What’s Follows Death?

Reg of ‘Notregme’

I know, I’ve spoken about this before but as I’ve mentioned it in a comment, I thought I’d just share it here.

Here’s the whole video from where I took the above clip...

Surely your ‘energy conjecture’ limits life to this physical reality and thus discards anything else? yet Jesus said...

1 Corinthians 15:50
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

OK... I get it that you don’t accept the Biblical text as I once didn’t, but I’d still like to relay a little of what it says regarding this issue if I may? Firstly, scripture rejects the general notion of reincarnation...

Hebrews 9:27
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Secondly, it states that in our mortal state... we are triune in nature...

1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole Spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

When God takes back the Spirit that binds our celestial Soul to these earthly Bodies this union falls apart and...

Ecclesiastes 12:7
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

So the Spirit returns to God and the Body decays back to its basic elements within this reality, neither of which were responsible for what the Soul used them for when they were once united with it in life... but as Hebrew 9:27 [above] states, the soul shall be judged for what it did in the days of the flesh.

We see a picture of this in the death of Jesus, when He took all my sins away... for first His Spirit returned to His Father...

Luke 23:46 - [Ps 31:5]
And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Next His Soul separated from His Body and descended into Hades below [Not Hell] where it would have been detained until judgement and a sure sentencing to Hell by The Law of Sin and Death ‘if He had been guilty of sin’, but He was not which is why He was raised again death having no legal right over the righteous.

Romans 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

And all of this took place while His body lay in the tomb. So how does this affect us today when we die? Well, Jesus having conquered Hades and Death...

Revelation 1:18
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

...detains who He will [the bodiless souls of the guilty] in Hades until the judgement and a sure sentencing to Hell, and this on the basis of if...

  • Justifying their sins during the days of their flesh they reject Christ’s payment for sin so descend to Hades, there to be held until Judgement by ‘The Law of Sin and Death’ and so a certain sentencing to a place in Hell worthy of their sins. [Rev 20:11-15]
  • Or... having acknowledged their sins accepted God’s only provision for sins, even God’s Son’s death upon a Cross in their place, who as Hebrews 9:27 states shall also stand at a judgement [2 Cor 5:10] but not for sentencing to Hell, but rather to receive rewards shortly before entering eternal life and returning to this earth for the duration of the Millennium...

Revelation 5:10
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Christianity has been greatly misrepresented by our entertainment industry, which tends to teach that upon death a man’s bodiless soul descend directly to Hell having been ‘deemed’ to be evil [though no judgement has occured] while those ‘deemed’ to be good [by what standard?] go straight to Heaven, there to run through fields of long grass for eternity [talk about boring].

Anyway, that just scratches the surface of the scope of the salvation revealed in the Holy Text spoken of from Genesis 3:15 to Revelation 22:21. It staggers me how I once so flippantly rejected this text, having made no investigation of it at all.

Proverbs 18:13
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

It is interesting to hear other people’s unsubstantiated ‘opinions’ regarding this issue, but what happens to me after I’m separated from my body is worth of much more than a cursory view... my own conscience driving me to seek a saviour from sins that I am not only ashamed of though none know of them, but am convinced must be accounted for.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
13 - Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 - For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
