“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in Himself; so hath He given to the Son to have life in Himself; and hath given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.” John 5:24-29 (KJB)
Life began with God. Life continues into eternity by Him and with Him. I believe everyone has a desire to live forever. That, is a God-given thing for all of Adam kind. Some seek life and living through science, and medical means. We all fight against sickness and diseases of all kinds for life. Eventually our fight with these things must give way to death. Sad, but true.
We are frail, failing, fallen beings in need of grace, and help from our Creator.
I have Good News for you today. You can live forever.
Did you read the words of Jesus above? If you hear His words, and believe on Him that sent Him you have everlasting, or eternal life; there is no condemnation to any who have believed Him (Romans 8:1), and they have passed from death to LIFE.
There is much to take in those six verses of Scripture. Life is what Jesus offers. Eternal life is what He gives to any and all who will hear His word and believe.
My question for you right now is; Which resurrection will you be in? The first one or the last one. The first is the resurrection of the Just – those who have been declared just by God because of His Son. The second is the resurrection of the unjust, the wicked who have rejected God and His grace.
See Revelation 20:5-6 and 20:12-15.
Through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Son of Man, and God the Son there is LIFE for all who will hear.
