THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING AND SUCH IDEAS

As a very young man beginning a career in the sales industry I was given to know my altitude in life and business world would mostly  be determined by my attitude concerning life and business . A positive attitude would produce positive results, whereas a negative would conclude in failure, That is to say where you ended up, a winner, or a day by day or the whole of being a total loser in life . In short, to be a success all I I needed to do was  cast way all doubts,  a having faith in self not doubts and fears.
President Donald Trumps pastor was none other than "Norman Vincent Peal"  the author of the book. There is much truth in the concept because many of its used precepts, unabashedly were lifted straight from the bible. 
Natural laws will work toward the producing  the natural  results of the natural laws espoused, whereas spiritual laws will work to the producing the spiritual results of the spiritual laws espoused and desired. This is a constant. Sow abundantly and you will reap abundantly. Sow in due season and you will reap in season due season. Whatever the case whatsoever you sow that shall you reap. Be it good, unto good, or evil unto evil. my thought today is predicated  from the apostle Paul as he wrote in Romans 12:18-21.  

I LIVE, I BREATHE, I HAVE MY BEING ,

 Good morning on this the tenth day of my discovering I have the Corinavirus19. I am so thankful just to be able to say "Good Morning".   Psalms 128:18 God Is Good at all time. "This poor man did cry out"   and the Lord did hear me, Psalms 34:6-9. And I know he also heard the earnest prayers  of all you who have prayed for me. I live, I breathe, I have my being,  in Christ JESUS my Lord. Please continue praying for my two son, Darrin and Shawn they are both still suffering terrible.

IT SEEMS SO OBVIOUS

AS REGARDING GOD CREATING MANKIND 

AND THEN THE MAKING OF MAN 

    INTO HIS OWN IMAGEAND LIKENESS          
GENESIS CHAPTERS ONE AND TWO 
TELL OF TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT EVENTS
EXPLAINED WITH TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT WORDS WITH TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT MEANINGS

READ GENESIS 1:1-31
NOTE THIS::
Day One God Created The Heaven and Earth, Light and Darkness, Verses 1-5 
Day Two God Created The Sky and Clouds, Verses 6-8
Day three God Created The Land, Sea, Grass, and all vegetation, Verses 9-13
Day Four God Created The Sun, Moon, and Stars, Verses 14-19
Day Five God Created All life in the Sea and The Air, Verses 20-23
Day Six God Created All Land Life and Man, Verses 24-31
Day Seven God Having Finished His Creation Rested, Genesis 2:1-4
READ GENESIS CHAPTER TWO
NOTE THIS:
GOD CEASES FROM HIS LABOR OF CREATION, GENESIS 2:1-4
THAT THERE WAS NO MAN TO CULTIVATE ACCORDING TO PURPOSE, GENESIS 2:5
GOD HAVING ALREADY CREATED MAN AS A SPECIE NOW FORMS MAN FOR A DESIGNED PURPOSE AND ORDAINS HIM TO THAT CONCLUSION, GENESIS 2:6-7
GOD SEPARATES HIS FORMED MAN ADAM, (AN INDIVIDUAL OF A SPECIE STRONGS H120) INTO A PLACE OF MANAGED PURPOSE. HE GIVES THIS MAN HE FORMED FROM THE DUST OF THE EARTH LAWS TO LIVE BY, LAWS OF LIFE AND DEATH. GOD PARTICULARILY NOTED THAT ADAM WAS TO SANCTIFY HIMSELF BY NOT EATING FROM THE TREE (SOURCE) OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, GENESIS  2:8-20.

GOD REACHES INTO THE INERMOST PART OF ADAM AND GIVES HIM A WIFE WHICH IS FLESH OF HIS FLESH AND BONE OF HIS BONE, GENESIS 2:24

PROPERLY DEFINING NOT SELF DEFINING WORDS
The word translated in Genesis 1:27 as created was translated from the Hebrew word  bara (baw-raw) Strongs reference #H1254.

