Me: Okay, this may seem a little bit out there, but I was just thinking one time recently when I was riding in the car. I often run into conundrums and deep thoughts and such... here is one of them: If God knew Jeremiah before he was in his mother's womb,(conception) where was he? I know the body apart from the spirit is dead (but the spirit is still alive forever in either heaven or hell after death), but what about "life" before physical life-- the spirit? Since God is outside of time (being the Creator of it), did He just know Jeremiah in what we call the future, seeing Him, or did He know his spirit, but was just waiting until he would exist in the physical?
Nina Yahnke: I watched this Sid Roth episode of Jonathan Welton. Angels spoke with his mom and asked if she was willing to have another child because there was a baby wanting to be born during this time and he didn't want to wait any longer and God didn't want him to wait any longer...if she said no then he'd be born to someone else. She said yes. He is now the head of the group that we belong to.
Also, remember the story your mom tells of the older brother who wants time alone with the new baby. He goes in to talk to him and the baby monitor picks up "Remind me what Heaven's like, I don't remember."
Gaby Daniels: I imagine it's similar to Jesus pre-incarnate. We were in the Father before we were in ourselves, physically :) The spirit isn't a wispy thing either. I'm beginning to believe it has it's own 'fabric' or substance.
LaShelle Griffith: Larissa, I know God knew me before I was born, what my needs and my sisters needs would be so we would come to know about Him (God the Father and His Son). So I would say that our soul exists before our physical flesh that we have such a battle with does. Read less

His soul was full of troubles. That is, hurtfulness, pain, & sadness. That is where all the junk is from. the wounded soul. His life drew near to Sheol. It is the place of exile in a figurative sense... not just hell or the grave. Psalm 88 is the Soul chapter Read less

After looking at the strong's I translated Psalm 13:
1 Why do You Ignore me Y@hovah, Continually? Why do you conceal Your presence?
2 How long will I set my mind on advise from my soul, with anguish in my memory in the day; my enemy above me?
3 Pay attention and respond Y@hovah 'elohiym: Shine on my mental and spiritual faculties, or I will fall asleep in the realm of the dead;
4 Or my enemy will boast, "I have overcome"; My oppressor be glad when I slip.
5 But I am confident in Your goodness; my heart exalts in your victory.
6 I will sing to Y@hovah, because He has recompensed. Read less

Rough notes: I had a dream once that Jezebel and the Spirit of Witchcraft are work together very closly together. At the time, I didn't really know much about Jezebel. But just lately, I found that in 2 Kings 9:22 that Jezebel was majorly involved in witchcraft!
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23)
of the nations, Balaam
of false prophets
Pergamos Revelaton 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication ." Balaam wanted God to be angry with the people of Israel, so he advised Balak to get some of the most beautiful women in his kingdom to draw the men of Israel into unclean and idolatrous practices.
18And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write ; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
Thyatira 19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
20Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication , and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22Behold , I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24But unto you I say , and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak ; I will put upon you none other burden.
25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come * .
26And he that overcometh , and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers : even as I received of my Father.
28And I will give him the morning star.
29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Read less
