Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall
not all sleep, but we shall all be changed
(1 Corinthians 15:51).
Some people think death is from God; they
think God created life and created death. But it’s not true. When they read such things as,
“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and
create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Isaiah 45:7),
they get carried away by the words of the prophet, who
spoke symbolically. When you want to understand the
truth, you go over to the New Testament.
Hebrews 2:14 says, “Forasmuch then as the
children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also
himself likewise took part of the same; that through
death he might destroy him that had the power of
death, that is, the devil. ”
The devil had the power of
death! And in 1 Corinthians 15:26, the Bible says,
last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
an enemy. So, it’s only those who don’t understand the
Word that say, “We’ll all die one day.”
Our theme verse says, “Behold, I shew you a
mystery; We shall not all sleep ….” The underlined
portion shows that everybody isn’t going to die. This is
a mystery to the world; it’s difficult for some people to
understand. Therefore, they’re quick to quote Hebrews
9:27 which reads, “And as it is appointed unto men
once to die, but after this the judgment.” But God didn’t
make this a promise. The next verse says, “So Christ
Was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto
them that look for him shall he appear the second time
without sin unto salvation” (Hebrews 9:28).
In essence, it’s telling us that because it was
appointed unto man to die, and afterwards, face
judgement, Jesus Christ died once, for every man.
So, man doesn’t have to die again and again. There’s no
need for more sacrifices for sins.
Now that you’re born again, you have everlasting
life; you’ve been brought from humanity to eternity, which means you’ve become
indestructible, imperishable, not subject to failure, not
subject to death! This should be your consciousness, a
consciousness of life, not death. Glory to God!
I have the life of God in me, for as He is, so am
I in this world! I’ve been brought from humanity to
eternity, thus making me superhuman. I’m alive, and
I’m incorruptible, indestructible, imperishable; death
has no power over me! Glory to God!
