One of the most staggering verses in Paul’s writings is this:
2 Tim 1:10
but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel (NKJV)
He destroyed death and showed us the way to have life. Yes, through the Good News Jesus showed us the way to have life that cannot be destroyed. (ERV)
Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus. (MSG)
For the last year we’ve been teaching at TRIBE (our mentoring group in Wales) on the profound implications of the GOSPEL of LIFE and LIFE in abundance (John 10:10). For the SPIRIT of LIFE in Jesus Christ has freed us from the law of SIN + DEATH (Rom 8:2). What could this possible mean?
This is a profound mystery Paul said, some of us would not die (sleep), but we would ALL be changed (1 Cor. 15:51). Paul believed it was possible to be changed without seeing death. Mind bending words indeed!
Join us as we examine these truths and more in this new series. We’re starting to make more of this teaching available and now have 3 sessions in our store. There will be more coming soon. Keep watching.

Expect more on this soon, as LIFE swallows up death, and we say again “Where o Death is your sting?” For whoever believes in Him will not perish (decay or come to an end), but have everlasting LIFE! (John 3:15-16). This is challenging, stretching and shocking. However, we must not skirt over the greater promises of scripture just because they are so out of our minds. With God truly ALL things are possible.
As scripture says, we will tremble with awe at His goodness in the last days (Hosea 3:5). Even our bodies will tremble and be included in this salvation bliss. The Spirit on flesh. The body is the Temple of the Spirit and it is priceless and beautiful.
Bill Johnson says “We will know our mind is renewed when the impossible looks logical!” For us Life is beginning to look logical! Death is the enemy. The simple understanding is this – God wants His Kingdom to be on Earth as it is in Heaven. Heaven is ALIVE.
Truly we will again say, God saved the best until last!
BLISS be yours!
