A mention of "hereafter" vs "hereinafter" would be useful. I always associate the former with the afterlife...

Hereafter, when used as an adverb (something that modifies an action word) means exactly the same thing as henceforth. It's a reference to time--from this moment onward. When used as a noun, a thing, it does as you say, refer only to the afterlife. But the term hereinafter means here within the remainder of this document.
