Behold, I show you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in the twinkling of an eye: For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this mortal must put on immortality.
As we brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out: Having food and clothes, let us therefore be content. But follow godliness, faith, love, patience and meekness. Fight the good fight of faith: Lay hold of eternal life, to which you are called.
I charge you in the sight of God, who quickens all things; and before Christ Jesus, who alone has immortality, dwelling in the light which no Man can approach: Charge those who are rich in this world, that they should not be proud, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God; that they should be rich in good works, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold of eternal life.
In the Day of Wrath and Revelation of the righteous judgment of God, He will render to every man according to his deeds; to them who by patient continuance in well-doing seek immortality and eternal life, but to them who are contentious and do not obey the truth: Wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man who does Evil.
And such were some of you; but you are washed, you are sanctified, you are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Thus, says the Lord: For now, have I chosen and sanctified this house, that My Name may be there forever. Christ loved the church and gave himself for it: That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, that He might present it to himself a glorious church, that it should be holy.
Thus, we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, the beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through the sanctification of the spirit and belief in the truth: To open your eyes, and to turn you from the power of Satan to God, that you may receive the forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Christ Jesus. For the Elect, through the sanctification of the Spirit towards obedience, are according to the foreknowledge of God the Father.
Thus, says Jesus Christ: That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said: You must be born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible: By the Word of God, who lives and abides forever. We know that whosoever is born of God does not sin, but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that Wicked One does not touch him. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit of holiness, whose end is everlasting life.
Jesus said: Verily, verily, I say to you; unless a Man is born again of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Whoever is born of God overcomes the world: And this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from, and where it goes: So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
Thus, says the Lord: I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for my anger, even them that rejoice in my highness: Do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord; but be a partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God.
God has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace in Christ Jesus, who has abolished Death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
The Almighty said: My presence shall go with you and I will give you rest. I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the Name of the Lord before you; and I will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. And the Lord proclaimed: The Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth! Beware that you do not make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you go, unless it becomes a snare among you.
And everyone came, whose heart stirred him up, and whose spirit made willing. And He has filled them with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of work. These things have I written that you believe in the Name of the Son of God: That you may know that you have eternal life.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under Heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die. I said in my heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: For there is a time for every purpose and for every work. Whereas you do not know what shall happen tomorrow, for what is your life? It is a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Thus, says the Lord: It is the spirit that quickens, the flesh gains nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are life.
If you know that God is righteous, you know that everyone that does righteousness is born of Him. Beloved, let us love one another: For love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. See that no one renders Evil for Evil to anyone, but always follow what is good. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks: For this is the will of God, in Christ Jesus, concerning you; and the God of peace will sanctify you wholly. I pray God that your whole spirit and soul and body are preserved blameless up to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him: Before Him shall be gathered all nations and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. He shall set the sheep to His right hand: Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. Then shall He say to those on the left hand: Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: But the righteous into eternal life. Thus, says the Lord: For this cause did I come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone that is of the truth hears my voice; according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledgment of the truth which is godliness: In the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the world began; but has in due time manifested in his Word through preaching. And this is the record, that God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son: For life was manifested.
When a certain ruler asked: What shall I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus said: You know the commandments; do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother. Distribute to the poor and you shall have treasure in Heaven, and come, follow Me: That you do good, that you may be rich in good works, laying up in store a good foundation against the time to come, that you may lay hold of eternal life. He that loves his life shall lose it and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to eternal life: For whoever shall lose his life for My sake and the gospel's, shall save it. We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the Word of the Lord: And as many as were ordained to eternal life believed; that as sin had reigned to death, even so, might grace reign through righteousness to eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. And Jesus said: Verily, I say to you, there is no Man that has left his house for My sake, and the gospel's, that shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time, with persecutions; and in the world to come, eternal life.
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding: Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life. Though He was a Son, yet He learnt obedience by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation to all those who obey Him.
Thus, says the Lord: Verily, verily, I say to you; he who hears my Word, and believes in Him who sent Me, has everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death to life. How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Look at the fields, for they are white already to harvest. And he that reaps, receives wages and gathers fruit to eternal life. No man who wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him who has chosen him to be a soldier. And be careful, unless at any time your hearts become burdened with the cares of this life, so you are unaware when that Day comes upon you. Hope that is delayed makes the heart sick: But when its desire comes, it is a tree of life.
