May 15


God will wipe away every tear . . . ; there shall be no more death,
nor sorrow. . . . For the former things have passed away.

He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; for the Lord has spoken. § Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. § The inhabitant will not say, “I am sick”; the people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity. § The voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying. § Sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O Death, I will be your plagues! O Grave, I will be your destruction! § The last enemy that will be destroyed is death… Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

The things which are not seen are eternal.

Rev. 21:4; Isa. 25:8; 60:20; 33:24; 65:19; 35:10;
Hos. 13:14; 1 Cor. 15:26, 54; 2 Cor. 4:18


[God] raised us up together . . . in Christ Jesus.

Do not be afraid; … I am He who lives. § Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am. We are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. § He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. § You are complete in Him, who is the head.

Inasmuch . . . as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

This corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

Eph. 2:6; Rev. 1:17–18; John 17:24; Eph. 5:30;
Col. 1:18; 2:10; Heb. 2:14–15; 1 Cor. 15:53–54
