“And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”—John 17: 5.
““He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and he hath set the world upon them….The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed”.-2Sam 2: 8, 10
“The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. -Matt 13: 31, 32
“VERILY, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU IF A MAN KEEP MY SAYING HE SHALL NEVER SEE DEATH”-John 8:51
“… Christ spoke of life everlasting. He said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” (John 6: 47) By this statement it is clear: for a man to win the prize which is proffered, everlasting life, then he can expect for that “LIFE” to “LAST” for “EVER”. Thus he is promised from the Master Communicator, the WORD “EVERLASTING LIFE”. If Christ is to be believed, to secure that “gift”, a man must simply believe on Christ. Therefore, any who conforms with this specific prerequisite need not be concerned with death. Everlasting life, no matter how our minds twisted that simple concept yesterday, cannot be interpreted to be life, then death, then resurrection to life again. Thus, by virtue of the Lord’s carefully articulated words repeated several times during His testimony, from the moment a man believes on Him, such a man is guaranteed to live forever…”
