Is the Biblical God the Lord of tribes of Israel alone or is He the Lord of the whole universe?
Those sentences which are colored in orange are from Maharishi Dayananda Saraswati book Satyarth Prakash (The Light of Truth) and those which are colored in black are Jerry Thomas’s response.
"And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand." (7:4, 5.)
C. Is the Biblical God the Lord of tribes of Israel alone or is He the Lord of the whole Universe? Had He not been only their Lord He would not have sided with those savages alone. He always helped them only, did not even take the name of any other tribe or nation. Hence He is not God. His sealing men of the tribes of Israel, betrays the finitude of his knowledge and power. Or it (may be) was all John's false conception.________________________________________*It is that the word akaasha has been rendered by the translators of the bible into A'kaa'sha, which is formless substance.
Answer: Maharishi’s selective reading is appalling and unfortunate that one starts doubting the integrity of this person and not just his evident ignorance.
Maharishi quoted Revelation 7:4-5 but did not quote Revelation 7:9 and then asked why God only sided with tribes of Israel. Had he quoted the very next verses, he would have been totally exposed to his blind followers.
Revelation 7: 9-12 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of ALL NATIONS, TRIBES, PEOPLES and TONGUES, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen."
Does one need answer any further to such a blatant biased Maharishi?
