Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:26


15:26 The last enemy that is destroyed is death - Namely, after Satan, #Heb 2:14|, and sin, #1Cor 15:56|, are destroyed. In the same order they prevailed. Satan brought in sin, and sin brought forth death. And Christ, when he of old engaged with these enemies, first conquered Satan, then sin, in his death; and, lastly, death, in his resurrection. In the same order he delivers all the faithful from them, yea, and destroys these enemies themselves. Death he so destroys that it shall be no more; sin and Satan, so that they shall no more hurt his people.

    THIS BIBLE PASSAGE REALLY SPOKE TO MY HEART. ESPECIALLY VERSE 58 WHICH says " THEREFORE MY BELOVED BRETHREN, BE YE STEDFAST, UNMOVABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD, FOR AS MUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YOUR LABOUR IS NOT IN VAIN IN THE LORD". THAT CHRIST WILL INCREASE OUR FAITH AND THAT BY DOING HIS WILL NOT ONLY BE SAFE, ALSO JOYOUS AND TRIUMPHANT. PRAISE BE TO THE KING OF GLORY AMEN.

    That means that we have the victory through conquering

    Jesus defeated sin which leads to spiritual and natural death at the cross. Now they do not have dominion over us because I am no longer under the law but under grace
  • Nicholas Palmer
    Baptism is by works....undermining the Cross for all works have been nailed to it including the law which gives sin power...faith plus nothing..
