Q u e s t i o n s..A b o u t..S c r i p t u r e s

-Matthew 22:30 I understand fornication to mean 'no sex before marriage' and if you do, then its called fornication. I also understand 'marriage' to mean 'a wedding ceremony' and adultery to mean 'having sex with someone married'. Is this from the Bible?
   And, will we be able to enjoy sex in the Kingdom Of God?.Mark 12:25.
   And, can angels marry and reproduce in their human form?

Some understand Matthew 22:30 and Mark 12:25 as definitive information regarding a sexless Kingdom of God. Christ had taken all bad things upon Himself when He was nailed to the cross.

Sex is an expression of one's heartfelt feelings for another.(see 'Mating'). It's part of the highest form of expression we know, love and it's also part of the lowest, that of lust and hurt

There are many scriptures in the New Testament regarding how 'much more' Christ wants us to be blessed. Look them up. 

It says in these verses.(Matthew 22:30 and Mark 12:25).that we don't marry.(the original for the word 'marry' is 'to decide toward a definite end', for example: to decide that you'll live with a person whom you may be in love with). The scripture does not say that we cannot enjoy the pleasures of sex then. 

The Creator takes nothing away that is good.(Romans 11:29).from those who have learned what it means to love:.Ephesians 6:8 "Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man does, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free." Psalms 34:8 "O taste and see that the LORD is good. Blessed is the man that trusts in him." Psalms 145:9 "The LORD is good to all and his tender mercies are over all his works." 1John 2:8-11 "Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you, because the darkness is past and the true light now shines. He that says he is in the light and hates his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loves his brother abides in the light and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness and knows not where he's going, because that darkness has blinded his eyes." 1John 4:20 "If a man say, I love God and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?"

The Great Infinite Intelligence, the architect of the universe and all in it, only adds:.Luke 12:31,32; Lamentations 3:25 "The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.(or, wants to be as He is, because one is convinced that there is no other way to really be happy with potential, than by being loving. God knows love better than any of us:.1John 4:8,16)."

He wants our joy to always be full:.John 16:24; 1John 1:4

He too is that way. After He rose from the dead, Emmanuel could still enjoy food, fellowship, etc.:.Acts 10:41 "Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.".God is good

The Creator can work things out so good comes to you, as He worked out for Abraham. The lessons of even the Old Testament are for us today

Genesis 12th chapter tells us about Abraham and Lot.(the story of lot and his incestuous.offspring:.Genesis 19:30-38), nephew of Abraham:.Genesis 11:27.

Abraham was told by God to go to a new area:.Genesis 12:1,4,5. Abraham wanted company. So he took his nephew, Lot and his wife, who turned into a pillar of salt:.Genesis 19:12-26

A conflict developed between Lot.(Genesis 19:30-38).and Abraham's men:.Genesis 13:7. Abraham, being the generous peacemaker that he was, offered a solution of giving up half of what God had given him:.Genesis 12:7; 13:8,9. Abraham offered to take what was left and gave Lot the first choice. Abraham trusted God that whatever would be, would be. Mostly in his life Abraham would see God in things. 

Because God was with Abraham, this situation with Lot worked out better in the long run:.Genesis 13:14-17. It's important to know God has accepted you fully too and is with and in you.


-Matthew 22:30.I understand fornication to mean 'no sex before marriage' and if you do, then its called fornication. I also understand 'marriage' to mean 'a wedding ceremony' and adultery to mean 'having sex with someone married'. Is this from the Bible?
    And, will we be able to enjoy sex in the Kingdom Of God?.Mark 12:25.

We have been brought up to believe that fornication means 'no sex before marriage'. That is what religious people have believed.

See 'Fornication' for its meaning. See 'Marriage' for its meaning. See 'Adultery' for its meaning. 


-Can angels, when in human form, cohabit with humans and reproduce in their human form as it seems to indicate in Genesis 6:2?
-Matthew 24:12 What is the iniquity that shall abound?

Iniquity is lawlessness and unrighteousness. What New Testament or new covenant laws could Emmanuel have been referring to?.Matthew 22:36-40; 1John 2:6-11; 3:23; Hebrews 8:10.

Now to more deeply delve into the answer to this question, it is important to read on the subject of just what righteousness really is and to be aware of the second of the two great commandments as mentioned in Matthew 22 above. 

It soon becomes clear that the base of iniquity is SelfIshNess which causes care and concern for others to dwindle. Selfishness is apart from the way of love. 

Many people do not realize they have righteousness as a gift, a good reason then for not being selfish:.2Peter 1:7-9.

The main point being that selfishness.(concern with the self to the point of exclusion of actions of compassion toward others).kills the attitude of care and concern.


-Hebrews 2:9 What does it mean Emmanuel had to 'taste death for all of us'?

It was all part of the purpose the Father had for Emmanuel.
 


-Matthew 5:3 What does 'poor in spirit' mean?

An attitude of humility, as opposed to an attitude of being rich in spirit, that meaning, being pride filled, a 'me first' attitude, a self righteous manner, an individual not sensing a need for a relationship with God, with all that means including love for others.

A lot of people trust in money and have not yet reached the place in their existence on Earth where spiritual concerns supersede physical identifications:.Matthew 19:23.
...


-Matthew19:17 and Mark 10:18 say there are none that are good, only Creator-God. Surely, if God is in us, then we too are good.

