  1. I'll add in James 5:19-20. Keep in mind James was talking to the body when he made this statement. Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.
  2. Hebrews 13:2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. WHo are we to say when a stranger gives us advice it is not an angel? Let His Spirit in you guide you.
  3. Poor choice of words "doubtful". Very improbable I would agree, but doubtful? You can be assured that if I had any doubt for the reality of what happened to me, I would not be making it public. It happened. If you choose to not believe me, there is nothing I can do about that. Your doubt does not change the fact that it did.
  4. Once, and only once, have I heard the voice of God, literally. He said "I Am Alive" just as clear as any other voice, so I wouldn't ever say God does not speak to us in an audible voice. Most of my direction comes through the Holy Spirit, which will not go against scripture.
  5. I understand very well. I also understand that God will not go back on His words to fit mans theology. Genesis 3:0 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return. Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. 1 Corinthians 15:50-54 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
  6. That didn't answer my question. Can you show from the below scripture that they will be flesh and blood? Revelation 20:1-15 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. The Saints Reign with Christ 1,000 Years 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. Satanic Rebellion Crushed 7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. The Great White Throne Judgment 11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
  7. So I don't misunderstand you, are you saying you believe that flesh and bone stand before God at the Great White Throne Judgment?
  8. Not any longer, but George or Steve_S can delete it for you.
  9. This has been discussed not too long ago. I doubt you will get many replies.
  10. Yup, sure do. I don't own a cell phone so I either depend on maps, which I have many, or the GPS which came with the car ... but I don't like. Just too old school to change now.
  11. Me also ... which is why you will rarely see me post anymore.
  12. I don't see any bickering on my part, just asking a serious question and giving my view point. Saying that, you are correct that scripture is silent on this matter, yet it does lean both ways. If we only spoke of what is derived from solid viewpoints found in scripture, we would have little to talk about, wouldn't we?
  13. The first death is when one physically dies. The second death is when one is cast away from God into the lake of fire. Those who are included in the second death are those who are not found in the Book of Life, those who rejected salvation through Christ. I noticed you did not include that part of the passage, so let's look at it together. Revelation 20:11-15 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. This has nothing to do with how long one is in the lake of fire or the second death. How did you come up with it not being eternal? Let's look at verse 10 now. Revelation 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Unless these are two different places, which I do not believe they are, notice it says that" they will be tormented day and night forever and ever."
  14. John 3:16-17 would agree with you, as do I. Since God sent Jesus to die for the whole world, that statement alone does not exclude anyone. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
  15. I'm not following ... why would you say He died for some and not all? I know this is your question, but where did it come from?
