‘White Ethiopians’ Singing Hymn to St. Michael in Ethiopic/ Geez | የቅዱስ ሚካኤል ግዕዝ መዝሙር በነጭ ኢትዮጵያውያን አንደበት

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 21, 2022

❖ ኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን የተቀበለ ሁሉ የክርስቶስ ቤተሰብ ነው፤ ኢትዮጵያዊ ነው!

የኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን የሚቀበል ሁሉ የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አካል ነው፤ ስለዚህ ኢትዮጵያዊ ነው! የእግዚአብሔር ልጅ መባል እና የቤተሰቡ አባል መሆን ትልቅ ክብር ነው። የትም ብትሄድ ወይም ማን ብትሆን ሁልጊዜም የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አካል ትሆናለህ። ሁሉም አማኞች የቸሩ ጌታ የልዑል እግዚአብሔር ልጆች ናቸው።

በኢየሱስ የሚያምኑ ብቻ የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አካል ይሆናሉ። የዮሐንስ ወንጌል ምዕራፍ ፩፥፲፪፡፲፫፤

ለተቀበሉት ሁሉ ግን፥ በስሙ ለሚያምኑት ለእነርሱ የእግዚአብሔር ልጆች ይሆኑ ዘንድ ሥልጣንን ሰጣቸው፤ እነርሱም ከእግዚአብሔር ተወለዱ እንጂ ከደም ወይም ከሥጋ ፈቃድ ወይም ከወንድ ፈቃድ አልተወለዱም።”

በዓለም ላይ ያለ ማንኛውም ክርስቲያን የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አካል ነው። አማኞቹ በአፍሪካ፣ በአሜሪካ፣ በአውሮፓ፣ በእስያ ወይም በአውስትራሊያ ቢኖሩ የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አካል ናቸው። የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ በማንኛውም ባህል፣ ጎሣ፣ ዕድሜ፣ ወይም ጾታ የተገደበ አይደለም (ገላትያ ፫፥፳፰)። በእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ ውስጥ ያለ ሰው ሁሉ እኩል ነው (ሮሜ ፪፲፩)

የማያምኑ ሰዎች በክርስቶስ ስቅለት፣ ቀብር እና ትንሣኤ ላይ እምነት ስላላደረጉ የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አባል አይደሉም። አማኝ ከሆኑ ግን እነሱም የእግዚአብሔር አምላክ ቤተሰብ አባላት መሆን ይችላሉ። የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አባል መሆን ድንቅ ነገር ነው። የእግዚአብሔር ቤተሰብ አካል ከመሆን የበለጠ ምንም ነገር የለም።

እነዚህ ፈረንጅ ወንድሞች ኢትዮጵያን፣ ተዋሕዶ ክርስትናን እና የግዕዝ ቋንቋን ለመክዳት ከወሰኑት ጋላኦሮሞዎች ይልቅ የክርስቶስ አምላክ ቤተሰብ አካል ለመሆን በመብቃታቸው በጣም የታደሉ ናቸው። ከሃዲዎቹ ግን ወዮላቸው!

❖ Everyone who accepts Orthodox Tewahedo Christianity is part of the Family of God Egziabher, and He or She is Ethiopian! It is a great honor to be called a child of God Egziabher and to be a part of His family. No matter where you go or who you are, you will always be part of God’s family. All believers are children of the Good Lord God Almighty Egziabher.

Only those who place faith in Jesus become part of God’s family. John 1:12-13 says;

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God — children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”

If you are a Christian, then you are a child of God and you are part of God’s family. You will never lose your place in God’s family as once a person is saved; they are always saved. Nobody can lose their salvation as salvation is a gift from God. Salvation is not based on anything we do, but rather on placing faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Unbelievers are not part of the family of God because they have not placed faith in Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. If they become a believer, then they too can become members of God’s family. Becoming a member of the family of God is a wonderful thing. There is nothing greater than being part of the family of God.

It is a great honor and privilege to know God as your Father. Being a member of the family of God includes knowing that you are eternally and forever loved by God Almighty. It means that you can never lose your place in His family. The concept of being part of “a family” can be foreign to many of us.

Broken homes, hatred between family members, or never knowing your parents can cause an individual to be skeptical of the idea of a “family.” In God’s family, there is no abandonment, hatred, or abuse. Only love, forgiveness, and grace abide within God’s family. He will never cast you out or turn you away (Isaiah 41:10).

Since we have God as our Father, we can freely talk to Him in prayer any time we want. God is the Holy Trinity, which is the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Three distinct Persons — One God. As children of God, we can pray to Him anytime, anywhere.

You do not have to use eloquent words, lengthy prayers, or rehearse your words in order for God to hear you. Jesus’ death on the cross enabled us to become children of God. If it was not for Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, we would not be children of God. This is something worth reflecting on as we owe our entire beings to God.

It is only by His mercy that we are privileged to spend eternity with Him. God loves us so much that He willingly sent His Son to die for us (John 3:16-17). There is no greater love than the love God has for His children.

Maybe your father, mother, or siblings did not treat you very well growing up. Even if our earthly families have hurt us or abandoned us, we know God never will. Psalm 27:10 tells us, “Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.” God will never forsake you. He can be fully trusted.

We Are the Family of God

Every Christian in the world is part of the family of God. Whether the believer lives in Africa, America, Europe, Asia, or Australia, they are part of the family of God. God’s family is not restricted to any culture, ethnicity, age, or gender (Galatians 3:28). Every person within the family of God is equal (Romans 2:11).

Likewise, each person is strongly beloved by God, and He wants all people to know Him. Once we accept Jesus as our Savior, we become eternally part of God’s family. As part of God’s family, we inherit thousands of brothers and sisters in Christ.

😇 Commemoration of the Archangel Saint Michael- የሕዳር ሚካኤል

Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church honors Saint Michael (Kidus Mikael); the Angel of mercy; on the 12th of each month of which two of them are great annual feasts of the saint – on Hidar 12 (November 21) and Senie 12 (June 19). His name Michael means “who is like God”.

