God loves you. “ The Lamb, who was killed before the origin of the world, is a man who has received support, splendor, wisdom, power, refinement, whole month, respect, faith and silt। Let him be glorified forever. ”Now came true Amen। In this world you have received everything but so far Jesus has not believed in Christ, you are the saddest and most righteous man ! The poorest people on earth are not without money but without Jesus Amen ! Your first need and need is the forgiveness of eternal security sins, salvation and eternal life – “ Behold, the Lamb of God who has raised the sin of the world’।And he is atonement for our sins, and not only for us, but also for the sins of the whole world। The only Creator God – Ekmatra Caste Man – Ekkatra Blood Red – Ekkatra Problem Sin – Ekkatra Solution Jesus Christ Do you know that there is eternal life even after the deer only God loves you ! Because God loved the world so much that he gave it to his only born Son – No one who believes in him is unhappy, But he may have eternal life, but God reveals his love for us: Christ died for us when we were sinners। Because you are saved by grace by faith; And it is not from you, it is God’s donation; He who is waking up to my door every day hears me waiting for the pillars of my doors, Blessed is that man। But God reveals his love for us: Christ died for us, while we are sinners। But in all these things we are even more than the winners by him, who loved us। Because I have been completely unarmed, neither death nor life, nor angels, neither the princes, nor the rights, nor the things that come from now, nor the things that come later, neither the heights, nor the deep, Neither any other creation can separate us from the love of God in our Lord Christ Jesus। Love is in this – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son to be atone for our sins। For God made sin for us, who did not know that we would be the righteousness of God। Jesus said to him: “ Bato, truth and life are me; No one comes to the Father except me. ” Your word is a light for my feet, and a light for my way। I cried before Miramire fell bright; I hope in your word। My eyes are open at night’s guard to meditate on your word। And call me on the day of the storm; I will deliver you, and you will raise me। He cures those with broken hearts and binds them to the ointment of their injuries। You will be in me and ask for whatever you want if my words are in you, and that will be done for you।

O Death, Where is Thy Sting?O Grave, Where i

 O Grave, Where is Thy Victory?

  • The Sting of Death is Sin – We find this statement in Eze 18:4, “Beholdall souls are mineas the soul of the fatherso also the soul of the son is minethe soul that sinnethit shall die”. Jam 1:15 also expresses the same idea as it pinpoints the origin and progression of all sin: “Then when lust hath conceivedit bringeth forth sinand sinwhen it is finishedbringeth forth death”. So we read in 1 Cor 15:56 that “the sting of death is sin …”. The reason this is so is because, sin, by biblical definition, is the transgression of Gods Law – THE LAW OF GODWHICH IS THE HOLY BIBLE, as stated in 1 John 3:4, an exceedingly relevant verse. And how important is Gods Law? In Mat 5:18 we read, “For verily I say unto youTill heaven and earth passone jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the lawtill all be fulfilled”. You and I are fully aware that when we break one of the laws of our land there will be consequences, and in the case of sin the consequences are eternal and breaking one of God’s law makes us guilty of breaking all (Jam 2:10). In these verses, as well as many others in the Bible, we notice that God is linking death to sin. God had set up a test for Man in the Garden of Eden, which Man failed. God had declared that if Man were to sin, he would have to die. The death that God was talking about was not only physical death (which did result, however, as the evidence of man’s sin) – but something far worse, something unimaginable – eternal “second death” in Hell: And fear not them which kill the bodybut are not able to kill the soulbut rather fear him [Godwhich is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Mat 10:28). We cannot begin to understand the depth of our sin and how our rebellion is such an affront to God Almighty, our Creator. Furthermore, we find this jarring truth in Rom 6:23, “For the wages of sin is [eternal] deathbut the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”. May God have mercy on us as we cry to Him to deliver us from the just punishment we deserve.

Rom 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man [speaking of Adamsin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned …”

1 John 3:4 “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

Jam 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one pointhe is guilty of all.”

