" Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise.."
( Isaiah 26:19a, KJV )
" And your covenant with death shall be disannulled..."
( Isaiah 28:18a, KJV )
" I will ransom them from them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death..." ( Hosea 13:14, KJV )
" Jesus said unto her, I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
( John 11:25-26, NKJV )
" For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death." ( Romans 8:2, NKJV )
But has now being revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."
( 2 Timothy 1:10, NKJV )
" ... 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 )
These scriptures are truths that reveals God's mind as regards the issue of death; the one that's making many live in fear day after day.
Please, whosoever you are, wherever you are, don't be afraid of death - a defeated foe! The Lord Jesus has dealt with death, and everyone who believes in Him ( that is, Jesus ) has authority over death. So cheer up! Spend time to meditate on these scriptures until they are established on your inside, and have dominated your mind. Your being in Christ gives you authority over death, so you can handle death whenever you are faced with anything called death. How? Your mouth! ( See Proverbs 18:21 ). The name of Jesus released from the mouth of anyone in Christ Jesus handles death, cheaply.
Cheer up, you can handle death. This is the reality - the truth of the gospel of the Lord Jesus.
