Psalm 49:15

“But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.”

Name one power on the face of the planet that is guaranteed to redeem you from the grave. There isn’t a power yet that can bring someone back from death. People can go in and out of consciousness, they can be at the brink of death and be revived, but once death's grip has closed upon a soul, no device or manmade object can ever bring them back. There is only one person who has power over the grave; that is the one who conquered it Himself.

It is an amazing thing that Jesus Christ conquered the grave. It is a reality that Christ rose from the dead, but what does that do for you? He conquered the grave and that was great for Him, but what does that do for anyone else, you might ask? It is a valid question.

The even more amazing thing is that Jesus Christ conquered the grave and that same power dwells in you through a new birth into Christ. That same power that raised Him will also raise you. The Holy Spirit, the same one that raised Christ from the dead, was sent back to indwell the Believer who is born again into Christ’s resurrection. It is Christ’s Deity in you, your hope of glory.

No one knows how close the grave is to them. A young person is just as much capable of dying as someone who is older. No one knows their time to go. But for the Believer, God has redeemed our soul from the grave. He shall receive His own.

Praise the Lord for redeeming your soul from the grave.

49-1225 - “The Deity Of Jesus Christ”

He stood back there; He's the Creator of all things. He made life, frogs, and all these ducks, chickens, animals, created everything. "And nothing was made but what was made by Him." Who? Christ, the Deity. "He brought down pla—plagues and everything in the days of Egypt." Who? Christ. "He stopped the—the mouths of lions. He quenched the violence of fire. They escaped the edge of the sword. They raised the dead from the grave." Who? Christ. Oh, my, what would it be? Who is it? Christ, the Deity. And, brother, sister, that Deity's in you. "A little while and the world seeth Me no more, yet ye shall see Me, for I'll be with you, even in you, to the end of the age." Christ in the manger? No. Christ in you. Hallelujah. We're not worshipping Christ in the manger, but Christ in you, the Holy Ghost, the hope of Life (Hallelujah.), the Creator, God Himself dwelling in the human being. "It does not yet appear what we shall be, but we'll see Him as He is."
