My friends, Welcome Back.
Now, if you could not answer the previous question, 'Is Charles Haddon Spurgeon a 'liar', a 'fool', or a 'crazy person'? [See Posts 1A-1B, February 2, 2019 and Post 2, February 9, 2019; let us see how you do with the next Person and what He - 'The Son of God', 'Jesus the Christ' - has to say, about 'death'. See the posts dated February 16, 2019. As we continued our series, we remembered and have also considered what an 'Apostle', Paul, had to say, as well. [See our last Post 4 in the series posted on February 23, 2019.] Then, we concluded our 'introduction' with some 'encouragements and exhortations with Post 6a-b, on March 30, 2019. www.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Continuing today, April 20, 2019 in this Post 7, multiple part series, [April 6, 13, 2019], for a season we will look in more details on the subject of 'mortality' and 'immortality' on our weekly Saturday Series. The series is straightforward, but, there will be some 'topics' to which we will return in a 'Series 8' set of posts with some 'aside' but, 'important' sub-topics, to which I shall make note in passing.
I pray to Jesus, through the Holy Spirit that you will then, have absolutely no 'reason' to be found 'lost' and 'out' of 'the faith of Jesus', when you die, or, He appears. And further, I pray that the Holy Spirit of God will convince and convict you of this 'truth', to wit: 'Death in this Life, is NOT THE END!' Amen. Amen. [John 16:6, 8]
Some Definitions and Holy Bible Passages for you to 'search'. [Acts 17:11]
'Immortality', from the New Testament; Post 7 C, April 20, 2019
Immortality is a corollary to references to 'existence after death' or to 'the resurrection in general'.
Jesus assumes a continuing existence after death throughout his teachings. Certainly the future aspects of the kingdom of God imply as much. He speaks of it directly in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus [Luke 16:19-31] and in the judgment scene of Matthew 25:31-46. To make "everlasting life" available is at the heart of Jesus' mission: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full [abundant']" [John 10:10; cf. 5:40; 20:31]. ajudio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Unlike a thief, the Lord Jesus does not come for selfish reasons. He comes to give, not to get. He comes that people may have 'life in Him' that is meaningful, purposeful, joyful, and eternal. We receive this abundant life the moment we accept Him as our Savior. [Not carefully thoughout - it is a 'gift', and we cannot have it of our own works nor merit - but, by the 'grace and mercy of God'. EVER REMEMBER THIS!
This word “abundant” in the Greek is perisson, meaning “exceedingly, very highly, beyond measure, more, superfluous, a quantity so abundant as to be considerably more than what one would expect or anticipate.”
In short, Jesus promises us a life far better than we could ever imagine, a concept reminiscent of 1 Corinthians 2:9: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” The apostle Paul tells us that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, and He does it by His power, a power that is at work within us if we belong to Him [Ephesians 3:20]. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
[*Please note that in a future post, we will explore the meaning of 'abundant life' in more detail'. But, for now, let us continue with 'immortality'.]
John 14:1-3 assumes not only a 'continuing existence' but also that for believers it will be with Jesus.
Peter says Christians have been given "new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish,spoil or fade". [1 Peter 1:3-4]. Later he states that this 'new birth' is "not of perishable seed, but of imperishable" [v. 23]. The judgment scenes of Revelation 20-22 display eternal life of bliss for believers and punishment for the rest. [We cannot pick and choose some of the Bible, and discard the rest. We accept the 'whole counsel of the Written Word'. Acts 20:27; Ephesians 2:1-3; 8-9]
Now, for our 'beginning', and keeping with our plan to keep posts short so that you may take your time, as the Holy Spirit will lead you to venture into the Holy Bible via the references in each post, this will be the end for today. On our next post, we shall consider what the Apostle Paul has written under the anointing of the Holy Spirit on this most important topic of 'immortality'. Please stay tuned.
Do not, I pray, miss this most invaluable 'time in the Presence of the Lord'. Amen. Amen.
