For you granted Him authority over all people that He might give eternal life to all those you have given Him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:2-3
ETERNAL LIFE: Everlasting, forever, unchanging
We know that when we close our eyes in death, our soul departs the body, and it goes SOMEWHERE, to spend an ETERNITY. I know some may believe that there is NOTHING after this life. But there TRULY IS an ETERNITY for everyone who has EVER been born. How do I know this, and how can I be SO CERTAIN? Well, because the Word of God tells us MANY TIMES about ETERNAL LIFE, and I BELIEVE it, because it is TRUTH. GOD cannot LIE and will NOT LIE.
But the VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION IS: Where will YOU spend your ETERNITY? You see, ETERNAL LIFE is MORE than an ENDLESS EXISTENCE. EVERYONE exist somewhere forever. In the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 25, verse 46, it says: Then they, (the UNBELIEVER), will go away to ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, but the RIGHTEOUS, (TRUE BELIEVER) to ETERNAL LIFE.” These are the words of the Lord Jesus Christ. And it means that the UNBELIEVER will spend ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPING. It will be FOREVER SUFFERING and the intensity will be beyond human comprehension. But for the TRUE BELIEVER, it will be an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. NO IMMORALITY, NO DEVIANT BEHAVIOR, NO HATRED, NO LAWLESSNESS, NO UNGODLINESS of ANY KIND. There will be NO SUFFERING, NO SICKNESS, and NO DEATH. JUST JOY UNSPEAKABLE and GLORY PERSONIFIED.
God gave Jesus the AUTHORITY over ALL people, and He has the AUTHORITY to give ETERNAL LIFE. ETERNAL LIFE that the TRUE BELIEVER would KNOW the ONLY TRUE GOD, and His SON, JESUS CHRIST, who DIED for ALL MANKIND, but was RAISED to LIFE, so that they might have ETERNAL LIFE with JESUS and the HOLY FATHER. To KNOW God and His Son, Jesus was MORE than knowing ABOUT them. It is having a CLOSE, INTIMATE, and RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with them. LOVING and ACCEPTING their gift of SALVATION and becoming a part of their FAMILY. To ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST CONFESS your SINS to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
