CNNCBSABCNBCFOX didn’t tell you this, but the president of Turkey has declared himself to be God. Turkey will also have a new national anthem praising him as God. Read this whole article:
God sees every message you write on Snapchat, and every message you read and wrongly believe or give credence to.
Just a reminder: “³⁶And I tell you, every idle word which human beings will speak, they will have to give an explanation for it on the day of judgment. ³⁷For out of your words you will be justified, and out of your words you will be condemned.”
In Hebrew, and ancient Greek as well, the words for foot πούς and hand χείρ originally meant the whole limb, not just the foot and hand; that is, πούς could mean the whole leg, and χείρ the whole upper limb, from the finger tips to the shoulder. In Revelation, we can see that the writer uses these words that way, from Revelation 10:1, where he says (ESV), “Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire.”
Certainly, legs are like pillars, and feet are not like pillars. The ESV correctly renders πούς as legs, and not feet. Those translations that render it “feet” are just plain wrong.
Incorrect translations, reading “feet” in Rev. 10:1:
GW (God’s Word)
NABRE (NAB revised)
Correct translations, reading “legs” in Rev. 10:1
GNT (Good News)
CJB (Complete Jewish Bible)
The Messianic Ebible has a footnote indicating that “legs” is in the Syriac.
The Amplified Bible says “feet (legs)”
Incorrect translations, reading “hand” in Rev. 13:16
GNT (Good News)

Correct translations, reading “arm” or “upper limb”in Rev. 13:16:

Did you heard about Mark Burnett’s and Roma Downey’s charity, which helps displaced Christians in Iraq and the middle east? Your fellow Christians are cold and hungry and persecuted. I urge you to donate at least once.
I have edited and uploaded the Nicene Creed. This version is as framed in the year 325, according to the text contained in Socrates’ Ecclesiastical History, and I made footnotes where it is different in the texts from the Acts of the Council of Chalcedon, and St. Athanasius. An expanded version later came out of Constantinople, but this is the original Nicene Creed. The later version also eliminated the Anathema found at the end of the original.
This document of the Nicene Creed is a pdf, and alternates between the Greek text and the English translation.

Here is a Sura in the Qur’an in which Muhammad quotes the Jinn, or evil spirits, demons, fiery spirits. (Qur’an chapter 72)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
072.001 Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur’an). They said, ‘We have really heard a wonderful Recital!
072.002 ‘It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord.
072.003 ‘And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son.
[Note that in verse 1, the Jinn liked the Qur’an. In verse 2, the demons believe in the Qur’an, and they agree with the spirit of the Qur’an that only their Lord should be worshiped. In verse 3, we see that their Lord is not the same God as the God of Christianity, because their God does not have a son. Allah does not have a son, but the God of Christianity does. They are certainly not the same god or the same lord.
072.004 ‘There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah;
072.005 ‘But we do think that no man or spirit should say aught that untrue against Allah.
072.006 ‘True, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons among the Jinns, but they increased them in folly.
072.007 ‘And they (came to) think as ye thought, that Allah would not raise up any one (to Judgment).
072.008 ‘And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires.
072.009 ‘We used, indeed, to sit there in (hidden) stations, to (steal) a hearing; but any who listen now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush.
072.010 ‘And we understand not whether ill is intended to those on earth, or whether their Lord (really) intends to guide them to right conduct.
[The demons are not sure whether the Lord of the earth intends harm on the earth or not.]
072.011 ‘There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths.
072.012 ‘But we think that we can by no means frustrate Allah throughout the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight.
072.013 ‘And as for us, since we have listened to the Guidance, we have accepted it: and any who believes in his Lord has no fear, either of a short (account) or of any injustice.
072.014 ‘Amongst us are some that submit their wills (to Allah), and some that swerve from justice. Now those who submit their wills – they have sought out (the path) of right conduct:
072.015 ‘But those who swerve,- they are (but) fuel for Hell-fire’-
072.016 (And Allah’s Message is): “If they (the Pagans) had (only) remained on the (right) Way, We should certainly have bestowed on them Rain in abundance. …”
[In this, the Qur’an agrees with the Bible, insofar as it states that some of the angel-spirit beings follow God, and some follow Satan.
The point of this post, is to show that the God of Islam, Allah, is not the same God as the God of Christianity; and in fact they are enemies. Allah, the more you read the Qur’an and other Islamic writings, shows himself to be Satan. The god of Jesus Christ and the apostles, that god has a son, named Jesus Christ. Anyone who says God does not have a son, is antichrist, according to the apostle John in 1 John 2:22: “Who is the liar, if not someone denying as follows, “Jesus is not the Anointed One”? This is antichrist, someone denying the Father and the Son.” To deny that God as a son, is to be antichrist.
