Can we live forever? Can we be forever young and healthy? Is there
a fountain of youth? So far science and medical research has failed
to stop the aging process and death.
Yet there is hope, but this
hope in not in man but is what God has promised. Please take the
ponder the following inspirational words and you will see there is
something to hope for beyond this life and the grave.
The Peasall Sisters sing the traditional bluegrass song "O Come Angel
My latest sun is sinking fast,
My race is nearly run;
My strongest trials now are past,
My triumph is begun.
Oh, come, angel band,
Come and around me stand;
Oh, bear me away on your snowy wings
To my eternal home;
Oh, bear me away on your snowy wings
To my immortal home.
I know I'm near the holy ranks
Of friends and kindred dear--
I hear the waves on Jordan's banks,
The crossing must be near.
I've almost reached my heav'nly home,
My spirit loudly sings;
Thy holy ones, behold, they come!
I hear the noise of wings.
Oh, bear my longing heart to Him,
Who bled and died for me;
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin,
And gives me victory.
 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good
thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal
and they are they which testify of me. - Jesus
 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou
hast the words of eternal life.
 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his
life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give
eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true
God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
 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
 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign
through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for
us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the
which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but
the things which are not seen are eternal.
 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were
dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands,
eternal in the heavens.
 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise
God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession
before many witnesses.
 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the
time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they
may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal
 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs
according to the hope of eternal life.
 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation
unto all them that obey him;
 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood
entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal
redemption for us.
 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal
Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience
dead works to serve the living God?
 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that
by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were
under the first testament, they which are called might receive the
promise of eternal inheritance.
 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear
witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the
Father, and was manifested unto us;)
 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal
 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no
murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
 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.
 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an
understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him
that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and
 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed
and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes.
 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there
be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be
any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of
promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God
to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge
to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and
stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door
into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a
thief and a robber.
 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
am the door of the sheep.
 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and
shall go in and out, and find pasture.
[ Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we
shall all be changed,
 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for
the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.
 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal
must put on immortality.
 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and
mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our
Lord Jesus Christ.
 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that
your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
