Where Are The Souls Of Those
Who Have Died?
shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return
unto God who gave it. [KJV] 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 God’s wrath
and the eternal agony of Hell. This is absolutely the greatest decision you
will ever make! Please make the right one.
At 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
Now, 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.
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.
Hebrews 9:27 And 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. It's a decision we all must make
BEFORE our death! Do we accept Him? OR reject Him?
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]
So, 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.
Some 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
Another 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! His body stayed on Earth and was
buried . . . but his eternal soul went to Heaven.
2 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).
