"Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ Jesus!"

“Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ Jesus!”

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him, because we know that Christ, having been raised from the dead, will not die again. Death no longer rules over Him. For in light of the fact that He died to sin once for all; but in light of the fact that He lives, He lives to God. So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:8-11

The Apostle Paul’s letter to the TRUE BELIEVERS in Rome, is applicable to ALL TRUE BELIEVERS of today. We, who are TRUE BELIEVERS of the Lord Jesus Christ, should FOLLOW the guidelines, which the Apostle has laid out before us. In these particular verses of Scripture, Paul tells us that when we become a TRUE BELIEVER, we have DIED with Christ, and if we have DIED with Christ then we will also LIVE with Him.

Because Jesus Christ did NOT stay dead in the grave, as all humans do, when they die a physical death. He was RESURRECTED or RAISED from the DEAD and the GRAVE. And DEATH NO LONGER has RULE over Him. And, through His OBEDIENCE to God, by being the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for ALL MANKIND, in that He laid down His life, DIED, for EVERYBODY. He who knew NO sin, became sin, by taking on ALL the sins of mankind, past, present, and future. And was RESURRECTED from the DEAD, which exhibited the fact that DEATH and the GRAVE has NO RULE over Him.

So, if we have DIED with Christ, then we will also LIVE with Him. But in order to LIVE with Him, we MUST DIE to OUR sins, ALL of our sins. Which means that we do not CONTINUE in our old, sinful lifestyle, but we TURN AWAY FROM it, and TURN TO GOD, then we become ALIVE to God through the REDEMPTIVE WORK of Christ Jesus. And we will inherit ALL the GLORIES of an ETERNAL HOME in Heaven. Is this your DESTINY?

You MUST DIE to your SINS, in order to be ALIVE in God, and to receive HEAVEN as your ETERNAL HOME, and to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS. In order to do that, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is now ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and become DEAD to your sins, but ALIVE to God, and receive HEAVEN as your ETERNAL HOME. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
