What strongaxe has said is true God will never contradict himself, when it comes to his word. What people do is misunderstand what he is saying and what they are thinking is not what God meant. He said I am one God and there is no other savior but me, He said he would not give his Glory to another. But he said this to discredit all the gods the world had created and replaced him with.He said he is God of gods. People think these scriptures prove that Jesus can not be Gods Son that he has to be God alone or God contradicts himself. But God was making a point concerning Idolatry. Worshiping his Son is a commandment not only by the Father but the Son also.Joh 14:1,Heb 1:6

Lee1538:

I know Cluny personally, and know that he doesn't believe that he has that kind of infallibility. However, he does frequently use sarcasm and reductio ad absurdum - when someone says "God told me this" (and it's clear that God could not possibly say that, since it would clearly contradict what God has said elsewhere), he sometimes shows how absurd such an assertion is by retorting with "God told me the exact opposite" (which is often implicitly true, based on what God has revealed elsewhere).
---StrongAxe on 11/16/09




If you cannot hear from the Holy Spirit you have no authority to teach the word of God or preach. It is only by the Holy Spirit that the truth can be manifested. No man can come to Jesus unless the Father first draws him. Well the Father is the Holy Spirit. God is a Spirit and seeks those to worship him in Spirit and Truth.
---exzucuh on 11/16/09


Alex, yes, the transfiguration was a powerful manifestation of God. Moses a prominent figure representing the O.T. Law: Eliyah a prominent figure representing the Prophets: and Jesus the greatest figure, God in the flesh, representing the N.T. Law.
---Eloy on 11/16/09


StrongAxe -**You often also equate disagreeing with you to disagreeing with Jesus. You may serve Jesus, but you are NOT Jesus - cult leaders claim both these things.

Perhaps that more accuracy defines the problem we have with Eloy & Cluny. They apparently believe that they have been given some kind of gift of infallibility when it comes to God's word.

What truly bothers me is Cluny's remark that he has message given to him from God to others. Such characterizes many cult leaders. Hopefully he will come to realize that.

I have walked with our Lord since November 1960 and have seen many come to Christ.
---Lee1538 on 11/15/09


Eloy:

Many scholars have no truth, but some DO. Placing your own wisdom above ALL scholars before you, makes you supreme authority of Christianity, above even popes. Jesus could say this, but from anyone else this would be the height of arrogance, presumption, and strong delusion. You often also equate disagreeing with you to disagreeing with Jesus. You may serve Jesus, but you are NOT Jesus - cult leaders claim both these things.

Jesus said those who humble themselves would be exalted, while those who exalt themselves would be abased (Mt 23:12, Lk 14:11).

I have been saved since 1976. How about you? I am not the enemy of Christ - I confound those who say things in his name and claim they are from the Bible, but are not.

\\ Cluny, The sheep hear the shepherd's voice: and he calls his own sheep by name\\

strongax, I Eloy, truly truly say to you, many scholars have no light in them and are manifestedly nonChristian: and until you get saved you will continue to dis the truth and believe whatsoever you desire.

Lee, My Salvation does not tell me to murder anyone, but on the contrary he commands me to share the gospel with the lost in order that they too may have salvation. I turn The Light On, and it is up to individual what they do with The Light: some accept and embrace the light onto blessings, and some reject and castigate the light onto not blessings.
---Eloy on 11/15/09


Until a person gets saved their carnal heart will continue to blaspheme against the holy word, whether written or preached from us saints sent from Christ: But when their heart will turn to the word, their stony heart will be turned into a heart of flesh, then they will no longer be able to blaspheme but will glorify the word of truth. "We are of God: he that knows God hears us: he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you, if they have kept my saying, they will keep your's also." I John 4:6+ John 15:20.
---Eloy on 11/15/09


Mima, Thank you for posting some good questions. We are told that out of the mouth the heart speaks, so we can clearly see on these blogs whom is of Christ and whom is not of Christ, by the fruits they are bearing. It is worldly obstinance, that when I say "Yes", then they will say "No", and when I say "No", then they will say "Yes". Why, because their carnality is enemity against God and his word. I just pray that the lost dissers will become real Christians, and then they will be able to bear true witness for Christ, rather then be the boring enemies of the cross.
---Eloy on 11/15/09


Cluny, The sheep hear the shepherd's voice: and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. And when he puts forward his own sheep, he goes ahead of them, and The Sheep Follow Him, for They Know His Voice. And a stranger will they Not follow, but will flee from that one, for they Know Not the voice of strangers. I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd gives his life for the sheep. My sheep Hear My Voice, and I Know Them, and They Follow Me. We are of God: he that knows God hears us, he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. But all liars will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone." John 10:3-5,11,27+ I John 4:6+ Revelation 21:8.

