Bible verses about early death
It is God’s will to allow some people to die early. Even though you might not know, God knows what He is doing. I’ve noticed that sometimes one death saves the lives of many just like the story of Benji Wilson.
One of the effects of sin in the world is death and it happens. Some people die early because of their own sins. God’s Word is to protect us, but many people disobey it. God tells us to be set apart from the world, but on the news I’ve seen many people get shot and die from one night of clubbing.
If they would have listened to God it would not have happened. Sometimes people die early because of their smoking sin. Sometimes teens die because of underage drinking. Sometimes people catch diseases because of sexual immorality. Remember God doesn’t cause sin, but He allows it. When we see people die at a young age it is a constant reminder that life is short and you never know when you will go.
Are you prepared? If you died today are you 100% sure that you would go to Heaven? If not please, I plead with you to click on this link. Most people are expecting Heaven, but will go to Hell. Make sure you’re saved!
What does the Bible say?
1. Isaiah 57:1-2 The righteous man perishes, and no one lays it to heart; devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from calamity. he enters into peace; they rest in their beds who walk in their uprightness.
2. Psalm 102:24-26 So I said: “Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations. In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.”
3. Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
God doesn’t cause it He allows it.
4. John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
5. 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
Sin in the world
6. Romans 5:12-13 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned – To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law.
7. Romans 5:19-21 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
8. Ecclesiastes 7:17 But don’t be too wicked or too foolish, either—why die before you have to?
9. Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
10. Romans 14:8-9 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.
Hebrews 2:9-10 What we do see is Jesus, who was given a position “a little lower than the angels”; and because he suffered death for us, he is now “crowned with glory and honor.” Yes, by God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.
