Actually, breath in Hebrew is נִשְׁמַ֣ת or "nis-mat"
Spirit is ר֣וּחַ or "ru-ah"

They are two different words in the original language.

Gen 1:27. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

to me this is like this

A lightbulb (Body)
Electricity (breath)
Light.   (living soul)

When the electricity is gone, what happens to the light? ceases to exist, not sleeping

When man ceases to breathe, what happens to the soul?  Also s=ceases to exist, not sleeping.

Sprit and breath are the same words.


Just my opinion, others will differ.

OT:5315 nephesh

Also translated "creature" in Genesis 1:20, which is its first use in the bible.

It's used 754 times in the Old Testament.

Religion & Theology / the Sabbath
« Last post by Stan on March 06, 2022, 07:50:30 AM »
Almost every group of people rested on the Seventh day of the week, Nepal returned to that is the national day of rest based on the old Hindu Calendar, The Inuit (Eskimos ) were recorded as keeping the same day of rest as the Jews,

Many Native American tribes' languages call the Seventh-day 'Rest and Refresh' day. In over 100 languages the word for the seventh day of the week is rest or Sabbath.

Those "scholars " who say it was a Jewish event are not real scholars at all.

Religion & Theology / Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?
« Last post by rstrats on August 30, 2021, 04:50:46 PM »
There are some folks who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with the resurrection taking place on the 1st day of the week. The Messiah said that He would be in the "heart of the earth" for 3 days and 3 nights (Matthew 12:40).   Of those who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, there are some who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb.  However, a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection allows for only 2 nights to be involved with the Messiah's time in the tomb.   To account for the lack of a 3rd night, there may be some of those mentioned above who try to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language. And that is the only issue of this topic, i.e., the commonality of saying that a daytime or a night time was forecast or said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred. I'm simply asking anyone who may fall in the above group of believers if they might provide actual examples/instances to support the belief of commonality.

And that "someone new" needs to be someone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period.

Curtains are inexpensive. Can anyone recommend? We want to buy a new replacement.

That would be an issue for a different topic.   Maybe you could start one?
