The Merovingian Heresy Exposed: Winged Prince is Proclaimed “Savior of the World”


On February 23, 2007, I was interviewed for a third time on the Big Finale Show with host Bruce Collins, which was broadcast via the Internet. This was the second of two interviews concerning my book “The Language of God in Prophecy”. This Blog post contains my book research related to the interviews as well as links to both interviews concerning my book on prophecy.

To listen to both interviews, they are archived at my Pillar of Enoch Ministry web site. To listen to these MP3 files, you can click on them and they should open in a separate browser window. Or you can right click on the links below and download the files to your PC, then open them in your PC Media Player. Please note that the second interview listed below that was recorded in February of 2007 is the one that discussed the information in the book excerpt and new article reproduced below:

February 2007, 60 min. Interview about the book:
"The Language of God in Prophecy"
with Author Helena Lehman - Part 2

In addition to the two interviews linked to above, an excerpt from my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” is provided below. This material is only a small section of the book, which covers many other aspects of Bible Prophecy, especially as related to the United States of America. This section from Chapter 10 of the book focused on the possibility that Prince Charles or one of his sons could be the Antichrist. The article following my interview links and book excerpt toward the end of this article is the one that host Bruce Collins pointed me toward at the end of my February 2007 interview with him. It supports the suppositions made in my Book: “The Language of God in Prophecy,” where I point to Prince Charles of Wales as possibly being the Antichrist - or, if nothing else - a leader of the Illuminati. The excerpt below has been updated to reflect the revised book information published in 2011 that includes a mention of Barack Obama.

I’ve also uploaded the two photos of the statue of Prince Charles that the article reprinted at the bottom of this blog post mentions to my Pillar of Enoch Ministry blog. Here is the close up of the statue, and the photo of the entire statue appears at the top of this article:


Now, here is the excerpt from Chapter 10 my copyrighted book “The Language of God in Prophecy,” (http://pillar-of-enoch.com/Language_of_God_in_Prophecy/) about Prince Charles. (IMPORTANT NOTE: this article was updated in 2013, long after this article was written, which was in 2007. The following is therefore from the new revision of my book that was originally published in 2006):
******************************************************

The Antichrist: Heir to the Throne of England/Judah?

(NOTE: This is copyrighted Material by Helena Lehman.

The mysterious carriers of the bloodline that supposedly originated with Christ are said to have married into the existing royal lines throughout Europe, eventually producing the Habsburg Dynasty in Austria. Subsequently, these rulers may have married into the British royal line. This supposition can obviously lead to an intriguing question: “Are the members of the British Royalty descendents of the Royal line of David, as well as of the bloodline of Christ?”

If the members of the British Royalty can prove this to the world, one of them could also certainly claim to be the Messiah of the Jews, as well as the Christian Messiah reincarnated. If Prince Charles of Wales, for example, were a descendant of King David, and a descendant of Christ, his claim to be the Messiah would seem legitimate to many - especially if he could produce miracles similar to those that Yahshua performed during His First Advent. Chillingly, the Bible says that the Antichrist will be able to produce counterfeit miracles in order to deceive the whole world. In the following Scripture, the Antichrist is identified as “the lawless one:” 
“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing… because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie.” - 2 Thess. 2:9-11 (NIV) 
Is it possible that someone in the British Royalty will one day claim to be a descendent of Christ? Could they promote the universal acceptance of a pretender, or Antichrist from among their royal ranks that will claim to be Christ? The answer to these questions may be encoded into the prophetic allegorical Language of God in the Book of Revelation. As already shown, some of Revelation’s symbolic language seems tied to the British Royal Coat of Arms. In fact, its unicorn, lion and dragon-like symbols suggest that the British Royalty is tied to the Tribe of Joseph, the Welsh descendents of the Tribe of Dan, and the false kingdom of the Antichrist represented by the Beast out of the Sea. This strongly suggests that the destiny of Great Britain is not tied to the righteous One-Horned Ram of Enoch, but to the One-Horned Goat of Daniel, and Babylon the Great.

There may also be good reason to believe that the person who will become the Antichrist is alive today. In fact, he may be the prominent public figure known as Prince Charles of Wales. Though this suggestion may seem an outright impossibility to some, there are several good reasons to make this connection. First of all, like Revelation’s Beast out of the Sea, the Red Dragon of Wales is seen repeatedly on the heraldic device for Prince Charles of Wales. Coupled with the lion and unicorn symbolism on the heraldic devices for both the Prince of Wales, and the British Crown, this composite red dragon suggests that the United Kingdom represents Revelation’s “Beast out of the Sea,” and will be the source of the Antichrist who will claim dominion over Israel.

