I regret the passing of Dr. Roderick C. Meredith. I have been listening to him for over 20 years on radio and TV and have joined the Tomorrow’s World Magazine Bible studies, so I have come to know him and love him. To his family and many friends, be encouraged, we will see him again in the life to come. I will know him personally then.

I continue to learn each time I hear, see and read information from you—thank you. My understanding of God’s inspired word is increased by the methods that are utilized [in your materials] to explain the Bible. I just wish that many others would begin to watch and obtain these wonderful teachings and pass them on to others. Again, thanks to the wonderful staff of your organization.

I express my sincere thanks for your CDs. I am playing them over and over again to absorb the valuable information. I am struggling with eye impairment and can hardly see. That is why I appreciate the audio CDs so much.

Please continue my free subscription of Tomorrow’s World Magazine. It’s very interesting to read. I’ve learned a lot about world events through the eye of Bible prophecy, and about what is going on in our troubled world as we face unprecedented dangers and crises and the time of Jesus Christ’s return draws nearer. So, please continue my subscription, for I want to be one of those who follows our Savior’s instruction to “watch and pray” (Luke 21:36) as we approach the end of the age.
May I request also from your good office a free copy of your informative booklets The Holy Days: God’s Master Plan, Where Is God’s True Church Today? and Who or What Is the Antichrist?

In a recent TV programme you spoke about people who die not going directly to be with their Heavenly Father but sleeping until the resurrection. In Ecclesiastes 12 at the end of verse 5 we read, “Then man goes to his eternal home.” Also verse 7 says, “and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” Surely we are a Spirit rather than a Soul? In Matthew, we read about the transfiguration of Jesus where there appeared Moses and Elijah. I would appreciate your comments on these scriptures.

Note from the Editor: Thank you for your questions! The Bible says that there is a spirit in man, not that he is one (e.g., Job 32:8). And while our spirit does return to God upon our death, it does not represent a “conscious entity” of any sort, as Ecclesiastes itself makes plain, stating that “the dead know nothing” (Ecclesiastes 9:5)—an observation verified by many other passages. And Jesus clearly described the event in which Peter, James and John saw the future, glorified bodies of Moses and Elijah as a vision, and not as a current reality (Matthew 17:9). To learn more about the spirit in man, you may want to read our article “Mystery of the Mind” in the September-October 2010 Tomorrow’s World Magazine. It is available online at tomorrowsworld.org.
I find the changes in morality today disturbing. But as you say, the knowledge of a future world ruled by Christ, when peace will be the Law of the land, gives me comfort and faith in a very challenging society that is becoming more intolerant to Christian ideals.
