That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but 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 everlasting life. John 3:15-16
All lives started from the Life. He who claimed to be the Life is Jesus Christ. (John 14:6) Living things are not eternal from the beginning of time. The genesis of time and existence is the eternal life. He who does not have the beginning and ending is the “eternal life”. Only the Life can give eternal life. Humans birth to a child and living things do multiply their own species.
The Holy Spirit is the only one who can bestow everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. Everlasting Life in Christ Jesus is an uninterrupted melody of life according to the composition of a divine Composer.
Jesus Christ is not the beginning of life, the first creation of the almighty. The Word is before the beginning and was before everything that was made as recorded in the book of Genesis.
By definition, everlasting Life never ceases, never ends and therefore should not perish. Every true believer in Christ has everlasting Life. Those who believe in Him and follow His words shall never die. Our bodies die but not our soul and spirit. Our dead bodies will be resurrected into new life as promised by the Resurrection and the Life. (John 11:25)