1 Cor 15:5457 “… Death is swallowed up in victoryO deathwhere is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

  • The Law of the Spirit of Life and the Law of Sin and Death – What is the Law? as we look in the Bible to discover the answer to this question, we find statements that can appear to be contradictory unless we harmonize them with what the whole Bible teaches to fully comprehend what God has in view. For instance, in Rom 8:2, it would seem that this verse is talking about two laws: “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” and “the law of sin and death”. Many people erroneously think that the Ten Commandments are the Law. While they are certainly part of the Law, they are by no means the whole Law. What is the Law that Adam broke catapulting this world into sin and death? We have just seen sin, by biblical definition, is the transgression of Gods Law. So, what is the Law then? It is actually the entire Bible. An outstanding example of this is Psalm 119, where the excellency of the Bible is highlighted. It is the longest Psalm (and the longest chapter in the Bible), and throughout its 176 verses all of Gods Word is described with the following terms (sometimes in both the singular and plural forms): statutesjudgmentstestimoniescommandmentspreceptslawword, and ordinances. There is another crucial point that cannot be overlooked: In Eph 6:17 the Bible is referred to as, “the sword of the Spiritwhich is the word of God”. More evidence of this fact is revealed in Rev 1:16 as it portrays the Lord Jesus in majestic splendor and glory coming as the Judge and “out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword”. This helps to clarify the problem of the “two laws” which I mentioned previously in Rom 8:2. In essence the “Law”, or the “book of the Law”, refers to the whole Bible – the “sword of the Spirit”. The two edges of that “sword” signify its roles of either inflicting eternal damnation by the law of sin and death, or providing eternal life by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. These are the two main messages of the Gospel of Christ. Also it is important to recognize that the phrases “in the flesh” and “under the law” refer to one who is unsaved. On the other hand, the phrases “in the spirit” and “under grace” are speaking about one who is saved and set free by “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” from “the law of sin and death”.

Mat 4:4 “… It is writtenMan shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

Heb 4:12 “For the word of God is quick [or living] and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Rev 1:16 “And he [Lord Jesus as Judge] had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.”

Rom 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

  • The Strength of Sin is the Law – Sin, as we have just learned, is the transgression of the Law. Our problem with sin, and its well-deserved consequence – punishment in Hell forevermore – has to do with the fact man – though sinful – are nonetheless accountable to God for their sin, since they were created in the image of God. Also it has to do with the fact that we are married to the Law of God (Rom 7:16). We read in 1 Cor 15:56, “The sting of death is sinand the strength of sin is the law”. One is “under the law” or “sold under sin” according to Rom 3:21. In other words, the Bibleas the Law of God , is our enemy because we have disobeyed it, and it stands to accuse us and hold us liable to the consequences of having broken it: “… the law worketh wrath (Rom 4:15a). Make no mistake about it God will prosecute sinners to the full extent of the law – which is eternal damnation in HellNum 32:23 warns “… ye have sinned against the LORDand be sure your sin will find you out”. There is no alternative or plea-bargaining available – the Law has to be upheld by the Judge, if He is indeed righteous Ruler. God is absolutely just and righteous both in character and in everything He does. In Deu 33:2 we find this portrait of Gods Law, the Bible: “… he [The LORDcame with ten thousands of saintsfrom his right hand went a fiery law for them”. This amazing declaration gives us a glimpse of how binding and authoritative the Bible is. Notice how it is called a “fiery law”, and “fire” has everything to do with the justice and judgment of God, as stated in Deu 4:24, “For the LORD thy God is a consuming fireeven a jealous God”. Jer 23:29 underscores this as well: “Is not my word like as a firesaith the LORDand like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?”. Not one human being will escape their rendezvous with the Judge – unless they first have a Savior. We know of course from Isa 45:21, “… there is no God else beside mea just God and a Saviourthere is none beside me”. Rom 2:56 describes how the accumulation of sin in a person’s life will serve as the evidence for why God has to punish each person individually. Rom 2:1113 declares: “… not the hearers of the law are just before Godbut the doers of the law shall be justified…”. The “doers of the law” are those whom God saves, in other words, those who are set free by “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” from “the law of sin and death”. In fact, Rom 4:15a says, “Because the law worketh wrathfor where no law isthere is no transgression”. Furthermore we understand from Rom 7:7, “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbidNayI had not known sinbut by the lawfor I had not known lustexcept the law had saidThou shalt not covet”. So, the reason the Law (which is the whole Bible) is called “the strength [powerof sin” is because it exposes our sin and guilt before God. Moreover, because “by the law is the knowledge of sin”, it drives Gods elect to see their overwhelming need for a Savior, as Gal 3:24 explains: “… Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ …”. Also it is important to recognize that the phrases “carnally minded” and “the hearers of the law” refer to one who is unsaved. On the other hand, the phrases “spiritually minded” and “the doers of the law” are speaking about one who is saved.

Rom 2:56 “But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of GodWho will render to every man according to his deeds …”.

1 Cor 15:5457 “… Death is swallowed up in victoryO deathwhere is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Rom 7:5, 14 “For when we were in the fleshthe motions of sins, which were by the lawdid work in our members [our bodyto bring forth fruit unto death. 14For we know that the law is spiritualbut I am carnalsold under sin.”

Rom 8:69 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against Godfor it is not subject to the law of Godneither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.”

Rom 2:1113 “For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified …)”

Rom 3:1920 “Now we know that what things soever the law saithit saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”

Gal 3:2224 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 24Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is comewe are no longer under a schoolmaster.”

