Hi and when you come back you need say where PARADISE is , then I will say where it is and why !!
Dan P , you cannot tell me you do NOT know.
Jesus said today you will be with me in paradise. Where Jesus was the thief was that day.
Study the bible and STOP listening to folks with an agenda. The OT saints are NOT in the center of the earth any longer Jesus took them to heaven with Him.
Hi and you NEVER gave and answer as to where PARADISE is , did you ?
That is my question !!
Is Paradise and Heaven…the same place?
Posted on March 11, 2011 by rickroehm
The Apostle Paul called Paradise…the third Heaven.
2 Cor 12:1-4… It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
There are three heavens taught in the Bible…
1. The physical universe…the sun…the moon…the stars…the planets…etc.
2. The atmospheric conditions..the sky…the firmaments, oxygen, stratosphere, etc.
3. Literal Heaven or the Third Heaven…where the souls of just men made perfect go when they die…
Paradise is where ever God is:
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Hi and because of 2 Cor 12:3 , most believers say that there are 3 HEAVENS !!
But I say that there are 4 HEAVENS , and here is why !!
In Eph 3:18 verse reads , " you fully GRASP with all the saints what (is ) the BRREADTH , and LENGTH , and DEPTH , and HEIGHT !!
And before God created the HEAVENS , where did God dwell with the creation of His Angels , and Jude 6 says when the Angels LEFT their ESTATE which is the 4th dimension !!
Dan P, nope there are only 3. The domain of the angels was the very same as where God was.
Jude 6 (NKJV)
6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
Their own abode was heaven.. Still only 3 !
So you figure Jesus lied in when HE said the thief would be in paradise with Him that day ? I don't !
Jesus didn't say that day, he said Today.
When is Today?
Isaiah 49:8 Thus says the LORD: "In an acceptable time I have heard You, and in the day of salvation I have helped You."
In 2 Corinthians 6:2 Paul explains, "Thus says the LORD: In an acceptable time I have heard You and in the day of salvation I have helped You.
"Behold, now is the accepted time, behold, now is the day of salvation."
Jesus' use of the term "Today" was in reference to it being a day of salvation, which was not just a single day.
Hebrews 4:7 Today, if you will hear His voice do not harden your hearts.
The term "Today" does not refer to a single day. Today is a day of salvation if you won't harden your heart.
Truly I say to you today you will be with me in paradise.
Cool. I just never thought of a tomb as being paradise.
Was the other man also in paradise with him?
Was the other man also resurrected with Jesus or did he have to stay in paradise?
What a funny name for a tomb.
A spirit without a body doesn't have a brain.
The brain is an integral part of the body.
