Escape from an apostate church through knowledge of Scriptures.
I have been reading your website and would like to ask the
What happens when
you die? Where do you go to?
[Wondering where you go]
Dear [Wondering where you go],
After researching the Scriptures on this topic, my
conclusion is that when a person dies, they simply are asleep. On the last day, the day of Judgment, all the
dead will awake from their graves to be judged.
The idea a person's consciousness continues on in heaven or the lake of
fire or in purgatory or in the realms of the departed is an idea that is not
well supported in Scriptures but is an idea that is strongly propagated among
gentile theologians with strong pagan influences. We prefer to cling to what is very plainly
instructed of us from the Scriptures, which also means that any interactions
with the "dead" is strictly forbidden, as demons are capable of
disguising themselves in order to deceive.
This also means that the time of grace for a person is now during this
life, since there is no more opportunity for repentance after one has
died. Please let me know if you would
like more information.
Peace to you in the name of Yahshua Messiah,
I am confused when jesus died where did he go for the 3
days as according to the scriptures jesus went down in the realms of the
departed what was the purpose for that?
when eliah and moses appear on the mountain with jesus
and his 2 apostles why did they come there because they were already dead? How
come the living and the dead be together
then with jesus?
Dear [Wondering where you go],
We read in 1 Peter 3:18-20 as follows.
"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the
just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the
flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By
which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once
the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a
preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water."
We have no evidence that the spirits in prison were
actually the souls of dead human beings; we do however have evidence from
Scriptures that fallen angels that caused men to sin before the flood were put
into prison. We see this evidence in
"The angels which kept not their first estate, but
left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under
darkness unto the judgment of the great day."
So, we see from scripture that these were not dead people
but rather fallen angels that were placed into prison.
From Matthew 17:3, we conclude that Moses and Elijah had
arisen from the dead to speak with Yahshua.
This begs the question, "could they still be walking the earth
today?" The text does not given an
answer, as details of the account are tenuous.
But from the pattern of Scripture, we see that many have risen from the
dead, but we do not see examples of conversations with the dead, which is a
violation of Yah's ethics. Even King
Saul, when with the witch at Endor, spoke with Samuel who had risen bodily from
With both questions, we have patterns from Scripture that
must be understood within the context of Scripture, yet sadly, there are
beastly imitators who wish ascribe paganized meaning into Scriptures. We call this a "pretext"; it is
when a person takes a demonically-inspired idea, such as communicating with the
dead, and then looks for examples in Scripture that, without Scriptural
contextualization, appear to fit that pattern.
As a result, without thorough Scriptural contextualization, one reaches
an incorrect conclusion. To reach a
correct understanding, we must understand Scriptures in light of Scriptural
definitions and context.
Peace and truth to you in the name of Yahshua Messiah,
i hope you dont mind but i will go to the scriptures and
read it and then will get back to you
And further if you do not mind i have a few other
questions as well but will send it later
