And it is so with the statement; …neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Rev. 21:4). For it is clearly stated that at his cross he loosed the pains of death! Acts 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. He destroyed the pains of spiritual death, as he was raised physically from the grave!
But with the greater realization that pain is a door into a spiritual experience which the soul can enter that is not provided in any other way. Psalm 119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
