Death Is Not the End

God is not death. He is Life: Eternal Life. Jesus Himself revealed to His disciples that the Heavenly Father governs immortal beings universally.

Alziro Zarur

Death is not the end of human existence. As the late Proclaimer of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit, Alziro Zarur (1914-1979), used to say, “it doesn’t exist in any part of the Universe.”

This is really true, because not even the corpse is dead. When it decomposes it releases billions of minute forms that will generate other ways of existing.

You do not believe it? You have every right not to. But what if it is true?! Reward yourself, my friends, with the right to your doubt, for this is the basis of scientific discourse, which with its unceasing investigation continues to open new paths for Mankind.

Just think about if what we are saying here is true, You will find yourself, after a pseudo libertarian act (suicide), terribly constrained. You will see yourself in a situation for which you have not been prepared for in any way whatsoever. Who will you appeal to if from the beginning you distanced yourself from all your loved ones and from the happiness that you stubbornly refused to see?! In that moment you will like to go back and see them, but it will be too late. And only after you have offered many prayers, which you perhaps never or rarely uttered when you were on Earth, will you notice, in a gesture of humility, a light illuminating you in the darkness. Only in this way and after much pain suffered by your own Spirit, will you be able to find again a path that will have become rougher.

As it is said here in the Religion of God: “suicide does not resolve anyone’s anguish”; and neither will it solve yours.

My brothers and sisters, Life always continues, and it is worth fighting for. No matter how dark the night is, the Sun will rise, bringing light to your hearts.


And more, if we look around at our day-to-day life we will see that there are those, human beings and even animals, in a more painful situation than us, in need of a helping hand. We must not miss the opportunity to help. To those who offer assistance, the blessed protection that can heal all wounds will never lack. To live is better!

I turned to the first volume of the collection of works I wrote entitled Spiritual Guidelines of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit​ and the following passage seems very appropriate:

November 2 in Brazil is the so-called Day of the Dead.Once a reporter asked me if I prayed for them, and I replied: Naturally. We miss those who have preceded us on the path to the great Spiritual Homeland, the World of Truth. Let us remember our relatives and friends with great affection. Missing someone is understandable, but it is not appropriate to nurture sadness, because this disturbs the Spirit of the loved person. They are more alive than ever. Nothing dies. As we know it, the corpse, which put on the Spirit, is also transformed into Life. Death is a rumor. The late journalist, radio broadcaster, poet, and writer Alziro Zarur taught us that “death does not exist in any point of the Universe.” God is not death. He is Life: Eternal Life. Jesus Himself revealed to His disciples that the Heavenly Father governs Immortal Beings universally. And he concluded by adding: “Because you don’t believe in this reality, you live wrongly.” Those whom we love never die, even though they are already in the Spiritual World. Many remain at our side, helping us; others may be needing our prayers. Let us pray for them, so that when our time comes someone will pray for us, and let us thank God for being the God of the living. The dead do not die.

Pascal (1623-1662) once defined: “The immortality of the soul is a matter which is of so great consequence to us and which touches us so profoundly that we must have lost all feeling to be indifferent about it.”
