    Can some one tell me how Adam was a type of Him that was to come? and Yahushuah was the second Adam? please don't say that because they are each the first of a kind i.e. By Adam came sin and death and Yahushuah brought righteousness and life. because that does not make them the same but rather it makes them the opposite. If anything it makes Adam anti-Christ. HOW AND WHEN WERE THEY ALIKE?

    Thank you Dianne, I really appreciate several points you make in your comment. Like my friend, I used to be mostly in my head.... I interpreted everything by my own understanding... I was raised in the Catholic Church, and never heard the gospel! I left the Church, and decided to learn meditation and ended up in a Buddhist meditation center, where I had a major conversion experience to Christ. But I also came from philosophy background, and was waaayyy in my head, and before I was born again, the "gospel" simply did not make sense to me, it offended my reasoning. I was in my "natural man" as you point out, and could not discern the things of God. I think my friend is like this, he is very much in his thinker, in his head. The idea of Jesus dying for HIS sins is offensive to him, he thinks probably that he would never hurt a fly, much less ask another to die for him. He has not seen that Christ was God..... I think of Jesus turning to Peter and saying, "Get thee behind me Satan, for you savor the things of man, not the things of God..." when Peter denied that Jesus would have to die so horribly . . . . so my friend, all he sees is "human sacrifice" and murder, not the mystery.

    Honestly, the Holy Spirit's Voice is such amazing grace...... and so is the Word of God..... To be born again is to be

    freed from the heavy coat of Religion AND the heavy coat of Agnosticism...... God Bless you, and thank you also for these scriptures..... Everyone's comments on this thread have edified me greatly.....

    Chris, this is very helpful, thank you. I find when I try to be "reasonable" about the gospel,

    I get all jumbled up, and feel like a completely unprofitable servant. Then I get discouraged, and

    stop.. For this reason, I have put aside the idea of evangelizing, thinking only certain people can do this.....

    But I know i can grow in the Lord, and gain clarity in my mind to share the gospel. When you say,

    my friend needs to see that his and our sins have separated us from God..... how can he see this

    except by a revelation from the Lord? I am praying that the Lord give him that revelation, because

    he has said, he doesn't believe in "sin" or "sinners." He follows a kind of Advaita, Hindu path where

    God is in all beings, shining out love.... So the Cross is nowhere in this worldview... But I am praying

    myself to be a clearer witness, and i am being asked to fast as well, for the sake of the salvation of others

    and to be myself sanctified in Him.... Your response blessed me, the soundness of it. Thank you.

    I also was lifted out of a past of astrology, and lust for occult knowledge and powers. Jesus lifted me right out.

    Thank you very much for this response, it rang loud and true in my spirit. You also seem to read my spirit

    accurately I have felt extremely timid to speak the gospel to others. The words come out all jumbled

    and I try to make it reasonable, try to make it logical, but I end up leaning on my own understanding, and I fall down weak. And I think, "I sound like a fool." Well, I am willing to be a fool for Christ. But I want to be effective

    for the kingdom... Anyway, My friend is a very kind-hearted man, he hates all violence. He hates confrontations.

    I am afraid also, that he is, without knowing it, an enemy of the Cross of Christ. He has seen my conduct

    over the years, and he thanks me for staying with him through thick and thin. He doesn't know I have been

    praying for his soul, doing battle in the unseen realms for him.... I just outwardly love him. But lately, I

    have been led to share my faith with him, and this is where he said, "I never liked the idea of Jesus dying for

    my sins..... or the idea of human sacrifice!' So I will fast and pray now. My deep desire for his salvation

    is directly linked to my desire to be established in the faith myself, and to rise to new levels of clarity in the

    gospel. Thank you so much for your words, the word FAST and PRAY rang out like a clarion call......

    I believe that in Genesis 1: 26 when God said, Let us make man in our image. He was referring to Himself and His heavenly host. This is where the different races came from. He made both men and women and told them to go and be fruitful and replenish the earth.

