IF INDEED IT IS TRUE WHAT JESUS DID, THAT…..
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.
