Many don't know about the first and second death, or the difference between them or about the 1000 year reign. The Lazarus Story sheds some insight about the gulf between the two. These things are important to me, but not to everyone.
These words were taken from here: http://www.gracecentered.com/christian_forums/theology/is-jesus-really-all-mighty-god/msg1055140773/?topicseen#msg1055140773

What is the first and second death?

What is the 1000 year reign?

What is the gulf between the righteous and the wicked?

Or in a few words give your understanding of the parable of The Lazarus Story

I brought these things here so as not to hijack the other thread.

You equated spiritual death with the physical death.....
No I most definitely did not equate spiritual death with physical death.  Spiritual death is the result of trespasses and sins (Eph 2:1-2; Col 2:13) and happens in life.
We will find our self in the first resurrection or the second.
That erroneous thinking comes from the false teachings associated with the premillennial view of eschatology.  I won't bother to go into that now other than to point out that Jesus spoke of two resurrections in John, chapter five.  The first resurrection is found in John 5:24-25 while the second resurrection is presented in John 5:28-29.  The first resurrection spoken of in Revelation 20 is one and the same as that Jesus referred to in John 5:24-25.  That is the resurrection for which is said,  "Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power," (Rev 20:6)  There is only one resurrection at the end of the age when Jesus returns and all will participate in it at that time.

But that is a different discussion.  However, I see that as part of your confusion in all of this.
Let us talk about these things in this thread.

I'll wait for GB to start since he seems very confident, or is he...we shall see.
