Thoughts on the Reign of Death
Men who carry grudges and have an unforgiving spirit have been taken captive in their mind to be soldiers for Satan. Death is reigning in that aspect of their life and they don't realize it.
2Ti 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
Ro 8:10 ¶ And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
