No, Christ will not die tomorrow…

No, Christ will not die tomorrow. He died once for all almost 2000 years ago for our sins: “For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). No, He will not die again: “knowing that Christ having been raised up from among [the] dead dies no more: death has dominion over him no more.” (Romans 6:9) Yes, He has risen once for all! And by their carnal traditions men teach people that Christ dies again and again each year, and then with this same carnal corruption they make wars with each other because of their contradictory traditions, and then with the same carnal mind they seek to be united with ungodly principles, under the flag of the Antichrist, under the principles of Ecumenism. Their followers are learning that Christ dies again and again, so death has dominion over their false christ, therefore they still walk in death, and not in newness of life, and sin is master over them. No… no, dear brothers… Christ has risen! He has risen once for all! He will not die again anymore! Death has no dominion over Him! It was because of our sins that He died, and not because of any sin in Him! And all those who have this truth in their hearts by faith will reign with Him! They do not kill Him again and again! They have risen with Him to walk in newness of life, so they will never die in sin again: “We have been buried therefore with him by baptism unto death, in order that, even as Christ has been raised up from among [the] dead by the glory of the Father, so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4) If we have the true faith in Christ, then we are united with Him by baptism unto death, so we walk in newness of life, because sin has no dominion over us anymore just as death has no dominion over our Lord anymore: “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for ye are not under law but under grace.” (Romans 6:14) But those who do not have this true faith in Christ, then how will they reign with Him? No, they will fall, like those rocky places where the seed of the sower fell: “But he that is sown on the rocky places — this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, but has no root in himself, but is for a time only; and when tribulation or persecution happens on account of the word, he is immediately offended.” (Matthew 13:20-21) They will fall like those among the thorns: “And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns, this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” (Matthew 13:22) This is a dead faith. But those who have put their trust on the once-for-all Sacrifice of the cross know by faith that Christ has risen. It is through this faith alone that they are made alive by the Grace of God alone; they have eternal life: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, that he that hears my word, and believes him that has sent me, has life eternal, and does not come into judgment, but is passed out of death into life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, that an hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that have heard shall live.” (John 5:24-25) Notice that “now is“… This is indeed the first resurrection, when they hear the voice of the Son of God, and all those who hear LIVE: “And I saw thrones; and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of those beheaded on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God; and those who had not done homage to the beast nor to his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and hand; and they lived and reigned with the Christ a thousand years: the rest of the dead did not live till the thousand years had been completed. This [is] the first resurrection. Blessed and holy he who has part in the first resurrection: over these the second death has no power; but they shall be priests of God and of the Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4-6) Yes, only over these sin shall not have dominion, because only these have the life of Christ in them; they are all those true Christians who live and reign with Christ, although in flesh they are persecuted and killed for their testimony! As they hear the voice of the Son of God, they live once for all and reign with Him; this is the first resurrection. Of course those who believe in a christ who dies again and again every year, and even every week and day, do not rise yet in this first resurrection; they are under the dominion of sin and death; they serve as slaves; they can’t reign with Christ like the elect: “Since therefore the children partake of blood and flesh, he also, in like manner, took part in the same, that through death he might annul him who has the might of death, that is, the devil; and might set free all those who through fear of death through the whole of their life were subject to bondage.” (Hebrews 2:14-15)

If you are still in your sins and you do not have Christ by faith, then you are a slave of sin, even though you may think that you are free: “They answered him, We are Abraham’s seed, and have never been under bondage to any one; how sayest thou, Ye shall become free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Every one that practises sin is the bondman of sin. Now the bondman abides not in the house for ever: the son abides for ever. If therefore the Son shall set you free, ye shall be really free.” (John 8:33-36)

Repent, turn to God by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only Savior.
