* The Jewish, or Hebrew word for cannabis is 'kaneh bosm' as it was originally written in the Torah, the first five books of the Bible.
Kaneh bosm = cannabis. It has been MIS-translated for 2,000 years as 'sweet cane' or 'calamus'. Now we know the truth and 'the truth will set us free'. See the recipe in Exodus 30:23 for the holy anointing oil. It contains cannabis as THE active ingredient. I have made it, and it really works as a topical oil applied through the skin. The very word, CHRIST, literally means 'anointed' with cannabis holy oil. Hallelujah! *

Aloha. It's great to see this site grow with new ideas and new friends who share our special interest in common. Just imagine the blessings and the good that we can do together to free ourselves and the rest of the world that is still held in physical, mental and spiritual bondage. How good can this get? Better than ever!

Many cultures and religions on this beautiful planet have used and enjoyed cannabis and hemp in their history. As proof, there is an ancient word for cannabis or hemp in almost every language on Earth, except Hawaiian and Eskimo. (I believe Russian sailors brought hemp to Hawai'i in the late 1700's. It's been commonly known here as 'pakalolo'. And cannabis, or almost any plant, won't grow near the North Pole.)

We will start a forum soon for all those different histories so that we can better understand our own, but for now let's develope the evidence of cannabis and hemp use in the Holy Bible. Imagine all the references to cannabis written in - green letters - so that they stand out for all to see the 'code' that has been hidden for 2,000 years, the secret 'cannabis code'.

With the latest addition of many, if not all, of the references to the holy anointing oil in the Bible, I think it's time to announce The Green Letter Bible Project.

Some of you know about the 'Red Letter Bible'. It's where all of Jesus' words are printed in red within an otherwise regular Bible It was started by Thomas Jefferson. He thought that Jesus is the most wonderful philosopher and minister who ever lived, and that his exact words needed to be highlighted within the Bible for easy reference and full respect, in red.
I saw just yesterday that every new Senator and Congressman elected to serve in the United States gets a Red Letter Bible when they are sworn-in to office. It's a tradition passed down since the beginning of the nation.

The idea of a 'green letter Bible' has been around for a while in my mind and I think our website is the perfect place to actually build it. As far as I know, there is no such thing - yet - in the world. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

Depending on how long it takes, and how much help we have do to it, we can some day actually print the first copy of The Green Letter Bible and then sell them as a fund raiser for our ministry. We get to make a fine part of world history ourselves, right here on this website forum.

Here's how it will work. The first entry in green will be...

Genesis 1:11, God said, "Let the earth produce all the herbs bearing seed."

Cannabis is an herb bearing seed so it certainly qualifies here. The next will be...

Genesis 1:29, God said, "Behold, I have given you every seed bearing plant on earth, and every fruit tree with seed. It will be for your food."

It goes on like this throughout the entire work until the very last page of Revelations. Some of the references will be obvious, some will be our interpretation of what is likely to be cannabis, or hemp.

Some 'incense' = cannabis
The 'cloud' of the Lord = cannabis
The 'plant of renown' in Ezekiel = cannabis
The 'dream tree' of Daniel = cannabis
'Sack cloth' = hemp
The 'stone' the builders rejected = cannabis

All these and many more will soon be written in green letters.

As we see through the code, the Bible opens even more and reveals itself to us (who already enjoy the holy herb) as a book devoted to the burning (and vaporizing) and many uses of cannabis for the blessings of the Lord and the awakening of humanity. Food, clothing, shelter, fuel, medicine, sacrament and much more. What a gift! We get to 'see' the Bible with new eyes, and as we print it in green letters, we get to reveal it to all those with the eyes to see it.

I am a relative newcomer to the word and the history and the love expressed within the Bible. I trust that we will share insights and revelations for many wonderful years to come. Thank you to the One Love within each of us.

Let the project and the adventure begin!

Love, Roger

The green letter Bible should be printed on hemp paper, again.

It is interesting to note: Ex. 30:31, says: “And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This
shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.”