    This is the only logical explanation I can come up with. In Chapter 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished and all the HOST of them. 2. And on the seventh day God ENDED his work which he had made; and rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

    I truly believe God gives us the answers to every question possible that we may have right in His Word. All we have to do is ask for His guidance to seek and find it. I too had asked this question when I first read the scriptures and I truly believe this was God's answer to my question. So the "man to till the ground" in verse 5 is the man Et Ha Adham which God breathe life in his nostrils is the man in which Christ would come from. And God made Eve, from the Rib ( curve, helix-DNA ). Et Ha Adham refers to Eve as mother of all living because Christ is the Father of all living (all that believe in Him). Remember that Christ is God incarnate! Christ says in the scriptures, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father). The Bible is God, Christ History ... who He is, who He came from, where He came from, what He did for us.

    I hope this helps ... clear your mind of all that you been taught and seek Him with a clear mind and let His word speak to you. Pray that He gives you the wisdom and understanding of His word. He will answer all that seek Him. Praise and Glory to God!

    GM Chris GBU But you do greatly err on Psalms 82 ITS prophetic of the Parable of the Sower and his seed the Words Jesus is saying to humanity And to whom His Words came ( his Seeds ) it made them Gods And John 10 is saying to whom the word came that good seed it made them Gods and Jesus said those scriptures cannot be broken. The parable of the sower and his precious seed are exactly the same as Psalms 82 ( THE WORDS GOD HAS SAID ) I HAVE SAID YE ARE GODS AND THE SEEDS OF THE SOWER ARE THE WORDS OF GOD. But you will die as men John said when i saw him i fell at his feet as dead. When God made that great PROMISE that Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven God swore by himself impling he himself was gonna be multiplied as the stars of heaven thats y Jesus is saying to whom the WORD ( the seed of the Sower came it made them Gods ) Chris and there are not any lower case or upper case in Hebrews when God said ye are Gods its simply the result of the sower and his seed the LIVING WORD AS MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE. AS GOD IS SPIRIT. And is any man hears my words and keeps them ( those good seeds ) my Father and I will come and take our abode with him. Then a Marriage where we will be made 1 with God.

    This blessed me hugely. Thank you. I am saved, and baptized, but the Lord is calling me to

    a deeper walk, and I have allowed too many other voices to get in the way. I will turn now, and

    be still and listen, and by His grace follow. Thank you brother. Btw, I am called somehow to

    the country of Norway, the Lord keeps laying this country on my heart, to pray for them. I study

    Norwegian, and my grandparents came from there. Your name, "Fred," in Norwegian, means 'peace.'

    How is it that His children hear His voice, and then we hear the Hebrews say, faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen! A voice, with evidence of things unseen? Pretty amazing how the word of God instructs and provides even in the midst of a world of unbelief! How the voice of the savior can still be heard unto those who are listening. All who do not believe these things , will only experience the conviction of the sin that resides in all of mankind! The conviction , the very curse that we have inherited from Adam! If this is not enough, and yet they still deny Him. Denying the blood of His dear Son, the blood that cleanses from all sin! Your and mine redemption. Repent and be baptized!

    GM Chris GBU no offence but you you do greatly err . Psalms 82 is about something God is saying I have said ye are Gods ( there are no upper case or lower case in Hebrew ) Its Prophetic of the parable of the sower and his seed the word which is something Jesus is saying his Words are his Seeds and our Lord Said to whom the Word came as it made them Gods .1 John says the WORD IS GOD. Whatsoever a man sows that will he reap and Jesus is sowing the very seed of God thus he willl reap Gods that was the Great Promise that Christ wd be multiplied as the Stars of Heaven and here is the Kicker God swore by his very self when he made that great Promise thus its God himself that wants a posterity Christ was just the 1st born of many brethren and Jesus is the sower of the good seed thus he will be Multiplied as the stars of Heaven. Thats y Jesus refers to the H.G as the Promise he is the multiplication of Gods in humanity, THE PROMISE WHICH IS GOD, VIA HIS SEED THE WORD. SOMETHING JESUS IS SAYING his parable ( I have said, his seeds ye are Gods. Remember Jesus made clay of his spittle ( his Word and the earth humanity ) A marriage, even in the natural in a marriage 2 are made 1 ,we are gonna be made 1 with God b/c of his precious seed the living WORD Jesus even tells us if any man hears my words and keeps them my FATHER AND I WILL come and take our abode with him . We are gonna birth a Baby Christ which is the H.G. the Child of Promise ,Thats y Jesus is saying that which is born of the spirit is SPIRIT AS GOD IS SPIRIT TH H.G. OUR NEW INNERMAN. Chris Jesus is sowing the very seeds of God and he will not have a crop failure,My words cannot return unto me void. Unto us a CHILD IS BORN. AND UNLESS YOU RECEIVE THE kINGDOM OF GOD AS A LIL CHILD ETC