The word translated in Genesis 2:7 as formed was translated from the Hebrew word yatsar (yaw-tsar) Strongs reference #H3335.

In Genesis 1:26 God said, “Let us make man in our image and in our likeness”. 
The word make in Genesis 1:26 is translated from the Hebrew word (ah-saw) which denotes a progressive work such as to bring forth by cultivation, Strongs reference #6213

Humankind as a specie was created (spoken into existence) in Genesis one. God created them male and female created He them. He created them in many diverse kinds, from Neanderthal, to Oriental, to Caucasian, to Negroid, and that He did in abundance.

ABUNDANTLY, Genesis 1 is taken from the Hebrew word H8317, sharats, (shaw-rats) meaning to swarm or abound.

This was His pattern way of creation: for diversity of kind see verses 11, 21, 24, 25.
For abundance in number see verses, 20 and 21, ABUNDANTLY HE CREATED all things.

:Birds of many kinds, one specie many kinds.
:Fish of many kinds,  one specie many kinds.
:Animals of many specie and kinds,  each singular specie separated into many kinds. 
:Reptiles of many kinds, one specie many kinds.
:Humans of many kinds, one specie many kinds.
*Not just two, one male and one female from each specie, of each kind but abundantly of every specie and of every kind. God filled the air, sea, and land with His created life of every specie and every kind.
All specie of every kind were spoken (created from nothing) into existence by God. On the sixth day mankind as a specific specie of every kind was likewise spoken into existence. After God created mankind He then ceased creating and rested from His creative labors.
ALMOST 6000 YEARS AGO GOD FORMED ADAM FROM THE DUST OF THE EARTH BEGINNING THE PROCESS OF MAKING THE MAN HE CREATED INTO HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS
There are true science’s that prove this world, and mankind as a specie has existed far longer than the *5775 years since Adam was formed out of the dust of the ground by God who breathed into his nostrils the breathe of life
PALEONTOLOGY: The study of prehistoric geologic periods, fossils, and life. Although it purports to prove evolution it does not except by prejudicially assuming presupposed conjecture. It does however satisfactorily prove the antiquity of earth and life on earth. 
ARCHEOLOGY: The study of human cultures both prehistoric and historic. Although there are also many untenable presuppositions by reason of evolutionary bias this science does reasonably establish the existence of human cultures far beyond the *5775 years since God formed Adam.  
ANTHROPOLOGY : The science that deals with the origins, physical and cultural development, biological characteristics, and social customs and beliefs of mankind.                    
THE UNKNOWN
How much time elapsed between Genesis chapter 1 and Genesis chapter 2 is an unknown. To suppose eons is not unreasonable. What is known is that there were peoples and societies scattered throughout the continents of the earth with many great cultures. Many of these cultures built cities and accomplished many things. True science has proven through the above referenced sciences that there were peoples and cities in what we know as China and other places over ten thousand years ago. The same is true of the subcontinent of India and is evidenced in many other places. Temples and monuments were erected. Very accurate calendars were developed by the use of astronomy. Written languages were devised such as the Egyptian hieroglyphics and cuneiform of Mesopotamia, Persia and Ugarit societies of what is commonly known today as the Middle East.  From South America to the British Isles substantial evidence proves the existence, intelligence, and genius of mankind many centuries before the reckoned *5775 years since God formed Adam from the dust. 
      Although the literal six twenty-four hour day creationist’ scoff at these sciences there are many evidences proving many of their conclusions in many things. There is no need to deny true science because of the excesses of science falsely so called, First Timothy 6:20-21, to prove the creation of God. Evolution is a false so called science that cannot be proven except to the faithful adherents of its prejudiced conclusions. 
There is also no need for Christians to become members of some religious flat earth society to believe in creation by God.
 Truth compliments and proves truth. Once tradition, myth, supposition, and prejudiced opinion is put aside and only real evidence of both scripture and science is presented the truth will prevail. 
         *5775 dating taken  from the Hebrew/Jewish calendar

