Unequally Yoked Marriage
  
Jenny,Ihave found that many couples thought they had sought God thoughly for a mate and had'nt.Now that the marriage is,the wisest thing to do is to continue to fast and pray.Walk upright before God,for the Bible shares with us in saying,"a sanctified wife, sanctifies the husband".Be encouraged and don't give up.Seek spiritual counseling always.Ask God to cause your husbands affections to return to you and ask God to give you what to pray and how to pray.Remember you are not alone.This experience will serve as a teaching tool for other women who will undoubtedly go through the same thing.

I Hate My Husband
  
You want to hear something freaky. My husband complains that the bowls I bought are too scratchy, the silverware is too heavy. A freak.

Jerry, adding onto yesterday's answer to you, after Jesus rose from the dead he made several appearances to people. He wasn't readily recognized and didn't resemble the Saviour who was badly beaten and crucified. As far as calling the spirit being absent from the body "spiritualism", it says in Phillipians chap. 1,verses 22-25 Paul was "in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, & to be with Christ, which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful to you. And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide & continue with you all for your furtherance & joy of faith." In II Corinthians chap. 5, vs. 8, he speaks of being absent from the body & present with the Lord!


Who is Myles Munroe?
  
Jerry, in Phillipians chap. 3, vs. 20-21,"....from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself." Here as I stated before we see Jesus Christ has a glorious body now, and our vile bodies will one day be changed and fashioned like his. In Isaiah chap. 52, vs. 14 it says concerning Jesus Christ's facial appearance or visage that he "was so marred more than any man." In the appearances he made to people after rising from the dead, he wasn't readily recognized as the crucified beaten Savior. His new appearance wasn't the same.

He has a glorious body now, not the mangled one described in Isaiah chap. 52, vs. 14 "...his visage was so marred more than any man..." Of course, this described his future appearance at the time after the crucifixtion and being whipped, etc.

Calhoon, God doesn't torture anyone, but He does allow those who reject His Son's sacrifice to go to the place of torment, which is hell. Why are you not bothered that Jesus Christ,(who was God manifest in the flesh and committed no sin died for all mankind to have the right to eternal life and a personal relationship with God), is rejected by sinful people who want to make a mockery of His great gift of salvation offered to all who choose to believe, receive and repent??? What about God? All you seem to be concerned with is the justice laid out for these horrendous deeds rebellious people commit instead of what they're doing against God.

Hebrews chapter 12, verse 1-2, "Wherefore seeing we are compassed about with so great cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside very weight and the sin that doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith." We as Christians have the power to lay aside the sin that can easily beset us in this Christian race. True born again believers have the HOly Spirit living within, and can be overcomers! Romans chapter 8, verse 13 says "...through the Spirit mortify (kill) the deeds of the body.." Hebrews chap. 12, vs. 14 says "Follow peace with all men & holiness without which no man shall see the Lord."

Mark, noone can make anyone believe anything, even the truth of the Word of God which is plain for believers who want the truth. However, I am set for the defence of the gospel truth whether or not it "tickles" people's ears or not. I have given full scriptural proof of what the Bible says about hell, the place of everlasting torment, and for those who believe it, amen, but it's true whether or not any of us want to accept it.

Samuel, that's not what you said and you know it. You disputed what Jesus taught in Luke chapter 16, even saying the man named Lazarus wasn't a beggar, but the point is hell is a very real place of torment and this is shown in the rich man's fate in Luke chapter 16. It's real whether or not you want to accept it. God said it and that settles it, whether any of us believes it or not!

Jerry, let me "break it down" in more simple terms. Sorry you didn't comprehend the scripture references that answered your questions. The first scripture given shows he now has a "glorious body", not like ours that deterioriates, and the promise is given we will have a body fashioned like his is now, changed from our "vile bodies." Second, the next scripture shows obviously the nail prints were left visible for "doubting" Thomas & others like him who had to have proof he was resurrected. Third, Mary didn't recognize Him and this shows His appearance was at least somewhat different than it had been previously when she would see Him prior to being crucified.

