What does the Bible teach concerning everlasting life?

Share |

Everlasting life is unspeakably wonderful bliss, peace, righteousness, joy and glory, when we can see the Lamb of God face to face and be free of sin and its curse. Everlasting life is a spiritual type of life. When our bodies have been glorified, they will no longer have temporal needs. We will not partake of earthly food in heaven, nor will there be marriage there, but we will be like the angels.

Rev. 21:4: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.

Ps. 17:15: I will behold Thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.

Ps. 16:11: In thy presence is fulness of joy; at they right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Rom. 8:18: The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Rom. 14:17: For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Rev. 22:3-4: And there shall be no more curse; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him, and they shall see His face.

Mark 12:25: When they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage: but are as the angels which are in heaven.
