Death cannot hold the resurrection life

Sister Tang

Death can’t hold the resurrection life!


Bielefeld, Germany

We sang this hymn at the burial of our daughter.

And we can testify: Death cannot hold the resurrection life.

Day by day we can receive grace as open vessels to live through and by this life.

We are just learners and receivers.

Praise Him!

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!

And fruits of life abundant realize.

Death cannot hold the resurrection 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!
