2 Kings 4:3137 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staff upon the face of the child; but there was neither voice, nor hearing. Wherefore he went again to meet him, and told him, saying, The child is not awaked. And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was dead, and laid upon his bed. He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD. And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm. Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. And he called Gehazi, and said, Call this Shunammite. So he called her. And when she was come in unto him, he said, Take up thy son. Then she went in, and fell at his feet, and bowed herself to the ground, and took up her son, and went out.
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Ecclesiastes 3:18-21 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Ezekiel 37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
Ezekiel 37:13-14 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
Matthew 9:18-25 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
Luk 8:49-56 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
Matthew 27:50-53 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
John 11:11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
John 11:12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
John 11:13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
1 Corinthians 15:50-56 I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
Luke 23:39-43 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Mark 5:35-42 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Revelation 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
Bible Verses given by Ray
1 Corinthians 15:50-56 (see above)
Revelation 20:4-14 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years. When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth - Gog and Magog - to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. The
y marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone's name was not found written in the
ook of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Rev 21:1-5 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
RAY's DECEASED FATHER
1806. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 30 November 2004 at 11:34 AM
While driving this morning, I was looking at the cars coming toward me on the opposite side of the street. For some reason I began to think of my deceased father Reymundo Sr., on how at times I used to see him driving toward me, when he was still alive. The more I thought about it, the more depressed I started to feel; maybe because he died in the month of December 1999. As I pondered this in my mind, I decided to ask the Lord how my dad was.
To my surprise the Lord responded, “Your dad is fine.”
I almost began to cry because I was so sad. So I asked the Lord once more, “Is my dad in heaven with You?
The Lord said, “He is fine, do not worry. He is fine.”
I wondered why the Lord did not say that my father was in heaven. The more this stayed on my mind, the more I felt led to share this occurrence with the Brothers and Sisters. When I got home I started to type it up when my computer locked up and crashed. I lost about two and a half hours trying to fix my computer without success, but after my fifth attempt, Eva said a short prayer and my computer began to reinstall the operating system. This goes to show us that prayer WORKS.
1430. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 9 December 1999 at 8:15 PM.
While praying at my father's bedside in the hospital minutes after he had just died, the Lord gave me this Word.
The Lord said to me, "Your father is a good man and he will be
in Heaven with Me, but there are many good men in South America also. I want
you to go South America and Anoint it. So saith it Jehovah. So saith it Jesus
Christ. So saith it the Holy Spirit. For many people are going to die in South
America and I WANT THAT GROUND ANOINTED! This is your Loving Father Jehovah,
Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit."
Susan note : The Lord did not say "He is in Heaven with Me", but "He will be in Heaven with Me".
1431. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 10 December 1999 at 7 PM.
I was leaving the bathroom and I had a strong sense of the presence of my father, Reymundo Sr., and I said, "How are you doing papa?"
And my father said, "Muy bien, muy bien" ("Very well, very well".).
RUTH (FROM BIBLE)
1087. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 27 July 1997 at 3:30 AM.
Then during the early morning hours, I was suddenly awaken. I was sleeping on my back with my hands at my side, and this incredible force bound my hands and paralyzed my body to the bed. All that ran through my mind was, "Lord - I am in trouble. Something has me frozen to the bed. HELP ME!!!" No matter how hard I tried to move my body, it would not move. What was so strange, I kept having this image of Daniel. When the Angel of the Lord appeared to him, and he fell down on his face in fear - kept running through my mind.
I felt a woman’s hands holding my two wrists. I also felt this peace. The whole room was filled with this incredible power. I still did not know if this presence was friend or foe. But I could feel the smallness of the two hands that were holding my wrists. And I could not see anyone.
So I asked, "Who is this?"
And a voice said with power and authority, "This is Ruth."
At first I did not know if it was a demonic force, or some Angel named, Ruth. I struggle at first for I was so startled. Then the Ruth of the Bible came to my mind or my spirit. I do not know which. Also, slowly I was able to raise both my hands, with these spiritual woman’s hands holding on to my wrists.
So I said to myself, "If this is Ruth I can say, I love Jesus, I love Jesus, I love Jesus."
So I kept praising the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, over and over. So with both my hands raised in the spirit, I began to wave them, and I kept praising, and moving, and waving them into the air, with the attached other hands. I could also feel this heat, or warmth come upon my body. Just as suddenly as they appeared they disappeared, and my hands fell back to the bed. This really scared me!
