Who Can Be Against Us?
And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. “Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this (Revelation 1:18 – 1:19 NKJV)
We do not need to fear because Jesus Christ is superior to death, hell and the grave. He has the key of hades and of death and He has authority over death and the world of the dead. He is Lord over all things. All power belongs to Him and He has delivered us from the fear of death.
Nothing can happen without God’s consent and if God be for us, who can be against us? As long as you are a believer, every pain you suffer will always work out for your own good. That is the word of God. If God allows us to have our own way all the time, we will unknowingly harm ourselves but God’s will, will always prevail over our own will. If there is no test, trial, temptation and judgement we will not grow, be refined or made purer and closer to the image of Christ.
Blessed be the Lord our God who has delivered us from death and the fear of death. Spiritual death has no hold over us and any pain we suffer here is just a temporary pain! Be brave, be bold, be strong and firmly make up your mind that to die is gain and to live is Christ. Stop being afraid to go to heaven but pray to fulfill your destiny before you go.
I was very young when the Lord impressed that Scripture upon my heart. I know from deep within my heart that to die is gain and to live is Christ. It helped me to loose the fear of death and I simply do not react to things the way most people would. Even when I am in the deepest darkest pit, I rejoice and delight in Christ. I celebrate the Lord at all times and I rejoice in my salvation. I also rejoice because of heaven – my eternal home. Glory to God, we are blessed indeed!
Beloved, reject fear because Jesus has the keys of hades and death and He loves us beyond our comprehension or imagination. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
