Every person ever born will die. World wide 162,000 die every day and 358,000 are born. People will die in 2 conditions - SAVED OR LOST. The saved will go to HEAVEN and the lost will go to HELL. Several years ago, the parents and grandparents of all mankind died (ADAM AND EVE). SINCE then men and women and children have been dying.
ROMANS 1:28-32 Even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient, being filled with all unrighteousness fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy murder, debate deceit, malignity, whispers. Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful. I, Who, knowing the judgment of God that they which commit such things are WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Some people deserve to die because of their immoral wickedness that is why we have the death penalty. We also have prisons to put them in so they will not harm others.
I Cor 15:20-28 , But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die in his own order, Christ the firstfruits, afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father, when he shall have put down all rule, and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him. God wants to be a part of all men. When man goes to church and becomes a Christian God dwells in him.
James 1 12-18. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation, for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God, for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither temptheth he any man. But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin, and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every GOOD AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS from above, and cometh down from the father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
MATTHEW 16:16-19 Simon Peter said, JESUS YOU ARE THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. Jesus said unto him, blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona, for flesh and blood hath not reveled it unto thee, but my Father which is heaven, And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Verse 18 in another translation says, on this rock foundation I will build my church and not even death can pull you out of my church. So everybody needs to become a member of the church so they can go to heaven.
