Live forever … according to science. 10 scientific breakthroughs.


10 Scientific Breakthroughs  … Cheat Death and Live Forever

This post is a collection of links to articles on living forever according to various sources which are not linked to the bible or any particular religion.

The first article mentions 10 Scientific Breakthroughs That Could Help Us Cheat Death And Live Forever and is from Business Insider. The article mentions that Google is working on a death defying initiative.

Rockstars of Aging

The second link leads us to a write-up about growing older by Marc Middleton. His book ‘Rockstars of Aging’ is interesting because it is made up of interviews and stories of hundreds of men and women who are or were to busy enjoying life to pay attention to society telling them that they’re supposed to be dying.

In contrast to the first link about scientific breakthroughs, Marc’s book is not based upon surveys, scientific research or the opinions of scholars. His book is based upon extensive, first-hand experience interviewing and observing active centenarians, nonagenarians and octogenarians. I thoroughly enjoyed the read because it is all about real life people simply living life to the fullest.

Many opinions on living forever

Research on the world wide web threw up stacks of opinions from various sources such as an article from Reuters,  ‘Who wants to live forever? Scientist sees aging cured’ and an article on ‘How to Live Forever?’ by Frank Swain writing for Future BBC. The Economist in ‘explaining the world daily’ talks about  ‘How to Live Forever?’ and How Stuff Works wonders if ‘Humans Can Live Forever?’ The Hollywood Reporter talks about ‘How to Live Forever: The (Mad?) Science Hollywood Is Using to “Cure” Death’ and the LordsPub tells us about Australia’s oldest person and how biblical figures such as Adam and Noah lived for hundreds of years, which to me seems like forever.

People’s Encyclopedia

This article wouldn’t be complete without asking the people, aka Wikipedia’s opinion on the subject of living forever.

Forever, eternally, never ending

The above articles from the web about living forever are according to science and worldly opinions. None actually, other than Wikipedia’s article on immortality, address living forever as in ‘forever, eternally, never ending.’
It is the last three forever’s that I am interested in finding out more about.

To find out more about the true ‘forever, eternally, never ending’ I turned to the experts, and our Creator and His Son tell us in-depth about this kind of living forever. I believe whatever they tell me about any subject because I’ve tried out their directions in my life and following their directions always brings the desired outcome. Not one of their directions has ever failed me.

The LORD spoke from heaven Exodus 20:22

History on living forever

History tells us that a whole bunch of people, a few million of them, witnessed God speaking from heaven with promises galore. His Son came to live out some of these promises and a another bunch of people eventually watched Him ascend up to heaven. This is after all the abuse HE copped for being a good guy.

About that last laugh …

What is this blog about?


Thank you for visiting.

My name is Mimi and I am the editor of the Live Forever how to blog. Welcome and thank you for stopping by.

What is this blog about?

There is only one authority on living forever and to find out about eternal life I decided to go to The Authority. This blog is about the truth of it all according to Scripture, God’s Holy Word.

This may turn out to be different from what the different denominations, church doctrine and religious leaders tell us. It may not line up with the popular understanding of ‘everyone [sort of] goes to Heaven.’ Some common myths will be dispelled on this blog and any potential treading on toes will be unintentional. Don’t shoot the messenger, I’ll be merely quoting from Scripture and list together all the occasions where references are made to Living Forever.

There is only One who knows

There is only One who knows, Our Creator, and He wrote a manual. This manual is easily understood by the average layperson who has genuine interest and takes the time to read it, and this book really does not need a massive amount of interpreting. This howto manual is freely available to all of us and I’ll be quoting from this manual, which is also known as the Bible.

To view all posts so far on this topic click in the right column under ‘Categories’ the words ‘Live Forever.’

According to God’s Word

This blog is about living forever according to GOD’s Holy Word; Sola Scriptura. Not according to my own personal opinion or anyone else’s opinion either, but simply looking at what Scripture tells us about living forever. We all have an idea, or more accurately stated; we all have a personal opinion of some kind, of what Heaven is all about. But the intention of my blog is that I note wherever in the bible references are made to the words  ‘living forever’ and variants thereof, so that eventually an understanding will emerge of the Truth of Living Forever according to Scripture.

Please don’t get me into trouble and  read my disclaimer with regards to my authority on this subject.

Thank you LORD!

Over the past decade I’ve reflected on issues of life and death because of various close calls and because, days before he took his own life, my favourite cousin asked me, ‘How long do you expect to live for?’

I started this blog because … I am still alive!

Praise to GOD, thank you LORD for answering our prayers. Yep, GOD made me laugh alright! My entire life has been rebuild with the help of my faith and specifically GOD’s Word.

