We who believe in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) should never fear death. For He rose from the dead, walked the earth after resurrection for 40 days then ascended to the right hand of the Father. Why? He died for our redemption; but also, I believe, He showed Himself afterward for encouragement and an example of what will happen for us too when we believe.
- Matthew 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
- Matthew 10:39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Also, what did Yeshua (Jesus) say to the disciples when Lazarus died in verse 11 of John?…”Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him.” And later to Martha, Lazarus’ sister, “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)
Hah! That’s the question. Do you believe this!?
What true power of life and death does anyone or anything have over us? None!
Believe it and live it!
