So answer my question dear friend of mine
Why can we not just let God be?
He comes to you and he comes to me
Wanting us to just let him be.
Okay...I will stop...I still don't know
Why we can not just...
Let God be...
What he means to you...
And what he means to me.
Good morning...best I go take that walk...I think!
Hello Lass:)

I do hope you enjoyed your walk, and are relaxed for the evening <smiles> ...

Just "let G-d be", well..He always "is"...don't believe anyone could prevent Him from being who He is...so He'll "just be..."

Eve is back! Knew she would be;)

You have a great night ,Annie...

Christian concordances. The word is Hebrew and means god(s).
Recall that the OT is a Jewish Hebrew text. The concordances are Chrisitan apologetics, not Jewish Hebrew scholars.
Now, the Jewish 'apologetics' have a diffeerent "out" for that verse.
Funny that no one wants to take their "God's word" at face value. LOL
Good early mornin' G... I just looked in the Tanahkh which the jews used... looked at 3 of them.(for those who don't know, the Tanakh is that which Christians would call the Old Testament)

In the tehillim (psalms), the jews have translated that part in psalm 82:6 as "godlike"... not gods. That would make sense because we're made in the image of God. Please consider deferring "ye are gods" to the jewish understanding "Ye are godlike beings".

So no, we're not gods... we're men and women who are made in the image of God. And in my view and understanding, Jesus is God (The Son) who came to be a man in order to make the atonement for mankind.

<smile> If you read the OT without bias, you will see that all the Psalms are simply human songs and poems (allegedly written by David) and NOT the "words of God"... just like the Jews have been saaying for 3000 years.
The Psalms are songs indeed. In my beliefs I believe they were written by David and others under the inspiration of The Spirit of God... in which quite a number of prophecies contained in those Psalms have been fulfilled through Jesus, The long-awaited Messiah which most of the Jews missed. That's what I believe anyways.

According to Genesis, Clay + God's Spirit = Nephesh.
Nepesh is simply the Hebrew for "living creature". Nephesh is translated as soul in the Christian Bible when refering to man but left at living creaature for animals.
There is no difference between humans and animals until Adam and Eve eat from the tree and become ,according to Genesis, just like gods except they will die (should have eaten from the other tree first).
1. Actually, in pointing out Genesis 2:7... The Body was made from dry earth (Hebrew word is `aphar)

2. The spirit of man was made from the breath of God (Hebrew word is n&#277;shamah)

3. And man became a living soul and that Hebrew word is Nephesh as you stated earlier.

1. Based on a Christian account.
2. Even Christains don't agree on what "reborn" means, seen the evidence on this thread.

please/quote original OT OG koine greek(staurous not cross) words of apostle Paul,instead misleaded english translations.
there is not important what doctrines
but JW doctrines are 10000 miles closser to the biblical truth,as your worldly backade up doctrines posted web pages9and climing dig up deeper)
only JW prporly and truthfuly point from Bible what is wrong,or what isn't
people like you always point from their own quesess, own church deceiving doctrines and own bitterness
cross alone is toll of murder,like machine gun killing second human being
in those two exist not power of God,only POWER OF DEATH
In simple words you don't understand even this quote 1 Cor 1;18
this and many more debates from you allow mature christian to put under question of doubt if you are UNDER GRACE OF GOD
insulting characters of people based on posted posts,doesn't make you at all really humble true normal christian
dig down please only Bible personaly,and beg God for His direct help of Gods Holy Spirit,
and stop using others foods from the tables full of viomits,and filth
have nice evening Q.
First of all Prince, let me point out that in researching this word... I came across the Jehovah's Witness' version of the Bible called the NWT or New World Translation. And they make quite a stink over "cross" which reminded me of you and how you were having a hissy fit because I used the word "cross"... Anyways, JWs had replaced the word "cross" with "tortuous stake" or something to that effect. That word stauros in the greek from the Strong's Concordance says this: "upright stake, hence a cross"

In looking into it further I read that there were various ways that the Romans crucified a person... whether it was a single upright stake, a stake with a cross-beam, etc. and yet it still fell under stauros.

It appears that Jesus, The Son of God, was crucified by cross-beam. Here's a scripture and Thomas is talking to the other disciples:

Thomas: "Unless I see the nail marks in His hands and put my finger where THE NAILS were, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe it."

Now looking at it in the Greek/English interlinear it appears that those more than one nail was used for Jesus' hands.

http://interlinearbible.org/john/20-25.htm

Had Jesus been crucified on a upright stake only... only one nail would need to be used for both hands... as both his hands would be upright and have one on top of the other with one nail going through them. But since Thomas said nails (referring to the wounds in Jesus' hands)... it is very likely Jesus was crucified with His Hands outstretched on a cross-beam with a nail in each one.

Now, this is my only response on this matter... I pretty much was going to let it slide because I don't really see the big deal. But anyways, I learned a little something about it.

Have a good one.... tell Shrink I said Hey.

I hear the bells...

And I can't take the commercialism any longer...
Nor the false peace the world offers...
Nor the deceit offered to those who hope...
It is a world wide epedademic...
and the suffering out here in the fileds called mankind, are heart-breaking!!!

There is SO much need... out here... beyond where the news doesn't reach, where votes aren't counted, where the sprit of Christmas is not even felt, where hope... is another breath to last another day.

Just as a single blade of grass can find it's way through the darkness into the Light of God's Creative Force, we pray the selfishiness of a commercial Christmas will pass once and for all... into the mists of time. And the real Hope which mankind cannot offer, is seen in His saving Grace for ever more for Planet Earth.
Amen.

REVELATION

Rev 1:7 (Part 6)

"Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, EVEN THOSE WHO PIERCED HIM, and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen."

1. Even those who pierced Him - This verse is talking about the 2nd Coming of The Messiah. The 2nd coming will be Judgement Day and that judgement will be pretty comprehensive... so much so that even those who had pierced Jesus on the cross in the crucifixition over 2000 years ago will see Jesus.

a. What? Aren't those that crucified Jesus long dead? Yes, they are... and no they aren't from our own understanding of things. Let me try and explain but first let me say that those who had any involvement with Jesus' death are included in this. Like those Pharisees, the rest of the Sanhedrin, King Herod... the crowd, the ones who stirred up the crowd... those who rejected Him and chose Barabbas instead. They all had a part that led up to Jesus' crucifixion.

(1) Now some of these who took part in Jesus' death, I believe some will be saved. Looked at the Roman Centurion who after seeing all that had happened (the earthquake, temple renting... Jesus crying out with a loud voice before all that happened, the darkness in the middle of the day)... but the Centurion said, "Surely this was the Son of God!" It doesn't take much for one to be saved. It simply takes genuine Faith in God's Son.

(2) Now some of those who took part in Jesus' death, they will be condemned. Jesus had told some of the Pharisees earlier that they would die "in their sins" unless they believed (John 8:24). Why? Because not only did they "at least" know that He was some kind of prophet sent from God because of the things He did... but they were hellbent on killing Him. Why did they want to kill Jesus? In their estimation of things, they didn't want to lose their place in society. They had it good... people basically praising them all the time...kickbacks from the Roman government if they kept everything peaceful... yadda yadda. And to them, jesus was messing it all up.

a. "Now the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some sly way to arrest Jesus and kill Him." Mark 14:1

b. "So the Pharisees said to one another, "See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!" John 12:19

2. So Quin, how in the world are they going to see Jesus when they are already dead? See the next part... I'll send later, Lordwilling.
