What happens when you die

Saul, Samuel and the witch of En dor: Did Saul speak with the dead?

One of the most common questions about the Bible is about Israel’s first king.  King Saul began his reign humbly and faithfully but unfortunately it ended in disaster.  At the end of Saul’s life, the Bible records in 1 Samuel 28 that Saul consulted a medium, who apparently brought up the prophet Samuel back from the dead.  Here is a question for many followers of Christ.  Do witches and mediums… Read More »Saul, Samuel and the witch of En dor: Did Saul speak with the dead?

Understanding 1 Peter 3:18-20: Did Jesus preach to spirits in hades or hell?

One of the most misunderstood verses in the Bible is found in 1 Peter 3:18-20 which says “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.”

What does this verse mean?  Did Jesus preach to spirits in hades or hell?  Or did He preach to fallen angels?  Or does this verse mean something completely different?  Read More »Understanding 1 Peter 3:18-20: Did Jesus preach to spirits in hades or hell?

Freedom From Fear – What happens when we die?

Benjamin Franklin once said “nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes”. I’d respectfully like to add to his list of certainties the love of God and His promises that are sure! Now with a more full list of things that are certain in this life we unfortunately know all to well about taxes… but what happens when we die? Should we be afraid of death and what has happened or will happen to our loved ones who have passed away? Can we have peace and comfort in this area of uncertainty? And does it really matter what we know and believe in regards to this subject?

Today we will discover from the Bible yes it does matter if we know the truth. The Bible says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”1. A lack of knowledge in this subject will be the downfall for many of God’s people in the last days but knowing the truth about death will bring us comfort, give us peace and draw us closer to Jesus. Jesus said, “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”2

Let’s build our foundation on the rock today. Can we be free from fear even when facing death? Let’s discover what the Bible has to say.
