The Keys of Death and Hades by D.J. LeMarrThis is an alternate cover edition for ISBN 1535211016
The story of Lucifers fall from heaven is well known. His wicked nature is legendary, surviving for many years, yet as all conflicts go there are two sides. These opposing sides each with their own reasons and justifications. Knowing only part of the story is worthless. The Keys of Death and Hades is the first book in the Epic of Lucifer. It is the story as it happened through the Wyrms eyes.
What could be so precious that Lucifer would dare defy the will of God, supreme creator of all, fail and try again?
Jesus Holds The Keys
Revelation 1:18 – The Keys of Death and Hades
THEN hell and death, terrible powers as they are, are not left to riot without government. Death is a land of darkness, as darkness itself, without any order, yet a sovereign eye surveyeth it, and a master hand holdeth its key. Hell also is a horrible region, where powers of evil and of terror hold their high court and dread assembly; but hell trembles at the presence of the Lord, and there is a throne higher than the throne of evil. Let us rejoice that nothing in heaven, or earth, or in places under the earth, is left to itself to engender anarchy. Everywhere, serene above the floods, the Lord sitteth King for ever and ever. No province of the universe is free from the divine rule. Things do not come by chance.
In 1 Peter 3: we read that, after His death on the cross, the Son of God preached to those who had been disobedient in Noah's time. He did this in order to offer them salvation: "For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit" 1 Peter 4: 6. Thus the saving activity of Christ also encompasses the dead. Just as the Son of God had turned to sinners while He walked on earth, so now He turned to those who had been disobedient to the will of God during their earthly lives. Ever since Jesus brought His sacrifice it has also been possible for the dead to attain redemption see 9.

Every one of us is called to die. Sometimes the call comes suddenly and without warning. Sometimes it comes with advance notification. But it comes to all of us.