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED
(1) Was there really a talking snake with legs, or perhaps it was a dragon?
(2) Was it really a literal apple or some unknown exotic fruit that gave knowledge?
(3) Where did Cain get his wife, was she his sister?
(4) Why did God mark Cain if Adam and his family were the only people alive who were the men that would kill him?
(5) How did Cain build a city without people?
(6) Did Noah really build an ark big enough to house all earth’s life forms? If so how were the animals subsequently dispersed globally? 
(7) Was the flood really global, covering everything from the North Pole to the South Pole covering the entire equatorial circumference the earth; even Mt. Everest which is 29,029 feet high, a full five and one half miles above sea level? 
(8) Is all humanity really descended from Noah and his sons? 
(9) Is the black race cursed to be servants because of supposedly being the descendants of Noah’s son Ham?
(10) Did angelic beings really co-habit with humans and produce giants who were despotic half human and half angel oppressors of man?
The answers to these and many other questions will unfold once the keys of The knowledge of the truth of creation and its purpose are revealed. Acts 8:30-31, James 1:5
PAY ATTENTION TO THE WHAT 
AND HOW  THE WHAT IS BEING SAID
Genesis 1:5,  “There was not a man to till the ground.” Note: It does not say that there existed no a man. It says, “There was no man to till the ground.” There was no man to bring forth according to the cultivated purpose of God. Mankind existed as a specie of many different kinds. Mankind existed in specie and kind in abundance as did all the other beasts, Ecclesiastes 3:18-20. Man in his natural state of flesh existence is no more relevant and has no preeminence above any other beast God created. Man must be born again, John 3:1-7. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Natural life is natural, whereas Spirit life is from God and is spirit. First Corinthians 2:14 gives us to know that, “the natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God.”
    
Note:
In Genesis 1:28-31 God commissioned mankind as a natural specie to subdue the earth, and have dominion over all natural living things. God also allowed mankind to have every tree, fruit, plant, and animal for food forbidding none. The whole of the natural earth was mankind’s to subdue and possess. Yet in Genesis 2:5 there still there was no man to fulfill Genesis 1:26 and be made, (formed) into the image and likeness of his creator. An analogy might be we have many many men here but we have not a one licensed plumber qualified to do our plumbing according to code. There was not a man qualified to bring forth according God’ original plan in making man in the image and likeness of God.

So plentiful was mankind he was likened as being dust in his multitudes of number, Genesis 13:6, Genesis 28:14, Numbers 23:10, First Kings 14:7 connecting to and explaining the dust of, First Kings 16:2, Second Chronicles 1:9.

Mankind was created. Adam was formed from the dust, (chosen and set apart from masses of humanity). God spoke creation into being. He afterward formed and breathed life into Adam. God breathed his life into Adam, Genesis 2:7. 

              John 20:21-22, Jesus upon commissioning the twelve “breathed on them saying receive ye the Holy Ghost”. This statement is in stark similarity to God breathing into the nostrils of Adam. It seems very evident that the breathing on or into is the giving of life in illustrative statement thus denoting the giving of authority for the accomplishing of a certain task. The task of Adam was to initiate the fulfilling of the purpose of the creation of God to wit, the bringing forth in the image and likeness of God.  The divine purpose of the commissioning of the Apostles was to empower them to accomplish the harvesting and judgment of that world.    
A man can form an image from stone, wood, or metal. He can mold clay into form, but he cannot breathe life into it. Man can formulate religious ideas and systems but man not give life through them. Man can form from clay but only God can create clay from nothing. No man can create anything from nothing. 
(1) Out of the masses of created humanity (DUST) God formed Adam.
(2) God gave his formed son whom He breathed life into a special and separated place (called metaphorically the Garden of Eden) where Adam was protected and provided for. (Paul recognizes heavenly places as being conditions of relationship with God wherein The Spirit, blessings, and hope of God was dispensed, Ephesians 1:3, 2:6, and 3;10 proves this concept. A heavenly place is a place in God a place where we can thrive in His purpose’s.)
(3) God gave Adam a wife, Genesis 2:21-25. Then, after the fall in Genesis 3:20 Adam called his wife Eve, the mother of all living. All being all that are according to the plan of God through Adam to Abraham to Jesus Christ Galatians 3:29. The ungodly are not so they are like the chaff the wind drives away, Psalms 1:4. 
·      For consideration : Even as God centuries later brought Abraham forth out of the land of Ur and commissioned him to produce a holy nation, so He did with Adam. God gave Abraham his sister Sarah to wife. Sarah was Abraham's sister, Genesis 20:20, by another mother. The nearest a woman could be to qualify as a wife. Why do we not consider that Eve, like Sarah was the nearest to thing Adams heart in the same way? It is an idea consistent with the pattern of God.  Abraham insisted his son Isaac be married to a woman who was near kindred, Genesis 24:4, then Jacob marries his uncle Laban’ (his mothers brother) daughter Rachel, after marrying her sister Leah. With this in mind why is it not conceivably plausible that Eve was also a near kins-woman? There is no variableness in God, James 1:17. Neither God or His Son Jesus Christ change, Hebrews 8:13.

