    The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs (Judah)\Testamentos dos Doze Patriarcas

    in Spirituality

    Os Testamentos dos Doze Patriarcas, é um livro apócrifo bíblico pseudoepigráfico, intertestamentário, que se refere a discursos e recomendações atribuídas aos doze filhos de Jacó, antes de morrerem. Figurou em códices e listas do Cânon da Bíblia da Igreja Apostólica da Armênia, pelo menos até o século XIV. Foram introduzidos no Ocidente no Séc XIII, através da tradução latina de Robert Grosseteste, bispo de Lincoln, que se tornou imediatamente popular, acreditando ser uma verdadeira obra dos doze filhos de Jacó, e que as interpolações cristãs eram um produto genuíno da profecia judaica; ele acusou os judeus de esconder os Testamentos "por conta das profecias do Salvador contidas neles." Fragmentos de escritos semelhantes foram encontrados mais tarde em Qumran.

    The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs is an apocryphal book pseudepigraphic biblical, intertestamental, which refers to speeches and recommendations assigned to the twelve sons of Jacob, before they die. Figured in codices and lists of the canon of the Bible of the Armenian Apostolic Church, at least until the fourteenth century. Were introduced in the West in the thirteenth century, through the Latin translation of Robert Grosseteste, Bishop of Lincoln, who became instantly popular, believing it to be a true work of the twelve sons of Jacob, and that the Christian interpolations were a genuine product of Jewish prophecy; he accused Jews of concealing the Testaments "on account of the prophecies of the Saviour contained in them." Fragments of similar writings were later found at Qumran.

    In Fiction God Is Immoral And Yeshua's Death Is a Crime Against Humanity Why?

    in Music

    The bible presents the word God in a fictional context, because African and Mesopotamian religion has no history for God as a person. The following is what maked God and Jesus a fraud: [The Mesopotamian  first human religion was, of course, {pagan}   and {polytheistic,} and is therefore saparated by a profound spiritual gulf from the monotheism of Judaism and Christianity. Moreover, both the Old and New Testaments are imbued with an ethical sensitivity and moral fervor that have no counterparts in the comparable Mesopotamian  documents. Neither Sumer, nor Babylon, nor Assyria ever  arrived at the lofty persuasion that a "pure heart" and "clean hands" were spiritually more meaningful than elaborate riturals and sacrifices. The bond of love between god and man, while not entirely absent from Mesopotamian  religious thought, is certainly  far less significant there than it is in Judaism and Christianity. But the early Mesopotamians did develop the concept  of a personal and  family god, echoed in the Biblical "god of Abraham, Isaac  and Jacob"--and between this guardian deity and his adoring worshipper there was a tender, close and trusting relationship comparable in some ways to the one that exist between Jehovah and the patriarchs. Mesopotamian literature, like its [religion]  and law,  has also affected the entire Western world.

    The Difference Between Paradise and the Garden of Eden

    in Religion

    There is a difference between paradise located at the third heaven, and the garden of Eden here on the Earth. Paradise was created to house the holy. New Jerusalem awaits there as a place of rest for the elect and chosen righteous and will be revealed by the Lord post judgment.  The Bible says that out of the mouths of two of three witnesses shall the truth be established.  Given that principle I will utilize certain scriptures to prove that indeed paradise and the garden of Eden are different places.  These scriptures each separately describe the 10 levels of heaven as experienced by patriarchs such as Enoch (The Book of Enoch), Isaiah (The Martyrdom of Isaiah), Paul (The Vision of Paul), and Peter (The Apocalypse of Peter).  The collective accounting that these patriarchs together provide, confirm the various levels of heaven and that paradise is located at the third heaven.  Paradise is where the 2nd created Adam was placed after his initial formation on the 6th day.  There Eve was separated from him and tasked with being a help mate.  Paradise is also where Lucifer seduced Eve and impregnated her with Cain.  The tree of life, whose fruit shall restore immortality to the righteous elect granted salvation at the second coming of Yahushuah Savior Messiah, stands proudly there  highlighting paradise and awaiting humanity with promise of eternal life.

    "A MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY"

    in Christianity

    There is a cause for alarm in the condition of the religious world today. God’s mercy has been trifled with. The multitude make void the law of Jehovah, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Infidelity prevails in many of the churches in our land; not infidelity in its broadest sense,—an open denial of the Bible,—but an infidelity that is robed in the garb of Christianity, while it is undermining faith in the Bible as a revelation from God. Fervent devotion and vital piety have given place to hollow formalism. As the result, apostasy and sensualism prevail. Christ declared, “As it was in the days of Lot, ... even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” The daily record of passing events testifies to the fulfillment of His words. The world is fast becoming ripe for destruction. Soon the judgments of God are to be poured out, and sin and sinners are to be consumed.—Patriarchs and Prophets, 166. – {ChS 56.1}

    Up Out of Mizraim pt2 -The Golden Calf

    in Lifestyle

    Rinnah Bat Yisra'el (Donna W. Dixon) of Arizona dechipers, words, shares her thoughts and experiences concerning..... Ha'Shem's Transforming Presence of Transition of His People by Torah, and Experience.
    Shemot/Exodus 32:1, 5,6
    When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”
    When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the L-rd.” So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings. Afterward they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.
    Been made to come up out of Mizraim with The Mighty Arm of Ha'Shem.
    What do we learn from this "ascent".
    What is a Golden Calf?
    Why make one after all that we have witnessed in Mizraim?
    How did the Patriarchs, Avraham, Yitzak and Yakov handle Mizraim??
    What does this have to do with us today??
    Join us as we discuss this controversial event in the History of the People Yisra'el.
    Shalom!
