Shalom! My name is Adam Pastor

Welcome to ADONI MESSIAH which means
"My Lord Messiah" -
a fitting epithet to who Jesus (or Yeshua) is!

Here, I attempt to present the Apostolic Truths according to the Scriptures, that there is
One GOD, the Father, namely, YAHWEH,
and One Lord, GOD's only begotten Son,
Yeshua the Messiah.

And that one day YAHWEH will send His Son back to Earth to inaugurate the Everlasting Kingdom of GOD

Resurrection Check: Are You Clear about the Christian Goal?

Resurrection in the Bible refers to the coming back to life of a person who has died. I am referring to the literal resurrection here. Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God (Luke 1:35) and Messiah was put to death by hostile unbelieving Jews and Romans. God, the Creator, restored him to life three days later, early on a Sunday morning. Proof of this is from witnesses “who ate and drank with him after he came back from death” (Acts 10:41).
A believer’s great objective is to be resurrected from death when Jesus returns to the earth.
1 Corinthians 15:23, part of Paul’s impassioned sermon against some “believers” who astonishingly were losing faith in resurrection, says: “Christ the firstfruits [was resurrected], then those who belong to Christ will be resurrected at his Second Coming” (Parousia). This will be the “resurrection of the just” (Luke 16:16). It was predicted as the awakening from the sleep of death of those now sleeping in the dust of the earth (Dan. 12:2).
The resurrection of the faithful of all the ages will happen at the 7th or last trumpet (1 Cor. 15:52). “The time will come for the rewarding of the dead” (Rev 11:15-18).
This is the same marvelous event as the coming to life of “those who had been beheaded…They came to life and began to reign as kings with the Messiah for a thousand years” (Rev. 20:4). That will be the time when the Devil who is currently deceiving the whole world (Rev. 12:9; 1 John 5:19) will be imprisoned “so that he can deceive the world no longer” (Rev. 20:3). Never ever lose sight of the Christian objective! Never ever substitute for it a vague non-biblical transportation to heaven at death!
Why do you want to “go to heaven” when Jesus, who is coming back to the earth, won’t be there?!
This would be as nonsensical as thinking that in a soccer match the objective is to kick the ball as high as you can in the air, rather than into the goal in front of you.
