Our text today is from 1st Corinthians 15:26. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
This verse is one of those verses that’s hard to imagine. Praise God for verses like this one.
Death. We all have to experience it. We all have to see it and we all have to endure it. It is as some would say a part of life. It is hard to imagine a society without it, and yet there is coming a day where death will be no more. He’s going down!
Our text gives comfort and hope for a better future. For those who have suffered a loss of a loved one it gives courage to us. Keep on going, for one day if we and our loved ones are saved, we will see our loved ones again and we will never say good-by to them again because death is going down.
Death will finally be a thing of the past. What a wonderful thought. No more funerals or funeral homes. No more cemeteries. No more standing bedside helplessly only to watch our loved ones pass away. No more good-byes and no more dying from disease or old age. I can’t wait. He’s going down!
Our Lord Jesus Christ defeated death when he died on an old rugged cross and was buried. Three days later (Praise the Lord!) he came up form the dead on his own power. Death couldn’t keep him down.
Those that get saved are placed in Jesus and because he lives we can live too. He died and we will die but we won’t stay dead and we won’t stay down. One day we will come up from the dead just like he did. Death will never happen to us again for the scripture says that death will be swallowed up in victory thru Jesus Christ our Lord. He’s going down!
Our text is one promise alone which should be enough for those who are not saved to get saved. Who doesn’t want death to pass away?
May God hasten the day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes back to destroy our enemies including the last enemy to fall—death.
He’s going down!
