“For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, [ALL THE DAYS OF HIS VAIN LIFE] which he spendeth as a shadow? For who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 6:12).
“The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, [VANITY OF VANITIES; ALL IS VANITY]” (Ecclesiastes 1:1-2).
“What [PROFIT] hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 1:3).

“[FOR THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS WITH GOD]” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
“[WHAT MAN IS HE THAT LIVETH, AND SHALL NOT SEE DEATH]? Shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave?” (Psalm 89:48).
“[THERE IS NO MAN THAT HATH POWER OVER THE SPIRIT TO RETAIN THE SPIRIT; NEITHER HATH HE POWER IN THE DAY OF DEATH]: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it” (Ecclesiastes 8:8).
“If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14).
“[FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE]” (1 Corinthians 15:22).
“[FOR GOD] so loved the world, that he [GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], that whosoever [BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD] not perish, but [HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]” (John 3:16).
“[FOR SINCE BY MAN CAME DEATH, BY MAN CAME ALSO THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD]” (1 Corinthians 15:21).
“[IF YE THEN BE RISEN WITH CHRIST, SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST SITTETH ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD]. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with christ in god. [WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YE ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY]” (Colossians 3:1-4).
JESUS CHRIST says: “[NO MAN CAN COME TO ME, EXCEPT THE FATHER WHICH HATH SENT ME DRAW HIM: AND I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. [I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU].
And if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO].
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas saith unto him, ‘Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?’
Jesus saith unto him, ‘[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME]’” (John 14:2-6).
“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
