Discussion for Hebrews 9

    There are plenty of people who die twice, Lazarus, the widow's son, the young maiden. All three were stone cold dead and were resurrected to live out their lives and die a second time. The Lord Jesus Christ died ONCE NEVER TO DIE AGAIN!. There is a difference. All those at the final judgement died physically and spiritually once and will die a second time never to see God again, EVER!

    1 TIMOTHY 2:5 FOR THERE IS ONE GOD AND --- ONE MEDIATOR --- BETWEEN GOD AND MEN THE MAN JESUS CHRIST HEBREWS 9:15 AND FOR THIS CAUSE HE IS THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT BY MEANS OF DEATH FOR THE REDEMPTION OF THE TRANSGRESSIONS THAT WERE UNDER THE FIRST TEASTAMENT THEY WHICH ARE CALLED MIGHT RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF ETERNAL INHERITANCE

    HEBREWS 9:16 FOR WHERE A TESTAMENT IS THERE MUST ALSO OF NECESSITY BE THE DEATH OF THE TEASTATOR 9:17 FOR A TESTAMENT IS OF FORCE AFTER MEN ARE DEAD OTHERWISE IT IS OF NO STRENGTH AT ALL

    And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
