There are so many who claim that death is a yet to be defeated enemy and Jesus will come one day to defeat death as it is the last enemy.
You guys are dreaming.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
You base your promise on this verse without knowing where it comes from.
He will swallow up death forever;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,
and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.
Now let’s look at the context.
And he will swallow up on this mountain
the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.
It is pertinent to note that the death John and Isaiah speaks about has to do with 3 things.
1. A mountain.
2. A covering.
3. A veil.
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.
As you can see the pre-cross and AD70 Jerusalem is that mountain.
2 Corinthians 4:4
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
What exactly did the god of that age use to cover the minds of the unbelievers of that time?
2 Corinthians 3:14-15
But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts.
So what is the death john was referring to?
2 Corinthians 3:7
Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end.
It was the Law. More specifically the 10 commandments.
Not the physical death that the church talks to you about. That also means Revelation 21 and 22 are fulfilled in AD70 when the Law finally came to an end.
There is also no more tree of knowledge of good and evil anymore.
Let us not live under a shroud of doom and gloom. That mountain which was the temple on Jerusalem was totally destroyed in AD70 together with its covering.
We don’t live under a shroud anymore. We live in the kingdom of light. We live because the Light of all Men live in us.
Please don’t listen to these moronic pretentious partial preterits who tells us that the final 3 chapters of Revelation is unfulfilled.
Such people are heavy clouds but produce no rain. They are such a burden for people to carry.
So spread out your wings of knowing you are already living life eternal.
