Precious in the sight of the Lord Is the death of His saints.
At first glance, it appears to be harsh, yet take a closer look. It brings great delight to the Lord to see his children return home to live with him. Every moment of our lives is spent on a quest to return home to our heavenly Father. To the Father and the holy angels, the instant we are rescued and recognize that Jesus is our rescuer is among the most wonderful occasions in their lives. The Bible informs us that: The angels of God rejoice in the presence of one sinner who repents, as well, I say to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in Luke 15:10.
It’s a fantastic book to read.
Luke 15:1–4 The Parable of the Lost Sheep is a story about a flock of sheep that becomes separated from its herd.
2 And the Pharisees and scribes expressed their displeasure, saying, “This Man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” So He told them a parable, saying: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that has gone missing until he finds it?
- 7 Likewise, I say to you, there will be greater joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than there will be over ninety-nine righteous people who do not require repentance.
- 8 “In the same way, what woman, in possession of ten silver coins, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she locates the coin?
- So much so that the Father is thrilled when we pass on.
- Let’s say you have a family member who has moved far away and you miss them terribly and you only get to communicate via phone calls or letters.
- Now multiply that by a number not even imagined to exist and you have just why God is thrilled by one of his children dying on this Earth.
- We are eternal spiritual beings living in a physical body that expires.
- After the fall, which caused our separation from God, it caused the decay or entropy to occur.
He said that we don’t need to be under him and we can just do what we will and be happy.
Jesus offers us a way to bypass this curse and reconnect with God through salvation in him.
Once we accept his FREE gift we can then effectively make our calls and communications with our Father again and to commune with him and be heard.
Our true home.
This life is all that there is and we need to live it to the fullest until the light goes out.
This is only the beginning, this life is a start to find our Father again and reconnect and once we do that live for him not ourselves.
Yes, not only did he warn us in advance that we will we experience tribulations and troubles on earth but, he promises us that he will bless us in this life with things for ourselves as well.
The enemy of God has us all duped into thinking this life is about us and us only.
This is a prison that is virtually impossible to break out of now in the temporal.
This system hardly leaves room for God, and so, narrow is the road to salvation to find him.
This makes the enemy very happy.
Anything the Father loves dearly is what the enemy loves and drools at to destroy, harm, kill and snatch away from him.
The real life we all live is the eternal life.
We are eternal creatures.
If we do not then, we continue in the curse even in the spiritual realms.
The truth is that God is our father and Jesus is the antidote for the injection of death and suffering we allowed by abusing that free choice God gave us.
Each time you read it you get something new revealed to you that you never saw the first time you read it.
The Bible is truly a book that is alive.
Each time you pick it up you will get what you need to hear at the right time you need to hear it.
He is thrilled that one of his children is coming home and he can love them more deeply than they have ever felt love before.
Yes, the veil was torn when Jesus died for us, allowing us to go before the throne of God to communicate and feel God’s love in our connection with him again but, when we pass from this physical state and are standing right before him, that barrier that was there is gone.
We will experience what true real love, peace and safety feel like.
We will then “get it” and we will finally feel like we are home.
We were never a mistake in a cosmic accident.
Not only is the reunion joyful and all fear, pain, tears, stress and loneliness is gone but, he has more waiting for us.
Even the joy we experience and the beauty we see here are little in comparison to the beautiful things he has prepared for us because he loves us.
It has not been seen or imagined by any human eye.
It has been my experience that people who have had near-death experiences have said things like: “I don’t know how to describe it, but it was as if color was real and genuinely alive.” It seemed as if the flowers were alive and you could sense their presence!
She compared the streets to a sheet of gold glass that was so clear that you could almost see through them due to how brilliant they were.
That demonstrates how much he cares about us.
Take a look at John 14:1-3.
There are many mansions in My Father’s home; if this were not the case, I would have informed you.
3 Moreover, if I depart to prepare a place for you, I will return to welcome you into Myself, so that where I am, you may be as well.
Being on this planet is insignificant in the larger scheme of things, and it is only a faint echo of our everlasting life.
What do you want to do with your life?
