"DEATH" in Bible Discussions

  • Chris on Acts 12:4
    This is an often asked question. I then ask:why did God allow bad things to happen to His Son Jesus Christ? And we know that Jesus faced people's anger, hatred, hunger, temptation, misunderstandings, beatings, thorns, spearing and death. If God allowed His only begotten Son to suffer so much, when He did no wrong & without any sin, should we be surprised that we, as good as some might try to be, also suffer? We are all born sinners, even the slightest wrong-doing makes us such. But Jesus did no wrong, even when under severe testing by Satan - yet He suffered. So, the answer is that we all suffer because we are sinners, but now as Christians, we are given His Grace to live above the pain.
  • Moongold - in Reply on Revelation 3
    Second, yes, Mary was told when she was ALIVE & on EARTH that she was blessed because she had been chosen by God to bring His Son in human form into the world. And yes, we recognise she certainly was blessed to receive that trust. However, the Bible gives no support to a belief in a 'risen' Mary, when you study out the doctrine of death totally (which is too long to do here). Worship of any other being, creature, image or thing is clearly condemned in the Bible as idolatry. Finally, in regard to the right or wrong teachings of ANY church, Christ instructed us to rebuke and reprove wrong teaching not according to His Word. I stand with Him: If it's wrong, it's WRONG! 2 Tim. 4:2
  • Moongold - in Reply on Revelation 3
    The fact that you're becoming fixated on an object and it's causing you distress I believe indicates a need to simply give it up. Our Lord is not found in objects - this is really idolatry. And you are right in seeing it that way. You're not catholic, and catholicity is involved in worshipping relics, objects, statues - all to do with death or things not having life! Our God is the one true, living God - not found in statues or objects, but as the evidence of 'things NOT seen'. Hebrews 11:1. We are to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. John 4:24 God bless!
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    We all go through the process of birth, life's journey and death. It's particularly sad when an innocent baby dies but death for all of us is because we are sinners, inheriting sin from our first parents, Adam & Eve. If there was no sin, we would live forever in holiness, peace and in God's presence. But sin has separated us from God; BUT God provided us a Way - the only Way - through His Son Jesus to get our lives right with Him. So when God looks at an innocent baby or a Christian, He sees our death as merely a transition from this life to the next. Of dead Lazarus His friend, Jesus said that he was only sleeping (Jn11:11). And God sees this of us too. But for the unbeliever, God grieves.
  • Vanessa - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Passover was the night before Moses led God's people out of egypt, He instructed them to place lambs blood on the top and sides of their doorway, so the angel of death would pass by, Jesus was God's sacrifice for all of the world, that whosoever believe in Him, turn from our evil ways, repent of
    our sins, except Him as our Lord we shall live and not die. Praise the Lord Amen
  • The Lord's Supper was instituted so that as a Church, we could come together to remember him. If we consider the Lord and the apostles in the upper room and also the new fledgling Church, the remembrance of His death was always in the company of others, as they partook of the common bread and cup. I don't believe a leader in the Church has to necessarily be the convener and officiator at the Lord's Table; any brother could officiate. The point was that believers who got together to worship the Lord, also took time during their fellowship meal to remember Jesus' sacrifice. This could be done at home, but as an individual? This would appear pointless & suggest to receive a special blessing.
  • Mary - in Reply on Hosea 6
    The word of God says we are His temple. His death did away with the need for an earthly temple.
  • Shanka on Psalms 91:7
    In the Bible days when there was a plague in the lane they placed blood over the door and death could not enter. By Easter Sunday, the media says the U.S. will be reaching its peak in death rates. But Passover is coming and we have placed a red ribbon to represent the our faith in the blood of Jesus over the door!
  • Frances J Maloney on Psalms 102:7
    I came to realize, as a result of 'trifling with' the Sabbath, yesterday, that, although we, especially women and girls, are discouraged from making vows, our Jacob-fashion (city was called Luz at the first.