Saint Michael is one of the seven Archangels, who is always standing besides God’s throne and is honored for defeating Devil at God’s command (Rev.12:7-9).

In addition to the Holy Bible, “Dersane Michael” contains the miracles of St. Michael. Archangel Saint Michael is powerful and the guardian of the souls and fighter against evil. He is often painted in the walls of every Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo church followers with a flaming sword and spear, which pierces the devil.

❖ On Hidar / ሕዳር ፲፪/ 12 (November 21):

1. Crowned and became the Arch of the Archangel’s

Saint Michael is one of the seven Archangels, who is always standing besides God’s throne and is honored for leading the army of Holy Angels and defeated Satan and the rebellious angels into Hell. Revelation 12:7 On this day God crowned him with his glory and mercy and become the Arch of the the Archangel’s

2. The Commander of the Lord’s Army

Joshua, the son of Nun, saw him in great glory and was frightened by him and fell on his face to the earth and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” So he said, “No; but as Commander of the army of the Lord… I have given Jericho into your hand, … and its king.” (Joshua 5:13-15, 6:2)

3. The Exodus of Israel from Egypt through the help of the Arch Angle Michael

Exodus 14:19-22:

19 Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, 20 coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.

21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

23 The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. 24 During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He jammed[a] the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.”

26 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” 27 Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward[b] it, and the Lord swept them into the sea. 28 The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.

29 But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left. 30 That day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore. 31 And when the Israelites saw the mighty hand of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord and put their trust in him and in Moses his servant.

Michael, is the commander of the angels, came down from heaven, and rolled back the stone from the mouth of the tomb, and announced the women “Christ is risen from the dead”.

St. Paul observes that the Hebrews “ all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea” (1 Cor. 10:1-4; Rom. 6:3-4; Gal. 3:27).

There is a common ritual practiced by the devotees in order to commemorate, worship and give thanks. Ethiopian traditional bread – Difo Dabo, roasted barley – Kolo in the name of St. Michael are being prepared and shared in the church.

May the prayer of Archangel Saint Michael be up on us!

Pope Prays for Peace in Ethiopia | ርዕሰ ሊቃነ ጳጳሳት ፍራንሲስኮ ስለ ኢትዮጵያ ሰላም ይጸልያሉ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 23, 2022

At the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Francis appeals to political leaders to find solutions for lasting peace in Tigray

Pope Francis called on political leaders “to put an end to the suffering of the defenceless population” in Ethiopia, and “to find equitable solutions for a lasting peace throughout the country.”

The Tigray region of Ethiopia has been racked with violence since war broke out almost two years ago. Earlier this month, the UN expressed grave concerns over a surge in violence beginning in August, after a five-month humanitarian truce.

Pope Francis on Sunday said he is following the confict in Ethiopia with “trepidation,” and repeated “with heartfelt concern that violence does not resolve disagreements, but only increases the tragic consequences.”

He expressed his hope that the efforts of the various parties in the conflict “for dialogue and the pursuit of the common good” might “lead to a concrete path of reconciliation.”

The Holy Father concluded his prayer with the hope that “our prayers, our solidarity, and the necessary human aid not fail our Ethiopian brothers and sisters, who are so sorely tried.”

Ethiopia: Oromo Muslims & Protestants Openly Demonstrate for a Total Annihilation of Orthodox Christians

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 22, 2022

አዲስ አበባ፤ ፲፪ ጥቅምት ፳፻፲፭ ዓ.ም ፤ ቅዱስ ሚካኤል፣ ቅዱስ ማቴዎስ

የኦሮሞ ሙስሊሞች እና ፕሮቴስታንቶች የኦርቶዶክስ ክርስቲያኖችን ሙሉ በሙሉ ለማጥፋት በግልጽ ሰልፍ ወጡ።

💭 በቀጥታ ከሰይጣን ጋር ጦርነት ውስጥ እንገኛለን፤ ሰይጣን ‘መንግስቱን/ ኢሚሬቱን/ኡማውን’ መመስረት እና የክርስቲያኖችን ሙሉ በሙሉ መጥፋት ይሻል።

ዛሬ የሰው ልጅ ሁለት ፍጹም የተለያዩ አካላት ፊት ለፊት ተጋርጠውበታል። ኃጢአት የሌለበት ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ እና በኃጢአት የተሠቃየው ሐሰተኛው ነቢይ መሀመድ ፤ እንዲሁም ሁለት እጅግ በጣም የተለያዩ አማልክቶች፤ ኃያሉ የሞራል ፍፁም አምላክ ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ እና ዋቄዮ-አላህ (ፀረ አምላክ/ የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ)። በሰልፉ ላይ የሚታዩት እነዚህ ክፉ አባ ገዳዎች /አገልጋዮች/ፓስተሮች በክርስቲያኖች ላይ የበለጠ የዘር ማጥፋት ጥሪ በማድረጋቸው እና እስልምናን በመደገፋቸው እግዚአብሔርን ክደዋል እናም ዋቄዮ-አላህን (ፀረ-አምላክ/ ፀረ-ክርስቶስ)ተቀብለዋል።

የሰው ልጅ ከሁለቱ በጣም የተለያዩ አማልክቶች መካከል ምርጫ አለው። በአንድ በኩል የሰላም፣ የፍቅር፣ የምህረት እና የቸርነት እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (የሞራል ፍፁም አምላክ)ወይም ክፉው ዋቄዮ-አላህ (ፀረ አምላክ/ ፀረ-ክርስቶስ) የማጥፋት፣ የዘር ማጥፋት፣ ግድያ፣ ግድያ፣ ጥላቻ፣ ሽብር፣ ስቃይ፣ ጭካኔ፣ ባርነትና መደፈር አምላክ።

