Where will I open my eyes minutes after I Die?
My Spirit Filled Friend, I see you @ The Rapture & My Unsaved Friend I see you at the White throne Judgment! Pastor Dirk, Please explain your Statement!
As you know by now, TruLight Radio XM is all about Bible Prophecy, getting ready for the End Times and Bible Truth!
AND there is one more Truth that we need to Deal with, it’s been lying heavily on my heart.
The Misconception of People in Heaven and Hell right now!
I think it’s important to deal with this aspect from a Biblical Point of View and for us to receive this Truth sooner than later!
People tend to say: as soon as a loved one dies, that he or she is with Jesus in Heaven.
This is not correct and not according to the Bible!
Joh 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
“I will come again, and receive you unto myself”
When will this be?
At the Second Coming of Jesus and during the Rapture!
As Jesus Ascended to Heaven Angels appeared to the Disciples and said!
Act 1:9-11 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
We see, both Jesus and the Angels Confirmed, We will see Him return from Heaven at His 2nd Coming AND will be Collected at the Rapture just before the Battle of Armageddon!
Paul Confirms This
1Th 4:13-18 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
People will Argue this verses in the Bible about Lazarus and the Rich Man in Heaven and Hell, Please note that this was a Parable that Jesus used to explain! And not the fact of the matter!
Jesus and the Angels said, That Jesus will return like He left and Collect us to be with Him in Heaven with His Father!
Paul Says. At the 2nd Coming of Jesus, God will bring the Dead in Christ that is asleep to the 2nd Coming, Paul describe these as the once asleep!
The Dead in Christ will arise with a Voice from an archangel and with the Sound of the 7th Trumpet. And then meet Jesus in the Air; we that are still alive at that Point will then change from mortal to immortal and meet Jesus in the air with the dead in Christ.
At this Point at the Rapture , Only the Once that Died in Christ will arise from the Grave , all the Unsaved will remain in the Grave until Just before the Great White Throne Judgment , 1000 Years after the Battle of Armageddon and the day satan and his demons was bound on earth for a 1000 Years.
Rev 20:5-8 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
We need to understand that there are 3 Groups of the Dead and one person that were in the middle of the transmission period!
The 1st Group of Dead = the Saints of God.
This 1st Group was from Adam to the death of Jesus Christ! At the Death of Jesus he descended to the Place of Death and released all the dead from the stronghold of the Angel of Death and received the Keys of Hell.
He released all the Saints of God like, King David, Samuel, King Solomon, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel and more. They were freed by Jesus and Taken to Heaven,
This was all the Dead of the 1st Covenant. (The Blood Sacrifice Covenant)
Only the Prophet Daniel was left from this Group, He was included to the 3rd Group to see the Rapture of the Christians!
Dan 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
The 2nd Group of Dead = the 3 Year Ministry, Dead in Christ.
This Second Group was the Once that accepted Jesus during His 3 Year ministry on Earth, and that died in that 3 Years period and resurrected from the dead when Jesus descended to the Place of death after He died on the Cross, and released the saints of God.
He resurrected the dead in Christ from the grave as the Graves opened during the 3 hours of darkness after the death of Jesus. So everyone that accepted Christ during his 3 Years of Ministry, Lived again, as they resurrected from the graves as the graves opened!
Mat 27:50-53 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
The Thief on the Cross. The one person that died during the transition period.
One person died during this process, just after Jesus released all the dead from the Place of Death, and that was the murderer on the cross with Him, The one that Jesus told, that he will be with Jesus in Paradise that very day.
Luk 23:42-43 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
For this Thief Died after the 1st Covenant release of the Dead happened and was not included into the 1st or 2nd Group called The Saints of God or the Dead in Christ before the resurrection of Jesus Christ. And could not be Part of the 3rd Group, The Dead in Christ after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The 3rd Group = the Dead in Christ after His resurrection.
This 3rd Group , is all the Dead in Christ , That accepted Jesus Christ, That was Baptized in water and The Holy Spirit , from the Day Jesus arose from the Grave, to Present and beyond until the Rapture at the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ.
Joh 3:3-6 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
So every person that will Enter the Kingdom of Heaven from +- 36AC to Present and Beyond until the 2nd Returning of Jesus Christ, Just before the Battle of Armageddon.
This Group is not in Heaven yet and will only see Jesus at the Rapture after His 2nd Coming.
What Happens to the Unsaved?
For the Unsaved in this Group will not awake during the Rapture and remain in the Grave until the Point that satan and his demons is released 1000 years after the battle of Armageddon.
So they will remain asleep from 36 AC to a point a few days before the White Throne Judgment.
For those unsaved that is still alive during the second coming of Jesus Christ, They all will die during the Battle of Armageddon. And stay asleep for 1000 Years to be resurrected for a last time, ready for the White Throne Judgment.
Rev 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
So all the Unsaved from +- 36 AC until after the Battle of Armageddon will remain asleep. Until the day satan and his demons is release 1000 years after the Battle of Armageddon. And face the White Throne Judgment, Just before they will be caste into Hell for eternity after the judgment!
The Time Period between the Day you die and the day you open your eyes, will not even feel like 3 Minutes. It will feel like you were asleep!
For Example of somebody died in Christ in the 1800 s he or she will only wake up at the Rapture!
The Reborn baptized in Water and Spirit Filled Christians will closes his or her eyes at his or her death and open them at the Rapture to see Jesus in the Air. This will be at the same time we that is still alive during the time of the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ and the Rapture, will minutes later meet them in the Air with Jesus!
So all our Loved once that Died in Christ, and was baptized in water and Spirit will see Jesus just minutes before we will. They are not currently in Heaven. And our unsaved relatives are not currently in Hell.
The Unsaved will close their eyes at their Death and only open it up to be deceived by satan and his demons a last time to attack the Golden City , and when they arrive there , The White Throne Judgment will appear and the Judgment will take place.
As Paul said!
Wherefore comfort one another with these words. I will meet my Relatives and Friends again!
If they were saved before their Death, and you are saved, you will see them in the Air with Jesus at His 2nd Coming and the Rapture.
If they were unsaved at their death, you will see them standing in front of the White Throne Judgment, and if you are Unsaved too, you will be Joining them in front of the White Throne Judgments!
