    2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
  • Lily
    To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord
  • A disciple
    Hb; Paul said, Absent from the body, and present with the Lord. Solomon wrote, The spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth; and, Then shall the spirit return to God that gave it. The rich man dies and is buried, and immediately lifts up his eyes in the torment of fire in hell; while Lazarus was carried by the Angels into Abraham's bosom.
  • Hb
    Where and why do most people believe that when their loved ones die, they automatically go to heaven? The Bible only speaks of the resurrection on the last day of when Christ returns. It also states the dead know nothing but are asleep.
  • A disciple
    "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" The greatest Word which the Lord Jesus has said to us, is the one most often having the least thought about and attention given and that is of ETERNAL LIFE! We may at times over our lives have "moments" of clarity, or fleeting glimpses of eternal reality for this whole existence is shrouded in vanity and vexation of spirit but there is a day coming to each and every one of us when we die, and will be awoken from this dream state! We want to be healthy and strong in this life, and not always be hunted by troubles and threats from the devil but how much can we really expect from such a ruin and alienated from God world, even if we had no adversity? This world and our present existence in it is decaying, and must at one point be taken away for ever for this is NOT God's final and glorious plan for man, in this world as it is! But we have a Word from the Son of God Himself, that we are not of this world, but have been chosen and called from out of it, and that we belong to God, and He has given us Jesus, to be with Him in glory and live for ever.

    To Greg: I like your comment; Gal.2:21 is another verse to go with it.
