Who Will Experience ‘The Second Death’?

Death vs Everlasting Life;

  • Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
  • Daniel 12:2  And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
  • Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
  • John 5:28-29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • Hosea 13:14; I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues;
  • 1 Corinthians 15:26; The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
  • 1 Corinthians 15:55; O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The ‘Second Death’ is mentioned in the Bible four times:

  1. Revelation 2:11 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
  4. 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.

How Christians Overcome the Second Death:

John 3:16 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.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 5:24 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 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 11:25; Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Romans 6: 23; For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10: 9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

Enoch and Elijah did not experience death. Many Christians won’t as well:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