 THE SIN IN THE GARDEN
God commanded Adam to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The ungodly are a tree (source) of knowledge of good and of evil. The ungodly masses reason, they conclude, they evaluate, they judge, they influence without God or His ways and purposes in consideration. Throughout the scripture the people of God are told not to mix and mingle with the heathen, gentiles, who are the ungodly. God has consistently taught His people to be separated from the world, and all that is in it. We are to love not the world, nor the things that are in the world. Whenever we imbibe or ingest the attitudes, concepts, and values of the ungodly we are eating from that tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam and his wife Eve were instructed to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That is to say they were not to associate with, learn, interact, or cohabit in any way with the heathen. 
   Eve transgressed this commandment then persuaded Adam to do likewise. Jesus called the false religious leaders of Israel “SERPENTS” Matthew 23:33. He also declared that they devour widows houses, Matthew 23:14, Mark 12:40, Luke 20:47, could this not be equated to eating dust? Is it not worth considering that Eve fell under the influence of a pagan idolatrous religious leader who deceived her into doubting and losing faith in God? The idea of a literal talking reptile, which lost its legs and now slithers about eating “dust”, is most certainly a far more fantastic thought. God separated Adam from all other humanity commanding him to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  What is referenced as being a garden, (a place of cultivated production), is the place in God where His chosen people are separated unto Him for His divine purpose of bringing forth in His image and His likeness. The church, (a place of separation unto God) is to be a garden, a place and condition unspoiled and uncompromised by ungodly opposing values, ethics, principles, teachings, attitudes, and morals. Although hidden in figurative metaphor terminology this is exactly what Genesis is speaking of.    
NOAH AND THE FLOOD
GENESIS 6:1-22
KEY QUESTIONS 
*Who were the sons of God in verse two?
*Who or what were the giants in verse four?
*What is meant by Noah was perfect in his “generations” in verse nine?
*Does the word EARTH, (Hebrew word erets, eh’ rets) Strong’s H776, denote the   entirety of the planet in Genesis?
*Was the entirety of the planet under water?

