How To Beat Death

Guest Author - Preena Deepak

Death is the inevitable end to our brief life on earth. Man has failed in all his attempts to prevent death which is the one end that all humans alike face with no distinction. This inexplicable but definite event in the life cycle is one that defies and baffles mankind. However, death is neither a mystery nor a terror to God’s people who have gained access to Him through faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible clearly sets forth the reason for death and also unfolds God’s well drafted plan for those who believe in Him to escape the pangs of death.

Let’s explore the most puzzling questions about death and look for answers from Him who holds in His hands the power to give and withdraw life.

Why do people die? Can old age, terminal illness, unfortunate accidents or suicide be the answer to this question? Maybe for some of us who have not known the Author of Life. The Bible sets out the real reason for death, …the wages of sin is death….Romans 6:23. The physical corruption that culminates in death is nothing but the result of the moral corruption of the sin stained soul.

What happens when a person dies? We all know that the dead are buried or cremated. Death steals away loved ones leaving behind no trace of their existence. This departure of a person causes grief and sorrow since there seems to be no chance to see these lost souls, hear their voice or feel their touch.

The Bible however reveals an astonishing fact about what happens to believers who die. And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don’t want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 4:13,14 (The Message)..

Those who believe in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and live by faith in Christ are liberated from the pangs of death and assured of life with no death! Does that not sound amazing? Those who cling to Christ need not fear death either for themselves or for the ones they love who also believe in Jesus. These are the true children of God who boldly affirm while dying, I have done only what is right, so I will see your face. And seeing you, I will be fully satisfied. Psalm 17:15 (ERV)

We understood that it was sin and misdeeds that causes death. Where would we be if the verse did not proceed to say, ‘….the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NKJV).’ Would you not rather accept this gift from God and escape from death?
