well kudos for you for doing some research! s&f for you!
when i first read the title of your thread,i almost didn't read it for far someone was going to be preaching to me!!!
i agree with a lot of what you speak of,but latin was around before jesus was born,the romans spoke it.
and like all the great beliefs of the greeks (and other peoples) rome stole it for their own!
O.E. Lucifer "Satan," also "morning star," from L. Lucifer "morning star," lit. "light-bringing," from lux (gen. lucis) "light" (see
light (n.)) + ferre "carry" (see infer). Belief that it was the proper name of Satan began with its use in Bible to translate Gk. Phosphoros, which
translates Heb. Helel ben Shahar in Isaiah xiv:12 -- "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!" [KJV] Because of the mention
of a fall from Heaven, the verse was interpreted by Christians as a reference to Satan, even though it is literally a reference to the King of Babylon
(cf. Isaiah xiv:4). Lucifer match "friction match" is from 1831. Adjectival forms include Luciferian, Luciferine, Luciferous. There was a noted
Bishop Lucifer of Cagliari in Sardinia in the 4th century, regarded locally as a saint. luciferous Look up luciferous at Dictionary.com
"light-bringing, emitting light," 1650s, from L. lucifer (see Lucifer) + -ous. Figurative use is earliest (1640s) and more common.
also, i study Gematria
1680s, from Heb. gematriya, from Gk. geometria (see geometry). "[E]xplanation of the sense of a word by substituting for
it another word, so that the numerical value of the letters constituting either word is identical"
i have found it really only works well with hebrew the best,then greek,with a bit of luck in chinese.
everytime i tried it with english, i got little to nowhere!
you have to understand that ancient (dead) languages do not change.(this is why your doctor writes your script in latin,so there will be no
to the hebrews, their ancient language is from god,and it is a sin to change it.
english though,is constantly changing!
'yo bitch' does not mean the same today as it did 200 years ago!
so how can you get any accuracy tring to put numbers to it!???
even the word lucifer has lost all its original meaning,and most people think its the devil!!!
satan isn't even a name! its a title!
proper name of the supreme evil spirit in Christianity, O.E. Satan, from L.L. Satan (in Vulgate, in O.T. only), from Gk. Satanas, from Heb. satan
"adversary, one who plots against another," from satan "to show enmity to, oppose, plot against," from root s-t-n "one who opposes, obstructs, or
acts as an adversary." In Septuagint (Gk.) usually translated as diabolos "slanderer," lit. "one who throws (something) across" the path of
another (see devil), though epiboulos "plotter" is used once. In biblical sources the Hebrew term the satan describes an adversarial role. It
is not the name of a particular character. Although Hebrew storytellers as early as the sixth century B.C.E. occasionally introduced a supernatural
character whom they called the satan, what they meant was any one of the angels sent by God for the specific purpose of blocking or obstructing human
activity. [Elaine Pagels, "The Origin of Satan," 1995]
any way,thought i'd put my 2 cents worth in! hope you like!
again,thanx for the post!
