Death – Where We Go When We Die

Death – Where We Go When We Die What is the death and afterlife process? What happens after a person dies? Where do we go after we die? Traditionally, most people believe that when a person dies, they either go to Heaven or they go to Hell.  That is the simplest way to look at it, but it’s more complicated than that, and I think it’s worth understanding.  There are 3 different points of time to consider.  In the past (OT times), everyone died and went to Sheol, which contains a safe side and a side of fiery punishment.  Presently, a person dies and their spirit goes to either Heaven or Hell.  In the future, our spirits will come back into our bodies, we will be resurrected, and those in Christ will live with Jesus on earth (not Heaven), while those outside of Christ are sent to the Lake of...
