Something you look forward too all your life...
Passing from one life to the next...death.
We are not comfortable with death.
Death is a gift to help us feel new.
1. Certainty of Death: 100% death rate
Ecclisiastese: the living know that they should die
Hebrew 9:26: once death, then judgement
Genesis 7:21: everything dies
2 Kings 20:1: everyone dies
2.Cause of Death: SIN
Romans 6:23: wage sin for death
Ezekiel 18:4: souls that sin, die
James 1:15: sin brings death
Romans 5:12: one man sinned and death followed
Romans 2:23: everyone sins
We will all die because of sin
3. Culmination of Death: For the Saved
Paul "fought te fight and won the race". He did not fear death. To live is in Christ, to die is to gain.
To fear death is to not understand
Genesis 49:33: you are brought together with the people of God, reunited with past saints.
Romans 8:11: the same power that raised Christ will be the same power to resurrect you
Revelations 22:12: as a Christian we can not work our way to heaven, we must live the life to earn our rewards. The Lord will reward us for what we have done.
You don't wanna be the one to have no rewards. You will have nothing to lay at Christ feet.
Revelations 22:3-4: nothing bad in heaven, the Lords throne will be there, we will see Christ, and we will be apparent Christians
For those that are unsaved you will be separated forever. THERE ARE NO DO OVERS. (Revelation 20:12-15)