In addition to the Welsh red dragon’s direct heraldic ties to Prince Charles of Wales, the name “Charles,” and the number 666 are unequivocally connected to the Antichrist in the Book of Revelation: 
“Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” - Rev. 13:18 (NKJ) 
In the above Scripture, the Beast (i.e.: Antichrist) is identified as “a man” whose “number” is 666. The numerical value of the letters in Prince Charles’ official name and title “Prince Charles of Wales” has been calculated, and it unfailingly adds up to the number 666 when both Hebrew Gematria, and English numerology are applied. Furthermore, the name “Charles” means “man” or “manly.” The number 666 is therefore the number of “a man,” or Charles!

This suggests that Prince Charles is connected to the heart, feet, and eyes of “a man” spoken of in Daniel 7:3, 4, and 8 in relation to four beasts from the sea, which are connected to the one Beast out of the Sea in Revelation 17:1-5, upon whom the Harlot sits! Not only that, but Prince Charles’ father is Prince Phillip, who was born Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark. Ominously, the kingdom of the Antichrist is identified with Greece in Zechariah 9:13, and Daniel 8:21, and also with the Tribe of Dan, and the word “Denmark” means “Dan’s Mark,” or “Dan’s Seed!” It is said that, just as Christ is the “Seed” of the Woman in the messianic prophecy of Genesis 3:15, the Antichrist is the “seed” of the serpent, which is an allusion to the Nephilim, or Anakim Giants who survived the Great Flood! In that regard, has anyone ever noted how tall Prince Phillip is in comparison to Queen Elizabeth?

Other clues in the Bible that point to the princely identity of the Antichrist are the references in the Book of Daniel to “the prince who is to come” and “a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty:” 
“And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.” - Daniel 9:26 (NKJ) 
“He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue.” - Daniel 11:21 (NIV) 
Prince Charles is undeniably a Prince, just as Daniel states that the Antichrist will be. In addition, Prince Charles has been denied the right to rule as the King of the United Kingdom, which is most definitely a kingdom of the north. He therefore has not been given the honor due him as a Royal heir. This is just as Daniel intimates about the Antichrist, who in the eleventh chapter of Daniel is the uncrowned leader of the North who takes over the kingdom of the King of the North, and attacks, and subdues the King of the South (See Daniel, Chapter 11).

This prophecy in Daniel was already initially fulfilled once, where the Kings of the North were the kings of Persia and Syria, and the Kings of the South were the Ptolemaic Pharaohs of Egypt up until the time of Antiochus Epiphanes. The King of Syria, Antiochus Epiphanes ruled from 175 to 164 BC, during which time he invaded Jerusalem, and desecrated the Second Temple mount by erecting the “abomination that causes desolation” – a pagan altar to the false god Zeus. As a Hellenist, Antiochus also tried to force the Jews in Israel to abandon their religious beliefs and festivals, and to embrace a Greco-Roman way of life under pain of death. However, the Jews soon united under the leadership of Judah the Maccabee, rebelled against Antiochus, and defeated him.

Soon after this, the priests of Israel cleansed the Temple, and lit the golden menorah therein when it was re-dedicated to Yahweh. However, there was a shortage of oil in the realm due to the war, so there was only one day’s worth of oil to fill the seven lamps of the menorah. Nonetheless, the Temple menorah’s flames continued to burn for eight days on that one day’s worth of oil, at which time new oil was found. Afterward, the Chanukah menorah, or Chanukiah was created to commemorate this miraculous event. The reason this is being mentioned here is simple. The events surrounding that first Chanukah are a prophetic window into the future reign of the Antichrist, his desecration of the Third Temple, and the subsequent rebellion, and victory of the Jews against him. Their victory, however, will not occur until they accept the glorious leadership of Yahshua their Messiah at His coming return!

This brings us back to our discussion of the Chanukiah menorah in earlier chapters of this book, and how they appear to mark the prophetic unfolding of Judeo-Christianity’s New Covenant with Christ. Isn’t it uncanny that these nine-branched menorahs also symbolize the everlasting victory that Christ and all His risen saints will win over evil and death in eternity? This suggests that, as followers of the one true Son of God and Messiah, that we ought to remember the importance of Chanukah, along with the seven biblically prescribed feasts of Israel. See my book “The Language of God in Humanity” for more about the prophetic importance of Chanukah, as well as the Feast of Purim, which celebrates Queen Ester’s heroic intervention for her people during their Babylonian captivity.

