    Hello guest!

This funerary stele presents
under a long inscription in Aramaic
a figurative scene with a priest seated at the banquet.


The cult of the moon god, Sîn in Akkadian,
is already well established in the Aleppo region of Syria.
In the long dedication the deceased takes stock
of his life and says his desire for a beautiful death
and to enjoy the rest in the Hereafter without its remains being desecrated.

An epitaph The inscription reads: "Si Gabbor, a priest of Shahar at Neirab. This is my image. Because I have served him with integrity, he [Shahar] has given me a good reputation and a long life. On the day of my death, my mouth could still speak and I saw with my eyes four generations of my descendants. They were weeping and grieving over me. They put no silver or bronze objects beside me; they put nothing but my clothes on me, so that my tomb would not be violated. Whoever thou may be, O

The city of Ur was a moongod city, Haran where Abraham lived until his father died was a moongod city.   Sinai was also known to be a moongod region.  Moon worship was as prevalent as sun worship.  Many desert regions worshipped the moon because of the dew that came at night.

An epitaph

The inscription reads: "Si Gabbor, a priest of Shahar at Neirab. This is my image. Because I have served him with integrity, he [Shahar] has given me a good reputation and a long life. On the day of my death, my mouth could still speak and I saw with my eyes four generations of my descendants. They were weeping and grieving over me. They put no silver or bronze objects beside me; they put nothing but my clothes on me, so that my tomb would not be violated. Whoever thou may be, O thou who harmest me by moving me, may Shahar and Nikkal and Nusku make thy death shameful and may thy descendants perish."

      tie_bros(REPOST) Covering Sin: Psalms 32:3-5 David tells us that when he hid his sin he felt miserable. However, once he confessed his sins to Jehovah he felt relief. Though it may be embarrassing, confessing our sins and asking for forgiveness will give us peace of mind and help us to remain close to Jehovah.

      "Also, do not be grieving God’s holy spirit, with which you have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom."
      - Ephesians 4:30
       
      Be wrathful but do not sin.....
      Staying angry could be what could grieve the spirit.

      I am not sure if this is an official JW teaching or not but it was drilled into me as a child. I was taught that not accepting the GB as Gods sole channel was not just a sin but an unforgivable sin. So if you went there you were guaranteed destruction, even if later you repented and came back.
      Any one else taught this? Is this implied in the literature or maybe my Mom got this from a talk in the 70s or 80s.

      Artemis of Ephesus         CA 1202   Sully 1st floor   room 37 showcase 1 (3)       The goddess’s body is sheathed in a narrow tunic, decorated with rows of superimposed breasts or bulls’ testicles, symbols of fertility.   She is wearing a high calathos on her head. AR19   A close relationship has been established with the ‘ Great Artemis of the Ephesians ‘ (Acts 19:28) and the major goddesses of other peoples.   Unlike the virginal Greek Artemis, she was an opulent goddess of fertility and one of the mother-goddess figures.  Artemis of Ephesus and mother-goddess figures.
      A famous statue shows her with a black face, hands and feet. The imposing temple that is dedicated to her is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the word. Significant trade was built up around her cult. AR13     “Great is Ar´te·mis of the E·phe´sians!” Acts 19:28     Close analogies exist between her and Cybele, the Phrygian goddess, as well as other female representations of divine power in the countries of Asia (Ma of Cappadocia, Astarte of Phoenicia, and Atargatis and Myletta of Syria).   It could be said that all these divinities are merely variations of one and the same religious concept. AR14 She was represented with all the attributes of the Mother of the Gods and accordingly she wore a crown of towers, reminiscent of the Tower of Babel. AR15   Ephesus was the crucible where the pagan cult of the mother-goddess was Christianised and transformed into the fervent worship of Mary, who became “Mother of God”. AR16, AR17   It was to the Christians of Ephesus that Paul the Apostle announced such a change of direction.  - Acts 20:17-30, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, note.   Theatre of Ephesus  >   In 431 AD, the third ecumenical council held in this city gave Mary the title of 'Theotokos’, a Greek word meaning ‘God-bearer’. The use of this title by the Church was a determining factor in the development of the Doctrine of Mary. The prototype of Feast of the Assumption processions could be seen in those made in honour of Cybele and Artemis. AR18
