“The end is near for us”
Eccl. 11:8 – But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness ; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity. KJV
Some people may plan to live many years only to suddenly die. Indeed; death comes to all … No person can predict the years of their life; whether many or few. Consequently; each person must consider their eternal destiny. The wise person will listen to Solomon:
Eccl. 11:8 –10 … 8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness ; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity. 9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. 10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity. Eccl. 12:1 … Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shall say, I have no pleasure in
Heb. 9:27 – and as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: KJV
As the years of our life swiftly pass, I realize that life is very short. Many of the people I have known through the past years are no longer among the living. Many members of my immediate family are no longer among the living. The relentlessness of time and aging will eventually take everyone I know, including myself. We will all soon exit the land of the living. Many people fear death or are terribly insecure continually while they reside here on the earth.

Hebrews 9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this (cometh) judgment; ASV
We all, have an appointment with death some time in the future. Our appointment with death may be many years away, we have no way of knowing when or how our end will come. Since we do not know when or how our end will come we ought to examine the Bible evidence that tells us we will live again.
