If you agree with God's way of life, through experience prooving it over time, you are ressurected to immortal spiritual life as Jesus Christ before
you (achieve salvation). If you willingly choose to continue thinking in opposition to God's way of thinking, you will not be allowed to have life
again (achieve damnation). You will cease to exist in any form forever. But this choice will be free to make, after God has perfectly prooven all
factors needed to justly determine the mind of each individual human being.
Only those who fear death create and employ such fictions.
What an incredibly foolish statement.
Millions of Christians have died because they would not deny the name of Jesus Christ.
But I assure you, you're going to fear death with that mentality. Wait till it sets in.
Jesus Christ did not fear death, but willingly went into death. And so many have also followed Him into death. Did they do it because they were
afraid of death?
What a foolish statement, I say again.
They did it because they love their Lord. Fear is not of the Lord; fear is of Satan. And therefore, I am able to perceive the amount of trembling
possessing you whenever your end is met.
But what good is that? It's sad. Very sad.
When we die, we go into the grave. And there is no remembrance in the grave. The worms indeed eat your body, and it goes everywhere, and it rots.
And there is nothing. No memory; nothing.
But everyone will be resurrected, indeed. In fact, some won't even die. Some will simply change.
Now the question of this thread is more interested in trying to consciously recreate what cannot be consciously known with our living spirits; neither
does sleep really imitate death very well.
You see, we only have eternity in our hearts. As God said, He put eternity in our hearts. We are unable to see anything besides eternity. We don't
understand an "end all". It's incomprehensible.
Well, the reason for that is because God is never-ending, beginning to end. If our creator made us in His image, therefore, we can not reasonably
understand something that does not exist for us, as being alive.
But... those that are dead, something is revealed to them that is not revealed to anyone else.
Absence of existence.
This is called corruption. It's a place God went in the form of Jesus Christ. He went and He conquered that place. So He even has the keys to
And yet, He is even greater than that.
For He created a place where these aspects of eternity could be place into eternal destruction.
For He will throw death and hell into the lake of fire. (This is no normal lava flow). The lake of fire is a place God has prepared to destroy
aspects of eternity.
Like our souls, which cannot at the moment understand an "end all". But some will learn what that end-all is.
It is a place that exists outside of God. And since all things currently exist within God, this is a crazy place indeed. It's farfetched. It's
called "outer darkness". The place is reserved, but it has not yet manifest because it does not yet have its first visitor. It will, however, when
the false prophet and the man of sin are both cast into the lake of fire, to have their eternal aspects destroyed. And they will be the first
visitors to a place that the fallen angels and also the wicked men and women will also inhabit that place.
For as of yet, nothing has been destroyed. Not a single thing. All things are still possessed within God.
But there are some that are already appointed to that second death.
And that second death is greater than the first. Because the eternal aspects must be cast into something capable of destroying their ability to live.
How can God kill that which is eternal?
This is something we cannot comprehend, except for with metaphor. We haven't gone there. God has only created the door to the place; but cannot
enter therein, for God cannot be outside of Himself, which encompasses all things.
Oh yes, the brain will stretch. The spirit will fear greatly. That God has the power to create a destructive fire, a door, to a place which He
Himself cannot even enter.
And those therein can never comeback. It is sealed. The destruction is sealed.
The smoke of their torment rises up for ever and ever.
There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Of which there has not been any yet. But soon.
You should be able to understand this much:
It's the worst possible thing that can happen to you. There is nothing worse. Think of the worst thing you can think of. Think of the picture of
that basketball player's leg bone sticking out, combined with the terror of a million tarantulas, all happening while falling from space into the
center of a volcano, with a baby. Now multiply by infinity.
