Death is the final stage, the withdrawal from the external 

world, the termination of the biological functions that

 define a living being. It is the constant, changeless ending

 of the vital processes by which we are sustained. This 

occurs when life leaves the physical body. 

 Of all life experiences, death and 

bereavement are considered to be the 

most disturbing, confusing, alarming 

and dreadful.

Each person's death is unique.

Whenever or however death takes place, every loss brings 

its share of pain, disruption, changes, and challenges.

The thought of death unnerves many people. Even the 

most secure and devout believer can have occasions when 

they dread and/or fear death.


But believers have no reason to fear...

Death is a fact of life. It is an 

occurrence that can change the way 

family functions in any culture, and it

 is the destination we will all share.

No matter how rich or poor, how

 accomplished, knowledgeable, or

 refined one may be... death is 

inevitable for us all.

Death is no respecter of persons. It 

comes to everyone. It is a natural 

cycle of life. It is the culmination of 

all that our lives have been.

The Bible is very clear in pointing out that there is a point 

when life on earth will end. The Scriptures tells us in 


"To everything there is a season, a time

 for every purpose under heaven"...

Our time to transition may come much later than we are 

expecting. On the other hand, it may occur much sooner.

Some choose to laugh in the face of death. When, in 

reality, they are actually afraid... preoccupied with some 

impending disaster, which leads to their philosophy of...

 “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die”

1 Corinthians 15:32.

Their existence may appear to be a joy-ride, from the 

outside, but it is a pointless way to live one's life. God

 does not intend for us to let time slip awawith such 


We can only enjoy life in the light of our relationship with

 God, for apart from God, we are nothing.

Throughout history and around the world there exists one 

experience which can more likely bind mankind together... 

that experience is death.

Death breaks down every difference 

in humanity until we are all the same... 


Death is the ultimate leveler, and it does not

discriminate. Death is the great equalizer, and

perhaps one of the most constant things in life

that all of us will face.

Regardless of our race, creed, color, ethnicity,

income level, age or any other factor, every

being still has one thing in common: we will

all die.

The tragic and unpredictable days of death,

 sorrow, and grief are inevitable life events all

 cultures share and share alike.

God has made everything 

beautiful in its season.

There is an appointed time for 

everything. And there is a time for 

every event under heaven ~

A time to give birth, and a time

 to die; A time to plant, and a time

 to uproot what is planted.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

Each of us will travel a path to 

an inevitable conclusion.

 Life’s journey will, someday, carry all of us

 to the distant shores of the great beyond.

The late, Steve Jobs, founder and CEO of Apple 

and Pixar Animation, said the following 

at the commencement address he gave at Stanford in 2005

(shortly after his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer):

"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to 

heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the 

destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And 

that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the 

single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It 

clears out the old to make way for the new.

Right now, the new is you, but someday not too long from 

now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared 

away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. But lest 

we work ourselves into a real funk and start wondering 

what’s the use of anything, let’s not forget that while we 

all may be equal in death, it’s what we do while we’re 

living that really matters. This is what we’ll be 

remembered for." 

Live while you are alive!

The future is now!

For the believer, our days on earth 

are just the beginning of our existence. 

 Death is not the end... 

it is the doorway to a new life of serving God

For the believer, to be “Absent” from the body 

means, at death, the spirit is separated from

 the physical body and moves immediately

 into its eternal abode with God forever.

For the believer, 

we believe death means...transitioning.

It means... passing through the gateway

 to another dimension... to our eternal home.

May we love our loved ones with a Holy detachment,

so that when the time comes, they will be free to go to 

their eternal home... with God.
