1 Corinthians 15:25-26 (NET) For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be eliminated is death.
After Salma believed in the Lord Jesus, she realized that she now had the ability and power to say ‘no’ to sin. One thing she found very difficult to say before was ‘no’. But because she was now in Christ, she received the power to become a child of God. This power gave her the boldness to escape the corruption in this world through lust.
Salma observed that the more she said ‘no’ to sin, the more she could say ‘yes’ and ‘amen’ to the promises of God and walk in the divine higher life she received through the new birth.
It is only those who escape the corruption in this world through lust that can partake in God’s divine nature by appropriating His great promises (see 2 Pet 1:4).
From today’s Bible verse, we see that the last enemy that the Lord would defeat is death.
The way to eliminate death is to get rid of sin because it is through sin that death came into this world–the wages of sin is death (see Rom 5:12, 6:23). As long as there is still sin, there would be death.
The new heavens and earth that would replace these old ones would be free of sin and death (corruption). It would never grow old like this present earth because there would be no corruption (decay) in it. Corruption and death are byproducts of sin.
Go into today remembering that even while in this body of flesh, we can begin to walk in a foretaste of our divine life. But this is only possible as we escape the corruption that is in the world through lust, and stand on God’s promises. God’s promises are the vehicle through which the realities of the divine life are appropriated.
