Everything Oahspe - About Oahspe Study - Freedoms Day - Also Called Fallen Swords Day January 15, 2010

Salutations to all, and Praise to Jehovih, Almighty Creator for the Faithist Holy Day of Fallen Swords Day, January 1st, also called Freedom's Day (as given in 1891 Edition).

Below is an excerpt from the Oahspe Standard Edition in Modern Language regarding Fallen Sword's Day:

CHAPTER 17 Inspiration

The Fallen Sword's Day fn1340

34/17.1. As Jehovih, through His God, delivered Guatama's slaves into freedom, and so, dealt the final blow to general slavery, so Jehovih blessed that day, and sanctified it. fn1341

34/17.2. And He gave to man, as the master's sign in the lodge, A hand pointing toward a pen, signifying, I have proved this mightier than the sword.

34/17.3. And Jehovih gave to the members in the lodge to answer in the sign, Clasped hands, and looking upward, signifying, In Your Praise, Jehovih!

34/17.4. Jehovih said Remember the day of proclamation of freedom, for it is My day, which I bequeath to you as a day of freedom in all righteous jollification, which you shall keep every year, and commemorate, to the end of the world.

fn 1340 sometimes known as Freedom's Day

fn 1341 The slaves were proclaimed free on January 1, 1863. Here is the story: On September 22, 1862, in the midst of a civil war, President Abraham Lincoln of the United States of America issued a preliminary emancipation proclamation to be put formally into effect, if necessary, on January 1, 1863. If those states in rebellion continued till then, the proclamation was to go into effect and their slaves declared free.

On that day of January 1, 1863, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation and it was publicly proclaimed. The slaves were free! The war could not free the slaves, but the pen did! The pen was proved mightier than the sword!

(In reading the corporeal history of these events, one must keep in mind that Oahspe is giving the spiritual side of the history, or rather, the history as seen from a spiritual perspective. Thus while the Oahspe authors relate primary motivations and broad sweeps, they cannot, in a generalized book like Oahspe, elaborate on, or even mention, contributory fluctuations in policy or war events, nor other things that from a mortal perspective may seem to be important.

Thus, while the Emancipation Proclamation did not end all slavery in the world, nor in the USA (it took a later, 1865, constitutional amendment to do that), it nevertheless, from the spiritual perspective of wisdom, dealt the final blow to general slavery.) ||

Peace, Love, Freedom and Jehovih's Light to All,

Seventh Era Faithists
