ጰ ፦ ብሂል ጰራቅሊጦስ መንፈሰ ጽድቅ ፥ ጰራቅሊጦስ እውነተኛ መንፈስ ቅዱስ ነው

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 20, 2021

❖❖❖ እንኳን ለበዓለ ጰራቅሊጦስ አደረሰን!❖❖❖

ጰራቅሊጦስ የሚለው ቃል ከሦስቱ አካላት አንዱ የኾነው የእግዚአብሔር መንፈስ ቅዱስ መጠሪያ ስም ሲኾን፣ ትርጕሙም በጽርዕ (ግሪክ) ቋንቋ፦

❖ ናዛዚ (የሚናዝዝ)

❖ መጽንዒ (የሚያጸና)

❖ መስተፍሥሒ (የሚያስደስት) ማለት ነው።

መንፈስ ቅዱስ ለሐዋርያት በወረደበት ዕለት በቤተ ክርስቲያን የሚከበረው ይህ በዓል ‹በዓለ ጰራቅሊጦስ› ወይም ‹በዓለ ጰንጠቆስጤ› በመባል ይታወቃል። ‹ጰንጠቆስጤ› በግሪክ ቋንቋ በዓለ ኀምሳ፣ የፋሲካ ኀምሳኛ ዕለት፣ በዓለ ሠዊት (የእሸት፣ የመከር በዓል) ማለት ነው (ኪዳነ ወልድ ክፍሌ፣ ገጽ ፱፻፮-፱፻፯)።

ጌታችን አምላካችንና መድኀኒታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ካረገ በኋላ እመቤታችን ቅድስት ድንግል ማርያም፣ ዐሥራ ሁለቱ ደቀ መዛሙርት፣ ሰባ ሁለቱ አርድእት፣ አምስት መቶው ባልንጀሮች እና ሠላሳ ስድስቱ ቅዱሳት አንስት በኢየሩሳሌም ከተማ በአንድነት ኾነው በጸሎት ይተጉ ነበር።

ጌታችን በሚያርግበት ጊዜ “እነሆ አባቴ የሰጠውን ተስፋ እኔ እልክላችኋለሁ፤ እናንተ ግን ከላይ ኃይል እስክትለብሱ ድረስ በኢየሩሳሌም ከተማ ቆዩ፤” ሲል ለሐዋርያቱ በሰጣቸው የተስፋ ቃል መሠረት በዐረገ በዐሥረኛው ቀን መንፈስ ቅዱስን ልኮላቸዋል (ሉቃ. ፳፬፥፵፱)። ዅሉም በአንድ ቦታ ተሰባስበው ሳሉ በበዓለ ጰራቅሊጦስ ማለዳ እንደ ዐውሎ ነፋስ ያለ ድምፅ ድንገት ከሰማይ ወርዶ የነበሩበትን ቤት ሞላው። ከዚያም የተከፋፈሉ የእሳት ላንቃዎች በዅሉም ላይ አረፉባቸው። በዚህ ጊዜ ዅላቸውም መንፈስ ቅዱስ ባደላቸው መጠን በየአገሩ ቋንቋዎች ዅሉ ተናገሩ (ሐዋ.፪፥፩-፬)።

ጌታችን መንፈስ ቅዱስን ለሐዋርያት የላከበት ይህ ዐቢይ በዓል ዐሥራቱን፣ በኵራቱን፣ ቀዳምያቱን ካህናተ ኦሪት ስለሚቀበሉበት በብሉይ ኪዳን በዓለ ሠዊት ተብሎ ይከበር ነበር። በሐዲስ ኪዳን ደግሞ ቅዱሳን ሐዋርያት መንፈስ ቅዱስን ስለ ተቀበሉበት በበዓለ ሠዊት ምትክ በዓለ ጰራቅሊጦስ ገብቶበታል። የበዓለ ትንሣኤ መነሻው የአይሁድ የፋሲካ በዓል ማለትም በግብጽ፣ እስራኤል ከሞት የዳኑበት የመታሰቢያ በዓል እንደ ኾነው ዅሉ፣ ለበዓለ ጰራቅሊጦስም መነሻው ይኸው የአይሁድ የፋሲካ በዓል ነው። የአይሁድ ፋሲካ ከተከበረ ከሰባት ሳምንታት በኋላ በኀምሳኛው ቀን የሩቆቹ ከከተሙበት ወጥተው፣ የቅርቦቹ ከተሰባሰቡበት ተገናኝተው ለበዓሉ ፍጻሜ የሚኾነውን በዓለ ሠዊት (የእሸት በዓል) ያከብሩ ነበር።

