What was labeled ‘the apocrypha’ (usually the apocalyptic visions had by many of the scribes of the Bible) was taken out of the modern Holy Bible. They felt that the knowledge in these sections was too advanced, too difficult to believe or too controversial for the common people to know. Known as 4 Ezra in some bibles, 2nd Esdras, or sometimes Latin Esdras, it would have originally been appended to the end of Ezra, just before Nehemiah.
General info: 2nd Esdras (also called 4 Esdras, Latin Esdras, or Latin Ezra) is the name of an apocalyptic book in many versions of the Bible. Its authorship is ascribed to Ezra, a scribe and priest of the 5th century BCE. It is reckoned among the apocrypha by Roman Catholics, Protestants, and most Eastern Orthodox Christians. 2 Esdras was excluded by Jerome from his Vulgate version of the Old Testament, but from the 9th century onwards the Latin text is sporadically found as an appendix to the Vulgate, inclusion becoming more general after the 13th century.
Ezra is a man alive at the fall of Jerusalem, and is put into a position of prominence among his remnant peoples. It tells the great tale of his experiences, his love for God and his deep concern for his fellow people. In speaking with God, (and because he is a truly righteous man) Ezra is gifted with beautiful explanations of many of the most poignant parts of history, such as the mysteries of life on earth and the future of God’s creation. An incredible amount of knowledge is passed to him. It is said (in the text itself) that this book is meant to be an addition to Daniel and Revelation. 4 Ezra or Second Esdras is now considered a part of the standard ‘apocrypha’, and can be found via the list attached ‘official apocrypha’ to many types of bibles, including the 1611 KJV. It is a wonderful book.
The roman catholic church has held many councils through the years, (Nicea, Laodicea,) which removed key portions of the original text of the Bible. Also, on the political social front, post protestant-reformation, the roman catholic church has also held councils (like v@tican 2, Verona/Vienna, etc) wherein papal bulls and broad, generalized decrees were made. This part of the Book Of Ezra was removed from the Holy Bible. (Some versions which contain the apocrypha may still contain this portion).
The part at the beginning where He describes the river, is the Ar Sareth rive (Colossians 2:9) “For in JESUS dwelleth the fullness of the GODHEAD.” JESUS the FATHER, JESUS the CHRIST/SON, JESUS the HOLY SPIRIT. In Paleo-HEBREW/GREEK [HIS] name is (ΙΗΣΟΥΣ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ), Ἰησοῦς. His name was never pronounced “EA-SOUS”. With the letter “iot/jot” if you have a consonant after the letter “iot/jot” the name has the letter I sound. If you have a vowel after the letter “iot/jot” the name has the letter J sound. By rule, the O is silent. Therefore, when the apostles spoke to Christ they called Him (ΙΗΣΟΥΣ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ), Ἰησοῦς, Iesous, or JESUS2nd Esdras
2 Esdras 11 – The Power Behind The Governments, Always Hidden. One Empire Since UNHoly Roman Empire Founded.
1 Then saw I a dream, and, behold, there came up from the sea an eagle, which had twelve feathered wings, and three heads.
2 And I saw, and, behold, she spread her wings over all the earth, and all the winds of the air blew on her, and were gathered together.
3 And I beheld, and out of her feathers there grew other contrary feathers; and they became little feathers and small.
4 But her heads were at rest: the head in the midst was greater than the other, yet rested it with the residue.
5 Moreover I beheld, and, lo, the eagle flew with her feathers, and reigned upon earth, and over them that dwelt therein.
6 And I saw that all things under heaven were subject unto her, and no man spake against her, no, not one creature upon earth.
7 And I beheld, and, lo, the eagle rose upon her talons, and spake to her feathers, saying,
8 Watch not all at once: sleep every one in his own place, and watch by course:
9 But let the heads be preserved for the last.
10 And I beheld, and, lo, the voice went not out of her heads, but from the midst of her body.
11 And I numbered her contrary feathers, and, behold, there were eight of them.
12 And I looked, and, behold, on the right side there arose one feather, and reigned over all the earth;
13 And so it was, that when it reigned, the end of it came, and the place thereof appeared no more: so the next following stood up. and reigned, and had a great time;
14 And it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came also, like as the first, so that it appeared no more.
15 Then came there a voice unto it, and said,
16 Hear thou that hast borne rule over the earth so long: this I say unto thee, before thou beginnest to appear no more,
17 There shall none after thee attain unto thy time, neither unto the half thereof.
18 Then arose the third, and reigned as the other before, and appeared no more also.
19 So went it with all the residue one after another, as that every one reigned, and then appeared no more.
20 Then I beheld, and, lo, in process of time the feathers that followed stood up upon the right side, that they might rule also; and some of them ruled, but within a while they appeared no more:
21 For some of them were set up, but ruled not.
22 After this I looked, and, behold, the twelve feathers appeared no more, nor the two little feathers:
23 And there was no more upon the eagle’s body, but three heads that rested, and six little wings.
24 Then saw I also that two little feathers divided themselves from the six, and remained under the head that was upon the right side: for the four continued in their place.
25 And I beheld, and, lo, the feathers that were under the wing thought to set up themselves and to have the rule.
26 And I beheld, and, lo, there was one set up, but shortly it appeared no more.
27 And the second was sooner away than the first.
28 And I beheld, and, lo, the two that remained thought also in themselves to reign:
29 And when they so thought, behold, there awaked one of the heads that were at rest, namely, it that was in the midst; for that was greater than the two other heads.
30 And then I saw that the two other heads were joined with it.
31 And, behold, the head was turned with them that were with it, and did eat up the two feathers under the wing that would have reigned.
32 But this head put the whole earth in fear, and bare rule in it over all those that dwelt upon the earth with much oppression; and it had the governance of the world more than all the wings that had been.
33 And after this I beheld, and, lo, the head that was in the midst suddenly appeared no more, like as the wings.
34 But there remained the two heads, which also in like sort ruled upon the earth, and over those that dwelt therein.
35 And I beheld, and, lo, the head upon the right side devoured it that was upon the left side.
