We pray for the family and friends of the man that lost his life. I am fairly certain he didn't know this was going to be his last day of his life DO YOU?? We had an 18 year old son that died in a very “UNUSUAL WAY”. The day he died he was all excited about getting to his cross country running class to test out his new shoes he was given free the night before. See NEWS VIDEO COVERAGE at http://RacetoHeaven.com . Our son was an AP calculus student in high school, cross country runner that ran 40 plus miles a week since the age of 8. When he died an autopsy was done and no drugs or alcohol were in his system.
Brrrrrr

The Bible teaches that Death is the enemy of mankind, Adam and Eve brought sin and death into this world, to be inherited by everyone. Romans 5:12

Everyone who has died and is under this Earth in their graves, no matter where they are laid to rest, will be resurrected back to life in God's new world or Paradise soon to be here. John 5:28,29

Before Jesus redeemed all mankind from sin and death, there was no hope for mankind that died, but through the ransom sacrifice of Jesus all men will have the opportunity to inherit everlasting life in Paradise, what Adam lost for his children, after they are resurrected back to life in God's new world.
John 6:40

The Church doctrine that your loved ones are in heaven with Jesus is not true, your loved ones are sleeping in their grave, they have been laid to rest until the Resurrection day starts in God's new world.
Ecclesiastes 9:5

This is a terrible tragedy for all of the brotherhood, and especially for those involved. Today's Watchtower lesson is a great encouragement for anyone undergoing adversities of any sort. Please view it at www.jw.org .
My prayers are with God's people dealing with loss and tribulation. It will all end soon.

That's not true.

These people are with Jesus AFTER he died.

1 Thess 4:14 [nwt]
For if our faith is that Jesus died and rose again,so,too,those who have fallen asleep [IN DEATH] through Jesus God WILL BRING WITH HIM.

So if their faith was in Jesus death,which means this was AFTER his resurrection and they are WITH HIM and he is going to bring them WITH HIM,they are in heaven.

Look at where Jesus is at now.

Acts 1:9-11 [nkjv]
9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,

11 who also said,“Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

According to God's word,they are in heaven.

There is a reason why Ecclesiastes is in the OLD testament,not the new.

Btw,it would not hurt to read the whole book in its context.

This was all over the local news when it happened.
Very stupid accident and totally avoidable.
I will admit that Miami International can be confusing but, an 8ft clearance? I would have paused with my F250. This guy was supposed to be a professional bus driver.
They were on their way to the West Palm Beach Christian convention center.
A friend of mine got the call and had to relay the information to the chairman.
Sucks.

What I have posted is the truth according to the book of Revelation,
All the dead will be released from their graves and restored to life in Paradise, that is when this world will be restored to a paradise condition, within the thousand years judgement day.
Revelation 20:13

Believe whatever you want, whatever makes you happy with your understanding of Scripture, according to your interpretation, just as the Churches of Christendom and independant ministers teach people who believe their lies.

Jehovah's witnesses will preach God's word the Bible as Jesus and the apostles taught, according as the holy spirit is guiding and directing the united subjects of our reigning King in heaven, Jesus Christ.

The Bible says there is only one Truth, and since you do not believe what Almighty God Jehovah wants preached today, you do not have it.
Anyone who is outside the spiritual ark of protection when the end of this unrighteous world starts, will not survive the end of this world.
Proverbs 2:21,22

Jehovah's witnesses are spending billions of hours in this warning preaching work, the same preaching work Noah did before the end of that unrighteous world, and Jesus gave that account for the Jews who faced the end of that unrighteous Jewish nation, but he also applied it to the end of this world, and all the nations. Matthew 24

Numerous JW's are still reported missing after UFO sightings in KY, IN and IL recently. These missing souls are reportedly abducted for a reprogramming secession on the moon. Our thoughts go out to them as well. This month SCIENTOLOGIST are offering a cult swap program for select JW's so a cross cultural learning experience of different cults can be shared.

No matter if they were JW's or anything else, the whole thing is a tragedy and devastating for those involved and their families.

that is someones dad, brother, uncle, son or friend and its never the time to loose anyone so suddenly. hopefully he is in a better place regardless of any affiliation. if he was on a journey exercising his beliefs then all should respect that and not use the situation as a platform to boaster their position.

Religion teaches that the dead are in heaven, they also teach that you can help them and they can help you, the Bible says the dead are conscious of nothing at all. Ecclesiastes 9:5

The Bible and Jesus Christ taught the dead will be resurrected from the dead in the judgement day, the teaching that a person has an immortal soul is also from the Catholic religion, and all of Christendom teaches that false doctrine as fact. When a person dies, they are asleep in death, they were mortal human beings, an immortal person could not die, Jesus was a flesh and blood man and not immortal, Jesus died and was dead for parts of three days before he was resurrected a spirit.

This is true,but Revelations 20 is talking about the Millennium [ 1,000 year period ] which I believe is going to be after the Great Tribulation according to Daniel.

You were talking earlier about people dying today saying they "do not go to heaven after they die," and I showed you from scripture that they do.

1 Thess.4:14 [nwt]

For if our FAITH is that Jesus DIED and ROSE again,[That's the Christian Good News,compare with 1 Cor.15:1-4] so, too,THOSE who have fallen asleep [in DEATH] through Jesus God WILL BRING WITH HIM.

Read this scripture very carefully and tell me just what these people that died that are with Jesus now do to get there?

Please do not avoid this queston,it is very important that you see this.

jehovah is a fake, fabricated name invented by the Catholics.

And there is no "paradise earth"!

Paradise is a false doctrine of Satan's evil and wicked cult, the jehovah's witnesses who produce false prophecies, false doctrines, false scriptures and molested children!

The Bible is the only truth.
John 17:17
]
In a very short time mankind will see the prophecies concerning the end of this world as we know it, when the evidence is in a world wide state of recognition, it will be too late to turn to Almighty God Jehovah for your admitting Jehovah is the one and only God of the Bible. You are facing total extinction at Armageddon.
