Hell

 

 

Over 2 thousand years ago Jerusalem set up a hill. There was an area that was on the southern side of the city that was used  to dispose of the cities filth and garage. It was all thrown into this area.

This area was first a burial site from as early as the seventh until the fifth century BCE. It was also an area where children were sacrificed and bodies of executed criminals where dumped, and that is why a fire was kept constantly burning there.

It was a real place. It was in a valley called Hinnon. The Hebrew name Hinnom when translated in to Greek is gehenna, from which the word and concept of HELL originated.

Hinnon…HELL…the city dump eventually became known as a place where the 2nd God sent sinners for everlasting punishment and as time went on HELL became known as the place for sinners.

Todays concept of ‘hell’ began as something man created and then over the centuries, ‘hell’ became associated with God. God really had nothing to do with any ‘hell’ place.  Did you know that?

Hell as it became known was known as a place “down there” where the wicked would eventually be cast into the flames for ever lasing punishment.

The threat of being cast into ‘ hell’ was used by theWooden_church  leaders to keep the people in fear so they would better be able to control the masses.

You can even image a parent saying to the children, ‘if you are not good you will be sent to hell.‘ Hell, now as then, was never a real place… other than a DUMP.

Mankind is so, so easy to be led by those in charge that he agreed that a city dump could be re defined as a place for sinners. A place in the earth that God sends those who do not follow the

MAN MADE RULES.

Think about that. You have been taught that HELL is a burning place Fire_2     ‘down there.’  Well yes… ‘hell’ WAS a place ‘down there’,  but it was only a  DUMP.  A DUMP.   Hell was NEVER something other. Hell was and is NOT  a place of everlasting punishment from an All Loving God.

It’s almost comical how man will buy into anything that his religion tells him…because he thinks the religious leaders know more. Even though they can not PROVE there is a HELL, they teach it.

So did God create hell for sinners?  NO. There was only a city dump….created by MAN.

Did you know this about  HELL?

Who Is ‘HE’

bible-god-quotes-427

Do you have any idea what that means?  Maybe you try to understand but finally give up because its too hard to understand.

Who, what do you think Jesus was talking about when he told you that there is a ‘HE’ within you? Do you know what  Jesus meant?

And do you know where, ‘within’ you, to find this ‘HE?’

If this ‘HE’ is ‘greater’ than all the ‘he’s’ in the world, how do you make ‘contact‘ with IT?

How do you get the ’HE’ to help you, because what good is some ‘HE’ in you, if you  can’t ‘contact’ IT when you need help?

So who is this ‘HE‘? Think as hard as you can and see if you can come up with who, what and where is the ‘HE’ within you. Take your time. Search everywhere ‘within’ you. Can you can find some ‘HE’ within you?

If you don’t know then I suggest you do some personal investigating.graphics-detective-504217

Why? Well because you want to know the different meanings  for the words, that way you can  decide which meanings make sense to you.

For instance, knowing that one of the original meanings for ‘greater’ is, ‘to come in contact with,’  then you have a starting point. Did you know that was one meaning for ‘greater?  If not, how many other words do you not  know about?

This new information gives you hope that maybe you can find your inner ‘He.‘ And you would know that maybe there is a way tocome in contact with’ your inner ‘He.’  Knowing that, might push you on in your investigating.

Using the meaning, ‘come in contact with’    gives you a beginning for your understanding of what Jesus may have meant.  

You have to make ‘contact with your ‘HE’, if ’HE’ is to do the ‘greater’ works. So…how do you make contact with your ‘HE’?

 You can’t. You can’t  because there is no ‘HE’ in you.  The only thing you can find in you is a

SPIRIT

0c359f1211f7777bc9beb0592e4b9494

The only way to contact the ‘HE’ that is IN you…is through the Spirit within you.  In  silence you come face to face with your  HE . your personal inner intelligent life force, know as SPIRIT.

Try it…you may be surprised.

