Jesus said, … If you do not believe that I am he, you will die in your sins.Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.
John 8:24; Revelation 14:13

The Bible teaches that there are only two ways to die. We die either in our sins or in the Lord.

Whoever dies in his sins must appear before our holy God in that condition. His guilt is proven; he can expect nothing other than condemnation. He will stand alone, without any attorney, before an unbribable Judge, who knows everything.

Through the grace of God, however, a born again Christian will die “in the Lord”. Through faith in Christ he has been freely justified and clothed in divine righteousness; he can cross the threshold to eternity in this state. No other form of righteousness can protect anyone from the divine sentence of condemnation. It is not those who have the amassed the greatest guilt who are lost, but all who refuse to believe in Christ as their Saviour.

The resurrection of the dead is a fact, even if it is outside our present experience. It is proven by the resurrection of Christ and is fundamental biblical doctrine. It will take place on two different occasions.

First comes “the resurrection of life”, promised to those who have received eternal life through faith in Christ. When Jesus Christ comes, all who belong to Him will be raised.

The resurrection of those who reject Christ will occur later. It is called “the resurrection of condemnation”. All who have been left here for that must expect God’s righteous verdict. Therefore: “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord”.

Today’s reading: Joshua 13:15-33 · 1 Corinthians 11:20-34
