XII. Greenland‎ > ‎

12.03 Canaan


is the term used to describe the “Promised Land” in the Holy Bible, the allegorical and metaphorical history book of the Greco-Roman Empire. Canaan is depicted a land flowing with milk and honey that was first spied on, attacked, and ultimately conquered as depicted in Numbers 13:17, “And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them, Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain”. The mountain is evidently a reference to Mt. Olympus in Greenland (i.e., the North Pole). The term “Canaan” (C/K+N+N), which acronymically speaking equates to “Con North”, was likely derived from “Chania, Crete, the founding city of the Greco-Roman Empire. According to noted American archeologist William Dever, archaeological evidence suggests that the Israelites arose peacefully and internally in the “highlands” of Canaan. Coincidentally, Greenland is considered the highest land on Earth, hence the Scottish Highlands which border it. Because Greenland is shaped like the head of a wolf (i.e., the Beast of Greenland), the term “canine” (C/K+N+N) is the scientific name for the dog and wolf family. The letter “R”, which is an acronym for Rome, is referred to as the “littera canina” or the canine letter. The letter “R” can be trilled to sound like a growling dog as evidenced by the word “perro”, the Spanish word for dog. The term “K9” (i.e., “canine”) can be translated numerically to “11-9”, the same numbers found within the date of the September 11 Attacks (i.e., 9/11) which were ordered by the Greco-Roman Empire in Greenland. Lastly, because Canaan is in fact Greenland, the Roman Catholic Church adheres to Canon law (Greenland Law) while the process of declaring a person to be a Saint is entitled Canonization.

Cannons of Canaan
Since the Romans invented gunpowder, it stands to reason that they also invented cannons. The mobile forms of artillery are evidently depicted in the Holy Bible in references to Canaan, although they are called “hornets”, likely due to the buzzing noise made by cannon balls when airborne. Exodus 23:28 states, “And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee”, two other Bible verses depict hornets as a destroyer which is stronger than the sword and the bow. Needless to say, only gunpowder-based weaponry are more powerful than the sword and the bow and arrow. Deuteronomy 7:20 states, “Moreover the Lord thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed”, an apparent reference to mayhem and carnage of cannon-based warfare. Joshua 24:12 states, “And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow”, another apparent reference to the power of the cannon. Lastly, the genocide inflicted on Canaan by cannons was captured in Psalm 106:38, which states. “And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood”.

Daughters of Canaan
In what appears to be the internal power struggle within the Greco-Roman Empire over whether to interbreed with the native Giants of Greenland, four separate verses are found in Genesis explicitly stating that “thou shalt not take a wife” of the daughters of Canaan. Firstly, Genesis 24:3 states, “And I will make thee swear by the Lord, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell”. Secondly, Genesis 24:37 states, “And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell”. Thirdly, Genesis 28:1 states, “And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan”. Lastly, Genesis 28:6 states, “When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.” In the end, the Greco-Romans decided to interbreed with the native Canaanites, ultimately becoming giants themselves (i.e., Nephilim). Their decision is evident in at least four Bible verses within Genesis and 1 Chronicles. Firstly, Genesis 28:8 states, “And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father”. Secondly, Genesis 36:2 states, “Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite”. Thirdly, Genesis 38:2 states, “And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her”. Lastly, 1 Chronicles 2:3 states, “The sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah: which three were born unto him of the daughter of Shua the Canaanitess. And Er, the firstborn of Judah, was evil in the sight of the Lord; and he slew him”.

Canaan Cut Off

Once Greenland was conquered by the Greco-Roman Empire, a decision was made to cut off Greenland from the rest of the underworld, permanently. This decision is evidently depicted in Joshua 7:9 which states, “For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?”. Aside from the Greenland Saga which was produced in relatively modern times, the name and country of Greenland has been stricken from the historical record. In order to prevent explores and tourists from accidentally re-discovering Greenland, a buffer zone known as “No Man’s Land” was created around Greenland in northern Canada and Russia, the two largest countries on Earth. No Man’s Land is evidently depicted in Zephaniah 2:5, which states, “Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! The word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.”

The Dark Tower Series
The Dark Tower” series by Steven King contains multiple references to the Bible, Canaan, Greenland and Rome, albeit in a disguised manner. For example, New Canaan is the name of the Barony in which the capital city of Gilead is located. The name of “Gilead” (G+L+D), which is referred to in the Bible as “the mount of Gilead", acronymically and/or consonantly equates to “Greenland Day”, a reference to the 24/7 sunlight of Greenland via Earth’s second moon. Like Canaan in the Bible, Gilead is known as the “Land of Milk and Honey”. It is also the seat of “The Affiliation” which is the name of the alliance formed by the Inner Baronies in the wake of the collapse of the Kingdom of All-World after the unified Kingdom fractured into smaller governmental entities. The Affiliation appears to be a direct reference to the Fall of the Rome and the hundreds of governments which were formed in its aftermath. The Dark Tower also states that “People say that all roads lead to Gilead”, an obvious reference to the idiom “All roads lead to Rome”. Barony of New Canaan is touted as the innermost barony at the Center of the light and civilization whose capital is Gilead. This is likely a references to Thule, the capital of Greenland which sits atop Mt. Olympus in Greenland. Gilead is surrounded by a defensive wall, an apparent reference to the Great Wall of Greenland which in northern Canada and Russia. Lastly, Eld was a country ruled by Arthur Eld, 29 generations prior to the time of Roland, a possible reference to multiple generations spawned by the 13 bloodlines of Rome in Greenland.
