In The Meantime

September 3, 2023

There are three days that we believe are the most important days on the calendar of any believer. There is what I call our “birthday.” By that I mean you come to the realization that you are a sinner and you need a Savior. So you repent of your sins, place your faith in Jesus, and surrender to Him as the Lord of your life. You are “born-again.” The second day is what I call “moving day.” That is the day we die, the day that we transition from this earth to be with the Lord. And then the third day is what I call “resurrection day.” That is when our bodies are raised from the dead and we receive a brand-new body, an eternal body. With all of that in mind, we must consider this question, “What happens in the meantime between moving day and resurrection day?” That’s exactly what we’re going to look at today.

Topics: Eternal Life, Life

In this series

From Here To Eternity

Death is a scary concept for a lot of people. As believers, we have a lot of hope that death is not the end for us, but that doesn’t mean that death isn’t scary or unnerving at all. And because it is such a morbid topic, many people don’t like to talk about death and the topics surrounding it. But in this series called “From Here To Eternity,” we aren’t going to shy away from the conversation. We are going to explore what the Word of God says about what happens at death, what happens after death, between death, and the time when we believe Jesus will return.

Bible Reference

For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling,
if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked.
For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord,
for we walk by faith, not by sight.
Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
