At the beginning of time, God give light of life to the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. However, Adam and Eve did not believe the word of God: the TRUTH; they believed instead a lie, and as a consequence all humans were condemned to death (Genesis 3:13-24).
God gave life, but then came death. However, God then sent his only begotten Son Jesus, at the right time, in the fullness of time, to bring and to spread the word of life.
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. [FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE]” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).
GOD is a LIVING GOD and Death is an Enemy of GOD (Psalm 102:25-27). “[FOR HE IS NOT A GOD OF THE DEAD, BUT OF THE LIVING: FOR ALL LIVE UNTO HIM]” (Luke 20:38).
God sent Jesus to this earth to show the POWER OF GOD to overcome death!
“[FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL]” (1 John 3:8–9).
“Therefore as [BY THE OFFENSE OF ONE JUDGMENT CAME UPON ALL MEN TO CONDEMNATION]; even so [BY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ONE THE FREE GIFT CAME UPON ALL MEN UNTO JUSTIFICATION OF LIFE]” (Romans 5:18).
“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him” (1 John 4:9).
“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have [ETERNAL LIFE]: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not [COME TO ME, THAT YE MIGHT HAVE LIFE]” (John 5:39–40).
“Therefore doth my Father love me, because [I LAY DOWN MY LIFE, THAT I MIGHT TAKE IT AGAIN]. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. [I HAVE POWER TO LAY IT DOWN, AND I HAVE POWER TO TAKE IT AGAIN]. This commandment have I received of my Father” (John 10:17-18).
“I am the resurrection, and the life: [HE THAT BELIEVETH IN ME, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE]. And [WHOSOEVER LIVETH AND BELIEVETH IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE]. [BELIEVEST THOU THIS]?” (John 11:25-26).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, [IF A MAN KEEP MY SAYING, HE SHALL NEVER SEE DEATH] (John 8:51).
“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
Now, therefore, as THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE THINGS THAT ARE ETERNAL IS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST who died for us; for this purpose then WE SHOULD LIVE UNTO HIM AND NOT UNTO OURSELVES (2 Corinthians 5:15).
“[FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON] into the world to condemn the world; but [THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED]” (John 3:17).
“[FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO] them that perish foolishness; but unto [US WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:19).
“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).
“To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 5:11).
