“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
In the last few days, I stressed that death and spiritual powers are not funny, but are to be taken seriously. It is also important to realize, however, that nothing can separate believers from God’s love.
Jesus Christ has conquered death when He was crucified and rose after three days. Now He is alive forevermore and has the keys of death. He will raise all of His children as well. Death could not hold Him; neither will it hold any Christian. Therefore, you need not fear death anymore if you have found eternal life in Jesus Christ.
Romans 8 also mentions angels, rulers and (spiritual) powers. Thinking about Satan and his servants can make you anxious, especially when you read Bible verses like “Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). It’s true that Satan has a lot of power in this world. But Jesus is stronger. He has destroyed Satan’s power by dying on the cross, and He will destroy Satan and his evil spirits completely at the end of time. God will not let anything separate us from Himself. His love is stronger!
