Bible Verses ｜Pass from Death to Life
It is assured that whoever lives according to God’s will earns eternal life. For those who perform well in accordance to God’s will, “He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life “(John 5:24). Thus, do not grieve for the loss of your beloved ones because they might come to live with God in the haven shortly after their death. As for me, I would say, those who die early are the ones who graduate earlier from the life course. Death is painful for human beings. But for God, they just “asleep” and “God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep” (1 Thessalonians 4:13). As to those who suffer, God “brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death” (Psalm 107:13-14). According to the Bible, “the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing…for the memory of them is forgotten” (Ecclesiastes 9:5). Thus, “do not lean on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5-6, James 1:17).
