Men/women were never created to die. The Bible says God made everything good and He said it was very good. Because of the sin of one man (Adam), sin entered the world and death also entered into the world through sin. This is the reason why men/women die.
Romans 5:12-15 “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned…, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.”
In the beginning, God created us to live forever. The Bible says death spread to all men/women because of one man. But the grace of God, through Jesus, overturned death and made man victorious over death. This means you can now live forever if you so desire. You can decide how you want to leave this earth. Like Enoch; you can just take-off as a parachute to heaven (Hebrew 11:5). You do not need to die and perish.
The Bible says it was not possible for Jesus to be killed. He defeated Satan in Hell and triumphed over death (Colossians 2:15).
Colossians 2:15 “And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
Jesus changed the course of mankind forever. He stopped the power of death over us. This is the reason why Jesus did and we can, and we can, raise the dead and bring them back to life. We have been granted powers beyond measure to lose and to bind on earth.
Father, I am a possessor of the Spirit of God’s tabernacle in my body. I am more than conquerors this month because Jesus has given me victory over death. Reposition me today and set me on course in Jesus name.
May you have a Merry Christmas 2017.
