Immortality Of The Soul



The religious world has promoted the idea of the immortality of the soul since Satan lied to Eve and told her that she would "not surely die". From that point forward, the false religion of the world, including modern-day Christianity have brought into this colossal lie since Satan told Eve in Genesis 3:4 that she would not die. This was done, in spite of the fact that Yahweh ad already warned Adam and Eve that, if they ate of the tree of knowledge, they would surely die.{Gen.2:17},"The preachers and teachers of the world's religions constantly "Preach to their followers, that at birth, we are given an "immortal soul" and at death, that soul either goes to heaven where it lives eternally with Yahweh or to hell where it is tortured eternally by Satan. The concept of human beings possessing an immortal soul is "NOWHERE" to be found in the Bible, in fact the Bible teaches just the opposite, as we read in Ezekiel 18:4,..the soul that sinneth, it shall die.” Memorize this verse, How did this lie creep into the Congregations when the Scriptures teaches the opposite?

Mythology, Religion and mans refusal to contemplate death. The oldest history book available to man is the Scriptures itself. The first 3 chapters of Gen. man thinks he is being told that he is immortal. The concept comes from the innate desire of man to live forever and never have to face death. Satan played upon this desire , and he tricked the woman into doing the very thing that ensured that she and her husband, Adam, would die. Since the GREAT LIE was 1st told to Adam and Eve, the cornerstone of Satan's Lie is that "all human beings are born with immortal souls. "All religious beliefs, whether from PAGANISM, CHRISTENDOM or JUDAISM have bought into Satan's lie that man is an "immortal soul" and that man, at the end of his human life only transition to eternal life. Satan has worked many miracles through people who claim to have received their power from the dead! The ancient magicians of Egypt, through their magic, were able to convince people that they were communicating with the dead who had supposedly passed to life "on the other side." And this belief is universally accepted and when they preach funerals emphasizing that the departed loved one "is alive in heaven with Elohim."

Tortured Forever : Do you know the Christian concept of hell came straight out of Milton's "Paradise Lost," satire on religion. The idea of the souls of human beings being tortured and living forever in an ever burning hell, believe it or not, Does Not Come From The Scriptures!! It finds it's origins in Milton's Paradise Lost and Dante's Inferno.

NO ONE HAS ASCENDED EXCEPT.. THE MESSIAH

When a man dies, he simply goes to the grave and returns to the dust from which he came Yahshua uses the term asleep and the Scriptures/Bible uses the term sleep, Did Lazarus come from heaven or hell, Yahushua just said Come forth, as it will be in the resurrection, {Job gives us a little incite
14:11-14} The resurrection is man's only hope to escape from the grave, once he has died.{1st. Corinthians 15:12-22}. Peter also declared this statement on the Day of Pentecost, he declared that David had not gone to heaven at his death, but was still in the grave {Acts 2:29,34} The concept of the "Immortality" of the soul is a cornerstone belief of modern-day Christendom and every pagan religion on the face of the earth. The Scriptures/Bible plainly teaches that man IS a "SOUL" and that the soul is not just a "spirit living inside the body".

The confusion comes from misunderstanding what the BREATH OF LIFE IS ALL ABOUT, Religionists teach that ''breath of life'' is the soul entering into the body at birth or leaving the body at death. If this were the case, the 'breath of life' which Yahweh put in man would have pre-existed and man would have had immortality from the beginning. This is exactly what ancient pagans believed and New Age theology teaches; this is taught by most modern-day religions, however if this soul had consciousness before being implanted into Adam by Elohim's breath, it would have had knowledge which predated Adam If reincarnation were true, we would find ample scriptures to support this concept in both the Old and the New Testaments. Try as you may, there is nothing in the Old or the New Testaments to support this concept . "THIS "BREATH" WHICH YAHWEH GAVE MAN, MADE MAN A LIVING SOUL, NOT A CLAY MODEL HOUSING A SOUL.

