Krishna

Krishna

Shalom, selamat pagi saudaraku. Hari minggu kemarin saya mengirim sebuah artikel kepada beberapa kenalan melalui email. Lalu malamnya saya menerima sebuah tanggapan yang cukup menarik dari salah satu kenalan bernama Volodymyr. Pada intinya ia menyatakan bahwa kisah tentang Kristus memiliki kemiripan dengan mitos tentang Krishna.(1)(2)
Memang analogi tersebut cukup menarik, namun saya menjawab bahwa ada beberapa perbedaan penting, di antaranya:
a. Ayah dan ibu Krishna tidak diketahui, sementara Yesus memiliki ayah dan ibu yaitu Yusuf dan Maria.
b. Silsilah Krishna tidak diketahui, sementara Yesus adalah keturunan Daud. Lihat silsilah dalam Matius 1.
c. Krishna menolong pandawa dalam perang, sementara Yesus sangat cinta damai.
d. Krishna tidak mati dalam penderitaan, sementara Yesus mati disalibkan untuk menyelamatkan umat manusia dari kematian kekal.
e. Untuk menyimpulkan: Krishna hanyalah mitos, sementara Yesus adalah manusia sejati dengan silsilah dan sejarah yang jelas. Yesus memberikan nyawa-Nya bagi penebusan dosa umat manusia. (3)(4)(5)

Untuk jelasnya, komunikasi email kami bisa diikuti di bawah ini. Kiranya artikel ini menolong kita untuk lebih memahami pribadi Yesus.

Hello, Victor.

You penetrate yourself in so deep details that people who do not aware of these subtle details cannot rather follow each detail but only can feel an integral perception. I think that old Jewish people who wrote their Tora borrowed many religious ideas and concepts from other folks, in particular Slavs who were that time the most developed (because the Vedic culture started from pre-Slavic culture).

Bulgarian historian Svetlozar Popov and Ukrainian historian Yuri Shilov in 2010 published materials in which they compare old stories about Slavic gods Kresnyk, Krusna, then Krishna and Christ with myths about ancient Savior Koleda (Koleda was known since around 5000 years ago). The comparison was conducted for 14 signs. Jesus Christ corresponds to Koleda on 87% (10 signs coincide in activity of Koleda and Christ (5 signs in activity of old Krusna and Krishna and younger Christ). We know also Zarathustra, Mithra, Buddha, Dionis (Greek god) - they are very similar to Christ as well.

1. Svetlozar Popov, "Bulgarian Koleda in Veda of Slovena" (2010), in Bulgarian.
2. Yuri Shilov, "Aratta by Veda of Slovena and signs of the Trypillia culture, and other scientific sources" (2010), in Ukrainian

I read some books on Vedic culture and they also talk about cosmology (e.g. see in my web page http://inerton.wikidot.com/vedic-physics); there is also a very ancient book "Starry Book of Koleda" - but where is the manuscript? Nobody knows; 3-4 years ago at one special presentation here in Kyiv the lecturers told that they have this book. But they do not wish to share its knowledge (and I do not know where they told the truth)...

Summarizing, I can say that for me it is very difficult to follow your text because the details mentioned above are immediately come to my minds and the mind wishes to consider all these views together, not only one road that you investigate.

Friendly yours,
Volodymyr

Dear Volodymyr

Thank you for your comments.

In this paper i discuss a comparison between cosmology models derived from Christology and Trinitarian approaches. Although it is interesting to ask about similar myths in Other ancient religions, i do not discuss comparative religions study.
But let me comment on similarity between Christ and Khrisna. I was attracted on this similarity since 25 years ago, but only now i realized their differences:

a. Krishna's father and mother were not known, while Jesus has Joseph and Maria as his father and mother.

b. Krishna's genealogy is not known, while Jesus was clearly from Davidic genealogy.

c. Krishna help pandawa into war, while Jesus was very peaceful.

d. Krishna did not die in suffering, while Jesus died in the cross to save humanity from eternal death.

e. to summarize: Krishna is a myth, while Jesus Christ is a real human with clear genealogy and history.

So if you want to put your belief to the myths, you can go to other legend stories.

But if you want to meet the real savior who has died to save all humanity including you and me, he is Jesus Christ.

I hope this may help you. May God help you to understand.

10 changes Jesus will bring

By Tim McHyde
my FREE article on the exciting Millennium changes...Big Changes When Jesus Returns - Including Pets Gone Vegetarian Since my last email to you, my world has frankly been turned upside down. Our autistic firstborn Zachary, 23, had to be taken to the ER due to not breathing well after some vomiting and fever. Rather than it being a mere flu, he had pneumonia and sepsis. This has landed him in the ICU where he is on a breathing tube and IV antibiotics. He literally almost died and the doctors are still not happy with his labs a week later (very low thrombocytes). I would appreciate your prayers for him. You can read the details, updates and answers to FAQs on this post for him. Thank you.

In extreme trials like this, I find it essential to deal with all lies and other negative thoughts (fear, worry, guilt, etc.) by rebuking them with positive truth from Scripture and reminding yourself of God's past good to you. As well, I find it comforting to remember that …

Pembangunan Bait Suci ke-3

*Pembangunan Bait Suci ke-3. Antikristus dan Rapture di depan mata kita!*
Salah satu topik yang paling hangat dibicarakan berkaitan dengan Akhir Zaman ialah pembangunan Bait Suci ke-3 di Yerusalem.  Pembangunan Bait Suci ini merupakan salah satu nubuatan yang akan segera digenapi.  Namun, terdapat banyak kendala yang menghambat pembangunannya, sebut saja Lokasi persis bangunan Bait Suci ke-3, apakah tabut perjanjian sudah ditemukan, dan bagaimana perkakas-perkakas Bait itu.  Bagaimana sebenarnya  kisah dan kelanjutannya, berikut adalah penjelasannya.
Pada 7 Juni 1967, selang beberapa hari setelah Israel mengambilalih kekuasaan atas Yerusalem, Moshe Dayan selaku Menteri Pertahanan Israel kala itu datang untuk pertama kalinya berdoa di Tembok Barat dari Bukit Bait Suci, dan ia menyatakan: "Kami telah mengembalikan tempat Maha Kudus kami dan kami tidak akan pernah meninggalkannya kembali". Shlomo Gorn, Rabbi kepala dari tentara Israel kemudian meniup "shofar" sebagai sy…

What God promised to tell me to do as the Elijah for the End of Times.

What God promised to tell me to do as the Elijah for the End of Times.

*And now He fulfill His promise, because this is the end of Times.

Note: Believe it or not, this article was written very carefully under guidance of Holy Spirit, because I do not know the meaning and unprepared to become a prophet of God. But thanks God, He is full of mercy.

Beginning
God call me in Oct. 2009 as His prophet in order to prepare so many people in His body of churches and nations for the End of Times. Before that, God asked me three times: "Do you love Me? Then shepherd My lambs." And I replied, "Yes, God. You know that I love You." At the time, I remembered that classic conversation between Jesus and Peter in John chapter 21. I tried to see how the relation of Jesus's question to Peter and God's question to me, but it is mystery.
Initially, I was so enthusiastic with this unexpected job from God to become His prophet, and at the time, a part of me said that it is a very …
