Bang, Bang,Your Dead.

Written by Rev.Anthony Smith

Bang, Bang,Your Dead. Preachingrepparttar Gospel is an exciting adventure intorepparttar 147036 past, present and future. Many believe that humanity will continue at its present rate and eventually come together in peace and love. I'm sorry to say that this is just another lie fromrepparttar 147037 father of all lies, Satan. Man is destined to die, no matter what, age, race, color, weather they be rich or poor. Death will not be denighed. As a child, I believe that many of you played games with your friends, some played, Cops and Robbers, and others Cowboys and Indians. The game was alwaysrepparttar 147038 same, when we came upon our opponent we said, Bang, Bang,Your Dead. Lets look atrepparttar 147039 reality ofrepparttar 147040 truth. This part of verse comes from Zec 14:12; “Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.” This scripture is stating thatrepparttar 147041 flesh of mankind, that refuse God, shall be obliterated as they stand, bang, bang, your dead for real. Gog & Magog, Armageddon, andrepparttar 147042 Last war with Satan, which followsrepparttar 147043 1000 year reign of Christ, all haverepparttar 147044 same thing in common. Death and destruction of man-kinds way of life. We as ministers have just scratchedrepparttar 147045 surface ofrepparttar 147046 truth in scripture. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? Remember how that God decided to destroy all because ofrepparttar 147047 unrighteousness. Howrepparttar 147048 people had forgotten about God and His laws and statutes. How they turned to false gods and idols, homo-sexuality and all manner of debochery? Gen 19:28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward allrepparttar 147049 land ofrepparttar 147050 plain, and beheld, and, lo,repparttar 147051 smoke ofrepparttar 147052 country went up asrepparttar 147053 smoke of a furnace. Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, andrepparttar 147054 cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, sufferingrepparttar 147055 vengeance of eternal fire. Well my friends, look around you today?“Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet,” No where to run ,no where to hide, no time to repent, no time to ask forgiveness nor say good by to this life. Consumed by fire as you stand upon your feet and atrepparttar 147056 next moment surrounded by everlasting fire, heat and smoke. Each day that we live brings us closer to death, for somerepparttar 147057 joy of death and othersrepparttar 147058 shame of it. I am just an old country preacher, some call a Hell Fire and Brimstone Man. But as this world races closer torepparttar 147059 end of times, we must warn them that are outsiderepparttar 147060 will of God. Jude gives merepparttar 147061 inspiration that I need to continue to preach. Jude 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. As I have said before, I will say again, It doesn't matter what you believe, what matters is what Gods word says. Many are going after, Scientology, Budism, Musleumism and many other isms. Science isrepparttar 147062 bigest false god that runs rampant in this world today. Christians are being attacked by scientist that are trying to proverepparttar 147063 existance of some other way of evolution. Man has corrupted himself with, false doctrine, unrighteous laws and attrocities hand over fist. Christianity has been and will be blamed for all of mans woes. Jude 1:22-23, And of some have compassion, making a difference: There is still a place for compassion. Compassion among those that are willing to hear with their ears and for those that are willing see with their eyes. And others save with fear, pulling them out ofrepparttar 147064 fire; {The fire of Hell} hating evenrepparttar 147065 garment spotted byrepparttar 147066 flesh. The garment,repparttar 147067 false religion and attitude of man. Every man has religion, every man believes in something, Buda, Allah, False Prophets, Money, Power, Prestige, Government and even themselves. They all believe that what they are doing is right. But their path is leading to a death of all deaths. All of this is religion.

Judaism and Reincarnation

Judaism and Reincarnation

How prevalent isrepparttar Jewish belief in reincarnation today? How does it differ fromrepparttar 146892 Asian belief? What dorepparttar 146893 Rabbis think of it?

The root ofrepparttar 146894 word " Torah" isrepparttar 146895 verb "to instruct". Torah's primary function is to teach us how to live Jewishly, in harmony with G-d's will. As such,repparttar 146896 basic levels of scriptural interpretation lead to a practical understanding of mitzvot and related Jewish values.

" Many Jews are surprised to learn, or may even wish to deny, that an integral part of Jewish belief..." The Torah, however, is a multi-layered document. Many of its deeper levels of interpretation are not readily accessible; and they may not lend themselves to obvious, practical application in daily life. As such, these more esoteric aspects of Torah are not of interest to significant segments ofrepparttar 146897 Jewish population, including some rabbis and scholars.

Consequently, many Jews are surprised to learn, or may even wish to deny, that reincarnation -repparttar 146898 "revolving" of souls through a succession of lives, or "gilgulim" - is an integral part of Jewish belief. But this teaching has always been around. And it is firmly rooted in source-verses.

Examples abound. Ramban, one ofrepparttar 146899 greatest commentators onrepparttar 146900 Torah (and onrepparttar 146901 Talmud), and a seminal figure in Jewish history, hints several times that reincarnation isrepparttar 146902 key to penetratingrepparttar 146903 deep mysteries involved inrepparttar 146904 mitzvah of yibum (the obligation ofrepparttar 146905 brother of a childless, deceased man to marryrepparttar 146906 widow). In his explanation of Gen 38:8, he insists that Yehudah and his sons were aware ofrepparttar 146907 secret of reincarnation, and that this was a major factor in their respective attitudes towards Tamar.

" The responsibility lies with us..." The Jewish understanding of reincarnation is different from Buddhist doctrines. It in no way leads to fatalism. At every point of moral decision in his life, a Jew has complete free choice. If not for freedom of choice, how unfair it would be of G-d to make demands of us - especially when reward and punishment is involved! Reincarnation does not imply pre-determination. It is, rather, an opportunity for rectification and soul-perfection.