Job understood about the SPIRIT in man. {Job 27:3}, We see from this scripture that man's BREATH is NECESSARY for LIFE. when the breath is withdrawn, the body begins to dissolve back to the dust of the earth. {Psalms 146:4} Jesus Himself tells us where the dead will be when He returns, {John 5:28-29}. Job clearly understood this concept when he made the statement found in {Job 17:13}, Man is a soul and not merely a clay model housing a soul. We do not have an "immortal soul", and we do not receive, at our deaths Eternal Life, either in heaven or hell; Matt.19:16, and the answer Messiah is diametrically opposed to what religions teach today. Most preachers take scripture out of context and preach a lying message that all that is required For Salvation is to only believe that Yahshua is the son of Yahweh, they claim that, in so doing, it guarantees that one will have Eternal Life, however James makes a statement that even the demons know, without a shadow of a doubt that Messiah is the Son of Yahweh. {James 2:19}, Christendom teaches and deceives its followers into believing that there is no repentance or life change required in order to receive eternal life, they say one must simply believe that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh and that is sufficient. But the demons only believe the very same and they shake and tremble, and they teach that anyone who believes that Messiah Is the Son of Yahweh is now living "under Grace" and has the "freedom to live any lifestyle they choose, this is directly OPPOSED to Messiah's answer when the young man asked Him what he must do to inherit eternal life, {Matthew 19:17-19},You did notice that Messiah mentioned parts of the 10 Commandments as REQUIREMENT for SALVATION? and immediately, false ministers will say that this is teaching salvation by works, NO! NO! NO! NO! Messiah said - that for Salvation, one must begin to live according to YHWH'S Law;

Those who claim to love Yahweh and do not keep His Commandments are LIARS and DECEIVERS! 1st John 5:3 plainly defines for us what the LOVE OF YHWH is. Man is a physical being, possessing only physical life,. If man is to live forever and claim promises made to Abraham, he must acquire eternal life. {Romans:6:23} the wages of sin is death but the gift of Yahweh is eternal life through Yahshua the Messiah our Elohim, and {Matthew 19:17} Keeping the Commandments is a requirement; Obedience to Elohim is necessary in order to obtain the gift of eternal life. {Acts 2:28}; We must be raised from the dead or changed from physical to spirit, at the Return of Yahshua the Messiah, which actually is the time of being BORN AGAIN. This is the time at which we put off the human, mortal body and put on the spirit, Yahweh like body that is now composed of spirit {John 4:24}, in order to gain immortality. Being born of Spirit is not a reforming of an immortal soul that we are now supposed to posses - but a TOTALLY NEW BIRTH. That is the reason Yahshua said, You must be born again. You must be raised from the dead through a resurrection and, at the same time be reborn as a spirit being, at that time, you will have a spirit body which will live forever in spirit form and not one made of fleshly, organic matter subject to death! You will be born as an immortal spirit into THE FAMILY OF YHWH, Ephesians 3:15, and {Hebrews 12:9}, but many still twist all of these Bible passages about death and apply them to the body, clinging to the pagan idea that they now possess an IMMORTAL SOUL. {1st Timothy 1:17},This verse refers to Yahshua Messiah, the world's coming King, who was made immortal through the resurrection to eternal life, and according to 1st Timothy 6:16 who has immortality God or man? Who brought the knowledge of how to achieve {eternal life and immortality} 2nd Timothy 1:10; {Romans 2:7 immortality is to be sought for}, 1st.Corinthians 15:53-54 notice in Acts 2:29.34,No man has ascended to heaven, and King David , is still in his grave, David will be made immortal at the resurrection, and notice in Jeremiah 30:9, some even think of Enoch and Elijah and assume that they prove that man has an immortal soul, many believe that Enock and Elijah never faced death, Hebrews 11:5.13. David prophesy of the resurrection of Messiah {Acts 2:30-31} and verses 27 and 31, Messiah's soul left hell ,or the "grave". The only place in the Bible that the word immortal appears is 1st Timothy 1:17 and this refers to Yahshua Messiah, the world's coming King, who was made immortal through a resurrection to eternal life. Job spoke of a change that was yet coming, 1st Corinthians 15:51-53, at the last trump the dead shall be raised incorruptible, David referred to this event in Psalms 17:15; compare 1st John 3:2 with 1st Corinthians 15:44 ; is Yahshua now composed of spirit 2nd Corinthians 3:17 says yes; we will be new creatures compare 2nd Corinthians 5:17 with Galatians 6:15; at the resurrection, who will hear the voice of the Son of YHWH ; John 5:25; will immortal souls hear it or will the dead hear it? The dead cannot hear unless there is a resurrection! The dead are pictured as asleep in their graves, awaiting the day of resurrection, notice Yahshua' words when describing the death of Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha; "Our friend Lazarus sleepth; Then said his disciples, "Master if he sleeps, he shall do well; Howbeit Yahshua spake of his death; but they thought that He had spoken of rest in sleep. Then said Yahshua plainly, "Lazarus is dead." John 11:11-14. Death is described as a sleep because the dead are not conscious, Here are a list of many more Scriptures which describe death as a sleep over 36 times, 1 Kings 11:21,43, 14:20,31; 15:8,24; 16:6,; 22:40,50; 2nd. Kings 8:24; 10:35; 13:9,13; 14:16,22,29; 15:7,22,38; 16:20; 20:21; 21:18;24:6; 2nd. Chronicles 9:31; 12:16; 14:1; 16:13; 21:1; 26:2,28:27; 32:33; 33:20, Certainly here is evidence that the dead are not conscious, the unconscious spirit essence in each man and woman - "the spirit IN man"- sleeps in DEATH comes to the man.

