Second Lease on Life: Is There Life After Death?

After my close call with death last month, it strangely gives more perspective and meaning to life. I as a Christian of course believe in Jesus and His Word, so I don’t have a fear of dying per se, as I know where I will be going after I am gone.

Although I needed to be jolted in the Emergency Room, I did not have any so-called out of body experiences. The only thing besides thanking God to allow me to live, and I have become more unrestrained in sharing God’s Word from the pages of the Bible as to what happens after death.

Here are some of the scriptures associated with the subject of the afterlife. Of course the scripture also speaks of the unimaginable terror of going to hell:

Luke 16:22-23 (NASB)
22 “Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried.
23 “In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom.

Revelation 14:11 (NASB)
11 “And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

John 14:3 (NASB)
3 “If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

2 Corinthians 5:8 (NASB)
8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.

Philippians 1:21–23 (NASB)
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
22 But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose.
23 But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;
