the original Hebrew and Greek -- doesn't matter we don't have the original papyri, we DO have thousands of copies of the original words!
See the genius of God's TEAM approach? It's a lot harder for Satan to destroy many copies, than just one. Sure, he can tamper with the original words of God, make scribes miscopy them. He can tamper with the Bible translators, and make them mistranslate. But if there are MANY MANY copyists, translators and translations, then whoa -- Satan can't make ALL of them screw up ALL of the time! So for any one Bible verse, somewhere there's a perfect original copy. So for any Bible translation of the same verse, at least one Bible translation 'wins' in a clause, whereas some other Bible translation 'wins' in translating some other clause, etc. So then you need ALL of the translations. So IN AGGREGATE, you STILL have amidst all these imperfect copies and translations, God's Perfect Word Perfectly Stated. Heh. God uses an army, not just one soldier; a TEAM, not just one player! For He well knows we'll sin. But we don't all sin ALL the time now, do we. :)
Here's a bigger reason why God's Perfectly Preserved Word is a TEAM: it cannot be perfectly translated. Instead, each original word has maybe 16 meanings which ALL apply at once! I illustrate this fact in a 20-minute audio (click here), using only two Hebrew words in Isaiah 53:11: 'bedato' and 'yatsdiq', which tell you HOW Christ paid for sins. Each Divine Word has maybe 16 layers of meaning, but a translator is only allowed to pick ONE. So then the other 15, are left out! See why God's Word has to be embedded in a TEAM of writers, original-language manuscripts, copyists, translators -- and even teachers?
KJVO and other idiots claim there must be only ONE translation or ONE originally-preserved papyrus, to qualify as perfect. Yeah, that's the lie some demon gave to Muhammed, too. Witness why: for if only one original, one copy, one translation, well -- that ONE could be easily destroyed and replaced by someone CLAIMING the REPLACEMENT as the Perfect ONE.
This is what KJVO claim, with zero proof! Rather, we have 400 years of proof that the KJV is mistranslated, compared to its own Textus Receptus, which is why thousands of scholars in the mid-1800's spent their lives, collecting the original-language texts! Why, so many newer Bible translations were demanded, AFTER the KJV became popularly-known as being in error! Just Google on 'KJV mistranslation', and you'll find hundreds of websites showing them!
Not only the KJVO make such silly claims. The anti-Paul crowd and even many scholars who should know better, all have the goofy idea that only ONE set of Greek and Hebrew texts, or only ONE translation, should qualify for 'perfect' -- else God 'lost' his Word. It's crazy, how people 'lose faith' over this satanic demand there only be one copy, to qualify as perfect. Yeah, that's what all Muslims claim too. So then: we know the claim is coming from Satan, never God.
God lost nothing, Preserves Everything. In TEAMS. He didn't lose the 12 or 10 or any tribes of Jews. He didn't lose the Bible dates. He didn't lose even ONE of the original Words He gave Moses and all other Bible writers to write. So you can hear EXACTLY what Moses said, wrote; EXACTLY what David penned; EXACTLY what Christ said -- as if you were ALIVE THEN, when each one spoke! Because, there are many copies; many translations; and above all, 1Cor12:7, the Holy Spirit WITNESSES ('manifestation' is a mistranslation of 'disclosure') to what's really God's. Directly. So just keep using 1John1:9, ASK GOD, and then you'll know. Maybe not in 30 seconds, but keep plugging...
Golly, was I dumb or what: the 490 is psychological, not mathematical. That is to say, man goes through, on a macro level, a psychological adjustment phase. It starts out about 50 or 70 years prior to the 490's ending, as an exhaustion: man has tried all his ideas with whatever is then his concept of 'civilization', and they all fail. War ends the phase. Then a new one begins, as some other group of people or nation rises to fill the inevitable vacuum, and it lasts the remaining 70 or 50 years (approx. 120-160 total, 4 generations).
I can trace this pattern from Adam forward, though the first ending period is somewhat sketchy: I need to do a lot of homework on it.
Post-Cross, you can easily see the phases, since we have more data to work with. For example, the exhaustion of 630AD (which was 490 years after Aelia Capitolina, which came on a timeline exactly matching that of the 1st Temple destruction to the rebuilding of Jerusalem in Daniel 9). Then, Byzantium and Parthia exhausted each other, creating a vacuum which the Arabs then filled 8 years later (obeying Muhammed's 632AD (last) speech in Arabic being, 'go up to Jerusalem and kill all the Jews' -- you can't find this in published versions of his speech, but only in the madrassas, apparently). Sir John Glubb in his book, A Short History of the Arab Peoples made a point of this Arab invasion timing due to exhaustion, though of course he didn't say anything about the 490s or the Bible.
Each subsequent period has the same kind of exhaustion 'play', though with different actors. The next vacuum was filled with the Crusades. After that, the Reformation. And now we are in a new vacuum, so of course the Arabs arise again, and on time, just as they did to usher in the Crusades and the Reformation. That means we should be at war again, by about 2020, with the Arabs as the catalyst, much like the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand triggered WWI (due to the underlying patchwork of conflicting alliances, here the patchwork being alliances with and against, the Arab nations). China may come out the winner, this time.
