9 Knowing [eido] that [hoti] Christ [Christos] being raised [egeiro] from [ek] the dead [nekros] dieth [apothnesko] no more [ouketi]; death [thanatos] hath [kurieuo] no more [ouketi] dominion over [kurieuo] him [autos]. KJV-Interlinear
9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. ESV
This verse teaches us a lot of principles beyond the obvious. Once you have died to something, you are permanently separated from it. When you are raised back to life, having been separated from death, you cannot die again.
Jesus Christ is God. He holds the title Son of God. He went to the cross and died for the sins, in our behalf, of all of humanity.
There is only one sacrifice, which Christ performed on the cross. There will not be a second sacrifice, because there is no need for a second sacrifice.
Jesus Christ will not sacrifice Himself on planet earth, and then go to another galaxy and to another planet and sacrifice Himself for people there, and then go to another galaxy to another planet and sacrifice Himself for people there, and so on, and so on.
There is only one planet earth, and there is only one human race in the entire universe.
That does not mean that there could not have been plant life and such on other planets. This is a very big universe, and we know that God created this universe to be habitable, and that Satan is the destroyer of life. We have already studied that principle. But there is only one human race, and we are it. There is only one human sin, and there is only one sacrifice.
Once a person has believed in Christ, then we too have died to sin.
Since we have died to sin, we are no longer bound by the chains of sin.
Since we are identified with Christ in both death and resurrection, then in life there will never be any further death.
People cannot be reincarnated from one life to the next, to the next, because that would be repeating slavery to death, and then life again, and then death again, and so forth. This would be a complete contradiction of the principles of Christianity.
Christ went to the cross, one time. He completed the work of the cross, in its entirety. He did not miss anything, He did not leave anything out, He did not overlook anything with respect to His work on the cross.
There is only one salvation. There is only one act of faith. There is only one baptism.
Once a person has been saved, once they have been identified through baptism, then there is no further need for additional baptisms or salvations.
This is eternal security.
Once you have been saved by faith in Christ, you have identified yourself with His work, in its entirety.
Since Christ completed his work in its entirety, then your salvation by faith is completed in its entirety.
Once you have been saved, you cannot be unsaved.
Once you have died to sin, that death cannot be undone.
Once you have eternal life, it cannot be taken away from you.
