Peter GardikesTim, the book is written in dialog form, similar to Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Grand Inquisitor Chapter in "The Brothers Karamazov". It is based on two premises. Premise #1, history is doomed to repeat itself, especially when people don't know history. Premise #2, from a biblical perspective, many times prophetic events have foreshadowing events (similar events) that occured 100's of years previously, in this case 2700 years previously, that causes Premise #1 to be true. With premise #2 you could say that historical events are cyclical and repeat.
The "they" are people/politicians doing acts/saying things about events that have occurred and also causing events to occur; without their knowledge of this history and/or what they are doing historically. "They" are not following a written script, except for the speeches that may be written their speechwriters. The acts and speeches all appear to have good intention. However, some of what is being said/done in reaction to events are historically the same events that occurred 2700 years ago by the leaders and rulers of the Kingdom of Israel (Capital Samaria) after being first attacked by the Assyrians. That is the point that the author is making....and it didn't work out so good for the Kingdom of Israel either. In the dialog, he provides more than 100 references where you can lookup the website, book, etc for yourself.
Here is an example of: "they" acting in line with prior events without "they" knowing that what "they" are doing include: After 9/11, Tom Daschel (the Senate Majority Leader) addressed the Senate and the USA the morning of 09/12/2001. Daschel said, "There is a passage from the Bible in Isaiah that I think speaks to all of us at times like this. 'The bricks have fallen down but we will rebuild with dressed stone. The fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.' That is what we will do." Daschle was quoting Issiah 9. It sounds innocent enough. It sounds conforting. In fact the intent of his speech was to comfort US citizens 24 hours after 9/11. However, historically, Issiah wrote those words (translated into English) as an example of the arrogance of the Kingdom of Israel after the Assyrians had first attacked. The point that Issiah was making was that instead of the Kingdom of Israel turning to God, prayer, and love; they turned to pride, arrogance, and made statements about security ("we will rebuild" bigger, stronger, better).
Another example: With 9/11, "the bricks" of the twin towers did come down. In 2004, a company called Innovative Stone donated a 20 ton polished stone to World Trade Center / Ground Zero site. It is called the "Freedom Stone" and was dedicated as the cornerstone to the contruction of the new tower at ground zero "as a symbol of triumph and renewal". This was done in full ceremony. "The bricks have fallen down but we will rebuild with dressed stone."
My own personal opinion; if one event repeats itself, then ok maybe it's no big deal. If two events repeat themselves, still may be no big deal. When events keep repeating again and again; then it becomes something that I raise an eyebrow to."