እና ሁለቱ ፍጹም የተለያዩ ነቢያት፤ ኢየሱስ እና መሀመድ

ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ የሰላምና የፍቅር፣ የቸርነትና የምሕረት እውነተኛ ነቢይ ነበር። ሐሰተኛው ነቢይ መሐመድ ግን የማጥፋት፣ የመግደል፣ የእርድ፣ የመድፈር፣ የሽብር፣ የማሰቃየት፣ የጥላቻ፣ የባርነት፣ የሕጻናት ትንኮሳ እውነተኛ ነቢይ ነበር። እነዚህ ወንጀሎች ናቸው። እነዚህ በሰብአዊነት ላይና ሁሉን ቻይ አምላክ ላይ የሚፈጸሙ ወንጀሎች ናቸው።

ዋቄዮ-አላህ ክርስቲያኖችን እያሸበረ፣ እየገደለ፣ ቤተክርስቲያናቸውንና ገዳማቸው እያፈርስ፣ ሴቶቻቸውን እየዘረፈ እና እየደፈረ ሙስሊሞችን አቅፎ እንደ መለኮታዊ፣ እርኩስ የዋቄዮ-አላህ ህግጋቶች (ፀረ አምላክ/ ፀረ-ክርስቶስ። አባ ገዳስ/ ሚኒስትሮች/ፓስተሮች የጥንት ክርስቲያኖችን/አይሁዶችን ሙሉ በሙሉ ማጥፋት ከሚፈልጉ ከእስልምና ጋር ሲተባበሩ እግዚአብሔር ምን ይሰማዋል? መጽሐፍ ቅዱስ/ኦሪት ሙሉ በሙሉ ተደምስሷል፣ ኢየሱስን እንደ መለኮታዊ መጥፋት፣ የዋቄዮ-አላህን ዘላለማዊ ህግጋት ያስፋፉል (ፀረ አምላክ/የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ)።

በእስልምና ወንድማማችነት የለም። ለሙስሊሞች ሁሉም ሙስሊም ያልሆኑት “ሌላው” ናቸው እና መገደል አለባቸው።

ስለዚህ በክርስትና እና በእስልምና መካከል የሞራል እኩልነት የለም። ክርስቲያኖች የተቀደሱት በቅዱስ ቁርባን በተቀበሉት የክርስቶስ ሥጋ እና ደም ነው። ሙስሊሞች የተቀደሱት በተገደሉት የካፊሮች ደም ወደ ድንግልና ወደ ገነት የመግባት ዋስትና ነው።

እግዚአብሔር አለ ብለን ብንጠይቅ እንኳን ፤ እስልምና እግዚአብሔርን እና ትምህርቱን ባጠቃላይና ሙሉ በሙሉ አለመቀበል/መካድ ነው። አሁንም ለዚህ አገልግሎት የሚገድሉት እና የሚገደሉት የሐሰት አምላክ ዋቄዮአላህ አምላኪዎቹ ሙስሊሞች ወደጀነትአይወጡም ግን ወርደው መሀመድንና ጌታቸውን ሰይጣንን በገሃነም እሳት ውስጥ ይቀላቀላሉ። እጅግ በጣም ያሳዝናል፤ ግን ሐቁ ይህ ነው!

Addis Ababa – Saturday, October 22, 2022 (Week 42) St. Michael, St. Mattew

💭 We are in a war with satan directly as he ‘seeks his kingdom/ emirate/ ummah’ and the total annihilation of christians.

Today mankind is faced with 2 completely different persons:

The Sinless Jesus Christ and the false prophet Muhammad who suffered from sin, and 2 dramatically different Gods – The Almighty God of Moral Perfection Jesus and Allah (the AntiGod/ Antichrist.) By calling for more genocide of Christians and supporting Islam these wicked Aba Gedas/Ministers/Pastors have renounced God and have embraced Allah (the AntiGod/ Antichrist.)

Mankind has a choice between 2 Dramatically different Gods. On one hand The God of all peace, love, mercy and goodness (A God of Moral Perfection) or an evil Allah (the anti god/ Antichrist) of Extermination, genocide, assassination, murder, hate, Terror, torture, brutality, slavery, rape.

And 2 Completely Different Prophets

JESUS VERSUS MUHAMMAD

Jesus Christ was a true Prophet of peace and love, goodness and mercy.

False prophet Muhammad was a true prophet of extermination, murder, slaughter, rape, terror, torture, hate, slavery, child molestation. These are crimes

against humanity. These are crimes against The Almighy God.

Allah embracing Muslims terrorizing Christians, killing them, destroying their churches, kidnapping & raping their women, as divine, holy laws of Allah (the AntiGod/ Antichrist). What would God feel about Aba Gedas/Ministers/Pastors allying themselves with Islam which seeks the total annihilation of ancient Christians/Jews – the total obliteration of the Bible/Torah, – the total destruction of Jesus as divine, promoting eternal laws of Allah (the AntiGod). There is no brotherhood in islam. To Muslims – all non muslims are “The Other” and must be murdered.

So, there is no moral equivalence between Christianity and islam. Christians are Sanctified by the body and blood of christ received at HOLY COMMUNION. Muslims are sanctified by the blood of murdered kafirs guaranteeing accession to a virgin delight paradise.

Even if we ask that God exists, then Islam is a total and complete rejection of God and His teachings. Again, those Muslims who kill and are killed in the service of this bogus Allah are not going to ascend to paradise but will descend and join their founder Muhammad and his master Satan in the fires of hell.

