2 Kings 6:17
And Elisha prayed, and said, "Lord, I pray, open his eyes that
he may see." Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man,
and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and
chariots of fire all around Elisha.
Don't Be Afraid To Die
JOHN 11:25 NKJ
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He
who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
The sting of death has been removed for the Christian believer
by Jesus our Lord.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:55 NLT
55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your
I am not afraid to die. There is no reason for any follower of
Jesus to fear death.
REVELATION 12:11b NLT
11 And they did not love their lives so much that they were
afraid to die.
I'm in no rush to die, for it's best to live a full life on
earth and finish our race here. But after we finish on earth,
death for a Christian believer is a promotion.
There are many people who claim to have visited Heaven and came
back. I have never heard one indicate they wanted to leave and
return to earth. They all say it is wonderful there beyond
What else could we expect from our wonderful Lord Jesus!
1 THESSALONIANS 4:13-14 NLT
13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what
will happen to the believers who have died so you will not
grieve like people who have no hope.
14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life
again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring
back with him the believers who have died.
When a Christian dies, they leave their body and go to be with
Jesus (Who loved us enough to die for us). Why should we be
afraid of that?
2 CORINTHIANS 5:8 NKJ
8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from
the body and to be present with the Lord.
PHILIPPIANS 1:21-23 NKJ
21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my
labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell.
23 For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to
depart and be with Christ, which is far better.
SAY THIS: I am not afraid to die and go to be with Jesus.
Rejoice In The Lord
PHILIPPIANS 4:4 NKJ
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
At least five times the Bible tells the people of God to
rejoice in the Lord.
We may not always be able to rejoice in other people, or in our
People can be frustrating. People can be immature. People can
be undependable. Need I go on?
But the Lord is different! God is dependable. God is faithful.
God is honest. God is good. God is patient. God is kind. God is
understanding. God is merciful and gracious.
MALACHI 3:6 NLT
6 "I am the LORD, and I do not change. That is why you
descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed.
When we focus on our circumstances, or on what people do, we
can lose our joy quickly.
But with a true understanding of what God is really like, we
cannot help but rejoice because of His goodness and greatness.
If you are not sure what God is really like, then look at Jesus
Christ in the pages of the Four Gospels in the New Testament.
Jesus Christ perfectly revealed to us what God is like.
SAY THIS: I will keep my focus on the goodness and greatness of
the Lord and rejoice in Him.
