LIFE AFTER DEATH

1. LIFE after DEATH is the HOLY GRAIL of religion, but no two FAITHS agree on the path to eternity. For starters, let us come to terms with DEATH. The Bible says: “… THE SOUL THAT SINNETH, IT SHALL DIE” [Ezekiel 18:4] SOUL is the PERSONALITY of the SPIRIT dwelling in the BODY. The three entities are loosed when the FLESH suffers fatality, as it is written: “Or ever the SILVER CORD be loosed, or the GOLDEN BOWL be broken, …. Then shall the DUST RETURN TO THE EARTH as it was: and THE SPIRIT SHALL RETURN UNTO GOD who gave it” [Ecclesiastics 12:6-7] The SILVER CORD is LOOSED when man is pronounced clinically DEAD; GOLDEN BOWL holding the SPIRIT is broken and the SPIRIT returns to God. A man’s corpse may rot, and be riddled with worms, he is not DEAD until his SPIRIT returns to God, as it is “… appointed unto men ONCE TO DIE, but AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT” [Hebrews 9:27] DEATH is the VERDICT of SIN and the punishment is SECOND DEATH, as it is written: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the SECOND DEATH” [Revelation 21:8] If any man “DIES” in SIN, he has no part in LIFE after DEATH.

2. LIFE after DEATH is the GIFT of God and can neither be bought nor exchanged, as the Bible says: “For the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord” [Romans 6:23] The GIFT of God is God manifest in FLESH to DIE, for you and I to receive LIFE after DEATH, as it is written: … Except a CORN OF WHEAT FALL TO THE GROUND AND DIE, it abideth alone: but if it die, it BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT” [John 12:24] The CORN of wheat that fell to the ground is Jesus Christ, in who “… DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD bodily” [Colossians 2:9] Jesus DIED on the Cross, it was not near DEATH or coma and the SPIRIT returned to God, as it is written: “And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, INTO THY HANDS I COMMEND MY SPIRIT: and having said thus, HE GAVE UP THE GHOST” [Luke 23:46] When He “… ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY according to the scriptures” Jesus Christ established Himself as the SEED as the SEED that germinates to LIFE after DEATH. Regrettably, there is another SEED and the “… ENEMY THAT SOWED THEM IS THE DEVIL; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the TARES ARE GATHERED AND BURNED IN THE FIRE; so shall it be in the end of this world” [Matthew 13:39-40]

3. LIFE after DEATH is SOWN by the preaching of Jesus Christ. The GROUND is the man that receives the SEED. The SEED is fallen in your FIELD as you HEAR or READ this message. Beloved, take good care “… HOW YE HEAR: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have” [Luke 8:18] If the SEED settles in your BRAIN, it will not germinate. Why? Your BRAIN is FLESH, the SEED is SPIRIT and “… FLESH LUSTETH AGAINST THE SPIRIT, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are CONTRARY ONE TO THE OTHER” [Galatians 5:17] If you receive the WORD in FLESH you will struggle needlessly with REASON to understand the WISDOM of God and end up with corruption, “For HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH shall of the flesh REAP CORRUPTION; but HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT shall of the Spirit reap LIFE EVERLASTING” [Galatians 6:8] The SEED thrives in GOOD GROUND prepared by FAITH, as the Bible says: “But that on the GOOD GROUND are they, which in an HONEST and GOOD HEART, having HEARD THE WORD, KEEP IT, and bring forth FRUIT with PATIENCE” [Luke 8:15] GOOD GROUND are those who receive the gospel of Jesus Christ by FAITH; in an HONEST and GOOD HEART, KEEP IT and bring forth FRUIT with PATIENCE.

4. LIFE after DEATH is man re-calibrated in the image and likeness of God, as the Bible says: “Beloved, now are we the SONS OF GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is” [1 John 3:2] LIFE after DEATH excludes all limitations of nature and gender, “For in the resurrection THEY NEITHER MARRY, nor are given in marriage, BUT ARE AS ANGELS … ” [Matthew 22:30] LIFE after DEATH goes with a BODY that defies time, space and matter. We shall appear and disappear at will, as Jesus did after His resurrection and it is written: “… when the DOORS WERE SHUT where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, CAME JESUS and stood in the midst,… “ [John 20:19] We shall be transfigured in glory as Jesus did before His apostles and “… they that be wise shall SHINE AS THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE FIRMAMENT; and they that turn many to righteousness AS THE STARS FOR EVER and ever” [Daniel 12:3] Friend, LIFE after DEATH has no comparison in this dying world and : “… EYE HATH NOT SEEN, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the THINGS WHICH GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM. But God hath REVEALED THEM unto us BY HIS SPIRIT… ” [1 Corinthians 2:9-10]

