How To Reach Immortality
by David J. Stewart | July 2019
Philippians 3:20-21, “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
There has been much news in recent years, especially since the late theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking (1942-2018) issued a warning about developing technology, about the scientific pursuit of immortality. For example: Here is one such article...
Can We Become Immortal? The Quest to Live Forever Through Technology
Several promising projects involving robotics, genetics, cryonics, 3D printing and more are in the pipeline seeking to make the idea of living forever plausible.

Humans have always been looking for ways of not having to die. It is an instinct as strong as survival to extend our lifespan and eliminate diseases from the face of humanity.
As unrealistic and incomprehensible as the idea might seem, researchers have forever been focusing their efforts on cheating death and leading invincible lives. There have been countless experiments, studies, and investigations into this theory that have prompted scientists to design ingenious ways of not just extending our lives, but eliminating the concept of death altogether.

Scientists Could One Day Make Humans Immortal
By Larry Getlen | January 6, 2018
On Jan. 12, 1967, James Bedford, a psychology professor at Glendale College in California who had just died of cancer, took his first step toward coming back to life. On that day, the professor became the first person ever frozen in cryonic suspension, embedded in liquid nitrogen at minus-321 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bedford was neither the first, nor the last, to attempt the impossible — beating death at its own game, according to Michael Shermer’s book “Heavens on Earth: The Scientific Search for the Afterlife, Immortality, and Utopia” (Henry Holt), out Jan. 9.
With scientific advancements exploding at an exponential pace, some believe the Grim Reaper could soon be out of business.
Here are three ways scientists are striving for immortality that are getting so close to success that they would amaze even Bedford — if he ever wakes up.

