The Word of GOD lives forever!


GOD’s Word lives forever!

The seventeenth time we find the words ‘live forever’ in the bible is when they are mentioned in 1 Peter as follows,

Being born again … by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever …  the word of the Lord endureth for ever.

The context is as follows from 1 Peter 1:22-25 ‘Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.’

The author of the book of 1 Peter is encouraging those who are born again by the word of GOD to love one and other fervently and sincerely. And we are to have an appreciation for the fact that as people we come and go, much like grass and flowers do too.

GOD’s Word is eternal

It is pointed out to us that in contrast to our bodies, God’s Word is eternal and goes on forever and ever which makes it more precious than anything else. It is this precious Word that we follow and the guidelines in this Word, given by God our Father, that we adhere to.

The Word of GOD stands forever Isaiah 40:8

The Word of GOD liveth and abideth for ever.

There is much debate about the books of Peter and the question remains if they were written by Peter or not? Regardless if these books were written by the apostle Peter all those years ago, when the writer of the book of Peter links the truth with love and GOD’s Word being eternal, he echoes the words of the prophets of old. And when he mentions, ‘The word of GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever,’ these words are as true now as they were then.

The word of the LORD endureth forever

Around one third of the world’s population lives by and holds unto His Holy Word.

The writer then reiterates the words of the prophet Isaiah when he continues with,  ‘For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever …’

Of all the celebrities in the world, of all the designers, sports people, writers, politicians etc etc. whose word lives on and on?

It is the Word of GOD, his prophets and His SON which lives on and on and is adhered to by over a third of our world population. Long after Jesus was crucified on the cross, His and His Father’s Word and actions live on in the hearts and minds of a couple of billion people world wide.

Around one third of the world’s population lives by and holds unto His Holy Word.

So yes, GOD lives and abides for ever, as does His Word and the legacy of His SON who promised those who follow him eternal life.

With GOD all things are possible … true story


What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Someone asks Jesus how to obtain eternal life and He responds by saying, ‘If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.’

When the person says that he kept the commandments from his youth and asks if there is anything else left for him to do, Jesus responds by saying, ‘If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.’
When the young man hears that, he walks away feeling all sad because he is quite rich and probably finds it hard to imagine leaving all his stuff behind.

Jesus observes this and notes that it is nigh impossible for a rich person to enter heaven. When his disciples hear this, they fall over backwards in amazement, isn’t being rich equal to being good and blessed? If this is not the case, who then can be saved?

Jesus benignly looks at his disciples and explains that indeed, to be saved as a rich person is not a likely scenario, but with GOD all things are possible.

True story

Around fourteen years ago I left all my stuff behind, I’d become quite ill from working all hours in stressful surroundings for a similar amount of time. The only option I could see was to bundle my children and bedding in a trailer and to leave behind all I worked so hard for to find a more peaceful life for us. At times the going was pretty tough but we never looked back and kept on moving forward.

There were occasions where I hit rock bottom and one particular time stands out in my mind where my health was rapidly declining and I desperately needed medical attention and was not able to get the help I needed due to crippling debt and my frail health. I was not even able to get off the bed, let alone get in the car to find treatment.
I prayed with all my might. I wasn’t praying for riches, I had left all that behind and quite happily so. I wasn’t praying for myself, I was praying that my children wouldn’t become orphans. I prayed for survival. I prayed for treatment that would get me back on my feet. I figured at the time that I needed $15,000 to get me back up and running as well as get some of my creditors of my back.

With GOD all things are possible.

I said,  ‘LORD, I know that with you all things are possible, and I need around $15000 and I need it right now.’ The next day I received a message that a completely unexpected $15000 cheque was being written in my name. Within days that cheque was in the mail and I was able to obtain the care I needed at the time and take some of the pressure off the financial woes and worries I was experiencing. My name was slightly different at the time, hence the black-out. But the cheque was written out to me. This is a true story. Within one day of praying for 15000 dollars I, completely unexpected and out of the blue, received that exact amount when I reminded the LORD of what his SON told his followers about the powers of GOD.

Jesus tells us that it is near impossible for a rich person to enter into the kingdom of GOD but that with GOD all things are possible. Jesus also tells us that every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for his name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Whatever your situation

Whatever your situation, I’d like to remind you that with GOD all things are possible and GOD hears prayer. If GOD pays attention to someone like me, who continuously mucks up, he’ll be sure to hear you too when you call upon Him.

