    Adam did die. Not that minute but later.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 9
    That was interesting to read Jay. I do agree with your understanding of the soul & spirit of man. I could further state that the soul finds its fuller meaning in the personality & emotions of the individual, hence the soul, being an immaterial part, not only reveals the life of a person, but also his/her character.

    'Ruach' is clearly different to 'psykhe' & as you stated also comes from God giving life (breath) to the body which clothes the soul. As well, I understand man's spirit from God also functions as the means that God, by His Spirit, can communicate with man. Romans 8:16 speaks of this interaction. The spirit in us enables us to look beyond the immediate & temporal, to the One Who brought it all together, though many today stifle it preferring to understand their world & themselves, only through the soul (by reasoning & logic).

    Yet you write that on death, man's spirit doesn't return to God, whether to life or eternal death, rather it remains in 'limbo'. Am I understanding you correctly? Could you provide some Bible references or expand this thought further? Why I ask this, is that Eccl 12:7 which you quoted, speaks of this returning, or else, that man's spirit has to have a destiny, whether in a body or in a location. I understand the Ecclesiastes reference suggesting that, just as God gives a new born baby a spirit, so at death of that body, the spirit is then released & returned back to God - like a loan from God to enjoy Him & His creation. We have the accounts of the destinies of the rich man & Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31), the thief on the Cross (Luke 23:39-43) & Stephen's cry at his execution (Acts 7:55-60). All seem to suggest that our spirits remain alive, active & accountable whether in life in the body or cessation of earthly existence.

    They sinned. They made their father drunk and lay with him without consent. The offspring do not fair well as a result. That is the lesson it was a sin.
  • Maria MacKenzie - in Reply on 1 John 1
    Us is God and other Spiritual beings is the heavenly host.
  • Maria MacKenzie - in Reply on Genesis 3
    It means you will die at some point not necessarily immediately. Up until that point there was eternal life no death for Adam and Eve. That is my take. Hope it helps.
  • BRENDA HOLLAND on Ecclesiasticus 10
    My King James bible only has Ecclesiastes so there must be a King James version with extended versions and scriptures. I was following a teaching on a "Wise Judge will instruct his peoples" so i went to Ecclesiastes come to find out it's Ecclesiasticus 10:1 not Ecclesiastes 10:1 it was some what very difference. Tell me how can i receive this bible under the name of the King James Bible.

    Thank You
  • Joseph DeFile on Luke 17
    In Luke 17;20 Jesus is speaking about the son of man in his day at the end times as if this son of man is different from Jesus or am I not reading this correctly?also I have noticed that in the beginning of the Bible God created everything all the people all the animals all the plants and then lord god is with Adam and Eve and their roll in the world as chosen for lord god to show a separate group of people their own personal history and if these people wanted to take part in having a companion from the other group that would be acceptable but I'm not at all sure about how I read into these things thank you for your help.

  • Using Bible Commentaries for Study - in Reply on Job 14:2
    Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

    14:1-6 Job enlarges upon the condition of man, addressing himself also to God. Every man of Adam's fallen race is short-lived. All his show of beauty, happiness, and splendour falls before the stroke of sickness or death, as the flower before the scythe; or passes away like the shadow. How is it possible for a man's conduct to be sinless, when his heart is by nature unclean? Here is a clear proof that Job understood and believed the doctrine of original sin. He seems to have intended it as a plea, why the Lord should not deal with him according to his own works, but according to His mercy and grace. It is determined, in the counsel and decree of God, how long we shall live. Our times are in his hands, the powers of nature act under him; in him we live and move. And it is very useful to reflect seriously on the shortness and uncertainty of human life, and the fading nature of all earthly enjoyments. But it is still more important to look at the cause, and remedy of these evils. Until we are born of the Spirit, no spiritually good thing dwells in us, or can proceed from us. Even the little good in the regenerate is defiled with sin. We should therefore humble ourselves before God, and cast ourselves wholly on the mercy of God, through our Divine Surety. We should daily seek the renewing of the Holy Ghost, and look to heaven as the only place of perfect holiness and happiness.

    Mishael: you can Google scriptures. Just type your scripture and type after it. Commentary.

    That way you can read more than one.

    1 Corinthians 6:5

    I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man amongst you? no not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

    Psalms 14:3

    They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no not one.

  • PART 1 Ministry Opposition - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 13
    To Christine Knight from Mishael: 1 Cor. 13

    > I want to encourage you and perhaps change your confession. I was thrilled when the Holy Spirit cleared my misconceptions about my memory. At that time my mother was presenting with dementia. That day I was asking: "scientists say that we only use 10 percent of our brains." Why can't we have more memory (like a computer)?

    I got quiet and waited a long time. Finally, the Holy Spirit said: "you have the Mind of Christ." I scrambled for the Bible to look that up.

    1 Corinthians 2

    14 But the NATURAL man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. (We must be born again)

    15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

    16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But WE HAVE the MIND OF CHRIST.

    > Jesus teaches us the meaning of scripture through the Holy Spirit. That is part of his ministry to us. Always ask Him to teach you.

    IF we are born again, and have RECEIVED the Holy Spirits's Baptism?

    John 14:16

    And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

    John 14:26

    But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

    John 15:26

    But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

    John 16

    8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

    9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

    10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

    11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world (Satan), is judged.

  • Listening To The Wrong Voices on Psalms 2
    Today you may want to take a look at the ALCJ dot com website and consider the petitions that need signatures; regarding various issues; some of them concerning CHURCH FREEDOMS.

