Is the dead really dead?

    To understand death, we first have to understand life. Life is the Bible states, And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2: 7 So, life is body + breath= a living soul.

    what then is death body (flesh) - breath ( the Holy Spirit ) = death. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:3 The body goes to dust and the Holy spirit goes back, because the Holy Spirit is God. James 2-26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
    Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: If the spirit is man living soul in heaven, then man existed before he was created. But, we know that's not true because scripture says man became a living soul. Job 14-12 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens [be] no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. 21His sons come to honour, and he knoweth [it] not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth [it] not of them.

    YES!!!!!!

        "Energy can neither be created or be destroyed,so what happens to theta energy which manifests us at the moment of death."
        death is the door to another dimension where one is a lot more alive than he s in the body.

        So what are you suggesting, that there is no re-incarnation,and that our energy goes on to a different realm?

          Both are possible.
          If you have any desires you will materialize yourself again, if you don't have desires you will stay with God.

            interesting...the Will to create is associated with passion (with shiva) and so when you transcend that, you will be all mind and no form.

              We all come from the source also called Shiva or Jevovah or Allah.
              Its our desires which make us materialize, man is god.

              Any desire will have pain involved with it.,we are in hell,our true home is the Light or god a state of absolute bliss.

                Will is the body, the Will to separate from the ALL. It provides us self-determination. But the body, in the way it is formed goes against the current of the ALL, and movement itself is painful.

                When we run, our bodies evolved to ease the pain by producing pleasure chemicals. SO they say, running makes you feel better. The serotonin is numbing the pain of your joints crashing onto your legs and the impact of the hard ground on your fragile system.

                To be alive is to feel pain because nerves are all about pain. Pain is just feedback. SO when you feel pain, you are in fact getting feedback and the thing to do is respond to remove the pain. To stop the feedback. But without transcendence, you will be lost in that pain and immobilized.

                And thanks for liking me, interesting what happens when you put a face to mouth. lol

                  ________________________________________________________
                  The Will is not the body. The will is of the mind. It is intention, power, and desire.

                  Serotonin is a compound (a mixture) that restricts blood vessels and acts as a neurotransmitter.
                  The neurotransmitter is released at the end of a nerve fiber when a nerve impulse comes across it, and the N.T. spreads across the gap and causes the transfer of the impulse to another nerve fiber.  Serotonin does not numb or ease pain. If anything it makes things felt more.

                    Deborah Sexton said "The Will is not the body. The will is of the mind. It is intention, power, and desire."

                    Will created the body.

                    It is at the very beginning of HaTorah. It is HaErets. The material form that desires to unite with Hashamayim, that started it all. Generating HaAwr and separating from Hachoshech creating dimension-- form.

                    (Are you familiar with the Kabbalah teaching that at the beginning, G-d moved, contracting and creating a vacuum. It is Luria's)

                    That is what I meant. But you know other people who have studied the esoteric know that. It is common knowledge in the theosophical circles.

                    Serotonin is the liquid between the synapses of nerve ends,the liquid instrument for transmitting .This liquid gets distorted with some drugs like magic mushroom which lead st hallucinations.

                  But, yes, a lot of the present mystic philosophies are believed to be handed down primarily from Shem and his kin, although some texts show bits of it as far back as Enoch. A change in the philosophy seems to happen at the flood, transitioning from the descendants of Anak (in greek myth Anakim) and Seth or angelic ( malak nephellim ) to the ba`al malak disbursement -and Shem begins. I am re-researching see if it links back.

            Re-incarnation was a part of Christian Philosophy but was abolished in order to try to make Christianity a unique philosophy and not a copy of Hinduism.

        then the Bible is not true, because it states; Ezekiel 18-20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

        I feel happy to join in on the conversation: We as people should examine our religion to get a clear  understanding of what the Bible really teach...  We are all being pursued by an enemy. The Bible calls death an enemy. For many years I was in disbelief about many things... But I begin praying, asking God to help me to come to know the truth...

