What will happen to us after we die?

“Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” (John 5:28,29)

The Creator’s Original and UNCHANGED Purpose for Mankind

“And Jehovah God went on to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life [Hebrew: nesh-ama, force of life] and the man became a living person [Hebrew: ne-phesh, soul].” (Genesis 2:7)

  • body [Hebrew: gewi·yahʹ] + life-force [neshama] = living soul [nephesh] (being, person)

“And God went on to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. Further, God blessed them, and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving on the earth.” (Genesis 1:27,28)

“Jehovah God took the man and settled him in the garden of Eʹden to cultivate it and to take care of it. Jehovah God also gave this command to the man: “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction. But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Gen. 2:15-17)

  • Deceived by rebel angel Satan (Hebrew: resister)

“You certainly will not die. For God knows that in the very day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and bad.” (Gen. 3: 4,5)


“In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return.” (Gen. 3:19)

  • Plug pulled: body minus life-force = unliving soul (person)
  • Immortality of the soul NOT a Bible teaching. Babylonish in origin, spun out by Greeks, “Christianized” by Rome

“The soul who sins is the one who will die.” (Ezekiel 18:4)

“The dead know nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

“On that very day his thoughts perish.” Psalm 146:4

That it, then?

“O that in the Grave you would conceal me, That you would hide me until your anger passes by, That you would set a time limit for me and remember me! If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service Until my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” (Job 14:13-15)

“You will rest, but you will stand up for your lot at the end of the days.” (Daniel 12:13)

“Martha said to him: “I know he will rise in the resurrection on the last day.”’ (John 11;24)

Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” (John 5:28,29)

“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)

“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” (Matthew 5:5)

“The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.” (Psalm 37:29)

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

But does not the Bible also teach that some go to Heaven?

  • Yes, “for an administration.” (Ephesians 1:10)

“You are the ones who have stuck with me in my trials; and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel.” (Luke 22:28-30)

“And you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.” (Revelation 5:10)

“Because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

Paul’s audience was all those anointed after 33CE that now had the covenant opportunity for heavenly life. But they had to die after Jesus (“the way”) and would not be raised until the end times. So no one had yet gone to heaven.

Those that do must die and give up their mortal bodies and are given spirit bodies – they do not have one floating around inside.

  • Soul and Spirit are falsely mashed by Christendom and the rest.
  • “So it is with the resurrection of the dead
  • It is sown a physical body; it is raised up a spiritual body…What is physical is first, and afterward what is spiritual
  • flesh and blood cannot inherit God’s Kingdom
  • but we will all be changed
  • during the last trumpet
  • and this which is mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:42-54)

How many are sealed in that covenant to rule with Jesus in heaven?

  • A “little flock.” (Luke 12:32)
  • “And I heard the number of those who were sealed, 144,000.” (Revelation 7:9)

Over whom on earth do they rule?

  • “And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; those too I must bring in, and they will listen to my voice, and they will become one flock, one shepherd.” (John 10:16)

A great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues.” (Revelation 7:9)

“Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” (Psalm 37:10,11)

    Die to Live 🙂

  1. According to science, nothing actually disappears, everything changes. Our bodies change in obvious ways after death. The energy that animates us most likely changes as well. Possibly by rebirth, maybe becoming a part of the universe in ways we haven't discovered yet.

  2. we dont die simply change state

    "It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals and mournful obituaries…and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise." (Ralph Waldo Emerson

  3. This is one of the greatest questions of all time…

    What happens when we die?

    This all depends how you view this (religious/spiritual/atheism). I could write about my beliefs regarding spirituality, but ultimately what matters is what you believe in…

  4. Nothing. We cease to exist at death. Perhaps some electricity is still surging through our brains, giving us the false notion of still being alive for a few fleeting moments, but death is death. Our brains, the things that make up our personalities, decays into nothing. It doesn’t magically warp to another dimension widely known as Heaven/Nirvana/anything else, we just… die.

    And it’s terrifying. No wonder we invented religion to ease our consciences oh so long ago. And why we stick to our beliefs.

  5. I don't know.
    I do know that no energy in the universe is ever lost, that it is constantly transformed. I do know that when we leave this mortal body, whatever energy we are will transform or continue in some form.
    I do know that humanity and life seems to be too purposeful in order for it to end up being a fluke of nature, an accident that caused us to have the power of reason and logic. I want to believe that there is an afterlife, that we reunite with our loved ones.
    While we are alive, we can show our love and care for others. We can be kind, we can be good.
    All the best.

  6. Energy never dissipates … we are all part of the cosmos … when our essence leaves the shell of our earth form we transcend past the limits of our imagination ..as we are a controlled species and led to believe the rules instilled by the powers to be… however life is like a Larvia upon death the cocoon gets exfoliated and the completion of the metamorphosis occurs and we are finally free:)

  7. When you die it is so traumatic that your pineal gland creates a hallucination of a euphoric whatever. There is a sharp pain, like an electric shock that is super intense, and then no pain, and you drift into euphoria, than you are soil.

    That is my theory, prove me wrong, I would not anyone else's theory.

  8. Die is a real event that does not need any interpretation, and what is really happen after we were died is a great issue that no single mind of thought were going to predict it and accept it all, because it is a matter of belief, those who`s were have had a right believes over their religion and they are going to believe with their Prophet prophecy and those who`s were believe in nature and condition then for nature and condition and those for reality they may not believe with it all, just and only its not real because no one goes back after he was died and tell what he was really saw

  9. We will go into some state of decomposition
    The speed of decomposition will vary depending on what is done to the body, but in the end, we will cease to exist.
    Finish, The End, Stop.
    Sorry, that is all there is to it.

  10. I believe that we will keep being reborn until we reach enlightenment. The form you will be reborn in depends on your karma.
