Revelation 14:13 says, ”And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”
When we are living in the Lord and we die, it is a blessing, a time of rest, a reward. When we die in the Lord our work is done and we move on to the eternal reward. This passage was written to a group of people who were being persecuted for their Christianity, yet through death they were victors. When we trust God but living in Christ, then physical death is the end of our suffering and work and the beginning of our blessings.
