Bible Truths(For Students of the Bible /Understanding What We Read)What Is Man (#2)There is another verse that might cause some question's to come into our mind's. I wouldlike to point out that there are times in the bible that the word soul and life and breath canbe used interchangeable. The verse we are about to look at now is one of those times, nowjust listen this verse is in your bible you can read along with us if you like. Genesis 35:18speaking of Rachel "And it came to pass as her soul was in departing [for she died] that shecalled his name Ben-Oni but his father called him Benjamin." Please note the next verseAnd Rachel died and was buried in the way to Ephrath which is in Bethlehem. Please lookif you will the bible tells us as her soul was departing (For she died). What was departing?Was it not her life or her breath? For she Rachel, died. No where in this passage can youfind that she went anywhere just that she died. Her life is all the left her and that was notan intelligent part of her for we are told in Psa. 146:4, "His breath goeth forth he returnethto his earth in that very day his thoughts' perish." The bible just said for she died. It neversaid she went anywhere. Just that she died and that they buried her. Just as it was declaredto man in the beginning if he ate of the forbidden fruit. For the Almighty said dust thouart unto dust shalt thou return Psa.33: 18-19, "Behold the eye of the Lord is upon themthat fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy To deliver their soul from death, andkeep them alive in famine." here again we would point out if the soul were immortal whywould hpress them hard to your pastors. If by nature the soul was immortal why would he need tokeep them alive in famine? Look at this verse found in Genesis 46:18 "These are the sonsof Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and she bare unto Jacob, even sixteensouls." Verse 22 "and these are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the soulswere fourteen." Now think friend were these souls born unto Jacob immortal? Were theyever immortal? If so when did they become immortal? How could they ever be begotten?For sure they had a mortal dad. They were mortal as well. We find in Exodus 1:5 And all thesouls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt alreadyWere these Souls immortal? we turn to Exodus 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavenedbread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eatethleavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off." - Cut offsignifies a violent death, such as being stoned to death, or beheaded, or in some form ofpunished. In the book of Leviticus there are many places we find that a soul can do things,hear, see, bathe speak with their lips, many things we are told that a soul can do. It can alsobe killed. For one thing is for sure God had told the dust made creature if he ate of theforbidden fruit that he would die. To make statements without proof is only talking to thewind and it means nothing. Do we have the proof? (to be cont)e have to deliver their soul from death? These are fair questions and you shouldSteve Ryanb.ryanl@juno.com2nd Advent Christian Church405-637-2323
