I Am the Living
(2Co4:7-12)

God is living.
From everlasting to everlasting He is living and
He is the God of the living who is with those who are living (Mt22:32).

Faith is longing to be found as the living and
The life of this faith is in order to be judged as the living in the last day (2Ti4:1) always being alive before Him.

The difference between the living and the dead is that between heaven and earth.
In the midst of a war, an accident or a struggle with a disease,
The effort to prolong the life of the living would continue,
Though it would not for the dead as there is
A stark difference in the legal consequence and the treatment for them.

The Bible highlights the judgment of the living and the dead (2Ti4:1):
The living would head to the kingdom of heaven
While the dead to the second death, that is, hell (Rev20:12-15).

All the living things that God created in the beginning
Sustain their life by their breath (Ge7:21-22; Job7:7).
As such, man is no better than animals for
Once his same breath is cut off he will die (Ecc3:19).
As such, there is nothing more important for the living to know that they will die (Ecc7:2, 9:4-5).

The God of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob who revealed Himself to Moses (Ex3:6) had
The name I AM, that is, always existing (Ex3:14).
According to His covenant to their ancestor (Ge15:13)
God led his descendants Israel out of Egypt (Ex12:41) and
Commanded them to build a sanctuary where
They gave the blood of the sin offering of atonement (Ex30:10)
For the life of the flesh is in the blood (Lev17:11, 14).

When Aaron’s staff was placed in front of the sanctuary’s ark where the name Jehovah was
It budded and blossomed (Nu17:6-8).
In spite of it, however, the Israelites became corrupted
Inquiring of the mediums and spiritists, which eventually led them to their fall (Is8:19-20).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19-20), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would become the God of the living (Lk24:38)
Not in the name Jehovah but in the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:43) and
In place of all men be cut off from the land of the living (Is53:5-8) for
He is the living God who came in the flesh (Mt16:16; Jn1:14).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Died according to the command and testified that the Father alone is the ever living God (Jn10:18);
2) Condemned the devil the origin of sin, the ruler of death (He2:14; 1Jn3:8); and
3) Redeemed the sins of all men and sprinkled His blood, the Spirit of the always living and enduring Word (Eph1:7; 1Pe1:23).

He was raised among the dead after three days (Lk24:38-46) and
Sat on the throne in heaven as the Lamb of God,
The Living One who was once dead but now alive for ever and ever (Rev1:18).

The Holy Spirit comes to those who came to life by the blood of Yeshua and
Lets them always be living.

Therefore, in the name of Yeshua
The Christian worships and comes to life before the living God and,
Prays and breaths.
He eats the living and enduring Word and moves (He4:11-13),
Proclaims the kingdom of God (2Ti4:2) and
Testifies that he is alive on this day (Jas4:15),
Putting every effort to stay alive before Him for
Faith is in present tense and
In the last day he longs to be judged before Christ as the living and
Enter the kingdom of heaven where only the living dwells.

O Lord,
In my life, how much of my time is spent living before God?
Let me no longer be spent for the matters of the dead (Lk9:60).
Let me live before the Lord who is living every minute and second! Amen.