    20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

    21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God)
    promise to God Most Merciful, might be, that if He lifts the death sentence (I sense) that is presently upon us, WE WILL, I WILL, DILIGENTLY KEEP THE SABBATH. This means, that, we could credit ourselves, if only as rooster re daily rising of sun.
  • Steven - in Reply on Matthew 25
    When it says the wicked shall be "destroyed", (i.e. ruined) it refers to the fact that every bit of our EARTHLY LIFE will be "destroyed" i.e. wiped out, forgotten, ruined, thrown OUT. Keeping that in mind, they will be thrown out into outer darkness (verse 30 above) and everlasting fire (verse 41) Remember, this is King James era (AD. 1611) English. Death does not mean extinction of existence.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Ezekiel 42
    Jesus went to the Cross to graft Jew and Gentile BELIEVERS together. He's gonna deal with bonehead Jews who resist the Holy Spirit. It's prophesy. We don't get to be the scripture cops.
    Your knowledge is so valuable to baby Christians and people who don't know how to get saved. They're in this room seeking help; direction. They could be on a death bed with corona virus? They need to know they can still be saved. You explain to me what is the FRUIT of the Holy Spirit?
    How do we edify others?
    Ephesians 4:29, Ephesians 5:9
    The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus.
    He has always been my Teacher, my Comforter, a Light when I get lost, strength when I feel weak. The lifter of my head; so much more. Selah
  • Bob Hilt on Revelation 1
    2 Corinthians Chapter 2: 15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
    16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
    17 For we are not as many, which CORRUPT corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
    Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
    Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
  • Mickey on Revelation 1
    We are living in a time of heresies and false prophets; the spirit of Anti-Christ. Whatever you are listening to or watching is either preaching life to you or death; spiritual death.
    If you are attending Church, whatever is preached should contain a lot of scripture. You should write those down. Look them up in your Bible. If they aren't giving you substance and spiritual food that fills you up.. then find a church that's serving the real deal!! There is going to be a GREAT FALLING AWAY. There is going to be a FAMINE for hearing the Word of God. Beware unless you are led away to spiritual slaughter. Turn off the tv and read whole chapters at a time.
  • Peter Engelbrecht on 2 Thessalonians 2:7
    Can someone answer me this - And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years
  • Mick - in Reply on John 6
    Sorry, Alex, but that is rank heresy. Jesus' words did not make them gods, that's similar to Mormonism or the Faith heresy's "little gods" theory and there is not one ounce of scriptural support for this. Not one. Jesus is the second person of the Trinity, the Son, the incarnation who through his life of perfect obedience obtained the merit we couldn't, and through his death and suffering took the punishment we deserve. Jesus obtained our SALVATION, not DEIFICATION. Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16-18, Romans 3. Grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
  • David on Revelation 1
    Are we in the end times..My gut feeling is when this pandemic has lowered in sickness and death. A world war will begin shorty afterwards after governments are unable to bring back their economy. China will be the main factor. This Covid disease that China knew about and let it spread will bring bad things. But, first. All medical from China will come back to U.S. Pharmaceuticals have to come back., There is going to be a time of rebuilding and good. Not too long later. All holy hell breaks out. Money systems already damaged years sgo with virus. The false prophet is seen.
  • Andrew Anthony on Revelation 21:8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. I believe we all lie and some of us fall under the other things listed. So, because we all lie, doesn't that mean we are all going to experience the first or second death?
  • Adam - in Reply on Malachi 4
    Hello, it sounds like you feel frustrated about how you perceive God. Why do you assume God doesn't care, though? Did God not give mankind freewill and the right to do good and evil from the beginning of time? And did Adam and Eve not deliberately choose to sin and have the curse be on the earth (thorns, childbearing pains, struggle, etc)? Is life not extremely short and a test? Are we not all going to die soon regardless? So, does the timing of that death really determine whether one thinks God is 'good' or not? Those who are angry at God for disease, are they equally grateful to God for their life, family, health? Or just 1-sided entitlements? Why is God allowing things to happen "bad"?
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Hi Mickey, yes, context does matter. It sounds like you're referring to 2 Corinthians 5:8 in which Paul says he would 'willing rather' or would rather... be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. He didn't say that everyone upon death is instantly with the Lord and skips judgment or that the dead don't rise to meet Jesus in the clouds. Instead he said would 'rather' be with the Lord. Other verses that say that we will each first face a day of Judgment. 1 Corinthians 4:5 says Jesus will come, then everyone will be judged upon the judgment seat of Christ 2 Corinthians 5:10, and dead will rise to meet the Lord 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
