Do you know that we must all go through two deaths before we can literally enter the Kingdom of God? Everybody knows that sooner or later we come to the end of our earthly lives; this is our natural physical death. However, there is another type of death that the Bible describes as the death of 'the old man', which everyone must experience through God given faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, either in this life for believers or in the next life for unbelievers, before they can enter the Kingdom of God.
Let us understand what 'the old man' represents and why it is so important to experience the death of 'the old man', before we can enter the Kingdom of God.
The Bible says that the natural heart of man is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, and man does not know this unless God reveals it to him.
