  • Romans 8:38-39
    I am absolutely sure that not even death or life can separate us from God’s love. Not even angels or demons, the present or the future, or any powers can separate us.Not even the highest places or the lowest, or anything else in all creation can separate us. Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.

    All these people were still living by faith when they died. They didn’t receive the things God had promised. They only saw them and welcomed them from a long way off. They openly said that they were outsiders and strangers on earth.People who say things like that show that they are looking for a country of their own.What if they had been thinking of the country they had left? Then they could have returned to it.Instead, they longed for a better country. They wanted a heavenly one. So God is pleased when they call him their God. In fact, he has prepared a city for them.
  • John 14:19
    Before long, the world will not see me anymore. But you will see me. Because I live, you will live also.
  • 2 Corinthians 5 1-2 Corinthians 5 8
    We know that the earthly tent we live in will be destroyed. But we have a building made by God. It is a house in heaven that lasts forever. Human hands did not build it.During our time on earth we groan. We long to put on our house in heaven as if it were clothing.Then we will not be naked.While we live in this tent of ours, we groan under our heavy load. We don’t want to be naked. Instead, we want to be fully dressed with our house in heaven. What must die will be swallowed up by life.God has formed us for that very purpose. He has given us the Holy Spirit as a down payment. The Spirit makes us sure of what is still to come.So here is what we can always be certain about. As long as we are at home in our bodies, we are away from the Lord.We live by believing, not by seeing.We are certain about that. We would rather be away from our bodies and at home with the Lord.

  • Romans 5:17-19
    One man sinned, and death ruled over all people because of his sin. What will happen is even more sure than this. Those who receive the rich supply of God’s grace will rule with Christ. They will rule in his kingdom. They have received God’s gift and have been made right with him. This will happen because of what the one man, Jesus Christ, has done.So one man’s sin brought guilt to all people. In the same way, one right act made people right with God. That one right act gave life to all people.Many people were made sinners because one man did not obey. But one man did obey. That is why many people will be made right with God.

There was no place for them.I saw the dead, great and small, standing in front of the throne. Books were opened. Then another book was opened. It was the book of life. The dead were judged by what they had done. The things they had done were written in the books.The sea gave up the dead that were in it. And Death and Hell gave up their dead. Each person was judged by what they had done.Then Death and Hell were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.Anyone whose name was not written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.
  • Revelation 22:1
    Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life. It was as clear as crystal. It flowed from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
  • 1 Corinthians 15 43-1 Corinthians 15 57
    It is planted without honor. But it is raised in glory. It is planted in weakness. But it is raised in power.It is planted as an earthly body. But it is raised as a spiritual body. Just as there is an earthly body, there is also a spiritual body.It is written,“ The first man Adam became a living person.”( Genesis 2:7) The last Adam became a spirit that gives life.What is spiritual did not come first. What is earthly came first. What is spiritual came after that.The first man came from the dust of the earth. The second man came from heaven.Those who belong to the earth are like the one who came from the earth. And those who are spiritual are like the heavenly man.We are like the earthly man. And we will be like the heavenly man.Brothers and sisters, here is what I’m telling you. Bodies made of flesh and blood can’t share in the kingdom of God. And what dies can’t share in what never dies.Listen! I am telling you a mystery. We will not all die. But we will all be changed.That will happen in a flash, as quickly as you can wink an eye. It will happen at the blast of the last trumpet. Then the dead will be raised to live forever. And we will be changed.Our natural bodies don’t last forever. They must be dressed with what does last forever. What dies must be dressed with what does not die.In fact, that is going to happen. What does not last will be dressed with what lasts forever. What dies will be dressed with what does not die. Then what is written will come true. It says,“ Death has been swallowed up. It has lost the battle.”( Isaiah 25:8)“ Death, where is the victory you thought you had? Death, where is your sting?”( Hosea 13:14)The sting of death is sin. And the power of sin is the law.But let us give thanks to God! He gives us the victory because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done.

  • Romans 4:17

  • 1 Corinthians 15 29
    Suppose no one rises from the dead. Then what will people do who are baptized for the dead? Suppose the dead are not raised at all. Then why are people baptized for them?
  • 1 Corinthians 15 20-1 Corinthians 15 26
    But Christ really has been raised from the dead. He is the first of all those who will rise from the dead.Death came because of what a man did. Rising from the dead also comes because of what a man did.Because of Adam, all people die. So because of Christ, all will be made alive.But here is the order of events. Christ is the first of those who rise from the dead. When he comes back, those who belong to him will be raised.Then the end will come after Christ destroys all rule, authority and power. Then he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father.Christ must rule until he has put all his enemies under his control.The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.
  • 2 Corinthians 4 14
    We know that God raised the Lord Jesus from the dead. And he will also raise us up with Jesus. And he will present both you and us to himself.
