Death, revival, judgment, resurrection and ascension are topics, today.  Also, there is more on the parable of chocolates.  A writer at “Yahoo! Answers Malaysia” using the ID “21” (Level 5 with 5,317 points, a member since February 7, 2011) posted the following first asked on Yahoo Answers United States:

God rose Jesus from the dead, The first man that rose from the dead. Were did Jesus body in up?

Did God take Jesus to set beside of Him as Stephen look and seen Jesus and God.

THE BATTLE AXE:  Unguarded Chocolates? (11/07/2013)—Usually, a thief looks all around before committing an act of offense; this is to avoid detection. However, because he fails to also look up and within, he goes forward as if GOD is not witness. Behavior  and conduct that are completely visible also have details and minor features that are invisible along with unintended, unseen consequences and lasting side-effects that only appear after time.  In the parable, the three children made no gift to their mother at the time their father shared.  The mere loss of candies worth only a dollar or two at most is not what upset the mother, and weakened the family bond.  There are a multitude of other issues.  Included are altering, contending against and quenching parental hopes; betrayal; collusion; conspiracy; defiance; lack of gratitude; neglect of filial duty; and rebellion.  The act of pilfering a goody was also an unofficial indictment against the parents.  There was implied condemnation, and unspoken accusations of favoritism, injustice, misdirection, neglect, rejection, selfishness, stinginess and unfairness.  Our selfish actions as children are also recorded against us in the Book of Life, and cannot be listed as “love” crimes.  Where childhood misbehavior does not become corrected and erased through healthy achievements, development and growth, these too must be expunged by the blood of the Lamb.

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,  Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:  To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:  And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.  For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.  When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?  And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:  and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.  And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.  And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;  Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.  Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey.  (Acts 1:  1-12, KJV)

“21”, here are a few points Christian believers trust have been given to mankind from GOD intended to help us understand death, revival and resurrection:

(1.)  A person may be revived from physical death (we also say, raised from the dead, returned from the dead, or restored to life).  Where this happens, raising the dead is like waking a person who is asleep.  Their being revived is a temporal event (does not last); and the person who was restored continues to live completing their condition as mortal (until they die again for the last time on earth).

(2.)  The Bible reports the sacred event of GOD supplying life again to the dead in a number of places:  the Prophet Elisha was used to raise a dead child to life again (2nd Kings 4:  32-37, KJV); Jesus was used to raise the daughter of Jairus (Mark 5:  35-43, KJV); life was restored to a widow’s son (Luke 7:  11-16, KJV); and Jesus called his friend Lazarus back to life from the grave (John 11:  1-44, KJV).

(3.)  Jesus was the first to demonstrate resurrection, where life is first restored to one who is dead, and they then ascend to heaven (we say, enter the celestial presence of GOD) as one who is alive having body and living form.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (4.)  The Bible explains that resurrection has to do with appearing before GOD for judgment.  A person’s body will be rejoined to their spirit and the qualities of their person they displayed at the time of their death.  There are two resurrections:  the first for those accepted, granted eternal life, and justified with GOD through Jesus Christ; the second for the wicked and those that will be destroyed, and never live again.  Just as we do in our courts here on earth, the accused are permitted to appear, know the specific charges, examine the evidence against them, and make their own answer and defense.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Even so, be it unto you according to your faith.  Jesus is coming.  Grow in grace.