Happy is the man who finds wisdom and gets understanding: All her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold of her. The ear that hears the reproof of life abides among the wise: The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise. Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it: But the instruction of fools is folly. The wellspring of wisdom is as a flowing stream.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. The fear of the Lord tends to life: And he that has it shall abide satisfied, for he shall not be visited by Evil. The Spirit of God has made me, the breath of the Almighty has given me life, and with Jesus Christ is the fountain of life: In His light shall we see light.
Thus, says Jesus Christ: He who believes in Me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water: The Spirit, which they that believe should receive. For whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from Hell beneath: As Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so will we also walk in the newness of life. For they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Who knows the spirit of Man that goes upwards, and the spirit of the beast that goes downwards to the earth? And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly!
Thus, says the Almighty: I call Heaven and Earth to record this day, that I have set before you, life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore, choose life, that both you and your seed may live. Listen to My words: For they are life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh. And this is eternal life, that they might know the only true God and Jesus Christ.
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness but is in danger of eternal damnation; even as Sodom and Gomorrah gave themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. For who knows what is good for Man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spends as a shadow?
Whoever hates his brother is a murderer: And you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. They are of those that rebel against the light; they do not know its ways, nor abide in its paths: Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart. The Almighty draws the mighty with His power: And no man is sure of his life, his soul draws near the grave, and his life to the destroyers. God does not preserve the life of the wicked: But gives right to the poor.
But they denied the Holy One and desired a murderer to be granted to them. They killed the Prince of life, whom God then raised from the dead; of whom we are witnesses. Because they did not believe in God and did not trust in His salvation: God made a way for His anger, He did not spare their soul from death but gave their life over to pestilence. And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
And He said to them: Set your hearts on all the words which I testify among you this day, which you shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you: Because it is your life.
I will give power to my two witnesses and they shall prophesy, clothed in sackcloth. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt: Where our Lord was crucified. And after three days and a half, the Spirit of life from God will enter them, and they will stand upon their feet; and great fear will fall upon those who see them. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awaken, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Blessed is the man who endures temptation: For when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold of eternal life, to which you are called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. And he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
Hear instruction, and be wise, and do not refuse it: For who finds Jesus Christ finds life and shall obtain favor of the Lord. But he that sins against Him wrongs his own soul: All they that hate Him love death.
He who keeps his mouth keeps his life: But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction. The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: But violence covers the mouth of the wicked. As righteousness tends to life: He that pursues evil pursues it to his own death. He that follows righteousness and mercy finds life. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: But perverseness is a breach in the spirit. The thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy: Jesus Christ has come that all who believe in Him might have life. In Him is life, and life is the light of Man: He will deliver his soul from going into the pit and his life shall see the light.
Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter through the gates into the city. And there shall not enter anything that defiles, neither whoever works abominations or lies: But those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
And He showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. And He said to me: It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To him who is thirsty, will I give the fountain of the water of life freely. Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Thus, says the Lord: It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh gains nothing: The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. Thus, he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Jesus said: I am the way, the truth, and the life: No man comes to the Father, but by Me. I am the resurrection and the life; he that believes in Me, though he was dead, yet he shall live. And if any man shall take away from the words of the Book of this Prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: And the dead were judged according to those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And they shall come forth: those that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done Evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
And I know that His commandment is life everlasting: I hold forth the Word of life, that I may rejoice in the Day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither labored in vain. For the commandment is a lamp, and the law is light, and reproofs of instruction are the way to life. The labor of the righteous leads to life: The fruit of the wicked to sin. In the way of righteousness is life and, in its pathway, there is no death. But humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honor, and life; because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and there are few that find it.
And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of those that remain of this Evil family: They have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters. Arise, cry out in the night: Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord; lift your hands towards Him for the life of your young children, who faint with hunger in every street.
The Almighty has caused men to ride over our heads, we went through fire and through water: But He has brought us out into a wealthy place. It is God who avenges me: He did fly upon the wings of the wind! All those who were in the dry land, in whose nostrils was the breath of life, died. But the Lamb who is in the middle of the throne feeds us and leads us to living fountains of waters. So, when this mortal shall have put on immortality, then what is written will be brought to pass: Death is swallowed up in victory!
