Holy Land's 'oldest church' found at Armageddon

Prisoners help unearth remains at jail on site of final biblical showdown

Screen Shot 2018-06-04 at 5.56.58 PM.png

As if Megiddo, the biblical city of Armageddon - scene of three millennia of battles, the last cavalry charge of the first world war and the final showdown between good and evil - did not have enough on its plate. Archaeologists now claim to have unearthed the remains of the oldest Christian church discovered in the Holy Land.

Unfortunately for Israel's beleaguered tourism industry, the find was made behind the walls of one of the country's maximum security prisons.

Inmates were put to work alongside the specialists to excavate a corner of Megiddo jail for the construction of a new cell block ready for the next intake of Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants.

Toiling behind the barbed wire and watchtowers, they uncovered a detailed and well-preserved mosaic, the foundations of a rectangular building, and pottery dated to the third or early fourth century. One of several inscriptions on the mosaic floor in ancient Greek said the building was dedicated to "the memory of the Lord Jesus Christ".

Other inscriptions name a Roman army officer, Gaianus, who donated money to build the floor, and a woman called Ekoptos who "donated this table to the God Jesus Christ in commemoration". The table is believed to have served as an altar.

"There are no crosses on the mosaic floor," said Yotam Tepper, an archaeologist who led the dig on behalf of the Israeli Antiquities Authority. "In their place is a picture of two fish lying side by side - a very early Christian symbol.

"This is an extremely dramatic discovery, because such an old building of this type has never been found either in the land of Israel or anywhere else in the entire region. The structure and the mosaic floor date back to the period before Christianity became an officially recognised religion, before St Constantine.

"Normally we have from this period in our region historical evidence from literature, not archaeological evidence. There is no structure you can compare it to - it is a unique find."

The Roman empire forbade Christian rituals before AD313 and Christians were forced to worship in secret. The earliest churches, until this discovery at Megiddo, include the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, said to stand on the site of Christ's crucifixion, dating from about AD330, and the church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. The inscriptions at Megiddo were interpreted by Professor Leah Di Segni of the Hebrew University.

"I was told these were Byzantine but they seem much earlier than anything I have seen so far from the Byzantine period. It could be from the third or the beginning of the fourth century," she said.The use of the word "table" in one inscription instead of "altar" might advance the study of Christianity, she said, because it is widely believed that rituals based on the Last Supper were held around a table used as an altar.

The church might never have been discovered had it not been for the needs of Israel's ever-demanding security apparatus. Megiddo prison is home to about 1,200 "security prisoners" who are held in "administrative detention" without ever being told exactly what it is they are accused of.

The prison is a series of fenced-in compounds with the bulk of inmates sleeping in long brown army tents enclosed by barbed wire and surrounded by open sewers. The prisoners nicknamed the jail "Jabaliya" after a poor and overcrowded refugee camp in the Gaza strip.

Megiddo has long been described by religious scholars and archaeologists as the most important biblical site in Israel. Over the centuries, more than 25 cities rose and fell at Megiddo. Some were powerful commercial centres on the ancient thoroughfare between Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Five of the conflicts fought in the 30-mile-wide Jezreel valley around Megiddo are recorded in the Old Testament. The New Testament names Armageddon - a Greek corruption of the Hebrew word "har", meaning mount, and Megiddo - as the scene of the final great battle between good and evil.

Some specialists remain sceptical about the latest discovery. "I think this is a little myth to boost tourism," said Michel Piccirillo, a respected biblical archaeologist. "The idea that it is ancient comes from the pottery and the shape of the letters on the inscriptions, but this is not definitive."

Israel's tourism minister, Avraham Hirchson, is not deterred. "If we nurture this properly, then there will be a large stream of tourists who could come to Israel. There is great potential ... " he told national television.

WOW! Israel has long been a fascist state. Israel was once proud of being a terrorist state, and often admitted even in writing that it's early 20th century founders excelled at terrorism.  Now, it has the support of at least one overriding vote in the UN, so that the people whom it terrorizes are the only ones who are officially called terrorists. Most Palestinians are now in a national "concentration camp."

[Just testing the limits for discussing controversial politics here.]

On the topic at hand, this church looks to be 3rd century at the earliest, but even the first century Christians accepted that Jesus was "the only-begotten God" just not "the God."

Funny, isn't it that the majority of manuscripts read ‘the Lord’.


Question: Isn’t it coincidental that all modern versions, based on the corrupt Egyptian readings, have one major fact in common: that they omit many Deity of Christ verses?

The KJV ‘the second man is the Lord from heaven’ is a clear proof of Christ being God, as there is only one Lord from Heaven, and He is ‘Jehovah’.


What manuscript support is there for ‘the Lord’ in I Corinthians 15:47? See UBS Greek NT:

Thirteen early writers known as Church Fathers quote it:


a) Hippolytus 170-236 AD, Vol. 5, p 167
b) Tertullian 200-250 AD against Marcion,
Vol. 3, page 451
Vol.3, page 529
c) Victorinus, Vol 7, page 342
d) Basil 379 AD
e) Chrysostom 407 AD
f) Maximinus 428 AD
g) Cyril 444 AD
h) Euthalius 450 AD
i) Theodoret 466 AD
j) Ps-Athanasius 550 AD
k) Cosmas 550 AD
l) John Damascus 749 AD
m) Origen 254 AD
(2) Six Uncial Greek Manuscripts contain ‘the Lord’:
a) Codex Sinaiticus corrected (Aleph)
b) Codex Alexandrinus (A)
c) Codices D, K, P, ?.
(3) Nineteen Minuscule Greek Manuscripts numbered 81, 104, 181, 326, 330 436, 451,
614, 629, 1241, 1739, 1877, 1881, 1962, 1984, 1985, 2127,2492, 2495.
(4) Byzantine lectionaries contain the words ‘the Lord’.
(5) Ancient versions containing ‘the Lord’ are:
a) Syriac Peshitta d) Gothic
b) Syrian Harclean e) Armenian
c) Syriac Palestinian

Conclusion: 44 ancient witnesses from all over the ancient world testify to Jesus Christ as being ‘the Lord from heaven’. NWT is wrong here because no man originated from heaven.

 

Don't believe the false anti-Christian booklet "Should you believe in the Trinity" by the devious and deceitful watchtower which invented quotes of Church fathers on p7.

 

Here is what they actually said AND THE SOURCE:

 

Ignatius (30-107 AD) taught by John, believed in the Deity of Christ and Trinity: “Our Lord and God, Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, first did and then taught, as Luke testifies (p 56) continue in intimate union with Jesus Christ our God (p. 68)… loving Polycarp even as I do you (p. 58),… For our God, Jesus Christ, now that He is with the Father (p. 74). Those things have been fulfilled in the Gospel, (our Lord saying), Go ye and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Matt 28:19) (Ante-Nicene Fathers VI, p.85).


