For I know that my Redeemer lives,
and at the last he will stand upon the earth.
And after my skin has been thus destroyed,
yet in my flesh I shall see God
We are afraid to die. We are all terrified thinking that one day will come when our loved ones will finally bid us goodbye for life.
Death is inevitable. Everyone will come to an end. The only difference is that place where we will spend life after it—in Heaven or Hell. Are we now ready to die?
The Bible stated that God will come like a thief in the night. No one knows that time except the Father. Thus, we should always be prepared. If you had already accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior who also is the way, truth and life, then there is no need to worry. He is our Redeemer. He will never leave nor forsake us. Hence, whether we pass away earlier than God’s second coming or whether we’ll reach that time He’ll arrive, we are certain that we shall see God.
Death is not the end, it is just the start of a new journey with God-a life without problems where all of those who are saved will be joyfully praise, worship and serve Him alongside the angels. If you lost someone, think that probably God wants him/her to no longer suffer. Just consider that maybe the Father had missed that person so much that he/she has to bid us farewell to be with the God almighty. When you reminisce the good experiences you have with your “late” friend or relative, just look up high, smile and say, “Someday, we’ll meet again…this time, in Heaven”.