I'll have to write a webpage on this, and make videos. I don't know if I can do it this year.
My coverage of the two anti-christs in the webpages is garbled. The essential idea is correct, but I wasn't clear on the verses which DISTINGUISHED the Jewish anti-christ from the Gentile one. As a result, the scenario in SatSpin.htm is incorrect. So too, are other sections. The essential ploy remains, to claim Christ has Returned. That idea is correct, in the webpages. But the 'flow' of the events is not correct. I have a lot of rewriting to do.
Bible verses distinguish between the two dictators in a manner which suggests quite a different flow of events.
So the correct 'flow' is that the JEWISH dictator pretends to be Christ, makes a pact with the Gentile 'little horn', so the latter obviously heralds the Jewish dictator, as Messiah? All this kicks off the Tribulation; so at its beginning, someone 'comes' claiming to be Christ. Real easy way to know when the Trib begins. In addition, from that beginning you've got:
No way to mistake it's the Trib. But people will. But at the mid-point, it gets tricky.
So what's the cause de guerre at the Trib mid-point? Does the Gentile suddenly call the Jewish 'messiah' a false prophet, and proclaim himself? In my webpages as currently written, (based on Revelation 13) I've sketched out the Trib as the Jew fronting the Gentile, portraying the latter as the one claiming to be Messiah. But that idea is odd, since the Messiah must BE a Jew, for the claim to be credible. So what would make the treaty break, since the false prophet fronts the Gentile? Or are there two false prophets? Is there a pseudo-Messiah at the beginning who gets wiped out by the Gentile, and then he himself has a Jewish front man?
The other problem is this: why would Daniel suddenly be talking about the false Jewish prophet, when all the other Daniel references are to the Gentile dictator? So the above revised scenario, really hinges on who is the 'king' in Daniel 11:36-40.If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them.
When Gorbachev came to power, I was alarmed. I prayed that God OUST him. I prayed also that God open up Bible for Russia. Then I forgot all about it. For at that time, I could barely spell "Jesus", having only gotten under daily Bible study in Houston in 1981.
Seven years after that prayer, and ON my birthday, God answered it. On that birthday, I was stuck in a hotel room in Houston, turned on the TV -- I didn't have one at home in Illinois, so this was a treat -- and that's how I learned Gorbachev was put under house arrest. Only THEN did I remember the prayer, and went into shock. Stayed up all night, even forgot to go to Bible class in Houston!
Now: did God answer that prayer because 'brainout' is special? Me ginoito, as Paul would say -- "Hell no!" as my pastor translated Paul's quip. GOD is special. Russia is special. And Gorbachev must be special, because God blessed him via the house arrest.
So here's the point: are we stingy with our prayers? Do we pray rightly? I bet not. Look at Daniel 9's prayer. First he uses our equivalent of 1John1:9, confessing sin. Then he prays to Father. Daniel is very organized about his prayer, and very specific, too. After all, the guy was in the equivalent of the Chaldean State Department, so you'd expect his prayer to be a legal brief. That was his natural style. And look how God answered him!
In Christ, we ARE Daniel. Anything we ask, He'll do. I made videos on that, in my 'Prayer' video playlist , click here.
Upshot: if you're not praying BIG, you're a stingy servant. The only way this satan's world can be blessed, is through prayer by us believers. So if we don't pray, we're to blame for what's wrong in the world.
Pray BIG and be sure you follow the Prayer Protocol (my videos explain it in more detail):
We are here to spend God's money. Profusely. Are we doing that? NO. So who is to blame? Us. Wealth is a good thing, if spent rightly. If not spent or spent wrongly, wealth is misused, and God will indeed take it away, giving it to others. Like, Alexander, a bi-sexual unbeliever who got drunk every night -- God gave him, all of the hoarded Persian gold. So if that's what God gives an unbeliever, how much more does He want to give.. us?
It's fake humility to say you shouldn't pray to God for personal needs, too. Other people are affected by your life. So pray BIG, for them and for you. Spend the unending supply of God's money as befits the extremely rich person IN CHRIST -- YOU!
Man, I wish I'd awakened to this purpose of prayer earlier. But no point ranting about that. Time to KOKO, Philippians 3:14! :)
Mirroring.htm and other webpages, but that will take awhile.
Sorry it took me some years to prove this out, but the explanation is gorgeous! Scholars have had problems explaining why Church began in 30AD yet Israel seemed to have her covenant operating, too. But that's not what the period 30-70AD represents, for Israel. It's a different kind of reimbursement which was ORIGINALLY dual in nature: Abraham was a Gentile himself, becoming a Jew via circumcision, 53.5 years before Gentile Time was due to end. For the Gentiles were to get the first 2100 years and the Jews the second 2100 years; but of course, negative volition cut short that time for the Gentiles, and also for the Jews.
