Belshazzar
The Ram and the He Goat: Part 2

 

          Shalom Aleichem my brothers and sisters.  Once again we are blessed to be in the place where has chosen to place His name.  It is a blessing when we keep the law of the Feast of Passover/Unleavened Bread and all of the feasts that commanded us to keep as written in Deuteronomy 16:16.  We are gathered here for these eight days to feast off of a meal that has prepared for you--His honored guests.

Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil: for is with us; His rod and His staff they comfort us and today, UYUW has prepared a most beautiful table before us in the presence of our enemies to anoint our head with oil--which is wisdom, knowledge, and understanding--until our cups run over.  Anoint by definition means to dedicate to the service of God, UYUW, and dedicate means to offer formally, such as a book on your holy Hebrew name, music, a seminar, or a song to UYUW, or the like, in a testimony of our love, honor and respect for Him. 

Only through study, using the ?divine? Ten Step Study Method of , will we come to understand that it is only the oil of --His wisdom, His knowledge, and His understanding--that one will be capable of being qualified to make a ?proper? formal offering to Him.

Therefore, I would like to testify to you that is the only true and living God, and that He has come in the flesh as the Son, , to deliver us from the mental and spiritual bondage of the wicked rulers of this world.  I would like to give all honor, glory, and praises to , the God of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things--things that we can see and things that we can?t see.  So, let everything that has breath, Praise !

Welcome to today?s seminar entitled, ?Belshazzar:  The Ram and the He Goat,? Part 2.  Before we begin our journey today into the cryptic jungle of Daniel, we shall first do a brief recapitulation of our last seminar, ?Belshazzar:  The Ram and the He Goat,? Part 1, in order to bring us up to speed in our on-going saga of ?Belshazzar.?

In our last seminar, Daniel had a vision, in which revealed to us--through the use of the ?divine? Ten Step Study Method of that this vision was the foretelling of a future event.  This vision took place during the third year of the reign of Belshazzar (Daniel 8:1).  In this vision, Daniel saw himself in a palace--an official residence of a sovereign ruler, at Shushan, which we discovered to be a euphemism for Persia--modern-day Iran.

As Daniel was by the river, ?Ulai,? there stood before the river ?a ram,? which had two horns.  Using various maps, we showed you that the river ?Ulai? is the ancient name for the ?Karun? river--a river that is located after the junction of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers.  We also uncovered the craftiness in the use of the two words ?a? and ?ram,? showing you that ?a ram? is a word play, and that it is actually one word ?Aram? (A-r-a-m), which was used subtly as a substitute for the country Syria.

In the vision, Daniel also saw an arrangement of Syrian military troops positioned in the region of the ?Karun? river to keep watch and to make resistance to any military hostile actions against Iran.  This ?ram? (Syria) had two ?horns?:  research proved the two ?horns? to be the power of the kings of Media and Persia (Daniel 8:20). 

In our seminar, ?Nebuchadnezzar:  Belshazzar And The Handwriting On The Wall,? we discovered through our diligent research that Media is the place where the Medes lived, which, today, is present-day northwest Iran; and Persia is the place where the Persians resided, which, today, is also present day Iran. Both are of the Iranian nationality.

Through our research, we found out that that the people of the Iranian nationality will assist Syria, the ram. In return, Syria, the ram, will also support Iran in the preparation of a device that has the ability to control nuclear reaction in the production of atomic energy. 

We also told you in our last seminar that Daniel also saw in his vision that another animal would arrive on the scene and in today?s seminar, we will identify who this animal symbolizes as well as expose its true character.  Let us read our foundation Scripture for today, Daniel 8:5:

?And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.?

 

As we can see from this Scripture, the animal that shall attack the ?ram,? Syria, is an ?he goat?:  A goat that is referred to as an he goat.  He is an adjective that is describing the goat, which is a noun.  We will now begin to decode our foundation Scripture by defining the first word of the Scripture, and.  On the authority of the Standard College Dictionary, copyright 1963, on page 55, and is a conjunction that is used as ?a connective between words, phrases, clauses, and sentences.? 

The word and in our foundation Scripture is a conjunction used to connect the words, phrases, clauses, and sentences of Verse 5 to Verse 4, meaning that Verses 4 and 5 have a connection, because the ?he goat? in Verse 5 will make a connection with the ?ram? (Syria) in Verse 4.  Let us read Daniel 8:5 in part:

?And as I was considering, . . .?

