DO YOU KNOW?
It’s impossible for you to be held by the pains of death, if you are saved, that is, born of God through faith in Christ Jesus and growing in the knowledge of the truth ( In Christ realities ).
There is no death and its symptoms in Christ Jesus. You are in the realm of life forever. All you have is life and immortality; death had been abolished forever; you have life and you have it more abundantly in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy:1.10 “but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, [who] has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel “
In fact, you have been baptized into life, by being baptized into Christ by faith ( not water baptism ooo). Yes, you have believed onto eternal life. Christ is your life; He is your exemption and freedom from death forever.
Acts 2:24 “whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. “
Romans:6.9 ” knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. “
Can you see that ?
Christ being raised up from the dead is a prove that the pains of death had been destroyed, dissolved and demolished forever. He could not be held; seized; overpower by death and its pangs/pains, just because it is impossible!!!
He destroyed them in His body through death on the cross, and He gain victory and dominance over them in His resurrection. An everlasting victory over death all for you.
In the same way it was impossible for Christ Jesus to be held by death and its pangs/pains, you also cannot be held by these because you were raised with Him to be — Him, in Him and with Him forever.
Ephesians 2:6 ” and raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in the heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus, “
Colossians 2:12″ buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with [Him] through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. “
Colossians 3:1″ If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. “
What are the pains of death?
They are negative occurrences that came into existence due to the disobedience ( sin )of the first man Adam.
1 John 3:8 ” He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. “
Is your mind filled with the thoughts of death in that situation? Are you afraid of death? Now use the word and the name of Jesus Christ which is your authority over these thoughts, and you shall have rest of mind.
