TRYING TO GRASP THE DEATH OF A YOUNG WOMAN
I KNOW THE BIBLE A LITTLE BIT, AND DEATH IS SOMETHING THAT WE RECEIVED THROUGH ADAM AND EVES SIN, THERE DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD,JEHOVAH. BEHIND THE FALLEN ANGEL, WHO IS NOW KNOW AS SATAN THE DEVIL. HE WANTED JEHOVAH'S POWER ...
Why is there death?
God originally created a perfect universe (Genesis 1:31). There was no death until Adam disobeyed God by eating the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3). Because of Adam's rebellion (sin), God cursed His creation with death and suffering.
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
Although there was no death in the beginning, we now suffer and sorrow in a world cursed with death. The good news is that the Bible tells of a future time when there will again be no death.
And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.
However God has conquered death through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus became a man and paid the price for man’s sin by dying on a cross. He conquered death by raising from the dead. Anyone who places their trust in the complete work of Christ has the hope of eternal life when their Earthly life is finished.
REASONING WHY WE DIE AND WHY THERE IS SIN
God placed Adam and Eve in a perfect paradise. As their Creator, He had authority over them. In His authority, God gave Adam a rule: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” (Genesis 2:17).
Sometime after God declared His completed creation “very good” at the end of the sixth day, one of God’s angels, Lucifer, led a rebellion against their Creator.3 Lucifer then took on the form of a serpent and tempted Eve to eat the fruit God had forbidden. Both Adam and Eve ate it. Their actions resulted in the punishment that God had warned them about. God is holy and cannot tolerate sin in His presence. The just Creator righteously kept His promise that punishment would follow their disobedience. With the rebellious actions of one man, death entered God’s creation.
Ashamed and afraid, Adam and Eve tried to escape the consequences of their sin by making coverings of fig leaves. But by themselves, they could not cover what they had done. They needed something else to provide a covering. According to the writer of Hebrews, “Without shedding of blood, there is no remission [of sin]” (Hebrews 9:22). A blood sacrifice was necessary to cover their guilt before God.
To illustrate the horrible consequences of sin, God killed an animal and made coats of skin to cover Adam and Eve. We are not told what type of animal was killed, but perhaps it was something like a lamb to symbolize Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who would shed His own blood to take away our sins.
Genesis 3 also reveals that the ground was cursed. Thorns and thistles were now part of the world. Animals were cursed, the serpent more than the rest. The world was no longer perfect but sin-cursed. Suffering and death now abounded in that once-perfect creation.
If it was Adam’s decision to disobey God that brought sin into the world, why do we all have to suffer punishment?
After Adam and Eve sinned and were banished from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:20–24), they began to have children. Each child inherited Adam’s sinful nature, and each child rebelled against his or her Creator. Every human is a descendant of Adam and Eve, born with the same problem: a sinful nature.
If we are honest with ourselves, we will realize that Adam is a fair representative for all of us. If a perfect person in a perfect place decided to disobey God’s rules, none of us would have done better. The Apostle Paul writes, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned” (Romans 5:12).
As children of Adam, we all inherit Adam’s sin We must understand that not one of us is innocent before God. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Not one of us is worthy to stand before the Creator of the universe because we would each bring a sinful, rebellious nature into His presence.
DEATH IS HORRIBLE TOTALLY HORRIBLE THERE IS NO RITE OR GOOD WAY TO LOOK AT IT,....