But all I can say, "I love you Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I give you all the praise and the honour, and the glory - Now and forever and ever. Amen."
1136. Prophecy given to Raymond Aguilera on 18 December 1997 at 1:30 PM.
Vision: The next image I saw was of a jet flying high and toward what looked like our sun or a very bright white light.
Then during this occurrence, I heard a Voice identify itself as Ruth. This reminded me of the Ruth Voice that spoke to me in the spirit in Israel. Ruth said, "Do not worry, I will be with you!"
Then the Lord said, "The songs of the dead. The songs of the dead. The songs of the dead."
And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast
will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man‘s brother
will I require the life of man.
Psalm 50:10-11 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
RAY's DOG & OTHER
504. Prophecy given to Raymond Aguilera on 21 July 1994 at 4:36 PM.
I know that your heart was broken because your little dog died.
But don't suffer for your little dog, because everything is in My Hands, the
Hands of your Father, the Hands of the Son, the Hands of the Holy Spirit.
1377. Prophecy given to Raymond Aguilera on 27 July 1999 at 11:56 PM. in Spanish.
It gives My Eyes tears to see the way people treat the animals that I made for them. It hurts My Heart. It hurts Me the way people treat their children. It hurts Me the way people treat their brothers and sisters.

Foot-And-Mouth Crisis Worsens

Foot-And-Mouth crisis worsens
By Ralph Gowling
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's fast spreading foot-and-mouth, outbreak threatens day-to-day life from children missing school to the cancellation of sports fixtures --- and may even delay a widely expected general election. Prime Minister Tony Blair stepped up efforts Tuesday to stamp out the devastating livestock disease, holding emergency talks with senior ministers and announcing draconian measures including fines of up to $7,215 to ensure people observe the 'no go' status imposed on large tracts of rural Britain. The scale of the week-long disaster was hitting home as the number of confirmed cases of foot-and-mouth disease leapt to 18 during the day from 12. They were also spread across the country.
The whole of Britain was having to come to terms with a crisis that could go on for weeks and possibly months -- while Europe remained on red alert in case the highly infectious disease spreads across the English Channel. Television stations and newspapers carried more chilling pictures of thousands of animal carcasses being burned at sites across Britain and mainland Europe -- either because of infection or as a precaution.
Blair said in an Internet broadcast that the situation was ''grave'' and added: "The funeral pyres of farm animals are the worst nightmare for livestock farmers.
Horse racing was banned in Britain for a week and this weekend's rugby match between Ireland and Wales in Cardiff was postponed for fear that traveling horses and sports fans might carry the virus to previously unaffected areas.
Much At Stake For Blair
For Blair there is much at stake because opinion polls have suggested that a general election in April or May would propel him back into power for a second term with another huge parliamentary majority. But holding an election campaign amid the contagious virus looks impossible and Blair now faces close scrutiny over his handling of the crisis that could affect his standing with voters. "Some people are already ruling out April (for an election).... at a time when we're saying to everyone to stay out of the countryside," Doug Henderson, a senior politician in Blair's Labor Party, told the BBC. "It may be that May is not possible either and therefore we may have to look beyond the summer even for a general election date."
Clearly mindful of the powerful rural vote, Blair's Labor government announced a 168 million pound ($242.4 million) compensat8ion package for beef, sheep and dairy farmers hit by foot-and-mouth -- a disease that can spread like wildfire through the air, on people's clothes and on vehicle tires.
The government extended the ban on the movement of all livestock within the country until March 16 and introduced fines to stop people using footpaths and bridleways in rural areas that had been closed because of the virus, which affects cows, pigs, sheep and goats.
A worldwide ban on British livestock and animal products remained in force. Europe steps up crackdown
In a crackdown against the risk of foot-and-mouth gained momentum. Germany said it would extend a quarantine zone Wednesday around a farm where five sheep had come into contact with animals infected with foot-and-mouth but had not contracted the disease. announced it would destroy 20,000 sheep imported from Britain, and German and Dutch authorities ordered more animals to be slaughtered as a precaution.
Poland banned imports of livestock, including pigs, goats and sheep, from the European Union and other European countries.
