    THE DEAD DON'T SLEEP

    to demitri Maybe you are right about the dead being asleep.but Jesus told the thief, while on the cross Today you will be in paradise with me. could this have changed when Jesus was crucified ? Also Matt. 27:52 The graves broke open and many of the saints that slept were resurrected and went into the city. I m not challenging you ;Only seeking

    To Dimitri: I believe the Word of God, so I will give you scriptures to prove, that what God said is true. I have studied God's Word for over 50 yrs since I was Saved. If you do not believe the Bible. Do NOT respond back. I will not argue with you. Your body is dead (asleep), To be resurrected in the last day. Colossians 3:3,7 - I Thessalonians 4:13-18 There are so many more scriptures.

    John 5:25 In the Gospel of John, Jesus is dealing with the Jew Israel , so it might be talking about the dead in Abraham Boosem.

    Only through our OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S WORDS WE WILL MADE WHOLE. The Paralized man was not healed when Jesus came He was healed the moment he obeyed what Jesus told him to do. When we deligently seeking God and obey his words we are releasing our Faith. Jesus made everything new its time for us to THANKED HIS BLOOD AND PRAISE HIM AND FOLLOW HIM TILL RAPTURE. I love you and trust u Jesus

    After you die, you go into a deeeeeeep sleep coma. Time esentialy stops for you, 100000 years can go by and be like 1 second for you, cause you don't feel anything anyway.. In the Bible, death has always been likened to a sleep like state: 1Ki 2:10 1Ki 11:43 2Ch 14:1 , .... and the list goes on and on and on........... just search for: "slept fathers" You experience nothing: PSA 146:4 ECC 9:5-6 Important examples: DAN 12:2 DAN 12:13 1Th 4:16-17 JOH 6:39-44 No offence, but the belief that once you die you to paradise or you go to hell is taken from non-Biblical religions.. and i'm really sorry to those who hold dear to it. But please just be honest to yourself and to God: Always be Patient.. it took me years to know this.
