September 11: A Conspiracy Against Jesus, The Virgin Mary & Ethiopia?

Meskerem 1, 2010 Ethiopian Calendar or Sept. 11, 2017 Gregorian Calendar is right around the corner. Let’s get ready for that unique date with the following stunning curiosities:

Ethiopians have been celebrating their New Year’s Day on September 11 and September 12 (on a leap year) for two millenniums. Around the world, in the US, in particular, September 11th is now remembered because of 9/11when two hijacked aircraft crashed into the New York World Trade Center where nearly 3,000 people were tragically murdered (sacrificed) by anti-Christian Muslims.

For many today, September 11, is a terrible day full of bad memories and the loss of loved ones. But, I am convinced that it is not coincidental that the forces of the anti-Christ picked this day which is full of joy and make it into a day of terror and sorrow. May be Sept. 11 has some transcendent significance because God chose that day to issue a severe warning – or “Harbinger,” as best-selling author Jonathan Cahn calls it – to a nation that was once consecrated to Him, just as ancient Israel was.

Perhaps the September attack in New York, was an attack on Ethiopia, perhaps, on Christianity, because Ethiopians are unknowingly celebrating The Birth of Our “Medhane Alem” Savior Jesus Christ on this very day? There has always been much debate as to when Jesus was actually born.

When was Jesus Born? Is it December 25th or January 7th (Ethiopian calendar)?

According to the well-known Ethiopian religious scholar, Nibure-id Ermias, not only is Our Lord Jesus Christ born on Meskerem 1 – which is The First Day of the first month (Spring) in the Ethiopian Calendar (September 11) — but also Our Blessed Mother Virgin Mary and other Saints and Holy Men.

The following fascinating argument is taken from his website:

The True Date of the Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ that we, Ethiopians of the Holy Covenant in the Faith and Services of Ethiopia: The Kingdom of God, observe to date is, according to the Biblical Ethiopian Calendar, Meskerem 1 (September 11 Gregorian Calendar).

Here are few of the basic premises to this Divine Truth:

1. As God, initially on this date, gave birth to His First Creation of a vulnerable human-being in His Own Image with a corrupt material Universe for him to enjoy, so also did He, as The Incarnate God, was born on this same date as The Second invincible Man of the final Spiritual Creation so that the former would live eternally in the Perfect Kingdom of God, the New Earth and Heavens.

2. The 5500 years span of the Era of Divine Condemnation exacted at the inauguration of Creation upon Adam and Eve and their offspring ends, and the New Year of the Milleniums of Divine Mercy that resulted from the fulfillment of the Divine Promise made to them then begins in the Birth of The Incarnate God The Son on this date.

3. The time of the year when Joseph and the Virgin Mary, for the fulfillment of the prophetic Birth of The Incarnate Son of God, traveled to Bethlehem to be registered in their native city in compliance with the “Decree that went out from Augustus Caesar for all the world to be registered”, and the “Shepherds” who were blessed to witness the angelic glory of the Lord, “stayed out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night” could never be during the snowy winter month of December, but, according to the Gospels, that late summer month of Meskerem (September). (Lk. 2/1-20)

So, could The Date Jesus Was Born be linked To 9/11?

Again, In New York, 3000 people were sacrificed to Lucifer on September 11, 2001. In Benghazi, Libya the American ambassador and many other were sacrificed to Lucifer on September 11, 2012. In Mecca, Saudi Arabia, on September 11, 2015, the weather angels caused a sudden thunderstorm over desert Mecca that toppled a crane on worshipers in a mosque. Over 100 were killed and over 200 injured, and two weeks later over 3000 Luciferian pilgrims were sacrificed there.

