otherwise you'll be punished in afterlife
The corrupt and evil Jesuit conspiring Roman Catholicism took hell and heaven out of context. Heaven is not a place you go when you die and neither is
hell, but they are literal places. (ie: the heavens, the universe, the sky, etc.) The Bible actually seems to indicate that when you die that is it.
You cease cognitive function and that is that. Sheol is a place that souls rest until their resurrection from Christ. It is neither good nor bad from
what it seems. The actual judgments take place in the future after the Second Coming and all men will face Yah and Yahushua in judgment. Catholics
used these Scriptures in a time that many people looked to Roman Catholic Churches for guidance and authority of Scripture to keep in power. Its a
twisted thing but nonetheless it happened. There will be a Tribulation in the near future to test the End Times populace, and then Christ will return
and all men will eventually be judged. So no the popular idea that the corrupt evil Church put out is not correct. Think again.
Psalm 6:5 "For in death there is no remembrance of You: in the grave who shall give You thanks?"
Ecclesiastes 9:10 "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave,
where you go."
The Bible is actually in agreement with scientific knowledge, but remember Yah can alter things by miracles as natural as it is for us to blink. After
all in Daniel it says:
Daniel 12:4 "But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be
This is clear.
Job 26:7 "He stretches out the north over the empty place (or space), and hangs the earth on nothing
Zechariah 12:1 "The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, said the LORD, which stretches forth the heavens
, and lays the foundation of the
earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.
Job 38:31 "Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?"
Job 9:9 "Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south."
The heavens are expanding and many Scriptures point this out. Look at the constellations of Orion and Canis Major. It doesn't spark your mind that
they are so perfectly put there that it is hard to see it as a coincidence or the human mind seeing meaning in nothing?
