Our Spiritual Destiny: Death and the Hereafter

Death is inescapable for us all, but in that death, we may also have the hope of something wonderful and greater than what we have experienced here on Earth. Our Spiritual Destiny: Death and the Hereafter explores what the Bible has to say about

Why people die, and what is promised to us beyond the grave

Example from the Old Testament and what the Bible declared as the fate of Old Testament saints

How Jesus described the hereafter

God has many promises for those who trust Him by faith for a better life beyond the grave. This is why the apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Thessalonian church: "But I would not have you be ignorant, brethren, concerning them that are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others who have no hope" (1 Thessalonians 4:13).
