Sin is like Conception & Birth?!
This idea in James 1:13-15, concerning sin, its conception, a “bringing forth” and finally “death” – which is best understood in the Greek to mean conceiving in the womb, as a seed planted in a warm welcomed spot, well nourished, raised up out of the womb into the open air as an unruly child, which then ends in “death,” is not so contrary to nature, as we may think.
God forbid! You say? Yet, this is exactly what is happening to us, our children and the animals in our depleted environment. Hosea seems to agree with this concept:”Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim [a favored & “fruitful” Church in Last Day]* shall BRING FORTH his CHILDREN to the MURDERER. Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts” (Hosea 9:13-14; *compare Gen.41:52 with Matt.21:43).
Though some may see this text as not in line with this theory of sin conceived in the womb and brought forth only to bring death, as very much “on a par” with child conception and birth, that then ends in death (sometime in this person’s life).
But let’s think on this.
Most of our children are not living to old age.
And, even if they were living to old age, they still die at the very limits of 120 years. Most of us would be happy to have our children live that long. However, we and our children are dying young with “the diseases of the Egyptians.”
Has not God promised His people that we would not die from these diseases? Egyptians were found to have many of the same diseases that we in modern America have today.
My dears, it is because of “sin” that we are bringing forth our “children to the murderer.”
Orthodox Jews maintained good health during the plagues. The peoples around them became jealous of their good health. Their lifestyle and Kosher foods kept them very healthy.
Society is eating the “unclean” that God has strictly forbidden. Such as the “swine” which the Last Day prophecy in Isaiah 66:15-17 tells us “… They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD,” when Jesus arrives to bring back His Own.
we are also consuming blood in meat. This is strictly forbidden, even in the New Testament. WHY?!
Well, certainly NOT because God is a meany and wants to make your life hard and miserable!
Scientist have discovered that there are many diseases brought forth from contact with blood — forget that we are eating it in bloody red steaks, contrary to Acts 15:20. Jewish Kosher meat is void of blood and looks grey in color, until spices are added to bring back flavor and color – such as corned beef.
Because of uncleanness, right before Jesus comes, bodies and minds will be filled with worms.
The judgment center gone, or deteriorated. A person’s spiritual condition would be void. Like Herod, some in the Last days will be eaten alive by worms, because the worms have no place to go for food and to quench their thirst, except those bodies prepared by the wicked for vermin habitats.
Finally, Jesus proclaims that when we have complete belief in Him, and complete faith in what God tells us, that we would then be among that number that will NOT see death in THIS life, as well as eternity.
Do you desire to live eternally (even if you see death here on Earth) but also that you can choose to live your life, so that it’s possible that you never die – even now?!
How would you like to bring your children up, so that they NEVER see death, so that you “shall [not] bring forth… children to the murderer”?
Jesus calls His children “the firstfruits unto God” in Revelation 14:4. Why are they called this? It is because the seed that the Son planted 6,000 ago in fertile soil, has finally brought forth a crop that grew up, blossomed, and brought forth fruit that would NEVER die.
The 144,000 are the firstfruits of this crop. The other fruits only brought forth more seed for Jesus to keep planting in the earth, that He has marked with gravestones (these are the fruits and seeds that never matured – they just kept on dying). The “murderer” Satan took their bodies.
Yet, these people will be as little shoots, popping up out of the ground when Jesus comes back for His harvest. They will need to “grow up as calves in the stall.” They will need to eat of the leaves of “the Tree of Life.”
It is only the 144,000 who will never taste of death.
So, when you study how to raise up your child to live eternally, then your babies (& even you) may have a fighting chance to NEVER see death!
We must pray for the 144,000. We must pray for ourselves and our children.
There must be a radical change in our thinking, in order that we understand AND believe those scriptures given to us regarding the promises of eternal life (even without dying)!
Enoch heard and believed.
Elijah was a man such as ourselves, and made many mistakes. Yet, he and Enoch GRASPED the concept of these promises. They are the ONLY 2 who did!
This is a RED ALERT signal that we must have faulty understanding regarding God and His promises and what He is trying to get across to us.
Here are some promises Jesus gave that prove we can LIVE forever, even starting NOW!
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep My saying, he shall NEVER see death. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep My saying, he shall NEVER taste of death?!”
NOTE: Jesus did not correct them, when they repeated what He said, but rephrased it in a different manner, and in the form of a question.
“Jesus said unto her [Martha], I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: AND whosoever lives and believes in Me shall NEVER die. Believe thou this?”
DO WE “believe thou this?” What Jesus had asked Martha?
You know, Martha never really did answer Jesus’ question – she sort of skirted around His question. In fact, she was very upset with Jesus’ for NOT being there for her brother. “If thou hadst been here,” she said, then “my brother had not died” (v.21).
Martha was too busy with her own hurt feelings to grasp the significance of Jesus’ words.
We are too wrapped up with our lives to hear what Jesus told us nearly 2,000 years ago!
The Old Testament also gives us encouragement NOT to die!
“Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye”
Now, this has a double meaning, but still applicable. It is sin that brings death – yet, it is our life “in Christ” that gives us our life back – even the promise of NEVER seeing death.
“Impossible,” you say? “NAY,” I say. For the lives of Enoch and Elijah have proven to us that the choice to NEVER die has always been on the table – but ONLY these two men have chosen it.
What about “John the Baptist” who came in “the spirit of Elijah” – did he have to die? Most likely not, because Elijah had not died. Yet discouragement took hold of John, when he languished in prison – a mistake that nearly killed “Elijah” (1 Kings 19).
ALSO, I’ll tell you a secret – (come close, so I can whisper it). The youngest apostle of Jesus’ 12, had a shot at never dying.
Let us hear Jesus’ words to nosy Peter:
“Peter seeing him [John] says to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus says to him, If I will that he [John] tarry till I come [& not die], what is that to thee? follow thou Me. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? This is the disciple which testifies of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true” (John 21:21-24).
This prophecy was NOT fulfilled by John, so everyone just naturally assumes that Jesus never meant them the way they heard Him. Really?
Though John had a shot at not dying, these words of Jesus’ have met a symbolic fulfillment, and will be fulfilled likewise in the 144,000.
John represents the covenant promises of “an everlasting priesthood” of Numbers 25:11-13, the priesthood of Jesus in Hebrews 7 and the priesthood of believers in Revelation 20:6, also in 1 Peter 2:5.
