GOD CREATED GEORGOUS ORCHIDS, THESE SEEM TO BE LAUGHING
INCOMING EMAIL, RE: Subject: DO WE HAVE TO KEEP THE LAW?
Shalom Marilyn, thank you for taking the time to share your concerns. That is being thoughful.
I will go slow with you, that to address just one point at a time
First question for you, is Paul really an apostle of the Lord?
The Lord said there are only 12 apostles so Paul cannot possible be an apostle can he?
Revelation 21:14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
The Lord commanded His 12 apostles; do not go into the way of the Gentiles.
Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: "Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.
So who then claimed a special ministry to the gentiles? And is also not named as one of the Lord's apostles?
Again lets go slow, this to address only one talking point at time. Blessings
In 2Ti_3:16, Paul said, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness".
I believe that was written by the inspiration of God. Do you? Be careful. Mt. 12:37 says, "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."
Do you believe Luke? He wrote Acts and the gospel of Luke. In Acts 4:11,12, he said, "This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED."
We should be careful what we say. Mathew_12:37 says, "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."
In Acts 15:28,29, Luke said, "For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you NO GREATER BURDEN THAN THESE NECESSARY THINGS; 29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well."
In Acts 16:30,31, Luke wrote about the keeper of the prison awaking and saying, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house (oikos, a dwelling, by implication a family)." They didn't say to believe in Christ and keep the law.
Rahab and her family were saved when Jericho fell. Her house was on the north wall, and that part of the wall didn't fall. Everyone in the house was saved.
Paul wrote Romans, First Corinthians, Second Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, First Thessalonians, Second Thessalonians, First Timothy, Second Timothy, Titus and Philemon. Are all these to be thrown out?
Do you think this is not Scripture? In I Thess 4:16,17, Paul said, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
You believe John. He wrote Rev. 4:1. It says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter." Does that validate I Thess 4:16,17? Rev 5:9 tells us that people out of all nations make up that group.
Is this not Scripture? I Cor 15:51-54 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
You believe John. He also wrote about the second Rapture. Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
In Rev 7:14,15, John said, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God". Does this validate I Cor. 15:51-54? Rev. 7:9 tells us that the number of those participating in that Rapture is too large to be counted. Only the 144,000 Israelites can be counted.
Paul wrote "BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW SHALL NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED."
In Gal_3:24, Paul explained that "THE LAW WAS OUR SCHOOLMASTER TO BRING US UNTO CHRIST, THAT WE MIGHT BE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH."
In Gal_2:16, Paul said, "A MAN IS NOT JUSTIFIED BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW, BUT BY THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and NOT BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW: FOR BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW SHALL NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED."
In Rom_3:28, Paul said, "A MAN IS JUSTIFIED BY FAITH WITHOUT THE DEEDS OF THE LAW."
In Rom 10:9, Paul said, "IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED."
Who could think that one up if it wasn't true? To me, God had to be behind it.
In Rom_10:13, Paul said, "WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED."
That is the only way to be saved, and you don't believe it. How did you get saved?
In Act_4:12, Paul said, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED."
In Eph_2:8, Paul said, "BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God".
We don't know who wrote Hebrews. Heb_10:38 says, "Now the just shall live by FAITH: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him." Do you believe this?
In Rom_5:1, Paul said, "Therefore being justified by FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ".
In Gal_3:11, Paul said, "no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by FAITH."
In Gal_3:22, Paul said, "scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by FAITH of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe."
In Rom_1:17, Paul said, "as it is written, The just shall live by FAITH."
In Rom_3:27, Paul said, "Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of FAITH ."
In Rom_9:32, Paul said, "Wherefore? Because THEY SOUGHT IT NOT BY FAITH, BUT AS IT WERE BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW. FOR THEY STUMBLED AT THAT STUMBLINGSTIONE".
In Php_3:9, Paul said, "And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the FAITH of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith".
> > is Paul really an apostle of the Lord?
Yes. Did the 11 apostles spread the news of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles? Not much, but Paul sure did.
It looks like you seek to discredit Paul because he said, "Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." (Rom 10:4).
In Rom_11:13 Paul said, "I am the apostle of the Gentiles".
In 2Ti_1:11, Paul said, "I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles."
In 1Ti_2:7, Paul said, "I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity (aletheia, truth)."
In Rom_1:1, he said, "Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle".
In 2Co_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God".
In Gal_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead".
In Eph_1:1 he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
In Col_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God".
In 2Ti_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus"
In Tit_1:1, He said, "Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
In Eph_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God".
