In this episode of Ask Pastor John, John Piper discusses what happens, where we will goe as soon as we Die.
We often say that our dead loved ones are “with Jesus now.” But Paul seems to say that Christians will meet Jesus at the second coming. Which is it?
2 Corinthians 5:6-9 6Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the LORD. 7For we live by faith, not by sight. 8We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the LORD. 9So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
To die is to lose the body temporarily and to be with the Lord.
Philippians 1: 22 22If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!
