Death cannot hold the resurrection life,
The life of God eternal manifest;
’Tis uncreated, indestructible,
’Tis Christ Himself, unconqu’rable, expressed

So good to sing this to the enemy! I believe that Satan doesn’t quite understand resurrection life! He still thinks what happened to the 3rd was a fluke! The more he presses us! The more this life reacts in power. As Christians we have a hydropower death swallowing life within us! May we know this life and experience it more and more. Amen

Oh, may I know this resurrection life, In every kind of death its pow’r outpoured,
In my experience ever realize
This life is nought but Christ my living Lord.
Thank You Lord Jesus You are so accessible by breathing Your name, praying Your word, and singing about all who You are!
Hallelujah!! Christ is the resurrection and the life.

I have spent too much time living in fear of death situations, even to the point of being paralyzed. Enslaved for years by this condition...
I found this hymn to be wonderful as it not only reveals that we do not have to fear physical death, but all kinds of death situations. Furthermore, these death situations only give an opportunity for The Resurrection life to thrive. For once we have passed into death, we will be on the threshold of resurrection. If we have this realization , we should never be frightened , but welcome death situations and be happy for them (I can't believe I am writing this, but this is a fact- my past ways of handling this problem was just the opposite and would just lead to more fear and dread). Hallelujah! What a marvelous state to be in!
I am certain that many seemingly fearful, difficult and depressing experiences and situations are coming my way...
Oh may I know this more and more in my experience!
Death can not hold the resurrection life!!! It's a fact we can apply it. Praise Him for His provision.

When the Lord was in Hades He broke out! When He broke out He broke Hell.

To know the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings and to be conformed to His death is to know our wonderful Savior. Oh, may I know Him more and more so that He can build His church with Himself as the materials.
