God isn't the god of the dead but of the living (Luke 20:38) but regarding your specific experience I'd say that your grandfather has been on your heart recently. That God used the dream to comfort your heart (Num. 12:6). Let me point out many Eastern Christian traditions believe in communicating with the Christian deceased. I, on the other hand, think that ...

According to an account in Hebrews, after death comes judgment. The term judgment here is particular in which the souls of men are brought to eternal peace or eternal woe. In parallel, there is no way that your grandfather "visited" you once more. However, on account of the Transfiguration of Jesus, Peter saw similar images of Elijah and Moses with Jesus. ...

My answer is a question: In the statement 'Many are called, but few are chosen', what do 'many' and 'few' mean? The Good Shepherd (Matthew 18:12-14) leaves the 99 sheep to find the one lost sheep. To him, one lost sheep is too many. To God, "any" lost people might be many, and anything short of "all" might be few. Consider also a second observation. God ...

Its not about believing most will not be saved based on opinion. Thats what Matthew 7:13 states..."Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it". Why try to dispute this verse with another verse? God's word isnt going to contradict itself. Jesus came to provide a way of a ...

What is the Biblical basis for death being the last point for repentance? Before death is the time when we do that which can be judged. Judgment of works for punishment is what comes to those who have rejected Jesus. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: The time to "know" Jesus is while we are ...

According to low of physics and theory of relativity. Time can only functions inside the materialistic world. It must interact with the matter. E = mc2 If the spiritual world doesn't consist of matter, which we think doesn't then the time doesn't matter. The beings can be 'at the same time' 'at the same place'. Place has the same meaning as time. The ...

The difficulty you experience, understanding the "timeline" of heaven, is a common one and the problem is simple. Most people view God, creation, time and eternity from our own perspective rather than from His perspective. From an earthbound view rather than from an eternal view. We assume, because we dont know any better, that our "experience" is an ...
