Archbishop of Punjab, Pakistan agrees with Archbishop of Canterbury

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

________________________________________________________________

His Excellency continues, “And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realizing that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.” (Look at the date of this article. It appears on the surface to be almost a prophecy of what the Syrians are experiencing now. Various human societies obviously are not as interested in preserving the Original Christian History as they pretend.)

Photojournalist Giulio Paletta, who specialises in small Christian groups, has been to Tur Abdin in south-east Turkey to record the life of the Syrian Christians.

The little ancient Christian community in the mountains has been immune from Roman influence but suffered in recent upheavals which saw death or exile from beginning of the 19th century to the 1990s. The Syrian Orthodox minority now finds itself struggling with little support from the Turkish authorities.

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

“And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realising that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.”

Speaking of the community’s present struggle with poverty and harassment, Dr Williams said that he wanted to express solidarity with them and pray for them.

“Turkey has an honourable tradition of tolerating and protecting religious minorities and it would be a tragedy if the next generation were to see that tradition becoming any weaker.”

The Bishop of Woolwich read out a message from the Bishop of Tur Abdin who said that it was a great comfort to have support from the British ecumenical Tur Abdin Focus Group which is staging the exhibition.

A second message was received from the Patriarch of Antioch who visited Lambeth Palace last year. The Patriarch’s representative Bishop Polycarpos also spoke.

Canon Bruce Saunders, welcoming the Archbishop, said: “Southwark Cathedral is a parish church rooted in this local community, we are the mother church of the diocese but from time to time we also behave like an English cathedral should with a national profile doing something which takes our interest beyond our own boundaries.”

Among guests at the opening were the Syrian Ambassador, diplomatic representatives from the Netherlands and Turkey, Metropolitan Seraphim of Glastonbury, the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, Fr Stephen Griffith who is both Anglican Chaplain in Syria and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Apocrisiarius to the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch and the Archdeacon of Southwark.

For the Archbishop it was his second visit to Southwark in 6 days; last week he opened a new nurture room at Cathedral School in Redcross Way.

The Tur Abdin exhibition is at Southwark Cathedral until Monday 18 October.

Do you think we have no cause to be concerned?

As Russian interests gradually took control of Uranium One millions of dollars were donated to the Clinton Foundation between 2009 and 2013 from individuals directly connected to the deal including the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Telfer. Although Mrs Clinton had an agreement with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors to the Clinton Foundation, the contributions from the Chairman of Uranium One were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons.

Among the agencies that eventually signed off the deal was the State Department, then headed by Secretary Clinton. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) comprises, among others, the secretaries of the Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce and Energy.

What the Clinton campaign spokesman failed to disclose, however, was the fact that a few days before sending his rebuttal to the New York Times, Jose Fernandez wrote on the evening of the 17 April 2015 to John Podesta following a phone call from Mr Podesta (Email ID 2053): “John, It was good to talk to you this afternoon, and I appreciate your taking the time to call. As I mentioned, I would like to do all I can to support Secretary Clinton, and would welcome your advice and help in steering me to the right persons in the campaign”.

Five days after this email (22 April 2015), Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon wrote a memo to the New York Times, declaring that “Jose Fernandez has personally attested that ‘Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter’,” but Fallon failed to mention that Fernandez was hardly a neutral witness in this case, considering that he had agreed with John Podesta to play a role in the Clinton campaign.

The emails show that the contacts between John Podesta and Jose Fernandez go back to the time of internal Clinton campaign concern about the then-forthcoming book and movie “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer on the financial dealings of the Clinton Foundation.

In an email dated 29 March 2015 (Email ID 2059), Jose Fernandez writes to Podesta: “Hi John, I trust you are getting a brief rest after a job well done. Thanks no doubt to your recommendation I have joined the CAP [Center for American Progress] board of trustees, which I’m finding extremely rewarding.”

Eashoa Msheekha (Jesus the Messiah) spoke Aramaic

Language has evolved and today something written in modern English is very different from  old English. Likewise, The Ancient Aramaic Church of the East, which started in the lifetime of the Antioch Church Ministry. Leaders in that Church consisted of:
Prophets
Teachers

Barnabas
Simon
Simon Neiger
Lucius from the town of Cyrene
Manael son of Herod,
the Tetrach’s governess
Saul
 2. And as they fasted and besought Allaha, the Holy Spirit told them, “Choose for me Saul and Barnabas to do that for which I have called them.”
3. And after they fasted and prayed, they consecrated over them the hand, and they sent them off.

