The enemy attempts to dig a pit for you, My Child, but he shall fall into it himself. For your Savior has brought your soul up from Sheol, I have rescued you from the land of the dead.
I have brought you unto the land of the living and I have restored you back to life. I have brought you up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and I have set your feet upon a Rock.
I have rescued your soul from death, and your eyes from tears. You shall see my Goodness in the land of the living, Dear One.
Fear not, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. I am He that lives and was dead and BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE forevermore and I have the keys of hell and of death. You have been translated from the domain of darkness into the kingdom of My Dear Son.
Death has been defeated. Your soul has been lifted up from the realm of the dead and I have raised you up with My own Right hand and seated you with Me in the heavenly realms. You are ALIVE in Me, Dear One.
Death and sin have NO dominion over you. Shout unto your God with the voice of triumph for I AM causing your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come against you one way, and flee before you seven.
