The Light of Truth
Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of faith is
to see what we believe.
Great to have you back again! In this Do Not Fear Death Quotes Step, we're going to look at death from a more personal level. One thing that may scare you about death is coming face to face with God. I know it's hard to admit, because being a Christian adult you know that Jesus said:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is
the first commandment.
And when you love someone that much, sometimes fear of losing them arises and at times, whispers will try and con-vince you that maybe you really don't Love God the way He wants you to, and maybe you're just afraid of Him. This is not Truth! Again, your fear is of the unknown.
What Else Are the Whispers Saying?
When you start pondering about death, naturally you think about all the things that the world has taught people about it. Instead, we are going to learn to ponder upon some, Do Not Fear Death Quotes. Let's see if we can zero in on a major concern that you might have, shall we? There's a fear in many people that whispers, I'm not as good as God wants me to be. He's going to sit me down in a wooden chair two sizes too small to sit in, in front of the entire host of Heaven with that infamous white wall that stretches to infinity, and on it will be written a never ending list of all the sins that I committed throughout my life.
Maybe even a video of the actual events, or a whole bunch of screens like the television department at Sears with a different incident on each screen that I must give explanation for. I'll be so scared that you'll be able to see my heart thumping in my chest. All the blood will drain from my face, as my head will start to shrink, all except for my nose, like when you get too close to a Christmas tree ornament, and my mouth will turn to chalk as I stand up and start stuttering like Porky Pig many ridiculous excuses that I know can never justify what I've done.
How not to fear death Tidbit of Truth; If that's what you presume it's going to be like - Friend, no wonder you're fearful. And the sad thing is that many Pharisee preachers (and especially whispers in the mind) love to teach gloom and doom and hell's fire and brimstone, even about Heaven! But, wait just a minute. You seem to have forgotten something very important; God's Grace!
Do you suppose Jesus suffered and died for our sins to give us the opportunity to have everlasting life;
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting
Only to kick back and say "Sin, so I can cast you into Hell"? The next verse addresses that nonsense;
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
Do Not Fear Death field trip ... Now, let's talk about all that sin that you are worried about which may be the source of your fear of death. Let's take a look at what the Word says about how your sin can not possibly outweigh God's Grace.
Ezekiel 18:21-22, 27-28
21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he
hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful
and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they
shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he
hath done he shall live.
27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his
wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and
right, he shall save his soul alive.
28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his
transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your
doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed,
judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:
though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth
iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His
heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because He
delighteth in mercy.
19 He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us;
He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into
the depths of the sea.
I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine
own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and
plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded
us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the Heaven is high above the earth, so great
is His mercy toward them that fear Him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He
removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord
pitieth them that fear Him.
14 For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are
15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the
field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the
place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to
everlasting upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness unto
18 To such as keep His covenant, and to those that
remember His commandments to do them.
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be
blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the
presence of the Lord.
There are also several Scriptures that tell us that charity, love, and bringing back a sinner that has gone astray, will cover or hide a multitude of sins!
1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for
charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the
error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a
multitude of sins.
Does that sound like God wants to hold your sins against you forever?
Your Father doesn't want you to be frightened of Him, He wants you to
respect Him and be comforted by Him. He gives you avenues by which to
erase your sins.
O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good: for His mercy
endureth for ever.
There's many more Do Not Fear Death Quotes that will further calm your fears. Learning more about God, just like learning more about death will take away your fears. Ironically enough, there is something called ... Fear of the Lord. And if you gain this fear, it may eliminate your fear of death. Fear of the Lord doesn't mean being afraid of Him, it means that you have the utmost respect and love for Him. As you can see from scripture, if you fear the Lord, not only will He take away your fears.
I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
And keep evil away ...
The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide
satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
But, He will also save you from death.
18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him,
upon them that hope in His mercy;
19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep
them alive in famine.
26 In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and his
children shall have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to
depart from the snares of death.

