All Soul’s Day – The Rich Man and Lazarus

I noticed in my journal that today is All Soul’s Day.  I wasn’t sure what that was, so I googled it.  It is a day that others pray for the dead.  I am not sure why they pray for the dead because the Bible clearly says that once you die, you have made your choice. You cannot change where you are after you die and someone else cannot change it either.

I think of “The rich man and Lazarus” in the Bible. Luke 16:19-31  KJV

19: There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

20: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21: And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22: And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24: And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25: But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and like wise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou are tormented.

26: And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27: Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

28: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29: Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30: And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31: And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Are you persuaded?

Jesus arose from the dead.  Today is the day of Salvation and to protect your soul from where the rich man ended up.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