  • Death is Swallowed Up in Victory – We find these words of comfort, which reflect the hope of the Resurrection in Christ in Isa 25:8, “He will swallow up death in victoryand the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all facesand the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earthfor the LORD hath spoken it”. The unfolding of God’s wondrous salvation plan is beautifully illustrated in Gal 4:47. God is indeed to be praised for defeating sinspiritual death, and Hell, as 1 Cor 15:5457 so magnificently reveals. Not only Christ redeemed us from the “curse of the law” but has also fulfilled the law for us as Rom 5:19 declares, thus ending “enmity”, or hatred, that existed between man and God because of mans sin (Eph 2:1417). The Greek word for “swallowed up (katapinó 2666)” is translated as “drowned” in Heb 11:29, recounting God’s miraculous deliverance of the Israelites from the pursuing Egyptian forces at the Red Sea: “By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry landwhich the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned [or swallowed up]”. The same Greek word is also used in 2 Cor 5:4 – a parallel account to 1 Cor 15 – and relates the believers desire to be rid of their sin-cursed bodies and to receive their glorified spiritual bodies on the Last Day: “For we that are in this tabernacle do groanbeing burdenednot for that we would be unclothedbut clothed uponthat mortality might be swallowed up of life”. The resurrection of the dead will occur on the Last Day, or Judgment Day, which coincides with the end of this world, the end of time, and the ushering in of eternity for both the saved and the unsavedIsa 14:11, which depicts Satans downfall, declares the ultimate destiny of Satan and all who are unsaved in Hell: “Thy pomp is brought down to the graveand the noise of thy violsthe worm is spread under theeand the worms cover thee”. The born-again Christian has “boldness in the day of judgment” because his salvation is totally dependent on the work and faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. Wonderfully, he can rejoice in what 2 Tim 1:910 proclaims: “Who hath saved usand called us with an holy callingnot according to our worksbut according to his own purpose and gracewhich was given us in Christ Jesus before the world beganBut is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christwho hath abolished deathand hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel …”

Rom 5:19 “For as by one mans [Adamdisobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one [Christshall many be made righteous.”

1 Cor 15:2022 “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21For since by man [Adamcame deathby man [Christcame also the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all dieeven so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

Gal 4:47 “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the lawTo redeem them that were under the lawthat we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”

Eph 2:1417 “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmityeven the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peaceAnd that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the crosshaving slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.”

1 Cor 15:5457 “… Death is swallowed up (katapinó 2666) in victoryO deathwhere is thy stingO gravewhere is thy victoryThe sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

  • Thanks be to God, which Giveth us the Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ – Thanks be to God! It is worth noting that the Greek word for “thanks (charis 5485)” is translated over 80% of the time as “grace (charis)”. In other words, it is Gods grace that provides salvation for every child of God through the work and the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 20:32). We must never forget the enormous price that the Lord Jesus had to pay to secure salvation for each Christian, as 2 Cor 8:9 declares: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christthatthough he was richyet for your sakes he became poorthat ye through his poverty might be rich”. In reality, the Lord Jesus voluntarily became sin; and, consequently, He was guilty of us violating the Laws of the entire Bible and had to endure the penalty of eternal Hell to obtain our eternal forgiveness, which is demanded by the Law of God – the Bible (2 Cor 5:21). Bear in mind that the “death” spoken of in this quotation is eternal damnation. The only person who has actually suffered the rigors of Hell is the Lord Jesus, as Mat 12:40 portrays: “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whales bellyso shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”. The phrase “heart of the earth” is a reference to eternal Hell.

1 Cor 15:5457 “… Death is swallowed up in victoryO deathwhere is thy stingO gravewhere is thy victoryThe sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks (charis 5485) be to Godwhich giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Eph 1:67 “To the praise of the glory of his gracewherein he hath made us accepted in the belovedIn whom we have redemption through his bloodthe forgiveness of sinsaccording to the riches of his grace.”

Heb 2:9 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”

Rev 20:1115 “And I saw a great white throneand him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12And I saw the deadsmall and greatstand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the booksaccording to their works. 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fireThis is the second death. 15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Rev 20:6 “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection [born again] : on such the second death hath no powerbut they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years [for eternity].

For he that findeth me shall find life, and shall receive mercy from the Lord. But he that sinneth against me, harmeth his own soul; All those who hate me love death.’ Proverb. 8:35-36 But God shows his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 He committed no sin, nor was any guile found in his mouth; He did not rebuke in return; He did not threaten when he suffered, but committed himself to the righteous judge. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we might die to sins and live to righteousness; By His stripes you were healed. 1 st. Proverb. 8:35-36 Nor is salvation in any other; For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, even those who despise him; And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen! Revelation 1:7 And he was clothed in blood; And his name is called ‘Word of God’. Revelation 19:13 “And behold, I come quickly; And I have my reward to give to every man according to his work. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13 Note: Today people don’t even have time to go to heaven. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life.
