Last week we stated that the word “sleep” does NOT mean our soul is in a state of unconsciousness or nothingness
after death.  Our souls go directly to heaven or hell after we physically die.

Let’s confirm this point with two more scriptures.

2 Corinthians 5:8  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

Paul is stating that when he is away from the body, he (his soul) will be with the Lord.  There is no time of uncon-
sciousness or nothingness.

Philippians 1:23  I am torn between the two:  I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.

Again, Paul is stating that when he departs from the body, he (his soul) will be with the Lord.  There is no time of unconsciousness or nothingness.

Eventually, the body will be resurrected as a new glorified and spiritual body.  This body will join with our soul and
spirit.  More on this when we study Revelations.

Next week, the conclusion to sleep.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
