man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven. Ref.
Scripture John 3:13
were all created as spirit beings long before the foundation of the world!
Scripture: John 3:1 ¶There
was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
people think Jesus is talking about being saved here.
2 The same came to Jesus
by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come
from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God
be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said
unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except
a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom
is just telling us we were once spirit beings, with celestial bodies, but later brought into this
earth age as human beings (flesh and blood persons) who must be born again
back into spirit bodies to enter His kingdom at His return or when we die;
which ever comes first.
or not, we will all be born again, back into our celestial bodies!
not talking about immorality of our souls here, but type of body.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him,
How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into
his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water (flesh)
and of the Spirit (back to spirit),
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of
the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said
unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where
it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence
it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and
said unto him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and
said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11 Verily, verily, I say
unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and
ye receive not our witness.
John 3:11 Verily, verily,
I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen;
and ye receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you
earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you
of heavenly things?
no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he
that came down from heaven, even the Son of
man which is in heaven.
all existed as spirit beings in heaven before being born here on earth
in these flesh and blood bodies but we must go back after this flesh life
ends, or we die the shadow of death talked about in the 23rd Psalm, which ever happens first.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy
Spirit, you accomplish both.
