Chapter Fifteen – DEATH

 October 8th, 2010 | Author: Douglas

Not a very pleasant subject, especially for persons that have always believed incorrectly, and then when accurate knowledge of the Bible is taken into account, the real truth emerges.

A jolting, very unpleasant start to this discussion is absolutely necessary, as it informs of all the lies about death that are prevalent, and also why the sacredness of LIFE is not as fully appreciated as it should be.

Jehovah God, the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Almighty God, our Heavenly Father and Creator, states in His Manual, the Holy Bible, that when you die, that you are as lifeless as a stone, with the one real difference. After your death you remain in His memory, either as a loving child of His, or a disobedient wrongdoer.

If Jehovah God remembers you as a loving child of His, you will be destined to be eventually resurrected to a physical, fleshly existence as a perfect human being. You will then live in paradise conditions on this earth for a thousand years.

The Devil will then be let loose, and you will have to resist him in your perfect condition. Remember, Adam was perfect enough to resist the Devil, and so will you be. Adam failed. The choice will be yours. If you fail, it will be entirely your fault, and you will then be totally destroyed forever. Remember, now in your imperfect state, Jehovah God will make the necessary allowances, but when you are as perfect as Adam was, then you should be able to resist Satan the Devil entirely on your own. IT MUST BE YOUR DESIRE!

If, however, you are remembered as a disobedient wrongdoer, you will be judged by Jesus, and the persons that are part of the 144 000 that are already in Heaven. Jesus started his rule in the year of 1914, and the persons that were part of the 144 000 bought from the earth, that were dead at that time, were immediately taken up to Heaven, to serve as kings under Jesus. This judgement will take place in Heaven, and if you are found unworthy, you will immediately be destroyed, and removed from Jehovah God’s memory. Therefore, the words of Romans 6:7 For he who has died has been acquitted from [his] sin. (In other words, he no longer exists and so no longer “owes” Jehovah God anything. Jehovah God does not keep a “little black book”, especially not of non-existent persons.)

If you were a loving child, Jehovah God will forgive you and thus you will be acquitted of your sins.

If you were a disobedient wrongdoer, Jehovah God will forget you after you have been destroyed and become non-existent and thus you will be acquitted of your sins. Jehovah God will not find it acceptable or necessary to hold sins against non-existent persons.

Remember, the choice is yours alone, but it will have a ripple effect on your loved ones and acquaintances. YOU MUST FIND OUT WHAT JEHOVAH GOD WANTS FROM HUMANS!

The Bible does not mention anything about a spirit or a soul leaving the body at the point of death. Instead the Bible states at Ecclesiastes 3:19 – 21:

19 For there is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity. 20 All are going to one place. They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust. 21 Who is there knowing the spirit of the sons of mankind, whether it is ascending upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it is descending downward to the earth?

Let us see what the Scriptures have to say about DEATH:

Ezekiel 28:10

“‘The deaths of uncircumcised ones you will die by the hand of strangers, for I myself have spoken,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah.”  (Spiritual circumcision is here applicable.)

Ezekiel 31:18

“‘Whom have you come to resemble thus in glory and greatness among the trees of E´den? But you will certainly be brought down with the trees of E´den to the land down below. In the midst of the uncircumcised ones you will lie down with those slain by the sword. This is Phar´aoh and all his crowd,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah…  (Spiritual circumcision is here applicable. Also the word “tree” is indicative of persons and “high trees” is indicative of people in high office or that have powerful positions.)

 Ezekiel 33:4

4 and the hearer actually hears the sound of the horn but he takes no warning at all, and a sword comes and takes him away, his own blood will come to be upon his own head. . . (When you have been approached about Jehovah God’s Will and have not heeded, it will be your own undoing and your choice.)

Ezekiel 33:5

The sound of the horn he heard, but he took no warning. His own blood will come to be upon his own self. And had he himself taken warning, his own soul would have escaped. (When you have been approached about Jehovah God’s Will and have not heeded, it will be your own undoing and your choice.)

Ezekiel 33:8

When I say to someone wicked, ‘O wicked one, you will positively die!’ but you actually do not speak out to warn the wicked one from his way, he himself as a wicked one will die in his own error, but his blood I shall ask back at your own hand . . . (This is a direct instruction that it is your duty to warn others of their impending destruction if you are aware of it, or to forfeit your own life.)

Ezekiel 33:11

Say to them, ‘“As I am alive,” is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, “I take delight, not in the death of the wicked one, but in that someone wicked turns back from his way and actually keeps living. Turn back, turn back from YOUR bad ways, for why is it that YOU should die, O house of Israel?”‘ (This is the main and only reason that Armageddon has not occurred yet, so if you do not do the exact will of Jehovah God to the best of your ability yet, be ever grateful for His undeserved kindness towards you, and thankful that He is prepared to let the wicked as well as His actual children suffer and die, so as to allow you the possibility to change.)

