Death, Hell, and the Grave   

  What happens when we die, is death the end or do we have a final resting place? 


What happens when we die? Are you judged immediately and enter Heaven/Hell?

Immediately upon death, every human being consciously arrives in either a literal Heaven or Hell. Hebrews 9:27 tells us that“it is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgment”. Where one spends eternity depends upon his decision to either accept or reject God’s free gift of salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ. II Corinthians 5:6 explains that the soul of the born-again Christian is ushered into the presence of the Lord at death while Luke 16:23 tells us that others arrive “…in Hell…being in torment”. A multitude of verses in the Scriptures confirm these facts.

There are three separate times that people will be raised from the dead.

The first time is at the Rapture. This is found in I Thessalonians 4:13-18. This will include all of those that have died during the Church age that believed on Christ and accepted Him as their Savior. This happens just before the Tribulation.

The next event is called the First Resurrection in Revelation 20:4-6. This includes the Old Testament saints as well as those who accepted Christ during the Tribulation and were killed by the antichrist for their faith.

The Second Resurrection is spoken of in Revelation 20:11-15. This will encompass all of the people who rejected Christ throughout all the ages. They will be resurrected to face the judgment for their sins.

Drugs, Drinking, Witchcraft and beyond.......

What is wrong with doing drugs?

What does the bible say about it ? 
Five times the Bible uses the word sorcery or witchcraft but that is an incorrect interpretation. In the Greek it’s pharmakeia. Recognize it? You see it over every drug store, pharmacy. So put drugs wherever you see the word sorcery or witchcraft these five instances. Revelation 18:23, the whole world is hooked on drugs. Revelation 9:21, they wouldn’t repent of their drugs. Revelation 21:8 and 22:15 and Galatians 5:19-21, they are all lost eternally because they used drugs on which to get high.

Food, Gluttony, Holiness oh My ? 


This is a personal one for me, since I am a big girl and I have been since I was about 6 years old.
Someone told me , oh you eat because you don't love yourself, or you are so big because you sit and eat all day long and you do not know how to quit eating. A good friend of mine told me that. Wow. I was shocked as well.

In the World not just in the United States we as a people can be found eating anything from a chickens breast to a frogs leg, or even a bulls testicle. So how can it be that eating pork alone is bad? Is is possible that how we eat, why we eat and what we are eating is more of the concern regarding our temple (your body) ? 

After doing a self examination I realized just like with anything else.  Without being educated and aware of what we eat, we do not know the damage it can cause. Some people can eat a whole pizza and go running and work it off.
Well if you are already healthy, the US average size etc. Amen.

For those that want scriptures and an in depth look at how gluttony can be overcome. Read further, then pray and ask the Lord to work with you personally. Don't worry about what other's have to say. Even when you loose the weight they will still talk about you. As a God fearing, JESUS is my savior, I know He died for my sins and rose on the 3rd day Christian.
I believe you can eat just about anything you choose, but let God guide you in all things. Even in what you eat.
If you ask Him, He will show you. If you seek Him concerning what you are eating. He will bring the resources your way to eat better, healthier etc. It is a long process but it can be done. So if you are not convicted right now or feel you are all good, don't let this portion offend you. However, for those that are asking Lord am I over doing it, should I cut out some things. 

Here is where He lead me. I am still reading, studying and learning so please feel free to share if you have any tips.


Someone may ask, Since we will get new bodies after we are Ruptured, why are the dead in Christ going to come back for theirs or why should we take care of the bodies we have?

First let's look at 2 Corinthians 5:8 says, …to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. What leaves the body? The spirit, as the body without the spirit is dead, James 2:26 . Now, the dead in Christ rise first and then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air. So it’s not a matter of them coming back for that purpose. They are already in the ground. The spirit is in heaven. The spirit comes to be reunited with the body and they come out of the grave and we go up with them so we are all there at one time. And the reason for bodies is that they are going to reign on earth and you’ve got to have a body to be seen.

God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit ? 

You may not believe that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one. This FAQ is bases solely on the Holy Bible and what I personally believe. 


Who is God ? 

God is the all knowing and all seeing being, Who created the Heavens and the Earth. He is the Father of all living things and the Creator of the Universe. He is a Sovereign God who sits High and looks low. He is Omniscient, and Omni present. He is the first in the God hear of the Holy Trinity.

