The Soul Exists – Even After DeathApril 18, 2023
The Soul Exists Even After Death
In this world, many people live aimless lives not knowing that there is another world after this one on Earth. They think when they die it is the end. However, through the teachings in the Bible, we can understand that the soul exists and lives a separate life in the afterworld.
The Soul Exists
Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, great and small alike, standing before the throne. Books were opened, and then another book was opened, the book of the living. The dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books.
The Bible says that the dead were judged according to what they had done. Then, what part of them was judged according to their deeds? Since they are dead, we cannot say it is their body. Through this, we can understand that the soul exists. It is our souls that will live in the Kingdom of Heaven, the angelic world. Since the soul exists even after the death of the body, it means the soul existed already before this world.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 Our bodies will return to the dust of the earth, and the breath of life will go back to God, who gave it to us.
It is written the breath of life, the soul, will return to God who gave it. This means your soul lived with God before coming to the earth. God lives in Heaven, so your soul lived in Heaven before. The soul exists most definitely.
Mankind was Born into this World Because of Sin
What are we doing on this earth? Why did we leave Heaven?
Ezekiel 28:15-16 Your conduct was perfect from the day you were created until you began to do evil.
You were busy buying and selling, and this led you to violence and sin. So I forced you to leave my holy mountain, and the angel who guarded you drove you away from the sparkling gems.
This is about the king of Tyre. He sinned in Heaven and was expelled to this earth. Actually, this is the case for all mankind living on this earth. You are on this earth because your soul committed grievous sins in heaven. Can we still deny that the soul exists? How can we continue living aimless lives, knowing the soul exists?
Since God made known to us through the Holy Scriptures that we are on this earth because of our sins, we must quickly find the way to receive the forgiveness of sins and return to our home country, the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Way to Return to Our Home Country
Ephesians 1:7 For by the blood of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven. How great is the grace of God.
Through the blood of Christ, we are set free from sins and we have the right to return to Heaven.
Matthew 26: 26-28 While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. “Take and eat it,” he said; “this is my body.” Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and gave it to them. “Drink it, all of you,” he said; “this is my blood, which seals God’s covenant, my blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Through the Passover of the New Covenant, we come to have the blood of Christ that purges away our sins. Let us keep the Passover correctly according to the Bible, for our sins to be forgiven and go back to Heaven our home. We should not live as if the fact the soul exists is a small matter.
