Gordon 2: Most of what you said I too believe. It is hard to know since God did not reveal every detail of everything. You have great opinions and so do others, and it is because you look at things from many perspectives, and take a stand. I am not sure unless I read it from Scripture. Thanks for your great answers.
---Mark_V. on 12/20/10

Gordon, you said:
"Heaven is a Place of Love and true Freedom. The thing is, is that we secure our Choice to live for GOD and follow Him NOW, before Death."
It is God who secures our salvation. No amount of works saves a person. We love Christ because He first loved us. Because of His great love for which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses and sin, He made us alive together with Christ. It was the work of the Holy Spirit and of Christ works on the cross that saves us. By His grace alone. And when we are in heaven will be worshiping Him, because of that love. Here we can complain and go against His will even when we are saved, in heaven there will be no more freedom to sin.
---Mark_V. on 12/20/10

MarkV, Love is a thing of Freedom. Love, TRUE Love, is always "freely given and freely received". Heaven is a Place of Love and true Freedom. The thing is, is that we secure our Choice to live for GOD and follow Him NOW, before Death. When we endure 'til the End (as the Apostle Paul says it), we will receive the Crown of Life in Heaven. Since we faithfully lived for GOD here, He will perfect our Life in Heaven by taking away all sinful lusts, desires and inclinations so that what is left is our desire to love GOD, and He will perfect our will to align with His Perfect Will for Eternity. Having to endure torments in Hell with no say so over it and no ability to escape it is a true loss of freedom and free-will.
---Gordon on 12/20/10

Bill-wella, great points you gave. Everyone I believe will be the same in our eyes when we get to heaven. We would not be able to sin, so selfishness would not be around. Pride either. Pain, no more. Only love to guide us. That is why I said there will be no freedom of choice. only to praise and worship Christ. And when I hear those who speak for free will now in this life, I wonder what they will do in the kingdom of God with no other choice then to love Christ. Will they demand their free will? Won't they be like robots? Doing what the Son directs us, with no freedom of choice to do otherwise? Will they find it boring in heaven? I hear Eloy say we are robots without free will. What will he do?
---Mark_V. on 12/19/10

Well, there are people who have made their own parents an idol . . . as if mom and dad are the greatest above all other people. But God's love makes us all great in His sight, and loving of any and all people, in love doing better good than many parents come close to doing for their children . . . who may worship them who are in fact selfish. So, with Jesus, we will be with all these people so greater than many idolized moms and dads have been. This love will wipe out memories of this earth (Isaiah 65:17), plus have us loving all God's Family, not just certain favorite relatives.
---Bill_willa6989 on 12/18/10

Gordon, I think that you and I are correct in those passages in Gen. If God said "on the day" he could not have meant, "on the thousand years" to Adam. Adam didn't get to the live 1,000 years. Second God said on the day to man. What it meant to him and to us who would read it later.
About heaven, having free will, I do not agree. Here is why, If you have no choices what so ever for your will to choose from, that is not freedom. I believe in heaven, we will be enslave to Christ forever. When we were lost our will was enslaved to sin. The will chooses what it desires, in heaven it will only desire to please God.
---Mark_V. on 12/18/10

Actually God's day may be more than a thousand years.God is an eternal being as are the angels he created.We will also live eternally after we die and we will recognize our family and riends in heaven.
---shirley on 12/18/10

MarkV., You're correct to relay that each Creation Day was 24 hours long. The Bible says GOD made the Earth and the heavens in 6 days. The first day was the creation of the first 24-hour period, the day as we know it now. It was the first "Night and Day". No encoded, between-the-lines, hidden-meaning of a period of 1,000 years as some indicate and believe. The Scriptures are plain and clear about this. To GOD, a 24-hour day is as a 1,000 years because GOD is not limited by time.
---Gordon on 12/18/10

