    No death can take control over us if we submit ourselves to the Lord.

    In short it means literally what happened in chapter 2 8 10 19 book of Acts

    The crown of God 's church who should be leading the people into an understanding of God 's law put restrictive doctrine over themselves where the cannot lie straight and cover themselves so overcome with their wine that they actually vomit a load of lies onto the people that stinks right up to Heaven......Hear a little, there a little, Line upon Line of falsehood and unrest will eventually stumble all who try to gain entry into God 's kingdom to finally fall backward and curse the LORD for his trouble.
  • Isaac andrew for verse 10
    "life " is the path of salvation.. "i will "never "leave you "nor " lead astray..the way we learn "understand " in life is either by listening reading.or by a parable relateing like the seed sower to our message,or by trial error,trial by fire,,if we dont learn the truth by physical expierence then its because we dont want to except the truth.. "we live by not bread alone but every word from our mouth "what we speak obviously comes from our heart,if we speak as yeh nay,,if we add to much it makes a lie.puting to many adjectives,etc,etc..our words defile us...our minds are literally computers storeing information from daily occurences that we rewind and intertwine in our daily lives,sometimes unknowingly to us,,a little here a little there is what some will learn by reading this.some might not be ready for full comprehension at the time.others might be ready know..a little here and a little there....salvation is lifelong.. "he that continues to the end shall be saved ".. "desire with all your heart,might,body soul ", "Believe ",,,you are enough for me Jesus.

    Verse 22... a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth. A consumption is a lung disease and when nuclear fallout covers the earth by traveling on the jetstream, everyone will breathe it causing their lungs to disease. Consumption can also represent biodegradation which also will happen when the earth is covered with nuclear fallout.
  • God, in His infinite wisdom, knows that we mere mortals cannot take all his instruction at once! He is saying here, I believe, that we need to build upon His Word one little idea action at a time, until such time as we are together with Him!
