When his good friend Lazarus died,Jesus said to his disciples: "Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep." But Jesus didn't mean that Lazarus was resting. Jesus further said: "Lazarus has died." (John 11:11-14) so Jesus compared death to sleep. He didn't say that Lazarus was in heaven or with his family members who had died.And he didn't say that Lazarus was suffering in hell or being reborn as another human or an animal. No,it was as if Lazarus were in a deep sleep.other Scriptures compare death to a deep sleep.The Bible says that when Stephen was killed,"he fell asleep in death."(Acts 7:60)The apostle Paul also wrote that some Christians had"fallen asleep in death."_1 Corinthians 15:6. 8Did God create Adam and Eve so that they would eventually die?no!Jehovah created them to enjoy life forever with perfect health. When Jehovah made humans, he gave them the desire to live forever.(Ecclesiastes 3:11) parents do not want to see their children grow old and die,and Jehovah feels the same way about us.But if God created us to live forever,why do we die?

Jesus make us understand in the scriptures that, he did not want us to die in sin, he won't us to be a born again Christian, Jesus make us to know that everyone on earth will die one day, but what we need is to pray for long life .

"As the children are partakers of flesh and blood, [Jesus] also himself likewise took part of the same that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." (Hebrews 2:14-15)
Trent jerked up into a sitting position, suddenly wide awake. His heart pounded, and he was breathing hard and fast as if he had been running. "It was just a bad dream," he told himself, rubbing his eyes. "Just another dream."
Ever since his grandfather's funeral last week, Trent had had a bad dream almost every night. He would wake up thinking about Grandpa lying so still and silent in that big box. He would think about the quiet cemetery where they had buried the big box in the ground. And then he would start to get scared. What if his mom or his dad died too? What if he died? What would it be like?
Have you ever felt like Trent? The Bible tells us that the fear of death is something all humans have in common. But the Bible also says that we do not have to be slaves to this fear.
Would you be afraid of something that had no power to hurt you--like a dead leaf or a falling snowflake? Of course not. Did you know that Jesus Christ has made death just as powerless as these things for the Christian? Hebrews 2 tells us that when Jesus died on the cross, He destroyed the power of death. He destroyed Satan's ability to keep us living in the fear of death all of our lives. He died to deliver us, not only from slavery to sin, but also from slavery to fear.
To those who do not know Jesus as their Savior, death is an uncertain and frightening thing. But Jesus promised that whoever believes on Him as He has commanded will not see death (John 8:51). The believer's body will die, but he will be resurrected on the last day at the second coming of Jesus , never ever to die again , and will be with Jesus forever.
If you have believed on Jesus Christ, He is your Savior. He died that you might be able to live forever with Him. Even though we don't understand exactly what death is like, we who know Jesus do not need to be afraid of it. He has conquered death for us forever.
Jesus Christ has conquered death, and Christians do not need to fear it.

what Jesus said about death. I shall not die but live to proclaim the work of God almighty. in the book of John chapter 5 vs 24. verily verily I say to you. he that hears my word. and believe on him that sent me. has everlasting life. and shall not come into condemnation but is passed from death to life .11 vs 11-14. these things said he. and after that he said to them our friends Lazarus sleep. but I go. that I may awake him out of sleep (12) then said his disciples. lord. if he sleep. he shall do well. (13) however Jesus spoke of his death. but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep (14) then said Jesus to them plainly. Lazarus is dead. .
