Death for the believer is no longer just death...It is sleep. When we die, we fall asleep in Jesus, laying away this house of clay for a little while. Deaths means going to be with Jesus-Which is far better. Like sleep, death for us is temporary and has its awakening. PoP

Christ controls death "He has the keys of death and Hades" Think of it! The devil doesn't have the keys to his own house! The keys are a symbol of authority, of control, of possession rule. As terrible as it is death is not allowed to run rampant without control. Nothing happens by chance. All history lies in the elective purpose of All Mighty God. Even death is in the hands of God. It moves only at the permissive will of Heaven.

Christ holds the key to the door of death, and no man enters it unless Christ uses the key and opens it.

Christ conquered death. "I was dead, and behold, I am alive for ever more." Death for Christians isn't permanent or final. Death will not hold us forever. Christ died and survived the grave and because He lives we shall live also...Christ shares His victory with us.

Luke 2:29
Sovereign Lord, as you have promised you now dismiss your servant in peace.

Ephesians 5:14
Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

2 Peter 1:11
and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Some glad morning when this life is o'er, I'll fly away.
To a home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away. Will you?

The principle is

"The principle is that we are to be in the world, but not of the world, like a ship should be in the water, but water shouldn’t be in the ship! But if the world is influencing us, it is clear we are unequally yoked together with unbelievers–[it] may come through a book, a movie–or even through worldly friends–Christians are far too indiscriminate about the things they allow to influence their minds and lives."–David Guzik.

Your Salvation

For those that have not answered His call and still hear it...

Be thankful. This lets you know He is still calling and waiting for you. In time He will stop touching you and it will be too late...Please do not wait! Next time you feel His presents, ask Him into your heart, except Him as your Savior, living God and ask His forgiveness...Then you can really start to live and live...ALWAYS. God gave all His Children free will and ability of choices. Choices in your life will cut the road your soul will take when you give it up.

If you died today, what would be the condition of your immortal soul? Would your family and friends need worry about this same question?? If you can not give an honest answer to the above, you need to do some soul searching. Trust in faith you can't see and keep it. All one need do is open their hearts and believe in that new found faith...Doing so you will feel His presents.

This is what God told us: 1John 5:11-12; God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life, but whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

Your Salvation is this simple: John 3:16; God loved you so much that He gave His one and only Son so whoever believes in Him may not be lost and have eternal life.

Close your eyes and talk to Him as you would your best friend:

Heavenly Father,

I come to You in prayer asking for the forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my mouth and believe with my heart that Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of Heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and I ask You right now to come in to my life and be my personal Lord and Savior. I repent of my Sins and will Worship You all the day's of my Life!. Because your word is truth, I confess with my mouth that I am Born Again and Cleansed by the Blood of Jesus! In Jesus Name, Amen.

If you said this prayer, and really believe, you will now live by faith, you have been born again and are now a new person...You have eternal life through Him...It's that simple!

Not all the wisdom and skill of men can produce life

Too many Christians believe that love and grace is an automatic activity. In this verse we see that adding to our faith is not only under our command and control but we are also to put every effort into becoming better Christians. The circumstances life, especially the bad circumstances, can leave us worn out, embittered, and spiritually lost. Unless we make a concerted effort to see past the pain and difficulty of our lives we will grow but in the wrong direction. Faith requires work. The work required consists of prayer, fasting, study, thinking, reading, and reaching out to others without any regard to getting a return.

The change of heart by which we become children of God is in the Bible spoken of as birth. Again, it is compared to the germination of the good seed sown by the husbandman. In like manner those who are just converted to Christ "are as newborn babies" to grow up to the stature of men and women of Christ Jesus 1 Peter 2:2, Ephesians 4:15 or like the good seed sown in the field, they shall be called trees of the field, they shall be called trees of righteousness Isaiah 61:3. So from natural life, illustrations are drawn, to help us better to understand the mysterious truths of spiritual life.

Not all the wisdom and skill of men can produce life in the smallest object in nature. It is only through the life, which God Himself has imparted, that either plant or animal can live. So it is only through the life from God that spiritual life is begotten in the hearts of men. Unless a man is born from above, he cannot become a partaker of the life which Christ came to give John 3:3.

It is God who brings the bud to bloom and the flower to fruit. It is by His power that the seed develops, first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear Mark 4:28. The prophet Hosea says of Israel that he shall grow as a vine Hosea 14:5,9. and Jesus bids us consider the lilies how they grow Luke12:2. Jesus teaches the same things when He says," Abide me, and I will abide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruits itself ex kept it abide in the vine; no more can ye except ye abide me.
John15: 4,5

Men have an idea that they must do some part of the work alone. They have trusted in Christ for the forgiveness of sin, but now they seek by their own efforts to live aright. But even such efforts must fail. Jesus says without Me ye can do nothing. Our growth in grace, our joy, our usefulness all depend upon our union with Christ. He is the author and finisher of our faith.

The Bible tells us that "faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17). Let us remember what faith is. In its simplest form, faith is believing God will do what He says He will do (Romans 4:20-21). To know what God says to us, we must read the Bible, God's revealed words to man. It tells us how He wants us to live. It tells us what He will do for us. It includes many accounts of His dealings and intervention for individuals and all mankind.