According to historians it was Antioch, Syria, that used  ‘The Old Tongue,’ I call it Ancient Aramaic. It is still used in the liturgy of the Eastern Churches. It is sung during Mass. There are some clergy that know how to read it. It comes in many dialects of the Middle East and Africa, of the Eastern Churches, and of the Orthodox churches of some Eastern European countries. Nobody speaks this language anymore — not the ancient form of it. Those who claim to speak Aramaic are only speaking modern derivatives of the language, just as nobody speaks Old English, or even Middle English anymore. Nobody speaks Koine Greek, Old Norse, or Old Syriac_Sertâ_book_scriptGerman, and so on. These languages have all evolved. And so today one also finds Hebrew and Aramaic spoken by millions of people in the Middle East, but these are modern versions of the language. The roots of many words are the same, however, and the old form can be learned. This I have done, so I can read the Scriptures and translate them faithfully. Actually, the Scriptures have preserved the Ancient Aramaic language, and the language has preserved the Scriptures. Ancient Aramaic is the first language spoken by human beings. The Scriptures were preserved only in this language. It is the language that Eashoa Msheekha (Jesus the Messiah) spoke.

THE FIRST CIVILIZATION

Mesopotamia is the land between the two rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates, Bet Nahrein in the Ashurai language. This is the land where writing and numbers were invented six thousand years ago. It’s where the Bible tells us God created the first man and the first woman and placed them in the Garden of Eden, or Paradise. Mesopotamia is the Greek name for this land. Alexander the Great died in Babylon three centuries before the time of Jesus. Alexander’s empire crumbled after his death. The land of Mesopotamia became the battleground for many nations. The Arabs conquered Mesopotamia in the 7th Century AD, and they’ve occupied this Biblical land ever since. Although most of the original inhabitants of Mesopotamia have long migrated to other countries, there is a remnant of Ashurai and Chaldeans left in Mesopotamia, which has been renamed Iraq since the 1930s. Three thousand years ago, the Ashurai lands were in North Mesopotamia and the Chaldean lands were in South Mesopotamia. Nineveh in the North battled Babylon in the South for four thousand years, until there were no more men left to fight. Today, that seems mind boggling, but the sculptures depicting those battles and the records of those kings that ruled in the early millennia are still in the world museums. The war between the North and South has been going on for ten thousand years.

Every empire or super power experiences some sort of civil war that goes on forever. The US Civil War was the same eternal war, the North against the South, and we fight that war in every country where there is contention; it’s always the North versus the South, ironically not so much the East versus the West. Vietnam, Korea, Iraq and everywhere that people fight against themselves, it’s always the North versus the South. Maybe it has to do with the polarities of the North Pole and the South Pole, their destiny may be to attract and repel one another, the positive charge and the negative charge, the plus and the minus, the haves and the have-nots.

 

Finally out of the Dark Ages

The Disciples New Testament has been completely translated and published. There’s no more doubt as to which is the original and authentic Bible. Also, my translation of Genesis, the first Book of the Bible, is posted on this website for everyone to read. It’s the first time that the Bible and modern science are reconciled. Atheists can no longer claim that there are inconsistencies in the Bible with respect to the creation of the universe, evolution, or any other theories that are known to science today or that will become known in the future. As I continue to translate the rest of the Scriptures, many historical events are being clarified. The prophesies of Revelation continue to be fulfilled.  These are some of the issues that this website will attempt to explore.

Rediscovering the Ancient Aramaic Scriptures

My translations of the Scriptures are based on the Ancient Church of the East Bible, which was the first one recorded and preserved intact since the Apostolic Age. Although the religious establishment maintains that the New Testament was recorded first in Greek, my translation proves that the entire Scriptures were recorded first in the language they were conceived, the language Jesus Christ spoke, the Ancient Aramaic. All it takes is an unbiased reading of my translation to realize this. There are also extensive translator notes to prove this. Thousands of passages have been clarified. Major concepts have been restored for the first time.

