Life After Death Series: Part 2 – What is Death? – 119 Ministries

There are so many questions that get asked about Scripture, but one of the oldest and most common has to do with life after death. But we’ve found that in order to answer that, we must first answer the question, “What is death?”

Excellent as usual!!!

Curt Pitonak says:

One question, where did Yeshua go for three days after his crucifixion?

Bananas says:

Okay so your body is dust you're alive because of the spirit of Yahweh and the combination is your soul. When you die your soul goes away your spirit returns to Yahweh and your body returns to dust. So, what comes back at the resurrection?

truth searcher says:

This is a great teaching. So many people have grown up being taught the wrong things about the afterlife. My son is scared to death that he will go to hell and burn forever. (He has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) so he thinks about it a lot! He is a believer in Christ and we have recently begun following Torah teachings. This will help greatly in talking with him. Please pray for him. Thanks so much for your ministry.

Joint Heir says:

Quote: "Think of it this way. If the punishment of sin is eternal burning in Hell, then why is Yeshua not still

burning in Hell if that is the punishment he took for us? Why would unbelievers face a greater

punishment than the punishment Yeshua took for us?"
I deserve an eternal punishment for my sins against the eternal YHWH much, much more than Yeshua deserved to be crucified.
Believing that an unrepentant sinner who rejects YHWH burning for eternity is a greater punishment than an innocent, perfect, loving Yeshua bearing the sins of the world by being nailed naked to a cross, being mocked, spit on, beaten, humiliated, etc is cheapening the precious blood of Yeshua. It is not about the punishment, but rather who the punishment is done to.

Joint Heir says:

Paul saw paradise. 2 Corinthians 12:1-4
He then said it would be a gain for him to die. Philippians 4:21-23
Is it gain for an unbeliever to die? If believers and unbelievers are both unconscious at death, then why would it be a gain for one and not the other?
Why would being unconscious at death be greater than exalting Christ in the body for a believer?
Why did Jesus say to one thief on the cross, "you will be with me"? Why did He not say it to the other thief? Why did He say it to the one thief in the first place if we all go to be with Him at death anyways?

Revelation 6:9-11 9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar THE SOULS of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; 10 and THEY CRIED OUT with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also.

Were these souls unconscious?

Luke 16:19-31 Did Jesus hold the view that believers and unbelievers will be with him and unconscious at death?


You Christian's are funny. You will basically spell out REINCARNATION but wont believe. Judaism has the answers.

Captain Nemo says:

Gangstalkers are Evangelicals The Church of Latter Day Saints they are all from some protestant denomination . They want substitutionary atonement by SCAPEGOATING you until you agree to get baptized and are born again. Masons are the technicians they use.. finger pointing alot, moving their hands and making discreet triangles, also touching their face, they also use holograms, color coding, bright lights, hacking your technology, moving things around your home, making you have health problems by poisoning your food and water and by abusing your body, they also use your family, magnetic fields, drugs, high frequency infrared light to heat your house or body, street theater, gaslighting, paid actors in your neighborhood including store clerks etc. They also use alot of psychology like guilt, shame, depression, etc.. These are some of their tools but the most important strategy they use is MANIPULATION.

Sia sesay says:

Every time that I subscribed to you, someone change it. They do not want us preach the gospel.

How did God hear Abel crying from the grave?


Wonderful teaching, Blessings for this series

marsha okhiria says:

You said that no one will be tormented in hell forever otherwise Yeshua would also be tormented forever. Are you saying that yeshua was in the lake of fire burning for 3days for those who will DIE in the lake of fire?! Blasphemy! Also, you twisted the last part of the argument. You did not present it the way most christians do believe. maybe it was not intentionally. According to popular belief, back before Yeshua died for our sins, God fairing believers were in a place known as "Abraham's Bosom." This is not purgatory but a waiting area, for lack of better term. Sinners, on the other hand, are in a place of darkness. likewise waiting for the judgment. Now, after the judgement believers will go to paradise and sinners will go to hell. One into everlasting life and one into everlasting condemnation. It is believed Yeshua died(the sacrifical lamb) by paying the penalty of sin so that we CAN be with him in paradise. Yeshua did not go to hell and born because many people will go there. So, in the same way, he wouldnt be in eternal torment because some people will go there.