I doubt that I need credentials to be grateful and share with the people close to me, but I dug deep and found some just the same to share with anyone who wants to hear about my qualifications. I love nothing better than to share the joy, love and peace which my family and I enjoy because of the blessings of GOD’s Word. I truly am head over heels.

Life For Evermore


Life For Evermore … a blessing

I thought that I was going to die but instead I survived and found out that there is a manual that tells us how to live forever. How cool is that?

For the last six  months or so I’ve listed all the occasions where the words ‘live for ever’ are mentioned in my bible. The amount of time these words are mentioned may differ in the various bible translations. In the bible translation I am using at the moment, the King James,  the last six times the words ‘live for ever’ were mentioned are to be found in the book of Revelation.

In a search throughout the King James translation of the bible the words ’live for ever’ come up 28 times in total but only around 19 of these apply to living forever and around 7 of these occasions were royal greetings. That leaves 12 other occasions where the words ‘live for ever’ are mentioned.
Starting in July last year I’ve listed all of these occasions. The very first time the word’s ‘live for ever’ occur in the bible is where God said,

Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

This was after Adam and Even disobeyed God’s commandment which resulted in them being banned from the garden of Eden.

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Adam and Eve discovered that living forever more goes hand in hand with obedience to our Creator.

I’ve reposted the video because I couldn’t even find it back on my own blog. It is embedded in the first post I wrote, which can be found at the bottom of this really long blogpost that contains all the posts I’ve done on living for ever. Or the video can be found as part of the first post, on its own when I explain where the concept of living for ever comes from.

The Blessing of Life for Evermore

Apart from the previous posts I’ve written, where the words ‘live for ever’ are mentioned, there are other occasions in the bible where living for ever is referred to. It is also mentioned for instance in Psalm 133 as quoted below. And what we discover here is that life for evermore is not to be taken for granted but is a blessing which the LORD bestows upon his faithful and loyal followers.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

I like promises and blessings.

I like promises and blessings as much as the next person. What I don’t like is when people misinterpret very clear manuals and take things for granted. For the brief period that my family attended church we sat in pews next to well-meaning parishioners who all seemed pretty comfy in their ‘sureness of being saved.’

It must be wonderful to have such confidence in one’s salvation. All I can think of is the occasions were Jesus referred to a humble tax collector and a Samaritan, who both were doing the right thing and Jesus contrasted them against the so-called ‘religious’ folk.

Just saying that according to scripture ‘living forever’ is not set aside specifically and exclusively for the ‘religious,’ those with their bums on church pews or kneeling down in synagogues.

According to scripture the blessing of living forever is promised to any of us who wants to grab hold of it and decides to abide by GOD’s rules and be part of His posse.

Love to hear your thoughts. Thank you for sharing with me.

Him that liveth for ever and ever


The last six times

The last six times (18-23) that the words ‘live forever’ are mentioned in the bible is in the book of Revelation.

The book of Revelation is understood to have been written by the apostle John when he was imprisoned on the isle of Patmos (app 85-95 AD) and the first chapter of the book of Revelation begins as follows,

The revelation of Jesus

Each and every time the words ‘live for ever’ are mentioned in the Book of Revelation refer to Him that liveth for ever.’ Him that liveth for ever is our Creator and His Son, as follows:

I am alive for evermore

 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Give glory and honour and thanks

 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

Worship him that liveth for ever and ever

The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Amen

And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Who created heaven … and the earth … and the sea

And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.

The wrath of God

And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

The wrath of God? Why? What does the wrath of God have to do with living forever?

As we have seen in previous posts, the promise to live for ever is closely intertwined with living according to parameters set by our Creator.  The book of Revelation stands as a warning to those who choose not to follow the moral guidelines which were set for humanity. It is comforting reading for those who try to do the right thing and feel thwarted in their efforts. The book of Revelation is also a loud and clear warning to all those who try to convey GOD’s Word to others, that one should never add to nor subtract from scripture, so as not to misrepresent God’s Holy Word.

Do not add nor subtract

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 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 from the things which are written in this book.

On that note please read my disclaimer where I beg my readers to please don’t get me into trouble and urge everyone to grab a bible and start reading. It is the best read!

On the last page of the last chapter in the book of Revelation it is mentioned that,

Blessed are they that do his commandments

Blessed are they that do HIS commandments

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

On the very last page of the bible we’re told one more time by Jesus to follow God’s moral guidelines for the right to the tree of life.

Today’s post ends my search for the words ‘living for ever’ in the bible. Click here to read all the posts on living forever. And click here and here and here to read summaries on the posts about living forever.

Let me know what you think. I know that what the Bible tells us can be different from what the different denominations tell us. Share your thoughts below in the comments.
