An Extract Out Of Josephus’s Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades
1. NOW as to Hades, wherein the souls of the of the good things they see, and rejoice in the righteous and unrighteous are detained, it is necessary to speak of it. Hades is a place in the world not regularly finished; a subterraneous region, wherein the light of this world does not shine; from which circumstance, that in this region the light does not shine, it cannot be but there must be in it perpetual darkness. This region is allotted as a place of custody for souls, ill which angels are appointed as guardians to them, who distribute to them temporary punishments, agreeable to every one’s behavior and manners.
2. In this region there is a certain place set apart, as a lake of unquenchable fire, whereinto we suppose no one hath hitherto been cast; but it is prepared for a day afore-determined by God, in which one righteous sentence shall deservedly be passed upon all men; when the unjust, and those that have been disobedient to God, and have given honor to such idols as have been the vain operations of the hands of men as to God himself, shall be adjudged to this everlasting punishment, as having been the causes of defilement; while the just shall obtain an incorruptible and never-fading kingdom. These are now indeed confined in Hades, but not in the same place wherein the unjust are confined.
3. For there is one descent into this region, at whose gate we believe there stands an archangel with an host; which gate when those pass through that are conducted down by the angels appointed over souls, they do not go the same way; but the just are guided to the right hand, and are led with hymns, sung by the angels appointed over that place, unto a region of light, in which the just have dwelt from the beginning of the world; not constrained by necessity, but ever enjoying the prospect of the good things they see, and rejoic in the expectation of those new enjoyments which will be peculiar to every one of them, and esteeming those things beyond what we have here; with whom there is no place of toil, no burning heat, no piercing cold, nor are any briers there; but the countenance of the and of the just, which they see, always smiles them, while they wait for that rest and eternal new life in heaven, which is to succeed this region. This place we call The Bosom of Abraham. Continue reading “Flavius Josephus on Heaven & Hades, to the Greeks”
By the law we are judged for our sins and condemned to suffer and die. But Jesus came to save us by love, by His grace, by His mercy, showing that love and mercy are greater than the law! And Jesus Himself said His Law of Love is now all the law, as well as all the prophets!
But when people are not willing to receive the revelations grace gives and the freedom that grace gives, they always turn back to legalism and the law to prove their points, that it is not according to the law, not according to Moses, or not according to Paul! And when they do that, they are also turning their backs on the freedom of grace and the liberty which the Lord has given us! It all boils down to whether you’re going to believe more in Moses or Jesus!
You’ve either got to go all the way by grace or you’ve got to go all the way by law, because if you go back to the law even on ONE point, you are obligated to keep the WHOLE law! (Rom.11:6; Jam.2:10).
So “stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free!” (Gal.5:1). Long live Love!–Amen?
As we wrote earlier in our blog, that we can expect the way the New World Order set up the Muslims by infiltration and radicalisation, with the objective to destroy them as a religious force, that the Globalists will and IS doing the same to Christianity, is now coming true with the following news that a Christian School had to defend Scriptures and is now forbidden to teach them; thus nullifying Western cherished Free Speech! Because that is what it is all about. The ‘Silencing of the Lamb!’ And silencing His children!
You see all these attacks against Islam by “Christians” (Think Alex Jones! Watson! Geert Wilders, Tommy Robinson, These last 2 both Israel supporters, by the way, that PROMOTES war against Iran and WW3) – WILL backfire on the Children of God! Therefore extreme wisdom is warranted for and expected of His Children, not to dig a pit for others that they will fall into themselves, nor to move a stone that will be rolled over them later.
But that is what is now happening in America with these dumbed-down, dumb, un-spiritual, Redneck “Christian” Zionist, blind leaders & Evangelical stretcher cases. For years the US State Department on their website, has the Bible already condemned and put down as “Hate Literature!” And that is and remains the agenda of the Antichrists!
As they did with Islam – British ‘Intelligence’ kickstarting the Muslim Brotherhood already in the early 20th century & French Íntelligence’ keeping Khomeini on ice until they planted him in Iranian government! – these Antichrist forces are setting Christians up for infiltration, entrapment, and final inside assault and destruction from within, likewise.
We knew that it was coming as it is predicted by Daniel the Prophet in Daniel 11 and 12, but ‘my gawd’, why do we have to give it so much help for it to come to pass so soon. Surely the children of this world are wiser then the Children of Light! As Jesus said. Why do people have to succumb to Muslim bashing? We are expected to LOVE everyone and even our enemies!!! What’s wrong with these people! Continue reading “As Foreseen & Expected Muslim Scripture Attack Leads To BIBLE Scripture Attack on Freedom of Speech!”
I tell you, Jesus never talked about it, so why should YOU? Like this preacher says, PREACH CHRIST Who died for Sinners! He came to seek and to save that which was lost!
I tell you it must be hard to go to church. I hardly ever do, but I do have fellowship.. with other loving missionaries who are trying to reach other sinners like them SELVES! How about you? The only difference between sinners and them, is that they are SAVED sinners. Forgiven sinners. Returned sinners who came back to their Creator. And he KNOWS that NO ONE is perfect. MUST WATCH!
