    • 1. 1 WHO ARE YOU? Can your SOUL DIE? What is MANKINDS' Hope after DEATH? One of the most important doctrines of the New Testament scriptures is the Hope of Resurrection. We will consider biblical answers to many interesting question such as: If we automatically go to heaven or hell at death, what is significance of the resurrection and judgment? What will life be like for people on earth after resurrection is passed?, etc.
    • 2. 2 When will people come out of their “tombs” and in what form?  “Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming in which all those in the tombs will hear His voice. And they will come out, the ones having done good into a resurrection of life; and the ones having practiced evil into a resurrection of judgment.” – [John 5:28-29]
    • 3. 3 What is Life?  Understanding Life and Death through the first man  God created Adam  Adam’s soul did not exist before the creation  And Jehovah God formed the man out of dust from the ground, and blew into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. [Gen 2:7] + Breath of LifeL I F E
    • 4. 4 What is Death?  God told Adam after he disobeyed his word in Eden  By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until your return to the ground. For you have been taken out of it; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return. [Gen 3:19]  Put not your trust in nobles, in a son of man, for there is no salvation in him. His breath will go out, he returns to the earth; his thoughts perish in that day. [Psa 146:3-4] - God’s Breath D E A T H
    • 5. 5 What is Death?  Our thoughts perish with death  Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. [Psa 146:3-4]  All our Knowledge, Hope and feelings perish at death  For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun. [Ecc 9:4-6]
    • 6. 6 What is Death?  Death does not differentiate between rich and poor, wise and foolish, righteous and wicked  The wise man's eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness: and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all. [Ecc 2:14]  All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath. [Ecc 9:2]
    • 7. 7 What is Death?  Same destiny for animal and man – there is no difference  I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. [Ecc 3:18-19]
    • 8. 8 What is Death?  Death is a state of eternal Sleep  No alarm you set will wake you up, neither will you dream nor will you snore  And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be. [Job 7:21]  Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; [Psa 13:3]  So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. [1Ki 2:10]
    • 9. 9 Soul is NOT the Breath of Life  The Breath of life belongs to God.  It’s the “power” that keeps us alive  then the dust shall return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God who gave it. [Ecc 12:7]  And behold, I, even I, am bringing a flood of waters on the earth in order to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens. Everything which is on the earth shall die. [Gen 6:17]  Let Jehovah, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation [Num 27:16] - God’s Breath D E A T H Body + Soul God’s breath or life giving power Returns to God
    • 10. 10 What is the Soul?  Soul means  Life  Breathing Creatures  Human emotions of life  Examples – Animals are souls  And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. [Gen 1:21]
    • 11. 11 Examples of Soul in the Bible  People are souls  These were the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah; and she bore these to Jacob, sixteen souls. [Gen 46:18]  Soul is Life  Please say that you are my sister, so that it may be well with me for your sake, and my soul shall live because of you. [Gen 12:13]
    • 12. 12 Examples of Soul in the Bible  Soul is Human feelings  And he also made delicious things and came to his father. And he said to his father, Let my father rise and eat from the game of his son, so that your soul may bless me. [Gen 27:31]  And his soul clung to Dinah, the daughter of Jacob. And he loved the girl, and spoke to the heart of the girl. [Gen 34:3]
    • 13. 13 What happens to the soul after we die?  The soul DIES  We are Dust and go to Dust – just like plants/animals  For that which happens to the sons of men, and that which happens to beasts, even one event is to them. As this one dies, so that one dies; yea, one breath is to all; so that there is to the man no advantage over the beast; for all is vanity. All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all return to the dust. [Ecc 3:19-20]
    • 14. 14 All Souls Die  Behold, they are all My souls. As the soul of the father, also the soul of the son, they are Mine. The soul that sins, it shall die. [Eze 18:4]  The concept that the body is the house of soul that continues to live is not taught in the bible  Soul = body with life  Dead Body = Dead Soul
    • 15. 15 Soul is mortal like the body  And Samson said, Let my soul die with the Philistines! And he bowed mightily, and the house fell on the rulers, and on all the people who were in it. And the dead that he killed in his death were more than those he killed in his life. [Jdg 16:30]  And a man, when he strikes the soul from any man, dying he shall die. [Lev 24:17] Let my soul die
    • 16. 16 Why do we Die?  Adam sinned  Sentence of Death was passed on mankind  We have all sinned  Because of this, even as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death passed to all men, inasmuch as all sinned. [Rom 5:12] God said: You will die Serpent said: You will not die
    • 17. 17 Man is dust! Man Dies! Soul Dies! Is there an Escape?