Returning to my interpretation of Daniel, the latter portion of Daniel’s prophecy clearly appears to relate not only to the time of Antiochus and the Maccabees, but also to events during the Great Tribulation. Many scholars believe that the Antichrist - in mimicry of Antiochus - will desecrate a Third Temple to Yahweh that will be built in Jerusalem during, or just before the Great Tribulation. Daniel’s Chapter 11 prophecy of the evil person who invades Israel, orders this desecration of holy ground, and sets himself up as a king and a god is therefore likely meant to have a dual fulfillment.
Interestingly, Prince Charles touts a lineage that links him by blood to Mohammed, the Prophet of Islam, and one of Prince Charles‘ honorary titles is: “Friend of Islam.” Furthermore, it appears that the Radical Islamic kingdoms of Jordan and Saudi Arabia may be the kingdoms of Daniel’s King of the South. If so, could it be that these Islamic kingdoms are being secretly controlled by Prince Charles and Princes Phillip as the uncrowned Kings of the North? If so, Prince Charles or his son William could be viewed as the Mahdi or Muslim Anti-Messiah that Islamic prophecies suggest will unite all Arabia, work out a false peace treaty between Islamic Fundamentalists, the Industrialized West, and Israel, and then later attack and attempt to destroy Israel.

This possible connection of the Antichrist with Islam has also found a partial fulfillment with US President Barack Obama, who grew up in the predominantly Muslim nation of Indonesia, and who shows great affection for, and support of Muslim people and beliefs. Chillingly, US President Barack Obama also has Muslim ties through his Kenyan father and Indonesian step father that go even deeper than Charles’ do. Could this qualify him to play a subservient but similar role to Prince Charles during the Tribulation period?

Could Obama be the forerunner to the Antichrist, just as I supposed in an article written before Obama was elected in 2008? (See the Free Articles section at my POEM Ministry web site at http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/). In that sense, could Obama be like the modern anti-type of John the Baptist? This certainly seems to be the case, since Obama supported the Radical Muslim rebels in Syria and Egypt. His also supports the unrest in the Middle East that was instigated by Radical, Militant Muslims that hate and seek to destroy the once Christian West. Encouraged by Obama’s acquiescence, this has led Muslim Radicals in Syria and elsewhere to be bold in their heavy persecution of many Christians throughout the Middle East.

However, though President Barack Obama has proven to be a significantly malevolent leader during the Tribulation, he doesn’t have nearly as many credentials linking him to the role of Antichrist as Prince Philip and Prince Charles through their connection to the European Union and British Commonwealth. This, coupled with many other factors, tie Prince Philip, Prince Charles, his sons Prince William and Prince Henry, and the British Monarchy as a whole to Daniel’s “prince who is to come,” and Revelation’s Beast from the Sea. For example, in the Book of Revelation, we are told that we will be able to identify the Beast from the Sea by “seven kings:” 
“There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.” - Rev. 17:10-12 (NKJ) 
In regard to this prophecy’s “seven kings,” there have been seven emperors named Charles who ruled over the Holy Roman Empire. These seven kings represent the seven heads of the Beast that the Harlot rides in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 12:3, 13:1, 17:3-9) But what of the beast who is one of these seven, but also the eighth? The answer lies with another Charles who is very prominent in today’s world political scene. His name is Prince Charles of Wales. Prince Charles is a direct descendent of Charles VI of Austria, who was Holy Roman Emperor from 1711 to 1740, and the sixth Charles of the seven who ruled. The seventh Charles - Charles Albert of Belgium - only ruled for three years before he died.

Interestingly, the capital of Belgium - Brussels - happens to be the current capital of the European Union, and is now the European center of the world financial empire that may already be secretly ruled by the Antichrist. Now, if Prince Charles becomes the leader of a united Europe, he will be the eighth Charles to rule over the Roman Empire. If Prince Charles does, he will fulfill the prophecy: “And the beast… is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven…” (Rev. 17:11). Even more eerily, as if in confirmation of his possible role as the Antichrist, Prince Charles was born in 1948 - the same year that Israel became a nation. This unequivocally ties him to “the prince who is to come” in Daniel’s Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks as applied to the year 1948!

Incidentally, Prince Charles and his mother Queen Elizabeth II are purportedly two of the richest people in the world - with combined net assets totaling billions of dollars. Furthermore, as one of the major proponents and investors in economic and financial globalization agencies, Prince Charles has been identified as one of the so-called Illuminati who now rule the world financially. If Prince Charles were to take over as the leader of the European Union, he would be the eighth Charles to rule over Europe, and also one of the seven Holy Roman Emperors by his relationship to King Charles VI. In addition, through the European Union and British Commonwealth of Nations, he could rule over a group of nations that has even greater financial and military power than the ancient Roman Empire had. This would make Prince Charles the richest man in the world by virtue of the assets he would control.

