Death, a New Beginning

Death is something that most of people are afraid of. There are people who are committing suicide expecting that after death, they will finally have a peaceful time. Others are sad just by thinking about death because of the pain that their loved ones are going to feel. And for those who are left behind, some are sad because someone died, but others are sad because of debt that has been left to them. And many more emotions that people can feel because of death.

When I was a kid, I used to think of how would I die and how would I look inside the coffin. I don´t wanna die feeling the pain, or seeing the wounds and bloof in my body. I just wanna die peaceful but will that happen? Will my friends and family be crying? Where would I go after death, hell or heaven?

Those are random questions in my mind everytime I am thinking about death. But after having a deep relationship with God, my perspective changed. It became brighter about what will happen after death. I felt so much peace instead of fear. And assurance instead of confussion.

¨For God so loved the world, he gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have an eternal life¨
-John 3:16 
This is the most beautiful gift and promise to us from God almighty. It is by His grace that we are saved. Honor Jesus Christ as our God and put Him on our top priority. And love our neighbors and enemies. Those are some of His laws that we should follow every seconds of our life. 

He is great to always forgive and forget our sins. We just need to confess our sins, ask for forgiveness and repent. He will surely forgive us and forget our sins. He is not like us who forgive but never forget the sins of others. We should learn and live the way Jesus Christ live.

After learning and understanding those things, my perspective about death had changed. God loves us and it his by His grace that we will be saved. It is not about our good doings while we are in this world. So now, I am not afraid to die as long as I know His promise, that I live my life the way he wants to and follow His rules. I am human and I am not perfect. But I know that my God loves me, I need to repent and come to Him and I am sure that He will forgive me. 

After death, I know he will give me what He promised. An eternal life in heaven, with Him. There will be no more pain, no more sadness. We don´t need to suffer anymore. We will always sing of praise for His goodness that he showed to us. 

Here I end this blog. These are few of His promises to us, few of things that we need to know. I hope I can say and share more but I am sure God will prove those in your life. I am praying for you to have a deep relationship with God. And death is not something we should be afraid of, for we know that after death, it is a new beginning. A beginning of life full of love, joy and peace in His kingdom.

  3. Yes faith is very important to have when you are thinking about death. When you have faith you look at maximizing the time you have while alive.

  4. I feel death is beautiful. Because I had been very near to death. Psychologically we call it pre death hallucination mythologically heaven or hell. But I found peace. Well there is certain “dignity” in death, thats for sure. Many people see that.

    Even finding messed up bodies beautiful aint common, I think.

    Even old Romans said “memento mori”, one can live life so that they do not need to fear death. Of course its painful fearing horrific painful accidents and such. The fact that you “go” is natural, people mostly have remorses, because there are things they did not do in life etc. They fear “untimely death” that leaves them with unfinished business. And of course, most people fear what would happen to their closed ones!

    But still there are ways to tie loose ends, I know a guy who has got potentially lethal illness, but he has done it so that he feels if he goes the family is taken care of and so he can deal with it and make most of everyday. BTW. closeness of death motivated him to pursue love of his life, and he is one of few happily married guys I know. We are all on borrowed time…

  5. I feel that as long as you believe in God and try your best to live by his word, you should have nothing to fear when it comes to death. With that being said, it is still hard for me sometimes to think about what happens after death. I think it is natural for us all to wonder, and be fearful of the unknown.

  10. fear of death keeps us from living in the moment. any way in which we can more fully live our lives is good in my book

  11. I used to fear death as well, before. But now, as I come to believe that my faith has becoming stronger and stronger, it's safe for me to say that I don't anymore. I had already accepted the concept that everyone will come back to where they truly belong, to His Almighty Kingdom, once their mission has been fulfilled. So yeah, I agree, death is a new beginning, a new start to be with our Creator and a new start for the people we left a memory of.

  12. I have always been in paradox to think that death would come at anytime to me. This article is a realization that God lend us our lives and we should be grateful for that. 😊
