I am come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 NKJV
A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow! TPT
the state of one who is possessed of vitality or is animate
every living soul
of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic “logos” and to Christ in whom the “logos” put on human nature
life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed, in the portion even in this world of those who put their trust in Christ, but after the resurrection to be consummated by new accessions (among them a more perfect body), and to last for ever.
We don’t have to die to experience the power of the resurrection in us.
If you look at the faith walkers in Hebrews 11, they received gifts that were way ahead of time.
Because God loves walking on water.
He doesn’t destroy the scientific laws of nature. He just teaches man to rise up and live above them.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Reckon yourselves dead to the past. You are already alive in Christ. If you can believe, you don’t have to experience death.
- God doesn’t have to talk about death so much if He wanted us to experience it. He wants us to get out of the ‘death is inevitable’ mode.
- You can’t sin in heaven. You can’t die in heaven. After experiencing physical death, you don’t have to reckon yourselves dead in heaven. Everything is relevant NOW!