If this claim sounds impossible, or even laughable, it did to me at first as well. That is, until I really contemplated all the facts disclosed in Monte Judah’s well-researched article from the “Yavoh!” newsletter published by Lion and Lamb Ministries. Monte’s entire article is available to read at my web site. (Open PDF article by Monte Judah: http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/Prince-Who-Is-To-Come.pdf)

This article gives many startling and believable reasons why Prince Charles (or one of his sons) is a viable candidate for the dubious title of Antichrist. Furthermore, it carefully explains how the numerical value of Prince Charles’ official name and title are found. However, for those who are hungry to delve deeper than Monte’s article, detailed information on this subject is found in the fascinating book “Antichrist, and a Cup of Tea” by Tim Cohen.

This interpretation of Scripture is not meant to infer that there are not many saved people living in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. On the contrary, many people in the United Kingdom, its Commonwealth nations, and Europe love Yahshua, are His born-again disciples, and will be highly regarded in Yahshua’s Millennial Kingdom. However, the implications clearly point to the Royalty of Great Britain as the future leaders among the many nations that will represent the false messianic kingdom of the Antichrist.

So there you have it: my view of who the Antichrist could be. To find out even more of how I view the nations of the world in Bible Prophecy in relations to the Beasts revealed in the Book of Revelation, I highly recommend that you read another one of my book excerpts that was published on this blog in 2012, and revised in 2013 for inclusion in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy”. Here is the link to it:

Understanding the Two 
Beasts of Revelation 13 and 17

Although many signs point to Prince Charles as being the Antichrist, it could be that his son Prince William will actually fulfill the role as his public representative. As one person I know pointed out: the Antichrist will likely attempt to closely parallel facts concerning Christ’s life. Eerily, Jesus didn't start his ministry until he was 30 years of age, and Prince William was 30 years old in 2012. In my book, I single out this year as the time when the Tribulation plagues will intensify dramatically. As explained in my book, 2012 AD is the Mayan year Baktun 13, which the Mayans saw as the dreaded end of the world, although it is not the end of the physical world, but the beginning of the end of this debased and carnal world system that is currently under the Devil's control. 2012 also coincides with the prophetic Halleluyah Psalm 112, and the prophecies in the Psalms are also discussed in my book.

So, keep in mind that, as you read the news article posted below my closing at the end of the blog post, the Antichrist is being revealed even now. One way he is being revealed is through the great deception recorded in the book: “The DaVinci Code”, which has been used to intensify the secular assault on Messianic and Christian beliefs, along with the false tomb of Christ supposedly found in Israel a few years ago. To counteract these attempts to undermine our faith in Yahshua, please feel free to pass this article along to everyone you know, because the time is short!

NEWS BRIEF: "Winged Prince is 'Savior of the World'
Fox News Life, March 7, 2002.
"LONDON — The Prince of Wales is to be immortalized in bronze as a muscular, winged god dressed in nothing more than a loincloth. He will be the first living member of the Royal Family to have a life-size statue dedicated in his honor. Although the Prince is destined to become Defender of the Faith when he becomes King of England, the inscription on the statue in Brazil will honor him as 'Savior of the World'."

He is shown naked, apart from the loincloth, with giant, angel-like wings protruding from his back. His arms are extended as if offering comfort and security. The statue will dominate the town square, to be named after the Prince, in Palmas, the state capital of Tocantins on the edge of the rainforest. The sculpture, which will invite comparisons with the statue of Christ overlooking Rio de Janeiro from Corcovado, is set on a marble base. At its feet is an untidy mass of human bodies, one drinking from a bottle of wine, which is said to represent the world in a mess which the Prince is busy saving.

Jose Wilson Sequeira Campos, the Governor of Tocantins, in central Brazil, said: 'It is Prince Charles saving the world. We think he is deserving of it.' While the muscular physique of the statue, complete with bulging pectorals, may not immediately shout Prince Charles, the facial features are unmistakable, even if he has a full head of hair and small, pinned back ears."

Commentary and Article: Does "The Great Deception" Start On Monday?

If there was a time to suspect we are on the threshold of the Great Tribulation, the time is now!

The new documentary discussed in the following article is likely going to convince many sleepy or apostate Christians to abandon their faith in Christ as the Son of God! Furthermore, it will lead them to believe the Merovingian heresy popularized in the book and movie called "The DaVinci Code," which calls for a purely human Jesus, who begins a purely human royal blood line that points to the royalty of Europe and England.

I don’t believe any of this for a moment, because the Bible’s Book of Revelation tells us that there will be a great deception and falling away from the faith when the Antichrist is about to be revealed:

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” - 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

and….

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” - 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Don't believe this great deception! As Paul said:

"if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless and you are still in your sins" - 1 Corinthians 15:17.

and...

