Eternity is Forever

Many is the thoughts of man and one of them is praying for the dead.  I am not only creeped out by this but it’s wrong according to the Bible.  Once a man passes that is it.  His soul is forever separated from his body and his soul is either in the depths of Sheol or in heaven with Jesus.

Young’s Literal Translation
and as it is laid up to men once to die, and after this — judgment,

Our souls are gone once we breathe our last on this earth.  Prayers to the dead make no difference even though people do this all the time.  Be freed in knowing there is only one way.  If the dead had another opportunity to accept Christ Jesus, then the narrow way wouldn’t be narrow.  Plus, the Lord directs us here in Deuteronomy 18:10-12

“there shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son, or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you.”

Again, be freed and know the freedom in His word and take advantage of the time we have with our loved ones now.  Tell them about Jesus, give them the good news.  Once they are gone, we cannot pray for them to change their minds.  Their destination is permanent.  As someone who have had many of my loved ones loved ones pass on this week, eternity is forever.