But would GOD KEEP His Time promises anyway? Yep. That's what you learn, when you crunch the numbers of the above FAQ#6 and Mirroring. So I summarized the results of the number crunching, at the end of the white table in point AC of #6a. Again, if you merely search on "So now we balance back to Abraham" after you load the page, you'll go straight to that new section. You'll then see why God stresses the 3.5-year pieces, too. They are also due to the timing of Abraham's supermaturation.
Whew. It took years for me to balance this. Hope the analyisis saves you a lot of time!
Finally, I was able to take the long explanation in PassPlot.htm and make a video on proper Easter dating. Video simply shows the date count based on Mosaic Law. (I did not go through the chronology of Passion Week.) Click here to view it. I learned after the fact that the so-called 'church fathers' under Constantine deliberately conspired to CHANGE the date of 'Easter' to DISTANCE it from Passover, since the latter is Jewish. Can you believe that? Here's the video explaining that, from someone in Arizona: Click here to view it. (Beginning at five minutes, you'll hear him start talking about this.)
Of course, one of the problems is that the Jewish calendar misdates Firstfruits. Jewish calendar begins the Omer count the day after Passover's beginning. But Bible begins it piggybacked on Passover's ENDING: Leviticus 23:8 23:15 Deuteronomy 16:8-9 Numbers 28:25-26. Video lists those verses, but doesn't explain them. No explanation is needed, the text clearly relates 'sabbath' to the LAST MENTIONED (high) sabbath, which is the 7th day of Passover, not the first.
The other problem is anti-semitism in general. ALL of our current debates over Scripture stem from the fact that the RCC and the Reformers were anti-semitic, so THEY DID NOT RESEARCH BIBLE PROPERLY. So all that information in the OT which interprets how you read the NT, was lost, beginning about the time of Commodus. So anyone touting the 'church fathers' as spiritual giants, is a jackass. Sorry. Those 'church fathers were anti-semitic, so NO HOLY SPIRIT was in them. And that's how we don't know Christ's Birth and Death dates, How God Orchestrates Time, and hundreds of other doctrines which all are precedented in the OT. Disgraceful, our Christian 'record' of hating God!
Also, the meaning of YHWH is so easy to understand, I have to laugh at how we don't do our homework. A whole series of videos was done on this, but the last three deal specifically with THE NAME:
Google translate doesn't work well with Mozilla; results in a popup requesting Authenticate Password. So I had to remove the Google translate feature from my webpages. You can always have Google translate a page, by adding Google Translate to your browser.
The first section of Mirroring.htm was streamlined, with links updated to my Youtube videos. It should load faster, now.
That first section now sports a cleaner look, a shorter explanation, and should be easier to use. Now, the bliptv playlists are at the END of the page, but with links taking you to the end, within the first page section (as before). Hopefully that way the page will load faster. I don't know why bliptv playlists slow down page loading.
I'll have to trim the whole page, but at least the first section is easier to read. Yell at me if you see problems!
Mirroring.htm (Sunday, January 31, 2010) was updated to provide a link to my Youtube playlist which has the 'How God Orchestrates Time' videos. Sadly, Youtube has stopped allowing embedded players to show videos in HD. Maybe they will change back to allowing it, but until then, you can't see most of the information clearly off-Youtube. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=32D5DBC20BF4163F.
I've now done many more videos on how God Orchestrates Time than Mirroring shows; the above playlist link contains them all; however, some of the over-10-minute, relevant videos are linked in the video descriptions; so be sure to read them. These videos document Psalm 90's mapping, Isaiah 53's mapping (still an ongoing project, since now I can prove he's actually following the Time rules per CLAUSE in the Hebrew); they also walk the viewer through the basic rules for God's Time Grants using charts, rather than only the GeneYrs.xls worksheet. So maybe it will be easier to understand this complex doctrine which Bible routinely plots, but no one in Christendom understands. Also partly covered en route is Jewish Dispensationalism, which is based on their mis-accounting of Psalm 90. They miscount it, but they still have the right basic idea.
Sorry this is so complicated. When I get time (heh) I'll try to streamline ALL the doctrine's presentation, in one central locale!
Turns out that Isaiah 53's meter prophetically benchmarks time, per clause, not merely per paragraph. In fact, he piggybacks years like Israel piggybacks days, which results in fine-tune adjustments for beginning or end of the year. I had no idea the meter was meant to be that precise. But then, I didn't even know his Hebrew meter was deliberately organized as a time capsule, until I finished parsing it last year, as you know. (Well, you'd know if you'd been following this Isaiah 53 Meter Hypothesis saga for the last few years I've been in it.)
For example, Isaiah 53:7's second clause 'Yet He opens not his mouth' ends with the END of 516BC, which was when the 2nd Temple was dedicated, 3 Adar (see Ezrah 6:15). That's the end of the Jewish year.
Moses does the same thing with Psalm 90.
