Under the crust of the Earth, oil is found deposited in oil wells. This oil is under considerable pressure. The pressure in oil wells is measured in pounds per square inch or psi.

The pressure of oil in oil wells is 20,000 pounds per square inch (psi). This explains why, when oil prospectors drill down into the Earth‘s crust for the oil, the oil is forcibly ejected from the oil well, because of the tremendous pressure.

pressure of oil in wells

Oil formed from organisms that once lived in the sea

– According to Holt General Science, 1988, p.294, “Oil and gas are made from “organisms that once lived in the sea. …changed by heat and pressure”… into oil”. .

– According to The Journal of Petroleum Geology Leigh Price 1983 p.32 oil can form in 1000-10,000 years!

– This subject is also discussed in “How Fast can Oil Form?” by Andrew Snelling 1990, Creation Ex Nihilo, 12(2):30.

Oil can be created artificially

– According to Creation Ex Nihilo, Vol 12 No. 2, p. 30, in “How fast can oil form?”, scientist can now convert vegetable matter, using heat and pressure, into oil in a couple of minutes inside a laboratory.

– According to Hadden R. Appell, US Dept. of Interior, Bureau of Mines, in “Converting Organic Wastes to Oil,” oil can be manufactured in 20 minutes.

– According to Mike Riddle in “Creation/Evolution: Does it Matter what we Believe?” By, ICR, p. 28, “In 1996 a $22.4 million proposal was approved in Western Australia that will build a plant to create oil from sewage sludge in 30 minutes”.

Geologists say the crust of the Earth could not have contained an oil pressure of 20,000 psi for more than 10,000 years

According to Creation Ex Nihilo Vol 12 No. 2, p.30 in “How fast can oil form?” geologists say that there is a limit to how long the rocks of the Earth’s crust could contain a pressure of 20,000 psi. According to these geologists the rocks could not have contained that kind of oil pressure for more than 10,000 years, without breaking up.

– If the Earth is billions of years old, why is oil present in oil wells, if it cannot be contained for more than 10,000 years?

– How did the oil get there?

– How was the oil created?

According to the Bible.

– God created the Heavens and the Earth 6,000 years ago approximately.

– 4,400 years ago there was a world wide Flood.

– As the crust of the Earth was broken up, and water ran off the land, the geography was dramatically altered.

At this point we have to do some reasoning, based on observations and known facts:

– About 4,400 years ago, according to the Bible, there was a Flood.

– In that Flood organic material in the form of fish, animals and people drowned.

– This organic material was greatly compressed by millions of tons of rocks, sand, gravel and mud, which compressed the dead carcasses, producing oil.

– Many Creationists believe that coal was similarly formed by the compression of vegetable matter at the time of Noah’s flood.

The existence of oil in oil wells proves a young universe

Since, according to geologists, oil cannot be contained within the crust of the Earth for more than 10,000 years, the existence of oil in oil wells indicates that the Universe cannot be billions of years old, but less than 10,000 years old.

The Law of Conversation of Angular Momentum causes very serious problems for the Big Bang Theory.

One way to understand the Law of Conversation of Angular Momentum is to illustrate this law of Physics with a practical example.

A roundabout in a children’s play area

Let us imagine that we have some children playing on a roundabout in a children’s play area.law of conservation of angular momentum
Phase 1: We ask three out of the children to sit on the roundabout and hold tight, and the remaining two children to spin the roundabout.

Phase 2: The roundabout is now travelling at 30 mph, and the children pushing the roundabout are beginning to perspire.

Phase 3: When the roundabout is spinning quite fast at 60 mph, the children on the roundabout are beginning to become frightened. They cry out, “Stop! Stop! Please slow down!”

Phase 4: When the roundabout begins to spin much faster at 100mph, such is the gravitational forces on the children sitting on the roundabout that they all fly off the roundabout.

Phase 5: Because of the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum the children will all fly off the roundabout moving in the same direction as the roundabout. If the roundabout was rotating clockwise, the children will also be rotating clockwise. 