    In these days, do you hear his voice? Or ,are you listening to someone else? These others you hear are climbing up another way, they see your conviction, your steadfastness and are trying to keep you from your Shepherd!

    His voice is specific, they will try and keep you from Him, do not fear as He calls and keeps you. He will lead as you follow. Be not afraid , for He cares for you!

    Do you see the still water, Do you see the green pastures, be not afraid of the shadows they can do nothing! Come to His table, sit down and take what He has prepared for you. The shepherd of your soul! Repent and be baptized

  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 82
    Hello Samuel. Psalm 82 is a clear condemnation to the unjust judges of Israel & their rulers. Where we see "gods" in verses 1 & 6, in Hebrew it is 'Elohim', otherwise rendered as god, divines, judges & rulers. In this Psalm, 'gods' clearly refers to judges who judged unjustly (vv 2-5) & would therefore hear their Judge (the LORD) pronounce their verdict of death (vv 6,7).

    Jesus, in John 10:34 quotes this Psalm. You might remember the occasion: the Jews took up stones to stone Jesus for blasphemy (i.e. they believed that Jesus was a mere man & not on equal terms with God). Then Jesus responded to them: "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" As it was in Psalm 82, so the same condemnation is given by Jesus here, to these Jews who came 'upholding the Law & determining whether a man be condemned or not'. As God condemned those unjust judges in the Psalm, so Jesus is telling them that if they are in a position of being His judge now, why should they condemn Him for being the Son of God, One Who did God's Works in the Name & Power of God Almighty? ( John 10:34-38).

    I share this extra bit on John 10 to give the connection with Psalm 82, as Jesus referred to it, that the Elohim spoken of there, applied even now, as these Jewish leaders behaved no differently to those judges in the Psalm, who judged unjustly & not with righteous judgement. And because of their responsible position, judges, society leaders & spiritual leaders who behave wickedly will receive the greater condemnation ( Matthew 23:14,23).

    I actually pray Ezekiels prayer when I face dead situations, or dead in heart people. They have one rant and refuse to hear truth. Something about that passage give hope where there seems to be none.

    John 3. We must be BORN AGAIN to be made alive spiritually. It is the moment when you are sealed with the Holy Spirit. He comes to dwell within your born again spirit. Read John 16. Underline verse 22: "I will see you again" !!!

    We want to go with Jesus. Turn over to 2 Peter 3.

    GLOBAL WARMING is a lie of the devil. This Earth is warming up for the END.

    Verse 13: new heavens and a new earth. And Jesus will see us again... hallelujah!

    Matthew 24 and Luke 21 are THE SIGNS we are to be identifying. They're described as birth pains. For instance: at the beginning California caught on fire every other year; then every year. Now they are burning continuously because of crippling drought. This year drought, floods and fire. Don't get caught saying what 2 Peter 3:4 says.

    WHY WOULD WE NOT BE LOOKING FOR NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH??!

    Jesus is Returning whether we want to go or not. And maybe you should go on YouTube and watch some of the Apocalypse or Rapture movies to get a grip on a soon to be reality. Some of them are awful, but it gets the point across.