MarkV., People will still have free-will in Heaven. But, Heaven will be perfect and without sin. Heaven will be without those who choose to sin and who love to sin. Heaven will be without people who rebel against GOD and who hate GOD and His Ways. The people in Heaven will be perfected to be truly holy as GOD is Holy. So that, in their free-will, they will ALWAYS choose to love, to follow and to worship GOD. That is not the same as being a "robot". Love is FREELY received and is FREELY given in Heaven. It's the people in Hell and the Lake of Fire who will lose all of their free-will. They will have no choice but to endure the degrading, humiliating and painful torments that will encompass them. They shall never escape from it, ever.
---Gordon on 12/17/10

1Cliff, I did not mean that He made the heavens and the earth on the same day. That could not be possible since they were made on different day. I read exactly what you are reading.
"When I read "in the DAY that the Lord made the earth and the heaven" it make perfect sense *in the time period* the lord made the earth and the heavens

My point was there is no reason whatsoever to assume the day is 1000 years. That is the point. Nothing else. You are assuming because Adam lived about 900 and something years, the day must mean 1000 years. Then you would be speculation something not found there. And a day to man is one day, not 1000 years as it is to God. Those are two complete different context.
---Mark_V. on 12/18/10

Mark V, You are still clinging tenaciously to the
When I read "in the DAY that the Lord made the earth and the heaven" it make perfect sense *in the time period* the lord made the earth and the heavens
(singular) He did not make the earth and heavens on the 6th day! as you said!
Holman Dictionary=Day,Chronological period of varying lengths of time,general expression for time without specific limits(Gen.2.4 Psl.102.3 Isa7.17.)as well as a 24hr.time period! Don't fall into the fundamentalist's trap of "fixing it" to make it fit!
---1st_cliff on 12/16/10

Hello brother Cliff, Gen, 2:4 does not say:
"says heaven and earth were made in one day (yom singular)"
At least not in my Bible. What it does say is,
"These is the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord made the earth and the heavens' Which refers to the 6th day. The author is focusing on the sixth day, giving details which were not mentioned in the overview in chapter one. If He meant that He made both of them on the same day, then it would contradict the six day creation. Chapter one and two are not in chronological sequence, but Genesis 2:4b-24 presents in greater detail some of what Genesis 1:11, 12, 24-31 merely summarizes.
---Mark_V. on 12/16/10

Cliff 2: Now concerning "day" as I mentioned before. Here is a school of though teaching,
Descriptive passages relate what was said or what happened at a particular time. What God says is true, what man says, may or may not be true, What Satan says, usually mixes truth and error. Here God was speaking to man. As man would understand. One day, to him and to us, is one day, not 1,000 years. Here the writer was speaking, (not God) concerning God's sovereignty in 2 Peter 3:9 for he says what a day to God is, "one day as a thousand years" In the context the point was, from man's viewpoint, Christ coming seems like a long time away (Ps.90"4). From God's viewpoint, it will not be long.
---Mark_V. on 12/16/10

Mark V, The word "yom"(day) means period of time not necessarily 24hrs. Why do I say that? Gen.2.4 says heaven and earth were made in one day (yom singular) , we know it took 6. the dictionary says "Yom=period of time" How can we be dogmatic and insist that it was 24hrs? Just imagine that if it was 24 hr. He would have died immediately ,and God would have to start all over again!
How would Adam have known that God was speaking figuratively (spiritually)??
Again I say the bible says nothing about "separation from God" being death!except figuratively "let the dead bury the dead" nothing about "seperation"
---1st_cliff on 12/15/10

Mark, as to your answer, you will know her. In what form she will be, no one knows for sure since no one has come back to tell us, and those who say they have come back cannot proof they did. Peoples opinions vary so much. I lost my wife and I believe by faith that I will see her one day and that we will know each other. Maybe not as husband and wife, but as children of Christ. That's our hope, in the Word of God. No tears, no pain, no more sin. What puzzles me is, some demand their free will now and say that we are not robots, I wonder what they will do when all they do is worship Christ. No more free will to do what they want. They are going to be in trouble. They will not feel comfortable there. Will they demand their free will? Big question.
---Mark_V. on 12/16/10