 

The next word we shall examine in this phrase is considering.  According to the rendering of Webster?s New World Dictionary of the American Language, College Edition, copyright 1968, on page 313, consider, the root word of considering, is rendered as ?taking into account.?

As Daniel was taking into account what he was seeing in his vision, the Scripture tells us that Daniel beheld something. Documented in the Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000, behold, in Daniel 8:5, is defined as to ?observe.?  Therefore, as Daniel was taking into account everything that was taking place, he observed something.  What Daniel observed, according to the Scripture, was ?an he goat.?

In accordance with Webster?s New World Dictionary, Third College Edition, copyright 1994, on page 48, affirms that ?the chief grammatical function of an is to connote a thing not previously recognized, while the connotes a thing previously recognized.? Take note that the ?he? that is in front of the word goat is an adjective, describing the type of goat it is.  In order to identify and describe the character of this ?he goat,? we must decode these two words, so we will start with the word ?he? and then the word ?goat.?

The Random House Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, he (as an adjective) is defined as a ?male (usually used in combination): a he-goat.?  This definition is verifying that the ?goat? in the eighth chapter of Daniel is a male.  Male, in the same reference source is described as ?pertaining to a male person.?  Therefore, the word ?he? denotes a male person not previously recognized.

We shall now examine the word goat, which is a noun.  In accordance with The New Strong?s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, copyright 1990, in the Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary section, on page 86, goat (reference #5795) from reference #5810 is transliterated as ?to be stout.?  The Bartlett?s Roget?s Thesaurus, copyright 1996, on page 482, stout (reference 516) is described as powerful, aggressive, warlike, or well-armed. This ?he goat? is symbolic of a male person; and though he has not been previously recognized, these facts confirm that he is powerful, aggressive, warlike, and well-armed.

Reference #5795 and #5797 (in The New Strong?s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible), have the same application as (#5810) for goat, which means power.  Returning to Bartlett?s Roget?s Thesaurus, power (reference #52.7, page 80) is a person of authority that is equivalent to a commander in chief.  The Webster?s New World Dictionary of the American Language, College Edition, copyright 1968, on page 293 validates that the commander in chief is known ?in the United States as the President.?

With these overwhelming facts, we can now identify clearly the ?he goat? that was not previously recognized.  The ?he goat? is the United States President, George W. Bush--a male person, who is, in fact, powerful, aggressive, warlike, and well-armed.  

Let us continue by reading Daniel 8:5 again in part:

?. . . an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, . . .?

 

The Scripture states that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--came from the west. 

We shall now define the word came and then the word west.  According to the Webster?s New Collegiate Dictionary, copyright 1961, on page 119, came is ?the past tense of come.? On page 164, of the same reference source, come means ?to approach.?

The word came affirms that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--shall approach from the west.  Daniel?s vision placed him in the country of Iran, which means that the ?he goat? shall make his approach from the west of Iran--which is Iraq. 

Let us get a chorographic description of west, in regard to Iran.  On the account of the Webster?s New World Dictionary of the American Language, College Edition, copyright 1968, on page 1660, west is described as ?the Western Hemisphere?; the Western Hemisphere, on the same page, is defined as ?the half of the earth which includes North and South America.?

Given that the ?he goat? comes from North America, the Bartlett?s Roget?s Thesaurus, copyright 1996, on page 518, describes North America (reference #564.7) as regions of the United States.  Therefore, the ?he goat? in Daniel 8:5 is well-armed with powerful forces from different regions of the United States.

To get a visual of this geographical area, let us look at map appendix #1, on the Universal Map of The World, by Book Enterprises Inc., N.Y.C., 1961 Edition. You can see that directly across from the west of Iran is a straight line to the United States of America.  Daniel 8:5 further reads that the ?he goat? came from the west:

?. . . on the face of the whole earth, . . .?

 

The Scripture (Daniel 8:5) tells us that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--made his approach from the United States on the face of the whole earth.

Based on the documentation of the Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000, on is a preposition that is ?used as a function word to indicate the object of hostile action.?  In Webster?s New World Dictionary, Third College Edition, copyright 1994, on page 946, on also means ?so as to be supported by.?  Object (on page 934), is defined as ?person to whom action is directed.?  The word on denotes that the ?he goat? shall seek to be supported by face of the whole earth in his aggressive, hostile actions directed against the ram, Syria.  

Face, in Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000, is expressed as ?surface,? and surface connotes ?an external part.?  While external, in the same reference source, is ?relating to dealings or relationships with foreign countries,? part (in Random House College Dictionary, Revised Edition, copyright 1988, on page 969 is described as ?a region.? 

