Why Did Christ Ahnsahnghong Die?

Okay, some people are really saying that Christ Ahnsahnghong cannot be the 2nd Coming Christ because He died. Using the following scripture, they claim this:

Rom. 6:9 "For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him."

If you read this verse as it is, by itself, it sounds like Christ died once (2000 years ago) and will not die again - even for His 2nd Coming.

Such is an example of one taking a verse and using it OUT OF CONTEXT!

Why don't we start from the top of the chapter, like most people do:

Rom. 6:1"What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

5If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. 6For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.

8Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God."

The death Christ died at His 1st coming was a spiritual death for our sins. By His dying for our sins, we have escaped the spiritual 2nd death (Ref. Rev. 20:11-15; 20:5-6). Those who belong to Him (thru the Passover) will be resurrected with Him. So He will not die again for the purpose of dealing with our sins again. (Check Heb. 9:27-28 NLT) However, in order to be the true 2nd Coming Christ He must fulfill ALL prophecies - including the throne of King David.

King David reigned only 40 years over Israel. As the 2nd Coming Christ coming as the spiritual King David, how an He preach more than 37 years (as Jesus preached 3 years 2000 years ago).

Also think if Rom. 6:9 was referring to a physical death, why did the disciples die?
We must really think before we make a final decision by ourselves.