The key here is “…throughout your generations.” We see here that it is not Biblically good to exterminate cannabis / kaneh bosm, since it is expected and called for in a special recipe. For any evil entity to exterminate cannabis / kaneh bosm, one of the ingredients of this recipe, off earth, would be unfavorable to Christ God Our Father.

"not Biblically good to exterminate cannabis"!! Yes, you can say that again! It's "not Ethically good to exterminate cannabis" also, as it is "not Morally good to exterminate cannabis" and "not Natural to exterminate cannabis" as well.

Hello GCW, Ferre and crew...

Aloha. Yes, a brilliant interpretation from GCW that maintains the cultivation of cannabis throughout all the ages for religious use. I love it! Well done. A significant piece of the puzzle for us to know.

Attorney General John Ashcroft (and many other so-called Christians) can certainly be accused of participating in the extermination of cannabis and hemp, thus denying the very ingredient they need to open their minds and hearts to be truly 'Christened'. To actually become peacemakers and to help heal all the nations, the 'tree of life' must return to the center of the Garden of Eden.

Another great reference for our THC Ministry Green Letter Bible is from Psalm 104:14 where 'the stone the builders rejected has become the corner of our temple'.

The teamwork expressd on this site is terrific. Thank you one and all.

Love and respect, Roger

http://www.blueletterbible.org/index.html

I found the neatest online bible. When you type in a scripture your looking for you go to a page with it then get the option of looking at it an choosing from about 13 differant bible versions and translations. I myself
like the darby version. Heres the darby version of the holy annoited oil verses
Quote:
Exd 30:23 And thou, take best spices -- of liquid myrrh five hundred [shekels], and of sweet cinnamon the half -- two hundred and fifty, and of sweet myrtle two hundred and fifty,
Exd 30:24 and of cassia five hundred, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin;
Exd 30:25 and make of it an oil of holy ointment, a perfume of perfumery after the work of the perfumer: it shall be the holy anointing oil.
Exd 30:26 And thou shalt anoint the tent of meeting with it, and the ark of the testimony,
Exd 30:27 and the table and all its utensils, and the lamp-stand and its utensils, and the altar of incense,
Exd 30:28 and the altar of burnt-offering and all its utensils, and the laver and its stand.
Exd 30:29 And thou shalt hallow them, that they may be most holy: whatever toucheth them shall be holy.
Exd 30:30 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt anoint, and shalt hallow them, that they may serve me as priests.
Exd 30:31 And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel, saying, A holy anointing oil shall this be unto me throughout your generations.
Exd 30:32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make [any] like it, after the preparation of it: it is holy -- holy shall it be unto you.
Exd 30:33 Whoever compoundeth [any] like it, or whoever putteth [any] of it upon any strange thing, shall be cut off from his peoples.
Exd 30:34 And Jehovah said to Moses, Take fragrant drugs -- stacte, and onycha, and galbanum -- fragrant drugs and pure frankincense; in like proportions shall it be.
Exd 30:35 And thou shalt make it into incense, a perfume, after the work of the perfumer, salted, pure, holy.
Exd 30:36 And thou shalt beat [some] of it to powder, and put [some] of it before the testimony in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

Take notice of Exd 30:34 And Jehovah said to Moses, Take fragrant drugs -- stacte, and onycha, and galbanum -- fragrant drugs and pure frankincense; in like proportions shall it be.

J. N. Darby translated the bible in 1890. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.

The Webster version says
Quote:
Exd 30:23 Take thou also to thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred [shekels], and of sweet cinnamon half as much, [even] two hundred and fifty [shekels], and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty [shekels],
Exd 30:24 And of cassia five hundred [shekels], after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive-oil a hin:
Exd 30:25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be a holy anointing oil.
Exd 30:26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation with it, and the ark of the testimony,
Exd 30:27 And the table and all its vessels, and the candlestick and its vessels, and the altar of incense,
Exd 30:28 And the altar of burnt-offering with all its vessels, and the laver and its foot.
Exd 30:29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatever toucheth them shall be holy.
Exd 30:30 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that [they] may minister to me in the priest's office.
Exd 30:31 And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel, saying, This shall be a holy anointing oil to me, throughout your generations.
Exd 30:32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make [any other] like it, after the composition of it: it [is] holy, [and] it shall be holy to you.

