Is This A Good Representation Of The Grim Reaper In My Book

The grim reaper?

The grim reaper is a personification of Death. that comes to collect the souls of those that died in the original version. also a guide to the after life. and the personification of entropy.
but look at a tarot card of death .those before him are sick and old and welcome his embrace . thoase behind him have been returned to life.
In death there is life and in life there is death.

Is the Grim Reaper - Satan with another name?

different people, grim reaper is death, the one who removes souls from this world

Satan is the devil, ruler of hell cast down from heaven after defying god

you don't usually hear both in the same story cause Grim is more Ancient Greek, and Satan is more Christian

What objects represent death?

Hello & welcome. I will try to be as brief as possible. The covering of the face is not required by the consensus of islamic scholars and the idea behind the hijab in general is to protect the woman, but as with anything the bottom line with this is that is something determined by God, not by human beings, So when a woman wears it, she is fulfilling one of her responsibilities towards God. Yes men should control themselves and Muslim men know very well that according to Islam, the first look (at a woman) can be forgiven, but anything after that it is considered a sin on them ({the men not the women). So both men and woman have a responsibility to be modest in dress and behavior. As for make up, I agree it is a contradiction and I personally do not wear it when I am in public. It is the same with tight clothing. Many people see the hijab as just a head covering when in fact it is the total package. Of course people vary in their degrees of faith and Muslims are no different. As for art, not all forms of art are banned by islam. And to be honest, there is great division regarding the issue of drawing and music in particular. Many scholars are of the opinion that drawing, even of animals for example is only forbidden if the intentuion is to use such drawings in some kind of worship. Other scholars disagree and say it is haram no matter what. With Music it is the same thing. Some scholars say it is categorcally forbidden, while others say it is ok as long as the lyrics are not dirty and it does not distract the person from doing the obligatory actions of islam. Lastly, the issue of himosexuality is pretty black and white in Islam as it is with the other Abrahamic faiths. Such acts are considered a sin and there is no way to get around it. Marriage in Islam exists only between men and women. We cannot go against what is written in the Quran and the condemnation of homosexuality is crystal clear in the Quran. Unlike the other issues, there is no wiggle room. I wanted to be brief, but I failed miserably, sorry :)

Saw the grim reaper in my dream?

Well, the first and most important thing that this could mean is that it was a dream. Dreams are said to be memories stored and/or could simply be a dream. However if your looking for the deeper meaning to this I will try and provide what I can. I think that the reaper can represent either some bad things will happen to you but you will find the strength to bare it and make these bad things go away, which could be the Bracelet. Your dad appearing in this dream could be the good spirit that will help you get through this depression. Another meaning that this dream can hold is the death of another loved one.

Can death (Grim reaper) be female?

Yes, why not?

In fact, I think it may make a very good twist on the notion that Grim Reaper is always male. And somehow always evil and causes death.

Ultimately, the "job" of the Grim Reaper is to be there at the time of one's death - to collect the soul. The Grim Reaper does not cause death - only is there at time of death. I don't know why stories make the Grim Reaper so "grim". Collecting the souls was not meant to be evil. Death can be grim - but is a fact. Why not make Grim Reaper a friendly and helpful guide to the after life. And why, for that matter, does he have to be a guy?

Grim Reaper does not necessarily have to the the bad, evil thing everyone thinks and puts in stories. Could very well be a caring, kind, nurturing female. If the point of the Grim Reaper is to collect one's soul at the time of death - then why not a kind female - without the skeleton face - without the fear invoked - maybe dressed in white - whose job it is to assist the soul be freed and taken to wherever it is going.

There is an old Twilight Zone episode of an old lady afraid of death and kept herself locked up so the "Grim Reaper" wouldn't find her. But it was her time and one cannot avoid the certainty of death. The "Grim Reaper" came for her in the guise of a young handsome man - I think Robert Redford played the part. Did not come to cause her death - only came to help transition.

I read and have read a lot of books and stories over the years. I would totally read and enjoy this type of thing if well written. About a female - who helps with the transition from life to death. And "reaps" the souls to keep them safe.