15 Instead, you could add, “If the Lord wills, we will survive and do this or that.” This is more appropriate.
We are also promised many blessings in our eternal existence that we can’t even fathom on our own dime.
God is patiently waiting for us to return home.
When we find him and freely choose to love and accept him, change our way of thinking and living, and follow Jesus, he and his holy assembly rejoice and celebrate, and the day we walk through the door of heaven and exclaim, “I’m home!”, he and the others rush to embrace us and give us the love and rest we have never known on this Earthly plane before.Never!
Finally, for those of you who may require this information, I’d want to say this: The Lord loves you more profoundly than you can possibly comprehend or comprehend fully at this time.
When you reach out to him, he will lead you and provide you with peace and comfort at the exact moment you need it.
God, on the other hand, will not.
He may or may not arrive at the precise minute you want him to, but he will undoubtedly arrive at the appropriate moment, and you will realize that the timing was correct after all. Have bravery, tranquility, and faith in your heart. You are cherished. So incredibly, incredibly loved!
Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.
Precious. -This is simply an alternate version of the line found in Psalm 72:14. But, once again, we must wonder why the psalmist should be preoccupied with thoughts of death at this particular moment. (See also the note on Psalm 115:17.) The explanation is that, according to Psalm 116:8, there has been a recent rescue from death mentioned. Initially, it is tempting to interpret this psalm as a hymn of praise for the safety, and maybe triumph, of the survivors in some fight; yet, the thankful community is bound by tradition to commemorate the victims of war.
- The death of his saints is extremely valuable in the eyes of the Lord (comp.Psalm 72:14).
- Instead, it is something that he is really concerned about.

Someone told me recently that when someone dies, an angel accompanies them into heaven (assuming that is their final destination). Is this true?
No, this isn’t simply some fanciful notion that someone came up with to make us feel better. God’s angels are said to surround and protect believers when they die, as they make their way to paradise, according to the Bible. To provide just one example, in one of His parables, Jesus described the story of a poor but devoted beggar who, when he died, was brought into paradise by the angels (see Luke 16:22). God “will direct his angels about you to watch you in all your ways,” according to the Psalmist (Psalm 91:11).
As spiritual creatures, it is easy to lose sight of God’s angels or to neglect their job; after all, they are unseen, and as such, their labor is usually overlooked.
“Are not all angels ministering spirits, assigned to assist those who will inherit salvation?” asks the Bible.
Our worship is not to be directed at angels; rather, it is to be directed toward God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
But let us give thanks to God for them, and let us live each day in the confidence that, since His angels surround us, we may place our lives and our futures in His capable and compassionate hands.
Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of His Saints
When you read the Bible, you’ll find verses like this: “The death of His saints is precious in the eyes of the Lord.” God has been greatly moved by the departure of your loved ones into everlasting life. In his understanding of death, Jesus sees himself not only as God, but also as the Creator of Eternal Life, into which your loved one has passed. Death is only visible to those who are left behind, who lament the loss of the life they have now come to miss. The arms of God embrace His saints as they return home, and the whole of heaven rejoices at their return.
- All of their days are meticulously scheduled.
- While our loved ones are moving on to eternal life, you might modify this psalm in order to provide comfort or to receive consolation for those of us who are still left behind.
- Here is a depiction to aid with the understanding of the hearing, It was He who saw you (or the loved one) before you were born, and He decreed and documented every day of your or the loved one’s existence in His book.
- With no purpose, goal, or direction, neither of these things can happen.
- You lay your hand of blessing on my head and say a blessing.
- I’ll never be able to get away from your Spirit!
- “If I go to heaven, you will be there; if I descend to the grave, you will also be there.” Yes, there is joy in heaven today, but there is grief on earth as a result of the death of a beloved family member.
- God, on the other hand, offers a blessing to His saints whose earthly parent has gone on to the other side.
- Death is so beautiful in the sight of the LORD that He even benefits those who are left behind as a result of the passing of His saints.
Is the Believer’s Death Precious to God?
I’m addressing my remarks largely to other pastors and educators. In our sermons and courses, we have a tendency to repeat scriptural words, aphorisms, interpretations, and, at times, clichés that we have heard others use in the same context. As opposed to speaking from our own study, we include into our delivery homiletical phraseology that we have learned through the years from the sermons of others, rather than speaking from our own research. This emulation is not necessarily a negative thing.