        Believe me their is the truth.. But many of us are so blind that we can't see the truth.. Or either simply don't care and would rather debate, than gain accutate knowledge..The Bible clearly states if you ask God to help you seek the truth.. the truth will be given to you... When you lose a love one in death, the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. Many believe that our dead love ones goes to a spirit realm, or pass through a doorway to immortal life in paradise.. The Bible teaches us something quite different about the dead.. In considering the condition of the dead, we must remember that our original father, Adam, did not have a soul. He was a soul. God formed man - the soul- from the basic elements of earth breathed into him the breath of life... Genesis 2:7.. with that in mind..

        What is the force of life? It is a vital spark of life that God put into the lifeless body of Adam. This force was then sustained by the breathing process... Now what about the spirit? .. Psalm 146:4... That verse says of one who dies: His spirit goes out, meaning back to his ground.. in that day his thoughts do perish... The spirit departs from humans at death is the life force that originated with the creator..Psalm 36: 9;... When someone dies, the spirit (life force) ceases.. Remember when God explained this to Adam.. God said: In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground... for out of it you was taken. For dust you are to dust you will return... Gensis 3:19)  The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.. Death was not part of God's purpose for mankind...

          Let's pause for a moment to consider this: Nobody would need to be resurrected, or brought back to life, if an immortal soul survived death. In fact, it would be no kindness to resurrect someone like Lazarus back to imperfect life on earth if he had already passed on to a wonderful heavenly reward.. Actually the Bible never uses the expression immortal soul.' Instead, the Scriptures say that the sinning human soul does die.
          (Ezekiel 18:4,20)..

          We know that God can easily resurrect a person, because he is the Originator of life..... Jesus Christ  Who is God son said... The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. .Those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.. John 5: 28,29... Remember when Lazarus had died, Jesus Christ told his disciples: Lazarus has gone to rest, But I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep..John11:11, 14.... Martha, Lazarus sister understood that an immortal soul had departed from the body of Lazarus, which means he had ceased to exist...

I'm sure you read it ...  there are two roads,  one  leading to eternal life ... and one leading to destruction...  a broad and spacious road...  and a cramped and narrow road.. Many are on that broad and spacious road  to destruction: I won't ask what road you are on.... Keep searching:

                Actually it doesn't say there is one path to destruction or one road. It says broad is the way. The Strait Gate is the Middle Pillar. The Broad Way is the other Sefira. (Kabbalah)

                Matthew 7:13-14
                Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

                Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

            Our bodies will be resurrected too, as was Yahshuas.
            Your quoting the Bible, so..the Bible says when Yahshua was put to death, many came out of the grave. It was translated body but it meant their image. that is to say spirit.
            Moses was dead and his image was with Yahshua along with Elijah.
            When Yahshua/Elijah, or anyone brought people back to mortal life, it says their spirits returned.

            There is only one peraon that has been resurrected to eternal life..Yahshua.

            We will be in the first or second resurrection.
            So, those who came out of their graves were spirits, because they were not resurrected to eternal life nor to mundane life.

      Nonsense. What kind of new age pseudo spell is this: to understand death we must understand life?
      There is NO death in Life.
      The life you are referencing is eternal life, else a limited passing of life like a tree -which lives 1,000 years or more.
      When you reach that point, then you might say you know life or death.

      Can the dead express the things of life? Who can praise from the grave? How should anyone know those things if their brain is no longer processing information, but a mush of glucose and worms.
      Silliness and new age mysticism indeed.

      Rise above the Vedic mentality. Embrace the totality, fullness and purity of Life as Life sees you, not as you see life.
      unbelievable how string ba`al worship still is...

      Nonsense. You perceive a sensation that makes you believe in yourself and the by-product your Savior and Creator. But in truth, know neither. It would be better if you did not believe at all, and died, than to believe the way you do...

          Cecilia, I was merely expressing how 'potent' the mentality of such powerful believers is -less than 0.009 centimeters thick.

