DEATH IS A CURSE
“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread
till thou return unto the ground,
for out of it wast thou taken;
for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”
We can serve OUR CREATOR GOD with ONE CONSENT,
as HE has Commanded, or we can continue
on the paths of the wicked Powers-that-be and their religions.
This is the choice before us.
It was government official and diplomat Benjamin Franklin who said, “Nothing is certain except death and taxes”, and it would appear that he was spot on. However, government gives much more attention to taxes than to death. Given the fact that it is death that is an ever-present horrible facet of life in this World, we should focus more on it, and seek reasons as to why it has existed since the BEGINNING.
After our loved ones expire, their lives end as water under a bridge and as the wind that passes away and is no more. We remember them, but of a truth they are no more involved in our lives. Then we accept their deaths and leave it at that though death surrounds us day-in and day-out. We never stop to think that death entails so much more than just people dying and the painful heartache that follows.
GOD’s Hosts of Heaven, mountains, boulders, trees, rivers, and bodies of water seem to have lived forever, but mankind are given eighty plus years of life and then we are gone. Actually, after CREATION people lived for hundreds of years and when they turned to wickedness and away from GOD’s WALK of Life, HE shortened their days.
“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” Genesis 6:1 – 3
Given the above passage, we have to believe that the people GOD Created were supposed to live longer, reason being, Methuselah lived for almost a thousand years (Genesis 5:27). We have to also believe that it was because of Adam that the CREATOR instituted death for disobedience. It’s like the CREATOR knew from the very time HE Created man that he would defy HIM.
“The LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2:16,17
This Curse has been with us since the BEGINNING just as has GOD’s WORD regarding Adam’s punishment for eating from “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. And let’s not forget the Curse that fell upon women at childbirth.
“Unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken:” Genesis 3:17 - 19
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” Genesis 3:16
We might never know GOD’s Blessed intentions for mankind before Adam’s disobedience that made death a certainty with the great pain, grief, and suffering that accompanies it.
We learn from the Hebrew Scriptures/”Old Testament” that GOD uses death to end the life of the wicked, the disobedient, and the Elderly. Few people look at death in this manner. Nevertheless, in that the CREATOR has made death a most traumatic experience for us in this World, is it wise for people to make of it something more than GOD has intended?
IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH
When the CREATOR said that we came from dust and would return to dust, HE never implied that the dead would go to HIS Heaven. Anytime people cry uncontrollably at the death of others, fall into deep depressions, and cannot function perceptually and mentally, it is ludicrous to believe that this is what the living must endure before the dead can go to Heaven. Also, many people die from accidents, murder, and endless, long-suffering diseases; what makes them qualify for Heaven? JC did not spare them, though they believed in him, so how are they promoted to Heaven when GOD’s Chosen Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and HIS Beloved Children of Israel were never afforded this seemingly divine opportunity?
It is because of man-made religions that people believe they and their loved ones will go to Heaven after death. But can this really be true, and where are any valid facts to prove that this is of GOD’s TRUTH. On what Scripture or the CREATOR’s WORD can we base this information, as we can base GOD’s WORDS on death for eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil? When the CREATOR said that we came from dust and would return to dust, HE never implied that the dead would go to HIS Heaven. People will say anything to persuade and encourage others to feel better about certain sad and depressing situations. For example it is believed that rain on wedding days is good luck, but in fact it can demolish this outdoor occasion altogether.
I know people do not want to hear this, but to be absolutely truthful, the dead do not go to Heaven after death, and the GOD that formed us never said that we would. Furthermore, there is a plethora of factual Scriptural information to prove that we will NOT die and go to Heaven but to the appointed gravesite for our placement. Let us live and look forward to a long and prosperous life, which IS what OUR CREATOR has told us.
“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:7,8
We have no Scripture on Men of GOD ascending to Heaven after their deaths. Only GOD’s Prophet Elijah went to Heaven, and he was very much alive when he did.
“Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.” II Kings 2:9 – 12 (See also Malachi 4:5 for it is prophesied of Elijah’s return.)
For two reasons the dead do not go to Heaven. GOD made Earth for mankind, and HE deems the dead “unclean”. The MOST HOLY CREATOR GOD would not for any reason expose HIMSELF to any uncleanness. HIS MOTTO is to “Fear ME and keep My Commandments” for this is the ONLY WAY to attain righteousness, holiness, and a long and serene happy life.
“KNOW THEREFORE THIS DAY, AND CONSIDER IT IN THINE HEART, THAT THE LORD HE IS GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE, AND UPON THE EARTH BENEATH: THERE IS NONE ELSE. Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.” Deuteronomy 4:39,40
“Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.” Deuteronomy 5:16
“The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men. THE DEAD praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.” Psalm 115:16,17
“The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead:” Numbers 5:1,2
“He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days. He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean. Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is yet upon him. This is the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that come into the tent, and all that is in the tent, shall be unclean seven days.” Numbers 19:11 – 14
IS JC THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD, AND DOES HE END SUFFERING FOR CHRISTIANS
Christianity is a world-wide religion mainly because two billion people have faith that via belief in JC they will attain eternal life and go to Heaven after their death. Well, given what the CREATOR said in the BEGINNING, we have to know that this is not true. Given GOD’s WORD on HIS LAW, Righteousness, prosperity, and rebelliousness, can it be true that JC suffered on a cross in order that those who believe in him won’t have to endure suffering? Again, given GOD’s WORD that would also be a negative.
All of us know of a Christian who was not saved by JC, and as a result the person died. All of us know of a Christian who suffered from long-term pain and misery and was not spared from death. No one knows better than I that JC is not “Saviour of the World”, not “Lord and Saviour”, and that he certainly does not end suffering.
