COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2} DISCOURSE ON LUKE 4:41


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 764A]

By skillful direction [“by skillful strategy,” The Revised English Bible] you will carry on your war, and in the multitude of counselors there is salvation.” Proverbs 20:18; 24:6.

Like a strategist organizing a battle, we do well to anticipate potential dangers to our spirituality (Proverbs 22:3). For example, you may have to decide whether to accept a new job or promotion at work. You would logically consider pay, travel time to and from work, and other details. However, there are other points to keep in mind: Will the type of work be compatible with The Inspired Word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible’s principles? How might the hours, such as with shift work, affect my Christian activities per Luke 14:28-30.

[2] DISCOURSE ON MATTHEW 26:61

Matthew 26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. [KJB-Authorized King James Bible]

Matthew 26:63 But Jesus was silent. And the high priest answering said to him, I adjure thee by the living God that thou tell us if *thou* art the Christ the Son of God. [The Darby Translation]

Now we can see from Matthew 26:63 that Jesus (Yeshua) clearly is the Son of God and this is clearly confirmed by two translations which have very different translation styles. Now let's see what one renown Bible scholar has to say on this scripture to get additional insight.
"The Lord had finished His discourses. He prepares (chap. 26) to suffer, and to make His last and touching adieus to His disciples, at the table of His last passover on earth, at which He instituted, the simple and precious memorial which recalls His sufferings and His love with such profound interest. This part of our Gospel requires little explanation-not, assuredly, that it is of less interest, but because it needs to be felt rather than explained.
With what simplicity the Lord announces that which was to happen! (v. 2). He had already arrived at Bethany, six days before the passover (John 12:1): there He abode, with the exception of the last supper, until He was taken captive in the garden of Gethsemane, although He visited Jerusalem, and partook of His last meal there.
We have already examined the discourses uttered during those six days, as well as His actions, such as the cleansing of the temple. That which precedes this chapter (26) is either the manifestation of His rights as Emmanuel, King of Israel, or that of the judgment of the great King with respect to the people-a judgment expressed in discourses to which the people could make no answer; or, finally, the condition of His disciples during His absence. We have now His submission to the sufferings appointed Him, to the judgment about to be executed upon Him; but which was, in truth, only the fulfilment of the counsels of God His Father, and of the work of His own love." [John Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament]
Now we noted in all the above Scriptures it calls Jesus Christ (Yeshua) the Son of God; interesting since if the Trinity was true, it would read God the Son instead of the Son of God. The renown Bible scholar, John Darby, clearly stated, "We have now His submission to the sufferings appointed Him, to the judgment about to be executed upon Him; but which was, in truth, only the fulfilment of the counsels of God His Father, and of the work of His own love." This clearly shows that this Son, Jesus (Yeshua), had a Father (YHWH) that he loved and was obedient to and he was NOT the same personage as his Father (YHWH) as the Devil has miss-lead many into believing. That many were miss-lead is not surprising as the Bible clearly stated, "Matthew 22:14 For many are called ones, but few chosen ones. [The Darby Translation]."

[2] DISCOURSE ON LUKE 4:41

Luke 4:41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ. (Authorized King James - AV)

This scripture gives further testimony to Jesus (Yeshua) truly being God's (YHWH's) Son since it gives solid evidence that even the demons (devils in King James translation) knew and stated that he was, "Christ the Son of God." It is interesting that this is translated in The Darby Translation as, "and demons also went out from many, crying out and saying, *Thou* art the Son of God. And rebuking them, he suffered them not to speak, because they knew him to be the Christ." Jesus (Yeshua) did not want them to reveal the fact that he was the Christ or promised one, the Son of God, so he, "he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ." This fact is further emphasised at Mark 1:34, "And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him." Here we see both the renown Apostle Luke and the renown Disciple Mark clearly giving the same account in different words, but nevertheless testifying to the same fact that the demons knew Jesus (Yeshua) to be the Son of God and NOT God the Son.

Clearly even the demons, Satan's workers, knew that Jesus (Yeshua) was a separate entity from his Father (YHWH) and that in fact he was the only begotten Son of Almighty God (YHWH). The demons were not happy to see God's (YHWH's) Son as clearly shown at Matthew 8:28-32, "And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters." (AV). In fact they were so unhappy and fearful at seeing the Son of God, they said, "they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?" here the demons also showed they knew the End Times was definitely coming, but that it was not yet do. So from these scriptures we learn or reassert to important facts, first, the Son of God is a distinct and separate entity from his Father (YHWH), and not just another manifestation of Almighty God (YHWH); and, second, the demons clearly knew he was the Son of God and James 2:19 shows, "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble" they trembled because of this fact.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2} DISCOURSE ON LUKE 22:70


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 765A]

A wise man shall hear, and shall be wiser: and he that understandeth shall possess governments. He shall understand a parable and the interpretation, the words of the wise, and their mysterious sayings. (Proverbs 1:5-6, Douay Rheims Catholic Bible; DRCB)

Though it calls for effort, we can acquire direction and learn to ‘sail’ successfully on the sea of life. As Proverbs indicates, we have to let ‘wisdom,’ ‘understanding,’ and ‘insight’ work together (Proverbs 1:2-6; 2:1-9). And we can not neglect seeking divine guidance, for even the wicked may know how to ‘steer’ for unjust ends per Proverbs 12:5.

[2] DISCOURSE ON LUKE 22:70

Luke 22:70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. (Authorized King James - AV)

Here some mockers of Jesus (Yeshua) were questioning and making fun of him. Right before this statement he, Jesus (Yeshua) had said, Luke 22:69, "Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God." (AV) clearly telling his mockers that after he finished his earthly course of life as a flesh and blood human that he would go to heaven and sit at the right hand of God (YHWH), his Father, as a spirit being. It is to be noted that he plainly said at the right hand of God (YHWH) clearly showing that he was NOT God (YHWH) or a manifestation of God (YHWH), but would be a separate spirit being that would be working close with his Father in heaven. This is in keeping with John 4:23-24, "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth." (AV) Likewise, when the Son of God returned to heaven, he too would at that time be a spirit being as flesh and blood can not exist in heaven, 1 Corinthians 15:50 ";Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption." (AV) In fact as he was getting ready to return to heaven, Jesus (Yeshua) prayed to his Father (YHWH), John 17:5, "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."(AV) To be returned to his position that he had before coming to the earth. This is very important as it shows that Jesus's Father (YHWH) was the superior one in the entire universe and that Jesus (Yeshua) was an obedient Son and recognized that all power and glory radiated from his Father (YHWH).

Likewise, Jesus (Yeshua) has given him some of his power and glory and in turn he has given some of this power or holy spirit to his followers as shown at John 17:22, "And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one" (AV) this scripture also shows he is one in purpose with his Father (YHWH) and that his followers would be one in purpose with him. This is further shown a few scriptures later at John 17:24, "Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world." (AV). It is to be noted that Jesus (Yeshua) always sought not his own glory but that of his Father (YHWH) and he said, John 7:18, "He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him." (AV) Showing clearly that he sought not his own glory but that of his Father (YHWH) who had sent him. One time when healing an individual he said, John 11:40, "Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?" (AV) emphasizing God's (YHWH's) glory and not his own and showing the need to believe without reservation in his Father (YHWH) for all his followers.

Now, let's return to and learn the contents of Luke 22:70 and what was befalling Jesus (Yeshua), let's look at, Luke 22:63 - 68, "And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him. And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee? And many other things blasphemously spake they against him. And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go." (AV) Thus we clearly see that Jesus (Yeshua) is a separate and distinct entity from his Father (YHWH) and therefore could NOT be a part of a Duality or Trinity of one God existing in various manifestations; for this to be the case the scriptures would have to read God the Son and not the Son of God. Also, God (YHWH) could not have come and given his human life to redeem mankind as the Bible clearly shows that no one has seen God (YHWH) at any time, John 6:46, "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father." As only Jesus (Yeshua) has seen him.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2} DISCOURSE JOHN 1:34


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 766A]

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 2 Timothy 3:1 - 4. (Authorized King James Bible; AV)

Today the world news continues to make us aware that the present days are perilous. We hear more and more about sexual assaults and pedophiles, many going after ever younger victims. These evil ones infiltrate all kinds of organizations, where ever victims can be found. In fact, the University of Pennsylvania was infiltrated by a pedophile assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky. Years ago you seldom heard of such things in the news as it had not yet become a major problem as it now is.

