It Is Appointed  for Men  to Die Once

There are a number  of religions  claiming reincarnation  of different sorts.     Reincarnation is a belief  saying that when one dies  in this life,  they will be born  into another life.     Some religions even claim reincarnations  from insect  and animal lives,  progressing into a good human life.     Others only claim reincarnation  from one human life  to another.     So,  they believe  that even insects  and animals  have souls.     But,  Genesis chapter 1 tells us  that God “spoke”  all animals  into existence.     His mere word  had the power  to create  all other things  in creation.

But, the creation  of man  was different.     Genesis 2:7 says,

Then the LORD God  formed man  of dust  from the ground,  and breathed  into his nostrils  the breath  of life;  and man became  a living being.

That’s saying man has a soul.     Then,  Hebrews 9:27  tells us,

It is appointed  for men  to die once  and after this  comes judgment.

This is our one-and-only life.     We don’t get  another chance  to straighten out.     When we die,  we face  “judgment”.

Prove it.

None of the other religions  have valid historical  and archaeological evidence  for the validity  of their beliefs.     But,  the Bible can prove  the reliability  of God’s truths.     Throughout the Old Testament,  many prophecies  were made regarding a Savior,  including being born in Bethlehem  of a virgin;  suffering;  being beaten and spit upon;  dying on a cross;  being pierced  with a sword,  being resurrected,  etc.,  etc.,  etc.

Because  so many prophecies  were fulfilled  in the one man,  Jesus Christ,  we have more than a hint  that God’s word  in the Bible  is true and trustworthy.     It is impossible  for so many prophecies  to be fulfilled  in the life  of one man.     But,  with God  it is possible.

As the wise  realize  this is our only chance  to put our trust  in the LORD,  our Savior,  we gladly say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  let us grow  in Your grace.”

Love,