WIth GOD all things are possible

Free scripture graphic

Feel free to use the above scripture graphic in your life to remind yourself that with GOD all things are possible. If you’re like the apostles and left everything and everyone to follow Jesus or if you find yourself in a tight spot for whatever reason, it is good to remember that GOD is in control and with Him all things are possible.

When I used those powerful words all those years ago, when I said and believed with all my heart that with GOD all things are possible and I trusted in Him to bring about good results, I didn’t even have to wait a full day for my prayer to be answered. GOD has answered all my prayers always and I know that He’ll do the same for you too. Just ask.

I pray that GOD may bless you and yours and that you may live forever!

If you have any stories about God answering prayers for you and/or your loved ones, I would love to hear about it.

Do you believe that you’ll live forever?


Do you believe that you’ll live forever?

It is rather simple, we either believe that we may live forever or we don’t.

Terry is gone to heaven

A few months ago I spoke with a family member, Bob, after his dad Terry just passed away. I asked Bob how he and his family were dealing with the passing away of their patriarch. Neither Bob nor Terry were or are religious in any way that I am aware of. In actual fact I distinctly remember Terry to be very anti any religion of any kind. Just the same, I was not even mildly surprised when Bob replied, ‘oh the kids are fine, they know that Terry is gone to heaven.’

This is indeed my experience with most people, religious or not, everyone seems to think, or likes to believe, that everyone goes to heaven. It’s a lovely thought till you pause for a moment and realise that heaven would then look, pretty much like what we have here now. And what we have here now isn’t what most of us imagine heaven to be like.

I wonder if I’m the only one that feels something is not adding up when non-religious people state with conviction that we all go to heaven. I thought that heaven was a biblical concept but hey, I could be wrong and there may well be lotsa different heavens I’ve never heard about and have no knowledge of.

Guidelines for entry

Regardless of what I think, most people I know seem to believe that they’ll live forever but very few actually consider that there may be guidelines and parameters involved.
It’s a given that we all go to heaven, right? Not according to scripture. This is what my Bible tells me,

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Many churches teach people that they are ‘saved’ as long as they profess to have faith and believe in Jesus. I know lotsa people who believe in Jesus and what did Jesus himself say about finding the way to life? He said, ‘few there be that find it.’

Jesus would not have said that ‘only a few of us will find life’ if just faith and belief in Him would do the job; because there are stacks of us who have oodles of faith and believe in Him as the Son of GOD. So there has to be more to it. For starters we may just have to do the blatantly obvious, and be a decent person.

Because we may have different opinions on how to go about that, Jesus gives quite specific instructions on how to treat each other. How about treating others the way we would like to be treated ourselves?

Jesus said,

And as ye would that men should do to you,
do ye also to them likewise
.

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them:
for this is the law and the prophets.

His commandment is life everlasting

As a Jewish prophet, Jesus refers here to his Father’s law and the teachings of the prophets.

For I have not spoken of myself;
but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment,
what I should say, and what I should speak.

And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
whatsoever I speak therefore,
even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

If you know of any other prerequisites you can share these in the comments.

He that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.


The fifteenth time that the words ‘live for ever’ are mentioned.

I am the living bread which came down from heaven:
if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever:
and the bread that I will give is my flesh,
which I will give for the life of the world.

The sixteenth time that the words ‘live for ever’ are mentioned.

 This is that bread which came down from heaven:
not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead:
he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

I am the resurrection and the lifeIn context the text reads

Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man,
and drink his blood,
ye have no.
life in you.

Whoso eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood,
hath eternal life;
and I will raise him up
at the last day.
For my flesh is meat indeed,
and my blood is drink indeed. 

He that eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood,
dwelleth in me,
and I in him.

As the living Father hath sent me,
and I live by the Father:
so he that eateth me,
even he shall live by me.

This is that bread which came down from heaven:
not as your fathers did eat manna,
and are dead:
he that eateth this bread
shall live for ever.

.. Doth this offend you?

It is the spirit that quickeneth;
the flesh profiteth nothing:
the words that I speak unto you,
they are spirit,
and they are life.

But there are some of you that believe not.

    Therefore said I unto you,
that no man can come unto me,
except it were given unto him
of my Father.

Jesus, thou hast the words
of eternal life.
And we believe and are sure
that thou art that Christ,
the Son of the living God.

at the last day