The perpetrators are evil individuals following wicked temptations of Satan the Devil per 2 Corinthians 4:4. In fact, The Inspired Word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible, clearly says at 1 Corinthians 6:9, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, “ We must be on guard against the temptations of the Devil as shown at James 4:7, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” However, pedophiles and other sexual deviants give into the temptations of Satan the Devil and become evil ones.. We must be constantly on guard against such evil ones.

[2] DISCOURSE JOHN 1:34

John 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. (Authorized King James - AV)

Here John the Baptist gave testimony that Jesus (Yeshua) was the Son of God that had come to the earth, been born of the Virgin Mary, and would take away the sins of obedient mankind. Clearly he was not God the Son and/or a manifestation of God (YHWH), but God's (YHWH's) only begotten Son. This is clearly shown at John 1:29-33, as follows, "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost." (AV)

From this scripture, John 1:29-33, we can discern that the Holy Ghost (holy spirit) must be God's (YHWH's) active force and not some spirit person or entity as people are being baptized by it and this included Jesus (Yeshua) as is clearly stated, "And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost." This clearly leads all individuals who apply logic and reasoning and not blind credulity to the logical conclusion that the doctrines of Duality and Trinity are clearly false doctrine and should be rejected by all true Christians. The scripture at John 1:35-36, clearly states, "Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!" (AV) that John the Baptist said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" and not God the Lamb once more showing that Jesus (Yeshua) was not a manifestation of God (YHWH), but clearly his only begotten son. Jesus (Yeshua) himself clearly showed the difference between himself and his Father (YHWH) when he said, John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This was once more reaffirmed by Jesus (Yeshua) at John 3:18, "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (AV). And the renown Apostle John added to the testimony that Jesus (Yeshua) was God's (YHWH's) Son and not a manifestation of God (YHWH) when he said, John 1:18, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." So clearly we see that Jesus (Yeshua) is NOT God (YHWH), but clearly the only begotten Son of God.

COMBINATION OF THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES. With the Scripture of the Day first.

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. [767A]

And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11 – 12, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Sometimes it is necessary for faithful ones and their family to follow through with vows that are painful, but win Almighty God (YHWH) approval. One such case was Jephtah and his God fearing daughter which was reordered at Judges 11:34 - 39, [AV] “And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter. 35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back. 36 And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon. 37 And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows. 38 And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains. 39 And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel,” And this came about by a vow her father made that if he were given victory over Ammon per Judges 11:30 – 31, [AV] “And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, 31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD’S, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.”

[2] Lonicera caerulea (Blue-berried Honeysuckle or Sweetberry Honeysuckle
Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Lonicera caerulea (Blue-berried Honeysuckle or Sweetberry Honeysuckle) is a honeysuckle native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere.
It is a deciduous shrub growing to 1.5–2 m tall. The leaves are opposite, oval, 3–8 cm long and 1–3 cm broad, glaucous green, with a slightly waxy texture. The flowers are yellowish-white, 12–16 mm long, with five equal lobes; they are produced in pairs on the shoots. The fruit is a blue berry about 1 cm in diameter. Classification
There are nine varieties, treated as subspecies by some authors[who?]:
* Lonicera caerulea var. altaica. Northern Asia.
* Lonicera caerulea var. caerulea. Europe.
* Lonicera caerulea var. cauriana. Western North America.
* Lonicera caerulea var. dependens. Central Asia.
* Lonicera caerulea var. edulis, synonym: L. edulis.[1] Eastern Asia.
* Lonicera caerulea var. emphyllocalyx (also known as Haskap). Eastern Asia.
* Lonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica. Northeastern Asia.
* Lonicera caerulea var. pallasii. Northern Asia, northeastern Europe.
Lonicera caerulea var. villosa. Eastern North America.
* Haskap: an ancient Japanese name of the Ainu people (also spelled phonetically as Haskappu, Hascap, Hascup) but still used today in Japan and in North America.
* Blue Honeysuckle: descriptive translation from Russia.
* Honeyberry: coined by Jim Gilbert of One Green World Nursery, Oregon, and fairly common in North America.
* Sweet Berry Honeysuckle: an old common name from the 1940s.
* Swamp fly honeysuckle.[2]
* Known in Russia as "????????? ?????????" ("Edible Honeysuckle").
Distribution and habitat
The species is circumpolar, primarily found in or near wetlands of boreal forests in heavy peat soils. However, it can also be found in high calcium soils, in mountains, and along the northeast coasts of Asia and North America. Interestingly, it is absent on west coasts. It has not been found in Norway nor Alaska nor British Columbia.[citation needed]
Cultivation and uses
Russia's N.I. Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry has the longest history of collecting from the wild[3] and breeding this crop. L. c. var. edulis has been used the most in their breeding efforts but other varieties have been bred with it to increase productivity and flavour. In Japan (Hokkaido Island) and in the Oregon State University Haskap breeding programs, L. c. var. emphyllocalyx has been the dominant variety used.[4] The University of Saskatchewan Breeding Program in Canada is also emphasizing L.c. var. emphyllocalyx but is also hybridizing with Russian varieties and L. c. var. villosa.[5]
Within-row spacing is recommended at 1 meter if growing the plants into a hedge is desired. At 1.5 meters the plants can remain as individual bushes for many years. Plants will grow to be 1.5 to 2 meters tall and wide. It can survive a large range of soil acidity, from 3.9-7.7 (optimum 5.5-6.5).[6][7] Blue-berried honeysuckle plants require high organic matter, well drained soils, and lots of sunlight for optimum productivity. Lonicera caerulea plants are more tolerant of wet conditions than most fruit species. Harvest season can be 2 weeks before strawberries for Russian type varieties but Japanese types will ripen at a similar time to strawberries. Two compatible varieties are needed for cross pollination and fruit set. This is a northern adapted species that can tolerate -45C/F temperatures in winter. In North America most Russian varieties are adapted to Hardiness zones 1 to 4. Likely gardeners living in zones 5 and 6 would need to use the Japanese varieties, which are far less likely to grow during warm periods during winter. The southern range of where this plant could be grown is not yet known. Often it will fruit the following season after being planted, even if very small. Perhaps by the 3rd year 1 pound (1/2 kg) may be harvested. The plants may take three or four years to produce an abundant harvest.[2] Average production on a good bush is about 7 lbs (3 kg).[2]
Blue-berried honeysuckle can be used in processed products: pastries, jams, juice, wine, ice cream, yogurt, sauces, and candies. When frozen fruit is placed in the mouth it melts away. Seeds are not noticeable when eating but if they are observed they are similar in appearance to seeds found in kiwifruit. The skins simply disintegrate which has caused some excitement amongst ice cream and smoothie makers. The fruit also turns dairy products into a bright purple-red. It can make excellent wine, some say[8] similar to grape or cherry wine. The wine will be a rich burgundy colour. Its juice has perhaps a 10 to 15x more concentrated color than cranberry juice.[2]
Flavour, The fruit of blue-berried honeysuckle have been described as similar to raspberries, blueberries, black currants, or saskatoon berries. Bad ones can taste grassy or bitter (like tonic water). However, even the good ones will taste bad if eaten too early. Ornamental varieties were bred at Beaverlodge, Alberta, Canada in the mid 1940s which tasted horrible and were never intended to be eaten. Berries will turn blue on the outside before they are fully ripe inside. If the berries are green inside, they are not ripe; they should be a deep purple red inside when fully ripened.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON BAD ASSOCIATIONS:

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 768A]


Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:5 – 6, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

James, the brother of Jesus (Yeshua) wrote under inspiration at James 3:17, [AV] “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” And as stated at James 5:8, [AV] “Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” Jesus (Yeshua) said to his disciples at
Luke 12:22, [AV] “And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.” Yes, if we lack wisdom, it is stated at James 1:5, [AV] “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” Truly, per Psalms 145:18, [AV] “The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 1:49

John 1:49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. [Authorized King James - AV]

This is an interesting scripture that by itself looks somewhat strange, but considered in content it shows a man believing in Jesus (Yeshua) over a little thing. However, many who should believe in Jesus (Yeshua) who have access to much more information about the Messiah fail to recognize him as the Son of God as did Nathanael, see John 1:45-48, "Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!" Nathanael said to Him, "How do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." (AU) Then Jesus (Yeshua) said to him, John 1:50, "Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these."

