Runta

RUNTA
My brother had 5 cats, one of which produced a litter of kittens. All the babies were doing fine save one which he explained was the runt of the litter, hence the name “Runta”. He explained that mama had abandoned her because she was so weak and tiny.

This story doesn’t have an entirely happy ending but a few precious moments.

I took Runta to my apartment, kept her in a little bed that I fashioned and placed under the nice warm lamp that I was using to do my college homework. I fed her as best I could with an eyedropper and petted her very gently with one finger.

Runta purred!!!

I wish that were the end of the story but the poor little thing died a few days later.

I can still hear and feel her purring.

What is left to kill us?

IF INDEED IT IS TRUE WHAT JESUS DID, THAT…..
1. sin,
2. satan,
3. the law and
4. death are all destroyed and done away with. What is left to kill us !?

Why do we feel we still have to die? Some interpretations are contradicting the truth that is written. The undeniable truth is that….

🔻He took sins away.
#1 is done ➖“And ye know that he was manifested to take away sins; and in him is no sin.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭ASV‬ ~ also 1Jn. 8

🔻He destroyed the devil.
#2 is done ➖“Since the children, as he calls them, are people of flesh and blood, Jesus himself became like them and shared their human nature. He did this so that through his death he might destroy the Devil, who has the power over death,”.
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭GNB‬‬

🔻He fulfilled the law.
#3 is done ➖““Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to #fulfill the law.
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬.

🔻He made the law obsolete.
“In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first #obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭8:13‬ ‭NKJV‬.

🔻Then He abolished the law
“having #abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, #the_law_of_commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬.

🔻At last He abolish death
#4 is done ➖“but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,”
‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NKJV‬

DEATH was swallowed up in victory of the Jesus resurrection from the dead. “The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.”
‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭15:55-56‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

ll Tim.1-10 says, ‘Christ has ( past tense) abolished death and #brought_life_and_immortality_to_LIGHT_THROUGH_THE_GOSPEL. Meaning we have it, but are not aware that we do have it. So He has enlightened us to this fact.

💥 #ABOLISH BY DEFINITION MEANS…
To do away with; put an end to; annul.
To destroy completely. Hmmm 🤔

We died once with Christ, never to die again. Not even a physical death; if we can believe.

Jan Crouch 1938-5/31/16 went to be with the Lord.

We loved her passion for the Lord. '
We loved her passion for the Lord. ‘
So sad. Precious Jan Crouch has gone to join her husband … and Jesus. 5/31/16
AN ADDENDUM: Recently I was reminded of an amazing healing that I had many years ago of grief over the death of my 18 year old sister. My mother told me that we must remember that God is Life. I clung to those words and believed them with all my heart. I have enjoyed an indescribable spiritual bliss for many, many years. April is as present and alive to me now as she ever was! So, Jan Crouch, I thank you for reminding me and now I will choose to see you and all your wonderful achievements as God sees you, vibrant, full of Life and Love. Amen.
