Catholics Saints are Catholics who died and are said to be in afterworld now. There are thousands acknowledged Saints and but a few are said to be anonymous. And in the Roman Catholic Church chronicle of events Cheap Cordrea Tankersley Jersey , there are those who were already pronounced Saints but then they were downgraded by latter Popes as not-Saints.
The Catholic Church conform feasts for the Saints. In the Philippines, celebration of the feasts for the Saints became awesome tourists enticement. few of these are the Sinulog in Cebu, Ati-atihan in Aklan, Pintados in Tacloban City and the feast of the Black Nazarene in Manila City.
Besides the feasts offered to the Saints, the Catholic Church also keep the “All Saints Day” on November 1. This is to commemorate all the Saints in place where god lives. And by reason of they are now in heaven, the Saints can aid the existent as the person who negotiates agreement of men to God for the grace of their sins and for the blessings of God for them.
Among the Saints in place where god lives Cheap Charles Harris Jersey , the most popular one is Mary, the mother of Christ. Mary has a lot titles and each of the titles has a corresponding feasts.
But as a god-fearing man, we should check this advice of the Roman Catholic Church before practicing them whether it is in harmony to the instructions of God recorded in the Authoritative book especially concerning the true Saints. And we will do the inquiry through this article.
So, to with, we will question the Authoritative book: When man dies will he immediately go to heaven or hell or any place?
The answer to this issue can be read at the book of Psalms which says:
5 Adrift among the passed away,
Like the slain who lie in the grave Cheap Xavien Howard Jersey ,
Whom You remember no more,
And who are cut off from Your hand. (Psalms 88:5, NKJV)
Compatible to the verse we quoted, the departed lies in grave. But until when will the departed stay in grave?
The Book of Job replied:
10 But man dies and is laid away;
Indeed he breathes his last
And where is he?
12 So man lies down and does not rise.
Till the heavens are no more,
They will not awake
Nor be roused from their sleep. (Job 14:10,12 Cheap Laremy Tunsil Jersey , ibid.)
It says that the gone stay in grave and will be roused from their sleep till the place where god livess will disappear. When will be the time of the passing of the place where god livess of which it is also the time when the dead in the grave will be roused?
Apostle Peter replyed it through his book, II Peter in verse 3:10:
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the afterworlds will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. (II Peter 3:10, ibid.)
The time when the afterworlds will disappear or will pass will be on the day of the Lord. And everybody knows that the Day of the Lord is the day of judgment or the second coming of Christ.
In other words, if man dies Cheap Raekwon McMillan Jersey , he will not eventually go to afterworld or hell. He will stay in his grave until the second coming of Christ.
But what about the true Saints. Will they at once go to afterworld for the reason that they are already considered as Saint by God?
To reply the question, let’s take David as the example for the reason that we all get acquainted that David is really a Saint or Holy as testified by the book of Psalms:
2 Preserve my life, for I am holy;
You are my God;
Save Your servant who trusts in You! (Psalms 86:2, ibid.)
So, since David is holy or a saint, is he already in afterworld?
The Book of Acts of the Apostles has this answer:
29 “Men and brethren Cheap Kenny Stills Jersey , let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both expired and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.34 “For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself:
‘ The LORD said to my Lord,
” Sit at My right hand, (Acts 2:29 Cheap Cameron Wake Jersey , 34, ibid.)
The Authoritative book clearly teaches that David died and was buried and reains in grave until now. So, David never ascended to heaven.
So, if David is still in earth or in his grave, so it is also true to all the Catholic Saints. And since the Catholic Saints are still in their grave, so it is impossible for them to hear the prayers of the existent and they could not help the alive to be mediated to God.
It is even clarified by the Book of Ecclesiastes that dead know nothing and they could not do anything for the breathing.
5 For the breathing know that they will die;
But the expired get acquainted nothing Cheap Reshad Jones Jersey ,
And they have no more reward,
For the memory of them is forgotten.
6 Also their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished;
Nevermore will they have a share
In anything done under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, ibid.)
In other words, it is not working to recite to the Catholic Saints. We will just be wasting our time Cheap Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , efforts and money to the saints that can’t help us. Let’s stop this foolishness. Let’s wake up!
