If Adam had the breath of life breathed into him by God...and God created Eve from Adam. Then it's given that the breath of life was in the tissue of the rib from Adam that made Eve. So yes, the breath of life was indeed with Eve too. Because the rib contained living tissue from Adam, supported and made living by God's breath of life! I'm positive that ...

The word trinity defines God as being one God existing in three coequal, coeternal, consubstantial persons:God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit — three distinct persons sharing one essence (from Wikipedia) . The trinity is not in the bible. Comparing Revelation 7:17 which says, because the Lamb that is in the midst of the ...

For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7:17, KJV) Notice the similarity with Revelation 5:6, just two chapters earlier. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of ...

I see some well thought out answers, but I would think that the most likely answer is that the reference here is to baptism. Consider some parallel passages: 1 Peter 3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ ...

I believe this refers to giving oneself over to evil. To claim that good (God and His works) is actually evil is foolish and requires a wicked act of will to knowlingly exchange the truth (the most important truth in eternity) for a lie. To resolutely stick to that testimony is to invite God to turn you over to evil. Romans 1:28 (ESV): And since they did ...

(Greetings and welcome) - The Holy Spirit does not ‘wash’. We are specifically told what the Holy Spirit does do in John 16, and elsewhere, and in no place does it mention ‘washing’. However we are told what does wash … EPH 5:26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word And, in John, we are told what needs to be ...

Hebrews 9: 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! Heb 10: 19Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, 20by the new and living way that ...
