Ezekiel 18:4: 4Behold, all souls are mine (God's); as the soul of the father, so also the soul

of the son is mine: THE SOUL THAT SINNETH, IT SHALL DIE. (Souls must not be
left in a sinful state, but must be cleansed else they will be ultimately and eternally be
separated from God. This is the SECOND DEATH.)

What Is The Second Death?

Revelation 20:11-14: 11Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it.
Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12And I saw the
dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book
was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had
done as recorded in the books. 13The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and
Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what
he had done. 14Then death (meaning people will no longer die) and Hades (the abode of the
dead who are awaiting the Great White Throne Judgment) were thrown into the lake of
fire. The lake of fire is the SECOND DEATH. 15If anyone's name was not found
written in the BOOK OF LIFE, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Revelation 21:6-8: 6He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the
spring of the water of life. 7He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God
and he will be my son. 8But the cowardly, THE UNBELIEVING, the vile, the
murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all
liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the SECOND
DEATH."

In Old Testament times blood was offered as a sacrifice in order to forgive sins because it
symbolically represented the fact that the penalty of the second death was fulfilled. God
did not stipulate that the particular person who sinned must shed his/her own blood, but
simply that blood had to be offered in payment for the penalty for sin. This of course
foreshadowed Christ's substitutionary death on the cross for sinners, so they would not
have to encounter the SECOND DEATH, and yet be able to say they paid the penalty.

Christ paid the ransom for Adam's infectious sin that was inflicted upon all of mankind
which began in the Garden of Eden.

Christ's death on the cross meant that man's spirit no longer had to remain in "darkness"
unless he so chose to continue in that manner. He no longer had to fear the SECOND
DEATH but could now enter into the light of God's favour and presence. (Note: whether
you do or whether you don’t choose Christ is a free will endeavour...you get to choose)

HOWEVER, for one to be absolved of sin and its consequences they must choose to be
BORN AGAIN! It's as simple as that.
