THE PHYSICAL GRAVES WILL OPEN LITERALLY, AND EVERY TRULY BORN AGAIN BELIEVER’S ‘CORRUPTIBLE’ OR NATURAL SOUL AND ‘NATURAL’ CORRUPTIBLE BODY WILL LITERALLY BE CHANGED INTO AN INCORRUPTIBLE, GLORIFIED BODY, SIMILAR TO JESUS’ GLORIFIED BODY AFTER HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE GRAVE. 

IN 1 Ths. 4:13-18, PAUL CONFIRMED THIS TEACHING ON THE BODILY RESURRECTION OF THE BORN AGAIN DEPARTED ‘AT THE SOUND OF THE LAST TRUMPET.’

HOWEVER, THIS ‘SPIRITUAL’ INTERPRETATION OF THE APOSTLES, AGAIN ERASES THE HUMAN SPIRIT OF MANKIND FROM THE EQUATION, AND CONFUSES THE HUMAN SPIRIT WITH THE ‘SOUL’ OR NATURAL MIND OF MAN, (1 THS. 5:21.) THE HUMAN SPIRIT AND THE HUMAN MIND ARE TWO SEPARATE ENTITIES, WHICH LIVE IN A HUMAN BODY, (1 THS. 5:21.) 

THE PROCESS, WHICH THE BIBLE CALLS ‘THE RENEWAL OF THE MIND,’ CAN ONLY BEGIN ONCE THE HUMAN SPIRIT OF MAN IS BORN AGAIN THROUGH FAITH IN CHRIST, (Rom. 12-1-2; 1 Pet. 1:-15.)  THEN AND THEN ONLY, CAN OUR MINDS OR SOULS, (AND NOT OUR HUMAN SPIRITS,) START THE “DAY BY DAY” PROCESS OF CONTINUAL ‘RENEWAL’ OR ‘TRANSFORMATION,’ AS WE  CONTINUE TO GROW IN UNDERSTANDING AND THUS DOING THE SCRIPTURAL WILL OF GOD — THAT’S THE ‘REBIRTH’ OF THE SOUL OR MIND, AND THE  CONTEXT OF PETER’S WORDS! 

 

(Holy) Regenerating Baptism is the rite of initiation;

Wikipedia, [THIS RITE IS] “… conducted with floating water [OR THE SPRINKLING OF WATER] and children can be baptized on the faith of their parents.   Baptism is the participation in the church of Christ.  Baptism is thus considered as rebirth with water and spirit.” 

SPIRITUAL ‘INITIATIONS’ STEM FROM THE DOGMAS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ALL HER SPIRITUAL DAUGHTERS.  IN THE TRUE CONTEXT OF SCRIPTURE, ONLY SINCERE BELIEVING DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST MAY BE BAPTIZED BY IMMERSION IN WATER, MT. 28:19-20, AND PAUL CLEARLY EXPLAINED THE MEANING OF THE Bible Baptism in Rom. 6.

THE TRUE, BIBLICAL REBIRTH THOUGH ‘WATER’ IS FROM THE WORD OF GOD ITSELF, NOT FROM THE PHYSICAL WATER OF BAPTISM.  THE TRUTH OF THE WRITTEN BIBLE IS THE ‘WATER’ FROM WHICH WE ARE BORN, NOT THE APOSTLES’ FLOATING WATER.’  THE ‘SPIRIT’ TO WHOM BIBLE SCRIPTURE REFERS, IS THE HOLY SPIRIT HIMSELF, NOT THESE APOSTLES, WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BRING ‘SPIRITUAL’ ENLIGHTENMENT TO THE MEMBERS OF THEIR CHURCHES.

 

The [SAVING] sacraments can be given to the departed” 

The apostle movement, (OAC and NAC in particular,) believe that there are three sacraments; Holy Communion, the Holy Baptism, and Holy Sealing.  The OAC and NAC also believe that these sacraments can be given to the departed.” 