These scriptures are reinforced by the testimony of other renown Apostles, Luke 24:25-27, "And *he* said to them, O senseless and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory? And having begun from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself." (The Darby Translation) Which clearly shows the vanity of believing in senseless things such as the Duality and/or Trinity instead of believing that Jesus (Yeshua) is clearly the Son of God, a distinct entity apart from his Father (YHWH), as did Nathanael. This is made certain by the Apostle John at John 1:35-38, "Again on the morrow John was standing, and two of his disciples; and he looked upon Jesus as he walked, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. And Jesus turned, and beheld them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? And they said unto him, Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher), where abideth thou?" (American Standard Version - ASV). Thus we can clearly discern that Jesus (Yeshua) is the Lamb of God or Logos [word], the Son of God, John 1:14 says, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (AV) and clearly shows that he is "the only begotten of the Father" and not just a manifestation of his Father (YHWH); to be just a manifestation instead of a distinct entity separate and apart from his Father (YHWH) the scriptures would need to read 'God the Son'; whereas, they clearly read 'Son of God.'

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 3:18


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 769A]


John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (Authorized King James - AV)

Interestingly none of us know it all, not even Jesus (Yeshua) as shown by Matthew 24:35-36, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only." (Revised Standard Version - RSV). . But for
salvation, knowledge of God is REQUIRED. "And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. od" (John 17:3 - RSV). But not just any sort of knowledge, ACCURATE knowledge is required. Remember that there are those that " I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but it is not enlightened. For, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. " (Romans 10:2-3 - RSV).
Jesus told his followers at Matthew 7:21-23, ""Not every one who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.'" (RSV)

It is not enough to say that you believe in God (YHWH) and the Bible; one must do " the will of my Father who is in heaven ". How do you do the will of the Father? By gaining accurate knowledge of who he is and what he approves of (they are connected) and then applying that knowledge in our daily lives. We must all strive to find accurate knowledge of who God (YHWH)is if you believe false doctrine about his person? We cannot be content with the ignorance we possess. The scriptures say that if " yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;" (Proverbs 2:3-6 - RSV). As shown here we must do the "the will of my Father who is in heaven" here emphasizing their distinction as two separate entities showing the commonly believed false doctrine of the Trinity to be clearly not from God (YHWH) and not to be the Truth. However, though not one in person or entity they are clearly one in purpose as shown by John 10:30, "The Father and I are one." (New Twentieth Century Version), and at John 17:20-22, where Jesus (Yeshua) clearly made the point of how they, he and his Father (YHWH) and his followers are one, "Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that thou didst send me. And the glory which thou hast given me I have given unto them; that they may be one, even as we [are] one;" (American Standard Version - ASV) Thus we can see their oneness is unity in purpose not being.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 10:36


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 770A]

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelation 4:11, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) was the creator of all there is including his first born, Jesus (Yeshua), and as shown at Matthew 5:16, [AV] “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” All honor and worship should be given to Him per 1 Timothy 1:17, [AV] “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.” This, per Revelation 5:13, [AV] “And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” Will be made known to all. He has no beginning, but created all else that exist as testified to at Revelation 10:6, [AV] “And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:” Yes, His kingdom when established on earth will rule forever per Matthew 6:10, [AV] “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

[2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 10:36

John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? (Authorized King James - AV)

This scripture shows several things, first, it shows the need of all true Christians to believe, and this was emphasized by Jesus (Yeshua) himself at Mark 9:23, "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." (AV) Also, this was highlighted by Jesus (Yeshua) himself at Mark 16:16, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned" (AV) However, there are many doubters who try and escape responsibility by saying they have their own religion or only believe what they want to, but the Bible shows at John 3:36, "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." (AV) Therefore, to be one whom Jesus's (Yeshua's) Father (YHWH) "hath sanctified" one must clearly believe that he, Jesus (Yeshua) is the one who his Father (YHWH) sent as shown at John 5:24, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (AV) This Biblical fact is further made more pointed at John 6:40 "And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." (AV)

Second, we must not only believe that Jesus (Yeshua) was sent by his Father (YHWH), but we must thirst for knowledge of Godly things as shown at John 6:35, "And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." (AV)

Third, we must believe on the works he did at his Father's (YHWH's) direction as stated at John 14:12, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (AV), and made clearer at, John 14:12, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father" (AV).

Fourth, we must not only believe, but realize that the power of God (YHWH) gives salvation as testified to at Romans 1:16, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (AV), and made clearer by Romans 3:26, "To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus" (AV) and also at, Romans 9:33, "As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed" (AV).

Lastly, the Bible clearly says, Jesus (Yeshua) is the Son of God and NOT God the Son vividly showing that Jesus (Yeshua) is a separate being/entity distinct from his Father (YHWH) and this fact has been made very clear by all the above scriptures showing he was sent by his Father (YHWH). Since his father gave him directions, his Father (YHWH) was clearly the superior one as would be required by the First Commandment, Exodus 20:3, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." (AV) which makes it clear that no other god or divine individual could be before Almighty God, the Father (YHWH); clearly doctrines that try to paint Jesus (Yeshua) as just another manifestation of God (YHWH) are false doctrine and to be avoided by all true Christians.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 9:35

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 771A]

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. Revelation 19:11, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

This scripture shows how individuals conditions will be at the conclusion of the end times, and how Jesus (Yeshua) will go forth at this time per Revelation 6:2, [AV] “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.” The righteous and the holy at this time will come under his rule as the ruler of God’s kingdom per Hebrews 3:6, [AV] “But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.” Yes, Jesus (Yeshua) is truly God’s only begotten son and the beginning of Almighty God (YHWH) creative works per Revelation 3:14, [AV] “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” And as revealed at Hebrews 1:8 - 9, [AV] “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”

[2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 9:35

John 9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? (Authorized King James - AV)

A most interesting and important scripture when considered in content as it shows two important Truths. The first, many would fail to recognize Jesus as the Son of God due to thinking two well of themselves and of the group/nationality/religious order they belong to and due to this false pride would lose out on the message of God (YHWH) being proclaimed by his son, Jesus (Yeshua). This is clearly shown by John 9:27-34, "He answered them, I told you even now, and ye did not hear; wherefore would ye hear it again? would ye also become his disciples? And they reviled him [the one Jesus (Yeshua) had healed], and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are disciples of Moses. We know that God hath spoken unto Moses: but as for this man, we know not whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why, herein is the marvel, that ye know not whence he is, and [yet] he opened mine eyes. We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth. Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out." (American Standard Version - ASV). From these scriptures, it is clear these were arrogant and prideful individuals who belonged to a religious order that thought themselves better than others as shown by their statement, "Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out." Clearly showing their attitude of arrogance; whereas, the healed man spoke words of understanding ", Why, herein is the marvel, that ye know not whence he is, and [yet] he opened mine eyes. We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth. Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a man born blind. " They even reviled the healed man and accused his of "would ye also become his disciples? And they reviled him [the one Jesus (Yeshua) had healed], and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are disciples of Moses. " This was a great mistake on their part as they clearly rejected the one whom God (YHWH) had appointed as the ONE mediator between God (YHWH) and mankind, 1 Timothy 2:5, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" (AV)

The second truth is that Jesus (Yeshua) is the only begotten son of Almighty God (YWHW), John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (AV) This fact was clearly highlighted by Jesus (Yeshua) himself when he found the man he had healed with the power, holy spirit, his Father (YHWH) had given him after the arrogant religious leaders had cast him out as follows, "Dost thou believe on the Son of God? , John 9:36-40 , He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him? Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee. And Jesus said, For judgment came I into this world, that they that see not may see; and that they that see may become blind. Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said unto him, Are we also blind?" (AV) Clearly Jesus (Yeshua) was showing that the way was opened for his true followers, but the worldly wise would find it difficult to find owing to their arrogance and pride. This is clearly shown at John 3:18, "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (AV) As can readily be seen, Jesus (Yeshua) clearly was the Son of God, and not a manifestation of God (YHWH) as the scriptures do NOT say 'God the Son' as some wrong thinking people believe who belong to pride fulled religious groups who followed a political compromise reached in 325 AD to further the political ends of a pagan. This Truth is made quite clear at Hebrews 1:5, "For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?" (AV) in which Jesus's (Yeshua's) Father (YHWH) clearly is shown as plainly identifying Jesus (Yeshua) as his son and not some manifestation of himself.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] SPECIAL REPORT ON BIG LIES AND UNTRUTHS BEING TOLD BY SOME MUSLIM APOLOGIST IN THE UNITED KINGDOM (uk).

