The Christian Perspective of Death 

 

Death is a universal reality. Everybody must taste death.  Kings, princes , princesses, wrestlers, army generals, warriors, beggars, sportsmen, scholars, teachers, farmers, fishermen, carpenters, religious scholars. Even the men of God and God’s prophets were not able to escape death. In due time, death strangled everyone. Nobody likes it. There is no home where death did not knock at their door. Even the strongest person surrenders before death.

Death is a separation.

Death is a frightening enemy.

 In spite of all this, death is a divine gift.

Think seriously for a while. If starting from Adam until today all our great grandparents would be alive, what would this world look like? There would be no space in our homes. What would the situation be in hospitals? Mankind would have been suffering greatly in his pain and sickness all those years. Young people would be only taking care of their elders; they could not do any other job apart from it. Certainly there would be no space for mankind on the face of earth to breathe. There would be no reserve of food. When a person thinks along these lines, he is terrified.

Death depicts that human life is mortal.

Death also teaches us the lesson how to live!

Death teaches us how to struggle for our survival.

Adam committed sin and he came under the influence of death. God said to Adam, “The day you eat of the fruit of this tree you will die.”

And the woman said unto the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden” (Genesis 3:2, KJV).

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, “Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die” (Genesis 3:3).

Adam died spiritually and physically. Adam and Eve took the fruit and ate it. They were removed from the presence of God. After this disobedience Adam lived for 930 years then at last he died. If Adam had not committed the sin, he would have lived forever.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

 

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Romans 5:12).

 

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

The one who has confessed his sins, has given up his sin, accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as his Personal Lord and Savior and follows Him whole heartedly... that person is a Christian.

What does a Christian think about death? Or what should he think about death?

How does he embrace death?

 

How does he look into the eyes of death and face this truth?

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10).

What is the Christian view of death?

Paul writes in the epistle to the Philippians, For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better. Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you (Philippians 1:23-24).

  • Death is a gain. Paul writes, For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21).

If I live, I live for Christ and I witness for him and if I die, it is better than life. In fact this is a gain. Death is a gain for a Christian.

  • Death is a sleep. The man who sleeps is resting. When his rest is completed, he wakes up. In the same fashion a Christian person will wake up after his death (sleep).

Paul writes in the epistle to Thessalonica, But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope (1 Thessalonians 4:13).

 Even our Lord Jesus said, “Our friend Lazarus is asleep.”

These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep (John 11:11).

  • Death is a door through which a believer enters into the presence of God.

 In death a believer closes his eyes in this world and opens his eyes in heaven, in the presence of God. In order to see the kingdom of God in a practical and real way, it is very essential that our eyes should be closed in this world so that we would rightly and clearly see the kingdom of God.

  • For a believer death is a condition when he is fully liberated from sin.
  • Now he is fully satisfied with the glory and beauty of Jesus’ countenance.

Nothing can hinder his fellowship with God.

The Lord Jesus Christ is his perfect leader and shepherd.

There is perfect Presence with the Lord.

He has perfect fellowship with the Lord.

He is in perfect safety and protection.

He is perfectly owned by the Lord.

He has perfect communion with the Lord.

He has perfect joy.

He has a perfect life.

He has perfect peace.

He has perfect health.

He has a perfect change in heaven.

He has perfect satisfaction.

  • Death can not harm God’s people. Death is very essential for the child of God, so that he can enter into the perfect joy of his Lord.
  • A believer enters into the joy of heaven immediately after his death.
  • God liberates his people from all kinds of hardships, trials and temptations by means of death.

These are words non-believers have said at the time of their death:

“God and man have left me. I will go into hell. Oh Christ! Oh, Jesus Christ!” (Voltair).

“When I was alive, I arranged for everything apart from death. Now I must die and I have not prepared myself for death” (Cesare Borga).

“How much blood! How much blood! I have followed so many terrible suggestions. I am lost. I see it clearly” (Charles the 9th, King of France).

Thomas Pane cried. “If I would have worlds, I would have given them away. Oh Lord help me, Oh, Christ help me. Stay close to me. Forsaking to such an extent is hell.”

These are words believers have said at the time of their death:

Mostly when Christians face death, there is a spirit of victory. At the time of their death, their words were recorded and they are full of zeal.

“Our God is the one who is the source of salvation. God is the Lord through whom we are delivered from death” (Martin Luther).

“Live in Christ and die in Christ, the physical body has no need to fear death” (John Knox).

“The best thing is this that God is with us” (John Wesley).

“I am feeling pain but I have peace, I have peace” (Richard Baxter).

When Augustine Toplady, the author of the hymn Rock of Ages was dying at the age of thirty eight, he was happy, excited and victorious. He proclaimed. “I have already been enjoying heaven in my spirit. My prayers have been transformed into praise.”

When Joseph Evert was dying, he said, “Glory! glory! glory!” He repeated again and again, “Glory! glory! glory,” for twenty five minutes.

Stephen, the first martyr of Church history, a few moments before his death, what did he say? Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God (Acts 7:56).

Saint Paul said, For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Phil. 1:21)and,I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith (2 Tim. 4:7).

May God grant us grace that we may have strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who conquered death so that we, as victors, may say along with Paul, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith.

May the Lord bless you.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
