The Spiritual Origin of the Prophecies
In my book Os mortos não morrem [The Dead Do Not Die], I transcribe notable studies and very interesting accounts about the reality of life after the phenomenon called death . . . However, it is necessary to reflect on some of the moral effects of this spiritual knowledge that Jesus, the Divine Resurrected, offers us so that we can lead a better life. After all, when we are not properly prepared, death comes as a big scare. That explains my concern in keeping a dialogue with all those who honor me by reading this article and in introducing you to so many facts which have for millennia evidenced the survival of the Soul and the Spiritual Nature of this phenomenon.
The late Proclaimer of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit, Alziro Zarur (1914-1979), asserted that “there is no death at any point in the Universe.”
Would anyone like to vanish, to be separated from their loved ones forever? I do not think so!
In the second volume of the literary series “The Apocalypse of Jesus for the Simple-Hearted,”1 titled As Profecias sem Mistério [The Prophecies Without Mystery] (1998), I reemphasized: The dead do not die! not even our atheistic-materialistic Brothers and Sisters. One cannot analyze the Word of the Creator by belittling any of His creatures, spiritual ones included.
Furthermore, where do the warnings on this serious period the Earth is going through come from? From nowhere else but the Spiritual World, where the Invisible Beings dwell, as revealed by the Apocalypse of the Divine Prophet, Jesus, in the introductory verses of chapter one: “The Revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (The Apocalypse 1:1-2)
What would you say, dear readers, are the Angels (so many times mentioned in the Holy Bible) if not Souls? It is crucial to know where we came from, what we are doing here, and where we will go after the unavoidable phenomenon of death.
