Hi everyone. I would like to first post for people some verses from the last Bible book called the Book of  Revelations:

Revelation:  12:16He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
 
In the above it says that it’s the number of the beast is the number of man. Think about it, what does that mean?

The above is happening now. Think about it: so called halloween, horror movies, nuclear weapons, pornography, homosexual marriages, and I am sure you can ad to the list. Which you can say is a pretty good indication that the number might be being given out. Other ways you can tell is by looking into your life and read the book of Revelations and try and see if you can recognise like I said in your own life if the 666 is being given out at the moment. I say again it is happening now.

I urge you people to accept Jesus Christ as a God’s Only Begotten Son who was sent into the world to die for our sins.

I pray to Our Heavenly Father that all people who read the above come to accept His One and Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour in Jesus Christ’s Name Amen.

Thanks

Following is a copy from the other section of this forum posted by me:

I’ll post some verses from the Bible that are good to know:

 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

14:6: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

2 Timothy 3:16: All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness

1:7: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

book of Exodus 20: Exodus 20:1-20

20Then God spoke all these words: 2I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; 3you shall have no other gods before me. 4You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, 6but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments. 7You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquit anyone who misuses his name.

Thanks

I have copied the following post from the other section of this forum, also written by me and I am going to paste it here:

Ok the following is a copy:

Hi everyone. I have been on these forum in the past and also on many other forums of different so called religions and different so called spiritual teachings. I have studied the quran same as you people do. So I sort of knew the quran pretty well and I now it know, probably not as well as I knew it in the past, but I do know it.

Anyway, in the quran it’s written the following:

 Say: ‘If all mankind and the jinn would come together to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce its like even though they exerted all their strength in aiding one another.’ } The Quran 17:88

The above verse is not true. Read the Bible for yourself, both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Read the full book of Job or let’s say the books of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John and then read the quran and it will hopefully become obvious that the quran is nowhere as well written as the bible. Some say quran is so well written it’s a miracle, that’s not true, Bible is written so well it’s a miracle.

I am not trying to offend any of you people, I am just trying to relate to you you what I know to be the Truth about Our Heavenly Father and His Only Beggoten Son Jesus Christ Our Lord And Saviour.

Thanks

Peace Ervin,

I'm glad that you're out from your schizophrenic situation and you're experiencing your life in much better situation now.
When I'm reading on how you manage to get out of such situation I can say that it was the best method, you ask to the infinite creator and you then receive. Because verily you do have direct connection to your creator.

Tolle's explanation is the technical method on how you can widen your highway to your own infinite creator, acceptance and stillness. By stillness here he meant the stillness of your mind, more specifically stillness of your own egoistical mind. By silencing your own thought you will clear the highway from unnecessary traffic and you will be able to download (and upload) more.

But now I'm surprised how you then fell again to the 'trap' put forth by your own egoistical mind.
You again put something on the pedestal, in your latest example, it's Bible and Jesus.

Putting something on the pedestal is driven by pride, driven by the need to be superior, to be the best, to be among the 'righteous', to be among those 'who are saved', 'those who walked the straight path', 'those who are chosen' and many other label that people came up with to separate themselves with the inferior, with other than their own selves.

I call it as a 'trap' because when you put something on the pedestal and thus superior / best, it will drive the need to inferiorize other in order to justify it's superiority.

What;s being put on the pedestal can be many things, ranging from Football team, Nationality, Religion, Books, Dead / Past Figures, Food, Mobile Phone Brand, Car Brand, Color and millions of other things.

It is however understandable, as pride produce a (false) sense of security, strength and superiority. It tastes 'good' and '(temporarily) satisfying' and can be quite addictive. It's those 'good' feelings that anyone get when you won a race, won an award, receive promotion, watching your favorite football team won, watching your nationality being praised admired and adored, receiving compliment about anything that you've identified yourself with, your looks, your religion, your holy books, your tradition etc...

But the thing is, you will never feel enough, you will just want more and more, just like crack and drugs, it has certain addictive attributes to it.

An attachment to certain things, especially pride, can be a root cause of your sufferings.
Acceptance of everything 'as it is' it is actually a mean to liberation, purification and unification (with our "Heavenly Father")

And if you're diligent, you can also find the above message buried somewhere within the sentences of a bundle called Bible.

The act of putting things to a pedestal is of course quite common, as can be seen by even the replies on this thread. They're actually mirroring your action, the only difference is they put different things than you on their own pedestal. Thus to justify that they need to inferiorize the things which you've put on your pedestal.

Salam

Peace and hi Jafar. I am glad that you are glad that I am out of a difficult situation.  I just wanted to say that I am on medication and that I am currently in the process of coming of a very strong and dangerous drug( medication) called clozapine.l( you can google I think just about any medication)  I am fine however there are always changes that take place when that’s in the process. Clozapine is one of the strongest sedatives and I am getting of it and replacing it with one of the medications that’s not sedating at all, which is really good. A lot has happened since that OP recovery. I have been put back on meds and etc...

You are probably right in that I have put it on the pedestal, I thought I was doing the right thing. I have a few things to do right now, but soon later on I’ll right some more on this thread.

Thanks

Hi everyone, just to let you all know that I have come to believe in God Yahweh and His Son Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. It’s a bit of a story as to how I came to it. I will just urge you all to take good look at the Bible for instance.
The Bible is the best written book there is and that  is one of my reasons for accepting God Yahweh and His Son Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Compare the Bible to other books.

Thanks

Peace and thanks everyone.

To those who might give answers as to the actual words meaning that I asked(especially the one in number 8 post), please can you keep it simple and as brief as possible? Otherwise I am going to have to get familiar with English grammar. Grammar or not grammar, when you go into technicalities please try and keep it brief!

As to those not familiar with the monotheist group Quran or the natural republic, you can download it by just googling:

Monotheist group Quran PDF. And

The natural republic PDF. Which is also from the monotheist group.



Thanks

Peace.

Thanks Layth, Mazhar and the rest.

I haven’t fully read all of the answers, but I do plan to. I sort of get the gist.

Ok,  the following is another example where it seems way to different between Monotheist group and others. The following:


[2:49]   And recall that We delivered you from the people of Pharaoh. They inflicted on you terrible persecution, killing your sons and sparing your women. Therein was a tremendous trial from your Lord.

The above says: “sparing your women”.

While the Monotheist group says” raping your women”.

Now,  can you please explain  to me how does one meaning of the word means  “sparing”in Arabic and the other “raping”?

By the way, I am not sceptical about the existence of God( I know God exists, atheism for me is a strong delusion for instance). I just am looking for a accurate revelation from Him/God.

Also, I must say that some Monotheist group translations in the Quran ( and explained by the natural republic) make much more sense than the traditional. Just thought I say this so that you know I am not being biased.

Thanks

Peace Mazhar and thanks.

I had a look at that link and they all say in Fatiha ...Merciful Compassionate, or some other word that means those two. Now, the monotheist group interpretation says Almighty Merciful. How can Compassionate also mean Almighty? Or how come pretty much all of them interpret one way and the monotheist group interprets differently? And it’s not only this word? There are other places where the interpretation just doesn’t make sense to me.