Tertullian (160-225 AD) was a juriconsult (law authority) familiar with the Roman archives which influenced his acceptance of Divine truth. He would not have boldly appealed to the archive records before the Roman Emperor, his colleagues and the Senate, had he not known that the evidence was irrefutable. He writes as follows:
Tertullian (first half of the third century AD), Apol. XXI:
“The Jews were so exasperated by His teaching, by which their rulers and chiefs were convicted of the truth, chiefly because so many turned aside to Him, that at last they brought Him before Pontius Pilate, at that time Roman governor of Syria; and, by the violence of their outcries against Him, extorted a sentence giving Him up to them to be crucified. He Himself had predicted this, which, however, would have signified little had not the prophets of old done it as well. And yet, nailed upon the cross, He exhibited many notable signs, by which His death was distinguished from all others. At His own free-will, He with a word dismissed from Him His spirit, anticipating the executioners work. In the same hour, too, the light of day was withdrawn, when the sun at the very time was in his meridian blaze. Those who were not aware that this had been predicted about Christ, no doubt thought it an eclipse. You yourselves have the account of the world portent still in your archives. (XXI.19:Et tamen suffixus multa mortis illius propria astendit insignia.. nam spiritum cum verbo sponte dimisit, praevento carnificis officio. Eodem momento dies medium orbem signante sole subducta est. Deliquium utique putaveruni qui id quoque super Christo praedicatum no sierunt. Et tamen eum mundi casum relatum in arcanis vestries habetis.) Then, when His body was taken down from the cross and placed in a sepulcher, the Jews in their eager watchfulness surrounded it with a large military guard, lest, as He had predicted His resurrection from the dead on the third day, His disciples might remove by stealth His body, and deceive even the incredulous. But, lo, on the third day there was a sudden shock of earthquake, and the stone which sealed the sepulcher was rolled away, and the guard fled off in terror: without a single disciple near, the grave was found empty of all but the clothes of the buried One. But nevertheless, the leaders of the Jews, whom it nearly concerned both to spread abroad a lie, and keep back a people tributary and submissive to them from the faith, gave it out that the body of Christ had been stolen by His followers. For the Lord, you see, did not go forth into the public gaze, lest the wicked should be delivered from their error; that faith also, destined to a great reward, might hold its ground in difficulty. But He spent forty days with some of His disciples down in Galilee, a region of Judea, instructing them in the doctrines they were to teach to others. Thereafter, having given them commission to preach the gospel through the world, He was encompassed with a cloud and taken up to heaven, a fact more certain far than the assertions of your Proculi concerning Romulus. All these things Pilate did to Christ; and now in fact a Christian in his own convictions, he sent word of Him to the reigning Caesar, who was at that time Tiberius.’ (Apologies, XXI, 19).

1) Ignatius (30-107 AD) taught by John, believed in the Deity of Christ and Trinity: “Our Lord and God, Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, first did and then taught, as Luke testifies (p 56) continue in intimate union with Jesus Christ our God (p. 68)… loving Polycarp even as I do you (p. 58),… For our God, Jesus Christ, now that He is with the Father (p. 74). Those things have been fulfilled in the Gospel, (our Lord saying), Go ye and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Matt 28:19) (Ante-Nicene Fathers VI, p.85).

2) Pliny the Younger (61-112 AD) was the Governor of Bithynia in 112 Ad and a Roman Senator. He wrote to the Emperor Trajan asking for the guidance on how he should treat the Christians in his province. He stated that Christians were ‘meeting on a certain fixed day before it was light, when they sang in alternate verse a hymn to Christ as to a god, and bound themselves to a solemn oath, not to do wicked deeds, never commit fraud, theft, adultery, not to lie, nor to deny a trust…’ (Epistles X.96). This reveals that early Christians: i) Worshipped Jesus Christ as God.

ii) Met on a fixed day of the week.
iii) Were committed to holy, truthful, honest behavior.
Pliny described the Christians as people who loved the truth at any cost, and were willing to die as martyrs rather than deny their faith in Jesus as the Son of God.

3) Cornelius Tacitus Governor of Asia Minor (Turkey) in 112 AD. Tacitus (55-120 AD) has been called the greatest historian of Ancient Rome, as well as being Governor of Asia Minor (Turkey) in 112 AD. He wrote two major works: Annals and Histories. Being a Roman Governor and historian, he had access to the Roman Government archives. He confirmed many historical details in the Gospels, Acts and Romans.

In his Annals, written after 64 AD, he referred to Emperor Nero’s persecution of the Christians for allegedly burning the city of Rome, which Nero himself had done:
“Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of the Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out only in Judea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind. Mockery of every sort was added to their deaths. Covered with the skins of beasts, they were torn by dogs and perished, or were nailed to crosses, or were doomed to the flames and burnt, to serve as a mighty illumination, when daylight was expired” (Annals 15,44).
This reference shows that: i) Christ lived during the reign of Tiberius Caesar (AD 13-37).

ii) Pontius Pilate put him to death.

iii) The word ‘superstition’ suggests a religion.

iv) Christ had followers who were named Christians.

v) The Christians suffered under the Roman emperor Nero and were hated by others.

      So at family worship my PIMI husband was talking about baptism with my son. He asked him when he would like to get baptized and my son said “Dad I’m not in any rush. Jesus was 29 when he got baptized”.
      I did not coach him or teach him this. I was just so thrilled that he is thinking more for himself and using logic.
      Also, what the hell was Jesus doing from age 10-30 before his ministry anyways?
      But dont think about Jesus getting himself and his family financially secured for 10 years before spending 3 preaching... that is thinking that is not tolerated by the borg!

Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. .The name Jesus (Gr., I·e·sous′) corresponds to the Hebrew name Jeshua (or, in fuller form, Jehoshua), meaning “Jehovah Is Salvation.” The name itself was not unusual, many men being so named in that period. He is also referred to as Jesus Christ, from the Greek Khri·stos′, the equivalent of the Hebrew Ma·shi′ach(Messiah), and means “Anointed One.” Our Modern day, most widely used Gregorian calendar uses the terms B.C. (Before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini = Year of our Lord in Latin) basing our current year of 2014 as the year since his supposed birth according to a medieval estimate.

      The person who became known as Jesus Christ did not begin life here on earth. In heaven he was known as Michael the Archangel. He himself spoke of his prehuman heavenly life. (Joh 3:13; 6:38, 62; 8:23, 42, 58) John 1:1, 2 gives the heavenly name of the one who became Jesus, saying: “In the beginning the Word [Gr., Lo′gos] was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god [“was divine,” AT; Mo; or “of divine being,”Böhmer; Stage (both German)]. This one was in the beginning with God.” Since Jehovah is eternal and had no beginning (Ps 90:2; Re 15:3), the Word’s being with God from “the beginning” must here refer to the beginning of Jehovah’s creative works. This is confirmed by other texts identifying Jesus as “the firstborn of all creation,” “the beginning of the creation by God.” (Hello guest!

      That Jehovah was truly the Father or Life-Giver to this firstborn Son and, hence, that this Son was actually a creature of God is evident from Jesus’ own statements. He pointed to God as the Source of his life, saying, “I live because of the Father.” According to the context, this meant that his life resulted from or was caused by his Father, even as the gaining of life by dying men would result from their faith in Jesus’ ransom sacrifice.—Joh 6:56, 57.

      Logically, it was to this firstborn Son that Jehovah said: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness.” (Ge 1:26) All these other created things were not only created “through him” but also “for him,” as God’s Firstborn and the “heir of all things.”—Hello guest!

      Did Jesus really say He was God?
      That’s exactly how Jesus’ original audience seemed to take it when He said, “I and the Father are one.” In fact, the Jews were ready to kill Him right there! Why? “Because you,” they said, “a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33).
      On another occasion, He used the personal name of Israel’s God–the name revealed to Moses (Exodus 3:14)–to refer to Himself. And He even used the Torah for context, so no one would misunderstand Him: “Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58). This would be about wild as telling a Muslim, “I am your God, Allah.” Don’t try that in Saudi Arabia! It’s no wonder the Jews tried to stone Him to death. That was the exact penalty for blasphemy under the Jewish legal system. It was pretty clear to everyone there  that He was saying, “I am Israel’s God.”

