How Can God Refresh Himself?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

 

The Bible says in the Book of Exodus, Chatper 31, Verse 17...

It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

The Hebrew word for 'refreshed' here is naphash

Naphash means...

to take breath, refresh oneself

Source: http://www.blueletterbible.org/tmp_dir/words/5/1139488744-6501.html 

 

The word is used in other verses...

Exodus 23:12

Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed (naphash).

2 Samuel 16:14

And the king, and all the people that were with him, came weary, and refreshed (naphash) themselves there.

So its clear that naphash is used to signify panting of breath or refreshing oneself from weariness. How can God get wearied? The translators of the NIV Bible probably got too embarrassed to even mention it


The Quran corrects this gross error of the Bible...

Surah 50:38

We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.   My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
