    The way I see his statement; Paul is juxtaposing mortality with immortality. In other words; Christ died mortal but was raised from the dead immortal.

    †. Rom 6:9 . . For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.

    When Christ's believing followers die, they too die mortal, but like him, they too will be raised from the dead immortal.

    †. 1Cor 15:52-53 . . In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    But that's neither here nor there because this thread isn't about immortality; it's about eternal life; which, according to John 5:26 and 1John 1:1-2, Christ already had before he died.

    The Lord specifically said in this verse that if we allow the Holy Ghost to LIVE in us, He will make our mortal bodies alive with the zoe life that raised Jesus from the dead.

    This is one reason which it's not possible for me to get sick anymore. I believe what God did thru Jesus versus what this world says.

    The world is trying to sell us sickness and disease and many Christians fall for hit and so many get sick and die early.

    Personally, I reject sickness and disease just like I do the temptation to sin which is all quite comical considering the source.

    The devil is a liar!

    †. Rev 20:15 . . And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

    I'm going to revise that passage a bit to bring out something. Watch for the change.

    "And if anyone's name was not written into the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."

    In other words: the purpose of the Great White Throne event depicted at Rev 20:11-15 isn't to determine who qualifies to get their name registered in the book of life. Rev 20:15 says that when it's people's turn to be called on the carpet, a search will be made to find their names in the book. In other words; people's names had better already be in the book before they're called to appear before the Throne or the outcome of their hearing will be very disagreeable.

    Well; I already know ahead of time that nobody subpoenaed to appear before the Great White Throne will find their names in the book of life. How do I know? Easy. According to Rev 20:12-13, they'll all be DOA (dead on arrival).

    Whatever you do, don't discuss this with one of those OSAS / extreme grace people because strife will come bubbling up out of them!