 The Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum can now be applied to the Big Bang Theory

the big bang theory– In the case of the Big Bang Theory the “singularity” was supposed to have spun very fast, and then exploded in a frictionless environment, which the Universe must have been if all the matter was concentrated at one point.

– According to the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum, all the planets should spin in the same direction.

– We know from observation of the planets in our Solar System that the planets Venus, Uranus and possibly Pluto spin in the opposite direction to the other six planets.

– In addition to that, there are 63 known moons of the planets. Of these moons, six spin in the opposite direction to the remaining 57.

– In our Solar System, three of the planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, have moons orbiting in both directions.

– The above facts are quoted from “Astronomical Almanac for the year 1989″ (Wash. DC U.S. Government Printing Office, 1989) p. E88.

– From the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum we can see that if our Solar System evolved spontaneously by a Big Bang, all the moons should orbit their planets in the same direction.

– The only exception to this would be if they encountered a large mass, such as another planet.

– However, this event should certainly have left a crater, which it would have been observed by astronomers.

– Observations of our Solar System do NOT support the big Bang Theory.

Difference of angular momentum of the Sun and the planets 

The Sun actually spins very much more slowly than the planets. This certainly does not support the Big Bang Theory, as explained in the following quotation:

“This (Angular Momentum) would have caused the Sun to spin very rapidly. Actually, our Sun spins very slowly, while the planets move very rapidly around the Sun. In fact, although the Sun has over 99% of the mass of the solar system, it has only 2% of the angular momentum. This pattern is directly opposite to the pattern predicted for the nebular hypothesis.” Quoted from Dr. H. Reeves “The Origin of the Solar System“, in “The Origin of the Solar System”, Dermott, S.F. Ed. John Wiley & Sons, New York p. 9, 1978.

Evolutionist cannot explain the angular momentum of the Solar System

“The ultimate origin of the solar system’s angular momentum remains obscure.” Quoted from solar system Evolutionist scientist, Dr. Stuart Ross Taylor, “Solar System Evolution, A New Perspective,” Cambridge University Press, p. 53, 1992, Dr. Stuart Ross Taylor.

The Milky Way is “lumpy” 
If the Big Bang Theory were true, the planets would all spin in the same direction, and the matter would be evenly distributed through the Solar System. Instead it is “lumpy”. Throughout the Milky Way there are clusters of stars, then great areas of empty space. This subject is discussed in detail in “Creation Ex Nihilo Dec. 99, p. 8″.

big bang theoryMost text books teach that, in its early life, the Earth was a hot molten mass formed as a result of the Big Bang billions of years ago.

According to this theory, the Earth slowly cooled down over millions of years, leaving a hot molten central core, with the cooled Earth’s crust.

Holt Earth Science 1994, p. 280
surface of the moonAccording to Holt Earth Science, “As Earth formed, its surface was similar to the surface of the moon today. Craters, like those in the picture, and large plains of volcanic basalt may have marked its surface. But unlike its moon, Earth’s surface was hot, and there were large pools of bubbling lava”.

The Bible and the Creation of the Earth

water canopy around the earthThe Bible does not describe the Earth as ever being a hot molten mass!

To the contrary, the Bible states in Genesis1:1, 2,

In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. The Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”.

According to the Bible, the Earth was formed under water, by God, and not as a result of the Big Bang Theory.

We therefore have two completely different accounts of the formation of Planet Earth. We suspect that the Bible is the correct version of events. This has in fact been proved by the existence of Polonium Halos found in granite all over the world.

POLONIUM HALOS

Robert Gentry, whose excellent research may be read at www.halos.com has written a remarkable book, “Creation’s Tiny Mystery”. In the book Robert Gentry describes the results of his studies of samples of granite from all over the world.

