If you study the attack vector, we see a repeat strategy that can be found in historical records, such as the Bible. So, I am very interested in studying the Bible and applying it to our current circumstances. Ignorance is the way to defeat; knowledge and understanding are the way to success. And if Americans understand that everything we have done was founded with the Bible, specifically our Constitution and other Founding documents, then the key to surviving what we are witnessing is clear. If people are not suckered into giving up their moral foundations, foundations that are traditionally positioned by Biblical study, then the modern bad guys will not be successful, and America will survive an attempted coup by globalist forces. This is a topic I’ve always been interested in. I love studying ancient history from all over the world. But now there is a strategy to study. People are lost and looking for answers, as is the goal of every war ever conducted, to pillage and create a menace against the innocent invoking their submission. But in this case, the keys to defeating the enemy are well documented in the Bible. I’ve studied these kinds of things all of my life, starting with Bible school as soon as I had reliable memories at 3 and 4 years old. However, when I was 11 and 12, I started getting the magazine Biblical Archaeology Review, which I continue to this day, and it’s my favorite publication. It’s never a bad day when I get one of those in the mailbox. And the news from May of 2023 was undoubtedly one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of my lifetime, which is significant to our subject here.
One of the ways that evil works in the world is by undermining the belief system of its targets, whether individual or societal. So, knowing that America is a Biblical nation founded on rational Christian concepts and a reverence for the Ten Commandments, which then flow naturally into our Constitution and our Bill of Rights specifically, the way to bring down the nation is to attack its foundations and ridicule them into submission, which is precisely what we see happening. That is the strategy of the globalist insurgents pouring out of the Desecrators of Davos crowd, the (World Economic Forum) types. Being nice Christian people, of course, Americans offered the other cheek, and they slapped that too and kept slapping until we reached the point we’re at now. And one of the great arguments that evil has made in the modern context is to pick apart the Bible as an unreliable document rooted in fiction. And to argue that the God Yahweh isn’t real and that the Bible was written much later than we believe it was, which was the Council of Nicaea under Roman tutelage to unite their fracturing empire in 325 A.D. Yet the text, as proven by the Dead Sea Scrolls, shows that the books of the Bible had been around for many thousands of years. But the problem remained, were these stories actually fiction, like some Star Wars story from a different time? Were any of those characters actually real? And how would we know? There wasn’t much of a way to validate any of it.
Around 2019 at a little alter on top of Mt. Ebal, roughly 40 miles north of Jerusalem, archaeologists were digging at the site when they found a small tablet made of lead about the size of a business card folded over on itself. On the card were written very specific statements that are being called the “Curse of Yahweh” because it invokes the Biblical God as an obvious statement toward someone the writer was very angry at. The actual tablet wasn’t identified until early 2022 because it had to be found among soil dumps that were found through wet sifting, and with the Associates for Biblical Research performing the task. Once the tablet had been found and translated, it went through a peer review process to provide academic scrutiny, and now then, in May of 2023, the results were confirmed. The inscription on the little tablet said, “God yhw curses you, cursed. You will die, cursed—cursed, you will surely die. Cursed you are by yhw—cursed.” Somebody was pretty mad, and they demanded that Yahweh kill the person they were mad at. I would say that’s a pretty typical action that people take, cursing someone they don’t like. But in this case, the dating is remarkable, around 1400 BC to 1200 B.C., which was 300 to 500 years before the building of the first Temple of Solomon. So we have physical evidence of King Solomon’s Temple, but we don’t have a lot of evidence as to whether or not there was a God Yahweh who actually existed, or that people from that time even knew about. The days of the Ark of the Covenant would be set up in a tent, a tabernacle nearby. So, to have Yahweh being used as an all-powerful god in the context of that tablet is quite astonishing. It puts the Biblical timeline more into a historical record as opposed to a work of fiction, which is very significant.
A few other sites have begun to show evidence of the name of Yahweh—one in Egypt, which is consistent with Biblical stories of conquest and chronology. But nothing is as old as this tablet which gives a glimpse into life in that region and the kind of things that the people believed. Which then, of course, would have led to the creation of the Bible that we have today. Someone thought that Yahweh was powerful enough to fulfill a curse on somebody else, and the tablet was clearly asking for such interference toward some remote concept of justice. It’s not like Romans made up Yahweh two thousand years later to satisfy a narrative their empire needed. Instead, we see a glimpse into the past extending beyond the political needs of empires into the heart of human belief. This discovery then validates the roots of the Bible in ways that have been missing in a modern context. Biblical Archaeology doesn’t always look for a narrative’s validation as much as science uncovers the evidence that creates a narrative. And this tablet provides a narrative consistent with the Bible’s events and that Yahweh was a god of significance in a time when history wasn’t so well recorded. But that the Bible is our lost glimpse into that time, and the lessons of then, are the lessons of now. The evil they were fighting then is the evil we are fighting now. And if these discoveries can provide anything worthwhile, it’s that we know how the story ends, and it can provide a rallying cry for our present circumstances. That is, after all, why we should study history, to learn from it. And significant archaeological finds like this one at Mt. Ebal are clear windows into a remote period that validates the remarkable nature of the Holy Bible, in that we have what we do from it about an ancient people, their relationship with God, and the context of other gods entering the picture with evil blowing in their sails, and how society is destroyed under such actions. Here we could see ourselves cursing evil under the name of Yahweh. Only for us, it’s not too late.