Ezekiel 38:21

“‘And I will call forth against him throughout all my mountainous region a sword,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘Against his own brother the sword of each one will come to be. (At the event of Armageddon the people that are unacceptable to Jehovah God  will slaughter each other.)

Ezekiel 43:7

And He went on to say to me: “Son of man, [this is] the place of my throne and the place of the soles of my feet, where I shall reside in the midst of the sons of Israel to time indefinite; and no more will they, the house of Israel, defile my holy name, they and their kings, by their fornication and by the carcasses of their kings at their death, (From this Scripture it is definitely the false “house of Israel” or the false religious leaders of what is supposed to be known as Jehovah God’s house or church that have been profaning His Holy Name, and not all the smaller cults and sects only.)

Ezekiel 43:8

8 by their putting their threshold with my threshold and their doorpost beside my doorpost, with the wall between me and them. And they defiled my holy name by their detestable things that they did, so that I went exterminating them in my anger. (From this Scripture it is definitely the false “house of Israel” or the false religious leaders of what is supposed to be known as Jehovah God’s house or church that have been profaning His Holy Name, and not all the smaller cults and sects only.)

Daniel 3:27

And the satraps, the prefects and the governors and the high officials of the king that were assembled were beholding these able-bodied men, that the fire had had no power over their bodies, and not a hair of their head had been singed, and even their mantles had not been changed and the smell of fire itself had not come onto them. (Death is not even a minor irritation for Jehovah God as He has full power over it. What saddens His heart is that so many are going to die and eventually be annihilated.)

Daniel 12:13

“And as for you yourself, go toward the end; and you will rest, but you will stand up for your lot at the end of the days.”

Micah 1:7

And her graven images will all be crushed to pieces, and all the gifts [made] to her as her hire will be burned in the fire; and all her idols I shall make a desolate waste. For from the things given as the hire of a prostitute she collected [them], and to the thing given as the hire of a prostitute they will return.” (The destruction of false religion, Babylon the Great, with all her wealth, power and influence is being foretold. All the power and wealth was earned while false religion and the evil rulers of this world were “prostituting” with each other. The word in this Scripture “fire” indicates eternal destruction for “Her”. The word “prostitute” indicates that she was paid for her services by the Wild Beast, which in turn represents all the world powers and rulers.)

Nahum 1:14

And concerning you Jehovah has commanded, ‘Nothing of your name will be sown anymore. Out of the house of your gods I shall cut off carved image and molten statue. I shall make a burial place for you, because you have been of no account.’ (Wooden, metal and concrete idols, crosses and other religious symbols are to be destroyed. Even, and especially, all those that are inside or outside the religious institutions that are supposed to represent true worship.)

Habakkuk 2:13

Look! Is it not from Jehovah of armies that peoples will toil on only for the fire, and that national groups will tire themselves out merely for nothing? (It is only if you toil for Jehovah God that you will not toil for nothing!)

Zephaniah 3:8

“‘Therefore keep yourselves in expectation of me,’ is the utterance of Jehovah, ‘till the day of my rising up to [the] booty, for my judicial decision is to gather nations, for me to collect together kingdoms, in order to pour out upon them my denunciation, all my burning anger; for by the fire of my zeal all the earth will be devoured. (The word “earth” is used in this Scripture to depict all the people that are unacceptable to Jehovah God. And once again the word “fire” depicts eternal destruction.)

John 19:7

The Jews answered him: “We have a law, and according to the law he ought to die, because he made himself God’s son.” (Even the Jews were not accepting that Jesus was Jehovah God. They were not even prepared to have Jesus to be Jehovah God’s Son, never mind Jehovah God Himself. No Trinity doctrine was believed by the Jews in Biblical times.)

Acts 7:60

Then, bending his knees, he cried out with a strong voice: “Jehovah, do not charge this sin against them.” And after saying this he fell asleep [in death].

Romans 1:32

Although these know full well the righteous decree of God, that those practicing such things are deserving of death, they not only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them. (Silence is not always golden. Keeping quiet is often silent consent as well.)

Romans 3:24

24 and it is as a free gift that they are being declared righteous by his undeserved kindness through the release by the ransom [paid] by Christ Jesus.

Romans 5:21

To what end? That, just as sin ruled as king with death, likewise also undeserved kindness might rule as king through righteousness with everlasting life in view through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:5

For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we shall certainly also be [united with him in the likeness] of his resurrection; (The 144 000 Heavenly Class are being spoken of.)

Romans 6:7

For he who has died has been acquitted from [his] sin.

Romans 6:9

For we know that Christ, now that he has been raised up from the dead, dies no more; death is master over him no more. (Take note that death was master over Jesus when he was on earth, and before he was murdered.)

