DEATH ABOLISHED? REALLY?



DEATH ABOLISHED? REALLY?

Hey friends,

This is a precious week to those of us who claim Christ as Lord and Savior. Regardless of your opinion of who Christ is, the sentence below from 2nd Timothy should make you want to find out just what the bible claims about Him. It boggles the mind that some people argue about the bible without ever having studied what it REALLY says.

If you are on this ministry site, it is because we care about each other so, for me, would you check this out?

...the appearing of Jesus Christ our Savior who, [he says,] abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. {2 Tim 1:10b RSV}


Timothy was in prison and knew he would die soon. He had nothing to gain by saying this. "ABOLISHED DEATH"...What? People still die right? So what does this mean?

...that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong bondage. {Heb 2:14b-15 RSV}

Don't let the fear of death keep you in a mental prison.

T. S. Eliot put it best when he said,

"It is not what we call death that we fear, but what, beyond death is not death. That we fear, we fear."

Fear of the unknown? God has made Himself KNOWN through Jesus Christ. I am not afraid...I know HIM!!! "Kathy, how can you KNOW HIM?" you ask. He is on every page of scripture.

John 14:9
Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?



Yes...even Christians can fear death....but when we remember the cross...we have nothing to fear. It has been handled. Jesus said, " IT IS FINISHED!!!!"

I don't cherish the idea of the process of death of this body, but I am not afraid of eternity with God. What an adventure is ahead! I hope you accept your invitation to the party!

Got a few minutes? You know you are going to waste that much time on facebook or tv tonight...so....why not take a look at these few scriptures and see what you think.

"I don't have a bible", you say. So get on BibleGateway.com and look this up! No excuses...technology is so cool!

You know...it has been my experience that someone HONESTLY seeking truth will find it and someone HONESTLY looking to justify their own actions and excuses not to give up their comfortable version
of "truth"...Won't find it (truth). It's hard to find something you don't seek!!!

I love you, more importantly God loves you enough to want a relationship with you. The bible tells us the ONLY way to have salvation, heaven and eternity with Almighty God is through the acceptance of Jesus as your personal savior. If you are breathing right now...you have sinned. If you have sinned you have separated yourself from God. You need a savior.

No other way. Sorry....NO OTHER WAY! No other name under heaven by which you may be saved.
Acts 4:12
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."



I hope you seek the truth...you will find it!

Just Thinkin',

Kathy