When the dead hear the voice of the Son of YHWH, at the resurrection, they come out of there graves. John 5:28-29 The dead come to life through a resurrection and leave their graves to join Messiah. (1st Thessalonians 4:17), When that instantaneous change comes at the resurrection, we will put on immorality, {1st Corinthians 15:51-53 and 2nd Corinthians 5:1-5} this is spirit eternal, 2nd Corinthians 4:18: } Notice 2nd Corinthians 5:2 and 5:5} notice Romans 8:9; and notice 8:11 If the Holy Spirit dwells in us, we will be the agent which Elohim quickens, or makes alive our mortal bodies at resurrection, notice v.14 we will be the SON'S OF YHWH

Most in Christendom believe that, when Christians die, they go immediately to heaven to be with Messiah, They claim Paul's statement in
Philippians 1:23-24 as proof, Did Paul have the desire to be with Messiah but does this verse say any thing about where Paul would go, There is not one word here mentioning heaven as the place Paul would be, nor is there one word saying Paul would be with Messiah immediately, PEOPLE READ THESE IDEAS INTO THE Scriptures/BIBLE, BUT THEY ARE NOT THERE, in {2nd Timothy 4:6-8} Was Paul's departure now at hand? What did he expect to receive from Messiah and when would he meet Him? Verse 8 Paul is referring to the day immediately after death, or the DAY of the RESURRECTION.

Those who are dead and in their graves are not conscious; they have no knowledge of the passing of time, it is as if, at the moment of their deaths, all time stopped for them; Their very next conscious moments will be the time of the RESURRECTION when their lives begin anew and they truly become BORN AGAIN spirit beings! This is why Paul wrote in
2nd Corinthians 5:9-10, "wherefore we labor, that, whether present alive in the flesh} or absent {dead in the grave until the return of Messiah}, we may be accepted of Him It will be at the resurrection, just before the return of Messiah and those who are in the FIRST RESURRECTION and to RECEIVE their REWARDS! This event occurs immediately after the completion of the 2nd woe, just before the 3rd woe starts and the blowing of the FINAL TRUMPET, as mentioned by Paul in 1st Thessalonians 4:16-17; see also 2nd Timothy 4:1; Spirit in man sleeps until the resurrection that occurs just before the return of Yahshua Messiah, Matthew 10:28; Fear Him that can destroy both body and soul. Romans 6:4,11 Some Christians say dead through the symbol of baptism . The old sinful self, or soul, crucified with Messiah Romans 6:3-6; this is the carnal attitude the carnal self or should be reckoned as dead with Messiah we shall be alive with Him.

Men can kill the body ,but they cannot touch your spiritual life, the new man or new creature of which Paul speaks which will be resurrected at the return of Yahshua Messiah, the Soul that men cannot kill is the newly begotten spiritual life of a Christian.
Colossians 3:3; When one begins to be converted, the old self becomes spiritually dead, The mind of the new convert is Begotten at conversion by the Spirit of Yahweh. The Christian world erroneously teaches that, at BAPTISM a person is born again rater than begotten, one cannot be born again until he or she is resurrected from the dead or instantaneously changed from physical to Spirit Being, 1 Corinthians 15;

The Spirit of YHWH is NOT another consciousness: it is spiritual life from YHWH that joins with the human spirit in the man and converts your conscious mind into a new creature with the potential of ETERNAL LIFE, MOST PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT MEANING OF THE WORD CONVERSION IT IS A CHEMICAL TERM. IT MEANS TO CHANGE THE NATURE OF; the Spirit of YHWH, which is added to your mind when you repent and surrender your life to Him, is the agent by which you will be changed from being of corruptible flesh with a carnal mind into a Spiritual Being-Actually composed of Spirit, with the power of an endless life!, Conversion means much more than a mere change of attitude, it includes a change in composition-A change from matter to immortal spirit, this change does not take place all at once!

