The Lord Jesus is the Living One – He became dead, but now He is living! He actually lives forever and ever, and He holds the keys of death and of Hades (see Rev. 1:18). Death could not hold Him – He was vomited out by death, and Hades could not retain Him!
After accomplishing so much in His crucifixion, death, and burial, now Christ is in resurrection as the living One! In resurrection Christ as the living One can live in us to make us His living church.
He swallows up all the death in the church life, and as the Living One He walks among the local churches as the golden lampstands to adjust, trim, shepherd, cherish and nourish, so that we may shine out God!
Hallelujah for Christ in resurrection as the living One!
