There are some religions or believers that have been taught that when a person passes away (death) that their soul,spirit will go into what they preach “Soul sleep”.
“Soul sleep”—the belief that the soul rests after death in an unconscious state, or ceases to exist, until the final resurrection.
The Bible has many scriptures about what happens to your Soul at death.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 says, “Then the dust returns to the earth (this is the body), and the Spirit returns to the God that gave it”.
There is a spiritual body and a physical body. Our body is the outer shell that our Soul, Spirit lives inside.
2 Corinthians 5:8, “that when we are absent from our bodies we are present with the lord”.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. (Philippians 1:21–24)
“And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My Spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last.”
There are many scriptures that tells us exactly what happens and where our Spirit goes at Death of our body. Soul sleep is a false teaching.
You see Christ told us,
“And do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul, but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body.”Matthew10:28
When Stephen was about to die he said, “Lord Jesus receive my spirit!”Acts 7:59.
In Luke 16:19–31, Lazarus and the rich man were in “Abraham’s bosom” and “Hades” after their deaths.
When we die, we leave our physical bodies and we are then in our spiritual body and you will also recognize someone in their spiritual body because we look like our self except we are spiritual not physical.
Also notice that both the spiritual bodies of the saved and the unsaved are not in the grave, but instead the saved are in Paradise (“Abraham’s Bossom”) the unsaved are in Hell (“Hades”).
22 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;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
This is speaking about being in Paradise (Abraham’s bosom), and in Hades (Hell).
Abraham tells Lazarus that this isn’t possible, and that if his five brothers don’t want to end up where the rich man is, then they better start following the Word of God.
Our Souls will be renewed and glorified and made eternal.
1 Corinthians 15:42-44 KJV
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
There will also be a Millennium period.
This will be a thousand-year kingdom of peace that Christ will establish in the end times and we will be in our spiritual bodies.
