መታየት ያለበት | ጌታችን ወደ ሰማይ ያረገባት ቤተ መቅደስ በፀረ-ክርስቶሱ ቁጥጥር ሥር ናት

Posted by addisethiopia on May 16, 2018

ለጉብኝት ወደ ኢየሩሳሌም የሚሄዱትን ክርስቲያኖች፡ ገንዘብ ካልከፈላችሁ ቤተ መቅደሱን ማየት አትችሉም፡ በማለት፡ ሙስሊሞች በድፍረት እየሠሩ ያሉት ወንጀል በጣም አሳዛኝ ነው። አቤት ጥላቻ! አቤት ትዕቢት! አቤት ጥጋብ! አቤት መጨማለቅ!

በአገራችንም፡ አንዳንድ ዓብያተክርስቲያናት አካባቢ፡ የነርሱን ያህል ባይሆንም፡ ተመሳሳይ ክስተት ይታያል። አብሮ ከመኖር የተነሳ ብዙ መወረስ የሌለባቸው ባሕርይዎች ይወረሳሉ፡ ይህንም ከፀረክርስቶሳውያኑ መሀመዳውያን የወረሱት መሆን አለብት።

[ዮሐ. 214-17]

በመቅደስም በሬዎችንና በጎችን ርግቦችንም የሚሸጡትን ገንዘብ ለዋጮችም ተቀምጠው አገኘ፤ የገመድም ጅራፍ አበጅቶ ሁሉን በጎችንም በሬዎችንም ከመቅደስ አወጣቸው፣ የለዋጮችንም ገንዘብ አፈሰሰ ገበታዎቻቸውንም ገለበጠ፣ ርግብ ሻጪዎችንም ይህን ከዚህ ውሰዱ፤ የአባቴን ቤት የንግድ ቤት አታድርጉት አላቸው፡፡ ደቀ መዛሙርቱም፡የቤትህ ቅናት ይበላኛል ተብሎ እንደ ተጻፈ አሰቡ

እንኳን ለጌታችን የዕርገት በዓል በሰላም አደረሰን!

Spanish Catholics Stage ‘Prayer Protest’ After Muslim Mass Prayer At Christian Landmark

Posted by addisethiopia on June 16, 2017

Catholics in the Spanish city of Granada struck back at what they described as a “provocative” decision to stage a Ramadan fast-breaking in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary, by arranging a mass public prayer at the same spot.

“We are here because we can’t allow that to happen. They can’t do it in Granada. They can do so in their place, but not in the Jardines del Triunfo that has been ours for so long,” a Catholic at the event told RT’s Ruptly video agency.

The present-day Jardines del Triunfo started off as 13th century Islamic cemetery during the Muslim occupation of Spain, but is now dominated by a 17th century statue of the Immaculate Conception, located atop a towering pillar.

The decision to stage a prayer to break the daily Ramadan fast on June 10 was taken jointly by a Socialist-controlled city hall and an Islamic group, the Euroarab Foundation.

Those who chanted traditional Catholic prayers at the gardens this week, led by a leader with a megaphone, disagreed.

“It was a lack of respect to Catholics. I love everybody: Arabs, Buddhists alike. It was a provocation, and due to the municipality of Granada,” said a middle-aged woman.

Selected Comments:

“a socialist major”…as usual socialists hate Catholics so much that they team up with Muslims in order to degrade and ridicule Catholics…why socialist hate so much the catholic church???

Looks like the local Muslims have found some new politician friends.

I think it was a place in Spain that saved Europe from becoming Muslim a long time ago.

The Euroarab Foundation is financed with radical, Saudi Wahhabi money. The Saudis want to recover Al Andalus for their idea of Umma. Other religions and not only Christianity will then be outlawed like in Saudi Arabia, the Sharia will be the only law.

If we Catholics would do the same and go to a mosque (what is impossible) then we had already a war going on. But when we are protesting about their provocative behavior then we are blamed for not accepting Muslims. That is why Muslims are not the people who belong to be in European countries. If they want to do their things, they can do it in there mosques that are build with our taxpayers money. What they want more? Integration? Oh what a joke!