This scripture saying that faith comes by the

when the deciples saw christ being glorified on the mount, they were seeing much more then just christ beng transfigured,you have to focus on his raiment also,his raiment was GLORIOUS also,which is symbolic of the bride/church,he was presenting to god a GLORIOUS church as paul says in eph.5,without spot or wrinkle,says his raiment was white as snow,as no fuller on earth can whiten them,this answers to rev 19,to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen clean and white,for the fine line is the righteousness of saints,they were seeing the presentation of the bride/church to god,tho your sins be as scarlet ,they shall be white as snow,his raiment was white as snow,i was naked and you clothed me

Cluny -**Jesus communicated with me that I should communicate with this communication.

You really have no visual credentials to tell us what Jesus told you to tell us. Christian will only respond to what is written in His word.

That kind of 'communication' usually comes from people that spend lots of time in meditation in isolation like monks, hermits and other nutcase mystics.

Sorry, but Jesus very clearly tells me to rebuke you. LOL
---Lee1538 on 11/14/09


//Jesus communicated with me that I should communicate with this communication:

You guys really frighten me!

Cluny, Eloy, we really hope and pray that your Jesus does not tell you to murder someone. You know that there are dozens of cases in our world where murderers have claimed they heard voices from God to commit some heinous crime.

You would do well to let the Lord speak thru His word, the Bible instead of acting as if you are some psychic mediumship - a channeler divinely chosen to speak to others.
---Lee1538 on 11/14/09


Eloy:

Do you claim that, in all the world, only you have the truth, and all Christians who in the past 2000 years have been wrong?

If you seriously believe this, it is strong delusion, of the kind all cult leaders are subject to - they believe they alone possess the truth, even when it directly contradicts what God has revealed previously through his scriptures and his prophets.

Paul addresses this directly in Galatians 1:8-9:
"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."

Where do you get the idea that "Helio" is Greek for "Light"? I looked through several dictionaries and could not find any reference at all to this claim.

Can you cite a single authority (other than yourself) that claims this (for example, a dictionary)? If not, we can only assume that you know more about Greek and the New Testament than 2000 years of Christian scholars and Greek scholars.

The transfiguration means metamorphose. Jesus let his disciples see him change and be glorified so they would know he was the Son of God. So you and I could know the power of regeneration and the fact that the body is not the person, It is only a vessel that can be changed at anytime by God. Jesus could change from earthly to heavenly at will. His death, burial, and resurrection made this possible for us to do the same thing.
John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
We can follow Jesus into the Regeneration.Mt 19:28

Alex, There's a song about the Light of God:
~At the cross, at the cross, where I first saw the light,
and the burden of my heart rolled away.
It was there by faith, I received my sight,
and now I am happy all the day.
---Eloy on 11/13/09


Strongax, you should not be astounded at the truth, for it is common knowledge that myths and counterfeits are all perversions of the truth. We Christians worship the one and only real and historical person named, Jesus Christ, but the nonChristians worship their idols of Zeus and meditate on nature and creatures rather than worshipping Jesus who is the Creator of all. So do not be astounded when you learn that lies come from the truth which is corrupted into a nontruth, for that is what it is: add a little here or take away a little there from the truth and what you have is a myth or a fabricated idol of falsehood, namely Zeus who is not Jesus, but the product of the imagination of people.
---Eloy on 11/13/09


Strongax, Helio is also Greek for Light. You are making the same error as Bible translators, by taking one Greek or Hebrew word and translating it into one english word and then using this definition in every instance and usage, which is inaccurate foolishness. Whenever you look up one word in a dictionary, usually you will find more than one definition of that word, because the word has more than one meaning and usage according to the context of usage. For instance, suffer the little children to come up to me, meaning let or allow or permit. But the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, means endures or suffers, which "suffer" does not mean the same thing in these two different usages.

Eloy:

I am astounded you believe the Greek god Zeus is derived from Iesous - especially since the pagan Zeus was worshipped for many hundreds of years before Jesus was born.

