"...there shall no longer be any death...the first things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4 NAS

The Last Enemy That Will Be Abolished

History, as we know it, will be culminated by the second coming of Jesus Christ. He will return and establish His kingdom on earth, overcome the Antichrist and the forces of evil, and bring justice and peace. That’s almost too much to fathom, isn’t it? The great enemy of God and man will be abolished. As is written in the Word of God, “Then comes the end…He must reign until He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death.”

What a great day it will be for all of Jesus’ followers! No more death. No more tears. No more grief. And no more separation from God and those we loved. When you say the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” you’re actually praying for Jesus to come again and establish His kingdom. To experience God’s will on earth as it is in heaven means no more death.

Jesus is the first to conquer death.

Then His followers will do the same.

What a day that will be!
