FEAR NOT DEATH!
When David’s time to die drew near, he commanded Solomon his son, saying, “I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong, and show yourself a man, and keep the charge of the LORD your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn,—I Kings 2:1
Then David slept with his fathers and was buried in the city of David. —I Kings 2:10
Death… is “the way of the whole earth.” For those who have called on the Name of the Lord, those following Jesus, we need not fear. Why? Death is our transition into Heaven to be with Jesus and all who love Him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_FmqI7QKck
“Now since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity, so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death, that is, the devil, and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death” (Hebrews 2:14-15). See, as followers of Jesus we are free from the power of death which Satan held over us because of our sin. Jesus has defeated sin’s power over us and Satan’s power over us. “And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again” (II Corinthians 5:15). Now, let us live for Him!
King David was about to die. Did he fear? How did he spend his last moments? He spent some of his last moments on this earth encouraging his son, Solomon, to be faithful to “the Lord your God” in order “that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn.” No, David did not fear death. He knew Whose he was and where he was going. He used his last moments to encourage his son.
Do you fear death? If you know Jesus and know Whose you are and where you are going there is no need to fear death. He has broken the power of sin and Satan in your life and in your death! You are His and will be with Him! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMsMiluCUUI
Do you fear death? If you do not know Jesus then sin, death and Satan still have power over you and your destiny is Hell. You should fear death and what is after. But call on the Name of the Lord today and then there will be no need to fear death. Please call on Jesus today!
Dear Father I am so grateful that I do not need to fear death. Thank You Jesus for freeing me from the power of sin and Satan. Now my I live the rest of my life according to Your desires in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. May it be so!
