So, in that way it fits better to use still word Passover, even though it stopped working after Christ’s crucifixion.

Going back further in time, it was a day to celebrate the resurrection of the god Tammuz (Ishtar/Semiramis’s son). It would only make sense to use a pagan name to identify a pagan celebration in the context of the scripture speaking of King Herod. Yes?

I am not clear on the debate concerning 1 John 5:7. Could someone explain?

I am just trying to understand.

Thanks

Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
Joh 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
Joh 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
Joh 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Joh 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Joh 1:14 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.

Let’s see, the Word was in the beginning, the Word was with God, the Word was God, the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. I think that pretty well sums it up as to whether Christ is God, also the Word was made flesh….(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father). So Christ was also the Son. Why would I want to come out of the place where I am a joint heir with Christ Jesus, Son, God, Redeemer, King? The enemy of truth can quote the Bible better than any scholar but to deny Jesus is Lord over all is best explained here;

1Jn 2:22-23 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

I don’t intend to sound mean, but I will defend Jesus as very God AND the Son of God.

You seem to think the BoE should be cannonized scripture. Why? If it was all truly written by Enoch the patriarch, it would predate the rest of the Tanakh (O.T.) by thousands of years….yet not one O.T. writer mentions this book, or mentions any writings from Enoch to be in existence. However Enoch, who lived close to 6,000 years ago, his writings would pre-date Moses’ Torah and Job’s book by possibly 2000-3000 years, and would have been close to 1,000 years old when Noah carried it on the Ark to preserve it from the Great Flood.

In general, among Christian denominations, the New Testament canon is an agreed-upon list of 27 books, although book order can vary. The book order is the same in the Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant tradition. The Slavonic, Armenian and Ethiopian traditions have different New Testament book orders. I’m not saying the question of what books should be considered canon in the Old Testament are not worth discussion; or that they are less important. But I do want to point out to Christians that we all agree on the New Testament books. God Bless…

At the very least it should be 67 books, as with a careful reading of Enoch, you will find that more people than Jude quoted from it. Beware of the wolves. They can look 99.9% correct, yet they may just exist to reinforce one small lie. But a little leaven….

Beware of men whose boast is in their achievements and who continually remind you of their pedigree. Beware of men who speak of “things too wonderful”. Look at who their friends are. Look at who they endorse and who endorses them. But most of all, consecrate yourself, read your bibles day and night, pray for wisdom and understanding, and The God of Truth will show you the wolves. Remember, Jesus told us they they would look like sheep, that they would look like us.

When you look at he King James Bible, or the Douay Rheims Bible, or the Jewish Tanakh: the creation account in Genesis is in overall agreement. I just wanted to share a comment on the creation account of Genesis that I wrote and would like your comments. Creation is from God, and revealed by God. In the beginning God created heaven, and earth. The heaven is the realm of the pure spiritual creatures that God created, and not space. The earth is not a planet revolving in a solar system; but the unique and immoveable place that God formed and placed man. God did not create other worlds. Just earth. God did not create or make a universe having billions of galaxies, containing billions of suns with billions of solar systems having planets: or multi-verse universes. God did make two great lights; the greater light to rule the day; and the lesser light to rule the night; and the stars. For which the stars extend to the heights of the firmament under the Heaven. God made only one greater light that we call the sun, and only one lesser light that we call the moon. And God set them in the firmament: And all of the lights he made shine only on the earth.
God did allow and made a firmament, or the whole space between the earth and the Heaven: For which the Heaven is the realm of the pure spiritual creatures that God created and made. Satan and all the spiritual creatures that rejected God no longer have Heaven: And therefore have set themselves subject to death and eternal punishment. God created and made Adam and the woman perfect. Adam enjoyed all things of God to be perfect. Adam and the whole earth did not evolve or revolve. Adam and the whole earth were not subject to decay or death: Rather given perfection and everlasting life. Gods revelation of creation was not subject to wait for man and modern science to tell him how things are. But man and modern science is subject to Gods revelation to determine what they will tell us. Jesus says: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. Jesus also tells us that Satan the devil that old serpent was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth; because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. I believe our Lord with all my mind and soul and pray to the Holy Spirit to do his will…

(Hail Mary “mother of God” pray for us sinners).. This is part of the rosary prayer of devoted Catholics.

Is mary the mother of God! If ye be a Trinitarian she surely is so! For according to the Doctrine (trinity) Jesus is God the son..However; according to the New Testament Jesus is the (((Son of God))) Rev2:18
Check any concordance for (god the son) You will not find it.

Question, Which according to the Apostles is He… Is He ‘god the son’ or ‘ the Son of God’ ?
Nowhere in the NT is Jesus referred as ‘God the son’ how subtle is the Enemy of truth, how he changes the word as in the garden!..
It is Mystery Babylon that tampers with truth in the most seductive way to promulgate her adulterous doctrines.
“Come out of her My people” Thus cries the Spirit of Elijah in these Last days.

When Catholics or Eastern Orthodox direct prayer to Mary or to the saints, they are using them as intercessors to Jesus. Technically speaking, it’s not worship because neither Catholics nor Orthodox consider Mary or the saints to be divine. Yes, viewing Mary and the saints as unique intercessors contradicts the Biblical concept of the term and obscures Christ’s un-equalled role as the Heavenly High Priest. My point is that something doesn’t have to be idolatrous to be spiritually sabotaging or contradictory to Biblical principles or practice. It’s not to condone or defend the practice in question.

I agree with you that the Trinitarianism of catholicism is not the biblical revelation of God.

I have thoroughly like yourself questioned it. mainly because I could never understand it, and true Faith is most certainly based upon Knowledge revealed by The Holy Spirit. it is not learned in the schools of men.

“The Lord God of Israel is one” Deut6:4 He is the same God who Said/spoke In the Gen1 account of creation. This is also what the scripture you share confirms… It was the same Word spoken that became Flesh.. I shared on this to some extent on a post some two weeks ago on this site.

Jesus said it Mk12:29

Apostle Paul said it Gal3:20

It is assumed that because one rejects this ‘Babylonian Mystery doctrine’ That one denies the Deity of Christ and that of the holy Spirit. Nothing can be further from the truth.
