Ever wonder who the god of fortresses is?
Here is a quote from Isaac Newton; notice he uses Mahuzzim from the original Hebrew, and there is a connection to their disregard for women.
OBSERVATIONS upon the PROPHECIES of DANIEL, and the APOCALYPSE of St. JOHN By Sir ISAAC NEWTON.
CHAP. XIII. “Of the King who did according to his will, and magnified himself above every God, and honoured Mahuzzims, and regarded not the desire of women.”
Contemporary Bibles say “honored the god of fortresses” but Ambrose Phillipps gives a detailed explanation in his book quoted below.
Mahometanism in its Relation to Prophecy by Ambrose Lisle Phillipps (pub. 1855)
PROPHECIES CONCERNING ANTICHRIST. 191 “He shall worship the god Maozim" What is Maozim? St. Jerome informs us that “Maozim," or " Mahuzzim," as Bishop Newton writes it after the Hebrew, signifies strongholds," "forces" Now, the god of Mahomet was emphatically a god of forces, of strongholds, of physical force : his implement, both for extending his spiritual and temporal dominion, was one and the same instrument, the sword. Not the sword of the Spirit, but that sword of which Jesus Christ had declared, “Put up again the sword into its place, for all that take the sword shall perish by the sword. Now, Mahomet's god was the god of the sword, even the god Maozim, or, as the Hebrews read it, the god Mahuzzim.” And who is so blind, as not to see further in this remarkable word, whether the " Maozim "of the Septuagint, or the " Mahuzzim " of the Hebrew, a still more remarkable and wonderful coincidence between it and the name of the False Prophet ? Write it Mahomet, Mohammed, or Muhammed, it cannot fail to remind us of Maozim and Mahuzzim. And if we would pursue such coincidences a little further, we may find an equally striking one between the Maozim and Mahuzzim of the Prophet, and the Muezzim of the Mahometan mosques. The Muezzim amongst the Mahometans are criers, who ascend the minarets of their mosques to call the people to pray to the God of Mahomet. This coincidence had often struck the writer of this treatise, but he was glad to find that it is recognized and enforced by the learned author of a very remarkable French work on Prophecy, " La Fin des Temps" to which the reader has been already referred; in page xiii of his Pre- face it is emphatically alluded to, as also in the body of that learned work. And if the reader will procure that work, he will see how ably the writer treats it.
Obama said he loved the call of the Muezzim coming from the mosques minarets “the most beautiful sound on earth.” Our solders know well that mosques are used as fortresses equipped with guns, ammo, grenade launchers and even dungeons. … YBIC … Oliver
