He Defeated The Power of Death
There has been a lot of loss and pain lately to my relatives and people I know. Many times the question is asked why? Why does healing and restoration come to one and not another? Why does death seem to take those we cherish the most?
It is especially hard when death comes out of time, too young or in a tragic way. Sometimes there are natural answers, sometimes there are really no answers. For those of us that believe healing and miracles are for today, and even have seen them or experienced them, these questions can be even harder to deal with.
Some religious faith folk will give the text book answer about being in faith, standing in faith, say they didn't have enough faith. Well, they are just foolish, really immature, and kind of hard hearted.
I know at least a few people who would want to lay hands on a person if they said something like that to them. I have seen mighty men of God that are full of faith, lose children and loved ones to untimely deaths as well as those who through foolish living and actions lose their lives too soon.
The bottom line is that the enemy is cruel and his hatred for mankind is raging. Death that comes too soon sucks, and death itself, has had mankind in bondage, since The Fall when death came to man(Death was already here, before the fall, before man, it just came to man through the fall).
This is The Good News. This is The Gospel. You no longer have to fear death. You know longer have to be bound by it, for Jesus defeated Death,Hell and The Grave. His victory was so complete that The scriptures say:
"Oh death where is thy victory oh grave where is thy sting",
and in another place:
"... that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil; and might deliver those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives (Hebrews 2:14-15).
You see The Lord hates pain and death as much as you do and He paid a very high price to give us victory over it. Even when these bodies die, we can live on for eternity in Glory and Peace, if we have accepted Gods sacrifice for sin, Jesus.
Do you KNOW where you will go if you were to die today? If not, you can. The WORD says that in the last days all who call upon the NAME OF THE LORD(Jesus) shall be saved.
Jesus said: That NO MAN can come unto The Father, but through ME.
Just something to think about.