We can conclude that the phrase ?on the face? validates that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, through his crafty dealings and international relationships with foreign countries in different regions of the whole earth--shall seek support in the hostile actions he shall direct toward the ram, Syria. 

The next phrase in Daniel 8:5 tells us the magnitude of the support the ?he goat? shall seek, and it reads in part:

?. . . of the whole earth, . . .?

 

The word of in the Scripture is a preposition.  In conformity with the Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, of is depicted as being ?used to indicate distance.?  The same reference source expresses the word whole as ?entire.?  The ?he goat,? President George W. Bush, shall seek this support throughout the distance of the entire earth.  The manner in which President George W. Bush--euphemistically called the ?he goat? to seek the support of the entire earth today is to appeal to the United Nations.

Continuing in Daniel 8:5, it tells the manner in which he will do this, and it reads:

?. . . and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.?

 

The ?he goat? shall seek this support throughout the distance of the entire earth, and shall touch not the ground. 

Still using the same reference source, touch, the base of the word touched, is described as ?to bring (something) into contact with (something else).?  While ground is classified as ?a tract of land appropriated to a special use,? appropriated, in the same reference source, means to ?legislate for some specific purpose or use? and the word Legislate is certified as to ?enact laws.?  Referenced in Webster?s New World Dictionary, Third College Edition, copyright 1994, on page 68, appropriate means ?to take for one?s exclusive use; to take improperly, as without permission.?

This tells us that when the ?he goat? takes his hostile actions against the ram, Syria, he will not come in contact with the tract of land that he had taken improperly without permission and for his exclusive use.  To do so, he shall enact specific laws to protect this tract of land for a particular purpose or use.   

In continuing our research, let us read the next part of Daniel 8:5 in part:

?. . . and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.?

 

The ?he goat,? President George W. Bush, had a notable horn between his eyes.  To determine what this phrase means, we shall examine the words notable, horn, between, and eyes by consulting with some of the most respected literary authorities.  We will start first by defining the word notable

The Webster?s Third New International Dictionary, Volume H-R, copyright 1986, on page 1543, notable is translated as ?a prominent figure.?  On the account of the Bartlett?s Roget?s Thesaurus, copyright 1996, on page 702, prominent (reference #799.11) is an adjective, and it describes a high ranking, commanding figure.  On the basis of Webster?s New Collegiate Dictionary, copyright 1960, on page 309, figure is ?a person representative of another.?  Documented in the Bartlett?s Roget?s Thesaurus, copyright 1996, representative (reference #52.4), on page 80 is a noun that is equivalent to military rank.

On the basis of this information, the phrase notable horn? in Daniel 8:5 is describing a high-ranking, commanding person with military rank.  The Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, defines military as ?pertaining to the armed forces.?

On the basis of this information, we can deduce that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--shall have a plan to utilize his high-ranking commanding officer, the horn--his representative in the armed forces--who is located between his eyes.

Since the word notable is describing the word horn in Daniel 8:5, then let us now examine the word hornOn the authority of The New Strong?s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, copyright 1990, in the Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary section, on page 105, horn (reference #7161) represents ?power.?  Also, the Webster?s Third New International Dictionary, Volume H-R, copyright 1986, on page 1778 validates power as ?ability to wage war.?

Therefore, this information is disclosing that the ?notable horn? is a high-ranking commanding officer in the armed forces of the ?he goat,? who has the ability to wage war against the ram, Syria.  These armed forces are located between his (the he goat) eyes.

Now let us decode the last phrase in Daniel 8:5, which is:

?. . . between his eyes.? 

 

We shall now examine the word between. According to Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, between is defined as ?in the space separating (two points, etc.); linking; connecting.?  On the authority of the Webster?s New World Dictionary of the American Language, College Edition, copyright 1968, on page 142, between also means intermediate, which on page 763, is described as ?in the middle.? 

Based on these facts, we know that ?he goat? already has his appointed high ranking commanding officer over the armed forces located in a place of which the position alone is considered in the middle.  The middle separates two points, but at the same time, it is also linked and connected to his eyes.   

Now let us move to the last phrase in coming from Daniel 8:5, which is ?his eyes. ? The same reference source describes eye (on page 518), the singular of eyes, as being ?the center of a target.?  Target, on page 1491, is defined as ?a site that is the object of a military attack?; and site, on page 1364, is described as ?a piece of land considered from the standpoint of its use for some specified purpose.?

