  • Mickey on Revelation 1
    LYNN: 2 Corinthians 8 (1-10)
    Absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. It needs to be read in context.

    Hi Mickey, yes, context does matter. It sounds like you're referring to 2 Corinthians 5:8 in which Paul says he would 'willing rather' or would rather... be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. He didn't say that everyone upon death is instantly with the Lord and skips judgment or that the dead don't rise to meet Jesus in the clouds. Instead he said would 'rather' be with the Lord. Other verses that say that we will each first face a day of Judgment. 1 Corinthians 4:5 says Jesus will come, then everyone will be judged upon the judgment seat of Christ 2 Corinthians 5:10, and dead will rise to meet the Lord 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

    I'd have to look up some stuff first. Christians face the Bema Seat. We've already been judged. Jesus is our Advocate. Dead to sin, Alive in Christ.

    absent from the body, present with the lord is a fact. Hebrews 9:27-28 King James Version (KJV) 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: there is no scripture to indicate we go anywhere but to Jesus.

    I don't really remember that conversation. Looks like two different comments. I'll watch that. Sorry.
