I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord (Psalms 118:17).
What are the works of God?
Jesus said, Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake (John 14:11).
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord (Luke 4:18-19).
Jesus brought life to the world. He brought healing to the sick, peace to the troubled, joy to the sorrowful, resurrection life to the dead, strength to the weary, sight to the blind, wholeness to the broken and fearful soul, deliverance to the demon possessed, hope to the hopeless, and He brought Light into the world.
Life produces and creates life. The scriptures declare, In Him was life; and the life was the light of men (John 1:4-5). The kingdom of darkness will never overthrow or extinguish the light; nor can it understand the light. However, people can be delivered and freed out of darkness and translated into the kingdom of light – the kingdom of God’s Son (Colossians 1:13).
Translated defined: moving from one place or condition to another (New Oxford American Dictionary).
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10:13-15)
God’s works are to be told from the mountain top, to the valley low. Wherever we go people should know that we are the children of God. We have a testimony and we are witnesses of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. No one should have to die without Him, because you did not want to share Him and declare His works!