"if the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die." - 1 Corinthians 15:32

As someone who has met the risen Christ in visions and dreams, and has heard His voice numerous times, I know that the Christ I worship and love is a supernatural being who is alive today, and no longer sports a frail mortal body, but has an imperishable one that resembles the one He had as the preincarnate Son of God. Like Christ, we are to one day be raised up in imperishable bodies as He was:

"Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed -- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ’Death is swallowed up in victory.’" - 1 Corinthians 15:51-54

So, my warning to all Christians and Messianics is to hold on to your faith in the Jesus/Yahshua spoken of in the Gospels that was both God and man, and came to die for our sins so that we might have everlasting life:

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” - John 3:14-18

The Merovingian heresy popularized in “The DaVinci Code” is not true! The last quarter of my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” (www.pillar-of-enoch.com/Language_of_God_in_Prophecy/) deals with this terrible heresy, and soundly debunks it. Therefore, even if the evidence given by this new documentary, and the supposed coffins of Christ, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Yahshua/Jesus that they purportedly found seem real, do not believe it for a moment! It is a lie, and it is a clear sign that we are fast approaching the Rapture and Great Tribulation.

So, if you haven’t already, now is the time to get yourself right with God, and Christ, and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit so that you are guaranteed a place in heaven, and in Christ’s coming earthly kingdom that will replace the evil empire of the Antichrist.

As Yahshua said:

"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." - Matthew 4:17

In Yahshua’s Service,
Helena

Jesus’ burial site found - film claims

New film documents discovery of Jerusalem cave containing ten caskets believed to hold remains of Jesus, Mary, Mary Magdalene and others

***************************************************************
Ariella Ringel-Hoffman

The cave in which Jesus Christ was buried has been found in Jerusalem, claim the makers of a new documentary film.

If it proves true, the discovery, which will be revealed at a press conference in New York Monday, could shake up the Christian world as one of the most significant archeological finds in history.

The coffins which, according to the filmmakers held the remains of Jesus of Nazareth, his mother Mary and Mary Magdalene will be displayed for the first timeon Monday in New York.

Jointly produced by Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici and Oscar winning director James Cameron, the film tells the exciting and tortuous story of the archeological discovery.

The story starts in 1980 in Jerusalem’s Talpiyot neighborhood, with the discovery of a 2,000 year old cave containing ten coffins. Six of the ten coffins were carved with inscriptions reading the names: Jesua son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Matthew, Jofa (Joseph, identified as Jesus’ brother), Judah son of Jesua (Jesus’ son - the filmmakers claim).

Decades of research

The findings in the cave, including the decipherment of the inscriptions, were first revealed about ten years ago by internationally renowned Israeli archeologist Professor Amos Kloner.

Since their discovery, the caskets were kept in the Israeli Antiquities Authority archive in Beit Shemesh, but now two have been sent to New York for their first public exhibition.

Although the cave was discovered nearly 30 years ago and the casket inscriptions decoded ten years ago, the filmmakers are the first to establish that the cave was in fact the burial site of Jesus and his family.

The film, which documents the stages of the discovery, is the result of three years labor and research. It will be broadcast on the international Discovery Channel, Britain's Channel 4, Canada’s Vision and Israel’s Channel 8, which also took part in the film's production.

According to the filmmakers, the film’s claim is based on close work with world-famous scientists, archeologists, statisticians, DNA specialists and antiquities experts.

How God Views Copyrights, Intellectual Property, and Artistic Compensation

Article By Helena Lehman of
The Pillar of Enoch Ministry

http://pillar-of-enoch.com/

Originally Published on February 21st, 2007
Revised and Expanded on February 6th, 2013


Over the past six millennia, our heavenly Father Yahweh, His Preincarnate Son Yahshua, and the Holy Spirit have worked together to choose and call gifted men and women to become artists, musicians, singers, craftsmen, teachers, judges, prophets and prophetesses in order to minister to, and provide for God’s people. Many of these gifted people were wholeheartedly acknowledged and respected during their lifetimes, and were given a responsibility to share their gifts with others, and to teach others how to excel at them also. 

Over the millennia, a few powerful spokesmen and women who were witnesses for the Living God were also eventually recognized for their genuine calling to serve Yahweh, and records were kept of how each of them faithfully carried out their walk with Yahweh. As a result, their names and messages to God’s children were carefully recorded and preserved, and passed down from generation to generation. Today, when we refer to the sacred, inspired texts that they left behind, we refer to book names, chapter numbers, and verse numbers, so that people can look up the pertinent passages on their own.

Most conscientious pastors and Bible scholars would not think of quoting from a passage of the Bible without naming the book it came from. In fact, not only do they quote from these books that are often named after the prophets who wrote them, but they often expound on the virtues, life-experiences, and troubles of the prophets who were inspired to write these texts, as well as the other characters populating the pages of their Holy-Spirit inspired work. Those who love the Bible therefore know the names and characters of many of the prophets and great men and women of God described within it, and they in turn learn much from the trials and tribulations each one of these great people of God suffered, and rose above.