      Why Jesus is God? The Apostle Thomas called Jesus God.John 20:27-29: 2. The Apostle Peter called Jesus God.2 Peter 1:1: 3.The Apostle John called Jesus God.John 1:1-3, 4.God the Father called Jesus God.Hebrews 1:8: 5. God the Father called Jesus God. 6.Isaiah the Prophet said the Messiah would be God.Isaiah 9:67. The Jews who crucified Jesus understood Him to be saying that He was equal with God.John 5:18: 8.Jesus called Himself "I AM", the Old Testament name for God (Exodus 3:14).John 8:58-59. 9.Jesus calls Himself "the Alpha and Omega," the title of Almighty God.Revelation 22:12-13. 10. Like God (Gen. 1:1) Jesus created.Colossians 1:16-1711. Like God, Jesus forgives sin.Mark 2:5-7, 10-11:12. Like God, Jesus gives eternal life.John 10:27-28: 13.

      NOT ASHAMED OF JESUS CHRIST 
      Jehovah's Witnesses very much do believe in Jesus. Jehovah's Witnesses try to follow closely the
      teachings and behavior of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:21)
      Jehovah's Witnesses teach that no salvation occurs without Christ (Acts 4:12), that accepting Christ's sacrifice is a requirement for true worship, that every prayer must acknowledge Christ, that Christ is the King of God's Kingdom, that Christ is the head of the Christian congregation, that Christ is immortal and above every creature, even that Christ was the 'master worker' in creating the universe.
      And when people become Jehovah’s Witnesses, they are baptized in the name of Jesus.—Matthew 28:18, 19.
      Why Do Some Say That Jehovah's Witnesses Are Not Christians?
      Many falsely claim that Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in Jesus. They may do this due to a misunderstanding or because they wish to depict Jehovah's Witnesses in a bad light. 
      Jehovah's Witnesses believe in what the Bible says and what Jesus himself claimed...that Jesus is the SON OF God. Jesus is God's "only-begotten" son...the only being directly created by God. (John 1:18) 
      Jesus is "the beginning of the creation of God." (Rev. 3:14)
      He is the "firstborn of all creation". (Col. 1:15)
      Even though Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that Jesus is God Himself, this does not mean that they don't believe in Jesus! They believe that he is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. In fact, he is the second most important person in the Universe next to Jehovah God Himself.

      The Book of Daniel is the angel Gabriel’s witness to Daniel about God’s Kingdom.  Gabriel gives details about God’s Kingdom, what that Kingdom will do for mankind, and he witnesses about the coming Messiah and identifies to Daniel who the Ruler of God’s Kingdom would be.
      “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever,” (Daniel 2:44)
      “You should know and understand that from the issuing of the word to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem until Mes·siʹah the Leader, there will be 7 weeks, also 62 weeks. She will be restored and rebuilt, with a public square and moat, but in times of distress.  “And after the 62 weeks, Mes·siʹah will be cut off, with nothing for himself.” (Daniel 9:25-26) The Hebrew word Messiah is translated ‘Christ’ in English.  The prophecy mentions “7 weeks, also 62 weeks”—a total of 69 weeks.  Therefore, the prophetic 69 weeks amount to 69 units of 7 years each, or a total of 483 years. If we count from 455 B.C.E., a period of 483 years takes us to the year 29 C.E. That was exactly the year when

And there will occur a time of distress such as has not occurred since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape, everyone who is found written down in the book.” (Daniel 12:1) Yes in 1914, Michael the Great Prince stands up to begin Ruling as King of God’s Kingdom.  Michael is the Mighty God in Isaiah 9:6, the Prince of Peace, the Angel of Great Counsel who is Wisdom in Proverbs 8.  Michael is the one Philippians spoken of has being given the Name. “Keep this mental attitude in you that was also in Christ Jesus,  who, although he was existing in God’s form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God.  No, but he emptied himself and took a slave’s form and became human.  More than that, when he came as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death, yes, death on a torture stake” (Philippians 2:5-8)
      For this very reason, God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name,  so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend—of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground—  and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)
      “And she gave birth to a son, a male, who is to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away to God and to his throne.” (Rev 12:5)  “And war broke out in heaven: Miʹcha·el and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled  but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven.  So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.” (Rev 12:7-9)
      Notice what the following verse calls Michael. “I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
      “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God!  And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death.” (Rev 12:10-11)
      “the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16)  Commanding Call, an Archangel’s Voice and with God’s Trumpet all point to the Word of God, the Lord himself Jesus Christ.  “As for you, Daniel, keep the words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.” (Daniel 12:4)
      Then Gabriel tells Daniel: “Go, Daniel, because the words are to be kept secret and sealed up until the time of the end.  Many will cleanse themselves and whiten themselves and will be refined. And the wicked ones will act wickedly, and none of the wicked will understand; but those having insight will understand.” (Daniel 12:9-10)
      “If, in fact, the good news we declare is veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing,  among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)
      “For we are preaching, not about ourselves, but about Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake.” (2 Corinthians 4:5)  “For if you publicly declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and exercise faith in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one exercises faith for righteousness, but with the mouth one makes public declaration for salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10) “And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
      This is a small synopsis of the scriptures of the glorious good news about the Christ.  To gain understanding to keep on living: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time,  while you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

      You may be surprised to find out that the trinity doctrine does not accept Jesus Christ.  It promotes a false gospel that ‘three separate persons make up God’ which is unbiblical. Therefore, it is not unusual to come across an apostate trinitarian who deny the teachings of Jesus Christ.
      When Jesus Christ stated that ‘God is a Spirit’ in (John 4:24) trinitarians proclaim that Christ was lying because their doctrine teaches that God is made up of three separate PERSONS.  In John 17:1 Jesus addresses his Father in prayer, he said: “Father,… and in John 17:3  he states, “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God”  Was Jesus addressing God the Father or the trinity itself?
      Trinitarians proclaim he was not addressing the trinity itself, but God the Father.  Wouldn’t that prove that the trinity is a False God?  “He stands in opposition and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits down in the temple of God, publicly showing himself to be a god.” (2 Thessalonians 2:4)
      As Jesus continue his teachings he states, “God is a Spirit, and those worshipping him must worship with spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)  Notice those worshiping HIM is in singular?  Not ‘us’ ‘we’ they’ ‘them’ or even ME.  Since trinitarians admit that the trinity is not God itself, aren’t trinitarians worshipping ‘gods’?  None of them worship God the Father alone who Jesus claims to be the only true God in (John 17:3)  Jesus Christ continues, “Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for indeed, the Father is looking for ones like these to worship him.” (John 4:23)
      According to Jesus, only the Father was to be worshipped, not a trinity of ‘gods’.  Jesus made his Father’s Name known to his disciples. “I have made your name manifest to the men whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have observed your word.” (John 17:6)  Jesus even went as far to teach his disciples to pray this way: “Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.” 
      If you take a closer look at the trinity doctrine, NONE of the Persons have a NAME.  It’s a generic formula borrowed from Pagan Worship. Trinitarians shout and yell that, Jesus is God the Son in the trinity.  But the trinity itself simply doesn’t give witness about Jesus.  When asked to show the doctrine they often turn red and say that I must simply believe them.  Then I ask, since the trinity doesn’t state that Jesus is God the Son, show one scripture that states that. They hee and haw in frustration and begin to taunt and curse not able to find a single verse. You won’t find God the Son or God the Holy Spirit in the Bible because it simply isn’t.  There is a HUGE difference from God the Son and son of God.  If Jesus is the son of God, then whose son is he?  The trinity doesn’t have three sons does it?
      Jesus is not the only person to give witness about his God and Father.  The Apostles would greet one another with a similar phrase.  “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,” (1 Peter 1:3)   The trinity omits the Name of God, and it omits the Name of Christ.  Matter of fact, here is what the scriptures state about the trinity. “For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those not acknowledging Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.” (2 John 7)
      Have you accepted the mark of the Beast and not even know it?  In Ancient times, the trinity was symbolized by three snakes, each snake would chase its own tail looking like

