What Happens When We Die?

John 11.25-26 records, Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die. Do you believe this?


One of the questions Christians have is when will we see Jesus? Is it upon our death immediately from this body or is it at a later date when He raises this body from the dead? Do we leave this body and join Jesus in some other state of being when we die or do we sleep until He returns to earth and raises us with this body to newness of life? (more…)


Is Your Strength Holding You Back?

2 Corinthians 12.9 records, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness. Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

Only His Work Counts

Acts 17.31 declares He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the man He has imagesappointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead.

The crucifixion marked the end of heaven being earned by good deeds. In the crucifixion of the Perfect One God made clear that all the good deeds of all people were insufficient for getting them to heaven.

All religions and all people from all time have always tried to measure themselves by their good deeds hoping those outweighed their bad deeds by just enough to get them to heaven. God says all of our good deeds are as menstrual cloths to Him, that no one is good not even one. (more…)
