After-life

Redemption through His Blood
For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own.…Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him. 
Hebrews 9:26-28
 

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! 
Its rider was named Death,
Rev.6:8


‘Do you believe in After-life?’
I’ve heard the questioned posed
And much debate ensues about
‘After-these-eyes-are-closed’

Tis foolish to be ignorant
For God has made it clear
That after this life everyone
Before Him will appear

…and it is futile to suggest
There is another way
To the Giver of our Breath
We will return some day

But, Now, Today, grace-gladdened tides
Abound where mercy rolls
And Everlasting Hope abides
The saving of our souls
