Is there life after death?

By B. Walker

Is there life after death? This is the question that has stumped the ages and sparked many a debate for those in the religious and secular community. Is there any proof that life continues after death once the body is gone.

We not only have the eye witness accounts of Jesus resurrection three days after his death, we have Jesus own statement to the thief on the cross as found in Luke 23:39-43 Jesus said to the thief when the thief said Lord remember me when you come into you’re kingdom” the Lord replied; Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in paradise,” many will tell you that the Bible does not teach that we go to heaven when we die and call this teaching of life after death absurd  and they believe that we just sleep until the time of the end, the fact of the matter is the physical body ends but the soul continues on!

To them I say this; If there is no life after death why did the apostle Paul himself say to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord?  2nd Corinth. 5:8 as well as the words of the Lord to the thief confirm this. I have heard many arguments that claim chapter and verse to the contrary including

I Thessalonians 4:15-17

"For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those which are asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ will rise first: (those who have died will come back to reanimate a physical body, and I will cover this!) Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.

Many will tell you that this is not found in the bible and is heresy I will cover this as we go. Keep in mind that Jesus when he was transfigured on the mountain let Peter, James and John his brother see him, and Moses and Elijah when he was transfigured on the mountain. Moses was dead and long buried, and we know that according to the bible and the book of Jude 1:9 the devil contended for the body of Moses with the archangel Michael. Your soul does not sleep! The body withers and dies but not the soul. The soul is timeless and does not age; the body was set under the curse in Eden and is the very vehicle we war against in this life. The soul is willing but the body goes into entropy but from the beginning this was not so!

When man fell from the Garden of Eden we went into a form of Devolution and so the laws of conservation of energy and the second law of thermodynamics took effect. And what does that scientific law state? The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, which states that all systems degenerate from order to disorder, was regarded by Albert Einstein to be the premier Law in science. Again the Bible is the only religious book to accurately describe this Law,” (NKJ, Isa 51:6)", this law proves we in the natural world age and go into a state of deterioration and age and die but not so with the soul.

The soul on the other hand is evolving spiritually and is always in a state of growing if we encourage it under the guidelines of God for the spirit is timeless and only God can destroy this energy. I will not go into how the evolution of species happened here as I will cover this elsewhere, but from the beginning this process did not exist. Also note that even our Lord’s Prayer mirrors this thought.

“Our Father who are in heaven Holy is your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. What was Gods will in Eden? That man should live a life with his God forever learning and growing in trust and understanding with eternal life. From one came many in heaven. On earth man evolves to try to mirror heaven; from many came one”. Think of this as the sign of the great pyramid and this is where we get the Star of David two pyramids intersecting each other, or when two worlds collide the true world and will of God versus the dark half or anti-type of the Kingdom. On one hand you have the heavenly and the other the earthly they are racing to intersect to recreate the perfection God had intended from the beginning, for the earthly is darkness, and the heavenly is light

As darkness is the absence of light so evil it the absence from God, as Adam when he sinned heard the voice of God walking in the Garden of Eden in the cool of the day God called to Adam and asked where are you Adam, did God not know where Adam was or did he question, where he was spiritually? The same with Cain, God said; if you do well won’t you be accepted? But sin lies at your door and its desire is for you but you should rule over it. Cain being angry later murdered his brother Abel because of jealousy and the darkness in his heart.

This is as far as I will take this for now but understand this is not a new teaching for even Jesus himself gave this teaching when he told of Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16:19-31

Also note;  II Corinthians 4:18-5:4

"While we look not at the things which are seen (The physical), but at the things which are not seen(The spiritual): for the things which are seen are temporal(Temporary and dyeing); but the things which are not seen are eternal (this is your soul). For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved (Speaking of the body), we have a building of God(Our spiritual body), an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (Here you have the declaration of a spiritual body in heaven). For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven (Why we don’t fear death the promise of eternal life): If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle (Our earthly body)do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon(Given our heavenly body), that mortality might be swallowed up of life."(And this life is eternal and spiritual)

