Teaching of Church of God, World Mission Society

One of the MANY things I love about the Church of God, World Mission Society is the teachings that have been right there in the Bible all this time. Actually, before coming to this church, I never considered too much about my spirit. Even going to other churches before, the focus was always on how to live prosperously in this life so that when we die, we can stand before God and only HOPE that we can go to heaven. Before coming to this church, going to heaven was like a 50/50 chance.

However, now attending the COG, World Mission Society, I know about my spirit and where I'm going after this world. Actually, my life didn't begin on this earth. Did you know that before we came to this earth, our spirit was in the Kingdom of Heaven? I never saw this verse before:

Eccl. 12:7 "...and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it."

How can I return to a place I've never been to? Since God is in heaven, my spirit will return to God (in heaven). Can you imagine? There are so many verses that show this, actually. Wouldn't you want to know why we suffer and feel pain as we do on this earth? Wouldn't you want to know why you were born?
