How untimely and treacherous is "death our enemy"? Can't our dear friends escape succumbing to this plague? (1 Cor. 6:26 As the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing) Who caused death? John 8:44 says: "that one was a murderer when he began" Yes, Satan is a murderer...he lied to Eve prompting her to rebel against her creator...thus causing the death of all humans. (Ezekiel 28:13-15; Rom. 5:12) Jesus was the only person who did not fall to Satan...he was a perfect ransom. (John 3:16) He bought back what was lost....therefore "he" is judge of the world because Jehovah resurrected him. Jehovah approved of his sacrifice! (Rev. 5:1-5)

John 6:39 & 40 speaks of the Lord bringing the life back to those during the "Last Day"....he(Jesus) who conquered the Devil,(Matthew 4) has been given that authority by God(Jehovah is God's name-John 17:6) and he will soon act to bring back those who have died just like he did Lazarus, the widow's son...a dead man; and the daughter of a presiding officer of the synagogue.
