Arise from the Dead

Jesus Christ is ALIVE and He reigns, He is Lord of lords and King of kings, but sadly for most of those who believe in Him, THEY ARE STILL DEAD IN THEIR SINS. Jesus cannot be seen in them. They believe that they are saved but they are conformed to the world. There is no difference between them and the world. They are still dead in their sins. Paul wrote in Romans 13:11. “ knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. 12The night is almost gone, and the day is at hand. Let us therefor lay aside the deeds of darkness and PUT ON the armor of light. 13LET US BEHAVE PROPERLY as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14But PUT ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND MAKE NO PROVISION FOR THE FLESH IN REGARD TO ITS LUSTS.”
Many believers are still living according to the flesh, they are not ready for the coming of Jesus Christ. They are not ready to die and to meet their Maker. They are still DEAD IN THEIR SINS. Paul also wrote to the Ephesians, chapter 5:3 “But do not let immorality or any impurity or greed even be named among you, as is proper among saints;4and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.5For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
6Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7Therefore DO NOT BE PARTAKERS WITH THEM; 8for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9(for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE UNFRUITFUL DEEDS OF DARKNESS, but instead even expose them; 12for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.14For this reason it says,
“Awake, sleeper,
and ARISE FROM THE DEAD,
AND CHRIST WILL SHINE ON YOU.”
Most believers are conformed to this world, they are into immorality and into the same dissipation, all the desires of the flesh, as much as the world is. They are not in Christ, They are DEAD IN THEIR SINS. THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE WORLD. The modern day church IS “THE WORLD.” Dear friend, come out from amongst them, RISE FROM THE DEAD, be holy, OBEY Jesus Christ and Jesus will shine in and through you. Do not stay DEAD IN YOUR SINS, but come alive for Christ.
May Jesus bless you.
