Absent in the Body, Present with the Holy

Post  fennywest on Thu 07 Jan 2010, 4:52 pm


Some Go early, others Go late
But when or how does not matter
Forcefully or peacefully
What matters is dying in faith
And finishing your race well.

Safe across the other side
To meet with the Lord and the hosts
Waiting for you and I who still remain
To join or wait for the trumpet call
When the dead in Christ will rise first.

Rejoice, our Saviour owns the Land
On both sides of the sea!
That is why we will not be afraid
we know He is in control
We will not die before our time.

He will continue to guide,
Counsel, protect and provide.
Precious in His sight is the death
Of His saint, absent in the body
But present with the Lord.








2Co:5:6: Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

2Co:5:8: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

"Them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him."-1 Thessalonians 4:14

1Th:4:16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

1Th:4:17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

These all died in faith."-Hebrews 11:13

"I will strengthen thee."-Isaiah 41:10

Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it."-1 Thessalonians 5:24

"Forget not all His benefits."-Psalm 103:2

This is so beautiful. We need not fear death.
Proverbs 12:28 "The path of the godly leads to life. So why fear death?" - The Living Bible
