The Gospels – The Gospel According to Matthew
No marriage in the hereafter
Matthew 22:23-33 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
Marriage in the way that we know it only exists on earth. In the Beyond each stands in service in this Creation with his or her abilities. Those in the Beyond therefore, through homogeneity in the nature of their abilities come together for the achievement of particular tasks. The coming together of two people of opposite sex on earth also should since have had the same high goal. Procreation should have taken a second place.
The perversion of the sexual instinct, however, made this impossible. In the Beyond, there is no procreation as this is only necessary on earth for the coming into being of the physical bodies of earthmen. Hence no need for marriage in the accepted sense. Each person stands for himself over there. This just goes to show that these so-called religious leaders really had nothing further in their minds than the upholding of traditions that they had devised with their brains. They placed their earthly intellectual precepts above the Will of the Creator. In this way these precepts were meant to pass as God’s Law. At least they made the people believe this. When Jesus began to expose this hollow structure, showing the flimsy structure on which the authority of these religious leaders was based, there was no other alternative than for them to hate Him and plan for His elimination.
When people die, contrary to contemporary Christian teaching there is no question of lying in there in suspended animation and then waiting until the return of the Saviour. This teaching is so defective that anyone giving it the most basic thought would dismiss it as ridiculous. So we are meant to lie in suspended animation; and where exactly nobody seems to know; some say in purgatory wherever that is meant to be.
Then what happens to our physical bodies that would have decayed? Well, we will get it back, that is what is said. But how? Through some magic wand all the physical bodies of all those who have died are given back. These are the good remember. What about the evil? They go to hell. It is refreshing that at least a kind of life after death can be envisaged for the evil but none whatsoever for the good. The good have gone to sleep. They rest in peace.
Nothing can be further from the truth and this teaching obviously from what we have been examining so far was not taken from Jesus. Where then did this teaching come from? It is the same story all over again is it not? The introduction of precepts woven by the human mind into the pure Word of God which are now meant to pass as inviolable Truth. We simply in this followed the examples of the scribes of Israel. Traditions with nothing to do with the real Teaching of Jesus have been interwoven into Christianity over the centuries and are now passed on as the Word of Jesus. This is false. Jesus never said anything of the sort and this proof we have.
In His Teaching here Jesus said that God was not a God of the dead but of the living. There is no resting in peace for anyone! Active life is what awaits every single human being either good or bad who passes into the Beyond through the process that we call death. Joyous activity for the good and suffering for the evil. No lying down in some suspended animation. No such thing! There is no giving back of any physical bodies.
If these people are to come to the earth and they need physical bodies then they would have to go through the same process that everyone else must go through, which process was laid down by God from the beginning of time. They must incarnate and become children again and follow the same cycle. No other way is available for the coming to earth of human beings. Those who introduced these concepts would have to show us where in the Word of Jesus we find things like the giving back of physical bodies and suspended animations and so much else.
Those who are good will continue to work on themselves in the Beyond until they are so perfect that they can return to Paradise their home. Those who are evil have to go through such terrible experiences that may induce some of them to change for the better and rise in the Beyond. Those who do not change for the better remain in their dark realm partaking of the sufferings and horror that they helped create through the nature of the activities.
At the end of time, those who have progressed so much in their adherence to the Laws of God will be permitted to see the new day whereas the wicked will be swept away. Where are the dead in all these, we ask? Where is to be found the concept of suspended animation and the giving back of physical bodies in all these? What is stated here is the gist of Christ’s Message. What He spent His lifetime teaching His disciples and what He hoped would be passed on to posterity. His Teachings obviously have not been properly explained and have not borne the fruits that they should have borne due to their lack of application by mankind.
