Tell them to go and MEET PEOPLE IN THEIR HOMES as directed by Jesus, to teach them all this things. The social media is not for such things that's why everyone is abusing, insulting and cursing one another as none of you is ready to humble yourselves! cheesy

do u know there are only 3 people who has ascended into heaven in Bodily form.. Just 3...the body of 2 were later carried after dead. Meaning in the whole history of Man.. Just 3..

When Saul called on Samuel from the dead... Was it in bodily Form?

1 Samuel 28:11-15 KJV
Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. [12] And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. [13] And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. [15] And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.


Bro open your eyes and heart to God....


You really need to pray for understanding.

No where is it written that Saul saw Samuel he only perceived that it was Samuel that the woman saw..

The truth is that the woman saw gods not Samuel, this is evident in statement.

13]" And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest
thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending
out of the earth"



Saul was deceived by the woman and the Devil.
A demon impersonated Samuel and appeared and talked like Samuel but it was never Samuel.

There is no where in that verse that says Samuel appeared in bodily form.

Note only Jesus has power over death. only him can raise one from the grave.

After Christ died on the cross the graves opened and just people who were in their graves rose and where seen in the town walking in bodily form.

1 Corinthians 15:45-53 KJV
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. [46] Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. [47] The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. [48] As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. [49] And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. [50] Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. [51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.


Open your Heart to those verses.... They appear in bodily form but not with their real body....
The word appear means..something that can also disappear... They didnt continue living but was changed into a glorious body that can transcend into heaven

You are really confused.

Are you sure you read my original post?

I mentioned it that the just will resurrect bodily but their body will be transformed, mortal body will be changed to immortal bodies.
2 Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the
Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at
his appearing and his kingdom;
The unjust will also be ressurected but will not experience any
changes in their body or nature they will still be raised with the
corruptible body which they had before they died they will be
judged and cast into the lake of fire which the Bible calls the
second death.

I thought you said it was the Soul? now you admit that it is the body but not in this present form.

If you had read my article you would have no need for your endless arguments.

No wonder.
You barely understand the Bible.

All appearance of dead people are nothing but deception from the Devil.

The bible says the dead know nothing.

Psalms 76:6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.

Ecclesiastes 9:4 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Job 7:6 My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope. 7:7 O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good. 7:8 The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not. 7:9 As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. 7:10 He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.


Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. 9:6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.

bro appearing in bodily form and body are different... The soul is what u see that appears in bodily forms... Its your soul that roam around.. Seems u are adamant on ur view... Every change or occurrence is to your soul... I just hope you aint a pastor or bible teacher because you will mislead people alot... Shalom...

All u do is quote bible verse.. You don't understand them alot.. Go to you pastor for clarification


So the ones the bible said appear are by the devil abi??

Elijah and moses during transfiguration are from the Devil

Matthew 27:52-53 KJV
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, [53] And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Death is referred to as a sleep 66 times in the Bible. I have
listed them here.
Thou (Moses) shall sleep with thy fathers. Deuteronomy 31:16 .
Thou (David) shalt sleep with thy fathers. 2 Samuel 7:12 .
The king (David) shall sleep with his fathers. 1 Kings 1:21 .
So David slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 2:10 .
David slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 11:21 .
He (Jeroboam) slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 14:20 .
Rehoboam slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 14:31 .
Abijam slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 15:8 .
Asa slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 15:24 .
Baasha slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 16:6 .
Omri slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 16:28 .
Ahab slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 22:40 .
Jehosaphat slept with his fathers. 1 Kings 22:50 .
Joram slept with his fathers. 2 Kings 8:24
Jehu slept with his fathers. 2 Kings 10:35 .
Jehoahaz slept with his fathers. 2 Kings 13:9 .
I should have slept . Job 3:13 .
Now shall I sleep . Job 7:21 .
They have slept their sleep. Psalm 76:5 .
And sleep a perpetual sleep . Jeremiah 51:39 .
Them that sleep in the dust. Daniel 12:2 .
Is not dead, but sleepeth. Matthew 9:24 .
Lazarus sleepeth. John 11:11 .
Some are fallen asleep. 1 Corinthians 15:6 .
Concerning them which are asleep. 1 Thessalonians 4:13 .
Since the fathers fell asleep . 2 Peter 3:4 .
"Sleep" is clearly the biblical term for death. Here are the rest
of the texts which refer to death as "sleep." They are:
2 Kings 13:13; 14:16,22,29; 15:7,22,38; 16:20; 20:21; 21:18;
24:6;
2 Chronicles 9:31; 12:16; 14:1; 16:13; 21:1; 26:2,23; 27:9;
28:27
2 Chronicles 32:33; 33:20; Job 14:12; Psalm 13:3; 76:6; 90:5
Jeremiah 51:57; Matthew 27:52; Mark 5:39; Luke 8:52; Acts
7:60
Acts 13:36; 1 Corinthians 11:30; 15:18,20.
Clearly, both in the Old and New Testaments, "sleep" is used
to describe death. To them it was a sleep till Jesus or the
Messiah comes!