He discovered that granite contains Polonium Halos. Polonium is one of the many elements that make up the Periodic Table, and the Halos are the result of radioactive decay of this element over a very short period of time. creations tiny mystery polonium halos by roberty v gentry

Polonium has a very short half life

Polonium is a radioactive isotope that decays very rapidly. This is described technically as having a very short half life.

– The isotope Po-218 has a half life of 3 minutes.

– The isotope Po-214 has a half life of only 0.164 seconds.

Polonium Halos 

As Polonium atoms emit radioactive particles, the atoms are surrounded by Halos of radioactive particles.

Example 1

A Polonium Halo may be likened to a firework exploding in the night sky. If the sky is captured in a photograph, such as this one, then the image of the “Firework Halo” can be preserved for posterity.

Example 2

Another example would be an effervescent tablet dissolving in a glass of water. As the effervescent tablet dissolves in the water, the effervescence in the water rapidly disappears. However, if the water was frozen at a very early stage, the effervescence would be visible in the ice. effervescence

Effervescence observed in ice would be an indication of almost instantaneous freezing of the water.

POLONIUM HALOS MAY BE OBSERVED IN SAMPLES OF SOLID ROCK FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Polonium Halos could have formed only if the rapidly decaying Polonium atoms, and the Halos of radioactive particles around the atoms, had been instantly encased in solid rock, with the emission of radioactive particles preserved as Polonium Halos.

polonium halos

Polonium Halos

These observable Polonium Halos provide undeniable evidence that the first created Polonium atoms were instantly preserved in solid granite, since the half life of Polonium is 3 minutes at most.

POLONIUM HALOS PROVE CREATION

Polonium Halos are found in granite samples all over the world, and may be viewed using a microscope. The occurrence of these Polonium Halos in granite samples from all over the world indicates that the Earth was formed in an extremely short time, in complete harmony with the Biblical record of Creation in Genesis Chapter 1.

THE BIG BANG THEORY REFUTED

If the Earth was originally a hot molten mass which took millions of years to cool down, the radioactive particles emitted by the rapidly decaying Polonium, and accompanying Polonium Halos, would disappear in the molten lava, in the same way as an effervescent tablet in a glass of water.

Polonium Halos in Granite samples

The existence of Polonium Halos in granite samples from all over the world therefore completely disproves the Big Bang Theory.

Creation, The Genesis Account

Pray this prayer, or something very similar, in your heart 

The simplest and easiest way it to pray with this short video:
[blip.tv ?posts_id=3381707&dest=-1]

Explanation

There is only one way to make certain that Heaven is our destination when we die. We have to become a genuine born-again Christian, just like Jesus said in John 3:3 and John 3:7, and follow the ways and teachings of Jesus Christ.

Jesus said we must be “born again” before we can see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus was a Jewish priest who went to see Jesus at night. This is described in the Gospel of John.

“Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no-one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.” In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no-one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” “How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!” Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no-one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again,'” John 3:1-7.

Jesus said that none of us would see the Kingdom of God unless we are “born again” by the Holy Spirit. This is a spiritual birth, when the Holy Spirit comes to live in us after we have received Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. When we do this God adopts us into His family.

If we reject God’s plan of Salvation we will not end up in Heaven

If we reject the forgiveness that God offers us then we are turning away from Him, and we remain ‘sinners’. The Bible tells us very clearly in John 3:36 that eternal separation from God will be the result of this action:

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him”, John 3:36.

Romans 3:23 says that we are all sinners in God’s sight because we have broken His commandments. God is holy and pure and sin cannot exist in His presence. The only way to God is to say we are sorry for the wrong things in our life and accept the forgiveness offered to us, through the Blood of Jesus Christ. This is explained in the next chapters.

Many people in this book have met an angel in Heaven. According to Psalm 91, we all have a personal angel, if we are “born again” into God’s Kingdom.

How can I be “born again” so that I go to Heaven when I die?

To be born again, we all must pray a simple prayer, similar to this video:

[blip.tv ?posts_id=3381707&dest=-1]

In this prayer there are various simple things you must do, without leaving anything out.

