THE CONFIRMED DESTINY OF ALL THE EARTH
Part 6: The Saints Rejoice In the Victory Over Death
Editors Note: Beloved we come with a grieved heart as we continue to record one of our parallel discussions “Notes on the Black Family.” Leaning on Job we will not forsake God. Nor will we opt for the wrath of God over man’s mis-placed Devil sent wrath. Many names will come forth disclosing the alliance with Satan and a pact with evil and wrong-doing. We bear witness that the United States Constitution is the Hallmark of Democracy. Also, as God is our witness and judge the First Amendment guaranteeing Religious Freedoms and Free Speech is clearly First, as it is so rightly noted. However, the State apparatus is sound and just, however Satan has recruited many willing dead soldiers and some have been tricked to follow things that defy and bring shame to Democracy. Meanwhile again leaning on Job, Paul and the great Prophets, we know that Almighty God granted us Religious Freedom and Free Speech from the womb.
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
Beloved just how is there victory in death? What does this mean can the lost also have a victory in death? Basically a victory is the ability to overcome an enemy. Is Satan our enemy? Victory further resides in the mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds.
“There was once a great man who did not boast, but was noted as once a great soldier. However, as he matured and prospered in the Faith he became an even greater Warrior. There will never be any rest for the righteous of God on this earth. However the Warriors will survive all odds and rejoice in the victory over death.”
The world today is swallowed up in Black on Black discrimination, dissension, hate, economic racism, confusion and a willful disdain for things not of God, even by many in the Church. But how can the righteous defeat the world and Satan riding a Black and White horse called the beast?
Once again, more than once, we thank Almighty God our Father for the Divine Spirit that rests rules and abides in us. Rejoice in victory brethren the inspired Word as revealed in the scripture shows us the way.
I Corinthians 15: 54: “ So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immorality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, death is swallowed up in victory.”
The Apostle Paul writing about the resurrection of the body notes that there is a victory in the resurrection. But, those that are raised in Christ will no longer have weak and sick bodies that die and decay. The saints will never die they will be full of glory; strength will be upon them as they become more than human and spiritual.
The body will be changed into an incorruptible and immortal form, because the body is the only part of man that is corruptible and mortal. This principal applies to both the dead and living in Christ when He comes.
Therefore, when this change comes, as noted by Paul we see the fulfillment of the prophecy noted by the prophet Isaiah. Thus death is swallowed up in victory. Is death then something totally different for those in Christ and those in the world?
Isaiah 25: 8: “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.”
At this place the prophet Isaiah reflects on the unbelief of the Jews regarding the rejection of Christ as the divine Son of God. Meanwhile, a general state of sin and unbelief is evident throughout the world.
In the Old Testament the resurrection of all the dead and the immortality of the righteous is predicted. However, we could not witness this great truth until Jesus actually preformed this in Jerusalem. Therefore when one has faith in the resurrection those that have served the Lord will be able to face death with a feeling of victory.