James Bedford's frozen body 52 years later is stored at Alcor, the leading company in cryonics. It is interesting that Mr. Bedford's dead body was frozen on January 12, 1967, less than two months before I was born on March 5, 1967. It is tragic to me that these people are placing their trust in man's abilities. They are trusting in the arm of man for immortality, instead of our great Savior!!! Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” Throughout the inspired King James Bible we are promised immortality through faith in Jesus Christ!
Certainly, in according with God's sovereign plan mankind has made many amazing discoveries, and it is said that the whole of man's knowledge doubles every eight years. Mankind is exponentially learning and advancing. Yet amidst all of our wonderful achievements as a race, humanity today cannot even keep society from falling apart. We can put a man on Mars, but we cannot eliminate homelessness across the nation! We can send a space telescope a million miles away to take pictures, but we cannot even love our neighbour as our self!
Today, Alcor has both humans and animals stored upside down in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of 320 below zero Fahrenheit. Five bodies are stored per canister...
As of November 30, 2018, Alcor had 1,678 members, including 290 associate members and 164 who have died and whose corpses have been subject to cryonic processes. 96 bodies had only their head preserved. Alcor also applies its cryonic process to the bodies of pets. As of February 13, 2009, there were 33 animal bodies preserved.
It is tragic that these people are trusting in the arm of man for immortality. Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” Throughout the inspired King James Bible we are promised immortality through faith in Jesus Christ!
I chose our text passage of Scripture for a good reason, because we are promised a NEW BODY by God. Philippians 3:20-21, “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” Only God can give immortality, and best of all—we have the solemn promises of God Himself recorded within the pages of God's Word. God promises TO SAVE THEM THAT BELIEVE. 1st Corinthians 1:21, “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” The $64,000 question is: DO YOU BELIEVE ON THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD? I DO!
This Temporary World Cannot Offer Immortality
Sadly, I just read about a 35 year old young woman in Michigan, a mother of two and married, with a $135,000 a year career as a meteorologist at Fox News, who committed suicide in 2018, a couple months after undergoing Laser Eye Surgery. She said that the surgery ruined her eyes, causing painful stinging and dryness which required her to use eye-drops every 5 minutes night and day. She couldn't take it anymore! Doctors cannot be trusted, because they always downplay your chances of things going wrong! It goes back to the love of money being the root of all evil! Listen, someone always gets the bullet in a fool's game of Russian Roulette! Someone always loses a chair in a child's game of Musical Chairs! My heart goes out to the family of the suffering woman, but sadly, it reveals this spoiled generation, who cannot handle tragedy, loss and suffering. She selfishly didn't think about her two daughters or her husband. She went and tragically hung herself! I suffer in chronic agonizing neck pain 24/7 (since 2004) and have had thoughts of suicide enter my mind at times, I admit. But thanks be to God, I have a purpose for living as a born-again Christian—SOULWINNING! God needs me to warn lost sinners about Hell, and let them know the 'GOOD NEWS' of Jesus Christ, so they can avoid Hell and go to Heaven forever!
We are living in a characterless generation! Young people lack common sense nowadays. ...
WHAT HAS DESTROYED AMERICA! (MP3, Pastor Jack Hyles; Always make children to do right!)
What's Wrong With The Home? | What's Going On In My Nation? (MP3's, Brother Lester Roloff)
I don't know if the woman who commit suicide was a Christian or not. I don't want to mention her name, because the family has suffered enough. It makes me grieved. But I think it is sad that this generation cannot handle hardships. Recently a 12 year old girl commit suicide live on Facebook. What is happening to this generation? I'll tell you, they have deliberately been deprived of the transforming power of the Word of God since 1963. I know that I am going to Heaven when it's over (1st Corinthians 1:21), and I know the Lord is preparing a place for me in Heaven (John 14:1-3), and He is going to give me a new body fashioned like unto His glorified body (Philippians 3:21).
I am listening to a wonderful MP3 sermon right now while I'm writing this article, by Pastor Jack Hyles called “For You.” If you have received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior dear friend, then He is preparing FOR YOU a place all of your own in Heaven, which you will love. ...
John 14:1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
God knows exactly what you like—your preferences and dislikes, your tastes and desires, your wishes and favorites—please don't miss out! I fully agree with Dr. Hyles, who says in the sermon: “You're a stupid idiot if you never trust Him as Savior!” You cannot go to Heaven without trusting the blessed Savior! Oh friend, I don't know about the aforementioned woman who commit suicide, but I do know that I am saved, and I do know that you can be saved too, right now, by simple childlike faith in the Savior!
You can have you body (or just your head for less money) frozen and stored by Alcor—in hopes that some distant time in the future, as human technology advances, scientists will be able to reunite your brain with a new body, and you'll have reached immortality! My friend, that is as impossible as it is preposterous! I would infinitely rather place my trust in the only begotten Son of God, Who died on the cross for my sins, so that I could have immortality. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
God Offers Immortality Right Now For Free!
You can reach immortality right now for free! John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” The Holy Bible doesn't say that you will someday have everlasting life, but RIGHT NOW! The moment that you decide to place your complete trust in Jesus Christ, because of what He did on the cross FOR YOU to pay for your sins, you have everlasting life! You will never see the second death! When you die the physical death, there will be no break in conscience. You will see at least two angels, as did Lazarus in Luke 16:22, “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried.” I do not believe that the Lord would mislead us to believe we will see angels, and then it is not so! The Lord said what He meant, and meant what He said. John 14b, “...if it were not so, I would have told you...”
It has always irritated me how people will flock to buy a book, by anyone who claims to have had some Near Death Experience (NDE), saying they went to Hell or Heaven and saw things. Countless such authors have become millionaires overnight. Personally, I think they are a bunch of liars! Hebrews 1:1-2 says God speaks to us in these last days only through His Son—the Word of God—“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.”
All God wants you to is to realize you are a guilty sinner, and guilty sinners are lost and condemned to Hell. You must see your need for the Savior! You have broken God's commandments in the Holy Bible. You have done bad things. Also, you have not always done the good things that you should have done. These are sins, whether they be sins of commission or sins of omission. But there is GOOD NEWS, God the Father sent His dear only begotten Son into the world to die in your place on the cross, paying your debt of sin and mine. Christ was buried and three days later He miraculously resurrected from the dead, and is alive forevermore! If that is your only hope for forgiveness and sins and immortality, then you are God's child and have eternal life! John 3:15, “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” So if you truly want immortality friend, don't call Alcor, call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
