What does the Bible say about Death? What happens when we die according to the Word of God? We will all experience death in life and the loss of loved ones. Grief is a normal emotion yet feels completely foreign as we experience it. The reality of loss reminds us of our mortality and the longing for more.
God has promised to be with us and to provide us peace in the midst of pain. His word in the Bible also provide us with comfort of eternal life in heaven for those who have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. We have collected Scriptures that can help you process the grief of death as well as Bible verses about life after death. Find peace and resolution in the love and divinity of God from the Bible.
A Prayer in the Midst of Death and Loss: Our hearts are grieving with those who are hurting, for those who have lost loved ones, for those who have suffered such great tragedy at the hands of evil. We ask that you would be their Comforter, that you would cover them with your grace and mercy, surrounding them in peace during this dark time. Thank you God that you are surely with usâ€¦thank you that you careâ€¦thank you that your Presence is closeâ€¦and that you weep with those who weep. We need you. We know and believe beyond any doubt, that your power and love will never fail. Amen.

1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going."
51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed- 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." 55 "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
4 When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. 5 Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God. 6 He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them- he remains faithful forever.
