Where Do You Go When You Die?

A look at what the bible says about where you go when you die.


OT - we are told of a place called Sheol, Num.16:31-33;

         It is in the heart of the earth, all who die go there.

NT - Sheol is Hebrew and Hades is Greek for same place, Lk.16:19-31;

        Here Jesus gives our first insights to Sheol / Hades, wicked are in torment,

       The righteous in Abraham's bosom and there is no crossing over between the two.

        So once you die God judges and assigns you to eternity with wicked or righteous.


Mt.12:40; Jesus says He is going to the heart of the earth, 3 days, 3 nights.

Lk.9:31; Jesus is talking with Moses and Elijah, who came up from Hades and

         they were talking about His exodus, He was on His way to Hades to join them.

Lk.23:43: Jesus to the thief - "Today you will be with Me in Paradise."

Eph.4:9; Jesus descended into the lower parts of the earth (Hades)

1Pe.3:18-20; Jesus preached to those now in torment, via Noah while they were

           still alive on earth. 2Pe.2:5; As He preaches to people today through us.


Mt.16:21; Jesus often said He would be killed and raised on the third day.

Lk.24:6,7; The angels told the women He has risen.

Ac.1:3-11; Jesus was on earth for 40 days then ascended on high.

Heb.9:12; He entered heaven with His own blood, preparing a place, Jn.14:1-3;

Eph.4:8;  When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive. Jesus took all

               the OT righteous ones in Abraham's bosom/Paradise into heaven.

2Cor.12:1-4; Paul knew a man caught up to 3rd heaven, into Paradise,

               which means Paradise is no longer in Hades but now in heaven.

Heb.12:22-24; here we see the church of the firstborn, Christians in heaven and

               the OT righteous made perfect, Heb.11:39,40;

Rev.7:9-17; John sees a great multitude in heaven of people who have washed

               their robes in the blood of the Lamb. Not in future but in the present.


Jn.3:13; No man had ascended into heaven - because the way was not made

             known and the place was not prepared. But by dying for our sins,

             His blood is the way and His blood has prepared a place for us,

             for without His blood there is no forgiveness. Heb.9:11-14;


            The righteous OT people could not go to heaven because the blood hadn't

            been shed but once Jesus died and entered heaven the way was open for all.

            We don't go to Hades when we die as Jesus taught the Jews in Lk.16: because

            He hadn't changed what He came to change, to set us free. When the faithful

            Christian dies he enters into heaven awaiting the judgment day when he shall

            return with Christ to witness the judgment of those alive on judgement day

           1Th.3:13; 4:14;


            The minute you die as a faithful Christian is when you will hear Jesus confess

            your name before His Father, the angels, in heaven, Mt.10:32; Lk.12:8; Rev.3:5;

            Hades is a place only for the wicked today.


           Jesus taught us there is no deep sleep because in Lk.16:24-28; the rich man

            wanted someone sent to his brothers who were still alive, to warn them. This would

            also refute waiting in the grave until judgment day, God is the God of the living not

            God of the dead. Moses and Elijah were very much alive when talking with Christ

            on the Mt. of Transfiguration.


           Looking forward to seeing all my brothers and sisters in heaven the day I die, I pray

           I have the courage to remain a faithful servant until that day and the prayer is for

           all of us to be there united in a song of praise to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!
