STATE OF THE DEAD

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man BECAME A LIVING SOUL. Genesis 2:7
(God formed Adam out of the earth, but was not alive until God breathed life into him)

And the SERPENT SAID unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: Genesis 3:4
(Satan deceived Eve into believing that she could become immortal. Since Eve died, we know this is not true)

So man lies down, and rises not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. His sons come to honor, and he knows it not; Job 14:12, 21
(When someone dies they are unaware that anything is going on around them)

...thou takes away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.  Psalm 104:29
(The reverse of creation is death. When God withdraws His breath of life, man then returns to the dust from which he was originally formed)

His breath goes forth, he returns to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Psalm 146:4
(Once a person dies, they are unable to think or do  anything else because the breath of life has returned to God)

For the living know that they shall die; BUT THE DEAD KNOW NOT ANYTHING,...there is no work, no device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, where thou goes.  Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6, 10

2ND COMING

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us...Isaiah 25:9

For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up... for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet. Mal 4:1

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; .. For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be..Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord does come.  Matthew 24:23-27,42
 (People will be deceived by those who proclaim to be Christ, and Satan himself will try to deceive many. See II Thess. 2:9)

SABBATH

And God BLESSED the SEVENTH DAY, and SANCTIFIED IT... Genesis 2:1-3
(The Sabbath was instituted at Creation and was made sacred by God)

REMEMBER the Sabbath day, to KEEP IT holy. Exodus 20:8-11
(The 4th Commandment points to God's created day, making it impossible to change)

Six days you shall gather it (manna); but on the Seventh Day which is the Sabbath, in it there shall be none.
Ex 16:25-28 (The Sabbath was kept by God's people before the law was given on Mt.Sinai, showing it pre-existed before the law)

And the Lord delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of GOD...  Deuteronomy 9:10

My covenant will I not break, not alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Psalm 89:34
(God will not alter or change His law)

WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?


I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine  iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgave the iniquity of my sin. Psalm 32:5


Only through sincere repentance and forsaking  of sin will God forgive us our sins. John 1:9

He that covers his sins shall not prosper; but whoever confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy. Proverbs 28:13


Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. Isaiah 45:22

Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.                    Jer 13:23                                      
                                                                                                                                                                                          Only God can change our hearts. There is nothing we can do to change our sinful nature.   
ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT A GIFT  FROM GOD, BUT THE GIFT OF GOD-
