Our hope of eternity

Death seems so final to us when a loved one dies,but to the believer we know this life is a temporary place we’re just passing through. This life is not by any means all there is,there is so much to look forward to after our time on earth has passed.

As christians we have the promise of eternal life awaiting us as Jesus said “And this is life eternal,that they might know thee the only true God,and Jesus Christ,whom thou hast sent”(John 17:3).

It is written Jesus was tempted as we are yet was without sin. Through our sincere repentance and fear of God we gain salvation for our soul’s (Hebrews 5:7-9). 7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Long before our Lord was even born He was fortold of as we see in a vision given to Daniel of His coming eternal kingdom that would never end!(Daniel 7:13,14). 13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

(1 John 5:11-13) 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
