60. And behold, I am alive for ages of ages, signifies that He is life eternal. Now as, "Who am living" signifies that He alone is life, and from Him alone life is (as above, n. 58), it follows that "Behold I am alive for ages of ages" signifies that He alone is life to eternity, and consequently that eternal life is from Him alone; for eternal life is in Him, and consequently from Him. "Ages of ages" signifies eternity. That eternal life is from the Lord alone is plain from the following passages:
Jesus said, Whosoever believeth in Me shall not perish, but shall have eternal life (John 3:16).
Everyone that believeth in the Son hath eternal life, but he who believeth not in the Son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him (John 3:36; 6:40, 47-48).
Verily, I say unto you, he that believeth in Me hath eternal life (John 6:47).
I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in Me, though he die, shall live; and whosoever believeth in Me, shall not die to eternity (John 11:25-26; and in other places).
Hence, then, the Lord is called, "He that liveth for ages of ages"; as also in the following passages: Rev. 4:9-10; 5:14; 10:6; Dan. 4:34.
