“How different it is with the man who devotes himself to studying the law of the Most High, who investigates all the wisdom of the past, and spends his time studying the prophecies!
“He preserves the sayings of famous men and penetrates the intricacies of parables. He investigates the hidden meaning of proverbs and knows his way among riddles.
“He makes a point of rising early to pray to the Lord, his Maker, and prays aloud to the Most High, asking pardon for his sins. If it is the will of the great Lord, he will be filled with intelligence; then he will pour forth wise sayings of his own and give thanks to the Lord in prayer.
“He will have sound advice and knowledge to offer, and his thoughts will dwell on the mysteries he has studied. He will disclose what he has learned from his own education, and will take pride in the law of the Lord’s covenant.” From Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) NEBA.

My goal is to make this blog a place where you can find solid information about life, the true prophecies, and the future hope of human kind. The posts and pages are intended to be “evergreen.” I may go back to archived posts and edit them to remove any material that may appear dated and to make sure that all material reflects what is most profitable for readers.
In the blog you can find material that cannot be found anywhere else. For example, the posts contain the true understanding of the prophecy of the 1,335 days and the other periods of time found in Daniel and in the Book of Revelation. Although others may write about these subjects, only this blog presents the truth about these with the evidence that backs up this understanding.
This blog is also a “witness.” Here you will find truth that can be found in the Scriptures. The object is to present this material at this time so that the revealed future can be understood now. If you understand what is written you can make changes that will benefit you greatly.
One overall objective is to tell the awesome good news about the next age. Understanding this news does not require that you join any religion, cult, or sect. We are all part of the human race, and this good news affects us all, whether we believe it or not. But the years before the new age and Kingdom comes are filled with sorrow and tribulation.
Therefore, what is written here includes warnings, encouragement and hope.
This is probably the most difficult concept to explain to people who are so steeped in the ways of the world that they cannot understand anything that is outside the world context. But this is not a new thing in the world. It is not something that is a product of 20th or 21st century. The concepts and conflicts underlying the processes of education are thousands of years old — even going back to the time before the great flood.
When I was sixteen I realized that the most important thing for me to do in education was to learn a trade. This in my mind transcended any other education plans that I foresaw in my life. As I considered a trade, I looked to my father who was a machinist and a tool builder. He was one of the best in his field. His reputation was known even in parts of the United States and Europe that he never visited. People came to meet and learn from him. His understanding helped to develop sound techniques for machining the impellers that made jet engines possible. I was impressed by his understanding and wisdom. And strange as it may seem, because of his love for my mother, he would skip the high school machine shop classes by jumping out of the window to go and visit her. I cannot tell of some of the projects that he was asked to work on because of their international implications!
With that background, at age sixteen I asked him if I could get a job as a machinist. It was one of the best decisions of my young life because I did develop a valuable set of skills and continued to grow in the trade to the point where I was an expert in nearly all machines including the super close tolerances of the latest jig-boring machines. I made equipment and tools that were used by the NASA Apollo program and some of the things I built are still on the moon. I used the trade to pay my way through school.
I am firmly convinced that whatever future education plans a person might envision, they should consider a valued and marketable trade, and maybe more than one. The most successful young people often found their success, not from college or university, but in learning skills that they could use for the rest of their life.
But what about higher education. Tragically, more than one half the students who graduate from high school never read another book for the rest of their lives! Obviously, those same students also never continue their education. Those that do go on to college or university find that the decision to pick a major and minor course of study is very frustrating.
After I was half-way through my course of major classes in college, I was called into conference with my chemistry teacher. When I entered his office I noticed that he was examining my IQ and aptitude tests that I took when entering. He shook his head and ask me what was my major. I told him biological science. He asked why I was following that program. The only answer that I had was that I missed that when I was in high school. Duh!
Then he went back to test results, and without looking up, he said, “You should be studying to become physicist.” And he repeated that two times. The tests showed that not only did I have very high writing and language skills, but I also had very high spacial visualization and mathematical skills. I had one of the highest IQs that had ever passed through this school, and I didn’t know it. And they took their time to tell me until I was halfway through my major with straight A grades. Fortunately, understanding kicked in at the beginning of my college years, and in the first two years I completed all the requirements for the liberal arts courses so my transcripts could be accepted anywhere without question. In the remaining years, I was able to pursue my major and minors without needing to take any other courses other than those related to my “chosen” course of study.
But what did I find upon completing that course of study? That I had to rely on my trade to survive because there was no market for those things that I learned!
Following that I attended eight other schools including colleges and universities and law school.
