For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. ~ Romans 5:17 KJV
Death is present because one man disobeyed God. Who was this man? This man’s name is Adam. All because of one thing he did wrong all of humanity was condemned to death. We all became captive to Satan and Satan became the god of this world. Everyone who was ever born after Adam experienced fear and was afraid to die because they did not know where they were going once they left this world. Even today people still experience fear before they die. But many who have a relationship with the Lord have been able to overcome the fear because they know they are going to be with him.
In 1 Corinthians 5 the Bible tells us to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Once we leave this body we will be in his presence. There is no waiting period because Jesus paid the debt that was owed for Adam’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden. Throughout our life we are able to fellowship with Jesus and experience the power of his resurrection. God is not angry with us and He only wants us to enjoy the abundant life He has given us. Dive into his righteousness and experience peace. You have eternal life with Him now and we should bring as many people as we can to know Him too.