Every major event, including the fact that the Annunciation was also in Adar, is tracked. Very shocking stuff. I will need time to study the months more now. I have to also plot the tracking of David's life (since the parallel is the Last David), in the first 77 syllables. So future videos will address the above claims, so you can vet the astonishing then-future history, for yourself.
Also, ENGLISH retranslation of that meter for Isaiah 53. Download the Isaiah 53 retranslation Word doc here, and view in PrintPreview:
Landscape mode (2 pages): Isa53MeterTransInEnglishWide.doc. This Word doc shows the latest upgrade in translation (versus the video).
Portrait mode (3 pages, earlier translation): Isa53MeterTransInEnglish.doc
See my 'Isaiah 53 in Hebrew Meter' video description (link here: Isaiah 53 in Hebrew meter, English Words) for more explanation on this latest translation of Isaiah 53, including webpage links. The description contains other video links you'll want to see, if you want a full explanation of the translation.
Nice post and this post helped me alot in my college assignement. Thanks you for your information.

All of (NIV) Book of Daniel is read aloud, with occasional commentary and correction of translation. Most of the material is audio-only. Click here and then look at the video description to see all the links. I update the material with comments, below the video.
Click here for the new Chanukah series playlist. First video is an overview on how the scholars misread Bible so don't know the Bible says the Lord was born on Chanukah 4BC. Video description links to my older Chanukah link, which has more proof of the 'design' of His Chanukah birthdate than most people want. Videos 9-11 of the Chanukah playlist above quickly show how Daniel 8, Haggai 2, Matthew 2 and Luke 2 all tie together. So if you groaned when reading PassPlot.htm, you'll enjoy the quick review.
Videos 2-9 in the list shoot down the common myth that there was a 'star' of Bethlehem. Bible says it was an angel, not a star, with 'star' being used as a tongue-in-cheek title since Christ is born on the Feast of Lights, Dedication. Since that humor is missed -- even though Luke uses the same rhetoric as Matthew -- we missed the deft delineation of the Lord's Birthdate. Granted, Luke's rhetoric as always is finessed -- using the double definite articles in Luke 1:26 to stress the Annunciation was in Adar, hence a Chislev birthdate, and using phulassw for the shepherds rather than terew, since phulassw is the LXX equivalent for nazar, play on Nazareth. But Matthew isn't so refined: we should have figured out the Chanukah theme by his stress on everyone's DEDICATION, how the magi and Jerusalem couldn't SEE the 'star' (angel). And Matthew's dramatic reservation of 'Nazareth' (Dedication House) for the end of Chapter 2 is a dead giveaway. Oh well.
Next, click here for the latest Yapping Most High playlist. It's posted on Youtube through the end of Episode 5, now. Episodes 6-8 (really seven more videos) will post sometime next week, probably next Friday or Saturday.
Happy Chanukah-Christ Mass!
Click here for the first of the Yapping Most High videos in Youtube, a new series of high-theology commentary. Stuff the theologians got wrong all these years is informally covered. The first 8 Parts are on how God's Personality has been misdefined by theologians all this time, because they misdiagnosed God's Sovereignty. God is what He WILLS to be, Exodus 3:14 wordplay on His Name as Absolute Existence.
Calvinists claim to uphold Sovereignty but denude it, just like the Catholics before them. But with a little cogitating and remembrance of key Bible verses, you can readily see that God's Attributes are a product of His Will, not the other way around.
To date, Parts 1-4 are uploaded. Each week a new Part will be uploaded to Youtube. Future video topics will be on God's 'Software' (Bible in your head), God's Timing (a doctrine unknown in Christendom and misdefined in Judaism); Freedom in eternity (i.e., why we will never freely sin again), and other conundra which have long been poorly debated.
Sorry to be so critical, but it's time we stopped fighting in the theological playpen, and got into the higher topics, so to really learn GOD, not my-demonation-is-better-than-your-demonation.
Update on Bible Hebrew Meter links.

Handy synopsis of the 'positions' various scholars have taken over the centuries. Click Here for another one. Thus you get a quicker handle on the scholarship and its conclusions, over the past 300 years.
It's really sad that scholars keep on applying EXTRA-BIBLICAL standards to Bible's Hebrew meter, as if it had no standards of its own. That's why we're missing the ton of doctrine and Bible's dating proof: we won't let the Bible speak for itself.
YES, DUMMY you count the syllables, and NO DUMMY it doesn't matter what the stress is, BECAUSE DUMMY Bible uses meter to communicate TRUTH, be it the truth of the number of years in the future, the truth of the date a thing is written, the truth of How God Orchestrates Time, or the truth about the DOCTRINAL MEANING of Bible's set times like 7 years, 40 years, 70 years, etc. We aren't looking for that, though. Oh No, we insist on using European standards of poetry; and when we find the Bible doesn't fit those LATER standards, we deem it to have no discernible meter.