5. LIFE after DEATH is one breathe away, and “In a moment, in the TWINKLING OF AN EYE, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the DEAD SHALL BE RAISED incorruptible, and WE SHALL BE CHANGED” [1 Corinthians 15:52] That MOMENT is so close, I charge you to receive Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour, and be “… BORN AGAIN, not of CORRUPTIBLE seed, but of INCORRUPTIBLE, by the WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever” [1 Peter 1:23] Amen

FINGERS OF FAITH

1. FAITH is a NOUN, that is, a proper name. if you steal, your proper name is THIEF; that is who you are. A THIEF may be rich, pious and well respected in society; he is Mr. THIEF as far as God is concerned. The vilest sinner, poor and wretched, if he comes to God by FAITH is JUSTIFIED, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, and by the Spirit of our God” [1 Corinthians 6:11] If a THIEF or LIAR does all the WORKS of the LAW; pays his tithes, offerings and sleeps in church, he is not JUSTIFIED because “… his SOUL which is lifted up is not upright in him: but THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH” [Habakkuk 2:4] FAITH, therefore, is not an ADJECTIVE describing what we or others say we are, but the choice we make to be JUSTIFIED and allow Jesus Christ to LIVE in us, as it is written: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me” [Galatians 2:20] If Christ dwells in you, you are a CHRISTIAN and your name is FAITH.

2. FAITH is SUBMISSION to the WORD of God, as the Bible says: “So then FAITH COMETH BY HEARING, and hearing by THE WORD OF GOD” [Romans 10:17] If you listen to a LIAR, you will end up in FALSEHOOD. If you give room to doctrines of devils, when a lizard runs across the room, you will see demons. Listen closely, FAITH comes from hearing the WORD of God, not boastful analysis of Greek, Hebrew and English languages. The WORD of God is God, not a doctrine and “… GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH… “ [1 Timothy 3:16 ]God was MANIFEST in Jesus Christ and “… IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD bodily’ [Colossians 2:9] When Jesus Christ died on the Cross, He paid the WAGES of our SINS and became the author of EVERLASTING LIFE to those who come to God by FAITH in His name. FAITH is not being there when Jesus Christ died on the Cross, but BELIEVING in His DEATH and RESURRECTION for the SALVATION of your soul, as the Bible says: “… BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HAVE NOT SEEN, AND YET HAVE BELIEVED” [John 20:29] The WORD of God is calling you to SALVATION today; RECEIVE Jesus Christ and enter into limitless BLESSINGS of FAITH.

3. FAITH is God dwelling in man; “For it is God which worketh in you both TO WILL AND TO DO OF HIS GOOD PLEASURE” [Philippians 2:13] FAITH is a life totally submitted to the WILL of God, not a tool for selfish aggrandizement. FAITH is the MIND of Christ, in you, to walk in absolute OBEDIENCE to DIVINE PURPOSE, as it is written: “LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU, which was also in Christ Jesus: …. And being found in fashion as a man, he HUMBLED HIMSELF, and became OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, even the death of the cross” [Philippians 2:5-8] FAITH, therefore, is not profession of allegiance to a religion, but a LIFE of SACRIFICE, as Paul confessed: “…. I count all things but loss for the excellency of the KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST JESUS my Lord: for whom I have SUFFERED THE LOSS OF ALL THINGS, and do count them but dung, THAT I MAY WIN CHRIST” [Philippians 3:8] FAITH is God in you, measured by what you and I give up to have God dwell in us. Be not deceived by any means, those who preach FAITH as investment for material gain are LIARS “… FAITH is the substance of THINGS HOPED FOR, the EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN” [Hebrews 11:1]

4. FAITH is the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God revealed, “… to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH” [Romans 1:16-17] RIGHTEOUSNESS of God demands every claim of FAITH be subjected to “FIERY TRIAL”, as it is written: “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the FIERY TRIAL WHICH IS TO TRY YOU, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” [1 Peter 4:12-13] The prophecy is fulfilled; FIERY TRIAL rages through the Church, consuming all shades of false ADJECTIVES and exposing all LIARS, SORCERERS, WHOREMONGERS, etc., whose end is “… everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matthew 25:41] Friend, FAITH is RIGHTEOUSNESS and adversity is never an excuse for sin. Whatever you are passing through, I encourage you to remain steadfast in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and remember; “… the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” [2 Timothy 2:19]

5. Finally, FAITH is assurance of our TRANSLATION; when “… 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” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17] Beloved, FAITH is quitting the RAT RACE to PREPARE for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are not BORN AGAIN, I enjoin you to receive the WORD of TRUTH by FAITH and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen

WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU

Are you surrounded by FRIENDS, FAMILY and BRETHREN who do not BELIEVE YOU? Well, you are in good company, the brethren of Jesus Christ did not BELIEVE Him. They said to Him: “… If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For NEITHER DID HIS BRETHREN BELIEVE HIM” [John 7:4-5]

WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU

1. Are you surrounded by FRIENDS, FAMILY and BRETHREN who do not BELIEVE YOU? Well, you are in good company, the brethren of Jesus Christ did not BELIEVE Him. They said to Him: “… If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For NEITHER DID HIS BRETHREN BELIEVE HIM” [John 7:4-5] Jesus was not perturbed. He knew it was the nature of men to DISBELIEVE when you are not what they want you to be and in their TIME. He replied: “… MY TIME IS NOT YET COME: but your time is alway ready” [John 7:6] His brethren probably had good intentions, but GOOD INTENTIONS, “… highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” [Luke 16:15] Those who mock you are not the ENEMY, but ignorant of God’s plan for your life. The ENEMY is Satan, taking advantage of weaknesses of the flesh to provoke fear and anxiety in scoffers. Beloved, God has a PURPOSE for your life, for which He gave His LIFE through Jesus Christ. It is your duty to ascertain God’s PURPOSE, BELIEVE it against all odds and PRESS FORWARD to fulfilment. WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, you are not alone, Apostle Paul said: “… I also suffer these things: nevertheless I AM NOT ASHAMED: for I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” [2 Timothy 1:12] WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, BELIEVE and HOLD ON to the ONE who gave His LIFE for you.

2. What do you do, when DOUBTERS question the HEAVENLY VISION? John, the Baptist, announced the ministry of Jesus Christ, saying: “… BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD, which taketh away the sin of the world” [John 1:29] The same John afterwards sent his disciples to Jesus, saying: ”… John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, ART THOU HE THAT SHOULD COME? or look we for another?” [Luke 7:20] According to the PURPOSE of God, there were no visible miracles in the ministry of John. When miracles began to flow in Christ’s ministry, Satan raised DOUBTS in John’s heart. John was not jealous or evil, but ignorant of DIVINE AGENDA. Jesus calmed John’s DOUBTS, saying: “… tell John what things ye have SEEN and HEARD; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the GOSPEL IS PREACHED” [Luke 7:22] Jesus transformed the “HEAVENLY VISION” to VISIBLE GOSPEL, that could be SEEN and HEARD. I assure you; DOUBTERS will arise when your PURPOSE is in motion. You must not allow any man or situation to DISTRACT you from “… THE HEAVENLY VISION” [Acts 26:19] WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, let your LIFE and MINISTRY witness the VISIBLE GOSPEL.

3. WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, perhaps you are wrong, and DOUBTERS are right. WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, examine yourself, “… WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” [2 Corinthians 13:5] The Bible says: “Now FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen” [Hebrews 11:1] The SUBSTANCE of FAITH is the TESTIMONY of God MANIFEST in Jesus Christ, and “… without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH…” [1 Timothy 3:16] Those who TESTIFY of God “MANIFEST IN THE FLESH” bear WITNESS they are crucified with Jesus Christ, and as Paul said: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD … “ [Galatians 3:20] The EVIDENCE of FAITH is the LIFE you and I LIVE for or against the TESTIMONY we profess, as it is written: “… THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH … “ [Habakkuk 2:4] To LIVE BY FAITH is to LIVE SACRIFICIALLY for Christ, DEAD TO THE FLESH [Romans 12:1-2] If you are CRUCIFIED with Jesus Christ, it does not matter what men think of you, as the Bible says: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me” [Galatians 2:20]

4. The Bible says: “This know also, that IN THE LAST DAY PERILOUS TIMES SHALL COME For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, BLASPHEMERS, … FALSE ACCUSERS, incontinent, fierce, DESPISERS OF THOSE THAT ARE GOOD, TRAITORS, … Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof …” [2 Timothy 3:1-5] BLASPHEMERS, FALSE ACCUSERS and DESPISERS now sit in Church, costumed in “A FORM OF GODLINESS”. Like Lot’s wife, they will challenge your integrity in times of adversity, as it is written: “Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die” [Job 2:9] His friends also DISBELIEVED him, but Job HELD ON and replied: “If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I WAIT, TILL MY CHANGE COME” [Job 14:14] Beloved, my CHANGE and your CHANGE is so close, when the Lord shall appear in the company of innumerable angels and we shall be TRANSLATED to be “… LIKE HIM, FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS” [1 John 3:2] WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, BELIEVE in the Lord and His Coming. Every day, examine yourself in the MIRROR of FAITH to ascertain your standing in Him, earnestly preparing for His appearance when we “… 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” [1 Thessalonians 4:17] If you are not BORN AGAIN, now is time to BELIEVE and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen.
