death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire..."
Revelation 20:14 (NAS)
How important do you think it was for the Christians undergoing persecution
at the time that this revelation was written to know....that Jesus not only is
victorious over Satan, the beast and the false prophet...but also conquers
death and the place of the dead (Hades)?
When Jesus first spoke about establishing His church, He promised His
followers that the gates of death (the gates of Hades) would not prevail against
"...upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades shall
not overpower it." Matthew 16:18 (NAS)
Those that are in Jesus' church
would not be confined or prevailed upon by the gates
of death or Hades.
Are you a member of Jesus' church? Do you want to be in a relationship
with God where death and the place of death (Hades) will not prevail against you?