Here is the national american versionExd 30:23
Quote:
"Take also for yourself the finest of spices: of flowing myrrh five hundred {shekels,} and of fragrant cinnamon half as much, two hundred and fifty, and of fragrant cane two hundred and fifty,
Exd 30:24 and of cassia five hundred, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin.
Exd 30:25 "You shall make of these a holy anointing oil, a perfume mixture, the work of a perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil.
Exd 30:26 "With it you shall anoint the tent of meeting and the ark of the testimony,
Exd 30:27 and the table and all its utensils, and the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense,
Exd 30:28 and the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the laver and its stand.
Exd 30:29 "You shall also consecrate them, that they may be most holy; whatever touches them shall be holy.
Exd 30:30 "You shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister as priests to Me.
Exd 30:31 "You shall speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'This shall be a holy anointing oil to Me throughout your generations.
Exd 30:32 'It shall not be poured on anyone's body, nor shall you make {any} like it in the same proportions; it is holy, {and} it shall be holy to you.

Here in Isaiah its refered to as the oil of joy." 61:3 to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, that beauty should be given unto them
instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment of praise
instead of the spirit of heaviness: that they might be called terebinths of
righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that he may be glorified."


What thats telling is us is it is so Holy and not to be used in excess or on trivial things nor as perfume. The referances Ferre posted above would be a good guide to as to how to use it. A dab on the forhead will do. For when were in prayer or meditation Or before we go into a bad situation.. Or to annoit our homes ect Not to put it on the underserving. I know I cant wait for my sanctuary kit and annoint myself and go into prayer. I think we should annoit our families and our 12 disciples that God sends us. In the non denominational churches I have been too they bless a bottle of olive oil and annoit people. They are anti cannabis an have no idea what the original oil had in it. I am so amazed at how anti cannabis all churches are. My husband wasnt a smoker when we first married (he is now) and once confided in a x gangster turned minister that I used cannabis regulary and the minister said "Leave her Ill even put you up in a house. How christian is that? Needless to say we never went back.

Hello out there,

Aloha. This is a copy of my email to the number 1 listing on yahoo.com as I searched for 'holy anointing oil', and his return to me. :-{

All the very best to you,

Roger

Hello there,


Shaloha. A moment of your precious time, please. Mahalo.

I am very interested in the holy anointing oil. A search on yahoo.com
tonight led me to your site. Hello.

My name is Roger Christie and I'm the founder of the The Hawai'i Cannabis
(THC) Ministry. My pro-cannabis advocacy has led me to the teachings of the
Bible and to holy oil. From what I can tell now, the holy anointing oil of
Moses and the Christening oil of Jesus contains kaneh bos, or cannabis. We
think that it has been mistranslated, and mistakenly made for hundreds of
years. Do you know any of this? Have you ever heard of this information?
It has now become quite convincing to me.

I make holy anointing oil with kaneh bos (see Exodus 30:23) and it is
miraculous! The personal testimonials I am receiving about it now are
beyond all expectations.

Some of the sources of 'kaneh bos = cannabis' are:

Eliezer Ben-Yehuda's Pocket Dictionary
Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, The Living Torah and
Hayim Baltsan, Webster's New World Hebrew Dictionary (1992).

Do you make holy anointing oil? With what ingredients, may I ask?
Do you know about kaneh bos = cannabis?
Is this topic open for discussion between us?

You likely understand the gravity of this discovery. It would be my
pleasure to communicate with you about this. Mahalo and aloha.


All the very best to you,


Roger Christie

Shalom.
I stumbled upon your information while researching the ingredients for the
Holy anointing oil made according to the recipe in Exodus. No, I am not
using cannabis and I am not interested in your off the wall ideas.
