DO WE GO TO HEAVEN OR HELL NOW OR LATER?

TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: Are people in heaven and hell right now or are they sleeping?

A: In a nutshell, their body is sleeping.

Their soul is in heaven (paradise) or hell (prison). Not necessarily the final heaven (New Jerusalem) or hell (lake of fire), but a temporary resting place.

At the Resurrection the soul returns to the body.

This is difficult to understand because we are trained to focus on either body or spirit, not both.

The Gnostic mentality tends to overemphasize the spirit and see the body as unimportant.

The earthly minded mentality focuses on the Body and dismisses what happens with the spirit.

But God the Creator is concerned with both the Body AND the Spirit at the same time.

3 Scriptures that show how in death, our spirits go to a certain place:

Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

2 Corinthians 5: 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord…
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

1 Peter 3: 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

2 Scriptures that show how in death, our bodies physical elements sleep in the grave:

John 11:11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus SLEEPETH; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

Mark 5:39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but SLEEPETH.

3 Scriptures that show the Resurrection will unite spirits with bodies:

Matthew 27: 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which SLEPT arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

1 Corinthians 15: 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all SLEEP, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

1 Corinthians 15: 42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