Muslims have no place living in modern western countries. If the free world wants to really be free we need to break the chains the world banks have placed upon us and close our borders until the corrupt elite globalists are brought to justice.

Muslims believe Spain “belongs” to them. They want to turn it into another Islamic ghetto full of car bombs.

You have tried and Failed – You will always Fail but We will always be thankful that you keep trying – God Bless Israel.

To understand how Islam spreads anyone can just look at its history.

When they are the stronger side militarily, they just invade and m u r d er all who disagree. Over 80 million men/women/children lost their lives when they invaded the India subcontinent alone.

When they are weaker, they use stealth techniques as is happening in Europe now. The first generation are nice and compliant, but as their population percent grow, the Muslims become more and more demanding and less and less tolerant of their hosts beliefs and values until they do eventually reach a point where they feel strong enough to demand only the Islamic way of life, even to the natives, with dire consequences should the natives disagree.

EVERY nation that is Islamic today became that way by one of the two methods above.

There will come a time when all Muslims will be sent …… Home

Muslim are more passionate about their beliefs. Well kowtowing even 5 times a day will not help them one bit to avoid the eternal destruction.

Islam is blasphemy, plain and simple

Islam will be destroyed along with every other false religion upon the second coming of Jesus Christ.

እግዚኦ! Blasphemy of The Deadliest Sort: Leading Egyptian Islamic Imam: Muhammad Will Marry Virgin Mary in Heaven

Posted by addisethiopia on June 5, 2017

መነፈስ ቅዱስ ዛሬ ወደዚህ አሳዛኝ ጉዳይ መርቶኛል

በመጀመሪያ፦ “መጽሐፍ ቅዱስ ተጨማልቋል፣ ክርስቲያኖች ቀጣፊዎች ናቸው፣ ኢየሱስ አልተሰቀለም!“፤ ከዚያም “ክርስቲያኖች ድንግል ማርያምን ከሥላሴዎቹ አንዷ አድርገው ያመልኳታል!አሉን። አሁን ደግሞ፡ “መሀመድ ማርያምን በገነት ያገባታል!ይላሉ።

ይህ በእምነት ዓለም ተወዳዳሪና ይቅርታ የሌለው ስድብ፣ ሃሜት፣ ክስና ፍርድ ለሲዖል እንደሚያበቃቸው የሚያጠራጥር አይደለም።

ስለዚህ እላችኋለሁ፥ ኃጢአትና ስድብ ሁሉ ለሰዎች ይሰረይላቸዋል፥ ነገር ግን መንፈስ ቅዱስን ለሰደበ አይሰረይለትም። [የማቴዎስ ወንጌል 12:31]

ወንድሞቼና እህቶቼ፡ ይህ የዲያብሎስ ርኩስ ቅዥት ያንገሸግሸናል፣ ይረብሸናል፣ ያስለቅሰናል። የሚያምኑበት ነው፣ የሚሞትለትም ነው፤ ጦርነቱን በሁሉም አቅጣጫ አውጀውብናል። ግን አንጠላቸውም፣ አናሳድዳቸውም አንገድላቸውም። ተንኮላቸውን፣ ቅጥፈታቸውን፣ ሌብነታቸውን፣ መርዛማነታቸውን፣ ጨምላቃና ርኩስ ሥራቸውን ግን እንጠላዋላን። የእግዚአብሔር ቅዱሳን፣ እመ ብርሃን ኣን መላእክቱ ሁሉ ከኛ ጋር ናቸው። ሲዖሉ እዚሁ አሁኑኑ ይጀምራል፤ ያው እርስበርሳቸው እየተበላሉ ነው። በቀል የኢትዮጵያ አምላክ ነውና፡ በእመቤታችንና በልጇ ላይ የተነሱትን ጠላቶቻችንን የሚገባቸውን ፍርድ ጌታችን ዛሬውኑ እየሰጣቸው ነው። ነብያቸው፣ ኢማሞቻቸው፣ ሸኾቻቸውና ቃልቻውቻችው ሁሉ የት እንዳሉ እናውቃለን፡ አዎ! በገሃነም እሳት እየተንጫጩ ነው። የእነርሱ ግትር ተከታዮች፣ የእነርሱ ትዕቢተኛ ሰራዊት፣ ለእነርሱ ሽንጣቸውን ገትረው የሚቆረቆሩና የሚከራከሩ ሁሉ ወደዚያው ወደ ሲዖል እያመሩ ነው።

