    I believe it means.. If one truly seeks God and is pure of heart God knows this.. Anything is possible. Therefore, is it crazy to imagine that God is not capable of changing the words of any written word, be it the bible or a comic book, and communicating with an individual instantly.. One on one. After all, God Is The Word. Alive inside the Living Word. Ask and You Shall Receive, right..? The bible tells me so.. Anyway, just my thoughts and feelings on the subject.. Thanks for listening or reading Lol Attention: pay it

    When we are born again ,naturally we are babies : Babies cannot eat meat : therefore we desire the sincere milk of the word . I was not able to walk when I was born : Had to grow . As I grow in God's word , when the time is right I will start on more solid food : Growing process : As of now after 38 years , I am still growing and I am able to digest meatier word of God . But grow in Grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ !!!! Yes !! Amen !!

    This Verse is so reassuring. Being Dead to our sins simply means by the holy spirit power living in us we no longer have a desire to sin. Jesus ambitions and desires are all we crave and want. How amazing Jesus is and how sufficient his grace is.

    Blessed are those of the body of Christ, his Church. Our God, the Holy One of Israel our Savior, is risen, He LIVES! Wisdom of Solomon 3:1 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them. Luke 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him. Romans 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more death hath no more dominion over him.

    Heavenly Father, make us to walk in humility, righteousness and ever-increasing faith, that we may serve you in truth and charity through Christ Jesus our LORD who is most blessed for ever and ever! 1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
