The more you study scripture and see how true it all is the more you trust God to take care of you.

There is a spiritual happening all around us that we, as humans, do not see. When my Dad was dying I was there and was privileged to see what was happening to him. There was a change in the light in the room, so I could make out that there was something there, two of them. I could perceive what they were saying, and they had come to escort Dad to whatever it is that happens at death. So we do not go to heaven without someone helping us.

If you accept Y-shua/Jesus as Messih you go to heaven if not you go to hell...

Not hard...

The Place of Eternal Torment:


What happens after you die?

Your soul departs from your body.

And if you've been wicked,
your soul travels to CC,
and lands in Bible Discussion Forum,
and gets trapped there for ever and ever...
debating Calvinism and Arminianism.
And no matter what you say,
the other side will always have a counter point,
for ever and ever,
and they'll never run out of counter points,
and they'll never agree,
and they'll never give up.
And for all eternity God will never step in and resolve the debate...
because you have died in your sins,
and your soul is forever doomed...

to the place of eternal torment.

Nobody knows. Nobody has been dead and came back.

You might want to check Scripture on that one. Jesus, Lazarus and several hundred others would disagree with you. :)
that is the same as someone here saying they died and saw stuff and then came back.

Hey Lily welcome back!

Well, the above is apples and oranges. There were many witnesses to the resurrection of Christ and Lazarus.

Hello everyone,

Bear in mind, I'm new here so not sure where to post, hope this is the right one.

I'm just wondering what will happen after death, I've been quite nervous for a month now wondering what will happen after death?

I'm still young and got plenty years to come but still nervous about dying, the bit that makes me sad is, will I ever get to see my family again when we all die as I'm very close with them, I can't even be away with them for a day, never mind forever, I just really hope I will get to see my family again in heaven.

I just really hope heaven is real, just quite haven't got my faith yet. How can I calm myself down? How can I be sure that heaven exist?

Thank you

Lewis

Hello Lewisx,

Heb 9:27 it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Judgment Day - 2 Final Judgment Seats

1) Judgment seat of Christ = believers only. (Rom 14:10 & 2 Cor 5:10)

2) White Throne Judgment = non-believers only. (Rev 20:11-13)

The people at the White Throne Judgment have rejected Christ's, redemptive sin atonement & are judged according to the Law

Everything anyone has ever done or said, has been "RECORDED"

Without Christ there is no cloak for sin (Jn 15:22) At the White Throne Judgement, every sin, every lie, every time God was mocked, every idle word ever spoken, is judged

Jesus said, the one who rejects me & does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day (John 12:46-50)

Those at The White Throne Judgment Seat are found in Rev 20:11-13. (NO Believers will be judged here: Jesus took their judgment on the cross)

John 5:24 Jesus said; Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life
(NOTE: Believers will not be judge for thier sin)

Believers go to the Judgment Seat of Christ (2 Cor 5:10 & Rom 14:10)

Here sin is not discussed. Faith placed in Christ's Redemptive Sin Atoning Death (sins wage PAID), burial & Resurrection(God's receipt, sin payment received & accepted). ALL of the believers sins are IMPUTED onto Jesus & nailed to His Cross (Col 2:14)

When Jesus said; ITS FINISHED! (John 19:30) What was finished? The work of redemption. Every worldly sin any believer ever committed was PAID FOR IN FULL. Thru faith placed in Gods grace & Jesus sin atoning death & resurrection. A full pardon is given!

No believer will never be condemned/judged for sin (Rom 8:1)

The believers Sins have been removed: As far as the east is from the west (Ps 103:12)

Christians are judged for their works in Him, be they good or bad:
(NOTE: Even a drink of water given in his name, receives a reward Matt 10:42, Rev 22:12)

Eph 6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord,
(NOTE: We are to KNOW our works done in His service. Will be rewarded by Christ personally)

1 Cor 3:8-14 Good works receive a reward. Bad or No works (DEAD) result in shame & or loss

For any sinful works, he shall suffer loss, forfeit a special reward; "NOT" that he shall lose salvation.

Salvation a free gift, not a "reward" or wage. Salvation's foundation is found in Gods grace & faith placed in the Redemptive Sin Atoning Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ

1 Cor 3:
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
(NOTE: Gold & silver = Good works done in Christ's name. Hay, wood & stubble = no works, selfish works, even bad works)

13 Each one’s work will become manifest, the Day (of ones judgment) will disclose it, it will be revealed by fire, & the fire will test what sort of work each one has done
(NOTE: Every deed will be tested)

14 If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives ""he will receive a reward""
(NOTE: Gold & silver deeds, will receive a reward)

15 If anyone’s work is burned up, "he will suffer loss", "though he himself will be saved"
(NOTE: Hay, wood & stubble deeds will bring, shame & loss = of REWARDS not SALVATION)

Rereading verse 15: He "Will SUFFER LOSS", though he "HIMSELF WILL BE SAVED"

The believers WORKS, done in Christ's name, will be tested (NOT THIER SALVATION) Hay, wood & stubble works will be burned up. Also, earned rewards can be lost, but, the bleievers soul still be saved. God will not cast off a believing soul for any failure of sin. The believers salvation foundation is the finished (REDEMPTIVE) work of the faithfully righteous Jesus the Christ.

At the moment a person becomes a Christian they receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is referred to as a “deposit” “seal” "the earnest” put in the heart of Christians The Holy Spirit is God’s seal on His people.

The Holy Spirit is given to believers as security deposit. (2 Cor 1:22; 5:5; Eph 1:13-14; 4:30)

At the White Throne Judgment, Rev 20:11-13:

All the UNBELIEVING people who REJECTED God's grace & would not place thier trust in Christ's sin atoning sacrifice. Will be judge for every sin, every unbelieving word they ever spoke.

Blasphemy the Holy Spirit the only unforgivable sin (Mk 3:22–30 & Mat 12:22–32). This blasphemy to reject God's grace found is Jesus sin atoning sacrifice, until lifes end. Always offered via the "Holy Spirit". For this REJECTION/UNBELIEF there is NO forgiveness.

Believers Have Eternal Life
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son "hath" everlasting life & he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him

Unbelievers Are Condemned
John 3:18 But he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

My wife had a near death experience before I met her. We studied the scriptures together and still concluded the dead are asleep. Like others have said, these experiences are visions. She believed she talked to the Lord while dead and I do too. God knew He was going to let her come back so He did not let her sleep. :cool:
