Eternal death - The opposite of eternal life. A death from which there is no hope of a future life. (Matt. 25:46; Mark 3:29; Heb. 6:2; 2 Thess. 1:9; Matt. 18:8; 25:41; Jude 1:7).
The "second death" (Rev. 20:14) will result in the wicked's absolute destruction.
The supposition that God will ultimately secure the repentance and restoration of all sinners is unscriptural. There is not the slightest trace in all the Scriptures of any such restoration.