The Dead do not Know Anything
The Bible is very plain. It says the dead do not know anything.
Look at this text:
5. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead
know not any thing, neither have they any more a
reward; for the memory of them is forgotten .
6. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is
now perished; neither have they any more a portion for
ever in any thing that is done under the sun .
10. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy
might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge,
nor wisdom, in the grave , whither thou goest.
Ecclesiastes 9:5-6,10.
Now for the first time we see death described. "The dead
know not any thing!" Everything about them is gone, their
memory, their love, their hatred, their envy, and they no longer
act. They are asleep. They are nonexistent.
4. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in
that very day his thoughts perish. Psalms 146:4.
Again we see that when the breath of life goes back to God
and the body returns to dust, that their thoughts perish. It
should be clear that the dead cannot talk, or think or do
anything. They essentially no longer exist as a living thinking
person.
This agrees with what we saw before. Adam became a living
person. He became a living soul. So now, when we die, we
cease from being a living person. We cease from being a living
soul. We no longer exist because our thoughts perish.
This also agrees with Jesus' description of death. He called it
sleep as we saw earlier.
There is more.
17. The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go
down into silence .
18. But we will bless the LORD from this time forth
and for evermore. Praise the LORD. Psalms 115:17-18.
So a major difference is made. The dead cannot praise God at
all but those who live can.
4. Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for
thy mercies' sake.
5. For in death there is no remembrance of thee : in
the grave who shall give thee thanks ? Psalms 6:4-5.
17. Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou
hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of
corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy
back.
18. For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not
celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot
hope for thy truth .
19. The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do
this day: the father to the children shall make known
thy truth. Job 38:17-19.
Apparently a few of the writers in Psalms and also Job, are
pleading to be delivered by God. They are saying to God that
they can praise Him if they are alive but if they die they can no
longer give God thanks.
31. Who shall declare his way to his face? And who
shall repay him what he hath done?
32. Yet shall he be brought to the grave , and shall
remain in the tomb . Job 21:31-32.
9. As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so
he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no
more.
10. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall
his place know him any more.
11. Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak
in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the
bitterness of my soul. Job 7:9-11
Job sees that his only future is the grave and death. Job sees
this fate of his as depressing to the point that he is anguishing
in bitterness over his death and does not stop complaining to
God.

18. For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not
celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot
hope for thy truth .
19. The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do
this day: the father to the children shall make known
thy truth. Job 38:17-19.
Apparently a few of the writers in Psalms and also Job, are
pleading to be delivered by God. They are saying to God that
they can praise Him if they are alive but if they die they can no
longer give God thanks.
31. Who shall declare his way to his face? And who
shall repay him what he hath done?
32. Yet shall he be brought to the grave , and shall
remain in the tomb . Job 21:31-32.
9. As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so
he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no
more.
10. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall
his place know him any more.
11. Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak
in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the
bitterness of my soul. Job 7:9-11
Job sees that his only future is the grave and death. Job sees
this fate of his as depressing to the point that he is anguishing
in bitterness over his death and does not stop complaining to
God.
so how was samuel conscious enough to communicate with Saul


You need to pray for an understanding Heart Bro.. Shalom

How is this relevant to our discussion?

