3-23-2013- BODY DIES- MAN LIVES ON INTO ETERNITY


JAMES 2: 26 = FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS, IS DEAD ALSO.


11 CORINTHIANS 5: 8 = WE ARE CONFIDENT, I SAY, AND WILLING RATHER TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY AND TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD.


"REMARKS"

IN THIS PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE, PAUL SHOWS US WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE BODY DIES, WE ARE PRESENT WITH THE LORD.

PARADISE IS THE PRESUMED DESTINATION OF BELIEVERS, WHILE HELL, IS THE OTHER OPTION FOR UN-BELIEVERS.


LUKE 23: 43 = AND JESUS SAID TO HIM, VERILY I SAY  TO YOU, TODAY SHALL YOU BE WITH ME IN PARADISE.


THIS PASSAGE IF TRUE AND WE KNOW ALL WORDS OF GOD, YAH'WEH, ARE TRUE AND IS NO LIE, THEN WE TOO, WHEN THE BODY DIES, WILL BE WITH THE LORD OUR GOD.


ECCLESIASTES 12: 7 = THEN SHALL THE DUST,(BODY), RETURN TO THE EARTH AS IT WAS: AND THE SPIRIT SHALL RETURN TO GOD, WHO GAVE IT.


THE BODY DIES, THE SPIRIT OF LIFE RETURNS TO GOD, YAH'WEH.

WE ARE ALL SPIRITS, IN EARTHEN BODIES.

WITHOUT THE BODY, WE ON EARTH, COULD NOT SEE YOU, AS A SPIRIT ALONE.


HEBREWS 12: 9 = FURTHERMORE, WE HAVE HAD FATHERS OF OUR FLESH WHICH CORRECTED US AND WE GAVE THEM REVERENCE: SHALL WE NOT MUCH RATHER BE IN SUBJECTION TO THE FATHER OF SPIRITS AND LIVE.


1 PETER 3: 19 = BY WHICH ALSO, HE, (JESUS), WENT AND PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS, (PEOPLE FROM THE DAYS OF NOAH), IN PRISON.


THE CONTINUATION OF THESE SCRIPTURES SHOW THAT GOD, YAH'WEH, IS OUR FATHER OF SPIRITS AND JESUS, YAH'SHUA, PREACHED THE GOSPEL TO THE SPIRITS IN PRISON, TO GIVE THEM ETERNAL LIFE.


1 CORINTHIANS 2: 11 = FOR WHAT MAN KNOWS THE THINGS OF A MAN, EXCEPT THE SPIRIT OF MAN, WHICH IS IN HIM? EVEN SO, THE THINGS OF GOD KNOWS NO MAN, BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.


WHAT IS BETTER?

TO LIVE AND FIGHT FOR A LIFE THAT IS SURROUNDED BY EVIL CONSTANTLY AND GROWING WORSE EVERYDAY, OR TO NOT FIGHT TO LIVE, WHEN FACED WITH A DASTARDLY DISEASE, OR CANCER, THAT CRIES OUT DEATH.

TO FIGHT AND GO THROUGH HORRENDOUS CHEMICAL WARFARE IN YOUR BODY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE FOR A FEW MORE YEARS, OR IN THE CASE OF A YOUNG PERSON, MAYBE SO BUT, FOR AN OLDER PERSON, I SAY, LET THE BODY DIE AND GO AND BE WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AS FOR ME, IF AND I PRAY NOT, BUT IF I GET SOME DEBILITATING AND DEATH INCURRING AILMENT, I, WITH GODS, YAH['WEHS, HELP, WILL JUST FIND ME A SPOT SOMEWHERE, LIKE IN THE DESERT, OR SOME FAR AWAY PLACE, AND DIE AND BE WITH THE LORD.


THE BODY IS USELESS AS FAR AS SPIRITUAL MATTERS GO AND IS ONLY NEEDFUL FOR THE SPIRIT TO BE RECOGNIZED. 

THAT IS WHY THE SCRIPTURES SAYS TO TEST THE SPIRITS, TO SEE IF THEY BE OF GOD.

SOMETIMES, SAYING SOMETHING AND DOING IT, AT THE TIME, MAY BE HARD TO DO, BUT WITH HOPE IN OUR HEARTS AND THE GRACE OF GOD, YAH'WEH AND THE FAITH IN JESUS, YAH'SHUA, WE INDEED DO HAVE HOPE.
