There were many times recorded in the New Testament where Jesus’ life was threatened. Paul also was in danger many times and even David in the Old Testament lived with the threat of Saul taking his life. These near-death incidents highlight to us that no one can touch us without God’s permission. We will not die until God is ready to take us home. Those who have taken the attitude, God is loving but not powerful are greatly mistaken.
