A (Non-Boring) Twitter History of the Word, Namāz ( نماز#, #नमाज़)

The word “namāz” in #Urdu/#Hindi is used for the five daily prayers that every #Muslim is supposed to offer.

The word for the five daily prayers in #Arabic , however, is salat, صَلاة

1/12
Of Persian import, namāz has a long and extremely complex history, which can be traced back to the pre-Islamic past.

The origin of namāz can be traced back to an ancient proto-Indo-European root, nam (to bow, to bend).

2/12
The verb nam (to bow) and the noun namah-/namas- (prostration, reverence) can be found in both #Sanskrit and Avestan, the Zoroastrian #Scripture .

1/7 A corporation is a money-making machine. Until recently in history, corporations could only make money by manipulating matter (wood, stone, metals, minerals, etc) to extract profits. Now corporations can make money by manipulating human perceptions, feelings, and decisions.
2/7 Testifying to Congress, Frances Haugen, the Facebook whistle blower, charges that Facebook puts "astronomical profits before people... Facebook’s products harm children, stoke division, and weaken our democracy...destabilize democracy.” What!?
3/7 If true, think of how frightening and historically unprecedented this is. If a corporation possesses enough power to “destabilize democracy” for its own financial profits, that corporation possesses power equal to that of sovereign nations.

A thread (Part 1)

The Law of the Lord Is Perfect (Ps. 19:1-5 ESV)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
#storytimethreads
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,

I’ve always been inspired by the way @BethMooreLPM brings God’s Word to life here on Twitter by sharing what she’s been reading, so here goes my first Twitter thread where I will try to explain why I was completely undone by my time in Scripture a few days ago.
I have been reading through the 13 letters of Paul, and since I read them slightly out of order, I ended in Philemon. I’ll admit that I had NO IDEA who Philemon was. This is not a book of the Bible I have spent much time in; however, it is now one of my favorites.
If you are like me and don’t know much about Philemon, here is a quick overview: Philemon (pronounced Fuh-Lee-Muhn) was a slave owner who lived in Colossae and was friends with Paul. One of his slaves, Onesimus, stole from him and ran away, which was punishable by death.

1. Faith is meant for spiritual things.

Faith is misused and abused.

Using faith on earth w/o rigorous testing is damaging that what God gave you to connect you to Him.
2. Think of #Gambling...doesn't the house always win?

What is going through the mind of those who sit at the #SlotMachines?

Whoa!!!!!!! Think of the #Internet.

Shouldn't we #GuardYourHeart?

What of #Hope?

I often think of the #BookOfJob #OldTestament.
3. Are you tossed around by the wind and waves?

Ephesians 4:14
"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming."

Without question, unceasing #prayer is the most difficult thing in the world - especially if we consider our faintheartedness - and how swiftly our attention flees during the saying of one Hail Mary & if we remember the great weariness brought on by prolonged prayer ...
... and how our head hurts praying for a long time & how we cannot do as much as we would like.

In light of these & similar hardships, it is clear that unceasing prayer is akin to death & the most impossible advice that could be given to us.
If we consider, however, that #Scripture addresses those who do all things in Him who comforts them, meaning in #God, then we ought not to say that is is difficult, for the one who offers the advice, #Christ, will provide all the needed strength.

Light in the midst of darkness ..
That's how when we are energized by #God .. in the midst of trouble ..

2 Timothy 1: 1-9 #Bible #Scripture

Job described the human condition with these words: “Man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward” (Job 5:7).. 1/n
This was certainly the situation for Timothy, a young pastor/elder trying to protect the church from persecution and false doctrine. And as a result, he was becoming discouraged and found his passion waning.. #Bible #Scripture
2 Timothy 1:1-9 .. 2/n
Things are no different today, right?Overwhelming troubles can cause us to grow weak and lose our zeal for #God, His Word, and prayer. The solution for us today is the same one Paul gave Timothy all those years ago.. #Bible #Scripture

THREAD: The Chronicler’s Genealogies.

In times of worry and panic, it can be helpful to think about something completely different for a while.

To that end, may I commend to you some thoughts on the genealogies contained in 1 Chronicles 1–9.

#BibleStudy #Chronicles
Biblical genealogies aren’t merely records of history.

They have a purpose, a message, and a theology to convey.

And the genealogies in 1 Chronicles are no exception.
In a future thread, I hope to zoom in on in Benjamin’s genealogy,

which is scattered throughout 1 Chronicles 7–9.

But, here, I’ll share a few thoughts on the big picture of the Chronicler’s genealogies.

“Why do you think we call the last century the great American century? Because AMERICA SAVED THE WORLD -- not once, not twice, but THREE times from the evils of Nazism, communism, and despotism. If you want a little piece of evidence, here’s one fact to show you ...
...how different the American value system is: We’re the only people on the face of the planet, in the history of the entire world, to hold a technological advantage in war AND NOT USE IT FOR CONQUEST, but instead use it to free and liberate people around the world.
In 1945 we had the bomb no one else had.We could have taken that weapon and forced every nation on the planet to submit to us.We could have controlled the entire planet-that’s been the way of the world throughout history! Any time a nation had an advantage in war what do they do?

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-
