THE CONFIRMED DESTINY OF ALL THE EARTH
Editors Note: Beloved we bear witness that Christ Jesus is the answer to all manner of things that impact on the life and death of humankind. I came and you came to know many men that were good and wise. However those that have looked over to the conversion and are able to see now, yesterday and beyond can also see Jesus. Thus all things are rendered unto Him therefore Spiritual Healing comes and Physical Healing by His will. Peace be unto you and on this day we also remember our dearly beloved late father in the flesh William (Billy) Patton II.
Part 3: Twice In Death: Once In Paradise
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
I was born again and became a new creature unto God in Christ the year of our Lord 1996 1 January. Thus came the first death. We bear witness that the righteous shall rise again to Peace and Golden Paradise. Brethren just what is the sting of death? Spiritual death and blindness was defeated by my conversion to Christ and the Gospel.
Looking back on our previous scripture reference at Joshua and I Kings we now look at Paul writing to the Hebrews at the 9th Division of Hebrews beginning with the 11th verse and extending to the 28th verse. Paul writes about Christ as the perfect sacrifice for sin. Our primary verse is verse 27 however we will box this verse in with 26 and 28 to get a greater meaning about this scripture and “Twice in Death and Once In Paradise.”
Hebrews 9: 27: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”
In the verse prior to verse 27 we see the essence of Jesus and His sacrifice. This sacrifice and death was made only once this is the physical death. Thus the death and judgment of man will only be once. Therefore man is appointed to die only once and the judgment will come afterwards. However as not to contradict the title of this Epistle nor do we add to the Word but we also declare there is also a Spiritual death.
This death rests as a cruel slave collar around all that are lost and blind spiritually. However when the saints are born again and become a new creature in Christ they defeat the Spiritual death. Now look at the previous verse to gain more clarity. However we beg you to note that the Spiritual death is rendered to the unbelievers not to believers. Thus when one is redeemed in Christ he defeats the Spiritual death. Christ is the answer to Spiritual blindness and to be blind spiritually is a spiritual death. My conversion thus removed my spiritual blindness; I died in sin to be redeemed by Christ as I confessed Him as my Savior.
Hebrews 9: 26: “For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”
During the last weeks of the Jewish Dispensation we witnessed the death of Jesus. But as it is written fifty days after His death the Holy Spirit as promised came upon the Apostles. This also cancelled the Old and brought in the New Testament Dispensation. But unlike the old Levitical Priesthood Christ sacrificed himself. We also remind you that if during these times you believe that you owe God a Tithe which was enforced during the Old Testament Priesthood that Christ replaced you deny Christ and the resurrection.
Meanwhile we see for our direct purposes regarding our subject that the Holy Spirit is what guides the believers to accept Christ and the first death the spiritual death that renders one born again. Now look at our final verse that follows our primary scripture.
Hebrews 9: 28: “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”
Christ had only one sacrifice to offer. For the record the Old system required constant, daily and on-going sacrifices for sins. Thus another note to the wise that still struggle with the denial of Christ through an Old Testament Jewish Law on Tithing. Christ died once and for all the sins of humankind removing the need to atone for sins daily. EPISTLES ON GIVING IN THE CHURCH
Meanwhile we see that the sacrifice of Christ was for the sins of all of humankind not just the Jews (John 1: 1-29). Christ will not come back to make another sacrifice for sin. He will come back for those that have been faithful for their salvation. These are the people that will reap Peace and Golden Paradise.
