I. He Abolished Death (2 Timothy 1:10)

In 2 Timothy 1:10, we learn that Jesus Christ abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. His resurrection demonstrated His power over death and offered us the gift of eternal life. Through faith in Christ, death no longer holds us in its grip.

II. The Last Enemy to Be Destroyed: Death (1 Corinthians 15:25-26)

The Apostle Paul proclaims in 1 Corinthians 15:25-26 that Jesus must reign until He has put all enemies under His feet, and the last enemy to be destroyed is death. Through His victory over death, Jesus Christ conquered the ultimate enemy that once separated us from God's presence.

III. Christ's Death Destroyed the Power of Death (Hebrews 2:14-15)

In Hebrews 2:14-15, we are reminded that Jesus partook of flesh and blood to render powerless the one who had the power of death, the devil. Through His death and resurrection, Jesus broke the chains of death's hold on humanity, setting us free from the fear of its sting.

IV. The Lake of Fire Will Swallow Up Death (Revelation 20:13-15)

V. There Shall Be No More Death (Revelation 21:4)

Revelation 21:4 offers a glimpse of the new heaven and new earth, where God will wipe away every tear, and there shall be no more death. In this new creation, death will be no more, and the redeemed will live eternally in God's presence.

VI. Those Who Die in Christ Will Be Raised Incorruptible (1 Corinthians 15:51,53)

In 1 Corinthians 15:51 and 53, Paul reveals a mystery: those who die in Christ will be raised incorruptible. Through Christ's resurrection, we have hope for our own resurrection and eternal life in His presence.

Victory over death  Involves The Resurrection

I. Jesus Promised the Resurrection (John 5:28-29)

In John 5:28-29, Jesus Himself assures us that a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice and come out. Those who have done good will rise to eternal life, while those who have done evil will rise to be condemned. Jesus' promise of resurrection offers hope and assurance that death is not the end, but the gateway to eternal life.

II. Jesus Is the Resurrection (John 11:25)

In John 11:25, Jesus proclaims, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die." Through this profound statement, Jesus declares Himself as the source of resurrection and eternal life. Believing in Him grants us victory over death, knowing that even though our physical bodies may perish, our spirits will live on in Him.

III. He That Raised Up Jesus Shall Raise Us (2 Corinthians 4:14)

In 2 Corinthians 4:14, Paul affirms that God, who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead, will also raise us with Jesus and present us with Him. Our resurrection is intimately connected with Christ's resurrection. Just as Jesus triumphed over death, so too will we, as believers in Him, experience victory over death through resurrection.