Romans 6:10

For [the death] that he died, he died with reference to sin once for all time; but [the life] that he lives, he lives with reference to God. (Jesus Christ died and so caused the death of sin and death itself, although not immediately, but after the thousand year period after the advent of Armageddon.)

Romans 6:23

For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord. (My earthly father and I differed on the interpretation of this verse, because of the verse at Romans 6:7 which states that once a person has died that he is acquitted of his sin. I think I differ with many people on this interpretation, also the Jehovah’s Witnesses, amongst others. A wage is what you have earned and it therefore belongs to you. So if you have earned death, then death is what belongs to you. If you die, and Jehovah God’s standards find you acceptable then your sins are forgiven you and thus you are acquitted of your sins. If you are not found acceptable after dying, then you become totally annihilated, and then it would be senseless for Jehovah God to keep any record of your sins. To my way of reasoning this makes total logical sense.)

Romans 7:2

For instance, a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he is alive; but if her husband dies she is discharged from the law of her husband.

Romans 7:24

Miserable man that I am! Who will rescue me from the body undergoing this death?

Romans 8:11

If, now, the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in YOU, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also make YOUR mortal bodies alive through his spirit that resides in YOU. (The Holy Spirit is being spoken about.)

Romans 8:36

Just as it is written: “For your sake we are being put to death all day long, we have been accounted as sheep for slaughtering.” (This being put to death is dying according to the fleshly ways of this present system of things, as the person is strengthened daily by studying Jehovah God’s Word and thus daily becoming stronger spiritually.)

Romans 10:9

For if you publicly declare that ‘word in your own mouth,’ that Jesus is Lord, and exercise faith in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved. (It is imperative that you preach whenever you are afforded the chance.)

Romans 14:9

For to this end Christ died and came to life again, that he might be Lord over both the dead and the living.

1 Corinthians 15:21

For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man. (So unless someone wants to persist in calling Jehovah God a liar, then Jesus was only a mere man when he was on earth and before he was murdered.)

1 Corinthians 15:26

As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing.

1 Corinthians 15:53

For this which is corruptible must put on incorruption, and this which is mortal must put on immortality.

1 Corinthians 15:54

But when [this which is corruptible puts on incorruption and] this which is mortal puts on immortality, then the saying will take place that is written: “Death is swallowed up forever.”

1 Corinthians 15:55

“Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?”

2 Corinthians 4:11

For we who live are ever being brought face to face with death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus may also be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

1 Thessalonians 2:15

15 who killed even the Lord Jesus and the prophets and persecuted us. Furthermore, they are not pleasing God, but are against [the interests of] all men,

1 Thessalonians 5:3

Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape.

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains.

2 Timothy 1:10

10 but now it has been made clearly evident through the manifestation of our Saviour, Christ Jesus, who has abolished death but has shed light upon life and incorruption through the good news,

Hebrews 2:7

You made him a little lower than angels; with glory and honour you crowned him, and appointed him over the works of your hands. (Man was made a little lower than the angels. Jesus was made a little lower than the angels. That means that Jesus was exactly equal to a mere man when on earth and when paying the ransom.)

Hebrews 2:9

but we behold Jesus, who has been made a little lower than angels, crowned with glory and honour for having suffered death, that he by God’s undeserved kindness might taste death for every [man].

Hebrews 2:14

Therefore, since the “young children” are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil;

Hebrews 5:7

In the days of his flesh [Christ] offered up supplications and also petitions to the One who was able to save him out of death, with strong outcries and tears, and he was favourably heard for his godly fear.

Hebrews 5:9

9 and after he had been made perfect he became responsible for everlasting salvation to all those obeying him,

Hebrews 11:5

By faith E´noch was transferred so as not to see death, and he was nowhere to be found because God had transferred him; for before his transference he had the witness that he had pleased God well.

James 1:13

When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone. (This is also an ultimately important Scripture. My mother-in-law always used to say: “I do not know what I have done that God is making me suffer so much pain”. I am not trying to do my mother-in-law any injustice by this comment, as I can assure that she was in her way a very god-fearing person, but sincerely believed that it was some or other cleansing or preparation process. So, this is just an example of how unwittingly people can say so many untrue and blasphemous things about Jehovah God.)

James 1:14 & 15

14 But each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin; in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished brings forth death. (Remember, Satan the Devil is the epitome of shrewd deception, and is extremely sly. For instance, because you eat that little bit too much, you become overweight, although often not obese. The overweight, however, is enough to cause pain and suffering later in life especially, and especially in the person’s legs. Then the false accusation is often said: “Why does God make me suffer so much”?  Although the accusation is not done with disgust and disdain, it unwittingly becomes the unforgivable sin of blasphemy against Jehovah God. Do you now see how sly and wily Satan is, and how easily he misleads people?)

