Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:55

15:55 O death, where is thy sting? - Which once was full of hellish poison. O hades, the receptacle of separate souls, where is thy victory - Thou art now robbed of all thy spoils; all thy captives are set at liberty. Hades literally means the invisible world, and relates to the soul; death, to the body. The Greek words are found in the Septuagint translation of #Hosea 13:14|. #Isaiah 25:8|

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 15:55

  • Geof Rondeau on 1 Corinthians 15:55
    I am in discussions with a Jew am I told him I believed the Old Testament refered to someone raising from the dead. Messiah specifically. Can you help me with that please?
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 15:55
    Geof: there's a video on YouTube by Stan Telchin. (who was a Jew). He has passed. He has a book with much info in it, where all the Jews fled to.

    His daughter got saved at college. He launched himself to prove that Christianity was all wrong. He ended up getting saved at a conference; when he got home he was happy to find out that his wife had gotten saved too.

    It gives insight into Jewish thought.

    He wrote a book called, Betrayed.

    Mishael I looked at Jews for Jesus and that "messianic Jew" Stan Telchin and I notice they always have that 6 pointed star on their sites. the same 6 pointed star on the Israeli flag.

    Old Testament book of Amos 5:26 But ye (Jews) have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the STAR star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. (what star do Jews carry?)

    New Testament book of Acts 7:43 Yea, ye (Jews) took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the STAR star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

    Who was Moloch? Jeremiah 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto MOLECH Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this ABOMINATION abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

    Unless the book of acts is wrong, the 6 pointed star is tied into the occult with Moloch since it is the only star the Jews have carried for centuries. Personally I find this troubling.

    A Jewish author wrote the book "The Six Pointed Star book" by author O.J. Graham

    He lays it out plain as day from the scripture, history and the occult.

    Personally I find this disturbing for alleged believers using occult symbolism.

    6 pointed star does it equal 666? 6 points, 6 triangles 6....?

    I wrote back but I shifted position and lost

    it :(

    I'm free tomorrow so I'll try to remember what I said lol. Main thing is the Holy Spirit has said that what's going on over there is between Jesus and the nation of Israel. I don't get a vote. God bless you.
