I have been watching some of these You Tubes on near death experiences. Some experience hell (or so they say) which can be a bit disturbing. Others describe heaven, angels and long tunnels of light which is, of course, uplifting.
A lot of them, maybe most, allude to being "a good person" then it seems to speak of law to me.
If it is being a good person that dictates my eventual destination, them I'm sunk!
An thoughts about this?
Hi Jock ,
I love what you are saying
just today I saw something about a mystery of the HOLY SPIRIT I never saw before
and was always confused about the 24 elders in Revelation 4 and those reigning with Christ now as apart of the Holy Spirit to me these are the law & prophets making 24 is a foundation 12 tribes of Israel and 12 apostles in the HOLY CITY OF GOD whom come out of Israel to be with and follow Jesus or LAW and those are judging the living and dead 28 Jesus said to them, "Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
I thought why the 12 tribes of Israel ? and to me those are the ones whom are still under the Law of Moses and sit under the shadow of death
and to me the HOLY SPIRIT IS the teacher and comforter of truth , what if all those dying of the mortal bodies , clay pots cracked open are still being chastened and by rods of iron /strength to control a group of people very firmly, having complete power over everything that they do
as correction and learning still without a mortal body /clay but still have a spirit and living soul that is under correction , the Holy Spirit and Fire is what we can see is also true in Revelations
I do not understand it all and am only beginning to understand the realms of the Lord and His promises and Him being the Lord of the dead and living and how we can only wonder at His mysteries of the universe and ages
But I dont think we quit learning righteousness at mortal death , I do believe this learning process continues long after the clay pots are broken and the true hearts of mankind are exposed and seen whats in them and we will not proceed or go before those with Him knowing what the Lord when He comes!! , will reveal to us 1thess 5
are those with the rods of IRON 26 The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, 27 and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father.
I know we are only clay pots for a very , very short time 80 years some more some much much less and there is an eternity to understand that no earthly human can begin to process or know the ways of God in all His perfect and complete work
by the little's we can glimpse of His glory and we can see no end to it !!
