How much do you know your Bible?
Do you know that it holds a lot of secrets.
I call them secrets because only a few know them.
In fact, the secrets I’m about to tell you are contrary to popular Christian beliefs!
You might even find most of them not being taught in mainstream Christianity.
You are blessed to have come across this blog.
Only a few people are able to stumble upon the truth.
Once you know the secrets hidden in your Bible, you will never see Christianity the same way again.
What are these secrets?
Read on to learn more!
Secret no. 1: No one has ascended to heaven
Acts 2:29, 34 tells us:
“Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day… David did not ascend into the heavens.”
If there’s anyone who should be in heaven, it should be David.
Yet, the Bible tells us that he has not ascended into heaven.
John 5:28-29 tells us that the dead are in their graves when Yahshua will return:
“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are IN THE GRAVES shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:28-29).
Finally, Yahshua (Jesus Christ) tells us this in John 3:13:
“No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, The Son of Man.”
Secret no. 2: There is no immortal soul
The Bible is clear that souls will die:
“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4, 20).
“The soul that sinneth, it shall DIE. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
Secret no. 3: The Bible prohibits the making of graven image and using them in worship
While the biggest church group of the “Christian” world promotes the use of statues in their worship, the Bible strongly condemns it.
We read in Exodus 20:4:
You shall NOT make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.
Secret no. 4: Jesus Christ (Yahshua) didn’t have long hair
If you travel back in time, Jews in Christ’s day didn’t have long hair.
Christ is a plain-looking man who had the same features as his fellow Jews at that time.
Later, he inspired Paul to write these words:
Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him (I Corinthians 11:14)?
Secret no. 5: The Sabbath Day is on the seventh day
Exodus 20:8-9 tells us:
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God.
The Bible is clear that the Sabbath isn’t on the first day, but on the SEVENTH day. If you look at your calendar today, which one is the seventh day?
The answer is obvious.
However, a lot of people think it is Sunday.
