D e a t h  Q u e s t i o n s
p a g e  4

-How long do we stay dead?.Isaiah 38:18

The Creator is excited about the part of His plan where we become with Him: Job 14:14,15; John 5:24. God is excited about you. Are you excited about you?.Romans 8:19. What to be excited about? How to get excited. What was the early New Testament church excited about?

-What are the second deaths?

The first death is dying physically, the result of spiritual death.
   Adam 'died' to a relationship with his Creator. Adam was offered the "tree of life":.Genesis 2:9.

Adam walked and talked with the Creator:.Genesis 2:19,20,23; 3:9. Adam could have chosen eternal life, but he faced a 'stacked deck'. He was created with all the normal desires we have.(had no choice in what God put in Him, the choosing part was only what he could do with it); he came into a ready made environment that he had no hand in fashioning.(just like us).and he had the devil to contend with, us too until Christ is in us and then too if we allow our minds to become alienated from God; but only alienated for awhile as God never gives up on us.(Hebrews 13:5; Matthew 28:20).and He allows it because He does not want clones).

The only advantage Adam may have had over us was that the environment was not as is our present world.(Galatians 1:4), but yet, there were no lessons to be learned from experiences because upon his creation there were none for him to learn from. He was new.

Adam also had little or no experience with his emotions and the things of life. Adam was created good:.Ecclesiastes 7:29. God knew what would happen:.Isaiah 46:10. It was a 'stacked deck'. 

Into the world back then first came this guy called Adam. Soon he and his partner Eve allowed their ego to guide them and chose a way that brought heartache into their lives.

The ego will always lead a person down the pathway of destruction; destruction in some form or another. Sin is defined as 'missing the mark in having a relationship with God', as the word in the original means.

So we see the first death while still living; that of Adam dying to the relationship He had with God. We come here already in that spiritual state. 

Because of Adam's choice of trees, of all things, death was passed onto mankind:.Romans 5:12,16,17 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world and death through sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.(in Adam; whether we knew that we had sinned or not;, but we all have egos and the ego is the sinning engine). And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift. For the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace.('they which receive', because God never overrides anyone, that is, you've got to be 'in it to win it').and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Emmanuel Christ" 

Romans 5:18 "Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one.(Christ:.1Corinthians 15:22).the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life."

A 'death' occurs while living also; that of being dead in what is called Christ:.Romans 6:2,8; Colossians 3:3 "For you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God."

For us: Here we have died to the carnal nature, the ego nature, in that, it no longer runs one's life. The nature that caused the relationship with the Creator to be severed.in the first place.(Romans 7:14-25).now has an overseer, as it were, providing the conscience that enables us to have sense as to what is good for us and others and what is not. We needed to die to the things the ego formed mind uses to hide itself from the soul. Example: We would rather visit, gossip, watch TV, go to a movie, play at something, travel or shop, than meditate. Do not allow all important meditation to take a side track, for it is here that all life.(including yours).moves forward in wholeness. Wholeness is oneness. 

This is because it considers the world and the self in it from the ego level as separation.it regards meditation as a waste of time as it sees and believes that there is no benefit accruing to self. And this because it sees itself as separate from all others. Essentially it just does not know how to love.

In this death, one 'dies' to the ego desired externals that were his life and the more the so one becomes alive to the 'things from within'. He is no longer 'quickened' or made alive by being involved in the exciting things of the physical life:.John 6:63. They are no longer the raison d'etre.

Another dead while living occurs to those who just don't care about other. They are emotionally anesthetized.

A dead person cannot change himself. That is why we can rest from getting ourselves to the state we are already in but may not be aware of it. That is why we are His workmanship:.Ephesians 2:10.

We are now 'dead in Christ'.(2Timothy 2:11).and 'dead to sin' in Him.(Romans 6:2-11).and 'dead to the law'.(Romans 7:4,6).thanks to Him:.Romans 8:10 "And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness." 2Corinthians 5:14 "For the love of Christ constrains us, because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead." Colossians 3:3 "For you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God."
   To be dead to a thing suggests that it has no influence over us. But what if evils still are influencing you?

About our physical death:.1Corinthians 15:51-55; 1Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 24:22

And another 'second death' occurs also. 

As far as the Creator is concerned, when you're in Christ and He's in you, you're dead.(Romans 6:7,8).to the old carnal nature and sin; and God no longer sees your sins. He now sees you as perfect, as righteous and as holy as His Son is. That's what Emmanuel the Christ did for us! 

The other second death is a physical death talked of in.Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."

Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable.(Romans 1:29-31; Galatians 5:19-21).and murderers and whore mongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, shall have their part in the lakewhich burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." 

Revelation 20:6 "Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection; on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a thousand years." 

Revelation 2:11 "He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches; He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death."

-Are those who have killed in war guilty of murder and go to hell?

We have war because we have an invisible powerful being with powerful ways of influencing those on Earth, a being whose job it is to cause unrest, confusion, frustration and any other negative you can think of. And he and those spirit beings with him does this through influencing the ego nature mankind naturally has that is his purpose on Earth to move from.

Wars are from interpersonal relationships of all sizes. Their purpose is to awaken mankind:.2Chronicles 16:9; 17:10. Your life on this Earth at this time is part of a stage, a stage for learning. God wants us to see that it's our way of thinking that has led to actions of war. He has set up automatic invisible patterns that are triggered by attitude and bring result bad or good depending on the thinking.

Killing another is killing an aspect of our own self because all is really one.

-John 8:52 What did Emmanuel mean when He said."some wouldn't taste of death"? Does this mean if a Christian we don't die?

"What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly."
