The Birth of Death:

Genesis 2:15-17

(15) And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
(16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
(17) But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

THOU SHALT SURELY DIE!

Of all the Arguments and Criticisms that people come up with regarding the Bible (the AV), they can't argue or debate or criticize away the fact that they are going to die, and NO OTHER BOOK in the world can tell them what happens to you 5 seconds after you take your last breath.

What is DEATH?

According to "science" and the medical prophesion, it is when the "biological functions that sustain a living organism" are terminated.

You have,
Clinical death
Legal death
Biblical death

Signs of Clinical death:
The cessation (ceasing) of blood circulation and breathing. 100 years ago and before CPR, a person would be considered "dead" whereas today they can be recessitated.

The cause of Death:
SIN!

Genesis 3:1-4
(1) Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
(2) And the woman said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
(3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT, lest ye die.

Of course, God didn't say that. He didn't say "Neither shall ye touch it",The "original sin" is MESSING WITH WHAT GOD SAID. This shows how peole get an attitude to what God says. Eve just came up with a EIV (EVE INTERNATIONAL VERSION) of Gods word.

(4) And the serpent said unto the woman, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.

Satan has been telling people that lie for thousands of years.

"YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE"
Guess what Ye will SURELY die!

The cause of DEATH:
Genesis 3:5-6
Satans discourse with EVE continued.
(5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat therof , that your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

(6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food...
That is, "the tree is pleasureable to my flesh, it makes me feel good"

...And that it was pleasant to the eyes;
"I like what I see, so I see what I like"

Matthew 6:22
The light of the body is the eye:

1 John 2:16-17
(15) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and THE LUST OF THE EYES, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
(16) And the world passeth away..
(the term people use to describe DEATH; "He passes away")
...and the lust thereof: But he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.

The will of God for you, my friend, is to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour today, and to trust what he did at Calvary as the payment for your wicked sins.

...And a tree to be desired to make one wise...

The quest for WISDOM has destroyed many of people. All the so-called great Philosophers were deceived and destroyed in their quest for WISDOM Without God. Wisdom without UNDERSTANDING is equivalent to a Black Hole. It may be immense, enormous and captivating, But in the end, it emits NO LIGHT. As a matter of fact, it absorbs and swallows up all light.

Like the School system across America.

Wisdom without understanding is a Platonic world of Intelligent Devils.

The Original Philosopher:
Ezekiel 28:12,17
(12) Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God; Thou sealest up the sum, FULL OF WISDOM and perfect in BEAUTY.
(17) Thine HEART WAS LIFTED UP because of thine BEAUTY...
Like many "ladies" across America. The "original" BEAUTY QUEEN was Satan.

...Thou hast CORRUPTED THY WISDOM by reason of thy brightness.

Many people have CORRUPTED WISDOM.

...I will cast thee to the ground. I will lay thee before kings. That they may behold thee.

Proverbs 4:5,7
(5) Get wisdom,get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
(7) Wisdom is the princible thing: Therefore get wisdom; and with all thy getting, get UNDERSTANDING.

Proverbs 3:13
HAPPY is the man that findeth wisdom, AND THE MAN THAT GETTETH UNDERSTANDING.

I talked to scores of people that look me in the face and say "I just don't understand the Bible" or "I just don't understand what your saying". You need to just pray to God and ask Him to GIVE YOU UNDERSTANDING.
It's like a man I once knew that had a stroke. When he awoke in the hospital and saw the Television, all the words running across the screen were just letters, He could not discern between the letters to make out words. That's how lost, blind unregenerate people see the Bible. Just letters and undiscernable words.

Some may say:
"But Adam didn't die the DAY He ate of the fruit of the tree"

Genesis 3:6-7
(6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes...
The birthplace of all filth in peolples lives: THE EYES.
Matthew 6:22
The light of the body is the EYE:

"I can't stand him, but he sure does look good"
"She has no personality whatsoever, but she's nice EYECANDY"

...And a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof; and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her: and he did eat.

(7) And the EYES of them both were OPENED...

You would think it was a good thing to have, i.e, their eyes opened. But it's not when it involves SIN and SINNING AGAINST GOD.

Hense, the popular expression, " Boy were my eyes opened".

...And they knew that they were NAKED; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Many people across America have a FIG LEAVE religion. They're trying to cover thmselves with their own "good works". It's not sufficient.

