Question: Can we truly know God without realizing that Jesus Christ literally bore our sins on the cross? Also, is the time for repentance over when you die physically?
Answer: Christ stated (in sympathy with Old Testament writers) that “the first shall be last, and the last first,” and in this he meant that the false self — world-born personality — must pass (old skins) before the Holy Spirit (new wine) may enter and return real order to self… the arrival or awakening which is the recovery of relationship with God. Physical death brings an end to nothing other then the particular vehicle — with its tendencies — that one is given to learn the truth of his life. And according to virtually every Scripture ever written, the judgment that follows our passing is one in which we are permitted to realize what we have and have not done to draw closer to the Living Light — a lesson in love that cannot be ignored.
