Give Him a Stone!Written by Rev.A.R.Smith

Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? I found out, in my disappointment that asking for, bread, fish or even an egg, was harder than I realized. I found many a church more interested in building on instead of building up. I found that there was a mighty famine in that land, that many of Family of God had wasted their substance with riotous living. Waisted part of their inhearentance with buildings and sidewalks and fountains that served no one, that feed no one, that supplied no one, in Family of God. I found out that there were those that took advantage of giving of some churches, I found out that this world had gotten a foot hold into many peoples lives. I found out that there were too many giving out serpents, scorpions and stones. I looked and found a mighty famine in land for Bibles, thats correct, I said Bibles. When many were building on, many were suffering for word of God. They were having a hard time in just obtaining a Bible, a preacher, a teacher, an evangelist, and all of this I found out was Bible Prophecy, coming to life in vivid full color. Amos, 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from north even to east, they shall run to and fro to seek word of LORD, and shall not find it. Why I asked myself, why are these brothers in family so destitute for basics of Christianity? And then one scripture came to mind from Lord, Pro 21:6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. What did this mean, what was I to say? As I watched news and read articles, I noticed that this man was saying, Donate $1,000,000 to me for if you don’t, God said that He will take my Life. Donate to me, for we need a sidewalk to a fountain, well even put your name in wood, donate to me and I will build you a stone monument with your name on it, that will last forever. Donate to me and I will use money to send ministers that are in trouble with law to other countries to preach.” Donate,Donate,Donate. But not one was saying, ”Donate to me, so I can buy a bible for some brother without one, Donate to me so I can send out fliers and Bible tracts to those who don’t know Jesus, donate to me so I can send out evangelist to preach word of God.” “Give Him a Stone, we need to build on, give him a serpent we need to spread out, give him a scorpion ,no one will know difference.” Many were and still are preaching, Matthew 25:13, Watch therefore, for ye know neither day nor hour wherein Son of man cometh. But then they fool people into donating for, sidewalks, fountains, buildings, libraries and monuments, just to have their name carved into history. These are blind leading blind, and there is coming a time that they both will fall into ditch. These were just a few thoughts I wanted to share with you. Luke 15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. Can we all just stop and remember what Jesus had to say? For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Can we just stop and quit building on and start building up. Don’t be one of those who say “Give Him A Stone!”
Abaris (Rabbi) the DruidWritten by Robert Bruce Baird

He almost certainly helped arrange for Pythagoras to take his studies or visit Zoroaster, and spend much time learning few secrets he unlocked at Great Pyramid. Those secrets include healing attributed to Therapeutae that modern Dead Sea Scrolls and other research indicates was taught at Qumran. I believe Commarius tutor of Cleopatra may also have taught Jesus some of this art along with Simon Magus and other Gaedhils who had a long tradition of studies since time of Isis in Egypt. Abaris is translated as ‘Rabbi’ amongst people who developed sacerdotal code called Hebrew.
I have dealt with these healing and other arts in other volumes, but I would also suggest it is possible Abaris was in charge of whole Keltoi education system. I suggest this because he arrived to meet Pythagoras on recorded instance, when Pythagoras had already done much of his work. That would make Abaris a truly amazing character because Keltoi were still a major influence in whole world and had what we might call universities or Ashrams throughout it. Hecateus was born in a position to take a prominent priesthood of Basilidae. He turned honor over to someone who needed it but his knowledge seems very Druidic as well. I continue to research Basilian Father’s origins and suspect they (like Nestorians) are part of Judaeo/ Christian/Islamic elite working together to keep majority in a state they are able to use to their own benefit. Who needs states or nations when you have corporate entities that work behind scenes as well as religions?