      The Memorial of Christ is not the Last Supper that the world continues to celebrate. The Last Supper can also be rendered the Last Passover Meal. The Jewish Day began at Sunset.  Since the Sun sets at various times, the Passover Supper would begin after the Sun disappeared from the Horizon with darkness setting in. The Last Passover Meal was Nisan 14th, 33 CE with the abolishment of the Old Covenant.
      When evening came, he was reclining at the table with the 12 disciples. ?While they were eating, he said: “Truly I say to you, one of you will betray me.” (
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )   The event that concluded the Last Passover Meal was the dismissal of an unfaithful apostle.  Jesus answered: “It is the one to whom I will give the piece of bread that I dip.” So after dipping the bread, he took it and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. ?After Judas took the piece of bread, then Satan entered into him. So Jesus said to him: “What you are doing, do it more quickly.”  (Hello guest!

      Praised be {Jehovah} the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, (1 Peter 1:3) Jesus spoke these things, and raising his eyes to heaven, he said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your son so that your son may glorify you, (John 17:1)  This means everlasting life, their coming to know YOU, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. (John 17:3)  I have made your name manifest to the men whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have observed your word. (John 17:6)  I have given them the glory that you have given me, in order that they may be one just as we are one. (John 17:22)  Righteous Father, the world has, indeed, not come to know you, but I know you, and these have come to know that you sent me. ?I have made your name known to them and will make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.” (John 17:25-26)
      You must pray, then, this way: “Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. ?Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.” (Matthew 6:9-10)  Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; ?whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it. (Matthew 17:13-14)  Concerning that day or the hour nobody knows, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father. (Mark 13:32)  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus, (1 Timothy 2:5)  Jesus said to him: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)  No man can come to me unless the Father, who sent me, draws him,and I will resurrect him on the last day. (John 6:44)
      “That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.”

      Who would reject the Baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ? The Answer may surprise you.  In fulfillment of prophecy Jesus stated, “And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
      The Catholic Encyclopedia, II, page 263:“The baptismal formula was changed from the name of Jesus Christ to the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by the Catholic Church in the second century.”
      “The Demonstratio Evangelica” by Eusebius: Eusebius was the Church historian and Bishop of Caesarea. On page 152 Eusebius quotes the early book of Matthew that he had in his library in Caesarea. According to this eyewitness of an unaltered Book of Matthew that could have been the original book or the first copy of the original of Matthew. Eusebius informs us of Jesus’ actual words to his disciples in the original text of Matthew 28:19: “With one word and voice He said to His disciples: “Go, and make disciples of all nations in My Name, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” That “Name” is Jesus.
      The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries, I, page 275:“It is often affirmed that the words in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost are not the ipsissima verba [exact words] of Jesus, but…a later liturgical addition.”
      Catholic Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger: He makes this confession as to the origin of the chief Trinity text of Matthew 28:19. “The basic form of our (Matthew 28:19 Trinitarian) profession of faith took shape during the course of the second and third centuries in connection with the ceremony of baptism. So far as its place of origin is concerned, the text (Matthew 28:19) came from the city of Rome.” — Joseph Ratzinger (pope Benedict XVI) Introduction to Christianity: 1968 edition, pp. 82, 83.
      How did the Hebrew Book of Matthew 28:18-20 read? “Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth.  Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations in MY Name,  teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.” (Hebrew Matthew 28:18-20)

      How Is Jesus Christ a "Mighty God?"
      The Promise of a Prince of Peace
      At the time of his miraculous birth, the one born to be the Messiah received the name Jesus, meaning “Jehovah Is Salvation.”
      But he has other names, prophetic names that outline his key role and his elevated position. One such name is Immanuel, meaning “With Us Is God.” (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. , footnote) Isaiah now describes another prophetic name: “There has been a child born to us, there has been a son given to us; and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )
      Jesus is also “Mighty God” and “Eternal Father.” This does not mean that he usurps the authority and position of Jehovah, who is “God Our Father.” (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) “He [Jesus] . . . gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God.” (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) 
      He is called Mighty God, not Almighty God. Jesus never thought of himself as God Almighty, for he spoke of his Father as “the only true God,” that is, the only God who should be worshiped. (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )
      In the Scriptures, the word “god” can mean “mighty one” or “strong one.” (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) 
      Before Jesus came to earth, he was “a god,” “existing in God’s form.” After his resurrection, he returned to an even higher position in the heavens. (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) 
      Further, the designation “god” carries an additional implication. Judges in Israel were called “gods”—once by Jesus himself. (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )

      Clearly, he is well named Mighty God.

      How was Linen used in the Bible? 
      The cleanness and purity of white linen, it is used in the Scriptures to symbolize righteousness.
      The robe of fine white linen worn by the Aaronic high priest was to be woven in checkerwork, evidence that the Israelites were well acquainted with the art, being able to weave patterns into their fabrics.—Ex 28:39.
      In the construction of the tabernacle, Bezalel and Oholiab were experts whose ability was increased and sharpened by God’s holy spirit, so that they could do the required work exactly according to the pattern given by Jehovah. (Ex 35:30-35)
      Also, there were women with fine ability in this direction, spinning thread from flax and from wool. (Ex 35:25, 26)
      In making the fabric for the ephod of Aaron the high priest, the workmen “beat plates of gold to thin sheets, and . . . cut out threads to work in among the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple and the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen, as the work of an embroiderer.”—Ex 39:2, 3.
      Linen was woven from flax, which has much longer fibers than cotton and is easier to spin but is harder to dye. Linen was a cherished item in the wardrobes of kings and high officials. Joseph was clothed with “garments of fine linen” when he was made a ruler in Egypt. (Ge 41:42) Also, Mordecai went out from before the Persian king in royal apparel of blue and linen. (Es 8:15) Women valued clothing made of linen.—Pr 31:22.
      Other Uses. Cloth bands were used as swaddling bands for newborn babies. (Lu 2:7) The Jews also had the custom of preparing bodies for burial by binding them with bandages of clean linen along with spices (not an embalming process such as the Egyptians practiced). (Joh 19:40; Mt 27:59)
      After Jesus’ resurrection John and Peter found the bandages and the cloth that had been upon Jesus rolled up separately lying in the tomb. (Joh 20:5-7)
      When Lazarus was resurrected he came out of the tomb with his countenance still bound up with the cloth that had been placed over his head at burial—apparently a long piece of linen fabric.—Joh 11:44.
      Money was sometimes kept wrapped in a cloth. This was the way the wicked slave referred to in one of Jesus’ illustrations kept his mina instead of investing it. (Lu 19:20) Money was often carried in the voluminous folds of the bosom of the garment, probably wrapped in such cloths.
      God’s law to the people of Israel commanded: “You must not wear mixed stuff of wool and linen together.” (De 22:11; see also Le 19:19.) Regarding this, theEncyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, 1973, Vol. 14, col. 1213) remarked: “The clothing of the priests was notably exempt from the prohibition of [sha·ʽat·nez′] [a garment of two sorts of thread, NW]. Exodus 28:6, 8, 15 and 39:29 prescribe that various pieces be made of linen and colored wool interwoven. . . . This suggests that the general prohibition was grounded on the taboo character of such a mixture, pertaining exclusively to the realm of the sacred.”
      Figurative Usage. Because of the cleanness and purity of white linen, it is used in the Scriptures to symbolize righteousness. The garments next to the high priest’s body, namely the drawers, robe, and turban, as well as the drawers, robes, and headgears for the underpriests, were made of fine, white linen. (Ex 28:39-42; compare Job 29:14.)
      The bride of the Lamb is arrayed in bright, clean, fine linen, for “the fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the holy ones.” (Re 19:8) The armies following Jesus Christ in heaven are represented as being clothed in white, clean, fine linen. (Re 19:14) Babylon the Great, which has been rich in the traffic of merchandise including fine linen, also has put on an appearance of righteousness, being “clothed with fine linen,” while at the same time carrying on the activities of a harlot.—Re 18:3, 12, 16
      Figurative Use. Babylon the Great is depicted as being arrayed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, representing luxury. (Re 18:16) But in the case of the bride of Christ the fine linen of her apparel is clearly said to represent “the righteous acts of the holy ones.”
      Likewise the heavenly armies are shown clothed in white, clean, fine linen, indicative of their carrying on war in righteousness.—Re 19:8, 11, 14; see also Da 10:5; Re 15:6