I Corinthians 15:44-54

"There is a natural body (The physical), and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being(Physical)." The last Adam (Jesus and the new birth in him) became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first (That is in this world), but the natural (physical body),and afterward the spiritual (Body). The first man is of the earth, earthy (he is a physical being): the second man is the Lord from heaven (and our promise of the same). As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, natural, body, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (the heavenly, spiritual body). Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption (The physical) inherit incorruption(The physical). Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep(Die), but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be RAISED incorruptible (The physical body raised and made spiritual, so that body and spirit are united we take on the form of antimatter so to speak), and we shall be changed. For this corruptible (physical) must put on incorruption(The spiritual), and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality(This is the untiting of the Body and soul when it puts on immortality), then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY."

I know many in the Christian community will disagree with these facts but again I make no apology for the word and its teaching, if you believe differently so be it but this again is not a new teaching, many in ancient times understood this very meaning and it is confirmed in many cultures around the world. I also want to state here that even science confirms life after death! You will never here this from those in the scientific community but this fact is science and proves that there is life after death.

Scientific proof that there is an afterlife but many over look this one scientific fact! Energy and mass can neither be created or destroyed it only changes shape, this is the first law in thermodynamics. The first law of thermodynamics, an expression of the principle of conservation of energy, states that energy can be transformed (changed from one form to another), but cannot be created or destroyed. It is usually formulated by saying that the change in the internal energy of a system (Your body and self is that system) is equal to the amount of heat supplied to the system, minus the amount of work done by the system on its surroundings. We know that the body is made up of electrical impulses and this energy can be measured this being said read my statement below.

What is the First Law of Thermodynamics?

In its simplest form, the First Law of Thermodynamics states that neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed. The amount of energy in the universe is constant – energy can be changed, moved, controlled, stored, or dissipated. However, this energy cannot be created from nothing or reduced to nothing (Your soul God created it to be eternal). Every natural process transforms energy and moves energy, but cannot create or eliminate it.This principle forms a foundation for many of the physical sciences and this law is never transgressed and proven to be the essential principal and immovable to much of science..

The First Law of Thermodynamics is one of the absolute physical laws of the universe. Everything in the entire universe is affected by this law, as much as time or gravity. There are three Laws of Thermodynamics. The Second Law (Increased Entropy) and the Third Law (Zero Entropy at Zero Kelvin) are dependent on the First Law and each other. Together, these laws form part of the baseline for all modern science. No exceptions or contradictions to these laws have ever been observed.

Energy that enters a system must either be stored there or leave ( Stored in the body or leaves at death). A system cannot output more energy than it contains without an external source of more energy (Miracles come from God the external power source). This energy can be in work, heat, potential, or kinetic form. On a small scale, this can be explained this way: “Change in internal energy equals the difference of heat transfer into the system and the work done by the system.” On a large scale, this Law is still observable. Oceans and planets and solar systems all operate under the control of the First Law of Thermodynamics.

Some aspects of the First Law of Thermodynamics can seem confusing. A burning log in the fireplace seems to violate the principles of conservation of matter/energy. Burning the log appears to create energy and destroy matter. In reality, the energy and matter are only changing place and form (as in when you die what happens to the energy that is you?), they are not being created or destroyed. The wood in the log has chemical potential energy, which is released when it is burned. This released energy appears in the form of heat and light (Christ said I am the light of the world. All this were made by him and through him, and without him nothing was made). The matter of the log is changed into smoke particles, ash, and soot. The log’s total energy and mass before burning are the same as the mass and energy of the soot, ash, smoke, heat and light afterwards. (Keep in mind that light energy is the binding force that keeps matter together to form all solids. Once the light energy is removed this starts to corrode or we return to dust.)

Many will say;

This is all known and proven science it doesn't show that your "soul" "personality" "consciousness" or whatever name you wish to give to it will live on after the matter conversion from living tissue to the dust we will all eventually become.