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL.772A]

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) intended for one man and one women to create a family unit as highlighted by Matthew 19:4 - 9, [AV] “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery”

[2] NOW THE - SPECIAL REPORT ON BIG LIES AND UNTRUTHS BEING TOLD BY SOME MUSLIM APOLOGIST IN THE UNITED KINGDOM (uk).

FIRST BIG LIE AND UNTRUTH – all children are born Muslims, it is their parents who make them Jew, Christian or others. This is one of the many reasons why now western peoples are reverting to Islam on their own free will. Through out the history, Muslims never forced non-Muslims to accept Islam. This is the main reason why Muslims lost Spain and India. [SOURCE - RETRIVED FROM ftikhar Amad commented on a link. In Facebook ON 1/6/2018]

REALITY – ISLAM DID NOT EVEN EXIST UNTIL THE SIXTH CENTURY AND HUMANS EXISTED LONG BEFORE THAT. ALSO, IT IS A FALSE RELIGION WITHOUT REAL FOUNDATIONS. FOR DETAILS AND PROOFS, GO TO ITEM # 1 AT

SECOND BIG LIE AND UNTRUTH – Sexual grooming is a western value. Child abusers come in all colours, all spheres of life from the very top of the social ladder to the very bottom of the social ladder. To try and make this about race is very narrow sighted on your part.

Crimes against children are the worst imaginable. Anyone connected in any way to paedo's, no matter what position they currently hold, should be locked up and the key thrown away if we can't put them to sleep permanently. Attitudes towards .

REALITY - IT IS MAINLY A PRACTICE OF MANY MUSLIMS AS CLEARLY REVELED BY THE FOLLOWING NEWS ARTICLE:

Quilliam: South Asian men alarmingly over represented in grooming gangs
By  5Pillars, 2nd January 2018
The Quilliam Foundation has released a report which found “an alarming level of over-representation of South Asian men” in grooming gangs.
The December report, entitled “Group Based Child Exploitation – Dissecting Grooming Gangs,” examines grooming gang cases identified in the UK since 2005 and says there is a disproportionate representation of males with South Asian heritage who have been convicted in such cases with white females predominantly the victims.
The report found that 84% of “grooming gang” offenders were South Asian, while they only make up 7% of the total UK population, and that the majority of these offenders are of Pakistani origin with Muslim heritage.
The report goes on to discuss and analyse the cultural and religious contexts in order to explain why this demographic features so prominently in this specific crime.
Author Muna Adil said: “There are elements from within the British Pakistani community that still subscribe to outdated and sexist views of women embedded within their jaded interpretations of Islam. These backward views are passed down from generation to generation until the lines between faith and culture dissolve, making it increasingly difficult to criticise one without being seen as a critic of the other.”
Quilliam, a self-described “think tank” established by Maajid Nawaz, claims to be the “world’s first counter-extremism organisation.”
The far-right have constantly raised the issue of grooming gangs as a stick to beat Muslims with, and the Quilliam report has been used by right-wing groups as proof that Muslims abuse children.
However, according to the most recent figures, released in 2012 by the National Crime Agency’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP), 100% of child sex offenders in paedophile rings were white.
Nazir Afzal, who is credited with tackling the issue during his time as Chief Crown Prosecutor in the North West, warned the issue of “Asian” grooming gangs is being used as a recruitment tool by the far-right.
Mr Afzal also warned gang grooming was not the most common form of child sexual abuse.
“British white men they tend to work individually. They tend to work online where they groom and they are the majority of perpetrators. When it comes to Asian men or Pakistani men they tend to do it in groups,” Mr Afzal said.

AND,
IFTIKHAR AND OTHER MUSLIM APOLOGIST HAVE MADE ON MORE THAN ONETIME UN-SUSTAINED RANT THAT ARE MISLEADING AND UNTRUTHFUL. . IFTIKHAR IS ONCE MORE TRYING TO SMEAR BRITS FOR WHAT IS A VICE OF MANY MUSLIMS. HE SAID, (QUOTE)” Sexual grooming is a western value. A couple of migrant Muslims are trying to adopt it in the name of integration.” (QUOTE), YET OVERLOOKS REALITY THAT IN THE UNITED KINGDOM, SWEDEN, NORWAY, ETC. ONLY MUSLIMS FORM MUSLIM RAPE GANGS AND DO MOST OF THE SEXUAL GROOMING; TO WIT, IT IS NOT A WESTERN VALUE – NOTE, HE NEVER BACKS UP HIS FALSE ACCUSATIONS.

THIRD BIG LIE AND UNTRUTH – Through out the history, Muslims never forced non-Muslims to accept Islam. This is the main reason why Muslims lost Spain and India. [SOURCE - RETRIVED FROM ftikhar Amad commented on a link. In Facebook ON 1/6/2018]
REALITY – ISLAM HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN FORCE CONVERSIONS SINCE ITS INCEPTION EVEN THOUGH DENYING SAME IN THE QURAN. LET’S LOOK WHAT AN ENCYCLOPEDIA SAYS ON THE SUBJECT:
Although Islamic law prohibits forced conversion, following the Quranic principle "no compulsion in religion" (2:256),[36][37][38] episodes of forced conversions are recorded in the history of Islam. Historians have qualified such instances as "rare"[39] or "exceptional".[36] In theory, Islamic religious tolerance applied only to monotheistic "People of the Book" if they paid the jizya tax, and pagans faced only two choices between conversion to Islam and fight to the death.[40] In practice, this designation and the dhimma status was extended even to non-monotheistic religions of conquered peoples, such as Hinduism.[40]
In recent times, forced conversions have been threatened or carried out in the context of war, insurgency and intercommunal violence. Cases affecting thousands of people are reported to have occurred during the Partition of India, the Bangladesh Liberation War, in areas controlled by ISIS, and in Pakistan. Disputed allegations of forced conversion of young women have generated public controversy in Egypt and the UK.

FOURTH BIG LIE – Extremism is not created from abroad, it is coming from within. Britain fails to help Muslim communities feel part of British society. Race trouble is being predicted by the Daily Express, because of an ethnic boom in UK major cities. [SOURCE - RETRIVED FROM ftikhar Amad commented on a link. In Facebook ON 1/6/2018]

REALITY, EXTREMISM COMES FROM WITHIN ISLAM AS CLEARLY SHOWN IN THE UNITED KINGDOM BY ISLAM BEING THE ONLY RELIGION IN THE COSMOPOLITAN SOCIETY WHICH HAS MEMBERS WHO ARE RADICALIZED. LET’S LOOK AT REALITY WITHIN THIS COSMOPOLITAN SOCIETY. THE UNITED KINGDOM IS A COSMOPOLITAN SOCIETY AND MANY MUSLIMS HAVE FAILED TO INTEGRATE AND ASSIMILATE.

THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE WITH RESPECT SCHOOLS WHERE THEY WANT SPECIAL PRIVILEGES NOT EXTENDED TO OTHERS. REALITY, MEMBERS OF ALL RELIGIONS SHOULD BE TREATED EQUALLY. WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL, I WAS TREATED AS AN EQUAL IN A COSMOPOLITAN SOCIETY AND WHEN SPECIAL FOODS WERE REQUIRED BY MY RELIGION, I BROUGHT MY OWN TO SCHOOL. MUSLIMS SHOULD NOT LOOK TO THE GOVERNMENT TO EXTEND SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO THEM AT SCHOOL , BUT PROVIDE ON THEIR OWN FOR ANY SPECIAL RELIGIOUS NEEDS THEY MIGHT HAVE JUST AS THE SIKHS, HINDUS, ZOROASTRIANS, JW, JEWS, BUDDHIST DO AND NOT EVEN EXPECT THE GOVERNMENT TO DO IT FOR THEM. MUSLIMS ARE NO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, AND EVEN WORSE IN THAT THEY HAVE OFTEN FAILED TO INTEGRATE AND ASSIMILATE.
LET’S LOOK AT THE NONSENSE PRACTICED AT ONE MUSLIM SCHOOL:


 Muslim Girls’ School Refuses to Stock Toilet Paper for “Cultural Reasons”

