Questions from Foundation School Day 1 Feb 09 2020
When a person dies what happens to their spirit?
 

First let us define a person: Man is a spirit, he has a soul and lives in a body

References:

Observer that the creation of man and the forming of man’s body are two separate events.

Genesis 1:26-27

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,in the image of God he created them;male and female he created them.

Genesis 2:7

Then the Lord God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Secondly let us define death;

There are two deaths;

  1. Spiritual death: A separation from God
  2. Physical death: A separation from the body
 
There is an angel called death and he is responsible for physical deaths.
 
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 1 Cor 15:26
 
There is a second death, the lake of fire, this is the final death
 
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Revelation 20:14
 
The angel death itself will be cast into the lake of fire.
 
The Lake of fire is primary created for the devil and his band of fallen angels,
 
 

THE STORY OF LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN

Luke 16:22-23

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Before the resurrection of Jesus good people went to Abraham’s bosom and bad people went to hell

Luke 25:51-54

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, truly this was the Son of God.

When Jesus rose from the dead, He led captivity captive (Ephesians 4:8), when they die now they go to heaven.

Hebrews 12:

22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

 

 

Rev 20:11-13

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

 
As you mentioned that the spirit never dies, is that means that those who are in hell don’t die as well?
 
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
 
 
 
Rev 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 
Hell is a holding place managed by an angel called hell.
He, satan and death are doomed for the lake of fire. That is their future.
 
compared to the lake of fire, hell is a nice place because its not forever, but anyone that goes there ends up in the lake of fire.

Integrity of the Word of God
 
Key Scriptures: 
 
Matthew 12:33 (KJV) “Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.”
 
Psalm 19:7-9 (MSG) “…God’s reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a life tie guarantee.” 
 
Colossians 3:16 (KJV) “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…”  
 
John 6:63 (KJV) “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” 
 
 
 
” To live that supernatural life, it’s not enough to be born again. You have to grow your faith. 
 
To do that, you must train your mind in the word of God. God’s word says, “Let the word of God dwell in you richly.” How do you let the word of God dwell in you richly? It is through giving time to it. You’ve got to put the word in you, even when it is inconvenient. For example, play it in your car on your way to work. Sometimes it not enough to just play Christian music. 
 
The world tells us that experience is the best teacher. It is not. The Word of God is the best teacher. 
 
The word of God teaches us the importance of the words we speak into our lives. John 6:63 says “…the word that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” Are you speaking words of spirit and of life? The greatest gift God gave us is the ability to speak words. Therefore, speak words that are life, every time. 
 
Words are substance. Words don’t just go away. Words are not idle. They don’t seize to exist. In the spirit realm, there’s no forgetfulness. 
 
Did you know that your life is a result of all your words put together? In the spiritual realm, you are the summation of your words. You didn’t get to where you are now over night. 
 
 
The word of God is light. Under different light, we have different realities. Therefore, your life depends on which light you are operating under. 
 
 
The only things that can destroy words are words. If you find yourself in a certain predicament, it is not because of your parents or your circumstances. It is because of your words. 
 
You can take charge of your life with your words. The word lets us know that death and life is in the power of your tongue. 
 
Therefore, you need to renew your mind and start speaking right. Kings reign by their words. Start straightening your life out by your words. Otherwise other people will. 
 
Excuses is what guarantees you are going to remain where you are. Excuses keep you under. 
 
To begin speaking the word of God, you must be full of the word of God. Mediation drives the word of God into your spirit. Don’t meditate on other people’s negative words. 
 
So, when life gives you questions, you answer with God’s word. Speak the word. Don’t react but respond with the word. Everyone is always thinking about something constantly. Even in our sleep, we are thinking. 
 
You’ve got to grow your faith. There is no other choice. Be encouraged, remember there was a time when Pastor Chris was at our faith level. 
 
If you don’t build your faith, you can’t do much with it.  You have to be trained in the world. You have to grow your faith big. 
 
Only when the word of God becomes your mindset, will you begin to live it.  Therefore, the first ingredient necessary for change is your mind. 
 
At work, I saw a poster that said “What got you here won’t get you there.” How very true! What got you here, can only keep you here. It can’t take you further in life. 
 
You can’t reap where you have not sowed. When Jesus taught us this principle, he wasn’t just talking about finances. We’ve got to sow the right words. You speak your way to greatness. 
 
Psalm19:7 let’s us know we can bank our life in the word: “God’s reputation is twenty-four-carat Gold, with a lifetime guarantee.” 
 
Don’t get too comfortable. You’ve got to put more of God’s word in you. So keep pressing on.”
