How Does God Really Feel About “Death”?
I don’t know if you’ll ever hear a sermon topic with this title… but let’s give it a try.
We’ll get right to it without the usually formalities… as I’m getting a late start… and we won’t have much time together.
1. What does God “feel” about death…???
If you listen to the usual “christian” clap-trap… God must “like” it… why? Because the usual prattling of christians is that “…as soon as you, you go to heaven, or to hell.” And if you go to heaven, AS SOON AS YOU DIE… then of course God must be happy to welcome you home… so, God must just LOOOOOVE DEATH. — ARE YOU LAUGHING YET? Yeah, I know it’s ridiculous, right?
And if you’re a sinner and you die, God sends you to hell, right away, to get you out of His hair, until He can group all of you together in one “judgment day” for His convince – don’t cha see – and then He’ll toss all of you into the lake of fire at one time… no messing around… right?
So either God must see “death as a blessing” — as He gets to be with you (His child) — or God must see “death as a hassle” as now He has to deal with you (if you’re a child of satan) and you’re interfering
with His day.
OK… let’s get something straight… All these religious knuckleheads who say “Death is a blessing” … are knuckleheads.
Death is not a blessing.
Death is a curse.
Death is the opposite of life.
Life is a blessing.
It’s pissing me off that “christians” have such loose language and unclear thoughts when it comes to these vital topics of life and death and what is revealed in God’s word about the matter.
Death is not “another form of life”!!!!!! That is bull shit. Death is the opposite of life.
How does God feel about death ???
Well… the first mention of death in the Bible is in God’s talk with Adam.
“To die shall you be dying.” He says.
How does God feel about death… Well, from this passage in Genesis — it’s a damn serious topic, right?
“To die shall you be dying”… sound serious. And having a “serious” chat with your newly minted “son” — can’t be easy. (Keep in mind, Adam is referred to as a “son of God”… and keep in mind that Adam was ignorant… and talking to an ignorant child is never easy.)
So, how does God “feel” about death?
If the “christians” are right… and death is not death… then death must be a friend, right?
But, I say those yahoos are wrong… death is death. And death is no friend of us or God.
In fact, our beloved I Corinthians 15:20-28 reveals that DEATH IS GOD’S ENEMY too.
Most people… if they have ANY emotion over death… they CRY… a few disturbed folks throughout history might be happy about death… but they’re sick… forget them. Most folks CRY over death.
It’s the bullshit artists that tell us that death is another form of life, and suggest that death is a good thing. And “christians” fall into that silliness too.
Death is rough.
Death is not fair.
Death is the opposite of life.
Death is mankind’s enemy.
Death is the enemy of God.
And Death is the last enemy on God’s list to tame, dismantle, abolish, sweep under the rug…
“THE LAST ENEMY IS BEING ABOLISHED; DEATH… says I Cor 15:26.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, even as through one man sin entered into the world, and through sin death (ENTERED INTO THE WORLD), and thus death passed through into all mankind, on (THE BASIS OF) which all sinned – 13 for until law sin was in the world, yet sin is not being taken into account when there is no law; 14 nevertheless death reigns from Adam unto Moses, over those also who do not sin in the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him Who is about to be.
I COR 15…
20 (Yet now Christ has been roused from among the dead, the Firstfruit of those who are reposing.
21 For since, in fact, through a man came death, through a Man, also, comes the resurrection of the dead.
22 For even as in Adam all are dying… thus also in Christ shall all be vivified.
23 Yet each in his own class: the Firstfruit, Christ; thereupon those who are Christ’s in His presence;
24 thereafter the consummation(:), whenever He may be giving up the kingdom to His God and Father, whenever He should be nullifying all sovereignty and all authority and power.
25 For He must be reigning until He should be placing all His enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy is being abolished: death.
27 For He subjects all under His feet. Now whenever He may be saying that all is subject, it is evident that it is outside of Him Who subjects all to Him.
28 Now, whenever all may be subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also shall be subjected to Him Who subjects all to Him, that God may be All in all.)
And don’t forget… Christ went to the cross…
He DIED… And God was not a happy camper.
Death ROBBED God of His Son.
But what was accomplished in His Son’s death was so great, that 3 days later, God, for the first time, broke death’s grip. God raised Christ from the dead UNABLE to die again.
And that changes everything.
We’ll talk later.
Grace to you.
Copy and paste this in other forums.
Christ’s death and resurrection changes everything.
IT IS THE GOOD NEWS.