What a crime. Sorry to be so harsh, but Bible is meant for everyone to understand, and IN the original languages, because the Holy Spirit can cause you to learn them like any academic, if you keep using 1John1:9. So natural pronunciation and yes syllables, wordplay, and all manner of mnemonics would be used. But absent 1John1:9, even the smartest scholars (deservedly respectable, hard workers, geniuses, even) can't figure it out!
In Youtube, I just began a new series named Royal Family of God: the Book of Hebrews. You can visit my 'brainouty' page and see the first episode, and if you choose the Angelic Conflict playlist, the series is there, with the first five episodes loaded (through 5b). Click here for the introduction videos for the series. The exegetical videos will start in Episode 6. I plan to go through the entire book, Chapter by Chapter, to show the Angelic Trial language and features, which cause the covenantal change (to Church).
The fifth episode had to make a detour into the thorny area of dating the Book of Hebrews. Thorny, because there is a lot of bad scholarship on the topic, especially in Wikipedia. While doing that, it was necessary to explain that the Gospel of Mark is truly 68AD also, part of a four-book rollout God made in the Year of the Four Emperors, beginning when Nero executed Paul.
Since there is a lot of bad scholarship on Mark's Gospel also, but I was covering the dating of the Book of Hebrews, I didn't have much time to say why we can prove Mark's Gospel is QUOTING and PLAYING ON the first two Gospels, of Matthew and Luke (respectively). Of course, that's the opposite of what the Gospel Q proponents claim.
Yeah, and you can prove their claim wrong from within Mark's Gospel itself. So, after the Book of Hebrews videos are done, I'll have to do some exegetical videos on Mark's Gospel to show how you can prove he's quoting and playing on, Matthew and Luke to INDICT the 68AD generation, and thus explain why the Temple is destroyed.
It will matter to do this, not only to show the finessed word games Mark plays with the text (i.e., elongating the phrasing in Mark 13:24, versus Matthew 24:29, depicting the delay due to Church, or his Mark 13:22 tweak via omission of megala versus Matthew 24:24, and substitution of apoplanaw) -- but also maybe to find out who wrote Hebrews.
Might not get to it until next year. First of the Mark series is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wuPkEWlMls. As I have time, I'll add the promised exegetical videos, going in order from Mark 1:3 forward. BibleWorks has a Synoptics Tool which thus allows all parallel passages to be viewed simultaneously on-screen, so I'll record with it. Serves as a handy way to see why Mark CHANGES the wording in Matthew and Luke, and what NEW information those CHANGES give us. Thus you know his is the third Gospel, not the first or even the second. That's why it's so short!
Every 490 or 560 years since Adam, the last 120 years of it are a voting period with conditions like that of the Flood's, even though God promised never to destroy the world by flood of water, again. The Flood is the paradigm of the voting warning. You can trace its import pan-Bible. We are entering yet another 120-year warning period, beginning next year, 2010. So the 'end' everyone is expecting, isn't necessarily the Rapture, but rather the end of the pre-warning period. So the warning period is the 'end', just as it always is, on schedule.
The videos are an adjunct to the How God Orchestrates Time video and associated webpage, Mirroring.htm. Until a few days ago, I wasn't sure of the 120's beginning and ending benchmarks. So now I made videos on these, which are available on Youtube, but clearer versions of them can be downloaded from brainout.net, as follows. The PassSalt1-4 are only available as downloads, and walk the viewer through the GeneYrs.xls worksheet.
Flood Chronology videos and Word docs which came out of the Pass the Salt research, focus on whether (and I'm not sure) the extreme dating detail shows a pattern which is the precedence for the Hebrew calendar: NoahBday.avi (http://www.brainout.net/NoahBday.avi), a 25 minute video tracing the Flood Chronology. It's huge, 170MB, might take 2 hours to download. FloodChrono.doc, a two-page chart with notes on Flood Chronology. Makes it easy to see patterns. HEBCalConverter.xls, a worksheet plotting the seeming Noahic precedence upon the Hebrew calendar, including major historical dates Bible furnishes. Idea is to see orchestration of time in a recurring annual pattern. It's unfinished. If the link doesn't work, that means I'm in the middle of revising the calendar, so try again an hour or so later.
The Hebrew calendar in the Bible is NOT like the one Judaism uses. The days are always 30, except for Adar, and the priestly courses were patterned upon them; Adar is intercalated every year, in Bible accounting, so God never accounts multiple years as lunar (precedence for Bible accounting is BIRTHDAYS, and Israel's birthday is the Exodus, so the calendar ends up solar, not lunar, adjusted in the last month of the sacred year). Details on this are provided in and PassPlot.htm.
For more information on how to use the spreadsheet and on God's TimeGrants, see the Genesis videos beginning here with Episode 8c1. Just click on that episode once the page loads, hit the fullscreen icon, and all 14 of the 8c videos will begin playing in order. You'll see each of the Grantees per the Bible, and will see the interplay of the historical 490 or 560 periods with their own personal grants, as well as learn how to navigate the worksheet.
For demonstration on how I got the Bible dates (with attendant verses), see brainoutFAQ.htm#6a.
