Al-ilah not Arab/Islamic but (?) rooted in Aramaic

Reader comment on item: Give Gaza to Egypt
in response to reader comment: Allah is not an Arab name for the God worshipped by Christians and Jews

Submitted by trans-parere (Canada), Feb 5, 2008 at 18:42

AL-ILAH (Aramaic). The title for "God" as used by Aramaic speaking believers at the time of Jesus. One of the most proper titles for God used in the Near East when Aramaic was the lingua franca of the Semitic language family from 1,200 BC to 600 CE. During the most important period in the formation of the New Testament, this expression could be found as seen in Romans 16.26-27, for the original language spoken by Jesus and his disciples was Aramaic. Al-ilah, O blessed and only wise one, may Thy blessings of the cosmos be with us at all times. Praise to Thee for the prophets and Jesus the Messiah.

In all of Thy Holy Names, may the mysteries of your nature and manifestations be revealed to us. Amen. AL-ILAH RAPHA (Aramaic). "God of Healing." Ancient expression for the intervention of the Divine Powers that all humanity requires to live and breathe. Most precious and exalted Lord who Heals, Al-ilah Rapha, examine my body and physical nature with Thy penetrating and healing power. May Thou Heal us from all sicknesses and sufferings and bring a restoration of health in body and spirit to those I pray for at this hour, especially for those in a time of transition. Amen. AL-ILAH SABTAI (Aramaic). "God of Rest." Ancient expression for the Rest or Sabbath, that place of contentment and Peace with God. May Al-ilah Sabtai bring forth the peace to deliver all sentient intelligence in this universe which appears to move towards chaos. Amen.

AL-ILAH SHEMAYA (Aramaic). "God Hears." Ancient expression which acknowledges the Presence of God in our lives. Thou art the true Lord who is always with us, Al-ilah Shemaya. Manifest Thy presence here in the midst of the physical world and the physical reality so that it may be transmuted into the glory of a spiritual planet in the newly arisen universe. Amen. Hebrew-Aramaic according to the study by Dr. J.J. Hurtak, Ph.D.
