WHERE ARE THE WOMEN IN HEAVEN?
(Luke 20:27-33) Then came to him certain of the
Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,
Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a
wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife,
and raise up seed unto his brother. There were therefore seven brethren: and
the first took a wife, and died without children. And the second took her to
wife, and he died childless. And the third took her; and in like manner the
seven also: and they left no children, and died. Last of all the woman died
also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had
her to wife.
(Luke 20:34,35) And Jesus answering said unto them,
The children of this world [the unsaved (earth)]
marry [male], and are given in marriage [female]:
But they which shall be accounted worthy [Gk: deemed entirely
deserving] to obtain that world [the saved (heaven)],
and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry [male], nor
are given in marriage [female]:
(Gen 1:26,27) And God said, Let us make man [Heb: `adam]
in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the
fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;
male and female created he them
Commentary: “male and female created he them” = male
and female are two different types of thoughts contained in
one body, one wrapper, one flesh: conscious (male),
subconscious (female), and the superconscious (God - Spirit) who is not only
in the wrapper (body) but all around it permeating, saturating, everything.
One probable hypothesis might be that the angels from heaven who become
visible and appear to us on earth only in “male” form were created in
the image of God, sharing a commonality with Adam who was created in the
image of God only in “male” form. Thus the restoration
and return to heaven (the Garden of Eden in type) would restore
the woman back into the man. If the male and female designations represent
“thoughts,” then an identical duplicate of the woman’s thoughts could be
restored into all seven men. As perhaps a precursor to that
ultimate heavenly experience, I still retain many of the thoughts of the
women that I have been associated with. Don’t you?
(Gen 2:16-18) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of
every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that
thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. And the LORD God said, It is
not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet
[Heb: to surround, i.e. protect or aid] for him.
(Gen 2:21-24) And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon
Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up
the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from
man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said,
This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called
Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his
father and his mother, and shall cleave [Heb: cling or adhere: be
joined together] unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh
[“male and female created he them”].
(Luke 20:36) Neither can they die [1,2]
any more [i.e., the second death] [3-6]: for they are equal
unto the angels [7,8]; and are the children of God
[what is God? what is God’s seed?] [9-14], being the children of the
resurrection [what exactly is being resurrected? answer: the word of
God - in you].
(Rom 12:2) And be not conformed to [Gk: to the same
pattern of] this world: but be ye transformed [Gk:
“metamorphose”; changed, transfigured] by the renewing [Gk:
renovation /// restoration] of your mind, that ye may
prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
(2 Cor 10:5) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that
exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity
every thought to the obedience of Christ;
(Rev 2:11) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; He that overcometh [his own natural self (the
world)] shall not be hurt of the second death.
(Rev 20:6) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first
resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but
they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign
[as “kings and priests” Rev 1:6; 5:10] with him a thousand years.
(Rev 20:14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
(Rev 21:8) But the fearful, and unbelieving [“Whosoever is
fearful and afraid, let him return [to his home] and depart early from mount
Gilead” Judg 7:3], and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers,
and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the
lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
(Psa 8:4-6) What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and
the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a
little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and
honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
thou hast put all things under his feet:
(1 Cor 6:3) Know ye not that we shall judge angels?
how much more things that pertain to this life?
(John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
(John 1:14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.
(Luke 8:11) Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
(Jer 23:29) Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like
a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
(Heb 12:29) For our God is a consuming fire.
[Deut 4:24; 9:3]
(1 John 4:8) He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God
is love. [1 John 4:16]
