ABOUT THE BOOK
The Benefits of Christ’s death
Authored in 2008
This Book emphasized the basic fact that the death of our Lord Jesus Christ enacts all the Covenant God have made with his children. Now note that whatever covenant promises God had in Abraham becomes irrelevant if Christ did not die. In other word if Christ did not die, nobody can partake in the Abrahamic blessing beyond Abraham and his seed. Christianity would therefore have been vain and vague – with nothing to look forward to. Several portion of the covenant read:
“….and I will bless thee;
….unto thy seed have I given this land;
….and I will establish my covenant between
me and thee and thy seed…’’
Genesis 12:2; 15:18; 17:7
Thank God Jesus Christ Died! By his death; we who have been sanctified and born again become joint-heirs with him, because we are baptized into His death and consequently His resurrection. So, everything that Jesus has is also ours. But if He did not die no Christian would be a partaker of His blessings and glory. Just as a son does not have access to the inheritance of his father until he dies, neither can we have access to the inheritance of Jesus until He dies.
By His death therefore, we have access to the salvation package – healing, blessing, long life, protection etc. But He did not only die to give us legal right to His inheritance according to His will but He also resurrected to ensure that we get all that He left us in His Will!.
If you have read this book up to this point, perhaps, you would have formed an opinion in your mind that there is a disconnect between paragraph one and paragraph two. You are probably correct.
But then there lies the beauty of this book – THE BENEFITS OF CHRIST’S DEATH. The author cleverly wove the old testament’s covenant promises to Abraham and his seed and the new testament fulfillment of these promises in the believers who are the followers of Jesus Christ, (who was referred to in the old testament as the seed of Abraham). Apostle Paul’s revelation on the subject goes thus:
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us it is written cursed is every one that is hangeth on a tree. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ, that we might receive the promise of the spirit through faith…Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not And to SEEDS as of MANY but as of ONE, and to they SEED, which is Christ”
The conclusion from the foregoing is that Abraham’s Blessing are our through Jesus Christ. This book is well researched and awe-inspiring. It provides an arsenal of healing tools that will help any sick or afflicted person get out of his or her infirmity and live a vibrant and victorious life.
The purpose of this book is to give to Christians, yearning and desiring the true and undiluted word of God concerning Healing and Divine Health; a study guide of sound Biblical Concepts concerning this as we are enjoined in the Bible to “search the scriptures, for in them you think ye have eternal life and they are they which testify of me” John 5 v39. If you or your relations have ever been ill or sick of any infirmity or you have ever wondered about the purpose of Christ’s Sacrificial Death on the Cross of Calvary or you have ever wondered or thought of the will of God concerning you or your loved ones; then this book is for you.
The will of the father is embedded in HIS words. To know His will we are compelled to study the words of God line-by-line and precept-by-precept so that we can understand and discover that God actually said ‘Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth’ III John 1v2
We cannot attain unto perfection and reach the utmost height without the word of Gods, the word eliminate doubt and give us even more assurance of our salvation, the Bible recorded in 1st John 5v11-12 “and this is the testimony God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his son. He who has the son has life; he who doesn’t have the Son of God does not have life” It is indeed the study of the word of God that gives us dynamic faith in all circumstances in life, as it is clearly outlined in Heb 10:36 ‘For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise’. And the basic fact of the words of God in 1John 2:17 ‘And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever’, in good health and God’s grace of course!
With the inspiration from the Holy Spirit divine, this book is divided into Seven (7) Chapters:

You would agree with me that this book is indeed heavily loaded. So many Bible references has been provided so that Bible scholars, teachers and Bible student will find the book very useful both for personal study, home fellowship, family devotion, Bible studies or even Sunday school class. This book is indeed not for docile, lazy or visionless people; but the heavenly concisions and the earthly wise who want good health for himself/herself and or their family members.
I am persuaded a new dawn is about to begin in your life. You cannot devotional and prayerful read this book (with faith) and remain the same! NOW, it is everyone’s chance to learn more about the Abrahamic Covenant, about our Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrificial death on the Cross of Calvary; about dynamic healing power of God; be healed and remained in good and God giving health. This is why this book is written.
I therefore prayerfully present this book to you in the hope that it would be used of God to bring a simple and clear understanding of his word, to inspire you to receive and enjoy the full Benefits of Christ’s Death for your body, soul and spirit.
