BROTHERS – SPIRITUAL AND BIOLOGICAL 

 October 4th, 2010 | Author: Douglas

There are two forms of brother/s. The commonly known one is the biological brother. The other brothers are spiritual. In belief and association, they are supposed to be brothers in truth, true love and true and sincere spiritual affection.

This seems petty, but in the period between two major WORLD WARS, surely the leaders of false religion had the privilege of travelling between countries and physically greeting and possibly hugging their counterparts there. Even after the SECOND WORLD WAR it is often seen that these religious leaders travel far and wide, live in luxurious conditions and “SHOW” great affection for one another. The same is experienced for the wealthy members in their congregations and the members of their and other religions in the other countries. When, however, the Second World War broke out, those same “brothers” were prepared to brutally destroy each other, or actually did so, while their false religious leaders condoned their deeds and even egged them on. They even prayed that their “children” were victorious, while they cowered out of the dangers of the war zones. Would that classify as truthful, loving and sincere affection. I THINK NOT!

Although the Bible often mentions biological brothers, spiritual brothers are considered far more important.

The Bible states that you must choose Jehovah God above your biological family. This I found impractical, unbelievable and unacceptable. I believed that my family were far too important to me, and I to them.

Fortunately, through experience I have learned once again that I must never doubt Jehovah God. He knows what He is talking about. Firstly, even if you have the “perfect” family, they cannot give you eternal life. Secondly, my biological parents, brothers and sisters whom I consider to be relatives and myself became separated from each other and eventually all of us led our own lives. Then my biological family, my children, went their own way.  My wife does not agree with my interpretations of the Bible, so I have decided that by living by Bible standards as best I can, I will convince her when she compares me to others. If Jehovah God really becomes your Heavenly Father, He will always be there for you, and He will actually be your Father and True Friend, all the time, and every minute of every day, into eternity. I now understand the difference!

Further comments would include the hate and division that often occurs between biological brothers, and families. Remember, Cain and Abel.

Please remember, there are many references to brothers in the Bible, and if you really desire to accurately know the Bible, you will find out when the spiritual brothers are spoken about.

Let us see what the Bible Scriptures below state about Brother/s:

Haggai 2:22

And I shall certainly overthrow the throne of kingdoms and annihilate the strength of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow [the] chariot and its riders, and [the] horses and their riders will certainly come down, each one by the sword of his brother.’” (Here would be meant biological, or spiritually false brothers, otherwise this Scripture would not be logical at all.)

Zechariah 14:13

“And it must occur in that day [that] confusion from Jehovah will become widespread among them; and they will actually grab hold, each one of the hand of his companion, and his hand will actually come up against the hand of his companion. (At Armageddon, this is going to happen worldwide simultaneously, until all Satan’s earthly allies have destroyed one another! This Scripture would make absolutely no sense if spiritual companions were being spoken about. Also the word “brother” is not used but the word “companion” as this makes for the action against male or female possible.)

Matthew 5:22

However, I say to YOU that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother will be accountable to the court of justice; but whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court; whereas whoever says, ‘You despicable fool!’ will be liable to the fiery Ge·hen´na. (Here is being spoken of about “spiritual” brothers, as the normal biological brother of a person that is not acceptable to Jehovah God due to his way of living, is going to be destroyed into eternity anyway.)

Mark 13:12

Furthermore, brother will deliver brother over to death, and a father a child, and children will rise up against parents and have them put to death; (Do you now know why you must choose Jehovah God above family? Also do you now know why there is an obvious difference between a “spiritual” brother and a biological brother? And this strengthens my interpretation that this is to occur at Armageddon when the unacceptable people annihilate each other. Due to political strife, humans are at present willingly “murdering” each other, so how much more would it be feasible when Jehovah God has humans used to annihilate other humans when it becomes necessary to protect His loved ones?)

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN SPIRITUAL AND BIOLOGICAL BROTHERS WHEN PERUSING THROUGH THE BIBLE!