  • Why does God not care on Malachi 4
    Why does God not care about the victims of Satan's children (the tares spoken of by His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ), enough to hear the prayers of said victims? For all of my life, God has allowed Satan's seed to do harm to me, and to others, and God continues to give them more of His power, permission, and will to do even worse to even more. They play games that entail the death, torment, misery, and slandering of decent, innocent human beings, often to cover up their own perversions, often out of perversion. Why has God allowed Satan's to destroy His word via the heads of His temples, and via the corruption of His word? Why does God allow witches, magicians, sorcerers, wizards, and other
  • Annysia on 2 Chronicles 2
    In this chapter, we see how commendable Solomon's perception towards God used to be before his death. He made a temple not hoping to contain God, but as a place to cherish Him and maybe receive blessings from Him as well. He also decides not to be prideful and ask for help from neighboring nations. People nowadays can be very prideful, and not ask for help when they are trying to reach a goal. Where does this fear come from? We should be a community, and aim to improve each other just as Hiram and Solomon did.
  • Arpan on Ezekiel 13
    Did evil spirit prophecy about someone's death in bible?
  • Benji - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    James, actually The thief is the perfect example of someone saved without works (including Baptism), The thief did not die in the Old Testament. The thief had died after Jesus thus the new Testament was in effect (see John19:31-33) Where soldiers had broken both thieves legs to officially finish the job (Because they had not yet died by the crucifixion). But Jesus himself was already dead. The thief died saved and unbaptized. Now some people might come and say it wasn't until the resurrection that the new Testament went into effect. But as Romans 9:15-22 explains "And for this cause, he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of DEATH, for the redemption of the transgressions."
  • Ozzie - in Reply on 1 John 4
    From my understanding reading scripture just believing you are saved Baptism is the first command given to identify with Chris being immersed unto his death and bringing up unto life but lets just say if your in the hospital for example and can t be immersed just believe from your heart and you will be saved had an uncle who was an atheist dying of cancer 6 weeks wen to visit him and started understanding scriptures more and more finally went into a coma we went to visit him while he was yet in a coma came out of the comma briefly accepted Christ went right back in a comma died soon after look in scripture one of the thieves hanging on the cross with Christ read that part of scripture.
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 2
    Hello, that is evil, a sin and has always been. I don't know what you mean by 'touchy subject' as it's black and white. In Mosaic law the punishment for this is death. Deuteronomy 22:25-27.
  • Benji - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    (This continues my last comment)Also you're right. People are damned for not believing the Gospel. But you have a different Gospel. The Gospel does not include Baptism. In fact despite tons of scriptures explaining Salvation is not of works and even in Gods definition of the Gospel 1 Corinth. 15:1-4 not including Baptism. We also have an example of someone saved without Baptism. Remember the thief? "But wait he was saved in the Old covenant"...not quite. Luke was not the last we heard of the thief. Look in John 19:31-33 It shows clearly that the thief was alive AFTER Christ Death and therefore not only was he saved without Baptism but it was also in the new covenant
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 2
    The Lord sent Joseph and Mary with Jesus into Egypt for 2 reasons.
    1. To escape the murderous herod killing all the children.
    2. fulfill prophecy OUT OF EGYPT I HAVE CALLED MY SON.
    Matthew Chapter 2
    13 ...the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

    14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

    15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
  • Fred Scanlan on Mark 3
    What does it mean unforgivable sin against the holy Ghost? What does it mean to bind a strong man? In the next chapter Christ says when your faith is planted in good ground ,He says some will grow 30, some 60, some 100 fold. The revelation of Jesus Christ will have free course and grow,it is Only when we deny him, and allow the strong one to bind our faith, even unto spiritual death ,that their can be no forgiveness of sin. He says to him that has,even more shall be given to Him, also It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
  • Eddie on 2 Kings 4
    What is the significance of the meal or the symbolic application of the meal healing the men from the death in the pot?
  • Fredric Zrofans - in Reply on Revelation 4
    Wesley G, I get what you are saying. It is as Paul stated, "The things I know to do I do not, yet those things i Know not to do those that i do".
    As also stated our flesh and the desires of it are at enmity toward the heavenly Father. Messiah, His Son Yeshua, gave us an entry to the Father. That is where you must start. He (Yeshua) stated "I will bring all men unto Me when I am lifted up" (signifying His death on the cross) But we are not to "come to Jesus" and that's it. Messiah gave His life that we can commune with the Father and when we accept we are (where) sinners, now connected BACK to our heavenly Father we can live for Him. Presenting our bodies a living sacrifice - without spot.
