Shout Out-No More Fear of Death

 So many people even many of God’s people live in fear of death.

If you read your Bible and know what God has prepared for those who love Him, you should never fear death again. Keep heaven clearly in your minds.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10  However, as it is written: What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love him— these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

For believers, death is a transition, a type of graduation where we leave this sin filled wicked world and enter into an amazing eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We love Jesus more than we love this life.

Philippians 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

In the Bible the Apostle Paul compared death to a bee who had lost its stinger and asked, O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?

 The grave could not hold Jesus and it will not hold Christians. We have victory over death through our Lord and Savior Jesus.

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Why should we fear death when we understand our future is with Christ?  To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. The power of death has been conquered. Amen and Hallelujah!

Jesus was born to die for us. He became flesh so He could die so we could have forgiveness of sins and eternal life with Him. Jesus took Satan’s weapon of sin against us, away. Jesus took it out of Satan’s hands. No devil or demon can snatch God’s chosen out of His hand.

Hebrews 2:14, 15  Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil, and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

When Jesus died for us He not only cleansed us from sin by His blood but He gave believers eternal life with Him. Satan can’t change that. In this sense he is powerless. So we are free from the fear of death. God has justified us.

God has broken Satan’s teeth, sin has lost its power. Sweet Jesus has risen from the grave and death has lost its sting. We are one breath away from heaven and the presence of Jesus.

Come on Jesus and take us with You.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
