4:8 Captivity captive?
The captivity that Emmanuel
led captive refers to
Emmanuel captured the things
which held us captive to the ordinary consciousness level; the things which
disallowed us obtaining and progressing in a relationship
with His and our Father.
Just as the burdens today
which we seek relief of, so also it was in ancient times:.Isaiah
46:1,2; Haggai 1:6. The devil
has many tricks to take us a step further
down at a time.
Christ's work is us:.Ephesians
2:10. He is leading captivity captive, as day by day we move further
the ways of the world.
5:6 How does one ensure that."no
This verse cautions us to
be aware of 'vain' words.(how?),
which are words that lead nowhere and really do nothing for you regarding
a relationship with God and a special reward

the ten commandments were not abolished? As a means of producing righteousness,
keeping the ten commandments, which was the cornerstone component
of the the ancient Mosaic Law, couldn't
reproduce the necessary spiritual character which entrained
eternal life. This was because the people did not have the heart necessary
for spiritual living in the physical and beyond. The operating frequency
of one just couldn't be harmonious with the other. Something more was needed
and this was provided in Christ.(Hebrews
came to reveal the Father.(John
the Father was love:.1John

The application of the
ten commandments as a prerequisite
to the Creator's approval of you is abolished. These Old Testament commandments
and the Mosaic Law that went with them had to do with the righteousness
of the people. Now, in the New Testament era,
it's the righteousness of Christ in a person and this given
as a gift that enables us to grow in the high consciousness character
of the Creator-Father. And, what does this produce in us?.Galatians
5:14. Without this, what good is anyone for eternity?.Matthew

only the highest and best for others, thus weakening and making it easier

The word 'rapture' means,
in the dictionary, 'a carrying away in the body or spirit'. The word does
not occur in the Bible.

There is no scripture for
the rapture theory, a supposed time before a supposed yet to occur 7 year
tribulation, a great tribulation which in fact fully happened in Emmanuel's
time with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70
A.D. by Roman armies under General Titus, causing 1,100,000 to be killed
and 97,000 taken captive. At that time this was a great tribulation and
so it would be a great tribulation at any time something such as this might
occur. In the so-called modern ages it has been even worse 1)
According to the rapture
theory, good folks will be changed to spirit and rise up out of their cars,
trucks, homes, what have you; the cars perhaps then crashing into and killing
some little old lady on the corner as it veers
off with no driver? Would God and His millions
of angels not been able to make it a peaceful transition if this was
to be so? Of
course. But if we're to be taken away from the evil to come.(Isaiah
will be like this:.Revelation
Was the tribulation in
70 A.D. only a smaller type
of a similar,
a maybe worse one, still to come? The evil madness of the world increases
today and will continue until it's changed. How?
And in the 'how' we see our part in bringing this kingdom of the Creator,
this, at present, invisible kingdom,
to the benefit of everyone, even those
who are at present engulfed

Will the 'special' people
of love get 'spirited away' or do they now live, move and have their being,
in their spirit.(Acts
17:28-31), as this is
where the kingdom of God is? The bad folks having made it through this
supposed horrible 'beginning of the end' rapture time of judgment yet to
come, are to further suffer the demonic philosophy, that of further
punishment in hell forever. The concocted

1:16 What does this scripture mean?
The word 'err' in the original
is 'deceive, seduce, to cause to stray, to lead astray, lead aside from
the right way'. Paul is saying not to be deceived regarding where all good
things come from and that is God, as verse 17 shows. In other words; do
not get so involved in the physical life in pursuing your goals when God
can cause them to easily
come to you.

carries on down to verse 38 as
First of all, note that some
were resurrected. It was this sure fact of resurrection that removed the
fear of death from others who went through severe trials here, such as
so many also which have been listed in the classic book Fox's
Book of Martyrs, that you can have free.
The sure fact of resurrection
gave those people way back then, great faith to leave their troublesome
low consciousness behind them and move toward God's
consciousness and the reward that overcoming
the lower for the higher brings. Why would one fear death when he was
sure he would be resurrected. Even today,
this is the case. One way to be sure:.2Timothy
1:9; 2Corinthians 3:3.
Why some die and some carry
on living for eternity is handled in the subject on death.
