Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws

Dancing in the Dragons Jaws: The Mystery of Israel's Survival
This book is a ground-breaking exposition of Revelation chapter 12 which documents the unparalleled history, purpose and future of Israel over some 4,000 years. The continuing chaos of the Middle East becomes explicable. We also find explanations of the mysterious comings of Elijah (Matt 16:10-11), the times of the Gentiles (Luke 21:24), the mystery of the partial hardening of Israel (Rom 11:25) and the recurring theme in Daniel and Revelation of “a time, times and half a time” (Dan 7:25, 12:7, Rev 12:14).

Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Slouching Towards Bethlehem: The Rise of the Antichrists
It is often thought today that the keys to understanding the Book of Revelation have been lost and are irretrievable but they’re not. They were just buried under centuries of rubble created by theGentile church’s foolish attempts to distance itself from its Jewish foundations. If, like any archaeologist, we dig carefully we can rediscover them.

In Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws, we found one key to understanding Revelation chapter 12 is the metaphorical “time, times and half a time” and we unlocked the last 4,000 years of Jewish history. This book, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, unlocks Revelation chapter 13 and the last 2,000 years of the Christian era, with startling results. Not only can we now understand the forces shaping history and the deaths of some 270 million in 20th Century genocides but we can also project the future of Israel and the Middle East. Slouching Towards Bethlehem is Graeme’s sixth book, and the second in his ground-breaking series on the Book of Revelation.

Gotta Serve Somebody

Gotta Serve Somebody: The mystery of the Marks & 666
Confused about ‘The Mark of the Beast’? If so, you’re not alone – the mark and the number 666 have been controversial for centuries. Scholars and laymen alike have offered numerous interpretations, ‘calculations’ and wild guesses but while most predictions have failed to materialize, some say we just have to wait.

In this book, Graeme uses the keys recovered in the first two in this series (Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws and Slouching Towards Bethlehem) to unlock the symbols and ‘times’ of the most infamous and misunderstood mark in human history.

Instead of waiting for a world government and/or global banking system that may never eventuate, Graeme believes and shows that The Mark is already here — and has been for the last 2,000 years! We’ve just not recognised it.

Digging into the Law of Moses, we find that this mark is actually the beast’s counterpart of marks that God Himself placed 3,500 years ago on the forehead and hand of His people, at the Exodus and in the wilderness, with a numbering system of names as described in the Book of Numbers. Graeme then shows how we have also been hampered by a simple mistranslation of Matthew 18:22.

We don’t need a profound theological education or esoteric enlightenment but we do need a basic grasp of Jewish history and the Old Testament, as already understood by 1st Century Jewish believers in Jesus of Nazareth.

Silencing the Witnesses

Silencing the Witnesses: Jerusalem & the Ascent of Secularism
Moses and Elijah back from the dead? The most popular interpretation of Revelation 11 today is literal – Moses and Elijah are soon to reappear in the streets of Jerusalem, preach for three and a half years, be killed by a metaphorical beast, i.e. a man called the Antichrist, and be resurrected again after three and a half days.

The most common academic view today, however, is that these are all metaphorical images, referring to the church being persecuted initially by the Romans, today by the whole world, but ultimately vindicated.

In this book, Graeme takes the metaphorical approach but from a Jewish perspective. The Early Church was, after all, led by Jewish disciples and/or Gentiles taught by Jewish disciples. He shows how the two witnesses would have been understood by John’s 1st Century audience to be the Law and the Prophets, making essential connections with Jesus’ parable of the rich man and Lazarus, and with Paul’s two Jerusalems in Galatians 4.

In doing so, Graeme surveys the effects of the Law over 3,500 years of Jewish history, how it still applies to every Jew not under the New Covenant, and how it is relevant for all of us today.

About the Author

From the beginning of his ministry on the streets of Christchurch in 1973, Graeme was confronted by the multitude of ideas and beliefs held by sects, cults and orthodox churches. This kept him focused on how to understand the Scriptures while working for seven years as an interdenominational evangelist followed by 15 years as an elder and teacher.
After a brief spell in Nepal with INF (International Nepal Fellowship) and in Colorado with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) Graeme returned to New Zealand where he served as a Baptist minister for seven years. He is now an itinerant teacher and author.
