Summary: Death is no respector of persons. Only the rapture will exclude all from facing this last enemy. Are you ready for death to come for you?
A Sermon For You
A Ministry of Huckaby’s Evangelism
The Reality of Death And The Entrance Into Eternal Life
By - Evangelist Gary Huckaby D.D.
Our text verse comes from the book of Romans. Please turn with me to this text from,the book of Romans 5:12; "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men; for that all have sinned:"
The awesome reality of death is a subject which must be faced by each person who is born upon this earth. It is the most definite fact of life. One day each will depart this life by the vehicle of death. So what is death? Why is death to the inhabitants on earth? What happens after death has taken life from the physical bodies of people? It has rightly been stated that at the moment of birth, the journey to the grave is begun. Death stalks every living soul, and always takes it’s bounty. In walking through the grave yards of this earth, we can readily see that death is no respecter of persons. It takes the old, the middle aged, the young and the infant. No one who is born is excluded from this fact, that as in Adam, all must die. Death is such a pertinent fact of life, that even the Lord Himself physically gave His earthly life to death. This He did willingly, to provide a means of escape from the original cause of death; SIN. For the sake of our understanding, let us look into the awesome fact of this subject; Death!
Genesis 1:26, says, "And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Verse 27, then states; "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he them; male and female created he them" And now verse 28, says, "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Man was created in the image of Almighty God, by God. This creation of the first human created is further pictured in the second chapter of Genesis. Many false teachings abound as to the origin of human kind, but the fact of life itself stems from the Creator, God. It is of little value to argue with false believers concerning the origin of mankind as that most will not change their opinion as to the definition of the beginning of life. Only a meeting with the Creator Himself will change these individuals concerning our beginning. No amount of argument will change these poor souls, only God could persuade them to see the truth. God created mankind and He created us for the purpose of having fellowship with Him. in Genesis 2:7, a bit more detail is given to the creation of man. "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." The word "formed" in the verse is understood from the Hebrew, as "molded; hand shaped." Before man had a soul, he had a body. The living soul was breathed into the body by God Himself.
