CONCLUSION:  According to the scriptures, what is meant by sleep?

First, sleep refers to “slumber.”  The following scripture is one example.

Psalms 4:8  I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Secondly, sleep refers to “physical death.”  The following scripture is one example.

Acts 13:36  For when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep (died), he was buried
with his ancestors and his body decayed.

Sleep does NOT refer to the soul being in a state of unconsciousness or nothingness after the body dies.

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

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.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
