“When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I AM the First and the Last. And the Ever-living One [I AM living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I AM alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hell (the realm of the dead).” (Revelation 1:17-18)
The Apostle John, who loved and walked with Jesus on earth, could not stand before His glory in this scripture. He “fell at His feet as if dead.” What a sight John must have beheld!
As Christians, we serve a Lord who has conquered death. He came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly! He not only conquered death, but he took the keys of death and hell from Satan! What a mighty God we serve!
Jesus says “I AM living in the eternity of the eternities.” Alive forevermore. He is the first-born of the dead, the resurrected ones. Who are the other resurrected ones? US. You and me! Jesus has paved the way for US to live in the eternity of the eternities also! I’ll say it again: what a mighty God we serve!
Truly, truly, truly, there is NO god besides our God! Our God reigns throughout eternity! Our God has purchased for us eternal life! That is worth shouting about!
“Father, I am so grateful that You sent Jesus to pave the way for me to live in the eternity of the eternities with You! Help me today to bring glory to Your Name through my life! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen and Amen!”