Also, people don't pray "Hey Zuus". Spanish people pray "Jesus", by Spanish pronunciation rules, "J" sounds like "H" (which sounds to English speakers like "Hey, Zeus!"), just like English English speakers, by English pronunciation rules, pronounce it like "J" (which sounds like "Gee, Zeus!"). The original and correct pronunciation is like our "Y".

Given how pronunciation changed from Hebrew to Greek (Yeshua to Iesous), gospel writers didn't care about exact pronunciation.
---StrongAxe on 11/12/09


Eloy:

The Greek word for Light is "phos" from which we get words like "phosphorous", "phosphorescent", etc. The Greek word "helios" (and inflected forms beginning with "helio") means "sun", from which we get words like "heliocentric", "aphelion", etc. It is NOT the word for "Light".

These words had different meanings in Greek, just as they do in English. While the sun emits light, it is NOT light. While I can say "I am going out to get some sun" just as well as "I am going out to get some light", I can't say "When you go down into the cellar, the switch at the top of the stairs turns on the sun".
---StrongAxe on 11/12/09


Cluny, I did not say Jesus cried Helios a greek god, I said he cried Helio, which means Light, and the bystanders mistakenly thought he was crying to Elias (Elijah). Iesous and it's derivative Zeus are Greek names for Jesus and is a name for a Greek God also, but when people say "Hey Zuus" in prayer they are praying to Jesus and they are not praying to any Greek god. And yes as you have said, indeed my faith is greater than yours. For I clearly know my name "Eloy", which I have heard God speak, and indeed it means "a light" to me.
---Eloy on 11/12/09


\\then it became dark over all the land which better shows that he was crying "Heli" (or, Helio) the Greek word for "Light" (ref: Matthew 17:2+ Luke 23:44,45).\\

Your erudition of Biblical languages amazes me, Eloy.

The Greek word for "light" is FOS.

HELIOS is the Greek word for "sun"--also the name of the solar deity.

I find it very difficult to believe that in His Passion, Jesus would invoke a pagan deity--in GREEK, no less--especially since the OT teaches that the deities of the pagans are demons.

If you can believe this, your faith is greater than mine.

Strongax, My words are not merely personal taste, but my words are also Truth. I know it is difficult for you to have Christ's thinking which is to think outside of the box, but nonetheless if you were to be perfect then your righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the scribes and of the pharisees. My Jesus is God Almighty, and he easily speaks every language in the world, including the heavenly language of glosssalalia which comes from himself. If he desires to speak various languages in one breath, he is more than able. The error of humans is always trying to limit God to their small thinking, their God is not big enough to be the real God. But that which is not possible to humans, is easily possible with God.

i think this scripture answers to mat 17 ,the transfiguration,isaiah 61v10 i will greatly rejoice in the lord,my soul shall be joyful in my god,for he has clothed me the garments of salvation, he has covered me with robe of righteousness,as a bridegroom decked himself with ornaments ,and as a bride adorned herself with her jewels,this is a clear picture of christ and the church/bride being made 1, a marriage on the 7th day,the last day,and they are the light of the world,ya member the woman is clothed with the sun.rev 19 he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood,and his name is called the word of god,vesture dipped in blood is the bride/church,the word of god is the bridegroom, i was naked and you clothed me,abide in me and i in you
---alex on 11/11/09


Eloy:

Despite your own personal taste with regards to what "eloi" means, the fact remains that Jesus was a Jew living in palestine. He would have spoken primarily Hebrew and/or Aramaic, although he may likely also have been fluent in Greek. When under great stress, even people who speak multiple languages tend to switch back to their native tongues. They don't mix and match words from different languages. If Jesus had wanted to refer to the sun, he would have said "Shemesh". If he had wanted to say light, he would have said "Or". He would NOT have used one Greek word "Helios" in an exclamation of anguish made in Hebrew or Aramaic.
---StrongAxe on 11/11/09

Strongax, The Sun is Light, or would you call the radiance of the sun dark? The sun and the sunlight are the samething. And you accepting the traditional translation which on the contrary is Not more likely than my accepting the literal translation, for my acceptance of Eloi(Light) in the place of El(God) is more likely than the traditional translation as I have stated the grounds earlier, that the sunlight was literally darkened all across the world after he cried the words.
---Eloy on 11/11/09


Eloy:

