Appointed Unto Men Once to Die!! But After That???
AuthorHouse, 2006 - 216 pages
Are you uncertain about life after death, the destiny of the soul, the time and nature of the resurrection? This book is a comprehensive examination of the Biblical teaching regarding the destiny of the soul and the future resurrections. It is a careful examination of the use of the words ''Sheol'' and ''Hades'' to describe the state and condition of the immaterial part of humans following physical death. Within the Biblical context, the words are clearly distinct from the grave. Those words refer specifically to the destiny of the ''soul'' or the immaterial part of mankind.
Five groups are identified as separate and distinct. At death, the soul of each departs to a place Biblically called ''sheol'', ''hades'', ''paradise'', ''Abraham''s bosom'', ''heaven'' and ''hell''. The destiny of all believers, Jew and Gentile, is shown to be in ''sheol/hades\ However, it was relocated for believers who died after the resurrection of Jesus. The change in location and reasons for the change are examined in detail "comparing Scripture with Scripture." The destiny of non-believers, from all Biblical time periods, is also examined.
The nature and time of the resurrection of the bodies and souls of all humans, both believers and non-believers, including the final judgment are examined. Since some Bible scholars teach the trichotomy of humans, the destination of the ''spirit'' is also discussed.
The destiny of infants who die before knowing right and wrong, the destiny of King Saul and the destiny of the angels who sinned are also considered. Jonah, a type of Christ, is also explained historically and typologically. Several charts are included to illustrate the text. The book is scholarly, Biblical, dispensational, conservative and evangelistic. If you have any interest in life after death, as described in the Bible, you need this book.
