“The one who sins is the one who will die.” Why?

“The one who sins is the one who will die.” Ezekiel 18:20 (NIV) WHY?

Death entered the human race via federal headship as our father, Adam, chose to compromise with evil in direct rebellion to Elohim’s warning that to do so would result in death of mind, body, soul. On the day that Adam sinned against the sovereignty of Elohim, both Adam and his wife died spiritually (physiological death followed); in other words, a spiritual chasm manifest between man and Elohim where formerly man existed in perfect intimacy, unity, with His Creator.

As a result of Adam’s rebellion, the human genome, which was created flawless and eternal, suffered corruption and now suffers genomic degradation, decay and ultimately death. The human genome, as a result of Adam’s rejection of Elohim’s sovereignty, became subject to the 2nd-Law of Thermodynamics and the resultant is death of the body; this, actually being a form of mercy by Elohim as unconscionable horror would have manifest in a body of sinful flesh subject to decay that never dies.

Fortunately, our omniscient and omnipotent Creator foreknew mankind’s propensity toward narcissism and ordained the Gospel of Jesus Christ “before Time began” (2 Timothy 1:8-10) as a battle strategy “to destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b), works of evil which would manifest through humanity via sin e.g. mankind’s rejection of Elohim’s sovereignty, authority, dominion; for all intents and purposes, the coup d’état initiated by Satan in the Kingdom was transferred to the Realm of Time, placed upon this Earth created for that very purpose as the Earth is the temporary repository, the battle ground, where Elohim is dealing with sin via self-less love displayed by Jesus at Golgotha while restoring and preparing His Kingdom for the New Jerusalem where paradise lost will be paradise restored.

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.
