Humanity Was Ultimately Meant To Die! Satan Is Not The Author Of Physical Death! - Poem by Ontomu William

Humanity was ultimately meant to Die!
Satan is not the Author of physical death!

You are free to correct me If you feel I have missed a point;

Hi, my name is William: listen to this:
Today I have a testimony, I was dead, but now I am alive right from the pit of death I have been saved!

You see,
I have grown up fearing death, I have learned to fret and writhe in fear at the mention of the name death
I have been taught in church that death was first introduced by Satan when he lied to our great parents

And I hated death, and I hated Satan for he introduced death against Gods original plan and purpose
I, therefore, searched for the true meaning of death; I have asked those who have lived longer, and who understand the breadth of this ‘mocker'

Wikipedia told me that death is the termination of all biological functions which sustain an organism
Thesaurus teaches me that death is the ACT of dying and the end of life and permanent life cessation
In other words, death is the termination of the life of all the members of the body of a living organism

Yet still, I did want to get it right from my Bible, and so I consulted the Word of Truth concerning death
And I got to Genesis two line seventeen, and I saw God warning our parents concerning a tree

God Said to them, and I quote, ' But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it, you will certainly die.'

I asked God to teach me what this meant, and He taught me what kind of death occurred at the Garden of Eden
And I said to my Soul, surely, I must teach my brethren concerning this truth concerning death

The Death that Wikipedia and thesaurus defines is not the death that occurred at Eden, no, no!
Neither is it the death we have today when we lose our loved ones leaving us sad and gloomy… no!

As a matter of fact, for a Christian, this type of death is a transformation to another glory, not another day of sorrow and mourning as we have been ‘taught' to understand
This kind of death as described is a bridge to the other side, to the kingdom the Lord promised us

You see,
That is why Jesus told his disciples that it was better for him to go! He had accomplished His mission, ushering in life to fulfill prophecy

I want to say this; It is because of the same Ignorance as we have today that Adam and Eve died
God wanted humanity to live with him ultimately, and that is why he did not ask the man to eat the tree of life instead!

He loved these creatures so much that He wanted them to die one day so that He could be with them forever!
But Satan, being crafty and evil, He lied to our parents concerning the true meaning of the death that God meant in Genesis two seventeen

The kind of death that God meant is; Spiritual death and not Physical death.

You see,
I know you already know this; God speaks through Hosea that His people perish because of lack of sufficient Information and Ignorance
That is exactly what is happening in our age as Satan is still using fear and doubt to kill us every day

You see,
Physical death is not bad, but it is sad; Satan did not create physical death, but God did.
I want you to understand this, the Word of God is always above God, and He has to do what He has
Promised, He said to Adam, you will surely die! But look here, in Genesis five five, the Bible says that
Altogether, Adam lived a total of nine hundred and thirty years, and then he ‘died.'

You see!
He died physically after nine hundred thirty years! But he died spiritually on his birthday!
And God chased them away from Eden lest they should eat of the fruit of the tree of life and live forever!

You see!
They were not meant to live forever! Brethren! We were not supposed to live forever! We were meant to die someday so that we can live with God Forever!

The fall in Eden is a typical example of the word of God which fell along the path and the serpent took advantage as Jesus taught in the parable of the Sower

Satan only brought spiritual death and not physical death, God intended that we would one day die but Satan used Eve's ignorance of the Word of God to perpetuate his mission; stealing, killing and destroying

I wish the Woman would confirm from God or the Man himself concerning the true meaning of the ‘death' that Satan defined

Satan used fear and doubt and ignorance to confuse the woman; he could not be brave enough to approach the Man who had received the Command directly from God
No, no! He could not approach this Man who was full of the Spirit of God!

You see,

Sometimes I am convinced either Adam did not take the time to explain God's command to the woman exposing her to the crafty serpent, or Adam gave the wrong information to her or Eve voluntarily added to the law of God

My Prayer is that God will open our minds to understand what really happened at Eden, that we begin to fear spiritual death more than we fear physical death

Paul in his first letter to the Thessalonian's He warns them not to be ignorant of physical death but rather have hope as physical death is basically ‘sleep'; if you die in the Lord!

Paul says in Ephesians two that we were once dead in trespasses and sins, walking according to the course of this world
But thanks to God who prophesied more than 8000 years ago concerning the seed of the woman that would crush the head of the serpent! Alleluia!

And indeed, Jesus says in John six fifty-one that anyone who eats of His flesh will live forever

You see,
He came that those who are dead may be made alive once again!
All you need to do is to believe in Him, and His Word will touch every member of you that is dead, and you will receive life abundantly

The greatest gift God has ever given humanity is the gift of the tree of life which at Eden, He did not command man to eat, but now He commands every human being to eat and live forever

Only believe, and you will never fear physical death. From today henceforth, only believe in the Son, and you will never again have to fear because He will give you comfort, hope, and life forever and ever!

Never again will I fear death

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Satan has no authority over our lives, that is why he resorts to threats like Jezebel did with Elijah.he employs simple schemes like unnecessary fear, doubts even to do with miscellaneous issue because He thinks He has an upper hand on information, but God has sent forth His Word the Son to teach us that Satan is only a lier; the father of Liers but not the father of death.Jesus, who was slain from the foundation of the Earth had the Keys already! Alleluiah!
