12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and
death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all
13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed
when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over
them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's
transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through
the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God,
and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ,
hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift:
for the judgment was by one to condemnation,
but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one;
much more they which receive abundance of grace and
of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one,
LIGHT from the WORD.
ONE thing the COVID19 has done that is GOOD in the
world today: it has brought to the hearts of MILLIONS
the IMMINENCE of DEATH!
ANOTHER thing that has been brought to light in the world:
the UGLINESS of SIN!
It is BECAUSE of sin, that death REIGNS among men today!
HOPEFULLY, the world is also seeing that "..the GIFT
of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ!"
According to verse 13 of our text above, the LAW did NOT
SIN brought death!
BEFORE the law, death REIGNED in ALL because of SIN!
But God is loving, merciful and extends in grace the
OFFER of eternal forgiveness and salvation.
And that offer came at the price of His OWN BLOOD!
Sadly, many millions have refused that offer.
But for those who HAVE received the offer by surrender
to Jesus as Lord, they have become forgiven and made
to be "sons of God"!
Death (by sin) "reigned"; (past tense)
But LIFE by Christ REIGNS! (present perfect tense)
Because Jesus CONQUERED death, hell and the grave!!
And HIS life IN you can reign ETERNALLY over death!!
YOU my friend can be brought before God forgiven,
cleansed, acquitted and FOREVER immortal and
incorruptible by the precious gift through Jesus Christ!!
(See 1Cor. 15:51-58)
Here's some GOOD NEWS today:
PHYSICAL death is not FINAL!!
There WILL BE an ultimate resurrection of ALL!
After that will be JUDGMENT!
Be SURE that when you appear before God AFTER
death, that you appear having SURRENDERED to Jesus
as LORD of your life!
Let the LIFE of Jesus REIGN in you today!!
