Are You a Zombie?

zombies1The entertainment industry is a fascinating industry.  Today we are caught up watching zombies as entertainment. I do not understand the attraction of” living-dead” people. The dictionary defines a zombie as a “a dead person who is able to move because of magic according to some religions and in stories, movies, etc.” You might be surprised that ‘zombies’ are mentioned in the Bible!

Ephesians 2:1 says “ In the past your spiritual lives were dead because of your sins and the things you did wrong against God.” Paul was writing to Christ-followers stating what they once were: Spiritual Zombies. Physically, they could walk, talk, and interact with people but their true self (Spiritual beings) were dead. The key phrase in the above verse is were dead, stating their condition before confessing their sin and accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior. It is hard to grasp but the whole human race is destined to die because of Adam’s sin.1 Cor. 15:22 , Hebrews 9:27.

It is only in Jesus Christ that we can experience eternal life.  Acts 4:12 tells in reference to Jesus, There is salvation in no one else! For there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by whom we must be saved!”.

If you have not yet repented of your sins and accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior; you are dead. But the good new is you can have a spiritual rebirth and have a new life.

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again,[a] you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”…Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life.… So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You[d] must be born again. John 3

If you are only born once, you will die twice. Rev. 2:11 But if you are twice-born, you will only die once. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:12
