There are two kinds of death—the death of the body, 
and the death of the spirit.

【Scripture】 Matthew 27:50, 27:53
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. 
They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city 
and appeared to many people.  
John 5:25 
I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God 
and those who hear will live. 
James 2:26 
As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.  
1 John 3:15
Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him. 


Hallelujah! May the blessings of the eternal love of God, the peace of the Holy Son, 
the fiery love of the Holy Spirit, and the inspiration, movement, and working of the Word fill you in abundance. 

When it comes to a person’s death, people only know one kind[of death] and treat it as such. 
This is because they only see the body.  
God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son consider a person’s death to be two kinds,
and when looking at it in greater detail, They consider death as having four kinds. 
When looking at a person’s death, first, there is the ‘death of the body,’ 
and second, there is the ‘death of the spirit.’ 
For today’s scripture, we also read the verses about the death of the body and the death of the spirit.  
-Matthew 27:50 
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
This passage is about ‘Jesus’ physical death.’ 
-Matthew 27:53
They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city 
and appeared to many people.
This passage is about ‘Jesus’ spiritual resurrection.’ Jesus died in the body but his spirit was alive. 
-John 5:25
Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God 
and those who hear will live.
This passage is about the resurrection of the body and of the spirit 
of those who believe in the Messiah and follow. 
-James 2:26 
As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
This passage is about the death of those who do not take action. 
-1 John 3:15
Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, 
and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
This passage is about the death of those who hate their brothers and sisters. 

There are several kinds when it comes to the ‘death of the body.’
First, a person’s body is completely dead forever when his breath is completely cut off, 
and his body is dead as a result.
Second, a person whose body is alive but cannot function to take action 
is said to be ‘dead’ because he cannot take action. 
In other words, this is called ‘the death of actions.’ If you don’t take action, you are said to be ‘dead.’ 
Third, a person whose body is alive yet does not know what he should know 
is said to be ‘dead’ because he will suffer harm due to his ignorance. 
A person who does not know the Messiah who will save them is ‘dead,’ 
and a person who does not know those who deceive them, about swindlers, and about the wicked 
is also ‘dead.’ 
A person who knows what he should know and takes action is ‘living.’ 
If the body does not breathe and it completely dies, 
then it ends as one thing, which is the death of the body. 
There are ‘hundreds’ of events through which you can die in the course of your everyday life. 
When there is a fire, if you don’t know [where] the exit is, 
then you will die even though you could have lived. 
In this way, when you live in the course of your everyday life, or live [your life] of faith, 
if you don’t know, you won’t be able to take action; therefore, you are ‘dead.’ 
You have to know. You have to realize. 
If you don’t know, you will be treated like a ‘dead person.’
Even if the body is alive, if it cannot function properly, the ‘person is dead.’ 
If they take action and function again, they become a ‘living person.’
A person who doesn’t know is a ‘dead person’ even if their body is alive. 
If they come to know properly, they will become a ‘living person.’
A person who stays in the old time period even though the new time period has come 
is a ‘dead person.’ 
If they come to the new time period, they will become a ‘living person.’
A person who does not repent of their sins is a ‘dead person’ even if their body is alive. 
If they repent and become restored, they will become a ‘living person.’
However, if the body completely stops breathing, it can never live again.
In the same way, there is a complete death for the ‘spirit’ too.
That is, if the spirit is completely judged by God, receives the death sentence, 
and goes to the domain of death, it becomes a ‘completely dead spirit.’
At that time, the spirit can never come out of the domain of death for eternity.
Therefore, you should not let your spirit die completely.
Even when the spirit is not completely dead, there are times when it is treated as dead.
If a spirit or soul acts outside God’s domain of life, it is considered dead. 
If a person slanders God’s history and the Lord and acts in unity with Satan, 
[their spirit] is considered dead.

If you don’t know, you are dead in that area. 
Therefore, you have to learn all day and all night, take action with knowledge, 
and become a ‘living person!’
There are people whose spirits are ‘dead in the domain of death 
even though their bodies look perfectly fine. 
They are alive in the body, but their words, thoughts, and deeds are in the domain of death.
You really have to learn and know what is dead. 
Only then will you not live in a dead state.
-Those who don’t believe in God and the Messiah are ‘dead people.’
-Those who believe in God and the Messiah but don’t keep the Word 
are ‘dead’ even though they are said to be alive.
-Those who indulge in the opposite sex, the same sex, or worldly love and who cross over the line 
are ‘dead’ even though they are said to be alive.
-Those who drink or smoke are drinking and smoking in front of God, so they are also ‘dead people.’
Those who don’t give thanks even though they have things to thank God and the Lord for are ‘dead people.’ 
-Those who have left their position of mission are ‘dead people.’
-Those who don’t do their work properly are ‘dead people.’
You can’t tell if you simply look, 
so I hope that you will take action after listening to the Lord’s Word, 
take action while praying, and take action while purposefully studying spiritual death.
If you know and take action, you will do ‘living deeds’ and be a ‘living person.’
A dead person is ‘someone who is disconnected from God and the Lord.’
If they reconnect themselves, they will become a ‘living person.’
However, if their thoughts, perspective, deeds, and body completely cross over to the evil side, 
their spirit will become completely dead.
So that you will not become completely dead, 
I hope that you will live in the Lord whether you are weak or strong, 
and live in the Lord whether you can do well or not!

I bless all of you to take care of your problems of sin completely,
to take action within God, the Holy Spirit, and the Lord,
to know the meaning and value of the Lord correctly, and rise and shine as living people!
