Discussion for Job 1

  • Chuck
    It is appointed for man once
    To die than the judgement
    Heb9-27 rev 11-15 read the
    Bible there is a literal hell
    Fire without a saving knowledge
    Of the lord Jesus Christ alone
    For salvation and there is a heaven
    When a believer dies absent in the
    Body is to present with the lord
    2nd cor 5-6-8 wake up and stop
    Disputing life after death we have
    A body soul and spirit .not animals
  • Ann
    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. Amen.
  • A disciple
    Ren; if you read 1 Samuel 28, particularly verse 13, you might better understand what happens when we die. Compare with Ecclesiastes 3:21 "Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth?" and, Ecclesiastes 12:7 "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it." See also Ezekiel 32.
  • A disciple
    Ren; God doesn't "reveal" things to us that are unscriptural and simply false! The story of the rich man and Lazarus is true; not a parable. Besides, Jesus spoke about hell and the Gehenna more than 20 times; and that at the Day of Judgment, Hell would be cast into the Lake of Fire. The rich man died and was buried, and the next moment he lifted up his eyes "IN HELL" and saw Lazarus in heaven!
  • Ren
    @Chuck No Lavonne is correct!!!! I am not a seventh day adventist or a
    jehovah witness and I believe what she said.Lazurus was a parable there are a lot of those in the Bible.There will be only one judgement day at the end so till then we will sleep with our fathers just like everyone else.Think about it you cant go on to Heaven till judgement day.I had prayed to God and he revealed this to me.
  • Chuck
    lavonne you are dead wrong you must be either a seventh day adventist or a
    jehovah witness we have a body , soul and spirit just like the GOD HEAD
    1ST JOHN5-7, COL 2-9, THE BIBLE SAYS TO BE ABSENT IN THE BODY
    IS TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD, READ THE RICH MAN AND LAZURUS IN
    LUKE 16, THERE IS A HEAVEN OR HELL AFTER DEATH IS THE JUDGEMENT
    HEB 9-27
