Curse tablet discovered on Mt. Ebal is a fearful sign

“Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse… thou shalt set the blessing upon Mount Gerizim, and the curse upon Mount Ebal.” (Deut. 11:26, 29)

According to the researchers, the 40 letters inside the tiny folded lead tablet found on Mt. Ebal read:

Cursed, cursed, cursed – cursed by the God YHW.

You will die cursed.

Cursed you will surely die.

Cursed by YHW – cursed, cursed, cursed.

There was a press release about a sealed curse of extraordinary importance on March 24, 2022. It was initially discovered sometime in December of 2019. It dates to around when the original curses were declared on Mt. Ebal in 1406 BC. (“1406 BC” is the date of the conquest of Canaan used by Dr. Scott Stripling, the person who presented the discovery. It is the same date used by most evangelical scholars and myself.)

Those who discovered this tiny lead tablet do not claim it was by Joshua himself. Excavations appear to show two altars on Mt. Ebal. This tiny tablet is from a second altar built around 1200 BC. (For more about these two altars, see the interview with Dr. Scott Stripling: “Has Joshua’s Altar Been Found on Mt. Ebal?“.)

Below is the Youtube video of the press release. I believe that this discovery is a sign intended for the end days, so continue to read this post after you watch the video. Doubtless, what the tablet says and even when made will be debated for a long time. However, the fact that the curses and the blessings are before our eyes at this time is God’s way of drawing our attention to them — no matter the final interpretation outcome.

This article assumes the reading to be correct, at least for now. Most of this article was written back in March 2022. I chose to delay its posting until the final report was made by those who discovered it. But due to the Supreme Court’s decision to end Roe v. Wade I have decided to post it now.

See yesterday’s post: Roe v. Wade overthrown & great signs in the heavens,

A relook at Roe v. Wade provokes the whole world to choose life or death again. It is now shouted from the mountain tops of Mt. Ebal, so to speak, by wicked men in high places who put evil for good. But no matter what they say, it is loud and clear that to choose death is to reject Christians, Christ, and the Bible since it is well known that Christians took the lead in this righteous cause.

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. Deut 30:19

So was there “a witness from the heavens” the day Roe v. Wade was overturned?

Yes indeed, as discussed in yesterday’s post.

An extremely rare parade of planets was seen in the sky the same day the Supreme Court undid the chains of wickedness, with the Sea Monster of the Nile at center.

Moses and the killing of babies

Abortion is like killing babies at the time of Moses’ birth. Then, all of Israel was chained to Pharoh. All male babies were thrown to the Nile to be torn to pieces by monsters of the sea. But God hid Moses for “three months.”

By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. Heb. 11:23

And so, ironically, three months to the day after the Curse-Tablet press conference, Roe v. Wade is overthrown, forcing great and small the world over to choose life or to choose death once again. Their choice justifies the wrath or mercy that follows as we approach the 70th jubilee from Joshua and the Mt. Ebal curses. (1406 BC plus 49 x 70 = 2025 AD).

Woe! Woe! Woe! to the earth!

Actually, there were 12 curses, plus 6 more, as stated in the next chapter (Deut. 27-28). Hence, “Cursed be…” is said 6-6-6 times!

Pictographs of YHW is Jesus crucified

This is by far the oldest reference to the covenantal name of the LORD (YHWH) ever found in Israel. It is so ancient that the letters have not quite changed from pictographs to mere symbols as seen today. (For example, the letter “A” was originally an upside-down ox head with horns!)

Notice that the name of YHW does not include the last letter (YHWH). Anyone who has studied Hebrew knows why. The last letter was silent and likely added later as the language developed.

Half a year ago, God gave a sign using these same three Hebrew letters. They appeared on the temple wall in Jerusalem. I wrote a post about it.

Below is what the Divine Name looks like in the lead tablet discovered on Mount Ebal.

Taken from the Youtube video press conference. It reads from left to right here, although Hebrew only reads from right to left today!

“Cursed is the man who hangs on a tree”

In the above image are the three letters that spell “Yahweh” in the curse tablet. The Hebrew letter “H” of YHW in the above image is a pictogram of a man with hands raised but appears to be stylized to depict someone with their foot planted on the ground.

And it is also of someone being nailed/hung on a tree.

Why do I say this?

It’s because the Hebrew letters for YHW is a pictogram of a hand, a man with hands raised, and a nail (or peg) upon which someone is hung.

“Well, that’s a stretch,” you might say!

But go back and read the story of the curses pronounced upon Mount Ebal. The curses upon Mount Ebal begin with a king hung on a tree and end with five more kings hung on trees, including the “King of Righteousness” of Jerusalem. Moreover, the foot is planted on the neck of the enemy.

