Trav, No one has offered any interpretation of your questions.
---Warwick on 5/18/10

Clarification? I asked YOU three yes or no questions. You,did not,will not answer even, Yes or no.
You're the expert/preacher, I didn't ask anyone elses interpretations or your interpretation.
I asked YOU,does YOUR GOD say he was Married in Scripture?
Does Scripture say GOD was Divorced?
Does scripture say he will "Re-Marry" the same he divorced?
Perhaps, you do not preach or answer this, because:
It is a small unknown to you,a preacher although in scripture.br>You lose control/authority as a preacher/teacher/flock fleecer, answering questions instead of asking them.

One needs discernment between the physically dead and the spiritually dead.
Matthew 8:22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.
---micha9344 on 5/19/10


Does not the Bible say," the dead knowth nothing."??
---mima on 5/19/10


Sam, The dead who will resurrect are all those who are physically dead. The bodies. If they are believers when they die, their spirit is with God, becuase when they believed by faith in Jesus Christ works, they became alive to Christ and received eternal life with Him. They are not dead spiritually and can never be, the reason they do not go through the second resurrection. Only the lost go through that.
The people now lost are dead spiritually to the things of God. They walk, talk and make decisions but never for God. They are at enmity against God. When they die physically their spirit will not die, but they remain separated from God and so dead. They wait for their judgment at the Great White Throne.
---MarkV. on 5/19/10


Mark V.,
If dead people can think, talk, walk, and make decisions, what for is resurrection?
Why call them dead when they can do what the living do? any difference?

For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.Eccl 9:5

\\Years ago, I visited a Quaker church that had a sign at the door saying "Jesus died to take away our sins, not our brains".\\

Good for the Quakers!

\\ Sadly, many people aren't aware of this fact, and they believe that faith needs the brain to be disconnected (or as some have put it "faith is believing things that you know ain't so").\\

Pity, as this goes directly against the Lord's own words to love God with all our faculties, including our MINDS!
---Cluny on 5/18/10


Trav, you asked questions I do not understand. No one has offered any interpretation of your questions. I asked you for clarification. You refuse. The evasion is yours.

I don't feel caught at all!
---Warwick on 5/18/10


In answer to the question the answer is yes, dead people can think, talk, walk, make decisions. All the lost are spiritually dead, yet walk and talk and live thier lifes in sin. They are separated from God, which is called spiritual death. Romans 5:12. All descendants of Adam are born in this condition, spiritual death. They need rebirth. God to come and bring them to life.

Yes, you're exposed,not answering three simple scripture questions.
You fear they may wash the sand from under your pulpit?
Afraid and should be.
Thank you anyway, got my answer by your evasion and trompement feints.
Psalm 55:21
The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

---Trav on 5/18/10


To date, all the diverse people whom have posted on this site have all done so by the use of thinking in order to post their words. But at death, the spirit goes back to God who gave it, and the scripture reads that there is another life after the temporal life on earth, and that thinking is eternal: which destination is either dwelling up in the heavenly abode of paradise and glory, or else imprisoned down in the firey cavern of barreness and darkness.

No dead people can't think. They are dead. The bible says the dead know nothing. There r some people that don't know they are dead, and they walk the earth not knowing what to do.

Trav that is deceitful of you.

The record shows I do answer questions. You don't.

So as to answer your question/s I have twice, or is it three times, asked you to explain your cryptic question. But you won't and you say I avoid answering!

Mark wrote "when you point Scripture you do not explain each passage in its context.... Take one passage at a time and we can answer you." He is correct. I think you are playing silly games.

You accuse me of 'trompement' i.e. deception! That is ironic.
---Warwick on 5/17/10


Trav, when you point Scripture you do not explain each passage in its context.... Take one passage at a time and we can answer you.
---MarkV. on 5/17/10

Wow, sounds like more fun. Not. Context keep the New Covenant for your context.
Prophets of the Old Covenant give context of New ....but, Prophets are beans to you.
If you can't hear them....how can any man help you....understand.
2 Timothy 2:23
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
2 Peter 3:16
As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
---Trav on 5/17/10


Trav, when you point Scripture you do not explain each passage in its context, you just put many out there and expect everyone to know what the heck you are talking about. We cannot read your mind to know what is behind the word of God you are giving without your point been made. Maybe one or two people but the rest don't know. I am not the only one. I'm not afraid of the Word of God, I am cautious what man does with it so I try to make sure that when I answer I have understood what was said. The bride, the wife, the devorced, the one tribe, two tribes, 12 tribes and all that stuff put together does not make sense, and the one's that got slaughtered it was ok. That is what does not make sense. Take one passage at a time and we can answer you.
---MarkV. on 5/17/10


Trav,...I cannot be sure what your questions mean.
There seems to be a hidden question.
Please don't be cryptic but explain what you mean.
Or maybe you are playing word-games?
---Warwick on 5/16/10

Your record is, answer a question with a question.
Parry until you find an opening that suits,thrust.
Divert/deflect so u still feel/appear like ur in control.
Entangle/provoke control if possible with side issues.

Short,basic scriptural questions you call, cryptic? Word games? Interpreter? You answered all +. Trompement.