Activity at livestock markets across Ireland was suspended and the government told farmers to cancel meetings and keep animal movements to a minimum. But it was in everyday life that the effects of the disease were starting to be felt. British supermarket chiefs met Tuesday to discuss how to cope with the loss of supplies from their domestic producers. "We can keep the shelves reasonably full as long as everybody remains relatively sensible," one retailer told Britain's Financial Times newspaper. In some rural areas children were kept away from school for fear of spreading the virus. Parks and nature reserves remained closed to the public. Britain's jockey club announced the outbreak had forced it to suspend all horse racing for one week starting Wednesday. The suspension immediately raised doubts about one of the highlights of the racing calendar -- the Cheltenham Gold Cup on March 15. The world's most famous steeplechase, the Grand National, is due to be held in early April.
In Dublin, the Irish government banned horse and greyhound meetings and imports of the animals from Britain. The body representing Britain's one million anglers called on its members to stay out of the countryside and the Ramblers Association said it had been telling its 130,000 members not to walk in areas affected by foot- and-mouth and to avoid livestock.

More Foot-And-Mouth in UK, Fears Mount in Europe
By Mike Peacock
LONDON (Reuters) - The number of foot-and-mouth cases in Britain Jumped to 60 Sunday and officials in Denmark said they would know in 24 hours whether the highly contagious disease had crossed the North sea to infect an animal there.
Results of a second test on a cow in western Denmark suspected of contracting foot-and-mouth disease were due on Monday after an initial test proved negative, the Danish Food and Agriculture Ministry said.
Samples from the cow, which had shown symptoms of the disease, were tested by the state veterinary Institute on Saturday. The farm and surrounding farms in northwest Jutland have been sealed off.
"The cow only showed one symptom of foot-and-mouth disease, but we decided to be on the safe side and have it tested due to the present emergency situation in Europe,'' Inspector Birgit Hendriksen told the Danish national news agency, Ritzau.
British officials said the number of confirmed infected sites had risen to 60 after several new cases came to light in the previous 24 hours.
More than 50,000 animals have been slaughtered in Britain in an attempt to rein in the disease which carries minimal risk to humans and rarely kills animals but causes them to lose weight rapidly.
Worries On The Continent
France and Belgium reported their first suspected cases of foot-and-mouth disease Saturday, stoking fears that the contagion that broke out in Britain might have spread to continental Europe.
case in France concerned several sheep among a flock of 80 at a farm in
Roche-la-Moliere, southwest of Lyon in the Loire region.
A public veterinary official said initial tests had proven negative. Results of additional tests were expected Monday.
Belgium's farm ministry also announced it was investigating a suspected case at a pig farm at Diksmuide in western Flanders, not far from the border with France.
Irish soldiers manned checkpoints in the British province of Northern Ireland to prevent the spread of foot-and- mouth into the Irish Republic.
Much of the British countryside is now a no-go area with footpaths banned to hikers, riverbanks closed to anglers and forests and national parks also off limits.
Horse racing has been called off and a Six Nations rugby match between Wales and Ireland at Cardiff postponed.
with much of the countryside effectively in quarantine, the ruling Labor Party's widely expected plan to call an election for May 3 has been called into question.
Environment Minister Michael Meacher said talk of a national election was still only speculation but said local elections, due to be held on that day, were not under threat.
"We do not anticipate any change in the date of the local elections,'' he told sky Television, adding that it would be possible for a general election to be held on the same day.
Food Retailers Incensed
Agriculture Minister Nick Brown, meanwhile, said the government was looking at a statutory code of conduct to control the relationship of Britain's major supermarkets with their agricultural suppliers.
Food retailers were incensed Friday by charges from Prime Minister Tony Blair that in the wake of the foot-and- mouth outbreak they were holding farmers in an ''armlock,'' making profits at their expense by forcing down their prices but not passing them onto consumers.
A 16-month probe by the Competition Commission, which ended in October last year, concluded that customers were not being cheated by supermarkets over price or profits.
But it did recommend the enforcement of a code of conduct between retailers and their suppliers to ensure fair treatment.
Blair promised a national recovery program for farmers who have been crippled by the spread of the virus.
British farmers were also hard hit by the mad cow crisis. Mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), moved through British herds in the 1980s and now is appearing in other European cattle, slashing European beef consumption.
A human form, called new variant creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (VCJD), has killed more than 80 people in Britain and two in France.