As previously proven there are many mythological concepts adapted from pagan religious practises and teachings which have blurred and confused the reality of biblical truth in many areas. The idea that God has ever had, or now, has more than one Son in Heaven is biblically untenable. Jesus Christ is and forever was the only Son of God in the sense of being supernaturally existent before or since the creation of this world. The Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ was the beginning of the creations of God, Revelation 3:14. Factually it was, according to scripture, Jesus that God created the worlds by, Hebrews 1:1-2, John 1:1-10, Colossians 1:16-17. God created man through the linage of Adam to conditionally become the sons of God, John 1:12, First John 3:1-3. 
*The sons of God in Genesis 6:2 were the descendants of Adam through the righteous linage of Seth. 
*The word giants of verse four, Strong’s reference #H5303 is properly translated as tyrants. Tyrants are men who ruled by oppression and abuse of power. The mixed union of the seed of Seth and the seed of the ungodly obviously afforded a social intellectual advantage of knowledge and opportunity to those born of that illicit union.   
*In Genesis 6:9 the word is generations as in posterity of his birth linage, note chapter 5 verse one. This says that Noah was perfect in posterity not character during his generation. He was not of mixed linage. He had no ungodly ancestry. He was of pure extraction. He was descended from Adam to Lamech his father. Adam fathered Seth, who fathered Enos, who fathered Cainan, who fathered Mahaleel, who fathered Jared, who fathered Enoch, who fathered Methuselah, who fathered Lamech, who fathered Noah who therewith fulfilled ten generations direct from Adam.  
It was the plan of God to produce a seed line of people who were chosen of Him to ultimately produce the manifested sons of God, Romans 8:19. The corruption of His plan by intermarrying with the ungodly grieved God so much He determined to destroy man and all else. After the flood God continued His plan through the linage of Shem unto Abram who became Abraham to whom God made promise unto Christ who’s seed we who are Christ’s are, Galatians 3:29. Again it is notable that it was ten generations from Noah by direct paternal linage to Abraham. 
 The evidence does not afford a plausible argument supporting a global flood some 4,300 years ago.  There is however geological and archaeological evidence allowing us to know that there was a flood in the great crescent area from the Black Sea to the Mesopotamia valley area. That world; the world of Noah; the part of the planet where God was working his divine plan was destroyed by God in a flood. The ark was real, and the flood was real. I however do not believe kangaroo’s, polar bears, alpaca, llama, penguins, or American bison to name just a few were on the ark. All animal life nor all humanity on the planet was annihilated in the flood. Only the animals and the humanity that occupied that part of earth died in the deluge of the wrath of God. Geological evidence should not be dismissed, or adjusted to purpose by prejudice of traditional religious opinion. 
      The word translated earth in Genesis 7 comes from the Hebrew word erets, (eh’rets) Strong’s H776 which means land at large or any part thereof, be it country, field, ground, and is not necessarily comprehended as the entirety of the planet. Which demands the question, (did Moses or any of the ancients even have a comprehension of earth as a planet?) Africa, Europe, North America, South America, Australia, Greenland, Australia, other islands or other lands were not flooded.  The multitudes of (kinds) of peoples of those lands were also untouched by the flood. India, the Orient, had great cities cultures and civilizations before, during, and after the flood of Noah. These peoples whom God had created as recorded in Genesis one, who also had obeyed their commission to fill the earth were not deluged. 
     In Genesis 8:4 it is noted that the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat. The word is mountains not mountain. Recently while visiting the Smokey mountains I parked my motorhome in a valley of that beautiful mountain chain. I was not camping on the top of the Smokey’s but it is reasonable to say I rested my RV in the Smokey mountains whether on the top of a mountain, the foothills or a valley within the mountains I rested myself and vehicle in the Smokeys. 
The word Ararat is properly understood to mean (Armenia) that is to say the Armenian mountains, Strongs  translation from the Hebrew reference #H-780. The word translated mountains  is, reference #H-2022 a range of hills, in effect, hill country. The true understanding of these words with the knowledge that the bible does not say the top of Mount Ararat gives a whole new perspective into understanding the reality of reasonably being able to accept the flood of the antediluvian world as a regional and not a global deluge destroying all life on the planet.  
God created mankind in all his diversity of kind; which is now called race. No race evolved or adapted. All races; (kinds) were created by God, and all races survived the flood. All humanity was created by the design of God according to a diversity of kind. There is one specie of humanity with many kinds. That specie is human. There are diverse kinds of our specie, but we are all of the same specie and are all equally created and accepted by God as humans. We are different but equally loved by God as proven by the choosing of God for the purpose of becoming his manifested sons throughout eternity. The big divider as regarding God and his plan is not our kind, or our gender, our language, or our nationality according to the flesh. Our identity is found in our relationship to God and our place within the plan of God. Are we the Israel of God, (chosen people of God who walk with God), or are we gentiles, (ungodly people)? Galatians 3:26-29, Revelation 5:9, Revelation 14:6, prove conclusively to we who believe the scripture that we who are Christ’s  and as such are Abrahams seed and are for this cause we are the Israel of God and heirs according to the promise.  
We who are Christ’s are the continuation of the fulfilling of the plan of God in as revealed Genesis 1:26. Through Seth who after ten generations from Adam brought forth Noah a man perfect in his generations, who ten generations later was the direct ancestor of Abraham who’s seed we are through Christ perfect in our generations.