James 3:5 & 6

5 So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags. Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! 6 Well, the tongue is a fire. The tongue is constituted a world of unrighteousness among our members, for it spots up all the body and sets the wheel of natural life aflame and it is set aflame by Ge.hen’na.

James 3:8 – 10

8 But the tongue, not one of mankind can get it tamed. An unruly injurious thing, it is full of death-dealing poison. 9 With it we bless Jehovah, even [the] Father, and yet with it we curse men who have come into existence “in the likeness of God.” 10 Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. It is not proper, my brothers, for these things to go on occurring this way. (Sinning that brings death is not necessarily always actions, but mostly verbal pronunciations.)

James 3:17

But the wisdom from above is first of all chaste, then peaceable, reasonable, ready to obey, full of mercy and good fruits, not making partial distinctions, not hypocritical. (Practising to gain a good way of life is not always easy, but with a fair amount of determination and plenty of prayer, it becomes so much easier. Remember to try to make it a WAY of life, and not the avoiding of bad or evil only.)

1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for according to his great mercy he gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (To Jehovah God death is not an obstacle for Him to overcome. Death is the instrument that He has to unfortunately enforce due to fleshly evil desires instigated by Satan the Devil mostly. Jehovah God will also apply death to Satan as well.)

2 Peter 2:1

However, there also came to be false prophets among the people, as there will also be false teachers among YOU. These very ones will quietly bring in destructive sects and will disown even the owner that bought them, bringing speedy destruction upon themselves. (Accurate Bible knowledge is the way to ascertain what is true and what is false, so that you can beat death.)

2 Peter 3:4 & 5

4 And saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.” 5 For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; (Can you imagine how the people actually must have mocked Noah as well. Jehovah God is not slow in keeping His promise, and the end will not be LATE.)

2 Peter 3:8 & 9

8 However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. (DO THE PEOPLE NOW REALISE WHY THE END IS NOT HERE YET? JEHOVAH GOD IS BEING AS KIND AS HE POSSIBLY CAN BE!)

2 Peter 3:15

Furthermore, consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul according to the wisdom given him also wrote YOU. (DO THE PEOPLE NOW REALISE WHY THE END IS NOT HERE YET? JEHOVAH GOD IS BEING AS KIND AS HE POSSIBLY CAN BE!)

1 John 3:8

He who carries on sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has been sinning from [the] beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, namely, to break up the works of the Devil. (And destroy death by doing so!)

Revelation 2:23

And her children I will kill with deadly plague, so that all the congregations will know that I am he who searches the kidneys and hearts, and I will give to YOU individually according to YOUR deeds.

Revelation 3:10

Because you kept the word about my endurance, I will also keep you from the hour of test, which is to come upon the whole inhabited earth, to put a test upon those dwelling on the earth.

Revelation 6:4

And another came forth, a fiery-coloured horse; and to the one seated upon it there was granted to take peace away from the earth so that they should slaughter one another; and a great sword was given him. (THIS IS WHY I INTERPRET THE WAY I DO ABOUT ARMAGEDDON. THE HUMANS ARE ALL GOING TO DESTROY EACH OTHER WORLDWIDE SIMULTANEOUSLY!)

Revelation 6:11

And a white robe was given to each of them; and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the number was filled also of their fellow slaves and their brothers who were about to be killed as they also had been. (The persons that were also part of the 144 000 that were bought from the earth and died before 1914CE had to wait until Satan was hurled out of Heaven and Jesus had become King before they could join Jesus. The balance of the 144 000 that are still on the earth have to die and be resurrected to Heaven before Armageddon can occur.)

Revelation 8:9

9 and a third of the creatures that are in the sea which have souls died, and a third of the boats were wrecked.

Revelation 9:4

And they were told to harm no vegetation of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. (So, as for Revelation 6:4, this Scriptures also states that the physical world will not be harmed at Armageddon.)

Revelation 9:20

But the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, so that they should not worship the demons and the idols of gold and silver and copper and stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; (If you are looking for these demonic creations you will not have to look far. The nearest false religious church or temple should oblige.)

Revelation 9:21

21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their spiritistic practices nor of their fornication nor of their thefts.

Revelation 12:17

And the dragon grew wrathful at the woman, and went off to wage war with the remaining ones of her seed, who observe the commandments of God and have the work of bearing witness to Jesus.

Revelation 17:5 & 6

5 And upon her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth.” 6 And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the holy ones and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. Well, on catching sight of her I wondered with great wonderment.

Revelation 20:1 – 3

1 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven with the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he seized the dragon, the original serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 And he hurled him into the abyss and shut [it] and sealed [it] over him, that he might not mislead the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After these things he must be let loose for a little while.

Revelation 20:5 & 6

5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6 Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no authority, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ, and will rule as kings with him for the thousand years. (The 144 000 Heavenly Class are being spoken of.)
