What happens when WE die?

Ecclesiastes 9:5

King James Version

5 For the living know that they shall die: 

but the dead know not any thing, 

neither have they any more a reward; 

for the memory of them is forgotten.

For the longest time, I put off thoughts about death.

But GOD led me to Bible prophecy in September 2019.

Then JESUS alerted me to the RAPTURE in January 2020.

My beloved baby sister dies in my arms in October 2021.

There was no more evading the issue of death.

If not for the GRACE of GOD, I'd have fallen apart.

This blog is for my healing, and for Scripture's revealing.

Here are verses to help us all, in our moments of grief.

Genesis 3:19

King James Version

19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, 

till thou return unto the ground; 

for out of it wast thou taken: 

for dust thou art, 

and unto dust shalt thou return.

Psalm 6:5

King James Version

5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: 

in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

Psalm 146:3-4

King James Version

3 Put not your trust in princes, 

nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; 

in that very day his thoughts perish.

Ecclesiastes 3:19-20

King James Version

19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; 

even one thing befalleth them: 

as the one dieth, so dieth the other; 

yea, they have all one breath; 

so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: 

for all is vanity.

20 All go unto one place; 

all are of the dust, 

and all turn to dust again.

Ecclesiastes 12:7

King James Version

7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: 

and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Isaiah 26:19

King James Version

19 Thy dead men shall live, 

together with my dead body shall they arise. 

Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: 

for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, 

and the earth shall cast out the dead.

Daniel 12:2

King James Version

2 And many of them that sleep 

in the dust of the earth shall awake, 

some to everlasting life, 

and some to shame 

and everlasting contempt.

Ezekiel 18:4

King James Version

4 Behold, 

all souls are mine; 

as the soul of the father, 

so also the soul of the son is mine: 

the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Matthew 10:28

King James Version

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul: 

but rather fear him which is able to destroy 

both soul and body in hell.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

John 5:24

King James Version

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

He that heareth my word, 

and believeth on him that sent me, 

hath everlasting life, 

and shall not come into condemnation; 

but is passed from death unto life.

John 5:25-27

King James Version

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

The hour is coming, 

and now is, 

when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: 

and they that hear shall live.

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; 

so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, 

because he is the Son of man.

John 5:28-29

King James Version

28 Marvel not at this: 

for the hour is coming, 

in the which all that are in the graves 

shall hear his voice,

29 And shall come forth; 

they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;

 and they that have done evil, 

unto the resurrection of damnation.

John 11:25

King James Version

25 Jesus said unto her, 

I am the resurrection, 

and the life: 

he that believeth in me, 

though he were dead, 

yet shall he live:

John 14:1-4

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled:

ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions:

 if it were not so, I would have told you. 

I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, 

I will come again, and receive you unto myself; 

that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, 

and the way ye know.

Romans 2:5-11

King James Version

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart 

treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath 

and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing 

seek for glory and honour and immortality, 

eternal life:

8 But unto them that are contentious, 

and do not obey the truth, 

but obey unrighteousness, 

indignation and wrath,

9 Tribulation and anguish, 

upon every soul of man that doeth evil, 

of the Jew first, 

and also of the Gentile;

10 But glory, honour, and peace, 

to every man that worketh good, 

to the Jew first, 

and also to the Gentile:

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

Romans 14:10-12

King James Version

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? 

or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? 

for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

11 For it is written, 

As I live, saith the Lord, 

every knee shall bow to me, 

and every tongue shall confess to God.

12 So then every one of us 

shall give account of himself to God.

1 Corinthians 15:51

King James Version

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; 

We shall not all sleep, 

but we shall all be changed,

2 Corinthians 5:8

King James Version

8 We are confident, I say, 

and willing rather to be absent from the body, 

and to be present with the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

King James Version

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, 

concerning them which are asleep, 

that ye sorrow not,

 even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, 

even so them also which sleep in Jesus 

will God bring with him.

1 Thessalonians 4:16

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Hebrews 9:27

King James Version

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, 

but after this the judgment:

James 4:14

King James Version

14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour,

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.

1 Peter 1:3

King James Version

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

which according to his abundant mercy 

hath begotten us again unto a lively hope 

by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Revelation 20:4-5

King James Version

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, 

and judgment was given unto them: 

and I saw the souls of them 

that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, 

and for the word of God, 

and which had not worshipped the beast, 

neither his image, 

neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, 

or in their hands; 

and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again 

until the thousand years were finished. 

This is the first resurrection.

Revelation 20:6

King James Version

6 Blessed and holy is he 

that hath part in the first resurrection: 

on such the second death hath no power, 

but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, 

and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Revelation 20:11-12

King James Version

11 And I saw a great white throne, 

and him that sat on it, 

from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; 

and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, 

small and great, 

stand before God; 

and the books were opened: 

and another book was opened, 

which is the book of life: 

and the dead were judged out of those things 

which were written in the books, 

according to their works.

Revelation 20:13

King James Version

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it;

 and death and hell delivered up the dead 

which were in them: 

and they were judged every man 

according to their works.

Revelation 20:15

King James Version

15 And whosoever was not found written 

in the book of life 

was cast into the lake of fire.
