The moment you die the soul and the body separate. The body goes into its natural state of decay while the soul goes toward its ultimate destination.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28
Those who have not recieved Christ will find themselves in torment. We will talk about that in detail next week. Those who have recieved eternal life through repentance and faith toward Jesus Christ will awaken to the presence the Lord Himself.
8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. 9 So our aim is to please him always, whether we are here in this body or away from this body. 10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in our bodies. 2 Corinthians 5:8-10 (NLT)
Over the next couple of days I will discuss what the Bible has to say about "judgement".
"...man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment…" Hebrews 9:27
