Genesis 1:27 states –
“So God created Mankind in His own image,
in The Image of God He created them;
male and female God created them.”
Does anything else display ’emotion’?
Some monkeys and apes smile. They’re the only animals that smile because they’re happy, like humans. Dolphins don’t smile. … Dogs are very honest, and you can clearly see if they’re happy through their eyes.
SIMILARITIES BETWEEN ORGANISMS—LIKE THOSE BETWEEN HUMANS AND APES—CANNOT BE USED TO PROVE EVOLUTION.
What can we do?
Try to learn what pleases The Lord.
So then, my friends, because of God’s great mercy to us I appeal to you: offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to His service and pleasing to Him.
This is the true worship that you should offer.
More than anything else, however, we want to please God, whether in our home here or There. Amen
2 Corinthians 5:9
If you plant in the field of your natural desires, from it you will gather the harvest of death; if you plant in the field of the Spirit, from The Spirit you will gather the harvest of eternal life.
What is the opposite of eternal life?
In the Book of Genesis 2:17 when The Most High God told the Man Adam that in the day he eats from the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil, Man will certainly die. He was telling Adam that he would lose his ‘life’.
And we at times wonder, do angel’s have age? What gender are they? Gender is an Earthly concept such as Age!
No, they do not!
Mark 16:5 answers this for us: “And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.”
Dear friends, the “young man” was actually an angel. Yes, Mark provides a window for us to peer into the angelic world. Angels can materialize in our dimension at will, and then disappear just as quickly and return to heaven. When they do appear, it is always in the form of men—never women as depicted in mythology, religion, and superstition!
As Mark indicates, although angels have existed for thousands of years, their appearance does not reflect their age. We grow older; they do not. Yet, like us, they wear clothes. In this case, “a long white garment.” Luke 24:4 calls them “shining garments.” Do they make their own clothing? Out of what do they make it? (These are mysterious questions we cannot answer at this time.)
Note how Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome were “affrighted” to see that angel in Mark 16:5; he very much resembled a man, and yet, something about his appearance made them afraid. Evidently, they knew it was an angel rather than an ordinary human being.
If we keep reading in Mark’s final chapter, we learn that the angel speaks in a human language—Hebrew?, Aramaic?, ?—that Jesus’ disciples can understand: “ And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.  But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.” Angels are extremely intelligent creatures.
Here is one final little piece of information about angels. While not stated in Mark, we learn from Matthew 28:1-8, the parallel passage, that one angel rolled away the gigantic stone from Jesus’ tomb. Thus, the women could enter the cave and find it empty. Angels have incredible strength!
When the Prophet Ezekiel says at Ezekiel 18:4:
Yet, if we look at what is called everlasting or eternal life, it is something quite different from life. Just as life has an opposite called death, everlasting life has an opposite as well.
The Second and final Death (Lake of Fire) is the opposite of Everlasting Life.
He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
Like paper thrown into a literal fire, it is burned up and ceases to be. So shall they who live serving other god’s cease to be in His presence.
Revelation 20:14 shows that Death along with Hell will be cast into The Lake of Fire so these two things will one day cease to exist; that is, go into nonexistence.
Complex, I know! But let us dig further:
what will remain for all humans ever born will be Everlasting Life or The Second Death (The Lake of Fire or No Longer Existing).
“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
