Do You Know The Power of The First Resurrection?
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. (Revelation 20:6)
This is the Revelation of God to us who believe on Christ: Blessed and Holy is He that hath part in the first Resurrection!
Have you a part in this first resurrection? Are you made Holy and Blessed by your union with Jesus Christ as your representative man (Ephesians 1:4-6; 1 Corinthians 1:30)?
Have you any part in the new birth by which we receive the holy nature of Jesus Christ and are cleansed by His blood (John 3:6-8; 5:25-29; 1 Corinthians 6:11; Hebrews 9:22)?
Then happy are you, for you will never die and the second death has no power over you! Rejoice in the very teeth of your trials, for no power can harm you that is not ordained of God for your good and His glory. No power of hell, no will of man, nor circumstance of time can ever separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. May the Holy Spirit comfort us with these blessed revelations of His Holy Immutable and Sovereign word.
