“Set Your House In Order” WHY? “For you shall die and not live. ” 2 Kings 20: 1
“You Shall Die” Spoken to an individual, but universally true. – Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned (Rom. 5: 12). – For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive (1 Cor. 15: 22). Disease Accident Suicide Murder Decay
What Death Means Severance of all earthly ties. “For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband” (Rom. 7: 2). Last earthly act before Judgment. “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Heb. 9: 27). “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 Cor. 5: 10).
No Escape From Death All things come alike to all: One event happens to the righteous and the wicked; To the good, the clean, and the unclean; To him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As is the good, so is the sinner; He who takes an oath as he who fears an oath. This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead (Eccl. 9: 1 -2).
What Death Means Eternal Life Not the end of life. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also (Jas. 2: 26). Just the end of life in the fleshly body. I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder, knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent (2 Pet. 1: 13 -14). For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (2 Cor. 5: 1).
