comment The word 'believe' in John 3:15-16
Hello, Jason, and welcome. The folks here at this site welcome your feedback and participation, and many even share your views; however, we want to stick as close to the text as possible. So when you connect the dots, help us to see how you do it. Just because you learned how to understand the Bible does not mean that we can see the same dots. Also please hyperlink your verses, and please feel free to consult other authorities to back up your views. For example, in this posting can you connect believing in Jesus with believing in the "Word" of God as one and the same? Can you connect the dots?

comment “Spiritual Enlightenment” in John 7:17
@ScottS - John 7:18 speaks of those who teach to seek their own glory. John the Baptist stated it well: "He must increase (speaking of Christ), but I must decrease."

comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
@ScottS - Scott, the proposition is very simple, and there is no need to complicate the core issue: when the Lord is enforcing the rules, the punishment is quick. When man enforces the same rules, the punishment is not always quick.

comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
"Surely will die" (agency of the Lord) is immediate—the Lord enforces his command with immediacy; and "Surely shall be put to death" (agency of man) is intermediate. Thus the tendency of man which obeys, delays, or ignores the Lord’s command. (Your explanations focus on examples concerning this latter situation.) In other words, whenever the disobedience was enforced by the Lord, the expectation of death was immediate and certain from the Lord, and so the warning, “Surely will die.” With man, it was different. I modified my posting to clarify this nuance with supporting evidence. Thx

You misspelled judgment as judgement. :)

comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
Scott - the verses you cited (to disprove my assertions) do not contain the infinitive absolute. That is, what I was showing in my verse citations from the Hebrew Bible were those that contained the infinitive absolute (translated: "surely") in tandem with the verb to die, which therefore indicated immediate/imminent death. The verses you cited do not match that criteria of the infinitive absolute in tandem with מֹות as found in Gen 2:15. I hope that helps. v/r, Joseph

comment The original form(s) of Isaiah 2:2-4 // Micah 4:1-3
The source is Isaiah 1:1 and Micah 1:1, which relate that BOTH prophets ministered during the time of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah (i.e., the southern Kingdom in Jerusalem). In other words, the time span of all three kings was no less than 20 years; it would appear therefore that Isaiah and Micah were contemporaries in the same geographical location ministering to the same kings in Jerusalem at the same time (some 20+ years).

comment The original form(s) of Isaiah 2:2-4 // Micah 4:1-3
Would you consider the possibility that Isaiah and Micah personally had known one another? In other words, is there the possibility that one may have had direct, personal influence on the other (or vice-versa)?

I take that as an immanent warning. :)

comment In Rev 19:16, why is the Name on the Word's thigh and robe?
Yes - Ps 45:3 comes into view with Ex 32:27. In other words, the Word of God is the sword (of the Spirit). His own identity on his own thigh is his "sword."