You can view the new series of videos showing why the KJV-only movement is a rehash of the satanic conspiracy to kidnap Bible which Satan played in the 2nd century AD. I made a video playlist outside of Youtube: click here.
VPI is central to the debate. What is inspired? Does the media have to be preserved, and do all the words have to be letter perfect? Of course not. But ignorant people and even some who claim to be scholars, mistake Inspiration as having to be perfect in FORM, rather than perfect in MESSAGE. That's why the KJVO can get a foothold: the movement preys upon the mistaken idea that the MESSAGE needs to be in perfect form, for the message to be perfectly preserved.
We all know immediately that's not true, for Perfect God resides IN us, while we ourselves remain imperfect. So too, with the texts. The MESSAGE is inspired and inerrant DESPITE the scribal errors, the many late copies, etc. So the true textual critical task, is to learn the Divine Message in every word of every verse. Somewhere among all the mss, those words will be correctly preserved. But not, in only ONE ms. And we don't need the words to be LETTER perfect, to know what the words are.
So, the series covers basics on textual criticism, in the first four parts. Helps to first define the meaning of "inspired".
I had to do these videos due to KJV-only user harrassment. So the videos first introduce in cartoon format the very obvious fact that since English was not a language when the Bible was written, God's Word cannot be in English. At best, the English is a translation of His Inspired Word, when it is accurate. Then the videos go on to show the evil of the KJV-only movement, which actually seeks to REPLACE the Inspired Word with (an easily-disprovable claim of) the KJV, as the inspired text. For the KJV-only movement makes essentially the same claim as ISLAM for the Koran, so that parallel is explored in the series.
The spokespersons of this movement cannot even read KJV English properly, let alone the original-language texts. So that fact is demonstrated in the video series, as well.
Further videos go into isagogics and exegesis. For example, how we got the Textus Receptus, its errors, and a VERY simple primer on the meaning of textual criticism. Next, exegetical videos show the rather unfortunate tendency of KJV and other translations, to malign God. This maligning is obviously unintentional. Two remarkable characteristics pervade mistranslation: a) very poor scholarship characterizes the mistranslated verses for CENTURIES, with no one bothering to FIX the translations; and b) the translations clearly malign God, even if you didn't know the verses were mistranslated.
Yet no one bothers to investigate, and instead the same bad errors -- mostly from the KJV! -- are copied in the newer translations, even until now? That bespeaks a callous attitude to God's Word, and a desire to cater to popular opinion, instead. A popular opinion, which cherishes its OLD and BAD translations, rather than the truth.
This is the worst blasphemy in Christendom. We will be held accountable for it in our computer generation, if it is not immediately redressed. Hence the video series, so that I won't be held accountable for silence.
So now, I really CAN go on a vacation from video-making, for a month or two.
I'm going on a video-making VACATION for awhile, but managed to get done enough of the basics videos to last most viewers until I can come back. The James 2 videos are really good, especially the last 12 of them, link to the playlist is in my previous post.
Four others turned out better than I expected: these are: my 'Why Hell' videos (2, linked) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNIqZW5YRB4), 'Predestined to FREEDOM' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpIzcDGd4eU), and 'Salvation Components' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJYCJg1hijw).
Youtube forces a change in channel design beginning July 15th. The new design is less attractive, but in some ways more useful. You can click on its "Uploads" to get only a scroll-down list of my videos in reverse chronological order. I can't sort them alphabetically. Still, that's better than nothing. You can also scroll through only the "Playlists". I've categorized all my videos into playlists which begin with "brainout's" so hopefully one day Youtube will put them back in alphabetical order. I have many playlists categorized by topic which are made by other Youtubers, too. Hope you enjoy them.
I'll be responding to email, comments on my videos, etc. But for an undefined period, won't be making new videos. Got to do secular work, now. :)
"Faith without works is dead!" chirps many an ignorant Christian, thinking that James 2:17 and 2:20 are talking about salvation. Well, I got tired of hearing this abuse of James. So finally did 22 videos exegeting the relevant words -- live from BibleWorks on screen -- to prove that James is talking about Spiritual MATURATION (the theme of his letter, 1:3 and 1:12), not salvation. You can view the playlist in Youtube: here.
The last 12 videos are most helpful, because I color-coded his rhetorical style, and especially his penchant for changing between the common, anarthrous, and monadic use of the (nee: definite) article, to make his trenchant points.
My pastor always harped on the need to track the article and prepositions, when deciphering Bible text, how they are used as tracking devices. Yeah, and if you do that, you can tell exactly when the Lord was born and died -- so why don't we know that? For the same reason as we routinely misuse James! No one cares what Bible REALLY says, it's only what popular or respected people say, that matters!
It becomes very easy to see how he condemns human works in favor of Divine Works, when you see how he uses the (nee: definite) article. Can prove the chirpers wrong in maybe 10 minutes' scanning.
Rather than post at Youtube, I'll post here. Actually, I looked for a direct email contact on your web pages and didn't see one.
