Session 6 - An Examination of Scriptures Commonly Used to Show the Dead are Alive

Several scriptures seem to be unclear concerning the death of men such as Elijah, and have been misconstrued to indicate that the dead are alive in heaven or hell. However, none of these scriptures actually say that. We need to consider the greater context of Scripture, as well as Hebrew grammar, to properly understand that those who have died are in the grave awaiting one of the resurrections.  Verses: Gen. 5:18-24; Heb. 11:4, 5, 7-8, 11, 13; John 3:13; Jude 14-15; 1 Sam. 28:3-20; Deut. 18:9-15; 2 Kings 2:11, 15-17; Matt. 10:16-17, 24-28; 17:1-3; 9; Acts 4:32; 1 Pet. 2:11; Luke 9:30-31  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...

Session 4 - The Dead will get up at the Rapture, or one of the Resurrections

Session 4 - The Dead will get up at the Rapture, or one of the Resurrections

This session illustrates that people in the Bible, such as Job, did not look to go to Heaven immediately upon death, but rather they looked to the resurrection where they would receive life again in a spiritual body. It also discusses the difference between the phrases “raised from the dead,” and “raised out from among the dead,” as well as the type of resurrected body Jesus had and that we Christians will have.   Verses: Rev. 19:11; 20:3-7, 11-15; Job 19:25-27; Phil. 3:20-21; Luke 14:12-14; 24:36-39; 1 Cor. 15:35-44, 51-55; Isa. 26:19; Ezek. 37:1-14; Ps. 37:9-11, 22; Dan. 12:12; Matt. 13:19; 17:9; 22:23-30; John 11:21-24; 14:1-3; Acts 3:15; 4:1-2; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Col. 3:12  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...

Session 3 - The Dead are in the Grave, not in Heaven or “Hell”

Session 3 - The Dead are in the Grave, not in Heaven or “Hell”

In this session, we learn from the Bible that the dead are dead, “sleeping” in the ground and turned back to dust. They are not alive in Heaven, Hell, or Paradise, as is commonly taught. God never comforts anyone by telling them they will immediately go to heaven when they die. The Bible clearly states that Jesus is the only person who has died and ascended into Heaven after His death.  Verses: Deut. 31:16; 3:25-27; Ps. 6:5; 13:3; 16:10; 30:2, 8-9; 49:12, 14-15; 89:48; 115:17; Job 7:21; 14:10-13; 17:13-16; Eccles. 9:4-6, 10; Isa. 26:19; 38: 9-12,18-19; Matt. 16:18; Dan. 12:1-2, 13; Hosea 13:14; John 3:1, 13, 16; Acts 2:29-32.  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...

Session 2 - What Happens to the Body, the Soul, and the Spirit when a Person Dies?

Session 2 - What Happens to the Body, the Soul, and the Spirit when a Person Dies?

To accurately understand death, we must look to God’s Word and not human traditions. God designed the body, soul, and spirit to live together, not apart from each other. Soul is the life force of the body and all its cells. God gives us a portion of His spirit when we are born again. So, when a person dies, their soul ceases to exist and their spirit “returns” to God.  Verses: Gen. 1:20, 24, 30; 2:7; 9:10; Lev. 24:18; Acts 2:18; Eccles. 12:7  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...

Session 1 - Introduction

Session 1 - Introduction

Many people believe that when Christians die, they immediately go to heaven to be with Jesus, and they take great comfort in that. This seminar is not designed to cause people discomfort, but rather to provide great freedom in knowing what truly happens to people when they die. To find this freedom and to understand the true nature of death, we must look to Scripture, not to religious traditions or worldly cultures.  Verses: 1 Cor. 15:16-22; Gen. 2:15-17; 3:4; 7:21; Eccles. 9:4-6; Rom. 5:12; Luke 4:41; Deut. 18:9-12.  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...

Session 7 - How the Pharisees came to Believe that the Soul Lived on after Death

Session 7 - How the Pharisees came to Believe that the Soul Lived on after Death

Scripture verses taken out of context over the years have led to doctrinal errors which conclude that the soul lives on after death. As we read these various verses, it is important for us to consider both the immediate and the greater context. Doing so will help us accurately understand what is written concerning death and resurrection.  Verses: Luke 16:1, 19-31; 23:42-43; Joshua 23:14; 2 Cor. 5:1-10; Phil. 1:12-15, 18-24  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...