The point here is…. why not try to understand what your are reading, when you read passages like…

Greater is HE that is in you than he that is in the world, ‘

  or any Bible passage…instead of just reading passages and having no idea what they could mean?

  You really do have to UNDERSTAND what you are reading

BECAUSE

9e94875a1e8e06634b274ce638c15039

You do not get your ‘understanding from anyone or anything except your inner Spirit.

Now get this…Did you know a meaning for the word ‘spirit’ is, your

 ‘inner intelligent life force.’

Now that makes sense. Your ‘HE’ is your

 ‘inner intelligent life force, known as a

SPIRIT

 

Hey God, Where Are You…. might answer a few questions.

In The Image and Likeness

Picture-143-271x300“And God said, Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him…”

Thinking, I wondered what that meant. What did it really mean, I was made in the ‘image and likeness of God. I’m sure I don’t look like Him. So could there be a meaning that would make more sense….to me?

Since I do not necessarily believe all that the world teaches us,  that is why I do my own investigation  into meanings for words. Then I choose the meanings that make sense to me. So here goes.

If I am the ‘image and likeness,’ what does that mean to me? First I need to know what what the word ‘image’  and ‘likeness’ means.

So I will  dedective15 Using my dictionary, I find   the the word ‘image’ has many meanings. Image means, ‘artificial representation that looks like a person. ’ Well, that’s interesting.

Artificial is a ‘copy,’ What are we acopy’ of? Acopy means the ‘image in our mind. Is that what we really are, copies of the ‘images in our mind?

Artificial means, ‘deception‘ and deception is an, ‘optical illusion.’ Are we only ‘optical illusions? Are we as a person, nothing more than an ‘optical illusion?

Okay…that was weird. Let’s keep going and see what else we can find.

Next is ‘representations.’ So if we are ‘representations,’ what are we a representation of? A ‘representation’ is, ‘ an IMAGE, brought clearly to mind.’

Image is, ‘mental‘ andmental‘ means, ‘occurring only in the mind.’genesis_lAre we an ‘image occurring only in our minds?’Could you or I, as an ‘image’ be nothing more than a copy of our thoughts… brought clearly to our mind?

Image is a, ’mental representation.’ Mental, ‘ existing in the mind only.‘ Is that where we exist? In our minds?  Well if you think about it….YES, that is where we exist. If we didn’t have our mind, our thoughts, we would not exist.

Image is an ‘idea.’ An ‘idea’ is a ‘thought.’ Is that what we really are? A ‘thought?  It sure appears that way...if we are the ‘image.’

Image is an, ‘idea‘ and an ‘idea’ is a ‘conception existing in the mind.’ And a ‘conception’ means the ‘origin or beginning.’ THE ORIGIN OF BEING?  The Bible tell us we are ‘images.’


Lets now  the word’ likeness.’  Likeness means a ‘semblance’ and a ‘semblance’ is an, ‘unreal appearance.’Think about that… are you only an unreal appearance?

Semblance  is also an,outward appearance, without any inner substance or reality.’ Okay, without substance or reality….what are we?  Nothing but an ‘image’ in our mind?

Likeness is an ‘assumed appearance.’ Appearance means, ‘coming into view.’ And  appearance’ means an, ‘outward show.’ That tells that we are really the ‘outward showing’ of our thoughts.  Yeah, I know…but why not????

Okay...about those meanings, this is what it seems to be saying…As Gods image, we as the appearance are just an ‘artificial representation that only looks like a person? But in reality we are Gods Thoughts.

We are Gods thoughts coming into view. We can only exist as part of Gods thinking. Maybe that’s what Jesus meant when he said, ‘I and my Father/God are one.’ That would make sense if we are Gods thoughts. And we only THINK we are real.

Did Jesus know this when he  said, ‘All that the Father/ God has, you have.’ If we do exist as Gods thoughts, then yes, we would have all that is in Gods thinking.  Makes sense to me.

99737981_66336ffb5a‘In the beginning God made us in his Image and his Likeness and if so, then we began and are existing as images, thoughts,  in Gods mind.

