Genesis 2:17 KJV
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Genesis 3:4 KJV
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
God told Adam and Eve, that to disobey, and to partake of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, meant death.
And the death He spoke of was two-fold, one immediate, the other prolonged.
First Death: Was that of their spiritual relationship with God, and that relationship was broken, immediately.
Isaiah 59:2 KJV (The curse of sin.)
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.
Ephesians 2:1-10 NLT (Made Alive with Christ)
1 Once you were dead (spiritually) because of your disobedience and your many sins.
2 You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.
3 All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.
4 But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much,
5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us Life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)
6 For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.
7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of His grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all He has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.
8 God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is
A Gift From God.
9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.
Jeremiah 31:30 KJV
But every one shall die for his own iniquity..."
Ezekiel 18:4 KJV
Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
And secondly the death that is a result of sin, is physical death.
Genesis 3:19 KJV (The curse of sin.)
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Genesis 5:5 KJV
And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
Spiritually, Adam and Eve, died immediately, that is they were spiritually separated from God.
Later they also died physically.
Romans 5:12 KJV
Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
John 10:10 KJV
The thief (That old serpent-the devil) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am (Jesus) come that they might have Life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Romans 6:23 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but The Gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
John 3:3 KJV (Jesus speaks to Nicodemus.)
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 5:24 KJV
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting Life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto Life.
John 14:6 KJV
Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.
Hebrews 2:3 KJV
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by
The Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him;
Psalm 95:7,8 KJV
7 For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. To day if ye will hear His voice,
8 Harden not your heart..."
John 3:16-21 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of The Only Begotten Son Of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth The Light, neither cometh to The Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth Truth cometh to The Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