Show where it is written that their would be 2 resurrection for the just.

Revelations 20:5-6

Do you thinking JW are making more impact than Adventist.
You think making impact is by going house to house disturbing and teaching false doctrine to people?


Let's see some evidence Adventist has over 25million members which is about 17million more than JW.

Adventists has over 8500 schools and Hospitals providing education and free medical care.
Over 100 homes for the elderly.

Over 10000 projects and housing mission programmes in over 100 countries all over the World.

The list is endless.

That's great but can you please show me what all these has to do with the preaching and teaching work Jesus commissioned?

A charity organization differs from what Jesus establish!
None of those things you mentioned up there appeared in the works done by Jesus or the first century Christians. So the group you're presenting aren't following the footsteps of the first century Christians!

The Catholics did the same thing Sir, and they're now running to billions. But what Jesus established was a preaching and teaching program NOT a charity organization! cheesy
Re: What Goes To Heaven Or Hell, Is It Body,soul Or Spirit. by Maximus69: 8:08pm On Feb 27
When Satan blurs people's vision, they will never notice it!

Jesus commissioned a preaching and teaching program that will help gather peace lovers as one global family. Matthew 10:3-15 compare to Micah 4:1-3

Satan initiated so many groups to confuse those who aren't focused on Jesus' mission. Some are mourners always crying like babies to prove how saddened they're towards sin, some are antisocial so that they dress like wailers all the time, still others are noisemakers with different types of absurd outfits claiming they're not worldly, some are charity groups thinking they're doing Jesus good with their charity works, while others are entertainers bringing all sorts of entertainment into the scene.

Jesus only arranged for people to go from house to house preaching and teaching in all their neighborhood how we can make PEACE with everyone living around us! smiley

So you have forgotten that love is the greatest commandments?

If you go and preach to a hungry man without giving him food you have just wasted your time.

Same as sick or naked person.

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest
commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your mind.’[ a ] 38 This is the first and
greatest commandment. 39 And the second is
like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[ b ] 40
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these
two commandments.”

Matthew 25:36-40English Standard Version
Update
36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was
sick and you visited me, I was in prison and
you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will
answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see
you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give
you drink? 38 And when did we see you a
stranger and welcome you, or naked and
clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick
or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King
will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you
did it to one of the least of these my brothers,
[ a ] you did it to me.’


Ours is not just preaching but also demonstrating the teachings and principles of Christ which is love.

Even Christ taught his disciples to show and demonstrate love to the needy.

The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and
all the [a ]holy angels with Him, then He will sit on
the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be
gathered before Him, and He will separate them
one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep
from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on
His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then
the King will say to those on His right hand,
‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the
kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of
the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me
food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a
stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and
you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I
was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying,
‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You,
or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see
You a stranger and take You in, or naked and
clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in
prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will
answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you,
inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these
My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left
hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the
everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his
angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no
food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I
was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked
and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and
you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer [b ]Him, saying,
‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a
stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not
minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them,
saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you
did not do it to one of the least of these, you did
not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into
everlasting punishment, but the righteous into
eternal life.”

Revelations 20:5-6

Stated clearly that there are two resurrection!

Read and tell people what John meant by those having part in the FIRST resurrection then come back to tell us if there is no second! cheesy


Wow!!!! you just shot yourself on the foot.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

From that bible verse it becomes evident that their would be 2 resurrection.

The first one occurs 1000yrs before the 2nd and John the writer of the book of revelation told us that those who are part of the 1st resurrection are blessed because they shall rule with Christ for 1000yrs and they shall not be hurt by the 2nd death.

This implies that all those who are not part of the 1st resurrection are condemned to die the second death.

look at verse 20:6.

So where did you see people resurrecting to live on Earth and in Heaven?

The first resurrection actually takes place at the 2nd coming of Christ.

1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


This is not my word or idea but God's word.

God's is not interested in popularity.

