Our Heavenly Father says if we believe in Jesus and follow his word and live by His commandments we will have eternal life.
Eternal means lasting or existing forever without end or beginning. So Eternal life means we will live forever and there will be no end.
John 10: 28-30
and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.
Romans 6: 23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So if we are going to live forever where will we live? Heaven?
John 14: 2-3
Jesus says in My Father’s house there are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. 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 to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also
Heaven is beyond our comprehension. The Bible says,
1 Corinthians 2: 9
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
Isaiah 65: 21-23
They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; My chosen ones will long enjoy the works of their hands. They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them.
Isaiah 65: 25
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, The lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, Says the Lord.
How Can We Achieve Eternal Life?
God promises Eternal Life to all who believe in and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.
John 3: 16
For God so loved the world that He gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
Ephesians 2: 8-9 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and not of yourselves; it is a gift of God, not by works, least anyone should boast.
Matthew 7: 21
Jesus says “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord; shall inherit the Kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
The River Of Life
Revelation 22: 1-4
and he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servant’s shall serve Him,
They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever, and ever.
I think about Eternal Life every day, and how wonderful it will be. I, cannot believe that we are here just to be here, and that there is no other life after this one. I long for the truth and facts of where we come from and how powerful my Heavenly Father is. I, can feel Him so there is no doubt in my mind that He exist and that He loves us.
He has proven to be real by us being here. You have to have something to make something. You can’t get something from nothing.
As soon as I submitted my life to Jesus I began to see the works he has done in my life and that he has a place for me in His kingdom, in Heaven. This world is a scary place and I, cannot wait till I, can live in paradise. So accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, follow His teachings and learn what it means to be christian, thank Him for all He does and will do. Be ready to live forever in Heaven. Eternal Life will be more than great, it will be epic!