A British high school for Muslim girls has come under heavy media scrutiny for its reported habit of not providing easily accessible toilet paper, soap or even drinking water to its students.
To make matters worse, Park Avenue Girls’ High School headteacher Abdul Ghafoor Salloo has been completely blasé about the discoveries, defending the school’s odd and potentially unsanitary habits on the basis of “cultural reasons.”
“The children, they do use the toilets, and traditionally, because we are Asian, we wash, not only wipe,” he said, according to the The U.K. Daily Telegraph. “There are facilities for pupils to clean themselves.”
Excuse my cultural ignorance, but how exactly does one clean himself or herself without toilet paper!? And FYI, I ask this as an East Indian Asian.
“There are facilities for cleaning yourself in the toilet — it might be hard for someone who doesn’t traditionally wash to understand, and washing is better than wiping clean,” he added.
I’m sorry, but what?
Regardless, the U.K.’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, known more commonly as Ofsted, has reportedly tagged the school — in the central English city of Stoke-on-Trent — with its lowest rating because of these so-called cultural practices.
“At the time of the inspection, it was not the school’s common practice to provide soap for pupils’ hand-washing, toilet roll in the toilets or suitable drinking water,” a report compiled by Ofsted after a recent investigation reportedly read.
“Toilet paper is available from the school office when pupils request it. Pupils told inspectors that they sometimes avoided using toilets for the whole school day because of this.”
Frankly, that sounds like child abuse. [SOURC - RETRIEVED FROMhttp://defense-usa.site/.../muslim-girls-school-refuses.../ ON 12/10/2017] 

AND, FROM AN ENCYCLOPEDIA,

Definitions vary of what Islamic fundamentalism is and how, if at all, it differs from Islamism (or political Islam) or Islamic revivalism. The term has been deemed "misleading" by those who suggest all mainstream Muslims believe in the literal divine origin and perfection of the Quran and so are "fundamentalists",[5] and by others as a term used by outsiders to describe perceived trends within Islam.[6] Exemplary figures of Islamic fundamentalism are Sayyid Qutb, Abul Ala Mawdudi,[7] and Israr Ahmed.[8] The Wahhabi movement and its funding by Saudi Arabia is often described as being responsible for the popularity of contemporary Islamic fundamentalism.[9]
• Form of Islamism – Graham Fuller describes Islamic fundamentalism not as distinct from Islamism, but as a subset, "the most conservative element among Islamists." Its "strictest form" includes "Wahhabism, sometimes also referred to as salafiyya. ... For fundamentalists the law is the most essential component of Islam, leading to an overwhelming emphasis upon jurisprudence, usually narrowly conceived."[10] Author Olivier Roy takes a similar line, describing "neo-fundamentalists", (i.e. contemporary fundamentalists) as more passionate than earlier Islamists in their opposition to the perceived "corrupting influence of Western culture," avoiding Western dress, "neckties, laughter, the use of Western forms of salutation, handshakes, applause," discouraging but not forbidding other activities such as sports, ideally limiting the Muslim public space to "the family and the mosque."[11] In this fundamentalists have "drifted" away from the stand of the Islamists of the 1970s and 80s, such as [Abul A'la Maududi] who
…didn't hesitate to attend Hindu ceremonies. Khomeini never proposed the status of dhimmi (protected) for Iranian Christians or Jews, as provided for in the sharia: the Armenians in Iran have remained Iranian citizens, are required to perform military service and to pay the same taxes as Muslims, and have the right to vote (with separate electoral colleges). Similarly, the Afghan Jamaat, in its statutes, has declared it legal in the eyes of Islam to employ non-Muslims as experts.[3]
• Umbrella term – Another American observer, Robert Pelletreau, Jr., Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, believes it the other way around, Islamism being the subset of Muslims "with political goals ... within" the "broader fundamentalist revival".[12] American historian Ira Lapidus sees Islamic fundamentalism as "an umbrella designation for a very wide variety of movements, some intolerant and exclusivist, some pluralistic; some favourable to science, some anti-scientific; some primarily devotional and some primarily political; some democratic, some authoritarian; some pacific, some violent."[13]
• Synonym – Still another, Martin Kramer, sees little difference between the two terms: "To all intents and purposes, Islamic fundamentalism and Islamism have become synonyms in contemporary American usage."[14]
• Scriptural literalism – According to another academic, Natana J. Delong-Bas, the contemporary use of the term Islamic fundamentalism applies to Muslims who not seek not just "to return to the primary sources", but who use "a literal interpretation of those sources."[2]
• Use of ijtihad in Islamic law – According to academic John Esposito, one of the most defining features of Islamic fundamentalism is belief in the "reopening" of the gates of ijtihad ("independent reasoning" used in reaching a legal decision in Sunni law).[15]
• Disorder – Dr. Kathleen Taylor, speaking at the Hay Literary Festival, said Islamic fundamentalism may one day be seen in the same way as mental illness and be “curable.”[16]
Differences with Islamism
Distinctions between Fundamentalism and Islamism (or at least pre-1990 Islamism) according to Roy are in the fields of:
• Politics and economics. Islamists often talk of "revolution" and believe "that the society will be Islamized only through social and political action: it is necessary to leave the mosque ..." Fundamentalists are primarily interested in revolution, less interested in "modernity or by Western models in politics or economics," and less willing to associate with non-Muslims.[17]
• Sharia. While both Islamists and fundamentalists are committed to implementing Sharia law, Islamists "tend to consider it more a project than a corpus."[18]
• Issue of women. "Islamists generally tend to favour the education of women and their participation in social and political life: the Islamist woman militates, studies, and has the right to work, but in a chador. Islamist groups include women's associations." While the fundamentalist preaches for women to return to the home, Islamism believes it is sufficient that "the sexes be separated in public." [19]
Types
Islamic fundamentalism (at least among Sunni Muslims) traditionally tends to fall into "traditionalist" and "reformist" tendencies:
• Traditionalists accept "the continuity" between the founding Islamic "texts"—the Quran and the Sunnah—and their commentaries. Traditionalists take "imitation" (taqlid), accepting what was said before and refusing to innovate (bidah), as a "basic principle, They follow one of the great schools of religious jurisprudence (Shafi'i, Maliki, Hanafi, Hanbali). Their vision of the sharia is essentially legalistic and used to determine what is religiously right or wrong for Enjoining good and forbidding wrong. Traditionalists are sometimes connected to the popular forms of Sufism such as the Barelvi school in Pakistan)."[20]
• "reformist" fundamentalism, in contrast, "criticizes the tradition, the commentaries, popular religious practices" (Maraboutism, the cult of saints), "deviations, and superstitions"; it aims to purify Islam by returning to the Quran and the Sunnah. 18th-century examples are Shah Waliullah Dehlawi in India and Abdul Wahhab in the Arabian Peninsula. This reformism is often "developed in response to an external threat" such as "the influence of Hinduism on Islam". In the late 19th century salafiyya was developed in the Arab countries, "marking a phase between Fundamentalism and Islamism."[20] [SOURCE - RETRIVED FROM https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_fundamentalism ON 1 /12/2018]

AS CAN BE SEEN MUSLIM APOLOGIST ARE INCLINED TO TELL BIG LIES AND UNTRUTHS, AND I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO SHOW ANY ERROR IN MY POST OR GO TO’S.
PS: GENUINE TRUE FOLLOWERS OF THE PRINCE OF PEACE, JESUS (YESHUA) HAVE NEVER PRACTICED FORCED CONVERSIONS; WHEREAS, SOME COUNTERFEIT FOLLOWERS HAVE./size]

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DOCUMENTARY ON JOHN 11:4



[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 773A]

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. Genesis 1:21 – 22, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

This act of creation is emphasized at Genesis 2:7, [AV] “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” But, man drifted away from Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) purpose for mankind as recorded at Isaiah 64:6 – 12, [AV] “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. 8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. 9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people. 10 Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation. 11 Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste. 12 Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?”

[2] DOCUMENTARY ON JOHN 11:4

John 11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. (Authorized King James, AV).

Here, Jesus (Yeshua) clearly said that this was not a sickness that "is not unto death, but for the glory of God" whose son and agent he was. Now when we examine the two proceeding scriptures, John 11:2-3, "And it was that Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick The sisters therefore sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick." (American Standard Version; ASV) we can see the situation clearly. Jesus's (Yeshua's) good friend, Lazarus, was very sick and his sisters were seeking the assistance of Jesus (Yeshua) to make him well. Jesus (Yeshua) did not immediately go as recorded at John 11:11-15, "These things spake he: and after this he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus is fallen asleep; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. The disciples therefore said unto him, Lord, if he is fallen asleep, he will recover. Now Jesus had spoken of his death: but they thought that he spake of taking rest in sleep. Then Jesus therefore said unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him." (ASV). When Jesus (Yeshua) went there, he brought Lazarus back to life as recorded at John 11:19-20 "and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother. Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary still sat in the house." (ASV).

