(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]:

1.      (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

a.      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?

2.      (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.

3.      (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].

1.      (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.      (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;

3.      (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.

4.      (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.

5.      (Rev 20:14)  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

6.      (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.

7.      (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:

8.      (1 Cor 6:3)  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

9.      (John 1:1)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

10.   (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.

11.   (Luke 8:11)  Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

12.   (Jer 23:29)  Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

13.   (Heb 12:29)  For our God is a consuming fire. [Deut 4:24; 9:3]

14.   (1 John 4:8)  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. [1 John 4:16]
