SCRIPTURAL PROOFS OF THE CONTINUED PERSONAL CONSCIOUSNESS AFTER PHYSICAL DEATH

The Old Testament holy people are envisioned as being "assembled to their kin" after physical demise (see Gen. 25:8; 35:29; 49:29,33; Num. 20:24,26; 27:13; 31:2; Deut. 32:48-50): To be assembled to other individuals has neither rhyme nor reason, and no importance, in the event that it just alludes to going into an oblivious condition of being. To be assembled to their kin talks about being combined in a social way.

His kid having passed on, David expected to in the end go to his child (see II Sam. 12:13-23): If he had expected to go into an oblivious state, he would have had no such expectation. David completely expected to see his child on the opposite side of the vale of physical demise. David's words, "I will go to him, yet he will not come back to me," show that he didn't have the expectation of restoration at the top of the priority list, however to join his child after he kicked the bucket. Together they would anticipate the restoration while appreciating each other's conversation.

Samuel's appearance to Saul and the lady of Endor (see I Sam. 28:3-20): King Saul was hit with dread over a coming fight with the Philistines, and the Lord God was overlooking his petitions for direction. He turned out to be so terrified and upset that he searched out a warlock in a frantic exertion to contact Samuel, the withdrew prophet, who had in better occasions been his otherworldly advocate. It was a horrible stun to this lady when God enabled Samuel to really seem to convey a prophetic message from the Lord to Saul. Most likely she either intended to deceive Saul or expected a devil taking on the appearance of Saul to show up. Adding to her dread was the acknowledgment that the man who had gone to her with an end goal to speak with Samuel was really King Saul, who had a notoriety for killing mediums like her. In his appearance Samuel had an unmistakable human structure and had the option to carry on a discussion with Saul. His grievance about being troubled (upset) shows that he was dwelling in a condition of cognizant joy that was hindered with the end goal for him to show up. That it is said he was brought "up" rather then brought "back" shows that he was living in the lower portions of the earth. We accept that he was in Abraham's Bosom, or Paradise, which around then was situated in the core of the earth in a spot called Sheol, or Hades (see the Repentant Thief on the Cross underneath).

The Calling of Lazarus from the Grave (John 11:1-46): Although the "how" is outside our ability to grasp, the way that Lazarus reacted to the Lord Jesus Christ's order to "approach" from the grave addresses us of the proceeded with cognizant presence of the spirit following physical passing.

The Repentant Thief on the Cross (Luke 23:32-34, 39-43): As they held tight their individual crosses, one of the criminals who was killed with Him went to Jesus with a contrite heart saying, "Master, recollect me when thou comest into thy realm". Christ's reaction was to state, "Verily I state unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise" (see Luke 23:39-43). We realize that at the hour of His demise the Lord Jesus plunged to the "heart of the earth" where He remained for three days and three evenings (Matt. 12:40) "and lectured the spirits in jail" (I Pet. 3:19). This reveals to us that up to the hour of Christ's penance for the transgressions of the world, "Heaven" was in the core of the earth. He guaranteed the contrite criminal they would be as one in Paradise that very day. This is a similar spot that is alluded to as Abraham's Bosom in Luke 16:22. From II Corinthians we realize that Paradise is currently situated in "the third paradise" (see II Cor. 12:1-4). Clearly this homestead the spared dead was moved from the deepest parts, or the heart, of the earth to the glorious home God. Heaven is where the spirits of the reclaimed dwell anticipating the revival. Before the cost of their recovery was paid on the cross, it was situated in the core of the earth. Yet, after the full installment was made, it was migrated to the third paradise, or the Heaven of sky, where God is. There they sit tight in God's essence for the hour of their restoration. The spirits of the entirety of the reclaimed who have passed on since Jesus Christ's restoration have gone into God's quality there as to be "missing from the body" is to be "available with the Lord" (see II Cor. 5:6-8).

Jesus Christ's Direct Teaching that Departed Saints are Alive (see Matt. 22:23-32): Using a speculative circumstance, the Sadducees tested the Lord Jesus concerning the revival of the dead, which was something that they didn't have faith in. The Lord reversed the situation on them, however, by uncovering their numbness about the subject. First He clarified that in the restoration, marriage would not be a thought. He at that point proceeded to face them on a significant issue concerning the holy people who have encountered physical passing. He realized that the Sadducees not just precluded a strict revival from claiming the dead, yet in addition even prevented the proceeded with presence from claiming the individual after death. To uncover their mistake, the Lord cited God's words to Moses at the consuming shrubbery, "I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob" (Ex. 3:6). Despite the fact that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had kicked the bucket many years before the hour of Moses, God utilized the current state "I am" instead of the past tense "I was" when distinguishing Himself to Moses as their God. This shows they were existing in a cognizant state around then. The Lord Jesus' comment, in the current state, that "God isn't the God of the dead, however of the living" (Matt. 22:32) uncovers that they were still alive as He talked, nearly 1500 years after the fact. Being alive shows a proceeded with cognizant presence. On the off chance that this was valid before the Cross, it is without a doubt valid for adherents on this side of the cross.

