    Where do we go when we die?

    When a christian dies or otherwise, where do you think the spirit goes?

    I think when non-christian people die, their soul fall into a deep sleep until the day Jesus comes again - Then they will be subjected to judgement. When we sleep, times flies doesn't it? I think many dead are just sleeping.. remember when Jesus raised that girl? He said, "The girl isn't dead; she's only asleep".

    I'm not sure what will happen to faithful Christians, someone told me that they'll go straight to heaven when they die. Perhaps we'll be sleeping just like the others. I need to read the bible more :P

    Our body stays here and our soul goes directly to Heaven or Hell. Heaven, if the Blood of Jesus Christ is applied and if not, a burning everlasting Hell. Our bodies will be raised up at the rapture and then we get a brand new body in Heaven.

    I said we go immediately to judgement. But let me expand.

    When we are alive we are within the constraints of time. Time is something God created and God is not controlled by time. He is past present and future. When we die we are no longer of this world and so we are no longer within time. Many years might pass after our death before the ultimate judgement day on the earth, but to us (as we 'sleep', it is immediate because they no longer have a concept of 'waiting' for judgement day because there is no time in which to wait! incidently, our physical bodies go nowhere! I am talking about our souls.

    I have a really good analogy that I tell my fellow Maths undergrads at Uni but I fear it would fall on death ears (forgive the pun) because it involves some complicated maths but PM me if ur curious ...

    God Bless y'all

    Love Jack

    When a person dies, if they are saved, their soul goes to paradise, but not heaven. Paradise is the place of rest for the believers. That is why Jesus said to the thief on the cross, "You will be with me in paradise."

    Luke 23:43: And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    When Jesus comes again, our bodies will be resurrected and the believers will be taken away by Jesus in to heaven, but the unbelievers will be left behind here on earth, where the anti-Christ will rule for 7 years.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17:

    Verse 16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    Verse 17: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


    When a person who is not saved dies, he/she will go to hell forever and there is no escape.

    This is all I want to share with you.

    God bless you.
    God is Good all the time.

    The great man Paul said "Absent from the body present with the Lord" I do not expect to be hanging around...........where-ever.

    When I die Hallelujah bye and bye.......I will be in his presence.
    Jesus said "I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE"......Without the WAY there is no GOING, without the TRUTH there is no KNOWING without the LIFE there is no LIVING....Thats what Jesus said.

    Of the 3 choices, Heaven was pretty close (to my beliefs). Paradise would have been my choice had it been available. Check 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 where Paul writes of Paradise and the third heaven.
    Please be patient. God is not finished with me yet.

    There is a careful distinction between paradise and heaven. Paradise seems to be in the earth somehow - and it has two sections: one for the saved and one for the unsaved. So directly speaking that's where you would go after death. Then at the coming of Christ all the dead will be resurrected to the judgment seat of God to receive judgment for their living.

    I put that we go to judgment.

    Hebrews 9:27 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,

    Judgment scares us, even as true believers, but think about this: Everyone will be judged. Did you know that you have the option of being judged now, today, instead of on Judgment Day? Confess your sins to God, receive His forgiveness, and He will blot out your sins, to be remembered no more. He chooses to forget them. He will put them as far from Him as the east is from the west. They are not held against you anymore.

    Hebrews 10:17 Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."

    If you chose to wait for Judgment Day, you stand on your own, and we cannot be righteous on our own.
    Believers will still be judged. Everyone will be judged on that day. However, rather than being judged for our sins, we are judged for our good works. We receive our crowns, so to speak. Don't get puffed up though, about receiving crowns... we will put them at the feet of Jesus anyway.
    Remember that God thinks you're worth it! :teeth:
