First Resurrection All Saved

The resurrection of Christ Who is the first fruits of them that arose (1st Corinthians 15 20,23). 2. (Locate 2 on Diagram 7). A group of Saints resurrected after Christ's resurrection. They appeared in Jerusalem and were offered by the Lord as a sheaf offering to God (Matthew 27 52,53 Leviticus 23 10,11). They are in Heaven and will return with Christ to set up the Kingdom. 3. (Locate 3 on Diagram 7). This is the resurrection at the Rapture. Those resurrected are the...

Difficult Scriptures And Questions

It is not my intention to expound with a full exposition on the Scriptures and questions we are going to list. In my years as a pastor, many questions have been asked in relation to our subject. I thought it might be of help to cover some of the most often asked with a brief explanation which might help the reader should they decide to pursue a more intensive study. 1. Matthew 10 28. but rather fear him (Christ) which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Does the word destroy mean no...

Second Resurrection All Lost

In Revelation 20 5 we are told, But the rest of the dead (the lost) lived not again until the 1,000 years were finished (Revelation 20 11-15). Torment of Hades is now emptied at the end of Christ's reign. They appear before the Great White Throne Judgment, then to Hell (Gehenna). Diagram 7 was only inserted to give the reader an overall view of the resurrections of the saved and lost as they relate to their respective places. It must be noted that there is no...

Commentary On Diagram

Please take a moment and view Diagram 3. The first few days immediately following the resurrection, Christ did something which is rarely mentioned, which makes it possible for the Christian to now go to Heaven. Let me restate, the Old Testament saved never went to Heaven, but to Paradise in Sheol. In the Old Testament, sins were never taken away, but only covered. This is the meaning of the Old testament word atonement, as a covering. Atonement is not a New Testament word, since our sins are no...

Final Analysis

Satan would like nothing better than to convince you that Hell does not exist. That it is just imaginary and a scare tactic used by churches and religious people to frighten you to go to church. With all the imaginations and jokes put aside, we find from God's Word that Hell is a real, literal place. Call it a scare tactic if you want, but nevertheless, it still exists. Since we have already looked at the theological aspect of Hell, Sheol, and Hades, the temporary and Gehenna, the permanent...

Hell In The Old And New Testament

The word Hell appears in the Old Testament approximately 31 times and, without exception, is translated from the Hebrew word Sheol. This same Hebrew word is also translated pit three different times. Pit, translated from Sheol, is found in Numbers 16 30,33 and Job 17 16. Hell is referred to as a pit three times, both being the same place. Sheol is not the grave. A mistranslation--Sheol is also translated as grave approximately 25 times in the Old Testament, which has caused much confusion...

The Book Of Life

The Book of Life has recorded in it the name of every person ever born. In other words, everyone has an equal opportunity. When a person receives Christ as Saviour, their name will remain in the Book of Life forever. When the lost die without Christ, their name is blotted out of the Book of Life. Therefore, the Book of Life is an indictment and conviction upon the lost that their sentence to the Lake of Fire is fair and justified. In Revelation 20 15 we are told And whosoever was not found...
