Even death has been swallowed up in victory; grave stones have been rolled away. The fear of death is no longer the beginning of wisdom. Death has been demystified – the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ demystified death. The power of resurrection is still producing results in practical terms. I love that song that says, ‘With comprehensive faith in the blood of Jesus, I can move mountains, I can even raise the dead, with comprehensive faith in the blood of Jesus, there is nothing impossible.’ We are underutilizing the power of his resurrection.
The resurrection power has an earthquake dimension. The power dimension of the resurrection is of earthquake dimension of the highest magnitude. As He arose, those who put their trust in Him will also arise, so death cannot have dominion over us. Make this declaration – death cannot have dominion over me. Through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary, I have dominion over death in Jesus name.
Christianity is a living faith; it is not a dead faith. It is not about religion. Religion is fallen man’s attempt to find a living God, while Christianity is a loving God’s attempt to find fallen man. So, Christianity is not religion, Christianity is relationship with God according to his purpose. God has a purpose. You discover it in Christ and you fulfill it in Christ. It is because Christianity is a living faith that no one can kill it. Several centuries of martyrdom could not consign Christianity to the grave, instead, the more the persecution, the more the Church grew.
Throughout history, it has been proved that persecution does not stop the Church from growing; rather, it aids the furtherance and spread of the Church. Hallelujah! What diminishes the Church is compromise and that compromise usually comes in the time of prosperity. God did not create us to run our lives independent of him, so, the spirit of ‘let us alone’ is the spirit of self-destruction. God wants us to be tuned to the frequency of heaven. Real ambassadors don’t break away from their home countries. The river that is disconnected from its source, it is only a matter of time before it dries up. Watch it when prosperity comes. Prosperity brought a lot of half baked people into the Church. May you never drink the wine of success that will make you miss heaven, in the mighty name of Jesus.
PRAY:- Dear Heavenly father I thank you for giving us your Son – Jesus Christ. I celebrate His finished work on the cross of calvary. I appropriate the victory of Jesus Christ as mine victory, and declare my comprehensive dominion over death. Father grant me the grace never to satisfy a carnal appetite that will robe me of my eternal inheritance in Christ. I proclaim I have a wonderful inheritance. I am blessed beyond curse. Amen.