1Cliff, I was not assuming anything. I read where it says "on the day" you are assuming it means 1000 years. I'm not. There is no reason to assume here. It is an explicit statement not an implicit one. You said,
"a day with God is as 1000 years" With God it is, but not with man. Why would God tell him explicitly 1 day since man did not know that to God it meant 1000 years? Why would God deceive him? When He really meant 1000 years? When He spoke to them the Bible hadn't been written, they had no clue whatsoever that to God 1 day meant 1000 years. So your assumption takes you way off base from what God explicitly said. The problems do arise when people assume or speculate.

Yet Adam lived through the seventh 'day' (thousand years)...another reason similes cannot be taken as fact.

You will recognize her but her body will be celestial "AS" an angel.
Angels are totally different in terms of being without birth, they were created as adult males, like Adam and Eve have a father but no mother, they are ageless, they are without the ability or desire to procreate, and have no fleshly lineage or need of salvation.
---larry on 12/15/10

Mark V, You are assuming that "the day" is a 24 hr. day,so no he didn't die in that period or we wouldn't be here,Right?
As scripture says a day with God is as a thousand years, Adam lived 930 years, so he did die within "the day".
Since He didn't die that (24hr) day now you have to assume a "spiritual death"occured, tho the bible does not say so!
We have enough problem with scripture as it is without adding "assumptions"
---1st_cliff on 12/14/10

1Cliff, I wrote down the passage for you,

"for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die"

He didn't die a physical death that day, he died a spiritual death. He died in sin. Jesus tells us that for a person to enter heaven he must be born again of the Spirit. A spiritual rebirth. A new personal relationship with God. While dead in sin a person is separated from God. When he is alive to Christ he is now connect to God again and forever. One sacrifice for all time.
Sure Adam and Eve were cloth by God, but but all descendants of Adam continue under the curse.
---Mark_V. on 12/14/10

Mark V, I often hear this from fundamentalists.There's no scripture that says "death is separation from God", Granted ,when you lose a loved one and they are interred you are definitely "separated".
Scripture says Gen.5.5. "Altogether Adam LIVED (no mention of death to this point) 930 years and THEN he died" Still he died within the thousand year (day)as stated elsewhere in scripture!
After tossed from Eden, God had dealings with Adam and all his descendants.Even making their clothes...where's the "separation" indicated here???
---1st_cliff on 12/14/10

1Cliff 2: you said,
" **spiritually separated from God through Adam**- scripture?"
Here is what Scripture tells us,
"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, "for the day that you eat of it, you will surely die"
The word "die" is the Gk, word "Muth". which has several meaning in Scripture. First, God takes no pleasure in death Ez. 18:32. A Holy God must separate Himself from anything which is not in harmony with His character. Therefore when our first parents sinned, they had to leave Paradise. They were no longer permitted to continue eating from the tree of life, living in sin. Spiritual death is separation from God.
---Mark_V. on 12/14/10

1Cliff 3: At the moment of their sin, Adam and Eve died spiritually, but because God was merciful they did not die physically until much later (5:5). In the case of Adam the death, was spiritual separation, physical separation, and /or eternal separation. And the reason all of his descendants need Christ. Through Christ they get all of them back. Spiritual life, never to be separated from God again, and eternal life. Hope that help.
---Mark_V. on 12/14/10

MarkV, That's a strange concept, that God "chooses where we are born"??
He could have chosen Saudi as your birth place where you would have no choice but to be Muslim?or the Amazon as a Yanomami?

