Beauty is relative based on perception.Two things can be said to be beautiful yet they are not the same or they are different sides of the same puzzle.Life and Death are beautiful depending on your perception
The beauty of Life lies in the endless opportunities and possibilities it presents to Mankind to develop and reach his/her highest potential called *”DESTINY”* while Death’s beauty lies in its power to transfer/transform man’s pursuit of “endless opportunities and possibilities” from one reality into another which is a reminder to Mankind that Life is a journey and that Journey continues in different form with different rules and regulations but with the same fundamental which “fulfilling destiny”.
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee,…”
Before we are born, God sets out our journey, our destination and our path in reaching the set goal.
Knowing that we certainly will forget when we arrive on earth, He sent His Son Jesus to show us the way and help us along the way.Hence Jesus said in John 14:6
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”
And said in Matthew 11:28
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”
Jesus came to remind us of the journey, direct us on the proper paths of the journey and keep guiding us till we reach our destination…Hebrews 13:5
“…. for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
When we accept Jesus and walk/work in His righteousness and command in Holiness, the beauty of death becomes evident as being a “PASSAGEWAY” to another realm of existence to continue and complete the journey.
Apostle Paul understood this, hence he said in Philippians 1:21-23
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain”
“But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.”
“For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:”
Death was not the end of all things but the continuation and completion of Destiny.
You are afraid of death; you see death as a ugly and frightful event because you with do not have Jesus or you are lying about loving Jesus but still living in “SIN”
Stop fearing death by loving Jesus.Death is beautiful when you have Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.So from the perceptive of Jesus, Death is beautiful.
