Clifton Emahiser – Letter No. 62


THIS IS MY SIXTY-SECOND MONTHLY TEACHING LETTER AND CONTINUES MY SIXTH YEAR OF PUBLICATION. Because there are so many bad teachings circulating around in all areas of Scripture, I find myself on a continuous treadmill in order to combat them. At the present time, I have so many irons in the fire, I don’t know which one to address next. The only advantage I can see coming out of this chaos is the fact that it makes the rest of us study all the more intensely. The problem with this is, they can dream these fantastic screwball ideas faster than I can quell them. Sadly, all this confusion is scattering the sheep rather than gathering them.

After I had all of my Watchman’s Teaching Letters printed up and distributed for March and April, I noticed a mistake on page 1, column 2, paragraph 3 where I mentioned Nebuchadnezzar I, and it should have been Nebuchadnezzar II. You might make a correction on your copy.

We have been doing a walk-through of Daniel’s prophecies, and it has come to my attention again that many of us (in fact, most of us) simply don’t know the history of both houses of Israel up until Daniel’s time. It is impossible, therefore, to make any sense of Daniel without this historical knowledge. Time after time after time, I read in Israel Identity materials that the ten northern tribes went into Assyrian captivity and Judah went into Babylonian captivity. Such a blanket statement is only about 50% correct (in other words, 50% incorrect). Now if one doesn’t want to be among that great majority who are only 50% correct, he will of necessity have to do some “study to show himself approved.”
