DEATH-FREE BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).
There’re two sets of laws referenced in our opening verse: the law of the Spirit of life and the law of sin and death. Of the two, the law of life, is superior and more powerful than the law of sin and death. Being born again, the law that’s at work in you is the law of life. The God-life (Greek: Zoe) is inherent in you, and as a result, you’re death-free.
It doesn’t matter whatever corrupting influences, including death, are working against the people of the world; you’re immune to them all. Death has ceased to work in you; you’re off its limits. You don’t belong in the realm of death. It’s important to understand that Apostle Paul wasn’t just trying to give us a sense of deliverance from death; he wasn’t saying the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has “freed” us from death, but that it has MADE us death-free. That means, you’re untouchable by death.
It’s like a room or an area that’s “soundproof”; that means sound can’t get in, no matter how you try. In Christ Jesus, you’re “death-proof!” The only way you can bring death into your life is if you reprogramme yourself otherwise, by speaking words of death. The Bible says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” (Proverbs 18:21).
Keep yourself healthy and sound with your words! Don’t talk sickness, disease, poverty or defeat. Rather, declare regularly, “In my path there’s no death! I walk the way of life, because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, has made me free from the law of sin and death”. The Bible says if any man be in Christ he’s a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). You’re in Christ Jesus, and the law that operates in Christ is the law of life; you’re alive to God!
