What Is The State Of The Dead?

People have all sorts of ideas about what happens when our loved ones die. Did their souls leave their body and float around somewhere? Did it go to Heaven? Did it go into an animal or into another person? I’m glad we have the Bible to tell us what happens.

In the Garden of Eden, Satan told Eve the very first lie. It was about death. Satan said. “Ye shall not surely die.” Of course, Adam and Eve did die. But satan is still telling the same lie today. He says that only the BODY dies. He says that the SOUL keeps on living.  He gets people to believe that the soul goes somewhere after the person dies. It is true that the Bible talks about souls. It even tells us what “souls” are!

The Bible says “And the LORD God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul”

Body + Breath = LIVING SOUL

What happens to a living soul if you take away the breath?

LIVING SOUL – Breath = Dead Body

We bury the  body, and it becomes part of the ground.

Psalms 104:29 says, ‘Thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust’.

When a person dies, the body returns to dust. God takes the breath back to Himself

Eccl 9:5,6 : “The dead know nothing……Their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished”

What is the state of the dead?

  •  This is a deep thought most times.

    When Satan the devil told them that they will die of they eat, they really died. But not their body, their soul died.

    The other question is, did Satan lie to them?

    Was their eyes opened indeed.?

    The things is, in the thing of the spirit, the eyes is not the only means of seeing.

    The state of the dead is rest or unrest. Peace or torment

  • The truth is, only the dead can answer this question. 

    The Bible also states that "After death comes judgment" 

     This means that, though the body is dead but the soul goes to God for judgment. Meaning that we have a chance of living after our body has died

  • The truth is that hat the dead doesn't know anything... So when they are gone they are gone for real,because the Bible even says that they dont know anything again ,being their Mansion house or latest car their closest family or friend their memories are gone too

  • After death comes judgement..

    Works are tried by fire..etc

    One is rewarded of his earthly deeds

  • Really dead is in evitable, for the believers they knew that one day, they will surely live this sinful world and meet the one whose treasures of this world and hereafter is with I.e God Almighty

  • Hmm... I sense there's more to death than judgement after death. Why do we still feel the presence of some that died prematurely around us or why do we still dream real of them that died prematurely crying and warning someone in his dream? Why do someone that  killed the other still rise to take revenge by making him/her suffer before finally killing back in return or all these are just bunch of lies? Truly judgement is for everyone after death but there's more to after death than judgement.

  • The bible said let no man be in position to jydge others least he will be judged so God is the only one who knows there state and he judge righteously for he is righteous

  • Only the dead can have opinion on this...but the Bible clearly stated it to us, base on our dids on earth we should know where we are going after dead.

  • Well the Bible  says, after death is judgement 

    Revelation 20:12 say , and whosoever  was not found written  in the book of life was cast into the lake fire..... God will judge every man according to their works after dead......

  • The Holy Bible made us to know that it is appointed to us  human to die once after death judgement follows. The body is buried while the soul faces jugdment to enter  Heaven or Hell?

  • It would be a failure on our part as well if we dont look at the real truth of the state of the dead. If we are to be realistic and give a logical reasoning to the prophet isaiah's inspired words at Ecclesiastes 9:5 which says the "living are conscious that they will die, but the dead are conscious of nothing at all" .In a sense, it is likened that they are in some sort deep sleep of which they cannot be woken from, they are fully unconscious. In fact, they have cease to exist and can neither do us harm or bring any good thing to us..

    • This is actually strong. People that are dead have been said in the Holy Bible to receive judgment immediately after death and then life is taken from the body and the #soul is still absent
    • The soul then receives judgment on the last day
    • The judgment of the spirit is just a beginning of the Judging order

  • Man is a tripatant being,like being a spirit,he has a soul and leave in a body,well after death comes judgement as it were and only men gives account of his spirit and all that

  • Death is caused by agent of evolutions which includes: accident, poison, Snake bite, fire outbreak, stroke,illness and so many others.

    But here is the thing,

    God said fear not them who can only harm the flesh but him who can destroy both body and soul

    Meaning the body is just a cloth covering your soul .

    So when you die, your soul removes the cloth(flesh) and then goes to the creator for further directives

  • This a mystery to all clerics, as much as everyone would claim to be going to heaven what about others that don't believe in your heaven. 

    Let's leave what happens to the dead for the dead

  • The scripture below says it all:

    Psalms 104:29 ‘Thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust’.

    When a person dies, the body returns to dust. God takes the breath back to Himself

    Until Jesus comes, that is the state of the dead.

  • The common truth is that when a person dies, the body dies but the soul live eternally, it now depends whether the soul will live in comfort or in pain all depending on how the person lived his life while alive

  • Every soul shall taste death. Whenever a man dies, his soul leaves his body and ascends to heaven before it then descends back to earth. On the judgement day, the Almighty will awaken every dead and administer justice thereafter.

  • Death is a must and every one must taste it. The must important this is to do good because we don't know what will after after someone dies so it better to amend your ways and be close to God

  • All sole shall taste death, death is compulsory for everyone , and the Bible says after death it's judgment

  • What a thought questions,  

    I don't thinking anyone know the stage but what I know is that when you above 70 years expecting it at anytime, but no one can raise is hand up saying am ready to die, so we need to do good and receive good , God we help us

  • A man of God simply told me that - when someone dies, their body is going back to dust form after being buried but that their souls roams again till it finds another human vessel to take up as it's body. Is this true?!

  • The state of the dead is clear in the bible, the dead soul faces judgement ;the soul that is righteous goes to Abraham's bossom, while the unrighteous soul goes to hades. Just like the case of Lazarus and the rich man in the bible.

  • This topic has been the one that has been troubling people. The truth is that when you die you can still see everyone and everything around, you would be try to talk, touch and make real life people notice you but they won’t. When you die your soul comes out of you and at a oo when you discover that people don’t notice you anymore ( because you initially won’t know you are dead) then you’d start thinking that are you actually dead? At this point after realizing you then tend to withdraw from your real family and meet the rest of the souls on earth also. The souls don’t go anywhere till a particular time when they go to paradise or hell. Heaven and the lake of fire arefor the judgment day. I hope you understand.

  • Medically the state of dead is when a person stops breathing, spiritually the body dies and the soul goes up and the spirit gives account of your sin. Soul face judgement

  • According to Réne Descartes.  The state of the dead differs in that if a kid or child dies, the soul of the child in habits the body of a new born baby elsewhere and the body of the dead child is brought back as a shell in search for its soul at a certain age of 21. But if the child is above 21 the soul goes to rest.  This adopting his ideology,  the state of the dead is basically undead.

  • The bible already said it after death comes judgement. To me nobody is biger than death or too rich to die. Death is something we can not stop becos we all must die one day.the body will return to sand but the soul will be the one that will face the judgement on that day.

  • We all have the freedom to do what we want as humans. But living right is what's key.

    The after life is something that stirs the mind of every man. Considering we do not know what it holds. 

    Its a whole different chapter when we consider heaven and hell. Personally I believe where we go after death depends on how we live when we're alive.

  • All what I no is that the bible make it clear to us that after dealth come judgment , for God as being given us grace to die once after death comes judgment and except a man is born again he shall not inherit the kingdom of God my brethren in the Lord , seek ye first the kingdom of God the remaining shall be added

  • From the Christian perspective, when a man dies, his flesh is buried and his soul is received up in heaven. His spirit is gone to heaven if born again and Hell for eternal damnation if a sinner

  • When we die our soul is separated from our spirit and our body. The body is buried here in earth and eventually get rotten. The spirit of the man goes for judgement.
