Life After Death: Is There Such A Thing?
Have you ever wondered what happens to the human body after it dies? Is there really life after death? Depending on one’s religious beliefs, there are many speculations about where our body will go after it is buried. In some religions, it is believed that the body will continue to exist but in the spiritual realm. Still some believe that the body will be reincarnated and goes through the same cycle again.
Is there an afterlife? The moment we die, our soul is separated from the body and returns to God. So where does the spirit go? If you lived a sinful life and rejected God while you were living, your spirit will go to a lonely, dark, and miserable world because of your separation with God. On the other hand, acceptance means a life full of bliss and joy together with God.
There are many Biblical accounts that depict life after death. Matthew 27:52 reads “And the tombs were opened and the bodies of those who died were raised to life.” This means that when Jesus came back to life, many of those who died before him had already received a new life.
Daniel 12: 2-3 states “And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And the wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and they turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”
Matthew 13:40-43 speaks of the so-called “the end of this age.” In this passage, those who did well during their lifetime would “shine” brightly as the sun while those who did otherwise will be sent into a furnace of fire.
There is really no clear picture as to what life is really after death. Perhaps the most popular belief is that the human body will end up in two places either in heaven or hell. The former is described as a perfect place of peace and joy with God. The latter, on the other hand, is a place of torment and despair.
Regardless of whether there is indeed life after death or not, we should always make it a point to do good things for our fellowmen. For indeed there is a great reward that will await us if we do.
