The Fear of Death

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

The fear of death can steal the joy of our salvation. The words “Fear not” appears in the Bible 365 times. In the world today many are fearful of the reality of death. God desires for each believer to conquer this fear by depending totally on our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. In Christ, we are able to overcome the fear of death and by faith in Him, our hearts are filled with joy.

John 6:15-2115 Jesus therefore knowing that they were going to come and seize him, that they might make [him] king, departed again to the mountain himself alone.16 But when evening was come, his disciples went down to the sea,17 and having gone on board ship, they went over the sea to Capernaum. And it had already become dark, and Jesus had not come to them,18 and the sea was agitated by a strong wind blowing.

19 Having rowed then about twenty-five or thirty stadia, they see Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the ship; and they were frightened.20 But he says to them, It is I: be not afraid.21 They were willing therefore to receive him into the ship; and immediately the ship was at the land to which they went.”

Proverbs 3:5-6Confide in Jehovah with all thy heart, and lean not unto thine own intelligence;in all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will make plain thy paths.”

Psalm 16:11 “Thou wilt make known to me the path of life: thy countenance is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.”

Psalms 23:4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.”

Psalms 18:16-1716 He reached forth from above, he took me, he drew me out of great waters:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me; for they were mightier than I.”

Psalms 46:1-3God is our refuge and strength, a help in distresses, very readily found.Therefore will we not fear though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the heart of the seas;Though the waters thereof roar [and] foam, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.”

Psalm 27:1 “Jehovah is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

Hebrews 2:14-1514 Since therefore the children partake of blood and flesh, he also, in like manner, took part in the same, that through death he might annul him who has the might of death, that is, the devil; 15 and might set free all those who through fear of death through the whole of their life were subject to bondage.”

Isaiah 41:1313 For I, Jehovah, thy God, hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”

Romans 6:3-4Are you ignorant that we, as many as have been baptised unto Christ Jesus, have been baptised unto his death?We have been buried therefore with him by baptism unto death, in order that, even as Christ has been raised up from among [the] dead by the glory of the Father, so *we* also should walk in newness of life.”

Colossians 3:1-4If therefore ye have been raised with the Christ, seek the things [which are] above, where the Christ is, sitting at [the] right hand of God:have your mind on the things [that are] above, not on the things [that are] on the earth;for ye have died, and your life is hid with the Christ in God.When the Christ is manifested who [is] our life, then shall *ye* also be manifested with him in glory.”
