TO FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST is to NEVER SEE DEATH! (John 5: 25-29, 8:51).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘[IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME], let him deny himself, and [TAKE UP HIS CROSS, AND FOLLOW ME]’” (Matthew 16:24).
“And [HE THAT TAKETH NOT HIS CROSS, AND FOLLOWETH AFTER ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME]” (Matthew 10:38).
“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. If [ANY MAN SERVE ME], let him [FOLLOW ME]; and [WHERE I AM, THERE SHALL ALSO MY SERVANT BE]” (Matthew 12:24-26).
“[I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU]. and if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN], and receive you unto myself; [THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO]” (John 14:2–3).
“[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).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, [THE HOUR IS COMING, AND NOW IS, WHEN THE DEAD SHALL HEAR THE VOICE OF THE SON OF GOD: AND THEY THAT HEAR SHALL LIVE]. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. [MARVEL NOT AT THIS: FOR THE HOUR IS COMING], in the which [ALL THAT ARE IN THE GRAVES SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE], And [SHALL COME FORTH]; [THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE]; and [THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION]” (John 5:25-29).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall [NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).
“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
