Does Life Exist After Death?

Does Life Exist After Death?  To the Believer in Christ, yes it certainly does.  To the nonbeliever, it most certainly does.  As a nurse, I have heard stories of people dieing and having seen the other side.  The believer in Christ described life after death as a place of peace and love.  To the nonbeliever a place of fear.  One man that had died in the ER said that he left his body, because he could see it lying on the table as the nurses and doctor worked on him.  I asked him to describe what it felt like.  He said he felt no pain only a complete sense of peace.  Others have described their experience as feeling love that they had never experienced before.  One man said he felt the presence of God with him, and that he felt God talking to him, not with words but through thoughts.

Why is it so important to believe in the Almighty God?  If you are a nonbeliever you have no hope at all.  Even if you don't believe in hell or Satan, you have no hope.  What good is that to think that simply life ends at the time of death?  I want to tell you that there is a hope and a reasurance that God exist and that he loves us.

Satan or some people call the devil is real.  He once lived with God as an angel.  He wanted glory for himself and God cast him out of Heaven.  Now his days are numbered and he is walking to and fro on the earth looking for those he may devour.  (1 Peter 5:8 and Job 1:7)

Heaven is a real place that was prepared by God for his people.  He said that anyone that called upon his name shall be saved.  This doesn't simply mean just to say his name but to believe in him.  God teaches us through his word (Bible) that "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neighter have entered into the hearts of man, the things that God hath prepared for those that love him. (1 Corinth 2:9)

In Revelations Chapter 21 it gives us a glimpse of what Heaven will look like.  See below:

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
