Eternal or Eternity Life

This new life is nothing less than Eternal Life. (John 3:15-16,36; 6:40,51; 6:25-26; Romans 6:11,23; 8:2; 1 John 5:12,13)

This does not mean, as many suppose, that we now live forever after we die.

No: eternity life is nothing else than the very life of God, the life that He has had in Himself from eternity,

and that has been visibly revealed in Christ.

This life is now the portion of every child of God. (1 John 1:3; 3:1, 5:11)

Please read the scripture references without this futuristic view in mind and bring it into the present time it was spoken


According to Murray, the church does not realize that "God rules the world by the prayers of his saints, that prayer is the power by which Satan is conquered, that by prayer

the church on earth has disposal of the

powers of the heavenly world."

In the face of criticism, though, Murray insisted that the believer can expect to receive the fullness of the Spirit. As Murray put it, "I must be filled; it is absolutely necessary. I may be filled; God has made it blessedly possible. I would be filled; it is eminently desirable. I will be filled; it is so blessedly certain."

Andrew Murray lived in the 1800's so this is not something new
