God created Fire to reveal His power

The creation of God “fire” is created on Sunday alongside the Heaven and Earth, the Angels, Water and Wind. There are some facts we must analyze about fire for God created it for reason. Prophet Mosses have said that God is consuming Fire stating “For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.” (Deuteronomy 4:24)

The Ark of the Covenant

Every year all in the name of the Orthodox Tewahedo religion celebrates the day of which the Ark of the Covenant came to Ethiopia and the feast of Holy Mother Saint Mary as Zion symbolizes Her on Hidar 21 (November 30). The entire Orthodox Church named in the name of Saint Mary celebrates the feast in the commemoration of The Ark of the Covenant (the Tablet) with respect to our Holy Mother as she is the temple of God and His law transferred in-scripted by His Holy hands on each of the two tablet that prophet Mosses received in the Mount of Sinai.

The Seven Archangels

Dear Children of God! How are you? How is school and your study? Hope you are doing well! Children, always remember to be active and attentive at your school because you need to understand the lesson that your teacher presents in the classroom. You must also have a good behavior, be obedient and respect your teachers as well as your elders.

Dear Children, alongside Holy Mother Saint Mary, the chosen children of God help us repent (cleanse) our sin. That is one of the reason we have prepared a lesson about the Seven Archangels who are Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael, Saint Raguel, Saint Uriel, Saint Phanuel, and Saint Saquel.

The Fast of Prophets

Mankind was bestowed a hope of salvation as the prophet foretold prophecy about the mystery of “Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” to be born from Holy Mother Saint Mary. Conferring the word of God, Christians fast “The Fast of Prophets.” This fast is amongst the seven fast and thus all in the name of Orthodox Tewahedo religion shall fast. This year’s fast begins at November 24, (Hidar 15) 2022 (2015 E.C) and lasts until January 6, (Tahisas 28), 2023 (2015). At January 7 (Tahisas 29), on the celebration of the Birth of Lord Jesus Christ, it is festival.