  • Ask God’s forgiveness for all of the sins that you have ever committed. 
  • Turn away from and stop any known sin. This is known as Repentance. 
  • Forgive anyone who has ever sinned against you, or any member of your family. 
  • Ask God’s forgiveness because the Blood of Jesus Christ cleans you personally from sin. 
  • Ask God to send the Holy Spirit to come to live in you. 
  • Acknowledge to God that Jesus Christ is your Personal Saviour. 

Is there anything else I need to know before praying this prayer? 

Yes – you should be aware of some Biblical concepts before this prayer is prayed. These are explained below

Repentance 

The Bible says we are all sinful. The Bible states:

“All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God’, Romans 3:23.

We must stop anything sinful, and ask forgiveness from God Who is Holy, and will not allow sin in His presence. There are TWO parts to repentance! One part is to ask forgiveness for the sin, the other is to stop doing it. Half the job doesn’t count! It is essential to repent properly, which means spending some time thinking about your life.

What in practical simple terms does this mean?

In simple terms this means that we should obey the Ten Commandments. Here is a shortened version of the Ten Commandments:

Exodus 20:3 -17 (shortened, from The Living Bible)

1. You may worship no other god than Me. 

2. You shall not make yourselves any idols, and you must never bow or worship idols in any way. 

3. You shall not use the name of Jehovah your God irreverently. 

4. Remember to observe the Sabbath as a holy day. 

5. Honour your father and mother. 

6. You must not murder. 

7. You must not commit adultery. 

8. You must not steal. 

9. You must not lie. 

10. You must not be envious of your neighbour’s house, or anything else he has. 

The first commandment is that we must only worship the God of the Bible. We must all remove any false idols in our lives, such our money, our careers, our homes, our appearance, alcohol, drugs, any addictions, or anything else that is more important to us than God Himself. We must stop completely any form of sin such as swearing, murder, any form of sexual immorality, theft, lying, and lust. We all have a conscience, which is God’s voice within us (see below). God uses our conscience to show each one of us what He does not approve of.

Who is Jesus Christ?

The Bible is perfectly clear the Jesus Christ is God. According to John Chapter 1, Jesus was present right at the beginning of Creation, and He made everything. Life is in Him. To those who receive Him, Jesus gives the right to become a child of God. This is explained in the opening verses of the Gospel of John.

‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to his own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believed in His name.’(John 1:1-4, 10-12.)

Believe that Jesus is the Christ

The Bible is perfectly clear that Jesus Christ, and He alone, is the Messiah. We must acknowledge this to God the Father in prayer. Jesus clarified that He is the Messiah in the following text:

‘The high priest asked him, saying unto Him, ‘Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?’ Jesus said, ‘I am.’ (Mark 14:61-62.)

True faith in Jesus Christ will give us eternal life in Him in Heaven, as stated in the following famous verse:

‘God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’ (John 3:16.)

The Greek word used here implies having faith in Jesus Christ. It is more than an intellectual acknowledgement that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Many people vaguely believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. However, true faith in Jesus Christ is much more than this. It is a true faith in Jesus Christ, which can only come after a true conversion experience, and receiving the Holy Spirit.

Our Conscience Is God The Holy Spirit Convicting Each One Of Us Of Our Sins

After Jesus was baptised by his cousin, John the Baptist,

“The Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from Heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased,” Luke 3:22

A dove in the natural world is a very gentle bird, and will fly away if disturbed. All humans have a conscience, which pure science can never explain. Our conscience is God the Holy Spirit, speaking quietly to each of us throughout our lives. If we persist in sin, the Holy Spirit, like a dove, will depart. This is how some people seem to become so insensitive to sin in their lives.

In John 8:7-9 a woman was caught in adultery, The Jews were about to execute the woman, and Jesus said,

“He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first. And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one.” 

Note that the onlookers were “convicted by their conscience.”

