The death of the Christian

“Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his season.” Job 5:26 Suggested Further Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 Wait a little, beloved. In a few more years you and I shall be carried through the heavens on the wings of angels. When I die, the angels approach. I am on the wings of cherubs. Oh, how they bear me up—how swiftly and yet how softly. I have left mortality with all its pains. Oh, how rapid is my Continue Reading

Heaven and hell

“And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 8:11-12 Suggested Further Reading: Isaiah 46:8-13 “I will,” says man, and he never performs; “I shall,” says he, and he breaks his promise. But it is never so with God’s Continue Reading

GOD is everywhere, no man can escape His Presence

Amos 9:2, 3, 4, 6 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down: And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence: and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them: And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the Continue Reading

The bridgeless gulf

‘Beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.’ Luke 16:26 Suggested Further Reading: 2 Thessalonians 1:5–12 Heaven is rest, perfect rest—but there is no rest in hell; it is labour in the fire, but no ease, no peace, no sleep, no calm, no quiet; everlasting storm; eternal hurricane; unceasing tempest. In the Continue Reading

Live with Eternity’s Values in View

Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them. The evil days and years are the times of old age, affliction and death – the days described in the following verses [vs 1-7]. They are called evil because of being the last days of testing on earth, a time in which inventory must be taken, life’s values reconsidered, Continue Reading

10 Things This Huffington Post Writer Got Wrong About Hell

From Prophecy News Watch.Com It's easy to mudsling on the Internet. It's even easier when the topic is something as controversial as Hell. So as I pen this article, my hope is that my words would not seem frivolous. I have no desire to attract attention. Rather, I believe that when mistruths are promoted publicly, they must be dealt with publicly—with tact proportionate to the immense weight of the topic. On June 13, author Jon M. Continue Reading

To die in faith

Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith. Behold the epitaph of all those blessed saints who fell asleep before the coming of our Lord ! It matters nothing how else they died, whether of old age, or by violent means; this one point, in which they all agree, is the most worthy of record, “they all died in faith.” In faith they lived – it was their comfort, their guide, their motive, and their support; and in the same spiritual grace they Continue Reading

Enoch and Elijah Dwell in Heaven

Genesis 5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah. Heb. ‘chanowk’, initiated. Enoch was the only one mentioned as being godly in Seth’s line except Noah [Cp. 6:9; 7:1] He was a prophet [Jude 14]. He was translated by FAITH [Romans 10:17; Heb. 11:5]. His experience parallels that of Elijah [2 Ki. 2]. Both were taken to Heaven bodily without dying: both were prophets of judgment; both fought idolatry and Continue Reading

Familiar Spirits

Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? Should not the people seek to God for His revelation instead of seeking through the living to the dead? This makes it clear that so-called communications with the dead are not of God and should not be indulged in. - Dake A.R.B. page Continue Reading

Elijah and Immortality

1 Kings 17:21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again. [Dake A.R. Bible]. Without the scores of simple passages we now have in the Bible, Elijah knew more about the body, soul, and spirit than many today. To teach that the soul is not immortal or that the soul and body are the same and both go to the tomb at death is to Continue Reading