Ever since Christ died on the Cross, and rose from the dead for our sins, many millions more have been filled with the Holy Spirit, and thereby called to write, draw, sing, play music, or dance for God’s Glory. Once the spiritual worth of their contributions have been tried, tested, and proven to be legitimate by the very words of the Bible they work to support, many of these saints have been recognized for their contributions to the Body of Christ, which is the True Church. But very few are appropriately compensated for their time and effort, and very few ever ask for it. Though their willingness to work without recognition is a blessed virtue, they are often horribly taken advantage of because of it. The sad truth is that it often doesn’t pay to be virtuous, even in the Church - where it should be highly valued!

Though no saint is ever to be held in as high esteem as the Word of God, the contributions of our modern day disciples, musicians, artists, prophets, and teachers are rarely given the honor that they deserve. In fact, there is this shameful attitude among many pastors, ministry leaders, intellectuals and scholars that the people who give these contributions to benefit Christ’s Body are not important as individuals, or don’t need to be acknowledged as artists with remuneration of some kind. As a result, many of these saints suffer from intellectual and artistic rape - especially in the case of writers like me. Very often, a believer’s written ideas are used and disseminated within the Church by others without giving them credit. Even worse, the plagiarizer often takes the credit for the insights that should have been attributed to the original author.

How can this attitude be condoned by anyone in the True Church who knows the teachings of the Bible, and the Book of 1 Enoch, which praise the good works, and real faith of the great people of God? The reason is simple. Satan loves hurting people in the Body of Christ, especially those who serve Yahweh with their whole hearts, minds, and spirits. For this reason, the Bible consistently shows that those who served God in the past often had to suffer enormous persecution during their lifetimes. Though usually blessed by God, and compensated for their sufferings, they nevertheless did have to suffer - sometimes to the point of martyrdom.

Now let me place this whole phenomenon in the context of working toward becoming a paid artist, as has been my case for many years. As an Art major in college, and before I knew Yahshua as my Messiah, I suffered at the hands of unscrupulous individuals who literally stole my ideas. Not only did actual drawings get stolen right out of my art portfolios when I was living in dormitories in college, and in the military, but I actually had a design I was working on stolen by a Jewish girl in one of my university design classes! I later ascertained how she did it. After she had deceitfully befriended me, she visited me while I was in my dorm room under the pretense of wanting to discuss our design class. Then, when I left the room to use the dorm bathroom for a few minutes, she stole my design. 

How she did it, I will never really know, though she probably either photographed the technical drawing in my design layout notebook, or took the paper beneath it, folded it, slipped it into her purse, and then rubbed it with pencil to make the lines I had drawn on it show. In either case, she worked hard to build the design I had made quickly, and turned it in to the teacher a couple of days before I had my own version ready to submit. When I turned my design in, and it was nearly identical to the other girl’s - only better made - my supposed “friend” claimed that I had stolen the idea from her! As a result, I received an F on that assignment and a D as a mid-term grade - even though I pleaded with the teacher to rescind that poor grade for weeks. 

Later, as a Christian dance performer who often witnessed to, and ministered to ladies that were in great spiritual need in my dance classes, I was occasionally questioned as to how I could justify charging a fee for teaching women how to dance. They reasoned that, since this art was meant to bless women with health, and was a free gift from God to me, it should be given away without cost. My usual response to these people was this: First of all, I spent a great deal of money and time taking classes from gifted teachers, which gave me the skill I needed to be in a position to teach one day. In addition, I considered it a privilege to give cash in exchange for learning from such gifted people, who certainly did not have to teach me if they chose not to teach!

Likewise, though I considered it a privilege and responsibility to teach others dance skills, it was also a privilege for them to learn dance skills and ethics from such a gifted teacher. They were learning a valuable skill that would serve them well throughout life, if they continued to utilize it for exercise and enjoyment. Furthermore, it was a full time job for me to maintain, and improve my skill as a dancer and teacher. I had to pay experts in dance to keep me informed of the newest dances and trends, and I needed funds to continue pursuing it at a professional level. I therefore had every right to expect financial remuneration. Ethically, I felt that they not only owed me monetary compensation of some kind, but also occasional recognition in social situations where the dance skills I taught them came into play. In other words, we all need to show our morality by honoring our most influential teachers, and showing them the highest respect by not stealing their ideas!

Most students saw the justice of this arrangement, and never questioned my right to be financially compensated, or be given some credit as their teacher. However, the idea of giving anyone compensation for sharing their gift did not always sit well with those students who saw art as a free-for-all. As a result, I later caught a few of my former dance students teaching dance, or performing dances in public using my own choreographies, and without giving me one word of credit as the choreographer. Indeed, they often showed no remorse whatsoever for their sins, and actually had the audacity to appear pleased by my discomfit!

