Why Do All Die?

If the surety or substitute, Christ Jesus, must suffer the penalties of the law, and part of those penalties were eternal death, then must he be eternally suffering death; and if justification or pardon cannot be granted till the demands against the sinner be satisfied, it follows that it cannot forever be obtained; for it will require an eternity to suffer the demand. If he suffered temporal death as a substitute, or in the stead of those under the sentence of death, why do all die?
