Chaplain R.T. Byrum
What happens right after a person dies? Whether or not he or she is a Christian, the answer is the same, and it is probably not what you have been taught to believe.
A word of caution: If you have recently lost a loved one this message may be on too sensitive a topic at this time. You may wish to bookmark it, however, for a later viewing.
Over the years, we have delivered programs that dealt with questions about the Immortality of the Soul, the Truth about Hell, the Rapture, the Tribulation and many other prophetic revelations.
It appears, however, that there are an increasing number of programs, movies and social media videos about people claimed to have died, gone to heaven and were allowed to return to describe what they’ve seen.
My team and I have no intention of impugning motives for what a person believes that they have experienced, but we do have a burden to test the reality of such reports through the unchanging Word of God.
Stay with us to the end of this message as we prove that both the saved and the unbeliever all sleep in death that lasts until their awakening at the last trumpet. In fairness, we will look at both sides of the questions that are raised by how one interprets the scriptures.
There are those who point to the Apostle Paul’s statement as recorded in Philippians as proof that the dead in Christ go immediately to heaven when they die.
