He has swallowed up death forever! The Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces. He will take the reproach of his people away from off all the earth, for the LORD has spoken it.
Nothing I say about death and the hope of eternity could possibly be more adequate than the words taken from the following hymns. Let their words bring you comfort, hope, joy, and peace.
Beyond the sunset, O glad reunion; With our dear loved ones who’ve gone before; In that fair homeland we’ll know no parting; Beyond the sunset forever more…
And then one day, we’ll all cross the river and fight life’s final war with pain. And then, as death gives way to victory, I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know he lives
With numberless blessings each moment He crowns, and filled with His fullness divine; I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God, For such a Redeemer as mine.
When clothed with His brightness transported I rise to meet Him in clouds of the sky. His perfect salvation, His wonderful love, I’ll shout with the millions on high.
Heaven is real and waiting for all those who give their lives to Jesus.
Pray: LORD, my prayer is that I will live each day in a way that pleases You so that I will know the peace that comes from having You as Savior here on earth and so that I can live knowing I have the assurance of heaven. In your name I pray, amen.
