Jesus resurrection, an event around 2000 years ago, gives hope to people around the world  to change for a better and challenging life. They also want to resurrect their lives from the deadly trap of the evil. Some Christians are living dead! Living in the midst of corruptions in our wicked world! They are the modern Pharisees; religious outside, but rotten inside. But Jesus says, “I am the resurrection; whoever believes in me, though he dies, shall live.”- John

packed lunch and soft drinks and distributed to everyone who attended the celebration. Thus, all the people were filled with joy.

Father Edeh has done this activity every Easter Sunday celebration of the year.  Like Mother Theresa did in the streets of Mumbai and Calcutta, he lifts and kindles the hearts of our poor brothers and sisters in Nigeria, Africa and in the process strengthens their faiths in our Lord Jesus. It’s a wonderful job. He has done what our Lord has commanded to us. Jesus says” What you have done to the least of your brothers, you have done it unto me.”He has done it.

Father Edeh is the director and Father Founder of the Catholic Prayer Ministry of the Holy Spirit of the Eucharistic Adoration Elele, Nigeria. Like most famous religious leader, he celebrates Easter Sunday on charitable works.

Departed Souls Await Judgment

                                                 By Vic Odarve

After death life continuous! Spirit of the souls, the immaterial part of a man, travels to a temporary place where souls await the final judgment.

But there was a man named Enoch, who walked with God heavenward so that he did not see death. (Heb 11:5). Being a righteous man, God gave him a privilege like a tourist. He toured this soul dwelling place with the angel Raphael as a guide. The place was already inhabited; the spirit of the soul of Abel was there.

As described by Enoch, the dwelling place of departed souls consisted of four hollow places; deep and wide and very smooth

and dark to look at. Here are the divisions, as follows;

  • The first one was for the righteous that died at the hands of the sinners. This division has a bright spring of water.
  • The second was for the saints. Such has been made for the spirits of men who were not righteous, but sinners, who were complete in transgression, and of the transgressors they shall be companions: but their spirits shall not be slain in the

  • The third was for sinners who were not punished while living on earth. Here their spirits shall be set apart in this great pain till the great Day of Judgment and punishment and torment of those who curse forever and retribution for their spirits. There He shall bind them forever.
  • The fourth was for sinners who were partially punished while on earth. And such a division has been made for the spirits of those who make their suit, who make disclosures concerning their destruction when they were slain in the

    days of the sinners.

The picture is clear. God made four compartments for the departed souls. Even Abraham was seen there in the righteous compartments with Lazarus! When the rich man died and was in hell where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham and Lazarus afar off and asked help. Abraham replied: Between your place and ours a great division/chasm has been fixed so that no one can cross over from here to you or from your side to us. Luke 16:26

 Everybody is bound to leave his earthly suit and every soul returns to where it belongs. One thing is certain: somebody owns our souls and identifies the ones that are doomed for destruction.

“For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son-both alike, belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.” Ezek 18:4 NIV

The choice to which compartment you prepare is yours and is irrevocable when the dust of all the cities incarnadines the sunsets of the world.
