Where the prophets of the Old Testament of the Holy Bible had many roles they played, and still play today, the focus of this paper will address only four of them. Being a mouthpiece for God and making His holiness known, showing unbreakable faith in Him, being faithful to him, and praying to and praising Him for His judgment and redemption of Israel are four major roles a prophet plays.
Cannabis, more specifically marijuana, is said to enhance, or even induce, spiritually enlightening experiences. Personally, I would have to agree. All my life I have felt like the “lonely stoner” when it comes to attending a church service somewhere. I have run into many over the years who sincerely believe cannabis is a drug, should remain illegal, and that God would not want us to partake of it in any way shape or form.
Just who is Jesus, the one referred to, by some, as, "Christ and savior of the world?" My whole 40 years of life, I have heard different variations of the stories used to describe the man known as Jesus Christ. From being referred to as the Son of God, to an important prophet, to God himself, the references to who Jesus was/is have always grabbed my attention. Upon wanting to build a closer relationship with my heavenly Father, Jehovah (God), I decided to study closer to ensure I better understood Jesus, his life, and his purpose.
I have always considered myself a spiritual person, never religious though. To me, the words religious and religion sound more descriptive of rituals and traditions; which the Holy Bible speaks against. Being a believer in Jehovah as the true God and Jesus as the Son of God and the Messiah, the Holy Bible is the religious book I choose to live my life by. Where the concept of God intrigues me, the story of Jesus (his life, his purpose, his divinity, and his relationship with God) fills me with fascination.
