Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 He who loves his life shall lose it; and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Few will be saved because of their love of life."]

 26 If any man wants to serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there my servant will also be.3 If any man serves me, my Father will honor him. [While alive on earth, his true servants can be translated into the kingdom of heaven; they still remain walking on the earth, but their consciousness and sight are in heaven in the presence of Jesus and the Father. Jesus prayed: I do not pray that you should take them out of the world, but that you should protect them from the evil. John 17:15. Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me. John 17:24. From the Word of the Lord within: "You can live in heaven and still walk the earth. I will come again to the elect; I will be a crown to lead and guide them." As George Fox ministered on the earth, he was translated to paradise; and then he lived in paradise.]
