Death And The Christian (Some Comforting Bible Verses.)


Active member
I plan to post about 11 Bible verses (or passages) that give we Christians
great comfort for the soul when it comes our time to actually experience
the death of our present physical bodies.

I hope you, the reader, will add your thoughts and/or any of your fave
Bible verses that relate to the Death Of Christians.


"If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord.
So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord."
Romans 14:8

And THAT is win-win.

The Death Of Lazarus
"Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in
me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will
never die.
John 11:23-26


"The righteous perish,
and no one takes it to heart;
the devout are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death."
Isaiah 57:1-2


"I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood
cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable
inherit the imperishable.

Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all
be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised
imperishable, and we will be changed.

For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and
the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed
with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the
saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed
up in victory.

“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus
1 Cor. 15:50-57


To the thief on the cross:
"Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
Luke 23:43

My interpretation: The word paradise is another word for Heaven.

we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven,
not built by human hands"

Absent From The Body Is To Be At Home With The Lord:

"We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away
from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make
it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in
the body or away from it."
2 Cor 5:8-9
When We Christians Die, We Gain. We Lose Nothing Of
Permanent Value.

be with Christ, which is better by far"

"After this it was noised abroad that Mr. Valiant-for-truth was
taken with a summons, by the same post as the other; and had
this for a token that the summons was true, “That his pitcher was
broken at the fountain.”

When he understood it, he called for his friends, and told them of it.

Then, said he, I am going to my Father’s; and though with great
difficulty I have got hither, yet now I do not repent me of all the
trouble I have been at to arrive where I am.

My sword I give to him that shall succeed me in my pilgrimage,
and my courage and skill to him that can get it.

My marks and scars I carry with me, to be a witness for me that I
have fought His battles who will now be my rewarder.

When the day that he must go hence was come, many accompanied
him to the river-side, into which as he went, he said, “Death, where
is thy sting?”

And as he went down deeper, he said, “Grave, where is thy victory?”

So he passed over, and all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side.
... John Bunyan (1628-1688), The Pilgrim’s Progress [1678]

Can't add any new ones off the top of my head but I'm going to save these verses for my 90-year-old father.

I hope they will be of great comfort to him -- as they are to me
and other Christins.

God bless.
