IF YOU ARE BORN AGAIN YOU SHALL NOT BE AWAY FROM GOD EVER AGAIN

IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN, YOU SHALL NOT TASTE DEATH AND DEATH HAS NO POWER OVER YOU.

Jesus said, "If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death." Jn 8:52

Jesus said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life." Jn 5:24

John said, "We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers." 1 Jn 3:14

John said, "Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years." Rev 20:6

Because we all sin and fall short of God's glory, we have the wrath of God stored up against us. But when we have an obedient faith in Christ, we are born again in the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit (Tit 3:5; Col 2:11-13). With that salvation, our names are written in the book of life and unless we turn away from God, we remain in that grace until we enter heaven. The judgment day in the future and the second death (first was mentioned above which all sinners experience, i.e. spiritual death) which is hell is only for those who have not been born again or, as John puts it, have taken part in the first resurrection. 


It's such good news to know that we are redeemed and heading to heaven. To be born again means adoption into God's family. It means you that forever you are redeemed and will enjoy the eternal joy and rest of heaven. Death is separation from Him. The second Death is hell. The born again shall not see it.