THE BIBLE STATES THAT IT IS APPOINTED FOR ALL MEN ONCE TO DIE, AND AFTER THAT THE [CERTAIN] JUDGMENT! (HEB. 9:27.)

The NAC actually have “divine services for the departed,” while TRUE SCRIPTURE STATES IN PROV. 9:5-6, “...THE DEAD KNOWS NOTHING AND THEY HAVE NO MORE REWARD… NEVERMORE WILL THEY HAVE A SHARE IN ANYTHING DONE UNDER THE SUN.” 

BIBLICALLY, NOT COMMUNION, SEALING, OR THE BAPTISM AFTER DEATH EXISTS, BUT JUDGMENT

JESUS HIMSELF COMMANDED IN MT. 28:19-20, “GO INTO THE WHOLE WORLD, MAKE DISCIPLES [BY PREACHING THE TRUE GOSPEL,] BAPTIZE [THESE BELIEVING DISCIPLES,] AND TEACH THEM, [THESE BELIEVING DISCIPLES] EVERYTHING I [JESUS,] HAVE SAID!”

ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD, THE DEPARTED CAN NEVER SHARE ‘HOLY COMMUNION,’ BE ‘SEALED,’ OR BE BAPTIZED IN CHRIST – NOT EVEN THE UNBELIEVING (SPIRITUALLY) DEAD, WHO ARE STILL PHYSICALLY ALIVE, BUT LOST WITHOUT A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER THROUGH HIS SON, THE LIVING SAVIOR, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. 

THE HUMAN ‘SOUL’ DIES PHYSICALLY WITH OUR PHYSICAL BODY, WHILE OUR HUMAN SPIRIT, (EITHER BORN AGAIN IN CHRIST OR LOST WITHOUT HIM,) GOES DIRECTLY TO HEAVEN OR TO HELL AT THE MOMENT OF PHYSICAL DEATH.  ACCORDING TO THE WHOLE CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE, NEITHER HEAVEN NOR HELL CAN BE A ‘STATE OF MIND;’ BOTH ARE ACTUAL PLACES IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD! 

IN THE PARABLE OF LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN, (LU. 16:19-31,) JESUS HIMSELF ALSO DESCRIBED LIFE AFTER DEATH AS BEING EITHER IN THE PLACE CALLED ‘HEAVEN,’ OR IN THE PLACE CALLED ‘HELL.’  THE BIBLICAL ANGELS OR SUPERNATURAL BEINGS OF HEAVEN CARRIED THE HUMAN SPIRIT (NOT THE SOUL OR MIND) OF THE DEPARTED LAZARUS DIRECTLY TO ETERNAL “PARADISE” AFTER PHYSICAL DEATH.  AFTER THE HUMAN SPIRIT OF THE RICH MAN DEPARTED FROM HIS BODY, THE ANGELS CARRIED HIM DIRECTLY INTO “THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH,” INTO HADES OR HELL, WHERE HE WILL BE TORMENTED IN FLAMES FOR ALL ETERNITY, (Ps. 63:9; Eph. 4:9.) 

AT CALVARY, JESUS HIMSELF ASSURED THE MAN ON THE CROSS NEXT TO HIS, “TODAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE” - NOT IN APOSTLES’ ‘BODY OF CHRIST;’ NOT IN THEIR ‘HEAVENLY STATE OF MIND,’ BUT IN PARADISE – OR THE BIBLICAL HEAVEN, (EPH. 4:8-10.) 

 

· “The souls of the departed dwell in the ‘body of Christ,’” or “among the living members”  

AS EXPLAINED UNDER THE BAPTISM OF THE DEPARTED, JESUS HIMSELF DECLARED IN LU. 16:19-31 THAT THE DEPARTED GO EITHER DIRECTLY TO HEAVEN, (WHICH IS A REAL PLACE IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD,) OR DIRECTLY TO HELL, (WHICH IS ALSO A REAL PLACE IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD!)

