Death’s Reign Is Over! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional March 12th

(Don’t Perpetuate Death Through Fear)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 5:14 NIV
“Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.“

Satan became the god of this world, because Adam committed high treason and sold out to him. Adam’s disobedience resulted in the reign of death.

Remember, God had said to Adam, “In the day that you eat of it (the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) you shall surely die” (Genesis 2:17). He was talking about spiritual death, which is the cause of physical death. So, our opening verse says, “Death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses.”

Scripture also lets us know satan was behind this reign of death; it says in Hebrews 2:14-15, “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”

Now, here’s something very interesting that I want you to notice: the reign of death ended with the emergence of the Law of Moses, because the reign of death was from Adam to Moses (Romans 5:14).

Also, they were in bondage, not because death was destroying them, but because they were afraid. The fear of death kept them in bondage, whereas death stopped reigning at the Law.

This means that through the law that was based on the Abrahamic covenant, any man could have power over death. But they didn’t know this, so they lived all their lives in bondage because of the fear of death.

Think how many people are afraid of death today! The fear of death keeps people bound, but Jesus Christ came to set men free from that: “Knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him” (Romans 6:9).

“Christ” is Jesus (the Head) and His body (the Church)! If death has no more dominion over the head, it doesn’t have dominion over any part of the body; death has no power over you. The Bible says you’ve been brought into life and immortality (2 Timothy 1:10). Glory to God!

Death has been paralysed and completely defeated by Jesus! Therefore, I have no fear of death. When Jesus defeated death, I was in Him, and together with Him, I’ve triumphed over death and the grave! Hallelujah!
