4 Can the dead live again? Job 14:14

5 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of Gods work from beginning to end. New Living Translation. 2nd ed. Eccl. 3:11

6 Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies so the living should take this to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter, for sadness has a refining influence on us. 4 A wise person thinks a lot about death, while a fool thinks only about having a good time. New Living Translation. 2nd ed. Eccl. 7:2-4

7 Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

8 At death Spirit and Body separate

9 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is also dead. James 2:26

10 Then Jesus shouted, Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands! And with those words he breathed his last. NLT 2nd ed. Luke 23:46





15 At death Our bodies stop, but our personalities continue on with our spirit.

16 2 Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John to the top of a mountain. No one else was there. As the men watched, Jesus' appearance changed, 3 and his clothing became dazzling white, far whiter than any earthly process could ever make it. 4 Then Elijah and Moses appeared and began talking with Jesus. 5 "Teacher, this is wonderful!" Peter exclaimed. "We will make three shrines one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." 6 He didn't really know what to say, for they were all terribly afraid. Mark 9:2-6 (NLT)

17 Now we see things imperfectly as in a poor mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God knows me now. 1 Cor 13:12 (NLT)

18 At death We leave time and enter eternity

19 59 And as they stoned him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 60 And he fell to his knees, shouting, "Lord, don't charge them with this sin!" And with that, he died. Acts 7:59-60 (NLT)

20 43 And Jesus replied, "I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise." Luke 23:43 (NLT)

21 Well receive new bodies

22 Resurrection!

23 25 "But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and that he will stand upon the earth at last. 26 And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God ! 27 I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought! Job 19:25-27 (NLT)

24 19 And if we have hope in Christ only for this life, we are the most miserable people in the world. 20 But the fact is that Christ has been raised from the dead. He has become the first of a great harvest of those who will be raised to life again. 1 Cor 15:19-20 (NLT)

25 54 When this happenswhen our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never diethen at last the Scriptures will come true: "Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? 1 Cor 15:54-55 (NLT)

26 Well have a new home

27 6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. 7 That is why we live by believing and not by seeing. 8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. 2 Cor 5:6-8 (NLT)

28 10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and everything in them will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be exposed to judgment. 11 Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives you should be living! 12 You should look forward to that day and hurry it alongthe day when God will set the heavens on fire and the elements will melt away in the flames. 13 But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world where everyone is right with God. 2 Peter 3:8-13 (NLT)

29 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a beautiful bride prepared for her husband. 3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, the home of God is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. 4 He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever." 5 And the one sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making all things new!" Rev 21:1-5 (NLT)

30 April 2003, CNN accidentally releases several obits. Castro, Mandela, the Pope (who had this happen three times), and…Dick Cheney

31 What kind of obituary are you writing?

32 There are three things that will endurefaith, hope, and loveand the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13 (NLT)

33 14 And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to live a pure and blameless life. And be at peace with God. 2 Peter 3:14 (NLT)
