nga mihi me aroha
greetings & love
consider these words...
physical death is a consequence of sin & the universality of death proves the universality of sin
physical death affects the body only & is neither of cessation of life nor of consciousness
all physical death ends in the resurrection of the body
because physical death is a consequence of sin it is not inevitable to the redeemed
physical death has for the believer a peculiar qualification it is called a 'sleep' because his body may be awakened at any moment
the soul & spirit live independently of the death of the body which is described as a tabernacle in which the 'I' dwells & which may be put off
at the believers death he is clothed upon with the house from heaven pending the resurrection of the earthly house & is at once with the Lord...
SIN has been judged which is the physical death of all
what is to come however
is the judgement upon our WORKS whilst here
