Genesis 2:7 “The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
The Scene: The Lord filled the balloon with his breath and tied off the end of the balloon–symbolic of the Christians beginning their life in the Holy Spirit. The balloon soared.
2Corinthians 5:1 “Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”
All human beings are made by God and, like God, are triune beings. So when someone dies the spirit and soul are separated from body. The spirit and soul live on–the body begins to decay.
Genesis 3:19 “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
For Christians who are born-again the spirit and soul go to heaven to be with God the Father and Jesus the Son our Savior.
John 5:24 ” I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”
John 11:25-26 “Jesus said to her,”I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this? “
Matthew 10:28 “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Only non-believers ought to fear death!