And Martha said, John 11:22, "And even now I know that, whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give thee." (AV). Here Martha was recognizing that Jesus (Yeshua) was God's (YHWH's) appointed agent in accordance with the 'Biblical law of agency' described as, "Scripture mentions something being done by Person A, whilst anothermentions it being done by Person B. This is best understood when we grasp the Schaliach Principle, or the Jewish Law of Agency, which is expressed in the dictum, "A person's agent is regarded as the person
himself." Therefore any act committed by a duly appointed agent is regarded as having been committed by the principle." (The Encyclopedia of the Jewish Religion, R.J.Z. Werblowski and Geoffrey Wigoder). It is important to understand this law of agencies since this will enhance our understanding of many key texts, such as why the Judges and angels were called "God" (Ex. 21:6; 22:8; Ps. 8:5; 82:1). Many more instances could be provided, but brevity is in order here. John 8:54 drives this law of agency home, "Jesus answered, If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my Father that glorifieth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God;" (ASV) by showing that Jesus (Yeshua) was his Father's (YHWH's) agent, and he sought not his own glory, but glory from his Father (YHWH). Therefore, Jesus (Yeshua) could say as he did at John 11:40, "Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God?" (ASV). Even Satan the Devil recognized his, Jesus (Yeshua), as God's (YHWH's) agent, 2 Corinthians 4:4, "in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn [upon them]." (ASV) in trying to blind the minds of the unbelieving to prevent them from recognizing this truth.

To Martha, John 11:23, "Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again." (ASV). And at John 11:24, "Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day." (ASV). The reply at John 11:25-26, "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this?" (ASV). Martha replied, John 11:27, "She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, [even] he that cometh into the world." (ASV). Now, we shall see how as God's (YHWH's) agent he performs a miracle as the agent of his Father (YHWH), John 11:32-40, "Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, and saw him, fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews [also] weeping who came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, and said, Where have ye laid him? They say unto him, Lord, come and see. Jesus wept. The Jews therefore said, Behold how he loved him! But some of them said, Could not this man, who opened the eyes of him that was blind, have caused that this man also should not die? Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay against it. Jesus saith, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time the body decayeth; for he hath been [dead] four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God?" (ASV). Now Jesus (Yeshua) as an agent of his Father (YHWH) and clearly not as God (YHWH) performs a faith strengthening miracle, John 11:41-45, "So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou heardest me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the multitude that standeth around I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me. And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. He that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. Many therefore of the Jews, who came to Mary and beheld that which he did, believed on him." (ASV). Thus we can clearly see that Jesus (Yeshua) was God's (YHWH's) agent, a separate entity or individual, and not a manifestation of God (YHWH) as some claim in error. This truth being made indisputable clear in John 11:41-42 where he clearly spoke to his Father (YHWH) in prayer and not to himself.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 19:7


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 774A]

But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Luke 11:28, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

This reality is made sure at Matthew 7:21 - 29, [AV] “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 3 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 19:7

John 19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God. (Authorized King James, AV).

This is a very dynamic scripture clearly showing Jesus (Yeshua) as clearly a distinct individual from his Father (YHWH). Now let's look at the immediate prior event, John 19:5-6, "Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment. And [Pilate] saith unto them, Behold, the man! When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify [him], crucify [him]! Pilate saith unto them, Take him yourselves, and crucify him: for I find no crime in him." (American Standard Version; ASV). And then look at the events immediately after, John 19:810, "When Pilate therefore heard this saying, he was the more afraid; and he entered into the Praetorium again, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. Pilate therefore saith unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? Knowest thou not that I have power to release thee, and have power to crucify thee?" To which Jesus (Yeshua) answered, John 19:11, "Jesus answered him, Thou wouldest have no power against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath greater sin." Here, Jesus (Yeshua) clearly showed that Pilot and the Jews would have had no power over him except that his Father (YHWH) would permit it. Once more clearly showing he was a separate and distinct entity/individual from his Father (YHWH).

The Dualist and the Trinitarians try to avoid this self-evident truth that Jesus (Yeshua) and Almighty God (YHWH) are two separate entities or individuals. At John 18:37, Jesus (Yeshua) pointed out that only God (YHWH), his Father (YHWH), had original goodness; a goodness which was not derived from anyone else. If the man had thought to assign to Christ the ascription "good", to the level God's (YHWH) goodness and Jesus understood his words in that way and accepted them, the response of Jesus was not the way in which such was done in those days. He would have responded as he did at John l8:37: "Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice" (AV), and at Luke 22:70, "Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am." (AV). Notice, Jesus (Yeshua) always claimed to be the Son of God and NOT God the Son thus clearly delineating him as a separate individual and not some manifestation of his Father (YHWH).

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 11:25


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 775A]

For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. 20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Ecclesiastes 3:19 – 20, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Here the prophet is showing the vanity of life when one seeks great power, position and/or wealth, and this is emphasized also at Psalms 39:4 – 6, [AV] “LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. 5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. 6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.”

[2] DISCOURSE ON JOHN 11:25

John 11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. (Authorized King James, AV).

Here we see Martha specifically calling Jesus (Yeshua) the Son of God and not God the Son clearly differentiating him as a separate entity/being distinct from his Father (YHWH), and NOT a manifestation of his Father (YHWH). To understand why she would say this, let's look at the scriptures immediately before, John 11:25-26, "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this?" (American Standard Version: AV). Here we have Jesus (Yeshua) addressing Martha and clearly she understood that he was acting as an agent of his Father (YHWH) per the Biblical principle or law of agencies. The principle of this law of agencies was that a man's agent is like the man himself, not physically, but legally. He has the power of attorney for the one
who sent him which of course Jesus (Yeshua) had from his Father (YHWH).

That he was acting as the agent of his Father (YHWH) was made quite evident with what Jesus (Yeshua) next said and what next transpired, John 11:40-45, "Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God? So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou heardest me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the multitude that standeth around I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me. And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. He that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. Many therefore of the Jews, who came to Mary and beheld that which he did, believed on him." (ASV). Here it is highlighted that Jesus (Yeshua) was acting, not on his own, but as his Father's (YHWH's) agent. He was receiving power from his Father (YHWH) to accomplish a mighty miracle so as to establish that he was indeed God's (YHWH's) only begotten son and that he had been infused with power or Holy Spirit from his Father (YHWH). He stressed this in his prayer when he said, "Father, I thank thee that thou heardest me. And I knew that thou hearest me always." Here, it is obvious that he was speaking to his Father (YHWH) in prayer, and Jesus's (Yeshua's) Father (YHWH) clearly heard his son and answered his prayer by permitting him to resurrect Lazarus.

However the so called orthodox religious leaders of his day did not like this as shown at John 11:46-50, "But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things which Jesus had done. The chief priests therefore and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many signs. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation. But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, nor do ye take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not." (ASV). Likewise, today, the message of Truth does not please the orthodox leaders of religion as they love their power, and do not want to hear anything that threatens their power hold over the masses. This is shown at Matthew 23:2-12, " Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted" (AV). Clearly, the religious leaders of orthodox groups do all of these today as clearly shown by their garments and their seeking after prominent places instead of being humble servants of Jesus (Yeshua) and carrying out his commission to his followers of Matthew 24:14, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end come." (ASV).

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DOCUMENTARY ON JOHN 20:31


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 776A]

But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Luke 11:28, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

This reality is made sure at Matthew 7:21 - 29, [AV] “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 3 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] DOCUMENTARY ON JOHN 20:31

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. (Authorized King James; AV).

Here the preceding scriptures show we should never doubt the Lord Jesus (Yeshua) as the Apostle Thomas once did giving birth to the saying, "doubting Thomas" for which the reason can clearly be seen in John 20:26-30, "And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace [be] unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and see my hands; and reach [hither] thy hand, and put it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed. Many other signs therefore did Jesus in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book:" (American Standard Version; ASV). This shows that we should believe in Jesus (Yeshua) and his Father, Almighty God (YHWH) with out reservation and in a way in harmony with the Bible.