፩ ሃሌ ሉያ። እግዚአብሔርን የሚፈራ፥ ትእዛዙንም እጅግ የሚወድድ ሰው ምስጉን ነው።

፪ ዘሩ በምድር ላይ ኃያል ይሆናል፤ የቅኖች ትውልድ ትባረካለች።

፫ ክብርና ባለጠግነት በቤቱ ነው፥ ጽድቁም ለዘላለም ይኖራል።

፬ ለቅኖች ብርሃን በጨለማ ወጣ፤ መሓሪና ይቅር ባይ ጻድቅም ነው።

፭ ቸር ሰው ይራራል ያበድራልም፥ በፍርድም ነገሩን ይፈጽማል።

፮ ለዘላለም አይናወጥም፤ የጻድቅ መታሰቢያ ለዘላለም ይኖራል።

፯ ከክፉ ነገር አይፈራም፤ በእግዚአብሔር ለመታመን ልቡ የጸና ነው።

፰ በጠላቶቹ ላይ እስኪያይ ድረስ ልቡ ጽኑ ነው፥ አይፈራም።

፱ በተነ ለችግረኞችም ሰጠ፤ ጽድቁ ለዘላለም ዓለም ይኖራል፤ ቀንዱ በክብር ከፍ ከፍ ይላል።

፲ ኃጢአተኛም አይቶ ይቈጣል፥ ጥርሱንም ያፋጫል፥ ይቀልጣልም፤ የኃጢአተኞችም ምኞት ትጠፋለች።

ጥንታዊው የደብረ ምሕረት ጨለቖት (ሀገረ ማርያም) ሥላሴ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ፣ ከባቢ መቐለ

፲፯፻፹፭/ 1785 .ም ተመሠረተ ❖❖❖

በ ፲፰/18ኛው መቶ ክፍለ ዘመን የተመሰረተው የተለያዩ ነዋያ ቅዱሳትን የያዘው የጨለቖት ቅድስት ሥላሴ ቤተ ክርስቲያን

ጨለቖት ትግራይ ክፍለ ሀገር በእንደርታ አውራጃ የሚገኝ ታሪካዊ ቦታ ነው። ይህ ቦታ ከመቀሌ በስተደቡብ ከሕንጣሎ ከተማ በስተሰሜን የሚገን ሲሆን እንደ ሰንሰለት በተያያዙ ተራራዎች የተከበበ ነው። የቦታው አቀማመጥ ወይና ደጋ ስለሆነ የአካባቢው አየር እንደየወቅቱ ይለዋወጣል። በክረምት ቀዝቃዛ ሲሆን በበጋ ወራት ደግሞ በጣም ይሞቃል።

በሰሜንና በደቡብ ጨለቖትን እየከፈለ ከምስራቅ ወይም ምዕራብ የሚፈስ ወንዝ አለ። ወንዙ በክረምት ወራት ይሞላል። በበጋ ግን መጠኑ የቀነሰ ውሃ የሚወርድበት ሲሆን ከሁለት ቦታ እየተነፈሰ ለመስኖ ተግባር ትልቅ አገልግሎት ይሰጣል።

የጨለቖት ነዋሪ ህዝብ ወንዙን ገድቦ የሚዘራቸው የእህል ዓይነቶች በቆሎ፣ ገብስ፣ ጢፍ፣ ስንዴ…የመሳሰሉት ሲሆን ከአትክልትና ፍራ ፍሬ ዓይነትም ጌሾ፣ ሽንኩርት፣ በርበሬ፣ ሎሚና ብርቱካን ወዘተ ተክሎ እያሳደገ ይጠቀማል።

ሀገረ ማርያም ❖

ጨለቖት መጀመሪያ “ሀገረ ማርያም” ይባል ነበር። ሀገረ ማርያም የተባለበት ምክኒያትም በ፲፫/13ኛው መቶ ክፍለ ዘመን የነበሩት አፄ ዐምደ ጽዮን ከጨለቖት በላይ ወደ ምስራቅ ባለ በሁለት ዳገት የተከበበ ጉድጓድ ቦታ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ሰርተው ታቦተ ማርያምን አስገብተው ሲያበቁ በዙርያዋ ያለውን መሬት በመስቀልና በዕጣን አስከልለው ያም ማለት መስቀልና ማዕጠነት ተይዞ የተሰጠው ርስት እየተዞረ ለታቦቲቱ አገልጋዮች ካህናት ማደሪያ ሰጥተው ሌሎች ባላባቶቹ ርስታችን ነው ብለው እንዳይካፈሉ በአዋጅና በውግዘት ይህች “ሀገረ ማርያም” ናት ብለው ስለሰየሟት “ሀገረ ማርያም” ተብላለች። ዳግመኛም ዐፄ ዘርዐ ያዕቆብ ግማደ መስቀሉን ይዘው ሲመጡ ጨለቖት ውስጥ ስላደሩ መስቀሉ ያረፈበት ቦታ እስካሁን ድረስ ቤተ መስቀል ይባላል።

ታላቅ ራእይ የተገለጸበት ሱባኤ ❖

መምህር ገብረ ሥላሴ ማዶ ጭኽ በሚባል የቅዱሳን መጸለያ ቦታ ሱባኤ ገብተው ሲጸልዩ ከሰማይ ጀምሮ ቤተ ክርስቲያን እስከሚሠራበት ቦታ ቀስተ ደመና ተተክሎ ሦስት ጌቶች ቅዱሳን መላእክትን አስከትለው ሲወርዱና ቀስተ ደመናው በቆመበት ቦታ ሲያርፍ በራዕይ አዶ እርሳቸውም በሱባኤያቸው ወጥተው ያዩትን አምላካዊ ራእይ ለደጃዝማች ወልደ ሥላሴ ለብቻቸው ነገሯዋቸው። ደጃዝማችም በነገሩ እየተደሰቱ ከመምህር ጋር ሆነው ከሕንጣሎ ከተማ ወደ ሰሜን አቅጣጫ አፍጎል ወደ ሚባለው ቦታ መጥተው ከአደጉበት ጀመሮ እስከ ባሕርያቱ ድረስ በጥድና፣ በወይራ፣ በዋንዛም… የተሸነፈ ታላቅ ወንዝ አገኙ። መምህሩ እየመሩ በጫካው ውስጥ ለውስጥ አብረው ሲጓዙ ወለል ያለ መልክ ባዩ ጊዜ “ዝየ ይትሐነጽ ቤተ እግዚአብሔር”…ማለት የእግዚአብሔር ማመስገኛ ቤተ መቅደስ ከዚህ ይሠራል፤ በዚህ መልክ መካከል ያለው ቆት የሚባለው ትልቅ ዛፍም በጠቅላላ ለቤተ ክርስቲያኑ መዝጊያና መስኮት ይበቃል ብለው ነገርዋቸው።

