Do believers go to Heaven and unbelievers go to Hell when they die, or do all remain “asleep” until the future resurrection and judgment? Pastor Hollandsworth searches the Scriptures to see if the Intermediate State position, held by most Christians, is biblical.
The nobleman’s son will surely die unless Jesus goes to heal him. But Jesus refuses to go, rebuking the man (and all Israel) for requiring signs before they will believe. Jesus causes a quandary of faith by assuring the man his son has been healed. Will he accept this by faith? Pastor Hollandsworth delineates why God often allows quandaries of faith in our lives, and he points out why Jesus heals this boy “after two days … on the third day.”
Why does Jesus travel to culturally-forbidden Samaria to meet a woman at a well? Why does He offer her “a fountain of water, springing up to everlasting life,” and what does that mean? What do the disciples learn from the encounter? Pastor Hollandsworth answers these questions, discloses the new revelation that Jesus shares with the woman, and clarifies the meaning of worshiping God in spirit and truth.

Learn about your podcast host, Pastor James Hollandsworth, and how he came to realize that what he had been taught about the Judgment Seat of Christ was all wrong. The account we must all give to God is serious, not a mere awards ceremony, and multitudes of believers are unprepared because they have been incorrectly taught.
