My Dead Pet Eel

Thursday, September 18, 2014

When I was 8 years old, I had a little pet eel in my fish tank. I liked watching it. One day it jumped out of the fish tank and it dried up. But for years, though, I kept that eel in my pocket. Sometimes I kept the eel in my desk at school, and sometimes I took it on trips. People had pens in their shirt pockets, but I had an eel. So I carried this eel around for a long time until one day it hit me and I said, "What am I doing carrying around an eel?" So I threw it away. Well, Messiah rose from the dead. When he arose He put off the linens, the spices, and the wrappings of death. So the power of the resurrection is also that you have the power to put away dead things. Paul did that, he had to take off the wrappings of his old life so he could be free. You have the same power, because Messiah removed His burial wrappings so you could remove yours. Or to say it in another way, it's time to put away that eel.

From Message #776 - The Passover - Shavuot Resurrection Power
