|TOPIC: Kaneh bosm & Cannabis in scripture [Add your Comment]
||CANNABIS HEMP IN HISTORY
(mj: from YHWH to Moses to Jesus, Thomas Jefferson, & You):
Early Sumeria: "K(a)N(a)B(a)", the early Sumerian/Babylonian word for Cannabis hemp, entered the Indo-Semitic-European language family base, making it one of humankind's longest surviving root words. The ancient Israelites (Moses and his entourage) used, "sweet calamus", as part of the, "holy anointing oil", and for, "sweet incense", "after the art of the apothecary", or drugist, as per Exodus 25:6, 30:22-25, 35:8 & 28. Sweet calamus and, "sweet cane", are the same thing. They are both in the ancient Hebrew/Chaldee rendered as, "qaneh bosem, kaneh bosm (the "m" designating the plural, thus the singular, "kaneh-bos"), kannabos, & kannabus". Kaneh-bos was, according to some language experts, assimilated into the Scythian lexicon as, "cannabis", not unlike the Americanization of the French, "Beaux Arts", to, "Bozart", or the regional mispronounciation of the English, "creek", as, "crick", and, "Bar Harbor", as "Bahabah", Maine, or, "Wuss-tah, Mass", & etc. Breathing the smoke of the sweet incense was required for the ancient Jewish formal worship of "Y(a)H(a)W(e)H", or "Y(a)H(o)W(a)H". Genesis 1:11,12 &29 say that the "herb yielding seed" is GOOD, and is for our CONSUMPTION. 1Kings 3:3
is an account of Solomon burning incense in, "high places". The most commonly used ancient Hebrew/Chaldee word for, "place", is, "m(e)qomah", and means not only a place, spot or standing, but also a, "CONDITION OF THE MIND", not unlike the classical Greek, "topos", place, spot, where, POSITION & CONDITION, as per Dr. James Strong, compiler of the most widely used exhaustive concordance of the Bible. The word "smoke" appears more than 50 times in the Bible, and the word "incense" more than 100 times. Why is it that, "the Spirit of the Lord" & "the glory of the Lord", were so often associated with the smoke of sweet incense, and the breathing of said smoke?! What is being "filled with the Spirit" really?!
"There went up A SMOKE out of his nostrils...All the while my BREATH is in me, and the SPIRIT of God is in my nostrils."--2 Samuel 22:9 & Job 27:3

||Thank you brother for further educating us about the Biblical history of cannabis. I'm going to read those scriptures tonight and let God "talk" to me about cannabis smoke.
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Today a member of the c4c discussion group asked this question - "Anyway, I have a question, probably been asked before, but her goes -
Besides Genesis 1:11 & 30-31, does anyone know any other possible references to cannabis in the bible?"
Below is my response.
Coming from an almost ultra conservative background, and not having yet done the research, I am unaware of any other instances besides the Creation verses that you stated below. There are other places where the gift of the plants is again mentioned, such as when the flood receded, God reaffirmed the giving of this gift to mankind to Noah.
I realize that a lot of the religious folks in our subculture identify cannabis in a number of verses, but as I said, I have not done the research myself. I can say that approaching Christians from this angle, usually hurts our position. Many times when an activist tries to convince Christians of things like Moses not in seeing a burning bush, but smoking a j instead, they automatically reject the notion and the activist ends up losing considerable credibility on the issue with the Christian that they are talking too.
Fortunately though, we don't need to prove that cannabis is mentioned in the Bible or even used by anyone in the Bible. To borrow a phrase from our Unique Positioning Statement that I am working on for the site,
"ChristiansForCannabis believes that the laws that prohibit marijuana/cannabis are immoral and unjust and the Christian support of these laws
to be in violation of God's word. We base our position on: the inerrancy of the Bible, God's creatorship of the earth and all that is in it,
including the seed bearing plant we call cannabis or marijuana; Jesus's command to not judge anything before the appointed time and to love as he loved; and how love does no harm to its neighbor. Thus ChristiansForCannabis is dedicated to serving in whatever capacity God
chooses, to end the prohibition of cannabis and the war on drugs as a whole."
(how does that sound btw?)
We serve a wonderful and just God. He loved us enough to sacrfice his son for us...why is it so hard to believe that he wants to reject no one?
Freed maybe you can recommend some resources for those interested so they can do some research on the subject...:*)
love and peace,

||MIND RENEWAL in the New Testament based on Isaiah 61:1-3 as spoken by Jesus in Luke 4:18-19, and St. Paul in Romans 12:2 & Ephesians 4:23:
St. Paul said, �Be not conformed to this world: but [rather] be ye TRANS-FORMED (to go beyond form) by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND...& BE RENEWED in the SPIRIT of your MIND (the �pneuma� of your mind).�--Romans 12:2 & Ephesians 4:23
TRANSFORMED:�metamorphoo�, (lit. or fig. �metamorphose�):-CHANGE, TRANSFIGURE.
