*DAILY DEW 22ND/AUGUST/2021*
*ALL EYES ON CHRIST JESUS*
_Key Bible Text:_
*Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.* (Hebrews 12:2 (KJV))
Stephen in the new testament saw Jesus at the right hand of the Father
David in the old testament saw the same and said "The Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand..."
Peter and Paul raised the dead in the new testament
Elijah and Elisha raised the dead in the old testament.
Paul was caught up to the third heavens and heard things;
Moses and some elders saw (a likeness of) God and sat down and ate and drank in His presence.
Paul the most prolific writer in the new testament with great revelation on the new creation may have had problem with his eyesight
Moses the most prolific writer in the old testament with great revelation on the old creation had powerful eyesight at age 120 years
No one in the new testament is recorded to have lived beyond 120 years
Many in the Old Testament lived way beyond that
Paul devoted his life to the gospel and stayed unmarried, fought the good fight, finished his race and went to be with Jesus
Enoch married and walked with God and was translated to heaven directly from earth.
Every apostle in the new Testament died
Elijah in the Old Testament went up in a whirlwind to heaven
So don't confuse Eternal Life with other things, because none of the saints in the old testament had eternal life; even though God's Spirit was with them and on them. Don't get carried away by bombastic talks about immortality, portals, court sessions, bilocation, translocation and australopithecus africanus. Lol.
All these things are real, so earnestly desire the best gifts, but keep your eyes on the simple solid truths of the kingdom, on Christ Jesus, rejoice that your name is written in His book of life, walk in faith and love.
*Major on the major - faith, hope, and love. And all other things shall be added to you.*
