1. “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” (1 Pet. 1:2-3). “Lively hope” is everlasting life. Being “begotten again” has to do with being begotten to do everlasting life. The sanctification of the people by the Spirit is the process of begetting them unto obedience first, and then what follows is the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. The sprinkling of the blood here is not in reference to sin or confession of sins. There are some unrighteousness in us that may even be elusive to us; they are things that make it difficult for us to manifest righteousness.
2. (Dan. 9:24). Everlasting light is needed to see certain sins that are everlasting, which is also referred to as iniquity. Everlasting righteousness comes into the picture after the reconciliation of iniquity. The vision of God is that people become incorruptible, undefiled and unfading. Once such people have been sealed, the most holy will be anointed. The most holy constitutes those who have finished their profession, upon whom authority will be bestowed.
3. (1 Pet. 5:1-2). All glories have an amount of suffering. Apostle Peter was already experiencing suffering and had attained some dimension of glory; this is why he was admonishing the elders to endeavour to take care of the flock who desire to become the flock of God and attain everlasting life. All flesh shall see the glory of God (Isa. 40:5). In days to come, the glory of God will be so strong that those who do not like God or the economy of His life will be ashamed. God will send them a strong delusion to believe a lie (2 Thess. 2:10).
4. (Hag. 2:7-8). The season of everlasting life is the season of making men more glorious than they can desire. We are in the season of heaven and earth being shaken (Heb. 12:26). The teaching of incorruption and everlasting life characterizes the season of shaking the heavens. We cannot have glory in the house of God unless the heavens and earth are shaken. This means rebel holders of authority are the ones preventing men from changing/turning. And God is determined to change men; it will be a revival from heaven. This is why we have to race into the incorruptible because we will be the gold of the earth (Isa. 13:12). In that period, physical things will lose value and nature will speak; and this must start from the Church.
5. “Verily, verily I say unto you, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” (John 12:24). Jesus is the grain of wheat that needs to die to become many. Jesus said He is the living bread that came from heaven (John 6:51); but for Him to become the only true bread, he had to cross to Eternal Life. There is something about Eternal Life being not alone. The gate that gets one into Eternal Life is the gate of death. For a fruit to bring forth many fruits, it has to die.
6. (1 Cor. 15:32-34). According to Paul, it is evil not to believe the doctrine of resurrection; such a mindset corrupts our faith. There is a technology that God put in seeds; this is why a seed that is planted cannot remain in the same form. The seed that was planted is the tree that is standing with its fruits. When a flesh (with spirit) is sown, it will definitely be raised to life again. This is because there is a law that calls it to life; there is a power that calls the body into being.
7. During Jesus’ days on the earth, He ushered in a season of the operation of the power to raise a physical body. This is unlike the days of Adam and Moses, where they only escaped passing through death. Archangel Micheal did not raise the body of Moses from the dead, rather, he took it from earth to heaven. Also, chariots of fire took Elijah away and God had to take Enoch. None of their bodies was buried; they were intact and were raised. While on earth, as Jesus obeyed God, He was opening gates; that was how glory came down. He was also conditioning and preparing the earth to receive a peculiar kind of manifestation on earth. All of His prayer and obedience up till Gethsemane was so that His soul and body would not see corruption.
8. (John 10:18). Jesus had to lay down His life in order to be fruitful. It is possible for a man to get to the state where he receives this power. This is an everlasting dimension where power is given for one to be able to lay down his life and take it up again. Apostles like Paul and Peter got to this state, although not at the same pedigree as the Lord Jesus. The giving of everlasting life is to bless a man with authority and rights in life, such that death cannot take a man without his consent. However, our reasons for deciding to tarry on earth would determine whether we would be granted that power or not. A man must have overcome carnal and earthly desires in the flesh before the authority of life is given to him.
9. The Lord understands souls and what can break each person; this is because we are of different tribes in the spirit. You cannot write your death program, but the decision to submit to what has been measured unto you depends on you. Even if you are alive physically, you can lay down your life (Matt. 16:25). To Jesus, losing His life on the physical cross was to lose it again. This is because Jesus had lost His life before He went to the cross. The death of the cross was a higher death – an experience that raised our Lord unto Eternal Life. When a thing is not sown into death in order to be raised, it cannot be divided and so cannot become many. It is an eternal attribute to come into a state of being divided (become many).
10. At resurrection, Jesus was Christ, the Son of the living God, and also the Eternal God. When Jesus was raised again, He was given the authority to distribute Himself (Acts 2:36). What we were baptized into was Christ; He was divided for us all. When we come into an everlasting dimension, the same Person (of Jesus) will be shared in another dimension; and this also applies at the stage of Eternal Life. Jesus could not be given to us in every state without Him going through death.
11. Before Jesus' resurrection, He could only appear in one place at a time; but after resurrection, He appeared to 5000 men at once – this is called “omnipresence”. Jesus can manifest "through all, and in you all" (Eph. 4:6). The Father and the Holy Ghost can be distributed because They have an eternal nature. Presently, Jesus is omnipresent; He is not just a spirit but a quickening spirit. A quickening spirit behaves like the Father. Eternal Life is not something anyone can easily claim; there are things that inform having Eternal Life. The intricate weaving of eternal nature is beyond our natural minds.
12. What we are hearing is not just a teaching; it is a work going on in us. We are fast approaching Eternal Life; that world is calling us home, and the home is coming near to us (1 John 3:2). Hence, we should not take this season with levity. No one should belittle what God is doing within us. God is taking us up to a very high mountain, where He is raising us to a very high capacity and giving us power. This power is the commission into the gospel (Matt. 28:18-19).
