Spirit of Life

“Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.”Hebrews 7:16

The Word says that the last enemy to be defeated, or overcome, is “death.”

“For He must reign, till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”I Corinthians 15:25-26

We cannot overcome death in heaven, rather, it must be done during our present span of life. Jesus came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly.

“The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”John 10:10

So we might have and enjoy this more abundant life, the Lord is seeking to take us beyond our present understanding of the Word, into the full working of the “law of the Spirit of life.”

“That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”Romans 8:4-6

For us to “walk in the Spirit” results from our heart obedience to the written Word and to the leadings of the Holy Spirit, which may seem as foolishness to many. For the Lord to accomplish this, we must present our bodies to Him as a living sacrifice.
When I “mind” the things of the Spirit, I become spiritually minded, which brings life and peace, because I have released the Lord to move in and through my life experience.No matter what my circumstances might be, I am to believe that “all things work together for my good.”This changes my attitude from becoming a victim of the “law of sin and death,” to my obtaining life and health through the “law of the Spirit of life.”
As I come under the working of the “Spirit of life,” I am healed and released from the process of death so I might live as an end-time witness of the power of God. The world will be greatly affected by this witness.
May the “law of the Spirit of life” have its full work in your life, by the grace of God
