You assume God could not possibly have died for the sins of sinners He did not intend to save. You limit God by detailing limitations on His power and ability to do things you wrongly assume He has no power to do.If we would understand the ramifications of Christ having tasted death, we would understand that it could not have been for every man without exception. Heb 2:9
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
The word taste
- to taste, to try the flavour of
- to taste
- i.e. perceive the flavour of, partake of, enjoy
- to feel, make trial of, experience
- to take food, eat, to take nourishment, eat
See He experienced death in behalf of every man He died for. The death He eperienced is the death they incurred as the wages of their sins Rom 6:23
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
So these whom He tasted / experience death their behalf, are fully exonerated/discharged from having to experience it for themselves, as the wages for their sins. Death for them has been abolished 2 Tim 1:10
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
Thats a key element in constituting Him Our Saviour, abolishing death for us by tasting death for us.
Its not possible for Christ to have tasted death for an individual and it didn't for that individual abolish death. That would be a detriment to His accomplishment and Him being the Saviour.
Many will have to go into the second death Rev 21:8
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death
Therefore Christ could not have tasted death and abolished death on their behalf.
