“But the holy ones of the Most High will receive the kingdom and possess it forever, yes, forever and ever.” Daniel 7:18 HCSB
There seems to be a never-ending quest to stop the aging process and live forever. Men and women dye their hair. Some have plastic surgery to tighten sagging skin so as to look younger. Others exercise and eat a healthy diet in an attempt to stay young and live longer.
There is only one way to live forever and that is to invite Jesus Christ, the Son of God to be your personal Lord and Savior. The Bible is clear that everyone has sinned and rebelled against God and the result is death and separation from Him. Jesus came to earth, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross as a way of paying the penalty for all of the sins of the world. He was then buried and three days later came back to life. Through Jesus Christ, all can be forgiven and receive eternal life.
In Daniel’s vision he was told that the holy ones (believers in Jesus Christ) will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever. In John 14:2 Jesus promises His disciples that He is going to prepare a place in heaven for them and that He will come again and take them to be with Him. As believers in Jesus, we have that same promise. Someday we will possess the kingdom of God and we will live forever and ever.
Challenge: If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can pray and invite Him into your life. It is as simple as A-B-C. Admit you are a sinner. Believe Jesus is the Son of God and He died and rose from the dead. Confess Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. If you are already a believer, share with someone how he or she can live forever by believing in Jesus Christ.
