The first curse that came onto man after breaking God’s law was the curse of death. It was never in God’s plan for man to die. However, Genesis. 2:16-17 clearly states that if Adam trespassed God’s commandment not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, that he would surely die. When Adam ate, spiritual death was instantaneous. Physical death became progressive and imminent. Death is an enemy, and is the last enemy that will be destroyed (I Corinthians 15:20-24). But as a child of God, you can choose when you die. You are no longer a victim because Christ has redeemed you from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13-14) and abolished the power of death over you (Hebrews 2:9-15).
