Isaiah 45 NWT
21  Make your report, present your case. Let them consult together in unity.Who foretold this long ago And declared it from times past? Is it not I, Jehovah? There is no other God but me; A righteous God and a Savior, there is none besides me,

Now James in plain English when YHWH says

There is no other God but me; what does He mean ?

You are not a child are you Leclerc you do have some knowledge of scripture so why do you find simple things so difficult to understand.

I only worship the one Jesus told me to worship how many do you worship?

Matthew 6:9, 10
You must pray, then, this way: ‘

Our Father in the heavens,

let your name be sanctified.

 Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.

Sermon for Palm Sunday
by St Andrew of Crete

Our father among the saints Andrew of Crete, was Archbishop of Crete at the end of the 7th century and the beginning of the 8th. He was a true luminary of the Church, a great hierarch—a theologian, teacher and hymnographer, best known for writing the Great Canon.



Let us go together to meet Christ on the Mount of Olives. Today he returns from Bethany and proceeds of his own free will toward his holy and blessed passion, to consummate the mystery of our salvation. He who came down from heaven to raise us from the depths of sin, to raise us with himself, we are told in Scripture, "above every sovereignty, authority and power, and every other name that can be named," now comes of his own free will to make his journey to Jerusalem. He comes without pomp or ostentation. As the psalmist says:

He will not dispute or raise his voice to make it heard in the streets. He will be meek and humble, and he will make his entry in simplicity.

Let us run to accompany him as he hastens toward his passion, and imitate those who met him then, not by covering his path with garments, olive branches or palms, but by doing all we can to prostrate ourselves before him by being humble and by trying to live as he would wish. Then we shall be able to receive the Word at his coming, and God, whom no limits can contain, will be within us.

In his humility Christ entered the dark regions of our fallen world and he is glad that he became so humble for our sake, glad that he came and lived among us and shared in our nature in order to raise us up again to himself. And even though we are told that he has now ascended above the highest heavens – the proof, surely, of his power and godhead – his love for man will never rest until he has raised our earthbound nature from glory to glory, and made it one with his own in heaven.

So let us spread before his feet, not garments or soulless olive branches, which delight the eye for a few hours and then wither, but ourselves, clothed in his grace, or rather, clothed completely in him.

We who have been baptized into Christ must ourselves be the garments that we spread before him. Now that the crimson stains of our sins have been washed away in the saving waters of baptism and we have become white as pure wool, let us present the conqueror of death, not with mere branches of palms but with the real rewards of his victory.

Let our souls take the place of the welcoming branches as we join today in the children’s holy song:

  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Blessed is the king of Israel!

Who invented palm Sunday?

Who invented saints days?

Why did Christians stop honouring God's name in the same superstitious way the Jews did?

Have we discovered who Babylon the Great is yet?

As it remembers Christ's final entry into Jerusalem, ultimately it was God Who "invented" the day and the event it commemorates.

JamesJah wrote:

As saint's days are usually celebrated on the date that the saint in question died, ultimately it would be God again, Who ordains such things.

Quote:

That is begging the question: Christians did not stop honouring God's name "in the same superstitious way the Jews did" - what Jesus Christ did was reveal a far more intimate and personal name for Him: Father, even our Father. You will barely find an instance in the Old Testament where God is described as "our Father". Yet how many times does Christ refer to Him as His Father and our Father?

I don,t mind saying/typing the English transliteration "Jehovah" or "Yahweh", so there's no superstition here. Maybe there is some superstition on the part of people who believe we need to use these names, though.


Quote:

Well, "we" have not shared what "our" answers to this question are, nor whether they are the same. This is mainly because I am not really interested in your interpretation, and you are not actually interested in mine and that your question is purely used for rhetoric (or as a springboard for you to advertise the JW's answer).

Any or all of these questions could be expanded into other threads, as I requested in the OP. I even said there that any threads inspired by this one could have links posted here for anyone who was interested. Regardless of what you believe and the truth of it, your singularly obstinate refusal to do this simply shows a lack of respect that makes it incredibly difficult to muster up any desire to care what you're saying. I'm not arguing that you must post in such-and-such a way, but pointing out that, unless you do try being a bit more controlled in your posting, you won't be getting any more responses from me. You may count that as a blessing!
