Believer, what happens to your soul when you die?

Want to look at a couple of facts?

  1. You go to be with Christ—which is far better (than anything else).
  2. You go to Paradise [the word for a “park”] which is in the third heaven.
  3. You will be tenting in heaven (i.e., there only temporarily; presumably, after the resurrection to live on the new earth).
  4. You will have a conscious existence.
  5. You will be housed in the place Jesus prepared for you, “at home with the Lord.”

Now, I haven’t given you passages directly attached to each of these facts. If you are interested in doing so, it would be well for you to search them out for yourself—as a Berean. But I will do two things to help you along.

  1. List the pertinent passages to study.
  2. Give you a more correct translation of one of them.

OK; here goes—passages in no special order: 2 Corinthian 5; Philippians 1; Luke 23; 2 Corinthians 12; Revelation 12.

Here’s the translation of Revelation 12:12 “. . . be glad you heavens, and those who are tenting there . . .”

Have fun while being blessed!