Who is Jesus ?

Jesus is the Son of the true and Living God. He is the resurrected Savior and direct lineage to our salvation. He became sin for us. God himself became flesh and dwelt among His creation. He redeemed us once and for all as the last blood sacrifice ever needed.
It is only by the blood of Jesus, you can be redeemed, from  Death, Hell, and the Grave. Romans 4:25-5:2

Who is the Holy Spirit ? 
ACTS 2:1

The Holy Spirit, is the 3rd part of the Holy Trinity. He is a part of God himself  in the Form of a Spirit. Not a spook or a Ghost as some would consider it because it can not be seen. However,  the Holy Spirit is a person. This does not mean there are three God's in one. This means that there is one God with 3 functions.

The Holy Spirit knows the Mind of God and reveals it unto us.  2 Corinthians 2:11
The Holy Spirit 

God - Elohim 
Jesus- God himself in Flesh, the Savior
Holy Spirit- The promise and our Helper. Which allowed God to forever seal His people and help us "Live" the way he intended.

The sin against the Holy Spirit is an offense against a divine personality, and it has eternal consequences (Matt. 12:31-32).

The Purpose of the Holy Spirit

Heaven and Earth - Thy Kingdom Come

What is the Kingdom of Heaven ? 

Why is the Kingdom of God so important ? 

What will be the New Heaven and New Earth ? 

Revelation 4:1, and we go up in the twinkling of an eye, 1 Corinthians 15:52, we got there by grace, not by works. So it has nothing to do concerning works for any human being. And that’s why Ephesians 2:8 and 9 says, ”For by grace are ye saved through faith, that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works.

Now when we are raptured, our entire lifetime is investigated. We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ that every one of us may receive the things done in his body according to that he hath done, II Corinthians 5:10.

But we don’t lose salvation. There are going to be many there who are ashamed because of the way they lived on earth. Little children abide in Christ, that when He shall appear, we may have confidence and not be ashamed, ashamed before Him at his coming. That’s I John 2:28. I repeat. So now we have our new bodies and the holy city begins to descend from the third heaven to the second heaven where it remains for a thousand years, and we live there all as believers, and on the earth are those Christians who got saved during the tribulation hour. But nothing has to do with works. It’s all grace.

What Language did He speak ? 
He spoke Arabic 
Aramaic is a Semitic language belonging to the Afroasiatic language family. Within this family, Aramaic belongs to the Semitic subfamily, and more specifically, is a part of the Northwest Semitic group of languages, which also includes Canaanite languages such as Hebrew and Phoenician. Aramaic script was widely adopted for other languages and is ancestral to both the Arabic and Hebrew alphabets.

Spoken in Iran, Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey
Region Throughout the Middle East, Europe and America.


Did Jesus Live in Egypt ? 
Making assumptions only he was in Egypt for 10-12 years. He was in the synagogue at the age of 12. His family fled to Egypt to escape Herod. Herod had ordered that all males aged 2 and under be killed. Thus one can assume that Jesus was at the oldest 2 when he fled to Egypt. So he lived there for at least 10 years and at most 12 years.

Mary's Mother
Mary's Father 

Joseph Mother 
Joseph Father - Heli 

The Bible tells us David's wife Bathsheba had 4 sons, 2 of whom were Nathan and Solomon:-

1Ch 3:5 ...[David's]wife Bathsheba, daughter of Ammiel, bore him four sons: Shimea, Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon.

Solomon became king, and among his descendants was Joseph, (the husband of Mary the mother of Jesus, and Jesus' stepfather); his genealogy is given in Matthew chapter 1:-

Mat 1:7 [Good News Bible] From David to the time when the people of Israel were taken into exile in Babylon, the following ancestors are listed: David, Solomon (his mother was the woman who had been Uriah's wife [ie Bathsheba]), Rehoboam, Abijah, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, Manasseh, Amon, Josiah, and Jehoiachin and his brothers.


Mat 1:12 From the time after the exile in Babylon to the birth of Jesus, the following ancestors are listed: Jehoiachin, Shealtiel, Zerubbabel, Abiud, Eliakim, Azor, Zadok, Achim, Eliud, Eleazar, Matthan, Jacob, and Joseph, who married Mary, the mother of Jesus, who was called the Messiah.


