1 But now thus says the Lord , he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire…
What happens when we die?
Michael Disimino • Sermon • • 33 views
Physical Death [results from the curse of God Gen 3] when man, His creation, turned on Him by disobeying His command. This is called Sin and Sin is the cause of Death and Death is the result of Satans deception-this will be globle through out time and until the consummation of all things come to an end. Note, the bible is very clear the this world will end and we can certainly be living in the end times God has revealed to us through His Son Jesus. Anyhow, the result of Adam & Eves disobedence is Death-Since then, every human born on this earth will in-fact die because of Sin. Although, for some like Enoch seventh from Adam who after 365 years was caught up and He was no more-he did not experience death sort of like what will happen in the future called The Rapture. The Rapture will be an event only for God's choosen Church. those who will be caught up in the air [like Enoch] in the twinkling of an eye [a spilt second or less] this before the 7 year Tribulation period spoke by the prophet Daniel 9:24-27 note, there seems to be several different teachings about what happens at the tribulation and also what happens after a person dies? In-fact, the Bible has many teaching about the prophetic end times, however some teach these strange doctrines that are taught with teachers trying to force or fill in the gaps to come to what they believe is truth-eventhough the Bible didn't say this or that. note, thereis a warning about teaching what the bible just doesnt teach Rev 22:18 Another thing, if I'm going to learn how to study my bible faithfully, I must learn from those who stick to the srciptures for truth even when the bible doesnt make clear this or that. I must study by using srcipture to translate srcipture. Instead of, like those who are willing to conjure up their own imajenation to suit their itching ears. I must either look for what God has to say about something in one verse being explained in another to help me learn truth or be care when looking at others work on the topic I want to learn. Likewise, the book of Revelation has many pictures and symbols that are hard to understand. However, the O.T. also has these types of pictures and symbols likre in Revelation, but with explantions tied to them, which can be vailuable in understands the book of Revelation and other books in the bible. So, what happens right after death? Whats the very next things a Christian sees? Or the Non-Believer sees? This study I will try and narrow down what the bible acturally says about death. I do know from srcipture that there's an Intermediate State. This started right after Jesus's victory over death, starting with the theif on the cross who asked Jesus to remember him in His Kingdom-jesus replys, "you will be with me in Paradise" and that started the Intermiate state where Believes go directly to be where Jesus is. This has been going on for over 2000 years and will continue after the Rapture, durectly followed by the 7 year Tribulation period spoke by the Prophet Daniel 9:24-27 and this is just before the Second Coming of Jesus just at the end of the 7 year Tribulation period. These are but the few events that take place after our death. Resulting, right after we die or Raptured Church happens, our Soul is separated from the body and what we see depends on our free will choices made during our lifetime. Theres a prison awaiting those who refused Jesus as their savior and after that Judgment followed by being thrown in the Lake of Fire. Rev 20:14 did you know the not only are the non-saved thrown in the Lake of eternal fire, but also Hell is thrown into the Lakeof Fire! On the other hand, as I think about what happens to the believe, the Righteouse who recieved Jesus as their Savoir will at first spent some time with Jesus in Heaven, then after the end of the 1000 year region and Satan being released from a tempary prison during the 1000 years he will try and war with the saints once again, then Jesus will over come Satan and be cast into the Lake of Fire along with the demons and all those who refused Jesus's salvation plan- while they were here on earth living and having the free will to choose either Jesus or satan while here. One more thing, did you know that when you are baptized that is concidered the first resurrection or the first death-Baptism is the first resurrection or first Death-that means, the old man [self] has dies to sin and put on the Lord Jesus dying with him on the cross leaving this world and it evil desires. Did you know that?
The Good Place... Or is it?
Alexander Lundbohm (Zeek) • Sermon • • 8 views
The Good place is individualistic- you can spend as many “Jeremy Berimys” learning everything there is to know but as long as eternity is “you” focused it will never be the good place. Eventually you will always get bored and you will want out. Just like the characters in the show.. That is why immortality is often seen as a curse in the media. What makes Heaven so different is that it has nothing to do with you or me. It is all about Christ. It is all about worshipping Jesus forever and that will never get old. When we take the focus off of ourselves and put it on Jesus that is when we will be most content. No amount of learning, experiencing, or fun will ever stack up to an eternity in the Presence of Jesus.
