The Final Curtain

Death can't be cheated,but it can be defeated.
As much a we'd like to avoid the subject of death, it's hard not to think about it. Is death the final curtain? Or is it possible to cheat death? Is all this business about living forever a bunch of nonsense, or is it the truth? Many people believe there's nothing after death, but the Bible teaches otherwise(Heb. 9:27).
The biggest authority in the world is Jesus. From the time His lifelong friend, John, was heheaded,to the time Jesus was put to death on the cross,Jesus knew death. Yet He also knew that He would ultimately defeat death, and not just for Himself, but for all who believe in Him. When you put your life in Christ,you can be sure that physical death isn't final. Because of His resurrection from the dead, we can defeat death just as Jesus did.
" I am the resurrection and the life.
Those  who believe in me,
even though they die like like everyone else,will live again.
They  are given eternal life for believing in me
and will never perish."
JOHN 11:25-26
