"The Fear of Death"


“The Fear of Death”


Because God’s Children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood.  For only as a human being could He die, and only by dying could He break the power of the devil, who had the power of death.  Only in this way could He set free ALL who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.     Hebrews 2:14-15


The fear of death is something that most people possess, especially if they are UNBELIEVERS.  Because the devil has them as a SLAVES to SIN, and their GUILTY conscience brings about the knowledge of where they will spend their ETERNITY, this brings about the FEAR of DYING.


Therefore, the Son of God, had to become FLESH and BLOOD, just as mankind is FLESH and BLOOD, in order to be able to bring REDEMPTION to mankind.  Jesus came to this earth to DIE.  And by DYING, He was able to CONQUER DEATH and the POWER of the devil, and his POWER of DEATH.  The Son of God, was able to do this by His DEATH and in His RESURRECTION, He CONQUERED the DEVIL, and his POWER of DEATH.  And He made the devil POWERLESS over the TRULY SAVED.  And the devil’s use of the POWER of DEATH is subject to GOD’S WILL.


In 1 Corinthians 15:54, we are told that when our DYING BODIES have been transformed into bodies that will NEVER die, the Scripture in Isaiah 25:8 will be fulfilled: “DEATH is swallowed up in VICTORY.  O DEATH, where is your VICTORY?  O DEATH, where is your STING?”  So, the WORK of Jesus Christ has brought to an END the FEAR of DEATH and its SPIRITUAL BONDAGE, for those who have come to the CROSS of CALVARY for their SALVATION.  Have you done this?  Or are you being held as a SLAVE to SIN and the FEAR of DYING?


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are a SLAVE to SIN, and you will have that FEAR of DYING.  But if you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful life-style, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  He will FORGIVE you, and you will have VICTORY over SIN and DEATH through our LORD JESUS CHRIST.  But you MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and receive HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, as your ETERNAL HOME.  And ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s WAITING and COMING SOON!!!
