Human Souls Are Purged But Not in Purgatory


II TIMOTHY 3:16 (THE AMERICAN STANDARD VERSION)

Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness.

All Scriptures inspired of God are profitable for:

•        Teaching

•        Reproof

•        Correction

•        Instruction

These are the main concerns of every Scripture inspired of God! Historical wise, Scriptures teach, reprove, correct and instruct in righteousness.

The long history of the Israelites as a people teaches every generation thereafter with correction, reproof and instruction.

I CORINTHIANS 10:6, 11

6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 

Prophetic wise, all Scriptures inspired of God, convey the same thoughts and intent.

DEUTERONOMY 28:47-48

47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. 

JEREMIAH 25:11

And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.  

All matters of faith must be learned from the inspired Scriptures, no more, no less! 

I CORINTHIANS 4:6 (REVISED STANDARD VERSION)

I have applied all this to myself and Apol’los for your benefit, brethren, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another. 

“…that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written…”

Why not go beyond?

Because they were written by the commandment of the Lord.

I CORINTHIANS 14:37

If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. 

REVELATION 21:5

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 

Any article or matter of faith not written in the Scriptures should not be accepted by a prudent servant of God.

GALATIANS 1:8

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 

Beliefs not written in the Scriptures come from satan!

II CORINTHIANS 11:3-4, 13-15

3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 

Teachings coming from satan through his ministers are camouflaged to make it appear as though they were of God!

Alleging that the doctrine of purgatory is in the Latin Bible is a clear manifestation of doctrinal bankruptcy! It’s clear that it is not in the Hebrew and Greek Bible, the original languages used in the writing of the sacred Scriptures! And to claim that the Bible is a book owned by the Catholic Church, is another blatant stupid claim. The official name of the Catholic Church only formulated in the late 19th century is, “The Holy Roman Catholic Apostolic Church”.

Why is the original Bible not written in the language of Rome but instead in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic which were never the official language of the Roman Catholic Church? The answer is inevitable: the Bible is not a book owned and written by Roman Catholics! It will be a pity to all Bible-believing people if Roman Catholics were the ones who wrote it!

Sins are purged not in the afterlife but here on earth!

The word used by Paul in his writing to the Hebrews, in the Greek Scriptures is καθαρισμός. 

HEBREWS 1:3

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

καθαρισμός

katharismos (kath-ar-is-mos’)

From G2511; a washing off, that is, (ceremonially) ablution, (morally) expiation: – cleansing, + purge, purification, (-fying).

The Hebrew synonym (because he was writing to the Hebrews) is כּפר

kâphar (kaw-far’)

A primitive root; to cover (specifically with bitumen); figuratively to expiate or condone, to placate or cancel: – appease, make (an) atonement, cleanse, disannul, forgive, be merciful, pacify, pardon, to pitch, purge (away), put off, (make) reconcile (-liation).

* (Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries, Dictionaries of Hebrew and Greek Words taken from Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance by James Strong, S.T.D., LL.D., 1890.) 

Whether in Hebrew or in Greek, the phrase, purge our sins, translated in Latin as “purgationem peccatorum” means an act of atonement, the cleansing or ablution of sins, not a place which the Catholics were made to believe as “purgatory”.

HEBREWS 1:3 

 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 

Before sitting on the right hand of the Majesty on High, “when He had by himself purged our sins,”means, that the purging was done while He was still on earth.

The earth is our home in this age, and the world to come will be our home in eternity.

Our home in this present age is:

THE ACTS 17:26

 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 

Our home in eternity will be:

JOHN 14:1-3 

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 

2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 

REVELATION 21:1-2 

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 

Our earth or our home on this present age is the right place for the purging of our sins. This is the very reason why He came to this earth!

MATTHEW 1:21 

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 

How did He purge the sins of His people? By offering His body as a ransom for our sins.

HEBREWS 10:12 

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; 

HEBREWS 10:10 

 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 

Being baptized as the Lord Jesus commanded is the way for us to be covered by the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus.

THE ACTS 2:38 

 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 

THE ROMANS 6:4, 6 

4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 

6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 

The purging of our sins must be done in this life on earth for us to be prepared to enter the abode of God and the Lord Jesus.

ECCLESIASTES 9:10 

 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. 

REVELATION 21:22, 27 

22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 

27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. 

Souls of God’s servants rest in God’s domain and are not being purged in purgatory!

REVELATION 6:9-11 

9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 

11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. 

Will there be a stopover in purgatory? NONE! Why? Because there is no purgatory!

  3. Better is the garlic than the purgatory because garlic can be found in the Bible while the other is not.

    Numbers 11:5
    We remember the fish we ate in Egypt. That fish cost us nothing. We also had good vegetables like cucumbers, melons, chives, onions, and garlic.

    • Hi Laurice,

      Read Ezekiel 18:4 – it says the soul that is sinning, it itself will die.

      The Bible does not teach immortality of the soul. Cause if the soul continously leave after death, it will contradict the RESSURECTION that the Bible teaches. Please read John 5:28, 29.

      And please open your mind into what really the Bible teach. Do not limit the things on what you read and hear from religious leaders, including the one from this site Mr. ES.

      ES does not recognize the NAME of God. He is teaching that the TITLE God or Lord is the actual name of God. If you are the author of a famous book and the printer deliberately delete or ommit your name and instead replace it with a title AUTHOR, what will you feel? And this is what ES is doing. Instead of using the proper name of God, Yahweh or Jehovah, he is trying to misguide the honest hearted people from using the proper nam of God.

      So seek God’s help thru prayer and He will guide you to the truth that can be found from the God’s work the Bible.

      • @Gerald

        Correct!!!

        Exactly what do you think God will do to those people who had replaced the name LORD or FATHER from the original scripture into Yahweh or Jehovah 400 hundreds years or more after the death of the apostles.

        Isaiah 63:16

        16 For you are our Father,
        though Abraham does not know us,
        and Israel does not acknowledge us;
        you, O LORD, are our Father,
        our Redeemer from of old is your name.

  4. TO GO BE THE GLORY! EVEN IF I DIDN’T READ ALL OF THEM, BECAUSE I TRUST IN WHAT BRO. ELI SAID OF WHAT IS ALSO WRITTEN IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES…IM SO BLESSED I HEARD BROTHER ELI’S PREACHING!

    • You are very right Miss Chona, they created the place and it so sad, many had been deceived, poor members believing that sins of their dead love ones will be purged on purgatory by prayers and mass offering. Presto! It is again about money! Members have to pay for mass and prayers for the dead. The reason why All Souls’ day is celebrated by them.

      Well, for us, thanks be to God for we are not blind anymore on this sheep-coated deceits of Catholic church.

      Fellow Filipinos, please wake up!