We, on the other hand, do not always take the time to examine for ourselves whether or not what we are repeating is accurate.
Consider the following: a few years ago, when presenting a message of comfort at a burial service, I included a reference to Psalm 116:15a, which states, “The death of his saints is precious in his eyes.” At the time, I was reciting the passage because it was something I had heard other pastors say during funeral services and because it speaks of God’s care for the death of his chosen ones.
- The death of God’s people does not appear to be “valuable” to him.
- If this is the case, it is possible that God is pleased for their sakes.
- When I think about it, I understand that when we are with the Lord, our fellowship is ultimately continuous and full, and it is an experience that none of us can even imagine.
- In Philippians 1:20–24, Paul explains why he will glorify Christ just as much in his life as he will in dying, despite the fact that his own personal inclination would be to go and meet with the Lord.
- According to C.
- In reality, Psalm 116:15 is one of the passages from the Bible that provided tremendous solace to the martyrs of the early church as they faced their tribulations and, at times, excruciating deaths on the road to the Lord.
- Augustine also made a lot of educated guesses regarding the relationship between the blood of the martyrs and the blood of Jesus.
- 2; Sermons 275.3; 276.4; 318.1; 329.1).
Due to the fact that Jesus died for them, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the deathofhis believers,” and thus,” Precious In The Sight Of The Lord Is The Death Of His Saints,” It is necessary to return to the text of the psalm itself, however, despite these excellent observations, in order to comprehend the meaning of the passage in its historical context.
- Psalm 116 is a celebration of the fact that God not only comforted the psalmist in his death, but also delivered him from death, which is the subject of the poem.
- Consequently, as long as I live, I shall keep calling on him since he has been courteous to me.
- I then cried out in the name of the Lord, saying: “O Lord, I implore you to save my life!” 5The Lord is kind and just, and our God is compassionate to us.
- Return, O my soul, to your place of rest, because the Lord has been gracious to you.
- The psalmist has lately been confronted with a potentially life-threatening scenario that we are not aware of.
- 1, 4), and God heard his cries and brought him to safety (vv.
He will now walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living (v.
Not only that, but the psalmist also states that he would enter the temple of the Lord in order to present a public thank offering as a testament to God’s goodness to him in rescuing his life from death later on in the book.
The cup of salvation will be lifted up in my hand, and I will call upon the name of the Lord, and I will make my vows to the Lord in the face of all his people (Ps 116:12–14).
Furthermore, when we consider the greater theology of the Psalms, it is always this same sustaining grace from God that is demonstrated in keeping the souls of God’s people alive that is celebrated and for which God’s blessings are visible.
(See Ps 27:13.) In fact, David argues with God, claiming that if God allowed him to die, it would be a terrible reflection on God himself.
Will the dust sing your praises?
(See Ps 30:9) A similar argument is made by the author of Psalm 88 in support of his own life.
Do the souls of the deceased come to you in a state of adoration?
Are your miracles recognized in the darkness, or your righteousness remembered in the land of forgetfulness?
Solomon says in Ps 72:14, “He redeems their lives from injustice and violence, and their blood is valuable in his eyes.” The term “blood” is frequently employed as a code word for “death” in the Hebrew language (e.g.,Ezek 3:18).
The fact that their “blood” or death is “valuable,” on the other hand, does not imply that they are dead, but rather that they are alive.
The solution appears to lie in the way the term “precious” has been traditionally mistranslated in the English-speaking world.
The entire psalm, according to A.
Ross (2016), can be summarized as follows: “Because the death of his saints is precious in his sight, the Lord is faithful to deliver them from suffering and premature death through his grace and compassion, so that they may acknowledge his goodness in the presence of all the saints.” “The implication is that Yhwh would thus not let their death to occur,” argues J.
- Kidner, 1973; F.-L.
- Zenger, 2011).
- This is not always the case (although, because Psalm 116 addresses the situation of anuntimelydeath, the verse may not be as fitting for the service of those dear saints who have lived out their natural lives).
