Since it seems like all manner of things have ramped up in the world today
more people are looking to the Bible for answers
about questions they may have put on the back burner.... until 2021
So here are some questions we could look at,
that people may wonder what does
the Bible, God's word say?
we could study :
what happens after it,
and what Jesus means in John 11:25. etc,
immediately after death,
and after eternity starts,
and the difference between the two
the Millennial kingdom,
(which could also include heaven after death and after eternity starts and the difference, etc.)
and the Lake of fire,
and the difference
and what is waiting for those who will go there.
Love (which includes forgiveness)
which is how Jesus says others will know we belong to Him;
what does it look like, etc.
We can also add to this list
if it seems right to do so.
So today, I will just give a short start looking at the first one:
what happens after it,
and what Jesus means in John 11:25.
I am thinking the first thing to mention
is some people want to believe that when you die
that is the end
no longer exist.
But that is NOT what the Bible says
we are all of us
going to live forever, eternally.
The real question is where will we live
and how will we live
( just as spirits or even 'ghosts'
or something very different?
And so now might be a good place to say
that it all depends on if you are a saved believer
when you die,
or not...if you did not accept Jesus's sacrifice
and payment in full for your sins.
I think for a Christian believer
this is a good beginning:
6 So we are always of good courage.
We know that while we are at home in the body
we are away from the Lord,
7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.
8 Yes, we are of good courage,
and we would rather be away from the body
and at home with the Lord.
9 So whether we are at home
we make it our aim to please him.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,
so that each one may receive
what is due for what he has done in the body,
whether good or evil.
2 Corinthians 5:6-10
And of course this verse
which could be one of the most memorized verses
16 “For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him
should not perish
but have eternal life.
