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 some 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: Anthony
Question: What will be the deciding factor in establishing the merger of a one world order?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Anthony.

I do not believe there will be one defining factor. I think many factors are making up that decision today. For years now we have heard calls for a united world body. Those calls are getting louder and stronger by the day. The children of Satan are becoming bolder in their aspirations for world government. To answer your question, the economy, terrorism, government, education and religion will and are all factors.

We see the false war on terrorism playing out in the middle east which is really taking down leaders who refuse to go along with the globalist agenda. When the children of Satan are ready, they will crash the global economy and that combined with the other elements I mentioned above will be what causes the failure of the current world order and bring about the reality of the new one world government.

Day by day we see more people losing faith in government and the systems in place today. We see the media and the government itself telling us the mistakes they make and/or they do things so off the wall it only causes us to lose more faith in them. This is all by design for the outcome above, world government. Only when this current world order fails will another rise.

Question 2:

Name: Joseph
Question: What happens to a human once they die a physical death saved, and not saved? Do they go into a deep death sleep in their respective graves until Jesus comes at the seventh trump, or does their bodies return to the earth and their spirit goes back to the Father? If their spirit goes back to the Father what is their spiritual state? Are they aware of what has happened to them? Where exactly do they go when their spirit goes back to the Father, and what are they doing while they are there? Thank you!

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Joseph. 

When we pass away we instantly return to our Father in Heaven. These flesh bodies are very temporary and when we are done with them, we are done with them, forever. We rise into our true bodies which are our spiritual bodies which never get sick, old or die (1 Corinthians 15:35-55). This applies to both the sinner and the saint if you will. Before we get to far let us document this. Please turn your Bible with me to,

Ecclesiastes 12:7
7 “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”

God created all souls, the good, the bad and well, you fill in the blank.

It is interesting when you take your time thinking about this verse. You have the dust of the earth which is what our bodies are comprised of. When we die, it returns to the owner, the earth. However, when the spirit is free it returns to its owner, our Father…

How long does the transition from flesh to spirit take?

2 Corinthians 5:8
8 “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”

Instant. If you are absent from the body which means we have passed on, then you are with the Father, period. There is no middle ground, no roaming rooms, etc. You die and you are with God plain and simple.

The people who pass on are definitely aware, more so than we are today I would add though that would be my opinion. Where are they exactly you asked. There is a large gulf in Heaven that divides the good and the bad essentially. Please turn your Bible with me to,

Luke 16:26
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.”

This account is between Abraham and the Rich Man. The Rich Man did evil in his time on earth and he could see Abraham and Lazarus on the other side of the gulf together and the Rich Man wanted to be a part of that, but it was one day too late for him.

Joseph we have three past Bible Q&As that I would really like you to read that will provide further documentation and clarification. They can be found below.

Question 3:

Name: Kimberly
Question: I can’t figure out what the Bible says about tears in heaven. It is talked about 2 different times
Thank you

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Kimberly, thank you for the question.

I believe you are referring to the book of Revelation. Please turn your Bible with me to,

Revelation 7:17
17 “For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”

The time element that is being spoken of in this verses is after the Tribulation of Satan. Jesus Christ is the Lamb and He is the One who will spiritually feed us, (John 1:29). What are these waters spoken of here? Please turn your Bible with me to,

John 4:14
14 “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

These are the fountains of water Christ is speaking of and it is spiritual and given to us as an example so we can understand. We know life in this flesh age does not exist without water. Life for us in the eternity does not exist without the Living Water which is to say Jesus Christ.

Now why would God wipe away all tears from their eyes? For that answer let us turn one more time.

Revelation 21:4
4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

There will be no tears Kimberly as our Father will have erased death itself. The scripture will finally be fulfilled, “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory“, (1 Corinthians 15:55)? All wickedness will be blotted out, it will no longer exist (Revelation 21:8).

Then those who “overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son“, (Revelation 21:7).

Amen, Amen, Amen.