Therefore, the phrase ?between his eyes? means that the ?he goat? has already positioned his high-ranking, commanding officer in charge of the armed forces in Iraq--the middle of two points, Syria and Iran.  This middle region, Iraq is linked and connected to these two points--Syria and Iran.  

Let us now take a look at where this middle piece of land is located.  Again, looking at the same Universal Map of The World map, appendix #2, we can see that Iraq is the piece of land that is in ?the middle? of the targets of the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush.  Based on this world map, you can see that Iraq is positioned directly between Syria and Iran.  And the ?he goat? has taken this middle region improperly and without permission for his exclusive use and for the specific purpose of launching a military attack against Syria and Iran. 

Let us now continue our research by investigating Daniel 8:6, which reads:

?And he [the he goat] came to the ram [Syria] that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.?

 

The knowledge that this Scripture is imparting to us is that ?he? in this Scripture is the ?he goat,? who came to the ram that had two horns, which Daniel had seen standing before the river. We will now define the word came from another perspective. In consulting with the Roget?s Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases, copyright 1937, on page 96, come (reference #286), the present tense of the word came, is a verb, and is equivalent to approach, pursue, near.

In Daniel?s vision, the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, shall approach and pursue the ?ram?--Syria.  The Random House Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, expresses approach as ?to make a proposal.?  Pursue, in the same reference source, is classified as ?to follow in order to overtake.?  Proposal is defined as ?the act of suggesting something for acceptance, adoption.?

The word came tells us that this ?he goat? will make a suggestion that something be accepted or adopted in order to overtake Syria, the ram.  Let us not forget that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--is modern-day Belshazzar, son of modern-day Nebuchadnezzar, former President George Herbert Walker Bush.  And all of the revelations that UYUW is revealing to us is what shall befall him and his kingdom, modern-day Babylon--America.

In continuing our research, let us read Daniel 8:6:

?And he came to the ram [Syria] that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.?

 

The ?he? in this Scripture is the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, and the ?ram? is Syria.  Now Daniel 8:20 will verify who the two horns are.  Let us read please:

?The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.?

 

According to this Scripture, the two horns are the two kings of Media and Persia, (the chief rulers of the Iranian people), who shall assist and support the ?ram?--Syria.  Remember, in our seminar, ?Nebuchadnezzar:  Belshazzar And The Handwriting On The Wall, Part 2,? we told you that Media and Persia are places where the Medians and Persians reside, and both today are called Iranians. 

Let us continue with the next part of Daniel 8:6 which reads in part:

?. . . which I had seen standing before the river, . . .?

In Part 1, we explained the meaning of standing in Daniel 8:3, and we told you that it means that Daniel saw in his vision an arrangement of military troops placed before the Karun River that were placed there to keep watch and to make resistance to any military hostile action against Iran.

Let us read the remainder of Daniel 8:6:

?. . .  and ran unto him in the fury of his power.?

Considering this information, we see that the ?he goat?--a euphemism for President Bush, ran into him--the ram, Syria, in the fury of his power.  To discover what this means, we shall define the words ran, unto, and then fury and power. The Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, defines ran as the ?past tense of run? and run is defined as ?to move with haste.? Unto, in the Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000 is classified as ?to.?  To in the same reference source is ?used as a function word to indicate an action.?   

          Therefore the phrase ran unto proves that the ?he goat? shall move with haste to take action against the ram, Syria, in the fury of his powerWe shall now examine the words fury and power. The Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, describes fury as ?unrestrained or violent anger; rage.?  In the same source, unrestrained is ?uncontrollable.? Of is ?used to indicate reason.? 

Therefore, the ?he goat,? by reason of his power, has an uncontrollable proliferation of violent anger against the ram that shall cause him to go into a fit of rage against the ram, Syria.  Now let us look at the power that the ?he goat? has. Continuing in the same source, power is characterized as a ?delegated authority; authority granted to a person or persons in a particular capacity: the powers of the president; a nation having international authority or influence; a military force.? 

And force, in accordance with the Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000, is ?a body (as of troops or ships) assigned to a military purpose.? Therefore, because of his uncontrollable proliferation of violent anger against Syria, the ram, the ?he goat? will go into a fit of rage, and will exercise his power as President as well as his international authority and influence, and he will delegate his high-ranking commanding officer in the armed forces to launch a body of troops and ships assigned to a military purpose against the ram, Syria.

