The second death in the Book of Revelation.
There is a third type of death in Scripture that is different from spiritual death and physical death. This can be known as eternal death, or the second death. For the thousands of people we know and hear that teach the bible very few will ever touch on the second death.
Psalm 1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Psalm 1;5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
In the Book of Revelation we read.
Revelation 2:11 11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. KJV
Unless spiritual death is reversed in this life, the result will be eternal death. This is unending separation between God and all who reject him through his son Jesus.
Matthew 8:21-23 21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. (Note! By this we know people who don't know the Son of God are dead.) He called him Lord and he was a disciple. Where will his dead father and the dead who buried him be at the final judgement?
The final judgement for dead unbelivers
Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Book of Life is mentioned seven times in the book of Revelation
( Revelation 3:5,13:8, 17:8, 20:12,15, 21:27, 22:19 ).
1 Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
2 Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
3 Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
4 Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
5 Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell (GRAVE) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
6 Revelation 21:27And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Believers are not affected by the second death.
Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Lake Of Fire is the second death.The final judgment, or the lake of fire, is the time when the second death occurs.
Read about the six principles of the doctrines of Christ. Eternal judgments Hebrews 6:1-2 http://keepinminddavedill.blogspot.com/2006/12/six-principles-or-oracles-of-god-is_10.html A Long study!!
Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell (Grave) delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. KJV
2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels (Sons of God Seths seed and cains) that sinned, but cast them down to hell, (Grave) and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
Revelation 20:14). And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. KJV
Then death and Hades (Grave) were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. The Beast and false prophet are in a lake of fire fighting each other./ a lake of fire is not the same as the second death lake of fire. >It is war on earth.
The second death is reserved for unbelievers.
Those who experience this death are all those whose names are not found written in the Book of Life.
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The City new Jerusalem
Revelation 21:27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life. NIV
Eternal death, or the second death, is the ultimate form of separation. If a person dies in a state of spiritual death, they enter eternity separated from God. This is the second death. Once a person has experienced the "second death" there is no hope for them, it is irreversible. God is an all comsuming fire.
At the end of the one thousand years the dead stand before God. ("dead.")
Revelation 20;12-15 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell (Grave) were cast into the lake of fire.(Notice>>) This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. KJV = ( Is WHAT? ) > Death not Eternal life!!) (Get mad I don;t care!!)
Death is the one thing in life certain to occur. It is a one hundred per cent certainty.
Summary Physical death is the separation of the body from the spirit. Spiritual death, the way all of us are born, is the spiritual separation of each of us from God. Eternal death, or the second death, is the eternal separation of a person from God. There is no escape from the second death. It is the state of punishment. Every one not in the book of life, "Right")
It is where the last enemy is destroyed "Death"
1Corinthians 15:25-26 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. Where?
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
The bible also speaks of the grave and death having power over men alive or dead:
Matthew 10:28 (Jesus) And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Grave). Does this mean the soul can be destroyed in Hell? Yes>
(Psalm 49:14) "Like sheep are they laid in Sheol: Death feedeth on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their comeliness shall be for Sheol to consume, that there be no habitation for them."
Men of God before the flood in Noahs Day who married the sons of men.
(Rom 5:14) 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
2nd Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels (These were the Sons of God , Adams First son cain and his children to Noah) that sinned, but cast them down to hell, (Grave) and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; (note ! The last Judgemet, Not the first resurrection.
Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. (A son of God.) But he cain killed his brother Able. God drove cain away from the sons of God.
Genesis 5:4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: 3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: (A man of faith.)
Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.
Real angels do not take a wife. they don't have children.
Luke 20:34-36 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: 35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: (Note here after the resurrection.) 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
Genesis 6:1-3 1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God (So called angels in 2ndPeter 2:4 ) saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Real angels do not take a wife.
These men of faith will receive a better resurrection. But they that married the sons of men death reigned over them. See Hebrews 11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
Jesus said something similar: (Note. What great love God he has for his souls.) A second death!
(Luke 20:38)." But he is not the God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him," KJV Is He your God today through Jesus our Lord??
