This web site was created to glorify God through the words of His Son, Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that as you read Jesus' words you would be spiritually enlightened, enriched, and encouraged. Additionally, we have included biblical and historical information about Jesus' early life and His ministry on earth.

      Eternal Life

The bible teaches that our spirits never die. Jesus affirms this truth by saying It is the spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing…John 6:63. This means that life in our physical bodies is solely dependent on the presence of our spirits. Without the spirit there is no life! Furthermore, Jesus teaches that answering the question about immortality as it applies to our eternal destiny has to be done in this life, because there is no opportunity after death – “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!Matthew 3:2.  While some choose to deny the reality of hell, Jesus confirms that it is a reality - “for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.” Matthew 5:30. This verse is one of several throughout the Gospels and Revelation where Jesus directly refers to hell and what happens there – “And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenchedMark 9:45. Jesus validated the truth about heaven and hell in the account of the rich man and Lazarus, the beggar. First, He stated specifically that both men died. He then went on to give us a clear insight into what happened, and where they went after their deaths. -. “So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom.–Luke 16:22-23. Explicitly, Jesus stated the rich man’s description of Hell as this place of torment" in contrast with the poor man resting in “Abraham's bosom”, a place of peace – Luke 16:19-24.

The words of Jesus' recorded in John 14:3 -"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 you may be also..." represent God’s divine guarantee of eternal life to all who believe on Jesus Christ and accept Him as savior - " For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son ,that whoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life" John 3:16.  Jesus’ sacrificial death, burial and miraculous resurrection did not only bring us salvation, it also sealed our eternal destiny- “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also –John 14:19. Physical death is inevitable and eternity is real. Therefore, we must prepare for both events on earth. We should not wait until our final hour like the thief on the cross to have assurance of our eternal security –Luke 23:43. Confessing our sins to God and accepting Jesus as savior is not about religion. It is about being spiritually born again in Jesus Christ, and having a personal relationship with God the Father here on earth, and eternally – “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. John 10:28.

Remember...

  • Eternal life is either with God or without Him

  • Life does not end at the grave

  • We must prepare for eternity in this life

  • God's plan of salvation guarantees eternal life

  • Jesus' death, burial and miraculous resurrection  gave us eternal life
