  1. Heres another comparison I'll add in where we can see a figure of Christ in Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; (The wood/ the Cross) In Abraham a figure Gen 22:2 Who offered up his only begotten son (His only begotten) Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Abraham accounting that God was able to raise him up , even **from the dead** (faith in the operation of God) And **from whence** also he received him **in a figure** (the law having shadow) **Him**God raised up the third day, (Christ Jesus) and **shewed him openly** (the resurrection from the dead) Or this way, Gen 22:7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but **where is the lamb** for a burnt offering? The law having **shadow of** good things to come, and not the very image ofthe things Gen 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. The law prophesied until John, the messenger sent before him to bear him witness John 1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And there it is, God has provided himself a lamb A picture of His only begotten Son upon whom was placed the wood Paul writes, Rom 8:2 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? God having preached before the gospel unto Abraham, as the promise was to Abraham and his seed And what was shown in a figure beforehand (by the ministry of the prophets) God did show openly (in His Son Jesus Christ) Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. From there into to those who belong to Christ (having the promise Spirit) Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. And as then, even so it is now Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
  2. Thank you Hidden Manna for pointing out these as well, I love these sorts of comparisons, they are even fun to find. God bless you
  3. Thanks for adding to the thread Origen, yes in respects to those things shown in Abraham regarding the covenants the word is found there, thanks for pointing that out for us God bless you
  4. Here is just a small snippet of one that I love which shows how God has spoken by the prophets The law prophesied, wherein even through Abraham (who was a prophet) used similititudes by him (and in whom we find an allegory) Just showing how one can validate the use of comparing spiritual things with spiritual in Abraham's things. Notice also that desiring to be under the law and not "hearing" borrows an allegory found in Abraham where the same is used. Abraham having two sons (by two women which represent the two covenants). God using women as the representives of the two. God having preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham while Hagar and Sarah represented the covenants. Heb 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Howso? Hosea 12:10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets. Of Abraham it says Gen 20:7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet And so in Abraham (a prophet) by which God had spoken multiplying visions and using similitudes, is the same affirmed by Paul in the two sons of the two women that belong to Abraham Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. Concerning which Paul goes on to expound on "the hearing of" the law more correctly as by the two Gal 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? And then immediately enters into the things of Abraham in the law Gal 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. Gal 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. Gal 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. I like following out Paul into these various things just because the words of God are awesome. Which are the same things Paul would speak of between them over and over again, "which things" So again, Gal 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. Which things are what ? Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory for these are the two covenants Which I believe are the same things by which they would compare between 1Cr 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. And knowing by the same God had spoken using similitudes by them. Just as there was a priest (of the most high) that met Abram (even before his name was changed to Abraham) who brought out to him bread and wine (which could also be understood to symbolize the body and blood of Christ beforehand even as that priest (as Hebrews points out) was made like unto the Son of God (Heb 7:3) just as the earthly shadows can serve unto the heavenly examples As the writer of Hebrews has said, Heb 7:15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, And one not made after the carnal commandment but after an indestructable life Whereas Jesus Christ being made a priest "forever" after the order of the very one that met Abram and who served him what could later be understood represents his body (as it even pertains to the NC) even as "the scripture foresees" Gal 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. The law having a shadow of the good things to come not the very image of things I'll add some as we go along when I have time to return to it, feel free to add so that we might be edified God bless you
  5. I am really interested in this topic and would love a thread where we can all share some of these, to prove them out and do so without arguing but just using scripture and showing something the best we can, using our proofs from scripture. Anyone have some cool ones? God bless you

    Forum gliche?

    Hi William, I was speaking to Hidden Manna, he mentioned that he cannot post on the forum all the sudden. He thought maybe it was a gliche since he could post and then all of the sudden for no apparent reason he couldnt post any longer but is locked out for whatever reason. I told him that I would bring this to the boards attention since he cannot do that for himself. Maybe you could help him. Thanks, God bless

    Love fulfills the law

    The law came by Moses, Grace and truth come by Christ Jesus, and Paul points out that sin shall not have dominion over us under his grace. Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. So I probably dont get why it should be considered acceptable that sin should have dominion over us under grace . Since we are not under law but under grace (under which sin would have no dominion) even as we are told not to let sin reign in our mortal body, that we should obey it in the lusts thereof. And also in respects to our walk he says, Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. So walk by one and you will not be fulfilling the other. Considering our walk again, he also says in Ephes 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. As we know God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. So if we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. Jesus said, John 8:12 I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. But we were in darkness sure even as it says here in Ephes 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light. Whereas in 1 John 1;6 he says, If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. No one can say they have not sinned for the scriptures state all have sinned, Paul says dont obey sin in your members so I cannot see how one can be without sin, but when it comes to grace sin shall not have dominion over us. As Jesus said in John 8:34 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. Paul also speaks of being servants of sin beginning in Romans 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. He also said, For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. You can see the progression from the one chapter into the next how he speaks and according to what like when he says, "I speak as a man" on these sorts of things. That would make for a decent topic by itself, thats one of my favorites

    A friend of mine is passing away.

    Sorry to hear of your loss Innerfire89, may the God of all comfort be with those the closest to him who are grieving his passing. God bless you
  10. If you rent that would still be (in reality) without property (at least any that actually belonged to you) and there are many who do and do so without any children (never having had them) or siblings (was an only child) and/or without parents where in their older years had passed away themselves. I would think thats pretty common, even in a sense equal to being homeless (being without property) and yet even without living relatives. I think the state gives aid to these. Maybe if we all had friends like Joseph Arimathea who buried the Lord in his ow new tomb. Not like the Lord needed it except for a few days (thanks Joseph, you can have it back, Im out of here)

    Thank you for your prayers for Justme

    This is awesome praise the LORD for his mercy, what a relief this must be for you. God richly bless you in Christ
  12. I think everyone dies without a home, naked we come into this world and naked we depart All you had left behind gets scattered to the winds at that time, unless you died broke (and they even found ways of profitting off your death in donated body sales
  13. It is expensive whichever way you chose, they sure get you coming and going dont they? Personally, I would chose a burial on my own property for myself and my loved ones but they dont allow that anymore. And probably because there is just so much more they can profit off you by way of death through your family as you depart this earth. There are quite a few cadaver scandals associated with donating your body also. You could try reading up on those, most wont. Google how a company made a fortune selling donated bodies. Its a business, just as Funeral homes have been caught not storing the bodies as they should leaving them out to rot or cramming more bodies than should be in a burial plot. Or cremating bodies in the same place as animals and you would never know if you were getting back the cremated body of your loved one (there was a story on this one somewhere) There just seems to be much profit for peoples body parts (whether you are alive, and they want to harvest your body parts for someone else who wants to live and willing to pay such as goes on in China) or whether fetuses which have died through an abortion or if you died of natural causes (much older) also. Funeral homes are businesses not clergy, just keep that in mind and they want a chunk of any that life insurance that was left the family if there is any. If clergy can be dishonest serving money, how much more with those who work among the physicaally dead (who cannot tell their stories)? Someone could say, "shop around", and I suppose that sounds terrible (I know) even as they try to make you feel as if that wrong to do at the time of a loved ones death but they are the ones profitting (and you are the one being squeezed and guilt tripped for their benefit not yours). I would far more prefer to be wrapped and laid in a hole in the ground (on family land) without all the creepiness of the body businesses. I would estatic if I could be buried that way (without them) heck we buried our animals and doesnt cost anything but a shovel and some dirt in reality. The whole funeral business is a scam.