      JESUS CHRIST DIDN'T JUST SAVE OUR LIFE - HE MADE OUR LIFE WORTH SAVING! 
      To benefit from God’s promises, though, we must understand the role Jesus Christ plays in our salvation and exercise faith in him. Jesus himself said: “God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) 
      Pointing to the central role of Jesus Christ in this matter, the apostle Peter said: “There is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.” (Acts 4:12) 
      The apostle Paul and his associate Silas urged a sincere inquirer: “Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will get saved, you and your household.”—(Acts 16:30, 31)
      Yes, Jesus Christ is “the Chief Agent of life,” and salvation is possible only through him. (Acts 3:15) But how can one man be such a key figure in saving us? Having a clear understanding of his role in this regard should strengthen our hope of salvation.

Many in the city had heard about Jesus and the extraordinary things he had done.          They kept telling others about him. (Hello guest!

Consider a few examples of the far-reaching influence that Jesus has had      on human history.
      The calendar commonly used in many parts of the world is based on the year when Jesus is thought to have been born.
      Some two billion people—about a third of the world’s population—call themselves Christians.
      Islam, with more than a billion members worldwide, teaches that Jesus is “a greater prophet than Abraham, Noah, and Moses.”
      Many of Jesus’ wise sayings have, in various forms, entered everyday speech. Among them are the following:
      Jesus’ influence is beyond question. Yet, people hold widely different ideas and beliefs about him. Hence, you may wonder, ‘Who really is Jesus Christ?’ The Bible alone tells us where Jesus came from, how he lived, and why he died. Knowing those truths about him can have a profound effect on your life—now and in the future.
      “Jesus,” the personal name of this prophet from Nazareth, means “Jehovah Is Salvation.” The word “Christ” is a title that means “Anointed One,” signifying that Jesus was anointed, or appointed by God to a special position.

      God’s foremost judicial officer, Jesus Christ, is “the Lion that is of the tribe of Judah.” (Re 5:5) Appropriately, therefore, the lion, as a symbol of courageous justice, is associated with Jehovah’s presence and throne.—Eze 1:10; 10:14; Re 4:7.

      - Let Jehovah Guide you to Rest and Put Confidence in Him! - He Will Save Us from Harm!   
      1. "Jehovah is my Shepherd.
      I will lack nothing.                            

      2   In grassy pastures he makes me lie down;
      He leads me to well-watered resting-places.

      3   He refreshes me.
      He leads me in the paths of righteousness for the sake of his name.

      4   Though I walk in the valley of deep shadow, I fear no harm,
      For you are with me;
      Your rod and your staff reassure me.

      5   You prepare a table for me before my enemies.
      You refresh my head with oil;
      My cup is well-filled.

      6   Surely goodness and loyal love will pursue me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of Jehovah for all my days."

      Prière de Moïse qui nous apprend un message important pour les enfants de Dieu de nos jours.
       
      Ô Jéhovah, tu as été notre demeure de génération en génération.
      Avant que les montagnes soient nées
      ou que tu aies donné naissance à la terre et au sol productif,
      depuis toujours et pour toujours, tu es Dieu.
      Tu fais retourner le mortel à la poussière ;
      tu dis : « Vous, fils des hommes, retournez à la poussière. »
      Car, à tes yeux, mille ans sont comme le jour d’hier quand il est passé,
      comme une veille pendant la nuit.
      Tu emportes les humain ; ils deviennent comme un instant de sommeil.
      Au matin, ils sont comme l’herbe qui germe.
      Le matin, elle fleurit et se renouvelle,
      mais le soir, elle se flétrit et se dessèche.
      Oui, nous sommes consumés par ta colère
      et terrifiés par ta fureur.
      Tu mets nos fautes devant toi ;
      à la lumière de ton visage, nos secrets sont dévoilés.
      Nos jours déclinent à cause de ta fureur ;
      nos années s’achèvent tel un murmure.
      La durée de notre vie est de 70 ans,
      ou de 80 ans si l’on est particulièrement robuste.
      Mais elle est remplie de malheur et de chagrin ;
      elle passe vite, et nous nous envolons.
      Qui peut sonder la puissance de ta colère ?
      Ta fureur est aussi grande que la crainte qui t’est due.
      Apprends-nous à compter nos jours
      pour que nous puissions acquérir un cœur sage.
      Reviens, ô Jéhovah ! Jusqu’à quand cela va-t-il durer ?
      Aie pitié de tes serviteurs.
       
      "Au matin, rassasie-nous de ton amour fidèle,
      pour que nous puissions crier de joie et nous réjouir tous les jours de notre vie.
      Réjouis-nous pendant autant de jours que ceux où tu nous as affligés,
      pendant autant d’années que celles où nous avons connu le malheur.
      Que tes serviteurs voient ton action
      et que leurs fils voient ta splendeur.
      Que la faveur de Jéhovah notre Dieu soit sur nous !
      Puisses-tu faire réussir l’œuvre de nos mains,
      oui, fais réussir l’œuvre de nos mains. "
       
      Celui qui habite dans le lieu secret du Très-Haut
      logera à l’ombre du Tout-Puissant.
      Je veux dire à Jéhovah : « Tu es mon refuge et ma forteresse,
      mon Dieu en qui j’ai confiance. »
      Car il te délivrera du piège de l’oiseleur
      et de l’épidémie destructrice.
      Avec ses plumes il te couvrira,
      et sous ses ailes tu te réfugieras
      Sa fidélité sera un grand bouclier et un mur protecteur.
      Tu ne craindras ni les terreurs de la nuit,
      ni la flèche qui vole pendant le jour,
      ni l’épidémie qui rôde dans l’obscurité,
      ni la destruction qui ravage en plein midi.
      Mille tomberont à tes côtés
      et dix mille à ta droite,
      mais rien de cela ne s’approchera de toi.
      Toi, tu ne feras que voir cela de tes yeux
      quand tu assisteras à la punition des méchants.
      Puisque tu as dit : « Jéhovah est mon refuge »,
      tu as fait du Très-Haut ta demeure ;aucun désastre ne t’arrivera
      et aucun fléau ne s’approchera de ta tente.
      Car il donnera à ses anges un ordre à ton sujet,
      pour te protéger où que tu ailles.
      Ils te porteront sur leurs mains,
      pour que ton pied ne heurte pas de pierre. 
      Sur le jeune lion et le cobra tu marcheras ;
      tu piétineras le lion à crinière et le gros serpent.
      Dieu a dit : « Parce qu’il a de l’affection pour moi, je vais le délivrer.
      Je vais le protéger parce qu’il connaît mon nom.
      Il m’appellera à l’aide, et je lui répondrai.
      Je serai avec lui en temps de détresse.
      Je le délivrerai et le glorifierai.
      Je le rassasierai d’une longue vie
      et je lui ferai voir mes actes sauveurs. »
       
      "Au matin, rassasie-nous de ton amour fidèle,
      pour que nous puissions crier de joie et nous réjouir tous les jours de notre vie.
      Réjouis-nous pendant autant de jours que ceux où tu nous as affligés,
      pendant autant d’années que celles où nous avons connu le malheur.
      Que tes serviteurs voient ton action
      et que leurs fils voient ta splendeur.
      Que la faveur de Jéhovah notre Dieu soit sur nous !
      Puisses-tu faire réussir l’œuvre de nos mains,
      oui, fais réussir l’œuvre de nos mains."

