- 3/26/23 COUNTDOWN
- Would you make any changes in your life if you knew the Rapture of the Bride of Christ was going to happen this April 9th, 2023?
Can I actually “Foretell” that the Rapture will be April 9th, 2023? No, I cannot but I can tell you the season. You need to read my book Hope for Those Left Behind for the details.
On my Bible Guy Web Site – page Movies – starting with Abraham. We have been watching the Bible Movies in order each evening: Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses…
Fear not! I am telling you this in advance so you will know that God is in control, has a plan and wants to get your attention.
SPIRITUAL DEATH LEADS TO PHYSICAL DEATH
When God breathed into Adam, he became a living being or soul. Where is your soul? What is your soul? We know that Adam’s body was made of the dust of the earth. We understand this now as the elements found in dirt are also the base of elements in our flesh bodies. When God breathed life into Adam it was God’s Life Spirit that gave physical life to Adam’s physical body. Even though this is a great mystery, God is revealing it to us through the written book of Genesis Chapter one and two! Let us take deeper look at those events.
GOD IS TRYING TO GET OUR ATTENTION!
- Adam had a physical body.
- God Breathed His Spirit into Adam.
- God’s image; the soul which is our mind, will and emotions.
- Adam had a face to face relationship with God.
- Adam disobeyed God’s instructions which separated him from the presence of God, remember Adam hid from God, because he felt shameful.
- Adam became spiritually disconnected or spiritually dead.
- God laid out the plan to be reconnected, but it will take a while; a few thousand years for Jesus to come on the scene to put things “legally” back in order.
- You and I are offspring of Adam and ‘like kind’ produces ‘like kind’, therefore we were born spiritually dead also. This is called our sin nature. It is our nature to sin (disobey God).
- Instead of living our lives according to the leading of the Spirit of God; our spirit is dead, we live our lives according to leading of our flesh. Working to feed, protect, shelter and gratify our physical bodies.
- The results of this spiritually dead lifestyle (without making a course correction) leads to physical death forever! We are born spiritually dead, working our whole life trying to stay physically alive and for some, even pampering our physical life but the Bible says: What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and loses his own soul? Mark 8:36
- Bad news; The wages of sin is death… Romans 6:23
- Good news; The wage of sin is death, BUT the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Even though we are born spiritually dead God wants us to accept His Love and He is constantly trying to get our attention through several ways.
NATURE – the amazing beauty of nature; majestic landscapes, morning sunrises and evening sunsets. Nature itself testifies of the greatness of God; planets, moons, stars and galaxies!
WRITTEN WORD – God also gave us His written Word. His written account of His creation, history, and original design for mankind. You have at your fingertips the oldest written documents in the world that have been translated into your language! We have to make the effort to read it, to search for ourselves.
MIRACLES – If we think about it, we have all seen miracles. Witnessed the supernatural. That is, we have seen or experienced things that are beyond the natural; Super-Natural if you will. This makes us ask questions, God likes your questions. Your questions are the start of your path to Him!
QUESTIONS – This may sound like cheating, but our Loving God planted within each one of us questions: Where did I come from, why am I here, and what happens when I die? I know you have at least thought about these things in your mind because you are reading this article.
PREACHERS – People like me who have witnessed the love and acceptance of God, and who have experienced firsthand becoming spiritually alive by simply believing God’s very patient plan to restore mankind back to Him through the acts of Jesus, His Son. Plus receiving Jesus personally into our lives as Savior, Lord and King! OK, I know that there are a lot of misinformed “preachers” talking today – that are motivated by greed and use religion to “control” and take advantage of people, but as a treasure hunter, we might have to dig through a lot of “fools gold” to get to the real thing. Today I hope I become a trusted voice for you, in this very fragile world.
ALLOW ME TO BRING IT HOME FOR YOU
- Life is physical and spiritual.
- We have physical life when we were born from our mother’s womb.
- Our major reasoning information comes from those around us and our five senses.
- With this reasoning we understand all things stop living (plants animals and people) and this is our understanding of death. We usually follow the thinking that natural death is when a person grows old, to a certain undetermined age, and their human functions (heart, lungs, minds) just stop.
- If a person stops living earlier than that undetermined age, we say they died before their time. We say if a person is murdered or in a life taking accident that it is a tragedy.
- ETERNITY – some kind of life after death. Even though I have had a few people tell me that their understanding of death is just a “dirt nap”. One lives, one dies and that is it. It is actually a philosophy from the days of Rome; Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. But I have personally interviewed thousands of people, mainly in the USA, and I would say 90% believe in some kind of “afterlife” and most call it some form of heaven. And many believe there are rules to get there. What you do in this life determines the next life sort of thing.
BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU?
I hope the things you have just read make some sense. I hope they have answered some of your questions. I have used the Bible and my personal experience in writing this article as my foundation and believe everything I have written. I have used the Word of God recorded in the Bible as my reference of Truth and here is what I know. The Bible itself says that it is alive, it will mess with your life, and it demands action:
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of, soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.Hebrews 4:12-13
TO OVERCOME DEATH, HOW DO WE BECOME SPIRITUALLY ALIVE?
How do we become spiritually alive, so we can know God and be “reconnected” with Him? Truth says…without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is… Hebrews 11:6
Can you see how the Bible helps you to answer and decide?
– Do YOU believe that God is? Yes, No?
Even though we were born spiritually dead Truth says … the gift of God is eternal life (spiritual life) in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
– Do you believe that YOU can have spiritual life, eternal life in Jesus? Yes, No?
When Jesus was killed on our behalf, so that we could be restored to God, God raised Him from the dead after three days in the grave and Truth says …the power which He (God) worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also int that which is to come. Ephesians 1:20-21
– Do YOU believe that God raised Jesus from the dead? Yes, No?
The journey I just took you through was a process, like when a baby is born. In this case born again. Not physical life but spiritual life. By your simple act of believing it is like taking your first breath, God breathing the life of His Spirit into YOU. Yes YOU personally! You are being born again; spiritually!
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.1 John 4:15
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
– Right now, Father God is talking to you personally through His Words that you have just read. You entered the conversation when you answered YES! Now just take a moment and speak out loud, directly to Jesus with your answers:
I do believe in God.
I do believe God raised you from the dead.
I confess with my mouth out loud; Jesus, you are my Lord and Savior.
By faith I accept Spirit Life from Father God.
I am spiritually alive in you Jesus!”
To understand death, we had to understand life.
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5:11-13
Friend in Christ, you have one amazing and exciting path ahead. I pray that our Lord will bring true followers of Jesus into your life to help you along the way.
I would also be honored if I could be one of those trusted voices in your life in this fragile world. Please click to the next exciting step!
