LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Then he said to me, `Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord’…” (Ezekiel 37:4-6, the Holy Bible).
CADAVERS ARE BEING STOLEN IN SURIGAO CITY? One avid follower of this column from Surigao City sent to us a chilling information that a group of men are roaming around the city doing many mischiefs under cover of darkness, including the theft of cadavers and bones from a cemetery in Bgy. San Pedro. I asked the guy who sent this information to me if the authorities in the city have already established the motive for the theft of the cadavers and bones, but he said nothing has been determined with finality yet. So I did a little research through Google, and it looked to me as if the ones stealing the dead belong to a cult in the city.
In one interesting news item, one possibility surfaced, to the effect that the cadavers and bones being stolen from the cemetery are being used for some weird rituals of the cult. There was no mention of the name of the cult or of the names of its leaders, but that is no longer important. What would be important is for our people to avoid this group or things like this because it is not right that cadavers are removed from where they were interred.
CADAVERS WOULD BE GIVEN LIFE AGAIN: If we are to consider what is already written, there is an assurance that the cadavers of people who have died would be brought back to life at the moment that this world comes to its end. According to the pronouncements of a man named Ezekiel, he was told by God that all cadavers from the four corners of the earth would be given back their limbs, tendons, flesh, and skin.
They would also be able to breath again, just like before they died. Then, after they are brought back to life, they would then be subjected to an accounting of what they thought of, spoke, and did when they were still living. The basis of this accounting would be grave—whether or not they placed their faith in Jesus.
If they placed their faith in Jesus and obeyed what he commanded everyone to do when they were still alive, they would be immediately brought up to the clouds. In the clouds, they would wait for the people who would still be alive at that time who also placed their faith in Jesus. Once all of them are already in the clouds, fire will burn the sky, the sun, the stars, the moon, and the world, including the dead who were brought back to life but who did not believe in Jesus.
BRINGING THE DEAD BACK TO LIFE WHEN JESUS COMES AGAIN: Just exactly what is going to happen before the dead are brought back to life again? Also according to what is already written, the voice of the archangel will be heard, together with the sound of the trumpet of God. Then, the Lord Himself will go down from the heavens, shouting in a loud voice, directing His angels to go to all the corners of the world.
The angels will gather all those who were brought back to life at that point, but they would be separated into two groups—one group being composed of those who were true to their faith in Jesus, and another group being composed of those who failed to be true to Jesus. The group that proved true to Jesus would be brought up to the clouds. Those who did not have faith in Jesus would be left here on earth.
Those who would still be alive at that point would be divided into two groups too. Those who did not believe in Jesus would also be left on earth, but those who believed in Him would be brought to the clouds, too. Then, all of those who were brought up to the clouds would be brought up to the heavens, where they would be with God forever.
