Posted on June 3, by Jerry Starling I received the following question from our church website. Is it because GOD is punishing him? To understand just why this was necessary and how, even though they became slaves in Egypt, it was protection for them we need to look at some things in the Bible as well as some things in Egyptian history. For one example of this, read Genesis Here is the story of how one of the princes of Canaan, Hamor who was the son of Shechem of the city by that name, became attracted to the daughter of Jacob. To tell the story briefly, he raped her, but then wanted to make her his wife. When Shechem came to Jacob and his sons to ask for the girl, they said: Make marriages with us.

And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies.
South Moluccan Shaman exorcising evil spirits occupying children, Buru , Indonesia. Most shamans have dreams or visions that convey certain messages. The shaman may have or acquire many spirit guides , who often guide and direct the shaman in their travels in the spirit world. These spirit guides are always present within the shaman, although others encounter them only when the shaman is in a trance. The spirit guide energizes the shaman, enabling them to enter the spiritual dimension.
The shaman heals within the spiritual dimension by returning ‘lost’ parts of the human soul from wherever they have gone. The shaman also cleanses excess negative energies, which confuse or pollute the soul. Shamans act as mediators in their culture.

Is the Seventh Day Adventist church a cult? This is a hard question to answer but I will say this; there is a very real segment of that church that is very destructive and oppressive. Please note, this article will merely discusses church culture and will not debate the theological merits of the teachings.

Each century has found the church fearing the cataclysms of its own time as the last to come. Yet, inexorably, each passing century has moved the world nearer the final end. This sense of imminence is God’s device to keep believers expectant and full of hope in the midst of the world’s darkness. Evil becomes more subtle in our own day, and the difference between truth and error more difficult to detect.
The raucous voices of the age pour forth deceitful lies and society becomes permeated with false concepts widely viewed as truth. We too need to gather together to encourage each other [Heb We are a privileged people, privileged to draw near to the living God; privileged to speak out concerning our flaming hope; and privileged to stir one another up to love and good works. Henry has well said,"Many Christians now live among neighbors who, swept by tides of immorality, fear herpes more than they fear Hades, and some even think God is a lofty synonym for gobbledygook” Henry ; Every age of Christians has had to live in such a world, and today’s Christians are no exception!

Zionism refers to the political movement that supports the reestablishment of the Jewish state in the land of Israel. According to sources inside the Palestinian Authority, Nusseibeh has come under some PA pressure for writing in a recent study that Jews historically revered the Temple Mount before the time of Muhammad and Islam.
The PA sources denied any security threats against Nusseibeh but conceded that PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ office had asked the professor to issue a clarification acknowledging the Palestinian line denying Jewish ties to the Mount. The sources indicated that if Nusseibeh did not issue a clarification his position as Al-Quds’ president could be in jeopardy.

The February edition of One Accord is now online. Registration for all other festival sites will not open until April 1st – however, owing to the level of interest for this site being well above the capacity of the meeting room, Jim Franks announced last month that registration for Cortona will open on February 11th at 10am CST — and is expected to close on the same day. The successful applications will be notified on February 13th. Those who have not previously registered for a festival or camp site in the USA which of course is almost everybody in Europe must open an account at portal.
COGWA’s only congregations in Europe are in south-east England, Paris, Liege and Geneva – so those brethren in Europe living too far away to attend Sabbath meetings in these locations will be barred from registering for Cortona. For those having a strong preference for Italy, an annual Festival of Tabernacles is held in Sabaudia, near Rome. A four-day pre-festival cultural tour of Tuscany Florence, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano is being offered to brethren who can attend the Day of Atonement at the festival site.

Jews Suck Baby Penises
I ask for forgiveness here. Jesus said in Matthew 5: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Here again in the clearest words possible Jesus tells us that He did not come to abolish the law but that the law will be in effect for ever.
Shamanism is a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to perceive and interact with what they believe to be a spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world.. A shaman (/ ˈ ʃ ɑː m ə n / SHAH-men, / ˈ ʃ æ m ə n / or / ˈ ʃ eɪ m ə n /) is someone who is regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world.
Who is our example? What did Jesus do? I don’t believe that Jesus came to get rid of the law, He came to show us it’s true purpose. The true purpose of the law is to teach us how to truly love God and our fellow man. I just believe that if God had decided to remove just one, and only one commandment from His"Law of Love”, He would have said so Himself, or He would have had a prophet tell us.
The only verse that affords any kind of proof that it doesn’t matter any more is the verse that says"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbaths” Col 2: If we can choose whatever day WE want, then it is showing more love toward ourselves than God. It is a commandment in the"love God” category after all, and it is in God’s law, which made breaking it a sin against God at some point.
I just think that if one law was done away with at the cross, then the whole law had to be. It doesn’t make sense to just pick one out and call it legalism.

Etymology[ edit ] The earliest known depiction of a Siberian shaman, by the Dutch Nicolaes Witsen , 17th century. Witsen called him a “priest of the Devil” and drew clawed feet for the supposed demonic qualities. It is found in the memoirs of the exiled Russian churchman Avvakum. Ethnolinguist Juha Janhunen regards it as an “anachronism” and an “impossibility” that is nothing more than a “far-fetched etymology.
Seems the jews like to claim that this practice is to help the healing of the wound from circumcision. However, circumcision is a barbaric practice that has people lopping off the heads of their baby’s penises all over the world for no reason.
Kings of Israel – They count their reigns from the first of Nisan , such that even if a King began his reign at the end of Adar , once Nisan began, it would be considered as the second year of his reign. Pilgrim Festivals – The festival which occurs in Nisan , namely Pesach , is considered the first of the three pilgrimage festivals: Pesach , Shavuot , and Succoth. This period is used to complete an oath. Months – Nisan is considered the first of the months.
The Torah refers to other months as second, third , …, twelfth with reference to Nisan. Once that date has arrived, the time for “Leaping” has “Leapt”. Donation of Shekalim  – communal sacrifices brought from this day forward are paid from the Shekalim collected in the current year; last year’s Shekalim are no longer used for this purpose. Thus we can see that the Septennial cycle with its two Triennial cycles , mirrors the two major new years of our calendar.
A second allusion to the Septennial cycle found in the calendar is seen in the bi-modality of the months. So, just as Pesach  is n days in length in Nisan , so too is Succoth seven days in length in Tishri. I have written extensively on the bi-modal aspects of the calendar in my study titled:
