Sermons about Death
Churches are not just brick and mortar and God is the head of the church. God's word is never old or stale. It is fresh bread for a brand new day.
In the face of believers dying, Paul sends comforting words to the Thessalonians. Know what you believe, and trust in the hope that was promised. The day will come when we all believers will be together with God in Jesus Christ.
If there’s no bodily resurrection, then the Christian has no past forgiveness; no present power; no future hope. Without the resurrection, Jesus is not the divine victor; He’s the human victim. The value of faith lies in the authenticity of its object. The only way that we know that God the Father accepted Jesus’ sacrifice in our place was by the resurrection. The truth is: Christ has been raised!
We each have a choice to make. A choice for death or a choice for life.
It is a paradox that God had promised Abraham and Sarah that they would inherit the land, but three quarters of a century after receiving that promise, they are still resident aliens in a foreign land, still sojourners living in tents, where the first land that Abraham owned outright was a grave, and that real estate had cost him a tidy sum.
Hell is a location; Hell is a condition; Watch how you handle your crumbs. Watch how you handle the poor and Watch out how you handle the man of GOD.
This sermon introduces what is called 'individual eschatology'--matters of the last things that apply to the individual. In particular the hope of immediate blessedness and glory with Christ for Christians upon death. Theologians call this the intermediate state- between present life and the final, glorified/resurrected life that is held out. For Christians the hope we have is that we will be 'with the Lord'. Various scripture passages are referenced to support this. Emphasis is placed on the perfect fellowship with Christ characterizing this state.
