THE ONE WHO HAD POWER OF DEATH WAS DESTROYED.

“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” Hebrews 2:14-15 KJV
When you play chess you understand that the game is a battle where the king, the queen, his lieutenants must win the war. And once the king is cornered and taken out you know the game is over. Chess masters can checkmate you before you go anywhere far in the game because once the king is cornered, the game has been won or lost. That is what our Lord Jesus did when He died and rose again. He destroyed Him who had the power of death, the devil.
Satan was in control of death. He could decide who dies or lives and at what time. That power was handed to him by Adam when he chose to listen to him instead of God. But our Lord and Savior came to destroy the works of the devil. He paralyzed the devil and his work on earth. Now we see our Lord Jesus in John’s revelation as one who holds the keys of hell and of death. To you child of God, Satan has no power to decide whether you live or die. That is now in the hands of our Lord Jesus. He is the one that must decide whether you live or die.
But the way, I know my Lord Jesus Christ, He only came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10). He did not come to kill His sheep but to give them life.
Only Jesus decides whether I live or die not Satan or his agents including sickness, diseases, accidents and other tragedies.