Thus the curses are arranged in a chiasm (like the lead tablet). It begins and ends with kings hung on trees (which anticipates the 7th king — the King of kings — Jesus)!

Now read all of Joshua 8:29-10:27.

And when they brought those kings out to Joshua, Joshua summoned all the men of Israel and said to the chiefs of the men of war who had gone with him, “Come near; put your feet on the necks of these kings.”

Then they came near and put their feet on their necks. And Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid or dismayed; be strong and courageous. For thus the LORD will do to all your enemies against whom you fight.” And afterward Joshua struck them and put them to death, and he hanged them on five trees. And they hung on the trees until evening. (Josh 10:24-26)

The words on the curse tablet are written inside and out (Rev. 10). Thus, the name of YHW likely overlaps itself in reverse, like a mirror. This makes sense prophetically because Jesus hung on a tree and became a curse for us. He stretched out on a cross in our place as if overlapping us.

The below image is what happens when the curse is folded back upon itself. Notice that YHW (the Lord) is a pictograph of both the one who pierces a hand and the one whose hand is pierced.

Footnote: This was also true of the Hand Code explained six months ago. Jesus is both the executioner and the one executed -- as says the Mene Tekel Code, which also reads forwards and backward, and was sealed and unsealed, and accompanied by mighty judgments that culminated with the discovery of this tablet in December of 2019.

Moreover, the ancient Samaritans link Mount Ebal to Mount Hermon, and Mt. Hermon is where the Watchers were cursed. The "Watchers" (fallen angels who begot giants) are a major theme in the Mene Tekel Code.
The “y” shape is a pictogram of a hand, and the other letter (the “w” sound) is a peg or nail used to hang something. The man in the middle is the “H”. Because the curse is chiastic, it mirrors itself from the center, and the tablet was sealed tight by overlapping itself; therefore, the curse also overlaps itself. The above is what may be the intended result for the Name of YHW (found twice in the curse). Look close: The hand of Jesus both pierces and is pierced!

Mount Ebal tablet curses. The lower portion shows how it is folded together

“Cursed, cursed, cursed – cursed

by the God YHW.

You will die cursed.

Cursed you will surely die.

Cursed by YHW– cursed, cursed, cursed.”

Below is another way of mirroring the Lord’s name that uses formal pictographs.

In this case, the “Y” shape is the peg or nail that pierces the longer hand (forearm). The shapes are a little different because this reflects a different period in the development of the Hebrew script.
Let’s look at the name “YHW” again. Observe the below image: the foot is planted firmly down. This may simply be the writer’s style as he etches letters on a very tiny piece of lead. But let’s assume it’s intentional. This is the same emphasis found in the Bible from Genesis to the Book of Joshua. ‘Every place that the sole of their foot would go was theirs.’

I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Joshua 1:3

This is why Joshua put his foot upon the neck of their enemies before hanging them on a tree — accursed like the Watchers of old in the days of Mt. Hermon.

The altar where they found the curse tablet forms the image of a pierced foot — a huge foot! This foot shape atop Ebal was intentional, according to many. So it makes sense to have this emphasis engraved in the letters as well

God roars from Zion

The word “cursed” (Hebrew, “arar”), is fascinating. The curse tablet repeats ten times (cf., ten commandments). The word itself sounds like a growling lion, which is likely the origin of this word “arar” and also the word for a lion “ari” itself. Therefore, if spoken aloud this curse sounds like a growling lion about to leap on its enemy.

Cursed (“arar”), cursed, cursed – cursed by the God YHW.

You will die cursed.

Cursed you will surely die.

Cursed by YHW – cursed, cursed, cursed.

Therefore, the above sounds like this:

Arar, Arar, Arar– Arar — El YHW.

Mot Arar.

Arar Mot Mot.

Arar YHW – Arar, Arar, Arar.

Think what this would sound like if roared from Mt. Ebal with its acoustics.

Seven times Balaam attempted to curse Israel, but turned it into a blessing:

The people rise like a lioness;

they rouse themselves like a lion

that does not rest till it devours its prey

and drinks the blood of its victims.”

Then Balak said to Balaam, “Neither curse them at all nor bless them at all!”

(Josh. 23:24-26. Cf., Rev. 11:2.)

490th Shmita (70 jubilees)

The press conference occurred in the middle of the 490th Shmita (seven-year period) from when the curses were pronounced upon Mount Ebal, (70 x 7 x 7, less 3.5). The dividing of seven years expresses the breaking of the covenant and the resulting curse, as per Daniel 9.