I dont understnd why God would take the spirits of those who died, then rise them up again, only to send them to burn for a couple of minutes. After they have died then take the spirit back again. Since they were already dead why not just leave them dead forever!

Christopher Laing says:

Well let's test this presentation shall we???
He could have quoted Eccl 9:5 which clearly states that the dead know nothing at all which would have answered the question of what death brings.
He makes mention of John 17:3 BUT does not explain WHO the true GOD is or who Yehushua, whom this one true GOD has "sent" is. Who else has GOD " sent " down through the ages ???
Does he assume everyone listening to this presentation believes in the same God as he does???
Is his God, the GOD of Deuteronomy 6:4, the ONE and only TRUE GOD of Israel and affirmed by Yehushua himself in Mark 12:28-35 OR is he the triune god of the professing Platonic, Greek, Hellenistic Gnostic based church of today?
Is his Yehushua the promised human Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures found in Genesis 3:15, Deuteronomy 18:15-20, 2 Samuel 7 12:15, who was uniquely created in the womb of Mary Luke 1:35, by the power of GOD's ruach spirit for which he was called the son of the Most High, OR is he the god-man of incarnation that is believed today along with a separate spirit being called the Holy Spirit???
What does Yehushua mean that he was " sent from GOD " and " He was sent down from heaven or came down from heaven" ???
He quoted Yehushua's words in John 6:52-58 concerning the eating of his flesh and drinking of his blood as the bases of living eternally but offers no explanation as to what these verses mean as some today believe they must yet eat the flesh and drink blood of Messiah to gain eternal life. He makes no mention of the metaphorical meaning of eating his flesh and drinking his blood which is considered to be cannibalism today, which sadly leaves many wondering just what these verses are saying in lieu of explaining what death is.
Was this Messiah he states died for us and was " THE ONLY PERSON "who has been resurrected from the grave a human being only or GOD in the flesh??? Was the GOD part separated from the human part at death as is believed today???
Did Messiah die for us as GOD in the flesh as is believed today OR did he, as the Hebrew Scriptures teach, standing in GOD's stead as His " Principle Agent Representative ", shed his blood and give his own life in death, that GOD could NOT accomplish as GOD is a Spirit who cannot die, in order to fulfill the righteous demands of GOD for the sin of the world to be able to reconcile the House of Israel back to Himself, which was Yehushua's primary task outside of preaching the Gospel of the soon coming Kingdom of GOD. Matthew 15:24???
His substitutionary shed blood and death in GOD's stead, also made it possible for the House of Judah to be reconciled back to GOD as well in order to make the promised covenants of Jeremiah 31:31 possible.
And later was applied for the whole of mankind to be reconciled to GOD as well through faith in the finished work of the new man Ha Mashiach Yehushua whom GOD raised from the dead as a reward for his willing obedience to suffer the shedding of his own blood and his giving of his own life in the death, in GOD's stead, that GOD could not accomplish.

This is the mystery of the Gospel that begins in Deuteronomy 24:1-4, with the divorcement of the House of Israel by GOd with a written Bill of Divorcement, who then could not be reconciled to her first husband after she had married another and continues in Jeremiah 31:31 with the renewed covenant promises Yehushua speaks of at the Last Supper for both the House of Israel and the House of Judah and is then explained in more detail by Paul in Roman's 7 with the teaching of the necessity of the death of the first husband in order to free the bride from the law of the first husband to remarry again without being considered an adulterous.

He goes out of the way to try and explain one thing and fails to see the conundrum he creates by failing to explain the verses he quotes outside of the topic he trying to explain.

Much prayer is needed for this ministry as it appears their core beliefs are NOT IN LINE with the Hebraic understanding of the Scriptures especially the Hebrew understanding of the unique oneness of Yahuwah GOD and the Hebrew understanding of the " Principle of Agency " whereby as chosen agent of GOD, be they angelic or human, not only spoke for GOD but were actually considered to legitimately be GOD with all power and authority to accomplish GOD's will for His creation of whom Moses was the greatest example of this principle of agency outside of Yehushua Ha Mashiach as found beginning in Exodus 7:1. This same power and authority, as Yahuwah GOD's uniquely created human Principle Agent Representative, Yehushua acknowledges as being given to him, as spoken of in John 5:26-27 to accomplish his mission of GOD's Principle Agent Representative to accomplish the work of redemption and then again in complete fulfillment as GOD's anointed King of kings and Lord of lords in Matthew 28:18 as part of his exaltation spoken of in Philippian's 2.
If we fail to get the principle doctrines in order, then everything else suffers from a lack of true Hebraic understanding and we malign the glory of GOD and everything associated with it.

