By nature, when children are born into this world, they enter life (small; ignorant; spiritually dead; angelic).
Despite their spiritual condition, they may have physical life for (a year; a decade; a century; a while).
Apart from the intervening, saving grace of God, when these people physically die, their bodies may be (translated to Heaven; buried; cremated; eaten by fish) but their souls will (entombed; calcified; sent to hades; translated to Heaven). Not translated to Heaven, entombed or calcified – sent to Hell
“Then shall (Christ) say also unto them on the left hand, _______________ from me, ye ______________, into ___________________ _____________, prepared for the devil & his angels.” Matt 25:41

With only a few exceptions, all of God’s saints from a hundred years ago and beyond have (been burned at the stake; been resurrected; been translated to Heaven; died just like the non-saints). Died

“Then shall (Christ) the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye _________________ of my Father, ____________________ the kingdom _______________________ for you from the __________________ of the world.” Matt. 25:34
It might be argued that the kingdom of this verse is the Millennial Kingdom, but is that what the Lord has prepared for the redeemed Gentile?
Those sinners who die under God’s gracious salvation (will eventually become ashes in hell; will cease to exist; will live eternally in death; will have eternal life). Eternal life
“Even so must the Son of man be ________________ ______ (picked up; crucified; translated to heaven; glorified): that whosoever _________________________ in him should not _______________, but have ______________________ life.” John 3:14-15
“My ___________________ hear my voice, and I ___________________ them, and they follow me: And I give unto them _______________________ _____________; and they shall never ________________, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:27-28

What he did say about that sort of thing was “I am in a _________________ betwixt two, having a desire to __________________, and to be with Christ; which is far ________________: nevertheless to abide in the __________________ is more needful for you.” Phil 1:23-24
To be with Christ, physically, momentarily, eternally or in Heaven, is far better than to be (the most successful gospel minister of all time; the richest man on the face of the earth; the most generous person in history; like Solomon in all his glory). All of these
