And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Life Beyond Death

Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if ChrContinue Reading

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

“God Answered Questions:” yesterday, Is There a Hell?, Is There Separation in Life?; tomorrow, Is There a Judgment?; the next day, Does My Soul Live Forever?; and last on Friday, Can the Blood of Christ Save Us? Today, Is There a Heaven? I have not opportunity to read the basis of the Scripture that lies back of the sermon. It is the last two chapters of the Bible; chapters 21 and 22 of the Revelation.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in tormeContinue Reading
