Xhosa Words 3.0

The writing on the WALL spoken of in Daniel and the holy tongue of the Bible, the Xhosa language, is the same one spoken in the Black Panther.

Now we are approaching the more complicated DOUBLE words, which have baffled Biblical scholars for many years. Modern and ancient Hebrew (which was a Bantu language), has arguably little to nothing in common when it comes to pronunciation of words. Even the experts would agree on this. Some words do (generally) differ, though the essential message of the Old and New Testament would has been very much preserved and is pretty clear. So dont panic thinking everything has been changed or altered. The Almighty is in complete control, and the accuser (Umthyila or Satan as he is know), must ask for permission for everything he wants to do. The gospel is easy and can't be manipulated for someone who really wants to understand, though history has is another matter entirely.

However, there are discrepancies and scribal `artistic freedoms` that has been made in the due course of history, that are bound to bring forth confusion. Essentially, ancient peoples have been trying to understand ancient scrolls using a made up alphabet now with loanwords from all over the world (the moderne pagan languages English (Indo-European), Hebrew, Arabic, etc).

This poses great troubles when the so-called Old Testament brings forth its many renderings and complex double words, which originally must have been written in Xhosa (I mean have a look at the Hebrew in Job and Judges, extremely complex). The point is that much of the detailed historical information (cultural, historical, geographical) don`t make much sense in ancient Hebrew, so-called Aramaic and or even Phoenician for that matter. The picture becomes less complex and easier on the mind (without the need to add crazy systems like matres lectionis, shewa or dagesh rules). So, lets leave the middle east, and travel further south, towards Africa in search for a better understanding of these double-phrases (poetical tools) `hidden in plain sight` all over the Bible. Lets read them in a Bantu context, shall we :)

Tile Tile - this is a manoeuvre (doing a certain job or specific manoeuvre)

Mene Mene - which we have talked about before is a transgressor, or the more popularly understood hypocrite. If you want to know what kind of person this is, read Daniel 5,25 and the infamous writing on the wall`, to get a firmer grip of what kind of person this is describing, people saying to someone that they will do it this way and in the other moment they flip on you and say something else or do something else
