Considering that GOD'S gift to humanity is Everlasting LIFE.
Can you Believe that some people have absolutely no interest in it?"
Others think they can obtain it themselves, by doing good works, that they say, would outweigh the bad things they've done."
Yet, Ephesians 2:8-9 denies that possibility, by saying: For by GRACE you have been SAVED through FAITH, and that not of yourselves; it is the Gift of GOD, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
["Still others, think that they can attain it, by trusting in the advancements of science." At least a dozen multimillionaires have left money to themselves, in hopes of being brought back to LIFE."
These IMMORTALITY seekers have arranged to be "cryogenically" frozen after death. These wealthy people trust immensely in their riches and the advancement of science, but very little to nothing, in The WORD Of The LIVING GOD - JESUS CHRIST.
Yet, in order to be counted among the truly wise, The BIBLE teaches not to be ashamed of GOD, but to Trust in HIS WORD."
Yes, to trust in HIS awe inspiring declaration, from 2nd Timothy 1:8-10 that reads:
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our LORD, nor of me, HIS prisoner, but share with me, in the sufferings of The GOSPEL according to the POWER Of GOD, Who has SAVED us, and has called us with a HOLY calling, not according to our works, but according to HIS Own purpose and GRACE which was given to us in CHRIST JESUS before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, Who has abolished death and brought LIFE and IMMORTALITY to LIGHT through The GOSPEL.
[And so, Beloved, any and all IMMORTALITY seekers, would do well to put their Trust in The WORD of The LIVING GOD - JESUS CHRIST."
Yes, to trust in CHRIST, instead of putting their hopes in their wealth, and “personal revival trusts,” which some believe will be waiting for them, when and if, scientists bring them back from the dead.
Yet, even if resuscitation were possible, to seek IMMORTALITY apart from The One, Who is LIFE Eternal, is to chase an outlandish and elusive dream!"
The apostle Paul made it abundantly clear in 1st Timothy 6:16, that The LORD alone, "is the source of all LIFE and IMMORTALITY."
HE, HIMSELF, Beloved, "is Everlasting LIFE."
For us human beings, however, physical death is universal, and unless we are counted worthy to be taken up in the Rapture; "it's inevitable." For Hebrews 9:27 reveals that the cause of death, is our sin, and ultimately leads to judgment."
It's all a result of our sin, and it can only be countered by the REDEMPTION found through FAITH in the finished work of The Cross Of CHRIST.
Through HIS death, burial, and RESURRECTION,
The LORD, HIMSELF, broke the power of death and showed humanity The WAY to LIFE and IMMORTALITY."
And everyone who trusts that HE has, considers well the writings of Paul in 2 Tim.1:10-12, and knows this declaration is worth repeating and expounding on."
So let us consider then, GOD'S WORD, and recieve HIS TRUTH with humility, and not be ashamed to be known as CHRISTIANS.
For we are CHRIST'S, because we Believe in the finished work of The Cross, of our LORD."
And because we Believe, let us speak, and proclaim The GOSPEL of CHRIST, humanity's only SALVATION, that was revealed to us."
And verse 10 of 1st Timothy continues this revelation, by saying: "But has now been revealed by the appearing of our SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST,
Who has abolished death and brought LIFE and IMMORTALITY to LIGHT through The GOSPEL, to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher to the gentiles.
For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know Whom I have Believed and am persuaded that HE is able to keep what I have committed to HIM until that Day."
the world's response to death is to seek to preserve their physical bodies through "cryogenics," and the advancement of science.
But ours, is to be ready for the up-calling of The Church, by Trusting in The WORD Of The LIVING GOD, and then receive HIS gift of Everlasting LIFE!
For you see, it's not an illusive gift, but an exclusive one, that can only be obtained by FAITH in CHRIST!
By trusting in JESUS CHRIST - The WORD of The LIVING GOD, that reveals HIS finished work of The Cross, for the remission of sins.]
For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten Son, that whoever Believes in HIM should not perish but have Everlasting LIFE.