[Louvre, winged lions of John's Revelation]

Revelation 4:6-8: And before his throne a sea of glass that resembles crystal and in the balance of the throne and around it and before it, four life forms, full of eyes in front and back of them. And the first life form resembles a lion and the second life form resembles a calf and the third life form has a face like a human being and the fourth life form resembles a flying eagle. And all four life forms, every one of them, have six wings around themselves and from inside, full of eyes, and they have no rest day and night from saying, “Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God, Supreme over all. He who Becomes and He who Is and He who Comes.”

These three thousand year old sculptures that appeared in John’s vision of Revelation, were excavated from ancient Ashur when the country was called Mesopotamia. They were brought to the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, in the late 19th Century. My interest in the Bible was sparked when I visited the Louvre to shoot a documentary film on the history and the artifacts of Ashur, Nimrud and Nineveh. The history of the Bible came alive before my eyes that day. I will never forget it. These three cities in Mesopotamia, or Bet-Nahrein, were the capitals of the land that is known as the Cradle of Civilization. Together with Babylon and Sumer in the South of Mesopotamia, they are the lands where the history of the Old Testament began. It’s where the Epics of Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah and the Flood were recorded. These cities were the starting point in Abraham’s journey to the land of Canaan and Egypt. It’s were his children and grandchildren returned to write the history of their ancestors and the Scriptures as we know it today. This knowledge was lost for centuries, buried under the sand and rubble of conquering armies of the Greeks, Romans, Mongols and Arabs. The Crossroads of Civilization ran across the land of Mesopotamia, but the great cities of Ashur remained buried until the late part of the 19th Century. Now that the US has emerged as the sole super power in the world, and especially after the events of September 11th, there’s an interest in civilization again, and a concern for its enemy, terrorism. The Ashurai had to deal with terrorism from the very start of their first settlements ten thousand years ago.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, so drink deeply or never taste the Pierian spring — Alexander Pope.

[Shalmannesar III - British Museum]

Every one of the five major religions of the world took one of the attributes of Ashur and rejected all the others. These attributes of Ashur — or shall we say “God” as He is known in the English language — have been all recorded in the Scriptures. There is God’s love for humanity, sacrificing His only Son on behalf of the sins of His children. There is God’s holiness, which is beyond compare, yet people strive for righteousness above everything else, in anticipation of being rewarded with an earthly kingdom and rule that will never be relinquished. There is the fear of God, the total submission of one’s will to God’s greater will and might. There is God’s all knowledge and His ever-present Spirit that transcends every human soul, creature on earth and inanimate things also, in total harmony and at peace with all. There is the God who reincarnates every spirit and rewards every worthwhile soul forever with everlasting lives. In the Ancient Ashura religion, these attributes are not separate. In the British Museum, the statue of King Shalmanessar the Third exhibits all the symbols of these religions, arrayed at the top of the relief and worn around the neck of this king who ruled at the time of Abraham three thousand years ago, demonstrating that the Ashurai religion encompassed all these attributes.

Now that’s finally becoming known that the language of the Scriptures is the Ancient Aramaic, which evolved from Ashurit, it’s finally possible to interpret the Scriptures correctly and reconcile the tenets of the five major religions: Western Christianity, Modern Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. It’s now possible to return to one conception of what the Scriptures are all about.

Britain Stands Alone, Again!

Read about how the public criticized much like Sir Trump, the legend Sir Churchill. ” Britain Alone “

Upon the collapse of France, the new British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, told his people: “Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him all Europe may be free, and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands; but if we fail, then the world will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say: ‘This was their finest hour.’ ”

Churchill flatly refused to discuss anything with Hitler or any Nazi representative.

Reacting to such blatant and unprecedented defiance, Hitler assembled the Wehrmacht High Command on Tuesday, July 16, 1940, and ordered them to plan for the conquest of Britain.

Hitler the politician ascended the world stage once more, giving a speech to the Nazi Reichstag, broadcast live on radio in Germany and around the world. He portrayed Churchill as a war monger and himself as a reasonable man desiring peace. “I feel a deep disgust for this type of unscrupulous politician who wrecks whole nations,” Hitler said of Churchill. “I feel it to be my duty, before my own conscience, to appeal once more to reason and common sense in Great Britain as much as elsewhere. I consider myself in a place to make this appeal since I am not the vanquished begging favors, but the victor speaking in the name of reason.”

Once more, Germans took the Führer at his word, concluding the British would be to blame for any continuation of the war.
