10-10-2021 “PRESCIOUS IN HIS SIGHT!” Psalms 116:15

This week Bro. Leo shares with us the message he shared at his Dad’s funeral about how God reacts to the physical death of His children.

In Psa.116:15 the word “Precious” is translated from the Hebrew word “yâqâr” which means to be valued by, to be important to, to be prescious to.

Jesus desires to have us with Him in Heaven (John 17:24). Jesus, the second person of the Godhead) walked with Adam and Eve daily in the Garden of Eden until they sinned.

Physical death is the only way God can accomplish these things, 1) totally heal us of all infirmities, 2) change us so that we never sin again (Psa.103:1-5). Our best day on Earth doesn’t compare to what God has instore for us in Heaven.

In Psa.23:4 the phrase “the valley of the shadow of death” signifies that the child of God feels no impact of death and it’s consequences. All our needs are met in life by Jesus including our needs at the point of death (Phil.4:19, Psa.48:14). At the point of death God fills us with assurance, comfort, peace and strength according to Psa.23:4 (thy rod and thy staff they comfort me).

Being united with God in Heaven is why our physical death is so prescious to God.

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Psa 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

Joh 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Psa 103:1 A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Psa 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Psa 103:4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Psa 103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psa 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

Php 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Psa 48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Psa 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Rom 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
Rom 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
Rom 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
