Death: For the Unbeliever,
Death is universal; all life faces death. God is the sole exception, although believers who are alive at the return of Christ in the air for His church will not taste physical death. Nevertheless, God has pronounced physical death as a result of sin. Consequently sin is universal. Physical death deals with the body only and does not mean the cessation of existence. Upon physical death the spirit and the soul live independently of the body but will be reunited with their bodies at the resurrection. Nevertheless, the death of an unbeliever is different in many aspects to that of the believers. Death still remains a universal reality. Are you prepared for death? Are you prepared to meet the Maker and Master of all?
