- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
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.
1Co 15:26 The last enemy . . . [is] death. See Re 20:12-14. The order there of closing events is the resurrection, the judgment, and the casting of Death and Hades (hades--the grave) into the lake of fire.

Its a comforting thought to know that our loved ones now asleep in mankinds's common grave have the prospect of resuming life in a wonderful new world free of all the present-day distress. And the fact that all those who have died are in Jehovah God infalliable memory.

Death is truly an enemy of all man. Everyone feels the bad effects of death and no one is exempt. This is an encouraging scripture for the future. We are assured that death is going to be destroyed. Imagine a world without death in it! I look forward to a time when this will happen.

the word of God says, the last shall bcom d 1st and d 1st shall bcom d last. death was the first to enter d earth after adam sinned, so it shall be d last to be destroyed. shalom.

By spirit, this last enemy had been destroyed already by Jesus on the cross but itíll be manifested at the end of everything, when those who are living with Jesus will be raised from death.
