Can an Eternal Immortal Being ever die?!?
The Bible says that God has been "from everlasting to everlasting"-Psalms 90:2. At Prov 8:22-31 the Eternal Immortal Being "produced" a Son who became His "master worker". The "Only-begotten Son" died as the ransom sacrifice for man's sins which shows he wasn't Eternal nor Immortal!!-John 3:16. An Eternal Almighty Being cannot dwell on earth nor lower himself into a "slave's form" meaning mortal flesh nor allow His human creation to execute Him because and if he was to die All Mankind Would Be Dead because he is the Source of Life-John 1:18; Exodus 33:20;Rev 16,14; Psalms 36:9. The Only-begotten Son and Ransomer and Redeemer could not resurrect himself from the dead because the dead know nothing at all-Eccl 9:5,6,10. If man was able to take mastery over the Almighty and kill him then he would not be an Almighty, Eternal Immortal Being but limited in His Divine Power and not the Sovereign Lord nor Most High over heaven and earth-Psalms 83:18;Acts 4:24. If Satan and the demons could not kill the Almighty in heaven what makes one think he would allow wicked sinful imperfect mortal humans to so so? Stupid to think such a thing!!!-Rev 12.

Your reasoning is correct. An immortal being cannot die. Jesus was not immortal before coming to the earth. He was God's first creation, but not given immortality until after he came to earth and died as a perfect human. He was like all the other angels in heaven, mortal.
Immortality is a gift.
the Hebrew Scriptures also make plain that man is not inherently immortal. References to the human soul (Heb., neʹphesh) as dying, heading for the grave, and being destroyed are numerous. (Ge 17:14; Jos 10:32; Job 33:22; Ps 22:29; 78:50; Eze 18:4, 20) The Christian Greek Scriptures, of course, are in harmony and likewise contain references to the death of the soul (Gr., psy·kheʹ). (Mt 26:38; Mr 3:4; Ac 3:23; Jas 5:20; Re 8:9; 16:3) Therefore the Christian Greek Scriptures do not dispute or alter the inspired teaching of the Hebrew Scriptures that man, the human soul, is mortal, subject to death. The Christian Greek Scriptures, however, do contain the revelation of God’s purpose to grant immortality to certain of his servants.

The Eternal Immortal Being spoken of in the Bible cannot die. He is spirit and he is life itself, and since his begotten was brought forth out of him Proverbs 8:22-31 he is of the same spirit essence as the Immortal Being and cannot die. John 3:16 says nothing about the son dying, It says: For God so loved the world that he GAVE his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. God's Immortal spirit son was incarnated into the body of Mary (a human) to be born a human so that his human body could die. What died on the cross was his human body not the spirit son of God. Actually, just before the human body died he said: Father into thine hands I commend my spirit. Luke 23:46 For the body without the spirit is dead. James 2:26.
We are all made of a body and a spirit/soul. When God created man from the dust of the ground, he breathe the "breath of life" into the dust he had formed and the dust he had formed became one with the "breath of life" This "breath of life" is not the air that we breathe as many believe. The air we breathe cannot give life, it only sustains life. The "breath of life" is God's life-giving spirit that he breathe into man (dust) and the dust became alive with his life-giving spirit.
As to Eccles. 9:5-6 The dead knows nothing at all neither have they any more a portion FOREVER in ANYTHING that is done under the sun is quite right because only the body dies. The spirit/soul goes to sleep to be awaken at he resurrection. The soul is who we are: the body is what we are. When the body of both Lazarus and Jairus' daughter died, Jesus said they were sleeping. Jesus also said: What and if you shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickens, the flesh profits nothing.
The Eternal Immortal Being is the source from which all life exists.

Immortal beings were long thought of and were known to never dir LONG BEFORE the Christian religion. Examples include the pagan gods. The Christian has nothing of it's own.
