The True Immortals 

As the Father hath life in himself; so bath he given to the Son to have life in himself. John 5:26
Samuel "Sam" Wyatt


Our Saviour Jesus Christ, ... hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. (2 Timothy 1:10) …I am the resurrection, and the life. (John 11:25) …because I live, ye shall live also. (John 14:19) We are made “…partakers of Christ”, (Hebrews 3:14) “…partakers of the Holy Ghost”, (Hebrews 6:4) “…partakers of the divine nature.” (2 Peter 1:4) The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” “Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:45, 51, 52) “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” “…that liveth for ever and ever.” (Revelation 4:8, 9) “…the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; who only hath immortality...” (1 Timothy 6:15, 16) “…unto the King eternal, immortal...be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (1 Timothy 1:17)  

In the days following the creation men were living hundreds of years, today few men live to even see one hundred. What has happened between then and now? The answer is simple yet is just as astounding as in the days of Noah, "...the wickedness of man was great in the earth…" (Genesis 6:5); the answer is sin. Methuselah lived to be six hundred sixty nine years old, but when you hold that up to immortality it's like a snow flake in a blizzard. So think a minute, which would you rather be, the snow flake or the blizzard? Personally I say neither, why, because they both come to an end. The point is we need to look beyond that which will end but to that which has no end and there is only One who holds that power. God is from everlasting to everlasting and has given to His only Begotten Son that same status. Jesus that Son, say to us today that He can give that same status (gift) to "..whom he will" (John 5:21). As we look around us we see death everywhere that is because of the first Adam which sinned in the Garden. Yet another Adam has entered into the world and "knew no sin" and is immortality having the keys of "death and hell" in His possession. Death and destruction does not have to be your lot, you need only to believe, obey and trust in Him who conquered death and the grave. Let no man deceive you, the only way to get to heaven is in the Bible, the Holy Word of God.  God’s Word tells us that Jesus is the only way, He is the only truth and He is the only One who will be able to say to you, “Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom” and you shall be among “The True Immortals”.  You will be with those who will sing praises throughout the endless ages, live in that city not made with hands; lit by God and the Lamb.  There shall be no sadness only joyous rejoicing forever and ever, for Jesus has given you life making you “The True Immortals”.
