KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 2:1 ” Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying,”
The bible said “the days drew nigh that David should die….”. Death is a fact of life yet many of us don’t want to talk about it. The results of not studying the truth about death as God’s word has revealed, is fear and satanic manipulation.
The bible said it is appointed unto man once to die and after death judgement. (Hebrews 9:27). The bible also reveals that some of us who would remain at the Lord’s coming would not see death. This would happen at the appearing of the Lord to rapture the church. (1st Thessalonians 4:17) “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall ever be with the Lord”.
I wish that we all open our hearts and ears to these truths. There is a spirit called the spirit of death which is an agent of the devil and the bible calls it the last enemy. 1st Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy shall be destroyed which is death”.
When the Lord Jesus died and resurrected, he conquered death for everyone. He took the key or authority to call men out of this life from Satan and the spirit of death. The Lord said in Revelation 1:18 as follows “I am he that liveth and was dead and behold i am alive for evermore Amen and have the keys of hell and death”. The Lord Jesus is the one who has the authority to call anyone out of this life. It is illegal for Satan and the spirit of death to do so. Unfortunately, many don’t know and many more don’t believe in Jesus and so the spirit of death still takes hold over them and kills them. Most deaths are not the Lord who calls them but the prince of darkness. Note: If a child of God is killed by the devil, he would still go to heaven, but his assignment on this earth would have been cut short. In the book of Job, he lost his whole family, and he said, Job 1:21.”………..: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD”. Was it the Lord who took from Job? No! it was Satan
Hebrews 2:14 also reveals that our Lord Jesus has paralysed the devil and delivered us from the bondage and fear of death. He has destroyed the devil who had the power of death. Satan deceives men by putting the fear of all kinds of things and then murders them. According to John 8:44, Satan is a murderer and the father of lies.
If a man submits himself to God’s word, and walks in faith, and believes in the Lord’s victory over the spirit of death., this spirit, would not have power over him but would be called home by the Lord Jesus after he or she has finished his or her assignment.
I believe in the Lord Jesus victory over Satan and the spirit of death. Satan has no power over me for l am submitted to the Lord and His word. I fulfill my mission in Jesus name.
Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, 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;
John 8:44 ” Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
