Misinterpreted Texts On The State Of The Dead
Is there an afterlife?
Does hell exist?
Can the dead communicate?
1. “The Right to the Tree of Life”
In this penetrating study, Pastor Bohr examines the Tree of Life passages from Genesis to Revelation. In the process he shows that man’s life at the beginning and in the new earth was/will be contingent upon continual partaking from the Tree of Life. You will learn many new concepts from this lecture.
2. Rachel’s Departing Soul
Did Rachel have an immortal soul that departed her body the moment she died (Genesis 35:18)? This lecture offers a comprehensive study of the words “body”, “soul,” and “spirit” in the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.
3. A Thief and a Witch
Did the penitent thief really to go Paradise with Jesus on Good Friday? Did Saul speak to the departed soul of Samuel when he went to visit the Witch of Endor? This lecture presents compelling reasons why the thief did not go to Paradise and Saul did not speak with the departed spirit of Samuel.
4. Absent from the Body & Present with the Lord
What did the apostle Paul mean when he expressed his desire to be absent from the body and present with the Lord? Did he want this to take place the moment he died or at the resurrection? A careful analysis of this misunderstood passage in 2 Corinthians 5:1-10.
5. Paul’s Dilemma: Stay or Depart?
Did the apostle Paul believe that he would go to heaven immediately upon the moment of his death? In this careful study, Pastor Bohr analyzes Philippians 1:21-24 and shows that Paul’s hope was not in the immortality of the soul but rather in the resurrection of the dead.
6. Souls Under the Altar
In this incisive study of Revelation 6:9-11 Pastor Bohr answers several questions: Are the souls under the altar the disembodied spirits of the dead? Which altar are they under and how do they cry out? How does the story of Cain and Abel help to explain this passage? How does this passage relate to the beheaded souls of Revelation 20:4?
7. The Spirits of Just Men
Hebrews 12:22-24 refers to the perfecting of a group of just men whose spirits are seemingly worshiping in heaven. Are the disembodied spirits of the faithful dead now in heaven praising the Lord? A careful study of the passage indicates that the religious world has totally misunderstood this beautiful passage of Scripture.
8. Preaching to the Spirit in Prison
This lecture is a comprehensive study of I Peter 3:18-22. Did Jesus go and preach to the spirits of the dead after He died? Who were these spirits in prison and what did Jesus preach to them? The answers to these questions will surprise you.
9. Three Inseparable Distinctive Doctrines
We must study three biblical doctrines together. If we get one of them wrong, the others will be wrong as well. Those their interlocking doctrines are the judgment, the state of the dead, and the second coming of Christ.
10. The Dead Who Stand Before God
How is it possible for dead people to stand before the judgment seat of God? In this study Pastor Bohr provides convincing evidence that Revelation 20:11-12 describes the millennial stage of the judgment while Revelation 20:13-15 describes the post-millennial stage. You will be amazed at this study!
11. The Resurrection and the Life
Is there any connection between the story of the rich man and Lazarus and the resurrection of a man called Lazarus? In this lecture, we will see why the parable of the rich man and Lazarus is the only one that contains a proper name. Some amazing new insights into John 11.
12. The Keys of Hades
An exhaustive study of the Hebrew word Sheol and the Greek word hades. Should these words be translated as “hell”? Conclusive evidence that these words describe the resting place of the dead and not a place of burning.
13. The Rich Man and Lazarus
Does the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus really teach that the wicked suffer conscious torment immediately after death? What is the central lesson of this story? Pastor Bohr shares many new and fresh insights into the background, the audience, and the theological meaning of this story. Conclusive proof that Jesus did not believe in the immortality of the soul but rather in the resurrection of the dead.
14. All Live to Him
Did Jesus teach that the souls of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were conscious and alive in His day? An amazing study on why Jesus told the Sadducees that these three Old Testament heroes lived in His day, before the second coming.
15. Undying Worm and Unquenchable Fire
Did you know that the fire which will consume the wicked will never go out? Did you know that the righteous, not the wicked, will live in the everlasting fire? Did you know that the conscious torment of Satan and his angels would last for a long time? A new and fresh approach to the ‘hell passages’ of the Bible.
16. Immortality of the Soul or Resurrection of the Dead?
Did Jesus teach that the soul of man is conscious and immortal? In this study, Pastor Bohr contrasts the view of death of Socrates and the Greek philosophers with the view of Jesus.
17. The First Post Modern
Satan used five methods to deceive Adam and Eve at the beginning of human history and he is using these same methods to take the world captive in these end times.
18. Spirits of Devils
The danger of spiritualism in the last days. Take Revelation 16:13, 14 as the foundation and quotations from Ellen White. The importance of ignoring the senses, emotions, feelings, what others say, the experts, etc. Our only protection will be in an it is written. Talk about Satan’s counterfeit second coming.
