We are ‘taught’ with all current images that God is Caucasoid! Uhh! In the early church he was thought te be as the believers.
The oldest known portrait of Jesus, found in Syria and dated to about 235, shows him as a beardless young man of authoritative and dignified bearing. He is depicted dressed in the style of a young philosopher, with close-cropped hair and wearing a tunic and pallium – signs of good breeding in Greco-Roman society. Blond haired, blue eyed? First, Yes! There is a concept of God that I will in no way disprove. No matter what we believe God as… knowing God in Spirit and truth is key.
Many waves beat the waters here! What did The Isrealites, the original family of God – appear like? Yet we are all Created in God’s image! Both Male and Female! Is God definable? In the spiritual we read the term “beauty” used to define angels… God’s first Created entities… Billions of ‘years’ old! Where there is no ‘Time’ they are as God Created them to be, Amen.
Heaven, there is NO change. Very simply; “Heaven is as Heaven does.” For Trillions of google ‘Years’ when The Heavens were established… God Was and Is as God has ALL WAYS been!
I will note that it has been pointed out that beyond here on Earth, there is NO ‘Time’!
We as HuMan have attempted inconcusively to estimate periods in the heavenlies. ‘But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With The LORD a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The LORD is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. God is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.’ 2 Peter 3:8,9
Answer to a frequently asked question: “Where is Heaven?” We can explain this… https://www.gotquestions.org/where-is-Heaven.html
‘Time’ as we KNOW it is an Earthly concept! After ‘Earth’ there is no ‘Time.’
How do we ‘determine’ time? ‘Rising and Setting’ of the Sun! No? In The Heavenlies is there Sun? THE Light of The Universe Exists in The 7th Heaven! In The Essence of The Father of all all in God’s presence is Illuminated by God’s glory. Impossible for “Night” to ever exist in The Presence of The Most High!
God’s Word is The Light! God by The Word stated “let there be light” and it was. An imfinitemallt small glow of The Essence of God. The Sun! To see the Essence in Full frontage is impossible in the huMan form… “But,” God said, “you cannot see My face, for no one may see me and live.” Exodus 33:20
The Sun is a minute reflection of The Essence of The LORD… The sun emits two types of ultraviolet (UV) light, UVB (290-320 nm) and UVA (320-400 nm), that can reach the Earth’s surface. Exposure to UVB and, to a lesser extent, UVA can cause adverse health effects, including increased incidence of skin cancers, cataracts, and immune suppression.
To view The LORD in ALL The glory of The Essence of GLORY is NOT possible at this point.
What does it mean for us as human beings to prostrate before God? Though the term may bring images to our mind of the physical act of prostration, it also symbolizes a great spiritual discourse. God never asks anything of us without reason or meaning. So, what is the deeper spiritual significance behind this act that we must perform in our daily prayers?
“Believers, worship your Lord, bow down and prostrate yourselves before Him and do virtuous deeds so that you will have everlasting happiness.”
The meaning of the verb “to prostrate” is to be stretched out with [one’s] face on the ground in adoration or submission.2 Prostrating is an act of surrender and thus requires a high degree of humility. You would not lower your head unless the one you bow before is greater and more powerful than yourself. It is an acknowledgment of yielding to another.
When the greatness, beauty, and graciousness of God overcomes us, we can naturally fall to our knees in prostration. This could be due to the realization of our insignificance as we submit ourselves to that which we accept as Greater and more Powerful.
“Say, ‘It does not matter whether you believe in it or not, for when it is read to those who had received the knowledge (heavenly Books) that were sent before, they bow down and prostrate themselves before the Lord.’ They say, ’Our Lord is too Glorious to disregard His promise.’ They bow down in prostration and weep and it makes them [humbler] (before the Lord).”
This in its Essence does not matter! Yes, Jesus was in the lineage of king David. We could discuss this for ages! David started as the least ‘son’,son’s, was not sent to war, but sent to tend the sheep – lesson! The lowest becomes the highest in The LORD. Our position is temporal, it has no relation to what we are or have within. Express it quietly to The glory of God and be lifted up, Amen.
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; The LORD will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. James 5:15
By The power in The Essence, God raised The Lord from the dead, and God will raise us also.
1 Corinthians 6:14
Blond haired, blue eyed?
Blond hair is most commonly associated with the peoples of Northern Europe. However, blond hair can also be found in communities in Asia, Africa, and Oceania. … The origin of the gene giving rise to blond hair color has been traced back to the last Ice Age 11,000 years ago.
People with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor, according to new research. A team of scientists has tracked down a genetic mutation that leads to blue eyes. The mutation occurred between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. Before then, there were no blue eyes.
All of a sudden, we are hit with fact… but first let us see the ‘occasion’ of Caucasoid features in Isreal.
Israelis (Hebrew: ישראלים Yiśraʾelim, Arabic: الإسرائيليين al-ʾIsrāʾīliyyin) are the citizens or permanent residents of the State of Israel, a multiethnic state populated by people of different ethnic backgrounds. The largest ethnic groups in Israel are Jews (75%), followed by Arabs (20%) and other minorities (5%). Among the Israeli Jewish population, hundreds of thousands of Jews born in Israel are descended from Ashkenazi Jew, Mizrahi Jews, Sephardi Jews, Ethiopian Jews, and an array of groups from all the Jewish ethnic divisions, though over 50% of Israel’s Jewish population is of at least partial Mizrahi descent.
A stunning array of representations of Jesus characterizes the history of European art from the Middle Ages onward. … His depiction on the cross gave rise to the crucifix (a representation of the figure of Jesus on the cross), which became the pivotal iconographic use of Jesus in the Roman Catholic Church. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.britannica.com/topic/Christology/Jesus-in-the-visual-arts&ved=2ahUKEwiUjoLWqs_mAhVvkeAKHUSjD6EQFjACegQIEBAN&usg=AOvVaw2JS2tGelIQerd0NzPKwHGV
We revisit this again. The oldest known portrait of Jesus, found in Syria and dated to about 235, shows him as a beardless young man of authoritative and dignified bearing. He is depicted dressed in the style of a young philosopher, with close-cropped hair and wearing a tunic and pallium—signs of good breeding in Greco-Roman society. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depiction_of_Jesus%23Before_Constantine&ved=2ahUKEwiUjoLWqs_mAhVvkeAKHUSjD6EQFjAEegQIEBAY&usg=AOvVaw2GVynMu839l86hgFanRd2H
I have read and studied “enduring color”. I vehemently disagree, in my ‘dream,’ I in truth do not recollect any ‘difference’ in appearances, yes there were slight differences in the congregation I was permitted to observe. I have read about the qualities of ‘difference’, we are ALL where we are for a reason. Find it!
