The powerless walking deads among us

Every follower of Yeshua the Messiah is called to walk in the power of His resurrection.

Those who have not surrender to the King of Kings, often deny the powers made available to them.
Those who have not surrendered to the King of Kings, often deny the powers of the resurrection. They do not understand that death is eternally defeated.

One of the classical errors among Christians, is to deny the powers of the resurrection. And its constant availability of all who have surrendered to His Lordship.

The power of the resurrection is eternal life. Death has no power over us. As Paul says: Death is a gain.  The victory is achieved. All powers in Heaven and Earth is in the hands of the Messiah. A victory never to be revocked.

Jesus the Messiah is crystal clear in His conversation with Martha,  who thought the power of the resurrection would be available only on the last day.

 John 11:23-27
 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”  Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.

Please pay attention. Eternal life has already started for all who believe in the Messiah. Eternal life was available from the day Yeshua gained His victory on the cross.  Without failure.

All who are under His Lordship, shall not die. We have already crossed over from death to life.  We are not like the walking dead’s around us, having no clue what the power of the resurrection is.  It fact, most of them totally denying that the power is available for all of us. Now. Today.

 John 5:24
 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life

The opposite of being eternally alive, is to be among the living dead.  Among those who still do not understand the victory Jesus gained for them on the cross.

Matthew 8:22
But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

To listen to confused souls who deny that eternal life is today, and who await the resurrection of the dead, is heartbreaking.  They are denying the Master who already has called them to be a light to the world.   Sometimes we face people whose head knowledge of the scriptures are solid, but they have no experience with the power of God. They feel the Kingdom is a matter of talk and reason. Please correct such souls, who most likely are religious people claiming to know “Christ”.

 1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

2 Timothy 3:5
having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people

If you are one of these religious people, please pay attention to these words of Jesus, spoken before He had died the atoning death on the cross.

“I am the resurrection and life”..!

Accept this without doubting. Become a man or woman of faith.

  1. The bible says, ABsent from the body is to be present with the L-rd…and the two hanging on either side of Yeshua at the cross ..the L-rd said to the one who said, remember me in YOUR Kingdom, and the L-rd said, Today you will be with me in Heaven…

    1. See but Jesus didn’t go to heaven that day. So he must have meant it another way. “Today you will be with me in heaven” was a promise. It takes faith to believe that Jesus will keep that promise.

      1 cor 15:19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.

      1. Dear Ed Jones.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Your “Jesus” is a confused copy-cat. When he says “today” it can mean “anytime”. Not to be trusted.

        Please go back fishing.

      2. Remember the garden of Eden when God said to Adam “In the day you eat of it you will surely die”. Did Adam die that very day?

      3. Dear Ed Jones.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        You do not understand much about spiritual matters. Adam died spirititully. The walking deads, are truly dead. Spiritually. Even a dead man can go out fishing.

  2. No, I think you’re missing the aspect of God’s absolute power. There is no guesswork with God. When God says “Today you are with me in heaven” , means you are assured it will come to pass in it’s due time. There are many parts of scripture that use this type of reasoning,

  3. Mortal death of the flesh is inevitable,spiritual death is a choice,JESUS died in human flesh and dwelt in the darkness for three days then ascended to his father,not us we have to wait until the final judgement,but to have a place in GODS kingdom we must spiritually be reborn on earth and declare JESUS as our saviour

  4. Yes Ed,GOD is the alpha and the omega,he is I AM the absolute and not one of us know better then the other even if we think we do ,

    1. Which are you saying Rommgirl, we are all infallible or not one of us knows anything? If we all knew everything equally why is there so much debate?

  5. Well my last comment on News that Matters. By “spiritual gifts” I do not think they mean the gift of nonsense. Have fun, goodbye.

  6. When you except Christ as Savior , HE puts HIS Holy Spirit in you and will lead you to truth and so that you can understand the word of G-d

  7. Hebrews 9
    27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,

    It is interesting that the account of Lazarus has been used as an example.

    Where is Lazarus today?

    1. It has always been assumed that Lazarus was merely “resuscitated” or “healed” in his mortal flesh–there are several accounts of individuals being raised from the dead in the New Testament and there is also the account of Elijah raising the son of the Widow of Zarapheth (in 1 Kings 17. Interestingly, by Jewish tradition, that son of the Widow of Zarapheth was none other than the prophet, Jonah). These are great miracles–extraordinary acts of God–but they are not resurrections (we are told that Jesus’ resurrection was the first resurrection–see 1 Corinthians 15:20). Since those who were raised are not with us today, it is assumed that they died a natural death eventually.

      There is some evidence that a person isn’t really “very dead” in the first hours/even days after they have been declared dead by a physician (a little creepy, isn’t it?). Death is a process and once it gets started, it is next to impossible to turn around, but there have been accounts of people drowning in icy cold sea water for several hours before being found and resuscitated and then they were just fine–especially children. But God is a healer and Jesus the Great Physician (in more ways than one). If He chooses to heal someone, He does.

      But resurrection is another matter. “Corruptible puts on incorruptible” (1 Corinthians 15:52-53) in resurrection. The resurrected body will never die.

      In that intermediate phase of being dead but not “very dead” a number of people have become convinced that they were facing hell, and, as a consequence, they came to faith, after they were resuscitated.

      Interesting question, Alistair. Thanks for raising it.

      1. Hi Job. Peace to you.

        You reply ‘it is assumed’.

        We must accept, God does not lie.

        Therefore Lazarus was dead, had been dead for four days and when instructed to open the tomb there were protests that his corpse would have started to decompose.

        However. The tomb was opened and the Lord “called” him out.

        We should note, the disciples witnessed that a dead man could walk out of a tomb after being declared dead.

        One purpose was to demonstrate to the disciples that the Lord had authority over death before His crucifixion. He gave them something to hold on to.

        But the thread opens with eternal life starting now.

        Where is lazarus today?