ያን ጊዜ ቆት በሚባለው ትልቁ ዛፍ ስርም ሁለት አንበሶች ተኝተውበት ነበርና ደጃዝማች ወልደ ሥላሴ ደንግጠው ጦር ወርውረው ሁለቱን ገደሉዋቸው። በዱሩ ውስጥ ተሰውሮ ሲጸልይ የነበረው ባሕታዊ ወጥቶ መላእክት ገደልህ እንጂ እናብስት አልገደልህም ንስሐ ግባ ብሏቸው ተሰወረ። እርሳቸውም መምህራን በወሰኑላቸው ቀኖና መሠረት ኃጢአታቸውን ለማስተሰረይ ንስሐ ገብተናል ከዚህ በኋላ በአዋጅ በተሰበሰበው ሕዝብ ጫካው ተመንጥሮ ቆት የሚባው ትልቁ ዛፍ ተቆረጠ። ቤተ ክርስቲያኑ የሚሠራበት ቦታ ተስተካክሎ ተደለደለ።

የቤተ ክርስቲያኑ ሕንጻ መመሥረት ❖

በዘመነ ማቴዎስ ሰኞ መስከረም ፱/9 ቀን 1785 .ም በጠቢባኑ መሪነት ከሦስት ክፍል ተከፍሎና ተለክቶ መሠረቱ ተቆፈረ የመሠረቱ ጥልቀት አስር ሜትር ሆኖ በጥቁር ድንጋይ ከተነጠፈ በኋላ በላይ ላይ አሞሌ ጨው እንደ ብሎኬት ተደርድሮ በንጣፍነት ተሠራ። እንዲህ የተደረገበት ምክንያትም ቤተ ክርስቲያኑ የተሠራባቸው ዕንጨት ነክ የሆኑ እቃዎችና ዐምደ ወርቆች በምስጥ እንዳይበሉ ለመከላከል ነው። የቤተ ክርስቲያኑ መቅንና መድረክ ገብን መዝጊያ እንዲሁ በልዩ ልዩ ጌጥ የተሠሩ አአማድ የተዘጋጁት ከተቆረጠው ትልቁ የቆት ዛፍ ስለሆነ አናጢዎቹና ሠራተኞቹ ሕዝቡም ሁሉ ዛፍን ጨለቖት እያሉ በትግርና ቋንቋ አደነቁት “ጨለቖት” ማለት በአማርኛ ቋንቋ መልካም ቆት ማለት ነው፤ በብዙ ቀን በኋላም ቃሉን መሠረት በማድረግ ያገሩ ስም ጨለቖት ተብሎ ተጠራ።

የቤተ ክርስቲያኑ ውስጣዊና አፍአዊ ቅርጽ ❖

የቤተ ክርስቲያኑ ዙሪያ ክብ ሆኖ በሦስት ክፍል የተከፈለ ነው። ውስጣዊ ክፍል ቤተ መቅደስ መካከለኛው ቅድስት ሦስተኛው ደግሞ ቅኔ ማኅሌት ይባላል። ቤተ መቅደሱ ጸሎተ ቅዳሴ የሚደርስበት ቅዱስ ቁርባንና መስዋዕት የሚቀርብበት ነው። ከቀዳስያን በቀር ሌላ ሰው አይገባበትም። ሁለተኛው ክፍል ቅድስትም ቀሳውስትና ዲያቆናት ሰዓታትና ስብሐተ ፍቁር የሚያደርሱበት ምዕመናንም የኅሊና ጸሎት የሚጸልዩበት ነው። ቅኔ ማህሌቱም ሊቃውንትና መዘመራን ያሬዳዊ ማኅሌት የሚያደርሱበት ምዕመናንም የሚጸልዩበት ነው። በጉልላት ላይም ታላቅ መስቀል አለበት።

ቤተ ክርስቲያኑ ሊሠራ ሲል ወልደ ሥላሴ ታመው ስለነበር ፍጻሜውን ሳያዩ እንዳይሞቱ ከመስጋታቸው የተነሳ ሥራው በተጀመረበት ዓመት እንዲያልቅ ስለወሰኑ ወደ ላይ ያለው ከፍታ ከስፋቱ ጋር የተመዛዘነ አይደለም። ስለዚህ የተፈለገውን ያህል ወደ ላይ ሳይረዝም ባጭሩ ጥራው አልቆ ማክሰኞ ሐምሌ ፬/4 ቀን 1785 .ም ታቦቱ ገባ። የቅዳሴ ቤቱ በዓልም በታላቅ ክብር ከተከበረ በኋላ የቤተ ክርስቲያኑ ስመ ማዕረግ “ደብረ ተድላ” ተብሎ ተሰየመ።

የቤተ መቅደሱ የግድግዳ ላይ ሥዕል ❖

የቤተ ክርስቲያኑ ስዕል የተሳለው ሠዓሊ አለቃ ኃይሉ በተባሉ ባለሙያ ነው። የተሳለውም ከሌላው ቦታ በተለየ መልኩ የመቅደሱና የቅድስቱ የውጭ ግድግዳ በሙሉ ሲሆን በቅድስቱ የውጭ ግድግዳ ዙሪያ የተሳለው አቡቀለምሲስ ዮሐንስ ያየው ራእይ ሁሉ ነው። በተለይም ከመቅደሱ ፊት ለፊት የምስለ ፍቁር ወልዳ ሥዕል ዕፁብ ድንቅ በሆነ ህብረ ቀለም የተሳለ ሲሆን በተለያዩ ጊዜ በመሰሉና ረዘም ያለ ጊዜ በመውሰዱ የራስ ወልደ ሥላሴ ስም አንዳንድ ጊዜ ደጃዝማች አንዳንድ ጊዜ ደግሞ ራስ እየተባለ ተጽፎአል። በግድግዳው ላይ ብቻ ሳይሆን በየበሮቹ ላይ ያሉት ስዕሎች ሁሉ ሳይቀሩ ለተመልካች እጅግ የሚያስደንቁ ሆኖ ይታያል፡፤ የቤተክርስቲያኑ ሥ ዕልና በመስከረም ወር ፲፱፻፸፮/1976 .ም ተጀመሮ በ፯/7 ዓመታት ተፈጽሟል ይባላል።