      JÉHOVAH SON NOM EST JALOUX, IL FAIT PARTIE DE SON NOM, POURQUOI?
      Exode 34:14 bible 1985 
      JÉHOVAH SON NOM EST JALOUX POURQUOI ?
      Jéhovah est le Dieu de la création de lui toutes choses est venue à l'existence, car il est le Créateur universel et le Père de tout les vivants, de tout ce qui existent dans l'univers. Quand nous lisons sa parole, beaucoup de versets et de chapitres nous démontrent, comment il voit notre existence et comment il nous guide vers le chemin de la lumière et de la vérité.
      EN PROVERBE CHAPITRE 2 JÉHOVAH PAR SON ASSISTANT, NOUS TRANSMET UNE LETTRE INSPIRANTE PAR SALOMON ET QUI TÉMOIGNE DE LA GRANDEUR DE SA PERSONNE, COMMENT IL EST UN PÈRE AIMANT, LE PÈRE DE TOUT LES VIVANTS ET DE TOUTES CHOSES, VOICI CE QU'IL RÉVÈLE À SALOMON:
      Mon fils (NOUS), si tu fais bon accueil à mes paroles et si tu gardes précieusement mes commandements, en prêtant une oreille attentive à la sagesse et en inclinant ton coeur vers le discernement, si , de plus, tu appelles l'intelligence et si tu élèves la voie pour obtenir le discernement si tu continues à chercher cela comme de l'argent et si tu le recherches sans relâche comme des trésors cachés, alors tu comprendras ce que signifie craindre Jéhovah et tu trouveras la connaissance de Dieu. Car Jéhovah lui-même donne la sagesse: de sa bouche viennent connaissance et discernement.
      PROVERBE 2 :1-6
      Dans ces versets Jéhovah nous enseigne, un fondement primordial à notre vie, une clef pour atteindre la connaissance et la sagesse, la logique, atteindre la pleine conscience.  Sa parole, la bible nous donne une vision par le fait d'acquérir la vision justes , les paroles justes, les pensées justes, la concentration justes,  les efforts justes, les actions justes, les moyens existences justes.
      Tout ce fondement de cette lois que Jéhovah a fondé est régis sur une vertue, qui est le fruit de l'Amour, car Dieu est Amour. Galates 5:22,23 et 1 Jean 4:8
      1cor 13:4 à 8 première ligne.
      Il est écris:
      L'amour est patient et bon. L'amour n'est pas jaloux, il ne se vante pas, ne se gonfle pas d'orgueil.
      N'agit pas de façon inconvenante,  ne cherche pas ses propres intérêts, ne s'irrite pas.
      Il ne tient pas compte du mal subi. Il ne se réjouit pas de l'injustice, mais se réjouit avec la vérité.
      Il supporte tout, croit tout, endure tout.
      L'amour ne disparaît jamais.
      JÉHOVAH est un Dieu qui montre l'exemple à suivre. Il démontre par sa création qu'Il est un Dieu d'équilibre et il n'impose à personne ce que lui même ne ferait. Jéhovah connaît toutes choses car tout ce que l'on vit dans notre existence maintenant, il connaît le bien d'une action et la conséquence d'une mauvaise action et cela en toutes actions bonnes ou mauvaises.
      Pendant sa méditation sur la création, avant qu'il ait créé notre univers, Jéhovah a créé une matrice du bien et une matrice du mal. De ces deux matrices, il maria les deux essences, LE BIEN ET LE MAL, dans sa pensée créatrice mais cela fut comme une assemblage de tout les possibilités combinables, ainsi créer une symbiose parfaite entre le mal et le bien.  Il fonda une loi pour ces lois du mal et du bien. Cela fut pour créer la loi de toutes les énergies connues et inconnues à notre pensée, pour que seul le bien soit unanime entre chacunes d'elles. (Genèse 3:22a)
      Ces deux matrices devaient être maitrisées par Jéhovah lui même, avant de créer sa première création qui fut dévoilé en Proverbe 8:22à36. Jéhovah médita sur le bien de toutes choses et la conséquences de chaque choses. Il a vu comment la mauvaise union de deux éléments ou plus, pourrait devenir un danger pour l'équilibre de sa création et une bienfaisance parfaite dans un mariage uni et parfait DE TOUTES CHOSES.
      JÉHOVAH EST L'INSTIGATEUR  DU MARIAGE.
      Prenons une exemple: Imaginons un évènement où en assemblant deux liquides, qui sont opposés l'un à l'autre, qu'est ce qui pourrait en résulter et voir la conséquence de leur union, si nous ne prenons pas de précaution en les mélangent que se passera t'il?
      Voilà vous décidez de mélanger du lait avec du chlore, si vous feriez cela sans prendre conscience avant votre action, le danger de mélanger ces deux liquides. Votre vie pourrait être changé, par une conséquence très néfaste de cette action et résulter de brûlure sévèrent aux poumons et voir votre peau être brulée au troisième degrés pendant toute le reste de votre vie. Car en mélangeant ces deux liquides ensembles vous créez un réaction chimique qui créerait une bombe effervescente très dangereuse. Quand Jéhovah a médité sur le mariage de chaques éléments de son univers physique, particules, atomes et molécules, énergies, ect. Il a bien calculé chaques choses à sa pleine minutie, avant de commencer le début de sa création. Jéhovah usa de minutie et regarda toutes les formes de conséquences que l'union de deux contraires pourrait résulter dans le mariage de deux éléments ou qu'apporterait l'utilité de leur union à sa futur création. Alors Jéhovah qui est le Dieu de la création connaît toutes choses entre le bien et le mal, il connaît le chemin de l'équilibre parfait entre chaque formes d'énergies, matières, actions, pensées, désirs, émotions et sentiments...,.etc
      Allons ensemble en Exode 34:14 et dans ce verset je vais utilisé la version de 1985 ( Les saintes écritures traduction du monde nouveau) pour élaborer le thème de ce discours. 
      Exode 34 :14 allons lire  ensemble la partie b de ce verset.
      Moïse écrit: Par ce que Jéhovah dont le Nom est Jaloux,  c'est un Dieu jaloux.
