Eternal life with God awaits all humans that accept His Son, Jesus Christ that God sent (Himself) to die for our sins (that Adam and Eve rejected in the Garden) and became the Lamb of God that shed and died on a Cross for you and me.

Eternal death is the opposite from Eternal life. All those that reject the Son of God and do not accept Him as Lord and Savior are rejecting God. In the final Great White Throne judgement (and all humans will have a final judgement) will be cased into the Lake of Fire with Satan and the fallen angels, the Antichrist, the beast and all those that rejected Jesus Christ and God's message for Eternal life.

In my humble view the humanity has another form of death, the same kind of death Adam and Eve suffered on their disobeying God. (Kindly see Gen.2:17). We call it spiritual death.

The prodigal son was spiritually dead for a while but he came to spiritual life afterwards (Kindly see Lk 15;24 & 32).

The Bible is silent as to whether Adam and Eve came to spiritual life before their physical death.

In this connection I may be permitted to refer to the statement in the main article:

"In other words, when Christ returns, three things will occur: 
1) The general resurrection of "the living and the dead"; 
2) the final judgment; 
and 3) the inauguration of the eternal state."

I submit that the first thing to occur is the general resurrection of the physically dead and transformation of the physically living. This apart, it seems to me, in view of the above three happenings there is no scope or space for the thousand year rule (Rev.Ch.20). The above three happenings are perfectly believable as we have the words of our Lord Jesus Christ about these three happenings in the Gospels. The thousand year rule is not mentioned anywhere in the Gospels. Apart from Revelations and Daniel(?) we do not have any reference to the thousand year rule.