Trav, as the record shows I do answer questions. However I cannot be sure what your questions mean. There seems to be a hidden question. Please don't be cryptic but explain what you mean. Maybe I am just too "Puffed up" to understand. Or maybe you are playing word-games?

Maybe someone able to interpret can help?

All the talk about Israel means beans when you do not explain yourself. If I was reading Scripture the Spirit would bring light to God's Word, He doesn't bring light ....
---MarkV. on 5/15/10

Beans, huh. Well, see this is why I point to scripture you avoid. Not knowing what it means you dim truth.
Now, I post for those that haven't seen...but, would/will. While initially addressing you....as you've stated these scriptures are not for you, or you would c. So it is for others.
Matt 10:6/15:24.
Isaiah 45:3
And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Asked of Warwick/ My GOD was married. Yours? My GOD was divorced. Yours? My GOD said he would remarry same people. Yours?
My Lord came, was crucified and was raised for the New Covenant to take effect. Yours?
---Trav on 5/11/10

I asked you to explain-in straight-forward english-what you mean by your marriage/divorce comments, only because I have no idea what you mean.
Maybe English isn't your first language?
---Warwick on 5/15/10

The question was: WAS YOURS? Wow,revisiting the questions,it is simple English Scripture questions you have trouble with. Puffed up preachy types like to ask questions instead of answer.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life!

And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?

For as the body without the spirit is dead, (stop)
so faith without works is dead also.
---TheSeg on 5/15/10


I love the way I see things. I wake up every morning. I look up at the sky, see the sun, clouds, birds, colors just about everything, we all see. So, I am no different!
But, when I think of God, I do see a difference.

Some think because they believe their alive, their alive!
But it seems to me that God, Christ and the Holy Spirit are saying no!
You are not alive, at least not without me. The lord clearly said I am the bread of life in John 6:51.

But more he added John 6:63.
So, what would you have me believe?
We can take something that God has not given?
Everything good must come from God, so what is there here?
---TheSeg on 5/15/10


Trav, in reality I really do not care what you believe. It is not for me to say. It is for me to give you the Truth as I understand it. And you have explained yourself to me many times, and still do not know what you teach, what you are saying, what you stand for, what I do know is, you are glad the Jews got slaughtered by Hitler. That I do know. Other then that, everything else you have said makes no sense at all. All the talk about Israel means beans when you do not explain yourself. If I was reading Scripture the Spirit would bring light to God's Word, He doesn't bring light to your words because they do not come from God but from man, you.
---MarkV. on 5/15/10


The Seg, I believe when we die the spirit leaves, Romans 5:12 explains that, also James 2:26 says, "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so is faith without works is dead also" but you gave a passage that does not mean that the dead hear and bury each other.
"Let the dead bury the dead"
Jesus was answering one of His disciples who ask Him, "Lord, let me first go and bury my father"
He wanted to attend to his fathers furneral but Jesus told him to let the dead bury the dead, which meant, let the (spiritually dead) world bury the dead. He who was alive was to follow Christ. Jesus didn't mean that dead people bury each other. But it was a good answer, just not possible.

I asked you to explain-in straight-forward english-what you mean by your marriage/divorce comments, only because I have no idea what you mean. Please do so and I will, as usual be happy to answer.

Also you wrote "What you are saying is single witness doctrine can't understand a scriptural majority" ???? What in the world does this mean? If you want to be understood then write English, this isn't. Maybe English isn't your first language?
---Warwick on 5/15/10


Mat 8:20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

This sounds like he's saying.
I have no place in you!


Mat 8:21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
Mat 8:22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.

If he saw them as dead, are they not dead?
If the dead know where and how to bury their dead, they must be able to think! Don't you think?

Isn't it better to believe, that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins!
---TheSeg on 5/15/10


Mark, thanks for your comments.
I have to admit I cannot come to grips with what he believes. Sometimes I think I am beginning to understand and then he slips back into nonsense. But I persist, as Jesus tells us to do.

What you are saying is single witness doctrine can't understand a scriptural majority.
Thank you both for your comments. They verify.

micha9344, You have misapplied the scripture about the everliving saints in heaven, and equated them to the dead. Notice how the saints crying out to God are not dead, but alive, because the dead who have no breath in them are not able to cry out, neither do they have a heart beat. And this is literally proven by physically going to any cemetery and placing your ear on the ground over top of any grave, you will hear nothing for the dead cannot speak for there is no life in them anymore but they are dead, their life has left their corpse and has gone back to him who gave it to them. "His breath goes forward, he returns to his earth, in that very day his thoughts perish." Psalm 146:4.

What never dies is the BREATH or SPIRIT OF GOD. It is the spirit of God which goes back to God not that of man.

Ecclesiastes 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts, even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other, yea, they have all one breath, so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 3:20 All go unto one place, all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

Ecclesiastes 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Samuel, the dead body does lay there and rot, but the Spirit of the person awaits the resurrection. It never dies for it is eternal. Spirits/soul don't sleep or die, they can die if God wants them to die.
"But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, "I Am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? God is not the God of the dead but of the living."
That means that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were with God at that moment "I Am" is present tense. He is not the God of the dead but of the living, that means Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all others who are saved.
The Sudducees did not believe in the resurrection.