NONETHELESS, APOSTLES SAY THEY, THE ‘BODY OF CHRIST,’ HAVE ‘HEAVEN’ INSIDE THEIR ‘SPIRITUAL MINDS’ AND THEIR ‘DEPARTED DWELL IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.’  IN FACT THEN, THEIR ‘SPIRITUAL MINDS’ HAVE BECOME ‘HEAVEN’ FOR THE DEPARTED!  FURTHERMORE, IF THE LIVING AND THE DEPARTED DWELL TOGETHER HERE ON EARTH IN ‘THE BODY OF CHRIST’ WHERE CHRIST ALSO ‘RESIDES;’ LIVING APOSTLES ALSO BEING ‘SPIRIT’ JUST AS THE DEPARTED, HOW CAN IT BE POSSIBLE THAT THE SPIRITS OF THE DEPARTED DO NOT DWELL IN THE LIVING?  IN FACT, OAC ‘CHIEF’ APOSTLE NIEHAUS DECLARED AFTER THIS SUCCESSOR’S DEATH IN 1905, THAT HE IS “FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF KREBS.”  How grizzly!  [F.W. WERNER, ‘Die Dwaling van die Apostelsekte.] 

 

· The departed “will attain salvation for their souls,” [the Roman Catholic concept of ‘purgatory;] thus “the apostles offer up prayers for the departed

The OAC disciple elaborated, “So, what actually happens after our physical death?  Easy; the souls of those who dwelt in God, [HE MEANS IN THE OAC ‘BODY OF CHRIST,’] will attain salvation for their souls in God.  The natural man [OR THE UNENLIGHTENED MIND] might think that his [THE DEPARTED’S] soul enters into other people.  That is wrong.  [AS SAID: IF THE LIVING AND THE DEPARTED DWELL TOGETHER HERE ON EARTH IN A SPIRITUAL BODY; THE LIVING BEING ‘SPIRIT’ JUST AS THE DEPARTED, WHILE THE BODY OF CHRIST ‘RESIDES INSIDE’ THE ‘SPIRITUAL MINDS’ OF THE LIVING MEMBERS OF THE OAC, HOW CAN IT BE POSSIBLE THAT THE SPIRITS OF THE DEPARTED DO NOT DWELL IN THE LIVING — EXCEPT THAT THIS IS SCRIPTURALLY IMPOSSIBLE!  WHO ARE THOSE THE SPIRITS, THEN, THAT DWELL ‘AMONG’ OR ACTUALLY IN THE SPIRITUAL MINDS OF THEIR LIVING MEMBERS?]  Your soul comes to rest in God, in the Spiritual body, [THE BODY OF CHRIST,] in the kingdom of God…  Receiving the end of our faith – the salvation of your souls!’” 

Wikipedia states, “BUDDHISM TEACHES THAT THERE ARE… 6 REALMS OF REBIRTH…  LIKE ALL REALMS OF REBIRTH, REBIRTH IN [NARAKA] IS NOT PERMANENT…  EVENTUALLY EVEN DEVADATTA, [WHO TRIED TO KILL THE BUDDHA,] WILL BECOME A BUDDHA HIMSELF… [ONE CAN ONLY] ESCAPE THE ENDLESS MIGRATION OF REBIRTHS THROUGH THE ATTAINMENT OF NIRVANA, [THE PERFECT, HEAVENLY STATE WHERE THE SOUL EVENTUALLY COMES TO REST; SALVATION, OR THE ‘END OF BUDDHIST FAITH.’] 

“HINDUS TEACH THAT NARAKA IS… A LOWER SPIRITUAL PLANE… [THOSE] WHO FINISH THEIR QUOTA OF THE PUNISHMENTS [IN NARAKA] ARE REBORN WITH THE BALANCE OF ‘KARMA’ [OR GOOD AND BAD WORKS.]

“JUDAISM… BELIEVES IN… GEHENNA… A SORT OF PURGATORY WHERE ONE IS JUDGED BASED ON YOUR LIFE’S DEEDS…  PEOPLE ARE NOT IN GEHENNA FOREVER, THE LONGEST…  IS SAID TO BE 11 MONTHS…”  – Wikipedia.   