In Col_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God".
In 1Ti_1:1, he said, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope".
In 2Ti_1:11, Paul said, "Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
In Titus 1:1, he said, "Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness".
Do you want to throw all these out?
DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT JESUS SAID?
In Mat_11:13, Jesus said, "ALL THE PROPHETS AND THE LAW PROPHESIED UNTIL JOHN (i.e., John the Baptist)."
In Luk_16:16, Jesus said, "THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS WERE UNTIL JOHN: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it."
In Luke 5:23,24, Jesus said, "Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? 24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house."
DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT LUKE SAID ABOUT JESUS?
In Acts 13:38,39, Luke said, "Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man (i.e., Jesus) is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39 And by him ALL THAT BELIEVE ARE JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS, FROM WHICH YE COULD NOT BE JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW OF MOSES."
In Acts 15:24, Luke said, "certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, SUBVERTING (anaskeuazo, from G303 in the sense of reversal) YOUR SOULS, SAYING, YE MUST BE CIRCUMCISED, AND KEEP THE LAW: TO WHOM WE GAVE NO SUCH COMMANDMENT".
You believe in Christ, but you don't understand that you can now let loose of the law as a way to be saved. You could not be saved by the law. It didn't save even one person. Everyone was lost, for everyone had sinned. However, the Lord had planned a way they could be saved. He promised to send them a redeemer, and if they believed he would come, they were saved.
You already understand Isa 44:6, where we are told that the Redeemer, the YHWH of hosts, is God.
It says, "Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first (YHWH King of Israel), and I am the last (YHWH of hosts, the Redeemer); and beside me there is no God."
Now, believe what YHWH of hosts, the Redeemer, said in John 3:12-16: "If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
Did Paul agree with Jesus? In Rom 10:13, Paul said, "WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED."
In John 10:35, Jesus said, "the scripture cannot be broken".
What about these things Paul wrote?
1Tim_2:7 says, "Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity."
1Tim_1:1 says, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ".
2Tim_1:1 says, "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus".
> > The Lord said there are only 12 apostles so Paul cannot possible be an apostle can he?
I think Paul replaced Judas Iscariot as the 12th apostle. Otherwise, there could only be 11 names on the wall of New Jerusalem.
> > The Lord commanded His 12 apostles; do not go into the way of the Gentiles.
None of those did. That was left up to Paul.
> > Revelation 21:14 says, "Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb."
> > Who was the 12th?
Paul, Judas Iscariot's name will not be there. He is the son of perdition, the one who is lost.
In John 17:12, Jesus said, "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled."
Psa 41:9 was fulfilled. It says, "Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me."
THE 12 APOSTLES
1. Simon Peter (wrote Scripture)
2. James, son of Zebedee and older brother of John (wrote Scripture)
3. John, son of Zebedee (wrote Scripture)
4. Andrew, brother of Simon Peter
9. James, son of Alphaeus (wrote Scripture)
10. Simon the Zealot
11. Thaddaeus, Judas Lebbaeus, brother of James and Matthew
12. Paul (wrote Scripture)
Is Luke Scripture?
LUKE TOLD US WHAT HAPPENED TO SAUL/PAUL
Act 9:3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
Act_9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Act_9:8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.
Act_9:11 enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,
Act_9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, THE LORD, EVEN JESUS, THAT APPEARED UNTO THEE IN THE WAY AS THOU CAMEST, HATH SENT ME, THAT THOU MIGHTEST RECEIVE THY SIGHT, AND BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST."
THE HOLY GHOST CALLED SAUL
Act_13:2: "As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, SEPARATE ME BARNABAS AND SAUL FOR THE WORK WHEREUNTO I HAVE CALLED THEM."
THE HOLY GHOST SENT THEM FORTH
Act 13:4 So they, being SENT FORTH BY THE HOLY GHOST, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
Did Paul preach the truth?
YES. SAUL PROVED THAT JESUS IS CHRIST THE MESSIAH
Act_9:22 says, "Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, PROVING THAT THIS IS VERY CHRIST (Christos, the Messiah)."
LUKE SAID THAT SAUL PREACHED THAT ALL WHO BELIEVE IN CHRIST ARE JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS, "FROM WHICH YE COULD NOT BE JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW OF MOSES".
Act 13:38 says, "Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins".
Act 13:39 says, "And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses."
LUKE SAID THAT PAUL AND BARNABUS TURNED TO THE GENTILES
Act 13:46 says, "Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, WE TURN TO THE GENTILES."
