  1. Acknowledge the ChristLight WITHIN you. I AM THAT I AM.

  2. True. I think our hearts are restless until we find God, the Father of Jesus. I say it that way because as humans, we tend to worship many "gods." The quest is noble. Never give up the quest I say. The bible says God is love. I believe that. I also think we all have a God particle within us, no matter what our belief system is. I think that has to do with the light within us. I think we all find God, if we ever really do, in our own ways. So much of how we explain our beliefs is semantics.
  3. I can understand that point of view. I've even questioned these things myself. I question everything. But one thing I cannot deny are my personal experiences in prayer and at other times when I feel God's presence. There really are no words to describe the indescribable.
  4. Sorry for the delay in my response. The only people that I read of who did speak against Jesus were the Jewish Pharisees and the Sadducees of his time, pretty much saying that he was a fraud. I have read stories handed down through the Jewish oral tradition, that the back wall of the tomb was a movable stone, that Jesus body was stolen, and that story has been told to this very day. I took a class from an energy teacher, whose mother was of the Jewish faith. The teacher told this story in the process of teaching something else. I was surprised it was still being promulgated today. Many New Age people think Jesus was merely a prophet. For me, there are simply too many miracles noted, for me to dismiss them. I think it is always good to keep seeking.
  5. So glad you are back. May God bless you and your ministry. You have a lot to share.
  6. Love your motto! Wisdom dispelling ignorance.

  7. After a long break, I am back. I am looking to reconnect with past friends and find new friends here in the ULC. I welcome all new ministers here in the ULC. Since we are interfaith, I am hoping to add friends and communicate with people of all beliefs. I am so thankful for the ULC. It is the perfect place to connect with others, continue education, share experiences, and in the process possibly be of help to others.

