Jesus Gives Us Peace, Not As The World Gives Peace

John 14:27, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Ephesians 2:14, For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Jesus is our peace! I love that truth. The world offers people peace through financial security, preventative medical testing, preparing in advance to have their bodies frozen in liquid nitrogen when they die (hoping to attain immortality with future scientific advances), storing away food in case there is famine, et cetera. But Jesus gives us the peace of eternal life, because Jesus is eternal life. 1st John 5:20, “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” 

The lost and dying world have it all wrong. They think backwards! If you didn't read the preceding link about the company Alcor, who freeze people's dead bodies in liquid nitrogen to store them for the future, then you really should. It is bizarre stuff! Alcor the last I checked charges $80,000 to remove your head and freeze it, and $150,000 to store your entire body upside down at 320 below zero Fahrenheit. Talk about an episode of The Outer Limits!

Dear friend, you can have immortality for free, just for the taking. Eternal life is a gift from God to them that believe the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen. Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” The Bible says that we are all guilty sinners (Romans 3:10-23). Death is the penalty for our sins, the wages that we have justly earned (Romans 6:23). This includes dying a second death in Hell forever (Revelation 20:12-15; 21:8). 

Thankfully, God the Father in His love sacrificed His only begotten Son, Jesus, Who gave His life on the cross to pay for our sins. Jesus died, was buried and resurrected three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Jesus shed His precious blood on the cross to pay for everyone's sins (1st Peter 1:18-19). God is offering to you, and anyone who wants it, a gift of eternal life (Ephesians 2:8-9). All you have to do is receive God's gift by faith alone in the Good News of Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

You don't need to pay Alcor $150,000 to freeze your lifeless body, hoping someday scientists will be able to clone your brain in a new body! If you want immortality friend, God Himself is promising it to you, as a free gift, if you'll simply take Him at His Word in the Holy Bible. Here is one of dozens of testimonies from Alcor's YouTube channel. This lady says she is now 56, and realizes she must someday die, and she has become a member of Alcor in hope of living forever. You should really watch this guy Jose give his Alcor testimony. He wants the most out of life! Oh brother! Most of these people use their life insurance policy to pay for having their body frozen in liquid nitrogen when they die. If you want life-extension technology, here's my favorite recommendation from John 3:16, “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.I don't know about you, but I feel much better having God's promise of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ, than I do relying upon men and science!!!

Oh friend, I am not trying to be mean or unkind, but you can KNOW that you have eternal life. 1st John 5:13, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.Hey, if you want to give your money, or sign your life insurance over to Alcor, knock your socks off! But why not receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior also, so you will then have GOD'S PROMISE of eternal life? John 11-25-26, Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?Forget Alcor, I'll take the King James Bible and Jesus!!!

What saith the Scripture? 2nd Timothy 1:8-11, “Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.” Boy, I love that! 

This is really sad! Listen to Andrew, and make sure you're sitting down, because this guy is funny. Listen to what he says! Oh dear friend, you can't take it with you! What saith the Scripture? 1st Timothy 6:7, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.” I have to stop watching these Alcor testimonies, because I'll be laughing for days to come! These people are deceived by the Devil. I promise you dear reader that there will NEVER be a future time when scientists are able to restore those frozen brains at Alcor into a new cloned body. It just won't happen! God simply wouldn't permit it. Men are so arrogant, aren't they? Man cannot even find a cure for the common cold, let alone restore your dead brain into a new body in the future. Men can manufacture a spaceship to transport a fancy robot to Mars, and analyze soil and the planet atmosphere; yet we cannot even prevent millions of people from starving to death on planet earth.

Not only will our spirit and soul live forever, but the Lord will give us a new immortal body. What saith the Scripture? Philippians 3:20-21, “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.The Lord will transform our mortal earthly body into an immortal body fashioned like unto His resurrected body:
1st Corinthians 15:52-55, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortalitySo when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
I thank God! I thank God for the Gospel. As Christian believers we have the hope and promise of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. Alcor has 2,000 members, hoping to achieve eternal life through science. I truly feel sorry for all of them! Rejoice my brothers and sisters in the Lord, for we are on the winning side in Jesus Christ. Jesus is our peace and eternal life!!!
