THE CONFIRMED DESTINY OF ALL THE EARTH
Part 4: There Is No Death For The Righteous
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
Editors Note: Many people are dead and dying throughout the land and country. Also many of these the “Walking Dead” are in various churches. Are there more dead people in churches and in front of television sets watching False Prophets than in the Crack Houses, the Gambling Casinos and the fallen down Whore Houses throughout the land? Is there a greater Spiritual Death than a Physical Death? I looked over yonder and could see John living for everlasting he knew his right hand from his left hand. He also knew that God is a jealous God.
“Rosie Mae (she was alleged to be a good girl who didn’t run around at night) was angry and she did sin when she slapped her husband. However the Lamb’s Book awaits the righteous and the unrighteous as the wrath maybe later than sooner.”
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.
The world and its people often struggle with the very thought of dying and death. However to the righteous death has a meaning ingrained in Christ. Therefore as the Spirit leads us we hope to convey to the Brethren comfort, peace and joy as we journey throughout this topic.
Is there a death for the righteous? Just what is the Spiritual death and the physical death? Follow us now to the Gospel of John and scripture references for our discussion. At the 8th Division of John at verses 48-59 Jesus escapes being stoned as He reveals to the Jews that the Son of God is eternal. Our primary verse is 51.
John 8:51 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.”
Will all live forever if they follow Christ Jesus? How then is death “the confirmed destiny of the world?” Brethren the truth of God revealed in the Bible notes two kinds of death. There is the Spiritual death and the physical death. Those who embrace Christ Jesus our Savior and keep his laws will never suffer the spiritual death. (Also see John 5: 24).
However follow us over to the 11th Division of John for several more powerful scriptures that will add more understanding to what is meant by the spiritual death and the physical death. At this place John 11: 17-34 Jesus comforts Mary and Martha.
John 11: 25-26: “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me though he were dead, yet he shall live:”
“And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”
When Jesus speaks of the resurrection He means he is the giver of life. Well if you deny the resurrection do you deny life can you deny Jesus and not deny the resurrection? Is the resurrection and Christ denied by those that believe and teach that we (Gentiles and Jews that have accepted Christ) owe God a Tithe of 10%? We warn you and those that continue to preach and teach this false doctrine that we are to give but during New Testament times we give from the heart. Also we give money to the Church and not a Tithe of grains crops and livestock. We declare with all confidence as we continue to be led by the Spirit that TITHING is the biggest lie told by a multitude of False Prophets and Churches throughout the land and country.
Meanwhile where is the Spiritual death in this scripture? The Spiritual death is that of men in sin “though he be dead.” One is brought to Spiritual life saved from past sins, when he accepts and believes in Christ. Through obedience to the Gospel he becomes part of the liveth. However he must be faithful throughout his Christian journey. This person is then assured that he/she will never die.
Meanwhile the second death as previously noted in the subject of Part 3 of this series of Epistles is rendered to the unfaithful. They will be cast into the lake of fire prepared for the devil and his angels. This is the eternal death and a part of the spiritual death they carried with them to the grave. (Revelation 20: 14).
Remember Brethren that the Divinity of Christ the son of God has no past tense, nor future tense but always the present. He that believest in Christ can see Paradise. Those that see man see nothing.
