Appearances of Jesus on the Earth After His Ascension?

There have been many people who assert that they have seen Jesus literally here on the surface of the earth outside of heaven after his ascension. Whenever you hear such a claim you can immediately rest assured that this is simply not the case since it clearly contradicts Scripture. Those who assert such an experience, insisting that it was not merely a dream or a vision of Jesus, are mistaken, delusional, deceived, or simply lying. When Jesus Ascended to Heaven When Jesus ascended into heaven 40 days after the resurrection, the angels specified that he had now left the...

The Cyrus Cylinder and God’s Message to Cyrus

The photo above of the Cyrus Cylinder is © The Trustees of the British Museum. Cyrus the Great was a famous Persian king and the founder of the Persian Empire under the Achaemenid dynasty that conquered Babylon and many other nations.

Deathbed Embodiment and the New Body

It is important to understand that through Christ, God will raise us all again from the dead. Unfortunately, some are teaching that we are immediately given a new body from God at the moment of death. They assert that our old body undergoes eventual decay, never to rise again. I have labeled this false teaching as “Deathbed Embodiment” since I have been unable to find an official title already in use. To further complicate this teaching, they often insist that we are all resurrected at the same time since they hold to the view that God dwells outside of...
