“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that he will not hear” Isaiah 59:2

Our sins separate us from God. It is our sins that have caused the separation.

Romans 3:23 tells us that, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. Nobody can say that he has never sinned. We are all sinners who are in need of salvation. I John 1:8 says, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us”.

“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” I John 1:10, God is right when he tells us that we have all sinned.

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord”. This is referring to spiritual death, for those who are lost there will be a separation from God in eternity. God is in heaven, and all those who experience this spiritual death are separated from God so they cannot go to heaven. There is only one place for them to go – hell.

Spiritual Death is a separation from God. When we die, there is a separation between our body and our soul. Our body will return to the dust, but our spirit is separated from our dead body and will go back to God, who gave it to us. We are told in Ecclesiastes 12:7, “Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it”.

Revelation 21:8 tells us that, “the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”
