Biblical or human truth People have to choose for which Truth they will want to go. Are they willing to clinch to Biblical Truth, gospel Truth or to what churches are presenting as a doctrinal truth? When looking at the present world, we can find lots of people who prefer to believe in not much […]
The Second Death In the Garden of Eden, death was pronounced as the penalty for the transgression there committed, and the whole of the Adamic race was involved in it. This was the unfortunate result of the first great Judgment of our race. — Rom. 5:12,16. “ Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into […]
When people ask what happens after death (the passing away) and where the dead are in god believing people can only try to give a picture of what the words in the Bible tell. There are also too many people who call themselves Christian, but do not believe many words of Christ and his heavenly […]
The Rich Man and The Beggar Finally, the superior position of the Pharisees and scribes (rich in spiritual things, clothed in purple and fine linen, representing their own estimate of their righteousness and hopes of royalty, and faring sumptuously every day — Psalm 69:22; Rom. 11:9) is contrasted with the outcast, beggarly condition of the […]

In order to get a clearer picture of what happens to people after death, it is not a bad idea to look at the background of the various parables that Jesus told. Previously we looked at the rich man who ended up in sheol (hell or the grave) and the beggar Lazarus who ended up […]
Many people forget that several stories and parables in the Bible are not to be taken literally and that they are a reflection or a lesson for mankind. Several times, the dead or people are depicted who may be hidden or in the womb of something or someone else. There are also stories of torments […]
In the Bible, people are spoken of as souls, living beings, in which case one could also think of soul and body as individuals. Those believing souls, as churchgoers, could form the ‘soul’ of the church community. Yet it had to be realised that when a soul or a person died, the Church did not […]
Around the 19th and beginning of the 20th century there were still several Biblestudents and Bible researchers who believed in fallen angels. Underneath we look at a vision or view by one of the writers on calling the dead, in the Biblestudents magazine The New Covenant Advocate King Saul and the Witch of Endor In […]

Continuing on the posed question of where the dead people might be, we continue to look at some answers given in one of the Biblestudents magazines in 1909 The Spirits in Prison “19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of […]
The Souls Under the Altar In Revelation 6:9-11 the souls of martyrs “under the altar” are said to cry, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” Some have taken this to mean that the martyrs were enjoying a conscious existence […]
The Thief on the Cross In his dying hours our Redeemer was associated with malefactors — “numbered with the transgressors.” (Isa. 53:12; Luke 23:39-43.)