Of course! Emmanuel was saying in effect, that apart from high consciousness, that is, being of those of the ordinary low consciousness, none are good:.Psalms 14:1-5.

And why is it that those of this ordinary consciousness lack the goodness that is typical of those of high consciousness?
 


-1John 2:15 What does it mean to."love not the world", and/or not be friendly with the world as it says in James 4:4 and 2Corinthians 6:17.

Good to have a look at the word 'world' first. Then realize it is the corruption that we are wise to escape:.2Peter 1:4. The ways of the mass mind of humanity are selfishness and this because of our egos. James 4:5 tells us what the world is that verse 4 is referring to. 

We are to instead be of a higher consciousness: 2Corinthians 7:1. If we could just master these 4 things, most of our problems would vanish.

Does the Creator want us to have nothing to do with those who are not Christian? Of course not! It's talking of the things that the 'world' does, the things that come out of the mass mind of humanity, which are by and large negative and hurtful and produce negative results in men and women's lives.

It's talking about greed and worldliness generally:.Matthew 6:24 "No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.(you can't be of higher and lower consciousness; you either live by love or live by selfishness; mammon is expending energy not for spiritual gain, but for greed of money, greed of gain and the things money will allow a person to do and purchase in maintaining one's life course; the principles of the world which can consume one while he strives to gain independence for selfish existence and remaining aloof of spiritual matters regarding his soul)."

Spiritual persons should have a much higher standard than that. Christians and other spiritual persons should be rich so they can be a light to the world, showing others how great it is to use what the Infinite Intelligence has designed for use so everyone can get what they want and need for life. Compare these world things.

Spiritual persons need to inspire those in the 'world'.(John 8:12), those who are still under the influence of what influences the minds of most of humanity. And, what is that? Persons who are not yet spiritual, generally have little effective hope:.Romans 5:2-5; Ephesians 1:18; Colossians 1:27; Titus 1:2; 3:7. That is why suicides and why many just cannot cope and virtually give up, becoming the walking 'dead'.

Creator-God and His promises for us all is where the hope of spiritually minded people resides:.Jeremiah 17:13 "..... the Lord, the fountain of living waters." Joel 3:16  ".....the Lord will be the hope of his people and the strength of the children of Israel." John 7:38.


-John 11:26 What did Emmanuel mean when He said we would never die?

The original Greek is."shall not die forever":.John 6:50-58. An individual may die, but if He has accepted Christ into his heart, he is guaranteed to live again. But, what about the rest?
   But, a person doesn't have to experience what we call death.
 


-Luke 20:35 and Mark 12:25 Is Emmanuel saying, that to be in His realm that we should not have a sexual partner? And, can angels marry and reproduce in their human form?

Emmanuel was making it clear that in having a partner for life on Earth is one thing, but in eternal life and to gain eternal life, this is not necessary. It's talking about those who view the physical life as the 'be all, end all', talking about people who do all they can to lock themselves into all they know, which can be very limited in scope. And, all the non thinkers seem to be in the know about is what they see and experience on Earth. To them this is all there must be, so 'let's make the best of it' they figure, 'let's get married and then we'll have security', etc. They are basically the ego motivated ones who fail to see far off:.Ecclesiastes 7:24; Lamentations 3:17. Because they fail to see far off, they are far off themselves:.Ephesians 2:13 "But now in Christ Jesus you who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ."

Once resurrected, relationships continue, but marriage.per se, is not part of the picture. Even though they can come back to the physical as Emmanuel himself did, the relationship necessary to produce another family will no longer be part of their picture. The time for human life as we know it is finished. But what about having the pleasure of sex?

In the realm of the kingdom of the Creator where all have been resurrected and there is no longer death, there will be relationships of course, but no need for marriage to provide the important solid foundation for bringing up children, as it's then a whole new world, a spiritual world, where the physical world is seen to be what it is, a spiritual world that was 'underneath' the spiritual and now gone.

Once in the spiritual realm all we'll see is spiritual, all are frequencies of vibrations of different configurations and the physical stuff was only what we called physical because of how we, when physical, were made.

We sensed solidity because of how we were made. We then saw physical life as birth time, growing up time, having friends, securing a partner, having children, thus starting another generation. We saw our children grow and eventually getting along on their own. We helped where we could and as time marched onward we grew along with our generation of experienced ones. We've seen some of them pass on and we felt this time is coming for us as well:.Ecclesiastes 3:1-12. But it could have been different if we had known.

-Genesis 2:8 What was the location of the Garden of Eden?

Comprised with.Easton's Bible Dictionary: It has been sought for in elevated and central regions, the heights of which would give rise to various rivers flowing off in different directions through lower grounds to their outlets:.Genesis 2:10-14. Such a region exists in the high lands of Armenia, west of Mount Ararat and 5,000 feet above the sea. Mount Ararat.(map).is in Turkey's eastern highlands and rises in two peaks; the highest, Great Ararat is 16,854 feet.(5137 meters).and is perpetually snow covered. According to the Old Testament, Noah's ark landed on Mount Ararat after the deluge:.Genesis 8:4.

Here, within a circle but a few miles in diameter, four large rivers rise:.Genesis 2:10-14. They were called Pison.(renamed to Phasis & also called the Halys), Gihon.(renamed to Araxes), Hiddekel.(renamed to Tigris).and the Euphrates.(the name not having been changed).

This elevated country, still beautiful and fertile, may have been the land of Eden and in its choicest portion, towards the east, the garden where man was placed.
