I grew up going to a denominational church that teaches that the dead are alive, and that they watch over us and take care of us. As a child, I was afraid of this teaching; I didn’t like to get up during the night because I was afraid that I would find a dead person somewhere in the house watching over me. As I got older, it made me mad to think that those dead people could come in and out of my life anytime they wanted without respect for my privacy.
When I got in the Word in The Way Ministry and was taught the accuracy of God’s Word, I learned that the dead are dead, that they are not watching over me, taking care of me. I learned scriptures like:
For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
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.
After I was taught this truth in God’s Word and continued to grow in my understanding of it, I was no longer afraid to get up in the middle of the night. I knew that the dead are dead and that I could speak in tongues anytime, including at night, and talk with my heavenly Father, God. That gave me great peace and comfort.
This is one of the many things God has done for me because of the Word of God I have learned in The Way Ministry.
