SORROW and DEATH | LAWS MADE BY GOD

SORROW and DEATH

Most of the Christians know and the CHURCH emphasizes that SIN cause’s death according to Romans 6:23, James 1:15 and Romans 5:12 to name a few of the scriptures. 1 John 3:15 also states that hating your brother or sister causes death which is related to sin (Galatians 5:14 and Matthew 5:21-22)
But there is also something else which BIBLE states causes DEATH and it is not related to SIN. Few people know about this and you can understand this principle by reading the rest of the article.

THE PRICIPLE
WORLDLY SORROW causes DEATH. 2 Cor 7:10 states “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death”
The difference between sorrows which are godly and worldly can only be discerned in the heart of a person by the Holy Spirit

THE PLAN
SATAN’s goal is the death of human race starting from the fall in the garden (Gen 3:4) and he is also called “the one who has power of death” (Heb 2:14). Satan strikes people with afflictions either to “steal God’s word (Mark 4:19)” or “to make people renounce and curse God (Job 1:10-11)” or “to steal joy” so that he can cause death.
THE COMMMAND
We have a commandment “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”-Ph 4:4. Always means all the time irrespective of situation. Several scriptures also state not be sorrowful or sorrow should be limited to a definite time period (John 14:1, 1Th 4:13,Is 53:4, Ps 30:5, 1 Sam 16:1)
THE WORLD
The world believes “LAUGHTER THERAPY” may be good for health. Imagine what benefit JOY has in our life if soul, spirit and body rejoice together.
BENEFITS
Being CHEERFUL and JOYFUL is good to health (Proverbs 17:22). It heals physically and psychologically. It also repairs and re-establishes relationships. A certain humour and laughter in relationships does wonders to a relationship.

SO IN SHORT I SAY REJOICE AND AGAIN I SAY REJOICE ALWAYS
