Revelation 20:6 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.
Reading today’s verse had me in a “baptecostal” fit, LOL! 🙂 Not only are you and I blessed to take part in the first resurrection (Rapture), ladies, but we are considered HOLY! Stop and meditate on that for a moment. I’m most definitely NOT holy. However, because of Christ and His payment for my sin, I am made holy in HIS righteousness! Amen? Once you wrap your head around that, you’ll start your own baptecostal fit! 🙂 That’s when you realize that it is by Him alone – His grace alone – that we are saved. Not of ourselves – there’s nothing we can do to add to our salvation or the outcome. The Father sees the Apostle Paul and you in the same light – the light of Jesus Christ, His Son.
As if this little nugget isn’t enough, we know that the second death has no power over us. We are free from that. Hallelujah what a Saviour!!!
