The Battle of Jericho and The Book of Revelation by Rav Sha’ul

This website serves to expose Paul Sides as a false teacher.

On 08/24/16 Paul Sides posted this a link to one of his studies on Facebook.

To save space, I’m going to address the major points about what Paul Sides teaches about the fulfillment of Revelation.

You can read the whole article here:

Rav Sha’ul’s article is in black, my comments are in red.

I want to explore the Battle of Jericho and detail what YHVH gave as a prophetic portrait of the same event, on a much greater scale, upon the second coming of the Messiah.  All the stories and feasts and holy days in the Old Testament were given as physical metaphors or “rehearsals” to teach us of greater Spiritual Truths and events surrounding the second coming.  In this article I am going to cover all the major events surrounding the return of the Messiah in Revelation.  I will demonstrate that each event is covered in detail on a smaller scale in the Battle of Jericho.

The Two Witnesses – (Revelation 11 and Joshua 2:1)

In Revelation 11, two witnesses are sent to Earth to prophecy 1,260 days prior to the second coming and battle to reclaim The Promised Land for Remnant Israel.  In the book of Joshua (Joshua 2:1) two “spies” which are nothing more than witnesses are send into to the land of Canaan and specifically to the Kingdom of Jericho to survey and report.

He didn’t really say who he thinks that the Two Witnesses are, but it doesn’t matter because his explanation is wrong.   the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, the Scriptures and the Church of Messiah, have already testified during the 1,260 reign of the antichrist Popes of Rome, from 538-1798 A.D.  The Popes banned and burned the Scriptures, and they persecuted the saints, killing over 50 million.   Read Revelation 11 – Two Witnesses

The 7 Seals (Revelation 8)

We see in the Battle of Jericho that the army was to walk “around” the walls of Jericho 7 times before the “last set of 7 Priests were to blow their trumpets/shofars”.  Why?  What could be the reasoning behind this action of walking AROUND the walls?  This action would seem to be a “metaphor” for the 7 Seals which were “around” the scroll.  The sequence of events are identical to the events in Revelation, following the completion of the 7th Seal, 7 shofars are given to 7 Angels to sound.  Following half an hour of silence, the Angels sound the 7 Shofar blasts just like in the Battle of Jericho when after walking around the city in complete silence 7 times the 7 priests blow their shofars:

This explanation is wrong because the seal judgments have already been poured out on the pagan Roman Empire, causing its decline from civil wars, famine and severe pestilence, causing many Romans to die.

Messiah did this to exact vengeance, as Satan had used the Roman Empire to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints, whose blood was crying out for vengeance.  These are the saints who were symbolically given white robes to wear. Read Revelation 6 – 7 Seals Overview

The 7th Trumpet/shofar blast (Revelation 11

Now the next sequence of events in the Battle Jericho (after walking around the city 7 times like the opening of the 7 seals around the scroll) was the sounding of the 7th trumpet/shofar blast, a long distinguished blast.  This too is the next sequence of events in Revelation and we read about it in Revelation 11.  Please note, the Book of Revelation is not sequential, it is a dream or a vision and jumps around.  Many of the events in Revelation occur concurrently or one triggers another etc. and the book jumps around in time from chapter to chapter.

This explanation is wrong because the trumpet judgments have already been carried out, as army after army were sent to attack the vast Roman Empire, leading to the fall of the Roman Empire when the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 A.D.  Read Revelation 8 – 4th Trumpet

Revelation gives a chronological explanation of what would happen to Messiah’s church as they battled the Satan-empower Roman beast.  But it is a war manual, so the whole message is hidden in four basic layers which when overlapped, give the explanation. Read Revelation Is A Layered War Manual

Revelation 11

13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed.

The Great Earthquake

Now we do see that it was an earthquake that caused the city to fall in Revelation 11:13.

An earthquake in prophecy symbolizes great political upheaval. Examples.

In this case it is pointing to the Roman Catholic Church losing power due to the Protestant Reformation, when England removed themselves from the authority of the Popes.  England made up about 1/10th of their power.

So after the Last Trumpet followed by a loud SHOUT, the dead rise first then the living “go up” with them and the Army of YHVH is assembled with Yahusha the Warrior/King commanding.  We see in Revelation the martyrs are given white robes and so too are the risen dead and assumed living all of whom make up the Army of YHVH who returns with Yahusha to wage war on Earth:

Revelation 6:11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed.

This is wrong because it is referring to the saints who were killed by the Roman Empire, whose blood cried out for vengeance, which Messiah honored through the seal and trumpet judgments, causing the decline and fall of the Roman Empire

These are the 5th seal martyrs who endured 10 especially hard years of persecution (the 10 days of tribulation for the Smyrna Church era) by Emperor Diocletian, who sought to wipe out the Early Church.  Read Revelation 6 – 5th Seal Martyrs


YHVH has given us (Remnant Israel) “the Kingdoms of Earth” to occupy, purge, rebuild, and govern.  Just like YHVH gave the Kingdom of Jericho and the Promised Land to the Israelites of old.  Those who destroy the Earth will be judged and destroyed.  Today as we witness the Global Elite make their move to control this planet, we see them destroying the Earth.  They are poisoning our atmosphere with chemicals, poisoning our water supplies, playing with our weather, and they are playing with the genetics to attempt to achieve eternal life (trans-humanism).  In the end, they will neither govern this Earth nor will they achieve Eternal Life.  We have been called and set apart to stand against this evil and in the end fight for this planet.  The planet has been given to us by YHVH but WE have to take it by force at the appointed time led by Yahusha our King.

The Global Elite?  That’s pretty generic.  Revelation 13 describes the end times earth beast which rules the world, the Jesuits of Rome, who control the world via their three city-state corporations.

Their city-state corporation of Vatican City controls the world’s political and religious leaders.

Their city-state corporation of The City of London (which is separate country from London, England) controls the world’s financial and trade organizations.

Their city-state corporation of the District of Columbia (which is not part of the United States) controls the world’s intelligence agencies and military powers.

Paul Sides says that they will not govern the Earth, but the 7th bowl of Revelation declares that the Jesuits of Rome will form their One World Government to rule the world; as the Great City of Rome will rule the world.

They will have the Pope issue a command for people to either join with them, to be able to be a part of their one-world financial system.  Those who revere (mark on forehead) and obey (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist Pope will have the mark of the beast on them symbolically.  Those who refuse will not be able to buy or sell in the one-world financial system.

The great earthquake represents the great political upheaval as all the countries and great cities will be subservient to the New World Order. 

The great city being split into three parts represents the three city-state corporations that the Jesuits will use to control the world. Read Revelation 16 – 7th Bowl Judgment

This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study series proves that most everything Paul Sides, aka Rav Sha’ul, teaches about Revelation prophecy fulfillment is wrong.  And that it serves to deflect blame away from the Jesuits of Rome.