RENEWING: �anakalupto�, same as, �ana�, REVERSAL, RE-NOVATE, FRESHNESS.
MIND: �nous�, intellect, thought, FEELING, understanding, KNOWING, AWARENESS.
RENEWED: �ananeoo�, from, �ana�, RE-NOVATE, REVERSAL (sorrow to joy).
SPIRIT: �pneuma�, from, �pneo�, a primary word; TO BREATHE HARD, TO BLOW, BLAST, breath, MENTAL DISPOSITION, MIND.
So, in light of the definitives behind the Greek, what is St. Paul actually saying? Rather than conforming to this world, he recommends being transformed, going beyond our forms by a reversal of mental disposition. This is right in line with the Messianic prophecy of Isaiah 61:1-3, the �testimony of Jesus� (Revelation 19:10) as recorded in Luke 4:18-19, which is �the spirit of prophecy�, or, �pneuma�, to blow something that will reverse mental disposition, open the senses, cause a sense of copiousness and joy, peace and liberty, happiness and friendliness, completion and confirmation and equity.
�NOW the Spirit speaketh EXPRESSLY, that in LATTER TIMES some shall depart from the FAITH, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocracy (Hearst, DuPont, Anslinger, & etc.)...COMMANDING to abstain from MEATS (Grk., �broma�, articles specifically allowed or forbidden by Mosaic law, as opposed to, �brosis�, any old meat or food in general.), which God created to be received with thanksgiving of them which BELIEVE & KNOW THE TRUTH. For every creature (created thing, stuff) of God is good, and nothing to be refused...�
--1 Timothy 4:1-4
�AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.�--Jesus
�NOW thanks be to God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the SAVOUR of His KNOWLEDGE by us in EVERY PLACE (Grk., �topos� place, spot, standing, POSITION & CONDITION, where.).
--2 Corinthians 2:14
�But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the SIMPLICITY that is Christ (Grk., �Christos�, ANOINTED ONE.).�
--2 Corinthians 11:3
�The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and THE (definite article!) COMMUNION OF THE HOLY GHOST, be with you.
--2 Corinthians 13:14
�Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how ALL THE FATHERS WERE UNDER THE (definite article) CLOUD, and all passed through the sea; and were ALL BAPTIZED UNTO MOSES IN THE CLOUD & in the sea; & DID ALL EAT THE SAME SPIRITUAL MEAT (Grk., �broma�, articles specifically ALLOWED OR FORBIDDEN by Mosaic law.).�
--1 Corinthians 10:1-3
�But I have ALL & ABOUND: I am FULL, having received...the things from you, AN ODOUR OF A SWEET SMELL, A SACRIFICE acceptable, well-pleasing to God.�
�For though I should BOAST somewhat more of OUR AUTHORITY, which the Lord hath given us for EDIFICATION & NOT FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION, I should not be ashamed.�
--2 Corinthians 10:8
�...the God hath anointed thee with THE OIL OF GLADNESS above thy fellows (Psalm 45:7).�
�But ye have an UNCTION from the Holy One, and ye know all things...the same ANOINTING teacheth you of ALL THINGS... [&] ye shall abide in Him.�
--1 John 2:20-27
�NOW I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, & KEEP THE ORDINANCES, as I delivered them to you.�
--1 Corinthians 11:2
The truth that sets us free is a knowledge of liberty to be in the Spirit, even under tyranny. This is the simplicity of �Christos�. The communion of the Holy Ghost, or Spirit is the common spiritual meat of inhaling the clouds of smoke of the ancient Jewish formal worship of YHWH. John the Baptist said that Jesus will baptize with the holy Spirit & Fire. St Paul thanked his friends in Philippi for �AN ODOUR OF A SWEET SMELL, A SACRIFICE (Grk., �thusia�, from, �thuo�. TO BLOW SMOKE), and stated that he was thereby satiated & aboundingly satisfied. The ordinances St. Paul delivered to the Corinthians were the ordinances of incense & anointing with the oil of joy & gladness, the Cannabis-rich �shemen�, from the primary root, �SHAMAN�, meaning to be oily, to wax plentious, to increase. To know of all things is merely a reference to having a greater awareness, opened senses, as referred to in Isaiah 61:1-3, the testimony of Jesus, recorded in Luke 4:18-19, the �Pneuma� of prophecy.
