Welcome.  Some people believe that sleep refers to the soul being in a state of unconsciousness or nothingness
after the body dies.  I have found no scriptural evidence supporting this idea.

Sleep does NOT refer to the soul being in a state of unconsciousness or nothingness after the body
dies!  To confirm this point, let’s refer to our study titled “Point of Salvation” to the left of this page.

Galations 6:8  … from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Ephesians 4:30  And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God with whom you are sealed for the day of re-
demption.

2 Thessalonians 2:13  … from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the
Spirit and through belief in the truth.

2 Corinthians 1:22  He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a de-
posit guaranteeing what is to come.

These verses tell us that salvation takes place upon the receiving of the Holy Spirit.  The seal of salva-
tion has been given to us while we are alive.  There is no reason to be held in a state of unconscious sleep
after we physically die.  We have received all that we need before our death.

Our souls go directly to heaven or hell after we physically die.

Next week, two more scriptures that confirm this point.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
