Subject: Abraham's Bosom
[b]Post of Bro. VDF: "Brethren, Please share God's Revelation on Abraham's bosom Lu:16:22: And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;"[/b]+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Luke:16:22: "And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into [color=blue][b]Abraham's bosom[/b][/color]: the rich man also died, and was buried;" =============================================== Brethren it was revealed to everyone of us that beggar/poor will inherit the kingdom of heaven as it is written in: 1 Samuel 2:8 "He raiseth up [[color=red]u][b]the poor [/b][/u][/color]out of the dust, and lifteth up [color=red][u][b]the beggar [/b][/u][/color]from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and [color=red][u][b]to make them inherit the throne of glory:[/b][/u][/color] for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them" Matthew 5:3 "[color=red][b]Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."[/b][/color] It is also written in 1Samuel 2:8 ".............and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill,.............." What is "dung" according to the word of God? Is this not the one written in: Philippians 3:8 "Yea doubtless, and [color=red][u][b]I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord[/b][/u][/color]: for whom I have suffered [color=red][u][b]the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,"[/b][/u][/color] Inversely, the rich is the opposite of the poor who counts all things as dung that are not pertaining to the things of the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, the beggar being mentioned in Luke 16:22 is a chosen of God who veers away from natural men thinking in following God and trust only the spritual word of God." And Abraham and his seeds have known by the brethren to be the one whom the Lord promised and made a covenant with, to be the recepients of the inheritance. How does "carried to the bosom" defined by the word of God? Are not these one written in: Numbers 11:12 "Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, [color=red][u][b]Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers?"[/b][/u][/color] Isaiah 40:11 "[color=red][u][b]He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom[/b][/u][/color], and shall gently lead those that are with young." With those foregoing verses Abraham's bosom signifies the kingdom of God-the second heaven-Paradise wherein church/chosen will wait the end of the world (completion of chosen number/count).And the brethren are aware that this is not a place but a state. And this is validated when our Lord Jesus Christ was about to die on the cross beside a thief who asked Him as written in: Luke 23:42 "And he said unto Jesus, [color=red][u][b]Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.[/b][/u][/color] And our Lord replied as written: Luke 23:43 "And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, [color=red][u][b]To day shalt thou be with me in paradise."[/b][/u][/color] It is our Lord Jesus Christ's kingdom-heaven(2nd)-paradise. Is that not a consolation and joy for those who follow the one true God(Jesus Christ) that when they die in Christ, they will be carried into Abraham's bosom.

Yes indeed Abrahamís bosom is what God promised him in His covenant or testament of salvation: Gen 17:7 And I will establish my covenant [b]between me and thee and thy seed after thee [/b]in their generations for an everlasting covenant, [b]to be a God unto thee[/b], and to thy seed after thee. How foolish indeed man to take this promise of God LITERALLY. For God is pointing to Himself as the SAVIOR. Father God speaking: Isa 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and [size=18]beside me [/size][b]there is no saviour[/b]. Did He not reveal this to Paul in: Gal 3:28 [b]There is neither Jew nor Greek[/b], there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And [b][size=18]if ye be Christ's[/size][/b], [b]then are ye Abraham's seed[/b], and heirs according to the promise. Simon Peter by divine revelation recognized JESUS as the CHRIST, not as many people see Him in their "religious sight" who is limited to being only the Son of God.
