As a Christian we know to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Once we repent and live for Christ, we are never the same. The spirit that now dwells within us is an eternal spirit and we will never see death! (Galatians 2:20) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Si n is the sting of death to man, and to continue in sin brings death to ones soul. Praise God we have the victory through Christ when we repent and live unto Him! (1 Corinthians 15:55-58).O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
The way we speak may seem unimportant to some, but to God our words hold life or death within them (Proverbs 18:20,21) A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
When John was in the Spirit on the Lords day it was Jesus that spoke to Him and verified He was dead and now is alive, this is such good news for all who live for the Lord! (Revelation 1:10,14-18). I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
