    Welcome to Zoe Training. Barely about a year after I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, I heard Him tell me, 'Prepare the ones I have called'. About September 2014, I heard the voice of the Lord, Jesus Christ during a meeting, where I was preaching, in which He told me that He is coming back soon but that His church was not ready. Again in about a year later, (September 2015), I heard a more clearer, louder and distinct voice that shook the very core of my being and He told me, "I am coming back sooner than you think". 

     

    Zoe ministries is born out of that vision and desire of Jesus, to see His church grow and mature into His full stature. To live as manifested sons. Jesus said " unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.". Jesus was that grain that died so we could be like Him.

     

    The word of God tells us  "He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle" (Ps 144:1).

     

    Zoe is an end time ministry focussing on training and equipping Christians from all backgrounds to be disciples of the Lord Jesus through the word and power of God. We achieve this through teams that gather in homes and other private and public places.

Eternal Life

Level 1 Lesson 1

 

ETERNAL LIFE

 

 

One of the most familiar passages of Scripture is John 3:16. It seems like everybody knows that verse from a young age, yet I believe it has really been misunderstood and misapplied. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

 

 

Traditionally, this scripture has been used to teach that Jesus came and died for  our sins so that we wouldn’t perish. As true as this is, this verse is saying that the real purpose of Jesus coming to this earth and dying for us was so that we could have everlasting life. It just so happened that our sins were a barrier that stood between us and this everlasting life.

 

It is true that Jesus did die for our sins, and it is true that if we believe on Jesus, we will not perish, but there is much more to the Gospel than that. The real message of the Gospel is that God wants to give you everlasting life. Now let me explain that. 

 


 

The night before His crucifixion, Jesus was praying, and He said this, “This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ” (John 17:3)

 

This says that everlasting life is knowing the Father, the only true God, and knowing Jesus Christ, whom He has sent. That’s what everlasting life is. Many people think that everlasting life is living forever. Well, every person lives forever. It’s a misconception to think that when a person dies they cease to exist. The spirit and the soul go back to God. The body decays in the grave. The truth is, every person who has ever lived on the face of the earth will continue to live in spirit form. So to say that eternal life is living forever is not the whole truth—everybody lives forever. This verse makes it very clear that eternal life is not given to everyone.

 

Some people would say, “Eternal life is living forever in heaven versus living forever in hell.” But eternal life is just what Jesus said in John 17:3—to know God and Jesus Christ. It’s more than an intellectual knowledge. This word “know” is used throughout Scripture to describe the most intimate, personal relationship that you can have.

 

The real purpose of salvation is not living forever in heaven, as great as that will be. The real purpose of salvation is to have intimacy—a personal relationship with the Lord God. There are multitudes of people who have cried out to God for the forgiveness of their sins but have never had intimacy with God as a goal.

 

By not explaining the real purpose of salvation, we are doing a disservice to the Gospel. When we present salvation as something that deals with just spiritual things that 1will only benefit us in the future, in eternity, we are not helping people. There are some people who are living in such a literal hell right now on earth. Many are depressed, living in poverty, dealing with strife, rejection, hurt, and failed marriages. People are just trying to survive day to day. They are just trying to keep their heads above water. By making salvation something that deals only with the future, many people put off that decision because they are too busy just trying to survive today.

 

The truth is that Jesus not only came to affect our eternal destinies so that we can live forever in heaven in blessing instead of the punishment and curse of hell, but Jesus also came to deliver us from this present evil world (Gal. 1:4). Jesus came to give you intimacy and a personal relationship with God the Father today.

 

Jesus came to bring you back into close, personal relationship with Him. Jesus loves you. Jesus wants to know you personally. Jesus wants to give you a quality of life that is greater than  anything you could obtain through any other source.

 

Jesus put it this way in John 10:10: “The thief [speaking of Satan] cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more  abundantly” (brackets mine). God wants to give you eternal life. God wants to give you abundant life, and I believe that you need that today—that you want that. Christ died not only to forgive your sins, but to bring you close to him. If you don’t know the Lord, you need to know Him for that purpose. If you’ve already been born again, you need to go beyond just getting your sins forgiven and enter into everlasting life with the Father.
