Robert Traill (The Throne of Grace), Works 1:215:

That by which death stings men, is sin unpardoned, and God’s holy law binding sin and wrath on their persons. Victory over both sin and the law comes by Jesus Christ. When this victor, and victory in Christ, is seen by a believer, death is defied and despised, as a stingless overcome thing. Much and strong faith is needful to enable a man to play on the hole of this asp. Christ reveals himself to John almost dead with fear, Rev. 1:17, 18, Fear not; I have the keys of hell and of death. “Behold them in my hand, and behold me as the lord of them.” Should a believer in Jesus fear any thing that Christ hath the power of? The bitterness of death is past to all believers, by Christ’s death, and victory over it. And if their faith was strong, their fears would be small.
