Are The Souls Of Those
12:7 Then shall the
dust return to the earth as it was: and
the spirit shall return unto God who gave
God gave you a body, a spirit and gave
you life. He also gave you a free will
to make decisions (choices). He also gave
you this time on Earth (your life) to
decide where you will spend eternity.
You can either accept Christ as your Saviour
and Lord, OR you can reject Christ. No
one will force you to make a decision.
No one can choose for you. Please consider
Jesus! He can make you right with God,
and save you from Godís wrath and the
eternal agony of Hell. This is absolutely
the greatest decision you will ever make!
Please make the right one.
the end of your lifetime, no matter which
decision you have made, your body will
“return to the earth.” We all came
from the “dust of the ground” (Gen.2:7),
and to the dust our bodies shall return.
But, your spirit immediately goes back
“unto God who gave it.”
the question is: “What does God do with
these souls (spirits) who return to Him?”
Will God allow all souls to enter into
Heaven? NO! No way! Only those who have
trusted Christ and accepted Him as Saviour
and Lord will be allowed access to Heaven. Luke 16:22-24 And
it came to pass, that the beggar died,
and was carried by the angels into Abraham's
bosom: the rich man also died, and was
buried;  And in hell
he lift up his eyes, being in torments,
and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus
in his bosom.  And he cried and said,
Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and
send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip
of his finger in water, and cool my tongue;
for I am tormented in this flame. [KJV] “Hell” here is the present day Hell,
or Hades. There is no one in Hell yet
(Rev.20:10). Hades is the holding place
of ALL lost souls (those who have rejected
Christ), until the Judgment of the Great
White Throne (Rev.20:11-15). At that time,
ALL lost souls will be resurrected to
stand before the Mighty Judge.
Passage tells us some basic things: #1.
The unbelieving dead will be sent to a
place of continual torment. Even though
Hades is not the permanent home of these
lost souls, they will still experience
misery and torment, immediately. Just
imagine what it will be like after the
Judgment! #2. All lost souls will have
memories. As soon as they arrive, they
will know, without a doubt, that they
made the wrong decision. They will remember
every time someone told them about Christ,
and remember every word they ever read
about Him. But it will be too late. 3.
Once a soul descends to Hades, it is too
late. NO one can help them in any way.
There are NO exit doors, NO escape, NO
pardons. They are doomed forever to eternal
destruction. As you see from Luke
16:22-24, the rich man (an unbeliever)
went immediately to Hell. He did NOT go
to purgatory. The Bible (God’s Holy Word)
does NOT teach anything about purgatory,
because there is NO such place. IF you
find the word or the doctrine, please
show me where it is in the Holy Bible.
Otherwise I must continue to believe as
I do and teach as I do.
as it is appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment: [KJV] Once a person is dead, there is
NO second chance! NO one can pray that
soul into Heaven. Actually the Bible teaches
the exact opposite. Christ’s SINGLE atonement
on the cross has once and forever cleansed
believers from all their sins so that
they go straight to Heaven immediately upon their death. So there is
NO need for any purgatorial fire to cleanse
them. Jesus paid it all! Jesus makes us
right before God.
10:10-14 By the which
will we are sanctified through the offering
of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
 And every priest standeth daily ministering
and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices,
which can never take away sins:  But
this man, after he had offered one sacrifice
for sins for ever, sat down on the right
hand of God;  For by one offering he hath perfected
for ever them that are sanctified. [KJV]
the unbelievers go immediately to Hades,
and believers go immediately to be with
Christ in Heaven.
2 Cor. 5:6 Therefore we
are always confident, knowing that, whilst
we are at home in the body, we are absent
from the Lord:  (For we walk by faith,
not by sight:)  We are confident, I
say, and willing rather to be absent from
the body, and to be present with the Lord. [KJV] The moment the bodies of
believers die, they are “carried
by angels” into the Presence
of God and Christ.
believe in soul sleep. The Bible does
NOT teach this. Our bodies sleep in the dust of the Earth, but our
soul never sleeps. It is eternal. It does
not sleep. As you have seen, the unbelieving
souls in Hades remember, have memories.
So too do those souls who are privileged
to access Heaven. Death of believers doesn’t
mean darkness for any period of time either.
It means we are immediately in the Light
of God and the Lamb (Rev.21:23).
instance of immediate access to Heaven
for believers is the thief on the cross. Luke 23:42-43 And he
said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when
thou comest into thy kingdom.  And
Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou
be with me in paradise. [KJV] When the thief repented, and trusted
that Jesus could save him, he cried out
to Jesus, and Jesus told him that “today”
you shall be in Heaven. Immediately after
he died, the thief went to Heaven!
Kings 2:11 And it came
to pass, as they still went on, and talked,
that, behold, there appeared a chariot
of fire, and horses of fire, and parted
them both asunder; and Elijah went up
by a whirlwind into heaven. [KJV] Here is another example of access
to Heaven immediately. The great prophet
Elijah! Amazing man! Although this man
did not die, for “God took
him” the same as He did Enoch
(Gen.5:24). Both these men went immediately
to Heaven and into the Presence of God.
One day soon, they will come back to Earth.
At that time, they both will experience
death (Heb.9:27; Rev.11:7).
