1 Corinthians 15:55-57 (NLT) O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 1:10 (AMP) But now [that extraordinary purpose and grace] has been fully disclosed and realized by us through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus who [through His incarnation and earthly ministry] abolished death [making it null and void] and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
The body of Christ was like a seed in the ground but because of the power of His blood that was poured out, it was like miracle grow in the soil and he was only buried for 3 days! Until the Almighty could no longer withhold the blessings of the Resurrected Son! Death could NOT hold Him! The devil has been defeated! The grave has been defeated! Why so downcast, oh my soul!? What on earth is worth my joy? What on earth is worth my victory in Jesus? Nothing, dear friend, nothing!!!
You have the Spirit of the Living God on the inside of you, you have all power and authority in Jesus, do not let the devil convince you of anything different. He is defeated and you are a great threat to Satan! Put on your full armor of God and GO - fulfill the great commission and do not let man get in the way of what God has for your life! Be bold, be brave, be courageous! Don't allow your neighbor to go to hell because of your insecurities. Take charge of what is rightfully yours and speak the word of God over your life! Now is the time, here is the place and God is with you! Pray unceasingly through all things, keep the name of Jesus lifted high above all other names, spread the good news of Jesus Christ as though someone's life depended upon it - because it most certainly does!
Our time here is but a vapor, a fog, here one minute and gone the next. Continue to pursue your passion for Christ as it is food for your soul. Renew your mind daily with the scriptures and speak Truth over your life and your enemies! Use your words to encourage, equip and empower those around you. You have a voice that can speak freedom to those in bondage, it's time to get up off that mat and GO!
Matthew 28:19-20 (TPT) "Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”
Romans 12:2 (TPT) Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
John 5:8-9 (TPT) Then Jesus said to him, “Stand up! Pick up your sleeping mat and you will walk!” Immediately he stood up—he was healed! So he rolled up his mat and walked again!
