IMMORTALITY OF THE SOUL
A young man that has heard some of my teachings contacted me to tell me of some information and a video that was sent to him about some people that supposedly had died and gone to hell or heaven. They were now back and explaining to others exactly what they heard and saw. This is what I explained to the young man.
- Son, don’t allow the delusions of a few people to deceive you. The Bible says that in the last days much of the church would be turned from truth to fables 2 Timothy 4:4
- The Bible adding to this says that in these last days Satan will deceive the whole world. Revelation 12:9
- What is death according to the Bible? Ecclesiastes 9:5: It says, “The Living know that they shall die but the dead know not anything...” Six verse goes on to say, “Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.”
Just in what I have written above gives you the answer to truth but I will add a little detail. It was that same Satan that scripture says will deceive the whole world, who began a group of lies in the Garden of Eden. Here was that conversation.
GENESIS CHAPTER 3
1 ¶ Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
If you noticed the lie he told and the trick he used on the woman.
(a) You won’t really die or really be dead
(b) This would mean you are an immortal soul
(c) He claimed some special wisdom for those believing him.
Notice he called God a lie about death; He next says you are an immortal soul when scripture says the soul is created natural. 1 Corinthians 15: 45 through 47. He is also claiming that everyone is immortal and therefore all have eternal life. It is just a matter of where they will spend it as many now say. Scripture says again, that “God only has immortality.” 1 Timothy 6:16
With one all encompassing lie; he changed everything in the minds of men. This lie changes even the nature and personality of God. It creates an image of a God that does not exist. A God that would bring you to life without your consent, claiming he is giving you a choice to choose life by obeying him or death by disobeying him; then this new God will torture you billion and billions of years without end.
Satan has confused people about Scriptural doctrine. The Bible says that what you earn for sinning (wages of sin) is death. Too many churches say no, what you are paid is everlasting torture. If someone believes the doctrine that torture is the punishment for sin. They should understand that no one has paid that penalty for your sin, NOT EVEN CHRIST.
Let none of these demon inspired delusions cause you to disagree with God. As scripture says, “Let God be true and every man a liar, so that you can be justified in what you say and might overcome when you are judged.”
