WHAT IS YOUR CHOICE…LIFE OR DEATH?
Text: Deuteronomy 30:19-20
“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make.
Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life…”
You see, a man’s body dies when his spirit checks out of it.
God is the life of the spirit…the spirit is the life of the body.
The day the first man, Adam sinned, God checked out of man’s spirit.
So, every man born into this earth since Adam, is born without life in his spirit (that is, born with a dead spirit) because God is not there.
So every such man/woman boy/girl lives cut off from God…That is, independent of God, totally insensitive to God!
That means God has no part, no say, no hand and absolutely no influence on such a man or woman’s (boy or girl’s) life at all ( no matter how much he desires to because of his love for man)! Isn’t that fatalistic?
Tell me, then, who reigns in such a person’s life? The devil, of course! Because he took the place of God in man’s spirit, and began to rule both man and the earth, immediately Adam disobeyed God’s Word, and sin came into man’s spirit…and death began to reign)…(Hebrews 2:15 calls him, “he that hath the power of death”).
>God rules in a man’s spirit with life…the devil rules in a man’s spirit with sin and death…
Romans 8:1-2 make this clear…
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
>God rules in a man’s life with light, the devil rules in a man’s life with darkness…John 1:4-5,
“In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
>God rules in a man’s life with health and prosperity, the devil rules in a man’s life with sickness, disease, all manner of afflictions and poverty (that is, spiritual, mental, financial, material and physical poverty)…I tell you!
Jesus summed it up in John 10:10,
““The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”
Now, my dear, what is your choice? Life or death? God or the devil?
Accepting Christ is choosing God…it is choosing life…it is choosing blessings…and putting an end to the reign of satan and death in your life, marriage, business, family, in your body, finances, etc…Yes!
Make that choice now!
