What happens to a Christian at death?

What happens to a Christian at death?

Heaven is a place of resplendent glory, and being with Christ in the glory of heaven will be far superior to our present earthly lives.

At the moment of death believers will be made perfect and cleansed from all sin. believers are taken to heaven immediately at death. 
Heaven is fully pure and free from all tarnish and sin, and therefore when God takes us to heaven He makes us fit for the experience of it by making our hearts perfect in holiness. ..

Believers will be taken into the presence of Christ in heaven. Christ is in heaven now (Acts 1:2; 3:21; 1 Thes 1:10; 4:16;

Believers will go to be with Jesus Christ

Jesus said to the thief on the cross,
"Truly I say to you, today you shall be with me in Paradise”
" (Luke 23:43).

Paul spoke of death as ushering us into the presence of Christ, that departing this life to be with Christ "is very much better" Philippians 1:23)

The apostle Paul would “prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord" (2 Corinthians 5:8).

Those who did not trust Christ in this life will be separated from God and enter a reality completely devoid of His common grace and blessing, immediately entering into great torment in hell
(Luke 16:22-26).

Scripture speaks often of the painful reality that awaits those who do not place their faith in Christ to be rescued from sin (Matthew 13:30; 25:41; Luke 12:5; John 3:36; Romans 2:8-9;

God wants His people to be comforted in the face of death:

"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are mine!

Eternal Life, forever in Christ alone