    Hey Brandon, I was wondering whether you mean we rise with our spiritual bodies, or we rise into them? To my understanding the spirit is the intellect of the soul and they are connected to each other. So, does the spiritual body reside inside the flesh body or is our incorruptible body awaiting us in heaven? I thought it resided inside the flesh body; however, how can this be if our spiritual bodies are to have some sort of solid form? I mean angels obviously can interact with our current dimension and can be seen by the flesh eye. Yet the soul is invisible to the flesh man, but can be seen by those in heaven. As a note for clarity: soul can mean the flesh body or the invisible entity we call oneself which is the person God put inside this flesh body at conception.

    • Two separate physical bodies. The spiritual body is waiting in heaven. You soul/spirit moves between the two.

    • Just chiming in, while you await Brandon’s response, DFG…that’s a great question! One that made me go….hmmm!

      I believe God’s inspired Word through Paul…explains this rather well, in 1 Corinthians 15:35-57…should you want to read it within context. Soul is *self*…regardless of which body we are in… spiritual or flesh…one grows old, weight may fluctuate, gripes and suffers illnesses…while the other does *not*… but I’ll share the following, hoping it would help a bit>>>>>

      I Corinthians 15:35 -37 “But some man will say, “How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:”

      *****Paul is comparing our flesh body with other living things, such as a grain of wheat. When the seed is separated from its parent plant, it is as naked as a new born baby. This is the body of the wheat, and this is not the grain that you see coming forth in new plants next year. This seed of wheat that you set aside for the next years crop is what must die before it can raise up again in a new form. That body of wheat is gone, and that is what happens to our flesh. It must die before the new beautiful spiritual body can come forth. We already know, that nowhere is it recorded that a flesh body will resurrect from the dead, but in the case of Christ’s body that *did* rise again, His body had to be *transfigured*…or flesh mankind simply could not *see* Him in this dimension.
      We understand that the body of the wheat…or of flesh that dies and is planted in the ground, is *not* the same body that springs forth into new life…it is the spiritual body that ascends to be with the Father, not the flesh…(mankind, would *not* see that spiritual body, unless it is transfigured at God’s Will)…so it is, when you plant any seed, flowers, corn, or wheat, there is an embryo deep inside of the body of that plant. As the body of the parent plant decays, it feeds this little embryo that is deep within that seed or kernel of corn. Then when the water, and temperature, and soil are just right, then that embryo springs forth into new life, and a new plant is formed. The time that it takes for the new spiritual life to come from the death of the old flesh body is instant. The instant that the flesh body dies, the soul / self…in it’s original spiritual or celestial body as the Father created it in the 1st Earth Age, is present with the Lord. So in other words, we currently have two (2) bodies at conception…spiritual / celestial…and…flesh / terrestrial…one we can clearly *see* in the flesh…the other we have to be *transfigured* in order for flesh mankind to *see* it. Paul could not have made it more simple, than the using of a grain of wheat in comparison to our flesh bodies, to help us understand this. Just as all of nature functions, so it is with man. God does His Work, in *NATURAL* ways…we are *NATURAL* just like the wheat and other living things…God is even *more* NATURAL than us…He is *SUPER NATURAL*…He gets it done *perfectly right*!
      If nothing else, DFG…I hope that revisiting those Scriptures mentioned above, will help shed some light on this subject for now!
      God Bless.

    • Driving for God good evening. We would rise into our spiritual bodies. I like the sense you are applying here. Spiritual bodies certainly have mass which would make it tough for them to fit in these ol bags of flesh we walk around in.

      I know you are already familiar with these verses, but allow me to share it with everyone else as I explain. 1 Corinthians 15:35-55 is a great read in understanding life after death and the differences in flesh and spiritual bodies. We are going to start in,

      1Co 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

      Sown in corruption, as in we are sown in the flesh, but when the flesh dies it is raised in incourruption, as in raised into our spiritual body.

      1Co 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

      Dishonor and weakness are both signs of the flesh while the spirit is glory and power. Why? It never gets sick, old or dies.

      1Co 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

      In bold is our key, we are raised into the spiritual body not that it is a part of us today. I do not believe our spiritual body has been taken off of the assembly line just yet. I think it would be created for us as we depart the flesh. I do not think we can document it either way though. It is a bit disturbing to think there are a bunch of bodies hanging on racks waiting for their hosts though. 🙂
