Good morning to all from under the awning of my camper as I spend time this morning, in God’s Word. Let’s look into the idea of living forever. Will we and can we live forever? What will it take to live forever with Christ?
The One Who Lives Forever…this signifies His complete victory over Satan, sin and death, for those who will trust in (Christ Jesus) His salvation and accept Him as their Lord and Savior.
What a blessed HOPE we have in Christ Jesus! We can have the peace and assurrance of eternal life and live a happy, joyfull and fufilled life TODAY, and forever in Christ.
Yes, we can and will live forever, with our Heavenly Father, God and our Lord and Savior.
Let’s look at a few scriptures that reveals the truth of our eternity life, being with Christ forever. God has provide a way by His grace and received by faith in His Son, Jesus, the ONLY way to God and heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:19-20 And if we have hope in Christ only for this life, we are the most miserable people in the world. But the fact is that Christ has been raised from the dead. He has become the first of a great harvest of those who will be raised to life again.
Revelation 1:17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last.
Revelation 4:9 “Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the one sitting on the throne, the one who lives forever and ever,”
1 Corinthians 15:21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, Adam, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man, Christ. Everyone dies because all of us are related to Adam, the first man. But all who are related to Christ, the other man, will be given new life.
Just as Jesus rose from the dead and lives forever so all those who trust in Him will also be “ones who live forever” in Christ’s eternal kingdom.
Revelation 1:10 It was the Lord’s Day, and I was worshiping in the Spirit (in spirit). Suddenly, I heard a loud voice behind me, a voice that sounded like a trumpet blast.
What does John mean by this phrase “the Lord’s Day” ? This was referring to the fact that by the power of the Holy Spirit John was lifted in prophetic vision beyond the church age to the “Day of the Lord”.
The Lord’s Day or The Day of the Lord…the Great Tribulation…John was taken in vision to the future day of the Lord…or “the last days” when Christ shall appear to the earth; given events of the Tribulation Period, the Rapture of the Church and the glorious appearing of Christ with the establishment of His millennial kingdom.
Just a side step to help clarify… What is the truth about Sunday as “the Lord’s Day”?
The two most important days initiating the birth of our Christian faith, the Resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, both occurred by God’s providence on Sunday…thus Sunday, the first day of the week was celebrated as the day of Worship for the Christian faith.
Sunday is considered “the Lord’s day” simply because Sunday was the day of His resurrection and the Day of Pentecost.To the Christian every day is a holy day…for the Bible teaches that we are not to esteem one day above another.
We are to keep in mind Romans 14 and Colossians 2, which suggest that we go to the Lord’s house on what we call “the Lord’s Day” as a testimony that we believe Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead on the first day of the week.
As a “Christian” born-again believer and follower of Christ Jesus we are guaranteed Eternal Life with Him.
It is exciting to know that life in itself is not over after we leave this body by death…no, this life is just the beginning of a new life with Christ.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
