Here are three Scriptures that might give you an idea.
Matthew 11: 7. And as they left, Eashoa began telling the crowds about John, “What did you go out to see in the wilderness? A reed moved by the spirit? 8. “And if not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine garments? Behold, those who wear fine clothes, live in royal palaces. 9. “And if not, what did you go out to see? A prophet? Indeed! I am telling you, and more than a prophet! 10. “For this is the one of whom is written, that 'Behold, I am sending my angel before your face, to lay out the path before you.' 11. “Amen, I am telling you, there never was born of women one who stood taller than John the Baptist. However, the smallest one in Heaven, is greater than him. 12. “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven will be gained by austerity, and the disciplined shall win it. 13. “For all the prophets and Scriptures prophesied until John. 14. “And if it pleases you to accept it, he was the Elijah who was destined to come. 15. “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.
Prayers of the Saints are Incense
Revelation 8:1. And as he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2. And I saw the seven angels who stood before Allaha, and they were given seven trumpets. 3. And another angel came and stood over the altar, and he had a golden vessel and he was given a great deal of incense, so that he may offer it in the prayers of all the saints over the golden altar before the throne. 4. There rose the perfume of incense of the saints' prayers from the hand of the angel before Allaha.
Revelation 14:1. And I saw and, behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him one hundred, forty-four thousand in number, who have his name and the name of his Father that is written between their eyes. 2. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of great waters, and like the sound of great thunder, and the sound of harp players playing on their harps; 3. And glorifying the glory of the New Testament before the throne, and before the four living forms and those priests. And no one was able to learn the hymn, except for those one hundred and forty-four thousand, those redeemed from the earth.
This is the hymn of the New Testament Scriptures originated in the Ancient Aramaic language. All the hymns of the New Testament were originated in the Ancient Aramaic language.
Eashoa finally says in Matthew 11:16. “What does this generation resemble? It resembles the boys that sit in the marketplace, crying out to their friends, 17. “Saying, 'We sang for you and you did not dance, and we lamented for you and you did not mourn.'"

The Ancient Aramaic Church AAC crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com exposed one of the major obstacles in the reconciliation of West and East Christian faiths. I did not understand the rift between the American churches and the Eastern Churches I visited over the last fifty years. There was always a strange feeling of disconnect between me and the churches I visited, as if they were asking me, "Where do you belong?" I just did not see it. I thought this was normal behavior, a kind of conservatism; but it wasn't. Now it has become, "On which side are you?"
I refuse to give up, even though it almost does not matter for me anymore. However, it matters how things are going to sort themselves out for the Christian Faith. My work is essentially cut out for me. I must translate the Scriptures and post them in the terminology of both East and West; i.e., the Ancient Aramaic and the Traditional English.

It bothers me that my translation project is not accorded proper respect by the American churches. I would like to make my translation available to more people. It is not enough just to wait for people to discover my translation of the Scriptures on the Internet. I wanted to be able to publish it professionally and disseminate it to a large audience in America. The cost of publishing it and marketing it are beyond my means. I have been praying about it for the last ten years. I do not understand why my prayers are not being answered.
My translations of the Scriptures are not just another version of the Bible; my translations are the only authentic translations of the original Scriptures. Throughout my translation project, I have noticed that every verse of the Western Bibles contains at least one word that has been mistranslated. I am surprised that when people read my translations they do not notice that their Bibles contain errors in every verse. Even more surprising is that the pastors who preach sermons based on the Greek, Latin and English language translations of the words of Eashoa Msheekha and all the prophets before Him, that they do not notice they are preaching misleading ideas, ideas that were not intended by Eashoa Msheekha or the prophets. But in the minds of the American pastors the sermons that they preach seem to be brilliant, inspiring and true to the Scriptures.
This too bothers me, when I reflect on my failure to publish my translations of the Ancient Aramaic Scriptures, and my inability to reach millions of people who are misled every Sunday by their pastors. Why does it have to be like this? Perhaps I need to do some readings of one of the Gospels and compare my translation with the major translations of the mainline churches, and in this way people can see the difference.
I have been told this type of comparative study might help. A few people have asked me to do this. It is a lot of work, but it looks like I might have to do it sooner or later.

This is going to be the last blog entry for 2014
I must put behind me all frustration regarding my efforts to reach out to more English speaking people. I thought the AAC was going to be a strong vehicle to carry the Apostolic Faith into the future, but now I don't know. Maryah Allaha might still bring back the stray sheep of American Christianity. The true faith in Maran Eashoa Msheekha is a special gift that only Maryah knows how to proffer. I'm praying and making plans for 2015. Have a blessed Eida Soora (Small Feast), the name of Christmas in the language that Maryah spoke.
