Death Uncovered

1. We are all appointed to DIE.

Hebrews 9:27-28—And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes

judgment, so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of

many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who

are eagerly waiting for him.

2. Death is VICTORY for the believer.

Revelations 21:3-4—I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is

now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be

with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow

or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

2 Corinthians 12:3-4—Yes, only God knows whether I was in my body or outside my body.

But I do know that I was caught up to paradise and heard things so astounding that they

cannot be expressed in words, things no human is allowed to tell.

Going to heaven isn’t Failure!

1 Corinthians 15:54-55—Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that

will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. 55O death,

where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”

3. Grief is the PRICE of love for those who remain.

John 11:35 NIV—Jesus Wept.

In the midst of death we have to decide:

Am I going to run away from my faith or run to my faith?

4. Death is simply a change of ADDRESS.

2 Corinthians 5:6-9 NIV—Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are

at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are

confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we

make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.

John 14:1-4—Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is

more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I

am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so

that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.

5. We all will face JUDGEMENT.

2 Corinthians 5:10 NIV—For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that

each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or


Revelation 20:15—And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was

thrown into the lake of fire.

Matthew 6:19-21—Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust

destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where

moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure

is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

Our deeds do not gain us ACCESS into heaven but determine our REWARDS in


1 Corinthians 3:11-15—For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already

have—Jesus Christ. Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—

gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of

work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. If the work

survives, that builder will receive a reward. But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer

great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of


6. There are some QUESTIONS that we will never answer on this side of heaven.

Deuteronomy 29:29 NIV—The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things

revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.

Sometimes we wrestle too much over WHY they died rather than rejoicing in WHERE

they have gone.

Everyone has questions. Don’t allow your questions to become bigger than your
