Spiritual Death 

Strong's Number: g599  Greek: apothnesko

(b) the separation of man from God; Adam died on the day he disobeyed God, Gen 2:17, and hence all mankind are born in the same spiritual condition, Rom 5:12, 14, 17, 21, from which, however, those who believe in Christ are delivered, Jhn 5:24; 1Jo 3:14. "Death" is the opposite of life; it never denotes non-existence. As spiritual life is "conscious existence in communion with God," so spiritual "death" is "conscious existence in separation from God."

"Death, in whichever of the above-mentioned senses it is used, is always, in Scripture, viewed as the penal consequence of sin, and since sinners alone are subject to death, Rom 5:12, Death came through sin, which is rebellion against God (“ the wages of sin is death….”Rom 6:23). Sin thus involved the forfeiting of the life, it was as the Bearer of sin that the Lord Jesus submitted thereto on the Cross, 1Pe 2:24. And while the physical death of the Lord Jesus was of the essence of His sacrifice, it was not the whole. The darkness symbolized, and His cry expressed, the fact that He was left alone in the Universe, He was 'forsaken;' cp. Mat 27:45, 46." *

And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Rev 20:14-15

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Rev 20:10

This is the Spiritual Death one endures after this carnal death , separation from God in this life, AND--- the lake of fire ,where they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever in the Spiritual Death ( the second death) which means for ETERNTIY under the wrath of God, with a vengence.