BECAUSE IT WAS POLITICALLY EXPEDIENT

 Did you know: that to accommodate the emperor Constantine and his fellow pagan sun god worshippers there was devised a teaching that Jesus Christ was only in the tomb for only the part of two days and the full of two nights. It is taught that He was crucified and died on late Friday afternoon, buried just as the sun was setting then resurrected on the following Sunday morning at sunrise. Jesus said in Matthew 12:39-40, that He would be in the grave for three days another nights. Who is wrong?


THIS IS AS IT REALLY WAS
It was early morning on the thirteenth day of the Jewish month of Nissan, the fourth day of the week. The dawn sunlight was just beginning to pierce through the gaps of the heavy drapes of the main courtroom when a beaten, bedraggled, lonely looking Jew was brought before Pontius Pilate the Roman governor of all Palestine Judea. The night before this same man Jesus Ben Joseph had partaken of the Jewish Passover with his twelve closest followers. One of his followers, a certain man named Judas Iscariot had left the meal early to betray his master to the corrupt high priest Caiaphas, and his equally corrupt court of chief priests who wanted to execute this man called Jesus of Nazareth. For thirty pieces of silver this Judas Iscariot sold the life of the man he once called Lord.
 After Passover this man Jesus, who many thought to be the promised messiah, went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray and was there seized and arrested for high crimes and blasphemes. Having already been before the Jewish court and there convicted of blaspheme and other high crimes against the Jewish God and the Jewish religion it was now necessary that the governor pronounce the final judgment of death. Pilate's wife had pleaded with her husband to not get involved with this Jesus saying that he was a just man. Pilate however knew that the politics of the hour would not allow his not being involved. Sejanus, the executed regent of the Roman emperor Tiberius had appointed Pontius Pilate prefect of Judea, a fact these obnoxious envious political savvy Jewish priests intended to use as evidence of his disloyalty to Tiberius. After Sejanus' plots of seizing the emperor' throne anyone suspected of complicity were soon deposed and executed. These Jews by their pledge of allegiance to Caesar had made it known that if he failed to comply with their wishes they would see to it that Tiberius knew he was a friend and fellow co-conspirator of Sejanus' nefarious plans. 
"These hypocrites fear and hate  this man so much they will even declare their loyalty to Caesar to kill this him," mumbled Pilate to himself. "They only do this to intimidate me with their not so subtle pretended allegiance to Tiberius Caesar into doing their mischief." When he asked  if they would have him crucify their king they had shouted "We have no king but Caesar." Pilate knew the ploy was to force him into the pronouncement of crucifying this man in whom he personally found no fault, but it was either his life or the life of this pitiful looking Jew. Offering the Jews the notorious criminal Barabbas as an alternative as a Passover feast customary release. These stubborn religious politicians refused the offer demanding the crucifixion of this man they called Jesus the blasphemer and imposter Messiah. 

SO IT WAS THE JEWS, USING THE ROMANS WHO IN FACT KILLED CHRIST

First Thessalonians 2:14-15


Jesus when asked to give a sign of His being the messiah he said, Matthew 12:38-40, that His only sign (proof) would be His resurrection three days and three nights after His death and burial. Religion teaches He was crucified on a Friday, buried that evening just before nightfall, and resurrected early Sunday morning.  That would be two nights and one day that Jesus lay in the borrowed tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea, a full two days and one night less than Jesus Christ guaranteed by prophecy. 