Just so you know, I grew up as a taper. I know you'll know what that means.
I've been exegeting James again for a project I'm working on and as of yesterday I’m having a few new thoughts about it.
I just watched your introductory video and part of your 1/22 video regarding James 1:3. Have you ever done some in-depth study on "dokimion" and its cognates, especially to see how they are used and therefore possibly defined by the Text itself? Also, the Lexicons denote that this word can be viewed in 3 ways: the means of testing, the act of testing, and the result of testing. So it seems we need to be careful with it as you are explaining about "pistis". And, did you note that "katergazetai" might also be taken in a passive sense? And, did you have any thought on the placement of "humon"?
My concern for the translation is that the way the English versions are taking this, I see a potential conflict with Rom 5:4 and 1Pet 1:7.
Interesting website. Spent the better part of the day reading some of your dating concepts. So much data...
9/25/09, 8:56 PM
To Anonymous: as for dokimion, it ties to Romans 12:1-3 (Paul maybe alludes back to James). The root: test for gemstone or true metal (gold or silver), vs. fakes. See Thayer & Bauer Danker lexicons.
Re katergazetai, wouldn't surprise me if all three ideas were employed: reflexive, passive, deponent. :)
On humon, stressing Doctrine in YOU? James could have omitted the pronoun.
On Rom5:4, another testing-for-genuineness root meaning of dokime. Paul harps on it, ever since 1Cor3; it's a Pauline fav; compare to James 1:12.
1Peter 1:7's dokimion stresses test-for-gem/gold-silver content metaphor.
Recall what Colonel said re chara? Unalloyed happiness?
If you get something different, I'd be grateful to hear it!
BTW, I had to vet the Colonel's longstanding teaching re Blessing By Association; timeline turned out to be a vindication of that doctrine.

The playlist in my TULindex.htm webpage was upgraded with more videos. These cover the creepy parallels between Calvinism and Islam, where Calvin went wrong, plus an Epilogue on Ephesians 2:8-9 comparing his commentary to what Calvinists say (both differ), with the actual Greek text of those verses. For some Calvinists misuse toutos, claiming it represents both the gift of salvation and the gift of faith. That is grammatically impossible, as was noted for centuries prior.
But I'm discovering that Calvinists are routinely dishonest in their handling of Scripture. I've recently lost respect for Calvinists, frankly. It would be so easy to fix what's wrong in their doctrines, but they are the new 'catholics' in the five centuries after the Reformation -- and are equally stubborn. Time for a 2nd Reformation.
Click here for a 3-page Word doc summarizing the evil of Calvinism, which I read in my Contra Calvinism videos beginning with #9. The first of those videos is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iiue3kK0WQE. Each video in the series has a video below it to continue the series, or you can watch the whole playlist, click here. For the associated webpage which contains those videos, click here.
I knew Lordship Salvation was evil, a fake gospel saving no one; but I didn't realize HOW evil until a few days ago. Not sure I want to spend more time on it, since the recognition of that false gospel is fairly represented on the web.
You know, when I first began this inquiry into my pastor's claim that Believers Buy Time, a doctrine he's taught since the 1960's -- I had no idea it would lead to the massive disclosure from Bible about God's Orchestration Rules for Time. I didn't know the doctrine was already in the Talmud, and of course I didn't know about the Apochryphal books of Enoch and Jubilees.
I didn't know ANYTHING, except that my pastor taught from Genesis 5 and Daniel 9. When proofing just those two chapters, I kept on making accounting mistakes like the 'scholars' do, trying to find what human king would have decreed the rebuilding -- and found none that fit. The conventional argument that Artaxerxes was that king, didn't wash. Sir Robert Anderson's long-revered book The Coming Prince, also didn't wash. The timeline continued to be off.
Finally I gave up and asked God to cause me to find a balanced accounting, via Daniel 9. Mirroring.htm resulted from it; the entire 490+70+490=1000+50 resulted from it, all sheer math which any accountant can come up with. Backed up with many Bible verses, of course.
That was back in May 2004. So I didn't know that other pastors were working on the same thing, and I certainly didn't know Isaiah 53's Hebrew meter employed the same 490+70+490=1000+50 construct; and I didn't know that Psalm 90 used it, with Isaiah playing off Moses. I learned the Isaiah 53 meter, in spring 2008; I just learned the Psalm 90 meter, a month ago.
So imagine the surprise, when yesterday vetting to see WHO ELSE may have known all this, I find curious references by Jews on the internet to TALMUDIC interpretations of this same doctrine. Their interpretations are off (or expressed in ways that make them seem off), but the idea is there: God treats Time like a balance sheet.
Rambam knew something of this. So did other rabbis before and after him. So now my task is to learn what they knew, and just how different was their understanding. For I can prove the 490+70+490=1000+50 from BIBLE; but can't yet find out, when this information stopped being known.