  8. That's OK. Since then, I have posted another couple posts on the Secret Book Of James, which I divided into two parts. I should also post them here in the ULC forum. They are also on my website: https://enlightenmentministriesrevlindahourihan.wordpress.com/. Let me get them on the forum too.
  9. I can understand that. My next thought addresses your first question, of one covenant or two. Lately I have been studying the Nag Hammadi Scriptures, many of which describe that initially God first created Jesus, being love, and Sophia, being wisdom, and that all the rest of Creation was to be made through them, from love and wisdom together. But Sophia creates on her own and creates Yaldaboath, who then creates 7 archon. Yaldaboath then looks around and seeing no other greater than himself, stands up and says, "I am the lord they God ..." and proceeds with how all creation is to revere him. It never says he was evil, but Sophia, seeing the snake-like form that he was "like an aborted fetus," casts him down to earth. Yaldaboath was created out of wisdom, without love, these books say. It goes on to say that Yaldaboath created humans. The Good God of heaven, Father of Jesus, then had compassion on us humans, after being created and having to deal with the fallen angels of Genesis 6 fame, and sends Jesus to show us the better way we should live, so that we could become adopted sons and daughters of the Good God of heaven. If this is the case, that we were made from there good seed of Sophia, but with the bad seed of Yaldaboath, I could understand why Jesus would be sent to us, as the new covenant. It also makes much more sense that we are the field sown with both good and bad seed. This thought, new to my thinking, if it is at all true, makes much more sense to me, how the God of the Old Testament is such a blood thirsty God, requiring numerous animal sacrifices, and sanctioning the death of every man, woman and child in the numerous cities he wants conquered. I have always wondered, "Wasn't there one innocent eight year old girl in Sodom and Gomorrah, or any of the other lands conquered? Were one hundred percent of the cities and towns conquered with any redeeming people in them?" More and more I am reading the things Jesus said in a new light. I have also been researching different Bibles, because I notice that some of the newer translations actually change the intent of the verse. Take Luke 17:20-22 for example. The newer translations say that "the kingdom of God is among you." But the older translations like the Tyndall translations, the King James version, and the Holy Bible from Aramaic with the George Lamsa translation, as well as the Interlinear Bible with Hebrew, Greek and English says that "the kingdom of God is within us." That is an entirely different thing. I keep seeking because so much, like the Nag Hammadi Scriptures for so long were hidden from us. I think this sheds new light on the topic of one covenant or two.
  10. I have been looking very closely at all of this, and the promises and threats from the "God" of the Old Testament. More and More I see that Jesus in John 8:44 really meant what he said, when Jesus specifically says his Father is not our Father, that our father is the devil and the father of lies. I can better understand, that God, the Father of Jesus had compassion on us, because he IS Love, and not a vengeful god. No wonder we have to go through Jesus to get to the God of LOVE.
  11. I know. For this very reason, I have been taking a much deeper look at which "God" is saying this. I seems that the "God" of the Old Testament is not a very loving "God," but a violent and blood thirsty "God." This is making me take a better look at the Nag Hammadi Scriptures, when they say that we were not made by God the Father of Jesus, but by Yaldaboath, who was made out of wisdom, but not love. I dismissed this years ago when I first heard it. But then I came across John 8:44, where Jesus specifically says that his Father is not our father, that our father is the devil and the father of lies. Interesting.
  12. The first thing that comes to mind is when God says he will never again send a flood to kill all mankind. Could that be considered a covenant, a promise between God and man?
  13. I have just finished the first lesson in the Comparative Religion (Part 1) Class, taught by Rev. Kythera Ann. My first order of business was to go out and restock my library, since I had passed some books on to others over time. The Dead Sea Scrolls give so much insight to YHWH, revealing vital information not includes in mainstream Bible's. I dove into the I Ch'ing, since I do not have any foundation on Chinese belief systems. I have studied at length the Japanese and Reiki energy systems. Today I found practical use for the Interlinear Bible (Hebrew/Greek/English), which then sent me to Strong's Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, in order that I could make my point on the ULC Forum backed up by relevant research. I enjoyed learning about the Philosophy of Religion, which touches on logic, metaphysics, epistemology, ontology, ethics and aesthetics. I would also add cosmology to this list. This sent me to Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Metaphysics deals with fundamental nature of reality and being, which includes epistemology, ontology, and cosmology. WHAT??? So here you go: 1) Epistemology is the study or a theory of nature and grounds of knowledge especially with reference to its limits and validity. 2) Ontology is the abstract, philosophical study of what is outside objective experience, which is steered philosophy away from metaphysics, and toward the disciplines of natural science and linguistics. (This definition is from TIME) The rest of that list I knew, logic, ethics and aesthetics. This lesson also had me list the many different religious and metaphysical services around in my area. I made this list, with names, addresses and phone numbers. I am to visit these once per month during this course. As an interesting side note here, when I moved to a new town in a new state in my retirement, I did exactly this, and visited all the churches in my new area to see what was being taught from the pulpits. I was amazed at the services, from the sublime to the (shall I say) ridiculous. This is about an 8 month course. It should be interesting to see if I can get all this reading, studying commenting and assignments done in a timely manner. I also appreciated learning who added what to the various beliefs about God; 26 well known people from Xenophanes and Plato to Radhakrishnan and Borodin. From here, the lesson goes in to the Old Torah, Hebrew as a sacred language (not modern Hebrew) and based on ideographic glyphs similarly applied to sacred texts in Egyptian, Sanskrit, Greek, Runes (Runes!?), Chinese and several other languages. I learned that Hebrew as no vowels (which I knew), since vowels are considered "G-d's breath, therefore giving life to the "Word" (which I did not know). The section explaining Hebrew glyphs, letters and numbers, was almost lost on me. For example, "In the beginning" would look like "BRAShYTv" (Beth, Reich, Aleph, Shin, Yod, Tav) or 2, 200, 1, 300, 10, 400. Each one of those numbers/letters has concepts associated with it. I at least get the concept, but got lost in the detail, until it was explained, and even then. Through the use of numbers, correlated to letters, and including the use of will and individuality; choice including principle, law and duality; harmony including family, spirit and understanding; and lastly, building including form and responsibility; we can better understand these letters and numbers. What I could relate to here was her conclusion about the meaning of "In the beginning," after she broke it down using these numbers and explanations. She explained that in this example, that perhaps embedded within creation, within each one of us, is the ability to become complete, to truly realize our Spiritual inheritance. And all that from those first few words, "In the beginning." I think I am still at the beginning, even though I have been at this for years.
  14. More to the point of this initial topic of One Covenant or Two, I checked out The Interlinear Bible (Hebrew-Greek-English), which sent me to Strong's Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. It is true that the Hebrew word "kohen" means one officiating, a priest, or one acting as priest, as Zamber aptly points out that even pagans had their priests who served their gods, as intermediaries between their god and the people. This concordance says that the Jewish priestly role began in the days of Moses (commonly referred to as the Old Covenant). Jesus (known as the New Covenant) says he came to fulfill the Law (Old Covenant) not destroy it. This an interesting question.
