Death is a sad moment that make us mourn whenever the loved one dies, but really what is death and how is it originated?
Death means the physical body becomes ready for funeral and the end of life. Death happens due to the failure of the function of body organs. Death happens once the Spirit departs from the body. However, death doesn’t only mean the body is ready for funeral.
In the garden of Eden, the Lord God said in Genesis 2:17
“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the DAY that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
As the Lord God said, Adam ate the forbidden fruit and disobeyed, and in the same DAY he died, his Spirit that’s the Breadth of Life breathed by the Lord God was departed from his physical body.
James 2:26 says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead.”
The DAY Adam ate the forbidden fruit his body was died because of the fact that his body become without the Spirit of God, thus he died the same day.
However, his body was not ready the same day for funeral but alive because of the fact that the Spirit of Evil arrived into his body, and he lived 930 years. So, Adam passed from Eternal life unto Death.
Whoever may be, being a sinner is dead from the Eye’s of God. What indwells men is literally demon, and that’s why the Messiah was saying in Mark 7:15
“there is nothing from without the man, that going into him can defile him; but the things which proceed out of the man are those that defile the man”.
Therefore, when the Spirit of Evil removed from the physical body then that’s what death is all about and instead, the Holy Spirit might be Replaced into the physical body is called the Resurrection.
Resurrection doesn’t only mean at the end of the world, there shall be a Resurrection of the dead but it’s also a Reception of the Holy Spirit into the physical body as the Messiah said in 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”.
Early Apostles were like Adam but passed from death unto Eternal life.
