    Sorry, that’s Revelation 6:12, not 6:20

  • April 15, 2014 at 3:11pm

    _____________
    We can read these prophecies for ourselves at:
    Joel 2:30-32, Acts 2:14-21,
    Revelation 6:20, and Matthew 24:29-31

    Let the Bible speak. I will keep quiet.

    You are not and you cannot prevent them from preaching the “good news of the kingdom”.
    You condemn them every chance you get because YOU think they are a cult.

    And yet you condemn those who are doing just that. – Matthew 24:14

    If a person wants to begin reading the Bible, I would suggest starting with the Book of John.

    Read it slowly and carefully.

    Is the soul immortal?

    No, the soul can die. Dozens of Bible verses refer to the soul as being mortal. Here are some examples:

    “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.”—Ezekiel 18:4, 20, King James Version.

    In ancient Israel, the punishment for the most serious offenses was that the “soul shall be cut off.” (Exodus 12:15, 19; Leviticus 7:20, 21, 27; 19:8, King James Version) The person would “be put to death.”—Exodus 31:14, King James Version.

    After a person dies, the literal term “dead soul” is used for the corpse in some Bible verses. (Leviticus 21:11, footnote; Numbers 6:6, footnote) Although many Bible translations use the terms “dead body” or “dead person” in those verses, the original Hebrew uses the word ne′phesh, or “soul.”

    Death is not necessarily the end of everything.

    The Bible often compares death to sleep. (Psalm 13:3; John 11:11-14; Acts 7:60) A person who is fast asleep is unaware of what is happening around him. Likewise, the dead are not conscious of anything. Yet, the Bible teaches that God can awaken the dead as if from sleep and give them life again. (Job 14:13-15) For those whom God resurrects, death is not the end of everything.

    Our souls die.
    The Bible says: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5; Psalm 146:4) Therefore, when we die, we cease to exist. The dead can’t think, act, or feel anything.

    ““We don’t fight out of meanness,” Burress, of Trinity Church in Rochester, N.Y., said. “We have no hate or bitterness in our heart.””

    Well, isn’t that nice.

    Jim,
    You are confused. You are trying to convict JW’s by making inaccurate statements about what YOU think we teach. JW’s do not hold to the ‘rapture’ as it is taught by Christendom. You are approaching a subject that requires serious study to understand, and this is not the place to accomplish that with any kind of effectiveness.

    Leftism is a religion?

    Interesting, there are so many religions, I suppose Leftism could be added to the confusion without too much trouble.

    I was expecting a different conclusion though, from Dennis Prager.

    Death is an enemy that cannot be avoided at this time. We lose the ones we love and the tears flow.
    But we have the assurance of a resurrection of our loved ones. We can welcome them back, to laugh again, with them at our side.

    Just because you disagree with someones religion does not give you license to be a vile hateful person, attacking when they suffer from the death of his father. Would Jesus do what you just did?

  • March 30, 2014 at 9:38am

    I lost my father in 2005, I miss him.
    Glenn, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Jesus said in John 5:25-30
    “Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live. 26 For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted also to the Son to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to do judging, because he is the Son of man. 28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment. 30 I cannot do a single thing of my own initiative. Just as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous because I seek, not my own will, but the will of him who sent me.

    I look forward to the Kingdom hope of the resurrection of our loved ones through the authority of our Lord, Jesus.

    The Pope “bowed down in front of the crowd at St. Peter’s Basilica and confessed his sins to an ordinary priest”.

    Why?
    And why did he do it in front of the crowd and camera’s?

    Well then, let me continue, if I may.
    Speaking about man’s death, Ecclesiastes 12:7 states: “The dust [of his body] returns to the earth just as it happened to be and the spirit itself returns to the true God who gave it.” When the spirit, or life-force, leaves the body, the body dies and returns to where it came from—the earth. Comparably, the life-force returns to where it came from—God. (Job 34:14, 15; Psalm 36:9) This does not mean that the life-force actually travels to heaven. Rather, it means that for someone who dies, any hope of future life rests with Jehovah God. His life is in God’s hands, so to speak.
    Only by God’s power can the spirit, or life-force, be given back so that a person may live again. – John 5:28-29

    To me, this is a most marvelous gift from God – the future resurrection of my dear loved ones who have died. I pray for God’s Kingdom to come. – Matthew 6:9-10

    Thank you for your courtesy toward me.

    DeavonReye,
    The word “spirit” is not the same as the meaning of “soul”.

    Bible writers used the Hebrew word ru′ach or the Greek word pneu′ma when writing about the “spirit.” The Scriptures themselves indicate the meaning of those words. For instance, Psalm 104:29 states: “If you [Jehovah] take away their spirit [ru′ach], they expire, and back to their dust they go.” And James 2:26 notes that “the body without spirit [pneu′ma] is dead.”
    In these verses, then, “spirit” refers to that which gives life to a body. Without spirit, the body is dead. Therefore, in the Bible the word ru′ach is translated not only as “spirit” but also as “force,” or life-force. For example, concerning the Flood in Noah’s day, God said: “I am bringing the deluge of waters upon the earth to bring to ruin all flesh in which the force [ru′ach] of life is active from under the heavens.” (Genesis 6:17; 7:15, 22) “Spirit” thus refers to an invisible force (the spark of life) that animates all living creatures.

    DeavonReye,
    The word “soul” in the Bible is a translation of the Hebrew word ne′phesh and the Greek word psy·khe′. The Hebrew word literally means “a creature that breathes,” and the Greek word means “a living being.” * The soul, then, is the entire creature, not something inside that survives the death of the body. Consider how the Bible shows that the human soul is the whole person:
    Adam, a living soul, at the time of his creation

    Adam was not given a soul—he “became a living soul”

    When Jehovah God created the first man, Adam, the Bible says that “man became a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7, King James Version) Adam was not given a soul—he became a living soul, or person.

    The Bible says that the soul can work, crave food, eat, obey laws, and touch a dead body. (Leviticus 5:2; 7:20; 23:30; Deuteronomy 12:20; Romans 13:1) Those activities involve the entire person.

    Interesting isn’t it?
