Unless Jesus returns first, everyone is going to die. But then what? In the first installment of our new series, “Afterlife”, Pastor Jeff teaches on the subject of death and dying and drawing from Hebrews 9:27 and Luke 16:19-24, lays a Biblical foundation answering this question, explains why this subject is so important, what is at stake, and why we desperately need to get it right.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. Luke 16:19-24