    If we neglect to use our support of Issues concerning Church and our freedoms under constitutional law, to worship and assemble: there will be no one to blame except ourselves.

    The Church can't Arise and lift up the Standard against the enemies of our soul, if we don't draw together as the Body of Christ, stand on our most holy Faith against the evil encroaching upon this nation...and say NO with our signature.

    Evil prevails when good people do nothing.

    Consider the WOES that God warns us of in:

    (Isaiah 3:11-12, Isaiah 5:8,11, Isaiah 20-23, Isaiah 6:5-10, Isaiah 10:1

    The simplicity of the Woes is this= if we don't obey Gods known will in our lives, we'll suffer the woes. It takes CORPORATE PRAYER of Christians, to please God and turn back to Him, quickly. Agree with Him!

    Stop listening to the voices of unchurched FOOLS. (Nat'l TV)

    If we listen to fools, ascribe to what they put forth..... and we NEGLECT to check the Bible to see what GOD says about it ???

    Our nation is due for some Reaping of the things we sowed for. Stop turning deaf ears and blind eyes to Gods Word.

    There is no thing such as basic "Fire Insurance" as a, "Get Out Of Hell" free card." It cost Jesus His life to pay for our sins. Turn back to Him, and He will turn back to hearing your petitions; prayers.

    Satan can play the politics game too. If you can't discern that "voice", you build your house on quicksand. That's why the 'WOEs' are in the Bible. Turn back to God and he will welcome your return. If you feel "less than blessed", you need to assess your life and figure out WHEN you strayed off course.

    Spiritual warfare against your MIND happens when it's not full of Bible and faith in what God says; and in what Jesus did for us. Kick satans lying demons out of your head !!

  • Gm on Genesis 1:31
    Genesis 1:31

    "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."

    King James Bible

    Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof

    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    John 6:70

    "Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?"

    2 Timothy 4:3

    "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;"

    Matthew 13:37

    He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

    The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 11
    Steven, that's a very worthy desire you have towards God's Word. One can do no better than to store God's Word in one's heart. By it your spirit will be refreshed as you meditate on it wherever you find yourself, & by it God's Spirit can minister His Word when sin prods or difficulties arise. You may not always recall the Bible by chapter & verse, especially as age starts to diminish the memory, but hiding the Word in your heart will bring to mind the needed verse. Psalms 119:11.

    The only way I know to memorize Scriptures is to select one & repeat it over again until you absorb it. Then continue to recall it over the succeeding days. Which Scriptures to memorize? Start with those that are most meaningful to you as you read the Bible. I think most of us started off with John 3:16, but in time you can begin to memorize more of that chapter. Then each day pick a new verse or verses to memorize.

    To understand Scripture, you are wholly cast upon God's Spirit to reveal not only the meaning of the verse, but to apply it to your understanding & life. Of course, there will always be Bible portions that are hard to understand. Firstly, one must know the setting, the people, the era, God's Covenant & His requirements, even the history of the land to properly understand why verses are written the way they are. There are Bible encyclopedias, on Jewish history, even the Web that can provide you valuable information. You will learn over time which web sites consistently provide proper truthful information. Other helps are, Dictionaries, Concordances, Commentaries, Lexicons, Interlinear Bibles, Atlases/maps, & a good Study Bible is very useful as they often have some of the above helps in a condensed format. For sake of space, I can't give more descriptions of the above Bible Tools. I use a Ryrie Study Bible, but there are many great ones available. Visiting a Christian bookshop & discussing your needs with the staff there will certainly bring a good result. Every blessing.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 3
    I believe the portion of Scripture you're looking at in 1 Corinthians 3:10-17 has to do with Rewards that a believer receives when we stand before God in that final day. In other words, we as Christians, are already established on the firm Foundation which is Christ Jesus, so the question about mercy after this fact doesn't come into the picture.

    Paul speaks about what we build upon this foundation. Many Christians will come before God empty-handed, as they have not done what God required of them. It doesn't mean evangelizing in foreign lands or holding large evangelistic crusades, or suffering at the hands of wicked men. It can be how faithful you have been, did you take the opportunities God gave you to witness for Him, or to serve His Church with gladness, to be a listening ear or praying heart to someone in need. Was your Christian life worthy of bearing Christ's Name? Some believers' works will abide under scrutiny (fire), but sadly, many will suffer loss of reward because of their disobedience & carnal living, BUT (v15) they will still be saved "yet so as by fire" (a modern rendering: 'by the skin of their teeth'). But this is not a good place to be in.

    The Christian is the present day visible Temple of God on Earth - God expects we look after His Temple, refrain from sin, & present it holy before the world. If the Christian continues to defile (continuing in wilful sin) God's Temple, God will destroy him (i.e. the body will be removed - by death) - see also 1 Corinthians 5:5. This God has to do to bring to a halt such misbehaviour, just so that the believers' spirit might be saved. God has never put up with sin, & more so when we look at Israel's disobedience through the ages & the Christian's disregard to holy living. God gives us time & opportunity for us to come to our senses, to repent & turn away, but many who refuse, suffer under His Hand, as when some disregarded the Lord's Table, and so "many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (die)."

  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 John 2
    If you'll back arrow out to where you clicked the link to come in here:

    There's a Link, that says Become A BELIEVER. It's the most complete guide on how to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.

    It's all scriptural. Just say a little Prayer and ask, "Holy Spirit please help me to understand, memorize what you say, so I can share this with someone else. Amen.
