I am . . . the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore. Revelation 1.17, 18.

Apart from resurrection there is no life. At the time of the Garden of Eden man could see the tree of life, but today life is only found in resurrection since death has already come in. Life today is represented by resurrection. And hence, without resurrection no one may approach God. The life in us which we believers know today has passed through death, therefore it is called resurrection life. How exquisite is the word of Revelation: “I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore.” Today’s problem is no longer how to keep alive but how to be raised from among the dead. And just as our Lord is now standing on resurrection ground, so we too must stand on the same ground. Nothing but what stands on resurrection ground may come before God. Everything must go through death and be made alive again.