Very weird, I know. And I’m going to have to give this a lot more thought.

Small ‘g’ god

Who, What is God? Ho do know who or what your God is?  What proof do you personally have of God? Why do you believe what you do about your God? Isn’t it what you have been taught…by others? Others who were taught by their ‘fathers?

If your God is not making Itself known to you personally, maybe its time for you to do you own graphics-detective-504217to see what you can find out about God so God can make Itself known to you, from Itself.

Using the dictionary, you find two definitions for God.  The first is with a small ‘g.’ This god is defined as a ‘male deity.’ The god of the ‘fathers’ was a male god and he had all the characteristics of man. Like man, this god used fear,punishment or reward to control his creation.

This god is defined as ‘a man, godlike,’ which accounts for some who believe they are god like. This god with a small ‘g’ has been handed down to though the centuries and is the god modern man worships.

The god with a small ’g’ is a changeable god, and sometimes a god who appears as an angry god angry at tom bradyuncaring god. He is a god that does not protect his creation at all times, and from the very beginning this god has played favorites. Some of his creation he created good, healthy, happy and successful, while others he created evil, sick and poor.

It was the ancient ‘fathers’ who were vain, and it was they who decided what man and god were to be.  And then they worshiped both. Today we too worship that handed down, unknown god.’

    You have been taught to believe in this god who will punish you and send you to hell if you sin.

How could a all Good loving God ever send It’s creation to  hell suffer in hell?

Most religions/people  believed  the god with a small ‘g’, is the real god. This god that has been handed to you is a god created by the ancient ‘fathers.’ This god is NOT the real GOD.

It was the fathers of the distant past that Paul believed “... became vain in their imaginations….. and they became fools, and they changed God…,” into an image made like themselves, “….and began to worshiped the creature, (a human being) more than the creator.”

At least that’s what I believe. Now I will go  and see if I can find the REAL GOD.

Who is God?

Bible Giants

There were Giants in the earth in those days.”

Found in the Bible you are told stories regarding the Anakim and their “degenerated” offspring called the children of Anakh. ANAKIMS were the people of ANAK , an ancestor of the Anakim, a tribe of Giants.

Throughout the  Bible you find many stories of Giants. So if you believe the Bible, then you believe in Giants.

 ‘And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.’

  ‘Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, the people are greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there’.

  ‘For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man’. This bed is 6 feet wide, 14 feet long and King Og’s height is estimated at least 12 feet.

  A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak.”

Joshua 14; Judges i. 20; and Numbers 33 – The Hebrew spies said they were mere grass-hoppers in comparison with these giants’

Throughout the Bible you find Giants. So if you believe the Bible, then you believe in Giants. Think about that.

 

Were there Giants in the ancient times? Well if you believe the Bible, then you believe in Giant

Either you believe your  or you don’t.

If you don’t believe the Bible, your proof is found in ancient remains of Giants, remains found literally all over the world.

Lucifier

File:Lucifer3.jpg

The name Lucifer does not come from the Hebrew or even from the Greek translation but from the fourth century AD Latin translation of the verse.

It was in 382 Pope Damascus had St. Jerome, a scholar do a  revision of the Latin versions of the Bible texts. His translation. It is believed to be based on the Hebrew text and it is his interpretation that you read. Not yours, his.

 

And it is believed the scholars that were found to translate the King James  Bible into current English did not use the original Hebrew texts. They instead used versions translated  by St. Jerome  way back in the fourth century. So Lucifer was most likely composed of a lot of what a scholar held as a truth,based on what he had been taught.

The first people who translated the Bible into English assumed the name Lucifer applied to Satan.  When  translating Isaiah 14:12 into English, they decided they would “translate” the word “Heylel, the original  Latin name “Lucifer.” To them it just made more sense. TO THEM.  This word is also found only one time in the Bible.

The word Lucifer is taken from the Latin Vulgate, meaning “the morning star, the planet Venus.’  In Greek Lucifer means,  ‘bringer of dawn.’  