በትናንትናው ዕለት ኮፕት ክርስቲያኖች፡ ከእንባ እና ደስታ ጋር፡ ለዎቹ ኮፕት ሰማዕታት አካላት ዕረፍትጧቸው።

የታረደውን አባቱን ፎቶ የሚነካው ክርስቲያን ህፃን ልጅ በጣም ያስለቅሳል።

የዲያብሎስ ልጆች ሞራላችንን ለመስበርና እኛን ክርስቲያኖችን ለማዋረድ ሞክረዋል፤ አልተሳካላቸውም፤ የመዋረጃቸውና ደም የማልቀሻቸው ጊዜ ተቃርቧል፡ ወዮላቸው!

የነገውን የ”ዕርገት ዕለት” ለሰይጣን ረመዳን መጀመሪያ ዕለት ማድረጋቸውም ብዙ ነገር ነው የሚጠቁመን።


Tears And Joy As Egyptian Christians Killed In Libya Laid To Rest


Tears mixed with joy on Tuesday as the remains of 20 Christians were laid to rest in Egypt’s Minya province more than three years after they were kidnapped and beheaded in Libya in an attack that provoked rare Egyptian air strikes.

The return of the bodies of 20 Egyptian Copts has brought families in rural Egypt a chance for some closure after years in mourning with little hope of having the bodies of their loved ones being recovered for burial.

“Everyone stood beside the martyr that belongs to him and cried a little, but they were tears of longing, nothing more,” said Bishri Ibrahim, father of Kerolos, one of the victims, at the funeral service at a church in the village of al-Our in Minya province, where they were all laid to rest.

“But we are happy and joyful that they have returned to the village. This is a blessing for the country and to all Copts all over the world,” he added.

Thirteen of the 21 Libya victims came from al-Our, a rural town of around 10,000 people south of Cairo.

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi ordered the Church, named The Church of the Martyrs of Faith and Homeland, to be built soon after the incident and dedicated in their memory.

Sisi also ordered a wave of air strikes on the Islamic State’s militant bases in Libya.

The remains of the victims, who were flown from Libya about a private jet to Cairo on Monday night, were placed inside cylinder-shaped containers covered in velvet cloth with the names of each victim and interred under the church altar.

Families said the burial place would be opened as a shrine for visitors.

The victims had been among the many poor Egyptians who risked their lives to find work in the lawless chaos of Libya following the downfall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and civil war.

A video posted by Islamic State in January 2015 showed 21 people — 20 Egyptian Copts and one Ghanaian Christian — lined up on a Libyan beach in orange jumpsuits before they were executed.

“I wanted to see Milad come back from Libya on his feet after his struggle and hard work to earn a living in a harsh life abroad,” 55-year-old Zaki Hanna, the father of one of the victims.

“But thanks be to God, he died a hero, did not beg anyone to spare his life and he and his brothers, the martyrs, did not abandon their faith or homeland.”

Bashir Estephanos, whose two younger brothers were killed by Islamic State in Libya, said all Christians in al-Our village had been praying for the past three years for the bodies of the “martyrs” to be found.

Libyan authorities recovered the bodies in October after the area where they were buried was recaptured from the militant Islamist group.

“Our prayers were answered, so thanks be to God from the bottom of our hearts,” he said, speaking before the bodies arrived in the village.

The head of the Coptic Church in Egypt, Pope Tawadros II, was at the airport to receive the remains when they arrived in Cairo on Monday night.

Ethiopia Is An Outlier In The Orthodox Christian World

Ethiopia has the largest Orthodox Christian population outside Europe, and, by many measures, Orthodox Ethiopians have much higher levels of religious commitment than do Orthodox Christians in the faith’s heartland of Central and Eastern Europe.

The country in the Horn of Africa has 36 million Orthodox Christians, the world’s second-largest Orthodox population after Russia.

Religiosity

Nearly all Orthodox Ethiopians (98%) say religion is very important to them, compared with a median of 34% of Orthodox saying this across 13 countries surveyed in Central and Eastern Europe. About three-quarters of Orthodox Ethiopians say they attend church every week (78%), compared with a median of 10% in Central and Eastern Europe and just 6% in Russia.

Religious Symbols

Orthodox Ethiopians are more likely than Orthodox Christians in Central and Eastern Europe to wear religious symbols (93% vs. median of 64%), to say they believe in God with absolute certainty (89% vs. 56%), to fast during holy times such as Lent (87% vs. 27%), and to tithe (57% vs. 14%). Indeed, these gaps between Orthodox Christians in Ethiopia and Europe mirror broader differences in religious commitment between people living in sub-Saharan Africa, where religious observance is relatively high among all major religious groups, and those in more secular societies in Central and Eastern Europe.

Moral Issues

Orthodox Ethiopians also tend to be more conservative on social issues than are other Orthodox Christians surveyed; they express higher levels of moral opposition to homosexuality, prostitution, abortion, divorce and drinking alcohol. For instance, Orthodox Ethiopians are much more likely to say that having an abortion is morally wrong than are Orthodox Christians in Central and Eastern Europe (83% vs. median of 46%).

Orthodox Christians do not make up a majority of Ethiopia’s overall population: 43% of Ethiopians are Orthodox, while approximately 19% are Protestant and 35% are Muslim. Still, in 2010, the 36 million Orthodox Christians in Ethiopia made up about 14% of the world’s total Orthodox population (compared with a 76% share in Central and Eastern Europe), up from about 3 million in 1910, when Orthodox Ethiopians made up 3% of the Orthodox total. This increase is owed mainly to natural growth in Ethiopia’s population, which rose from 9 million to 83 million between 1910 and 2010.

