I think this is partially tru, but in Revelations, it clearly details the second death as coming at the end of the 1000 years, after the second resurrection, and the GWT, so unless one embraces fulfilled theology or sees Revelations as totally metaphorical, I can't see any other way to incorporate all those verses in Mt 25; Rev 14, 19 & 20; Romans 2 in a single consistent paradigm, "an administration suitable to the fulness of times";"each in their own order"; "ages to come", without some measure of afterlife kolassis as a consequence for rejecting Christ, or doing evil during all of ones life, etc.
"You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come".
10.... wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.
"Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
I see many verses that indicate that many times the evil do not always suffer until they stand before God in the resurrection, along with the literal statements of Jesus concerning kolassis, unless someone believes Jesus made no literal statements(with which I respectfully disagree).
