Death and the Resurrections

(Page 1)

There are three (3) reasons for writing on this particular subject, besides to help with better all-around understanding of scriptures on these topics.
-1- To address the false teachings and understanding of the Resurrection taking place in the present old body upon this wayward planetary society, that many are being taught today.
-2- To address the misunderstandings of Soul sleeping.
-3- To give better understanding of Abraham's Bosom.

Individuals are being lead to believe that the Resurrection takes place when an individual becomes born again, a new creature in Christ (before physical death).
It is true one's Spirit must be truly born again in the present life upon the wayward planetary society. In becoming a born again Child of God upon this wayward planetary society, it is the preparation of the Spirit for the after-life, and new body, to become a Son of God of the universe.
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Luke 20:36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
We pray these writings will show that physical death of the old body must take place for God's Resurrection of life to take place!

A born again Child of God is an individual that has made the choice within your mind, heart and soul to change their thinking and actions towards sin by their rejecting all sin in the world, and to then live in and by God's Good and Righteousness, now and forevermore!
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
• A born again Child of God has truly made the choice with all their mind, heart and soul to follow in the footsteps of their Lord God and His Good, to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does want with all their heart, soul and might to live-up to the Image of God they were initially created in, to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does know His Heavenly Father in Spirit and in Flesh, to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does follow the family rules (Ten Commandments), to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does acknowledge their sin (when they fall short), ask for forgiveness and repents, to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does strive to overcome sin completely, to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does know and understand their purpose for their creation, to spread the Love of GOD and help others, to become a Son of God in the universe.
• A born again Child of God does reflect and represent GOD in all they do and say upon their wayward planet, to become a Son of God in the universe.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Romans 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Romans 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
1 John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

It is the condition (strong) of an individual's Spirit that does determine the destiny of that Spirit (& Soul) upon physical death, and whether that Spirit (& Soul) will be given a New Body to live in for eternity.
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
Galatians 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

The Soul does allow GOD to know who truly holds allegiance to Him and His Good and Righteousness. GOD's Good and Righteousness that is beheld in the Ten Commandments and Physically displayed by and through Jesus Christ, that does overcome sin!
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Matthew 19:16-19 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mark 10:17-19 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
Deuteronomy 10:13 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?
1 Kings 3:14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.
Proverbs 4:4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
Romans 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. 

The Power of Good and Righteousness beheld within the Ten Commandments and Physically displayed by and through Jesus Christ, if followed does give a Child of God the ability to become a Son of God (like Jesus)!
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
GOD did Physically teach and show what it takes to become a Son of God, being a Son of God Himself (Example)! GOD did Physically teach and show both Jews and Gentiles the correct way to obtain long-term (eternal) existence. This can be sighted in His Resurrection!
John 14:5-6 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Jesus Christ is GOD's Good and Rightousness come in the Flesh, so be 'IN' Him and He 'IN' you is to be in GOD's Good and Righteousness!
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The Spirit (& Soul) of an individual must be strong enough in GOD's Good and Righteousness to return to Father GOD?
Proverbs 10:29 The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
The Angels excel in strength, that do his commandments. How much more will the Sons of God that were created in GOD's Image of Good?
Psalms 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Upon physical death, the brain does stop keeping the physical body alive, but the Soul is an existence unto itself which continues to function and record every thought, deed, act, or action ever felt, or undertaken by an individual.

The Spirit and Soul of the Righteous does return to the Father GOD.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
1 Peter 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Psalms 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

The Spirit is the energy source that does give any living existence life within a physical existence.
GOD does cause the Spirit of a Son of God to sleep (rest) until resurrected and given a New Physical Body.
The Spirit sleeps, not the Soul.
If the Soul did sleep, the Spirit and Soul would disconnect, then the Spirit would dissipate, which means the individual would cease to exist.
The Soul (only afforded man) does give the Spirit the ability to exist after the physical body does die. Only Image Children were created with a most unique Spirit that can retain a Soul. The Soul, the very Breath of God, is the vehicle given by God that allows the Spirit to exist eternally.

The Spirit does sleep (rest) in Abraham's Bosom, while waiting to be Resurrected and given their New Physical Body to live eternally in. Abraham's Bosom is a place of protection GOD created for those resting (sleeping) Spirits. A special created place where Satan and his minions cannot come in contact with those resting Spirits.
Luke 16:22-23 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Matthew 9:24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
John 11:11-13 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1 Thessalonians 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
Individuals are aware of their surroundings even though the Spirit does not have a physical body to interact with its surroundings.
The Soul continues to record all the Spirit does experience, whether in Abraham's Bosom, or their own personal hell.
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

Abraham's Bosom is a place created within time and space. It is called Abraham's Bosom because he is the earthly father of all the individuals that conform to the same righteousness. This created place of protection for the Spirit of the physical dead is for those individuals that are clothed in the same Righteousness as Abraham.
(Abraham's Bosom is not in a dimension. Dimensions are for traveling, not for staying or living in for any period of time.)
Romans 4:12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.
Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
Galatians 3:6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

Many have been lead to believe Abraham's Bosom is the third heaven that Paul spoke of being caught up to.
2 Corinthians 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
The first heaven is within man, the second heaven is within the universe (heavens), and the third heaven is on the other side of the universe where the Throne of GOD is.
Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.
Nehemiah 9:6 Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
Daniel 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

The Spirits of the physical dead are aware of the direction their choices have taken them, "some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt".
The word 'awake' in Daniel (12:2) and 'resurrection' in John (5:29) are to give the reader understanding of this awareness upon physical death.
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
John 5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
Punishment is everlasting, in the sense that no change of mind can be applied to this judgment, and their suffering is a constant and limitless.
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
2 Thessalonians 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;


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

2 Thessalonians 1:5 
Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God,
that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:
