There is no word equivalent meaning for Devil, Demon, and hell in Torah. Even with Latin you are getting these words as is in Torah. Even Hasatan in Torah means adversary doing gods will! No mention of Satan.
You are twisting the Torah and Bible together to justify your belief.
Why are you lusting after Abrahams dead wife Sarah.
Aten has always been equality, happiness, protection, and love. Aten transcends into the Hebrew Scriptures as the lost name of G-D.
rabbee: well you just proved, you don't know latin, eevreet or english at all. and that you know even less, about transliterations and translations. more or less the latin word, that means, domesticated as beasts. in your feeble inept attempt to, tell me there are no subtle beasts of the fields here actually in TheTorah. and your insane attempts to tell me, you are not following mr lizard lips instuctions, as one of many domesticated as beasts of the fields.

i do not use, any buybull. since i strictly am, going by what G-D has actually came and said to me. and i guarentee that TheG-D WHO actually came to speak to me. never used names like at-n, all-h, jeh-vah, to call HIMSELF as. the day HE came to tell my, all of you in this world, pretending to not be here in TheTorah are all full of crap from the subtle beasts of the fields and their leader. and that everything that predicted to happen to me. is precisely defined in The Written Torah. do not try to give your illusion for me, that i am using any kind of buybull to twist anything. i am merely stathing the facts of G-D actually given to me. even if there may be some or all, concurence in confluence with other existing scriptures.

and also what is written, in TheTorah Scroll, is an exact match of what is actually in the already really been actually happening. including all you, nobodies here in TheTorah Happening today. as all of you critters want to keep reminding me, that your not really all here in TheActual Torah Happening today. i don't! need you all, to keep reminding me of what i already know, is true from HaShem G-D. that none of you critters, following the critter say you not here in TheTorah, by the command of the leader of all the daemon critters. aka: d-evil ones, never here in TheTorah. just like the last two time, with all of you and your grandmother of all were all also decieved then and is no different so far this time here in TheTorah.

and you are wrong about hasatan, whos instructions is to not do G-D'S will on your behalf. since his job is to try and decieve you. and that is not, G-D'S True Will for any of you. and can actually cause mental insanity, and physical harm to you, your family, your neighbors, friends and the whole world. hasatan is G-D'S appointed adversary, and so there for should by your adversary also. just like baal hamolech, and halooseefer, should also be your adversaries. and should not be in agreement, with any of these three adversary angels or anyone who is in agreement with them.

and who says, i am lusting after anyone. let alone any one of the millions of women, who could have the name sarah. how would you know, if any of them are actually Avraham's wife Sarah resurrected from the has been dead? or that adam might not, also be Avraham resurrected? and that Benee Adam, was both Avraham and Sarah, in one body that you all had put to death with all your lies, even unto this very hour of this very day here in TheTorah? and if anyone is doing any twisting, is is you trying to wiggle your way out of being actually here in TheTorah.

The difference between faith and insanity is that that faith is the ability to hold firmly to a conclusion that is incompatible with the evidence, whereas insanity is the ability to hold firmly to a conclusion that is incompatible with the evidence.

rabbee: you have only, described idolitry involing idolitors. my belief in G-D, is not based in faith alone. but by observable facts, taking place here in TheTorah. in the nearly 70 years i have been physically here, i have had three visits from TheG-D of TheTorah actually here in TheTorah. so i do not need faith, to know of the existance of G-D.

and my life is happening, exactly as described for someone predicted in scripture. and it is G-D, WHO in the first visit with i as a small male child. told me exactly how my life, is to be lived before i lived it. so i do not need faith, in this still observable reguard either. but i do have faith, that i have not seen the last of these encounters with G-D. and i do now have faith that my life story, here in this second coming shall continue to happen as pre-deemed by G-D. and i do have faith, that G-D is going to appoint me to be incharge of this whole world as HE already specified. and as is indicated, in scripture as verifiable yet to become a true fact. so it took more than pure faith, for G-D to convince me here in TheStory HE tells to happen.

Jeunesse is a company that distributes a few different beauty products all designed to improve the look of aging skin. One of their products is a called instantly ageless or as it is nicknamed Botox in a Bottle, and as the name suggests, the effects are said to mimic those of having cosmetic surgery.
As outlined on the product website www.my-body-matters.com , the user should experience an improvement in the dark, puffy circles under the eyes. Also, fine lines around the lips, smaller pore size, crow’s feet around the eyes and a general reduction of sagging.
The Instantly Ageless website is well-designed, and it does offer the consumer a reasonable amount of information about the products.
Instantly Ageless is available directly from the website in sachets or vials
