Bible Question and Answer
Welcome to our bi-weekly post Bible Question, Answer and Discussion where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer one of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.

Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.

Question 1:

Name: Paul
Question: Brandon,  Thanks for this great knowledge you place before us. Between you and Shepherd’s Chapel,  my knowledge of the word is getting better and my faith is getting stronger.  Please keep up this great work.  Did all the people who had died prior to Christ death on the cross, return to paradise in their spiritual bodies before Christ’ death? Where did their souls go when their flesh bodies  died?  Thanks-Paul


Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Paul and the note about our site. I am glad that it is helping you and we thank our Father for it.

It sounds like you are on right track so let me spell some things out here for others to benefit from as well. When Christ came to earth and died for us it opened the door for Salvation, as in Eternal life. The flesh and spirit of men has been the same since creation and nothing has or will change that. So 2 Corinthians 5:8 which states, “to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord” holds true throughout this age of flesh. So yes, those who have passed on including those who have passed on before the time of Christ are in Heaven. As a matter of fact, Christ went back to the souls that passed on before His time on earth to make Salvation possible for them as well. You can document that for yourself in 1 Peter 3:18-20.

Luke 16:19-31 gives us a great example of Heaven. Abraham would say to the Rich Man in verse 26, “between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.” Abraham is explaining there is a great divide in Heaven. The righteous are on one side while those who are not righteous are on the other. This does not mean they are condemned to death. Remember, we have the Millennium. It is true there are no second chances, but many people have never had a chance to begin with. Most churches of our time teach fables and lies, not the Word of our Father. God is fair and He will judge accordingly (Psalms 25:8).

In closing, 1 Corinthians 15:35-55 gives us a great description of the flesh and spiritual body. To make a note, the spiritual body has mass, it simply does not get sick, old or die unlike the flesh.

  1. what about Rev. 2/13

  2. You have been blessed with great answers by Brandon and Sue, Paul. WEB is indeed a wonderful ministry, in addition to daily Bible Studies with SC…we are certainly well fed God’s Truths…and are able to keep the *Watch* from a Christian perspective, between them both.

    Praises be to God for them both, in this time of “Famine” of the *END TIMES*…which is for hearing the Word of the Lord. (Amos 8:11).

    You’ve asked: “Where did their souls go when their flesh bodies died?”

    If you are interested in knowing what it is like when they get to *PARADISE*…on both the Good side and bad side of the “GULF”…as Brandon already pointed out (Luke 16:19-31)…I am attaching a link below to give you a very good idea, what it is like there.

    A great description is given in the *Apocrypha* (Goodspeed Apocrypha recommended by SC)…which was once part of the King James Version Bible. However, you should be cautioned though…that *not* all of the Apocrypha aligns with God’s Word in the Manuscripts…but SC recommends reading certain Books that *do* align…and 2 ESDRAS 7:75 – End, which is the Greek for EZRA is one of them.

    So just as a FYI in addition to what have already been shared with you and whomsoever will:

    May God continue to lead, guide, direct and touch all those who love and serve Him, in Christ Yeshua.

  3. why does the BiBle say Turkey is Satans home?

  4. Paul, here is one more for you.

    Ecc 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
    Ecc 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    When the body dies the soul returns to God, it has always been that way. Before Christ we lived by the law and no one could do that without sinning, very few were righteous enough so most went to the bad side of the gulf. When Christ was in the tomb for 3 days he went to the bad side of the gulf and offered the same salvation to them that we have today, which is to believe in Him. Many did believe in him and moved to the good side of the gulf. So now all things are equal, before Christ in the flesh and after.

    As a side note, these two verses prove there are no ghosts. God did not say sometimes and other times people get lost in between. God said whey people die their soul returns to HIm….period, no maybes, no exceptions. However people do confuse evil spirits with ghosts and they are not the same.