Think of us as a computer, our bodies are hardware and our consciousness is software, once that computer has ceased to be a computer and it's component parts have been degraded/recycled the software that hasn't been saved will cease to exist unless it has been backed up somewhere, so unless "God" is backing up our software" upon death it ceases to exist and the laws of the universe says that nothing exists outside of it's laws even God.

This argument sounds logical and plausible at first until we ask other questions and add to this equation with science, and that is the fact that we have self awareness that your computer does not as it is just an inanimate object and can only do what we as men have programmed and dreamed it to do it has no free will and choice, it has no feelings or emotions and cannot dream or create. The energy that it draws, is from outside sources and it is not a being or self-aware. Take this further into science and what the Conscious mind is. Is the universe just a hologram of what reality really is as science is starting to claim and that this is on the verge of evolving to the next step? If this is true and many in the secular world of modern science is stating this, then once again the Bible is correct and when the apostle Paul told us that this life is just a mirror image of what is to come and fading, we see in part and know in part but then come the revealing.

Take this further shall we to the point of your computer and its programming someone had to write the program in order for it to have existence if you will. Now even the animals have senses but are they self aware, do they act on instinct or free will? The whole concept of the universe as a giant hologram containing both matter and consciousness as a single field should excite anyone who has asked the question “What is reality?” It also speaks volumes to what we know started what is the so called big bang theory. Science states that it took time, space, energy and mass for the worlds to have been created. The first verse in the Bible answers this question and reads as follows. In the beginning (time) “God’ (ultimate energy) created the heavens (space) and the earth (mass) this is a scientific truth! Now keeping with the laws of thermodynamics and the expanse as it is called the energy as we know is constant and remains the same (GOD) declares I am the Lord thy god and do not change! The creative force or consciousness (Software, “your’ words above) as a collective is your back up for the computer you call us and the Bible tells us that the father is a spirit, the apostle Paul tells us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord we go back to where we came from and yet still self aware and immortal as we are made of just the light (software) because the body (hardware) has died due to a virus and corruption. The body is the mass and the Consciousness is light the very thing that bonds all that we know together as a solid when the soul leaves or consciousness the matter falls apart and returns to particles This is pure science!

Think of the universe as a giant body of water the rivers and streams lead to the bigger body of water and as the water even though it may be contaminated if it hits the “Rock of life” it is cleaned and purified and returns to the larger body, Jesus is that rock that cleans and purifies we are the single drops that make up the rivers that feed to the larger body..

Think of accepting the Lord Jesus as savior as the reset button on your computer, or your antivirus program where all the old programming is deleted and your software has been upgraded and renewed. Our problem today is that we are not letting our software (the soul or spiritual self) control what the hardware (the body physical being) is doing and we are under attack by a bunch of hackers trying to overtake our computers with faulty programming.

Let me state this again for the science minded who need the facts!

The 1st Law of Thermodynamics states that matter can be neither created nor destroyed, and that the amount of matter in the universe remains constant. If the First Law is correct, which every scientific measurement ever made has confirmed, then the universe could not have created itself, it must have been created

in the past, no further creating must be going on, and no loss of creation is occurring. The Bible is the only religious book that correctly portrays the First Law by 1) its description in Genesis of a Creator who is no longer creating, and 2) a Creator who is "upholding all things by the word of his power (NKJ, Heb 1:3)" . 3 The energy being your soul cannot be destroyed it only changes shape!

The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, which states that all systems degenerate from order to disorder, was regarded by Albert Einstein to be the premier Law in science. Again the Bible is the only religious book to accurately describe this Law: "For the heavens will vanish away like smoke, the earth will grow old like a garment... (NKJ, Isa 51:6)", and also a New Testament rendering: "You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain; and they will all grow old like a garment; (NKJ, Heb 1:10-11)"So what else do we learn from this? For one thing we are made up of energy and the very thing we call our soul is included. So what happens to your soul when you die? if you're Christian you know the answer to this question. See the first law listed above and know there is life after death and even science knows and proves this very fact! Only God can create something from nothing and all the laws of God are under his control and upheld by the word of his power.