Hello 1Cliff, you said a lot but I can only answer what I can this time, you said,
"MarkV,I have no problem understanding your beliefs ,I just don't know where they come from!"
My believes come from Scripture. I was raised a Catholic, but there I had traditional Catholic believes. Nothing from Scripture. I didn't believe them, I accepted them as truths. Find out later they were not truths when I compared Scripture to what they had been teaching. That point is concerning Christianity. How I was born into this faith was through the work of God. I could have been born in an Arab nation but wasn't. I could have been born in Africa and have no faith at anything, but I was not. We don't get to choose where to be born, God does.
---Mark_V. on 12/13/10

MarkV,I have no problem understanding your beliefs ,I just don't know where they come from!
IE **spiritually separated from God through Adam**- scripture?
**God unites "THAT" flesh with the spirit**- scripture?
**you want to make sense of it all**- You're absolutely right!
Christians use to drown women they thought were witches in New England!
Hindus believe that the Ganges river came out of the top of Vishnu's head,and cows are sacred!
I think "sensibility" is in order here!
---1st_cliff on 12/12/10

MarkV,I'm not trying to be difficult with you (or any one)
Think about this: Why are you not a JW or SDA or Mormon ? It's because they don't make "sense" to you. right? Your mind tells you "you're on the right path" because you are comfortable in your beliefs!
Or could be how you were raised!
People come by their beliefs through experience, education,research or family history!
---1st_cliff on 12/12/10

1Cliff, you said,
"Micha,Mark aka, Too bad you don't understand the very "basic" Christian concept.
The reason humans die is that we are biologically descended from Adam with the curse of death on us."

I believe exactly what you said. We die physically through Adam and are spiritually separated from God through Adam.
Now how God works this action, we do not know, what we do know is that it does. The same holds true for our flesh when it dies, it does turn to dust, how God unites that flesh with the Spirit we do not know, but Scripture tells us He does. I said the problem you have is not believing the Word of God by faith. You want to make sense of it all, but you cannot with your wisdom, it takes faith.

I don't know where the concept of harps comes from, but I will take my post wherever He decides serving Jesus Christ forever.

//So when does faith become "credulity?"//

well, i know in "christianity" there were many instances of "believe like us or you die or you are banished". however, there are religious systems that kill anybody that does not believe like they do. there are others will totally cut you off from your family and their god if your faith is not exactly like theirs.

Gordon , Where did you get that information? Reader's Digest? or some other publication, certainly not from the Bible!
---1st_cliff on 12/11/10

When the bodies of the "dead" Saints are resurrected and reunited with their souls, those corrupted bodies will be instantly changed into incorruptible bodies. Those new bodies will be of a Spiritual matter that will be TANGIBLE as our flesh-and-blood bodies are now, but, they will be strong, healthy, beautiful and will not decay, get sick or die ever again. Similarly, those in Hell have, and will have, bodies that will not "die" per se, but, will experience corruption, corrosion, decay, torment and pain. They will have bodies with such a nature that will never die. They will never cease to exist, never cease from constantly experiencing those horrifying elements.
---Gordon on 12/10/10

aka, Thanks for asking.
My belief is quite simple.
God put Adam and Eve here to populate the earth. He already had 100million Angels in heaven,the (new)earth is our permanent home,Christ died to remove the curse of death so we could carry out God's purpose.Jesus will take some to be Kings and Priests to rule with Him.
I personally have no desire to sit on a cloud and play a harp! I love our flora and fauna ,with death removed who could want better? God did not change His mind. Satan changed people's minds.
To be like gods! Live in the sky! Never satisfied with God's plan!(Just like the Israelites were)

So what I glean from your answers is , it doesn't have to make sense, you just believe it!
Christ mentioned 1st and 2nd resurrections,so these people who got up and ran around had their 1st resurrections? (over them the 2nd death has no authority) so they must still be alive. Not.
They didn't have glorified bodies, you said. They must have been able to re-marry and have children, (resurrected ones cannot do that you say) That Pandora's box is best left closed, it never happened the way it is written!

