The Lord Jesus told us whoever lives and believes in Him will never die. Have you ever wonder about this statement? I have. Exactly what does the Lord mean? Does He mean spiritually? Does He mean physically. I believe He means both. Let me explain:
I will talk about the spiritual part, and after that the physical; because the physical depends on the spiritual.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25)
I have written lot recently about the rest of God. The rest of God is mentioned in the fourth chapter of the Book of Hebrews.
We might think of the rest of God as the will of God; or as the inner resurrection that Paul proclaimed, in the third chapter of the Book of Philippians, as his goal toward which he was striving.
Perhaps the initial step in entering the rest of God is the prayer of relinquishment:
"And If I should ask that you live the remainder of your days upon this earth in your present condition, in your present seeming shame, in your present failure, will you trust Me with your salvation? Will you allow Me to pick and choose the time of my deliverance, of my cleansing? Will you keep on fighting and will you walk and continue to press and transition through the laver into My Presence? Or will you remain at the foot of the mountain and tremble for the fire and the brimstone? The fire and the brimstone is My Heart's passion and My love for you. Do not recoil from the things that I have for you."
The above paragraph is from a prophecy by William Ott, given in Mount Zion Fellowship, 5/20/2012.
