Death for the believer is no longer just death...It is sleep. When we die, we fall asleep in Jesus, laying away this house of clay for a little while. Deaths means going to be with Jesus-Which is far better. Like sleep, death for us is temporary and has its awakening. PoP

Christ controls death "He has the keys of death and Hades" Think of it! The devil doesn't have the keys to his own house! The keys are a symbol of authority, of control, of possession rule. As terrible as it is death is not allowed to run rampant without control. Nothing happens by chance. All history lies in the elective purpose of All Mighty God. Even death is in the hands of God. It moves only at the permissive will of Heaven.

Christ holds the key to the door of death, and no man enters it unless Christ uses the key and opens it.

Christ conquered death. "I was dead, and behold, I am alive for ever more." Death for Christians isn't permanent or final. Death will not hold us forever. Christ died and survived the grave and because He lives we shall live also...Christ shares His victory with us.

Luke 2:29
Sovereign Lord, as you have promised you now dismiss your servant in peace.

Ephesians 5:14
Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

2 Peter 1:11
and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Some glad morning when this life is o'er, I'll fly away.
To a home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away. Will you?
