Christians are not afraid of death. In fact we sing: “When I die Hallelujah bye and bye, I’ll Fly Away.” So we look forward to the death of this body of flesh and blood, because we know that as long as we are here on this earth we are not living in heaven with Jesus our Lord. Paul the Apostle said that he would rather be out of this physical body, and alive in his new body with the Lord, Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5) When my spirit leaves my body, I am dead, by definition. But as a Christian, when my spirit leaves my body, I am immediately Alive with the Lord, and in my new body. I hope that you believe this?
