He Alone Has Immortality

|Spiry Tee

"Who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen."
I Timothy 6:16 NKJV.

Immortality means being exempt from death or simply, unending existence. There are numerous studies currently underway in the scientific world about how to achieve immortality in human beings.  While that's good in my opinion, there are many problems.

Whether it is (in their terms) biological immortality, digital immortality, or cryonics,  it is doomed to fail simply because it is being authored and executed by "fallen" humans who themselves are subject to death. No mortal being, by harnessing "fallen" intellectual prowess can achieve immortality.

The Bible, which alone is the Word of Truth, declares that only God has immortality. He's not subject to death, disease, trauma or aging. He alone is the Ancient of Days. He has been, is and shall be. Our God is eternal.

And there's more good news: "God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in His son. He who has the Son has life, He who does not have the Son of God does not have life." (1 John 5:11-12). God has made available to us His life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Apostle Paul puts it succinctly that Christ "...has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel" (2Tim 1:10). Life and immortality is our inheritance in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

I have life and immortality in Jesus.