There are many who say they believe in God (YHWH), but some who do not do so correctly nor in sincerity. Some of these have been mislead by the world and wish to accept a belief contrary to scripture that came about as a political expediency to meet the needs of a pagan Emperor, Constantine, who sought to merge the so called Christian church of the third century with the pagans who believed in a trinity of three gods in one in order to unite his empire religiously. But this is not according to the Bible which shows at Mark 10:15-20, "Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall in no wise enter therein. And he took them in his arms, and blessed them, laying his hands upon them. And as he was going forth into the way, there ran one to him, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good save one, [even] God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not kill, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor thy father and mother. And he said unto him, Teacher, all these things have I observed from my youth." (ASV). Here Jesus (Yeshua) was asked the question by one calling him Good Teacher with respect what he must do to "inherit eternal life?" and Jesus (Yeshua) answered saying, "Why callest thou me good? None is good save one, [even] God" clearly showing two things, he, Jesus, was NOT God (YHWH), and that only God (YHWH) was the ultimate embodiment of goodness. Therefore it is clear that God (YHWH) and Jesus (Yeshua) are two separate individuals or entities and that Jesus (Yeshua) is NOT simply a manifestation of God (YHWH).

Jesus here was pointing out that only God (YHWH), his Father, had original goodness; a goodness which was not derived from anyone else. If the man had thought to assign to Christ the ascription "good", to the level of God's (YHWH's) goodness and Jesus (Yeshua), the Son of God, clearly understood his words in that way and accepted them. The response of Jesus was different from the way in which such was done in those days. He would have responded as he did at John l8:37 to Pilot, "Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end have I been born, and to this end am I come into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice." (ASV), and at Luke 22:70, " And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. And they said, What further need have we of witness? for we ourselves have heard from his own mouth." (ASV). Here he once more clearly identified himself as the Son of God to these unbelievers even though it would cost him his human life. For a surety we should then recognize him NOT as his Father (YHWH), but as the Son of his Father (YHWH), and believe without doubt. We should not be doubting Thomases as are the Dualist and Trinitarians.

COMBINATION OF THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES. With the Scripture of the Day first.

[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. [777A]
For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. Psalms 37:10 – 11, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

And this is re-stated in the New Testament at Matthew 5:5, [AV] “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” And Revelation 21:3 - 5, [AV] shows that all things will be made new and that the earth will be a paradise, “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

[2] Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Long pepper (Piper longum), sometimes called Indian long pepper (pipli), is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. Long pepper has a taste similar to, but hotter than, that of its close relative Piper nigrum - from which black, green and white pepper are obtained.

The fruit of the pepper consists of many minuscule fruits — each about the size of a poppy seed — embedded in the surface of a flower spike that closely resembles a hazel tree catkin. Like Piper nigrum, the fruits contain the alkaloid piperine, which contributes to their pungency. Another species of long pepper, Piper retrofractum, is native to Java, Indonesia. The fruits of this plant are often confused with chili peppers, which belong to the genus Capsicum, originally from the Americas.
History – The first reference to long pepper comes from ancient Indian textbooks of Ayurveda, where its medicinal and dietary uses are described in detail. It reached Greece in the sixth or fifth century BCE, though Hippocrates discussed it as a medicament rather than a spice.[1] Among the Greeks and Romans and prior to the European rediscovery of the American Continents, long pepper was an important and well-known spice. The ancient history of black pepper is often interlinked with (and confused with) that of long pepper, though Theophrastus distinguished the two in the first work of botany. The Romans knew of both and often referred to either as just piper; Pliny erroneously believed dried black pepper and long pepper came from the same plant. Round, or black pepper, began to compete with long pepper in Europe from the twelfth century and had displaced it by the fourteenth. The quest for cheaper and more dependable sources of black pepper fueled the Age of Discoveries; only after the discovery of the American Continents and of chili pepper, called by the Spanish pimiento, employing their word for long pepper, did the popularity of long pepper fade away.[2] Chili peppers, some of which, when dried, are similar in shape and taste to long pepper, were easier to grow in a variety of locations more convenient to Europe. Today, long pepper is a rarity in general commerce.

Usage – Today, long pepper is a very rare ingredient in European cuisines, but it can still be found in Indian, and Nepalese vegetable pickles, some North African spice mixtures, and in Indonesian and Malaysian cooking. It is readily available at Indian grocery stores, where it is usually labeled pippali. Pippali is the main spice of Nihari, a dish which is one of the national dishes of Pakistan and Indian metropolis of Lucknow.

Long pepper is known to contain the chemical compound piperlongumine (PL), which has shown activity against many cancers including prostate, breast, lung, colon, lymphoma, leukemia, primary brain tumors and gastric cancer.[7]

AND MEDICAL USE:
Ancient spice shown to switch off major cancer gene
90Shares
Jenny Smiechowski


You can never have too many cancer-fighting spices in your spice rack…
That’s why spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic and oregano should always be in your kitchen — and used often.
But you should know there’s a powerful, anti-cancer spice you’ve probably been missing out on all these years… just because it may have seemed a little too exotic for American tongues.

And if you give it a try, you might find you like its spicy sweet flavor — found often in scrumptious Indian and Southeast Asian dishes. But something you might like even better is its uncanny ability to switch off your cancer gene.
Indian long pepper provides cancer protection

The Indian long pepper is an important remedy in Ayurvedic medicine that’s been used to treat a long list of health problems, including insomnia, anxiety, headaches, migraines, toothaches, digestive problems, lung problems and heart problems, practically forever.

And for years now, research has shown that piperlongumine has anti-cancer abilities. In fact, this unassuming pine cone-shaped fruit can help ward off prostate, breast, colon, lymphoma, leukemia, brain and gastric cancer.
All because it contains a cancer-fighting chemical called piperlongumine. But researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center recently figured out why it’s so effective…

They discovered that piperlongumine switches off the GSTP1 gene — a gene that produces a detoxification enzyme that promotes tumor growth.
So, it seems modern medicine has finally verified why this ancient Ayurvedic cancer-fighter is so effective. And researchers couldn’t be happier about their new discovery…

“This study illustrates the importance of examining and re-examining our theories. In this case, we learned something fundamentally new about a 3,000-year-old medical claim using modern science,” said Dr. Kenneth Westover, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Radiation Oncology at UT Southwestern.
Harnessing the long pepper’s anti-cancer power

If you’re interested in adding one more cancer-fighter to your spice rack (and why wouldn’t you be?), you should definitely give the Indian long pepper a try. It’s sweet and spicy flavor works well in soups, stews, veggie dishes and as a dry rub for meat.

You can even use it as a substitute for black pepper if you want to spice up boring old dishes. But be warned… long pepper has a bit more of a bite than black pepper, so you may want to use less.

Unfortunately, the Indian long pepper is not easy to get your hands on. You should, however, be able to find it in dedicated spice shops, Indian markets or online.
You should also know, that if you buy the long pepper fruit in its full form, you’ll have to grind it up to use it as a spice. You can do that with a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder (FYI… the mortar and pestle is the quicker and easier option).

But if you’re not an adventurous eater and the exotic long pepper doesn’t sound appealing to you, don’t fret — there are long pepper supplements on the market too.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON ACTS 8:37



[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 778A]

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

And what is required is shown as Psalms 33:8 – 11, [AV] “Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. 10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. 11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] DISCOURSE ON ACTS 8:37

Acts 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. (Authorized King James; AV).

A very dynamic conversion was taking place here as this eunuch of high authority learned the Truth about Jesus (Yeshua) and his Father (YHWH) from the Disciple of Jesus (Yeshua) Philip. Now let's look at what next took place. Acts 8:38-39, "And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing." Now what was the significance of the eunuch being baptised?

It is necessary for all followers of Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) to be baptized as clearly shown by the scriptures. This was shown by the example of Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) getting baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan river, "13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:13-17; AV). We are told, " For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:" (1 Peter 2:21; AV).

It is also necessary for it to be valid, for the individual first repent of his/her past wrong doings, " Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Acts 2:38 AV). You must put away, "22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." (Ephesians 4:22-24; AV).

A necessary way of baptizing called for in the scriptures, " Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19; AV). Most individuals are familiar with this scripture, but few understand the reason for baptizing this way.

First, "in the name of the Father," this is necessary as it is recognizing the office or authority of Almighty God (YHWH) who created everything and who has always existed per Psalms 90:2. This is made clear, " That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH [(YHWH)], art the most high over all the earth." (Psalms 83:18; AV), which clearly shows that he is "the most high over all the earth." And he is the source of live as stated, " For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light." (Psalms 36:9; AV).

Second, "of the Son," this is necessary as it is recognizing the office or authority of the Son, Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) who is the only begotten son and the first of creation by his Father (YHWH). His Father (YHWH) exalted him to a position only second only to himself, "9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11; AV). And, he was given, " And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." (Revelation 19:16; AV)

Third, "of the Holy Ghost," this is necessary to recognize the function or activity of the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost). This is God's (YHWH's) active force that goes forth or emanates from Almighty God (YHWH). One of its functions is to act as a Comforter to mankind, " But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." (John 14:26; AV), "16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." (John 14:16-17; AV).

