Divine revelation has taught me this: Each day we get older, but ageing is not a dread. The more days I live, the more alive I'm becoming in Christ.
The old dogma that you die a little every day and that we're all dying just very slowly is not a reality.
Reality is this: Life in Christ coming more and more into perspective daily. There is nothing "slowly dying" about the abundant life in Christ Jesus the One who saves our souls.
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10)
A full life. Full of what you may question? Full of rich spiritual blessings of peace and joy, and triumphant victory over your enemies.
"A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of." (John 10:10)
This life Jesus promises us is better than anything we can dream! How amazing! Eternal life and abundant living are not mere wishes but reality, because of what Jesus has purchased for us. We have a real and eternal life certainly secured by our Mighty Messiah!
Stop living paralysed in fear! Jesus has already pulled you out of the snare of your fears! Put the doubt down at the foot of the Cross and start speaking those promises of God aloud.
"Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires." (2 Peter 1:4)
The promise we've inherited in Jesus has guaranteed us an eternal home in heaven - that is divine nature and truly divine reality! Because of this, we are not true citizens of the world, therefore the empty and fleeting ways of this world cannot harm us children of God.
We are under His protection, and rather than "die a little more each day we live" we are nearing the day of resurrecting into our spiritual bodies and permanently residing by His side.
We'll worship and be freed from destruction. This is the divine reality of becoming more alive each day! Be blessed dear friends!
