2 Corinthians 5:4-5 (KJV) Something Greater than Mortal

2 Corinthians 5:4-5 (KJV)
For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
Little wonder Paul was so confident of eternal life. He said that God wrought or made us for that very thing.
Man was not created for mortality but that his mortality would be swallowed up in life. We come into this world mortal beings but it is not intended that we remain in that state. Mortality may be swallowed up, devoured, overwhelmed to the point of disappearance, through faith in Christ. Those, who are originally mortal, never cease to exist. Rather they become something greater – life.
Paul’s assurance of this truth is the earnest of the Spirit.
  • It is not provable by any current scientific standard
  • It is difficult if not impossible to explain to the one without this earnest but
  • It is a certainty to all who genuinely possess it.
