“The Funeral – 303 [Death]”…Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 15:26) The ‘last’ enemy = that shall be ‘destroyed’ = is ‘Death’.
Continuing this discussion… it is my hope that you have been looking at what God, the God of the Bible says about… ‘your’ earthly end. As previously said, “One cannot live properly, till they are ready to die!” Will you ever have to say, “I wish I could have settled that matter before?” Is there someone you are ‘not right’ with… before Christ Jesus; and you have set aside, because you did not want to deal with… ‘Those Issues’? A clear conscience will ‘allow’ this and ‘not allow’, the fear of death to consume you.
*** (2Corinthians 8:21) providing for = honest things, = not ‘only’ = before the Lord, = but also = before men. [Matthew 5:23-24]
*** (1Timothy 1:19) holding faith = and = a good conscience, = which some = have put away = and = made ‘shipwreck’ = as to faith. [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
Perhaps for a ‘moment’… step back in your mind and visit how you felt during the “9-11” terrorist attack on the United States. Churches were filled to overflowing, with unbelievers, thinking the end of days, was upon us. For the over 3,000 killed and their remaining family members, this ‘terror’ lives with most. Only when one; has the assurance of “Eternal Life”; can they overcome such a tragedy. Once again, you cannot live properly, till you have made peace with… “Peace with God!”
*** (1Timothy 5:24-25) Some men's sins = are open = beforehand, = going before = to judgment. = And = some = they ‘also’ = follow after. [Numbers 32:23]
(1Tim 5:25) Likewise also = the good works of some are manifest beforehand, = and = those who are otherwise = cannot be hidden. [Galatians 6:9]
“Short Accounts”… is the way to live in peace, no matter what happens. My parents and grandparents lived though the ‘Great Depression’. Some others survived, while many others perished. Some learned lesions about finances and some did ‘not’. The last two generations, now a days; have made themselves… “Slaves to Credit”. “They spend monies they do not have = for things they do not need = things which ‘do not’ =bring peace of satisfaction.” Say it isn’t so…?
*** (Isaiah 24:2) And = as it is = with the people, = so it shall be = with the priest [pastor]; = as with the servant, = so with the master; = as with the handmaid, = so it is with her mistress; = as with the buyer, = so with the seller; = as with the lender, = so with the borrower; = as with the creditor, = so with the debtor.
*** (Hosea 4:6) My people = are destroyed = for lack of knowledge. = Because you have rejected knowledge, = I will also reject you = from being priest [Revelation 1:6] to Me. = Since = you have forgotten = the Law of your God, = I will also = forget your sons, even I [The Lord].
The Funeral… that you have attended or will attend soon; will surely put all things in the right perspective. The ‘finality’ of death, will hit you either ‘unexpected’… or, with preparation. That choice is yours and belongs to no one else. There is no such thing as… “Hand me down Faith in God!” Each and every one of us, will stand before Him, and will give an account. Your pastor, your spouse, your father or mother or anyone else… ‘Will Not’… give an account of “Your Decision for Jesus!” That is for you and… you ‘alone’ to make.
*** (Matthew 25:41) Then He [Jesus] = also shall say = to those on the left hand, = Depart from Me, = you cursed [damned], = into everlasting fire = prepared for = the Devil and his angels.
*** (Matthew 13:49-50-51) So it shall be = at the end of the world. = The angels shall come out = and separate = the wicked = from among the just,
(Matt 13:50) and = shall cast them = into the furnace of fire. = There shall be wailing = and = gnashing of teeth.
(Matt 13:51) Jesus said to them, = Have you understood = ‘all’ these things? = They said to Him, Yes, Lord. [How about You?]
Hell is just… the ‘temporary’ stopping place before, the Eternal Lake of Fire. It was not intended for mankind but for the devil and his angels. Yes it is for… those fallen angels, who with Satan, were in ‘rebellion’ against God. Someone said to me, “I don’t believe all that stuff, ‘religion’ and all their trappings!” Well, I don’t either! I simply believe what God, said in His Word, the Bible. ‘Religion’… is nothing more than man’s ‘attempt’, to circumvent what God has already, in His Word. Why do you think, that there so ‘very many’… denominations…?
*** (Luke 4:4) And = Jesus answered him [Satan], = saying, = It is written, = That man shall not live by bread alone, = but by every word of God. [Matthew 4:4]
*** (John 6:63-to-66) It is the [Holy] Spirit = that makes alive, = the flesh profits nothing. = The words = that I speak to you = are spirit = and = are life.
(John 6:64) But = there are some of you = who ‘do not’ believe. = For Jesus knew = from the beginning = who they were = who = ‘did not’ believe, = and = who is the one betraying Him.
(John 6:65) And He said, = Because of this = I said to you that = ‘no one’ = can come to Me = unless it was given = to him = from My Father.
(John 6:66) From this time = many of His = ‘disciples’ = went back = into the things behind, = and = walked ‘no more’ = with Him.