Ethiopian Orthodoxy is part of the Oriental branch of Orthodoxy, which accounts for approximately 20% of the global Orthodox population and is not in communion with Eastern Orthodoxy, the larger branch, largely due to theological and doctrinal differences.

Muslims Butcher 28 Christians While Thousands Of Christians Gather Together Declaring They Will Never Be Conquered By Islam’s Satanic Religion

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 27, 2017

Christian Copts are the most stubborn Christians on earth. You will never find a Coptic Christian convert to Islam under duress. So how did the Christians of Egypt react when Muslim terrorists attacked a bus full of Christians killing twenty eight Christians traveling on the road to the St. Samuel Monastery in the Minya? In the Middle East and from ancient times, in a wedding they make this sound they call “Zaghareet” (Ululation):

Of course, the bodies are brought into the church at the sounds of women making these very sounds while mothers wail and the priests sing with joy. The Martyrs brought in the church then the procession is a joyous one. Copts show Muslims that their martyrs are in a wedding of a different type than Muslims having weddings with virgins with carnal joys. Here is how they present the bride of Christ:

And of course, the funeral for the Christian martyrs presenting them to Christ:

While some in the West might see these scenes as foreign to them, I remind; being made in God’s image and likeness means that we have within ourselves the creative nature of God. Copts bow to the martyrs. They make icons of them.

Yet I have people comment that icons and bowing are acts of worship.

I chuckle at such statements from people who are oblivious to the Bible. God creates, so we create and is why God required the Israelites to make 3-d icons of angels on the Ark and even Joshua bowed face down towards it:

Joshua and the elders of Israel tore their clothing in dismay, threw dust on their heads, and bowed face down to the ground before the Ark of the LORD until evening (Joshua 7:6).

If bowing was worship, why then when two angels approach Lot in the gateway of the city of Sodom, Lot sees them and he “bowed with his face to the ground.”

No objection from the angel. Why? Because you are supposed to bow.

When Abigal saw David, she quickly got off her donkey and bowed down before David with her face to the ground. She fell at his feet.”

And I ask; did Lot get rebuke from the angels? Did David rebuke Abigal?

NEVER.

Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown” (Numbers 22:31).

No rebuke.

I can show several examples.

There are even verses that speak of human statues and God ordered it (hint, its in Ezekiel’s temple).

This alone blows away all what the scoffers say. Every day I read poorly written comments and its sad.

But will these people heed? I guess not. Why? Because perhaps they are tares. A tare thinks its wheat. Us saying this diminishes our donations, but who cares.

People kiss the hand of the priest and the priest washed my feet.

Is that an act of worship? No.

May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you.” (Gen 27:29)

There are a ton of verses that debunk these claims:

The company of the prophets from Jericho, who were watching, said, ‘The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha.’ And they went to meet him and bowed to the ground before him.”

When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah, the king stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down on his throne.”

So what say the tare? Are these so westernized that they lost the postures of respect, honor and duty?

Did they forget “blessed are the meek and humble at heart”?

The issue is not scripture, the issue is the lack of desire to search the scripture.

So likewise, all of these martyrs are icons of Christ, just like all of the martyrs of old who were depicted in Christendom’s paintings.

But in the West many object to having icons of martyrs. Where are the statues of the martyrs, where are the paintings of their contests, over which they conquered and for which they received their crowns of glory?

EVERYONE HAS ICONS. Why do we have statues of presidents, politicians, feminists and explorers, yet we do not dare inundate the society with the images that would reminds us of the most important thing? that is, the realization that we are not here for ourselves, that our “bodies are members of Christ” (1 Corinthians 6:15), that “you are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19), that we are given a destiny that breaks through the physical, the beautiful purpose to stand in the midst of this capricious world, as a beacon of order, as an exemplifier of harmony, as a living candle that shines with the unseen light that repulses the infernal spirits naked to the eye, and pulls in those whose souls are parched by the waves of the watery abyss, into the bright rays of the Holy Cross, so that we can say with the Gospel, “people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.” (Matthew 4:16) It is that sublime purpose, to be an icon.

As icons, we fight the idols by creating beautiful art, art that teaches the Faith through wonder and majesty. Look to the Church, and you will see beautiful paintings and images of Crosses. Oh, how the devil’s hate such art, because they — with their immaculate imagery — instill in us a sense of Christian identity, and constantly remind us that we are in Christ, and are not to be dictated by the trends of this world. This is why the wicked and evil atheists and Muslims are always pushing for governments to censor any sort of Christian imagery and expression. They want us to be devoid of icons, to forget our hope, and to place our faith in idolatry of the self. I have heard people say that crosses, church bells, Christian paintings and statues, are idols.

But the hatred against the icons is the real idolatry. For to make a society devoid of Christian imagery, is to enable the enemy to replace the icons with true idols, with the worship of celebrities, of buildings, of politicians, of false prophets. Man, by his very nature, venerates. Take away the icons and he will venerate himself, he will venerate other men, he will venerate Mammon, he will venerate the devil. But restore the holy icons and you will see Christendom revive. The icons will be everywhere, and even the least religious person will see it and feel within himself a small measure of awe, enough to compel him to express his gratitude to the One Who died for Him. Embellish the earth with holy icons, and man will be reminded of what is sacred, man will come to contemplation, and with contemplation comes wonder and inspiration, and from this does the person know that he is but an icon himself, a window into Heaven, who is to shine so brightly that men will worship their Father in Heaven.

Christians Are Under Attack In The Middle East – And Not Even A Visit From The Pope Can Convince Them To Stay

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 27, 2017

Egyptian Coptic Christians hold crosses and pray during a protest in Cairo

In the British mandate of Palestine, the Christian population was 9.6 per cent of the population. By 1999, it was 2.9 per cent. Meanwhile, 35 per cent of the Christians of the West Bank and Gaza left between 1967 and 1999

Almost exactly a quarter of a century ago, I wrote a story for the front page of what was then The Independent’s Weekend Review. It was headlined: “Exodus: a story of Christians”. It told the tragedy of those people of the faith who were fleeing the lands of the forefathers.

