Hello Patrick,

English words have subtle similarities and or difference. A trait has been scientifically defined and proven for decades as to its accuracy and meaning: traits are any characteristic or discernable feature that is permanent. Examples are: someone born with brown eyes will never have a natural colour change because that is the most dominant eye DNA trait, and another with cheerful outlook all his/her life has an optimistic personality trait in contrast to someone who is optimistic only occasionally. A less permanent or less dominant feature or characteristic is called a "state" quality, feature, or characteristic. The word attribute is not a scientific word, but is just a synonym for the words characteristic, feature or quality (describes someone or something). So, an attribute can be a state or a trait but never both. Examples of attributes: someone born with red hair is classified as red haired when young but will be in either the grey hair or white hair attribute category when old; someone who is energetic usually is throughout life even when retired and slowed down due to aging. So, no the two words are not the same

Is a trait and an attribute the same?

Jn 5:28 Those who have died with the seed of Christ and now lying in the graves will hear His voice ( the voice of the main Preacher of 1Th 4:16) and they will rise first because, the things of the flesh will no longer have power to draw them back.

James Njoku- Maybe 1 Peter Chapter 3: 17-22 will help you regarding John 5:28 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison those that had died before Christ was sacrificed on the cross was preached to by Christ after he was crucified while he was still yet in the tomb for those 3 days. They heard Christs voice. Hebrews 9:27-27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:---- you are making that verse harder than it is suppose to be. It means that after someone dies-you must be judged. Judgement time comes after the perishing of flesh. Although it does not come immediately after death. It comes on judgement day. I hope some of this has helped you Keep studying! Don 't give up. If you don 't understand something, pray for wisdom and knowledge from GOD...for all wisdom and knowledge comes from GOD. He is faithful. You will receive it in HIS time! Always be patient!!!! ALWAYS!

Death : Hell : and the Grave : Have no dominion in me. I have been set free from all . Sin : Sickness : and Disease : I have been delivered from . If I should die today : I know in whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him. I am saved : healed : delivered : kept in safety : and have soundness of mind. Praise God forever more !!!!

The downfall of mankind in the genesis had opened doors ways for darkness to trap the lives of believers in Christ but since jesus is the word that we hear and thus ours our resurrection from our limitations ie graves in life.stay blessed in jesus name
