The Life Is In The Blood

Leviticus 17:11-14

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

We are forbidden to eat blood because the blood is the life of a creature.

Is this equivalent to the soul?

If I can “pour out my soul,” does it mean that the soul inhabits the blood?

Soul And Spirit

John 4:24

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Humans have both a spirit and a soul.

According to the Bible it is possible to distinguish them.

Could it be as simple as the different states of matter: solid, liquid, gas and plasma?

Behemoth

Job 40:15-24

Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

If animals created on land on the 6th day were derived from progenitors created in the sea and air on the 5th day we would expect this to be evident.

It is.

It could form the basis of a classification system.

It does.

Water Of Gall

Deuteronomy 29:18-20

Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood; And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst: The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.

Water is the essence of free will. Water is inherently unstable. Water is the physical medium in which cause and effect are linked. Gall is defined in a variety of ways, but they represent cause and effect.

Unstable As Water

Genesis 49:3-4

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

Water is inherently unstable. Anything created from it will also be unstable.

That’s how science can be so disastrously wrong about human origins but still produce a marvel like the iPhone.

Chapter 1

In Chapter 1 we are introduced to Carlton Feathers, a procrastinator who has not registered for World Monetary Union or received his barcode tattoo.

We also learn that this is the fulfillment of an ancient Biblical prophecy.

The Wisdom Of Their Wise Men Shall Perish

Isaiah 29:13-16

Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

If science is right then there is no God.
Therefore there is no judgment for sin.
Therefore I can do whatever I want and have no guilt.
For some reason the logic doesn’t work.

Science Falsely So Called

1 Timothy 6:20-21

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. {The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.

Science is a belief system that is so ingrained in the people of our time that they mistakenly believe that they don’t believe it, it just is.

Truth Is Light, Darkness Is Evil

John 3:16-21

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

It is ironic that the period of history that brought us Galileo, Kepler and Newton is called “The Enlightenment.”

Ironic because this was when the human race took a headlong plunge into darkness.

What Is Free Will?

Deuteronomy 30:15-20

See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

God could have created a perfect creation from nothing, he didn’t.

He created a corrupted system which is temporary and bound for destruction.

Why? He did it In order to manifest free will.
