Tisha B’Av - Out of the Darkness - Holiday The saddest day on the Jewish calendar is the Ninth of Av, “Tisha B’Av.” It is the date when both our Holy Temples were destroyed, and exile, persecution and spiritual blackness began. Tisha B’Av starts at sundown of the eighth of Av and lasts till the following nightfall—click here for exact times for your location. On Tisha B’Av we abstain from: Eating and drinking. Nothing should distract from the mourningDon’t greet a friend with “hi” or “good morning.” Leading up to Tisha B’Av: Eat the final meal shortly before sunset. Tisha B’Av Night: Finish eating by sunset. Day: No tallit or tefillin for the morning prayers. After nightfall, before breaking the fast, we ritually wash our hands. From the ashes of the destroyed Temple will rise an incomparably magnificent edifice. Notes: If the ninth of Av falls on Shabbat, the fast is postponed one day, and begins on Saturday night.
The Original ‘Unknown’ God of China Featured In Mystery concerns the 450-year-old Temple of Heaven complex in Beijing, China. Why did the emperors sacrifice a bull on the great white marble Altar of Heaven at an annual ceremony, the year’s most important and colourful celebration, the so-called ‘Border Sacrifice’? This rite ended in 1911 when the last emperor was deposed. However, the sacrifice did not begin a mere 450 years ago. Who is ShangDi? ‘To Thee, O mysteriously-working Maker, I look up in thought. … With the great ceremonies I reverently honor Thee. Thus we find the emperor worshipping ShangDi. ‘Of old in the beginning, there was the great chaos, without form and dark. For the Christian, the above recitation sounds strangely familiar. ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. ShangDi, the Creator-God of the Chinese, surely appears to be one and the same as the Creator-God of the Hebrews. ‘I know Heaven loves men dearly not without reason. How did ShangDi create all things?

It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”). But what are the real origins of Saint Valentine’s Day? First, let’s examine the etymology of the word holiday. At least three different Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs, are mentioned in the early martyrologies . The Catholic Encyclopedia says, “The popular customs associated with Saint Valentine’s Day undoubtedly had their origin in a conventional belief generally received in England and France during the Middle Ages, that on 14th of February, half way through the second month of the year, the birds began to pair.” In Chaucer’s Parliament of Foules it says, “For this was sent on Saint Valentine’s Day, when every foul cometh there to choose his mate.” All Paganism is Satanism.
YHWH is El Hebraic Roots Teaching Institute > Home The Great Gregorian Calendar Conspiracy One of the most interesting conspiracy theories of all time got started when Heribert Illig noticed a rather odd discrepancy in the explanation of the Gregorian Calendar. The conspiracy theorists were certain that the Roman Catholic church had faked 300 years of history, and this became known as the Phantom Time Hypothesis. On the surface they had some compelling facts on their side. In the 1500′s, the Roman Catholic church noticed that Easter was occurring later and later in the spring over the centuries. The problem as it turned out was the Julian calendar. knowledgedrift.wordpress.com
