The final prophet is referred to by many different names. The Urantia Book calls him "another and greater John the Baptist." Isaiah refers to him as "God’s servant." Malachi calls him "Elijah." The Dead Sea Scrolls refer to him as "the interpreter of the law" and "the Priest." 1Enoch calls him "the dabela" which is a mountain goat with a large single horn. The names are different but the activities and the messianic time of his appearance are all the same. Separating out this information we have:

God’s Servant, Final Prophet


. Elijah to come (Malachi 3:23)
. another and Greater John the Baptist (UB)
. interpreter of the Law (DSC)
. the Priest (DSC)
. interpreter of Knowledge (DSC)
. God’s servant (Isaiah)
. dabela (mountain goat, large horn) 1Enoch

And so, we read tomorrow’s newspaper today. This part of 1Enoch is an important piece of scripture, which outlines certain events, in the messianic time period just ahead that concern the elect. The sheep are symbolic of God’s traditional peoples, mostly Christians and Jews. These people give birth to a new people (lambs) of God, who "begin to open their eyes" (? as a result of new revelation.) As the lambs awaken to the newly discovered realities of the kingdom of heaven, they call to their predecessors (Christians and Jews: sheep) to open their eyes too. But the traditional peoples of God (the sheep) have been blinded by the false teachings of the past and they are "deaf, blind, and obdurate in the greatest degrees." The lambs, I believe, are the congregation of those who elect God’s will.

1Enoch 89:10 I saw in the vision that ravens flew down upon those lambs;

1Enoch 89:11 That they seized one of them; and that tearing the sheep in pieces, they devoured them.

1Enoch 89:12 I saw also, that horns grew upon those lambs; and that the ravens lighted down upon their horns.

The ravens symbolize the evil ones of the world who attack the innocent lambs because the lambs understand the evil that is transpiring in the world and have become a threat to the powers that be. As a result of the open attack on the lambs, the elect become fully cognizant of the evil that exists and therefore they increase in strength, as symbolized by the growing of horns, which always symbolize power (good or bad).

1Enoch 89:9-11 Then I kept seeing till one great horn sprouted on one of those sheep, and he opened their (the lambs) eyes, and they had vision in them and their eyes were opened. He cried aloud to the sheep, and all the rams saw him and ran unto him. (1Enoch; Pseudoepigrapha, James Charlesworth).

The ram with the "great horn" "opens the eyes" of the others probably by revealing God’s plan for the messianic age. I believe He is the final prophet to come. The rams are the strongest ones among the lambs and sheep, and run to join the final prophet (one with the great horn) after the revelation is made to them.

1Enoch 89:11-12 In spite of this, all those eagles, vultures, ravens, and kites until now continue to rip the sheep (Christians and Jews) swooping down on them and eating them. As for the sheep they remain silent; but the rams are lamenting and crying aloud. Those ravens gather and battle with him (the large horned ram/prophet) and seek to remove his horn (his power), but without success. (James Charlesworth). (my parentheses)

In the verse above , we witness the persecution and killing of the sheep (predominantly Jews and Christians). The stronger ones among the Christians (the rams) cry out and lament while the rest of the sheep remain silent and blind.

1Enoch 89:13 I saw thereafter the shepherds coming; and those vultures and kites cried aloud to the ravens so that they would smash the horn of that ram with the great horn (the prophet). But he (the prophet) battled with them, and they (shepherds) fought each other, and he (prophet) cried aloud, while battling them, so that God’s help would come. (James Charlesworth). (my parentheses)

The shepherds are the misleaders who are supposed to be tending the flock, but are instead killing and enslaving the sheep. The ram with the great horn (the Dabela), the final prophet, calls to God for help as he battles against the agents of evil (shepherd leaders and henchmen ravens).

1Enoch 89:22 He (the man) brought assistance, and caused every one to see him descending to the help of the dabela.

The "Lord of the sheep" is Melchizedek and the "dabela" is the ram with the great horn, the Final Prophet. The man who writes down the iniquities of the shepherds is an unidentified helper or assistant of Melchizedek’s. This helper "descends" to the aid of the prophet in plain sight for "everyone" to see! How does he descend in plain sight?

1Enoch 89:24 All came together, and strove to break the horn of the dabela.
