For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 1 Thessalonians 4:14 (KJV)
The language that God communicates is very vital in understanding the scriptures. Jesus Christ sees those who die in him as sleeping (John 11:11); the reason is that He sees eternal life in them, therefore, they are not dead but alive. Believers should embrace the language of God and refrain from weeping and wailing for the dead in Christ as though they have no hope. In Christ, death is a choice because the just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17). Share your thoughts here!
