    ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS = THE ORIGINS OF JUDAISM; CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM

    in Religion

    THE FOUNDATION OF MAJOR RELIGIONS


    It has been suggested that the phrase, "Abrahamic religion", may simply mean that all these religions come from one spiritual source. Christians refer to Abraham as a "father in faith".[Rom. 4] There is an Islamic religious term, Millat Ibrahim (faith of Ibrahim), indicating that Islam sees itself as having practices tied to the traditions of Abraham. Jewish tradition claims descendance from Abraham, and adherents follow his practices and ideals as the first of the three spiritual "fathers" or BIBLICAL PATRIARCHS: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.


    All the major Abrahamic religions claim a direct lineage to ABRAHAM. 


    Abrahamic religions (also SEMITIC religions) are monotheistic religions of West Asian origin, emphasizing and tracing their common origin to Abraham or recognizing a spiritual tradition identified with him. They comprise one of the major divisions in religion. 


    As of the early 21st century, it was estimated that 54% of the world's population (3.8 billion people) considered themselves adherents of the Abrahamic religions, about 30% of other religions, and 16% of no organized religion.


    The largest Abrahamic religions in chronological order of founding are Judaism (1st millennium BCE), Christianity(1st century CE), and Islam(7th century CE).

    ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS = THE ORIGINS OF JUDAISM; CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM = 2

    in Religion

    WE CONTINUE WITH PART TWO


    ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS PART 2


    Most people know that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all descended from Abraham, the Patriarch of the three Semitic faiths. If these three religious “children” all came from the same “Father” so to speak, why can’t they all just get along? The reason why Judaism, Christianity and Islam seem at odds with each other can be understood as a result of the original purpose for each religion. First off, Judaism was meant only for the Jewish people -- no one else.

    God says in the Old Testament, in Deuteronomy 6:4, “Hear ye O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord.” This is exactly what Jesus himself quotes to his followers when they ask him: “What is the highest commandment?” Hardly surprising -- most people know Jesus was Jewish, that he was raised as a Jew and that he observed all the laws and rituals associated with Judaism. Jesus himself says he did not come to destroy the Mosaic Law (Matt. 5:17) and that his mission as stated in Matt. 15:24 was only to “gather the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel” – the Jews, in Judea and elsewhere. Specifically, Jesus came as the Messiah for the Jewish people to reform them of their worldliness and hard-heartedness. Jesus also came to prepare the Jews for their next Prophet, one who would be like Moses and whose type and nature of prophethood (Law-bearing verbal revelation) along with the location of his advent (Mount Paran in Arabia) are mentioned clearly in Deuteronomy 18:18-21 and Deuteronomy 33:2. (Paul, a Rabbinical Jew educated under Gamaliel in the exegesis of the Torah and its numerous prophecies, must certainly have understood these prophecies and their import. This would explain why he went to Arabia for three years after initially converting to Christianity in 35 AD.

    Why Are You Not Excited? As it Was...So Shall It Be.

    in Religion

    Here in the US, and around the globe, the homosexual rage against God, and in favor of lust, masquerading as love, gains momentum. In America, the Supreme Court ruled that states cannot ban homosexuals from marrying one another.


    And the people of God moan...but why? Have you forgotten what He told you? Luke 17:


    26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
    28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
    29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
    30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.


    The times are exciting and now is not a time for mourning. As He is soon to be revealed, it is our task to prepare for Him, and help others, who wish to see Him in peace, to do the same.