ክርስቲያን ወገኖቼ፡ ተገቢ ያልሆነውን ታጋሽነት አሁኑ ግቱ፤ ባካችሁ መሀመድን “ነብይ” አትበሉት፣ አይገባውም፣ የነብያቶቻችንም ማዕረግ አታርክሱ፤ በአክብሮትም “አንቱ” እንዳትሉት፤ የቅዱሳን አባቶቻችንን ክብር ይቀንሳልና፤ ይህ ትልቅ ስህተት ነው፤ ግብዝነትም ነው። ሰይጣንን “ቅዱስ” ወይም “አንቱ” እንላለንን?

እኚህ ህንዳዊ የሐዋርያው ቶማስ ተማሪና የእመብርሃን ልጅ የሚሉትን እንስማ። ቀጥሎም ጣፋጭ የሆኑት የእመብርሃንና የኢትዮጵያ ልጆች የሚያስተላልፉትን መልዕክት በጥሞና እናዳማጥ፦

Islamists are SICK and twisted. Allah is evil incarnate and resides in Hell. How dare those disgusting animals even utter the name of our Blessed Mother the Virgin Mary? It’s outrageous!

My Note: While the militant side of Islam is waging a bloody war to physically exterminate our Christian brothers and sisters in Egypt – preachers and Mosque leaders are attempting to attack Christian souls with such outrageously horrendous and satanic teachings. May they all burn in hell!

A leading Egyptian cleric irked his Christian compatriots when he said on television that the Islamic figure Muhammad would marry the Virgin Mary in heaven.

Dr Salem Abdel Galil, a theologian at Cairo’s prestigious Al Azhar academy and a former director-general of the Ministry of Religions, said on his television program that “Allah, hallowed be his name, chose Mary of all the women, alongside Asiya, Pharaoh’s wife, Aisha and Khadijea, Prophet Muhammad’s wives, and Fatima, the Prophet’s daughter. There are verses in the Quran that suggest that in heaven Muhammad will marry the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus peace be upon him, as well as Asiya, Pharaoh’s wife and Kultum, the sister of Moses peace be upon him.”

The Quran said: ‘Allah will give [the Prophet] women preferable to his wives, Muslim, pious, pure women.’” One, he said, referred to Asiya and the other to Mary.

Egypt’s Christian community was enraged by Galil’s remarks. The community’s youth movement issued a statement demanding an apology. The movement’s chairman, Nader Soubhi, said: “We Christians don’t recognize any aspect of the Virgin Mary except her sanctity, her purity and her virginity. The Virgin Mary will never lose any of these.”

In 2010, an Al Azhar cleric caused controversy with a similar ruling, which also raised the church’s ire. Then too, church representatives said they rejected the ruling “which contradicts our religion and holy book. It’s offensive to the Virgin Mary.”

Reverend Abdel Masih Basit said that “the Virgin became pregnant while a virgin, and will forever remain so. And according to Jesus, in heaven you don’t marry but become angels.”

The Christian faith relies on the belief that a man’s soul turns into a spirit after his death and his body turns into light, and therefore there’s no need for partnership or sexual intercourse,” he said.

Selected comments:

The hilarious thing is that this isn’t what a CLERIC said. It comes from the Sunnah, the collection of sacred books of Islam that include the Ahadith, the Sirat, and the Quran. This is mainstream Islamic belief.

