...It will be.like a spirit.without the peculiar physical organization of flesh and blood and bones, veins and arteries and nerves.(1Corinthians 15:50).and it will live in the manner in which we conceive spirits to live; sustained, and exercising its powers, without waste, weariness, decay, or the necessity of having its powers recruited by food and sleep."

Comments from.Family New Testament Notes:."A natural body, a spiritual body. In the original Greek the word rendered "natural" is the adjective corresponding to the word rendered "soul" in verse 1Corinthians 15:45. In order better to understand the force of the quotation in that verse, we might render the present thus: It is sown a soul-body; it is raised a spirit-body: the word soul being used as it is in Genesis 2:7, to denote man in his present earthly state as inhabiting an animal body and subject to animal passions and wants; while the spiritual body will have no animal nature and be subject to no animal wants.".However, in that state of being, one is able to change his body. Emmanuel appeared in different states of being.
 


-Mark 11:13,14.Why did Emmanuel curse this fig tree? It seems out of character for a loving, compassionate person. Why did He not just bless it?
Emmanuel was a hard man:.Luke 19:15-27; Matthew 20:1-16.

Here he was hungry. And he was disappointed that this fig tree  which had leaves that he saw from far off, bore no fruit when he walked to it. It wasn't yet the time of season for it to have fruit. He was disappointed it had leaves only. He expected more, perhaps not thinking or knowing that wasn't the tree's time yet to bear fruit. Emmanuel knew he was here for one main purpose, to die for sin, to take it away forever. With this all encompassing purpose on His mind, he became somewhat perturbed that he came to what he thought was a fruit bearing tree only to be disappointed. We can see that He expects and demands much.

Spiritual persons are expected to exert.'flat out effort' to qualify for the highest position they could possibly get in His developing kingdom. Flat out effort because that's what gets them the highest reward they can get.

This website is to help you reach your highest reward. Some Christians fail to understand the power they have with Christ in them and consequently fail to use it.


-2Timothy 3:15.What does it mean."the scriptures can make you wise unto salvation through faith"?
Salvation is a process one enters into after having become saved. In this process we are Christ's workmanship.
   "Through faith".means one applies faith in all he does, one example being in trying to understand the bible.
 
-2Corinthians 13:5.How are we to."examine ourselves"? And what does it mean here where it talks of reprobates?
The words."examine".and."prove".in this scripture, respectively means."try".and."test".

The context of this scripture shows Paul dealing with those in this church in Corinth, Greece. Some of the congregation there were doubting that Christ was in Paul with the kind of power that they felt should be shown by someone who had Christ in them:.2Corinthians 13:3-9.

Basically it means to look at how you are living, how you are thinking, to see if it stacks up with the acceptance of Christ into your life. Example 1: You know all you do should works no ill to another.(Romans 13:10; 1John 4:8); but is this how daily living bears your life out? Example 2: One may know that he should grow in the grace and knowledge of Emmanuel the Christ.(2Peter 3:18); but is he taking steps toward this?

On the question about reprobates, answer is here.
 


-1Corinthians 4:5 Does this scripture mean my sins will be revealed?

No, not at all. They are forever covered by the blood of Emmanuel.

And if you have accepted Christ's nature of love into your heart and live now by love from your new heart.(Hebrews 8:10), your life will never again have anything to be ashamed of:.1Peter 3:16

His blood covered past sins and covers your present ones and any future ones too. He and the Father love you.and others, that much!

You don't want to continue in the ways of the ego that have caused you heartache in life, because you are now a person of love, but like Paul, the ego of us all hates change and doesn't want to give up.(Romans 7:5-25: 1Timothy 1:15). It is the impetus for the human level to reach higher levels of consciousness. The Creator had us come here with it as it has its purpose.

You will not be ashamed:.Romans 10:11. And 1Corinthians 4:5 is saying that there will be praise. No dread.

Hebrews 6:18 "That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge.(refuge from the world we created by knowing only the ego level of existence).to lay hold upon the hope set before us."

Hebrews 6:19 "Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast and which enters into that within the veil."

Notice it says the hope enters into that within the veil. What was the 'that' that was within the veil? One is now able to be in this place where the Creator resides, through meditation.
