Saul actually diluted the Scriptures by adding his own teachings which obscure the truth rather than reveal it. In other words, the Bible actually lost its concentration soon after Christ's resurrection, when Saul added the epistles like Romans, Hebrews, Thessalonians, ...., you name them! This was a way of suppressing Bible truth..........
......to increase its volume but increase not its truths, seen?
What Saul, Luke and Mark did to the Scriptures is like adding tobacco to marijuana to make a joint spliff, this suppresses the concentration of THC in ganjah, seen?
Let's meticulously look at what Jesus and Saul said about everlasting life.....
...normally we compare with or to, but this time I will compare Saul's teachings 'against' Christ's teachings............hahaha.....lol
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgement, but has passed from death into life.
1 Thess 5:9,10
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
It's vividly defined from these two Scriptures that these two teachers taught differently abou eternal life, seen?
What Jesus said conforms with what Solomon had said about a millennium before;
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man's all.....
Solomon and Jesus say that we must be righteous, do good, keep God's law, hear God's word, and be perfect like Jah...........
....but Saul confuses and deceives the people into thinking that Christ died for our sins. This deception is fulfillment of the prophecy written in Revelation about the wheat which would be in very short supplies!
........But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Please note that Jesus Christ was the first person to partake in this kind of resurrection, and all the saints of Jah that die must also do the same.
But everyone who missed the first one will definitely be resurrected in the second one.
.......all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth - those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
This is the second resurrection, for everyone who is not worthy to partake in the first one, seen?
compare these against the following
1 Thess 4:13-18
.........that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord I the air...
Hey, this is quite confusing!
Which resurrection is this, first or second?
Is this the same resurrection that Christ took part in?
Is this the kind of resurrection that everyone will take part in?
Would we be given wings like those of a bird that we might fly and meet Christ in the air?
It's really confusing and unclear!
Seems that when he wrote this, Saul was just comforting the hopeless with lies and fiction!
This was another fulfillment of prophecy( the barley would be in short supplies...........barley symbolizes the truths of Christ's resurrection)
Only the truth shall set us free!
