Death Can’t Touch YouDaily Thoughts
Numbers 16:48 “He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped”
God’s wrath was burning against the Israelites for their grumbling. He had started a plagued which had killed 14,700 Israelites already, until Aaron ran into the middle of the assembly and stood between the living and the dead.
What an amazing picture of Christ, that he stands between the living and the dead and has stopped the plague of sin for all eternity!
In history Christ’s death and resurrection dealt with the plague of sin once and for all…for everyone! Christ was crucified between two thieves; one of whom believed in him, the other one didn’t. Christ stood between the living and the dead.
Upon your salvation, Christ took his stand in your life to hold back the power of sin and death. The old has gone, the new has come and death can longer touch it! Because of your salvation, your life is no longer be consumed by the plague of sin and death.
Ephesians 6:16 “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one”
Why can the evil one only fire arrows at you? Because Christ stands between you and death and allows no-one to cross him. All the devil can do is fire his arrows of lies at you over the divide. Death can’t touch you.
