Why does Death continue to fight? Why does Satan continue to devise losing strategies?
The powers of darkness muster their forces against the Lord and against Me, his Christ.
“Let’s steal away his bride!” They think. “Let’s tear them out of his hands.”
Meanwhile, in heaven, the Lord laughs. He mocks their feeble plans.
He snorts at them in anger; the sound of his voice frightens even Death itself.
“I have vindicated Jesus as Lord and Christ,” He will say. “He is seated at my right hand.”
Let me remind you of what my Father decreed—He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. Just ask me, and I will make your enemies your footstool. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that you are Lord. Even the grave will be overcome in victory.”
Consider your next move, O Death. Last time, you only lost one of your captives. Be grateful it was just one. Next time, you will give them all up!
Make peace with the Son. Your judgment has been sealed. You, Death, will be swallowed up in victory! My brothers and sisters will dwell peacefully with me!