    • 18. 18 Resurrection is the only escape from Death  And at that time, Michael shall stand up, the great ruler who stands for the sons of your people. And there shall be a time of distress, such as has not been from the being of a nation until that time. And at that time, your people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the Book. And many of those sleeping in the earth's dust shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to reproaches and to everlasting abhorrence. And those who act wisely shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and those turning many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever. [Dan 12:1-3] Note How Daniel refers to death as a state of “sleep”
    • 19. 19 The only man to be resurrected permanently from death till date is Jesus  But now Christ has been raised from the dead; He became the firstfruit of those having fallen asleep. For since death is through man, also through a Man is a resurrection of the dead; for as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. [1Co 15:20-22] Note How Paul refers to death as a state of “sleep”
    • 20. 20 The only man to have gone to heaven is Jesus Christ!  Men, brothers, it is permitted to say to you with plainness as to the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is among us until this day. Being a prophet, then, and knowing that God swore with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loin, as concerning flesh, to raise the Christ to sit on his throne, foreseeing, he spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, "that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption."  This Jesus, God raised up, of which we all are witnesses. Then being exalted to the right of God, and receiving the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, He poured out this which you now see and hear.  For David did not ascend into Heaven, but he says, "The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand until I place those hostile to You as a footstool for Your feet." [Act 2:29-35] King David is still in his grave
    • 21. 21 What happens at the Resurrection?  Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming in which all those in the tombs will hear His voice. And they will come out, the ones having done good into  a resurrection of life;  and the ones having practiced evil into  a resurrection of judgment. [Joh 5:28-29]
    • 22. 22 How can you be part of the Resurrection of Life?  He "will give to each according to his works:" everlasting life truly to those who with patience in good work seeking glory and honor and incorruptibility; but to the ones truly disobeying the truth out of self-interest, and obeying unrighteousness, will be anger and wrath, [Rom 2:6-8]
    • 23. 23 What is life after Resurrection?  For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but they are as the angels of God in Heaven. [Mat 22:30]  "Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. [Mat 25:31- 34]
    • 24. 24 When will the Resurrection occur? - At the return of Christ  But I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who sleep, that you not grieve, as the rest also, not having hope.  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him all those who have fallen asleep through Jesus.  Because the Lord Himself shall come down from Heaven with a commanding shout of an archangel's voice, and with God's trumpet.  And the dead in Christ will rise again first.  Then we who remain alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to a meeting with the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. [1Th 4:13-17] Death a state of sleep for the faithful, eternal sleep for the ignorant
    • 25. 25 What happens to the body and soul after Resurrection?  Not all flesh is the same. Humans have one kind of flesh, animals in general have another, birds have another, and fish have still another. [1Co 15:39]  This is how it will be at the resurrection of the dead. What is planted is decaying, what is raised cannot decay. [1Co 15:42] We will be like Jesus
    • 26. 26 Summary  We do not go to heaven (or hell) when we die  We go to the dust  Our body, soul, thoughts, feelings all perish  Jesus is the only man to have escaped death because God raised him from the dead. Jesus was sinless therefore did not deserve to die like Adam.  But God raised him up and destroyed the pains of death, since it was impossible for him to be held in its power. [Act 2:24]  Our only escape from death is the hope of Resurrection in Jesus:  For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also came through a man. [1Co 15:21]  At Jesus’ return we can be raised to eternal life if we are found in Christ or died believing in Christ