- When God looks over his children at the moment of their deaths or near-death experiences, it is said that he is watching over them.
- The death of his saints is no trivial matter with God, as F.
- While it is undeniably true that the believer’s death and subsequent entrance into God’s presence is an event of inestimable value to the believer and, by God’s favor, to the Lord himself, it does not appear that this specific passage, Ps 116:15, is referring to that occurrence.
Ps 116:15, on the other hand, serves to remind us that our lives are under the loving and vigilant supervision of our Creator. There is nothing that can bring our life to an end without his knowledge or outside of his ruling authority. And we can rest assured knowing that we have done so.
Psalm 116:15 Re-Examined: Is Death “Precious” in the Lord’s Sight?
In practically every burial, a verse from the Bible is read aloud: “The death of his believers is precious in the sight of the Lord” (Psalm 116:15). It has a wonderful and lyrical ring to it. It appears to imply that death, despite how it feels, is not necessarily a negative thing in the grand scheme of things. In God’s eyes, is there any death that is truly “precious”? What exactly does this mean? Let’s take a closer look at this text. How It Is Employed I’m quite sure I’ve quoted this text at least a dozen times during funeral services.
Until recently, I interpreted this verse to indicate something along the lines of “God is happy when his saints die and return to him.” Alternatively, “In God’s eyes, the death of his saints is truly a wonderful thing and not a negative thing.” Is that really what we want to be telling people who are mourning, that God sees this as a wonderful thing?
- Is it possible that God is pleased with their loved one’s death?
- Is her death, in the eyes of God, truly a good thing for her?
- Furthermore, it is not difficult to comprehend the general idea.
- I’ll wait for you.
- In this case, it’s about being spared from death rather than about death being a positive thing.
- The psalmist is claiming that he was under the influence of death.
(See also v.
The “soul” of a person is simply his or her being, his or her existence, and his or her life.
The psalmist then announces, with rapturous acclamation, that the Lord has really saved him (vs.
As a result, the Lord saved him because the Lord is kind, just, and justly punishing him (vs.
Because he has been freed from death, the psalmist’s soul may now rest in peace (vs.
He is no longer worried or terrified in the same way he was previously.
“I shall walk before the Lord in the land of the living,” says the last line of the poem, and read it again.
The psalmist continues to express his thankfulness to God for preserving his life, and he ponders what kind of present he should send to God as a token of his appreciation.
All of this adoration is due to God’s protection from death.
Perhaps we should go a little more into the meaning of the term “precious.” It simply denotes that something is pricey, uncommon, or otherwise expensive.
Because the word is used in this context, it implies that the thing in issue is not something to be handled lightly or with ambivalence.
God holds his saints in high regard, and their deaths are considered an expensive thing in his eyes.
However, it is an extraordinarily suitable text to recite at the burial of a Christian, so it is worth mentioning (as long as its meaning is explained).
When it comes to God’s estimation, the death of a ninety-year-old is no more “costly” than the death of a twenty-something.
He takes the subject of dying very seriously.
As Christians, we have a solid assurance that God will save us all from the clutches of death.
Jesus, like Lazarus, may not be able to save us from death, but he will almost surely be able to save us from remaining dead.
Jesus is the resurrection and the life; whomever believes in him will live again, even if they die in the process (John 11:25).
Because we shall be spared from death, we no longer have a fear of death. We shall be rescued because “Gracious and just is the Lord; our God is compassionate” (Luke 16:15). (Psalm 116:5). I adore you, and God adores you as well.
When a Christian dies, should those of us who remain grieve or celebrate in his or her passing? The scriptural answer is both, and in certain cases, both at the same time. As I was memorizing my way through Philippians for the second time, I came across this in a fresh light. Philippians 2:17–18 and 2:27 are marked by an emotional difference that I had never previously recognized.
An Invitation to Rejoice
In Philippians 2:17–18, Paul refers to the prospect of his own death as a “drink offering on the sacrificial offering” of their faith, in which they have put their trust. He is willing to die in the service of enhancing and purifying their religious beliefs and practices. In the event that this occurs, Jesus declares, “I am glad and celebrate with you all.” You should feel the same way and join in my joy and happiness ” (verse 18). Not only does he express joy at the thought of his own death, but he also invites others to join him in his joy.