You guys should read the book of enoch and jubilees and jasher.

Mike yo says:

So what do u guys think about all these NDEs. Millions of people have died for anywhere from a minutes to almost 2hours, and came back and told of meeting Jesus or long passed away family members or angels. Etc. And what did Paul mean when he said to be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD. And why did Jesus tell the thief on the cross, today you will be with me in paradise. If the thief was uunconcious and not be aware of his surroundings, then why would Jesus have waisted his breath on telling him he'd be in paradise with the LORD. I believe your very much awake, very much able to be aware of your surroundings. Check out some of them ndes where people watched everything from above and told the doctors or paramedics what they did and said and at what time they did it while the person was dead. Brain dead, no heart beat no sign of life and gone but yet they're spirit or soul was just above folks in the room.

Nenad Bogdan says:

What about this?
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Revelation 20:10

Mike yo says:

I totally forgot what this video was about after watching 8 minutes of commercial and ads.

Sergio Becerra says:

I’m really enjoying this series but I have a question:
It was stated that nobody aside from Christ has been resurrected yet but what do we do with these verses?
Mat 27:51  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
Mat 27:52  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
Mat 27:53  And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Moses Elijah and Enoch are the only ones we know f0r sure are in Heaven

bowmanaus says:

Shabbat Shalom brothers and sisters all over the world!

the disciple says:

I just don't like the way he simply said ,yeshua died and didn't deserve it, yeshua was spit on and brutally tortured…. Isaiah 53:5 but he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.6 all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.7 he was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the SLAUGHTER, and as a sheep before her Shearer's is dumb, so he opened not his mouth……
So I forget this teaching .

wesley ogilvie says:

Here's what's been on my mind, in order for one to burn in hell for all eternity, that soul must be granted eternal life to have to face that. In scripture, it says "those who believe in Him (Jesus) will not perish, but have everlasting life. So only those who believe in Jesus and live righteously are granted eternal life in the end, not the wicked who are promised destruction. That alone should debunk the whole eternal fire theology.

Mikhael Mikhael says:

I really enjoy your channel. Also, I know you go to great lengths to try to research and discuss a topic. But, when you are saying “the Jews “ , You are mistranslating where it should actually read Judeans as opposed to Galileans. Maybe something worth discussing on your next topic.

B Good says:

This is awesome 119!! Great job. I call it the "dirt nap"……it will be like sleeping.

L'ancien Sentier says:

Interesting approach. I know you'll probably address the question in an upcoming episode, but I'm very curious about how you're going to solve this :

(Mt 17.1–4) And after six days Jesus took along Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothing became bright as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with him. So Peter answered and* said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here! If you want, I will make here three shelters, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.


I humbaly disagree the body & the soul are not the same & though spirit & soul can be used interchangeably there is a distinction . the spirit which the Father gave returns to Him being the breath of life the body returns to the dust & the soul is where all go till resurrection too the sheol or hades if u prefer . If as some teach u go straight too Heaven & hell there's no point or reason for the day of judgement . Now u can say think or believe the parrabal about Lazarus & the rich man was a fictional story . But Jesus told the theif this day he'd be with Him in paradise if that just ment grave then those are very empty words with no too little hope . But I guess the bible must be foolish according to this teaching if jesus just slept that is . Did he not venture into the underworld & conversed with spirits ? I thought u just taught & said he was asleep unconscious & unaware ? Which is it ?

Robert Garrens says:

The only thing that baffles me is how is samuel able to saul if there's no awareness after death.

Steven *Fos76* Foster says:

good Sabbath Day sermon exactly in line with what we are taught in Adventism Shalom all, research flat earth and jesuit mas0nic pseudoscience u might think its unsalvivic but its very important

Sabastian Duke says:

So you are literally saying that you ARE saved by keeping the law of Moses . And that anyone that doesn’t keep the law of Moses isn’t saved. You aren’t applying your theology honestly. You call people brothers and that you believe you are saved by grace, yet you yourself say that those that don’t keep the whole law of Moses aren’t saved. Woe to the hypocrites. The leaven of the Pharisees is hypocrisy.
