it do, did you not read, A. post #13... and B. Hebrews 12:4 "Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.".I don't disagree. What you seem to be missing is that "lose his life for My sake" is not speaking of a physical death.
again, cannot buy what you're trying to sell. try again.
once again, the Lord Jesus is speaking of physical death, PLEASE LISTEN, Matthew 16:28 "Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom."What part of the above don't you understand?
what do TASTE ..... "of" ...... DEATH means? lets see if we can make it clear, listen, Hebrews 2:9 "But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man."
so I ask, was the Lord Jesus "DEATH", physical, or figuratively? which one, looking to hear your answer.