      Comment dans ce verset, pouvons nous dire que Son Nom est Jaloux, car il est un Dieu jaloux ?
      Dans la bible nous distinguons Jéhovah comme un Dieu d'Amour et qu'il est la personnification de l'Amour mais ici, il est écris, qu'il est un Dieu jaloux et même son nom est "Jaloux "avec une majuscule. Dans le passage de 1 cor 13:4 à 8 a, il est écris que l'Amour véritable n'est pas jaloux.
      POURQUOI JÉHOVAH DIEU EST JALOUX ET QUE SON NOM EST JALOUX AVEC UNE MAJUSCULE? 
      COMMENT LA JALOUSIE PEUT - ELLE ETRE UNE QUALITÉ DE DIEU?
      Le thème "Jaloux" étymologiquement fait référence à une définition différente de notre pensée.
      "Jaloux" veut dire le sens étymologique (Le premier de toute chose, L'Unique.) Alors nous pouvons par cette définition dire que notre Dieu dont son nom est "Jaloux" représente véritablement son nom car il est le Premier Dieu et qu'Il est l'Unique Dieu universel, Créateur de l'univers et qu'il est le Seul à avoir toujours existé et qu'il est le seul vrai Dieu,  À PART LUI IL N'Y A PAS DE DIEU AUTRE QUE LUI. En pensant que Jéhovah son Nom serait "Jaloux" ce nom serait approprié car il est le seul Dieu et Unique Dieu de l'univers, IL EST LE SEUL À CONNAÎTRE TOUTES CONNAISSANCES ET SAGESSES, ETC. VOILÀ POURQUOI SON NOM EST JALOUX, PERSONNE NE CONNAÎT, LA CONNAISSANCE DE DIEU.
      Quand Jéhovah a créé Adam, il lui donna le nom de "Adam" dont son Nom est: "homme tiré du sol". Quand Jéhovah a assemblé, Eve , par l'assemblage d'une création moléculaire, car "Eve" fut issue de l'adn d'Adam, elle est devenue, la femme compatible parfaite pour Adam. Cette femme porta le nom de "Eve" qui veut dire : "vivre" car d'elle toutes les génération futur des humains seraient créé en son sein de procréation par le début de la naissances de ces enfant et de ces petits enfants. 
      Alors là signification du nom de Dieu "Jaloux" qui signifie "Premier de toute choses et l'Unique" Jéhovah le Dieu de l'Univers" le nom Jaloux devient réaliste à notre compréhension. Jéhovah veut que nous comprenions son Nom. Comprendre ainsi la raison de ce Nom "Jaloux" dans (Exode 34:14 partie b) QUI FUT RÉVÈLÉ PAR MOÏSE.
      Pourquoi Jéhovah est un Dieu jaloux et comment le thème de jaloux peut être une qualité de Jéhovah et comment le prouver?
      COMME AU DÉBUT DE CE DISCOURS, J'AI FAIT SORTIR UN POINT IMPORTANT DE PROVERBE 2:1 À 6  JÉHOVAH EST UN PÈRE AIMANT ET DANS CE PASSAGE CELUI QUI SUIT SON CHEMIN CONNAÎTRA LA SAGESSE, L'INTELLIGENCE ET LE DISCERNEMENT.
      Alors voyons ensemble comment la terme jaloux est une qualité de Jéhovah. 
      Le terme que Dieu est "jaloux" est apporté dans le verset d'Exode 34:14 comme une adjectif de protection. Ce terme"jaloux"est basé sur le fait que son Amour est parfait et l'Amour que Jéhovah apporte envers les humains de la terre et envers toutes sa Création et fait partie de la qualité du terme "jaloux". JÉHOVAH  a créé son dessein pour le voir grandir et vivre la joie de voir toute sa création jouïr de la vie et non de la mort. 
      Quand le Fils de Dieu est venu au monde qu'elle était l'émotion qui s'animait en lui.
      Allons en proverbe 8 :22 à 31 et regardons les paroles de Jésus:
      Dans ce texte, Jésus est détaillé au féminin car il est le complément de la création, et à la fin, il montre qu'il est un mâle.  Je vais approfondir ce point par la suite.
      Il est écris: Jéhovah m'a( produite) ( féminin) comme le commencement de son action (oeuvre), la plus ancienne de ses oeuvres, d'autrefois. Depuis des temps antiques on m'a établie dans ma position, depuis le début, depuis des temps antérieurs à la terre. J'ai été (enfantée)( féminin), quand il n'y avait pas de mer profonde,  quand il n'y avait pas de sources débordantes d'eau. Avant que les montagnes furent misent en place, avant les collines, j'ai été (enfantée)( Féminin),  alors qu'il n'avait fait la terre et ses champs, ou la première motte de son sol. Quand il a préparé le ciel, j'étais là. Quand il a dessiné l'horizon à la surface de l'eau, quand il a placé les nuages en haut, quand il fondé les sources des profondeurs, quand il a imposé à la mer un décret interdisant à son eau d'aller au delà de ce qu'il ordonnait, quand il a posé les fondement de la terre, j'étais alors près de lui comme (un habile ouvrier)( masculin). J'étais (celle) ( féminin) à qui il était particulièrement( attaché)( masculin), jour après jour. JE ME RÉJOUISSAIT TOUT LE TEMPS DEVANT LUI: je me réjouissait au sujet de sa terre devenue habitable et j'étais particulièrement (attachée) (comme une mère) aux fils des hommes. Esprit Saint COMME JÉSUS  LE FILS DIEU EST FÉMININ ET AUSSI COMME LE PÈRE MASCULIN CAR JÉHOVAH RESPECTE LE PRINCIPE DE L'OEDIPE DE LA VIE.
      LE FILS DE DIEU ÉTAIT COMME DÉTAILLÉ COMME UNE FEMME (VIERGE AVISEE) SOUMISE À DIEU ( ATTACHÉE) ( ATTACHÉ) À LUI EN TOUT TEMPS COMME UN ENFANT QUI AIME SON PÈRE. DANS LE verset 30 LÀ, IL MONTRE QU'IL EST UN HABILE OUVRIER. ALORS NOUS VOYONS QUE JESUS À CETTE ÉPOQUE était UN MÂLE TRAVAILLANT SA FÉMINITÉ, et sa MASCULINITÉ, pour quelle raison? Car Jéhovah est le Dieu Createur et Jésus est le complément de la création, IL EST LA LUMIÈRE , quand le Fils de Dieu réalisait les oeuvres que Jéhovah lui donnait, il travaillait sa masculinité (HOMME). Dans le verset 30 il, le Fils de Dieu, devient au masculin car il utilise un pronom masculin "Un." Alors le Fils de Dieu fut la première oeuvre de Dieu. Nous voyons ce même détaille dans sa dernière prière avec ses douze apôtres. En Jean 17:24 à  la fin du verset il est écris:  TU M'AS AIMÉ AVANT LA FONDATION DU MONDE. NOUS VOYONS ICI  QUE JÉSUS LUI MÊME DÉMONTRE QUE JÉHOVAH L'AIMAIT ET QU'IL ÉTAIT SA PREMIÈRE CRÉATION.  NOUS SAVONS QUE LE FILS DE DIEU SUIVAIT LES PAS DE SON PÈRE, CAR IL DIT: QU'IL ÉTAIT (ATTACHÉE)(féminin), AU FILS DES HOMMES. ALORS NOUS POUVONS AFFIRMER QUE JÉHOVAH NOUS AIMENT VRAIMENT CAR LE FILS AIME LES HOMMES ( femme et homme) PAR UNE ATTACHEMENT PARTICULIÈRE. COMME JÉHOVAH AIME SON FILS D'UN ATTACHEMENT PARTICULIER ( comme un Père)
