Authority Over Death
Authority over Death

By Wayne McDonald

Revelation 1:18 And the ever-living one [I am living in the eternity of eternities]. I died, but I am alive forever more; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead). Jesus has defeated the grave. Our greatest enemy has been conquered.

Since our greatest enemy has been put under our feet all of these other obstacles we face in life are nothing. You are more than a conquer through Christ that strengths you.

One time I was listening to a scientist who tried to explain away what she thought happened when people start to die. This scientist was interviewing people that had died for a few hours.

Some of the people that died said they met family members that died year’s befor. This scientist said when these people began to die their brain started to die and they began to have flashed backs of loved ones.

Good argument, but not true! For some one that does not know God and has not felt His touch that is a great excuse for living your life for your self and doubting that there is any other life beyond the grave.

But for those that have had a one on one encounter with Jesus we know the truth. We know that the grave and death have been defeated. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

If you have never given your life to Jesus today is your day. Maybe you have just known religion and have never experienced a relationship with the king of kings.

Pray with me today!Lord Jesus I give you my life, I will live for you with all of my heart, I believe that you rose from the dead and defeated the grave, fill my life with you presence.
