    Can You Put Old Wine Into Old Wine Skins?

    . A 40 year-old bottle of pressed grapes in our day has very different characteristics than a skin of pressed grapes the same age in their day. In our day, the liquid is still suitable for a beverage because bottling arrests fermentation, whereas they had no effective way that I know of to...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . • Gen 11:1 . . Everyone on earth had the same language and the same words. The Hebrew word for "language" is from saphah (saw-faw') which means: the lip. The one for "words" is from dabar (daw-baw') which means: a word (as spoken or written) Spoken languages are a combination of words and...

    The Second Death

    . According to Matt 10:28, the human body and the human soul are to be terminated in geena (gheh'-en-nah). If so; then what's left of people for eternal suffering? BTW: God has a soul. (Lev 26:11, Lev 26:30, Judg 10:16, Isa 42:1, Jer 32:41, and Zech 11:8) _

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . • John 14:2 . . In my Father's house are many private rooms . . I go to prepare a place for you. The nicer hotels usually decorate rooms with flowers and even leave some candy mints on pillows. Well; a Christian I met some years ago said he expects his cat to be waiting for him in the room...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . In the story told at Luke 16:19-31, a beggar was transported by angels to a pleasant afterlife location. I'm a little curious why the Bible doesn't say how Christians are transported to where they're going when they die. It's possible that the beggar's transportation is the way it's always...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . Only people with Heaven locked in have reason to expect anything there; everyone else is crossing their fingers for the best while in the back of their minds dreading the worst. And it's likely many haven't given Heaven much thought seeing as how in their minds even just getting there is a...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . Human intelligence is produced by a three-pound lump of flabby organic tissue housed within our bony little skulls; and not even all three of those pounds are utilized for cognitive processes-- in point of fact, something like 60% of the human brain's mass is fat. The IQ of roughly 67% of...

    Would God Send Me To Hell?

    . I was 24 before becoming an on-going student of the Bible in Feb 1968. In all the 54 years since then I have yet to discover even one single verse that either condemns, prohibits, and/or discourages taking one's own life. I'm not saying there isn't a verse; only that I've yet to be shown...

    Would God Send Me To Hell?

    . Fortunately Jesus' followers are accounted already passed away; so suicide for them isn't an issue. Their demise is a done deal and there's no going back. • Rom 6:3-11 . . Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? . . For we know that...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . • 1Cor 13:12 . . Now we see things imperfectly as in a poor mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God knows me now. Back then, mirrors were made of metal, and their...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . • Heb 2:5-8 . .The future world we are talking about will not be controlled by angels. For somewhere in the Scriptures it says: What is man that you should think of him, and the son of man that you should care for him? . . . For a little while you made him lower than the angels, and you...

    What I Expect In Heaven

    . I think it's normal to feel a bit of anxiety about meeting with Jesus one-on-one because we dread he may be someone with whom we cannot relate. But not so. Jesus was on track to become a high priest. Well, that position has always been men rather than angels for a very good reason: sympathy...
