Before we Believed The GOSPEL Of CHRIST, and turned from doing the will and desires of the devil."
We were each among the people of the world "whom today" seek after "LIFE and IMMORTALITY."
"But our greatest day" and Blessing in LIFE, is the day we embraced through FAITH, The "GOOD NEWS" Of JESUS CHRIST." On that day, Beloved, we each found what most of humanity seeks after!" Right!" Most of humanity, but not all." For most of humanity is traveling down the way that leads to destruction and perdition. How do I know? Well, because Mathew 7:13 assures us, that there are many who go in by the way of eternal damnation.
Consider how it reads: "Enter by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to LIFE, and there are few who find it.
[Only a few who find it?" Yes, for many fail to recognize that it's only by FAITH in CHRIST, and HIS finished work of The Cross. That one can obtain GOD'S PROMISE of Everlasting LIFE, and obtain "IMMORTALITY!"
In The LORD'S day, many in like manner, failed to recognize The WORD of The LIVING GOD, "declaring," in John 11:25-26: "I AM The RESURRECTION and The LIFE.
He who believes in ME, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in ME shall never die.
Do you believe this?"
[They failed to recognize GOD speaking, and revealing HIMSELF to everyone who would embrace "GOD'S TRUTH." So I praise GOD, that
we believed GOD'S report, Beloved Brethren!]
And because we believe, having the riches of this world, is not what we live nor long for." You see, our battle is not against flesh and blood, Ephesians 6:12 assures us." We don't wrestle against our fellow man, to try and gain what most of humanity wants, and greatly values.🤔 We wrestle against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against SPIRITUAL hosts of wickedness in the Heavenly places. Thus, we live, Beloved, seeking to make for ourselves Treasure in HEAVEN. And not here on earth!" Why? Well, it's simply because we know that "every Soul" is precious to GOD. And because we know, we are absolutely certain, that one "who win souls," is wise." You see, everyone who would be countered among the wise. "Is wise," to aim to be counted among the "Soul winners" whom The WORD of The LIVING GOD," calls wise, because we fear HIM. HE even refers ro us as MY jewels. Consider how Malachi 3:16-18 affirms this, by saying: Then those who feared The LORD spoke to one another,
And The LORD listened and heard them; So a book of rememberance was written before HIM
For those who fear The LORD
And who meditate on HIS NAME.
"They shall be MINE," says The LORD of hosts,
On the Day that I make them MY jewels. And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.." Then you shall again discern between the RIGHTEOUS and the wicked,
Between one who serves GOD,
And one who does not serve HIM.
[Is that clear, Beloved Brethren?]
Yes?" Well then, Mathew 9:37-38 admonishes the entire BODY of CHRIST, by saying: "The harvest is truly plentiful, but the laborers are few.
Therefore pray The LORD of the harvest to send out laborers into HIS harvest.
Do you know how many people are interested in Eternal LIFE and IMMORTALITY?"
A great many!"
I understand that at least a dozen multimillionaires have left money to themselves in hope of being resuscitated, and brought back to LIFE one day. These "immortality seekers" have arranged to be cryogenically frozen after death. And not only that, they’ve also put their wealth in “personal revival trusts,” which they believe will be waiting for them when scientists resuscitate them in the future. Even if resuscitation were possible, to seek eternal LIFE apart from "The One Who is" LIFE and IMMORTALITY, is to chase an elusive dream. The apostle Paul himself affirmed that The LORD alone is the source of "IMMORALITY."
1st Timothy 6:12-16 makes it abundantly clear, by saying: Fight the good fight of FAITH, lay hold on Eternal LIFE, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I urge you in the sight of GOD Who gives LIFE to all things, and before JESUS CHRIST Who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our LORD JESUS CHRIST’S appearing, which HE will manifest in HIS Own time, HE is The Blessed and only Potentate, The KING of kings and LORD of lord's, Who alone has IMMORTALITY, dwelling in unapproachable LIGHT, Whom no man has seen or can see, to Whom be honor and Everlasting Power. AMEN.
The LORD is Everlasting in HIS Character and actions.
For each us, though, death is universal, inevitable, and ultimately leads to judgment. Hebrews 9:27 assures each of us, of this, by saying: And as it is appointed for men once to die once, but after this the judgement, so CHRIST was offered once to bear the sins of many. [Right!" Bear the sins of Many," but not all!" Because not all, Beloved, will embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD." They will not be like those of us, who are mentioned next.] To those who eagerly wait for HIM
HE will appear a second time, apart from sin, for SALVATION.
Death is a result of sin!" For Romans 6:23 assures us, saying: The wages of sin is death!" [Yet, the rest of the verse encourages us, by saying]: But the gift of GOD is Eternal LIFE in JESUS CHRIST our LORD.
From what I've gathered,"
Death can only be countered by the REDEMPTION that is found through The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST. Through HIS death, burial, and RESURRECTION on the third day, The LORD JESUS broke the power of death and showed humanity The Way to IMMORTALITY!"
And in John 14:6 HE exclaimed: I AM The WAY, The TRUTH, and The LIFE; no one comes to The FATHER except by ME.
Right!" We all must embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD through FAITH. For FAITH, Beloved, leads to obedience to share The GOSPEL of CHRIST. And so in 2nd Timothy 1:8-10, "Paul admonishes each of us," to not be ashamed of preaching The GOSPEL, by saying: Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our LORD, nor of me HIS prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for The GOSPEL according to the POWER of GOD, Who has SAVED us and 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.
[Through The GOSPEL?"]
Yes, through FAITH In The GOSPEL. for 1st Corrinthians 1:21
reveals the WISDOM of GOD: For since, in the wisdom of GOD, the world through wisdom did not know GOD, it pleased GOD through the foolishness of the message preached to SAVE those who Believe.
[With that said, Brethren, our response to our mortality should not be to preserve our physical bodies through cryogenics, but to be ready for our own death by receiving the gift of Eternal LIFE in JESUS NAME.
And then be ready, for our REDEMPTION draws near. And with that thought fresh in our minds. Let's consider Revalation 22:12-13, where The LORD, says: "And behold, I AM coming quickly, and MY reward is with ME, to give to everyone according to his work.
I AM The Alpha and The Omega,
The Beginning and The End,
The First and The Last."
[Our days here on earth, will one day soon, be a thing of the past.