Year after year, Muslim clerics observe the moon’s positions to set the perfect date for one of their significant religious holidays. Eid al-Adha, the Islamic feast of slaughter, which is always scheduled by the lunar cycle to determine when hordes of Muslim men should flood the streets and inhumanely butcher thousands of animals. So, when the Muslim leaders discovered that the holiday is expected to fall on September 11, you can guess whether or not they decided to reschedule their mass celebration in ‘respect’ to the catastrophic event. So, Eid was expected on September 11 but based on moon sighting the date confirmed by Saudi Arabia is September 12 – which is also an Ethiopian New Year’s Day (on a leap year)

No “LIFE JACKET” For People of African Origin

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 19, 2016

Ethiopians / Africans LOVE Every Nation, Every Race, Every Gender – For That They Are Hated and Abused

The World Upside Down

They have an evil Islamic guy who terrorized millions of New Yorkers in custody, safe, relaxed and looked after, but innocent African American males get gunned down and killed by police for simply walking on a street, like this one:

Isn’t mindboggling, the family of the Islamic terrorist is suing New Jersey town over ‘racial discrimination’. MUSLIM OFFENDERS are now stealing the RACISM CARD from AFRICAN AMERICANS?

We also remember, in 2013, Boston Marathon fugitive Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was caught alive (and he is still alive) after harrowing 22-hour chase.

How about the following:

Today, a London square became a life jacket “graveyard” to raise awareness of refugees’ plight – yes, the plight of Arab Muslim warriors who are crossing from Turkey to Greece.

The life jacket graveyard was organized by U.K.-based Snappin’ Turtle Productions, in partnership with the London mayor’s office (the Muslim Mayor is in New York mocking New Yorkers, at the same time, congratulating his Muslim brothers in unleashing another reign of terror on the 15th anniversary of 9/11) and several refugee organizations, and is meant to call attention to a United Nations summit about Arab Muslim refugees, which is meeting Today in New York.

The 2,500 life jackets in the Parliament Square display were all actually used by refugees who made the dangerous trip across the sea from Turkey to Greece, according to an emailed statement from Snappin’ Turtle. Of the 2,500 life jackets in the display, 625 were worn by CHILDREN.

This sort of action, and the United Nations summit in New York will always focus on Muslim Arabs, Afghans, Bangladeshi and Iranians – not on the millions of South Sudanese, Congolese war victims and other Christians who are drowning in their thousands on the coast of Libya. Only this year, officially, more than 3,000 Africans have died while trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe. No one is counting the bodies of millions of Africans who are perishing on the sands of the Sahara.

AFRICA, the cannibal Luciferians are feeding their demonic FISHES with the FLESH and BLOOD of your CHILDREN

[Revelation 12:1-5]

kidanemehretAnd there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

The Ethiopian New Year (Enkutatash)

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 7, 2014

Enkutatash2007

By Bantalem Tadesse

Six events are observed every Ethiopian New Year, seven in each hundred year and eight in each thousand year. The Ethiopian calendar celebrates New Year on Meskerem first to commemorate the receding of the great storm during the time of Noah and beheading of Kidus Yohannes, (St. John the Baptist). Hence, the Ethiopian New Year is also known as Kidus Yohannes in memory of the saint and his sacrifice.  All these symbolize the transition from the Old Testament to New Testament. The church also commemorate other monthly and annual holidays (Time Out, Volume 2, Issue13, September 6-12, 2002:9).

Six events are observed every Ethiopian New Year, seven in each hundred year and eight in each thousand year. The Ethiopian calendar celebrates New Year on Meskerem first to commemorate the receding of the great storm during the time of Noah and beheading of Kidus Yohannes, (St. John the Baptist). Hence, the Ethiopian New Year is also known as Kidus Yohannes in memory of the saint and his sacrifice.  All these symbolize the transition from the Old Testament to New Testament. The church also commemorate other monthly and annual holidays (Time Out, Volume 2, Issue13, September 6-12, 2002:9).

One of the monthly holidays observed on the same day is Lideta (Birth day of St. Mary). The other one is Mebacha (beginning of each Ethiopian month). The word ‘mebacha’ is driven from the Ge’ez word ‘ba’ate’, meaning, beginning (or beginning of each Ethiopian month). Therefore, the first day of each Ethiopian month is known by the name of Mebacha. Job is said to have been cured from his wounds on Meskerem first. The annual holiday of the Archangel Raguel and St Bartholomews are also observed on Meskerem first (Synaxarium, V.1, 1994E.C:2). Meskerem first is also the beginning of each Ethiopian year, Ethiopian Century once every hundred years, and Ethiopian Millennium once every thousand years.