The first reference to incense in the Bible is, �And this is The Offering which ye shall take...oil for the light, SPICES for Anointing oil (shemen), & for SWEET INCENSE.� (EXODUS 25:3&6). These words are found again in Exodus 35:8&28, leading some to argue the samw spices are used for SWEET INCENSE as for anointing oil, and not the same as the �perfume, a confection�, as found in Exodus 30:34-35. This perfume is a �confection� (Heb., �roqach, thinly aromatic, as opposed to �q(e)toreth bosm�, which contains �Kaneh Bosm�. Q(e)toreth is a fumigation of incense in a close place that could drive out the occupants. Q(e)toreth means TO SMOKE, i.e. turn into fragrance by FIRE (Holy Spirit & Fire), especially as an act of worship. Q(e)toreth comes from the primary root, �qatar, which also means TO JOIN, and is the primary root for q(e)tar, (fig.) a riddle, & a �JOINT�.

||"All the while my BREATH is in me, and the SPIRIT of God is (where?!) in my nostrils."
"Who can number the *CLOUDS in wisdom?"
"Let my prayer be set before thee as INCENSE; and the lifting up of my hands as the EVENING SACRIFICE."
"Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense (Heb., �l(e)bonah�, from its whiteness or perhaps that of its smoke; [frank-] incense.)& ALL POWDERS of the merchants (apothecaries were merchants too)?"
POWDERS, "abaqah", *VOLATILE, LIGHT PARTICLES, DUST.
CLOUDS, "shachaq", *POWDER, SMALL DUST (mingled wine, wisdom?!).
INCENSE, "q(e)toreth", heavy fumigation, *TO SMOKE, fragrance by fire.
SACRIFICE, "minchah", gift, oblation (*USUALLY BLOODLESS).
BREATH, "n(e)shamah", VITAL BREATH, puff, breeze.
SPIRIT, "RUWACH", to blow, to exhale violently (*TO COUGH SMOKE), MIND, BREATH EQUATED WITH QUICKENED UNDERSTANDING, BLAST, SMELL.
Please note that breath and Spirit are not the same.
"...and golden vials FULL OF ODOURS, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sung a new song...& THE SMOKE OF THE INCENSE, WITH THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS, ASCENDED UP BEFORE GOD...for the TESTIMONY OF JESUS IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY ("RUWACH & PNEUMA)."
--Revelation 5:8, 8:4 & 19:10
"Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard, Spikenard and saffron; CALAMUS (�kaneh, Kanna, Cana�) and Cinnamon, with all trees of (FRANK-) incense; myrrh and aloes, with ALL THE CHIEF SPICES." --Solomon's Song 4:13-14
CHIEF, "rosh", THE HEAD PLACE, CHIEF (-EST) PLACE (Remember "place" is "meqomah", a place, spot or standing, & A CONDITION OF THE MIND.), high (-est), principal, sum and top.
SPICES, "bosem, bosm", sweet smell, fragrance, aromatic "Kaneh-bosm"
The Chief of all Spices is Cannabis, the Head Spice.
"Feed your head." --Solomon & The Doormouse
JUST SAY, "KNOW!!!"
THE "TESTIMONY OF JESUS" IS ISAIAH 61:1-3, AS RECORDED IN LUKE 4:18-19. When St. Paul wrote of MIND RENEWAL, he was referring to Christ's claim to THE GREAT MESSIANIC PROPHECY OF SENSUAL, INTELLECTUAL, AND SPIRITUAL RENEWAL BY THE OPENING OF THE SENSES, MIND EXPANSION, HAPPINESS & REJOICING INSTEAD OF MOURNING & DEPRESSION, & A GREATER AWARENESS OF ALL THINGS (I JOHN 2:20 &27).
"LIKEWISE THE SPIRIT ALSO HELPETH OUR INFIRMITIES."
"AGAPAO", the Greek word for the social & moral Love of the summation of the Big 10. If we manifest agapao in our lives, we are not subject to the Law. What American "civil" laws are anti-Christ?!
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even this; Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbor AS thyself (not instead of, AS)... [and] if ye be led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law... [and] the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE ("agapao"), JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, TEMPERANCE: AGAINST SUCH THERE IS NO LAW."
--Galatians 5:14, 18, 22 &23
So, if you are one who would rather throw up for the rest of your life than hear another word about Jesus, consider the "social man", as did Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison...

||SOLOMON'S "DELEGATED INFLUENCES":
"Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars: she hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table. She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places in the city, Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Come, eat & drink of the wine which I have mingled."
"There is treasure to be desired and OIL in the dwelling of the wise."
"OINTMENT & PERFUME rejoice the heart."
"Give STRONG DRINK unto him that is ready to perish."
"A wise man's eyes are IN HIS HEAD."
"Let thy HEAD lack no OINTMENT."
"...and let your soul delight itself in FATNESS."
KEYWORDS IN HEBREW/CHALDEE:
STRONG DRINK is, "shekar", an intoxicant, from, "shakar", to satiate with stimulating drink or INFLUENCE ("delegated influence").