Now, as a professional artist and author of books and articles, I am constantly seeing examples of supposed Christians and Messianics stealing my intellectual property, especially AFTER brushing me off as undeserving of their recognition. This has happened after I shared my work with them in hopes of some recognition and interview publicity on their radio or television shows. But what I received instead from several highly prominent Bible prophecy teachers was the cold shoulder! Later, to my great dismay, I witnessed several of these ministries that I had once supported financially presenting my ideas and theories on their shows for profit without giving me one ounce of credit! Instead, when they even gave credit, these deceitful workers usually named the sources I had named in my books and articles rather than mentioning me, even when using theories that only appeared in my books, and NOT directly in those other sources! 

Unfortunately for the intellectual and artistic rapists or plagiarizers out there that do this sort of thing constantly, this is a form of plagiarism that cannot in any way be seen as godly behavior! In fact, it can and should be viewed as a sin on many levels. First of all, plagiarism violates the Eighth and Ninth Commandments that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai, which are: “you shall not steal” and “you shall not bear false witness”. Secondly, it is a form of covetousness, which is a violation of the Tenth Commandment. Covetous people think that they have a right to take something that their neighbor - or in this case, teacher - has earned and worked hard to attain, without their permission and compensation for it. As such, intellectual rapists are thieves and liars because they take the credit for another person’s brilliance or wisdom without giving them the honor, recognition and possible financial remuneration that should be their due.

Because intellectual rape is often engaged in by decidedly unscrupulous individuals, there are copyright laws that have been put into place to offer some protection to gifted people like me, who have some valuable skills to offer mankind. In my case, it comes in the form of writing poetry, articles and books, and in creating drawings, graphic art, and web pages for God’s Glory. However, these copyright laws are poor protection in today’s world, where too many people want to benefit from other peoples knowledge without paying for it. In my own experience, it seems that this problem is no less widespread in the Church, where countless people share the teachings of others without giving them credit, especially pastors.

There are also problems with how copyrights are applied in the Church at times. One very pertinent example is the Bible. Every Bible in publication today outside of the King James Version is a copyrighted work because it was recently translated, and the scholars and publishers want compensation for their hard work for providing a good Bible translation in modern English. However, the Bible is the Word of God, and He alone is its hidden author and inspiration. God therefore technically owns the copyright on every Bible, regardless of the translator! Since this is the case, the copyright should simply be there so that no other publishing house will start marketing their Bible translation without permission. In this way, the scholars who created that translation of the Bible, and its publishers will receive the revenue and royalties that is their due.

However, when these same publishing houses claim it is unlawful to quote several lines or paragraphs of this pre-purchased Bible in books or essays - even after giving their version of the Bible full credit as the source, they have gone too far, and overextended the purpose of the original copyright. This inappropriate use of copyright can be viewed as true when applied to any book written by a Christian author who feels that God inspires their work, as in my case. Therefore, I have a right to charge people for my ideas when they buy my books, and I also have a right to ask them to give me credit as the source for my original ideas when teaching these concepts to others. I do not however, have a right to tell them how much of my work they can incorporate into their own, as long as I receive an equivalent amount of compensation OR RECOGNITION for it in the form of footnotes and bibliography references in written works, or verbal or written acknowledgements somewhere within video or audio works.

This is where Christ-like love, respect, and kindness need to come into play within the Body of Christ. It’s time for those who benefit from the teachings of spiritually gifted individuals to give their teachers compensation in the form of praise, recognition, and free-will offerings. Remember that, though many past prophets, apostles, and pastors worked for God without receiving a wage, others who loved God, and benefited from their wisdom always provided for them in some valuable way.

Ancient prophets and religious teachers were not always hated, envied, spitefully used, and often forced to live in poverty like so many gifted lovers of Christ are today because they don’t fit into any particular denomination. Many were deeply respected, and well-provided for by the righteous followers of Yahweh in the regions where they resided. The very people that directly benefited from, and appreciated their skills, repaid them for their services as prophets, teachers, artists, judges and arbitrators in disputes. This payment was made through free-will gifts of land and housing, as well as household goods such as food, oil, spices, livestock, precious gemstones and metals, and clothing.  

Today, however, since life is so much more complicated than it was back then, and world societies use money instead of the barter system to carry out transactions, pastors of physical churches and other types of ministries need to solicit financial support to survive. The Pillar of Enoch Ministry is no exception. It’s time for people within the True Church, as members of the Body of Christ, to give much more honor to every person that makes up that Body, especially the teachers, prophets, artists, musicians, dancers, and healers out there who give so much of themselves, but often receive very little in return for it.

