All I can do is show you the truth...you have ever right to disregard it for your mistaken understanding of the infallible word of God..<quoted text>
Nephesh and Pneuma are the words used for breath or spirit of life.
We now call it oxygen which is in the air that we breathe.
Can you reconcile these verses with what you believe?
Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.
Psalms 146:4 When a man dies,in that very day his thoughts perish.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 The dead know not anything.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 There is no work... nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave.
Jesus Christ taught the Resurrection of the Dead
Matthew 22:23, 29 Jesus rebuked those who said there was no resurrection.
Matthew 22:31 Jesus taught the resurrection of the dead.
Luke 14:14 The saints will be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
John 5:28-29 All who are in their graves will be resurrected at the second coming of Christ.
John 6:39, 40, 44, 54 All believers will rise on the last day.
John 11:24 Martha said to Jesus,I know that he [Lazarus] shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
It sort of overwhelms the idea that the righteous "dead" are in Paradise alive and well.
Pneuma is a Greek word...and the OT was not translated from Greek...