The Ethiopian New Year also honors the seasonal transition from the heavy rainy season to the bright and sunny seasons. A typical New Year greeting that is often heard is “May He brings you safely from the year of Luke to the year of John…” Every believer passes through this time wishing for a safe transition to the next season. Hence, when Meskerem comes, it is the time of blissful happiness and relief. The safe transition from the rainy season to the breathtaking bright Meskerem is symbolic of the passage from an awe inspiring night into a beautiful morning. Thus, believers celebrate it with first Enkutatash and then Maskal holidays. This prior season lacks brightness, and is awe-inspiring and often frightening, with lightening and thunder accompanied by powerful rains for the length of the period. As a result, it was traditionally believed that death was on hand at that time, and so insecurities and fear ran rampant. The clergymen sing about the dawning of Meskerem because they consider the preceding rainy season to be darkness.

Within the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church, many religious services accompany Enkutatash. The ecclesiastical procession comprised of liturgy, the showing of the New Years Calendar, and a veneration of St. John. Amongst other wishes, the prayers asked for the protection of the people and domestic animals of the country. It also asks that the harvest to be protected from insects and bad weather conditions.

Mass is conducted early in the morning if the festival falls on non fasting days and in the afternoon if it falls on fasting days (Wednesdays and Fridays). Other liturgical services such as the chanting, preaching, and the explanation of the New Year calendar are performed after the mass when the mass is conducted early in the morning and before the mass when the mass is conducted in the afternoon.  After the chanting and preaching, the proto priest or the Aleka (head) of each church reads the calendar of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, which is called Bahere- Hassab. This points out the days of  festivals and the beginning and end of the fasting days during that year.

Then, the same priest declares the replacement of the old year by the new one. As it is already mentioned, the most commonly used cycle to which the clergy and Ethiopian Christians follow is the four-year cycle. The declaration of the clergy includes, therefore, the transfer from the year of the evangelist of the old year to the year of the evangelist of the New Year. For instance, if the transfer is from the year of  Mark to the year of  Luke, the declaration says ‘ Marekos teshare Lukas negese’ meaning Mark is replaced by Luke … This declaration is repeated three times in the church by the leading priest and other members of the clergy repeat it after each step of the leading priest.

Both Enkutatash and Maskal fall at the end of the rainy season so that traditional songs that reflect the season are common at the celebrations of both Enkutatash and Maskal. The following is a small excerpt from the traditional New Year and Maskal songs: “Eyoha mebratie/Hoye/Leneqati/Eyoha abebaye/Hoye Emotaalhu biye sibaba/ Essey Maskal teba…” Literally, it means, “Let me rejoice with the bright light/ [The dark night] replaced by dawn/ Let me rejoice with flowers, /for Meskerem has dawned with the Maskal Festival, /and I have been shocked by fear of death/ but now rejoice for Meskerem has dawned.”

Both Enkutatash and Maskal also fall with the mass blooming of golden yellow Maskal daisies known as ‘adey ababa’. At the celebrations of Enkutatash and Maskal, children can be heard singing interesting traditional seasonal songs. “Eyoha abebaye / Meskerem tebaye/ Meskerem siteba adey sifeneda/ Enkuan sew zemedum yieteykal bada….” roughly translated as “The bright season of September with the fields decorated with blooming flowers encourage people to visit not only kinsmen but also non kinsmen friends…” These words announce the coming of the bright Ethiopian month with its colorful flowers. The song also encourages everybody to pay a visit to his or her relatives, because the now-receding rivers make it easier for people to travel from place to place.

The Ethiopian new year is also known as Enkutatash. Etymologists relate Enkutatash to the visit of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon of Israel. According to this interpretation, the Queen offered gold and other sumptuous gifts to the King upon her visit to Jerusalem. In return, the king rewarded her with plenty of enku (jewels). When she returned to her country, the people were believed to have celebrated her homecoming- especially the children who were carrying bunches of flowers and singing the phrase “Enquletatash” meaning King Solomon gave you the gems to help you to cover the costs of your trip.

