GOD is LIVING and is from EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING (Psalm 90:2). Therefore, DEATH IS AN ENEMY of God:
The only begotten Son Jesus has ALL power in heaven and earth to destroy the works of the devil (Matthew 28:18) (John 3:16-18, 10:17–18, 14:6).
“For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” (Romans 8:22).
At the beginning of time, Lucifer, the once anointed cherub, the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan tried to usurp the power, authority and rule of God when he lied to Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:2–3). “But the LORD is the true God; he is the [LIVING GOD, AND AN EVERLASTING KING]:” (Jeremiah 10:10).
“For the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might [DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL]” (1 John 3:8).
“[FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE]. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming” (1 Corinthians 15:22-23).
“For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. [THE LAST ENEMY THAT SHALL BE DESTROYED IS DEATH]” (1 Corinthians 15:25-26).
In the Revelation of Jesus Christ John foretold of the Day of Judgment, saying: “[AND I SAW THE DEAD, SMALL AND GREAT, STAND BEFORE GOD]; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and [THEY WERE JUDGED EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS]. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. [THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH]. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:12–15).
“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; [WHEN HE SHALL HAVE PUT DOWN ALL RULE AND ALL AUTHORITY AND POWER]” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
JESUS says: “[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