Later Jesus said, at the Last Supper, that the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, would convict everyone of sin: 

“And when He (the Holy Spirit) has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement,” John 16:8.

The voice of the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin

The voice of the Holy Spirit is gentle, like a dove. His voice is identical to your conscience, since God speaks to us using our conscience. When you pray, you might like to approach God like a little child, and ask Him to show you the sin in your life. He will.

You will hear the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit revealing sin in your life, and those things in your life He wants you to stop doing. He may reveal things from many years ago, or things about your present lifestyle He wants you to change.

He will also reveal to you those people who you need to forgive. You must forgive anyone who has sinned against you, or your family, in any way. Jesus said, in Matthew 6:15,

‘If you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.’

 According to Jesus, you must therefore forgive everyone, or God will not forgive you.

WHAT TO DO AFTER YOU ARE BORN AGAIN

1. JOIN A CHURCH OF BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIANS

There are many Bible believing Christians all over the world. Not all churches believe that the Bible is the supernatural word of God, and do not interpret the Bible literally! Jesus did! Great care needs to be taken in choosing the right church!

This is very important, since you will rapidly find that, as a born again Christian, you are in a minority group! The Bible does encourage believers to meet together regularly (see Hebrews 10:25).

Please ask the Holy Spirit to help you, because your choice of church is extremely important. Also ask the advice of local believers.

Here are some things to look for in finding the right church for you.

A church that places the authority of the Bible above everything else

This is NOT an easy thing to discern! You do need help on this! A good test would be to try to discover where the proposed church stands doctrinally on:

– The Supernatural Inspiration of the Bible.
– The Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
– The existence of Satan.
– The Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
– The existence of Heaven and Hell.
– The Creation by God of the entire Universe.
– Jesus Christ’s requirement for us to be born again.
– Believer’s Baptism in water.
– The Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
– The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
– Regular plans for evangelism.
– A desire to support the poor and needy in the world.
– The place of Israel in God’s purposes.
– Sex outside marriage.
– Abortions.

The Bible is perfectly clear on all of these issues, but there are large number of churches that interpret the Bible in a different way. For example, the Bible is very clear about sex outside marriage, but many churches avoid discussing this, for fear of upsetting people.

Other excellent qualities, consistent with New Testament teachings, are:

– A welcoming church.
– A church that provides good Bible based teaching.
– A church that has a number of leaders, rather than one.
– A church that has absolute integrity in all financial matters, including the publication of annual accounts. You may be giving money to the church, so it will be helpful for you to know where this money is going to.

Here are some things that are much less important.

– The church building: The churches in the book of Acts met in homes! The church is the people, not the building. There is nothing wrong in nice buildings, but these are unimportant to God.
– Special clothing for leaders of the church. Of course it is respectful to God to be appropriately dressed, but special clothing is unimportant.

Here are some things to avoid at all costs:

– A church that does not believe in the absolute authority of the Bible.
– A church that teaches from anything other than the Bible, or Bible inspired texts.
– A church where leaders exert undue control of the lives of individuals within the church.
– Any lack of financial integrity within the church.
2. READ THE BIBLE EVERY DAY

This is one way God speaks to us. The Bible is not a simple book, and it will take you a lifetime to fully understand all the teachings within the Scriptures. However, regular Bible reading, or listening to the Bible, is essential. God will often highlight verses within the Bible to speak into your circumstances directly.

3. LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY TO YOUR CONSCIENCE

Your conscience is God guiding you every day, and is an extremely important part of your “guidance system”. Your conscience is not a loud voice, but is usually a very gentle voice. This is why it is so important to spend time quietly every day. If you have doubts about a certain action, do not ignore your conscience. Our Heavenly Father is a loving Father, who is warning you not to go down a particular planned course of action.

4. PRAY REGULARLY, ASKING GOD’S GUIDANCE FOR ALL MATTERS IN YOUR LIFE

The Bible states, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil” Proverbs 3:6-7.