The DAY that Adam and EVE took of the fruit they died spiritually, that is why Jesus Christ said:

John 3:3,7
(3) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be BORN AGAIN, He cannot see the kingdom of God.

(7) Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be BORN AGAIN,

Speaking of a Saved person:
Ephesians 2:1
And you hath he Quickened ...
QUICKENED means "to bring to life" or "to make alive".

...who were dead in trespasses and sins.

Adam died physically:
Genesis 5:5
And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: AND HE DIED.

Adam lived less than 1000 years.

2 Peter 3:8
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.

So as far as God was concerned, Adam died the day he took of the fruit.
Romans 6:23
For the wages of SIN is DEATH, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The definition of "death":
According to the world and "science".
Death is the "termination of the biological functions that sustain a living organism"

"termination of life"
DEAD:
No longer living.
Lacking warmth.
Lacking feeling and unresponsive.

Death according to the Bible:
Genesis 35:16-18
(16) And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Epheath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.
(17) And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.
(18) And it came to pass, as her SOUL WAS IN DEPARTING,(For SHE DIED) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.

Death according to God is when the soul leaves the body.

Death and the Child of God (Christians).

2 Timothy 4:6
For I am now READY to be offered...

Paul was ready to die. Are you?

...And the time of my departure...
As far as Paul was concerned, his soon upcoming death (He would have his head cut off, that is, decapitated under Nero in 68 AD) was only merely a departure,(the term used throughout the world hundreds of times a day to describe people's flights leaving the terminals).

2 Corinthians 5:6-8
(6) Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, Whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
(7)(For we walk by faith and not by sight)
(8) We are confident, I say, AND WILLING rather to be ABSENT FROM THE BODY, and to be present with the Lord.

Death and the lost man:

Luke 16:22-24
(22) And it came to pass, that the begger died, and was carried by the angels into Abrahams bosem:...

This being before the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today when a child of God dies, they go straight to heaven.

...The rich man also died and was buried:

(23) And in HELL he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazerus in his bosem.
(24) And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazerus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue: FOR I AM TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME.

DEATH is not the end, regardless of weather or not you are saved.

Words spoken to family members in an attempt to comfort them after their loved one has "gone on".

"Well, at least they're not suffering anymore."

The truth: If they were lost, that is, never been saved, never been BORN AGAIN, never trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior, their suffering has just begun. The comfort to the family is, at least now you can't see their suffering.

Ranked by frequency.
Top 3 causes of death:

1. Cadiovascular disease:
Disease of the heart or blood vessels.

You can apply this verse physically or spiritually. Either way, if your heart gets bad, you have a diseased life.

2. Cancer.
Is primarily a environmental disease.(People are infected by their environment).
Different Cancers: All Leukemia, Bone Cancer, Breast Cancer, Brain Tumor, Colon Cancer, Gall Bladder, Hodgkin Lymphoma, Lung Cancer, Mesothelioma, Testicular Cancer.

2 Timothy 2:15-17
(15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly deviding the word of truth.
(16) But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

(17) And THEIR WORD WILL EAT AS DOTH A CANKER:

That is, CANCER!

...of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus.

Ezekiel 24:15-16
(15) Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
(16) Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes WITH A STROKE: Yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down.

A STROKE, many times, is how God deals with people.

Are they dead?

Throughout history, scores of people have thought to have been deceased, only to awake from their "death". The fact is, they:

Had no noticeable pulse.
Had no indication of lung activity.
Had no heartbeat that could be detected (heard),

But they were still alive.

-Many of these people have been found to have been buried alive accidentally.

-The universal phobia is the fear of being buried alive.

-In the 16th Century, the body of a Matthew Wall was being carried to his grave in England. One of the pallbearers tripped, and his coffin was dropped. When the coffin hit the ground, Mat was revived. He would live for several more years.

-In the 17th Century, a woman by the name of M. Elphinstone died and was buried in Scotland. When grave robbers tried to steal jewels from her coffin, she started groaning which scared the robbers (to say the least). She walked home and would outlive her husband.

-Another incident took place in Scotland with another lady and a grave robber. While the thief was trying to cut off her finger to retrieve a ring, She awoke. She would go on to give birth to 2 sons.

-One man would document 149 cases of premature burials during the 17th Century.

Someone says, "How can a person be buried alive after they've been embalmed?"

The fact is, "embalming", the science which temporarily preserves human remains to forstall decomposition and to make the body suitable for public display at a funeral was not widely used until the 20th Century.

