Conquering the Fear of Death (1)

Conquering the Fear of Death (1)

‘LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.’
Psalm 39:4

Next time you drive through a tunnel and come out on the other side, remind yourself that’s how death will be for every redeemed child of God. You say ‘good night’ on earth, and hear ‘good morning’ in heaven. Dr Elizabeth Kübler-Ross explained that most of us go through the following stages when we face the prospect of dying: 1) Shock stage: ‘O, my God!’ 2) Denial stage: ‘It can’t be true!’ 3) Anger stage: ‘Why me?’ 4) Bargaining stage: ‘Spare me, God, and I will do something for You.’ 5) Depression stage: ‘It’s all over. I have nothing to look forward to.’ 6) Testing stage: ‘What can I do to make my remaining days worthwhile?’ 7) Acceptance stage: ‘It doesn’t make sense to fight the inevitable.. The truth is, the moment we were born we all began to run out of time. It’s just that in the wonder and excitement of childhood and adolescence, and the busyness and stresses of mid-life, we don’t think about it much. We’re like the hypochondriac who put the words on his tombstone: ‘I expected this, but not just yet!’ But as we age and realise that we’ve less time ahead of us than behind us, we begin to pray with the psalmist: ‘Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom’ (Psalm 90:12 NKJV). Someone asked Charles Spurgeon, ‘Do you have dying grace?’ He replied, ‘Not today, but I will when I’m dying!’ And the grace that has saved and sustained you thus far will be with you as you transition from your lesser life into your greater one.

Death is one debt,everybody must pay. , to every man it is appointed one day to die,and after death comes judgment.
The essence of life then,is to make preparations for eternity, whether in heaven or in hell fire. But the problem is that people often forget that this world is not our home,that we came from somewhere, and to somewhere someday must return. They carry all the things of the earth as if it lasts. Nothing lasts. All is vanity.Our toil to acquire wealth,get fame,become powerful.. Vanity!

Ecclesiastics 12:13-14
13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. 14 For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.

Ecclesiastics 12:1-2
1 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”: 2 While the sun and the light, The moon and the stars, Are not darkened, And the clouds do not return after the rain;
