People take their final breaths on a daily basis to the world beyond . Although we may never had met them or even know them but the reality of death happens every day. The permanent, irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism which is called death happens to thousands of people everyday and slip them into heaven or hell.
NOW WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DEAD?
Immediately the moment afer you dies, your soul temporarily leaves the body and awaits the resurrection. Those who died in Christ or place their faith in Christ will be carried by the angels into the presence of the Lord. They will be absent from the body and be with the Lord while the Unbelievers awaits in hades for the final judgement.
THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH AND THERE IS HEAVEN AND HELL. DO NOT BE DECEIVED…
“Our bodies will return to dust of the earth, and the breath of life will go back to God, who gave it to us.” Ecclesiastes 12:7
You dont have to cry out your eyes or feel shattered, when you lost a loved one who died in Christ. I know it is always painful, very painful but always console yourself with these words.
“Our brothers, we want you to know the truth about those who have died, so that you will not be sad, as are those who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will take back with Jesus, those who have died believing in Him. What we are teaching you now is the Lord’s teaching: we who are alive in the day the lord comes will not go ahead of those who have died. There will be the shout of command, the arch angel’s voice, the sound of God’s trumpet, and the Lord Himself will come down from heaven. Those who have died believing in Christ will rise to life first; then we who are living at that time will be gathered up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. So then, encourage one another with these words. 1 thessalonians 4:14-18
But the death of a sinner or an unbeliever is so painful and sorrowful because that special person has gone to the beyound, to suffer and gnash teeth. The worst is that his cries, torments even prayers offers no comfort of whatsoever, for there is a great gulf that is fixed where no one can pass to the other side. The sinner will be in his misery alone and there is flame of hope forever and will be denied of seeing his loved ones again.
While the believers, those who died in the Lord are precious in the sight of the Lord. They will be escorted by the angels into the presence of the Lord. They are now comforted. And they have faith of seeing their loved ones again. Death for a believer is a doorway into eternal happiness.
I know it is a sad and painful thing to lower our loved ones in grave in tears but you have to be consoled if your loved one died in Christ because you shall meet them again with joy! to see them smile again and feel their touch ones more… Never to part again!
But if you die as a sinner, you are going to hell. There is absolutely no pleasant way to say it.
Yeah! with no doubt the Bible states that “everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence.” Romans 3:23
The ‘ALL’ is talking to your soul and mine. But anyone can be saved if he/she realizes the awfulness of our sin against God and feel sorry from our deepest heart and ask for forgiveness and turn away from the sin and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and your saviour, then thou shall be saved. (Romans 10:9).
Never you allow yourself to shut your eyes in dirty sleep(death) without JESUS CHRIST. Death is not the most painful thing that can happen to humanity but not being able to secure eternal happiness.