Jerry, in Phillipians chap. 3, verses 20-21 it says ".....we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself."(He now has a glorified body.) In John chap. 20, verses 24-31, Thomas would not be convinced that Jesus rose from the dead until he put his finger in the print of the nails and hand in his side. John chap. 20 vs. 15 Mary who was very well acquainted w/Jesus prior to his death didn't recognize him until she heard him speak. She thought he was the gardener.

Samuel, you most certainly did say "Lazarus who was resurrected in Luke 16 was no beggar" earlier in October, and now you're lying about it because many blog entries from people have been submitted and it cannot be pulled up. I answered you with the specific verse stating he was. Luke chap. 16 is not a parable, but talks about a specific man named Lazarus, not the Son of Man/Son of God, but a human being, not an angel of divine nature, but a man named Lazarus. Your understanding is carnal and limited in your study of scripture because you want God to say what you want Him to say like others in these "latter times" who cannot endure sound doctrine and with itching ears turn to fables instead.

Samuel, I know very little or nothing about Greek mythology, but I know hell is a place of eternal torment for souls who reject God and plenty of scriptural evidence has been given to you. You don't believe the Bible entirely, only what tickles your ears.

Also Samuel, in Mark chapter 8, verses 36-37 it says "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" You say the Bible says nothing about the soul,which is untrue, also you incorrectly previously stated Lazarus in chap. 16 was not a beggar, hell wasn't mentioned in Luke chap. 16-another false statement, and a number of disputations against the Word of God.

Samuel, hell in Lkke chap. 16, which is where the rich man's soul went, he was there with his senses intact and fully aware of the torments of hell, or "hades", (the greek word hell is translated from which means hell or place of departed souls), while his physical body was dead and buried. Since hades is the place of departed souls, from which this passage is from, it is safe to say from the definition, his soul is definitely there. It's not what I believe personally, it's what the Bible tells us right there in LUke chapter 16, verse 23.

Samuel, in addition to you saying Luke chapter 16 never mentions the word or place "hell", which is blantantly untrue, you fail to realize the natural and spiritual body can be separated at death as shown to you in James chap. 2, vs. 26, and other scriptures I've already referred you to as well. Once again, the rich man in Luke chap. 16 lifted up his eyes in hell in torment, even though his natural body died and was buried.

Jerry, Jesus rose complete, with a new body. In Luke chap. 24, verses 2-9, we are told about Jesus' body being absent from the tomb where he had laid. The "angels", (which is confirmed in verse 23) explained Jesus had risen from the dead. Our bodies or remains can be seen, even at the state of dust and bones. Our spirits leaves our bodies when we die physically, according to James chapter 2, vs. 26. Also in I Corinthians chap. 5, vs. 8 Paul tells us to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, (of course for the believer.) For in Mark chap. 16 vs. 16, "...he that believeth not shall be damned."

Samuel, I didn't misquote the scripture. II Corinthians chap. 5, vs. 8-10 tells us to be "absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." LUke chap. 16, does tell where two identifiable people ended up after dying on earth, with their senses intact, one in hell lifting up his eyes in torment, verse 23 in Luke chap. 16. This you lied about. Verse 23 definitely says "..in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments..."

Jerry, the vile body is in the grave. In Matthew chapter 27, verses 50-53 says, "... the graves were opened, and the bodies of many of the saints arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrectin and went into the holy city and appeared to many." James chapter 2, verse 26, "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." The body dies, the spirit is alive Jerry. What remains of the vile body, only God HImself can resurrect and change, as He promised in I Thessalonians chapter 4. The scriptures are spiritually discerned, not by a fleshly or natural interpretation only.

Samuel, Moses was seen when God opened the eyes of Peter, James and John to "gaze upon" him at the mount of transfiguration. You can't tell God what to do, what he can't do and how to do what he's done and will do. When Peter wanted to make three tabernacles for each of Moses, Elijah & Jesus, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and Jesus only was left. God made sure they knew He wanted the Son honored, speaking saying, "This is my beloved Son, hear him."(Matthew chap. 17, vs. 1-5, Mark chap. 9,vs. 1-8, Luke chap. 9, vs.28-36)(We already know Moses' body died and was buried which is recorded in Deuteronomy chapter 34, vs. 5-7.)
