Title: Your victory over death is in Jesus Christ.
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:
he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?” John 11:25-26 KJV.
Point of Reflection:
Hanging over each and every one of us is the reality that one day
our body will fail and we will depart this body.
After that comes judgement and either eternal life or eternal damnation.
The word of God declares in Hebrews 9: 27:
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”
Acts 17:31 tells us the judge will be Jesus Christ
and that He will overlook ignorance and judge in righteousness.
Justice, righteousness and holiness are the foundation of His throne
and will be the hallmarks of His judgement decisions.
He is qualified to judge by His suffering, death and resurrection.
Every authority, power and dominion has been put under His feet.
He has been exalted to the highest level in the universe.
He was given the Key of David, keys over life and death.
He is qualified to give us eternal life because He is the resurrection and the life.
He tasted death on behalf of every person, conquered death
and is now qualified to impart eternal life to all who believe in Him.
That is why in Jesus Christ we can now declare that
death is swallowed up in victory. (1 Corinthians 15: 54) and
"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:55, 57 KJV.
By the resurrection Jesus Christ is able to set you completely free from the fear of death.
The enemy satan has used the fear of death as a weapon to put many people in bondage all their lives.
Many remain petrified and haunted by the prospect of dying.
That is why His word says:
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood,
he also himself likewise took part of the same;
that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”Hebrews 2:14-15 KJV.
When one believes in Jesus Christ as Lord, He deposits His Holy Spirit in us,
which will regenerate our old spirit and then merge with our own spirit.
We are then born again and have the capacity to see and taste eternal life,
be given a foretaste of eternity. ( See John 3:3-6; Ephesians 1:13-14).
The Holy Spirit is given to us as a deposit,
foretaste and down payment for eternity.
It bears witness within us that we are children of God.
Romans 8: 16 tells us: "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God."
Glory to God!
In Jesus Christ you have victory over death because
He is the resurrection and the life and
death has no more power over Him and therefore over you.
His Holy Spirit given to you as down payment gives you a foretaste of eternity.
The Holy Spirit also vacuum packs your spirit,
and seals it and stamps it ready for eternity. Glory to God!
You therefore need not have fear over death, because you have victory over it in Jesus Christ in you.
Take some time to thank Almighty God for victory over death in Jesus Christ and the gift of eternal life.
When you are ready-
Prayer of thanksgiving:
Heavenly Father I thank you that Jesus Christ tasted and conquered death on behalf of every person.
Today I acknowledge the risen Jesus Christ as Lord of my life.
I set myself apart and consecrate myself for you.
I declare that I was bought by the blood of Jesus Christ and satan and his demons
have no power over me and no claim over my life.
I reject, denounce and renounce every influence, every working and every deception of the enemy
satan and his demons in the name of Jesus Christ.
I ask you Father in the name of Jesus Christ to fill and empower me by your Holy Spirit
I receive, accept and embrace the abundant outpouring of your Spirit upon my life in the name of Jesus Christ.
Thank you that Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life.
Thank you that by your Holy Spirit I am sealed for eternal life.
Thank you that the Holy Spirit is the deposit and down payment for my redemption to eternal life.
Thank you that the Holy Spirit gives me a fore-taste of eternity.
Thank you that in Jesus Christ I have victory over death and assurance for eternal life.
In Jesus Christ's name I pray. Amen.
Wishing you a joyous and prosperous Year 2021, the year in which Almighty God is calling you to become a chosen of Almighty God. God is calling us all- but we need to choose God,
it is you who chooses Almighty God to partner with Him in His agenda on the Earth. (Matthew 22:14). Choose to be a person seeking His will and His agenda on the earth, to be a person who is focused on performing His purpose.
As you do you join Moses, David the son of Jesse, the Apostles and other brethren who have gone before us. As you do Almighty God calls you a person after His own heart.(Acts 13:22).
As you seek the heart of Almighty God, He promises 1) to show you His mercies that are new every morning, 2) He promises to show you His faithfulness, 3) He promises to give you help from the sanctuary,
4) He promises to anoint you with His Holy Spirit, 5) He promises to answer you when you call upon Him, 6) He promises to increase your capacity to influence people (your horn), 7) He promises to prosper you,
8) He promises to give you victory over the enemy satan, 9) He promises to make a covenant with you (to be coupled and bonded to you as you fulfil His agenda on the Earth),
10) He promises never to fail you or leave you and more (Psalms 89:1-37).
You need to continue to seek Him in his word and as you do, His good hand will manifest upon your life. (Hosea 4:6; Ezra 7:6, 10) He will give you His burden to pray for salvation of souls across Planet Earth,
to be a faithful witness for Jesus Christ as well as being a faithful steward of what He has entrusted to you- the time, the mysteries of God and substance.
You also need to continue to seek His face in prayer as He promises to reveal to you hidden things of Almighty God. (Jeremiah 33:3)
As you do the Almighty God who foreknew you before you entered your mother's womb, who predestined you (that is wrote a script about your life),who is now calling you,
will now justify you through the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ on the cross and show you His glory and His goodness in Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:29-30).
We love you as we invite you to choose to be a person after the heart of Almighty God who will accomplish His will and His purpose on the Earth.
We are praying for you.
Apostle Dr Max and Joyce Matonhodze.