Religion always ‘hates’… the Holy Word of God; the Bible. Those disciples of Jesus, left off from, the words of Spirit and Life… and returned to their Religion! So is it today, some 2,000 years later. People have their… ‘Religion’ …or their ‘Church’ …or their ‘Denomination’… and do ‘not’ want… what the Bible says. Many times while posting on the internet, people will get angry, because they think that I speak badly, about their religion or church. How can I do that… when I only share… what GOD has ‘already’ said in His Word… the Bible? Who do you believe… some church, or… “God and His Word?”
*** (Romans 2:15) who show = the work of the Law [of God] = written in their hearts, = their conscience ‘also’ = bearing witness, = and = the thoughts between one another = ‘accusing’ = or even = ‘excusing’ one another,
*** (Romans 10:3) For they, = being [willingly] ignorant = of God's righteousness = and = going about = to establish their own righteousness, = have ‘not’ submitted = themselves = to the righteousness of God.
When presented with the Word of God… it is your choice to believe Him… or your Church. It is just that simple. With care and in great introspection, you fill out your income taxes, knowing the government will hold, ‘you’ responsible. How much more, the God of All Creation, will He hold you to the… “Complete Authority” = of His Word?” Your pastor, priest or rabbi… will not be able to defend ‘your’ decisions; about ‘your’ religion. Will they…? If you think they can, perhaps get… ‘A Note’… from them, and show it to GOD, when you stand before Him…? Yes, that was an exaggeration to make a point, a hyperbole
The “GOOD” News…
*** (John 3:16-17-18 a.) For God = so loved the world = that He gave = His only-begotten Son [Jesus], = that ‘whoever’ = believes in Him = should ‘not’ perish = but = have everlasting life.
(John 3:17) For God = did ‘not’ = send His Son [the First Time] = into the world = to condemn the world, = but so that = the world might = be saved through = Him.
(John 3:18 a.) He who believes = on Him = is not condemned,
The “BAD” News…
(John 3:18 b. -19-20) but he who = does ‘not’ believe = is condemned [Damned] already, = because = he has ‘not’ believed = in the Name = of the only-begotten = Son of God.
(John 3:19) And this is = the ‘condemnation’, = that the Light = has come into the world, = and = men ‘loved darkness’ [evil] = rather than = the Light, = ‘because’ = their deeds were evil.
(John 3:20) For everyone = who ‘does’ evil = ‘hates’ the Light, = and = does ‘not’ = come to the Light, = lest his deeds = should be exposed.
Please tell me that… You believe the “Word of God”, over what your Church or Denomination? Do you ‘not’ realize… that it is a matter… of ‘eternal’ life or ‘eternal’ death? What you believe about Jesus, Who He is and What He has done; is the most important! Jesus himself gave His… ‘promise & warning’… in the above Bible verses. There are only two choices, to believe Him… or Not…?
*** (John 7:38-39) He who believes = on Me [Jesus], = [only] as the Scripture has said, = "Out of his belly = shall flow = rivers of living water."
(John 7:39) But He spoke this = about the [Holy] Spirit, = which = they who believed = on Him = should receive; = for = the Holy Spirit = was ‘not yet’ given, = because Jesus = was ‘not yet’ glorified.
*** (John 14:6-7) Jesus said to him, = I am the Way, = the Truth, = and = the Life; = ‘no one’ = comes to the Father = but by Me.
(John 14:7) If = you had known Me [Jesus], = you would have known = My Father [God] also. = And = from now on = you know Him = and = have seen Him. [Colossians 1:12-to-19]
*** (John 1:11-to-14) He came to His own, = and = His own received Him = not.
(John 1:12) But = as ‘many’ = as received Him, = He gave = to them authority = to become = the children of God, = to those who believe = on His name,
(John 1:13) who were born, = ‘not’ of bloods, = ‘nor’ of the will of the flesh, = ‘nor’ of the will of man, = but were born [again] of God.
(John 1:14) And = the Word [Jesus] = became flesh, = and = tabernacled among us. = And = we beheld His glory, = the glory as of = the ‘only’ begotten of the Father, = full of grace = and = of Truth.
*** (2Corinthians 6:2) For He says, = "In an acceptable time = I heard you, = and = in a day of salvation, = I helped you;" = Behold, = ‘NOW’ = is the accepted time. Behold, = ‘NOW’ = is the day of salvation.)
*** (Romans 10:9-to-13) Because = ‘if’ you confess = the Lord Jesus, = and = believe in your heart = that God = has raised Him = from the dead, = you shall be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For with the ‘heart’ = one ‘believes’ unto righteousness, = and = with the ‘mouth’ = one confesses = unto salvation.
(Rom 10:11) For the Scripture says, = "Everyone = believing on Him = ‘shall not’ be put to shame."
(Rom 10:12) For there is = ‘no difference’ = both of Jew and of Gentile, = for the same Lord = over ‘all’ = is rich = to ‘all’ = who ‘call’ on = Him.
(Rom 10:13) For everyone, = "whoever shall call = on the name of the Lord = will be saved."
Call upon Him… Today… before... Your ‘Funeral’!
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = “The Truth” = of the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
(Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. = Do not = My Words = do good = to him = who = walks uprightly?
