What Is the Resurrection ?

The Bible’s answer....

In the Bible, the word translated as “resurrection” comes from the Greek a·na?sta·sis, which means “raising up” or “standing up again.” A person who is resurrected is raised up from death and restored to life as the person he was before.—1 Corinthians 15:12, 13.

Although the word “resurrection” is not in the Hebrew Scriptures, often called the Old Testament, the teaching appears there. Through the prophet Hosea, for example, God promised: “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; from death I will recover them.”—Hosea 13:14; Job 14:13-15; Isaiah 26:19; Daniel 12:2, 13.

Sister Esther I copied those pictures for my collection - thanks.

Regarding the future resurrection, Unless these are informed that Jesus resurrected them, (John 6:40) we may have difficulty convincing those of other faiths. Some may claim that their God brought them back, and it won't be a picnic convincing them of the truth.

For instance, disciples of Ron L Hubbard's Scientology also believe they that once they have reached the state of 'clear', they will all come back after death. The Japanese and many African countries share belief in their ancestor afterlife.

My wife and I had many discussions with the latter, and were often successful when  reading to them the following scriptures:

Ex. 4:19 Moses was to return to Egypt because all who sought to kill him were dead.

Eccl. 9:4-6 Their hate and love die with them, which means; even if their parents promised to help them after their death, they cannot, because they are not able to hear or help them - Eccl. 3:19) 

Isa. 8:19 Talking to the dead offends Jehovah. He told the Israelites to talk to him.

Hello  Brother  @Colin Browne....

I've  big  problems  with  your  different  links  by  open :(

By  'Mustard grains.rtf'   -  I  could  read,  but  after,  the  site  not  would  go  away >>>>>>    All  my  open  window's  were  frozen...   I  had  to  go  off  -  or  the  keys,   Strg. - Alt  and  remove....   that  worked !

By  Electrum.docx,   more  bad....  my  'Avast  viruses - program'   had  blocked  it !  That's  not  so  nice.   I  don't  know  the  reason ?  Do  you  know  why ?  Thats  very  rare  by  my  laptop.  I'm  sorry  for  that....

Sorry to hear that sister. Anyhow, I've never had a virus during the past 30 years, and my Windows Defender gave me the all clear a few minutes ago. Before downloading any material, I use NORTON Safe site which is free to all users.

Few people these days use WORDPAD, which is probably the problem. One brother said that he could not read .DOCX which is why

I've uploaded the same file in .DOCX this time. Let me know when all is well.

Sister QE, I still don't know how to navigate at this website. You once offered to send a list of all the pages you work on, but I was too busy at the time. Can you please send them now so that I can save them to Internet explorer's favourites. Perhaps this will assist in visiting all and that I could become more active here.

ATTENTION! All who read the story of Nelson Mandela's first wife Evelyn please note:

            Part of the the former document went missing during the upload.

     This was likely due to it having been designed for presentation in pages.

  It has now been uploaded in web format. It now also includes all references. 

                                            Please read it again.

YES, I  know  that  from  TV  News....   But  I  will  look  later  your  link  about  that  all.  Thank  you  Brother  Colin :)      Bye  for  now  >>>>>>>>

Although we avoid involvement in worldly politics, we are allowed to read or listen to news broadcasts. In some cases, it strengthens our faith in JehovahÂ’s prophecies:

“And I saw three unclean inspired expressions that looked like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and they perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.”

        (Psalm 2; 76:12; Isa. 24:21, 22; Revelation 16:13,14; 17:2;19:19)

The website below tells about ‘Necklacing’ which was the cruel method of torturing and killing people by placing  petrol-soaked motor car tyres around their necks and setting these alight.

      I had quit the JW Open Club, so as not to be a cause for dissension …. which if I am not careful I can take over a conversation … as TTH ALLUDED to that, and he was correct.
      Under the circumstances, I feel if I do not comment, it would solve at least 3 points of concern.
      I have been thinking about this for several days and decided it would be appropriate to “belong” if I only commented if asked a question, etc.,and not post cartoons.
      Basically, the same rules at the Kingdom Hall, except I will be courteous to anyone that is courteous to me, except that for d’fd people, not to discuss any theocratic issue or “what’s going on”, etc., realizing it is a double edged sword that should cut both ways.
      With all that in mind, I again request approval to join the closed club mainly as an observer.
      The open club has evolved into a bat cave of crazy people.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.
