The LORD kills and He makes alive from the grave. So the LORD has power over death. He has demonstrated this several times in the Bible times and He is still doing that now. God’s original intention is for man to live abundantly on earth. He breathed into man. The breath given to man in the beginning is eternal. So, God desires that man should live forever if not for sin that man got himself into. “For the wages of sin is death and the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom 3:23). Since sin entered the world of man, death is enacted upon man. Upon this the love that God has for man has made Him sought a way out for man to live and to be restored into the original plan of life of longevity.
Only the LORD God can bring the dead to life. In 1 Kings 17:17-24, the only son of a Zarephate woman was grievously sick and he died. She thought it was her as a result of her sin. But Prophet Elijah took the son from her and stretched on him with pray that God should restore the life into him. God heard the prophet and the boy lived again. You will not die but live in Jesus name. Anything dead and dying in your life receive the life of God afresh to live in Jesus name. The women declared Elijah to be man of God. Why? Only God can restore life. When God’s prophet or servant cries for restoration of life, God always answers.
No amount of wealth and riches can redeem life to a man. During covid-19 era, many perish with their money despite they could pay for hospital at a very exorbitant price. “They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:” (Psalm 49:6,7). If money can buy life, only the millionaires and billionaires will be living today. You cannot bribe God with money for God to be given to you. You can connect to the Blood of Jesus Christ shed for mankind for exchange of His life for your life. When Jesus Christ gives you His life, you live above every circumstances of life (1 John 5:4). You have abundant life (John 10:10b). The life He gives you is life abundance to enjoy longevity on earth and to continue the rest in heaven at last. If you trust in riches and wealth for life, you will perish in hell and your wealth will amount to nothing. If you are seeking money at any cost at the expense of your life, you will soon perish in hell (1 Tim 6:6-10). When you seek the life of God with everything, He gives you life here on earth and in heaven (Matt 6:33).
Jesus Christ raised the dead. “Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.” (John 11:17). Jesus Christ got to the tomb of Lazarus and He found out that Lazarus had been dead for four days. Martha said to Jesus Christ that if he had being there her brother would not die but she believed whatever He asked the Father, He would get it. Jesus Christ replied that your brother would rise again. She responded that Lazarus would rise at the last resurrection. “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11:26-27). Eventually, the brother lived again. Hallelujah! Jesus Christ called Lazarus out of the grave and He commanded him to be loosed from grave clothes immediately. I command your Lazarus out of any grave yard to be loosed and be delivered to you in Jesus name. Lazarus means The Lord my Helper. Your glory and your help is called out now for the next level in Jesus name. Whatever hiding your goodness and prosperity is cursed and destroyed in Jesus name. I command you out to manifest the glory of the Lord ij Jesus name.
Jesus Christ defeated satan and his wiles and death on the third day. Death lost its grips and it was swallowed in victory when Jesus Christ resurrected on Easter day. Everything needed for you to live was delivered on the third day. What satan uses to kill was overcome and it was destroyed. The sting of death is sin. Grave could not hold Jesus Christ and He resurrected into new life. You also was dead with Jesus Christ at the cross and You are raised with new life of Jesus Christ at the third day (Gal 2:20). The Truth of life abundance conquered the lies of satan to destroyed man. You have life abundance in you. What satan uses to kill was destroyed. Satan’s mission to steal, to kill and to destroy could not go farther on the third day for those who responded to believe Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. It is written “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” (Psalm 118:17). Even if people are dying around you and in your family, you case is different. You will not die but live in Jesus name. The word of God said it and Jesus Christ lives in you and you will live in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is alive forever more. In 1 Corinthians 15:1-11, we account of several disciples who confirmed to see Jesus Christ after His resurrection. The four Gospels also confirmed an empty tomb (Matt 28:1-15; Luke 24:1-11; Mark 16:1-15; John 20:1-15).
The good news for you today is that Jesus Christ wants you to live abundantly. “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”(John 10:10b). “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” (1 John 5:11,12). The big question today is “Do you have the Son God in you?”. You must be born again by receiving Jesus Christ into your life.
The Lord God promises to satisfy you with long life (Psalm 91:16).
Obedience to the word of God add longevity to your life (Prov 3:1-2)
Many of our patriarch of faith live long on earth. All most all the Apostles were martyred at good old age. (Gen 15:15; 25:8; Job 42:17; )
