    @THERAP……………”Jesus did away with the priesthood “?

    The priesthood was a foreshadow of the things to come at the time of his (Jesus’)kingdom rule in heaven. In the manner of Melchizedek both King and priest of the Most High God,”Jehovah” Genesis 14:18-22

    1Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation……..
    Revelation 20:6 …………..but they will be priest of God and of the Christ, and will rule as kings with him for the 1,000 years.
    Revelation 5:10 and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will rule as kings over the earth.

    That was an Illustration or parable which is how Jesus would teach. Like the wheat and the weeds, the mustard grain, the leaven or the traveling merchant and the fine pearl.

    “I would not say that the belief in a cessation of conscious existence is biblical. ”

    Psalms 146:4 His spirit goes out, he returns to the ground; On that day his thoughts perish.

    This is just one many many more examples

    @bullcrap……..No one said the spirit waits in the grave. Tell me, what is the difference between the soul and the spirit? There is a difference.

    There is a difference between going to heaven and a vision as in Daniel and John as another example.

  • [2] February 9, 2015 at 6:56pm

    First John saw a vision and was told to write what he saw. You have the 144,000 who will rule with Christ as kings and priests in heaven and you have the great crowd which no man was able to number. maybe you should read some more.

    Like Glenn says “don’t take my word for it ; do your own homework”
    Psalms 37:11, 29 Matthew 5:5 Revelation 21:4
    Ask yourself : Did God’s original plan for the earth and mankind change since the beginning?

  • February 9, 2015 at 5:06pm

    @Chief……Show me from the scriptures where people go to heaven or hell. Because hell is just another word for the grave.
    Hell comes from the Hebrew word sheol and the Greek word hades, the common grave of mankind. John 5:28,29 is pretty clear. (resurrection)

  • February 9, 2015 at 4:26pm

    When a person dies he ceases to exist. period
    Also, this woman did not die.
    Jesus taught that there would be a resurrection and that someday all those in the memorial tombs (those who are in God’s memory) would hear his voice and come out. John 5:28,29
    Job asked if an able body man dies can he live again? He was speaking about waiting in the grave until the time came for God to remember him. “You will call, and I myself will answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning.” Job 14:13-15
    Jesus resurrected Lazarus who was sleeping in death. John 11:11-14 Was he in heaven? No; he had died. He was not alive and had no conscious existence anywhere. Ecclesiastes 9:5

    cont……..
    “2 tons per square inch,” sufficient to fossilize fauna and flora quickly.—See The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch, by D. Patten, 1966, p. 62.

    What evidence proves that there truly was a global deluge?

    Other possible evidence of a drastic change: Remains of mammoths and rhinoceroses have been found in different parts of the earth. Some of these were found in Siberian cliffs; others were preserved in Siberian and Alaskan ice. (PICTURE, Vol. 1, p. 328) In fact, some were found with food undigested in their stomachs or still unchewed in their teeth, indicating that they died suddenly. It is estimated, from the trade in ivory tusks, that bones of tens of thousands of such mammoths have been found. The fossil remains of many other animals, such as lions, tigers, bears, and elk, have been found in common strata, which may indicate that all of these were destroyed simultaneously. Some have pointed to such finds as definite physical proof of a rapid change in climate and sudden destruction caused by a universal flood. Others, however, favor explanations for the death of these animals that do not involve an earth-wide catastrophe. Proof that the Flood occurred is not dependent on such fossils and frozen animal remains.

    Deluge……..
    Effect on the Earth. With the Deluge great changes came, for example, the life span of humans dropped very rapidly. Some have suggested that prior to the Flood the waters above the expanse shielded out some of the harmful radiation and that, with the waters gone, cosmic radiation genetically harmful to man increased. However, the Bible is silent on the matter. Incidentally, any change in radiation would have altered the rate of formation of radioactive carbon-14 to such an extent as to invalidate all radiocarbon dates prior to the Flood.

    With the sudden opening of the ‘springs of the watery deep’ and “the floodgates of the heavens,” untold billions of tons of water deluged the earth. (Ge 7:11) This may have caused tremendous changes in earth’s surface. The earth’s crust, which is relatively thin and varied in thickness, is stretched over a rather plastic mass thousands of kilometers in diameter. Hence, under the added weight of the water, there was likely a great shifting in the crust. In time new mountains evidently were thrust upward, old mountains rose to new heights, shallow sea basins were deepened, and new shorelines were established, with the result that now about 70 percent of the surface is covered with water. This shifting in the earth’s crust may account for many geologic phenomena, such as the raising of old coastlines to new heights. It has been estimated by some that water pressures alone were equal to “2 tons per square inch,” sufficient to fo

    There is nothing that survives the death of the body. That is why our only hope is in a resurrection. read (John 5:28,29) (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and (Psalms 146:4)

    @LCDR…..”JERUSALEM IS THE ETERNAL CITY WITH GOD’S NAME ON IT, not Rome.”

    What is God’s NAME ?

  • [-1] January 1, 2015 at 11:34am

    Maybe the Pope should focus more on God’s Kingdom, isn’t that what Jesus said to pray for?
    Stay away from politics and worldly affairs. Jesus also said that his followers would be no part of the world. (John 17:16)

    @ Servant-Of……..Palestine = (name of a Roman province) from Heb. Palesheth “Philistia,land of the Philistines”
    Revived as a political territorial name in 1920.
    Where are the Philistines today?
