The gift of immortality and eternal life which Yahuwah has promised to all His children is His most precious gift to man. It was to make possible the bestowal of this gift that Yahushua went to Calvary. He died that we might live. Through His stripes we shall be healed of the malady of sin and freed from the sentence of eternal death. We shall receive a gift of life that will measure with the life of Yahuwah.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of Yahuwah is eternal life through Yahushua, the Anointed, our Master." Romans 6:23.

This Life Transitory

1. How are we shown that man does not naturally possess eternal life?

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of Yahuwah is eternal life through Yahushua, the Anointed, our Master.” Romans 6:23.

Answer: The doctrine of the natural immortality of the soul is one error with which the enemy is deceiving man. This error is well-nigh universal. But who told men that they would not die? Who told them that Yahuwah has reserved a portion of His universe where the wicked are to suffer, through the ceaseless ages of eternity, without a particle of hope? It was the serpent. Yahuwah said that sinners would die. Satan declares that they will not die. Many believe the oft-repeated lies of the serpent to be genuine truth.

2. What things will be seen in the lives of those who receive the gift of everlasting life?

“But now being made free from sin, and become servants to Yahuwah, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.” Romans 6:22.

NOTE: ‘To those that ask Him, [Yahushua] imparts the Holy Spirit; for it is necessary that every believer should be delivered from pollution, as well as from the curse and condemnation of the law. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, the sanctification of the truth, the believer becomes fitted for the courts of heaven; for [Yahushua] works within us, and His righteousness is upon us. Without this no soul will be entitled to heaven. We would not enjoy heaven unless qualified for its holy atmosphere by the influence of the Spirit and the righteousness of [Yahushua]. In order to be candidates for heaven we must meet the requirement of the law: “Thou shalt love [Yahuwah thy Eloah] with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27). We can do this only as we grasp by faith the righteousness of [Yahushua]. By beholding [Yahushua] we receive a living, expanding principle in the heart, and the Holy Spirit carries on the work, and the believer advances from grace to grace, from strength to strength, from character to character. He conforms to the image of [Yahushua], until in spiritual growth he attains unto the measure of the full stature in [the Anointed, Yahushua]. Thus [Yahushua] makes an end of the curse of sin, and sets the believing soul free from its action and effect.’ Ye Shall Receive Power, page 65.

3. What did Yahushua say was the qualification for eternal life?

“That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For Yahuwah so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life...He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of Yahuwah abideth on him.” John 3:15-16, 36.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” John 5:24.

Answer: Believe on the Master, Yahushua, the Anointed.

NOTE: Many accept Yahushua as an article of belief, but they have no saving faith in Him as their sacrifice and Saviour. Do you believe that Yahushua, as your substitute, pays the debt of your transgression? Not, however, that you may continue in sin, but that you may be saved from your sins; that you, through the merits of His righteousness, may be re-instated to the favour of Yahuwah.

The Unsaved Die Twice

4. What types of belief does the Bible warn against? Why will some come to believe things which are not true?

“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Yahuwah shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11.

Answer: True faith trusts wholly in Yahushua for salvation, leading to perfect conformity to the law of Yahuwah. “He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him” 1 John 2:4. It is unsafe to trust our feelings or impressions; these are unreliable guides. Yahuwah’s law is the only correct standard of holiness. It is by this law that character is to be judged.

5. When Yahushua was asked what was necessary for man to do to have eternal life, how did He reply?

“And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love Yahuwah thy Eloah with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.” Luke 10:25-28.

Answer: The world’s Redeemer has plainly specified the conditions of eternal life. Both the conditions and the promise are positive. Yahushua must be the center. We must love Him and when we love Him we will love our neighbour as ourselves.

“If an inquirer after salvation were to ask, 'What shall I do to inherit eternal life?' the modern teachers of sanctification would answer, 'Only believe that [Yahushua] saves you.' But when [Yahushua] was asked this question, He said, 'What is written in the law? How readest thou?' And when the questioner replied, 'Thou shalt love [Yahuwah thy Eloah] with all thy heart . . . and thy neighbour as thyself,' [Yahushua] said, 'Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live' (Luke 10:25-29). True sanctification will be evidenced by a conscientious regard for all the commandments of [Yahuwah], by a careful improvement of every talent, by a circumspect conversation, by revealing in every act the meekness of [Yahushua].” Faith and Works, pages 52, 53.