      EN PROVERBE 8 : 30,31 LE FILS DE DIEU DÉMONTRE PAR SA PLEINE VOLONTÉ QU'IL SE RÉJOUISSAIT EN TOUT TEMPS AVEC SON PÈRE. IL AIMAIT ÊTRE AVEC LUI CAR IL DIT QU'IL ÉTAIT (ATTACHÉE et ATTACHÉ) EN PENSÉE (MASCULIN ET FÉMININ)
      À LUI, D'UNE MANIÈRE PARTICULIÈRE. ALORS NOUS POUVONS DISTINGUER QUE LE FILS AVAIT LE LIBRE ARBITRE ET AUSSI QU'IL AIMAIT JÉHOVAH CAR IL RESSENTAIT ÊTRE AIMÉ PAR SON PÈRE ET DIEU CRÉATEUR. 
      ALORS SI NOUS DISONS QUE JÉHOVAH EST UN DIEU JALOUX NOUS VOYONS ICI QUE LE FILS ÉTAIT HEUREUX ET NON EN PRISON OU DOMINÉ PAR DIEU D'UNE MANIÈRE POSSESSIVE. SON ATTACHEMENT À SON PÈRE ÉTAIT DE SA PROPRE VOLONTÉ. ÊTRE AVEC DIEU EST UN BONHEUR IMMENSE ET JÉSUS LE DÉMONTRE DANS CES VERSETS ET AUSSI QUE LE FILS PARTICIPAIT À L'OEUVRE DE SON PÈRE ET IL PARTICIPAIT À LA JOIE DU PÈRE ÉTERNEL ET VIVANT UN BONHEUR CONSTANT.
      (DANS LA LETTRE DE JEAN en Jean chapitre 1) JEAN nous révèle que Jésus participa à la création de toutes choses, il est devenu lumière  ( devenu UN PARTICIPANT EN TOUTES CHOSES DANS EXISTENCES DE TOUTES ÉLÉMENTS, QUE CONSTITUENT LA CREATION DE DIEU,  dans le monde physique de notre univers. Alors comme un enfant est enfantée par une mère, Jésus est une mère et un homme en action sur le modelage de tout ce qui fut créé sous la loi du Père Créateur de toutes choses , notre DIEU JÉHOVAH LE TOUT PUISSANT DONNA À SON FILS LA POSSIBILITÉ DE PARTICIPER AU DESSEIN DE DIEU CAR L'ESPRIT SAINT DE DIEU LUI DONNAIT LA PUISSANCE DE LE FAIRE ET DE PLUS DIEU PAR L'ESPRIT SAINT PRÉCISAIT TOUTES CRÉATIONS DU FILS SOUS LA LOI DE SON DESSEIN.
      LA TERME JALOUX EST UNE QUALITÉ DE DIEU. VOIR LE NOM JALOUX EN MAJUSCULE, EST QUE JÉHOVAH EST L'UNIQUE DIEU DE TOUT L'UNIVERS ET LE SEUL QUI A TOUJOUR EXISTÉ et LE SEUL QUI CONNAÎT TOUTES ASSEMBLAGES DE TOUTES CHOSES CAR SON FILS OINT FUT UN PARTICIPANT AU DESSEIN DE DIEU.
      COMMENT NOUS ENFANTS DE DIEU, POUVONS NOUS BÉNÉFICIER DE LA JALOUSIE DE NOTRE CRÉATEUR  ET DE LA PROTECTION DE SON NOM "JALOUX"
      NOUS QUI AIMONS JÉHOVAH, POUR BÉNÉFICIER DE SA QUALITÉ PROTECTRICE NOUS DEVONS SUIVRE CELUI QUI FUT LE PREMIER CRÉÉ DE LA CRÉATION. CES PAROLES NOUS INSPIRENT DE VOIR QUE LE FILS DE DIEU VIVAIT ET VIT TOUJOUR UN BONHEUR ULTIME AVEC NOTRE DIEU CRÉATEUR QUI EST JÉHOVAH. JÉSUS QUAND IL ÉTAIT SUR LA TERRE A DÉMONTRÉ LES PRINCIPES LES PLUS IMPORTANT POUR CONNAÎTRE LA JOIE D'ÊTRE AIMÉ ET ATTACHÉ À NOTRE CRÉATEUR, ÊTRE AIMER PAR JÉHOVAH.
      Jésus à dit: Jean 8 :32 et proverbe 2 :1 à 6 Vous connaîtrez la vérité et la vérité vous libèrera. Quand aux versets de ( proverbe 2:1 à 6) ce passage nous dévoile que nous devons avoir le désir de l'écouter, avoir une oreille attentive à sa sagesse, CRAINDRE JÉHOVAH, ouvrir son coeur à lui, de montrer notre intention à le connaître et demander par la prière la sagesse, l'intelligence et le discernement. 
      EN EXODE 34:14  NOUS DEVONS AIMER JÉHOVAH NOTRE DIEU ET DE L'ADORER LUI SEUL ET PERSONNE D'AUTRE, CAR IL N'Y AUCUN AUTRE DIEU, QUE LUI SEUL. ALORS NOUS VOULONS ÊTRE AIMÉ DE JÉHOVAH, NOUS DEVONS L'AIMER COMME UN FILS ET UNE FILLES DE TOUT CE QUI EST EN NOUS D'UN AMOUR VÉRITABLE.
      En (Proverbe 2: 7 à 11) Jéhovah précise sa jalousie,comme qualité positive, et démontre à qui Jéhovah partage la sagesse et ,à qui, il donne Sa protection. Lisons ces versets ensemble, il est écris: Il garde précieusement sa sagesse pratique pour les hommes droits; il est un bouclier pour ceux qui se conduisent avec intégrité. Il veille sur le sentier des justes, et il protègera le chemin des fidèles. Alors tu comprendras aussi ce qui est juste et droit et équitable et tu comprendras quelle est la bonne voie à suivre. Quand la sagesse entrera dans ton coeur et que la connaissance deviendra agréable à ton âme la capacité de réflexion veillera sur toi et te préservera tout les jours de ta vie.
      Nous voyons dans ces versets que Jéhovah est attaché aux hommes femmes et enfants, qui ont des qualités particulières.  Il garde précieusement la sagesse pratique pour les hommes droits. Jéhovah use de son adjectif de protection (Jaloux) de Dieu aux hommes qui manifestent,  non seulement la qualité de la droiture mais aussi celle de la qualité de l'intégrité. Il est un bouclier "" Jaloux"" contre le méchant . 
      JÉHOVAH EST UN DIEU JALOUX COMME RELATE EXODE 34:14: JÉHOVAH DEMANDE UN ATTACHEMENT SANS PARTAGE. JÉHOVAH EST UN DIEU DONT SON NOM EST JALOUX  CAR IL PARTAGE LA SAGESSE DE LA VÉRITÉ, DE L'INTELLIGENCE ET DU DISCERNEMENT VÉRITABLE AUX HOMMES , FEMMES ET ENFANTS AUX COEUR DROIT ET QUI AGISSENT AVEC INTÉGRITÉ VENANT DU COEUR ET D'UN AMOUR SINCÈRE .
      À TOUT CEUX QUI VEULENT DEVENIR ENFANT DE JÉHOVAH , LE SEUL VRAI DIEU, RESTONS COURAGEUX, OBÉISSANT, INTÈGRE, AVEC UNE CRAINTE SALUTAIRE DEVANT LE SEUL VRAI ET UNIQUE DIEU ET QUE NOTRE AMOUR POUR JÉHOVAH, SOIT FERME POUR AINSI BÉNÉFICIER DE VIVRE LA PROMESSE DE NOTRE ROI JÉSUS CHRIST SON OINT ET AINSI DE VIVRE HEUREUX DANS LE PARADIS DE LA PROMESSE DE VIVRE SUR UNE TERRE NOUVELLE  POUR TOUJOUR. PSAUME 37:29 .
      NE RENONÇONS DE AUCUNE MANIÈRE DE SERVIR NOTRE DIEU AVEC VIGUEUR D'UN COEUR REMPLIS D'AMOUR VÉRITABLE.