Presumably, this is why he believes they should join in the celebrations as well.
As a result, when Paul is “with Christ,” things will be “much better.” To his followers, Jesus used the same language he used with the crowds: “If you loved me, you would have rejoiced because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28).
What a freedom it would be when the Son’s job on earth was over and he was able to return to the Father’s majesty!
Experiencing Intense Sorrow
However, this is not the entire tale. The apostle Paul praises Epaphroditus ten verses later in Philippians 2 because “he came close to death for the sake of the gospel” (verse 30). However, he did not succumb to his injuries. And Paul is overjoyed. “Indeed, he was sick, and he was on the verge of death,” he claims. But God showed compassion on him, and not just on him, but also on me, so that I would not be burdened with sorrow upon sorrow (verse 27). God had pity on Paul, for he did not want him to suffer further pain on top of further suffering.
In other words, when Paul stated, “Rejoice with me,” at the possibility of his own death (Philippians 2:18), he wasn’t expressing the full extent of his emotions.
He was just as eager as Paul, saying, “Honor such folks, for he was on the verge of dying for the service of Christ” (2:30).
The Complex Harmony
What are the logical conclusions to be drawn from this? To summarize, our sufferings over the death of a believer are joyous sorrows, and our celebrating over the death of a believer is a sorrowful joy. Despite the sadness, there is no need to despair. And there is nothing snobbish about the excitement. The happiness is excruciating. And the sadness is tempered by the certainty of a better future. As a result, “sorrowful yet constantly rejoicing” is one of the most commonly used watchwords in the Christian life (2 Corinthians 6:10).
They occur at the same time. This isn’t a case of psychotic depression. This is the intricate harmony that exists within the Christian heart. So when a Christian dies, don’t envy the tears that flow from their eyes. And don’t underestimate the happiness that the lover is experiencing.
Do people in heaven know what’s happening with us here on earth?
DR. PAUL: DEAR FATHER PAUL: I am a sixty-seven-year-old lady who has a large number of wonderful family and friends who, I am positive, are now in Heaven since they are fellow believers with whom I share a common faith. Is it possible for these folks to observe and understand what is going on on the planet right now? What does the Bible say about this? S. M. S. M. S. M. S. M. S. M. S. M. DR. S.M.: Greetings, Dr. S.M. This is a question that pastors are frequently asked. In addition, unscrupulous charlatans have gained a lot of money throughout the years by offering to “connect” living people with the dead through séances and other means.
- Do the folks who are presently residing in Heaven have any idea what is going on on Earth?
- Unfortunately, there is very little precise language in the Bible that directly addresses this topic in its entirety.
- Even if one chooses to believe one way or another, the answer does not conflict with the fundamental beliefs of the Christian religion.
- if and when we ourselves make it to Heaven, that is.
- When a Christian dies, there is a very reassuring verse in the Bible that explains what occurs.
- Because we live by believing rather than by seeing.
- Because we shall be at home (in Heaven) with the Lord at that point.” The Lord Jesus is now dwelling in Heaven, and when a believer dies his or her spirit and soul are immediately transferred to the presence of the Lord Jesus and the other believers in Heaven.
In verses 7 and 10 of Luke 15, Jesus declares, “I tell you that.there will be greater happiness in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine good folks who do not need to repent.” Furthermore, I declare that there is gladness in the presence of God’s angels at the repentance of even one sinner.” This is according to the New Living Translation.
- So, where precisely is all of this jubilation taking place?
- So how can those in Heaven who are performing the rejoicing know when to rejoice unless they are aware that a sinner is repenting on the earth at the time of their celebration?
- It is important to note that the verse does not state that the angels are celebrating.
- These are clearly the human believers who have died and gone to heaven, and FROM HEAVEN they either witnessed (or were informed about) people repenting on the earth, and as a result of what they witnessed or were told, they are joyful in the presence of God.
- A “great cloud of witnesses” (in Heaven), according to Hebrews 12:1, and these “witnesses” are drawn from among the numerous men and women described in chapter 11 who are the departed heroes of our faith who are now residing in Heaven.
