Our First & Second Coming

Is it possible that there are two parts to our lives before the Judgment? Or, “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,” Hebrews 9:27

“For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God;” 1 Peter 4:17

Was Paul judged for his approval of the murder of Stephen? (1 Corinthians 15:9, Acts 7:58) As part of Christ’s bride, does Paul go straight to immortality in heaven when Jesus comes back to raise him? If so, where was his judgment? Does he not first have to repent to Stephen?

Is it possible that “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment [leading to everlasting life or second death].” Hebrews 9:27 with a suggested expansion of thought.

Apparently, some are appointed to die twice. “He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.’” Revelation 2:11

But for some who succeed in the judgment: “Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.  For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-53