Let us now move to the next verse, Daniel 8:7, and read please:

?And I saw him [the ?he goat?] come close unto the ram [Syria], and he[the ?he goat] was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.?

 

We will now investigate the words close and unto to discover how the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--modern-day Belshazzar, got close to the ?ram?--Syria.  On the account of the Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, certifies close as an adverb that means ?close by.?  In the same reference source, close by is rendered as ?nearby; neighboring.?

The ?he goat?--George W. Bush, modern-day Belshazzar, shall get near by the ?ram,? Syria, from a neighboring country--Iraq.  The next word we shall define is unto.  According to the Webster?s New World Dictionary of the American Language, College Edition, copyright 1968, on page 1598, unto is a preposition and is defined as ?until.?  Until, on the same page, is defined as ?a time specified.?  So at a time specified, the ?he goat? will get near the ?ram,? Syria, from a neighboring country--Iraq:  the country which he took improperly and without permission for his exclusive use and purpose.

In that until is a preposition, Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000, classifies a preposition as ?a function word that expresses a predication.? The word predication (in the same source) is a noun that is ?an act of proclaiming.? The ?he goat?-- George W. Bush--modern-day Belshazzar, shall make a proclamation against the ?ram--Syria.? 

Proclaim, a derivative of proclamation, in the Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, is ?to declare a territory to be subject to particular legal restrictions.?  Restrict, the root word of restriction, is characterized as ?to keep within limits, as of space.?  Based on these documented facts, the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, will declare the territory of Syria to be subject to a particular legal restriction to keep Syria within a limited space. 

So, summarily, close unto the ram, Syria, means that at a specified time, the ?he goat? will come near from a neighboring country, Iraq, to declare legally a region in Syria to be kept within certain limits.  

Let us read the next phrase in read Daniel 8:6, in part:

?. . . and he [the he goat] moved with choler against him [Syria], . . . . ?

 

In order to understand this portion of the Scripture, we shall explore the words moved, choler, and against.  Referenced in the Merriam Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000 moved is depicted as to ?take action.?  Choler in the same reference source is defined as ?anger.? Against means ?in hostility to.? Thus, moved with cholor against him is reaffirming that ?the he goat? will angrily take hostile action against Syria.

 Let us now read the next phrase in Daniel 8:7, and it reads:

?. . . and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: . . .?

 

The Scripture tells us that the ?he goat? smote the ram and brake his two horns.  To discover how the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, modern-day Belshazzar--shall smite the ram, Syria, let us closely examine the word smote.

In The New Strong?s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, copyright 1990, in the Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary section, on page 78, smote is transliterated as ?to strike (severely).?  On the account of the Webster?s New World Dictionary of the American Language, College Edition, copyright 1968, on page 1444, strike is described as ?to attack.?  Thus, the ?he goat? shall severely attack the ram, Syria, and brake his two horns, the kings of Media and Persia (the chief rulers of the Iranian people).

To discover what brake means, we shall consult the books of understanding--the dictionaries.  The Webster?s New Collegiate Dictionary, copyright 1961, on page 102 defines brake as ?a variation of break.?  Break on page 103, is classified as ?to destroy, impair, disable; to sever the continuity of; to put an end to.?  According to the Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, destroy is characterized as ?to defeat completely.?  Also, in the Bartlett?s Roget?s Thesaurus, copyright 1996, break (reference #523.12) on page 488 is synonymous to bomb; blow to bits. 

In Daniel?s vision the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--modern-day Belshazzar, shall completely defeat the two horns--the kings of Media and Persia (the chief rulers of the Iranians people) by destroying, impairing, disabling, and severing the continuity of something to put an end to it by bombing and blowing it to bits.  What is this something?

To answer this question, we will have to reflect upon some of what we discussed in the seminar, titled, ?Belshazzar:  The Ram And The He Goat,? Part 1: we discovered in Daniel 8:2 that the name of the river that Daniel was by in his vision was the Ulai, which is the  Karun River, which empties into the 120 miles long Shatt al Arab channel in Southeast Iraq, which flows into the Persian Gulf, which is after the junction of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

In looking at map appendix #3, according to the Encyclopaedia of the Orient, on the Internet, htt://lexicorient.com/e.o/euphrats.htm, the Shatt al Arab channel is close to the border of Iraq.  We can conclude that in a short time, the ?he goat,? President George W. Bush--modern-day Belshazzar, who already have troops and ships positioned in Iraq, will block the entrance of the port of the Karun River from Iraq.  The Karun River is used for the arrival and departure of ships, to load and unload cargo and supplies in the town of Khorramshahr in Iran.  The ?he goat? will block the entrance of this port by bombing and blowing it to bits in order to destroy, impair, disable, and sever the continuity of port operations, which will stop the continual transporting of materials to build a device that could control nuclear reaction in the production of atomic energy.  And in doing this, the ?he goat? will defeat the ram, Syria, and the Daniel 8:7 reads: 

?. . . and there was no power in the ram to stand before him [the he goat], . . .?

