And, behold, there was
lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the
midst of the ephah. Zech 5:7 (KJV)
Many People have asked why they cannot find "metallic disk" in this text of scripture. In the King James version, it says, "talent of lead". The NIV which is not a word by word translation but a translation based on idea and concepts, calls this a "cover of lead". In context ,while this object is used as a cover, this form of translation ignores adds intent by context but ignores the full Hebrew word and its literal meaning, which is describing the shape. The talent was a measurement for volume and also a monetary unit, a coin. The Babylonian talent was flat and a dull grey metallic color.
By going back to the literal words and their consistent usage elsewhere in the Bible we find these facts: There are two words used to describe a cover. One describes the shape, one describes the color and combined, they are telling you the overall appearance of something that is used as a cover.
Here are the actual words and their meaning:
in the Hebrew,
is the word Kikkar Strong's number
3603 it means a circle, round and flat i.e. disk the same word is used
for describing a type of coin and bread (eastern bread was round and flat
In the Historical context of this vision and in the prophets own time it is understood to mean the monetary unit and the fact that this system covered and controlled the whole civilized world as an economic advantage which the Babylonians lorded over everyone else it was evil.
In what is called a rule of duplicity, this same vision as a prophecy would have a replay for a future event. There are many examples of this in scripture. Daniel 12:11, The Abomination that makes desolate had a fulfillment in Daniel's time, a future one in 70AD mentioned by Jesus (Mk 13:14) and another yet to come in the future mentioned by Paul in (2Thess2:4).
Ezekiel 28, and Isaiah 14 are addressing rulers in the prophets own time and yet they both trail off in the same breath describing and addressing Satan with past, present and future actions. In Isaiah 7:14 a key word has a dual function between the Septuagint and the Masoretic texts which can reflect this duplicity also. Many words can have dual meanings and in this context, they are like valves that could be translated in either acceptable way within the proper grammar structure of the context. My claim is that only through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit can one know what is applicable as in Matthew's quote of Isaiah 7 as a reference to Jesus and a Virgin birth when historically this text was speaking of Isaiah's wife as a young woman. Both are correct ; virgin or young woman with both definitions for the same word determined by context and the Holy Spirit.
Keeping this rule of duplicity in mind consider the text in Zecheriah 5 with some of the key words. I believe the same mechanics I just mentioned apply here in this text and my claim inspired to me by the Holy Spirit.
The main description means round and flat what we would call a disk and a metallic appearance a coin in Zecheriah's own time and now in ours, a UFO. So there is no scripture twisting going on here. I am not injecting anything into this scripture but rather bringing out what is already there based on the potential meaning of the ancient words.
This object is used as a cover for an evil which is inside the ephah. Ephah (#374) is a Hebrew word for a measurement. It is a standard unit of measurement or an object (in this case a woven basket) which holds that quantity of something. It culturally is the same as our use of the word cup. Something symbolizing evil is inside the measurement. The woman in the measurement is symbolic of the woman who rides the beast of Revelation 19, the whore of Babylon. She is the false religious system who has been the focus of worship in every major empire ( 7 ) that has ever existed and will be the final one of the eighth empire. She is introduced in a measurement, (This ties into my friend Dave Flynn's work on the occult significance of the Roswell crash of 1947 as deciphered measurements and date which were determined by his understanding of the occult. It reveals a plan from Satan to deceive the whole world at a location and time: ie: Roswell 1947 on the 33.3 lattitude.) Daves writing: http://www.goroadachi.com/etemenanki/endgame-2-p1.htm
Notice that the false religion is introduced in a measurement under the cover of a gray metallic disk. The cover here is like a cover story or event, it is only the cover or a surface event to bring on the more important lasting event, a change in beliefs, in this case the Babylonian religion as the woman. In modern times this would be called the New Age and their belief system which is one in the same!
This is the underlying message from the UFO community and the International UFO Museum in Roswell today. They expound and perpetuate this belief system to the entire world because of the popularity of this "crash". This message has a bottom line to it. Who's your Daddy? The UFO community is trying to say that Aliens created us and they are back to save us from ourselves and help us along our evolution into a greater cosmic community of a New Age. My Bible tells me that God created me and that he alone has made all the provisions through Jesus Christ for reconciliation to the Father. He alone is coming back to save mankind from extinction and self rule by reclaiming creation back to himself. This ties right into the scripture that also introduces the Antichrist.
This is exactly what we are faced with today. The message of Antichrist is being proclaimed in many different and various ways today throughout the earth. One such way was from a cover story of a crashed UFO in Roswell. The message is the main lasting event and not the crash itself.
