Immortal life … Can it be?
Somewhere between the mainstream of the church and people looking for a God who really exists, the truth is floating in the air. Day after day people fight for life. Yes, not just for a living. What is the use of making a living when we live such a short life that it is going to end soon? What is the reason to live if we have to die and go to heaven one day? Why don’t we die and go to heaven?
The answer to that is in the truth. The truth that is written in the Bible that has been overlooked, misquoted, and misinterpreted for many years.
People who call themselves “Christians” sometimes don’t even know what the word “Christ” means. It means the anointing and the Spirit of God that came to Jesus when he was baptized in the Jordan. That same Spirit that was returned to the Father was poured out on the earth on the day of Pentecost.
God’s intention was never for Adam to die. His intention was never for us to die! The whole story of the Bible is about LIFE! It is not about dying to go to heaven.
Immortality according to the Bible and according to most dictionaries means living without dying.
I have come to realize with surprise that children commit suicide because of the teachings and preaching of most of the preachers in the main church. Most preachers preach that it is bad to live on earth and that it will be much better in heaven “ONE DAY”. How absurd! You are killing our children, lying to them. The Bible doesn’t say that! I challenge any preacher to show me the scripture that says the only way to go to heaven is to die.
All of God’s Word is about life! From the beginning and basically in every book of the Bible we can see the truth.
Most people will ask, but why do people keep dying? Born again Christians who are supposed to have the Spirit of Christ in them. The Spirit who raised Christ from the dead and is supposed to give life to our mortal bodies.
You can only ask that question if the truth has never been preached to you. Surely you can also ask yourself that question if you have not been born again. The Bible says that revelation cannot be heard if someone is not preaching it.
For many years, the only “truth” for the people was the Catholic religion. Luther had to stand up and preach the revelation that you don’t have to pay for your sins. It was in the Bible all the time. But still, someone had to preach the truth. The same is true of the new revelation. For many years no one spoke in tongues. It was in the Bible all the time, but someone had to get up and preach it.
It makes no difference to the word of immortality, which is probably the biggest revelation you’ve ever heard.
The Bible can be misinterpreted very easily due to incorrect translations or translators, who try to advance their own doctrines. A very good piece of advice for Bible scholars will be to make sure that the scripture they read is stated by scripture and not something that is happening in the world or the preacher’s own interpretation. Always test the scriptures by reading the context of the entire chapter. Sometimes it will be helpful to read different translations.
1Co 2: 9 (KJV) But as it is written: Things that the eye has not seen, nor has the ear heard, Nor have come up into the heart of man, They are what God has prepared for those who love him. 1Co 2:10 (KJV) But God revealed them to us by the Spirit; because the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.
Welcome to this amazing Word of God. Today you have come here to see one of God’s greatest mysteries and revealed secrets.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 29:29 that “the secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and to our children forever ………..”
The Bible is very clear! You are supposed to be immortal. He says it is for those who believe and for those who seek it! Stay with me through this wonderful teaching and you will be filled with joy and peace forever.
What is the meaning of the word immortality?
Is it God’s plan that we die and then go to heaven?
If so, why don’t we just die and go?
What does the Bible say about it?
The word “Immortality” in the Websters Dictionary is described as “EXEMPTION FROM DEATH” or “EXISTENCE WITHOUT END”. It does not say die and then live or life after death.
Christians will very easily and frequently quote John 10:10
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.
I don’t think they realize what they are quoting.
See the following scriptures:
Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must clothe himself with incorruption, and this mortal must clothe himself with immortality.
1Co 15:54 Then, when this corruptible is clothed in incorruption, and this mortal is clothed in immortality, then the saying that is written will be fulfilled: Death is devoured by victory.
2Co 4:11 For we who live are always given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our mortal flesh.
It does not say that it will manifest AFTER we are dead! It says in mortal flesh. In other words, the meat that can die. Not meat that is already dead.
Look carefully at the following scriptures. Note that Paul is talking about 2 groups of people. It says “death works in us, but life in you” two groups.
2 Cor 4: 10-14: always taking into account the death of the Lord Jesus in the body, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body. Because we who live are always being handed over to death for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body. Because we, having the same spirit of faith (as it is written: “I believed, and therefore I spoke”); We also believed and that is why we speak, knowing that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will also raise us up through Jesus, and will present us to you.
We know that people are dying and therefore most of the people who do not receive this revelation will say “but why are people still dying today?”