The most likely answer is that you've stumbled upon a Halloween decoration or costume, or perhaps a cosplay thing. If this is the case, it means someone has decided to continue the tradition of dressing up as a skeleton to portray Death (even though Death comes in many forms). If the decoration or costume is particularly convincing, perhaps you could compliment the owner of their skill.However, if you are seeing a true Reaper (and you will know, don't worry. There are some things even the best costumes just can't capture), it means you have entered a Limbo space and that is the form Death has chosen to use (this either means that you have died, or you have a strong connection to magic for some reason). Don't fear, Death will not harm you.

The typical Grim Reaper?A scythe.Undertaker from Black Butler can be represented in this, as his Death Scythe is really…a scythe. I realize he isn't the typical Grim Reaper that's a skeleton, but I don't want to write a typical answer.However, it depends which Grim Reapers you are referring to. I watch anime, so there have been a couple forms and weapons of the Grim Reaper. In the world of Black Butler, Grim Reapers have Death Scythes they use to collect souls. However, they are various tools that are usually used for gardening. While Undertaker has an actual scythe, everyone else's Death Scythe is different.William T. Spears- Pole clippersGrell Sutcliff- ChainsawRonald Knox- LawnmowerEric Slingby- SawAlan Humphries- SlasherOthello- Japanese sickleRudgar- Hedge trimmerSascha- Could be the camera, Yana never confirmed it.A typical answer with a twist. Otherwise, my answer would have been too short.

In Ancient Roman (and also Norse and Greek) mythology, there was a concept of the three Fates, called Parcae - three women, typically depicted as one young girl (Nona), one woman (Decima), and one old crone (Morta). The young one spun the thread of life, the middle one drew out the length of the thread of each life, and the last one, Morta, cut the thread and determined the manner of each person's death. "Morta" is the Latin root of the Spanish and French words for death (muerte and mort) and English words like mortuary, mortician, etc.  In medieval Europe, there was no real personification of death up until the late middle ages- there was no image of what Death looked like- and yet, this was the time of the bubonic plague, which wiped out a third of the population of Europe, The Spanish Inquisition, wars, etc. So, lots of death. It was during this time, circa the 15th century, that artists in Europe began to depict death as a skeletal figure, often with a scythe, and we got this image of what we now call the Grim Reaper. The term "Grim Reaper," however, didn't actually come around until the 1800's. In Spain, this image of the Grim Reaper was originally called "La Parca," after the Roman Parcae. Interestingly, the Spanish brought this image of La Parca to Latin America and, over time, it fused with indigenous beliefs to give rise to the deity Santa Muerte- sort of a female Grim Reaper-esque folk saint who is hugely popular in contemporary Mexico.

I saw the Grim Reaper in my dream last night, what does it mean?

Okay so I just woke up from a dream where i was babysitting my little sisters. It was nice outside then it all of the sudden snow just piled up on the ground, maybe a foot or 2 of it. For some reason i got a phone call from my mom saying i had to go to a dealership, that my car was ready to be picked up, but if we didn't leave soon that "Death" would come for us. We hurried and i tried to get up all in the car (there are 5 of us and my car is only a 4 seater with a very small back seat) i got in the car stated it up and turned on the defrosters with my foot on the break, the windshield was clear and i screamed for the girls to get in the car with me, as I did i looked over at the beck door (a glass door) and seen the Grim Reaper tapping on he glass watching us. we all finally got in and i put the car into gear and tried to book it out of there to save us. But when i tried to go we just slid further down the hill in my back yard i tried so hard then i looked down at the gear shift and it was in neutral when i looked up the reaper was walking towards the car. That's where i woke up and started writing this. Can anyone tell me what this might mean for me and my sisters? Im so scared it might mean. Please help me.

Thank you,
Lindsey

Ruth 2:3 So she set out and went and gleaned in the field after the reapers, and she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the clan of Elimelech.Gleaners: Were people who gathered pieces of grains or crops that were left behind by Harvesters. This may be perceived as a lowly task of the poor or homeless.Reapers: Was a job for men and they went into the fields first at harvest time to bundle and gather the grain or produce. The reapers gathered the firstfruit of the land, tied it and prepared it for storage, but they left some of the crops on the ground for the poor to glean later.
