Life after Death

People who don’t know what happens when they die don’t know that God can give them life.

From what God has told us in His Word, we have confidence and assurance of life after death. Jesus was the prototype of the “resurrected” body that every Christian will someday have in heaven. The old earthly body, with all of its limitations, will be gone. The Christian’s new body will be indestructible and immune from all defects.

Jesus gave His followers a glimpse of what was coming when He raised His friend Lazarus from the dead (John 11:17-44). Jesus wanted to demonstrate that physical death isn’t the final death. Spiritual death is the only one that counts for eternity.

The same power that Jesus used to transform the dead body of Lazarus is the same power God will use to transform our bodies when Jesus comes back to Earth (1 Cor. 15:51-57).

But let me tell you a wonderful secret God has revealed to us. Not all of us will die, but we will all be transformed. 1 Corinthians 15:51
