Death Shall be No More?


What does the bible passage mean when it says '' death shall be no more'' ??????

God bless you! :D


You need to give the reference for that Scripture quote and more of the context, because that will determine the meaning.

However, in relationship to the New Testament, after the second coming of Christ there will be a bodily resurrection and a final judgement. There will be no more bodily death, our bodies and souls will be re-united, and we will live forever. The just to their eternal reward, the unjust to their eternal damnation.


It’s found in Revelation 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow , nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” The beginning of the chapter is "Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, Also there was no more sea.
vs 2 "Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.


Another I thought of; *1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
Also, just an FYI many who have that exact phrase leap to mind don’t realize that it is in a poem by John Donne called “Death be not Proud”

Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those whom thou thinkst thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow
And soonest our best men with thee do go
Rest of their bones and soul’s delivery.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppies or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than thy stroke. Why swellst thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die!