---1st_cliff on 12/6/10

Paul, your words are so truthful. What I see concerning 1Cliff, he lacks faith in the Word of God. Everything he studies has to conform to what he thinks is truth. A man of God does not do that, he believes in the Word of God even though he might not understand a lot of it. What he does know is, that it's the Word of God, and that He will believe it no matter what. The fact is that, a lot of things are almost impossible for us to understand, but we know they came from the Word of God, they have to be true. His creation is hard to understand. Cliff want's to understand how it was possible, and as long as he doesn't know, he will not believe it. He can choose what he wants to believe and the rest is false. A lack of true faith.

---1st_cliff on 12/5/10


you are entering a circular debate with cliff. i guess the jw in him is arising again.

the bottom line of a jw is to deny the deity of Christ. they never talk about what they believe. they only pick apart our scripture to tell you what not to believe.

if Jesus said that no spirit rises, then by implication, neither did His.

//like the rest of them//

Paul, One cannot be too dogmatic about this incident, not substantiated from any other gospel, the language used makes it look like a "resurrection" but they would have to have preceded Christ's resurrection. We're talking One cemetery, a handful of bodies who would have died the 2nd time? Regardless of how it's worded it's more like the earthquake shook the bodies out of the ground in various stages of decay,those who saw this ran to the city and told about it!
Did they come down from heaven and climb into their decomposed bodies? Nah!

Paul, you seemed to ignore Revelation Chapter 21:1-8 where it talks about the New Heaven and New Earth and the establishment of the New Jerusalem which we will eventually inhabit.

There was wonderful adage "When you take scripture of Context, it becomes a Pretext or False Teaching." You see to excel at doing it.

Sorry for your loss. However we can rejoice in the Lord knowing we WILL BE united at the ressurection where everyone at the same time will be raised . It should calm you to know she is resting & doesn't feel anything, & will be reunited when Jesus calls us home.

mark c,

may I ask how old you are now? how she passed? do you have other siblings?

This is what I have found scripture to say.

2Co 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Matt 27: 52 And the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

Just to post a few.

God Bless, Paul

Mark 12:25
[25] For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels which are in heaven.

Revelation 22:9
[8] And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
[9] Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Those saved will be as the angels.

Our minds are not erased of our family members when we live in heaven. The heavenly members you know of the body of Christ upon the earth will be the same heavenly members you know when you are in heaven.

Popular culture, reflected in such shows as IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and DOWN TO EARTH are based on the premise that good people become angels when they die, this is not so.

After all, a dog doesn't become a cat when it dies, does it?

Angels and humans are two entirely different orders of beings. Angels are pure spirits. Humans are microcosms of creation with both spirits and physical bodies.

Mark, You will definitely recognize and know your mother in Heaven. But, she will be (and IS) in spiritual HUMAN FORM. Mankind in Heaven do not become angels. Angels are a totally separate kind of created entity. Although angels themselves have the GOD-given power to take on the form of human beings.

ISAIAH 65:17 For behold I create new heavens and a new earth: AND the FORMER SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED NOR COME INTO MINE.

ECCLESIASTES 2:16 ------- Seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten, -----------

She will never be an angle as they are not a humans.

If you are both have been selected for Gods family you will get there about the same time after the resurrection of the dead and judgement are completed and if you read your bible you don't go to heaven you remain on earth as an occupant of the new Jurusalem that is created here on earth after Christ return. Just think of it as one of God's Habit for Eternity projects.

Yes you will know her and she will know you as well. You see when your mother went to heaven she became like Christ in the since that she got a new body.

When Christ first came back from the dead He was in spirit form.
Joh 20:17

When He came back from Heaven He was in new flesh.
Joh 20: 26-27

And when we leave here we will be like Him.
1Jo 3:2

And when we arrive in Heaven we will be aware of our surroundings.
1Co 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face: now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Hope this helps. God Bless, Paul
