GOD is a LIVING GOD. “[FOR HE IS NOT A GOD OF THE DEAD, BUT OF THE LIVING: FOR ALL LIVE UNTO HIM]” (Luke 20:38). Therefore, the Children of God will NOT SEE DEATH (John 5:24; 8:51; 11:25-26).
“Blessed be the LORD, who [DAILY] loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. [HE THAT IS OUR GOD IS THE GOD OF SALVATION]; and unto God the LORD belong the [ISSUES FROM DEATH]” (Psalm 68:19-20).
Let us be reminded that the Apostle Paul said: “[FOR TO ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST, AND TO DIE IS GAIN]” (Philippians 1:21).
“For ye are dead, and your [LIFE] is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).
“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).
“Knowing that Christ being [RAISED FROM THE DEAD DIETH NO MORE]; [DEATH HATH NO MORE DOMINION OVER HIM]” (Romans 6:9).
Jesus also said: “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).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, [THE HOUR IS COMING, AND NOW IS], when the [DEAD SHALL HEAR THE VOICE] of the Son of God: and [THEY THAT HEAR SHALL LIVE]. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. [MARVEL NOT AT THIS: FOR THE HOUR IS COMING, IN THE WHICH ALL THAT ARE IN THE GRAVES SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE], And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:25-29).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall [NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that [HEARETH MY WORD], and [BELIEVETH] on him that sent me, hath [EVERLASTING LIFE], and shall not come into condemnation; but is [PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE]” (John 5:24).
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: [THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU, THEY ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE]” (John 6:63).
“[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).