ሐዋርያት በጽርሐ ጽዮን ተሰባስበው ሳሉ መንፈስ ቅዱስ በእሳት አምሳል ወርዶ ሰማያዊ ሀብትን፣ ዕውቀትና ጸጋን አድሏቸዋል። መንፈስ ቅዱስ ከወረደላቸው በኋላም በአእምሮ ጐልምሰዋል፤ ጥቡዓን (ቈራጦች)፣ ጽኑዓን ኾነዋል፤ ለስብከተ ወንጌል የሚፋጠኑበትንና ለሰማዕትነት የሚዘጋጁበትን ልቡና ታድለዋል።

ቅድስት በኾነች በጽርሐ ጽዮን በሐዋርያት ላይ የወረደው የእግዚአብሔር አብ ጸጋ፣ የእግዚአብሔር ወልድ ፍቅር፣ የእግዚአብሔር መንፈስ ቅዱስ አንድነት በዅላችን ላይ ይደር፤ እጽፍ ድርብም ይኹን

እግዚ(ወልድ) አብ( አብ) ፡ ሔር(መፈስ ቅዱስ) ብርሃን ነው | The Real God is Revealed by Light – For God is Light

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 28, 2017

Amazingly the properties of light can prove beyond all doubt, exactly who the real God is. If God is Light, then both God and Light should have the same identifiable characteristics and amazingly they do!!!!

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL

Happy PENTECOST: Divine Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 31, 2015

 

Its landscapes are biblical and its rituals haven’t changed for centuries.

There are moments when Ethiopia seems to belong to an atlas of the imagination – part legend, part fairy-tale, part Old Testament book, part pulling your leg.

In the northern highlands priests with white robes and shepherds’ crooks appear to have stepped out of a Biblical painting. In the southern river valleys bare-breasted tribeswomen, who scar their torsos for erotic effect and insert plates the size of table mats in their lower lips, seemed to have emerged from a National Geographic magazine circa 1930. Ethiopia.

resembles no other country in Africa”, wrote the great explorer Wilfred Thesiger, “or anywhere else.”

Its isolation is legendary. Not only was Ethiopia never colonised, but it also inflicted the greatest defeat on a European army in the history of the continent – at the Battle of Adwa in 1896. It was only the Italians, of course, but it still counts. Ethiopians were “forgetful of the world”, Edward Gibbon wrote, “by whom they were forgotten”. For long medieval centuries Europeans believed that Ethiopia was home to Prester John, legendary Christian ruler, descendant of one of the three Magi, keeper of the Fountain of Youth, protector of the Holy Grail, and all-round good guy who would one day rescue the Holy Land from the Muslims.

There are always two histories in Ethiopia: the history of historians, sometimes a trifle vague, often tentative; and the history of Ethiopians, a people’s history, confident, detailed, splendid, often fantastical. The two rarely coincide. Historians are still wringing their hands about the mysteries of Aksum in Tigray in the north, with its colossal stelae, its underground tombs, its ruined palaces and its possible connections to the Queen of Sheba. For a thousand years, until about AD 700, it was a dominant power in the region, “the last of the great civilisations of antiquity”, according to Neville Chittick , the archaeologist, “to be revealed to modern knowledge”.

Fortunately, the Ethiopians are on hand to fill in most of the historical blanks. The city was founded, they say, by the great-grandson of Noah. For 400 years it was ruled by a serpent who enjoyed a diet of milk and virgins. Historians may be divided about the Queen of Sheba but Ethiopians know she set off from here to Jerusalem with 797 camels and lot of rather racy lingerie to seduce King Solomon. Historians carelessly lost track of the Ten Commandments not long after Moses came down from Mount Sinai. Ethiopians have the originals under lock and key in a chapel in Aksum, guarded by those mute monks, assigned to kill all intruders.

Ethiopia may not be big on stylish boutiques hotels, littered with objets d’art and architectural magazines, but it is a delightfully old-fashioned place, with ravishing landscapes, sleepy villages and friendly, unhurried people.
