Romans 7:13 (a) This describes the effect of wickedness and sinfulness upon the natural human heart and soul in the sight of GOD. Our sinful natures in our natural state send up sins, trespasses, transgressions, evils, wickedness and iniquities until they form a thick, dark cloud between the soul and GOD. (See Isaiah 44:22).

Romans 8:6 (a) Here we see the result of setting the mind on the things of earth so that it cannot receive nor comprehend the things of Heaven.

2 Corinthians 4:12 (a) Paul uses the word here in order to describe the crushing and destructive effects of persecution and prosecution of his own life.

1 John 3:14 (a) This describes the state of being unsaved and without eternal life. (See also under "DEAD").

Revelation 20:14 (a) The first death is the death of the body because of which the person cannot longer enjoy the earthly blessings of life. This second death is called by that name because the body and the soul have at the Great White Throne been brought before GOD for a final judgment. The individual is taken away from this short appearance in GOD's presence to be eternally and forever shut out of ever seeking GOD again.

Here are some references to death as used in the Scriptures:

Dead to sin - Romans 6:2

Dead with CHRIST - Romans 6:8.

Dead in sin - Ephesians 2:1

Dead to the world - Galatians 6:14.

Dead to GOD - Luke 9:60

Dead works - Hebrews 6:1.

Dead to this life - Romans 5:12 Hebrews 9:14.

Paul said "I die daily" 1 Corinthians 15:31. By this he was showing that he himself was fulfilling Romans 6:11. The meaning of all of this evidently is that the believer in CHRIST JESUS takes his place with CHRIST in His rejection from the world, and identifies himself with this rejected Lord. He does not now take part in, nor love, the things that this world offers to the unsaved.