- Last but not least.
- During his ascension to Heaven, he claims to have seen and heard the spirits of those who had been slain for their beliefs, who were pleading with God to deliver retribution upon their assailants.
- To summarize, I think that persons who are now in Heaven are occasionally permitted by God to see or know things about what is happening on the planet.
- Otherwise, their eternal happiness and contentment would be jeopardized on a regular basis.
- Send it to me by email at [email protected], and I will do my best to answer it in the paper as soon as possible.
- As a retired priest, Father Paul is willing to speak to civic and religious organizations about “How We Can Know For Sure That the Bible Is Really True,” including men’s, women’s, and youth groups.
Father Paul Massey serves as Canon to the Bishop of the Mid-South Diocese of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church, which is part of the Charismatic Episcopal Church. He has been sent to the Cathedral of Christ the King in Sharpsburg, Georgia, where he will serve.
Saints In Heaven Rejoice When Sinners Repent
October 29, 2019 At 00:01h, there are no comments. The presence of the angels of God is filled with gladness as they witness the repentance of one sinner. In Luke 15:10, the Bible says Do the inhabitants of Heaven have any idea what is going on on Earth? Yes, it is correct. In Revelation 6, we witness the martyrs of the Tribulation as well as the wrath on the earth. All Christians on the face of the planet will be taken to be with the Lord at the Rapture of the Church. We shall meet with the Lord in the air, so to speak.
- A small number of individuals will be rescued during the course of those seven years, but they will pay a high price for their salvation.
- “I saw below the altar the souls of those who had been murdered because of the word of God, and because of the witness which they had kept,” John detailed what he saw in Heaven during the Tribulation (6:9).
- They were visible to John in Heaven.
- While watching from Heaven, these saints noticed that people who had slain them were still free to roam the earth.
- As a result, people were asking God, “How long are You going to allow this to continue?” “When are You going to bring judgment against those who revolt against You?” says the prophet.
- Look at what these saints in Heaven are saying in Revelation 19:1-2, just before the climactic battle of Armageddon: “Hallelujah!
- Another illustration can be found in Luke 15.
The narrative of the lost sheep is the first of the three parables.
Instead, you carefully hunt for it and are overjoyed when you finally locate it.
He loves lost people, and when they come across Him, He exults in their triumphant reunion with Him.
We are aware that God is pleased.
When a sinner repents, the Bible does not claim that the angels rejoice; rather, it says that there is gladness in the presence of the angels of God.
It is the inhabitants of the Celestial Kingdom.
In fact, the folks in Heaven are well aware of what is going on on the planet.

25 Comforting Bible Verses about Death, Dying in Christ
My mother passed away on March 22, 2016, at exactly 12 p.m., and went to be with the Lord. (See my tribute for more information.) While death is no longer an adversary for those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ, it remains a painful time for those who are dying and their loved ones. I’m going to miss my mother tremendously! Because of sin in the world, death is the outcome, and if we do not have the hope of a Savior who will forgive us for our sins, we will be punished by God. Thanks be to God, however, for sending His only Son to pay for our sins and rise from the dead in order to offer believers eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
He is prepared for every situation: for life, for death, for anything.”.
While we still have to deal with the physical realities of life in a sinful world, such as death, we may place our confidence in the promises of God made through Jesus Christ, and rest certain that those who die in Christ will be welcomed into paradise.
Comforting Bible Verses about Death for Those Dying in Christ
Romans 8:38-39 (NASB) We shall not be separated from God’s love through death or life, nor through angels or rulers, nor through things present or things to come, nor through powers, nor through height or depth, nor through anything else in all of creation. 1 Corinthians 15:51-57 is a biblical passage. Behold! I’ll reveal a secret to you. We will not all sleep, but we will all be transformed in a split second, in the blink of an eye, at the sound of the final symphony. Because the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be resurrected from the graves incorruptible, and we will be transformed.
- When the perishable is transformed into the imperishable, and the mortal is transformed into immortality, the prophecy that says, “Death is swallowed up in triumph,” will come to pass as written.
- Anyone who believes in me will live even if he or she dies, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.
