There is something very unique about the statement that seems to have been missed. At first glance, one might be inclined to assume the edict is for a select set of words, spoken within a 3.33 period of what we know as time/years, to a select group of people. But, knowing what we know of scripts and words, it cannot be assumed a singular set of words is responsible for the ability to "never see death".
The edict seems to suggest not a form of command by obedience of following only, nor a collective of words in a book(s), but rather keeping as one would keep eggs in a carton, precious stones in a safe, etc. Can it be possible to consider that when a human reaches the point where words (information-light | Creator in motion) fill them to brim, at the moment of overflow, they literally passover death? Is this what the resurrection human image is to you?
"If a man keeps my word, he will never see death"
-Writings of John 8.51
Is this really possible in your thinking?
If yes, has anyone apart from the firstborn done it?
If no, why haven't they?
In this world we see two impossibilities..
Those of Life being as though they are dead..
The dead being as though they are alive..
But Truth says this..
The dead cannot Live...
neither the Living cannot die...
The dead will never understand that they need not die because they are death itself.
You need not explain to the Living that he need not die because he already understood with only a word...
So we see by the word of Truth all goes to their own place....
As it is said.....As a man thinketh in His heart so is he...That is To Death or to Life.
Yes, this I know.
My dialogue is based on seeing what others view as this.
From my understanding, "no death" is the primary of all the sciences (equation/sensation). In fact it is the prime of all "mysticism", "medicine", "technology", "social order", etc. according to the purpose and "reason" of humanism, or better said, how humanity is trying to fulfill/achieve this prime using those methods.
"No Death for You?!". Would it mean no death to the memory?
"Well, considering the memory (brain) is apart of the collective human entity, then yes, memory would also be included."
Stuck in the memory of one life time.
Stuck in the memory of many life times.