5. TRY NOT TO SIN IN ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE

We live in such a sinful society that many things that the world considers completely normal, are actually very sinful. It will probably take some time before you have sorted your life out!

6. HAVE REGULAR BIBLE TEACHING

Regular Bible teaching is extremely important. Under Resources towards the end of this book we have given Bible teachers who have inspired us. Fortunately, there are many excellent Bible teachers, and you will probably quickly find your own favourites.

7. SEEK TO SPEAK TO OTHERS ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF BECOMING A CHRISTIAN. 

You may have seen the film Schindler’s List, the harrowing true story of how Oskar Schindler, a German businessman, who saved over a thousand Jews from almost certain death in concentration camps in World War 2.

It is important to realise that Salvation is a very precious gift, bought by Jesus Christ at enormous cost. Only those who are born again will go to Heaven (see John 3:3 and John 3:7).

Everyone else will not go to Heaven, according to Jesus Christ.
Born again Christians are charged by Jesus Christ to ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,’ (Matthew 28:19.)

1. A Christian is not a “good person”, but a reformed bad person

true christianityA Christian is not someone who tries to be good, attends church, reads the Bible, prays, or does good to others, although all of these are commendable.

These things start to happen after someone has become a Christian, by being born again. Christians naturally want to be together, and spend time with each other, because other Christians are their new family in Jesus Christ.

2. We are saved by grace

This means that nobody can be good enough to “earn” a place in Heaven‘For by grace you have been saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast,’ Ephesians 2:8-9.

3. A Christian is someone who has the Holy Spirit living in them

saved by graceWhen we are born again, we receive the Holy Spirit. At the Last Supper, Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you”. John 14:16-17. Jesus was referring to the Holy Spirit, who he would send to live in all believers.

After the Resurrection, Jesus appeared in the Upper Room, as recorded in John 20:19-22, “Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” Now when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit”. 

Since then, all believers receive the Holy Spirit when they are born again. Paul confirms this in 1 Corinthians 6:19, ‘Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit Who is in you, whom you have from God,’

4. A Christian is someone who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

teachings of jesus christJesus said, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him,” John 14:21. The first thing that Jesus commands from all of His potential disciples is, ‘You must be born again”, John 3:7.

5. Why must I be born again? 

Because Jesus Christ, the Son of God, said so, in John 3:3. ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’ To be born again is to receive the Holy Spirit, God Himself, Who comes to live in us as we pray something very similar to the “Sinner’s prayer” in the next chapter.

6. When we are born again we are new people

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”, 2 Corinthians 5:17. The Bible says that when we are born again by the Holy Spirit, we become brand new people inside! We look the same on the outside, but the Holy Spirit comes to live in us. He makes us brand new on the inside, with new motivations, new desires, a new way of living, and a new perspective on life.

7. The Person of the Holy Spirit 

the holy spiritThe Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity. He is Holy, and He will not come and live in any of us until we are forgiven by God. The Holy Spirit is the creative power of the Trinity.

 

 

8. If I am not born again, whose kingdom am I in?

We are all born into the kingdom of Satan, according to the Bible. Jesus said to priests, in John 8:44, ‘You are of your father, the devil.’ 

9. What happens to those who are not born again?

Jesus Himself is perfectly clear on this subject. He said, “Unless a man is born again, he will not enter the kingdom of Heaven,” John 3:3. The truth, according to Jesus Christ, is that most people do not go to Heaven. Jesus said, in Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

10. Our ultimate destiny, Heaven or Hell, are decided in this life. 

Jesus Christ and the repentant thief are now in Paradise, and will be there for ever. The unrepentant thief is in Hell, and will be there forever too.

The main purpose of wwwheaven or hell.freechristianteaching.org is that you may end up in Heaven, and not Hell.

Only you can make this choice!

It is important to understand that we are all spirits living in bodies, and that when we die our spirits leave our bodies to live in Eternity, either in Heaven, or in Hell.

