Know thy enemy!

Know they enemy - if you want to succeed

We need to know our enemy if we want to succeed in battle. As we know, our battle is not against flesh and blood. We need to know who these powers of darkness are that we need to struggle with. What does the Scriptures teach us about the adversary? Do we think about the adversary only with our Western mindset or do we really acknowledge what the Scriptures teach us? He is real and we need to know how he operates if we want to overcome his system.

The heresy of the Enoch Calendar

Enoch calendar based on a solar cycle

We have already discussed the lunar calendar and it’s origin in a number of articles. However, we have not yet addressed the topic of the solar calendar – also known as the Enoch calendar. Some groups are promoting the Enoch calendar as the “original” calendar of YHVH. This teaching has a lot of impact on our beliefs. We need to investigate this teaching to understand all the ripple effects that it causes. Let us do a detailed study of the Enoch calendar and the calendar of the Essenes. The more we know about this calendar the better we can decide how Scriptural this really is.

Who were the Essenes?

Dead Sea Scroll from the Essene community at Qumran

We have recently had a lot of exposure to a group of people called the Essenes. The majority view at the moment states that they were the people who lived at Wadi Qumran. They are believed to be the owners of the scrolls that were found in the Judean desert. They are also known for the fact that they did not use the lunar calendar but rather a solar calendar. This makes it clear that they did not follow the norm of the Pharisees and Sadducees of their time. Except for these two facts, what else do we know about this group? Did they have truth that we should be aware of? We will also investigate the potential links between Y´Shua and John the Baptist to the Essenes.

Why care about the Dead Sea Scrolls?

Dead Sea Scroll

Why should we care about a bunch of fragments that were discovered at Qumran? In this study we will investigate what was found in the caves in the Judean dessert and how the analysis of these documents impact our lives today. These documents teach us a lot about the history of our faith.
