The issue of what happens to us when we die is one that grips the attention of most of us at some time or other. The older we get the more we find it demanding our serious consideration. This can also apply to younger people who suffer life-threatening or serious injuries or illnesses. Is it to be the same eventual outcome for everyone, or not? Is death the immediate gateway to another life. Is it to be heavenly bliss or torment in hell – or neither?
Bible teaching about life after death is neither falsely over-optimistic nor gloomy and depressing. It’s impressively rational and realistic. The Bible faces up to the realities of our human nature but also offers a wonderful hope for the future for those prepared to respond to its teaching and act upon its advice.
The Bible reveals that bodily resurrection at the future time of Christ’s second coming, followed by divine judgement to determine who is worthy, or unworthy, to receive the gift of eternal life, is the one and only hope of life after death. The crucially important issue therefore is to define what we must do to be held accountable for divine assessment at this momentous time and to have hope of the gracious gift of eternal life in God’s future Kingdom on earth.