In order to fully understand the concept of the human body with an indwelling human spirit we do need to go back to the original Creation of human beings, as described in the Bible. This is covered in greater detail in our teaching about Creation -The Genesis Account.

THE CREATION OF THE SPIRITS OF ADAM AND EVE

Adam and EveAdam and Eve were originally created as spirits, created in the likeness of God. Very soon after that the Lord God created bodies for them, “and man became a living being.”

We start in Genesis 1:26-27, “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness’. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Approximately 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ became a Human Being. In Genesis1:26 and 1:27 God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were all Spirits, and they created Adam and Eve in Their exact likeness. But before that Jesus Christ was a Spirit, as confirmed in the following Scriptures:

Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning God (Hebrew, “Elohiym” pleural, literally “Gods”) created the Heavens and the Earth.”

John 1:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word (Jesus Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.”

Colossians 1:15-17, “Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God. He existed before God made anything at all, and, in fact, Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in Heaven and Earth, the things we can see and the things we can’t; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory. He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together,” TLB.

Thus the Bible states that God (pleural) originally made Adam and Eve as spirits in Genesis 1:27. 

But before that Jesus Christ was a Spirit. Therefore they must have made Adam and Eve as spirits in Genesis 1:27. 

We are told that God is a Spirit in John 4:25, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” Therefore, when They (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) created something in their exact likeness, they must have created:

spirit of adam and eve

Spirit of Adam

spirit of adam and eve

Spirit of Eve

The spirits of Adam and Eve were created in Their exact likeness. 

The Creation of the Bodies of Adam and Eve

Adam and Eve were originally spirits, created in the likeness of God. Very soon after that God created bodies for them, “and man became a living being.”

In Genesis 2:7, the LORD God (Jesus Christ) formed the first living being, called Man, as recorded in Genesis 2:7: “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” According to the Bible, our human bodies were originally created out of dust.

It is interesting to note that the chemical components of the human body are exactly the same chemical elements as the dust of the ground. Our physical bodies are made up of 17 chemical elements. In fact these are the same 17 elements that are found in the dust of the ground. It is a matter of common observation that, after a body has been cremated, only dust remains.

It appears, from reading these first two chapters of the Bible, that the Creation of the Human Body was a two-part process. First of all the spirits of Adam and Eve were created in the image of God, and then these spirits were breathed by God into a human body, formed from the dust of the ground.

It follows therefore, that we too, are composed of flesh, constructed out of the same chemical elements as the dust of the Earth, but containing an eternal spirit.

When we die our spirits leave our bodies

spirit leaving body at deathWe are told in the New Testament that human life in the body cannot exist without the indwelling spirit. James 2:26 states, “The body without the spirit is dead”.

When Jesus Christ created the first human body in Genesis 2:7, that body was dead until Jesus Christ breathed into that dead body the “breath of life”.

This “breath of life” would by definition have been the spirit of Adam created in Genesis 1:27.

OUR BODIES DIE, BUT OUR SPIRITS LIVE FOREVER

Example 1: Ecclesiastes 12:6-7
The Bible states, “Remember your Creator now while you are young – before the silver cord of life snaps and the gold bowl is broken; before the pitcher is broken at the fountain and the wheel is broken at the cistern. Then the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it”, Ecclesiastes 12:6-7, TLB. Thus at death the human body decomposes, but the spirit, which never dies, returns to God. This means that the “real you” is a spirit that will live forever.

Example 2: When Jesus died on the Cross, He gave up His Spirit
“So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit,” John 19:30.

Example 3: The raising of Jairus’ daughter by Jesus 
A 12 year old little girl died, and Jesus raised her back to life. This is described in Luke 8:51-56, “When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, “Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping. And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead. But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Little girl, arise.” Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given something to eat. And her parents were astonished, but He charged them to tell no one what had happened”. 

