The devil likes death. Jesus doesn’t. He doesn’t want you or anything else to die.If you want proof, consider these words, the shortest verse in the Bible.
Jesus wept. (John 11:35)
If Jesus liked death there would be no need for tears, no sorrow. But Jesus loves His friend Lazarus, not death.
Jesus doesn’t like death because death is bad. This might seem too simple a point, but every direction you turn people are telling us that death is something we have to come to grips with, something we have to accept; “It’s part of life.” No. Death is bad, and if Jesus doesn’t like it, then you don’t have to like it either. You don’t have to get over it, accept it, come to terms with death, quit being sad, or whatever. Jesus doesn’t.
He doesn’t like death and He does something about it. He Himself dies the death that He despises to set us free from the fear of death (Hebrews 2:14). Our Jesus has so little live for death that He treats death like the enemy and destroys it.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (1 Corinthians 15:26)