Islamists are SICK and twisted. Allah is evil incarnate and resides in Hell. How dare those disgusting animals even utter the name of our Blessed Mother the Virgin Mary. It’s outrageous.

Well first off, according to scripture there are no marriages in the kingdom to come or heaven. Jesus said we will be like the angels which neither marry or give in marriage.

No Muslim can or will ever enter heaven.

I really don’t think Mohammad will get anywhere even close to heaven. Where he will be, it will really be hot down there.

The only place that these Muslim clerics will see Mohammad is when they meet him in hell.

Mary in heaven, Mohammad in hell…that would be a neat trick. On the one hand, the Virgin Mary, a woman of faith and mercy. On the other hand, Mohammad, a man of rape and murder. This is not only blasphemous, it is ludicrous.

Islam, the ideology of the dead. There will be no “marriage” in Heaven. Jesus is the groom, all others that receive Him as Lord and Savior are the bride. Pray that the Spiritually lost ask Jesus to be their Lord and Savior before they die the first death. The second death is a permanent one.

Mr. Mohammad is in Hades from what we know. Because he did not receive Jesus Christ as his savior. And after the resurrection of the dead, he will be judged in front of the Great White Throne and be thrown into the lake of fire and be separated from God forever.

Blasphemous Erdogan To Pray Inside The Famous Orthodox Christian Church On Good Friday

Posted by addisethiopia on April 8, 2017

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has announced his intention to pray at the Hagia Sophia on April 14, delighting Muslim activists who argue that the building remains a mosque.

In 1934, Turkish leader Kemal Ataturk decreed that the Hagia Sophia should be a museum, as part of his drive for secularization. But some Turkish Muslims question the validity of that decree.

Erdogan, who has favored Islamic claims in Turkey, will visit the Hagia Sophia—a building that was originally a Christian church—on the day when the Christian world observes Good Friday.

The President will pray together with members of his party and the religious leaders in Istanbul. The event falls two days before the referendum, to garner the Muslim vote. Transformation of the ancient Christian basilica into a museum rejected. Erdogan: Kemalism is dead.

Thus Erdogan, nicknamed the “new sultan” for his political extremism, will seek to channel Muslim faithful in favor of a Yes ( “Evet”) vote. According to the Muslim calendar the month to April (Nisan) is the month of the birth of Mohammed.

The news is carried in pro-government newspapers, presenting the latest book by Turk historian Mustafa Armagan – titled “The Saint Sophia intrigue” (Aya Sofia Entrikalari). In doing so they seek to create and prepare the climate for the prayer, as the will of the Turkish president. The book argues that the decree signed by Kemal Ataturk in 1934 which turned the Hagia Sophia from mosque into a museum, is not authentic. According to Armagan, the Kemal Ataturk signature on the decree is false. Therefore the act has no legal value and therefore Santa Sofia can in fact be used as a mosque, as was the case after the Turkish conquest of Constantinople in 1453.

Hagia Sophia it was built in 537 by Emperor Justinian and dedicated to God’s Wisdom. To justify his remarks, the Turkish historian reports that the Kemal Aturk signature on the 1934 Decree is unlike any other signature penned by the Father of Republic in prori acts.

Various sources are cited in the book which claims, according to the author, that the transformation of Hagia Sophia into a museum, was the result of pressure from various Western international forces, headed by the then US Ambassador Joseph Grew.

Mustafa Armagan also notes the news that Kemal Ataturk had visited St. Sophia in 1935, three months after its proclamation as a museum, was not reported in any Turkish newspaper of the period, but only by the Greek language journal, Apogevmatini, published on February 7, 1935, in Istanbul. The author recalls, in that same period, the strong reaction of the Egyptian newspaper “El Risale “, strongly opposed to the transformation of Hagia Sophia into a museum.

In this way the pre-referendum climate is becoming increasingly tense and polarized. On the other hand, the climate has been fostered and created by Erdogan himself with his recent statements against the Kemalist period, when he proclaimed: “That period, which began in 1923, is about to end. And that’s that”. And that is, woe to the vanquished.