The Appearance of Moses and Elijah on the Mount of Transfiguration (Luke 9:28-36): It could be contended that Elijah couldn't be held up for instance in light of the fact that, somewhat then experiencing the typical experience of physical passing, he was up to speed into paradise in an irregular way (II Kings 2:11). Notwithstanding, despite the fact that it was under one of a kind conditions, there is no uncertainty that Moses endured physical demise and his body was covered (Deut. 34:5-6). Moses, with Elijah, showed up on the mountain after Jesus Christ was briefly celebrated before the eyes of Peter, John, and James. They showed up in a conspicuous structure and it is explicitly expressed that they talked with the Lord about His looming demise. This occasion uncovers the proceeded with cognizant attention to the individuals who have left this life. That Moses and Elijah talked with Christ about His flight, which was going to occur at Jerusalem, affirms their proceeded with capacity to think, recollect, and impart. We don't have a record of precisely what Moses and Elijah addressed the Lord Jesus about concerning the passing He would pass on, however there can be little uncertainty that their discussion focused on what might be cultivated through the penance of Himself for the transgressions of the world. He would satisfy the predictions about Himself found in Moses and the Prophets (cf. Luke 24:25-26,44-48).

That Jesus Christ Will Bring the Departed Grace Believers with Him from Heaven at the Time of the Rapture of the Church (I Thess. 4:13-18): Those who have passed on physically are by and by in paradise as their body "rests" in the grave. Coming back with Christ from paradise (v. 14) when He wants His Church, they will get their celebrated bodies first (vv. 15-16) and afterward those as yet living will get theirs as they are up to speed to be with the Lord (v. 17; cf. I Cor. 15:51-54). That Christ will carry them from paradise with Him must imply that they are first in paradise with Him.

The Martyred Saints of the Tribulation (Rev. 6:9-11; 7:9-10,14): While the adherents who will kick the bucket for their confidence in Christ during the Tribulation are especially singled around here, it must be recollected that their status is that of Kingdom holy people. In other words that they would like to go into Christ's Millennial Kingdom alongside the entirety of the other Kingdom holy people. Their experience of being martyred during the Tribulation will be extraordinary to the time in which they will live beyond words, they will have a similar general any desire for the entirety of the Old Testament holy people. That they are found in paradise in the wake of having kicked the bucket shows that the entirety of the Kingdom holy people who have gone before them are there too. That they are imagined as requesting that the Lord deliver judgment on the earth demonstrates that they are envisioning coming back with Him to get their legacy in His Kingdom (see Jude 14-15; Rev. 19:14-16). These martyred Kingdom holy people, and all the others, who will go with the Lord when He comes back to earth, are clearly holding up in paradise until the delegated time. That they are explicitly said to wear robes and bowing before the special raised area in paradise discloses to us not just that they will keep on existing in a condition of cognizance after death, yet in addition, that they will have a conspicuous human structure.

APPLICATION FOR TODAY

The between dispensational rule that we gain from the narrative of the rich man and Lazarus is that it is just in this life that any man or lady has the chance to be accommodated to God. For the individuals who bite the dust in unbelief, there is no additional opportunity and there is nobody to intercede for their sake. To pass on without Christ is to be isolated from God everlastingly, first in the torments of Hades lastly in the Lake of Fire. As devotees, this should move us with sympathy for the lost and invigorate us to utilize each mean accessible to declare the Gospel of Grace as far and wide as could reasonably be expected.

We likewise gain from this story that adherents quickly go into a superior spot when they leave this life at the hour of physical passing. Realizing this is genuine gives expectation and solace both to adherents who are confronting demise and to those they desert in this life.

Earthquakes, Hurricanes and the Midpoints - Uranian Astrology

On Tuesday, August 23rd, a quake with a size of 5.8 happened in Richmond VA at 1:51PM, EDT. This tremor was felt in 22 states. Monday evening, August 22, at 11:46PM, MDT, (1:46 am, EDT) a 5.3 tremor struck Denver, CO, only 12 hours before east coast seismic tremor.

As a crystal gazer I went to my PC in the wake of hearing what occurred and as a uranian celestial prophet, I moved everything to my 90 degree dial. The image was completely clear, Mars was squaring Zeus and both were at the midpoint of Saturn and the Admentos hub. This planetary picture converts into "the earth burped". It is ideal that the earth didn't flatulate simultaneously or we would have been in a tough situation. Mars Zeus is to touch off, and the Saturn Admentos vitality made a bottleneck. This planetary picture deciphers an activity or action that causes impossible challenges. Another planetary blend happening simultaneously was the Uranus/Admetos midpoint which approached the cardinal hub/Neptune.