The 3 goals of Embalming
Sanitization, preservation and presentation.

3 goals of a lost person.

Although Embalming (the removal of the blood from the body/corpse and replacing it with Embalming fluid) was practiced thousands of years ago, It was not widely practicced throughout the Western World until the 20th Century.

It was practiced in Ancient Egypt to preserve the dead bodies.

Genesis 50:1-3
(1) And Joseph fell upon his fathes face, and wept upon him, and kissed him,
(2) And Joseph commanded his servants the PHYSICIANS to EMBALM his father: and the PHYSICIANS EMBALMED ISRAEL,

Very noteworthy 3 words.
PHYSICIANS EMBALMED ISRAEL!

Embalming is not a job of a doctor. Sometimes spiritual physicians (preachers) only make dead people presentable (look like their alive, saved).

(3) And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are EMBALMED: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days.

Joseph was EMBALMED by the Egyptians.
Genesis 50:26
So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they EMBALMED him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

Embalming was an Egyptian practice.

Enter King Tut
Now when I die,
Now don't think I'm a nut,
Don't want no fancy funeral,
Just one like ole King Tut!

Embalming continued:

Embalming is necessary for public viewing and/or long term (more than 24 hours) funeral "home" stay.

Embalming is banned or discouraged by Eastern Orthodox Christiandom.

-Hindus discourage Embalming.
-Jews primarily forbid Embalming.
-Muslims who bury upon the same day forbid embalming.

Actually, Embalming the "corpse" GUARENTEES a person can't be buried alive accidentally.

When a person is Embalmed, the blood is removed.
According to the Bible:
Leviticus 17:11
For the life of the flesh is in the BLOOD:...

Embalming would become more widely used in America during the Civil War to keep the bodies of fallen soldiers/loved ones preserved for burial, Which sometimes took weeks before the body would reach home.

The Embalmer is the last person to check for life before burial.

The dead back to life, continued:

According to the Bible, this is a picture of salvation.

Ephesians 2:1
And you hath he quickened, who WERE DEAD in trespasses and sins.

In the 1850's, a little girl visiting South Carolina died of Diphtheria. She was buried in a local family's mausoleum for quick burial as people were concerned the disease would spread. When the mausoleum was opened during the Civil War some 15 years later to bury a fallen soldier, the tiny remains of the little girl was found behind the door.

2 men, a Doctor who signed the death certificate and a Major who authorized the burial of a woman were both found guilty of manslaughter after it was discovered that the woman had revived and had torn her clothing to pieces and had broken her limbs in an attempt to free herself from the tomb.

1993
One man might as well be dead.
Declared deceased after a traffic accident in South Africa, he spent 2 days in a metal box in a mortuary before his cries alerted workers.
His fiance, who was also injured in the crash, refused to see him, convinced he was a zombie, returned from the dead to haunt her.

The dead back to life:

1994
An 86 year old woman spent 90 minutes in a "body bag" in the morgue before someone noticed the bag was "breathing".

-One man who was in charge of exhuming an entire graveyard for relocation estimated that 2% of the dead that were buried in that particular graveyard were buried ALIVE.

-In 1984, a post-mortem examination was being conducted in the mortuary of New York, when the Pathologist made the first cut, the "corpse" leaped up and grapped him by the throat. The Pathologist died of shock.

-One reverand Schwartz was in his coffin, when his favorite hymn was being played for his funeral. He was heard by the congregation singing his favorite hymn from inside the coffin. He would earlier lay in his coffin for 2 days while mourners filed pass him.

-One professor at an University received a sack with the body of a hanged criminal to be used for dissection. The body was dumped at his house while the professor was asleep. During the night the professor was awakened by the figure of a naked and shivering man. The professor decided to help the man escape further punishment. Some years later he encountered the man on the street, a wealthy merchant with a wife and 2 children.

Jesus Christ gives people life, sets them FREE, and gives them something worth living for.

The WAKE
Before Funeral Homes and Embalming, family members would sit with the dead, usually in the home of the deceased all night in case they weren't actually dead, but just SLEEPING, hense the expression WAKE!

1 Thessalonians 5:9-10
(9) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
(10) Who died for us, that, whether WE WAKE OR SLEEP, we should live together with him.

Ephesians 5:14
Wherefore he saith, AWAKE thou that sleepest, and ARISE FROM THE DEAD, and Christ shall give thee light.

One day all those who are saved will AWAKE and rise from the dead.
