Have You Gave Some Thought To Life After Death?
I've been asked by people who wanted to know what happens to us when we die. Even Bible believing Christians get confused on this one. There are lots of groups call themselves Christians, each one has there own belief at what happens after death. Some say we go into the ground and that is the end of it. Some say we just go to heaven a float around as disembodied spirits through out eternity. How about ceasing to exist because who we are is just a figment of our imaginations. Oh! here is a good one: As you are Jesus once was, as jesus is you shall become; you shall be God after some kind of way of reaching Nirvana.
This is what I believe, you don't necesarily have to subscribe to this unless you want to be happy like me. Check this out, your going to like this.
Immediately at death, the spirit of the believer departs to be with Christ in a state that is far better than the one in Which it existed here on earth. (Philipians 1:23). It is 'absent from the body and..a home with the Lord' (2 Cor 5:8). But this is not the final state of blessedness of the redeemed. Wait this gets better. In the final state of blesedness, the spirit is not merely unclothed from its present mortal body but is clothed with its resurrection body.
With the resurrection body everything you don't like about the body you have now gets an upgrade. Bald heads get hair, false teeth gets real teeth. missing body parts gets restored. No more wheel chair bound or crutches. Jesus showed us he can do this through the miracles he performed while here on earth. We will obtain this resurrection body at the second comming of Christ, when the bodies of those that sleep in Christ are raised from the dead and the bodies of believers living are transformed in the twinkling of an eye when our perishable bodies become imperishable. (1Thessalonians 4:15-17; I Corinthians 15:51-53)
