14Seeing, then, the children have partaken of flesh and blood, he himself also in like manner did take part of the same, that through death he might destroy him having the power of death -- that is, the devil

Pretty explosive verse of scripture !!!!!!!!

That through death He destroyed him who had the power of death.

What do you believe is the power of death that the devil had power over ?

I will go with the fear of it (verse 15)

It is an amazing thing. As soon as I accepted Christ as my Lord and saviour, He gave me peace over things like death. Once you believe in God he gives you assurance of eternal life.

Praise the Lord.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Very nice.

So what is the power of death that the devil had that Jesus destroyed ?

I just want to throw this one in for good measure

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Col 2:15

Does this mean the disarmed will become armed again some time in the future ?

Jesus died, and rose again, and teached that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life. I told you earlier that I have peace about death. Why? Because I have accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and He promises that if you do that, then you will have everlasting life. So, I do not fear death, and it has no power over me. Unbelievers fear death, but for believers this fear was removed by Jesus, so it is fair to say he took the weapon of fear away from Satan. Believe, and you will find peace in these matters.

Finn you have told me nowt .I asked "What do you believe is the power of death that the devil had power over ?.

I never asked how do you become a christian , or if you had peace about death , i did not even ask if death had power over you.

Jesus death and resurrection set us free from the fear of death because death has been defeated.

Thanks ILNC.

Without Jesus there is no hope for anyone who dies and that is pretty fearful. But Jesus sets us free from this fear.
