Old Testament

Isaiah 60:10-12

790 to 680 BC

Isaiah 60:10-12 (King James Version)

 10And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

 11Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

Duteronomy 15 23 Banking and Loans not from your kind, from others its ok

Written at the time of Moses 1450BC? Jesus Christ fundamentally changes this. First by his total rejection of wealth, and second by the inclusion of all into the new covenant he has given us with God. Today we find so much suffering that is caused by our banking system.  We should all be attentive to the word of Christ  to guide us through this crisis.    

 

Deuteronomy 15

(Is this our statute of limitations )

Ezekiel 8:14-18 Tammuz babylonian God

 14Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
 15Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
 16And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

THE QUESTION OF PSALM 104

From ... http://www.seanet.com/~realistic/psalm104.html THE QUESTION OF PSALM 104 This story begins in ancient Egypt with Amenhotep IV. (l350-1334 BC). He has been identified as uniquely the first "monotheist" worshipping his single god "Aten", the Sun. Aten, similar to the ancient Egyptian god "Ra", was represented by the sun-disk, was the creator of all life, and was a god of goodness and divine benevolence. Amenhotep was so sincere that he changed his name to Akenaten [also spelled Iknaten].

Calendar

Today we take our solar calendar for granted. But it was the ancient Egyptians who were the first to develop a solar calendar. Before the unification of Lower and Upper Egypt around 3150 BCE into what we call the Ancient Egyptian civilization, the two countries developed their own calendars. In Lower Egypt, the winter solstice was regarded as the birthplace of their sun god Ra. Around 4500 BCE, they counted the time elapsed between Ra's visits to his birthplace as 365 days. To keep track of his birthday, they introduced a lunisolar calendar of this length. It had 12 moons or months of 29 or 30 days each and an additional or intercalary month every two or three years as the first month. This meant the celebration of the birth of Ra could always be in the last month
