For God so loved the world that He GAVE His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ so that those who believe in Jesus will not perish but have eternal life according to John 3:16 in the Bible. God Made it very clear that “those who have The Son of God Jesus Christ have eternal life and those that do not receive the Son of God have not eternal life according to 1 John 5:12. If you have the Son of God, you have life, if you do not have the Son, you are dead spiritually. So there are two kinds of people: those alive in Christ spiritually that die in Christ and those without Christ who die unsaved without hope of eternal life. “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life and he that believes not the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God abides on him as stated in John 3:36. That means that the person without the Son is dead so this means spiritual death. God is saying to you today that you if you are not a Christian you can come to life by accepting Jesus Christ as your Saviour. This portion of Scripture is telling all people not to have security and confidence in their own strength but in God through Christ alone because God directly links all people to the JEWISH JESUS. The subject of prophecy reveals the nation Israel has serious implications for the whole world. David, God’s servant and his Seed descendant Jesus shall be king over them and they all shall have one shepherd and walk in God’s judgements and observe God’s Statutes and do them according to Ezekiel 37:24. That One Shepherd is the Lord Jesus Christ born in the line of David.
Matthew I and Luke 1-2 recorded Jesus came in the line of David as the Shepherd Who Will rule as God raised up David to reign over Israel. In the Millennium and eternal kingdom to be ushered in immediately following the Millennium Christ Will reign in the Millennium in the eternal kingdom. The Lord Jesus Christ Will Reign and serve down here on this earth. And the heathen shall know that the LORD sanctified Israel when God’s Sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore as written in Ezekiel 37:28. This is going to come to pass when God’s Sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.There will be a millennial temple and an eternal temple down here on the earth. In Revelation where it speaks of there not being a temple, it is referring to the New Jerusalem which is where the church will be so not upon earth for a season. On return after rapture, the eternal home of God’s children of Israel will be upon earth and God’s temple will be in their midst. Although Israel is the subject of Ezekiel especially in chapters 37-39 this verses apply to all believer’s personal lives. The world today is a death valley full of walking dead people in trespasses and sins. Without a Godly Spiritual life human life is an old corpse metaphorically speaking. God Will Make Israel one nation in the land Upon the mountains of Israel and One King Jesus Christ shall be King to them all and they shall be no more 2 nations, neither shall they be divided into 2 kingdoms any more in Ezekiel 37:22. God will make them one nation again after persecutions and dividing Israel.
This is why God’s words says those who have the Son Jesus Christ have life. The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life. God made a new agreement with Jerusalem as stated in Ezekiel 16:59-63. ‘This is what the *LORD your King says, I will do to you what you deserve. Some people hate the agreement God Made so refuse to obey God. Verse 60 says God Remembers His Agreement Made with Israel and all elect chosen believers. That agreement will never end so eventually people will come to their senses and remember God’s agreement in verse 62. So you will know that I am the *LORD who in verse 63 will forgive all the things done in error. Then will not remember the past because God will do a new thing and they shall know it. So will not open mouth again in shame as the *LORD God your King says.’ In Verses 59-63, the *Israelites made an agreement with God so promised to obey agreement in Exodus 24:7. If they did well God will show His kindness to them but if they did not obey God punishes them. As they promised to obey God but did not so God punished them as in the agreement. God would not neglect to perform His promises in the agreement but make a new one with His people. This new agreement will last for all time because God forgives people for all the evil things done. As result those who accept and receive Christ will know the LORD God Almighty and live eternally according to Jeremiah 31:31-34; and Hebrews 8:8-13. At that time, the people in Judah will remember what they had done so will be ashamed of their past. They will accept their sisters Sodom and Samaria as daughters rather than as sisters to Jerusalem. Some people are furious with God for demanding salvation only through Jesus Christ they consider as mere human mortal or prophet rather than focus on God Only. Others however, believe Christ is the Authorised Deity Lord God sent by the LORD GOD Almighty to save mankind. Whatever mankind feels or thinks about Christ Jesus as God’s Only Way for Christians believers, God Made His Decision so Will not change. God is being forced like a loving Father to discipline and correct rebellious people but His Patience is running out. When God time of compassionate grace runs out His wrath will destroy billions including whole nations. God will restore Israel to a right relationship with God to be fully accomplished when Jesus Christ the Prince of peace is ruling on earth at the beginning of the millennium. So ensure you call upon the Son of God Jesus Christ to be saved eternally in Jesus Name.
