THE DEATH OF DEATH
Someday soon, I will have officiated my last funeral, because in the kingdom, there will be no more death. Jesus conquered the grave so that we wouldn’t stay in ours. The Bible says that “God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it” (Acts 2:24). As a result, God will someday “wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev 21:4).