After death there is a judgement

We are also told in Hebrews 9:27, “It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement”. When the physical body dies, our spirit will live on, and go either to Heaven or to Hell. Both of these places have been described quite graphically on www.freechristianteaching.org , and no doubt you have already decided that Hell is not where you want to finish up!

By Dr Richard Kent, www.freechristianteaching.org

Nowadays many churches do not preach about Hell, for whatever reason. This is not a Biblical position for churches to take. Jesus Christ actually spoke more about Hell than he did about Heaven, and warned everyone that Hell was a place to be avoided.

You might ask what evidence there is to support the ideas of Heaven and Hell contained in this book.

There are many verses in the Bible which tell us about both places. Jesus said in John 14:2:

“In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

In the book of Revelation there are many verses that describe how wonderful it is in Heaven, especially in chapters 21 and 22. These chapters describe the New Jerusalem, the capital city of Heaven, where there is no crying, no sadness, and no pain. Here the streets are pure gold, as clear as glass, and the walls are made of beautiful gems. Here are some selected verses from the last two chapters of the Bible.

Heaven, as described in Revelation 21 and 22

heaven“Now I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth, for the first Heaven and the first Earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from Heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

……. And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the Earth bring their glory and honour into it. Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there)

…..And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations”.

Hell, as described in the Bible 

By contrast Hell is described as a place of eternal torment and pain where the body suffers.

Jesus said, ‘The kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered, some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth,’ Matthew 13: 47-50.

The Rich Man I torment in Hades

the rich man in hell‘There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angel’s to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom,’ Luke 16:19-23.

The Bible indicates the location of Hell 

Jesus said, in Matthew 12:40“For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth”. The Greek word used here for “Earth” is the Greek word, “Gees”. The Greek word “Gees” is exactly the same word that Jesus used to describe Heaven and Earth in Mathew 5:18.

Jesus is referring in Matthew 12:40 to Sheol, the place for departed spirits, which at the time of the Crucifixion was in the heart of Planet Earth. Since then Paradise has moved to the Third Heaven, but Hades (Greek, Haides) remains in the heart of Planet Earth.

It is recorded in 1 Samuel 28:7-15 that the spirit of Samuel came up from Sheol:

“Then Saul said to his servants, “Find me a woman who is a medium, that I may go to her and inquire of her.” And his servants said to him, “In fact, there is a woman who is a medium at En Dor.” So Saul disguised himself and put on other clothes, and he went, and two men with him; and they came to the woman by night. And he said, “Please conduct a séance for me, and bring up for me the one I shall name to you.” Then the woman said to him, “Look, you know what Saul has done, how he has cut off the mediums and the spiritists from the land. Why then do you lay a snare for my life, to cause me to die?” And Saul swore to her by the LORD, saying, “As the LORD lives, no punishment shall come upon you for this thing.” Then the woman said, “Whom shall I bring up for you?” And he said, “Bring up Samuel for me.” When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out with a loud voice. And the woman spoke to Saul, saying, “Why have you deceived me? For you are Saul!” And the king said to her, “Do not be afraid. What did you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I saw a spirit ascending out of the earth.” So he said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is covered with a mantle.” And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground and bowed down. Now Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?”

In Philippians 2:10-11 we read , “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on Earth, and of those under the Earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.

Fallen angels in Hell

Our eternal destiny is decided here on Earth

This story shows most clearly that once we have died, the decision taken on this Earth regarding our eternal destination, Heaven or Hell, is final. In the story of Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16, the point is that the rich man closed his eyes and died, and immediately opened his eyes in Hell.

Jesus Christ is the only One who claimed to be God, has died and been resurrected. He is the only One qualified to comment. Jesus said that every person who dies without salvation, awakes and opens his or her eyes in Hell.

You may never have the opportunity, as the people in this book have, to glimpse what lies beyond the final frontier of death. But you have read about their experiences. We cannot prove or disprove what they have seen. We can say however, that what they have seen is confirmed by the teachings of Jesus whilst He was on Earth, and what God revealed to other writers in the Bible.