That's the task in which I'm engaged now. So I updated brainoutFAQ.htm #6b to show what I learned in Talmud so far (no source cites, since you can Google for that). And, what I'll test next.
By the way, I also updated that brainoutFAQ to add a #2a which serves as a doctrinal statement of beliefs. If you've been reading my pages for awhile, you don't need this. But if you are a new reader, it might help you.
Psalm 90's video series has 5 new videos with "Epilogue" in the title in Youtube. These videos demonstrate something I didn't know when starting the series: that Moses accounts time SABBATICALLY.
The first of the Youtube Epilogue videos is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7RL7HzqNOY the others are linked below it; the video descriptions have links to the associated webpages. Or, you can see the whole series, click here and scroll down to the third video player you see: Isa53trans.htm. Pretty shocking stuff.
BibleHebrewMeter.htm"BibleHebrewMeter.htm is a new webpage dedicated to showing the Old Testament's poetic metering rules. Apparently the 'scholars' can't find them. Moses set up the rules, in Psalm 90. Isaiah plays off those rules, in Isaiah 53. So the webpage demonstrates both passages in video format, since the rules are best learned by watching them in action, live in both passages. Astonishing stuff.
You should be able to test the rules with any OT Hebrew poetic passage, especially if Messianic. Moses would be the standard, I'd guess -- so I'd expect that the other prophets (like Isaiah) 'spoke' to Moses as a 'hub'. Not sure that's true, but there should be a pattern.
Now, in the page I tried to codify the meaning of those rules, but my explanation needs much improvement. If you can think of anything to improve or add to the description, please make a webpage of your own and tell me the link, or send me an email with your suggestions, and I'll post them to the page. I can't do this alone. There are too many passages to go through and analyse.
At the end of the webpage is a listing of links to the major voices in the Does-Bible-Hebrew-poetry-have-meter debate. None of them seem to know these very obvious rules. I can't figure out why, except to say that they are so busy having to argue with each other, they don't have time to use Occam's Razor and just parse the verses IN the Bible for themselves, or recite the verses, which immediately GIVE you the meter. Since we have the consonants, it doesn't matter that the Massoretes added their vowel points, etc. Since we have the consonants, we don't need to worry about accentuation or Western standards of 'meter'.
IN SHORT, LET THE BIBLE TELL YOU ITS OWN METERING SYSTEM. Then, be prepared for a shock at Divine Symmetry and Prophetic use of Meter as a Future Calendar counting down to Messiah.
Isaiah 53 is drawn from Psalm 90, both in meter and in content, constituting a kind of 'antiphony', showing how God will fulfill the Psalm 90 prayer, through Messiah. It's really shocking, though technical, how Moses' Psalm and Isaiah 53, interact.
For the Youtube playlist of these videos, click here. The playlist is also now embedded within my Isa53trans.htm
The metering symmetry in Isaiah 53 is designed to be predictive, but I had no idea it was based on and in answer to, Psalm 90. Very shocking stuff.
The reason why there are TWO Tribulational sevens (the first one playing 64-70AD), is demonstrated via this comparison. Also noteworthy, you can prove that Isaiah counts BACKWARDS from a KNOWN ENDING FOR TIME (when the Millennium was to begin) to derive his meter for Isaiah 53:1-12. So now Daniel 9 has a long history of interpretation you can prove, beginning from Moses' Psalm 90. webpage.
http://www.brainout.net is my new domain. All of the webpages were ported over to it. If you still go to the old geocities.com address, you will be instead taken to the new domain. It has unlimited storage, so eventually the videos will be uploaded to the new domain.
Why the change? Geocities announced it will stop webhosting sometime later this year.
If you've read PassPlot.htm, you know that Easter really occurred on April 6th. Bad Bible scholarship to cover up the Catholic incompetence reigns for centuries, and of course the Bible remains the casualty. Better to respect men's traditions than to respect Bible. So here was the addition to brainoutFAQ.htm #4:
"But no one consults the Bible. Oh no. The Bible's own plain text isn't good enough -- gotta have some 'expert' bless it with a meaning. Never mind, only the Holy Spirit is the Expert and the human 'experts' don't consult Him. That's why we can't count to three. That's why respectable scholars using their credentials, get away with IGNORING the "nights" term in both Matt12:40 and Jonah 1:17, blithely saying that oh the three days are partial. Oh yeah? How are you going to get to the third day, until two nights have FULLY PASSED? And until that third day has fully passed, how you gonna get to the third NIGHT?
Of course, if you did the count properly, you begin Nights First, and then you get the Truth as God told it to you: Wednesday NIGHT, Thursday NIGHT, Friday NIGHT -- thus now ThursDAY and FriDAY have passed, so now SaturDAY can occur. Thus ends the three days, and ON that Saturday AFTER SUNDOWN, begins the Jewish first day of the week. But the experts who don't care at all about Bible but care a whole lot about human approbation, will sell their souls to chop out the Word the Word gave us, so not to offend any of his fellow apostate humans. Humans have money, see. God's currency doesn't count down here."