Therefore, the festival’s name is believed to have been driven from the Amharic words “enku”, meaning “jewel”, and “latatash”, which suggests the covering of one’s expenses. In another interpretation, the children said to have a song  “Enqu letatesh”, which means King Solomon gave you enqu (jewels), and letatesh (meaning for your fingers). The festival’s name is believed to have been driven from the Amharic phrase of Enqu Letatish.  Over time, the Amharic letter ‘
‘ (the prefix le-) was dropped and the name was corrupted in to “Enqutatash”. The Enkutatash tradition wherein children give gifts of flowers is a proactive stemming from the Queen Sheba’s homecoming when the children gave her with bouquets (Time Out, Volume 2, Issue13, September 6-12, 2002:9).

While going in the villages, singing the traditional Enqutatash song, children, particularly in the country side, carry gifts of bunches of flower. According to the above interpretation, this tradition is thought to be proactive stemming from the Queen Sheba’s homecoming from Israel after her visit to King Solomon of Israel. It represents the gifts children presented her. In the towns, due to lack of flowers, children go with the pictures of flowers, angels, saints and Ethiopian heroes. In return, children are given or at least promised new clothes or a domestic animal (in the country side) and given coins and slices of home made bread (in the towns).

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church does not accept this interpretation. The Amharic language did not develop at that time and hence ‘Enkutatash’ could not possibly be derived from the Amharic terms “Enqu legetish”, or “Enqu letatish”. Instead, the Church suggests that the flower gifts given at ‘Enkutatash’ represent the olive branch or kietema(wet green grass) that Noah’s dove brought to him to show the receding of the flood waters (as described in Genesis 8: 11-13).

Even though every Orthodox Church celebrates the holiday of ‘Enqutatash’ (Ethiopian New Year), liturgically this festival is observed with special occasions in the churches dedicated to Kidus Yohannes (St. John the Baptist) in commemoration of his beheading. This festival is also celebrated with special emphasis at the Entoto Raguel Church at the top of Entoto Mountain, north of Addis Ababa. It is believed that God authorized the Angel on this day to observe every activity undertaken by God.
GLORY TO GOD
AMEN

Is 9/11/13 Prayer Already Prompting Miracles?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 20, 2013

My Note: I can not answer that. But, I am positive that prayers do wonders. I am also certain that the real universal New Year’s Day is September 11, which is celebrated among Ethiopians. For them it’s a very significant Holiday to celebrate the beginning/arrival of the “Day of Salvation”. There are even alternative thoughts that the real Birth Day of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Mother Holy Mary, Saint John, and many others saints, Holy men and women is September 11, Meskerem 1 according to the Ethiopian calendar. In any case, it would be wise if the rest of the world would take notice of the powerful signs that were displayed over the skylines of the great new Babylon city of New York (big apple), on this very day, 11 years ago, and join the Ethiopians in prayer and fasting, instead of conspiring to destroy them. Dark evil powers are out there actively fighting against humanity and against Egziabher The Lord. So, it would do us good, we would be blessed if we spend September 11 dedicating ourselves to contemplations, meditations and prayers. Let’s not forget to fast, specially on every Friday to contain Saudi zombies (Areb = Friday, in Ethiopic).

And they threw dust on their heads and were shouting with weeping and mourning, “Woe, Woe, O great city – in which all those who had ships on the sea got rich from her wealth – because in a single hour she has been destroyed!”” [Rev 18:19] This could indicate what might come in the future, please read the whole chapter.

 

 

Could prayer events in the U.S. be behind the revelation of political scandals unfolding in the nation’s capital on nearly a daily basis?

That’s what some supporters are beginning to suggest – albeit quietly

On May 2, the nation observed its official day of prayer – one proclaimed by Barack Obama at the request of Congress. Then on May 8, a special prayer meeting in the Capitol was observed by several members of Congress and former members including House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

A special message was delivered by Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger” and the inspiration behind “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” documentary. And now plans are being made for another National Day of Prayer and Repentance on Sept. 11.

Some supporters are beginning to suggest there may be a connection between recent news events and the prayers and calls for prayers.

