Proverbs 12:28 KJV
In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
The Bible gives us a fantastic promise in this verse; there is a pathway that does not include death.
We do know that Hebrews 9:27 KJV says
.... it is appointed unto men once to die....
And this death is inevitable for all but one generation of believers who will experience the rapture of the Christians to heaven.
Nevertheless there is one path with not death.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:14 KJV
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
There is just one path that leads to life. On this path the death that we must all face will one day be destroyed.
1 Corinthians 15:54 KJV
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
And we, who have trusted Jesus Christ, will one day dwell with Christ in a place where there is no death.
Revelation 21:3-4 KJV
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
The pathway thereof is strait and narrow, but well worth the walk.