          The Baal mentality is very present in Christianity today -more so than it was in the time of Judaism. Sickening, really. The sickening part is they know there is no human expression in death -but claim through it they can understand life. Especially the Life already given yet do not understand or put into practice. In reality, what they practice, like most illusionists, is slight of hand trickery. Deceiving themselves and then attempting to woo others into that tent revival/circus act. This is why I said it would have been better if they never believed and died than to believe this way.

          I do, however, apologize for the harshness of tone with regard to my reply to that poster, but just had a conversation with someone who has this same mentality and calls themselves a minister of faith a spokesman of Creator and his Will.

          Livid is not the word.

        'It would be better if you did not believe at all, and died, than to believe the way you do.'  With respect, just who are you to tell someone what they can or can't believe? Just because you happen to believe in a compilation of stories made up thousands of years ago by a number of very old men doesn't mean you have the right to tell someone that they would be better off dead than not believe what you believe. This is the sort of extreme behaviour that starts wars. and you 'claim' to be a Christian?

          It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them

          Matthew 26.24 (betrayal)
          The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.

          James 2.19 ( ba`al mentality | pretending )
          You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.


          --so, yes it would be better for them to have never believed and been blameless because of that ignorance than to believe and live falsely. I am sorry such things upset you. But it is a harsh reality. Religion is killing them...

            Vishnu was the God of the South and then the Aryans invaded Indian ,occupied the North and they called the supreme entity Shiva.

            No one can say its copied, I wonder how you do as the Holy Vedas are considered as the most ancient spiritual text.

            When you say go over Vedic philosophy,that is not possible as is teaches enlightenment and there is no greater accomplishment for man than to gain
            god knowledge through enlightenment.

      I'm not sure why you stated, "If the spirit is man living soul in heaven, then man existed before he was created"???  God says after He created man from the dust, He breathed into him the breath of life.  God (the Holy Spirit) existed before man was created.

      Just as Jesus' spirit left His body when He died, He then raised Himself from the dead (for He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ): John 2:19-21 "Jesus answered them, 'Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.'  The Jews then said, 'It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?'  But He was speaking of the temple of His body."

      Rom 8:9 "However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.  If people don't think the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, then God is not the Father of Christ, for Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit: Luke 1:35 "The angel answered and said to her, 'The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.'"

      So, His spirit left His body; He raised Himself from the dead (bodily).  Likewise, our spirits leave our body (2 Cor 5:8), and at the appointed time He will raise us (bodily) from the dead (1 Thes 4:16; Rev 20:5-6) and 2 Cor 4:14 "We know that the one who brought the Lord Jesus back to life will also bring us back to life through Jesus. He will present us to God together with you."  Soul meets body, so-to-speak.

      Soul and spirit are tightly intertwined the Bible definitions. "Spirit" means "breath or blast of air" (God is spirit = John 4:24); likewise the scripture states, "[God] breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul". In my hub, "Soul, Spirit, Mind and Heart" I cover this (not to promote my hub, but because it takes study).

        So the the definition of the word spirit is "breath"

        And the definition of the word soul is "a being"

          The soul would be the mind.
          As for supernatural it is actually not. It is natural to the human being to exercise both along with the body. The word supernatural is the thing in question. No thing can supersede its nature. The true human nature is to be a united spirit-soul entity in a concentrated area called the body.

        soul on the other hand is greek concept and it is regarded as how we regard the psyche now.

        so in relation to the dead. are the dead really dead? yes. what happens to the soul? dunno. what happens to the spirit, well the spirit leaves the body (the breath/wind/strength/force) and becomes part of the forces of the universes....literally.

    The exhalation is called "agonal respiration".

    http://jme.bmj.com/content/28/3/164.abstract

    As a result of the cessation of breathing,  the body starts to decompose and lose weight and water.

    Hence the ancients say that the spirit left the body and returned to G-d. Which is of course just a way of saying life has left and returned to its source. It's a fair observation.