reverent and respectful of Him and that your Father doesn't want you
to fear Him (in the frightened sense) any more than you would want
your own children to be frightened of you. He's not out to get you,
He's out to save you.
Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in
the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and
live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O
house of Israel?
For White Wall Worriers
How Not To Fear Death Blessing ... I've waited until now to give you this good news because God's Grace
is so precious and valuable and if you didn't know some of the things
you just read, it may be easy to take some things for granted. That,
my dear friend, is something you never want to do.
The good news that I just mentioned is this; If you go to
Abraham's Bosom (Paradise) when you die, or if you are raptured, you
will be in the 1st resurrection, which is when you are taken to
Heaven ... In case you'd like to review what you learned about this,
it's at the last part of the Abraham's
Bosom Study. Those souls that are in the 1st resurrection are
not called before God at the Great White Throne Judgment! I can
almost hear your sigh of relief. This How Not To Fear Death study will explain it all:
Now, About That Personal Stuff
Remember we learned in the first do not fear death Step that most fear comes from not knowing about something. It's a natural thing that you go through many times in your life. A new job, the first day of school, taking a test, nightmares ... The list of fearful things in life is endless. Most every time, we have learned that there was nothing to be afraid of at all. The logical answer is to learn about what happens during and after death.
And on a personal level, what you really want to know is, what happens to you when you die. So, Let's start with you! Who are you, anyway? No, no, not what name you were given when you were born. No, not what is your job or career or even what your ambitions are in life. Who are you? To make this a little bit easier to understand, think about this: God created you in His image.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and
over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the
earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
What's this "our" image and "our" likeness all about? Let's take a
look at God.
God the Father
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit
This is called the Holy Trinity. He is one God, in three divine persons.
This Do Not Fear Death study will help you to understand the Holy Trinity better and
when you're finished, we'll take an even closer look at how it
relates to you and the fear of death.
Now, a tiny bit of review here because since you are created in God's image, there must be three parts of you as well. And there is:
Look at the three parts of the Holy Trinity again, but this time.
compare and identify them with the three parts of you.
First, let's talk about the body ... The flesh. Perhaps along with
gravity, it keeps our souls and spirits anchored to the Earth. The
body is from the Earth ... made from dust, and when you die, the
body, that heavy, cumbersome, burdensome, bulky, high maintenance
carton that your soul and spirit have towed around for a lifetime ...
Goes back where it came from ... The Earth.
Check out these two verses from the book of Genesis to see how the
Word describes where the body came from and what happens to it
when it dies.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed
into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto
the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and
unto dust shalt thou return.
So, you know where the body came from and where it goes when it dies,
but don't misunderstand, though many times we detest our flesh
because of Original Sin, it is still very important, don't neglect to
give it the care it deserves.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the
Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God
in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
Next, take a look at the spirit. What is your spirit? Keep in mind
that we are made in God's image, and He sent the Holy Spirit to teach
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send
in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to
your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Your spirit is the part of you that obeys the things that your soul
tells it to feel. Many people think that the spirit and the soul are
the same thing, but, your mind (soul) controls your spirit. Your mind
tells your spirit (your feelings and emotions) to act and/or to react
The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath
given me life.
Thus saith God the LORD, He that created the Heavens, and stretched
them out; He that spread forth the Earth, and that which cometh out
of it; He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to
them that walk therein:
What happens to your spirit when your body dies? Your spirit, the
breath of God in you, goes back to God when your mortal body dies,
because it belongs to Him.
Then shall the dust return to the Earth as it was: and the spirit
shall return unto God who gave it.
Here's the answer to the question asked earlier ... Who are you,
You are your soul. Your soul is your being. It is your existence.
When you think of your virtues, not your physical self, but the
things that make you who you are and different from everyone
else that ever existed ... that ... Is who you are.
Finally, the answer to that fearful question ... What happens to
you ... Your soul ... When your body dies and your spirit returns
to God? If you're a believer in Jesus Christ, it's a journey to look
forward to. Just a couple of hints about where your soul will be
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would
have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for
them that love Him.
Did you read that? That means that even if you could imagine your
life after this one, being the most wonderful thing you could ever
think of ... You still haven't imagined anything as wonderful
as it truly is, because you can't. It's just too awesome ... Beyond
Now, that's a bit vague, and you're probably wanting a little more
detail about things. So we're going to back up just a bit and start
from the beginning and learn step by step what happens to you when
When the Death of a Christian Occurs ...
This is known as the 1st death ... The spirit returns to God:
Then shall the dust return to the Earth as it was: and the spirit
shall return unto God who gave it.
The Soul is carried away by Angels to Abraham's Bosom also known as Paradise.
Jesus shared this Truth:
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in
purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was
laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from
the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was
carried by the Angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also
died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and
seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on
me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water,
and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy
lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil
things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a
great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you
cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou
wouldest send him to my father's house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto
them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the
prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto
them from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the
prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the
The body returns to dust:
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return
unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art,
and unto dust shalt thou return.
Of course the body doesn't instantly dissolve into dust, but after
the death of the body and until it does decompose, it does not
contain your soul and spirit any longer. This is a great time to learn more about what happens to your soul in
Interesting, huh? Okay, back to our Do Not Fear Death Quotes journey as to understand the order of things that happen when a Christian dies. The body dies, the spirit returns to God, the soul goes to Abraham's Bosom also known as Paradise, then the body turns back into dust. At this point, you rest in peace until the 7th Trumpet of the End Times. This is the 1st resurrection, and at this time, you receive a spiritual body when you are raised and meet those who are Raptured in the air, and then you go to Heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:42-44
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in
corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is
sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual
body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a
shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so
shall we ever be with the Lord.

Earth. Those who have been raptured and those who were part of the
1st resurrection, live and reign with Christ in Heaven for 1,000
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given
unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the
witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not
worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his
mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and
reigned with Christ a thousand years.
At the End of the Millennium, Satan is released from the bottomless pit.

fire to be tormented for eternity.

they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be
