The `beloved` Apostle Johns real name was Luchanyana - `Little Light` in Xhosa, a language which is a remnant and dialect spoken by the ancient Hebrews from the pages the Bible. As taught world history will confirm, there is serious deception going on in the world, where people steal each others cultures and take each others lives for a piece of bread... just like the good book foretold.. perhaps, we`re nearing the end of years of lies and deceit.
Now the city of Jerusalem was supposed to have been a very large agricultural wonder and surrounded by mountains, just read Psalm 125,2... or even the Book of Nehemiah. Please be so kind as to show where the war and torn middle-east the land of Zoroasters, this is suppose to be? What fits the descriptions in the Bible? Where are the Lions the unicorns (Rhinos) and landmarks? IN the course of history every conceivable geographical place mentioned in the Bible changed and have been moved up to (or down to) areas of great importance in the ancient world. This picture of the purported area being Patmos in Greece, its not even a island, its a peninsula..
Compare the two and please take a look at their respective history.
If you disregard historical hearsay, even historians do not have much proofs to bolster their claims, neither archeologically or geographical mapping. Its all very much subjective knowledge, passed down from early mappers. If you disagree on South-Africa being the promised land, consider the area called the `promised land` today and see if there are any such promises. Are there lush areas or a diverse biological wildlife? Great plains filled with animals, great rivers and mountains only God could have created? You won't find any. What you will find though is large patches of barren land and an area mostly covered in desert and people in serious need of discussing/arguing and killing each other..
When it comes to John - Luchanyana (the little light) he was at the Island of Patmos when he received the revelation that was to be written down VERBATUM, and resulted in a now famous and very misunderstood book bearing the same name. Revelations. This Island however, would most likely be the prison island today know as Robben Island, overlooking the Cape in the background (Table of Nations) The very same place Nelson Mandela was confined to for so many years of his life.
If you ask any person interested in the Bible they will with a certain amount of pride tell you the Island is somewhere in Greece, pointing it you on a map to a peninsula - overlooking nothing or having no historical importance. Its the wrong island. Now Robben island could be the real location of his Revelations?
