Living God

October 29th daily blog devotional by Keith Wayne Edwards


Read:

Revelation 1:18


I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

It's good to know what Jesus did for us on that cross. What Adam, Eve, and Lucifer did was beyond what we can even imagine. God allowed trust to be there for them because fellowship can't be true without a will and a trust that can be broken. God didn't set Adam and Lucifer up for a fall. He didn't create them and say, "Now I want you to sin Adam!" Go ahead Lucifer! Do your thing. God didn't want any of this to happen, but it did. Gods' heart was so broken when this happened. God either rejoices when faith is expressed from His children receiving eternal life never to perish by coming to Christ, or there is a grieving pain when He sees an apostasy spirit from His creation which took place with the great fall. What happened then is beyond what we could ever imagine for God's ways are higher than our ways. That trust was broken. God had a plan though, and He told Satan in Genesis 3:15 that He was going to bring forth a seed that would crush the power that he had. Thank God that Jesus has the keys of death and Hades. Hades was a place where the saints of old were until Jesus died on the cross. His death brought forth a power that shook not only the earth but scared the devil to death. I believe that every demon in hell shook with terror when Jesus took His last breath on the cross, and Jesus holds the keys. I remember meditating on this subject about the cross and how the devil wanted Jesus to die on that cross and that would be the end-all. I fell asleep, and in a dream, there were these people who didn't believe in God. I was the only one in the room that believed in Christ. The people in the room shouted, "God is dead!" God is dead!" I immediately shouted back to them and said, " God is not dead but He is alive!" He is alive!" Then one of them brought a book to me and showed me a picture. In this picture was Jesus on the cross with demons rejoicing and dancing around the cross. I stood up and preached to them that God is not dead but He is alive and He was resurrected. Then I felt a hand grab me and pull me out of this room. I believe it was an angel. This angel took me outside and said these words. "Son, they don't understand that Jesus died and is alive. You see, Satan and his demons lost all revelation of even the prophecies pertaining to Christ' death. They lost all the attributes that God had put within them, and we see that he was blind-sided when God allowed His Son to die a horrible death for humanity. Satan became so angry at Jesus that he wanted him to disappear, but little did he know what the love that he couldn't understand would do to his kingdom. Even the Kings of this world seen they made a big mistake crucifying Jesus, because now a million new followers of this so called risen Christ began to do the same works that Jesus did, and they regretted it. Satan wants everyone who will ever be born to believe the lie that God isn't a God of love, but we see that the new blood covenant is full of selfless love that cannot be explained, and can only be understood by those who have been born again of His Spirit. I awoke to realize that Jesus is alive, He does have the keys, and He was resurrected. Thank God for the resurrection today. I want you to realize and have a revelation today that Christ Jesus does live and He can strengthen you today in whatever you are facing. You can have hope today that there is a living God not only in the heavens but within us.



Prayer:



Lord, we ask that you will give us that revelation that you do live. You are alive and you live within us as believers. Help us to cling on to the resurrection like never before, and help us to draw strength from you today. Thank you, Lord, for what you did on that cross, Amen.
