Death! The uncertainty of these days has caused many to fixate on it and the afterlife. It is because we are spiritual beings and there really is a supernatural world with supernatural beings in it. Those who have rejected God try to fill a spiritual void that only God can fill. TV shows and movies glorifying zombies, apocalypse and fantasy about a supernatural beings in supernatural worlds all come from a deep seated spiritual desires that seek to fill a void without the influence of truth from a loving God.
Are you afraid of death? If so, it's the fear of the unknown. Do you wonder what the truth is? Then let me help you because death is certain and life is precious.
Everyone Has an Appointment with Death
For he sees wise men die; Likewise the fool and the senseless person perish, And leave their wealth to others. Their inner thought is that their houses will last forever, Their dwelling places to all generations; They call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless man, though in honor, does not remain; He is like the beasts that perish.
And as it is appointed for men to die once.... But God....
But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave, For He shall receive me.
There is an Afterlife & it is Eternal
For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,
knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
There is a reckoning! Everyone will give an account of their life.
And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,
And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
There is a Lake of Fire
Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
How do you get your name written in the book of life?
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
To receive Christ and move from death to eternal life, confess anything the Bible calls sin. Repent, which means change your mind and your actions should reflect that change, ask Jesus to forgive you and receive you. Ask Him to become your Lord and Savior. Then times of refreshing will come from the presence of the Lord.
Death is Swallowed up in Victory!
1 Corinthians 15:51-57
Behold, I tell 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 trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will 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 has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
