i asked this question under a different topic, but i got no answers just yet, so i'm making a new topic for it cause i'm soooo confused bout this.
ok, first lemme lay down some facts first that abouna disscussed at a bible study before:
1. Once a person dies, he/she knows where they are going.... heaven or hell. if they are going to heaven, angels come and take them to the third heaven and they see Jesus, st. Mary, etc... but they don't see the "seventh heaven" and the place that no eye has seen or an ear has heard... if they are going to hell, they go to hell right away, and they will be thron into the fire right away. I have two stories that i can share that would pove the two directions if you like
2. In the second coming, we all will take a new body. The ppl that are going to heaven, they take a body that will bare the glory of god. and the ppl that are going to hell, they take a body that will not vanish from a couple of hours in the burning fire. I also have two stories that would prove this...
NOW, if everyone knows where they are going, whats the point of judgement day then?? in the bible, it says, that god will judge every one based on their actions/deeds, but we already know where we are going once we die??
when do we take this new body??? it looks as though we take it right away, but that doesn't go with what the bible says???
maybe for the ppl that will be living during the second coming, as abouna says, they will experience death, and resurrection all the same moment, so then they will take the new body??
i'm sooooo confused about this!!!
any help would be nice plz
