VIII. MAIN BODY:
Impossible came from the Greek word: "adunatos" meaning:
1. without strength, impotent, powerless, weakly, disabled
2. unable to be done, impossible
Several things are defined by the Bible to be "Impossible", these are:
1. It's impossible for men to save themselves
Matthew 19:26 (Amplified Bible)
19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said, With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.
Mark 10:27 (Amplified Bible)
10:27 Jesus glanced around at them and said, With men [it is] impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.
Luke 18:27 (Amplified Bible)
18:27 But He said, What is impossible with men is possible with God.
2. Impossible is also considered "impotent" in the Bible: Like it's "impossible" for a man crippled from birth to walk.
Acts 14:8 (Amplified Bible)
14:8 Now at Lystra a man sat who found it impossible to use his feet, for he was a cripple from birth and had never walked.
3. The Law is "impossible" to save us:
Romans 8:3 (Amplified Bible)
8:3 For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh [subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice],
4. Impossible is also considered "weak" in the faith, in the Bible: We bear the "impossibilities" of the weak as strong in the faith
Romans 15:1 (Amplified Bible)
15:1 WE WHO are strong [in our convictions and of robust faith] ought to bear with the failings and the frailties and the tender scruples of the weak; [we ought to help carry the doubts and qualms of others] and not to please ourselves.
