Ζωηφόρος

Some nice words (9)

1. Is it possible for someone who falls as he is walking, to say, let me stay down after all i can fall again?  Of course no. Therefore in the same way, anyone who falls in sins, shouldn’t say, i won’t go to the spiritual father for my sins, after all i can fall again.

 

2. The devil has nothing good to offer to man, so he diverts him to worship the beautiful creatures of God, and not God himself.

3. Many people have confessed their sins even in public where they can't even get the due forgiveness. Others don't confess to a spiritual father who has the authority from Christ himself to announce forgiveness. What a pity!! Could they know what injustice they do to themselves, in what a big danger they leave themselves, and what relief they deprive their conscious.

4. The most dangerous lie by which the devil deceives the careless is to make them believe that he doesn’t exist. Therefore, they take his evil signs to be their own wisdom.

5. Whoever leans only on his own abilities and not on God is like one who leans with his hands on a rotten walking stick.

6.   WITH DEATH   EVEN   THE SOUL   DIES ?

No, because  the  soul   doesn’t  die  believing  with  the teaching  the holy  Bible, of   the  holy  traditions  but with  other  religious  and  philosophical  theories. The lord declared with concern, ‘Don’t  fear  those who  kill the  body  but cannot  kill the  soul.(Math. 10,28).The   soul  therefore, leave  after  the  death  of   the  body.

Other wise,  there  also  words  brought  during  the resurrection  of  the daughter   of   Jaures , <<and  her Spirit  >>  at  once,  and they  gave  her  the  food.(Luke. 8,55) Because  the daughter  had  died, but  even  they say   that  her  soul  came  back.  It means  that  the soul  didn’t die  because  if  the soul  had disappeared,   they  wouldn’t   say  that     it  came back.  But the soul stays alive even after death.

7.  WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DEATH?

Spiritual  death   is  disappearance/ absence  of  the soul  from  the  community , society  of  the  person , with  the Spirit  of  God.  Even  that   can  happen  before  the death  of  the body  occurs, as  it  seen  in  areas  of  the holy  Bible, from  some  which  are  represented  as  follows: A.  The  people  who  live  in darkness, have seen  a great  light, and  shadow  of  death  on them  a light  has  been  shown.(Math 4,16)  B.I  was  once  alive  apart  from  the  law ,but  when  the  commandment  came,  sin  came  alive  and  I  died.  The  very  commandment   that  promised  life  proved  to   be  death  to  me.(Romans, 7,9-10).

But  after  the  death  of   the body, the  spirit   continues  but  if  before  the   bodily  didn’t  have  the cause  of  the death,  which    is   the   sin, because  the   wage  of  sin  is  death.(Romans.6,23). Exactly,  its   possible  for  the person  to dismiss  the  spiritual   death  before  the bodily  death,  basing   on  the   lord’s  words  “ Every  one  who  lives  and   believes  in  me   shall  never  die.(John, 11,26). On   the other hand, this should be the   aim/ target every believer, or conquest   of the century.

8. HOW  IS  IT POSSIBLE  FOR THE SOUL/SPIRIT  TO  CONQUER  DEATH?

As   Christ   is  the  winner  of  sin  and  death, the spiritual  death   loose  the  power  for all  of  those  who  accepts   the salvation  redeemer/rescuer , and  opens for  them  widely  in the  eternal   life. Truly, truly, I say  to  you  whoever  hears  my  word  and  believes  him  who  sent  me  has  eternal life. He  doesn’t  come  into  judgment , but  has  passed  from  death  to  life.( JOHN, 5,24)  Therefore,  the problem  of   death is  solved  to  whoever  needs  be  helped or taken   by  the truth  of   revelation , and doesn’t  stay  in  the land  of  salvation  brought   by  Christ  with  rescuing  work. In  that  sense,  death loose  its  amazing  face , and  the eternal  life  becomes  reality, because  the  last  enemy  to  be  destroyed  is  death(Corinthians. 15,26).

9. IS THE PHRASE POSITIVE ACTION   HOLDS/ACCEPTED THEOLOGICALLY?

Not  exactly  because, if  it  remains positive action  is the best from  the negative, but  Theology  in most  cases holds  Godly  actions .Apostle  Paul write concerning,<<for it is God who  works  in  you, both to will  and  to  work for his good pleasure>>(Philippians.2,13).

But why  therefore  some  thing  which  is positive, is  not  called Godly, after  all  is coming  from  God? In  other  words,<<Every  good gift and perfect   gift  is  from  above,   coming  down  from  the  father of lights  with  whom  there   is  no variation  or  shadow  due  to  change>>(James. 1,17).
