Born Again to Never Die Again!
Jesus said to the Saducees whose belief was that there is no resurrection of the dead…..Luke 20:35-36
“But those who are considered worthy to gain that other world and future age and to attain to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage;
For they cannot die again, but they are angel-like and equal to angels. And being sons of and sharers in tthe resurrection, they are sons of God”
And so I thought, if the people on earth in this present age never got married and therefore never gave birth, it would be right to infer that the entire human population would be extinct 120 years from this year 2020. That is to say the human population will be extinct by year 2140. Wow!! Whilst Covid 19 has sadly taken thousands in its wake,…… cutting out marriage betwen a man and a woman in the above scenario playing out, would also take away the entire human population!! The importance of marriage!!
Therefore it cannot be that marriage intended (amongst other thing)s to bring about the production of human beings is a mistake and that alternative relationships will achieve the same thing. Pause and think about this my dear friend.
Anyway back to the topic at hand – Born again, never to die again. The gift of salvation through Jesus Christ promises that eternity which every human being in the face of the planet wants. Never to die!!. It’s why the whole world is frantically trying to get rid of the corona virus Covid 19 plague. It will run out of steam because it has a time limit and is just one of many signs of the return of the Lord. However it doesn’t have to take our liives. It was designed as a sign for people to realise that Christ is indeed coming back. Right now there is salvation from the plague but I’m not talking about medicines or vaccines. No, I’m tallkiing about soul salvatiion. Yes Covid 19 can kill the body but it can’t kill the soul. Understand however that if you are reading this blog it implies that your soul is in your body right now. So your soul lives in your body.
Then this means your soul can claim on behalf of your body the promise in 3 John 2…’that your body may keep well even as I know your soul may keep well’.
Covid 19 has no jurisdiction over that verse. No authority over your soul and your body can benefit from the prayer in tthat verse for it is the Word of God. It is powerful!!. But how can I claim it you ask?
It’s simple read Romans 10:9 – 11. Acknowledge your sins and then ask God to forgive you by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus death on the cross through shedding of His blood in place of your sins, then say this aloud:
Because I acknowledge and confess with my lips that Jesus is Lord and in my heart I believe (adhere to, trust in and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. For with my heart I believe (adhere to, trust in and rely on Christ) and so I am justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God) and with my mouth I confess (declare openly and speak out freely my faith and confirm my salvation. The scripture says to me that when I believe in Him by adhering to, relying on and trusting in Him, I willl never be put to shame or be disapppointed.
Congratulations! Happy Birthday into eternity! Welcome to the kingdom of those who are Born again, NEVER to Die again!!
