    Apostle Jackposted 5 years ago

    Christianity is a spiritual concept that have not been presented in it's full capacity.Most people seem to have many views of what spirituality is and how to define it's unseen concept.
    In this category you shall not leave as you came concerning this supernatural and mystery of divine revelation.CELESTIAL SPIRITUALITY is one concept of focus as is presented in 1 Cor 15 v 40,44 concerning our 2 bodies of Celestial and Terrestrial existence and how they are coordinated within each other.
    Your comments will give me cause to further explain.

      All spiritual concept or beliefs origin came from the unknowns

      Then spirituality manifest into our ego selves by experience in which is know in time. People often tell me No, it this or it is that. Christian is an ancient spirituality.

      The Universe is just the 99% unknowns until is known. Most everything I know was once imagined, it’s created in beauty, justice, and happiness. It’s the main source of value in the new economy and the supreme master of art as of life. You create your own universe as you go along. The stronger your imagination, the more expansive your universe becomes

      It’s an act not of reason but an intuition, Imagination is the eye of the soul and the voice of the daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. When he dares to go beyond his wildest dreams, he can imagine everything.

        When you can see it,and understand it's function and that function is express, it is not an imagination nor a dream.Not everyone have this evidence,so I don't expect everyone to express it's knowledge.But if one would lend an ear..they can come away with a basket full of light....symbolically speaking.

      I think we all realize the potential for the search for spirituality within Christianity.  Jesus was definitely unique in his understanding. And there are a few very profound statements scattered through the Acts, but those few statements are overshadowed by everything else written.

      When I run across statements by professed Christians to the effect that everyone else is headed for hell, all the angels in your heaven are male,  the earth is 6000 years old, women were created to serve men and other sundry absurdities; I'm left to wonder if 'spiritual' is the correct term for what your religion is all about.

        Spirituality is define on the other side of,DNA,CELLS,NEURONS,ELEMENTS,ATOMS, MATTER,and MATERIAL SUBSTANCE.That include the brain and the heart .Within the physical body there are spiritual activity that express,intelligence,thoughts,choice,speech,
        personality and image of a Celestial spirit therein,contrary to popular opinion that those traits come from the brain(mind) of our terrestrial bodies(flesh) of which cannot produce nor control such spiritual activity.
        Scientist did not include this in their equations when trying to define how we think, move, and have life within the 2 bodies of our existence.
        Women were created to walk beside the man,not behind,nor in front.

        After the sins of Adam and Eve they became competitors and turn one against the other for dominance and control.Christ was predestinated by God to come forth  with the opportunity to regain the spirituality and unity with God and between themselves that they lost because of that disobedience and separation of thought.
        There was no women in heaven before then because Angels cannot produce nor multiply in body existence,so now the woman have the same opportunity as the man to be a part of Angelic existence.
        All will be explain as we move along in this category.But be assured,it shall exceed beyond scientific and technical equations.

      Those scriptures in the bible is referring to JUDGMENT DAY,and not a 7 year tribulation period.When you did your spirit go into the 4th heaven to await judgment day.The spirit cannot be destroyed until then.
      You must understand what celestial is,and how it function within the physical body in order to know who you are.

      Whoa! Thought spirituality is bunk, Cag. Hell, you're inches from a major conversion here. Maybe even an epiphany. So, sympathy, empathy and compassion are unnecessary. Hope you change your mind before you get too old. The nursing home is gonna really tick you off. What about inspiration, Cag. What about wondering what is out there in the darkness? So much was needed to get us here. Not just love, but it helped.

    Dear Apostle Jack;
    Please forgive the people in this forum, most of them are not acquainted with what the Bible teaches. Some have read it, but they didn't give it enough time and study so as to know it well.
    I understand what you are saying. The spiritual body is different from the earthly body. And when Jesus comes, we will receive the spiritual body in order for Him to take us to heaven, for the earthly body cannot be taken there.
    But, based on you question, i have a feeling that you believe in immortality of the soul. Correct me if i am wrong.

    But if i'm right, may i suggest this to you;
    Man, in essence, does not have an immortal soul, rather, we are mortal souls. Please consider these texts;
    "And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul." Genesis 2:7
    "Dust thou art and unto dust shall thou return." Genesis 3:19
    "For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything." Ecclesiastes 9:5
    "For that which befalleth the sons of men, befalleth beasts, even one thing befalleth them. As the one dieth, so dieth the other, yea they have all one breath, so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast.. All are of the dust, and all turn to dust again." Ecclesiastes 3:19-20
    "Men and brethren, let me speak of the Patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher (grave) is here with us unto this day.. For David is not ascended into the heavens." Acts 2:29, 34
    "The blessed and only potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who only hath immortality.." 1 Timothy 6:16

    You see Jack, we are not immortal by nature. God did not breathe an immortal soul into man, rather, He breathed the breath of life (power to live) and man became a living soul. What happens when you remove the breath of life (power to live)? Death happens. And death is the opposite of life, it is the cessation of life. We turn back to dust on the earth, for we are nothing but dust.
    But God has promised us immortality/ eternal life if we believe and fully surrender our lives to His Son Jesus Christ. But this immortality will be given to us when Jesus comes. In the mean time, we remain in our graves awaiting the resurrection day when Jesus comes.

        earnestshub; you clearly do not know the Bible nor the power of God. When we go to our graves we disintegrate away and become no more. But God still knows who we are and He will bring us back to life, He does not need substance to create. He can create out of nothing. So even if you have wasted away in the dust, He can still call you back to life. He is God. He created the heaven and the earth out of nothing. He just spoke, and they came into existence. Now that is power.

          Show me one of these "coverted" dead people.

          No single person has ever come back from being dead, no prayer has ever been answered, there is not one skein of evidence to support your tome other than what it says about itself.

            I apologize for saying you don't know the Bible. I was saying that based on your previous statements.
            I also beg to differ with what you said that no single person has ever come back from the dead, there are people who have come back from the dead, Jesus is one example. Only the power of God (not god), can do this.

            I can see you have chosen not to believe in the Bible, therefore it will be hard for me to convince you in this.

              I don't even accept that jesus was ever on earth. The story comes from earlier stories of similar figures dating back almost to ra.

              With billions of people already dead, you offer a single example which has one source. A mangled rewritten myth... a story, not a fact.

              Show me this jesus you talk about who came back from the dead.

              No god, no dead people coming back to life, and no jesus. What else have you got?

                  Secondly, as I use my real name here I would appreciate you call me by my name, perhaps even offering me the respect to capitalise it. smile
                  No biggie, just pointing that out.

                  I don't need lessons in the bible remember? I simply don't believe it. smile
                  I have faith in what I can confirm. My years as a religionist did not confirm anything other than the mind goes where it is most comfortable being.
                  Sure I thought it did at the time, in fact I probably would have put my life on the line for my beliefs then.

        Jesus-Savesposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        I have read those texts. We die with the natural body but we are raised with a spiritual body. This is because flesh and blood cannot inherit the heavenly Kingdom, therefore we have to be changed. But the question is, will this change take place immediately after we die, or is it when the Lord Jesus comes again from heaven with His angels. I would like to suggest that we remain in the grave until the Lord comes and then He will raise us up and at the same time transform our natural bodies to spiritual bodies. Please consider the following text too. 1 Corinthians 15:51-57
        Please let me know if you agree with what i have said. God Bless.
