Life after death and the existence of spirits
The Messenger’s Teachings on
Life After Death and the Existence of Spirit
Transcribed from the audio-taped lecture of Theology of Time, June 4, 1972
Christianity. What is Christ? What does Christ mean? What is the real
truth of the meaning of Christ? It means one coming in the last days to
crush the world of evil. Christ is a crusher. You don?t get that name in
the Bible until his time, then you read of Christ coming. He?s the
crusher of this religion: a lying religion, a religion that teaches you
must die before you can see the hereafter or the heaven.
This is true if you understood what the liar was saying. Sure, you have
to die mentally, out of the evil death that he put you in. He teaches you
that there is a hereafter after you die, that’s right, but after you die
the MENTAL death that he put you in from slavery, up until now, until the
judgment comes in, then you got to be resurrected totally from the mental
death that you died in, not physically.
There?s nothing after this flesh and bone goes back to the earth. I got
it from earth to build me a body for breath to enter and when breath
entered into the body, he made a sound and from the sound I could walk
and I could guide myself-the breath of life.
Every human being that is born from a parent, if it does not breathe the
breath that is carrying the earth, which we all are breathing, it won?t
live. We say it?s a still-born, right?
He made you to look at it differently. He made you look at breath as
something like a spirit of the body that we can?t see; that?s right too.
We can?t see the air that we are breathing unless we get a microscope,
then we could see the very atom of life in the air.
Those atoms of life in the air are the things that give us life and
whenever the body gets to the point that it can?t draw it in, then we say
The biggest soul we have is air. If you deprive the man of air, then he?s
dead. You could come up here now and start me on my neck, soon you will
have me so I can?t breath and I won?t be talking. That?s the soul that
they preach to you about; that?s the real soul. It is your breath.
There?s no such thing as a little man going out of your mouth and going
to an unknown place; no, no. When you get to the point that you can?t
breath ,the little man in you don?t be a little man – yourself.
Go take this home with you and study. You will come to the knowledge of
truth. You see people drowning and you see him standing up the man on his
head to run water out of his lungs. If too much water is in the lungs,
which brings in the breath of life, then the man will expire, because he
has too much of it. That will kill him.
There is no such thing as a spirit jumping out of your body going
someplace. It?s the spirit that can?t come in that keeps the man alive.
No, we have don?t a soul going out; it?s the “spirit” that can’t come in
that keeps the man alive. No we don’t have a soul going out, it’s the one
we can?t keep in.
Oh Christians, he shows you the sign of his great religion that has
doomed millions and billions of people to their graves and they never
knowing the truth of it. He says, believe in the cross, that sign. He
says believe in Jesus and you don?t have sense enough to chase him. You
don?t have sense enough to make him give you the knowledge of what he?s
teaching. You take it for granted that everything he says in the truth.
“The cross, believe in the cross my brother,” he says. “I will cling to
that old cross.” Yeah, “Oh yonder,” he says, “on yonder hills stands an
old cross.” Yeah; its a sign of shame. “It?s a sign of my guilt of
murdering the prophets of God, because I was at cross roads with them in
the science of truth. So, here it is, blind deaf and dumb black man,
follow this and you will go to heaven and meet Jesus.”
How many have been there and came back and told you that? There is no man
that dies and goes back to the earth, then returns again. That is the
thing that just doesn?t happen. You say “Well Jesus rose again”. Yes,
he?s rising now! The resurrection of Jesus means the resurrection of
justice among you and me, that?s what it means. It doesn?t mean that man
will come back alive like he once was.
