Do Ghosts Exist
Ghost by definition is "A disembodied spirit, imagined." That says it all. I have no idea why Jesus did not denounce the existence of ghosts. Perhaps it was for the same reason He never spoke of false gods, It had nothing to do with the gospel teaching or preaching of the kingdom of God and Heaven.

What Is God's Role
"Josef, if God has desired ALL MEN EVERYWHERE to repent, don't you think He has already given all men everywhere to believe?"
Apparently not Kathr, for it is obvious that not all men believe, or repent.

What Is God's Role
"it is given to all men everywhere to believe." Where is that written Kathr? However it is the Father that grants those who are open to believe, the ability to believe, it is His work per John 6:29. Those who believe not simply are not of His sheepfold, figuratively speaking. John 10:26 In this world there are children of the kingdom, and there are children of the wicked one. Mat 13:38

What Is God's Role
"This is my FINAL ANSWER." So be it Kathr. I was not attempting to convince you of anything. I was simply stating my belief, and why I agree with Luke's statement. By the way it is given [you] on behalf of Christ to believe on Him. Phl 1:29

What Is God's Role
"Josef, please show me a verse that uses the EXACT WORDS....ALIVE TO CHRIST." Kathr I'll show you the concept from which it came. Eph2:1>"You He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins," Eph2:5> For "even when we were dead in trespasses, [Father] made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved" Col 2:13>"being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, [you] He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you" Alive to, alive in, or alive with, we were made alive. Made alive with Him, that we might receive Him in us.

What Is God's Role
"No Kathr, if you are saved it is because God made you alive to Christ. It wasn't your work.---Luke on 3/29/17" Amen Luke, well said.

How Did Life Begin
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. He spoke, and it was done, He commanded, and it stood fast. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made."

With God's help, I am seeing my part and I want to never do this again, to you or anyone else. Good for you, and the spirit in you.

Please forgive me if you can. There's nothing to forgive, you where simply stating your beliefs, and they are as valid to you, as mine are to me.

I would like to continue to blog with you, if possible. Why not, I took no offense, and meant no offense, and I really don't think you did.

Thank you for listening to me. Mark the minute I close my mind or ears to anyone, Is the minute I discontinue sharing and exchanging here.

Nicole what makes you think I take anything you or anyone else here says personally? I simply honestly stated a reality as concerning myself, and the way I express myself, whether in writing, or in person. I want to be understood, so I express myself as clearly as I can. There is no reason for anyone to speculate as concerning what I mean, or to read into my words.

"Are you saying Jesus was a symbolic King?"
Nicole I have no problem expressing myself. I say what I mean, and mean what I say. There is no reason for you to assume anything concerning what I write, accept it, or reject it, just as it is stated, unless I personally correct it.

"Its telling to everyone that you have to run to a source outside of "Scripture." to try to defend your, "Position."
John you were first to quote the source to me in an attempt to defend your, "Position." I thought that you trusted it. Your words, "JEHOVAH -"an erroneous pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton, or four-lettered name of God made up of the Hebrew letters Yod He Vav He..." THE UNIVERSAL JEWISH ENCYCLOPAEDIA---john9346 on 1/15/17"
"Sir, my prayer is that you will repent and believe in the Christ of Holy Scripture..." Thank you, but I am fully capable of praying for myself. You assume way to much, and I have no desire to be misrepresented by you.

"Noooo, John the Baptist NEVER use the word symbolically. John states "Behold the Lamb of God" Nicole whether you think John used the word symbolically or not, the term "Lamb of God" as well as "the Lion of the tribe of Judah" is symbolic, since Jesus is neither a lamb or a lion. One of the Angels of God showed John the Apostle that the Lamb's wife is the New Jerusalem, (Rev 21:9) and the New Jerusalem is described as a city in the next verse. Jesus is the bridegroom, and the disciples of Jesus are referred to by Him, as friends of the bridegroom, as witnessed by Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

"Human Marriage is a copy of the true Marriage of the Church and Jesus"--Nicole_Lacey on 1/28/17 I have never understood this analogy. The church is the body of Christ, and will be adopted by the Father as sons, and as sons we will be joint heirs with Jesus, the Son, and I understand Him to be symbolically represented by the lamb, and the Lamb's wife is the New Jerusalem.