    That's why some of us are always preaching on the "Rapture". God is not being mean. This has been in this Bible from Genesis to Present Day. Thousands of years! We just happen to be the Terminal Generation. Rabbi Schneider said a generation is 70 years. I'm 70 yrs old :D

    Evangelize loved ones, friends, neighbors, people at our grocery store, etc. This is the time to do it.

    It's just like the devil to get everyone on social media, Twitter, etc, NOT TALKING TO EACH OTHER FACE TO FACE. We're all holed up in our secret identities, talking to people we may have never met...do we know if they're born again?

    Hi believer. I have heard such remarks before. Generally, they are based on an erroneous understanding of the Gospel & the Bible, or as a support for validating their position, or even a bias against Jesus, the Bible, or Christians. The fact that he is a close friend, gives you a wonderful opportunity for him to listen to you attentively & observe your life: something that many do not have as a special witness.

    If the Gospel seems nonsense to him, he needs to maybe understand mankind's need of a saviour in a contemporary manner. The best example of this would be when someone reaches out to another in distress, disregarding his own life to save him. It could be a swimmer drowning, one hanging precariously over a cliff, or even one facing a total financial loss where suicide is the only option. A witness to any of those events could simply abstain from offering help since their own life or finances may be in great jeopardy. But how grateful would the one in peril be if someone would actually reach out, disregarding his own life, to save a stranger's life.

    Your friend needs to see that his (& our) sins that have separated us from God & made us to be a vile people before Him, have not brought on immediate judgement from God. Rather, He gave of Himself, in His Son Jesus Christ, to reach out to us to save us from what we rightly deserved ( 1 Peter 3:18; John 15:13). So Jesus' death on the Cross was not a "human sacrifice" (as men consider it to mean), but was a willingness, out of great love, to take our place & bear God's Judgement for us. So we can say "What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins & griefs to bear", as only One who truly loved & cared for us would willingly lay down His Life for us.

    And yes, cannibalism or satanic practices are certainly not part of biblical teaching & not the understanding of true believers. What he might have seen or heard of elsewhere is not from the Bible. May the Lord give you His Wisdom & Words to share with your friend.

    Theresa Haggerty, Again I profess not to be a scholar but I am a born again believer and have been filled with His spirit since at a tender age of 9yrs old. To better understand vs 23 we have to look at the whole conversation between the woman and Jesus but time would not permit me to give you a dissertation on it. Lets focus on what Jesus said not only in vs23 but also in vs24. Two things we need to be true worshippers, spirit and truth, but not just any spirit or any truth a true spirit and a true truth or doctrine. So how do I get this true spirit? David said it this way in Ps.51:10 create in me a clean heart oh Lord and renew a right spirit within me. It's a continuous process. Look at these scriptures John 14:14-18 and Eph.4 I strongly suggest you read entire chapters to put these scriptures in the right context. This is going to open up to more questions but bear with me. Lets look at truth. What is truth? Pilate asked the same thing and Jesus said I am. He is the way, the truth and life John 14:6, also He said Thy word is truth in John 17:17. How do I worship in truth? You obey is word, the Bible. We can not have a true spirit if we are not living up to His word and we can not have true doctrine with out a true spirit. Hope this helped. In Christ, Gerald.

    Hi Earnest, I've seen this question a lot asked here. I did an advanced search on this site and found two here:

    Short answer: I don't believe anyone goes anywhere until they are judged by God. And I don't believe that happens until Jesus comes. Those who claim otherwise rely on interpreting about 3 verses in a specific way which I believe is an improper interpretation and inconsistent with other scripture. Regardless, this is not a salvation issue and not worth anyone having divisions among the body over. You will find scripture support in the thread.

    God bless...

    Only the wicked and unrighteous will be in the fire. You are saved if you obey all 10 commandments and believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. Look in revelation 14: 12. Paul had referred to christions in the churches he wrote to as saints.

    Yes if someone was save they can fall if not repent they are not saved. We must repent to the Lord. Only the lord knows what is in people's hearts. Look at 1 samual 16:7.

    I hope this helps my friend. God bless.
