Negotiators, merchants and street vendors to trade the Romans knew two types of business: negotiators (negotiator, businessmen) and the merchants. The bankers were partly negotiatores because they lent money on interest. Also bought and sold commodities traded in bulk or wholesale goods. In some cases argentarii were seen as a subset of the negotiatores and other distinct groups. The argentarii acted as agents in public or private auctions, kept deposits of money for individuals, cashed checks (prescriptio) and currency exchange. They kept strict tabulae books, which were considered as legal evidence in trials. The argentarii sometimes did the same work as the mensarii, public bankers who were appointed by the state. The mercatores were usually commoners or freemen. Were present in all markets in the open or covered shops, manning stalls or hawking goods along the roads.Also present were about Roman military camps during the campaigns, where they sold food and clothing to the soldiers and paid cash for any booty from military activities. Jewish sources, about the third century C., we have some information on Roman Palestine. There the hawkers (Rochel) took spices and perfumes to the rural population. This suggests that the economic benefits of the rule came at least the upper levels of the peasantry.

Edom Edom ( in Hebrew Edom, Tiberian Hebrew Edom) is pronounced like the biblical word for red and, by extension, is usually used to describe the red sandstone of Edom. Edom is also an alternative name means hairy as Esau in Genesis 25:25 Bible In Genesis 25:30 Jacob said to his brother prepared a red dish (lentils) and rights Esau sold his birthright for red pottage, and that that Esau was also called Edom. The book of Genesis mentions the word “red” several times in reference to Esau, thus establishing a connection between the red and he, also because of his reddish hair. Esau’s descendants were called Edomites, and so the place inhabited, so the land became known as Edom. Later the Edomites Edomites were called by the Romans.It is usually located in the land of Edom mountains east of Wadi Arabah on the southern border of Jordan and Israel, extending to the north of the Arabian peninsula. Edom occupied the mountainous region southeast of the Dead Sea, originally called Mount Seir (meaning hairy) another allusion to the name of Esau which means hairy as a fur coat to see (Genesis 25:25) and later known under the name Idumea. And extremely rugged mountainous region.

Until recently it was estimated, based on field studies, that the kingdom of Edom existed only from the eighth century BCEC., and were considered invalid references to this kingdom in the Old Testament, but recent studies, published in 2005 in the journal Antiquity, demonstrate the existence of a kingdom that worked the copper in that region and at the time of King Solomon. We found traces of copper mining during the XII and XI a. C. Samples were also important fortified buildings and metal production on an industrial scale in a city of at least one hundred buildings. Petra or Sela was discovered by Burckhardt in 1812, is at the bottom of a deep cirque excavated by the action of water on the northeast flank of Hor monde. The main gorge called Wadi Musa, a stream runs through this place longitudinally. The rocks have different colors from red to brown, purple and yellow, which adds beauty to the place. There are tombs and temples in ruins, an amphitheater, a triumphal arch. Most of these monuments date back to Roman times.Edomites is a general term that not only are the descendants of Esau, but all those who joined them as the Arabs in the V century BC Edom and seizing the second century C. Nabatean Arabs around 300 a. C. dominated the region and built the city of Petra (Sela) in Jordan today. Their capital was situated on a plateau on a rocky cliff is reached by a narrow gorge. Was impregnable. The inhabitants lived in the crevices of the rocks (Obadiah 3). At the time of Moses had fields, vineyards, wells and a road. Some Edomites settled in southern Judah.

The Danger of Apostasy

But the Spirit explicitly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons (1Ti 4:1). For many years I have heard that is a “great revival”. To my mind, what is preached, that this revival is to fill the Estadio Azteca, that people “feel God” and fall to the ground, filling churches and auditoriums. What does the Bible say about this It is our question. Some of the passages mentioning about these preachers are in the Old Testament and in reality – the context – are passages which refer to the people of Israel. Others mentioned Acts 2.16, where Peter quotes Joel (“pour out my Spirit upon all flesh”), but studying Joel, we believe in the Old Testament the Holy Spirit rested on certain men only. “I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh” implies that it would be no distinction between kings, nobles, and serfs poor. Anyone, regardless of race or social position may be filled with the Holy Spirit. And indeed this prophecy was fulfilled in Acts chapter 2. Are you really in the Bible as “famous final revival What does God say about it “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry to him day and night Do you long with them (8) I tell you will avenge them speedily. But when the Son of Man find faith on earth (Luke 18:7-8) Consider the context of v.8: Jesus gives a parable to pray always and not lose heart, keep us forever in faith and believe that our prayers will always be heard. V.8 The question does not say: “When the son of man: he find a great revival in the land “. This is an important verse to consider (not just read fluently).Lucas used the gr. arrive, get off – that is, there is a clear allusion to the second coming of Jesus. He asks if coming, will he find faith on earth Here faith is the Greek word Pistis: trust in God. Jesus, in context, was talking about trusting God, that he will avenge us and to pray. In the midst of this topic, the teacher asks whether find trust in God If will be rendered to him . The answer – by implication – is NO. This description is contrary to the famous revival of preaching. Rather, the Bible speaks of apostasy in recent times. Hitler said that if you repeat a lie constantly, people will come to believe it as truth. Many have actually come to believe in this revival. But know this: that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2Ti 3:1). This text also states that in the last days will come a great revival. People will be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, (3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, intemperate, cruel, haters of good, (4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, (5) that a form of godliness but denying the power thereof to do with them.
