The story of the Bible is that God has “swallowed up death for all time.” The great deposit on this promise was the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It was an earnest not just on the resurrection of some from the dead – but of all. For the prophet Isaiah who promised on God’s behalf the swallowing of death went on in his next breath to say that God would “wipe tears away from all faces.” The only way that all faces could be so comforted is if all human beings were redeemed from death.
If you’d like to be assured on this point, see Everyone Is Going to Heaven. In the meantime, live in the peace that death is nothing more than a transition to a different manner of life. Jesus Christ has guaranteed this outcome so you can count on it!
