This topic has been debated for centuries, and many have not been able to understand or figure out what happens to you after death.
First, we must all come to the same page about energy. Einstein declared – ‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed in one way or another.’ This statement is accepted (also known as the first law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of conservation of energy). This law states that energy cannot be created because it already exists or is not destroyed; Only models can change that. When the human body is self-destructing, remember that the feeling of “I” is only a 20-watt energy cloud in your head, but always remember that energy can only change form, not destroy it.
Even if you are not a Christian, the above statements are a constant throughout time and space and cannot really be changed or argued.
Each person is made up of (3) energy forms. Each person exists in different (3) forms of energy; Body, soul and spirit.
(Body) The world is conscious and consists of the senses: taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing. It can also be subject to satisfaction or pornography. (The body) may be sick or afflicted, and may be self-sufficient or pleasing to God in its works.
(Soul) self-consciousness, and is made up of: intellect, emotions and will. Intelligence is the mind, thoughts and reason. It can be subject to faith or unbelief and / or confusion. Emotions are: emotions, nature and anxieties, and can be submissive: lust, bitterness, anger, and so on. Will: Our choices and actions, and can lead to disobedience.
(Spirit) God is conscious, and it is made up of: faith, hope, and love. Faith is the assurance and stability nourished by the Word of God. Hope is faith and hope that is maintained by looking at Jesus. Love is motivation and communication nourished by the flow of the Holy Spirit.
When a human body ceases to exist, the person’s soul goes to heaven or hell and the soul unknowingly rests / sleeps until the second resurrection of Christ. This is sometimes called Soul Sleep. The soul is in a period between unconscious death and the final resurrection.
With a better understanding now, I hope to move on to the biblical examples quoted as what happens to us when Christians and non-Christians die.
Here are some quotes from the Bible about what happens to our souls and to our souls after death:
Daniel 12: 2 NIV says; “Many that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake: some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting shame.”
Psalm 13: 3 says; “Hear, O LORD my God, and hearken unto me: enlighten my eyes, that I may not sleep in death.”
Palm 33:20 says NAB; “Our soul is waiting for Jehovah, our helper and shield.”
Matthew 10:28 KJV Jesus says; “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul, but fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Matthew 3:16 says KJV; “When Jesus was baptized, he immediately went up out of the water, and, behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and shining on him.”
Luke 23:46 KJV Jesus says; “And when Jesus cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit:
Acts 7: 59,60 says Stephen, NAB’s first Christian martyr. As they were stoning Stephen, he cried out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” ‘Then he fell on his knees and cried out with a loud voice,’ Lord, do not hold this sin against them. ‘ When he said this, he fell asleep.
There are also thousands of documented cases from people with close experience. Some say they saw Jesus; Some say that after they have already passed, their family members and loved ones meet in heaven. Some say they were in the dark and felt something tear, tear and bite.
John 5:28 tells us: “Do not marvel at this: for all who are in the graves will hear his voice, and the hour will come when those who have done good will rise again to life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of punishment.”
1 Corinthians 15: 52-53 KJV says; “In a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised indefinitely, and we shall be changed.”
I truly hope that the above statements will make clear to you what will happen to our souls and souls in the afterlife.
