Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:55

15:55 O death, where is thy sting? - Which once was full of hellish poison. O hades, the receptacle of separate souls, where is thy victory - Thou art now robbed of all thy spoils; all thy captives are set at liberty. Hades literally means the invisible world, and relates to the soul; death, to the body. The Greek words are found in the Septuagint translation of #Hosea 13:14|. #Isaiah 25:8|

    Thank God for the gift, Jesus Christ, who is our victory all day long everyday. Because victory only comes in the name of Jesus.

  • Jonathan
    I sometimes get carried away in the world and before I turned back to God it was easy to labour in a worldly way sinning and not loving my neighbour, we must always strive to labour in the Lord for most worldly labour is vanity where as labour in the Lord is everlasting. Think of the labour of love God did for us when he took up the cross for our sins, fasting for 40 days and nights healing and loving each and everyone of us hallelujah Praise the Lord in Jesus name Amen.
