Hi
Has God killed anyone or has he only put them to sleep awaiting the resurrection and judgement.

.  Act 7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. View more

1Co 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. View more

1Co 15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. View more

1Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope     


If all those who have passed on are only asleep then they are not dead but will be woken up at the resurrection.

Love and Peace
Dave

Okay having written my post it was suddenly deleted - so
lets start again.. using notepad and post ..

Let me take you back in time as satan and his hordes and God travels in time...

Reminding you of your past [for better or for worse]

I think we are talking about two natures here ..

The nature of satan is to destroy the works of God [not god]

[god] is any god we worship in life.

whereas satan seeks to destroy those made in God's image [depending omn how you define those made in God's image]

As this can assume anything with a human form - re : an ape or monkey..

Or those who are really being made into the image of Christ - re : born again.

Whereas satan and his hordes destroy - this is not God;'s nature [as God creates]

Evil will and can only destroy itself - it seeks to destroy anything that is of God.

God on the other hand will allow you to destroy yourself...

He is the Parent who waits for the prodigal son.

The nature of God is to be patient .

He wants the best for His Children and only see's the Son once someone has given
a life and heart to His Son.

God the Father does not see our sin - but now see's His Son.

This is the differennce between the two natures...

So when you ask "how many people did god kill"

Well that is up to the people comncerned and what god they had..

Whereas God wants all to come to Him - this is His nature..

He does not want anyone to perish - whereas satan wants all to perish..

Yes god is the god of history - God on the other hand has His - Story [which can be yours]

The answer to your question is in "god" and not using the capital  "God"

There is a big differnce between the two..

Can satan destroy the works of God - of course he can.

you have the two natures at work here..

And our nature - depending on which Nature  we depend on..

Remember spirits and Spirits [the Holy Spirit] can move between time...

Sorry Tes,
                The devil only has power where he is permitted to have power. That is one of the lessons of job.

God is outside time and space, but I'm not aware of any scripture that shows that the devil etc can travel through time.
