Message of the Day: Death Has No More Power Over Us

O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory
?” (1 Corinthians 15:55, NKJV)

This is also mentioned in Hosea 13:14, “I will ransom them from the power of the grave;
I will redeem them from death.
O Death, I will be your plagues!
O Grave, I will be your destruction!
Pity is hidden from My eyes.”

Paul interprets the word “punishment” in the Greek version of Hosea 13:14 as the rhyming Greek word “victory.” Jewish interpreters often linked different texts together on the basis of a common key word; “death” and “victory” occur in Paul’s paraphrase of Isaiah 25:8 and also in Hosea 13:4, which Paul may therefore apply to the resurrection as well. Although the latter passage is in the context of judgment, it does seem to say the same thing as Isaiah 25:8 unless read as a question.

Death will have no more power over us. Sin which makes death fearful and which uses the law to hold people in this state of fear, will be finally destroyed. There is no need for us to be doubtful concerning the coming resurrection. In fact, we will find that we have greater confidence and purpose in their Christian life and service as we understand the full meaning that the resurrection has for us. (1 Corinthians 15: 54-58).