Act 13:47 says, "FOR SO HATH THE LORD COMMANDED US, SAYING, I HAVE SET THEE TO BE A LIGHT OF THE GENTILES, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth".
Isa 42:6,7 says, "I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for A LIGHT OF THE GENTILES; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house."

I think the Second Advent will be on the first day of the Jubilee year. It will be announced on the previous Day of Atonement and start on Nisan 1, 5776, Sat. April 9, 2016 on the anniversary of the Resurrection of Jesus, Sun. April 9, 30 AD.
The Jubilee has to fall after a Sabbatic Year, which is 5775.
"Would also like to share that there is NO pre tribulation rapture event. That bogus notion is only of the false apostle Paul, who is the false apostle that the Lord spoke about in Revelation 2:2."
There are two Raptures. One is in Rev. 4:1 and 11:1. The last one is on the Day of God's Wrath, Rev 6:17, 7:9-14, 11:12. Agape
MY REPLY, RE: HIS "NO SAVED CHRISTIANS"
> > There are no saved Christians not one!
That's not true. I have proof that two Christian families are in Heaven now.
My husband, 87 years old, a Christian, died Dec 27, 2011. On April 2, 2012, he came to see me in his celestial body. When he left, he walked through the wall, clothing, shoes and all. Not only did he go to heaven himself, he had gotten with both his family and my family in Heaven. They were all Christians. They all made it to Heaven. I asked him if he was 30 or 33. He said, "33." I will make it to Heaven. I asked Ed if we could be together forever. He said, "Yes." Thank you Lord! I am waiting to be taken to Heaven in the First-Trump Rapture. It should take place when Satan and his fallen angels are cast out of heaven, somewhere around Mid-Trib.
I'm hoping for Ascension Day. This year, it is Thur. May 29 in both Eastern and Western Churches. Charles posted on Five-Doves that he dreamed that it would be on Thursday. It is our daughter's birthday too. Our son David's birthday is April 6, which was Crucifixion Day in 30 AD. Carol's birthday was the 2nd day of Pentecost in 30 AD.
According to the Torah Calendar (http://www.torahcalendar.com/Calendar.asp?YM=Y2014M2)"Thu, 29 May 2014 = 29th of Iyyar, 5774" Omer Day 40 is Sunday, May 25, Julian day 2,190,987.
However, the Torah Calendar has May 26 marked as Monday "Omer Day 41 Aliyah of Messiah Mark 16:19,20, Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:1-14 (Julian) 2,190,988." Do you know why they picked Monday, "Omer Day 41" instead of "Omer Day 40"?
In Acts 1:9-11, Luke said, "And when he (i.e., Jesus) had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (i.e., Moses and Elijah) stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
John 3:15,16 says, "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Please do not add anything to Scripture. You can just trust the Lord Jesus Christ, and go to Heaven. You do not need the Law for salvation, just to show what sin is.
However, I would be scared to death to take any of Paul's writings out of the Bible. That might dump...
Oh... That's too scary to even write.
Rev 22:18 "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."
According to John, there are two Raptures. One is in Rev. 4:1 and 11:1. The last one is on the Day of God's Wrath, Rev 6:17, 7:9-14, 11:12.
Are you taking out one Rapture, or both Raptures?
Concerning the First-Trump Rapture, Paul wrote:
1Th 4:16 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
Concerning the First-Trump Rapture, John wrote:
Rev 4:1 "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither".
Concerning the Last-Trump Rapture, Paul wrote:
1Co 15:51 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
Concerning the Last-Trump Rapture, John wrote:
Rev 6:17 "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"
Rev 7:9 "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands".
Rev 7:14 "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."
What will Christ think about your saying that
> > There are no saved Christians not one!
I know better.
You say you believe in Christ. Then what keeps you from being a Christian? All a Christian has to do is believe in Christ.
Joh 3:15-18 says, "That whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
Concerning Judas Iscariot, he had to be replaced.
In Acts 1:16-20, Luke said, "Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. 17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. 18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. 19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. 20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be DESOLATE, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let ANOTHER take."
Psa 69:25 says, "Let their habitation be DESOLATE; and let none dwell in their tents."
I think that "ANOTHER" was Paul. Agape
I goofed. Just before Jesus left, the 11 apostles were finally told to go into all the world, and they went. So in the end, all 12 apostles ended up preaching to the world.
Mar 16:9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
Mar 16:10 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
Mar 16:11 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
Mar 16:12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
Mar 16:13 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
Mar 16:14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mar 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Mar 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Luk 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
Luk 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Agape