Joh 6:47 Truly, truly, I say to you: He who believes in me has eternal life.
He did not say, whoever believes in Me will die and go to heaven.
Read all of John 6 and see how many times HE says: If you eat of My flesh and drink of My blood, YOU WILL NEVER DIE!
Jesus says “I am the Bread of life”. And your fathers ate manna in the desert and died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that whoever eats it will not die.
Doesn’t the Bible say that the last enemy to be subdued and abolished is death?
Can I say this: when you die, have you been conquered by death? You have neither subdued death nor conquered death. Death is only conquered when you live and do not die.
From the beginning, in Genesis, God’s plan for us was to live and not die. The question in the garden was not sin. It was about LIFE and DEATH.
Gen 3: 3 But of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God said: You shall not eat of it, nor touch it, lest you die.
Gen 3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. And now, lest he reach out his hand and also take from the tree of life, and eat and live forever,
Gen 3:23 therefore Jehovah God sent him out of the Garden of Eden to till the land from which he had been taken.
Gen 3:24 And he cast out the man. And he put cherubs to the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword that turned in every way, to guard the path of the tree of life.
Ps 118: 17 I will not die, but I will live, and I will count the deeds and I will count the illustrious acts of the Lord.
Ps 118: 24 This is the day that Jehovah has made; we will rejoice and rejoice in it.
Read all of Ps 118 and try to see the prophetic Word that the psalmist brings.
Acts 13:35 That is why it also says in another psalm: You will not allow your Holy One to see corruption. [to undergo putrefaction and dissolution of the grave]. [Ps. 16:10.]
Acts 13:36 For David, having fulfilled God’s will, purpose, and counsel in his own generation, fell asleep [in death] and he was buried among his ancestors, and saw corruption and suffered decay and dissolution. [of the grave].
Acts 13:37 But the one whom God raised up [to life] I did not see corruption [did not experience putrefaction and dissolution of the grave].
Acts 13:41 Behold, scoffers and scoffers, and marvel, perish and disappear; because I’m doing a work in your days, an action that you will never trust or believe, [even] if someone [clearly describing it in detail] I declare it to you. [Hab. 1:5.]
Why is Paul referring to Habakkuk? What is the context?
Let’s go to Habakkuk and see.
Hab 1: 5 Look around you [you, Habakkuk, replied the Lord] among the nations and look! And be amazed! Amazed! Because I’m doing a play in your days [such] You wouldn’t believe it if they told you [Acts 13:40, 41.]
Looking at this, we still struggle to see any context.
Hab 2: 2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision and make it plain on the tables, so that he who reads it may run.
Hab 2: 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but it speaks to the end, and it does not lie. Even if it takes time, wait for it; because it will surely come. Will not take long.
Hab 1:12 Art thou not from eternity, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We will not die.
What is he saying
The Lord says to Habakkuk: Write the vision, because there is an appointed time when it will be manifested. So no one will believe this. What vision? “WE’LL NEVER DIE”
The word says that not all of us will die before He returns!
Ps 102: 18 Let this be recorded for the unborn generation, that a people yet to be created will praise the Lord.
Ps 102: 20 To hear the groaning and groaning of the prisoner, to release those sentenced to death,
These guys know that it was not because of their time, but because of a generation that has not yet been born.
1 Pet 1:23 You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever-living and enduring Word of God.
1Pe 1:24 For all flesh (mankind) is like grass, and all his glory (honor) like [the] grass flower. The grass withers and the flower falls,
1Pe 1:25 But the Word of the Lord (divine instruction, the Gospel) remains forever. And this Word is the good news that has been preached to you. [Isa. 40:6-9.]
Yes, all flesh is like grass, BUT when you are BORN again, from the IMMORTAL SEED of GOD, He will renew your strength and your mortal body will be quickened.
Remember this is only for those who believe!
If you still have a hard time accepting it, try the following scripture:
Rom 2: 7 to those who by patient perseverance in doing good [springing from piety] search [unseen but sure] glory and honor and [the eternal blessedness of] immortality, He will give eternal life.
It is in all translations
To those who seek Glory, Honor, AND IMMORTALITY, He will give eternal life.
Through the Bible we see that GOD wants us to live.
Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses; So choose life, so that you and your offspring may live.
There was a time when people had an appointment with death, but that appointment with death is canceled (Ps 102)
This is just a glimpse of what the Word really says.
