Here are 5 short stories from Scripture about Tombstones in the Bible
The Death of Death – Revelation 21
The day is coming when death shall be no more, as the Bible says, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4). Things like pain, suffering, mourning, and death will finally end someday, and for me, it can’t come soon enough.
Never Forsaken – Hebrews 13 and Isaiah 46
Everyone else may forsake us, but the Lord never will…even into old age, as Scripture says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). Elderly residents in nursing homes might fear God has left them or when the elderly lose their capacity to think correctly, it doesn’t matter…God will not forsake them, even into old age (Isaiah 46:4).
No Separation – Romans 8
Whoever trusts in God, will never be separated from Him. Paul was certain “that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39). I think that covers it! There is no way a believer can be separated from God…even by death.
Jesus told Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live” (John 11:25). He said this right after Lazarus had died, but Martha knew enough theology that Lazarus would rise again on the last Great Day. That’s because Jesus has resurrection power over death, so even if we die, we will live again. Remember, God is the God of the living and not the dead (Luke 20:38).
A Wide Path – John 14
The disciples were troubled that Jesus was going away, but He promised them, and I believe He promises us, that “In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2)? He is at this moment, preparing a place for you. I hope you believe that.
