I've edited the assumptions out of this post to show what we're looking for in good questions.

comment How can one be in pain while dead?
Nowhere in this passage does it say anyone is in heaven or hell. Also, this passage is talking specifically about Jesus, and applying it to anyone else requires eisegesis. For these reasons, I downvoted this question. We expect questions and answers to start only from the text and to 'show their work' (we're a little different from other sites), but this question brings a myriad of unsupported assumptions to the text.

comment How frequently is God attributed to saying “Don't be afraid”?
There are 438 commands to not fear/be afraid in the Protestant canon, 445 if you include the Apocrypha. This is based solely on the NET, NKJV, KJV/1900, ESV, and LES, however. A better answer should use the original languages and disambiguate between fear and awe since they are the same word in the Hebrew in many cases.
