Did God Really Say Jesus Is Coming Back?

Yes ... yes he did.

Did God Really Say Jesus Is Coming Back?Did God really say Jesus is coming back?

Yes … yes he did.

What he said, was, “Men, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11

Jesus said, “You will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven.” Matthew 26:64

In John’s revelation from Christ he wrote, “Look, he is coming with the clouds every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. And all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” Revelation 1:7

So, yes, Christ will return. And when he does, he will bring and end to all things and usher in his kingdom. Believe it, don’t believe it, it’s up to you.

Did God Really Say We Would Get a New Body After We Died?

Yes ... yes he did

Did God Really Say We Would Get a New Body After We Died?Did God really say we would get a new body after we died?

Yes … yes he did.

Sort of.

Actually it is the Apostle Paul who writes, “I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. … For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.'” 1 Corinthians 15: 50-54

So we get a new body. One that endures, last forever, doesn’t die, rot, or decay. Your new body will be timeless, ageless, and indestructible. That’s the good news.

Bad new is, if you get tossed into the Lake of Fire you will be stuck in a body that is fireproof and never burns up. Which means there will be no end to the pain of the flames.

“In Hades, where he was in torment, the rich man looked up and saw far away …” Luke 16: 23–25 “The lake of fire is the second death.” Revelation 20:14. “Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.” Daniel 12:1–2.

Some claim there is no hell. But by some counts Jesus spoke about hell in 60 or so verses. So even Jesus acknowledged that hell is a real place and that’s important to know as you prepare for your future.

But whether you go to heaven or hell you get a new body. So there is that to look forward to.

Did God Really Write the Bible?

Yes ... yes he did.

Did God Really Write the Bible?Did God really write the Bible?

Yes … yes he did.

Sort of.

Here is what happened. “When the Lord finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave Moses the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.” Deuteronomy 9:10

So God wrote the first set of commands.

But when Moses came off the mountain and saw the people partying and worshiping a golden calf, he became angry, threw down the tablets and broke them. Which meant he had to start over. [This was waaaay before control-S and files saved in the Cloud]. Back up the mountain he went.

The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. So Moses chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the Lord had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands. Then the Lord came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the Lord. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming … Exodus 34:1-5

There is a long section where God recites the commands to Moses and then …

The Lord said to Moses, “Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.”  Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. [I hear writers can behave this way when they’re on a deadline.]  And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments. Exodus 34:27-28

Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai. Exodus 34:32

So God wrote the first set of ten commandments and it appears he dictated the second set to Moses, along with all the other commands.

Of course there is much more to the Bible than just his commands. But God wrote the first draft of the first section.