I interviewed the only hermit left in Lebanon, in a cave in the north of the country, and he said to me: “I am the only hermit left in all the Middle East.” His eyes creased in happiness when I acknowledged his unique theological condition. “I will never leave Lebanon,” he said. “No Christian should leave the Holy Land. Those who have left will come back.

He exuded faith: childlike, passionate, precise, untramelled by contradiction or facts. And he was wrong.

As I wrote at the time – from Iraq, from the West Bank, from Lebanon and from Egypt, “probably” (that was my word then) from Syria, too – the Christians were leaving. A community of 14 million people, the inheritors of the original, eastern church of Christ, were draining away from lands now inhabited by up to 160 million Muslims.

Today, the Copts of Egypt alone may be as many as 15 million, but they make up only 10 per cent of the population. Under attack from Islamists, they are leaving for the West in huge numbers – which is one reason the Pope lands in Egypt on Thursday in the hope (a plaintiff one, I fear) that Christians and Muslims can take violence out of religion. We pretend to care very much for these Christians, of course. (Indeed, we care so much that even the new American President, Donald Trump, was too frightened to call the 1915 slaughter of one and a half million Armenian Christians a genocide this week.)

I was much moved some two years ago, in the little Syrian town of Qamishleh, by the local priests and bishops of the Maronite (Catholic), Armenian and Orthodox churches who pleaded with me to stop suggesting that the Christians should seek sanctuary in the West. If they went to Canada or America or Europe, they said, they will become part of a secular world in which they would lose their faith. This should not be the fate of the Christians of the Middle East.

But, after 44 Christian Copts were killed in two church bombings in Egypt this month, can they stay? When Christian Copts are murdered in Sinai, can they stay? When Isis in Iraq tells them to convert or die, can they stay?

By 1999, only 10 per cent of the people of Jerusalem were Christian. Just 30 per cent of Nazareth’s population of 172,000 were Christian.

In the British mandate of Palestine, the Christian population was 9.6 per cent of the population. By 1999, it was 2.9 per cent. Meanwhile, 35 per cent of the Christians of the West Bank and Gaza left between 1967 and 1999. And Christianity is supposed to be one of the world’s great religions.

Pope Francis makes surprise appearance at TED Talk

She would not accept this. “And we were defeated later by different people and with different tools,” she replied. “I’m not the person who would say ‘Oh we should overcome this’. I think people do have their differences. And it’s important to look and analyse and try to see why people have their differences and how they can run these differences through time and in different situations. But I think that both sides are responsible for this.”

What will the Pope say that? Or to the Grand Imam of Al Azhar in Cairo, Sheikh Ahmad al-Tayeb? Will they be up to the task of self-incrimination?

My Note: ISLAM + PROTESTANTISM + SECULARISM = PAGANISM is at war against ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY. We shall know whether CATHOLICS had joined them during the Pope’s visit to Egypt. Not as a Pope, but just as a Christian, will he be able to call the demon-possessed followers of Mohammad for what they are, and invite them into The House of The Lord to be saved? Instead of sugarcoating the Muslim persecutors with the usual boaring message, like “reconciliation with all the children of Abraham“, will he simply able to warn them to stop persecuting children of The Lord Jesus Christ?

The above article supports my thoughts expressed a couple of days ago:

I believe it’s is irresponsible, biased and dangerous that a protestant organization like OpenDoors“ placed Christian Ethiopia at number 22 on the World Watch List of Christian persecution – mind you, higher than notorious Christian persecutor states like Turkey, Palestinian Territories, Algeria, Kuwait, UAE, Indonesia, Bangladesh etc. Either they are ignorant and wicked or they have joined the luciferian forces to wage war against Orthodox Christians. It must be tempting for Satan to challenge the first Christian nation!

How primitive and boaring it has become that OpenDoors always puts North Korea (a Buddhist nation that doesn’t belong to Christians) at number 1 to appease the number one persecutors of Christians: Islamic countries. where Christians are indigenous.

Christian Genocide | Turks Tore The Pregnant Woman’s Womb, Took Off The Baby And Put It On Her Breast“

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 24, 2017

I was a 6-year-old child when my mother entrusted me to the American orphanage and promised to take me back. There was an Armenian church outside the orphanage fence where Turks often appeared and tormented Armenian women and children. When those people looked inside our windows, we tremulously ran away. One of the orphans, Sako, once called us to watch what was going on beyond the fence. It was awful…

Turks tore the pregnant woman’s womb, took off the baby and put it on her breast. I fainted…When I opened my eyes, the orphans had surrounded me telling terrible stories with frightened looks. I closed my ears and screamed.” Her mother found her after the massacres, and they moved together to the village of Basargechar where she married Yeghishe Markosian and gave birth to 11 children. She died in 1990.

Denial is The Final Stage of Genocide

Within in a 2-year period 1.5 million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were massacred by the Turkish. To this day it is illegal to talk about the Armenian Genocide in Turkey.

On April 25, 1915 through a series of brutal events, the Turkish government began their execution of the Armenians. The Turks burned, drowned, starved, crucified and slaughtered in the pursuit to eliminate christian Armenians.

There had always been trouble between the Christian Armenians and the Turks in the Ottoman Empire. The Armenians were taxed more for being Christian, and often not treated fairly. They turned to Russia for freedom and independence. It was during World War I, that the Armenians sided with Russia against Turkey, in response came the Genocide.

Today, April 24th marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Still a century later people refuse to acknowledge the massacres as a genocide including the Turks. Many spoke out, showing their support as the anniversary approached including Germany, the European Parliament, Pope Francis, François Hollande the French president and Vladimir Putin.

Armenian President Serzh Sarksyan spoke the following statement: “Recognition of the genocide is a triumph of human conscience and justice over intolerance and hatred.”

What happened to the Armenians during World War I inspired Hitler during World War II in his genocide of the Jewish people. Hitler spoke to the commanding generals at Obersalzberg on August 22, 1939 and declared:

I have issued the command – and I’ll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad – that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formations in readiness – for the present only in the East – with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”