    Every philosopher, modern and past, wants to explain life vs. death. Only God can explain why life is removed from the physical body at a given time, that is, what determines a predestination of "date of death". It is up to us how well we take care of our physical bodies, especially those who wish to give birth to new life, as well. Some try to preserve dead tissue in laboratories to understand it. I know that the Word of God is true. In the new testament, 1Corinthians chapter 15, verses 47 through 53 tells of what happens to the body when asleep, although in the Greek, means dead, so that the flesh which is corrupt will become incorruptible as it is subject to the Law (meaning sin), but through His Son Jesus (second man) we are saved from eternal death with our new heavenly bodies. Something to think about!

      Look of emotion in all these answers; lot of justification for one's ideas.   The emotion, to me, anyway, indicates fear.   Fear of what?  Fear of dying obviously is one thing.  Fear of being wrong and laughed at another.   Those who have just perused the subject are simply coming from their conditioning.   Those who have examined it more closely, generally have a more open mind.   Those who believe unquestioningly in some holy book - and I mean unquestioningly - can rest easy, even if they are wrong.  Their belief provides solace.   There are some few, however, who do know the truth.   No, I didn't say, believe the truth.  I said KNOW the truth, and that can only come from something most of those who write above have no experience.    Of course, it's not too late for you to learn and - eventually - experience the KNOWING for youself...if your ego-conditioning can be laid aside and you're really willing to find out for yourself.

    We have all heard about the power of suggestion.  We know that there is some truth to it.

      We claim it when it suits us and deny it for the sake of arguement.

      Most teenagers have no concept of death until they are convinced that it will happen to them some day.

      The power of suggestion;  How strong is it ?

    The 'Tibetan Book of the Dead' has an interesting perspective. However, if you really want to be sure, you'd have to, well, you know - die!

    The only way the rest of us would know is if you somehow manage to come back or communicate with us and let us know!! This question really has no answer, only theories!!

      The Tibetan Book of the Dead is the Bomb! I would say it is very similar to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, in that there are guardians and instructions on what to say and what lights to pick and so on.

      But again, the myth aspect doesn't necessarily mean its just for the dead. Its a prep for death through living the transcendent life.

    Indra was among of the first sons (malak) of El, according to Vedic script before Shiva. There were others - outside and much older. From there came the Phoenician. It was Ba‘al Shamîm (Hadad), who was said to give enlightenment to the children of Shem -- the Semitic people. This is also the start of Amun in Egypt, later it would become Zeus in Greece.

    Either way, the philosophies are not supreme.
    Enlightenment is the path to Grace, yes, but grace is the supreme.

      Shiva is considered as the first enlightened human who spread god knowledge and the way to enlightenment to the rest of the world.

      Enlightened ones come from all over this planet and share the same philosophy.

      What do you mean by grace?
      What do you consider as supreme philosophy?

      Hindus philosophy believes reaching enlightenment or gaining moksha breaks the cycle of life and death,the ultimate aim of life.

        Not surprisingly, moksha is the same as salvation by faith to the Christian's. Unity with Ishvara (Creator) is attained by grace (mercy/favor) through meditation/faith and allows us to become Grace (superior to choice/consciousness --being free; Creators expression of free will; glory; adam). My take on it includes the human form -not necessarily by death but recreation through a living transformation. (i.e. the resurrected form of Y`shua).

              Our debate is centering on whether the Holy Vedas is supreme philosophy to which you said no grace is superior to enlightenment.

              "Enlightenment is the path to Grace, yes, but grace is the supreme"

              Then you say Grace IS salvation..
              But enlightenment is salvation so both are supreme philosophies the only difference being in the names or words, Grace, enlightenment,moksha,nirvana,salvation.

              Enlightenment in not the path to salvation , it is salvation.

                Seems we agree then.
                The only thing I challenge is the philosophies supremacy, as it is a human perspective of a divine image of the human versus the Pure perspective. That is greatly the reason and reason most humans do not achieve it and must die, else they live in continuous suffering of themselves. A seed that doesn't grow, dies. One that lives produces life and many more fruits, seeds and trees.

        Hmmm...again a recurring aspect of myth. The former mundane entity, goes through fire and becomes magical.

        It is almost instructional in a way. As Shiva represents the dual face of the creative force. It is essentially passion and the eye of Shiva is the eye of enlightenment! SO it is the Third Eye...the eye above the two waters.

