Finishing today, April 27, 2019, this Post 7, multiple part series, [April 6, 13, 20, 2019]. For a season we have looked in more details on the subject of 'mortality' and 'immortality' on our weekly Saturday Series. The series is straightforward, but, in May, we will continue with some 'topics' to which we promised to return in a 'Series 8' set of posts with some 'asides' but, 'important' sub-topics, to which I made 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]
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
Some Definitions and Holy Bible Passages for you to 'search'. [Acts 17:11]
'Immortality', from the New Testament; Post 7 D-AM, April 27, 2019
Immortality is a corollary to references to 'existence after death' or to 'the resurrection in general'.
It is Paul who gives the clearest explanations of immortality. It is a gift made available through the work of Christ [Romans 2:7; 2 Timothy 1:10], the lasting reward of the believer in contrast to the perishable wreath won by the athlete [1 Corinthians 9:25].
At the same time, however, Paul asserts that the wicked face continuing, conscious alienation from God and positive punishment [2 Thessalonians 1:9]. Oh, do not miss this!! Yes, there is life after death - bliss or hell.
[An aside. I know that many cannot fathom nor have anything to do with a 'God' who 'eternally' punishes the wicked. But be apprised - He is the 'Creator', and He is 'sovereign' and can do as He chooses. Study and search [Acts 17:111] such as the Old Testament Book of Job for a better understanding of the 'ways' of God. Read the 'entire book'. Be blessed. Amen. Amen.]
First Corinthians 15:35-57 contains the most lengthy discussion of immortality, but is actually only a corollary to Paul's affirmation of the resurrection. Here Paul clearly sets forth the fact of an incorruptible, permanent existence in contrast to our present condition. However, as the planted seed and the stalk that grows from it are both the same yet different, so the future spiritual-immortal body will be both a continuation of and different from the physical-mortal one.
Second Corinthians 5:1-10 affirms that the future, eternal, heavenly "house" [body] is the present possession of believers ["we have," ver. 1]. In spite of the present undesirable state, a mortal one in which "we groan" [vers. 2-4], the Spirit is "the guarantee" of the better one that awaits the believer [ver. 5].
Furthermore, Paul maintains that to be "away from the body" is to be "at home with the Lord" [ver. 8].
Similarly, Philippians 1:20-21 asserts that through the believer's union with Christ the future [immortal] life is a present possession. Philippians 2:10-21 has the same expectation of a changed or transformed body, by implication an immortal one, as the Corinthians correspondence. Indeed, Paul assumes that immortality as a permanent, incorruptible, never-ending state and life not only await the Christian after death but is actually the present possession of the believer.
Today, for shorter posts to be in this area, we will have a Post D-PM, this afternoon. So, please return. Thank you. Amen. Amen.