Talk-show host Barry Farber, who announced his support for the 9-11-13 National Day of Prayer and Repentance on his nationally syndicated program this week was one of those who made the link.

“You’re reminding me of the lessons I learned – and forgot – during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956,” he told WND’s Joseph Farah, who first made the call for the 9/11 event.

“Everybody in Hungary went to bed on October 22, 1956, thinking they were the only anti-Communists left alive in Hungary. By mid-afternoon the next day, there were no Communists left in Hungary. Ditto for those of us who believe in God, endorse prayer, oppose abortion, despise Benghazi lies. Do you realize the extent of the revolution you might be leading? I forgive you if you don’t. It’s all too huge.”

Neither the earlier prayer events nor the upcoming one is meant to be political, but could they have political implications? That’s the question being raised.

Farah says he made the call for the 9-11-13 National Day of Prayer and Repentance out of a sense of frustration with politics and the decline in morality in the country. He suspects there is a connection between the revealing of national “sins” and the desire by believers to confess their own sins to God in unity with other believers.

“The key to this call is II Chronicles 7:14,” said Farah. “This is the prescription of a Holy God for national healing. He tells believers they are to do four things: humble themselves, pray, seek His face and turn from their wicked ways. In turn, God says He will hear their prayers, forgive their sins and heal their land. Honestly, I believe if believers across America do this, we will see miracles. Could it be they are already occurring? I wouldn’t be surprised.”

The 9-11-13 National Day of Prayer has been enthusiastically embraced by thousands around the country, including Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Chuck Norris, David Barton, Jonathan Cahn, Greg Laurie and even syndicated radio talk-show host Mancow Muller. Recently Farah and a small working group behind the project have decided to give the event a new focus – repentance.

“Since the biblical prescription behind this project is II Chronicles 7:14, we determined, after much prayer ourselves, that repentance is the most important missing ingredient in America today,” said Farah. “God told Solomon that when the nation faces judgment for disobedience, there are four requirements for restoration: humility, prayer, seeking His face and repentance. Prayer without repentance is useless – that’s what the verse suggests. In fact, it suggests the prayers of believers go unheard unless is it accompanied by turning ‘from their wicked ways.’”

Also, significantly, Sept. 11, 2013 is the biblical Day of Teshuvah, which means repentance.

And while fasting is often a good idea as a companion to serious prayer, Sept. 11, 2013, comes just three days before Tishri 10 or Yom Kippur, which is a day of fasting.

The Whole World Will Soon Use The Ethiopian Calendar

KasSakAccording to the report, all United Nations member counties voted to abandon Gregorian calendar and adopt the correct Ethiopian Calendars.

Starting from Wednesday, September 11, 2013, all countries in the world are going to use the Ethiopian calendar and celebrate the new year Meskerem 1, 2006.

The Reactions

The Germans said, “it is time we start using the correct calendar. We have been wrong all this time and the time has come to the world to follow our lead, start using the Ethiopian calendar.”

Brits are also agreed that the whole world should use Ethiopian Calendar.

The Italians said that Catholic Church is the one responsible to screw the whole world to use the current Gregorian calendar system and made every country use the wrong calendar for more than 1500 years.

An Italians said “ It is time we stop fooling ourselves and start following the real calendar year”.

The Americans are also 100% for it. “ohh…Yeah..New Year. Let’s party!!!” said an American citizen expressing his willingness to start to use the Ethiopian calendar.

However when we interviewed Japanese citizen Mr. Tokyoshi Chigamta, he asked “Wouldn’t it be easier for Ethiopians to start using Gregorian Calendar than the whole world change to use Ethiopian calendar?” He added “What benefit did Ethiopians get from becoming the only country in the world to use their own calendar? Did Ethiopia take loans and decided to change the calendar to pay 7 years later? I wonder what really happened.”

But too bad for Mr. Tokyoshi, the Japan’s government has already indorsed the decision and he has to use the Ethiopian calendar from now on.

In addition to the calendar, all countries will adopt the Ethiopian way of counting hours. The pm and am system is now out and the easy to use Ethiopian time system is going to be used by every country in the world.