It begins when you become begotten by the Spirit of YHWH, in this life, what is changed Is: Your Attitude, our character, your mind's outlook on life, you will not be completely converted into SPIRIT until the RESURRECTION. At your resurrection, Your conversion is finally COMPLETED! At death, your conscious self dies, it ceases to think.
{Ecclesiastes 9:5},but the power or spirit of YHWH that invigorates your inner spirit, or inner man the new life BEGOTTEN within you THAT POWER IS RESERVED IN HEAVEN and will recreate your mind - your character - and quicken, or make your body IMMORTAL at the RESURRECTION.

That inner spirit, even though it loses consciousness at death and ceases to exist as a separate, living entity-that inner spirit, coupled with the human spirit your enemies have no power over. It is your right to eternal life that no man can TAKE from you But , IF YOU WILFULLY REBEL AGAINST YHWH, AFTER THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH IS MANIFEST TO YOUR MIND, "YHWH WILL DESTROY BOTH THE BODY AND YOUR INNER HUMAN SPIRIT BY DESTROYING YOU IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! You will be burned up! There will never be a resurrection from the "lake of fire." That will be your end for all eternity!

The pagan philosophers believed that man was an immortal soul in a material body, The Catholic church has adopted this view, even some of the Protestants claim that man is "body soul and spirit." But which is immortal - the soul or the spirit - they never seem quite sure!

Paul sometimes refers to a man as "body , soul , and spirit,
{1st Thessalonians 5:3} Does this verse prove the doctrine of the "immortality of the soul? What does the word "spirit" mean in 1st Thessalonians 5:23? 1st Corinthians 2:10,11,16 give us this answer, man is MORTAL. Paul said it rather plain in 1st Thessalonians 5:23, MIND POWER when he uses the word "spirit” and isn't it plain that he is referring to the LIFE when he uses the word "soul", and to the FLESH when he uses the word "body" I ask you what is wrong with having your whole mind, your life and your body preserved blameless - preserved from the penalty of -sin in anticipation of the coming of Messiah, compare 2nd Corinthians 7:1 with 1st. Thessalonians 5:23.

How plain the Bible is, man is MORTAL, corruptible flesh-organic matter with a temporary life, He has NO immortal soul, he has NO hope of a future life in HIMSELF, He is doomed-EXCEPT for the intervention of the ALMIGHTY ONE, YHWH our Elohim did intervene through the death and resurrection of HIS SON BY CREATING the possibility that condemnation can be removed form man and that he can inherit ETERNAL LIFE which is IMMORTALITY.

Because all have sinned-because the human race has made itself utterly miserable, YHWH commands men everywhere to REPENT, to BELIEVE in Yahshua the Messiah, to be BAPTIZED and to receive the HOLY SPIRIT. YHWH has given this plan because He loves us-because He has "no pleasure in the death of the wicked...Turn ye, TURN YE, from your evil; FOR WHY will ye DIE," asks the Almighty YHWH in
Ezekiel 33:11

 

But what about the souls under the alter

There have been many that cited these verses to validate the immortal soul doctrine and the belief that, upon death, people go to heaven. However, this description is not literal, but rather is entirely symbolic. As Scripture plainly teaches that souls are mortal, and Scripture can not be broken to sute man's vanity.

In vision, the apostle John saw before him a book or scroll sealed with seven seals. As our Moshiach opened each seal
(Rev. 5:5), John was shown a preview of an event that would happen in the future (“hereafter” [4:1]). Since John was “in the spirit” as the seven seals were opened (vs. 2), the events he witnessed were not actually occurring at that time. They were heavenly previews of things that would happen later on earth.

Upon the opening of the fifth seal
(Rev. 6:9), John “saw under [at the base of] the altar the souls of them that were slain.” our Moshiach had shown the meaning of the seven seals when He was on earth. He explained that the fifth seal symbolizes the coming time of Great Tribulation (Matt. 24:9-28), an event that will occur on earth.

In this vision, John was shown the future, this modern age, a time when one martyrdom has already taken place (during the Middle Ages) and a greater one (the Great Tribulation) is yet to happen. The souls who were “slain” (martyred followers of the Moshiach throughout the ages) were told, in
Revelation 6:11, to “rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.” Those who have died will continue to “rest” (remain “asleep [Eph. 5:14; I Cor. 11:30] in their graves), until others are also martyred as they were. The “souls” (dead in Moshiach) crying “avenge our blood” (vs. 10) is akin to Abel’s blood (his life [note Lev. 17:14]) crying to Elohim from the earth (Gen. 4:10). Since blood does not talk and neither do the dead (Psa. 115:17; Ecc. 9:5, 10), we understand the meaning to be symbolic, not literal. Therefore, the “souls under the altar” represent those awaiting the future martyrdom of saints.
