Re: Prayer request for Walt

Walt, that sounds absolutely horrible! It's painful even to read about it ... please keep us posted because your updates help us to be more vigilant and specific in our prayers for you! How long is the expected recovery time from this type of injury? YHWH bless you!!

Re: Osama - Dead

Or, has he been dead for years and is this a "strategic" time to announce it? The story reeks of the all-too-familiar mixture of truth and lies: http://www.debka.com/article/20902

Some believe it's a big hoax:

Re: Circumcision Questions

This is an interesting website (judianity) with a more clarified and balanced view (in my humble opinion – which is certainly sometimes defective but always sincere!) on the issue of circumcision, Galations and Paul: http://www.gentiles-and-circumcision.info/index.html Have any of you come across it...

Miltha

Miltha – John 1:1 I’ve come across explanations of the use of this Aramaic word in John 1:1 a few times, and find it enriching to ponder. The word Miltha, translated as “Word” in John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word/Miltha – this word means so much more than just “word” or spoken word. The meani...

Re: Questioning Paul Review - A look at the Galatians text

Wow Stephen, thank you for all the painstaking detail of this study. I appreciate the translation accuracy statistics – this is very helpful. And the assessment of charis/grace is fantastic. Your reminder is such an important one for us all – to “examine, test, scrutinize and determine the genuinene...

Re: In or Against?

Thank you for this response Swalchy and forgive me for taking so long to say so! This is one of those Scriptures I’ve read so many times and thought I knew exactly what it meant, but evidently not. One thing this Scripture cannot mean is that many will come in Yahushua’s proper name – it’s been so d...

Re: Saturn worship

You’ll have to read more than my post to settle that – I only tried to post a summary to be concise and compel deeper digging, but … “The Sacred Record tells us that the Sabbath commandment was given to the Hebrews by God through Moses, but this does not imply that it was the first time the Sabbatic...

Re: Saturn worship

I’ve been reading from a couple of older resources and finding that some scholars believe the Sabbath has evolved over time. They see it as having begun as a lunar based rest day reflecting the pagan traditions of the Ancient Near East and developed over time to become the continuous 7 day cycle. Fo...

Re: Circumcision Questions

Having the sign doesn’t mean anything – if we don’t have the substance. The substance is righteousness, and it is IN us through Yahushua. In our culture, many have the sign of marriage on their finger, but they may not have the substance – life-long sacrificial love, faithfulness, devotion. There ar...

In or Against?

Luke 21:8 “… in my name” I’ve read an argument that the word “in”, Greek “epi”, should have been translated as “against” in this verse as it is done in verse 10 “nation will rise against nation.” Swalchy, your translation doesn’t use the word “against” in verse 8, but is it a possible correct trans...

Re: Saturn worship

I agree with some of your comments Rob. What I find very frustrating is that the truth is “here a little, there a little.” The websites and/or docs I referenced all have some truth. I’m trying to pull out that truth from the other stuff. I referenced them regarding the issue of saturn as it relates ...

Re: Saturn worship

Thanks for your responses! but they appear to me to be basically trying to justify the Christian Sunday being the "Sabbath", and attempting to state that because Saturday is named after the God Saturn, that therefore having the Sabbath on "Saturn's Day" is the same as having it on "the Lord's day". ...

I truly don’t mean to overload with information here, but I just find this fascinating. This is a document from the group that I mentioned in the “Pattern of Everything” thread, where Saturn is associated with the “Mystery of Iniquity” or Satan. http://wiki.thepatternofeverything.org/index.php?title...

Saturn worship

Amos 5:26, Acts 7:43 Sikkuth, Moloch, Chiun, Remphan …. Are these all references to what boils down to Saturn worship, and Saturn’s day worship? Some references: http://www.thecorner-stone.org/c/Ch/chiun.php http://hope-of-israel.org.nz/saturdayinscripture.html Swalchy, can I attach a PDF file here?

Re: Acts 20:7: The First Day of the Week, or a Sabbath?

This is probably a completely different topic, but is the term “week” in Acts 20:7 the same 7-day cycle as we understand, or did the term refer to the 8-day market cycle of the former Roman Republican Calendar? The following quotes are from a yahoo document, Enoch and the Full New Moon Calendar ( ht...