6. How did Yahushua answer this same question on another occasion?

“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, Yahuwah: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:16-17.

NOTE: “The sanctification now gaining prominence in the religious world carries with it a spirit of self-exaltation and a disregard for the law of [Yahuwah] that marks it as foreign to the religion of the Bible. Its advocates teach that sanctification is an instantaneous work, by which, through faith alone, they attain to perfect holiness. “Only believe,” say they, “and the blessing is yours.” No further effort on the part of the receiver is supposed to be required. At the same time they deny the authority of the law of [Yahuwah], urging that they are released from obligation to keep the commandments. But is it possible for men to be holy, in accord with the will and character of [Yahuwah], without coming into harmony with the principles which are an expression of His nature and will, and which show what is well pleasing to Him? The desire for an easy religion that requires no striving, no self-denial, no divorce from the follies of the world has made the doctrine of faith, and faith only, a popular doctrine; but what saith the word of [Yahuwah]? Says the apostle James: “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? . . . Wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” The Great Controversy, pages 471-472.

7. What promise did Yahushua give to those who are willing to sacrifice in this life for His sake?

“And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” Matthew 19:29.

8. What condition did Yahushua speak of for those who wish to receive eternal life? What did He mean by this?

“Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day... It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:54, 63.

NOTE: "To eat the flesh and drink the blood of [Yahushua] is to receive Him as a personal Saviour, believing that He forgives our sins and that we are complete in Him. It is by beholding His love, by dwelling upon it, by drinking it in, that we are to become partakers of His nature. What food is to the body, [Yahushua] must be to the soul. Food cannot benefit us unless we eat it, unless it becomes a part of our being. So [Yahushua] is of no value to us if we do not know Him as a personal Saviour. A theoretical knowledge will do us no good. We must feed upon Him, receive Him into the heart, so that His life becomes our life. His love, His grace, must be assimilated." The Desire of Ages, page 389. 

9. How did Peter show his understanding of Yahushua’s words?

“Then Simon Peter answered him, Master, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that the Anointed, the Son of the living Eloah.” John 6:68-69.

NOTE: "Spiritual life must be sustained by communion with [Yahushua] through His Word. The mind must dwell upon it; the heart must be filled with it. The Word of [Yahuwah] laid up in the heart and sacredly cherished and obeyed, through the power of the grace of [Yahushua], can make man right, and keep him right; but every human influence, every earthly invention, is powerless to give strength and wisdom to man. It cannot restrain passion, or correct deformity of character. Unless the truth of [Yahuwah] controls the heart, the conscience will be warped. But in these worldly societies the mind is turned away from the Word of [Yahuwah]. Men are not led to make it the study and the guide of life."Selected Messages, Book 2, page 124.

10. How did Yahushua explain the Christian life and its reward?

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:27-28.

NOTE: "[Yahushua] is the Good Shepherd. He leads the way, calling upon His sheep to follow him. Those who hear and obey His voice will follow His example in all things. Becoming acquainted with Him, they will grow daily more and more like Him. They will be meek and lowly, free from jealousy and envy. Do we hear [Yahushua’s] voice? Are we following Him? It is of great importance that we know whether we are following the True Shepherd. In order to know this, we must search His Word; for it is His voice speaking to us. “What saith the Scriptures?” is to be our watchword at every step. In [Yahuwah’s] word we may find an answer to every question. From it light shines upon our pathway, revealing the Good Shepherd as He goes before us." Youth Instructor, October 3, 1901 par. 3

11. What has Yahushua promised to those who follow Him?

“And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.” 1 John 2:25. 

12. What characteristics will be found in those who receive eternal life?

“To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life.” Romans 2:7. Compare Revelation 14:12.

NOTE: "Patient continuance in well-doing will lead you through this world of sorrow and strife to glory and honour and eternal life. Have [Yahuwah] within and [Yahuwah] overhead and you have nothing to fear. The Bible is a light to those who are in darkness. In the prospect of a blissful immortality held out to those who endure unto the end, you will find an elevating power, a strength which you need to resist evil. Be steadfast in the hour of trial, and you will gain at last a crown which will never fade away."This Day With God, page 194.

13. What battle must all those engage in who will receive eternal life?

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12.
