God did not make Death
13 For God did not make Death, he takes no pleasure in destroying the living. Eze 18, 32.
14 To exist — for this he created all things; the creatures of the world have health in them, in them is no fatal poison, and Hades has no power over the world: Gen 1, 31. Srh 39, 21.
23 For God created human beings to be immortal, he made them as an image of his own nature; Gen 1, 27. Srh 17, 1-3.
24 Death came into the world only through the Devil's envy, as those who belong to him find to their cost. Gen 3, 1-2.
Enslaved through the fear of death
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Luk 1:74. Rom 8:15.
Man became dust and shall return unto dust
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Gen 4, 12. Gen 5, 29.
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Psa 128, 2. Ecc 12, 7.
7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Psa 146, 4.
In Christ shall all be made alive
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death (1Co.15:26).

23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. 1Th 4, 15-16.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. Dan 7, 14. Mat 28, 18. 1Ti 6, 15.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. Psa 110, 1. Act 2, 34. Heb 1, 13.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. Rev 20, 14.
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under [him, it is] manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. Psa 8, 6. Heb 2, 8.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. 1Co 11, 3.
By destroying death, Christ our God has granted us eternal Life.
Christ is risen from the dead, Trampling down death by death.
Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
“And the Spirit and the bride say,
… And whosoever will, let him
take the water of life freely.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Isa 55, 1. Jhn 7, 37. Rev 21, 6.

They did not love their lives to the death.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, Dan 10, 13. Dan 12, 1.
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Luk 10, 18.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Zec 3, 1.

6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 2Co 4, 4. Col 1, 15.
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: Psa 22, 6. Isa 49, 6. Mat 20, 28.
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Mat/ 26, 39. Heb 2, 17.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: Mat 28, 18. Heb 1, 4.
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; Isa 45, 23. Rom 14, 11. Rev 5, 14.
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Jhn 13, 13. 1Co 8, 6.
