Summary: A lesson that can be learned even in death!
Things that Job cared about were now gone his childern,livestock,land, servants, crops and his health and yet he is able to make this statement.
He was certain about three things:
1-That there is a God!
2-And that he would stand before Him!
3-And he was ready for that day!
For a christian we can be certain of some things too.
Death is just a transition. Although the body ceases to function, the spirit lives on.
Death, according to the Bible, is a change of status.
That which perishes is exchanged for that which is imperishable
Death ushers us into the presence of the living God.
Death brings us into eternity.
All of us must face death sometime. Hebrews 9:27 says, “. . . man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.”
In light of this, we should all take great care to live in such a way that when it comes our time to die, we are ready to face God.
You see, death is not death if you know the Lord. It is merely a change of place,and a transferal from one realm of existence into another.
Death is not death, if it kills no part of us, except that which hindered us from becoming perfect.
Death is not death, if it raises us in a moment from darkness into light, from weakness into strength, from sinfulness into holiness.
Death is not death, if it perfects our faith by sight, and let’s us behold Him in whom we have believed.
Death is not death, if it rids us of doubt and fear, of sickness and disease, of sorrow and sadness.
Death is not death, if it gives us to those whom we have loved and lost.
Death is not death; for Christ has conquered death, for Himself, and for those who have trusted Him as their Redeemer!
