THE PROPHESY OF DANIEL according to Paracelsus – Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombast of Hohenheim
The Prophesies of
the Prophet Daniel
An explanation, regarding the Book of Prophesy of the Prophet DANIEL, brought out of the Darkness into the Light.
Many books have been written and there are many incidents in history of falsehood and deceit, that also includes false Christians and false Prophets. They also use the Name of Jesus Christ and even go to the extent of proclaiming that they are called upon by Jesus Christ to do what ever they do. But, “Do not be surprised, that those who proclaim that they are Christian, are against Christianity.” It is not possible to point out every detail of their behaviour.
Jeremiah, Chapter 14, verse 14 states:
“Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of naught, and the deceit of their heart. “
In the old Testament, through dreams, many things were seen, but these dreams require prophesy. Since dreams appear when you are asleep, and nobody really understands their meaning, we know when such dreams originate from God that they are symbols, and they were symbols to Daniel. They are not fables or empty words, but they are of great significance. All of us have dreams, but we do not know their meaning and we do not know why we dream.
John, the Apostle and Evangelist wrote the Book APOCALYPSE = REVELATION .He wrote it, and it has the appearance of a story, which he, John the Apostle, did not understand himself. He was, however, a disciple of Jesus Christ, one who was next to the Bread. This fact gives us to understand, that the Book is so holy, that we should not attempt to interpret it.
The meaning of this book was kept hidden to John himself, the very person through which it came into being. It was within him, much more than in anyone else, however, it is much less so with those, who do not have their Love with Christ, such as the false Christians and the false prophets, who soil, besmirch and interpret all things. Their interpretations are idle babble. What they tell others to do, they do not do themselves. They do not look at themselves in the mirror.
Even though the dreams which are written in the Book of Daniel and in John seem erroneous and incomprehensible to Human Beings, when you understand the reason, then it is not very hard to understand the meaning. These dreams, originated from highest of all Prophets, he who knows all things. That we read and contemplate about these things, is just, equitable and Christian. These dreams are only meant for those who believe in Christ and they point out the undertakings of the antichrist, the false Christians, the false Prophets and the seducers of the Nations. They dream from Beginning to the End and of other Prophets. Since their beginning follows a particular pattern, they will rule or reign in accordance with this habit and this determines their end.”
“Christ only had one traitor among his twelve disciples. Now there are hundreds of thousands, instead of having one out of twelve you now have eleven out of twelve. But evil has a short lifespan, therefore it is absolutely necessary for this to happen because it shortens the days of the righteous, otherwise the righteous could not reach the blissful state, if their days would be prolonged. Through many evil people, they reach their goal sooner.”
“The false Prophets, are those who think that they have the knowledge, that they can interpret the Prophets and think that they know even more than the Psalmist himself. However, when you look very closely, when all the nonsense has been removed, you will find, that what is left is even more than nonsense. Only if the Holy Ghost deals with the prophesies through a Human Being are we dealing with the Truth, otherwise we are dealing with falsehood.”
“Let us continue this example: there are two robbers and one becomes a merchant. The merchant then feels himself to be in a more honorable position than the robber, even though the merchant lies more and makes a higher profit on his merchandise than the robber. However, according to general opinion, a successful merchant is a skillful, knowledgeable man and is praised by others. The same relationship exists between the false Prophets and the false Christians. Therefore, do not believe those stories, which they tell you. What they accuse others of, they do themselves, because all have become merchants, selling their goods, even God’s words, for such a high price to the point of usury. They are merchandisers, worldly merchandisers, not Christians.”
“All of You, who believe in Christ, should remember the Proverb: The full Soul loathed a honeycomb, but to the hungry soul, every bitter thing is sweet. In other words, do not believe every spirit. Many times an evil spirit is interpreted by false prophets as the Holy Spirit or by the more blasphemous, the proud, as even the Voice of God. Do not believe such interpreters, even though they seem intelligent and genuine with their word. They are nothing else but glossaries. They seem to be totally against the devil on one side, but on the other side they could not be more united with him, more than anyone else on planet Earth. King Lucifer knew the will of God, in spite of this he acted in opposition to it, and he therefore became, not only an idiot, but also the devil.”

It should be noted that in his writings one must get acquainted with the thought process and terminologies of the time. Paracelsus also coined some of his own terminology at times to better describe his concepts.
