Checkmate! O Death, Your Sting Has Been Nipped In the Bud.

Our Final Victory

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory.

O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?

The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:51-58 NKJV)

ENOUGH SAID. DON’T TALK ABOUT IT… BE ABOUT IT.

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14 NKJV)

God bless each and every heart that loves the Lord and strives daily to be like him. I encourage you to put on your Amor of God ( Ephesians 6:10-18 ) daily and to go out knowing that the victory has already been won!

Checkmate.

  1. Hi Terra a good thought provoking Truth, God tells us we will be conformed into the image of Jesus Romans 8:28-30 and that when we put our flesh to death Colossians 3:4-6 and are Born again we will be perfected in Love 1John 4:16-17 and no longer sin, 1 John 3:8 which Paul confirms when He tells us he achieved this by keeping the Faith which is shown in action and that he had won the crown of righteousness. 2 Timothy 4:7-8

    Christian Love and blessing from both of us – Anne
