@fumanchu - Ah, I see now. Thank you. Quite an interesting insight.

@fumanchu - so your main point is it should be "lead" instead of "bring", right?

@fumanchu - Hm... "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so will lead through Jesus will God bring with him" - doesn't make any sense to me!

comment 1st John 2:12-14: little children, young men and fathers
(2) Indeed, if I were to write about a spiritual growth, I would naturally follow the "little children -> young men -> fathers" sequence - that would be clearer and more consistent with my thought. There would be no reason fro me to change that sequence. However, John chose another order of things. Why?

comment 1st John 2:12-14: little children, young men and fathers
(1) "These verses in 1 Jn. 2:12-14 allow us to understand that there is a correlation between how in the natural there is a growth process of children to young men to fathers" - Throughout your whole answer you are stressing this spiritual-growth progression: little children -> young men -> fathers, and you are completely ignoring the fact that John is, in fact, follows quite another sequence: little children -> fathers -> young men; and he does so twice! Do you have any explanation as to why John chose that sequence?

comment Rev 9:4: Do not hurt the non-existing grass?
So, what you are saying is that this verse should be rendered as something like "and they were told to hurt – not any grass of the earth, not any green thing, not any tree – but the people who have no seal...". I mean it is a kind of poetical way, so to say, to emphasize the locusts' main object of their pain-inflicting, right? Well, that makes perfect sense to me.

comment Rev 9:4: Do not hurt the non-existing grass?
However, even if we take the figurative approach, it still doesn't answer my question. My question was how come the locusts are told not to hurt the grass when the grass is already gone, be it literal grass or figurative.
