The walking dead

Mark 2:21-22 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins-and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.
The are several passages in the old Testament where the Lord gives instructions not to go near or touch a dead body.
The life of a believer is a choice to life and to only be attached to living.
Deut. 30:19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life that you and your offspring may life. Everybody in the kingdom of God represents heaven is life and everything under the power of the devil is death. There are some of us today attached to some dead habits, dead relationships, and dead situations.
Proverbs 11:19 says The truly righteous man attain life, but he who pursues evil goes to his death.
Matthew 7:14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that lead ti life, and only a few find it. There seems so much and so many that make promises of a better, happier and at the same time it so seldom can deliver.
The TRUTH is plain and simple about what it is that truly can give and deliver us life. Jesus is the deliver of LIFE.
John 6:47-48 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I am the bread of life.
John 6:63 The Spirit gives life.
John 10:10b I come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Resist the lies of the enemy that would have to be seek anything and anyone with the promise that it or they will make life better. You start to live in such resentment and frustration when you think your joy is out THERE somewhere and you can get to it. The truth is that Jesus is our life. In Him there is peace that the world and all its concerns and problems can't take away. The truth is that Jesus is the way. The way of out your problems, frustrations and disappointment.
Jesus is the truth. The truth that the man, the woman, the better joy, the tighter body and more money won't accomplish in your life what HIS presence will. HE is the only way. Again I decree Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Stop believing the lies of the devil by attaching yourself to those dead things that only want to pollute your soul and kill you.
Leave the old and cleave to the new. Sever from your mind, heart and your life every dead thing that has the potential to kill your life.
In Jesus Name LIVE and Be Blessed, Manie