Remember that truth is not always popular compared to lies and false teachings.

People are naturally willingly to accept lies because it suits their false and sin full life styles.

so how was samuel conscious enough to communicate with Saul


You need to pray for an understanding Heart Bro.. Shalom

It Was not Samuel that appeared.

Like the witch woman said that she saw gods come out of the Earth.

In accordance to God's word it is evident that a demon impersonated Samuel and spoke to Saul.

Remember that the bible says that the Devil can transform himself to an Angel of light.


The truth is that the dead no absolutely nothing thats why God forbids us from communicating with any form of this ghost because he knows they are not the real persons.

Ones a person dies his body turns back to dust, the life or spirit goes back to God and the person ceases totally to exist nothing survives it.

The Soul is the union of the body and the life from God.
it ceases to exist ones the person dies.

The soul is our totality it is who we are, its our thoughts,perception,faculty, mind, thinking, memories and all this can only take place in a body(dust) that has life(spirit or breathe) from God.

Elijah and moses during transfiguration are from the Devil

Matthew 27:52-53 KJV
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, [53] And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.


Bro you are right... I tire.. You cant learn


You amaze me.

In one sentence you contradict yourself.

You said the graves were opened and people came out and yet you are expecting me to believe that they were ghost?

Do ghost need graves to be opened for them?

Elijah and Moses that appeared to Jesus was never their ghost or spirits but their resurrected persons or body.

Every change or occurrence is to your soul... I just hope you aint a pastor or bible teacher because you will mislead people alot... Shalom...

Why do you like to lie against God?

1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.


Where is it written that it is the Soul that is changed from the above bible verse?

Was it the soul or body that was buried in the grave?

look at verse 20:6.
So where did you see people resurrecting to live on Earth and in Heaven?

The underlined is where we differ in the understanding of the scriptures!

Take note that John only said "the rest of the dead did not come to life until the 1,000 years were ended"

It's you that's now APPLYING your interpretation to suit what was WRITTEN there!

So listen to my own interpretation of the same verse and compare now!

Since you've now agreed that there will surely be two resurrections, what we need to sort out now is "WHY?"

The first is the BORN AGAIN class who will rule with Christ in heaven, they needed no more screening!
They're not going to rule over empty space so their subjects will come as a result of the second resurrection which will take place here on earth,that is when bones will come to life {Ezekiel 37:4-6} remember Jesus said "not a single word of those prophecies will fail" so there will be a resurrection also in flesh, blood and bones here on earth, this is the second resurrection!

Those who took part in the first resurrection have been taken to heaven directly so they had underserved kindness of God (grace), which means they no more have any business with all the rules that Jesus gave us put to practice here on earth since they will no more live in the flesh. But those that will live here on Paradise earth still need to be taught all what Jesus commanded, that's the reason John said "scrolls were opened and this (earthly resurrected ones) were judged according their response to the things WRITTEN in those scrolls" {Revelations 20:13} Note also that the Bible said there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous {Act 24:15} the righteous in this case refers to Christians and ancient faithful servants of God, while the unrighteous means all other people from the nations who lived virtuous lives based on their conscience.
Only the Christians have what it takes to live forever (the teachings of Jesus Christ) but both the ancient servants of God and those who lived by conscience still needed some adjustments in their thinking, they must accept all that Jesus commanded otherwise they will die again and return to dust.

During that time, many people who refuse to yield to the preaching of the Christians will not be allowed to live more than 100 years {Isaiah 65:20} that's why John said there were two scrolls, the first is the New Testament in which the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ is written, the second is likened to another scroll because those who refuses to yield will die as a result of their stubbornness to accept the teaching of Christ!

After the Christians on earth might have taught all those living by then Jesus' words, then Satan will be released from the abyss {Revelation 20:3} all those who failed to stand firm in what they've learnt about Jesus' commandment due to Satan's final test will die again! Revelations 20:15

So all those who had the privilege to partake in the first resurrection will not experience all these, that's why John could say the rest of the dead did not come to life (the real everlasting life~ 1Timothy 6:29) until the end of 1,000 years! Revelations 20:5
