At a Bible Study and prayer meeting at our home last night the question came up where did these people go that are mentioned in Matthew so we read this verse. “Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.” (Matthew 27:51–53 NKJV)

The discussion was whether they went to heaven or not. One side that the Bible does not say they went to haven while the other side says it doesn’t say they didn’t. Therefore we have a believer who chooses to believe in the negative while another held the position they did. When we choose the negative we are saying God did not do it or God cannot. The positive said says he can do anything he wishes. Just a few minutes be

While working a book I am writing the Holy Spirit provided clues into the mystery of these risen bodies the why, and the where. The first clue is “The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.’” (Matthew 28:5-6 NIV) The next clue is, Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.” (John 20:17 NIV)

A third clue, “36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’ 37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38 He said to them, Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.” (Luke 24: 36-39 NIV) The final clue for this mystery is “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.” (1 Corinthians 15:54 KJV)

I have present the clues now that took place. Jesus is the first to be resurrected. God also provides evidence that Jesus’ resurrection of Jesus is fulfilled. Now consider this the body of many of these people were long dead and their bodies had decayed. Therefore to have a walking function body the corruptible put in the incorruption, a new body of immortality. Now is there a difference with this body and the answer is it two of the other clues Jesus goes to the Father. Jesus took them out of the grave and he takes them to where He goes. The final clue is that Jesus appears in the upper room. He does not enter through the door. This clue indicates that the interruptible body is capable of appearing and reappearing therefore it is capable of going to Heaven as Jesus did. There is no reason for changing these bodies to witness only. When we look at the clues we find the answer to the mystery.

I thank the Holy Spirit for revealing to me the clues to what my Faith believed.

 

The young people today you are addicted to their cell phones can easily be deceive and also have more difficult in make lasting long term relationships. They’re so many men and women that cannot seem to find the ‘one’ they would like to spend their life with.The problem is with the use of the cell phone being their source for communication. The reason is in the lack of eye contact.

People generally have a favorable opinion of someone who is on the same or similar wavelength as them. When trying to win the heart of someone we tend to look for similarities in the other person that are agreeable with our own. We need to read the wavelength of the other person and take appropriate approach. However, texting, emailing, and even phone conversation can be miss leading since you cannot associate the message with the physical behavior. So in essences you cannot fully determine if the other persons wavelengths are compatible with yours.

The element that is missing to interpret the relationship between two people is in eye movement and thoughts. Bingo! We need to observe eye movement to determine if in fact wavelengths are similar and a relationship can develop or not. This key factor is not present in texting, or emailing. There is a possibility in a video chat if the parties are sitting close enough to see eye movement.

Since this article is dealing with the notion of easy deception and why young people who use their cell phones to build relationships can be deceived. The Blinking of Eyes is a window to truth or lies. It is known that there is a relationship between blinking the eyes and lying. Blinking the eyes provides important information about the other person; specifically, it can tell you whether or not the person is telling the truth in response to your question. It is important to carefully observe the way the other person blinks and look for a pattern. This is also effective behavior to use when negotiating a deal. To conclude put the cell phone away and meet the person face to face if you wish to establish a relationship.

Everyone has weaknesses. You need to focus on improving your strengths rather than worrying about weaknesses. Your strength is where the Lord has provided is Might. Defining your strengths and sharpening them is the faster way to grow. It is here where you are in unity with the Lord. It is important to pre-establish your expertise that you can be absolutely greater than your opponent, and that opponent is the forces of evil. Don’t ever show your weakness. You have to assume that everyone around you is your potential enemy. When you display your weakness you open the hedge and let Satan in. “How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down this leaning wall, this tottering fence?” (Psalm 62:3 NIV)

Do not show your weaknesses at work, for those may desire to have your job. Not showing or letting them see your weaknesses also means you are seeing through your opponents’ weaknesses. Once you pull a bluff make sure you carry through. There are two cases when you look at your weaknesses. One is when you are aware of your weaknesses and are emotionally ready for them. The other case is when you are not aware of your own weaknesses. The important thing for a leader is to be aware of your own weaknesses and see through your opponent’s weaknesses. Rely on your strength that comes from the Almighty and worry not of your weakness.