Regarding these genealogies in Matthew and Luke, Dr William Smith says in 'Smith's Bible Dictionary' (1884) in the article 'Genealogy of Jesus Christ', that:-


"1. They are both the genealogies of Joseph, that is, of Jesus Christas the reputed and legal son of Joseph and Mary. 2. The genealogy of St. Matthew is Joseph's genealogy as legal successor to the throne of David. St. Luke's is Joseph's private Genealogy, exhibiting his real birth as David's son, and thus, showing why he was heir to Solomon's crown. The simple principle that one evangelist exhibits that genealogy which contained the successive heir to David's and Solomon's throne, while the other exhibits the paternal stem of him who was the heir, explains all the anomalies of the two pedigrees, their agreements as well as their discrepancies, and the circumstance of there being two at all. 3. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was in all probability the daughter of Jacob, and first cousin to Joseph, her husband. ... (Godet, Lange and many others take the ground that St. Luke gives the genealogy of Mary, rendering Luk_3:23thus: Jesus"being (as was suppposed), the son of Joseph, (but, in reality), the son of Heli." In this case, Mary, as declared in the Targums, was the daughter of Heli, and Heli was the grandfather of Jesus. Mary's name was omitted because "ancient sentiment did not comport with the mention of the mother as the genealogical link." So we often find in the Old Testament, the grandson called the son. This ... shows that Jesuswas not merely the legal but the actual descendant of David; and it would be very strange that in the gospel accounts, where so much is made of Jesusbeing the son and heir of David and of his kingdom [that] his real descent from David should not be given. ).

In keeping with God’s purpose for the Church we understand the church is the platform for change in a 

* If someone takes the Global ID and/or the Mark of the Beast in the hand or forehead, can they be forgiven by God?

This world leader comes to power in 2nd Thessalonians 2 verses 6 and onward and he says: hey, take the mark. It’ll be the way to protect you so we can take you to the hospital and it will protect you from terrorists and they believe the lie and because of it they are all doomed and damned. Look at 2nd Thessalonians 2:11 -12 – and because they’ve received it, Revelation 14:11 says, the smoke of their torment ascended up forever and ever and they have no rest day or night.


The Club of Rome

The Bilderburgs, in 1954, had the idea to create the United States of Europe and that has become the European Union (E.U.) and they are up to 27 nations. Greece joined the union in 1981. Now keep in mind Greece was the place where most of our Biblical history was born (I.e language Greek) .  

Daniel 7:23. But the Bible also says that at the end there is going to be ten. So the Club of Rome, another secret organization, said we will divide the whole world into ten divisions, here is the said Ten-division global empire.

  1. America, Canada and Mexico

  2. South America

  3. Australia and New Zealand

  4. Western Europe

  5. Eastern Europe

  6. Japan

  7. South Asia

  8. Central Asia

  9. North Africa and all the Middle East

Most confessing Christians do not believe there will be a Rapture. Most feel that we all must go through the tribulation. Let's review the word of God and you can decide for yourself. This is a question that is often asked so we feel we should address it.

What is the Rapture ? 

How will I be affected as a believer or a non believer ? 

After the Rapture, will those left behind have an opportunity to accept Christ? 
Yes. Revelation 7:4-8, says there are 144,000  preachers and they are going to be preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, 
as well Matthew 24:14, says the King is coming. And the Bible says a number like the sand of the sea, innumerable, are coming out of the Tribulation washed in the Blood of the Lamb.  Acts
2:19 adds, at that hour whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 

Who will be taken the in Rapture ? 
All believers will go, anyone who’s trusted in Jesus.  I John 2:28

Will the born-again Christians who are out of fellowship with God and those who are lukewarm or carnal be caught up in the Rapture?

