"Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the the fear of the Lord all the day; For surely there is a hereafter, and you hope will not be cut off." - Proverbs 23 V17
"But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep." - 1 Corinthians 15 V20
Christ died on the cross for all people, and He rose from the dead and He became the firstfruits of all those who died trusting and believing in the Lord. Now we who believe in the Lord have the similar hope, that is, absent from the body we will be present with the Lord. Our hope continues to live and will not be cut off. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
