Chapter 12 - Those who trust in Jesus
The apostle Paul writes wistfully of looking forward to death when he writes the Philippians.
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. - Philippians 1:20-24
There is no experience of Hades for those who trust in Jesus. Paul writes of either being in the body or being with the Lord.
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. - 2 Corinthians 5:8
The reason we are able to escape the destination of Hades is that we have new and eternal life in Jesus. We have been made alive in Christ and are somehow part of his body.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. - 1 Corinthians 15:22
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. - 2 Corinthians 5:17
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 1 Corinthians 12:27