          The third eye or inner eye is the spiritual eye" when thy eye be single" Jesus

          You see the light of God through this eye,when you keep concentrating on it you race up and down a tunnel to and fro from this light at incredible speeds.

          then comes what is called let go ,or give up to god.You let go and go into this light, basically die ad go into another dimension one of god, your true self or home, source of all things, the light.

            But you have to climb back down and talk to monkeys again and be a monkey again because otherwise you go insane.(or atleast people will think you're insane)

            In Kabbalah, the state of being stuck there is called Binah consciousness. When you go into endless light  (wisdom) and you gain understanding, you must go back down to the realm of action otherwise you'll be lost in that world. That world has different realities. In our reality, unless that "lightning speed" trip becomes actionable, it is pretty useless. It is easier to achieve
            knowledge. The challenge is live it in this world.

        To address your original concern: It is written that God knew us from the foundation of the world, for that is when all proceeded forth from the divine One, but, since God is eternal, we existed within God as Spirit, and only became material beings at the creation. In truth, we exist in God, and God exists in us, and it is the denial of man and his insistence on the illussion of free will which has led us to this day. There is but ONE will. The will of God!

          I agree with you on everything except Free Will. God did not want to control us, he wanted real chosen love from us, so we had to have free will. That's where we went wrong. We chose to love the flesh more than/instead of, God.
          If God's will was being done, life would be paradise. That is why we are to pray "God's will be done". His will for us is perfect will.
          By telling us to pray for his will, it shows that we are using our own will. Our will is why the world is in bad shape.
          God does not want some to be his and others not. But with free will, it is "whosoever will" our choice.
          We will all eventually go back to God because we came from him. It may take a few lifetimes.

    A Will: an object(s), item(s) representing the desire of a person holding assets or power, especially with regard to covenant.

    A Testimony: The elements of the Will in action.


    The Will of the Father & Testimony of Y`shua Moshiach is the Spirits evidence of those elements of the covenant (aka prophecy/revelation).

    Creation is fashioned, the Word goes forth to accomplish the Will (puts that creation into action). The testimony returns the evidence of the Will. If it does not return, it is cut off.

    In humans, the flow of life from spirit to body (including brain) is through the blood. blood is the life of the body -it is the imrah (transformation/command), if you will, creation in action.

      Hi James,

      You are so right about the corn and crows in your book.

      Like for instance, the very mention of anything Kabbalah attracts a Kelipot. It just wants to stick into anything that resembles knowledge and usurp it to exist.

      The best way to get it off your back is to just know its just a kelipot. If it's persistent, don't move.

    Or this:

    "Serotonin is one of dozens of neurotransmitters and is found in body tissues including the brain, blood, and the mucous membranes lining the stomach and digestive tract. In the past decade, research studies of serotonin have found that it plays an essential role in the regulation of sleep, appetite, temperature, blood vessel tone, secretion of certain hormones and in the perception of pain, thereby affecting a wide range of conditions, such as migraine headaches, depression and sleep disturbances. Because serotonin  helps keep 'pain gates' closed, a lack of it can make you feel more pain. Research indicates that the best way to elevate serotonin  levels is to stimulate the body to produce more serotonin."

    Ceci...

    Indeed, it is therefore necessary for the human body to express those elements --fully else be removed after a span of existence.

    As the text says: The word became flesh and dwelt among us.
    Why? To solidify the true and visible reflection of Creator --form a testimony. As is termed the 2nd Adam. So the 1st was like him. A testimony or living action of Creator. So all humans a reflection of that Will.

    And also as the text states: it is not what enters the eyes, ears or stomach that defile a man, but what comes out --is evident, reflected back that does. Hence the saying Living Testimonies. A living testimony has a body, without it, the evidence or proof cannot be seen or viewed (glory; honor).

    Death has no testimony, no evidence of glory; honor. The only attribute is given by men to men for honor and glory of their position or possessions --neither of which testifies of behalf of the Will. There is a lot more to this...
