እግዚአብሔር ልባቸው ለተሰበረ ቅርብ ነው፥ መንፈሳቸው የተሰበረውንም ያድናቸዋል

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 14, 2021

እግዚአብሔር አምላኩ የሚሆንለት ሕዝብ ምስጉን ነው፥ እርሱ ለርስቱ የመረጠው ሕዝብ። እግዚአብሔር የአሕዛብን ምክር ያጠፋል፥ የአሕዛብንም አሳብ ይመልሳል። ኃጢአተኞችን ክፋት ይገድላቸዋል ጻድቃንንም የሚጠሉ ይጸጸታሉ።

[መዝሙረ ዳዊት ምዕራፍ ፴፪]

፩ ጻድቃን ሆይ፥ በእግዚአብሔር ደስ ይበላችሁ፤ ለቅኖች ምስጋና ይገባል።

፪ እግዚአብሔርን በመሰንቆ አመስግኑት፥ አሥር አውታርም ባለው በበገና ዘምሩለት።

፫ አዲስ ቅኔም ተቀኙለት፥ በእልልታም መልካም ዝማሬ ዘምሩ፤

፬ የእግዚአብሔር ቃል ቅን ነውና ሥራውም ሁሉ በእምነት ነውና።

፭ ጽድቅንና ፍርድን ይወድዳል፤ የእግዚአብሔር ቸርነት ምድርን ሞላች።

፮ በእግዚአብሔር ቃል ሰማዮች ጸኑ፥ ሠራዊታቸውም ሁሉ በአፉ እስትንፋስ፤

፯ የባሕርን ውኃ እንደ ረዋት የሚሰበስበው፥ ቀላዮችንም በመዝገቦች የሚያኖራቸው።

፰ ምድር ሁሉ እግዚአብሔርን ትፍራው፥ በዓለም የሚኖሩ ሁሉም ከእርሱ የተነሣ ይደንግጡ።

፱ እርሱ ተናግሮአልና፥ ሆኑም፤ እርሱ አዘዘ፥ ጸኑም።

፲ እግዚአብሔር የአሕዛብን ምክር ያጠፋል፥ የአሕዛብንም አሳብ ይመልሳል።

፲፩ የእግዚአብሔር ምክር ግን ለዘላለም ይኖራል። የልቡም አሳብ ለልጅ ልጅ ነው።

፲፪ እግዚአብሔር አምላኩ የሚሆንለት ሕዝብ ምስጉን ነው፥ እርሱ ለርስቱ የመረጠው ሕዝብ።

፲፫ እግዚአብሔር ከሰማይ ተመለከተ፥ የሰውንም ልጆች ሁሉ አየ።

፲፬ ከማደሪያው ቦታ ሆኖ በምድር ወደሚኖሩ ሁሉ ተመለከተ፥

፲፭ እርሱ ብቻውን ልባቸውን የሠራ ሥራቸውንም ሁሉ የሚያስተውል።

፲፮ ንጉሥ በሠራዊቱ ብዛት አይድንም ኃያልም በኃይሉ ብዛት አያመልጥም።

፲፯ ፈረስም ከንቱ ነው፥ አያድንም፤ በኃይሉም ብዛት አያመልጥም።

፲፰ እነሆ፥ የእግዚአብሔር ዓይኖች ወደሚፈሩት ናቸው፥ በምሕረቱም ወደሚታመኑ፥

፲፱ ነፍሳቸውን ከሞት ያድን ዘንድ፥ በራብም ጊዜ ይመግባቸው ዘንድ።

፳ ነፍሳችን እግዚአብሔርን ተስፋ ታደርገዋለች፥ ረዳታችንና መጠጊያችን እርሱ ነውና።

፳፩ ልባችን በእርሱ ደስ ይለዋልና፥ በቅዱስ ስሙም ታምነናልና።

፳፪ አቤቱ፥ ምሕረትህ በላያችን ትሁን፥ በአንተ እንደ ታመንን።

ኅዳር ፳፩ ጽዮን ማርያም

[መዝሙረ ዳዊት ምዕራፍ ፻፴፪]

፲፫ እግዚአብሔር ጽዮንን መርጦአታልና፥ ማደሪያውም ትሆነው ዘንድ ወድዶአታልና፥ እንዲህ ብሎ።

፲፬ ይህች ለዘላለም ማረፊያዬ ናት፤ መርጫታለሁና በዚህች አድራለሁ።

፲፭ አሮጊቶችዋን እጅግ እባርካለሁ፥ ድሆችዋንም እንጀራ አጠግባለሁ።

፲፮ ካህናቶችዋንም ደኅንነትን አለብሳቸዋለሁ፥ ቅዱሳኖችዋም እጅግ ደስ ይላቸዋል።

፲፯ በዚያ ለዳዊት ቀንድን አበቅላለሁ፥ ለቀባሁትም ሰው መብራትን አዘጋጃለሁ።

፲፰ ጠላቶችንም እፍረትን አለብሳቸዋለሁ፤ በእርሱ ግን ቅድስናዬ ያብባል።

Many Believe Ethiopia Was The First Country To Accept Christianity – Now For Some It Is Being Outlawed

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 24, 2017

Christianity could be outlawed in Ethiopia for smaller congregations and house churches where worshipers meet for less formal prayer or smaller services.

Tigray State, in the north of Ethiopia, is considering changing its laws to ban Christian activities outside official church compounds, reports World Watch Monitor.

Evangelical Christians and other non-Orthodox groups would be the worst hit by the new law, which will set a minimum number of 6,000 members for any church wanted to authorized as official. Proselytism outside the new official compounds will be outlawed.

A similar law has already been enacted in a neighboring state.

Ethiopia, Africa’s oldest independent country, is believed by some to have been the first nation in the world to accept Christianity as its religion. Like many countries in Africa, the religious landscape is being changed by fast-growing Pentecostal churches.

It is currently at number 22 on the World Watch List of Christian persecution.

Christian believers are increasingly threatened by Islamist extremists.

WWM tells the story of Tutu, a widow, and her son who live in a mainly Muslim area and have faced difficulties since her husband died.

‘After his burial, local Muslims dug up his body and dumped it by the side of the road. In January, Biruk was assaulted and told that he and his mother would continue to face trouble until they converted to Islam. On March 4, their house was burned down,’ reports WWM.


My Note: I would be more than glad if those “evangelical Christians” were converting Muslims to Christianity. But, no!– though there may be individual Protestants who really love Our Lord and engage in this sort of conversion activity – the vast majority of them attempts to proselytize among Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo faithful, who are already Christians that practice the oldest of all Christian rites. (Converting these ancient Christians to any other faith/ideology is a HUGE SIN). Imagine these Protestants, who have discovered Jesus 500 years ago, telling Ethiopian Christians who know Their Lord for two Millennia to accept the new Jesus. Is there a new Lord?

In fact, in some Muslim majority regions like Jimma, some Protestant groups had joined Muslims to persecute indigenous Orthodox Christians.

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.