OK, I see where you get that from Greek (with H). However, this is unlikely for several reasons:
1) Matthew says "Eli", Mark "Eloi", consistent with "My God" ("Eli"/"Elohi"). With "Helios", "Heli" makes sense, "Heloi" does not.
2) "My God" matches Psalm 22:1
3) "Helios" means "sun" not "light". Greeks personified the sun. Jesus would hardly invoke a pagan sun god.
4) "Helios" is Greek, but Jesus is quoted in Hebrew. It is unlikely he would use a Greek word when adequate Hebrew words existed ("Shemesh" or "Or"), especially under extreme duress.
---StrongAxe on 11/10/09


Strongax, but that is only one interpretation. I favor the more accurate "Light" over "My God", because after the people thought that Jesus was crying for Elijah, then it became dark over all the land which better shows that he was crying "Heli" (or, Helio) the Greek word for "Light" (ref: Matthew 17:2+ Luke 23:44,45). Thus "Eloi, Eloi, lima sa bachthani" may also be accurately and literally translated into, lit.Gk: "Light, Light, how onto me utterly ravaged." Evenso, both literations are equally accurate, because God is the Light. Malachi 4:2+ Revelation 21:23.
---Eloy on 11/10/09


Eloy:

Yes, Jesus did say he is the Light of the World. However, on the cross saying "Eli" or "Eloi" (probably "Elohi", since "h" was not written in Greek, but was a diacritic breathing mark), he was saying "My God" (quoting Psalm 22), and not referring to himself as light at that time.

The name Moses "Mosheh" comes from the Hebrew root Draw Out "mshh". It is completely unrelated to the word Water "mym" except that the two start with the same letter.

A loose paraphrase of her statement could be "I called him 'Drawn Out' because I drew him out of the water". His name does't actually contain any part of the word "water" in it.

strongax, I do not follow manmade books like srtongs whoch is proven accordsing to scripture to contain many error, as is in the name of Moses. My earlier posting is completely accurate, but merely contains typo misspelling of mys for mym: "In Hebrew "Mosheh" literally means, "from the water", which is derived from the hebrew word "mym" (not mys), meaning water (Gensis 26:19). Pharoah's daughter took him from the Nile river. "And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water." Exodus 2:10."
---Eloy on 11/9/09


I know exactly what my God given name means to me. But if a person wants to rely upon one English rendition of scripture by translating "My God" for 'My Light", then that is their preogative, but it does not change the meaning of what Jesus cried, for"God(El) is the Light(Eloi)", and when wicked hands chose to put out Jesus' lights then literal darkness spread completely all across the world in the middle of the day light.
---Eloy on 11/9/09


Eloy:

Moses is derived from the root "mshh" which means "to draw out" (Strong's 4871). The Hebrew root "mym" means "water". This same root occurs in many other languages, and was the origin of the letter "mem" from which our letter "M" is derived. (Strong's 4325)

Gen. 26:19 mentions "well of springing water" (translated from Hebrew "beer mayim")

Also, when Jesus cried out "eli, eli, lama sabachthani?" (Matthew 27:46, or Mark 15:34 similar but with "Eloi"), he was quoting Psalm 22:1 "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?". No mention of light here.

Moses means "son" in Egyptian and "to draw" in Hebrew--not anything related to water, which itself has nothing to do with law.

Elijah means "Man of YH"--not anything related to spirit.

Other than that, you might be correct.

And, again . . . Elijah is a *person*, who appears with Jesus > his writings are not said to appear, but the person does. And Jesus is a *Person* of God, of love.

Except for the fact that Elijah never died, and hence has not been resurrected to have a celestial body.

And except that the two witnesses are Elijah and Enoch, not Moses.

Alex, the transfiguration which was witness by Peter, James, and John (I always wondered why Peters brother Andrew was not included) represents the fulfillment of the Hebrew text (or to put it better) the fulfillment of all scripture by the Resurrected Christ in Glory. These apostles were allowed to view it in advanced, but were told not to reveal it until the resurrection of Jesus. The 3 figures you see are Moses, Elijah, and Christ represent the entire scripture. Moses (the Torah/Laws), Elijah (Naviim(Prophets), Christ(Ketuviim/Writings).

Hope this helps

You were transfigured on the mount, O Christ God, and Your disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could receive it, so that when they would behold You crucified, they would know that You suffered wilingly, and would proclaim to the world that You are truly the Radiance of the Father.

Kontakion, 6 August

That says it better than I can.
