Life After Death
What Happens When You Die?
This sermon series answers questions about the afterlife. What happens when you die? What will you look like in the afterlife? What will Jesus do when he returns to earth?
What happens when you die? An Auckland Herald Poll conducted in late 2004 showed that 62% of New Zealanders believe in an after life. Worldwide, the figure is over 70%. God has set eternity in our hearts and people have an innate desire to return to the paradise lost in the Garden of Eden. Though they may believe in an afterlife, the true details are still unknown to many. Is there life after death?
What Will You Look Like In The Afterlife?
(NLT) “The time is coming when all the dead in their graves will hear the voice of God’s Son and they will rise again. Those who have done good will rise to eternal life, and those who have continued in evil will rise to judgment.” Jesus stated there would be a resurrection of all people. The Bible doesn’t describe unbelievers’ resurrection bodies, but they will be suited to hell. However, it does detail the believer’s resurrection body. So what it is it like?
What Happens When You Stand Before God?
All will die someday. At death, the spirit leaves the body and goes to hell or heaven. When Christ returns to earth, dead believers are raised from the dead with glorious new bodies reunited with their spirits. We groan (not moan) in our present bodies. Christ reigns for 1000 years. Then everyone else is raised and judged.
A New Heaven And Earth
In this series, we have journeyed through the rapture, the return of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead and the final judgment. After all this, God will create new heavens and a new earth. Then the heavenly city, New Jerusalem, will come down out of heaven upon the new earth.
