No One Hath Ascended but

No One Hath Ascended but

The message on October 14, 2018 was a one off message entitled "No One Has Ascended but..." and studied what happens at death.  Wayne looked at the state of the soul and body at death and how it is described in scripture regarding what happens.  There is a lot of tradition that has creeped into modern Christian thinking that comes from pagan belief.  The scriptures clearly state in John 3:13 that "...no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven."  This message goes through scripture to paint the truth as to how death is defeated only in the resurrection.  When we die, Satan has won a little skirmish over us but we will have the ultimate victory in the resurrection of immortality and eternity with Christ.  The scripture reading was from 2 Corinthians 5:1-9 KJV

"1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him."