WHILE THE OAC AND OTHER APOSTLES EXCLUDE THE NOTION OF SIN, PUNISHABLE BY ETERNAL TORMENT IN HELL, THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH ALSO BELIEVES THAT ROMAN CATHOLIC DEPARTED ARE KEPT IN A TEMPORAL PLACE, CALLED PURGATORY.  IN CATHOLICISM, PURGATORY IS A PLACE OF PURIFICATION AND PUNISHMENT BEFORE THE ‘SOUL’ OF THE DEPARTED CAN BE ‘PRAYED THROUGH’ TO ATTAIN SALVATION AND HEAVEN’S ‘REST.’

IF THE SOULS OF THE OAC ‘WILL ATTAIN’ SALVATION ‘AND COME TO REST’ [OR RECEIVE THE ‘END OF THEIR FAITH;’ ‘REST’ OR ‘SALVATION’ FOR THEIR SOULS] IN THE HEAVENLY STATE OF MIND OF THE ‘BODY OF CHRIST,’ OR IN AND AMONG THE OAC MEMBERS, THROUGH THEIR PRAYERS FOR THE DEPARTED, THEY ARE TEACHING HINDUISM AND ROMAN CATHOLICIM. 

THE WORD OF THE LIVING GOD, HOWEVER, OPPOSES THE STRANGE TEACHING OF REINCARNATION, PURGATORY AND THE FALSE HOPE OF SALVATION AFTER PHYSICAL DEATH. 

HEB. 9:27 LEAVES NO DOUBT ABOUT LIFE AFTER DEATH AND STATES, “IT IS APPOINTED FOR [ALL] MEN ONCE TO DIE [PHYSICALLY,] AND AFTER THAT THE [CERTAIN] JUDGMENT.” 

THE BIBLE IS CLEAR ON THIS MATTER: SALVATION IS COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE AFTER PHYSICAL DEATH.  ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST IS A PERSONAL DECISION.  NO CHURCH SACRAMENT, BAPTISM RITE, OR ANY AMOUNT OF PRAYER FOR THE DEPARTED CAN EVER CHANGE THE DESTINATION OF THE DEPARTED IN ANY WAY!  FOR THE DEPARTED, DECISION-TIME IS OVER!  EVEN SINCERE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST CAN ONLY BE SAVED DURING THEIR PHYSICAL LIFETIME HERE ON EARTH THROUGH FAITH IN, AND OBEDIENCE TO THE RISEN CHRIST, (JN. 1:12-13.) 

 

In the context of the whole Bible, the purgatory of Roman Catholicism does not exist. 

Buddhist/Hindu reincarnation, ‘naraka’ and ‘nirvana,’ (or OAC and other apostles’ ‘spiritual’ and ‘heavenly’ state of mind do not exist. 

Judaism’s ‘gehenna’ is a fixation of the mind. 

The Jehovah’s Witness’ ‘annihilation’ of the ‘unsaved’ or the non-Jehovah Witness is a myth. 

The ‘soul sleep’ of the Seventh-day Adventist church is a fallacy. 

However, according to the contextual truth of the Bible, the love of the truth saves us while we are still alive, (2 Ths. 2:10.)  The Lord Jesus Christ Alone is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and NO one comes to the Father or STAYS in the Father except through Him! 

Salvation exists only in and through the complete atonement of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, and in no one else! 

Jesus, the sinless Lamb of God, took the place of all humanity “to pay the debt we could not pay.” 

He took the crown of thorns for you and me. 

He took the stripes, the mocking, the taunting, the humiliation, the indescribable pain for you and me. 

Please, please, repent from this dangerous doctrine and turn wholeheartedly to the Only Way of salvation, because heaven and hell are real, real places in the spiritual world! 

God loves humankind simply too much to see us miss eternal life with Him in heaven!