When we receive Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, our sins are forgiven and washed away (I John 1:7). Romans 8:1 says: "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Our sins are not held against us although there is a reckoning time for Christians called the Judgment Seat of Christ. Romans 14:12 and II Corinthians 5:10 will shed further light on the Judgment Seat. Notice I Corinthians 3, verse 15: "If any man's work shall be burned he shall suffer loss..." Everything that we have done in the body shall pass through a proving fire. The works that were good will not burn, like silver, gold or diamonds. The works that were not for the Lord will burn, like wood, hay and stubble. Even if our works all burn up into a pile of ashes, "...but he himself shall be saved yet so as by fire." This verse proves that sin is not held against us, but we still have to give account for what we have done. We may suffer loss of rewards (see also Ecclesiastes 12:14 ).

The Bible is clear in its teaching that only the saved stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Those who have not been faithful will be ashamed. I John 2:28 states: "And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming." The message is to the little children, those who are born again or saved. These are in danger of being ashamed before the Lord at His coming but not cast out.

The Judgment Seat of Christ takes place immediately upon His coming. You will note from Revelation 20:5 that lost people are not resurrected until after the Millennium, after the resurrection of the saved and the Judgment Seat of Christ. We can rest assured that the teaching of the Bible will not give comfort to those who do not want to give up their sins. The true Biblical teaching of the Judgment Seat of Christ should call Christians to a dedicated and holy life because of the wonderful rewards that will be theirs at that time.

The Great White Throne Judgment is described in Revelation 20:11-15. This judgment is only for unbelievers. The unsaved dead are resurrected from the temporary Hell (Hades), stand before God to be judged out of the books mentioned in Revelation 20:12, hear that their names are not found in the book of Life because they have never received Christ, and are cast ALIVE into the permanent Hell known as the Lake of Fire (Gehenna) to be eternally tormented and separated from God.

 The Bible says it’s appointed once to die, but in the Rapture we don’t die we are changed. Why?

First of all there are two people there now in bodies because they did not die, Enoch, Genesis 5:24, and Elijah, II Kings 2:11, caught up by a whirlwind into heaven. Everyone else had to die because as the body without the spirit is dead, James 2:26 . Now, at the Rapture, Christ is the first fruits of the resurrection and he’s there in a glorified body. Not in a regular body like the other two, but a glorified body. Now, the next thing is we are caught up, he is the first fruits, and then they which are Christ’s at his coming appear at the Rapture and we are the only generation in history that will go to glory without death. That’s why it’s the blessed hope, a happy hope, Titus 2:1

Why do so many Christians ignore Matthew 25 and the warnings of what will happen to those who did not watch for our Lord’s Return?

 God says in Revelation 3:15-17 (New International Version)

15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

That’s the Greek word emeo which means :

  1. to vomit, vomit forth, throw up

Satan - The Devil- Demons what about them ? 

Satan is not the opposite of God. He is no where near God. Let's first clear that up. Since he is pretty much the only person we hear about the most. People often get him confused with being in opposition to God. He is a created being. God created him.So you say in your mind, like I did. Well how in the world is he able to cause all of this havoc in the Earth? 

We must start from what I consider the top. Short version
God made man in His image
Satan convinces Eve to take of the fruit (bible does not say apple) . 
Eve and Adam sinned (against God their creator). 
Through their sin, vulnerability, and delusion, satan gained control over the world.
After God clothed them, and removed them from the Garden of Eden, they went on and replenished the earth.
(I know you say well if Cain killed Abel, how or where did we all come from why was it okay for Adam and Eve's children to have sex with each other since they were the only ones on the earth at that time right? )
Answer:  Click here 
Satan plotted and planned to reign over the earth forever, and it would have worked if God allowed Adam and Eve to stay in the Garden of Eden and eat from the tree of everlasting life.  (Keep in mind God is omniscient) 

I know, you wonder well if God knew satan was going to do what he did, why did God allow it.
Here is my favorite love story. I love to tell the story of God's love for us.

God loved us so much, you can me before we were even born. That He wanted us to himself, and chose to come down in the form of flesh , to save His own creation. We are the only beings that He has created with a soul and in His image. He gave us Dominion over the earth and through Him we have access to His throne by faith.

How did Satan Get Kicked out of Heaven ? 

Satan was cast out of the Third Heaven where God rules – II Corinthians 12:2 he took up his abode in heavens one and two and took a third of the fallen angels with him in Revelation 12:4 and they’ve been ruling the heavens with him Ephesians 2:2 and Ephesians 6:12.
