9:5  And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

9:9  Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

9:15  And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Death, physical, Summary:

(1) Physical death is a consequence of sin Genesis 3:19 and the universality of death proves the universality of sin Romans 5:12-14 .

(2) Physical death affects the body only, and is neither cessation of life nor of consciousness (See Scofield "Habakkuk 2:5") . See Scofield " Luke 16:23 ". Revelation 6:9 Revelation 6:10 .

(3) All physical death ends in the resurrection of the body. See "Resurrection" Job 19:25 . (See Scofield "1 Corinthians 15:52") .

(4) Because physical death is a consequence of sin, it is not inevitable to the redeemed Genesis 5:24 ; 1 Corinthians 15:51 1 Corinthians 15:52 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 .

(5) Physical death has for the believer a peculiar qualification. It is called "sleep," because his body may be "awakened" at any moment Philippians 3:20 Philippians 3:21 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 .

(6) The soul and spirit live, independently of the death of the body, which is described as a "tabernacle" (tent), in which the "I" dwells, and which may be put off 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 ; 1 Corinthians 15:42-44 ; 2 Peter 1:13-15 .

(7) At the believer's death he is "clothed upon" with a "house from heaven" pending the resurrection of the "earthly house," and is at once "with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 ; Philippians 1:23 ; Luke 23:43 .

As to the death of Christ, (See Scofield "Matthew 27:50") .

9:28  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