THE TRUTH IS

Jesus was crucified on Wednesday Nissan 13th.  by the death of the cross as a common criminal. The authorities knew they had to ensure death and burial before the high sabbath of Passover began at sunset, (The Jews reckoned their days from sunset to sunset). Jesus was hurriedly entombed without the proper embalming of ointments as was the Jewish custom. The tomb had to be closed before sunset on the same day because sunset began the Holy Passover feast  day. Luke 23:53-54, John 19:31-42

That night (Wednesday night) at sunset was the beginning of the Passover Feast the 14th. of Nissan, Jesus lay dead in the tomb. Night one of His prophecy.

The following day (Thursday day) was the high sabbath of Passover. Jesus lay dead in the tomb. Day one of His prophecy.

That night, (Thursday night) was the beginning of the day between the High sabbath and the weekly sabbath. Jesus lay dead in the borrowed tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea . Night two of the prophecy.

The second day after Jesus' execution, Friday Day) was the sixth day of the week. The women spent that day preparing embalming ointments for the proper and customary embalming of the body. Jesus lay dead in the tomb. Day two of His prophecy was fulfilled. 

That night the seventh night of the calendar week (Friday night) was the beginning of the weekly sabbath. Jesus lay dead in the tomb. Night three in the tomb. 

The next morning, sabbath day, (Saturday Day) Jesus lay all day dead in the tomb. That evening Jesus exactly as He had prophesied He arose alive from the dead ending the full three days and three full nights of being dead in the heart of the earth, Matthew 12:39, Isaiah 53:12, after having poured out His soul unto death. 

The following morning which was the first day of the week after His crucifixion the women brought the prepared spices to the tomb and found the Jesus had already arisen. An angel rolled away the stone and announced His having been resurrected, not that morning but the evening before, thereby fulfilling the Lords prophecy to very hour, and moment .

TAKING THE STINGER OUT

It is written in First Corinthians 15:55 that the sting of death is sin. The wages of sin is death, Romans 6:23: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
There are many, many, more terms, and life conditions given throughout the scripture detailing all of the terms, conditions and exceptions of the covenant contract God has given His chosen people, however this is very simple conclusion,  and is the very simplified  essence of the fact.
 There is no hopes of life or resurrection except by Jesus Christ. No other faith has any promise of anything beyond this temporal short life except everlasting death.
 Without God, The Father of all living, drawing someone to Christ, John 6:44,  there is nothing except the sting of everlasting death at the end of this life because that which is born of the flesh is flesh, John 3:6. Flesh without the quickening of The Spirit of God is dead to God, and without hope.
 According to the apostle Peter,  as is illustrated in First Peter 4:17-18, there are three categories of mankind (1) the righteous (2) the ungodly, and (3) the sinner;  of which only the  righteous  the first mentioned will scarcely be saved.
The righteous are clearly identified in, Romans 6:16-23, as being they who through The Spirit are obedient unto righteousness, unto holiness, concluding in everlasting life.

STRANGERS IN A STRANGE VULGAR, PROFANE, AND OBSCENE LAND

  The effete, profane, violent, vulgar, obscene, morally bereft general societies of todays world are a result of decades of the infectious atheistic secular humanist global agenda being fostered upon them. Firstly onto, and into, academia, and then ever so cleverly incrementally infiltrating, buying, coercing, and otherwise taking over the public educational  systems, from kindergarten to high school. Then seizing the news media,  opinion publications, as well as the music, theatre, stage, television, and entertainment media's, they, the Atheistic Secular Humanists Globalists have  by controlling these many avenues succeeded in gaining control of the thought's and opinion's of the general society, and their laws and governments. 
The philosophies and teachings of these enemies of God and righteousness seek to corrupt the minds of all including all who are called Christian. 
     There are those who as true Christians have separated themselves from the corrupting influences of the world, . These, like Moses's first born son can be identified as being "Gershom", (Exodus 2:22) That is to say, they are "strangers in a in a strange land". They love not the world, neither the things that are in the world, (First John 2:15-16). They, wisely do not entangle themselves with the world, (Galatians 5:1:1). They are sanctified holy by separation unto holiness. Thusly they prove, by the overcoming lives they live, what is the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God, (Romans 12:1- 2). This they do by fleeing evil, and escaping the corruption of the damnable influences that dominate the thoughts and opinions of this cursed world.

