I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. Come now; let us leave. John 14:30-31 NIV

The seemingly victory of evil one over Jesus which led to His death on the cross was not synonymous to His inability to escape the gruesome death at the cross. Rather, it was a proof of His obedience to the will of His Father and the demonstration of His love for you and me.

His resurrection from the dead by the exceedingly great power of God on the third day is His vindication that neither human conspiracy no matter how strong, nor organized network wickedness, nor death, nor the grave can keep its hold on Him. At last, He arose and He his alive forever more.

If you likewise will hold steadfastly to your faith in Christ Jesus and will not give up too soon; you will surely triumph over all your adversaries and adversities, for it is impossible that God will abandon you to the realm of death and allow you to experience decay. May the Lord help you to remain courageous and obedient till you overcome eventually. Good morning.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
