Spiritual Words … Or are they? (part 1)

September 14, 2008

For years, humanity has utilized words in the congregation that they have absolutely no idea what the origin of these words are and have absolutely no idea whether or not these words offend our Heavenly Father.  I would like to bring to your attention the following verse from the Scriptures:

“Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”  (Proverbs 4:7)

YHWH has indicated to us in Scriptures that with all thy getting, get understanding.  It amazes me how many people do not realize the significance of this verse and the reason why it is believed that this Scripture verse is there.  The fact of the matter is that this verse has a great meaning and purpose to it.  YHWH is telling us that though it costs us everything, get understanding.  Religions all over the world have beliefs that they truly believe are spiritual but it is 100% pagan.  Here is another verse that I would like to bring to your attention:

“But you, my people, do not know what I demand.  You say, “We are wise because we have the teachings and laws of YHWH.’  But I say that your teachers have turned my words into lies!”  (Jeremiah 8:7b-8)

Apparently, there is a great reason why we should be seeking the understanding and knowledge from YHWH himself and from no man.  Because many of the teachings that are being professed by religions are false and are completely unspiritual.  Half of the world celebrates Easter, Christmas, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and New Year’s Eve and truly believe that it has something to do with spirituality and it is absolutely abominable for our Heavenly Father. 

There are also words that we say in the congregation or in our spiritual lives that are completely pagan and unacceptable to the Almighty.  The purpose of this blog is to be able to bring the truth, so that the truth can set you free.  Here is some words that are being commonly used in the congregation and may be unacceptable to the Almighty:

a.  AMEN

The Hebrew of the Old Testaments tells us that the Scriptural Hebrew word (which means: so be it, or verily, or surely) is “Amein” and not “Amen”.  Likewise the Greek equivalent in the Greek New Testament is pronounced: “Amein”.   The Egyptians, including the Alexandrians, had been worshipping, or been acquainted with the head of the Egyptian pantheon, Amen-Ra, the great sun deity, for more than 1,000 years before the Messiah.  Before he was known as Amen-Ra, he was known as “Amen” among the Thebans.  According to Funk and Wagnall’s Standard College Dictionary, AMEN was the god of life and procreation in Egyptian mythology, and later identified with the Sun-god as the supreme deity and called “Amen-Ra”.   Our Savior, Yahshua HaMashiah calls Himself “the Amein” in Revelation 3:14:

“This is whay you must write to the angel of the congregation in Laodicea:  I am the one called Amein!  I am the faithful and true witness and the source of Yahweh’s creation.  Listen to what I say.”  (Revelation 3:14)

With this being said, have we been misled to invoke the name of the Egyptian sun-deity at the end of our prayers?   Let the truth set you free!

===============================

b.  Bible

The term “Scripture” is used once in the Book of Daniel and 54 times in the New Testament.  It refers to the whole book. “The Scriptures”.

The word “Bible” for the Scriptures was first was about 400 years after Yahshua.  The papyrus, on which all documents were written, was imported from Egypt through the Phoenician seaport Gebal, which the Greeks called Byblos or Byblus.  This seaport was the home of the Phoenician Sun-deity. 

This city was founded by Baal Chronos was the seat of Adonis and once contained a large temple of Adonis.  The sun-god was associated with the “Lady of Biblios”.  Both the city of Byblos in Phoenicia and the city Byblisin Egypt were named after the female deity Byblis (also called Byble or Biblis).  she was the granddaughter of Apollo, the greek sun-deity.  Byblia was also a name for Venus, an astral goddess and a goddess of sensuality among the ancient greeks. 

 

As you can see so far … the words Amen, which is used to finish a conversation with Yahweh and Bible, which is used as the description of His holy word are completely pagan terms.  How can we end our prayer with our Creator with the acknowledge and naming of an Egyptian sun-god?  And how can we call the Sacred Scriptures a term that is named after the granddaughter of an Egyptian god? 

 

Know the truth and let the truth set you free.  In my next blog, we will continue the blog series, “Holy Words … Or Are They?  Until next time, be blessed by the Best in spite of the mess!
