Man is a three in one being, made up of the Body, Soul and Spirit so also God is three in one made up of God the father, God the son and God the Holy spirit. (Genesis 2:17) “But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”. From St. John’s account, it is therefore appointed unto man to die once and after death judgement.
The death in this analysis refers to the death of Body and Soul. Man has three parts, body, soul and spirit as disclosed. Death, first occur to the body, then the soul. “The soul that sinneth shall die (Ezekiel 18:4). The soul leaves the body to the soul world, where there are no material things but rather the land of souls. There are two camps in the soul world, the Kingdom of God camp and the Satanic Kingdom.
The righteous dwell in the Kingdom of God camp and the unrighteous in the satanic Kingdom. In the satanic Kingdom there are no organization, no rule, it is living by strength, power and might. The wicked and the unrighteous shall be worshipping Satan till the last day. On the contrary, the kingdom of God camp has peace, respect and order, worshipping God till eternity. The last stage of man is the “spirit” stage or the Godly stage.
The spirit in man refers to the breath of God in man. It goes back to the maker or giver (Luke 23: 46), Jesus said “Father unto thy hand I commit my spirit. (Luke 24:39) “For a spirit has no flesh and bones”). Man’s transitional journey therefore starts from the physical world or the body world, then transition to the soul world through death and to the spiritual world with the father in Heaven. The righteous souls are the very ones who end up in the spiritual world. The wicked souls remain in the Camp of Satan, subjecting them to torture, suffering and pain through to hell fire.
