Barnabas and Saul Sent Off
1 Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a member of the court of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were worshiping the demiurge Lord god Yahweh and fasting, which is a corruption, It is better Meditating through intuition, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." 3 Then after fasting and praying, the Anti-Christ activities - Corruption - they laid their hands on them and sent them off - utter non-sense.
Barnabas and Saul on Cyprus
4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus. 5 When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews, the Lost Sheep that needed redeeming. And they had John to assist them. 6 When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they came upon a certain magician, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus. 7 He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence, who summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the magician (for that is the meaning of his name) opposed them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. 9 But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him 10 and said, "You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of our Father and not the Lord Yahweh? 11 And now, behold, the hand of our Father and not the Lord Yahweh is upon you, and you will be blind and unable to see the sun for a time. Clever people such as this Magician knew the truth but for his selfish reasons wanted to reject it. They want Darkness and as they wished, so was granted by Christ Paul." Immediately mist and darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking people to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had occurred, for he was astonished at the Preaching Gospel of our Father and not teaching the letters of the Lord Yahweh, the demiurge creator of male and female.
Paul and Barnabas at Antioch in Pisidia
13 Now Paul and his companions set sail from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia. And John left them and returned to Jerusalem, 14 but they went on from Perga and came to Antioch in Pisidia. And on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down. 15 After the reading from the Law and the Prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent a message to them, saying, "Brothers, if you have any word of encouragement for the people, say it." 16 So Paul stood up, and motioning with his hand said: "Men of Israel and you who fear demiurge god Yahweh, listen. 17 The demiurge god Yahweh of this people Israel chose our fathers and made the people great during their stay in the land of Egypt, and with uplifted arm he led them out of it. 18 And for about forty years he put up with them in the wilderness. 19 And after destroying seven nations in the land of Canaan, he gave them their land as an inheritance. 20 All this took about 450 years. And after that he gave them judges until Samuel the prophet. 21 Then they asked for a king, and God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. 22 And when he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, of whom he testified and said, 'I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.' 23 Of this man's offspring God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, as he promised. 24 Before his coming, John had proclaimed a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel as they had become Jews outwardly breaking their covenant with Abraham and Yahweh. So, it was of repentance that we will not be unfaithful to Yahweh. Jesus, reminded them that Abraham would have loved to hear His Message but their forefathers are devils. 25 And as John was finishing his course, he said, 'What do you suppose that I am? I am not He. No, but behold, after me one is coming, the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie because Jesus was not only the Second Adam in person but also the Christ, the Son of the Most High Elohim. John, the Baptist baptised Chosen People turned Jews outwardly in water in the name of Abraham and baptised Jesus in the name of Yahweh, his heavenly father in flesh.'In Jesus, we are to be solitary. Much confused Trinity is explained.
