What verses did you think of immediately? Romans 6:23? How about Genesis 3?
Actually I thought about these verses:
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death … Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years … Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire …But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
(Rev.2:11; 20:6; 20:14-15; 21:8)
The wages of sin is the death of death in the death of Christ (Romans 6:23)! Christ died once for ALL (Romans 6:10) and ALL need to die and make alive in Christ (1. Corinthians 15:22)! May that happen today or tomorrow, or even when death and Hades will be thrown into the lake of fire (the second death), but spiritual (and even bodily) death must be the price for sin indeed (Romans 7:9)!
Thanks for bringing these verses to light for us. More hope from the Word of God!