If you cannot think then you cannot have feelings about anything. To feel or remeber you have to be able to think.

But the dead do not think or fell. They wait in the grave until the Resurrection from the dead at the Second Coming of JESUS.

I know many teach that those who did wrong are suffering punishment in hell right now. But the Bible does not teach that. In fact Hell or Hades is spoken of in Revaltions as being destroyed. This is to end sin for all eternity. GOD will not keep sinners and sin alive.
---Samuel on 5/11/10


The dead cannot think. They are dead, caught in the revolving door of their iniquities. They can, however, feel, and experience, over and over, the torments of their choices. What better reason to run to God for forgiveness, and to Christ, who gives us the Eternal Spirit of sentience. For the saved are never dead...walking evermore in the Light of everlasting LIFE.

Markv--My mom did a lot of things wrong, only she knows why and what she was going through. I have no right to judge her actions. I can see what she did was wrong now, but when she acted on her actions she thought she was right

How true. I can say the same of my parents...now. But growing up we all expect our parents to be perfect. It's a difficult transition to make, seeing them as real humans and forgiving them the errors and missteps we remember. I believe it is an important step in Christian maturity, too. To forgive, accept the past, and move onward with Christ.

Donna66, your right, I question Catherine comments. God commands are to love the Lord with all of our hearts, souls and mind and to love our neighbors. That would mean all others. To bring judgment at her mom is very wrong and not Scriptural. No matter how bad a mom has been or what she did, only God has a right to judge her. No one knows but God the reasons or actions others did and why He permits such a thing to happen during their lives. That is why I see her answers as wrong and not from Scripture. My mom did a lot of things wrong, only she knows why and what she was going through. I have no right to judge her actions. I can see what she did was wrong now, but when she acted on her actions she thought she was right.

Carla I have no problem with God's word only with your narrow-minded misuse of it. It is obvious from Leviticus that what we would call long hair was commanded by God. In the Scripture you gave long is not qualified. However it is qualified by the Leviticus quote I gave. You don't seem to be able to comprehend this.

I am sure you will stick with your cultural prejudice rather than going with what His word says.
---Warwick on 5/10/10


Catherine-- You seem to be preoccupied with what is happening or going to happen to other people. Are you sure all you answers are coming from God?

One thing I have learned about God is that He is much more interested in telling ME what He wants from ME, than he is telling me about other peoples problems.

Peter was curious too.
Jhn 21:20-22 Peter turned and saw following them the disciple whom Jesus loved, who had lain close to his breast at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?"
When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?"
Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!"

Warwick,

I did not write it Paul instructed by God wrote, It is a shame for a man to wear LONG hair! now with your long hair and beard if You like what eva, I suggest you get ova it your self dear... I anint quoting what aint there mate!

And stop procrastinating the word of God.
what does the word say: strain at a gnat and swallow a camel!

Modern society can never understand the word of God cos it don't match their fashion love... so if the word don't suit you you'll have to change it like (NIV) anything they don't like they change or omit it so to any other bible who uses foot notes instead of the original words in English.

Carla, the 'length of a piece of string' is exactly the point! You wrote "If scripture states That it is a shame for a man to have long Hair...."

The Leviticus quote I gave shows that long hair and bushy beards were God's command. As the Scripture you referred to does not define what 'long hair' means I believe you are improperly using Scripture to support your (nonBiblical) personal view.

You do not have to approve of long hair but men obvioulsy can have it if they choose. Get over it!

Matthew 8:22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.
I guess it doesn't take much thinking to bury your dead.

No. Eccles 9:5 states "For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not any thing,neither have they any more a reward, for the memory of them is forgotten."
We are "asleep" in death & will awake & arise when Jesus comes during the ressurection. Look at Lazurus,Jesus said he was sleeping ,though he was dead.. Lazurus was risen to show a miricle,but he never spoke of heaven because he wasn't there, he was still in the grave. So to conclude the passage & answer, no the dead can not think.

Leon, Elder: While I agree that some contributors MAY APPEAR not to think, I don't agree that dead people can type. I've never seen a corpse operate a laptop, and a spook doesn't have fingers. Now what?

My mother is in hell! When I asked God what it was like for her in there, I didn't know if it was appropriate or not to ask such a question. and I said so to God. He answered me. He said, "that she is most uncomfortable. And she can not figure out why she is in there". This is all that I know. I will look up some Scriptures later. Some are coming to my wonderful mind. I am still going to look up some Scriptures....and I have. Check out Luke 16:23. This Scripture is describing in what took place after death in the case of two men. Jesus told it, and is a true historical narrative..... Jesus You are so wonderful.

why yes,they can!the spiritually dead can because God asks them to choose him,and they are held accountable for their choices.physically dead can also think as in rev. when the saints cry out for justice on the wicked on the earth, or as the rich man in hell who wanted a drink of water,and a messenger to be sent to his family.how can dead people think?well people never really die. the soul and spitit always dwell even if the body is destroyed ,for an un believer the spirit is dead but the soul is alive thus giving them the power to think and make decisions.
