Old traditional festivals tend to disappear or become tourist attractions, losing many of the original features. Meskel celebrations in Ethiopia still maintain most of its original features. Meskel celebrations in Lalibela are one of the most recognized and colorful religious festivals in Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity.

Isten Lelke leszállt… (The Spirit Came Down – Selected Quotes)

Fókuszban az Ige / The Word in Focus

Pentecost-dove1

Életre kelhetnek-e ezek a megszáradt csontok? (Ezékiel 37:3)

Az emberek természetük szerint olyanok, mint ezek a száraz csontok, melyek a völgyben, annak felszínén elterülve fekszenek. Egész szellemi csontvázuk kificamodott; a szellemi élet nedve és veleje kiszáradt belőlük. Az emberi természet nemcsak halott, hanem – mint a régóta a napon szikkadó, kifehéredő csontok – már az isteni élet minden fellelhető nyomát is elveszítette. Akarata és ereje is elhagyta már; a szellemi halál zavartalanul uralkodik. Ám mégis: ezek a száraz csontok életre kelhetnek! Az Ige prédikálásának hatására még a leggonoszabb bűnös is jó útra téríthető; a legmakacsabb akaratú ember is megszelídíthető; a legszentségtelenebb élet is megszentelhető. Amikor a szent „lehelet” rájuk száll a négy égtáj felől; amikor az isteni Lélek leszáll, hogy méltassa és igazolja az Igét – akkor a bűnösök tömegei, mint annak idején, Pünkösd szent napján, lábaikra állnak, „felette igen nagy” seregként, hogy dicsérjék az Urat, az ő Istenüket! —…

Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3: 11

I I would suggest a reading of the entire chapter of Colossians, 3.

It is just amazing, as Paul outlines what we are to put away and what we are to embrace and what holds that embrace together is love.

However, I want to call your attention to the above passage because when it was written, nearly 2000 years it was simply astonishingly revolutionary.

Paul is pointing our to us that when we come to Messiah everything changes. Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, is the great unifier. Before He came the Jews were separated from the Gentiles—everyone who wasn’t Jewish—and were forbidden to even eat with them under the rules and prohibitions set by the Pharisee’s interpretation of the Mosaic law.

Now…
