If you refuse to acknowledge your sin, why would you feel the need to seek a saviour?
The very ‘learned’ panel above discuss the possibility of our existence after death. They approach the subject on a purely scientific and experiential basis, never once bringing up the issue of accountability after our demise.
Of course, that would put a fly-in-the-ointment who would rather pursue the delusion that we step into some kind of glorious after-life without being held accountable for what we did in the days of our flesh, where in reality if their hope were realised we should ever rub shoulders with the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Qaddafi. Unless of course seeing their error they should thereafter attempt to draw some kind moral line in the sand and open a ‘can of worms’ they could never put the lid on again. For the question must then be asked... who and by what eternal standard should one man enter their heavenly realm and another be cast out?
He that believeth on him [in life] is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
For scripture tells us we a 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.
Obviously, it isn’t our life-giving spirit which bound our soul to a terrestrial body in life, nor indeed the body itself that shall be brought to account for the things we did in the days of our flesh, but our sentient soul.
Then shall the dust [body] return to the earth as it was: and the [live-giving] spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
But what of the soul?
But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost [Life giving spirit], but where is he?
The soul that continues after death is to be held accountable, and as nobody can be sentenced to a place in hell worthy of their crimes before being judged at a still future judgement, there needs to be a place where those souls accused of sin are detained until judgement...
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
And that place is called “Hades” at the centre of the earth, and not hell to where multitudes will be sentenced having been judged.
Before Jesus came and paid the penalty for sin, those who believed the scriptures that foretold of His coming and payment for sin were held in Hades with the wicked unbelieving, their sins still outstanding...
All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
And the authority that held them there in a state of death until a still future judgement was The Law of Sin and Death.
But Jesus came as promised in the scriptures of truth, whose disembodied soul through the medium of death entered Hades after His live-giving spirit had first returned to His Father...
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.
Then the union between His body and soul broke as prophesied by the Psalmist before ever He had walked this earth...
For thou wilt not leave my soul in
hell [Hebrew: Showl (Hades)]; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One[’s body] to see corruption. [as it lays in the tomb]
Fulfilled only by Jesus...
Because thou wilt not leave my soul in
hell [Greek: Hades], neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One[’s body] to see corruption. [as it lays in the tomb]
Who having never sinned, The Law of Sin and Death had no legal authority to detain the innocent in Hades in a state of death [A bodiless soul] but the guilty only
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Thus Jesus not only conquered Death and Hades...
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of
[Greek : Hades] and of death.
But rose from that place to the Third Heaven [2 Cor 12:2-4], taking with Him all those disembodied souls that had die believing, and waited in Hades patiently for His promised coming and payment for sin.
8 - Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 - (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10 - He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
Today, now so long after the Cross we few who trust on His previous payment for sins shall not see Hades, but rather our disembodied souls shall ascend at the point of death directly to the Third Heaven, the penalty for our sins having been paid at the Cross over two thousand years ago.
2 Corinthians 5:8
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Then shall come the day when we shall be resurrected incorruptible and immortal, praise God.
1 Corinthians 15:52-55
52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 - For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 - So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 - O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
That the departing soul can return on rare occasions is of no surprise to those who know their God.
1 Kings 17:21-22
21 - And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again.
22 - And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.
But the conclusion of this video is that as there is no accountability for sin, but rather having been deceived by other disembodied entities masquerading as lost loved ones you apparently have no need of a saviour so shall die in your sins, having rejected God’s only provision for sin, Christ and Him crucified.
But I tell you the truth, that if you ‘die in your sins’ your disembodied soul shall descend immediately to Hades to await the resurrection of the damned, that you are then made to stand at ‘The Great White Throne judgement’ to give an account for every deed and idle word [Matt 12:36]. There, your outstanding sins shall be considered that a place in hell can be ascertained worthy of your crimes.
11 - And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 - And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 - And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and
hell [Greek: Hades] delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 - And death and
hell [Hades] were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 - And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Acknowledge your sins today, yes they shall break you that your heart might be discovered. For in that moment, you shall either harden your heart to excuse them or through acceptance, call out for a saviour in the person of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 7:10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
For the cry ascending from a broken and contrite heart God will not despise, but has promised to answer quickly.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
