The Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Amuwo Odofin Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC), Lagos, Pastor Joe Jacobs has said that genuine disciples of Jesus Christ should not fret because of death.


He said death has become reality since when our first parents committed sin, noting that both Christians and none Christians know that death will come one day.


He further said that we all know that missing the standard of God is committed by all and sin has introduced us to so many things, but somebody has come to bridge the gap, through Him we receive grace.


Pastor Joe Jacobs stated while ministering on Sunday May 24, 2020 on the topic "Overcoming Anxiety 4."


Taking his text from John 11:1-25, the Cleric said God has a particular purpose for all, not untimely death but long life.


"The spirit of death is ravaging the world, don't allow anxiety to take over your life. Sometimes when sinners suffer, the just might take part. Children of God should position themselves because death is the wage of sin, one of the reasons we pray for mercy," he stressed.



He said signs of the threat of death are sickness and diseases, evil thoughts, activities of satan and its agents and word of your mouth, emphasizing that if people are afraid of death, it should not be Christians.


While commenting on how to overcome, Pastor Joe Jacobs urged those who have not given their lives to Christ to do so, adding that: "honour your parents so that your days shall be long."


He also said: "give God's work your priority, obey the law of the land, set your affection on the things above and give yourself to evangelism.


#Prayer : 

1. Every spirit of death in my life, I flush you out in JESUS name
2. I shall fulfil divine mandate, I will not die untimely in JESUS name
3. I give my life to JESUS and HE will preserve me till the end in JESUS name,  Amen.
