So apparently, it's #WorldLionDay, which provides me with the ideal moment for starting a thread on the so-called Lion of #Judah.
The tribe of Judah is one of the twelve tribes of #Israel, who all descended from the 12 sons of the patriarch Jacob, as was stated in both the Old and the New Testament. Each of these tribes has a specific symbol, as shown below in an Israeli mosaic in a street of #Jerusalem.
It is written in the New #Testament: "And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel." [Revelations 21:12-13]

#BlackHistoryMonth is like a breadcrumb, to follow our #Clues, that as another proverb hashtag called #AmericanDOS is used, leading more #ISRAELITES to #Awake from #Christianity paganism and sorcery. #Religion has never been our friend. #WakeUp 911. #REPENT
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Understanding: #Hosea 4:6. #Christianity never told us the #Messiah whom is called #Jesus is #blackface as in naturally #Dark. Never told us that #Moses is #Dark. #Job, #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB all are #BlackLikeUs.

#Churches teach #paganism and doesn't keep #Sabbath Day holy

#SundayThoughts today’s sermon at #StAndrews #Guluddene - my village church, with 1 service at 10am to 12noon, non-resident pastor (we are working on building a residence in 2019)

#Okuwagala - loosely translated to #Love in English but that is just a small aspect & perspective
#okwagala is seeing the positive and the best in people and circumstances …

The story used is of #Joseph son of #Jacob. His father loved him so much more than his brothers, leading to “natural” ill feelings towards him
Lesson 1: Show love to your children equally and try not to show favoritism

His brothers wanted to kill him, but Reuben (in a moment of love) asked then to just put him in a hole, with plans to taking him back home later but did not follow up so he was sold into slavery

Starting a series of tweets on the Parable of the Two Sons (Luke 15:11-32), part of a climactic structure with the lost sheep + lost coin. We begin with an outcast audience in 15:1 'drawing near' as the older son 'drew near' in 15:26. Contrast 'far' in 15:13, 20. #Parableof2Sons
Language of proximity + distance in #Parableof2Sons parallels + contrasts deeper realities. Sinners are close to Jesus physically + spiritually. The older son is physically close to dad, but emotionally in a far land. The younger son is far physically, but close to dad's heart.
Two contrasting groups hear #Parableof2Sons (Luke 15:1-2). Like a #pixar kids' film with lines only the adults get, some parts of the story are only for real Bible geeks like the scribes. Jesus challenges them to spot how almost every part of his story comes from the OT.