Only in Isaiah 14:4-22, is Lucifer mentioned and it is referring to the King of Babylon after his defeat by the Persians. It seems those who translated words, misunderstood and thought Lucifer was really Satan. He was not. Again, many scholars believe  Lucifer was the king of Babylon.

We are told this about Lucifer,  “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

graphics-detective-504217   Investing a little we find Lucifer is a Latin word meaning “light-bearer.’  Light means, ‘considered to be an authority or leader, someone who descends,’  as from a vehicle…from the sky? A Bearer, is the holder of rank or office and a person who shows great ability. In this case, it could mean Lucifer was a King  and not an angel.

The name Lucifer does not appear in the original text of Isaiah, the only place the name Lucifer is ever mentioned in the Bible. Don’t you think that’s odd? Why would the name Lucifer appear only one time in the ancient writings? Why, if he was to become such an important character in the world?  Maybe Lucifer was NOT a Fallen Angel.

Remember, you only know what you have been taught and then accepted as fact. Do you think the Devil, Satan and Lucifer are one and the same? If so, based on what FACTS?

Satan

File:GustaveDoreParadiseLostSatanProfile.jpgThe original Hebrew  word Satan means  to, ‘ accuse and oppose.’ 

According to Job, Satan was an angel, a man, a soldier of God and was a member of the divine council of Gods inner circle of angels (soldiers). Satan was probably God’s prosecuting attorney,  and his job was to accuse , oppose and show  evidence against the defendant. In most cases when Satan is mentioned, it leads you believe his job was to act like what we now call a Prosecuting Attorney, or District Attorney

Could be, because in Judaism, Satan is a term used since its earliest biblical contexts, to refer to a human opponent. If you will read everything about Gods Angels you will clearly see that they were MEN. MEN.

3b  tells you in Job 1:6-7  that God talks with Satan.  It seems strange that God could talk to Satan and Satan was able to talk to God just like any soldier talking to his Commander.

1Chronicles 21:1  God wanted Satan  to have  David make a census of the people. Doesn’t that sound like Satan had a job and was just a MAN or a Soldier  doing his job, as directed by his boss…God. The Commander?

John has a lot to say about how Satan  was a deceiver.   Deceive also means to be unfaithful. Satan must have been unfaithful to his Commander, God, so God had his Angels or his  Soldiers  fight against Satan and his followers of angels (soldiers)  Satan lost and  was thrown down to earth. He was cast out.  And all his angels/soldiers who followed him. (Rev. 12: 9)

As for Satan being cast out, what does it mean? Must be time to use the     to see what  cast out means.  Well, it means sent. So Satan was sent out of heaven.

Luke 10:18 said, “ I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Using original  meanings for works you get a different picture. The word lightning also means, speed of movement.

The word fall also means, to descend. So then Satan didn’t necessarily fall like lightning from heaven, he descended like a rocket taking off. Was Satan in  his flying machine.which would move like lightning?

Luke 13:16, tells us  that Satan had bound a woman for eighteen long years. Bound is to ‘confine.’  Satan, like other Angels/Soldiers found a woman of the earth  that he liked and he kept or confined her as his own. It seems likely since we know Angels (soldiers) liked the women of earth.

Genesis,  ‘the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and they took them as wife’s.’“  Weird since the angels are not suppose to be human. But a human man is what they all sound like when you read about them with the idea of men. Nope, the ancient Angels are  just like any MAN.  They fight wars, they eat and sleep and have sex. Again how can anyone not get this.

At one point Satan was doing his best to tempt Jesus to join him but Jesus turned his back on the man, the man or   Soldier, known as Satan. Jesus said, Get thee hence, Satan:’  It was like two men talking and one Jesus turned his back on the man or soldier that he called by name.

  Read the Bible and     investigate words back their original meanings and you will get a whole new take on things. It is quite interesting what you find when you do your own research into who and what was Satan.
