What does God say about Death?
The Bible states that it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment, Hebrews 9: 27. God has a plan for each of us on this earth. Do you know His plan? God allows us a very short time on this earth and then death comes. The causes of death are many—cancer, heart conditions, drugs, car wrecks, war, murder, old age and the list goes on.
God desires that you know His Son, Jesus. Romans 8: 1 reads “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”. You need not fear condemnation or death.
Here is the good news—Jesus will return to receive His own, both dead and alive. I 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”.
We need to be very grateful to God. Colossians 1: 12-13 “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”.
I hope you know God personally through His Son, Jesus, and receive the gift of eternal life.