This is where true Messianic and Christian love and kindness need to come into play within the Body of Christ. Rather than ask for and expect free handouts, it’s time for those who benefit from the teachings of spiritually gifted individuals, and that have the means, to give their artists and teachers compensation in the form of praise, recognition, and free-will offerings. 

God bless you all, and Maranatha!

Discover the Connection Between the Great Pyramid and Tabernacle!

I've done a detailed study of the religious and prophetic significance of the Great Pyramid in my book "The Language of God in Prophecy." In that book, I've devoted an entire chapter to the clear connection between the Great Pyramid and the Desert Tabernacle. In fact, over 250 pages in that 590 page book are devoted to the Great Pyramid, Sphinx, and Tabernacle, and their connection to one another. This book is available for purchase now on CD in PDF form, and/or as a large, quality paperback from my web site at:

http://pillar-of-enoch.com.

Since we know from the Bible that God gave Moses the plans to build the Tabernacle, it seems highly likely that God gave the plans to build the Great Pyramid to Enoch, who was the greatest prophet of his time. This is an assumption I substantially back in my books, with illustrations to show how the Great Pyramid, Bible, and Tabernacle all tie together as one message in different forms. Even more information about this is now being compiled for inclusion in my book on bible history, "The Language of God in History," which should be in print in May 2007, and I am now accepting pre-orders.

In Yahshua's Service,
Helena

News from Helena Lehman for the Pillar of Enoch Ministry Blog

Greetings, and Welcome to My Blog!

It's been awhile since I let anyone know what's going on with me, and my book and web site ministry in the form of a newsletter. So, here is my first newsletter installment for 2007.

First, let me give all of you a little background into how I came to write my Language of God Book Series. The original two manuscripts that became the Language of God Book Series were written before 1991, and after many attempts to get these two theological works published, I gave up in despair, and stopped attempting to write books for a few years.

In 1993, I first felt inspired to try my hand at writing inspirational historical romances, but found I had a hard time writing dialogue, and developing characters. So, between 1994 and 1999, I went to quite a few writing seminars. In 1996, I went to Louisiana to attend the Romantic Times Conference there, and joined the Purple Prose Society at that time. I also joined the RWA. I learned a good deal at their local meetings and regional conferences. I also tried my hand at historical role-play on line for a few years during this period, and learned a great deal about Ancient Egypt, and writing great dialogue doing so. All this hard work at writing paid off, and eventually gave me a fairly good set of writing and marketing skills.

In 2001, my inclination to want to write a grand book on Christian spirituality returned with a vengeance. Subsequently, I abandoned my desire to write historical romances, and retrieved my very first writing project, which I finished back in 1991. It was a 345-page manuscript called the “Language of God - Yah’s Nature Revealed in His Creation,” and to me, and many others out there seeking spiritual answers, it is not a fiction! :-)

At that time, I was called to re-examine that dusty old manuscript, dust it off, and re-think what I’d written so long ago. This is when my inspiration began to come in huge doses, and this motivated me to spend the last 5 years doing intense research, writing, and drawing. What resulted after examining hundreds of books, and writing thousands of pages is my four-book Language of God non-fiction book series, which I feel is the crowning achievement of my life. Not only are these books self-formatted, and self published, they are also exhaustively indexed, and illustrated by myself alone. I even did the covers they now have, which was no small task, and I believe God had everything to do with my achievement of it. You can take a look at all four book covers, and much more about my books at my Pillar of Enoch website at http://pillar-of-enoch.com.

This four-book series is almost finished now, with 2 books already in print, and two books soon to be in print. The books now in print are “The Language of God in the Universe,” and “The Language of God in Prophecy.” My other two books, “The Language of God in Humanity” and “The Language of God in History” will be in print by March 2007, and May 2007, respectively. Each one of these books has their own home page at my web site, which include large PDF format excerpts from the books, MP3 format interview files for the first two books, and links to on line reviews.

Right now, I am seeking spiritually minded people who are not daunted by scholarly works to do reviews of these books for Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. If any of you think you might be interested, or know someone who would be interested, please contact me privately.

Later this year, after my non-fiction books are finished, I intend to start writing my Pillar of Enoch Trilogy fiction series set in ancient times. These books will have a romantic element in them, as well as be geared to teaching some fundamental spiritual ideas that I believe originated with the righteous descendents of Seth and Enoch before the Great Flood.

If anyone here would like to proof read these books for me as they are finished, please contact me. Though I can’t offer a large payment for your time, I will do my best to pay any interested proofreaders a small stipend, give them an acknowledgement in the book, and present them with a free autographed copy of each book as they are finished.

In the meantime, I hope some of you will check out my web site using the links below, and give me some feedback if you have time. I’d be greatly appreciative.
