What are the angels?

Outside the Bible, angels are told more than the Bible itself. Apocrypha, in particular, have interesting, even vivid stories, but here I primarily focus on what the Bible says. If God had seen the need to give more information and details, we could probably read them from the Bible pages. What are the angels, and […]

The Great Powers

Mat 17:20 He [Jesus] said to them, Because of your unbelief. For most assuredly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21:21 Jesus answered them, Truly I tell […]

The Brothers and Sisters of Christ

Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers, those who do the will of God. Heb 2:11 For both the one who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified all have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers [The word for “brothers” here and where context allows may […]

The Future of Man – New Creation

In the resurrection, people will get a new body, a spiritual body. The ascended are like angels. Angels are invisible but can also take a physical body. In Tobit’s Book (Apocrypha) there is a story of angel Raphael who lived a long time with people and only before returning to heaven he revealed that he […]

The Imperfect Man

Sin People ask what is sin in life. When I was young, I remember one good definition of sin: sin is the abandonment of the heart from God. Above, I was just contemplating wickedness and sin coming from the heart. God gave his ten commandments and Christ summed them up as a dual command of […]

The Flesh

God and angels are spirits and in spirit bodies. Man is instead in the physical body. Man is flesh. When a person is inclined to commit a sin, he may, in his defense, quote the verse of Matthew or Mark: Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that you don’t enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is […]

The Heart

Col 3:23 And whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord, and not for men, ‘Do your work heartily’ sounds better than ‘do your work out of your soul’. However, here is the word psyche (ψυχή psychē), G5590 meaning: 1. the breath of life (animals or men) 2. life 3. that in which there […]

What Is Resurrected: the Spirit, the Soul or the Body?

What is resurrected in heaven? When a man dies, the body decays in the grave, but what about the spirit of man? Ecc 12:7 And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. Ecc 3:20 All go to one place. All are from the dust, […]

The Soul (נָפַשׁ nephesh ) and the Spirit (רוּחַ ruwach)

Is the soul immortal? In the soul, ‘live’ emotions, desires both positive and odious. The soul is seen as a tool of God, a moral being for the eternal life. The soul is not part of the body, nor will it perish in death like the body. Gotquestions.org is of the opinion stating: “it is […]

Man – Like the Angel of the Lord?

Man – Like the Angel of the Lord … God created man in his own image … You have made him a little lower than God [elohim, or: the angels] and you crowned him with glory and honor! (Psa 8:5).   Creation of man Gen 2:7 And Jehovah Elohim formed Man, dust of the ground, and […]
