THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH MEN ARE HELD IN LIFE LONG BONDAGE [1746a]

So here we have the bondage and slavery to sin and the reason for it, that by fearing death we are isolated from the God who is love. But now JESUS has come and died FOR US, has taken our place in death to release us from it and the FEAR of it. “He who believes in me will never die, HE WILL never SEE death.”

Jesus exposed the reality of life and death and provided a “new and living way” through His body, to release us from death and provide us with life. If we accept the death He provided for us to escape the outcome of our sin and judgement upon ourselves for it, if we accept His bearing of it for us in such a way as to cause us to turn from our past and to accept a new future of life in Him; then death is behind us and life is before us and IN us, because we are in Him and He in us.

Jesus took our death upon Himself in His own body so that we might be free of it and free to serve life and the love that He is. Life and love are now ours unless we deny it by denying Him and His nullifying of our old death and the acquisition of new life for us. One died for all, therefore all died. There is now no reason to fear death as long as we leave it behind us and grow in the life that He is and freely gives to us. “Live a life of LOVE”. “He has abolished death”.
