This statement may be rejected, renounced or even ridiculed by many people. However, it is TRUTH by the word of God!
When our Lord Jesus was here on earth and he was assembling his disciples, one of them said: “Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father” (Matthew 8:21).
“But Jesus said unto him, ‘Follow me; and [LET THE DEAD BURY THEIR DEAD]’” (Matthew 8:22).
While we are alive on this earth, we DO NOT have LIFE; we only have a LIFETIME (Acts 17:24-26).
The GOOD news is that GOD have given us HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON that we may inherit ETERNAL LIFE at the END OF TIME (John 3:16-18) (Acts 17:30-31).
The word of God as spoken by the Apostle Paul says: “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. [FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]. When Christ, [WHO IS OUR LIFE], shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4).
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).
Now, therefore, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).
JESUS, says: “I am the resurrection, and [THE LIFE]: [HE THAT BELIEVETH IN ME, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE]: And [WHOSOEVER LIVETH AND BELIEVETH IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE]. Believest thou this?” (John 11:25-26).
Are you a BELIEVER?
“[HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE]: and [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT THE SON SHALL NOT SEE LIFE]; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).