 

In accordance with Merriam-Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000, power implies ?possession of ability to wield force.? Wield in Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, is ?to use (a weapon, instrument, etc.) effectively.? 

          As a result of the he goat impairing the continuity of port operations and stopping the continual transporting of materials, to build a device that could control nuclear reaction in the production of atomic energy, the ram will not possess the ability to use any weapons effectively; therefore, he will not be able to stand before the he goat, and the ?he goat,? President George W. Bush, will cast him down to the ground, which is the next part of Daniel 8:7 to be decoded, which reads:

?. . . but he  [the ?he goat?] cast him [the ?ram--Syria?] down to the ground.? 

 

Let us define the word cast to see what it is that the ?he goat? will do to the ?ram--Syria.?  Based on the renderings from the Roget?s Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases, copyright 1937, on page 96, cast is rendered as being equivalent to project; put to flight.  The Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999, characterizes the word project as ?to propose or plan.?

Daniel?s vision verifies that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, modern-day Belshazzar--will soon propose or plan a way to put the ram, Syria, to flight, so that there would be none that can deliver the ram out of his hand, which means out of his ?control,? (according to Merriam-Webster?s Collegiate Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 2000). 

Now let us move on to Daniel 8:8, and let us read please:

?Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.?

 

The Scripture states that the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush, modern-day Belshazzar--shall wax very great.  To wax very great means that he shall increase and profit (which is validated in the Roget?s Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases, copyright 1937, on page 14).  

After the ?he goat? has effectively executed his proposal and successfully accomplished his plan to put the Syrians to flight, he will then enlarge his territorial range and profit from the use of their land.

For some insight on how the ?he goat? will profit from the use of Syria?s land, let us closely investigate some of the resources of Syria that the ?he goat? is in pursuit of. 

Based on documentations from The World Factbook, copyright 2003, Internet, http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/sy.html one of Syria?s main natural resources is petroleum, which is oil according to Random House Webster?s Unabridged Dictionary, Computer Software, copyright 1999.   When the ?he goat? puts the ?ram,? Syria to flight, he will then enlarge his territorial range, and profit from the use of the oil of Syria?s land for his own personal gain.  This is how the ?he goat? will wax very great.

In summary, on account of all the facts gathered from the interpretation of today?s seminar, we have gained knowledge of some of the forthcoming events of the modern-day Belshazzar.  We learned that the words ?he goat? is a euphemism for modern-day Belshazzar--President George W. Bush, who shall come from the west--the western part of the world--North America with the strength of a high-ranking commanding officer of his military that is already positioned in Iraq, between his two targets, Syria and Iran. 

As a result of the power, authority, and international influence of the ?he goat,? he has already taken Iraq improperly and without permission for his exclusive use and for the specific purpose of launching a military attack against Syria, which he will soon make a proposal to foreign nations and the U.N. to accept this plan, though he doesn?t need their permission or their approval, as we can see from the way he acquired Iraq.

The ?he goat? is planning to attack the ram, Syria, so severely that it will shut down the operations of the port of the Karun River, a port used for the arrival and departure of ships to load and unload cargo and supplies, which will, at the same time, ultimately defeat the chief rulers of the Iranian people (Media and Persia), by putting them to flight, leaving Syria with no assistance.  Accomplishing this task, the ?he goat?--modern-day Belshazzar--President George W. Bush will then enlarge his territorial range, and subsequently profit from both the oil resources in Iraq and Syria?s oil.  This would surely cause the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush--modern-day Belshazzar to wax great.  Let us read Daniel 8:8:

?Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.? 

 

Join us in our next seminar to see what happens when the ?he goat?--modern-day Belshazzar--President George W. Bush shall wax very great and become strong and brake the great horn.  We shall also discover what four notable ones shall come up toward the four winds of heaven for the great horn.  You don?t want to miss the continuing saga, as we shall continue to reveal events that shall take place during the reign of the modern-day Belshazzar--the ?he goat?--President George W. Bush.
