Now my son,

        Here is somewhat more I would say unto thee; ...For I perceive that thy mind is worried                                                                             concerning the resurrection of the dead.
Behold, I say unto you,

                       that there is no resurrection—or, I would say, in other words,

that this mortal does not put on immortality, this corruption does not put on incorruption—      

              Until after.... the coming of Christ.
 Behold, he bringeth to pass the resurrection of the dead.

         But behold, my son,

The resurrection is not yet. Now, I unfold unto you a mystery;

nevertheless, there are many mysteries which are kept, that no one knoweth them save God himself.

But I show unto you one thing... which I have inquired diligently of God, that I might know—

                                                                                                                      that is concerning the resurrection.
 Behold, there is a time appointed... that all shall come forth from the dead.

Now when this time cometh no one knows; but God knoweth the time which is appointed.
 Now, whether there shall be one time, or a second time, or a third time,

                                     that men shall come forth from the dead, it mattereth not;

                                                for God knoweth all these things; and it sufficeth me to know that this is the case .......that there is a time appointed that all shall rise from the dead.
 Now there must needs be a space, betwixt the time of death and the time of the resurrection.
 And now I would inquire what becometh of the souls of men

                            from this time of death to the time appointed for the resurrection?
 Now whether there is more than one time appointed for men to rise it mattereth not;

        for all do not die at once, and this mattereth not;

                             all is as one day with God, and time only is measured unto men.

 Therefore, there is a time appointed unto men that they shall rise from the dead;

               and there is a space between the time of death and the resurrection.

                                       And now, concerning this space of time, what becometh of the souls of men

is the thing which I have inquired diligently of the Lord to know; and this is the thing of which I do know.
 And when the time cometh when all shall rise, then shall they know

                                     that God knoweth all the times which are appointed unto man.
 Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—

   Behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel,

     that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body,

    yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life.
And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of those who are righteous are received into a state                                of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace,

                      where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow.
 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of the wicked, yea, who are evil—

for behold, they have no part nor portion of the Spirit of the Lord;

      for behold, they chose evil works rather than good;

                  therefore the spirit of the devil did enter into them, and take possession of their house—

                         and these shall be cast out into outer darkness;

there.... shall be...... weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth,

and this because of their own iniquity, being led captive by the will of the devil.
Now this is the state of the souls of the wicked, yea, in darkness, and a state of awful, fearful looking for the fieryindignation of the wrath of God upon them; thus they remain in this state, as well as the righteous in paradise, until the time of their resurrection.
Now, there are some that have understood that this state of happiness and this state of misery of the soul, before the resurrection, was a first resurrection. Yea, I admit it may be termed a resurrection, the raising of the spirit or the soul and their consignation to happiness or misery, according to the words which have been spoken.
And behold, again it hath been spoken, that there is a first resurrection, a resurrection of all those who have been, or who are, or who shall be, down to the resurrection of Christ from the dead.
 Now, we do not suppose that this first resurrection, which is spoken of in this manner, can be the resurrection of the souls and their consignation to happiness or misery. Ye cannot suppose that this is what it meaneth.
Behold, I say unto you, Nay; but it meaneth there uniting of the soul with the body, of those from the days of Adam down to the resurrection of Christ.
 Now, whether the souls and the bodies of those of whom has been spoken shall all be reunited at once, the wicked as well as the righteous, I do not say; let it suffice, that I say that they all come forth; or in other words, their resurrection cometh to pass before the resurrection of those who die after the resurrection of Christ.
 Now, my son, I do not say that their resurrection cometh at the resurrection of Christ; but behold, I give it as my opinion, that the souls and the bodies are reunited, of the righteous, at the resurrection of Christ, and his ascension into heaven.

 But whether it be at his resurrection or after, I do not say; but this much I say, that there is a space between death and the resurrection of the body, and a state of the soul in happiness or in misery until the time which is appointed of God that the dead shall come forth, and be reunited, both soul and body, and be brought to stand before God, and be judged according to their works.

​​ But thou,

          O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, 

Even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro,                       and knowledge shall be increased.


But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing,

          that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years,

                    and a thousand years as one day.



The Day After you Die

 I think, it will be sad, in one hand

         and happy in another

The Day After you Die

 I think, it will be sad, in one hand

         and happy in another

I think we will ponder           our time spent on Earth

I think we will know           our time spent

I think we will answer for our Deed's

       

           During ,

                     Our time spent

Time... Is Time....Thats all.


It's all ...About your point of origin.
