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).

“[IF YE THEN BE RISEN WITH CHRIST, SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST SITTETH ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD]. 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 the Lord [HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN] with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and [THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], then [WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS], to meet the Lord in the air: and [SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH] the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).
The disciple Peter also said: “Wherefore, beloved, [SEEING THAT YE LOOK FOR SUCH THINGS], be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14).
“Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen” (2 Peter 3:17-18).
