Spiritual Warfare: 'Jesus Holds the Keys to Death and Hell'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, August 2, 2021

When I saw him, I fell at his feet like a dead person. But he put his right hand on me and said: “Don’t be afraid! I am the first, the last, and the living one. I died, but now I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys to death and the world of the dead.
— Revelation 1:17-18 CEV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I praise You as the first and the last, and as the One who was once dead but now is alive and well and sitting at the right hand of God. You are the One who gives us all the victory over death and the grave that we so desperately need! You are Lord over life and death, and You even possess the keys to lock death away forever in eternal hell. I look forward to the day, Lord, when death is no longer a threat, but a distant memory of the time before life rules forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
