But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV)
The sting of death is sin; and the power of sin is the law: 1 Corinthians 15:56 (ASV)
Bible says the sting of death is sin and the power of sin is the law. Jesus took upon him the limitations of man, but he was never limited. He shared the human body and nature, but was without sin [1Jh. 3:5]. Death’s sting is sin, but no sin was found in him [Heb. 4:15]; so death had no power or claim over him. By his holy and righteous life, he defeated death. He won death even before he gave up. It takes sin for death to find operation in a soul; but in him was no sin.
The power of sin is the law, yet he fulfilled all the law [Rom. 10:3-4; Matt. 5:17-19]. To break a law is to break all; but never was he found breaking one jot of the law. So how would sin find a place in him? What claim would sin have over the son of God who alone had met the requirement of the law [Rom. 8:3-4]?
The sting of sin is death, so how would Jesus be afraid of death since he never had sin in him? He gave up the ghost in death without fear; yet death’s cold hand could not prevail over him – it had no ground to do so, no ground was found to sting our saviour and overcome him. Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting when our saviour visited thee?
Jesus went through tests of all sorts – Satan’s temptation, suffering’s trials, death’s sting- but he was found blameless, faultless, guiltless, harmless, not deserving of punishment and perfect in all. O glory for the wisdom of God. O the mystery of the God-Man, the Lord Jesus Christ. Only in the God-Man Jesus do we have hope of overcoming death, and in him we are sure of a daily victory. But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians15:57 (KJV). Halleluyah!
Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17-19 (DRV)
For we have not a high priest, who cannot have compassion on our infirmities: but one tempted in all things like as we are, without sin. Hebrews 4:15 (DRV)
And you know that he appeared to take away our sins, and in him there is no sin. 1 John 3:5 (DRV)
