There are only a few that ever find the gate into God's kingdom according to God. Mt. 7:13 & 14
---Theodore_A._Jones on 9/12/15


Jerry6593, YAHUSHUA tells us what happens to a person's soul immediately upon death.

In LUKE 16:19-31 it says "And it came to pass that the beggar(Lazarus)died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom (Paradise): the rich man also died, and was buried, And, in Hell, he lift up his eyes, being in torments..."

This indicates that Paradise and Hell are IMMEDIATE destinations at death.

There is no mentioning of any space of time between death and Paradise or Hell.

To believe that there IS a duration of time between death and Paradise or Hell is really "opinion and conjecture" and is a "dangerous" act of adding "words to the" Bible that are not really there.
---Gordon on 9/12/15


Gordon: You give opinion and conjecture. I need Scripture.

The Bible says "The rest of the dead lived not again", it does not say "on earth". Those who are not alive are not immortal, regardless of location. It is dangerous for you to add words to the book of Revelation.


---jerry6593 on 9/12/15


Samuel you said, "Micha most people believe predestination means GOD makes the choice for People."

Samuel, God makes the people with the choices.

In the LBC of 1689, it speaks and explain providence.
---john9346 on 9/11/15


Jerry6593, It has to be understood that, in this Verse you referenced, it is talking from the perspective of "being alive ON THE EARTH".

Being alive on the Earth as we, today, are alive, living ON THE EARTH.

For Paradise in Heaven is not "on Earth", it's up above, in what is termed, by some, as "the Third Heaven", the place of GOD's Throne.

And, Hell, on the other hand, is, likewise, not "on Earth" but, is, instead, "below" or towards the center or heart of the Earth.

Those who have died are now in Heaven's Paradise or are below in Hell. None of these are considered as being alive "on Earth".....
---Gordon on 9/11/15




Jerry6593....., Those who will not be up on the Earth, alive on the Earth, during the 1,000-Year Reign of Christ, they will be waiting either above in Heaven or below in Hell 'til after that 1,000-Year Reign is over.

In fact, the Day of the Great White Throne Judgment of GOD, for all of the Damned who ever lived, will take place right after, or some time shortly after, the Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth.
---Gordon on 9/11/15


Gordon: If the wicked dead continued to be alive (as immortal spooks) during the millennial period, then why does the Bible say that they are not alive at that time?

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.


---jerry6593 on 9/11/15


Yes Gordan you say that. But where does the Bible say it?

Where are souls called immortal? Where does the Bible say death is not death?

Malichi 4:1

For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven, and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

If you are correct then why is this lie in the Bible?

Why did Jesus lie?

Matthew 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Samuelbb7, The Lake of Fire is the 2nd Death, indeed.

And, just as one does not cease to exist when after they die their 1st physical death (whether they be Saved and end up directly into Heaven or they die in their sins and they go immediately into Hell),

in the 2nd death, in the Lake of Fire, the wicked continue to exist.

Only, there, in the LOL, they are in eternal, non-stop torments.

sorry Gordon. I should have left your name out when quoting learner2's posts.
I was pointing out the absurdity of his recent posts, 1 being that the Bible is not historical or accurate, the other being that he quoted the same for his beliefs.
I do believe in the Bible's historicity and accuracy and, through it, have come to believe that God, in His infinite wisdom and sovereignty, has endowed man with the ability to choose and also reap the consequences or his choices, whether good or evil.
This is predestination, for God knows the choices that man makes.
---micha9344 on 9/8/15


micha, Yes, it is GOD's own DESIRE to save the whole human race....
But, it is not every human being's desire to be redeemed by GOD.

Many have already died and perished into a CHRIST-less Eternity.

They are now doomed for the eternal Lake of Fire.

GOD grants each human being the choice to receive or reject HIM and HIS Salvation.

If you explained it, would you need to use sarcasm as your response?

Samuel you said, "Universal-ism is based on a tenet of Calvinism."

universalism is based in Pelagianism which is a heresy...

God forces know one to be save remember he is the creator right??


So the creator need permission from that of which he created heretical.

L2: "John, if you missed the point, my explaining it won't do any good."

John must be well out of your league if you refuse to engage in open and honest debate with him.


---jerry6593 on 9/7/15


John, you do know REFORMED Theology is Reformed Catholocism. BUT my question is, when did scripture ever need to be REFORMED? And all who opposed the RCC were REFORMERS. But not all REFORMERS believe the same thing. Calvin is one Reform THEORY or doctrine based on A MANS interpretation of scripture.
God predestined THE CHURCH, not individuals. All today who receive Jesus Christ and are crucified with Him through FREE WILL, are members of His Body making up the CHURCH, being predestined to be conformed to His Image. Not predestined to be saved.

John, if you missed the point, my explaining it won't do any good.
---learner2 on 9/6/15


Universal-ism is based on a tenet of Calvinism. That GOD forces some to be saved.

Since he can force some to be saved and loves all humans. Then He will force all to be saved. But some will have to be tortured in fire first.

It is also a repugnance of the doctrine of eternal torture that drives universal-ism.

Free will on the other hand teaches men must live or die with their choices.

Conditionalism teaches that the second death means cease to exist.

It is impossible, now, that "everyone is going to (end up in) Heaven".

That's "Universalism".

The Scriptures declare most of mankind will end up in Hell and the Lake of Fire
(because of their own choice to refuse following GOD).

The Holy Bible says, in MATTHEW 7:13, "Enter ye in at the Strait Gate: for wide is the gate, and broad (very ample, very wide) is the way, that leadeth to Destruction (the ultimate place of destruction: the Lake of Fire), and MANY THERE BE which go in thereat: Because Strait is the Gate, and Narrow is the Way (YAHUSHUA/JESUS of JOHN 14:6, and the Lifestyle which is "narrow", righteous, pure and holy), which leadeth unto Life, and FEW THERE BE that find it."

In the online Sermon by Spurgeon Jacob and Esau. Me makes the case free will causes men to deserve eternal hell. But by overriding free will GOD chooses to save some. He does disagree with other Calvinists who state that GOD created men to damn them. Because like Esau he hated them.

There are some mistakes and a few disagreements in some of the points. But this Baptist confession is beautiful.

It did not address the Calvinist point on hating some. But not all Baptists are pure Calvinists.

True Glenn. But Christian Conditionalism does not contradict the Bible. Universal-ism came from Calvinism. The originators of this idea came to understand that GOD loves everyone. So it lead them to believe that in the end everyone would be saved.

True Richardc. But we are not saved by works but by Grace through faith. Jacob had faith and became an over comer. Esau didn't have faith.

Salvation has always been by Grace.

You don't have to believe what I write, but if you really do want to know the answer to your question, pay attention.

Jesus came for the sick/corrupt. Jesus also said to a woman "Woman, your faith has saved you" (Jesus DID NOT SAY that the woman should let His blood save her).

Our main downfall/problem in dealing with scripture is that the meanings of words have been DISTORTED.

"FAITH" refers to a person's lifestyle, character/attitude and demeanor (Jesus was telling the woman that her PEACEFUL and sincere lifestyle had saved her).

And fire keeps it there and under control, I understand. Satan and his children won't reason, but fire can control them. People of this evil spirit will go with it where it is going.
