The Life: To be Experienced Now -- and Anticipated in Great Hope!
I have Eternal Life coursing through these veins of mine! And when this body, weak as it is, ceases to live, the life that is in me will raise this body to life on the last day! The day Jesus says, “Arise!”
Because His Life is my Life!
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 has passed from death unto life.
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 this is the judgement): 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 (believed unto life), unto the resurrection of life; — and they that have done evil (refused the life), unto the resurrection of damnation (self-condemnation). -- John 5:24-29
