John 6:40

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 40 And this is the will of him who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in [depends on, trusts, and obeys] him, may have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day."2 [To believe in him is to believe what he speaks and shows you from within your heart, and your belief must be evidenced by obedience to his commands. Persistent waiting, listening, hearing, believing, and obeying, results in him purifying you from sin by grace so that you can see God in the face of Christ Jesus — which occurs simultaneously with seeing Jesus bring your salvation.]

Jude 1:21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 Keeping yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring eternal life.6 [You are to experience and see Jesus to bring eternal life, just as Jesus brings your salvation. Neither salvation or eternal life occurs without first destruction of the sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial, through persistent and patient waiting on God in humble silence, listening, watching, and obeying Him, which obedience is evidence of belief. But if we hope for what we do not yet see, then we wait for it with patience. Rom 8:25. Eternal life and salvation come to those who heed and obey the commands of God as they persistently and patiently wait on Him, Heb 5:9, 9:28.]

Matthew 19:16,21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 And, behold, someone came and said to him, "Good Master, what good thing must I do to have eternal life?"

 21 Then Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor,2 and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me." [Notice! Jesus has told us that perfection is necessary to enter into the eternal life of God; and if we would be perfect to have eternal life, (which is the life of God), we must follow the moral commandments, (included in the law on every man's heart), give to the poor, and then follow Him. We follow Him by exposing ourselves to hear his commands and then obey them; we deny our will and submit to His commands — that is the cross all men must bear to the death of self, to perfection, to attain salvation, to attain eternal life.]

John 3:15

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 15 So that whoever believes in [depends on, trusts, obeys] him may have eternal life [of God]. [ Even the demons believe that Jesus is the Son of the most High God, and they tremble. It is not enough to believe Jesus is the Son of God, you must expose yourself to hear His spoken commands and persistently believe Him, evidenced by your obedience. You can have eternal life if you patiently and persistently wait on God in humble silence, believe Jesus' spoken commands to you that you hear, and then obey what He commands, so that you eventually enter union with Him. From the Word of the Lord within: "What is the evidence of your belief? — operational faith." We must believe enough to seek to listen for, hear, and obey God's voice — and the evidence of our faith is to produce the fruit of the spirit, thus to show ourselves to be true followers of Christ; and the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness [or meekness or humility], and self-control. The branches that do not produce fruit are cast into the fire to be burned. John 15:6, Mat 7:19.]

Hebrews 5:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 And being made perfect, he [Jesus] became the author and source of eternal salvation to all those who heed and obey him;1 [Salvation is to be delivered (freed) from all sin, even the desires, through persistent obedience to the Spirit that mortifies the selfish human spirit on the inward cross of self-denial. You must persistently and patiently wait for Him in silence to hear his commands, as you listen and watch; then heed and obey Him.]

John 5:24

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, 'He who hears my word, and believes in [depends on, trusts, obeys] him who sent me, has eternal life, and shall not come into condemnation; but has passed [past tense] over from death to life.'3 [The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart [so you may hear and obey it]; that is, the word of faith, which we preach. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Christ speaking to you from within your heart). Rom 10:8,17. To have passed from death to life is to have heard many words spoken from Christ within your heart, which words you hear are engrafted in your heart, James 1:21; and which words you hear him speak to you are life-giving, John 6:63; which life that is given is Jesus, who is the life; thereby forming Christ in you, Gal 4:19; until Christ is fully formed and actually raised in you to be your true Lord in thought, word, and deed. To pass from death to life is as Paul said, "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me." Gal 2:20

This is the life that Adam lost in his fall in the garden, when he was cut off from the tree of life; men then became dead to the life of God. And when you pass from death to life, you enter paradise to once again eat from the tree of life, being translated into the Kingdom of Heaven while on earth to live in union with Christ and the Father. All this is to be experienced, not presumed in high notions.]