CONSIDERATION OF CAUSE

  Concerning the doctrine of eternal judgement it is good to look into the scripture to establish what is true. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus, Romans 6:23. In the beginning God told Adam that if ate of the fruit of the tree he would die, Genesis 2:17. Then at the finale of all things we learn that death, and hell will be cast into the lake of fire and that this will be the second death Revelation 20:14. So it is that we, with these and many, many other scripture, establish that it is life or death, not heaven or hell that is in question. In previous blogs I have proven, to those to whom things can be proven, that the soul dies and that hell is not a place of eternal torment but rather it is either the grave, or a condition of death, figuratively or literally.
In Matthew twenty three and twenty four the Lord in his rebuke to the Jewish hierarchy made a reference of hell when speaking of the imminent Gehenna where the worms wouldn't die and the fire couldn't be quenched. What He was speaking of was the eternal judgement that God, through the mouths of the Prophets, pronounced on the nation of Israel. This judgement was fulfilled by Rome in seventy A.D. with the total destruction of that world. He was speaking symbolically concerning the Imagery of Joel 1:4 where the prophet foretold the events that would take place before that generation passed away, Matthew 23:36, Matthew 24:34. Hence the mention of a worm which was in fact the last of the same four powers or plagues that that God illustrated with the man image in Daniel 2:38-44. No natural worm is immortal and could live in a flaming inferno. To conclude that this was a literal statement is nothing less than absurd. Only in the sadistic, medieval, and ridiculous tale of Dante' Inferno could anyone find such an idea as immortal worms.
Now with theses truths in mind follow me into a further truth if you will. Life can be gained and life can be forfeited. When we gain Jesus Christ we gain life; when we forsake Jesus Christ we forfeit life. Remember, the wage of sin is death. Sin by bible definition is transgression of the law First John 3:4. Then to understand a simplest of things consider Romans 4:15, (where no law is there is no transgression.) Where there is no speed limit you cannot transgress the speed limit. To break the law there must be a law. To be a sinner, or law breaker if you please, you must under the law. That is the reason the apostle Peter in 1st Peter 4:18 differentiated mankind into three categories, (And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?) Note the three, RIGHTEOUS, SINNER, UNGODLY. This brings up the concept that there are only two types of persons, saved or lost. How can you be lost if you were never found? As the Psalmist said, Psalms 1:5 the ungodly shall not stand in the judgement nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. The ungodly shall perish. Psa.1:6. Quite simply the ungodly have no resurrection, they perish like the beasts, Ecclesiastes 3:17-20. Jesus said, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit, you must be born again". All flesh is as grass. From the dust it came and to the dust it shall return.
If the Spirit of Him that Raised Christ Jesus dwell in you He shall also quicken your mortal body. Romans 8:11. To be accounted worthy and entitled a resurrection of any kind you must have His Spirit. If any man have not His Spirit he is none of His Romans 8:9.
Now concerning the resurrection we must know that there is a resurrection both for the just and the unjust, Acts 24:15. That is to say that both the sinner and those who live above sin will resurrect. The ungodly will not resurrect; they perish.
Now finally in closing for the time consider these things; First Corinthians 6:9-10, Galatians 6:19-21, Romans 8:12-14, First Corinthians 9:27. Jude 1:12, twice dead; they were dead in their sins and trespasses now they are dead in their sins. Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are IF we we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm until the end. John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Fathers commandments and abide in His love. Paul the apostle asked, "shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?" His answer, "God forbid. How are we that are dead to sin live any longer therein." Romans. 6:1-2?