Yesterday I lost my precious Mother whose deadly transition began about forty days ago resulting from a fall. She was in the hospital for about a week, released, and spent her last days at home in constant pain and agony calling on JC for help until she transpired. My Mother was a Christian and she believed in JC with all her heart. I am a witness that JC does not save or even suffer so that others will be spared this pain. It is all a lie, and I grew more upset hearing others speak about her belief while I watched my Mother lie in a hospital bed in her bedroom begging her JC “Saviour” to end the daily torment and endless discomfort she endured until sedated with morphine.
My Mother was not ready to go, and talked about wanting to get better all the time. Knowing this makes it so hard to deal with my loss, as she talked about her failing health and wanting "to go somewhere and have some fun". My heart is so heavy just thinking about her words.
If there is any truth to this man-god, JC, surely he was aware of his job description to keep my mother from suffering. And if there is any truth to this man-god, the fact that she was not ready to die and go to Heaven, he should not have let her die, period.
It’s not so much that my Mother’s death, per se plagues me, but rather it’s the fact that she wanted to live, and that the JC in whom she believed was nowhere to be found to end her pain and suffering and much less able to save her from death. And did I ever know that JC and this Roman Christianity are the greatest frauds ever to hit GOD’s Earth.
My firm conviction is that if mankind is to live on GOD’s Earth, then they must do all that OUR CREATOR GOD Commands and Requires of us. And he never once Commanded or even mentioned that we should put faith and belief in JC or in any other gods – actually HE Commanded the contrary! Moreover, HE said that all who believed in another god would perish. Are we to really ignore GOD’s WORDS and follow the ways and imaginations of mere men, or should we be the wiser and FEAR GOD and Keep HIS Commandments.
“God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.” Exodus 20:1 – 6
“Fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” Deuteronomy 6:2 - 7
“I AM THE LORD THY GOD FROM THE LAND OF EGYPT, AND THOU SHALT KNOW NO GOD BUT ME: FOR THERE IS NO SAVIOUR BESIDE ME.” Hosea 13:4
“It shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 8:19,20
Because the Romans shoved the CREATOR GOD of Israel under the rug with their Christian religion and belief in this man, the World knows nothing about GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, HIS VOICE, and/or HIS COUNSEL. I don’t have to tell anyone that weekly Sunday Church Services have cast the CREATOR GOD of Israel into oblivion and replaced HIM with this man-god, JC, never once mentioned by the JEALOUS CREATOR GOD that made it absolutely clear that HE would not give HIS GLORY to another – and for GOOD REASON.
“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Isaiah 42:8
“O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O COME, LET US WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN: LET US KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER. FOR HE IS OUR GOD; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart…” Psalm 95:1 - 8
BELIEVE IN THE CREATOR OUR MAKER AND BELIEVE IN HIS TRUTH
“HE WHO BLESSETH HIMSELF IN THE EARTH SHALL BLESS HIMSELF IN THE GOD OF TRUTH; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes. For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for AS THE DAYS OF A TREE ARE THE DAYS OF MY PEOPLE, AND MINE ELECT SHALL LONG ENJOY THE WORK OF THEIR HANDS. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 65:16 – 25
The CREATOR GOD has always made RIGHTEOUSNESS HIS focus and LIFE to those who will live and do HIS Book of the Law.
“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.” Ezekiel 18:20 – 24
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Jeremiah 31:31 - 33
“Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.” Ezekiel 37:21 - 28
LET US CHOOSE LIFE FOR IT IS TIED TO GOD’s RIGHTEOUSNESS
Indeed death is a painful and horrific Curse for all of us who have watched our loved ones die, as well as for all who have lost the ones dearest to our hearts. We have to understand that this Curse of Death is what the CREATOR has in place for the wicked, for the rebellious, and for all who worship another god. HE will not change; HE is the CREATOR GOD, and by HIS own admission it is HE that said HE does not know of another god.
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” Isaiah 43:10,11
“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed. Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?” Isaiah 44:8 - 10
For long enough we have lived our lives as we choose (Deut. 12:8), but during these latter days let us SEEK after the CREATOR GOD that left HIS PLACE due to our great abominations and wickedness against HIM (Hosea 5:15). However, if we are obedient to HIS LAW and HIS COUNSEL, HIS PROMISES are to end our captivity and bring HIS Peace and HIS Happiness to HIS Earth after the “Day of the LORD”, therefore, let us Return to OUR GOD and be grounded in HIS TRUTH and in HIS Book of the Law. It is my hope and prayer that the MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD will let us live life to the fullest with never ending happiness on an Earth replete with HIS Shining LIGHT of Righteousness. The GOD of Israel never said people would die and go to Heaven, but HE did say that HE would “swallow up death” and “wipe away tears from all faces”. How HE will accomplish this is a mystery to me, but if HE said it, then HE will do it for the CREATOR GOD does not lie.
When GOD of Israel saved the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage, to which HE so often makes reference, HE proved that HE ALONE is the ONE GOD to be WORSHIPPED and EXALTED above JC and above all other gods. Therefore, let us SEEK and CALL on the GOD of Israel with ONE CONSENT and pray that HE will hear our prayers to end this wicked White Supremacist World Order and establish HIS OWN Earth of Righteousness, Peace, and Happiness for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD,
until the day that I rise up to the prey:
for my determination is to gather the nations,
that I may assemble the kingdoms,
to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger:
for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
For then will I turn to the people a pure language,
that they may all call upon the name of the LORD,
to serve him with one consent.”
“In this mountain shall the LORD of hosts
make unto all people a feast of fat things,
a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow,
of wines on the lees well refined.
And he will destroy in this mountain the face
of the covering cast over all people,
and the vail that is spread over all nations.
He will swallow up death in victory;
and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces;
and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth:
for the LORD hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day,
Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him,
and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him,
we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
Isaiah 25:6 – 9
