What is the Second Death?

You must have a second birth before you can have a second death. In the first death, we all died with Adam and were separated from the God of heaven. 3 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 3:3

When you are born again, your eyes are opened to the realm of God, and you can see spiritual things and the kingdom of God. [HEAVEN]

14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; Heb 2:14

The second death will be the same!

Do you believe in sin, sickness and death, then you have entered the second death and believe the god of this world instead of the God of heaven. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Cor 15:21-22

In Adam, all die [FIRST DEATH]

There were two trees in the garden and we know the fruit from the tree of life is the word of God. It stands to reason that the fruit from the other tree is the word of satan. The only thing Adam did wrong was believe the word of the god of this world [SATAN] instead of the word of God of heaven. [OUR FATHER 'elohiym]

Donít we do the same thing when Satan the god of this world and our flesh says that we are sick and we believe him instead of the word of God [CHRIST WHO IS THE WORD OF GOD] which says we were healed by his stripes.

Adam just looked at his flesh and saw he had no clothes on and tried to clothe himself with leaves instead of the word of God. God clothed him with the lamb of the world [CHRIST]

6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. Gen 15:6 Had Adam believe God, then he would have been clothed with the righteousness of God.

I wasnít that he disobeyed God, he just didnít believe God even as we all do today. When God says that we are healed and we say we are sick, then we do the same as Adam and the god of this world becomes our father and we stay in the fallen state. [SIN, SICKNESS, AND DEATH]

In Christ all are made alive
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. Rev 21:8

Did you notice that the fearful and unbelieving was at the top of the list that lead us into the second death.

Many have entered the second death because they believe their flesh and the god of this world instead of their Spirit [THE WORD OF GOD]

When Moses needed water the second time, he couldnít go back to the cross and smite the rock the second time.

God told him to speak to the rock second time and the living water will flow out.

Remember when you went to the cross and the living water of revelation flowed out of your belly

I would read three verses of the bible and tears would swell in my eyes because of the truth that I read there.

God is not one who can lie, so if he tells you to speak to the rock, then you will receive revelation knowledge again and the rivers of living water will flow out of your belly.

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:38

We are living in the day of revelation and if you cannot receive the revelation that is being poured out, then you have entered the second death and have to speak to the rock for the living water and the Lord will pour it out freely to all those who ask. If we stay in this fallen state, then we will miss the blessings of living and reigning for this thousand year reign with Christ.

Blessings to all