Now here is probably the most important knowledge that I learned as a result of my educational experience. (1) Everything that I learned in all the schools without exception is in the realm called “lower knowledge.” (2) The most valuable information (the knowledge that paid the most) was the trade knowledge and anything related to trade, and marketable skills, including business and contract law, statistics, market research and analysis, and practical (not theoretical) computer science. (3) However, the absolutely most valuable knowledge acquisition did not come from any of the schools and courses of study, and I doubt if such a school even exists in this world.
That is the result of finding the “higher knowledge” that drives and inspires the articles, comments, letters, books, and broadcasts found herein. This comes from revelation, wisdom, understanding, and insight from EL and from Yahua, which most people find hard to understand and believe!
However, the source is open to all, if they choose it above all else.
There is nothing, including those things listed in (2), that I learned in the schools that comes anywhere near the extraordinary value made possible through spiritual sources. From the time I was a little child I was called to this. At age five, I questioned and challenged my Sunday school teachers. When I was working to get my degrees, I had to keep my mouth shut and my head down, otherwise I would have been kicked out and rejected. (This nearly happened!)
School and my many jobs kept me in exile and out of the ministry so wildly accepted by the world. This exile brought me into the realm of “higher knowledge,” which most religions neither understand nor accept as having any validity whatsoever.
Academia is more interested in what schools (including “accredited or unaccredited”) you went to, what professors you studied under, what academic achievements you acquired, what Pulitzer or Nobel Peace prizes you’ve won, what honors you received and from whom and why, how high was your grade point average, what scholarships you were granted, how many letters you have after your name, what kinds and colors of robes you are allowed to wear, and on and on, argumentum ad nauseam.
Here is what the Upanishads of India say about this: (I will edit the names used in this writing slightly to bring them into the context of this work.)
From the infinite EL came forth Yahua,
First among the Sons of EL, from whom sprang the cosmos.
Yahua gave the vision of EL,
The true source of wisdom that life demands.
A great householder named Shunaka once came
To Angiras and reverently asked:
“What is that knowledge which is all knowing?”
He replied: “The illumined sages say
Knowledge is twofold, higher and lower.
The study of the Vedas, linguistics,
Rituals, astronomy, and all the arts
Can be called lower knowledge. The higher
is that which leads to EL-realization.
“The eye cannot see it: mind cannot grasp it.
The deathless EL has neither caste nor race,
Neither eyes nor ears nor hands nor feet.
Sages say this EL is infinite in the great
and in the small, everlasting and changeless,
The Source of Life.
“The deathless EL meditated upon
Himself and projected the universe
as [changing and dynamic] energy.
From this energy developed life, mind,
The elements, and the world of karma,
Which is enchained by cause and effect.
“The deathless EL sees all, knows all. From him
Springs Yahua, who embodies the process
Of [creating energy] into name and form
By which the One appears to be many.”
The rituals and the sacrifices described
In the Vedas deal with lower knowledge.
The sages ignored these rituals
And went in search of higher knowledge.
Such rituals are unsafe rafts for crossing
The sea of samsara (life), of birth and death.
Doomed to shipwreck are those who try to cross
The sea of samsara on these poor rafts.
Ignorant of their ignorance, yet wise
In their own esteem, these deluded men
Proud of their vain learning go round and round
Like the blind led by the blind.
Living in darkness, immature, unaware
Of any higher good or goal, they fall
Again and again into the sea.
But those who are pure in heart, who practice
Meditation and conquer their senses
And passions, shall attain the immortal EL,
Source of all light and source of all life.
Action prompted by pleasure or profit
Cannot help anyone to cross this sea.
Seek a teacher who has realized the EL.
To a student whose heart is full of love,
Who has conquered his senses and passions,
The teacher will reveal the Lord of Love.
By the way, do not feel that you are under any obligation to address me “Doctor” or “Dr.” The title has no bearing on the information you will find in this blog, in my books, etc. It was granted to me by the world and its systems, but the knowledge acquired as a result of that exercise is only tangential to what I have learned from the true Source. Let those words speak for themselves
Why did I use the name “Zahyit?”
Actually, I was looking for a “handle” to use in place of my name. The word Zahyit is a modern Hebrew pronunciation of the word that means “olive tree” from which oil comes. Olive oil is used symbolically in the Scriptures as fuel for lamps and in particular for the Seven lamps on the lampstand that give light in the temple. It was also used in the New Testament parables as a necessary thing for the wise, and something that is lacking in the foolish. The use of this handle I found actually helps me focus on what I must do to be of the greatest help for those who read this blog. If I fail to provide this “spiritual oil” in the posts, then I am remiss and doing you, the readers, a disservice. It is huge responsibility to teach these things, and something that should not be taken lightly or with the wrong motivation and understanding.
