The power of the Word of God/Jesus Christ in the Old Testament

They had the same Word, that made them new creatures in Jesus Christ. New creatures in Jesus Christ were being born since the beginning. We did not ‘suddenly appear’ after Pentecost.

Made most plain by:

1King 17:21-24  And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried to Jehovah and said, Jehovah, my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again! And Jehovah heard the voice of Elijah, and the soul of the child came into him again, and he lived.   And Elijah took the child, and brought him down from the upper chamber into the house, and delivered him to his mother; and Elijah said, See, thy son lives.   And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of Jehovah in thy mouth is truth.

John 11:43-44  And having said this, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.   And the dead came forth, bound feet and hands with graveclothes, and his face was bound round with a handkerchief. Jesus says to them, Loose him and let him go.

Mark 5:36-43  But Jesus immediately , having heard the word spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not; only believe.  And he suffered no one to accompany him save Peter and James, and John the brother of James.  And he comes to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and sees the tumult, and people weeping and wailing greatly.   And entering in he says to them, Why do ye make a tumult and weep? the child has not died, but sleeps.   And they derided him. But he, having put them all out, takes with him the father of the child, and the mother, and those that were with him, and enters in where the child was lying.   And having laid hold of the hand of the child, he says to her, Talitha koumi, which is, interpreted, Damsel, I say to thee, Arise.   And immediately the damsel arose and walked, for she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with great astonishment.   And he charged them much that no one should know this; and he desired that something should be given her to eat.

We have new creatures in Jesus Christ who heard the gospel and were born again, whose physical bodies died. They were raised from the dead by the power of the Same Word of God. Yet God says of men –not new creatures in Jesus Christ:

Hebrews 9:27  And forasmuch as it is the portion of men once to die, and after this judgment;

No where do we read of pagans rising from the dead. God demonstrates the power of resurrection for us in our brethren, who had their physical bodies restored to them for a time again and whose physical bodies died again. When men rise to the judgment, they do not live again. They are forever in death just as we are forever in life.

Heaven and lake of fire will not be filled with identical creatures in two different places as the arminians/free willers pretend, much less identical creatures who ‘earned their place’ by free willed anything. Heaven is and will be filled with new creatures in Jesus Christ. The lake of fire will be filled with those not born again and who cannot hear, yet must obey the bands set on them by the Word of God.

Mark 4:23  If any one have ears to hear, let him hear.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