OIL & OINTMENT are both, "shemen", and the heated shemen was not only absorbed through the skin, but was ingested with other foods.
PER-FUME is, "q(e)toreth", a fumigation of incense smoke in a close place, so much so as to drive out the occupants.
HEAD is, "rosh", the chief (-est) place="m(e)qomah", sum, top, & HIGH.
FATNESS is, "shemen", that nasty old Cannabis-rich olive oil again.
So, it sounds like Solomon & Isaiah were saying the same thing as the door-mouse.
"Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and write grievousness THEY HAVE PRESCRIBED (man-made drugs); to turn aside the needy from JUSTICE (JUST US?), and take away the RIGHT from the poor of my people (Marijuana Tax Act of 1937), that widows may be their prey, and they may rob the father-less. And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? To whom will you flee for help? And will ye leave your glory? Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners (our glutted courtrooms & prisons!!!), and they shall fall under the slain (death penalty)."
"For so the Lord said unto me, I will take my REST, and CONSIDER in my DWELLING PLACE like a clear heat upon HERBS, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. For afore the harvest, WHEN THE 'BUD' IS PERFECT (WHY BEFORE THE HARVEST WHEN THE BUD IS PERFECT? THC IS AT IT'S PEAK IN THE BUD OF THE FEMALE PLANT JUST PRIOR TO POLLINATION, which is certainly perfection, AND BEFORE THE HARVEST!!!)"
REST, "shaqat" prim. Root; repose, idle, quiet, still, be in rest (meditation).
CONSIDER, "nabat", prim. root; to scan. i.e. LOOK INTENTLY AT; by implication TO REGARD WITH PLEASURE (with dilated pupils)..
DWELLING PLACE, "m(e)qomah makowm", means a place spot or standing, & A CONDITION OF THE MIND, by implication, FIXED & CONFIRMED.
HERBS, "owr", (lit. & metaph.) GLORIOUS, SHINE, SET ON FIRE, HAPPINESS, BRIGHT & CLEAR (with dilated pupils).
BUD, "perach", from, "parach", break forth. TO SPREAD; SPECIFICALLY TO FLY (as extending the wings); fig. TO MAKE FLY, SPREAD, ABUNDANCE.
PERFECT, "tamam", prim. Root; COMPLETE, in a good sense and a bad sense, lit. or fig., trans. Or intrans., CONSUME, COME TO THE FULL (full of ruwach & pneuma), be all gone: be all here, be WASTED: be whole.
"There went up a smoke out of his nostrils...Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled...[and] the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the Lord, AT THE BLAST OF THE BREATH OF HIS NOSTRILS."
"HIGH" IN ANCIENT HEBREW/CHALDEE:
"bamah", to be high, high place, elevation.
"gaboahh", from, "gabah", *TO MAKE HIGH (fig.) FULLY ELATED.
"gadol", from, "gado", to twist, *TO BE LARGE IN MIND, WAX, INCREASE (in any sense [thus, EXPANSION]).

||"The SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me: because the Lord hath ANOINTED me to preach good tidings unto the MEEK; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim LIBERTY to the captives, and THE OPENING OF THE PRISON to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to com-
fort all that mourn; to appoint (Rx) unto them who mourn in Zion, to give to them BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THE OIL OF JOY FOR MOURNING...[and] the GLORY of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts; and in this PLACE will I give PEACE...[for] he will baptize you with the Holy SPIRIT & Fire...for though I should BOAST somewhat more of our AUTHORITY, which the Lord hath given us for EDIFICATION (Hebrews 1:9), & NOT FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION, I should not be ashamed...but I have ALL, & ABOUND: I AM FULL, having received the things from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a SACRIFICE acceptable, well pleasing to God."--Isaiah 61:1-3, Haggai 2:9, Matthew 3:11, 2Corinthians 10:8, & Philippians 4:18

It is an historic fact that Thomas Jefferson studied the life & teachings of Jesus in great depth (with "opened senses"), and his version of the four gospels are compiled into one, and is published as "The Jefferson Bible". He said, "The Christian Religion...is a religion of all others most friendly to LIBERTY, SCIENCE, & THE FREEST *#EXPANSION OF THE HUMAN *#MIND." Every member of Congress receives a copy of The Jefferson Bible when sworn into office...
Why did TJ use these particular words to describe Christianity?! Why do the definitions of the KEYWORDS of the ancient Hebrew/Chaldee, and the Classical Greek so precisely describe Cannabis intoxication?!
NO LAW CAN BE ENFORCED WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE!!!
"Hemp is of first necessity to our nation�s wealth & security.
"A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement.
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.
"If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to break it, HE IS OBLIGATED TO DO SO." !!!
