Because remember, you're going to die someday, or either be translated into heaven.

And if you die before His coming, you'll be raptured first. Did you know that? Did you know those who are dead-- If mama and papa dies before you do, and Jesus doesn't come in our generation, do you know these, papa and mama, will come forth first, glorified, before you? See?

The trumpet of God shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up with them. We'll be changed in it like that. We've got to remember, that's the main thing in life. You understand now?

That's the main thing in life we got to do, is to get ready to meet God.
