The Speaking Dead (Hebrews 11:4-6)

June 29, 2013 by Pito

 

   Abel, being dead, is still speaking. He is speaking of righteous sacrifices and he is speaking of justice. His life cried out for proper worship and his death cried out for proper vengeance.

   Will you be speaking after you are dead? I pray that we all will be speaking throughout the rest of human history as our descendants and others who follow us in the faith manifest the influence of our words and conduct in an ever growing and glorious Kingdom of our Lord Jesus. This is our legacy to the future.

  Enoch and Elijah are the only two men who did not die physically. Even Jesus, the spotless and pure Lamb of God, died and what a death it was. Like Abel, Jesus’ blood is also crying out, but His blood speaks better things than that of Abel. Jesus” blood cried out for the justice required by the Father and it cried out mercy and grace to justify sinners. Jesus’ blood cries out from the ground every time the gospel is preached, every time we declare the goodness of God in Christ Jesus.

   There is coming a day when we will all appear before the judgment seat of Christ to give account of the deeds done in our bodies. Christians should not fear that day but look forward to it because Christ will judge us as His children, according to familial compassion. When God recompenses our comparatively paltry works with the gift of eternal life, we will be full of gratitude for eternity.

   Our initial justification is on the Table before us. Through this sacrifice God has declared us righteous in His sight. We are accepted in the Beloved. Let us partake with joy and a thanksgiving that leads to eternal life, to our final justification at the consummation of all things.

“Let him that is thirsty come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
