And Blavatsky's precepts is what they are using regarding spirit and by the way they were raised to understand soul & spirit, however this is not Judaic nor scientific reasoning, especially as you come to the time these things (processes) become revealed-exposed. All these replies keep resorting back to pagan cultures still have no relations to Judaic precepts. JUST ACCEPT there are 2 trains of thought, and we were trying to bring you out of the archaic age of forfeiting this one gift of life for sake of making your fantasy one in death. By chasing death as life you become opposition to creation and cause things like Jihaadist ideas of rewards in and through the portals of death. You become messengers of death and worshipers of death. sources: Jesus is the gate keeper with the keys to death and hades;-Revelations 1:18 And I hold the keys of death and Hades. But Rev 9:1 says that's the fallen star aka Lucifer. Rev 22:16 admits Jesus is the fallen star aka morning star=lucifer. Rev 9:11 (notice our focus is brought to 9:11 for a reason) They had as *king over them* *the angel of the Abyss*, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon. *Abaddon and Apollyon mean Destroyer. Remember Jesus (who Apollonias helped create) himself admited being the one coming to destroy not bring peace: (Matthew 10: 34-40.) Thomas Verse 16 "Perhaps people think that I have come to bring peace to theworld. They do not know that I have come to bring conflict to the earth: fire, sword, war. For five people will be in a house: It will be three against two, and two against three, father against son, and son against father, and they will stand 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.Does this sound like a savior to save the world or the Abbadon= (destroyer) to destroy the world? So 9:11 is a focus for you to recognize who the destroyer of the fabric of civilization. As in focus on the SOURCE OF THIS DEATH WORSHIP. Egyptian underworld teachings same as Greek death cultism regards false soul flying life in death. Jesus is partly based on a character who fled towards Egypt to learn this forbidden opposing teaching and renamed in Greek as the king of this death worship. No better Proof then their claimed own words: Apocryphon of James- "become seekers for death, like the dead who seek for life; for that which they seek is revealed to them. And what is there to trouble them? As for you, when you examine death it will teach you election. Verily I say unto you, none of those who fear death will be saved; for the kingdom of death belongs to those who put themselves to death!" Even though the scripture is clear: Jesus is the curse in chosing Death according to: Deuteronomy\Devarim: 30:19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day,That I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse;Therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your children. The Church teaches the curse when they say:"solution for mankind's dilemma lies in suffering, and through the portals of death" "Suffering Is Also God's Gift” - Pope John Paul II Angelus, October 13, 1996, Gemelli Hospital.