Clearly, Jesus (Yeshua) is the Son of God (YHWH) and not a manifestation of God (YHWH); otherwise Acts 8:37 would read, God the Son, and it does not.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] DISCOURSE ON A CONTINUUM


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 779A]

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. Revelation 6:2, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

As testified to at Proverbs 21:31, [AV] “The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.” And at the conclusion of the end times a great war will take place between Jesus (Yeshua) and the Devil as predicted at Psalms 45:4 - 5, [AV] “And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. 5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.”
And the Apostle John gives clear detail on what will take place at Revelation 14:14, [AV] “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.” Yes, there will be war in Heaven between Jesus (Yeshua) and his forces and those of the Devil as prophesied at Revelation 12:7, [AV] “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” Yes, the forces of the Devil will make war with Jesus (Yeshua) per Revelation 17:14, [AV] “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”

[2] DISCOURSE ON A CONTINUUM

It is quite strange but a reoccurring phenomena that those at the extreme ends of any continuum have the most absurd views be it religion, politics, education, or what ever. Take the so called Bible believing continuum of religion; you have the strange beliefs of the Trinity and Sabellianism, one being the false belief of :

" They believe that there is one but God made up of three separate and distinct persons of but one indivisible essence. That these three persons existed from eternity, and are co-equal in power and substance. These individuals are known as Father (YHWH), Son, Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) and the Holy Spirit. The undivided essence of God belongs equally to each of the three persons. The Church (Catholic, Orthodox, and most Protestants) confesses the Trinity to be a mystery beyond the comprehension of man[source - "Discourse on John 1:1," by my husband]"

And the other being:

" God is three only in relation to the world, in so many "manifestations" or "modes." The unity and identity of God are such that the Son of God, Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) did not exist before the incarnation; because the Father (YHWH) and the Son, Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) are thus one, the Father (YHWH) suffered with the Son, Jesus (Yeshua or YHWH saves) in his passion and death[source - "Discourse on John 1:1," by my husband]."
Which is some religions such as the Catholic seem to blend together, and at the other end of the continuum you have the Doomsday Prophet group that rest their case on Deuteronomy and the claim that their leader, Starjade, is the foretold prophet, and not Jesus (Yeshua). Proves the point that the extremes of any continuum miss the mark of truth which lies about the middle point on the continuum.

For example, the Trinitarians maintain that God (YHWH) is of three parts, persons, and/or manifestations as previously mentioned, i.e., God (YHWH), Jesus (Yeshua), and God's (YHWH's) active force, the Spirit. How absurd for a number of simple reasons:

1 - Jesus (Yeshua) claimed to be the Son of God, but never claimed to be God (YHWH). This is affirmed in over 40 places in the Bible. Whereas, for the Trinity to be so he would NOT be the Son of God (YHWH), but would be called God the Son which he is not called anywhere in the Bible. Whereas, many Trinitarians contend about trivial such as whether there should or should not be an article in the last part of John 1:1, rather than concerning themselves with what makes translational sense in context which lack of article in English does not.

2 - A trinity is composed of three like things and not two divine beings and the power or force of the greater one per John 14:28, "Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I." (American Standard Version; ASV). Interestingly John 1:1, even if you accepted a biased and out of context rendering like this:
" In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Authorized King James Bible; AV)"
That of course is out of context rendering instead of the correct rendering in context such as:

" IN THE beginning the Word exist- ed. The Word was with God, and the Word was divine.[source - "The Complete Bible: An American Translation." Contributors: Edgar J. Goodspeed - transltr, J. M. Powis Smith - transltr. Publisher: University of Chicago Press. Place of Publication: Chicago. Publication Year: 1939."

Or:

" The Logos existed in the very beginning, the Logos was with God, the Logos was divine. [source - A New Translation of The Bible by James Moffatt, D.D., D.Litt.:]"

Or:

" In a beginning was the word, and the word was with the God, and a god was the Word [source - The Word for Word English Translation from Koine Greek to English from The Vatican Manuscript #1209 which makes the Emphatic Diaglott by Dr. J. J. Griesbach, probably the greatest German Bible scholar and Koine Greek translator]"

Even if you were to accept a biased and out of context rendering only two and not three divine beings appear; hence maybe a Duality, but definitely not a trinity. For proof, count your fingers up to two and hold them up in a "V", no trinity, only two.

3 - The believers in the trinity put if forth as the paramount belief and the so called World Council of Churches or whatever they now call themselves these days, makes belief in this myth a prerequisite for membership, believe it or not. Yet nowhere in the Bible does the word Trinity ever appear, thus obviously it is a myth.

4 - No equality which would be required by a trinity is shown in the Bible, but just the opposite is testified to at 1 Corinthians 11:3,
" "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." (ASV)".
This scripture clearly shows God (YHWH) is clearly "the head of Christ is God" the head of Christ.

Also Luke 3:21-23,

"During a general baptism of the people, when Jesus too had been baptized and was praying, heaven opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove; and there came a voice from heaven, 'Thou art my Son, my Beloved; on thee my favour rest' (the New English Bible; NEB)"
Thereby clearly showing God's (YHWH's) active force coming down on Jesus (Yeshua) and God (YHWH) himself saying, "Thou art my Son, by Beloved; oon thee my favour rest." Clearly, showing a Father (YHWH) bestowing favor on a Son, now if Jesus (Yeshua) were COEQUAL OR COETERNAL with his Father (YHWH) this would of course be impossible. Now being coequal and coeternal would be required for either a Duality or, if a third divine individual were involved at John 1:1, a Trinity.

But, last let's consider just what is the Holy Spirit. Now let's consider just what this Spirit is. Now what is this Spirit or Holy Spirit that John the Baptist mentioned at John 1:32, ""And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the holy Ghost." (AV)? The Holy Spirit is only God's (YHWH's) active force and not even a spirit being or person. This is clearly shown at Pentecost where the Holy Spirit was poured out onto all there, Acts 2:1-4, "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." (AV). This entire scripture bespeaks of a force and not a being as you do not get filled with a being! And this fact is reaffirmed at Acts 4:31, ""And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke the word of God with boldness." (AV); And 2 Corinthians 1:21-22, "Now he which established us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts." (AV), surely a being would not be in our hearts as that is ludicrous, thus this scripture talks of God's (YHWH's) active force; This is clearly shown at Luke 11:13, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (AV). Once more, why? Why? Do many say they are coequal and coeternal when clearly they are not and the Holy Ghost is just God's (YHWH's) active force? Only to try to give some resemblance of reality to a myth as we shall later see. An interesting note on the Spirit is that the neuter Greek word for spirit (pneu'ma) is used, the neuter pronoun "it" is properly employed. This fact is conveniently over looked or hidden by most Trinitarian translators as admitted in the "New American Bible Catholic Bible," regarding John 14:17: "The Greek word for 'Spirit' is neuter, and while we use personal pronouns in English ('he,' 'his,' 'him'), most Greek MSS [manuscripts] employ 'it.'" So when the Bible uses masculine personal pronouns in connection with pa·ra'kle·tos at John 16:7, 8, it is conforming to rules of grammar, not expressing a doctrine. And in Ancient Hebrew the word here rendered Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, or Spirit which is translated from 'ru'ach' meaning "breath; wind; spirit." In Latin, it is spiritus, and in Sanskrit, 'prana' which means both "breath" and "spirit"

So it is clear that the Spirit is not a being but is God's (YHWH's) active force which he gives to both his Son, Jesus (Yeshua) and to his followers that he gave to him. This is made even clearer at 1 Corinthians 12:13, "For in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all made to drink of one Spirit. And Hebrews 2:4 clearly reveals it as from him, "God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders, and by manifold powers, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will." (ASV); And affirmed at 2 Peter 1:21, "For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men spake from God, being moved by the Holy Spirit." (ASV). Interestingly many ancient manuscripts with respect part of 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, in part read as follows, "Vulgate, Syriac, and Coptic [all important ancient manuscripts] read, "(the Lord God of the) spirits (of the prophets)." The Lord God who with His Spirit inspired their spirits so as to be able to prophesy. There is but one Spirit, but individual prophets, according to the measure given them " Thus it is obvious that the Spirit or Holy Spirit is God's (YHWH's) active force or power which he 'pours' out to his Son, Jesus (Yeshua) and to the faithful followers as necessary to get his will accomplished.
